New UNWorld Bank report shows world a long way from achieving universal

Some 400 million people do not have access to health services and 6 per cent of people in low- and middle-income countries are tipped into or pushed further into extreme poverty because of the high cost of health spending, according to a report released today by the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) and World Bank Group.“The world’s most disadvantaged people are missing out on even the most basic services,” Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny, WHO Assistant Director-General, Health Systems and Innovation, said in a joint WHO/World Bank press release. “A commitment to equity is at the heart of universal health coverage,” continued Dr. Kieny. “Health policies and programmes should focus on providing quality health services for the poorest people, women and children, people living in rural areas and those from minority groups.”The joint WHO/World Bank report, Tracking universal health coverage: First global monitoring report, is the first of its kind to measure health service coverage and financial protection to assess countries’ progress towards universal health coverage.Launched today, the report said more people have access to essential health services today than at any other time in history, and “for some health services, global population coverage already surpasses 80 per cent, and in the past decade there is some evidence that the proportion of people hit by health service-related catastrophic spending and impoverishment has dropped somewhat.”“However,” the report said, “there is still a long way to go on the road to UHC [universal health coverage] both in terms of health service and financial protection coverage.”The report looks at global access to essential health services – including family planning, antenatal care, skilled birth attendance, child immunization, antiretroviral therapy, tuberculosis treatment, and access to clean water and sanitation¬ – in 2013, and found that at least 400 million people lacked access to at least one of these services.In addition, across 37 countries, 6 per cent of the population was tipped or pushed further into extreme poverty ($1.25/day) because they had to pay for health services out of their own pockets.The World Bank’s Senior Director of Health, Nutrition and Population, Dr. Tim Evans, noted that the report “is a wakeup call.”“It shows that we’re a long way from achieving universal health coverage,” Dr. Evans said. “We must expand access to health and protect the poorest from health expenses that are causing them severe financial hardship.”This is the first in a series of annual reports that WHO and the World Bank Group will produce on tracking progress towards UHC across countries. WHO and the World Bank Group recommend that countries pursuing universal health coverage should aim to achieve a minimum of 80 per cent population coverage of essential health services, and that everyone everywhere should be protected from catastrophic and impoverishing health payments, according to a joint press release. read more

Security Council condemns reported slave trade of migrants in Libya

In a statement read out to a formal meeting by Ambassador Koro Bessho of Japan, Council President for December, the 15-member body expressed “grave concern” at reports of migrants being sold into slavery in Libya and emphasized that all migrants should be treated with humanity and dignity and that their rights should be fully respected. The Council urged the Libyan authorities and all Member States to comply with their obligations under international law and stressed the need to transfer detainees to State authority. The Council also encouraged those authorities to reinforce cooperation with international organizations and UN agencies and to ensure full humanitarian access to detention centres. The Council welcomed the statement by the Presidency Council of the Government of National Accord of Libya denouncing trafficking in persons, including for the purpose of slavery, inside or outside the country, noting that Libyan authorities had launched an investigation and were committed to bringing perpetrators to justice. The Council also welcomed statements by the African Union calling for an immediate end to such practices and by the UN Secretary‑General requesting United Nations actors to actively pursue the matter. Reaffirming support for the Action Plan for Libya, the Council emphasized that a stable Libya was the only way to help improve the living conditions of all people in the country, including migrants. RELATED: UN agencies working to address slavery, abuses against African migrants and refugees, Security Council toldUnderlining the need for all actors to cooperate with the Government of National Accord of Libya, including assisting the country to build capacity to secure its borders and end human trafficking, the Council urged ratification and implementation of international instruments that countered such trafficking by all Member States. The Council encouraged cooperation between the European Union, the African Union and the United Nations to protect the lives of migrants and refugees along migration routes, inside Libya in particular. In addition, it underlined the need for coordination of efforts to tackle the root causes of large movements of people – including forced displacement, unmanaged migration and trafficking – in a comprehensive manner to prevent exploitation of refugees and migrants as well as for implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. read more

Joan Burton is the new leader of the Labour Party

first_imgUpdated 22.45pmSOCIAL PROTECTION MINISTER Joan Burton has been named as leader of the Labour party, following the announcement of the final results in Dublin’s Mansion House this afternoon.It follows a five-week campaign, with Burton winning 77.5 per cent of the vote in a landslide victory over Alex White, the junior health minister, who was the only other contender for the top job.Four TDs are vying to become the party’s deputy leader — with the results of that vote set to be announced later this evening – but already there are indications that junior minister Alan Kelly will win that contest.Burton’s election comes as no great surprise — the Dublin West TD has been seen as the front-runner and leader-in-waiting ever since Eamon Gilmore announced he’d be quitting in the wake of a disastrous showing by the party in last month’s local and European elections.She’s expected to be confirmed as the country’s 23rd Tánaiste later this afternoon, after Gilmore officially stepped down earlier, and will be just the third woman to hold the position, after Mary Harney and Mary Coughlan.https://vine.co/v/MUdWtHBWOnMhttps://vine.co/v/MUdZnFZBeeJFollowing this afternoon’s announcement, made in the Round Room of the Mansion House just before 4pm, Gilmore said he was proud that Labour had elected its first woman leader.“The job you are undertaking is a difficult one – I know,” he told Burton, who in turn thanked the former leader for “the incredible journey” he’d led Labour on.In her speech, Burton said her job was to ask the Irish people to have trust in her as Labour leader, and in the party as a whole, and that she would have a relentless focus in Government on getting people and businesses back to work. White, who conceded the contest earlier this afternoon, described Burton as a woman of exceptional ability, adding:She is tenacious, she is a fighter.Speaking ahead of this afternoon’s announcement, Burton insisted she had made no decisions as yet about a reshuffle of Labour ministers, but that she expected to meet the Taoiseach after the weekend to discuss it.White wouldn’t be drawn on whether he was expecting a promotion to the front bench, saying only “this is Joan’s day”.Burton is expected to hold preliminary talks with Enda Kenny by phone this evening.In total 2,720 Labour members cast their vote in a postal ballot with 19 votes spoiled, giving a total valid poll of 2,701 and a quota 1,351.Burton took 2,094 votes while the defeated White took 607.A short history…A former accountant, Burton trained with PriceWaterhouse in Dublin prior to becoming a senior lecturer in DIT.She was first elected to the Dáil in 1992, and served as a junior minister in the Department of Social Welfare in the Fianna Fáil-Labour coalition, later moving to become junior minister with responsibility for overseas aid in the mid-1990s Rainbow Coalition.Burton lost her seat in the 1997 General Election, but was elected again in 2002 and has remained a TD ever since — taking over in Social Protection in the wake of the last General Election.She’s married to Pat Carroll, a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics at DIT Bolton St. They have one daughter Aoife, who now works as a barrister in Dublin.- additional reporting from Hugh O’ConnellRead: One of these two people will be Labour leader later today. Here’s what they told us… Read: Why Eamon Gilmore wants a top EU job, and why it would be a win for Labour if he got it Source: Hugh O’Connell/Twitter She said the hustings — held in various locations around the country over the last month —– had been a great exercise in democracy.Concluding her speech to the party faithful, she said:Let’s go on to the next stage of the journey — and let’s win.

Angry Birds creator Rovio addresses Android problems

first_imgIt’s undeniable that across the mobile platforms one of the most popular games is Angry Birds. The guys at Rovio figured out the perfect combination of elements needed in order to make a game insanely addicting and fun for everyone at the same time.Their recent release to Android has been an extremely successful one. The demo was downloaded more times than any other game demo on the Android Market, and is on track for being a global success. The full version of the game brought down both the Rovio website, as well as the servers at GetJar on the day of the release. The seas were smooth for Rovio until the latest update, adding 45 levels and a new bird to solve puzzles with. Rovio addresses the issues that have been seen in a recent post to the company blog.The problem started with the update. Something in that addition caused performance to shoot straight down for several of the Android devices that had been previously enjoying the same quality as any other phone. The Rovio twitter stream and emails were full of outraged customers who were no longer able to enjoy the game that had occupied so much of their time. Rovio wrote recently on the subject in an attempt to explain the situation, and their resolution.With our latest update, we worked hard to bring Angry Birds to even more Android devices. Despite our efforts, we were unsuccessful in delivering optimal performance. Unfortunately, Rovio does little to explain the actual problem, but instead insists that they are performing additional tests to resolve the issues. Anyone with access to YouTube can see that the performance decrease on some devices was significant, making it clear that sufficient testing was not done to ensure the app would consume the same resources it did in the past. For some reason, the exact same game, only with more levels, was requiring more resources. The 17 now-unsupported devices, as well as a general exclaimer regarding custom ROMs and Android 1.5 owners will be unable to use the current official version of Angry Birds.It seems that rather than attempt to explain or resolve this increase in resources, Rovio will be creating a “lighweight” version of their app for Android that will cover the current unsupported devices. This version will likely lack GPU intensive items like shading, but Rovio hopes to deliver as similar an experience to the “full” version as possible. It shows an impressive level of commitment to their customers by going this route, and throughout the blog Rovio constantly states a desire to have as much feedback as possible given to them for help.The most common side affect to this blog has been a rehash of the concept of “fragmentation”, in that the app doesn’t work on all versions of the operating system. Unfortunately for those posing the argument, Rovio manages to avoid calling this “fragmentation” and in fact the only mentioning of the operating system is the legacy version 1.5, to which very few Android devices still maintain. Rovio made changes to their  game that increased the required resources to an unnecessary level. I say unnecessary because the previous version of the game worked just fine on a great many of the now unsupported devices, and leaves me to conclude that this has nothing at all to do with fragmentation, but rather a mistake on Rovio’s part that is being corrected in the form of a lightweight version. Either way you look at it, however, I remain impressed at Rovio’s desire to make the app function in as many places as possible.last_img read more

Papastratos is hiring

first_imgMarlboro maker Philip Morris has invested €300 million (A$449.1 million) in its Greek unit Papastratos to convert the cigarette plant into a maker of tobacco sticks for its smokeless IQOS product.Launched in 2014, the IQOS device heats tobacco refills to produce tobacco-flavoured vapour instead of burning it, which produces hazardous smoke and tar. It is a hybrid of traditional and electronic cigarettes.Following the announcement in March, the tobacco company has moved forward with their project to boost the Greek economy.The investment, which has opened 400 new staff positions in Greece, was announced while there was still much distance to be covered between Athens and its creditors. Papastratos, a wholly owned subsidiary of its New York-based parent company, is the largest manufacturer and distributor of cigarettes in Greece, with revenue in 2015 of €1.3 billion (A$1.9 billion) with a 40 percent share of the domestic market. The project will bring three new buildings at Papastratos’ facility in Aspropyrgos, outside Athens, with new lines of tobacco processing and production of refills for IQOS. “We are implementing what Greece needs right now, investments, new jobs and exports,” Harpantidis told reporters.“We will be making a product that will be exported to more than 30 countries around the world.”Papastratos has announced it will be hiring production process technicians, maintenance process electricians, IS systems analysts, HR staff, and engineers.

Un glissement de terrain en Chine fait 46 morts dont 19 enfants

first_imgUn glissement de terrain en Chine fait 46 morts, dont 19 enfantsDans le sud de la Chine un glissement de terrain a emporté vendredi 46 personnes, dont 19 enfants. La province de Yunnan avait déjà subi en septembre et octobre un tremblement de terrain et un premier glissement qui avaient provoqué la mort de 99 personnes. L’exploitation du charbon et le non-respect des normes de sécurité sont mis en cause.Le bilan définitif est de 46 morts, dont 19 enfants. L’AFP a transmis ce matin la terrible annonce des autorités chinoises suite au glissement de terrain meurtrier qui a frappé vendredi le district de Zhenxiong. Celui-ci est situé dans la province de Yunnan, dans le sud de la Chine. Quatorze maisons de la ville de Gaopo ont été totalement emportées par une coulée de 16 mètres de haut qui a tout ravagé sur son passage.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Le bilan est lourd chez les enfants car ces derniers n’avaient pas cours hier. Il s’agissait en effet du premier jour de leurs vacances du nouvel an chinois. Plus d’un millier de sauveteurs issus de l’armée, des pompiers, de la police et des mines se sont relayés à la recherche de survivants. Le bilan devrait être définitif. Le gouvernement chinois a annoncé qu’une aide de 20 000 yuans (environ 2500 euros) par personne décédée sera reversée aux familles.Une région qui a déjà beaucoup souffertLa région avait déjà été durement frappée par des catastrophes naturelles. Le 7 septembre un séisme de magnitude 5,6 avait causé la mort de 81 personnes et favorisé l’apparition, le mois suivant, d’un premier glissement de terrain. Celui-ci avait emporté une école et causé la mort de 18 enfants qui y travaillaient. La région est également soumise à des températures exceptionnellement basses alors que la Chine vit son hiver le plus froid depuis 28 ans. Les fortes pluies et la neige qui se sont abattues ces dix derniers jours sur le district expliqueraient le glissement de terrain, à la faveur d’un sol déjà fragilisé par le séisme de septembre. C’est du moins l’explication officielle. De nombreuses voix dissidentes s’élèvent pourtant afin de dénoncer l’activité minière sauvage qui sévit dans la région ainsi que les constructions anarchiques de bâtiments avec peu de respect pour les normes de sécurité. La ville Gaopo abrite par exemple par exemple une mine de charbon. Lors d’une conférence de presse retransmise à la télévision, un représentant local a fermement rejeté ces accusations et maintient que le climat et le précédent tremblement de terre sont les seuls coupables.Le 12 janvier 2013 à 13:35 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

12 Sly Web Tricks That Put You in Control

first_imgAugust 26, 2008 Crack a Windows PasswordThe problem: You lost your Windows password (or you want to discover someone else’s). Now you have no way to fully access your account without getting it back.The trick: Download Ophcrack Live CD and burn it to a disc; then restart your computer and boot from the CD. Point Ophcrack at the hard drive where Windows is installed, and it’ll start cracking your Windows password.The effect: The shorter and simpler the Windows password, the more quickly and easily Ophcrack will break it. But Ophcrack can only crack alphanumeric passwords. If the password contains other characters or symbols (like “@”), Ophcrack won’t do the job.Read Books on the D.L. at WorkThe problem: Whether or not you’ve got any work to do, most employers frown on cracking a book at your desk.The trick: Web site Read at Work is a full-screen Flash application that mimics a Windows desktop and serves up public-domain works in a format that resembles PowerPoint presentations. Classics by Twain, Fitzgerald, Dickinson, and Tolstoy are all yours to read on company time. (Well, if it’s Tolstoy, you might rather just work).The effectiveness: To the casual onlooker, Read at Work convincingly looks like a standard Windows XP window. Whether or not your boss will believe that the Oscar Wilde you’re reading is actually a PowerPoint presentation depends on your boss. And it helps if reading PowerPoint presentations is actually part of your job.Say It With Self-Destructing E-MailThe problem: E-mail is forever. If you fire off an angry or ill-thought-out message, the recipient could hold onto it–and hold it against you–indefinitely.The trick: Send a self-destructing e-mail message by going to the Web site DestructingMessage. Just specify how much time you want to give the recipient before the message implodes (15 seconds to 5 minutes), write your message, and send it.The effect: DestructingMessage can send the e-mail anonymously, or you can send a link to the message yourself. Either way, the recipient has a limited time to read it before it’s gone for good. If the recipient is quick on her feet, though, she could grab a screen shot before it’s gone forever.Go Straight to VoicemailThe problem: Everybody’s been there. You’d rather leave a voicemail than deal with a drawn-out phone conversation. Or you’re a coward with bad news to deliver.The trick: SlyDial connects you directly with your contacts’ voicemail–whether they’ve got their phone turned on or not. Just dial 267-SLYDIAL, enter the number you want to leave a voicemail with, and then, when prompted, just leave your message.The effect: SlyDial works exactly as advertised. Use SlyDial gratis as much as you want, but if you tire of the in-call advertising, premium plans get you to voicemail faster and ad-free. SlyDial voicemails, however, do not self-destruct–I guess they haven’t thought of that yet.Spoof Your E-Mail AddressThe problem: You want to send e-mail from a bogus account.The trick: Forge an e-mail address with your desktop e-mail client. In Thunderbird, all you need is a working SMTP server and a fake account. As long as the SMTP server can send e-mail without requiring authentification, you can use your fake e-mail address as much as you want.The effect: To most people, your spoofed e-mail will appear indistinguishable from a real one. The catch: You won’t get any replies, and a look at the message’s headers can reveal to the recipient that you’re using an unusual SMTP server for that e-mail address.Browse the Net Without Leaving a TraceThe problem: Web sites you visit are tracked by your Web browser in several ways that aren’t immediately obvious–such as browser history, cookies, or cached files. Whether you’re doing some online shopping on a shared computer or visiting Web sites that are, let’s say, embarrassing, it’s hard to make sure that a browsing session doesn’t leave a trace.The trick: Go off the record when you want browsing privacy with the Stealther Firefox extension. Enabled, Stealther makes sure that your browsing history, downloads, disk cache, saved form information, and cookies aren’t saved to your browser.The effect: Stealther works in every respect. Whenever you want to go off the record with your browsing, just go to Tools, Stealther. When you’re ready to go back on the record (after all, browser history and cookies can be very useful), just turn off Stealther. Muahahahahaha!!! Crack a Windows Password 10 min read Brought to you by PCWorld Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. So it’s Friday afternoon, the weekend is just around the corner, and you’re up to no good. Rather than waste your time turning monitors upside down around the office, why not update your tech arsenal? If you have a computer or cell phone on hand, you’re more than ready to beef up your weapons and spy kit with these 12 sly tricks. We’ll teach you why and how (and with what) to do them, and tell you how well you can expect them to work. And you will forget where you heard this information…Turn Wi-Fi Thieves’ Worlds Upside DownThe problem: You took the time and expense to set up a wireless Internet connection at your place. But you’re pretty sure that the cheap bastard next door is stealing it–that is, connecting to the Internet on your dime. Sure, you could take the easy step of password-protecting your network, but what fun is settling for a little common-sense measure like that?The trick: With the help of a lovely little service called Upside-Down-Ternet, you can turn that Wi-Fi thief’s free Internet scheme upside down–literally. With a little clever scripting, every image the thief views via your connection is flipped upside down on his monitor and mirrored, making Web browsing difficult to say the least. You can also redirect every Web request the thief makes to a particular site–the author of the hack suggests Kittenwar. Pretty good, but I would go with an old standby.The effect: The trick takes a little work to set up right, but if you can pull it off, it works perfectly. And doing right by one’s neighbor just makes you feel good inside.Never Be ‘Away’ With Your AIM BotThe problem: Some employers use IM clients to track their workers and ensure they’re keeping their noses to the grindstone–but, hey, you don’t like Big Brother staring over your shoulder.The trick: Create your own AIM bot with the Web site RunABot. An AIM bot is an automated chat robot that resembles any other AIM user, and–if you set it up well–it responds to messages like a real person. Once you register with RunABot, the site walks you through setting up your bare-bones bot; then it’s up to you to make your bot believable.The effect: In the time it takes to customize your bot to fool your boss in all situations, you could probably finish several work projects and earn a few promotions. With just a few minutes of setup time, however, the “hardworker” bot I put together can convincingly participate in simple workplace conversations.Make a Laptop Thief Regret ItThe problem: Every time you leave your table at the bookstore for another cup of coffee, you’ve got to choose what to do with your laptop. You’ll only be gone for a few seconds, so lugging it with you is a pain. Still, the guy with a double espresso has been eyeing your gear since you sat down, and he looks like he could have sticky fingers.The trick: Install an antitheft program on your laptop that monitors unusual behavior when you’re away, setting off an alarm whenever it detects a possible theft. The freeware Windows application Laptop Alarm sounds an alarm whenever your laptop’s power cable is unplugged, the mouse is moved, or the laptop is shut down. Mac users should check out iAlertU , a freeware app that uses your MacBook’s built-in accelerometer to set off the alarm and snag a Webcam picture whenever someone so much as moves your laptop. You can smoothly disable the alarm with your Apple remote like a proper car alarm.The effect: Under the right circumstances, these applications can be enough to deter a thief from running off with your laptop. Neither application is foolproof, however: Don’t consider these apps as anything more than deterrents.Spoof Your Caller ID The problem: Before caller ID became standard on every phone, making an anonymous call meant little more than dialing the number. Today it’s easy to screen calls and send unknown numbers to voicemail. If you’re looking to make an old-fashioned prank call (heavy breathing optional) or simply surprise the person you’re calling, the ubiquity of caller ID has ruined the fun.The trick: Several caller ID spoofing services are available online that not only hide your number from the recipient’s caller ID, they also make the call appear to be coming from another phone number altogether. Even better, you decide what number you want to show up when you call. I tested this trick at SpoofCard, one of many such services. Just give SpoofCard your number, the number you want to call, and the number you want to show up in the caller ID; SpoofCard takes care of rest.The effect: SpoofCard was very easy to use, and it did exactly what it advertised. In my test, that meant spoofing with Tommy Tu-Tone’s 867-5309 without a hitch. SpoofCard offers free trial calls, which is probably enough for most users.Did They Read Your E-Mail? When?The problem: You send out an important e-mail message reminding your coworker to bring copies of your PowerPoint presentation to the big meeting. You get there, and he doesn’t have them. His excuse: He never got your e-mail. Possible, but questionable; anyway, you want to know for sure.The trick: Send messages you want to monitor through DidTheyReadIt. The Web site embeds a tiny image in each e-mail it sends. When the e-mail is opened, the recipient’s e-mail client, in many cases, will automatically send a request for the embedded image; when that request is made, DidTheyRead then knows that the e-mail was indeed opened, when it was opened, and for how long it was open.The effect: If you really need to be sure that someone received a particular message, DidTheyReadIt works as advertised. The only catch: If the recipient’s e-mail client doesn’t automatically download embedded images, DidTheyReadIt’s tracking mechanism may not work.Create a Web-Streaming SpycamThe problem: You want to keep a closer eye on your kids when you’re away without having to buy a nanny cam.The trick: The free application WebcamXP streams video from your Webcam over the Internet so you can keep an eye on your home from anywhere. If you have a Webcam with a tracking motor, WebcamXP can even control the pan and tilt of the camera over the Internet, giving you full control over what you’re seeing.The effect: The application works very well, though the free version supports just one video source. Upgrading to one of the shareware versions gives you motion detection, and the ability to hook up and view feeds from multiple Webcams.

Google Drive changes Google One and price drops

first_imgGoogle Drive changes: Google One and price drops by Martin Brinkmann on May 15, 2018 in Google – Last Update: August 16, 2018 – 5 commentsGoogle unveiled Google One, an upgrade for the company’s paid consumer storage plans, yesterday. Google One provides paying Google customers with access to storage plans ranging from 100 Gigabytes to 30 Terabyte, access to experts, family sharing, and other benefits such as Google Play credit or hotel discounts on Google Search.Google One is being rolled out right now to consumers worldwide. Google announced a new storage plan and a price drop for another plan yesterday as well.Nothing changes for the majority of storage plans available; options start at $1.99 for 100 Gigabytes of storage and the price of high end plans that give customers access to 10, 20 or 30 Terabyte of storage does not change either.Google OneThe price of the 2 Terabyte plan, however, drops from $19.99 per month to $9.99, and it replaces the 1 Terabyte plan that won’t be offered anymore.Lastly, customers who need more than 100 Gigabytes of space but way less than 2 Terabyte can subscribe to the new 200 Gigabyte plan for $2.99 per month. Existing 1 Terabyte customers will be upgraded to the new 2 Terabyte plan for $9.99 per month automatically by Google, and all other users will be upgraded to Google One as well in the coming months. The rollout starts in the United States and will be expanded globally afterward.While most customers won’t notice changes to their storage quota, as only 1 Terabyte customers get upgraded to 2 Terabytes of storage, Google revealed that Google One will provide paying customers with additional benefits.Customers will receive an email message that informs them about the change and the benefits of the new Google One service.Google One offers three additional benefits that Google Drive plans did not offer until now:Access to Google experts for customer support.Family sharing to manage up to five family members under a single plan.ExtrasCustomers gain “access to Google experts” according to Google.People who use a lot of storage tend to use a lot of other Google products, too. So with Google One you get one-tap access to experts for help with our consumer products and services.It is the first time that Google Drive customers get direct access to customer support agents. The Verge reports that customers get access to live chat support but Google’s announcement does not confirm that.Paid storage plans may be shared with up to five family members, a much requested feature according to Google. Paying subscribers can add up to five family members to a plan to share it within the family.Each family member gets private storage that is separate from each other.ComparisonGoogle customers get 2 Terabyte of online storage for $9.99 per month when they are moved to the new Google One plan. They get customer support access, family sharing, and some other benefits next to that.Microsoft customers can subscribe to Office 365 Personal for $69.99 per year if they subscribe directly on the Office site, and for less if they purchase the plan elsewhere.The $69.99 is good for 1 Terabyte of storage and one user, and includes access to Microsoft Office, customer support via chat or phone, and 60 minutes of Skype per month.Apple customers may upgrade the 5 Gigabytes of free storage that they get to 50 Gigabyte, 200 Gigabyte or 2 Terabyte plans for $0.99, $2.99, or $9.99 respectively. Apple iCloud customers may share plans with family members.SummaryArticle NameGoogle Drive changes: Google One and price dropsDescriptionGoogle One provides paying Google customers with access to storage plans ranging from 100 Gigabytes to 30 Terabyte, access to experts, family sharing, and other benefits such as Google Play credit or hotel discounts on Google Search.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Exclusive Vue cinema to screen documentary advocating gay cure therapy

first_imgeTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Conversion therapy is already illegal in Switzerland, Taiwan, two Canadian provinces, nine US states, and the Australian state of Victoria. Malta became the first EU country to introduce a ban on conversion therapy in 2016.However, in the UK the government has dismissed calls to explicitly ban the practise.Humanists UK Director of Public Affairs and Policy Richy Thompson said: “‘The association between so-called ‘conversion therapy’ and negative mental health outcomes for gay and bisexual people is strong.“These are harmful religious ‘therapies’ rooted in homophobia, not science. The Government has a duty to end these harmful practices once and for all.“Young people struggling with their sexuality deserve support to live confident, authentic lives without being made to feel shame due to outdated religious views about sin and sexuality.”Meddisavowinges in the UK including the NHS have signed a Memorandum of Understanding disvowing all attempts to ‘change’ sexual orientation.However, due the lack of a law regulating the practise it is still able to continue legally in the UK, practised primarily by fringe religious groups and unregulated quacks.Last month, a video promoting gay ‘cure’ therapy to young people received more than 1.5 million views.The therapy defies the consensus reached by medical, psychological and therapeutic organisations across the world.Experts overwhelmingly agree that attempts to cure sexuality are futile, misguided, and often actually harmful.Attempts to force teens to repress their sexuality has been linked to depression, self-harm and even suicide.The UK’s former Minister for Women and Equalities, Nicky Morgan, previously called for a ban on ‘conversion therapy’.Speaking at the 2015 PinkNews Awards, she said: “Let me be clear: gay cure therapies have no place in our countries and we must stamp them out.”But last month the Department of Health insisted “the Government does not believe creating a criminal offence is the right way forward”.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… The film’s creators claim it features 15 people who have “come out of homosexual practises” thanks to therapy or religion – and challenges the “myth… that people are born gay”.Nearly every medical body in the world has disavowed gay cure therapy.But PinkNews can reveal that the screening is set to take place at the Vue Piccadilly Circus cinema in London on Thursday evening.The group appears to have privately hired a cinema screen for the private event.PinkNews has contacted Vue reps for comment but did not immediately get a response.Email sent to PinkNewsRelated: All the medical organisations who think gay cure therapy is bulls**tA release from the Core Issues Trust says: “Voices of the Silenced: Experts, Evidences and Ideologies, was filmed over two years in eight countries.“It promotes the stories of fifteen individuals coming out of homosexual practices. With the support of a range of international and UK experts specialising in the care of this marginalised population group, Voices of the Silenced challenges the closedown on debate about the value of therapeutic support undertaken in ways that are respectful of client goals and individual rights to change.“Exposing the largely unexamined role of sexual politics and the ideological basis of renewed calls for banning therapies in some western nations, the film examines the ancient ideologies of sexuality in the Greco-Roman world, the historical influence of sexual ethics from the Judeo-Christian world and the re-emergence of pansexual humanist values in the modern era.“The film is released by Core Issues Trust, the UK’s only registered charity offering therapeutic support for those with unwanted homosexual feelings, in association with a range of like-minded groups from other parts of the world.“It features almost 40 participants from English, German, Hungarian and Norwegian language groups. The English film will shortly be released for online download and in DVD format with closed or open subtitling in German, Slovakian, Russian, Polish, Italian, Mandarin, Korean, Hungarian, French, Spanish, Ukrainian, and Arabic.”In response to the screening, Humanists UK called on ministers to ban gay ‘cure’ therapy in UK.Many social media users have expressed outrage at the proposed screening.

On eve of Kerry visit China chides US over South China Sea

first_img“The Cold-War mentality, which is prone to the use of force to resolve disputes, is already outdated,” Cui said.It’s not clear whether or when the U.S. might begin sending planes and ships within the 12 nautical mile (22.2-kilometer) territorial limit surrounding China’s island claims — or how exactly Beijing might respond.However, the littoral combat ship USS Fort Worth and its MH-60R Seahawk helicopter conducted patrols in seas and airspace near the Spratlys this month, a first for a ship of that class, the Navy said in a report on its website.During the patrols, the ship encountered several Chinese navy warships and communicated with them using an agreed set of protocols to avoid misunderstandings, it said.The Fort Worth’s encounters with Chinese ships “continue to be professional,” commanding officer Cmdr. Matt Kawas was quoted as saying.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Top Stories Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Comments   Share   Sponsored Stories BEIJING (AP) — China on Friday reaffirmed that it will defend its territorial claims in the South China Sea, on the eve of a visit to Beijing by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who is expected to raise America’s objections to Beijing’s actions.Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters China won’t remain passive if its interests come under attack.“I would like to stress again that China’s determination to defend national sovereignty and its legitimate rights and interests is unswerving,” Hua said. “We will adopt stern measures to counter any acts that will pose provocations and threats against China.” Four benefits of having a wireless security system New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Beijing this week responded angrily to a Wall Street Journal report which cited anonymous U.S. officials saying that Washington is considering sending military ships and planes to challenge Chinese claims to islands it is building in the South China Sea.China has rattled the region with its assertive claims in the South China Sea, where islands and reefs are contested by China and five other Asian governments. China has reclaimed about 800 hectares (2,000 acres) of dry land in the Spratly island groups since 2014 that could be used as airstrips or for military purposes, according to U.S. officials.American officials say Kerry will carry a message that China’s large-scale land reclamation and general behavior in the South China Sea will hurt China’s image and foreign relations, including with the U.S.His visit on Saturday will also set the stage for annual U.S.-China economic and strategic talks this summer and a trip to the U.S. by Chinese President Xi Jinping in the fall.Also Friday, state broadcaster CCTV ran an interview with China’s ambassador to the U.S., Cui Tiankai, in which he lashed out what he described as Washington’s hypocrisy and confrontational attitude. China says the U.S. ignores improvements it says other claimants are also making on their island holdings.

talking about the campaign "I do not recall any discussions with the Russian ambassador or any other representative of the Russian government regarding the political campaign on these occasions or any other occasion" At his confirmation hearing in January Senator Al Franken had asked Sessions what he would do as attorney general if there was any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government during the course of the campaign the daily said Sessions responded: "I’m not aware of any of those activities I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I didn’t have — did not have communications with the Russians and I’m unable to comment on it" "My answer was correct" Sessions wrote in his letter to Congress "As I noted in my public statement on 2 March I was surprised by the allegations in the question which I had not heard before I answered the question which asked about a ‘continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump’s surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government’ honestly I did not mention communications I had had with the Russian ambassador over the years because the question did not ask about them" Sessions recused himself last week from any investigation of Russian contacts related to the presidential campaign after his meetings with the Russian ambassador were disclosed CNN reported In Monday’s letter he also said his recusal covers investigations of "Russian contacts with the Trump transition team and administration" Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley thanked Sessions for his letter saying it helped to "clear up confusion" "I appreciate Attorney General Sessions’ quick action to clear up confusion about his statement and I look forward to
