Yemen Security Council strongly condemns attack on vessel by Houthi forces

“The members of the Security Council take threats to shipping around Bab al-Mandeb, a strategically important shipping passage, extremely seriously,” a statement issued by the 15-member body said. The Council also stressed that the continued exercise of freedom of navigation in and around Bab al-Mandeb Strait in accordance with relevant international law must be upheld. The members of the Security Council called for such attacks to cease immediately and urged necessary steps to be taken to de-escalate the situation. They also reiterated their support to the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, to pursue his efforts to find a political solution to the conflict in Yemen. To support the consultations of the Special Envoy, and avoid further loss of life, the members of the Security Council urged all parties to recommit to and fully respect the terms and conditions of the cessation of hostilities entered into on April 10, which will include a complete halt to ground and air military activities. Further, the Council called on all sides to resume working through the De-Escalation and Coordination Committee to facilitate the strengthening of the cessation of hostilities. Yemen has been engulfed in violence for several years now – a confrontation between the country’s Houthis (Ansar Allah) and the Government of Yemen in early 2014 led to a Houthi advance on the capital, and an ensuing conflict which has involved support from outside parties. The UN has been heavily involved in efforts to resolve the crisis. While peace talks between a Yemeni Government delegation and a delegation of the General People’s Congress and Ansar Allah continued, serious violations have occurred in Marib, al Jawf, Taiz and in the border areas with Saudi Arabia. Those UN-facilitated talks ended on 6 August. read more


Butlins owner helps parents fight ban on term time holidays

The company that owns Butlins helped fund a parent organisation’s fight against the term time holiday ban.Bourne Leisure, which also owns Haven caravan parks and Warner Leisure Hotels, allowed  Parents Want a Say free use of its PR agency.Jack Irvine, executive chairman of Media House International, said Bourne Leisure had asked him to help with the “very interesting campaign”.He told the Sunday Times: “Butlins, like every other holiday company in the UK, has quite a long holiday season, yet there is this mad rush for places during the very brief six-week school holiday period. Anything to ease that pressure is good news and good business.”Parents Want a Say was co-founded by Craig Langman, a father of one, and Karen Wilkinson, a mother of three, in 2013 to protest against a change in government regulations that meant head teachers could not grant any leave of absence to pupils during term time without “exceptional circumstances”. last_img read more


Tornades aux EtatsUnis  les deuxièmes plus meurtrières de lhistoire du pays

first_imgTornades aux Etats-Unis : les deuxièmes plus meurtrières de l’histoire du paysPrès de 300 tornades ont frappé le sud-est des États-Unis ces derniers jours. Selon les dernières estimations établies samedi matin, la catastrophe aurait fait près d’un millier de sinistrés dont 350 morts. Un sombre bilan qui élève le cataclysme au rang du deuxième plus meurtrier de l’histoire des États-Unis. Bien que le sud des États-Unis soit régulièrement confronté à de violentes tornades, ce printemps 2011 est un record avec près de 300 cataclysmes enregistrés. Le dernier bilan révélé par les autorités fait état de 350 morts et 10.000 bâtiments détruits. Au regard de ces lourdes conséquences, cette catastrophe naturelle est la plus meurtrière aux États-Unis depuis l’ouragan Katrina en 2005 et les tornades d’avril 1974. L’état d’urgence a été déclaré dans plusieurs États : l’Alabama, l’Arkansas, le Kentucky, le Mississippi, le Missouri, le Tennessee et l’Oklahoma.À lire aussiCes effrayantes images démontrent l’impressionnant pouvoir de la natureCes tornades sont des tourbillons de vents qui se déplacent à des vitesses entre 50 et 100 kilomètres par heure. Des vitesses allant jusqu’à 500 kilomètres par heure ont même été enregistrées dans des cas d’extrême violence. Généralement ces cataclysmes ne durent qu’une dizaine de minutes après leur naissance à la base d’un nuage orageux. Leur formation résulte d’une rencontre entre l’air froid des couches hautes de l’atmosphère et de l’air chaud et humide des couches plus basses. Au lieu de se mélanger, les deux masses d’air s’enroulent créant des vents très forts.Cette rencontre entre air froid et air chaud est particulièrement propice dans le sud des États-Unis au printemps. En effet, durant cette période, des courants froids descendent du pôle Nord et atteignent au niveau de la région des courants chauds provenant du golfe du Mexique. En outre, les Grandes Plaines situées entre les Rocheuses et les Appalaches offrent des conditions favorables à la formation des tornades. La région du sud, composée de l’Oklahoma, du Kansas, de l’Arkansas, de l’Iowa et du Missouri a été baptisée Tornado Alley en raison de cette particularité.Visualisez en images les dégâts de la série de tornades sur Maxisciences :https://www.maxisciences.com/temp%eate/le-sud-des-etats-unis-devaste-par-de-violentes-tempetes_art14278.html Le 2 mai 2011 à 10:08 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

IMA calls strike on Aug 8 to protest against NMC Bill

first_imgNew Delhi: The Indian Medical Association has given a call for a strike on August 8 to protest against certain amendments of the National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill. It said the medical students will continue their strike across the country under IMA Medical Students Network. “The call is for all the modern medicine doctors to leave their work place across the sectors at all levels,” according to a statement by the IMA. The doctors’ body has also called for demonstrations and hunger strikes at its local branches and urged medical students to boycott classes and proclaim solidarity with the IMA. Also Read – NRC in Assam to be released: list to finalize if a person is Indian or Foreigner Advertise With Us On Sunday, resident doctors of AIIMS and Safdarjung Hospital had called off their strike and resumed duties after Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan assured them that their concerns over the NMC Bill will be duly addressed. The doctors had been demonstrating against certain provisions of the bill since its passage in Rajya Sabha last week. “The NMC Bill 2019 is unacceptable to the medical fraternity in the current format. The community health providers envisaged in the bill is a direct threat to thousands and thousands of poor vulnerable marginalised rural patients.

Peace declaration not a bargaining chip N Korea

first_imgPeople carry flags in front of statues of North Korea founder Kim Il Sung (L) and late leader Kim Jong Il during a military parade marking the 70th anniversary of North Korea`s foundation in Pyongyang, North Korea on 9 September. Photo: ReutersNorth Korea warned Washington through its state media Tuesday that a declaration ending the Korean War shouldn’t be seen as a bargaining chip in denuclearization talks — but suggested lifting sanctions might be.The North’s official news agency issued a commentary claiming Pyongyang has taken significant measures to end hostile relations between the two countries but said the US is “trying to subdue” it through sanctions, a not-so-subtle call for Washington to lift sanctions if it wants further progress in their stalled nuclear negotiations.The commentary said a declaration replacing a 65-year-old armistice to formally end the war “is not just a gift from a man to another,” and added, “it can never be a bargaining chip for getting the DPRK denuclearized.”The DPRK is short for the North’s official name — the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.The commentary was directed at supporters of the US policy to maintain maximum pressure and sanctions on North Korea until it has made clear and significant moves to denuclearize.US secretary of state Mike Pompeo — a vocal advocate of that policy — is expected to travel to Pyongyang soon to try to revive the negotiation process and set the stage for a second summit between president Donald Trump and leader Kim Jong Un.The commentary echoes a speech by North Korea’s foreign minister, Ri Yong Ho, at the United Nations last week in which he claimed North Korea is ready to implement the agreements Trump and Kim made during their first summit, in Singapore in June, but also accused Washington of failing to demonstrate its willingness to ease tensions and build mutual trust.”Without any trust in the US, there will be no confidence in our national security,” he said, “and under such circumstances there is no way we will unilaterally disarm ourselves first.”The North’s emphasis on lifting sanctions and building trust above all else puts a spotlight on the rift between its position and Washington’s since the Singapore summit, when Trump and Kim issued a vague statement about a nuclear-free peninsula without describing when and how it would occur.Negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang have since been rocky, with neither side able to agree on a starting point and widespread skepticism in the United States over whether Pyongyang is serious about renouncing an arsenal it sees as the only way to guarantee its safety.Hopes for progress in the talks got a boost last month, when South Korean President Moon Jae-in met with Kim in Pyongyang for their third summit.The summit resulted in a joint statement in which the North expressed willingness for a “permanent” dismantling of its main nuclear facility in Nyongbyon — if the United States takes corresponding measures — and the dismantling of a missile engine test site and launch pad in northwestern North Korea.What the North would see as corresponding measures wasn’t specified. But Tuesday’s commentary and the UN statement suggest sanctions are a primary concern.The 1950-53 Korean War ended in what was intended to be a temporary ceasefire. Moon and Kim are pushing for the end-of-war declaration by December. The declaration would be less difficult to make than a formal peace treaty, and Moon says he and Kim have agreed such a “political declaration” wouldn’t require the pullout of 28,500 US troops stationed in South Korea.last_img

Virgin Singapore alliance in the hands of ACCC

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: M.H. Singapore Airlines is hoping to make further inroads into the Aussie market The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has received a submission from Virgin Australia seeking regulatory approval for the carrier’s proposed alliance with Singapore Airlines.According to the application, the alliance would fill “significant gaps” in the carriers’ networks, with Virgin Australia given access to the “increasingly important Asian market”, while Singapore Airlines will be handed an Australian partner.       Under the alliance, Virgin will look to offer its passengers a greater international network and a frequent flyer program comparable to that of Qantas, whilst continuing to offer value for money, the airline said in its submission.The ACCC was told the proposed partnership would “promote competition for Australian air travel”, providing “more choice and better value” for customers whilst enabling Virgin to attract “more business and corporate travel in closer competition with Qantas”.In its 107-page submission, Virgin said the alliance would positively affect tourism to Australia, “particularly to destinations beyond Australia’s main international gateways”, through the introduction of an Air Pass product for international tourists.   Virgin’s existing deals with Etihad, Air New Zealand and Delta will be unaffected, with the airline saying it had no intention to codeshare on Singapore Airlines’ routes where it had codeshare coverage with Etihad. Interlining and reciprocal lounge access for frequent flyer members will commence on 1 August.A final ruling on the proposed partnership is not expected until November or December. last_img read more

Users given longer to remove buildings from disputed plot

first_imgThe Larnaca district court on Friday extended a deadline to the users of the Ktima Makenzy event venue to remove any buildings from the plot of which the government took control on Thursday.The disputed land located in the Mackenzie area of Larnaca will be handed over to the Turkish Cypriot man who inherited it.The users have until January 31 to remove any construction from the property.In its decision, the court took into account that the premises were built with light material which can easily be moved.An officer said the two sides are close to reaching an agreement and it may not even be necessary to move the building.According to two court decisions, in 2016 and 2018, the “the defendant (the Republic of Cyprus) must give the plaintiff (the owners) the possession of the property vacant and free”.The interior ministry evicted the users on Thursday morning with a strong police force in a procedure which went smoothly.Staff were asked to vacate the premises in the presence of the user of the property.Police officers will remain in the area until January 31.The lawsuit against the state and the guardian of Turkish Cypriot properties had been filed by Raymond Riza, the son and heir of Fikret Ali Riza who died in the UK in June 2000.Fikret Ali Riza owned the land in the parish of Skala and was born in Larnaca on February 2, 1926. He emigrated to London in 1951 where he lived until his death.The property was registered to his son in August 2005. Raymond was born in 1955 and has lived in London since. Like Raymond, Fikret was also a British passport holder.Raymond sued the state and the guardian, demanding some €958,000 in damages for loss of use between 1975 and 2012, as well as general damages for violating his right to property.The property in question had been requisitioned, like all properties left behind by Turkish Cypriots in the aftermath of the Turkish invasion in July 1974.In 1991, it came under the control of the guardian, the interior ministry, whose task is to protect the properties until an agreement is reached by the two sides.The land was leased and in 2010 the occupant constructed an event venue, Ktima Makenzy, after securing special permission.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoNovelodgeThe One WD40 Trick Everyone Should Know AboutNovelodgeUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)UndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
