DR of Congo UNICEF envoy calls for an end to rape of

“The world must stop the horror and help the survivors. And those responsible must be brought to justice,” Ms. Lange said yesterday in London, where she just returned from a trip to the war-torn country. “Of the women and children who survive the stunning brutality, the physical, emotional and psychological damage will last a lifetime.”Last week, Ms. Lange visited eastern Congo on a four-day trip focused on sexual exploitation and rape and where she met with children and women affected by the conflict.UNICEF said combatants of all armed groups in the DRC have committed brutal and sometimes systematic rape and other forms of sexual violence. Women and girls are often raped during military operations as a form of punishment for allegedly “supporting the enemy” and to instil shame and fear within the community. Husbands, fathers and children are sometimes forced to watch.”It is overwhelming to witness their tremendous humanity in the face of such unspeakable brutality and the courage and strength with which they are facing the future,” Ms. Lange said.The lethal combination of high rates of HIV among soldiers and the massive number of rapes in eastern Congo means a possible death sentence for raped girls and women. Data from the Panzi hospital in Bukavu indicates that approximately 27 per cent of rape victims tested positive for HIV, according to UNICEF.The conflict in DRC is one of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis and the most deadly war ever documented in Africa. It has claimed an estimated 3.3 million lives since 1998 – mostly women, children and the elderly. read more

More fun than an arrow in the knee The 10 best Skyrim

first_imgIt has been a little over a month since Bethesda launched the latest edition of its Elder Scrolls franchise. With many gamers asking Santa to drop off a copy underneath the tree we thought it would be a good time to give you our top ten mods to enhance the Skyrim experience. This way after you’ve ripped the game open on Christmas, (or if you already own the game), you will be well armed with code that will increase the quotient of epic the title contains.1 – Tytanis – The Ultimate ModSorting through the hundreds of available mods for Skyrim can be a daunting task, especially when you are new to the game. The Tytanis Mod seeks to put an end to the confusion by combining as many of the most useful additions and tweaks centering around in-game crafting in one place. More importantly, it also adds new spells, tomes, and equipment to your crafting abilities. Want to whip up an undead dragon to fight at your side for sixty seconds or so? Not a problem since you can craft the tome to allow you do that using Tytanis.Be warned, this mod doesn’t play well with other crafting mods, and has some issues with updates from Bethesda. The dev on the project is very active however, and takes care of issues quickly.2 – Thu’uMicWe covered this mod a little bit ago and have added it to the list because it’s quickly become one of our favorites. As we mentioned before, this is a mod that should have been in the game from the start. It gives you the ability to use your voice to “cast” dragon shouts in game, making combat a much smoother experience. You no longer have to pause to switch which shout you want to use against a foe. No Kinect or other special device is needed, just a simple microphone hooked up to your computer. The installation has some dependencies, so make sure you have everything you need to make it work.3 – Make your Skyrim map 3D (like Google Streetview)The world map in Skyrim is already a pretty nice visual, but by installing this mod players can turn it into a 3D powerhouse as seen in Google Streetview. It’s incredibly helpful when trying to find landmarks for specific quests. This is a must-have mod.4 – Glowing ore veinsWhile not containing the “wow” factor of the other members of the list, the glowing ore vein mod is indispensable, especially to gamers that plan on mining and smelting ore to create weapons. The original textures of ore veins in the game are pretty dull, which can make them hard to see (which may be part of the intended mechanic). This add-in simply takes those textures and makes them much easier for a player to spot. A simple change, but one that can help tremendously during the hunt for precious metals.5 – Homage to the Legend of ZeldaWe can assure that the picture above isn’t photoshopped, that indeed is someone’s Skyrim character wielding the Master Sword and Hylian shield from the Legend of Zelda series. We found this mod to be very interesting indeed as it’s not that big of a stretch to imagine the world of Skyrim is the legendary land of Hyrule. The best part of the mod is that it’s an easy install that users of all levels can get working on their rigs. 1 2last_img read more

Inside the 2016 Athens Democracy Forum

first_imgThe fourth annual Athens Democracy Forum wrapped up last Sunday, after four days of discussion, debate, contemplation (and leisure) under the Greek sun. The yearly event has become one of the staples of the Athenian calendar, bringing together politicians, policy-makers, journalists, scholars and experts from the fields of business, finance and technology to explore the challenges to liberal democracy and ways to face them.Organised by The New York Times under the auspices of H.E. the President of the Hellenic Republic Mr Prokopios Pavlopoulos (and with Neos Kosmos as one of the media partners), the 2016 ADF focused on migration. L-R: The New York Times columnist Roger Cohen , Kenneth Roth, director of Human Rights Watch and Dimitris Avramopoulos, European Commissioner for Migration, at the Stoa of Attalos.The forum’s main theme was stated as ‘Religion, Migration, Power and Money’. Staged among the Greek capital’s historic landmarks, the key themes tackled included: Is democracy good for business? Is liberal democracy compatible with religion? Should the major institutions of global governance be reformed, or scrapped? Do terrorist attacks justify giving greater powers to security forces? The forum allowed for challenging panel discussions, debates and interviews, while gaining crucial insights into our brave new world. Participants connected with global leaders for an unparalleled experience of diverse events in the birthplace of democracy.L-R: Yasheng Huang, professor of global economics and management at the M.I.T. Sloan School of Management and Ross LaJeunesse, global head of free expression and international relations of Google, listen to the arguments of Yanis Varoufakis, co-initiator of DiEM25 and former finance minister of Greece.Among the highlights of the four-day event was the appearance via ‘Google Hangout’ of whistleblower Edward Snowden, who argued that privacy is more important than freedom of speech in a discussion with Kenneth Roth, director of Human Rights Watch, who was also presented with the Democracy Award of the City of Athens. Paul Krugman, Nobel laureate economist and columnist for The New York Times, repeated his views that Greece would be far better off if it left the euro currency and returned to drachma. He also moderated a panel on democracy and business, featuring Yanis Varoufakis, who blamed EU leadership for not responding appropriately to the financial crisis and the failing bank sector. European commissioner on migration Dimitris Avramopoulos admitted that the EU needs Turkey in order to handle the refugee influx, while Roth urged against the demonising of migrants, which is a rising phenomenon in many western countries. After an initial two-day succession of panels in various places in Athens, the ADF then moved to the luxury resort of Costa Navarino in the Peloponnese, for a weekend of leisure activities and ecotourism, with a panel on the interaction between democracy and architecture. Videos of the panels, addresses and discussions that took place during this idea-filled four-day event, can be found online, at the official Athens Democracy Forum website: www.athensdemocracyforum.com/ Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Federal Court Rules Texas Strict Voter ID Law Unconstitutional Orders Changes Before

first_imgA federal appeals court has ruled that Texas’ strict voter id law violates the voting rights act and has ordered changes before the November 8th presidential election. The ruling was issued Wednesday by the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The ruling instructs a lower court to make changes that fix the “discriminatory effect” of the 2011 law in the months leading up to this fall’s election.Houston Public Media’s Coverage of Election 2016But the ruling said the lower court should make changes that disrupt this year’s election season as little as possible.In 2014, U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos of Corpus Christi wrote a 147-page opinion finding the law was discriminatory and should be struck down. Texas then filed an appeal.The Obama administration took the unusual step of deploying the weight of the U.S. Justice Department into the case when it challenged the law.Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton released the following statement on the ruling:“It is imperative that the State government safeguards our elections and ensures the integrity of our democratic process. Preventing voter fraud is essential to accurately reflecting the will of Texas voters during elections, and it is unfortunate that this common-sense law, providing protections against fraud, was not upheld in its entirety.”U.S. Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch released the following statement about the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling:“I am pleased with today’s decision by the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit holding that Texas’s 2011 photographic voter identification law violates Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. This decision affirms our position that Texas’s highly restrictive voter ID law abridges the right to vote on account of race or color and orders appropriate relief before yet another election passes.”The ACLU previously filed an amicus (friend of the court) brief in Veasey v. Abbott, the case challenging Texas’ voter ID law.Rebecca L. Robertson, the legal and policy director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Texas released the following statement:“We’re delighted that the 5th Circuit has determined — once again – that Texas’ discriminatory photo voter ID law has the effect of disenfranchising hundreds of thousands of minority voters in the Lone Star State while doing precisely nothing to prevent voter fraud. This law was nothing less than a brazen and transparent attempt to keep people of color out of the voting booth. The case now goes back to the district judge to fashion a remedy that will make it easier for qualified Texans to cast their ballots this fall and we’re hopeful the result will be more fair.”Under the law, there are seven acceptable forms of government-issued photo IDs:A Texas Driver’s licenseA free Texas election identification certificate (EIC)A Texas personal ID cardA Texas license to carry a concealed handgunA U.S. military ID cardA U.S. citizenship certificateA U.S. passport Sharelast_img read more

Inflatable electric car can drive off cliffs

first_imgIt’s hard to say what the most intriguing thing about XP Vehicles’ inflatable car is. Maybe it’s that the car can travel for up to 2,500 miles on a single electric charge (the distance across the US is roughly 3,000 miles). “Research shows that the metal in your car is the largest cause of death and injury,” the company explains on its Web site. “The shrapnel, body compression immobility, lung compression, dismemberment and other serious results of a crash are most often caused by the inflexibility of metal and the permanent deformation of the body of the metal car around or into your body. Hence the need for, and name of, the Jaws of Life.”For another thing, the car won´t “blow off the road,” due to a special ballast and aerodynamic design features which make the car very stable. An inflatable car might even provide additional safety measures in certain circumstances, such as if someone were to accidentally drive it off a cliff – although the company says that it´s not intended for this use.If you´re concerned that an inflatable car may be too tempting for a tire-slashing juvenile delinquent, XP Vehicles says that their car bodies are actually pretty difficult to pierce. The cars have multiple chambers, so a single slice wouldn´t pop it like a balloon – “somebody would really have to go at it” to cause major damage, the company says. And, in the case of vandalism, you can repair it yourself. Whether it´s legal to drive an inflatable car on the road will depend on local ordinances, which dealers or individual buyers will be responsible for knowing. But, as XP Vehicles estimates a $200 billion market for alternative energy vehicles, changes in regulations seem inevitable.XP Vehicles is not releasing specific vehicle data until an official launch, which will be announced after the company receives various safety certification papers.More information: http://www.xpcarteam.comvia: Gizmodo Or maybe it’s the fact that you buy the car online, it gets shipped to you in two cardboard boxes, and the estimated assembly time is less than two hours. Perhaps it’s that the car is made out of “airbags” – the same polymer materials used to cushion NASA’s rovers when they landed on Mars. Then again, it could be the company’s claim that you can drive the car off a cliff without serious injury, and that it will float in a flood or tsunami.Together, these features characterize the Whisper, XP Vehicles’ solution to the oil crisis. The company doesn’t expect the car to be in production until 2010 at the earliest, but when it is, it will hopefully be an extremely affordable $10,000 or less. XP Vehicles envisions four body styles, along with a special low-priced model for the Southeast Asian market.As the San Francisco-based start-up explains on its Web site, the miracle behind the 2,500-mile range is a “hot-swap XPack Multi-Core Battery/Fuel Cell power plant” invented by the founders of XP Vehicles. Or, without the hot-swap technology, the car can travel up to 300 miles on a single charge, thanks to its light weight. XP Vehicles hopes to have a prototype developed by the end of the year, and will begin working on built-to-order vehicles for its OEM partners only. Later, it plans to sell to dealers, who will assemble the vehicle before selling to consumers. In the future, individuals may also order online, pick out their desired features as if customizing a PC, and receive the car by a common carrier. Options will include iPod mounts, 20 colors, trim, decals, roof/no roof, car covers, solar mounts, stereos, integrated pumps, home connections, GPS, battery clubs, alarms, and more. Two adults with a high school education should be able to unpack and inflate the car in less than two hours, according to the company. And, if you don´t have enough room in the garage, some models even fold up after assembly for storage. Other models “can change bodies” (details on that are sparse).Different models of the car will be made of various polymers, carbon fiber, and/or other strong, ultra-light-weight materials – the same stuff that protected the Mars rovers´ sensitive electronics as they fell and bounced along the planet´s surface. XP Vehicles claims that the car will be one of the safest on the road for drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

In The Herd Jason Terry confirms rift between Dwight Howard and GM

first_imgIn one year, the Houston Rockets went from playing in the Western Conference Finals to getting bounced in the first round by the Steph Curry-less Warriors.Rockets Point Guard, and 17 year NBA Veteran, Jason Terry was in The Herd today. He provided a firsthand look into the Rockets difficult season and the internal struggle between GM Daryl Morey and superstar Dwight Howard.Guest host Nick Wright asked Terry about Howard’s recent comments that he and Morey were at odds this season over Howard’s offensive role with the team.  Terry was brutally honest about the rift.“That was one of things that was hurtful to [Howard] and he couldn’t understand it. But I said ‘Dwight, listen, at some point in your career, you’re gonna have to decide, do you want to become a champion?’ If becoming a champion means set more screens, roll harder to the basket, run the floor more, then that’s what you’re gonna have to do.”Terry said the power struggle between Morey and Howard was rooted in a difference in offensive philosophy.“Daryl Morey didn’t say ‘We’re not gonna give you [Howard] the ball.’ We’re just not gonna give it to you in the post, because that’s not our style of play.”Terry also weighed in on the NBA Playoffs. He picked the red hot Cavs to win the title.  He said LeBron James is still the best player in the league.“If I had to start a team today, I would definitely be starting it with LeBron James.” Advertisementlast_img read more
