17 April 2007The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) said today that a shortage of contributions has forced it to cut food rations for 1.28 million people driven into camps from their homes during a 20-year rebellion by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) said today that a shortage of contributions has forced it to cut food rations for 1.28 million people driven into camps from their homes during a 20-year rebellion by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). “WFP strongly appreciates the swift response to our March appeal from the UN Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), the United States, Canada and Norway, but unless there are additional contributions from other donors the problem for 1.28 million displaced and 182,000 refugees will persist,” said WFP Executive Director Josette Sheeran. The agency gives internally displaced persons (IDPs) partial rations because they can grow some food on land near the camps to supplement what WFP gives them. In April, WFP was forced to reduce the individual food aid package for the displaced to just 40 per cent of the minimum daily energy requirement of 1,200 kilocalories because of a shortage of contributions. In addition, WFP cut already partial rations to 182,000 mainly Sudanese refugees by 50 per cent. The WFP chief said new contributions are expected to “ease the pressure in June.” But the agency will maintain the 40 per cent ration for the 1.28 million displaced in northern Uganda and reduced rations for refugees until its food supply is normalized. WFP has so far received $62 million of the $131 million it asked donors and the Government to provide for relief and recovery in 2007. Since the LRA rebellion began in 1986, the rebel group has become notorious for abducting children and then using them as soldiers or porters, while subjecting some to torture and allocating many girls to senior officers in a form of institutional rape. The International Criminal Court (ICC) in October, 2005 issued its first-ever arrest warrants against Joseph Kony, the LRA leader, and four of the group’s commanders – Vincent Otti, Okot Odhiambo, Dominic Ongwen and Raska Lukwiya – on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
The couple disclosed that Ms Markle had met the Queen twice, an individual she described as an “incredible woman”.The former Suits star was also a big hit with the Queen’s beloved corgis, with the prince joking: “I’ve spent the last 33 years being barked at; this one walks in, absolutely nothing…”Traditions of a Royal Christmas at SandringhamThe traditions and customs followed by the royal family at Christmas are likely to come as a surprise to Meghan Markle.While most people across the country open their presents on Christmas Day, the royal family still keep to the German practice of opening their gifts on Christmas Eve.

She said Ms Markle spoke to them too. “She said lots of things,” said Ms Wallis, who is in her 70s and from Chesterfield. She was very, very lovely.” At 5pm, guests enjoy tea, scones, sandwiches and cakes from sideboards in the Saloon. Afterwards, they dress for dinner, with the table set with the finest china.Ms Markle will be separated from Harry later in the evening as, sometime after 10pm, on a signal from the Queen, the corgis are led out and the ladies adjourn, leaving the Duke of Edinburgh to serve port or brandy to the men.On Christmas Day, the royals awake to find stockings filled with small gifts and fruit at the foot of their beds. As they made the return journey to Sandringham House after the service was over, Ms Markle and Harry stopped to chat to some of the crowd who turned out in mild conditions.Among them was Judith Wallis, who was sitting in a wheelchair and is staying at the neighbouring Park House Hotel on her first Christmas Day visit to Sandringham.She said Harry recognised her teddy bear called Maureen, which is a mascot for Armed Forces charity SSAFA, and her hat which bore the Gurkha regiment emblem.

Oh my God.”Taking the ring from the little white box and weeping, she said: “Yes, yes, yes.”Mills, who had been tipped off about the proposal, asked how them both how they were feeling, to which Mr Metz said: “I’m feeling great, excited.”Ashley, who said she was not expecting it, replied: “Good, it’s my grandmother’s ring, it’s very pretty.” Miss Millican, from Texas, said the proposal came as a complete surprise.”I had no idea,” she said, adding: “I was definitely very surprised. I never thought he would ask me right before we were about to see the Royal Family for the first time. It was a big surprise.”She said she did not hesitate to say yes.It is her first holiday outside America and she said they had a two-week trip planned in which they would visit London.Mr Metz, of Wisconsin, said he started to plan the proposal in August, asked Miss Millican’s parents in September and was nervous ahead of the day.”It was pretty tough to keep secret as I was so excited,” he said. He added: “It’s memories to cherish forever.”Queen and Duke in good spirits on Christmas EveThe Queen and Duke both appeared in good spirits and health on Christmas Eve, greeting well-wishers as they attended a carol service at the church. Meghan Markle smiles as Prince Harry points to a well-wisher in the crowd at SandringhamCredit:Joe Giddens /PA The Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales were among the first members of the Royal family to be pictured arriving for the early-morning church service at St Mary Magdalene Church. Back at the house, lunch is served at 1pm and they indulge in a giant turkey, reared at Sandringham.They then settle down to watch TV, including – most importantly – the Queen’s Christmas Speech. Christmas at Sandringham is likely to be the first of many for the American actress, who will wed Harry in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday, May 19.’All the stars were aligned’: How the couple metAfter announcing their engagement, the couple gave an insight into their 16-month romance in a BBC interview – and described how they met on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.Ms Markle told how she could not wait to say “yes” to the prince when Harry got down on one knee a few weeks ago as they cooked a roast chicken dinner at his home, Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.Indicating the depths of his feeling for his bride-to-be, Prince Harry said: “The fact that I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly was sort of confirmation to me that everything, all the stars were aligned, everything was just perfect. The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and other royals usually congregate in the White Drawing Room at Sandringham House the day before Christmas to put the finishing touches to a 20ft (6m) tree cut from the estate.Presents are placed on a white linen-covered trestle table, with cards marking exactly where the piles of gifts should be put.And what should Ms Markle buy the woman who is head of state and lives in palaces? Something useful as the Queen apparently likes practical presents, but not overly extravagant ones.The Duchess of Cambridge revealed that she was left stumped over what to buy the Queen for Christmas.”I thought ‘I’ll make her something’. Which could have gone horribly wrong. But I decided to make my granny’s recipe of chutney.” Their appearance at St Mary Magdalene Church’s morning service on the royal estate is a traditional event where they meet well-wishers. “It was this beautiful woman just sort of literally tripped and fell into my life, I fell into her life.” Full interview: Harry and Meghan reveal engagement joy A few months into the relationship, Harry said he had to have “some pretty frank conversations” with Meghan about how her life may change when she entered the royal family.He added: “But I know that at the end of the day she chooses me, and I choose her, and therefore whatever we have to tackle together or individually we’ll always be us together as a team, so I think she’s capable… she’s capable of anything.” Ms Randall said they set out from Chichester in Sussex before 10pm on Christmas Eve and arrived at Sandringham around 2am.”We thought it would be really busy,” she said. “We looked online. We were the first ones here camping in the dark for two hours.”She said they had missed the Queen when she visited Chichester, so decided to make the trip to Sandringham.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to the collision to contact Newcastlewest Station on 069-20650, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any garda station.Sympathy“It was with great regret that we learnt of the tragic loss of Shane this morning following a car accident”, said O’Neill. “He was regarded as one of the association’s most promising up and coming hurling referees and was highly respected by his peers.”“Our thoughts and prayers and those of the wider GAA membership are with his wife Marie, son Shane, mother Ellen, his immediate family and wide circle of friends at this sad time.”Hourigan was the referee for yesterday’s AIB All-Ireland intermediate hurling club semi-final in Navan between Rower-Inistioge (Kilkenny) and Clooney Gaels (Antrim) yesterday.Last year, he was in charge of a number of high-profile games including the All-Ireland minor hurling semi-final between Kilkenny and Waterford and the Munster U21 hurling final between Clare and Tipperary.The GAA President also extended his sympathies and those of the association as a whole to the family of Barry Nash (Clare), a young All Ireland Minor Handball Champion, who was killed in a separate car accident yesterday.Read: Irish man in Australia gets jail sentence for drunken attack on a bouncer read more
Mar 18th 2017, 1:22 PM Osborne’s journalism career: –Didn’t get hired by The Times graduate trainee scheme–Bit of freelance work–Becomes Evening Standard editor— Jim Waterson (@jimwaterson) March 17, 2017 41 Comments Short URL Saturday 18 Mar 2017, 1:22 PM Some on social media mockingly questioned Osborne’s qualifications for the job, announcing their candidacies for unlikely posts.Before entering politics, Osborne briefly did some freelance work for The Daily Telegraph, in 1993.The Standard, Britain’s biggest-circulation evening newspaper, is typically available at transport stops in London for commuters heading home.The paper stopped charging a cover price in 2009, shortly after Lebedev and his Russian businessman father, Alexander, took it over.© – AFP 2017Read: Brexit vote would mean border checks and a “shock” to the North’s economy – Osborne >Read: George Osborne refuses to apologise as he is forced to reverse disability welfare cuts > https://jrnl.ie/3294415 Source: Jim Waterson/Twitter Frankly @George_Osborne will provide more effective opposition to the Government than the current Labour Party— Evgeny Lebedev (@mrevgenylebedev) March 18, 2017 15,378 Views Source: Evgeny Lebedev/Twitter Osborne will remain the member of parliament for Tatton in northwest England.He will edit the paper an average of four days out of five, working at the newspaper in the morning and in parliament in the afternoon once it has gone to print.Last week it was also announced he had secured a post as a global economy adviser for US asset management giant BlackRock worth €750,000 a year.A spokesman for Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the opposition Labour party, said Osborne’s newest appointment made a “mockery” of media independence.It was “yet another example of the establishment revolving door, a closely knit clique who are holding back the British people”, he said. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Share Tweet Email By AFP A Tory finance minister has been named as the editor of one the UK’s biggest newspapers George Osborne is still an MP and also has a €750,000-a-year job with a wealth management company. FORMER UK FINANCE minister George Osborne has been appointed as the surprise new editor of The London Evening Standard newspaper.Osborne, 45, said he was “thrilled” to take on the job and wanted to make the daily “the definitive voice of the world’s most exciting city”.Osborne, a conservative lawmaker, was the chancellor of the Exchequer in prime minister David Cameron’s 2010-2016 government, dealing with the aftermath of the global financial crisis.He was a prominent Remain campaigner in last year’s referendum on Britain’s membership in the European Union.About 60% of the eligible voters in London wanted Britain to remain in the EU, but the UK as a whole voted for Brexit.“We will judge what the government, London’s politicians and the political parties do against this simple test: Is it good for our readers and good for London? If it is, we’ll support them; if it isn’t we’ll be quick to say so,” Osborne said.Osborne reportedly never saw eye to eye with Theresa May, and when she became prime minister in July after Cameron resigned in the wake of Brexit, she replaced him with Philip Hammond as finance minister.Social media mockery The Standard has the fourth-largest circulation of any British daily newspaper, at nearly 900,000 copies.The freesheet’s Russian owner Evgeny Lebedev said Osborne was someone of “huge political achievement, and economic and cultural authority”.His “political viewpoint — socially liberal and economically pragmatic — closely matches that of many of our readers,” Lebedev said. read more

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, Jamaica, November 24, 2016 – Minister of National Security, Hon. Robert Montague, says the dismantling of criminal gangs and degrading their capacity is an important element in the Government’s fight against crime.Minister Montague, who was addressing the opening of the Regional Security Conference on November 22 at the Mona Visitors’ Lodge, said it is estimated that 70 per cent of murders in Jamaica are gang-related.He noted that the security forces have been given added ammunition in the fight to disrupt gangs through the enactment of stronger legislation targeting these criminal groups and attacking their financial base.He said the Government will be targeting gangs and the conditions that give rise to them under the broader national strategy to reduce crime and build a safer Jamaica. The strategy is anchored in five pillars: effective policing; crime prevention through social development; situational prevention; sure and swift justice process; and reducing reoffending.Mr. Montague noted that effective policing, involving a community-based approach, will have the most immediate and obvious impact on crime. “It requires and relies on the building of partnerships between the police and the citizens that they serve. This is coupled with the traditional law-enforcement strategies that are necessary to deal forcefully with the threat posed by criminal gangs,” he said.He noted that the Government is committed to building and maintaining a police force that is professional, disciplined, well trained and properly resourced.Mr. Montague noted that crime prevention through social development is an approach that involves the Government, church, civil society and other partners. “It seeks to tackle some of the social factors that have been among the root causes of the growth in crime, such as poor housing, inadequate family income, poor parent-child relations, poor educational outcomes, and peer associations that encourage delinquency,” he informed.As it relates to situational prevention, the Security Minister indicated that this involves measures that will reduce opportunities for crime and violence by including citizen security in the design and development of communities and public spaces. “It is based on the position that if the physical environment is planned, designed, and managed appropriately, certain types of crimes can be reduced and perceptions of safety increased,” Mr. Montague said.“Of note, it also involves reviewing existing spaces and seeking to make changes that will lead to safer communities. Removing zinc fences, improving lighting, installing and maintaining street signs, and the introduction of closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs) are just some of the ways in which this may be addressed,” he added.Turning to the pillar of sure and swift justice, Minister Montague argued that delays in apprehension of criminals, prolonged prosecutions and diluted punishment increase the pain of the victims and their loved ones, discourage law enforcers, give comfort to offenders and embolden the criminally inclined.Reducing reoffending is an important element of the crime strategy, as it involves a policy of rehabilitation that redirects offenders from pursuing careers in crime into becoming productive law-abiding citizens when they return to society.The security conference, under the theme ‘Policing Security: Strategies and Solutions in Addressing Gang-related Crimes’, was held in collaboration with the Jamaica Constabulary Force (UWI) and the UWI Open Campus.

Fishermen, scientists, and seafood industry representatives from around Alaska — and the country — are in Sitka this week for the meeting of the North Pacific Fishery Management Council. That’s the body that regulates all federal fisheries off Alaska, including pollock, cod and flatfish.The big, hot button item on the agenda is whether to limit halibut bycatch in the Bering Sea. Small fishermen up and down the coast are pushing to reduce the number of halibut taken and discarded by big boats targeting groundfish.But the Council has several other issues on its plate.That includes updates on the federal Observer Program, which places biologists on fishing vessels to monitor how much fish — and what kind — are caught. Two years ago, the program began placing observers on small boats, mostly in the longline halibut fleet. Small fishermen have protested that the extra person is a burden, and have asked for an electronic monitoring program, using cameras instead.The Council will also decide on overfishing limits for three species of crab in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands. And they will discuss a proposal to allow vessels fishing for golden king crab to offload parts of their catch in Adak, as part of an effort to sustain a live crab market there.The Council itself will hold its first day of meetings Wednesday, June 3. It will begin by taking reports from staff and agencies. The Council is expected to take public comment on halibut bycatch late Wednesday or Thursday.So far this week, two committees that advise the Council have been combing through reports on the various issues. The Scientific and Statistical Committee will meet through Wednesday. The Advisory Panel, made up of industry representatives, will meet through Saturday. That panel will take public comment on halibut bycatch Wednesday. read more

COPY LINKAD Loading … US space agency NASA has admitted that the original recordings of the first humans landing on the moon 40 years ago were erased and that the restored copies of the original broadcast are being used and they look far better. But the claim has left conspiracy theorists up in arms alleging that it was a cover up operation to hide anomalies in their original recordings that are being questioned with the help of advanced technology. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin walks on the surface of the moon near the leg of the lunar module Eagle during the Apollo 11 mission, mission commander Neil Armstrong took this photograph with a 70mm lunar surface cameraNASAThe widely circulated original NASA image shows Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin standing on the Moon, next to their vehicle Eagle on July 20, 1969. It also carried astronauts Neil Armstrong, who was the Mission Commander and the first man to step on the Moon, Michael Collins, who was the Command Module pilot, besides Aldrin, who was the Lunar Module Pilot. The image was taken by Armstrong.NASA has claimed that the photograph has been improved with digital make-over of the original landing footage that removes the blurry and grainy images of Armstrong and Aldrin seen walking on the moon. Burbank, a California-based Lowry Digital firm will be released in September, while the preview is made available at www.nasa.gov.Way back in 2006, NASA had admitted for the first time its original video recordings of the July 20, 1969, landing were not traced and its engineer Richard Nafzger has been looking for them since then at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.Now NASA says that the tape has been found and it was magnetically erased and re-used to save money. Nafzger, however, refuted the argument of conspiracy theorists who believe the entire moon landing mission conducted six times from 1969 to 1972 was staged on a movie set or secret military base.”This company is restoring historic video. It mattered not to me where the company was from,” Nafzger said, brushing aside criticism of using a Hollywood-based company for the purpose. “The conspiracy theorists are going to believe what they are going to believe,” said Lowry Digital Chief Operating Officer Mike Inchalik.Nafzger said someone else in Sydney also made recordings but “these tapes are not in the system. We are certainly open to finding them.” (With inputs from Reuters) read more

From survivor’s guilt to the action girl, Doctor Who’s cup runneth over with repetitive motifs.Each week, I’ll tackle another trope, examining its use, effectiveness, and relevance to the long-running BBC show. Now, who’s ready to trock!A GOOD NAME FOR A ROCK BANDMeaning: An unusual-but-cool-sounding phrase a character jokes would be “a good name for a rock band”Usage in Doctor Who: Everything in the Whoniverse sounds like a great band nameWhat do Fall Out Boy, Wu-Tang Clan, Veruca Salt, Save Ferris, Duran Duran, and The Fratellis have in common?They are all artists who watched a movie (or The Simpsons) and said to each other, “That’s a good name for a rock/hip hop/ska punk/synthpop band.”But 1980s films aren’t the only treasure trove of inspiration: Doctor Who has spawned a number of performing groups, as well as its own genre of music.Time Lord Rock, or Trock for short, launched nearly a decade ago in the UK, when Chameleon Circuit released their self-titled debut album. A second record, 2011’s Still Got Legs, charted on British iTunes, and hit the US Billboard Heatseekers at number 23.Trock hasn’t quite broken North America yet; performers are usually Brits or Aussies, though Chicago-based Time Crash is helping to cement the genre’s status across the pond.Turn on any episode of Doctor Who and you’ll be swimming in possible epithets. Why not make a drinking game out of it? Just take a shot every time a character mentions a planet, device, or creature whose name would look great on a ticket stub.In spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures, the Tenth Doctor describes foe Trickster as “a creature from beyond the universe”; one of “the Pantheon of Discord”—a title, Clyde mused, that would make a good band name.“Actually, not bad,” the Doctor agrees.(Tenth Doctor David Tennant echoes that sentiment as Kilgrave in Marvel’s Jessica Jones, when the titular character says she “followed the trail of misery,” to which the supervillain suggests “that’s a good band name.”)Stream all of Doctor Who now for free with your Amazon Prime membership. read more
Kolkata: State Education minister Partha Chatterjee urged the teachers and administrators of Bethune College to make efforts to spread their good values and practices among other colleges in the state as well.”I sometimes wonder there are so many colleges in the state but institutions like Bethune College has been able to maintain a standard of excellence not only in academics but in other activities too. You should come forward and spread the message of how you are inculcating good values and practices among your students to the other colleges also,” Chatterjee said at the annual prize distribution and inauguration of some new facilities at the 140-year-old Bethune College on Wednesday. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedHe made it clear that the government alone cannot do everything and good colleges like Bethune, Lady Brabourne, St Xaviers should come forward and take up the job of passing on their values to other colleges through seminars or other interactive sessions. “Excellence should not be confined within your own boundaries. You have to go beyond and pass it over to rural colleges also,” the minister said. Chatterjee also mentioned the first lady graduate from the state — Kadambini Ganguly — who was from Bethune, the first women doctorate Asima Chattopadhyay, who was also from Bethune and lauded the efforts of the institution in India’s freedom struggle. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseChatterjee maintained that the government is making serious efforts to raise the level of higher education in the state and has started 42 new universities and 6,500 higher secondary schools in the state since 2011 after the Trinamool Congress government took over. “The enrolment ratio that was 11.92 percent in the year 2011 has gone up to 20 percent now.” The minister also stressed on collective force of the teachers, administrators, non-teaching staff and students to earn a good reputation of an institution and remarked that Bethune has set a precedence in this regard. read more
