UN calls on corporate sector to help eliminate violence against women

Mr. Ban’s comments came during an address at UN headquarters in New York to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, which is observed annually on 25 November.“Today is a call to action – action to eliminate Violence against Women,” he said. “More and more people realize that gender-based violence is everybody’s problem and that everybody is responsible for stopping it.”This year’s International Day focuses on promoting leadership by the corporate sector in ending gender-based violence, a theme Mr. Ban emphasized in his meeting earlier today with a number of business partners. He also used the occasion to highlight his ‘UNiTE to End Violence against Women’ campaign.Launched by the Secretary-General in 2008, the campaign calls for all countries to put in place strong laws, action plans, preventive measures, data collection, and systematic efforts to address sexual violence by 2015. The campaign also includes a specific target of raising $100 million annually for the UN Trust Fund in Support of Actions to Eliminate Violence against Women by 2015, including through private sector contributions. Resources for the Fund – which gives grants to support innovative regional, local and national initiatives – fall drastically short of meeting the vast demand. Last month the Trust Fund completed its 14th grant-making cycle, delivering a total of $20.5 million for 26 projects in 33 countries and territories.Mr. Ban invited governmental and non-governmental organizations, as well as UN Country Teams, to apply for funding to support innovative projects that will help end violence against women.In a separate message for the International Day, the Secretary-General noted that the business community is playing an important role by developing projects and providing financial support to organizations working to end violence against women. “Yet much more needs to be done,” he stated. “In homes, schools and the office, in refugee camps and conflict situations, the corporate sector can help us to prevent the many forms of violence that women and girls continue to face.” One in every three women around the world has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused in her lifetime, according to UN statistics. Speaking at today’s event, the Executive Director of UN Women, Michelle Bachelet, said women and girls are at risk of violence throughout their lives and that violence is usually perpetrated against them by those closest to them.“The [UNiTE] campaign places the issue at the top of the UN agenda,” she later told a news conference. “The Secretary-General has made ending violence against women and girls one of his top priorities and it will be a major focus of UN Women. “This issue cannot be resolved without adequate resources. And that is why the Secretary-General through his UNiTE campaign has set the target of raising $100 million annually by 2015 for the UN Trust Fund to end violence against women,” she said.“The international community and the corporate sector can demonstrate their commitment to the cause by contributing to the Fund in order to create a reliable source of funding.”Yesterday the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) began a week of events to mark the International Day, including conferences, exhibitions, round tables and films highlighting the issue of violence against women and the efforts underway in different regions of the world to prevent it.“UNESCO is committed to protecting and promoting the rights and freedoms of women. One way of doing this is to ensure women’s full and equal participation in development and in peace-building processes at all levels,” said Irina Bokova, UNESCO’s Director General.“Violence against women is a violation of the rights and fundamental freedoms of women. It is unacceptable in any of the forms it takes – and there are many,” she added.In a related development, Cambodia has become the 100th country to ratify the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) – a key international treaty that allows women who have been denied their rights in their own countries to have their claims reviewed directly by a UN committee of independent experts. 23 November 2010The corporate sector must engage more closely in the fight against the global pandemic of violence against women and girls, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today, stressing the importance role of business leaders in eliminating the scourge. read more

Tesla recalling all Model S sedans to inspect seat belts after report

Tesla recalling all Model S sedans to inspect seat belts after report of a failure DETROIT – Tesla Motors is recalling its entire fleet of Model S sedans to check their front seat belts after one passenger’s seat belt became disconnected.The recall — the company’s largest ever — involves 90,000 cars worldwide. Tesla sent an email Friday to affected customers.Tesla’s other vehicles, the Model X SUV and the Roadster, aren’t affected. Seat belts in the back seat of the Model S also aren’t affected.About two weeks ago, Tesla said, a customer in Europe reported that her seat belt disconnected when she turned to talk to rear passengers. The woman was not injured and her car has been repaired.Palo Alto, California-based Tesla believes the seat belt anchors weren’t properly bolted together in that case. The company has inspected 3,000 other Model S sedans and hasn’t found a problem, but it wants to inspect all seat belts to make sure.Tesla owners are being asked to schedule a visit to a Tesla service centre for an inspection. Around 83 per cent of Tesla owners are within a 25-minute drive of the company’s 125 service centres worldwide, the company said. Tesla may send mobile teams to customers who are far from a service centre.Tesla has recalled the Model S several times before. Most recently, in January 2014, it updated some cars’ software to prevent connector adapters from overheating while the car is charging. But this is Tesla’s largest recall to date.Tesla stressed that the recall was voluntary and not requested by federal regulators. The company said it has informed government agencies in the U.S., Europe, China and elsewhere.Tesla said the recall wasn’t expected to have a material impact on its earnings. Tesla shares fell $6.09, or 2.8 per cent, to $215.71 following the announcement. by Dee-Ann Durbin, The Associated Press Posted Nov 20, 2015 10:07 am MDT Last Updated Nov 20, 2015 at 11:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this Sept. 15, 2015 file photo, a Tesla Model S is on display on the first press day of the Frankfurt Auto Show IAA in Frankfurt, Germany.

Polish FINAL 2015 Kielce – Plock 20

Polish Vive Targi Kielce are on the way of defending the crown in the domestic Championship. Talant Dujshebaev boys won the second match against Wisla Plock 25:16 staying only a step to the end of series…Vive Tauron Kielce – Orlen Wisła Płock 25:16 (11:10)Vive Tauron: Sego – Grabarczyk, Jurecki 2, Tkaczyk 3, Reichmann 3, Chrapkowski 1, Aguinagalde 3, Bielecki 3, Jachlewski 1, Strlek 2, Lijewski 4, Buntić 2, Musa 1, Zorman, Cupić.Orlen Wisła: Wichary, Morawski –  Kwiatkowski, Daszek 3, Racotea 9, Tioumentsev 1, Wiśniewski, Skibiński, Ghionea, Syprzak 1, Moryń, Zelenović 1, Montoro 1.………………………The first match of the Polish championship final was won by Vive Tauron Kielce. Kielce team beat at home Orlen Wisła Płock 31:26. However, for the first 45 minutes more or less, it looked that – even without a couple of players – weakened Wisła is able to win the game. On the other hand, Kielce played very badly – the amount of mistakes was unbelievable. Even when they manage to steal the ball due to the good defending, they couldn’t hit the net. The terrifically playing Corrales kepy denying Kielce players ball after ball. He saved among other things a couple of fastbreak attempts. On the other side of the court Sławomir Szmal also was performing well and was one of the best players of his team. For almost whole first half Płock was on the lead while Kielce only managed to equalize a few times.But eventually, Polish champions made use of Wisła’s mistakes, took their first lead in 28. Minute, and left the court leading by two (13:11). In the second half the goalkeepers still had some say in the game, which still was quite tight by the way. The mistakes on both sides also had some say. Kielce couldn’t figure out how to stop Syprzak while Płock kept wasting their chances such as penalty throws or rebounds.Crucial time arrived 10 minutes before the final whistle – Kielce got 4 goals ahead (25:21) and didn’t lose it until the very end. They even were given a chance for one more penalty throw after Corrales fouled running Jachlewski outside 6 meter area one second before the final whistle. Wisła’s goalkeeper was given a red card and Aginagalde scored a penalty goal making the final result 31:26.TEXT: MARTYNA USNARSKA ← Previous Story Come to Prešov: 7th Sarius Cup opens handball doors!

Inmates in Irish prisons will soon have access to ecigarettes

first_img Image: e-cigarette image via Shutterstock 33 Comments http://jrnl.ie/3257518 9,986 Views By Michelle Hennessy Feb 26th 2017, 7:00 AM Short URL Sunday 26 Feb 2017, 7:00 AM Image: e-cigarette image via Shutterstock Inmates in Irish prisons will soon have access to e-cigarettes A new smoking policy for the prison service is currently being finalised. INMATES IN IRISH prisons who are trying to quit smoking will soon have access to electronic cigarettes.In a recent court case, the barrister for a defendant complained to the judge that the man had been advised for health reasons to stop smoking, but e-cigarettes could not be sent in because of a “procurement problem”.A spokesperson for the Irish Prison Service told TheJournal.ie that these devices are not currently available at present, but their availability does form part of a new smoking policy that is being finalised.E-cigarettes were last year made available in every prison shop in the UK, ahead of the phased roll-out of a complete ban on smoking in English and Welsh jails. The devices are also available in a number of states in the US, where traditional cigarettes are prohibited in most prisons and jails.The New York Times reported in 2014 that county sheriffs said there was a reduction in violence in jails after the introduction of e-cigarettes. “The thing I like about it is it controls the guy,” one sheriff said. “We had four or five fights last week. One guy who’d had a fight asked for an e-cigarette and it calmed him down. It’s not meant to help inmates, it’s meant to help my guys.”Irish inmates do not have a right to smoke in prison, but they can be granted permission to do so by the governor. Even with permission, smoking is restricted to certain areas like the prisoner’s room or outside areas.“We’re currently looking at testing the device from a security point of view. We have to make sure that it can’t be used to smoke anything other than the vapour,” the prison service spokesperson explained.They will be made available on a very restricted basis from the tuck shop – so they won’t be able to get people to bring them in for them. It will be an approved device with approved capsules.They said they expected the new policy to be in place “in the near future”.Read: Prisoner parenting course aims to prevent mothers and fathers from reoffending>Read: Solicitor questioned after suspected cocaine found in his wallet in Mountjoy prison> Share15 Tweet Email1 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Is Vancouvers Arnold Park at risk

first_imgWhile the average person might experience Arnold Park as something of a backdrop during a walk or ride along the Burnt Bridge Creek Trail, West Minnehaha resident Peter Bracchi knows his neighborhood park well. But he’s both frustrated by and worried about the homeless camps that have cropped up in the bushes in recent years.Bracchi has been actively engaging with Vancouver officials and department heads, trying to bring more attention to the issue of homeless people camping in Arnold Park.“I’d rather have the police take care of a deadly crime any day of the week than be out protecting the environment, but the environment doesn’t know how to dial 911,” he said.In the last couple years Bracchi has watched a number of homeless camps pop up. Typically built away from the trail and tucked into the trees, most of them seem to be built for the long haul. Tents are attached to tarps, functioning like vestibules. Bikes, cookery and sometimes carts are strewn nearby. Some camps are camouflaged by branches or vines.Bracchi said some campers leave much less trash than others, but in his mind that doesn’t matter. He reports them all.“When things are damaging the environment I have to treat people the same,” he said.Then there’s the matter of the campers, whom he also worries about. Among other things, he worries about them drinking the water of Burnt Bridge Creek, which has a history of fecal coliform bacteria, and their difficulty in getting medical attention should they need it.last_img read more

Man taking selfie among 7 killed in Iran storms

first_imgA man taking a selfie after an Iranian dam burst was among at least seven people killed as floods, avalanches and dust storms gripped the country, state media reported Saturday.The 40-year-old was swept away while taking the photograph beside a river swollen by the breach of the earthen dam near the southeastern city of Jiroft, a Red Crescent official told the official IRNA news agency.His body has yet to be recovered.The dam burst flooded parts of Jiroft, damaging dozens of homes.A second man was killed in a flash flood in the southwestern province of Bushehr.The torrential rain caused flooding across the south, from Khuzestan province on the Iraqi border to Sistan-Baluchistan province on the border with Pakistan.Thousands fled villages downstream from dams fearing collapses like that in Jiroft.In the north, at least five people have been killed in avalanches over the past two weeks as up to two metres (more than six feet) of snow fell in the Zagros and Alborz mountains.Hundreds of villages were cut off in the provinces of Kurdistan, East Azerbaijan and Gilan.Even as downpours gripped much of the south, residents of some areas near the Iraqi border were praying for rain as some of the worst dust storms in years sent hundreds to hospital with respiratory problems.Photographs shared on social media showed cars, kitchens and furniture caked in thick dust beneath an orange sky.The dust level in the air was 18 times the normal levels, officials in Khuzestan province said.Long power cuts hit the cities of Ahvaz, Khoramshahr and Abadan as the combination of the dust and up to 98 percent humidity played havoc with the electricity grid.In Ahvaz, residents held demonstrations calling for government assistance. Several artists and celebrities launched a solidarity campaign on social media.Some 50 members of parliament have also written to President Hassan Rouhani in support of the campaign.Freak weather has swept though much of the Gulf, normally renowned for its deserts and searing heat. Snow fell in the hills of the United Arab Emirates as high winds forced the cancellation of a stage of cycling’s Tour of Dubai.This week torrential train disrupted every day of the Qatar Open women’s tennis tournament.The seasonal dust storms in southwest Iran have been intensifying for years as prolonged drought has triggered increasing desertification, not just in Iran but also in neighbouring Iraq and in Saudi Arabia beyond.Khuzestan province hosts many of Iran’s largest oil fields but its large ethnic Arab community has long complained that the government has not invested enough in infrastructure or measures to tackle chronic air pollution.last_img read more

Housing Professionals Focus on SingleFamily Rental Market

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, journal, News, REO, Secondary Market, Servicing This week an array of housing and mortgage professionals are assembling at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee, as the 2018 Five Star Single-Family Rental Summit kicks off. The three-day event began Monday evening with an opening night reception at the hotel’s scenic Bridge bar before launching into a full lineup of curriculum on Tuesday morning.According to CoreLogic data released in February, single-family rental vacancy rates are declining and prices are on the upswing. In fact, CoreLogic Chief Economist Dr. Frank Nothaft reported that SFR rental prices have grown “nearly 3 percentage points faster per year than other consumer prices.” Clearly, this is a segment of the market that shouldn’t be overlooked, and the Single-Family Rental Summit is a nexus for experts and interested professionals to meet and collaborate on strategies to take SFR to the next level in 2018 and beyond.“From the emergence of institutional investors to the entrance of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into the market, an increased recognition for the SFR asset class results in new challenges and opportunities for those willing to capitalize on their promise,” said Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado. “In many respects, this class of investors provides a stepping stone on the way to homeownership.”The Single-Family Rental Summit’s curriculum is divided into three broad subject areas, with panels and keynote speakers providing deeper, more granular looks at each topic. Tuesday’s curriculum is split between the “Acquisition & Disposition Session” from 9:00 a.m. until noon, and the “Property Management Session” picking up after lunch and running from 12:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.The Acquisition and Disposition Session will explore topics such as shaping your rental portfolio with the long-term in mind, the crucial importance of accurate valuation, shaping an effective disposition strategy, and tech innovations that can help provide useful market intelligence.During the Property Management, subject matter experts will discuss how to reduce costs, dealing with local municipalities, the pros and cons of outsourcing property management, and tech advances in portfolio management.Financing will the focus of the day on Wednesday, with the Summit’s activities starting again at 9:00 a.m. with a look at due diligence in the single-family rental space. From there, panel topics will include non-traditional financing options, choosing the right loan product for your portfolio, and how fintech could reshape the rental market.Star Sponsors for the event include Alacrity Services, Auction.com, IRA Services Trust, PointCentral, US Best Repair, Service, and Xactware. Corporate sponsors include 5 Arch Lending, A10 Capital, Angel Oak Prime Bridge, Appraisal Nation, Arcana Insurance Services, Civic Financial Services, CoreVest Finance, Finance of America Commercial, Fund That Flip, Global Strategic Business Process Solutions, Home Depot Renovation Services, Homee, LendingOne, The Mahoney Group, MidAtlantic IRA, National Tax Search, National Tenant Network, National Real Estate Insurance Group, OwnAmerica, Patch of Land, PeerStreet, The PIP Group, RCN Capital, realprotect, RentFax, Residential Assisted Living Academy, Roofstock, SGF Contracting Services, TaskEasy, Think Realty, and Westcor Investor Services.For more information about the Five Star Single-Family Rental Summit, click here.
