Pakistan summons Indias deputy High Commissioner for 4th time over ceasefire violations

first_imgIslamabad: Pakistan on Monday summoned India’s Deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia for the fourth time over alleged ceasefire violations by the Indian troops along the Line of Control (LoC). Pakistan Foreign Office said that Director General (South Asia and SAARC) Mohammad Faisal “condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations on August 18 in Hot Spring and Chirikot Sectors”. It claimed that two elderly civilians were killed and a seven-year-old boy was seriously injured in the firing.

Faisal also said that the deliberate targeting of civilian-populated areas is indeed deplorable and contrary to human dignity, international human rights and humanitarian laws. He said the ceasefire violations by India were a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls Faisal asked the Indian side to respect the 2003 Ceasefire arrangement; investigate these and other incidents of ceasefire violations; instruct the Indian forces to respect the ceasefire, in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LoC and the Working Boundary, the Foreign Office said. This is the fourth time in a week that Ahluwalia has been summoned by Pakistan. Ahluwalia was also summoned by Pakistan on August 14, 15, 16 over alleged ceasefire violations.last_img read more

Most people seeking euthanasia in Nova Scotia in early 2017 didnt get

first_imgHALIFAX – Nearly two-thirds of Nova Scotians seeking assisted suicide in the first six months of 2017 did not receive a lethal injection, with doctors saying the province’s system is short of available physicians and payments are low.The Nova Scotia Health Authority reports that of 64 referrals made for medical assistance in dying, 23 were completed between Jan. 1 and Canada Day.The remaining patients either dropped the request, lost the mental ability to agree — a requirement under Canada’s Bill C-14 — or died before anyone could carry out the euthanasia.Over the past year Bill C-14 has allowed for the procedure when patients are over 18, have a serious and incurable illness or disability, are in an advanced state of irreversible decline, endure intolerable pain, and face a “reasonably foreseeable” death.Dr. Tim Holland — a Halifax doctor who performs medically assisted deaths — said the province’s system needs better ways to train physicians for euthanasia, improved administration and higher reimbursement for doctors.“We have a small set of providers, but we can’t possibly keep up with the patient demand,” he told delegates at the International Conference on End of Life Law, Ethics, Policy and Practice in Halifax earlier this month.He said 20 doctors came to a recent training session, but many also want to witness a procedure first hand — a step that is taking more time than expected to arrange.“We’re two years behind the mark of where we should have been compared to other jurisdictions,” Holland said during a presentation on the early days of medically assisted dying in the province.He also said he has been advocating for the ability to bill for more than four hours, as the process often requires more time than that.“None of us want to make money off of it. But we’d like to see a situation where we’re not losing money in it,” said Holland.A spokeswoman for the Health Department said Friday the fees are still being reviewed, and policies for medical assistance in death are still under development.Cancer was the most common reported underlying condition for the euthanasia, followed by neuro-degenerative, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, according to the health authority’s records.Since it became available in Nova Scotia in June 2016, 46 people have received medical assistance in dying, the health authority says.Dr. Lynne Harrigan, the vice-president of medicine at the Nova Scotia Health Authority, said there is a “learning curve for everybody involved.”She said in some cases, gravely ill people are applying too late and lose the capacity to consent.In other instances, there is difficulty finding an available doctor, she added.“We’re working to train physicians to come forward,” she said.The law requires agreement between two physicians who are examining the request, and families need to have the process carefully explained, he added.The process also involves a 10-day wait period after a consent form is signed as a time for sober second thought and families to make last preparations. It can be waived if the person is at risk of losing their capacity to agree to their death.Under Canadian law, the person must have the capacity to understand what is occurring up until the point the fatal drug is provided.Another Nova Scotia physician, Dr. Robyn MacQuarrie, said during the euthanasia conference that doctors in the province involved in assisted suicide over the past year already have multiple practices and responsibilities, and most live in a 100-kilometre radius of Halifax — meaning long journeys around the province.Some patients are waiting until the “very end” to request the process, and that is putting pressure on the small pool of doctors involved, she added.“We feel guilt we can’t provide the service right away. Obviously we care about these patients and people having the kind of death they want to have. It’s a bit emotionally overwhelming for us to constantly have these emergency assessments.”Follow (at)mtuttoncporg on Twitter.last_img read more

Soccer Aid 2014 Raises Record Breaking £6525072 For UNICEF

first_imgUNICEF UK can today announce that Soccer Aid 2014, broadcast on ITV, has raised a final total of £6,525,072 for its vital work to save children’s lives around the world.Thanks to the generous response from ITV viewers, and the UK Government matching all public donations pound for pound, this figure has smashed all previous records set by the biennial event.Soccer Aid 2014 took place at a packed out Old Trafford on 8th June 2014 and was broadcast live on ITV. The match saw celebrities and football legends team up for a fifth time to play an enthralling game of football whilst raising crucial money for Unicef, the world’s leading children’s organisation.A crowd of nearly 70,000 turned out to see Robbie Williams lead the England team with Welsh movie star Michael Sheen returning to captain The Rest of the World. Star players including John Bishop, Dominic Cooper, Marvin Humes, James McAvoy, Olly Murs, Jeremey Renner, Adam Richman and Jack Whitehall took part in the electrifying match which saw the Rest Of The World defeat England 4-2.Throughout the match short films were broadcast presented by Unicef Ambassadors David Beckham and Cat Deeley and Unicef supporters Dame Judi Dench, Lewis Hamilton, Keeley Hawes and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley showing how Unicef helps protect children around the world from the dangers they face.Robbie Williams, Unicef UK Ambassador and co-founder of Soccer Aid said: “Soccer Aid was just a dream a few years ago and look at it now. Being able to walk out in front of a packed Old Trafford – with some of the world’s best footballers – whilst at the same time raising money for Unicef to help keep children safe is absolutely incredible. Thank you so so much to everyone who donated on the night or bought a ticket to the match – we couldn’t have done it without you.”Michael Sheen, Unicef UK Ambassador and Rest of the World captain added: “I can’t deny that it was a real privilege to captain the Rest Of The World to victory in such a hotly contested match, but arguably the best bit of all is knowing the difference that this game of football makes. Thanks to the public’s generous donations and the pound for pound UK Government Aid Match, this year’s Soccer Aid raised more money than ever for Unicef’s vital work to protect children around the world from the danger. On behalf of Unicef, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated.”All the money raised through Soccer Aid will go to save and change children’s lives. Examples of how money will be spent include providing children with vaccines to protect them against killer diseases; with clean, safe water to drink; and with emergency supplies such as life-saving emergency food.Soccer Aid was produced by Initial, an Endemol Company for ITV and was broadcast live on Sunday 8th June on ITV. Tesco were the fundraising sponsor for Soccer Aid 2014.The five Soccer Aid events in 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014 have together raised over £18 million for Unicef’s work for children.Source:UNICEF UKlast_img read more

Governments must ramp up action to ward off looming water crisis UN

With competition on the rise between humans and other species for the world’s limited water supplies, governments must take environmental issues into consideration when drafting laws on the use of water to avert an impending water crisis, cautions a new United Nations report.Although more than two-thirds of the planet is covered in water, only 2.5 per cent is freshwater, most of which is stored deep underground or in glaciers, leaving only 1 per cent available for human use.A key challenge facing countries is how to meet the water needs of a growing human population, while maintaining freshwater ecosystems and supporting environmental sustainability, says “Greening Water Law,” the new publication launched in Stockholm, Sweden, today by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP).Every year, nearly 1.8 million children under the age of five die from diarrhoeal diseases, including cholera, typhoid and dysentery, and these deaths are attributable to a lack of safe drinking water and basic sanitation.If the international community does not take action to improve freshwater supplies for drinking, sanitation and hygiene, up to 135 million preventable deaths could occur in the coming decade, the report warns.The unsustainable use of freshwater also drives biodiversity loss, it says, citing the example of North America, where nearly 30 per cent of continental freshwater fauna populations are threatened with extinction due to depleted and contaminated water sources.“Achieving a better balance between human and environmental water needs will require significant changes in legislation – and you need legal tools to do this,” says Gabriel Eckstein, the report’s lead author.In Australia’s New South Wales, for example, the Water Management Act dictates that in the event of a severe water shortage, freshwater will first be allocated to meet basic domestic and municipal needs, then in response to environmental necessities and then finally for all other purposes.The Water Resources Act in Paraguay ranks the water needs of aquatic ecosystems as second to humans but ahead of agriculture, power generation and industry.“These laws recognize the immense value of freshwater resources,” Mr. Eckstein notes.The UNEP study also points to the economic gains that can be derived from having freshwater resources protected by national law.The world’s wetlands are estimated to provide as much as $15 trillion in ecosystem services through their natural ability to purify and detoxify water. 7 September 2010With competition on the rise between humans and other species for the world’s limited water supplies, governments must take environmental issues into consideration when drafting laws on the use of water to avert an impending water crisis, cautions a new United Nations report. read more

United Way campaign closing in on 130000 goal

Diana Panter believes there are a million reasons to donate to Brock’s United Way campaign.But for the purpose of meeting this year’s goal, there are close to $10,000 reasons.The 2014 campaign has raised more than $120,000 (93%) for the United Way St. Catharines and District, which funds 66 programs delivered by 39 agencies.Support from the Brock community has once again been generous, and Panter is hoping a final push will help meet its target of $130,000.“I think we have a very generous community here, and we’re always overwhelmed at how supportive people are when our campaign comes around,” said Panter, Brock’s United Way staff co-chair. “They always seem to answer the call.”Brock’s United Way committee is hosting its annual campaign and wrap-up event Dec. 9 at Market Hall at 2 p.m. Coffee and cake will be served as a gesture of appreciation to donors, volunteers, committee members and supporters.Those in attendance can also win a $50 Campus Store gift card, $25 Brock card and the grand prize of a parking pass upgrade.While the majority of money raised comes from one-time donations and payroll contributions, Brock’s United Way fundraising events have been very popular over the years.The Souper Star lunch once again sold out, the inaugural Spin-A-Thon raised over $1,000, and Trivia Night raised almost $4000, more money than in previous years.With one in four people in Niagara using a United Way program in their lifetime, the campaign remains critical to the community.“When you think about the population of Niagara, there’s a little over 430,000 people, so that’s a lot of people in Niagara who are dependent on their services, and most of the people who rely on them do so because they are either in poverty or could be seniors or have serious health problems,” Panter said. “There are a million reasons why to donate to the campaign, and we’re so lucky and privileged to be in good health and have employment and work at a great place like Brock University. It’s great to give back.” read more

The new black in Greeces current stalled state of affairs

first_imgIt’s been a long, tough time for anyone living in Greece. That is pretty much well established at this point. Wave upon wave of soul-crushing austerity, businesses closing down so often and so quickly that it’s not even worth reporting on anymore and a new breed of Greeks living on the streets, with no eyes left to look at the future. All that can be seen on a clear day, from the top of the European unemployment mountain that Greece has firmly stuck its flag on. I thought we did this alreadyAnd yet, listening to current prime minister Alexis Tsipras and his ministerial brigade talk about how they’ve just saved Greece, you’d be forgiven for thinking you may have missed a beat somewhere. Because surely, most definitely, hasn’t that been done already? Didn’t Tsipras save Greece not too long ago, during that historic battle with the country’s EU lenders, which lasted a whopping and sleep-deprivating 17 hours straight? In fact, didn’t previous prime minister Antonis Samaras do that as well? Hadn’t he also rescued Greece when agreeing his version of the bailout, a bailout which was going to put an end to the memorandum era? Wasn’t the then prime minister ripping up the memorandum page by page, as he so famously said? The answer to all of the above is a hearty and quite heavy-set yes. Apparently Greece, pretty much the pariah of the European Union at this point, has been rescued, saved and dragged back from the brink a number of times, only for the citizens of the country to realise that in effect, that doesn’t really change much. The distance between the political rescue announcements and the reality on the street is still separated by a chasm wide enough to fit the Aegean sea. “I personally don’t see a way out. But I’m old enough not to care anymore. I’ll be 79 in September. Whatever comes next will matter very little to me. It’s a terrible thing to say, but what can you do?” Manolis is a small business owner, running a convenience store, a short drive from the centre of Athens. Mainly dealing with neighbourhood customers, the 78-year-old has finally decided to lock up his shop for good this coming June, unable to deal with the coming tax onslaught that SYRIZA has cooked up, in order to finally agree a deal with the troika (or whatever the current government would like them to be referred to these days), a deal that would finally allow Greece to access the first slice of the much-maligned bailout deal that seems to constantly be on its way, but never quite gets here. According to the minister for labour and social security, Giorgos Katrougkalos, the new tax and social security structure that SYRIZA is attempting to build is fair on everyone, especially for the lower and middle financial classes, who are of course both struggling for air within a political system that only has one answer to everything that the EU lenders throw on the table: we will see your new demands and raise taxes. And raise taxes. And raise taxes. And frankly, raise some more taxes. It is, of course, a knee-jerk reaction from a government with precious few answers, in a time that desperately needs them. Rising to power on the wave of a campaign that was designed to distance SYRIZA from PASOK and New Democracy, the two major established political parties that had effectively shared the running of Greece since the fall of the military junta in 1974, the party led by Alexis Tsipras promised an end to everything that had brought Greece to its knees: old school political thinking, corruption, unemployment and of course, austerity. It hasn’t worked out that way. Greeks saw their hopes of a better day crushed when SYRIZA started backpedalling almost immediately upon taking power, stammering and dodging as the EU muscle that they thought they could out-manoeuvre hammered them into a corner. SYRIZA’s current play for gold sees it accept that a new wave of taxes will be hitting Greeks where it hurts, but that this will be the final crack of the whip on its already heavily-bleeding back. Just around the corner, it promises, are talks over the Greek debt and a way to finally slice the staggering €350 billion monster – that the ECB and the countries of Europe have handed over – down to size. The sounds and mumbles around the EU are certainly pointing in that general direction. The president of the Eurogroup and Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem admitted while speaking at Oxford University earlier this week that a solution concerning the Greek debt had to be found, as it could not be denied that it was destabilising the economy and causing major issues. He did, however, rule out the possibility of that much needed debt ‘haircut’. So essentially Greece, the EU hears what you’re saying, just don’t expect much just yet. It all leaves the average Greek in no-man’s land. Ruled by yet another government that has gone back on every single thing it promised to do, hit by tax hikes on all sides and with a news feed that is seemingly stuck on a loop since the crisis began: Greece is on the brink of exiting the EU; Greece agrees deal with EU lenders; Greece is saved and on its way back to the luscious lands of financial growth; talks between Greece and its EU lenders have stalled; Greece is on the brink of exiting the EU. And so on and so forth until all blends into a blur, morphing into Groundhog Day: the Aegean edition. “I mean, I’m not saying that we shouldn’t have seen it coming,” Manolis huffs with a slight shrug of his ageing shoulders, “but I think most of us just wanted to believe that it would be easy to turn a corner, just by voting ‘the right way’, do you know what I mean?”He takes a small sip of his coffee and crosses his legs as he sits on a plastic chair, right outside his rather barren convenience store, whose empty shelves clearly can’t wait for June. I briefly mention the talks of the debt ‘haircut’ and how that could switch Greece’s ailing fortunes. He chuckles with a slight cough.“How many times have we heard that already? And how many times are we going to hear it again? It all sounds the same and frankly, it all sounds of nothing. Life is getting harder, taxes keep coming, how does that help us?”He turns to his side, switches on his radio just as a news report starts. Top story: Greece edging closer to a deal with EU lenders. He smiles at me and nods his head towards the speaker. Another day, another sense of déjà vu. * Gerard Papasimakopoulos is a radio show host and translator.

Paphos armed robbers still at large

first_imgTHE stolen car used by two hooded armed robbers that blasted their way into a branch of the co-op bank in Timi at around 8.30am on Monday morning before demanding cash and fleeing the scene with €21,500, was found burnt out at midnight the same day.The beige/coffee coloured Hyundai four-wheel drive, registration LAR 046, which was reported stolen from a parking lot at Paphos airport, was found on the outskirts of Choullou village in Paphos.“The robbers set the car on fire and it is destroyed,” Paphos police spokesman Michalis Ioannou told the Cyprus Mail, adding that so far, no witnesses to the action had come forward.The vehicle owner is from Larnaca and parked it at the airport while traveling abroad.Four people voluntarily gave statements at Paphos CID on Monday and a subsequent search of their homes found no evidence relating to the crime, said Ioannou.“We are still investigating but so far, no arrests have been made,” he said.The robbers spoke in broken Greek, and both wielded guns, a Cyprus issue G3 assault rifle, and a hunting shotgun at terrified staff after first shooting out the glass of the security doors at the front of the bank before entering. They had their faces covered and demanded money from the two terrified female bank tellers on duty. There was also one customer inside the bank at the time.Paphos police are also investigating a robbery at a jewellery shop in Chlorakas village in the early hours of Tuesday morning, which saw the thief or thieves make their get away with a large amount of silver jewellery and watches, the value of which is yet unknown.Ioannou said: “The robber or robbers broke into an empty shop next to the jeweller, it used to be a bank, and destroyed the dividing wall between the two before gaining entry.”He said that the perpetrator then cut the wires to the CCTV equipment, before looting the store and making a get way. Ioannou said that technicians are repairing the equipment which will enable the police to examine any footage; this will hopefully show how many thieves there were, he said. “The alarm went off at 4am and triggered an SMS message to the shop owner who then called the police, we were at the scene within 15 minutes, but it was too late,” he said.The store owner is insured, he added.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
