7 January 2008The United Nations and its non-governmental partners are gearing up to bring emergency relief to tens of thousands of southern Africans, whose lives and livelihoods have been endangered by unusually early torrential rains in the Zambezi river basin. “Governments and international humanitarian organizations are scaling up their efforts to ensure a swift response and save lives,” UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator John Holmes said today of the flooding, which so far has hit Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Zambia the hardest. “But many of those affected are still struggling to recover from last year’s floods and cyclones. For this reason and in view of the long rainy season ahead, humanitarian needs in the region are likely to increase over the coming weeks. We must continue to support Governments responding to the increasing impact of these natural disasters.” In Mozambique alone some 56,000 people have so far been affected, including 13,000 relocated to resettlement centres after heavy rains in the region sharply swelled the Zambezi, Pungue, Buzi and Save rivers. Last week the authorities declared the highest-level alert in several areas of the country, and search and rescue operations are ongoing. “The humanitarian community stands ready to support the Government in the ongoing response,” UN Resident Coordinator Ndolamb Ngokwey said. “Over the past few months, we have been working closely with national authorities to put in place contingency plans to ensure that needs of those affected by the flooding are met expeditiously.” UN teams deployed to the affected regions are undertaking a rapid assessment in key areas, such as agriculture, water and sanitation, nutrition, education and child protection. In anticipation of this year’s rainy season, emergency supplies had already been pre-positioned in several strategic locations in flood-prone areas. The supplies for distribution include shelter and non-food items, to enable a quick first-line response. Localized flooding is common in Mozambique during the southern Africa rainy season from November to March. Last year, an estimated 285,000 people were affected along the Zambezi River Basin. As rising water levels from heavy rains flooded low-lying areas, over 100,000 people took refuge in temporary accommodation centres. In Zimbabwe civil protection officials and their UN, Red Cross and non-governmental organization (NGO) partners responded late last month to floods affecting some 3,000 people in the north of the country as well as more than 5,000 others along the south-eastern border with Mozambique, many of whom have returned home. While the situation is now stable, the Government is maintaining a close watch on flood-prone areas. In Zambia, the Government estimates that several hundred people may have been affected by floods in the south and it has launched a multimillion-dollar contingency plan to deal with the effects of floods. Already, 34 of 72 districts have been put on red alert. “We are greatly concerned at the emergency responses this early in the rainy season,” said Kelly David, Head of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) for Southern Africa. “If this continues, we can expect a substantial impact.”
“During the last five years, we have witnessed 15 wars and armed conflicts, launched or renewed,” Minister Szijjártó stated. “And nowadays Europe has to face a war as well,” he added, referring to the conflict in Ukraine. Turning to economic issues, the Hungarian politician said no one has to be an economist to see that the situation is “unsustainable,” noting that Europe contains 7 to 8 per cent of the world’s population, producing 15 to 16 per cent of the world’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), while distributing “50 per cent of the world’s “social welfare spending.” Meanwhile, he said mass migration had been the most difficult challenge, but that unfortunately “Europe has not been able to find the proper answers yet.” “What we have been facing is not a refugee crisis, it’s much more than that and much more complicated than that,” he underlined, adding that Hungary is located on the most “intensive” migration route. “This mass migration is composed of asylum seekers, economic migrants, and also some foreign fighters, unfortunately,” he declared, adding that if Europe does not address the challenge now, it will have to face it in the future. Furthermore, he stressed that the situation has resulted from a series of “bad international political decisions,” as well as from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) gaining additional territories. “If we cannot get control over our borders, if we cannot decrease the influx, if we cannot decrease the pressure, then Europe can be destabilized as well – first the peripheries, and then even the centre – so I would like to stress again it’s a global challenge, that needs a global answer, global solution, based on global participation.” He added that instead of addressing the consequences of conflicts, the UN must focus on stabilizing the situation, while Member States needed to put together a proposal to set quotas and ensure that Europe is able address the increase of services. Meanwhile, in his remarks, the Permanent Representative of San Marino to the United Nations, Daniele D. Bodini, spoke about the global challenges of international migration and conflict. Permanent Representative of San Marino, Daniele D. Bodini, addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Cia Pak “Every day we are witnessing the tragic migration from Africa and Asia towards Europe,” said Mr Bodini. “These desperate people leave their countries and their families behind to flee from conflicts, violence, and persecution. Thousands of them already died in the Mediterranean Sea.” He said that his county was pleased to see the organization of a high-level meeting on strengthening cooperation on migration and refugee movements to address the issue. Mr. Bodini also spoke about Iraq and Syria, “where an ongoing inhumane ethnic and religious cleansing is carried out with unprecedented ferocity.” He said that he hoped that, a diplomatic solution would be achieved in the near future. He also noted the need for Security Council reform, saying: “We believe that a reform of the Council shall include an enlargement in the category of non-permanent members and a more balanced geographical distribution,” he said, adding that he believed it should be achieved with “the widest possible consensus.”
Only 14 per cent of officers are from black and ethnic minority communitiesCredit:PA Met Commissioner Cressida Dick wants the force to be more representative of London as a whole Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. It could take more than 100 years for Scotland Yard to recruit enough black officers to make the force representative of London’s ethnic make-up, the Met Commissioner has admitted.Two decades on from the publication of the watershed Macpherson report, which labelled the Met “institutionally racist”, Cressida Dick, acknowledged there was still work to do to encourage people from all communities to join the police.But she said the force recognised the challenge and was not complacent about continuing to transform policing in the capital.Only 14 per cent of police officers in the capital are from BAME (black and ethnic minority) communities, compared to 43 per cent of the London population.The figure is even lower among senior ranks with just 13 superintendents, four chief superintendents and one chief officer in the force. “If we continue even with the great progress we’ve made it would take over 100 years to be representative.”She also revealed that there were more grievance procedures lodged by black and ethnic minority officers and staff in the Met than from other groups. The Commissioner said she did not believe that the Met was still institutionally racist, saying: “I simply don’t see it as a helpful or accurate description. This is an utterly different Metropolitan Police.”After Stephen Lawrence was murdered by a racist gang in south-east London in 1993, the bungled police investigation into his death led to allegations of racism, corruption and incompetence within the Met.Sir William Macpherson was commissioned by the government to carry out a review of Scotland Yard’s handling of the case and in 1999 he published a scathing report accusing the force of institutional racism and recommending 70 reforms.Ms Dick said 20 years on from its publication, the Met was a completely different place. She said: “The murder of Stephen Lawrence has defined my generation of policing.”If it wasn’t for Stephen’s parents’ dignity, passion and tireless drive to make sure the recommendations made in the report were, and continue to be implemented, we wouldn’t have seen the change and improvements we have in London, society and policing across the country.” Clare Davies, the Met head of recruitment, acknowledged progress was slow, but said the numbers were going in the right direction and said the force was committed to improving recruitment from under represented communities.She said: “We ended 2018 with 4,200 black and ethnic minority officers working for the Met Police, that’s just over 14 per cent of officers. That’s a significant increase from 1999. For many the progress is too slow and some would say we need to do more than we have done with regards to recruitment and representation.
1,200 INSTITUTIONS from across Europe – including banks, internet providers and governments – are today being hit by a deliberate ‘cyber’ attack.The deliberate attack is part of an EU-wide experiment to see how institutions would handle a sustained malicious attack – and aims to identify what measures are needed to avoid such an attack happening in real life.The simulated ‘distributed denial of service’ attack (DDoS) attack sees sites deliberately bombarded with page requests – a tactic which means legitimate web traffic is squeezed out and cannot be processed. Typically the goal of the attack is to send a site offline altogether.Larger sites regularly attract unsuccessful DDoS attacks, though coordinated attacks on a larger scale are becoming more regular occurrences. Earlier this year several Irish government websites were knocked offline by such an attack.If such a co-ordinated attack was to be effective in real life, it could result in massive disruption for millions of people across Europe, and cost billions in lost economic output.“This is the first time banks and internet companies have been part of an EU-wide cyber-attack exercise,” Neelie Kroes, the European Commission for the Digital Agenda, said.“This cooperation is essential given the growing scale and sophistication of cyber-attacks.“Working together at European level to keep the internet and other essential infrastructures running is what today’s exercise is all about.”

I felt I was required to under the rules of the Department of Justice.And while he had recused himself from the Russia probe, Sessions insisted, “I did not recuse myself from defending my honour against scurrilous and false allegations.”Despite Sessions’ statement about the reasons for his recusal, the attorney general did not actually step aside from the Russia probe until 2 March, the day after The Washington Post reported on his two previously undisclosed meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.Days after that, Sessions also corrected his confirmation hearing testimony to inform the committee about the two meetings with Kislyak. Senate Intelligence Committee member Senator Ron Wyden. Source: J. Scott ApplewhiteDemocratic Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon asked Sessions about suggestions arising from Comey’s testimony last week that there was something “problematic” about his recusal.Wyden asked Sessions what problematic issues existed.“Why don’t you tell me? There are none, Senator Wyden, there are none,” Sessions insisted, his voice rising. “This is a secret innuendo being leaked out there about me, and I don’t appreciate it.” Source: Jacquelyn Martin/PA ImagesSessions lent his support to the special counsel, Robert Mueller, who is now in charge of the Justice Department’s Russia investigation.“I have confidence in Mr Mueller,” he said.At a separate hearing Tuesday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, overseeing that effort since Sessions stepped aside, said he’s seen no basis for firing Mueller, the former FBI director he appointed as special counsel.He said he would agree to dismiss Mueller only if there were a legitimate basis to do so, and an order from the president would not necessarily qualify.Mueller also won votes of support Tuesday from the top two Republicans in Congress, House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, both of whom said they have confidence in him.As for his role in Comey’s firing, Sessions told senators that he and his second-in-command, Rosenstein, had a “clear view … that we had problems there, and it was my best judgment that a fresh start at the FBI was the appropriate thing to do. And when asked I said that to the president.” Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner, left, and Chairman Sen. Richard Burr, listen as Attorney General Jeff Sessions testifies. Source: J. Scott ApplewhiteAsked about Trump’s own contention that the president fired Comey with the Russia probe in mind, and regardless of any recommendation from anyone else, Sessions said:I guess I’ll just have to let his words speak for themselves. I’m not sure what was in his mind specifically.Sessions refused to say whether he had ever discussed the Russia investigation with Trump, arguing that he could not disclose private communications with the president.Democratic senators pressed Sessions on the legal rationale for his refusal to discuss those private conversations, as Sessions acknowledged that Trump had not asserted executive privilege around the hearing.He asserted that “I am protecting the right of the president to assert if it he chooses and there may be other privileges that may apply.”Ahead of the hearing there had been suggestions that Sessions might have had a third, unreported, encounter with Kislyak, at the Mayflower Hotel in April 2016, where candidate Trump was giving his first major foreign policy speech. Source: J. Scott ApplewhiteSessions was adamant that he did not have a private meeting with Kislyak at that event. But he did allow for the possibility that he encountered him in a reception that he says was attended by a couple dozen people, though he said he had no specific recollection of that.Democratic senators have seized on the possibility of a third meeting at that event to suggest that Sessions has not been forthcoming about the extent of his communications with the ambassador.Senators Al Franken of Minnesota and Patrick Leahy of Vermont have sought an FBI investigation and have requested to be briefed on what the bureau knows about any such encounter.On another hot-button issue, Senator Marco Rubio, a former nominee for the Republican presidential nomination, asked Sessions whether Trump records his conversations in the White House.Trump has suggested there might be tapes of his encounters with Comey; Comey said last week that “lordy” he hopes there are.“I do not” Sessions said when asked whether he knows whether the president records his conversations.“I don’t know Senator Rubio, probably so,” Sessions added, when Rubio asked whether any such tapes would have to be preserved.Read: Melania and Barron Trump finally swap New York penthouse for the White HouseRead: US attorney general Jeff Sessions the next to face grilling over Russian interactions Tuesday 13 Jun 2017, 10:45 PM https://jrnl.ie/3441092 ‘Detestable and appalling lie’: Jeff Sessions testifies on Russian links to US election The US Attorney General contradicted some claims made by former FBI director James Comey last week.

During that hearing, Comey said that President Donald Trump hinted strongly that the investigation into ex-national security advisor Mike Flynn.In his appearance before former colleagues today, Sessions also contradicted a statement made by Comey during last week’s hearing. Source: Alex Brandon AP/Press Association ImagesComey told the intelligence committee that, after an encounter with President Trump in which he said Trump pressured him to back off an investigation into the former national security adviser, Comey ”implored” Sessions to make sure he was never left alone with the president again – but that Sessions didn’t respond.“He didn’t recall this, but I responded to his comment by agreeing that the FBI and Department of Justice needed to be careful to follow department policy regarding appropriate contacts with the White House,” Sessions said. Source: Andrew HarnikThe former Alabama senator defended himself against accusations that he misrepresented himself during his confirmation hearing by saying he hadn’t met with Russian officials during the campaign.Sessions argued that in the context of that hearing, “my answer was a fair and correct response to the charge as I understood it.”Sessions said he recused himself from the Justice Department’s current Russia investigation only because of a regulation that required it because of his involvement in the Trump campaign. He never, he insisted, knew anything about the Russia probe or had any role in it.“Many have suggested that my recusal is because I felt I was a subject of the investigation myself, that I may have done something wrong,” Sessions added.

An online Neos Kosmos poll this week indicated that the Greek community in Australia continues to have a strong political allegiance to the Labor Party. When the question ‘Who do you think will win the election?’ was asked on our website, 58 per cent of respondents stated they expected Labor to win, 37 per cent sided with the Coalition, with 2 per cent going with the Greens and 3 per cent expecting another party to win. These findings might reflect the wider expectations created by Kevin Rudd’s come back in the leadership of the Labor Party and in the Prime Ministership of Australia. These results though, might also reflect an expectation created by a life-long association of the majority of first generation Greeks in Australia with the Labor Party, an association that remains strong in the first generation, while it is also passed on to a significant number of subsequent generations of Greek Australians. This is not surprising, since research in countries such as the United Kingdom and the USA has indicated there is a link between ethnicity and voting behaviour. The Labor party in Australia and other similar parties abroad tend to benefit from the ethnic minority vote. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram
Climat : trop de gaz à effet de serre pendant encore des années ?Allemagne – Suite à l’échec du sommet de Copenhague, les négociations internationales sur le réchauffement climatique ont repris à Bonn. Mais selon le plus haut responsable climat de l’ONU, Yvo de Boer, il faudra certainement encore patienter au moins une décennie avant que les objectifs de réduction des émissions de gaz à effet de serre (GES) permettent d’enrayer le changement climatique.”Je ne pense pas que le processus puisse aboutir, dans les dix ans à venir, à des objectifs de réduction adaptés” a déclaré Yvo de Boer lors d’un point presse. Et le secrétaire exécutif de la convention climat des Nations unies (UNFCCC) d’ajouter : “Dans ce processus, nous aurons besoin de nombreuses étapes mais je suis convaincu que nous y parviendrons à long terme”.À lire aussiQui est Greta Thunberg, proposée pour un prix Nobel à seulement 16 ans ?PourChristiana Figueres, qui succédera à Yvo de Boer à la tête de l’UNFCC, ce sont des décennies qui seront nécessaires à la signature d’un accord adapté. Très pessimiste, elle déclare à 53 ans : “Je ne pense pas que je verrai de ma vie un accord final sur le climat”. Les représentants de près de 180 pays sont actuellement réunis à Bonn, en Allemagne, pour préparer la conférence qui se tiendra à Cancun en fin d’année. D’après Yvo de Boer, il y a très peu de chance que l’issue de ce sommet puisse se traduire par la signature d’un accord contraignant sur la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique. Selon lui, la priorité doit par conséquent être mise sur l’aide financière promise aux pays les plus pauvres.Lors du sommet de Copenhague, les pays riches ont en effet promis 30 milliards de dollars aux nations pauvres d’ici 2012. Une somme visant à les aider à lutter contre le changement climatique et à affronter ses impacts. A l’horizon 2020, ce fonds devra atteindre 100 milliards de dollars par an. “Bien sûr les temps sont durs, surtout en Europe, mais réunir 10 milliards de dollars par an pendant trois ans dans l’ensemble des pays industrialisés n’est pas une chose impossible”, a assuré Yvo de Boer. Parvenir à réunir cette somme permettra selon lui “d’établir une plus grande confiance” entre pays riches et pays en développement.Le 13 juin 2010 à 20:06 • Emmanuel Perrin
Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has shared his hopes that the Blues can still end the season in the top four in the Premier League, but only if they won all of their remaining fixtures.Their extremely poor performance throughout the whole season has helped them to the fifth place in the Premier League standings, trailing after the Spurs with 10 points. However, considering the fact that they have six games prior to the end of the campaign, if they were to get all of the 18 points available, they would most likely take at least the fourth spot.“It is difficult, very difficult, but it is possible. In football anything can happen. So we need it believe, we need to trust in each other and try to win every game. That’s it,” Eden Hazard shared, according to SportsMole.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“We have six games to play in the league, and if we win the six games but don’t finish in the top four, at least we did everything. So no regrets, let’s play one month.”“We know we are playing for Chelsea, when you are playing for Chelsea, you need to give everything to the end of the season, that’s it. If you achieve something, that’s good, but if not you will try for the next year,” Hazard went on to add.
Brazil legend Rivaldo believes that Vinicius Junior hasn’t played yet because the coach doesn’t think he’s readyExpectations are high for the 18-year-old following his €40m arrival from Brazilian side Flamengo earlier this summer.But, despite an impressive pre-season with Los Blancos in their US tour, Vinicius was left as an unused substitute in the club’s UEFA Super Cup defeat to Atletico Madrid and last Sunday’s opening day win over Getafe in La Liga.Reports have suggested that head coach Julen Lopetegui is trying to protect the teenage winger.But Rivaldo, who spent five years at Barcelona, believes that Vinicius’ absence means that he has not earned a spot in the team yet.“If Vinicius doesn’t play then it’s the coach’s decision, but not one to protect the player,” he explained in an interview with BRT News, via Marca.“If he has been included in the squad then it’s because he’s ready to play.“He shouldn’t lose any more game time.”Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.Real president Florentino Perez is hopeful that the young Brazilian will develop in a similar way to Neymar when he was at Barcelona.“The beginning of the season is the best moment to hand a player his debut,” continued Rivaldo.“When the big matches arrive then it’s more complicated to play a debutant.”La Liga have recently announced that they will be hosting some of their domestic fixture in the United States.“It seems to be a financial issue,” speculated Rivaldo.“It doesn’t take into account the supporters of the Spanish teams.”Rivaldo scored 130 goals in 235 games for Barcelona and won La Liga twice during his five-year spell at Catalonia.

If youre designing your room from scratch, choose the rug first as these decors are the cornerstone for any setups foundation. Experts list some more options on revamping your interiors with rugs: By popular belief, rugs are meant to be used on the floor under your furniture, but the new trend is to use them as wall art, especially semi-geometric patterns. Build the colour scheme of the room around the rug, pulling shades from the rug as colours for curtains, cushions and lamp shades. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfDon’t be afraid to play around with different rug textures. When your walls and upholstery are fairly subdued, you can try a rug with embossed (high-low) effect, adding more depth and interest to the room. A rug is one of the best finishing touches you can invest in for your interiors. The right one has the power to really bring a room together, add colour and comfort, define a space… transform it, even. Rugs have long been a signifier of luxury, offering warmth and underfoot comfort as well as texture and pattern. A well-placed rug can be used to divide spaces, define a mood, or simply showcase the art of tapestry across your floors. Here are some ways you can overhaul your interiors using this statement accessory. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveLayer a contrasting rug over an existing carpet to infuse texture and warmth. A smaller rug over a bigger one or a printed rug over a solid-coloured one would be ideal. But be wary of layering too many “warring” patterns in a room; the key is to complement the palette of the room. Use a rug as a focal point in a room. Pick a colour from the rug and reflect it throughout . It’s easier to nip choices in a room to complement the rug, rather than the other way around. Use a patterned or animal skin rug as a wall hanging for a ski-lodge effect. Or drape over a plush sofa for a luxe yet romantic feel. Opt for a large rug with a soft feel underfoot to place under your bed to completely change the look of your bedroom spaces. Rugs aren’t just for winter. Opt for a summer-appropriate soft update in calming hues, geometric pattern, or lighter texture to make your scheme work for the current season and beyond. In larger rooms, use an understated design with a border to ground the space together. Let the way you arrange your furniture dictate the shape of your rug – the assumption that a rug has to be a rectangle may keep you from experimenting with a array of choices available.
