La violencia ha sidofomentada y estimulada por los líderes políticos que buscan sus propios intereses.Aunque los medios de comunicación presentan el conflicto como étnico, sus raíces, como en cualquier conflicto, son variados y complicados. De cualquier modo, nunca puede haber una lógica para el sufrimiento que se ha forjado.Nuestros socios en la Iglesia Episcopal de Sudán del Sur y Sudán han sufrido muchas pérdidas masivas. Su pueblo ha sido asesinado, violado, torturado y quemado fuera de sus hogares. Las iglesias y pueblos enteros han sido destruidos.

Your Economy & Development news is made possible with support from: Matt Butler As it is currently proposed, the project would include 440 housing units, 73,424 square feet of commercial office space and 33,212 square feet of retail space, with more space for industrial and community uses. It is slated to cost $145 million in total for local development firm Novarr-Mackesey. Due to Collegetown zoning restrictions, the project will need a planned unit development approval, which normally allow projects to violate zoning if they bring enough community benefit to the local area to outweigh the zoning concerns.The public will be able to hear more about the project at the information session on Monday, Dec. 7, scheduled at 5:30 p.m. The link for more information about the livestream, which will be hosted on the City of Ithaca’s YouTube page, is available here.The full PUD application is available here. ITHACA, N.Y.— The City of Ithaca will be holding an information session in early December regarding the proposed planned unit development zone for the Collegetown Innovation District, the long-rumored housing and commercial project that was introduced earlier in November.

highlights Game 3: India vs South Africa, 2011 World Cup, Nagpur. Result: South Africa wonIndia again chose to bat and they got a great start thanks to Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag. Sehwag and Tendulkar’s opening stand was 142 and despite Sehwag falling for 73, Tendulkar notched up his 99th international century and Gautam Gambhir chipped in with 69. However, a collapse of nine wickets for 29 runs restricted India to 296 all out with Dale Steyn taking 5/50. South Africa was boosted by fifties from Hashim Amla and Jacques Kallis but AB de Villiers’ 52 off 33 balls was key. Johan Botha’s 23 off 15 balls and a seven-ball 18 from Robin Peterson helped South Africa over the line by three wickets with two balls to spare.Game 4: India vs South Africa, 2015 World Cup, Melbourne. Result: India wonIndia finally broke their jinx against South Africa in the World Cup clash at the MCG. Shikhar Dhawan blasted 137 and was aided brilliantly by Ajinkya Rahane who blasted 79 off 76 balls as India reached 307/7. Ravichandran Ashwin took 3/41 and was well backed up by Mohit Sharma and Mohammed Shami’s two wickets as India won by a comprehensive margin of 130 runs.

India has three out of four World Cup clashes against South Africa.South Africa have lost their first two games in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.India lost and won their warm-up games against New Zealand and Bangladesh. New Delhi: Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team finally start their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 campaign against South Africa at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. In recent clashes, India has held the upper hand when it comes to ODI contests in South Africa. In January 2018, India registered a comprehensive 5-1 win series win in the six-match ODI series and in 2017, they had gotten the better of South Africa at The Oval in the ICC Champions Trophy. In the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, South Africa hold a 3-1 head-to-head advantage but on current form, India is favourites to get their campaign off to a great start. South Africa, on the other hand, are low on confidence after losing to England and Bangladesh. Here are the past encounters between India and South Africa in the World CupGame 1: India vs South Africa, 1992 World Cup, Adelaide. Result: South Africa wonThe first meeting between the two sides took place in the 1992 World Cup clash in Adelaide. India was already out of the reckoning for the semi-finals while South Africa had a chance. Rain in Adelaide reduced the clash to a 30-overs-per-side affair. India batted first and was boosted by a splendid knock of 79 off 77 balls from Mohammad Azharuddin. Kapil Dev blasted 42 off 29 balls as India reached 180/6. In response, Andrew Hudson’s 53 and a brilliant 84 off 86 balls from Peter Kirsten gave South Africa a six-wicket win with five balls to spare.Game 2: India vs South Africa, 1999 World Cup, Brighton. Result: South Africa wonIndia chose to bat in the second match of the 1999 World Cup held in England and they were boosted by a 130-run stand between Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid. Ganguly’s 97 and Dravid’s 54 helped India reach 253/5. In response, South Africa was in trouble at 116/4 but Jacques Kallis’ awesome 96 and a calm knock of 39 off 42 balls from Jonty Rhodes prolonged India’s agony as South Africa won by four wickets.
CRICKET: NAGPUR, India (CMC): Chris Gayle has described fellow opener Andre Fletcher as a ‘dangerous’ batsman capable of posting big scores, after he plundered an unbeaten half century to lead West Indies to a seven-wicket victory over Sri Lanka in the T20 World Cup on Sunday. Fletcher filled the opening slot when Gayle was injured and scored a career-best 84 not out off 64 balls to seal a comfortable win over Sri Lanka, their second win after beating England in their opening fixture. Gayle is backing Fletcher to continue his prolific form in the tournament. “It was fantastic to see Fletcher. I have opened the batting with Fletcher many times and I know what sort of player he is,” said Gayle. “He is very dangerous and he is capable of getting big scores, so hopefully he can build on this and carry on and don’t leave it for anybody and get a few more Man of the Match.” The right-handed Fletcher dominated a 39-run first-wicket stand with Johnson Charles and added 55 in an unbroken fourth-wicket stand with Andre Russell to help West Indies overhaul a paltry 123 set by Sri Lanka. Gayle is encouraging Fletcher to play his natural aggressive game and to continue batting deep into the innings. “You have to pick and choose your bowlers who you want to target at particular times and what works for him as well. Continue being aggressive in the first six overs and try and capitalise on that new ball as a batter,” Gayle advised. “You just have to keep that aggression going … try and take it as deep as possible … still look to pick up the odd boundaries in between the middle overs as well and build on whatever start you get.” Gayle took the Man-of-the-Match award with a boundary-studded 100 not out off 48 balls as Windies beat England in their opening match in Mumbai. “Hopefully I can follow-up with more innings like this,” said Gayle. “But if it does not happen we have a lot of guys who are match winners themselves, who can actually do the same thing and destroy bowling attacks around the world.” The Windies arrived in Nagpur on Monday afternoon where they are preparing to face South Africa on Good Friday. First ball is 7:30 p.m. (10 a.m. Eastern Caribbean Time/9 a.m. Jamaica Time).
Oil bonusA decision was taken by Cabinet to set aside US$15 million from the signing bonus that Government received from US oil giant ExxonMobil to be used towards the border controversy case with Venezuela.Foreign Affairs Minister Carl GreenidgeThis disclosure was made by Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge on Tuesday during a press conference at the Foreign Affairs Ministry, South Road, Georgetown office.While Government had initially received the US$18 million bonus, Greenidge said it was decided that part of the bonus could be used for the legal challenge, while the remaining US$3 million was set aside for training.In that same breath, the Minister said there may be a need for more monies to assist with the legal case as the US$15 million may be inadequate. “It is not possible for me to say what it will cost, the lawyers themselves don’t know,” he explained to media operatives when asked to state how much more would be needed.Greenidge did, however, state that other needs may arise for additional skills and research, and this would require supplementary funds. He again stated, “The US$15 million may not be adequate.”He also reminded that it was Government’s intention to have portions of the signing bonus transferred to the Consolidated Fund whenever there was a need for finances relating to this matter.“So, for 2018, the Minister of Finance (Winston Jordan) will, down the road, come for supplementary funding, and it will be indicated at that time,” Greenidge explained to the media.Meanwhile, while Government has already started legal proceedings at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the Minister explained that the ICJ will determine whether it has jurisdiction to address the matter.“That’s a routine, all of them do that. Having looked at the case and determined where they can look…, what is within their powers, they will say to the two parties ‘we will begin’ in which case, Guyana will be required to submit a full document of its case,” he said.When asked to provide the names of the members of the legal team that will represent Guyana at the ICJ, the Minister said it was too early to divulge such information and promised to do that at the appropriate time. There are, however, reports that Sir Shridath Ramphal will lead the Guyanese legal team.The Foreign Affairs Minister said whether or not Venezuela chose to participate in the case, at the end of the day, the ICJ’s ruling would be binding.This process, the Minister said, could require oral hearings and written submissions from both countries.The ICJ is now awaiting a response from Venezuela following the submission of the case by Guyana.Greenidge also used the opportunity to warn that the ICJ could use several grounds to ‘walk away’ from the case. As such, he urged the media and the public to be cautious in what they say and report on this sensitive matter. He said these things could interfere with the case.Some two months after United Nations Secretary General António Guterres had handed over the Guyana-Venezuela border controversy case to the ICJ for final settlement, formal proceedings were filed on March 30, asking the World Court to confirm the legal validity and binding effect of the 1899 Arbitral Award. Guyana’s application was submitted to the ICJ by Second Vice President and Foreign Affairs Minister Greenidge.Secretary General Guterres earlier this year chose the ICJ as the next means of resolving the controversy, which arose as a result of Venezuela’s contention that the Arbitral Award of 1899 with regard to the frontier between British Guiana and Venezuela was null and void.According to Guyana’s application to the ICJ, Venezuela had, for more than 60 years, consistently recognised and respected the validity of the binding force of the 1899 Award and the 1905 Map agreed by both sides in furtherance of the Award.Guyana maintains that the 1899 Arbitral Award that settled the boundary between Guyana and Venezuela was full and final, but Venezuela has, for several decades, registered its diplomatic and military objection to Guyana’s development of its natural resources onshore and offshore the Essequibo.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Todd NeeleyDTN Staff ReporterOMAHA (DTN) — The EPA continues to find no human health risks associated with the use of glyphosate and the herbicide is not a carcinogen, the agency said in its latest review.However, the agency did acknowledge glyphosate poses some ecological risks.“While the agency did not identify public health risks in the 2017 human health risk assessment, the 2017 ecological assessment did identify ecological risks,” EPA said in a news release.“To address these risks, EPA is proposing management measures to help farmers target pesticide sprays on the intended pest, protect pollinators, and reduce the problem of weeds becoming resistant to glyphosate.”Agricultural crops genetically engineered to withstand glyphosate have greatly expanded the use of the chemistry since 1996. Glyphosate also is used in forestry, urban, lawn and garden applications. Bayer also had glyphosate in its portfolio before acquiring Monsanto.That broad use has drawn worldwide attention to the herbicide and to its safety.Though glyphosate was developed by Monsanto, it is off-patent and sold by many agriculture companies as one of the most widely used herbicides in the world. It came to market in 1974 under Monsanto’s Roundup label for control of perennial and annual weeds in non-crop and industrial areas. In 2018, California regulators failed in an attempt to label glyphosate products as “known to cause cancer.”At the end of March, a California jury awarded $80 million to a man with non-Hodgkin lymphoma who had used glyphosate at an animal refuge for nearly 30 years. Last year, another jury in the state awarded $287 million to a groundskeeper with cancer who used the chemical. In all, there are 11,200 lawsuits aimed at glyphosate.Earlier in April, Vietnam’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development banned the import of glyphosate after a series of legal defeats for Bayer in U.S. civil lawsuits alleging the weed killer caused cancer.In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a World Health Organization agency, concluded glyphosate was “probably carcinogenic.”IARC came under fire as a result of its broad declarations about what is carcinogenic in detailed summary reports known as monographs. The agency, for instance, drew scorn in 2015 for a monograph classifying processed red meats such as bacon as carcinogenic.The IARC’s glyphosate finding set off a series of reactions. The EPA released and retracted a report refuting the IARC’s conclusion in 2015.At the end of December 2017, EPA announced in its draft risk assessment of glyphosate that the herbicide is not likely to be carcinogenic to humans.At the end of November 2017, the European Union approved a five-year extension of glyphosate’s use.On Tuesday, EPA said its latest conclusions are consistent with the conclusions of science reviews by other countries and other federal agencies.EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler said in the news release the agency will take additional steps to assure glyphosate’s safety.“Today’s proposed action includes new management measures that will help farmers use glyphosate in the most effective and efficient way possible, including pollinator protections,” he said. “We look forward to input from farmers and other stakeholders to ensure that the draft management measures are workable, realistic and effective.”U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said glyphosate is an important tool for farmers.“If we are going to feed 10 billion people by 2050, we are going to need all the tools at our disposal, which includes the use the glyphosate,” he said in a statement. “USDA applauds EPA’s proposed registration decision as it is science-based and consistent with the findings of other regulatory authorities that glyphosate does not pose a carcinogenic hazard to humans.”Once the EPA publishes a public notice in the Federal Register on the review, it will be subject to public comment for 60 days.Read EPA’s proposed interim decision here: https://www.epa.gov/…Todd Neeley can be reached at [email protected] him on Twitter @toddneeleyDTN(AG/CZ)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

An evaluation report on India’s tiger reserves has put the spotlight on an alleged nexus between some officials of Kaziranga National Park and poachers.Kaziranga, a World Heritage Site designated by UNESCO, is more popular as the world’s best address for the one-horned rhino. It is also been a major tiger reserve covering an area of 1,080 sq km.Prime Minister Narendra Modi had earlier this week released the management effectiveness evaluation reports for tiger reserves across the country, including Kaziranga.The report says that some staff of Kaziranga Tiger Reserve may sometimes get involved in poaching by helping the poachers. To drive home the point, the report cites the poaching of three rhinos in as many days in November 2017 close to the Tunikati anti-poaching camp under the Burapahar Range.Anti-poaching camps “When there are 178 anti-poaching camps in a 911-sq-km area, each camp has to protect 5 sq km. Given the resources at the command of the personnel, it should not be difficult to guard the area effectively. Such poaching close to the camps leads to the suspicion of the involvement of officials,” it says.The report also notes Kaziranga’s management weakness in coordinating with forest officials of Karbi Anglong, which runs along the southern boundary of the tiger reserve. This is because the forest officials of Karbi Anglong, an autonomous tribal council, are not answerable to the heads of Assam’s Forest Department.The hills of Karbi Anglong not only provide shelter to the animals of Kaziranga during high floods but also cover for poachers, the report said.Railway lineAssam Forest Minister Parimal Suklabaidya had informed the 126-member State Assembly that an expert committee had been formed to study the proposal for laying a second track through Deepor Beel, a wetland on the western edge of Guwahati that was listed in 2002 as a Ramsar Site.“The panel will submit its report to the National Green Tribunal, which will decide on whether or not to go ahead with the project,” Mr. Suklabaidya said.

Story Highlights The National Commission on Science and Technology (NCST) is now in the process of assessing proposals and applications for the Science and Technology Research and Development Fund. Dr. Wheatley said that the applications are being assessed based on merit of what it can do to improve the lives of Jamaicans, including creating employment opportunities or contributing to national development. The National Commission on Science and Technology (NCST) is now in the process of assessing proposals and applications for the Science and Technology Research and Development Fund.Speaking at a JIS ‘Think Tank’ recently, Minister of Science, Energy and Technology, Dr. the Hon. Andrew Wheatley, said the Commission has received several promising applications, for which they have hopes of seeing a number of products coming to market.The Minister further added that the hope is to also see these businesses providing well-needed employment to Jamaicans.Dr. Wheatley said that the applications are being assessed based on merit of what it can do to improve the lives of Jamaicans, including creating employment opportunities or contributing to national development.The $30-million research and development fund will allow Jamaicans with their products, researchers employed to a higher educational institution or to a public or private non-profit research organisation or unit to get financial assistance.“The Fund was created as part of a [structured] approach to ensure that Jamaica develops the sciences through research and development,” the Minister said.“We as a Government need to invest in research and development, and would also like to see the private sector do the same,” he added, explaining that as a society “we rely too heavily on imported products instead of producing for our own consumption”.Dr. Wheatley said that Jamaicans have the inherent capacity to be innovative and creative, so the Government is investing in the people.Calls for proposals were made by the Ministry in April 2017.
