UN Youth envoy launches coding competition to help solve climate crisis and

You can find more details of the competition, and how to enter, here.In an interview with UN News, Ms. Wickramanayake said that young people are key to solving global climate challenges, and drivers of change and innovation: “With the global climate movement led by young people, the United Nations supports youth’s effort in driving climate action”, said the Sri Lankan-born envoy.Since the launch of the Youth 2030 Strategy, the United Nations has been scaling up global, regional and national actions to meet young people’s needs, realize their rights and tap their possibilities as agents of change.As the Youth Envoy explains, Reboot The Earth is about creating a platform for young people to share their best innovative ideas and solutions with the United Nations, making them equal partners in the global fight against the climate crisis: “Reboot The Earth” presents young people with the opportunity to not only showcase their potential and ideas, but also to be recognized at the United Nations Climate Summit in September 2019”“We’re calling the winners of this year’s hackathon ‘The #ClimateReboot Troops’, and they will be able to collaborate with the United Nations on a long-term project, to work on, and scale up, solutions that will have a real-life impact in communities.” Jayathma Wickramanayake’s office describes the competition as a “global hackathon”, where teams of computer programmers, scientists and others, will try to solve a local climate crisis, that may be unique to each location in line with specific community needs, by creating new software, or improving upon existing programs.The hackathon will take place at United Nations Technology Innovation Labs in five different countries (Malaysia, Finland, India, Egypt and Germany), during August. Through a series of Tech Challenges, one team from each country will be selected to travel to New York City to attend a “Reboot The Earth” awards ceremony, during the UN Climate Summit on September 21.The winner from each country will get the chance to have their solution showcased at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, in January 2020, and the overall winner has the opportunity of seeing their software proposal developed at one of the UN Technology Innovation Labs.This Sept, young ppl will not only bring in their voices, they’ll bring solutions to climate challenges!Join #SummerOfSolutions & Reboot The Earth to present your ideas at the @UN Climate Summit!➡️https://t.co/VKFMdD1EId➡️https://t.co/2UxOWutJA5#ClimateReboot #ClimateAction pic.twitter.com/Q4iKoY5O22— UN Youth Envoy (@UNYouthEnvoy) July 22, 2019 read more

New study rates Washington on wellbeing of states children

first_imgLess than half of Washington’s 3- and 4-year-olds attend preschool of any kind.Just 8 percent of them have access to publicly funded, high-quality prekindergarten.Those are some of the findings from the KIDS COUNT Data Book, published annually by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and released Monday. (The Annie E. Casey Foundation also funds Education Lab.) The report ranks Washington 16th overall among the 50 states for child well-being.About 14 percent of children here live in poverty, about the same percentage as in 1990 and an improvement over 2010, during the aftermath of the recession, when the number was 18 percent. But the number of children growing up in poverty has increased as the state’s population has grown. And child poverty in Washington is disproportionately experienced by children of color.One of the reasons for so many kids in poverty is policy changes and budget cuts the state made to WorkFirst/Temporary Assistance for Needy Families during the recession, said Julie Watts, deputy director of the Washington State Budget and Policy Center, a nonpartisan research and policy organization. The programs, which assist families with young children, are now serving a smaller portion of children in poverty than at any time in their history, she said.Families that have been dropped from the program because of its time-limit policy are disproportionately black and American Indian. Many of the families cut from the program are homeless, or have at least one family member with a severe mental health problem, she said.“We know the outcomes for families are really, really bad when they get kicked off this program,” Watts said. “What’s important to realize is that these are families with young children.” Watts said she and others testified before the Legislature this year to try to boost funding for the program, but were unable to get the cuts restored.last_img read more

EXCLUSIVE Deloitte to discuss gender pay gap reporting at Employee Benefits Live

first_imgEXCLUSIVE: Emma Codd (pictured), managing partner for talent at professional services organisation Deloitte, will discuss recommendations and practicalities around gender pay gap reporting at Employee Benefits Live 2017.The session, titled ‘Gender pay gap reporting: getting it right’, will form part of the HR strategy conference stream on Tuesday 10 October.During the session, Codd will describe the proactive steps that Deloitte has taken in calculating, publishing and addressing its gender pay gap. She will share recommendations and practical advice based on the organisation’s own reporting experiences, detailing considerations for employers when reporting their organisation’s own gender pay differences.Codd will highlight the advantages of reporting an organisation’s gender pay gap early, providing insights into the practicalities surrounding Deloitte’s two previous gender pay gap reports, as well as sharing the tips learned when compiling its first formal report under gender pay gap reporting regulations this year.She will also emphasise the importance of creating a narrative alongside an organisation’s gender pay gap report, which employers can use to clearly set out and promote the actions or measures they are planning to undertake to tackle any gender pay gaps within the business.She said: “Any successful business is looking to achieve diversity, both from a gender perspective but also other aspects, so social mobility, ethnicity. A balanced workforce is a good workforce and from a gender perspective, the pay gap reporting is one step I believe will start driving more change.“The fact that businesses are now required to be transparent and the fact that for [employees’] future employers and other stakeholders, including their current employers, [staff will] be able to look at what [the organisation is] doing to try and eradicate that gap. That’s a position that we’ve never been in before from a UK perspective.“[Employers should] think carefully about when [they] publish. What’s really important is that [employers] get the narrative right and that the narrative clearly sets out the actions [the organisation is] taking, or going to take, to make sure that [it gets] rid of that gender pay gap. A key take away from my session will be when [employers] do publish, they use the narrative to set out what [they are] going to do, what [employers are already] doing and show that [employers] are actively seeking to address this.”Employee Benefits Live 2017 will take place on Tuesday 10 and Wednesday 11 October at Olympia National, London.For more information or to book your place.last_img read more

N Korea says still open to talks

first_imgThis combination of pictures created on 24 May 2018 shows US president Donald Trump speaking to the media as he makes his way to board Marine One at the White House on 23 May 2018 in Washington, DC, and an undated picture released from North Korea`s official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on 18 May 2018 of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un speaking while attending the first Enlarged Meeting of the 7th Central Military Commission of the Workers` Party of Korea (WPK) in Pyongyang. Photo: AFPNorth Korea responded on Friday with measured tones to US president Donald Trump’s decision to call off a historic summit with leader Kim Jong Un scheduled for next month, saying Pyongyang hoped for a “Trump formula” to resolve the standoff over its nuclear weapons programme.On Thursday, Trump wrote a letter to Kim to announce his withdrawal from what would have been the first-ever meeting between a serving US president and a North Korean leader in Singapore on 12 June.“Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it would be inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting,” Trump wrote.Trump’s announcement came after repeated threats by North Korea to pull out of the summit over what it saw as confrontational remarks by US officials.Friday’s response by North Korean vice foreign minister Kim Kye Gwan was more conciliatory, specifically praising Trump’s efforts.“We have inwardly highly appreciated president Trump for having made the bold decision, which any other US presidents dared not, and made efforts for such a crucial event as the summit,” Kim said in a statement carried by state media.“We even inwardly hoped that what is called “Trump formula” would help clear both sides of their worries and comply with the requirements of our side and would be a wise way of substantial effect for settling the issue,” he said without elaborating.North Korea has sharply criticised suggestions by Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton and vice president Mike Pence that it could share the fate of Libya if it did not swiftly surrender its nuclear arsenal. Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was deposed and murdered by NATO-backed militants after halting his nascent nuclear programme.Trump had initially sought to placate North Korea, saying that he was not pursuing the “Libya model” in getting the North to abandon its nuclear weapons program. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also said: “This is the president Trump model. He’s going to run this the way he sees fit.”Kim Kye Gwan said its recent criticisms against certain US officials had just been a reaction to unbridled American rhetoric, and that the current antagonism showed “the urgent necessity” for the summit.“His sudden and unilateral announcement to cancel the summit is something unexpected to us and we cannot but feel great regret for it,” Kim Kye Gwan said, while noting that North Korea remained open to resolving issues with Washington “regardless of ways at any time”.“The first meeting would not solve all, but solving even one at a time in a phased way would make the relations get better rather than making them get worse. The US should ponder over it,” Kim said.Nuclear Site DecommissionedTrump’s letter came just after North Korea announced it had completely dismantled its Punggye-ri nuclear test facility “to ensure the transparency of discontinuance of nuclear test”.Footage of the event broadcast by South Korean media showed explosions throwing huge clouds of dust and debris as they destroyed tunnel entrances as well as multiple wooden structures around the site.Other images showed North Korean officials displaying a map of the site, including several major tunnel complexes they said were unused and completely operational prior to being collapsed.Analysts worried the cancelling of the talks could prompt resumption in hostilities on the Korean peninsula, including renewed shorter-range missile tests or stepped-up cyber-attacks by Pyongyang and increased sanctions or deployment of new military assets by Washington.Trump, in scrapping the 12 June summit in Singapore, sounded a bellicose note, warning Kim of the United States’ greater nuclear might, reminiscent of the president’s tweet last year asserting that he had a “much bigger” nuclear button than Kim.Speaking later, Trump said the US military stood ready if Kim were to take any “foolish” action, and that the United States would continue its “maximum pressure” campaign of sanctions to press North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons.South Korean president Moon Jae-in, who worked hard to help set up the summit and urged Trump at a White House meeting on Tuesday not to let a rare opportunity slip away, said he was “perplexed” by the cancellation. He urged Trump and Kim to talk directly.US secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his South Korean counterpart, Kang Kyung-wha, held a phone call and agreed to continue working towards creating the right conditions for the United States and North Korea to talk, the South’s foreign ministry said in a statement on Friday.Pyongyang had not responded in recent days to queries by the United States about the leaders’ summit, Pompeo told a Senate hearing.Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono said Tokyo understands Trump’s decision to cancel the Singapore summit, Kyodo News reported.“It’s meaningless to have talks that don’t achieve results,” Kono told reporters on a visit to Mexico City, the news agency said.Japanese defence minister Itsunori Onodera also played down the significance of the cancelled meeting.“The important thing is not the US-North Korea meeting itself, but that the meeting becomes an opportunity to move forward in the issues of denuclearisation and abductions,” he told reporters in Toyko.last_img

Kaspersky Security Cloud Free review

first_imgKaspersky Security Cloud Free review by Martin Brinkmann on August 14, 2018 in Software – Last Update: August 14, 2018 – 13 commentsRussian security firm Kaspersky just launched a new version of Kaspersky Security Cloud Free, a free cloud-based security solution for Windows devices.One question that may come up is how Security Cloud Free differs from Kaspersky’s Free Antivirus solution the company revealed in 2016 and rolled out to a worldwide audience in 2017.The product’s name reveals the core difference between the two free security products. Kaspersky Security Cloud Free, also known as Adaptive Security, gives you remote control and management options that Kaspersky Free Antivirus does not support.Kaspersky notes that Security Cloud gets all new tools and features first before any other product. Kaspersky Security Cloud Free requires a (free) Kaspersky account to use the program whereas Free Antivirus has no such requirement.Kaspersky Security Cloud Free reviewYou are asked to sign in to a Kaspersky account or create a new one on start of the program. In fact, you cannot do anything until you sign in to the account.The program displays a series of screens on first sign in that highlights the program’s core functionality and some of the features reserved to the paid versions.The interface holds no surprises. You can run a scan directly from the startpage or check the recommendations the program has for you.Kaspersky recommended to configure backup and restore which is a feature of the software program, and to install the company’s password manager application and Internet Explorer extension.The backup functionality is basic but sufficient for creating backups of important files on the system. Kaspersky displays options to back up four different file types or locations, and an option to select custom locations for backup.The four available types are:All  files in My Documents and on the Desktop.All pictures and photos.All movies and videos.All music files.You can select one of the options only at a time which is a usability issue. The best option that you have is to use the custom folder selector as it supports adding multiple locations to a single backup job.Data can be backed up to a location on the device or online storage space that Kaspersky provides (for a price).Antivirus protection works as you’d expect it to. Kaspersky Security Cloud Free runs automatic scans regularly to find threats and eliminate them. You can run full, quick, and custom scans manually at any time, and schedule scans so that they run based on your preferences.The Password Manager and Secure Connection links work but both features are limited. Kaspersky displays links to two features in the main interface that are not available in the free version.Prompts to upgrade to a paid version are displayed when you select Privacy Protection or Safe Money.The My Tools link opens a new page with a large assortment of tools and information. Some of the tools are reserved for paying customers though.Weak Settings Control — Scans the computer for weak settings such as “file extensions are not displayed for known file types” so that they can be adjusted to improve security.My Kaspersky — Option to open the web interface and to disconnect the installation.Cloud Protection — Checks the connection status and displays stats.Quarantine — Manage quarantined items.Kaspersky Rescue Disk — create a rescue disk so that you can boot into a rescue environment when Windows does not boot anymore.My Network — Paid options to list connected devices in the network and includes network monitoring.Manage Applications — Paid options to check for software updates, control applications and to enable trusted applications mode to allow only trusted programs to run.Data Protection — The file shredder to delete files securely and the on-screen keyboard are available in the free version. Paid versions get scheduled backups, data encryption, and a health monitor for hard drives as well.Clean and optimize — Includes various tools to remove temporary data and improve privacy. PC Cleaner tool reserved for paying customers.Security Cloud Free supports additional features that you find highlighted in the program settings under protection.The app includes network attack blocker, system watcher, instant messenger anti-virus, and mail anti-virus protection. Not mentioned are the new Exploit Prevention feature and ransomware protection.The program works out of the box for the most part. While you can make some modifications, e.g. turn off select protective components, most users probably keep everything as is.The differencesKaspersky Security Cloud Free has limited functionality when compared to the Personal and Family versions. It features antivirus protection and the secure connection feature. The built-in password manager is limited to 15 passwords which makes it unusable for most users.Secure Connection is a VPN service that users of the software may connect to. The free version is good for 200 Megabytes of data per day and lacks paid options such as the selection of regions to connect.Kaspersky may suggest to connect to the VPN automatically based on the device’s connections status. If the device is connected to an Open WiFi network, Kaspersky may suggest to establish a VPN connection using Secure Connection to protect data and improve privacy.Features such as privacy protection, a built-in firewall, family sharing, kids protection, or safe money are reserved for paying customers.Web ManagementOne of the core differences to Free Antivirus is the new web management functionality that Kaspersky baked into Security Cloud Free.You can sign in to your account and manage all devices connected to it. Management includes interesting options such as running full or quick scans, running database updates, or managing components.You get status information, e.g. the product is up to date or “no threats detected”, on top of that.Options to link more devices to an account are provided and the web management interface’s use increases with every device you add to it as it provides you with better manageability options.Criticism and issuesKaspersky Security Cloud Free requires registration and enables remote management of connected devices automatically. Users who dislike the functionality may select Free Antivirus instead which comes without it.It is understandable that Kaspersky wants to earn money from its products but the main interface needs information about the “only in paid version” icon that is displayed on some of the options.Kaspersky highlights what the icon means on the “more tools” page but not on the main page.Kaspersky Labs has been in the news lately because of alleged ties to the Russian government and bans on Kaspersky products for government use in the United States and other regions.Closing Words and verdictKaspersky Security Cloud Free or Kaspersky Free Antivirus? The choice depends on whether you require remote management capabilities or not. The core functionality is nearly identical and while users of Security Cloud Free may get new features before Free Antivirus users, included protective features are mostly identical.Security Cloud is available for Android and iOS as well so that these may be managed from the management interface on the Kaspersky website.Kaspersky is always doing well in tests and Security Cloud Free is no exception to that as it shares protective features with other Kaspersky products. You can check out how Kaspersky products are ranked on AV-Test or AV Comparatives.Summary12345 Author Rating4 based on 16 votes Software Name Kaspersky Security Cloud FreeOperating System WindowsSoftware Category SecurityLanding Page https://www.kaspersky.com/downloads Advertisementlast_img read more

The report, conducted by the Radiology Business Management Association (RBMA), demonstrates that imaging use is far less than President Obama’s recommend 95 percent utilization rate.This amount of time imaging equipment is in use in outpatient settings is below the usage rates President Obama and the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) recommend Medicare utilize to calculate reimbursement for imaging. President Obama recently recommended CMS base its reimbursement formula on a 95 percent utilization rate for advanced imaging equipment, while MedPAC suggests a 90 percent utilization rate for equipment that costs more than $1 million.The utilization rate of diagnostic imaging is a critical component of Medicare’s calculation for reimbursements. Increasing the utilization rate above the actual use rates results in cuts imaging reimbursements, which significantly reduce access to diagnostic imaging to patients in rural regions of the country.For more information: www.rbma.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Cynthia McCollough discusses bridging diversity gaps in medical physicsPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 6:05Loaded: 2.67%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -6:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

On the ground in Syrias bloody civil war

first_img Top Stories The U.N. agency is planning a new international appeal to help the refugees on the borders, as well as those still inside the country, including winterizing tents and distributing blankets and warm clothing.“Already … the displaced are suffering from cold in the evening _ this is a real concern,” Wilkes said. She said the number of registered refugees has far exceeded earlier estimates, growing more than 12-fold from about 20,000 in June to 250,000 today.Another 1.5 million Syrians are displaced inside the country, while an additional 1 million are in urgent need of assistance because they have run out of money for food and other essentials, according to U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliassan. A $180 million emergency response plan is only half-funded, he added.Temperatures during the winter months can drop below freezing in northern Syria, and it often rains heavily. Most houses are designed to deal with the scorching summers, but are not well insulated against the cold.Neighboring Turkey has already taken in 80,000 refugees in overflowing camps and for weeks had to temporarily close its borders to new refugees.At the Bab al-Salameh border crossing, more than 5,000 Syrians are camped out in hangars once used by customs officials to inspect trucks _ structures without walls, running water or electricity. A French physician with Doctors Without Borders working near the front lines in Aleppo said in an interview last week that based on style of dress and what their companions said, half of the rebels he treated were jihadis, both foreign and Syrian.In the end, the 12 bearded men who threatened the car full of journalists may have backed down because of wanting to maintain a good relationship with the civilians from the nearby village.The more a rebel group is entrenched in the population, the more self-discipline it will exercise and the less likely it will engage in atrocities, Harling said. The problem with the jihadis and foreign fighters is that they often have few links with civilians.“There is no jihadi precedent in the Islamic world that hasn’t ended in one way or another in total failure, which makes it difficult to understand how it carries so much appeal,” he said._______09/11/2012Wounded flood hospitals in Syria’s largest cityALEPPO, Syria (AP) _ It had been a calm day in Aleppo’s Shifa Hospital, said Dr. Osman al-Haj Osman, his face etched with exhaustion from just three hours of sleep. Then, a man burst in bearing the shrieking bundle of a 6-year-old girl who’d had a machine-gun bullet rip through both her knees. Yet many people used up their savings to make it through the last winter. Some of those who’ve flocked to the refugee camps in Turkey did so not just out of fear of the fighting, but because they’ve run out of money.With more than 80,000 crossing the border to the refugee camps, there are fewer mouths to feed in the villages.“So many people have fled to Turkey, so there is enough, though sometimes we have some shortages,” said Zahra, who isn’t looking forward to the colder weather. “This winter will be so difficult. There will be problems with the heating and the cooking because we have no fuel.”It is with an eye to the future that France announced Sept. 5 that it had started giving direct aid to five unidentified towns in the northern provinces of Idlib, Aleppo and Deir al-Zour that all have large areas outside the regime’s control.The aid is largely practical, including rebuilding bakeries, water systems and developing health care facilities. Foreign Ministry spokesman Philippe Lalliot said it would prepare the ground for a future without the regime.“The humanitarian dimension also has a political goal. It is clearly in our minds to prepare for after Bashar al-Assad, what we call, `the day after,’” he told reporters Friday. “When winter comes, how will I keep them warm?” asked Fatima Abdallah, gesturing worriedly at her tiny newborn twins as she sat on the concrete floor. Turkey has started admitting a few hundred Syrians at a time, but it’s unclear if everyone will be housed in the camps by the time the cold weather sets in.While food supplies seem to be holding steady, the biggest challenge will be staying warm and preparing food. The parts of the country outside government control have to rely on smuggled supplies of gasoline and heating oil, which have already tripled in price.Smugglers drive to government-controlled areas, usually to the east, load up their cars with butane tanks and jerry cans of gasoline and drive them back to the rebel-controlled areas.“There are already shortages of kerosene used to heat homes and there is also a shortage of fuel and cooking gas. And when winter hits, the prices will go up for everything,” said Marixie Mercado of UNICEF, noting that the displaced tend to live in public buildings like schools or stadiums that cannot easily be heated.Many also have taken refuge in construction sites or half-built houses without windows, which will offer little protection against the country’s wet winters. Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project On Tuesday, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported shelling in several areas across Aleppo that killed more than a dozen and collapsed a three- story building in the nearby neighborhood of Haideriya.Forces loyal to President Bashar Assad have been increasingly relying on the government’s artillery and air power to fight the tenacious rebels who so far refuse to be dislodged from Aleppo.The city is Syria’s commercial hub, and its middle and upper classes were bastions of support for Assad. If the rebels took such a key city, it would give them a quasi-capital to complement the large swaths of territory they control in the north, up to the Turkish border.Osman said the rebels he treats mostly have gunshot wounds from the ubiquitous snipers scattered over the many front lines.The hospital itself has been hit directly twice by shells, demolishing two of the upper floors. Bombs fell nearby several times, spraying the entrance with shrapnel and debris.The hospital has a staff of only five doctors and no surgeons, so difficult cases are often farmed out to other facilities, including a hospital in the town of al-Bab, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) to the northeast. Rebels often wear the beards associated with religious Muslims and pepper their conversations with references to their faith, but that does not necessarily mean they subscribe to ultraconservative views.“Having a beard is not a symbol of extremists. It just means we’re religious, like a woman wearing a headscarf or a Christian wearing a cross,” said Abdel Malik Atassi, a young rebel in the town of Marea, as he gestured to his bearded comrades.Atassi also noted that the fighters tend to be more religious.“As a fighter, I am constantly close to death, so yes, I am more religious and I want to follow the prophet’s traditions more closely in case I die,” he added.Rebel leaders like Abdel Aziz Salameh, one of the top commanders in the countryside, said that while he hopes for a future government system based on Islamic law, it will ultimately be the people’s choice.“We don’t let the foreign fighters spread their way of thinking in our home,” he told AP. “We don’t need foreign fighters. We have 100,000 men who want to fight, but we don’t have weapons for them.”While Salameh and other rebel commanders have pledged to respect Syria’s pluralistic society, which includes many ethnic and religious minorities, the jihadis are increasingly framing this war as part of a regional struggle between the Sunni and Shiite sects of Islam. While this is a small amount compared with the thousands of rebels estimated to be battling the regime, Peter Harling of the International Crisis Group warns that the religious extremists will have an influence on the rebellion.“I think numbers are irrelevant,” he said, adding that the extremists are a “very important phenomenon in many ways. Their presence is very divisive, whether there are many or not.”“They are certainly visible, and this increasingly shapes the complexion of the opposition in ways that are not negligible,” Harling said.Reflecting their extreme sensitivity to the topic, the media center on the Syrian-Turkish border investigated and questioned any journalists they discovered who had written about foreign fighters in Syria.“My brother died in this revolution. This revolution means everything to me, and if the world thinks that al-Qaida is involved, it is finished,” said Nader, a young rebel with the media center who declined to give his last name.The media center investigated and questioned any journalists they discovered who had written about foreign fighters being involved in the rebellion.Most of the rebels fighting in the north come from the countryside and have always been more traditional and religious than the more cosmopolitan urbanites of Aleppo. The next day, Monday, the injured went to the balcony to wave to their comrades prepared to head back to Aleppo.Some rebels used the last moments before the journey to pray. Others loaded bullets into their magazines and checked the straps on their battle fatigues.“We will make our stand to the last drop of blood,” said Abu Yaari, a 39-year-old rebel, who like many fighters gave only a nickname for fear of retribution. “All the fighters you see are living martyrs.”With cries of “God is great,” they then all piled into a pickup truck and a battered SUV and roared off in a cloud of dust.The rebels in Aleppo province, most of whom say they are under the umbrella of the Tawhid or Unification Division that launched the assault on Aleppo in July, also are involved in governing these small towns that could well become the kernel of a new Syria outside of Assad’s control.“The rebels control the area and help the civilians govern it, and then there are our military duties,” said Abdel Malik Atassi, a 27-year-old rebel from a battalion based in the town of Marea. “We protect the bakeries and resolve local problems.”The rebels have even set up a court system here. Acting as a judge is Ibrahim al-Najjar, a lawyer who fled from Aleppo after he woke up one morning to find government tanks ringing his apartment building. Support from rebel-controlled towns and villages dotting the rich farmland of this northwestern pocket near the Turkish border is likely one reason that rebel forces have been able to keep going in a now 2-month-old battle for control of Syria’s largest city, Aleppo. The region is the rebels’ strategic depth. Towns provide fighters. Residents help funnel food, supplies and ammunition to the front lines. And rebels engaged in the fight can find a safe refuge to rest and recuperate.Rebels in July launched an audacious assault on Aleppo, Syria’s commercial hub that until then had been untouched by the fighting. Eight weeks on, the rebels have held large chunks of the city and show no signs of being driven out as they were in a failed assault on the capital of Damascus over the summer. According to the rebels, the vast majority of those fighting in Aleppo come from the towns and the villages to the north, many of which have been free from government control since May.The rebels are proving the wisdom of Che Guevara, who preached the importance of establishing safe havens and local support in the countryside. “The guerrilla fighter needs full help from the people of the area. This is an indispensable condition,” he wrote in the introduction to his 1960 manual “Guerrilla Warfare.” Sponsored Stories New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like Qassem said they had been driving through a neighborhood when their car was raked by machine-gun fire from government troops.In the operating room, Fatima’s crying grew muffled as an anesthetic was administered and her mouth went slack. Osman cleaned the blood away from the wound and tried to find a way to repair the damage.Just a few feet away from the commotion, on the next bed, a nurse calmly bandaged the hand of a stone-faced rebel who was oblivious to the stricken child nearby.A tiny boy walked in and stared with curiosity at the blood and ruin of Fatima’s legs before a nurse suddenly saw him and ushered him out. It was Osman’s 4-year-old son, Omar.When Osman started pulling all-day and all-night shifts during Syria’s civil war, his wife and two children moved into the hospital so that he would actually get to see them.“He plays between the wounded. It’s a great upbringing,” Osman joked in the few calm moments before another patient was carried in. He spoke in English _ a language he said he learned from watching the Fox Movie Channel on satellite TV. Perhaps another joke.The 30-year-old doctor estimated that 80 percent of the patients are civilians, wounded by falling buildings and exploding shells from the constant bombardment that government forces mete out to the parts of the city outside their control. ___Associated Press writer Nebi Qena contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

In many cases, families are forced to flee to refugee camps on the border not only for fear of fighting but because they have run out of money for food.The length of the conflict is also wearing people down, leaving them even more vulnerable, said Sybella Wilkes of the U.N. Refugee Agency.“The more people are displaced, the longer they are living in difficult situations of hardship, the more stretched their coping skills are,” she said. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement “We know all American journalists are spies. Now tell us what you are doing here and who you are spying for,” he said in English before going on to accuse the U.S. of the destruction of Iraq and Afghanistan.“I really want to cut your head off right now,” he added, telling his men, many of whom appeared to have North African accents, that this American kills Muslims.With the intervention of nearby villagers, the confrontation eventually was defused. But it underscored the unpredictable element that foreign fighters bring to the Syrian conflict.Most of those fighting the regime of President Bashar Assad are ordinary Syrians and soldiers who have defected, having become fed up with the authoritarian government, analysts say. But increasingly, foreign fighters and those adhering to an extremist Islamist ideology are turning up on the front lines. The rebels are trying to play down their influence for fear of alienating Western support, but as the 18-month-old fight grinds on, the influence of these extremists is set to grow.On Monday, a U.N. panel reported a rise in the number of foreign fighters in the conflict and warned that it could radicalize the rebellion.center_img While there are enough drugs in the hospital so far to deal with the daily violence _ which on Monday killed 25 and wounded dozens in shelling believed to be in retaliation for the rebel capture of an army barracks _ the staff is overstretched.“What day is it? I don’t know. What time is it? I don’t know,” Osman said, adding that he goes to sleep at 4 a.m. and wakes up at 8 a.m. _ unless he’s roused earlier for an emergency.“My life is just the wounded and the dead,” he said.Outside the hospital, in the surprisingly bustling neighborhood of Tareeq al-Bab, there is the sound of gunfire. A helicopter gunship is lazily circling the neighborhood and rebels on the roofs of the apartment buildings are futilely emptying the clips of their inadequate Kalashnikovs into the sky.Abu Hassan, who was once a carpenter, sells vegetables on the street facing the hospital because there is no other work. He navigates the tortuous jigsaw of rebel- and government-controlled neighborhoods every day.“When we are under bombardment, the water and electricity can be cut for days,” he said, explaining that if he had the money, he would try to follow the hundreds of thousands of other Syrians who have fled for the border. Since the uprising against Assad began 18 months ago, activists estimate that at least 23,000 people have been killed. UNICEF is stockpiling supplies, including baby blankets and thermal underwear for children, as well as stoves to heat schools _ assuming the fuel is available.“People are cutting down trees to get wood,” said Abu Mustafa, relying on wood-burning stoves to cook as gas supplies have run out. “We cut off a bunch of dead branches in our orchards and collected them, but the next time we went to our fields to pick them up, someone had stolen them. People are getting desperate.”International agencies are working with local partners, particularly the Syrian Red Crescent to distribute food and supplies around the country, said Ben Parker of the U.N.’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.The Red Crescent can cross the lines of the conflict, but even then, their efforts have been stymied by the proliferating checkpoints and rising violence.“It will be a bitter winter,” Parker warned.___09/19/2012Extremists showing up on front lines in SyriaTEL RIFAAT, Syria (AP) _ The bearded gunmen who surrounded the car full of foreign journalists in a northern Syrian village were clearly not Syrians. A heavyset man in a brown gown stepped forward, announced he was Iraqi and fingered through the American passport he had confiscated. The sound of the jet suddenly builds to a crescendo and there is a muffled crump, mercifully in the distance. Another airstrike. The men gesture in the direction of the explosion and say that just this morning, a bomb fell a block away, killing a woman.“We can’t sleep here during the night or day,” said Abu Abed, who looks much older than his 40 years. “In the morning, it’s the jets. In the afternoon, it’s the helicopters. And at night, it’s the shelling.”___09/10/2012Syrian countryside gives vital support to rebelsSURAN, Syria (AP) _ When the uprising against President Bashar Assad started, Fatima Zahra gave up her life as a dressmaker in a small town in northern Syria and began cooking and delivering meals for the rebels.Bucking tradition in conservative rural Aleppo province, the stern, blue-eyed matron has also opened her and her husband’s home to soldiers defecting from the army, providing them with sanctuary before they either join the rebels or head back to their villages.“There are two or three other families in the village doing this kind of work but they are afraid to be known,” she said. “I am not afraid of what I am doing because I believe the revolution will be successful.” Two months into the battle for Syria’s largest city, civilians are still bearing the brunt of the daily assaults of helicopter gunships, roaring jets and troops fighting in the streets.Shoving aside the orderlies and armed rebels milling around the cramped lobby Tuesday afternoon, the man deposited Fatima Qassem onto a gurney as a nurse swooped in and began cutting away the blood-soaked bandages on her knees.A doctor reached in and pulled out an inch-long fragment of metal. There was a gush of blood. Large sections of bone and muscle were missing from the back of her knee.She cried out plaintively for “Baba,” because the man who brought her was not her father _ just someone who had rushed her across town to the hospital. The family was hopefully on its way.There was a piercing scream as the nurse picked her up again, jostling her awkwardly dangling legs and carrying her around a narrow corner into a small operating theater. Her cries subsided into a steady moan.Her father, Abdu Qassem, came in 15 minutes later, his shirt covered with blood, probably from carrying his daughter out of the car, and frantically asked the orderly behind the desk how she was doing. 0 Comments   Share   Check your body, save your life Assad and many of the top people in the regime belong to the Alawite minority, an offshoot of Shiite Islam, and the jihadis are framing the struggle in Syria as another front in the battle against what they perceive as heretical Shiites.In the numerous online statements celebrating their nearly daily operations in Syria, Jebhat al-Nusra, or Victory Front, the largest jihadist group, often states that the attacks are to “avenge the Sunnis killed by the apostate regime.”Despite their smaller numbers, the jihadis bring experience in fighting guerrilla wars as well as their own supply lines for much needed weapons and ammunition, making them attractive to local Syrians to join.“The infiltration of weapons and funding to these groups, as well as the ethno-religious component of the Syrian uprising, is likely to continue to serve as a source of attraction for many fighters, some of whom are ex-Free Syrian Army soldiers and many of whom are from foreign countries,” noted the September report by the Quilliam Foundation about the role of jihadis in the rebellion.The jihadis also have a reputation for heading straight to the front lines. Few were in evidence in the countryside, where many rebel units are involved in managing the civilian areas. 5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center Every village has a base for the local battalion, where some rebels stay to patrol the countryside and those fighting in Aleppo can come back for a much-needed break before returning to the fray. Government forces, meanwhile, have to conserve manpower for fear of overstraining the elite units that are the only ones trusted to not defect in battle.In the village of Suran on the outskirts of Aleppo, several young men fresh from the Aleppo fighting sprawl on thin mattresses and share a nargileh, puffing out aromatic clouds of apple-scented tobacco. For now, their uniforms are off and Kalashnikovs are stacked in the closet, but in days they will be back in Aleppo.Abu Leith may have to wait a little longer than his comrades. In his wallet he carries the fragment of the sniper bullet that ricocheted off a wall and slammed into his shoulder the day before in a successful assault on a government barracks in the northeastern Aleppo neighborhood of Hananu.“The fight is going well,” he said, echoing the inexplicably high morale of his fellow rebels in the face of an enemy possessing a modern air force and mechanized brigades. “We believe in what we are doing, and they don’t.” Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix The streets between the shattered apartment buildings are choked with garbage that can no longer be collected.Although meat is scarce, residents of Aleppo are eating adequately, said Alaa Mursi, gesturing at the eggs, chickpeas, tomatoes and other produce being sold. Many, however, are surviving on handouts.“People give us food to eat,” he said. “There are rich people who distribute food for us.”Just a few blocks away is the neighborhood of Hanano, on the city’s edge, where the rebels began their assault two months ago. The streets are largely deserted because most residents were recent immigrants who could flee to relatives in the comparative safety of the countryside.A few men lounge in the shade of a scraggly tree in the otherwise grim vista of cheaply built concrete five-story buildings.Overhead is the whirring noise of a jet’s engines _ a mundane sound in the West that can mean sudden, inexplicable and random death in Aleppo.“We are afraid to stay in the houses, so we hang out on the street,” said Abu Alaa, a jovial 30-year-old who hasn’t worked in months. “We sent our families to the countryside and we stay here to look after the place, in case of thieves.” TEL RIFAAT, Syria (AP) _ The days are still warm across the fertile plains of northern Syria around Aleppo, but night brings a chill _ an ominous harbinger of winter’s approach and the deepening of the already severe humanitarian crisis gripping a country wracked by civil war.Warm temperatures and plentiful food have cushioned the blow somewhat for hundreds of thousands of Syrians displaced from their homes or living in refugee camps across the border. But the arrival of near-freezing temperatures could mean greater suffering and even deaths from exposure, as international aid agencies scramble to cope.Among the first things to go will be the practice of sleeping outside to avoid the artillery and airstrikes that rain down late night death on homes.“Most people sleep in the fields at night, out of fear of the bombardments of the towns,” said Abu Mohammed, who has taken to sleeping in the olive orchards outside Tel Rifaat, a rebel-controlled town north of Aleppo. “In the winter the suffering will only increase.”Like many people in Syria, he asked that his real name not be used for fear of retribution should the government retake his town.At a news conference earlier this month, actress Angelina Jolie, a special envoy for the U.N. Refugee Agency, reported that many of the refugees living in camps along the Turkish border were worried about the approach of cold weather. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day “We have a mixture of civil and Islamic law,” he explained, leaning on his motorcycle outside a home that been demolished by a regime jet the week before. “Marriages, for instance, are under Islamic law, but money and commercial matters are under civil law. … With the new system, there is more justice and it is swifter.”Flush with food from a good harvest, the villages have enough to feed themselves as well as the rebels in their midst, many of whom receive home-cooked meals from residents such as Zahra every day.Zahra, who wears a traditional headscarf common in the rural areas, used to travel to Aleppo buy fabric for her dresses but then began ferrying food to the fighters in the city until the road became too dangerous.Now, she cooks up lunches of meat and vegetables, often with supplies donated by other villagers, for a band of several dozen rebels.“They know I’m a strong woman, so they never say anything to my face,” she said about some of the local women who disapproved of her mixing with so many men in a conservative society. “But I can tell the way some look at me that they had something on their minds.”Marketplaces in these towns are bursting with bright red peppers, purple eggplant and golden bushels of corn, while herds of sheep roam the countryside. The Syrian government has always blamed the uprising on foreign terrorists, despite months of peaceful protests by ordinary citizens that only turned violent after repeated attacks by security forces. The transformation of the conflict into an open war has given an opening to the foreign fighters and extremists.Talk about the role of foreign jihadists in the Syrian civil war began in earnest, however, with the rise in suicide bombings. U.S. National Director of Intelligence James Clapper said in February that those attacks “bore the earmarks” of the jihadists in neighboring Iraq.Rebel commanders are quick to dismiss the role of the foreign fighters and religious extremists, describing their numbers as few and their contribution as paltry.Col. Abdel-Jabbar Aqidi, a top rebel commander for the Aleppo area, told The Associated Press there were maybe 500 jihadis involved in the battle for Aleppo, while a report from the Quilliam Foundation, a London-based think tank studying extremism, estimated a total of 1,200-1,500 foreign fighters in all of Syria.Other commanders estimated that at most, jihadis, whether local or foreign, made up no more than 10 percent of the fighters. Associated Press (AP) – Journalist Paul Schemm was part of a four-member Associated Press team that spent two and a half weeks traveling around Aleppo province in northern Syria, gathering firsthand information on the increasingly bloody rebellion against President Bashar Assad _ the longest and deadliest uprising of the Arab Spring.___9/24/2012Syria’s humanitarian crisis set to deepen with onset of cold weatherlast_img

Political Discussions Around Homeownership Heat Up

first_img“The way into the middle class for many people, including me, is home ownership” @RepMikeCapuano #UnderConstruction https://t.co/2UrmGMydT9— POLITICO Events (@POLITICOEvents) July 26, 2016 While the two major party presidential candidates have not said much about housing policy in the months leading up to their parties’ respective national conventions, housing is suddenly moving up on the priority list of lawmakers and industry stakeholders.A group of lawmakers, policymakers, and thought leaders gathered in Philadelphia at the Democratic National Convention to discuss housing policy choices facing the next Congress and administration in an event titled “Under Construction: How Will the Next President Remodel Home Lending?” The group included two U.S. Congressmen, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-California) and Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Massachusetts); Anne Fadullon, Director of Planning & Development, City of Philadelphia; and Susan Wachter, Albert Sussman Professor of Real Estate, Professor of Finance, The Wharton School; Co-Director, Penn Institute for Urban Research, University of Pennsylvania.Increasing the U.S. homeownership rate, which is near a five-decade low, was a focal point of the discussion. Wachter tweeted, “24% of 18-24 yr olds are owners & an almost equal % are living at home w their parents..an historic high” and “We don’t have the option of doing nothing. . . Fannie and Freddie are on a timeline to closing.” The capital buffer for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is required to be reduced to zero by January 1, 2018, at which point taxpayers will be on the hook for any losses they may incur if they are still under conservatorship of FHFA.

Sherman tweeted about Wyden’s proposal, “To GOP ‘Tax credit to accomplish the same goal is a smaller sin’ than ‘spending money to help people.’” Nevertheless, he said, increasing the homeownership rate is critical, because “The way into the middle class for many people, including me, is homeownership.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News “24% of 18-24 yr olds are owners & an almost equal % are living at home w their parents..an historic high” @Susan_Wachter #UnderConstruction— POLITICO Events (@POLITICOEvents) July 26, 2016Mortgage rates hovering above record low levels are helping the homeownership rate somewhat, but housing has been constrained by consistently low inventory. Not only that, the low rates are encouraging many who are already homeowners to refinance rather than move and buy another house. Still, “Anything that keeps interest rates on mortgages lower…that’s a salient political issue for homeowners,” Capuano tweeted.Homeownership remains an impossibility for some families for a variety of reasons, chief among them inability to save for a downpayment or bad credit (or no credit). Fadullon tweeted, “Huge % of our pop. for which homeownership is completely out of reach & they just want a place to call home” and “We have…an affordability issue combined w a poverty/income issue in Philly.”last_img read more
