Will discuss Kashmir only with Pak bilaterally

first_imgWashington/Bangkok: Rejecting any mediation by US President Donald Trump on Kashmir, India on Friday made it clear to America that any discussion on the issue if at all warranted, will only be with Pakistan and only bilaterally. The assertion by External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar came hours after President Trump said he would “certainly intervene” on the Kashmir issue if New Delhi and Islamabad wanted him to. Jaishankar who met US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Bangkok on the sidelines of the 9th East Asia Summit Foreign Ministers meeting conveyed India’s stand that any discussion on the Kashmir issue would be between India and Pakistan only.

UNICEF rushes emergency relief to quake victims in China

18 May 2008The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is rushing to send emergency relief supplies to the centre of China’s Sichuan province, the area most devastated by last Monday’s catastrophic earthquake. The first aid, comprising 1,000 tents, 15,000 blankets and 60,000 school kits, are expected to arrive in quake-affected areas over the next 24 hours, UNICEF reported today from Beijing, with medicines, water, sanitation materials and health equipment to follow soon after.Yin Yin Nwe, UNICEF Representative in China, said the agency staff were doing their utmost to help Chinese authorities to care for and protect children affected by the massive temblor.“It is truly encouraging to see how the whole country has rallied in support of the Government’s relief response,” Dr. Nwe said, adding that the relief situation had become critical.“We need to move as fast as possible, with no delays, to speed life-saving medicines, vaccinations, water purification tablets, oral rehydration salts, obstetrics and surgical kits, water containers and the like. Families trying to cope will require basic materials like collapsible water containers, soap [and] tarpaulins to survive after losing everything.”The UN World Health Organization (WHO) has stressed that preventing outbreaks of communicable diseases has become the key public health issue, and it is working closely with the national health ministry to offer aid, supplies and guidance.“The main needs now are water, sanitation and food,” said WHO’s Representative to China, Hans Troedsson. “Ensuring supply of food and safe drinking water and trying to restore good sanitation are critical because these are the basic transmission routes for communicable diseases.”Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced in a statement on Friday that up to $7 million will be released from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to support UN relief efforts.State media reports that the official death toll has risen to 28,881, with some 14,000 others still trapped under debris and rubble and more than 198,000 others injured. An estimated 3.3 million homes have been destroyed and 15.6 million others have been partially damaged.The quake measured 7.8 on the Richter scale when it struck south-western China on Monday afternoon, just before 2:30 local time. At least 4,400 aftershocks have since been recorded, including 146 measuring 4 or higher on the Richter scale. read more

UN sounds alarm on funding gap as rainy season gets under way

To date, only one third of the $550 million regional appeal, launched six months ago by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), has been financed.OCHA spokesperson Elisabeth Byrs stressed at a press conference in Geneva today that it is urgent that more funds be made available to help those in need in West Africa.To respond to the paucity of resources, the UN Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) has earmarked nearly $20 million over the past three months for Niger, the Central African Republic (CAR) and Chad. Most of those funds went to Niger, which is home to over 7 million hungry people and in the throes of a serious food, nutrition and pastoral crisis.According to data released by Niger’s Government last month, the global acute malnutrition rate in the country has reached nearly 17 per cent for children under the age of five, which is far above the 15 per cent warning threshold and the 12.3 per cent rate estimated last year.Since the start of this year, the Fund has allocated more than $40 million to Niger, CAR, Chad, Guinea, Mali and Senegal.CERF was set up in 2006 to make funding for humanitarian emergencies faster and more equitable. Since then, more than 115 Member States and several private sector donors have contributed nearly $2 billion to the fund, which is managed by OCHA. 9 July 2010The rainy season is under way in West Africa and has already caused deadly flooding, but no aid has come in to help the region’s countries, sparking the concern of the United Nations humanitarian arm. read more

Cap on vehicle imports

As a consequence, there has been a growing possibility that the importation of motor vehicles into Sri Lanka could accelerate in the period ahead. The Central Bank believes that this trend should not be allowed to continue without a suitable response. With the intention of discouraging accelerated imports of specific vehicles over the next few months, the Central Bank has decided to impose a 100 per cent margin deposit on such imports.The Central Bank has noted that, during the year 2013, the currencies of several trading partner economies have sharply depreciated against the Sri Lankan rupee. In that background, in order to deal with the emerging risk, the Monetary Board at its meeting held on 27th August 2013 decided to impose a 100 per cent margin deposit requirement against the Letters of Credit opened with the commercial banks for the import of motor vehicles, other than buses, ambulances, lorries and trucks. Accordingly, Letters of Credit for the importation of specified vehicle categories could be done only with a minimum cash margin of 100 per cent, with immediate effect.The Monetary Board of the bank has also decided to review the imposition of this margin after a period of six months.

Road safety experts seek to address rising toll of traffic deaths –

“This is the first gathering of many of the most influential players in the road safety field, from victim associations, foundations, the automobile industry, and ministries of transport and health,” said Dr. Lee Jong-wook, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva. “Combining such diverse expertise in road safety and taking action will help to reverse the unnecessary death toll on the world’s roads.” More than 1.2 million people are killed each year on the road, while millions more are injured or disabled. In some low- and middle-income countries, road crash victims occupy up to 10 per cent of hospital beds. Deaths from all types of injuries are projected to rise from 5.1 million in 1990 to 8.4 million in 2020 – with road traffic injuries as a major cause for this increase. UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan noted in a recent report that “improving road safety requires strong political will on the part of Governments,” adding that countries should also “aim to ensure that sufficient resources are available, commensurate with the size of the road safety problem in their country.” Globally, estimates suggest that the economic costs of road traffic injuries amount to $518 billion per year, WHO said. In developing countries, the costs are estimated to be $100 billion, twice the annual amount of development assistance to developing countries. To mitigate this global public health and development crisis, Mr Annan recommended that countries develop and implement national strategies on road traffic injury prevention and appropriate action plans. Today’s initiative will seek to advocate policies and programmes that address speed reduction and alcohol consumption, re-enforce the use of seat belts, helmets and child restraints, improve emergency response systems, promote safe vehicle design and introduce the implementation of road safety standards. read more

Moped gang armed with zombiestyle knife jump on car bonnet after stealing

One of the robbers kicking the windscreen Tim Loughton, a Tory MP and member of the home affairs select committee, said: “There is a role for intelligence-led policing here. If gangs are targeting Range Rover-driving parents going to private schools, there need to be sting operations”.Mr Khan told The Telegraph: “Moped crime is frightening and intimidating and will not be tolerated on the streets of London – but tackling the rise in crime across Britain is getting increasingly difficult as a result of huge government cuts to the police and preventative services.“The Home Secretary must walk the walk and give our police the funding they desperately need to do their job.”A senior Tory MP also found himself caught up in the crime wave this week as he stepped in to tackle a man who was racially abusing a shopkeeper. Moped crime is “out of control” and police are not doing enough to tackle it, senior Conservatives have warned, as footage emerged showing armed gangs targeting drivers stationary in traffic.Stephen Greenhalgh, the former deputy mayor for crime in London, said criminals were targeting parents picking up their children from private schools and officers were failing to stop them.It comes days after Michael McIntyre, the comedian, had his watch stolen while in his Range Rover with his son.Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, told the Home Secretary to “walk the walk” and hand over extra cash as a police video showed men being robbed of their watches while waiting at a junction in London.The footage, filmed on a dash-cam, shows four men pull up alongside the car on two scooters before threatening the occupants with a hammer and a knife, stealing their watches and stamping on their windscreen.​ It happened on Saturday evening in north London while the car was stationary in traffic on the North Circular Road in Finchley.McIntyre had his watch stolen by a gang armed with a hammer while he was picking his son up from school in the same area.On both occasions, the watches stolen were worth thousands of pounds, suggesting gangs may be deliberately following members of the public. Experts warned the gangs were targeting parents as they picked up their children from private schools in the capital, and called for police to be stationed at known hotspots. Mr Mercer told the Daily Mail: “I simply did what anyone else would do when faced by a man throwing bottles and being racist towards a shopkeeper earning a living.”It also emerged on Thursday that a moped gang used “drill” music to boast about stabbing their rivals. A court heard Micah Bedeau, 19, Yonas Girma, 21, Isaac Marshall, 18, and two 17-year-olds, who cannot be identified, had an array of weapons when they were arrested in Notting Hill, west London.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

A robber approaching the car A robber near the Mazda during the attack Mr Greenhalgh, who was the deputy mayor for policing and crime under Boris Johnson, told The Telegraph: “This is organised moped crime. It is happening in a small number of streets but I don’t get any sense of a plan or priority given to tackling it by the police. It is out of control. “These gangs are targeting drop-offs at wealthy private schools, so police need to be there and be visible to stop this.” A robber approaching the car They were planning an attack on a rival gang from Shepherd’s Bush in retaliation for an incident involving the grandmother of two of their members.A YouTube video had reportedly been posted showing a Snapchat broadcast of the grandmother being harassed, abused and threatened by members of the rival gang.Detective Superintendent Adam Lowe said: “The lyrics referenced several real and often violent events.“Their aim was purely to glorify gangs and violence.” read more

Thailand gets ready for Songkran Festival

For tourists, the event offers a chance to enjoy a huge celebration where water parties break out in the streets of Thailand’s towns and villages. For locals, it is a time when they can spend precious time with families and visit the temples to observe ancient rites and make merit.

From the water sports to the events and contests to the religious ceremonies, every city has its own share of fun-filled experience and food and drinks to offer to you. On your visit in this time of the year, be ready to be soaked and hogging on food all through the three days of Songkran. Do not be surprised seeing the activities beginning a day or two before Songkran. Do not miss out on the experience of a Thai-style Holi and Thai street food this April.Apart from the water festivities, the major cities of Thailand have their own ways of adding to the liveliness of the celebrations. Bangkok brings its revelry to the streets where locals and tourists all come together for the merrymaking.

These activities are followed by religious ceremonies.The Thais begin their celebrations with the blessing and cleansing ceremonies by pouring herbed water on Buddha statues at the temples. As a tourist, you must visit the major monasteries and temples when Thailand, especially during Songkran. The visit to the temple is followed by paying respect to their elders in the format of their family traditions. In some places, people add herbs to the water that they play with, as a sign of purity.

Gooding Company the official auction house for

first_imgGooding & Company, the official auction house for the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, is thrilled to announce the sale of an important piece of Bugatti history – the 1938 Bugatti Type 57C Coupe – for its annual Pebble Beach auctions, to be held August 15 – 16, 2009. The Type 57 is the quintessential Bugatti road car and this specific car is considered to be one of the most historically significant examples of its kind.“This year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will be honoring the Bugatti marque and Gooding & Company is delighted to offer, at no reserve, one of the most spectacular Bugattis ever built,” said David Gooding, founder and president of Gooding & Company. “This special works-maintained car will undoubtedly capture a great deal of attention during the week and will draw connoisseurs worldwide to our auction.”It is believed that Bugatti factory employees originally assembled this 1938 Bugatti Type 57C Coupe as a gift for Le Patron, Ettore Bugatti. Deemed as one of its most cherished automobiles, the Bugatti factory went to great lengths to protect this precious vehicle during World War II. After Ettore Bugatti’s death in 1947, the car continued to be maintained and stored at the Bugatti workshop in Molsheim, France, where it received factory upgrades as developments progressed. These upgrades included tailored interior accessories, a unique engine and transmission combination and other subtle technical improvements making it the most advanced example of the legendary Type 57. Additionally, the car’s one-off coach-work is believed to be one of the last designs penned by Ettore Bugatti’s son, Jean Bugatti before his death.Since leaving the Bugatti factory in the late 1950s, Chassis 57335 has had only a few protective caretakers and remains one of the most correct and original Bugattis in existence. The more recent owners of the car have preserved Ettore Bugatti’s intrinsic connection with this automobile. Used only sparingly, the car is remarkably authentic and the interior evokes the presence of the legendary Ettore Bugatti himself. This car possesses many one-off features including the appearance of the famed EB logo engraved on the wheel hubs, in cloisonné on the rear bumper and in enamel on the steering wheel. Every detail on the spectacular automobile reflects the artistry of the Bugatti marque and it possesses a tangible link to some of the most important innovators in automotive history.www.goodingco.comlast_img read more
