MINURSO Morocco Convenes Meeting With GCC Countries at the United Nations

United Nations – Morocco has called for a meeting with Gulf countries (Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates) at level of Ambassadors on Monday morning, a source from inside the United Nations told Morocco World News. The meeting comes to discuss the latest developments concerning the draft resolution that will be submitted to the Security Council for consideration on Tuesday.The same sources told Morocco World News that the United States, the penholder of resolutions on the Western Sahara has submitted the draft resolution it prepared over the weekend to the Group of Friends of the Western Sahara without informing Morocco of its content. In addition to the United States, the Group of Friend of Western Sahara includes France, the United Kingdom, Russia and Spain.In the past, the US had by practice previously consulted with Morocco before submitting the draft resolution to the other members of the Security Council.An UN expert who has been following negotiations on the draft resolution told MWN the US move might signal they text it prepared might include provisions that are not in favor of Morocco, such as the call for the return of the civilian component of the UN mission in the Sahara, MINURSO.The same said Morocco’s decision to request a meeting with GCC countries responds to the need to mobilize these countries and urge them to put on pressure on the influential members of the Security Council to avoid the adoption of any resolution that might go against Morocco’s interests.During the first Morocco-GCC summit last Wednesday, the six members of this regional block expressed their full support for Morocco’s sovereignty on the Western Sahara.“We stress our support to all political and security causes that are important for your brotherly country, mainly the Western Sahara,” King Salman of Saudi Arabia said during the opening speech of the Morocco-GCC summit. read more

Electricity cost drop expected at TransSiberian Golds Far East of Russia mine

first_imgTrans-Siberian Gold’s Asacha mine is set to benefit from government-backed incentive measures to support the development of the Far East of Russia.The company reported that it has entered into a new electricity supply agreement with Kamchatskenergo, which will supply power to Asacha at a reduced price of RUB4.69/kWh ($0.07/kWh).The agreement with Kamchatskenergo, a subsidiary of RAO Energy Systems of the East Group (part of the RusHydro Group), is for an initial period of 12 months.Alexander Dorogov, CEO of TSG, said: “Power is a significant production cost and we are pleased to have secured a substantial cost saving with the support of the regional Government of Kamchatka. We are grateful for this, which affirms the Far East of Russia as an attractive place for gold mining.”Meanwhile, operational performance at Asacha continued to improve in the second half of 2018. In the December quarter, improving gold grades led to higher output, the company said. This meant the company was expected to slightly exceed the upper end of its 2018 gold production guidance of 36,000-40,000 oz. The results will be confirmed in a production update later this month.In the most recent trading update, the company said construction of the underground de-watering pumping facilities at Asacha continues, albeit slightly behind the original planning timetable. Completion of the permanent facilities is expected to be achieved by May 2019.last_img read more

Zurich reports a 228 mean gender pay gap for 2018

first_imgInsurance provider Zurich has reported a 22.8% mean gender pay gap for fixed hourly pay as at 5 April 2018; this is a decrease from 27.3%, as reported in 2017.The organisation reported gender pay gap data across its two legal entities, Zurich Employment Services and Zurich UK General Services, in line with the government’s reporting regulations and in time for the private sector submission deadline of 4 April 2019.The regulations require organisations with 250 or more employees to publish the differences in mean and median hourly rates of pay for male and female full-time employees, the gap in mean and median bonus pay for men and women, the proportions of male and female employees awarded bonus pay, and the proportions of male and female full-time employees in the lower, lower middle, upper middle and upper quartile pay bands.Zurich’s 2018 median gender pay gap for fixed hourly pay is 22.6%; this is a reduction from the 27.4% it reported in 2017.The organisation’s mean gender pay gap for bonuses paid in the 12 months up to 5 April 2018, which does not take into account part-time employees, is 51.9%; this is higher than last year’s figure of 47.2% The median gender pay gap for bonus payments is 44.9%, compared to 34.2% in 2017. Over the current reporting period, 95% of both male and female employees received bonus payments.Approximately three in 10 (31%) employees in the highest pay quartile at Zurich are female, compared to 33.3% in the second quartile, 44.3% in the third quartile and 62.7% in the lowest pay quartile. In total, 46% of the organisation’s workforce is female.Tulsi Naidu, UK chief executive officer at Zurich, said: “I am pleased to announce our gender pay gap has reduced to 22.8%. While this is a great step forward, there is clearly more to do to reduce both the hourly pay gap as well as the bonus gap.”Zurich attributes its gender pay gap to the fact that it continues to have fewer women employed in senior and technical roles. Zurich posited that fewer women than men apply for its senior roles in part because flexibility needs to be made more clearly available across all levels of the business.The organisation’s stated that its gender pay gap for bonuses is influenced by its number of female part-time employees; the majority (93%) are women, but the calculation for the bonus gender pay gap does not consider pro-rated bonus payments. Furthermore, the number of one-off payments for talent attraction or retention was higher in 2018 than 2017, which also contributed to Zurich’s increased bonus gap.To address these issues, Zurich will continue to promote its flexible working programme, FlexWork, operate intern, apprentice and graduate career entry routes, with 50% of 2018’s intake being female, and provide a youth skills programme, to encourage school students to take up a career in insurance.Zurich has been running a gender-focused employee group, Women’s Innovation Network (WIN), for the past five years. This now has 800 members in the UK, a quarter of whom are men. WIN has three focus areas: networking, cultural change and career development.The organisation has also looked to its recruitment practices, challenging its partners to deliver diverse shortlists for all management vacancies, using screening software to ensure adverts appeal to a wide range of applicants, and ensuring that all interviews are conducted by at least two managers, ideally with a mix of gender and ethnicity.Furthermore, Zurich’s UK executive team is measured on diversity and inclusion as part of their performance management objectives and required to sponsor at least one employee network group and mentor at least three employees.Naidu added: “We are confident that we will continue reducing our gender pay gap year on year. Not only is this simply the right thing to do, it is critical to our business performance. It enables us to attract and retain the best talent and makes us more representative of our customers.“Everyone should be able to succeed at Zurich, regardless of their background, and we are committed to ensuring this is the case.”last_img read more

Best of Last Week – New type of planet found workload sharing

first_img © 2014 Phys.org (Phys.org) —It’s been a busy week for space scientists—a team of astronomers discovered the first Thorne-Zytkow object—it’s a weird type of hybrid between a red supergiant and a neutron star that looks like a regular red supergiant, except it has a different type of chemical signature, giving it away. Another team of astronomers found a new type of planet: The ‘mega-Earth’. It’s rocky and weighs 17 times as much as our own planet. And yet another team has found that surprisingly strong magnetic fields challenge black holes’ pull. Black holes surveyed had magnetic strength equal to their gravitational pull, the first such direct evidence of it. In related news, theories suggest there should be equal amounts of antimatter and matter in the universe, yet we’re not able to detect any unless we create it ourselves. Now a CERN experiment takes us one step closer to discovering where all the antimatter went. Surprisingly strong magnetic fields challenge black holes’ pull Also, graphene has been in the news an awful lot lately, due to its many interesting properties, yet because of its two-dimensional nature, it’s been limited in some respects. Now, however, scientists have found stronger 3-D material that behaves like graphene, making it easier to create the devices that were supposed to be based on graphene. In another groundbreaking effort, researchers have developed a new way to make laser-like beams using 250x less power—it’s fueled by electricity instead of light. Also groundbreaking was a report that a new therapy wiped out cervical cancer in two women. Two out of nine patients underwent complete remission. That’s very good news.In news on another front, scientists may have found a cure for laziness, as MIT lab designs workload-sharing robotic limbs. Why do heavy lifting all by yourself when you could strap a robot on your back and have it do all the work for you? It may be the wave of the future.And finally, for those people feeling squeamish about dying, comes word from researchers in Boston as Harvard confirms antique book is bound in human skin—they believe the skin came from a woman who went insane and died from a heart attack back in the 19th century. For those looking to avoid a similar fate, by not dying at all, one team of researchers has found the anti-diabetic drug metformin slows aging and lengthens lifespan—at least in roundworms. We’ll still have to wait to see if it might work for us humans, of course, but at least it gives us something to hold onto for now. This document is subject to copyright.

Brazils feud with US on spying raises tensions at UN

first_imgNo related posts. UNITED NATIONS — Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff used her role as the first speaker at the United Nations General Assembly to call alleged U.S. spying on her government and citizens an “affront” to Brazil’s sovereignty.“Never can the sovereignty of one country suffer under the sovereignty of another country,” Rousseff, 65, said Tuesday. “Never can the rights to security of the citizens of one country be guaranteed by violating the fundamental human rights of the citizens of another country.”Rousseff spoke immediately before U.S. President Barack Obama and one week after she called off a state visit to Washington — which would have been the first for a Brazilian head of state since 1995. The cancellation stemmed from espionage allegations based on documents from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.As the possibility of a greeting between Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani dominates news about the opening of the General Assembly session, tensions with Brazil over alleged NSA spying are among other challenges including Syria confronting Obama and the United States as world leaders gather in New York.“There’s this huge question of Syria and the murder of 120,000 people,” said David Schenker, the director of the program on Arab politics at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. “That’s been overshadowed by the Rohani love fest.”Revelations about NSA surveillance against both Brazil and Mexico, Latin America’s biggest economies, have chilled relations and may prompt a U.S. response, said Carl Meacham, director of the Americas program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington policy group.“These are obviously countries that are influential,” Meacham said in a telephone interview. “A lot of people think the president may actually address some of these concerns” by speaking with Rousseff, or by having Secretary of State John Kerry meet with his Brazilian counterpart.The U.S. also has yet to say whether it will grant a visa for travel to the U.N. gathering by Sudanese President Umar al-Bashir. The International Criminal Court is seeking Bashir’s arrest and trial on charges of war crimes in Darfur.Beyond negotiations with Russia on plans to destroy Syria’s chemical weapons and convene peace talks, progress on resolving the Syrian civil war, at this point, requires addressing discontent by Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf allies that back the opposition to Bashar al-Assad’s regime, Schenker said.“The Gulf is apoplectic with the U.S. policy on Syria,” he said. “I don’t know how much of it we’re going to see, but there will be side meetings.”Stumbling blocks with Russia persist over whether a U.N. resolution should include a provision allowing the use of force to ensure resolutions are followed, said a U.S. State Department official who asked to not be identified citing policy.Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Kerry are scheduled to meet today and U.S. officials said they will wait to see what gaps remain after their discussion. Later this week, Kerry is to meet again with Lavrov, U.N. special envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi, and representatives of other countries that support the Syrian opposition.The absence of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping in New York means there will be “fewer opportunities for leaders to put pressure on Russia and China over their behavior over Syria,” Richard Gowan, associate director of New York University’s Center on International Cooperation, said yesterday by e-mail.“Leaders will doubtless make many emotional promises to increase humanitarian assistance to suffering Syrians, but experience shows that these high-profile pledges often go unfulfilled,” Gowan added.More than 100,000 people have died since the turmoil in Syria broke out in March 2011, with millions displaced internally and spilling into neighboring Iraq, Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan, threatening their economic stability, according to UN data. UN organizations have appealed for more financial support, saying they have received only 40 percent of the $4.4 billion they need to help the Syrian people.With assistance from Bill Faries in Miami. © 2013, Bloomberg News Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Details of Salvadoran castaways Marshalls arrival emerge

first_imgMAJURO, Marshall Islands – Fresh details have emerged of castaway José Salvador Alvarenga’s first encounter with other people after months at sea – including how Marshall Islands residents communicated with him in broken Spanish learned from popular children’s television show “Dora the Explorer.”Until now, little has been known about the Salvadoran’s arrival on far-flung Ebon Atoll in the Marshall Islands, where he landed two weeks ago after setting sail from Mexico on a fishing trip in December 2012. Only a single telephone services the Pacific outpost.But Ebon Mayor Ione de Brum revealed to AFP that Alvarenga “managed to swim his boat ashore” on the night of Jan. 29 after a 12,500-kilometer (8,000-mile) journey.Exhausted, he fell asleep on a deserted beach to be awoken the next morning by roosters crowing.Unknown to the 37-year-old, he had washed up at the tip of Ebon, the southern-most atoll in the Marshalls.A U.S. study at the University of Hawaii of the prevailing wind and current conditions has supported his tale of survival, with a model tracing a remarkably narrow path across the Pacific to pass within 120 miles of Ebon.“He was at the tip of the island where it’s uninhabited, but from that vantage point he would easily see the single house on the neighboring island across the pass,” said de Brum.The two coconut-forested coral islands are just a stone’s throw away and “people can yell back and forth between these two,” she said.Alvarenga did just that after the sunrise let him see where he was.Holding a knifeAmy Libokmeto and Russell Laijedrik, the only two residents on the tiny island of Eneaitok, said they heard shouting and spotted Alvarenga on the neighboring atoll’s beach.They were likely the first humans he had seen for months. He left southern Mexico on what was supposed to be a one-day fishing expedition with a companion – who, after weeks adrift, died of starvation and was tossed overboard.Alvarenga was frantically yelling in an incomprehensible language and waving his arms in the air while holding a knife, Libokmeto told AFP.“We weren’t scared, just surprised,” she said.“As we approached him, I used broken English and motioned to the knife and told him, ‘put away, put away.’” A man reads a newspaper with the a picture of castaway José Salvador Alvarenga on the front page, in Santa Tecla, El Salvador on Feb. 12, 2014. Johan Ordóñez/AFPWith long hair, a bushy beard and dressed only in his shredded underwear, Alvarenga immediately dropped the weapon.“He gave in to his weakened state and collapsed onto the beach,” Libokmeto said.It was obvious to the couple that he must have washed ashore. The entire atoll has fewer than 700 residents, most of whom are related by blood or marriage to Libokmeto and Laijedrik.They said they took him to their home, where Libokmeto prepared a bucket of fresh water so he could have his first proper wash in over a year, then gave him clothes to wear.Spanish learned from ‘Dora’Unable to communicate verbally as he spoke Spanish and they did not, the couple gave Alvarenga some paper and a black marker while Libokmeto whipped up pancakes, which the hungry man devoured.Laijedrik took his notes and crossed the reef to the main Ebon island, where he sent a young boy to get the local mayor de Brum and then retrieved Alvarenga’s boat.De Brum quickly rounded up the island’s health assistant, her chief of police and Ola Fjeldstad, a visiting Norwegian student anthropologist and the only other foreigner on Ebon.They grabbed some coconuts and bananas and rushed to meet the stranger, giving him a brief health check while checking his 24-foot boat, whose motor had long since died.“In the boat was a live bird tethered by its leg, bird scraps, bones, feathers and a small turtle shell,” de Brum said.The mayor discovered that her son had a few words of Spanish “learned from the ‘Dora the Explorer’ cartoon show his children used to watch”, and with the pictures Alvarenga drew a basic understanding of where he came from emerged.Alvarenga said he survived on a diet of raw bird flesh, turtle blood, his own urine, rainwater and dreams of eating his favorite food – tortillas. The turtle shell was used as a cup to drink.The castaway was starving, but it wasn’t just food he was hungry for.“He was so hungry to give us information he kept talking fast but we couldn’t understand him,” said the mayor, adding that she initially refused to allow him to use the island’s phone.“He wanted to contact his family but I was concerned because we were unsure of who he was, his motives or if he had other friends (on ships nearby) that he would alert – I just did not know and did not want to risk it,” she said.Instead she contacted the police and ministry of foreign affairs in the Marshalls capital Majuro.The Salvadoran remained on Ebon for five days until a government patrol boat took him to Majuro, from where he eventually left for El Salvador and an emotional family reunion.He gifted his boat to Libokmeto and Laijedrik. It is now being used to carry cargo and passengers on Ebon.
