The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) had said that the invitation was a “reflection of the personal chemistry” between the two leaders and also “recognition of India as a major economic power”. The countries which are part of the G7 include the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the US. On the sidelines of the G7 Summit, Modi and US President Donald Trump are likely to discuss the situation in Kashmir, trade issues and other topics of mutual interest.

UN envoy in Afghanistan welcomes start of process to elect Loya Jirga

Calling it a “great day” for Afghanistan, Mr. Brahimi said he hoped that people throughout the country “will get together peacefully in a fraternal spirit, and together will make the choice without interference, without pressure, without any intimidation from any side” during the election.The UNAMA chief made his comments in Afghanistan’s Jowzjan province, where he was welcomed by a cheering crowd as children sang and danced. Addressing the people in the audience – who had arrived by car, truck, horse and foot – Mr. Brahimi voiced hope that they would freely choose representatives to serve on the Loya Jirga.During this first stage of the process, Afghans in about 300 districts are expected to select potential candidates to form a pool from which 1,500 members will be selected in a second stage of elections after 20 May.The Commission for the Loya Jirga has made special provisions for the participation of women in the body, according to the UNAMA Director of the Field Coordination Division, Anders Fange. Briefing reporters in Kabul on Sunday, he noted that although women were entitled to present themselves as candidates for the open seats, relatively few would feel confident doing this. “The Commission has therefore reserved 160 seats for women, equivalent to 11 per cent of the seats” he said, adding that this gender composition “would put Afghanistan ahead of all Muslim countries.”Meanwhile, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) today said food rations continued to be delivered to the areas hit by Friday’s earthquake in Afghanistan. UNAMA has helped to distribute thousands of WFP aid packages to affected families.In another development, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Ruud Lubbers, arrived today in the western city of Herat as part of his tour of the region. On Sunday, Mr. Lubbers ended his two-day visit to Iran by walking into Afghanistan alongside some 1,000 Afghan refugees heading home under a new UNHCR repatriation initiative.”I’m now the High Commissioner for Returnees,” he told the press at the frontier, where UNHCR expects the majority of Iran’s 1.5 million Afghan refugees to cross homewards over the next few years as the situation stabilizes in their homeland. read more

Recruitment company employing private investigators to probe British troops in Iraq given

first_imgMike Penning, the armed forces minister, said Red Snapper had been paid £20.8 million since winning the contract to provide staff for the Iraq Historic Allegations Team (Ihat) in 2013 The recruitment company that employs private investigators to probe the conduct of British troops in Iraq has been received more than £20 million in taxpayers money, it can be disclosed.Ministers revealed the huge sums paid to Red Snapper Recruitment amid growing calls for the inquiry into alleged historic abuse be shut down.Mike Penning, the armed forces minister, said in a parliamentary written answer that Red Snapper had been paid £20.8 million since winning the contract to provide staff for the Iraq Historic Allegations Team (Ihat) in 2013.The scale of the payments has appalled MPs calling for Ihat to be closed down. Ihat is investigating almost 1,500 cases of alleged abuse in Iraq Sir Henry Bellingham, Conservative MP for North West Norfolk who asked the parliamentary question, said he was “staggered, flabbergasted and appalled” by the amount.“It seems to me that the sole purpose of this recruitment drive is to find people who want to go out and destroy the lives of our brave veterans,” said Sir Henry, “All of the alleged crimes have already been fully investigated and what the Iraq Historic Allegations Team and Red Snapper are doing completely breaches our basic laws of natural justice. “I cannot think of another country in the world that would treat its veterans in this way.”Johnny Mercer, Conservative MP and chairman of a parliamentary inquiry into the treatment of troops under Ihat investigation, said: “Ihat has been a spectacular failure. It has failed to complete its core function of prosecuting those who have broken the law; it has taken a devastating toll in the – at times unlawful – pursuit of those who have done no wrong; and it is an appalling waste of public money.” Ihat is investigating almost 1,500 cases of alleged abuse in IraqCredit: Sipa Press / Rex Featurescenter_img Red Snapper supplies 127 investigators, many of them retired police officers on full pay, to Ihat. The company’s founders – Martin Jerrold and his wife Helen – have paid themselves hundreds of thousands of pounds in dividends since winning the Ihat contract in 2013 after a bidding process. Mr Jerrold insists the contract returns a small profit of three percent and that the company has other successful contracts besides Ihat.The contract is worth just under £5 million a year – equivalent to about 12 per cent of Red Snapper’s total turnover. It is not clear why Red Snapper has received £20.8 million since 2013 but it is possible it has received extra payments for processing travel costs and expenses on which it makes no profit.Ihat is investigating almost 1,500 cases of alleged abuse in Iraq. Since it was set up in 2010, no soldier has been prosecuted as a result of an Ihat investigation.

Cameco mobilises to check soil contamination

first_imgCameco reported July 20 that during a construction project it discovered uranium and evidence of other production-associated chemicals in the soil beneath its Port Hope uranium hexafluoride (UF6) conversion plant. The company said “the affected area appears to be within, and near, the perimeter walls of the UF6 plant based on the preliminary information available at this time. Ongoing subsoil investigations are expected to provide additional information. Cameco has suspended operations at the UF6 conversion plant and a thorough investigation is being conducted. The chemicals are in a contained area so public health and worker safety are not affected.”The discovery was made in an area being excavated within the building to install new equipment. Cameco and third-party experts are investigating to determine the source of the chemicals. In addition, holes are being drilled around the area and the soil and groundwater are being tested to ascertain the area affected. All regulatory authorities have been notified. Due to the nature of soil at the plant, Cameco expects the ground water flow rate, with the chemicals, to average approximately 40 to 60 m/y. The perimeter of the plant is about 70 m from the edge of the property. This provides ample time to address, contain and mitigate the affected area. Cameco has monitoring wells around the property to detect chemicals in the area. These wells are checked quarterly and reported to the regulator annually. The last scheduled samples were taken in April and did not indicate potential issues. Cameco has arranged for additional samples to be taken. Full production of UF6 will likely be suspended for a minimum of two months until Cameco has determined the source of the chemicals and developed appropriate plans. There is no cost estimate for this activity available at this time. Uranium dioxide (UO2) conversion and other activities at the site are not affected. The company says it is assessing the impact of this situation on its production forecasts and will provide a revised forecast in its second quarter report. It “plans to meet scheduled deliveries for the remainder of the year based on existing inventory.”last_img read more

Les naines brunes dévoilent leurs secrets aux astronomes

first_imgLes naines brunes dévoilent leurs secrets aux astronomesL’étude des naines brunes n’en est qu’à ses balbutiements. Mais des scientifiques viennent de découvrir que certaines de ces étoiles avaient une température de surface inférieure à 200°C.Les étoiles de type naines brunes intriguent depuis longtemps les chercheurs. Relativement petites, froides, ne produisant que très peu de lumière, la limite avec les planètes gazeuses n’est pas très loin. Une nouvelle étude, parue dans la revue Science, apporte quelques informations sur leur véritable nature, notamment qu’elles sont un peu plus chaudes que prévu.Des étoiles ratéesLes astronomes avaient déjà théorisé l’existence des naines brunes dans les années 60, mais il a fallu attendre 1995 pour observer la première. Depuis, plus de 1.800 étoiles de ce type ont été répertoriées, les plus proches se trouvant à seulement 6,5 années-lumière de la Terre.On les désigne parfois sous le terme “d’étoiles ratées”, car elles sont trop petites et trop légères pour avoir pu déclencher le processus de fusion nucléaire et “s’allumer” comme les étoiles classiques. Leur source d’énergie vient seulement de leur gravité, qui par contraction produit une énergie interne et une faible luminosité.”Si on trouvait un de ces objets en orbite autour d’une étoile, il y a de fortes chances que l’on pense à une planète” déclare ainsi Trent Dupuy, un des chercheurs du centre d’Astrophysique Harvard-Smithonian. “Mais comme elle se sont probablement formées toutes seules, et pas dans un disque proto-planétaire, les astronomes les appellent quand même étoiles, même si leur masse est équivalente à celle d’une planète”.Une faible températureÉtudier ce type d’astres est très difficile, car leur lumière est non seulement très faible mais aussi émise dans l’infrarouge. Pour évaluer leur température, les scientifiques doivent donc d’abord établir la distance exacte à laquelle elles se trouvent. “Nous voulions savoir si elles étaient plus froides, plus faibles et proches ou au contraire plus chaudes, brillantes et lointaines” explique Dupuy.En réalisant leur étude, ce chercheur et ses collègues ont découvert des températures situées entre 120 et 180 degrés Celsius, soit un peu plus chaud que ce que la théorie prévoyait.Afin de déterminer leur distance par rapport à nous, les scientifiques ont mesuré leur parallaxe, autrement dit, le changement de position devant le fond céleste. Ils ont pour cela utilisé le télescope spatial de la NASA Spitzer.”Pour mesurer avec précision ces distances, nos mesures doivent être aussi précises que si l’on devait connaitre la position d’une mouche de 1 cm à 300 km de distance” explique Adam Kraus, auteur de l’étude. Les calculs des scientifiques ont alors révélé que le groupe d’étoiles étudiées se situait à entre 20 et 50 années-lumière de la Terre.Atmosphère métallique À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreParmi les autres données, les chercheurs ont constaté que des métaux alcalins de la surface de ces étoiles avaient tendance à disparaitre, certainement pour être incorporés dans l’atmosphère sous forme de nuages. Ces premières données sont importantes pour mieux comprendre ces étoiles qui conservent encore beaucoup de mystère. Les scientifiques comptent donc bien poursuivre les recherches.Les prochaines études sur les naines brunes leur permettront ainsi d’en savoir encore davantage sur leur formation, et de trouver de nouvelles étoiles encore plus froides.(Crédit photo :  NASA/JPL-Caltech)Le 14 septembre 2013 à 15:47 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

4 seek to unseat Herrera Beutler

first_imgLONGVIEW — If Federal Election Commission reports are like pulse checks for political campaigns, the latest quarterly filings indicate WSU Vancouver professor Carolyn Long is off to a healthy start in her bid to unseat Southwest Washington Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler.But there’s still a yawning chasm separating Long from the Republican incumbent and her closest Democratic opponent.Long reported raising $40,106 since formally announcing her candidacy on Nov. 30, with $34,606 of that coming from individual donors.After spending $17,676 on her campaign, the first-time candidate had $22,205 in cash on hand as of Dec. 31Meanwhile, two-time congressional candidate David McDevitt — who was sitting on a $309,162 war chest at year’s end — raised $4,435 from individual donors last quarter, the period from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31.The Vancouver businessman has loaned his own campaign $300,000 so far, while spending a meager $2,551 between October and December last year. He reported $10,412 in campaign-related expenses for all of last year.Long and McDevitt were the only two Democratic challengers to file their FEC reports on time.Peter Harrison, a Vancouver-based scientist and writer who’s also running for the seat, told The Daily News he’s been focused on saying goodbye to his father, who passed away Thursday while in hospice care.Harrison reported raising $2,312 between February and September last year. After spending $4,381 on operating expenses, his campaign was showing a negative balance.An up-to-date FEC report for Iraq war veteran Dorothy Gasque also was not posted online Thursday, and her campaign treasurer did not respond to a request for comment.last_img read more

Camas not throwing away its shot

first_imgCAMAS — There was no passing tumbleweed nor did the sound of clanging boot spurs fill the air, but Camas transformed into the Wild West on a recent weekday.Merchants in cowboy hats and bandannas marched down Northeast Fourth Avenue and announced it was time to go rogue.Camas wasn’t selected as the featured city on the upcoming season of “Small Business Revolution — Main Street,” an online show that offers a small town $500,000 to give makeovers to local businesses. Still, efforts to get on the show spurred a lot of local enthusiasm, and the Downtown Camas Association and local merchants aren’t ready to ride off into the sunset.“We’re a fighting town,” said Ann Matthews, owner of Arktana, a shoe and clothing store in downtown Camas. “We fight for what we’re passionate about. It’s hard to tell us no.”They filmed their downtown march in a video produced by Ernie Geigenmiller, owner of Camas-based Lacamas Magazine, an online publication. He also filmed video features on various businesses around the city while Camas tried to get on the show.The Wild West-themed video was used in a pitch to the show’s producers for a Camas-centered spinoff called “Small Business Revolution Out West,” as the show has only featured towns located in Indiana, Pennsylvania, Illinois and the upcoming season in Arkansas. Camas merchants haven’t received an answer on their pitch, but were told that they’re the only city in the show’s four seasons to make such an offer.last_img read more

Higuain keen on Milan stay after goal heroics

I came to Milan because I was convinced by the project here and I want to continue like this.“Gattuso has always supported me and above all been honest. This goal is for him.”Milan had Suso sent off and he’ll, therefore, be suspended for the Italian Super Cup clash with Juventus.“Now we’ve got the Supercoppa, it’s the first trophy of the season and we want to win.”last_img read more

Microsoft Announces Its Tablet

first_imgThe two versions are differentiated by more than just their capacity. The 32-GB version features the Windows RT operating system, which is Microsoft’s mobile version of its Windows OS. The 64-GB device will feature a full version 8 of Windows. Additionally, the 32-GB Surface has stepped-down USB 2.0 and MicroSD slots. The smaller Surface is also lighter—676 grams versus 903 grams on the 64-GB version.The Surface, as many of the reports are noting, is a very different tactical move for Microsoft in that it’s producing a piece of hardware—something that Bloomberg Businesweek’s Ashlee Vance points out is competitive to not only Apple, but other PC makers such as HP, Dell and Acer. It’s also a move that, like it or not, veers Microsoft much closer to Apple’s hardware/software strategic playbook. As of yet, no pricing information is available. Microsoft has announced that it’s entering in the tablet arms race with its own product, a touchscreen tablet called Surface that will debut in two versions this fall.The company is stretching the term a bit, Surface’s cover is actually a 3mm-thick keyboard (that comes in 5 different colors) and the device features a “kickstand” that swings out from the back to prop the tablet up. Lean-back goes to lean-forward.Other features include a 10.6-inch display, cameras on the front and back, a USB port and a MicroSD card slot to handle more media. last_img read more

Cogdill, The Associated Press Posted May 13, 2019 7:48 am PDT This cover image released by Little, Brown and Company shows “If She Wakes,” by Michael Koryta. ( Little, Brown and Company via AP) “If She Wakes” (Little, Brown), by Michael KorytaMulti-award winning author Michael Koryta again shows his affinity for smoothly melding sophisticated action with solid character development — even when one of the individuals is in a coma — as happens in “If She Wakes.”“If She Wakes” not only works well as a quintessential thriller but also as a tale about rebuilding one’s life and not giving up on one’s self amid insurmountable odds.Bright, personable Tara Beckley, a student at Maine’s Hammel College, ends up in a coma after being injured in a horrific car accident in which visiting professor Amandi Oltamu is killed. Tara had been driving Amandi to deliver the keynote speech about his groundbreaking work on batteries and solar panels. The professor insisted they take an alternate route and had wanted them to stop on a bridge so he could take photographs with his phone when they were struck by another vehicle.Hammel College hires insurance investigator Abby Kaplan to look into the collision to avoid any lawsuits over the death or Tara’s hospital bills. But Abby is a former stunt driver with an encyclopedic knowledge of accidents, having recently been in a high-profile collision that resulted in a fatality. It soon becomes clear that this accident could not have happened as the police reports stated. Soon more deaths linked to the incident occur. As Abby investigates, Tara remains in the locked-in syndrome, able to hear what is going on around her in the hospital room but unable to communicate.While “If She Wakes” is a stand-alone thriller, Koryta brings back, in a way, brothers Jack and Patrick Blackwell, professional killers who first appeared in 2014’s “Those Who Wish Me Dead.” While the brothers are now dead, their legacy looms large, especially in the form of Dax Blackwell, a teenage assassin who is more violent than his father or uncle.Koryta is such a polished writer that his plots zip by as he delves into the amorality of Dax and the humanity of Abby and Tara, whose personality emerges, despite being paralyzed. Believable twists propel the tense “If She Wakes” as it moves to a surprising finale.Oline H. Cogdill, The Associated Presslast_img read more
