Nokia 7.2 leaked renders show circular camera design and waterdrop notch

first_img Sanket Vijayasarathy New DelhiAugust 19, 2019UPDATED: August 20, 2019 13:56 IST HIGHLIGHTSAlleged case renders of Nokia 7.2 show off circular camera design.Nokia 7.2 may come with triple rear camera and slim design.The phone may also feature a waterdrop notch.In the weeks leading up to HMD Global’s debut appearance at IFA 2019 in Berlin on September 5, we have been seeing a steady number of leaks surrounding some of the rumoured Nokia phones that the company plans to launch. Nokia 7.2 is expected to be one of the smartphones that will show up at HMD’s launch event at IFA. The successor to the Nokia 7.1 is widely rumoured to bring a new design language and upgraded hardware, but specific details are still a mystery. Some leaked renders this week of the alleged Nokia 7.2 have surfaced, giving us a look at its circular camera module, slim design and waterdrop notch.NokiaPowerUser received renders of Nokia 7.2 case listings found at some retail outlets. They show the purported Nokia 7.2 from the front and back. On the back, we see a Lumia-like circular camera module that houses three camera sensors and an LED flash. Just below the camera is the fingerprint sensor.Based on past rumours, the Nokia 7.2 (and possibly Nokia 6.2) will come with a 48MP main camera and a 120-degree wide-angle lens. The exact details of the cameras are unknown, but both the upcoming smartphones are widely expected to come with triple rear cameras.The renders further show a slim design language, which could either be real or simply to highlight the slimness of the case. The display shows no bezels at all, but that won’t be true. The Nokia 7.2 will come with bezels around the screen, but just how slim will the bezels be is something to be seen. As per the render, the Nokia 7.2 will sports a waterdrop notch like the recent Nokia 4.2. This will be an improvement over the Nokia 7.1 which offered a wide notch.advertisementThe Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2 have passed through the FCC certification site, which revealed that both the phones are likely to sport 6.3-inch displays. One of the devices may also get a Snapdragon 660 SoC.HMD’s September 5 event at IFA 2019 will likely see the launch of the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2. The company may also launch more phones, including feature phones.

Lawyer falls short in bid to test refugee rules urges others to

first_imgOTTAWA – A law that leaves refugees forever at risk of losing their permanent residency must continue to be tested before the courts, says a B.C. lawyer who fell short Thursday in his efforts to have the Supreme Court examine the issue.The top court declined to hear lawyer Douglas Cannon’s case, which involved a refugee hoping to obtain Canadian citizenship but would have touched on a much larger debate about the principles underpinning Canada’s asylum system.A refugee’s status can be revoked, but until 2012, such a development wouldn’t have impacted their permanent resident status and so the process, known as cessation, was rarely used.But that year, the Conservative government of the day changed the law and turned the revocation of permanent residency into a consequence of cessation, saying the intent was to go after immigration fraud.One thing that would prompt a second look at a file would be a trip to the person’s home country — a journey some do take for any number of reasons — but the government argued was a sign that maybe the person didn’t need refugee status in Canada.Now, however, that’s led to hundreds of people facing cessation proceedings and their cases are stuck in an already clogged system with little chance of a hearing any time soon, Cannon said.“This stuff isn’t going away,” Cannon said.“It will have to be litigated until the government changes its mind because it can’t afford to keep doing this.”Cannon’s client, Nisreen Nilam, won asylum in Canada in 2009 and permanent residency in 2011. Nilam later travelled back to his home country of Sri Lanka for two lengthy visits, using a Sri Lankan passport he’d applied for and then renewed.The immigration minister tried to remove Nilam’s refugee status; he in turn argued he was there to visit a sick mother and get married. The government initially lost, but the Immigration and Refugee Board was forced by the courts to reconsider.In the meantime, Nilam applied for Canadian citizenship. As a permanent resident, he’d met all the qualifications. That’s how the matter nearly ended up before the Supreme Court: since his permanent residency status was under review, the minister halted the citizenship application. Nilam sued, arguing that he met all the criteria for citizenship and that nowhere in citizenship law did it say cessation proceedings could interfere.A lower court sided with him, but the Federal Court of Appeal overturned that decision, agreeing with the government that if Nilam’s permanent residency was suspect, then he could not be considered for citizenship.While Cannon sought to test that legislative question before the Supreme Court, the broader one was that when a person becomes a permanent resident, that should then be the grounds of their status in Canada, not their refugee status.“Canada changed the fundamental basis of refugee protection when it decided to now make it conditional for all refugees, even if you are a permanent resident,” he said.“For people like Mr. Nilam who are hardworking, law-abiding, making contributions, raising families … it is a complete waste of resources and it is a complete waste of life to say, ‘Out you go, because we can,’ and there isn’t much basis to this.”NDP immigration critic Jenny Kwan said both elements — that the government can suspend the citizenship process for people who’ve met all the requirements, and the existence of cessation proceedings — are equally absurd.“The Liberals like to say ‘A Canadian is a Canadian,” she said, alluding to a phrase the Liberals have used in their recent legislation to make it easier for many others to obtain and keep Canadian citizenship.“Well, by extension, a permanent resident is a permanent resident and so why doesn’t that apply to refugees?”A spokesman for Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen referred questions about the issue to department, which said Thursday it was unable to comment.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version said Nilam was seeking to retain his Canadian citizenship.last_img read more

Smriti Irani a serial liar Cong

first_imgNew Delhi: Dubbing Union minister Smriti Irani a “serial liar”, the Congress on Friday alleged that she has “falsified records” of her educational qualifications and submitted contradictory affidavits to the Election Commission for which she should be disqualified.In a stinging attack on Irani, Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi, at a press conference, also sang the title track of the popular soap opera ‘Kyuki saas bhi Kabhi bahu thi’ by changing the lyrics to “qualification ke roop badalte hain…(qualification keeps changing)”. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The sharp attack came a day after the BJP candidate from Amethi Lok Sabha seat submitted to the Election Commission that she did not complete her graduation from Delhi University. “Union Minister Smriti Irani, who had been rubbishing Opposition’s claim that she is not a graduate, yesterday accepted that she enrolled for an undergraduate course in Delhi University but did not complete it,” Chaturvedi said. She should step down and also be disqualified from contesting the polls for misleading the public through her affidavits on educational qualification, Chaturvedi said. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K”We have no issue with the fact that Smriti Irani is not a graduate. The issue here is that she has lied repeatedly on oath and to the courts. People of India will see through these lies and give a befitting political reply to a ‘serial liar’!” she said. It is clear that she has not only “falsified records” but has submitted contradictory affidavits to the EC for which she is guilty of offence under Section 125A read with Section 33 of the Representation of Peoples Act, Chaturvedi said. There was no immediate reaction from the BJP over the issue. “She is also guilty of hiding information in the Delhi University and misusing her influence and power as a Union Minister. Constitutionally, legally and morally, it would be best if she steps down as the Union minister and by publicly accepting these lies,” Chaturvedi said. She also listed the various affidavits submitted by the BJP leader since 2004 to highlight the “contradiction and falsification of educational qualifications”. In 2004, Irani submitted an affidavit to ECI as Lok Sabha candidate from Chandni Chowk, Delhi, stating that her educational qualification as Bachelor of Arts in 1996 from Delhi University, School of Correspondence, Chaturvedi said. Irani in 2011 submitted an affidavit to ECI as Rajya Sabha candidate from Gujarat stating her educational qualification as B.Com. Part-I in 1994 from Delhi University, School of Correspondence, she said. Then in 2014, Irani submitted an affidavit to ECI as Lok Sabha candidate from Amethi, UP, stating that her educational qualification as B.Com. Part-I in 1994 from School of Open Learning, Delhi University. Chaturvedi said Irani was also quoted at a media event in August 2014 that she has a degree from the prestigious Yale University in the US. In her affidavit filed on Thursday during her nomination, Irani, who is contesting against Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, said she passed secondary school examination in 1991 and senior secondary school examination in 1993. She has said she did not complete her Bachelor of Commerce (Part-I) – a three-year degree course – from Delhi University’s School of Open Learning in 1994. The party also issued a statement that began with the mock lyrics “qualification ke roop badalte hain…kyunki mantri bhi kabhi graduate thi”. Irani, an actor-turned-politician, had essayed the lead role in ‘Kyuki saas bhi Kabhi bahu thi’ (Because a mother-in-law was once a daughter-in-law too).last_img read more

Countries agree on UNbacked roadmap to curb child labour

At the end of a two-day Global Child Labour Conference in The Hague yesterday, more than 450 delegates from 80 countries agreed on a so-called roadmap, which characterizes the effective abolition of child labour as a “moral necessity.”The programme also emphasizes that “government responsibility should be assumed at the highest level and with the best interests of children in mind taking into consideration the views of children and their families, and should include due attention to the most vulnerable children and the conditions that create their vulnerability.”As such, authorities should consider the impact of policies on the worst forms of child labour by taking in account gender and age, among other measures, it said.The UN International Labour Organization (ILO), which took part in the conference which wrapped up yesterday, has defined the worst forms of child labour as all forms of slavery, including child trafficking and use of children in armed conflict; child prostitution; and the use of children in illicit activities, including drug production.It also comprises hazardous work, which is classified as negatively impacting a child’s safety, health and moral development. Hazardous work conditions include night work, long hours and exposure to physical, psychological or sexual abuse.The discussions this week in The Hague “clearly show that if we stick to business as usual, the goal of eliminating the worst forms of child labour by 2016 will simply be missed,” said ILO Executive Director Kari Tapiola.A new ILO study issued over the weekend warned that efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labour are waning and called for a “re-energized” global campaign to end the scourge. The Global Report on Child Labour assessed progress made so far and highlighted the challenges that remain if the goal of eliminating the worst forms of child labour by the target date of 2016 is to be achieved.It noted a “slowing down of the global pace of reduction” – with the number of child labourers worldwide declining from 222 million to 215 million, or 3 per cent, from 2004 to 2008.“Progress is uneven: neither fast enough nor comprehensive enough to reach the goals that we have set,” said Juan Somavia, ILO Director-General.“New and large-scale efforts are needed. The situation calls for a re-energized campaign against child labour. We must scale up action and move into a higher gear.”The report also expressed concern that the global economic crisis could “further brake” progress toward the goal of eliminating the worst forms of child labour by 2016.“The economic downturn cannot become an excuse for diminished ambition and inaction. Instead it offers the opportunity to implement the policy measures that work for people, for recovery and for sustainable development,” said Mr. Somavia. 12 May 2010With more than 200 million children around the world working at the expense of their future, a new United Nations-backed action plan seeks to ramp up global action to stamp out the scourge by 2016. read more

Canadians dont expect to be mortgagefree until age 57 survey finds

The average Canadian homeowner doesn’t think they’ll be mortgage-free until they’re 57 — two years longer than what they expected last year, a survey by CIBC suggests.The survey also found that half of those surveyed said other debt, from credit cards to lines of credit, have increased and impeded their ability to pay off their mortgage more quickly.[np_storybar title=”Fewer Canadians plan to buy a home as housing market cools” link=”https://business.financialpost.com/2013/03/26/fewer-canadians-plan-to-buy-a-home-as-housing-market-cools/?__lsa=f147-fdfb”%5DFewer Canadians are planning to purchase a home in the next two years, according to an RBC study. The annual poll by Royal Bank found that 15% of those surveyed say they’re likely to buy in the next two years, a drop from 27% from the previous year. [/np_storybar]“Our view would be that Canadians are taking a look at their broader finances and are working to pay down other debts first to reduce their interest costs,” said Colette Delaney, executive vice-president of mortgage, lending, insurance and deposit products at CIBC in an email.“Those with a growing amount of non-mortgage debt are less likely to be taking extra steps to pay down their mortgage, and this can lead to a longer payback period.”Of those who said they have taken on additional debt since buying a home, only 11% were able to make an extra payment on their mortgage last year.Meanwhile, 19% of those who have not added to their debt loads since buying a home were able to make lump sum payments.The report released Friday also found those in British Columbia expected to be the oldest at 59 when they have paid off their mortgage, followed by those in Manitoba and Saskatchewan at 58.Elsewhere, the average expected age was 57 years old.Delaney said that the longer someone has to hold a mortgage may mean the less savings they have for retirement.“Being mortgage free sooner can help accelerate retirement savings, but carrying a mortgage into your late 50s can have the opposite effect and make it more challenging to reach your long term savings goals,” said Delaney.The poll was conducted online by Leger Marketing surveyed 1,503 adult Canadians mortgage-holders between Feb. 19 to 25.The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not randomly sample the population.Canadian Press read more

Human cause of global warming is near certainty UN reports

“Continued emissions of greenhouse gases will cause further warming and changes in all components of the climate system,” according to the report, which finalizes a summary of findings by the UN-backed Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued in September, outlining a litany of threats from the melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets to rising oceans to extreme weather events such as cyclones and heat waves. “Limiting climate change will require substantial and sustained reductions of greenhouse gas emissions,” it stresses, using the term “extremely likely” for human causality since the mid-20th century, meaning there is a 95 to 100 per cent probability that humankind, and not naturally occurring phenomena, are to blame, a 5 percent increase from the 90 to 100 per cent “very likely” probability of if the IPCC’s last report in 2007. Even if emissions of global warming carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are stopped, most aspects of climate change will persist for many centuries. “This represents a substantial multi-century climate change commitment created by past, present and future emissions of CO2,” the report warns. “Human influence has been detected in warming of the atmosphere and the ocean, in changes in the global water cycle, in reductions in snow and ice, in global mean sea level rise, and in changes in some climate extremes,” it says. “This evidence for human influence has grown since AR4 (the last IPCC report). It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century.” The report says it is extremely likely that more than half the observed increase in global average surface temperature from 1951 to 2010 was caused by the increase in greenhouse gas caused by humans and other human causes. Some of the major warming emissions caused by humankind since the birth of the industrial era 250 years ago – CO2, methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O) – have all increased since 1750 due to human activity. “Human influence has been detected in warming of the atmosphere and the ocean, in changes in the global water cycle, in reductions in snow and ice, in global mean sea level rise, and in changes in some climate extremes. This evidence for human influence has grown since AR4. It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century,” the report stresses.“Concentrations of CO2, CH4, and N2O now substantially exceed the highest concentrations recorded in ice cores during the past 800,000 years. The mean rates of increase in atmospheric concentrations over the past century are, with very high confidence, unprecedented in the last 22,000 years.”It notes that each of the last three decades has been successively warmer at the Earth’s surface than any preceding decade since 1850, changes in many extreme weather and climate events have been observed since about 1950, the frequency of heat waves has likely increased in large parts of Europe, Asia and Australia.There are also likely more land regions where the number of heavy precipitation events has increased than where it has decreased and the frequency or intensity of heavy precipitation has likely increased in North America and Europe. Likely means a 66 to 100 per cent probability.On the cryosphere (cold regions) the report notes that annual mean Arctic sea ice decreased over the period 1979 to 2012 at a rate very likely in the range 3.5 to 4.1 per cent per decade and in the range 9.4 to 13.6 per cent per decade the summer sea ice minimum (perennial sea ice).There is very high confidence that the extent of Northern Hemisphere snow cover has decreased since the mid-20th century, decreasing by an average 1.6 per cent per decade for March and April, and 11.7 per cent per decade for June, over the 1967 to 2012 period. There is also high confidence that permafrost temperatures have increased in most regions since the early 1980s. Observed warming was up to 3° Celsius in parts of Northern Alaska and up to 2°C in parts of the Russian European North, where a considerable reduction in permafrost thickness and areal extent has been observed over the period 1975 to 2005.As for the sea level, the rise since the mid-19th century has been larger than the mean rate during the previous two millennia, its global mean level rising 0.19 metres over the period 1901 to 2010. Global surface temperature change for the end of the 21st century is likely to exceed 1.5°C relative to 1850 to 1900 for most scenarios studied by IPCC, and likely or “more likely than not” to exceed 2°C for some of them. Warming will continue beyond 2100 under all scenarios except one, will continue to show inter-annual-to-decadal variability and will not be regionally uniform.It is very likely that Arctic sea ice cover will continue to shrink and thin and that Northern Hemisphere spring snow cover will decrease during the 21st century as global mean surface temperature rises. Global glacier volume will further decrease, the report adds.Global mean sea level, meanwhile, will continue to rise during the 21st century, very likely exceeding the rate observed during 1971 to 2010 due to increased ocean warming and increased loss of mass from glaciers and ice sheets. read more

Libya UN mission documents 49 civilian casualties in June

Victims included four children killed and eight injured, 12 men killed and 20 injured, and two women killed and three injured from 1 June to 30 June 2016. In its monthly report, UNSMIL noted that the majority of civilian deaths were caused by vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (seven deaths and 19 injured), while the next leading cause of death was air strikes (six deaths and seven injured), followed by shelling (three deaths, two injured), gun shots (two deaths) and explosive remnants of war (three injured). UNSMIL documented 10 deaths and 24 injured in Benghazi, six deaths and seven injured in Derna, and two deaths in Tripoli. The Libyan National Army/Libyan Air Force confirmed that they had carried out the airstrikes in Derna and said that they will conduct an investigation. UNSMIL was unable to determine with certainty which other parties caused civilian casualties in June, according to the report. During the course of the month, medical facilities in Benghazi were targeted four times, on 1, 21, 22 and 24 June. Only the car bomb explosion on 24 June, at the entrance of the Al-Jalla hospital in Benghazi, led to casualties, killing five people and injuring 13, including two children. UNSMIL also received information on the deaths of two men following their abductions. Their bodies showed signs of torture as well as gunshot wounds to the head and other parts of the body. In another case, a man died in custody, several days after detention. His body showed signs of torture and gunshot wounds. The mission also documented the killing of 12 prisoners on 9 June in Tripoli, after a court ordered their release. The circumstances of the killings are unclear. It was also reported that two men, who had been detained by the Central Security Force and accused of criminality, were publicly executed in Gaser Bengashire, on the outskirts of Tripoli. Reports indicated that there was no legal process prior to the killings, according to UNSMIL. In addition, following clashes in Qarabuli, reportedly between Misratan forces and locals, a storage site exploded, reportedly killing dozens of people, UNSMIL said. The monthly figures are based on information UNSMIL gathered and cross-checked from a broad range of sources in Libya, including human rights defenders, civil society, current and former officials, employees of local governments, community leaders and members, witnesses, others directly affected and media reports. Earlier this month, Martin Kobler, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of UNSMIL, reported to the Security Council about the “tragic” humanitarian situation in the country, underlining that “personal tragedies and collective suffering” are the consequence of the continued lack of State authority in most parts of the North African country. On 13 June, the Security Council decided to extend UNSMIL’s mandate in Libya until 15 December. read more

Daniel Boom Herron ignites Ohio States offense

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Ohio State football’s trip to Champaign, Ill., to play then-No.16 Illinois saw the Buckeyes facing adverse circumstances. A breakout 2011 debut for senior running back Daniel “Boom” Herron helped the Buckeyes overcome those and upset Illinois, 17-7. Coming off two consecutive losses to Big Ten opponents, OSU also had to contend with the wind at Memorial Stadium, which gusted and swirled throughout the game, as well as the Fighting Illini offensive and defensive units, ranked third and fourth in the conference, respectively. Originally slated to miss the first five games of the season for selling OSU football memorabilia in exchange for improper benefits in the form of tattoos, Herron was suspended for a sixth game for being overpaid for work he did not do at a summer job in the off-season. Herron had an immediate impact in his first game Saturday, though, rushing for 23 yards on three carries on OSU’s first possession of the game, which resulted in a 43-yard field goal attempt into the wind that sophomore kicker Drew Basil knocked in to put OSU up, 3-0. OSU took a 3-0 lead into half and had Herron out-gaining every player on both teams to that point with 70 yards on 12 carries. “This is what (Herron’s) been working for,” first-year OSU head coach Luke Fickell said after the game. “He’s gone through a lot. He’s sacrificed a lot and he’s learned a lot. He’s a big part of our team. “He’s excited about it (being back) and I know the guys in the locker room are excited about it,” Fickell said. On OSU’s first play from scrimmage in the second half, Herron darted for the corner of the Illinois end zone and scored on a 12-yard run to put the Buckeyes up, 10-0. Freshman corner back Bradley Roby intercepted a pass from Illini sophomore quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase and returned it 36 yards to position Herron for the score. Herron is no stranger to putting points on the scoreboard for OSU, having posted a touchdown in 13 consecutive games for OSU. “I was definitely happy to be back on the field,” Herron said postgame. “Missing the first six games was definitely hard on me and I was very anxious to get back out there.” Despite not playing a single down for OSU since the Sugar Bowl Jan. 4 — a game that has since been vacated along with the rest of OSU’s 2010 season — Herron didn’t appear to miss a beat in his first competitive action in more than nine months. “We have a great defense and I was definitely working with them (in practice),” Herron said. “They definitely made me better. I haven’t played a game yet, so you could say I was fresh.” The Buckeyes’ freshman quarterback Braxton Miller attempted just four passes in the game and the rest of OSU’s offensive attack was comprised of 51 rushing attempts. Illinois coach Ron Zook said his team knew the Buckeyes were going to try to run the ball on Saturday but they still couldn’t stop OSU on the ground, especially Herron. “They have a … pretty good running back (Herron) and I think that was one of the things they were excited about, was having (Herron) back,” Zook said. “He did a great job and you can see why he’s one of the better backs in the Big Ten.” Herron agreed that OSU’s run-intensive game plan was predictable, and gave credit to the offensive line for the collective success of OSU’s backs, who finished the game with 211 yards. “We didn’t really pass the ball a lot, and that’s a big part of it,” Herron said. “I would say the offensive line did a great job today.” Early in the fourth quarter, another turnover put the Illini in a deeper hole. Miller found junior tight end Jake Stoneburner for a 17-yard pass for a touchdown to put OSU up, 17-0. The completion was the only one of the day for Miller. OSU junior linebacker Storm Klein recovered a fumble on Illinois’ 37-yard line to set the table for Miller and Stoneburner’s scoring play. Illinois was held scoreless for more than 53 minutes but finally broke through on an 80-yard scoring drive that Scheelhaase capped with a 3-yard touchdown pass to sophomore tight end Evan Wilson. The score cut Illinois’ deficit to 10 points, but the comeback fell short in the end. The Illini drove for another late score, but Scheelhaase threw an incomplete pass to senior receiver A.J. Jenkins on fourth down from OSU’s 17-yard line with 1:11 remaining in the contest. Roby provided coverage on the play. For the game, OSU’s defense limited Illinois’ offense to 285 total yards while also collecting two interceptions and a fumble. OSU regained possession after Scheelhaase’s ineception and Herron, who finished the game with 114 yards on 23 carries, helped bleed the clock out to clinch the victory. “Like I said, today was my first game and I didn’t want to go out there and make crazy things happen,” Herron said. “Now that I’m back out here, I’m going to do everything I can to help the team out and be a leader and get us more wins.” With Herron’s return, only senior receiver DeVier Posey remains suspended for the Buckeyes. Posey sold OSU football memorabilia in exchange for improper benefits in the form of tattoos and was also overpaid for work he did not do at a summer job. Herron and the Buckeyes will return to Big Ten Leaders Division play Oct. 29 at Ohio Stadium against No. 4-ranked Wisconsin (6-0, 2-0). Kick-off is set for 8 p.m. read more

I tried to fight so hard I was chained and I had

first_img 40 Comments 60,264 Views Short URL By Cormac Fitzgerald https://jrnl.ie/4611526 A VICTIM OF human trafficking – who was forced to work in prostitution in Ireland by a criminal gang – has spoken out about her ordeal, asking the men who use prostitutes to think of the women involved. “Mary” – not her real name – will speak tonight on RTÉ’s Crimecall about what happened her when she first arrived in Ireland. Mary had been led to believe that she was going to be working in a hospital, but instead the men who met her at Dublin Airport brought her to a brothel. “They took everything, our passports and our bags,” Mary told the attackers.She said that while she was there she tried to resist her traffickers, but was unable to escape. “I tried to fight so hard. I was chained and I had bruises, but they said ‘it ‘doesn’t matter’,” she said. Mary spoke about her ordeal, and what she had to do while she was kept by her traffickers. “I remember they brought us… bikinis and there was some other sex toys,” she said.  You’re just in your room and different men come in they knock on your door and you can’t say no.She talked about how her abuse continued for nearly a year, before she managed to escape. Speaking tonight, she will appeal for people to think about the lives of the women involved in prostitution. “To the men they don’t know the people they are using… Let them imagine it was their daughters or their sisters… we are all human beings with the same blood,” she said. Under laws brought into Ireland in 2017, it is illegal to purchase sex.Gardaí said earlier that they had stopped and questioned 36 people over the weekend as part of an intelligence-led operation targeting the demand for prostitution and the purchasing of sexual services.Commenting on Mary’s story, Sarah Benson – CEO of Ruhama, a charity set up to work with women affected by prostitution – said that men buying sex was not “a benign act without consequence”. “It has fundamentally dehumanising effects for the most vulnerable members of our community. And since 2017 it has been a crime,” she said.  Pimps and traffickers have no market if men are not buying sex.Other groups – like the Sex Workers Alliance Ireland (SWAI) – have claimed that the new laws have made life more dangerous for sex workers by pushing them further underground.  Share Tweet Email2 center_img Image: Crimecall Image: Crimecall Apr 29th 2019, 7:41 PM ‘I tried to fight so hard.

Call for school jobs for priests

first_imgArchbishop Ieronymos has reiterated the Church’s demand for compulsory religion lessons in schools in a letter to Education and Religion Minister Aris Spiliotopoulos, last week.The main focus of the archbishop’s letter is a request for the hiring of some 4,000 unemployed theology school graduates. Ieronymos is reported to have asked for them to be appointed as teachers in schools or as guides on “religious tourism” tours and in museums displaying ecclesiastical relics. A Holy Synod source said, “We are sorry that certain ministry officials… are bothered by the Church’s established stance on religion lessons and not by the chronic problem of unemployment faced by thousands of theologians.” Spiliotopoulos said he would consider the archbishop’s request once he had read the letter.

Seul un couple sur deux souffrant dinfertilité réussit à avoir un enfant

first_imgSeul un couple sur deux souffrant d’infertilité réussit à avoir un enfantUne récente étude menée par des chercheurs français pointe du doigt l’âge de l’homme comme un facteur majeur dans la difficulté de certains couples à procréer. Aujourd’hui, seul un couple sur deux ayant consulté pour une infertilité masculine parvient à avoir un enfant.Une équipe de chercheurs de l’Université de Toulouse dirigée par Marie Walschaerts et Louis Bujan, a mené une étude sur l’infertilité humaine et s’est particulièrement concentrée sur la stérilité masculine. Ils ont évalué le taux de succès chez les couples suivis par le Centre de stérilité masculine de Toulouse entre 2000 à 2004. Des couples contactés par téléphone en 2008 afin de connaître leur situation quatre ans au moins après qu’ils ont cessé de consulter les médecins du centre.À lire aussiUne femme donne naissance à un bébé cyclope en Egypte1131 couples ont répondu, sur 1735 joints par téléphone, et 56% avaient réussi à avoir un enfant. Un taux qui passe à 60% si l’on inclut l’adoption. Dans 16% des cas, l’enfant est né suite à une grossesse naturelle, grâce à un traitement médical ou chirurgical pour 8%, et enfin grâce à une assistance médicale à la procréation (AMP) dans 32% des cas.Sur les 1735 couples concernés par l’étude, le taux de succès est estimé à environ 48%. Les chercheurs ont alors noté l’importance de l’âge de l’homme dans ce taux, qui passe à 64% pour les hommes et les femmes âgés de moins de 35 ans, et chute à seulement 31% chez les couples plus âgés. “L’âge de l’homme ressort réellement et le taux de succès n’est pas lié uniquement à l’âge de la femme” souligne Marie Walschaerts auprès de l’AFP. Une conclusion qui doit selon elle “encourager les couples à consulter plus tôt”.Le 26 janvier 2012 à 13:21 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

EtatsUnis les produits Apple en tête des ventes de Noël

first_imgEtats-Unis : les produits Apple en tête des ventes de NoëlDes statistiques publiées par le NPD Group soulignent le succès d’Apple. Pendant les fêtes de fin d’années, 19% des ventes d’équipements électroniques aux États-Unis ont concerné des produits de la firme à la pomme.Monopoliser les ventes d’une branche entière de l’industrie n’est pas donné à tout le monde ! Mais c’est un tour de force qu’a réussi Apple durant les fêtes de fin d’année, période à laquelle les magasins sont grandement dévalisés. En effet, d’après les chiffres révélés par le NPD Group, 19% des produits électroniques vendus à Noël ont concerné ceux de la firme à la pomme.  Ainsi, Apple aurait progressé de 36% par rapport à l’année dernière alors que Hewlett-Packard encaisserait -3 % , Samsung -6 %, Sony -21 % et Dell -21 %. Des chiffres qui traduisent le coup de mou que connait le marché de l’électronique  : une baisse de 5 %.En outre, en 2011, côté chiffre d’affaires, Apple est devenu la marque d’électronique la plus vendue aux USA, mais aussi le 3e vendeur d’électronique, derrière Walmart et Best Buy, mais devant Staples et Amazon. Sans surprise, la société californienne doit en grande partie son succès à son réseau de boutiques, devenu incontournable aux États-Unis. D’une manière général, les PC représentent 20 % du marché de l’électronique. La part de marché des tablettes/liseuses a par contre doublé et atteint 10,7 %. Les mobiles restent à une proportion stables, 8,5 % des ventes d’électroniques. Alors qu’Apple s’apprête à s’attaquer au domaine des téléviseurs, la concurrence s’annonce encore rude au cours des prochains mois.  Le 20 février 2012 à 13:20 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

A hopeful sendoff for WSUVs class of 2019

first_imgRIDGEFIELD — Nothing is more hopeful than a graduation ceremony. On Saturday, Washington State University Vancouver graduating senior and commencement speaker Ian Muck told his own “peculiar,” true-life tale about never giving up hope.Muck started college abroad, vowing never to attend his hometown campus. But pressing family needs pulled him back, and he returned to Clark County feeling “completely lost,” he said.Then he enrolled at WSUV, he said, and started finding himself. He also found hope, despite a world that seems weighed down by woes, he said. Muck said he’s had the opportunity to connect with all sorts of people and learn about the importance of “standing up to bigotry and hate.”At WSUV, Muck majored in public affairs and minored in history; he was a facilitator and research assistant for the WSU-Vancouver Foley Institute for Public Policy, while also presiding over the Associated Students of WSU Vancouver organization and the Cougar Pride Club.“Look at me now,” Muck said from the podium at Sunlight Supply Amphitheater, where WSUV’s huge commencement ceremony was held on Saturday. There were 39 doctoral candidates, 88 master’s candidates and 918 bachelor’s degree candidates, for a total of 1,045 graduates; the amphitheater was packed to standing-room-only with families, friends and fans.last_img read more
