DR Congo UN steps up emergency aid for children affected by new

18 September 2008The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is scaling up existing emergency programmes in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where increased fighting has forced over 100,000 people to flee their homes, social services to close, and humanitarian organizations to suspend aid. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is scaling up existing emergency programmes in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where increased fighting has forced over 100,000 people to flee their homes, social services to close, and humanitarian organizations to suspend aid.“This fighting is again having a brutal impact on the children and women of the Kivus,” UNICEF’s eastern DRC Chief of Field Operations Julien Harneis said of the two provinces affected by the new hostilities that erupted two and a half weeks ago between the army and rebels loyal to the former general Laurent Nkunda.“Many children are split up from their families as they flee; in displacement they are even more vulnerable to malaria, measles, cholera, and malnutrition. Over the last year we were able to bring down rates of malnutrition below emergency levels but this renewed fighting puts that all into question.”Some 1,000 children have been separated from their families with many being exploited and abused. Water springs have been sabotaged cutting off clean water to thousands of civilians and communicable diseases such as cholera and measles are at risk of spreading. Malnourishment is again in danger of rising past emergency levels, access to school is being reduced and the farming season is stunted, reducing children’s survival and healthy development prospects. With its non-governmental organization (NGO) partner Save the Children, UNICEF has identified some 500 separated children and launched family tracings to reunify them. Mercy Corps is trucking clean water to over 60,000 people on the Goma-Rutshuru road and Oxfam Quebec is reinstalling chlorination points in Kirotshe to meet the needs of 35,000 people.Emergency measles vaccinations for up to 100,000 children are being prepared with the Government and assessments in nutrition, essential household items and emergency shelter, and education sectors are being coordinated to ensure all new needs are met. Children continue to be abused, exploited, and to die from easily preventable diseases from the ongoing instability in North Kivu, UNICEF reported, calling on all armed groups to respect children’s rights and ensure that they have access to the protection of their family, their community, clean water, health care, and education. Hostilities have continued in eastern DRC despite stabilization in much of the rest of the vast country, which was torn by years of civil war. read more

Austria to replace Brazil at Womens Youth WCh 2018 in Kielce

The IHF have received official notice from the Brazilian Handball Federation that the Brazil team will be unable to participate in the 2018 IHF Women’s Youth (U18) World Championship. Upon receiving the notice, in accordance with Article 2.8. of the Regulations for IHF Competitions for Youth and Junior Events, the IHF approached two other nations that competed at the 2018 Pan American Women’s Youth Handball Championship as potential replacements.Unfortunately, no other Pan American team is able to travel to Kielce, Poland for the Youth World Championship. Therefore, the place was reallocated to Europe as the continent of the previous world champion in this age category (Russia). As the next best-ranked team at the Women’s 17 EHF EURO 2017, Austria were approached by the IHF and accepted the invitation to participate at Poland 2018.Austria therefore join the list of participants at the Youth World Championship alongside 23 other nations, including 14 from Europe. The 2018 Women’s Youth World Championship will be played from August 7 to 19 in Kielce, Poland.Source: IHF ← Previous Story RK Vardar with four newcomers in season 2018/2019 Next Story → VIDEO: Gonzales’ era begins in Paris read more

Philips se sépare de sa branche téléviseurs

first_imgPhilips se sépare de sa branche téléviseursEn raison de la rude concurrence de ses rivaux asiatiques, le fabricant néerlandais a annoncé qu’il allait se séparer de sa branche téléviseurs.Il était le dernier grand groupe européen à fabriquer des téléviseurs. Aujourd’hui, le géant néerlandais Philips a annoncé qu’il allait se séparer de sa branche téléviseurs. Ses rivaux, les fabricants asiatiques, auraient “complètement détruit le marché” en bradant leurs appareils, a estimé Sjoerd Ummels, analyste chez le bancassureur ING, interrogé par l’AFP. Les plus grands concurrents de Philips sur ce marché sont le Japonais Sony et les Sud-Coréens Samsung et LG. Face à eux, le Néerlandais aurait perdu “d’importantes parts de marché : de plus de 10%, il est passé à 5-6%”, selon l’analyste.En 2005, la vente des téléviseurs Philips représentait 25% du chiffre d’affaires total du groupe. En 2010, il en représente seulement 13%.À lire aussiPays-Bas : une télé-réalité martienne en prévisionFondé en 1891, le géant néerlandais a produit ses premiers téléviseurs en noir et blanc en 1950. Les téléviseurs couleur ont ensuite attendu 12 ans pour être commercialisés.A partir de la fin de l’année, la branche téléviseurs de Philips deviendra une coentreprise. Ce dernier ne conservera que 30% des parts. Les 70% restants doivent être vendus à TPV Technology, basé à Hong-Kong.Les prochains appareils produits doivent arborer la marque Philips pendant au moins cinq ans en échange du versement de royalties, indique l’AFP. L’agence de presse précise que la coentreprise ne pourra toutefois pas vendre de téléviseurs en Chine, en Inde, en Amérique du Nord et dans certains pays d’Amérique du Sud, où Philips avait déjà conclu des accords permettant à d’autres fabricants de téléviseurs d’utiliser sa marque.Le 18 avril 2011 à 16:20 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Une expédition part à la découverte du continent de plastique un désastre

first_imgUne expédition part à la découverte du “continent de plastique”, un désastre écologiqueUne nouvelle expédition va partir à l’abordage du “7e continent”, une gigantesque plaque de déchets plastiques flottant sur l’océan Pacifique. Patrick Deixonne, qui avait découvert ce phénomène en 2009, souhaite médiatiser cette “catastrophe écologique” en se rendant sur place pour en rapporter observations scientifiques et images.C’est en 2009 que l’explorateur guyanais Patrick Deixonne a découvert, lors de sa participation à la course en solitaire à l’aviron Rames-Guyane, ce qu’on a coutume d’appeler le “7e continent”. Il s’agit d’une gigantesque plaque de déchets plastiques de 3,4 millions de kilomètres carrés, sur l’océan Pacifique, grande comme six fois la France. “Je voyais tous ces déchets plastiques qui dérivaient autour de moi. Ca m’étonnait et je me suis demandé : ‘mais ça va où tout ça ?'”, explique-t-il à l’AFP.Revenu à terre, l’ancien sapeur-pompier se documente et découvre ainsi que ces déchets plastiques se rejoignent là où les courants marins s’enroulent sous l’effet de la rotation de la Terre et forment un gigantesque vortex : “gyre”. Ainsi, ce sont au total des millions de tonnes de détritus venus des côtes et des fleuves qui flottent dans les cinq principaux gyres de la planète, le plus grand restant celui du Pacifique nord, entre la Californie et Hawaï. L’essentiel de ces plastiques est constitué de microdéchets qui restent en suspension sous la surface de l’eau, parfois sur 30 mètres de profondeur. Ils sont par conséquent très difficiles à détecter par satellite. Ce n’est qu’à bord de bateaux que cette “soupe” est visible. Malheureusement, la plaque de déchets qui y flotte est “située dans des eaux peu concernées par la navigation marchande et le tourisme, le problème n’intéresse que les écologistes et les scientifiques”, assure Patrick Deixonne.Des observations scientifiques et des images du 7e continentÀ lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?C’est donc pour faire prendre conscience de ce désastre écologique encore trop méconnu que débute la mission “7e continent”, parrainée par le CNES, l’agence spatiale française. En effet, depuis sa découverte fortuite en 1997 par l’océanographe américain Charles Moore, cette nappe de débris plastiques n’a fait l’objet que de quelques études visant à étudier l’impact de la pollution sur les océans et leur faune, souligne l’AFP.Cette fois, pour toucher le grand public, Patrick Deixonne souhaite se rendre sur place et rapporter des observations scientifiques et des images de ce “7e continent”. L’expédition doit partir le 20 mai d’Oceanside, dans le sud de la Californie et mettre le cap sur le gyre “en effectuant tout le long du parcours des mesures pour comparer la concentration et la nature des déchets”, explique M. Deixonne. Guidés par satellite, le puissant bateau à moteur et les trois membres d’équipage que le Yacht Club d’Oceanside a gracieusement mis à disposition de Patrick Deixonne devrait rejoindre la zone ayant la plus forte concentration de déchets en un peu moins d’une semaine.Au final, la mission souhaite pouvoir cartographier les zones polluées grâce à l’imagerie satellite, ce qui serait une première mondiale et permettrait de mieux mesurer l’ampleur du phénomène.  Le 29 avril 2013 à 11:07 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Epic Astros Win Is Just The Beginning Of A Crazy Week In

Listen The Astros can clinch the franchise’s first World Series title with a win in Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday (Oct. 31) in Los Angeles. Justin Verlander will be on the mound for Houston, and Rich Hill will get the start for the Dodgers.Needless to say, Sunday night’s Game 5 victory for the Astros was a game for the ages. The dramatic, back-and-forth slug fest lasted more than five hours, featured numerous comebacks, lead changes, bullpen collapses, a ton of homers, and a walk-off hit by third baseman Alex Bregman to give the Astros a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.As we all come down from last night’s – or should we say, this morning’s – dramatic victory, we discuss the game and this intense World Series with Jeff Balke, who writes for Houston Press and Houstonia Magazine.And, believe it or not, there are plenty of other stories in Houston sports this week, including the Texans’ players kneeling during the national anthem in Seattle to protest recent comments from owner Bob McNair and the Dynamo hosting the Portland Timbers in the second round of the MLS Playoffs. 00:00 /04:22 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: X Photo: Michael Ciaglo/Houston ChronicleHouston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa (1) and third baseman Alex Bregman (2) react as catcher Brian McCann (16) hits a home run during the eighth inning.

Microsoft Creates Electronic PostIt Notes

first_img Even though I spend all day sat in front of a PC tapping away on a keyboard, I still have a pen and paper pad on my desk for quick notes. Post-It notes remain popular because they can easily be stuck somewhere to ensure you notice them, there’s also no real alternative to replace them yet. However, Microsoft may be about to.A team at Microsoft Research has created a new so-called situated display (PDF). It’s basically a small screen about the size of a Post-It note, which can easily be moved around and stuck on to surfaces. The display tech it uses is ePaper, with power coming from integrated solar cells. Importantly, the solar cells can generate energy from indoor lighting not just daylight. The end result is an electronic note that never needs plugging in and charging.These electronic sticker displays are updated from a smart device such as a smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth. Where it gets interesting is the types of information that can be displayed. A standard sheet of paper can hold a static piece of information, these displays can be told to display the weather, for example, and to update at regular intervals. You could do the same with sports results, stock prices, use it as a countdown timer, or take advantage of the output for augmented reality purposes.AdChoices广告The resolution of the display is low, but then you don’t need it to be any higher at this screen size and type of information display. Whether it makes it beyond the prototype stage is up to Microsoft, though. A lot will depend on how much it costs to produce them and whether a company such as Post-It note maker 3M shows any interest in mass production.If you could buy a pack of 5 or 10 of these things knowing they never need charging and they cost no more than a few dollars each, I bet they’d be very popular. And I really can’t see them costing that much to make. Inside there’s a flexible solar panel, a thin film battery, printed circuit board display, Bluetooth low-energy module, a grid of pixel electrodes, and a small sheet of E Ink all stuck together using lamination.
