Attack on Afghan aid workers prompts UN call for better security

The three killed in yesterday’s attack in Jawzjan province in northern Afghanistan worked for Development and Humanitarian Services in Afghanistan (DHSA), which provides shelter for returnees and is a partner organization of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).A statement issued by the UN in Afghanistan noted that this is at least the fourth security incident targeting humanitarian workers in the country in the past two weeks. “This latest attack is one more example of the unacceptable toll that the conflict in Afghanistan is taking on civilians, and in particular on humanitarian workers whose sole objective is the delivery of relief assistance to people in distress,” the statement said.The UN added that the continuing attacks and threats have forced aid agencies to restrict their operations and thus adversely affecting their ability to reach those in need.“All parties to the conflict should honour their obligations under international humanitarian law to ensure that this horrible incident is not repeated,” the world body stated.This was the second incident involving UNHCR in Afghanistan in the past couple of days.On Monday, cars carrying three agency staff members and one employee of the UN World Food Programme (WFP) were overtaking a military convoy when one of the military vehicles exploded. Although further details on the incident, which occurred in the country’s east, are not currently available, none of the UN staff members were injured. 24 June 2009The acting United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator in Afghanistan, Tekeste Tekie, today called for better security for aid workers, after three national staff of a local non-governmental organization (NGO) were killed when the vehicle they were travelling in was destroyed by a roadside bomb. read more

Foreign buyers tax and other measures under review BC housing minister says

VANCOUVER — The British Columbia government is reviewing the foreign buyers’ tax in the Vancouver area and the interest-free loan program to first-time homebuyers to determine whether they have helped improve affordability, the province’s new housing minister says.In an interview Monday, Selina Robinson said she and provincial Finance Minister Carole James will go over real estate transaction data in an effort to decide whether such measures should be kept, revised or scrapped altogether.“I don’t know that we have any plans to eliminate it,” Robinson said of the 15 per cent foreign buyers’ levy, nearly a year after the previous Liberal government introduced it for Metro Vancouver.“There’s certainly enough data that would help us to understand its value, and so, we have to look at that data.”Robinson said she understands the tax had some impact early on, but that is starting to slip away.From June 10 until Aug. 1, 2016 — one day before the tax took effect — 13.2 per cent of all property transfer transactions in Metro Vancouver involved foreign buyers, according to data from the B.C. Finance Ministry. From Aug. 2, 2016, until the end of last year, that figure fell to 2.6 per cent.In the months after the tax, there were signs of cooling in Vancouver’s housing market, with the number of transactions falling. However, there have been signs that the market may be rebounding, as prices continue to creep up.The Multiple Listing Service composite benchmark price for all properties in Metro Vancouver was $998,700 in June, an increase of 7.9 per cent from the same month last year, according to the Greater Vancouver Real Estate Board.Tsur Somerville, the director of the University of British Columbia Centre for Urban Economics and Real Estate, said the tax may have dampened foreign interest in a city where housing prices are among the most expensive in North America.But another possibility is that some foreign buyers are not self-identifying as such or have shifted to purchasing properties, such as presale condominiums, that aren’t covered by the tax, he said.The foreign buyers’ tax was a contentious move that angered some groups and prompted a class-action lawsuit that is now awaiting a certification hearing in early November.The claim’s lead plaintiff is Jing Li, a Chinese citizen residing in Burnaby, B.C. Li found the $559,000 property she purchased in July would suddenly be subject to an additional $83,850 in taxes because the deal was to close after Aug. 2.The proposed lawsuit alleges the tax is unconstitutional. But in the province’s statement of defence filed in May, the government denies the tax is unconstitutional or violates the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom. The allegations have not been tested in court.Robinson was unable to comment on whether her party would fight the action in court.Before they won the May election, the NDP promised to bring in an annual two per cent tax on vacant properties, but Robinson said that too is under review.Andrey Pavlov, a professor who specializes in real estate finance at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C., said he hopes the government implements policies that would ease development restrictions to increase housing supply.“Unless we can increase supply, we can tax people at any rate we want,” Pavlov said.“It’s not going to make any difference because we just don’t have enough units.”Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter. read more

Canada tells Sri Lanka to put forward viable political solution

“We strongly believe that Sri Lanka’s commitments on reconciliation will usher in peace, security and stability for all Sri Lankans. Canada remains committed to working with the Government of Sri Lanka toward building this lasting peace, reconciliation and prosperity in Sri Lanka,” she said. She also said that the Canada – Sri Lanka trade relationship is going strong. Trade volumes have grown by 25% in 2015 and she looks forward to continued growth and enhance trade ties, particularly in priority sectors, such as agrifood, infrastructure, aviation, clean tech and education.“With just a year remaining for 150th anniversary celebrations, let’s take some time today, and in the next few months in the lead up to 2017, to truly reflect on how far we have come as a country and how far Canada and Sri Lanka have come in our bilateral relationship. Canada Day is a day to savour and celebrate the achievements of Canada and its people, and share the celebration with our partners and friends around the world,” she added.She says Canada and Sri Lanka have a long-standing bilateral partnership, a shared commitment to fundamental values and deep people-to-people ties and Canadian interest in Sri Lanka is driven by a foreign policy commitment to the principles of freedom of expression, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law. (Colombo Gazette) Canada says it continues to encourage the Sri Lankan Government’s efforts to advance reconciliation and accountability in the country as well as present a viable political solution in order to satisfy the legitimate aspirations of all Sri Lankan citizens, regardless of language, religion, or ethnicity.The views were expressed by Shelley Whiting, the High Commissioner of Canada to Sri Lanka and the Maldives in a message to mark Canada Day which falls today. The High Commissioner said Canada has welcomed the Sri Lankan Government’s commitments to reconciliation and the government’s efforts to mend relations among communities so that all Sri Lankans can live in peace and dignity, free from discrimination based on ethnic, religious or linguistic identities. She also said that in Sri Lanka, Canada has been a longstanding development partner and the assistance continues to focus on sustainable economic growth, improving skills for employment and livelihoods, and on advancing democracy through the promotion of language rights.“Assistance has also been provided for de-mining in support of post-war reconciliation efforts by the Sri Lankan government. Our Canadian volunteer program enhances technical cooperation, fosters friendship and interactions between communities,” she said. read more

UN Rwanda tribunal says efficiency was sole motive in staffing decisions

“There is no basis to attack the Tribunal for racism. It is absolutely ridiculous,” spokeswoman Florence Hartmann told reporters in The Hague. “The Prosecutor did not renew some contracts and we were accused of racism, but the decision was only on the basis of efficiency.”According to Ms. Hartmann, the first person who did not have his contract renewed was an American of European descent. “These people were given a chance to start to work to change their attitudes and did not, and are now gone,” she said, adding that other staff were changed to different positions because “they were good lawyers but not proactive enough in court.”Ms. Hartmann said that ICTR Prosecutor Carla del Ponte would continue to hire new people, including Africans, on the basis of competence. “May Africans work at the Tribunal,” she said. “This is important because they know the environment and want to take part in international justice […] to make sure that genocide such as that which occurred in Rwanda in 1994 does not occur again in the continent of Africa or anywhere else.”The non-renewal of the staff’s contracts falls within a general reorganization of the ICTR – a process that began last year with the investigation teams in Kigali, Rwanda, and is now continuing with the trial teams based in Arusha, Tanzania, the spokeswoman said. read more

Rio Tinto costcutting boosts profits especially at aluminum division

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Rio Tinto cost-cutting boosts profits especially at aluminum division by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 13, 2014 3:04 pm MDT MONTREAL – Rio Tinto is raising its annual dividend by 15 per cent after adjusted profits increased last year to US$10.2 billion on a strong turnaround in its Canadian-based aluminum division.The world’s second-largest miner said Thursday that its underlying earnings increased 10 per cent to US$5.53 cents per share on record production in some metals as well as cost reductions and layoffs across its operations.“These strong results reflect the progress we are making to transform our business and demonstrate how we are fulfilling our commitments to improve performance, strengthen the balance sheet and deliver greater value for shareholders,” said CEO Sam Walsh.The US$1.92 per share dividend reflects the company’s “confidence in the business and its attractive prospects,” Walsh added.Net profits, including one-time items, swung to US$3.66 billion from a US$3 billion loss in 2012.Total revenues were US$51.2 billion, up from US$50.9 billion in 2012, with 35 per cent of sales going to China.The bulk of Rio Tinto’s profits were generated from its iron ore operations in Australia. The Iron Ore Company of Canada contributed US$305 million on US$2.26 billion of revenues, up from US$230 million on US$1.97 billion of revenues in 2012.The Montreal-headquartered aluminum division’s earnings increased nearly 10-fold to US$557 million despite a nine per cent decrease in aluminum prices to US$1,845 per tonne. Revenues increased to US$12.46 billion.The dramatic improvement in the aluminum operations comes a year after an US$11-billion writedown and weak performance caused Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO) to report its first annual loss. In 2011, the aluminum division earned US$439 million.Rio attributed the improvement in aluminum to cost cutting, increased volumes and higher market premiums. In 2013, it closed, curtailed or sold six aluminum assets, including the suspension of production at the Gove alumina refinery in Australia to focus on bauxite operations.Global aluminum production increased seven per cent in 2013, partly as a result of a ramp up of its AP60 smelter in Quebec as well as the fact that production was hampered in 2012 by lockout of workers at its operations in Alma, Que., in the first half of the year.North American aluminum production in Quebec and British Columbia earned $161 million, up from $43 million in 2012. The Pacific assets swung to a $126-million profit after losing $92 million a year ago.Capital expenditures in the aluminum division decreased 19 per cent last year to US$2.23 billion and included money earmarked for the modernization of a smelter in Kitimat, B.C.Overall, capital expenditures were reduced by 26 per cent to US$12.9 billion and are expected to fall to US$11 billion this year and to around US$8 billion in 2015.The results beat analyst forecasts by 3.5 per cent primarily due to the performance of iron ore, aluminum, energy, diamond and mineral units.Peter Mallin-Jones of Canaccord Genuity called the results “solid.”“Operationally, they were broadly in line with our estimates, with the aluminium unit in particular performing ahead of our expectations, reflecting the cost-cutting efforts undertaken in that unit in recent years,” he wrote in a report.Net debt was cut to US$18.1 billion, US$1.1 billion lower than a year ago.Rio Tinto’s global workforce was cut by 4,000 while another 3,300 positions left the company with the sale of businesses.Its diamonds business earned US$53 million, up from a loss of US$25 million in 2012 as production in at Diavik in the Northwest Territories and in Australia increased 22 per cent to 16 million carats.On the New York Stock Exchange, Rio Tinto’s shares closed up 18 cents at $58.17 in Thursday trading.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter read more

January is the best time to buy a house

Une journée sans sel ajouté dans les cantines

first_imgUne journée “sans sel ajouté” dans les cantinesFrance – Les tables de 3.000 restaurants d’entreprises et d’administrations sont privées de sel ce jeudi 16 septembre. Le Syndicat national de la restauration collective (SNRC) a en effet lancé sa première “journée sans sel ajouté”, pour sensibiliser aux méfaits du sel sur la santé.Si les milliers de repas concernés par cette opération ont été salés lors de leur préparation, c’est sur les tables des cantines que le sel est interdit pendant toute une journée. A la place de la salière, les convives ont trouvé une documentation sur les méfaits du sel. À lire aussiBaccalauréat, l’alimentation à la rescousse !C’est d’abord contre un très mauvais réflexe que se bat le SNRC. “Le plus souvent, l’ajout de sel n’est pas lié au goût du plat mais à un réflexe, et nous voulons sensibiliser les convives à ces mauvaises pratiques” souligne Nicolas Bailleux, président de la commission nutrition du syndicat. La surconsommation de sel peut entraîner une augmentation de la pression artérielle et à terme, des problèmes cardiovasculaires. Selon l’Agence de la sécurité sanitaire des aliments (Anses), quatre grammes de sel seulement sont suffisants pour combler les besoins quotidiens d’un adulte. Mais alors que l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) a fixé à cinq grammes par jour la consommation maximale de cet ingrédient à la fois indispensable et dangereux pour la santé, la consommation quotidienne des adultes français est de 8 grammes par jour environ, sans compter le sel ajouté à table.Le SNRC entend reconduire chaque année cette journée sans sel ajouté. Une campagne qui devrait être étendue aux restaurants scolaires dès l’année prochaine. Le 16 septembre 2010 à 16:06 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Utah Must Cover 475K in Legal Fees After Losing Deadpool Case

first_img If you mess with Deadpool, you get the horns.Or, in this case, a massive fine.A federal judge on Wednesday ordered Utah to pay nearly half a million dollars in legal fees after losing a court case involving a movie theater that served alcohol during screenings of the 2016 superhero flick.At the time, it was a violation of state law to offer booze during movies that include full-frontal nudity and simulated sex. (Because, according to the predominantly Mormon state, alcohol and intercourse make for an “explosive combination.”)The law, however, was so vague “it would apply to Michelangelo’s ‘David,’” former Salt Lake City mayor Rocky Anderson argued, as reported by the Associated Press.Still, simply fulfilling its civic duty, the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control threatened to tax Brewvies Cinema Pub up to $25,000 following screenings of the R-rated X-Men spinoff.Authorities were allegedly concerned about a suggestive end-credits scene involving a cartoon unicorn. (A scene most audiences probably wouldn’t have even stuck around to watch.)So, the theater—previously fined for showing other racy features like Magic Mike XXL—sued the conservative state, and won.In 2017, U.S. District Court Judge David Nuffer found that the law was in violation of the First Amendment (freedom of drunken speech?) and should be dismissed.Now, more than a year later, Nuffer ruled that Brewvies shouldn’t have to pay legal fees for the case; instead, the state must reimburse $474,455.22 to the cinema’s legal team.“The political judgment of the state that it will enact a statute contrary to existing law and risk payment of legal fees is a legitimate choice, but it has consequences,” Nuffer wrote in his judgment, as reported by the Associated Press.According to the Salt Lake Tribune, most of the money will be donated to the DKT Liberty Project in Washington, D.C., which helped with the suit.Neither Brewvies or the Utah Attorney General immediately responded to Geek’s request for comment.Utah is one of 17 alcoholic beverage control territories that have state monopoly over the wholesaling or retailing of beer, wine, and distilled spirits.Last month, the Deadpool and Friends’ Believe in Your Selfie Museum popped up in New York City, offering fans several photo ops.

Khaalis Rolle Named MD of New Sterling Company

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, December 4, 2017 – Nassau – Leading real estate development financing firm Sterling Global Financial announced today it is set to launch a new advisory arm, adding a service the firm’s chairman said would bolster its strategic growth with its ability to assist clients with core services including structure, management, banking, financing, and operations.The new company, Sterling Global Advisors Ltd., will be headed by former Bahamas Minister of Investments Khaalis Rolle, a businessman and two-term chairman of the Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers’ Confederation, and follows on the heels of Sterling’s launch last year of Sterling Bank & Trust (Bahamas) Ltd.“The new advisory firm will allow the firm to consolidate and provide a more strategic focus on a component of its business which was previously viewed as value-added for existing clients,” said Sterling Chairman David Kosoy.“Sterling Global Financial has largely built its reputation and singular positioning by responding to needs for financing ranging from high end homes, commercial shopping centers, luxury condo developments, private islands and resort developments,” said Mr. Rolle, who currently serves as Sterling’s Senior Executive Vice President, and will become Managing Director of Sterling Global Advisors.“The creation of Sterling Global Advisors expands the role we serve with clients and investors by providing guidance, direction and, in some cases, operations management skills. This will allow us to take on new roles that we have the skill sets for, including advising on private placement offerings, consulting and advising governments and quasi-government entities and for-profit and not-for-profit institutions.   This will strengthen Sterling in important ways by creating a sustainable path for our continued growth through the expansion of our relationship with new and existing clients in The Bahamas, North America and beyond.”Many of the projects the firm finances or assists with financing are in The Bahamas and include ONE Cable Beach, THIRTY SIX on Paradise Island, Courtyard by Marriott in downtown Nassau, Ocean Terraces, West Bay Street, Matt Lowe’s Cay, Abaco and Sky Beach Estates, Eleuthera.   It is also funding a share of the land acquisition for a major redevelopment of an iconic neighbourhood in South Boston and is participating in a project in Ireland. In the past year, it upgraded and sold a large shopping center in central Florida.“We have been growing slowly, steadily since our founding a decade ago,” said Sterling Global Financial Chairman David Kosoy, who, though holding an advanced degree in law, has spent his life in real estate funding and development.   “Launching Sterling Global Advisors strengthens our growth potential and provides an enhanced and important role in key projects.   We are taking this strategic step now to further position Sterling to take advantage of the tremendous economic opportunities across our various business sectors.   We could not find a better person to head Sterling Global Advisors than Khaalis Rolle.”Mr. Rolle has served as Senior Executive Vice President of Sterling Global Financial since June 1, 2017.The chairman also revealed that Sterling will be making additional major announcements regarding what he termed “exciting new projects, initiatives and partnerships consistent with our medium to long term growth strategy.”The company with headquarters on East Bay Street, Nassau, has some US$9 billion under administration or asset management.   In 2016, it opened Sterling Bank & Trust (Bahamas) Ltd. and it operates one of the oldest trust companies in Cayman with worldwide clients.   It has earned numerous awards for investment returns and security of investments.Press Release: DPA News Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Total pay falls by 04 in real terms

Total pay falls by 04 in real terms

first_imgTotal pay for employees in Great Britain, including bonuses, fell by 0.4% in real terms between May-July 2016 and May-July 2017, according to research by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).Its UK labour market: September 2017 report also found that regular pay, excluding bonus payments, fell by 0.4% in real terms, which have been adjusted for consumer price inflation, between May-July 2016 and May-July 2017.In nominal terms that are not adjusted for consumer price inflation, both total pay and regular pay increased by 2.1% between May-July 2016 and May-July 2017, which is the same growth rate as between April-June 2016 and April-June 2017.Average total pay, including bonuses, was £505 a week in nominal terms before tax and other deductions from pay for employees in Great Britain in July 2017. This compares to £498 a week in July 2016. Average regular pay, excluding bonuses, was £474 a week in July 2017, compared to £465 a week in July 2016.In real terms, average total pay for employees in Great Britain was £487 a week in July 2017, before tax and other deductions from pay. Average regular pay in real terms, excluding bonus payments, was £458 a week in July 2017, before tax and other deductions from pay.Average total pay for employees in Great Britain, in nominal terms, increased by 34.1% between January 2005 and July 2017, rising from £376 a week to £505 a week. Over the same time period, the Consumer Prices Index, including owner occupiers’ housing costs (CPIH), increased by 32.2%.Ian Brinkley, acting chief economist at the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD), said: “The ongoing fall in real wages continues to undermine what is a very positive picture on employment. The combination of lagging pay rises and ever increasing levels of inflation will leave many workers feeling the squeeze again. Given there is little prospect of pay picking up in the near future, people will be forced to tighten their belts well into the Christmas period, putting additional pressure on already tight pay packets. In order to boost pay, the government needs to place a much stronger focus on boosting workplace productivity in their industrial strategy.”Ben Brettell, senior economist at Hargreaves Lansdown, added: “Good news and bad news from the UK labour market today, with figures showing the jobless rate falling to a fresh 42-year low of 4.3% in the three months to July. The employment rate was 75.3%, the highest since comparable records began in 1971.“As we have come to expect with this monthly data, however, there was a cloud to accompany the silver lining in the form of disappointing wage growth numbers. Economists had expected average pay growth including bonuses to tick upwards to 2.3%, but in the event the number was unchanged from a month earlier at 2.1%.”last_img read more

Artificial Intelligence Now Has a Voice But Security Challenges Loom

first_img Entrepreneur is on the ground at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. Check back for highlights from the event as well as insights from thought leaders and innovators. Amazon’s Alexa, which provides an easy way to play music, turn on a light or order toiletries, is one of the first steps to artificial intelligence that can greatly benefit us in our day-to-day lives. But while Alexa may be a standout in AI, the technology isn’t alone. Just this year, Google’s AlphaGo made history by defeating a master human player at the ancient game of Go, and Mark Zuckerberg unveiled his AI home assistant, Jarvis. However, the world of AI is still very new, with a lot of questions, concerns and unknowns remaining.To get more insights into the AI field and where it is heading next, we reached out to Alex Capecelatro, founder and CEO of, which created a voice activated home-automation system. He will discuss AI during a panel discussion at CES.Related: Mark Zuckerberg Introduces His Virtual Butler ‘Jarvis’His answers have been edited for length and clarity.What’s surprised you in the past year in the artificial intelligence field?In terms of AI and the Internet of Things (IoT), we saw a massive adoption of personal assistants in the form of Amazon Echo and Google Home. Microsoft recently announced its hardware component for Cortana, and we expect to see Apple getting into this space as well. None of this technology would be possible without really accurate automatic speech recognition and sophisticated natural language processing. That said, the technology wouldn’t matter if not for the massive adoption we’ve seen.Personally, I’ve been surprised at how quickly consumers are adopting to this technology, but also surprised at how nascent the products tend to be.We focus on the smart home, which is a massive opportunity and one that is growing quickly, yet the number of connected devices in an average household is still low and therefore an AI for the home is only as powerful as those devices are distributed.There’s also very little “learning” in the current marketplace. My company,, and others are working to change this, but the distinction between human-like and conscious is important and we’re nowhere near conscious computing.Related: How to Create a Facebook Messenger Chatbot For Free Without CodingWhat were the biggest trends? What do you anticipate for the next year?Natural language processing for voice control and assistants has made the biggest impact this year. The necessary components — high word accuracy, fast networks, cloud computing — have finally progressed enough to come together to deliver a great user experience.Related: 4 AI Technologies Impacting Business Operations Right NowOther technologies such as virtual reality, like Oculus, and augmented reality have started to take shape to get people excited about what’s to come.The rise of IoT in the home is nearly exponential, and we expect this to cause even more opportunities at the intersection of AI, machine learning and the physical set of devices we interact with.From a voice perspective, we expect to see more options for a home AI assistant. We already have Amazon and Google, but Microsoft is working on something and Apple has been rumored as well. There may also be AI agnostic microphones — mics that let you choose whichever AI you like (Alexa, Siri, Google, Cortana, etc.) — to give consumers options. All this will help to advance the AI technology, enabling further options and functionality across applications.Related: Top 10 Best Chatbot Platform Tools to Build Chatbots for Your BusinessWhat challenges will the industry face?As mass adoption grows, there will be security challenges. What if your window is open and someone outside yells at Alexa to unlock the door? How do we stop hackers from taking control of connected devices?There’s also a huge interoperability challenge in getting an operating system like to easily speak to everything around it. That said, a number of large companies and numerous startups alike are working on these challenges with some pretty innovative solutions.How will it meet those challenges?We will see third-party offerings step up to fill the gap, including software, services and a combination of the two. Security experts are helping to ensure a reliable and safe infrastructure. We believe locally hosted devices will challenge the cloud for the more secure applications where privacy is a concern, and hopefully some standard protocols will emerge to streamline the various communication channels currently diluting the space.How do you convince people more advanced AI is a good thing?To a certain extent, more intelligence is inevitable, and it’s only a matter of figuring out how to accept and benefit from it. For example, Google anonymously monitors your email in order to deliver targeted ads. While this sounds like a huge invasion of privacy, and it probably is, it also has the potential of helping you remember an important birthday and deliver the perfect gift.Related: Pretty Soon, Chatbots Will Be Able to Understand How You’re FeelingIn terms of what we’re doing with, more advanced robotics, AI and connected devices will improve your quality of life, save energy and money, add a layer of privacy and protection (never leave a garage door open again) and help create wonderful environments with the right lighting and music to set the mood.Anything else you would like to share about the future of AI?Anyone who’s heard me speak this year has heard this quote: We tend to overestimate technological innovation in the next three years, largely due to consumer adoption, regulation and economies of scale, but we grossly underestimate what will happen in the next 10. In other words, expect the next few years to look surprisingly similar to what we see today, but as we approach 2025, the concepts behind autonomous driving, augmented reality, artificial intelligence and the smart home will seem like common sense.

One possible explanation for that is that Mozilla integrated storage viewing in the Firefox Developer Tools. A core difference is that you can only view the storage of the active website using the developer tools while Web Storage Viewer provided a view for all of them in its interface.Tap on F12 to open the Firefox Developer Tools and switch to the Storage tab to inspect used storage by the active site. EndWeb Storage ViewerThe free add-on Web Storage Viewer changes that. It adds a new button to the privacy page of the Firefox options that, when activated, opens the list of sites that used Web Storage to store data on the local system.Do the following to display the list of permanently stored data bits by sites in Firefox:Install the Web Storage Viewer extension. You find the link in the summary box below this review.Load about:preferences#privacy afterwards to display Firefox’s privacy preferences.Locate the new Show Web Storage button there, and click on it.All web storage items are displayed in an overlay on the screen afterwards.  The list is sorted by site, with each site grouped in its own folder for easier access.A click opens the list of items that the site stored on the local computer. Some sites may use local storage to save user account information, game saves, configuration preferences and other relevant data that is beneficial to the user. Others may use local storage however for tracking purposes.A tap on the Delete-key on the keyboard removes the selected item from Firefox. You may remove individual items, e.g. a particular entry stored by a site, or all bits of data that a site stored on the local system.You may furthermore click on remove all at the button to clear all Web Storage items in one go. The method won’t touch other history related information like the browsing history.The Web Storage Viewer interface ships with a search at the top. This can be particularly useful if you want to jump to specific entries quickly, or list all matching entries regardless of site that stored them.You may use it to search for a username or an email address for instance.The add-on does not list Session Storage items in the interface. The reason for this is that session storage items are specific to tabs, and removed automatically when the session closes. You may use Firefox’s Storage Inspector for that, but since the data is not carried over to future sessions, it cannot  be used for tracking purposes.Closing WordsShow Web Storage is an excellent add-on for Firefox. It can be used to manage web storage entries, or clear all locally stored items that a site placed or all of them easily.Firefox users who value their privacy should definitely check it out provided that they don’t use other means already to manage Web Storage in the web browser.Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 5 votes Software Name Web Storage ViewerSoftware Category Browser Advertisementlast_img read more

over an agreement reached at a landmark summit in June for the Asian country to end its nuclear program as Washington called for maintaining sanctions pressure against Pyongyang which in turn said it was alarmed by US intentions The discord at a regional forum in Singapore was the latest reminder of the difficulties that have long impaired efforts to negotiate an end to North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs despite commitments made at an unprecedented summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in the city state less than two months ago US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with North Korea’s Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho at the Asean Regional Forum Retreat in Singapore Reuters “The DPRK stands firm in its determination and commitment for implementing the DPRK-US Joint Statement in a responsible and good-faith manner” North Korea’s Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho told the ASEAN Regional Forum using his country’s official name the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea “What is alarming however is the insistent moves manifested within the US to go back to the old far from its leader’s intention” he said Ri made the statement after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had left the Singapore conference center for Indonesia having pressed Southeast Asian nations to maintain sanctions on North Korea until it gives up a nuclear weapons program that now threatens the US At the 12 June summit Kim who is seeking relief from tough sanctions committed to work towards denuclearisation but North Korea has offered no details on how it might go about this Pompeo suggested on Friday that continued work on weapons programs by North Korea was inconsistent with Kim’s commitment to denuclearize On Saturday he nevertheless said he was optimistic a North Korean denuclearisation could be achieved although it “would take some time” Ri said North Korea had made goodwill gestures including a moratorium on nuclear tests and rocket launches and the dismantling of a nuclear test ground “However the US instead of responding to these measures is raising its voice louder for maintaining the sanctions against the DPRK and showing the attitude to retreat even from declaring the end of the war a very basic and primary step for providing peace on the Korean peninsula” he said On Saturday Pompeo said Washington took very seriously any relaxation of UN sanctions calling out Russia for possibly violating a UN resolution by issuing work visas to North Korean workers Warning to Moscow: “I want to remind every nation that has supported these resolutions that this is a serious issue and something that we will discuss with Moscow” he said “We expect the Russians and all countries to abide by the UN Security Council resolutions and enforce sanctions on North Korea” Russia has denied a report by the Wall Street Journal that said Moscow was allowing thousands of fresh North Korean laborers into the country and granting them work permits in a potential breach of UN sanctions Russia’s ambassador to North Korea also denied Moscow was flouting UN restrictions on oil supplies to North Korea According to a confidential UN report seen by Reuters on Friday North Korea has not stopped nuclear and missile programs in violation of UN sanctions Although Pompeo has been leading US negotiating efforts with North Korea he had no formal meeting with Ri in Singapore However at a group photo session on Saturday he walked up to the North Korean and shook hands and exchanged words and smiles He told Ri: “We should talk again soon” the State Department said “I agree there are many productive conversations to be had” Ri replied according to the State Department Pompeo later tweeted that it had been “a quick polite exchange” and there had been the opportunity to deliver a letter for Kim Jong-Un from Trump US Ambassador Sung Kim handed Ri the letter which the State Department said was in return for one from Kim to Trump that the White House said was received on Wednesday The State Department has not said what is in Trump’s letter to Kim Trump posted a note on Twitter on Thursday thanking Kim for returning the remains of US soldiers from the Korean War and saying he looked forward to seeing Kim again “soon” although the White House said no second meeting was currently planned It is not the first time since the summit that North Korea has appeared to offer a more negative impression of the progress of talks with the US that Washington Following a trip to Pyongyang in July Pompeo spoke of progress but as soon as he had left the country North Korea accused him of “gangster-like” diplomacy casting doubts about the future of the discussions Even so Trump has continued to hail progress emphasizing the halt in bomb and missile tests and North Korea’s return of purported American war remains A senior State Department official sought to play down Ri’s statement saying it was to be expected “Much of the intervention was positive and that’s an improvement from the past” the official said “We’re building a relationship with North Korea after years of difficult relations” Since US talks with North Korea resumed in 2018 Pompeo has primarily engaged with Kim Yong-chol a top North Korean party official and former spy agency chief not Ri Pompeo told a Senate committee hearing on 25 Julythat North Korea was continuing to produce fuel for nuclear bombs in spite of its denuclearisation pledge On Monday a senior US official said US spy satellites had detected renewed activity at the North Korean factory

(@suzanekennedyTV) November 30 2016 Write to Justin Worland at justinworland@timecomIDEAS Eric Yoffie was President of the Union for Reform Judaism from 1996 to 2012 Fierce certainty is the enemy of religious belief President Obama understands that The religious right does not In a remarkable address to a national prayer breakfast on February 5 Mr Obama gave one of the better speeches of his presidency The heart of his message was that “the starting point of faith is some doubt” The major religious problem of our time he suggested comes from so-called believers who are so full of themselves and so confident they are right that that they cast aside all humility They think that God speaks only to them From this they conclude that they alone are in possession of the truth and that God cares only about them The first thing to be said about the President’s thesis is that it is self-evidently correct Faith in God even of the most intense variety is invariably accompanied by doubt The most religious people I know are those who acknowledge their struggles with belief and their constant efforts to confront and overcome them Of course many of us have met “in-your-face-believers” who proclaim the absolute certainty of their religious convictions But in my experience these are the people who in fact are eaten alive by doubt and feel the need to compensate with unending public affirmations of their faith President Obama went on to suggest how the principle of religious humility must be applied in our lives He condemned emphatically those in the Muslim world who distort their religion by acts of unrestrained self-righteousness He expressed his horror at those who commit acts of barbarism in the name of Islam substituting a cult of death for thoughtful belief And he mentioned that other traditions too fall victim to lack of humility that leads to a deadly misuse of power He gave as examples the Crusades religious justifications for slavery and Jim Crow in the United States and recent acts of religious violence in India Here again these are matters that are self-evidently true While the President did not mention every major religion Judaism included he could have All religious traditions succumb at certain times to an internal religious dynamic in which sacred texts are misused by extremist elements They embrace a belief in a vengeful hateful God and use this belief to justify killing and fanaticism In the remainder of the President’s remarks he spoke movingly of America’s imperfect but impressive record of preserving religious dynamism and promoting religious moderation America has done what most democracies have not by insisting on both freedom of speech and freedom of religion while also maintaining separation between church and state Americans he said have a vibrant religious life because they do certain things: They are humble about their religious convictions They don’t allow government to get in the way of religious practice And they defend the right of a person to insult another’s religion while also using their freedom of speech to condemn such insults One would think that both religious and political conservatives would have applauded the President’s remarks which celebrated American religion and affirmed the centrality of religion in American society But in fact exactly the opposite happened As noted in the Washington Post Jim Gilmore the former Republican governor of Virginia called the President’s comments “the most offensive I’ve ever heard a president make in my lifetime” Southern Baptist leader Russell Moore said the speech’s sentiments were “an unfortunate attempt at a wrongheaded moral comparison” suggesting that the President’s emphasis should have been on defeating ISIS and not the sins of Christianity Why in heaven’s name the uproar since the President’s words were so carefully chosen and so enthusiastically supportive of America’s religious way of life In all probability denial was at work here As a religious person I know that it is not easy to acknowledge the uncertainties that insidiously seep into my religious beliefs leaving me with doubts that I am loathe to admit But doubts there are for me and for all religious believers and the President was wise to remind me of them and suggest humility on my part Also as a patriotic American I am always inclined to focus on what my country does right But American history includes evil acts for which we Americans must be held accountable with slavery being an irrefutable example And as a committed Jew who resists with all his being criticism of my history and traditions even when justified I understand how a Christian colleague would instinctively resist reminders of Christian sins including thosesuch as the Crusadesthat happened long ago and have been acknowledged by the Church The point is that it was the President’s honesty and sincerity that made his comments moving and powerful especially since the sins and the doubts were not the heart of the speech They were but the preview to his broader message that by grappling with such matters America has become the most religious of modern democracies offering her citizens many paths to redemption healing and hope The most bizarre criticism of the President came from Ross Douthat of The New York Times Douthat noted correctly that the President spoke in the spirit of Reinhold Niebuhr the great Protestant theologian and Douthat admitted the validity of much of the President’s argument But Douthat claimed since the President is a political partisan it must be assumed that he has partisan aims and that his use of theology is therefore inappropriate and must be discounted In other words the same conservatives who dismiss Obama as a secular progressive now condemn him when he makes an effort to express a religious message in religious language This is absurd While religious talk can be abused of course God is neither a liberal Democrat nor a conservative Republican and struggling with God language and fundamental religious questions goes back to the earliest days of the Republic Mr Douthat should think back to the words of President Lincoln our greatest President at his second inaugural Lincoln too suggested the need for religious humility reminding us of a transcendent God whose will we cannot hope to entirely know and drawing conclusions for a confused and hurting nation We should thank President Obama for sharing with us his struggle with these questions and hope that future Presidents will do
