10 December 2010The chair of the United Nations committee monitoring the arms embargo imposed on Iran over its nuclear programme voiced deep concern today that violations of the sanctions are continuing. Ambassador Tsuneo Nishida of Japan told the Security Council, which first imposed the sanctions in 2006, that the committee had received communications from two Member States who reported two separate incidents of violations of provisions of resolution 1747, which imposes a ban on the export and procurement of all arms and related materiel from Iran.In the first case, a Member State informed the committee that it had seized 13 shipping containers of illegal arms reportedly originating from Iran, and that a comprehensive report on the results of its investigations would be forthcoming.Another Member State informed the committee that authorities at one of its harbours had seized a container, originating from Iran and destined for Syria, holding the high-potential explosive “T4” or “RDX.” As in the first case, the Member State is carrying out further investigations, Mr. Nishida said, as he presented his final 90-day report, covering the period from 16 September to December 2010. “It is a matter of grave concern,” he said, “that the apparent pattern of sanctions violations involving prohibited arms transfers from Iran, first highlighted publicly by the Committee a year ago, is continuing.”Resolution 1737 of December 2006 banned trade with Iran in all items, materials, equipment, goods and technology which could contribute to the country’s enrichment-related, reprocessing or heavy water-related activities, or to the development of nuclear-weapon delivery systems.Resolution 1747 of the following year tightened the sanctions by imposing a ban on arms sales and expanding the freeze on assets. The Council imposed further sanctions against Iran in resolution 1803 in 2008. These included the inspection of cargo suspected of carrying prohibited goods, the tighter monitoring of financial institutions and the extension of travel bans and asset freezes, over its nuclear programme.Then in June of this year, the Council imposed a fourth round of sanctions through resolution 1929, in which it also decided that Iran shall not acquire an interest in any commercial activity in another State involving uranium mining, production or use of nuclear materials and technology.Iran’s nuclear programme – which its officials have stated is for peaceful purposes, but some other countries contend is driven by military ambitions – has been a matter of international concern since the discovery in 2003 that the country had concealed its nuclear activities for 18 years in breach of its obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Ohio State freshman center Kaleb Wesson posts up against Michigan center Moritz Wagner in the matchup between the two teams on Feb. 18, 2018. Michigan won 74-62. Credit: Jacob Myers | Managing Editor for ContentA new season begins for the Ohio State men’s basketball team.That seemed to be the narrative of the team after its loss to Penn State in the Buckeyes’ first game of the Big Ten tournament. It will take time to shake off the loss, but their season is not over.That new season begins at 4:30 p.m. Thursday when the fifth-seeded Buckeyes travel to Boise, Idaho, to face 12th-seeded South Dakota State in Ohio State’s first game in the NCAA Tournament since the 2014-15 season.Should Ohio State advance past the Jackrabbits, it will likely take on fourth-seeded Gonzaga, a team that stomped the Buckeyes 86-59 in the first meeting between the two. After that, it could be top-seeded Xavier. Projected StartersSouth Dakota StateG — Brandon Key — Junior, 5-foot-10, 180 lbs., 6.0 ppg, 1.5 rpg, 3.3 apgG — David Jenkins — Freshman, 6-foot-2, 190 lbs., 16.1 ppg, 3.3 rpg, 1.6 apgF — Skyler Flatten — Senior, 6-foot-6, 215 lbs., 7.0 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 1.2 apgF — Reed Tellinghuisen — Senior, 6-foot-7, 215 lbs., 12.0 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 1.6 apgC — Mike Daum — Junior, 6-foot-9, 250 lbs., 23.8 ppgs, 10.4 rpg, 1.3 apgOhio StateG — C.J.

Jackson, Kam Williams and Andrew Dakich — to step up defensively. That has not been the key to South Dakota State’s success in 2018. One of its starting two guards is under 6-foot, and the other is only 6-foot-2, meaning the Buckeyes should not run into a size mismatch like it has in the past against teams like Penn State.Instead of relying on their guards, the Jackrabbits have received solid production from freshman guard David Jenkins, but they have leaned on junior center Mike Daum when they need production. Nicknamed “The Daum-inator,” the 6-foot-9 center has demonstrated an ability to score from all areas on the court, making 47.4 percent of shots from 2 and 42.9 percent from 3. Ohio State has had mixed levels of success against star centers this season. It held Michigan’s 6-foot-11 Moritz Wagner to a combined 26 points in the two games played and North Carolina center Luke Maye to nine points in the one game between the two teams. However, the Buckeyes allowed Purdue’s 7-foot-2 center Isaac Haas to drop 18, Butler forward Kelan Martin to score 24 and Gonzaga center Johnathan Williams to put up 21 points.However, most of the struggles came earlier in the season. Ohio State freshman center Kaleb Wesson has improved his defense since those games — he was matched up with Williams in his first career start. Though his defense is still far from perfect and needs improving, he should be able to prevent Daum from posting his 13th 30-point game on the Buckeyes.Overall, the Jackrabbits are not a team that would appear to give Ohio State much matchup problems. South Dakota State has struggled to force turnovers this season, which is good for an Ohio State team that has run into turnover issues throughout the campaign. The Jackrabbits have also struggled to defend against opponents who derive most of their offensive production in the post. Opposing teams have generated 52.4 percent of their points from inside the arc and are shooting 49.8 percent inside. Ohio State, on the other hand, has scored 55.4 percent of its points inside this season, 30th-highest in the nation, while shooting 55.1 percent inside, 29th-best. South Dakota State won’t make any mistakes — it has the lowest turnover rate this season. It also has lived and died by the 3 this season, posting a 26th-best 39.2 percent shooting rate from 3 while generating 37.5 percent of its offense from beyond the arc, 37th-highest in the country.Opponents have find about average success against Ohio State from 3, shooting 34.6 percent (149th-best), but have consistently found that to be the way to attack the Buckeyes. Ohio State has seen opposing teams score 35.1 percent of their total points from 3, the 55th-highest rate in the country.The Bottom LineThis game in a way has that feeling of a typical five-seed vs. 12-seed matchup in the tournament. Many are not giving South Dakota State a chance. They don’t have the typical characteristics of a team that has given Ohio State trouble this season and do not have a single Tier-A win — a top-50 win adjusting for location — on their schedule, according to advanced statistics website KenPom.com. The ability of the Jackrabbits to shoot 3s with success should make the game interesting, but outside of Daum, they do not have the interior defense to be able to stop players like redshirt junior Keita Bates-Diop and Wesson from having big games.PredictionOhio State wins 77-68
The Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance (IRMA), a group that includes stakeholders from the mining industry, organised labor, non-governmental organisations, impacted communities, and businesses, recently released a draft Standard for Responsible Mining for public comment. The draft Standard is a proposed set of principles to improve social and environmental performance and is the result of eight years of collaboration between groups who have historically been at odds. It seeks to emulate for industrial-scale mine sites what has been done with certification schemes in agriculture, forestry and fisheries.“Each of us wants a future where mining companies make a positive contribution to local communities and minimise any impact on land and water, while serving the needs of modern society,” said Jon Samuel, Group Head of Government and Social Affairs at international mining company Anglo American. “Though we don’t always see eye to eye on every issue, IRMA has developed a draft set of leading edge practices and a new definition of more responsible mining.”“IndustriALL Global Union, as the world’s biggest global union, is proud to be associated with IRMA. This is a joint effort to develop a credible multi-stakeholder certification and assurance reporting system for the mining industry which is responsive to the urgent challenges of sustainable development,” said Glen Mpufane, Mining Director at IndustriALL, a global union federation, and a former miner from South Africa.While IRMA’s Steering Committee says it has confidence that the draft Standard for Responsible Mining has successfully integrated varied perspectives from each sector, it is important to note that the individuals, organisations and companies on the Steering Committee have not reached agreement on all aspects of the Standard. However, they believe that “now is an appropriate time to open up the Standard to broader consultation and are therefore asking for a first round of feedback and input from the public, businesses and other stakeholders.”After the 22 October comment deadline, they will make revisions to the draft Standard for Responsible Mining and release a second draft for an additional comment period before releasing the final Standard. The goal is to develop a certification scheme based on independent third-party verification and in compliance with ISEAL Alliance’s Code of Good Practice for standard-setting. “With this set of new guiding principles for mine sites, we are raising the bar on environmental and human rights standards for mining,” said Jennifer Krill, Executive Director at Earthworks, an international mining reform group. “The credibility of this proposed new system lies in the unprecedented participation of leaders from every sector involved in mining.”The process for mining materials, particularly high value metals and diamonds, can have significant social and environmental impacts and result in conflict between mining companies, local communities and other stakeholders. With growing awareness and demand for eco and socially-responsible products by consumers, mining companies’ customers – jewelers, electronics businesses and others – have sought assurances that minerals are mined responsibly.The Standard for Responsible Mining will cover mine sites, not mining companies, and will not certify extraction of energy fuels (uranium, coal, oil or gas). The best practices for mining will include elements such as consideration of ecologically and culturally significant areas with regard to the location of the mine; reducing environmental impacts, such as habitat loss and pollution; health and safety provisions for workers; free, prior and informed consent of indigenous peoples; and transparency in revenue payments from companies to governments.“With this draft Standard for Responsible Mining we have an unprecedented opportunity to better the lives of communities sitting on natural resources,” said Larson Bill of the Western Shoshone Defense Project. “By giving feedback on this draft, native peoples around the globe can help ensure greater respect of our rights and better control over our future when evaluating mine proposals on our lands.”“We believe IRMA will do much to improve the entire industry by motivating mine operators to work towards, and ultimately achieve, certification,” says Anisa Kamadoli Costa, Vice President, Global Sustainability & Corporate Responsibility at Tiffany & Co. “We’ve witnessed great success in similar certification initiatives, such as the Forest Stewardship Council, in raising the bar for an entire industry and increasing consumer awareness of responsible practices. Because IRMA includes the same key components – credibility in the marketplace through a multi-stakeholder approach and independent third-party verification – we hope this initiative will have similar success.”

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram As Victoria is heading for a state election this year, it is only natural that political debate will become more and more heated. But according to Minister for Families and Children, Early Childhood Education, and Youth Affairs, Jenny Mikakos, there’s significant risk that this debate will head to race baiting. Last week, the minister was suspended from parliament after accusing Liberal Party members of employing racist rhetoric. Today it’s the Africans, tomorrow will be the Indians, the day after the Chinese and then it will be the Greeks. As soon as bigots are given permission to attack other members of the community on the basis of their ethnicity their religion or their race, then everyone is fair game, everyone who is “different” becomes potentially the victim of abuse”“I did make some comments about racism,” she admits. “I believe that they were fair comments based on behaviour that we’ve seen in recent weeks.”Despite paying a price for her comment, the minister stands by her views. “It is very clear to me that the Liberal Party, both on a Victorian level and nationally, has decided to replicate Donald Trump’s political strategy and engage in race baiting,” she says, pointing to comments made by Federal Minister of Home Affairs, Peter Dutton about a perceived ‘African gang issue’ in Melbourne. “He was backed up by Malcolm Turnbull himself and this has certainly been the rhetoric that we have heard from the Victorian Liberal Party for many months now, talking about African youth gangs in particular.” Minister Mikakos says that this has already escalated to the point where people working for her, for the state government, have reported being racially vilified on public transport. “These are people who are middle-aged women, they can never be mistaken for being members of youth gangs,” she points out. “But because they can clearly be identified as being of African descent they have been the victim of appalling racial abuse. I’m concerned about where this is all going,” she adds and warns that Victoria is in danger of losing one of its key elements. “We’ve had very strong bipartisanship around supporting multiculturalism in Victoria for decades and that is something that as Victorians we should all be very proud of. “What I’m fearful of is that the Liberal Party is walking away from that. I think it is a political strategy designed to play into some elements in the community who have prejudiced views and this is very alarming to me. Because now it is focused around the African community but as soon as we give permission to bigots to openly preach what they might be thinking openly, we’re opening up a can of worms. Today it’s the Africans, tomorrow it will be the Indians, the day after, the Chinese and then it will be the Greeks. “As soon as bigots are given permission to attack other members of the community on the basis of their ethnicity their religion or their race, then everyone is fair game, everyone who is ‘different’ becomes potentially the victim of abuse.”Jenny Mikakos knows all too well what this means. “Many of us in politics who come from migrant backgrounds, myself included, have that personal experience of schoolyard bullying because of our ethnicity. “That’s why we are more sensitive to this, to having those issues play out in the broader community. It’s an ugly thing and I worry that we will see far right-wing brutes popping their head up now trying to gain some legitimacy in the media and we’ve already seen neo-Nazi groups trying to promote vigilante behaviour. I worry where it is going to end up.”She claims she’s not alone in this. “I’ve had private conversations with Liberal politicians about what I said in the parliament and I know that some of them have very deep reservations and concerns about the political direction their party has been heading in over the past year,” she says calling all members to express these concerns publicly and strongly to their leadership. “They are putting the social cohesion of our community at risk,” she warns.“They are sending signals that they are abandoning bipartisanship for multiculturalism to gain some political advantage and that they will try to lump together a whole community and call them responsible for the action of a very small number of young people. “When some young people of Greek background commit a crime – and we’ve seen terrible crimes being committed – the Greek community is not held responsible, we don’t have that kind of finger-pointing, so it is important that our community does not point the finger at other communities.”That is not to say that the minister is in denial about the real social problems that are at the core of this phenomenon. “We acknowledge that there are some issues particularly in Melbourne’s western suburbs and we are supporting Victorian Police in their efforts to address these issues,” she says, making reference to the Andrews Government’s “historic” $2 billion Community Safety Statement, which includes tough new laws and police powers, and the addition of 3,135 police officers to the Victorian force, alongside improved technology and new and upgraded police stations. It is this support, she argues, that allowed for Victoria Police to arrest 850 youth offenders since May 2016. “So we are not ignoring that issue,” she says. “But we always have issues with all newly arrived communities and the young people, this is not a new phenomenon. “In every wave of new immigrants or refugees, we have issues of young people disengaging from school and from positive activities in the community and getting in trouble with the police.” As Minister for Families and Youth, she believes that the answer lies in education and training. “We know the most effective way to keep young people out of trouble with the criminal justice system is to give them hope for the future, to link them with training and help them find a job,” she says. “These are far more effective strategies than having young people becoming involved in the criminal justice system.” But what does the Minister for Youth say to those young people who will come to the ballots this year, worrying about employment security and housing affordability? “The biggest issue for young people is unemployment and this is where we are making a lot of effort. Our government is focused on education and training and creating more jobs. We are working very strongly to create more jobs in Victoria, we are investing in new infrastructure that creates enormous jobs opportunities.” This may well be true, but it may not play a role in this election, given that as we move towards the elections, it is by now obvious that the Victorian Opposition will steer political debate to the issue of law and order. Minister Mikakos is not trying to shy away from it. “Let’s have a proper debate about law and order, but let’s not make it about race and ethnicity,” she says, arguing that the biggest law and order issue that Victoria is facing is family violence. “Half of the police’s time and effort is actually devoted to dealing with family violence in our communities but it’s hidden away behind closed doors and people don’t see it,” she says.As for the issue of youth offenders, she points to statistics which show a decline. What’s more, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics Victoria has fewer young offenders than New South Wales and Queensland: 1,573 young offenders were recorded per 100,000 in Victoria, compared to 2,632 in Queensland and 2,741 in New South Wales. “And yet Peter Dutton comes out publicly and talks about ‘gang issues’ in Victoria, not in New South Wales which has a Liberal government, or within his own electorate.”Statistics are one thing, but at the end of the day, this debate about racism and crime threatens the very fabric of Australian society. Stressing the need to fight racist rhetoric, she points to the “enormous leadership role” that the Greek community has played in championing multiculturalism for decades. “It’s not just because it benefits our community, but because we know it’s going to benefit the entire state,” she says. “We’re very happy to have half the population in Victoria have parents born overseas. It adds to the richness and diversity of our society.”
KUSI Newsroom, October 22, 2018 Posted: October 22, 2018 KUSI Newsroom OCEANSIDE (KUSI) – A homeless man was arrested in connection with the slaying of a retiree two months ago in his Oceanside home, police said Monday.DNA evidence obtained from the scene of 77-year-old John Roth’s slaying in August led homicide detectives to identify 21-year-old Carey Lamont Reid Jr. as the perpetrator, Oceanside Police spokesman Tom Bussey said.

Around 150 hourly-paid workers at the Limassol general hospital went on strike Thursday morning citing acute understaffing issues but eventually went back to work after agreeing to give 10 days to the management to hire more staff.The strike started at 6.30am and involved around 150 cleaners, surgery room messengers, room attendants and kitchen staff.Room attendants were the last to end the strike, at around 5pm.The cleaners, which was the biggest group numbering around 90 people, along with messengers went back to work earlier after given reassurances more staff would be hired. The kitchen staff went back to work in the morning after getting the same reassurances.The staff demanded that vacancies are filled including hiring staff to fill in for colleagues on long-term sick leave so that they can meet their working schedules over the summer holiday period and the days off owed to them for working on holidays. They also asked that messengers were hired to work irregular hours.Their unions said on Thursday afternoon that workers had agreed to give a 10-day deadline so that more staff was hired.Room attendants, who had to also perform messenger duties, were reassured that arrangements would be made so there were messengers on all shifts.If the promises are not kept, workers will escalate measures, the unions said.The strike was announced after workers reportedly turned down an offer by the management to hire four people, arguing they needed at least 20 cleaners and three room attendants.Later on Thursday, Health Minister Constantinos Ioannou assigned responsibility for the frustrated hospital staff to the state health services (Okypy), which he said shows continuous worrying negligence in “the management and resolution of the problem which arose a few days ago among the staff of the Limassol general hospital”.Striking staff that gathered outside the hospital told media that due to the serious understaffing problem, they had to work long hours and were unable to even take a day off.“The work schedule cannot be met, either for holidays or shifts,” a cleaner said.She gave as an example the case of a room attendant who was doing 12.5-hour night shifts and was forced to also perform messenger duties. ‘This is inhumane,” she said.Another staff member said that it was already July and they were not able to take “not even a day off”.“We have been working on holidays for the past three years but we have yet to receive our corresponding days off,” she said.But according to Christos Nicolaou, Okypy executive director for the Limassol-Paphos district, the staff asked for two more cleaners to be able to do the summer holiday schedule but management offered to hire four.He also said there was no delay in dealing with the issue. The proposal to hire four people was submitted on Wednesday noon, while meetings had taken place with unions twice, he said.“Things should not have gone this far,” he told state broadcaster CyBC radio on Thursday morning.He said the problem is that a number of staff members were on long sick leave, while when the summer holidays schedule was prepared, four more persons went on sick leave worsening the situation.Nicolaou said he hoped that by the end of the week the four new people would be hired.The head of the House health committee, Costas Constantinou, who was along with other MPs on a scheduled a visit to the hospital, expressed concern. There might have been delays in dealing with the problems, he said, but “we were informed solutions were given to the problems for which the strike is taking place.”Since the unions and workers were informed of the solutions, “why the strike today?” he asked.
