Demand for aid to the homeless is exceeding supply in Zimbabwe UNICEF

“We have been working around the clock for the better part of two months and are improving the situation for tens of thousands, but such is the gravity of the situation that we are asking the international community to support the people of Zimbabwe,” UNICEF Representative in Zimbabwe Festo Kavishe said.UNICEF said the Porta Farm community felt the full force of the Operation Murambatsvina (Restore Order) demolitions during the fact-finding visit of Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Envoy for the evictions, UN-HABITAT Executive Director Anna Tibaijuka, three weeks ago.Suddenly made homeless, an estimated 4,000 people fled from Porta Farm to either their rural homes, or a government transit camp called Caledonia Farm, it said, but Caledonia Farm was soon closed.Ms. Tibaijuka issued her report and appeal last Friday, as Mr. Annan condemned the demolition.Any family that tried to rebuild on the ruins of Porta Farm this week witnessed the return of the bulldozers, it said.In response to pleas from tens of thousands across Zimbabwe, UNICEF is providing blankets and plastic sheeting as protection from the southern African country’s winter winds. The organization is also distributing 90,000 litres of water a day, providing sanitation facilities and supporting chronically ill people with supplies for home-based care.UNICEF said it is continuing to step up its operations throughout the country by helping to organize additional mobile medical clinics and planning the further distribution of blankets and shelter materials for children and their families.The forced evictions of hundreds of thousands of people, including 220,000 children, have worsened the already dire situation in a country that has the world’s fourth-highest rate of HIV prevalence and is grappling with fuel shortages, a growing food emergency, declining economic performance and the sharpest rises in child mortality in the world, it said.After conducting an assessment of Zimbabwe’s current needs, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said the two greatest requirements were shelter and food. The UN and its partners would decide whether to expand existing programmes, or to issue a new appeal for assistance, it said. read more

Hawaii bill would ban licenses for some foreign fishermen

HONOLULU, Hawaii – Hawaii lawmakers are considering a proposal with the potential to cripple the state’s commercial fishing industry after an Associated Press investigation found foreign fishermen confined to boats and living in subpar conditions.A 2016 AP investigation found that some fishermen earned less than $1 an hour and worked without most basic labour protections while catching premium seafood. The boats often have crews of fishermen from Southeast Asia and Pacific Island nations, and the men are restricted to their vessels when docked in Honolulu because they lack proper documentation to enter the U.S.A bill in the Hawaii Legislature aims to change rules for how fishing licenses are issued to foreign crew members that make up the majority of the state’s commercial fleet.Now, boat owners or captains bring foreign crew members’ passports and customs documents to a state agency to get their licenses — without the fishermen present. A federal legal loophole allows foreign fishermen to work off the coast of Hawaii, but they are technically not allowed to enter the country.The bill would require anyone seeking a commercial fishing license in Hawaii to appear in person. State Sen. Karl Rhoads says he wants to change the law so people who are not permitted to enter the U.S. cannot get a license to fish on American-flagged boats sailing from Honolulu.“They just feel like the underdogs to me, and I don’t like to see people taken advantage of,” he said.Despite the federal loophole, state laws require anyone applying for a fishing license to be “lawfully admitted” to the country.U.S. Customs and Border Protection says these men are banned, raising questions about whether the state has been violating its own law for years by allowing the foreign workers to catch and sell seafood in Hawaii.“As the state, we don’t have a lot of jurisdiction over it, and this is a way to legitimately insert ourselves into the process, because we do require a license,” Rhoads said.The Hawaii Longline Association opposed the bill, saying the industry is already regulated and additional requirements are unnecessary.“It could lead to the use of no foreign crew in the fishery, which would be very devastating,” said Jim Cook, a member of the association’s board of directors. “It would be similar to having no immigrant people in agriculture in Hawaii or any other part of the United States.”Two Hawaii Senate committees discussed the proposal Wednesday. A religious group that works with foreign fishermen opposed the bill saying the fishermen rely on the money they earn in the U.S. But Kathryn Xian who works with trafficking victims said some fishermen are treated better than others, and the industry cannot be relied upon to self-regulate.The committee postponed making a decision until next week.Typically, when commercial fishing boats arrive in Honolulu, they are met by federal customs agents who ban foreign workers from entering the country by stamping “refused” on their landing permits.But a written opinion by Hawaii Attorney General Douglas Chin said the state Department of Land and Natural Resources provides the landing permits as proof the fishermen are “lawfully admitted.”Rhoads says the form allows someone to land but does not allow lawful entry as required for a license.“Right now, it just feels like lots of grey area,” Rhoads said. “I think when there are grey areas, it’s easier to take advantage of people.”Cook, of the fishing industry group, suggested that the fishermen who are refused entry could be granted “parole” to go to the office to apply for their licenses.Federal customs officials referred AP to federal immigration law that says parole can be given on a case-by-case basis for “urgent humanitarian reasons” or “significant public benefit.”Foreign fishermen usually get parole only when they have a medical emergency or they are being escorted to the airport to leave the country.But Cook said he believes there is also a parole category for ship business. Federal officials did not immediately respond to a request for clarification on that possibility.___Associated Press Writers Caleb Jones, Margie Mason and Martha Mendoza contributed to this report.

Baseball Purdue jumps on Ohio State early to win game 61 and

Ohio State senior outfielder Shea Murray stands in the box against Purdue on April 1, 2017 at Bill Davis Stadium. Credit: Edward Sutelan | Lantern reporterThe Ohio State baseball team was coming off their most dominating win of the season and first Big Ten win in a 13-2 victory over Purdue after scoring nine runs in the first four innings.But the tables turned on Saturday as the Boilermakers pounded out six runs in the first four innings and held on to that early lead to win, 6-1.Purdue put its leadoff hitter aboard in each of those innings and every time, that runner came around to score. The inability to keep the leadoff batter off base was a problem for the Buckeyes, said OSU coach Greg Beals, and one that cost them the game.“They got the leadoff guy on the first four innings. Two of them, we let them on base freely,” Beals said. “They were hit batsmen or a walk. We ended up having eight of those total for the night. Didn’t pitch the ball nearly as cleanly as we needed to be successful.”Taking their first lead of the series, the Boilermakers’ leadoff hitter reached base on a first-pitch hit-by-pitch and later came around to score on a groundout to the shortstop. A leadoff double and sacrifice bunt put a runner on third for freshman third baseman Mike Madej who punched a single through the left side of the infield to bring the score to 2-0. Junior right fielder Alec Olund lined a triple into the right field corner, scoring Madej from second. Olund scored later in the inning on a groundout, increasing his team’s lead to four runs.The Boilermakers again scored runs on groundouts, one in both the third and fourth innings to raise the score to 6-0.Feltner was able to keep the leadoff batter from reaching first base and scoring for the first time all night in the top of the fifth inning. Sophomore left fielder Nick Dalesandro grounded out to Feltner, who stared down Dalesandro after he fielded the ball.“There was no words said by Feltner. He stared him down,” Beals said. “I don’t like it, but it’s that fine line between you want your guys to have some competitive juice, but you want to make sure they’re controlling it properly and using it properly.”Beals said that emotions just got the better of him, but that they had a discussion and cleared up the situation.“We talked about it, we addressed it and he knows his emotions got away from him a little bit there,” Beals said.With one out in the bottom of the fifth inning, the Buckeyes strung together three straight hits, capped off by an RBI double from redshirt senior right fielder Shea Murray that brought the score to 6-1.Murray finished the game with three of the Buckeyes’ eight hits and both the team’s doubles. It was the first career multi-hit game for the pitcher-turned-outfielder.“I had runners on first and third, on the corners, and my thought process there was just trying to hit something far and deep and I kind of got out in front of it and took it down the line,” Murray said.Making the transition from pitcher to outfielder for Murray has taken some time to reach a point where he feels completely comfortable with his game, but he said he has really been feeling more confident both in the field and at the plate.“As far as defensively, I feel really comfortable. That’s something that you can get thousands of reps in over the course of time off fungos, off intersquad games and stuff,” Murray said. “I think I’m starting to feel a lot more comfortable at the plate. I think a lot of comfort at the plate comes from confidence. So a game like this obviously helps out a lot towards the confidence side of it.”The Boilermakers were provided with a strong performance from sophomore starting pitcher Gareth Stroh. Though he entered the game with a 6.83 ERA, he allowed just one run to cross in 7.2 innings. OSU mustered only six hits, one extra base hit and no walks, while he struck out two.Beals was impressed by the outing of Stroh and credited the Boilermakers’ starter with putting a lot of movement on his fastball.“He’s got a little bit of angle and deception on that fastball. Kinda that typical lefty that’s got some left-handed deception to it,” Beals said. “A little bit disappointed in our inability to get things going a little earlier off of him. Throwing a lot of fastballs to us, I thought we would make an adjustment the second time through the lineup.”Redshirt senior starting pitcher Jake Post was again unavailable to start Saturday, but Beals confirmed he will be starting on Sunday.“Jake Post is going to take the start tomorrow. Jake’s continued to get better throughout the week,” Beals said. “He tweaked the back a little bit — kind of old-man back — and he’s been able to progressively get better.”Despite the injury, Post has been eager to get back out on the mound in his senior year, Beals said.“He’s a senior and it’s going to be a big game for us,” he said. “We need to win this home series and he wants the ball so we’re going to give it to him.”Post will deliver the first pitch of Sunday’s game at 1 p.m. as OSU looks to take the rubber match against Purdue. read more

Introducing the Robit Evolution bit series

first_imgThe 30-year history of Robit has only seen one thing constant – the ever-increasing need for the connection between hammer and rock to endure more severe forces. In recent years, top hammer performance development has not only been linear but exponential, as maximum impact powers in eg tunnelling and drifting applications rise above 40 kW and impact frequencies steadily reach beyond 100 Hz.The Robit Button Bits, now used across the globe in a vast variety of rock formations, have witnessed masses of improvements during the journey. “We’ve listened to our most experienced customers working in the toughest conditions, tested again and again, failed and succeeded, tweaked and reinvented, all the time working on what matters most – getting drilling right, every time.”“The Evolution bit series is the result of a systematic approach towards crafting the world’s best button bits. Our level of sophistication is growing, trial and error has ages ago been surpassed by simulation and analytics based development. We know how our materials behave, how rock fractures, how to harness the immense forces traveling within the drill string. The best part of this is the quantifiability, the simple microstructure that makes itself visible after asking so many questions. We have the answers to where the Evolution performance comes from and what it means to your drilling process.”The Evolution series’ scope of improvements share multiple aspects across the size range, drawing from the simulation and analytics based approach exemplified by advanced fluid dynamic simulation being used among other tools. “In the small end, development focused especially on the specific needs of high power and high frequency drilling in tunneling and drifting applications. Multiple model approaches were taken, with the boldest design boasting just six extra-large buttons in a 48 mm bit. All variants were extensively tested with our customers and set against conventional hard rock bits. In the end the best results were gleaned from modifications and optimisation to face design, but particularly from increasing both gauge and face button numbers as well as increasing the number of flushing holes.”The test results of the Evolution bit in hard Scandinavian granite were very impressive, with grinding intervals up to 60% longer and lifetime 20% higher compared to conventional hard rock button bits. In the medium to large sizes, significant performance strides were taken by diving deep into flushing properties. “Here in particular, the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations proved their strong added value as they drove the pre-test phase for fast finding of optimal solutions and truly significant impacts.”Robit says that the 76 mm Retrac button bit superbly exemplifies the new design aspects. “The Retrac body itself has the signature Robit curving grooves and the sleek geometry flows through to the new face design. The simulations clearly show that the new model isn’t just easy on the eye. The flow pattern is more even, which reduces bit erosion. The pressure distribution is more uniform, and the smoother side channels along larger main grooves increase airflow ensuring efficient flushing. Dead-space across the face is significantly cut by introducing an extra flushing hole in the middle, clearing the center area better of cuttings.”“All in all, field tests confirmed what the technical simulation background work had already proven. Our partner drillers were happy with the excellent performance and noted better flushing and longer grinding intervals. Across sizes, the Evolution designs have systematically excelled. The 102 mm bits were tested in extremely hard and abrasive rock formations in Pennsylvania, USA, where we had been facing a common challenge with a customer to find the perfect bit for those conditions. The new formula allowed us to out-perform competition and more than double our achieved meters compared to our previous model.”last_img read more

Dautres soutiens de WikiLeaks arrêtés

first_imgD’autres soutiens de WikiLeaks arrêtésCinq jeunes hommes ont été arrêtés hier matin en Angleterre pour leur action de soutien au fondateur de WikiLeaks, Julian Assange. Les autorités britanniques ont procédé hier matin à l’interpellation de cinq jeunes hommes, âgés de 15 à 26 ans, soupçonnés d’appartenir au réseau “Anonymous”. Les membres de ce groupe, qui s’est juré de défendre le site WikiLeaks -dont le fondateur Julian Assange est toujours assigné à résidence en Angleterre-, sont soupçonnés d’avoir mené des attaques informatiques par déni de service distribué (DDoS) au nom de cette cause. Depuis octobre dernier, ils ont en effet lancé l’opération Payback, qui consiste en la paralysie de sites tels que PayPal, Mastercard et Visa ou encore Amazon, qui avaient boycotté WikiLeaks. Ces arrestations font suite à celle d’un jeune auvergnat de 15 ans, également membre présumé du réseau “Anonymous”. Par ailleurs, le FBI participe également à cette enquête et a procédé à une quarantaine de perquisitions. S’ils sont reconnus coupables d’abus dans le domaine informatique, les cinq hackers anglais pourraient écoper d’une peine de 10 ans de prison et de 5.000 livres d’amende (5.786 euros).Le 28 janvier 2011 à 12:13 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Cowlitz tribe objects to St Helens dam plan

first_imgLONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) — The Cowlitz Indian tribe is objecting to a Corps of Engineers proposal to raise a sediment retention dam on the Toutle River by 10 feet.The tribe says the longer-range plan to raise the spillway 30 feet could hurt chances for salmon and steelhead in the upper watershed.The Daily News reports (http://is.gd/ro1YFR) this is the first time the tribe has opposed work to control sediments from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens.The corps says the volcanic silt is washing downstream and slowly raising the riverbed — increasing the risk of flooding in the Cowlitz River.The tribe wants an environmental impact statement that would postpone work on the sediment dam for at least a year.last_img read more

Not voting for Congress on EVM will give you electric shock says

first_imgA seasoned Congress leader from Chhattisgarh, Kawasi LakhmaTwitter/ANIA Congress MLA from Chhattisgarh, Kawasi Lakhma, stoked a controversy when he allegedly threatened voters saying those who press any other button other than the first button on the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) will get an electric shock. The minister for excise, commerce and industries in Chhattisgarh made these comments at an election rally in the state’s Kanker district on Wednesday, April 17.Asking people to vote for the Congress candidate, the minister stated, “You have to press the first button to vote. If you press the second button, you will get an “electric shock”. The third button will also give you one.” The Election Commission has reportedly issued him a notice seeking an explanation for his statement.Kawasi Lakhma’s bizarre comment came 24 hours before the second phase of voting for the Lok Saha election 2019. The state of Chhattisgarh will go to polls on Thursday, April 18, as part of the second phase of the national elections. Results of the Lok Sabha election 2019 will be declared on May 23.Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator from Fatehpura, Ramesh Katara, stoked a controversy when he allegedly threatened voters saying those who fail to vote for the saffron party will be identified and won’t be given jobs.2019’s BIZARRE STATEMENTSA BJP legislator from Fatehpura, Ramesh Katara, allegedly said that those who fail to vote for the saffron party will be identified and won’t be given jobs.

Saudiled allies extend Qatar deadline by 48hour

first_imgA man looks at his phone on the corniche of the Qatari capital Doha on July 2, 2017. AFPSaudi Arabia and its allies said early Monday they had decided to extend by 48 hours the deadline for Qatar to accept their list of demands to lift a de facto blockade.With the deadline expiring at midnight Sunday, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt agreed to give Doha an extension to respond positively to their demands.The move came after a request by the Kuwaiti emir who is acting as mediator in the Gulf crisis, according to a joint statement issued by the official Saudi SPA news agency.The Kuwaiti government had requested the extension following Qatar’s announcement that it was due to hand over its response to the emir, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, on Monday.Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt announced on June 5 they were severing ties with their Gulf neighbour, sparking the worst diplomatic crisis to hit the region in decades.They accused Doha of supporting extremism and of being too close to regional arch-rival Iran, which Qatar has strongly denied. Doha : A general view taken on July 2, 2017 shows the corniche of the Qatari capital Doha. AFP On June 22 they presented a list of 13 demands and gave Doha 10 days to comply.Riyadh’s demands include ending Doha’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood, the closure of Al-Jazeera television, a downgrade of diplomatic ties with Iran and the shutdown of a Turkish military base in the emirate.The four countries indicated in their statement that they would study and evaluate Qatar’s response before delivering their own reply to Kuwait.Doha has so far indicated that it rejects the demands.”The list of demands is made to be rejected,” Qatar’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani said Saturday in Rome.”The state of Qatar… is rejecting it as a principle,” he said, adding: “We are willing to engage in providing the proper conditions for further dialogue.”last_img read more

Venezuela charges opposition leader sparking protests

first_imgRelated posts:Showdown looms for Venezuela, as protest leader Leopoldo López vows new march Venezuelan opposition spurns government crisis talks Venezuela looks set to lock away prominent opposition leader Leopoldo López Fugitive Venezuelan opposition leader surrenders at rally CARACAS, Venezuela – Venezuela’s attorney general formally charged jailed opposition leader Leopoldo López on Friday over anti-government protests that have roiled the country for two months, triggering fresh demonstrations in Caracas.The Harvard-educated economist has been held in a military prison since his Feb. 18 arrest in the midst of an opposition protest rally against leftist President Nicolás Maduro, who has faced near-daily demonstrations since early February.Thirty-nine people have died in clashes between security forces and protesters angered by soaring crime, high inflation and shortages of essential goods.Attorney General Luis Ortega Díaz told a press conference that formal charges were brought against López, leader of the Popular Will party, accusing him of inciting violence, arson, damage to property and conspiracy.The government had until Saturday — 45 days from López’s arrest — to bring the charges or release him.The government action stems from López’s public support for the student-led street protests that have rocked the country since they began Feb. 4 in the western city of San Cristobal and spread to several other major cities, including the capital Caracas.López and some other opposition leaders are advocates of a strategy dubbed “the exit,” aimed at pressuring Maduro — the handpicked successor to late socialist icon Hugo Chávez — to resign.Hours after the attorney general’s announcement, about 3,000 demonstrators, most of them students, hit the streets in the east of Caracas demanding López be freed.Under the slogan “Free Leopoldo,” some were dressed in white, a symbol of peace, while others carried the flag of Venezuela.One young man, who wore a homemade gas mask in anticipation of security forces firing tear gas to disperse the rally, said: “We have no weapons, just stones.”Ernesto Palacios, a Popular Will activist, told AFP: “As a sign of respect, the government should release Leopoldo López and political prisoners.”Read more Venezuela stories by clicking on the hashtag #Bolivarian Revolution Facebook Commentslast_img read more
