GuineaBissau parties agree to delay elections for voter reregistration UN says

The United Nations offices in Guinea-Bissau are focusing on efforts to lower tensions between political parties and creating a good political climate for a peaceful, fair and transparent poll, which has been delayed by a month, Secretary-General Kofi Annan says in a report to the Security Council.With 20 political parties having challenged the 2004 voter register, the Guinea-Bissau National Election Commission and the parties will revise the list, delaying the presidential elections until a yet to be determined time in June, a date which will mark the end of the political transition in the post-conflict country, it says.Since the Council has revised the mandate of the UN Peacebuilding Support Office in Guinea-Bissau (UNOGBIS), Mr. Annan recommends that the office develop “stable civil-military relations through a profound reform of the armed forces as an institution subordinate to democratic civilian authority.”The dignified reintegration of demobilized former combatants deserves particular attention, along with reform of the justice system and the revitalization of the economy to sustain any progress from security reform, it says.The country has improved noticeably since his last report in December, Mr. Annan says, but is still confronted with tremendous challenges. “The State is still floundering and unable to effectively address the basic needs of the populace,” while the old sources of conflict persist. read more


Retired officers association banned from Navy training centre after failing to bar

first_imgAllan Waters is arrested in Mumbai in 2004 A Royal Navy training centre has banned an association of retired officers’ from using its base after they failed to expel two convicted predatory paedophiles from their club.For decades, hundreds of members of the President Retired Officers Association attended formal lunches, dinners, lectures and drinks receptions at HMS President on the River Thames in London.But, senior officers in charge of the “stone frigate” – a naval base on land – launched an investigation after finding that two high-profile sex offenders had been among those attending functions at the reservist training centre, also used by young Sea Cadets.Allan Waters and Duncan Grant were allowed to renew their membership of the retired officers association despite both being jailed in India for six years in 2006 for preying on vulnerable boys at an orphanage in Mumbai.After completing their jail terms and arriving back in the UK five years ago, Waters, a former lieutenant commander, was made honorary secretary of the association, while Duncan Grant, previously a reservist officer, renewed his membership. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. The pair triggered a scandal into how paedophiles posing as charity workers were targeting children from the poorest communities in Third World Countries.They were convicted of using an orphanage Grant had set up to force children into performing sexual acts before passing them on to a network of sex tourists. In 2008, an Indian high court overturned their convictions for “unnatural sex acts” and conspiring to “obtain minors for immoral purposes”. Three years later, the country’s Supreme Court upheld the original convictions and the men were sent back to jail.When Waters, now 68, and Grant, 73, completed their sentences and returned to Britain they were made to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register.Waters’ conviction led to fears he may have targeted children while serving as a senior officer training youngsters in the Sea Cadets. In 2017, a former Sea Cadet​ alleged to a BBC Panorama programme that Waters abused him when he was 14, and attending a Cheshunt Sea Cadets centre in Hertfordshire in 1979Last year, Commander John Herriman, the officer running HMS President, discovered the two men had been spotted attending the independent association’s functions at the Royal Navy’s centre that serves London reservists and cadets.He then banned both Waters and Grant and the entire association from using the centre over concerns the club lacked a “rigorous” membership criteria, and consequently posed a threat to the centre’s ability to “maintain a safe training environment”.A source close to HMS President’s senior officers praised Mr Herriman, who retired last year, for his decisive actions, explaining that he was determined to ensure an “old boys’ club” could not tarnish the reputation of a Navy training centre.“The main concerns was that individuals who could have been or were on the Sex Offenders Register could be allowed to join such an esteemed association,” the source said. “It wasn’t considered good governance from the perspective of the President Retired Officers Association that these men could saunter back in as if nothing had happened.“HMS President is essentially a training establishment with young people studying there. There may have been occasions where these two men would have access to the unit for lunches or events.“The challenge running a military training establishment is to make sure you are creating a totally safe environment and there are no opportunities for risks to occur. The best way to do that was to bar the association that was thought not to have robust membership procedures in place.”It is understood Grant played on his family’s respected military past to allow him to join the association. Grant is the grandson of Major General Sir Philip Grant, who rallied the defence against the German offensive of March 1918 in the First World War.Waters was appointed superintendent of the Sea Cadet training centre in Portsmouth in 1996. He later became a member of the Sea Cadet Council, the highest body of the corps.A Royal Navy Spokesperson said: “The Royal Navy has no official link with the President Retired Officers Association, but can confirm we take a very robust stance where there is any risk to our personnel, in particular vulnerable groups such as minors.”Although no one from the association was prepared to speak on the record, a source said that Waters and Grant were allowed to renew their membership because they had served their sentence and were only attending functions where no young cadets or reservists would be present.He added that many of the members of the association felt the blanket ban on holding functions at HMS President unfairly penalised retired officers who played no part in allowing the two paedophiles to renew their membership and may have been unaware of their criminal past.

Flickr manages to restore deleted Pro account gives user 25 years free

first_imgOn Tuesday we heard some surprising news: Flickr did not have the ability to restore the images on a paid-for Flickr Pro account it had accidentally deleted. User Mirco Wilhelm had in the region of 4,000 photos stored on the account, but when he went to login he found them all gone.Flickr’s initial response to this was to apologize and offer him four years of free Pro account access, but that didn’t restore the images. A day later, and it looks like the tech guys at Flickr have been working hard, and Wilhelm has got his images back.AdChoices广告A statement from Flickr explains:Yahoo! is pleased to share that the Flickr team has fully restored a member’s account that was mistakenly deleted yesterday. We regret the human error that led to the mistake and have worked hard to rectify the situation, including reloading the entire photo portfolio and providing the member with 25 years of free Flickr Pro membership. Flickr takes the trust of our members very seriously and we appreciate the patience shown by this member and our community. Flickr will also soon roll out functionality that will allow us to restore deleted accounts more easily in the future. Wilhelm is obviously happy, but is still awaiting access:My account has been restored through some magical recovery process, Flickr “doesn’t have”… Everything looks from from the outside, but I still can’t login. One of the messages from the staff told me they will send me instructions, once everything has been restored to prevent data mixups, so I guess I will have that by some time tomorrow [today]. And here’s the e-mail Flickr sent him regarding the successful restore:Hi Mirco,Just a quick update. Your account has been restored including photos, comments, groups, etc. External links pointing to these photos were restored yesterday. There are a couple last things we need to do in your account. When that’s all done we will send you an email with info on how to log back in.As noted before, we’ve added 25 years of Pro to your account and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Although a bit of a rollercoaster ride for Wilhelm, the 25 years free membership and restored photos may have made it all worth it.Read more at Binder Tumblr, via The New York ObserverMatthew’s OpinionAlthough this episode has ended on a good note, I have one big take away from it: Flickr has been online and operating since February 2004, that’s over 6 years, and in all that time they never thought to implement a backup and recovery process for user accounts.I find that astonishing, and a great oversight on the part of Yahoo! Did they not think that one day something like this may happen?As the response from Yahoo! notes, a restore feature is being rolled out to stop this ever happening again. But really this should have been there from day one.last_img read more

Stober seeks reelection to Vancouver City Council

first_imgTy Stober is seeking a second term on the Vancouver City Council, he announced Tuesday.“The issues facing Vancouver are nuanced and complex,” Stober said in a media release. “And in my decision-making, I try hard to hear and represent the voices in our community that feel left out and left behind.”His announcement was expected — Stober had filed with the Public Disclosure Commission for the 2019 election in April 2016, and his campaign has since raised about $9,400.Before sitting on the city council, Stober cut his teeth running for the 49th District state Senate seat vacated by Democrat Craig Pridemore in 2012. An LGBTQ equal-rights advocate, Stober dropped out of that race to concentrate on the battle to defend the state’s marriage equality law, he told The Columbian at the time.He also worked at the nonprofit Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, where he encouraged electronics retailers to stock and promote their most energy-efficient products.In 2015, he narrowly won a city council bid for the Position 5 seat over Linda Glover (who went on to win her own council election in 2017). Over the past four years, he’s served on city committees including the Council for the Homeless, C-Tran and Safe Communities Task Force.If elected to a second term, Stober pledged to focus on affordable housing and transportation.“My time on (the) council has been rewarding,” Stober said in the media release.”We have launched many projects and initiatives to strengthen our community, and I want to see them come to fruition. I am eager to continue building economic and social opportunity that connects our youth, our aging population and our families to a growing, vibrant city.”last_img read more

Rocket fire kills 30 in Ukraine as rebels launch offensive

first_imgKIEV, Ukraine — Indiscriminate rocket fire slammed into a market, schools, homes and shops Saturday in Ukraine’s southeastern city of Mariupol, killing at least 30 people, authorities said. The Ukrainian president called the blitz a terrorist attack and NATO and the U.S. demanded that Russia stop supporting the rebels. Ukrainian officials rushed to defend the strategically important port on the Sea of Azov, beefing up military positions with more equipment and sending in more forces. The separatists’ top leader declared that an offensive against Mariupol had begun — then later toned down his threats as the scale of the civilian casualties became clear.President Petro Poroshenko held an emergency meeting of his military officials and cut short a trip to Saudi Arabia to coordinate the government’s response. “The time has come to name their sponsors. The help given to militants, weapons deliveries, equipment and the training of manpower — is this not aiding terrorism?” Poroshenko said in a recorded statement.last_img read more

Governor puts funding for Dillingham DA office back in his budget

first_img(KDLG photo)Governor Bill Walker announced his intentions Tuesday to keep the Dillingham District Attorney’s office open. Walker’s amended operating budget restores the $340,000 of funding the Department of Law had originally proposed cutting in the December version of the budget.The Dillingham DA’s office was slimmed down last summer to just one attorney and one paralegal, and it was understood that the next round of cuts could see the office all the way closed. Still it came as a bit of a surprise in early December when the Department of Law offered up closing the office to save an estimated $340,000.Among those caught off guard were Sen. Lyman Hoffman and Rep. Bryce Edgmon, who felt they had left Juneau at the end of the last Legislative session with the Governor’s personal assurance that the office would stay open.“Well you know obviously I’m very pleased,” Edgmon said of the amendment Wednesday morning. “I think it’s the outcome of a lot of hard work, both down here in Juneau and from a lot of concerned citizens in, not just the Dillingham area, but also the Bristol Bay area as a whole.”Not many of the governor’s amendments added to his proposed budget. Rather, Walker touted an additional $135 million in reductions for the FY 17 budget these changes would bring.“It’s very difficult to get things back in the budget. To me this is step one,”said Edgmon. “Step two is to keep it in the budget, and I think myself and Senator Hoffman clearly have our work cut out for us to make that happen.”The House has put everything aside but work related to the budget, grappling with how Alaska will pay its way this year and in the future in an era of low oil prices and low oil production. The session is now a third of the way through.“We’re getting a lot closer,” Edgmon said of passing a budget. “We’re about two to three weeks out. And of course this is not an ordinary year, we have other considerations, looking at the long term. So things will get a little bit more involved as we get more towards the end of February.”The Dillingham DA’s office is still open, though the attorney who had been assigned to it resigned in January. The new attorney assigned to Dillingham court cases lives and works out of Anchorage. If funding for the Dillingham office survives the Legislature’s efforts to cut the state’s budget, who gets staffed where remains to be seen.last_img read more


Legislators mixed in response to income tax bill

first_imgRep. Tammie Wilson, R-North Pole, addresses the Alaska House of Representatives, April 8, 2015. She is calling for an investigation into the Office of Children’s Services. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)Under a proposed statewide income tax bill in the Capitol, Alaskans would have a choice when they apply for their annual permanent fund dividend: whether or not to set aside money to pay for their next year’s state income tax liability.Listen nowEmployers could deduct state income tax payments from workers’ paychecks. But if workers prefer to pay with PFDs, they could ask their employers to deduct less money each pay period.Alaskans who pay income taxes to other states would receive a credit to reduce their Alaska taxes.Some minority-caucus Republicans expressed displeasure with the bill’s details in a Senate Finance Committee meeting today (Monday).North Pole Representative Tammie Wilson told a Department of Revenue official it will be difficult for spouses who file their federal tax return jointly, but who pay state income taxes in different states.“First of all, all of what you just said is a nightmare,” Wilson said. “I’ve done that with states before. And when you’re trying to figure out who to credit whom… luckily they have H&R Block online.”There could be two main new taxes passed this year. The income tax would be 15 percent of federal liability. A couple with two children and 150,000 dollars in gross income would pay about 20,000 dollars in federal income tax after deductions, and 3,000 dollars in state taxes. And a separate 10 percent tax would be applied on all capital gains, such as the sale of stocks and bonds.Anchorage Democrat Representative Les Gara said residents should be clear that the income tax rate under the bill isn’t applied on their overall income.“15 percent of a 25 percent federal tax is a 3.75 percent tax,” Gara said. “I just don’t want anyone walking around saying this bill is imposing a 15 percent tax when it’s not.”Anchorage Republican Representative Lance Pruitt expressed concern about the complexity of the bill. The legislation would also draw money from the Permanent Fund to pay for part of the state government budget.“This is complex,” Pruitt said. “If I’m asking questions, you can understand what the public’s going to ask on this.”Bill supporters say it would bring stability to the state’s budget and economy. The House Finance Committee will hold more hearings on the bill this week.last_img read more

Castro Eyeing 2020 Presidential Run But Isnt Ready To Committ — Just

first_imgGAGE SKIDMORE HTTP://BIT.LY/2H9U6FJ / WIKIMEDIA COMMONSJulian Castro, former secretary for the U.S. Housing and Urban Development for the Obama administration.Julian Castro, former San Antonio mayor and secretary of Housing and Urban Development for the Obama Administration, says he is interested in a 2020 presidential run. But Castro, who is speaking this week in the early presidential primary state of New Hampshire, said he won’t announce his official decision later this year. Castro said he plans on spending a lot of time on the campaign trail throughout 2018, and by that he means campaign trails for other Democrats — not his own, at least for now.Castro said he is interested in a presidential run in 2020, but he’s not ready to make that announcement just yet.“I’m going to spend the bulk of the time between now and November helping candidates who are on the ballot this year get elected. At the same time, after the November election is done, I’m going to make a decision about my own future and whether I’m going to run for president in 2020,” Castro said.Castro will give the keynote address at New Hampshire’s Young Democrats Granite Slate Awards on Thursday.David Crockett, political science professor with Trinity University, said New Hampshire is an early primary state that potential presidential candidates use to determine their level of support beyond their home states.“We know who he is in Texas, but that’s not good enough to win a nomination. He needs to become more of a household name nationwide in the Democratic Party electorate. So the way you do that is to campaign for other officeholders, and you’re making speeches in other areas, and people start talking about you; your name gets out there,” Crocket said.Castro said his decision on whether or not to run for president will be based on a combination of factors over the next year. And one of those factors, Crockett said, will likely be whether Democrats are able to win back a majority of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives this fall.“If they are able to take back the House, which is certainly possible, I think what that does is send a message to a Democratic candidate that the midterms election prophesizes a good year for Democrats in the 2020 election,” Crocket said.Crockett said if that happens, you’ll likely see a crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates, similar to what Republican voters experienced during the 2016 presidential primaries.Ryan Poppe can be reached at or on Twitter @RyanPoppe1 Sharelast_img read more


Lawyer No Apparent Justification for Antwon Rose Fatal Shooting

first_imgThe Associated PressEAST PITTSBURGH, Pa. (AP) — A 17-year-old Black boy fatally shot by a police officer in Pennsylvania seconds after he fled a traffic stop did not pose a threat to anyone, a lawyer for the family of the teen said.Civil rights attorney S. Lee Merritt said late Wednesday that he doesn’t see any apparent justification for the use of deadly force by an East Pittsburgh police officer that left Antwon Rose Jr. dead. Allegheny County police are conducting an independent investigation of the shooting in East Pittsburgh, a borough about 10 miles (16 kilometers) east of Pittsburgh.Leonard Hammonds II, of Penn Hills, right, points out that a Turtle Creek Police officer has his hand on his weapon during a rally in East Pittsburgh, Pa., on Wednesday, June 20, 2018, at a protest regarding the shooting death of Antwon Rose by an East Pittsburgh Police officer during a traffic stop the night before. (Steve Mellon/Pittsburgh Post-Gazette via AP)Part of the encounter was captured on video and posted to Facebook by a bystander. Officer Michael Rosfeld confirmed to a WTAE-TV reporter who went to his house Thursday that he was the officer who fired the shots but said he had not watched the news and was unaware the video even existed. Rosfeld said he could not talk about the shooting because of the open investigation.Investigators and city officials have declined to name the officer. They said he was placed on administrative leave during the investigation.The shooting has sparked some social media outrage and calls for punishment of the officer, including from rapper Nas and a handful of other celebrities. A Wednesday night protest at the East Pittsburgh police headquarters lasted for several hours and drew more than 100 people, some of whom laid down in front of a police cruiser.A second protest Thursday afternoon at the Allegheny County courthouse attracted nearly 1,000 people, including speakers decrying police use of force and gun violence. Protesters later took to the streets, shutting down a major interstate. Some sat down on Interstate 376, blocking traffic in both directions, while others chanted, “What do we want? Justice. When do we want it? Now.”Investigators said the officer stopped the car Antwon and two other people were riding in Tuesday because it matched the description of a car reported to be involved in a shooting about 15 minutes earlier in a nearby town. As the officer took the driver into custody, the short video shows Antwon and the other passenger running from the car.The officer quickly fired three shots, all of which struck Antwon, who later died at a hospital from his injuries. The medical examiner has not said where the teen was struck.“We must emphasize that rumors of (Antwon) being involved in a separate shooting are unsubstantiated,” Merritt wrote in his statement, saying the use of deadly force seems unjustified. “We know that he was not armed at the time he was shot down, that he posed no immediate threat to anyone.”Antwon’s friends, family and teachers said he was a promising student, who volunteered at a charity, was generous and had a “million-dollar smile.”Allegheny County Police Commissioner Coleman McDonough said Wednesday that he is confident the car Antwon was in was involved in the earlier shooting, partly because a window had been shot. He said officers found two guns in the car, and that the driver was released after questioning without being charged.McDonough confirmed that Antwon was not armed and that no shots were fired at the officers.Pennsylvania law allows officers to use deadly force against a fleeing suspect in only a handful of circumstances. It’s permitted if the suspect poses a threat of immediate danger, has used or threatened lethal violence previously or possesses a lethal weapon.East Pittsburgh Mayor Louis Payne said the officer had worked for the department for two weeks and was officially sworn in a few hours before the shooting. Rosfeld confirmed to WTAE-TV that he has worked with the department almost three weeks and worked previously in the Oakmont, Harmar and University of Pittsburgh police departments.Leaders of the Pittsburgh-based Black Political Empowerment Project asked Thursday for the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office to investigate this and other police-involved shootings, citing only two instances where the Allegheny County district attorney has filed homicide charges against police officers in fatal shootings in the last 20 years.A joint statement from East Pittsburgh officials and police issued Thursday expressed condolences and sadness over Antwon’s death and asked the community to respect the investigative process. Rossfled said he has a lot of support from the local law enforcement community and from family.Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey also issued a statement Thursday saying the teen’s family has a right to answers.“I am disturbed by what I saw on the video, and I have numerous questions about exactly what happened and why,” he said.last_img read more

Woman forgets baby at airport flight forced to turn back around

The pilot radioed in to air traffic control, requesting to return to the airport.Understandably, the air traffic controller had to ask the pilot to repeat the request, not believing it the first time.“We told you, a passenger left her baby in the terminal and refuses to continue the flight,” the pilot is overheard in a video clip that has since gone viral, reports Gulf News. “May God be with us. Can we come back or what?” the pilot asks.More news:  Universal enhances popular Harry Potter vacation package with new perksThe air traffic controller can then be heard asking a colleague about what the protocol would be in such a situation. After more back-and-forth, he finally gives the go ahead: “Ok, head back to the gate. This is totally a new one for us!”According to radar tracking sites, the flight was delayed by approximately 45 minutes following the mid-air turnaround. No word as to whether the woman was eventually reunited with her baby. Let’s hope the two had a happy reunion, just like Kevin and his mom.
