Realistic solutions must form basis of Global Compact for migration – UN

The preparatory conference at UN Headquarters in New York, was the fifth and final hearing on the compact; with a focus on existing practices for safe, orderly and regular migration. The General Assembly is due to hold an intergovernmental conference with a view to adopting it later this year.At Monday’s session, entitled Migration – What’s Really Going On: Lessons from the field, Miroslav Lajčák, President of the General Assembly, recalled the impact of past discussions which had focused around topics such as such as people smuggling and trafficking; national and regional perspectives, and misinformation over migration.“They have allowed us to take a break from the politics – and focus, instead, on the realities,” he said.  “Migration affects all of society – so all of society is needed, to respond,” he stressed.While indicating that the needs and rights of migrants must be balanced with those of States and communities, he pointed out that migration is nothing new.“We have centuries of policies and practices…trials and errors…successes and failures to learn from,” he said.He spoke of the need for policies that enabled development, safeguarded human rights and ensured security, inviting all present to share ideas, solutions, experiences and opinions.“You are the reality checks; the sounding boards; the sources of information, as we head into the final stages of negotiation,” he concluded.Speaking next, Louise Arbour, Secretary-General of the Intergovernmental Conference on International Migration, painted a picture of migration as “highly time-bound and context specific,” saying that the Global Compact should allow for “sufficient flexibility to calibrate policies to continuously evolving context and reality.”  She flagged that many migrant workers face discrimination and exploitative working conditions, despite most empirical evidence suggesting that immigrants do not depress wages and living standards of native workers.“Tailor made in-context specific solutions are required,” she stressed. Adding, “The Compact should provide a compendium of desirable initiatives, anchored in human rights in response to the interest and the circumstances of all concerned.”In his remarks, William Lacy Swing, Director General of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), highlighted the importance of successful stakeholder partnerships.He said the Global Forum on Migration and Development, offered a clear structure for policy-makers, practitioners, migrant organizations and the private sector, among others.He credited city mayors with developing tailor-made solutions to respond to migrants’ needs, saying “Local authorities are often the place where migrants can have their demands heard.”Finally, he explained how private sector partnerships have solidified many migrants’ place in local labour markets.“The sovereignty of States and multi-stakeholder engagement are not inconsistent and should not be seen as mutually exclusive,” he said. “In fact, multi-stakeholder partnerships can strengthen State sovereignty,” he added. read more

Schoolboy 15 had semiautomatic pistol fully loaded and ready for use under

first_imgSchoolboy (15) had semi-automatic pistol ‘fully loaded and ready for use’ under his bed, court hears The boy has been accused of unlawful possession of a Walther PPQ 9mm semi-automatic pistol. Apr 24th 2019, 5:13 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article By Tom Tuite Wednesday 24 Apr 2019, 5:13 PM No Comments 39,133 Views Share Tweet Email Image: PA Images Short URL A SEMI-AUTOMATIC handgun was “fully loaded and ready for use” when it was found hidden under the bed of a 15-year-old Dublin schoolboy, a court heard today.The boy, who cannot be named because he is a minor, appeared at the Dublin Children’s Court to face a preliminary hearing to determine his trial venue.He faces two charges under the Firearms Act.The boy, now aged 16, was accused of unlawful possession of a Walther PPQ 9mm semi-automatic pistol and 11 rounds of 9mm ammunition at his north Dublin home on 3 December 2018. The case resumes in May when a ruling on his trial venue will be made.In an outline of the prosecution evidence, Garda Desmond McNally told Judge Conal Gibbons a warrant was obtained to search the boy’s home on suspicion of drug dealing.The boy was there with other siblings.Garda McNally said the weapon was found under the teen’s bed.He agreed with prosecution solicitor Michael Durkan that there was ammunition was in the gun. “Yes, the firearm was fully loaded and ready for use,” he said.He told Judge Gibbons the Walther PPQ was a semi-automatic pistol, and “when you press the trigger once in this gun, it keeps firing”.Garda McNally said the teen was arrested and detained at Clontarf Garda station where he made full admissions.Defence counsel Beatrice Vance (instructed by solicitor Michael French) put it to the garda that when the boy’s home was entered, the teen very quickly said he had something to show him.She said the boy directed gardaí to where he had put the gun, under his bed.Garda McNally said that was correct and the teen did not resist.The garda also told the court he believed the boy was fully aware of the danger involved.He agreed with the barrister that the boy told gardaí he had been put under pressure to take the gun and “did not feel like he had any options”. The teen was afraid to disclose who gave him the gun. He also indicated he was relieved when gardaí came.The Director of Public Prosecutions had recommended the boy should be tried in the Circuit Court, which has tougher sentencing powers.The Children’s Court, however, has the power to accept jurisdiction for serious cases by taking into consideration the age and level of maturity of the accused as well as any other relevant information. This is provided for under Section 75 of the Children Act.The teen was accompanied to court by his mother and a youth worker from a bail support scheme. He only spoke once during the hearing to confirm his school year.‘Under pressure’Pleading for the the case to be kept in the Children’s Court, counsel asked the judge to note the boy was aged 15 at the time, and his reaction when gardaí arrived at his home.Ms Vance said the boy was in a vulnerable position and was under pressure.He was still going to school, involved in sports and had no other matters before the court, the judge was told.Describing the gun seizure as “one of the gravest offences a person can be charged with”, Judge Gibbons deferred ruling on the trial venue issue.He said he expected to be given more background information.The court needed to know about the boy’s education and whether there were any psychological reports available, he said.As a condition of bail the boy be must reside at his home address and obey a 10pm-6am curfew. He was warned today that he had to abide by these bail terms.The teen was remanded to appear again next month.Comments are off for legal reasons Image: PA Images https://jrnl.ie/4605374 last_img read more

first_imgDes images 3D des tissus pour repérer et traiter le cancerUn dépistage plus précoce du cancer serait possible grâce à une nouvelle technique d’imagerie en 3D. Dans leur publication du American Journal of Pathology, ils décrivent leur méthode de microscopie digitale.Des scientifiques de l’Université de Leeds ont créé une nouvelle méthode d’imagerie permettant de scanner des tissus pour pouvoir les examiner sous toutes les coutures sur un ordinateur.Contrairement aux quelques autres tentatives d’imagerie 3D, elle est en haute résolution ce qui permettra de s’en servir en situation réelle.

Lutheran churches provide shelter in winter

first_imgIt’s the middle of winter, so St. Paul and St. Andrew Lutheran churches open their doors each night to house homeless people, as they have every winter for 15 years. A few other local churches shelter people on especially miserable nights. Two of those churches are also Lutheran.Yet another Lutheran church has been instrumental in opening a severe-weather shelter at the Washougal Community Center. While people of many faiths and no faith are involved in serving the homeless, particularly through the Winter Hospitality Overflow shelter program, the number of local Lutheran churches offering their buildings stands out.Being a good neighbor and sharing with them is a tenet of the Lutheran faith.“Sometimes what keeps people from sharing is a fear that there isn’t enough to go around,” said Charlene Welch. “In our Lutheran tradition, we strive to follow the belief that we have all we need because it comes from God. Therefore, we are free to share.”Welch belongs to Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in Vancouver. She also works at the local Council for the Homeless, which has been training churches and volunteers how to run overnight shelters. The agency fields calls from people seeking shelter and decides when the weather is bad enough to necessitate adding more beds. Living Hope Church, a nondenominational Christian church, and Beautiful Savior Lutheran are used most often.There have been 17 times this winter when severe weather was called. Last winter, there were 56 severe-weather days.‘Realm of God’s grace’Despite its small size — perhaps 55 people attend Sunday services — the Rev. Adrienne Strehlow’s church voted to become a severe weather shelter.last_img read more

Virgin seeks personal assistant to move to Necker Island

first_imgSomething for the weekend: Employees looking to swap dreary British weather for a nine-to-five that incorporates more sun, sea and sand should check out the latest recruitment drive from international investment group Virgin, which is looking for a new personal assistant to work on Necker Island, a private island in the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean.Although applicants may well be rubbing their hands together at the glamourous location of the role, the job posting on LinkedIn warns that the assistant will be kept on their toes performing administrative duties across two busy offices. This will include working with Necker Island’s general manager as well as completing administrative tasks for Virgin founder Richard Branson’s office. Key duties candidates will be required to undertake include diary and email management, general correspondence, filing and archiving, booking travel and providing cover for Branson’s personal assistant.The advert also states that personality is just as important as skills and experience. It reads: “We are, of course, looking for someone with fantastic admin and organisational skills as well as practical experience in a busy office. But your personality is just as important. As well as being a top-notch administrator, we’re also looking for someone who is self-motivated, outgoing and enthusiastic who can balance this with the essential need for discretion and confidentiality. Does this sound like you?”Admin hotshots who wish to apply for the role need to submit both their CV and a two-minute video explaining why they want the job, interesting facts about themselves and highlighting any unique skills and experience that would make them the ideal candidate to be Necker Island’s newest resident.Here at Employee Benefits, we love the idea of working on our very own private island. We imagine the peacefulness of our very own beach would certainly counterbalance the stress of editorial deadlines…last_img read more

2nd suspect identified in March road rage incident caught on camera

first_imgFORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) – Authorities have identified a second suspect who, they said, was captured on cellphone video beating a woman during a road rage incident.According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, 27-year-old Julie Sam is one of the women seen on video beating 26-year-old Mikaela Barboza in March during a road rage argument. Deputies said they had obtained a warrant on Thursday for Sam’s arrest for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.“I’m still kind of nervous to even drive,” said Barboza.BSO said Sam was last seen driving a 2018 Kia Sorrento rental car with Georgia tag RKR4868. “I’m just relieved that now at least one of the suspects is finally off the streets,” said Barboza.“She didn’t have a problem being seen when she was attacking the victim, but now she seems to be hiding,” said BSO spokesperson Veda Coleman-Wright.The road rage incident occurred on March 22, when Barboza said she accidentally cut off a woman while driving down U.S. 441. She started recording video on her cellphone when two vehicles blocked her at a Lauderdale Lakes shopping plaza.Deputies said cameras captured Sam and Denis allegedly beating Barboza. Video showed the women using baseball bats to hit the victim.Barboza suffered a broken nose, as well as bruises and lacerations in the attack. “Seven stitches on my forehead,” she said.The victim acknowledged the attack could have been worse if a couple of good Samaritans had not intervened.Barboza said she’s concerned someone could display such violent behavior in front of their child. “It’s just really sad for me to see a parent do that, especially right in front of their kid, because it’s like, how could you do that in front of your kid and let them see something that traumatic?” she said. This is Julie Sam. She’s wanted for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon for a March road rage incident.

Anchorage NAACP elects new president

first_imgThe Anchorage Branch of the NAACP elected a new president last week – Kevin McGee.Listen NowMcGee said the NAACP is focused on more than just the rights of African-Americans; it is building relationships with other community organizations to stand up for the rights for all Alaskans.“We work better as a team within the entire community helping address each others’ issues to see if they can improve for the benefit of everybody,” he said during a phone interview.The election of Donald Trump has emboldened hate groups, McGee said, and puts people’s civil rights at risk.“Why are we allowing this country to turn itself — to do a 180 degree turn — and act like there is nothing wrong with this?” he said.Protecting people’s civil rights includes focusing on environmental justice issues as well, he said, because communities of color are often the most impacted by climate change and pollution. The NAACP is working with state and community groups to develop green energy options in Anchorage. They’re also working with the school district to improve math and reading scores.last_img read more

Cypriot and bases authorities slammed by antipoaching NGOs

first_imgSome 430 wild birds from 25 different species were found trapped or killed, and more than 1,800 limesticks, were seized during the Spring Bird Protection Camp (BPC) that took place between March and May in Cyprus, it was announced on Thursday.According to a report by the Committee Against Bird Slaughter (CABS) and of the Pro Biodiversity Foundation (SPA – Stiftung Pro Artenvielfalt) which organised a Spring Bird Protection Camp(BPC) in Cyprus, despite the big impact of spring trapping, the authorities of the Republic of Cyprus and British bases “are not taking this issue seriously and are not implementing the Laws for the Protection of Wild Birds”.During the camp, that took place between March 25 and May 7, around a dozen activists from six countries monitored bird trapping activity in the south-eastern part of the island; in the Famagusta and Larnaca districts. This was their 10th camp in Cyprus.CABS and SPA organise Bird Protection Camps in Cyprus three times per year; in spring, autumn and winter to prevent illegal, non-selective and large-scale trapping, killing and trade of migratory birds passing through Cyprus.In total, activists removed 1,834 limesticks, 19 mist nets and 10 electronic bird callers, and found trapped or killed 430 wild protected birds belonging to 25 different species, the majority of which were Lesser whitethroats and Blackcaps. Other species found were Common Nightingales, Willow Warblers, and Wrynecks.It added that during the camp, 282 known trapping sites were investigated and 62 were found to be active. “The percentage of active trapping sites is the second lowest ever recorded and 6.1 percent lower as in previous spring”. The majority of all detected active sites – 56 – were found in the Famagusta district. The number of seized limesticks, it said, is similar as the previous spring while the number of seized nets was lower than in spring 2016.The activists cooperated with Cypriot and bases (SBA) police, the Anti-Poaching Squad (APS) and game wardens . Cooperation with law enforcement units this spring however, they said, “was the worst in the last years”.“We reported 32 active trapping sites to them and they investigated 14 of them. Enforcement officers have caught and prosecuted trappers only at six sites reported by our teams. The percentage of investigated trapping sites is the lowest ever recorded at Spring BPCs and the number of prosecutions lowest since 2012,” it said.With less joint operations carried out together with enforcement officers as in previous years and with less hours of cooperation per day, they said, “we had the chance to report only 32 out of the 62 detected active trapping sites”.Without their interventions, activists said, all enforcement agencies in the Republic of Cyprus would have achieved only one prosecution on their own. Especially disappointing, they said, was the cooperation with game wardens as they investigated only one out of eight reported cases and with APS officers, who investigated only five of the 15 reported sites. “Worrying is also the overall low number of prosecutions made for reported cases. All together only six prosecutions for bird trapping were made during the Spring Camp, this is much less than previous spring, when 13 prosecutions were made”.The group said that this was not the first season to observe lack of response from game wardens for reported trapping cases.According to the report, Cyprus lies on one of the key migratory routes that birds use during their journey between Europe and Africa, with around 100 million birds visiting the island every spring and autumn. The island, it said, is also an important wintering place for birds which migrate to Cyprus to avoid harsh winter conditions in Europe. Cyprus however, the report said, is one of the main hotspots of illegal bird killing in the Mediterranean. It is estimated that more than 2 million migrating birds get caught and killed in illegal traps every year in Cyprus, while trapping has affected a total of 153 recorded wild bird species, of which 78 are threatened and listed on Annex 1 of the EU Birds Directive.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Public urged to avoid beaches in bases areas after sharp objects found

If you are in the area and you find any such equipment, please do not touch it, instead call 1443,” it said.“The safety of the public remains a top priority for the bases.”A bases spokesman said later they did not have any further information to offer.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoAudie Murphy RanchGet more home without moving away from Southern CaliforniaAudie Murphy RanchUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
