Jogger who crossed US border accidentally a warning to Canadians expert

first_imgVANCOUVER – A Washington state immigration lawyer says a case of a French teenager who reportedly crossed from Canada into the United States by accident and was detained for two weeks should serve as a warning to Canadians.Len Saunders says while there are aspects of her case that are unique, it should still serve as a reminder for Canadians to be careful along border crossings.Cedella Roman, a 19-year-old French citizen, could not be reached for comment but she told CBC she was visiting her mother in B.C. and was jogging near the border when she inadvertently crossed into the U.S. on May 21.In an email statement, the Department of Homeland Security confirms Roman was arrested by Border Patrol agents in Blaine, Wash., where she was not carrying any identification.It referred questions about her detention to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Saunders says the woman’s French citizenship likely complicated things, as she could not simply be deported to Canada.He says, typically, joggers or dog-walkers don’t stray so far into the U.S. before they’re stopped and given a warning.But he says the beach where the woman reportedly was lost has no border signs, so the mistake is understandable and the length of time she says she was detained seems excessive.last_img read more

Ministerial meeting on Africa highlights January agenda of UN Security Council

While keeping a close watch on the Haitian elections, the crisis in the Horn of Africa and other hotspots around the world, the United Nations Security Council plans to hold a ministerial-level meeting on Africa’s Great Lakes region as a high point of its January agenda, the body’s President for the month said today.“This is time to revisit and have a high-profile discussion involving the ministers after the Security Council Mission of last year,” said Augustine Mahiga, Permanent Representative of the United Republic of Tanzania, which holds the rotating Presidency for January, as he outlined the month’s agenda at a Headquarters press conference.Mr. Mahiga said that his country, being part of the Great Lakes region, was naturally concerned with recent, mostly positive, developments involving its neighbours. The 27 January meeting will be a particularly opportune time to assess developments in Burundi following its successful transition to a democratically elected Government, and to give encouragement to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) following the recent referendum that should lead to elections on 30 June, he said.“We expect this to be a very important meeting with some important outcomes,” Mr. Mahiga said, predicting that the Council would adopt a related resolution aimed at helping to consolidate peace in the region.The meeting would be attended not only by foreign ministers from the Great Lakes region, but also by those of Council members. Also invited was the diplomatic Group of Friends of the Great Lakes, which includes the European Union, Scandinavian countries, Canada and the United States.Among other central topics to be addressed in January will be the Haitian elections, which were scheduled to be held early in the month but have been postponed. Council Members want to learn more about the circumstances of that delay, so have called a meeting on an urgent basis for Friday.Another urgent matter is the current situation of the UN Mission to Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE), which Secretary-General Kofi Annan recently called “untenable” because of tensions between the two Horn of Africa countries. Consultations on that issue are expected on 9 January.Briefings or reports on the Sudan, DRC, Afghanistan, Western Sahara, Côte d’Ivoire, Kosovo and other issues on the Council’s agenda have been scheduled as well.On 23 January the Council will discuss the UN Office in Timor-Leste (UNOTIL) at a public meeting which will be addressed by that country’s President. read more

Over 35 million people in droughthit areas of Africa to receive food

The United Nations food relief agency today announced it is scaling up its efforts to assist more than 3.5 million people in drought-hit areas of southern Africa, particularly in Malawi, Zimbabwe and Lesotho, who are now facing the start of the hunger season. “Large numbers of smallholder farmers and their families are in the grip of what is set to be one of the harshest hunger seasons of recent years,” said the World Food Programme’s (WFP) Deputy Regional Director for Southern Africa, Brenda Barton. “With the help of governments, donors and regional organizations, we’re mobilizing resources to help the most vulnerable, not only with food distributions,” she added, “but also with innovative solutions like cash transfers via mobile phones so people can buy their own food.” Erratic rainfall during the last planting season meant that harvests in many areas were not sufficient to sustain the nutritional needs of farming communities this year and, even where food is available in local markets, it is often too expensive for the poorest households, according to WFP. To add to this situation, communities already struggling to feed their families are now bracing for the onset of the so-called ‘hunger season’ which traditionally lasts from December until harvest time in March. The UN agency notes that southern Malawi, southern Zimbabwe, and the southern highlands of Lesotho face particularly severe food shortages, while the prices of staple foods are increasing. Over the past year, the price of maize has increased 60 per cent in the markets of Lesotho and nearly 80 per cent in Malawi. WFP is working with the Government of Malawi and partners to distribute food to more than 1.8 million people living in rural communities in the southern part of the country, and has also launched a programme to transfer cash via mobile phones to more than 100,000 people, allowing them to buy food on local markets. In Zimbabwe, some 1.6 million vulnerable people face food shortages. While most of these are being assisted through food distributions, some 300,000 people are receiving cash to enable them buy their own cereals from local markets. In Lesotho, WFP is working with the Government and other UN agencies to find longer-term solutions to the food crisis caused by two consecutive years of crop failures, while assisting more than 200,000 people in farming communities. The current shortfall for WFP’s drought relief operation is $14 million for Malawi and $4 million for Lesotho. read more

UN expert urges Iran to halt executions of 12 individuals for drugrelated

The executions are reportedly scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, 27 August, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said in a news release today.“It is regrettable that the Government continues to proceed with executions for crimes that do not meet the threshold of the ‘most serious crimes’ as required by international law, especially the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Iran is State party,” Ahmed Shaheed, Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, said in the news release.According to OHCHR, one of the sentenced, Alireza Madadpour was arrested in November 2011 after 990 grams of crystal meth were found during a raid on a house he cleaned. He was tried by the Revolutionary Court located in Karaj city, near the country’s capital Tehran.The UN human rights office added that Mr. Madadpour’s state-appointed defence lawyer never met him and the trial lasted only 20 minutes. Furthermore, Mr. Madadpour’s request for pardon and retrial were not granted.“It is also troubling that courts continue to issue death sentences in trials that not only breach international fair trial standards but even domestic due process guarantees,” stressed Mr. Shaheed.The news release also said that Mr. Madadpour and the 11 other individuals were transferred to solitary confinement in Karaj Central Prison on 24 August in preparation for the execution.Executions for drug-related crimes not a deterrenceNoting serious concern regarding the Iranian authorities’ continuing reliance on drug-related executions as means to deter crimes, the UN rights expert stressed that various Government officials have gone on record to acknowledge that executions have not been effective in the prevention of drug-related crimes.According to the release, the Special Rapporteur also renewed his call on Iran to immediately institute a moratorium on executions and to restrict use of the death penalty for the “most serious crimes.”He also repeated his calls on the Iranian authorities to adhere to international standards guaranteeing fair trial and due process for those facing the death penalty.Special Rapporteurs and independent experts are appointed by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a specific human rights theme or a country situation. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. read more

La latéralité du cerveau des abeilles prouvée par une expérience

first_imgLa latéralité du cerveau des abeilles prouvée par une expériencePubliant ses travaux dans Scientific Reports, une équipe internationale a mis en évidence expérimentalement, chez l’abeille, une latéralisation du cerveau : chaque côté contrôle certaines fonctions, tout comme chez l’homme.Avec un peu moins d’un million de neurones, le cerveau des abeilles est bien différent du nôtre, qui en compte des dizaines de milliards. Cependant, un point commun vient d’être mis en évidence par des scientifiques de l’University of New England (Australie), de l’Université de Trente (Italie) et de l’Institut Konrad Lorenz (Autriche) : la latéralité.À lire aussiLe mariage aiderait à prévenir les risques de démence, mais pourquoi ?Le cerveau humain est divisé en côté droit – qui contrôle la moitié gauche du corps – et côté gauche -qui contrôle la moitié droite du corps. Or, un phénomène similaire semble exister chez l’abeille. Pour le découvrir, les chercheurs ont enlevé l’antenne droite ou gauche de quelques-uns de ces insectes, puis observé leur comportement social.Les individus ayant conservé l’antenne droite se sont montrés plus rapides à reconnaître les congénères de leur ruche, exhibaient leur langue – prémisse du nourrissage social de congénères affamés – et repoussaient normalement les envahisseurs. En revanche, les abeilles dotées uniquement d’une antenne gauche peinaient à distinguer leurs ennemis de leurs amis – qu’elles ne voulaient d’ailleurs pas nourrir.Ceci montre, selon les auteurs, que le cerveau de l’abeille, comme le nôtre, présente une latéralité. Les chercheurs pensent également que l’antenne droite pourrait contrôler un autre comportement complexe des abeilles : leur fameuse “danse frétillante”, par laquelle un individu peut indiquer à ses congénères la localisation d’une source de nourriture.Le 30 juin 2013 à 18:19 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Orlando Leaders Hope to Extend Effort to Relocate Simulation Workers

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Local leaders in Central Florida are hoping to purchase at least two more buildings in Orlando as part of an effort to retain the area’s defense simulation cluster in the event of a new BRAC round.The state so far has approved $42 million to start moving 3,000 defense workers involved in simulation, training and gaming from 200,000 square feet of leased space adjacent to Naval Support Activity Orlando. In February, the state purchased an 84,000-square-foot building near the Central Florida Research Park.“We will make it happen,” said Thomas Baptiste, chairman of the Metro Orlando Defense Task Force. “It’s just a matter of how long is it going to take. The writing is on the wall here for the community. The engine that drives our industry here is the military presence at the research park,” he told the Orlando Sentinel.The state is in “early discussions” about potential buildings it could purchase. “We don’t necessarily have a clear path ahead, but it has to get done,” Baptiste said.Moving the military and civilian personnel, who primarily oversee contracts, to state-owned buildings at the University of Central Florida is intended to save DOD from paying to lease commercial office space at the research park.Mark Cancian, a senior adviser with the Center for Strategic and International Studies, applauded the initiative for trying to anticipate what issues DOD will focus on during the next round of base closures.“Where communities often have problems is areas where they didn’t get their act together,” Cancian said. “Having this group form, there is a very good hedge … against the closings, in case there is a BRAC.” last_img read more

Of course, it was not an easy feat for Khloe and her baby True. The revelation of the news was followed by a lot of drama including when Khloe took up the social media platform to address the reports and confirm that they are in fact, true.In a sneak peek video of the upcoming episode, as shared by E! News, Khloe’s reaction is recorded as she finds out about Tristan and Jordyn’s cheating. A family friend, Larsa Pippen is heard saying, “Tristan and Jordyn were all over each other last night,” while Khloe is seen wiping her tears.

She also quotes, “I’m just like, ‘What were you thinking?'” in the clip. As for Khloe, her reaction goes like this, “I knew who he was — I never in a million years thought that’s who she was.” She further adds, “It just sucks it has to be so public,” while crying. Episode previewInstagramRight after reports of Tristan Thompson cheating on Khloe with Jordyn Woods surfaced online, Woods did deny having sex with him. However, she did admit that Thompson kissed her and that she visited his house after the infamous party. In a tell-all interview with Jada Pinkett Smith on her show, Red Table Talk, Jordyn did make her appearance to explain her side of the story.

We’re all in plain sight.” Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner InstagramWoods did spend the night at Thompson’s house until 6 in the morning. “In my life, in my world, it makes sense,” she said. “Two nights before, I had been on kind of a partying binge. That wasn’t the first place I stayed until 6 in the morning. There was always somebody there while I was there. Even up until the moment that I left, there were people there. I finally look outside and I’m like, ‘Look, the sun’s coming up. I need to take myself home.'”Admitting that Tristan did kiss her, “It was like a kiss on the lips, but no tongue kiss, no making out,” she said. “Nothing. But I don’t think that he’s wrong either, because I allowed myself to be in that position. And when alcohol’s involved, people make dumb moves or people get caught up in the moment.” Woods did state that they did not have sex.last_img read more

Personal Finance How to grow small savings to Rs 1 crore

first_imgAn Indian money changer shows new Indian rupee currency notes to a customer while sitting on the side of a road in Kolkata on August 23, 2013DIBYANGSHU SARKAR/AFP/Getty ImagesMost individuals believe that investing small sum will not guarantee good returns and therefore wait for a large sum to start investments.That’s precisely why many of them defer their investments indefinitely and aren’t able to meet their financial goals.But to everyone’s surprise, an investment of merely Rs 5,000 through a monthly systematic investment plan (SIP) in an equity scheme would help them to create a corpus of Rs 1 crore in a little over 20 years.Here’s how SIPs can help individuals fulfill their investment objectives:1. Finance your future dreamsThe ultimate objective of investing is to achieve financial goals like buying a house or creating a corpus for your children’s future education. SIPs can help you achieve these goals over a period of time through small but regular investments.2. Become disciplined with savingsSIPs help you inculcate the habit of saving regularly. Investing regularly in small amounts may often lead to better results than investing a huge sum.3. SIPs offer flexibilitySIPs offer the flexibility to select an amount that you intend to invest. SIP is a simple, convenient and affordable way to invest for your future with as little as Rs 500 every month.4. Reduces exposure to stock market volatilityThrough an SIP, one has the option to invest in equity markets irrespective of the bulls and bear phases. By investing a fixed amount every month, one may be able to pick up more units when the prices are low and vice versa.5. The power of compoundingCompounding is a disciplined investor’s best friend. A Systematic Investment Plan is one of the most effective means to beat market volatility and benefit from the power of compounding.(With inputs from HSBC Mutual Fund report)last_img read more

After a few minutes, wrap an ice cube in a clean cloth and apply it on the skin for a few seconds at a time. This helps to close the pores. Ice applications are also helpful in dealing with acne conditions. If acne eruptions look red and inflamed, ice would help the condition to subside.

Masses of Burundi refugees show up in Tanzania

Don Shooter shows health improvement Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — Cholera and severe diarrhea have broken out among tens of thousands of refugees from Burundi who are jammed into a village in Tanzania on the edge of Lake Tanganyika, with the Burundians overwhelming the health infrastructure and sanitation facilities, aid agencies said Tuesday.Between 500 and 2,000 people are arriving daily in the tiny fishing village of Kagunga, the World Health Organization said. The refugees have abandoned their country because of fears of political violence in the run-up to June elections, in which their president is seeking a third term. His candidacy has triggered demonstrations for three weeks in Burundi’s capital and amid the chaos, some military officer launched a coup last week, which failed within two days. Kagunga’s original population of 11,382 has increased to over 90,000 since April, WHO said in a statement. There is not enough safe water for drinking.With Kagunga surrounded by mountains, the refugees must wait to board a 100-year-old ship and make the three-hour trip to the port of Kigoma, the International Rescue Committee said. The ship is transporting 600 passengers twice daily, leaving those who remain behind in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions, the aid group said.The IRC said it is providing medical care in Kagunga, on the boat and at a transit camp in Kigoma. After making it to Kigoma, around 16,000 refugees have moved on to Nyarugusu refugee camp, a journey of up to four hours by road.Cases of acute diarrhea and cholera have been confirmed, according to WHO.The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees office reported on Sunday that at least seven Burundian refugees had died of severe diarrhea.Demonstrators in Bujumbura, Burundi’s capital, say they will continue to protest until President Pierre Nkurunziza steps down at the end of his second term.Burundi’s Constitution states a president can be popularly elected to a five-year terms, renewable once. Nkurunziza maintains he can run for a third term because parliament elected him for his first one. Opponents say a third term violates the Constitution and peace accords that ended a civil war.
