Inequalities exacerbate climate impacts on poor and vulnerable people – new UN

In the past 20 years, 4.2 billion people have been affected by weather-related disasters, including a significant loss of lives. Developing countries are the most affected by climate change impacts. Low-income countries suffered the greatest losses, including economic costs estimated at 5 per cent of gross domestic product. The report argues that while climate adaptation and resilience are overshadowed by mitigation in climate discussions, they are vital for addressing climate change and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Specifically, the report found that families living in poverty systematically occupy the least desirable land to damage from climate hazards, such as mud slides, periods of abnormally hot water, water contamination and flooding. Climate change has the potential to worsen their situation and thereby worsen pre-existent inequalities. The report shows that structural inequalities increase the exposure of vulnerable groups to climate hazards. According to the latest data, 11 per cent of the world’s population lived in a low-elevation coastal zone in 2000. Many of them were poor and compelled to live in floodplains because they lacked the resources to live in safer areas. The data also underscore that in many countries in South and East Asia, and Latin America and the Caribbean, many people have no other option than to erect their dwellings on precarious hill slopes. The report also found a larger concentration of poor and marginalized groups in arid, semi-arid and dry sub-humid aridity zones which cover about 40 per cent of the Earth’s land surface. About 29 per cent of the world’s population live in those areas and are facing additional challenges owing to climate change. Transformative policies for addressing root causes According to the report, building resilience to climate change provides an opportunity to focus resources on reducing long entrenched inequalities that make people disproportionately vulnerable to climate hazards. The best climate adaptation policies, the report states, are good development policies that strengthen people’s capacity to cope with and adapt to climate hazards in the present and in the medium term. Looking ahead, the report recommends the use of improved access to climate projections, modern information and communications technologies, and geographical information systems to strengthen national capacity to assess impacts of climate hazards and policy options statistically. The report voices a concern that international resources to support climate change resilience are insufficient. At last year’s Paris climate conference, informally known as COP21, countries committed to setting a goal of at least $100 billion per year for climate change mitigation and adaptation activities in developing countries. However, adaptation costs alone range from $70 billion to $100 billion per year by 2050 in the developing countries, and these figures are likely to underestimate real costs, according to the report. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development calls for transformative policies to deliver on our collective promise to build a life of dignity for all on a cleaner, greener planet. “The challenges are enormous, but the world possesses the know-how, tools and wealth needed to build a climate-resilient future – a future free from poverty, hunger, discrimination and injustice,” the Secretary-General stressed in the report, noting the importance of the enabling policy environment as well as the support of the international community. “Sadly, the people at greater risk from climate hazards are the poor, the vulnerable and the marginalized who, in many cases, have been excluded from socioeconomic progress,” noted UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the World Economic and Social Survey 2016: Climate Change Resilience – an Opportunity for Reducing Inequalities, produced by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA). “We have no time to waste – and a great deal to gain – when it comes to addressing the socioeconomic inequalities that deepen poverty and leave people behind,” he added. Speaking to reporters at UN Headquarters in New York on the launch of the report, the UN Assistant Secretary-General for Economic Development Lenni Montiel said: “Persistent inequalities in access to assets, opportunities, political voice and participation, and in some cases, outright discriminations leave large group of people and community disproportionally exposed and vulnerable to climate hazards.” He added that through transformative policies, the government can “address the root causes of inequalities, to reduce the vulnerabilities of people to climate hazards, building their longer term resilience.” On transformative policies, the Chief of Development Strategy and Policy at UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Diana Alarcon, said such policies could help build climate change resilience, close inequality gaps, provide access to financial services, to diversification of the livelihoods, to quality education and health and social security. She added: “it is that kind of transformation that leads to development.” While there is considerable anecdotal evidence that the poor and the vulnerable suffer greater harm from climate-related disasters, the report determined that much of the harm is not by accident, but that it is due to the failure of governments to close the development gaps that leave large population groups at risk. In Nepal, mountain infrastructure such as hydropower plants, roads, bridges and communication systems are at risk with climate change and more variability in water runoff.

HIV prevention response inadequate – PANCAP

Although significant progress has been made in eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV, available data for the period 2015 to 2017 showed that HIV-infected pregnant women receiving Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) to reduce HIV transmission declined from 92 per cent in 2014 to 79 per cent in 2015 and 75 per cent in 2016 and 2017 respectively, illustrating a significant decrease that requires investigation.Nonetheless, there has been progress in placing more people living with HIV on treatment, however, much more needs to be done to increase the numbers and to retain people on treatment, PANCAP reported.Financing decreasingAccording to PANCAP, the Global financial resources to support the HIV epidemic have been decreasing since 2011.“However, domestic financing has improved during the implementation of the CRSF 2014 – 2018. UNAIDS 2018, noted that domestic resources increased between 2006 – 2017 by 124 per cent, while international resources declined by 16 per cent”. As of the end of 2017, domestic resources were contributing significantly to the cost of ART and the overall treatment programme.  Despite this trend, national resources to support services to achieve prevention continue to be low, with the implication that the gains could be reversed if this gap is not quickly filled,” the organisation explained. read more

European space mission to explore strange changes in Earths magnetism

first_imgThe satellites were transferred to the launch pad by train yesterday [Image: ESA]The three satellites in the Swarm constellation, due to lift off on Friday from Russia’s Plesetsk Cosmodrome aboard a Rockot launcher, aim at tasting the magnetic soup and discerning its ingredients.Their long, sleek design gives them a slight look of a “Star Wars” fighter.Each 470-kilo craft is due to operate at extremely low altitudes — two will fly initially at 460 km, reduced after four years to just 300 km — where there are lingering molecules of atmosphere.The third will start at 530 km to offer a different angle of view.The satellites will each extend a four-metre boom on the end of which are perched instruments to measure the geomagnetic field’s strength, orientation and fluctuations.The arm is designed to isolate the instruments as much as possible from the magnetic “noise” from the satellite’s own operational equipment — the battery, communications unit and so on.“The biggest challenge was to deliver a product that can measure the magnetic field to extremely fine detail,” said Zaglauer.What emerges could not only unlock fundamental knowledge about the magnetic field, but also improve navigational accuracy on Earth as well as improve satellite design, he said.- © AFP, 2013Read: Aircraft-mounted cameras capture stunning views of polar regionsAlso Commander Chris Hadfield is coming to Ireland The three ‘Swarm’ satellites are prepared for launch [Image: ESA]Polarity switches occur around every 200,000 to 300,000 years, according to telltale magnetic signatures found in ancient sediments.They are believed to occur when iron atoms in lava spewed by volcanoes adopt a polarity and retain it after the rock has solidified. Eventually a planetary tipping point is reached.“Reversals are a slow process and do not happen with any regularity,” the European Space Agency says.“Nevertheless, the last time this happened was about 780,000 years ago, so we are now overdue for a reversal.”Complicating the picture is the fact that magnetism does not only come from deep within the planet.Minerals in Earth’s crust also contribute, as do the ionosphere (between 85 and 600 kilometres above the Earth) and the magnetosphere, about 60,000 to 120,000 kilometres away.Another contribution, albeit rather a weak one, is the sea, because salt water is conductive.Nor is the field the same everywhere.Scattered across South America and the South Atlantic are locations where it is weak — so much so that the lack of a shield against radiation has even affected electronics on a low-altitude satellite.“The magnetic field is a very complex phenomenon which changes in time and space,” said Mioara Mandea of France’s National Centre of Space Studies.“We have identified various sources but, at a given point on the surface, they all get mixed together.” EUROPE WILL THIS week launch a trio of hi-tech satellites to explore something that may seem utterly mundane: Earth’s magnetic field.After all, magnetism has been with us for billions of years.We harness it in innumerable ways, in navigation and electrical devices. What’s new?Well, plenty, actually.If all goes well, the €230 million Swarm mission will explain some of the weird things happening to the planet’s magnetism.And they are more than just curiosities.“Earth’s magnetic field is a very important thing. It makes life possible on Earth by providing shelter against radiation from space,” said Albert Zaglauer, project manager at Astrium, which made the three satellites.The field is fickle, he said.“The magnetic pole is changing, and the magnetic field is changing too. Why?”Earth’s magnetism derives from superheated liquid iron and nickel, which swirl in the outer core about 3,000 kilometres beneath the surface.Like a spinning dynamo, this subterranean metal ocean generates electrical currents and thus a magnetic field.But contrary to what many may think, the field is not constant and immutable.For one thing, the well-known gap between Earth’s magnetic north pole and its geographical north is growing.Since 2001, the gap has been widening at the rate of 65 km per year, compared with just 10 km per year in estimates in the early 1990s.In addition, the magnetic field has been weakening. Since the mid-19th century it has lost around 15 percent of its strength.So what’s going on?Some experts wonder if this is a prelude to something really big: a reversal of magnetic polarity.last_img read more

HTC confirms free 5GB Dropbox storage for all Android phones

first_imgLast month it came to light that HTC had done a very clever deal with Dropbox. In the face of Apple launching iCloud, and Microsoft already having SkyDrive, HTC decided to let anyone with one of their HTC phones have 5GB of free Dropbox cloud storage.At the time, we thought that such an offer would only be made to forthcoming HTC handsets running Sense 3.5 starting with the Rhyme, but a tweet from the company has suggested otherwise.Any doubt that HTC really does mean all its Android handsets was removed when ConnorRobertsUK asked the obvious question “all phones or all new phones?”. HTC’s response:While limiting the freebie to new devices may have been the original idea to push sales, it looks like HTC has had a change of heart. By offering it to all Android phones it will certainly be met with cheers from existing owners. It could also make that upgrade to another HTC device all the more easier for them.As for Dropbox, I’m sure they prefer it if all HTC Android phone owners are offered the service. It means more users, and therefore more chance some of them will upgrade to a paid-for account with 50GB or 100GB of storage.HTC hasn’t explained how it will roll out this offer yet, but it makes sense to already have the Dropbox app downloaded and an account created for when it does. Hopefully it’s just a case of associating your phone with the account somehow to trigger the extra 3GB of storage above Dropbox’s standard, free 2GB offering.via Pocket-lintlast_img read more

Kim Jong Un Issues Statement On Trump A Frightened Dog Barks Louder

first_imgAhn Young-joon/APTV screens at a store in Seoul, South Korea, show news coverage of the latest exchange of insults between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has weighed in on the heightened tensions on the Korean peninsula, with a personal analysis of President Trump’s Tuesday speech at the United Nations General Assembly.Trump’s speech, which was notable for its apocalyptic rhetoric — it vowed to “totally destroy” North Korea and its 25 million people if the United States had to defend itself and its allies — aroused greater fears of military miscalculation that could lead to catastrophe.Kim, in a lengthy statement released by North Korean state media KCNA, used the first person to respond to Trump’s own fiery statements, which is rather unusual and exceptional, says Martyn Williams, a longtime North Korea media specialist who runs the site North Korea Tech.“This is the translation of a direct message from Kim to President Trump. I don’t think I’ve seen anything like this before from Kim Jong Un, and it could be a first for North Korean media,” Williams says.In the message, Kim starts off bemused, saying he expected boilerplate talking points from Trump at the U.N. “But,” Kim says in the statement, “he made unprecedented rude nonsense one has never heard from any of his predecessors. A frightened dog barks louder.”Kim then goes on to lecture Trump, saying he should better read the room and practice prudence when making these types of international speeches, then reminds Trump that the pledge to “totally destroy” a nation state and its people would undermine the very point of the United Nations, which is to maintain global order and peace.“The mentally deranged behavior of the U.S. president openly expressing on the U.N. arena the unethical will to ‘totally destroy’ a sovereign state, beyond the boundary of threats of regime change or overturn of social system, makes even those with normal thinking faculty think about discretion and composure.”Kim then builds to his climax, which points out that rather than scaring him off his path, Trump’s threats to North Korea actually justify Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions. (North Korea maintains that it is developing nuclear capabilities to defend itself against the United States. U.S. diplomats, including current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, have stressed that America does not seek “regime change” in North Korea, but Trump’s rhetoric often confuses that policy.)Here’s Kim Jong Un:“After taking office Trump has rendered the world restless through threats and blackmail against all countries in the world. He is unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country, and he is surely a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire, rather than a politician. His remarks which described the U.S. option through straightforward expression of his will have convinced me, rather than frightening or stopping me, that the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last.”The statement ends with an unspecified threat from Kim Jong Un to make Trump “pay dearly” and “face results beyond his expectation.” But we should caution that North Korea’s threats on the United States are common and part of its propaganda game.If you read North Korean propaganda daily, Kim appeared reasonably measured, signaling that by saying “I am now thinking hard about what response [Trump] could have expected when he allowed such eccentric words to trip off his tongue.”Williams, the North Korea watcher, says he’s not alarmed.“[The threats] are par for the course, especially when dealing with a country like North Korea, and the country has made much more explicit threats in the past. I almost wonder if we should be happy that at least they are talking to each other now … even if it is to trade insults,” Williams says.And we should mention that Kim also reintroduces an old English vocabulary word into the American vernacular before he wraps up.“I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U. S. dotard with fire,” he says. Dotard, which according to Merriam-Webster means “a person in his or her dotage — “a state or period of senile decay marked by decline of mental poise and alertness.”The term is now trending online.Jihye Lee contributed to this post.Copyright 2017 NPR.

Sanjeev Kapoor meets great expectations

first_imgHe’s a masterchef who has tempted food aficionados with his culinary skills for well over 20 years. No wonder then that when you visit a restaurant by Sanjeev Kapoor, you enter it with great expectations — and it’s a fulfilling experience for the taste buds and ambience.The menu — both food and drinks — boasts of creations, handpicked by Kapoor himself. And every item savoured hits the right note.“We have a lot to offer at Sura Vie. Besides Sanjeev Kapoor’s famous dishes, our menu has Continental, Chinese, Oriental and Indian cuisine. But more stress has been laid on Continental,” said Chef Naresh of the restaurant.   Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“Here we give special attention to quantity and quality as we have to live up to masterchef Sanjeev Kapoor’s name and reputation without fail,” he added.Located centrally at the capital’s Janpath area, it’s easy to access and welcomes you with perfectly balanced sources of light. Chef Naresh planned a perfect dinner, which began with an appetising ginger mint lemonade and a ‘Spicy Affair’! Well, spicy because it was a concoction of guava and pineapple juice, spiced up with red chilli powder on the glass’ rim. This one truly justified its name. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixFor the growling stomach, try going for the stir fried vegetable nest, which comprise crispy noodles with a filling of baby corn, capsicum, red bell pepper, broccoli, mushrooms, carrots…and basically, it’s a vegetarian’s delight. If you’re a fan of hummus and pita bread, you can instantly fall in love with a platter of three different dips and pita pockets. With a very fancy presentation, the plate had a pool of hummus, cucumber dip and a dip made from brinjal. The non-vegetarian fare was a winner, especially the tandoori fish, which melt in the mouth the moment it took its rightful place —on the salivating tongue! With good quantity, the platter had a Basa fish cut into squares of scrumptious pieces.The experience is made ‘tastier’ with its soothing lounge music. Back to the palette! Don’t leave without digging into the plum chicken.Even if you’re not a fan of the sweet flavour in food, this dish may surprise you as the plum sauce does not overpower the chicken’s individual taste. Before you think of wrapping up your meal, don’t forget the dessert. The apple struddle, with kiwi sauce on the side, is one of the limited offerings, but surpassed the great expectations yet again.last_img read more

Israeli leader says Iran warning reverberates

first_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Associated PressNEW YORK (AP) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Friday that his stern warning to stop Iran from going nuclear “reverberates” around the world and could ultimately prevent the Islamic Republic from getting a nuclear bomb.Speaking ahead of a meeting with his Canadian counterpart, Netanyahu said Iran’s uranium enrichment was the “only discernible and vulnerable part of their nuclear program” and his demand before the United Nations to draw a red line on its process could force Iran to back down. “I tried to say something yesterday that I think reverberates now around the world,” he said, “and that is to translate the agreement and principle of stopping Iran from developing nuclear weapons to practice.”On Thursday, Netanyahu laid out before the U.N. General Assembly his most detailed plea for global action against Iran, saying the world had until next summer at the latest to stop Iran from getting a bomb. In his speech, the Israeli leader demonstratively flashed a diagram of a cartoon-like bomb showing the progress Iran has made, pulled out a red marker and drew a line across what he said was a threshold Iran was approaching and which Israel could not tolerate _ 90 percent of the way to the uranium enrichment needed to make an atomic bomb.Israel considers a nuclear-armed Iran to be an existential threat, citing Iranian denials of the Holocaust, its calls for Israel’s destruction, its development of missiles capable of striking the Jewish state and its support for hostile Arab militant groups.Netanyahu has repeatedly argued that time is running out to stop Iran from becoming a nuclear power and that the threat of force must be seriously considered. Israeli leaders have hinted they may strike Iran to prevent it from going nuclear. Early signs of cataracts in your parents and how to help Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Top Stories President Barack Obama has vowed not to allow Iran to attain nuclear weapons and has said the U.S. would be prepared to use force as a last resort. But he has urged restraint, saying there is more time to diplomacy. His administration has urgently sought to hold off Israeli military action, which would likely result in the U.S. being pulled into the conflict.Netanyahu’s persistent demands for red lines have put the two leaders at odds. Netanyahu tried to smooth over the differences in his U.N. address, making a point to thank Obama for his firm stance. The reconciliation continued Friday with a phone call between them.“The two leaders underscored that they are in full agreement on the shared goal of preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon,” the White House said in a statement.Netanyahu also spoke to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney during his brief stay in New York. The two are old friends and colleagues and they are both backed politically by Jewish-American billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson. Romney has harshly criticized Obama for throwing Israel “under the bus” and Netanyahu’s perceived preference of the Republican in the upcoming elections has further strained relations with Obama.center_img Sponsored Stories Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Comments   Share   Netanyahu’s fiery rhetoric on Iran suggested he may be considering military action before the U.S. elections, against Obama’s wishes. His 2013 deadline appeared to be a concession, but in an interview with Israel’s Channel 10 TV he refused to commit.“You’ve never heard me talking about dates. I spoke about the critical stage that Iran must not be allowed to complete,” he said, in an interview aired Friday. “I did not limit or reject for a moment Israel’s right to defend itself at any time.”Netanyahu’s lone scheduled meeting Friday was with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper – a close ally who recently expelled the Iranian ambassador from his country. Netanyahu praised Harper as a “real statesman” and thanked him for standing by Israel.“I think that what you did, severing ties with Iran, was not only an act of statesmanship, but an act of moral clarity,” he said.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Singapore opposition leaders bankruptcy annulled

first_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of Lee, modern Singapore’s founding father, and Goh have frequently sued opposition leaders and other critics for defamation. A report published by New York-based Human Rights Watch in January criticized the government for resorting to charges of contempt of court, criminal and civil defamation as well as sedition to rein in its critics. Among those sued have been publications such as The Economist, the International Herald Tribune and Far Eastern Economic Review.Lee was Singapore’s prime minister from 1959 to 1990, when he handed over power to Goh. Lee continued to work for the government, first as “senior minister,” a non-executive advisory post created for him, and from 2004 until 2011 as “minister mentor.” Goh was prime minister from 1990 to 2004, when the prime ministership went to Lee’s son, Lee Hsien Loong.Chee, a trained neuropsychologist, raised the S$30,000 primarily through donations and proceeds from the sale of his books on politics. He was informed in September that Lee and Goh were willing to accept the reduced amount.“As the creditors have not objected to Dr. Chee’s debt settlement proposal, it is deemed that they have accepted the proposal, as provided for under the Bankruptcy Act,” the statement from the Insolvency and Public Trustee’s Office said.

Earlier this year his request to attend the Oslo Freedom Forum _ a conference on human rights where he was scheduled to be a guest speaker _ was denied.“The important thing (is that) being discharged from bankruptcy means it will allow me to plan and lead the party into the next general election,” Chee told the AP.“The big strategy that we’re banking on right now is to come up with shadow policies on health care and housing as alternatives to that of the government.

The two had sued him for defamation for comments he made against them during the 2001 general election.The development means Chee, 50, will be able to travel outside the country freely and also contest the next elections, which are due in 2016.Some commentators saw the concession by Lee and Goh as a political maneuver because allowing Chee to contest the elections could split the fragmented opposition’s votes further at a time the ruling People Action Party has lost much popular support because of rising prices and an influx of foreigners.“It could be that Lee Kuan Yew has mellowed, but it’s hard to believe that he has changed because it doesn’t fit his character,” said respected political commentator and former newspaper editor P.N. Balji.“The other possibility … could be to `muddy the waters’ especially for the coming general elections. Chee’s party and the (other opposition) Workers’ Party do not see eye to eye and there might be a split in votes for the opposition,” Balji said. Top Stories Bottoms up!

first_imgArizona Cardinals tight end Ricky Seals-Jones (86) celebrates his touchdown against the Chicago Bears with J.J. Nelson, left, D.J. Humphries (74) and Mason Cole, right, during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ralph Freso) From Cole jokingly screaming to guard Justin Pugh dueling back-and-forth with Humphries, it’s a tight group.Related LinksWeek 6 injury report: Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota VIkingsBehind Enemy Lines: Vikings host Cardinals coming off win over EaglesRB David Johnson is still the foundation of the Cardinals’ offenseCardinals feed off high standards for DE Chandler JonesThey share a similar mentality as well. When the Cardinals picked up their first win of the season on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, the offensive line sat together after the game — like they usually will — and collected their thoughts on the performance.“It was still so much stuff left out there for us, just speaking for our group specifically — that was the sense I got from everybody,” Humphries said. “Everyone was really excited about the win but everyone was also really focused on figuring out ways to fix those little plays that they had, and those moments that they had — mental errors and stuff like that — so that was really refreshing.”That group’s biggest job, of course, is to protect the quarterback. That’s a job that has gained even more importance since first-round pick Josh Rosen took over the starting position, as Rosen is now the short- and long-term answer for the Cardinals at the position.Cole thinks the progress is coming along.“I tihnk we’ve been improving every week,” he said. “The biggest thing is, especially on the road, is communicating. That’s been our focus since day one and just trying to communicate with everyone up and down the line and make sure we’re all on the same page. If we’re all on the same page, we’ll be good.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Beyond that responsibility, the Cardinals’ biggest weapon is running back David Johnson, who has had a slow start to the season. Johnson can only run where the holes are, and that’s on Humphries’ and Cole’s group.For Cole, it comes back to its overall improvement.“Week-by-week we are getting better and better, and I’m just looking forward to seeing our progression and keep going,” he said. Every position group in the NFL has its own quirks, but none more so than the offensive line.Rookie center Mason Cole and left tackle D.J. Humphries provided a glimpse into the dynamic between the group on the Big Red Rage.“It’s really funny how we got so many different guys that weren’t together last year and we mesh together so well so fast,” Humphries said on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories 2 Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellinglast_img read more
