Democratization is a process not an event says SecretaryGeneral Ban

This morning, he addressed the Advisory Board of the United Nations Democracy Fund, which was established in 2005 and awards grants to projects that aim to promote and consolidate new and restored democracies.“As you know better than anyone, democratization is a process, not an event,” Mr. Ban said.“It seeks rule of law over rule of man, it requires respect for civil and political rights, and it demands constant interaction between those who govern and those that are governed.”He also characterized democratization as more of a “marathon than a sprint,” as it is a “long struggle that must be waged by individual citizens, myriad communities and entire nations.”Pledging the UN’s support to those undertaking the “challenge of democratization,” the Secretary-General highlighted that efforts to promote democratic governance are intertwined with the world body’s work in human rights, development and peace and security.The Fund received almost 2,000 project applications for its second round. As of 12 March, it has received nearly $73 million in contributions. 28 March 2008Democratization requires careful nurturing through participation and institutions, despite being on the rise around the globe, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in New York today. read more

HIQA writes to HSE twice over risks to patients in emergency departments

first_imgTHE HEALTH WATCHDOG HIQA had to contact the HSE twice by letter to get more information on how it is mitigating risks to patients in emergency departments who are awaiting transfers to inpatient beds.Information obtained under Freedom of Information legislation by the Medical Independent found that in the second letter, HIQA looked for “further, more fulsome information” from the HSE.The watchdog had written to the HSE with information that had been brought to its attention about ED overcrowding around the country.A response from Ian Carter, the then National Director of Acute Hospitals, to HIQA was deemed to not be adequate, as it did not identify measures to mitigate risks to patient safety.HIQA told the HSE in its letter that it had received “concerning information” about Tallaght Hospital’s ED. It said a senior clinician had also outlined how the ED was “dangerous this week”.HIQA was also advised of ED overcrowding issues in the Cork City area.In the response to HIQA’s second letter, Carter said the 2013 Acute Hospital Access Action Plan had commenced that month (February 2014).Read more in the Medical Independent.Read: Council stresses that Dublin Fire Brigade ambulance review has not been suspended>Read: Firefighters and emergency workers ‘extremely concerned’ about Ireland’s ambulance service>last_img read more

Is Apple planning a hardware release for the iPods 10th birthday

first_imgThe iPod will celebrate its 10th birthday on October 23rd. According to a leaked memo from Best Buy, Apple is carrying out a “Fixture Installation” early on October 21st. A new launch could be on the cards, the question is: will it be a new iPhone, a new iPod, or both?Apparently last time Apple did a fixture installation like this that required a manager be in the store at 6am we got the iPhone 4. So the chances are October 21 is the day we get the iPhone 5. With it being the 10th anniversary it makes sense to do it that weekend alongside an iPod touch update.Of all the dates suggested so far, this one makes the most sense to me due to the anniversary. If true, it means those hoping for a September launch will have to hold out another 7 weeks before signing that new contract and getting shiny new hardware. It also means Deutsche Telekom is way too early with its iPhone 5 pre-order program in Germany.Historically this doesn’t fit with Apple’s timetable of releasing the iPod touch in September. It would also be unusual to see the iPod and iPhone launch on the same day. So the question remains: is the iPhone 5 going to launch this month and a new iPod appears for the anniversary in late October? Or is Apple using the iPod anniversary just to release a new iPhone?Whatever the case, if the Best Buy memo is real then something is definitely being unveiled on October 21 just in time for the weekend.Read more at This is my nextlast_img read more

San Diego County Supervisors OK review of building permit process

first_img Posted: July 24, 2019 San Diego County Supervisors OK review of building permit process Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego County Board of Supervisors Wednesday directed the chief administrative officer to find ways to streamline the building permitting process.Counyt Administrative Officer Helen Robbins-Meyer will return to the board within 180 days with recommendations on:— implementing a self-certification process for engineers, along with permit and California Environmental Quality Act evaluation requirements;— increasing final engineering flexibility and opportunities to expand checklist exemptions for certain permit processes;— implementing a project issue resolution process; and— increasing coordination and accountability between departments.Recommendations will also involve input from a working group featuring industry professionals.Supervisor Jim Desmond, who made the original proposal, said affordable housing is a major problem in the county, due to numerous federal and state regulations.“By speeding up some of the county permitting processes, we can do our part by making housing more affordable,” Desmond said.Supervisor Kristin Gaspar said another reason for the lack of housing is that numerous projects are tied up in environmental litigation.“Environmental attorneys are laughing their whole way to the bank,” she said.Gaspar requested added a working group to Desmond’s proposal, which also received support from building industry representatives during the supervisors’ meeting.Matt Adams, vice president of the Building Industry of Association of San Diego County, said housing production in the county is down, and his organization stands ready to help the county in the streamlining process.“Talk doesn’t get you housing — production gets you housing,” Adams said.Board Chairwoman Dianne Jacob said the board has approved thousands of maps for building projects which haven’t been built, and asked Adams what the impediments were. “We’ve done our job here,” Jacob added.Adams said when it comes to land use and production, developers have to consider if a project is economically viable and if not, “the project is going to sit.”“We can only do so much,” Jacob replied.John Seymour, an executive with the National Community Renaissance building company, said the city of San Diego has an expedited building permit process, and “they save a ton of money.”Seymour said affordable housing developers are risk-averse because of capped rents, and a less discretionary process is better.He also suggested that the county review and update its community plans for zoning.

Fans and mushers celebrate the end of the 2016 Yukon Quest

first_imgDownload Audio Mushers and fans gathered over the weekend to celebrate the completion of the 2016 Yukon Quest in Whitehorse. The event was highlighted by awards and stories from the trail.Tlingit dancers honor Hugh Neff (Photo by Molly Rettig, KUAC -Fairbanks)About a dozen Tlingit dancers paraded onto the stage in fur, feathers, and traditional clothing to congratulate Hugh Neff for winning the Yukon Quest. They thanked him for mentioning Alaska’s native people when he came across the finish line first. Neff was impressed.“I’m a native at heart and I’m a wolf at heart,” Neff said. “It was like a dream popping out of my heart that I got to see flowing around me.”The 48-year-old Tok musher is a long-time Quest veteran. Throughout the race, he repeatedly acknowledged Alaska Natives such as George Attla and John Baker for teaching him how to mush and for producing his line of dogs. Neff said his popular brown dog named Lester is an Inupiaq Eskimo dog.“I really take pride to be running dogs that are created by some of the greatest dog minds in the world,” said Neff. “I’m just lucky all I have to do is play with them and love them.”In a speech to the crowd, Neff said he runs the Quest every year to race against himself.“It’s not about trying to win this thing. It’s trying to be a better musher, being a better northerner,” Neff said.A couple hundred guests showed up at the awards banquet in Whitehorse on Saturday. After racing all the way from Fairbanks, mushers were treated to a big buffet, live Can Can dancers, and lots of prizes.This year’s Yukon Quest contained the usual excitement of a thousand-mile sled dog race. There were midnight chases, moose attacks, miles of bumpy jumble ice, broken sleds, and an epic storm.“Stories. We all have stories,” an attendee proclaimed.Third-place finisher Allen Moore talked about an upgrade he had made to his sled that backfired. He wanted to add some extra stopping power to go down Eagle Summit, so he rigged up a system to lower chains onto his runners with a string. It was working fine until he encountered knee-deep overflow on a creek and had to sit down on the back of his sled.Matt Hall, winner of the Vet Award (Photo by Molly Rettig, KUAC – Fairbanks)“When I did this I didn’t realize I stuck my foot through this cord, now something’s got me hogtied and I’m going through this water and I turn over in the water, laying in the water with the sled over sideways,” Moore said. “The dogs look back at me, what are you doing?”Runner-up Brent Sass won four ounces of gold for being the first musher into Dawson. Sass, Neff, and Moore have chased each other for years. At one point early in the race, they all stopped at a trail cabin to rest around the same time.“All three of us are standing there looking at each other, like ‘What’s your next move gonna be’”, said Sass.He said it was fun competing against friends.“It’s amazing it can be such a competitive sport and atmosphere and to be joking around with guys you want to beat,” Sass said.Sass said he loves the Quest because it’s always a challenge.“After having such a great race last year, and having such a difficult race this year, every year is different and that’s what keeps us coming back,” Sass said.Gaetan Pierrard won the Red Lantern award, a tradition that started so the last-place competitor would have light on the trail. The Yukon resident had a good attitude about the prize.“A souvenir for my first Quest,” Pierrard said. “At least I have something.”He was happy to finish, because the race could have ended a lot earlier. On the first day, he broke his main line and almost lost his team. Pierrard said he learned a lot from the Quest but isn’t sure he’s ready for another.“I’m just gonna enjoy right now and live the moment and not think about the future too much,” said Pierrard.Ninth place finisher Yuka Honda (Photo by Molly Rettig, KUAC – Fairbanks)Japanese musher Yuka Honda said she was happy with her ninth-place finish. She has finished the Quest before, but this one had a special meaning.“This time I was just thinking about my mom so much because she just passed away” Honda said.Her mother asked her to run the Quest again, because it had been a dream of Honda’s for so long.“I try for my mom this time,” said Honda. “Kind of special this year.”Nineteen-year-old Laura Neese won the sportsmanship award for helping out other mushers and bringing joy to the trail.“It was a joy to be out there with all you guys and travel and get to know you,” Neese said. “It’s a great race and thank you so much.”The final competitors to take the stage were George Costanza and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Neff’s two lead dogs each received a bright golden harness and a plate of raw beef.last_img read more

2 journalists killed while reporting on US storm

first_imgFile photo of fallen trees in US. A television news anchor and a camera operator were killed on Monday when a tree in North Carolina fell on their vehicle. Photo: CollectedA television news anchor and a camera operator were killed on Monday when a tree in North Carolina fell on their vehicle as they were covering the effects of a rainstorm in Polk County, officials said.WYFF News anchor Mike McCormick and photojournalist Aaron Smeltzer of the NBC affiliate in Greenville, South Carolina, died after the tree hit their sport utility vehicle on a highway, the station reported.Tryon Fire Chief Geoffrey Tennant said he had just given an interview to McCormick when, minutes later, he received a call about the incident. He arrived to discover the victims were the two men he had just met.”It personally affected me a little bit because I had done an interview with Mr. McCormick about 10 minutes before we got the call, and we had talked a little bit about how he wanted us to stay safe and how we wanted him to stay safe,” Tennant told reporters.The ground was saturated from the rain, and a large tree about 3 feet (1 m) in diameter fell on the journalists’ SUV, apparently as it was driving along Highway 176, Tennant said. When first responders arrived, the engine was running and the transmission was in drive, Tennant said.”It is a freak of nature,” Tennant said. “I think it was a matter of the tree root system had failed and the tree came down.”McCormick had been with the station since 2007, first as a reporter and later as anchor of two Sunday broadcasts, WYFF said. Smeltzer joined the station in February of this year. Both were born in 1982.Polk County is about 90 miles (145 km) west of Charlotte.last_img read more

SAS says 6 day pilot strike cost it 68 million

first_img COPENHAGEN — Scandinavian Airlines says that a six-day pilot strike that led to the cancellation of 4,000 flights and affected more than 370,000 passengers cost 650 million kronor ($68 million).SAS says that the walkout, which ended May 2 when the sides reached a three-year collective bargaining agreement, “negatively impacted” its second quarter, for which it reported a 1.2-billion kronor ($125 million) loss.CEO Richard Gustafson says it “added to the challenges already faced by SAS,” which include tough competition, increasing fuel prices and a weakening Swedish currency.Gustafson said Tuesday the result for the three-month period that ended April 30, “is far from satisfying.”The strike started April 26 after talks collapsed between the airline and SAS Pilot Group, which represents 95% of the company’s pilots in Sweden, Denmark and Norway. << Previous PostNext Post >> SAS says 6 day pilot strike cost it $68 million Share By: The Associated Press Tuesday, May 28, 2019 Tags: Scandinavian Airlineslast_img read more

Study Falling Home Prices Not Improving Affordability

first_imgStudy: Falling Home Prices Not Improving Affordability in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Share With home prices down so far down from their peak and mortgage rates hovering around record lows, many analysts are saying home affordability could hardly be any higher. However, a study released by “”””: shows homes are only truly affordable in about half of the nation’s major cities.[IMAGE]””Despite all of the talk about how homes are more affordable than they have been in decades, buying a home is still a big challenge for many American households,”” said Mike Sante, managing editor for expenses and stagnant wages are preventing median-income households from being able to afford median-income homes, Sante explained. Significant differences in median incomes, as well as costs like property taxes and homeowners insurance, have put homeownership out of reach for many households.For its first ever Home Affordability Study, the site used data from the “”Census Bureau””:, the “”National Association of Realtors””:, the “”National Association of Insurance Commissioners””:, and “”Experian””: to calculate city-specific costs for median incomes, prices, consumer debt, and more. Each city was then graded based on its results, with a “”C”” indicating that someone making the median income would be able to afford a median-priced home.The results showed a median income household would be able to afford a median-priced home in 14 of the nation’s 25 largest metro areas. For some areas, the measurement of home affordability went well beyond the normal metrics used to gauge the housing market.[COLUMN_BREAK]For example, Atlanta, Georgia├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┬Øwhich earned an “”A””├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┬Øbenefits from its relatively low home prices, with its median sales price sitting at less than half the average for all 25 cities. However, the city’s lower than average property taxes and insurance costs, as well as its slightly above average median income, also play a big role in affordability.According to the study’s “”Paycheck Power Rating””├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┬Øa measurement of how much a city’s median income exceeds or falls short of its median home price├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┬ØAtlanta’s median income beats the income needed to buy a median-priced home by a margin of 40 percent.The study also revealed interesting differences in markets. Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for example, has a similar median income and home price as the Twin Cities area in Minnesota. However, Milwaukee’s property taxes are nearly 47 percent higher, earning the city a “”D+”” rating compared to Minneapolis-St. Paul’s “”A-.””Investor activity is creating another problem for some cities. San Diego, a popular retirement destination, has attracted a lot of interest from investors, many of whom are international. These wealthy investors cause a disconnect between the local housing market and local incomes.””We’re seeing a lot of cash deals├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┬Ø27 percent of multiple listing service deals in our recent figures,”” said Donna Sanfilippo, president of the “”San Diego Association of Realtors””: “”Investors are coming back into the market. We’re seeing foreign investment.””These specific issues highlight problems the “”Center for Housing Policy””: (CHP) has been trying to warn the industry about, said.””In many communities there is a fundamental disconnect between the income families have and the costs of buying a home,”” said Jeffrey Lubell, executive director for the CHP. “”Falling house prices haven’t solved the problem. They’ve helped, but they haven’t solved it.””If you can’t afford a home now, it’s not going to get better. This is as good as it gets,”” he continued.center_img October 17, 2012 457 Views Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Census Bureau Home Prices Housing Affordability Investors Lenders & Servicers National Association of Realtors Processing Service Providers 2012-10-17 Tory Barringerlast_img read more
