Obstructionist States paralyze UN in face of major crises Lithuanian leader says

23 September 2008United Nations efforts to resolve conflicts and crises around the world are being blocked by States that avoid punishment by claiming national sovereignty, Lithuania’s President told the annual high-level debate of the General Assembly today. Valdas Adamkus said the UN did not responded sufficiently or quickly enough to recent crises in various hotspots, such as Myanmar, Sudan and Zimbabwe.“The world needed UN leadership,” he said. “But the Organization has not acted accordingly. It is because some States hide behind the technicalities or the shield of national sovereignty, thus paralyzing the UN.”Mr. Adamkus cited the recent outbreak of deadly fighting in Georgia that involved Georgian, Russian and South Ossetian forces as an example of the UN having “largely failed to react to an act of aggression against a small nation.”He said: “Perhaps we have failed to react because one of the interested sides to the conflict is a permanent member of the Security Council, which has the responsibility to adhere strictly to the letter and the spirit of the UN Charter and United Nations resolutions.”The Lithuanian President reminded world leaders attending the high-level debate that it is the mission of the UN to protect human life and human rights.“The United Nations cannot be a mere passive observer if and when universal values and international law are under threat. Still, too often we remain observers in the face of mounting security crises.”The President said it was clear that the UN needs to reform so that it is more focused on the issues “that will determine the future of the 21st century, such as energy, information security, [the] fight against terrorism and fundamentalism, and the like.”He added that the world body must also become more responsive to emerging threats, such as unreliable energy supplies or coordinated cyber-attacks. read more

Orders for longlasting manufactured goods drop 42 per cent most in 3

WASHINGTON – Orders for long-lasting factory goods fell by the largest amount in three years last month, mostly because demand for commercial aircraft plummeted. But companies also ordered less machinery and other equipment, a sign manufacturing output may slow.Orders for durable goods dropped 4.2 per cent in March, the steepest fall since January 2009, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. Commercial aircraft orders, a volatile category, fell by nearly 50 per cent.Excluding transportation equipment, orders declined 1.1 per cent. That’s the second drop in that category in three months.And orders for so-called “core” capital goods, a good measure of business investment plans, declined 0.8 per cent. Companies are reducing their orders for steel and other metals, industrial machinery and computers.A durable good is expected to last at least three years. Examples range from appliances and cars to heavy machinery and planes.Manufacturing has been a leading source of growth and jobs since the recession ended. Americans have stepped up their purchases of autos and electronic goods this year. Businesses have invested in more industrial machinery, computers and other equipment.Both trends have kept factories humming, but there have been some hints that the sector could slow.Factory output fell in March, the Federal Reserve said last week. Companies made fewer electronic products and cut back on steel and other metals.And a private survey showed that the manufacturing sector expanded last month and companies said they were adding more jobs. Order backlogs also grew.Americans are still spending, despite recent increases in gas prices. Retail sales rose at a healthy pace in March, the government said last week, boosted in part by unseasonably warm weather. Consumers also bought more furniture, cars, and other durable goods.

Greek socialist leader Venizelos says no coalition deal yet will keep up

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Greek socialist leader Venizelos says no coalition deal yet, will keep up efforts ATHENS, Greece – Greek socialist leader Evangelos Venizelos said Wednesday there has been no success so far in negotiations to form a coalition government after weekend elections resulted in a deadlock.Venizelos, a former finance minister whose PASOK party came in third with 13.18 per cent, is next in line to take over the mandate of trying to cobble together a coalition and said he would continue the efforts when he is handed the task on Thursday.Alexis Tsipras, head of the Radical Left Coalition, or Syriza, was leading the talks on Wednesday, and met with Venizelos as well as the heads of other parties on the right and left of the political spectrum. Tsipras has been seeking support for a left-wing government that will reject the terms of Greece’s international bailout — which critics say will lead the country out of the euro.Sunday’s election result was a severe blow to PASOK, which has dominated Greek politics along with the rival conservatives New Democracy for four decades and stormed to victory with a landslide in the previous elections in 2009.Its popularity suffered from the harsh austerity measures it imposed in return for two multibillion euro international bailouts. The measures, which included salary and pension cuts and repeated tax hikes, have left Greece in a fifth year of recession.Venizelos insisted it was imperative for Greece to remain within Europe’s joint currency.“Mr. Tsipras asked me if we would address the possibility of supporting a unity government that would freeze the process (of austerity) … I answered that the country has no time to waste and we cannot examine any option that would prolong the recession,” Venizelos said.“The vast majority of the country wishes to remain in the euro,” he added. “And exit from the euro would result in mass poverty, a loss of value of property, income and prospects. Greece would lose many decades.”Tsipras met later with conservative New Democracy head Antonis Samaras, who came first in Sunday’s polls with 18.85 per cent of the vote and 108 seats in the 300-member parliament.Given that the Communist Party refuses to join any government and no parties are talking to the extreme right Golden Dawn, which won 21 seats, no coalition can be formed without Samaras.But the views between him and the radical left remain as wide apart as ever.All have said they want to avoid another round of elections, which will be inevitable if no coalition government can be formed.“The result of the elections produces two priorities: the need for stability, and a government solution so that the country avoids another election,” Venizelos said. “Prolonging the uncertainty will hurt the country’s standing, its economy and ultimately its most vulnerable citizens.”Venizelos said his meeting with Tsipras was friendly, but that no agreement was reached.“It was clear that in the current stage of this process we cannot reach a solution but that we must continue this effort. So the mandate I will receive tomorrow will have substance and importance,” he said. “I will receive the mandate and continue the effort because we have an obligation as a force of national responsibility to provide the country with a government and provide it with safety and prospects.” by News Staff Posted May 9, 2012 1:36 pm MDT read more

US grants Airbus Boeing a chance to sell airplanes to Iran

FILE — In this March 2, 2008 file photo, two passenger planes of Iran’s national air carrier, Iran Air, are parked at the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, Iran. Airbus announced Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2016, that the U.S. government has granted it a license allowing it to sell the first 17 planes involved in a landmark deal with Iran. Most Iranian planes were purchased before the 1979 Islamic Revolution that ousted Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and brought Islamists to power. (AP Photo/Vahid Salemi, File) DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – The U.S. government granted aviation giants Airbus and Boeing permission on Wednesday to sell aircraft to Iran following last year’s nuclear accord.European airplane manufacturer Airbus announced the license from the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control early Wednesday. Chicago-based Boeing followed with its own announcement later in the day.The approval clears the way for the two plane manufacturers to access one of the last untapped aviation markets in the world. Both companies have announced separate $25-billion deals to sell aircraft to airlines in the country, although analysts are skeptical that there is demand for so many jets or available financing.The deal would be the biggest for an American company since the 1979 Islamic Revolution and U.S. Embassy takeover.The announcements come as Iranian and U.S. leaders are in New York for the United Nations General Assembly and shows that the outgoing administration of President Barack Obama is honouring the economic terms of the nuclear pact.Though based abroad, Airbus needed the approval of the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control for the deal because at least 10 per cent of the manufacturer’s components are of American origin.Airbus applied for two licenses to cover its deal with Iran to ensure the fast delivery of some of the aircraft, Airbus spokesman Justin Dubon told The Associated Press. The license announced Wednesday covers the first 17 planes involved in the deal, which will be A320s and A330s, he said.Dubon said Airbus hoped to receive a second license allowing it to sell the remaining planes to Iran soon.Iran’s U.N. mission did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday. State television referred to an AP report on the sale.Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers, which limits its enrichment of uranium in exchange for the lifting of some international sanctions, specifically allowed for the purchase of aircraft and parts. That’s set off a race between airplane manufacturers for the newly opened market, home to 80 million people.In January, national carrier Iran Air signed agreements to buy 118 planes from Airbus, estimated to be worth some 22.8 billion euros ($25 billion). On Sunday, state TV reported that Asghar Fakhrieh Kashan, a deputy transportation minister, said Iran would cut the number of Airbus planes to 112.Base model A320s are listed at an average of $98 million, while A330s start at $231.5 million. That puts the value of the approved 17 aircraft in the first license around at least $1.8 billion and possibly much higher based on list prices, though buyers typically negotiate sizable discounts for bulk orders.Under Boeing’s deal, Iran Air will buy 80 aircraft with a total list price of $17.6 billion, with deliveries beginning in 2017 and running until 2025. Iran Air also will lease 29 new Boeing 737s. In a statement, Boeing spokesman Marc Sklar said “we have received that license and remain in talks with Iran Air” based on the memorandum of agreement reach in June.The Boeing deal has been criticized by American lawmakers over Iran’s “pernicious behaviour,” including launching ballistic missiles, firing rockets near U.S. warships in the strategic Strait of Hormuz and briefly detaining American sailors who strayed into its territorial waters.The U.S. presidential election could also have an effect on the sales. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has threatened to tear up the nuclear deal if elected this November.Most Iranian planes were purchased before the Islamic Revolution that ousted Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and brought Islamists to power. Out of Iran’s 250 commercial planes, 162 were flying in June, while the rest were grounded due to lack of spare parts.Iran Air, whose website lists 43 airplanes in its fleet, says it has direct flights to over 30 international destinations, including London.___Online:Airbus: www.airbus.comBoeing Co.: www.boeing.comIran Air: www.iranair.com___Associated Press writers Nasser Karimi in Tehran, Iran, Scott Mayerowitz in New York and Adam Schreck contributed to this report.___Follow Jon Gambrell on Twitter at www.twitter.com/jongambrellap.

Google Image Search update lets you upload an image and find its

first_imgGoogle hosted the “Inside Search” event yesterday in San Francisco, during which they rolled out a number of prototype features that they hope to add into their search applications in the near future. One of those new features is an update to Image Search that allows you to upload or link to an image and let Google find where you can locate that image on the Web.The feature is particularly useful if you have an image on your desktop and have forgotten where you downloaded it from, or you want to know what the actual source of the image really was. It’s also useful for art or downloaded images that you like, but you’re not sure where it’s from.Google didn’t invent this technology. A number of other sites already do similar things. TinEye, for example, offers a similar service and has a Firefox extension to allow you to quickly search using images you find on the Web. Google has also promised Firefox and Chrome extensions that will do the same thing.Google made no mention of TinEye in their presentation – they say the new features will be more like Google Goggles, only for the desktop instead of mobile. Desktop users will be able to upload images to Google and Google will spit out some information about the image uploaded. As the service evolves, more useful information will be provided as well as where you can find the image on the Web.The new reverse image search will be rolled into Image Search over the next few days. Google says that when a camera icon appears in your Image Search box, you’ll know that the feature is available to you.Read more at TechCrunchlast_img read more

The IMF has marked up its forecast for economic growth in The

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, March 8, 2018 – Nassau – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, the Hon. Peter Turnquest said in line with the brighter economic outlook globally and especially in the U.S., the International Monetary Fund has marked up its forecast for economic growth in The Bahamas.“Real growth in 2018 is now forecast at 2.5 per cent, up from 2.2 per cent at the time of the last Budget.  For 2019, the forecast calls for growth on the order of 2.2 per cent,” the DPM said during his Contribution to the 2017/18 Mid-Year Budget Debate in the House of Assembly, Wednesday, March 7, 2018.He said this outlook reflects projected modest growth in tourism sector output, due in part to the sustained improvement in key source markets and in light of the multi-billion Baha Mar resort becoming fully operational.  In addition, DPM Turnquest said construction activity should be supported by a number of varied-scale foreign investment projects in both the capital and the Family Islands.“In this environment, employment conditions are expected to continue to gradually improve while inflationary pressures should continue to be well contained over the near-term, as international oil prices remain relatively low.”He said as for monetary sector developments, the Central Bank expects continued high levels of bank liquidity to be a dominant feature.  “As well, credit conditions are likely to remain subdued, while bank arrears and non-performing loans should continue their downward trajectory, underpinned mainly by additional asset sales and ongoing loan recovery efforts.The DPM said further, banks are projected to stay highly capitalised, thereby mitigating any threats to financial sector stability.He also noted that developments in respect of external reserves are expected to depend heavily on factors such as the performance of foreign exchange earning sectors, international crude oil price developments and the Government’s financing activities.DPM Turnquest added, “However, external reserve indicators are likely to remain above international benchmarks during the year.   At the end of January, external reserves totalled $1,460.5 million, equivalent to 5.5 months of total merchandise imports and well above the benchmark of three months.” Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

As a GRAMMY-nominated persona of Donald Glover, time is precious when you have to compete with The Lion King, Star Wars and your TV work. Donald Glover Hints At New Childish Gambino Music Speaking of which, his hit comedy series “Atlanta” garnered Glover three Emmy nominations, as lead actor, writer and director. So what about finding time to record new music?According to the man himself, the challenge is keeping a “punk” freshness in his work. “As much as ‘Redbone’ is a punk song because it’s a gospel song that’s on the radio, I’m like there’s only so far you can go before you just are the radio,” he told BBC Radio 1, assuring listeners that Gambino has yet to be retired. “You still have a lot more time of calling me [Childish Gambino] if you want.”Of course, keeping it fresh is what has Glover surging worldwide, and he gave the creative atmosphere of London credit for spurring new ideas.”I’ve been working on that here,” he said. “You guys have been very instrumental in my music.

Eric Jewkes to become new Fairbanks police chief

first_imgFairbanks will get a new police chief next week. Last night the Fairbanks City Council unanimously endorsed Mayor Jim Matherly’s recommendation for Deputy Chief Eric Jewkes to become the city’s top cop. But, the council also vote down any immediate resolution to an ongoing police contract dispute.Listen NowMayor Jim Matherly underscored the difficulty in deciding between Deputy Police Chief Eric Jewkes and acting police Chief Brad Johnson for the top post. But he advanced Jewkes name to the council for approval. They obliged by unanimously ratifying the mayor’s choice. But before the vote, Jewkes faced questions from several council member. Valarie Therrien asked what he would do to increase the number of women and minority officers. Jewkes responded thata  woman joined the force that day.“I think we’ve been pretty robust in our minority recruitment,” Jewkes said. “And so I think it takes a community effort so that those groups – those female officers, those minority applicants – feel like this is someplace they can come and work.”Councilwoman Joy Huntington also urged Jewkes to maintain the positive community outreach initiatives his predecessor Randal Aragon set in place.  Council member Jerry Norum asked about police morale. Jewkes replied it was improving but there was still the question of the disputed police contract.On that score December 5, the council voted down two ordinances, one by Therrien and Norum that would have ratified the police union’s contract, and another that would have honored part of the contract, including a salary hike. Both were deemed too pricey and lacked the votes to advance.However, an ordinance by Joy Huntington to give police bonuses did earn unanimous support. Mayor Matherly said he too backed the initiative saying it would not bind future contract negotiations.“When I got elected, I really wanted to concentrate on mending some fences with the police department,” Matherly said. “But I do not take lightly, nor does it negate the fact, that the contract needs to be repaired. Mr. Jewkes said it pretty clearly when he was up here, and I take that to heart.”In the meantime the disputed contract has been appealed to the state supreme court, although a resolution to the case is expected to take months.last_img read more

Ranbaxy Posts Loss after Writeoffs on US Import Bans

first_imgDrugmaker Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd (RANB.NS), which has agreed to be acquired by Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd (SUN.NS) for $3.2 billion, posted a loss in the March quarter, hit by write-offs related to regulatory sanctions.A series of import bans by U.S. regulators on Ranbaxy’s plants, citing poor manufacturing quality, has hurt sales in the United States, its primary export market.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration in January banned the sale of drugs made with ingredients prepared at Ranbaxy’s Toansa plant in India after an inspection found the factory’s processes did not meet the FDA’s manufacturing standards.Ranbaxy, owned by Japan’s Daiichi Sankyo Ltd (4568.T), said on Friday it had made a provision of 629.5 million rupees ($10.5 million) in the quarter for inventory write-offs and other costs related to the ban.It also made a provision of about 700 million rupees for impairment of goodwill in subsidiaries and reduction in the value of an investment in an associate, the company said in a statement. It did not give details.As a result, Ranbaxy reported a net loss of 736.54 million rupees for January-March, compared with a profit of 1.26 billion rupees a year ago. The mean estimate of 22 analysts was for a profit of 958.7 million rupees, according to Thomson Reuters data.Net sales rose 1.2 percent to 24.4 billion rupees.Ranbaxy said it had responded to the FDA’s concerns related to the Toansa plant and that shipments from the facility were likely to be “resumed shortly”.The Toansa ban followed similar action at Ranbaxy’s three other India plants. That left its New Jersey subsidiary Ohm Laboratories Inc as its only permitted maker of drugs for a market that accounted for 32 percent of sales in the latest quarter.The company is working closely with regulatory agencies to address their concerns, Chief Executive Arun Sawhney said in a statement.Shares in Ranbaxy, valued at about $3.3 billion, ended down 1.3 percent at 463.55 rupees on Friday, while the Mumbai market rose 3 percent.($1 = 60.0050 rupees)last_img read more

Windows 10 Update KB3201845 DHCP issues

first_imgWindows 10 Update KB3201845 (DHCP issues) by Martin Brinkmann on December 10, 2016 in Windows – Last Update: July 05, 2017 – 54 commentsMicrosoft pushed out the new cumulative KB3201845 update for the Windows 10 release channel yesterday that delivers a range of fixes for the operating system.Note: It seems that the update is not the cause for the connectivity issues, as some users, including Günter Born, experienced the same issue on machines without the update.Update: Microsoft employee John Wink revealed that the issue was caused by a service crash that broke DHCP.A service crash that broke DHCP. The correct mitigation was/is a restart (not shutdown/reboot, but start – power – restart). Friday’s update mitigated by triggering such a restart, but today’s update has the actual fix.Reports are also coming in that the update is causing Internet connectivity issues for some users (DHCP issues). I experienced the issue first hand when my mother told me yesterday that she could not access the Internet at all on her Windows 10 laptop.I had to manually change the local IPv4 IP address for the network adapter to fix the issue. Uninstalling KB3201845 should have the same effect but I have not tried that yet.Update: Microsoft published a banner on the Windows 10 Update History page that provides a solution. According to it, you need to restart (not shut down) the PC to fix the issue.Question is, who is going to open the update history page before they install updates? (Thanks Woody)The update was released to Insider versions of Windows 10 in November but the issue was not reported, at least not in the numbers that it is reported right now.Windows 10 Update KB3201845Here are the direct download links for KB3201845KB3201845 32-bit versionKB3201845 64-bit versionThe update history for KB3201845 does not list any fixes or changes to Internet connectivity or networking in general.Improved the reliability of mobile device management (MDM) disenrollment, Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM), Peripheral Component Interface and PowerShell.Addressed issue that causes excessive battery drain if you have a Chinese Input Method Editor installed and use Windows Hello to log in.Addressed issue with OLE drag and drop that prevents users from downloading a SharePoint document library as a file.Addressed issue with Super Floppy-formatted fixed media devices that are not recognized by Windows 10 Anniversary Update or accessible in Windows Explorer.Addressed issue that causes the System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) client to fail installation when a device is re-imaged using the SCCM task sequence.Addressed issue that causes the loss of optional component (OC) state information, including all Hyper-V virtual machines, after upgrade.Addressed issue that causes Windows Explorer to display information that’s inconsistent with what’s stored on the Floppy disk.Addressed issue that, after connecting a shared CD/DVD-hosted drive with no media inserted, causes some of the commands, like DIR and NET USE, to hang.Addressed issue where customers cannot use directory cache sizes greater than 64 KB.Addressed issue where Windows Explorer sometimes does not prompt for credentials when a user logs on using a Microsoft account.Addressed additional issues with application compatibility and Internet ExplorerAs you can see, all fixes that have nothing to do with Internet connectivity.The timing of release is puzzling as well. Microsoft will release the Patch Tuesday update next Tuesday, and the fixes, at least what is listed on the update history page, don’t seem to warrant an early release.Anyway, since KB3201845 has been released early, it is at least easier to pinpoint the Internet connectivity issue to the update.If you don’t need any of the fixes, you may want to block the update from being installed for the time being until Microsoft releases an update that addresses the issue.SummaryArticle NameWindows 10 Update KB3201845DescriptionMicrosoft pushed out the new cumulative KB3201845 update for the Windows 10 release channel yesterday that delivers a range of fixes for the operating system.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
