COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — Shocks from deadly suicide bombings on Easter Day in Sri Lanka are still reverberating throughout its economy in the worst crisis since the South Asian island nation’s civil war ended in 2009.The blasts that killed more than 250 people were blamed on Islamic extremists. They have devastated Sri Lanka’s vital tourism industry, source of jobs for many, and are hindering foreign investment.Sri Lanka’s economy was already in trouble, amid a political crisis, its currency under pressure from a growing national deficit and rising debt. The attacks added to those challenges.The worst hit have been people, many of them self-employed, living close to the brink of poverty, economists say.Growth is forecast to fall to 3% this year, way below the average in recent years of over 6%.The Associated Press
Taking the floor immediately after his election, Mr. Kutesa, who is Minister for Foreign Affairs of Uganda, said that today, “our world continues to be confronted with different challenges of global reach and impact,” including poverty and hunger; unemployment; myriad impacts of climate change; armed conflicts; and emerging security threats such as transnational organized crime, terrorism, piracy and human trafficking. “Collectively, we must continue to take concerted action to address these challenges. This is what has made the United Nations a strong, unique and indispensable organization,” he said, proposing that theme of the 69th session would be: “Delivering on and Implementing a Transformative Post-2015 Development Agenda.”That theme, Mr. Kutesa continued, builds on the important work and progress being made in the current session. It underscores the need to focus, not only on delivering or agreeing the post-Millennium Development Goal (MDG) agenda, but also, and most importantly, on ensuring its effective implementation.“We shall have to address the means of implementation, in terms of financial resources, technology development, transfer and capacity-building. This will require a strengthened global partnership,” he said, adding that the ultimate objective should be to formulate a transformative agenda that supports global solutions, guides national development efforts, and empowers people to improve their livelihoods and determine their own future.“I am motivated by putting people at the centre of everything we do. I am motivated by the need for socio-economic transformation,” he declared, looking forward to working with all Member States to develop an agenda that will eradicate poverty and hunger, create sustained and inclusive growth, employment and better livelihoods for all.Offering his congratulations to Mr. Kutesa, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon paid tribute to his “wide-ranging experience to the job – lawyer, parliamentarian, finance minister and foreign minister.” Mr. Ban went on to say that the position of Assembly President “demands a variety of skills” – bridge-building among all UN Member States; patience to guide the body through lengthy and complex negotiations; and “as a quiet guide, a messenger, a seeker of consensus.” He said that a General Assembly President is guided above all by the values, principles and obligations of the UN Charter – which will celebrate its 70th anniversary during Mr. Kutesa’s term. “These many roles will also be especially important during the Assembly’s upcoming session, when many critical streams of work will converge and reach moments of truth,” he added.Mr. Ban said that the Organization’s efforts to accelerate its work towards the MDGs will enter the home stretch, and discussions among Member States on the period beyond 2015 will move towards what is hoped will be an inspiring yet practical vision and a concise set of sustainable development goals.“And on the grave overarching challenge of climate change, the climate summit on September 23rd and conference of parties in Lima in December will be key moments to mobilize solutions on the ground and ambition for a new global agreement next year,” he said.Underscoring that the 69th session will take place amidst a period of “great consequence for the well-being and shared fate of people and the planet,” the Secretary-General urged cooperation to “keep ambition high and meet the expectations of the billions across the globe who look to the Assembly, this house of all nations, for dialogue, decisions and action to bring about the world we want and a life of dignity for all.”In his remarks, current General Assembly President, John Ashe, said that his successor would be expected to guide the post-2015 development process – “a mammoth task” – throughout the 69th session, so that at the start of the 70th session, Member States are well-positioned to adopt a new global development framework that is ambitious, focused and leads to meaningful change. “Over the next three months, my team and I will continue ‘setting the stage’ for the new agenda, including by convening a two-day high-level stocktaking event on September 8 and 9,” he said, explaining that the event would enable Member States and other stakeholders to share their views on inputs to the Secretary-General’s Synthesis report that will form the basis of the intergovernmental negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda. Made up of all the 193 Member States of the United Nations, the General Assembly provides a forum for multilateral discussion of the full spectrum of international issues covered by the UN Charter. It meets in regular session intensively from September to December each year, and thereafter as required.
Destruction in Salah Ed Din neighbourhood of Aleppo, Syria. Photo: OCHA/Josephine Guerrero “These incidents demonstrate the undeniable fact that this conflict has repeatedly exacted its heaviest toll on civilians,” said Paulo Sérgio Pinheiro, Chair of the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic, in a press release issued today by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).“This flagrant disregard for international humanitarian law is not new, but rather is the continuation of a well-established trend of unlawfully attacking medical sites and personnel, places of refuge, and infrastructure necessary for civilian life,” he stressed. Specifically, the Commission condemned in the strongest terms recent attacks on civilians and civilian infrastructure, notably on hospitals and clinics in Aleppo city, and on a camp for internally displaced persons in Idlib. “Aerial bombardments, ground shelling and rocket fire have consistently been used in deliberate, indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks on areas where Syrians civilians live and where they struggle to survive,” the Commission said. Moreover, the Commission emphasized that since the attacks against Al-Quds hospital in Aleppo governorate on 27 April, there have been more than a half dozen attacks against other medical facilities in the area, all of which are specifically protected sites under international humanitarian law. Scores of civilians and medical personnel have been wounded or killed in these attacks, and the attack on 5 May on the Kamounah camp for IDPs in Sarmada, Idlib, also reportedly killed and injured dozens of civilians. In recent weeks, markets, bakeries and a water station have also been aerially bombarded. With the one supply route still open to opposition-controlled areas of Aleppo city, the destruction of food, water and medical supplies raises grave concerns for the civilians within, the Commission stressed. “At a time in which the cessation of hostilities agreement has increasingly deteriorated, it is paramount that all parties to the conflict and those States seeking a peaceful resolution, demand civilian protection measures be taken,” said the Commission, calling on all parties to cease the unlawful attacks on civilian areas, especially humanitarian locations and specially protected sites under international humanitarian law. The Commission said it has repeatedly noted that international humanitarian law’s foundational principle of distinction – which underlies a number of war crimes – requires all parties to a conflict to distinguish between lawful and unlawful targets. The recent unlawful attacks are violations of international humanitarian law, and some are war crimes, the Commission said. “Failure to respect the laws of war must have consequences for the perpetrators,” Mr. Pinheiro stressed. “Accountability must be part of the process of returning Syria to peace. Until the culture of impunity is uprooted, civilians will continue to be targeted, victimized and brutally killed.” The Commission said it strongly supports all efforts to find a political solution to the conflict, including a return to a full cessation of hostilities. It added that it remains committed to fulfilling its mandate to investigate and document all violations occurring in the context of the Syrian armed conflict, regardless of who commits them. The Commission was established by the Human Rights Council in August 2011 to investigate and record all violations of international human rights law and allegations of crimes against humanity and war crimes. The Commission is also tasked with identifying, where possible, those responsible for these violations with a view to ensuring that perpetrators are held accountable. In addition to Mr. Pinheiro, the Commission consists of Karen Koning AbuZayd, Special Adviser on the Summit on Addressing Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants, and Carla del Ponte and Vitit Muntarbhorn, who serve as Commissioners. The Commission will present an oral update to the Human Rights Council in Geneva during an interactive dialogue at its 32nd session in June.

Spitzer découvre une planète potentielle plus petite que la TerreLes astronomes de la NASA ont annoncé avoir détecté une nouvelle exoplanète potentielle grâce au télescope spatial Spitzer. Baptisée UCF-1.01, celle-ci est localisée à quelque 33 années-lumière de notre Terre, ce qui pourrait faire d’elle la planète, plus petite que la nôtre, la plus proche de notre système solaire.C’est une découverte inédite qui vient d’être réalisée à l’aide du télescope spatial Spitzer. En effet, au cours des dernières années, de nombreuses planètes orbitant autour d’autres étoiles ont été identifiées. Néanmoins, peu d’entre elles se sont avérées plus petites que la Terre. Or, le télescope spatial qui n’avait jusqu’ici servi qu’à étudier les exoplanètes déjà connues, vient peut-être de permettre d’en découvrir une nouvelle. Une planète dont la taille équivaudrait environ à deux-tiers de celle de la Terre, d’après les astronomes de la NASA. Mais ce n’est pas sa seule particularité.Si l’on en croit les premiers calculs des scientifiques, cette exoplanète potentielle, baptisée UCF-1.01, serait située à environ 33 années-lumière de nous. Une distance qui pourrait faire d’elle, l’exoplanète plus petite que la Terre, la plus proche du système solaire jamais découverte. “Nous avons trouvé de fortes preuves de l’existence d’une planète très petite, très chaude et très proche”, a confirmé dans un communiqué Kevin Stevenson de la University of Central Florida à Orlando. Toutefois, c’est totalement par hasard que cette découverte a été faite.En effet, Stevenson et ses collègues étaient en train d’étudier une exoplanète de la taille de Neptune GJ 436b, déjà connue pour orbiter autour d’une naine rouge baptisée GJ 436, lorsqu’ils ont obtenu d’étranges résultats. Dans les données de Spitzer, les astronomes ont noté une légère baisse dans la quantité de lumière infrarouge rayonnant depuis l’étoile, qui n’était pas causée par GJ 436b. Une analyse plus en détail a alors permis de montrer que les baisses étaient périodiques, suggérant qu’une seconde planète pouvait orbiter autour de l’étoile et bloquer une fraction de son rayonnement. Une planète recouverte de magmaC’est d’ailleurs grâce à ce type de procédé que les autres instruments de la NASA détectent d’ordinaire de nouvelles exoplanètes. Dans le cas de UCF-1.01, les résultats suggèrent que la planète ferait environ 8.400 kilomètres de diamètre et orbiterait étroitement autour de GJ 436 à environ sept fois la distance existant entre la Terre et la Lune. Une “année” sur cette planète équivaudrait ainsi à 1,4 jour sur Terre. Et au vu de la proximité d’avec son étoile, la surface de l’exoplanète connaitrait des températures supérieures à 600 degrés Celsius. Si UFC-1.01 a un jour eu une atmosphère, elle s’est ainsi sans doute évaporée depuis. D’après les chercheurs, au vu de ces premiers éléments, la nouvelle exoplanète potentielle pourrait ressembler à un monde géologiquement mort et criblé de cratères à l’instar de Mercure. Mais Joseph Harrington, co-auteur du papier suggère une autre possibilité, celle selon laquelle l’extrême chaleur aurait fait fondre la surface de l’exoplanète. “La planète pourrait même être recouverte de magma”, explique t-il ainsi. Par ailleurs, les chercheurs ont également noté l’existence d’une troisième planète potentielle, nommée UCF-1.02.Une découverte qui reste à confirmer À lire aussiDes chercheurs auraient découvert l’origine de la mystérieuse lumière verte observée par la NASACependant, même les instruments les plus sensibles sont pour l’heure incapables de mesurer la masse d’exoplanètes aussi petites que UCF-1.01 et UCF-1.02, qui pourrait mesurer à peine un tiers de la Terre. Or, connaitre la masse est indispensable pour confirmer la découverte. C’est pourquoi les auteurs du papier préfèrent pour l’instant rester prudents en parlant d’exoplanètes “candidates”. “J’espère que les futures observations confirmeront ces résultats excitants, qui montrent que Spitzer peut être capable de découvrir des exoplanètes aussi petites que Mars. Même après neuf ans dans l’espace, les observations de Spitzer continuent de nous ouvrir de nouvelles et importantes voies scientifiques”, a commenté Michael Werner, du Jet Propulsion Laboratory de la NASA à Pasadena en Californie.Le 20 juillet 2012 à 10:25 • Maxime Lambert

It’s got a great engine that sounds incredible but the chassis was always a bit of a let-down for something that was marketed as being sporty and as such, it was never really embraced by the motoring public.Fast-forward to 2019 and the Detroit Auto Show and Lexus appears to have taken people’s criticism at least somewhat to heart and is offering up a re-tooled and refreshed RC F and it’s also bringing out a limited Track Edition for those who really want to stick it to the folks from Munich and Stuttgart. How does it look on paper?Well, to start, Lexus has kept the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8, and now it makes 472 horsepower and 395 foot-pounds of torque. That works out to a bump of just 5 horsepower and 6 ft-lbs, which isn’t much but when paired with the car’s new, more aggressive 3.13 ratio rear end (shortened up from 2.93), your butt dyno should feel the difference.Enlarge ImageLexus’ 2020 RC F Track Edition is a high performance coupe for those who refuse to sacrifice comfort and reliability. Lexus Lexus decided to go a little further down the performance rabbit hole with the RC F Track Edition. First and foremost, it managed to shed some pounds in the quest to make the car more agile, 176 pounds to be specific. That’s not nothing in a modern vehicle, particularly when you combine that with a claimed added 58 pounds of additional downforce courtesy of the new rear spoiler.One of the most significant upgrades for the Track Edition comes in the form of Brembo-sourced carbon ceramic brakes. These exotic stoppers combined with the lightweight 19-inch forged wheels from BBS account for 55 of the Track Edition’s missing pounds. Because of all the lightweight materials, changed gearing and launch control, the Track Edition can make the sprint to 60 miles per hour in under 4 seconds.If you absolutely must have the most sports-focused Lexus since the LFA, you can get it in one of two colors: Ultra White or Matte Nebula Gray. A red leather interior with red carbon-fiber accents is standard.Both the 2020 Lexus RC F and the RC F Track Edition are set to go on sale sometime in Q2 of 2019 with pricing to be announced closer to the on-sale date.

The cast and crew of the Animal Planet TV show Finding Bigfoot is in Bethel to record eyewitness accounts of the creature known locally as “Hairy Man.”Download AudioFrieda Bean was on a boating trip to Three Step Mountain, riding up the twisting Kwethluk River with her husband, when she says something caught her eye on the treeline.Matt Moneymaker to the left doing his bigfoot call. James “Bobo” Fey to his right. (Photo courtesy Erica Williams)“I saw a figure of bigfoot just standing there, staring at me eye to eye. It was a figure of a human being but way bigger, the head was bigger, rounder, and the arms were bigger too. And hairy,” says Beans.Beans says she could barely make sense of what she saw.“At first I thought it was a sight of a spirit. Nobody any bigfoot stories at the time,’ says Beans.But many in the region grew up hearing stories of the “hairy man” or “Miluquyuliq” as it’s often called in Yup’ik. A hairy humanoid creature known to throw things like it’s own feces, sticks or rocks at anyone who comes too close. Recently, a local newspaper, the DeltaDiscovery began printing a series of witness accounts like these. That caught the attention of co-producer Natalie Hewson.“We chose the YK Delta because there are many, many, stories that have come out of the area. There have been news reports, newspaper reports. So with that many reports in one area, it was a big point of interest so we decided to come out here,” says Hewson.At the Bigfoot gathering, about 100 interested locals begin arriving to listen to what the gathering has to offer. They are asked to sign release forms before going into the conference room.After the cameras were set up and the audience was in place, the shooting begins. The limelight shone while the cameras began rolling, the stars of the show, Bobo and Matt Moneymaker enter with applause.The media was asked not to record as the cast began asking the audience members whether or not they’ve had an encounter with Sasquatch. Half a dozen hands go up and the TV cameras reset on them as they begin telling their stories in front of everyone. Some say they saw a “Hairy Man,” others experienced mysterious encounters, and others relayed secondhand accounts.Elizabeth Roll of Bethel says what we hear, only scratches the surface.“Something like this I think is only just the beginning of the iceberg. If you really went to every village and talked to people there, you’d probably hear 5 or 10 stories. I think anything’s possible and there sure seems to be a lot of sightings around,” says Roll.Some are skeptical, while others believe that so many sightings could only mean there’s something out there. Something big, humanlike, and hairy.The audience then left while the cast filmed a scene with the witnesses, documenting the locations of the encounters.Hewson says now her team will venture into the YK Delta wilderness, to film at some of the locations near Bethel. Whether or not the show finally finds bigfoot in the Delta, she says the journey itself is worth it.“I think whether or not Bigfoot exists is a very interesting subject. There are a lot of things out there that people have seen that you can’t quite explain, and when you can’t explain something we want to try to figure out what it is. There’s people all over the world that have stories of seeing a Bigfoot-like creature. So I think it’s very important for us to continue the search and try to figure out what this is,” says Hewson.Hewson say’s the material they gather could be used before the end of this season of Finding Bigfoot. Whenever it airs, the show will be the biggest venue yet for the age-old tale of Miluquyuliq.

Opposition parties on Monday took the chance to criticise the government ahead of Labour Day, marked annually on May 1, while Sek union called for faster reform.Main opposition, communist Akel, said global capitalism was facing the biggest crisis in its history and that “the conquests” of the second half of the 20th century “the result of hard and often bloody struggles of workers are being overturned” while economic inequalities were being exacerbated around the world.In Cyprus, it said, the Anastasiades government “insists on dogmatically oriented neoliberal logic” and wants to dump the burden of the economic crisis on to the workers exclusively.“Cyprus is listed as the country with the most dramatic widening social inequality in recent years in the EU,” the party said, while the recorded loss in purchasing power of wages now stands at 2002 levels.One in four young people are unemployed and long-term unemployment was well above the European average, it added, while spending on health and social protection were among the lowest in the EU.Opposition Diko agreed saying workers’ rights have been hit hard, due to the economic crisis, with unemployment skyrocketing, especially among young people.“The Cypriot economy not only has not overcome its problems, but also faces new challenges, and all steps have to be taken to correct the mistakes of the past and address key issues now,” it said.Sek union called for the speeding up of reforms and respect for collective agreements. It called for decent working conditions and steps to be taken to put an end to “the emerging form of precarious employment that replaces permanent jobs with the method of purchasing services, which affects social rights and benefits”.The union also called for strengthening the labour inspection department to clamp down further on those who employ illegal workers.In addition, it wants to see the adoption of measures for equal treatment of women at work with fair promotions and a better work-life balance for those with families. Young people, it said should organise themselves into trade unions to improve their collective bargaining power.
