UN mission chief welcomes commitment to ensure accountability for sexual violence in

“I take note of the Communique on Preventing Conflict-Related Sexual Violence issued by Riek Machar on behalf of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLM/SPLA) in Opposition on 18 December 2014,” said Zainab Hawa Bangura.In a press release issued today, Ms. Bangura said she is “pleased by the commitment expressed by the SPLM/SPLA in Opposition to issue clear orders prohibiting sexual violence through the chain of command, investigate alleged violations in a timely manner, and reinforce their military justice system to ensure accountability for sexual violence crimes.”She also noted that the commitments made in the communique must be reflected in any peace accord in South Sudan to end a conflict that was sparked by a political rivalry between President Salva Kiir and his former Vice-President, Mr. Machar. “Crucially, the Communique also commits to facilitating the monitoring of sexual violence in the framework of the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement, and ensuring that this issue is reflected in specific provisions of any peace agreement including those related to security arrangements and transitional justice mechanisms, and ensuring that those responsible for sexual violence are excluded from amnesty provisions,” Ms. Bangura said. “I encourage SPLM/SPLA in Opposition to translate these commitments into action in order to effectively protect the women, children and men of South Sudan from sexual violence,” she said.South Sudan faces considerable humanitarian challenges, which have increased substantially since the outbreak of violence across the country in mid-December 2013 that has sent nearly 100,000 civilians fleeing to United Nations bases around the country.The crisis has uprooted an estimated 1.9 million people and placed more than 7 million at risk of hunger and disease in the South Sudan, which became the newest country in the world in 2011. read more

The UN Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) has expressed outrage at a Taliban attack in Kabul, that killed “scores” of civilians on Wednesday. In a Tweet, the Mission said that such “indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks in heavily populated civilian areas must stop”.According to media reports, the Taliban claimed responsibility for the deadly car bomb attack on a police station. At least 14 people are believed to have been killed in the explosion, and nearly 150 injured.Earlier, on the same day, UNAMA released a statement expressing “deep concern” at threats made by the Taliban to target civilians participating in Afghanistan’s presidential elections, which are due to take place on 28 September. The elections were originally scheduled to take place in April, and postponed in July, only to be rescheduled for next month.Read our full coverage here.‘Enforced disappearances’, responsibility of Mexican state: UN independent experts The pioneering spirit of the so-called “Green Revolution”, that transformed agricultural production in the Asia-Pacific region, needs to be “retooled”, to embrace new technology and meet the increasingly complex nutritional needs of today’s world, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization, FAO, declared on Wednesday.The agency’s statement came during a special meeting held to commemorate 30 years of development progress made by the research foundation created by Mankombu Swaminathan, who is recognized as one of the pioneers of sustainable development.Listen to or download our audio News in Brief for 07 August on SoundCloud: With Zimbabwe now experiencing its “worst-ever hunger crisis”, the UN food relief agency has revised its humanitarian appeal to step up food assistance to people most affected by drought, flooding, and economic stagnation. “Yesterday the humanitarian community launched an urgent appeal for funds to respond to the country’s very difficult humanitarian situation”, World Food Programme (WFP) Spokesperson Herve Verhoosel told reporters in Geneva on Wednesday. “WFP is set to increase aid, especially for drought-affected residents, but also to build community capacity to respond to climate shocks”.Find our complete story here. UN chief welcomes signing of historic peace and reconciliation accord in MozambiqueThe Secretary-General has welcomed the signing of the Peace and Reconciliation Accord between the Government of Mozambique and the former rebel movement, RENAMO, on Tuesday.In a statement issued by his Spokesperson, António Guterres applauded both President Filipe Nyusi and RENAMO President Ossufo Momade “for their pursuit of direct talks and for their commitment to finalizing the peace process.”A civil war which erupted following Mozambique’s independence from Portugal, killed more than a million people between 1977 and 1992, but the ceasefire signed then did not prevent periodic violence, as RENAMO moved into the realm of civilian politics, becoming the main opposition party this year. The movement can now compete for regional governorships in elections scheduled for October. “The Secretary-General calls on all national stakeholders to contribute to durable peace, reconciliation and stability in the country”, said the statement, released on Wednesday. “He reiterates the commitment of the United Nations to supporting the implementation of the peace agreements and bringing about a process of genuine and lasting reconciliation and sustainable development in Mozambique.” Embrace new technology and innovation to feed the world, agency urges UN Security Council ‘utterly failed’ Syrian detainees: a victim’s plea to ‘end impunity and stop this horror’ Mexico must begin “processing and punishing those responsible for enforced disappearances”, an independent UN expert declared on Wednesday, in response to a complaint made by a witness to an alleged incident in 2010.The expert, Hélène Tigroudja, is a member of the Human Rights Committee, a group which monitors how countries, including Mexico, are sticking to international commitments on civil and political rights.The complaint concerns a man who was taken from his car at gunpoint by police, in the city of Poza Rica in October 2010, and has not been seen since.Four in 10 indigenous languages at risk of disappearing, warn UN human rights experts Of 7,000 indigenous languages spoken today, four in 10 are in danger of disappearing, rights experts said on Wednesday, in a call for a decade of action to reverse the “historic destruction” of age-old dialects.In an appeal to mark the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples on Friday (9 August), UN-appointed experts said that “nation-building” had been largely responsible for “ongoing discrimination” against native speakers.“Over time, such policies can undermine and effectively destroy a culture and even a people”, the experts cautioned, before insisting that indigenous languages allowed freedom of expression and conscience that are critical to people’s dignity, culture and political representation.Read our story here.Listen to or download our interview with Alexey Tsykarev, from the Centre for Support of Indigenous Peoples in Karelia: Afghan Mission ‘outraged’ by deadly Taliban attack in Kabul, as hardline group threatens election violence The Security Council has “utterly failed Syrian detainees and their families”, Amina Khoulani, co-founder of Families for Freedom, told the Security Council on Wednesday, during a meeting focused on those who have been jailed or gone missing across Syria, during years of brutal conflict.In a rare opportunity for the Council to hear directly from family members of people forcibly disappeared, Ms. Khoulani spelled out: “It is your responsibility to protect Syrians from a system that kills, tortures and illegally detains its own citizens”.

He said: “It ended with a dance which 600 people attended and we were on site until 1.30am.”The Cumbria Federation of Young Farmers, which hosted the event, is made of 25 regional clubs open to those aged 10 to 26.It is also open to non-farmers, and organises charity events, festivals and competitions.Last year a Federation charity fundraising event saw 12 young farmers push a bed 32 miles through the Lake District, from a pub near Kendal around the northern shore of Lake Windemere, to a country show in Lowick. A young farmer broke her arm competing in a female arm-wrestling match.The 20-year-old woman was taking part in the test of strength at a Young Farmer’s festival in Cumbria.The incident was so shocking her opponent fainted after realising what had happened.Andrew Dickinson, a partner in Kentdale First Aid who was on hand to provide medical assistance told the BBC the woman was given pain relief until an ambulance quickly arrived.He said: “She broke her arm while wrestling with another girl.“It was a bad break and she was in a lot of pain.“The other girl realised she had broken her arm and fainted.“The team were straight on to her, she was fine.”The 20-year-old was taken to Cumbria Infirmary by ambulance.The all-female arm-wrestling competition was one of more than 100 events at the Young Farmers’ Club Northern District Field Day in Irthington near Carlisle, on Saturday.Around 800 young farmers from 15 clubs in north and west Cumbria attended the festival, which included a competition to find the most deft tractor driver, a bale stacking race, and competitive sheep shearing and flower arranging.Mr Dickinson said that other than the incident, “the day was fantastic”. read more

PASOK voters celebrate victory

first_imgThe party started early on the streets of Athens on Sunday night as supporters of the Pan Hellenic Socialist Party (PASOK) flooded the city centre, beeping their car horns and waving PASOK flags as they celebrated victory in the country’s national elections.As early as 7pm, with the polls barely closed, supporters of PASOK, most of them certain of victory, were gathering at Klathomonos Square in central Athens in anticipation of a historic win.“I am ecstatic to be here with my family celebrating this momentous occasion,” said Yiannis Garifalakis, a 45-year old high-school teacher, who was there with his wife and two children.While PASOK supporters buoyantly cheered their leader whenever his image appeared on one of the giant television screens, the mood was a lot more sombre just one kilometre up the road. At Syntagma Square supporters of the New Democracy were shattered by the huge loss.“Calling these elections was possibly the dumbest thing Costas Karamanlis could have done,” said Marianna Petroulaki, a 24-year old member of the New Democracy party.“He knew he had no chance of winning,” Ms Petroulaki said about the defeated Prime Minister Mr Karamanlis.Earlier in the day, as the Greeks headed to the polls, confidence was high in both major camps.“We are confident we can turn things around and win,” said Ioanna Karra, a 32-year old member and volunteer of the New Democracy party, handing out promotional material at one of the many polling places in the central suburb of Exarcheia in Athens.Just metres away, Eleni Pappaioannou, a 22-year-old graphic design student and member of the Greek Communist Party K.K.E, was hopeful her party would do well but had predicted a PASOK win.“It’s clear PASOK will win the elections, the question is with how much of a majority and what percentage of the vote will the other party’s get and how will that shape the parliament,” Ms Pappaioannou said.But as the polls closed at 7pm and Greeks gathered in front of televisions at cafes and bars around the country to await results, coverage by all the major networks were quick to predict a PASOK win and with a comfortable majority.“This is a big win for us,” said Dimitris Lambridakis, a 36-year old plumber and PASOK supporter who was watching the results with friends at a downtown cafe.“It is a victory that will bring change to this country and one which I hope will help propel Greece into a brighter future.”Victory for PASOK could also bring about change for the Greeks of Australia.PASOK leader George Papandreou, has said he plans to improve the recognition of Australian university degrees and change other regulations to make it easier for Greek Australians to work in the country. Members of the Greek Diaspora would also be allowed, for the first time, to vote in the nation’s elections without the expense of travelling to Greece, and any obstacles blocking the quick payment of Greek pensions to thousands of qualified recipients in Australia would be promptly removed, he said.Mr Papandreou has indicated he would encourage skilled members of the Greek Diaspora to spend time working in their former country, which would require withdrawing hurdles such as the need for military service and restrictive hiring rules at government agencies.“We would have to create a specific law which would give this possibility to open up positions for, let’s say, two or three years for experts and advisers to come … and work here,” he said in an interview in The Australian last week.While the population of Greece is 11 million, there are estimated to be up to 7 million people of Greek descent living abroad, including approximately 365,000 in Australia.Meanwhile more than 1 million of Greece’s 9.7 million registered voters live overseas but current electoral laws require them to travel to Greece to vote in their original electorates – usually their place of birth. But Mr Papandreou said he would like to see three to five seats put aside in the 300-seat national parliament for the Greek Diaspora, who would be allowed to vote by mail or at consulates.

Bierhoff Sanes World Cup omission was good for him

first_imgGermany team manager Oliver Bierhoff suggests that Leroy Sane benefitted from being left out of the nation’s World Cup squadManager Joachim Low made the controversial decision to omit Sane from his final 23-man squad for Germany’s doomed campaign at Russia.This was despite Sane’s standout campaign at Manchester City last season, which saw him win the PFA Young Player of the Year award after helping the club claim a domestic double in breathtaking fashion.However, Bierhoff reckons the World Cup snub may have done Sane good in the end for his development.“The issues with Leroy have been sorted out positively. You see how Leroy is playing. Perhaps it was also a good sign for him,” Bierhoff told The Sun.Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

But he felt what it means not to be part of the team.“And we have seen from him in the last few games, since he came back, that he is so motivated and focused on playing well.”On a possible Mesut Ozil Germany comeback, Bierhoff added: “I’m sad how it finished but that chapter is over.”Sane has managed six goals and seven assists in 18 appearances across all competitions for City this season.The 22-year-old even scored his first two goals for Germany in the previous games against Russia and Netherlands.last_img read more

His Excellency John Freeman sworn in as 14th Governor

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, October 18, 2016 – The fourteenth governor since 1973 was sworn in Monday in Grand Turk and his welcome was both cordial and cautioning… both major party leaders assured the new His Excellency that the people of these islands are ready to support a mutually beneficial relationship, and both informed the Governor that there are some areas ripe for change.From the Opposition Leader, Hon Sharlene Robinson who spoke first and more extensively, there was talk about the now gone governor, being too soft on the current PNP Administration; she reminded the new Governor that his salary comes from the public purse. Hon Robinson addressed constitutional reform, calling for the Chief Financial Officer to be removed, for the Governor’s House of Assembly appointments to be reduced from two and said that crime is the top concern and the response has not been vigorous enough by the British who head the country’s National Security.The Premier, Hon Dr Rufus Ewing similarly wants the CFO gone, said the UK needs to prove itself honorable and support a bill to make that happen, that there should also be a bill to return the powers of land distribution to elected leaders and a crime strategy and lead appointments should also be managed by those elected to serve.The new Governor is Dr John Freeman and he was complimentary to the islands, adding that he is here as a guardian of our way of life. His wife, Corinna was presented a special bouquet by 7-year-old Maliha Lightbourne of Susanna Wesley Methodist School, from the A company of the Brownies & Girl Guides.

Senate Aid workers and the jobless

first_imgWASHINGTON — The Senate voted Saturday to avert a Jan. 1 payroll tax increase and benefit cutoff for the long-time unemployed, but forcing a reluctant President Barack Obama into an election-year choice between unions and environmentalists on whether to build an oil pipeline through the heart of the country.The action set up a House vote Monday.With the still-reeling economy as a backdrop, the Senate’s 89-10 vote belied a torturous partisan battle that produced the compromise two-month extension of the expiring tax breaks and jobless benefits and forestalled cuts in doctors’ Medicare reimbursements.It also capped a year of divided government marked by raucous partisan fights that saw eleventh-hour deals on the brink of a first U.S. default and three federal shutdowns. It also put the two sides on track to revisit the payroll tax cut early next year as the fights for control of the White House and Congress heat up.House GOP leaders held a conference call Saturday with rank-and-file lawmakers in which participants said strong anger was expressed about the Senate bill, including its lack of House-approved cuts in lastyear’s health care overhaul law and its failure to erase the reductions in doctors’ payments for more than two months.“You can’t have an economic recovery with this,” said Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., said of the bill “If the Senate is incapable of doing that, we don’t have to accept it.”last_img read more

EXCLUSIVE Meet Gurjit Kaur Indian hockeys defensive wall and goalscoring machine

first_imgGurjit Kaur in actionHockey IndiaIt’s hard for any top-level hockey side to succeed without having an efficient penalty-corner specialist. Thankfully for India, the women’s team have found one such player in the form of Gurjit Kaur. The strong Punjabi kudi has been scoring prolifically in the last couple of years and only seems to be getting better. In this exclusive interview with Akshay Saraswat of International Business Times, India, the 23-year old discusses her recent success, team’s challenges and the role of a defender in modern-day hockey. In the FIH Series Finals held in Hiroshima, you were the leading goal-scorer. Was that the biggest achievement of your career?Gurjit: Yes because in this tournament, I scored 11 goals whereas in Asian Games, I had 10. In Asia Cups, I had 8 goals in 2017 edition, 10 in 2018 and 11 in this year’s event. So, yes, this was a big achievement.In earlier days, almost all drag-flickers used to be defenders. But that has changed now. Why was it so earlier?Gurjit: Earlier, people used to prefer defenders because they are generally strong. Even for direct hits, they were the chosen ones. But now every player is playing all over the pitch, so, becoming a drag flicker isn’t that difficult.You mentioned that defenders are generally strong. So, as a defender yourself, do you try to make yourself stronger also, apart from working on your skills?Gurjit: Yes, because if you look at foreign teams, their girls use their body a lot. So, we also have to train in keeping with that style. We also enjoy that a lot. Gurjit Kaur in action against JapanTwitterBut the foreign players do indulge in a lot of body play. We practice in a similar way so that in a match or in a tournament, we don’t have any difficulties.There is training for everything. Whether one is a striker, defender or midfielder, they are all given the right training according to their position and situation.It has been said that there is special emphasis being laid upon the defence of the team by Coach Sjoerd Marijne since the attacking front is anyways good. Do you feel that your team’s defence capabilities have improved in the last one year or so?Gurjit: Definitely, the girls have improved a lot compared to before. Earlier, we weren’t that good but now, have improved a lot. Strikers have also shown a lot of improvement, so have defenders. The whole team has worked a lot on improving their game.In the final of FIH Series Finals, Rani took the penalty corner shot to score the first goal. Who decides and how is it decided which player will take the shot and what kind of shot or variation will be used?Gurjit: The coach decides, when the team meeting takes place, which method to use in penalty corners. Since we had played against Japan earlier as well, so both I and Rani were at the castles. Their focus was on me because I am the drag-flicker and my being in that position convinced them that we would go for the drag-flick. But our coach made a slight change to surprise them and that’s why Rani took the shot.Since your team had lost to Japan in the Asian Games final last year, was there added determination to not let Japan get an opportunity of getting back in the match and keeping things in full control?Gurjit: Certainly, because we had lost to them in the Asian Games. So, there was a little feeling of vengeance inside us, as well as some pressure that we had lost to them earlier so winning this match is very important. We cannot lose to them this time! Our entire team and coaching staff had decided the game plan. So, we had gone in to the match with that and the determination that we have to win. Gurjit celebrates with her teammatesTwitterThere is a new system of penalty shootouts that has come into place in the last few years. Do you also like to participate in them or leave it to the strikers and midfielders?Gurjit: We have special training for it in our camps and only those who are best in it are picked to do the job in matches also. It is not necessary that only the strikers are eligible for selection and defenders are excluded. So, currently, while the training is going on, the coach looks at who are the best and most confident players in that situation. Then only he decides whom to send into the match.Would you personally like to take part in these penalty shootouts?Gurjit: I don’t participate as of now but other members of the team are good and those who have confidence are given the responsibility. I take the penalty strokes. I am confident about them so I am sent for those. But for the 8-second foray, we have good strikers who are sent.Punjab was always known as a great state for hockey. What about the state of women’s hockey in Punjab? How strong is the culture of hockey in Punjab, overall?Gurjit: In recent times, it has weakened considerably. Earlier it used to be very strong but now, there aren’t that many players. Currently, in the junior’s camp also, there are only 2-3 and in seniors also, there are only 2. So, compared to earlier times, the craze for hockey is much less, including among girls.What is the reason for this?Gurjit: The main reasons are, we don’t get good facilities like gym, proper diets, coaching etc. There aren’t enough coaching centres or grounds with astro-turfs. These are the main reasons.Haryana seems to be doing quite well in sports and there seem to be good enough facilities to tap the natural talent there. Do you think Punjab has been left behind in that department?Definitely, because earlier, Punjab also used to have many players, in the girls team as well. But nowadays, there are very few because, while Haryana has a lot of good facilities, turfs, centres and academies, Punjab doesn’t have those things, they are finished. Gurjit receiving top scorer award for the FIH Series Finals in HiroshimaWhat can the government do to revive the culture of hockey in Punjab which you say has been withering away?Gurjit: The government should pay more attention and provide good facilities to the players. Then only players, especially young ones can come out and play. There should be grounds and astro-turf based grounds. Good, nutritious food should be available. All these facilities should be provided so that young players feel like coming out to play.How did you get involved with hockey?Gurjit: I was in school at the time. In 2006, I was living in the hostel of Kairon School in Amritsar. That’s where I started playing hockey. But I wasn’t serious at the time and didn’t know anything about hockey then. We had gone there just to study.Then, slowly, slowly, I kept developing as a hockey player. I was in 12th standard in 2012 when, for the first time, I was selected for the Indian junior team camp. I remained in the junior camp for some time and after that, got selected for the senior camp in 2014. My first tour was also with the senior team, in 2014. In 2016, I was left out, then returned in 2017. Since then, I have continuously been in the team.How and when did you become a defender?Gurjit: I used to play in all positions. In the camp, they played and assessed players’ skills at all positions. When the coaches feel that you can play best at a certain position, they assign it to you. The same thing happened with me. After I was tried at different positions in the field, the coaches felt I could play well in defence and I was made into a defender.What are the expectations of your current coach from you and the defenders in general? Are you lot expected to assist in attacking as well apart from doing your usual defensive work?Gurjit: When the team goes into attack, the whole team has to go into attack. It can’t be that only the attackers and midfielders go forward and the defenders just stand behind. So, we also go ahead to support them. Similarly, strikers also move back to help the defenders. The whole team helps each other out. The entire team moves up and down.But if your team is leading by 2-3 goals and very little time is remaining, would you then be expected to stay behind just in case there is a counter-attack?Gurjit: No, in that situation, our goal is to hold on to the ball as long as possible. We have almost won but that doesn’t mean that we have to play completely defensively in our own half. We will attack and still press high. If we pull back, it will increase the pressure on us. If we have the ball, then, how do we hold on to it and how do we give it to the strikers so that more goals can be scored, that’s what we try.last_img read more

Rajshahi quarantined day before opposition rally

first_imgThe bus service with Rajshahi from 12 districts including Dhaka, Pabna, Natore was halted for almost 12 hours on Thursday without any prior announcement, subjecting commuters to tremendous trouble throughout day. Photo: Prothom AloThe major opposition and Jatiya Oikya Front ally Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) alleged that bus service from 12 districts with Rajshahi was halted in order to obstruct the Oikya Front’s rally scheduled on Friday.Jatiya Oikya Front (National Unity Front) is to hold a public rally at around 2:00pm at the Madrasa grounds in Rajshahi.The bus service with Rajshahi from 12 districts including Dhaka, Pabna, Natore was halted for almost 12 hours on Thursday without any prior announcement, subjecting commuters to tremendous trouble throughout day.Members of Natore Bus Owners Association and Rajshahi Transport Workers Union have given contradictory statements in this connection.Earlier on Tuesday, the Oikya Front organised a rally in Suhrawardy Udyan in the capital. A number of vehicles were prevented from entering Dhaka for ‘security reasons’ on the day.Passengers and vehicles drivers complained that they had to face interminable traffic congestion due to the police checks along the way. Also, bus movement was closed at one stage on the Dhaka-Chittagong Highway in the Signboard area at the time.Earlier, BNP chairperson’s adviser Mizanur Rahman Minu talked to the media in a press conference at Rajshahi BNP’s office at noon on Thursday.“We got written permission for the rally on 12 conditions just 14 hours before the due date. Bus service was halted to hamper the gathering,” Minu told the media.Alleging that the police have been arresting BNP leaders and activists ahead of the rally, the adviser to the BNP chairperson said, “Police raided the houses of hundreds of BNP leaders and activists. Some over enthusiastic and ambitious police officers are creating obstacles before the rally in many ways.”In response to BNP’s allegations, Rajshahi metropolitan police spokesman Ifte Khair Alam said, the police were performing their regular duties and were not creating any obstacle. There was no incident of politically motivated arrests.Natore Bus Owners’ Association general secretary Sajidul Islam told Prothom Alo that they received a letter from the transport workers union saying a bus driver of Desh Travels was assaulted on Wednesday and they would close the bus service until legal action was taken.However, when the Prothom Alo correspondent contacted Desh Travels counter officials, they said that they did not know of any such incident of a driver being assaulted.Meanwhile, several bus drivers told Prothom Alo that they started out with passengers from Rangpur in the morning. After reaching Bogura, the owners and workers blocked their buses.A transport owner of Bogura said on condition of anonymity that police and Awami League-backed transport owners had restricted them to drive to Rajshahi.Bogura highway police denied such allegations.On the other hand, the convener of Rajshahi District Motor Workers Union Kamal Hossain said, the bus service was halted due to the dispute between the two Bus Owners’ Association of Rajshahi and Natore.last_img read more

Modi Gandhi duel in Indian state election

first_imgA voter marks her ballot at a polling booth for India`s Madhya Pradesh state assembly election in Bhopal on 28 November 2018. Millions of Indians began voting on 28 November for a key state election seen as a direct fight between prime minister Narendra Modi and his lead rival ahead of the national vote. Photo: AFPMillions of Indians voted Wednesday in a state election seen as a key duel between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his main rival before the whole country goes to the polls in 2019.Modi’s right-wing Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has governed the central state of Madhya Pradesh, home to 73 million people, since 2003 having won three state elections in a row.But polls suggest that the opposition Congress headed by Rahul Gandhi, scion of the Gandhi-Nehru dynasty, could win on the back of concerns about rising unemployment and by appealing to disgruntled farmers.The party, which lost power in Madhya Pradesh in 2003 — and nationally to Modi in 2014 — has campaigned aggressively against three-time chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on issues of corruption and misgovernance.Chouhan, who lead the BJP to a thumping majority in the 2013 elections, has nevertheless sounded confident. Modi himself has addressed no fewer than 10 rallies in the state in a hard-fought campaign.”This is not the toughest election of my career, it’s very comfortable,” Chouhan told reporters after casting his vote.The vote is one of five state elections this month and next that are a litmus test of Modi’s popularity ahead of general elections that have to take place before May but for which no date has been announced yet.Nearly 800,000 voters were also entitled to vote on Wednesday in the remote northeast state of Mizoram, which is governed by Congress. Results from all the state elections are due on 11 December.The BJP is trying hard to maintain its winning momentum after defeating Congress in at least a dozen states since the 2014 national election victory, and has campaigned hard in Madhya Pradesh.An electoral defeat in the state would be a major setback for the party and dent the winning image of Modi, 68.The state, one of India’s poorest and which is highly dependent on agriculture, is also crucial for his rival Gandhi.The 48-year-old is projected as party’s prime ministerial candidate but has so far failed to deliver any impressive electoral wins.last_img

While Firefox may collect the data when users opt-in, Mozilla believes that the data is biased and that only data collecting with opt-out would provide unbiased data that the engineers can work with.Questions that this data may help answer include “which top sites are users visiting”, “which sites using Flash does a user encounter”, and “which sites does a user see heavy Jank on” according to Fritzsche.The solution that Fritzsche proposes uses differential privacy and the open source RAPPOR project by Google.The key idea behind differential privacy is that any query against a set of data should not reveal whether a specific person or that person’s data is present. This is done by introducing randomness to the data.Mozilla plans to run a study on a subset of Firefox’s release population to test the implementation. The organization plans to make this opt-out, which means that Firefox users need to disable this actively if they don’t want their browsing data — in anonymized form — submitted to Mozilla.What we plan to do now is run an opt-out SHIELD study [6] to validate our implementation of RAPPOR. This study will collect the value for users’ home page (eTLD+1) for a randomly selected group of our release population We are hoping to launch this in mid-September.This is not the type of data we have collected as opt-out in the past and is a new approach for Mozilla. As such, we are still experimenting with the project and wanted to reach out for feedback.The telemetry that Mozilla plans to collect will only collect the top level domain name, e.g. ghacks.net without subdomains or directories.Google and Apple use differential privacy already, Google does in Chrome for instance.Mozilla has yet to reveal how users may opt-out of the study. We will update the article as soon as this is revealed by the company.Closing WordsOne objection that Firefox users had who replied to the post on Google Groups or elsewhere was that making the feature opt-out was anti-privacy no matter if the data that is collected cannot be traced back to a single user.Others stated that Mozilla could some of the data otherwise, for instance by crawling sites to check if they still make use of Flash, or by using services to retrieve information on the top sites on the Web.Now You: What’s your take on the proposal?SummaryArticle NameMozilla plans to collect anonymous Firefox browsing dataDescriptionMozilla plans to collect browsing data from Firefox users in a “privacy preserving way” to help Firefox product teams improve the browser based on the data.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

And more importantly, what can a Patient Portal do for you? In reality, the patient portal moniker has become a confusing industry catch-all; patient portals from one vendor may provide entirely different levels of service and interactivity than another. Adding to the confusion is the fact that both may still fail to offer the services that you as a provider are looking for. The truth is, some portals are very limited, offering only a basic login and access to patient history. Other portals, however, are highly functional and interact seamlessly with workflow and offer everything from intuitive check-in to patient reminders, self-registration and even payment options.Below are a few efficiency-making functionalities you should be looking for when in the market for a patient portal.1) Electronic Patient Entered Data & InteroperabilityWhat is the point of a patient portal if your staff is still required to enter patient data? This is redundant. To leverage the speed and efficiency of technology, information your patients fill-in should automatically get entered and verified in your existing systems of record. The portal could then pull information from your existing systems to provide access to your patients, even from past appointments. One powerful, efficient portal will interact with your entire office, no matter what technologies you already have in place.2) Pre-registration From Anywhere or Any DeviceWhile patients are accessing the portal from home, they can also register for appointments remotely. This allows patients to arrive for an appointment with registration complete and fully entered. Additionally, higher-functioning portals allow document uploading and payment options so your patients can walk-in and focus on what matters most, getting treatment.3) Patient Estimates & PaymentsGet accurate insurance, payment and co-pay estimates and accept payments through your portal. Some portals harness accurate estimation and eligibility software that makes billing less complicated and allows for quicker payments by allowing patients to pay from anywhere while using the portal.4) Custom WorkflowOptimize and tailor your workflow and electronic registration to the fastest possible output of your individual practice. Healthcare practices are highly individual and unique; no two offices have the same workflow. It is likely an out-of-the-box portal geared for one practice will not sufficiently meet all of you needs. Quality vendors, however, will tailor your electronic registration process to match the exact needs of your practice.5) Patient EngagementQuality patient portals automatically remind patients of appointment times, exams, billing etc. Reminder intervals can be selected by staff or individualized by the patient to suit what serves them best. Portal reminder features gives office staff freedom from phone calls, letters and email and automatically notifies patients for you. This results in higher front office productivity and patient interaction, while significantly reducing over-bookings and the costly no-show appointment.Armed with this knowledge, you can find a patient portal that is specifically geared to your office. Quality patient portals meet unique needs and use seamless technology to interact with existing infrastructure to create a highly functioning, efficient office while adding immeasurable value to the patient experience and your bottom line.For more information: www.royalsolutionsgroup.com News | Radiology Business | August 01, 2019 Philips Completes Acquisition of Carestream Health’s HCIS Business … read more Related Content Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.
