27 September 2007The head of the United Nations body mandated to protect press freedom today condemned the latest murder of a journalist in Iraq, calling it “an unacceptable attack on the human rights of the people” in a country where over 150 media workers are reported to have been killed since the United States-led invasion in 2003. Jawad al-Daami, a well-known poet who worked on cultural and social programmes for the independent Cairo-based television channel Al-Baghdadia in Baghdad, was shot in the head in the south-western neighbourhood of Al-Qadissiya on Sunday. “There can be no excuse for the killing of writers and poets, and I call on the authorities of Iraq to do all in their power to stem this intolerable blood-letting,” UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura said in a statement. Mr. al-Daami, who had gone to Baghdad to attend a cultural conference, is the second employee of the channel to be killed in Iraq. So’oud Muzahim al-Shoumari, an Al-Baghdadia correspondent, was found dead in Baghdad’s southern district of Doura in April 2006, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ). The CPJ says that at least 112 journalists, not including Mr. al-Daami, and 40 media support staffers have been killed in Iraq since March 2003. Eighty-five percent of those killed were Iraqis. Mr. Matsuura has issued frequent condemnations of the murder of journalists around the world. read more


“Efforts to achieve a ban on the weaponization of outer space must continue so as to protect the space assets of all nations in the interests of international peace and security,” Jayantha Dhanapala, the Under-Secretary-General for Disarmament Affairs, said in his opening remarks to a panel discussion on “The Outer Space Treaty at Thirty Five” held at UN Headquarters in New York.The current international legal framework for outer space activities is comprised of five treaties, including the 1967 Outer Space Treaty. Among its provisions, the accord bans the orbiting and stationing of nuclear weapons or any other kinds of weapons of mass destruction. It also provides that the Moon and other celestial bodies shall be used exclusively for peaceful purposes, and prohibits the establishment of military bases, installations and fortifications, the testing of any kind of weapon and the conduct of military manoeuvres on celestial bodies.”The treaties have been successful so far in ensuring that weapon systems with strike capabilities remain de facto, if not de jure, banned from space,” Mr. Dhanapala said. “While the regime by itself does not guarantee the prevention of an arms race in outer space, it plays, however, a significant role in achieving that end. Yet, it is obvious that we must proceed beyond this.”Recent developments have increased concerns about the dangers weaponizing space and have led to various proposals to prevent this outcome, the Under-Secretary-General noted. Only the determination and unified will of the international community to strictly enforce the underlying principle of the Outer Space Treaty – that space is to be used “for the benefit and in the interests of all countries” – can prevent such a development, he said.”Deployment of weapons in space by one country will spur others to follow,” Mr. Dhanapala warned. “The resulting arms race would lead to incalculable consequences for development and human security and could very well deprive humanity of all the benefits of the peaceful use and exploration of space.” read more


The Building Rural Entrepreneurial Capacities: Trust and Opportunity Project will target at-risk groups such as women, indigenous peoples, Afro-Colombians, youth and families displaced by internal conflict, and will create mechanisms to improve food security and increase their incomes by as much as 31 per cent, the UN International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) said in a news release.“The Trust and Opportunity Project provides the Government of Colombia with an unprecedented opportunity to build peace and enhance social inclusion, and to reduce inequalities in the country,” said IFAD’s Associate Vice President, Kevin Cleaver, during a ceremony last week in Rome.He added, “The project introduces a number of innovations, including the use of mobile banking in remote rural areas, the establishment of a special fund to support youth enterprise development, and the piloting of new data-gathering technologies for monitoring project progress and impact.”To finance the $69 million project, IFAD has loaned $50 million to Colombia’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, while the Colombian Government will provide $5.76 million, and an additional $13.7 million will come from joint funding from project participants for savings mobilization, insurance and funding for microenterprises.In the Colombian countryside, some seven million people live below the poverty line and two million are considered to be extremely poor, according to IFAD. In addition, about 13 per cent of the population do not have sufficient incomes to meet their basic food needs, and approximately 3.6 million people have been displaced by internal conflict.Since 1981, the UN agency has contributed some $93 million to rural empowerment projects in Colombia. read more

What is going on between Huawei and the US? Huawei Samsung This comes after Samsung paused its release of the Galaxy Fold this spring. The $1,980 foldable phone was scheduled to go on sale in the US on April 26, but Samsung hit the brakes right before the phone’s launch due to numerous screen problems on review units. Samsung said a new release date for the phone will be announced in “the coming weeks.”The Mate X delay is just the latest challenge for Huawei, the world’s No. 1 telecom supplier and No. 2 phone manufacturer. In May, the US blacklisted networking gear from Huawei and President Donald Trump signed an executive order essentially banning the Chinese company due to national security concerns. As a result, some tech companies have cut ties with Huawei. Peng said the Mate X delay wasn’t due to the supply-chain issues, according to the Journal.The foldable phone was unlikely to launch in the US. In May, UK carriers Vodafone and EE said they were pulling the Mate X from their device lineups for their 5G network launches.center_img The Mate X was previously scheduled to go on sale this summer.

first_imgI must have driven passed Villa Oro a thousand times before I finally went in. Every time I passed the “Comida Taiwanesa” sign out front,my curiosity grew, until I finally gave it a try. Villa Oro’s owners market the restaurant as a Taiwanese tearoom, but I didn’t have any tea on my visit. I did have some amazing dumplings and rich beef noodle soup though.It’s one of very few of its kind in the country. At least, I haven’t had this kind of Taiwanese food anywhere else in Costa Rica.There was a great selection of different teas too. They would be the perfect accompaniment to one of their famous pineapple cakes, baked in-house, in the traditional Taiwanese style. I tried one and can see why they have earned such a loyal following. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Dessert comes last, right? Be patient, we’ll get to the desserts. (William Ayre / The Tico Times)There’s no print menu at Villa Oro and their offerings are very limited. Mayra, the sole waitress who’s been there since day one, was happy to explain the few options at our table. Although she is Costa Rican, she was able to describe the traditional Taiwanese dishes in great detail and even pronounced the names of dishes such as Niu Lo Mien and Lurou Fan like a real pro. There were five different plates to choose from on my visit, which I understand to be the norm. To start, we ordered the dumplings, which can be steamed or fried, with a filling of either pork or shrimp. We ordered steamed pork and absolutely loved it. It was served with a soy-based dipping sauce, as well as a house made, fermented hot sauce. The hot sauce tasted like it was spicy chilis mixed with some sort of black bean paste. It was different, for sure, but I enjoyed it. The dumplings at VIlla Oro (William Ayre / The Tico Times)The remaining four options are Niu Lo Mien and Lurou Fan, as previously mentioned, plus a chicken curry dish served with rice and a fried rice dish with pork, hard boiled egg and radish. Mayra told me the name of these last two, as well, but it sounded so foreign that I can’t even begin to guess how to write it. If you’re scared of the unpronounceable, maybe eat somewhere else.The owners, an older couple from Taiwan who have spent most of their lives in Costa Rica, are also the ones in the kitchen. As always, this ensures authentic recipes and it almost always means the food is prepared with love. I could taste the love even though I wasn’t personally able to talk with them. I’m not sure if they are shy or if they were busy working, but they seem to prefer staying confined to the kitchen in the back. Fine by me, everything that came out of there was great.My friend and I decided to try the Niu Lou Mien, which is a beef noodle soup that Mayra admits is the most popular of their five offerings. It had a very rich broth with hints of five spice and while the noodles were admittedly not homemade, their texture was damn close to it. The chunks of beef were fall-apart tender, only achieved through a long, slow cooking process. To add balance, a touch of freshness, and a bit of crunch; there was some bok choy and green onion to top it off. I am already craving my next bowl, though I would have preferred a hotter temperature for the broth. The Niu Lou Mien (William Ayre / The Tico Times)Lurou Fan, which I left for my next visit, is another different pork dish served on rice. According to my research, it’s also one of the greatest hits of Taiwanese cuisine.Now it’s time for dessert. The pineapple cake reminded me of shortbread and had a candied pineapple filling. These are famous all over Taiwan and Villa Oro is sharing that tradition with Costa Ricans who otherwise might have never been able to try one. These are sold individually, or can be boxed up nicely as a gift for someone at home. I recommend you do so.I wasn’t able to get the specific prices of each item. There were no menus to review and now that I think about it, I didn’t get a receipt of my purchase. But two bowls of beef noodle soup, an appetizer of pork dumplings to share, and no drinks came out to about 18,000 colones (bout $30). That’s not as cheap as similar restaurants in the center of San José, but it still seems very fair to me considering its location in Escazu. The food quality was great, with delicious flavors and acceptable portions and so, the price is justified.The garden view also helps.Villa Oro is located in what looks to have once been a private residence. Now, the front yard has been opened up to a grassy parking lot and a beautiful garden area.  I grabbed one of the two tables on the front patio and was able to enjoy looking out over the greenery, breathing fresh air while I enjoyed my meal. With summer weather just around the corner, I can see this becoming one of my spots to grab lunch and enjoy being outside while stuffing my face with exotic foods.Looking to getaway? Win a trip for 2 to Peru & Bolivia, Japan, Tanzania, or Mexico with Tourradar.There are more tables inside, but on my visit, none were occupied. Actually, when I first walked in, there was nobody at all, not even staff. It didn’t take long to get Mayra’s attention though. I imagine it could get hectic if they get busy, but that doesn’t seem to be a concern for them.Located along Ruta 105, one of Escazu’s main roads, Villa Oro can be found just north of Avenida 28, on the east side of the road.Villa Oro is open every day except for Mondays, from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. Reservations are not required. Cash and major credit cards are accepted. Private parking is available. Vegetarian options are not. Beer is the only type of alcohol being served. Search “Villa Oro” in Waze or Uber to arrive conveniently.William Ayre is a Canadian born chef and restaurateur who has spent the last half of his life doing business in Costa Rica, where he now considers to be home. Inspired by Anthony Bourdain, Ayre’s passion of experiencing different cultures through food has taken him to 35 different countries over five continents.

first_imgAssociated PressOSLO, Norway (AP) – Aung San Suu Kyi’s Nobel Peace Prize speech explored her views on the ideals of peace, the seeds of war, the bonds of our common humanity, and the rare power of kindness. Here are the highlights.POWER OF THE PEACE PRIZE“Often during my days of house arrest it felt as though I were no longer a part of the real world.” Winning the Nobel Peace Prize “made me real once again. It had drawn me back into the wider human community. And what was more important, the Nobel Prize had drawn the attention of the world to the struggle for democracy and human rights in Burma. We were not going to be forgotten.” Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates The difference between men and women when it comes to pain Comments   Share   Top Stories Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family IGNORING OTHERS’ SUFFERING FUELS WAR“The First World War represented a terrifying waste of youth and potential, a cruel squandering of the positive forces of our planet. … And for what? Nearly a century on, we have yet to find a satisfactory answer. Are we not still guilty, if to a less violent degree, of recklessness, of improvidence with regard to our future and our humanity? War is not the only arena where peace is done to death. Wherever suffering is ignored, there will be the seeds of conflict, for suffering degrades and embitters and enrages.WE LIVE IN AN ENLIGHTENED AGE“We are fortunate to be living in an age when social welfare and humanitarian assistance are recognized not only as desirable but necessary. I am fortunate to be living in an age when the fate of prisoners of conscience anywhere has become the concern of peoples everywhere, an age when democracy and human rights are widely, if not universally, accepted as the birthright of all.”PERFECT PEACE MUST BE OUR GOAL“Absolute peace in our world is an unattainable goal. But it is one towards which we must continue to journey, our eyes fixed on it as a traveler in a desert fixes his eyes on the one guiding star that will lead him to salvation. Even if we do not achieve perfect peace on earth, because perfect peace is not of this earth, common endeavors to gain peace will unite individuals and nations in trust and friendship and help to make our human community safer and kinder.” Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Sponsored Stories THE PEACEMAKING POWER OF KINDNESS“Of the sweets of adversity, and let me say that they are not numerous, I have found the sweetest, the most precious of all, is the lesson I learnt on the value of kindness. Every kindness I received, small or big, convinced me that there could never be enough of it in our world. To be kind is to respond with sensitivity and human warmth to the hopes and needs of others. Even the briefest touch of kindness can lighten a heavy heart. Kindness can change the lives of people.”IMAGINING A WORLD WITHOUT REFUGEES“Ultimately our aim should be to create a world free from the displaced, the homeless and the hopeless, a world of which each and every corner is a true sanctuary where the inhabitants will have the freedom and the capacity to live in peace. Every thought, every word, and every action that adds to the positive and the wholesome is a contribution to peace. Each and every one of us is capable of making such a contribution. Let us join hands to try to create a peaceful world where we can sleep in security and wake in happiness.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

first_imgAugust 01 , 2018 Opinion: Foretelling the Mexican mango season wind … You might also be interested in The Packaging Pitch: Why the museum of ice cream i … Opinion: Poland and Turkey have much in common wit … center_img By Fresh Produce Marketing founder Lisa CorkBack in 2015 when the USA replaced the food pyramid graphic, the fresh produce industry rejoiced. Released as part of ‘Dietary Guidelines for Americans’, the pyramid was gone and in its place was…a plate. Using the new plate icon, what to eat daily became simplified: make ½ the plate fruit/veg, ¼ the plate protein, ¼ the plate grains and add a small amount of dairy to the side. Easy-peasy.What worked about the plate diagram was its visual simplicity. It is not hard to imagine what is required to ensure 50% of every meal is filled with fruit and veg. Think of what you ate at your most recent meal. You may not know how many ‘servings’ or grams of a fruit or veg you ate, but I am sure you would be able to estimate what percentage of your total plate was fruit or veg. Was it 50% or more? Pat yourself on the back. Was it 50% or less? You’ve got some work to do.The half the plate concept does not require a kitchen scale or a measuring cup. It is a simple, visual icon that anyone can see, understand and embrace. It is a hugely positive tool for our industry.As the fresh produce industry, we are also in an enviable position about owning 50% of the plate. At the moment, there is no real argument against half the plate being fruit or veg. Yes, our industry has some contentious issues (chemicals, GMO, plastics, labour), but for the most part fruits and vegetables are seen as wholesome and good. This consensus definitely does not carry over to the other half of the plate!Back in March, I had a chance to attend SXSW as part of a group from PMA USA. SXSW is a thought leadership conference covering hundreds of topics and bringing in attendees and speakers from around the world. As part of attending various sessions within the food stream, one thing became very clear to me – there is huge debate about the other ‘half of the plate.’ And I mean huge debate!One of the SXSW sessions I sat in on was about plant based diets. This session had speakers from Memphis Meats (growing meat in vats using animal cells) and Beyond Meat (plant based meat patties). The gist of the session focussed on plant-based and vegan diets and showcased the various diets and meal delivery kits that made converting to a vegan life style easier.An example used was Beyoncé/Jay-Z’s investment into a diet plan called 22 Days. 22 Days focusses on providing meal kits and recipes to move people from consuming animal proteins to consuming a more plant-based diet. It includes foods like Beyond Meat’s plant based protein patties, grains and legumes. The mental analogy I formed in the session was – half the plate is fruit and veg and the other half of the plate is vegan and uses foods like grains and plant based proteins to replace meat.Just one hour after the plant-based protein session had concluded, I attended another food session. This one featured the developer and supporters of what is called the Whole 30 Food Plan. Within the Whole 30 plan, which is more like Paleo, the diet discourages legumes and grains and encourages more meat and plant consumption (e.g. vegetables). The belief is that legumes and grains create gut issues and diets with higher protein and fat are better for the body. In this session, my mental picture was more 75% of the plate had mainly veggies with an animal protein making up the other 25%.With these two contrasting mental pictures in mind, can you see where this column is heading? The good news for our industry is there is almost no debate about our ‘our half of the plate.’ But there is huge debate about the other half of the plate. What this says to me is we need to own our half proudly…and boldly. We need to continue to promote that whatever diet you follow, whatever the other half of your plate looks like, one half needs to be filled with fruits and vegetables.Being bold extends to your marketing and branding. If you are still using a grower name or farm name brand, I strongly believe now is the time to make a change – especially if you package your product in some way. There has never been a better time to create bold, clever names as a tool to get cut through and attention and promote fruit/veg’s ownership of half the plate. Bold branding is my specialty – contact me if I can help.Explore: https://www.choosemyplate.gov/dietary-guidelines for plate icon to be used as a graphic?

first_imgEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.  — Cam Newton stayed away from the nastiness around him, shrugged off a record-tying Giants comeback, and did what he does best: carry Carolina to victory.In a wild game that saw New York tie the score after trailing by 28 points, Newton threw five touchdown passes for the third time in five weeks. The Panthers remained perfect by outlasting the Giants 38-35 Sunday on Graham Gano’s 43-yard field goal as time expired.Making yet another strong statement for NFL Most Valuable Player honors, Newton led the Panthers (14-0) to their 18th straight regular-season victory. He has thrown for 19 touchdowns in the last five games and a career-best 33 in this so-far special season.It looked oh so easy when NFC South champion Carolina led 35-7 with 5:32 left in the third quarter. Then the Giants matched San Francisco’s 28-point rally — from the same score — against New Orleans in 1980.One big difference: The 49ers won that game in overtime, and the Giants (6-8) saw their playoff chances take a huge hit by falling short. They trail Washington by one game in the NFC East.Carolina visits Atlanta and hosts Tampa Bay to finish the schedule. All three previous NFL teams to reach 14-0 — Miami in 1972, New England in 2007 and Indianapolis in 2009 — made the Super Bowl. Only the Dolphins won the championship, though.The Panthers would secure home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs if Arizona loses Sunday night at Philadelphia. The 18 straight wins match the third-longest string in NFL history.The Giants tied it when Odell Beckham Jr., involved in a game-long helmet-smacking, shoving and jawing session with cornerback Josh Norman, got behind Norman for a 14-yard touchdown catch with 1:46 to go. Beckham had lost his composure several times as Norman was getting the best of him in their high-profile matchup. But he got free for a 40-yard catch and run that led to the tying TD.Then Newton calmly guided the Panthers 49 yards to the winning kick.Play ranged from chippy to nasty, particularly as the Panthers took every opportunity to bang around Beckham Jr. Beckham gave back, too, especially during one sequence when Norman crashed into him and Beckham wrestled Norman to the ground.Three times, a frustrated Beckham was penalized for roughness. Norman also drew a flag for hitting Beckham in the helmet. And after his tying score, Beckham appeared to taunt Norman before he ran to midfield in celebration.Meanwhile, Newton was staying cool.He showed off his sprinting skills, and his toughness, on a 47-yard gain to set up Carolina’s first touchdown. The quarterback surged away from pursuers, then was slammed as he stepped out of bounds by rookie safety Landon Collins — Alabama hitting Auburn — for a late-hit penalty that began all maliciousness.Ted Ginn Jr. caught a 3-yarder to make it 7-0. He added a 14-yard TD catch in the third quarter.Newton also took a helmet to the right shoulder when passing in the second period and came to the sideline in obvious pain. But he was back on the field moments later after Rashad Jennings’ fumble was forced and recovered by Charles Tillman.
