UN World Habitat Day 2005 to focus on cities slums and development

The theme for this year’s Habitat Day, which was set by the UN as the first Monday of October and falls on 3 October 2005, will be “The Millennium Development Goals and the City,” according to the agency, UN-HABITAT. The event, celebrated in cities around the world, will be spearheaded this year from the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, to remind the world that countless thousands of homes were destroyed last December by the tsunami killer waves that devastated Banda Aceh and hundreds of other settlements on the coasts of the Indian Ocean, the agency said. UN-HABITAT’s Executive Director, Anna Tibaijuka, will be travelling to Jakarta for the occasion. She will stress the urgent need for global action to tackle the slow-motion tsunami of growing urban poverty in Africa, Asia and Latin America. She will also present awards for achievements in the provision of shelter and sustainable urban development. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are a set of eight ambitious targets for reducing the impact of poverty, illiteracy, hunger, unsafe water, disease and urban and environmental degradation, agreed upon at the UN’s Millennium Summit in 2000. Targets include improving the living conditions of at least 100 million slum dwellers by 2020, and halving the amount of people who lack access to safe drinking water. UN-HABITAT is working with a number of international and civil society organizations, cities and governments to realize those targets. Its Global Campaign on Urban Governance and its Global Campaign for Secure Tenure are connected to that work through a series of UN-HABITAT programmes, mainly in developing countries that shoulder the heaviest poverty burdens. read more

Canadian Natural Q3 profit drops bitumen upgrader gets the green light

by Lauren Krugel, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 8, 2012 2:11 pm MDT Canadian Natural Q3 profit drops, bitumen upgrader gets the green light AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CALGARY – Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. scaled back its oilsands production expectations and reported a sharp drop in third-quarter profit on Thursday as it and partner North West Upgrading Ltd. also announced they’ll go ahead with building a new bitumen refinery near Edmonton.The major Calgary-based oil producer (TSX:CNQ) said it took the “conservative” step of running its Horizon oilsands operations near Fort McMurray, Alta., at reduced rates during the third quarter in preparation for a planned maintenance outage in October.The outage was to take place earlier in the year, but Canadian Natural delayed it so it could add some more maintenance tasks meant to protect the equipment during the winter months.The downtime affected production volumes during the third quarter, and is expected to also do so during the fourth quarter as well. But chief operating officer Steve Laut says it’s the right thing to do.“Although these actions impacted production in Q3 and Q4, it is the right decision to make as it increases our reliability going forward, especially as we head into the winter months and will result in greater yearly production volumes as we go forward,” he told a conference call with analysts.Canadian Natural has been working to improve its oilsands operations after fire wrecked a coking unit at the Horizon upgrader in early 2011, leading to seven months of downtime, and separate issues earlier this year took down the facility for five weeks.Horizon churned out 99,200 barrels per day during the third quarter, an improvement from 50,345 barrels per day during the same period a year earlier, when it was still recovering from the fire.For the fourth quarter, Canadian Natural expects production to dip to between 85,000 and 95,000 barrels of oil per day from Horizon and finish off 2012 with a total average rate of between 87,000 and 95,000 barrels of oil per day.As recently as Oct. 26, Canadian Natural had pegged full 2012 production guidance at 90,000 to 98,000 barrels per day from Horizon, but it encountered some issues after restarting the facility that crimped output.Also Thursday, Canadian Natural and its partner, North West Upgrading Inc., said their respective boards had given their formal blessing to the first phase of the Sturgeon refinery in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland.The project is expected to cost $5.7 billion and will process 50,000 barrels per day of bitumen from Alberta oilsands once the first phase starts up. It can be expanded in two more phases to up to 150,000 barrels per day.The refinery will take about three years to build and above-ground construction is set to begin in the spring.The Alberta government will supply 75 per cent of the bitumen to the refinery as part of a program to help support the province’s oilsands processing industry, while Canadian Natural will supply the rest.The facility will capture 1.2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide, which will be sold to oil companies who can use the gas to increase pressure in mature reservoirs and boost production.Canadian Natural shares fell nearly four per cent to $27.83 in afternoon trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange as investors took in the company’s lower quarterly results.For the quarter, Canadian Natural’s net income fell to $360 million, or 33 cents per share, or $836 million, or 76 cents per share a year earlier.Adjusted for unusual items, the company’s fourth-quarter earnings would have been $353 million, or 33 cents per share, compared to $719 million, or 65 cents per share a year earlier.Revenue after royalties was $3.54 billion, up from $3.29 billion.Canadian Natural is one of Canada’s biggest energy companies. Most of its production comes from Western Canada, but it also has operations in the North Sea and West Africa.The company has said keeping costs in check and ensuring quality will be more important when embarking on an expansion to its Horizon oilsands mine in northern Alberta than sticking to strict schedules. It has allowed itself the flexibility to stop and start construction as circumstances warrant.It’s a view fellow oilsands miner Suncor Energy Inc. (TSX:SU) has also taken, as industry players look to avoid some of the pitfalls that led to major cost overruns in the years leading up to the recession. Suncor has pushed back startup of its Fort Hills mine by a year and has said it might not go ahead with that and other projects if the economics don’t work.Note to readers: This is a corrected story; An earlier version had the incorrect 2011 results read more

On World Day UN agencies urge countering threats to cultural diversity

“Across the world, violent extremists have targeted cultural minorities and destroyed our shared heritage, to weaken the essential links between people and their history,” said Irina Bokova, the Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Marking the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, Ms. Bokova called for a new humanism for the 21st century, to renew the fundamental aspirations to justice, mutual understanding and dignity that guide all women and men. She quoted Martin Luther King Jr., saying: ‘injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.’ By embracing cultural diversity, the international community can more easily achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which draw upon “the strength and creative potential of humanity’s diversity of cultures.” Similarly, the Director-General of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), William Lacy Swing, urged Governments and their citizens to embrace migration, despite its challenges, and help to develop common understandings, values and perspectives.“It is sometimes asked whether the West’s multiculturalism, its diversity, has reached its limits? Can a society only cope with so much diversity? The answer is no. There has never been a city or a country brought down by too much ‘diversity,’” said Mr. Swing. IOM has compiled stories from some of the migrants with whom it has worked, highlighting their lives and journey, and how they are making their families and their new community better. The ‘I am a migrant’collection is available online. In today’s statement, Mr. Swing noted that all societies are so-called multi-ethnic because no single State lives with a single culture: “Even States averse to permitting entry to more ‘foreigners’ must acknowledge the multiple ‘cultures’ within their own borders. All countries have them: religious, ethnic, social, societal, sexual, occupational, educational, dietary specificities.” The World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in December 2002 and celebrated annually on 21 May, is meant to be an opportunity for mobilization on the part of governments, policy makers, civil society organizations, communities and cultural professionals to promote culture in its diversity and in all its forms. read more

Appeals court strikes down Calif ban on gay marriage

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO — Same-sex marriage moved one step closer to the Supreme Court on Tuesday when a federal appeals court ruled California’s ban unconstitutional, saying it serves no purpose other than to “lessen the status and human dignity” of gays.The OlympianThe bill to make Washington the seventh state to legally recognize same-sex marriages goes to a vote in the state House of Representatives starting at 1 p.m. Wednesday. Senate Bill 6239 already passed the Senate last week on a 28-21 vote. Gov. Chris Gregoire requested the measure and is expected to sign it soon.The historic House vote in Olympia comes as gay-marriages advocates won another round in court Tuesday in a California case.Opponents of gay marriage are gearing up to challenge SB 6239 with a referendum on the Nov. 6 ballot. Advocates with the evangelical Faith and Freedom Network, led by Gary Randall, and others plan a referendum once Gregoire signs it, and they face a June 6 deadline for signatures.A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals gave gay marriage opponents time to appeal the 2-1 decision before ordering the state to allow same-sex weddings to resume.“I’m ecstatic. I recognize that we have a ways to go yet. We may have one or two more legal steps,” said Jane Leyland, who was gathered with a small crowd outside the federal courthouse in downtown San Francisco, cheering as they learned of the ruling.last_img read more

Firefighters Landscaper in Pembroke Pines taken to hospital after possible lightning strike

first_imgPEMBROKE PINES, FLA. (WSVN) – A landscaper in Pembroke Pines was taken to the hospital after, firefighters said, he was possibly struck by lightning.The incident happened along Southwest 87th Way, north of Pembroke Road, just before 3 p.m., Wednesday.According to Pembroke Pines Fire Rescue, the man was working on a median and holding a shovel.Lightning was reported throughout Broward County, Wednesday afternoon.First responders said they did not find any obvious entrance or exit marks on the man and did not find burn marks on the ground from the possible strike, which fire officials said is unusual for a lightning strike.Hours later, fire officials said it is very likely the man was indirectly struck by lightning.Gisele Pean, who lives nearby, described what she heard. “I was inside the house when I heard the lightning,” she said. “It was like a really … like I was screaming like, ‘Oh, my God’ because it was like a big boom. When I came outside, the people was standing in front of my door because it was raining so hard. They’re standing in front of my door, and I ask them what happened. They said one of their co-workers went to get a shovel because they were leaving, and when he went and picked up the shovel, the lightning just strike him. He wasn’t saying anything, no. He wasn’t talking. He was just moving back and forth.”7 Skyforce hovered over a nearby home where the landscaper was possibly struck. A worker could be seen reenacting what had happened to his colleague.“That is dangerous,” Pean said. “It was really a big, big boom that happened. It was a big thing. Very frightening.”Fire rescue crews have transported the man to Memorial Regional Hospital after he went into cardiac arrest. His injuries are said to be life-threatening, and he remains inside the hospital’s intensive care unit.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

Body of Second Missing Kuskokwim Traveler Recovered

LeEco Lays Off Staff and Will Scale Back its US Presence

first_img This story originally appeared on PCMag LeEco, the Chinese tech conglomerate that began peddling its smartphones and TVs in the U.S. less than a year ago, on Tuesday announced plans to curtail its expansion, laying off hundreds of employees and all but eliminating its English-language marketing.The job cuts will hit the research and development staff in the company’s San Diego office the hardest, Bloomberg reported. Out of a staff of hundreds, only about 50 people will remain, mostly to provide support for current LeEco customers. Although the company did not announce an end to sales of its products in the U.S., it said that future marketing efforts would mostly be limited to the Chinese-speaking community. “In the past few months, we have gained a large foothold in Chinese-speaking households in the U.S. by offering tailor-made products and content for this community,” LeEco told Bloomberg. “We believe this provides us an opportunity to build on our strengths and grow from there.”Scaling back its English-language presence will relegate the company to a niche player in the U.S. market for consumer electronics, especially in the crowded TV and smartphone markets. LeEco once planned to buy TV maker Vizio, but that $2 billion deal fell through last month, with the company blaming “regulatory headwinds.”At a glitzy press conference last year in San Francisco, LeEco’s CEO took to the stage to announce the beginning of his company’s U.S. expansion, which he said would one day include electric bikes, self-driving cars and virtual reality headsets. But the future of those products could be in doubt even in LeEco’s home market of China, with Bloomberg reporting that the entire company will be restructured and that CEO, Jia Yueting, will give up day-to-day control.Many of LeEco’s products, including HDTVs, were still showing as in stock on the company’s website as of Tuesday afternoon, so if you’re eyeing one, you might want to click fast.

A glance at the Pakistanbased Haqqani network

first_imgQ: What is the Haqqani network’s relationship with Pakistan?A: Ties between Pakistan’s intelligence agency and the elder Haqqani stretch back to the Soviet war in Afghanistan. U.S. officials have accused Pakistan of continuing to support the group, but Islamabad has denied the allegation. The U.S. has demanded Pakistan target the Haqqani network in North Waziristan, but it has refused. Many analysts believe Pakistan is reluctant to target a group that could be a potential ally in Afghanistan after foreign forces withdraw.____AP Intelligence Writer Kimberly Dozier in Washington contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Q: What impact will the U.S. designation of the Haqqani network as a foreign terrorist organization have on the group?A: The designation requires U.S. financial institutions to freeze assets owned by the network and outlaws Americans from providing the group funds or material support. It can also prevent members of the group from traveling to the U.S. Analysts doubt the designation will have much of an impact on the group given the informal nature of its financing network and the lack of ties with the U.S. Many of the Haqqani network’s senior leaders have already been blacklisted individually, and that has seemingly had little effect.Q: What impact will the U.S. designation have on its relationship with Pakistan or the peace process in Afghanistan?A: The designation could further strain already troubled ties between the U.S. and Pakistan. It could also complicate U.S. efforts to strike a peace deal in Afghanistan because of the close ties between the Taliban and the Haqqani network. Pakistan has long criticized the U.S. for trying to fight and talk with militants at the same time, and the designation could feed into that narrative.Q: How many fighters make up the Haqqani network and how much violence are they responsible for in Afghanistan?

Don Shooter shows health improvement Top Stories center_img Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Comments   Share   A: The network is believed to be composed of several hundred core members and thousands of fighters with varying degrees of affiliation and loyalty, according to the Combating Terrorism Center in West Point, N.Y. A U.S. defense official estimated the group’s size at 2,000 to 4,000 militants. U.S. officials have told The Associated Press that the Haqqani network is responsible for less than 20 percent of all U.S. and NATO casualties in Afghanistan.Q: What is the Haqqani network’s relationship with the Taliban and al-Qaida?A: The Haqqani network has pledged allegiance to Taliban leader Mullah Omar, but the group largely operates independently. The elder Haqqani developed close ties to slain al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden during the Soviet war in Afghanistan when both of them spent months together on the front lines, according to the Washington-based New American Foundation. The network’s ties to al-Qaida and other foreign militant groups have remained strong, one of the reasons why it has become such a potent force in Afghanistan.Q: Does the Haqqani network pose a threat to the U.S. homeland?A: The U.S. intelligence community believes the Haqqani network is focused on attacking local enemies, with no aspirations to attack the United States, said a U.S. defense official. But the group’s ties with al-Qaida and other transnational militant groups are a concern to the U.S. Associated PressISLAMABAD (AP) – Some questions and answers about the Pakistan-based Haqqani network and the potential impact of the Obama administration’s decision to designate it a foreign terrorist organization:Q: What is the Haqqani network?A: The Haqqani network is considered one of the most dangerous militant groups fighting U.S.-led forces in Afghanistan, partly because of its record of carrying out high-profile attacks in the capital, Kabul. The group is based across the border in Pakistan’s North Waziristan tribal area but also has significant strength in eastern Afghanistan, the original home of the network’s founder, Jalaluddin Haqqani. He made a name for himself in the 1980s when he fought the Soviets in Afghanistan, with extensive support from U.S. and Pakistani intelligence agencies. He fled to Pakistan following the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in 2001. Haqqani is now believed to be in his 60s or older and has handed day-to-day operations of the group over to his son, Sirajuddin.last_img read more

How Dire Are Current Capacity Constraints

Following Federal Reserve Governor “”Elizabeth Duke’s””:http://www.federalreserve.gov/aboutthefed/bios/board/duke.htm “”comments””:https://themreport.com/articles/fed-governor-addresses-capacity-concerns-2013-03-11 earlier this week on the impact capacity constraints are having on the housing market, “”Capital Economics””:https://www.capitaleconomics.com/ released a brief market update Thursday with a similar focus. [IMAGE]Like Duke, Paul Diggle of Capital Economics identifies capacity constraints as “”one of the factors contributing to the marginal role being played by mortgage-dependent buyers.”” [COLUMN_BREAK]According to Diggle, “”[E]asing in capacity constraints is a necessary precondition to mortgage buyers playing a role in the housing recovery.”” Currently, the number of mortgage applications processed by an individual employee is near record-high levels, according to Capital Economics. The average application processing timeline is also “”historically high,”” according to the firm. Between 2005 and 2009, real estate credit employment plummeted 45 percent. At the same time, mortgage applications fell 75 percent. However, while applications have made somewhat of a comeback–nearly doubling since their crisis low–employment has risen a mere 7 percent. Diggle suggests a few reasons for the slow return in employment, including increased training costs resulting from new industry standards, put-back risk, and a belief among many that the refinance boom is temporary. However, with mortgage lending “”proving to be a very profitable area”” and funding costs remaining low, Diggle sees “”reasons to be optimistic.””last_img read more

Borrower Benefits Men Vs Women

first_img If you’re a man, it seems your home loan application has a greater chance of getting a green light than a woman’s in your same age range, so reports Ellie Mae’s latest Millennial Tracker, an interactive online tool that provides access to up-to-date demographic data points about homebuyers born between the years 1980 and 1999.Millennial men who were listed as the primary borrower for a loan gained approval for an average amount of $197,820 in October, the study notes. On the other hand, Millennial women got a go-ahead for an average loan amount of $186,567, or $11,253 less than Millennial men.All that data aside, while women got the nod for lower loan amounts, they closed their loans quicker. On the average, it took women 42 days to close, regardless of whether the loan was for a purchase or a refinance. Alternatively, men spent an average of 43 days to seal the deal on a purchase loan and 45 days for a refi. Additionally, women also were approved with lower FICO scores than men. For purchase loans, women had an average score of 721 versus 726 for men. Women who refinanced had an average FICO score of 730, while their male counterparts posted an average FICO score of 735.And all you single ladies, take note: Although males make up the larger percentage of overall Millennial borrowers, most of them are married, Ellie Mae reveals.“An interesting trend we’ve been tracking all year is that single women are buying homes much more than single men,” said Joe Tyrrell, EVP of Corporate Strategy at Ellie Mae. “Sixty percent of women who were listed as the primary borrower in October were single, compared to 42 percent of men.”As for where Millennial male and female primary borrowers were more likely to invest in a nest: Both cohorts have their hearts set on the Midwest, where housing costs continue to be attractive. Marshall, Minnesota; Victoria, Texas; and Lawton, Oklahoma, charted as the top three Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) for Millennial homebuyers in October.  Share December 7, 2017 636 Views Borrower Benefits: Men Vs.
