Assembly President looks for compromise on Security Council reform

27 May 2011With different groups holding steadfast to their respective positions regarding reform of the Security Council, the President of the General Assembly today called for a “compromise” on the issue, at least a temporary one. “Probably it is not possible actually to find a solution where one of these different groups will get the total of their aspirations,” Joseph Deiss told a news conference at UN Headquarters. “We should try to make some reform that could not be final, that means that (it) should be reviewed at some time, but that could bring something which improves the situation in a way that every country can say our own possibility to be a member sometime in the Security Council is improved,” said Mr. Deiss, who heads the 192-member Assembly.Security Council reform has been under discussion for over 17 years, with the key issues being the category of membership, the question of veto, regional representation, the size of an enlarged Council, and the Council’s working methods and its relationship with the General Assembly. The 15-member Council comprises five permanent members with veto power – China, France, Russia, United Kingdom and United States – and 10 non-permanent members with no veto, who are elected for two-year terms. Mr. Deiss repeated his concerns that unless the Council is reformed to reflect modern political reality, the entire UN could lose credibility and be marginalized with important issues being discussed in other forums. In response to a question on the possibility that the Assembly would vote to admit an independent Palestinian state, Mr. Deiss said that the Security Council must recommend new members, without a veto from any permanent member.“So the General Assembly cannot take the initiative but we are ready to do our work as soon as a recommendation of the Security Council would be addressed,” he said. “It must be recalled that General Assembly resolution 181 of 1947 already provides for the creation of two states, one Arab, one Jewish, at the end of the British Mandate in Palestine,” he added. read more

HRCSL writes to AG raises concerns on detainees

The Commission views prolonged administrative detention or remand of persons as a serious violation of the fundamental rights guaranteed to them under Articles 72 and 13 of the Constitution of Sri Lanka as well as under Sri Lanka’s human rights obligations under international law. The Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) has written to Attorney General (AG) Y J Wijayatilake, conveying to him its grave concern about the rights of the detainees and remandees held under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) and the Emergency Regulations and called upon him to take necessary measures to ensure the protection of the rights of these detainees and remandees.The Commission has called for the immediate release of those held in detention or remand for a long period of time without charges and against whom there is no credible evidence. The Commission has further called upon the Attorney General to review the cases of those indicted and to withdraw those cases which are solely based on confessions made to police officers, caseswhere no credible evidence exist and cases which are relatively minor. The Human Rights Commission has also communicated to the Attorney General its concerns about the rehabilitation process to which detainees and remandees will reportedly be subjected.The Commission has shared these concerns with the Attorney General in the hope it will be ableto engage in dialogue with, and extend its support to, the Attorney-General’s Department inorder to seek an urgent resolution to this critical issue. In respect of accused indicted under the PTA and Emergency Regulations against whom there iscredible evidence but who have been in detention and or remand for long periods of time, theCommission has expressed its view that arrangements should be made to release such personson bail immediately. read more

Innovation Nation How smart cities may be too smart for their own

Canada has a rich history of innovation, but in the next few decades, powerful technological forces will transform the global economy. Large multinational companies have jumped out to a headstart in the race to succeed, and Canada runs the risk of falling behind. At stake is nothing less than our prosperity and economic well-being. The Financial Post set out explore what is needed for businesses to flourish and grow. You can find all of our coverage here.“I don’t think I’ve ever said anything about smart cities,” says Dan Doctoroff, chief executive of Sidewalk Labs, Alphabet Inc.’s urban innovation arm. “I really don’t like the term.”That dislike is a little bit unfortunate, because, whether Doctoroff likes it or not, he happens to be in charge of Canada’s most high-profile smart city project: “Google’s smart city” — as it is called in one news story after another — on the Toronto waterfront.Just how smart the Sidewalk Toronto project will ultimately become is still a bit hazy. It might be a technology-infused, data-driven, futuristic neighbourhood “reimagining cities from the internet up” as the company was once fond of saying. Or, critics say, it could turn into a company town that subverts the democratic will of governments and sets bad precedents for data collection, privacy and digital surveillance.At this point, Sidewalk Toronto is largely open to interpretation, which is precisely what makes it such a perfect example of a smart city project: it’s big, ambitious, technology-driven and, most importantly, still an idea, a vision, a proposal that hasn’t been realized yet.Even something as seemingly straightforward as planning to use self-driving cars causes confusion. Will the project close all the streets in the neighbourhood and only allow autonomous vehicles? That doesn’t make much sense for an area that covers only about 12 acres and can be walked from one end to the other in just 10 minutes. Instead, it might plan the streets and parking spaces in a way to accommodate self-driving cars, which is a little less groundbreaking.Proponents also talk about “tall timber” construction, using wood in innovative ways to make new kinds of buildings, and a radically different approach to public space in the buildings. Concept drawings generally feature hexagonal paving stones, allowing for flexible streetscapes that can be changed to suit different kinds of usage. Read our full Innovation Nation series Remember the internet of the ’90s? That’s what Canada’s outdated data protection laws were meant to handle Cryptoassets will revolutionize financial services — for those who play the long game The goal: Made in Canada, stayed in Canada, proudly Canadian But Doctoroff and the rest of the Sidewalk Labs team consistently say everything is a work in progress and all the ideas are open for discussion, consultation and revision until a final Master Innovation and Development Plan (MIDP) is submitted — supposedly by the end of June — to Waterfront Toronto, the federal-provincial-municipal governing agency.Even after the MIDP is published, years of permit approvals and construction plans await before any buildings are ready for occupancy. Of course, there’s also the matter of the money — likely billions of dollars — to implement that plan. Sidewalk Labs has already committed $50 million to just get this far in the process.But whatever the Sidewalk Toronto project becomes in the years ahead, the drive for smart cities isn’t going anywhere, even if a lot of urbanists would really appreciate a little rebranding.Doctoroff isn’t alone in his distaste for the “smart city” term. Most people who work in urban technology and innovation cringe because it’s become an annoying buzz term such as “the internet of things” or “blockchain.”The term also implies that today’s cities are dumb, but tomorrow they’ll be smart, which belies the enormous engineering, planning and management already embedded into every modern city.Nevertheless, the prospects for smart cities have captured the public’s attention. According to an October Surveymonkey poll for the Financial Post, 35 per cent of respondents are excited for Canada to partake in smart city projects during the next decade. By comparison, only 18 per cent of respondents were excited about artificial intelligence, and just 13 per cent were excited about self-driving cars.The federal government is also on board, having launched the Smart City Challenge in 2017 to fund municipalities that apply technology in novel ways to make life better in their communities.The case for smart cities at its core goes something like this: urbanization has steadily intensified for years, putting them at risk of grinding to a halt and collapsing under their own weight. The solution, evangelists say, is to apply innovative technology and thinking to do things such as route traffic more quickly, use energy more efficiently and make residents healthier and happier.Of course, the devil is in the details, or, more specifically, the data.Through the second half of 2018, Sidewalk Labs has faced mounting opposition from activists who want to know who will own the data associated with the Toronto project.Privacy is the most obvious concern, but policy advocates prefer to talk about data governance, which is a catch-all for questions about who owns and operates the urban data sensors, who has access to the data they collect and what the data can be used for.For example, sensors embedded in buildings could dynamically control heating and cooling systems to improve energy efficiency, but also track people as they move around. Should that system be operated by a private company or the government? If the data is anonymized, should it be available — either sold or freely given away — to third parties that could mine it for other purposes? Should police have access to the data if it would help their investigations?In China, authorities are using cameras and facial recognition software to automatically identify jaywalkers and send them instant fines by text message. Many Canadians might think that crosses the line from a smart city to an authoritarian, state-run city, but the line is increasingly fuzzy.Kurtis McBride, chief executive and co-founder of Kitchener, Ont-based Miovision Technologies Inc., which makes systems to manage traffic flow in urban environments, has spent a lot of time thinking about these data and technology issues.McBride said he’s still waiting for a consensus “architecture” for how smart city systems fit together. Right now, he said, companies are hoping to dominate urban technology the way America Online (AOL) became king of the internet before an open system based on web browsers and pages took over.“When an ultimate architecture and protocol emerges for the smart city, the impact and the possibilities are going to be so much more profound,” he said.McBride said the tussle to define future smart city standards is part of why the Sidewalk Labs project is so contentious and controversial: people worry that it will help set a precedent for how data is managed across myriad future projects in Canada.As a result, he said, government should be taking the lead in making data governance rules.“It’s very dangerous if we assume that the private sector is responsible for thinking about privacy with respect to data,” McBride said. “That’s the opposite of democracy. The people should set the rules about how data can be used and not used, and then corporations should follow those rules.”Finding a common architecture also addresses bigger issues than just traffic lights and public infrastructure, said Matthew Boukall, vice-president of product management and data solutions at real estate adviser Altus Group Ltd.Boukall said he is seeing plenty of smart city-type innovations embedded into new buildings, but each building at this point is essentially an island. Eventually, he expects a network of connected buildings will manage things such as energy consumption.In the case of Sidewalk Toronto, the company has proposed that an independent “civic data trust” would analyze and approve all urban data proposals to help ensure transparency and privacy.Kristina Verner, vice-president of Innovation, Sustainability and Prosperity at Waterfront Toronto, which has been helping to facilitate the Sidewalk Toronto public consultation process and will ultimately provide oversight on the final MIDP, said a lot of the issues around privacy can be addressed by anonymizing data right from the beginning.“All of the personally identifiable information that could be collected here needs to be de-identified and delinked from the broader data sets, so that you don’t run into a situation where there’s a bit of a surveillance city kind of involvement happening,” she said. “It should be a neighbourhood that’s really grounded in privacy.”But de-identified data collection isn’t the norm in the rest of Toronto. Subways, streetcars and buses have CCTV cameras and that video footage allows people to be identified. Moreover, the Toronto Transit Commission and other public transit agencies in the Greater Toronto Area use Presto cards and have handed over personal data about users to police on dozens of occasions.Doctoroff believes Sidewalk Toronto will define a higher standard when it comes to urban data collection.“We want to go much further than the status quo, which is essentially kind of the Wild West out there in terms of the collection of data in the public realm,” he said. “With CCTV cameras proliferating everywhere now, sensors all over the place, we actually believe at the end of the day that we need a stronger data governance regime.”Teresa Scassa, Canada Research Chair in Information Law and Policy at the University of Ottawa, and a member of the Waterfront Toronto Digital Strategy Advisory Panel, said policymakers will likely continue wrestling with these policy questions for a long time as the technology develops.“We are tinkering and fiddling. There’s more reform probably coming,” she said. “It’s urgent on one level, but at the same time, it’s just going to constantly be a work in progress.”Several critics following the Sidewalk Toronto project said the most useful thing to come out of the whole process might be to spark a serious policy discussions, even if it means Sidewalk Labs becomes a lightning rod for criticism along the way.However, Sidewalk Labs is likely an anomaly in the real development of smart cities. A single company doesn’t usually get to develop a sweeping master plan for a swath of prime real estate.A normal smart city company might look more like Uber Technologies Inc., which started as a simple ride-sharing app, but has since expanded into a broad spectrum of urban transportation services: taxis, carpooling, electric bikes in some cities, Uber Eats food delivery and even a minibus service, which recently launched in Egypt.Instead of being a planned, government-driven vision, Uber grew organically, sometimes clashing with governments that wanted to regulate the company.Andrew Salzburg, Uber’s global head of Transportation Policy and Research, said Uber Pool is a good example of how the company was able to use its data and product delivery abilities to create a service that allows people to share rides when they’re going in the same direction.“Data is part of it, but it’s also the whole platform, and the ability to handle millions of requests at the same time,” he said. “It’s actually very hard to get to scale and have enough people going in the same direction to then make it possible to offer a carpooling service.”Uber has also launched a system called Uber Movement, which provides aggregated, anonymized data on travel times within urban centres, based on data pulled from millions of rides.Salzburg said Movement is a bit of an olive branch to demonstrate the company is interesting in working cooperatively with municipal governments, instead of doing battle with them as it has in the past.“Fundamentally, we built a layer technology to move riders around, move food around and for services,” he said. “But now that we have that in place, there’s an opportunity to go back to governments in cities of all sizes, and say, ‘Hey, what are the problems that people have been working on for a long time that technology can help solve?’”It’s entirely possible that Sidewalk Labs is mired in controversy precisely because it is taking a more thoughtful approach, asking permission to build a smart city, whereas Uber is begging forgiveness for barging in and disrupting urban transportation after the fact.But as the technology develops, organic, piece-by-piece urban innovation — by companies, services and tools such as Uber, Presto and Google Maps and Street View — will likely be far more important in shaping policy, data and governance in the future of cities. read more

China’s Dalian Wanda Group and Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group have formed a partnership to cooperate on multiple big-budget movies, marking another step into the global film industry by the Chinese conglomerate. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes, File) BEIJING, China – China’s Dalian Wanda Group and Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group have formed a partnership to co-operate on multiple big-budget movies, marking another step into the global film industry by the Chinese conglomerate.Wanda, which already owns AMC Theaters and bought Legendary Entertainment for $3.5 billion in January, said it would both invest in Sony productions and strive to highlight China in those films.“The alliance will help strengthen Wanda’s power to influence the global film industry, and set a good precedent for Chinese film producers in their international investment,” said the statement it released Friday.Jack Gao, Wanda’s head of international investment and operations, said Wanda would continue to seek alliances with other content companies and closer relationships with leading media firms.The statement did not name the films involved, although trade magazine Deadline reported possible investment and promotional co-operation for “Passengers,” the sci-fi love story starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt being released later this year in the U.S.; a reboot of “Jumanji” due next year with Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and Jack Black; and an animated Smurfs film.Legendary Entertainment begins production in 2017 on the first live-action Pokemon movie, called “Detective Pikachu.”Hollywood has been drawn to China by the country’s deep-pocketed financiers and its box office that is now the world’s second biggest. A quota on foreign films allows just 34 a year to show in Chinese theatres on a revenue-sharing basis, but the financial conditions improve vastly for Chinese-foreign co-productions.Wanda has also been expanding its share of global box office, with AMC recently purchasing European cinema chain Odeon & UCI Cinemas Group in a deal making it the largest movie theatre operator in the world.Originally a property and cinema giant, Wanda has also expanded into sports, becoming a top-tier sponsor of FIFA in a deal that runs through the 2030 World Cup, for which China is considered likely to bid.Wanda has also purchased Swiss firm Infront Sports & Media, Tampa and Florida-based World Triathlon Corp., along with acquiring a 20 per cent stake in Spanish football team Atletico Madrid. read more

Nine neighbourhoods with water woes in Grand Turk Vandals strike again

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, November 11, 2016 – Vandals have caused at least nine communities in Grand Turk to be with limited to no water supply until the problem is fixed.   Again, a completely thoughtless person or group of people are believed behind the destruction of the water main, which is located in the Breezy Brae district.The damage caused is characterized as major and this was not the first time.  While Public Works says it will fix the issue, there is less clarity on whether there is security in the area especially as this was not the first time for vandals to strike.Vandalism of government property in islands like Grand Turk has been a problem in recent years; extremely expensive to the public purse – delaying the South Caicos Airport; forcing vehicle repairs and replacements and in arguably the worst case, the intentional torching of HJ Robinson High school is costing us $2 million to rebuild after a fire ravaged the Principal’s block in January.

Lufthansa interested in Alitalia with Italian state stake

previous governments Related News Contrary to the popular narrative the second green revolution is underway A dramatic turnaround of agriculture India’s most important sector has gone largely unheralded Contrary to the popular narrative agriculture has been transformed in the last 10 years The second green revolution is underway At the end of the second tenure of the UPA and after a decade of persistent work we are witnessing record agricultural outputs for every major crop — grains oil seeds pulses cotton vegetables and sugarcane And more importantly we are also seeing record profitability ratios for our farmers Today we are not only self-sufficient but have also made steady progress in becoming a feeder to the world Our farmers are the unsung heroes of this untold story Life in a village is no longer a clichéd bundle of miseries thanks to the inclusive growth policies of successive UPA governments Emphasis on access to credit higher farm productivity road connectivity debt write-offs and remunerative prices have transformed the face of agrarian India In 2014 alone agriculture is expected to grow at 46 per cent Our agriculture production of foodgrains this year is expected to break the 2011-12 record of 259 million tonnes More importantly agricultural profitability has increased over the last decade with record increases in MSPs (minimum support prices for agricultural produce) for all covered crops MSP increases in the past 10 years between 2004-05 to 2014-15 vary from about 125 per cent for foodgrains such as wheat and paddy to over 200 per cent for pulses like moong dal These numbers represent the highest rate of MSP increase for any decadal period in our history The substantial rise in farmland prices across India is proof that the profession of farming is back in vogue The situation was drastically different when the UPA formed the government in June 2004 Agriculture was in crisis A government drunk on its “India Shining” propaganda had largely ignored the sector From 1998-2004 agriculture grew by a paltry 29 per cent This low growth adversely affected the livelihoods of farmers and posed a serious threat to national food security There was the (incorrect) perception that the agricultural sector was crumbling Farmers were getting uprooted Unable to service debt some even took their own lives For the record farmer suicides peaked in 2004 A decade later a sector once described as terminally sick is now a beacon of hope The UPA’s inclusive policies have helped the farmer achieve this remarkable success Such a transformation could only have been achieved by the methodical work and cooperation between the agriculture minister finance minister prime minister and the Congress party president who has taken passionate personal interest in supporting this cause According to Ashok Gulati the outgoing chairman of the Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices (CACP) investment in agriculture as a percentage of the agri-GDP has risen sharply from 10-12 per cent in the early 2000s to about 20 per cent by 2011-12 About 85 per cent of this investment has come from the private sector driven primarily by an attractive price regime and rising profitability in agriculture Private borrowings often at very high interest rates had been a bane for our farmers as the doors of the financial institutions were never really open to them Our inclusive growth policies have led to financial institutions lending more than Rs 700000 crore in 2013-14 a seven-time increase from Rs104500 crore in 2004-05 The interest on short-term crop loans has been systematically reduced from a record high of about 12-14 per cent in 2004-05 to a 4 per cent average in 2014-15 Not to forget the largest one-time farm loan waiver scheme worth Rs 52000 crore was delivered by UPA 1 to bring the poorest debt-ridden farmers back into the financial system The UPA has managed to deliver easier and more credit to a higher number of farmers at a lower rate of interest than previous governments The down the line effect of easier credit can be seen in indicators like annual tractor sales which now exceed more than 37 lakh units up from about 2 lakh units in the early 2000s Similarly the usage of NPK fertiliser has increased by 50 per cent from 184 million tonnes (mt) in 2004-05 to 28 mt in 2011-12 According to the Indian Council of Agricultural Research electricity consumption in agriculture was about 886 gigawatt hours (gwh) in 2004-05 In 2010-11 it had increased to 1291 gwh an increase of 45 per cent in six years Public sector research institutes and state agriculture universities have developed a large number of hybrid seeds since 2004 As a result the share of public sector seeds has actually increased vis-à-vis the private sector Bt Cotton is a prime example of advanced technology that can substantially benefit farmers We now produce about 35 crore bales of cotton as against 151 crore bales in 2003-5 Till 2004-05 the net surplus of agricultural trade did not exceed $5 billion in any year since Independence In 2012-13 alone our net surplus from agri-exports stood at $21 billion with $41 billion in net exports The two major national missions namely the National Food Security Mission and Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana launched in 2007 have also shown great promise There is a substantial increase in farmers moving towards higher value agricultural products such as horticulture and livestock The benefits of the UPA’s policies have not been limited to farmers Farm labourers have also seen a record increase in daily wages in the last decade as MGNREGA set a base wage The real farm wage in the last six years has increased at a record annual rate of 7 per cent per annum — showcasing the successful spread of our inclusive policies The development of rural India is essential for inclusive growth Only inclusive growth can create a virtuous self-sustaining economy by building a solid foundation for the future without which there will be no equity social justice and stability We have been able to unlock the economic potential of that section of our population which was trapped in poverty The revival of agriculture was not an option but an imperative — after all about 60 per cent of our population depended on it In this last decade we have been successfully able to change the economic discourse of our nation from the NDA’s “India Shining” to the UPA’s “Bharat Nirman” And we are hopeful that this inclusive vision of growth pursued by UPA 1 and 2 will continue to be the vision of choice for our people when they go out to vote in this election season The writer a Congress MP from Haryana is contesting for a Lok Sabha seat
