(Colombo Gazette) The United States was this week briefed on the latest developments taking place in the reconciliation process in the country, the Foreign Ministry said today.Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Dr. Harsha de Silva was on a brief visit to the US capital to continue Sri Lanka’s expanding engagement with the United States on multiple areas of cooperation. During his conversations, the Deputy Minister briefed the officials on recent developments in Sri Lanka with respect to reconciliation as well as economic and investment policy reforms.Recalling the government’s twin policy objectives of reconciliation and development, he reiterated the Government’s aim to ensure a peace dividend for the people, for the country to progress toward enduring peace and development. The US Government officials acknowledged the vast progress Sri Lanka has made since the Government came into office last year.The Foreign Ministry said that the regular visits by high level US officials to Sri Lanka mirror the interest and the potential for multifaceted engagement with the United States in the burgeoning bilateral relationship.Ongoing cooperation with Sri Lanka under the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) since December 2015 is yet another important element of US bilateral development assistance to Sri Lanka. During his meetings he requested the US Government to urge American businesses to invest in Sri Lanka. This was emphasized at several bilateral discussions he held with U.S. officials in Washington D.C, the Foreign Ministry said. read more

Dylan Moses, an eighth-grader from Baton Rouge, La., must be an amazing talent, for the middle-schooler received a scholarship offer from the No. 1 program in the country, Alabama.The 2017 running back prospect also was offered a scholarship by LSU last summer. He and his father, Edward Moses Jr., visited the Crimson Tide campus, and the 6-foot-1, 215-pound Moses was impressed.“For Dylan, excitement spilled over,” Moses Jr. said to ESPN. “When he heard those words from coach (Nick) Saban, ‘We’re offering you,’ you could see him light up. It was shocking because we were going in thinking we were just going to get a tour of what Alabama has to offer.“To hear, ‘You’re impressive, keep your grades up, we want you to come here, and we’re offering you a scholarship now,’ I can’t even put that into words.”It’s not the first time Alabama has offered a scholarship to a younger recruit, and it doesn’t happen very often.The Tide offered current 2013 signee Tim Williams as well as 2014 ESPN Watch List running back Leonard Fournette scholarships when they were both freshmen.Still, Moses might be the first eighth-grader to receive an Alabama offer. Other schools haven’t started showing interest yet, but his father anticipates things to pick up in the spring and summer. For now, Alabama and LSU have the early advantage.“The battle for Dylan internally is who would be the best fit,” Moses Jr. said. “Right now, he’s an eighth-grader, he doesn’t have to worry about that.“We have LSU right here. They have access to us. At Alabama, we know what they have over there with the great running backs and another first-rounder on the way. Those two schools are No. 1, and everybody else is 2, 3, 4 and 5.”The offer from the Tide and the earlier offer from LSU has the 2017 phenom on top of the world, but his father knows it’s his job to keep him grounded through the recruiting process. After all, he still has four years before he signs his national letter of intent.“The attention from those levels of institutions, No. 1 and No. 2 in the SEC and arguably in the country, he feels like a boss, like he’s untouchable,” Moses Jr. said. “We have to bring him back on down to earth, let him know that he still has to do his work down here to make sure that dream comes true.” read more

Brendan Rodgers was disappointed as his side lost 3-2 on aggregate.Brendan Rodgers warned his side that the third qualifying round tie in the Olympic Stadium was his biggest qualifying challenge they would after the 1-1 draw in the first leg in Scotland last week.However, it took only six minutes for his side to go behind, thanks to a Rodrigo Galo strike.Things got worse for the visitors when Croatian striker Marko Livaja headed in a second goal just five minutes into the second half.Substitute Scott Sinclair scored in the 78th minute for Celtic to reduce the deficit a goal, but the Scottish champions could not score a second goal which would have helped them qualified on away goals.Leicester City, Manchester UnitedMatch Preview: Manchester United vs Leicester City Boro Tanchev – September 13, 2019 Old Trafford is the venue for the Premier League encounter between Manchester United and Leicester City, which kicks off at 16:00 (CET) on Saturday.And Brendan Rodgers was far from pleased with his side’s defending in Greece. Daily Star reports.Speaking to the press after the game, he said: “Over the course of the two games it’s disappointing to have that much control and opportunities in the games and concede soft goals,”“We gave ourselves a chance with a goal at the end and we threw everything at it.””I thought a lot of our build-up play in that final third was worthy of something from the game.“But you can’t defend that softly and in the end, we were punished for it.“This is the competition we want to be in and qualification is getting even harder now.“But I still felt this was a game with our play and the qualities that we had more than enough to win.”last_img read more

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, October 18, 2017 – Kingston – Attorneys and accused persons are being strongly urged to take advantage of the Supreme Court’s second installment of the Sentence Reduction Day initiative on Thursday and Friday this week.   On October 19, the programme will be made available at the Home Circuit and Gun Court Division of Kingston and St. Andrew, and on October 20 at the St. Catherine Circuit Court.The Sentence Reduction Day initiative provides an opportunity for accused persons to enter a guilty plea and benefit from a maximum of up to 50 per cent reduction in their sentence, according to the provisions of the Criminal Justice Administration Amendment Act, 2015.In an interview with JIS News, Deputy Registrar with the Criminal Division of the Supreme Court, Tamsyn Bailey, said while an accused person can normally benefit from a reduction in his sentence under the legislation, he would have to make the plea by a specific time in his case.“If they missed the opportunity when they would have been entitled to that 50 per cent discount, on the [Sentence Reduction] days, they have [a second chance].   Even on the day in question, if persons wish to plead guilty, they will be allowed to do so,” she said, adding that the amount of reduction in the sentence will be dependent on the circumstances of the case.“I would implore accused persons, if you are guilty, to avail yourselves of this opportunity,” she urged.The Sentence Reduction Day programme, first done on May 22, is being implemented by the Criminal Case Management Steering Committee, which has as its mandate the implementation of policies and strategies that are geared towards the administration of justice in a timely manner in all the courts.   The initiative was implemented as a measure to reduce the large number of cases pending trial.Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, Andrea Martin-Swaby, cited the value of the programme to the reduction of the backlog.   She said the Home Circuit Court, which serves Kingston and St. Andrew, has in excess of 800 cases awaiting trial, while the St. Catherine Circuit Court Division has in excess of 400 cases.“Entering a plea of guilt has always been viewed by the courts as a sign of remorse, and the court has always, in my experience, been lenient to the sentencing of persons who plead guilty,” she said.Mrs. Martin-Swaby noted that several factors are taken into account when sentencing, and that there are other options outside of prison terms available to the judge, such as a suspended sentence, probation or a monetary fine.Through his attorney, an accused person can indicate his intention to utilise the initiative to the registry of the Home Circuit and Gun Courts or the Criminal Registry of the Supreme Court, and to the clerk of the court at the St. Catherine Parish Court before 10:00 a.m. on the day.The Sentence Reduction Day programme is expected to be eventually rolled out at courts in all parishes.Release: JIS Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

The rapid rate of development in Sihanoukville, primarily relating to new casino resorts funded by Chinese investment, has become a major point of contention in recent years amid concerns over growing violence and widespread pollution.In March, officials ordered the closure of the Jin Ding Hotel and Casino following multiple complaints that the resort was flushing raw sewage straight into the sea.Nevertheless, the Deputy Director-General at the Ministry of Finance’s financial industry department, Ros Phearun, told the Khmer Times this week that the growing number of casinos “reflects the increase in tourists, particularly Chinese.“We have granted a lot of licenses, but there are actually only 51 casinos in operation,” he added. “The rest are now being built, while some have halted operations.”Phearun, said the government was expecting to collect around US$70 million from the gaming industry in 2019, up from US$46 million last year.The Cambodian government is currently working on a draft gaming bill, the Law on the Management of Integrated Resorts and Commercial Gambling, aimed at refining regulation of the industry.last_img read more

first_img Road Trip 2019 In 1995, I visited the Russian nuclear weapons city of Sarov. Here, I’m showing a copy of the newspaper where I worked at the time, the Los Alamos Monitor, to physicist Viktor Adamsky, who helped design the Tsar Bomba — the most powerful nuclear weapon ever exploded. Stephen Shankland/CNET Military I spent more than five years as a reporter in Los Alamos, New Mexico, birthplace of the atomic bomb, home to a major national laboratory, and the 18,000-person town where I grew up. I covered everything from President Bill Clinton visiting the lab to mostly harmless radioactive cat poop triggering radiation alarms at the county landfill. But the story that made the biggest impression on me took place thousands of miles away, in Russia.In May 1995, I was part of a seven-person civilian delegation that traveled to Los Alamos sister city Sarov, about 230 miles east of Moscow. It’s the home of the institute where Russia developed its first atomic bomb. Our visit was timed to coincide with a 50th anniversary celebration of the end of the Great Patriotic War, aka World War II, which for the Russians ended when the Germans capitulated in May 1945.It was a sobering visit — the economic devastation; the Soviet-era microphones bugging away in our hotel; the angry and impoverished veterans; and the daunting quantities of vodka, champagne and cognac that accompanied us during a weeklong series of banquets. I spoke with Viktor Adamsky, one of the designers of the biggest nuclear bomb of all time, the 50-megaton Tsar Bomba, which was more powerful than all the bombs dropped in World War II.I’m remembering it now because I’ve recently interviewed Siegfried Hecker, former director of Los Alamos National Laboratory and a key leader of the US-Russian lab collaboration that led to my trip. Back when US-Russian relations were thawingDuring the time of my trip, relations between Russia and the US were warming, but now they’re cooling once again. That troubles Hecker — even though he spent much of his career designing the nuclear weapons the US aimed at the then-USSR.It troubles me, as well. I grew up during the Cold War, and I’m not eager to introduce my children to concepts like nuclear winter and megadeath. And even as treaties between the US and Russia fizzle out and the two countries rev up another arms race, worries are piling up about the nuclear weapons capabilities of Iran and North Korea, too.But Hecker stresses the similarities between the US and Russia — “They’re so much like us,” he says — and what was most interesting on my 1995 trip was the cultural connection between Los Alamos and Sarov. There was a clear kinship between the cities’ researchers — a curious camaraderie given that those very researchers designed the warheads perched atop ICBMs aimed at each other.A Russian in the nuclear weapons design city of Sarov in 1995 gave me this medal -- the Order of the Badge of Honor -- as a token of goodwill after the Cold War ended. The Soviet Union awarded the medal for achievements in labor, culture and science.A Russian in the nuclear weapons design city of Sarov in 1995 gave me this medal — the Order of the Badge of Honor — as a token of goodwill after the Cold War ended. The Soviet Union awarded the medal for achievements in labor, culture and science. Stephen Shankland/CNET Each city benefited from its government’s largesse during the Cold War. “When I first came here, I thought it was a paradise. Such food!” one Sarov man told me. Meanwhile, Los Alamos received a federal funding boost for its schools and its police and fire departments. Each city suffered when government funding dropped with the end of the Cold War. Both cities teem with elite researchers who play important military roles and are curious about what makes the universe tick. Both cities have nuclear weapons museums showing off the hulking casings of early bombs.Even the names of the cities had a parallel. When I visited, Sarov still went by its Cold War name of Arzamas-16 — a bit of geographic misdirection to make it look like it was part of a nothing-special city that actually is 30 miles northeast. During World War II, mail for Manhattan Project researchers in Los Alamos was addressed to P.O. Box 1663 in Santa Fe, about the same distance away from Los Alamos as Arzamas is from Sarov.Lab-to-lab collaborationMy trip was an outgrowth of the US-Russia nuclear collaboration undertaken by Hecker and his colleagues after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The effort, funded by the Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction Program, saw US and Russian scientists working on joint research and helping to get a grip on the vast quantities of Soviet-era nuclear weapons materials.I understood the political appeal of the program. For would-be terrorists or countries aspiring to join the nuclear weapons club, the hardest step is obtaining potent plutonium or weapons-grade uranium. Paying Russians to better control those materials — and to discourage scientists from looking for new jobs elsewhere — made sense for US foreign policy.Russian nuclear bomb museum in SarovSarov, called Arzamas-16 during the Cold War, is home to a museum showing several historic Russian nuclear bombs. I’m second from left. Stephen Shankland/CNET But seeing Sarov firsthand showed me the human side of the program’s benefits.After the economic crisis that accompanied the demise of the USSR, Sarov residents had to grow potatoes in their window flower boxes and turn their countryside dachas into small farms. A typical scientist’s salary at the time was about $80 per month, as the ruble collapsed in value. Hardest hit by the end of the Cold War were elderly World War II veterans thrust back onto the job market after their pensions became worthless. The security fence around Sarov came to be enjoyed as a way to keep away the outsiders who’d had it even worse.Like Hecker, I visited Russians in their homes. After attending the World War II memorial around which our visit centered, I slipped off with some journalists from Sarov’s City Courier newspaper. They introduced me to their children, spoke of using surreptitious “samizdat” publications to disseminate information in the Soviet years, taught me how to spell my name in Cyrillic (Стѳфѳн Шѳнкланд), and told me how they cobbled together rafts for weeks-long descents of Siberian rivers. One gave me a present symbolic of US-Russian cooperation: a massive hand-cranked drill, made in Massachusetts but given to Russians in World War II and used during the German siege of Leningrad.In short, they showed me they were human.Personal connectionsI feel a more personal connection to Russia myself, too. In 1995, I met Boris Nemtsov, a reform-minded politician who then led the nearby Nizhny Novgorod (named Gorky in the Soviet era) region and earned a Ph.D. in physics. Among his policies was a “meter by meter” privatization push that let people gradually buy their apartments from the state. The discussion felt a lot more forward-looking than seeing Lenin’s waxy corpse in Moscow’s Red Square.Sarov's City Courier newspaper from 1995 chronicles the visit of Stephen Shankland (center photo, holding newspaper) and others from Los Alamos, New Mexico, to the Russian nuclear weapons design city.Enlarge ImageSarov’s City Courier newspaper from 1995 chronicled the visit I and others from Los Alamos, New Mexico, paid to the Russian nuclear weapons design city. I’m in the center photo, showing the newspaper to some students. Stephen Shankland/CNET Nemtsov rose to become a national reform leader, willing to speak out against President Vladimir Putin. But in 2015, Nemtsov was assassinated on a bridge in Moscow. I felt it more closely than an “ordinary” episode of political violence.And I felt the same tie when five Sarov scientists were killed in a Russian missile test explosion this month.Hecker has a lot more of those connections. He’s friends with plenty of Russians and sees their cultural values as very similar to ours. And he’s keeping his communication links alive even though the US-Russia lab-to-lab collaboration project he helped begin is now all but dead. He’ll take his 57th trip to Russia in November.The two countries can move past sticking points like NATO’s eastward expansion and Russia’s military action in the Crimea and eastern Ukraine, Hecker says. Today’s nationalistic fervor might make it hard to defrost the relationship, but seeing the world from the other side’s perspective will help, he says.”There is absolutely no need for Russia and the US to be adversaries and enemies,” Hecker tells me. “Absolutely none.” 5 Sci-Techcenter_img Tags This story is part of Road Trip 2019, profiles of the troublemakers and trailblazers who are designing our future.

first_imgBy ALISON GRAHAM, The Roanoke Times undefinedLEXINGTON, Va. (AP) — She rested beneath packed earth for more than 100 years in an unmarked grave. Someone must have known her name — her family, friends, maybe the person who buried her.But when those people died, so did the last living memory of the woman so long buried near the corner of Nelson and Randolph Streets.In 2008, a construction crew pulled her bones from the earth and she entered the 21st century nameless.In this May 19, 2019 photo, Lexington City Councilwoman Marilyn Alexander lays a flower on the coffin of “Ancient Jane,” a woman whose remains were found during construction of the county courthouse in Lexington, Va. in 2008. The city reburied her in Evergreen Cemetery on Sunday in a coffin built by Pat Harris, a local woodworker. Photo taken May 19. (Alison Graham/The Roanoke Times via AP)And on May 19, that’s how she returned — “Unknown African American woman, died ca. 1800’s” will mark her new gravesite at Evergreen Cemetery in Lexington.She’s less than a mile from where she was found during excavation of the Rockbridge County Courthouse and just a little farther from Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetery, named for the famed Confederate general who is buried there beneath a larger-than-life memorial and statue.Churches, museums, hotels, shopping centers and the local hospital are named for Jackson and Confederate General Robert E. Lee, who is also buried in the city. But few things are named for the African Americans who helped build Lexington into what it is today.“This discovery may not have been a war hero, but we know she was certainly someone’s child,” City Councilwoman Marilyn Alexander said. “She was certainly someone’s hero.”“Ancient Jane,” as she’s come to be known around the city, was buried after a simple, 30-minute ceremony. People spoke about what is known: she was an 18- to 23-year-old African American woman who died sometime in the 1800s.But most people spoke about what is unknown: who she was, how she died or how she lived her life. She could have been enslaved. She could have walked free and worked in town. She could have had children. She could have lived with her family or a husband. She might have even been murdered when the Ku Klux Klan rode through town in 1867 for what was described as “a bloody hour.”“Her skeletal remains reveal very little about her and invite us to imagine the circumstances of her life,” Washington and Lee University Professor Ted DeLaney said. “As a historian, I feel very uncomfortable imagining too much about this woman, because imagination leads to fiction.”The unknowns plagued the ceremony’s planners — how do you honor someone you know nothing about?DeLaney, along with Alexander and his colleague Alison Bell, settled on simple. DeLaney and Alexander gave speeches, the crowd sang “Amazing Grace” and a local minister led the group in saying the Lord’s Prayer. At the end, each attendee took a flower and laid it on top of the handmade white oak coffin.The ceremony ended with little fanfare and people slowly scattered as they walked back to their cars.The organizers said they felt validated. In a small city steeped in Confederate history, there will be a small memorial to a young, African American woman, forever marked with a gravestone installed later this summer.After most people left, Bell placed a 2019 penny beneath the flowers on the coffin.If Jane’s grave marker is ever lost and her remains are propelled into yet another century, they’ll know she had some connection to 2019.And perhaps one small part of her story will be remembered.___Information from: The Roanoke Times, http://www.roanoke.comlast_img read more

first_imgBy Stelios OrphanidesFinance Minister Harris Georgiades said that unless public hospitals gain complete administrative and financial autonomy, the national healthcare scheme (NHS), a reform included on the agenda of four governments and widely known by its Greek acronym GESY, cannot be implemented.“Nobody will be in a position to answer the question over how much the GESY will cost and how it will work, unless one sees how hospitals operate as administratively and financially independent corporations,” said Georgiades who was commenting on Monday on state radio CyBC.The implementation of GESY, which aims at curbing the increase in healthcare costs, could also help address chronic problems plaguing public hospitals, including long waiting lists, caused by their operating hours, similar to those of the public service, the finance minister said.In order to illustrate the limitations caused by the public hospitals’ operating hours, the finance minister cited a report by former auditor-general and current governor of the Central Bank of Cyprus, Chrystalla Georghadji on the acquisition and operation of “expensive” magnetic resonance imaging equipment at the Nicosia general hospital.For a number of years following of its acquisition, there were no waiting lists for patients as the company that sold it, was also operating the MRI equipment and its use was not restricted to the operating hours of hospitals, Georgiades said. Immediately after the operation of the equipment became a responsibility of the hospital, waiting lists were formed.“The example highlights where the problem is,” Georgiades said. “I don’t think that the private company that operated the MRI equipment had more staff. It managed its staff in such a way that they didn’t all have to work in the morning as happens in the public sector”.Georgiades’s comments came three days after President Nicos Anastasiades said that he felt misled about the situation in public hospitals and instructed Health Minister Giorgos Pamboridis, the ministry’s permanent secretary and the head of the ministry’s medical services, to submit a detailed organisational chart and indicate areas in which public hospitals are understaffed.You May LikeInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesNew Rule in Rowland Heights, California Leaves Drivers FumingInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
