The Council, in two resolutions adopted on 17 June, split the sanctions it has imposed on Al-Qaida and those against the Taliban, creating two lists of individuals and organizations so that they can be treated separately.Sanctions originally created for the Taliban were converted into a global Al Qaida terrorist listing regime, while the Taliban will be covered by resolution 1988 which is based on a territorial limitation and the identification of the situation in Afghanistan as constituting a threat to international peace and security.In a statement issued in Geneva, Martin Scheinin, the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and counter-terrorism, said “the Al Qaida sanctions regime under resolution 1989 does not, judged by the letter of the resolution, remedy the human rights shortcomings expressed in relation to the earlier consolidated list.”Judicial challenges to the listings are likely to continue, he said.“Due to the unsatisfactory level of due process guarantees such as disclosure of information and a right to an effective remedy, the strengthened role of the ombudsperson is unlikely to satisfy national or European courts that the safeguards at the United Nations level are sufficient, so that these courts could allow deference instead of exercising their jurisdiction over the national or European measures for the implementation of the sanctions,” said Mr. Scheinin.However, he added that his assessment may change if Security Council members are prepared to secure the following conditions:Any listing proposal require the submission of the full set of information that is used as the substantive basis for the listing proposal;The person or entity subjected to the listing proposal has the right and practical means to effectively challenge the proposal;The delisting ombudsperson has access to the full set of information used for the listing;The delisting recommendations by the ombudsperson or delisting proposals by the designating State are in practice respected.“If these conditions are met in the implementation… the Special Rapporteur finds it likely that national or European courts will require listed individuals or entities to exhaust the delisting procedure of the ombudsperson before exercising their jurisdiction in relation to the national or European implementing measures,” said Mr. Scheinin. 29 June 2011An independent United Nations human rights expert today said that the new procedure adopted by the Security Council on the listing of individuals and organizations under the international sanctions regime against terrorism still fails to address the human rights shortcomings in the process.

The Toronto stock market was listless Thursday amid concerns about the role of central banks in supporting the economic recovery and a forecast of lower than expected growth by the World Bank.The S&P/TSX composite index inched up 1.31 points to 12,111.2, off early lows as miners, financials and tech stocks all turned positive. The Canadian dollar was ahead 0.48 of a cent to 98.4 cents US amid lower commodity prices.U.S. indexes were also little changed amid positive readings on retail sales and claims for jobless benefits as the Dow Jones industrials shed 1.92 points to 14,993.31. The Nasdaq declined 4.18 points to 3,396.25 while the S&P 500 index was up 0.59 of a point to 1,613.09.The U.S. Commerce Department said that retail sales increased 0.6 per cent in May from April. That’s up from a 0.1 per cent gain the previous month and the fastest pace since February. The gain shows consumers remain resilient despite higher taxes and could drive faster growth later this year. The April gain was led by a 1.8 per cent jump in auto sales, the biggest increase in six months.The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits dropped 12,000 to a seasonally adjusted 334,000 last week. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, decreased 7,250 to 345,250. Applications are a proxy for layoffsCentral bank worries had also pushed Toronto and New York markets lower Wednesday as the TSX fell 114 points — its eighth loss in nine sessions — and the Dow fell 127 points.Worries about central banks have been growing ever since Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke said on May 22 that the Fed might pull back on its US$85 billion-a-month bond-buying program, known as quantitative easing, if economic data improves, especially hiring. The QE program has fuelled a strong rally on U.S. markets.Now Japanese media reports are saying overseas hedge funds may be dumping the country’s equities following disappointment over the Bank of Japan’s decision earlier in the week to refrain from additional monetary easing measures.Those reports helped send Tokyo’s Nikkei 225 index plunging 6.4 per cent, while the yen strengthened 1.5 per cent against the greenback. A rising yen spells bad news for Japanese manufacturers because it will make their exports look more expensive overseas.In April, the Bank of Japan announced a massive stimulus in an attempt to get inflation up to two per cent. The euphoria that drove the Nikkei up to five-year highs followed by wild fluctuations. The index is now around 20 per cent down from its May 23 peak, leaving the market in bear market territory.Commodity prices were lower as the World Bank lowered its global economic-growth forecast, saying it expects expansion of only 2.2 per cent this year, down from a 2.4 per cent projection issued in January.In its semiannual Global Economic Prospects report, the World Bank also revised lower its expectations for growth in China, Brazil and India. At the same time, it upped growth estimates for Japan and the U.S.The gold sector led TSX decliners, down 0.55 per cent as August bullion on the Nymex fell $6.80 to US$1,385.20 an ounce. Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) faded 23 cents to C$19.96.The industrials sector declined 0.45 per cent and Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) was down $1.03 to $124.42.The energy sector was off 0.2 per cent while the July crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange moved down 19 cents to US$95.69 a barrel. But Imperial Oil (TSX:IMO) ran ahead 58 cents to $39.47.Speculation that the Fed will begin to wind down its quantitative easing program has also had the effect of pushing U.S. Treasury yields sharply higher, which in turn has had a negative effect on TSX defensive sectors such as real estate, utilities, telecoms and pipelines.The utilities component was lower Thursday as Just Energy Group (TSX:JE) fell 14 cents to $6.28.The base metals sector gained 1.7 per cent as July copper lost two cents to US$3.20. Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) was up 53 cents to $24.59.Financials gained 0.35 per cent while Royal Bank (TSX:RY) climbed 25 cents to $59.28.The tech sector was also supportive as BlackBerry (TSX:BB) improved by 70 cents to $14.57.Earnings news and acquisitions also provided lift for the TSX.Empire Company Ltd. (TSX:EMP.A) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sobeys Inc. announced Wednesday after the close that they are buying rival Canada Safeway Limited for $5.8 billion in cash. Empire shares jumped $7.44 or 11 per cent to $75.05.Shares in Transat A.T. Inc. (TSX:TRZ.B) ran up 53 cents or 10 per cent to $5.84 as the travel company posted a net loss of $22.8 million or 59 cents per share in the quarter ended April 30. On an adjusted after-tax basis, Transat lost $1.43 million or four cents per share, which was far better than the 26 cents per share loss estimated by analysts and an improvement from a loss of 64 cents per share in the second quarter of 2012.Elsewhere in Asia, the Hang Seng index fell 2.2 per cent while the Kospi in South Korea lost 1.4 per cent.Mainland Chinese were pummelled as accumulating signs of a slowdown in growth in the world’s number-two economy caused investors to retreat. The Shanghai Composite Index slid 2.8 per cent to its lowest close in six months.European bourses were mixed with London’s FTSE 100 index down 0.06 per cent, Frankfurt’s DAX fell 0.58 per cent and the Paris CAC 40 dropped 0.15 per cent.

Uber has rolled out an in-app option for riders to tip their driver in five Canadian cities and plans to implement the feature across Canada and the U.S at the end of July. The new feature, which went into effect Thursday, is available in a total 121 cities in Canada and the U.S. The tipping feature is currently available in Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, Windsor, Ont. and Kingston, Ont. Uber says the feature was implemented after requests from drivers and riders for the option to tip on the app, rather than in cash. Drivers were only recently allowed to ask for cash tips following the settlement of a US$100 million class-action lawsuit in 2016, which further clarified the status of their drivers as independant contractors, rather than employees. Uber drivers will not be able to see how much you tip them until they give you a passenger rating.The Canadian Press

Click to enlarge Disgruntled DOL customers rejoice: Vancouver driver licensing offices are experiencing some of the lowest wait times in years. The Washington Department of Licensing attributes statewide wait time reductions to expanded online and mail-in options, and to moving driver testing to qualified driver training schools.The average wait time in the first half of January for the Vancouver North office on Northeast 117th Avenue was six minutes, while the Vancouver East location on Northeast 136th Avenue averaged eight minutes.Last year, the DOL added the option to pre-apply online for a driver’s license and introduced an application called License Express that allows drivers to take care of the most common transactions for all of their vehicles and licenses in one spot.In 2012, nearly one-quarter of the agency’s 3.4 million driver transactions were done by mail or online, according to a news release from the DOL. Over the last five years, that percentage has grown from 5 percent to 23 percent.However, local service innovations came with a caveat. Vancouver licensing office customers experienced longer than average wait times this summer while employees were learning to use upgraded counter equipment. In July, the average wait time spiked to 79 minutes at Vancouver East and 73 minutes at Vancouver North; that’s more than five times the average of the previous summer.

Over 90 different languages are spoken within Houston. The conference brought together translators and interpreters to work on providing the most effective communication services in health care.Cody Francisco is a Certified Deaf Interpreter (CDI) and medical interpreter. He is deaf himself and provides a cultural understanding in his translating. “So my job as a CDI is to provide that cultural information and become bilingual and bicultural, so I can provide both of those, which is required for me as an interpreter,” said Francisco, translated by an interpreter.The conference was sponsored by MasterWord, a language service provider company.Mila Golovine, the president of MasterWord, wants people to know the importance of using a professional interpreter versus friends or family.“The difference between speaking a foreign language and being able to interpret can be compared to the difference of knowing how to drive a car and knowing how to repair your car,” said Golovine.Every year thousands of international patients come to the Texas Medical Center increasing the need for language providers.

Costing ¢80 million ($150,000), the new dinosaur hall boasts one T. rex, one Stegosaurus, and one Triceratops, and because of their robotic skeletons, they actually seem to come to life.“Thanks to scientific advances, children and the general public can access electronics and applications that allow them to explore the world,” said Cristina Briceño, head of the Department of Museology, in a printed statement. “In the museum we are using these resources in an entertaining and educational manner, to have an impact on our exhibits’ visitors in a positive way.”The dinosaurs are full-sized facsimiles of their Jurassic ancestors, and their pebbled skins are painted in the colors that paleontologists guess real dinosaurs displayed. While guests are not allowed to touch the dinosaurs – a ring of picket fence surrounds each one – children can ogle the giant creatures as they swivel their heads and flex their reptilian tails. In the middle of the room, the T. rex and Triceratops look like they’re sizing each other up and preparing for combat. Tyrannosaurus Rex and Triceratops. Alberto Font/The Tico TimesThe exhibit is also extremely hands-on: There are 15 interactive devices, plus a number of skeletal replicas, spread out among 333 square meters. The exhibit takes its name from the Spanish words for dinosaur (“dinosaurio”) and “world” (“mundo”).Ever since its opening in 1994, the Costa Rican Center of Science and Culture has transformed the former prison into a mecca for school field trips. The compound houses the Children’s Museum, the National Gallery, and the National Auditorium. “Mundosaurio” embellishes the Children’s Museum’s many scientific exhibits, including displays on geology, astronomy, and human biology. Smaller dinosaurs are also scattered throughout the museum’s other rooms, including several specimens in the food court and a pterodactyl in a corridor.If the kids aren’t already begging you to take them, there’s also this: The “Jurassic Route” is a labyrinth and obstacle course that snakes through the museum. The route includes a “Tarzan swing,” suspension bridge, and a pendulum. With any luck, the offspring will sleep the entire drive home.“Mundosaurio” takes place at the Children’s Museum, downtown San José.

Denmark’s tourist board recruited MasterChef’s Matt Moran, the world’s best chef, Rasmus Kofoed and Princess Mary to entice Aussie travellers to follow their taste buds into the European country.Speaking at the event, Mr Moran explained that Denmark was the “hottest country” in regards to food, particularly because of the designs and flavours.“It the number of destination when it comes to food,” he said during the press conference.With local cuisines committed to emphasising the region’s Nordic roots, Australia’s Ambassador to Denmark, James Choi concurred, explaining the simplicity yet uniqueness behind the design and quality of a Danish dish makes it worth experiencing.“They are know for creating beautiful produce and creating incredible design… [and] making it into a work of art,” he said.“It is inspiring that they put this amazing innovation onto the plate. Mr Choi added the “incredible eye for detail and quality” unique to the Danish people drives a lot of Aussie consumer products to conduct their market research and testing in Denmark.“If it works for the Danish market then it will work,” he stressed.While food was the main dish at the “round table” discussion, Aussies were also urged to drop by the European country to experience one of the “happiest” destinations on the planet.Although the weather in Denmark was immediately ruled out as a cause for the pleasant attitude of the locals, Mr Choi said it is likely a result of the “incredible” balance between work and family.“Danish have an incredible sense of balance,” Mr Choi explained.“Denmark is a very prosperous nation but at the same time Danish workers have an incredible commitment to family and friends.”Click here to check out photos as Princess Mary assisted Matt Moran and Rasmus Kofoed create Danish dishes.

Zambia Tourism Board in association with Kenya Airways recently organised a familiarisation trip to Zambia for prominent tour operators from India. The 7-days tour to Zambia showcased Kenya Airways flights and the sights and sounds of the destination.Zambia Tourism Board hopes to capitalise on the growing outbound market from India and increase tourist arrivals to Zambia. Felix Chaila, Managing Director, Zambia Tourism Board said, “India is an emerging source market for us and we want to see a positive growth from this market. This FAM was conducted so that Indian travel trade can get firsthand experience of the wonders of Zambia and can promote the destination further in their own country. We hope they will create customised itineraries to Zambia and promote it as a standalone destination or as add-on to Kenya and South Africa itineraries.”The familiarisation trip consisted of agents from Cox & Kings, Beacon Holidays, The Wanderers, Itrip Holidays, JTB travels, Destination Management and World of Vacation along with Lubaina Sheerazi, COO, Blue Square Consultants. The group visited Lusaka, Livingstone, South Luangwa & Lower Zambezi National Parks and enjoyed activities like canoeing in the Zambezi River amongst hippos and crocodiles, day and night game drive in South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi National Park, cruise on African Queen, bush breakfast in South Luangwa National Park and dinner on Royal Livingstone Express Train. Some of the partners who provided support to the FAM include Bushtracks Africa, Sun International, Royal Zambezi Lodge, Mfuwe Lodge, Kafunta River Lodge, Flatdogs Camp, Chiawa Camp, Sausage Tree Camp and the airline Proflight Zambia.“Zambia is the new face of Africa and is a safe and secure destination with one of the fastest growing economies in the world. We feel Indians are looking at exploring new and exciting destinations and Zambia is a product they will love. The country has tourist attractions like parks, lakes, rich heritage and culture but the main USP of Zambia remains the World Heritage Site of Victoria Falls, the only natural wonder of the World in Africa and the largest curtain of falling water in the World. One can enjoy activities like Bungee Jumping, helicopter and micro light flight over the famed Victoria Falls. Another interesting feature of the falls is the Devil’s pool, seen by more than 20 million viewers on u-tube and rated by Trip Advisor as the Best natural swimming Pool in the World. It is right at the lip of the Victoria Falls providing a vantage and unforgettable view of the falls at the spot where, Dr David Livingstone, the Scottish Explorer and Missionary became the first Westerner to see the Victoria Falls in 1855 and uttered the words ‘Scenes so lovely, they must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight’ and ‘By far the finest sight I have seen in Africa’. Moving forward, we plan to conduct more familiarisation trips, focused network events for trade, branding activities and one-on-one sales meetings in India with the help of our India representative Blue Square Consultants,” added Chaila.

RelatedTravel insurance – is it worth it?Travel insurance – is it worth it?Top tips to make your pound go furtherTop tips to make your pound go furtherHappy TravelsHappy Travels Skyscanner takes a look at how you can protect yourself before you go, whilst you are there, and when you return.20 million or so Britons go abroad every year and around 7 million will get ill at some point whilst away. For most, it will be something minor; a stomach bug, the flu perhaps, but if you make bad decisions or are unlucky, it could be much more serious.Before you Travel1. 25% of people who go on holiday don’t take out travel insurance. So the first piece of advice is: don’t risk it. Take out medical insurance before you go. Costs of medical care abroad can be extortionate for visitors and repatriation bills even higher. If something happens, it you or your family who will end up footing the bill, and insurance is not expensive anyway.2. Ensure you declare pre-existing medical conditions or you may invalidate your cover.3. Check whether or not you need vaccinations or boosters for the country you are visiting. If you are not sure, go to your GP who will advise you. If you fail to get the right jabs and contract a preventable disease, you’re your policy could be invalidated.4. If you need any pressing dental work, get it done before you travel.5. If you take prescription medicines, get a copy of it in case of emergency. Also, check that the country you are going to does not list your medication as a restricted drug.6. If you are an EU citizen and travelling within the EU, get yourself a European Health Insurance Card to get free or heavily discounted medical cover abroad. You can apply online and it’s very quick and easy.7. Take a decent medical kit containing rehydrating powders in case of stomach upsets, antiseptic and antihistamine for bites. If travelling to really remote places, then take a pack including sterilised syringes and a transfusion kit.8. If you are seriously allergic to anything, consider wearing an identity bracelet or chain to announce the fact. Failing that, keep a note inside your wallet which explains the allergy.9. Take spare glasses or a good supply of contact lenses if your eyesight is poor.Whilst you are away10. Always use sun cream of an appropriate factor and remember you can burn even if it is cloudy. If you are at altitude, then the effects of the sun are increased.11. In hot weather, drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.12. Make sure tap water is safe to drink. If advised against drinking it, use bottled water for everything – including cleaning your teeth – and keep your mouth shut in the shower.13. A sudden change in diet can upset delicate stomachs, so if this is you, try and introduce new foods gradually to give youself a chance to adjust.14. Make sure that food is cooked properly – particularly meat and shellfish.15. Avoid eating food from street stalls that looks like it has been sitting in the sun all day.16. If the local tap water is a problem, then avoid ice in drinks. Salads too, are often washed in tap water and can make you ill.17. Don’t have unprotected sex with partners you have met abroad (or at home for that matter!).18. If you are in a malarial area, ensure you are taking anti-malarial pills and use mosquito repellent and a mosquito net at night.19. Watch out for traffic as a pedestrian or a driver. Standards of driving and road etiquette differ wildly all over the world. Qatar, South Africa, Botswana, Kazakhstan and Malaysia have the highest death rates in road accidents.Once you are home20. Carry on taking any anti-malarial pills or any other prescribed medication you are on for the recommended amount of time.21. If you have been to tropical climes and are ill on your return with unusual symptoms, then let your doctor know. Be aware that some parasites can remain dormant for many months or even years before symptoms become apparent.22. Send off any medical receipts or bills you have incurred to your insurance company.For further information check the FCO’s Travel Health PagesReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map

" Bornstein,England and Sweden and Russia and Croatia are due to play on Saturday Clickherefor full coverage ofFIFAWorld Cup 2018 Clickhereto view the full schedule ofFIFAWorld Cup 2018 After 2010 the Premier League has twisted and turned like a ballerina on an adrenaline high and lots of new moves have taken stage: mid-table teams punching above their weight — with some success Tottenham Hotspur emerging as a top-four neophyte and of course Leicester City pulling the most impossible of mission impossibles But the dominant narrative and easily the one most talked and written about has been centred around the city of Manchester; two teams — one as red as blood and one blue as sky — whose histories couldn’t be more contrasting even if they tried to scripting just as contrasting presents The rise of Manchester City somehow aligned with the fall — if one may use the term liberally — of Manchester United Towards the end of the previous decade United had won the league four times in five years and City meanwhile had been sowing seeds investing money and getting better season after season A flurry of forwards came to City over the years; Robinho Carlos Tevez Edin Dzeko Mario Balotelli Only one stayed And in just seven seasons and 264 appearances Sergio Aguero is now City’s all-time top scorer File image of Sergio Aguero AP One has to say City were patient by nouveau riche standards and took time to figure things out They didn’t start winning from the moment their bank account inflated They made mistakes and learnt from them They slowly climbed up the league table; from tenth to fifth to third to that fateful final-day fixture against Queens Park Rangers It is telling that one only needs to search ‘Agueroooo’ on the internet to know everything about the greatest moment in Premier League history With his last touch of his first season at City the Argentinean brought the league title to the other side of Manchester for the first time in 44 years Aguero became a club legend in one season How many players can say that about themselves Five-and-a-half years later Aguero netted in his 178th goal for City this week completing a mere formality a signing of papers that ink his legend Since his arrival there has been no other Premier League forward as clockwork as him The diminutive Argentinean has in a way changed the idea of the quintessential ‘Premier League striker’ — a tall hunky "no-nonsense man" who you’d want on your side in a bar brawl You’ll find British pundits still reminiscing about them Aguero is short somewhat stocky quick technically gifted and I’m pretty sure useless in a bar brawl On a football field it’s a different story He broke Maradona’s record when he debuted at the age of 15 in the Argentinean league; moved to Atletico Madrid at the age of 18 for about 20 million in 2006 and went on to score over a 100 goals over the next five years; City bought him in 2011 for 38 million a price that now seems like a Black Friday discount and since then his career in England has resembled a greatest hits compilation Yet Aguero remains criminally underrated especially in England For a striker who changed striking in the Premier League Aguero has hardly ever found himself on a pedestal Sure the media keeps calling him ‘special’ and ‘class act’ and has an army of adjectives ready to throw at him when he scores but somehow it always seems like Aguero’s significance escapes them Partly it’s down to the nature of British media itself Every weekend pundits grumble about English managers not getting a fair chance in the league despite the fact the English managers they’re talking about barely have a page on their CV When Watford hire a Marco Silva or Crystal Palace get a Frank de Boer or Leicester City bring in Claude Puel the chatter begins: give it to Ryan Giggs give it to Sean Dyche give it to the bloke who works at the local grocery as long as he’s British It’s that long-dormant now emerging racist and xenophobic drivel "They’re taking all our jobs" only it’s disguised as ‘expert opinion’ That bias is present against foreign players as well though in a reduced measure It does make for perfect irony that it is the foreign players who have maintained the quality of the Premier League Promising English players through no fault of theirs are put on such high pedestals that they are bound to fall That is not to say foreign players do not receive recognition Indeed the list of Premier League’s all-time finest includes the likes of Thierry Henry Dennis Bergkamp Claude Makelele Cristiano Ronaldo Didier Drogba and many others But an Alan Shearer or a Wayne Rooney will explicably be more beloved In his seventh season now each probably better than the last one Aguero is yet to reach the ‘beloved’ status except among City fans Aguero’s magnificent flight just under the bracket of football elite is also down to another diminutive Argentinean It seems as if a generation of Argentinean footballers went underrated due to the utter madness of Lionel Messi He casts a shadow so large that it still looms on Neymar even after the Brazilian moved over a thousand kilometres away to Paris The entire Argentinean national team is nothing but one big McGuffin in Messi’s story in ‘the greatest of all time’ narrative It’s never ‘Argentina should win the World Cup’ it’s always ‘Messi should win a World Cup with Argentina’ And well there’s also the fact that Aguero plays for Manchester City a club that’s not present in the prescribed history of the English League Unless you’re Manchester United Arsenal or Liverpool you’re ‘w*****s’ Aside from a few recognisable reasons Aguero’s non-reckoning in the highest echelons of football is largely mysterious and frankly baffling He has got to be the best low-key striker in Europe if there is such a thing Yes there are some who score more goals than him (and there are not many) and then there are some who make a big deal out of their achievements but Aguero has just been Aguero-ing in his time be it at Atletico or Manchester City He just doesn’t care Players and managers came and went at City the club kept changing shape and style those who were crucial once are redundant today but Aguero has been there doing his thing making himself indispensible season after season He doesn’t need a statue at the entrance of the stadium; he is the statue The commentator screaming his name in a protracted manner is an actual thing an invention of our age Just like memes and cat videos We see so many great players doing so many great things in the Premier League today but nothing comes close to the inevitability of ‘Aguerooooooooo’30 pm-5.An employee did not have authority to let agents into his storage unit— some individual journalists and media persons are sensitive and command great respect.
