On International Day UN chief urges greater attention to precarious situation of

“We call for the fulfilment and protection of the human rights of the world’s 232 million migrants,” said Mr. Ban. On 4 December 2000, the UN General Assembly, taking into account the large and increasing number of migrants in the world, proclaimed 18 December as International Migrants Day. On 18 December 1990, the General Assembly had adopted the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families.In his message, the Secretary-General said that the post-2015 development agenda offers an opportunity to ensure that the needs of the poorest and most marginalized are made a priority. “To meet the new framework’s core objective of ‘leaving no one behind’, we must devote greater attention to the precarious situation of the world’s migrants.” He drew attention to the “precarious and unjust conditions” that many migrants face, noting that many risk their lives at sea while attempting to seek sanctuary only to be met by incarceration instead of empathy and necessary protection, persistent discrimination and abuse. Children of migrants were especially vulnerable.“I call on all States to ratify and implement all core international human rights instruments, including the International Convention…as well as relevant instruments of international labour law,” the Secretary-General said. “I also urge States to adopt comprehensive and human rights-based migration policies that promote legal migration channels.” Mr. Ban stressed the importance of accurate data to ensure migrants are included in States’ development strategies and enabled to contribute skills and experiences to the advancement of society. “Migration policies must be evidence-based, rather than rooted in xenophobia and misperceptions,” he said calling on Member States to reaffirm their commitment to shape diverse and open societies that provide opportunities and lives of dignity for all migrants. In a joint statement on the Day, International Labour Organization (ILO) Director-General, Guy Ryder, and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, lamented that migrants face a “sad reality” characterized by exploitation, discrimination and violence throughout the migration process. From abusive recruitment practices as they seek to go abroad in search of decent work, violence and detention at borders, exploitation, unequal treatment in the workplace, xenophobic violence to denial of access to essential services in countries of destination, migrants face myriad obstacles and unnecessary hardships. ”One of the reasons this continues, is that labour laws are often not applied in many sectors which typically employ migrant workers, such as agriculture, construction, or domestic work,” explain the officials, underscoring however that refusing to give migrants and their families access to education, health-care and adequate housing is both morally indefensible and practically short-sighted. Equality and non-discrimination are important drivers of sustainable development. Persistent and structural discrimination generates sharp inequalities which threaten the social fabric, they continue, declaring: “No society can develop its true potential when legal, social or political barriers prevent entire segments of the population, such as migrants, from contributing.”In his message on the Day, the Director General of the International Organization for Migration, William Lacy Swing said the rise of anti-migrant sentiment is a “cruel irony” at a time when ageing societies need migration to provide much-needed labour. “Migration is not only inevitable, but also necessary and desirable,” he said. “The international community must work together to change the actual migration narrative to something more positive, focusing on what migrants contribute to their host countries, as well as their countries of origin, which benefit hugely from the remittances they send home.” Mr. Swing also called for urgent action to save the lives of migrants and stop smugglers from exploiting their desperation to extort huge sums of money. IOM data shows that the number of migrants dying on dangerous journeys in the hope of finding better lives for themselves and their families is rising. Nearly 5,000 migrants lost their lives this year at sea or in remote deserts or mountains. This makes 2014 the deadliest year on record, with double the number of last year’s deaths. According to IOM, the highest death toll was in the Mediterranean, where over 3,000 people drowned after embarking on unseaworthy boats. Over 540 migrants also died in the Bay of Bengal and at least 307 died trying to cross the land border between Mexico and the United States. “We must address the drivers of desperation migration and act in concerted and coherent partnership,” said Mr. Swing. “This is a battle we must fight together. We need more political leadership and the courage to counter the worrying rise of xenophobia.” Listing three priorities to protect vulnerable migrants and reduce the number of deaths – saving lives; addressing the drivers of irregular migration; and partnering for effective action – he said: All States have the international obligation to save the lives of those seeking help.” As the leading inter-governmental agency in its field, IOM works in partnership with the United Nations on a broad range of migration-related issues. Various reports and resolutions discussed and adopted each year by the UN General Assembly show that migration concerns virtually all countries around the world. read more

Healing of ozone layer gives hope for climate action UN report

The study, “Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion: 2018”, is the latest in a series of reports, released every four years, which monitor the recovery of ozone in the stratosphere, a layer that protects life on Earth from harmful layers of ultraviolet rays from the sun.It shows that the concentration of ozone-depleting substances continues to decrease, leading to an improvement in the layer since the previous assessment carried out in 2014.Ozone in parts of the stratosphere has recovered at a rate of 1-3 percent since 2000 and, at projected rates, Northern Hemisphere and mid-latitude ozone is scheduled to heal completely by the 2030s, followed by the Southern Hemisphere in the 2050s and polar regions by 2060. This is due to internationally agreed actions carried out under the historic Montreal Protocol, which came into being over 30 years ago in response to the revelation that chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and other ozone-depleting substances – used in aerosols, cooling and refrigeration systems, and many other items – were tearing a hole in the ozone layer and allowing dangerous ultraviolet radiation to flood through.Next year, the Protocol is set to be strengthened with the ratification of the Kigali Amendment, which calls for the future use of powerful climate-warming gases in refrigerators, air conditioners and related products to be slashed.“The Montreal Protocol is one of the most successful multilateral agreements in history for a reason,” said Erik Solheim, head of UN Environment. “The careful mix of authoritative science and collaborative action that has defined the Protocol for more than 30 years and was set to heal our ozone layer is precisely why the Kigali Amendment holds such promise for climate action in future.”The findings provide a ray of hope, less than a month after the IPCC, or Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), released a watershed report which described the devastating effects of a 2°C temperature rise compared to pre-industrial levels, described by UN chief António Guterres as an “ear-splitting wake-up call.”The writers of the report found that, if the Kigali Amendment is fully implemented, the world can avoid up to 0.4 percent of global warming this century, meaning that it will play a major role in keeping the global temperature rise below 2°C. read more

Bump in the road to zero as low emission car demand reverses

UK new car market declines for fourth consecutive month, down -4.9% in June, as alternatively fuelled vehicle demand falls for first time in 26 months.Boost for battery electric cars but plug-in hybrid decline continues, falling -50.4%, as hybrids also take a hit.Half year market falls -3.4%, with 1.27 million new cars registered in first six months – in line with expectations.SEE CAR REGISTRATIONS BY BRANDDOWNLOAD THE PRESS RELEASE AND DATAUK new car registrations declined for a fourth consecutive month in June, with year-on-year demand falling by -4.9% to 223,421 units, according to the latest figures released today by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). 1,269,245 new cars joined British roads in the first half of the year, down -3.4% as ongoing confusion over low emission zones and diesel, the removal of key ultra low emission vehicle incentives and an overall decline in buyer confidence affected the market.Demand fell in all sectors, with private registrations seeing a decline of -4.8%, while larger fleet and business registrations also fell, down -2.5% and -37.1% respectively. Declines were also seen across every vehicle segment, except Dual Purpose which grew 9.1% in June and 7.3% year-to-date to take 22.6% of the market. However, Supermini remains the UK’s best-selling segment, making up 31.0% of all registrations in the first six months.The month saw growth for petrol and battery electric registrations, up 3.0% and 61.7% respectively, but this was not enough to offset the continuing decline of diesel, which fell for the 27th month in a row (-20.5%). Significantly, plug-in hybrids continued the recent downward trend, falling by a massive -50.4%, while hybrids also fell, by -4.7%.The performance tipped the overall alternatively fuelled vehicle (AFV) sector into negative growth for the first time since April 2017, undermining efforts to reduce emissions through fleet renewal of the latest ultra low emission vehicles. AFV registrations (BEV, PHEV, HEV) declined 11.8% to 13,314 units in June. This is despite ongoing investment, which has enabled manufacturers to offer British car buyers more choice than ever before with more than 350 models now available in the UK – 44 of them plug-ins.This technological innovation has led to a growing range of powertrain options, including advanced low emission petrols and diesels, and an ever-greater number of hybrid, plug-in hybrid, battery electric and hydrogen cars. Another option increasingly available is mild-hybrid technology, which provides an energy boost to traditional internal combustion engines, helping to improve fuel efficiency and lower CO2. To highlight these advances, SMMT’s monthly registrations data now includes a breakdown of the different technologies now being registered.1Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said,Another month of decline is worrying but the fact that sales of alternatively fuelled cars are going into reverse is a grave concern. Manufacturers have invested billions to bring these vehicles to market but their efforts are now being undermined by confusing policies and the premature removal of purchase incentives.If we are to see widespread uptake of these vehicles, which are an essential part of a smooth transition to zero emission transport, we need world-class, long-term incentives and substantial investment in infrastructure.Fleet renewal remains the quickest way to address environmental concerns today and consumers should have the confidence – and support – to choose the new car that best meets their driving needs, whatever the technology, secure in the knowledge that it is safer and cleaner than ever before. Notes to editors1. SMMT monthly new car registration releases previously showed data for petrol, diesel and alternatively fuelled vehicles. Mild hybrid vehicles were previously counted as traditional petrol or diesel.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

Womens lacrosse Ohio State has sights set on NCAA tournament redemption

OSU coach Alexis Venechanos running practice ahead of their Feb. 6 match-up with Vermont. Credit: James King IIWhile its season opener is not until Feb. 6, the Ohio State women’s lacrosse team already has its sights set on the Big Ten championship later this year.Senior defender Meredith Bushell and the rest of the Buckeyes are looking to overcome the disappointment of not advancing to the NCAA tournament last season.“We’re definitely using it to fuel our fire, we’re using it as a motivation,” said Bushell. “We were not happy with the results we had last year, so we’re looking to make it this year.”Prior to last season, OSU had made two consecutive NCAA tournaments and seemed to be in prime position to earn a third berth until they stumbled late in the season. This year, OSU coach Alexis Venechanos said she feels like the foundation that has been built in the previous years has their team trending up.“Our goal is to have that mission: to be playing in Maryland in May” Venechanos said. “Our last game right now is in April so, if we’re playing in May, it will be for the Big Ten championship and NCAA championship.”While the Buckeyes launched themselves to an 11-1 start in 2016, they dropped their last five games of the year, including an overtime loss to Rutgers in the Big Ten tournament, ultimately finishing at 11-6.“Knowing that (the Big Ten conference) is one of the tougher ones, it kind of excites us. It kind of adds something,” senior midfielder Paulina Constant said. “We’re definitely still excited. We are planning for every single one of those games down from Michigan all the way up to Penn State, Maryland and all of those games. We’re not taking any of them lightly and we’re excited to play each team, get to the Big Ten [tournament] and hopefully win.”OSU will need to find new sources of production on both ends of the field after graduating their two leading point-getters, Cian Dabrowski and Rainey Hodgson, along with their starting goalie Katie Frederick.“We have new faces on both ends of the goal, literally, and our goalie competition is fierce, it’s competitive,” Venechanos said. “I think this year we’re going to have a lot more balance, we have a lot of different types of looks. We have tall girls, we have short girls, we have lefties, we have righties, we have dodgers, we have feeders, so I think we’ll be more dynamic because of that.”The team is not shying away from the challenges that this season is going to bring them. Instead they are embracing it. Constant said she believes they will be successful by taking what worked well from last season and seeing how it will work for them this year.“Of course we had a lot of our attack graduate. But just encouraging everyone to step up, I think that’s a big thing for us,” Constant said. “Just making sure that everyone has the confidence. We have the skill, we just need the confidence to be able to do it.”While their first game against Vermont is Monday at 7 p.m. in the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, the Buckeyes are hoping their last is in the NCAA championship game.“Our goal is definitely long term, but it’s on our mind daily: what are you going to do to get us to be playing in the NCAA tournament?” Venechanos said. read more

Listeria outbreak Three patients die after eating prepacked sandwiches in English hospitals

The Good Food Chain's website Three patients have been killed by hospital sandwiches and 43 NHS trusts placed on alert after a deadly bacterial outbreak.In one of the worst cases of food poisoning ever seen in the health service, six people were diagnosed with a serious listeria infection between April 25 and May 15 and three have since died at Manchester Royal Infirmary and Aintree Hospital in Liverpool.Public Health England (PHE) and the NHS were under pressure last night to explain why it had taken so long to warn the public after they confirmed the deaths were linked in May.All those who died had been given sandwiches supplied by The Good Food Chain, a company based in Stone, Staffordshire, whose Whole Lotta Good brand was developed specifically for hospitals “to meet patients’ needs” and “deliver more for less”.The company, which also supplies some schools, has voluntarily ceased production while an investigation continues, as has the firm which supplied its meat, Northern Country Cooked Meats, which operates out of Salford. The Good Food Chain’s websiteCredit:The Good Food Chain  A spokesman for North Country Cooked Meats said: “At this stage, the company is currently co-operating fully with the environmental health and the FSA in their investigations, and a further statement will be issued in due course.”Although listeria infection is rare, only causing mild illness in healthy people, it can survive at refrigeration temperatures which means it can persist in food-processing equipment and in the food chain.All those who have died and became ill had serious underlying health conditions and some are believed to be pensioners. The Good Food Chain has also supplied several Premier League football teams, motor and horse racing events, universities and colleges.It boasts that customers have “peace of mind” that all of its products are “lovingly hand prepared in a safe environment, as you would in your own kitchen”.Martyn Corfield, 50, founded the company in 1996 after a career in IT. According to Companies House, The Good Food Chain Limited is ultimately controlled by Mr Corfield.He is listed as a shareholder along with Atalanta Motor Cars Ltd, a classic car company which he also runs. In its mission statement, North Country Quality Foods says that it “is dedicated to producing and supplying the highest quality products, precisely to our customers needs”. The death of a third patient, who 
became ill on May 15, was also found to be caused by the same strain and by May 24 staff had raised suspicions that the sandwiches could be to blame.An immediate investigation was launched by PHE and The Food Standards Agency (FSA) and sandwiches and salads withdrawn from sale the following day.By June 2, preliminary tests suggested that the strain had originated from food supplied by The Good Food Chain. The results were confirmed on June 5. But the public was not informed until last night. Forty-three of the 135 NHS trusts have been placed on alert for cases of listeriosis, which can lead to deadly sepsis and meningitis. In pregnant women it can also cause miscarriage and be passed on to the unborn child.Dr Kimon Andreas Karatzas, associate professor in food microbiology, at the University of Reading, said: “Listeria monocytogenes is the most deadly food-borne bacteria. Due to a relatively long incubation period it’s possible that there could potentially be some more cases.”The first victim fell ill
 on April 25 and a second at the beginning of May. When both patients died, DNA testing was carried out which confirmed the same strain of bacteria had killed both. “To date, there have been no associated cases identified outside healthcare organisations, and any risk to the public is low.”The three patients who did not die are from trusts in England that have not been named. There are no cases in Scotland or Wales.Dr Colin Sullivan, chief operating 
officer at the Food Standards Agency, which is helping with the investigation, said: “We have taken action along with local authorities to minimise the risk based on the evidence so far.“The FSA will continue to investigate how the outbreak occurred and if further steps are required to protect vulnerable groups.” Show more Dr Nick Phin, deputy director at the national infection service at PHE, said: “Our thoughts are with the families of those patients who have died. However, there are fears that more people may be infected because of the long incubation period of listeria. The bacteria can lie dormant for up to 70 days and sandwiches were not withdrawn from the NHS until May 25 after investigators realised they had been eaten by all three of the victims.

Prosecutors delay serving warrant on arson suspect

first_imgProsecutors are in no rush to have police execute an arrest warrant that would result in an Oregon Burn Center patient’s first appearance in court. A warrant for the arrest of David Michael Miller, 23, will be carried out, but not yet, said Sgt. Scott Schanaker, a spokesman for the Clark County Sheriff’s Office. The Vancouver man is wanted on two counts of first-degree attempted murder and one count of first-degree arson for allegedly dousing his girlfriend with gasoline at a home in Sifton and then setting the house on fire.It’s not just the cost of caring for Miller, but also the care itself in which authorities are deferring.A Legacy Health spokeswoman said Monday that Miller is in serious condition. He was admitted on Sept. 17, having suffered burns to his hands, arms and legs when he remained inside the home his then-girlfriend, Jessica Whalen, shared with the couple’s 5-year-old son, Damien, her sister, Jeanette Whalen, and mother, Karen Whalen, after he allegedly set it ablaze.Jessica Whalen escaped with her family before the home at 12315 N.E. 83rd St. was engulfed.Jessica Whalen told police that Miller had sent a text message to her that said he was going to “come over, light my place on fire and watch me burn,” according to a probable cause affidavit.last_img read more

Count Confirms Trend Of Decline In Homelessness In Greater Houston

first_imgListen Drive through downtown Houston – for example, under the Pierce elevated – and you’re likely to see your fair share of people camped out on the street.But the number of homeless people in Greater Houston is on a steady decline. The Houston Coalition for the Homeless led the count on a given night in January. It includes Houston, Pasadena, Harris County and Fort Bend County.“There were 3,626 total individuals, either in shelter or unsheltered, on that evening,” Marilyn Brown, president and CEO of the nonprofit, said.That’s a 21 percent reduction since last year and a 57 percent decrease since 2011.This year, they didn’t just take a visual count of people that seemed homeless but conducted interviews to verify their status and determine needs.Brown said 20 percent of those who at first glance looked homeless turned out not to be.“Next year, doing the same methodology, will be a stronger trend,” she said. “But we really feel like we were perhaps even over-counting when we were doing it just observationally.”She attributes the continuous decline to the collaboration of many different agencies that started with the Continuum of Care program by HUD, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. It’s known as The Way Home here.One of those agencies is the city of Houston. Marc Eichenbaum, special assistant to the mayor for homeless initiatives, said the city is really committed to reducing homelessness.“The city’s housing and community development department really works hard on developing the housing for the homeless,” he said. “They also provide funds for supportive service.”Eichenbaum said the health, park and police departments also play a big role.The count may have come back with just over 3,600 homeless people in one night, but Brown said the number of those who took advantage of homeless services last year is about 42,000.Brown considers them as being on the edge of homelessness and proof that her work is far from being done. 00:00 /01:45 X Share To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:last_img read more
