Gandhis message of nonviolent struggle key to facing modern threats – Ban

2 October 2009Mahatma Gandhi’s legacy of non-violence in the face of aggression is an enduring symbol of hope for leaders and grass-roots campaigners alike in defeating the growing number of hostile forces threatening the modern world, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today. In a message marking the third annual International Day of Non-violence, observed on 2 October in honour of Mr. Gandhi’s birthday, Mr. Ban said that Mr. Gandhi understood that a powerful idea could change the world.“He knew that individuals, working alone and together, could realize what others might dismiss as impossible dreams,” Mr. Ban said of Mr. Gandhi, whose non-violent struggle led to an independent India and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom around the globe.“We strive, for example, to rid the world of weapons of mass destruction,” he said. “Recent initiatives and meetings, including last week’s Security Council summit on nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation, have improved prospects for reductions in global arsenals.”Mr. Ban underscored the importance of sustaining this momentum, and called on the international community to press for success at next year’s Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty review conference and beyond.“The call to non-violence need not apply only to the use of deadly weapons,” he added. “The United Nations and its grass-roots partners have long campaigned to stop the human assault on our planet.”Greenhouse gas emissions have long threatened the planet, he said, urging activists everywhere “to turn up the heat on world leaders to seal a deal at the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December.” read more

UN chief strongly condemns latest attacks in Central African Republic

In a statement, his spokesperson said Mr. Ban is “very concerned” about the prevailing situation in the country which he described as “volatile, unpredictable and lawless.”“He is particularly worried about the increasing number of targeted attacks and retaliations against Muslims and Christians, including the most recent incidents on the Bossangoa-Bossembele axis,” the spokesperson said referring to the northwest part of the country.The CAR – which has been marked by decades of instability and fighting – witnessed a resumption of violence last December when the Séléka rebel coalition launched a series of attacks. A peace agreement was reached in January, but the rebels again seized the capital, Bangui, in March, forcing President François Bozizé to flee.In today’s statement, Mr. Ban called on all parties, including ex-Séléka combatants and new self-defense groups, to refrain from acts of violence against civilian populations, and to respect human rights. He also reminded national authorities of their responsibility to bring to justice perpetrators of these massacres and protect all Central Africans from abuses. read more

Letter Distressing that the elderly have to wait for attention that

Dear Editor,I turned up at a Post Office on the East Bank on Monday morning (May 8), at about 07:00h, to encash an NIS voucher. As I entered the building through an open door, a member of staff said to me in a tone of voice that bordered arrogance, “We en open yet!”I said to her, “Would it be okay for me to sit on your bench here and wait?”To this moment as you read this, she did not give me a response. So I sat down on the bench to wait, with my voucher and identification card in my hand visible for all to see at the ready.As I sat there, four other persons joined me as the clock ticked. At 7:30h, a woman went to the counter and enquired, “Morning. Can you say how much longer we have to wait?” The clerk replied, “I doan know.” (More arrogance).The woman asked, “Why?” Another clerk shouted, “ We ain’t gat no money!”All this time, the Post Mistress is sitting there.Now, a few thoughts crossed in my mind:why are GPOC staff not trained in the methods of communication?why couldn’t someone say to us from the beginning that cash was not available, and perhaps would be available later or not at all; so that we, who were waiting, could have made a decision to wait or leave?It’s distressing, to say the least, that elderly people are made to sit/stand in a line and wait for attention that no public servant seems willing to give, even during official working hours; while those public servants merrily chatter.If the Post Mistress is going to sit idly while all of this happen, then there is no hope for a change occurring in the near future.Having spent most of my working years in the private sector, and mostly as a frontline employee, such an experience really disgusts and deflates me, as well as leaves me feeling a profound sense of neglect by those paid to serve the elderly public.Sincerely,David Mortley Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedLetter: Leaders have to remember they are there to serve the peopleJanuary 23, 2017In “Letters”Public Servants no longer have to wait 3 months for salariesJuly 12, 2019In “latest news”Opinion: Not first time the Clerk has rightfully disregarded the Speaker in Guyana’s Parliamentary historyNovember 1, 2014In “Opinion” read more

Balance in global power generation to tilt towards developing nations

first_imgIndia and China are set to dominate, gas to experience highest growth rates among fuels as coal’s prominence fades, according to Frost & Sullivan. Over the next two decades, the traditional developed regions will lose ground in electricity demand to emerging markets. Rapid urbanisation and the creation of a middle class will drive the demand for electricity in these economies as a wealthier population takes up electric appliances.The bulk of this growth is anticipated to come from India, China and ASEAN, with the combined share of these three regions rising from 27.5% in 2010 to 40.1% in 2030. The power generated by China is forecast to exceed that of North America by 2015.Frost & Sullivan’s Annual Global Power Generation Forecasts 2012, finds that during the current decade, gas will see the highest growth rate among the major fuels. Nuclear power, despite some delays after the Fukushima disaster, will also expand strongly due to the large number of nuclear plants currently under construction, particularly in Asia. Strong growth also is projected for renewable energy, with non-hydro renewables (wind, solar PV, CSP, biomass, geothermal and marine) substantially expanding their share of power generation over the next two decades.“The growth of coal is not far behind as emerging nations such as China and India rely strongly on this fuel,” noted Frost & Sullivan Industry Director Harald Thaler. “Nevertheless, growth of coal-fired generation is expected to fall massively during the subsequent decade as developed countries decommission capacity and emerging nations become more diversified in their fuel mix.”Over the 2010-2030 period, the combined share of the developed regions of EU, North America and OECD APAC in global power output will drop from 48.6% in 2010 to 37.1% in 2030. Russia will not match the growth rates witnessed in its BRIC peer nations, with its share of global power output gradually declining from 4.9% in 2010 to 4.1% in 2030.At the same time, electricity demand between 2010 and 2030 will rise fastest in India, followed by the ASEAN group of nations and then China. Conversely, the three developed regions of EU, North America and OECD APAC will all record relatively anaemic demand growth of 1% per annum or less on average over the period as stagnant population increases and more efficient energy use curtail demand growth.“Given their status as rapidly developing economies and future economic superpowers, it is not surprising that the share of China and India in global electricity generation is growing across all fuel sources,” remarked Thaler. “While both countries are very strong in hydro and wind power, it is in gas and nuclear that these nations will massively outpace developments elsewhere, albeit growing from currently very modest levels.”last_img read more

Another shutdown averted as US lawmakers announce twoyear budget deal

first_imgCONGRESSIONAL NEGOTIATORS REACHED a modest two-year US budget deal Tuesday that would avoid a repeat of October’s government shutdown, signalling a temporary truce in fiscal wars that have paralysed Washington.The agreement, brokered by Democratic Senator Patty Murray and House Republican Paul Ryan, sets the new annual budget caps for 2014 and 2015 at just over $1 trillion – slightly higher than current levels – and partially repeals the unpopular automatic budget cuts known as “sequestration”.Importantly, a budget bill under the agreed framework would free legislators to focus on how to reduce the main drivers of the country’s debt, such as entitlement programs including Medicare, without the specter of a budget showdown every six or 12 months.“I see this agreement as a step in the right direction,” Ryan, the 2012 Republican vice-presidential nominee and chairman of the House Budget Committee, told reporters, noting that the deal does not raise taxes on Americans.Murray, the Senate’s top budget chief, said she and negotiating partner Ryan set aside political differences and have “broken through the gridlock and reached a bipartisan budget compromise that will prevent a government shutdown in January”.Coming togetherPresident Barack Obama hailed the agreement as a sign of rare bipartisan cooperation in the strife-filled US legislature.“It’s a good sign that Democrats and Republicans in Congress were able to come together and break the cycle of short-sighted, crisis-driven decision-making to get this done,” he said.Under a deal reached in October that ended a crippling 16-day shutdown, federal spending authority expires on 15 January, when a new budget will need to be in force.Tuesday’s deal – the first by a divided Congress since 1986, according to Ryan – provides for $85 billion in mandatory savings while creating $63 billion in sequestration relief, leaving roughly $22 billion in deficit reduction.UnderwhelmingObama said he was pleased the deal worked toward replacing sequestration cuts that he said have “served as a mindless drag on our economy over the last year.”By most accounts the deal is an underwhelming one, far from the grand bargain envisioned by some optimists in Washington earlier this year.But it sets the warring Democratic and Republican parties on track for further cooperation on budget policy, ending the cycle of fiscal feuding that has scarred Washington since 2011.“We have lurched from crisis to crisis and from one cliff to the next. And when one countdown clock was stopped it wasn’t too long before the next one got started,” Murray said. That uncertainty was devastating to our fragile economic recovery.Similar to his Republican colleague, House Speaker John Boehner hailed the deal as a “positive step forward by replacing one-time spending cuts with permanent reforms to mandatory spending programs that will produce real, lasting savings”.The challenge now is selling the agreement to skeptical conservatives in the House of Representatives and Senate.Murray said she was “hopeful” the deal will pass muster in the Republican-led House this week before that chamber breaks for the year-end recess.Each chamber must pass a budget bill by 15 January or risk another government shutdown.The American Dream?Senator Marco Rubio was quick out of the gate in opposition to the deal, saying it merely furthers “Washington’s irresponsible budgeting decisions” by spending more than government brings in.“We need a government with less debt and an economy with more good-paying jobs, and this budget fails to accomplish both goals, making it harder for more Americans to achieve the American Dream,” Rubio said.A handful of conservative groups have already come out opposing the agreement, saying it blows past the budget caps established in the Budget Control Act of 2011.“Spending levels were set by law at $967 billion,” said Tim Phillips, president of Americans for Prosperity.“Exceeding those levels by $45 billion takes us in the wrong direction, further from fiscal responsibility.”Ryan acknowleged that the package was not ideal, but in a divided government in which Democrats control the White House and Senate, he was pleased with the result.“I deal with the way things are, not the way I necessarily want them to be,” he said.- © AFP, 2013Miley Cyrus, Pope Francis or Snowden?

Priyanka plans to revamp party in Uttar Pradesh with new blood

first_imgNew Delhi: Stunned by the rout in the Lok Sabha battle, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi is working on a plan to revamp the country’s oldest political party across Uttar Pradesh keeping in mind the 2022 Assembly elections. Party sources said that Gandhi, who is in charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh, has put a team in place after taking critical feedback from various constituencies. Also Read – National Herald case: Officer bearers of Congress were cheats, Subramanian Swamy tells court Advertise With Us The source said that after discussions with all district Congress committees in Uttar Pradesh, Gandhi has asked her team members, which includes Secretaries, to visit each district and spend a day or two there to get feedback from activists and voters. Four teams have been touring the state for the last one month to know what led to the washout of the Congress in Uttar Pradesh where it could win only one Lok Sabha seat. Also Read – Dehydrated elephant being given treatment Advertise With Us Even Congress President Rahul Gandhi was defeated by the BJP in a place that was supposed to be a Gandhi family stronghold. Earlier this month, four party Secretaries submitted their reports to her citing the weak organisation and “unpopular party leaders” as the reasons which led to the decimation of the Congress in a state where it once held sway. Advertise With Us Gandhi, who is said to be upset with both party leaders and workers in Uttar Pradesh, is expected to infuse young leaders in the party at every level, replacing many senior leaders. During her visit to Rae Bareli to thank voters along with her mother and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi came down heavily on party workers for not ensuring the victory of Congress candidates. She felt that the proximity of many activists with senior leaders had reduced the party to such a condition. Priyanka Gandhi also wants leaders of other parties who joined the Congress and have good public support base to be given prominence. On Monday, the Congress dissolved all its district committees in the state and set up a three-member disciplinary committee to look into charges of “gross indiscipline” during the Lok Sabha elections. A two-member team has also been sent to the state to oversee election preparations and management of all seats where Assembly by-elections will be taking place. The sources said Priyanka Gandhi will start visiting Uttar Pradesh twice a week from August to strengthen the party in the state where it has been out of power since 1989.last_img read more

Tourism WA restructure sees Perth consolidation

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: G.A All of Tourism Western Australia’s marketing and trade support will come out of the agency’s headquarters in Perth, effective 10 December 2010.The move comes as Tourism WA adopts a new business model which will see the freeing up of AUD31 million over the next four years.Tourism WA chief executive Stephanie Buckland assured that the repositioning is in no way a sign of the agency’s wavering dedication to domestic travel.“The only change is that we will be consolidating our marketing expertise in one location, that being Perth,” Ms Buckland said.“Tourism WA’s commitment to the domestic market remains strong, nothing has changed in that regard,” Ms Buckland said.“We are creating a more flexible organisation that is better positioned to respond to changing market conditions, and to optimise the expenditure of marketing funds.”The funds made available by the consolidation will allow Tourism WA to invest directly into promoting the new Experience Extraordinary brand on both a domestic and international level.“The restructure has seen Tourism WA refocus on three core functions; marketing the State and its extraordinary destinations and experiences; developing, attracting and promoting major events; and developing significant tourism infrastructure and projects,” Ms Buckland said.Ms Buckland also praised Tourism WA’s Sydney-based domestic marketing director Ross Gregory.“Ross has been a great representative for Tourism WA and we will miss his passion and enthusiasm for Western Australia,” Ms Buckland said.last_img read more

What does this election result mean for the travel industry

first_img learn more about stuba.com here Source = STUBA.com Good or bad? Does it matter for the travel industry? You bet. Start advertising!Let’s not pretend. That election results surprised everyone. Whether it’s Jason Westbury predicting the probable change of government, the exit polls and Channel 9 news stories that showed the Liberal party “simply could not win” or the betting agencies that paid out early…It’s a bit of a surprise. The results for the travel industry might be even more surprising.Elections are seldom a good thing for travel. The thought of a changing government and the “catastrophic” impact it will have on discretionary spending tightens the purse strings. 2019 wasn’t predicted to be a massive year in travel; softer economic indicators at home, Brexit, Trumpism and trade wars with China , lower housing prices… It was a bit more about tightening of belts, if that’s still a thing.The Labour Party were predicted to win. Their policies were largely going to “cost” those with more discretionary spending capabilities than others; the same people who were going to start feeling a bit unsure about dropping $10,000 or $20,000 on their next family trip.Unexpectedly, the hit to their hip pocket, which they have been buffering against for the past six months, didn’t materialise. With promises to fast forward tax cuts, the travel industry may well see a positive bump. The Liberal party victory, whether it’s good for the environment, good for jobs, good for your superannuation… Is going to give people the confidence to spend again. In the short term anyway.With financial futures markets predicting anything between modest and brilliant gains for the sharemarket ahead, off the back of negative sentiments about this election outcome, it could well be a sweeter end to the financial year the Australian travel industry.For travel agents?The chance to make hay while the sun shines on this message probably runs until the end of the financial year. Get your message out there, get them onto a boat for a plane and having the time of their life.www.stuba.comlast_img read more
