“We firmly believe that steady progress and eventual success of the current transitional justice initiatives in Sri Lanka is crucial – not only to maintain and enhance the reputation of the UNHRC as an effective UN organ capable of living up to its creation mandate, but also specifically for Sri Lanka to prevent any seeds of potential conflict germinating in the hopeless and desperate situation most victims find themselves in,” GTF added.GTF urged member states to take note of the High Commissioner’s recommendation that they “investigate and prosecute, wherever possible, in particular in accordance with universal jurisdiction principles, those allegedly responsible for such violations as torture, enforced disappearance, war crimes or crimes against humanity; and explore other options to advance accountability in the absence of credible domestic processes.”GTF also urged member states to consider adopting parallel processes on accountability to supplement efforts by the UNHRC to deal with atrocity crimes in Sri Lanka during and after the war that ended ten years ago. (Colombo Gazette) “Therefore, the burning question among the victims and the Tamil community is – what difference is another resolution going to make, considering this is the seventh UNHRC resolution in the decade after the end of the war? It is this dismal performance by the Sri Lankan government and the increasing frustration among the victims that UNHRC will not be able to course-correct Sri Lanka towards an acceptable pace of progress that contribute to calls by many that UNHRC should refer Sri Lanka to the UN Security Council for further action,” GTF said. “It is our earnest request that such an operational arrangement be worked out as an urgent priority with the full involvement of the OHCHR,” GTF said.GTF, an influential lobby group, said that strongly articulated positions are critical to emphasize urgency and commitment to the political leadership of the country and to prevent the victims’ further descent into despair. The Global Tamil Forum (GTF) has called for an operational arrangement to be worked out on the Resolution on Sri Lanka which was passed by the UN Human Rights Council yesterday.In a statement today the GTF said that there is strong disappointment in the Tamil community that ten years after the end of the war, and three years after Sri Lanka co-sponsored Resolution 30/1, there is very little progress on accountability and transitional justice. GTF noted that while the need for a time-bound implementation strategy as mentioned in the new Resolution is acknowledged, it is disappointing that the Resolution lacks specificities of how it will become operational. read more

“The new ILO study provides a stark analysis of the growing ’employment gap’ in the Asia region,” and the creation of new jobs has failed to keep pace with the region’s impressive economic growth, said an ILO statement. What’s more, employment in the region during 2003-2004 increased by only 1.6 per cent while the total GDP for the region grew by almost five times that amount. During the same time period, the total unemployed edged up by half a million, reaching 78 million, the fifth consecutive increase since 1999.Overall, more than 2 billion people in Asia earn less than $2 a day, and of those, 690 million earn less than $1 a day, and are defined as living in “extreme poverty,” according to the report titled “Labour and Social Trends in Asia and the Pacific 2005”. The report estimated that 355 million people in the region are “working poor,” or those that work very hard for very long hours and do not earn enough to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.The report also identified major trends that add to the stark employment statistics, including the continued high use of child labor while in “cruel irony” 49 per cent of youths aged 15 to 24 are unemployed, though they only represent 20 per cent of the population. Meanwhile, young children in the region have the lowest school attendance rate, representing 48 per cent of the primary schoolchildren worldwide who are not enrolled. The links between continued child labour and poverty “are clear”, the report added.Women were also big losers on the labor front, because women have fewer opportunities to work and are paid less for the same work, girls have lower participation rates in schools, and young women have even lower employment rates than young men. As a result, “many countries, especially those in South Asia, are also unlikely to meet the third [Millenium Development Goal (MDG)] on gender equality and the empowerment of women.” read more

OSU freshman guard Jensen Caretti (33) outlasts Duquesne senior forward Amadea Szamosi’s (15) block in the second quarter of the Buckeyes 89-69 win over the Dukes at St. John’s Arena on Nov. 11. Credit: Angelia Heimsoth | For The LanternFrom the outset of Ohio State’s 89-69 win over Duquesne University on Friday, it was evident that the Buckeyes’ recent efforts to shore up defensive and rebounding issues paid off.OSU coach Kevin McGuff was unhappy with these two areas of his team’s play following a subpar exhibition performance against Ashland on Sunday. So much so that the Buckeyes worked almost entirely on rebounding and defense this week in practice.The increased effort and intensity was noticeable from the opening tip, as the Buckeyes used a full-court press to bother the Dukes throughout the game. Duquesne shot just 36.9 percent from the field and turned the ball over 15 times.“Coach was really harping on defense after last game, and I feel like we locked in and took the message and did a really good job with defense and rebounding,” redshirt sophomore guard Sierra Calhoun said.At times against Ashland, the Buckeyes played loose and weren’t as aggressive as McGuff would have liked on the defensive end. That wasn’t the case this time around.“We’ve been really locked in on that; finding your man and being aggressive,” redshirt junior forward Stephanie Mavunga said. “Continue to go after rebounds, whether it’s offense or defense because that stops their second chance opportunities and then gives us our chance to get second-chance opportunities.”OSU also turned up its intensity on the boards. The Buckeyes were outrebounded 47-38 against Ashland, but they completely flipped the switch against the Dukes. OSU pulled down 55 boards and allowed Duquesne to grab just 33, and all 10 Buckeyes to see regular minutes grabbed at least two rebounds.Leading the way was Mavunga, who attributed her 15-point and 14-rebound performance to the efforts of her teammates.“They were boxing out other players, so then that gave me the opportunity to go into the open gaps and get the rebounds,” Mavunga said.The Buckeyes’ defensive and rebounding efforts caused several scoring droughts for the Dukes that allowed OSU to pull away. To finish the second quarter, Duquesne made just two of its last 11 shots and scored just seven points in the final seven minutes of the half.Duquesne sophomore forward Kadri-Ann Lass buried a three-pointer 15 seconds into the second half, but OSU then used a flurry of scoring and defensive pressure to go on a 9-0 run and build a 55-29 lead. The Dukes pushed back, mounting a 13-4 run of their own, but the Buckeyes again clamped down defensively and outscored Duquesne 30-27 the rest of the way.“We made plenty of mistakes, but we played hard,” McGuff said. “Our effort and intensity was so much better.”Balanced attackThe Buckeyes also used a balanced scoring attack to down the Dukes. 10 different players scored for OSU and four – junior guard Kelsey Mitchell (18 points), Mavunga (15), Calhoun (13) and junior guard Asia Doss (12) – were in double figures.Mitchell, despite scoring a team-high 18 points, struggled again from the field. She went 6-for-17 overall, including a 2-for-9 mark from three-point territory. Mitchell also struggled against Ashland, going 5-for-20 from the field and 0-for-8 from the three-point line.Despite the early season struggles, McGuff isn’t worried.“When she’s not her normal self, she can get down on herself,” McGuff said. “You’ve just got to remind her, ‘Hey, you’re a great player, just keep playing.’”The Buckeyes shot 44.6 percent from the field, including 27.2 percent (8-for-29) from the three-point line. The overall effort on both ends of the floor left McGuff feeling much more pleased than following the Ashland contest.“It’s very simple,” McGuff said. “You practice a certain way, you play a certain way.”Up nextThe South Carolina Gamecocks, a consensus top-five team that defeated the Buckeyes 88-80 in Columbia, South Carolina a season ago, will head to Columbus for a 6:00 p.m. tilt against OSU on Monday. read more

first_img THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE who need social housing may have been taken off the Dublin City Council housing list for not replying to a questionnaire.Some 3,655 applications have been removed from the Dublin City Council housing list following the recent housing needs assessment.The assessment is carried out every four or five years and councillors say they always see a large number of people taken off the list at that time.Speaking about the drop from almost 22,400 in January 2016 to under 19,000, Dublin City Councillor Noeleen Reilly said, “In many cases this is simply because they did not receive the letters sent out by Dublin City Council. 114 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL Jan 17th 2017, 10:21 AM Dublin City Council do send out the form a number of times but if you have changed address which many have recently then you may not get it.The questionnaire was sent last July and people who didn’t respond were sent a warning letter before receiving a letter telling them they were off the housing list.The council said people can have their applications re-examined if they contact the council before 31 March and can prove they still qualify for social housing.However Reilly added, “Many of the 3,655 who have been taken off the list are probably not even aware.I think it is very cruel for people who may be on the list for long periods of time to be simply taken off it and have to start from scratch.“It really isn’t fair and unfortunately I have dealt with many families who this happened in the past who would be housed by Dublin City Council by now had they not been taken off the list.”Read: Charities Regulator to animal charity – ‘sort out your books or else’> 29,604 Views center_img Thousands taken off social housing list for not replying to questionnaire Councillors say people who changed address may not have received the letters.

A dejected Mick McCarthy during what proved to be the final game of his first reign. Image: INPHO By Gavin Cooney 23,609 Views center_img Image: INPHO Share15 Tweet Email Gavin Cooney reports from GibraltarSTEPHEN KENNY MAY, over the next 18 months, come to know how senior international football works, but 17 years ago Mick McCarthy showed him how it can end.Kenny was standing with Pat Dolan and the Irish Independent’s Vincent Hogan outside Lansdowne Road on a fraught October night, looking on as the Irish team bus pulled away from the West Stand.An Irish fan ran alongside the bus, spitting poison into a plastic megaphone.When the bus came to a stop, he found himself looking straight at Mick McCarthy.“Fuck off home you English c**t”.A sour episode at the end of a night in which Mick McCarthy’s Irish reign had endured its rapid, final curdle. Robbie Keane reacts to a missed chance on that fateful night against Switzerland. Source: INPHOIreland had just been beaten 2-1 by Switzerland at Lansdowne Road; the manager’s gamble in replacing a defender (Ian Harte) with an attacker (Gary Doherty) backfiring when Fabio Celestini scored a late winner.With Ireland suddenly winless from their opening two Euro 2004 qualifiers, McCarthy was whipped back into the dressing room by a roiling crowd; his ears lashed with boos, taunts, and jeers.“No, never, ever”, says Clinton Morrison, when asked by The42 if he had ever heard an Irish crowd so.“Everytime I played for Ireland the fans have been excellent, but that was the final straw, and they thought that was the time for him to go.”McCarthy did eventually go, albeit it was a slightly drawn-out process with some unseemly public squabbling about a pay-off before he announced his resignation on 5 November.While he insisted he wouldn’t walk away after the match, a television interview in which he admitted the negativity directed at him was affecting the team’s performances hinted that his exit was inevitable.Dion Fanning of the Sunday Independent reported that McCarthy left the dressing room in tears, and as he stepped out to do that interview, was supported by a roar from the dressing room. McCarthy arrives at a press conference to announce his resignation. Source: INPHO“Don’t let the bastards get you, Mick.That nobody knew exactly who the bastards were went to show how utterly warped discussion around McCarthy’s position had become.“He was emotional”, says Morrison.“Everyone looks at Big Mick and thinks, ‘Oh yeah, this big Yorkshire guy’, but he cared like everyone else.”It all, of course, came back to Roy.Keane remained in his post-Saipan exile, and after he granted an interview to say he would return to play for any manager other than Mick, the manager’s authority wouldn’t survive another bad result.In the middle of the Saipan chaos, a Sunday Independent telephone poll found 51% were in favour of Mick; by the time the Swiss had won in Dublin, it had tipped to more than two-thirds in Roy’s favour.Eventually, Mick fell on his sword, announcing his resignation by saying that “some of the negativity directed at me was affecting the players.“Under normal circumstances, people leave because things are on the wane. The last two results [defeats by Russia and Switzerland] may suggest that but I don’t think it’s the case.“I walk away with my head held high. It has been a privilege and an honour to do the job. My successor, whoever he or she is, has a great job and a great bunch of players.”Johns Aldridge and Toshack were among the early favourites; Giles suggested Keane as a player-manager. One optimistic Irish Independent columnist recommended Johan Cruyff. In the end, the job was Brian Kerr’s.Now, 5952 days and four permanent managers later, McCarthy is back.“The butterflies are already starting”, McCarthy said at his pre-match press conference.“I have that feeling. And I’m glad I have. Because if I lose that then there’d be something wrong, as it’s been there since the very first game I played.”Back in 2002, the Telegraph reported Mick’s resignation by saying that he “may have won the battle with Roy Keane but he lost the war”, not realising that theirs was the kind of falling-out that should be told on a tapestry.It is reductive to view McCarthy’s long management career through the prism of Keane, but given he was forced out of the job by critics looking and roaring through that distorted lens, it’s worth comparing them since.Mick resigned, and Roy returned. Then Roy retired and moved into management, where he succeeded Mick at Sunderland. Then he was sacked and took over at Ipswich, where he was again sacked and within eighteen months had Mick among the list of his successors.Roy then improbably ended up working with the FAI, only to be again succeeded by Mick, who has now been charged with sprucing up a gloomy camp.So how has McCarthy, who left the job in one of the most febrile Lansdowne atmospheres ever, become the man to make it all happy again?His essential dignity in the final days of the last reign has stood to him as he has been rehabilitated in exile.Where once Keane’s anger and misanthropy could be cast as a condition of his greatness, it has in recent years exacerbated jobs at which he is mediocre.McCarthy has continued to work in these environments, his greater success seemingly coming from the fact that he genuinely enjoys it.Whereas Keane wrote in his book that he doesn’t particularly like footballers, McCarthy said this week that he enjoys “just being at close quarters with players…I enjoy being with them, I enjoy watching them, and interacting with them. It’s great.”McCarthy is largely working with the same group of players as Keane and Martin O’Neill had – only Mark Travers, Josh Cullen, Jack Byrne and James Collins weren’t capped by the former manager – so he has thus far relied on affecting a change in spirit.He has always refused to engage with questions inviting him to say that he is picking a lower quality of player to his previous reign, telling one journalist that he wouldn’t “insult” his players that way.McCarthy has also refused to agree with O’Neill’s dreary “I worked with an older Robbie Keane than I would have liked” incantation in response to a lack of goals.Instead he has talked up James Collins’ form, David McGoldrick’s record, and Sean Maguire’s potential. McCarthy enjoys training at Victoria Stadium ahead of his first game back in charge. Source: James Crombie/INPHOMatt Doherty and Jack Byrne, whose unusual levels of self-confidence were not always a valuable currency in the previous set-up, were put front and centre for media duties.Doherty was a critic of a previous camp he referred to as “tense”, but on Wednesday spoke glowingly of the atmosphere in McCarthy.McCarthy will also end O’Neill’s custom of telling the players the team a couple of hours before the game, and thus there should be greater clarity of purpose in their approach.That should stand to them against Gibraltar, where anything other than a win would be a catastrophe and would lead us all to revise the Sunday Tribune’s scathing summary of Jack Charlton’s failure against Lichtenstein, where Ireland “drew 0-0 with a mountaintop.”Providing his side don’t end up mining ignominy from Gibraltar, McCarthy’s challenge then will be startling the Aviva from its disaffected slumber on Tuesday.And whereas McCarthy left a fiery, furious ground 17 years ago, the one he returns to next week has been dulled beyond passion.One last fling for Mick and Ireland then, for which he might earn a championship game in Dublin and a more fitting farewell.  Republic of Ireland possible XI (4-4-1-1) – Darren Randolph; Seamus Coleman, Shane Duffy, Richard Keogh, Enda Stevens; Matt Doherty, Conor Hourihane, Jeff Hendrick, James McClean; David McGoldrick; Sean MaguireGibraltar possible XI (4-5-1) – Kyle Goldwin; Jack Seargeant, Roy Chipolina, Jayce Oliveira, Joe Chipolina; Anthony Bardon, Liam Walker, Anthony Hernandez, Lee Casciaro, Alain Pons; Tjay De Barr A dejected Mick McCarthy during what proved to be the final game of his first reign. 23 Comments last_img read more

first_imgJetset Travelworld has recently released encouraging results for the financial year to 30 June 2010, given the bottom-line impact of its proposed merger with Stella Travel Services.Jetset reported $8.7 million in profit after tax for FY10, down 45 percent from FY09. However, the company was quick to note that much of its profitability had been consumed by $4.5 million in costs associated with the proposed Stella merger. In its presentation to investors on 10 August 2010, Jetset highlighted that the $19 million Profit Before Tax (PBT) was attributable to improving trade conditions and strict cost control by the company.PBT in the second half of FY10 was 59 percent higher than PBT in the first half (before merger costs), Chief Executive Officer of Jetset Travelworld, Peter Collins said.“This result reflects the emergent recovery in the travel and tourism industry and the stringent cost measures we have implemented to ensure overall profitability.” Jetset reported that Total Transaction Value (TTV) of $2.2 million was down 7.5 percent in FY10 compared to FY09, whilst net revenue had dropped 6.9 percent and PBT was down 20 percent (excluding merger costs).However, when the second half of FY10 was compared to the first half, signs of post-global financial crisis were evident. Over this time, TTV was up 9.3 percent, and appeared to have stabilised.The company said that their principal short-term focus was the proposed merger with Stella. As such, the Jetset Board suspended any final dividend for FY10, in order to retain sufficient cash reserves – reported at $114 million – to facilitate Stella’s integration.Jetset currently has approximately 800 staff across 670 franchises. Stella has TTV of $3.3 billion, and 1,800 staff across 1,530 franchises. Synergies from the proposed merger include: increased online competitiveness, reduction of unit cost distribution, stronger business partners and a stronger balance sheet. The focus of the merger will be on strict cost control, volume stimulation, sustainability initiatives, and integrating Stella.An ACCC decision is expected on 2 September 2010, with shareholders able to vote at an Extraordinary General Meeting to be held on 6 September 2010.

first_imgHigh population density in the Lean Linear City requires a highly developed logistic system within it and it leads the form of the city to become more three dimensional. By putting people closer and making the logistic system more three dimensional, the city can perform more efficiently and effectively in terms of marginalizing the use of the car and promoting pedestrian, bicycle and public transportation. To represent visually this concept of high density, three dimensional form and logistic system, the Arcosanti Planning Department has built a physical model of one module of Lean Linear City. Led by planning staff Youngsoo Kim, planning intern Antonio Chelen from Santiago, Chile and Flavio Borrelli from Naples, Italy built the model. The photos in this and the following postings show the sequence of the model building and also possible a future construction sequence of a module of Lean Linear City.This report continues on 9/14/11. September 12, 2011“Lean Linear City: Arterial Arcology”  is a publication upcoming at the end of September, by Paolo Soleri in collaboration with the Arcosanti Planning Department.
