SecretaryGeneral welcomes upcoming conference of Ivorian parties

The meeting Monday with the Ivorian groups is to precede a summit of the 15-member union of West African nations, scheduled to start on Tuesday.A UN spokesman said in a statement the Secretary-General “encourages all Ivorian parties and their leaders to cooperate with ECOWAS on this important initiative and to ensure a successful outcome of the meetings in Accra.””The Secretary-General hopes that the meetings will focus on reaching agreement on a calendar for the implementation of the key provisions of the Linas-Marcoussis Agreement, in particular on the early disarmament, demobilization and reintegration of the armed groups and the restoration of State authority throughout the country,” the statement said. The Linas-Marcoussis Agreement, signed at Linas-Marcoussis, France, on 24 January, by the main political parties and rebel groups, is aimed at putting an end to the political crisis and civil unrest nearing civil war that has engulfed Côte d’Ivoire since 19 September 2002. It calls on the Government, rebels and political opposition to share power in a transitional government until elections in 2005.The rebel Forces Nouvelles walked out of the Government of National Reconciliation in September.Mr. Annan last month expressed his “deep concern” over the actions taken by the Forces Nouvelles and urged the group to re-join the Government of National Reconciliation. read more

Cooperation among western Mediterranean countries will improve security Annan says

“The development of common strategies when faced with globalized exchanges will have a positive impact on the growth and stability of the region,” he said in a message read to a summit of western Mediterranean countries by the UN resident coordinator in Tunisia, Ariel Francais.”In this context, it is important that the European side continue to support efforts by the Maghreb countries to achieve economic integration and cooperation. The manner in which migration is managed will also influence regional security and stability. That’s why I’m pleased with your willingness to promote a global, balanced and coordinated approach for human exchanges and migration.”Mr. Annan urged the Arab Maghreb countries to make their regional integration concrete and to formulate common objectives with a view to establishing a partnership with their European neighbours, he said. read more

Annan sends seasoned envoy to TimorLeste following mob violence

P>Two UN police officers were among those injured in the violence that began when army elements launched an attack on national police headquarters in Dili, the capital. After an hour, UN police and military advisers negotiated a cease fire that was agreed to on the condition the police surrender their weapons and leave unarmed. Condemning the attack, the UN office in Timor-Leste (UNOTIL) said soldiers opened fire as unarmed police were being escorted out. UN personnel evacuated the wounded to the mission, and the critically injured were transferred to Dili National Hospital. UN personnel rescued 62 other police officers who now being sheltered at the UN compound. Concerned at the violence, which began last month when five people were killed and 60 injured in clashes after the dismissal of 594 soldiers – a third of the total armed forces – Mr. Annan today telephoned Timor-Leste and regional leaders, who have committed to send forces to help restore stability, a UN spokesman said. The Secretary-General spoke with Timorese President Xanana Gusmão and Prime Minister Mari Alkatiri as well as Prime Ministers John Howard of Australia and Abdullah Badawi of Malaysia. He is also consulting with the governments of New Zealand and Portugal, the former colonial power. “In view of the deteriorating security and complex political situation, the Secretary-General has decided to send Ian Martin, head of the UN Human Rights Mission in Nepal, to Dili to assess the situation first hand,” the spokesman said. Mr. Martin was Mr. Annan’s Special Representative in East Timor in 1999, as it was called then, when it voted for independence from Indonesia, which occupied the country after Portugal left in 1974. Meanwhile, the Security Council today issued a presidential statement welcoming the Secretary-General’s initiatives, voicing deep concern at developments in Timor-Leste, recognizing the urgency of the deteriorating situation and condemning the violence.“The Security Council urges the Government of Timor-Leste to take all necessary steps to end the violence with due respect for human rights and to restore a secure and stable environment,” said Basile Ikouebe of the Republic of the Congo, which holds the Council’s rotating presidency.In its statement, the Council also acknowledged the request made by the Government of Timor-Leste to the Governments of Portugal, Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia to dispatch defence and security forces under bilateral arrangements.“The Security Council welcomes the positive responses made by the governments concerned and fully supports their deployment of defence and security forces to urgently assist Timor-Leste in restoring and maintaining security,” its President said, looking forward to close cooperation between those forces and UNOTIL. read more

Ryan Riga Greg Greve considered bookends in Ohio State baseball rotation

Then-sophomore pitcher Ryan Riga throws a pitch during a game against Oregon May 11 at Bill Davis Stadium. OSU lost, 3-1.Courtesy of OSU Athletics Then-sophomore pitcher Greg Greve (32) fires a pitch during a game against Minnesota April 8, 2012, at Bill Davis Stadium. OSU won, 4-1.Courtesy of OSU AthleticsDespite an influx of youth on the Ohio State baseball team, leadership is a likely necessity if the Buckeyes have dreams to be considered among the nation’s best. Although the team is less than three weeks into its regular season, the leaders on the pitching staff have already begun to emerge.Senior captain Greg Greve, and junior Ryan Riga have established themselves as the starting 1-2 punch for the Buckeyes on the mound. They make up a small portion of the pitching staff with collegiate experience, though.“It puts expectations on our roles. We have to show the young guys the ropes,” Greve said.A corps of talented freshmen and sophomores outweigh the upperclassmen in numbers, but coach Greg Beals said he is confident going into weekend trips knowing he is sending Greve and Riga out to start games.“I consider them bookends,” Beals said. “You got Greve going out first (on the weekend), Riga going out second … so our young guys are bookended a little bit.”Beals said he does not have a problem with sending any of the freshmen out to throw big innings, but Greve’s and Riga’s performances thus far have yet to warrant that.Neither were regular starters last year, but both have starting experience. Greve, a right-hander, started 20 games combined during his freshman and sophomore campaigns before moving to the bullpen last year, where he lowered his ERA to a career-best 3.65. Riga, a left-hander, began his collegiate career at Wabash Valley College, where he went 9-3 as a freshman and posted a 2.77 ERA. He improved as a sophomore during his first season with the Buckeyes in 2013, getting his ERA down to 2.14 in 29 relief appearances.With none of the starting rotation returning this season, both pitchers knew it would be their time to step up.“Last year the (pitching) staff set the tone for the team,” Riga said. “We’re trying to do the same to accomplish our goals and make it to the national tournament.”Greve started on opening day for the Buckeyes against reigning Big East Tournament Champion Connecticut. In the weeks leading up to that first game, he had no idea he would be the day one starter for the team, but embraced the role.Things looked shaky to start, with the Huskies earning two runs off him to begin the first inning.“Opening day showed that I was excited and nervous,” Greve said. “After the first inning, I went into the dugout and took some deep breaths and talked to my teammates to just help me relax.”Getting calmed down by his teammates appeared to pay dividends, as he subsequently pitched five strong innings, allowing only two baserunners and retiring 11 batters in a row at one point. The Buckeye offense tallied eight runs to earn him the win.Riga started against Auburn in the second game of the season and pitched for six innings, giving up only four hits while not allowing any runs. His effort against the Tigers earned him the honor of being named a Big Ten Co-Pitcher of the week. He said the award wasn’t important, though.“It doesn’t mean much to me,” Riga said. “I’m just trying to leave games with a lead and help the team win as many games as I can.”The second weekend of play didn’t see Greve and Riga, but Greve said he was glad the team could generate enough offense to win even if the starters struggled.“It’s a great feeling knowing our offense can come back and get runs even if we have a bad day,” Greve said. “Our job is to go out and keep it close for them.”As the freshmen and sophomore relievers continue to develop, Beals said he knows Greve and Riga can provide them with someone to look up to and follow.“They have the right leadership to prepare the (young) guys to be successful,” Beals said.The Buckeyes (5-2) have set the tone early, just as they had hoped to do, Riga said.“We had a big emphasis on the beginning of the year,” Riga said. “We focused on getting a good start and are happy with how it’s been.”Riga and Greve know there is much more to be done, though, and that the team has to keep winning to achieve their main goal.“We want to represent Ohio State in the national tournament,” Greve said. “We have worked our butts off for this all winter. All I want to do is help the team win.”The Buckeyes are scheduled to play Pittsburgh Friday in the Keith LeClair Classic in Greenville, N.C. First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. read more

Sony Xperia LT28AT leaked 46inch 720p reality display plus 13MP camera

first_imgNow that Sony is in the driver’s seat of its smartphone business, it looks like they’re ready to make a splash in 2012. The Xperia Nozomi LT26i leaked last month looked like a pretty impressive phone, and it now appears that it’ll have some company: the LT28AT.The newest Xperia showed up on the Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group), where it appears that the LT28AT has already been certified. In addition to spilling the beans about its Bluetooth capabilities, a handful of additional details are revealed in the description. The LT28AT will sport a 4.55-inch 720×1280 pixel Reality Display, a 13 megapixel rear camera and 720P-capable front-facing camera. Dual-band 802.11 N Wi-Fi is supported, as are LTE, HSPA, and TD-SCDMA — which ensures that LT28AT play nicely with China’s cellular networks.It’s also known that the Sony LT28AT is heading for the U.S., where it’ll ride on AT&T’s network. Horsepower isn’t mentioned in the Bluetooth SIG posting, but some sources are reporting that it’ll run a dual-core chip clocked at 1.5GHz — just like the Nozomi LT26i.At this point, no images have leaked — at least not of the phone itself (that’s the Xperia Arc S in the cropped shot above). Photos shot with the LT28AT’s 13MP rear camera have surfaced on Picasa, however, and the quality appears to be quite good.Though a specific version isn’t mentioned, the LT28AT is said to be running Android, like the other phones in the Xperia line-up. With ICS updates on the way early next year, you’d certainly expect a new model from Sony to be launching with Android 4.0 if it’s released in the same timeframe.More at BGR and Xperia Bloglast_img read more

Life death and rock nroll 40 years of Ireland captured in photos

first_imgLife, death and rock n’roll: 40 years of Ireland captured in photos Photographer Eric Luke’s book is nominated in the Irish Book Awards. 35,069 Views THE CHANGING FACES of Ireland are captured and examined in Eric Luke’s new photography collection Looking Back, which brings us images of Irish life across four decades.Dublin-born Luke joined the Irish Press Group as a staff photographer in 1973, after a brief stint working in the darkrooms as a photographic printer.In 1990 he moved to the Irish Times and began covering major news and feature stories both at home and abroad, including World Cups, Olympic Games, and assignments in Somalia, Kenya, India, Sydney, Washington and London.He has won a World Press Photo News Award and PPAI Photographer of the Year during his long career. He’s now compiled some of his favourite photos of Ireland in Looking Back: The Changing Faces of Ireland, which is nominated in the Best Irish Published Book section of the Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards, sponsored by TheJournal.ie.Here, Luke has given our readers an insight into the background behind some of his best photos.Sam Greer’s Saddlers, Poolbeg Street Sam Greer’s Saddlers, Poolbeg Street from Looking Back The Changing Faces of Ireland by Eric Luke Source: Eric Luke“Right next door to our old Irish Press office on Poolbeg Street was the shop of Sam Greer, the last saddle and harness maker in Dublin. His grandfather, also Sam Greer, started the business in 1900. Horse owners from as far afield as the Aran Islands came to him for saddles, as the quality of his work was renowned. Greer’s saddles are still highly valued for their hand stitching and fine craftsmanship.“We would occasionally drop into him, and he would repair one of our leather camera bags, or make a new one from scratch if he had time.“A Sam Greer camera bag would last much longer than the camera it held! On hearing he was closing down, I asked if I could spend his last day of business with him, photographing him for the record. He kindly let me spend the day with him, and I watched as he hand-crafted his wonderful leather goods. Then he closed up shop, and another old business disappeared from the city.”Dom McClure’s Barber Shop Dom McClure’s Barbershop, Dalkey from Looking Back The Changing Faces of Ireland by Eric Luke:“Another wonderful institution that is now long gone – the local barbershop, Dom McClure’s in Castle Street, Dalkey. Growing up in the area, my mother would frog-march me to the barber’s for a short back and sides. This meant a short journey to Pip Connolly’s in Glasthule or McClure’s in Dalkey.“A plank would be set across the leather armrests of the solid wooden chair for a child to sit on. I never would have expected to be here thirty years later, photographing Dom before he closed up shop in the 1980s. This premises is still operating as a barber’s, now under new ownership, and the great Pip Connolly still holds court in Glasthule.”Francis Stuart The late Francis Stuart, laid out at his home in Fanore, Co.Clare. Source: Eric Luke“I was dispatched by the Irish Times to photograph artist Finola Graham at her home in County Clare in February 2000, as she had an exhibition due to be launched. On arrival, she told me that her husband, the writer Francis Stuart, had just died, at 97. I assisted in laying out the famous writer, and asked for permission to photograph him before the wake.“With the dominant light coming from a naked bulb dangling from the ceiling, and a backdrop of his books and personal effects, a set designer in the Abbey Theatre could not have produced a more dramatic backdrop for the artist’s exit. This was not the picture I had gone there to get, but I ended up recording a small piece of history in a small village. It was a far cry from the enormous funeral that followed.”Rory Gallagher“In the old Carlton cinema, opposite the Gresham Hotel in O’Connell Street, Dublin, the great blues guitarist Rory Gallagher took the stage in 1975. When Rory, on a tour of Ireland, appeared on stage, the hair (I had hair then) stood up on the back of my neck. I desperately attempted to follow him with my manual focus and manual exposure, as he charged around the stage.“Raising his guitar towards the ceiling, lost in a sea of long hair, his profile is iconic and unmistakable. The Carlton has greatly fallen from grace, now housing a bag shop on its ground floor.”President Hillery’s daughter The inauguration of President Hillery Source: Eric Luke“One of my earliest pictures for the Press group, and my first State occasion to photograph, was of the inauguration of President Patrick Hillery for his first term of office, in 1976.“A team of photographers was dispatched to Dublin Castle and, as the most junior, I was given what was deemed to be the poorest position. Following the ceremonial swearing in, I would see the procession enter the courtyard, before disappearing from view seconds later. I spotted the President’s daughter Vivienne popping her head out, and set the manual camera focus on where her head might pop out again. Grabbing three frames, in the middle one I got lucky. This turned out to be the picture of the day, the front page of the Evening Press.”Photos by Eric Luke. Looking Back: The Changing Faces of Ireland by Eric Luke, published by The O’Brien Press 2016, is available from all good bookshops now, priced €24.99.

Make your skin hair summer ready

first_imgHow far would you go to avoid the summer heat? With all the sweat and grime in the air, it seems impossible to pull off healthy hair and skin, that stays for a few hours outdoors. By exfoliating, radiating and going minimal can have some positive results in warm weather.Sangeeta Velaskar, Vice President and Head, Medical Services and R&D, Kaya Limited talks about how to keep your skin looking fresh, while TONI&GUY Global Hair Ambassador, Indira Schauwecker gives you tips and tricks on how to ace the minimalistic trend, debunks some common hair myths and recommends products so you can care for your mane better. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf* Prepare your skin: The most crucial step to getting any look right, is prepping your skin. You can begin with the quintessential need for hydration, it’s very important to drink lots of water to keep your skin healthy and glowing from the inside. * Exfoliate, circulate and radiate: Exfoliating your skin in the summer not only removes dead skin, but also improves blood circulation to your face. Use a mild exfoliating cleanser once or twice a week based on your skin type. Your mantra this summers should be ‘Exfoliate. Circulate. Radiate.’ to get that natural glow. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive* Go minimal: It is very important to moisturize your skin even in the summer, so instead of heavy duty creams that often leave your skin looking oily and slick, find a one-stop solution. Using a CC cream that gives you the perfect makeup finish but also provides sun protection and hydration, is the way to go. With a smooth and radiant finish aided by the CC Cream, your face becomes the perfect canvas for a minimalistic look. Light kohl around the eyes and a nude lipstick is all you need to get going. * Myth: Heat styling damages your hair: It is true that curling and flat irons can sometimes damage your hair because of the high temperature, but the real problem is the lack of protection for your hair against heat styling. Go for heat protection mist, before heat styling. Spray the product evenly over towel-dried hair and comb through. Top up in-between blow-drying and using straightening irons by spritzing over dry hair. Whether its super bouncy hair or beachy waves, you can have it all, without damage or breakage. * Myth: 100 strokes a day makes hair shinier: On the contrary, you’ll end up doing more damage to your hair. Instead of an overzealous exercise such as this, you can gently brush your hair with a few strokes a couple of times during the day. This will help stimulate the follicles, and distribute the natural oils across your hair.last_img read more

HandsOn With Apples New Maps for iPhone and iPad

first_imgimage credit: Mac RumorsWith the release of the latest version of its software for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, Apple has made a number of big changes to the way you use your mobile devices. One of the most notable has been to the Maps app – a go-to resource for iPhone-toting, road warrior entrepreneurs. Originally powered by Google technology, Maps has been redesigned to pull in data from a variety of sources, including popular navigation system maker TomTom and business review site Yelp.From 3-D visualizations to turn-by-turn directions, here’s a rundown of what you need to know about using Maps to get you where you’re going:The new look: The default view in Apple’s new Maps app is the same as before: A birds-eye view from above with basic two-dimensional visuals. It looks a lot like what you’re used to seeing from any variety of mobile or online mapping services, but it uses vector graphics, so it loads and moves much more smoothly than previous versions.Maps options display: As with previous versions of Maps, tapping the bottom right-hand corner of the map will peel back the screen and display new basic options. They’ll be familiar if you’ve used maps before. There’s Drop Pin, for instance, which lets you place a pin on the map and move it freely, using it as a start or destination marker. “Standard” is two-dimensional with a hand-drawn look while “Hybrid” displays scenery as satellite images with overlaid roads and other info. “Satellite,” as you might guess, is pure satellite imagery without annotations.Related: Guide to iOS 6: Everything you need to know about Apple’s new mobile operating system3-D aerial maps: The standard aerial maps look similar to what you’ve seen in the past, but have more icons for businesses and points of interested overlaid on them. They also load, pan and rotate much faster.On supported devices — the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 or better — you can activate a 3-D mode that renders buildings and other features that can be zoomed and rotated.Traffic information: You can turn traffic information on and off, just as in past versions. But now you’ll see icons indicating accidents and other traffic hazards. Turn-by-turn directions can use the traffic data to display accurate travel times and automatically reroute you around problems.Tap on a traffic accident or hazard icon in the new Maps and you’ll get a detailed account of what the problem is and where it’s located.Related: How to upgrade your iPhone or iPad to iOS 6Turn-by-turn directions: If you have an iPhone 4S or iPad 2 (or later) you can take advantage of the new Maps app’s full turn-by-turn directions. If you have an older device, you can still get directions but they won’t update automatically as you drive or feature voice prompts.Using turn-by-turn maps, you’ll be automatically alerted by voice-overs about accidents, hazards and more optimal routes. You can then choose if you want your device to calculate a new route.It should be noted that Maps has lost a couple of things now that Google is no longer involved. The first is Street View, or the ability to see what the area you’re looking at looks like from street level.
