12 January 2009On the eve of his departure for wide-ranging, high-level talks in the Middle East to personally help broker a permanent ceasefire in the Gaza conflict, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called on Israel and Hamas to immediately stop fighting. “My goal is to step up the pace of our joint diplomatic efforts and ensure that urgent humanitarian assistance reaches those in need,” he told a news conference in New York. “It is one thing to speak to world leaders, as I have done daily in seeking to resolve this crisis. And it is another thing to be present oneself.”He said his message was simple, direct and to the point. “The fighting must stop,” he stressed as the Israeli offensive moved towards its 18th day with the stated aim to end Hamas rocket attacks into Israel. “To both sides, I say: Just stop, now. Too many people have died. There has been too much civilian suffering. Too many people, Israelis and Palestinians, live in daily fear of their lives. And in Gaza, the very foundation of society is being destroyed: people’s homes, civic infrastructure, public health facilities and schools.”Mr. Ban, who leaves tomorrow and will meet with all the main players apart from Hamas, laid out the major elements needed to ensure full implementation of last week’s Security Council resolution calling for an immediate and durable ceasefire. These include an immediate end to military operations in Gaza, an end to Israel’s offensive and a halt to the rocket attacks by Hamas; help from the international community to stop the smuggling of weapons into Gaza; and a full re-opening of border crossings into Gaza, he said of the message he would repeat at each of his stops.Israel has insisted on an end to rocket attacks and the smuggling of weapons into Gaza through tunnels dug by Hamas, while Hamas has demanded an end to the border closures imposed by Israel in response to the rockets – closures that have starved Gaza of basic supplies, creating what the UN has called a severe humanitarian crisis for its 1.5 million residents.“Innocent civilians, whether in the Occupied Territory or southern Israel, cannot live in a state of fear or under a de facto state of siege. Let normal life resume. That is the only path to lasting peace,” Mr. Ban declared.Noting that diplomatic talks were underway in Cairo, he said the sides must agree to the elements of an immediate ceasefire, which at a minimum means a halt to rocket attacks by Hamas and a withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza. “It is time to stop. It is time to stop the killing and the destruction,” he stressed.He noted that he had urged Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in a telephone call last Friday to observe the ceasefire and had discussed the issue with the United States so that it could influence Israel.He also discussed the crisis with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, whom he will meet in Cairo at the start of his mission on Wednesday, when he will also confer with Arab League Secretary-General Amre Moussa and Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit. He will then meet with Jordanian King Abdullah II in Amman.On Thursday, he will be in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, with meetings scheduled with Mr. Olmert, Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Defence Minister Ehud Barak. He will then visit Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.He is to travel briefly to Turkey for talks with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and then go to Beirut to meet with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman, Prime Minister Fuad Siniora, and Parliamentary Speaker Nabih Berri. He will also visit the headquarters of the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) in Naqoura and then move on to Syria. His last scheduled stop is Kuwait, where he will attend the meeting of the Arab League.Mr. Ban said he wanted his visit to be a tangible expression of support for the 10,000 UN staff on the ground in the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel who work under the most difficult and dangerous circumstances. “I salute their bravery and their dedication to the UN’s mission,” he declared.“Most of all, I want to demonstrate my deep concern and empathy for the innocents caught in these terrible circumstances, both in Israel and the Occupied Territory. More than 900 Palestinians have died. About 4,000 more have been injured. They have no place to hide, no place to run,” he added, calling it “tragic and heartbreaking to see so many civilians having been killed and suffering.” read more

Addressing the second day of the United Nations General Assembly high-level debate, Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee of India said global ills such as poverty, environmental degradation and economic imbalances were threatening future generations and urged the international community to take up the legitimate needs of developing countries.”The result of this imbalance between our material and non-material needs can never be happy for mankind,” Mr. Vajpayee said. “On the contrary, by placing compassion, care, fellow feeling, cooperation and other human values in the driver’s seat, we are bound to get the right solutions to every problem on our planet.”Turning to the conflict in Kashmir, the Prime Minister said that nuclear blackmail had emerged in the South Asia region over the last few months, with threats that “actions by India to stamp out cross-border terrorism” could provoke a nuclear war. He stressed that India has repeatedly clarified that it did not want war – conventional or otherwise – and that it was not seeking any territory.In his statement Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi of Japan called on Iraq to comply with UN Security Council resolutions, allow “immediate and unconditional” inspections and dispose of all weapons of mass destruction. He stressed the importance of the international community working together and engaging in more diplomatic efforts through the UN. “In doing so, we must pursue the adoption of necessary and appropriate Security Council resolutions as soon as possible,” he said.Japan, Mr. Koizumi said, also attached great importance to helping countries recovering from war to consolidate peace and nation-building efforts. He pointed to examples of Japanese participation in the rebuilding of societies in East Timor and Afghanistan, and pledged Tokyo’s continued commitment to helping the reform efforts of the Palestinian Authority.Italy’s Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, told the Assembly that in order to defeat terrorism, the international community must globalize freedom and democracy, and promote lasting economic development. The African continent was crucial to this effort to help countries participate in a “true development without borders.”The Group of Eight’s action plan for Africa, launched by Italy and approved earlier this year in Canada, responded to the need for a new form of solidarity between the most industrialized countries and those that intend to become the owners of their future by aiming to achieve common standards for good governance, Mr. Berlusconi said.In the fight against terror, President Alvaro Uribe Velez said Colombia was confronted daily by violence and death, in one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Recalling the thousands of people who have been kidnapped, killed, threatened or abducted over the past decades, he said violence made the Colombian people poorer every day, discouraged investments, hampered economic growth, diverted valuable resources and prevented the country from overcoming its economic and social backwardness.The central objective of the country’s democratic security policy was to restore the rule of law, the President said. “The purpose of security is not to persecute real or imagined ideological enemies or to maintain a one-party regime,” he stressed. “Democratic security is to protect every citizen in a pluralist nation, open to fraternal and creative debate. Democratic security is for all Colombians and intended to ensure that peasant farmers are not driven from their land, businessmen are not kidnapped, journalists are not threatened, and missions of bishops, priests, nuns, preachers and educators are respected.”President Milan Kucan of Slovenia noted that international terrorism had unveiled the negative aspects of the interdependence between societies and urged the international community to do more to strengthen the positive connections and create new ones. He said the environmental, economic and ethical challenges humanity was facing today required a radical rethinking of global governance and the establishment of global responsibility.”This is so much more [essential] since we are faced with the breakdown of regulation and control in globalize trade, with an inequitable set-up for global development that generates misery and humiliation, and with a relentless preference for economic and financial logic over ecological, social and human demands,” he said. “A positive alternative must be found to these negative aspects of interdependence.”Also addressing the Assembly was Foreign Minister Alexander Downer of Australia and Joseph Deiss, the Foreign Minister of Switzerland. read more
As if to put an exclamation point on their recent winning ways, the Toronto Blue Jays went into the Bronx over the weekend and swept the AL East-leading New York Yankees by a combined score of 10-1, narrowing New York’s division lead to a mere game and a half.The Blue Jays’ hot streak has been linked to their aggressive deal-making before MLB’s July 31 trade deadline. But as Victor Mather of The New York Times rightly pointed out in a column Monday, Toronto had the characteristics of a dominant team before they added any players. As of July 28, they possessed the American League’s top per-game run differential and its best underlying statistical fundamentals, despite a sub-.500 record.Baseball statheads have long known that a team’s run differential is generally a better predictor of future wins and losses than its record. So, it stood to reason that the Blue Jays would eventually turn things around. But we should also be careful not to swing too far in the opposite direction and ignore team records entirely.Run differential — which is usually expressed on the same scale as a winning percentage using the pythagorean formula — is indeed a better predictor than a team’s actual record. When predicting future wins at this stage of the baseball season, run differential is about 1.8 times as important as actual winning percentage. But that still means the optimal mix of pythagorean and actual winning percentages is roughly a 65-35 split, a ratio that gets closer to 50-50 as the season draws toward its end.This means that even if you know a team’s run differential, it also pays quite a bit to know its W-L record. While teams do tend to regress toward their underlying metrics, especially early in the season, we can capture additional signal by measuring a team’s ability to actually win ballgames (shock!).As for the Blue Jays, they’re clearly one of the AL’s best teams, especially with the extra weapons they picked up at the deadline. But their recent run of success wasn’t completely fated by their great underlying metrics earlier in the season — odds are, that disappointing record also said something real about them. read more
Next season, the Ohio State men’s basketball team will have a fresh group of faces, including top-notch recruits, and most recently, a new assistant coach.Dave Dickerson, former head basketball coach at Tulane University, joins the Buckeyes as they try to improve on their 29-8 performance this past season.“I’m very excited to start at The Ohio State University,” said Dickerson. “Just working at an institution where you know you have everything available to win at a high level, it’s an idea that’s very entertaining.”For Dickerson, leaving Tulane and heading to OSU was an easy decision to make.“When this job came up at Ohio State, it’s one of the best jobs in the country,” he said. “It’s a great situation.”Coach Thad Matta has wanted to make Davidson a member of the coaching staff since he began at Ohio State six years ago, and finally, the pieces fell together.“With Dave, six years ago I kind of begged and pleaded with him,” said Matta. “I’ve just always been impressed with him, his style. I was going to wait as long as I needed to for him, but fortunately we got things worked out quickly.”The Tulane program had registered just one season better than .500 before Dickerson took over. Dickerson, who coached there for five years, recorded back-to-back winning seasons in 2006-07 and 2007-08.Coaching at the collegiate level is very familiar to him, as he has been involved at the assistant level or higher since 1990. Nine of his 30 years coaching were spent as an assistant at the University of Maryland, his alma mater. “That was probably one of the best stretches of coaching I’ve had in my 20 years,” said Dickerson. “In my tenure at Maryland we had two Final Fours and winning a National Championship, winning an ACC Championship. Those things were good, but I think when you’re at Ohio State you can have the opportunity to do that same thing.”Matta is excited to bring in someone who not only has experience coaching, but also in playing the game. Dickerson played basketball at Maryland from 1985 to 1989.Dickerson has immediately stepped into the role of assistant coach, replacing Alan Major, who was appointed head coach at Charlotte two weeks ago.“When this job became available with Alan’s departure, he was the only guy I talked to,” Matta said. “We moved pretty quick. He’s a tremendous person and knows how to do things the right way. I love the fact that he helped build a National Championship program as an assistant coach.”With OSU boasting the second-best recruiting class in the country heading into next season, Dickerson feels that OSU will remain an elite program.“The great thing for me is that I’m heading into one of the best schools in the country,” Dickerson said. “I think people all over the country know that Ohio State is one of those schools who can not only contend for a National Championship in football, but also in basketball.”Although Dickerson has no coaching experience in the Midwest, he is confident heading into his newest program.“I’m intense as a basketball coach,” Dickerson said. “But I understand that I am an assistant coach now, so I will do whatever I can do to fit in with the staff here at Ohio State.” read more
Amazon is in the business of selling things, and it can’t sell things it doesn’t have. Certainly one thing Amazon wants to sell as many of as possible is the Kindle, but it’s completely sold out of the WiFi-only Kindle Paperwhite. You know what that means — new Kindles are probably incoming.The Paperwhite was the first Kindle with any kind of lighted display. It’s not backlit, though. The screen is reflective, so Amazon used a front-lit system with an LED at the edge, which illuminates a light guide layer on top of the touch panel. Before it went out of stock, the WiFi Paperwhite was going for $119 with special offers (ads). The ad-free version was $139. The $179 3G Paperwhite is still in stock.The Kindle Paperwhite came out almost a year ago, so it’s probably eligible for a refresh. Like all past Kindle’s the device has done well and gotten positive reviews — it’s currently sitting at 4.3 stars on Amazon. It could always be improved, though. If an update is in the works, Amazon could make the panel’s lighting a little more even. There are also no speakers on the current Paperwhite, which means no audio books or text to speech. That would be an easy fix.Amazon doesn’t usually make a big deal about iterative refreshes of the Kindle line anymore. The old version just vanishes or gets a price drop, and a new one starts shipping. That might be what we’re seeing here. The E Ink Kindles are cheap enough that a substantial number of users upgrade with the new version comes out — it’s in impulse-buy territory for a lot of people. So get your wallets ready. read more
DrivingIf you have to get into your car for any sort of journey over the next few days, you might encounter snow and ice.That means using a whole new set of skills when you’re behind the wheel.Here’s everything you need to know about what you can do to prepare and what to do when driving.ClothesWhat to wear when it’s cold? Source: Mountain Warehouse/YouTubeAs Rei Co-Op outlines in this handy layering guide (which ostensibly is for people who are outdoors for a trek, but really works for us here too), you need to think of layering in this way: 2010: Dublin Civil Defence snow rescue gets to work. Wednesday 28 Feb 2018, 12:15 AM 41,363 Views Base layer – such as thermal underwear, a sporty base layer (which you can get in running or outdoor shops) or even a form-fitting, cotton top. If you’re out and about, you might want to wear a proper base layer made of sweat-wicking material. But if you just want to keep warm, a thermal top or cotton top will do.Middle layer – this insulates you, keeping your body heat close to your skin instead of letting it escape. Think thicker tops, or a snug jumper or hoodie. Feel free to put another bottom layer on if you’re particularly cold. It’s better to have to strip off layers than to just put a big jumper on over a short-sleeved t-shirt.Outer layer – your ‘shell’ which protects you from the elements. So if you’re heading out, that means a warm and hopefully waterproof jacket. Also: gloves, a hat, and suitable boots and socks.If you’re going to be out in the snow for a longer time, or for an activity, there are some handy tips here.The bottom line? Think layers, use what you have in your wardrobe, and don’t be tempted to go outside in cold temperatures without your gloves or hat.HouseThere is a risk of the electricity going out today – not on a huge scale, but enough that you might end up suffering a power outage.ESB Networks says that heavy snow and ice can cause power lines to sag and potentially break, though this isn’t very common. If you do see a broken power line, stay well clear.The types of winds due with Storm Emma aren’t particularly out of the ordinary compared to what we get in the winter, but the bigger issue may be that if there is heavy snow, repair crews may take longer to get to power lines in order to fix them. Source: ESB Networks/YouTubeESB Networks is reminding customers to be prepared:Have plenty of food and water availableHave torches with spare batteries availableMake sure your phone is charged and, if possible, have a phone charger at hand for your carPlease check that elderly or vulnerable relatives and neighbours are prepared to be without electricityIf you have electric gates, please check you know how to work them manually.And in the case of a power cut:Never approach broken lines or damaged poles, and keep children and animals away – report damage to ESB Networks at 1850 372 999 and listen to recorded messages carefullyTurn off electric cookers, ovens, irons, etc. if electricity supply is lostLeave a light switched on so you know when power has been restoredTake extra care if using candles, oil lamps or other naked flamesTest smoke alarms with fresh batteriesEnsure adequate ventilation if using gas heaters.If you want to check for fault and repair updates, you can do so on the ESB Power Check website or its PowerCheck app. If your fault isn’t logged, go to this link – or call 1850 372 999.

It’s a myth to leave the tap running, it can cause problems elsewhere,” Burke told us.He said that if the water is left running continuously it risks freezing the drain as it’s leaving the sink. “It can block up the drain and the sink will fill up and overflow, I’ve seen it happen on a few occasions.” Read his tips on what you should do here.Here’s Irish Water’s advice.Meanwhile, here are the Red Cross’s tips for staying safe before and during a winter storm.MedicinesHere’s a pharmacist on why you should make sure you have a supply of essential medicines in your home before the storm hits.Daragh Connolly, President of the IPU, said people may be unable to get prescriptions in the coming days and should “ensure they have enough of their essential medication to last them until the beginning of next week”.He also urged members of the public to check that older family members and neighbours have all their required medications and, if not, to contact the person’s pharmacy.FoodIf there’s one takeaway from this storm, it’s that Irish people really love bread. We are so afraid of running out of this treasured tasty foodstuff that we’ve ransacked supermarket shelves.But there are other comfort food options around. A weather event like this is a good time to use up pasta, rice, lentils and spices. Your freezer is another source of meals.But what other foods should you stock up on?Non-perishable goods (eg tinned chickpeas, tinned beans, crackers)Food that doesn’t require refrigerationFood that will last in cool temperatures (eg some solid butters)Food that doesn’t have to be cooked (eg vegetables you can eat raw, such as carrots; fruit; bagged popcorn; butter; some cheeses; nuts; crackers; granola; dried fruit)Biscuits. Sure look.PetsIf you’re worried about your dog or cat – or gerbil – during the big freeze, here are some tips from the ISPCA: Source: ISPCAPet Mania also advises:If you don’t have a shed to move your pet’s kennel into, then consider housing them indoors to ensure they are kept safe from the cold temperatures. This is particularly true for cats. You can also use extra bedding for insulation, such as straw and hay in their sleeping areas.Wrap up canine friends with dog coats for extra warmth.Make sure they have plenty of fresh water and food – pets might also need a little extra food as they will be burning energy to stay warm. Keep a check to ensure that water supplies do not freeze over.If your pet is feeding outside, use plastic bowls instead of metal to prevent their tongues getting stuck if it is too cold.Similarly to humans, dogs and cats can get frostbite. Pay extra attention to any signs of discolouration, pain or unusual blisters on their ears and paws.Finally, don’t forget about your garden birds who would appreciate some high fat foods like peanuts to boost their energy reserves.Here’s more on keeping your pet safe.NeighboursThe cold weather is bad no matter what age you are – but it’s particularly difficult if you have limited mobility or are elderly.Justin Moran of Age Action has urged neighbours of older people to check in on them. You know what to do – that friendly knock on the door might be of huge benefit to someone.Final tipsStay safe. Don’t go investigating mountains or check out your local pier in a snowstorm.Carry a phone with you when you go outside – put it in a resealable small plastic bag or pouch if you’re worried it’ll get wet.Speaking of phones, have your devices charged and any back-up battery packs charged too.Don’t leave candles unattended.Eat those emergency chocolate biscuits.Read: All of our coverage on the current weather> 32 Comments http://jrnl.ie/3874875 WHETHER THERE’S SNOW on the ground where you are located or not, you’ll be gearing yourself up for a day of cold weather today.You may end up having to deal with anything from flurries of snow to a power cut, so here are our tips on how to cope.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greece last week commemmorated the 36th anniversary of the Polytechnic uprising of 1974 with a series of events in Athens.President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias and Parliament President Filippos Petsalnikos on Tuesday laid wreaths at the Polytechnic monument commemorating the uprising and those who died, while Prime Minister George Papandreou and main opposition New Democracy former education deputy minister Spyros Taliadouros laid wreaths at the monument on Monday, and Communist Party of Greece (KKE) leader Aleka Papariga laid a wreath on Sunday.In a message marking the 36th anniversary of the Athens Polytechnic uprising, Papoulias stressed that it was for all Greeks “a reference point, a reason for collective self-respect and conviction that light can emerge from darkness.”“Those who had stood up against the junta of 1967-1974 constituted models for behaviour, life stance, and a code of values,” Papoulias said.“In reality, they do not belong to those that cause them but to those in whose name they take place. “And they are almost always expressions of revolt and demands by a younger generation that always leads the way in major reversals,” the president stated.Prime Minister George Papandreou stressed that fighting for a cause is “always relevant.” whilst placeing flowers at the memorial to the students killed in the November 17, 1973 uprising against the military junta.The November 17, 1973 students’ uprising at the Athens Polytechnic contributed to the collapse of the seven-year military dictatorship in Greece (1967-74).A three-day commemoration is held each year in tribute to the uprising against the military dictatorship ruling Greece at that time, which was violently put down in the early hours of November 17, 1973 when the army and tanks were brought in to disperse students that had taken over the Athens Polytechnic building. read more
Google celebrates the 971st birthday of Omar KhayyamgoogleGoogle honours the 971st birthday of the infamous Persian poet, mathematician, astronomer and philosopher Omar Khayyam with a special doodle of him on Saturday.Khayyam was born in Nishapur (then a major centre of Zoroastrians) in Iran during the medieval times on 18 May 1048, under the Seljuq dynasty. His father was a Zoroastrian who had converted to Islam.According to the sources, Khayyam’s full name was Abu’l Fath Omar ibn Ibrahim al-Khayyam. He was born into a family of tent-makers, which in Arab means Khayyam.He is widely recognised for his astronomical expertise and his poetry. With his astronomical proficiency, he designed the Jalali calendar, a solar calendar with a very precise 33-year intercalation cycle, which later became the base for many other calendars and was used until the 20th century. Omar KhayyamIBTimesEven though he became famous for his poems posthumously, Khayyam’s poems are celebrated by the people worldwide. It is written in four lines and is published in ‘The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam’.As a mathematician, Khayyam is known for his work on the classification and solution of cubic equations. He was the first to give a general method for solving cubic equations. Khayyam also contributed to the understanding of the parallel axiom and at the age of 22, he had already created a name for himself within the field of mathematics.He furthermore wrote a treatise on extracting binomial theorem and the nth root of natural numbers, which has been lost.He died at the age of 83 on December 4, 1131, and was buried in the Khayyam Garden at Nishapur. read more
Stay on target Lego Unveils ‘Friends’ 25th Anniversary Central Perk SetLego Built a Life-Sized Astronaut to Celebrate Apollo 11 50th Anniversary It’s no secret that Lego is experimenting with more sustainable ways of producing its signature bricks and minifigs. They’re taking a big step toward that goal with the release of a new Lego Ideas set this week.The latest fan-submitted set to get the green light is the Tree House. Its creator, Kevin Feeser, first posted the incredibly detailed, sprawling scene in the fall of 2017. By Halloween it hit 100 votes and earned 365 days to get the other 9,900 needed to make it to the review round.(Photo Credit: Lego)It took less than four months. Now, Kevin’s set has been tweaked, packaged, and it’s ready to go on sale. And it’s Lego’s most sustainable set ever.That’s because of all the foliage. The Tree House features more than 180 botanical elements and they’re all made from Lego’s new polyethylene which is produced from sustainably-sourced sugarcane.(Photo Credit: Lego)There’s a lot more to see here, naturally. The sprawling set measures over 14-inches high, is roughly 10 inches wide and deep. It’s packed with delightful details like the winding staircase, a crane for hoisting supplies, a telescope for stargazing, a babbling brook, and even a swing for the minifigs to chill out on.As stunning is the Tree House is to look at, make no mistake: it’s definitely meant to be played with. You can remove the roof from each room and take a peek inside. This thing has its own well-appointed bathroom and cozy sleeping quarters where the minifigs can catch a few Zzzs. The kids even get a separate bedroom to themselves!(Photo Credit: Lego)When they’re ready to head back down to the forest floor, there’s room for everyone at the picnic table and the bonfire is always blazing.Just like a real tree house, there’s a lot of serious hard work to be done before you get to play around. It’s all part of the fun when you’re building with Lego — especially when you’re knocking out a 3,000-plus piece set like this one!The Tree House goes on sale to the general public on August 1 for $199. Lego VIPs can order it tomorrow.More on Geek.com:Lego Built a Life-Sized Astronaut to Celebrate the Apollo 11 50th AnniversaryLego’s Massive ‘Stranger Things’ Set Will Turn Your World Upside DownLego’s New Boost Coding Kits Let You Build and Control R2-D2 read more
