Reminding the world that the sooner action is taken to tackle climate change, the greater the benefits for all, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon yesterday said that for the nearly nine years, he has been at the head of the Organization, he has travelled the world to the front-lines of climate change, and spoken repeatedly with world leaders, business people and citizens about the need for an urgent global response.“Why do I care so much about this issue?” Mr. Ban asked in an opinion piece published in some 70 countries’ media outlets ahead of the UN climate change conference, known as COP21.“First, like any grandfather, I want my grandchildren to enjoy the beauty and bounty of a healthy planet. And like any human being, it grieves me to see that floods, droughts and fires are getting worse, that island nations will disappear and uncounted species will become extinct,” he explained.The UN chief recalled that Pope Francis and other faith leaders have reminded the global community that “we have a moral responsibility to act in solidarity with the poor and most vulnerable who have done least to cause climate change and will suffer first and worst from its effects.”Second, as the head of the United Nations, Mr. Ban said he has prioritized climate change because no country can meet this challenge alone. “Climate change carries no passport; emissions released anywhere contribute to the problem everywhere. It is a threat to lives and livelihoods everywhere. Economic stability and the security of nations are under threat. Only through the United Nations can we respond collectively to this quintessentially global issue,” he insisted.While admitting that the negotiation process has been slow and cumbersome, the Secretary-General underlined that the world is seeing results. In response to the UN’s call, more than 166 countries, which collectively account for more than 90 per cent of emissions, have now submitted national climate plans with targets.If successfully implemented, these national plans could bend the emissions curve down to a projected global temperature rise of approximately 3 degrees Celsius by the end of the century.“This is significant progress. But it is still not enough,” warned Mr. Ban. “The challenge now is to move much further and faster to reduce global emissions so we can keep global temperature rise to below 2 degrees Celsius. At the same time, we must support countries to adapt to the inevitable consequences that are already upon us.”He said acting soon can lead to greater benefits for all: increased stability and security; stronger, more sustainable economic growth; enhanced resilience to shocks; cleaner air and water; improved health.“We will not get there overnight,” the UN chief stated. “The climate change conference in Paris is not the end point. It must mark the floor, not the ceiling of our ambition. It must be the turning point towards a low-emission, climate-resilient future.”Meanwhile, around the world, momentum is building, he said, pointing out that cities, businesses and investors, faith leaders and citizens are acting to reduce emissions and build resilience.“The responsibility now rests with Governments to conclude a meaningful, binding agreement in Paris that provides clear rules of the road for strengthening global ambition. For this, negotiators need clear guidance from the top,” he stressed, noting that the leaders of G20 nations, who met earlier this month in Antalya, Turkey, showed strong commitment to climate action.More than 120 have confirmed their participation in Paris, despite heightened security concerns in the wake of the terrorist attacks.“I see four essential elements for Paris to be a success: durability, flexibility, solidarity and credibility,” the Secretary-General continued, giving an explanation for each point, before reiterating that the UN stands fully ready to support countries in implementing such an agreement. An agreement, which he said will also accelerate progress towards all of the Sustainable Development Goals.“That is why I care so deeply about climate change,” he concluded. “My message to world leaders is clear: success in Paris depends on you. Now is the time for common sense, compromise and consensus. It is time to look beyond national horizons and to put the common interest first. The people of the world – and generations to come – count on you to have the vision and courage to seize this historic moment.”
CALGARY (660 NEWS) – Calgary city councillors are putting forward duelling motions on how to provide tax relief for beleaguered businesses.Both appear destined to fail.Many businesses face double-digit increases this year as council struggles with how to manage a shrinking corporate tax base.Following strong backlash from the business community, several councillors put together a hastily drawn up plan last week that would offer $190 million to offset this year’s hike.Among other things, Councillor Ward Sutherland said it requires a bailout from the provincial government to the tune of $60 million.#yyc business community, #yyccc is working hard to provide tax relief for local businesses with an immediate solution. To read our course of action, see attachments. pic.twitter.com/lTTJFxnh6v— Ward Sutherland (@Ward4Ward1) May 30, 2019“The core issue is our assessment system,” Sutherland said. “We need help from the provincial government.”Both Premier Jason Kenney and Municipal Affairs Minister Kaycee Madu have shot down the idea.Kenney says it’s not the provincial government’s responsibility to subsidize municipal governments, while Madu says the city needs to live within its means.Councillor Jeromy Farkas is offering up his own solution but appears to have little support from his council colleagues.“We need to act now to solve the crushing tax burden that’s facing Calgarians,” Farkas said. “And the only way we can do that is by reducing spending.”I am eager to work together with everyone and anyone. This issue is bigger than any person and requires all hands on deck to solve. Disappointing that #yyccc would engage in personal attacks and mislead the public, when the focus must be the Calgarians we are here to serve. https://t.co/nkbXIOdWy4— Jeromy Farkas (@JeromyYYC) June 3, 2019Farkas’ plan includes pulling about $60 million from a corporate welfare fund and cutting the wages of some city employees.“I did look at his numbers and they’re very trivial,” Sutherland said. “It’s only a few thousand dollars here and there.”Farkas claims his plan would not result in any service cuts.RELATED: Tax crisis in Calgary But Sutherland doesn’t think civic employees would accept a wage cut.Whatever the plan is, council likely won’t be meeting to debate the issue until mid-June.WATCH: Sticker shock for Inglewood business
The move into the area by Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) which began over the weekend left at least 17 Palestinians dead, including an 11-year-old child, while more than 65 others have been reported injured, several critically. In addition, 25 homes have been demolished and some three dozen acres of land levelled. In a statement issued in Jerusalem, Terje Roed-Larsen, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, called on Israel to act under the framework of international law, most critically in the protection of civilians, property and infrastructure. He also reiterated his firm belief “that there exists no military solution to the conflict and that the only way forward is the implementation of the Road Map [peace plan] and an immediate return to of the parties to the negotiating table.”

Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) is reviewing the no-ball bowled by Kieron Pollard at the end of Sunday’s match between Barbados Tridents and the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots at Kensington Oval in Barbados.Kieron PollardHero CPL, in a release this afternoon, said it is very concerned by suggestions that the action of a player could be considered to have brought the game or the league into disrepute.Pollard, the Tridents captain, bowled a big no-ball when opposition batsman Evin Lewis was on 97 off 32 balls, with St Kitts and Nevis Patriots needing one run to beat Barbados Tridents in the Twenty20 competition.The no-ball gave 25-year-old Lewis’ side the win but saw him miss out on the chance of a ton after he and captain Chris Gayle reached 129-0.The move has been criticised by cricket fans who suggest that it was deliberate.CPL said: “Cricket owes so much of its unique appeal to the spirit in which the game is played and as a cricket tournament, the Hero CPL understands the importance of fair play and good sportsmanship”.The Patriots beat Barbados Tridents by 10 wickets in the final preliminary match of the Caribbean Premier League.

In 2016, the Wieliczka salt mine – one of Poland’s biggest attractions – was visited by a record 1.5 million tourists. Chapels carved in salt, sculptures, underground saline lakes and numerous traces of the exploitation of salt deposits make this mine a must-see attraction. Visitors can enjoy a huge variety of things to do, including, shopping, eating a delicious meal, concerts, visiting a health spa and even meeting the miners.Entered onto the UNESCO List of Global Cultural and Natural Heritage in 1978, Wieliczka salt mine remains one of the oldest companies in Europe, with its origin dating back to the Middle Ages. Following the history of the salt from Wieliczka brings us even farther back in time to around 6,000 years ago, when the pre-historic people inhabiting the region were salt makers, who extracted salt from brine water springs.In the past, salt was like gold, and Wieliczka was truly the crown jewel of Polish kings. The salt from Wieliczka was well known and appreciated far and wide, and over the centuries, the underground corridors have been toured by many famous people, including Copernicus, Chopin and Mendeleev. Even today it is possible to meet royalty and Hollywood stars there.With over 2,300 chambers, 250 km of corridors and nine levels the mine is a labyrinth with various traces and marks dating back centuries. Natural monuments, such as the Crystal Grottoes created in the Miocene salt deposit, make this a truly breathtaking experience.A setting 64-135 m underground is one of the most valuable and beautiful areas of the mine. Every year, hundreds of unique events are held there – including balloon flights and bungee jumping. The Mine also holds concerts, conferences, weddings and balls. The Wieliczka Salt Mine Health Resort is a must try for those on a health kick, with its clean fresh air, filled with salt aerosol bringing relief to many suffering with respiratory system diseases.Despite the fact that salt is no longer mined there, the site still employs many miners, who are tasked with securing the underground cultural and natural heritage. They also carry on the centuries-long mining traditions, such as carving and sculpting in salt. www.wieliczka-saltmine.comThe picture shows the biggest underground chapel in the world, chisseled in rock salt, Wieliczka salt mine, photo by Ryszard Tatomir
Review: ‘Daemon X Machina’ Has Big Robots, Small Fun on Nintendo SwitchThis Robot Is Equal Parts Lawnmower and Snow Blower A Chinese toy maker has broken the Guinness World Record for “most robots dancing simultaneously.”Yes—While you toil away at your desk for eight hours a day, five days a week, there are people out there programming machines to boogie woogie all night long.A whopping 1,069 synchronized bots lined up in Guangzhou, Guangdong earlier this month to perform a perfectly choreographed dance routine.(via Guinness World Records)“Well, almost perfect—a few of the robots fell down during the dynamic show, and these had to be deducted from the final record total,” according to the Guinness World Records site.The dance-off—more of a public relations move—earned maker WL Intelligent Technology Co. not only accolades, but public attention: As of press time, the Guinness World Records YouTube video has garnered hundreds of thousands of views.Dubbed “Dobi,” the 1.5-foot self-stabilizing android boasts 17 joints, allowing it to walk like a human, perform martial arts, do yoga, and, of course, bust a move. It can also interact with people, chatting and telling stories.Watch 1,069 Dobi robots cut a rug in the official video above.According to Guinness, the bots danced to 60 seconds of a song “called ‘Gentlemen,’” presumably of Psy fame. (I was holding out for “Mr. Roboto,” anything by Daft Punk, or this gem.)WL Tech beat two previous records, both claimed in 2016 by Chinese companies.(via Guinness World Records)In April, UBTECH Robotics Corp. made history when 540 “Alpha 1S” machines danced behind singer Sun Nan during the CCTV Sprint Festival Gala in Shenzhen.Four months later, Ever Win Company & Ltd. nearly doubled that achievement with 1,007 robots dancing in unison for a full minute. A few of the shimmying cyborgs, named QRC-2, were disqualified because they didn’t dance, or fell over.Backup dancers aren’t the only ones who should be quaking in their lace-up boots, though. Softbank’s Pepper robot—already adept at navigating busy malls—is learning to deliver Buddhist funeral rites.Editor’s Note: This story was updated on Aug. 30 with comment from Guinness World Records.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Members of the Elfin Forest Harmony Grove Town Council said they were afraid they could be trapped on the two lane County Club Drive that runs through the Harmony Grove area.The road is considered the only safe escape route in a wildfire, but residents and town council members said there would be too many people on the road if two proposed developments are built.The developments would add 800 new homes, nearly doubling the number of people who would be trying to flee. Community members told reporters on Tuesday that the fire in the Northern California town of Paradise is a grim example of what might happen if there is only one road to leave.Town Council member Scott Sutherland estimated the number of cars that would be using the road and concluded, “You’re looking at 3 or 4,000 cars trying to cram down a road that carries 500 cars, that adds up to 6 to 8 hours of drive time to get out.”If the new developments are built, community members said the county should make improvements to infrastructure, which could include building another road for secondary access or adding more lanes to the main road. The County Board of Supervisors and other county officials have recommended that evacuations during wildfires could occur in phases, so that one group would be allowed to leave, followed by another. Sutherland said the idea of such “staged evacuations” would not work.“People have free will and they can and will leave. Can you imagine a fire barrelling down that valley at you? Would you sit here? I sure wouldn’t. That’s why we’re terrified out here and something needs to be done about it,” Sutherland said.The County approved both development projects in July, but the Elfin Forest Harmony Grove Town Council filed a lawsuit the following month, to try to stop the projects from going forward. An attorney for the County said he could not comment on any pending ligitation. Categories: Local San Diego News, Traffic & Accidents, Wildfires FacebookTwitter November 20, 2018
Manila diplomat rejects China’s call to ban online gambling Load More The Philippines Department of Justice (DOJ) has wiped its hands of the investigation into the former board members of Nayong Pilipino Foundation (NPF) over its land lease deal with integrated resort developer Landing International Development Ltd, leaving the matter with the Office of the Government Corporate Counsel (OGCC) instead.President Rodrigo Duterte last week fired the entire NPF board over what he described as a “grossly disadvantageous” deal with Landing for its proposed US$1.5 billion casino and resort in Manila’s Entertainment City. It had previously been suggested that the deal could cost the government Php517 million per year.But DOJ Secretary Menardo Guevarra has told The Philippine Star that the department would not investigate the actions of the former NPF board members even if it is proved that the Landing deal did indeed disadvantage the government, nor would the OGCC’s findings have any impact on the provisional gaming license recently granted to Landing by PAGCOR.“A complaint for graft has been filed before the ombudsman against former board members of the NPF, so that will not be a focus anymore of the DOJ review,” Guevarra said.The DOJ has joint jurisdiction alongside the OGCC over potential graft charges to be laid against the NPF board members, however Guevarra insisted that the OGCC investigation was focused purely on whether or not the land lease deal would impact the government’s bottom line and would have no direct impact on the recent issuance of a provisional gaming license by PAGCOR.“Any license granted by PAGCOR could only be provisional in character as the grant of a regular license depends on the existence of a valid contract of lease between the NPF and the prospective developer or operator,” Guevarra said.The gaming regulator has, however, noted that it would cancel Landing’s provisional gaming license if the land lease deal was found to be invalid.

Bottles of Coca-Cola are seen in a Casino supermarket in Mouans Sartoux, France, October 27, 2016.Reuters filePepsico and Coca Cola had reasons to cheer after a court on Thursday lifted a fourth-month ban on supply of water to their units in Tamil Nadu, a Rs 1,400-crore market for the two American beverages companies. The reprieve came a day after retailers of the two firms boycotted their soft drinks in favour of home-grown ones, sparking support and criticism alike.Justices A Selvam and P Kalaiyarasan of the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court on Thursday not only lifted the ban imposed by the Tirunelveli district collector in November 2016, but also dismissed a clutch of public interest litigations (PILs) seeking to restrain the State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu (SIPCOT) from supplying water to the cola units.The petitioners were chided for being selective in seeking the ban. “Why are you not attacking other industries? Why have you adopted a pick and choose method?” Justice Selvam had asked while reserving judgment in the case on February 15, according to The Hindu.The two companies are facing a boycott from retailers in Tamil Nadu who have decided to shun their aerated drinks, citing health reasons and excessive use of water.The two co-packers of Pepsico India and Coca Cola — Prathishta Business Solutions and South India Bottling Company — in their counter-affidavits in the case, had denied getting water at a throwaway price by the SIPCOT at its industrial cluster in Tirunelveli.The events coincide with the week-long visit of PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi to India from Tuesday.The Indian Beverage Association (IBA), a body that represents the non-alcoholic beverage industry, has voiced concern at the boycott call given by Tamil Nadu traders. “This call is against the proven fundamentals of robust economic growth, and against the clarion call of Making in India. The boycott call also violates the rights of the consumer to exercise choice,” it said.
iOS 13 Forces You to Make Eye Contact While FaceTimingApple Fixes FaceTime Flaw, Compensates Teen Who Found It Apple’s Group FaceTime function has been temporarily disabled, following the exposure of a bug that lets users hear audio of the callee before they answer.First reported by 9to5Mac on Monday, the glitch makes it easy to eavesdrop on contacts.Simply start a FaceTime video chat, swipe up from the bottom to choose “Add Person,” type in your own phone number, then listen.You can overhear anything the person’s mobile microphone picks up.

The issue remains “ongoing”; there is no word on when it will be restored.Despite the current shutdown, FaceTime’s flaw may still be live for some users; as of 11:30 p.m. EST Monday, 9to5Mac was still able to reproduce the exploit.Cupertino did not immediately respond to Geek’s request for comment.A number of media outlets are urging folks to terminate FaceTime—for now.“Theoretically, because the security flaw is Group FaceTime-based, taking the feature offline should eventually resolve it,” according to 9to5’s Chance Miller. “Though it’s not an ideal solution in the long-term.”In a statement to BuzzFeed News, an Apple spokesperson said the company is “aware of this issue and we have identified a fix that will be released in a software update later this week.”The news spread across social media like wildfire, inciting anger, fear, and confusion among iOS and MacOS Mojave users.

The lifting of the restrictions imposed by Turkey on Cypriot-flagged ships would result in a win-win situation, Chairman of the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) Esben Poulsson said on Tuesday.Poulsson is on the island to attend the annual meeting of the Cyprus Shipping Chamber (CSC) which will mark its 30th anniversary on Thursday.In an interview with the Cyprus News Agency, he said the CSC was a “model member” of the ICS and an example of what an effective national shipowners’ association should be like.CSC officials have during the years acted as Vice-Chairmen of the ICS as well as Chairmen of ICS Committees actively participating in policy making, consulting thoroughly on many complex topics with their member shipping companies in Cyprus, he said.Poulsson said he agreed to attend and address the CSC’s Annual General Meeting to show the ICS’s appreciation for the valuable contribution of its Cypriot member through the years, “recognising as such, its important role towards shaping future policies for international shipping.”Asked on the ICS’ view on the restriction imposed by Turkey on Cyprus shipping, Poulsson said although the ICS is a non-political trade association, “when requested by our members and in the interests of maintaining free trade principles we have communicated with the United Nations among others about the need for a resolution to this long standing trade restriction, which I know is of great concern to CSC and its members but it also affects international shipping as well.”The ICS strongly believes in a ‘level playing field’ for international shipping, he said, and open access for international trade as being the means to ensure that world trade can be moved most cost effectively, to the benefit of the people of all countries. He said the ICS lobbies strongly against any practices which represent a constraint on free trade in goods and services. “A lifting of this trade restriction would be to the benefit of Turkey, Cyprus, and to international trade at large.”On global shipping prospects, Poulsson said prospects for rapid future trade growth “do look a little worrying,” as global GDP growth will likely be slower this year and decelerate some more next year too.He also recalled that apart from the danger that the trade war between the US and China will continue to escalate, there are already indications that the rate of growth in China is slowing – with 2018 being the slowest year of growth since 1990, even if growth of 6.5 per cent continues to look impressive.“But if China catches a cold then so does shipping, and a lot will depend on the measures that the Chinese authorities take in response to any downturn so that the risk of a full-blown recession can hopefully be avoided,” he added.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityEarthquake insurance that fits your future plansCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Our View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoRape suspects look set to go through police line-upUndoA grotesque choice of prime minister for Britain?Undoby Taboolaby Taboola
