He said only the UNP is able to give proper leadership to the country. He said that UNP leader and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is striving to take the country on a new path. (Colombo Gazette) Speaking at an event in Sammanthurai, Kiriella said that the UNP has the support, not just of the Sinhalese and Buddhists, but also of the Tamils, Muslims and Christians. The United National Party (UNP) claims it has the support of all the communities in the country, including the minorities.UNP Parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella said that the public have rejected political parties which operate based on race and religion.
“Each of them could be you or me, if we lived in a just slightly different place, or different time. Each one should serve as an appeal to our common humanity. Would we like to have their problems?” he said at a dinner held last night in McLean, Virginia, to mark the 25th anniversary of the advocacy group Refugees International.A favourite sentence on a poster hanging near his UN office said, “A refugee would like to have your problems,” Mr. Annan told the dinner guests.He and his wife, Nane, received the first McCall-Pierpaoli Humanitarian Award, named for three RI staff members who died during a mission in Albania in 1999.The night was an occasion to pay tribute to the selfless women and men “who toil anonymously in dangerous places, often far from their homes, to help their fellow human beings. People who usually receive no recognition, no medals, no parades,” Mr. Annan said. read more

A lack of industrialization puts Africa’s long-term growth at risk, a senior United Nations official said today, as participants at the Third International Conference on Financing for Development discussed the economic transformation of the continent.“Manufacturing has stagnated over the continent during the past decade and makes up a shrinking share of Africa’s exports,” said Carlos Lopes, the Executive Secretary of the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA). “Africa’s growth has struggled to create adequate jobs for its growing youth and the only way it’s going to be able to do it is through industrialization.” Mr. Lopes was one of several speakers at a side event at the conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, that examined three critical issues for Africa’s transformation: modernizing agriculture; inclusive and sustainable industrialization; and sustainable infrastructure and energy.He noted that the shrinking contribution of agriculture to Africa’s gross domestic product (GDP) has been accompanied by growth in the contribution of the services sector rather than industry or manufacturing. Industry and manufacturing have been in fact been contributing less and less to the continent’s GDP, excluding parts of North Africa, where its contribution has stagnated. Africa currently accounts for less than two per cent of global manufacturing exports, Mr. Lopes pointed out. The percentage of manufactured goods in Africa’s exports to the world has fallen from 26 per cent in 1995 to 16 per cent in 2013. As a comparison, manufactured goods make 69 to 70 per cent of developing Asia’s global exports in 2013. Donald Kaberuka, President of the African Development Bank, called infrastructure the “signature of African development.” He noted that over the last decade during which he has led the institution, the Bank has put out $28 billion for infrastructure. This is almost three times what the Bank has done over 40 years. “This is because I concluded that the way African economies were growing, it was not possible to grow until we close the infrastructure gap,” he stated.Giving an overview of the situation, Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, Chairperson of the African Union Commission, told the gathering that by 2013, only a third of Africa’s population had access to electricity; 65 per cent had access to water; and only 38 per cent had access to sanitation. Also, in 2013, the continent spent four per cent of GDP on infrastructure, compared to 14 per cent by China in the same year. For a continent with abundant land and water, she noted, Africa imports a “ridiculous” amount of food and suffers from food insecurity. According to the UNECA, Africa imported 83 per cent of its food items from outside the continent in 2013.Ms. Zuma also stressed the need to move on the “African skills revolution,” and invest in empowering people – the young, women and men. “We are determined that our generation shall not be one of missed opportunities. Instead, we will remain steadfast in playing our part… to build an Africa that is peaceful, integrated, people-centred and prosperous and takes its rightful place in the world. Agnes Kalibata, President of AGRA [the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa], stated that sustainable and inclusive economic progress is nearly impossible when large segments of the continent’s population are stuck in subsistence farming.“While African economies have been growing and rising over the last 10 years, the vast potential of its agriculture has remained largely untapped,” she said, adding that evidence shows that investments made in the agriculture sector are considered more effective than investments made in many other sectors at reducing poverty and producing economic benefits and inclusive growth.“We also know that failing to invest in agriculture and smallholder farmers not only limits economic growth today but can also impede opportunities in the future. If farming families are unable to grow enough to feed their children, malnutrition will continue to grow with a severe cost to the human development of the next generation,” Ms. Kalibata stated.“As we look to the future, we all share a collective responsibility to ensure that the ‘Africa Rising’ narrative is a reality for all Africans. There’s no way this can be achieved without improving productivity and income for smallholder farmers.” read more
Freshman guard D’Angelo Russell is heading to the NBA according to ESPN. Russell led the Buckeyes in scoring in 2014-15.Credit: Mark Batke / Lantern photographerOhio State’s D’Angelo Russell is off to the NBA after being named a first team All-American in his only collegiate season, according to a report by ESPN.com.Russell declared for the 2015 NBA Draft on Wednesday after he led the Buckeyes with 19.3 points per game as a freshman last season, helping the team to a 24-11 record and an appearance in the round-of-32 in the NCAA Tournament.During an interview with ESPN.com, Russell said declaring for the NBA Draft was a “hard decision,” and added that he would have loved to play for OSU coach Thad Matta for one more year.“But at the same time I wanted to pursue my dream of playing in the NBA,” Russell said during the interview Wednesday. “I know what I am capable of and the sky’s the limit with effort. I know I have a lot to work on.”Russell is projected to be a top-five pick in the draft after becoming the second-highest scoring freshman in program history. On top of leading the team in scoring, Russell also led the Buckeyes with 5.7 rebounds per game and finished second on the team with 175 assists and 55 steals.The Louisville, Ky., native is OSU’s first “one-and-done” player since B.J. Mullens, who declared for the 2009 NBA Draft after just one season in Columbus.Coming out of Montverde Academy, Russell was ESPN’s 13th overall prospect, but the 6-foot, 5-inch guard decided to make the leap to the NBA after starting every OSU game he played.“You never know when this opportunity comes,” Russell told ESPN.com. “I believe I am ready because my approach was to unpack my bags, get committed to winning and listening to the coaches — as opposed to coming in and saying I am a pro and trying to leave. I wasn’t trying to get in and out at Ohio State.”After Russell’s announcement, the Buckeyes are set to lose six players from the 2014-15 roster. In addition to Russell, Matta’s squad will be without senior centers Amir Williams and Trey McDonald, senior guard Shannon Scott, senior forward Sam Thompson and redshirt-senior forward Anthony Lee.OSU is also set to bring in five new recruits in guards JaQuan Lyle, Austin Grandstaff and A.J. Harris, forward Mickey Mitchell and center Daniel Giddens. All five players are rated as four-star recruits by ESPN.While the Buckeyes readjust to life without their leading scorer, Russell will have to wait until the draft on June 25 in New York to find out his professional fate. read more
Senior police officers decided not to pursue Martin McGuinness over his alleged role in an IRA attack which killed nine people, it has been claimed. It has now emerged, following the death of Mr McGuinness at the age of 66 on Monday night, that police officers were allegedly told to drop the investigation against the senior Sinn Fein leader and former IRA chief of staff over the 1972 Claudy bombing – because any prosecution would have been too “politically sensitive.”Sources have told The Daily Telegraph that detectives with the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) believed by around 2007 that they had accumulated enough evidence against Mr McGuinness to question him over his role in what became known as ‘Bloody Monday’, when three-car bombs were set off in the town in one of the worst outrages of ‘the Troubles’.

The scene in Claudy after the IRA bombed the town in 1972, killing nine peopleCredit:Press Association Margaret Veitch, whose parents William and Agnes Mullan were murdered in Enniskillen, said: “I am so sorry for all the innocent victims of Northern Ireland because we will never, never get the true story.“Martin McGuinness chose to be a terrorist, he chose to go into government, he chose to take the bomb and bullet. My parents never had a choice – they died and we will never get justice.”Ann Travers, whose sister Mary, 22, was gunned down and her father, Tom Travers, a Catholic magistrate, badly injured in an IRA ambush in 1984, posted on the internet of her sadness that her family and others may not now get justice. Martin McGuinness in Ballymena, northern Ireland, in 2007Credit:KIERAN DOHERTY/Reuters However in August 2010, following an eight-year investigation, the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland published a report into the bombing which stated that the Royal Ulster Constabulary believed that the alleged role of Father James Chesney, a local Roman Catholic priest thought to be the IRA’s director of operations in South Derry, in the bombing was covered up by senior police officers, government ministers and the Roman Catholic hierarchy.No action was ever taken against Fr Chesney, who died in 1980. He said: “I’m very aware of the fact that Martin McGuinness had questions to answer in relation to the Claudy bomb, there were questions over the Enniskillen bomb and he also had questions to answer in relation to the death of Frank Hegarty. There are people who never got their answers.”McGuinness’s death prompted much praise for his journey from terrorist to architect of the Good Friday peace Agreement.Buckingham Palace let it be known that The Queen, who met McGuinness on a number of occasions, would be sending his widow a private letter of condolence. Kathyrn Eakin, who was killed in the 1972 IRA Claudy bombings.Credit:Press Association The Claudy bombing claims come as families of IRA victims expressed their fears that Mr McGuinness’s death meant he had has taken to his grave the truth about dozens of unsolved murders.Relatives spoke of their despair at the refusal of Mr McGuinness to discuss what had happened to loved ones before he succumbed to a rare heart condition.Austin Stack, whose father, an Irish prison officer, was murdered by the IRA in 1983, said there were serious questions over Mr McGuinness’s role in some of the worst atrocities of the period. She tweeted a picture of her sister and father, and wrote: “Enniskillen Families, Claudy families, Hegarty family, Gillespie family… I’m so sorry you never got the answers you deserved.”McGuinness had been accused of being present at the interrogation in 1986 of Frank Hegarty, an IRA informer who was later found shot in the back of the head.In 2015 Mr Hegarty’s son Ryan said Mr McGuinness should be questioned in connection with the murder.Mr McGuinness was also implicated in the murder of Patrick Gillespie in 1990, who was forced to drive a booby-trapped van to an Army checkpoint while his family were held hostage. Mr Gillespie and five soldiers were killed in the attack.While Northern Ireland deputy first minister, Mr McGuinness said allegations that he had prior knowledge of the Enniskillen bomb were “securocrat fantasy” and he denied any involvement in the death of Mr Hegarty or Mr Gillespie.A spokesman for PSNI said the force was not in a position to comment on the claims about the Claudy bombing at this stage. The Provisional IRA issued an immediate denial of responsibility and later claimed that “an internal court of inquiry” had found that its local unit did not carry out the attack. The Queen shaking hands with former IRA commander and Northern Ireland Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness on her arrival at the Lyric Theatre in Belfast, in June 2012Credit:Paul Faith/Press Association But Julie Hambleton, whose teenage sister Maxine was among 21 people murdered in the 1974 Birmingham pub bombings, said Mr McGuinness had refused to answer a letter requesting help in finding the killers.Miss Hambleton, who runs Justice 4 the 21 campaign, said: “With him the truth has died and that’s the big problem.“There are so many families here and in Northern Ireland he could have had information on, but with him the truth has died for many of these families and that is sad.“People are piling the praise on him but it isn’t valid. He didn’t come forward with the truth.”“He never ever reached out to victims and their families – one of our supporters wrote to him and they never had the courtesy to get back to us.”Miss Hambleton said those who may never learn the truth included the families of the so-called Disappeared, victims of the IRA whose bodies have never been found. It is thought that the remains of five victims are still missing. But it is now claimed that senior PSNI officers ordered the investigation be closed down for fear that any attempt to prosecute Mr McGuinness would wreck the delicate Northern Ireland peace process.The source said: “There was an appetite among a number of PSNI detectives to pursue the case against McGuinness over his role in the Claudy bombings.“But when they approached senior officers they were told point blank: ‘We are not prosecuting Martin McGuinness.’ It was felt by the top brass of the PSNI that it would have been simply too damaging to the peace process.”The Claudy bombing took place on 31 July 1972, when three car bombs were blown up on the town’s Main Street, killing nine people, including two teenagers and an eight-year-old girl, Kathryn Eakin. On the 40th anniversary of the bombing Mr McGuinness, who had been second in command of the Derry Brigade at the time, described the attack as “appalling and indefensible” and “inflicted on totally innocent people”.He added: “All of the families of those who died or were injured deserve and are entitled to the truth about the deaths of their loved ones. We must collectively increase our efforts to heal the deep hurt caused by the Claudy bombings.”The bombs were set off in Claudy, near Londonderry, on the day the British army launched Operation Motorman to clear barricades set up in so-called republican no-go areas. Labour MP Jess Phillips, who represents Birmingham Yardley, said: “People should be neither reviled or worshipped. I wish he’d helped my constituents find peace.”Mr McGuinness was also said to have been given prior warning of the Enniskillen ‘Poppy Day’ massacre in November 1987, in which 12 people were killed, many of them elderly. Nobody has ever been convicted of the atrocity.Stephen Gault whose father Samuel, 49, was murdered at Enniskillen, said: “Martin McGuinness has taken to the grave the truth and the answers that we need to be able to move forward. He knows who bombed Enniskillen. Initially my thoughts and prayers go out to the Enniskillen victims.“I will always remember Martin McGuinness as the terrorist he was. If he had been repentant my thoughts might have been slightly different. There was no remorse or repentance from him even up to his death.” read more
On November 26, the Air Corps celebrated the 50th Anniversary of helicopter operations in Ireland.Read: Irish fishing vessel detained off Cork coast>Read: Watch as an Irish Navy ship collides with a pontoon> FROM PATROLLING THE Irish seas to rescuing stranded people, the Irish Naval Service and Air Corps have had an extremely busy year.They have released their latest updates on the past 12 months, giving a great insight into their work.Pic: Defence ForcesMaritime Security OperationsSo far this year, during its 1382 patrol days the Naval Service has completed 989 boardings and made 16 detentions for alleged infringements of fishing regulations.The service patrols 220 million maritime acres of sea, an area which is over twelve times the land mass of Ireland.This year it detained the world’s largest fishing vessel from the Netherlands in a case that is currently before the courts.It also boarded and inspected fishing vessels from Ireland, United Kingdom, France, Spain, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Lithuania, Belgium and Denmark.A total of 25 fishing vessels were warned for 35 infringements. These ranged from incorrect boarding equipment to electronic reporting infringement, such as under recording of catch.Specialist Dive Team operationsThe Specialist Naval Service Dive Team has been called out to 51 operations so far this year.It took part in military operations including underwater maintenance of Naval Service fleet, disposing of explosive ordnance as well as berth clearances for visiting foreign warships.The Naval Service Dive Team has been involved in 14 separate search and recovery operations, and was asked to take part by the Coast Guard and An Garda Síochána. The remains of three people were recovered during these searches this year.Pic: Defence ForcesTraining2013 saw it continue its exchange programme with the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN). This year, the fourth group of RCN Officers embarked on Naval Service vessels, while S/Lt Shane Mulcahy was the first Irish Naval Officer to complete a course with the RCN.He qualified as a mine clearance diving officer after a gruelling 12 month course – and was named the top student.Other operationsIn May, the LÉ Aoife rescued a Norwegian couple stranded on their yacht 120nm south west of Ireland.This year saw the first female-to-female handover of Command on the LÉ Aoife from one female Captain to another.Pic: Defence ForcesAlso this year, the LÉ Emer was de-commissioned after 35 years in the Naval Service.Air CorpsMeanwhile, it was a busy year with Ambulance Missions for the Air Corps: they completed 103 Air ambulance missions, including national and international transfers of patients.Due to the increase in demand for air ambulances, the Air Corps now has dedicated crews on stand-by 24/7 for fixed wing and rotary wing with the ability to cover a range of needs, including organ retrieval and transport of patients with spinal or other serious injuries.Air Corps helicopter crews are the only pilots in the State capable to fly using specialist night vision goggles.Taking part in Flight Fest. Pic: Defence ForcesIn 2013 the Air Corps continued to support the HSE National Ambulance Service (NAS) in the pilot project to provide dedicated aeromedical support to the West of Ireland.This year the EAS answered 527 callouts from the National Aeromedical Co-ordination Centre up to 31 December – including a tasking on Christmas Day.Search and Rescue (SAR)The Air Corps conducted 24 SAR missions in 2013. Its missions included providing cover for the night time medical evacuation of crewman from a merchant vessel 250nm South West of Valentia on 20 October.The Air Corps’ rotary wing were also involved with several rescues this year, including four mountain rescues.The Air Corps deployed two helicopters to Northern Ireland on March 28 to the Co Down area to carry animal feed for some areas cut off by heavy snow.During one of the flights, the AW139 was tasked to provide assistance to two climbers who had become stranded on a rock face and were unable to move to safety. read more
Unlike recent videos about humans flapping their arms and taking flight, the YouTube movie posted above is the real deal. It depicts the brainchild of Candian PhD Peter Jansen, which is a real honest-to-goodness working Tricorder like the ones we have seen in Star Trek.Containing eleven different sensing modalities, the Tricorder-Mark 1 is capable of reporting on things like atmospheric temperature and humidity as well as distance using an ultrasonic sensor (sonar). Before you start yelling at the screen for Jansen to shut up and take your money, know that this project is entirely open-source, allowing you to build and modify your own unit.Jansen set out to create this device because of his strong belief in project-based learning coupled with his desire to spread the idea that, while there is so much we can see about science with our naked eyes, there’s much more happening that’s invisible to us.The Tricorder experiment was intended to provide a low-cost, accessible piece of hardware that would help people explore their surroundings in much the same way as the different “away-teams” did on the popular sci-fi franchise. In addition to the built in thermometer and sonar sensors, the Tricorder has nine more sensors stuffed into its little frame. These consist of: a magnetic field sensor, light-to-frequency converter, pressure sensor, infrared thermometer, liner polarization filters, GPS receiver, light-to-voltage converter, and an inertial measurement unit. Why so many? Because Jansen wants people to be able to detect as much as possible so that they can learn more about their environment.Jansen hasn’t stated how much the device cost to develop and build, but it looks like the parts list that he has posted on his site would make this a fairly inexpensive unit. If you’re looking for a science project to do with your child, or just for yourself for that matter, the Tricorder-Mark 1 may be just the ticket.I’m very curious as to whether or not Jansen will be entering his Tricorder into the Qualcomm X-Prize contest to win the $10 million reward for creating a working scanner.Read more at the the Tricorder Project, via Geekologie and Dvice read more
As we grow closer and closer to the launch of Windows 8, it is becoming clear what kind of devices we can expect to see. Manufacturers are targeting Windows RT and Windows 8, but are mostly doing so with devices that function as both tablets and laptops. These touch-enabled products are designed mostly to allow users to enjoy Windows 8 in a no compromise environment. Lenovo has dubbed their line “convertibles”, since they can be used as both a tablet and as a full-on laptop.The Yoga 11 and Yoga 13The Lenovo Yoga got its name from the ability to take the screen and fold it all the way back on itself. In fact, the tablet mode for this device is activated by folding the screen all the way back and touching the other side of the keyboard area. The Yoga comes in an 11-inch model and a 13-inch model, both offering the same 360-degree hinge.The Yoga 11 is a Windows RT device, sporting an nVidia Tegra 3 processor. Lenovo bills this device as the slimmest multi-mode PC, since the 2.8 pound device is only 0.62 inches at its thickest point. Since this is also one of the first multi-mode PC’s out there, crowning the Yoga 11 as the thinnest isn’t really the most important feature here. The 11.6-inch 1366×768 display on the Yoga 11 is accompanied by 2GB of RAM and up to 64GB of storage. The $799 price tag puts this device at the high end of most Tegra 3 devices, and is the only Windows RT device in Lenovo’s lineup.The Yoga 13 packs a lot more power than the 11, but has a price tag to match. This convertible can support either an i5 or an i7 processor, up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of SSD storage. The 1600×900 IPS display is powered by an Intel HD 4000 graphics card, and includes USB 2 and USB 3 ports. All this power cuts the reported battery life almost in half from the 13 hours reported to be in the Yoga 11, and 7 hours is fairly low by Ultrabook standards. Still, the 3.4 pound convertible is an impressive 13.3-inch laptop, and the form factor is certainly unique enough to turn some heads. Lenovo lists the starting price for the Yoga 13 at $1099, with no pricing available for a fully loaded version.The LynxOne of the more common designs for the no compromise Windows 8 device is to have the screen be removable from the keyboard entirely. This puts all the computing power in the screen area, but leaves the keyboard region for more battery life. The Lynx is Lenovo’s detachable Windows 8 device, and one of the first to come running an Intel Atom processor.If you have the two pieces together, the 2.86 pound Lynx look just like a laptop. Lenovo claims that the combined device will get you 16 hours of battery life, as well as a full keyboard. When you separate the 11.6″ 1366×768 display from the base, the 1.41 pound tablet exists with half the battery life. Having seen Windows 8 devices on Atom processors before, The Lynx should be pretty snappy, and the 400 nit display should be good to use indoors or outdoors.The Lynx is $599 for just the tablet, and $149 for the keyboard dock with the extra battery.The TwistThe last time hardware manufacturers got it in their heads that Windows could be used like a tablet, most of the devices that were made allowed the screen to pivot in the middle and close backwards on the keyboard. Most of those devices didn’t work well because the hardware wasn’t right for the time. The Twist convertible is taking another crack at that design, only now with the hardware and software to match.The 12.5″ Twist will come in 13,i5,and i7 flavors, starting at $849. This 250 12.8-inch IPS screen is coated in Gorilla Glass and offers a 7 hour battery with a 30 day standby. Lenovo has billed this device as being for small businesses and educational purposes. As the heaviest and thickest of the new Lenovo devices at 3.48 pounds and 0.79 inches, that claim is curious. The Twist is the only device in Lenovo’s new line to offer a 350 or 500GB HDD as an option instead of a 128GB SSD.The Twist offers some additional audio cancellation with the 720p webcam and Dolby Digital Home Theater, as well as an “Executive look and feel” with the soft touch coating on the outside.Lenovo’s new line of convertibles fall throughout the range of prices that have been seen for the other Windows 8 devices that are on their way. As each manufacturer lines up their new devices, the desire to know what Microsoft has up their sleeve grows. If the Microsoft Surface is priced in line with the devices that Lenovo and others are releasing, than these device will be very competitive. read more
On Saturday 24 November, the people of Victoria will head to the polls to decide who will govern the state for the next four years. The two major parties are aware that the contest will be tight and recent polls do not suggest otherwise.While the Andrews Labor government is trumpeting its achievements on the infrastructure front, Matthew Guy has made it clear that he will campaign on a ‘law and order’ ticket, in the belief that Victoria has a safety and policing issue.While Labor leads in the polls, the margin is so small – 51 to 49 per cent of the two-party preferred vote – that it can easily be reversed and elevate Matthew Guy to the top job.Still, the turmoil that engulfed the federal Liberals this week may have an effect on the state party’s prospects to win the election.Victorian Liberal MPs had privately said they feared a Dutton prime ministership could have cost the Coalition votes in the November state election, given that he is “toxic” in Victoria.However with Scott Morrison winning yesterday’s Liberal leadership spill, and now Australia’s new Prime Minister, the state Liberals are sure to gasp a sigh of relief, hoping they will have enough time to win back voters’ trust.Neos Kosmos caught up with the head of the Opposition in Victoria, days before the “political blood” was spilt in Canberra to discuss why Greek Australians should give him their vote. He announced some policies that will surely be welcomed from some of our community members without, of course, forgetting to get into the signature policies that will be the bedrock of his bid to win power: toughening parole laws, establishing a mandatory sentencing regime for some offences, and other law and order issues.TAXI LICENSEES AND FUNDING FOR SOCIAL SERVICES FOR THE COMMUNITYEugenia Pavlopoulou: About a year ago, and while a number of taxi license holders were protesting – and still do – about the compensation they received from the current government, you told Neos Kosmos that a fair amount for compensation for the first licence should be around the $250,000 mark. Is this prospect real under a Coalition state government?Matthew Guy: Jeff Kennett will be taxi services commissioner or the equivalent in that position. The reasons we put Jeff in there is that he has been working closely with the taxi families and the industry and I am very, very confident that he will be able to deliver a regime that would provide a fairer compensation that we believe is right. I think a lot of families have been hurt and deceived. Before we go to the election, we will have a clear policy that people will know exactly what they are going to get from us. I believe, I think, and I commit that the compensation to the taxi licensees will be fairer.EP: The Andrews government committed $420,000 over four years. Funding that will provide the continuation of their settlement services program. Will you endorse this funding arrangement?MG: Yes, we will and we will go further than that. We will provide $150,000 for a new shuttle bus for Pronia. They indicated that a minibus would assist them transporting the Greek elderly and this funding will give them a 25 seat bus.“Victoria has an issue with crime and we need to tackle it by mandatory sentencing, by bail reform and parole reform. It does not matter which community is involved in that crime. It does not matter if it is the Greek community, or the Italian community, or the African community. We have to have a justice system that deals with it.”RACE, CRIME, DRUGSEP: As an ethnic community, we are not very happy to see another ethnic community – and I mean the African one – being branded as a community infested with crime. I can point out to you a couple of very violent crimes that were committed recently by Greek Australians, but no politician came out to say that Greek Australians are criminals. Why did you choose to victimise a community by using the term ‘African gangs’?MG: No one in the Liberal party is using the African community. That is rubbish. That has been said by the Labor party, that we are using that. We never said it’s only the African community. What we have said is Victoria has a problem with crime and the Crime Statistics Agency shows that violent crime is at record levels.EP: When Mr Dutton came out and talked about African gangs or when Mr Turnbull did exactly the same, you were next to him. You did not correct them. MG: You should raise that with them. What Bill Shorten says is not Daniel Andrews fault. You should raise that with them, not me.EP: Your take on crime is that it is rising. That is not manifested through the figures of the Crime Statistics Agency Victoria, which show that crime decreased last year. Why do you maintain that crime has increased?MG: The police is saying the whole crime is going down, and they include stealing a bubble gum in that; the real figure is that violent crime has gone up by 20.7 per cent in the last three year period. It has never been as high as it is today. I know Victoria has an issue with crime. I have never branded the African community. I have said that Victoria has an issue with crime and we need to tackle it by mandatory sentencing, by bail reform and parole reform. It does not matter which community is involved in that crime. It does not matter if it is the Greek community, or the Italian community, or the African community. We have to have a justice system that deals with it, but we also said that if you choose to ignore it, it will not go away as an issue. If you make excuses and you say it is a proportion of the population and this and that, you will never solve the problem. Sydney confronted the issue in the 1990s. Sydney now has less per capita crime than Victoria.EP: Let’s agree that we disagree. We know that the use of the drug ice is a major contributor to violent crime. Parole reform or mandatory sentences do not help drug addicted offenders. Does the Coalition government have a policy to tackle this issue? MG: Yes, we do. We will fund Australia’s first juvenile mandatory rehab centre with $30 million. We are going to take people off drugs. We will say to a magistrate who has an under 18 in front of them, who committed a crime because of drugs, to send them to this facility. We will get this offender off drugs. Ice is a massive problem, particularly in country Victoria. It will be a rehab centre, not a prison. Getting young people off drugs means we will not see them in the criminal justice system again and again.EP: On the issue of crime, there was a report in one of the dailies recently that a Coalition government will be looking into abolishing the seal of confession for child abuse cases. Are you willing to act on this matter?MG: Peter Walsh, who is our senior catholic MP is looking into this. I will take his advice on notice and the advice of other catholic MPs, because I am not a Catholic. So the confession to me is something I am not accustomed with. Having said that, Victoria has a mandatory reporting scheme for child sex offences. Having a national approach to that would be much more helpful, but if we are not going to get a national approach we need to do something about it, and I think that Peter is right in saying we can’t wait forever for a national approach. So we need to do something on child sex offences.“We will keep the stamp duty concessions or abolishment of it, but this policy is no be-all, end-all. We need supply. That’s why we said we will bring supply in the market by completing all the structure plans.”A VISION FOR THE FUTURE GENERATIONEP: Moving onto economic issues, house affordability is one of great importance for the wider community, including the Greek Australian. How are you going to make it easier for first home buyers to realise their dream?MG: We will keep the stamp duty concessions or abolishment of it, but this policy is no be-all, end-all. We need supply. That’s why we said we will bring supply in the market by completing all the structure plans. The problem we have at the moment is that this government has constricted supply, so on the one hand it says we have to help get house prices under control, while on the other hand it says we are going to approve fewer areas of development than ever before.We have a defined urban growth boundary and no one says to approve outside that boundary, but all the plans within that boundary have not been completed. That means house numbers for sale are being constricted, so as a consequence, house land prices in the outer suburbs have risen by 69 percent in two years. When house prices rise, this government said “we will give you cash back.” Well, the best way you can help with house prices is to flush the market with supply.EP: Given the drop in house prices recently, don’t you think that increased supply might lead to a crash of the Melbourne property market?MG: In the outer growth areas, prices are going up. It is the middle ring suburbs, the $1mil to $3mil, that prices are stagnating or starting to fall. This is where you get the figures saying that prices are starting to fall and yes, prices are stabilising in this market and that is why I said that the price hike is obvious in the majority of the outer market.EP: What is your vision for the state? How will a Coalition government see its future?MG: I think Victoria needs a short, medium and long term agenda for government. My short-term agenda is to fix the crime problem. In the first hundred days, we will make the changes needed. I believe that the changes we will implement will need to take those repeat offenders off the streets and then, if they have drug issues, we need to rehabilitate them.Our medium-term agenda is about affordability, which means we will offer more supply to the housing market, more supply of gas to drive down the power prices.And the long-term plan is to decentralise Victoria. You know, when Greeks came to Victoria decades ago, they went to the regional areas. When my mum came from Ukraine, she went to the country area. They did so because there were jobs. We are growing Victoria in an unsustainable way. We want to focus on decentralising our economy, whether it is through tax incentives, transport growth, hospitals. We need to provide incentives for people to go to country Victoria. It is a real challenge and we need to have a government that thinks for the next generation, not just the next election.

JAMAICA MORTGAGE BANK LEAD FINANCIER OF UWI STUDENT HOUSING Recommended for you KIDNEY SPECIALIST RETURNS HOME, WORKING AT HOSPITALS Student invites Obama to Turks and Caicos; he says ‘Absolutely’ Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:Carolyn Hayle, Senior Programme Officer, university of west indies Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 5 Nov 2014 – Tourism follows the ebbs and flows or ups and downs or booms and busts of the financial world… and the six to seven year cycles and the data to dictate trends in those cycles must be closely studied. Dr. Carolyn Hayle is a programme director at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus and was the keynote speaker at the opening of the National Tourism Symposium. Dr. Hayle brought a riveting rally for government to pay attention to the details and try to figure out how to keep more money in the country. Dr. Hayle is a near 20 year educator and so another strong thrust in her presentation was on training as she encouraged the private sector to angle for the residual energy of their staff, so that they easily go that extra mile. Also presenting at the two day National Tourism Symposium held at Beaches Resort Villages and Spa was the Executive Director of CDEMA; he said Disaster preparedness has everything to do with tourism. Ronald Jackson reminded of the plethora of risks and said governments must formulate plans to mitigate any fall out. read more

Bratya Basu, the theatre maestro of Bengal, has mesmerised his audience again with his directional deftness, by picking on the Bengali classic film of the sixties, Meghe Dhaka Tara, directed by the legendary Ritwick Ghatak for his play. Basu has done what nobody has dared to dream.On January 2, Kolkata witnessed a rendezvous between two master directors of two different art forms at the newly renovated University Institute Hall. The play projects the pain, anguish, solitude, exploitation, and the unfulfilled desires and expectations of a family in the poverty-stricken refugee camp dealing with the aftermath of the Partition of Bengal. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’When asked why he selected this film for the play, Bratya said, “Refugee issues have always besieged Bengal. While Bengali cinema to some extent has explored this subject, Bengali theatre hasn’t done as much. This play does offer a piece of the life of the refugees that Bengal witnessed once upon a time. As long as borders are there, we will have the refugee crisis: latest being Syria. True, the way refugee crisis came to be highlighted in the works of Manto or other authors in Punjab, was not done in Bengal.” Meghe Dhaka Tara (A Cloud-capped Star) is a film written and directed by Ritwick Ghatak in 1960 based on the social novel by Shaktipada Rajguru. It was a part of the trilogy of three films directed by the same director on the corollary of the partition of Bengal. The other two films were Komal Gandhar (1961) and Subarnarekha (1962). Bengal was then facing unprecedented human misery when national refugee care agencies were at a nascent stage. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixGhatak wanted to inform the people about the plight of the refugees trying to reconstruct their lives amidst the rise of colonies in divided Bengal. The film revolves around Neeta, a beautiful young sibling of a poor school teacher Madhab, known as ‘Madhab-master’. After partition, the family has shifted from East Pakistan to the suburbs of Calcutta as refugees. Neeta is the provider to the family who aspires to help everybody in the family, including her fiancée, Sanat. She is exploited by all. Her mother, Ramala does not even think twice before marrying off her younger daughter, Geeta to Neeta’s fiancée to prevent the sole earning member in her family from leaving them. Sanat, unable to keep pace with her sacrificing attitude and constant anxiety amidst the clutch of poverty, takes no time in deciding to marry her sister. Neeta’s elder brother, though empathetic towards his sister, does not hesitate in taking her help to make a career in singing. Her younger brother, a budding soccer player leaves home to make his career too. Finally Neeta loses her job and gets infected with tuberculosis. She is quarantined and has no option but to stay away from her family. The dreams, hopes and aspirations of the protagonist crash amidst the growing demand of family members and her deep concern to save her family even at the cost of sacrificing her own interests. The original film was very melancholic, somber and melodramatic in tone. The lingering, surrealistic music used by Ritwick Ghatak left a feeling of numbness among the viewers. The magnitude of suffering rendered the audience speechless. Bratya Basu has used his flair and competence to create these nuances in the play and has paid a fitting tribute to the marvel of Bengali films. Basu has narrowed down the difference between a film and a theatre, on stage further. He has used the projection of original film clippings and the newly filmed footages in the background with impeccable perfection. Debarati Gupta has used the camera shots in a way to bring out the effect of close-ups seen in Ghatak’s film. The artistic finesse of Basu is seen in the subtlety with which the characters in the play express the varying orders of human emotions on stage. The stage presentation is not so overcast like the original film but it is an epitome of financial crisis. The tin sidewall of the house with a bed made of local wood and a photoframe dangling from the wall, an ordinary table with a chair and a meat-safe do not exactly depict the condition of a refugee camp. The books of Yeats, Elliot on the table carries the intellectualism of the middle class. But the loud colours of plastic flowers and a dream elevation in the backdrop seem to stand out exclusively in terms of representing the glaring difference between the world of fantasy and heart breaking reality. The characters move up the elevation whenever they think about an unfulfilled dream, or search for signs of happiness. The rise pulls them above the drudgery of their daily poverty stricken depressing life into a world of desires. Neeta’s flight of imagination, in the worst of moments, helps her fight the hopelessness and misery of her life. The bridge is her belief in the castle of dreams that she builds in the sky. The play represents these moments as the eternal hope in the bleak world of human beings. The conflicts of idealism, strengths and weaknesses of a post-colonial middle class family were clearly noticeable. Prithwis Rana surely deserves an accolade in building the stage. Veteran actor Subhasish Mukherjee as Madhab master has re-established his talent as an actor on stage. His flawless movements on stage and skills of getting absorbed into the character are a lesson for the younger stage actors and a treat to watch. Credit goes to the director again for utilising his talent on stage so efficiently. Poulomi Basu, in the role of Neeta has shown maturity in acting. She steals the heart of the audience with her heart-rending expressions ranging from sweet satisfaction of fulfilling family demands to shocking disbeliefs of being hurt by her near and dear ones. She has undoubtedly created a niche in the role of the protagonist, hailed in the film as having won million hearts with the epoch making dialogue, Dada, ami banchte chai (Brother, I want to live). Partha Bhowmick as Shankar, Kathakali Deb as Geeta and veteran actor Suranjana Dasgupta as Ramala have done a credible job to give their roles a distinctiveness to cherish. The background music and sounds used in the play is different from the original film. When asked about it, Bratya said, “Let’s take the use of the sound of a running train in the background, the sound of falling raindrops, the sound of water trickling down. I feel these help in bringing out a signature sound that one identifies with colony life.” Dishary Chakraborty used all these sounds with the classical line ups from Ustad Bahadur Khan. The script writer Ujjwal Chatterjee has written a delicately balanced script. Meghe Dhaka Tara is the first production of Naihati Bratyajon. Partha Bhowmick, MLA from Naihati and the director of the theatre group says, “We have decided, under the guidance of Bratya Basu, to stage the Bengali Classical films which carry social statements. Meghe Dhaka Tara is our first production in that direction.” They have decided to stage the play every Saturday at the University Institute Hall, in the educational hub of Kolkata.The next play, Adya Shesh Rajani, directed by Basu awaits the premier show on February 21 at Mohit Maitra Mancha, Kolkata. read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) GLENDALE, Ariz. — Mental errors. Breakdowns. Mistakes. Screw-ups.Whatever you call them, the Arizona Cardinals made plenty of them Sunday in a 23-21 loss to the Oakland Raiders.The Cardinals led 21-20 with five minutes to play before a series of missed opportunities and mistakes burned them, allowing Oakland to rally for a last-second field goal and the win that even the teams’ records at 2-8.Here are five looming miscues, four of which came in the final minutes, that bit Arizona at State Farm Stadium: The play beat cornerback Bene Benwikere, and five plays later, kicker Daniel Carlson drilled a 35-yard field goal for the win as time expired.Explanation: Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks: “Lack of concentration within the play. Had a big play down the sideline, we have to learn how to finish … And just the mere fact of a lack of concentration right there and relaxing within the play on that long pass down the sideline. Unacceptable.“There’s quarter’s (coverage) there. Outside leverage position. And against, you just can’t relax. You have to learn how to finish.”Raiders quarterback Derek Carr: “(Ateman) made a heck of a catch, keeping his feet in.“He didn’t get the two-minute drill — we didn’t get to run that live this week, he didn’t get his red zone reps live, all these things that would mess with a rookie’s head didn’t affect him.” – / 60 “If you’re just going to lie on him and be disrespectful, it’s just not going to fly especially with Jermaine on your team. That’s Mr. Fitzgerald. Don’t do that.”Steve Wilks: “All guys need to be smarter than that. Those guys were doing it all game. Keep talking to the guys about being smart, to just walk way.”Seal-Jones’ hold brings it backContext: Following Gresham’s penalty, Arizona found itself in 3rd-and-23 at its own 43-yard line with 2:34 to play.What happened: David Johnson ripped off a 57-yard touchdown run up the middle, but a block by tight end Ricky Seal-Jones at the second level that didn’t seem needed was called for a hold, and a potential 28-20 Cardinals lead was wiped off the board.Explanation: David Johnson: “I was surprised. I didn’t see a flag. I thought that I had the touchdown. Obviously, that is not a good thing. Just have to find ways to finish.”Ateman sets up the game-winnerContext: The Raiders were in 2nd-and-10 at their own 31 with 1:07 to play and trailing 21-20.What happened: Oakland quarterback Derek Carr tossed a 32-yard pass down the left sideline, hitting rookie Marcell Ateman in stride to set up his Raiders at the Arizona 37-yard line. Top Stories 5 Comments Share Dropping an opportunistic pickContext: With 2:56 left in the game, Oakland was in 3rd-and-10 backed up at its own 2-yard line.What happened: A pass by Raiders quarterback Derek Carr hit Cardinals linebacker Josh Bynes square in the hands, but he dropped it, leading to a punt rather than a chance for the Cardinals to intercept the ball and at least get a chip-shot field goal for a 24-20 lead.Explanation: Steve Wilks: “Had our hands on the ball, Josh Bynes, we got come up with that play.”Gresham’s penaltyContext: The Cardinals were at the Oakland 46-yard line with a 2nd-and-12 situation. Only 2:34 remained in the game.What happened: Arizona tight end Jermaine Gresham was called for unnecessary roughness, a 15-yard penalty. That put the Cardinals in 3rd-and-23, which they wouldn’t pick up due to yet another penalty on the ensuing play.Explanation: Jermaine Gresham: “It was just a dumb play by me. I turned around and saw my guy (Larry Fitzgerald) on the ground. I cost us the game.“I was just trying to defend him. It was stupid.”Josh Rosen: “I don’t want to say anything sort of in ignorance of the actual situation because I only saw so little of it. From my understanding a dude was lying on top of Larry and he’s one of the best football players to ever grace this field and the NFL is lucky to have him. Gareon Conley with a tremendous interception to set up a touchdown pass pic.twitter.com/0t4hATy2QW— Ian Wharton (@NFLFilmStudy) November 18, 2018Context: For the second play from scrimmage in the game, the Cardinals had the ball on their own 34-yard line on 2nd-and-1 holding a 21-20 lead.What happened: Quarterback Josh Rosen looked left with receiver Christian Kirk working over the top of a more shallow out route by Larry Fitzgerald. Rosen lofted the ball to Fitzgerald, who didn’t track the ball over his other shoulder.Related LinksRapid Reactions: Cardinals lose in disappointing fashion to OaklandBattle for the bottom: Loss to Raiders burns deep for CardinalsCardinals shine early, fall to Raiders on last-second field goalJosh Rosen explains a naughty rule to follow when making readsLosing to Oakland is rough, but might be best thing for CardinalsRaiders defensive back Gareon Conley, who was following Kirk, broke off the Cardinals receiver and made the pick, setting up a quick touchdown drive for the Raiders, who scored less than three minutes into the game.Explanation:Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen: “I mean, I think the guy on the very first play of the game just made a very good play. It was two-on-two, we had a guy clearing out … Larry’s kind of running a deeper out, a sail route. When Larry’s kind of in the right position, sometimes you’ve just got to give him a chance to get the ball. I didn’t see through to the corner and he just fell off (Kirk) and made a good play.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Rosen throws an early pick The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo read more
