In a statement, UNSMIL reminded all parties that under international humanitarian law, the repeated attacks on civilian facilities in recent days may constitute war crimes. With significant efforts under way towards a comprehensive ceasefire and progress made on de-escalating hostilities – such as in the Oil Crescent area – the UN Mission urged all military actors to desist from taking actions that increase tensions. UNSMIL chief Bernardino Léon has been facilitating successive rounds of talks between Libyan parties – initially hosted by the UN Office at Geneva and then moving on to Algeria and, just last week, Morocco – and recently warned that while the parties are entering a “decisive round” in the negotiations, ongoing fighting in Libya and tensions elsewhere in the region sounded “another alarm” regarding the delicate nature of the country’s peace-building process.
In an appeal to mark the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples on Friday (9 August), UN-appointed experts said that “nation-building” had been largely responsible for “ongoing discrimination” against native speakers.“Over time, such policies can undermine and effectively destroy a culture and even a people”, the experts cautioned, before insisting that indigenous languages allowed freedom of expression and conscience that are critical to people’s dignity, culture and political representation.The experts – who include panels that report to the Human Rights Council (HRC) and the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), along with a UN-appointed investigator known as a Special Rapporteur, commended States that support a Decade of Indigenous Languages.“Ten years would provide the time and resources necessary to reverse the historic destruction of indigenous languages and reclaim these languages for the future of indigenous peoples and the world community, alike,” they said. In line with a special UN Declaration, indigenous peoples everywhere are recognized as having the right to revitalize, use, develop and transmit their languages to future generations. Importantly, this includes the right to establish and control education, media, and the institutions that govern them, the UN-appointed independent experts noted.“We call on UN member States to recognise, protect and promote indigenous languages through legislation, policies and other strategies in full cooperation with indigenous peoples,” the experts said, underlining the need for “sustained support for bilingual and mother tongue education…access to health, employment, judicial and other public services in the languages of indigenous peoples, including through cyberspace and the internet”.

Dépistage prénatal de la trisomie 21 : un projet de loi fait débatLe projet de loi sur la limitation du dépistage prénatal de la trisomie 21 n’a pas fini de faire parler de lui. Voté le 15 février dernier par les députés, un amendement pourrait contraindre les femmes enceintes à disposer de l’accord de leur médecin pour se faire dépister. Le dépistage ne serait donc plus systématique.Avant le 15 février, l’article 9 de la loi sur la bioéthique évoquait la mise à disposition de “toute femme enceinte au cours d’une consultation médicale” des examens de dépistage de la trisomie 21 chez leur futur enfant. Depuis, le texte modifié et voté par les députés, ajoute la mention “lorsque les conditions médicales le nécessitent”, un amendement défendu par Jean Leonetti, député UMP, contre l’avis du ministre de la Santé, Xavier Bertrand.À lire aussiCancer du poumon : une prise de sang pour repérer les anomalies génétiquesJusqu’à présent, les gynécologues proposaient à leurs patientes enceintes une prise de sang aux alentours de trois mois de grossesse afin d’évaluer les risques de trisomie 21 de leur fœtus. Avec le nouvel amendement, ces femmes n’auraient accès au dépistage que si le médecin le juge nécessaire. Pour les professionnels du monde médical, le texte va à l’encontre des droits du patient. Le Sénat doit prochainement statuer sur cet amendement. Une décision cruciale qui inquiète le docteur Nicolas Fries, président du Collège français d’échographie fœtal. Celui-ci réagit dans Le Parisien : “Si la loi passe en l’état au Sénat, il y aura une vraie inégalité d’information des femmes en fonction du médecin sur qui elles tombent. Certaines sauront que le dépistage existe, d’autres non. Le médecin deviendra le seul juge, et c’est très dangereux !”.A l’heure actuelle, la trisomie 21 touche 1 enfant sur 700. En France, 85% des cas sont détectés avant la naissance.Le 9 mars 2011 à 13:48 • Emmanuel Perrin

AS Roma’s Alessandro Florenzi has hailed Eusebio Di Francesco’s tactical changes in their shock 3-0 win over Barcelona and insists that they were “tactically a step above” their opponentsAfter a 4-1 defeat at the Nou Camp during their first leg clash, Roma were heavily expected to be eliminated on Tuesday night against a Barcelona side that have gone an incredible 38 games unbeaten in La Liga.Yet, the Giallorossi left the Catalan giants stunned at the Stadio Olimpico with a new 3-4-1-2 formation proving to be a deadly move on Barcelona with Edin Dzeko, Daniele de Rossi and Kostas Manolas goals securing a 3-0 win for the hosts.“To be honest, we never really felt it was at risk tonight, as Barcelona did nothing to cause us problems. We put in the perfect performance,” Florenzi told Mediaset Premium (via Football-Italia).“Tactically, we were a step above them. If Barcelona don’t get to play the ball to feet and pass it around comfortably, they really struggle.”Quiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.The defender remained evasive in regards to the new formation being used in future matches.“The Coach will decide, but what we saw tonight should increase this man’s credibility. We players never doubted him, but some in the media and the stands…” said the 27 year-old.“At half-time, he told us to stay calm, as we knew that we could achieve this miracle. We brought home an historic result. Roma hadn’t been in a semi-final for 34 years.“I really like having three defenders, as it gives me more security to go forward and put crosses in, but it’s up to the Coach to decide.“It was wonderful to see the Olimpico packed. I expect to see this many fans in the Derby against Lazio too.”
Derby County manager Frank Lampard insists the club have received no offer from Burnley or any other Premier League club for Jayden Bogle.The 18-year-old has been drawing attention from a host of top-flight teams and Lampard says he’s not surprised.Burnley have been one of the teams linked with a move for the young right-back who has broken into the Derby first team this season, under the tutelage of Lampard.But the former Chelsea midfielder, whose side visit the St. Mary’s to take Southampton in a FA Cup replay on Wednesday night, said Derby have had no contact.Frank Lampard admits Chelsea may struggle for top-six spot Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Chelsea manager Frank Lampard couldn’t offer any guarantees on a top-six finish this season due to the strong competition.Asked if he was aware of any interest in Bogle, Lampard said, according to Lancashire Telegraph: “No, I am not but I wouldn’t be surprised because from the minute I have been here Jayden Bogle has been fantastic.”“I heard he was a talent, and he has shown that he can perform at a top level in the Championship and in our Carabao Cup run at Manchester United and at Chelsea.”“So, of course, people will look at players who are performing that well.”

Emree Weaver/The Texas TribuneState Rep. Dan Huberty, R-Houston, chairman of the House Public Education Committee, and colleagues speak during deliberation of the House School Finance plan.After more than three hours of discussion, the Texas House nearly unanimously passed a comprehensive bill to reform the way schools are funded and slow the growth of property tax bills.House Bill 3 would increase base funding for each student by $890, fund full-day pre-K for low-income 4-year-olds in most school districts, compress tax rates for all districts and reduce the amount of money wealthier districts pay the state in recapture payments to shore up poorer districts. It now would also provide across-the-board raises for all full-time school employees who are not administrators, after Democrats spearheaded a change in the bill.“We are finally reforming public education in Texas, and not by court order, so that’s a pretty important thing,” said the bill’s author, Rep. Dan Huberty, a Republican who chairs the House Public Education Committee. The vast majority of House lawmakers signed on to the bill as co-authors. Rep. Jonathan Stickland, R-Bedford, was the lone no vote.The bill will now make its way to the Senate. The upper chamber last week increased the amount it had planned to set aside for public education and property tax reform to match the House’s original proposal. While House leaders have pitched a single comprehensive school finance bill and edited it over time, the Senate has taken a more winding path to legislating on this issue. One key sticking point between the two chambers: teacher pay. The Senate has approved a bill proposing $5,000 across-the-board raises for Texas teachers. The House has advocated for more flexibility for school districts in teacher salaries, though the bill was amended Wednesday to give all school employees pay raises of about $1,850, on average.As originally proposed by Huberty, HB 3 would put $6.3 billion into public education and $2.7 billion toward slowing the growth of school district property taxes. It is unclear exactly what the new cost of the bill is, with the amendments passed.Debate on the floor was largely civil and lacked a lot of the drama that usually accompanies business on such large pieces of legislation. Rep. Matt Schaefer, R-Tyler, a member of the hardline conservative faction of the House, needled Huberty on the floor over how exactly HB 3 would ensure tax bills wouldn’t balloon in the future, even while property values continue to skyrocket.“There is real property tax relief in this bill, but my point is that I don’t see how it doesn’t get washed out very quickly,” Schaefer said. Share Schaefer joined the vast majority of members in approving the bill Wednesday.Many House lawmakers ended up withdrawing their amendments, including a couple of controversial ones to reduce funding for some charter schools and add a state-funded merit pay program.The most notable amendment Wednesday, was the teacher pay raise provision filed by House Democratic Caucus Chair Chris Turner, D-Grand Prairie. It would require school districts to using some of the extra money they receive in the bill to give the pay raises. It appears to serve as an attempt to compromise on an issue that quickly became a fault line between the House and Senate on how to spend money on schools.Until Wednesday, Republican House Speaker Dennis Bonnen has said he would prefer to give school districts flexibility on how to use additional funding and that he does not favor a key Senate proposal for $5,000 teacher pay raises.“This is a sustainable way of providing increased compensation to our teachers and other employees,” Turner said Wednesday afternoon, explaining his amendment to his peers in the House. “It establishes a floor, but it requires every school district to spend at least 25 percent of its basic allotment increase on pay raises. They can go beyond that if they wish to.”Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, the Republican president of the Senate, has prioritized $5,000 across-the-board teacher pay raises over other measures to improve school finance, championing legislation that would do so starting during his January inauguration. That $4 billion piece of legislation, Senate Bill 3, passed unanimously out of the Senate last month.Turner’s amendment would not add to the cost of HB 3, but rather mandate school districts to use a quarter of the additional funding they receive to provide raises for school district employees who are not administrators — with the majority going to across-the-board raises for full-time employees and the rest going to discretionary raises. This provision would apply any time the Legislature raises the base funding per student in the future.The raises backed by the House would also go to support staff — costing about $2.4 billion, according to Turner’s office. The Senate’s proposed raises would be for teachers and librarians only.Rep. Richard Peña Raymond, D-Laredo, had planned to propose a provision similar to the Senate’s that would give full-time teachers, librarians, counselors and nurses $5,000 pay raises. But he chose to pull it down and publicly support Turner’s amendment instead.The Senate Finance Committee Wednesday voted out a version of its budget that also includes $2.3 billion for school finance reform — but the Senate does not have a clear plan outlined for how to deliver that money to schools. It also includes $2.7 billion for property tax relief, but it’s still unclear how the upper chamber’s proposal would apply, if at all, to school districts.This piece was originally published in The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.

He remained in Soho afterwards, where celebrations continued well into the night.When he decided it was time to go home, Barwick set off towards Tottenham Court Road tube station. It was around 1.10am on Sunday 8 July, while he walked up Greek Street, that he was attacked.The attacker used offensive language, leading police to suspect this was a hate crime. He also stole Barwick’s mobile phone before running off.Police have scoured CCTV footage but launched an appeal in mid August for help from the public. They want to hear from anyone who may have seen anything or have any information.Barwick lives in Debden in Epping Forest, north-east London. He runs a pet shop but is now on crutches and wearing a spinal brace. He has had to stay home since the attack.‘I went straight down’‘I was out with my sister, my nieces and my friends, we had a lovely day out drinking. Pride is brilliant, the atmosphere is so amazing,’ he told the Evening Standard.‘You meet so many people and I’m very social, I talk to everybody. Then we went down to Soho afterwards.’Off the actual attack, he says: ‘I felt a crack on my back like I was kicked. I went straight down. They took my phone and ran, it was all over in a second.’ A man whose spine was fractured in an attack on the street after Pride in London has spoken out about the incident. Currently unable to work, he’s struggling to cover his living expenses. GAYSTARNEWS- Barwick told GSN the attacker yelled, ‘Oi, you fucking poof!’Barwick managed to get himself to the tube station and caught the train to Stratford, but says the pain became agonizing. He was taken to hospital, where he remained for ten days.He is now wearing a spinal brace and undergoing physiotherapy.‘Struggling’‘I’ve been out since I was 18 and never come across any hate stuff like this,’ he says.‘I’m not working at the moment, my shop is struggling, I’m relying on friends and family and borrowing money to keep myself going. It’s horrible.’He has launched a GoFundMe to help cover his expenses while he recuperates.On his Facebook, he said of the crowdfunder, ‘I’m proud and didn’t think I’d have to do this but they ruined my life and financially it’s hard.’He has been told that following recuperation, there should be no permanent damage, although it’s still too early to know this for sure.Anyone in the UK with information is asked to contact the Community Safety Unit at Westminster by calling 101.

Early signs of cataracts in your parents and how to help 0 Comments Share YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — Journalists were negotiating with Myanmar officials Thursday to restore their access to the Parliament chamber after being pushed out because pictures of snoozing lawmakers were published online.Reporters in the capital, Naypyitaw, were told on Tuesday they would have to watch proceedings on TV from the corridor. The pictures of sleeping MPs was the main reason cited by Kyaw Soe, director general of the Union Parliament, which handles administrative duties. Other embarrassing pictures have circulated showing lawmakers using iPad devices while in session. Another appeared to show an army representative leaning over to press a voting button for a missing lawmaker.In a minor victory, the journalists were told they could occupy the upper floor of the chamber, but they were continuing to negotiate Thursday evening. While the new location could be sufficient for text reporters, it would give visual journalists only a distant, back view of the MPs. Officials offered to provide handout images instead, but independent media consider that unacceptable.“The restriction is totally unacceptable. Press freedom is not guaranteed in the country but only in the hands of those in power. They can revoke press freedom any time they like,” Zaw Thet Htway, a former political prisoner and editor in chief of Tomorrow weekly journal.Myanmar started moving from a half-century of military rule to democracy in 2011 and many of its political reforms, such as media freedom, have stalled. About 10 journalists have been jailed and nearly a dozen are facing trials.The constitution also allots a quarter of the seats in Parliament to the military, a number that gives it veto power over constitutional amendments.

What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb is expected to sit out practice on Tuesday with a thigh contusion, but should return Wednesday, head coach Ken Whisenhunt said.“Kevin’s got a contusion on his thigh,” he told media on Tuesday. “I’m not sure if he’ll practice today — he’s a little bit stiff — but I expect him to practice tomorrow.”Kolb, often criticized for time spent on the sidelines being injured, is also expected to start the Hall of Fame Game on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, the beginning of the Red Birds’ preseason. Top Stories Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away “He’s going to start Sunday,” said Whiz. “We’ll have a rotation for how we do the starts, which we’ve done before.”Kolb was injured by defensive lineman David Carter, who banged knees with the QB during a sprint-draw, something Whisenhunt said is not uncommon.Arizona Sports 620’s Kyndra de St. Aubin contributed to this report.

In this June 18, 2019, photo, professional rock climber Alex Honnold blows on his chalked hands at the Earth Treks gym in Englewood, Colo. His fear is that maybe his 2017 ropeless climb of El Capitan in Yosemite featured in the spine-tingling, Academy Award-winning film “Free Solo,” just might be the summit of his career. If that’s the case, he’s made peace with it. These days, he’s just as content taking a safer route in indoor climbing gyms. (AP Photo/Thomas Peipert) Rock star: After ‘Free Solo,’ climber unsure of next journey DENVER — Rock climber Alex Honnold meticulously chalked his hands before pulling himself up to the thin ledge inside the climate-controlled climbing gym. He dangled by his finger tips for a bit and then fell back to the bouncy mat.Nice and safe. No heart-pounding fear of a 3,000-foot drop, either.In the aftermath of the Academy Award winning documentary “Free Solo ,” Honnold is trying to get a grip on his sudden fame (he’s recognized everywhere), his image (he’s not really that aloof) and most of all what exactly he does next to top that spine-tingling feat .His realization: Maybe his 2017 ropeless climb of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park that’s chronicled in the film just might be the summit of his career. Maybe his cliff-hanger sequel doesn’t exist.If so, he’s at peace. These days, he’s content taking a less treacherous path inside climbing gyms.“Everybody already thinks I’ve done the best thing I’ll ever do,” Honnold said in a recent interview as young climbers gawked, pointed and stared at him before a competition at Earth Treks Englewood in Colorado. “So I don’t feel any obligation to top that. Even if I did top it, there would never be a better film about it. It will never be documented in a better way. It’s just not possible to make a better film than that. So it’s like, ‘Cool — a-once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing.’ It’s like, ‘Let’s move on.’”Move on to what? That’s his hang-up.There’s no new endeavour he’s eyeing. Perhaps, at 33, he’s proceeding through life with a little more caution. He’s dating the same person he was in the film — Sanni McCandless — and has a house in Las Vegas.“So far, I haven’t been taking the same kind of risks in climbing, but it has more to do with opportunity,” Honnold said. “I’ve been promoting the film and not out climbing crazy mountains all the time. We’ll see.”In the film, Honnold took an MRI of his brain to see how he responds to fear. Turns out, fear didn’t seem to faze him. Still, there was one poignant scene after he halted an attempt to scale El Capitan, when producer Jimmy Chin commented, “it’s reassuring that Spock has nerves” — an ode to the stoic nature of the Star Trek character.Undeterred, Honnold remained persistent. It’s just one of the takeaways from the documentary — a tunnel vision that drove him and sometimes made him come across as aloof. Especially in his blossoming relationship with McCandless.“People come out of it thinking I’m super cold, but you’ve got to keep it in context. Whereas when we first started dating, the relationship was much less important to me than this climbing goal I’d been holding on to for the last nine years,” Honnold explained. “Everybody comes out of the film taking what they want. They cherry-pick the lesson they want, cherry-pick the personality traits they want. Everybody chooses their own adventure.”Around the climbing community, Honnold remains a polarizing figure. That’s due in part to his free soloing ways, which is when a climber doesn’t use any ropes, harnesses or other protective equipment and is forced to rely on their own strength. He’s got numerous free-soloing firsts under his belt. But nothing quite like scaling El Capitan, a feat he accomplished in just under four hours.For the record, he doesn’t have a death wish. He diligently trained for the danger-filled climb that included sections called Freeblast (precariously smooth), Monster Offwidth (shimmying his way up a vertical crack) and Boulder Problem (executing a karate-kick move to reach a toe hold).“That’s why I spent two years practicing, to make sure I wouldn’t fall off and die,” said Honnold, who has a foundation dedicated to supporting solar energy and serves on the board of a company that operates indoor climbing facilities (El Cap). “If I didn’t care, I would’ve gone the first day and rolled the dice.”Ashima Shiraishi, a teenager who’s become one of the big names in climbing, said she watched the documentary on a plane and felt, well, “terrified.”“Free soloing? I can’t,” said Shiraishi, who figures to be in the medal mix as climbing makes its debut at the Tokyo Olympics next summer. “It’s a different world.”Should anyone want to follow his lead, his advice would be basic: Be careful.“It’s a very long, personal journey,” Honnold said. “If someone wants to spend the time and dedicate themselves to the process, more power to them — as long as they do it slow and carefully.”To promote the film directed by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Chin, Honnold travelled around for months, which meant putting his outdoor climbing pursuits on the backburner. Along the way, he met some big names — Prince William, actor Bradley Cooper — and lost some privacy. He’s constantly recognized on subways, in grocery stores and of course anywhere he climbs.He recently went back to Yosemite, but didn’t dare venture out too much in public because, “I’ve got serious anxiety,” he said.While hiking in the area, Honnold overheard a group in front of him actually discussing the movie. Then, he sped right by them.“They’re like, ‘That’s the guy!’” Honnold recounted. “As I’m hiking by, they’re like, ‘Did you get him on the ‘GoPro?’”That’s just his reality now.So is this: Making the most of his training sessions at climbing gyms.
