UN rights chief calls for halt to use of excessive force against

The North African country has been rocked by street protests by civilians reportedly angered by rising prices of essential commodities, lack of employment opportunities, alleged corruption and limitations on fundamental rights and freedoms.“Whatever the precise total, I am extremely concerned about the very high number of people killed in Tunisia in recent weeks,” said the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, in a statement issued in Geneva. “It is essential that basic international human rights norms and guidelines governing the use of firearms are urgently and strictly adhered to.”Government figures for those killed over the weekend of 8-9 January stand at 21, but human rights organizations have put the death toll much higher. While demonstrations intensified during the past weekend, deaths were also reported in preceding weeks. The protests, which began on 17 December, have continued across the country.Ms. Pillay noted reports which suggest that the majority of protests have been peaceful in nature and that security forces reacted with excessive force in breach of international standards.“It is imperative that the government launch a transparent, credible and independent investigation into the violence and killings,” she said. “If there is evidence that members of the security forces have used excessive force, or conducted extra-judicial killings, they must be arrested, tried and – if found guilty of offences – punished according to the law. It is essential that justice is done, and is seen to be done.” Ms. Pillay also expressed concern over reports of widespread arrests, including of human rights defenders and bloggers advocating fundamental human rights principles such as the freedom of expression, as well as reports of torture and ill-treatment of detainees.“While it is correct that people should be arrested if there is evidence they have committed crimes such as violence or arson, no one should be arrested or harassed for standing up for human rights,” she said. “Human rights defenders and bloggers, arrested solely for their peaceful activities, must be released immediately.”The human rights chief urged the Tunisian government to respond to the underlying causes of the unrest and to draw up policies to ameliorate economic hardship and lift severe limitations on civil liberties, including the freedoms of assembly, the expression of opinion and the right to associate. 12 January 2011The United Nations’ top human rights official today urged the Tunisian government to ensure that its security forces stop using excessive force against demonstrators, and to start credible investigations into deaths that have occurred during recent protests. read more

Lightning Strikes New Report Reveals 10 Most Struck US States

first_img Lightning doesn’t strike twice? In one state, they struck more than 2.4 million times in 2018.New research recently revealed the U.S. states that experienced the most lightning strikes in 2018. Florida had the most strikes per square mile and Texas had the highest overall number of strikes.Texas experienced 2,483,805 negative cloud-to-ground flashes in 2018. Florida experienced 1,385,710 negative cloud-to-ground flashes, but had the highest density of lightning strikes last year. The Sunshine State has the highest average of negative cloud-to-ground flashes per square mile, with 24.Environmental measurement specialist Vaisala announced the findings, part of its Annual Lightning Report, at the American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting this week held in Phoenix.The Annual Lightning Report, which used data from Vaisala’s National Lightning Detection Network, also showed that Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska made up the rest of the top five states with most lightning strikes in 2019.2018 Top 10 States with the Most Cloud-to-Ground FlashesTexas: 2,483,805Florida: 1,385,710Oklahoma: 958,925Kansas: 928,760Nebraska: 889,019Louisiana: 854,871Arkansas: 768,168Missouri: 711,222New Mexico: 699,719Georgia: 693,776This year’s data show there were nearly two million fewer lightning strikes in the U.S. in 2018 compared to the 10-year average, Vaisala said in a statement.“The likely reason for the reduction is simply that there were fewer big storms,” said Ryan Said, Lightning Research Scientist at Vaisala. “Specifically, there were fewer days with very strong air mass contrasts across the Central Plains and Upper Midwest during the spring and summer of 2018, which contributes to the severe weather season.”Image Credit: Vaisala/Annual Lightning ReportMore on Geek.com:This Cube Lets You Experience the Earth’s Most Extreme ConditionsDust Storm Turns South African Town Blood-RedGlobal Warming Boosts Risk of Lightning-Ignited Fires Stay on target Mini Satellite View of Hurricane Dorian Shows Intense Storm ActivityWild Horses of NC to Ride Out Hurricane With ‘Butts to the Wind’ last_img read more

Recovered pups find comfort in Sitka

first_imgMeet Brandi, Peaches, Bamboo, Hunter, Chuckles, and Boomer.There’s also Taffy, James, Bearhood, Chip and Spot. The fluffy cargo safely arrived at the Sitka Rocky Gutierrez Airport on Thursday and were promptly whisked away to the animal shelter.Eleven homeless pups landed in Sitka on Thursday (11-5-13). The dogs, recovered from Ketchikan, will be ready to adopt shortly. (Brielle Schaeffer/KCAW photo)The dogs are a long way from home. They are a part of a larger group rescued from a residence in Ketchikan last month, after their owner passed away leaving 40-plus animals. After being recovered by Alaska State Troopers, the dogs were taken to the crowded shelter there until Sitka Animal Control Officer and shelter director Ken Buxton went to get them. And he wanted to get them collared and taken care of as soon as he got on the ground.Buxton mobilized Sitkans to raise money to relieve the Ketchikan shelter. As of Thursday, he gathered some $1,400 to help pay for a chartered Harris Air plane, but it didn’t quite cover the cost. Buxton says he hopes to raise some more funds now that he has the pups here.“Pictures of cute dogs always help,” he said.And they are adorable.“The ugliest one is the cutest dog I’ve ever seen,” Buxton said.He says the pooches are most likely terrier mixes. Some may have a touch of dachshund.“They’re mutts,” he said. “So are we.”Buxton says it’s hard to know their ages, but some may be around 1 year old.“Can’t cut them open and count the rings,” he said, “but whatever life they have left is certainly meaningful.The dogs are related but a few have shaggier hair. A couple short-haired, black ones have matching white tufts of diamond-shaped fur on their chests.Some of them have skin, eye, ear and teeth problems but Buxton is treating them with medication.“The people in Ketchikan started their recovery and we’ll finish these particular dogs recovery over here.”Buxton says the dogs are surprisingly well-behaved considering the circumstances. They get along well and don’t fight over food. The dogs will be open for adoption on Tuesday and ready to take home after getting spayed and neutered.“We don’t have a dog problem the way the other all the southeast communities do,” Buxton said. “And I’ve theorized on it and I’m a firm believer is that part of the reason is the vets around here performing that spay or neuter regardless of somebody’s financial standing.”(Brielle Schaeffer/KCAW photo)Trish and David Durham were part of a team of volunteers who picked up the dogs from the airport. The whole story is a comfort to animal lovers,” David Durham says.“It’s nice to know that in a situation such as this communities can get together to provide homes for perfectly adoptable pets whose pet owner just happened to have a health issue,” he said.Even better than that is the animals will be going to grateful homes in Sitka,” Trish Durham said.“There will be lots of happy families pretty soon,” she said.At this time, Buxton says he is not looking for foster homes for the dogs. He just needs to figure out a walking schedule.The Sitka Animal Shelter already has a waitlist of people who want dogs. If you’re interested in adopting, call the shelter at 747-3567 to set up an appointment.last_img read more

Behind the scenes How BJP got upper hand in Parliament

first_imgNew Delhi, Aug 10 (IANS) The BJP government proposed the resolution to revoke Article 370 in the Rajya Sabha on Monday, but it was over three months ago that the party started preparations to ensure smooth passage of the legislations in the Upper House. The responsibility for ensuring this was given to several senior leaders considered close to party chief Amit Shah, said sources. Also Read – Congress MLA Shivakumar moves High Court seeking protection from arrest Advertise With Us A senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader related to the development told IANS: “There were many ambitious Bills that the BJP wanted to pass in its first term (Modi 1.0 government). But due to a lack of majority in the Upper House it could not be passsed.” The party leader said referring to the Triple Talaq Bill, which got stuck in Rajya Sabha as the NDA did not have a majority in the House. Also Read – Enforcement Directorate summons Karnataka Congress leader D.K. Shivakumar Advertise With Us Thus, keeping in mind the numbers in the Upper House, a strategy was made to convince the top leadership of the opposition parties like Biju Janata Dal (BJD), Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) and the AIADMK to vote on the side of the government. Among the top leaders who were part of this project were Dharmendra Pradhan, who hails from Odisha, Piyush Goyal, who was made the in-charge for Tamil Nadu, Bhupendra Yadav and Om Mathur. Advertise With Us He said the task of reaching out to key opposition leaders started sometime in late April. They spoke to a number of regional party leaders and tried to convince them how the decision on revoking Article 370 was important in national interest and for the benefit of the people of Kashmir. The party leader said that the discussions with the opposition parties went on for over a month before a consensus was built. The numbers went into NDA’s favour as four of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) Rajya Sabha MPs on June 20 resigned from their party and joined the BJP. Meanwhile, some opposition members dumped their parties in the middle of the crucial session and announced they were joining the BJP, which has returned to power with a thumping majority in the Lok Sabha. On August 5, the day the resolution to revoke Article 370 came for adoption and also the bill for reorganising Jammu and Kashmir, Rajya Sabha Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu announced resignation of three opposition members — Surendra Singh Nagar and Sanjay Seth of the Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bhubaneswar Kalita of the Congress. Days earlier, Neeraj Shekhar of the Samajwadi Party (SP) and Sanjay Sinh of the Congress had quit from the Rajya Sabha and joined the BJP. According to BJP leaders, the BJP which has 78 members along with three Shiv Sena and three Akali Dal (SAD) members, had a field day as many non-NDA parties such as the BSP, the AIADMK, the AAP, the YSRCP and the BJD supported the government on revoking Article 370 and bifurcation of the state. The AIADMK has 11 members in the Upper House while the BSP has four and the AAP, BJD and YSRCP have three, seven and two members each in the Rajya Sabha. In the end, it was a cakewalk for the ruling party benches when it came to the passage of crucial legislations.last_img read more

Buy This Comic Paper Girls 11

first_imgStay on target Buy This Comic: DEATH ORB #1Buy This Comic: MAN-EATERS #1 Today is Wednesday, better known as New Comic Book Day, the best day of the week. A lot of great comics came out today, but this column is meant to focus on the best of the best, the must have books that should be in everyone’s stack for the week. This week, that comic is Paper Girls #11 from Image Comics, by writer Brian K. Vaughan, artist Cliff Chiang, and colorist Matthew Wilson. Not only is it new comic book day, but it is also #ImageDay, a day meant to celebrate Image Comics’ 25th anniversary!Paper Girls #11(W) Brian K. Vaughan (A) Cliff Chiang (C) Matthew WilsonA BOLD NEW STORYLINE STARTS HERE! The Eisner and Harvey Award-winning “Best New Series” from BRIAN K. VAUGHAN and CLIFF CHIANG returns, as Erin, Mac, and Tiff any finally reunite with their long-lost friend KJ…only to encounter some horrifying new threats in an unexpected era.via Image ComicsI have to admit; Paper Girls was not one of my favorite series when it first started out. I am a huge fan of Vaughan, Chiang, and Wilson, so I was beyond excited when it was announced two years ago. However, when the first issue came out in October of 2015, I didn’t love it. Vaughan normally grabs me with the first issue, like he did with Saga, or Y The Last Man, or Runaways. The first issue of Paper Girls just seemed to give me a few characters that I knew barely anything about, and a lot of abstract ideas, but nothing that left me thinking about it days later like most of his books. This isn’t to say that I didn’t enjoy it, or want more, it just wasn’t an instant sell for me.Artist Cliff Chiang and colorist Matthew Wilson’s work on the first issue is what left a lasting impression, some of their strongest work, having recently come off of DC Comics’ New 52 iteration of Wonder Woman with writer Brian Azzarello. Chiang’s great sense of characters in relation to the space they inhabit is one of my favorite things. He knows how to make a lot of characters in a small room feel tight, tense, and claustrophobic, or when everyone is outside in the open space, making them feel small and at risk. Wilson’s colorist work is something that I follow all over every publisher, especially with his frequent collaborators like Chiang, Jamie McKelvie, and Kris Anka. He works to compliment the artist, with simple but bold flat colors on Paper Girls.via Image ComicsThankfully, here we are, eleven issues later, and Paper Girls has become one of my favorite books month to month. While it feels as if very few questions have been answered since that first issue, Vaughan’s character work is what keeps me coming back. A lot of comparisons have been made to Stranger Things, in that both feature pre-teens in the 1980’s, as they venture out into the weird and unknown, but the strongest comparison for me is how well it captures the group dynamic of the kids. Paper Girls‘ Erin, Mac, KJ, and Tiffany have a dynamic that works so well. Initially, all coming across as archetypes, they slowly have all come out of their shell over the course of the first two arcs. Issue #11 finds them in a new setting, after the cliffhanger in volume two, and it is the first time all four of them have been together in awhile.Image Comics, notably Vaughan’s Saga with artist Fiona Staples, tend to take a hiatus in between the release of volumes, which is where this issue picks up, as the beginning of volume three. While the hiatus can be jarring in the sense that months will go by in which you don’t read your favorite series, they are always worth the wait. If creators need to take a break every so often to ensure that they’re telling the best story possible, I have no complaints. Paper Girls #11 is available today in stores or online at Comixology.2/1/2017 Releases – In addition to Paper Girls #11, here is a list of other new titles that came out this week that you should also be reading if you are not already.Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern #1 from BOOM!
