Cathedral added temple complex dropped from UNs endangered list

Speaking of the visual danger to the cathedral from the new high-rise construction, the Director of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) World Heritage Centre, Francesco Bandarin, said, “The Cologne Cathedral and its urban landscape are the city’s only outstanding cultural heritage elements to have survived World War II. I sincerely hope that Cologne will not lose an important component of its historical legacy.”UNESCO’s 21-member World Heritage Committee, holding its 28th annual session in Suzhou, China, until tomorrow, said the 13th to 16th century Tanzanian ruins of Kilwa Kisiwani and Songo Mnara show their historical position as hubs of trade in gold, silver, pearls, perfumes, Arabian crockery, Persian earthenware and Chinese porcelain.Portugal offered Tanzania assistance in preserving the two seaports.Meanwhile, the committee removed three other sites from the danger list yesterday.The three were the Angkor Wat temple complex in Cambodia, the immense earthen Bahla Fort in Oman and the Rwenzori Mountains National Park, home to rich and usual plant life and endangered animals, in Uganda.By putting a site on the danger list, the committee calls the attention of a government and its international partners to the risks and dangers the area faces, whereas de-listing signals that the management of and security at the location has reached acceptable international standards.Last Friday the Committee also inscribed 13 sites on the list of places whose heritage belongs to all of mankind, bringing the total to 788.They included the mud-layered buildings in the 6th to 4th century BC Iranian city of Bam, which also made it simultaneously to the list of sites in danger. The December earthquake, which took 26,000 lives, extensively damaged the mud structures in the old city. The quake, however, also allowed experts to see even earlier, previously undiscovered settlements in the area.Also inscribed on the World Heritage List were three sites in Germany, two in Italy and one each in Iceland, Lithuania, Mexico, Portugal, Serbia and Montenegro, Sweden and the United Kingdom. read more

Number of South Sudanese sheltering at UN bases to remain high in

.Derk Segaar, Head of the Mission’s Recovery, Reintegration and Peacebuilding Section, told a news conference in the capital, Juba, that there are currently about 100,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) seeking protection in 10 UN bases around the country.The Mission took the unprecedented decision to open its gates to all unarmed civilians facing an imminent threat of physical violence when the crisis in South Sudan erupted last December. Despite a cessation of hostilities signed by the parties, peace and stability have yet to be restored to the extent that the IDPs feel safe enough to return to their homes. “In view of uncertainties surrounding the cessation of hostilities and the projected deterioration of the food security situation in conflict-affected states, the numbers of IDPs in UNMISS bases are expected to remain high over the coming months,” said Mr. Segaar.He noted that UNMISS did not expect the current scenario and its military bases were not prepared to house so many IDPs for such a prolonged time. “As a result, many IDPs are living in very congested conditions, creating serious sanitary and health concerns that are further exacerbated by the rainy season,” he said, adding that despite ongoing improvements, flooding now occurs regularly in all protection sites. The Mission voiced particular concern about the situation in Bentiu, where 100 to 200 displaced people continue to arrive daily, many of whom are malnourished. Humanitarian partners are working together with UNMISS to improve the situation, wherever possible, both by improving the situation in existing sites and by creating new sites that will decongest the current, improvised protection sites. For example, two-thirds of the displaced – almost 12,000 people – at the UN base in Malakal have already moved into a new site. In Juba, relocations have begun to a new site that is ready to welcome up to 13,300 people. “Of course, these are only temporary solutions to avoid a health crisis during the rainy season,” Mr. Segaar stated. “In the longer term, we hope a political solution and the stabilization of the security situation will create the conditions in which the IDPs will feel safe to go home.” read more

Celebrating 50 years of bringing intercultural learning to Ireland

first_imgIf you grow up having friends from other cultures, friends who speak different languages or are a different colour, it becomes normal, for the rest of our life, and you normalise that for everyone around you.There are 14 staff members working at the Cork offices. EIL is a not-for-profit organisation. Information on its special travel awards can be found here.The awards are for people who may not have the money to travel, but want to take part in such a programme.EIL offers study abroad, volunteering, language training, travel scholarships and cultural immersion activities, with over 2,000 people participating in its programmes each year.The Minister for Trade and Development, Joe Costello TD, will officiate at today’s launch.Read: Political integration scheme connects migrants to Leinster House>Read: Racial profiling has ‘a discriminatory effect’ and should be prohibited – report> THE EIL INTERCULTURAL Learning Centre has seen Ireland change hugely in the 50 years it has been in operation.Its director Kevin Hickey told “The difference between now and 1964 when the organisation was first founded is absolutely dramatic. At that stage [Ireland] was a very mono-cultural, very white, very Catholic society. It was also a very inward-looking society.”Today, EIL Intercultural Learning is Ireland’s oldest intercultural learning organisation and this morning it launches a year-long programme of events to mark its 50th anniversary.EIL Intercultural Learning is a non-profit organisation and a member of the worldwide Experiment in International Living (EIL) network.The first group to arrive in 1964 was from the USA, and the participants lived with local families for their stay. Author Maeve Binchy was one of the people involved in the organisation for the first couple of years.Since then, they have had about 36,000 people involved in programmes coming to and from Ireland, including exchanges, volunteering, school exchanges and other opportunities.The age range is a wide one – from students to retired people. EIL has a big travel award programme that offers fully-funded opportunities for Irish people to volunteer as part of exchange programmes.This year is the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s Nobel Peace Prize, so EIL is looking to provide opportunities for young people showing leadership around issues that focus on civil rights and minority rights.“The functioning of society in Ireland at the moment is very dependent on people having strong intercultural skills,” said Hickey.He said that some people who have taken part in EIL programmes have even changed careers and fields of study due to their experiences.“It’s a very, very powerful experience that really sticks with people for life,” said Hickey. “You can’t unlearn it.”last_img read more

Jamaica on path to Economic Independence

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppUnited States, August 16, 2017 – Washington – Jamaica’s Ambassador to the United States, Her Excellency Audrey Marks, says Jamaica is firmly on the path to attaining the true national mission of this generation, that of achieving and establishing economic independence.Delivering the keynote address at the Atlanta Jamaican Association Independence Ball on Saturday night (August 12) at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Atlanta, Ambassador Marks said the country’s first focus after Independence was to build “exemplary social and political institutions for our young nation”.“We have, by any measure, achieved our political objectives as a stable and democratic country,” she said, noting that Jamaica is considered to be among the most democratic nations in the Western Hemisphere.Ambassador Marks said the island has also stamped its mark on the world in the cultural realm, particularly in the areas of music and sports.“Rastafari is considered as the only new religion of the 20th and 21st centuries. We produced reggae music as an authentic musical form that has influenced the world dramatically,” she pointed out.She noted that in the area of sports, “we have excelled beyond the wildest expectations, producing world-beaters and legends, particularly in athletics, cricket, boxing, netball and swimming. Music and sports are areas we once considered major recreational pastimes only, but, today, are respected as two of the world’s emerging cultural industries, generating billions of dollars in revenue”.Ambassador Marks told the nearly 800 attendees that the task now is to prepare the nation for long-term economic growth.“We have to cultivate and maximise these cultural and other industries to the economic benefit of Jamaica in much the same way as countries with natural resources such as oil, gas, or gold,” she pointed out.“My message tonight is about building on the foundation of political, organisational and cultural maturity to achieve economic independence,” she said, noting that the “entire Jamaican nation at home and aboard must be mobilised and inspired to action”.Ambassador Marks said the positive economic indicators now being experienced, together with the fiscal prudence and skilful management by the Government, “will no doubt help fuel and propel the economy towards the goal of economic independence”.last_img read more

Terrorism trade on PM Modis agenda for G20 Summit Key points

first_imgPrime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Japan for the global summit of world leaders, the G-20 Summit.TwitterPrime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Japan on Thursday, June 27, for the summit of the leaders of the G-20. The summit, which is being held at Osaka on June 28-29, will be PM Modi’s sixth G20 summit.PM Modi will meet several world leaders, including US President Donald Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping, French president Emmanuel Macron, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe.Taking to Twitter, the Ministry of External Affairs stated that PM Modi will hold bilateral and multilateral meetings with several leaders today morning. The prime minister will be staying in Osaka for three days.Ahead of departure, the prime minister issued a statement, setting the agenda for the global summit. PM Modi hopes to engage with the participating countries on a varied range of issues starting from women empowerment to terrorism and artificial intelligence. PM Modi also said: “The summit will provide an important opportunity to reiterate and reinforce our strong support to reformed multilateralism, which is crucial for preserving rule-based international order in today’s fast-changing world.”Key points: PM Modi’s agenda for G20 Summit1. Terrorism: While several countries have repeatedly condemned India’s nuclear-armed neighbour Pakistan for not acting against terrorism breeding on its soil, the topic will again be back in focus on Thursday and PM Modi is likely to bring up how Pakistan has failed to comply with the norms on terror financing. The global terror watchdog has already grey listed Pakistan for failing to control terror activities.2. Trade: Even though the Trump administration wants India to lower trade barriers and embrace fair and reciprocal trade, keeping trade free of protectionism ranks is one of Modi’s highest objectives. India has always been vocal about issues such as global trade growth and rising barriers to the free flow of goods.3. Women empowerment: The issue of women empowerment will be high on PM Modi’s agenda. The effective involvement of women in our society and economy is the touchstone of a developed fraternity. The Modi-led BJP government at the Centre has already stated that efforts are being made to provide better employment opportunities to women.The theme of the G20 summit 2019 is human-centred future society. Issues starting from food security, energy security, financial stability, terrorism-related issues, innovation in the digital economy and artificial intelligence will be discussed in the summit. Over 20 countries will be participating in this year’s G20 Summit.The prime minister’s office (PMO) tweeted: “Early morning arrival in Osaka. The #G20 Summit, bilateral and multilateral interactions await PM @narendramodi in the coming two days. He will elaborate on many issues of global importance and present India’s viewpoint.” Also, MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar posted on Twitter saying, “PM @narendramodi arrives at Kansai International airport in #Osaka to attend the #G20summit. Over the next 3 days, PM has a range of bilateral and plurilateral engagements to articulate India’s views on the global platform.”last_img read more

Efforts on to make Buxa Tiger Reserve a plasticfree zone

first_imgKolkata: The state Forest department is striving to make Buxa Tiger Reserve (BTR) in Alipurduar district of North Bengal a plastic-free zone. The tourists visiting the BTR are being offered paper bags free of cost and in case they are carrying plastic, the things in it are being put inside those paper bags.”We are taking all possible measures to make BTR plastic free. It is a massive challenge for us as the area in and around the reserve is a populated one. A number of slums are also located inside the forest area itself. We have started offering paper bags to tourists at the ticket counter of BTR,” state Forest minister Binay Krishna Barman said. The state Forest department will be soon introducing a dozen of Royal Bengal Tigers in BTR in a bid to augment tiger population there. The tigers will be brought from the forest reserves in Assam, which have a similar flora and fauna as the Buxa forest. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeThe state has already written to the Assam government for procuring a dozen tigers. It has been learnt that Buxa is one of the three forests in India where the National Tiger Conservation Authority has approved the tiger augmentation programme. It is located close to Assam’s Manas Tiger Reserve and some experts believe that animals from Manas often come to Buxa using Bhutan as a corridor. The BTR is home to smaller cats such as leopards which occasionally surface in the tea gardens nearby. There are also common clouded leopards, jungle cats and fishing cats. The herbivore list includes elephants, Indian gaur, chital, sambars, barking deer and hog deer. The tiger reserve has an area of about 757.9 sq km, of which 390 sq km lies in the core area and 367 sq km in the buffer zone. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedThe Forest department has decided to bring sambar and bison to the Buxa Tiger Reserve from other wildlife sanctuaries to boost the food chain ahead of the introduction of big cats in the BTR. “A number of heribivore needs to be present in Buxa for the food of the tigers. So, 250 spotted deer have already been moved to Buxa. We have decided to bring in at least 50 sambars and a good number of bisons from Jaldapara National Park to the BTR,” a senior Forest department official said. The number of tigers in Buxa has been often debated by wildlife enthusiasts. While Forest Department officials claimed there were tigers in the reserve, almost no sighting of the big cats raised questions about their presence. The survey of tigers in 2011 based on DNA analyses put the number of tigers at 20.last_img read more

Flying ants take over London in a day of reckoning

first_img Share It is definitely #flyingantday— Luce Eleanor (@LuceEleanor) July 4, 2018 Flying ants take over London in a day of reckoning Thursday, July 5, 2018 Travelweek Group LONDON — London, England was swarmed by millions of flying insects yesterday in a scene straight of the Apocalypse.‘Flying Ant Day’, which takes place every year, is a day when queen ants first fly out from their nests in search of male ants to mate with and begin new colonies. There is no set day when the annual mating ritual starts, but the entire buzz-worthy ordeal can last a few weeks to the dismay of Londoners.Yesterday, July 4, appears to have been Day 1 of the ritual and it caused havoc across the city. At Wimbledon, players were seen swatting flying ants with their rackets, including Caroline Wozniacki who asked the umpire to contact tournament officials to see what could be done about the incessant buggers.“You want to focus on playing tennis and not eating bugs,” she told the umpire.Meanwhile, Twitterverse erupted with videos of ant colonies across the city:One minute, nothing. The next, LOADS OF THE BUGGERS! #flyingantday— Karen Naiker (@karennaiker) July 4, 2018center_img Walked into a mist on the way home. It’s the stuff of nightmares. #FlyingAntDay— Thomas (@tsedge) July 4, 2018That would bug out just about anyone! So if you’re heading to London in the next few weeks, it’s probably best to pack a mosquito net and keep your mouth closed the entire time.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Wilson spent the last 12 years with the Cardinals but was released Friday, as the team elected to part with the 33-year-old five-time Pro Bowl selection. The move does not necessarily come as a surprise, as Wilson has clearly declined, but that does not mean the move is any less difficult to come to grips with.“He had a great impact on changing the dynamics of what they wanted to do as far as an organization,” Lassiter said. “And you can build around a guy like Adrian Wilson.”Speaking from experience, Lassiter said it’s easier for players to succeed when they join a team led by a professional like Wilson. So in a way, the Cardinals being able to move on from Wilson is somewhat because they had Wilson in the first place.“Guys coming into the league, it’s a great benefit when you can come to a veteran team that you can learn from and learn how to play the game,” he said. “I think (Darnell) Dockett and Calais (Campbell) and all those guys learned from Adrian.“They understood this guy’s passion that he wanted to go out there and win and wanted to change the face of the organization.” Kwamie Lassiter was an Arizona Cardinal when Adrian Wilson was drafted by the team in 2001. Also a safety, Lassiter was a teammate of Wilson’s for two seasons before leaving as a free agent. Yet, while he was only around for the beginning of Wilson’s Cardinals career, Lassiter very much understands the impact his former teammate made.“He’s turned into a vocal leader, he’s turned into a leader that shows ‘just watch me,’” Lassiter told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo Friday. “But that guy was always Cardinals first. It wasn’t about Adrian Wilson first.” Your browser does not support the audio element. 0 Comments   Share   LISTEN: Kwamie Lassiter , Former Cardinal, UFL DB Coach center_img Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

After three weeks only three NFL teams remain und

first_img After three weeks, only three NFL teams remain undefeated: the Cincinnati Bengals, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Arizona Cardinals.Steve Keim is particularly excited about that third team.The Cardinals general manager told Doug and Wolf Monday on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, “If you’d told me the third game of the year against San Francisco we would be playing with Drew Stanton and missing a significant amount of players on our team, and all 23 points in our win were scored by rookies, I would’ve probably called that one out. “But it’s nice to have a win and it’s certainly good to see some of the young guys step up and play well.”Keim was impressed by the team’s offensive line in Sunday’s comeback win against the San Francisco 49ers.“We were able to do a nice job in protection,” Keim said. “The only times that they created pressure was when they brought heat, and Drew (Stanton) did a nice job finding the open receiver.”He singled out the play of offensive tackles Jared Veldheer – whom he called “exceptional” in Sunday’s game – and Bobby Massie. “Excellent,” Keim said when asked about Massie’s performance. “He did a great job versus #55, Ahmed Brooks, and I’m really, really impressed with the way Bobby’s continued to play.“Not only with his pass protection, but creating some movement in the run game, his combination blocks to the second level, playing with great balance and strength on his feet.“So Bobby’s done a really job for us, which we really needed him to step up and it looks like he’s taken some ownership in that position.” Your browser does not support the audio element.
