UNbacked global conference on trade in endangered species begins

13 March 2010A United Nations-backed conference aimed at regulating international trade in endangered species such as elephants, polar bears, sharks and bluefin tuna kicked off today in Qatar with a warning that stronger action must be taken to protect wildlife at risk. Some 1,500 delegates from more than 170 governments, businesses, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and indigenous groups are attending the triennial summit of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in the Qatari capital, Doha.At least 42 proposals are on the agenda for discussion at the two-week gathering, with many reflecting international concern about the accelerated destruction of marine and forest ecosystems through overfishing and excessive logging, according to a press release issued by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), which administers the secretariat of CITES.Other proposals include calls for urgent measures to tackle the illegal trade in tiger products, rhinoceroses and other species considered on the brink of extinction. Member States will decide on measures to conserve species by either consensus or a two-thirds majority vote.Willem Wijnstekers, the Secretary-General of CITES, said increased political will is needed from member States to the Convention – which entered into force in 1975 – to deal with present-day challenges and problems.“We do not want to risk letting down the developing world in its struggle to ensure that trade in wild fauna and flora is conducted legally and sustainably,” he said.The General Assembly declared 2010 as the International Year of Biodiversity and Achim Steiner, the Executive Director of UNEP, said this year is a critical one for governments to take action to protect species.“By ensuring that the international trade in wildlife is properly regulated, CITES can assist in conserving the planet’s wild fauna and flora from over-exploitation and this contribute to the improved management of these key natural assets for sustainable development,” he said.As the conference opened today, it was announced that John Scanlon, an adviser at UNEP, will be the next Secretary-General of CITES and will take up his post in May. read more

Nova Scotians developing thirst for locally crafted wine spirits and beer

HALIFAX — Nova Scotians are growing thirstier for locally crafted beer and spirits — with vodka, rum and ciders named in honour of their maritime roots leading the charge.New year-end figures released by the Nova Scotia Liquor Corp. (NSLC) Tuesday, show the local industry is growing faster than expected thanks to new businesses and a growing range of products.It’s all helping to pad the liquor corporation’s bottom line, accounting for just over a third of overall sales at $209.9 million — a trend that has been growing over the past few years according to NSLC spokeswoman Bev Ware.The province now has 49 micro-breweries and 15 distilleries.“Nova Scotians want local,” said Ware. “They recognize quality products, they are wanting quality products and they are getting that in these locally made products.”Sales of Nova Scotia spirits grew by 130.8 per cent to a value of $3.5 million from April 2016 through March of this year, with Blue Lobster Vodka topping the list.Ready-to-drink products from the province — largely ciders — rose in sales by 83.7 per cent to $2.9 million, fuelled by the growth of drinks like No Boats on Sunday.Craft beer sales grew by 34.2 per cent to $10.2 million, while Nova Scotia wines grew by 3.9 per cent to a value of $9.9 million. Nova Scotia commercial beer sales remained stable at $160.9 million.Ware said the NSLC’s sales growth is down to a combination of factors, including market demand and the availability of product.“There is the demand there and there’s a growing market to meet that demand, so we do focus on cultivating the growth of these local products because that’s what our customers want,” she said.The corporation said that while it listed products from only three local breweries four years ago, it now lists products from 18 local breweries. One of every four beer listings on NSLC shelves is a local craft beer.Ware said the trend is unlikely to change any time soon.Overall, the corporation reported a net income of $239.2 million on $611.8 million in total sales. Sales were up just over $4 million from 2016.Ware said despite the increase, the total volume of alcohol sold was down one per cent.“That’s due in large part to the fact that customers are switching to wines and premium products that are sold in lower volumes than beer,” she said. read more

Ban calls on Egypt to mark anniversary of revolution with push for

In a statement issued by his spokesperson, he reiterated the commitment of the United Nations to support the country in building the future for all Egyptians, with dignity, freedom, responsible governance and development that inspired the uprising of 2011, which toppled President Hosni Mubarak nearly three years ago after mass protests. “The Secretary-General believes that one of the central challenges moving forward is pluralism: the guarantee that all voices are heard, represented and have a stake in the system, regardless of political or religious affiliation,” the statement said, underlining the “crucial need to guarantee the political space on which a stable and inclusive democracy can be built.”Last July, renewed protests, in which dozens of people were killed and wounded, led to the military deposing President Mohamed Morsy and the setting up of an interim government. A new constitution was adopted in a referendum earlier this month.“The Secretary-General encourages Egyptians to rediscover common ground,” the statement said. “In his view, credible parliamentary and presidential elections in a free and open atmosphere are crucial steps ahead in the transition.”A national independent committee set up for fact finding and gathering evidence about the events of last July “can be an opportunity to combat impunity and to ensure effective investigation and prosecution of those responsible for serious violations of international law,” it added.“Protection of human rights – and the rights and participation of women, in particular – is an essential foundation for the future. Political parties must commit themselves to non-violence,” the statement concluded, stressing that a peaceful and democratic Egypt is what the people of Egypt deserve and is critical for the entire North Africa, Middle East region and beyond. read more

Pixel Press lets you create a mobile game on a sheet of

first_imgCreating a game regardless of the platform you are targeting is still a relatively difficult task. One of the easiest ways in is to use software like Scratch, Construct, or GameMaker Studio, but even then there’s some logic or programming required, you need to source or create your artwork and audio, and then build and test the game. For anyone new to game development or who just wants to experiment, it can be quite a daunting task.Robin Rath aims to take the pain out of creating games with his new Kickstarter called Pixel Press. What Pixel Press does is allow you to create a game using nothing more than a pencil and sheet of paper. You draw the game, and the Pixel Press app does the rest and turns it into a full game playable on iOS and Android devices.Pixel Press consists of a pre-drawn grid you print out and draw on. Following a set of simple rules, you can construct levels for a platform game that has fixed and moving platforms, obstacles such as water pits, and even fireballs that shoot up and try and kill the player.All of this in-game action is governed simply by the shapes and marks drawn on the sheet of paper. Once you are happy with your drawn level you use your iOS device’s camera to capture it and feed it into the Pixel Press app. You can then set about choosing color schemes and the overall look of your game before getting to play it, and you can even create and upload your own art assets if you are so inclined.The whole process is super simple going on what the video shows above, and it sounds like a great way to get kids interested in game making. One final feature which is sure to get kids interested is the ability to share your creations with other users, so someone else with an iPad, for example, can download and play your levels.Rath has set a target of $100,000 for the Kickstarter to be successful, and he’s already nearing $30,000 with 24 days still to go.last_img read more

How Nissan Kia and Mount Gay Rum got caught up promoting a

first_imgShare this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… Artist, Billboard, released their song ‘Sex Change’ this summer. The song denies the existence of trans people, while Billboard sings ‘you can’t change your sex’. In many ways, it’s like Jamaica’s anti-gay ‘murder-music’, which is sadly very popular across the Caribbean.It’s rising fast in the charts. And it comes at a time when the Crop Over and Kadooment festivities are taking place in Barbados. These are major highlights of summer in the Caribbean.Sex Change says we’re ‘An insult to God’‘Sex Change’ has made it to the semi-finals of Pic-O-De-Crop calypso competition, which is a main attraction of the festivities.This competition is one of the most popular avenues for any local singer to advance their work throughout the Caribbean region. So this song will extend far beyond the shores of Barbados. Billboard’s song has a particularly unpleasant post on YouTube. The YouTube video caption reads: ‘It’s an insult to GOD to say that HE made you INCORRECTLY. You ARE whatever sex GOD designed you to be. Anything else is MADNESS!’It is not only private promoters who are pushing this song. The Barbados government is also supporting it. The government-run National Cultural Foundation organizes Pic-O-De-Crop.Moreover, big name brands, are also helping it get air-time. The local dealer for Nissan and Kia cars are sponsoring the event, as well as the brewers of Mount Gay Rum.‘So stop the disgrace, know your place’I am an openly trans woman living in Barbados. I’ve been in transition for the last five years and simply want to integrate with society as I have seen myself since early childhood.So to say that this song is problematic is a gross understatement. Every time the song plays, there are uncensored remarks about ‘chopping off your balls’ and how ‘no matter who you want to impress, [a trans man] will never have a real penis’.What I find most personally disturbing is Billboard saying that gender affirming transitions are a waste of time. He says they are affronting our own dignity as well as the dominantly Christian society of Barbados. He sings: ‘So stop the disgrace, know your place and do not fly in God’s face!’ Got a news tip?

Trans woman calls for immediate end to ‘buggery’ laws in Barbados The 2016 Pic-o-de-Crop festival in Barbardos. | Photo: YouTube Attitudes in Barbados fuel violence against LGBTIsRight now, the song seems to be following me everywhere I go. I hear it on the radio at work, on the bus, or just strolling through a supermarket. It’s very unsettling for me to know this song has attracted such favour with the public as to be well on its way to becoming a number one hit for the 2018 Crop Over season.And, of course, it’s more than just a song. It reflects attitudes that exclude us trans people from getting meaningful employment, proper housing, access adequate healthcare, or even receive police protection when we are subjected to violence.This is not just a hypothetical problem for me. Earlier this year the police were slow to respond when an ex-tenant savagely attacked me with a meat cleaver. One officer admitted to me: ‘[Police] don’t want to deal with people like you.’‘We need some “try-a-dick” medication for this lesbian!’The saddest part for me is that any opposition to this song appears to go unheard or is altogether dismissed.During a recent performance, a lesbian confronted Billboard and the promoters. She said how the song made her feel. In response, the Master of Ceremonies, also a woman, shouted to the audience: ‘Is there a doctor in the house? We need some “try-a-dick” medication for this lesbian!’Barbados wants to be seen as a modern country. So I hope the Barbadian government will act. They must immediately remove Billboard’s song from the Pic-O-De-Crop competition.Also on Gay Star NewsMy life depends on me fighting the Barbados sodomy law A song called ‘Sex Change’ become the latest way for haters to attack LGBTI people in Barbados.

Nepals PM sworn in but loses coalition partner

Nepali Congress secured the most seats but needed a coalition partner to form a government.A constitution was supposed to have been written by the last Constituent Assembly, which was elected in 2008 following the end of a 10-year Maoist insurgency and the overthrow of the centuries-old monarchy.

ETF wins Best Show Team award for delivery of Global Exhibition in

first_imgExhibitions and Trade Fairs (ETF) has pulled off the Best Show Team award at the 2010 Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) awards for their planning and delivery of the world’s largest liquefied natural gas exhibition, LNG16 in Algeria in April 2010.According to Jodie Richmond, General Manager and Chief Executive Officer of ETF, the award recognises the world class ability of ETF including their LNG16 team. “ETF specialises in developing exhibitions for industry associations, including LNG 16 for the global gas industry. It was great to see the LNG 16 team win such a prestigious award while the depth of ETF’s skill was further recognised with our RSVP Show Team also a finalist in this category. “Our LNG team’s performance was truly outstanding having sold out the exhibition and exceeded sponsorship targets to deliver a sophisticated trade exhibition in a venue in Algeria, which was still under construction, and with the Icelandic volcano erupting only four days before opening”. “ETF has now delivered the LNG Exhibition for associations in five continents including currently for the American Gas Association in Houston in 2013. The innovations we create internationally are incorporated into the exhibitions we develop for associations in Australia”, Jodie said.ETF’s key LNG 16 team members, Exhibition Director, Rodney Cox and Operations Manager, Belinda Maund, and their team, met all of the challenges associated with managing such a complex exhibition in Algeria. In the process ETF fulfilled the EEAA’s award criteria of Accessibility, Responsiveness, Customer Service, Creativity, Innovation and Client/Show Research to win the prestigious Best Show Team award. “We believe that the reason we continue to be reappointed to manage this major global exhibition is because of our commitment to its ongoing development. Fundamentally the exhibition industry sells commercial opportunity and trust. It was the trust our team had earned with our host association and exhibitors that proved to be the vital element with such a difficult event. Under circumstances such as those we experienced in Algeria you truly discover the calibre of your team, the culture of your company and the difference “Aussie can do” makes. “One of the most rewarding things for me was the legacy we left behind in Algeria in terms of providing hands-on exhibitions and event management experience to the local university students we employed. Hopefully they will go on to use the skills they learned to help develop the fledgling events industry in Algeria,” Rodney said. Source = Exhibitions & Trade Fairs (ETF)last_img read more

first_imgAzerbaijan recently organised a 3-city event titled ‘Discover Azerbaijan Roadshow’ in Mumbai, Delhi and Ahmedabad in September to educate the Indian market to travel to the South Caucasus region. Sachin Nene, Regional General Manager- Air Arabia, India, said, “Azerbaijan is relatively new to Indians as a tourist destination. Through these roadshows, our efforts have been centred towards reaching out to the best performing travel agents and tour operators across three cities and grow their knowledge about Azerbaijan. The destination needs a lot of promotional efforts like this to get itself acquainted with the Indian travel trade fraternity and thereby witness the good number of Indian tourist.” Ildirim Ganbarov, Business Development Manager, Pasha Travels, said, “Exhibitors from Azerbaijan focused on targeting not only the MICE traveller segment but also the leisure segment though MICE have been till now the best performing sectors from India. The exhibitors present at the roadshow not only showcased their product offerings in Baku but also exhibited other destinations like Shabran, Guba, Shahdag, Shamakha, Qabala, Sheki, Ganja, Lankaran, Nakhichevan and Naftalan.” The Indian market has been performing significantly well for Air Arabia as the airline recorded 95% passenger from this market across all 13 Indian cities from where the airline operates. Between April and August this year Air Arabia recorded 850 Indian passengers. Nene said that for Air Arabia, 80% of the Indian travellers to Azerbaijan are from the MICE segment.

We are working towards tie-ups with Cox & Kings, SOTC, Thomas Cook, etc., to target the leisure traveller segment from the Indian market next year. India is an emerging market for Azerbaijan and we are hopeful that our promotional efforts will help us establish Azerbaijan as a prominent destination for the Indian travellers,” Nene concluded.

Biomass plant causes a stink

first_imgBy Constantinos PsillidesA BIOMASS power plant operating near the village of Kato Moni in the Nicosia district is suspected of emitting high doses of potentially lethal gas, according to the House Environmental Committee.Greens’ MP Yiorgos Perdikis told the press that during a discussion on pollution issues plaguing the village residents, officials from the Labour Inspection Department admitted that the power plant was emitting high levels of hydrogen sulphide, a colourless gas with the odour of rotten eggs that is both poisonous and flammable.“Breathing in this gas has damaging consequences to local residents’ health. We call upon all competent authorities to immediately step in and sort this problem out,” said Perdikis, who added that the company hasn’t taken any corrective measures.The company has not responded to the criticism.Kato Moni residents are outraged over a number of animal farms that operate near the village. It is estimated that over 75,000 pigs are housed in the three farms near the community.
