Sudan Clashes in North Darfur prompt humanitarian warning from UN mission

In a news update from Khartoum, the Mission said recent clashes between rebel groups and Government forces and allied militias, as well as the increased presence of Janjaweed militia and other armed movements, have destabilized the already volatile situation.UNMIS added that UN humanitarian agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) active in North Darfur will have to seriously curtail their operations – often the only support that the region’s internally displaced persons (IDPs) have – if the security situation continues to deteriorate.The clashes in and around El Fasher follow a reported series of attacks by Government forces and an allied militia on a North Darfur village on Friday and Saturday that culminated in the burning of the homes and the looting of the residents’ livestock.More than 200,000 people are estimated to have been killed and another 2 million forced to flee their homes because of fighting across Darfur, a vast and impoverished region on Sudan’s western flank, since 2003.Last week the African Union (AU) Peace and Security Council agree to extend the mandate of its peace mission to Darfur, known as AMIS, by six months until the end of June next year.That extension was endorsed several weeks after participants at a meeting in Addis Ababa – including the UN, the AU and the Sudanese Government – agreed to a three-phase process of enhanced UN support to AMIS, culminating in a hybrid UN-AU peacekeeping operation taking over in Darfur.Today the Security Council also received a briefing from Dimitriy Titov, Director of the Africa Division in the UN Department for Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO), on the situation along the volatile Sudanese-Chadian border.Meanwhile, in Geneva the Human Rights Council announced today that it will hold a special session on the situation in Darfur next Tuesday. The special session is being convened after a request from Finland and has been signed by 33 of the Council’s 47 Member States. Secretary-General Kofi Annan has also issued a strong call for a special session on Darfur. read more

Trumps beauty pageant woes mount with more TV dropouts over his remarks

by Frazier Moore, The Associated Press Posted Jun 30, 2015 1:15 pm MDT Last Updated Jun 30, 2015 at 8:50 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – Fallout from outspoken Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s remarks about immigrants from Mexico continued to dog him Tuesday as a TV company backed by Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim said it was scrapping a project in development with him and Mexico announced it won’t be sending a contestant to the Miss Universe contest, which he partly owns.Meanwhile, the backlash threatened to extend beyond Trump’s media interests.Ora TV became the latest company to cut ties with Trump over remarks he made in his recent presidential campaign kickoff speech, when he declared that some Mexican immigrants bring drugs and crime to the U.S. and are rapists.The company did not give any details about the project it had been developing with Trump. Slim holds a majority interest in Ora TV, which produces shows including “Larry King Now” and “Off the Grid with Jesse Ventura.”And a day after Televisa, the Mexican TV network that airs Miss Universe, said there would be no telecast for the next contest, Miss Mexico pageant director Lupita Jones said Mexico would boycott Miss Universe. She said Trump damaged the pageant and its tradition of convening countries for an event that showcases “friendship, unity and breaking down cultural barriers.”NBC and Spanish-language network Univision previously said they would not air the Miss USA or Miss Universe pageants.The Miss USA pageant, set to take place July 12 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, also lost both its co-hosts Tuesday, with “Dancing with the Stars’” Cheryl Burke and MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts bowing out. The Miss USA pageant had no specifics on who might host in their place but said the proceedings would be live-streamed on its website.Last week, the hosts of the Univision simulcast, RoselynSanchezandCristian de la Fuente, said they wouldn’t take part in the Spanish-language telecast.Trump, though, said he’s fighting back with a $500 million lawsuit against Univision. The lawsuit claims breach of contract, defamation and First Amendment violations and says Univision turned on him because it supports Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton for president.“We have 50 of the most lovely women you’ve ever seen right now in Louisiana, and they have been abandoned by NBC and abandoned by Univision,” Trump said on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” adding, “They have been crushed.”In a statement, Univision called Trump’s lawsuit “factually false and legally ridiculous.” It said it will “continue to fight against Mr. Trump’s ongoing efforts to run away from the derogatory comments he made.”By Tuesday, the aftershocks had begun to spread into another lucrative part of Trump’s empire, as the Ricky Martin Foundation announced it would withdraw a golf tournament from a Trump-owned property.The tournament, which draws professional players and big sponsors, raises money for child advocacy and scholarships for Latino students. It was to be held Aug. 21 at the Trump International Golf Club in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. It has been moved to the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort.The PGA Tour, which runs a World Golf Championship at Trump Doral near Miami, and the PGA of America, declined to comment on whether Trump’s remarks would impact their relationships with him.___Associated Press reporters Mae Anderson, Katherine Corcoran and Doug Ferguson contributed to this report.

At General Assembly Bosnia and Herzegovina stresses central role of UN in

“In Bosnia and Herzegovina, unfortunately, we know too much about the high price of wars,” Dragan Covic, the Chairman of the country’s Presidency, told world leaders from the podium of the UN General Assembly on the 2nd day of its annual general debate. “On a global level, the United Nations system must be at the heart of all activities using preventive measures to resolve the crises and prevent people from leaving their homes. Again, much of the responsibility for prevention lies with other levels. Within our communities, we must counter all the symptoms of trouble and conflicts,” he added.He highlighted the importance of correcting social injustice, reconciling the seemingly irreconcilable, persevering in compromise and striving for pluralistic and inclusive solutions. In a wide-ranging speech Mr. Covic denounced violence against civilians in Syria, backed the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, called terrorism “undoubtedly the greatest evil of today,” and highlighted the importance of gender equality in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that seek to eliminate a host social ills like hunger and poverty.

New rainyday rules must wait for a solid state surplus

first_imgIt could be years before one of the most popular measures on Tuesday’s ballot has an effect.It could be never. No one can predict when the state of Washington will again see a healthy budget surplus. But when that day comes — when revenues exceed 133 percent of their historical average growth — three-quarters of that surplus revenue will be socked away in the state’s rainy day fund.Voters approved Senate Joint Resolution 8206, a constitutional amendment that imposes a new level of frugality on future state spending, by a resounding 2-to-1 ratio on Tuesday. Sen. Joe Zarelli, R-Ridgefield, introduced the measure in January. It drew bipartisan support, including from Senate Democratic Leader Lisa Brown of Spokane. Zarelli is the ranking Republican on the Senate Ways and Means Committee. The two worked together to establish the state’s first rainy day fund in the Constitution in 2007, and Zarelli collaborated with Sen. Ed Murray, the Seattle Democrat who chairs Ways and Means, to develop a bipartisan budget during the 2011 session.If it had been in place in recent decades, the new savings mandate would have triggered the set-aside of “extraordinary” revenue only twice — in 1989-91, and in 2005-07, when state revenue grew by a stunning 21.4 percent.Zarelli warned from the beginning that the most recent party wouldn’t last.“Those were significant periods between 2004 and 2008,” he said in an interview Thursday. “We saw this spike in revenue, mostly from the real estate excise tax and from construction. We had billions of dollars in surplus revenue that hadn’t been projected. What we knew at that time was that there was no way that kind of growth would continue. When we see that happen, even without a recession, we know that eventually the economy will come back to a normal level.”last_img read more

Discover your potential What an ancestry DNA test reveals to you

first_imgAncestry DNA is a new DNA testing concept that allows you to know more about the history of your ancestry. This technique comprises revolutionary technique which uses autosomal DNA testing. With this kind of test, it is possible to analyze all the twenty-two chromosome pairs other than the usual XY chromosomes. Moreover, ancestry DNA testing evaluates your entire genomic structure. It utilizes advanced science to create predictions that relate to your genetic ethnicity so you can discover new family ties.How It WorksAncestry DNA test helps in uncovering information regarding genetic ethnicity through its ability to recognize prospective DNA matches. The outcome of this test helps you identify the history of your family. This technique of testing utilizes micro-array autosomal analysis which involves swabbing an individual’s saliva and analyzing all their genomes. Basically, this kind of test helps to reveal the history of a family including aspects such as their past, cultural roots, among other pertinent information connected to the family. Moreover, this test helps to establish what connection there is between you and your new relatives. Newest members offer crucial information about the history of one’s family. In most cases, these tests take 6 to 8 weeks for the results to come out.What Does Ancestry DNA DoThe most important thing about this kind of test is that it links and maps an individual’s ethnicity beginning from the earliest generations before providing more information about them. For example, it tracks down the location from which your ancestors belonged and your possibility of adopting new heritages. In addition to that, ancestry DNA testing creates a list of the likely members matching the DNA and helps you identify your relationship with distant relatives.Why this Test is Important for YouAncestry testing is ideal given the fact that it is a neutral technique for testing lineage for all genders. With this process, the details of results are similar for both men and women and are marked in a similar manner for same markers. Ancestry testing is an enhanced DNA matching that analyzes a wider range of DNA, helping to identify information for both the paternal and maternal family history. Moreover, the information generated using this technique is absolutely recent and relevant.Debunking the MythThere is a misconception that females cannot take this kind of testing. The truth is, any person can. Both women and men are tested in a similar way for the similar markers. This technique doesn’t focus on the Y chromosome (used in establishing paternal lineage) or the mitochondrial DNA (using in finding maternal lineage) only. Instead, the ancestry DNA testing studies your entire genomic structure.It is always important to find more information regarding your past and lineage. Most people do this out of curiosity or the need to clear their doubts regarding those they are related to. Although there are numerous DNA testing procedures out there, the ancestry DNA test is more comprehensive and dependable technique given the fact that it does not discriminate on gender.last_img read more

Mice treated with the PTP-sigma inhibitor displayed rapid recovery of blood cells (purple, right). Credit: UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center/Nature Communications August 15, 2014 — A team of doctors at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Ontario, Canada, have, for the first time in North America, successfully destroyed a bone tumor using high-intensity ultrasound guided by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), rather than traditional surgery. “With high-intensity focused ultrasound, we are moving from minimally invasive to non-invasive therapy, significantly reducing risk to the patient and fast-tracking recovery,” says SickKids interventional radiologist Dr. Michael Temple, associate professor of Medical Imaging at the University of Toronto and leader of the team that performed the surgery. “The osteoid osteoma tumor was chosen as our pilot study because the lesion is easily accessible and, while the procedure is sophisticated, it is relatively straightforward. The success of this first case is great news for Jack [Campanile, the patient], and exciting for our team as we look at developing more complex incisionless treatments in the future.”This breakthrough is the latest from SickKids’ Centre for Image-Guided Innovation and Therapeutic Intervention (CIGITI), a research program that brings together surgeons, radiologists, software developers and engineers to develop innovative technologies in robotic and minimally-invasive surgery. The CIGITI bone tumor treatment project is funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation, the Ontario Research Fund, FedDev Ontario, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and the Garron Family Cancer Centre at SickKids. The clinical pilot study is funded by grants from the Focused Ultrasound Foundation’s Clinical Indication Track and the Mary Jo Haddad Innovation Fund from SickKids Foundation.The osteiod osteoma had caused the patient, 16-year-old Jack Campanile, excruciating pain for a year before the procedure. By the time he went to bed that night, the athletic teen experienced complete pain relief.In previous decades, osteoid osteoma was treated with orthopaedic surgery that involved scraping the tumor from the bone or removing the affected part of the bone. Since the mid-1990s, minimally invasive treatments have proven effective — using radio frequency or laser energy is delivered through a needle placed in the tumor using computerized tomography (CT) guidance.However, these procedures still carry risks, including radiation exposure, infection, burning of the surrounding tissue and bone fractures resulting from the hole that remains following treatment of the tumor.High-intensity focused ultrasound therapy uses sound waves, guided by MRI, to heat an area the size of a grain of rice to destroy the tumor. The treatment is completely non-invasive, so the skin and surrounding bone remain intact, greatly reducing the risk of complications such as infections. The use of MRI rather than CT scan to guide the sound waves means the patient avoids exposure to radiation. The risk of bone fracture is also likely lower than in other treatments, and recovery is quick. An added benefit is rapid pain relief.SickKids staff performed the procedure using a specialized MRI table at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, with support from Sunnybrook’s MRI and radiation oncology staff. While the surgery itself took 30 minutes, it required about three hours of preparation, including general anesthesia and precise placement of the patient on a table equipped with a built-in, high-intensity focused ultrasound transducer. The team used the MRI to determine the exact location of the tumor and to help target the ultrasound waves to burn the whole tumor one focal spot at a time at a high energy. The MRI also enabled them to ensure that there was no unexpected increase in heat in surrounding tissues. Accurate positioning and monitoring are critical, as the ultrasound waves could damage surrounding tissues, nerves or skin.A few hours after the procedure, Jack was discharged home, where his recovery has been smooth and quick, with no complications to date. After dealing with a few hours of severe pain following the procedure, he was suddenly pain free. That night, he had uninterrupted sleep for the first time in months. Two days following the procedure, Jack was able to resume most daily activities, including a day trip to Niagara Falls on day four.Before the surgery, Jack’s pain was so debilitating that he needed to take pain medication up to four times daily. “If I didn’t treat the pain attack early enough, it would be so strong that it felt like someone was trying to bend my femur into the shape of a hockey stick,” says the 16-year-old hockey player, snowboarder and wakeboarder, who took his last painkiller following the procedure.The idea of being the first to undergo this new treatment was intriguing, Jack explains. “I wanted to see what it would be like. If it did work, it would be a whole new world for medical procedures and treating osteoid osteoma.”This breakthrough is the latest from SickKids’ Centre for Image-Guided Innovation and Therapeutic Intervention (CIGITI), a research program that brings together surgeons, radiologists, software developers and engineers to develop innovative technologies in robotic and minimally-invasive surgery.“This achievement is both a technical and organizational feat and required several years of collaborative work and fine tuning. We see huge potential in using this technology to develop new, non-invasive therapies in a number of other medical and surgical areas, including the treatment of soft-tissue tumors, paediatric stroke and epilepsy,” said Dr. James Drake, lead of CIGITI; head of the Division of Neurosurgery and Senior Associate Scientist at SickKids; and professor of surgery at University of Toronto.High-intensity focused ultrasound therapy is available in pediatric and adult centers in Europe. The procedure was first performed on patients with osteoid osteoma in Italy in 2010 and is currently used in North America to treat uterine fibroids and bone metastases in adult patients. Osteoid osteoma occurs most commonly in males 10 to 35 years of age. The condition has been reported in patients as young as seven months. Despite its small size — about 1 cm —  the tumor is known to cause extreme pain. SickKids sees as many as 18 patients per year with this condition.This breakthrough was made possible with the efforts of a multidisciplinary team at SickKids: Drs. Adam Waspe, Joao Amaral, Thomas Looi, Maria Lamberti-Pasculli, Joost de Ruiter, Fiona Campbell, Sevan Hopyan and Jane Church.

Top Stories Comments   Share   New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall It is the fifth attack in a week that left 173 people killed as Boko Haram Islamic extremists appear to obey an Islamic State group order to step up attacks in the holy month of Ramadan. Boko Haram became the IS group’s West Africa franchise earlier this year.On Thursday, a woman and a girl strapped with explosives blew up and killed 13 people at a crowded market and a military checkpoint in Malari village, just outside Maiduguri city, according to security guard Abba Shehu.In the most deadly attack, the militants targeted several mosques in Kukawa town on Wednesday, gunning down nearly 100 praying worshippers. Kukawa is 180 kilometers (110 miles) northeast of Maiduguri.The militants, who want to impose their strict version of Shariah law across Nigeria, often defile mosques where clerics preach against their extremism. While they also have attacked churches, many more Muslims are among an estimated 13,000 people killed in the 6-year-old Islamic uprising. Another 1.5 million people have been driven from their homes.Boko Haram took over a large swath of northeastern Nigeria last year and stepped up cross-border raids. A multinational army from Nigeria and its neighbors forced the militants out of towns, but bombings and village attacks are increasing. President Muhammadu Buhari condemned the latest attacks, calling them “desperate acts” that underscore the need to speed up full deployment of the multinational army.Copyright © The Associated Press.

There is not a single city or town which is not suffering from the problem of Bangladeshi infiltrators,C. began arguing that even earlier human relatives dating to 6 million years ago—very soon after the human-chimp evolutionary split—already had humanlike hands as well This even included the ability to press the thumb against the fingers with considerable force a key aspect of precision gripping To get a grasp on what early hands really looked like Almécija and his colleagues analyzed the thumb and finger proportions of a large number of living apes and monkeys including modern humans They then compared these to the hands of several extinct species of apes and early humans including Ardi the Neandertals and the 2-million-year-old Australopithecus sediba from South Africa which its discoverers controversially think might be a direct ancestor of humans The sample also included the 25-million-year-old fossil ape known as Proconsul The team crunched the measurements from all these samples using sophisticated statistical methods designed to determine the course of hand evolution over time The researchers found that the hand of the common ancestor of chimps and humans and perhaps also earlier ape ancestors had a relatively long thumb and shorter fingers similar to that of humans today (Gorillas which spend most of their time on the ground and not in trees have similarly shaped hands) Thus the human hand retains these more “primitive” proportions whereas the elongated fingers and shorter thumbs of chimps as well as orangutans represent a more specialized and “derived” form ideal for life in the trees the team reports today in Nature Communications Almécija says that a hand capable of precision grasping was “one of the earliest adaptations” among members of the human line possibly because it made our ancestors better at gathering a wider variety of foods and not originally because it made them better toolmakers And if human hands largely retained the “primitive” state he adds the most important changes that led to toolmaking would have been “neurological” — that is the result of the enlargement and evolution of the human brain and its ability to plan ahead and better coordinate hand movements “Their results fit very nicely with the view … that the human hand is best described as primitive” says Tracy Kivell an anthropologist at the University of Kent in the United Kingdom who specializes in the study of the primate hand and wrist “It’s good to see that some of the implications of Ardi”—that the common ancestor of chimps and humans was not chimplike—“are being noticed” adds Owen Lovejoy an anatomist at Kent State University in Ohio and member of the team that studied this early member of the human line Rather than being a good model for this common ancestor Lovejoy says today’s chimps are “highly specialized” for a fruit-eating life high up in the trees But the study is not likely to receive a warm welcome from researchers who think the common ancestor of chimps and humans was indeed more chimplike The team “build[s] an evolutionary scenario based on one data point bony proportions of hands with the underlying assumption that they tell a story” says Adrienne Zihlman a primatologist at the University of California Santa Cruz Zihlman argues that the hands alone provide researchers with only a very limited view of what the common ancestor was like “This paper serves as a poster child for what is wrong with a lot of work in paleoanthropology” He also read out statutory provisions to drive home the point that a

including the expanding footprint of the Islamic State group in the region After an absence of more than 10 years Bangladesh make a welcome return to the Champions Trophy – the first time they have made the cut since the tournament was reduced to only eight teams in 2009 That in itself is a mark of the improvement that they have shown as a side in recent years No longer simply the whipping boys of the international stage Bangladesh now rank among the top eight ODI teams of the world; in fact they currently find themselves sixth above both Pakistan and Sri Lanka both former world champions Bangladesh’s last major ODI tournament the 2015 World Cup has to go down as a big success with the side making the quarter-finals and since then the Tigers have enjoyed series wins over Pakistan India and South Africa However their record away from the subcontinent has been less impressive – their recent tour to New Zealand where the conditions are perhaps the most similar to those they are likely to encounter in England ended without a single win in eight matches across all formats Bangladesh players celebrate after dismissing Virat Kohli in the 2015 World Cup Q/F Reuters Bangladesh have been warming up for the Champions Trophy with a tri-nation series against Ireland and New Zealand and enjoyed a fairly encouraging set of matches comfortably beating Ireland and recovering from an early defeat to New Zealand to beat them second time around – a win that took them up to sixthin the ICC ODI rankings However they will face much sterner opposition when the tournament actually starts drawn in a tricky Group A with hosts England as well as Australia and New Zealand – two sides that are likely to prosper in English conditions While Bangladesh face a difficult path to the knockout stages they are no strangers to being the underdogs of world cricket and could find the lack of expectation a boost as they look to spring an upset or two – England fans remember all too well what that feels like having been dumped out of the 2015 World Cup by Bangladesh and suffering a defeat to the Tigers in the 2011 World Cup as well Bangladesh go into the tournament as perhaps a bit of a mystery something their coach Chandika Hathurusingha has admitted: “It is going to be a bit unknown for us We haven’t played in England for a long time It is going to be a big challenge for us” he said “We are playing against three of the best sides in the world I can’t predict what we are going to do but whatever we achieve in any of those games is going to be a big achievement” Warm up games against Pakistan and India give Bangladesh ample opportunity to adjust to English conditions and so it will be fascinating to see how they ultimately get on In Shakib al Hasan the Tigers have the top-ranked all rounder in Test ODI and T20 cricket and while rankings aren’t everything there can be no doubting the left-hander’s class with either bat or ball and with more than 270 international games under his belt his experience would surely be invaluable during the tournament However Bangladesh are far from a one-man team with Tamim Iqbal arguably their best batsman hoping to make up for lost time in global tournaments – after averaging 26 in the 2015 World Cup and only 19 in the 2007 edition Fortunately for Bangladesh fans Tamimcurrently looks to be in fine form with the bat clubbing 127 against Sri Lanka in March and an unbeaten 64 against Ireland only last week If he can keep that up Bangladesh would certainly be a fearsome prospect While Bangladesh will undoubtedly be hoping that the pitches in the tournament offer a bit of assistance to spinners even without that they still possess a genuine threat with the ball in Mustafizur Rahman ‘The Fizz’ effectively bowled Bangladesh to victory in their recent clash with Ireland taking 4/23 and would be dangerous in English conditions as he demonstrated very briefly last season in a frustratingly short spell as one of Sussex’s overseas players in the T20 Blast If all of Bangladesh’s star triumvirate can remain injury-free and find their best form then despite their tricky draw the Tigers could certainly spring a surprise or two Essentially the biggest unknown with Bangladesh will be how they fare in English conditions something that should become a little more apparent after their warm up matches against subcontinentrivals Pakistan and India The Tigers’ first fixture is the tournament opener against England – a side they have beaten in their last two ICC tournament encounters in Chittagong in 2011 and memorably in Adelaide in 2015 The defeat in Adelaide in the 2015 World Cup caused England to completely rethink the way they played ODI cricket leading to the resurgence that sees them now installed as one of the tournament favourites While Bangladesh currently have the longest odds of any side going into the tournament they do now boast of a side that blends the experience of players like Mashrafe Mortaza Tamimand Shakib with the youthful promise of Mustafizur Mehedi Hasan and Mosaddek Hossain among others and should they manage to hit the ground running then that combined with a lack of expectation could see them emerge as something of a tournament dark horse Squad: Tamim Iqbal Soumya Sarkar Imrul Kayes Mushfiqur Rahim Shakib Al Hasan Mahmudullah Sabbir Rahman Mosaddek Hossain
