Security Council extends deadline for nominating judges to UNs Rwanda tribunal

The Security Council today decided to extend the deadline for nominating permanent judges to the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) after the number of candidates nominated for the posts fell short of the required minimum. The unanimous decision to push back the deadline from 23 September to 15 November was conveyed in a letter to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. He had earlier informed the Council that the number of nominations received was below the mandated minimum of 22 that the Council should transmit to the UN General Assembly for making the final selection.The Council created the ICTR, located in Arusha, Tanzania, in November 1994 to prosecute people responsible for genocide and other serious violations of international humanitarian law committed in the territory of Rwanda between 1 January 1994 and 31 December 1994. The Tribunal may also deal with the prosecution of Rwandan citizens responsible for genocide and other such violations of international law committed in neighbouring States over the same period. read more

12 Lady Eagles to Begin Conference Play

Photo by Jeff BarrettBy Calvin Jensen, USU Eastern Sports Information ContributorLooking to improve on their record-breaking season, the #12 USU Eastern women’s volleyball team did just that; sweeping the competition Friday in Nebraska.The Lady Eagles defeated Sheridan College in the first contest of the two-day tournament. After a long drive and a short night, the Eagles came out with intensity and didn’t slow down in their sweep against the Generals. Each set played out like clockwork with scores of 25-16, 25-13 and 25-16. Outside hitter Kiara Richardson led the team, adding to her #1 position in the nation with 15 kills. Ashlee McUne fed the offense with 47 assists and three aces. Defensively, Alyssa Simmons helped protect the net with five blocks and libero Avery Best stayed on the move with 21 digs.“As a coach, going into the fifth tournament weekend, you get a little nervous about the team’s energy and endurance. We’ve played over 70 sets in five different states so far this season but these players are doing what it takes to be ready for every game; these two competitions were no different. With only a few days at home between tournaments, the team is focused and determined in practice. Many of them are putting time in outside of our daily team practice. Two hours a day is not enough to out-perform the competition and these players understand that,” said head coach Danielle Jensen.Later in the day, the Lady Eagles didn’t skip a beat as their offense was relentless in the first two sets against Trinidad State College. In the third set, the defense came up big for USU Eastern as the Trojans began to gain momentum halfway through the set. That momentum deteriorated quickly thanks to the scrappy, back row defenders who have played a key role in the team’s success this year. The final scores of this matchup were 25-19, 25-12 and 25-19. USU Eastern volleyball has crushed the stats nationally in defense and offense. This game justified their top ranking statistically. Opposite hitter Sunny Perry led in kills with 12. Kahea Nihipali had five blocks on the game with setter McUne adding to her #1 spot nationally with 47 assists. Best had another big showing defensively with 21 digs.When asked about the win, defensive specialist Kennedy Poulton said, “We played really well as one. Our energy, grit and effort came together at the right moment to take a win. We went out ready to play and we left it all out on the court. Our game and this program is based on playing as a family and that really contributed today and brought us two good wins.”After two impressive sweeps on Friday, the USU Eastern volleyball team traveled across state lines to Torrington, Wyo. to complete their final two matches of non-conference play. Saturday did not play out like games past. The Lady Eagles were defeated in both contests of the day by Western Wyoming and Eastern Wyoming Community Colleges.“We would have liked to have had a different outcome as we finished non-conference play but it is what it is. After competing in so many games over a short period of time, I knew that a day like this was possible. We know who we are as a team and the games played today were definitely not us. I could immediately see the fatigue affecting the entire team as we started. They were exhausted both mentally and physically and just couldn’t compete at the level they have over the past five weeks. There are things we learn in every game and we will be back in the gym breaking down those areas we need to improve on. I am so proud of our team and what they have accomplished so far this season,” said Jensen.With a record breaking tournament season behind them, the USU Eastern women’s volleyball team will look to improve on their 19-5 record as they begin SWAC play. This Thursday, they will travel to #13 Salt Lake Community College to take on the Bruins at 7 p.m. On Saturday, they will look for a win against defending national champions College of Southern Idaho at 1 p.m..Both of these conference matchups can be viewed live on the Scenic West Athletic Conference Digital Network or on the USU Eastern Women’s Volleyball Facebook page. read more

Mens Hockey Goaltending takes center stage early in Ohio States season

Ohio State then-freshman goaltender Tommy Nappier covers up a puck during Ohio State’s 4-0 win against Wisconsin on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018. Credit: Nick Hudak | For The LanternGoaltending can make or break a season. Teams with elite athletes between the pipes often find themselves competing for a championship at the end of the year.Ohio State is no exception.Redshirt senior goaltender Sean Romeo was one of the crutches that the Buckeyes relied on during their Frozen Four run last season. He allowed just over two goals per game and had a save percentage of .927, No. 3 in the Big Ten and No 9 in the country, starting 37 of the 41 games Ohio State played.This season, however, has been a different story for Romeo. He’s only started in half of the Buckeyes’ matchups and in his first three games, he allowed 11 goals, saving 81.2 percent of shots sent his way.Though Romeo has improved as of late, pitching three straight shutouts against Colgate, Notre Dame and Wisconsin, a program record, his struggles early in the season paved the way for sophomore Tommy Nappier to step into the spotlight for Ohio State.In the seven games Nappier has appeared in, including six starts, he has only allowed eight goals and holds the best save percentage in the nation at .958, along with two shutouts. While most teams generally put one guy in net for most of their season, associate head coach Steve Miller is familiar with having two dependable players in goal.“I go back to some of our great Denver teams. We were fortunate at times to have two really good guys who push each other, who challenge each other every day in practice,” Miller said. “You know you got to come and got to be sharp every day. You know there’s another guy there doing the same thing who’s playing at a high level, so I think it’s a real big positive for the guys.”Beyond the obvious benefits of having two dependable goaltenders, such as having a backup in case the starter goes down, it means less wear and tear on each goalie as the season progresses.“I feel more rested,” Romeo said. “You know, it’s a lot easier to play one game than two games.”A duo of rested goalies can pay dividends down the stretch for Ohio State come tournament time when other teams don’t have the same depth in net. Splitting starts has already led to a record-setting stretch for Ohio State between the pipes.The lone goal given up by Nappier against Wisconsin broke a three-game shutout streak. Ohio State has only given up three goals and has four shutouts in its past six games. The Buckeyes are also the only team in the nation that has multiple goaltenders with at least two shutouts, leading the NCAA with five shutouts..After Romeo started in almost every game for Ohio State last season, it would be understandable for him to be disappointed after getting his playing time cut in half. But he has taken his reduced playing time in stride and is nothing but supportive of his goaltending counterpart. “I enjoy going to the rink every day, seeing [Nappier],” Romeo said. “Obviously, we’re competing against each other, but there’s nothing bad. When he’s in I’m cheering for him, I think when I’m in he’s cheering for me, I hope so.” Nappier shared Romeo’s sentiments, saying that Romeo helps to make him better every day.Moving forward, there has been no indication from the coaching staff that these plans will change. Barring one goaltender’s play declining as the season goes on, it is expected that they will continue to split starts. Decisions may change, however, as Ohio State nears the Big Ten and NCAA Tournaments in the spring. In high-stakes situations, they will have to decide whether to stick with both their hot hands or go with the veteran leadership that Romeo would bring to a squad trying to return to the Frozen Four. read more

Balla Balla private iron ore rail line set to go ahead

first_imgThe Board of Rutila Resources has announced that after extensive consultation with the State Government of Western Australia, the company has received approval from the Premier of Western Australia and Minister for State Development, The Hon Colin Barnett MLA, to negotiate on behalf of the Balla Balla Joint Venture a State Agreement. Subject to the Balla Balla Joint Venture receiving a State Agreement, this will enable the construction of a private railway line to service potential iron ore mines in the Pilbara and deliver ore through the proposed Balla Balla port.The company submitted a comprehensive Project Definition Document (PDD) to the Department of State Development (DSD) in September 2014. There remain certain outstanding commercial issues from DSD’s review of the PDD that need to be fully resolved before the proposed State Agreement can be submitted to the parliamentary process. Rutila says it is confident that all remaining issues can be resolved in a timely manner. The company “will commence liaising with the Department immediately to negotiate the State Agreement.”The project will be developed as a State significant project under the Governments Lead Agency guidelines through the DSD. The company and its joint venture partner, Todd Corporation, view this as a significant milestone on the pathway to becoming a low cost iron ore exporter from the Pilbara.FEED is underway, with the appointment of Coffey International which is currently completing geotechnical and hydrological field studies relating to rail and port, BAM Clough for the jetty design, and AECOM which has commenced the rail design. Access and approvals are also significantly advanced with the granting of a section 91 access licence in December 2014. Negotiations with Native Title holders, pastoralists and mining tenement holders are largely complete.Rutila’s Executive Chairman Nicholas Curtis commented: “We are pleased with the outcome of the review by the Department of State Development and ongoing consultation with the Western Australian Government Agencies and look forward to working with the department to advance the project. We recognise that in the current iron ore pricing environment the development of greenfield iron ore projects is challenging, however given the robust economics of this project, notably the low capital intensity,we are confident the project will generate sufficient returns to allow the development of the project.” Todd Corporation’s CEO Jon Young noted: “The Todd Corporation is pleased to receive the support of the Western Australian Premier, The Hon Colin Barnett MLA, in inviting the Joint Venture to negotiate a State Agreement.”last_img read more

NI talks with US diplomat Haass to resume today

first_imgUS DIPLOMAT RICHARD Haass will return to Northern Ireland today after deciding that a cross-party deal on parades, flags and the past can be sealed by midnight on New Year’s Eve.He took to Twitter in recent days to say that he would be returning to Belfast, last night adding that the Belfast talks “merited support”.TalksThe all-party talks are believed to start at 2.30pm today, with one to one discussions with Haass and O’Sullivan scheduled for Sunday.Haass and O’Sullivan left Northern Ireland on Christmas Eve after failing to reach an agreement. Haass had indicated that he would return this weekend if he felt that a deal was still possible.Today it is expected to hand over draft proposals, the fourth set he has produced to representatives of the the North’s five major parties.Yesterday, Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams feels that a deal can be struck by the Tuesday deadline, while during the week Táinaiste Eamon Gilmore said an agreement on the issues was “essential”.Writing in the Belfast Telegraph yesterday, Haass said that “compromise is essential” adding “what matters is whether Northern Ireland would be better off with this agreement. We believe the answer to that question is yes — a resounding yes”.Read: Haass talks with NI parties expected to last well into night>last_img read more

Interview The Boston bombings suspects are my neighbours

first_imgPretty soon things just kind of escalated pretty quickly. I woke up and I knew they were chasing the bomber in Watertown, and then I checked on Twitter and addresses started popping up in my area; people saying they think he lives on Norfolk St, and then somebody said he lives at 410 on Norfolk St, and that’s when we all looked at each other and were like wait, that’s down the street.“It went from they’re chasing the bomber in Watertown to, holy crap they might live down the street,” he recalls. As police zeroed in on the Tsarnaev residence, this began to escalate even further.“Right around the time I started thinking to myself you should get your stuff together because they might start evacuating the area… maybe a minute later [at around 8am] they came knocking on the door and told us to get out,” he said.It was scary. We had all expected we were just going to hunker down in the apartment all day because they had told everyone not to leave their houses. That’s scary enough, but to have them come knocking on your door and say you have to leave, it’s not safe here… LIKE EVERY OTHER Massachusetts resident last Friday morning, Eric Grzymkowski woke up in the shadow of the previous Monday’s horrific Boston bombings attack.The twin bombs at the Boston Marathon had led to the deaths of three people and around 180 more people suffering injuries, and the hunt was on to find out who had perpetrated such a senseless crime.But writer Grzymkowski found himself inadvertently drawn into the heat of the events, when it emerged that the two men police suspected had planted the bombs lived just five doors down from him on the quiet Norfolk St in Cambridge.‘Things escalated quickly’Grzymkowski, who lives with two friends, woke up before his usual time of 8.30am when he heard his housemates talking in the living room. “I checked my phone and I had all these text messages: ‘I hope you’re OK’, ‘Don’t go to work today’, – so I knew something was up right when I woke up,” he told TheJournal.ie.The police had released photographs of the two suspects, brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the previous evening. While Grzymkowski was asleep, the two men had become involved in a police chase that led to Watertown, where Tamerlan, the elder brother, was killed. Dzhokhar, just 19 years old, escaped and was thought to be on the run.The hunt was on to find out more about the siblings – and the trail led to just down the street from Grzymkowski and his friends. EvacuationTo make matters even more frightening, police didn’t know at the time if the brothers had any explosive devices in their home, or if they had booby-trapped the apartment, said Grzymkowski. But the speed of the evacuation – he was wearing his pyjamas and his female roomate was in her bathrobe – meant that they didn’t have too much time to really grasp what was going on.I wasn’t really too worried for my own safety at that point. We didn’t even have enough time to process it.Grzymkowski did not know the Tsarnaevs. “I didn’t recognise them at all – I wish I had, ’cause I could have maybe stopped a lot of the events after,” said Grzymkowski, no doubt sharing the sentiments of other locals. “I had never seen them as far as I knew. Even when they released the clearer pics, I didn’t recognise them at all.”After the police told them to leave their homes, they didn’t get back to Norfolk St for another 14 hours, exhausted after all the activity.They woke up the following morning to a street full of reporters and Bostonians visiting to see where the bombing suspects lived.“What was normally a very quiet st in Cambridge became equal parts police zone and tourist attraction, to a degree.”Moving forwardWill it take Boston long to recover from the last week’s events? Grzymkowski thinks not: “I honestly don’t think it will affect Boston for much longer than the inital immediate aftermath.”Nobody is going to stop doing what they normally do just because someone decided to blow up the Boston Marathon.center_img I think people will get back to normal really quick.Reflecting on the past few days, it’s hard for the Norfolk St residents to believe they lived just doors away from the men suspected of the worst attack in the US since September 11 2001.“It was surreal to know that they were just down the street,” said Grzymkowski. “It goes to show you that everybody is expecting someone who is capable of that type of act to somehow be different or to somehow look like someone who would do that; but obviously you know it could be anybody… anybody is capable of that sort of attack.”He is full of admiration for the authorities that found the suspects so quickly. Dzhokhar is currently in hospital in Boston, while authorities wait to see if he will be well enough to talk to them about their suspicions. “It’s really an amazing feat from the police and the FBI and everybody else who is involved,”, said  Grzymkowski. ”To be able to orchestrate that kind of an investigation that quickly is astounding.”For Grzymkowski, his housemates and Norfolk St neighbours, life is slowly moving on after the initial shock.It was a pretty typical day yesterday and today. And I’m glad, I’m glad that people are able to get back to their lives and aren’t going to sit around watching the news for the next thing to happen.Massachusetts will never forget what happened at the Boston Marathon on Monday 15 April 2013, and Norfolk St residents may not shake the fact their neighbours were the two main suspects behind the attack. But they are determined that their home will return to the calm, safe and friendly place it has always been to them.Read: Authorities unsure if they’ll ever be able to question Boston suspect>Read: Video shows how police found Boston bombing suspect>last_img read more

Ridgefields Country Cafe has new owners

first_imgThere have been a lot of changes at Ridgefield’s Country Cafe, although diners aren’t likely to notice it on the menu. Longtime owner Carrie Dennis and her business partner recently sold the venue that has long operated just off Interstate 5 at Exit 14. The newly re-constructed intersection also has repositioned the restaurant’s site about one block north of the junction, a challenge the cafe’s new owners hope to overcome by attracting patrons to the same home-style menu.New owners Jose Guitron and his wife, Maria Mendez, also own two La Casa Tapatia Mexican restaurants in Woodland and in La Center. But Guitron, 42, said he wants to serve American food for a change.“I’ve been thinking about opening an American-style restaurant for a long time,” said Guitron, who moved to Washington with his family in 1980 from Jalisco, Mexico. He started his first restaurant in Salem, Ore., in 1987.Worked her way upAt around the same time, Dennis purchased what is now the Country Cafe from its original owners, VIP’s, a former chain of restaurants on the I-5 corridor. Dennis had worked her way up to managing the Ridgefield venue since being hired in 1981 to work the graveyard shift, serving coffee and meals to truckers and late-night travelers. Hot fudge sundaes were VIP’s signature menu item.That changed when Dennis purchased the restaurant with business partner Kevin Cameron of Salem, who is now a Republican Representative in the Oregon State Legislature.last_img read more

New study gives insight into the complicated duets of plain wrens

first_imgRelated posts:Climate change could leave sharks unable to hunt Expansion of monoculture farming could mean extinction for some tropical birds Costa Rica joins Ecuador in calling for more protection of endangered shark species Grab your binoculars: It’s Christmas Bird Count season in Costa Rica! Though they may not be much to look at, wrens have long been admired by bird watchers for their beautiful song.Some species of wrens are even known to sing together without overlapping in a complicated duet, and though their duetting ability is well documented, scientists know very little about how or why wrens exhibit this behavior.Now, a new study published in the Journal of Avian Biology shows that wrens’ duets may be more complicated than anyone ever thought.Studying a sub-species of plain wrens (Cantorchilus modestus zeledoni) in the La Suerte field station in northeastern Costa Rica, Karla Rivera Cáceres, a Ph.D. student at the University of Miami, was able to determine that the birds vary their tempo based on their singing partner rather than maintaining a consistent innate tempo.“It would be simpler to have a fixed tempo,” Rivera told The Tico Times. “They have a very complex way to coordinate their songs and that requires complex neural processing.” (Courtesy of Karla Rivera)According to Rivera, each individual wren has a repertoire of songs it can choose from. Each partner in a new breeding pair of wrens matches its song type with one of the songs of their mate.From there, Rivera found that both the male and female wrens vary the time between their song phrases based on whether or not their mate answers. A female wren will pause longer if her mate does not answer, while a male will pause for less time.The study also showed that males will change their tempo according to the song chosen by the female. The result is so flawless that wren duets often sound as if only one bird is singing.While the study was restricted to how plain wrens are able to coordinate, the results also get scientists one step closer to figuring out the biological function of duets.“The complexity of this indicates that duetting could have to do with strengthening a pair bond,” Rivera said. “It could signal to other pairs that they coordinate well and therefore work well with territorial defense.”The study has implications beyond plain wrens. The methodology Rivera used to determine the pauses in wren song could also be applied to other species, even humans.“Duetting is classified as a vocal interaction. The most commonly studied vocal interaction is that of humans,” Rivera said. “Human conversation is complex and the rules are still unclear, but this study could have broader implications for aspects of human conversation.”Listen to two wrens duet:http://ticotimes.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/150303plainwrenaudio.wav Facebook Commentslast_img read more
