UN expert stresses need for impartial judges on International Criminal Court

“The great hope for international justice that the ICC represents rests with its integrity and its ability to provide fair, independent and impartial justice to people all over the world, irrespective of power, influence or authority,” said Dato Param Cumaraswamy, the Special Rapporteur on the independence of judges and lawyers, in a statement released in Geneva. “Its ability to achieve these lofty aims rests, to a substantial degree, with it remaining free of politics.”Mr. Cumaraswamy warned of a risk that the ICC could become politicized if the procedures that regulate the nomination and selection of its judges do not contain adequate safeguards. Under the Rome Statute which created the Court, an advisory committee on nominations will be set up. The Special Rapporteur said that panel “should contain individuals with recognized expertise in the exercise of the judicial function, especially at the international level, such as former members of international courts.”If the advisory committee is established appropriately, it can act as a strong safeguard for the integrity of the selection process, according to the Special Rapporteur.The ICC, to be located at The Hague, will be established on Monday in accordance with its Statute, which requires 60 ratifications to enter into force. Currently, the Statute had 69 ratifications and 139 signatories. read more

China has confirmed case of SARS UN health agency says

The male patient, a 32-year-old television producer, is said to be improving and in stable condition, according to Dr. Julie Hall, Communicable Disease Surveillance and Response Coordinator for the World Health Organization (WHO) in China.“The contacts that he has had have been traced and the 81 people that have been identified have been followed up and they are all said to be well,” she said in an interview with UN Radio. “So at this moment in time in China we have one confirmed case of SARS; however [it] has been isolated and as far as we can tell there is no ongoing transmission to human beings.”Dr. Hall added it was unclear how the man had contracted the virus and that further investigation was required to determine the source of the flu-like illness.In two previous instances, SARS was contracted by laboratory workers in Taiwan, Province of China and in Singapore. By contrast, WHO said today the new Guangdong case did not stem from a lab.“What these cases show, though, are the two potential sources of the virus that WHO has warned against – the lab and the potentially animal source of the virus – and we need to be sure we are protected from these sources of the virus and that we work towards eliminating the virus as a public health threat,” she said.Asked about the decision by the Cantonese health bureau to slaughter more than 10,000 civet cats, Dr. Hall noted that WHO has confirmed from the beginning of the outbreak that the virus may have originated from an animal and then jumped to human beings.However, “there is no evidence that civets carry SARS to human beings, nor do we know the full range of animals capable of carrying and transmitting the virus,” she stressed. “We are also concerned that the process itself may entail some risk to those who are carrying SARS around…so WHO is saying to the Government of China, ‘Please undertake a risk assessment before you do this, look at the risks associated with these animals, are they alive, look at measures which can be taken to limit the contact between animals and human beings, but also study carefully the risk associated with these animals and ensure that those who do these are protected.’”SARS broke out in the late 2002, killing over 700 people and infecting more than 8,000 worldwide.

North American markets push higher amid tepid US economic news

North American markets push higher amid tepid U.S. economic news by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 16, 2015 6:50 am MDT Last Updated Oct 16, 2015 at 3:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Financial companies gave the Toronto stock market a slight push into positive territory Friday as New York indexes also advanced despite tepid news on the U.S. economy.The S&P/TSX composite index added a mere 9.13 points to 13,838.10 as it gave back about one per cent overall in a trading week shortened by the Thanksgiving holiday.Ahead of the federal election on Monday, the Canadian dollar fell 0.39 of a U.S. cent to 77.45 cents US.Norman Raschkowan, senior partner at Sage Road Advisors, said election results will have a noticeable impact on the currency next week as traders assess what the outcome means for Canada’s economy.The country has faced a significant decline in the performance of the energy sector this year, and a report from one major credit rating agency suggests the climate is only worsening for Canadian energy companies while oil and gas prices hold below US$50 a barrel.Standard and Poor’s has taken “negative rating actions” on two big companies — Cenovus Energy (TSX:CVE) and Husky Energy (TSX:HSE) — as part of a larger list. The restrained outlook appeared to have no immediate impact on either company’s stock, both of which closed higher.But the outlook raises further questions about how Canadian companies fared in the third quarter of the year, as financial results begin in earnest over the next two weeks.“I think people are generally prepared for some weak results,” said Raschkowan.“The earnings will be one thing, but the real question will be how many companies are suddenly going to face difficulties from a financing standpoint.”On the TSX, financials stocks gained 0.5 per cent with the country’s five biggest banks higher.The health care sector lifted 2.1 per cent as Valeant Pharmaceuticals (TSX:VRX), one of Canada’s most valuable companies, recovered some of its steep declines from the previous session. The company said Thursday it had been subpoenaed by U.S. federal prosecutors seeking information on its drug pricing, distribution and patient assistance program.Valeant shares gained five per cent, or $10.67, to $227.40.On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial average was up 74.22 points at 17,215.97, the S&P 500 rose 9.25 points to 2,033.11 and the Nasdaq added 16.59 points to 4,886.69.Earlier in the day, the Federal Reserve reported that U.S. manufacturing production fell for the second straight month in September.Meanwhile, the U.S. Labor Department reported that employers advertised fewer job openings in August — 5.4 million versus a record high 5.7 million in July — and kept hiring flat, another sign the American jobs market has lost strength since spring.In commodities, the November contract for benchmark crude oil rose 88 cents to US$47.26 a barrel, closing out a week where the price declined five per cent on signs that oversupply is still a problem.November natural gas gave back two cents to US$2.43 per thousand cubic feet while December gold fell $4.40 to US$1,183.10 an ounce.Follow @dj_friend on Twitter. read more

Deadly rose virus which could wipe out British flowers is likely to

A deadly rose virus which wipes out entire flower populations and is impossible to get rid of is likely to come to Britain, the RHS has warned after sponsoring a study into the disease.Scientists sponsored by the Royal Horticultural Society will sequence the genetic code of flowers impacted by the virus in a bid to find a cure and ensure it does not spread to the UK.Recent advances in scientific techniques, such as next-generation sequencing – a high-throughput approach to DNA sequencing –provide new opportunities to improve understanding and future proof against the notorious disease.Considered one of the plant’s biggest threats, the virus  causes deformed plants to grow, and eventually kills the roses it infects. es reddening on newly emerging shoots, excessive thorn production, abnormalities and eventually plant death. It has already spread to India, and it is transmitted by a four-legged microscopic mite transported on plants, insects, wind or contaminated clothing.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––Once the virus strikes it is often no longer possible to grow roses in that area, and famous rose gardens in the US have had to be grassed over.Gerard Clover, Head of Plant Health at the RHS warned that the flower trade could put British gardens at risk, adding: “Rose rosette virus was first reported in the 1940s in Canada and soon afterwards in the USA but the virus is on the move and was most recently reported from India in 2017. The global size and scale of the rose trade only exacerbates the risk. Its prominence on the UK’s plant health risk register means it is considered a very real threat to the UK’s gardens.”The research into the disease is sponsored by the RHS and being conducted by Newcastle University and Fera Science Limited.PhD researcher, Ines Vazquez Iglesias, will analyse hundreds of samples from RHS collections, gardens and nurseries across the UK at Fera’s Sand Hutton research facility with the findings published in 2019.The government has warned of the disease and commended the RHS for its research.Nicola Spence, Defra Chief Plant Health Officer, said: “We want to be the first generation to leave the environment in a better state than we found it and protecting our plants, such as roses, from pests and diseases is a key part of that ambition. “Rose rosette virus is not present in the UK and we are continuously working to ensure that foreign threats are kept away. However, we also need to better understand the threat they pose and this research by the University of Newcastle will provide essential intelligence on how to tackle these emerging pests and diseases.  “Once again, I urge everyone to source their plants from reputable nurseries and to remain vigilant for threats by practising good biosecurity.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Geovariances launches Minestis for mineral resource estimation

first_imgGeovariances has announced the launch of Minestis, its brand new software solution dedicated to mineral resource estimation. Minestis offers “a fast and easy-to-use workflow for domain estimation and mineral resource modeling through a simplified and secure geostatistics-based approach.”“When designing Minestis, our main objectives were: firstly, to offer our customers a new generation mining-focused software solution that non-experts in geostatistics can learn and implement easily; secondly, that this new software ensures the quality and the performances of the geostatistics our leading software Isatis is renowned and referenced for”, Geovariances Software Development Manager François Geffroy says. “As a result, Minestis simplifies resource estimation and quickly delivers reliable estimates.”Minestis provides a workflow which takes the user through every step of its resource modelling project. The software starts with the loading of already built grade shells or geological surfaces and verifies that geological domains are coherent with each other. It goes on with a geostatistics-based estimation process which gives users access to the only parameters they need to control through a smart user interface. It quickly ends up with the production of the recoverable resource figures required for subsequent resource classification.Minestis implements powerful parallelised geostatistical algorithms: kriging, conditional simulations, uniform conditioning and localised uniform conditioning. Additional tools such as automatic variogram fitting or kriging neighborhood analysis, combined with a modern interface, facilitate software use and parameter setting. Early users also reported that Minestis is fast and visual.“The strength of Minestis is that it manages the estimation of geological domains and block models in a coherent way, thus ensuring the quality of resulting estimates”, Geovariances Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Nicolas Jeannée indicates. “Another strength is that Minestis also makes the recommended advanced resource evaluation techniques like conditional simulations or uniform conditioning easy to implement by non-experts in geostatistics. This means users hold all the assets to get the resource figures expected by their company.”And for advanced optional functionalities, Minestis can be advantageously complemented by Isatis through a dedicated link. For the companies which have sponsored the related research program, Minestis enables innovative implicit domain modelling directly from borehole data. It also enables uncertainty assessment on the domain envelopes, which is unique among mining packages. Domain modelling will be publicly released in 2016.last_img read more

VIH un nouveau test de dépistage en vente libre aux EtatsUnis

first_imgVIH : un nouveau test de dépistage en vente libre aux Etats-UnisPour la première fois, un test de dépistage du sida a été autorisé à la vente libre, sans aucune prescription médicale par l’Agence américaine des médicaments (FDA).OraQuick In-Home HI, mis au point par le laboratoire américain OraSure Technologies, est le premier test de dépistage du sida destiné à la vente libre. La mise sur le marché du produit a été autorisée le 15 mai par un comité consultatif de 17 experts de l’Agence américaine du médicament (FDA) unanimes. Ainsi, à partir d’octobre 2012, les résidents des Etats-Unis pourront acheter le dispositif à usage unique dans plus de 30.000 points de distribution. Des essais cliniques effectués en laboratoire mettent en évidence un taux de 92% des cas d’infection détectés avec succès. Des résultats prometteurs qui vont de pair avec l’utilisation relativement simple de l’OraQuick In-Home HIV. Dans un premier temps, le sujet qui souhaite se tester, collecte à l’aide d’un tampon un échantillon de salive au niveau des gencives puis le dispose dans un récipient bien particulier. Le résultat est alors visible au bout de 20 à 40 minutes.Néanmoins, OraSure Technologies reste très prudent quant à la fiabilité de son test. Dans un communiqué, les représentants du laboratoires soulignent l’importance du recul à prendre au regard des résultats. En effet, un résultat positif n’est pas preuve de la séropositivité du patient, mais indique le besoin de confirmation via des tests supplémentaires auprès d’un centre médicale. Par ailleurs, un résultat négatif peut s’avérer inexact, d’autant plus si l’individu a été contaminé au cours des trois mois précédent le protocole de dépistage.Près de 240.000 personnes ignoreraient leur séropositivitéÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Les experts du FDA espèrent que le test, malgré sa marge d’erreur, arrive à détecter plus ou moins 3.800 cas de patients séropositifs par an. “Savoir si on est infecté ou non est un facteur important pour le succès des efforts visant à empêcher la propagation du VIH”, souligne à l’AFP,  Karen Midthun, directrice du centre d’évaluation biologique et de recherche de la FDA. Actuellement, près de 240.000 personnes sur 1,2 million atteintes du sida aux Etats-Unis ignorent leur séropositivité, selon une étude menée par les Centres de contrôle et de prévention des maladies (CDC). En outre, les estimations élèvent le nombre de nouveaux cas d’infections aux Etats-Unis à 50.000 par an. D’où l’importance de mettre à disposition un tel test.Pour l’heure, le prix de l’OraQuick au détail n’a pas encore été dévoilé, toutefois l’AFP, est parvenue à connaitre le prix de gros qui s’élèverait environ à 17 dollars, d’après d’Ashley Buford, porte-parole de la firme de Bethlehem en Pennsylvanie.

Almost half of Americans yawn over 4G LTE

first_img TeliaSonera launches first commercial 4G/LTE network Who needs faster wireless networks? Nearly half of US consumers say they don’t. A new survey finds that nearly half of U.S. consumers feel they just do not need 4G LTE. “Colossal power!” “Scorching speed!” “Take your office across the map!” Promotional slogans about 4G LTE devices from carriers and phone vendors about fourth-generation (4G) Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks apparently are not working. The survey from investment firm Piper Jaffray polled 3,000 individuals, results of which were released in a research note this week by analyst Christopher Larsen. A total of 47% of US consumers in the survey felt they have no need for 4G LTE- and only 15 percent of those polled thought 4G LTE is the best network technology.The Piper Jaffray survey also found that consumers are ambivalent about which U.S. carrier has the best 4G LTE network. Among those polled, 51 percent indicated they don’t know who has the best 4G network, or that all 4G networks are the same.Apple released its first 4G LTE device earlier this year with the third-generation iPad. Apple’s next iPhone 5 is expected to also feature 4G LTE connectivity. “This model will almost certainly include 4G LTE wireless capabilities because it would be innovation suicide to not offer it,” said VentureBeat recently. “Top-notch Android phones have been offering 4G data connections since before the iPhone 4S launched.”Interestingly, more enthusiasm according to poll results was shown toward the word iPhone than discussions of connectivity. The poll asked consumers about Apple’s next iPhone, and found that 55 percent of those surveyed said they are considering purchasing it. Of the 55 percent contemplating the iPhone purchase, 44 percent said they would choose Verizon as their carrier; 29 percent said AT&T; 14 percent were for Sprint; and 13 percent for T-Mobile which is not expected to offer the new smartphone.Larsen said that this mixed bag of carrier choice results is good news for them all. Verizon gains from brand recognition, but the fact that so many consumers don’t have an opinion about the different 4G networks means that there’s still time for other carriers to win more consumer attention. The poll’s results generally show competition opportunities for all carriers regarding 4G LTE.The poll also indicates an odd disconnect between a lack of marketing success in sparking 4G LTE awareness in consumers and actual technology advancements. Carriers are busy expanding their networks and providing more 4G LTE coverage; vendors are busy creating buzz about their devices’ 4g LTE features at tradeshows and technology forums.4G LTE delivers mobile network speeds faster than 3G networks. As of Q4 2011, thirty-eight mobile network operators worldwide had launched 4G LTE networks commercially. According to a Reportlinker.com study released this month, governments worldwide have held 4G spectrum auctions or are planning to in coming years, and many Tier 1 mobile operators are building and deploying commercial LTE services. Key drivers are higher data speeds, simplified all-IP networks and the commercial availability of over 200 4G LTE -enabled devices. For consumers, the 4G LTE technology will enable streaming, downloading, and uploading data and playing online games faster than before. With all this activity, nonetheless, the poll results have come as a rude reminder that American consumers are not, at least as of yet, really focused on 4G LTE.

VIDEO Lady who lets out terrifying Bhorror movie screams during free throws

first_imgApparently this isn’t her first rodeo. This YouTube video of screaming lady was posted 6 years ago. That’s a lot of shrieking. Fans distracting opposing players during free throws is as old as basketball itself, but one Cal State Northridge fan has taken the practice to an entirely different – more annoying – level.During the Matadors roadie at Washington State last week, one Northridge die-hard female fan used terrifying B-horror movie screams in order to distract Cougar players a the stripe. All is normally fair when it comes to fan distractions, but this is borderline ejectionable. Ultimately, all the shrieking in the world couldn’t stop Northridge from  taking the 103-94 L.Also, who travels to away Cal State Northridge basketball games all the way in Pullman, Washington? That’s just weird.Listen to this nightmare fuel.

Missing actor found dead update 2

first_imgThe body of 83-year-old actor and director Nicos Siafkalis, who went missing on Sunday, was found on the beach in Polis Chrysochous 10 to 15 kilometres from his car by a tourist on Tuesday morning.Preliminary investigations ruled out foul play as the cause of death. A post mortem was scheduled for Wednesday at Paphos general hospital.The scene was cordoned off and Siafkalis’ son confirmed that the dead man was his father.A search had been ongoing since Sunday when his son reported the elderly man missing.The ministry of education announced on Tuesday that the upcoming International Festival of Ancient Greek Drama will be held in his memory. The ministry also said his funeral will be covered by state funds.Police officers, divers and volunteers searched for him until darkness fell on Sunday. Early on Monday morning, a police helicopter was also employed to assist in the search.The operation, which covered the Limanaki area in Latsi to the Baths of Aphrodite, went on until 8.30pm on Monday and resumed at 6.30am on Tuesday.The elderly man left his home at 7am on Sunday to go fishing and friends started to worry when he didn’t answer their phone calls later in the day.In his car, a mobile phone, his clothes and other personal items were found. Police seized some items which were located near the dead body such as a small inflatable boat and a fishing rod to facilitate further investigations.Siafkalis was born in Droushia in the Paphos district in 1934.His career started early and he was actively involved in the theatre from the 1960s until his death.In 1952 he took night classes in Cardiff, Wales for six months where a branch of the London Royal Academy of Dramatic art was housed at the time while working in his uncle’s restaurant. Afterwards he studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.During and after his studies he got involved in British theatre, radio, television and cinema.In 1964 and 1965 he spent two years in Athens as a professor, teaching acting at the Costis Michaelides Theatre School.For three years, from 1983 to 1986, he was the artistic director of the Municipal & Regional Theatre of Agrinio, Greece.He recently published a book, My Course in the Theatre, about his career.It describes his time in the UK and lists the dozens of works of ancient Greek drama he directed and presented in Paphos.Most of Siafkalis’ life was devoted to the reorganisation of the Cyprus Centre of the International Theatre Institute.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
