Rural poverty projects in 16 countries receive major boost from new UN

19 December 2008Efforts to reduce rural poverty in 16 developing countries received a major boost thanks to $258 million in new funding approved by the United Nations agency working to help men and women in impoverished areas increase their incomes and improve their communities. The Executive Board of the UN International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) approved more than $197.55 million in loans and $60.83 million in grants for the projects during its meeting this week in Rome.“The agreement of the Executive Board to this package will enable IFAD to continue to work closely with national governments and partners to help poor rural people in these 16 developing countries build better lives,” said IFAD President Lennart Båge. “The rural poor, who are the most vulnerable to global problems like climate change and financial crisis, are at the centre of IFAD’s work and we are single-minded in our commitment to do more and serve them better. The Board’s support will allow us to do that,” he added.The largest portion of the newly-approved funds, over $100 million, will assist several African nations, including the strife-torn Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) as well as Swaziland and Kenya, to reduce poverty, improve food security and enhance living conditions. Projects in Asia and the Pacific will benefit from some $96 million in funds to, among other things, increase agricultural production and market access, acquiring vital inputs such as seeds and tools, and rehabilitating necessary infrastructure. Several countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, Central and Eastern Europe, as well as Yemen and the West Bank and Gaza, are also set to benefit from this fresh injection of funds.Meanwhile, IFAD reported that its member States have backed a $3 billion, three-year programme for the agency, which, coupled with co-financing from its many partners, could mean as much as $7.5 billion for agriculture, poverty reduction and food security for the world’s most vulnerable rural populations.As part of this package, members agreed on a target of $1.2 billion in new contributions to help poor rural people already suffering from recent spikes in food and fuel prices.“This significant increase from IFAD’s members, especially given these financially tough times, is an extraordinary expression of political resolve to support poor rural people,” said Mr. Båge. Some 75 per cent of the world’s poorest people – some 1 billion women, children and men – live in rural areas and depend on agriculture and related activities for their livelihoods. With the new resources, IFAD will be able to create and support economic opportunities for an estimated 60 million of them. read more

Urban Meyer joins Twitter promotes the Buckeyes

Screenshot of TwitterUrban Meyer’s first tweet sent on Aug. 27.Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer has officially joined the Twitterverse.On Aug. 27 he sent out his first official tweet: “My good friend Bob Stoops talked me into this Twitter stuff – lets see how it goes. 3 more days till game time!”That first tweet from Meyer was accompanied with a picture showing a countdown leading up to the OSU’s season opener against Buffalo. Bob Stoops, the head coach at Oklahoma, was the one who convinced him to join Twitter, according to Meyer. Stoops has been on Twitter since September 2012.In less than an hour, Meyer had more than 10,000 followers, and as of late Thursday, he had more than 38,600. The first person he followed was his Heisman hopeful quarterback and active tweeter, junior Braxton Miller.Meyer never really voiced any opinion about Twitter before actually creating one. According to documents obtained by The Lantern the university is spending $360,500 to monitor student athletes on social media.Meyer’s presence on Twitter, as well as numerous players and coaches, makes it seem that the Buckeyes are a Twitter-friendly team. However, this is not the case for a few other college football programs.Florida State, another perennial national powerhouse, banned players from using Twitter in July 2012 after several Seminole players tweeted objectionable material many people found offensive. FSU coach Jimbo Fisher made the decision to ban the social networking site from his team. He has since also banned Facebook and Instagram.Possible negatives to the Twitter bans are a loss of potential recruits, upset players, disgruntled fans, etc. The positives are a more focused team and a lack of distractions, according to the coaches that have banned social media. Nebraska coach Bo Pelini has expressed his disgust with Twitter.“To me, there’s nothing good that can ever come from Twitter … The only thing that is going to happen through Twitter is bad, in any regards.” Pelini said to the Lincoln Journal Star.The majority of Meyer’s tweets are promoting the Buckeyes and OSU. His Twitter profile picture is of him and his family. read more

Campbell rubbishes Englands World Cup heroics

first_imgFormer England international Sol Campbell has rubbished recent praises coming the way of the England team that participated at this summer’s World Cup in Russia.The former Three Lions defender who represented his country for 11 years has dismissed talk of a revival under Gareth Southgate, saying the country simply got lucky at the World Cup and are still well behind Europe’s elite.“We have to be honest, although they did incredibly well to reach the semi-finals in Russia the draw was also incredibly kind to them,’ said Campbell, according to Daily Mail.“They didn’t really meet a top team until Croatia. Hopefully, moving forward, they will have learned a lot from the Croatia game in terms of not switching off. But when you look at what France or Belgium had to do, would England have survived the same tests?”“For me now, it’s all about a reality check and how they push on. We have the Nations League then the Euros. Sometimes in the Euros you meet harder teams and let’s face it, the likes of Italy and Holland will have a point to prove.”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.Meanwhile, Campbell who is well adored at Arsenal by the club and its fans has tipped the Gunners to take a huge step forward this season under new manager Unai Emery.He said: “Manchester City are streets ahead but Arsenal could well have beaten Chelsea and might even have been 5-2 up at half-time.”“I see really good signs because they are learning from mistakes during games and not waiting till afterwards. Halfway through the season you will see where Arsenal are.”“Sometimes, you’ve got defenders who simply don’t want to defend,” said Campbell. “Football has changed. Hard tackling seems to have gone out of the game.”‘I don’t know why that kind of training isn’t around any more. To find the kind of really good defender like those we had in my day, that’s gold dust.”last_img read more

STATE REP RACE QA Pina Prinzivalli Explains Why Shes Running Describes Her

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington Apple is asking weekly questions to the seven candidates running in contested primaries for the Wilmington/Tewksbury State Representative seat (19th Middlesex).Below, in her own words, are the responses to this week’s questions from candidate Pina Prinzivalli (R-Tewksbury).#1) Why do you want to be our State Representative? (submitted by Mary Kiesinger of Wilmington)I take pride in being the only non politician in this race.  I’m a career professional and I’m a hardworking taxpayer, just like you. I believe Beacon Hill is made up of career politicians and is sorely lacking a taxpayer mentality.  The size of Government has grown, our tax burden has increased and it has become increasingly difficult to live, work and raise a family in Massachusetts.  And that’s why I want to be our State Representative, to be a bold voice that puts the taxpayers first.From the moment I launched my campaign last October, I immediately went to work to lower our tax burden by collecting signatures for a ballot question to reduce the sales tax and establish an annual tax free weekend.  You deserve to keep more of your hard earned money to better take care of yourself, your family and your loved ones.  Not the government’s desire to take care of the specials interests and themselves, as evident by the massive pay raises they voted for in January of 2017.  That’s why I’ve pledged to never vote myself a pay raise and if there’s ever an increase in base salary, I will donate that money to charity.I’m also the only candidate who has signed the Taxpayers Protection Pledge.  I will vote against and oppose all efforts to raise taxes because the government doesn’t have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem.My ten plus years of experience as a customer service rep and manager in local banking has me ready on day one to take care of my constituents.  It’s what I do every day.  I take care of the people who enter my branch and put them on the road to success.  I will do the same as your next State Representative.#2) Do you consider yourself a liberal, conservative or moderate? Please describe your political ideology. (submitted by Danielle Driscoll of Tewksbury)I never considered myself as being “political,” thus I never branded myself with a label growing up or during my professional career.  But the more I’ve learned about what’s going on in our state and our country and the more views I’ve developed, I consider myself to be on the conservative side of the political spectrum.  I believe in our Constitution and will uphold the oath to serve and protect our rights and the rule of law.  I’m pro life.  I’m pro 2nd Amendment.  I oppose Sanctuary cities and Massachusetts becoming a Sanctuary State.(NOTE: Do you have a question for the candidates?

UN monitoring Bangladesh situation

first_imgThe United Nations (UN) has called on ‘all sides’ in Bangladesh politics to maintain calm after sentencing of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) chairperson Khaleda Zia.UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres may come up with further reactions after assessing the Bangladesh situation as the UN body is concerned about any reports of violence.“We’re monitoring what the events are on the ground and we will react accordingly,” the UN chief’s deputy spokesperson Farhan Haq told newsmen in New York headquarters on Thursday.“At this point, we call on all sides to maintain calm,” he added.The spokesperson said this in response to a question from a Bangladeshi journalist whether the UN secretary-general would send any special envoy to Bangladesh to resolve the political crisis, following the verdict.An IANS report says: Bangladesh is the second largest contributor of personnel to UN peacekeeping operations sending 7,246 troops and police.Farhan Haq was asked by a reporter if given reports of the security forces acting against protesters in Bangladesh the UN were vetting its personnel in peacekeeping operations to make sure if they were not involved in human rights abuses at home.In his reply Haq did not specifically mention Bangladesh, but said, “All peacekeepers are vetted to make sure that they haven’t engaged in any practices that involve violation of the human rights and we go through that on a country-by-country basis.””We raise all concerns with any particular member of incoming troops with the troop-contributing country to make sure that no one is deployed who does not meet out standards,” he added.last_img read more

Japan mulls 46bn defence budget to counter N Korea

first_imgJapan`s defence minister Itsunori Onodera delivers a speech at the defence ministry in Tokyo on 11 September 2017. AFPJapan plans a record $46 billion defence budget for the next fiscal year to strengthen its missile defence against the threat posed by North Korea, a report said Saturday.The government is expected to set aside 5.19 trillion yen for defence in the country’s initial budget proposal for the fiscal year starting April 2018, the Nikkei daily said.It will mark the sixth straight year of increases in defence outlays, topping the 5.12 trillion yen budget for the current fiscal year, the business daily said.Much of the increase will go on protecting Japan against North Korea’s nuclear weapons and missile development, the newspaper said.The extra funding will cover the cost of preparations for introducing the US military’s Aegis Ashore land-based missile interceptor system, the Nikkei said.Last week Japan’s defence minister, Itsunori Onodera, said the country plans to purchase long-range cruise missiles with a range of some 900 kilometres (560 miles) from US firms.The move is controversial as Japan’s pacifist constitution bans the use of force as a means of settling international disputes.Global anxiety about North Korea has steadily risen this year, with Washington calling on other UN members to cut ties with Pyongyang in order to squeeze the secretive regime.The call, however, has fallen short of persuading key North Korean backers China and Russia to take steps to isolate the regime.last_img

All Is Not Lost These Smithsonian Experts Help Save HurricaneSoaked Heirlooms

first_imgAdditional links, provided by FEMA:Video: Water Segment from Field Guide to Emergency ResponseVideo: Mud Segment from Field Guide to Emergency ResponseSmartphone app download: ERS: Emergency Response and Salvage appSalvage Procedures for Wet ItemsFind a ConservatorHeritage Emergency National Task Force Share Allison Lee/Houston Public MediaMuseum curator Teddy Reeves demonstrates a method of salvaging damaged photos at a workshop in Beaumont, Texas.When you escape a catastrophe with the clothes on your back and your dog in your arms, people sometimes try to comfort you by saying the rest are “things” and things can be replaced. But, some things can’t be — a family photo album, a scrapbook, grandma’s quilt. That’s what people in Houston are dealing with as they try to put their lives back together after Hurricane Harvey.And now, a small team of experts from places like the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Small Business Administration and the Smithsonian are trying to help. Teddy Reeves is one of a group of experts at tables inside a former Goodwill store in Beaumont, Texas. He’s normally a curator at the National Museum of African American History and Culture in D.C., but here he’s part of the joint Smithsonian and FEMA Heritage Emergency National Task Force.He’s showing nurse Rebecca Collins how to salvage water damaged family photos by using an aluminum foil turkey pan, a paint brush, and distilled water. Collins is wearing her scrubs, and stopped at the recovery center for assistance, before going back to work at the hospital. Along with photos, she wants to save her academic materials. “Pictures, documents, also certificates,” she says. “You know, like your diploma. And then, of course, I want my nursing books. Because it’s very important.”Allison Lee/Houston Public MediaTask force members like Laura Manaker have helped save photos, family Bibles and collectible prints.This program was launched last year, in the wake of the devastating flooding in Louisiana. Experts were also sent to South Carolina, following Hurricane Matthew.“We want to say we can salvage your grandmother’s quilt,” Reeves says. “We can help you salvage those photos from your high school graduation. Your high school diploma. We had someone who came in with a generational Bible that was passed down in their family. We can help you salvage those things.”That is, if you kept them. Diane Tinsley says she didn’t know they could be salvaged. “When I went over there to wait for the line, I started crying, thinking of all the pictures I had just thrown in the trash,” she says. Tinsley also threw away her thick family Bible, and most of her 357 record albums. “I should have researched it. But at the time, you’re not thinking. I mean, I walked around in a daze. You know, you’re just not thinking. You want that out of your house. And so you just start throwing everything away.”Today, she’s asking Laura Manaker, normally at the National Portrait Gallery in D.C., how to save her flood damaged collectable prints. “They all are stuck together, you know,” she says. “There’s probably about 35, 40 prints maybe.”For some items, it may be a relatively simple fix. Manaker tells her to put small weights on the corners of each print to prevent curling. But saving other things might be more trouble than it’s worth. “There are things that you might not be able to save,” Manaker says. “But we’re trying to let people know that all is not lost. You don’t have to throw out everything.”FEMA and the Smithsonian say they’re considering sending teams to Florida, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, but so far, the logistics are too complicated — and right now people in Puerto Rico are more focused getting their basic needs met.Allison Lee is a reporter for Houston Public Media.

Govt private offices in Bengal see stellar attendance despite bandh

first_imgKolkata: With overwhelming attendance in all state government and private offices, there was no impact of BJP’s bandh on normal life in Bengal.There was more than 95 percent attendance in all offices of the state government and the situation was similar in the state’s IT sector as well.With adequate number of buses plying on Wednesday and proper security arrangement in place to avoid any untoward incident, office-goers faced no inconvenience in reaching their destinations. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeSimilarly, the employees of the IT and ITeS sectors in the state also came to their offices without facing any trouble. The turnout of the IT sector was also more than 95 percent.Kalyan Kar, vice-president of Sector V Stakeholders’ Association, said: “There was no effect of bandh in the state’s IT sector as everything functioned normally like all other days.”According to a section of office-goers, the situation on Wednesday morning was comparatively better than other days as they felt that there were more buses on road than usual and they didn’t have to wait at all to get a bus to reach their offices. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedIn Nabanna, there was a turnout of around 95 percent employees, while the attendance at Writers’ Buildings, Bikash Bhavan, New Secretariat Building and Purta Bhavan stood between 95 to 98 percent. It was almost 100 percent in Khadya Bhavan.There were some employees who even stayed back in their offices on Tuesday and returned home after office on Wednesday. There were 30 such employees at Nabanna.Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has congratulated all employees of the state government for such an overwhelming response. She also congratulated employees of the private sector for the same, which has helped in keeping up the work culture of the state. It may be mentioned that there was tight security at the state government offices. There was security checking at all the entry points of the state secretariat. A lane of the road leading to the north gate of Nabanna was cordoned off and employees were allowed to enter the premises only after proper checking of their identity cards.An unmanned aerial vehicle, commonly known as a drone, was used to maintain vigil in and around the state secretariat.last_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 1 – Calvin Johnson and Dez Bryant, WRs, Detroit/Dallas: It’s tough when such high profile players come out of the gate with a thump but DO NOT trade these guys because of one bad game. They are key pieces to their offense and will publicly demand the ball if it isn’t going their way this Sunday. This also goes for anybody you picked in the first five rounds. Don’t be stupid, keep them on your team.2 – Julius Thomas, TE, Denver: This virtually unknown TE will continue to be a target for Peyton Manning and although he may put up a much weaker two reception, 40-yard Week 2, he’s much more likely to remain a consistent threat in this offense because of his incredible quarterback.3 – Joique Bell, RB, Detroit: We saw bits and pieces of his skill set this week and even last season as a serviceable by-committee running back. The only problem is that he’s now behind Reggie Bush as opposed to sharing time with Mikel Leshoure. He’s someone you want on your team in case Bush gets hurt but is not a strong week-to-week starter.5 – CJ Spiller, RB, Buffalo: Spiller hasn’t proven himself a long-term workhorse back and is spelled by a former first-round fantasy pick in Fred Jackson. I’d be a little worried about Spiller’s job if he continues to struggle and Jackson is able to perform better than him while on the field. But like I said earlier, he was your first round pick, don’t trade him after one bad week. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Remember Kevin Ogletree? He opened last season with eight receptions for 114 yards and two TDs. Most people ran to their waiver wire thinking they had the next great Cowboys receiver on their team. Two months later he scored his third TD of the season and just under two months from then he scored his fourth and final of 2012. In Week 2 against the Seahawks he had one reception for just 26 yards. It’s easy to overreact on one great game, most bad players have them, but it hurts the most when you grab that Week 1 stud and dump your 8th round pick who goes on to make the Pro Bowl after a tough start to their season. There’s also the case of Dez Bryant and Calvin Johnson, top-notch wide receivers who severely underperformed out of the gate but hold a strong track record. Each of the following players are rated from 1-10 on the Ogletree scale where a 1 means a future of success and a 10 means a future of failure and frustration for fantasy owners.

Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 0 Comments   Share   8 – Jerome Simpson, WR, Minnesota: His quarterback is Christian Ponder, need I say more? This is a team whose first priority is to hand the ball to Adrian Peterson and even when teams contain him he’ll still run for 125 yards and two TDs. Simpson pulled in seven receptions for 140 yards but I expect both of those to be season-highs, especially with Greg Jennings lining up beside him.
