UN agency spotlights plight of pregnant women in Pakistani flood zone

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) warned today that thousands of flood-affected pregnant women face the risk of death and disability unless relief efforts can be scaled up quickly to meet their needs.Nearly 500,000 women in the flood-affected zone are pregnant, according to UNFPA estimates. Every day, some 1,700 go into labour and more than 250 experience complications that call for life-saving medical intervention.Most of those made homeless by the floods still lack access to proper health services, including skilled delivery assistance, according to a press release issued today.UNFPA cited the case of Noor Bano, 32, to illustrate the plight of pregnant women in Pakistan. She was anaemic and exhausted when her labour pains started on Sunday. Her flight from the flood had included a three-hour trek carrying two small children and two days sheltering beneath a bridge without food or water.She ended up in a camp in Sukkur visited regularly by a UNFPA-supported medical team. The team gave Ms. Bano a prenatal exam and left a telephone number. Ms. Bano’s mother-in-law called, and community midwife Farzana Sarki came quickly to help Ms. Bano deliver her sixth baby in the family’s tent.It was Ms. Sarki’s 18th delivery in two weeks. Since early August, UNFPA has deployed obstetricians and midwives in 23 mobile teams and 14 health centres in flood-affected areas. They have attended 1,500 births, treated 300 women after suffering miscarriages, and referred nearly 200 mothers to hospitals for delivery by caesarean section.Shahnaz Seelro, Ms. Bano’s neighbour in the camp, gave birth before reaching the camp – in the trailer of a truck hired to carry her family away from the flood. With no skilled birth attendant, her life would have been at risk had anything gone wrong.Maternal mortality is high in Pakistan in even normal times, according to UNFPA. Some 320 women die for every 100,000 live births, according to UN figures. Trauma, malnutrition and poor hygiene make flood survivors more vulnerable.As part of the coordinated humanitarian response to Pakistan’s emergency, UNFPA is focusing on safe delivery and other reproductive health concerns. It is helping to assess needs for basic services as the floods continue to displace people, and for restoring damaged health centres and hospitals after waters recede.“We urgently need to scale up reproductive health care to the flood victims,” said Naseer Nizamani, UNFPA’s deputy representative in Pakistan. “The number of women who still lack assistance is enormous.”Besides supporting health authorities in flood-affected provinces, UNFPA is conducting reproductive health training and offering critical supplies to local groups providing health care. 7 September 2010The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) warned today that thousands of flood-affected pregnant women face the risk of death and disability unless relief efforts can be scaled up quickly to meet their needs. read more

What was said about top court rulings on digenous consultations

OTTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada ruled Wednesday that the National Energy Board can fulfil the Crown’s duty to consult Indigenous communities about development projects but it must be done properly. In decisions on two separate cases, the high court decided the NEB had properly consulted when reviewing a plan to expand an Enbridge pipeline between Ontario and Quebec, but that it had failed to do so when it approved seismic testing in Baffin Bay and Davis Straight.Here’s some of the reaction to the rulings:“I’m thinking about the people in Clyde River today. They can finally breathe a sigh of relief and perhaps even dance a celebratory jig and communities across Baffin island can rest assured that those seismic companies will not blast through their waters, they will not threaten their food sovereignty and steamroll unapologetically over their rights.” — Farrah Khan, arctic campaigner, Greenpeace Canada, which aided Clyde River in its legal battle against the seismic testing.——“It represents a victory not only for this community and its future but a significant and notable step forward in bringing Canadian law into line with important international human rights standards. For far too long now governments in Canada across the country and their regulatory bodies have treated consultation with Indigenous peoples as a mere formality.” — Alex Neve, secretary general of Amnesty International Canada.——“The government cannot continue to pay lip service to reconciliation and Indigenous rights while continuing to ignore the duty to consult and accommodate. It is insulting to see this government refuse, time after time, to walk the walk. They must immediately fix this broken process.” — NDP Indigenous and Northern Affairs Critic Romeo Saganash.——“That will certainly make it much more difficult in the future for the NEB to green light projects like this one, projects that have the potential to prove catastrophic for the Inuit people. Yeah, they can come back again and try again. We’ll be ready and we’ll be waiting.” — Clyde River lawyer Nader Hasan.——“The Chiefs of Ontario will continue to support the Chippewas of the Thames, and all other communities who are facing unwanted potential development on their lands. The fossil fuel industry will disappear over the next several decades, to be replaced by green energy. The real issue here is that we must preserve our lands and waters for future generations. This is the way forward in order to reverse climate change and the continued contamination of our lands, air and water. Our Peoples will continue the fight to save our planet for all our children.” Chiefs of Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day. read more

Ecopassages in dispute

A battle could be brewing over responsibility for the eco-passages and wildlife fencing installed in recent years along the Long Point Causeway.The Long Point World Biosphere Reserve Foundation, in partnership with other conservation groups, raised $2.5 million over several years for the installation of the infrastructure along the 3.5-kilometre causeway.The three culverts, nine wildlife tunnels and fencing is credited with reducing reptile mortality on the causeway, which separates the Big Creek Marsh from Long Point Bay.The biosphere foundation is weighing an appeal to the Ministry of the Environment if Norfolk County refuses to accept responsibility.“We have to decide whether we need to take it up with the minister,” Rick Levick, president of the foundation, said Tuesday.“It’s not our preferred option. We don’t want to delay the project. The road is a mess. The bridge is a mess.”Levick and others raised the money for the causeway infrastructure, which was installed in phases, over several years.At the outset, former public works general manager Eric D’Hondt was careful to link responsibility for the care and upkeep of the eco-passages, culvert and fencing to the promoters of the Long Point Causeway Improvement Project in any agreement they entered with the county.With the causeway set to be rebuilt, Levick says the time has come for Norfolk to assume responsibility for infrastructure it is about to disturb.Levick says the private-sector entities that raised money for the causeway may’ve saved Norfolk millions of dollars. Levick said the province very easily could have ordered the county to undertake this work itself due to the high mortality rate of turtles, snakes and other species-at-risk due to traffic on the causeway between Port Rowan and Long Point.Port Rowan Coun. Tom Masschaele is sympathetic to these arguments. He has tabled a motion for an upcoming meeting calling on Norfolk to assume responsibility for this infrastructure.Levick’s comments came after a presentation by Henry Huotari, a program director with the environmental consulting firm Parsons in London. Parsons recently completed an environmental assessment regarding the $12-million causeway rebuild.Key findings of the Parsons’ report include:Parsons is discouraging the construction of a four-kilometre multi-use pathway offset from the road allowance on the west side of the causeway. Huotari said this would require a lengthy, complicated negotiation for land with the Canadian Wildlife Service that could delay the causeway rebuild. Parsons estimates that the causeway project will begin in the spring of 2020. The road itself should be rebuilt by late fall of next year. Replacement of the failing bridge over the causeway near George Lane would also begin in 2020 but not be finished until sometime in 2021. Huotari gave assurances that traffic in and out of Long Point will continue for the duration of the project. This includes the access and egress of heavy vehicles, RVs, boats and trailers and the like. “We simply cannot hold up an ambulance or a fire truck,” Huotari said. Norfolk will consider the possibility of removing the old willow trees on either side of the causeway later this year. If the county decides to get this work out of the way early, it will have to wait till late summer or in the fall when birds are finished nesting. MSonnenberg@postmedia.com read more

Trolex on mitigating rock falls in underground mining

first_imgWhile mining safety has improved significantly, operators are still subjected to hazardous conditions. Heavy loads, noise, chemical leakage, dust exposure, floods, and electrocution are just some of the problems they face. Modern technology does however mitigate all of these risks, ensuring operator and environment safety. But one risk that is sometimes overlooked, is rock fall. Around 30% of accidents and fatalities in underground mines occur as a result of rockfall, according to Trolex, and most of these incidents are close to mine entrances or near the mining operation.“Yet, with the technology and tools available, mitigating and controlling rock fall is entirely possible. There are a variety of solutions that exist that enable mine-wide monitoring and environment analysis, capable of issuing early warnings and identifying structural damage and risks before they become a problem. To prevent rock fall and avalanches, there are a numerous techniques, tools and solutions that can be used.” Depending on the operation, multiple options may be deployed, but Trolex points out that the solutions fall into one of the two methods outlined below:Active rock fall mitigation is more preventative, stopping the rock fall events from ever occurring. It utilises methods such as rock bolting, shotcrete, buttress, drainage and stabilisation at the initiation zone – i.e. where the rock fall would occur. Passive rock fall mitigation refers to when a rock fall still occurs, but its impact is mitigated and controlled as much as possible.Active methods include rerouting paths, building tunnels or elevating structures above the point of danger. Other measures include stabilising the active area by removing hazardous materials, draining the area of water to prevent erosion, reinforcing rock walls with rock bolts and shotcrete, and buttress.Passive methods include drape nets and bolts that are inserted into predrilled holes and bonded into place. These nets typically hold rock fall in place or catch rock fall by creating a hanging curtain. Passive methods are predominantly used outside mines where work is being conducted externally, preventing rock fall from falling on important infrastructure or operators below.Alongside the methods outlined above, there are tools and solutions that can assist with environment monitoring and early warning of potential rock fall scenarios:Extensometers and telltales: Low cost but highly accurate monitoring tools. Mechanical wire extensometers can provide you with visual warnings and feed into a central command system, providing you with real-time analysis of strata movement and potential hazards in the mine. Monitor the deformation of rock mass around an excavation with ease, either locally or remotely. Instrumented rockbolts: Designed to measure strains close to the skin of underground openings and areas of mining operations. By placing rockbolts close together, strain gradients can be analysed and unstable ground detected, ensuring the majority of rockfall incidents are avoided. Rockbolts can be placed in an array across an excavation or area to ensure accurate reporting of rock movement and analysis of the surrounding environment.center_img Borehole inspection cameras and tunnel monitoring devices: In mining and industrial operations, the structural integrity of a tunnel or borehole, no matter how large or small, is key. Fractures in the surrounding rock face that go unnoticed could result in unexpected rock fall and presents potential danger to operators on the ground. With borehole inspection cameras and tunnel monitoring devices operators can use remote cameras to investigate boreholes and tunnels from absolute safety, giving them insight into the current state of the mine.“At Trolex, we deliver the world’s most advanced mining safety and efficiency technology, including extensometers, sensors, cameras, telltales and instrumented rockbolts. Our full array of strata control and monitoring instruments help you to manage your structural environment in potentially hazardous locations – and will help you to drastically improve operational productivity by up to 40% and protect your personnel. It’s important that both mine and operation-wide rock fall mitigation is active and passive. There will of course, be areas on the rock face where one method would be more suitable than the other, but operator safety must always come first. A combination of the two would not only ensure operator safety and reduce fatalities, but also reduce downtime as a result of rock fall incidents.”last_img read more

Java malware sets its sights on your Minecraft passwords

first_imgThe fine folks at Intego have spotted one of the most vile pieces of Java malware ever discovered: an app that masquerades as a Minecraft hack tool that is actually designed to steal your precious login credentials.It’s pretty similar to the the fake Runescape gold cheat app that landed a Canadian youth in hot water with police last month. This time, however, the shifty bugger behind the malicious code has built it using Java — making it a cross-platform threat. Because Minecraft requires Java to run, there’s no question that the cheat tool will fire up on a victim’s computer, too.The tool baits users with buttons that claim to perform god-like actions on servers, from granting OP permissions to banning other users. In the background, however, the real action is taking place. The username and password for the account that last logged in are swiped and securely emailed to a Hotmail inbox.This piece of malware is quite a bit more sophisticated, too. It’s made of multiple Java applets that are hidden after being dropped onto a compromised system. The tool is also capable of updating and deleting its components (presumably after receiving remote commands), so additional malicious activities could be carried out down the road. That could mean everything from more widespread password stealing to browser hijacking.For the love of Steve, people, keep Minecraft pure. Keep playing honestly, and avoid the urge to exact vengeance upon your griefers by downloading anything that claims to give you godlike abilities on a server. You’re just asking for trouble.Consider this warning the “Ssssssss…” before the boom.last_img read more

Panchayat polls Nomination filing shows signs of CPM exodus to BJP

first_imgKolkata: The flight of CPI-M supporters to BJP is evident from the pattern that has been followed in filing nomination of candidates in the three-tier Panchayat election in Bankura.Bankura was a stronghold of CPI-M since Independence. The villages were under control of the party and the party used to lead the Panchayat election. From 1978, when the Panchayat election was held in Bengal for the first time, the Opposition was not allowed to file nomination. The CPI-M had unleashed a reign of terror and this continued till 2003. In 2008, Trinamool Congress won the Zilla Parishad in East Midnapore and South 24-Parganas. It was for the first time that the erosion of CPI-M’s vote bank had become evident. But because of the party’s terror, Trinamool Congress had fielded only 35,000 candidates for 58,000 seats in 2008. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsIn the 46 member Zilla Parishad, CPI-M has fielded only 14 candidates, followed by Congress, which had fielded only 9 candidates. BJP has fielded 18 candidates, while Trinamool Congress has fielded 65 candidates. In Panchayat Samity there are 535 seats. Of these seats, CPI-M and Congress have fielded 119 and 6 candidates respectively, while BJP has fielded 189 candidates. Trinamool Congress has fielded 743 candidates in Panchayat Samity.In Gram Panchayat, there are 2,505 seats. BJP has fielded 859 candidates, while CPI-M and Congress have fielded 427 candidates and 18 candidates respectively. Trinamool Congress has nominated 2,991 candidates. Trinamool Congress has won 530 seats in Gram Panchayat, 175 seats in Panchayat Samity and 26 seats in Zilla Parishad uncontested. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedIn Bankura blocks I and II, Barjora, Bishnupur and Gangajalghanti, which were once CPI-M strongholds, the party has fielded 25, 0, 3, 6 and 1 candidates in Gram Panchayat. In these seats, BJP has fielded 81, 90, 3, and 69 candidates. In Panchayat Samity in Saltora, Sarenga, Simlipal and Sonamukhi blocks, CPI-M has fielded 0, 19, 21 and 0 candidates. In Zilla Parishad in Bankura Sadar, Bishnupur and Khatra seats, CPI-M has fielded 0, 0 and 14 candidates, while BJP has fielded 0, 0 and 18 candidates.Political experts said that until recently, BJP did not have any organisation in these rural belts. CPI-M supporters have joined BJP around six months ago. Mamata Banerjee has criticised CPI-M for its failure to boost up the rank and file of the party, who have shifted to the BJP camp.last_img read more

UK officer punished for passing nuclear secrets

first_img Sponsored Stories Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day “This was a classic story of betrayal,” said Mari Reid, with the Crown Prosecution Service’s counterterrorism unit. “Luckily for us, the men he met … were not Russian agents, but members of the British Security Service.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Lawyers said a series of personal blows preceded Devenney’s betrayal. Hehad been accused but cleared of rape, was depressed and had been drinking heavily.Prosecutor Mark Dennis also said Devenney had lost out on a promotion due to budget cuts and had been warned about excessive work absences.Three days before Devenney met the supposed Russian agents in January _ a meeting that came after he contacted the Russian Embassy _ he was warned he would be discharged if his behavior didn’t improve by April.It wasn’t immediately clear why the meeting was set up with the MI5 agents after Devenney called the Russian Embassy. Part of the court hearing was closed to protect national security.“The potential damage could have been considerable and could have harmed the safety and security of the United Kingdom,” Dennis said.Devenney, who had been in the navy for more than a decade, had been a communications engineer on nuclear sub HMS Vigilant when he contacted the Russian Embassy.He had security clearance to go into a room where secret encrypted material was kept in a safe though he wasn’t authorized to open the safe or have a code for it, Dennis said.Still, Devenney managed to take three pictures on his mobile phone that showed pieces of encrypted material which, if compromised, could have hampered the submarine’s covert deployment.

FHFAs Conservatorship of GSEs Has No Clear End Ratings Company Says

first_imgFHFA’s Conservatorship of GSEs Has No Clear End, Ratings Company Says Fitch Ratings affirmed that while Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac maintained a “Stable Rating Outlook” in April due to direct financial support from the U.S. government, the ratings company said it expected the controversial FHFA’s conservatorship of the two Enterprises would continue indefinitely.”Despite significant legislative efforts over reform of the housing market during the past year, the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) remain in conservatorship without a clear exit path,” Fitch said in its report. “The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has signaled that it will not interfere with Congress with respect to housing market reform.”The GSEs have been under FHFA conservatorship since September 2008, at which time they needed a combined bailout of $187.5 billion from taxpayers in order to stay afloat.A recent stress test administered by the FHFA determined that the two GSEs would need another taxpayer bailout, this time of up to $157 billion, when certain hypothetical adverse economic conditions were applied.The Fitch report examined the likelihood of the GSEs having to take another draw on Treasury, which is been an oft-discussed topic among housing market analysts in the last few months. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac returned to profitability in 2012, but those profits declined substantially from 2013 to 2014. Recent reports, including one from the FHFA Inspector General, have warned that the conservatorship will likely continue, but the profitability of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac might not.Since 2012, all GSE profits have been swept into Treasury. The GSEs each have a capital buffer of $1.8 billion, but it is required to be reduced by $600 million per year until it reaches zero by 2018. The Enterprises would require another draw on Treasury should their losses exceed their capital buffer.”Fitch believes the likelihood of additional draws from the U.S. Treasury will increase over time as the GSEs’ own capital reserve buffers are reduced to zero by 2018, particularly if economic conditions worsen materially or interest rates change rapidly,” Fitch wrote in the report.
