Skhirat – Climate change is a potential source of tensions, intra-community and interstate wars, President of COP22 Steering Committee, Salaheddine Mezouar, said Wednesday in Skhirat (Rabat outskirts).Speaking at the opening of the 2nd International Conference “Defence and Climate Change,” Mezouar stressed that “climate disorder causes a security disorder,” noting that climate change “represents a major risk for peace and security.”“Because of the expected doubling of Africa’s population by 2050, climate change will have catastrophic effects on the continent with a decrease of 4.7% of GDP, mainly due to the deterioration of the agricultural sector, which is likely to undermine the stability of States by increasing unemployment, particularly within the youth, and promote radicalization,” he stressed. Mezouar also noted that defence departments are already contributing to climate action by using space technologies to measure emissions and observe weather and climate phenomena.He said that the time is ripe “to bring together advanced and development researches in order to propose solutions and alternative to deal with climate change.”“This requires initiatives to improve investment, research and development programs,” he said, stressing the importance of early warning systems to establish a resilient security environment.”Mezouar also hailed the announcement by the International Civil Aviation Organization of the draft resolution aiming at establishing a market-based measure for addressing greenhouse gas emissions.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California lawmakers are poised to approve a framework for a $214.8 billion operating budget on Thursday, the first step in a spending package that seeks to address the teacher shortage, expand health care to some adults living in the country illegally and bolster the state’s top firefighting agency following the most devastating wildfire season in state history.State law requires lawmakers to pass the framework by midnight Saturday. If they don’t, they don’t get paid. Lawmakers reached an agreement on Sunday night and scheduled a vote for Thursday, days ahead of the deadline.“I do think it’s a good budget,” said state Sen. Holly Mitchell, a Los Angeles Democrat and chairwoman of the Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Committee. “In every budget there is good and there is could be better.”The massive bill, totalling more than 900 pages, directs tax dollars in the state’s most populous state. But lawmakers must still pass more than a dozen other bills to implement the budget. These “trailer bills” could contain important details, including implementing a monthly fee on cellphone bills to pay for upgrades to the 911 system.The spending plan is the first under Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, who has positioned himself as resistor-in-chief to Republican President Donald Trump’s administration.The Trump administration has sought to weaken former President Barack Obama’s health care law by eliminating a tax on people who refuse to purchase private health insurance. The budget under Newsom would bring that tax back, using part of the money to make California the first state in the country to help middle class families pay a portion of their monthly health insurance premiums.While the Trump administration continues to crack down on illegal immigration, the budget lawmakers are set to vote on Thursday would make California the first state to give some adults living in the country illegally government-funded health insurance.Health care for people living in the country illegally is part of Democrats’ plan to eventually get everyone in California to have health insurance. But the policy has angered Republican lawmakers, who argue it’s not fair to tax people in the country legally for not buying health insurance while making people living in the country illegally eligible for taxpayer-funded health insurance.“I just don’t get the prioritization,” said Republican state Sen. John Moorlach of Costa Mesa, who noted he legally immigrated to the United States from the Netherlands in 1960.The budget includes increases in public education, bringing the state spending to $12,018 for every student in K-12 public schools. It would give students studying to be teachers grants of up to $20,000 if they promise to teach subject matters impacted by the teacher shortage, including science, technology, math and engineering.And following the states deadliest wildfire season in history, the spending plan includes $40.3 million for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection to buy 13 new fire engines and hire 131 people to operate them. It also includes $13.1 million to accept seven used C-130 air tankers from the federal government. The air tankers are free, but the state must pay to maintain and operate them.Adam Beam, The Associated Press
The growing food crisis around the world, the situation in Afghanistan, counter-terrorism efforts, preventive diplomacy and regional cooperation were on the agenda today during talks between General Assembly President Srgjan Kerim and the leaders of Turkmenistan. Mr. Kerim began his official visit to Central Asia today by holding meetings in Ashgabat, the Turkmen capital, with President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov, Foreign Minister Rashid Meredov and Parliament Chairperson Akja Nurberdjeva. One of the key themes was food security as a growing number of countries worldwide experience public protests and riots over the surging cost of basics such as rice, wheat and corn. Janos Tisovszky, a spokesperson for Mr. Kerim, told reporters today that the Assembly President has been closely watching developments in the food crisis and has voiced concern about their economic, social, political and security impact. Mr. Tisovszky said the Ashgabat meetings also focused on Turkmenistan’s cooperation with the UN and its contribution to the current priority issues of the 192-member Assembly, such as climate change, UN reform and efforts to accelerate progress towards the anti-poverty targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Tomorrow Mr. Kerim is scheduled to visit the UN Regional Centre for Preventive Diplomacy in Central Asia and to meet with the UN Country Team in Turkmenistan, before he heads to neighbouring Kazakhstan later in the week. 21 April 2008The growing food crisis around the world, the situation in Afghanistan, counter-terrorism efforts, preventive diplomacy and regional cooperation were on the agenda today during talks between General Assembly President Srgjan Kerim and the leaders of Turkmenistan.
Spanning 130,000 kilometres from the Pacific Ocean to the borders of Europe, the proposal for the Asian Highway network is expected to be adopted in 2004. “Globalization has accentuated the need for greater efficiency and integration of all transport modes throughout the Asian and Pacific region,” ESCAP Executive Secretary Kim Hak-Su told a meeting of the Committee on Transport, Communications, Tourism and Infrastructure Development. The Committee is proposing further intra-regional cooperation, widely considered essential to cope with increased the transit of goods and vehicles. The next phase of planning will involve coordinating ports and railways into the overall transport network and promoting tourist destinations along the Asian Highway.
New figures reveal the rise of “generation Xanax” – with a doubling in young people being treated for addiction to anti-anxiety drugs.The statistics from Public Health England show 315 cases in which those under the age of 18 were treated for problems with benzodiazepines – a class of drugs used to treat anxiety and insomnia.They include the drug Alprazolam (better known as Xanax) where there was a six-fold rise in numbers treated. Latest NHS figures suggest one in eight children has a mental health disorder, amid warnings of an “epidemic of anxiety”.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––Earlier this year an investigation found pupils as young as 11 were taking anti-anxiety drugs, with 240 ambulance callouts for children who had taken medication like Xanax.Charities claimed some pupils were dealing it on school premises.

“The one thing I do know is that I’m going to be a candidate for Convention, and then it’s up to membership to decide, ” he told RadioEP.ie, adding that he had received “tremendous encouragement” from voters in the area.Ireland is to lose an MEP next year as a result of Croatia’s accession to the European Union, and a number of options for the re-drawing of electoral boundaries are currently being considered by the Constituency Commission. A decision will be delivered at the end of the month.Several of those options include proposals to merge parts of the current East constituency with the North West, which could mean Higgins and MEP Mairead McGuinness competing for votes in a four-seater.Higgins said it “would be brilliant” if that came to pass, and said he would be confident of the party taking two of the four seats in any enlarged constituency.“I think the chemistry’s absolutely perfect,” he said, adding that McGuinness had been “une damme formidable in terms of performance” in the European Parliament since her election in 2004.The European Parliament elections will be held between 22 and 25 May 2014.Read: This Fine Gael TD is not ruling out a European Parliament bid next year >Revealed: Fine Gael’s proposals for redrawing Ireland’s European constituency map > FINE GAEL MEP for the North West region Jim Higgins maintains he’s “fighting fit” and determined to face any attempt to remove him from the party ticket ahead of next May’s European elections.It follows speculation that the party may try and run TD John O’Mahony — one of four Fine Gael deputies elected in Enda Kenny’s Mayo stronghold; with the logic being that the party is considered as unlikely to retain all of those seats in the next general election.Speaking to TheJournal.ie last month, O’Mahony said he was not in the business of trying to sideline anybody, but that “if there was a vacancy that would be a different thing”.Higgins has dismissed the speculation as a “silly season” story, and while admitting a poor relationship with Fine Gael HQ, he said there was “no indication” that they are engaged in “some sort of devious plot to oust me”.“But if there is, and if there is at any stage an indication that they are going to oust me — as Margaret Thatcher said at one stage – I’m ‘not for turning’”.
An image from the Ruislip redevelopment. Source: GAAKiernan, who coaches some of Ireland’s best track prospects, pointed to a huge disparity with the funds available to other amateur athletes.“€600,000 is not a huge amount of money but it’s a lot of money that could be used in certain areas.“I’ll just give you an example. In one of my training groups tonight, there’s a kid coming up from Athlone and he’ll spend €15 on the bus.He’s a sub four-minute miler, he gets no state money, he gets nothing like that. He doesn’t have that much money to play around with. €15 is a huge amount of money to him.That can be replicated all over the country, with swimmers, with rowers, with boxers, with athletes.“To give €600,000 to the GAA, I’m just wondering did the GAA lobby the government for money, which in that case requires a lot of nerve for someone with so much of it, or did the the government decide to give it to the GAA out of their own bat, which strikes me as being a version of stroke politics.”Kiernan, who admitted that he is not fan of Gaelic games in general, again took issue with players’ skill and fitness levels.“I don’t actually think it’s a particularly skilful game but I commented more on their fitness more than anything else.“If you’re training five times a week for the whole year, that’s good enough to run a reasonably respectable 10k road race in the Phoenix Park. If you’re an international athlete, you train twice a day every week for 50 of the 52. It’s a different thing entirely.”Commander Chris Hadfield presents ‘An Astronaut’s Guide to Hurling’Injury victim Meehan hasn’t ruled out return to inter-county football JERRY KIERNAN HAS slammed the GAA again and lashed out at the government for funding the Association with taxpayers’ money.Kiernan — who made headlines last year when he controversially branded inter-county players as “unfit” — insisted that GAA should not receive any government grants despite being the largest sporting organisation in the country.And the former Irish Olympian took another shot at players’ skills by claiming that “there’s not an awful lot required” to play football and hurling.His latest comments follow yesterday’s announcement by Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore that €600,000 will be given towards a €5 million redevelopment of London GAA’s headquarters in Ruislip.The GAA has pledged €1.4 million of central funding for the project with the outstanding balance to be met by the London County Board and its clubs.But Kiernan, who finished ninth in the marathon at the 1984 Olympics, said the Association is capable of funding itself and that government money would be better spent on sports that represent Ireland internationally.“My views on this are actually quite blunt,” he told Shane Coleman on Newstalk. “I don’t believe that the GAA should get any amount of taxpayers’ money. They’re the richest association in the country. They get everything. [They had] bumper profits last year, €600,000 isn’t an awful lot to them. If they have a project to revamp the stadium over in London, let them do it out of their own funds.”
Clark Public Utilities workers on the East Coast are sending back video and photos of their mission. Clark Public Utilities crews have arrived in New Jersey to help restore power on the East Coast in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, joining electric companies across the U.S. in the recovery effort.Two crews and one superintendent — a total of 11 employees — have joined line workers from other regional utilities to assist FirstEnergy, an electric company serving 6 million customers in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions, stretching from the Ohio-Indiana border to the New Jersey shore.It’s unclear what, exactly, Clark Public Utilities staff will work on as the crews it sent only recently arrived in New Jersey, and received a safety briefing and their initial assignments, Heather Allmain, communications services manager for the utility, said Friday.“They’re pretty focused right now,” Allmain said. “They just got their assignments today. They just got settled.”Depending on how their work goes, the utility’s crews, staying in a hotel in Edison, N.J., are expected to spend 10 to 14 days working on power restoration projects, Allmain said.
Sal Ardito holds his Bible while looking over the sidewalk memorial in front of the Emanuel AME Church on Friday, June 19, 2015 in Charleston, S.C. Dylann Storm Roof, 21, is accused of killing nine people during a Wednesday night Bible study at the church.As the nation remembered the nine lives lost in the Charleston, S.C. church shooting, so did clergy and residents in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.Two prayer vigils were held on June 19, at the Metropolitan AME Church and the African-American Civil War Memorial and Museum. During the vigils mourners remembered the victims, preached togetherness and forgiveness, and discussed topics prevalent in the struggle for African American justice and equality including White supremacy, “Black Lives Matter,” and church bombings.“I am grateful that God’s greatness is not diminished by tragedy,” Rev. Tony Lee, senior pastor of Community of Hope AME Church in Temple Hill, Maryland, said during the prayer vigil. “We pray for the healing of community….We are here from all different views, from all different backgrounds, from all different stations in life believing that the Lord can make a way.”During the vigil, Lee spoke of an experience with a White Uber driver in Charleston. He said the driver told him that something happened in his heart after he heard Christians were killed in church. Lee told the congregation that the driver showed him that “sometimes it takes great pain to bring great healing…[but] God was still in the midst of it all.”Churchgoers prayed for the families of the victims: Cynthia Hurd, 54; Susie Jackson, 87; Ethel Lance, 70; Rev. DePayne MiddletonDoctor, 49; Rev. Clementa Pinckney, 41; Tywanza Sanders, 26; Rev. Daniel Simmons Sr., 74; Rev. Sharonda Singleton, 45; Myra Thompson, 59.The vigil outside the museum rang a different tune, calling for restitution and justice for the lives lost. “What was on that paper [Bill of Rights],was to stop your struggle, said Eugene Puryear, D.C. Council At-Large candidate. “The war for Black America has not stopped…. We have to change our mindset.”He added, “This is a struggle for Blacks, but also a struggle for human beings.”A poster of the fallen was displayed with each victim pointed to so the crowd would know who they were as their names were called. “How many days will it take when we say we can’t take no more!” Abdul Khadie Muhammad, a member of the Nation of Islam, said.According to Bishop Adrian A. Taylor, Sr. of the Shabbath Commandment Church in Oxen Hill, Maryland, the only way to gain justice was to hurt the pockets of White supremacists. “We need to organize and boycott,” Taylor said.Linda Poulson contributed to this article.

The Imperial Hotel, Delhi recently won the Iconic 2018 award for the Best luxury hotel. In Delhi, the hotel is more than a revered legacy of the imperial times. It is a testimony to the golden chapters of India’s gleaming heritage of bespoke hospitality. And, Vijay Wanchoo, Senior Executive Vice President – who looks every bit a royal Britisher has carved his own graph in the line of luxury leanings.Wanchoo, a distinguished Kashmiri Pandit is impeccable, erudite and deeply spiritual.

Also Read – Add new books to your shelfOn winning the best luxury hotel award, he states, “I have walked on the pathway of luxury for almost four decades watching it come alive in many forms, in larger avenues and also inexplicably in finer things.” “I believe luxury is something that continues to evolve and can be experienced in many ways either over the top or inspiring and understated. Luxury has different meanings for different perspectives, but for me it means a grand culture which is a step ahead, individualistic and which stays distinguished,” he adds. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveTalking about Imperial, Delhi being a legacy for three decades, he says, “At the legendary Imperial we already have a strong legacy of guests for over three generations. Additionally due to our international market repute based on our historic product and impeccable services, we attract emerging markets who wish to have unique dining experiences the hotel is known for. Our award winning restaurants and bars act as an impetus to deliver measurable positive growth, tapping newer markets and attracting revenue generating sources, consistently.” “With changing times, I certainly see global and domestic brands trying to chart their growth across India’s skyline, vying for supremacy in a suddenly crowded Indian hotel market. However, since our strategy has always rested on providing our guests a unique experience and a personalized service, it has never really affected us. It is all about creating a home away from home for our loyal guests. For instance, to bring home a true Indian experience at The Imperial, I introduced Namaskar to welcome guests. Further we have been celebrating all Indian festivals to keep the guests abreast with Indian culture, we pioneered The Imperial Culinary Club for promoting Imperial cuisine and even launched an experiential stay for the single lady traveler with the Eliza wing,” adds Wanchoo, explaining how the hotel balances domestic and global demands. As Vice President Wanchoo has worked on growth potential. ” For increasing our growth potential, we initiated specialized art tours for guests to explore rich history and fine art across the hotel and also the Afternoon tea at the Atrium was introduced for a traditional English High Tea experience,” adds Wanchoo. These are a few of the extremely popular programs for discerning guests at The Imperial. The list evolves each year for making The Imperial experience unforgettable. “Our strongest support system remains Food & Beverage and as liquor tops the chart, I would give a substantial weightage to wine and beverages in the revenue pie. Our Bars – 1911 Bar and Patiala Peg enjoy one of the most fascinating, extensive and the biggest wine list in the city and are reckoned for their royal fables, signature drinks and elaborate snack menus,” he adds explaining the food and beverage services of the hotel. Talking about brand building Wanchoo acknowledges, “A brand reckoned internationally, our key feeder markets are USA, UK, Germany, India and France and we are looking to reach out to new markets like Australia, Russia and the Scandinavian region. In order to enhance our business we focus on more specific road shows in our feeder markets to tap new clients and participate in specific appointment based travel marts like WTM, ILTM and other luxury travel marts to showcase our iconic hotel.” The Imperial rests on a repertoire of always being considered as a classic fountainhead for luxury in map of hospitality.

American Express have released the annual Global Business Travel Forecast 2015 and the findings suggest Asia Pacific’s subdued economic growth is likely to impact the business travel market in 2015.Australia is expected to experience modest economic growth next year however decelerating growth in China and combined with a slowdown in the resources sector.Domestic airfare prices are predicted to be flat to slightly higher, and international fares are likely to experience small declines in 2015 in Australia and Asia Pacific.This is a different position from the 2014 Forecast, which saw Asia Pacific set to record the highest rate increases, compared with North America and Europe.Hotel rates across Asia Pacific are expected to be mixed throughout 2015, with capacity remaining a key driver of room rate prices across countries.Hotel occupancy in Australia is high, especially in major cities such as Sydney and Melbourne, which sees many of their hotels fully booked on weekdays.The report states that “savings across hotels in some parts of Asia can be challenging due to ongoing high occupancy rates, however businesses that broaden the range of hotel properties within their policy can reduce costs.”This, combined with few new properties coming on the market, could lead to room rate increases of up to 5 percent, leaving little negotiation space for travel managers.Source = ETB Travel News: Lewis Wiseman
NiYO, the new-age digital banking solutions provider for salaried employees, has launched NiYO Global Travel Card, which is the first-ever forex card with ‘zero forex mark-up’. Travellers, using this card, will not pay any currency exchange premium and international transaction fees – unlike a regular forex card.With the NiYO Global Travel Card, the overseas traveller will effectively have no need for the usual multi-currency forex cards or travellers’ cheques – all the while making international transactions cost-effective across 150-plus countries and 35 million merchants worldwide.Besides the cost-effective feature, NiYO Global Card also offers instant digital onboarding, convenient loading from the user’s bank account via NEFT/IMPS.The card is supported by a cutting-edge mobile app, which gives users the ability to lock and unlock either the full card or a payment channel anytime, anywhere in the world. The app also provides real-time notifications on usage, exchange rates and refunds, while helping users find convenient ATM locations, avail nearby offers – thus making it one of the most modern cards in the world today.Further, business travellers can submit claims on-the-go by adding bills for each transaction right in the app. These claims can be instantaneously approved by their employer organisations via the NiYO Corporate Portal.NiYO CEO and Co-founder Vinay Bagri said, “The forex card market in India is worth USD 17 billion; around 20 million people are expected to travel abroad this year.

With such a staggering number of Indians travelling abroad, we aim to capture a lion’s share of the market.”NiYO CTO and Co-founder Virender Bisht said, “Our aim has been to facilitate hassle-free experience among our customer. Forex is one of the key components for travel and remains a concern. International travellers are always burdened with high currency exchange rate charged by banks, which varies between 1-3% of the amount transacted. Banks also charge either a flat fee or a set percentage of the transaction amount in addition to the currency exchange charge. Moreover, people are also very worried about card security abroad. This card is a one-stop solution for all of these problems. We have invested our best effort and technology in the designing process to provide the safety feature along with other components. The card has already been reviewed and appreciated by many top executives from the India Inc. and today, we are glad to present it to our customers at large.”
Price Gains Continue to Build Up Steam Share April 14, 2014 491 Views FNC Inc. Home Prices 2014-04-14 Tory Barringer in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Headlines, News FNC, Inc.’s Residential Price Index (RPI) once again picked up its clip in February, rising at the highest annual rate in nearly eight years, the company reported.The national index, created to gauge price movement among “normal” home sales (exclusive of distressed properties), climbed 9.1 percent year-over-year in February, bringing it back to levels last seen at the peak of the housing market in June 2006 as non-distressed sales gain market share.The two narrower composites measuring 30-city and 10-city price changes ratcheted up even higher, rising 10.7 percent and 11.5 percent yearly, respectively, with price momentum picking up in most of the country.“The momentum is expected to pick up as Spring home buying is getting into full swing, even absorbing the slack caused by the bad weather that affected much of the country,” FNC said in its monthly report.On a monthly basis, the national index rose 0.5 percent—the highest increase since November—while the 30- and 10-city composites were up 0.7 percent and 0.8 percent, respectively.Breaking down the 30-city index, Sacramento and Chicago experienced the largest one-month gains at 2.9 percent each—a full percentage point higher than the next highest gain (Nashville at 1.9 percent).While the rebound in Sacramento likely just reflects a comeback from an unexpectedly large decline the city saw in January, FNC says “home prices in Chicago are gathering momentum with February’s impressive gain following a strong January performance.”Meanwhile, prices in nine other cities—including San Diego, Orlando, and Phoenix—continue to see solid improvements.Six markets out of the 30-city composite posted negative movement: Baltimore (-0.9 percent); Denver (-0.3 percent); Minneapolis (-0.4 percent); Portland, Oregon (-0.9 percent); St. Louis (-0.4 percent); and Washington, D.C. (-0.7 percent). Prices stayed flat in San Antonio, the only city to see no change.
