Floods in western Kenya prompt UN to provide emergency relief

11 November 2008The United Nations humanitarian wing has dispatched an emergency team to western Kenya, where floods following heavy rainfall have forced more than 7,000 families out of their homes and submerged entire villages. The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported that its staff are working with Government officials and non-governmental organization (NGO) aid partners to assess the needs of the displaced families.The emergency team is working with its aid partners in the towns of Eldoret and Kisumu to assess the available relief stocks and is also supporting national and district authorities to set up an aid pipeline to ensure the relief response is coordinated.The flooding is worst in Budalangi district of Western province, near the border with Uganda, where the Nzoia River burst its banks yesterday after heavy rains upstream, breaching dykes and submerging villages. Budalangi is prone to flooding each year and over 28,000 families were affected by floods in 2007.

Brazilian beach volleyball star named UNESCO Champion of Sport

31 August 2009The Olympic gold medallist and Brazilian beach volleyball star, Jacqueline Silva, will partner the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in its efforts to promote education for all, including the disadvantaged and vulnerable. The Olympic gold medallist and Brazilian beach volleyball star, Jacqueline Silva, will partner the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in its efforts to promote education for all, including the disadvantaged and vulnerable.UNESCO Director-General, Koïchiro Matsuura, will appoint Ms. Silva, who won gold in the 1996 Atlanta Games, as one of the Paris-based Organization’s Champions for Sport in a ceremony tomorrow at its Headquarters.Ms. Silva joined the Brazilian national volleyball team at the age of 14 and by 1994 was recognized as the best in the world by the Association of Volleyball Professionals. Two years later she became the first Brazilian woman – alongside her compatriot Sandra Pires – to win an Olympic medal.In 1999 she founded the Jackie Silva Institute, which now has 49 centres across Rio de Janeiro aimed at developing new talent and offering opportunities to some 6,000 vulnerable and underprivileged young people. As well as training in sports, the centres provide workshops and lectures on HIV and AIDS prevention, teenage pregnancy and drug consumption. UNESCO’s efforts to promote inclusive education are based on the universal right to quality education that combines learning and personal development, with a special focus on vulnerable and disadvantaged groups. Ms. Silva shares UNESCO’s belief that the values of sport are factors for peace and development, the agency said in a news release, adding that the athlete will plan an active part in educational projects, especially in Portuguese-speaking countries.She joins the ranks of other distinguished UNESCO Champions for Sport, which include German Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher, three-time World Cup winner and Brazilian football legend Edson Arantes do Nascimento (also known as Pelé), Ukrainian Olympic champion pole-vaulter Serhiy Bubka and Belgian Olympic women’s tennis and Grand Slam champion Justine Henin.

Toronto stock index lower on sharp drop in gold prices as bullion

TORONTO — Canada’s largest stock index was relatively flat Monday as falling commodities prices outweighed gains in the health-care and consumer sectors.The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index shed 3.54 points to 15,316.02, with gold leading decliners.Bullion stocks lost an average of 0.97 per cent of their worth on the TSX, as the August gold contract declined $10.00 to US$1,246.40 an ounce.Oil and gas companies were also among the biggest losers on the commodity-heavy index, shedding an average 0.60 per cent of their worth.The price of oil inched forward Monday after plummeting to a 10-month low the week prior. The August crude contract rose 37 cents to US$43.38 per barrel.Canadian investment strategist Craig Fehr anticipates oil to remain at or below the US$50 a barrel mark and for gold to continue to experience some weakness, as data suggests inflation won’t spike higher in the near future.The performance of those two commodities will be closely tied to that of a large portion of the TSX, said Fehr, who works at Edward Jones in St. Louis.Meanwhile, Valeant Pharmaceuticals Intl. (TSX:VRX) led the charge for the health-care sector, where stocks gained an average of 2.41 per cent.Shares of the Quebec-based drugmaker rose $1.68, or 8.03 per cent, to $22.61 after the pharmaceutical giant’s stock surged more than six per cent last week on news that prominent U.S. investor John Paulson had joined the company’s board of directors.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average gained 14.79 points to 21,409.55, while the S&P 500 edged up 0.77 of a point to 2,439.07. The Nasdaq composite fell 18.10 points to 6,247.15.The Canadian dollar was trading 0.17 of a U.S. cent higher than the average price of 75.54 cents US.Elsewhere in commodities, the July copper contract remained relatively unchanged at about US$2.63 a pound and the August natural gas contract rose 9.8 cents to roughly US$3.05 per mmBTU.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter.

Rate increases lift Union Pacific’s 2Q profit 10 pct., railroad offers cautious outlook AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Josh Funk, The Associated Press Posted Jul 18, 2013 8:25 am MDT OMAHA, Neb. – Union Pacific Corp. says rate increases helped lift its second-quarter profit by 10 per cent, even though the number of carloads the railroad hauled slipped by 1 per cent.The Omaha, Neb.-based railroad said Thursday that it generated $1.11 billion in net income, or $2.37 per share, in the quarter that ended June 30. That’s up from $1 billion, or $2.10 per share, in the same months last year.Revenue rose 5 per cent, to $5.47 billion.Analysts surveyed by FactSet predicted Union Pacific would report earnings of $2.35 per share on $5.5 billion in revenue.Even after the strong quarter, Union Pacific CEO Jack Koraleski remained cautious.“As we move into the second half of the year, the economic outlook remains uncertain, but we’re hopeful that we’ll see some economic improvement in the months ahead,” Koraleski said.Union Pacific’s stock slipped 43 cents in pre-market trading to $159.25.Coal volumes were roughly even with last year’s weak levels, suggesting that demand may have bottomed out. Over the past two years, many utilities have cut back on coal purchases because of relatively cheap natural gas prices and environmental concerns.The railroad reported stronger revenue in every area except agricultural products and intermodal containers.Union Pacific said the volume of intermodal containers imported off of ships fell 8 per cent in the quarter as activity at West Coast ports slowed. The number of containers moved off of trucks to the railroad increased 3 per cent.Union Pacific said revenue improved 12 per cent in its automotive, chemical and coal businesses, and industrial products revenue grew 7 per cent.Union Pacific operates 32,400 miles of track in 23 states from the Midwest to the West and Gulf coasts.___Follow Josh Funk online at www.twitter.com/funkwrite___Online:Union Pacific Corp.: www.up.com

Average US rate on 30year mortgage steady at 371 per cent

FILE – In this Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2016, file photo, a sold sign sits next to a house under the final stages of construction in Plano, Texas. On Thursday, March 31, 2016, Freddie Mac reports on the week’s average U.S. mortgage rates. (AP Photo/LM Otero, File) WASHINGTON – Average long-term U.S. mortgage rates were unchanged to slightly higher this week after declining the previous week.Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the average rate on a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage was steady at 3.71 per cent. The benchmark rate also remained close to the 3.70 per cent level it marked a year ago.The average rate on 15-year fixed-rate mortgages edged up to 2.98 per cent from 2.96 per cent last week.Prices of U.S. government bonds and their yields — which move in opposite directions— also showed little change over the week, in contrast to their sharp swings in recent weeks.Mortgage rates tend to follow Treasury bond yields. The yield on the 10-year Treasury bond stood at 1.83 per cent Wednesday, down from 1.87 per cent a week earlier. The yield slipped to 1.82 per cent Thursday morning.Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, in a speech Tuesday, reaffirmed the Fed’s plans to move slowly in raising the interest rates it controls. That prospect could keep a lid on mortgage rates in coming weeks.To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country at the beginning of each week. The average doesn’t include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 per cent of the loan amount.The average fee for a 30-year mortgage was unchanged from last week at 0.5 point. The fee for a 15-year loan also held steady, at 0.4 point.Rates on adjustable five-year mortgages averaged 2.90 per cent this week, up from 2.89 per cent last week. The fee remained at 0.5 point.

ZENS introduces seamless inductive charger for the Galaxy S3

first_imgOf all the accessories you can have for a phone, I think my personal favorite is an inductive charger. While many phones support the feature, very few come with it standard due to the added expense. Even phones that don’t support the technology directly often see it hacked on through one process or another. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is quickly becoming one of the most popular Android devices across the world, so it’s no surprise at all to see a company standing up to offer an inductive charger for the phone.ZENS, a small European technology firm started in 2011, has announced that they are releasing a replacement battery cover for the Samsung Galaxy S3 that will add the inductive charging functionality to the phone. All you will need to do is replace the battery cover, and any time you want to charge the phone you place it on the mat that is provided by ZENS. Anytime the phone is set on the mat, it will immediately begin charging the phone. ZENS doesn’t mention at what rate the phone will charge, however. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of many smartphones recently that rely on a one amp charger in order to charge rapidly. If the provided pad does not output at one amp, your Galaxy S3 will take longer than usual to charge through this solution.The ZENS charger complies with the Qi wireless power standards for charging a device through induction, which means the pad will support inductive devices from other manufacturers as well. Currently the ZENS wireless charger is only available internationally, and there’s no mention of whether or not the product will be available in the US. The ZENS charger is much easier to setup than the other inductive charger currently being developed by PowerMat, which requires you to line a card up with the pins on the battery and wedge a piece of plastic in between the battery and cover, so hopefully the ZENS system comes to the US soon.More information on the ZENS unit can be found on their website.last_img

Samsung Bruxelles enquête sur un éventuel abus de position dominante

first_imgSamsung : Bruxelles enquête sur un éventuel abus de position dominanteLa guerre des brevets qui fait rage dans le secteur des terminaux mobiles connaît un nouveau rebondissement avec l’entrée en jeu de la Commission européenne. Celle-ci vient en effet d’ouvrir une enquête sur Samsung, qu’elle soupçonne d’abus de position dominante.La Commission européenne vient d’annoncer avoir ouvert une procédure à l’encontre de Samsung. Bruxelles soupçonne la firme coréenne de faire valoir, de façon abusive, certains de ses droits de brevets essentiels “dans le but de fausser la concurrence sur les marchés européens des appareils de téléphonie mobile”, indique la Commission dans un communiqué (lien non disponible).À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Samsung est lancé depuis des mois dans une véritable guerre des brevets qui l’oppose à plusieurs constructeurs de terminaux mobiles, comme Apple et HTC. La firme coréenne a déposé des demandes auprès de différentes juridictions nationales visant à faire interdire la vente de certains produits de ses concurrents, “arguant de violations présumées de certains de ses droits de brevets, que (la Commission) juge essentiels à la mise en œuvre des normes européennes en matière de téléphonie mobile” rappelle le communiqué. Bruxelles entend alors déterminer si Samsung a violé “son engagement irrévocable, donné en 1998 à l’Institut européen des normes de télécommunications (ETSI)”, par lequel il doit octroyer des licences d’exploitation de ses brevets, dits essentiels, car liés à une norme européenne, et ce “à des conditions équitables, raisonnables et non discriminatoires”. Une violation qui, si elle est avérée, pourrait équivaloir à un abus de position dominante affectant le commerce et enfreignant la concurrence. Ce comportement constitue d’ailleurs l’argument de défense d’Apple dans la guerre qui l’oppose à Samsung. La firme à la pomme accuse son concurrent de ne pas respecter son engagement.Le 2 février 2012 à 09:06 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img

2014 Magazine Launches Outpacing Last Year in Q1

first_imgMediafinder has released its first quarter report on magazine launches and closures. This year is shaping up better than the previous year, as 45 print magazines launched in 2014 verses 27 in 2013.There is some bad news, however. Closures this year outpaced 2013, with 14 versus 9. Still, that equals a two-year net market gain of 48 new (or revived) titles in Q1.Breaking it down further, 36 of the launches this year are consumer-facing titles and 9 are in the b-to-b space. But all 14 closures this year are consumer titles.In 2009 there was a net market loss of more than 120 titles over the entire year, and things looked bleak. However, the industry is clearly rebounding–with stable net gains since 2010.last_img

Researchers find fishing tends to lessen population of best male bass

first_img(Phys.org)—A team of researchers from the University of Illinois has found that recreational fishing that employs the use of lures to catch largemouth bass, results in a reduction in male bass that make the best fathers. In their paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the group writes that their research shows that male bass that tend to their young are more likely to be caught by hooks hidden in fish lures. Depiction of largemouth bass in its habitat. Micropterus salmoides. Credit: Timothy Knepp/Wikipedia. © 2012 Phys.org With largemouth bass, after the female lays her eggs, it’s up to the male to protect them. They do so by fanning the eggs and driving away threats. Those that do a better job of it, tend to have more offspring survive. But, this new researcher suggests, the same aggressive behavior that some bass exhibit when protecting their young, can cause them to be more vulnerable to being caught by sport fishermen.Because of the popularity of bass fishing, the fish are bred in reservoirs and are then released into the wild in places where fishermen go to catch them; otherwise all the fish would be caught and there would be none left to fish. Over time those that manage fish populations have come to realize that some bass are more likely to strike at a lure and thus be caught then others. Some fishermen prefer such fish, while others prefer those that are more difficult to catch. To serve the needs of both, both types of fish have been bred and are then released into different areas to account for the different tastes.Suspecting that the two groups of fish might have other differences as well, the research team set up underwater cameras to watch the males as they cared for the eggs of their young in hatcheries. In so doing, they discovered that those fish that took their job very seriously, appeared to consider a lure a threat, and thus were more likely to attack it, resulting in them being caught. Conversely, those fish that were more lackadaisical in their responsibilities tended to be less likely to be caught.The end result, the researchers say, is that the best fathers wind up being the ones that get caught, thus their young never hatch and grow up to pass on their good father genes, which means that recreational fishing actually impacts the evolution of bass populations.

Although many quantitative models assume that larger, more fecund fish are preferentially removed by fishing, there is no empirical evidence describing the relationship between vulnerability to capture and individual reproductive fitness in the wild. Using males from two lines of largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) selectively bred over three generations for either high (HV) or low (LV) vulnerability to angling as a model system, we show that the trait “vulnerability to angling” positively correlates with aggression, intensity of parental care, and reproductive fitness. The difference in reproductive fitness between HV and LV fish was particularly evident among larger males, which are also the preferred mating partners of females. Our study constitutes experimental evidence that recreational angling selectively captures individuals with the highest potential for reproductive fitness. Our study further suggests that selective removal of the fittest individuals likely occurs in many fisheries that target species engaged in parental care. As a result, depending on the ecological context, angling-induced selection may have negative consequences for recruitment within wild populations of largemouth bass and possibly other exploited species in which behavioral patterns that determine fitness, such as aggression or parental care, also affect their vulnerability to fishing gear.
