Sustainable development at core of Fijis national agenda Prime Minister tells UN

“The world must act quickly and decisively to reverse the environmental degradation of our oceans and seas and the reckless and irresponsible use of their precious resources,” emphasized Mr. Bainimarama as he took the podium.Calling it “a centrepiece of the 71st session and one of our most critical priorities” the Prime Minister said that Fiji would be co-hosting with Sweden, the 2017 UN Conference to Support the Implementation of Sustainable Development, which would focus on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goal 14 – the conservation and sustainable use of oceans, seas and marine resources.“For a small island developing State [SIDS] such as Fiji, this is as pressing as the need to address the challenges of climate change,” he stated, “and deal with the extreme weather events and rising seas that pose such a threat to our way of life in the SIDS and other vulnerable parts of the world.”He pointed out that many millions of people in maritime and coastal communities the world over are looking to Fiji for decisive action on the growing crisis of pollution, overfishing and the loss of marine habitats, saying we “must not fail them.”Mr. Bainimarama said that Fiji came to the UN “with a plea to all nations that have yet to do so to ratify the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.” He noted proudly that Fiji was the first nation in the world to ratify the Agreement and lodge the ratification instruments.“But,” he continued “we also come with the message that Paris must be merely the first step. We are alarmed by scientific predictions that the 2 degree Celsius cap on global warming over pre-industrial levels agreed to in Paris is not enough to save us.”Seven months ago, Fiji was struck by the biggest tropical cyclone ever to make landfall in the southern hemisphere. The Prime Minister called it a terrifying glimpse into the future predicted by experts.“Cyclone Winston – packing winds of more than 300 kilometres an hour – killed 44 of our people and left many thousands homeless,” he spelled out. “Mercifully, it spared our main tourism areas – our principal source of income – so our wider economy remained intact. But if this is what awaits us as global warming triggers weather events that are more frequent and more extreme, then God help us,” he added.In common with other small island developing States, Fiji is facing a nightmare scenario in which “a single event scoring a direct hit could wipe out our economy and set us back for decades.” This would make it impossible for the nation to meet the SDGs. In his address, the Prime Minister stressed the message that the 2-degree cap is not enough. “We need the world to go one better and embrace the 1.5 degree cap that we are calling for in the Suva Declaration by members of the Pacific Islands Development Forum,” he stressed, adding the need for deeper cuts in carbon emissions and more decisive global action than was currently being witnessed.“But as a first step,” he continued “I appeal to you all to ratify the Paris Agreement. And to turn your backs on what I have termed ‘the coalition of the selfish’ – those countries that would see the vulnerable nations battered and submerged rather than alter their pampered, carbon-driven lifestyles.” read more

GuineaBissau Political crisis requires continued UN presence Security Council told

“After several years of long-term investment in the stability of Guinea-Bissau, it is time to consolidate and reap the dividends of our concerted efforts. It is vital that we accompany this process to its completion,” Modibo Ibrahim Touré, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative in Guinea-Bissau told the Security Council. Mr. Touré stressed the importance for the Council to continue to reaffirm the centrality of the Conakry Agreement, reiterating its support to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in its mediation efforts.The Conakry Agreement of 14 October 2016 provides for, among other things, the appointment of a consensual Prime Minister.According to the UN Department of Political Affairs (DPA), Guinea-Bissau has been plagued by chronic political instability since gaining independence in 1974. The DPA provides support and oversight to the UN Integrated Peacebuilding Office for Guinea-Bissau (UNIOGBIS), a special political mission first established in 1999 following a two-year civil war in the country. Since mid-2016, the Mission is headed by Mr.Touré. The main priorities of UNIOGBIS are to support efforts to consolidate constitutional order, further political dialogue and national reconciliation, encourage security sector reform, and promote respect for human rights and the rule of law. On political developments, Mr.Touré said President Jose Mario Vaz dismissed former Prime Minister Umaro Sissoco Embaló and replaced him with Artur Silva.“The absence of a functioning and stable Government for more than three years has limited the ability of UNIOGBIS to effectively and sustainably implement some of its mandated tasks,” said Mr.Touré.Until the completion of the electoral cycle in 2019, Guinea-Bissau remains a country that requires a dedicated UN presence to prevent a further deterioration in the political and security situation at the national level and to avoid any negative spill-over to its neighbours and creating a fertile environment for trafficking to thrive, he noted.“It will be important for the United Nations to remain engaged in peacebuilding efforts in the country while supporting ECOWAS intervention to resolve the political crisis for at least one more year,” he said.Lastly, throughout the past year, the presence of ECOWAS Mission in Guinea Bissau has consistently acted as a deterrent to unauthorized military action and a stabilizing factor in the country, he said, calling on the Council and international donors to support the continued presence of ECOMIB through to the holding of a presidential election in 2019, including by advocating for the renewal of its mandate and the provision of the financial support needed to maintain its deployment. read more

Duplex occupants escape latenight fire in Bagley Downs neighborhood

first_imgVancouver firefighters late Tuesday night were at the scene of a duplex fire in the area of Falk Road and Gibbons Street, in the Bagley Downs neighborhood near Parsley Community Center.Firefighters responded about 11:40 p.m. Tuesday. The first one to arrive radioed that flames were visible but there was too much smoke to see exactly what was burning, according to emergency radio traffic monitored at The Columbian.Firefighters said it was a duplex and, five minutes later, that “all occupants are out of both residences.”A hydrant was nearby. After a backup safety crew was organized, firefighters went inside and said they found no one. Also, occupants of both units said no one was inside.Officials blocked traffic on Falk at Gibbons and Plomondon Street as they brought their engines and hoses to the blaze.Firefighters said just before midnight that it was under control. The fire was confined to the garage and smoke leaked into the living area.Firefighters then focused on finding and dousing areas where flames might have reached in the building, and watching for flareups.Minutes later, a firefighter asked for paramedics with an AMR Northwest ambulance crew to check one occupant who had breathing difficulties.The cause of the fire remains undetermined. A preliminary damage estimate came in at $20,000 between the structure and contents. John Branton: 360-735-4513 or read more

Vote to drive Modi out of power

first_imgChopra (North Dinajpur): With just hours to go before the polls, Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee trained guns on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said if he is taking credit for the air strike, then he should also take responsibility for the killing of 40 jawans who lost their lives in a terror strike in Pulwama on February 14.Addressing an election rally in Chopra on Wednesday afternoon, Banerjee said: “This time it is a very important election. This election is to defeat the BJP. It is to drive out the BJP from power… This election is to make sure that Narendra Modi can never be the Prime Minister of the country again. We must ensure that they (BJP) never come back.” Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataShe further said it is most unfortunate that Modi is taking credit for the air strike. “It is a shame that Modi had asked the first-time voters in an election meeting to exercise their franchise in favour of BJP keeping in mind the action of the Indian Army. We are all proud of the Army and Modi is taking credit for their feats. He should then also take responsibility for the death of the jawans and will have to answer whose callousness had led to the unfortunate incident. The Centre had the information that there could be an attack but still no action was taken to save their lives,” she asked. She also alleged that all the institutions have lost their sanctity because of constant intervention from the saffron party. “The integrity and credibility of the agencies are being questioned because of BJP,” she maintained. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateBanerjee said BJP is trying to divide between the people of the Hills and plains. “When Darjeeling was burning, Modi did not come to solve the problem nor did the BJP MP was seen anywhere. They have now come to get votes and win the election.” The Chief Minister stated that in the past four-and-a-half-years, Modi had not done anything for India. “Note ban is a curse and has affected thousands of poor people. Many have lost their jobs. The unemployment is mounting and he had made a false promise that 2 crore people will get jobs per year. The economic condition of the country has turned from bad to worse. But he is unperturbed and busy in making foreign trips.” Banerjee urged people not to waste their votes by casting them in favour of BJP, CPI(M) or Congress. “Two Congress leaders, one in Berhampore and another in Jangipur are receiving support from the RSS. Congress gets support from BJP and CPI(M). A Congress worker attends his party meetings in the morning, CPI(M) in the afternoon and BJP in the evenings,” she alleged. The TMC supremo said Amar Singh Rai, the local candidate, is a son of the soil and will do all-round development in Darjeeling. Chopra falls under Darjeeling Lok Sabha seat where the election will be held on April 18.last_img read more

We don’t know what features this new connector will provide to third parties beyond allowing physical keyboards to be connected while the iPad is in portrait mode (which, by the way, opens the door for a cool retro mini-arcade cabinet — just saying, third-party manufacturers!).Lastly, the new Apple Pencil 2 will not need to be connected to a physical port to work. Since Apple will likely drop the Lightning Port from its new iPad Pro 2018 in favor of USB-C, the new Pencil will automatically pair and charge wirelessly, just like the AirPods.Stay tuned for more iPad Pro rumors as we get closer to launch, which should be sometime later this month.Surface Pro 6 vs. iPad Pro: What Should You Buy?iPad Pro Rumors: What to Expect from Apple’s Next TabletBest iPad Apps – Fun, Useful, Must Have Apps for Your Tablet by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoGrepolis – Free Online GameGamers Around the World Have Been Waiting for this GameGrepolis – Free Online GameUndoTODAYPolice Identify Girl Licking Ice Cream Tub In Viral VideoTODAYUndoMy Food and FamilyHealthy, Homemade Drunken Thai Noodles In Just 20 MinutesMy Food and FamilyUndoVerizon WirelessThis new phone will blow your mind.Verizon WirelessUndo247 SportsThe Highest-Paid NBA Players In 2019, Ranked247 SportsUndoAdvertisementlast_img read more

A “”Loan Officer Survey””: conducted by the “”Federal Reserve””: muddied the trend by fielding mixed reviews for lending conditions, which respondents said had stayed the same from October.center_img in Data, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing February 28, 2012 432 Views last_img read more

Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute ri

first_img Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away Comments   Share   The Arizona Cardinals may welcome a familiar face to their ranks in the next few days.According to Chris Hamblin, the Cardinals extended an offer to former offensive coordinator Todd Haley, though the spot offered is unclear.Under Haley’s offense, the Cards produced one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL, tying for third place in their 2008 Superbowl run. In that same season, the Cardinals posted a franchise-high 427 total points and were fourth in the NFL in overall offense, aided by their second-ranked passing offense. After the Superbowl run, Haley was offered the head coaching position at the Kansas City Chiefs, where he posted an overall record of 19-26 and led the Chiefs to one playoff appearance.The Jets are also rumored to be interested in Haley, said Hamblin. New York is believed to be considering him as an offensive coordinator or, possibly, a head coach.Haley’s name was also floated around during the Arizona State head coach search, though no offer was made.

Second play is a Rashard Mendenhall run that was good for 22 yards. Ofense? Neat. 14:48 left in second quarterThis sums up what happened on third down:perfect play design, perfect pass but someone forgot to tell Roberts what the “receive” part of “wide receiver” means— doug620 (@doug620) August 25, 2013 Oh, and you think Darnell Dockett is looking to make a statement against an offense led by former Cards coach Ken Whisenhunt? 13:30 left in third quarterChargers, now led by QB Charlie Whitehurst (remember when Whiz and the Cards were after that guy? Wow), get the ball to start the half. First team defense still on the field, which for some reason still includes Jerraud Powers. 13:09 left in second quarterDefense does its job that series, holding the Chargers to a three-and-out. Punt is fair caught by Patrick Peterson, and the Cards will take the ball at their own 34. 6:10 left in third quarterChargers respond to Arizona’s touchdown with one of their own. Whitehurst leads a very quick and efficient drive, and that won’t make Cards’ DC Todd Bowles or coach Bruce Arians too happy.21-7 Chargers. Top Stories 3:00 left before kickoffNational anthem done, media meal eaten (great mac & cheese tonight, by the way), and a “sellout” crowd in its seats ready for this one. As for the game, it is the third preseason contest of the season which, for the most part, means it’s the most important of the four. The starters are expected to play into the second half, so it will be interesting to see how they do against a team that, like them, is entering the season with middling expectations. 9:29 left in fourth quarterStanton hits D.C. Jefferson for a short gain (Jefferson getting real involved lately) and it’s now 4th and 1 at the Arizona 44. Cardinals are going for it.12:36 left in fourth quarterDefense forces a punt, which Mike Thomas returns to the Arizona 25. End of third quarterChargers have the ball on their own 24 facing a 3rd and 5. It’s also now the fourth quarter of a preseason game, so…yeah. 3:36 left in third quarterDrew Stanton and the second team offense entered the game, and they got the ball near midfield before disaster struck in the form of D.C. Jefferson getting hit while making a catch, which forced the ball into the air and then into the arms of San Diego’s Andre Gachkar. There are many words one could use to describe this game from Arizona’s perspective, and most are probably not suitable for this website. So, we’ll just say it’s been rather bad. 8:46 left in third quarterThink Carson Palmer is frustrated tonight? He’s had receivers stop routes, drop touchdown passes and otherwise misplay other pretty easy catches. The latest miscue comes from Andre Roberts, who looks to have caught a nicely thrown ball before fumbling down the field. It was ruled incomplete on the field, but the Chargers challenged the call. 9:13 left in third quarterCardinals are moving the ball with Alfonso Smith picking up good yardage on the ground, but his latest carry may come at a pretty high cost. Rookie guard Jonathan Cooper is down on the field, looks like this could be a knee injury. Doesn’t look good.Cardinals managed to go virtually unscathed through the first two preseason games…tonight, not so fortunate. 2:11 left in third quarterAndre Ellington returns the ball 35 yards to the Arizona 33. THey’ll start from there. Oh, and Ryan Williams is in the game and got a carry. :57 left in third quarterSeries ends when Nate Potter gets destroyed attempting to block, which led to Thomas Keiser destroying Drew Stanton. 2:00 left in second quarterThe two minute warning arrives with the Chargers driving at the Arizona 37. Defense not able to come up with much pressure of late. 9:41 left in first quarterThe Cards netted all of three total yards on their drive, and punt it away after Palmer’s third-down pass falls incomplete.Worth noting the QB was hit again, as the offensive line seems to be struggling with keeping Palmer upright. Big — and concerning — change from the first two games. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 8:46 left in third quarterRefs overturn the call and rule it a fumble, but say it was clearly recovered by Roberts so it’s Arizona’s ball at the San Diego 16. How ’bout that. 11:10 left in first quarterChargers don’t go very far, and a third down pass falls incomplete (and would have been well short of a first down had it been caught. Oh Ken Whisenhunt, your offense slays me. Anyway, Nick Novak’s 51-yard field goal attempt is no good, and the Cards take over on their own 41. 5:47 left in first quarterRivers connects with Woodhead for a first down, and the Chargers’ drive continues. Cards’ defense doing very little of note so far, generating little pressure and not exactly sticking to receivers.center_img Punt is fair caught at the San Diego eight. 10:42 left in third quarterDefense gets a stop, and a 45-yard punt is returned 24 yards by Patrick Peterson. Offense back on the field, beginning at the 30. 0 Comments   Share   End of first quarterWell this is a bit better. Running game is picking up yards and Palmer has looked alright. Of course, for the second-straight week a big pass play to Fitz was called back due to a holding penalty on Levi Brown, so that’s not good. Also not good tonight: Levi Brown. 4:34 left in fourth quarter 2:44 left in first quarterJavier Arenas takes the kickoff tot he 23, which is where Arizona’s offense will go to work. And while it’s been nice of them to pay homage to Ken Whisenhunt by looking incompetent, no doubt folks in red would like to see something happen here. 13:06 left in first quarterDrive stalls, though, after Palmer is hit for the first time this preseason and a third down pass to Patrick Peterson falls incomplete. Dave Zastudil’s punt is blocked, and now the Chargers have the ball on the Arizona 34. Oops. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact End of gameChargers take a few knees and that’ll do it. Chargers win 24-7, and the Cardinals looked bad at best, inept at worst in the process. Let’s hear what they have to say. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 10:22 left in second quarterMatt Shaughnessy pressures Rivers, whose throw is tipped and picked off by linebacker Jasper Brinkley. Nice job by the D coming up with the turnover, let’s see if it provides the offense with a spark. Cards’ ball on their own 47. 4:20 left in second quarterUgh.Cardinals get into the red zone and then, on third down, watch as a perfectly thrown ball by Palmer is dropped by tight end Rob Housler in the end zone. Because, you know, that’s how things are going tonight.Then, to add insult to insult, Matt Carpenter’s field goal attempt is blocked. How’s your Saturday night treating you? Ryan Lindley, who is not guaranteed a roster spot, is now in the game at quarterback. Ryan Williams is also in, so there’s some level of intrigue. But that’s about it. 9:37 left in second quarterPalmer hits Fitz for a 14-yard gain, and there is no penalty so it actually counts! Alfonso Smith runs for nine on the next play, and the Cardinals are moving the football. 2:19 left in third quarterSan Diego drive stalls, but Novack comes in and boots a 50-yard field goal through the uprights. 24-7 visitors. Incomplete pass leads to a punt, which is fair caught at the 13. 2:00 left in fourth quarterIt’s the two minute warning and the Chargers have the ball at their own 45. At this point the goal seems to be to run out the clock and get out of here. I’m not opposed to the plan. 8:19 left in third quarterPalmer immediately hits Michael Floyd with a nicely-thrown ball in the back of the end zone, and the second-year WR does a great job of getting his feet and toes in bounds for the score. It’s the first Cardinals TD pass in this stadium since Week 6 last year against the Bills, and even though it doesn’t count you can’t help but smile a bit.14-7 Chargers. 6:37 left in fourth quarterWe’re into the fun part of the game now. Chargers have the ball deep in their territory with a QB I’ve never heard of. And many a fan is heading for the exit. 11:51 left in second quarterCards go three-and-out. It wasn’t pretty. Long punt return sets the Chargers up at the Arizona 45. :25 left in second quarterUhhh, where do we start? Cards get Ryan Mathews to fumble the ball at around the one-yard line, it is scooped up by Rashad Johnson who, upon getting up and nearly tackles, tries to lateral to Sam Acho. Because, you know, Acho was ready to run 100 yards to the end zone. Anyway, that ball is coughed up, recovered by San Diego and taken into the end zone.And then Levi Brown whiffs on blocking Dwight Freeney, who levels Carson Palmer to end the first half. 14-0 Chargers, and it feels plenty worse than that.last_img read more
