Iraq UN human rights official urges stronger action to protect civilians

7 June 2011A senior United Nations official has called on the Iraqi Government to do more to protect civilians from violence, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) reported today. Ivan Šimonović, Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights, welcomed the Iraqi Government’s convening of a conference this week to address rights problems, but also “condemned the numerous cases of enforced disappearances, arbitrary detention and alleged torture that have been reported throughout Iraq,” OHCHR said. “It is important that the Government does all it can, to ensure that civilians are protected from the ongoing violence, and that any person suspected of perpetrating acts of violence is held accountable according to the law,” Mr. Šimonović said at the end of a 10-day visit to Iraq. “As a signal of the seriousness of its intent to tackle the problem, I urge the Government to complete ratification of the Convention Against Torture as soon as possible,” he said. “Respecting human rights, including while countering terrorism is both a moral and practical thing to do. If the fight against terrorism makes martyrs of terrorists, it backfires.”He reiterated that torture is unequivocally prohibited under international law and cannot be condoned under any circumstances, and raised concerns about the protection of civilians and the deteriorating human rights situation of women and religious and ethnic minorities, as well as attacks on freedom of expression. Concerning the demonstrations that are taking place in various parts of Iraq, Mr. Šimonović noted that many of the protesters’ demands centre on legitimate calls for improved access to basic services, jobs and better living conditions. “Being criticized by the media or by protesters on the street is something that no government likes but as long as protests are peaceful and the government is democratic, they should lead to dialogue and not confrontation,” he said.During meetings in Erbil with officials of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Mr. Šimonović “raised concerns relating to the protection of women and freedom of expression,” OHCHR said. Mr. Šimonović welcomed the Government’s intention to develop a national action plan to implement the recommendations of United Nations human rights mechanisms, OHCHR said.In a statement sent to a conference discussing the draft national action plan, Mr. Šimonović said: “The discussions have been fruitful; many tough issues have been raised and considered; and recommendations have been made for addressing the challenges facing Iraq and to ensure that the basic rights of all Iraq’s people are better protected and respected in the future.”“It is the obligation of governments to ensure that the rights of all citizens, without discrimination, are respected and protected. The events in North Africa and the Middle East have shown that the more governments disregard elementary rights, the more determined the response of the people becomes to repression of their freedoms,” he said in the message to the conference. Earlier this week, Ad Melkert, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Iraq, congratulated the group for including all sectors of society – including the Government, the judiciary, academia and civil society. Mr. Melkert also welcomed the Government’s commitment to start work on a national action plan, and he voiced hope that an independent human rights commission will soon be formed. read more

Scotiabanks commodity index falls 41 per cent in June amid broad weakness

by Romina Maurino, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 30, 2013 1:41 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Scotiabank’s commodity index falls 4.1 per cent in June amid broad weakness TORONTO – Scotiabank’s (TSX:BNS) commodity price index fell by 4.1 per cent in June after rallying in May, the sharpest decline since late last year amid weakness in all sectors.The report said oil and gas saw the biggest drop at 5.7 per cent, followed by a 3.7 per cent decline in forest products, three per cent in metals and minerals and 2.6 per cent in agricultural prices.Commodities have been pressured since mid-June following comments by U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, who mused about whether the Fed should begin tapering stimulus, triggering a selloff in precious metals, which lasted until it was clarified no such measures would be taken unless warranted.Prices were also hit by a stronger US dollar on expectation of less liquidity, as well as by a temporary liquidity squeeze in China when the People’s Bank allowed overnight rates to jump over 30 per cent, unnerving markets overseas, the report said.June’s declines are not, however, likely to last into next month.“The index will be underpinned in July by a return to stronger oil prices in Western Canada and the beginning of another upswing in lumber and oriented strandboard prices, after a sharp, seasonal inventory correction,” said Patricia Mohr, Scotiabank’s vice president of economics and commodity market specialist.She also noted that the closing of the price gap between West Texas Intermediate, a North American benchmark for lighter crude, and the world benchmark of Brent crude could point to stronger earnings for the second half of the year in Western Canada.“After trading well below Brent in late 2012… and early 2013, WTI oil prices surged to US$108.05 on July 19, reaching virtual parity with Brent,” Mohr said in the report.That jump came as traders anticipated an end to a oil supply glut at the Crushing, Oklahoma, hub and rapidly rising new supplies of “light, tight oil” and Alberta oilsands, which has kept WTI below Brent for the past three years.Mohr also noted domestic and export markets are likely to see valuable opportunities from TransCanada’s proposed Energy East Pipeline project, which would open outlets for Alberta and Saskatchewan crude in Eastern Canada and export markets.The project would allow access to less expensive and more secure domestic crude oil, she said, allowing displacement of imports into the Suncor Energy and Ultramar refineries in Montreal and Levis, Que., as well as the Irving Oil refinery in Saint John, N.B.It would also mean greater access to stable supplies of domestic oil, improvement in the financial viability of current refineries and even eventually encourage development of a larger domestic refining industry in Quebec and Atlantic Canada, as well as provide much-needed new export outlets for Western Canada oil to Europe, India and the U.S.“The development of overseas export markets remains vitally important for Western Canada’s oil industry,” Mohr said.“With output in Alberta expected to climb annually by 225,000 barrels per day from 2013-22 plus growth in Saskatchewan, in an environment of rising U.S. domestic supplies, developing low-cost transportation infrastructure to access overseas export markets is critical.” read more

No clear evidence social media leads to more violent behavior UNbacked study

“Rather than being initiators or causes of violent behaviours, the Internet and social media specifically can be facilitators within wider processes of violent radicalization,” according to research conducted for the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).The goal of the study was to answer the question: “Does social media lead vulnerable individuals to resort to violence?” According to the authors, violent radicalization generally entails a number of tools, and should be seen in the context of other communication platforms and significant social factors, such as the political, social, cultural, economic and psychological causesThe findings, Youth and violent extremism on social media, are based on more than 550 studies in Arabic, English and French which were published in scientific literature and so-called “grey literature” outside of the traditional and publishing channels.The study also found that the use of social media is meant to foster fear among internet users and to polarize societies.In response, attempts to combat social media use have not proved effective, but could “damage online freedoms, especially freedom of expression, freedom of information, privacy and the right to association,” the study reported.Among other points, the authors recommend that Governments should recognize the status of women as both actors and targets of online radicalizations, and support greater representation of women.The study also recommends that news media avoid “fearmongering, stereotyping, confirmation bias, fake news and the creation of “media panics”, and to reassert the importance of media ethics in the face of radicalization of young people for violent extremism.” read more

Piratage informatique une entreprise américaine sanctionnée pour sa pauvre sécurité

first_imgPiratage informatique : une entreprise américaine sanctionnée pour sa “pauvre” sécuritéÉtats-Unis – Malgré les recommandations ayant suivi son audit, une entreprise américaine n’a pas protégé ses données informatiques. Résultat : des pirates lettons se sont appropriés les données des clients. L’affaire a fini les tribunaux.D.A. Davidson & Co. est une entreprise du Montana. Elle vient d’être sanctionnée d’une amende de 375.000 dollars après que des pirates lettons ont volé sa base de données de 192.000 clients. Ces informations, en “libre service”, n’étaient même pas protégées par un mot de passe. Les hackers avaient essayé d’en tirer profit fin décembre 2007, selon le site PC INpact. Pourtant, un audit avait préconisé à l’entreprise de renforcer la sécurité de son système informatique. Les dirigeants avaient préféré ne rien faire. Aujourd’hui, trois des quatre pirates sont extradés aux Etats-Unis et attendent leur jugement. En France, la sécurité autour des données informatiques relatives à la vie privée est obligatoire.Le 15 avril 2010 à 15:35 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Des drones made in Afghanistan peu chers et pacifiques

first_imgDes drones “made in Afghanistan” peu chers et pacifiquesUn ingénieur afghan a mis au point des drones à vocation entièrement pacifique à partir de quelques bouts de plastique, de liège et des moteurs de tronçonneuses. Les cinq engins sont tous parfaitement fonctionnels.Zemaraï Elali est, grâce à ses talents de bricoleurs, à la tête d’une flotte de cinq drones “made in Afghanistan”, à vocation 100% pacifique. Avec ces cinq engins, “deux grands et trois petits”, cet Afghan de 45 ans ferait presque de la concurrence à l’armée américaine. Mais ce qui surprend le plus, ce sont les matériaux utilisés par leur créateur. Cité par l’AFP, celui-ci explique que “le fuselage est fait de plastique, de liège, de bambou et de quelques métaux. J’ai utilisé des moteurs de tronçonneuses pour propulser l’avion, parce qu’ils sont plus légers”.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Une démonstration a eu lieu le 21 mars dernier devant le gouverneur de la province de Nimroz (sud-ouest) et quelques responsables locaux.

Japan buys mammoth F35 fleet to checkmate China how does the move

first_imgWith Japan placing orders for more than 100 of the most advanced F-35 fighter jets from the US, the military equation in Asia is set to change permanently. With this move, US President Donald Trump has successfully checkmated China’s rising military expansionism in the South China Sea and beyond. In a clear fallout, India too stands to benefit from the strengthening brace against China in the region.Japan’s decision to buy 105 F-35 Lightning jet fighters from the United States was announced in December but the confirmation came during Trump’s Japan visit this week. “This purchase would give Japan the largest F-35 fleet of any US ally.” Trump said in Tokyo.Military experts have said the move is meant to give Japan the firepower it needs to counterbalance the recent aggressive posturing of China in the region. They warn that the ‘pacifist’ Japan’s move to increase military assets will fuel an arms race in Asia.”The [F-35 deal] can help Japan counterbalance threats from China … and it can be seen as a vital part of the worldwide coercion strategy of the US … This is bound to upset the balance of power in the Asia-Pacific region, given the large quantity of warplanes ordered by Japan,” said Zhou Chenming, a Beijing-based military expert, according to the South China Morning Post.

COPY LINKAD Loading … Close China had made headway in the stealth fighter race in the region with its J-20 fighters, but with Japan acquiring a gigantic fleet of the latest Lockheed Martin-made F-35, the People’s Liberation Army will feel the heat. The single-seater and twin-engine Chengdu J-20 was blooded by the Chinese Air Force in February last year. In November, the Air Force showcased the J-20 stealth fighters with full missile loads at its biennial Zhuhai air show.Setback for China’s J-20 programmeChina also suffered a setback with its ambitious J-20 programme, which it claimed was an answer to the US F-22 and F-35, when it was reported that the J-20 suffered from engine problems even after its deployment.With Japan acquiring the F-35 fleet, China will go into an overdrive to rescue its Chengdu J-20 and modernize it further.”The purchase will definitely trigger a regional arms race, prompting China to do the same by developing and deploying more of its own advanced stealth fighter jets in the region to counter the military presence of the US and its allies,” Song Zhongping, Hong Kong-based military analyst and formerly an instructor with the PLA Artillery Corps, told the SCMP.Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, both nationalists, have been more alert to the increasing military threat from China than their predecessors. While the F-35 deal will give Japan air superiority that would make China cringe, the move is also aimed at containing the North Korean threat. In the bargain, India, which too has felt the heat of China’s strident militarism and India encirclement strategy in the recent years, will also benefit. US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump walk with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and wife Akie Abe as they arrive for dinner at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida on April 17, 2018.MANDEL NGAN/AFP/Getty ImagesFree and Open Indo-PacificJapan sees the F-35 deal essentially as part of its commitment to create “Free and Open Indo-Pacific” and to ensure “rule of law, freedom of navigation and free trade” in the region. This is as much important to India as for Japan. The US foreign policy, in recent years, has also given pre-eminent attention to restricting the Chinese expansionism in the seas around it.Under Abe, Japan accelerated it emergence from the post-World War II pacifism, a shift in strategy that indicated that an unquestioned Chinese domination in the region was being challenged.The US aims to contain military and geo-economic reach of China resulted in greater cooperation between US, Japan, Australia and India and the subsequent formation of the Quad quartet. With Japan reasserting its rightful place in the security calculus in the region the much-needed military balance will be the result. As Brahma Chellaney wrote in Japan Times, the cooperation between Japan and India will strengthen following the re-election of Narendra Modi with a thumping margin.

How UTAustins Bold Plan for Reinvention Went Belly Up

first_imgProject 2021 was full of grand ambitions but had too little support to succeed.  The story of the program’s rise and fall, based on more than 20 interviews and a review of emails, reports, and other documents, shows how universities too often pursue the elusive act of transformation: promising too much while investing too little. Campus leaders in Austin had used sweeping words to describe the potential of Project 2021: Futuristic. Next-generation. Bold. Higher education is “in the throes of a revolution,” one progress report read, and Project 2021 would meet those challenges. “Even the best,” Fenves said in his address, “can do better.” Not two years later, Project 2021 was dead.  In five years, he said, the university wanted most of Austin’s students to be able to enroll in revamped degree programs. Project 2021, officials would later say, would incorporate state-of-the-art online classes. Redesigned curricula. An academic calendar that included short courses outside of traditional semesters. And researchers would dig into data to examine every aspect of the undergraduate academic experience — to measure what worked and adjust accordingly. center_img In retrospect, even as Fenves gave his address, warning signs blinked red. Read the whole story: The Chronicle of Higher Education The Austin president hadn’t been alone in promising to do things differently.
