UN moves to unblock humanitarian aid to N Korea

first_imgThe UN Security Council is poised to back a US proposal aimed at removing some of the hurdles that tough sanctions on North Korea have thrown up in the way of delivering humanitarian aid, according to documents obtained by AFP.North Korea’s humanitarian crisis has left about 10 million people-nearly half of the population – undernourished, according to UN officials, who have reported a drop in food production last year.UN resolutions specify that sanctions should not affect humanitarian aid but relief organizations argue that strict trade and banking measures are creating bureaucratic obstacles and slowing down the flow of vital supplies.A US proposal put forward last month would provide clear instructions to aid organizations and governments to apply for UN sanctions exemptions for North Korea, according to the text seen by AFP.After weeks of negotiations, the UN sanctions committee is expected to give final approval to the new guidelines on Monday.Once approved, a notice will be sent to the UN’s 193 member-states by the committee “to provide a clear explanation of its comprehensive humanitarian exemption mechanism” which will “improve the delivery of humanitarian assistance to DPRK,” according to the documents.The move comes as the United States is calling for maximum pressure to be maintained against North Korea to compel Kim Jong Un to follow through on his pledge to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.After Russia and China urged the council to ease sanctions, US Ambassador Nikki Haley said the United Nations should not do “one thing” until North Korea takes action to dismantle its nuclear and missile programs.A US official said the guidelines would ensure that “only critical, life-saving humanitarian activities needed in North Korea can continue” and that requests for exemptions will undergo a detailed review.“The United States has been very clear that we will continue to enforce the current sanctions until we achieve the final, fully verified, denuclearization of North Korea,” said the official, speaking on background.Asked about the new guidelines, a Dutch official, speaking as the chair of the sanctions committee, said: “We want to make clear that this is about easing the process, not about easing the sanctions.”Unintended consequencesThe Security Council last year adopted three rafts of sanctions targeting North Korea’s economy in response to Pyongyang’s sixth nuclear test and a series of ballistic missile launches.Those sanctions ban North Korea’s exports of raw commodities while severely restricting imports of a range of goods and supplies of oil-vital for the country’s military.The measures have had a chilling effect, with UN agencies and aid organizations struggling to find partners willing to deal with the bureaucratic red tape from the tight sanctions regime on North Korea.“Economic sanctions are not supposed to have an impact on impartial humanitarian action. But they do. They have unintended consequences,” said Simon Schorno, the head of aid operations for the International Red Cross in Asia.“We haven’t seen the guidelines yet but we have been promised that they will speed up procedures, exemptions, and generally make processes run smoother. We’re hopeful that the guidelines will make carrying out our work easier,” he said.At a UN meeting last month, North Korean Deputy Ambassador Kim in Ryong complained that deliveries of medical equipment such as X-ray machines, anti-malaria insecticides and reproductive health kits had been held up for months.Kim said humanitarian aid was being “politicized” and argued that denying assistance to North Koreans in need was a violation of human rights.The United Nations is also facing a major funding shortfall for its aid operations in North Korea.An appeal for $111 million in funding for food, medicine and other basic needs for six million North Koreans has so far raised only $12 million — 10.9 per cent of the total amount needed.Only four countries have come forward with donations: Switzerland, Sweden, Canada and France.last_img read more

10 Things To Know Before The Astros Face The Dodgers In The

first_img Listen 00:00 /12:49 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Sharecenter_img Eric Christian Smith/AP PhotoJose Altuve holds the American League championship trophy after Game 7 of the ALCS against the New York Yankees Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017. The Astros are in Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers Tuesday night (Oct. 24) in Game 1 of the World Series after knocking off the Yankees in Game 7 of the ALCS on Saturday night at Minute Maid Park.The Astros are the first team to win a pennant in both leagues, having won the National League crown in 2005 before being swept by the White Sox in the Fall Classic. But, this time, fans are hoping for different results.Houston Matters had Jeff Balke give us a preview of the World Series. He writes for Houston Press and Houstonia Magazine.TEN THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THE ASTROS-DODGERS WORLD SERIES:Two best teams: This is the first time since 1970 that two teams with 100 wins or more will meet in the World Series. Slight edge on the mound: When it comes to pitching, Jeff Balke says the Dodgers have a slight advantage. Their starters are pretty even, but L.A.’s bullpen is definitely better, he says.Bullpen will be key: The Dodgers’ bullpen has been great in the postseason so far. Whether or not the Astros’ bats can get to that bullpen will play a big role in determining who wins this series.Potent bats: Balke says the Astros are a better team offensively in almost every category — at least when they’re playing their game. We’ll see how they fare against elite playoff pitching from the likes of Clayton Kershaw.Pitchers at the plate: For games in Los Angeles, the designated hitter will not be in effect. So Houston pitchers will have to bat — some of them for the first time in their careers — and that could break up the Astros’ normally potent lineup. But the good news is the Dodgers’ pitchers will have to hit too.Defensive edge: The Astros flashed some leather throughout the series, and, while Balke thinks both teams have great defense, the Astros have a slight edge, he says.Bats under wraps: Another major question will be whether the Astros can keep down some of the powerful bats near the top of the Dodgers’ lineup, such as Yasiel Puig and Justin Turner.All lined up: Despite needing seven tough games to knock off the Yankees, the Astros enter the series healthy and with their starting rotation basically normal. Dallas Keuchel will start Game 1 and Justin Verlander will start Game 2. Balke thinks Charlie Morton, one of the heroes of Game 7 of the ALCS, will likely get the start in Game 3.Unfamiliar territory: Jeff says, as a Houston sports fan, he’s not used to coming into a season (or a postseason) where people expected the Houston team to win — or at least truly have a shot. He says this is the first time since the Rockets’ NBA championships that a Houston team was seen by some as a favorite and has (so far) lived up to that promise.Going the distance: Jeff says this series will be a tightly contested one, and he picks the Astros to win in seven games.

Xbox One will launch on November 22 one week after the PS4

first_imgNot too long ago, we got word that the PlayStation 4 would release to the world starting in North America on November 15 of this year, giving everyone a little bit of time to secure a console for the coming holidays. We knew the Xbox One would release sometime in November, but we didn’t know whether it would land before or after the PS4. Today, Microsoft officially announced that the Xbox One would release one week after the PS4, on November 22.The console will launch in 13 markets initially, which include the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Austria, Brazil, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain. Though the console has sold out of pre-orders, Microsoft has made some new launch consoles available. This announcement follows the news that Microsoft has bumped the Xbox One’s CPU by around 10% in power, from 1.6GHz to 1.75GHz. Not too long ago, Microsoft also gave the console’s GPU a modest boost in power — 53MHz — from 800MHz to 853MHz.The November 22 date holds importance for Microsoft and Xbox fans alike, as the Xbox 360 was released on that very day (in the United States and Canada) back in 2005. It’s a little jarring when you realize that was eight years ago, and the PS3 and Xbox 360 almost lived up to that desired 10-year cycle both Sony and Microsoft claimed they would.The Xbox One will retail for $499 — one of the only aspects of the console that Microsoft has not yet changed since the initial, disastrous reveal.last_img read more

Senior travel booms in China with Yangtze a popular spot

first_imgThe tour was organized by the Shanghai Xiehe Tourism Agency, with the ship run by the state-owned Chongqing Eastern Shipping Corp., which specializes in Yangtze River travel. The ship, the Eastern Star, was plying the river upstream from Nanjing near the eastern coast all the way inland to Chongqing, a trip of 10 days and about 870 miles (1,400 kilometers).There are many versions of senior-friendly trips designed for different income groups, with some low-cost options charging 3,000 yuan, or about $480, for five days on Hainan island, not including airfare, said Beijing travel agent Qi Chun Guan. For Yangtze River travel, most groups fly into the metropolis of Chongqing and then travel downstream to the city of Yichang, Qi said.“Before, the elderly saved all their money,” Qi said. “Now, they want to go out and see the rest of the world. These people have seen their share of suffering in their lives. Now, with economic development, it’s so different from previous generations.”The boom in travel has been one economic bright spot to a graying population that’s presenting China with one of its most serious policy challenges.With U.N. data showing the number of Chinese over age 65 projected to almost double to 210 million people by 2030, the country’s retirement system will struggle to keep up, especially as China’s one-child policy limits the number of working-age people who can pay for the pensions and meager benefits of their elders, said Yong Cai, an assistant sociology professor at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

Then there was the most grandiose of China’s landscapes — the mythic brown waters of the Yangtze River and its mist-enveloped Three Gorges.center_img “If you have the money, you go out and play,” Shu said. “I’ve learned to like it.”Copyright © The Associated Press.

Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Over the decades, Li survived such horrors of 20th century Chinese history as the man-made famines that killed more than 30 million people in the late 1950s and the political anarchy of the Cultural Revolution that followed. Now, as she and hundreds of other seniors danced, played cards and chatted Thursday in the winding walkways of Beijing’s Temple of Heaven, Li said it was her time to play.“We are fortunate in China that we can travel, and I’ve seen so much,” the 60-year-old woman said. “We’re all traveling now to a lot of places.”Travel agencies and packages catering to elderly Chinese say business is booming, amid overall growth in the country’s travel industry. The number of senior tourists in China jumped by 58 percent last year compared to 2013, according to the state-run China Daily newspaper, and 62 percent of Chinese senior citizens join organized tours.One such tour ended tragically Monday night when a river cruiser carrying more than 450 people, mostly elderly tourists, capsized in a heavy storm in the Yangtze. By Saturday, nearly 400 have been confirmed dead, making the capsizing the deadliest maritime tragedy to hit China since the country’s civil war seven decades earlier.

Elderly women known as “dancing grannies” fill the parks of many cities with their music and dance routines. Enormous groups of seniors are also regular sights at Chinese tourist attractions such as Beijing’s Forbidden City.Among the most popular domestic destinations for elderly Chinese are the southeastern coastal province of Fujian and central Sichuan province, where the Eastern Star cruise ship was headed Monday when it overturned, Qi said.He said travel along the Yangtze has fallen since the world’s biggest hydroelectric project, the Three Gorges Dam, opened in 2012 and flooded historic sites and scenic canyons.One 55-year-old property manager, who would only identify himself by his family name of Shu, said he took two-day trips to towns around Beijing with other older Chinese, paying 600 yuan, or about $100, for each excursion. On Thursday, he strolled along the Temple of Heaven’s historic covered walkway, protected from the rain and taking in the fresh air, part of what he said was his semi-retired morning routine.last_img read more
