Sweden to head UN Peacebuilding Commission group on Burundi

Sweden has been chosen as the new chair of the United Nations Peacebuilding Commission group tasked with helping the impoverished African nation of Burundi recover from recent conflict and avoid sliding back into chaos or misrule. The commission’s organization committee unanimously elected Sweden yesterday to succeed Norway as chair of the Burundi country-specific configuration. Burundi has been the victim of violent coups and political instability since gaining independence in 1962, but in late May the Government and a rebel group involved in recent fighting signed a cessation of hostilities declaration, raising hopes about the country’s peace process. Welcoming Sweden’s election, Ambassador Yukio Takasu of Japan, who is also Chairperson of the Peacebuilding Commission, and Burundi’s Ambassador, Augustin Nsanze, commended the Scandinavian country for its commitment to both the Commission and Burundi. They also thanked Norway for its efforts as chair since 2006. Sweden’s Ambassador, Anders Liden, noted that his country has recently joined the Commission and is keen on being an active member and supporter of its goals and objectives. Aside from Burundi, the Peacebuilding Commission – which was set up in December 2005 – also has country-specific configurations for the Central African Republic (CAR), Guinea-Bissau and Sierra Leone. 18 July 2008Sweden has been chosen as the new chair of the United Nations Peacebuilding Commission group tasked with helping the impoverished African nation of Burundi recover from recent conflict and avoid sliding back into chaos or misrule.

Tim Duncan Moved The Spurs Up The RetiredJersey Rankings

Mavericks37234.132.7 Cavaliers477139.099.2 Lakers6714672.8471.7 Nets507163.874.9 Grizzlies2200.00.0 While he was playing, Tim Duncan lifted the San Antonio Spurs up the list of the most successful teams in NBA history. Now that he has retired, Duncan — thanks to his recently retired jersey — has also made the AT&T Center rafters among the most talent-filled in the league.To rank every team’s group of retired numbers, I grabbed data from Basketball-Reference.com’s franchise pages and then filtered out honored non-players — like longtime Los Angeles Lakers announcer Chick Hearn (who has a microphone-themed banner hanging alongside the jerseys of Magic Johnson and company) or the No. 6 in Orlando, which is retired “in honor of the fans.” (Because they’re the “sixth man.” Get it?) For each team, I added up the total amount of value above replacement (VAR)1A cumulative value statistic based on a combination of Player Efficiency Rating and Win Shares per 48 minutes. generated by those players, both over their entire pro careers (across all franchises)2For my purposes, ABA statistics were given the same weight as NBA ones, because most former ABA teams that joined the NBA have retired the numbers of their ABA-era stars. and during their time with the specific franchise in question. Here’s the list, ranked by the latter category, to avoid ridiculous situations like the Miami Heat’s getting credit for Michael Jordan, whose jersey the team retired even though he never played for it. 76ers6710502.2295.2 Jazz437277.6232.0 Kings679229.6173.4 Clippers4700.00.0 Before Duncan’s number was retired, the Spurs’ retired-jersey crew ranked ninth all-time; now it’s in fourth place, behind the Boston Celtics and the Lakers — no shock there — as well as the Philadelphia 76ers, who’ve had a surprising number of truly great players contribute for them over the years. But if San Antonio eventually retires the numbers of current Spurs Manu Ginobili (38.1 VAR with the club) and Tony Parker (37.0), the Spurs could pass the 76ers for third, particularly because the closest Philadelphia has to a jersey-retirement candidate is ex-Sixer (and current Warrior) Andre Iguodala (17.5) — and because Iggy was no fan favorite, I doubt he’ll even be considered for the honor.Duncan also gives the Spurs an average of 31.3 VAR per honored player, which ranks fourth among all franchises — and is higher than that of both Boston (24.6) and Philly (29.5). The gold standard in this department belongs to the Chicago Bulls (36.0), who’ve retired only four players’ numbers — Hall of Famers Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen and multi-time All-Stars Bob Love and Jerry Sloan. (Artis Gilmore and Chet Walker must be wondering what they have to do for their numbers to be taken out of circulation.) But the Spurs’ retired-jersey strategy has struck a nice balance between upholding quality and not being overly picky; San Antonio has discontinued a player’s number every 6.3 years, more than twice as frequently as Chicago’s 12.8-years-per-player ratio. (Duncan’s No. 21 became the eighth number the Spurs have retired.3At least, according to Basketball-Reference.com. Technically, Bruce Bowen allowed San Antonio to unretire his No. 12 for LaMarcus Aldridge to wear, although I still included Bowen in the Spurs’ VAR total.)Other teams have less lofty standards of inclusion. As part of their apparent plan to commemorate every single member of their Bill Russell-era teams, the Celtics honored “Jungle” Jim Loscutoff despite his career average of 6.2 points per game, to go with a miniscule 8.3 lifetime Player Efficiency Rating (15.0 is league-average) and .017 Win Shares per 48 minutes (average is around .100). (In fairness, Loscutoff’s number was later kept active for Dave Cowens, a much better player.) Utah enshrined Darrell Griffith, whose nickname (“Dr. Dunkenstein”) was far superior to his stats (14.6 PER, .049 WS/48), and Portland honored Lionel Hollins (13.0 PER, .059 WS/48) even without a cool moniker to point to. Nate Thurmond became a Hall of Famer because of his performance as a Warrior, but his number was retired by Cleveland even though he played fewer than 12 percent of his career games as a Cav.Of course, winning titles like the Spurs have (five since 1999) is a surefire way to grease the wheels of jersey-retirement. It’s no coincidence that the bottom seven teams in the list above have won zero combined championships, and they’ve only retired three jerseys in total: One for a beloved local legend who played for a different franchise in the same city, and two for players who died during their careers. (Meanwhile, take the Knicks as a counterexample: They’ve won only two titles, and seven of their nine retired jerseys honor a player or coach4Yes, 12 coaches have had their “jerseys” retired, with the number often taking the form of their coaching victory total with the franchise (i.e., the number 832 is “retired” for Phoenix in honor of Cotton Fitzsimmons’s 832 career coaching wins). from those championship squads.)San Antonio wasn’t scrounging for numbers to retire before Duncan came along — it had already raised George Gervin’s iconic No. 44, and David Robinson’s No. 50 was well on its way, to go with some of their less-heralded teammates. But like he did for the Spurs as a franchise, Duncan has now elevated their honorees to the upper echelon of the NBA.Check out our latest NBA predictions.

Super secure USB stick looks like a Da Vinci Code puzzle

first_imgBefore you write this off as yet another USB stick that looks like it was made in Cupertino, trust us when we say that this is a really cool way to securely store your files and carry them around. Called the Crypteks, it’s a secure memory stick that uses both a mechanical lock and on board encryption to work to keep your data safe. Think of it as a makeshift two-factor authentication protocol that you set for yourself.Pictured above is the mechanical lock mechanism. Using the gear-like rings, a user sets an alpha password that will release the actual memory stick stored inside. If you have seen The DaVinci Code, it works much like the cryptex that was shown in the film, minus the destruction of the information if you get the password wrong.As far as encryption goes, the Crypteks uses a 256-bit AES hardware based algorithm to keep the data electronically secure as well.Launched as a Kickstarter project with a $12,000 funding goal, the Crypteks quickly reached and surpassed the full-funding level as sponsors fell in love with the design. There is no word on final pricing as of yet, but there is still time to get your name in for one if you donate to the project. Hopefully the cost will be reasonable (pledging $130 gets you an 8GB Crypteks at the moment), but we imagine that the first runs of the unit will be more expensive.Check out the concept video below, and just make sure your wallet is out of reach if you’re tight on funds.Read more at Kickstarterlast_img

Samaras faces reshuffle choice

first_imgPrime Minister Antonis Samaras is set to decide in the coming days on whether to reshuffle the Cabinet after PASOK leader and coalition partner Evangelos Venizelos, fresh from the party’s congress over the weekend, declared that he was ready to put active Socialist politicians in the government.When the tripartite coalition was formed after the June elections, Venizelos avoided putting front-line PASOK politicians in the Cabinet, choosing instead figures that were associated with the Socialists. On Monday night, though, he indicated that his party was ready to put front-line MPs into the government.“Of course political figures should participate in the government if we agree on policies,” Venizelos said in an interview on Mega TV.There have been rumors of an imminent reshuffle for the past few weeks but Venizelos’s latest comments, which came after he emerged strengthened from PASOK’s congress, suggest that Samaras will be forced to either proceed with changes or put the speculation to rest with a firm denial.Kathimerini understands that not all of the prime minister’s advisers are convinced that a reshuffle would be a good idea, especially given that personnel from key ministries cannot be changed as that would risk upsetting the implementation of Greece’s fiscal adjustment program. Other aides see the reshuffle as an opportunity to replace ministers and deputy ministers that are considered to be performing below par.One of the scenarios that has been suggested is that Venizelos will become part of the government, taking up the post of deputy prime minister and possible foreign minister.The PASOK leader has already identified lawmakers within his party that would be suitable for cabinet roles. These include Yiannis Maniatis, Evi Christofilopoulou and Paris Koukoulopoulos, who have previous cabinet experience, as well as several deputies who have not served in government before.PASOK is due to pick the general secretaries of its central political committee and political council this weekend.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img

We have been beating ourselves up with the Nassau to Florida route for so long, when there are so many other carriers that run that route,” said Tourism and Aviation Minister Dionisio D’Aguilar during the Budget Communication.D’Aguilar made the statements as he shared that Bahamasair may possibly cut back its domestic service. “There are other routes that we can take, other routes that we can make where we can earn something. We want to explore international routes which we can offer as non-stop direct because those are routes that are less competitive,” he added. According to D’Aguilar, competing with private companies for domestic service routes should not be the Government’s priority especially as the airline is “cash-strapped.” However, he said, private companies should be allowed to flourish. “So, as capacity increases, I think we will slowly exit and use our aircraft and resources to try and establish more international routes to bring people here on more non-stop direct flights,” he said.#MagneticMediaNews#Bahamasair#FNMBudgetCommunicationlast_img

He started showing symptoms of an E. coli infection four days later, but did not require hospitalization and is currently recovering.Last week, 2-year-old Jedidiah Cabezuela died after visiting the fair and contracting E. coli, at which point the fair indefinitely closed its animal exhibits.Health officials also confirmed E.coli in two other children who attended the fair — a 9-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl.The county also received reports last week of a fifth unconfirmed but probable case of the bacteria in an 11-year-old girl.People can avoid contracting the bacteria by thoroughly washing their hands after making contact with animals at places like farms, petting zoos and fair exhibits. Young children, older adults and people with weak immune systems are at particular risk, according to health officials.The HHSA and the California Department of Food and Agriculture have collected environmental samples at the fair in recent days to confirm the bacteria’s origin. However, results of the collected samples are not expected until after the fair closes July 4.“As we continue our investigation, more cases are likely to be reported,” said Dr. Wilma Wooten, the county’s public health officer. “This is typical of any public health investigation. Since we asked doctors to be on the lookout for (E. coli), they are more likely to test patients exhibiting symptoms.”While most people who contract E. coli do not develop severe complications, roughly 5 to 10% of those who contract the bacteria can develop a potentially life-threatening kidney infection. Symptoms do not appear for three to four days after contraction and can include severe abdominal cramps, watery or bloody diarrhea and vomiting.Residents should promptly call their doctor if they believe they have contracted E. coli, Wooten said, “especially if you have diarrhea that lasts for more than three days or diarrhea that is accompanied by a fever higher than 102 F, or blood in the stool, or so much vomiting that you cannot keep liquids down and you pass very little urine.” Categories: Health, Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img

Bell said she taught herself others

first_imgAdvanced registered nurse practitioner Kelly Bell acknowledged in her July deposition that she was self-taught in pain management control.Pain management was part of the nursing curriculum, and the rest of Bell’s training came from reading, she said.Bell belonged to a couple of national pain groups, which required only a medical license, interest in pain management and fee payment to join. She also attended seminars, read literature and belonged to online pain groups.In addition to teaching herself, Bell taught others. In her deposition, Bell said she taught Penny Steers, also an advanced registered nurse practitioner, about opioid prescribing when Steers came to work at the Payette Clinic.Even without any specialized pain management training, nurse practitioners such as Bell, Steers and Scott Pecora meet the state requirements for prescribing controlled substances.The Washington Nursing Quality Care Assurance Commission requires only the college coursework for advanced registered nurse practitioners in order to prescribe controlled substances, said Mary Dale, the commission’s discipline manager.When an applicant is granted an advanced registered nurse practitioner license, he or she also is granted privileges to prescribe controlled substances, Dale said.last_img

The police uncovered 24 Ziploc bags of cocaine and two bags of marijuana near and on his person. In his plea agreement, Robinson also admitted to possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug conspiracy related to his membership in Little Spelman. In July of 2012, Robinson ran away from the police with a loaded handgun, which he later dropped and which was recovered by the police.Along with a dozen years in the slammer, U.S. District Judge George L. Russell III sentenced Robinson to 10 years of supervised release after he leaves prison. The sentence was announced by the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J.

Researchers suggest rate of evolution change can explain discrepancy between molecular clocks

first_img(Phys.org) —A pair of researchers affiliated with several institutions in Australia, believe they may have found a way to solve the discrepancy problem that exists between molecular biologists and paleontologists who disagree on the likely first appearance of placental mammals. They describe their new dating approach, which they call a “morphological clock” in their paper published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences. Journal information: Proceedings of the Royal Society B Citation: Researchers suggest rate of evolution change can explain discrepancy between molecular clocks and fossil evidence (2014, August 27) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2014-08-evolution-discrepancy-molecular-clocks-fossil.html More information: Ancient dates or accelerated rates? Morphological clocks and the antiquity of placental mammals, Proc. R. Soc. B 22 October 2014 vol. 281 no. 1793 20141278. rspb.royalsocietypublishing.or … nt/281/1793/20141278AbstractAnalyses of a comprehensive morphological character matrix of mammals using ‘relaxed’ clock models (which simultaneously estimate topology, divergence dates and evolutionary rates), either alone or in combination with an 8.5 kb nuclear sequence dataset, retrieve implausibly ancient, Late Jurassic–Early Cretaceous estimates for the initial diversification of Placentalia (crown-group Eutheria). These dates are much older than all recent molecular and palaeontological estimates. They are recovered using two very different clock models, and regardless of whether the tree topology is freely estimated or constrained using scaffolds to match the current consensus placental phylogeny. This raises the possibility that divergence dates have been overestimated in previous analyses that have applied such clock models to morphological and total evidence datasets. Enforcing additional age constraints on selected internal divergences results in only a slight reduction of the age of Placentalia. Constraining Placentalia to less than 93.8 Ma, congruent with recent molecular estimates, does not require major changes in morphological or molecular evolutionary rates. Even constraining Placentalia to less than 66 Ma to match the ‘explosive’ palaeontological model results in only a 10- to 20-fold increase in maximum evolutionary rate for morphology, and fivefold for molecules. The large discrepancies between clock- and fossil-based estimates for divergence dates might therefore be attributable to relatively small changes in evolutionary rates through time, although other explanations (such as overly simplistic models of morphological evolution) need to be investigated. Conversely, dates inferred using relaxed clock models (especially with discrete morphological data and MRBAYES) should be treated cautiously, as relatively minor deviations in rate patterns can generate large effects on estimated divergence dates. Explore further Research team claims fossil-only study of placental mammalian evolution time frame is wrongcenter_img To date the first appearance of a something in the biological record, modern scientists have two main tools—dating fossils and using what’s known as a molecular clock, where DNA techniques are used to follow the evolution of species divergence. Problems come in when the two methods offer different results. That’s been the case with researchers attempting to date the first arrival of placental mammals. The earliest fossils suggest they showed up on the scene approximately 66 million years ago. The molecular clock approach, however, suggests it happened long before that, approximately 90 to 100 million years ago. In this new effort, the research pair suggest a way to resolve the difference (without claiming that the difference is because older fossils have just not been found.) They call their approach a morphological clock, which is based on the progression of anatomical differences that arise in a species, rather than DNA tracing. Using it, they suggest it’s possible that placental mammals first arrived as early as 160 million years ago. But they have a caveat, they suggest, that the speed at which evolutionary changes took place could have changed, which if taken into account, would bring the time frame closer to 66 million years ago. As for why a change in speed of evolution might have taken place, the team notes that it might have occurred soon after the dinosaurs went extinct—which would have opened up a whole new niche that could have been filled very quickly by the advent of placental mammals.If this new approach is to be taken seriously, it would cast doubts on the accuracy of molecular clocks in general—they’re based on the assumption that evolution occurs at a fixed rate. It could also help explain the “sudden” appearance of a wide variety of species 540 million years ago—the Cambrian explosion—which many believe led to the appearance of all modern animal groups. © 2014 Phys.org A four-day-old mouse.

The challenge for radiologists and medical physicists is to find the optimal dosage for each CT exam. “I think SSDE is one step closer to a dose metric that will be more accurate in depicting the actual risk to patients,” said Seibert.

When we compensated for the different-sized phantoms, it turned out the patient received almost the same dose in both scans.” In the paper “Dose is Not Always What it Seems” Anthony Seibert, professor of radiology, and his colleagues discuss the need to improve dose calculations. They point to an actual case in which a pediatric patient who had scans before and after surgery appeared to receive an overdose on the second CT. Further investigation showed that the problem was a misleading metric — the volume CT dose index (CTDIvol), a standard measure of radiation output in CT. Manufacturers use phantoms along with instruments that measure radiation to assess CTDIvol. However, different companies use phantoms of different sizes. In addition, many dose estimates are based on adult sizes, making pediatric estimates more difficult. This is not the only area where differences between scanners can obscure dosage. In another paper, “Methods for CT Automatic Exposure,” Boone, Seibert and colleagues addressed the challenges of optimizing different machines.

McKenney, formerly of UC Davis; and Sandra L. Wootton-Gorges of UC Davis. UCDOSE is funded through a pilot grant from the University of California Office of the President. Ramit Lamba, director of CT, outlines a number of methods to reduce radiation doses for both patients and doctors performing the procedures.

APs top songs of 2017 SZA Bruno Mars Cardi B

first_imgAP’s top songs of 2017: SZA, Bruno Mars, Cardi B, Sam Hunt by Mesfin Fekadu, The Associated Press Posted Dec 13, 2017 7:08 am PDT Last Updated Dec 13, 2017 at 7:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this June 11, 2017 file photo, Jack Antonoff of the band Bleachers performs in Camden, N.J. Bleachers’ “Don’t Take the Money,” was named as one of the top songs of the year by the Associated Press. (Photo by Owen Sweeney/Invision/AP) center_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – The top 10 songs of the year by Associated Press Music Editor Mesfin Fekadu.1. SZA, “The Weekend”: Firstly, it samples Justin Timberlake’s masterpiece, “Set the Mood (Prelude)/Until the End of Time.” Secondly, SZA is singing vulnerable lyrics about sharing her man with another woman, or women (dating is a struggle, people!) And thirdly, SZA paints the picture vividly with her crisp vocals matched to a smooth beat. This is storytelling. It’s also creative, realistic and addictive. I listened to it Monday through Friday, and on the weekends.2. Bruno Mars, “That’s What I Like”: Bruno Mars is perfect. That is all.3. Remy Ma, “Shether”: The best seven minutes I’ve spent all year was listening to Remy Ma’s scorching, blazing, punchy and hard-hitting diss track toward Nicki Minaj. Over the beat of Nas’ incomparable “Ether” diss on Jay-Z, Remy’s rhymes remind you that female rappers shouldn’t be the only ones worried about her — her male peers need to be nervous, too.4. Childish Gambino, “Redbone”: Donald Glover’s “Redbone” — reminiscent of George Clinton — is funky, trippy and groovy, and easily one of the year’s best tunes.5. Cardi B, “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)”: “I don’t dance now, I make money moves,” Cardi B raps on her breakthrough hit, proving that her past as a stripper and reality TV star didn’t stop her from becoming music’s breakout star of the year. “Bodak Yellow” was just as addictive as Cardi B’s funny, silly and likable personality. But she’s also a serious rapper: She made money moves in 2017, and here’s to hoping she makes major grooves in 2018.6. Dua Lipa, “New Rules”: When you need a reminder to leave that jerk you’re dating, put on Dua Lipa’s “New Rules.” And if you want to learn how to throw the ultimate slumber party, watch Dua Lipa’s awesome “New Rules” music video.7. 2 Chainz featuring Jhene Aiko, Ty Dolla $ign and Trey Songz, “It’s a Vibe”: Issa vibe! No, really, it is, a vibe, indeed. A chill, head-bopping one.8. Bleachers, “Don’t Take the Money”: Jack Antonoff continues to show he’s an epic music-maker: Whether it’s producing for Taylor Swift or writing with Lorde and Sara Barellies, he knows how to make the perfect pop song. And the best one he crafted this year was one you might have missed — “Don’t Take the Money,” from his Bleachers project, is a tasty upbeat tune best heard while dancing at a club or in front of the mirror.9. Kesha, “Praying”: Coming after a tumultuous time in Kesha’s life, “Praying” showcases a side of the singer that is lyrically vulnerable, vocally capable, and overall exceptional. The song, deservingly, earned the pop singer her first Grammy nomination. If only she wasn’t competing with Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You.”10. Sam Hunt, “Body Like a Back Road”: Sam Hunt continues to bring swag to country music with his calm vocals and cool songwriting. “Body Like a Back Road” rode to the beat of 2017.Honourable mentions: Kendrick Lamar, “Humble”; J Balvin and Willy William featuring Beyonce, “Mi Gente Remix”; Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, “Despacito”; Logic featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid, “1-800-273-8255”; Miguel featuring Travis Scott, “Sky Walker”; DJ Khaled featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, “Wild Thoughts”; Little Big Town, “Better Man”; Maroon 5 featuring SZA, “What Lovers Do”; Niall Horan, “Too Much to Ask”; Fifth Harmony, “He Like That”; Jorja Smith, “Teenage Fantasy.”last_img

Chinas Communist Party being punished for once believing that it could be otherwise Taxi drivers who fail a Mandarin proficiency test (most Hong Kong people are native Cantonese speakers) are banned from picking up passengers downtown or at the airport and the word local in any language is illegal as it implies an allegiance to Hong Kong over Beijing A recurring motif: time-lapsed shots of a sinister fog spilling over the citys skyscrapers blanketing the glow of the city "I think its quite realistic really it could happen within five years" 36-year-old moviegoer Cheung Siu-chung says of this vision Its a rainy Monday night after the coldest day in Hong Kong in six decades and the United Artists cinema at Cityplaza shopping mall is desolate until the end of the screening of Ten Years which was sold out "And frankly we cant do anything about it Its obvious now that Beijing controls everything The local government wont help us; the police wont help us" Ten Years opened on Dec 17 at a theater across Victoria Harbour where it quickly beat Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the box office Less than two weeks later on the day before New Years Eve a 65-year-old publisher named Lee Bo disappeared He was last seen at his warehouse on Hong Kong Island which housed the books that made his publishing house Mighty Current Media infamous and wildly popular: salacious novels and purported histories describing the secret gay sex lives of Chinese politicians and in meticulous detail how Chinas First Lady Peng Liyuan lost her virginity Lees disappearance was not without precedent: four of his colleagues had gone missing in October while traveling outside of Hong Kong; one Gui Minhai resurfaced earlier this month on Chinas state television broadcaster slumped over and seemingly distressed making a clearly scripted confession to a fatal drunk driving accident that happened 11 years ago Gui who held a Swedish passport had returned to the mainland he said because "his roots are in China" Shortly after Lee went missing he contacted his wife to tell her that he had willingly traveled to across the Chinese border to "assist" with a police investigation Its easy to get to the mainland from Hong Kong an hour or so from downtown if you take the MTR Hong Kongs immaculate metro system but Hong Kongers need to produce a special travel permit to do so Lees wife later found his permit at home Earlier this week she went to the mainland to met with him at a "secret" location under dubious circumstances returning to Hong Kong with a letter he had putatively written claiming that he was happy and healthy and instructing Hong Kong police to stop wasting resources investigating his case "The fact that Lee Bo has stated in his letters that he is unhappy with the controversy created by his disappearance seems to indicate that the authorities would prefer to handle the booksellers case without public oversight and without reference to Chinese and international law" William Nee who researches China at Amnesty Internationals East Asia office in Hong Kong says Ironically Lees request that Hong Kong authorities stop pursuing his case seems superfluous In the month that has passed since he was last seen in Hong Kong lawmakers in the territory have reacted with ambivalence even as Western governments have decried the case as a potential violation of human rights and Hong Kong jurisdiction Earlier this month Jasper Tsang the pro-Beijing lawmaker who heads Hong Kongs legislative body asked mainland officials to publicly say that their involvement with Lee did not violate Hong Kongs constitution which grants the territory a "high degree of autonomy" within the broader umbrella of Chinese rule But no direct response came and the Hong Kong government has not publicly followed up "The Hong Kong government appears to now have considerably diminished autonomy and the Liaison Office [Beijings headquarters in the territory] is strengthening its position" Steve Vickers CEO of Steve Vickers and Associates a specialist political and corporate-risk consultancy says "The Liaison Office operates outside of the Hong Kong legal system and Hong Kong people cannot question its actions or even seek a judicial review That is one of the major factors leading to unease" “From the mainland public security perspective I suspect [mainland officials] see the booksellers as a direct challenge to the authority of the state The bulk of clients for these booksellers are mainland tourists and the security services view the publishers as proxies for representing hostile or foreign forces" Vickers says “I think the current action is calculated to cause people to keep their heads down when it comes to producing seditious material as the Chinese public security see it But it has also sent a chill through the business and social arenas in Hong Kong” This unease the fear of mainland power subsuming Hong Kong and erasing its freedoms has a long history By some estimates as many as a million Hong Kongers fled the territory to countries like the US, 13.
