8 April 2009A United Nations technical assessment mission has arrived in Pakistan to carry out preparatory work for the fact-finding commission being set up to look into the 2007 assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, a spokesperson for the world body said today. In February, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced his intention to establish an independent Commission of Inquiry into the killing, following a request from the Pakistani Government. “I can inform you that the technical assessment mission has arrived in Pakistan, and will return back to New York after a few days to report to the Secretary-General,” UN spokesperson Michele Montas told reporters at UN Headquarters.The three-member Commission of Inquiry, which will be led by Ambassador Heraldo Muñoz of Chile, will have a mandate of a maximum of six months.In a letter sent to the Security Council in February, Mr. Ban noted that it has been agreed that the probe should be “fact-finding in nature,” not expanding into a criminal investigation. The duty of determining criminal responsibility of the perpetrators of the assassination should remain with the Pakistani authorities, he added.

Describing FGM as “a cruel practice” that inflicts emotional harm and preys on girls between infancy and age 15, the most vulnerable members of society, the UN agency chiefs called it a “violation of human rights” that perpetuates the low status of girls and women; and a drag on the well-being of communities and economies.“Yet, it is also something that can be stopped,” UNFPA’s Dr. Natalaia Kanem, and UNICEF’s Henrietta H. Fore said in Tuesday’s statement.“Around the world, momentum to eliminate female genital mutilation is building. Political will, community engagement and targeted investment are changing practices and changing lives,” they added.In countries where both agencies work jointly to end FGM, girls are one-third less likely today to undergo the harmful practice than in 1997.Since 2008, more than 25 million people in some 18,000 communities across 15 countries publicly disavowed the practice, and globally its prevalence has declined by nearly a quarter since 2000.“This is good for girls and young women themselves; it is also good for their families and communities,” the agency heads stressed.Girls who are not subjected to the practice tend to grow up to be healthier and have healthier children, they elaborated, pointing out that they are often “better educated, earn higher incomes and are more empowered to make decisions about their own lives.”The UN agencies also noted that the countries committed to changing the harmful practice reap commensurate benefits.“This is the good news,” they continued. “Yet, population trends in some of the world’s poorest countries where female genital mutilation persists threaten to roll back our progress.”By 2030, more than one-third of births globally will be in the 30 FGM countries – requiring accelerated progress to protect millions at risk.“It is unconscionable that these girls should be added to the 200 million women and girls in the world today who have already endured female genital mutilation. Who already bear the scars, or suffer related complications, or relive harsh memories of pain and betrayal,” they stressed.“Nobody – not the girls, their families or communities – benefits economically or socially in unequal societies where such violence against girls is accepted,” argued the UNICEF and UNFPA chiefs.They maintained that FGM rates can drop rapidly when the issue is taken on by governments, communities and families; when social norms are confronted, village by village; when medical professionals jointly refuse to perform it; when laws make it a crime – and authorities enforce them; when access to health, education and legal services ensure sustainable change; and where girls and women are protected and empowered to make their voices heard.The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recognize that female genital mutilation undermines progress towards a more equal, just and prosperous world, and target by 2030 its elimination.Given the rising number of girls at risk, both agencies call it “a race against trends.”With increased investment, redoubled political commitment, greater community engagement and more empowered women and girls, the agency heads upheld, “it is a race that can be won. And because it can, it must.”“It is high time to eliminate female genital mutilation from the face of the earth forever. It is a task for all of us, and for our common future,” the statement concluded.fullscreen– / 8 For his part, Secretary-General António Guterres called FGM “a gross violation of the human rights of women and girls.”“Without concerted, accelerated action, a further 68 million girls could be subjected to this harmful practice by 2030,” he warned in his message marking the Day.The UN chief pointed out that while several countries with strong political engagement have seen success, the progress is not enough to keep up with population growth, and without immediate action, the number of cases will continue to rise.“Sustainable development cannot be achieved without full respect for the human rights of women and girls,” he upheld, reiterating SDG 5’s target for FMG elimination.He said that together with the European Union, the UN has launched the Spotlight Initiative, a global, multi-year undertaking that aims to create strong partnerships and align efforts to end all forms of violence against women and girls, including female genital mutilation.“With the dignity, health and well-being of millions of girls at stake, there is no time to waste,” underscored the Secretary-General. “Together, we can and must end this harmful practice.”
Rockmore International has a new DTH hammer in its emerging Deep Hole series, the ROK 500DH. This 127-mm range hammer incorporates many new innovations and features characterised in this new Deep Hole class of hammers. It is the first release in this new hammer series and is targeted to drill 140 to 152 mm diameter holes. Designed to increase drilling effectiveness and efficiency in deep hole applications, the ROK 500DH incorporates engineering advancements for drilling in DTH applications such as geothermal, exploration, water-well, and in other mining sectors. Unique drilling requirements in such applications often demand drilled holes exceeding 300 m deep and include high volumes of water, thus presenting great challenges for conventional DTH hammers to drill effectively.The ROK 500DH has been designed specifically to handle such challenges by incorporating new airflow and component design advancements, primarily in the air ports of the wear sleeve and piston.The hammer is rated for use with large compressors: 24.1 bar at 25.2 m3/min; however, it can readily accept greater air volumes and pressures from larger air compressor packages. The upper and lower hammer air chambers of the 500DH have been modified accordingly in order to achieve optimum drilling efficiency. The advanced piston design also offers maximum blow energy with each stroke to the bit, allowing for superior hammer and bit penetration rates in all drilling conditions.A new bit retention system was also developed for this hammer in order to alleviate broken bit heads falling to the bottom of drilled holes when bit shanks fail catastrophically. A new bit shank, the DH500, was developed in conjunction with the new retention system, eliminating the need for bit retaining rings present in conventional hammer designs. The bit is retained in the driver sub by uniquely designed lobes located on the bit shoulder. If in the unlikely event that the bit breaks from the shank body during drilling operations, the bit head may be retracted out of the hole as retained by the lobes on the bit and driver sub, thus eliminating bit retrieval that is often timely and costly.The traditional foot valve, or blow tube component, has also been eliminated in the DH500 shank concept. Foot valve breakages on DTH bit shanks during drilling operations are catastrophic since the hammer will cease to function immediately after such a failure. This is particularly damaging to drill time efficiency if such interruptions occur in deep hole applications, requiring the hammer to be retrieved out the hole for bit replacement. The DH500 shank alleviates such down time risk by the elimination of the foot valve component.Conventional hammers often exhibit low penetration rates when used in deep hole applications when high water volumes exist in the hole while drilling. But due to the design advancements mentioned above, the new ROK 500DH drills exceptionally fast in dry hole conditions as well as under high water volumes exceeding 9.5 litres/s) flow rates at the hole annulus. There is no compromise, therefore, in high drilling penetration rates with or without high water volumes.As with all of Rockmore’s DTH hammers, the 500DH take full advantage of Rockmore’s patented SonicFlow technology, which optimises airflow by simplifying and streamlining the air path to minimise backflow and turbulence, thus delivering more energy to the piston. Optional back reaming buttons on the top sub also contribute to increase hammer life. Field testing of the SonicFlow design was found to result in faster penetration rates and greater overall DTH hammer efficiency.The ROK 500DH has been engineered to withstand the toughest rock drilling conditions. The solid piston design is made from an advanced material that is case hardened, combining high strength with supreme wear resistance. The high frequency, reciprocating piston is designed to strike the bit with maximum force. An innovative design, unique to Rockmore hammers, reduces the number of hammer components, thus reducing the amount of component wear points, making hammer service simpler and less expensive. Unique lead threads on the top sub and driver sub ensure easy coupling and uncoupling of the hammer.

La NASA termine les tests d’atterrissage de la capsule OrionLe 6 janvier dernier, les équipes du Centre de recherche Langley de la NASA ont achevé les tests de la capsule Orion. L’engin doit à terme pouvoir emporter des astronautes dans l’espace. Le 6 janvier dernier, la maquette d’Orion pesant pas moins de 8.165 kilogrammes a effectué son dernier ‘splash’ dans le bassin d’impact du Centre de recherche Langley de la NASA. Ceci a marqué la fin de près de six mois de tests destinés à simuler différents scénarios d’atterrissage et à prendre en compte différentes vitesses, déploiements de parachute, angles d’entrée, niveaux de l’eau ou encore conditions de vents qu’Orion pourrait rencontrer en atterrissant dans l’océan Pacifique. À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESAImaginée par les équipes de la NASA, la capsule Orion faisait partie du programme Constellation qui a été abandonné fin 2010. Mais malgré l’arrêt, l’agence a décidé de poursuivre le développement de l’engin destiné à devenir le prochain véhicule d’exploration spatiale. La capsule est censée à terme pouvoir emporter des astronautes dans l’espace, maintenir l’équipage durant le voyage spatial, réagir en cas d’urgence et assurer une ré-entrée et un atterrissage en toute sécurité. Dans ce but, le test du 6 janvier représentait le pire scénario d’atterrissage que la capsule pourrait éprouver. La simulation d’impact s’est ainsi notamment faite tous parachutes déployés à une vitesse approximative de 75,6 kilomètres par heure, avant que la ‘capsule’ n’aborde le bassin et reprenne une position stable. D’après les experts, il est peu probable qu’un tel scénario se produise mais il est essentiel de le tester pour la validation des modèles analytiques, explique un communiqué de l’agence.

Pending approval from the RCA, the rate change will be effective October 1. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Homer Electric Association (HEA) announced on Friday that members will likely see a rate increase effective October 1. HEA has submitted a filing with the Regulatory Commission of Alaska (RCA) that requested anincrease in the Cost of Power Adjustment (COPA) from $0.07270 per kilowatt-hour to $0.08151perkilowatt-hour. According to a release from HEA, the increase is in anticipation of the unavailability of HEA’s Nikiski Plant due to routine turnaround maintenance and inspection in October. This will require HEA to temporarily obtain power from other sources not as cost efficient as Nikiski. If approved, the new rate will mean an increase of $4.85 per month for the average HEA residentialmember using 550-kilowatt hours a month.
Nationwide, the federal court system will run out of money on Jan. 31, on what would be the shutdown’s 41st day. But some court cases have already been postponed or suspended.U.S. Courts say they have enough money saved up to continue operating for a few more days. But, after Jan. 31, those funds will run out and employees will be working without pay.Stephanie Lawley, the chief deputy clerk for the U.S. District Court in Alaska, said most Alaskans may not notice anything.“Throughout the District of Alaska, court operations will continue on a daily basis as they traditionally do,” Lawley said. “You would not be seeing any change in court operations. We will remain open for business as usual.”That may be true, but with one big exception. U.S. District Court Chief Judge Timothy Burgess, the top federal judge in Alaska, has already ordered suspension of civil cases in which the federal government is a party.Hearings in a few criminal cases were cancelled earlier this month, then rescheduled as U.S. Courts recently extended available funding to Jan. 31.In Alaska, there are two judges and three magistrate judges, plus four senior judges who continue working and hearing cases even though they’re past the typical retirement age.There are also employees working in various other capacities at five federal courthouses in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Ketchikan and Nome.Federal public defenders are a lot like their counterparts in the state court system. They are assigned to represent clients who cannot afford to pay for their own attorney.But federal defenders’ salaries are paid by U.S. Courts. At least until end of the month, anyway.Assistant Federal Defender Darryl Gardner said they’ll be billed for portions of their health insurance if the shutdown drags on past two months.“So if we want, for instance, dental insurance to continue, we will have to pay that out of our own pockets as opposed to having, obviously, being deducted from our pay, because we won’t be getting paid,” Gardner said.Gardner is based in Anchorage, but he frequently helps clients around the state.“We’re government workers. We are not in private practice,” Gardner said. “We’re dedicated to the administration of justice more than necessarily making a bunch of money in private practice.”Gardner said a total of four attorneys, three investigators, and four staff work in the Anchorage office. He said another attorney in his office has two children to support and just bought a house.

Aakriti Art Gallery presents an exhibition of drawings by artist Ramkumar titled -Drawings from the 60’s. Ramkumar, a legendary artist is regarded as one of the first-generation of post-independence artists in India. His contemporaries included artists likes of M.F Husain, F.N Souza, SH Raza and Akbar Padamsee. As an artist, he evolved from his short lived figurative phase into a master of abstractions. The show is curated by poet and art-critic Prayag Shukla, a close associate of Ramkumar for five decades Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’‘The sense of quiet that pervades his work invites contemplation, not a gaze’ said Sham Lal on Ramkumar. Ramkumar trained under Andre Lhote and Fernand Legar in Paris.The 20th century modernism in Paris, Vienna and London served as an inspiration for him, combined with a desire to ethnically belong to the homeland- in its inherent Indianness. Ramkumar’s search for an Indian identity has transcended mere motifs and figurative. As an artist he evolved from his short lived figurative phase into a master of abstractions. Having renounced the active engagement with the state and civil society that had earlier characterized his position, the artist had turned gradually inward, choosing to be in an internal exile of the spirit. His drawings to be exhibited mark a transcendence into abstraction. The drawings reflect sheer beauty through lines creating an experience rather than a discourse. Drawings presented in the show are sensitive charting of momentous happenings, in fine lines, and speak volumes for Ramkumar’s delicate rendering quality. Where: Aakriti Art Gallery, Lado Sarai When : On till 29 November
Cancun, Q.R. — Many parts of Cancun were flooded Sunday after heavy rain hit the region knocking down trees and tearing away billboard signs.The storm ripped through the city of Cancun late Sunday morning and made its way down to Riviera Maya where it arrived as mild showers. It was the city of Cancun that got the worst of the predicted storm.Meteorologists say that Cold Front 44 was responsible for the extreme drop in temperatures as the system arrived with force winds and heavy rains. Although the National Meteorological Service had anticipated the cold front, it brought with it with a fair amount of electrical activity that rumbled skies for hours.Before it was over, Cold Front 44 dumped up to 75 millimeters of rain in some areas of the city of Cancun, flooding streets.Some areas of Cancun reported fallen trees, while several billboard signs were wind damaged. In particular, Boulevard Luis Donaldo Colosio, Avenida Xel-Ha, Avenida Leona Vicario and Avenida Bonampak were some of the hardest hit.The storm has since passed leaving the entire region with cool air.
