“The Sahel’s vast size and long, porous borders mean that such challenges can be addressed successfully only if the countries of the region work together,” he told the Council at the start of a meeting on the situation in the region. The meeting, which also adopted a Presidential Statement, was also addressed by World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, and Romano Prodi, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for the Sahel.“The United Nations will continue its efforts to promote security, good governance and resilience,” he said, calling also for more to be done to address food crises that plague the Sahel as well as to improve conditions in migrants’ communities of origin while generating more legal opportunities for migrants to work abroad. Mr. Ban recalled his visit with Mr. Kim last month to four Sahel countries – Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso and Chad – citing a ‘very moving” visit he made to Timbuktu in northern Mali, a region seized by radical Islamists in 2012 before they were driven out by French-led forces. “People there are struggling to recover from human rights abuses and upheaval,” he said. “I was given an opportunity to view the cultural treasures that had been damaged in attacks. This was a terrible loss for Mali – and for our common global heritage – but with UNESCO’s (UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) help, we are moving to safeguard it.” But he added that, despite progress made towards re-establishing constitutional order in Mali, which over the past two years has witnessed a military coup d’état, fighting between Government forces and Tuareg rebels, and the seizure the north by the Islamists, he remains concerned with the security situation. He called for continued strengthening of The UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA), a 12,600-strong force set up by the Council in April and authorized “to use all necessary means” to carry out security-related stabilization tasks, protect civilians, UN staff and cultural artefacts, and create the conditions for provision of humanitarian aid. The Sahel stretches from Mauritania in the west to Eritrea in the east, a vast belt dividing the Sahara desert and the savannahs to the south, which has undergone three major droughts in less than a decade and where more than 11 million people are at risk of hunger and 5 million children under five are at risk of acute malnutrition. Mr. Prodi said that only a strategy going beyond existing efforts would allow the Governments of the region to overcome the immense challenges facing them and move towards long-term peace and stability, and he warned that the current global economic climate and competing needs elsewhere in the world constricted both the attention and funding required. Efforts undertaken by the UN system in the area of governance include capacity-building to improve delivery of essential services and the promotion of political inclusion, while activities to strengthen national and regional security have focused on border management and the prevention of violent ideology. In the area of development a pilot programme pledged by the Italian Government to provide solar-powered water purification equipment to hundreds of families will begin shortly.In a Presidential Statement the Council reiterated its continued concern at “the alarming situation” in the Sahel and reaffirmed its commitment to address the complex security and political challenges there. In light of the challenges, the 15-nation body reaffirmed its request to the Secretary-General to ensure early progress towards the effective implementation of the United Nations Integrated Strategy for the Sahel.“The Security Council underscores the importance of a coherent, comprehensive and coordinated approach encompassing governance, security, humanitarian, human rights and developmental aspects to respond to the threats to peace and security,” it said, highlighting the importance of sanctions as a tool in countering terrorism.
Motor Codes has appointed two new non-executive directors to help further strengthen the organisation’s offering to MOT, service and repair centres and warranty product providers. Tim Heavisides, group CEO of Car Care Plan and Provident Insurance, and Wendy Williamson, marketing director at Unipart, will provide guidance, strategic overview and expertise in vehicle warranties and the independent garage sector. The two new non-executive directors join existing Motor Codes board members Alec Murray (former chairman of RMI), Paul Willcox (MD of Nissan GB) and Terry Barcham (MD of Snap-on Tools). “I firmly believe in the aims of Motor Codes and am keen to support the effort to raise customer service standards across the industry,” said Wendy Williamson. “The service and repair sector has had a bad name for long enough, and I believe that Motor Codes can turn around an unfair reputation.” Tim Heavisides said, “The success of Motor Codes is proven by the long-standing New Car Code, which covers 99% of all new cars sold. I’m committed to playing my part in making the Service and Repair Code every bit as successful. Delivering maximum customer satisfaction and support is what these Codes are all about, and their success will be hugely beneficial for customer confidence and the reputation of the industry.” “The appointment of our two new non-executive directors, both from industry-leading companies, marks another important chapter in the development of Motor Codes,” said Chris Mason, Motor Codes director. “We have big plans for the future and 2010 is set to be a pivotal year as we aim to increase significantly the number of independent garages subscribing in addition to further consolidating the significant uptake by franchised dealers.” Car Care Plan is a long-standing supporter of regulation for the warranty sector, having subscribed to the Vehicle Warranty Products Code and its predecessor since 1995. Unipart has committed to have all 600 of its Car Care Centres signed up to Motor Codes by summer 2010. Garages can subscribe to the Service and Repair Code for just £75 at www.motorcodes.co.uk. Some of the benefits that subscription entitles garages to include a wealth of free marketing materials, independent arbitration in the event of a customer complaint and a listing on the search function of the Motor Codes website which is used by over 300,000 people annually.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)
Green Bay defensive Tackle Tony Hargrove became the latest casualty of the “Bountygate” scandal that originated in New Orleans.The Packers cut him on Friday evening rather than wait for him to complete his NFL-mandated eight-game suspension for his role in the affair.Hargrove was among the several current and former Saints players and coaches whom Commissioner Roger Goodell cited this spring as having participated in the infamous bounty program that offered financial incentive to knock opposing players out of the game.The former Georgia Tech star has long maintained his innocence, accusing the NFL of lying about his involvement. The league has insisted that Hargrove was heard on tape saying “Give me money” after the team was told that Vikings quarterback Brett Favre had suffered a broken leg in the 2009 NFC Championship game.Hargrove has maintained that the voice heard was not his, but the league has remained unmoved.“It wasn’t me” he said in a statement released in June. “That’s right. The NFL got their evidence all wrong. In their rush to convict me, they made a very serious error. … Like I said, lean in closer, look closer, listen closer. It is not my voice, Anyone who knows me well knows that it’s not me. But the NFL does not know me well. They simply make assumptions. With … my … life.”The Packers signed Hargrove on March 30 as an unrestricted free agent, well before the NFL handed down its punishment for the “pay-to-play” scandal a few weeks later.The team knew some kind of punishment was headed Hargrove’s way, but apparently feel now that he isn’t worth the headache. Hargrove was among five players the team cut Friday as it works its roster down to the 53-man limit by 7 p.m. next Friday.Green Bay had the option of retaining Hargrove’s rights as he sat out the first eight weeks of the season without counting him against the 53-man roster. The team would have had a week or so to decide what to do with him when his suspension was complete.But it was obvious with the lack of playing time that Hargrove was receiving in the preseason that the Packers were having buyer’s remorse and had little interest in his services.Hargrove will be free to sign with any team in the league after his suspension is over.
However on Tuesday, the day of the US election, MPs were told the definition was to change and reservists would be ready for deployment after only the first phase. The change means that close to 2,000 reservists will effectively have completed training between six months and a year earlier than expected, according to experts.Critics claimed the change was made because the Government was due to miss out on its target, which was adopted alongside major cuts to the full-time Army.Nia Griffith, Labour’s shadow defence secretary, told The Daily Telegraph that ministers were “fiddling the figures” and questioned whether it could have an impact on the “frontline”. “We need to see a clear plan to address concerns about future gaps in the Armed Forces’ capability, rather than simply shifting the goalposts by changing the training requirements,” she said. “With so little clarity from the Government about reserve recruitment, how can we have full confidence in the capability that lies behind them?”However government sources insisted the change had been made so that more reservists were available to help combat flooding in Britain. Tory ministers have been accused of “fiddling the figures” to hit an ambitious recruitment target for Army reservists after they quietly changed the definition for completing training. For years there have been concerns over whether the Government can hit its promise of building an Army Reserve of 30,000 by 2020, though there has been improvement recently.Previously a reservist would be ready for UK deployment after they completed two “phases” of training, one general and one specialist.

The row threatens to re-toxify an issue that blighted David Cameron’s premiership after he oversaw cuts to defence in the wake of the financial crisis. In 2013, Mr Cameron announced that the Army would be cut from 102,000 to 82,000, but also said that the Army Reserve would double from 15,000 to 30,000. Since that decision ministers have been told they are set to miss that target by a watchdog and admitted they have struggled to recruit and retain reservists. In the last 18 months improvements were made with the total Army Reserve exceeding yearly targets, but the rate of growth has been too slow. On current trends, the 2020 target will be missed according to expert analysis. Michael Fallon, the Defence Secretary, announced in Parliament this week that reservists will be deemed to have reached “trained strength” after completing just one of two training phases. That means they can be deployed in the UK to help with floods, manage crowds and other tasks that can benefit from military organisation – though not frontline roles like counter-terrorism. It also means reservists will complete their training more quickly – a speeding up of the system that will help the Government hit its 30,000 reservists by 2020 target. Peter Quentin, a research fellow at the Royal United Services Institute, said: The announcement has convenient twin benefits, immediately improving the highly politicised headline recruiting statistic, while also freeing-up significant manpower to help fulfil those homeland resilience roles for which reservists are well-placed and sufficiently trained. It is worth noting that the recruiting targets are currently being exceeded, but they were always due to ramp-up later in the decade. So regardless of this subtle reclassification, the Army’s efforts to recruit, train and retain its reservists must be continually improved because the ultimate target is not that six-figure number on a spreadsheet, but a force that is disciplined, trained and ready to serve the nation at home as much as overseas.An Army spokesperson said: “To meet the increased utility and productivity requirement, the Army broadened the definition of trained strength to include Regular and Reserve Army Phase One trained personnel in July.” “This has increased the pool of manpower available for a national emergency. Any deployment of Phase One trained personnel would be subject to appropriate supervisory ratios and duty of care regimes.” To meet the increased utility and productivity requirement, the Army broadened the definition of trained strengthArmy spokesman We need to see a clear plan… rather than simply shifting the goalposts by changing the training requirementsNia Griffith, Labour’s shadow defence secretary In 2013, Mr Cameron announced that the Army would be cut from 102,000 to 82,000 (file picture) Credit:OMAR SOBHANI/REUTERS

The release of open source drivers for Kinect has opened the flood gates on experimentation with the motion controller, and this latest project should be picked up and released as an official Kinect game in our opinion.Using the libfreenect drivers and openFrameworks, Emily Gobeille and Theo Watson have created a digital shadow puppet show like no other. The Kinect is used to do skeleton tracking on the arm of the puppeteer. It determines where the shoulder, elbow, and wrist are and then uses their movement to affect the movement of the colorful character projected on the wall. Fingertips are also tracked allowing the brid’s beak to open and close.The end result is the best shadow puppet show I’ve ever seen, and something that’s sure to enthrall young children sitting around the world. It could also help sell a few more Kinects for Microsoft.This is only the beginning of the project, though. Theo has plans to start reacting to depth so he can possibly get the projected characters turning their heads and looking at their audience. Who knows, we might even get 3D shadow puppets eventually.Microsoft, make that call and get this in production now!Read more at Vimeo, via Engadget
The Backpack Program didn’t take long to outgrow its initial clientele of 75 children. It didn’t take long to outgrow its namesake, either.But after nine years, thousands of kids and a couple of transitions in take-home technology, it’s still the Share Backpack Program.Share, a Vancouver-based nonprofit organization, sends more than 1,500 food bags home with local children each Friday during the school year.Volunteers at the Share Fromhold Service Center pack 11,000 pounds of food into those 1,500 take-home bags each week, then distribute them to about 70 schools in six districts.A unique challenge at one school recently showed the commitment of Share volunteers and school staffers, said Diane McWithey, executive director of Share.In February, a fire destroyed Crestline Elementary School in the Evergreen district.“Crestline burned on a Sunday,” McWithey said. Evergreen Superintendent John Deeder had those displaced children back in class, at five different elementary schools, on the following Thursday.“And we had the backpacks follow the children to the appropriate schools on Friday,” McWithey said.To have the bags delivered to the right children at five different schools with no lapse in service, well, “that says so much for those counselors and teachers,” McWithey said.Crestline counselor Kirsten Bledsoe choreographed that seamless transition, Evergreen spokeswoman Carol Fenstermacher said.Clark County Public Health is not involved in the program, but the department conducted a survey in 2012 to evaluate it.“There was a sense that it was a good program, overall, but there was no research or data,” said Tricia Mortell, public health program manager.
A Vancouver man reportedly in the midst of a break-up has been arrested in connection with a fire Friday at a home in Clark County’s Sunnyside neighborhood.Timothy C. Meagher, 57, was taken into custody at a cabin in Cougar and booked into Clark County Jail on suspicion of domestic violence arson, according to a bulletin from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.Meagher was seen entering a house at 6208 N.E. Wilding Road about 12:45 p.m. an hour before a neighbor saw smoke coming from the eaves and called 911, the bulletin said. Firefighters arriving at the house near Interstate 205 and Northeast St. Johns Road reported finding black smoke coming out of the attic window and fires burning in multiple spots on the first floor. No injuries were reported, but damage was estimated at $100,000, according to the CCSO bulletin.Investigators with the Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office concluded the fires had been deliberately set using an accelerant, the bulletin said.Meagher, who was seen leaving the house 20 minutes before the fire started, was located at a cabin in Cougar owned by his employer. The bulletin said Meagher did not have permission to be in the cabin, and a neighbor alerted authorities after noticing a suspicious vehicle parked in front of it.The CCSO said investigators believe arson is related to the ending of a relationship between Meagher and the home’s owner, James L. Hanson, 52. Both men listed the house as their residence according to voter registration data from 2012.
MaharshiTwitterSuperstar Mahesh Babu’s Maharshi has fetched whopping amount for its producers from the sale of its overseas theatrical rights. But its price is said to be 34 per cent lesser than that of Bharat Ane Nenu.Mahesh Babu is probably the most popular Telugu actor in the international markets especially in the US, where he enjoys a massive fanbase. His last outing Bharat Ane Nenu has collected over Rs 30 crore gross at the overseas box office and earned over Rs 15 crore for its international distributor, who had shelled out Rs 18.20 crore on its rights. The movie was said to have incurred losses to them.It was rumoured that producer Dil Raju quoted Rs 18 crore as the price for the overseas theatrical rights of Maharshi. But no distributors apparently showed interest to buy the rights at such high price. The overseas distributors had sulked that Mahesh Babu’s movies were not providing them with any profits in recent years. But the greedy producers were demanding a hefty amount for rights.The producers of Maharshi were said to try hard to get at least for Rs 12 crore from its overseas rights. When none came forward, they handed over the movie to Great India Films, which earlier distributed Bharat Ane Nenu. It is reported that the distribution house has closed a deal for Rs 12 crore.The bosses of Great India Films have confirmed the news about acquiring the overseas theatrical rights of Maharshi, but they did reveal the price. They tweeted, “Pleased to associate with @SVC_official, @VyjayanthiFilms and @PVPCinema for #Maharshi. Our 4th film with The Super Star after #Athadu #Pokiri and #BharathAneNenu.” Mahesh Babu in MaharshiTwitterGreat India Films is one of the leading distribution houses in the international markets. It has released over 50 south Indian movies in overseas markets. Baahubali: The Beginning 2, Baahubali: The Conclusion, Bharat Ane Nenu, Bhaagamathie, Premam (Malayalam) and Naa Peru Surya are some of the big ticket films distributed by it in various foreign countries.Maharshi, which is set for release on May 9, directed by Vamshi Paidipally and produced by C. Ashwini Dutt, Dil Raju and Prasad V. Potluri, under the banners of Vyjayanthi Movies, Sri Venkateswara Creations and PVP Cinema. Mahesh Babu, Pooja Hegde and Allari Naresh are playing the lead roles in the movie.
Monitor the latency of a Windows PC with LatencyMon by Martin Brinkmann on June 19, 2018 in Software – 2 commentsLatencyMon is a free-for-home use software program for Microsoft Windows devices that monitors the latency of the system when run to point out issues and assess the system’s real-time audio and other latency-depending performance.Latency issues can impact the experience that you have when working on a computer. While you may not see much of an issue when editing Word documents, you may experience lag, stutter, freezes, and other issues while playing games or streaming content that are caused by latency issues.Windows users have a couple of options to resolve and analyze latency related issues. We described in the past how you can reduce gaming latency in Windows using a simple Registry tweak or program that does that for you, and how to monitor the latency of all TCP connections.LatencyMonLatencyMon is a program that you may want to add to the arsenal of tools. You need to install the program before you can start using it.The program does not monitor the system automatically when you run it; you need to click on the start button to start the monitoring.It monitors the system when you run it and records hard pagefaults, interrupted service routines (ISR), Deferred Procedure Calls (DPC) for drivers, processes, and the CPU.While that is somewhat technical, LatencyMon displays an assessment of the system’s capabilities right away in its interface.You may want to check out the information listed in the other tabs of LatencyMon if the program suggests that the PC has latency issues or if you experience them even though LatencyMon does not suggest there are any.The processes, drivers, and CPUs tabs may help you figure out why you are experiencing latency issues on the PC.The tabs highlight the processes with the most hard pagefaults, drivers with the highest ISR and DPC counts, and the performance of each CPU core in regards to ISR and DPC.Processes may need to be sorted by hard pagefaults; you can do so with a click on the column header. LatencyMon displays processes and the number of hard pagefaults then. It is a good idea to start with the highest offenders and go from there.A hard pagefault is recorded whenever Windows reads data from the Page File. The developer of LatencyMon notes that hard pagefaults of audio software run on the system often results in audio dropouts, clicks, and pops.Drivers may also cause latency issues and LatencyMon displays drivers and their ISR and DPC count in the interface as well.You may be able to resolve issues in regards to latency once you have discovered the cause. If it is caused by hard pagefaults, you may work around the situation by adding more RAM to the PC, assigning more RAM to the audio application if possible, using a RAM disk, or even disabling the pagefile (which should not be done, usually).If it is a driver that is at fault, you may want to check if updates are available for the driver. If not, you may contact the manufacturer to report the issue that you experience. Sometimes, a rollback to previous drivers may also fix the issue.Closing WordsLatencyMon is a useful program for Windows to analyze latency issues. The free version can be run in non-commercial environments only. A professional version of LatencyMon is available that offers the same functionality but can be run in commercial environments.Now You: Did you ever run into latency issues?Summary12345 Author Rating4.5 based on 9 votes Software Name LatencyMonOperating System WindowsSoftware Category AdministrationLanding Page http://www.resplendence.com/latencymon Advertisement

Share Study Finds Houses Moving Fast in the West, Slow in the East in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Buyers looking for their perfect home on the West Coast need to move fast, judging by the results of Trulia’s latest look into how long homes stay on the market.Trulia’s two-month study of metro areas around the U.S. this spring found that eight of the 10 fastest-moving housing markets are in California. The Bay Area, where fewer than 30 percent of homes remained on the market after two months, topped the list. Outside California, Seattle and Salt Lake City showed to be the markets where homes disappear from the listings quickly.Across the country it’s a different story. The three slowest markets in Trulia’s study are in New York, the slowest being Long Island and Albany, where roughly 70 percent of homes remained on the market after two months.One notable exception in the east is Cape Coral, Florida, where the pace of sales has shot up dramatically since last year. A year ago, Trulia found that about 60 percent of homes for sale in Cape Coral-Fort Myers were still listed after two months. This year, that percentage is down to 47. Richmond and El Paso had similar increases in sales pace.Compared to a year ago, the overall pace of sales nationally has sped up. Last spring, about 62 percent of all homes Trulia track nationwide were still on the market at the 60-day mark. Wednesday’s report showed that number is now down to 60 percent.What’s quickening the pace of sales? “It turns out it’s homes priced at the low end of the market,” said Trulia economist Ralph McLaughlin. Trulia gave each metro its own price cutoffs based on what’s considered high-end, mid-range, and low-end locally. “On average, lower-priced homes moved fastest,” McLaughlin said. “Only 50 percent of homes in this tier were still on the market after two months, compared with 65 percent of higher-priced homes.”Price, however, can be deceiving. California’s homes in particular are high-dollar properties. But, McLaughlin said, expensive markets usually happen where inventory is tight and new construction in the face of growing demand is limited. “So homes get snapped up quickly,” he said. “And this is bad news for first-time homebuyers.”Then again, so is the fact that homes at the lower end, especially in high-demand markets, are prime targets for homebuyers everywhere. “First-timers … are already getting slammed by declining affordability and slow wage growth,” McLaughlin said. “Now, even the homes they might be able to afford seem to be disappearing in the blink of an eye.” Home Sales Housing Markets Trulia 2015-04-15 Scott_Morgan April 15, 2015 474 Views

Nixon’s finances are complicated and involve her private corporation, named the Fickle Mermaid Corp., as well as a family foundation and income from investments, royalties and residual payments for television and film. Nixon paid state income taxes in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Utah, Illinois and California.Most of the income received by Nixon and her wife, Christine Marinoni, in 2017 was derived from investments, royalties and Nixon’s work as an actor. Marinoni earned $128,000 working as a senior adviser in New York City government in 2017; she left the job earlier this year. Nixon and Marinoni filed jointly. They had a total federal tax bill of $150,000 and a state and local tax liability of $63,000.The couple contributed about $53,000 to a variety of environmental, education, arts and children’s charities, including the Girl Scouts, homeless shelters, the Montauk Public Library and a hospice. Nearly $8,000 worth of contributions were not itemized.Nixon’s campaign allowed reporters to review Nixon’s tax documents for two hours on Friday. Releasing tax returns is common for candidates for governor. Nixon’s Democratic primary opponent, two-term incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo, released his tax returns last month, while Republican candidate and Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro released his taxes on Thursday.

other she holds the hand of her five-year-old daughter who has accompanied her to the square where they intend to stand as traffic whizzes past A cold wind makes the AAP flag gently slap the pedestrians passing by It a fitting image for the election A fierce AAP wind is sweeping Punjab’s Malwa region threatening to change the politics of north India The Akalis have been swept away ruthlessly The BJP has been reduced to a helpless spectator Only the Congress stands in the way trying to stop the AAP and its own decline into political irrelevance What started as an undercurrent in the region that has 69 Assembly seats and thus holds the key to Punjab is now turning into a movement for a paradigm shift in Punjab politics In every nook and corner of Malwa the region that is khabbe paase (left of) the Sutlej the only noise you hear is that of the impending change Punjabis have a unique way of putting into words the change they are trying to vote in on 4 February: "Ina ne saadi 60 saal litti hai Ae toh maada ki houga Paanch saal Ina nu bhi mauka de dena hai" Forget the literal translation understand just the emotion What the voters in Malwa mean is that for 60 years

Ludhiana Firstpost The winds of change that gathered over Malwa have now turned into a hurricane The biggest indicator of popular mood in an election is the voter’s willingness to speak his mind express their poll preferences without fear or hesitation Speak to voters in any of the 14 districts of Malwa this is how the conversation goes: Akalis have ruined Punjab. cuss words What did Congress do for us in six decades. more colorful words We are already ruined What more harm can AAP possibly inflict AAP to its credit tapped into the anger For almost a year it ran an extensive campaign in

Hardcore Sikhs are angry with the Akalis because of a series of incidents of burning of their holy book But they do not trust the Congress Only option: AAP The 32 percent Dalits of the region the highest anywhere in India are in a flux moving away from both the Congress and the BSP And those angry with Akalis because of allegations of corruption and the prevalent drug culture want an option that will disrupt the existing system The Congress is seen as status—quoist a different shade of the same colour All these factors have combined to create an AAP wind in Malwa Will the AAP ride it to form the government The problem with AAP is that it is almost absent in Majha areas around Amritsar And it is just about catching up with the Congress in the Doaba region These two regions have 48 seats So unless it sweeps Malwa and wins more than 45 seats it may find itself short of the magic figure of 59 For the past two days Arvind Kejriwal has been camping in Majha trying to swing the few
