UN urges Europe and Central Asia to stop sending children to Staterun

29 June 2011Two United Nations entities have urged governments in Europe and Central Asia to immediately end the practice of placing young children in State-run homes for infants because of the risk of neglect and abuse. The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) yesterday launched a campaign against sending children to State-managed homes after two new reports documented abuses of children in such institutions.The reports showed that across Europe and Central Asia, including in States that are members of the European Union (EU), more than a million children and adults are living in long-term residential care, where they languish, often for a lifetime.Hundreds of thousands of babies with disabilities are routinely placed in State-run homes, severely hampering their development, with many suffering in appalling conditions, according to the reports.The report by OHCHR, entitled Forgotten Europeans – Forgotten Rights, outlines international and European human rights standards relevant to the situation of people in institutions.The UNICEF document, entitled At Home or in a Home – Formal care and adoption of children in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, provides an overview of the major trends and concerns about children in formal care and institutions, as well as adoption in 21 countries and one entity in Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia.At a meeting in the European Parliament hosted by Irish legislator Mairead McGuinness, the two UN entities urged governments across the region to make the needs and rights of the youngest children a priority in policy-making, budget allocation and services development, while following international and European standards.The call to action includes restricting placement of children in institutions to short-term emergency measures or a planned stay not exceeding six months – and only when it is absolutely necessary and in the best interests of the child.“Children belong where their best interests are met – in loving, caring homes, not in institutions where we know they all too often receive substandard care,” said Anthony Lake, the UNICEF Executive Director.“We need to support initiatives that help families stay together by increasing their access to social services – and governments need to invest in building stronger social protection systems that reach the most vulnerable families and most disadvantaged communities.”Jan Jarab, OHCHR’s regional representative for Europe, said: “Many Central and Eastern European countries have largely maintained the system of large-scale residential institutions for children of all ages.“Placement of children into institutions – including those under three years of age – is still the society’s main response to disability, poverty or perceived lack of parental skills, rather than a measure of protection from individual abuse, from which these societies often fail to protect children.” read more

CBKs office raises concerns over rise in hate speech

“The active participation and leadership of all patriotic Sri Lankans is essential for the achievement of Reconciliation, Peace and honest,effective, people friendly Governance if we are to attain political stability, economic growth and progress we so richly deserve as a Nation.We must work towards acknowledging the differences and celebrating the richness of diversity in our multi-ethnic, multi-religious country,” ONUR noted.ONUR said that short, medium and long term efforts are underway to address the grievances of all communities and to build a sense of respect, equality and pride in every citizen, living in an inclusive Sri Lanka where each person has the opportunity to enjoy the freedoms that are the right of all citizens.The strictest action must be taken without delay,against persons or groups who act to provoke disharmony by creating divisions among citizens along ethnic and religious lines. President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Ranil Wickrmasinghe and the entire government have categorically reiterated that hate speech will not be tolerated. For the first time in contemporary Sri Lanka, the Government has a stated vision to build One United Nation by promoting Reconciliation and a lasting Peace. The Government is working towards bringing about reconciliation among all communities, making it the highest priority. ONUR, while appreciating the arrest of two individuals from two different communities, accused of hate speech and for inciting racism, urges the relevant authorities to take appropriate action against all such incidents regardless of the social status, ethnic /religious background or political affiliations of the perpetrators.“We note that there are numerous complaints against hate speech and incitement to racism where strong evidence is available yet investigations and prosecutions are pending for some time.We urge the law enforcement authorities to take early action on all these incidents,” ONUR said.ONUR welcomed the President and the Prime Minister’s unequivocal statements that Sri Lanka cannot permit racist or extremist elements from any community to challenge or imperil our chosen path to a stable, prosperous and plural Sri Lanka. The Office for National Unity and Reconciliation (ONUR) headed by former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga has noted with concern, the rise of hate speech in Sri Lanka in the recent past, which challenges the initiatives being taken by the Government to heal the country after decades of bloodshed and destruction.ONUR noted that hate filled expressions and actions by groups with vested interests, resulting in demeaning, denigrating and inciting violence against fellow citizens of various ethnic, religious backgrounds has no place in Sri Lankan society. ONUR said the Government and the people of Sri Lanka are presently engaged in the noble task of rebuilding a society in which Good Governance prevails.It said the challenges faced in realising this are immense.Yet, the new opportunities that have opened up and the favourable socio-political context created since January 2015 must be seized. This is in contrast to the years before 2015 where power brokers in the state fomented communal and ethnic hatred, shielded by a culture of impunity, thereby inciting racism and violence against fellow Sri Lankans. read more

NEC shows 99mm Android laptop concept

first_imgNEC has already shown off a slim, sexy Android phone, but can the company pull off the same manouver with a laptop? Meet the MGX, a new prototype model that pushes the calipers to just 9.9mm — a little more than half as thick as the current MacBook air at its thickest point.Stylistically, the MGX has more in common with a Sharp Zaurus than any of Apple’s products. The laptop features a 7-inch 1024×768 display with multitouch support and weighs in at 350g (slightly more than  a BlackBerry PlayBook). It’s running an older 2.x version of Android, offers Wi-Fi and HSUPA connectivity, and packs a battery that lets you run cord-free for up to ten hours.Android netbooks have been attempted before — in fact, you can pick one up on eBay for less than $100. But it’s a combination that has yet to generate any real interest, and one that even Google itself isn’t pushing. They’d rather you pick up a  Chromebook if you want a Google-powered laptop to toss in your backpack.What separates the NEC MGX from the pack of cheap Shanzai Android notebooks is the fact that its keyboard can fold behind its touchscreen display — which is another key feature. Android apps are, after all, designed to run on tablets or smartphones and if you’ve played with an x86 version of Android on a desktop or laptop you know they don’t generally play well with touchpads or mice.But NEC doesn’t foresee bringing the MGX to market before 2013. That might be a tad too late to make any real impact, considering Asus has already started selling the Eee Pad Slider. It beat the MGX to the punch by two years and offers a more generous 10-inch screen.More at TechCrunchlast_img read more

D’ici 201 jours précisément, ce sont quelque 20 milliards de tweets qui devraient être véhiculés grâce au plus grand rival de Facebook.Selon les données du site GigaTweet qui comptabilise en temps réel le nombre de messages publiés sur Twitter, la barre symbolique des 10 milliards de tweets vient d’être dépassée par le célèbre site de microblogging.Ce sont quelque 50 millions de tweets qui sont envoyés chaque jour alors que la notoriété de Twitter ne cesse de croître.

Garder les ours polaires en captivité pour les protéger

Une idée visant à protéger l’espèce menacée du réchauffement climatique et de son impact sur la fonte des glaces de la banquise arctique.À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Les ours subissent déjà les conséquences de cette inexorable fonte et sont contraints de s’éloigner vers les terres ou des glaces persistantes dans des eaux où le poisson se fait plus rare. “Dans les deux cas, ils font face à un manque de nourriture”, explique au Washington Post le checheur Steven C. Amstrup. A la tête de l’organisation Polar Bears International, il fait partie de ceux qui soutiennent la proposition d’augmenter la population d’ours polaires en captivité.Les chercheurs et écologistes souhaitent repeupler l’espèce en faisant appel à diverses méthodes de reproduction assistée. Et un zoo, celui de Saint-Louis dans le Missouri, est déjà prêt à accueillir des ours polaires. Quelque 20 millions de dollars ont été investis pour reconstituer l’habitat de l’espèce. Sa construction pourrait être achevée en 2017.Mais pour l’heure, un tel projet n’est pas réalisable puisque la loi américaine interdit d’importer des ours polaires aux Etats-Unis. Des exceptions ont été accordées à plusieurs reprises, mais les autorités chargées de la faune ne semblent pas prêtes à modifier la loi.Le 31 mars 2012 à 10:01 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Preparing for Workforce of Tomorrow by linking education business

first_imgThomus Cherry is a Clark College student with a clear path to a $27-an-hour job at SEH America if he so chooses.Cherry, 19, is one of five participants in an SEH pilot program to create a pipeline of trained young people for the company’s technical jobs. SEH, like several area tech companies and other manufacturing companies, is concerned about attracting and retaining a skilled workforce for the future.The manufacturing technician career launch pilot, as it’s been called by the east Vancouver silicon wafer-maker, offers a $12- to $14-an-hour paid apprenticeship at SEH of 25 to 28 hours a week and Clark College tuition covered by the company en route to a technician certification.If the apprentice successfully completes the program, a likely position awaits as a full-time SEH technician with median pay of $27 an hour. The company also offers a tuition reimbursement program for an associate degree and other post-secondary education pursuits.This is the type of corporate and education behavior that would be encouraged and rewarded under legislation being considered in Olympia and backed by Gov. Jay Inslee’s administration. Called “career-connected learning,” the legislation would offer financial incentives for schools to increase enrollment in career launch programs, create career-connected learning programs and hire people who would work as coordinators between companies and community colleges to ensure students are leaving with job-ready skills.This type of coordinated effort to supply a next-generation, technically focused workforce is overdue as wave after wave of skilled workers retire, said Ted Feller, executive director of the Southwest Washington STEM Network. Not enough has been done to fill the remaining vacancies, he said.last_img read more

Camas students organize Camas TED talk

first_imgCAMAS — The spotlight comes with attention, whether wanted or not.Just ask marine biologist David Scholnick. When people think of marine biologists, most think about diving into the sea with marine mammals or pulling golf balls from whales’ blowholes. However, Scholnick said his work is not terribly exciting, even to his family. He has dedicated his career to studying shrimp laden with bacteria.“I’m not the most popular person, or even scientist, in the room,” he said.But something unusual happened more than eight years ago; one of Scholnick’s experiments went viral. He and some colleagues were studying how recent changes in the oceans could potentially affect the ability of marine organisms to fight infections. Since shrimp are active animals in nature, and Scholnick wanted to study how their activity affects immune responses, they built a tiny treadmill for captive shrimp to run on.The once small-time marine biologist drew praise and curiosity from some, and ire from politicians. He was discussed on TV and in Congress.A few years removed from the hoopla, Scholnick, a professor at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Ore., is ready to talk about his time in the spotlight. He will be one of 10 speakers at the first ever TEDxYouth@Camas event, starting at 5 p.m. June 8 at Discovery High School, 5125 N.W. Nan Henriksen Way, Camas. The officially-sanctioned TED event was organized by 18 students in the Camas School District, and the speakers range from scientists to educators to others in the community. The topic of the event is “Seeing the Invisible.”Scholnick’s project was a novelty at first, with an invitation to the “Today Show.” People uploaded videos of the shrimp on the treadmill running to “Eye of the Tiger” and the theme song to “The Benny Hill Show.”Then the attacks started. Republicans used the absurdity of shrimp on a treadmill as an example of government bloat and wasting taxpayers’ money. The project was included in a roundup on Forbes.com of the “Thirteen Silliest Uses Of Taxpayer Money,” after the original article, later removed, wrongly claimed that the shrimp treadmill cost $3 million.last_img read more

Interior minister calls for a comprehensive migration solution

first_imgINTERIOR Minister Constantinos Petrides called Thursday for the need for a comprehensive solution for effective management of migration flows to the EU, pointing out the disproportionate migratory pressures on Cyprus.Speaking during the informal Justice and Home Affairs Council meeting in Helsinki, Petrides also rejected a Franco-German proposal to create a central Mediterranean “Temporary Mechanism” for distributing migrants who arrive on vessels, and called for immediate action on the external dimension of the migration issue.In particular, he highlighted the geopolitical situation in Cyprus, which is substantially affected by Turkey’s illegal occupation of part of the island, as well as Ankara’s attitude, creating disproportionate immigration challenges for the island.Petrides again called on the European partners “to support the efforts of the Republic to manage the situation effectively, stressing the need for effective measures of solidarity in the form of redistributions.”He went on to stress that “Cyprus will support solutions that will address the excessive flows that our country receives, as well as the other eastern Mediterranean countries, like Greece.”Petrides also advocated for immediate action on the external dimension of the migration issue, such as the operation of a European return mechanism, the establishment of more readmission agreements between the EU and non-EU countries, the establishment of a European list of safe non-EU countries, and the establishment of agreements with non-EU countries to establish safe reception and screening centres for those seeking protection.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityEarthquake insurance that fits your future plansCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndo Nicosia will use ‘all diplomatic means at its disposal’ to counter Turkish actionsUndoVarosha move merely a ‘PR stunt’ by Ozersay, expert saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
