Ban welcomes steps by UN maritime agency to limit carbon emissions from

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki moon has welcomed the steps agreed upon today by the members of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to address greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping.According to a statement issued by Mr. Ban’s spokesperson, the steps include: efforts to limit sulphur emissions; a mandatory data system for fuel consumption; strengthened implementation of energy-efficiency regulations; and a road map for developing by 2023 a comprehensive IMO strategy on reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from ships.“Welcoming these important steps, the Secretary-General calls for urgent and ambitious action to limit the greenhouse gas emissions from global shipping [which] are projected to rise significantly given the critical role that shipping plays in the global economy,” said the statement.Further to the statement, Mr. Ban called on IMO members, in partnership with the maritime industry, to promote further progress on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from ships to contribute to the objective of the Paris Agreement on climate change, which enters into force on 4 November 2016.For its part, the IMO, which, as a specialized UN agency, is the global standard-setting authority for the safety, security and environmental performance of international shipping, called the new mandatory requirements important milestone on the road to controlling greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping.The requirements were adopted by the IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee, (MEPC) meeting in London for its 70th session (24-28 October). IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim said the new requirements sent a clear signal that IMO was ready to build on the existing technical and operational measures for ship energy efficiency.“The data collection system will equip IMO with concrete data to help it make the right decisions, as well as enhancing its credentials as the best placed and competent forum for regulating international shipping,” Mr Lim said.According to IMO, the new mandatory data collection system is intended to be the first in a three-step approach in which analysis of the data collected would provide the basis for an objective, transparent and inclusive policy debate in the MEPC. This would allow a decision to be made on whether any further measures are needed to enhance energy efficiency and address greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping. If so, proposed policy options would then be considered. read more

Big minibuses enjoy Indian Summer in September

* Big mini buses up 49.6% to 4,217.* Coach registrations down 3.0% to 1,100 * Small mini buses still sliding, down 22.5% to 4,025.* Big buses continue to slide, down 27.5% to 2,325 units for the rolling year. “September registrations once again show that it’s wise not to read too much into one month’s figures,” said Christopher Macgowan, SMMT chief executive.   “Strong registrations for big mini buses account for the improvements across the whole mini bus sector.   High coach registrations in September reflect the end of the Euro 3 derogation period and the delivery of part of a big order from Northern Ireland that will continue to affect figures for the immediate future.   Double-deck and full-size single-deck bus registrations continue to decline as some big buyers delay replacement programmes.   Caution is still the name of the game and the rolling year data is the least volatile guide to registrations.”DownloadClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

Admin error that led to McCabe allegations was not reported as HSE

first_img Wednesday 15 Feb 2017, 1:18 PM By Darragh McDonagh ‘Admin error’ that led to McCabe allegations was not reported as HSE data protection breach Documents released under an FOI show that the incident wasn’t listed among 103 data protection breaches reported between April 2014 and April 2015.

Image: Laura Hutton THE ‘ADMINISTRATIVE ERROR’ that led to false sex-abuse allegations against Garda whistleblower Sergeant Maurice McCabe was not reported as a data protection breach, as required by protocol.The Health Service Executive (HSE) claimed last weekend that the error had been brought to the attention of its Regional Manager for Data Protection and Consumer Affairs when it was discovered in May 2014.However, records released under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that the incident was not listed among 103 data-protection breaches reported within the agency between April 2014 and April 2015.These breaches included cases of medical notes being sent to the wrong patients, a Tusla report being attached to an information booklet and posted by mistake, and a patient’s chart being left on a garden wall.But the incident in which a ‘copy-and-paste’ error resulted in false accusations of sexual abuse against Sergeant McCabe being held on file and shared with other agencies is not recorded on the HSE’s data-breach log.Data protection laws place an obligation on organisations to ensure that personal information contained in their records is “accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date”.The Data Protection Commissioner has held that this obligation is heightened in the case of data that “has potential to reflect on an individual’s personal character in a profound manner”.HSE Data Protection Breach Management Policy requires all relevant incidents to be reported to Consumer Affairs or the ICT Directorate, and for an incident report to be completed by staff.The local consumer affairs officer subsequently decides whether it is necessary to report suspected breaches to the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner.Sensitive informationA record of all such incidents between April 2014 and April 2015 contains details of 103 suspected breaches, including a case in which patient files were discovered by a member of the public in the drawer of a filing cabinet in a second-hand furniture shop.In another case, a diary containing sensitive client information was misplaced by a community services worker in Sligo, but was later found on the roof of her car.The HSE has stated that a counsellor working with the National Counselling Service made the ‘administrative error’ in 2013 involving a file that was shared with Tusla, the child and family agency, and An Garda Síochána.They discovered the mistake on 7 May 2014 and alerted both of the other agencies, issuing them with a corrected report. The error has given rise to a major political controversy.The HSE declined to comment on the FOI.Yesterday, it was confirmed that a tribunal will take place to look into the allegations of a smear against Maurice McCabe.Read:  Tusla to appear before Dáil committee next week as McCabe controversy rumbles on>Read: Tusla ‘in the process of apologising’ to McCabe over false sex abuse allegation> Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

La terrible question de la seconde intercalaire fautil la supprimer

first_imgLa terrible question de la seconde intercalaire : faut-il la supprimer ?Le système de la “seconde intercalaire”, qui permet de rattraper le décalage éventuel entre l’heure atomique et l’heure solaire depuis 40 ans, va peut-être être supprimé cette semaine à Genève.Cela fait 10 ans que les états-membres de l’UIT (Union internationale des télécommunications) bataillent autour de la question : faut-il supprimer la seconde intercalaire ? Cette seconde est celle qui permet de corriger les éventuels décalages qui se créent entre l’heure atomique et l’heure solaire. Depuis la création de la seconde intercalaire en 1972, il y a eu 24 secondes additionnelles, (la dernière date du 31 décembre 2008). A chaque fois, la mise à l’heure se fait manuellement, soit le dernier jour de juin, ou le dernier jour de décembre. À lire aussiChangement d’heure d’hiver 2012 : pourquoi ce changement horaire ?”Il n’y a jamais de lancement de fusées ces jours-là, en raison d’un éventuel décalage, qui brouillerait tous les calculs”, a indiqué Vincent Meens, président d’un groupe d’études sur ce sujet à l’IUT. Parmi les pays préconisant la suppression, figurent la France, les Etats-Unis et d’autres pays européens, tandis que du côté des opposants à la suppression on trouve la Grande-Bretagne, la Chine et le Canada. “Le problème vient du fait que l’on ne peut pas prévoir longtemps à l’avance, s’il faut ajouter ou non une seconde intercalaire à l’heure atomique, car tout dépend de la rotation de la terre, qui peut être affectée par des événements comme des tremblements de terre”, a expliqué devant la presse M. Meens cité par l’AFP.Si la suppression de la seconde intercalaire simplifierait la vie des informaticiens, elle aboutirait aussi à une “distorsion” entre l’heure atomique et l’heure solaire, qui serait de “15 secondes tous les 100 ans”. D’où la difficulté de la décision que doivent prendre les pays membres de l’UIT lors de leur prochaine réunion qui se tient cette semaine. Toutefois, si les états-membres approuvaient la résolution en faveur de la suppression de seconde intercalaire, il faudrait qu’elle soit également approuvée par la Conférence mondiale de l’IUT sur les radiocommunications, un événement qui a lieu tous les 3 ou 4 ans, et dont la prochaine édition est prévue du 23 janvier au 17 février à Genève.  Le 19 janvier 2012 à 15:45 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Perspective is everything Neelakantan

first_imgKnown for his unique approach towards mythology and epic stories like Ramayana and Mahabharata, Anand Neelakantan is back with his new and altogether a different story this time. The book titled ‘Vanara: The Legend of Baali, Sugreeva, and Tara’ promises to be the first love triangle in the history of Hindu mythology. Anand, who has previously written bestsellers, talk to Millennium Post about his new book, his inspiration and a lot more. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf From where did you get the idea of Vanara: The Legend of Baali, Sugreeva, and Tara? The idea sprouted as a short story on Tara. It was seen by the chief editor of Penguin, who encouraged me to explore the possibility of making it into a Novel. As I started researching for the work and going through my notes that I had made for my first book ‘Asura’, my television series, ‘Siya Ke Ram’ and ‘Mahabali Hanuman’ etc, I found that the story of Vanaras is a fascinating one. This is arguably the first love triangle ever remembered. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive What does this book offers, which is different from all the other books you have written in the past? While other books were focused on male perspective and has more political and philosophical perspective, this one is mainly from Tara’s perspective. It is a close-knit story of three people and their lives in the backdrop of Ramayana. This might be my first romantic thriller. It is only incidental that it is set in Ramayana period. This could be happening now and here. What has inspired you towards such stories? I have always been fascinated by our epics, the folk tales and ballads. May be, my growing up in a village in Kerala where the temple arts of Kathakali, Ottan Thullal and many others were a part of life, have influenced me a lot. Describe what mythology is for you, in one word? In one word – Proto history I think the word mythology is misleading. For Indians they are Ithihasa and Purana. These are proto-history. I believe there are some truths in such stories. These are the tales that a civilization has remembered over many thousand years. There could be and there are many exaggerations, lost of propaganda has been added, stories have been twisted for political purposes or glorification of some group of people over others, yet one can’t say they are mere stories. As a writer, what is your approach towards the female characters? Tougher to write, but I enjoy the challenge. In ‘Vanara’, it is a female centric perspective. I have kept distance from ‘Baali. Unlike Asura’ or ‘Ajaya’ series, where it is through the minds of men, most of the story evolves, in Vanara- Tara is the hero. What is the important message you want to convey through these books? That every story has many sides, not just two. Perspective is everything. Never be judgemental. People in old times were more into mythology as compared to modern times. As a writer of 21st century, what do you do to draw the young generation’s interest in such stories? As a writer, I shifted to English, though I am more comfortable in my mother tongue, because I wanted to reach more people. I try to give a rational approach to all my stories and this is perhaps that has attracted many young readers to my book. Youth is all about non-conformity and rebellion. My books are rebellious in nature and are subaltern. I may claim thus my books are youthful and hence attract the youth more. What are your expectations from this book? My expectations are like what I had for all my books. That the book shall be debated, loved, hated, appreciated, criticized and remembered for many generations to come. Writing is a pursuit for immortality. What is on your mind after this book? Which story are you going to work on? I am in the final stages of ‘Baahubali’ series book 2. The book 1 of the series – Rise of Sivagami is becoming a Netflix original series. My first target is to complete that. I have already finished a non-fiction called ‘Asura Marga’ and a Malayalam Novel, and these are in editing stage. I am working on a couple of TV shows and a major film. The next novel will be a mythological-horror, which will come after the second book of Baahubali series. Are you going to stick to this genre, or will you explore something new in the coming time? I have no plans to stick to one genre. The difficulty is in convincing the publishers. Since my books have done well in this genre, every publisher wants me to write only in this genre. It is as difficult to shift genres as it is for a debutante to get published, but I am determined to do so. ‘Baahubali ‘series was one attempt to shift away from Purana retelling. The horror genre I am writing will be another one. I would follow these with children’s books, satirical novels and thrillers. What have you learned after reading and writing all these mythological books? I have learned that perspective is everything. There are as many versions of a story as there are people. Never be judgmental and there is nothing called absolute right or wrong. That realisation has set me free and made life joyful.last_img read more

Do it enough, and the device will be locked out for days and even years.This isn’t just hypothetical — in fact, it happens more often than you’d think. Evan Osnos, a staff writer at The New Yorker, tweeted in April 2019 that his 3-year-old locked him out of his iPad for 25,536,442 minutes, or around 48 years, as reported by CNN. This is possible because of an Apple security feature that lengthens the lock-out time the more you input an incorrect password.If you find yourself on the wrong end of this scenario, don’t worry: Here are the steps you should take when your iPhone or iPad becomes disabled into the 22nd century. How to Unlock a Disabled iPhone or iPadYou’ll first need to download iTunes onto your laptop. Once that’s finished, connect your bricked device to your laptop and open iTunes.You will now need to force a restart. If you own an iPhone 8 or later or an iPad Pro 12.9 or iPad Pro 11, then press and release the volume up button, press and release the volume down button, then tap and hold the side (or top) button until you see the recovery mode screen. If you own an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, complete step 1 then hold the side and volume buttons down at the same time until recovery mode appears on your phone. On an iPhone 6s or earlier or an iPad with a home button, press and hold the Home button and top (or side) buttons at the same time. Once you’ve completed this step, an iTunes pop-up should appear on your laptop that asks you to restore or update your device. Choose “Restore.” iTunes will then download software onto your device (this will take several minutes) so you can set your phone up as new. In a best-case scenario, you have an iCloud or iTunes backup you can use to restore your iPhone or iPad. If so, select “Restore from iCloud Backup” or “Restore from iTunes Backup” and follow the prompts (you’ll be asked to sign in to your accounts). If you’re worried about getting locked out of your device and haven’t backed it up, then check out this guide on how to do so. 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 GameUndoForbes.comCrazy Rich Asians for RealForbes.comUndoCNN International for ANAWhy Tennis Pundits Are Tipping This WomanCNN International for ANAUndoTODAYCeline Dion Discusses Her Recent Weight Loss: ‘Everything’s Fine’TODAYUndoMy Food and FamilyHealthy, Homemade Drunken Thai Noodles In Just 20 MinutesMy Food and FamilyUndoAdvertisement Phillip Tracy, Author Biocenter_img Phillip Tracy, Phillip Tracy is a senior writer at Tom’s Guide and Laptop Mag, where he reviews laptops and covers the latest industry news.

He was excommunicated and his followers persecuted as heretics by Rome.The Waldensians today are united with the Methodist Church of Italy and claim 45,000 followers, mostly in Italy, Argentina and Uruguay.During a speech to a few hundred people in the Waldensian temple of Turin, Francis decried how Christians over history committed atrocious acts of violence in the name of their faith.“On the part of the Catholic Church, I ask your forgiveness, I ask it for the non-Christian and even inhuman attitudes and behavior that we have showed you,” Francis said somberly from the altar. “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, forgive us!”His speech, greeted with warm applause, was reminiscent albeit on a much smaller scale of the appeals for forgiveness made by St. John Paul II during the 2000 Jubilee. In several events that year, John Paul asked pardons for the Crusades and Catholic wrongs committed against Jews and others.Francis, an Argentine Jesuit, has continued his strong friendships with leaders of Protestant and evangelical churches that he developed as the archbishop of Buenos Aires.

Study Shows New Jersey Has Highest Property Taxes Hawaii Has Lowest

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Origination Homeowners with almost insignificant property taxes and those with hefty burdens are, literally, about as far apart as you can get, according to a new report by Wallet Hub regarding the states with the highest and lowest property taxes in the nation.The recently released April report finds that homeowners in Hawaii have the country’s lowest property tax burden, coming in at an average of $482 per year. Meanwhile, New Jerseyans must contend with the highest property taxes, paying an average of just under $4,000 a year. This puts the national average for property taxes at $2,089 a year, almost to the dollar what residents of Massachusetts, Alaska, and Minnesota (ranked 31st to 33rd) pay.Wallet Hub’s rankings, however, do not factor in the hidden costs with which mortgage borrowers must often contend. Mortgage companies, for example, typically add one-twelfth of a borrower’s estimated property taxes to that client’s monthly mortgage payment (a process called escrow or impound) as a way to stave off costly filing and service costs they would assume should a borrower go delinquent.But while some states, such as California, allow residents to pay property taxes as part of their mortgages, others do not. According to the National Tax Lien Association, property tax delinquency sends roughly $15 billion worth of homes into foreclosure annually.  According to Thomas C. Kinnaman, a professor of economics at Bucknell University, every $1,000 in property tax increases equals a $50,000 increase in the cost of the house.Diane Lourdes Dick, assistant professor of law at Seattle University, reminds that mortgage borrowers should be aware of more than just the dollar amounts quoted for a property tax bill, whether hidden in a mortgage loan payment or paid separately. “Taxation is not only important from a home affordability standpoint,” she says. “The way that tax revenues are used by the government to fund education, infrastructure, and public services should also be considered by prospective buyers.”Alabama, Louisiana, Delaware, and South Carolina round out the five states with the lowest property taxes, each coming in at less than $1,000 a year. Michigan, Nebraska, Connecticut, Texas, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, and Illinois join New Jersey in having annual property taxes that average above $3,100 a year.
