Khmer Rouge brother number two Nuon Chea dies Cambodia court

first_imgPhnom Penh: Khmer Rouge ‘brother number two’ Nuon Chea died Sunday aged 93, a spokesman for the Cambodia tribunal where he was convicted of genocide and crimes against humanity said. “We can confirm that defendant Nuon Chea… passed away this evening on 4 August 2019 at Khmer Soviet Friendship hospital,” said Neth Pheaktra, spokesman for the tribunal. The cause of his death was not given. The reign of terror led by “Brother Number 1” Pol Pot left some two million Cambodians dead from overwork, starvation and mass executions from 1975 to 1979. But Nuon Chea, considered the Khmer Rouge’s chief ideologue, was not arrested until 2007.

The UN-backed court sentenced him to life in prison last year after he was found guilty of genocide against the ethnic Vietnamese and Cham Muslim minority group. His lawyers had planned to appeal. Nuon Chea and the sole surviving defendant on trial, Khieu Samphan, were previously handed life sentences in 2014 over the forced evacuation of Phnom Penh in 1975, when Khmer Rouge troops drove the population of the capital into the countryside.

The hybrid court, which uses a mix of Cambodian and international law, was created with UN backing in 2006 to try senior Khmer Rouge leaders. It has convicted only three people so far and cost more than 300 million. Former Khmer Rouge foreign minister Ieng Sary and his wife died without facing justice, while Pol Pot passed away in 1998. Prime Minister Hun Sen, a former Khmer Rouge cadre, has warned against future investigations, claiming it would plunge the country into chaos. Tribunal watchers believe that last year’s ruling will be the final verdict, raising questions about the court’s legacy in a country where many are too young to remember the Khmer Rouge. Youk Chhang, head of the country’s pre-eminent Khmer Rouge archive, the Documentation Centre of Cambodia, said Nuon Chea was “born innocent but he committed sin and so he died with sin”.last_img read more

Unsold spectrum resulted in Rs 54 lakh cr losses BFI

first_imgNew Delhi: Radiowaves unsold in past auctions cost India an estimated Rs 5.4 lakh crores in economic losses, claimed industry body Broadband India Forum, urging the government to ensure adequacy and “reasonable” rates for upcoming 5G auction. BIF said the reserve price of 5G spectrum is “too high”, works out to be 4 times higher than other countries and “needs urgent revision”. Spectrum price in India is, by far, the single most important factor in determining the fate of an auction, its success or failure, BIF said, adding prices should trigger maximum sale and hence optimal realisation of direct and indirect benefits, and not be driven by short-term financial gains. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe comments of the industry body comes ahead of a crucial meeting of Digital Communications Commission later this week, which will finalise various modalities of spectrum auction and price of radiowaves. The auction is expected to take place in the current financial year. “Every unsuccessful mobile spectrum auction has severe implications not only in terms of spectrum remaining unsold but also in terms of valuable economic benefit lost as a result of this unsold spectrum remaining idle,” Broadband India Forum (BIF) said in a statement. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostIn the last auctions held in October 2016, over 1300 MHz of radio spectrum (or 59 per cent) remained unsold, leading to significant unrealised potential, it said. Explaining the math behind Rs 5.4 lakh crore economic loss it has estimated, BIF said that only about 60 per cent of the spectrum put up for auction, since 2010, has been sold and went on to link this to the financial impact of unsold spectrum. “Adopting a conservative approach, India had 762 million active mobile connections in 2016, served by over 3800 MHz of spectrum allocated to licensees. This indicates that the idle spectrum with government could enable connectivity for roughly 278 million additional active connections,” it said, adding that extra connections correspond to 21 per cent of the population. “If 10 per cent increase in tele-density leads to an increase of 1.9 per cent in GDP…the financial cost of this idle spectrum can then be estimated to be Rs 5.40 lakh crores, or over 160 per cent of the financial benefit of Rs 3.30 lakh crores from all spectrum auctions so far,” it said. Due to the high reserve prices in past auctions, there is an accumulated unsold spectrum, related financial cost, and consumers too have lost out on quality of services, it lamented. “…the true purpose of setting a reserve price for spectrum is to deter non-serious players from participating in the auction, but at the same time, ensuring a rational price point be offered, so as to enable discovering a vibrant realisation of the true market price, and successful participation from committed companies. This purpose should not get misled in the pursuit of short-term financial gains,” TV Ramachandran, President, Broadband India Forum said. Moreover, the quantum of 5G spectrum that has been allocated for the upcoming auctions is not enough for a country of India size and density, BIF said. “The amount of spectrum being made available for 5G in India is 175 MHz, which is almost half of the US. Additionally, the present 5G reserve price (3.5 GHz band) at Rs 492 crore/MHz is also significantly in deviation with international norms,” BIF said, adding that these problems pose a significant challenge to 5G uptake in the country.last_img read more

Investment fund for auto sector gets fiveyear extension from Ottawa

by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 4, 2013 6:34 pm MDT OAKVILLE, Ont. – Ottawa has renewed the $250 million investment fund that puts cash aside for car companies and their suppliers, part of a five-year plan to help keep the auto manufacturing industry thriving in Canada.Prime Minister Stephen Harper, speaking at the Ford plant in Oakville, Ont. on Friday, said the Automotive Innovation Fund has helped Canada’s auto sector become more innovative, agile and competitive.“The rebound of our auto sector in this country is one of Canada’s biggest economic and industrial success stories of the last five years,” said Harper, while cautioning the “global economy remains troubled.”“Therefore I’m pleased to announce today that our government will make another significant five-year investment in the automotive innovation fund.”The fund, established in the 2008 federal budget, requires companies to invest their own money to access government cash, which must be paid back in full. Only large-scale research and development projects valued at more than $75 million are considered.Ford, Canadian auto parts maker Magna International (TSX:MG) and Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada are among the companies that have drawn money from the fund for projects.Harper noted the automotive industry — “the engine of southern Ontario’s manufacturing economy” — was hit especially hard during the 2008-9 recession.“For a while it seemed like its very existence was in real danger.”Canadian Auto Workers union president Ken Lewenza, who attended the announcement, said he’d like to see conditions added to the funding, specifically for “employment levels to remain consistently high, if not enhanced.”Lewenza said the loan agreements “ought to have a commitment to jobs because the last time the Ford Motor Co. got a huge boost at this Oakville facility it coincided with significant job loss in Windsor.”The five-year renewal to the innovation fund comes after a controversial government bailout of the auto industry — including billions to help General Motors and Chrysler get through court-supervised restructurings.The CAW complained last month when GM Canada said it will shift production of the Chevrolet Camaro from Oshawa, Ont., east of Toronto to a plant in Michigan in 2015. The CAW says the move will cost 1,000 jobs at the Oshawa complex.Ontario has seen traditional Detroit Three carmakers — GM, Ford and Chrysler — cut tens of thousands of jobs in the last decade as their parent companies restructured in the United States.In 2011, Ford closed its St. Thomas, Ont., while investing in plants in the U.S.Canada faces growing competition from both the U.S. and Mexico, where labour costs are cheaper for both automakers and auto parts manufacturers, partly due to the strength of the loonie. Some U.S. states have also launched government grants and other financial assistance programs to drive manufacturing into their regions.The federal and Ontario governments contributed $10.6 billion to the U.S. government’s bailout of General Motors during the recession. GM has repaid the loans but the Canadian governments continue to own shares received for some of the funding provided to keep the company from going out of business in 2009.When asked about the renewal in the context of the GM move, Harper defended the fund.“What we have invested from taxpayer dollars has been paid back many, many times to the taxpayer and will continue to be paid many, many times to the taxpayer back in terms of direct repayments but also economic activity,” he said.“These have been very good investments for Canada.”“Our objective remains to sell those shares in a way that … attempts to maximize the value for the Canadian taxpayer,” he added.The renewal of the fund mark a further recognition of the importance of the domestic auto sector, said Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers Association president Mark Nantais in a statement.“Canada’s auto industry is better positioned to compete and win new investment which will help to drive the economy and create more opportunities for Canadians,” he said.

Four million have now fled Venezuela UN ramps up aid to children

© UNICEF/VelasquezAt a school on the outskirts of Caracas, Venezuela, a UNICEF representative speaks to a mother who brought her young daughter for nutrition screening. (3 June 2019)Child health ‘grim’ and getting worse: UNICEFFor many of those who have remained in Venezuela, the situation is dire, and around a third of children in the country need help accessing basic nutrition, health and education services, the UN Children’s Fund, UNICEF, said on Friday.Children’s needs must always remain above politics Paloma Escudero, UNICEF Director of CommunicationThe UN agency announced that it has ramped up aid since the beginning of the year, in the form of 55 tons of health supplies distributed to 25 hospitals in the most affected states of Caracas, Miranda, Zulia, Bolivar and Táchira. They include midwifery kits, antibiotics and malaria treatment.“As the country grapples with the impact of a devastating economic and political crisis, we will continue to provide its most vulnerable children, wherever they are, with the humanitarian support they need”, said Paloma Escudero, UNICEF Director of Communication. “Children’s needs must always remain above politics.”On her return from a recent visit, Ms. Escudero said that people in Venezuela had told her the health situation was “grim”, adding that, because of a shortage of medicine, and an exodus of many doctors and nurses, medical centres are running at minimum capacity.Many mobile health units and ambulances are grounded due to a lack of spare parts, she said, and, with worsening fuel shortages, some pregnant women cannot even make it to health centres. “For a country that made remarkable progress for decades on the quality of its health care, this is quite dramatic.”The UN agencies operating in Venezuela have urged donors to increase funding, so that they can scale up their response to the crisis. IOM said that the humanitarian Regional Refugee and Migrant Response Plan (RMRP) launched last December is only 21 percent funded. UNICEF said that flexible funding is needed to allow the agency to reach children in need with quality support. In a joint statement, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), described the scale of the exodus as “staggering”, with the number of displaced people jumping by a million over a seven-month period, from November 2018.“These alarming figures highlight the urgent need to support host communities in the receiving countries”, said Eduardo Stein, joint UNHCR-IOM Special Representative for Venezuelan refugees and migrants. “Latin American and Caribbean countries are doing their part to respond to this unprecedented crisis, but they cannot be expected to continue doing it without international help.”Most of the Venezuelans who have fled, are being hosted in Latin America: more than half are in Colombia and Peru, followed by Chile, Ecuador, Argentina and Brazil. read more

Football Urban Meyer says Ryan Day turned down SEC head coaching job

Co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day prior to the Ohio State- Oklahoma game on Sep. 9. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOhio State co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day will likely be the next Urban Meyer assistant coach to be hired elsewhere as a head coach. It just won’t happen this year.Meyer said Wednesday during his press conference on Early Signing Day that Day turned down an offer to be a head coach at a program in the Southeastern Conference.“Coach Day had the opportunity to potentially be a head coach in the SEC and decided to stay at Ohio State,” Meyer said. “He’s done a phenomenal job for us. There have been other coaches on our staff have opportunities to move on and they haven’t, so this coaching staff is very strong right now.”Day was hired last January and inked a two-year contract with Ohio State. He was paid a base salary of $400,000 this season, but that will increase to $800,000 next season.There were a total of six SEC head coach positions open this offseason. Mississippi State, Texas A&M, Florida, Tennessee, Arkansas and Ole Miss have all filled those positions. It’s unclear which one of those positions offered the job to Day.Day told reporters in the locker room after the Big Ten championship game that he had not been contacted by another school for another job at that point.Day, also the quarterbacks coach, was largely responsible for a turnaround of the Ohio State offense in 2017. The Buckeyes averaged the fifth-most points per game in the country with 42.5 and the passing offense ranked 28th in 2017 with an average of 274.2 yards compared to 81st in 2016 with 213.9 yards. read more

Des incendies ravagent le sudouest de la France

first_imgDes incendies ravagent le sud-ouest de la FranceFrance – Depuis ce week-end, les pompiers luttent contre un important incendie de forêt dans les Landes et contre deux autres en Gironde, auxquels est venu s’ajouter un troisième mardi 5 juillet. Des moyens importants sont mobilisés, et des vacanciers ont dû être momentanément évacués.Plus de 120 sapeurs-pompiers, appuyés par quatre Canadair et un Trackair, interviennent depuis mardi soir au Pian-Médoc et à Arsac (Gironde) sur un incendie qui s’est déclaré vers 17H30. “Une vingtaine d’hectares ont déjà brûlé et deux maisons qui étaient menacées ont été évacuées”, selon le commandant Arnaud Mendousse, qui a estimé que la lutte pourrait durer toute le nuit.À lire aussiLa migration de millions de crabes rouges filmée sur l’île de Christmas”La priorité est aux feux naissants, donc il faut agir vite et fort”, a déclaré le capitaine Hervé Correia, des pompiers de la Gironde : ce nouveau feu a donc contraint les autorités à délester d’une partie du dispositif de lutte le site de Lacanau (Gironde), à 40 km de là. Depuis samedi, celui-ci est également en proie à un incendie qui a déjà détruit quelque 380 hectares.Aujourd’hui, cet incendie est considéré comme “sous contrôle”, grâce à l’intervention de 145 pompiers, d’un hélicoptère, d’un Canadair et d’un Trackair, et malgré des reprises de feu dues au vent. Mais l’intervention s’est avérée particulièrement difficile car le site est marécageux, tourbeux et assez inaccessible. Lundi, un camping et un centre de vacances avaient d’ailleurs été évacués par précaution durant quelques heures. “L’incendie est stabilisé car son périmètre n’évolue plus”, a déclaré Patrick Stefanini, préfet d’Aquitaine.Plus de 50 hectares brûlés dans les LandesÀ Cestas, au sud de Bordeaux, un autre incendie a brûlé quelque 20 hectares et entraîné un ralentissement sur l’autoroute A63 mais aucune évacuation. Il a été maitrisé lundi soir. Enfin, dans les Landes, un autre foyer important a déjà fait partir en fumée une cinquantaine d’hectares, mobilisant 125 pompiers et 50 véhicules. Pas encore maîtrisé mais présentant une évolution jugée “favorable” lundi par les experts, il n’a entraîné pour l’instant aucune évacuation.Le 6 juillet 2011 à 14:04 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Jet Airways layoffs After pay cut plans failed to materialise airline letting

first_imgA Jet Airways Boeing 777-300ER taxis at San Francisco International Airport, San Francisco, California, February 16, 2015.Reuters fileA Jet Airways Boeing 777-300ER taxis at San Francisco International Airport, San Francisco, California, February 16, 2015.Reuters fileIt looks like the buzz around Jet Airways is not going to die any time soon. After it was said that the airline had asked it staffers to take a 25 percent pay cut – plans that did not materialize – Jet is now reportedly mulling handing out pink slips to about 500 of its ground personnel.Not just that, the airline may also reportedly reorganise and trim the cabin crew on its Boeing and Airbus fleet, reported Financial Express. India’s second largest airline, Jet has already been facing financial woes due to rising competition, adverse effect of foreign exchange and high fuel prices, and is now said to be looking at ways to cut costs.Jet Airways plans to cut down the number of cabin crew members to four or five – depending on the sector – from the current six when it comes to its single-aisle aircraft. For larger aircraft, the number is likely to be brought down to 12 from 13 and to eight from nine when it comes to the Airbus.Sources also told FE that Jet Airways will also consider a move in which it may not renew the contracts of its senior cabin crew members, as they are much more expensive than junior and mid-level employees.However, the Naresh Goyal-founded company has denied all reports of layoffs and said that Jet has no such plans in place. “Jet Airways undertakes frequent review of service procedures and crew complement on aircraft,” the airline told FE . “Jet Airways emphatically denies any conjecture of ground staff rationalisation, as is being speculated.”This comes days after it was reported that Jet had asked its staffers to take a pay cut of up to 25 percent August 2018 onwards. It was said that the percentage would depend on the earnings of the employees and range from 5 percent for those who earn about Rs 12 lakh per annum to 25 percent for those who earn Rs 1 crore and more a year.An airline source had even told the Economic Times that pilots could face a pay cut of about 17 percent, which in turn would save the company about Rs 500 crore.But Jet Airways refuted these reports and said that no one in the company was asked to leave. Labelling the reports “factually incorrect” and “malicious,” chief executive officer Vinay Dube, on August 3, said that the airline was consistently taking up several measures to cut costs without affecting the employees.”The dialogue with employees has been to apprise them of the challenges being faced by the aviation sector in India and by the Company in particular, with an intent to enlist their full support and cooperation for realising necessary savings across all business functions,” NDTV quoted Dube as saying.Meanwhile, the airline had last year asked its pilots to take a 30 percent pay cut. In July 2017, Jet Airways had asked its junior pilots, who joined the brand in 2016, to take a 30 percent pay cut or leave.In a bid to trim costs, Jet Airways had reportedly made a few changes to the pilots’ contracts, making it mandatory for them to take 10 days of leave in a month apart from their weekly offs. This, in turn, would result in a 30 percent reduction in their salaries. The pilots were then given until the end of the month to take a decision.

As an interim measure, we shall be offering you a Lifestyle Work Pattern which entails 10 days block off per month with the appropriate remuneration. This will be effective August 1,” the private full-service carrier told its employees in a note, according to Reuters.”In case you do not wish to accept the above terms and desire to seek alternate opportunities, within the industry or outside, you may revert by July 31, 2017. In such a case, we shall assist you by facilitating the necessary formalities as may be required.”Jet Airways, a full-service airline, currently has a fleet of 121 aircraft and flies to 66 destinations worldwide.last_img read more

Some City Council Members Are Frustrated Over PostHarvey CleanUp Process

Four Teens Indicted For Baltimore Area Carjackings

first_imgAccording to authorities the thefts took place between September and December of 2017 and often included the suspects physically assaulting their victims. The Attorney General’s Office said the teens would allegedly tackle their victims, kick them, and hit them with guns. They even broke one person’s nose, fractured another person’s skull and fired shots at another victim who was trying to escape.Allegedly, after the teens had access to the stolen cars, they would cause accidents and use the stolen keys to go back and steal another car from the victims’ homes, said Frosh in a press conference Aug. 13. They showed “no concern about consequences,” often bragging about their exploits on social media, and wearing the key fobs on their belt like trophies, according to Frosh.“They need to understand that this type of collaboration (Baltimore Police, Attorney General) exists and that we’re simply just not going to tolerate it,” Interim Police Commissioner Gary Tuggle said.The carjacking and assault spree came to an end last week in Howard County when police caught the teens after a brief car chase and learned they were linked to several other carjackings. The teens face up to 100 years in prison.Only one of the teens is under age however, they will all be charged as adults. By Michelle Richardson, Special to the AFROFour Baltimore teens have been indicted in what Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh called “a violent, organized carjacking ring” that extended from Baltimore City to Baltimore County. Dalante Graham, 18, Tyheim Gray, 19, Daquan Johnson, 18, and Travon Williamston, 17, are charged with 26 carjacking or auto-theft incidents, including counts for participating in a criminal gang, armed carjacking, armed robbery, theft between $1,500 and $25,000, use of a handgun in a crime of violence, assault in the 1st and 2nd degree, among other charges.last_img read more

Do this if Chrome shows a black bar at the bottom

first_imgDo this if Chrome shows a black bar at the bottom by Martin Brinkmann on August 07, 2018 in Google Chrome – Last Update: May 02, 2019 – 60 commentsI don’t know how widespread the issue is but user reports on Google’s official Google Chrome Help forum indicate that some Chrome users see a black bar at the bottom of the screen when using Google Chrome.The issue was first reported on April 25 by a user who wrote “When in Chrome, there is a black horizontal bar across the bottom of the screen that I can’t get rid of”.The bar sits at the bottom of the browser user interface and hides certain information that Chrome displays there. Any content that gets downloaded is displayed in the area and the black bar overshadows it so that it cannot be interacted with according to the user.The issue has been ongoing with recent Chrome Stable releases affected by it. Google Community Specialists suggested a number of things including running in Incognito Mode, creating a new user, running the Chrome Cleanup Tool, running a virus scan, or even reinstalling Chrome, but none fixed the issue according to users affected by it.Some users reported that disabling hardware acceleration helped fix the issue but this was not the case for everyone who experienced it and the issue came back at least once for a user.You can try disabling hardware acceleration by opening chrome://settings/ in the Chrome address bar, scrolling down and clicking on advanced, and toggling “Use hardware acceleration when available” to off under the System category a bit further down the page.Users could try and install driver updates for the video card if available.There is a workaround that helps users 100% of the time, however. You can get rid of the black bar for the session by entering fullscreen mode and exiting it again. Just tap on F11 to enter Chrome’s fullscreen mode and F11 again to exit it.If you experienced a black bar in Chrome it should be gone by the time Chrome returns to normal display mode.It is interesting to note that the issue appears to affect other applications such as VLC or Firefox as well as some users reported that. Not all users revealed the operating system used on the machines they experienced the issue but those who did ran Windows 10 systems.Since Chrome is not the only program affected, it is likely that the issue is either related to display drivers (a combination of hardware and drivers), or a Windows-specific issue as no user on Linux or Mac has reported the issue yet.Update: Another solution has been found that you may want to give a try if the system has an Intel HD Graphics adapter. Right-click on the Intel HD Graphics icon and select Display. Choose the Scale Full Screen option and make sure Override Application Settings is checked.Now You: Have you been affected by black bars in Chrome?Related articlesGoogle to remove the black navigation bar?How to fix Google Chrome black screen issuesHow To Remove Black Bars On YouTube VideosSummaryArticle NameDo this if Chrome shows a black bar at the bottomDescriptionReports on Google’s official Google Chrome Help forum indicate that some users see a black bar at the bottom of the screen when using Google Chrome.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
