A Chelsea spokesman said the Blues were “extremely disappointed” by the disturbances and the club condemned such behaviour. West Ham manager Slaven Bilic also condemned the violence, which overshadowed a fine performance by his side. “We are totally against it as a club,” said the former Croatia defender, whose team will visit Manchester United in the quarter-finals. “For those kind of things to happen, especially in England, is unacceptable.” Chelsea manager Antonio Conte added: “I dont like this type of situation. Above all in England, we are used to see the right atmosphere. This country is fantastic in this aspect.” Separately, West Ham have announced an investigation after flyers with graphic homophobic content were distributed to fans before the match. The flyers called for a homophobic song to be chanted at Chelsea captain John Terry. AFP KHS KHSlast_img read more

first_imgLast week, the Duchess of Cambridge officially opened the Natural History Museum’s Hintze Hall, and spoke about marine conservation.The Duchess of Cambridge with Sir David AttenboroughCredit/Copyright: Royal.ukAs Patron of the museum, The Duchess attended the unveiling of the new whale skeleton, alongside Sir David Attenborough, and spoke publicly for first time about her interest in marine conservation.The Duchess was shown around the new hall by Museum Director Sir Michael Dixon and viewed the new ‘Bay of Wonders’ exhibitions with Sir David Attenborough.Opening to the public on the 14 July 2017, the new Hintze Hall contains abeautiful star display and a skeleton of Earth’s largest known animal, the blue whale – replacing Dippy, the 21.3m resin cast of a diplodocus dinosaur skeleton, which is now on tour around the UK.After years of excessive hunting, whales were dangerously close to becoming extinct. In 1966, they became the first animal protected by international law and since then populations have slowly recovered.The Blue Whale skeleton, which was lovingly prepared by curators and scientists for months, has been named Hope – to remind visitors of the fragility of the ocean and our shared responsibility to look after it.“As we are increasingly learning, marine conservation is a global challenge, for all nations and all people.“I, personally, have always been in awe of the sea. As someone who has been fortunate to experience scuba diving, something I love doing, and seeing the incredible marine life, I have come to care deeply about life under our waters and the conservation of our oceans.“Sir David Attenborough has famously talked about the fact that people will not protect what they don’t first care about, and will not care about what they have never experienced. This idea lies at the heart of this new Hintze Hall design. As I stand here tonight, I have every confidence that this spectacular display will go a long way not only inspire a new generation but it will also encourage us all to think about and to care for our marine life.“Our Blue Whale, Hope, at the heart of the museum will help the millions of visitors that come here each year, experience the wonders of our oceans.”The Duchess is also Patron of of marine charity the 1851 Trust, but this is the first time HRH has spoken publicly about her interest in marine conservation.Source:Royal.uklast_img read more

first_imgThe Canadian PressA coastal British Columbia First Nation that experienced a spill of thousands of litres of diesel in its waters is supporting the province’s efforts to create a permitting system for companies transporting hazardous substances.The B.C. Court of Appeal is hearing a reference case filed by the province that asks whether it can create such a system, which would require companies to file disaster management plans and agree to pay for any damages.Marilyn Slett, chief of the Heiltsuk Nation, said her community’s experience revealed gaps in federal spill response. The sunken tug Nathan E. Stewart spilled 110,000 litres of diesel fuel near Bella Bella in late 2016.“The day the spill happened, our people were out there. They were out in their boats, they were there trying to help with any of the recovery. What we noticed is there isn’t room for Indigenous people and Indigenous governance within the spill response regime,” she said in an interview.B.C. concluded its arguments before the Appeal Court on Tuesday. A lawyer representing the province said the proposed changes to its Environmental Management Act won’t allow B.C. to refuse a permit to a pipeline operator without cause.The governments of Canada, Alberta and Saskatchewan have not yet had an opportunity to deliver arguments in court, but they say Ottawa – not provinces – has jurisdiction over inter-provincial projects such as the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.Canada says in court documents that the proposed amendments must be struck down because they give the province a “veto” over such projects.Slett said she believes that if B.C.’s proposed system had been in place when the Nathan E. Stewart sank, the recovery would be further along now. She also hopes the province’s regime, if approved, will incorporate Indigenous knowledge of their territories.“Our people know our areas. They know the tides. They know the weather patterns,” she said.The Heiltsuk have joined other First Nations, the B.C. cities of Vancouver and Burnaby, Ecojustice and the Assembly of First Nations in supporting B.C.’s proposal in court.In court documents, the Assembly of First Nations says the answers to the constitutional questions in the case will have far-reaching consequences for Indigenous Peoples when it comes to natural resources and energy activities on their lands.“The proposed hazardous substance permits must be interpreted in a way that the rights and authorities of First Nation peoples are recognized, respected and part of the construction process,” it says.Front linesThe City of Vancouver says in court documents that local and First Nations governments are on the front lines of emergency response and will suffer the impacts of a heavy oil spill.“The proposed amendments recognize the important role that emergency preparedness and response planning by local governments and First Nation governments will play in the event of an accidental release of heavy oil and the need to ensure that they are properly resourced to respond,” it says.Joseph Arvay, a lawyer for B.C., told court on Tuesday the proposed amendments only allow the province to refuse to issue a permit or revoke one in cases where the operator fails to follow conditions imposed upon it.He added that if the operator finds the conditions too onerous, it can appeal to the independent Environmental Appeal Board, or in the case of Trans Mountain, the National Energy Board.The energy board has set up a process where Trans Mountain Corp. can argue that a condition is too burdensome and violates the special status of inter-provincial projects, he said.“The NEB effectively gets the last word … but it’s going to be condition by condition, law by law,” Arvay told the panel of five judges.Arvay said the law would be unconstitutional if it declared an absolute prohibition on pipelines in B.C., but the amendments only impose conditions on trans-boundary projects.When Premier John Horgan announced the proposed changes last year, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley accused him of breaking the rules of Confederation and declared a short-lived ban on B.C. wines.The federal government has purchased the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, which would triple the capacity of the existing line from the Edmonton area to Burnaby and increase tanker traffic in Burrard Inlet seven-fold.Trans Mountain Corp., the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, Enbridge Inc., the Railway Association of Canada and the Lax Kw’alaams Indian Band are among those that have filed court documents in support of the Canadian government in the reference case.last_img read more

In a new report entitled “The Right to Decent Work of Persons with Disabilities,” the International Labour Organization (ILO) states that although much has been accomplished in recent years to improve the lives of persons with disabilities, millions around the world continue to suffer violations of their rights. They tend to experience high unemployment, underemployment, have lower earnings than persons without disabilities and often drop out of the labour market completely, according to the report – released today for the International Day of Disabled Persons, which this year focuses on the goal of decent work for people with disabilities. At the same time, there is a growing awareness that people with disabilities represent enormous, untapped economic potential, and that they can make a valuable contribution to national economies, the report adds. “Decent work is the ILO’s primary goal for everyone, including people with disabilities,” says ILO Director-General Juan Somavia. “When we promote the rights and dignity of people with disabilities, we are empowering individuals, enriching societies and strengthening economies. We must intensify our efforts to step up the pace of change.” The agency estimates that some 650 million people – or one out of every 10 people in the world – have a disability, and that of these, approximately 470 million are of working age. Despite efforts to ensure access to jobs, people with disabilities as a group often face disproportionate levels of poverty and unemployment. “There is a strong link between disability and poverty,” the report states, adding that an estimated 80 per cent of all people with disabilities in the world live in developing countries. Of these, some 426 million live below the poverty line. The report stresses the need for significant efforts to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities in employment, which will also contribute to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for halving poverty by the year 2015. The ILO said the new UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities adopted last December, which guarantees the right to work, will go a long way in helping to promote inclusion. Since its adoption, 118 countries have signed the Convention which introduces new international human rights standards to combat discrimination and promote equality of persons with disabilities. Marking the International Day, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCR) today launched a series of commitments to improve the working conditions of staff with disabilities. “The international community adopted new international standards on the rights of persons with disabilities one year ago,” said Louise Arbour. “Those standards should apply to the United Nations as much as to States and I commit to promoting decent work in my Office over the coming year as part of this effort.” The commitments include improving working conditions for staff with disabilities and for staff who have children with disabilities, sensitizing staff about disabilities in the workplace, and introducing an internship programme for interns with disabilities. 3 December 2007The United Nations agency tasked with ensuring decent work for all called today for greater efforts to break down the barriers that still prevent millions of people with disabilities from fully participating in the labour market, citing a strong link between disability and poverty. read more

Hundreds of people attended a memorial ceremony and concert at the General Assembly Hall at UN Headquarters in New York, held as part of a series of worldwide events marking the International Day in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust. The Nürnberg Philharmonic Orchestra, the Bayreuth Zamir Choir and the Jerusalem Oratorio Chamber Choir, under the baton of Maestro Isaak Tavior, performed a range of works, including pieces by Beethoven and Brahms. Nechama Tec, a Holocaust survivor and Professor Emerita of Sociology at the University of Connecticut in the United States, and Andrzej Mirga, Senior Adviser on Roma and Sinti Issues for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (OSCE/ODIHR), also gave speeches reflecting this year’s theme for the Day – “The Legacy of Survival.” Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information Kiyo Akasaka told the ceremony that it was vital that the world never forgets the stories of the men, women and children who endured the Holocaust. “We have much to learn from their experiences and the painful and inspiring legacy they leave to future generations,” he said. “And as the number of survivors become smaller and smaller, their testimony becomes more and more precious. “It is crucial to share their legacy, to ensure that people everywhere understand the universal lessons of the Holocaust, and to instil respect for diversity and human rights in generations to come.” Estimates vary but about 6 million Jews are thought to have been killed in the genocide perpetrated by the Nazis, as well as countless numbers of Roma, Slavs, homosexuals, disabled people, Jehovah’s witnesses, Communists and political dissidents. The UN has observed 27 January as the Day for remembering the victims since the General Assembly made the designation in 2005. Today marks the 65th anniversary to the day of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest and most notorious of all of the camps. Tonight’s ceremony, which was sponsored by the Permanent Mission of Germany, was attended by Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro and by Byrganym Aitimova, the Vice-President of the General Assembly, as well as by dignitaries from many countries. Peter Wittig, Germany’s Permanent Representative to the UN, and Yuli-Yoel Edelstein, Israel’s Minister of Information and Diaspora, made statements at the ceremony and Ms. Aitimova delivered a message on behalf of Ali Treki, the General Assembly President. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, en route to London for an international conference on Afghanistan, recorded a video message in which he spoke as well about the legacy of the survivors. “All of them carry a crucial message for all of us,” he said. “A message about the triumph of the human spirit. A living testament that tyranny, though it may rise, will surely not prevail.” Earlier today, the UN’s Chef de Cabinet, Vijay Nambiar, participated in an event at the Italian Consulate in New York in which the names of about 8,000 Italian Jews deported during World War II were read out. Mr. Nambiar was joined by representatives of Italy, Israel and Germany at the event, which was co-organized by the consulate, the Centro Primo Levi, a number of Italian-American authorities and New York City authorities. Holocaust remembrance events are also being held this week by the UN at its offices in Geneva and Vienna and across its global network of information centres, including in Bucharest and Bogotá. For the first time, observances were held in Myanmar and Namibia. 27 January 2010With the help of stirring music from a German-Israeli chorus and solemn speeches, the United Nations tonight paid tribute to the victims of the Holocaust and spotlighted the legacy of the survivors of the Nazi death camps in World War II. read more

14 September 2010Latin American countries must increase their annual education budgets if they are to reach the goals they have set for improving their national education systems, according to a new United Nations report released today. The report, prepared jointly by the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and the Organization of Iberoamerican States for Education, Science and Culture, called for each country in the region to boost its education spending by 0.1 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP) as of 2013.In April last year Latin American countries set a target date of 2021 for creating what they described as a solid foundation for sustained economic, social and cultural development, along with stronger democracy and social citizenship.The new report arrived at its recommendation after first estimating the funding needed to meet those goals.In that process, carried out with the participation of the countries, it became clear that some States would need additional sources of funding, both domestic and external, to reach their target. External measures could include establishing funds that would contribute between 20 and 40 per cent of the requirements of those in need.If education funding is not increased as recommended, the annual deficit in education programmes in Latin America as a whole during the period 2011-2021 will average nearly $1.1 billion in 2005 figures, the study declared. read more

BROSSARD, Que. — The Montreal Canadiens will have captain Shea Weber back on the ice when they host the Carolina Hurricanes Tuesday night.It will be Weber’s first game since Dec. 16, 2017.The 33-year-old defenceman spent the last 11 months recovering from injuries to his left foot and knee and surgeries to repair both issues.Weber told reporters after the Canadiens’ practice Monday that he felt good physically and was ready to play.“It’s been a long time,” Weber said. “It’s been frustrating, it’s been hard, it’s been gruelling. But we’re here.“I’m excited right now to get going.”When a reporter pointed out how long it had been since he last played — 345 days — Weber laughed.“I should be well rested then,” he said.“Try to keep it simple, help out any way I can and hopefully help us moving forward,” he added when asked what he expects from himself in his return.The Canadiens have lost four straight games and open Tuesday fifth in the Atlantic Division with 27 points through 24 games.Weber had six goals and 10 assists in 26 games for Montreal last season.He has 189 career goals in 867 regular-season games.

Burrow said he would decide in the coming weeks which school he would attend for the upcoming season. After weeks of struggling with this decision, I have decided to leave Ohio State and explore other options. My teammates and coaches all know the love I feel for them. I will decide where I will play next year in the coming weeks.— Joey Burrow (@Joe_Burrow10) May 8, 2018Graduating from Ohio State on Sunday, Burrow will be able to play immediately for whichever school he decides to transfer to and has two remaining seasons of eligibility. Battling with quarterbacks Dwayne Haskins and Tate Martell for the starting position in the 2018 season, the former four-star recruit played in 11 career games for the Buckeyes, completing 74.4 percent of his passes for 287 yards and two touchdowns. With the transfer, Ohio State is down to three scholarship quarterbacks in Haskins, Martell and Matthew Baldwin, a member of the 2018 class who is recovering from a knee injury. With the loss of Burrow, the Buckeyes now have 86 scholarship players on the roster. The NCAA mandates that any college team must only have 85 players on a roster to be on scholarship. read more

first_imgDish Network acquired Blockbuster at the beginning of the month, but at that time it wasn’t clear what they would do with Blockbuster’s chain of 1700 retail stores. This week, the company announced that they would take on the leases for 500 of those stores. The other 1200 will presumably close or be sold to the highest bidder.Dish Network filed papers with the US Bankruptcy Court handling the Blockbuster purchase that notes they’ll take ownership of 500 of Blockbuster’s store leases, but declined to say explicitly what would happen to the others and which stores would remain open. They did say however that Dish Network would grant Blockbuster “cross-marketing and service extension opportunities,” which sounds like they plan to leverage Blockbuster’s streaming video on-demand services and its disc-by-mail business.AdChoices广告Most analysts predicted that the acquisition meant that Dish Network was planning to leverage Blockbuster’s most valuable assets: its deals with movie studios and television networks, and its streaming video service. They also predicted that Dish would cross-promote its satellite television services with Blocxkbuster’s disc-by-mail and streaming video services. Many also predicted that Dish would shed Blockbuster’s stores entirely, so retaining 500 of them is an interesting move.What Dish Network has in store for those brick-and-mortar stores is anyone’s guess. It’s possible that Dish is planning a retail venture similar to Redbox‘s kiosk business with the remaining stores, or that they’ll keep the stores with prime real-estate for future sales. Dish Network has been purposefully quiet on its plans, partially to give itself room to maneuver when the $280 million deal is finished and approved by a bankruptcy judge. Regardless, expect to hear more when Dish Network unveils the list of stores they want to take ownership of and the longer list of video stores they plan to close.Read more at USA Todaylast_img read more

first_img Comments Instagram is making it easier to recover your accounts if hackers take it over. Alfred Ng / CNET Instagram is testing new features that could make it harder for hackers to steal accounts and hold them for ransom. Hackers have been targeting high-profile Instagram accounts owned by influencers, and threatening to delete them unless victims pay up. First reported by Motherboard, victims had to pay more than $100 to retrieve their accounts, some of which had more than 50,000 followers before it was taken over.In other cases, hackers will leverage accounts with massive followers and sell off those accounts for as much as $100,000, The Atlantic reported. These victims often can’t retrieve their profiles through traditional methods because the hackers will take measures like changing the account’s email address and phone numbers to prevent recoveries. Mobile Security How to get your Instagram account back from hackers (The… Instagram will start locking old usernames for 14 days after changing so the previous owner can revert to it within the grace periodThis is the end of username grabber bots 😀 pic.twitter.com/mAAgbDYny2— Jane Manchun Wong (@wongmjane) March 20, 2019 Now playing: Watch this: Tagscenter_img 4:29 Share your voice “We know that losing access to your account can be a distressing experience. We have measures in place to stop accounts from being hacked in the first place, as well as measures to help people recover their accounts,” Instagram said in a statement. “But we heard from the community that these measures aren’t enough, and people are struggling to regain access to their accounts.”Last August, Instagram acknowledged “people are having difficulties accessing their Instagram accounts,” telling people to enable two-factor authentication and using stronger passwords. Instagram accounts can be hacked in many ways: whether it’s through a phishing link, or if the victim uses the same login and password for another service that suffered a data breach. Victims have complained in the past that Instagram did not do much to help them retrieve their hacked accounts. On Monday, Instagram announced two new features to help victims retrieve their hacked accounts. Now, if Instagram detects you’re having trouble logging on or if you click on “Need more help” on the login page, the app will ask people to enter information like the email and phone number tied to your account. recovering-hacked-accountsYou can recover your hacked Instagram accounts even if the attackers changed the email address and phone numbers needed for recovery. Instagram If hackers changed that contact information, you can ask Instagram to send a six-digit recovery code to the email or phone number you originally used to sign up for the app. Instagram said that it would remove all additional devices from the account after using this verification method, so hackers on other devices would be kicked off and unable to get back on. Once you’ve recovered your stolen account, you can choose what email address and phone number you want associated with your profile.Instagram also announced a separate feature that was already available to all Android users and will be rolling out on iOS, aimed at stopping name-squatters. Instagram accounts with popular handles are often targeted for hacks, as attackers can grab them and sell them off for high prices. Now, when someone changes their username, it’ll be locked for a period of time before someone can take it. This feature was quietly rolled out and first discovered by app researcher Jane Manchun Wong in March. 2 Instagramlast_img read more

first_imgMetal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was expected to be a big success for Konami last year and it certainly came through in that regard. The stealth-action game has sold more than six million copies throughout the world since it was released last September.Konami’s gaming division received a big boost thanks to the success of MGSV, with their digital entertainment segment enjoyed a 37.5 percent boost in revenue. This has given the company a 62.6 percent operating profit boost of $146.6 million for the first nine months of the fiscal year.For the immediate future, however, it doesn’t seem likely that Konami will repeat this success in 2016 considering that it only has two Yu-Gi-Oh games releasing in the West. One is coming out for the 3DS and the other is coming to mobile devices. Not to knock on fans of Yu-Gi-Oh, but let’s be honest: if that’s all Konami has going on, you can expect to see reports of Konami losing profits sometime next year.As for the Metal Gear Solid franchise itself, things aren’t guaranteed to remain so rosy for it. As you all know, series creator, Hideo Kojima, had a very public falling out with Konami last year. Now that Kojima has partnered with Sony and has brought along some of his team from the former version of Kojima Productions, Konami is assembling a new development team to continue making MGS games. Will this upcoming game be anywhere near as successful as MGSV? That remains to be seen.last_img read more
