Please enter your email address here Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate With such an enormous challenge, where would it make sense to start? We looked into our archives for stories on what it would take to eradicate homelessness in the U.S. today.1. How the homeless population is changing“The common perception of homelessness is that it is a problem that afflicts only those with mental health and substance use problems,” writes Margot Kushel, a professor of medicine at University of California, San Francisco. But a diverse array of Americans are affected.In fact, the U.S. homeless population is getting older and sicker. Today, half is over the age of 50. Many of these older homeless adults are the victims of circumstance. “Their lives became derailed by job loss, illness, a new disability, the death of a loved one or an interaction with the criminal justice system,” writes Kushel.2. Homeless high school studentsAnother group that struggles with homelessness: American teens. One in 30 high school students in the U.S. have experienced homelessness in the past year.Research from Stacey Havlik at Villanova University shows “that school counselors often lack knowledge about students who are homeless, and have limited training to support their needs.” These students may need not only basic support like food and clothing, but extra attention to their mental health and planning for the future.3. Better places to stayAbout a quarter of homeless Americans are unsheltered. But even when there are shelters, people may choose not to go to them. Many are run-down and dirty, offer little privacy or feel unsafe.Jill Pable at Florida State University suggests rethinking shelter design. Her team upgraded a local shelter with new features, like better lighting, privacy curtains and room to store possessions. “This small, only partially controlled study is not the final word in shelter design,” she writes, but the feedback from families who tried the new space was very positive.4. Integrating homeless people into their communitiesAnother team in Connecticut helps people with mental illness and criminal histories, many of whom have experienced homelessness, by teaching them about citizenship. The Citizens Project in New Haven is an intervention program that teaches people how to participate in their community, with classes on topics like conflict resolution and public speaking. Afterwards, participants report better quality of life, less substance abuse and fewer criminal charges.“The people we worked with needed to see themselves – and be seen as – full members of their neighborhoods and communities,” write program creators Michael Rowe of Yale University and Charles Barber of Wesleyan University. “They needed, in other words, to be citizens.”Editor’s note: This story is a roundup of articles from The Conversation’s archives. The Anatomy of Fear By Aviva Rutkin, Big Data + Applied Mathematics Editor, and first published on theconversation.com.Tonight, some 554,000 people in the U.S. will be homeless.Many of them live on the West Coast, where Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is launching a new fund that plans to fight the problem. Part of the US$2 billion donated by Bezos will be spent “to provide shelter and hunger support to address the immediate needs of young families.” Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your comment!

On Libyan revolution’s 10th anniversary, authorities urged to guarantee press freedom News Six imprisoned journalists to finally appear in court in Istanbul to go further News Read in Arabic / بالعربيةReporters Without Borders is relieved that the two Tobacts TV journalists who were arrested in Bani Walid on 7 July – reporter Abdul Qadir Fassouk and cameraman Yousuf Badi – were freed today after being flown by helicopter yesterday to Jadu, in the western Nefusa mountains. They arrived late today in Misrata, where Tobacts TV is based, and were due to give a news conference at 9 pm.“While their release is a big relief, it is important that the Libyan authorities take concrete measures to ensure that such incidents do not recur. “Journalists must not be the targets of attacks or taken hostage or used as bargaining chips for nefarious ends.”The journalists’ transfer to Jadu and subsequent release were the result of intense negotiations involving the National Transitional Council, the prime minister and many tribal elders, especially after a Misrata-based militia threatened to attack Bani Walid if they were not freed within 48 hours.Fassouk and Badi were arrested in Bani Walid at around 8 p.m. on 7 July while on their way back to Misrata from Mizdah, where they had been covering that day’s nationwide parliamentary elections. Four other people from Misrata who were subsequently arrested are still being held.The people who “kidnapped” the two journalists in Bani Walid had reportedly demanded the release of Bani Walid residents held in Misrata in exchange for their release.

They have been held since 7 July, the day of nationwide parliamentary elections which they had gone to cover in Bani Walid for Tobacts TV, a station based in Misrata, 100 km north of Bani Walid.AlWadiTV showed footage of the two cameramen, in apparent good health, saying they were arrested for entering Bani Walid illegally and for filming military areas without permission.Mohammed Al-Swehili, the head of one of the Misrata militias, told the Associated Press he was setting a 48-hour deadline for their release. If they were not freed, “forces from all over the country would attack Bani Walid,” he added.“As well as being unjustified and constituting a serious violation of freedom of information, their abduction and detention have exacerbated the already marked regional tensions,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We would condemn any use to force to obtain their release, especially as a military assault on the town would put their lives in danger. We appeal to all sides to show restraint and we call for their immediate release.”Fosouk and Badi were reportedly kidnapped at around 5 p.m., as they were about to leave Bani Walid and return to Misrata in order to vote there before the close of polls. According to information that Reporters Without Borders obtained from some sources, their abductors demanded the release of certain detainees in Misrata in return for their release.

One was rushed to hospital. January 6, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two badly hurt when police charge journalists at ruling party meeting Twitter blocked, journalism threatened in Nigeria Organisation Receive email alerts News Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today that two journalists were badly hurt and one was hospitalised with a broken leg when police charged a dozen reporters and photographers at a congress of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on 4 January in the Nigerian federal capital of Abuja.”The Nigerian security forces have once again behaved with extreme and intolerable brutality,” the organisation said. “We insist on the right of journalists to work without constant fear of being the victims of violence, especially as police inspector general Tafa Balogun had just promised to do everything possible to protect them in their work. His apologies fall far short of what is needed.”Reporters Without Borders said it called for full compensation for the victims by those responsible, both for hospital charges and for equipment that was damaged or destroyed.”The police, State Security Service (SSS), anti-riot units and politicians’ bodyguards continue to sustain a climate of arbitrary violence verging on political persecution,” the organisation added. “The impunity must end and those responsible must be brought to account.”The two journalists who sustained the most serious injuries at the PDP congress were Yomi Odunuga, the Abuja bureau chief of The Punch, and Segun Jacob Olatunji of The Tribune, who was rushed to hospital by his colleagues with a broken leg. Both newspapers are national dailies.The disturbance began when Anambra state governor Chris Ngige arrived and news photographers tried to take pictures of a dispute between an SSS member in charge of protecting the governor and the police commissioner in charge of federal operations, Lawrence Alobi.When the police attacked the journalists, the following sustained damage to their photographic equipment: Gbenga Abiodun of the Daily Independent, Abayomi Fayese of the Guardian, Kennedy Ebomade of the Daily Trust, Ibrahim Samaila of The Punch, Francis Ojo of the Daily Champion, Akin Osimolade and Sunday Adah of the magazine TELL, Innocent Okafor of This Day and Monday Emoni of The Comet. The TV camera of George Edemevughe of Channels Television was also damaged.The police said they acted on the orders of PDP officials who did not want the press to cover the congress. The Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) issued an ultimatum to the authorities to bring those responsible to justice within a week or the press might decide to stop covering police activities.Rivalry has long existed within the PDP and has often led to violence. When the supporters of Anambra state political boss Chris Uba (the former backer of Ngige, the present governor) held a meeting on 10 November 2004, about 100 Ngige followers went on the rampage, attacking public radio stations in two localities, tying up and beating night staff and setting fire to the premises.

Top Stories[Breaking] Enrica Lexie Case: Permanent Court Of Arbitration Holds Italy Liable To Compensate India; Asks India To Drop Prosecution Against Marines Ashok Kini2 July 2020 7:05 AMShare This – xThe Permanent Court of Arbitration, in Enrica Lexie case, has unanimously held that India is entitled to claim compensation from Italy.

It also held (by 3:2 majority) that the Marines are entitled to immunity in relation to the acts that they committed during the incident of 15 February 2012, and that India is precluded from exercising its jurisdiction over the Marines.The Tribunal pronounced an Award in Enrica Lexie Case holding that Italy has acted in breach of the Article 87, paragraph 1, subparagraph (a), and Article 90 of the United Nations Convention for the Law of the Sea and that India is entitled to payment of compensation in connection with “loss of life, physical harm, material damage to property (including to the “St. Antony”) and moral harm suffered by the captain and other crew members of the “St. Antony””, which by its nature cannot be made good through restitution. The Tribunal also unanimously held that India has not breached Article 87 of the UNCLOS by asking Enrica Lexie to change its course and by detaining it at Kochi port after the incident of firing on Feb 15, 2012. The Court has invited both the countries to consult with each other with a view to reaching agreement on the amount of compensation due to India. It clarified that the Arbitral Tribunal shall retain jurisdiction should either Party or both Parties wish to apply for a ruling from the Arbitral Tribunal in respect of the quantification of compensation due to India. The Tribunal also ordered that India must take the necessary steps to cease to exercise its criminal jurisdiction over the Marine.Enrica Lexie IncidentOn February 15, 2012, at about 4.30 PM, at a distance of about 20.5 nautical miles from the coastline, a fishing boat ‘St Antony’ happened to pass “Erica Lexie”, a tanker flying the Italian Flag. Two marines aboard the ship – Massimilano Latorre and Salvatore Girone – mistook ‘St Antony’ for a pirate boat, and opened fire at it. This resulted in the death of two fishermen – Valentine Jalastine and Ajesh Binki. First Information Report (FIR) was lodged by the local police against the marines under S.302 read with S.34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) in respect of the firing incident leading to the death of the two Indian fishermen.Following this, the Republic of Italy filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court under Article 32 of the Constitution, challenging the criminal proceedings against marines in Kerala. The Court held that the expression “incident of navigation” in Art.97 of UNCLOS cannot be extended to a criminal act, involving the killing of two Indian fishermen on board an Indian fishing vessel. The Court also held that Article 97 will apply only to ‘High Seas’, which do not form part of Exclusive Economic Zone, Territorial Waters or Internal Waters of any country. It was further held that India has jurisdiction over Contiguous Zones under the Maritime Zones Act. Justice Kabir said in the judgment that “The incident of firing from the Italian vessel on the Indian shipping vessel having occurred within the Contiguous Zone, the Union of India is entitled to prosecute the two Italian marines under the criminal justice system prevalent in the country”.The Court also held that State of Kerala has no jurisdiction to investigate into the incident. This was on the reasoning that only Union Government had jurisdiction over Contigous Zone under the Maritime Zones Act. Following the judgment, the investigation of the case was taken over by National Investigation Agency from Kerala police.In July 2015, Italy took the case to International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, an independent judicial body under the UNCLOS. The ITLOS later referred the matter to the Permanent Court of Arbitration, an intergovernmental organisation based in The Hague in Netherlands. From 8 July to 20 July 2019, the hearing was held at the seat of the PCA at the Peace Palace, The Hague, the Netherlands. The hearing addressed the jurisdiction of the Arbitral Tribunal as well as the merits of Italy’s claims and India’s counter-claims. Read detailed report on Enrica Lexie case here.Summary of Findings of PCAThe Arbitral Tribunal consisted of five Judges: Vladimir Golitsyn (President), Jin-Hyun Paik, Patrick Robinson, Francesco Francioni and Dr. Pemmaraju Sreenivasa Rao.Tribunal has jurisdictionThe Tribunal by (4:1) held that there is a dispute between the Parties as to which State is entitled to exercise jurisdiction over the incident of 15 February 2012 involving the “Enrica Lexie” and the “St. Antony”, and that the dispute concerns the interpretation or application of the Convention. Thus it was held that that the Arbitral Tribunal has jurisdiction over the dispute.India Should Take Necessary Steps To Stop Criminal Proceedings Against MarinesThe Tribunal by three votes to two, in respect of Italy’s Submission (2)(f), held that the Marines are entitled to immunity in relation to the acts that they committed during the incident of 15 February 2012, and that India is precluded from exercising its jurisdiction over the Marines. Therefore it held that India must take the necessary steps to cease to exercise its criminal jurisdiction over the Marines, and that no other remedies are required.Other findingsThe Tribunal found that Italy has not violated India’s sovereign rights under Article 56 58, paragraph 3, or under Article 88 of the Convention. It also found that that India has not acted in breach of Article 87, paragraph 1, subparagraph (a), Article 92, paragraph or Article 100 of the Convention and that therefore Article 300 cannot be invoked in the present caseClick here to Read/Download Extract of the AwardNext Story
Share this article Navy UCAS-D Achieves Milestone on USS Eisenhower Back to overview,Home naval-today Navy UCAS-D Achieves Milestone on USS Eisenhower View post tag: UCAS-D A team from the Navy Unmanned Combat Air System program office (PMA-268) accomplished the first carrier touchdown of an F/A-18D surrogate aircraft, emulating an unmanned vehicle, using systems developed as part of the Unmanned Combat Air System Carrier Demonstration (UCAS-D) program on July 2.The test, conducted on USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69), means the Navy is one step closer to demonstrating the first carrier-based recoveries and launches of an autonomous, low-observable relevant unmanned aircraft.“What we saw here today is cutting edge technology for integrating digital control of autonomous carrier aircraft operations, and most importantly, the capability to automatically land an unmanned air system aboard an aircraft carrier,” said Capt. Jaime Engdahl, N-UCAS Program Manager. “Successfully landing and launching a surrogate aircraft allows us to look forward to demonstrating that a tailless, strike-fighter-sized unmanned system can operate safely in the carrier environment.”Demonstrating the UCAS-D system with a carrier-based aircraft, the F/A-18D, significantly reduces risk of landing an unmanned system aboard the ship for the first time. The F/A-18 surrogate aircraft, provided by Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX) 23, is controlled with actual avionics and software that are being incorporated on X-47B UCAS-D aircraft.“Surrogate testing allows us to evaluate ship systems, avionics systems, and early versions of the unmanned vehicle software with a pilot in the loop for safety,” said Glenn Colby, team lead for UCAS-D Aviation/Ship Integration. “With this we can verify our interfaces and functionality while minimizing the risk to an unmanned vehicle.”Along with the F/A-18, the test team employed a King Air surrogate aircraft operated by Air-Tec, Inc. According to Colby, the King Air gives the team a low-cost test bed to evaluate the ability of the UCAS-D avionics and ship systems to properly adhere to existing carrier operations procedures. PMA-268 is using the King Air to test all of the system functionality that does not require actually landing on the ship.“The most important thing we have done is adapted the ship’s systems to handle a vehicle without a pilot, then seamlessly integrated it into carrier operations,” said Rob Fox, UCAS-D Aviation/Ship Integration deputy team lead. “We’re using both current aircraft carrier hardware and software systems and processes, and introducing new systems and processes to accommodate an unmanned system.”The vast majority of today’s carrier flight operations are flown manually and visually by Naval Aviators. The pilot gives the ship information about the aircraft over the radio; all air traffic control instructions are by voice and even a good portion of navigation data has to be read over the air by the ship. The purpose of the UCAS-D integration effort is to digitize the communications and navigation information flow to incorporate capabilities required for UAS flight operations aboard a carrier, with minimal impact to existing hardware, training and procedures.“This test period shows us very clearly that the carrier segment hardware and software, and the Precision Global Positioning System (PGPS) landing technologies are mature and ready to support actual unmanned operations with the X-47B,” said Engdahl.To support an autonomous vehicle, PMA-268 has modified shipboard equipment so that the UCAS-D X-47B air vehicle, mission operator and ship operators are on the same digital network. For current fleet aircraft, the Landing Signal Officer (LSO), who is charged with safe recovery of aircraft aboard the ship, uses voice commands and visual signals to communicate with a pilot on final approach. Since a UAS cannot reliably respond to voice and visual signals, the LSO’s equipment communicates directly with the aircraft through the digital network via a highly reliable interface. Similar digital communication capability has been integrated with the ship’s primary flight control (“tower“) and Carrier Air Traffic Control Center (CATCC) facilities.Most importantly, the UAS operator’s equipment, installed in one of the carrier’s ready rooms, is integrated with the very same network.In addition to communications, an unmanned system requires highly precise and reliable navigation to operate around the ship. This first arrested landing of the F/A-18D surrogate aircraft aboard the Eisenhower was enabled by integrating Precision Global Positioning System (PGPS) capabilities into the ship and the aircraft.According to Engdahl, these tests demonstrate that PGPS landing technologies and the carrier segment hardware and software are mature and ready to support actual unmanned operations with the X-47B. In addition, these capabilities have the potential to make manned aircraft operations safer and more efficient.“Our team has worked vigorously over the past five years to modify and develop systems required to operate unmanned aircraft around and aboard a carrier,” said Adam Anderson, team lead for UCAS-D Aviation/Ship Integration System Build, who has worked on the program since 2006. “This was a very complex and challenging task that required innovative, hard-working and dedicated individuals to get the job done.”The first experiments supporting unmanned carrier operations were conducted in 2002 followed by at-sea testing of a King Air in 2005. With the basic concept proven, the UCAS-D team began the detailed design of the carrier integration in 2007. The PMA-268/NAVAIR team worked closely with experts from PEO (Carriers) and the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) to determine the details of system installation on a carrier, while working to minimize impact to ongoing missions and capabilities aboard the ship. Initial capability of the ship equipment was verified in January 2010 during testing aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln.In fall 2010, ship modifications began on the Eisenhower. The UCAS-D team worked closely with ship’s company personnel to lessen disruption to other activities required for normal operations and maintenance of the ship. Initial surrogate testing took place during the ship’s sea trials the week of June 13, which validated the system’s readiness for carrier landings.“This was truly a team effort with our industry partners, including Northrop Grumman, Rockwell Collins, Honeywell, L-3 Communications, SAIC, ARINC and Sierra Nevada Corporation, PEO Carriers, NAVSEA and, of course, the crew of the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower,” Engdahl added. “The exceptional support and collaboration of the entire team has set us up very well to achieve our ultimate milestone –autonomous landing of an actual unmanned, low-observable relevant aircraft on the aircraft carrier in 2013.”The UCAS-D program continues ship integration and X-47B flight test activities in preparation for sea trials in 2013. Flight testing is underway at Edwards Air Force Base and will transition to Pax River later this year.[mappress]Source: navy, July 6, 2011; View post tag: Navy View post tag: milestone View post tag: Naval Equipment & technology View post tag: News by topic View post tag: achieves July 6, 2011 View post tag: USS View post tag: Eisenhower
