Human rights violations indicate repressive policy of Venezuelan authorities – UN report

“The policies pursued by the authorities in their response to the protests have been at the cost of Venezuelans’ rights and freedoms,” said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein in a news release issued today. The report notes that the generalized and systematic use of excessive force during demonstrations and the arbitrary detention of protestors and perceived political opponents indicate that these were not the acts of isolated officials. The report calls on the UN Human Rights Council to consider taking measures to prevent the human rights situation in Venezuela from worsening. Venezuela is currently a Council member.Mass street demonstrations began in the country in April. Tensions between the Government and the opposition reached a new high about a month ago, when President Nicolás Maduro convened elections for the so-called Constituent Assembly, which could replace the current legislative body, the National Assembly.The report indicates that of the 124 deaths linked to the protests being investigated by the Attorney General’s Office as of 31 July, the security forces were reportedly responsible for 46 and pro-Government armed groups, known as armed colectivos, for 27. Responsibility for the remaining 51 deaths has not yet been determined.According to reliable estimates from a local NGO, more than 5,000 people were detained since 1 April, with more than 1,000 reportedly still held as of 31 July. At least 609 civilians arrested in the context of protests were presented before military tribunals. The report calls on the Government to halt arbitrary detention and the use of military courts to try civilians. The report documents attacks against journalists and media workers by security forces that were apparently aimed at preventing them from covering demonstrations. “Demonstrators and journalists were labelled by high-level authorities as ‘enemies’ and ‘terrorists’ – words that did little to counter, and may even have contributed to, the climate of violence and polarization,” the High Commissioner said. Warning that amid continuing economic and social crises and rising political tensions, there is a grave risk the situation in Venezuela will deteriorate further, Mr. Zeid encouraged the Government to follow up on the recommendations made in the report and to use its findings as guidelines to seek truth and justice for the victims of human rights violations and abuses. read more

Britains used car market motors to record levels in Q3 as 21

Growth in the used car market continued in the third quarter of 2016 as UK buyers snapped up a record 2,148,050 vehicles, according to figures published by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. Demand grew 7.9% compared with Q3 2015.Consumer appetite for alternatively fuelled vehicles rose substantially – increasing 34.1% (21,543) compared with the same period in 2015 (16,059). The number of electric vehicles changing hands grew 94.1% between July and September as used buyers made the most of new fuel technology appearing in the used sector.Diesel and petrol fuelled vehicles also enjoyed growth – up 10.8% and 5.7% respectively – as used car buyers begin to benefit from the latest, low emission Euro 6 models now entering the used market in increasing numbers. Meanwhile, the trend towards smaller cars continued, with superminis the best-selling body type (33.8%) followed by family hatchbacks (27.4%) and saloons (13.4%).Buyers in the South East bought the most used cars in the quarter (14.9%), followed by those in the North West (10.6%) and the East (9.8%). Nationally, the Ford Fiesta retained its position as the most popular model, followed by the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Corsa, while cars aged 1-3 years old were most sought after, followed by those first registered 7-10 years ago. More than 60% of all used cars were bought in silver, black and blue, which remained top of buyers’ colour charts for a second year in a row.Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive said,Sustained growth in the used car sector is great news for consumers, who have never enjoyed so much choice – whether in brand, body style or fuel type and the range of finance packages on offer makes them more affordable than ever. It’s particularly promising to see the growing demand for electric vehicles filter into the used car market but to encourage greater take-up, a more widespread commitment to charging infrastructure is needed. More than 2.1 million used cars sold in Q3 – a record for the period July-September.Demand for alternatively fuelled vehicles climbs 34.1%, with sales of electric cars surging 94.1%.6.3 million used cars change hands in the year-to-date – up 7.9% on the same period in 2015.

Higgins calls on UK government to allow access to DublinMonaghan bombing files

first_imgHe added that asking people to ‘forget about the past and move on’ isn’t acceptable, and has been important in recent years due to improvements in the relationship between the United Kingdom and Ireland.“As we progress towards such a better future, we must not forget those who died, those who mourn them and those who were injured”.“A strategy of amnesia is simply not an option.”Read: “The crisis has exacted a huge toll on the Irish people” – President Higgins is critical of economic teaching > FILES HELD BY the British government on the 1974 Dublin and Monaghan bombings have again come under scrutiny as President Michael D Higgins called for a fresh investigation.Speaking yesterday at an meeting between families of those killed and injured in the bombings, that left 34 people dead, he said there are still “many unanswered questions” in relation to the attacks.During his speech he referenced two All-Party motions in 2008 and 2011 that called for access to be given to an “independent, international, judicial figure to all original documents held by the British Government relating to the atrocities”, with the aim of “assisting in the solution of these crimes”.“The fact that these motions were supported by all shades of political opinion in the Oireachtas is reflective of the moderation and reasonableness of the request being made”, President Higgins said.I share your hope, and that of the Irish Government, that the British Government can find a way to respond positively to this measured and constructive proposal.last_img read more

La firme à la pomme veut développer un streaming payant sur iTunes.Apple veut installer un modèle qui commence à faire recette sur le web. En plus du téléchargement de MP3, le géant américain veut proposer un service de streaming payant à ses internautes. L’entreprise veut contrer l’arrivée de son rival Spotify, déjà implanté en Europe et qui arrivera sur le nouveau continent avant la fin de l’année. Apple négocie actuellement avec les labels de musique pour mettre en place son système, mais la concurrence influe de façon importante sur le prix et la quantité de musique liés à chaque offre. On parle pour le moment de formules allant de sept à dix euros par mois alors que Spotify, qui a déjà bien entamé le marché des mobiles, propose de la musique illimitée sans publicité pour 9,99 euros par mois.Le 11 octobre 2010 à 12:15 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Selfdriving car crash comes amid debate about regulations

first_imgPHOENIX (AP) — A crash that caused an Uber self-driving SUV to flip onto its side in a Phoenix suburb serves as a stark reminder of the challenges surrounding autonomous vehicles in Arizona, a state that has gone all-in to entice the company by promising minimal government regulation.Friday night’s crash was blamed on the driver of an oncoming SUV that turned left in front of the Uber vehicle carrying two test drivers and no passengers. There were no serious injuries and the driver of the other car was cited for a moving violation. But images of Uber’s Volvo SUV rolled onto its side reverberated heavily on social media.Uber responded by briefly suspending its self-driving cars in its three testing locations — Arizona, San Francisco and Pittsburgh — as it investigated the accident.Uber’s self-driving car program is rolling out amid questions about how much government regulation it should endure on issues such as accidents, insurance and reporting instances in which the person behind the wheel in test cars needs to take control of the vehicle.The San Francisco-based startup endured a shaky December rollout in California — including running red lights — that culminated in a standoff between Uber and state regulators who wanted more transparency and reporting.Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey seized the opportunity and used lax regulations to entice Uber, which decided to ship more than a dozen SUVs to metro Phoenix.last_img read more

Could ModiMacron light up climate change talks

first_imgThe seas are rising relentlessly but not the world leaders. It’s hot even in the Arctic but decision-makers are cool. Young people are on the streets protesting against inaction, but heads of States huddled together in Osaka, Japan for the G20 meeting with facile jokes, embarrassing handshakes and posed smiles. The agenda for the 14th G20 Summit, crafted after series of ministerial meetings, was loaded with issues of trade and tariffs, free flow of digital data, 5G technology, terrorism, fugitive economic offenders, empowerment of women and slowdown of the global economy. Also Read – US judge dismissed criminal case against Jeffrey Epstein Advertise With Us Deliberation on the existential threat for planet Earth posed by climate crises barely found space left in between. By the end of the summit, a standard G20 Communique was released, that included a couple of sections of compromise text on climate change, among the 43 sections. On climate change, 19 of the G20 members (except the US) reaffirmed their commitment to the Paris Climate deal and its irreversibility. The US, as in the last G20 summit, “agreed to disagree” and reiterated their stance of quitting the Paris Climate Agreement. Also Read – Watch: Donald Trump says Florida faces absolute monster hurricane Advertise With Us Against the shocking news of wildfires, heat waves and flash floods that sent tremors on a planetary scale, climate issues were neither discussed nor prioritised the way it demanded. Growth-obsessed and trade-centred countries in the G20 remained focussed on economy and not on ecology which, in fact, dictates the economy. There was an exception: In the bilateral meeting between French President Emmanuel Macron and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, with a special appearance by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, both leaders committed to stronger action on the growing threat of climate change. Macron reportedly refused to sign the G-20 communique that did not highlight the climate crisis. Advertise With Us The 45th G7 summit (of seven advanced global economies) will be held on August 24-26 in the town of Biarritz in France, under the French presidency. After 2000, when it was realised that India and China would advance faster than expected, the G7 agreed to specially invite five more countries, including India and China, for their summit outreach. Macron, the host known as a climate saviour, is close to both India and China. He has put the fight against inequality on top of this year’s G7. Macron’s agenda recognises that the climate crisis has its indelible link with inequality which in turn has an axis to terrorism. Climate change hits vulnerable populations even harder, creating more inequality. “It heaps inequality on inequality and insecurity on insecurity,” says the G7 preparatory document. Climate Change is poised to be back as a major priority of the G7, apart from taxes and terrorism. The four environmental priorities in the agenda are: ♦ Scientific warnings and international action on biodiversity and climate ♦ Inclusive ecological transition ♦ Tangible solutions for the climate and biodiversity ♦ Finance for the preservation of biodiversity These priorities have emerged from scientific consensus in major reports of UN bodies. The first report that appalled the world was “The Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 degrees C”, by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It dealt with the scenario when the Earth’s average temperature increases by 1.5 degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial level. The message from that report was very clear, that the rise in temperature has to be limited to 1.5 degrees Celsius to avoid disastrous consequences to coastal areas, island countries and the economy in general. To avoid such damage, the world needs to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels by 45 per cent by 2030 (from the 2010 levels) and 100 per cent by 2050. That would need much more ambitious pledges by the countries than the promises they submitted for the Paris Climate Agreement. The report also provided a tragic observation that the global average temperature rise has already reached near 1 degree Celsius and, with the current speed of action, the additional rise of half a degree is just about 12 years away- within the lifetime of most of humanity living today. The second landmark report was by the Inter-governmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), the UN’s expert nature panel. It reported that the scale and speed of decline of ecosystems on which our economic growth depends is unprecedented in human history and is likely to continue for at least 50 years. Worse, the speed and scale would accelerate due to inaction on the climate crises. But now there is opportunity for introducing a correction factor. A Narendra Modi-Emmanuel Macron moment could happen during the G-7, at their proposed bilateral meeting, for which Macron has invited Modi. Both are known as bold decision-makers. Macron in 2018 declared a carbon-tax. In the 2019-20 Indian budget, the Modi government has declared an additional tax on petrol and diesel, equivalent to carbon-tax. Both Modi and Macron have launched and progressed on the International Solar Alliance that has the potential to be a game-changer in clean energy solutions to the climate crisis. While Macron has proposed a change in the G7 format and wider consultations with various stakeholders and year-long follow up meetings, Modi has revolutionised the narrative on the way the State leaders can engage in creating action-oriented awareness. He recently participated in an adventurous mission on Discovery Channel that attracted world attention to biodiversity. After his recent win in the world’s largest election, he visited the Himalayas to draw attention to the climate disaster visible in the receding snowlines of the Garhwal Himalayas. Macron is the most transformative French president since Francois Mitterrand. Professionally an investment banker, he has persuaded eight major asset managers to make climate-friendly investments of $15 trillion. He has coined the counter slogan of “Make the planet great again” in the face of US President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” election slogan. A Modi and Macron moment during the G7 outreach would surely prove to be correction factor to the unfortunate trend seen at the G20 summit.

HandsOn Samurai Shodown Revives Classic Blade Battles

first_imgStay on target No, Solid Snake Isn’t Coming to ‘Tekken’‘Street Fighter V’ and ‘Mortal Kombat 11’ Get Ne… When Street Fighter IV first launched a decade ago it kicked off a full-blown renaissance for classic 2D arcade fighting games. Beloved franchises like Marvel vs. Capcom and Killer Instinct returned. Stagnant series that technically never left like Tekken and Mortal Kombat got fresh blood. And new games like Skullgirls and BlazBlue left strong immediate impressions. We even got a great Dragon Ball game from this ongoing golden age.But one franchise that has yet to get its due is classic 2D weapons fighter Samurai Shodown from SNK. That’s about to change with the Samurai Shodown reboot coming later this year, and based on what I played it feels like the wait was worth it.I bring up Street Fighter IV also because that’s the most obvious reference point for the new Samurai Shodown. While it runs on the same Unreal Engine 4 as Street Fighter V, the art style’s heavy emphasis on medieval Japanese brushstrokes looks like a prettier take on Street Fighter IV’s aesthetic. The subtle watercolors and paper-like texture also reminded me of Capcom’s Okami. It’s so beautiful that it made the bloody violence of sword combat more shocking, which is the feeling the best samurai stories invoke.AdChoices广告<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Although it’s billed as a prequel to the original Samurai Shodown games, which have been on hiatus since basically right before Street Fighter IV’s release, this new game doesn’t have the cinematic story mode you’ve seen in recent fighting games like the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11. But the fighting itself tells its own kinds of stories. While not on the punishingly lethal level of Bushido Blade, Samurai Shodown recognizes that slashing another person with a sword should really do a lot of damage. So instead of elaborate multi-hit punch combos, if you just get a couple of good swings in there your opponent is finished. “Conclusion!”But if anything this opens up strategies instead of limiting them. There are only four attack buttons to worry about, three levels of slash strength and a kick button. Special moves rarely require fancy inputs. You need to focus more on out-thinking your opponent in the neutral game and running with it as soon as you have an advantage. Maintaining momentum is so important that even among equally skilled players one person can just take the whole game without getting hit if they get in the zone.The more unique mechanics are about bolstering the defensive options Samurai Shodown has spent less attention on in the past as well as giving players ways to stage dramatic comebacks and swing momentum in their favors. You can perform your complex super special move at any time but you can only do it once and landing it is tricky as combos can’t help you. You can dodge, perfectly parry projectiles, and even disarm your opponent leaving them with weak fists instead of a blade until they pick up back up. Build up the Rage Gauge to buff your attacks and pull off a different special move with power tied to your own dwindling health.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>The different characters also obviously change up your tactics. I played four characters from the initial 16-character roster, made up of 13 veterans and three newcomers. Haohmaru remains your basic Ryu type, even if Samurai Shodown encourages a fundamentally different playstyle compared to Street Fighter. Charlotte uses graceful fencing attacks while Earthquake overwhelms opponents with his sheer size, strength, and range with his chain. Galford fights with his good dog. And while he only appears in training mode, the referee is here, so hardcore retro SamSho fans can rest easy.Samurai Shodown’s fighting system is rock solid for competitive play. And SNK wants to cater to that community. Along with traditional online battles players can fight against asymmetrical A.I. facsimiles of their friends for better human training. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game launch in June 2019 so folks can practice for the game’s surprising EVO 2019 tournament appearance. And later it’s coming to PC and Nintendo Switch giving even more potential players the chance to sharpen their blades against each other. We can’t wait!last_img read more

Kuchenbecker – set out to make gunshots, knife slashings, and the feeling of blood dripping from the wounds more realistic than the other gadgets they had experienced provided.Using a first person shoot game (FPS Game: HALF LIFE 2 – Gun Shot Moment), the team set up their own game mode source code with a Source Engine wiki, complied it, and ran it through a Valve Steam platform. Then they designed their own map and game level and created their own 3-D first person shooter game.The TGVs are stuffed with solenoid actuators in the chest and on the front and back of the shoulders, and they are timed to go off when your character gets shot. They even get you where your character gets shot. Getting stabbed is no sweat either. The vibrating motors embedded around the vest simulate that experience. Oooh. Aaah.

Business travel booming in WA

first_imgBusiness tourism lead inbound visitor numbers in Western Australia in the December quarter last year, achieving a 42 percent increase in MICE travellers to 33,000 compared to the same period in 2009. According to Minister for Tourism Martin Ferguson, business travel is an important part of Western Australia’s tourism industry, with their highest average spending of up to AU$1284 on food, drink and accommodation.
