UKs May stresses global cooperation at UN General Assembly

“We have to show there is a better way to meet the concerns of our people. That way lies in global cooperation between strong and accountable states based on open economies and inclusive societies,” she told Heads of State and Government on the second day of the UN General Assembly’s annual general debate.Highlighting the dangers of authoritarianism and the warping of natural patriotism into aggressive nationalism, she lambasted Russia.“We see this when States like Russia flagrantly breach international norms – from the seizing of sovereign territory to the reckless use of chemical weapons on the streets of Britain,” she said, referring to Russia’s annexation of Crimea and intervention in eastern Ukraine, and the Novichok nerve agent attack on a former Russian intelligence officer and his daughter in the English town of Salisbury.In a speech in which she used the world global 15 times and cooperation seven, Mrs. May stressed that cooperation and competition are not mutually exclusive. “Only global cooperation based on a set of agreed rules can ensure competition is fair and does not succumb to protectionism, with its certain path to lost jobs and international confrontation,” she said.“We see this cooperation here today at this UN,” she added, laying out three main pillars to advance fair globalization.“We must recognize the legitimacy of people’s concerns and act to build a global economy that works for everyone. We must invest in the patient work of building open societies in which everyone has a stake in the future. And we must act to uphold the international rules-based system – and stand up for our values by protecting those who may suffer when it is violated,” she said.On the first, she noted that the pace of globalization has left too many people behind, and she called for investing in industries of the future to create new jobs from low carbon technologies to Artificial Intelligence, and providing the education these require.Secondly, she stressed the need to build countries, not only economies, which work for everyone with inclusive societies where every citizen has a stake in the future, where transparency and accountability are paramount with an independent judiciary, free and fair elections, and a free and open media.Mrs. May said the UK vote to leave the European Union (EU) was not a rejection of multilateralism or international cooperation, but a clear demand for decisions and accountability to lie closer to home.On the third issue of an international rules-based system, she stressed the “moral imperative” of reacting forcefully to any violations.“When barbarous acts and aggression go unchecked – dictators and terrorists are emboldened. So, we must have the confidence to act,” she declared, citing the military action taken by the UK, France and the United States when the Syrian regime used chemical weapons on its people in April, and the expulsion by the UK, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the EU and other allies of over 150 Russian intelligence officers in response to the Salisbury attack.In Myanmar, after the damning report of the UN fact-finding mission on the appalling atrocities repeatedly inflicted by the “Burmese military” on the Rohingya, Shan and Kachin peoples since 2011, “we should show the same confidence to hold accountable those responsible,” she said. “But accountability alone is not enough. We must do more collectively to prevent such atrocities in the first place, and address the causes of instability that can give rise to them. The United Nations has a critical role to play.”Full statement available here. read more

Increasing material handling productivity with superior transfer point design

first_imgA number of factors influence the on-site productivity of bulk materials handling operations at mineral processing plants. An element that plays a great role in providing a clean, safe and productive environment is the design of transfer points. Traditionally, conveyor systems design focused more on the structural integrity of the system and the selection of the mechanical components. Unfortunately, the design of the transfer points was considered of secondary importance and was constrained by a lack of design analysis of the material flow characteristics and needs.Poor design and implementation of transfer points can result in increased maintenance costs for minerals processing systems. “In essence, mineral processing plants need a system that is upgradeable and cost effective, that will improve accessibility and serviceability, decrease downtime and conveyor belt wear, and that conforms to SHEQ (safety, health, environmental and quality) regulations,” says Mark Baller, Managing Director of Weba Chute Systems. Ballers points out that the issue at hand is the uncontrolled discharge of bulk materials through conventional chutes. Using information gathered from flow studies, on-site investigations and extensive operational experience, the Weba Chute Systems team tackled the problem and devised a solution that would optimise material flow in the direction of travel.The main thrust of the research and subsequent design of the Weba Chute System ‘supertube’ effect with a cascade scenario is to minimise the impact on both the chute and the conveyor belt. “We investigated the optimal way of ensuring that the material is evenly and centrally loaded onto the conveyor belt. With the Weba Chute System, up to 95% of the material runs on material at all times. The bottom layer of particles in the product stream moves in a tumbling motion rather than sliding down the chute,” Baller explains. The design was achieved using a sophisticated 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) program. It has resulted in significantly reduced wear, less spillage and enhanced SHEQ compliance.Productivity is also influenced by two other salient factors – the ability to fit-to-purpose and the after-sales service that a chute manufacturer provides. Weba Chute Systems approaches each project in an individualised manner. “The process begins with a thorough site visit where the Weba Chute Systems ascertains the exact requirements of the customer through interviews with their operational and engineering teams. Thereafter, the optimum design is created and tested using a combination of sound engineering tools, substantial practical knowledge and Discrete Element Method (DEM) simulation as a verification tool,” Baller explains.“It is important to factor in the operation’s unique product specifications and data, belt width, belt speed, material sizes and shape, and throughput as well as the plant layout, including the position of belt scrapers and dust suppression/extraction systems. We take a holistic approach towards chute design, which encapsulates both the entry and exit points, as well as the control of the flow, volume and velocity of the material being transferred at all times,” Baller continues. The company is so confident of its design methodology that it offers the end user a performance warranty.Weba Chute Systems believes in accommodating the customer’s project schedule and will pull out all stops to ensure that deadlines are timeously met, without compromising quality. “By working closely with the customer’s team we are able to rapidly address and resolve any issues. Our support team is trained to instantly assess and alleviate unforeseen spillages, high wear and blockages through consultation with our chief designer and engineering department,” says Baller.The interaction and involvement with the installation and customer does not end when the project is commissioned. Weba Chute Systems remains involved with the customer and encourages ongoing proactive and planned maintenance checks. By identifying and resolving any possible issues in a pre-emptive manner, downtime is eliminated and productivity is increased.In yet another instance of proactively searching for solutions that will add benefits for its customers, the company has also developed an innovative quick release cast modular chute lip system. “The quick release cast chute lip will result in a much faster change out period for mine personnel, resulting in higher productivity levels,” Baller concludes.last_img read more

The Qualcomm Dev phone sets the bar for nextgen Android phones

first_imgIt seems like every couple of days a new Android phone or tablet gets announced. Some have larger screens, some flavor of 4G (or “Faux G” if you’re a Dan Hesse fan), maybe a dual-core processor or a powerful single core one, and a handful of other features. Every manufacturer in the Android arms race is trying to get up on the next guy, a move considered by some as increasing the fragmentation between Android handsets. The upside is that Android users are often able to use cutting edge mobile hardware, and benefit from the development that follows.As hardware continues to evolve, device manufacturers will need to get devices in the hands of app developers so their apps can be optimized for the new hardware. Qualcomm, the manufacturer of the popular Snapdragon chipsets, has created a developer device specifically to allow for early development before a handset is released to the public.It was not too long ago that Qualcomm announced the dual-core Snapdragon chipset into their lineup. Paired with that announcement, Qualcomm has teamed up with SRS Labs to enable 3D Surround Sound on all of their future chips. These, and many more hardware changes has lead to the creation of a “Developer” handset for operating system and video game manufacturers to test their products. Originally shown of at this years Game Developer Conference and again at CTIA: Mobile Focus 2011, Qualcomm’s developer handset was used to demonstrate both video games and 3D Surround Sound.You can briefly see the phone in action here:From what we’ve been told, this device is running a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor with the Adreno 220 GPU, 1GB of Ram, with a stereo speaker system and a quad microphone setup. From the video, you can see a pair of the microphones in the front of the device. Additionally, you can see the 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera to match the 13 megapixel rear-facing camera.It runs Android 2.3, though it’s not a Google approved device it’s lacks the Android Market, making it specifically a development-only device, just in case you had planned on grabbing one as your personal phone. Also, as it’s a test device, the battery inside the phone is not a typical snap-in battery cell, but rather a battery pack more akin to what you would see in an older cordless home telephone. This battery does not hold a charge particularly well, especially when it’s off.The phone, while not particularly attractive or useful for more than development purposes, shows a bar for the next generation of Smartphones to meet, particularly to keep up with 3D game development and audio capabilities in the mobile space. In my own hands on with the device, the 3D sound worked amazingly when headphones were applied, and still offered an improved depth of sound when using the stereo speakers. Gaming on this handset was incredibly smooth and without visual artifacting. All in all, Qualcomm is headed in the right direction and will promote the development of apps on their hardware.Qualcomm has not made any official announcement as to when app developers will be able to request or purchase these handsets, and they are currently only available to partners.last_img read more

Horrifying and heartbreaking

first_img“The scene was not only horrifying, but it was also heartbreaking,” reporter George Hatzimanolis told Neos Kosmos after witnessing first-hand Thursday’s events unfold in Syntagma. “It’s hard to fathom how this once proud city has been turned into a battle zone between the youth and the police.” One of the estimated 50,000 people outside the Greek parliament on the second day of the strike, Neos Kosmos’ correspondent Hatzimanolis described how a minority of protestors turned a demonstration of peaceful solidarity against the government’s policies into a flaming battlefield.“What I saw was some very angry and frustrated people, mostly aged between 16 and 21 and most of them male, who used what was a largely peaceful protest as a catalyst to cause havoc. Wearing motorcycle helmets, dressed in black and covering their faces, they wielded sticks and baseball bats and used large pieces of marble as ammunition.” Hatzimanolis’ criticisms of the perpetrators of Thursday’s violence do not stop at the hooded youths bent on injuring whoever they feel is deserving of their anger. “The police overuse the tear gas, and at times chase and hit anyone they can get their hands on,” says Hatzimanolis. “They appear to be enticing the youth to react violently. It’s almost as though it’s a territorial battle with neither side willing to back down. One has the numbers, the other has the weapons.” “The disappointing thing is that these riots have overshadowed the peaceful protesters’ message. But they have sent another message out, not only to the Greek leaders, but also to the world, that the Greeks will not take further austerity measures lying down. They are willing to fight this to the end. Many of the young people today spoke only of getting more reinforcements, of becoming more violent, and of standing up to what they call a new junta.” Office worker Christina Ioannou went to Syntagma on Wednesday to show her solidarity with around 80,000 others who turned out to oppose the Government’s austerity program. Christine told Neos Kosmos: “Greek people of all classes feel that their future, and the future of their children has been mortgaged indefinitely.” “The nation’s sovereignty has been given to the markets, and the opposition of all colours, is numb and moronic – they offer no sustainable or logical alternative.” Christine believes the only positive that can be taken from the crisis, “is that at long last, the nation may actually pass from adolescence to full maturity, and become more circumspect of all politicians.” “The country is at a standstill . Our capacity to dream and work towards one’s goals has not only been compromised but pulverised.” Meanwhile, Christine, like her fellow Athenians, must pick her way through the tangible effects of the crisis on the streets: “The rubbish is reaching mountain peaks on each sidewalk and many have seen the first scavenger rats rumbling through.” Despite the protests in Syntagma, in which one man died reportedly of a heart attack, the Greek parliament endorsed the latest austerity measures required to meet the conditions of the EU/IMF bailout plan. The measures approved last week include a new pay system covering Greece’s 700,000 civil servants, cuts in public sector wages, the suspension of some 30,000 public sector workers, along with wage bargaining, and monthly pensions above 1,000 euros being cut by 20 per cent. Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos described the dilemma facing Greece as a choice between, “a difficult situation and a catastrophe.” “We have to explain to all these indignant people who see their lives changing that what the country is experiencing is not the worst stage of the crisis,” said the Pasok minister. “It is an anguished and necessary effort to avoid the ultimate, deepest and harshest level of the crisis.” Louka Katseli, a fellow Pasok MP who voted against the new measures has been expelled from the party by Prime Minister George Papandreou.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Planet Protectors Hold First Meeting At Yentile Farm

first_imgDear Editor,I have lived here in Wilmington for many years, and this week I witnessed an amazing group of kids with their parents and friends meet at Yentile Park for an initial meeting called “Healing the Earth.” I heard of this group from my cousin Linda Sessa, whose young child, Vin, is concerned about climate change and wants to do more as a community to help.On Wednesday, June 12, 2019, the group (facilitated by kids) brainstormed ideas and made a list of what they can do as individuals and as a community to help with their goal of healing the earth. They voted on a name for the group, Planet Protectors, and even set up a Planet Protectors Facebook page. More meetings will follow. In the meantime, they will send letters to government officials asking for reduction in emissions and plastic use and increasing sustainability actions.How inspiring to see young kids so smart and engaged and willing to do their part in making the world a better of place. and it all began here in Wilmington, at Yentile Park!Sincerely,Dan SarnoLike Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Southeast tribes broaden transboundary alliance

first_imgThe state has identified eight transboundary watersheds feeding Southeast Alaska rivers. Tribal governments and groups from Southeast and British Columbia met March 12-13 to talk strategy in their fight against B.C. mines in those watersheds. (Map by Alaska Department of Natural Resources.)Southeast tribal leaders are gaining new allies in their battle against British Columbia mining projects.Representatives of a dozen Alaska tribal governments and organizations met earlier this week with their counterparts from British Columbia, Idaho and the Yukon River watershed.Southeast Alaska Indigenous Transboundary Commission Chairman Frederick Otilius Olsen Jr. said the gathering strengthened an informal alliance. Olsen is also tribal president of the Organized Village of Kasaan.“The purpose of the meeting was to continue the unification of the indigenous voices around the issue of the so-called transboundary mines and also any transboundary industrial activities,” Olsen said.The more than 30 representatives met Monday and Tuesday at the Tulalip Indian Reservation, between Seattle and Vancouver, British Columbia.The alliance released this proclamation at the end of the meeting:Olsen said they shared concerns about damage to traditional waterways and lands. He said they also talked about state, provincial and national environmental programs they say don’t work.“We call on the federal governments to do their jobs. To listen to us and work with us. And you know what, if they can’t do it or won’t do it, as one of our members said, ‘Give us a shovel. Let us do it,’” Olsen said.Southeast’s indigenous transboundary commission is already working with the United Tribes of Bristol Bay. That group opposes Southwest Alaska’s Pebble Mine project.Developers on both sides of the border challenge the assumption that their projects will damage fish and other resources.last_img read more

Nearly 90000 refugees cross into Bangladesh in 10 days

first_imgRohingya refugees walk on the muddy path after crossing the Bangladesh-Myanmar border in Teknaf. ReutersA total of 87,000 mostly Rohingya refugees have arrived in Bangladesh since violence erupted in neighbouring Myanmar on August 25, the United Nations said Monday, amid growing international criticism of Aung San Suu Kyi.Thousands of the stateless Muslim minority have fled the mainly Buddhist nation and poured over the border since the latest round of fighting broke out, piling pressure on the already overcrowded camps in Bangladesh.Around 20,000 more were massed on the border between Bangladesh and Myanmar’s western state of Rakhine and waiting to enter, the UN said in a report.Dhaka had stepped up border controls after the latest round of violence began 10 days ago, but the UN said recent arrivals reported there had been no attempt to stop them from crossing.One Bangladeshi border guard told AFP the sheer numbers of people desperate to enter the country had made it impossible to stop the influx.“It is bigger than the last time,” said the guard, who asked not to be named, referring to the influx of refugees that followed an outbreak of violence last October.“If it continues then we will face serious problems. But it’s impossible to stop the flow, these people are everywhere,” he added.The UN said most of the new arrivals were in the squalid camps already housing hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees around the coastal town of Cox’s Bazar.But many lacked shelter from the heavy monsoon rains and an AFP reporter on the ground said hundreds of new makeshift shelters had sprung up on the outskirts of the sprawling camps in recent days.“It has been raining frequently since last week. We have to keep our children safe from being sick,” said Amena Begum, a newly arrived mother of five.Mounting criticismRohingya refugees walk on the muddy path after crossing the Bangladesh-Myanmar border in Teknaf. ReutersRefugees in Cox’s Bazar have alleged their families were massacred and villages torched by security forces and Buddhist mobs.The latest clashes broke out when Rohingya militants attacked security installationsMyanmar accuses the militants—which it describes as “Bengali terrorists”—of setting fire to Rohingya houses and those of other communities.De facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi, a former political prisoner of Myanmar’s junta, has come under increasing fire over her perceived unwillingness to speak out against the treatment of the Rohingya or chastise the military.She has made no public comment since the latest fighting broke out.“Over the last several years I have repeatedly condemned this tragic and shameful treatment,” Pakistani activist and fellow Nobel peace prize laureate Malala Yousafzai said in a statement about the Rohingya crisis on Twitter.“I am still waiting for my fellow Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to do the same.”The crisis threatens Myanmar’s diplomatic relations, particularly with Muslim-majority countries in Southeast Asia where there is profound public anger over the treatment of the Rohingya.Indonesia’s Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi met Myanmar’s army chief General Min Aung Hlaing in Naypyidaw on Monday to try to pressure the government to do more to alleviate the crisis.Rakhine has been a crucible of religious violence since 2012, when riots erupted. Scores of Rohingya were killed and tens of thousands of people—the majority from the Muslim minority—were forced into displacement camps.But the current round of fighting is the worst yet.Myanmar’s army has said nearly 400 people have died in the past 10 days, including 370 Rohingya militants.Ethnic Rakhine Buddhists and other tribal groups are also among the dead and displaced after allegedly being targeted by Rohingya militants.Scores of people have drowned while attempting to flee the violence by crossing the Naf border river into Bangladesh.Bangladeshi coastguards have said many migrants are travelling on rickety fishing boats unsuitable for the rough waters.On Monday police in Bangladesh said the body of a Rohingya woman had washed ashore, bringing the total number of drowned to 54.Most of those entering Bangladesh are women, children or elderly men, and the refugees say that many young men have stayed behind to fight.Bangladesh was already home to an estimated 400,000 Rohingya before the latest influx and has made clear it doesn not want more coming in.It has pushed a number of them back, in what rights groups say is a contravention of its international obligations.last_img read more

Fakespot uncover fake reviews on Amazon Yelp and Tripadvisor

first_imgFakespot: uncover fake reviews on Amazon, Yelp and Tripadvisor by Martin Brinkmann on January 03, 2018 in Internet – 12 commentsFakespot is a free online service that helps you uncover fake reviews on Amazon, Yelp, and Tripadvisor by analyzing reviews and grading them.Most shopping, travel and business listing sites support user reviews. Reviews are designed to assist Internet users in making decisions. Should you eat in restaurant A or B, or buy that motherboard or another one.One of the big issues with reviews is that anyone can leave them. This opens the door for fake reviews, especially since companies tend to favor products with good reviews over products with fewer or less good ratings.FakespotIt is sometimes difficult to spot fake reviews as a user as you have a limit amount of information available. You get a username, date and the review text. Some sites link to reviewer profiles on top of that.You cannot trust the overall rating blindly and need to go through reviews manually to decide on a review by review basis whether it is legitimate or fake.Fakespot assists you in that. It works by pasting an URL of an Amazon product page, Yelp or TripAdvisor business page in the form on the Fakespot website and selecting analyze afterward.Results are displayed immediately if the URL is already in the Fakespot database, or analyzed on the fly if it is not.Fakespot gives an overall rating from A to F, an overview of the analysis, a summary of reviews, and a list of unreliable reviewers.The grade defines the percentage of reliable reviews and reviewers. Grade A product reviews are 90% or more reliable, Grade F product reviews up to 44% reliable only.Fakespot’s analysis of reviews uses multiple data points that manual reviewers have a hard time getting their hands on. On Amazon, for example, it takes into account verified purchases, date and content correlations, purchasing patterns, and writing style among others.The primary criteria is the language utilized by the reviewer, the profile of the reviewer,correlation with other reviewers data and machine learning algorithm that focuses on improving itself by detecting fraudulent reviews.The technologies include: profile clusters, sentiment analysis, cluster correlation and artificial intelligence intertwined with these functionalities.Fakespot supports select Amazon sites only at the time of writing. The supported sites are,,,, and All Vine and Discount Disclaimer reviews are considered unreliable by the service.Closing WordsFakespot is a handy service to get a first impression of the quality of reviews of a product on Amazon, Yelp, or TripAdvisor. I suggest you use it as a tool to get a quick reading on the quality of reviews of a product or business, but don’t use it exclusively.
