Dissecting Honeycomb Part 2 A deep look at Android 30 for developers

first_imgBy now, you have probably heard that Android 3.0 is on the way. The Software Development Kit (SDK) has given us some insight into the features and benefits to the upcoming upgrade to the Android OS, and its support for many different types of Android devices. Android tablets and phones will soon be either arriving with 3.0 or getting an update with these enhancements. So, aside from all the new stuff we covered in our look at Honeycomb for Users, what benefits are there for developers?User InterfaceIt’s the lonely life of a developer to plug away on the functional goodies in the background, when all the users care about are the pretty colors and soft corners of their screens. Fortunately, the latest tools in the Android SDK have taken steps to make it easier for developers to quickly change elements of an app or widget. Since there’s a lot of different screens out there, Google needed to implement a way to quickly test new ideas that might look or work better for the user. This was accomplished with a revamped UI builder that includes things like In-Editor previews, Drag and Drop improvements, and a UI visualizers that are independent of the piece you are working on.These changes will make it easy for developers to update their apps to this next version, and allow for the changes to be more meaningful than just a version update.Planning for Multiple ProcessorsDual core processing for mobile devices is finally here, and it’s vital that not only the operating system, but the apps within it are optimized to take advantage of that. That noted, it’s not a requirement for an app developer to do anything to benefit from multiple processors.Natively, Android will run the garbage collector on one core and an app on another. However, the tools are there to utilize both cores for your app, and to benefit from the performance gains that will occur. This will allow for app developers of every skill level to take advantage of the new hardware and also ensures that there won’t be any issues that remind us of when 64-bit Windows first came out.Games!I think it’s unreasonable to look at any of the current mobile operating systems as gaming consoles, but that does not mean that they are not heading in that direction. More and more we are seeing huge sales and top apps coming from game developers on mobile platforms. It’s only logical that the mobile platforms would step up and make it easier for new exciting features and better looking games to come to their house to play.The Honeycomb SDK includes new 2D and 3D rendering systems across either the entire app or specific places within. That’s great, in my opinion, but not a good as hardware acceleration. Combined with what has already been seen with the symmetric multiprocessing kernel alongside, we can expect some great battery performance from new devices.MultimediaGames aren’t the only thing we care about. Music, movies, and images are important as well. And not just on the device or network, but everywhere we go. We know Google is a big fan of the “cloud” and they have delivered with support for several types of web streaming technologies. From HTML streaming to media file transfer, and “pluggable DRM frameworks” to help keep content safe (Are you reading this, Netflix? Hulu? Step up, guys!), the tools are there to make sure any media provider will be completely comfortable delivering their content to the Androidy masses.Business SolutionsIn the last version release, we saw Google make huge strides to ensure Android was ready for the business world. Creating administrator controls was a great first step, but they aren’t done. Password expiration and encrypted storage tools will allow any organization to give Android devices to their employees and ensure the devices will be both safe to store critical information on and secure in that in case the employee is “no longer with the company” they aren’t giving that user a free ride.External Device SupportNot every mobile accessory was built with smartphones in mind. For example that Bluetooth headset that fits your ear just right might not have all the same bells and whistles as the latest BlueAnt headset, so you may be missing a few things you really like to do, like initiating a call or controlling the volume. Honeycomb adds support for legacy BT devices. Many feature phones have unsecure bluetooth connections for “dumb” bluetooth devices (speakers for example) and smartphones as a rule do not support them (unsecured connections being, by nature, unsafe) but Honeycomb adds support for those devices.The tools are all available in the Android SDK for you to download and explore for free. Additionally, keep an eye on the Android Developers Blog for everything from tips and tricks in the SDK to functionality warnings and suggestions from members of the Android Development team.last_img read more

A symbol of peace formed by refugee lifejackets

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greenpeace and Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières – MSF) volunteers teamed up in Lesvos on New Year’s Day, sending a message of peace to the world. Using a pile of life jackets discarded by refugees arriving on the island, the group created a massive bright orange peace sign on a hillside on the Greek island, overlooking the small strait between Greece and Turkey that has become a main passageway for those fleeing to Europe. The transformation of the pile of life jackets into the universal sign, took the joined effort of dozens of Greenpeace and MSF volunteers. Made up of more than 3,000 life jackets, the sign is a way to honour those who have made the journey and to urge peace in the new year, according to Greenpeace. Those involved in the project are calling for safe passage to those fleeing war, poverty and oppression.last_img read more

Star Wars Rebels enters season three as essential viewing

first_imgThis weekend, the third season of Star Wars: Rebels premieres on Disney XD and in this year of our Sith Lords 2016, the Star Wars franchise is taking a break from Rey, Snoke, and BB-8 and spending time in the “classic” timeframe of the series.Many of the people behind Star Wars: Rebels, not limited to executive producer Dave Filoni, also worked on the previous animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but that was set in the prequel era, not a time period where Lando, Princess Leia, and Darth Vader were running around. That’s what makes Star Wars: Rebels so exciting and keeps it feeling essential to the Star Wars canon: It’s the stuff we love with the characters we love in a world we recognize.In other ways, Star Wars Rebels has forwarded the canon of the Star Wars Universe, especially after Lucasfilm re-set the Star Wars Expanded Universe (relegating old works to “Legends” status). Last season didn’t just follow the titular group of Rebels – budding Force user Ezra, last Padawan Kanan, Hera the pilot, Zeb the muscle, and Sabine the Mandalorian graffiti artist – but also tracked the slow building tension as Anakin Skywalker’s former Padawan Ahsoka came to realize that her former master had become Darth Vader.When season two ended, the greater Rebellion wasn’t doing so bad, but our core heroes were a bit worse for wear. Ezra, Kanan, and Ahsoka traveled to an ancient Sith temple where they found Darth Maul and several Inquisitors waiting for them. As Ezra moved closer and closer to the top of the temple, things became more perilous. Kanan was blinded, Ezra was tempted by Maul to turn to the Dark Side and Ahsoka had to face her old master while the others escaped.Ezra and Kanan did manage to collect the Sith Holocron that was hidden in the temple (Holocrons contain knowledge that can only be unlocked by using the Force) but otherwise, they barely survived their encounter with Vader. What could season three possibly do to top that? Besides building off the temptation of Ezra as he grows in power, the big news from season three is, of course, Grand Admiral Thrawn.Originally created by author Timothy Zahn for his novel Heir to the Empire, the first in the “Thrawn trilogy” where the blue colored Imperial marshaled what was left of the Empire’s forces after the second Death Star blew up over Endor. In that time an incarnation, Thrawn had special alien pets called ysalamir he would wear on his shoulders.The ysalamir sucked the power out of the Force (somehow) meaning Force users wouldn’t be able to use their powers on or around him. The good news is that those crazy Force-neutralizing aliens will not be re-entering canon while the cooler parts of Grand Admiral Thrawn are being moved to the Rebels time period.What are those cool things? For one, Thrawn is a Chiss – a blue humanoid species – and an Imperial officer and if you hadn’t noticed, the Empire is very racist. It’s cool to see a non-human officer and the fact that he’s one of the most revered officers in the Imperial Fleet makes it even better. Two, Thrawn will still insist that the best way to learn your enemy’s war tactics is by studying their art and culture.When Thrawn first appeared in the Star Wars books, he was the first example of a smart Imperial Officer villain (the closest we had been before was Grand Moff Tarkin, who didn’t think a single fighter was a threat to his Death Star), and his method of going about it was so completely sideways from the totalitarianism of the Empire and the religious knights of the Sith and Jedi.Season three wastes no time introducing us to why Thrawn is a threat, specifically this version of Thrawn who is at the height of his power between the establishment of the Empire (the end of Revenge of the Sith) and the battle of Yavin (the end of A New Hope). Although there were enough Legends stories to fill in this period in the officer’s life, the new iteration has Thrawn placed exactly opposite Hera. In some interesting character ways, this manages to make Thrawn feel at home in the Rebels universe.via disneyxd.disney.comThis season has more surprises up its sleeve than just re-introducing a character from a once discarded canon. Later on in the season, we’ll be introduced to a young Wedge Antilles, future Rogue Squadron Leader, who will be a defecting Imperial Pilot (!!!) and there are sure to be more surprises as Ezra and Kanan puzzle over the proper use of the Sith Holocron they have in their possession. In tomorrow’s premiere, fans with good voice-recognition might notice that the ghostly voice instructing Ezra from the Holocron (called “Presence”) is Nika Futterman the same actress who played fallen Sith Asajj Ventress in The Clone Wars.Darth Maul is still kicking around too, and might make a play for Ezra as an apprentice once again. Not to mention that the time period is right and the characters are in place for an Obi-Wan Kenobi versus Darth Maul rematch (not that there’s any confirmation of that happening beyond some fan-inspired speculation).Perhaps the coolest addition to the Star Wars canon to come from the early episodes of Rebels season three is the Bendu, who will be voiced by former Doctor Who Tom Baker. The Bendu is awoken by the Sith Holocron’s presence and helps Kanan “see” now that his eyes have been permanently damaged (hint: he can use The Force).via disneyxd.disney.comUnlike the usual divide that has existed in the Star Wars Universe, the Bendu is a Force user, but follows neither the path of the Jedi or the Sith, making it a new oddity in the Star Wars Universe: a neutral Force path.In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Anakin, and Obi-Wan ventured far out into space where they found the Brother and the Sister, two physical embodiments of the light and dark sides of the Force. Up until now, Star Wars has made their religious monks choose a side and a bevy of laser sword colors so they could access different “light” or “dark” Force powers.Hell, there’s whole video games about how there are only two choices for any Force character. What the Bendu supposes simply by existing is that there’s a balanced version of a religious power that craves balance. Seems like it could be really powerful!via disneyxd.disney.comThe name and concept are also a cool easter egg for old-school Star Wars nerds. Before George Lucas wrote the script that would become Star Wars, he wrote a treatment based on a plot description of The Hidden Fortress, before that treatment there was an earlier draft of the story (technically the first story document for the Star Wars Universe) called Journal of the Whills, Part I which followed a Padawan as he trained under “Mace Windy” who is a “Jedi-Bendu.”Yeah, that means Bendu is tied for Mace Windu and Padawan for oldest Star Wars reference to make it through the production process. As you might be able to tell, Lucas made sure to re-read his original Journal of the Whills treatment before he began writing the prequel trilogy.Overall, Rebels season three is moving beyond the fun times with Star Wars of the first two seasons and has completed its transformation into a show that is absolutely essential viewing for any serious Star Wars fan. Not only does it bring a weekly dose of fun Star Wars adventures with a group of characters we like (except for me, I still hate Chopper), but it is introducing new concepts into the Star Wars Universe that will end up being important later (you think Snoke’s never heard the voice of “the Presence?” Please.)The new season starts September 24th at 8:30PM on Disney XD.last_img read more

Katmai National Park unveils new permanent Brooks River Bridge

first_img“Visitation is growing,” Sturm commented. “People know about this place and they want to see it. We need to be careful when we think about the future of how we manage this place and understand that we need to not impact the community or the abundance of life that people enjoy here.”  Every year, thousands of visitors travel to Katmai, only to have their excursions in the park halted for hours at a time by “bear jams” – when bears came near the seasonal, floating bridge that crossed Brooks River. And indeed, despite the opening of the new bridge and the positive changes that it brings, Katmai National Park and Preserve still struggles with capacity issues.  Ribbon cutting at the new Brooks River Bridge in Katmai National Park and Preserve. From left to right: Mark Sturm, Sheila Ring, Lucy Murfitt, Annie Hoefler, and Bert Frost. (Photo by Sage Smiley / KDLG) All this to say, the new Brooks River Bridge is a huge boon for the park, but isn’t the end of the road for development and preservation. In fact, this is just the first phase of a planned bridge system that will further lessen the human footprint on the park, and keep fulfilling that original National Park Service mission: Protect the resources while letting people revel in its beauty. Kristen Ulery, Katmai’s lead interpretive ranger, said the original idea behind the bridge was that just one ranger would manage it, freeing up another ranger to help with crowd management at the park. But with more people visiting Katmai every year, it’s becoming clear that that plan isn’t feasible. During the peak season of July, visitors at Katmai can wait for over two hours to see main attraction sites like Brooks Falls. Other speakers included Jason Whiting, representing Katmailand; Sheila Ring, from the Katmai Conservancy; and Lucy Murfitt, Deputy Chief Counsel on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources committee. “Who [else] can have a ribbon cutting ceremony with grizzlies within feet of the audience,” marveled Bert Frost, Alaska’s National Park Service director, during his remarks at the ceremony.  On June 30, Katmai held an opening ceremony for a new, permanent, elevated bridge aimed at fixing the bear jam problem for good.  The new bridge was more than a decade in the planning and cost $6 million dollars. After over 7 months of construction, it was completed in May of 2019.  However, the new bridge and platforms are not a silver bullet.  Many of the speakers at the ceremony commented on the feat of cooperation and persistence that led to the completion of the bridge project.  Bear 132 and her yearling cub ambled below one of the brand new platforms where the crowd was gathered, mother and cub making their way to the edge of the river, then back again.  The original guest list for the ceremony, which was set to take place the day before, included Alaska Senators Dan Sullivan and Lisa Murkowski, Congressman Don Young, and West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, among others. Heavy fog in King Salmon meant their planes couldn’t land and pushed back the ceremony until Sunday morning.  The grey and brown crossing stretches 1,200 feet over the Brooks River, strikingly angular against the muted greens and grays of the surrounding landscape. It features platforms where visitors can stop and watch bears, as well as 4 new permanent bear cams.  “Even the bears are here to hear what’s going on,” laughed Alaska Parks Superintendent Mark Sturm at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Brooks River bridge in Katmai National Park and Preserve.  “From the beginning, the National Park Service had two missions,” Frost said. “The first was to protect the resources, and the second is to ensure for visitor enjoyment. Coming here and seeing how people can move effortlessly above the bears because of the bridge, and see the landscape, engaging in a way you never could before is the essence of what the founders of the National Park Service [envisioned].” last_img read more

Will Samsung Galaxy S IV Debut in 2013 Picture Leaked Online

first_imgSpeculations on Samsung Galaxy S IV has hit new heights as the reports of Samsung confirming the arrival of new flagship handset emerged.The latest reports suggest that the successor of Samsung Galaxy S3 is in the pipeline. Rumours on Galaxy S IV, which have been doing the rounds since last summer, seems to be ringing true after theSamsung Lebanon on Facebook responded to a query saying that “The Galaxy SIV won’t be released before May 2013.” It added later “What we said is only trivial since all Galaxy S series are released between late April and Early May, yet there’s no way for anyone to know the exact release date.”Although this has made it clear that the company will not launch the much-anticipated Galaxy S IV before May, the response had fuelled the speculations that the company has its next flagship phone in the bag. Meanwhile, an image which is said to be Samsung Galaxy S IV has hit the net. The image, which appears more or less similar to its predecessor Galaxy S III, was apparently sent by an insider at Samsung to the technology Blog SamMobile.According to SamMobile, the leaked image of Galaxy S IV revealed that, “The device will use on-screen buttons as there is no home-button present on the device (Finally), the bezel around the device is much thinner and the device features a large display.”The rumours suggest that the device will have 4.99 inch Super AMOLED FULL HD display with 1080p and will be powered by Exynos 5450 Quad-Core CPU clocked at 2.0GHz. It is also said that the device will have unbreakable display. The speculations have been rife that the device will boast of 13 Megapixel Rear Facing Camera and 2 Megapixel Front Facing Camera along with 2GB RAM.”We can’t 100% confirm if this is indeed the Galaxy S IV but the picture he sent us looks really sharp and doesn’t look fake at all. The design of the device looks also very similar to the design of the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Premier, which makes this picture more authentic,” said SamMobile.last_img read more

Budget 2017 Higher likelihood of repo rate cut in February if govt

first_imgIf Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley sticks to the fiscal consolidation path while presenting the Union Budget for FY2018, there is a higher likelihood of a repo rate cut in the Monetary Policy Committee’s February 2017 meeting, Aditi Nayar, a senior economist at ICRA, said in a note released on Monday (January 15). RBI governor Urjit Patel conveys subtle message to Modi Govt before Budget 2017However, Aditi added that the room for incremental rate cuts would be limited to 25 bps over the next six months as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) focuses more on achieving the mid-point of the inflation target range of four per cent. “With concerns regarding the sustainability of the rebound in industrial growth in November 2016 and headline CPI inflation likely to undershoot the RBI’s target for Q4 FY2017, there is a higher likelihood of a repo rate cut in February,” she said.On the inflation front, ICRA expects the CPI inflation to record one more sub-3.5 per cent figure in January 2017, before recording an uptick in February-March 2017 as the favourable base effect wanes. Overall, the rating agency continues to expect CPI inflation to undershoot the RBI’s projection of five per cent for the fourth quarter of FY2017. Going ahead, food items, particularly vegetables, may continue to display a seasonal moderation in January 2017. Moreover, a 13 per cent rise in rabi acreage for pulses has led to a decline in prices in the ongoing month. Overall, rabi sowing is seven per cent higher than year-ago levels, though on a small base. While precipitation has been low in the post-monsoon season, healthy reservoir levels on a seasonally adjusted basis would support the yields, ICRA said.Earlier last week, government data showed that the CPI inflation eased to a 25-month low at 3.4 per cent in December 2016 from 3.6 per cent in November 2016. Food and beverages inflation declined to a 59-month low at two per cent in December 2016 from 2.6 percent in November 2016. The core-CPI inflation (excluding food and beverages and fuel and light) eased marginally to 4.9 per cent in December 2016 from five per cent in November 2016, displaying a limited reaction to changes in supply and demand after the note ban.last_img read more

How a twoweek army crackdown reignited Myanmars Rohingya crisis

first_imgTAKE WHAT YOU CAN: Rohingya children rummaged last October through the ruins of a village market that was set on fire during the army`s `clearance operation` in Rakhine state. Photo: ReutersIn November, Myanmar’s army swept through Rohingya villages in Rakhine state. Hundreds of Rohingya were killed and some 75,000 fled to Bangladesh. The violence has presented Aung San Suu Kyi with a major crisis.When army helicopters fired on Rahim’s village in northwest Myanmar one day last November, the Rohingya schoolteacher told his pregnant wife to take their three young daughters and leave. He stayed behind with his 72-year-old mother.At dawn the next morning soldiers encircled and then entered the village. Rahim and his mother crept into a rice field. Crouching, Rahim said they saw the soldiers set fire to homes and shoot fleeing villagers.“I thought we were going to die that day,” said Rahim, who like many Rohingya identifies by a single name. “We kept hearing gunshots. I saw several people shot dead.”His account, told in a Bangladesh refugee camp where thousands of Rohingya are sheltering, was corroborated by four people from his village.The attack on Rahim’s village, Dar Gyi Zar, on 12-13 November claimed dozens of lives, Rohingya elders said. The killings marked the start of a two-week military onslaught across about 10 Rohingya villages in northwest Rakhine State, a Reuters reconstruction of events has found.Rohingya elders estimate some 600 people were killed. A United Nations report from February said the likely toll was hundreds. At least 1,500 homes were destroyed, Human Rights Watch satellite imagery shows. Countless women were raped, eyewitnesses and aid workers said. Doctors in Bangladesh told Reuters they treated women who had been raped.It was the latest round of ethnic bloodletting in Myanmar, a majority Buddhist country where the roughly one million Muslim Rohingya are marginalised, often living in camps, denied access to healthcare and education and uprooted and killed in pogroms.Myanmar’s march to democracy, beginning in 2011, uncorked long-suppressed ethnic and religious tensions between Rakhine’s Buddhists and the Rohingya. Clashes between the two communities in 2012 killed at least 192 people and displaced 140,000, mostly Rohingya.This latest eruption of violence drove some 75,000 Rohingya across the border into Bangladesh, the United Nations said. Myanmar’s government has conceded some soldiers may have committed crimes but has rejected charges of “ethnic cleansing.” It has promised to prosecute any officers where there is evidence of wrongdoing.The military assault involving a little under 2,000 soldiers has presented Aung San Suu Kyi with the first major crisis since her party won elections in late 2015. Many hoped Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, would bring a new era of tolerance after five decades of military rule. While generals remain in control of a significant part of the government, she now faces accusations of failing to oppose human rights abuses.Suu Kyi’s National Security Adviser Thaung Tun said some individuals may have committed abuses “in the heat of the confrontation.” But he stressed the government did not approve of such conduct. Suu Kyi did not respond to detailed questions from Reuters about events in Rakhine.The army began its “clearance operation” in Rakhine after Rohingya militants attacked border posts there on 9 October. For a month, it tried to pressure villagers to hand over the rebels, without success. That approach changed on 12-13 November in Dar Gyi Zar and the neighbouring village Yae Khat Chaung Gwa Son, marking a sharp escalation of the military operation.This article pieces together how events unfolded, drawing on interviews with Rohingya refugees, diplomats, aid workers and Myanmar government officials. Reuters also gained rare access to Myanmar security officials and spoke with a Rohingya militant leader.The reconstruction of the military operation contains previously unreported details about army negotiations with villagers over the insurgents, a shift in military strategy and the army units involved. Reuters also learned new details about investigations into alleged atrocities that are being conducted by Myanmar’s army and by the home affairs ministry.The violence was brutal. A 16-year-old girl assaulted in the village of Kyar Gaung Taung, said two soldiers raped her. Speaking in a Bangladesh refugee camp, she said she still suffers anxiety and trauma after the attack.“I am angry with myself for being Rohingya,” said the teen, whose name Reuters is withholding. “If I had been Bangladeshi or American, I would never have been raped. But they did it to me because I was born Rohingya.”The army has denied there were widespread abuses and said it was carrying out a legitimate counterinsurgency operation. The army and the ministry of home affairs did not respond to detailed questions from Reuters about events in Rakhine.“It is possible that individual security officers or individual policemen may have reacted in an excessive manner,” Thaung Tun, the security adviser, said. “But what we want to make clear is that it’s not the policy of the government to condone these excesses.”After years of persecution, some Rohingya have begun to fight back. A militant group called Harakah al-Yaqin, or “Faith Movement”, was formed by Rohingya living in Saudi Arabia after the 2012 violence, according to the International Crisis Group. Its leader, Ata Ullah, said hundreds of young Rohingya men have joined the ranks of the group, which now wants to be known as the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army. Myanmar’s government estimates it has about 400 fighters.“In 2012, they killed us and we understood at that time, they would not give us our rights,” said Ata Ullah, speaking by video link from an undisclosed location in Myanmar.Before dawn on 9 October, Rohingya militants staged attacks on border police. The army set about trying to capture the rebels. For a month, it attempted to pressure villagers to give up the insurgents, according to Rohingya elders and villagers.The village of Kyet Yoe Pyin, located on the main road north to Bangladesh in northwest Rakhine, was one of the first to draw the army’s attention on 13 October, according to a military intelligence source. Insurgents had used logs to erect roadblocks near the settlement of 1,300 houses, blocking the way for military vehicles, residents and the military intelligence source said.In retaliation, about 400 soldiers burned down a part of Kyet Yoe Pyin and shot several people, according to four villagers. Officials have blamed insurgents and villagers themselves for the burning of homes.After a few days of trying unsuccessfully to capture the insurgents, the soldiers asked village elders to negotiate. The meeting took place in western Kyet Yoe Pyin. About 300 soldiers crowded the road while four commanders led the talks with five Rohingya men, according to a village elder who attended the meeting. The talks, confirmed by the military intelligence source, were an example of the army’s attempts in those early weeks to pressure the villagers to help identify the rebels.“Their first question was: ‘Who cut the trees?’ We told them we didn’t know,” the village elder recounted. “They told us: ‘We will give you a chance: You can either give us the names of the insurgents, or we will kill you’.”The officers visited Kyet Yoe Pyin on several further occasions, asking about insurgents and taking money in exchange for leaving the remaining houses untouched, the villagers said. A variation of this scene was repeated in other villages in the weeks leading up to 12 November, residents said.FAR FROM HOME: Kutupalang Unregistered Refugee Camp in Bangladesh, where Rohingya refugees live. Photo: ReutersTWO WEEKSOn 12 November, this low-grade violence escalated abruptly when the army clashed with rebels north of two villages in northwestern Rakhine – Rahim’s village Dar Gyi Zar, a settlement of more than 400 houses, and Yae Khat Chaung Gwa Son, with some 600 houses.Muhammad Ismail, another Rohingya teacher from Dar Gyi Zar, said the army spotted insurgents a few kilometres to the north of his village at around 4:00am. After a two-hour shootout, the militants fled towards neighbouring Yae Khat Chaung Gwa Son, where fighting resumed in the afternoon. The area is densely forested, and residents could not say how many militants there were.The leader of the insurgents, Ata Ullah, said he and his men found themselves surrounded. “We had to fight,” he told Reuters. He did not say how many insurgents were involved in the clash.During a day-long battle, some villagers joined the insurgents, fighting the security forces with knives and sticks, according to Ata Ullah and the military. A senior officer was killed and the army brought in two helicopters mounted with guns as back-up, according to official accounts, which described the incident as an ambush by the insurgents.The helicopters swooped in around 4:00pm, hovering low over the road connecting Dar Gyi Zar and Yae Khat Chaung Gwa Son, according to eyewitnesses. The villagers dispersed in panic as one of the helicopters sprayed the insurgents with bullets. The other helicopter fired indiscriminately on those fleeing, five eyewitnesses said. The military intelligence source confirmed that the helicopters dispersed the crowd but denied they shot at civilians.It marked the start of an offensive across a section of northwest Rakhine that lasted about two weeks, according to villagers, aid workers and human rights monitors and a review of satellite imagery from Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International. Security and administrative officials confirmed the scope of the sweep but said they were not aware of abuses.Whole communities fled north towards larger villages and then west to Bangladesh, pursued by the army. Women who were raped said the soldiers shouted “go to Bangladesh.”Three doctors from small clinics near refugee camps in Bangladesh have described treating some three dozen cases of Rohingya women whom they say were raped.“I treated one woman. She was so badly raped she had lost sensation in her lower limbs,” said John Sarkar, 40, a Bangladeshi doctor who has worked with Rohingya refugees for eight years.National Security Adviser Thaung Tun said a commission, set up by Suu Kyi in December and chaired by vice president Myint Swe, a former head of military intelligence, needed time to investigate.“We find it really difficult to believe that the Myanmar military would use (sexual violence) as a tool, sex slaves or rape as a weapon. In Myanmar this is repulsive, it’s not acceptable,” he said.The Suu Kyi appointed investigation is one of several. The army is conducting an internal probe and the ministry of home affairs, which is controlled by the army, is also carrying out an inquiry. Separately, the United Nations has ordered a fact-finding mission to examine allegations of human rights abuses.A senior government source and a senior military source said the commander of the army division that led the operation, major general Khin Maung Soe, had been questioned by investigators in the army probe. The army did not respond to Reuters questions about Khin Maung Soe’s role and Reuters was unable to contact him directly.The ministry of home affairs, meanwhile, is examining 21 cases, including five suspected murders, six rapes, two cases of looting and one case of arson and seven unexplained deaths, according to police colonel Shwe Thaung. Investigators were seeking the army’s cooperation to interrogate soldiers.IN NEED: Rohingya refugees sat at the roadside in February hoping to get money from passersby near Kutupalang Makeshift Refugee Camp in Cox`s Bazar, Bangladesh. Photo: ReutersLEFT BEHINDWhen the sun went down on the villages of Dar Gyi Zar and Yae Khat Chaung Gwa Son on 12 November, the fighting stopped. “The night was tense. Some people sneaked out to neighbouring villages. Others were preparing to move first thing in the morning,” said Muhammad Ismail, the Rohingya teacher who witnessed fighting.But at dawn the next day, soldiers encircled the two villages and set the houses on fire, five eyewitnesses said.Those who could, fled. But the elderly and the infirm stayed. From the rice field where he hid, Rahim said he saw soldiers shooting indiscriminately.Police reports from the period confirm that security forces focused their attention on about 10 villages – Dar Gyi Zar, Yae Khat Chaung Gwa Son and other settlements nearby. They detained nearly 400 people between 12 and 30 November, according to a senior administrator in the state capital of Sittwe who received the daily dispatches.The administrator, who briefed Reuters on condition of anonymity, said the reports described a lawful counterinsurgency operation.One of the villages that bore the brunt of the post-12-November crackdown was Kyar Gaung Taung, a settlement of about 300 houses in northwest Rakhine.Residents say that for five days starting around 16 November, security forces swooped in, searching for men. As in neighbouring villages, they arrested or killed most working-age men, and gathered the women in groups, carrying out invasive body searches.Reuters talked to 17 people from Kyar Gaung Taung from November through March by telephone and in person in Bangladeshi camps, including five rape victims, three close relatives of those raped and several village elders. They corroborated one another’s accounts.Shamshida, a 30-year-old mother of six, was ordered to come out of her house.“One of the soldiers put a machete to my chest and bit me on the back. Then, they started picking women from the group gathered on the road. I was selected and pulled inside the house. I knelt down thinking that may help and the last thing I remember was one of the soldiers kicking me in the head,” said Shamshida, who identifies with a single name.When her husband and her sister found her several hours later, she was stripped naked, unconscious, covered in bruises and bleeding from her mouth and her vagina.They carried her to the neighbouring village of U Shey Kya several hundred metres away, where she regained consciousness, was showered and taken care of by a village doctor.After eight days, she returned to her village, where there were no men left and many houses were burned down.Doctors in Bangladesh said the Rohingya women they treated had torn vaginal tissue and scars inside their mouths from having guns inserted. In some cases, the women couldn’t walk and had to be carried by relatives to the clinics. Many were covered in bruises and bite marks.Sarkar, the Bangladeshi doctor, and others administered abortion-inducing kits, painkillers and antibiotics. In cases where the kits didn’t work, they referred the women to regional hospitals for abortions.As thousands of Rohingya were fleeing across the river border to Bangladesh, Suu Kyi was not in the country. In early December she went to Singapore, attending meetings and a ceremony to have a purple orchid named after her in the city-state’s botanic gardens.Suu Kyi’s defenders, including some Western diplomats, say she is hamstrung by a military-drafted constitution that left the army in control of key security ministries and much of the apparatus of the state. Suu Kyi may be playing a long game, these diplomats said – back the military for now and coax the generals into accepting a rewriting of the constitution to reduce their power.During her trip, Suu Kyi gave an interview to state broadcaster Channel News Asia, in which she accused the international community of “always drumming up cause for bigger fires of resentment,” adding it didn’t help “if everybody is just concentrating on the negative side of the situation.” She appealed for understanding of her nation’s ethnic complexities, and said the world should not forget that the military operation was launched in response to the Rohingya insurgents’ attacks on border posts.Rahim, the village schoolteacher, and his family were among thousands of Rohingya who made the 2 kilometer (1.2 mile) river crossing to Bangladesh.On 8 April, in a Bangladesh refugee camp, Rahim’s wife Rasheda gave birth to their first boy, Futu, or “little son.” Rahim doesn’t know whether Futu will ever see his homeland.last_img

Philippine leader says charges will be filed in factory fire

Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Sponsored Stories center_img He said he did not want a repeat of the tragedy and has ordered the inspection of some 300,000 factories in metropolitan Manila. The fire was one of the worst in the country after a 1996 disco blaze that killed 162 people. A fire at a budget hotel in 2001 killed 75.Aquino said an investigation showed Kentex Manufacturing Corp. in Valenzuela city, a northern Manila suburb, failed to install an automatic sprinkler system and a protected fire exit inside the facility. The company also failed to obtain the required fire safety inspection certificate since it began operating in 1996, except in 2012, and even that certificate is in question, he said.“We do not want a repeat of this tragedy and to pin down through the filing of charges all those who conspired for this tragedy to happen,” he said.He urged the public, especially factory workers, to report to authorities any safely risks. The fire shows that each agency of government failed to do what it should have done, he said.“We need to take out the whip and say, ‘Hey, you have obligations and if you have been negligent of your obligation there will be a corresponding punishment,’” Aquino said.Government lawyers will determine the charges to be filed but that among them are reckless imprudence resulting in homicide, falsification of public documents and dereliction of duty. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Valenzuela Mayor Rex Gatchalian told reporters rules cutting red tape set by the Department of Interior and Local Governments allowed the city government to issue the factory a provisionary permit to operate, with the fire safety certificate to follow within the year of operation.
