Young people present proposals to G8 leaders with UNICEFs help

7 July 2008Young people holding their own parallel summit to the current Group of Eight (G-8) meeting in Japan today presented their proposals for global development to the leaders of the world’s most industrialized nations, in an initiative led by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Nine young people – eight representing G-8 countries and one from the developing world – met face-to-face with leaders gathered for the annual high-level summit, which is being held in the Japanese mountain resort of Toyako, and presented recommendations revolving around three topics: climate change, poverty and development, and global health.The nine young people represented 39 participants in the J-8, or “Junior 8,” summit being held this week in Chitose City in Hokkaido, Japan, where they issued a statement called the “Chitose Declaration” after several months of preparatory work.“The J8 delegates… believe that it is imperative for G8 leaders to listen to the voices of young people,” the Chitose Declaration states. “Together let’s turn young people’s ideas into actions, and not just words.”The young people’s recommendations include establishing an international organization to evaluate products based on “Green Indexes” such as energy efficiency, waste management, packaging, and product composition, as well as having G-8 leaders sign a declaration prohibiting the provision of aid that is motivated toward political gain rather than the common good.In addition, they proposed supporting educational programmes on disease prevention, nutrition, sanitation and worldwide sexual education, while preventing governments from restricting access to contraceptives and health education. read more

Air Canada files challenge with federal regulator over Onexs WestJet takeover

MONTREAL — Air Canada has filed a challenge with the country’s transport regulator over WestJet Airlines Ltd.’s acquisition by Onex Corp.Canada’s biggest airline argues the $3.5-billion takeover would breach federal rules that limit foreign ownership of carriers.Toronto-based Onex entered into an agreement in May to pay $31 per share for WestJet, which would operate as a private company.Air Canada says in a letter to the Canadian Transportation Agency that co-investors in Onex — a private equity firm whose funds include cash from foreign investors — may come from outside the country. Federal legislation limits foreign ownership of a Canadian airline to 49 per cent, with a maximum of 25 per cent for any one foreign investor.Onex says it is pleased the deal has received approval from federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau and the Competition Bureau.WestJet shareholders approved the proposed acquisition in July, with 92.5 per cent voting in favour. The same month, an Alberta court approved the deal, which Onex and WestJet expect to complete following further regulatory green lights later this year.Companies in this story (TSX:WJA, TSX:AC)The Canadian Press read more

UN refugee agency concerned at worsening security on SudaneseChadian border

Over a three-week period, the militia launched six raids on various refugee and Chadian communities close to the volatile frontier, stealing hundreds of head of cattle, some of them belonging to refugees, and killing a Chadian villager, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said.Meanwhile, ongoing violence across the border in Sudan continues to drive Sudanese refugees into eastern Chad, the agency added. Chadian local authorities said that in one attack, Sudanese Arab militia torched six Sudanese villages just over the border from Borota. UNHCR staff in eastern Chad later witnessed thick smoke billowing from the burning homes, and interviewed 10 new refugee families who said they had fled the militia attack in which they had lost their homes.The cross-border incursions come amid escalating violence in Sudan’s Darfur region that has displaced nearly half a million people by some estimates. More than 65,000 others have fled over the border into eastern Chad.Hobbled by the prevailing insecurity and lack of travel permits from the Sudanese government, aid agencies have recently been unable to deliver urgently-needed supplies to the strife-torn region, raising fears that more people may decide to go to Chad in search of relative safety and assistance.For the past few years, the Darfur region in western Sudan has been the scene of a conflict pitting nomadic groups against sedentary agricultural people such as the Fur, Zaghawa and Masalit.Early this year, the Sudan Liberation Army – the military wing of the autonomist Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM) – took up arms to protest against the perceived lack of government protection for the farming communities in Darfur. The government responded militarily. The conflict has heightened ethnic tensions between Sudanese of Arab origin and those of African origin in western Sudan. read more

Bank of Canada chief absolutely open to idea of woman on currency

Bank of Canada chief ‘absolutely open’ to idea of woman on currency next time by Julian Beltrame, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 3, 2013 11:48 am MDT OTTAWA – Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz says he is “absolutely open” to the idea of putting an identifiable woman back on Canada’s currency, but that will have to wait until the next roll-out of bills.The central bank has taken heat from women’s groups for removing the so-called Famous Five, relating to the Supreme Court case that recognized women as persons, from the $50 note in the most recent roll-out of polymer bills.Poloz acknowledges he had a weighty petition with 22,000 signatures plunked on his desk recently drawing his attention to the omission.The petition, organized by author and historian Merna Forster, has been signed by a number of luminaries, including author Margaret Atwood and actors Kim Cattrall and Cynthia Dale.“I really appreciate having the petition …. It’s impressive but we’re not going to change the notes tomorrow. But that will be a nice input to have in the next series,” Poloz said in an interview, adding that he found the arguments well-reasoned.“I’m absolutely open to the idea” for the future, he said.Canadian women may have to wait a few years, however, possibly as much as a decade. And there are no guarantees.Poloz says the process takes years and includes public consultations and focus-group testing to settle on a theme and the images to display the theme.In the current series, which cost $20 million to develop, the chosen theme was “frontiers” dealing with Canadian breakthroughs. He notes there are no images of recognizable men on the notes either, except for a few prime ministers. An image of the Queen, of course, is on the bills.It falls on Poloz to defend the new bills, even though their design was chosen under his predecessor Mark Carney, who has since received praise by announcing he intends to place a portrait of Jane Austen on the new British 10-pound note.“Jane Austen certainly merits a place in the select group of historical figures to appear on our banknotes,” Carney, now the Bank of England governor, said in a news release over the summer.Poloz unveils the last of the series — the $5 and $10 notes — on Thursday, with the lower denomination note bearing his signature.They feature former prime ministers Wilfrid Laurier and John A. Macdonald on the front, and the Canadarm and a train rolling through the Rockies on the back, respectively.“We’re pretty proud of them and actually the images are beautiful,” he said. “They really do represent things that Canada achieved.”“I know people may find (the lack of women) disappointing … but let’s think of that as the next big idea that’s landed on my desk for the next series.”The new $100 polymer note features an image of a female medical researcher peering into a microscope.Note to readers: This is a corrected story, a previous version wrong said a female researcher was peering into a telescope AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Sega first to get Adults Only Kinect game rating

first_imgSega has just been awarded a first in the UK where one of its games has been stamped with an Adults Only 18 rating by the British Board of Film Classification. Why is it a first? Because the game is exclusive to Kinect, making this the first hands-free adults only game for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 motion controller.The game in question is Rise of Nightmares, and from watching the trailer above you can see why it’s just for adults from the sound effects alone. The BBFC says the game has 45 minutes of cutscenes which are sure to be pretty gruesome if they awarded it the highest possible age rating.AdChoices广告In the game you will view things from a first-person perspective and use weapons including brass knuckles, knives, hatchets, and even chainsaws to keep zombies and monsters at bay. You play as an American tourist facing off against a mad scientist to get your wife back. Of course being a scientists he experiments a lot giving Sega freedom to throw all kinds of enemies at you. We’re thinking House of the Dead without the lightguns and a lot more movement on the player’s part.It all sounds thoroughly entertaining and makes me thankful for my over-18 status so I can play it.Let’s also hope this is just the first of many adult-themed games that push Kinect beyond fitness and family games. If that happens you may get some of the more hardcore gamers out there considering picking one up.Read more at CVGlast_img read more

Call of Duty Black Ops Annihilation DLC available now on Xbox Live

first_imgThe third map pack for Call of Dity: Black Ops, called “Annihilation,” is out now for the Xbox 360, and is available to download via Xbox Live. The same as with the previous two map packs, PS3 and PC gamers will have to wait a few weeks before they can get in on the action. The DLC includes four new maps and a zombie-themed level, just as the leak earlier this month implied.The Hangar 18 map takes place inside Area 51, where players will fight while pushing through the secret military installation toward experimental weapons labs, the famous “Skunk Works” hangar where the SR-71 Blackbird was tested, and ultimately through a medical facility that looks strangely like an autopsy room.The Drive-In map recreates a 1950s-style Drive-In movie theater, with open space near the screen and corner-cover combat around the refreshment stand and projector booth. Silo, predictably, puts players in an old Soviet-era nuclear missile facility that’s still armed, and Hazard takes place on a lush Cuban golf course with plenty of open spaces to snipe or be sniped and little cover.As with the other map packs for Call of Duty: Black Ops, there’s a zombie-themed level. This one is called Shangri-La, and drops players into a beautiful rainforest setting complete with ancient ruins, all of which are crawling with zombies. To boot, you’ll encounter different types of zombies: not just the slow, shambling types. You and your teammates will have to work together to survive and find your way out.Activision hasn’t said whether or not Annihilation will be the final DLC for Black Ops before the launch of Modern Warfare 3 this fall, but it’s very likely. The game will set you back 1200 Microsoft Points, or the equivalent of $15 USD. If you’re thinking of buying it, pick it up now, since July 1 will be the start of a double XP weekend on XBox Live, so all of your kills will be worth twice as much.last_img read more

Augmented Reality Angry Birds and Apples Other iPhone Gaming Plans

first_img I’ve been messing around with an iPhone XS Max for a few weeks and it really is a premium device. Despite my issues with modern iPhones (pointless removals of buttons and jacks, no more smaller options) they truly do feel like what you’d hope a thousand dollar phone would feel like. And it’s not just aesthetics. The continued speed and slickness of iOS along with increasingly powerful chips are getting us to the point where these are the only computers we need, mobile or otherwise.But to me it also feels like all this power in phones is becoming increasingly superfluous to most users. How many non-professionals need the A12 Bionic chip for heavy duty mobile video editing? 5G gets here when the carriers say it gets here, not the phone manufacturers. My photographer girlfriend appreciates the impressive camera on the XS Max along with Animoji shenanigans, but nearly any phone could easily display the static art of her gaming guilty pleasure Choices.So that’s why I was fascinated by the chance to go to a recent Apple briefing (where I picked up this loaner phone) to see how the tech giant is bragging about how video games specifically can benefit from their new devices. But while the games are cool, I’m not sure that more power is the solution to all of their problems.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>It bears repeating though, the new iPhones are powerful. Using Apple’s most recent Metal API developers are able to create some stunning looking games for the high-res display. Like with any other gaming platform, I saw a racing game to see the tech in action, the blisteringly fast Asphalt 9. And since Fortnite is available on every current platform imaginable, seeing its 60 FPS performance on iPhone (superior to the Nintendo Switch albeit with worse touch controls) was even more impressive. I already shared my thoughts on the upcoming The Elder Scrolls: Blades but that was another showpiece.I also saw a game that takes advantage of different new iPhone powers. Angry Birds has been a mega-hit on the App Store for about as long as the decade-old service has been around. They even got two movies out of this thing. So at this point Rovio can be a little more experimental. That’s why it’s cool to see them partner with Resolution Games for Angry Birds: Isle of Pigs, an augmented reality game and the first traditional 3D mobile Angry Birds game available now for preload.With Apple’s ARKit API, Isle of Pigs plops down a 3D version of a classic Angry Birds pig block fortress on whatever flat surface you choose. Your phone then becomes your first-person slingshot and you physically walk around to find the perfect angle for your shot. Like any time a 2D franchise leaps to 3D, this extra axis dramatically expands your creative options. You can get closer or further away, shoot from above or below, and even use AR to get cheesy with the size of the target itself. It’s fun and the way the AR makes use of real ambient lighting gives the game a tactile, virtual toy box feel, just without the cleanup.Angry Birds and Elder Scrolls were the only unreleased games I played, but Apple also wanted to show off a recent critical iOS darling, the bittersweet romance adventure Florence. And that is a great game. But playing it again made me sad, and not just because the story is all about folks falling in and then out of love. No, I was sad because a premium game like Florence, the gaming equivalent of a boutique indie arthouse film, seems like it’s becoming increasingly rare on iOS regardless of the iPhone’s console-caliber horsepower.The App Store is the largest video game store in the world in terms of revenue, and yet the vast majority of that revenue comes from games that are initially free but then try to get money from you later. Every other game I’ve mentioned so far besides Florence follows that free-to-play, in-app purchase-laden model. Apple can hire all sorts of former games journalists to recommend cool premium games in the redesigned App Store interface. Current games journalists like me can continue to beg for folks to please pay for mobile games. But ultimately the audience and publishers have decided that this inherently exploitative model is the future, and that’s a shame for game design and players alike.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Still, it’s not all bad news. Even if Apple itself still weirdly shies away from making gaming hardware, I used third-party accessories like Gamevice MFi controllers and Audeze positional audio headphones that do provide a higher-quality gaming experience to those that want it.Even beyond this event recent news stories like Nintendo explicitly demanding their mobile partners to ease up on micro-transactions or the GameClub startup trying to preserve old mobile games give me hope for the future of the App Store. And ironically enough, the work needed to make games that take advantage of modern iPhone specs is apparently encouraging some developers to get back into making AAA console games that require basically the same amount of effort.But if you’re one of the millions of players who like games on the App Store just the way they are, Apple wants you to know they are going to look and run even better on your new iPhone. For more on gaming from companies you wouldn’t expect it from, here’s why Google is probably making a video game console. iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro Have More Cameras, More ProblemsApple Arcade Launches Next Week Stay on targetlast_img read more

Venezuela poll Chavez leading rival by 10 points

first_imgAdding to the uncertainty ahead of the vote is the large segment of voters, in some polls more than 10 percent, who describe themselves as undecided or who don’t reveal which candidate they plan to support.In Venezuela nowadays, people seem to view it as normal for there to be a “war of the polls” and don’t appear to be swayed one way or the other by the surveys, said Ignacio Avalos, director of the Venezuelan Electoral Observatory, a vote monitoring group.“Part of the election campaign is about making people think you’re the one who’s going to win and generating a positive effect,” Avalos said. Despite the conflicting surveys, he said, “I have the impression that the results are going to be close, that it’s going to be an election decided by a narrow margin.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) “The variation between the polls is so big that there are some that say Chavez is winning by 30 points and others that say he’s losing by almost 10 points,” said Angel Alvarez, a political science professor at Central University of Venezuela. “Most people don’t believe in any of the polls anymore because they see so much variability that they say somebody is lying or everybody is lying, and on top of that … there’s been a lot of skepticism about the quality of the polls to predict results.”Many polls in the country are conducted using face-to-face interviews with people at their homes, and firms typically release details of their methodologies, including how interview questions are framed. In some cases, though, pollsters haven’t released full details.Datanalisis is widely considered one of the country’s leading polling firms. It has had a record of accuracy in past elections and has earned respect from both political camps with its monthly surveys. The pollster accurately gauged that Chavez was leading ahead of his last re-election victory in 2006, when he won with 63 percent of the vote.Chavez’s approval ratings have slipped since then, and he has been spending heavily on social programs and public housing construction this year seeking to shore up support while facing a vigorous challenge by Capriles. Comments   Share   Sponsored Stories Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Associated PressCARACAS, Venezuela (AP) – President Hugo Chavez held a 10-point lead over rival Henrique Capriles in one of the final polls ahead of Venezuela’s Oct. 7 election, but the survey released Tuesday showed the challenger narrowing the gap.The poll by Datanalisis, one of Venezuela’s most respected polling firms, found that about 49 percent said they intend to vote for Chavez and about 39 percent said they plan to vote for Capriles. 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Venezuelans have been bombarded with widely varying poll results ahead of the vote, and some pollsters haven’t been open about discussing their sources of funding or political leanings.Some political surveys, including those conducted by the pollster GIS XXI, run by Chavez’s former justice minister Jesse Chacon, have repeatedly shown the president with a lead of more than 20 percent, and have been touted on state television.Other polls, such as those of Consultores 21 and Varianzas, have shown Capriles either roughly even with Chavez or slightly ahead.A survey released by Varianzas on Tuesday indicated a close race, with about 50 percent saying they plan to vote for Chavez and 48 percent siding with Capriles. The Varianzas poll consulted 2,000 people between Sept. 7 and 20, and had an error margin of about 2 percent, said Rafael Delgado, the company’s director. He said the survey was financed by a private group, which he declined to reveal.Meanwhile, state television broadcast the results of a survey by another company, International Consulting Services, saying Chavez had a lead of nearly 20 percentage points. The source of funding for that poll was unclear.The wide differences in results have led many Venezuelans to doubt the accuracy of polls. The vital role family plays in society Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Top Stories About 11 percent didn’t reveal a preference, said Luis Vicente Leon, who heads the polling firm.The results showed Capriles narrowing the 46-31 percent lead that Chavez held in June’s poll by the same company.Leon said it was the final poll Datanalisis plans to release publicly before the vote. It’s possible the candidates’ percentages may already have shifted somewhat since the survey was carried out weeks ago.The poll questioned 1,600 people between Aug. 25 and Sept. 5, and had a margin of error of about 2 percentage points. It was paid for a group of about 100 clients, including businesses as well as government entities.Leon said Capriles’ active campaigning in about 260 towns across the country has had an impact.Chavez, in contrast, has concentrated on a smaller number of campaign rallies, and has been less active after more than a year of cancer treatments including surgeries, radiation and chemotherapy.Even though Chavez has said he’s now cancer-free, Leon said the president’s campaign clearly has been affected by his health problems.He said that after nearly 14 years in office, Chavez for the first time will face a strong rival and that no other opposition candidate has achieved such support in pre-election polls when facing Chavez. The pollster also cautioned that changes in public opinion can still occur in the less than two weeks before the Oct. 7 vote.

Two suspected burglars remanded updated

first_imgTwo men from Georgia aged 29 and 34 were remanded on Tuesday for three days for allegedly stealing from a house in Kato Paphos on Monday.Police said they were informed on Monday evening by the owner of the house, who is currently abroad, that he was alerted by a home alarm connected to his phone and through which he could see on camera two men robbing his residence.When police cars arrived at the scene, the two men jumped over the fence of the house and started running towards fields.
