Lanka not opposed to Indian nuclear power

“Sri Lankan Government has neither opposed nor registered their protest for any Nuclear Power Plant on Indian soil,” he said.However he said the Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Authority has a mandate to protect people and the environment of Sri Lanka from unwanted effects of ionizing radiation.“It is the responsibility of the Government of Sri Lanka through the Sri Lanka Atomic Energy Authority to plan a Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program. Such a program was drafted with the help of the Disaster Management Centre,” he said. “As there are power plants in India close to our country, the only possible thing we can do is to make a bilateral agreement with India under the provisions of these conventions to exchange of information of status of their power plants and emergency plans and to obtain assistance in case of a nuclear accident in India,” Wijeywardana added. Wijayawardana said that the International Atomic Energy Authority (IAEA)  has offered to establish an early warning detector system and the equipment would be delivered according to the IAEA Department of Technical Cooperation. Wijayawardana rubbished those claims and said that such faulty information could raise tensions between the two neighbors. The Indian media had reported last week that Sri Lanka had raised concerns over Indian nuclear energy sites particularly after India had voted against Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council recently. India on Sunday said one of its nuclear power sites at Kundankulam was almost complete and ready to provide electricity to the national grid.Wijayawardana said that Sri Lanka fully understands the need of utilizing nuclear energy for electricity generation and India has every right to use nuclear technology in meeting the requirements of electrical energy. Sri Lanka on Monday insisted it does not oppose the construction of nuclear power plants in India and was only taking measures to protect Sri Lanka from any radiation.Chairman of the Sri Lankan Atomic Energy Authority Dr. Ranjith Wijayawardana, in a statement, said that Sri Lanka has merely been discussing with India the safety measures to be taken in the event of a nuclear disaster. read more

Allergan expands recall of Biocell textured breast implants following Canadian ban

TORONTO — Allergan PLC says it’s voluntarily recalling Biocell textured breast implants and tissue expanders worldwide, a move that follows Canada’s suspension of the product’s licences due to potential risks from cancer.The international pharmaceutical company says in a press release from Dublin, Ireland that it’s issuing the recall as a precaution following recently updated safety information from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.However, Health Canada announced in May that it had suspended the licences for Biocell macro-textured breast implants after completing a safety review that was launched two years ago.The Canadian agency said at the time that it had been notified of 22 confirmed Canadian cases of breast-implant-associated lymphoma involving Allergan’s Biocell breast textured implants, but no cases with smooth implants.Allergan told Health Canada at the time it would voluntarily recall unused Biocell devices from the Canadian market.The company now says healthcare providers worldwide should immediately stop using Biocell saline-filled and silicone-filled textured breast implants and tissue expanders, and unused devices are being recalled from all markets.

Middle East UN envoy sees consensus on peace aims but not on

Terje Roed-Larsen, the Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, met today with Lebanon’s President, Emile Lahoud and other senior Lebanese officials as well as ambassadors of the five countries that are permanent members on the UN Security Council. Today’s discussions followed talks in Damascus with Syrian Foreign Minister Farouk Al Sharaa. In all his meetings, Mr. Roed-Larsen reviewed in detail recent developments in the region and focused on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In addition, discussions touched on the full range of issues related to all tracks of the Middle East peace process. The envoy noted that there was one positive development in the Middle East – a growing consensus that a solution had to be based on UN Security Council resolutions 242 and 338, the principle of an end to occupation and, in the Palestinian context, the creation of a State of Palestine. The bad news, he said, was that the “parties are far away from agreeing on how to walk towards that goal.” Mr. Roed-Larsen reiterated his position that “the bridge back to the negotiating table had to be built on political, economic and security pillars.” In the absence of political progress, he expressed doubt that the “recent relative calm could last.” Expressing concern about the continuing economic and social difficulties in parts of the region, the envoy noted that the UN was active in all fields. In addition to Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s political efforts, the UN peacekeeping missions helped maintain stability in the tense region while UN agencies – particularly the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) – assisted in the economic and humanitarian realm. read more

Government to change policy on sales representatives who prey on new mothers

The move comes after this newspaper exposed how  sales representatives were approaching mothers in their hospital beds, and going on to pass their details onto third parties.   The Sunday Telegraph understands that ministers at the Department of Health and Social Care are examining plans to tighten the current guidance on the presence of commercial staff in hospitals. Sales representatives who approach new mothers on hospital wards are facing a Government crackdown,  amid concerns mothers are being preyed on by firms within hours of giving birth. Caroline Dinenage, the care minister, has said hospitals needed to do more to protect new mothers from “intrusive” sales representatives who “pressure”… read more

Column Shatters focus is on whistleblowers themselves rather than their allegations

first_imgTHE DECISION OF the Justice Minister to finally initiate an independent statutory investigation regarding the controversy surrounding the administration of the penalty points system is welcome. Along with other independent TDs, I have been calling for such an inquiry since October 2012.However a closer inspection of how the Minister proposes this matter be investigated reveals his true focus to be the whistleblowers themselves, rather than the issues raised by their allegations of widespread Fixed Charge Notice (FCN) cancellations by senior Gardaí.The Minister’s statement proposes the first-ever investigation under Section 102 (5) of the Garda Síochána Act 2005 “in the light of circumstances where allegations are being continuously made… circumstances have now arisen where it is in the public interest to refer the allegations being made… including issues relating to the preservation of the integrity of Garda records to the Garda Ombudsman (GSOC).” His aim is clear.No commitment to a cultural reform processThe Minister’s statement claims that there is now in place an audited Garda oversight system, and indeed the Commissioner himself proudly announced during his Public Accounts Committee (PAC) appearance last week that the first of those audits in November/December found a 100 per cent compliance rate. However, the system of auditing initiated by the Commissioner betrays the familiar hallmarks of internal examination, alongside the absence of any real accountability and transparency.This was demonstrated by the involvement of the Assistant Commissioner and the failure to publish any supporting report setting out either auditing methods or figures. A biased internal investigation in March 2013 by the Assistant Commissioner, (which the Minister’s statement says “dealt with” the allegations) found few issues, and then concluded in the publishing of a report without any appendices or evidence to support its tidy conclusions, resulting in the inevitable lingering of public mistrust.The Minister’s statement then confirms the adoption of the familiar “rule tightening” approach to dealing with the isolated issues that have arisen, rather than committing to any sort of organisational and cultural reform process.Minimising the independence of GSOCSection 102 (5) provides that, if it is in the public interest, the Minister may request GSOC to “investigate any matter that appears to the Minister to indicate that a member of the Garda Síochána may have done anything referred to in subsection (4)” ie, either a breach of discipline or a criminal offence. Thus it will be a matter for the Minister (and not GSOC) to decide which Gardai are to be investigated by GSOC in accordance with the Minister’s subjective belief as to whether the conduct of those Gardaí reaches the threshold required.This approach clearly minimises the independence of GSOC who await formal referral but have announced this morning their intention to commence “what will be a very wide-ranging investigation.” Although there is no reason to doubt their intentions, the Minister has not yet provided any confirmation or details as to the terms of reference of this investigation, aside from the above.The Minister has pointedly not stated that the investigation will include an examination of the conduct of the three Garda officers who were the subject of disciplinary inquiry according to Assistant Commissioner O’Mahony’s March 2013 internal review. Nor has the Minister confirmed that his Section 102 (5) referral will include an examination of the conduct of the 39 senior Gardaí who have received letters due to their cancellations of Fixed Charge Notices being “outside of Garda policy guidelines.”In addition to this lack of clarity, the practicalities of investigating FCN cancellations in the absence of any independent access to the PULSE system or any remit to examine the role of the Commissioner, alongside a long-held tradition of Garda Síochána resistance to external investigation, will place formidable obstacles in GSOC’s path. Furthermore, it is doubtful whether Section 102 (5) permits an investigation into the retired Garda John Wilson at all, although the serving whistleblower Garda would clearly come within its remit.A Section 106 investigation would allow for wider examinationIf the Minister’s intention was to properly and cleanly investigate the whistleblowers’ allegations and the issues currently being examine by the PAC once and for all, a Section 106 investigation would be the obvious choice. Section 106 of the Garda Síochána Act 2005 allows for a wider examination of the practises, policies and procedures of An Garda Síochána, along with a set of recommendations and a time limit to be imposed by the Minister for speedy completion.Unfortunately, GSOC’s hands are tied unless the Minister orders a Section 106 investigation – a legislative deficiency in our policing oversight mechanism that was severely criticised by United Nations Rapporteur Margaret Sekaggya in her report to the Government last March.The Minister recently refused my request in the Dail to re-consider GSOC’s request for permission to investigate under Section 106 the issues surrounding the policing of Corrib Gas Pipeline, in light of recent allegations that Shell E & P Ireland arranged for the delivery of a large consignment of alcohol to Belmullet Garda Station in December 2007.Rather than provide for any of the many legislative changes repeatedly requested by GSOC themselves, by the UN Special Rapporteur, or any that I proposed in my Garda Síochána (Amendment) 2013 Bill, the Minister’s statement concludes by appearing to suggest the introduction of legislation to allow GSOC a quasi-disciplinary role within An Garda Síochána, a power which may not be appropriate for a statutory body established to deal with the complaints of citizens against Gardaí.It is almost two years since the issue was raisedAlthough admittedly the PAC may not be the ideal forum for the full and proper investigation of these matters, the whistleblowers have exhausted every other avenue and the defensive resistance at every turn of both the Minister and the Commissioner to any sort of independent, fair and transparent investigation has led directly to this situation. The Minister’s latest move to involve GSOC only under the restrictive terms of Section 102(5) may be as a result of the Commissioner’s “dialogue with the Minister… over the last number of days”. The reality is that the only real change of late is that we have seen the Commissioner come before the PAC and give a poor performance. This has to be worrying for the Minister.At this stage, the most important issue is not who had penalty points terminated, but rather how the whole matter has been dealt with. It is almost two years since the issue was first brought to the attention of the Minister for Justice and his Commissioner, and all that time has been used to minimise, disprove, dismiss, and misrepresent the issues to the public – no appetite has been shown for reaching the truth.Given that the Commissioner was so eager to head off the prospect of the whistleblowers appearing before the PAC, along with his promptness in welcoming the Minister’s latest initiative, one could be forgiven for remaining more than a little sceptical.Mick Wallace is a TD for Co Wexford.Read: Shatter: ‘I’m not trying to silence whisteblowers’Read: We’ll find out later today if a serving garda sergeant will appear before the PACRead: Shatter slams ‘disturbing’ PAC comments, asks Ombudsman to probe penalty points issuelast_img read more

Exit from euro not an option Tsipras says

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greece’s exit from the euro is not an option for Syriza, party leader Alexis Tsipras said in an interview with Kathimerini newspaper appearing on Sunday, accusing his political opponents of danger-mongering, while adding that the first action of a Syriza government will be to annul the Memorandum.Tsipras attributed the big rise in Syriza’s popularity to the mistakes of his opponents, accusing New Democracy (ND) and Pasok of initially supporting the Memorandum that leads to disaster and then of leading the country to repeat elections although they could have formed a coalition government after the inconclusive May 6 elections.The Syriza leader said that if he forms a government after the June 17 repeat elections, he will repeal the Memorandum through appropriate legislation.He also said that an exit from the euro was not a choice of his, and accused his political opponents of danger-mongering.“As for an exit from the euro, it is being put forward as a ‘red line’ in a very hypocritical and self-serving way that infers that if we want to stay in the euro we have no other choice than to materialise the Memorandum,” he said.Campaign rally in AgrinioAddressing a campaign rally in Agrinio on Saturday night, Tsipras made an overture to the voters of the other political parties.He asked voters to put their trust in Syriza, without bias and regardless of where they cast their vote in the inconclusive May 6 elections.Tsipras said that the hour of a Left government in Greece was approaching, and that “just one small step separates the dream from the reality”, adding that this step will be taken on June 17 when the people give Syriza a clear and strong mandate of power, democracy, dignity and hope, for the immediately annulment of the Memorandum and renegotiation of the adverse conditions of the loan agreement.In that respect, he described the upcoming elections as a referendum against the Memorandum.In a scathing attack against Pasok and New Democracy, Tsipras said that the two-party system was waging a final, desperate “battle of the rearguard”, and was a “world that is leaving, a closed system of power that organised the rotting, dependent, corrupt and disreputable political establishment of the two-party system of ND and Pasok”.“ND and Pasok were on the way out after having looted the country, because they attempted to surrender the people and the country, chained hand and foot, to the lenders, because they represent and symbolize a morally and politically demerited model of governance”, Tsipras added.

NTSB Recommends Federal Takeover of Metrorail

first_imgThe National Transportation Safety Board, recently recommended a federal takeover of the crumbling subway system in the Washington metropolitan. area.Following a series of safety investigations of Metrorail, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), recently recommended a federal takeover of the crumbling subway system, which transports an estimated 200 million passengers annually.The takeover was suggested in the wake of critical problems including electrical wiring that could catch fire, poor staff training, and decaying equipment. The NTBS proposed placing Metrorail under the authority of the Federal Railway Administration. While such a move could help address system-wide infirmity and re-engage public confidence, Jackie Jeter and members of the Amalgamated Transit Union – Local 689, said they believe it could also adversely impact Black employees and riders.“We are dealing more than ever with a system that is wearing down, has gotten old, and is in need of repair, sooner rather than later,”  Jeter told the AFRO. “Not only does it impact the rider, but also the employees. Just as passengers complain that they are getting home 2-to 3-hours late because of track work, employees are not afforded time for basic safety checks, bathroom breaks, eating, or enough recovery time,” Jeter said.Jeter points to an NTSB admonishment made in 2009 about employee fatigue. Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) immediately adopted that language, spent money on a study of worker fatigue, and noted the same concerns.  It did not, however, according to Jeter, address the poor scheduling or lack of time to perform safety checks.Of equal concern is the potential separation of the bus and rail systems, placing Metro buses in the hands of private operators that could mean a reduction in workforce and loss of benefits. “We have been plagued with this cloud of privatization, but it is a very big part of the bus systems here,” Jeter said. “Bus companies like DASH, Fairfax Connector, and the Circulator are running services formerly run by WMATA. The drivers make less money, have [fewer] benefits, and the companies are run [by] a foreign private company. We are taking U.S. dollars overseas and they do not offer the same benefits (including pensions) in America as they do in France or England.” FirstGroup, in the United Kingdom owns the D.C. Circulator; names of the other owners could not be collected before press time.  Even so, all of the companies say they are operated by U.S. management teams, but are foreign owned.But with a growing popularity for bicycles and other car-share programs in the District, the fate of Metro routes and riders remain unclear. “There are people who have a two-fold reason for leaving Metro – they are not getting back on until the problems are fixed – safety; and they need to be reassured about reliability,” Jeter said. “People don’t mind paying more money to ride the bus or rail, provided they get to their destinations on time. We have got to make the system viable again for employees and riders.”last_img read more

You Can Use Chickens to Kill Enemies in Breath of the Wild

first_img Rhythm Game Spin-Offs We Want After ‘Cadence of Hyrule’Fan-Made ‘Zelda’ Tabletop Game Returns You to the Wild Stay on target The Legend of Zelda games have featured some nasty creatures over the years. As any fan of the series can attest, the most vicious of all are cuccos. These seemingly harmless chickens can and will kill you if you provoke them. This is also the case in the recently released Breath of the Wild. If you attack a cucco, the chicken’s buddies will attack en mass and bring you to a swift end.What was once a long-running in-game joke can now be used to players’ advantage. If an enemy attacks a cucco, he’s going to have a very bad day. This is thanks to how Breath of the Wild is built. Unlike most other Zelda games, Breath of the Wild is very systems-based. Everything in the game is reactive. For example, if you swing a torch near grass you’ll create a fire. If you shoot electric arrows into a body of water, enemies in the water will take extra damage. These reactive systems also apply to cuccos.As this GIF from videogamedunkey shows, if an enemy hits Link while he is holding a cucco, the game will register it as the attacker. The club-wielding foe is no match against the cucco army. The chickens won’t stop there either. Any enemy that is close by will also meet a swift, feathery demise. It’s a silly way to kill enemies, but the results speak for themselves. Using chickens to vanquish foes is frighteningly efficient.This discovery will no doubt lead to many players wanting to see how far they can get using this method. Personally, I’d like to know if it’s possible to finish the entire game using only chickens. This might be difficult considering how you would have to keep returning to towns or farms to get new cuccos. But if there’s a will there’s a way. I look forward to one day posting about the crazy gamer that beat Calamity Ganon with a flock of angry chickens.last_img read more

HandsOn Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox One X is the

first_img Square-Enix Officially Announces New Tomb Raider GameBest Games to Get for the PlayStation 4 Pro Stay on target The Xbox One X is set to launch in just a few short weeks. As Microsoft has touted, this machine will be “the most powerful console ever.” One title that will take advantage of the system’s six teraflops is Rise of the Tomb Raider. This game already looked great on Xbox 360, PC, and PS4. How will it appear on Microsoft’s upcoming system? I had a chance to check out the game last week and saw the enhancements first-hand. It is safe to say that Xbox One X owners will be happy about this one.As you would expect, Rise of the Tomb Raider (RotTR from this point forward) runs at a native 4K resolution on Xbox One X. It was developed by Nixxes, who also handled the PC, PS4, and Xbox 360 ports. The company has proven it knows how to get the most out of hardware. On Xbox One X, Nixxes was able to take things to another level.Like the PS4 version, this port of RotTR has a slew of graphical options. There is the aforementioned 4K mode which delivers a pure 2160p signal. Enriched 4K mode contains more graphical in-game effects such as volumetric fog, increased anti-aliasing, increased foliage, and more. The game runs at 30 frames-per-second on both 4K modes. Lastly, users have the option to play at a standard 1080p resolution. While this mode displays fewer pixels than either of the 4K modes, it does enable the game to run at 60fps. Because of this, gamers can choose between performance or resolution.AdChoices广告I’ve played RotTR several times on each of the available platforms. As I made my way through the Syrian level’s familiar caves, hidden chambers, and aqueducts, it was like playing for the first time. There were a few instances where I almost botched certain jumps or got caught in easily avoidable traps because I was too busy looking at all of the new details. I was especially impressed by the lighting and how the environment was affected by it.I was told that it wasn’t hard to port RotTR to Xbox One X. The game was already a graphical powerhouse even on the Xbox 360. It was really just a matter of further enhancing what was already there and optimizing it for the system. The build I played was actually an alpha version. Since development is still ongoing, it’s reasonable to believe it will look even better when the patch is eventually released.Those who already own the game on Xbox One can enjoy the enhanced Xbox One X edition by simply installing a patch. RotTR on Xbox One is fairly cheap these days, so securing a copy won’t break the bank. By releasing this as an update, Microsoft is wisely ensuring that both old and new customers are treated fairly.Square-Enix and Crystal Dynamics have certainly gotten a lot of mileage out of RotTR for the past two years. This isn’t an issue since the game is truly one of this generation’s best. Its fitting that this former Xbox One exclusive is also a showcase title for Xbox One X. Even those (like myself) who are somewhat skeptical about iterative consoles will have a hard time denying how impressive this port looks. It’s certainly worth it for those looking forward to purchasing “The X.”Rise of the Tomb Raider has at last revealed its final form.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
