GTF pushes for boycott

Posted On Oct 8 2019 by

GTF says 2013 is not only an important year for Sri Lanka, but a vital moment for the future credibility of the Commonwealth. “It is astounding that a Government accused of involvement in war crimes and of complicity in continuing human rights abuses will then sit on bodies, such as the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group, mandated to deal with serious and persistent violations of the Commonwealth’s fundamental values, the GTF President said.He urged Commonwealth leaders to prevail upon the Government of Sri Lanka, in the strongest possible terms, the need to end the culture of impunity, to restore the rule of law and to comply with its international obligations to protect the fundamental rights and freedoms of its people. The Global Tamil Forum (GTF), a powerful Tamil diaspora lobby group operating from London, is continuing to push for a boycott of the 2013 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Colombo.Rev. Dr S.J. Emmanuel, the President of GTF, in a letter addressed to the Commonwealth heads of governments, says the 2013 CHOGM summit will seriously weaken the Commonwealth’s commitments to core principles of human rights and democracy. He says even powerful figures like the former military commander and 2010 Presidential candidate, Sarath Fonseka, and Sri Lanka’s Chief Justice, Shirani Bandaranayake, have been imprisoned or, in the latter case, illegally removed from office for challenging the government. read more


General Assembly passes six resolutions on Palestine and the Middle East

Posted On Oct 6 2019 by

A resolution on the peaceful settlement of the question of Palestine was passed with 160 States in favour, six against, and five abstentions. The text welcomed the Security Council’s vision of a two-State solution and reaffirmed the international community’s commitment to the so-called Road Map peace process.The resolution called on both sides in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to fulfil their Road Map obligations and stressed the importance of a credible, independent monitoring mechanism.The Road Map – a peace process co-sponsored by the diplomatic Quartet of the European Union, the Russian Federation, the UN and the United States – calls for parallel and reciprocal steps leading to Israel and Palestine living side-by-side in peace and security by 2005.A resolution supporting the work of the Assembly’s Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, and calling for the work to continue, was approved by 97 States, with seven States against the resolution and 60 abstentions.A resolution calling on the UN Secretariat’s Division for Palestinian Rights to be allowed to continue its work was passed by 98 States, with six States against the resolution and 63 abstentions.A resolution requesting the Secretariat’s Department of Public Information be allowed to maintain its special information programme on the question of Palestine was approved by 159 countries, with six countries voting against and a further six abstaining.There were two other resolutions dealing more broadly with the Middle East that were also passed in the Assembly.A resolution urging Israel to withdraw from the occupied Syrian Golan region back to its pre-1967 border was approved by 104 States. Five States voted against the resolution and 61 States abstained.The other resolution stated that any moves by Israel to “impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem” should be regarded as illegal and therefore invalid. It also deplored the transfer by some States of their diplomatic missions to Jerusalem in violation of an earlier Security Council resolution. This resolution was passed by 155 States, with eight nations against and seven abstaining. read more


Security Council extends UN peace mission in Liberia for another year

Posted On Oct 2 2019 by

“Long-term stability will require the Government of Liberia to develop and sustain a self-sufficient, capable, and competent security sector to build the confidence of all Liberians,” the 15-member body said in a unanimously adopted resolution.It endorsed the continued drawdown of the mission’s military component agreed upon last year by a further 1,129 personnel by next September, with the goal of leaving UNMIL’s military strength at some 3,750 personnel by July 2015. As of last July there were 5,757 UN peacekeeping troops in the West African country, where the world body has played a major role in restoring stability and democracy. At the height of its operations, which began in 2003, UNMIL totalled more than 15,000 troops and well over 1,000 police personnel, and helped oversee two series of democratic elections after more than a decade of civil war which, beyond the death toll, drove 850,000 refugees into neighbouring countries, displaced scores of thousands more internally and inflicted untold damage on the nation’s infrastructure.While welcoming overall progress towards restoring peace, security, and stability, today’s resolution, which maintained the current authorized strength of UNMIL’s police component at 1,795 personnel, including 10 formed police units, noted the continuing problems with violent crime and sexual and gender-based violence.“Women and girls in Liberia continue to face a high incidence of sexual and gender-based violence,” it declared, calling on the Government to continue to combat sexual violence, particularly against children, and in coordination with UNMIL, to continue to fight impunity for perpetrators of such crimes and provide redress, support, and protection to victims.The resolution also called on the Governments of Côte d’Ivoire and Liberia to further enhance their cooperation over their joint border, scene of recent violence, by increased monitoring, information sharing and coordinated actions, and implementing a shared border strategy to support the disarmament and repatriation of foreign armed elements on both sides of the border and the voluntary return of refugees in safety and dignity.Other clauses called for an ongoing battle against corruption, promotion of transparency, good governance, human rights and reconciliation, participation of women in conflict prevention and peacebuilding, and security and rule of law organs that are fully and independently operational. read more


The cycle of revenge in South Sudan will hurt everyone – UN

Posted On Oct 2 2019 by

The situation in Bor-Pibor area is particularly concerning with fears of violent clashes between youths from the Dinka Bor and Murle communities, David Shearer, the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for South Sudan, told journalists at a press conference today. “We are worried that might spark more widespread fighting between those two communities [and] hence the reason we are providing support to the peace efforts on the ground,” he added, noting also the work that is being done with the Government to ease the situation. “The important thing is that we de-escalate tensions and provide an opportunity to talk rather than to fight because fighting only will result in a greater cycle of revenge [that] will be of no benefit to [anyone].” In his remarks, Mr. Shearer, also the head of the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), spoke of violence in various regions of the country, including attacks on peacekeepers and relief personnel, which have severely constricted the humanitarian operating space, and underscored the Mission’s resolve to do everything it can to ensure that assistance reaches those in need. “The attacks have a direct consequence on humanitarian activities and the assistance that can be provided to people who desperately need it,” he said, terming such violence as an “extraordinarily selfish thing to do”. SEE ALSO: UN appalled at killing of aid workers in South SudanThe senior UN official also praised the work of journalists in the country as well as humanitarian actors on the ground who, despite considerable challenges, are reaching thousands across the country with much needed assistance. “I think we owe them a real debt of gratitude,” he expressed. read more

Stephen Byrne I never opened my Leaving Cert results when I got

Share12 Tweet Email2 A still of Stephen with his parents from his upcoming documentary. Image: Stephen Byrne Image: Stephen Byrne BACK IN AUGUST 2009, Stephen Byrne had just started his career in RTÉ as a presenter when he ran home with his Leaving Certificate results and put them in a shredder.He never read them. Byrne didn’t want to see how he had done. He says now that he had a really difficult time during his Leaving Cert, balancing a new job with study and coming to terms with his sexuality.”[Working at RTE] was everything I wanted. I was a YouTuber before that but it was a big decision for my parents to allow me to work because they were very much focused on academia.”Also I was dealing with so much in the sense that being in RTÉ, being in school, being on a football team, I hadn’t accepted my sexuality and I was in a relationship with a girl at that time as well. So that was weighing heavy on me.”The Leaving Cert became secondary to everything else and a very negative weight on my shoulders so I just always felt that I had to go back.”Byrne is best known for presenting TwoTube on RTÉ 2 and for his radio show on RTÉ 2FM every Saturday and Sunday.Byrne is currently resitting his Leaving Cert and has reordered a copy of his results from 2009, which he plans to open alongside his new results this August as part of the documentary he is making about the experience.Resitting the Leaving Cert was always something that Stephen had planned to do but never knew when the time would be right.”I went to RTÉ and said, ‘look, I’m willing to do this to take a look at the system from the inside to see how much pressure we put on young people.”’When the project got the green light Stephen began night classes but had to return to his local school – which he had left when he felt he was unable to come out – for the supplementary parts of the exams.”Any projects and orals were done back in my old school, Clonkeen College in Deansgrange, so I was always among students.”It’s funny when you go back and integrate yourself. You slowly regress back to who you were and start to worry about whether people like you or not or whether you’re cool.”I left that school because I felt like I couldn’t really come out at that time.”When I said that to the students this year they couldn’t understand it but any classroom I’ve been in has been progressive which is both exciting but at the same time fuels a multitude of jealousy.” A still of Stephen with his parents from his upcoming documentary. Sunday 10 Jun 2018, 8:00 PM Stephen continued to work on RTÉ 2FM while studying this year but says that it took a toll on his mental health.”Right after I finished my mocks I flew to LA to cover the Oscars so there has been that level of juggling all year round. February alone, I think I had 20 flights for work.”So there were tough periods of time that really wore me out and exhausted me and you see in the documentary that it did take its toll. Around April I hit a low point, which now in hindsight I’m actually delighted about because it will probably be a lot more relatable for students.”I’m not afraid to be open about mental health issues, about my own anxiety and struggles with that.”Stephen says the experience has been transformative but he hopes the documentary will highlight the pressures the system puts on young people.”Everyone in the country has gone through it, it’s one of the most pressurised situations you’ll experience, not just as a teenager but in your life.”It has helped me come to terms with things that happened to him as a teenager that he never realised I did.Stephen says that resitting the Leaving Cert has given him a huge admiration for the young people of Ireland.”Modern young people, to the strength of so many of them they just get up and keep going, the conversations they’re having about mental health and how open a lot of them are about their feelings of who they are or what they want to be.”The documentary is set to be released on RTÉ  in the autumn.  Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Sojourner Douglass Appeals to Preserve Accreditation

Posted On Sep 1 2019 by

first_imgSojourner Douglass College is facing a fight to preserve its accreditation after changes to the federal Pell grant program in the earlier part of the decade caused significant declines in funding and enrollments, leading to budget shortfalls. Dr. Charles Simmons, president of the college, tells the AFRO that while he is confident Sojourner Douglass can win its appeal hearing in Feb. and preserve the accreditation it lost last Nov., he feels that the school has not been treated the same as other, traditionally White institutions (TWIs) in analogous or worse financial shape by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), the body that oversees the accreditation process.Sojourner Douglass was originally established in 1972 as a branch of Antioch College, which is in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and became an independent institution in 1980, according to Simmons. The college, located in east Baltimore, mostly serves working adults (most of whom are female heads of households) and has organized its academic calendar to make it easier for adults, with their incumbent family and work obligations, to complete a degree program.Dr. Charles Simmons, president of Sojourner Douglas College.The school offers three semesters per calendar year, so that a full-time student could finish what would traditionally be a four year bachelor’s program in three years, says Simmons.The U.S. Dept. of Education changed its rules concerning Pell grant (education grants for low-income students) distributions for the 2011-12 academic year, allowing only two disbursements per year rather than three. Sojourner Douglas lost $5 million in federal student aid as a result of this change.The Pell grant was also limited to a total of 12 semesters (equivalent of six years), down from the previous cap of 18 semesters, on the reasoning that one should be able to complete a four year degree in six years.“Many of our students are transfer students,” explained Simmons. “They start at the community college, they may stop out to get a job, they may stop out to get married, they come back, they may stop out to have a child, so we had a number of students who were transfer students, and so we had a number of students who had reached that 12 semester cap, so we lost another $2 million.”By the end of fiscal year 2013, Sojourner Douglass was facing an over $5 million budget deficit as a result of the changes to the Pell grant program. This occurred just as the college was required to submit a periodic review report to MSCHE, demonstrating that they continued to meet the commission’s standards for accreditation.At this point, two things occurred according to Simmons. The bank that holds the commercial mortgage on one of Sojourner Douglass’s buildings saw the revenue shortfall caused by the changes to the Pell grant program and called the mortgage due rather than renewing it, creating a further debt obligation for the college. At the same time MSCHE was reviewing Sojourner Douglass’s continuing accreditation-worthiness, and seeing the revenue shortfalls and debt obligations of the college, determined that Sojourner Douglass had failed to meet the commission’s standard on fiscal resources and informed the institution that their accreditation would be revoked if it could not demonstrate that its operations were fiscally sustainable.Sojourner Douglass had to respond to six items in order to avoid this impending loss of accreditation, and while the college was able to satisfy most of the items, it was held back by the inability to complete a sale-leaseback agreement—in which an investor would purchase one of their buildings, relieving the college of the debt it owed on the property, and then lease it back to the college for continued use—because the investor would only agree to the sale-leaseback on the condition that Sojourner Douglass was fully accredited to ensure that the investor would have a viable, long-term tenant.MSCHE, however, wanted the sale-leaseback agreement completed prior to renewing Sojourner Douglass’s accreditation, and though MSCHE was informed that the sale-leaseback would be completed upon renewal of accreditation, MSCHE revoked that accreditation nonetheless, effective June 30, 2015. The school now faces an appeals hearing on Feb. 2, in Philadelphia.“We’ve been in operation for 42 years, we’ve served the community well,” said Simmons.  “This act to remove our accreditation was not based on academics, we’ve satisfied all of the academic criteria. Our students do well, our students graduate, they get good jobs; they’re in management positions throughout the state. So this is all just finance.”The Baltimore City NAACP is assisting Sojourner Douglass in its appeal of the MSCHE decision and looked into other, similarly situated, institutions and found that MSCHE has renewed accreditation for at least eight schools facing similar or worse fiscal deficits, including one school with a deficit of $47 million, all of whom are TWIs, according to Simmons.“It appears that we’ve been treated differently,” said Simmons.Tessa Hill-Aston, president of the Baltimore City NAACP, indicates that Sojourner Douglass is the only institution founded and run by Black people among those the NAACP looked at with similar financial issues, and was also the only one whose accreditation was revoked.“Even though some of the other schools have a lot of African American [students], they’re not run by African Americans, so that makes a difference,” said Hill-Aston.  “A lot of times schools can have African American students . . . and they’re making money off the population but they’re not run by African Americans . . . So I do feel there has not been the same opportunities given and I’m hoping that will change.”Hill-Aston says that now is the time for alumni to step up and help Sojourner Douglass with whatever contribution, regardless of size, that they can afford, as the institution works to revamp its finances and demonstrate the viability of its enterprise.Simmons said the loss in financial aid due to the changes in the Pell grant program, and the subsequent negative publicity from the loss of accreditation have cut the college’s enrollment by almost half, going from approximately 1400 students in 2013 to 800 now.In spite of the current challenges faced by the college, Simmons says he fully expects to win the appeal, and is encouraging students to remain with the institution rather than flee out of concern their credits or degrees will not be valid.“We intend to continue to serve our community,” said Simmons. “The credits are still good, credits are transferable, the degree is still good. As long as we are an accredited institution—and we won’t issue any degrees or any credits, if we lose, after June 30, 2015, but any credit that any student earns, or any degree that a student earns up to that point is good.”ralejandro@afro.comlast_img read more


Windows Tip Speed up Disk Cleanup System Files loading

Posted On Aug 29 2019 by

first_imgWindows Tip: Speed up Disk Cleanup System Files loading by Martin Brinkmann on March 25, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: March 25, 2017 – 13 commentsThe following tip provides you with information on how to speed up the loading of Disk Cleanup’s “clean system files” option on Windows.Disk Cleanup is a built-in tool on Windows devices that users may utilize to remove temporary data from the operating system.It is not as complete as dedicated third-party cleaning programs such as CCleaner or Privazer, but it may still remove Gigabytes of disk content that is no longer needed from the system.Only part of what can be cleaned is listed when you run Disk Cleanup on a Windows machine. You can run the program by tapping on the Windows-key, typing Disk Cleanup, and selecting the option.There you find the items listed for cleanup, and a button to clean up system files as well. If you click on that button, the whole process starts over to include system file locations as well.Microsoft improved the process in the Windows 10 Creators Update. The option to select a drive was removed from the process, and the loading of the interface was improved as well.We talked about one option to load the system files interface right away. It required running a command, and while you could create a shortcut for it to improve usability, it was not really liked by many users.There is a different way however to load the system files version of Disk Cleanup right away.All you need to do is hold down the Ctrl-key and the Shift-key before you select the option. So, tap on the Windows-key, type Disk Cleanup, hold down the Shift-key and Ctrl-key, and select the Disk Cleanup result.Windows will take you to the full Disk Cleanup interface right away that includes system files. This works both when you run Disk Cleanup from the start menu, and when you run it from a drive’s properties page.You can right-click on any drive and select properties to open the drive’s properties. There you find listed an option to run disk cleanup.If you just click on the button, the regular Disk Cleanup interface is loaded. If you want to clean up system files as well, you’d have to click on the button to do so.The tip mentioned above bypasses this and loads the interface right away.SummaryArticle NameWindows Tip: Speed up Disk Cleanup System Files loadingDescriptionThe following tip provides you with information on how to speed up the loading of Disk Cleanup’s “clean system files” option on Windows.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
