Zimbabwe UN envoy stresses urgency of helping millions facing food shortage

While donors have been responsive, only $82 million – or one-third of the UN’s $285 million appeal for Zimbabwe – has been received to help to country overcome widespread food shortages, caused in part by natural disasters and policy-related issues.Mr. Morris’ urgent appeal was made after visiting Bindura, north of the capital Harare, where thousands of people gathered for a food distribution. The Special Envoy arrived in Zimbabwe on Wednesday as part of a two-week UN mission to the six countries affected by the crisis.”The magnitude of hardship was engraved on the faces I saw. I was struck by the tragic stories people told,” said Mr. Morris, who is accompanied by Carolyn McAskie, Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator for the UN Office of the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), as well as representatives from several UN agencies. “Clearly every day is a massive struggle to survive and the situation will only worsen over the months ahead.”During meetings with key government ministers, Mr. Morris and his team focused discussions on building cooperation between the international aid community and Harare. Other pressing issues included the importation of food aid containing genetically modified organisms, the urgent need for more non-governmental partners to help implement programmes, the situation of unemployed farm workers, as well as the politicization of humanitarian assistance.”Overall, discussions with the political and humanitarian players have been conducted in an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual understanding about the severe crisis at hand. I feel encouraged that progress has been made,” said Mr. Morris. read more

Boeing predicts a need for 43,560 airplanes worldwide by 2034, double the existing fleet FILE – In this Jan. 17, 2013 file photo, a line of 787 jets are parked nose-to-tail at Paine Field in Everett, Wash. In the next 20 years, global airlines will need 38,050 new airplanes, jet manufacturer Boeing said in its annual market forecast Thursday, June 11, 2015. That’s up 3.5 percent from last year’s projection. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson, File) by Scott Mayerowitz, The Associated Press Posted Jun 11, 2015 8:20 am MDT Last Updated Jun 11, 2015 at 11:30 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – Demand for new airplanes around the world will continue to soar as millions of people in developing nations take to the skies for the first time.In the next 20 years, global airlines will need 38,050 new airplanes jet manufacturer Boeing said in its annual market forecast. That’s up 3.5 per cent from last year’s projection.In order to fill that demand, Boeing, its rival Airbus and smaller manufacturers like Embraer and Bombardier will have to build more than five new planes a day, every day for the next two decades.These new planes will help to double the number of aircraft worldwide from 21,600 to 43,560 in 2034. Fifty-eight per cent of the 38,050 airplanes delivered over that time will be to accommodate growth. Boeing estimates that the number of passengers will grow by 4.9 per cent each year. The rest of the new planes will replace existing aircraft.Nearly two out of every five new planes will head to Asia.The current jet buying spree has been driven by cheap credit and relatively high fuel prices, making the economics work for purchasing new, fuel-efficient planes. But as fuel prices have fallen and interest rates are expected to climb, some aviation experts have warned that airlines might continue to fly older jets rather than buy expensive new ones.Boeing says it isn’t seeing that.“The commercial airplane market continues to be strong and resilient,” Randy Tinseth, vice-president of marketing for Boeing’s commercial airplane division said in statement. “As we look forward, we expect the market to continue to grow and the demand for new aircraft to be robust.”__Scott Mayerowitz can be reached at http://twitter.com/GlobeTrotScott read more

Nearly half of Canadians arent taking steps to meet financial goals CIBC

Nearly half of Canadians aren’t taking steps to meet financial goals: CIBC survey by The Canadian Press Posted Dec 29, 2016 2:00 am MDT Last Updated Dec 29, 2016 at 6:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – A new report from CIBC says about half of Canadians aren’t taking sufficient steps to stay on top of their financial priorities in the coming year.A poll conducted this month for the Toronto-based bank found that 48 per cent of respondents didn’t plan to cut back spending on non-essential items in order to meet goals that include eliminating debt, keeping up with bills and growing their investments.Coming in at 28 per cent, debt repayment was the top financial priority of those surveyed — with the vast majority saying their biggest concerns were credit cards and lines of credit.Among those who incurred new debt over the past 12 months, almost one-third of those surveyed said the primary reason for overspending was day-to-day expenses beyond their monthly income.Yet, the poll also found that only 26 per cent of the respondents said they will actually set a household budget to help them stay on track with a financial plan.The CIBC survey was conducted online in early December among 1,507 Canadian adults who are Angus Reid Forum panellists.Other key findings from the poll showed that keeping up with bills was the No. 2 priority among 16 per cent of those surveyed, followed by growing investments for 11 per cent.Putting aside money for a vacation was a key financial priority for eight per cent of respondents, while establishing an emergency fund was a top goal for three per cent.The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not randomly sample the population.According to the latest data from Statistics Canada, the ratio of household credit market debt to adjusted disposable income crept up to 166.9 per cent in the third quarter, up from 166.4 per cent in the second quarter.That means, on average, Canadians owed $1.67 in credit market debt—mortgages, other loans and consumer credit—for every dollar of disposable income. read more

UNArab League envoy apologizes to Syrian people over stalemate in peace talks

“I am very, very sorry, and I apologize to the Syrian people that…we haven’t helped them very much,” said Mr. Brahimi, the United Nations/Arab League Joint Special Representative, telling a press conference that while no date was set to resume the talks, he presented both sides with an agenda for the next round, “so that we don’t lose another week or 10 days as we have this time.” This is the second round of UN-sponsored direct talks between Government and opposition representatives – the first set of discussions took place in late January – to end a war which has killed well over 100,000 people and driven nearly 9 million others from their homes since the conflict erupted between President Bashar al-Assad and various groups seeking his ouster nearly three years ago. “People are dying, the country is being destroyed. If this track aims at helping the Syrian people, then of course, the faster we achieve tangible results, the better,” Mr. Brahimi said in response to a question, but added he has made it clear that “everybody needs to go back to their base and we will contact each other to determine the date [of the next round]. The talks have so far yielded only modest cooperation between the sides on allowing UN and Syrian Red Crescent relief workers access to thousands of people trapped in the long-besieged Old City of Homs, and Mr. Brahimi said today he felt “the little that has been achieved in Homs gave [the Syrian people] even more hope that maybe this is the beginning of the coming out of this horrible crisis – I apologize to them.” As for next steps, Mr. Brahimi said the parties agreed to his proposal that a new round of talks would focus on violence and terrorism, a transitional governing body, national institutions and national reconciliation. But he acknowledged that the main sticking point persisted: the Government side considers that the most important issue to be combatting terrorism; the opposition considers that the most important issue is forming a transitional governing authority. “We suggested that the first day will be set for discussion on…ending violence and combating terrorism and the second day would be reserved for a discussion on the TGB [transitional governing body],” he explained, but while he had made clear that one day would not give enough time to conclude discussions on either issue, “unfortunately, the Government has refused [this approach], which raises the suspicion of the opposition that in fact the Government doesn’t’ want to discuss the TGB at all.” “I very, very much hope that the two sides will reflect and think a little bit better and come back ready to engage seriously on how to implement the Geneva Communiqué,” he said, referring to the 2012 action plan adopted at the first international meeting in Switzerland on the conflict and the full implementations of which is the basis of the current talks. “The Communiqué helps the two sides, and us sitting between them, to start the long road towards ending this crisis.” Of the fact that the two sides remain at odds over how to tackle his four-point proposal, Mr. Brahimi underscored that while they had “at least” agreed on an agenda: “It is not good for Syria that we come back for another round and fall in the same trap that we have been struggling with this week and most of the first round.” “I think it is better that every side goes back and reflect and take their responsibility: do they want this process to take place or not? I will do the same,” he said, adding that will head to New York to meet with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, as well as United States Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, the initiators of the Geneva talks. He also plans to brief the other permanent five members of the Security Council – China, France and the United Kingdom – as well as the body’s 10 non-permanent members. “So I hope that this time of reflection will lead the Government side in particular to reassure the [opposition] that when they speak of implementing the Geneva Communiqué they do mean that a TGB exercising full executive powers will be the main objective to follow,” said Mr. Brahimi, adding that ending violence and combating terrorism “is extremely important, indispensable.” Asked if he had a specific message for President Assad as the talks wrapped up, Mr. Brahimi said: “My message to everybody involved in this terrible crisis is to think of the Syrian people, to think of the immense suffering that has been imposed on [them], the destruction that has taken place in Syria, and to think of what anyone can contribute to pull Syria out of the ditch in which it has fallen.” To a question about the ongoing commitment of Russia and the US, he said he continued to believe the two countries are important partners with the United Nations. “There is no doubt – and I have said repeatedly- that the United Nations, the Russian Federation and the United States; none of them can turn a blind eye to this huge crisis in Syria.” read more

And why don’t we have a Guardians Vol. 2 trailer for all of us yet? Marvel want its San Diego Comic-Con panel to be different. Whereas other panels had people rotating out from behind a table, Marvel had only chairs. No table means no name tags, as if to subtly say: you know us, we’re the Marvel Cinematic Universe.Kevin Feige started the panel by unveiling a new Marvel Studios fanfare and logo and promising that they only come to Hall H if there is a lot to show… this year, Marvel decided to keep their video goodies inside Hall H.

Also like his comics counterpart, Rooker’s Yondu was sporting a full fin coming up off of his head. The question and answer portion with the cast involved moderator Chris Hardwick probing Kurt Russell about what character he’s playing and Kurt responding: “You’re lucky when you get to play a memorable well-written character and I hope this one is memorable.”The unexpected announcement from a Marvel Studios panel was a video announcement that Guardians of the Galaxy are coming to Disneyland California Adventure in ride from in Galaxy Mission Breakout.

Stephen Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, was in attendance and caused quite a stir when his entrance was accompanied by theatrical smoke. Also from the Doctor Strange cast: Tilda Swinton (The Ancient One), Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, and Benedict Wong.Since Doctor Strange is so close, Marvel showed a clip from the movie where Stephen Strange meets Swinton’s The Ancient One for the first time. While Hall H got the exclusive clip, the internet was given the second trailer:Jon Watts and Tom Holland showed up to promote Spider-Man: Homecoming, which was sort of a surprise because Homecoming is a co-production with Sony Pictures. Homecoming is currently in production in Atlanta, but amazingly, there was footage shown that ended with a reveal of The Vulture swooping down toward the camera. The Vulture is Homecoming’s villain!After the footage, Holland was excited, having not seen the completed Vulture tease before. With that, more Homecoming cast came on stage: Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, and Zendaya. The cast took some photos, then had to return to keep shooting the movie.James Gunn came out next to promote his sequel and final Marvel film to get the spotlight during the panel: Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2. Gunn seemed high energy and suddenly full-costumed Ravagers and recognizable Taserface stormed Hall H.center_img To end the Guardians portion of the show, they debuted a new trailer with a new soundtrack that finally revealed Kurt Russell’s role: Star Lord’s father… Ego the living planet?!?!!We told you so.Not only that, Sylvester Stallone is in this movie!

Colin The Steeler circus is on Mike Tomlin

first_imgThe Steelers have long been one of the most stable franchises in the NFL, but the team has become a circus with Antonio Brown discussing being traded on Twitter, and the team struggling in the first two weeks of the season with an 0-1-1 record. Last season, Ben Roethlisberger publicly questioned Tomlin in the media over the team’s lack of discipline.Colin thinks Mike Tomlin is a good coach, but his loose, player friendly culture is the root cause of the growing dysfunction.When Tomlin was hired, he rode the momentum from the Bill Cowher era to two Super Bowl appearances and a championship, but the team has progressively declined, especially in the playoffs, in the last several years as the momentum has dissipated.Now the circus is in town, and it’s on Tomlin.“As the momentum of Cowher has dissipated and it’s now Mike Tomlin’s team, the offensive stars are calling out Tomlin because his side of the ball isn’t working.”@ColinCowherd on the “circus” surrounding the Steelers pic.twitter.com/4bbXt1e9uj— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) September 19, 2018last_img read more

Many die crossing the deserts, or by sea. More than 10,000 people have been plucked from the Mediterranean off Libya in the last month and 1,700 are feared dead.Traffickers operate networks that provide all sorts of services to smuggle people across borders, including illegal papers for transport by land and sea.“This does not prevent legal migrants from crossing Niger. Those who have legal papers for traveling can cross Niger,” said Zakari Oumarou, the deputy representative for the president’s party in parliament.Justice Minister Marou Amadou said Monday after the law was passed it gives Niger the legal means to punish those profiting from smuggling, while protecting migrants’ rights. He also said it is meant to increase international cooperation.The European Union is on Wednesday to unveil a plan to confront the challenges posed by the massive influx of migrants. According to a draft of the text obtained by The Associated Press, the EU wants to establish a pilot system in Niger to screen migrants, help provide local protection for them and work out resettlement opportunities for those in need. Deploying EU migration attaches to Libya’s neighbors and other African countries is among other proposals. Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
