People of South Sudan living in tinderbox after year of conflict warns

“The people of South Sudan are living in a tinderbox, with emotions high, an abundant flow of weapons and with both sides recruiting fighters, often forcefully and including children,” Mr. Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said in a statement issued to draw global attention to the increasingly desperate living conditions for the country’s people after a year of conflict. The High Commissioner also warned that inflammatory rhetoric is the rise and there has been sporadic fighting in which civilians have been killed and displaced and their property looted. With talks between the Government and opposition set to resume this week, Mr. Zeid urged “both sides to use the talks to restore calm and avert another human catastrophe in the country.” Currently, the high level of mistrust between communities, based on perceived support for either the Government or the opposition, means that violence is easily triggered. Reports of gross abuses of international human rights law are “all too common”, he added. “The hopelessness in the camps of internally displaced people is palpable,” Mr. Zeid said. “These are women, men and children who spend their days in terrible conditions – at the height of the rainy season, they sometimes had to wade through waist-deep mud. Children have not gone to school for a year now, and may not be able to for a long time. Healthcare is basic at best. They have no freedom of movement, and live in dread, with violence always just around the corner.” According to UN figures, there are 1.4 million displaced people within the country, and another half a million taking refuge in neighbouring countries. More than 97,000 people remain in compounds of the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) in very difficult conditions. “Even after the conflict ends, it will take months – if not years – for these families to be able to bring a semblance of normalcy to their lives. Their homes and livelihoods have been destroyed. They have missed the planting season. They have witnessed and experienced violence. The conflict has already taken a very heavy toll on civilians – it is time for both sides to acknowledge this needless suffering, and to make a serious, concerted effort to bring it to an end, without further delay or prevarication.” The High Commissioner called on political leaders to make clear, unequivocal public statements that the targeting of civilians is not permitted and will not be tolerated. “Impunity emboldens the perpetrators of abuses – and has most likely accentuated the brazen nature of the human rights violations that have occurred during this conflict,” he said. “It is crucial that justice and accountability are visibly made a top priority.”Mr. Zeid’s deep concern was echoed yesterday in a statement issued by the spokesperson for Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, which said: “The killing must stop now. The very premise of the country’s independence struggle – a new beginning that was supposed to be founded on tolerance, good governance, accountability and unity – is disappearing before our eyes.”He called on the leadership of both factions to agree to “an inclusive, power sharing arrangement” and begin a transitional phase of governance that would address “the root causes of the conflict and ensure accountability for the crimes committed over the past year.”“They must end the culture of impunity if reconciliation and a sustainable peace are to be achieved,” the statement added.“I call on the international community to put its collective weight behind the peace process led by the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and I commend the African Union Peace and Security Council for creating a Heads of State ad-hoc committee for this purpose. The United Nations will remain fully engaged in support of the peace process, the protection of civilians and the provision of humanitarian assistance.”Also today, the Security Council in a statement released by the 15-member body’s President expressed its “profound disappointment” that the aspirations of the South Sudanese people have not been met, and that instead their leaders’ actions have led to yet more fighting and division. The Council underscored its strong condemnation of the serious human rights violations and abuses that have caused the death of tens of thousands of civilians, the displacement of nearly 2 million people in just 12 months. It renewed its deep appreciation for the courageous actions taken by UNMISS to protect tens of thousands of civilians under threat of physical violence. The Council expressed its grave concern that given the continued disregard of the January 23, 2014 Cessation of Hostilities Agreement and the May 9, 2014 Agreement to Resolve the Crisis in South Sudan, and the absence of the establishment and implementation of a credible peace agreement, the risks of famine, state failure and regionalization of the conflict persist. In this regard, the Security Council urgently demanded that President Salva Kiir, former Vice-President Riek Machar and all parties refrain from further violence, implement the Agreement to Resolve the Crisis in South Sudan signed on May 9, 2014 by South Sudan and the SPLM/A (in Opposition), engage fully and inclusively in ongoing peace talks in Addis Ababa, uphold their commitment to establish a Transitional Government of National Unity, and allow and facilitate. It also underscored the importance of fighting impunity and ensuring accountability for serious violations and abuses of human rights. read more

Yemen UN report urges probe into rights violations amid entirely manmade catastrophe

“An international investigation would go a long way in putting on notice the parties to the conflict that the international community is watching and determined to hold to account perpetrators of violations and abuses,” said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein in a news release on the report.“I appeal to all the parties to the conflict, those supporting them and those with influence over them to have mercy on the people of Yemen, and to take immediate measures to ensure humanitarian relief for civilians and justice for the victims of violations,” he added.According to the report, which records violations and abuses of human rights and international humanitarian law since September 2014, such acts continue unabated in Yemen, with civilians suffering deeply the consequences of an “entirely man-made catastrophe.”Between March 2015, when the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) began reporting on civilian casualties, and 30 August, at least 5,144 civilians have been documented as killed and more than 8,749 injured.Children accounted for 1,184 of those who were killed and 1,592 of those injured. Coalition airstrikes continued to be the leading cause of child casualties as well as overall civilian casualties. Some 3,233 of the civilians killed were reportedly killed by Coalition forces.The report states that the past year witnessed airstrikes against funeral gatherings and small civilian boats, in addition to markets, hospitals, schools, residential areas, and other public and private infrastructure.The Popular Committees affiliated with the Houthis and the army units loyal to former President Abdullah Saleh (the Houthi/Saleh forces) were responsible for some 67 per cent of the 1,702 cases of recruitment of children for use in hostilities. The report stresses that “the minimal efforts towards accountability in the past year are wholly insufficient to respond to the gravity of violations and abuses continuing every day in Yemen,” adding that the National Commission established to investigate human rights violations in Yemen is not perceived to be impartial.The report also found that the governorates most affected by the conflict were Aden, Al-Hudaydah, Sana’a and Taizz. The humanitarian crisis – with nearly 18.8 million people in need of humanitarian aid and 7.3 million on the brink of famine – is a direct result of the behaviour of parties to the conflict, including indiscriminate attacks, attacks against civilians and protected objects, sieges, blockades and restrictions on movement, the report states. “In many cases, information obtained…suggested that civilians may have been directly targeted, or that operations were conducted heedless of their impact on civilians without regard to the principles of distinction, proportionality and precautions in attack. In some cases, information suggested that no actions were taken to mitigate the impact of operations on civilians,” the report states. read more

Lasagne disaster inspires the best headline ever

first_imgBRACE YOURSELVES. HERE it is. The best headline ever, courtesy of the Gaffney Ledger, a local paper in the US state of South Carolina. Source: JimRomenesko.comWhat? What could this possibly mean? Where is this “lasagna”? Why is it everywhere?Attempts to find out on the Gaffney Ledger website were met with a paywall, but the good folks at Deadspin have pulled some choice quotes from the story.Here’s how the lasagne got everywhere: A truck got stuck while attempting to cross some train tracks. As the two drivers were trying to get it free, they saw a train approaching.Both drivers managed to flee the truck and run to safety, but the trailer was not so lucky.The train… sliced through the trailer, carrying a portion of it with it as it continued down the tracks. Cartons and boxes of frozen food spilled all over the tracks. “There was an inch of lasagne ground into the pavement,” Turner said. “[The firefighters] came down with the truck to hose off the road but the water was beading up. They eventually used big buckets of detergent and brooms to scrub the roadway.”No one was injured, but the lasagne smeared all over the road did cause some problems for rush-hour commuters. Delightful.But at least one good thing did come from this disaster – that beast of a headline. Kudos, Gaffney Ledger. Kudos.Cat who saved child from dog ‘throws’ first pitch at baseball game> Newspaper misprint is hard on Sligo election candidate>last_img read more

US television presenter apologises after comparing black colleague to a gorilla

first_imgUS television presenter apologises after comparing black colleague to a gorilla “I said something yesterday that was inconsiderate, it was inappropriate, and I hurt people,” anchor Alex Housden said. A US TELEVISION anchor has apologised on-air after comparing her black colleague to a gorilla, NBC News reported.Alex Housden of KOCO 5 News in Oklahoma City made the remark last Thursday during a segment on an ape whose handler was running the local zoo’s Instagram for the day.When a video of a baby gorilla appeared on screen, Housden, who is white, turned to her black co-anchor Jason Hackett, and said that the ape “kind of looks like you,” NBC reported.The following day, a tearful Housden apologised to Hackett, saying: “I said something yesterday that was inconsiderate, it was inappropriate, and I hurt people.” Hackett accepted her apology, but acknowledged that the words “cut deep for me”.“I want this to be a teachable moment and that lesson here is that words, words matter,” he said. “There’s no doubt about that.”The incident comes amid heightened racial tensions in the US following a series of remarks by Republican President Donald Trump directed at elected representatives from the Democratic opposition that have been criticised as racist.The president in July said four Democratic lawmakers of color should “go back” to where they came from, then later called Baltimore, a majority-black city, a “dangerous and filthy place”.- © AFP 2019 Source: Keith Boykin/Twitter By AFP Share6 Tweet Email Image: Shutterstock/IxMaster 62,218 Views White TV anchor Alex Housden apologizes on air for saying her black KOCO TV co-anchor, Jason Hackett, looks like a gorilla at the Oklahoma City Zoo.pic.twitter.com/4N1BBs8o4K— Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) August 27, 2019 Image: Shutterstock/IxMaster Aug 28th 2019, 8:31 AM https://jrnl.ie/4785165 Wednesday 28 Aug 2019, 8:31 AM Short URL I want you all to know from the bottom of my heart, I apologise for what I said.

Greek day schools hike up fees

first_imgGreek day schools are increasing their tuition fees for the upcoming academic year of 2010. These increases are considered substantial but as school officials explain they are needed because of increased operating costs for the schools. Alphington Grammar is increasing fees by an average of 6 percent which aligns with the average fee increase at private schools of about 5 percent, compared with 8 percent in 2009.From prep up until Year 6 the tuition is $7,500 from Year 7 – Year 11 $8,970 and $10,112 for Year 12. “The increase is mainly due to increases in the cost of educational staff salaries so we can remain at the forefront in retaining and attracting quality staff comparable to the best in Victoria,” the School Development Manager of Alphington Grammar Judy Fetter pointed out to Neos Kosmos English Edition (NKEE).The same reason is cited by the Bursar of Oakleigh Greek Orthodox College, Arthur Kakavas. The increase in tuition fees for the school of Sts Anargiri ranges from 7.5 to 8.5 percent and 6 percent for the Early Learning Centre. “The reason for this increase is due to increased operating expenses in general, but in particular, the need to address the issue of increased teacher salaries as a result of the State Government’s substantial increase in 2008 and 2009,” Mr Kakavas highlighted. “The Federal and State governments have not as yet provided additional funding to Independent Schools such as ours and therefore, the difference between the two sectors must be funded by increasing tuition fees,” he further clarified. Mr Kakavas noted, however, that the school provides discounts for families with more than one child as well as financial hardship allowances for those families that need it.NKEE did contact the third Greek day school St John’s Greek Orthodox College but they had not provided fee information at the time of writing this report.

Mother accused of using Taser on son to wake him for church

first_img“He said some cuss words to me, and he said that his friends don’t have to go anywhere,” Dobbins told the news outlet. She went on to say she returned to her room, grabbed a taser, and returned to the doorway of her son’s room.“I had the taser in my hand, and I made the noise with the taser, and so, he was like, ‘I’m calling police’,” she said.Officers arrested Dobbins at her home.“He came back and said, ‘Put everything down,’ and I said for what?” Dobbins told Fox 10. “He said, ‘For tasing your son.’ I said, ‘I didn’t tase my son, I made the noise.’ He said that it’s domestic violence against a minor. So they handcuffed me. I start crying and got in the back of the police car.”A judge decided to release Dobbins without bail, but police impounded her Taser.The mother is now facing a child abuse charge and is expected to make another court appearance.“I don’t think I did anything wrong because you’re supposed to put God first and that’s all I was trying to do is tell my kids to put God first,” Dobbins told KNXV.

SELECTMEN NEWS Selectmen Consider Creating Finance DirectorTown Accountant Position

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Board of Selectmen recently receive a presentation from Rick Kingsley, of the University of Massachusetts Boston’s Collins Center for Public Management, after her reviewed the town’s financial management structure.The review was brought about by the forthcoming retirement of the entire Town’s Accountant’s Office, including Town Accountant Mike Morris.“Your financial structure was largely set up in your Town Manager Act, which was adopted in 1950,” Kingsley told the board. “It’s been almost 70 years since it’s been looked at in a detailed way.”During his review, Kingsley interviewed the department heads and staff members in each financial office, plus the town’s IT director. He also reviewed various documents provided by each office. He ultimately came up with several recommendations, chief among them — to create a Finance Director/Town Accountant position.Kingsley recommends elevating the Town Accountant’s position to that of the Finance Director/Town Accountant. The new position would oversee both the Treasurer/Collector’s office and Assessors’ office. The position would be responsible for the Town’s financial planning and operations, serving as the Town Manager’s right-hand person in creating and overseeing the town’s annual budget.Kingsley described several benefits that the new position would bring about. A Finance Director would create a focal point for finance and reduce the number of direct reports to the Town Manager. The Director would facilitate the formation of a financial team. The position would coordinate critical fiscal operations such as tax rate setting and tax billing.  The Director would ensure regular cash reconciliations and other sound financial controls. The would assess risk regularly to determine town vulnerabilities.Importantly, Kingsley also noted that finding a qualified Finance Director/Town Accountant is much easier that finding a standalone Town Accountant.“The labor market for accountants is highly competitive with a shortage of well-qualified accounting professionals,” explained Kingsley. “By enhancing the scope and authority of the position, you make the job more attractive, as does raising the compensation to $100,000-$125,000.”Kingsley noted that 7 of the 10 comparable towns near Wilmington already have a Finance Director position.Rather than amend the Town Charter, which would require a town vote and legislature approval, Town Manager Jeff Hull is recommending that Selectmen make a policy change, despite the fact that the approach has less permanency as future boards could easily change the position back.“It’s the suggested route because the process of hiring Mike [Morris’s] replacement is going to take place over the next few months,” said Hull. “There needs to be some measure of certainty which position that person will serve. They are two distinct roles and responsibilities, and targeting two different types of people with different skill sets.”“I would like board to consider the prospects of taking a vote to revise the town accountant position and to create a finance director/town accountant position at your next meeting,” added Hull. “As the position gets advertised, we can be clear what it is the town is seeking.”Selectmen asked for recommendations from the town’s Finance Committee and Town Accountant Mike Morris before taking an any vote.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
