  • Rising use and trafficking of illicit stimulants threaten security health in Asia

    30 November 2011The rising manufacture, trafficking and use of methamphetamines in East Asia and Southeast Asia pose a growing threat to public health and security in the region, as transnational organized criminal groups become increasingly involved, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) said today. In a report UNODC notes that most of the methamphetamines seized in the region are also manufactured there, reflecting burgeoning production over the past five years.“The international community has taken its eye off the ball on illicit drug production and trafficking in East Asia,” said Gary Lewis, the representative of the UNODC Regional Centre for East Asia and the Pacific.“The numbers are heading in the wrong direction. We must be pro-active on all fronts to assist the countries of the region to counteract these threats and prevent East and South-East Asia from again becoming a major illicit drugs hub.”In addition to threats from regional organized crime groups, the report also draws attention to the growing reach and presence in Asia of transnational organized criminal groups from outside the region.Methamphetamine trafficking by African groups has been officially reported by China, Cambodia, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam. Attempts by Iranian groups to establish illicit manufacturing operations for amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS) in Japan, Malaysia and Thailand have also been reported, according to the study.ATS rank among the top three drugs of use in all 15 countries surveyed in the region. In 10 of those countries, ATS use increased last year. Only Australia, Japan, New Zealand, the Philippines and the Republic of Korea reported stable or declining usage.The use of crystalline methamphetamine has also expanded to countries which had not previously reported it, including Cambodia, China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam. The manufacture and use of ecstasy declined in East and South-East Asia, a development consistent with global trends.“Drug dependence is a chronic relapsing health condition which should be treated in the health sector based on scientific evidence and on each individual’s treatment needs,” said Mr. Lewis. “We need more motivational, cognitive-behavioural and case-management approaches. The vast majority of people can be efficiently treated on an out-patient basis,” he added.Methamphetamine seizures last year reached 136 million pills, a fourfold increase over the 32 million forfeited in 2008. Most pills were seized in China (58.4 million), Thailand (50.4 million), and Laos (24.5 million).Overall, China, Myanmar and the Philippines remain the largest illicit manufacturers of ATS, with significant increase in production reported in Cambodia, Indonesia and Malaysia, according to the report. read more

  • Calls for action heard as Security Council debates plight of civilians in

    Drawing the participation of some 40 countries, the debate reflected the Council’s continued interest in a subject widely seen as a matter of vital importance for the Organization. In their discussion, the delegates were aided by Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s latest report, which examines current trends in several areas of particular concern to the international community. Mr. Annan’s previous report, released in September 1999, contained 40 recommendations for action.Leading off the debate, UN Deputy Secretary-General Louise Fréchette conveyed Mr. Annan’s hope that this meeting would help to move “from words to deeds, and from intention to implementation.” The Secretary-General was travelling today on his way to an African summit in Abuja, Nigeria. “The Secretary-General’s new report urges the speedy ratification of the Statute of the International Criminal Court, and calls for reliable funding of the International Criminal Tribunals and in particular the Special Court for Sierra Leone,” Ms. Fréchette said, noting that there had been “remarkable progress” in efforts to end the culture of impunity for combatants who attacked civilians.The Deputy Secretary-General called for renewed efforts to gain access to vulnerable people in conflict situations and stressed the importance of separating civilians from armed elements in refugee camps. “There, as elsewhere, mixed communities often find themselves under the control of unaccountable armed elements, who may further terrorize already vulnerable civilians, divert needed aid to fighters, and establish bases for cross-border attacks, all of which threatens even greater destabilization and even regional wars.”The Council also heard a statement by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Mary Robinson, who pointed out that her Office’s experience represented “an important pool of practice for this Council.” She cited in particular UN reports by special rapporteurs, field offices and fact-finding missions. Mrs. Robinson also drew attention to the key role of the UN in promoting responsible behaviour by businesses in conflict areas. “My Office is committed to supporting efforts by corporations to analyze the potential impacts of their presence in zones of conflict and to ensure that systems are in place to avoid unintended consequences,” she said.Echoing a widely shared sentiment, the current president of the Security Council, Ambassador Jeremy Greenstock of the United Kingdom, called on the participants to offer concrete proposals for effecting change and on “steps that will make a difference.” “It is important that something solid and valuable emerges from today’s debate,” Ambassador Greenstock said, reiterating the need to concentrate on “what the Security Council can do in practical terms.” read more

  • Armed groups in northwest Colombia cause increasingly critical situation – UN

    The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) repeated its call to all parties in the South American country’s decades-old civil wars to abide by the principles of international humanitarian law, respect the civilian population and guarantee the safety of humanitarian workers. Over the weekend hundreds of people from the Afro-Colombian community of Pogue sought refuge in the town of Bellavista from the fighting and some 7,000 more in Bojaya municipality of Choco Province could be at direct risk of displacement, according to local authorities, in what UNHCR called “the increasingly critical situation.” UNHCR sent a team to Bellavista on Friday. “We will maintain a temporary presence through regular missions to the zone, enabling close monitoring of developments and coordination with authorities in the provision of humanitarian assistance,” spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis told a news briefing in Geneva. A further 4,000 indigenous people belonging to the Embera and Wounaan communities along the Cuia and Bojaya rivers are also at grave risk of becoming internally displaced by severe hardship and insecurity caused by irregular armed groups on their land, Ms. Pagonis said. Indigenous people have told UNHCR field officers that the groups have imposed a blockade and prevented food, medicine and other vital supplies from reaching their villages. Some 150 indigenous people who travelled to Bellavista recently to obtain supplies are unable to return to their homes because of the blockade. Others have suffered harassment and intimidation from the groups who fired shots in the air and threatened to kill the men and rape the women. Tensions have risen in recent months as left-wing Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) guerrillas and right-wing United Self-Defence Forces (AUC) paramilitaries have been reported to be massing while the Colombian Army prepares an offensive. In the May 2002 massacre, 119 people taking refuge in the church at Bellavista were killed by mortar during fighting between FARC and AUC. Thousands of people left the area then and hundreds of them have still not returned. read more

  • Child sexual abuse and exploitation UN event sheds light on the unthinkable

    According to the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), globally, as of 2014, at least 120 million girls under the age of 20 – about one in 10 – have been forced to engage in sex or perform other sexual acts. Millions more, including millions of boys, never tell anyone about being abused, for fear of stigma or reprisals.Furthermore, the UK-based independent think-tank Overseas Development Institute (ODI), estimates that the global economic impacts and costs resulting from the consequences of physical, psychological and sexual violence against children could be as high as $7 trillion – a figure cited at the meeting by Ms. Mohammed. This massive cost is higher than the investment required to prevent much of that violence. “Every day, across all countries and levels of society, millions of girls and boys face the alarmingly common childhood experience of sexual abuse and exploitation,” said Amina J. Mohammed, the UN Deputy Secretary-General in her opening remarks for the event, co-organized by the World Childhood Foundation, the Swedish Mission to the UN, the UN Office of Partnerships and other non-profits. “Faced with growing evidence of the impacts and the emergence of the internet in facilitating the sexual exploitation of children, governments have started to act,” noted the deputy UN chief.Target 16.2 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) calls on all countries to “end abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence against, and torture of, children” by 2030.“All over the world, governments are updating their laws and policies to more effectively criminalize child sexual abuse and exploitation. Governments are also building systems to better protect and care for child victims. Civil society, the media and industry are key allies in these efforts,” said Ms. Mohamed.During the event, a benchmarking tool developed by The Economist Intelligence Unit was officially launched. Known as “Out of the Shadows”, it covers 40 countries and assesses how effectively nations are addressing issues of child sexual abuse across four categories: the safety of the environments in which children evolve; the legal frameworks in place; the level of government commitment and capacity to address the issue; and the level of engagement of the private sector, civil society and the media.  We see younger and younger kids. And the younger the kids are, the more violent the abuse, especially for boys – Björn Sellström, INTERPOLThe Index reveals that the wealthiest countries tend to have the highest rankings, but even so, their scores reveal critical gaps in terms of achieving all the necessary protective conditions for children.Much of the sexual violence is being widely shared over the Internet. “In terms of trends, and this is of course worrying, what we see in terms of online sexual abuse, is that a vast majority of the children we’re looking at are ‘white’ children…coming from the Western part of the world,” said Björn Sellström, Coordinator for Crimes Against Children for the inter-governmental crime-fighting organization INTERPOL.“We see younger and younger kids. And the younger the kids are, the more violent the abuse, especially for boys,” he explained, adding that the majority of the materials depict pre-pubescents or toddlers, which points to the fact that perpetrators are often well-known to the victims. The UN deputy chief noted that thanks to data collected over the years, we now have a deeper understanding “of what works to make society safer for children”, insisting on the need for multi-sectoral and multi-partner approaches, within the UN and at the national level.The Out of the Shadows tool was created to allow an easy collection and sharing of best practices worldwide, a reliable identification of gaps, and widen discussion of a subject that remains taboo in many societies.Ms. Mohammed concluded: “Preventing violence and exploitation of children is everyone’s business, everywhere, at all times. We must address this challenge and break the silence.” read more

  • University Challenges genderbalanced questions backfire as contestants fail to answer them

    Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. The student, 20, from St John’s, Cambridge, said she hopes the questions will spur the general public to learn about women in academia. She said: “I would hope that any initial increase in difficulty would be offset by the greater awareness of these women created by their being mentioned on the show, which would hopefully lead people to learn more about them and therefore be better equipped to answer those questions in future.” Additionally, contestants faced a music round on Marin Alsop, the first woman to conduct the Last Night of the Proms, and bonus questions on Byzantine historian and princess Anna Komnene.Previously in the series, there have been bonus rounds on “prominent women”, including writers, pilots and golfers, as well as “women born in the 1870s and 80s”, and female philosophers Mary Midgely, Philippa Foot and Iris Murdoch.A University Challenge spokesman said: “When deciding on the questions to set, we continue to look at how best they reflect all people of achievement and historical importance, and try and ensure that they are challenging, entertaining and cover an appropriately broad range of subject matter.” Thomas Benson, University Challenge’s questions editor,  has confirmed that there has been an effort to equalise the gender imbalance in the quiz. “About three years ago, a viewer wrote in to point out that a recent edition of the programme had contained very few questions on women,” he told the New Statesman.“We agreed and decided to do something about it.”That was notable during the final,  which featured a round on female artists and a series of questions about noted US author Willa Cather. When University Challenge realised that the bulk of their questions related to prominent men, they decided to rectify the situation by ensuring a better gender balance.However, contestants say that the admirable decision had the unintended consequence of making the already notoriously difficult quiz even harder, because fewer people have heard of the prominent female academics and artists to which the questions refer.ITV Studios, which produces the BBC show, confirmed it had been attempting to make questions more diverse, but said contestants should not find them any more difficult as they all fall within the range of academic general knowledge.But one finalist team said that a round relating to female philosophers was more difficult than if it had been about famous male philosophers. They passed on every question.Rosie McKeown, from the winning team told The Telegraph: “I know our team did badly on the round about female philosophers, and I think we would have had more names to draw on in order to make an educated guess if the questions had been about men.” read more

  • Cricket Ireland perform uturn and reveal plans for new national stadium in

    first_img By Ryan Bailey Image: Ryan Byrne/INPHO “What we can say is that experience of developing the playing surfaces at Malahide tells us that we have to wait a good two years for the pitches to properly bed down, so it’s unlikely we’ll be bowling the first ball there for a good three years or so.”Meanwhile, Cricket Ireland has approved a budget of €9 million for this year, representing its largest ever annual operational expenditure ahead of a busy summer which includes a historic first Test match against Pakistan in May.Malahide will host Ireland’s inaugural Test as well as the Twenty20 series against India in June.The42 is on Instagram! Tap the button below on your phone to follow us! Feb 28th 2018, 4:21 PM Ireland paired with reigning world champions and England in tough World Cup draw PLANS TO DEVELOP an international ground at Malahide have been shelved, with Cricket Ireland today announcing its preference for a purpose-built playing and training facility in west Dublin.Malahide, which has hosted the majority of Ireland home games in recent years, was originally identified as the location for the development of a new €6 million national stadium, but Cricket Ireland has performed a u-turn on those plans.With the recommendations of an external expert, who found drawbacks in developing Malahide as an international ground due to planning and zoning restrictions, Cricket Ireland’s board last week endorsed the development of a new permanent stadium in Abbotstown.To be situated on Sport Ireland’s National Sports Campus, the new stadium will be separate to the €600,000 high-performance training facility which is nearing completion after 15 months of construction.The announcement is part of Cricket Ireland’s wider strategy to develop a larger network of international standard grounds to meet the added demands of international and first-class cricket, as well as Ireland’s Full Member and Test status awarded last year.At present, only four grounds in the country — Malahide, Clontarf, Bready and Stormont — hold the necessary accreditation to stage international fixtures.“It has been no secret that our initial thinking was based around a redevelopment and expansion of Malahide Cricket Club,” Cricket Ireland CEO, Warren Deutrom, said.“However, the report informed the Board’s deliberations around a number of important issues around venue access and future-proofing.”“When we selected Malahide as the location for our main stadium in Dublin a decade ago, Irish cricket was in a very different position with a much smaller fixture list. By achieving Test status and joining the FTP [Future Tours Programme], we’ve had to ask ourselves the tough question of whether that decision is still fit-for-purpose.”“Fundamentally, if we are to request substantial sums from Government, we need to be sure we can deliver on our programme of cricket matches at permanently-constructed venues which are commensurate with our new status.” Malahide CCC was initially identified as the location for Ireland’s national stadium. Source: Rowland White/Presseye“It was a decision the Board did not take lightly. Every member of the Board acknowledged the emotional ties we have developed with Malahide – particularly after some of the big games of recent years – and the decision should not in any way be seen as a reflection on the club.”“In fact, Malahide’s members and volunteers have been superb to deal with over many years, but our entry into the FTP will place requirements for availability on the club that will be unrealistic for members who will understandably want access to their main pitch to play their own fixtures.”The next step in the process is engaging with Sport Ireland and the Government over the procurement of funding, with Deutrom adding that it will be some time before the facility is fit for use but Cricket Ireland wants to set the wheels in motion as soon as possible. https://the42.ie/3877179 Share11 Tweet Email2 19,261 Views Cricket Ireland perform u-turn and reveal plans for new national stadium in west Dublin The new purpose-built facility will be on the National Sports Campus in Abbotstown. center_img Ireland play their first Test match this May in Malahide.

  • Lucas Chess play and train chess

    first_imgLucas Chess: play and train chess by Martin Brinkmann on December 04, 2016 in Games – Last Update: July 16, 2018 – 11 commentsLucas Chess is a free chess training and playing program for Microsoft Windows devices that ships with an impressive set of features.While I do know how to play chess, I was never particularly good at the game. My father taught me the game of kings, but I lost interest in the game and started to explore other gaming options early on.Chess has simple rules that anyone can learn quickly, but it is highly strategic and requires excellent forward thinking capabilities.Lucas ChessLucas Chess is a free, long standing, chess training and playing program for Windows that is suitable for absolute beginners, grandmasters, and anyone in between the two extremes.The chess program ships with 36 different engines ranging from 1300 elo all the way up to 3000 elo. Additionally, it ships with engines designed specifically for young children who pose little challenge but help explore chess in a non-competitive environment (and win likely against the computer early on).The section for children is gamified a bit as well. Children can try to complete animal albums by beating opponents. For each opponent beat in the game, a new animal picture is revealed. You may proceed to the next album once all animals of an album are collected.While you can play against various engines without using the training components of Lucas Chess, this is one area in which the program really shines.If you select competition for instance, you start against a beginning engine. The engine analyses each move you make, and suggests different moves if your move is less than ideal.This may help you get better at the game by analyzing why the tutor suggested a different move.As far as play options are concerned, you can pick an elo rating that you want the engine to emulate, or customize the engine by selecting it from the list of available ones instead.The customization options are impressive. One option that you have is to assign a personality to the engine that you can assign specific opening, mid game and end game strategies for.Training makes up a big part of Lucas Chess. While you may not find all training options useful, like checking your memory on a chessboard or playing blind chess (without seeing the actual pieces on the board, like memory chess), others may be quite useful.You may train end game or mid game positions, play against grandmasters, try to find the best moves, or learn openings by repetition.Closing WordsLucas Chess is a program designed for chess players of all skills. Absolute beginners may use it to play against computer opponents that are relatively easy to beat. The tutoring system with its move suggestion option helps get better at the game over time.Somewhat experienced players may learn new openings, mid or end game strategies, or play against computer opponents that match their skill.Lucas Chess, all in all is an excellent program for anyone interested in chess.Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 5 votes Software Name Lucas ChessOperating System WindowsSoftware Category GamesLanding Page https://lucaschess.pythonanywhere.com/ Advertisementlast_img read more

  • Trump sued twice in a day over trans military ban

    first_imgeTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) “Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.”On Friday (August 25), Trump officially and indefinitely instructed the Pentagon to ban transgender troops from serving in the US Military when he signed a presidential memorandum.The memo gives Mattis six months to implement the ban, by 23 March 2018.http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2017/08/26/trump-accused-of-using-hurricane-harvey-to-cover-arpaio-pardon-and-trans-troop-ban/The Commander in Chief was accused of trying to pass the ban and the pardon Joe Arpaio under the radar while media outlets focus on hurricane Harvey.He was also accused of major hypocrisy after an address he made on Monday night about the US Military in which he said there was “no room for prejudice… for bigotry.”Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)The first claims that the move to ban transgender military personnel relied on “uninformed speculation, myths and stereotypes, and a desire to harm transgender people”.The second suit claimed that prejudice towards trans people fired the decision to enforce the ban.Joshua Block, an attorney for ACLU said that trans personnel were of more worth than the ban that had been imposed.“Men and women who are transgender with the courage and capacity to serve deserve more from their commander-in-chief,” Block said.Plaintiffs in the case said the policy was “dripping with animus”.The Lambda Legal and OutServe-Service Members Legal Defense Network also claim the ban is “unsupported by any compelling, important, or even rational justification”.Trump tweeted his intention to reverse a policy enacted under Obama that allowed trans people to serve.He wrote: “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.
