Bankruptcy Q&A for Service Members

first_img Return to article. Long DescriptionU.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Areca t. Wilson/ReleasedCan Members of the Military File for Bankruptcy?Yes. Filing for bankruptcy is a federal right and does not in itself disqualify service members from continuing to serve in the military. In fact, if filing bankruptcy seems as if it may be necessary, it is probably wise to do so, since high amounts of debt and continued failure to pay debt can definitely be a reason to be separated from service or to be denied security clearance. (When you think about it, it makes sense to be concerned about the security risks when someone is in serious financial trouble. They might be tempted to do almost anything to improve their dire financial circumstances, including betray their country.)Will Declaring Bankruptcy Affect a Service Member’s Military Career?It can, but it depends on the circumstances. Filing for bankruptcy is typically viewed more favorably by the military than being in vast amounts of delinquent debt. Filing indicates that you have a plan to repay or “wipe out” your debt and are facing up to your mistakes. Be aware, however, that it is still possible to lose security clearance.  Also, service members who file for bankruptcy should be scrupulously honest about this on all future security disclosures.Are There Any Special Bankruptcy Protections for Service Members?Yes. To file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, filers must typically pass a “means test” to prove they have no significant assets. However, disabled veterans (disability rated at 30% or more or discharged from active duty due to disability incurred in the line of duty) do not need to pass this means test.Some National Guard and Reserve members who were called up to perform homeland defense duties are also temporarily exempt from means testing for a certain period of time following their duty.The SCRA also gives service members the ability to postpone bankruptcy proceedings while they are on active duty, and Military STAR card debt is included just like other debt when filing for bankruptcy.Where Can Service Members Having Problems with Debt Get Help?Financial advisors on military bases can provide help and consultations to service members who are having problems paying their debt. By Carol ChurchWhat is Bankruptcy?In Chapter 7 bankruptcy, debtors liquidate all assets, except any that may be exempt in their states. In return, all debt is discharged. In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, filers may be allowed to keep property and are given 3 to 5 years to pay off debts. In both types, the bankruptcy will be on the filer’s credit record for up to 10 years, making it difficult to get credit or loans. Some types of financial obligations cannot be discharged through bankruptcy. Examples include student loans, taxes, and child support. Additionally, some bankruptcy is filed in federal court, and you need a lawyer.

Own Your Social Platform

first_imgI bought the domain name iannarino.com in 1996. I only used it for email. In 2007, when I bought www.thesalesblog.com, I let www.iannarino.com expire, believing that my last name was so unusual, and so difficult to spell, that it was essentially worthless.I had no idea what to do with www.thesalesblog.com for a couple years. I dabbled. Then I started following Chris Brogan and Seth Godin. On December 28, 2009, I started writing here daily.Since then my traffic here has grown pretty steadily, mostly because I watch what Chris Brogan does, I call him and ask him to explain his decisions to me, and then I tell him I am going to steal his strategies and implement them exactly as he has done. Not to worry, his response is always the same, “Do it!”Now I am working with some professionals to change some of what I am doing. They insisted that I go buy www.iannarino.com back from the company that owns it. They believe that because my last name is unusual, and because I have used it on the social sites for so long, that it is worth using.I believed I would have to pay $11.99 to get it back. Who would want it? I couldn’t have been more wrong. I paid a shockingly high price to buy back my name.There are companies that run an algorithm to find words and names that have some equity on the web. They buy up those names and charge a price based on what they believe the name commands on the open market.I bought my name back for far more than I expected to. I complained to the people I am working with about how much I spent, and they told me to be thankful it wasn’t more. They’d seen worse.If you don’t own your name, you probably should. If your name is common, you should still probably own some derivation of that name. If you are out here building a presence, you should own that presence instead of allowing one of the social media channels to own it. Not only do you want to be found, you want some control over what is found when people Google your name.If you have children, you should buy their names, too. Get the Free eBook!

In soccer-insane Calcutta, four teams in two encounters score 194 goals in total

first_imgSomewhere in the wilds of Maharashtra, a man is face to face with fear every minute of his life. The man is a journalist in a small town and the entity who personifies his fear is his wife, who appears hellbent on reducing him to jelly.The journalist is called Bhaisare,Somewhere in the wilds of Maharashtra, a man is face to face with fear every minute of his life. The man is a journalist in a small town and the entity who personifies his fear is his wife, who appears hellbent on reducing him to jelly.The journalist is called Bhaisare and his wife is called Bhagirathibai and after the assault and battery had gone on for some time in the cosy confines of home, Bhaisare dragged himself to a police station and registered a complaint.Unfortunately, Bhagirathibai landed up at the police station, drew her rolling pin from its holster and went for her rather battered other half with gusto. The police watched all this goggle-eyed but a platoon of them finally succeeded in stopping the slaughter.Later in court, the indomitable Bhagirathibai looked on unperturbed when the judge listened to her husband telling his story and illustrating it with bruises and writhes. The judge fined the woman Re 1, which Bhagirathibai paid on the spot, not, however, without giving Bhaisare a look which the dictionary usually describes as one that kills. The fine, when last reports came in, had done little to cool Bhagirathi bai’s ardour – Bhaisare still seeks police protection.The Living DeadRarely is it given to man to listen to his friends andassociates mourn his death, rarely is it the lot of a human being thathe should stand by his own bier and watch a crowd of people weep fortheir fellow now gone to the happy hunting grounds.Goverdhan Lalof Jaipur can now claim to have done so, for did he not, recently, wheel his bicycle up to a sad group of mourners only to find that it was hehimself, a hale 45, whom they were setting out with on the finaljourney?advertisementInformation reached the staff of the Jaipur Collectorate one day that chaprasi Goverdhan Lal had died on the way to the office,after falling off his bicycle. The collector and others reached thespot, and made arrangements for the body to be carried to Lal’s village. Just then, the dead man himself came up and stood quietly by, head also bowed in sorrow.One by one the mourners looked up and saw whatmust have appeared a miracle. Immediately there was a veritable showerof “jug jug jiyo” and “amar rahe”, Goverdhan Lal was garlandedprofusely, and after being heartily feted rode away slightly bewilderedto the office, leaving a very bemused funeral cortege behind.Dogged DevotionDogs are very faithful creatures but they can get veryclinging at times. In Weir tehsil of Bharatpur district in Rajasthan, agroup of robbers set out to, well, rob. They had a dog who just wouldn’t let them go out and rob on their own so they took him along as well,thinking that he would be good company on the way.They came to a house which looked a lucrative target. So it was with practised easethat they swung legs over walls and busted windows in the gentle lightof the moon. The dog wagged his tail and imitated his masters.They got into the house, the dog sticking close to them and then, as oftenhappens, someone upset a whole cupboard of barton and soon drowsyqueries of “Who, what, where, how” could be heard, making the placesound like a journalists’ convention. The robbers stood not upon theorder of their going, but went – but the dog couldn’t and didn’t.After that it was child’s play for the police, who found the dog wagging histail all over the place. All they had to do was to put a leash on himand let him lead them to his masters’ hide-out. What was that somebodysaid about a dog being man’s best friend?Matchless winsFootball is an intensely competitive game, and the tally of goals atthe end of a match doesn’t usually amount too much. However, four teamsin soccer-insane Calcutta last fortnight were involved in two encounters that yielded no less than 194 goals, and two of the outfits scored nogoals at all.Indian Boys Athletic Club (IBAC) and Internationalwere two third division teams at the bottom of the table. The nextmatches would decide who got relegated to the fourth division.International’s next match was with Juga Shanti and Juga Shanti wasreportedly “advised” to lose by a huge margin so that International came above IBAC on the basis of the goal average.advertisementThe advice wastaken and, in a most dreary farce, all 20 players thumped the ball intothe Juga Shanti goal in a monotonous shuttle from net to centre to netto centre etc. The final score: International 80, Juga Shanti 0.However, IBAC had got wind of the plot and they staged a similar, drearier farce in their match with Victoria Sporting. After the same net to centre adnauseam tactics, IBAC won 114-0. Calcutta football circles are nowreverberating with shouts of “Shoot! Shoot!” – and they don’t mean goals.last_img read more

Nokia 6.1 Plus, Realme 2 Pro, Xiaomi Mi A2 among best phones to buy under Rs 20,000

first_imgLast week, we took a look at some of the best phones that you can buy under Rs 10,000. The budget segment is incredibly popular in India and it is also largely dominated by Xiaomi. But as we move above the Rs 10,000 line, things are a lot more competitive. We have phones from brands like Realme, Nokia and Honor that offer premium designs along with stellar performance that make it harder to recommend high-end phones. We are looking at some of these devices today in our list of the best under Rs 20,000 smartphones.What’s notable about our new list of best under Rs 20,000 phones is that a majority of the devices mentioned here are Android One phones. In addition to this, we are also looking at more and more affordable mid-range phones that are impressing us on the design front as much as they do on the performance front. Here’s a look at some of the best phones worth considering under Rs 20,000.Nokia 6.1 Plus: Rs 15,999HMD has had a busy year, launching close to a dozen smartphones, most of which have made their way to India, including the Nokia 6.1 Plus (Review). Launched a few months ago, the 6.1 Plus is one of HMD’s most value for money offerings as it brings an all-glass design, notched display and powerful hardware. The icing on the cake is that HMD managed to price the device competitively as well and the company has also been consistently delivering up-to-date Android updates.The Nokia 6.1 Plus brings a 5.8-inch FHD+ (1080×2280) TFT display with a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top and an aspect ratio of 19:9. Powering the device is an octa-core Snapdragon 636 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 400GB via microSD card. The Nokia 6.1 Plus bears a dual camera setup which includes a 16-megapixel primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor with similar aperture. The phone houses a 3,060mAh battery with support for fast charging via USB Type-C port. Notably, the Android One phone got updated to Android 9 Pie recently, making it an even sweeter deal for anyone looking for an affordable smartphone with the latest Android version.advertisementRealme 2 Pro: Rs 13,999Realme has had a solid start this year with four unique smartphones, some of which have been segment-disrupting. The Realme 2 Pro (Review) is perhaps the company’s best phone right now as it brings a number of segment-first features such as a waterdrop display and Snapdragon 660 chipset at a starting price of Rs 13,999. Realme recently increased the prices of the Realme C1 and Realme 2, but the Realme 2 Pro fortunately sees no price hike. Powering the Realme 2 Pro is an octa-core Snapdragon 660 AIE chipset with Adreno 512 GPU. This is coupled with up to 8GB of RAM for smooth and swift multitasking experience. The company is also touting a great gaming experience thanks to a powerful mid-range chipset. The phone will be offered with up to 128GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card. The Realme 2 Pro houses a 3,500mAh battery that will deliver a full day of battery life. It also supports dual 4G and dual VoLTE. The phone also offers 16MP sensors for all three cameras on board.Motorola One Power: Rs 16,999Motorola has had the most exciting year as the devices the company launched were few and a lot of them were a hit and miss. The Motorola G6 and One Power (Review) are some of the standouts this year. The One Power is particularly notable as it is the company’s Android One device, which means it runs stock and secure Android Oreo with a promise of timely security updates. The One Power is also expected to be updated to Pie by the end of the year.The One Power sports a 6.2-inch FHD+ display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 636 chipset which is coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage with support for expandability. One major highlight is that the One Power houses a 5,000mAh battery that will deliver a good two days of battery life on a single charge. As for the camera, the One Power comes with a 16MP + 5MP setup on the back and a 12-megapixel sensor on the front.Xiaomi Mi A2: Rs 16,999The Mi A2 (Review) is the successor to last year’s Mi A1 and is part of Xiaomi’s Android One series of phones that offer stock Android software out-of-the-box without Xiaomi’s custom MIUI skin on top. The Mi A2 was launched with Android Oreo, but is expected to be among the first Xiaomi phones to get updated to Android 9 Pie. Recently, the company announced a 6GB RAM variant of the Mi A2 at an introductory pricing of Rs 17,999 while the actual price is Rs 19,999.advertisement The Mi A2 brings a 5.99-inch FHD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The device is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset that is paired with 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. The Mi A2 sports a dual camera setup on the back with a 12MP primary sensor with f/1.75 aperture and a 20MP secondary sensor with the same aperture. On the front, the Mi A2 gets a 20MP selfie camera. The phone also houses a 3,000mAH battery with Quick Charge 4+ support.Honor Play: Rs 19,999Huawei sub-brand Honor has been terrific in the mid-range segment. Year after year, the company has dished out some very impressive phones that set the trend as far as design goes while at the same time not compromising on the hardware. The Honor Play (Review) is yet another phone that comes at a price starting at Rs 19,999. As the name suggests, this is a phone designed for gaming with an immersive edge-to-edge display, large battery and GPU Turbo technology.The Honor Play is is powered by Huawei’s Kirin 970 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM s the base variant. It is offered with 64GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 256GB. The device comes with what the company calls GPU Turbo technology which boosts performance by up to 60 per cent and reduces battery consumption by up to 30 per cent.The device sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ FullView display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. It bears a dual camera setup on the back with a 16MP + 2MP and 16MP front-facing camera with AI portrait mode and portrait lightning features. The Honor Play houses a 3,750mAh battery with support for fast charging. It ships with Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.2 on top.last_img read more

India vs Australia: Virat Kohli’s stunning one-handed catch is a sight to behold

first_imgLast week, the world went gaga over Usman Khawaja’s catch to dismiss Virat Kohli in Adelaide. On Friday, Virat Kohli put up an incredible piece of fielding on display at the Optus Stadium in Perth and it left everyone stunned. Khawaja had led to Kohli’s dismissal, Virat Kohli replied by sending Peter Handscomb back to the pavilion. Kohli absolutely lit up the first day of the Perth Test with that marvellous bit of instinctive movement right after the Tea Break and took an absolute blinder.Ishant Sharma began the attack after tea and banged in a short-pitched delivery, it bounced off and Handscomb tried to get behind the ball but it got carried towards the second slip.Even through the ball carried well to the slip, the catch was by no means anything easy. The ball went high on the right of Kohli and the India captain timed his jump to perfection, stretched to the maximum and leapt on to a one-handed catch to get Australia’s fourth wicket for India.As soon Kohli caught on to the ball, he landed and ran around half in momentum half in celebration and then all his teammates ran to him to celebrate the wicket.One handed catch from virat Kohli , I just want to say “what a catch ” #INDvsAUS #ViratKohli pic.twitter.com/KZAgRPbR7gCr7 (@See_are_7) December 14, 2018India vs Australia, 2nd Test in Perth: Live Blog | Live ScoreIn the first innings of the Adelaide Test, Khawaja had picked a blinder to sent Kohli back to the pavilion early on and the world had gone into a frenzy.advertisementIt was no different on Friday when Kohli replied in his own manner.That catch from Kohli #savage #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/nrzeq77Uao(@kazisahab08) December 14, 2018Genius catch by Virat Kohli #AUSvIND #AUSvsIND pic.twitter.com/6rJXlcBtyVGraham Farmer (@gravyonsports) December 14, 2018Looks like Anushka has been throwing around quite a few things in the house over the past year brilliant catch plucked there by skipper Kohli a couple of days after his first wedding anniversary #AUSvIND #indvaus #PerthTest #KohliBaidurjo Bhose (@bbhose) December 14, 2018Was that a bird?

Captain courageous, you beauty. One handed stunner. One of the very best one can ever see. #INDvAUSRishabh Bhargava (@Engineereed) December 14, 2018By the time the session after Tea Break arrived, the Indian pacers had got accustomed to the pitch, its bounce and pacy and had begun finding their rhythm well.Indian pacers were salivating at the thought of a green top at the Optus Stadium in Perth. India lost the toss and were put to bowl. Yet the bowlers had an extremely ordinary morning.Ishant and Jasprit Bumrah struggled to find a consistent line and length and went wayward with their deliveries – their indiscipline was perhaps the one big setback for India as both Marcus Harris and Aaron Finch settled and found their stride.The entire first session, India gave away 66 runs in 26 overs and were unable to pick a single wicket.However, after the Lunch Break, the Indian bowlers, especially Bumrah began to find his rhythm and his disciplined bowling did unsettle the batsmen. However, Harris and Finch both scored their half centuries and took India to a 100 without the loss of a wicket.It was right after Finch scored his fifty that Bumrah struck to get a much-needed breakthrough for India. Then Umesh Yadav and Hanuma Vihari also arrived at the scene and picked the wickets of Khawaja and Harris.In the second session, India gave away 79 runs in 27 overs but picked 3 valuable wickets and stormed right back into the match.And that confidence and rhythm led to that fourth wicket after Tea even as it was Virat Kohli at the end of a spectacular display of fielding.Also Read | Shane Warne fancies an Australian win: Aussie pacers will blow India away in PerthAlso Read | For ICC boss, India not among favourites to win 2019 World CupAlso See:last_img read more

Rooney: Klopp’s only mistake is working for Liverpool!

first_imgWayne Rooney revealed his admiration for Jurgen Klopp, calling the Liverpool boss an “amazing guy” even if he is currently leading the success of Rooney’s biggest rivals.Klopp took charge of Liverpool in 2015 after rising to prominence as manager of Borussia Dortmund, where he won two Bundesliga titles and a DFB-Pokal while reaching the 2012-13 Champions League final.He then guided the Reds to the 2015-16 Europa League and 2017-18 Champions League finals, settling for runners-up medals yet again. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? The manager did finally get his Champions League medal, though, as Liverpool triumphed over Tottenham in June behind goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi in the tournament finale.The Reds also finished second in a historic Premier League campaign, as Liverpool’s 97 points were not enough to eclipse Manchester City’s 98 atop the league.Widely seen as one of the best managers in the world, Klopp earned the praise of Rooney, even if the forward’s Manchester United and Everton roots made it difficult for him to confess his admiration.”Jurgen is a manager every player would love playing for. You can see how much fun his players have playing under him. I met him once, he is an amazing guy,” Rooney told Sport Bild.”His only mistake is that he works for LFC and is successful there.”I have much respect for Jurgen Klopp and for what he already has achieved. Not only in Liverpool, but also in Dortmund. This guy really has it. And he has his best years still upon him.”Rooney, who won five Premier League titles and a Champions League trophy as a member of Manchester United, is currently plying his trade in MLS as a member of D.C. United.The Liverpool-born forward moved to the club in June 2018, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with the American club as he left England for the first time in his career.After guiding D.C. to the playoffs, Rooney was named the club’s most valuable player and golden boot winner for the 2018 campaign, having scored 12 goals in 21 matches.This season, Rooney has scored 11 goals in 19 appearances for the club, as D.C. currently sits in second place in the Eastern Conference.    Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

States agree Ban Kimoons UN reform plans need support – Arab League

5 February 2007United Nations Member States agree that Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon deserves their backing for his plans to restructure the Organization’s peacekeeping and disarmament operations so that he can focus on tackling pressing international crises and global challenges, an official from the League of Arab States said today. The League’s Permanent Observer to the UN, Yahya Mahmassani, who attended a private lunch today with Mr. Ban and other key ambassadors, including members of the Security Council, said participants concurred that although they might have different views on some of the proposal details, they must come to an agreement quickly.“We can’t continue to just keep discussing it and putting forward our ideas without setting a consensus on this,” he told the UN News Service and UN Radio. “There was a general feeling at the luncheon that we must agree on this issue because the SG has too many other things to do. He has a big agenda to follow.”Under a proposal given to Member States, Mr. Ban wants to create a new Department of Field Support so that UN peace operations – whose numbers have reached an all-time high – can be supported more effectively and coherently.The Secretary-General has also suggested that the Department of Disarmament Affairs be constituted as an Office with a direct line of responsibility to him “to ensure access and more frequent interaction,” his spokesperson Michele Montas said today.Mr. Ban and other senior UN officials have been holding talks with Member States about the proposals, and Mr. Mahmassani said that informal process would continue in the weeks ahead.Also speaking to the UN News Service and UN Radio, Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Ibrahim Gambari said Mr. Ban stressed to participants at today’s luncheon that “he wants to feel he has their support” for his vision for restructuring, so that he can implement it quickly and then concentrate on such issues as the Darfur crisis, the Middle East, Iraq and climate change.Mr. Gambari said Mr. Ban wants Member States to at least support the framework of his changes, allowing any contentious details to be worked out in the second phase during meetings involving the General Assembly and its committees.He added that some participants voiced concerns about the process rather than the content of the planned reforms, given that they would have budgetary and resource implications.The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and some other States also wanted assurances that the proposal for disarmament affairs did not represent a downgrade of its role, especially amid perceptions among some that non-proliferation was being paid more attention than disarmament.But Mr. Gambari said Mr. Ban informed ambassadors that his plans were actually designed to upgrade the role of disarmament and ensure it plays a more pro-active part in encouraging Member States to reach agreement on issues where they are divided.He added that representatives of the European Union and the United States, among others, indicated that they wanted to give Mr. Ban plenty of room to organize the Secretariat in the ways he sought.Mr. Gambari also noted that Mr. Ban had already made some alterations to the initial draft of his plans to accommodate the views of Member States. read more

Vital African UnionUN partnership can be strengthened further Security Council told

“The African Union is a vital strategic partner to the United Nations,” Mr. Ban said in remarks to a meeting on the UN-AU partnership in peace and security, chaired by President Jacob Zuma of South Africa, which holds the Council’s rotating presidency for this month.“Over the last decade, the AU and sub-regional organizations have significantly bolstered their own role in building an architecture for peace and security on the African continent,” noted Mr. Ban. “Together, our collective efforts in conflict prevention and mediation, peacekeeping and peacebuilding are making a real difference throughout the continent,” he stated. “Of course, there is more room for improvement.”Some examples of cooperation between the UN and the AU include the joint peacekeeping operation in Darfur (UNAMID), combined efforts to combat the threat posed by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and UN support to the AU peacekeeping force in Somalia (AMISOM).Mr. Ban said that it is only natural that there will be differences in dealing with complex and fast moving crises. “Organizations with different mandates, membership, and perspectives will occasionally have differences in approach,” he said. “The question is how we manage those differences – how we work together.”The UN has strengthened the partnership with the AU in several concrete ways over the past few years, noted Mr. Ban, whose recent report on the subject focuses on building on successes, improving coherence, and harmonizing decision-making from a firm foundation of shared values and principles. “We must build on what we have achieved to devise and strengthen practical tools so that we can successfully face our common peace and security challenges in Africa together,” he wrote in the report.Mr. Ban told the Council that the UN-AU partnership can be enhanced further in a number of ways, including by learning new lessons and developing new tools, as well as by intensifying the engagement with civil society and women’s groups active in mediation and conflict prevention, particularly at the local level.“As we look ahead, we will need to ensure flexibility so that each new situation is addressed on its own merits. We must also promote innovative arrangements in complex situations that may require joint actions, operations, or enhanced partnerships,” he stated.“As we do so, let us strive to maximize our collective efforts and limited resources, and ensure that each partnership arrangement has a clearly-defined division of labour and roles and responsibilities for each organization,” added the Secretary-General, who will attend the AU Summit later this month.The meeting heard from numerous delegations, as well as Ramtane Lamamra, AU Commissioner for Peace and Security, who noted that a more strategic relationship between the UN and the AU is made more compelling by the fact that Africa, despite the significant progress made in recent years, still accounts for the highest number of conflicts worldwide.In addition to the traditional threats, the continent is now facing a new set of threats, including terrorism, maritime piracy, border disputes and climate change, he added.“Clearly, these challenges require concerted responses by the African Union and the United Nations and a much closer partnership,” stated Mr. Lamamra, who suggested that the two organizations agree on a set of principles aimed at clarifying their relationship and “anchoring it on a more solid platform.”In a resolution that was adopted unanimously during the meeting, the Council reiterated the importance of establishing “a more effective relationship” between it and the AU Peace and Security Council, including in the area of conflict prevention, resolution and management, electoral assistance and regional conflict prevention offices.It also encouraged the improvement of regular interaction, consultation and coordination between the two bodies on matters of mutual interest, and decided to elaborate further ways of strengthening relations, including through achieving more effective annual consultative meetings, the holding of timely consultations and collaborative field missions. 12 January 2012The collective efforts by the United Nations and the African Union in peace and security matters are having an important impact on the continent, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the Security Council today, while stressing the need to further strengthen this vital partnership. read more

UN SouthSouth forum wraps up with over 450 million pledged for greener

South-South cooperation is the exchange of resources, technology and knowledge between developing countries. Today, over $5 trillion in reserves are held by countries of the global South, which now also account for 47 per cent of global trade. Among the agreements made this week at the 2013 Expo, held at the Nairobi headquarters of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), were projects ranging from building organic fertilizer factories and clean energy projects in Kenya to solar power plants in Uganda to green businesses for women in Egypt.Organized by the UN Office of South-South Cooperation and hosted by UNEP under the theme “Building inclusive green economies,” the Expo is the world’s biggest stage for development solutions created in the South for the South.“The theme of this year’s Expo is fitting in that Southern countries have both the opportunity and the obligation to pursue a ‘smarter’ development course than their predecessors,” said General Assembly President John Ashe, who addressed today’s closing ceremony.He added that it is evident that South-South cooperation is having great impact and influence across a range of sectors including health, energy, economic and trade. It is also worthy, he said, to note that the South is attracting significant capital inflows, and that some of the emerging economies of the South are beginning to exercise tremendous geopolitical influence. “The fact that this Expo is being convened in the Global South for the first time is testimony to the growing importance of the South.”Mr. Ashe went on to say that this year’s theme recognizes the fact that society, economy and environment are inextricably linked, and that each derives benefit from or causes harm to the other. “It also highlights the concept that ecology and economy are not two competing and mutually exclusive paradigms, but that they can in fact be harmoniously managed in a mutually advantageous way for the benefit of companies, citizens, communities and countries,” he stated. Highlights of the week included the Expo’s first Solution Exchange Forum, which presented examples of innovative projects in developing countries that are already contributing tangible benefits to the environment, economic development and decent job creation.A total of 15 Partnership Forums were also held, with topics ranging from youth volunteerism to China-Africa business in support of green growth. More than 50 exhibitors showcased their innovative Southern-grown solutions in the Expo’s eco-friendly pavilion.Also, more than 40 companies were successfully matched and held business negotiations at the Expo’s South-South Global Assets and Technology Exchange (SS-GATE), another of the many events held during the week, which also featured the presentation of the annual South-South Cooperation Awards honouring individuals and organizations that have been prominent champions of South-South cooperation throughout the world.The Expo topped the agenda in a meeting held today between Mr. Ashe and Achim Steiner, UN Under-Secretary-General and UNEP Executive Director.They also discussed the green economy in the context of sustainable development and the Post-2015 Development Agenda, and the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS).Mr. Ashe also met with Madame Sahle-Work Zewde, Director-General of the UN Office at Nairobi (UNON) to discuss the administrative services and political mandate of what is the third largest UN administrative office in the world. The meeting comes as the General Assembly considers the Organization’s budget for the next biennium.While in Nairobi, Mr. Ashe also met with Doug Cress, Programme Coordinator of the Great Apes Survival Partnerships (GRASP), who urged the UN General Assembly to support the cause of great apes survival. Among the topics discussed, the need to balance conservation and human growth, and the importance of technology and finance to help further this cause.According to a UN spokesperson, Mr. Cress has proposed efforts to establish a UN International Day on Great Apes by 2014. read more

Geek deals Pioneer SEA1000 headphones at 61 off

first_imgAudio is one of the most subjective things in the technology world. In a world of speeds, feeds, and specs, how something sounds will be difficult to get a consensus on.  Perhaps even more relative is the importance of audio. Does your average person care if their car stereo has ten speakers vs six or if their PC has audio enhancing software for tuned output?It is safe to say that your average person is not an “audiophile” and ergonomics aside, doesn’t mind using the earbuds that came with their phone or music player. Just look at all the white earbuds dangling in your local coffee shop.For those with discerning tastes in sound, then comes a whole new category of subjective and relative opinions and preferences. Data and specs only tell part of the story: the user’s own brain and ears influence their opinion of an audio device far more than anything else, perhaps second only to brand preference.Since most of us don’t have unlimited budgets to spend thousands, or even hundreds, of dollars on a quality set of headphones, this helps narrow the field down to products that are subjectively pleasing to most, but don’t break the bank either.We found a deal on one such set of headphones, an over-the-ear set that promises geek-level audio quality, comfortable fit, and thanks to this deal a great price too. Pioneer’s SE-A1000 are a light-weight set of cans, which is clearly seen in the very minimalist design. The earmuffs are well padded and over-sized to ensure long hours of comfortable use, weighing just over 26 ounces.The cord spans an impressive 18 feet for extra mobility and is even fabric-wrapped to avoid tangling. Even the most stingy of us with our audio budgets will typically agree that a quality set of headphones starts in the $30-50 range. The SE-A1000 is available for just $59 with free shipping, after an impressive 61% instant discount.Visit LogicBuy for the Pioneer SE-A1000 headphoneslast_img read more

Face of 9000yearold skull found in central Greece reconstructed

first_imgUniversity of Athens researchers put a face to the past at an event at the Acropolis Museum on Friday. Thanks to advances in 3D modelling technology, archaeologists together with the assistance of an endocrinologist, orthopedist, neurologist, pathologist, and radiologist, have managed to reconstruct the facial features of a teenager from a skull found in 1993 dating back to around 7,000 BC. While very little is known about how she lived and died, her features consist of prominent cheekbones, a heavy brow and dimpled chin. Discovered in Theopetra cave in central Greece, the woman’s face was last seen in its full human form some 9,000 years ago at the end of the Mesolithic period.The teenager has since been named ‘Avgi’ by archaeologists. Translating to ‘Dawn’, it is a fitting name given she lived during what researchers consider to have been the ‘dawn of civilisation’, when humans in Greece and the region as a whole, underwent a transition from hunter gatherers to a society that was cultivating its own food.The reconstruction team was led by orthodontist Manolis Papagrigorakis, who noted that while Avgi’s bones appeared to belong to a 15-year-old, upon closer inspection her teeth indicated that she was in fact 18 “give or take a year”.Working alongside the team was Swedish archaeologist and sculptor, Oscar Nilsson who has worked on a number of ancient faces, specialising in reconstructions. The sophisticated process entailed taking a CT scan of the skull and a 3D printer making an exact replica of the scan’s measurements. Pegs were then glued upon the replica reflecting the thickness of the flesh at certain anatomical points of the face, which was then fleshed out muscle-by-muscle. Some features were recreated based on skull measurements, while others such as skin and eye colour are based on population traits in the region, given the area has been populated continually for some 130,000 years. “Avgi has very unique, not especially female, skull, and features,” Nilsson observed.“Having reconstructed a lot of Stone Age women and men, I think some facial features seem to have disappeared or ‘smoothed out’ with time. In general, we look less masculine, both men and women, today.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Syndrome dAsperger symptômes diagnostic traitement chez ladulte et lenfant

first_imgSyndrome d’Asperger : symptômes, diagnostic, traitement, chez l’adulte et l’enfantLe syndrome d’Asperger est un trouble de la famille de l’autisme se manifestant notamment par des difficultés à communiquer et à établir des relations sociales.Définition : qu’est ce que le syndrome d’Asperger ?Le syndrome d’Asperger est un trouble de la famille de l’autisme. Il fait partie des TSA (troubles du spectre autistique) ou TED (trouble envahissant du développement) caractérisés par des problèmes de communication et de relation sociale. Il ne se traduit pas en revanche par une déficience intellectuelle ou un retard de langage.Le syndrome d’Asperger se déclare dès l’enfance et touche beaucoup plus les garçons que les filles. On considère qu’environ 500 000 personnes sont atteintes à travers le monde. Symptômes du syndrome d’AspergerLe syndrome d’Asperger se manifeste par les signes cliniques suivants : – difficultés à communiquer et à comprendre les situations sociales (signes corporels, règles sociales tacites)- intérêts restreints : tendance à l’obsession dans un domaine spécifique- maladresse motrice : mouvements répétitifs et/ou mal contrôlés- hypersensibilité (hyperacousie): difficultés à supporter les environnements bruyants- attachement à la routine : difficultés à supporter l’imprévu- vocabulaire développé grâce à une bonne mémoireDiagnostic du syndrome d’AspergerLe syndrome d’Asperger est très difficile à diagnostiquer en raison de l’absence d’un retard mental. En effet, ses symptômes peuvent être associés à différents troubles de comportement, de langage ou de développement.Les premiers signes du syndrome d’Asperger sont visibles dès les premiers mois ou années (absence de geste sociaux à 1 an, absence de mot à 18 mois, perte de langage…). Pourtant, le diagnostic du syndrome d’Asperger se fait le plus souvent après l’âge de 10 ans. Il se fait à l’aide de tests spécifiques, d’observations, d’un bilan orthophonique ainsi que des entretiens avec la famille et l’école.Traitement du syndrome d’AspergerIl n’existe malheureusement pas de traitement curatif du syndrome d’Asperger. Cependant un suivi multidisciplinaire peut permettre de limiter les désagréments. Il peut être composé d’une rééducation orthophoniste, d’une thérapie comportementale ou d’une thérapie psychologique. Un traitement médicamenteux peut également être mis en place pour diminuer les troubles autistiques. Le syndrome d’Asperger chez l’adulteÀ lire aussiACC (anticoagulants circulants) : définition, rôle, comment analyser les résultats ?A l’âge adulte, le syndrome d’Asperger se caractérise par les mêmes symptômes que chez l’enfant. Le handicap n’étant pas visible au premier abord, les relations avec les personnes croisées au quotidien peuvent s’avérer compliquées.Un accompagnement peut être mis en place pour favoriser l’insertion dans la société des personnes atteintes. Il peut être adapté selon le niveau d’autonomie.Le 11 mai 2016 à 10:39 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

PreOrder Douglas Adams Lost Doctor Who Story

first_img HBO Max Scores Exclusive ‘Doctor Who’ Streaming RightsJo Tro Do Plo Plo No: ‘Doctor Who’ Welcomes Back Familiar Monster Stay on target Don’t panic: Douglas Adams’ long-lost “Doctor Who and the Krikkitmen” story is coming soon.The Fourth Doctor novel, penned by James Goss, is based on a recently discovered treatment and “extensive” notes found in the Douglas Adams archive in Cambridge.Set for publication on Jan. 18—and available now to pre-order—the tale follows the Doctor and companion/Time Lady Romana to the end of the universe a cricket match.But in true Doctor Who style, nothing is as it seems. Read the BBC book description below:Intergalactic war? That’s just not cricket … or is it?The Doctor promised Romana the end of the universe, so she’s less than impressed when what she gets is a cricket match. But play is soon interrupted by 11 figures in white uniforms and peaked skull helmets, wielding bat-shaped weapons that fire lethal bolts of light into the screaming crowd.The Krikkitmen are back.Coming January 2018 (via BBC)Millions of year ago, the people of Krikkit discovered they were not alone in the universe. Instead of welcoming their intergalactic neighbors, though, the xenophobic species launched a crusade against all other life-forms.The Time Lords came to the rescue, eventually imprisoning the planet within “an envelop of Slow Time,” which could be opened only with the Wicket Gate key—a device that, to the human eye, resembles an oversized set of cricket stumps.From Earth to Gallifrey, from Bethselamin to Devalin, from Krikkit to Mareeve II to the far edge of infinity, the Doctor and Romana are tugged into a pan-galactic conga with fate as they rush to stop the Krikkitmen gaining all five pieces of the key. If they fall, the entire cosmos faces a fiery retribution that will leave nothing but ashes…Best known as the author of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,” Adams also wrote “The Restaurant at the End of the Universe,” “Life, the Universe and Everything,” “So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish,” “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency” (now a BBC America TV series), and three Tom Baker-era episodes of Doctor Who.Following his unexpected death in 2001 at the age of 49, Adams’ legacy lives on through radio programs, television shows, and books—including “Krikkitmen.”Goss is no stranger to the famous author’s work: He previously penned a novelization of Adams’ DW serials “The Pirate Planet” and “City of Death,” developed the unfinished Who story “Shada,” and adapted Dirk Gently for stage.US shoppers can download the Kindle edition (starting next year) for $13.49; a £15.18 ($20.20) hardcover version will also ship from Amazon.co.uk.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Actions revealed for Energy Solutions by TCI EUC Cummings

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 16 Jul 2015 – Get rid of all incandescent light bulbs throughout the territory by the year 2016; that is just one of the bold and some would say sensible proposals in a sustainable energy pitch by the country’s Energy Commissioner, Malike Cummings. Compact Fluorescent lights and LED lighting are much smarter options says Cummings who believes in phasing out what most people have and even running pilot projects for LED lighting on street lamps. Another action identified by Mr. Cummings when he presented on day one at the Summit of OCT Energy Ministers under the theme ‘Sustainable Energy Solutions from the Poles to the Tropics’ in Brussels, Belgium was that new construction projects should only use solar powered water heaters and that Governments be more prepared to offer concessions to developers who build with energy efficiency top of mind. Malike Cummings shared with his counterparts at the conference that overseas Caribbean Territories are characterized by high energy costs and prices, archaic legislative and regulatory frameworks and limited uptake of renewable energy and energy efficient projects. A draft energy policy, authored by Cummings has been written and ready for review since November 2014. Malike Cummings and Susan Malcolm represented the Turks and Caicos at the conference held last month.
