A world in poverty cannot be a world at peace Annan saysA world in poverty cannot be a world at peace Annan says

In a speech to the Third European Forum for Sustainable Development and Responsible Business (FEDERE 2004) in Paris, delivered by UN Development Programme (UNDP) Associate Administrator Zéphirin Diabré, Mr. Annan said, “Governments certainly have the premier role in implementing (partnership) agreements and creating the conditions necessary for sustainable development that benefits the greatest number. “But the private sector and businesses also have an important role to play. That’s why I have tried for many years to associate the private sector with the search for solutions to the problems of our time and to encourage business to show civic responsibility.” In this regard, he launched the Global Compact in 1999 to gather the world of business, the world of labour, civil society and UN agencies around nine universal principles on human rights, work norms and environmental protection. He was happy to underline that more than 1,000 businesses, many of them French, now take part in the initiative. In June 2003, he created a commission on sustainable development for the private sector, which has as its goal stimulating the spirit of enterprise and creativity in developing countries to accelerate sustainable development and reduce poverty. read more

Ireland easily overcome poor Australia to win International Rules seriesIreland easily overcome poor Australia to win International Rules series

first_imgIreland: Paddy O’Rourke, Colm Begley, Colm Boyle, Ciaran Byrne, Sean Cavanagh, Paul Conroy, John Doyle, Paul Flynn, Lee Keegan, Ciaran Kilkenny, Paddy McBrearty, Jack McCaffrey, Neil McGee, Chrissy McKaigue, Ciaran McKeever, Kevin McLoughlin, Conor McManus, Ross Munnelly, Michael Murphy, Ciaran Sheehan, Michael Shields, Zach Tuohy, Aidan Walsh. Ireland 116 (173)Australia 37 (72)IRELAND DEFEATED AUSTRALIA 116-37 this evening to win the second test and secure the International Rules series by a comfortable margin at Croke Park tonight.Paul Earley’s side ultimately defeated their opponents by an aggregate score of 173-72.Among the home team’s highest scorers on the night were Conor McManus 2-4 (24), Ross Munnelly 0-4-1 (13) and Michael Murphy 0-4-0 (12).Ireland had started the game at a blistering pace, with goals from Conor McManus and Jack McCaffrey helping them secure a 27-8 first-quarter lead.It left the aggregate score at 84-43, thereby effectively killing off any hope of Australia producing a dramatic fightback, with the visitors already having to recover a considerable deficit from the first test.The hosts then added to their opponents’ misery on the half-hour mark, with Ciaran Kilkenny scoring a beautifully worked goal that also involved fine play from Ross Munnelly and Sean Cavanagh, helping Ireland register a 53-16 half-time lead.On 47 minutes, Ireland’s dominance continued, as McManus palmed the ball into the net for his second goal of the game. Consequently, by the end of the third quarter, the victory was already looking emphatic, with the Irish leading 78-25.Three goals in relatively quick succession followed thereafter, with Paddy McBrearty getting Ireland’s fifth six-pointer, before Eddie Betts and Lewis Jetta then did the same for Australia, yet they were no more than consolation strikes by that stage.Paul Conroy then put the icing on the cake on 70 minutes, as his free bounced fortuitously into the net as Murphy got in the way of the Australian keeper.Ireland thus recorded a record 173-72 aggregate victory, winning the series for the second time on the trot in the process. Australia: Steven Motlop, Jarrod Harbrow, Leroy Jetta, Daniel Wells, Ashley McGrath, Lindsay Thomas, Christopher Yarran, Tony Armstrong, Lewis Jetta, Eddie Betts, Sharrod Wellingham, Shaun Edwards, Mathew Stokes, Cameron Ellis-Yolmen, Alwyn Davey, Jake Neade, Joshua Hill, Dominic Barry, Aaron Davey, Nathan Lovett-Murray.LIVE: Ireland v Australia, International Rules second test>Cameraman pushed off Segway during New Zealand cup final>last_img read more

EU nations to consider joint military operation to Central African RepublicEU nations to consider joint military operation to Central African Republic

first_imgIT IS TOO EARLY to speculate whether Irish troops will be sent to the Central African Republic (CAR) as part of a proposed European-wide joint military action plan, said the Department of Defence today.European Union nations are due to consider plans for a joint military operation in the Central African Republic as worsening sectarian strife there raises fears of large-scale civilian massacres.Ambassadors to the EU will be asked at a meeting Friday whether to approve the rapid deployment of a European military force that could include hundreds of troops to help African and French peacekeepers already on the ground to restore security, said an EU official speaking on condition of anonymity.Irish Defence ForcesThe Department of Defence said any decision to send Irish troops to CAR would be a decision “made by government ultimately”.They added: “If and when the EU make a decision then the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Department of Defence would be approached.” They reiterated that it was too early to make any sort of speculation as to whether Ireland would be involved in the proposed mission.An EU official said: “The question (to ambassadors) will be ‘Do you think the situation in the Central African Republic merits European involvement?’“If they agree, detailed options will be put on the table Monday or Tuesday,” the official said.DecisionA final decision would be taken by the bloc’s 28 foreign ministers at talks in Brussels on January 20.Some 1,600 French troops and 4,000 UN-mandated African peacekeepers have deployed across the impoverished state in recent weeks to end violence between Christian militias and ex-rebels who installed the country’s first Muslim leader in a coup in March.The violence is believed to have killed more than 1,000 people last month alone with almost one million people driven from their homes, including half of the residents of the capital, Bangui.With the CAR’s institutions in disarray, the force could take on policing duties in the capital while protecting refugees and aid workers and possibly safeguarding the airport, taking over there from French troops.Additional reporting – © AFP, 2014Read: At least two children beheaded among 16 dead in Central African Republic – UNICEF>Read: Ireland pledges €2 million in aid to Central African Republic>last_img read more

Nintendo to Double Switch Production From 8 to 16 MillionNintendo to Double Switch Production From 8 to 16 Million

first_img ‘Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President Earlier this week, we reported that the Nintendo Switch has sold approximately 1.5 million units worldwide. According to Nintendo, it is the fastest selling Nintendo system in the Americas and Europe. The handheld/console hybrid is a success. Due to the device’s impressive sales numbers, Nintendo is now planning to ramp up production from 8 million units to 16 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.In that same report, it is stated that Nintendo plans to ship 2.5 million Switch units by the end of March. Originally, the company was only going to ship 2 million this month. There have already been reports of shortages, so shipping half a million more consoles should hopefully help.The Wall Street Journal report doesn’t provide more information on this and Nintendo has yet to make an official announcement on how many Switch consoles it has sold. The sales numbers come to us via SuperData, and not Nintendo directly. You would assume that, given the circumstances, Nintendo would be boasting about how many Switch units it has sold.By upping production from eight to sixteen million consoles, Nintendo is taking a huge risk. After all, its last system, the Wii U, only ever sold 13 million during its entire lifetime. Nintendo must feel very confident about the Switch if it thinks it can sell 16 million consoles. Right now, this seems like an unrealistic sales projection given the lineup of games available on Switch. While the system is slowly getting more titles, none of them are system sellers like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is.Will Nintendo be able to sell 16 million Switch consoles by the end of its fiscal year (March 2018)? It is difficult to say. Though the current crop of Switch titles isn’t exactly impressive, the fall promises to have big titles like Super Mario Odyssey. If Nintendo were to release brand-new Pokemon and Super Smash Bros. games in the next year, then that would certainly help the Switch become an undisputed success. At this point, though, it does appear that Switch won’t suffer the same fate as the Wii U.Buy it now!The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the WildNintendo Switch Stay on targetlast_img read more

Holding compares Wenger Emery at ArsenalHolding compares Wenger Emery at Arsenal

first_imgArsenal’s Rob Holding believes new coach Unai Emery has brought more structure to their defence to what they previously had under Arsene WengerThe Spaniard replaced the long-serving Wenger in the Arsenal dugout in the summer and has since enjoyed a 16-match unbeaten run.Emery revealed on Thursday that Arsenal were in decline under Wenger and that he’s had a lot of work to do on the club’s defence since arriving.Now Gunners defender Holding has backed what Emery said, while discussing the differences between the two coaches.“Wenger was very good for me as a manager and what he did for me,” Holding told Sky Sports.“He encouraged me to play out from the back, showed me how to and gave me confidence.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“The main difference is how we’re defending when we’re attacking. When we’re up the other end of the pitch, how we are organised and prepared for a counter. That has been the biggest difference.“We’re really focusing on video work, moving as little as five yards in some positions which makes all the difference when getting to the ball.“When we were playing we would be stood there and no one would be talking to each other, whereas now there is much more communication.“We seem a bit more organised and a bit more together at the back.”Holding has made 12 appearances for Arsenal this season ahead of Sunday’s Premier League game at Bournemouth.last_img read more

Time Incs Money Gives Advertisers Custom Messaging and Creative OptionsTime Incs Money Gives Advertisers Custom Messaging and Creative Options

first_imgAd messaging will be customized according to the target market and audience segment, and the ads will have a personalized code that can be entered online to get an offer to be redeemed at a local dealership. In this case, the image below—the backside of the two-page ad—is the one that has the custom message and coding. Variable messaging has been an option for advertisers for a while now, but this process, says Time Inc., blends the custom message better with the surrounding ad thanks to higher quality print technology. Previous versions used a lower-quality inkjet process that resulted in messaging that sometimes clashed with its surrounding creative. Also new with IntelliPrint is the ability to provide a more in-book experience whereas previous variable messaging was offered as a polybagged outsert. Chrysler’s ad, for example, will be bound into the issue. Money is the launch brand for a new custom printing option Time Inc. is offering its advertisers that lets them vary their messaging for targeted markets and audience segments. Called IntelliPrint, it’s offered with Money‘s printer Quad/Graphics and the plan marries Time Inc.’s customer database with Quad’s technology to run the customized messaging. Money, says a spokesperson, is the first brand to use IntelliPrint and the company is planning to offer it for other brands as well.The initiative is being led by Time Inc.’s Branded Solutions group. Chrysler is the first advertiser to use the program and is running two ad pages as a single sheet insert in the July issue. In this case, Chrysler is running the ad for 350,000 of Money‘s subscribers in nine markets—Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Los Angeles, Orlando, Phoenix, Washington, D.C. and New York. Three audience categories were selected for the ad, which features the new Town & Country minivan: families with kids, health and fitness enthusiasts and technology enthusiasts. last_img read more

5 cricketers of Indian origin who enjoyed successful runs with England team5 cricketers of Indian origin who enjoyed successful runs with England team

first_imgDue to its long colonial history, England now has an ethnically diverse population. Among the non-white people to have made this country their home, South Asians, especially Indians, stand out prominently. Obviously, when they immigrated, they took their cultural proclivities including their love for cricket with them.No wonder then, that England’s large cricket community has benefitted from the influx of cricketers belonging to Indian stock. If one scours through the county circuit, he will find a large number of players from South Asian background. Many of them have forged a successful career for their domestic teams while a few have managed to make a big splash even on the international stage. Let’s look at five most prominent English cricketers of Indian origin who had some success at the top level.Nasser HussainHussain will go down as one of the most important figures in English cricket history. Not just because he was the first person of Indian descent to captain the side but also because of his great strategic and tactical brilliance. Born in Chennai, Hussain’s family shifted to England during his childhood. He took over the reins of English Test team towards the end of 1990s when they were at an all time low and even got booed at Lord’s after his team lost a home series to New Zealand. Thereafter, Hussain formed a great partnership with Duncan Fletcher, the coach of the team, and revived England’s fortunes. Shrewd, cunning, astute, Hussain was also known for being highly aggressive and adept at mind games. As a batsman, he wasn’t stylish but doughty and tenacious. An Ashes double hundred in 1997 which led to his team’s victory would remain his finest personal milestone. Monty Panesar had some good times in the England Test teamTwitter/FOX SPORTS CricketMadhusudan ‘Monty’ Singh PanesarMonty started his career well with some solid performances. But he didn’t become a consistent performer and was eventually overtaken by Graeme Swann as England’s lead spinner. But there was a revival of his fortunes in 2012 when England toured three Asian countries. He first had success in UAE against Pakistan but lost his place during the Sri Lanka tour. However, the greatest moment of his career, arguably, came in 2012 when his bowling proved the decisive factor in England’s historic win in India. But Monty couldn’t follow up these performances in Asia with results on non-Asian wickets and eventually went out of the Test team. Some late-night shenanigans at a night-club during 2013 summer also added to his woes. However, his brilliance on the India tour would remain a memorable performance. Ravi Bopara’s inconsistency prevented him from becoming a great cricketerReutersRavinder ‘Ravi’ Singh BoparaRavi Bopara is an immensely talented batsman who couldn’t live up to his promise despite getting enough chances at the international level. Watching him bat, one can immediately guess his ethnic identity. He has those supple wrists and elegant style of stroke-making which is a trademark of Indian batting. And he seemed to cement his place in the team after scoring hundreds in three consecutive innings against West Indies in 2009. But Bopara completely faltered in the Ashes series later that year and could never regain his place. He did have some successful runs with the ODI team but was discarded after the 2015 World Cup debacle.Mark Ramprakash was a gifted player but underachieved in his careerTwitter/Mark RamprakashMark RamprakashMark Ramprakash’s paternal family was from Guyana belonging to the Indian stock. He was enormously talented and seemed technically sound. Not surprisingly, Ramprakash got selected into the England team at the age of 21 but remained an inconsistent member of the team. He ended up playing 52 Tests without ever becoming a mainstay of the side. The right-hander could eventually score only two Test hundreds. Outside international cricket, he was a highly prolific player in county circuit and racked up more than 100 first-class hundreds. An enormously capable batsman, Ramprakash would be remembered as someone who didn’t live up to expectations. Samit was a useful all-rounder for EnglandTwitter/Nottinghamshire CCCSamit PatelBelonging to the famous Gujarati Diaspora, Samit Patel was touted as a very competent all-rounder for England but couldn’t achieve great results in international cricket. A good left-arm spinner and useful lower-order batsman, Patel broke into the England team as early as 2008 but didn’t achieve much. He returned in 2011 and had modest success in all formats without setting the stage on fire. Eventually, not enough runs and not enough wickets meant that he was out of the team without much chance of regaining his place.last_img read more

Guatemala tops femicide list in Central AmericaGuatemala tops femicide list in Central America

first_imgGUATEMALA CITY – When you open a newspaper in Guatemala you are invariably greeted by a series of numbers: how many people were killed the previous day and how many people have been arrested in conjunction with the crime. The answers are typically: high and zero.During the past decade, the number of women appearing in these articles has been rapidly increasing – so much so that a recent report found that more femicides occur in Guatemala than in any other country in Central America. A study by human rights organizations across the region found that in the past year 707 women have been murdered in Guatemala, followed by 606 in Honduras and 321 in El Salvador.The countries with the least number of “femicide” deaths in the past year were Costa Rica with 50, Panama with 53 and Nicaragua with 76.In 2008, the Guatemalan government passed a law that defined femicide as a specific crime against women, carrying a prison sentence of 25 to 50 years, without parole. Last year a special prosecutor and police units and tribunals were set up to deal exclusively with the gender-related crime, but so far the country’s high femicide rate shows little signs of abating.Mario Polanco, from Grupo de Apoyo Mutuo, one of the rights groups that helped carry out the research, said that in 2012 in Guatemala an average of 57 women were violently killed each month; however, this year the figure has increased to 66.“We view with concern that Guatemala is the country that heads up the highest number of women killed in the period that this report was conducted [2012-2013],” Polanco said. “We recognize that the northern region of Central America is the most complicated.”Human rights groups say Guatemala is currently witnessing epidemic levels of violence against women. Raped, murdered and mutilated, their bodies are dumped in rubbish bags and abandoned in public places.In the last decade more than 6,000 women have been murdered in Guatemala and only 2 percent of their killers has been sentenced.In response to the report, Guatemalan Vice President Roxanna Baldetti said that security must be doubled to prevent femicides.At the start of December, two men were sentenced to 180 years each in prison for murdering four women in Guatemala City. It is hoped that over the next year the country’s recently introduced femicide unit will start to see more results like these, bringing the perpetrators of crimes to justice and showing that there is no impunity for crimes against women, even in Guatemala.

Nevada officials reach out to Dbacks on potentialNevada officials reach out to Dbacks on potential

first_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ “Our defense definitely played really inconsistent last year,” Campbell told Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf Monday morning. “There were some games where we looked like we didn’t belong in the NFL. We had some games that we played well and some signs of greatness. I really feel like a lot of the guys have that chip on his shoulder from last year and want to make a big difference.” Top Stories What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinkecenter_img Between the NFL’s lockout and the hiring of new coordinator Ray Horton the argument could be made that the Arizona Cardinals’ defense is behind the eight-ball. With just four weeks before the team’s first regular season game and the fact that the defense struggled in 2010, there is a lot of work to do.That doesn’t seem to worry Cards defensive end Calais Campbell. He knows the defense is motivated to get it right this season. Comments   Share   Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right awaylast_img read more

Me Im fine just pissed he said after the gamMe Im fine just pissed he said after the gam

first_img“Me? I’m fine, just pissed,” he said after the game.The Cardinals had 12 total first downs and averaged just 3.0 yards per carry. Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton and Matt Barkley combined to complete 16-of-30 passes for 154 yards and a pair of interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown. Catchable throws were dropped and open receivers were missed.Yuck.“Very disappointing performance, especially offensively,” Arians said. “After practicing against a team all week, we should play much better. Our quarterback play was not up to par, any of the three.“Defensively, we’ve got to do a better job of getting off the field on 3rd-and-long. It’s been a problem all camp.”Indeed, little went right for the Cardinals as they concluded their week in San Diego. In fact, about the only real positive in the game, outside of a handful of specific players who came up big, was that it looks like Arizona escaped without any serious injuries.However, Arians revealed after the game that receiver Larry Fitzgerald has a “slight MCL” issue and linebacker Alex Okafor has a torn biceps tendon, which may require surgery but does not necessarily have to. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact That’s the idea.“Every part of you says it’s the preseason because it is the preseason,” quarterback Carson Palmer said. “We’ve got to continue to work — we will. You don’t let it frustrate you. You just continue to find ways to get better and look at all the areas that are good, look at all the areas that are bad, evaluate them and move forward.”Palmer admitted there is more in the bad category than the good.There are two preseason games left between now and the Week 1 tilt with the New England Patriots, so there is time to right the ship. The issue may be a lack of opportunities.Last week, Palmer threw five passes during his lone drive. Against the Chargers, he attempted eight passes in his three series. Now, part of the lack of attempts and reps has to do with the offense’s inability to pick up first downs and move the ball, but even if the team was rolling, the veteran and the rest of the first-team offense still would not be on the field much.That’s the reality of the preseason, where teams balance protecting players’ health with trying to get them ready for the games that count.Palmer said the practices against the Chargers were more difficult than the game if only because he had more chances. “He could play with it no problem,” the coach said.At least there’s that. That, and the fact that while the loss dropped the Cardinals to 0-2 on the preseason, it’s still the preseason. But Arians said teams find out a lot about themselves in the exhibition games.So at some point, the Cardinals wouldn’t mind seeing the type of football that led them to 13 wins, the NFC West title and the NFC Championship game last season.“We’ve got to get it together,” Arians said. “This is two games where we have not played very well.”The coach cited young players’ mistakes as the reason for the first loss and noted that youth also played a role in Friday’s defeat.Asked at what point he starts getting concerned about his sputtering offense, Arians replied, “never.”Still, it’s time for the Cardinals to start playing better.“You look at it and you know it’s still the preseason but at the end of the day you have to go out there and put drives together and put plays together,” running back Chris Johnson said. “I think it is just getting in that rhythm.“There are just a few kinks we need to work out but now is the perfect time to have those problems. I feel like by next week we will work them out. I think you’ll see a totally different team by next week.” “But when you get limited opportunities you want to be perfect, and it’s hard to be perfect, and we weren’t perfect,” he added.Given that the Cardinals had one of the best offenses in the NFL last season and returned basically everyone who contributed to that, chances are the wrinkles will get ironed out. After all, it would be difficult to picture that entire side of the ball just falling off a cliff.The sooner it happens, the better everyone will feel.“I just want to make first downs and move the ball like we’re capable of doing,” Arians said. – / 20 Top Stories 0 Comments   Share   center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians stands on the sideline during the first half of the team’s preseason NFL football game against the San Diego Chargers, Friday, Aug. 19, 2016, in San Diego.
