Merkel says RussiaUkraine prisoner swap a sign of hope

first_imgBerlin: German Chancellor Angela Merkel Saturday hailed a swap of 70 prisoners between Russia and Ukraine as a “sign of hope” and called for the implementation of a 2015 ceasefire deal that Paris and Berlin helped broker. “This exchange of prisoners between Russia and Ukraine is a sign of hope… it’s worth continuing the hard work to implement the Minsk accord,” Merkel said in a statement put out by her spokesman Steffen Seibert on Twitter. “I am happy for the Ukrainian sailors and Oleg Sentsov who can finally return home,” she said.

Russian coastguards captured 24 Ukrainian sailors off the coast of Crimea in November last year after seizing their three vessels. Moscow had wanted to put them on trial for violating Russia’s maritime borders.last_img read more

Metis Nation can go it alone MNC president vows to push government

first_imgAshley BrandsonAPTN NewsThe Metis National Council (MNC) is encouraging the federal government to continue its work on the Indigenous rights framework agreement that was announced by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Valentine’s Day.“The simple answer is yes, the Metis Nation can go it alone,” President Clement Chartier told those gathered in Winnipeg. “There’s no reason why Canada cannot pass the same legislation and make it Metis nation specific.”According to the government, the framework will “provide clarity and certainty on Canada’s responsibilities toward engaging with Indigenous Peoples.”But while Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett has been travelling the country meeting with Indigenous leaders, many First Nation chiefs and grassroots people want the government to put the framework legislation on hold.A B.C. chief told APTN News that Canada may have already decided to delay tabling legislation before the end of year.“I haven’t been told that it’s not going to proceed to try to meet the deadline for passage before the next election,” Chartier said.Tom Isaac, who was federally appointed by Bennett as the minister’s special representative on reconciliation with Metis said the framework is a unique opportunity for the Metis Nation to have their rights acknowledged by the federal government.“What’s important is, is that the framework that’s being proposed is there’s nothing that hurts, negatively impacts or limits the rights,” said Isaac. “It’s all about acknowledgement and moving forward and that’s what’s critical.”Chartier said he remains optimistic that the framework will proceed for the Metis – but is worried about the timeframe.“If it’s not tabled relatively soon it’s not going to meet the deadline prior to the next election,” he said. “At that time it becomes kind of irrelevant, if it’s going to be dealt with after the election because we would need to wait until the outcome of that election and so gets into power.“If liberals get re-elected the we would continue to press them to move forward on that legislation, if the conservatives form government, I don’t think we’d have much of an opportunity to even have that dialogue.”abrandson@aptn.ca@ashleybrandsonlast_img read more

UN womens rights expert says new Afghan Constitution heralds era of progress

The Afghan Constitution, adopted on Sunday, explicitly guarantees that men and women have equal rights and duties before the law. “This is a significant victory for women and girls in Afghanistan who barely three years ago were completely excluded from all spheres of life and faced systematic violations of their human rights on a daily basis,” said Feride Acar, the Chairperson of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women.By promoting gender equality, the Constitution will serve as a “vital starting point” for the country’s transformation, she said, because it “legitimizes the important role played by women and girls in Afghanistan in reshaping their future and in rebuilding their country.”Afghanistan is a party to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women. Ms. Acar, whose committee monitors compliance with that treaty, pledged today to work for its “full and effective implementation” in Afghanistan.”As we celebrate the dawn of a new era for Afghanistan, I congratulate the Afghan people, and especially its women, for this incredible achievement,” she said.Until the Taliban regime was toppled, Afghan women faced a number of severe restrictions, including prohibitions on schooling and employment. read more

International investment disputes hit record in 2012 – UN report

The report, “Recent Developments in Investor–State Dispute Settlement (ISDS)”, showed that 62 new cases were filed in 2012, of which 68 per cent of respondents were from developing or transition economies.“Recent developments have amplified a number of cross-cutting challenges that are facing the ISDS mechanism, which gives credence to calls for reform of the investment arbitration system,” said James Zhan, Director of UNCTAD’s Division on Investment and Enterprise, which published the report.Foreign investors challenged a broad range of government measures, UNCTAD reported, including revocations of licences, breaches of investment contracts, irregularities in public tenders, changes to domestic regulatory frameworks, withdrawal of previously granted subsidies, direct expropriations of investments and imposition of taxes.Nine decisions in 2012 awarded damages, including the World Bank’s International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), which ordered Ecuador to pay $1.77 billion to Occidental Petroleum Corp as compensation for taking over its assets in 2006. The monetary award was the highest in the history of Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS).In addition, for the first time in treaty-based ISDS proceedings, an arbitral tribunal affirmed its jurisdiction over a counterclaim lodged by a respondent State against the investor.By the end of 2012, the total number of known cases reached 518, and the total number of countries that have responded to one or more ISDS claims increased to 95, according to UNCTAD. The overall number of concluded cases reached 244, out of which approximately 42 per cent were decided in favour of the State and 31 per cent in favour of the investor. Approximately 27 per cent of the cases were settled.“The ISDS mechanism is already a source of considered reflection in numerous bilateral and regional IIA negotiations. However, a multilateral dialogue on ISDS could prove more effective in bringing about a harmonized approach to reform,” Mr. Zhan said. read more

NHS bedblocking rises 42 in a year new figures show

first_imgNHS England has warned the health system is under strain Jonathan Ashworth, shadow health secretary said: “Today’s figures reveal the pressure and strain A&E departments are under across the country. People will be shocked that the A&E target has been missed for sixteen months in a row. It’s simply not good enough.”“This week we have learnt of the intense pressures on our NHS this winter. “Instead of addressing this crisis with a package of urgent support for social care, government ministers suggested downgrading the A&E target – a move which provoked a widespread backlash.”He accused the Government of “shifting the goalposts” instead of tackling a crisis in social care. Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said:  “As we see A&Es full, people waiting hours on the phone to get a GP appointment or on a trolley in a ward, the buck lies with the Prime Minister and this Conservative government. “Theresa May has lost control of the NHS crisis and needs to get a grip.”Instead of briefing against NHS officials and making physical U-turns in the street, this government should make a U-turn in Parliament and stump up the cash our NHS needs. “Only the Liberal Democrats are prepared to make the case that we may need to raise tax to pay for the NHS and social care services patients deserve.”  Cllr Izzi Seccombe, from the Local Government Association said: “Elderly and vulnerable people need to be supported to remain in their homes for as long as possible and receive care in the community, not in a ward. “With social care facing a funding gap of £2.6 billion by 2020, it is vital that the Government properly funds social care if we are to get people out of hospital and safely into the community. Without this, the NHS will continue to suffer.”Earlier, former Tory health secretary Stephen Dorrell hit out at the “unfair” criticism of the boss of NHS England reportedly meted out by Theresa May’s senior aides amid the growing crisis in the health service.NHS chief executive Simon Stevens went against the Prime Minister over the state of NHS funding by telling MPs it is “stretching it” to say it got more money than it asked for.He said an extra £10 billion was being made available to NHS England over the course of six years but overall the health service had “got less” than set out in its five-year plan.The comments contradict those of Mrs May, who has insisted the NHS got all it wanted in the funding settlement. NHS England has warned the health system is under strainCredit:Lynne Cameron/PA Wire It comes as the head of  the NHS became embroiled in a row with the Prime Minister over funding for the health service.Simon Stevens said Theresa May was “stretching it” to say that the NHS had been given more money than it asked for.He also denied her suggestion that the crisis was partly being caused by poor management of hospitals, by saying that hospitals were not “feckless”.No 10 responded angrily – pointing out that Mr Stevens had given a fulsome welcome to a £10bn NHS cash boost when it was awarded and added: “The figures speak for themselves” Bed-blocking has risen more than 40 per cent in a year as hospitals continue to be overwhelmed with people needing care, figures showed on Thursday.New data from November shows a health system under strain as it got ready to enter its busiest time ever over Christmas.It follows warnings from the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of Nursing that the NHS is now experiencing its worst ever winter crisis.The research for England highlights acute problems with delayed discharges – where patients are medically fit to leave hospital but are stuck in beds due to problems arranging care in the community.It follows calls from the head of the NHS for extra funding for social care.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Hospitals report this affects their ability to quickly admit emergency A&E patients, so the NHS is working closely with local councils and community health services to enable older patients to get the support they need after a hospital stay, back at homeMatthew Swindells, NHS England “Hospitals report this affects their ability to quickly admit emergency A&E patients, so the NHS is working closely with local councils and community health services to enable older patients to get the support they need after a hospital stay, back at home.”The figures also show trolley waits of over four hours after a decision has been made to admit the patient totalled 52,769, the second highest figure on record, and 54 per cent higher than November 2015.Trolley waits of over 12 hours totalled 456 – again, the second highest figure on record.This is 16 times higher than the number for November 2015.The proportion of people seen at A&E within four hours in November was 88.4 per cent, against a 95 per cent target. Last November it was 91.3 per cent. November’s figure of 88.4 per cent is the lowest since March 2016, when it was 87.3 per cent.Some 88 per cent of calls to NHS 111 were answered within 60 seconds – down from 90 per cent in November 2015. This impacts on A&E as hospitals struggle to find beds for incoming patients.Days lost to delayed transfers of care totalled 193,680 in November. This is the third highest number on record, and 26 per cent higher than the figure for November 2015.Matthew Swindells, NHS England’s national director for operations and information, said: “This month’s figures show a 42 per cent annual increase in delays in being able to discharge patients as a result of pressures in social care.last_img read more

Marijuana fees generate funds for student travel in Sitka

first_imgStudent activities in Sitka are getting a boost from the marijuana industry. During their meeting last week, the Assembly approved depositing all money generated from state marijuana licensing fees into a specific fund for student travel sponsored by the school district.Listen Now Assemblyman Steven Eisenbeisz believes this could generate $8000 to $10,000, depending on how the burgeoning pot industry takes off. So far, state has awarded licenses to three cultivation facilities and one retail shop. Each state fee costs $5000 and local communities receive half of that.As for student activities in Sitka, the local contribution has been fairly stable – $132,000 this year – and teams and clubs fundraise to make up the rest. With but more students flying to competitions around Southeast, the need is greater. Superintendent Mary Wegner says she appreciates the Assembly’s creativity.“Activities and athletics are a great antidote to smoking marijuana,” Wegner said. “When you’re involved with activities you don’t want to. So it is a very interesting and novel approach, but I appreciate the [Assembly’s] creativity in keeping the students first and foremost in their minds and in their actions.”The idea wasn’t embraced by everyone, though. Aaron Bean, owner of the grow and retail operation Green Leaf Inc., objected to the ordinance, stressing the importance of keeping marijuana out of young hands.“If we’re funding school programs and the kids that are traveling know where these funds come through, I would hate to encourage…it’s not direct advertising, but I feel like it’s priming if that makes sense. in these programs know…I wouldn’t be in favor of that as a business owner,” Bean said.Mim McConnell, who completed her final meeting as Sitka’s Mayor Tuesday night, said that while she understand where Bean was coming from, there is precedent.“To me, it’s kind of like the tobacco tax going to the hospital,” McConnell said. “We don’t give it to the hospital and people thinking, ‘Money going to the hospital? Let’s smoke more.’ So hopefully that’s not what people thing.”The ordinance then passed unanimously, on second and final reading.last_img read more

Comment period extended for draft Donlin reclamation plan

first_imgThe Donlin mine will impact 3,500 acres of wetlands in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. (Katie Basile / KYUK)A state agency is extending the deadline for the proposed Donlin mine’s draft reclamation plans. The project would be one of the biggest gold mines in the world.Listen nowThe Alaska Department of Natural Resources (DNR) says that the public can submit comments until September 6. The agency also extended the deadline for comments on how Donlin plans to pay for the clean-up.Last week, the Yukon-Kuskokwim River Alliance, a local working group which opposes the mine, sent a letter to DNR and the Department of Environmental Conservation saying that there simply wasn’t enough time for the public to weigh in, particularly in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta.It’s the height of the subsistence season, and most people are gathering berries and fishing to stock up for the winter, the letter says, which means that people can’t find the time to read and comment on a 400-page document.The local working group also asked for a public hearing. Faith Martineau, the Executive Director for the permitting process at DNR, says that the agency is considering that request.Meanwhile, the Army Corps of Engineers is on track to roll out its record of decision on the mine next week. The decision will determine how the project moves forward.last_img read more

Texas Environmental Group Says It Will Keep Up The Pressure To Get

Justices say it ran contrary to the state’s law on solid waste disposal.More #whatawaste. @Whataburger please go #foamfree.
