Less aid to poor nations amid financial crunch will worsen food crisis

“The great uncertainty now enveloping international markets and the threat of global recession may tempt countries towards protectionism and towards reassessing their commitments to international development aid,” noted FAO Director-General Jacques Diouf.“It would be unfortunate if this were to be the case and the recently mobilized political will towards enhanced international support for developing country agriculture were to evaporate,” he added, in a statement marking the 34th session of FAO’s Committee on World Food Security (CFS). Mr. Diouf warned that such measures could increase the risk of another food crisis next year, despite the record 2008 cereal harvest which is now expected. According to the latest issue of FAO’s Crop Prospects and Food Situation report, this year’s production is forecasted to increase 4.9 per cent to a record 2.2 million tonnes. At the same time, some 36 countries worldwide are still in need of external aid as a result of crop failures, conflict or insecurity, or continuing local high prices, added the report.The Director-General noted that the financial crisis could have serious implications for the poor in developing countries, following as it does on the heels of the global food crisis which plunged an additional 75 million people into hunger and poverty in 2007.“Last year it was the pan,” said Mr. Diouf. “Next year could be the fire.” Recalling the pledge made by world leaders at the Food Security Summit in June to take steps to tackle the food crisis and its impact on the world’s poor, he urged continued support for the agriculture sector in developing countries.“The global financial crisis should not make us forget the food crisis. Agriculture needs urgent and sustained attention too to make hunger and rural poverty part of history,” he stated. “The great uncertainty now enveloping international markets and the threat of global recession may tempt countries towards protectionism and towards reassessing their commitments to international development aid,” noted FAO Director-General Jacques Diouf.“It would be unfortunate if this were to be the case and the recently mobilized political will towards enhanced international support for developing country agriculture were to evaporate,” he added, in a statement marking the 34th session of FAO’s Committee on World Food Security (CFS).

European nations avow UN centrality in overcoming global obstacles

“The UN is not designed to comfort different leaders in their own convictions – it is the place to confront and surpass differences,” Norwegian Ambassador to the UN, Tine Mørch Smith, stressed today.She spoke out against moves by some nations to promote extreme views, emphasizing that the global problems are too large to be sidetracked by attempts to incite conflict.“We must never forget we are a global community by virtue of the shared risks that stand before us, the shared threats that challenge us and the shared values that bind us together.”The Norwegian official asserted that for the UN to remain relevant, it must continuously reform and adapt as the global environment changes, calling for a continuous push to reform the world body.Witold Sobkow, Poland’s Ambassador to the Organization, highlighted the need for Security Council reform today.“We need to take into account changes in the international system brought about after the end of the Cold War, and at the same time, preserve the Council’s cohesion and the feasibility of the decision-making process,” he said.Mr. Sobkow appealed for an additional non-permanent seat for the Eastern European Group.The Council comprises five permanent members – China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States – and the number of non-permanent members was increased from six to 10 in 1965. Alexandru Cujba, Moldova’s Ambassador to the UN, pointed out that reform of the world body could potentially save significant resources, “which can be redirected to priority areas where the Organization’s support is most needed.”He joined Mr. Sobkow in pushing for the allocation of an extra non-permanent seat to the Eastern European Group.Denmark’s Ambassador to the UN, Carsten Staur, told the Assembly yesterday that the best way to deal with challenges ranging from the future of Sudan, the Middle East peace process, natural disasters and climate change is “through an effective and strong multilateral system – through a strong UN system.”The UN’s ability to deal with this century’s issues must be enhanced, he said, pointing to the need to press ahead with schemes such as “Delivering as One.”That programme was launched in 2007 to respond to global challenges and test how the UN can provide more coordinate development assistance in the nations which volunteered to become pilot cases: Albania, Cape Verde, Mozambique, Pakistan, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uruguay, and Viet Nam.Also yesterday, Sweden urged Member States to assume its share of responsibility to ensure the UN achieves “its full potential.”The Scandinavian nation’s Permanent Representative, Marten Grunditz, drew attention to the world body’s “crucial role in the efforts of the international community to contribute to secure, stable and democratic development in Afghanistan.”Together with the European Union (EU) and other partners, the UN has demonstrated “continued strong resolve in assisting the Afghan people in building a more peaceful and democratic society.”Croatian Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor highlighted the role of the Assembly in “forming the global response to the challenges placed before us by the contemporary world.”Addressing the debate on Monday, she noted that obstacles including terrorism and climate change are being increasingly global in scope.“In the same way, contemporary social and economic relationships have long grown far beyond the narrow national frameworks, and through the flow of people, goods, services and capital, are creating an unbreakable global network of mutual relations and influence,” Ms. Kosor emphasized.Sergei Aleinik, Deputy Foreign Minister of Belarus, told the Assembly that particular attention should be paid in the economic sphere, noting that the largest developed countries spend trillions of dollars supporting their own economies while financing for poorer nations remains low. 29 September 2010European nations have underlined the crucial role of the United Nations in prevailing over key global challenges, urging continued reform of the Organization to ensure its efficiency at the General Assembly’s annual high-level debate. read more

Shkreli jury selection expected to take a third day

by The Associated Press Posted Jun 26, 2017 10:12 pm MDT Last Updated Jun 27, 2017 at 6:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Shkreli jury selection expected to take a third day NEW YORK, N.Y. – Jury selection at the securities fraud trial of a former pharmaceutical CEO notorious for price-gouging hit a rough patch on Tuesday as the court struggled to pick a pool of prospective jurors who could ignore a swirl of bad publicity for the defendant.A third day of jury selection in Martin Shkreli’s trial was expected on Wednesday with opening statements put off until Thursday morning.On Tuesday, defence lawyers complained to the judge that news coverage of potential jurors’ negative remarks about him was tainting the process. Under questioning by the judge, one of them had called him “the face of corporate greed,” a reference to his reputation for raising the price of a life-saving drug by 5,000 per cent and making no apologies about it.The judge denied defence requests to start the selection over and ban reporters from listening in on sidebars. She agreed to re-question about 40 people who had already qualified for the pool as a precaution.The judge excused one prospective juror after he told her that he worked for a media company where he became aware of Shkreli’s use of Twitter to troll his critics.“I’ve seen some of the defamitory comments he’s made on that platform,” the man said.Out of earshot of the man, defence attorney Benjamin Brafman told the sidebar: “Unfortunately, the Twitter history is just horrific.”Shkreli is accusing of lying to investors in a hedge fund he ran, charges unrelated to his drug pricing. Former Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO Martin Shkreli, left, arrives to federal court with his attorney Benjamin Brafman in New York, Monday, June 26, 2017. Even with his federal securities fraud trial set to begin Monday, Shkreli has blatantly defied his attorneys’ advice to lay low. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig) read more

Shipping firm blames fee hike on federal measures to protect right whales

A ballet of three North Atlantic right whale tails are all that is visible of this surface active group (SAG) in Cape Cod Bay, near Provincetown, Mass., Thursday, April 10, 2008. A Newfoundland shipping firm is raising its fees, blaming higher costs because of federal measures taken to protect North Atlantic right whales after a series of deaths. THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP-Stephan Savoia Shipping firm blames fee hike on federal measures to protect right whales by The Canadian Press Posted Aug 18, 2017 10:24 am MDT Last Updated Aug 18, 2017 at 12:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – A Newfoundland shipping firm is raising its fees, blaming higher costs because of federal measures taken to protect North Atlantic right whales after a series of deaths.Oceanex Inc. says the four-per-cent “temporary marine protection surcharge” on service between Montreal and St. John’s, N.L., follows a federal speed limit imposed last Friday in an area of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.Ten of the endangered mammals have died in the gulf since early June — at least some after colliding with ships.Oceanex says in a release Friday the new regulations mean its vessels must travel more quickly outside the speed-restricted zone.It says the measure “significantly increases vessel fuel consumption” and raises labour costs in port.In a notification to clients, Oceanex asks them to raise any concerns about the regulation with the federal government.“As a marine transportation operator, Oceanex is cognizant of its responsibility to promote navigation safety and protection of the marine environment. As such, Oceanex is taking the necessary action to comply with the government order while still providing its customers with reliable transportation solutions,” the notification says.“Oceanex has advised the government of Canada of the significant impact of this temporary regulation and encourages you to raise any of your concerns regarding this issue with your local federal government of Canada representative.”Transport Minister Marc Garneau announced vessels of 20 metres or more will be required to slow to 10 knots — or about 19 km/h — while travelling in the western Gulf of St. Lawrence, from the Quebec north shore to just north of Prince Edward Island.Smaller ships are being asked to voluntarily abide by the speed limit, which will remain in place until the whales have migrated from the areas of the gulf that pose the most concern. read more

South Sudan UN agency warns of catastrophic food shortages if conflict continues

Without such commitment, the country’s conflict areas face potentially catastrophic food shortages, UNICEF warned, pointing to the latest Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) group of experts’ report, which is released this week, and to its own latest nutrition survey, which supports the IPC’s findings.“UNICEF needs access to remote areas made inaccessible because of the fighting,” the agency’s Representative in South Sudan, Jonathan Veitch, said. “This is where the crisis is forming. Both parties to the ceasefire need to reach a long-term settlement or face a growing food crisis by the end of the dry and lean season.”Mr. Veitch said UNICEF and its partners are starting to see large numbers of people on the move in conflict areas because of food shortages. At least 229,000 children are estimated to be suffering from severe acute malnutrition in South Sudan – a number that has doubled since the start of the conflict just over a year ago.“We remain on edge, and any increase in violence will see supply routes cut, markets disrupted and humanitarian access denied. This would be catastrophic for acutely malnourished children and could quickly lead to high levels of mortality.”Working with the World Food Programme (WFP), UNICEF continues to step up aid for malnourished children across South Sudan. UNICEF and partners provided therapeutic feeding treatment for almost 100,000 severely malnourished in 2014 and are aiming to reach 137,000 children under five suffering from severe acute malnutrition in 2015.UNICEF and WFP are also flying in expert teams to remote locations that are cut off from humanitarian aid, in what is called Rapid Response Missions. During these missions, UNICEF screens children for malnutrition and refers and treats those who are moderately and severely malnourished. Staff will also register unaccompanied children in order to reunify them with their families, provide basic health and education services, and deliver supplies to provide safe water. More than 600,000 people, including over 142,000 children under the age of five, have been reached through 37 missions to date.UNICEF is urgently appealing for additional funding of $34 million to continue to boost its nutrition response in South Sudan in 2015. read more

At Ocean Conference UN agencies commit to cutting harmful fishing subsidies

The agencies – the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) – are due to announce the commitment today at The Ocean Conference, which opened yesterday at UN Headquarters in New York and wraps up on Friday, 9 June. “Trade and trade-policies can facilitate the transition to sustainable ocean-based economies by increasing resource efficiency, improving the environment, enhancing inclusiveness and creating new green business opportunities,” according to the voluntary commitment. One of outcomes of the commitment is the removal or reduction of harmful fisheries subsidies which are estimated to be as high as $35 billion. The issue is “complicated and thorny,” according to the UN agencies. “For the majority of fisheries subsidies, there is a strong correlation with over capacity and overfishing.” The commitment likely involves requesting countries to provide information on what subsidies they provide and prohibiting those that contribute to overfishing, as well as potentially giving differential treatment to developing countries.RELATED: Ocean conference eyes cutting $35 billion in fisheries subsidies – UN trade officials The Ocean Conference focuses on the targets outlined in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by Governments in 2015. In particular among the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Goal 14 highlights the need to conserve and sustainably use oceans, seas and marine resources to benefit present and future generations. The commitment on fisheries is one of some 850 commitments made at the Conference so far. The voluntary commitments are meant to be taken individually or in partnership by Governments, the UN system, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and others, to support SDG14. In addition to marking voluntary commitments, participants this week are also due to adopt, by consensus, a “Call to Action” to protect the world’s oceans and seas.ental organizations, the private sector, and others, to support SDG14. read more

Gothams Ridiculous Dark Knight Story Returns

first_img One episode into the new season of Gotham and it’s off to a much stronger start than last year’s. This is a show that knows what we want and isn’t afraid to give it to us. We want crazy villains; this show’s got crazy villains. We want ridiculously improbable storylines; this show’s got those in spades. We want Batman; this show’s got Batman… or a reasonable approximation thereof! Gotham will never be an actual Batman show. Once Bruce Wayne actually dons the cowl, it’s not about the city anymore; it’s about Batman. That’s why this is the closest we’re going to get. And you know? It’s close enough that I don’t mind.After nearly losing Alfred at the end of last season, Bruce has taken to fighting street criminals to train for Ra’s al Ghul’s return. (Of course, Ra’s is already in Gotham, watching Bruce’s every move, but Bruce doesn’t know that yet.) Bruce stops a very similar crime to the one that killed his parents, but one of the criminals complains he has a license. Yes, criminals now have licenses to commit crimes in Gotham. It’s Penguin’s latest plan to Make Gotham Safe Again. (Man, that joke was a lot funnier before November of last year.) By licensing crimes and getting the GCPD to agree to leave licensed criminals alone, Penguin has more than cut Gotham’s crime rate in half. He’s also taking in a cut of any money received and passing along a tiny percentage to the commissioner to keep the police on board.Maggie Geha (Cr: Jeff Neumann/FOX.)Now, this is the kind of hilariously corrupt, terrible idea you can only find on Gotham. This is the show embracing its insanity. It’s not trying to be a serious drama. It’s just finding new exciting ways to pit criminals, cops and the occasional vigilante against each other. It’s a very expensive version of smacking action figures together. Crime is legal now, but only if you have your criming license! It’s almost as bad an idea as blocking off an entire section of the city to serve as a prison. And I wouldn’t put that past this show either.As you might expect, Gordon isn’t too keen on the idea of letting organized crime run Gotham. Especially ones that rob the bar where he gets his coffee. He argues that under the new system, Gotham’s citizens would begin to trust Penguin instead of the cops. When Penguin’s plan inevitably falls apart, it’ll be harder to get the people on their side again if the GCPD spent their time doing nothing. Most of the department though, is just happy cops aren’t getting shot anymore. Gotham gets points here for at least giving complicit cops a reason to cooperate with Penguin beyond plain corruption. You can even see their position. If I were a police officer in Gotham City, I’d welcome any break from supervillains trying to kill me.Ben McKenzie and Donal Logue (Cr: Jeff Neumann/FOX.)Of course, supervillains are exactly where Penguin’s licensing scheme falls apart. And boy, does the first half of the season have a great Batman villain in store for us. The unlicensed criminals kidnap the son of Dr. Crane, the inventor of the fear toxin from last season. They use the fear toxin to rob a bank and get away with it before trying to use it against the Penguin at his new club. They also lock Jonathan Crane in a room with the scarecrow he’s terrified of. See where this is going. As villain origins go, this was one of the more fun ones Gotham has given us. It was quick, simple and gave the episode a terrifying ending. This version of Scarecrow might even be scarier than the one in Batman Begins. Speaking of which, I kind of love how shamelessly this season is just remaking that movie. We have Bruce learning how to accomplish his goals as both Batman and Bruce Wayne, Ra’s Al Ghul is hidden somewhere in the city, and now Scarecrow is running around. They even had Bruce pull the disappearing act on Gordon in the middle of a sentence. Gotham has always been Fanservice: The TV Show, and it’s great to see them embrace it so fully like this.The episode fell apart a little bit at the end. Once it got all its characters in the same room, it didn’t really know what to do. There was an awkward, kinda funny flirtation between Bruce and Selina. It didn’t do much except give Alfred a great exasperated line. Penguin captured the criminals before they could use the fear gas, and he would have killed them if Ivy hadn’t cut the power. Her motivations for doing that are… unclear. Is it just because he pissed her off? So Penguin would have killed the men, and the GCPD would still look utterly powerless if Penguin had been a little more patient with Ivy? It doesn’t make a ton of sense, and as a climax to an episode, it’s a little unsatisfying.Sean Pertwee, David Mazouz and Camren Bicondova (Cr: Jeff Neumann/FOX.)Gotham is back, and it’s just as joyously stupid as ever. The season four premiere didn’t move the overall story forward much, but it set some exciting things in motion for the rest of the season. Selina’s relationship with Tabitha is cute, and watching them become partners in crime should make for some entertaining TV. Robin Lord Taylor’s performance still puts a gigantic smile on my face, and his new hairstyle is perfect for the villain he’s turning into. The Riddler being encased in ice is a nice Chekhov Gun for the rest of the season. We know he’ll thaw out and come after the Penguin sometime this season. It’s just a question of when. That tension alone gives this season a ton of potential. Finally, there’s Bruce Wayne captured by the police right at the end. That should give us at least one interesting storyline next week. As far as Gotham episodes go, it didn’t reach the crazy highs this show is capable of, but it’s not hard to see how this season could get there. Mostly, I’m just happy it’s back.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Prior to being banned from most major platforms, Jones also had individual videos removed for hate speech and other terms of use violations.Jones spread the false claim that the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax, and last week, parents of children murdered in the tragedy won a legal victory against the pundit. A judge ruled that the families of the victims must be granted access to financial records and other documents as part of the discovery process in an ongoing lawsuit against Infowars.An attorney representing several of the families also criticized the company for carrying Infowars in a statement released Tuesday afternoon:“Roku’s shocking decision to carry Infowars and provide a platform for Alex Jones is an insult to the memory of the 26 children and educators killed at Sandy Hook. Worse, it interferes with families’ efforts to prevent people like Jones from profiting off innocent victims whose lives have been turned upside down by unspeakable loss. We call on Roku to realize this and immediately pull the program.” Popular on Variety The company originally responded to the controversy by saying Infowars wasn’t currently violating its terms of use. Digiday first reported that Roku added Infowars six months after major platforms, including Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and Apple’s app store, removed Jones and his outlet from their services.Infowars had been on Roku for years with a channel apparently created by Infowars contributor Paul Joseph Watson. In recent weeks, the company added another channel that seems to have been created by an outside web development company. Roku has taken the Infowars channel off its platform after the streaming device faced criticism for carrying the controversial program hosted by right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.“After the InfoWars channel became available, we heard from concerned parties and have determined that the channel should be removed from our platform,” stated the company’s tweet on Tuesday evening. “Deletion from the channel store and platform has begun and will be completed shortly.”last_img read more

Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Russia’s communications minister had warned that authorities would bar access to YouTube if its owner, Google Inc., failed to abide by a court order to block access in this nation to the U.S.-produced film, which mocks Muslims and the Prophet Muhammad.Google in Russia has said it could restrict access to the video, if it received a court order outlawing it, but the company declined to discuss that issue with The Associated Press on Monday evening.Outrage at the film has spiraled into violent protests across several countries across the Muslim world. Some two dozen demonstrators have been killed in protests that attacked vestiges of the U.S. and the West, including diplomatic compounds.The low-budget film, “Innocence of Muslims,” was produced by a U.S. citizen and denigrated the Prophet Muhammad by portraying Islam’s holiest figure as a fraud, womanizer and child molester.Two issues have fueled calls by Russian lawmakers for a new law banning religious offenses: this film and the case of rock band Pussy Riot’s punk performance February in Moscow’s Christ the Savior cathedral, which saw them be convicted of hooliganism and sentenced to a two-year jail term. Associated PressMOSCOW (AP) – A court in Moscow ruled Monday that an anti-Islam film that has sparked violent demonstrations around the world can no longer be shown in Russia.Tverskoi court’s ruling follows a similar local decision taken last week by a court in Grozny, the provincial capital of Russia’s Muslim-dominated province of Chechnya.In Moscow, Justice Ministry spokeswoman Marina Gridneva said the film was deemed extremist because it could incite ethnic and religious hatred.
