Germany launches auction for 5G network frequencies

BERLIN — Germany has launched an auction for frequencies in the future super-fast 5G network following a dispute over conditions imposed by authorities and questions over whether China’s Huawei can supply equipment.The auction, which started Tuesday, is expected to last several weeks and raise 3-5 billion euros ($3.4-5.7 billion). Existing network operators Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone and Telefonica, and newcomer Drillisch are bidding.A court last week rejected the current operators’ bid to force a delay. They faulted requirements they fear might force them to open their networks to competitors, and a call for at least 98 per cent of households in every German state to be supplied with fast internet by the end of 2022.Separately, authorities put together security requirements requiring system suppliers to be “trustworthy.” They didn’t specifically mention Huawei.The Associated Press read more

Sri Lanka urged to uphold rule of law human rights

UN refugee agency says Turkish asylumseekers at sea deserve hearings

“Returning an asylum-seeker to his country of origin without hearing his or her claim is against the fundamental principles of international refugee law and may amount to refoulement,” the refugee agency’s spokesman, Rupert Colville, said, referring to the illegal eviction of a refugee. The spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said that under European Union (EU) law, Italy would appear to be responsible for assessing the claims of the asylum-seekers, thought to be 11 men and two boys. Under the terms of the EU Dublin Regulation, the 13 should be able to disembark from the Antigua and Barbuda-registered Lydia Oldendorff in Malta and then be transferred to Italy, Mr. Colville added. Alternatively, the owner, who flew to Malta, has said that he would be prepared to send his ship back to Italy, providing he received clear assurances within the next 36 hours from the Italian authorities that the 13 can disembark. Mr. Colville said the situation aboard the vessel is “extremely tense” because of the limited quarters for the 13 asylum-seekers, 16 crew members and four newly hired security guards. At least one of the men reportedly has attempted suicide. He urged Malta and Italy “to act in accordance with their responsibilities under international law without further delay.” read more

UN Human Rights Council should promote tolerance among cultures urge rights experts

Mehr Khan Williams, Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights, in concluding discussions on incitement to racial and religious hatred reaffirmed that the OHCHR (Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights) would continue to support the 47-member Council on these matters.Calling for the Council to work on how to promote tolerance among cultures, she also said it would be useful for the UN’s Special Rapporteurs, unpaid independent human rights experts, to elaborate on these areas.Doudou Diene, Special Rapporteur on racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, called on the Council to look at its strategy on this issue, taking into account that it needed to be long-term and acknowledge the complexity of religious plurality. In her remarks, Asma Jahangir, Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief, stressed that infringements on the freedom of religion or belief had to be denounced and fought at all levels of society.Representatives from more than 20 countries and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) spoke in the debate after the reports were presented.In another session today, the Council discussed reports of its Special Rapporteurs on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health; the right to food; and the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on the situation of human rights defenders.Paul Hunt, Special Rapporteur on the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health, said that right was one of the most extensive and complex human rights in the international code, highlighting that neglected diseases had been affecting the poorest people in the poorest communities.Jean Ziegler, Special Rapporteur on the right to food, said the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) on reducing hunger would not be met by their target date of 2015 and while there had been progress in the world, he held the World Trade Organization (WTO) responsible for massive malnutrition through its decisions.Hina Jilani, Special Representative of the Secretary-General on the situation of human right defenders, said that several governments had recognized the role and status of human rights defenders although serious concerns persisted with regard to their protection. She highlighted that during 2005, she had assessed the situation of human rights defenders in 118 countries, in addition to her three country visits.Representatives from Uganda, Guatemala, India, Brazil and Israel spoke in this debate as concerned countries.This second session of the Council, set up earlier this year to replace the much-criticized Commission on Human Rights, opened on Monday and will run until 6 October. read more

The Popes Harley Davidson was just sold for almost €250k

first_imgA HARLEY DAVIDSON motorbike that briefly belonged to Pope Francis was sold for €241,500 at an auction in Paris today.The going price was 16 times its highest original valuation.The US motorbike maker gave the 1,585cc Dyna Super Glide to the pope in June to mark the brand’s 110th anniversary, and while the 77-year-old never rode it, he signed it before donating it to Roman Catholic charity Caritas Roma.“It’s a record for a post-vintage motorbike, from the 21st century,” said Bonhams France, the auction house, adding the bike was purchased by an unidentified European buyer.The funds from the sale will go towards the restoration of the charity’s hostel and soup kitchen based at Rome’s Termini railway station.A jacket that was also given to the pope by Harley-Davidson was snapped up for €57,500.The bike is on show at the Grand Palais in Paris – where the auction took place – among hundreds of other iconic vehicles such as Rolls-Royces and Cadillacs.According to Bonhams, Pope Francis has another Harley-Davidson, although the famously humble pontiff is more of a fan of buses.He opted to ride one the day after his election last year instead of taking a limousine, and regularly used them in his homeland Argentina instead of taxis.- © AFP, 2014Read: Here’s Pope Francis meeting Philomena Lee and Steve Cooganlast_img read more

A shepherds life proves a hit in print and online

first_img Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall A land of deep, narrow lakes, gray stone walls and green-brown mountains, the Lake District attracts millions of campers, climbers and hikers each year, and has inspired artists and poets since William Wordsworth 200 years ago. But Rebanks felt one important voice was missing.“If you go into any of the bookshops here, you’ll see hundreds and hundreds of books about the Lake District,” said the burly, talkative farmer. “You’ll struggle to find three or four that tell the story of the people who live and work in the landscape.“Until fairly recently, people were still talking about this landscape being ‘discovered’ or’ invented’ in the 18th century by Wordsworth and people like that,” he said. “Our way of life was fully formed before that person ever put pen to paper.”Rebanks’ memoir describes that way of life, whose essence has changed little over the centuries. It is partly an account of a shepherd’s year, from the treacherous snowdrifts of winter to the burst of new life in spring.It’s also partly a political statement: “If we want to understand the people in the foothills of Afghanistan, we may need to try and understand the people in the foothills of England first,” he writes. It’s also a primal story of fathers and sons, poverty and struggle. Rebanks left school at 15 to work on the farm, but clashed with his father and with the brutal economics of farming. He earned a degree in history from Oxford University in his 20s, came home and struggled to keep the family farm going. The last few decades have been hard for small farmers. Most have second jobs; Rebanks works as an adviser on sustainable tourism to the U.N cultural organization, UNESCO.“We’ve been going to disappear for 200-odd years,” he said. “That’s always been the story. Nearly all books about shepherds are ‘The Last Shepherd.’ There’s always ‘last’ in it because it adds a touch of romance.”Rebanks is determined not to be the last of anything. He lives with wife Helen and three children aged between 3 and 9 in Matterdale, one of the Lake District’s many narrow valleys. The family owns 450 sheep, rising to 1,000 after lambing season.One recent day, with a journalist in tow, he hopped on his quad bike and drove some of his flock down narrow lanes to low-lying fields, with the help of his skilled sheepdogs, Tan and Floss. MATTERDALE, England (AP) — James Rebanks sits in his stone farmhouse, describing the hardscrabble mountain life his family has known for six centuries or more. Then his cell phone rings. It’s a big London ad agency, hoping to sign him up for a project.Rebanks is probably the world’s most famous shepherd, with a hit Twitter account, a best-selling book and TV crews rattling up the lane to his farm. He’s gratified by the attention, if a bit bemused. Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Sponsored Stories “Somebody from Hollywood rang up yesterday, wanting to make a movie out of my book,” the 40-year-old said. “Which is completely bonkers.”Readers around the world have flocked to Rebanks’ dispatches from a way of life that has — against the odds — survived industrialization, globalization and mass tourism.On Twitter, his descriptions of lambing and haymaking have attracted 65,000 followers. “The Shepherd’s Life,” his book recounting the rhythms of the rural year and the daily struggle to make ends meet, is a best-seller in Britain and Canada and is being translated into German and Swedish. The New York Times called it “captivating.”Separately, British broadcaster ITV is making a reality show called “Flockstars” that will see celebrities compete in sheepdog trials. And “Rams,” a movie about Icelandic shepherds and their flocks, won a major prize at last month’s Cannes Film Festival.Suddenly, sheep seem to be everywhere. But they have been the center of Rebanks’ life for as long as he can remember.He belongs to one of the few hundred families who farm the valleys and mountains, or fells, of the Lake District in northwest England. It’s a rugged area that has produced stubborn people, as well as sturdy sheep whose homing instinct means they can graze, unfenced, on the unhospitable high fells.

(AP Photo/Jill Lawless) He said the popularity reassures him “that people do care about the land, even if they’re a very long way from it.”“I think there’s a sort of Harvard Business School way of looking at the world which is to say, because it’s old-fashioned, because it doesn’t make very much money, people should rationally choose to go off and be IT consultants or bankers in the City of London,” he said. “I think in my early 20s I bought into that. I thought, we’re on the wrong side of history. It’ll all disappear.“Twenty-something years later I’m looking at it, and we haven’t gone anywhere.”___Follow Jill Lawless on Twitter at © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

At one point in “The Shepherd’s Life,” he describes a male sheep, or tup, as looking like Russell Crowe in “Gladiator,” and the comparison seems entirely reasonable. When he sells one prized ram, he misses seeing him, “as if I once had a Van Gogh on my wall and now it is gone.”“It’s as complicated looking at a great Herdwick as it is looking at a great painting,” Rebanks said.Part of the appeal of “The Shepherd’s Life” for many readers is its focus on place and belonging, things many of us think we’ve lost in our hectic, uprooted lives.Colin Dickerman, editorial director of Flatiron Books, the volume’s U.S. publisher, said memoirs “are often about trying to leave somewhere: kids from small towns who want to escape to the city, people who are sick of the city and want to move to the country.”“This was about trying to stay in one place. To me that was really fascinating.”Rebanks has been delighted by others’ interest in his life and work. His Twitter account, Herdwick Shepherd, has fans around the world. When he live-tweeted the birth of Floss’s puppies in March, he briefly became an Internet sensation.last_img read more

I don’t expect him to slow down, he looks like he’s gotten 100 percent comfortable with the system,” Warner said. “The young receivers are just getting better. David Johnson really came into his own last year. I expect huge things from this team and from Carson himself.”The continued improvement of Johnson would certainly help Palmer, but Warner still has one big question about the quarterback.“I think the biggest question is, when we get to the playoffs what Carson are we going to get? I think that’s the only real question I have. I just want to see him take that next step that everyone wants to see,” Warner said. “The teams he has been a part of here in Phoenix have all done really well, but he hasn’t played his best football when they get to the playoffs.”The NFC Divisional round victory over the Green Packers was Palmer’s first career playoff win.However, the loss to the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Championship game caused him to fall to 1-3 in his playoffs career.Palmer enjoyed his best regular season last year with career highs in touchdowns (35) and passing yards (4,671), while being named to the Pro-Bowl for the first time since 2006.

Positive slant found on Egyptian gas discovery

first_imgBy Elias HazouThe potential existence of a massive gas field just south of Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) will benefit the island by upgrading its geostrategic role, President Nicos Anastasiades said on Tuesday.The President was being asked to comment on news that Italian energy giant ENI discovered what may be a 30 trillion cubic feet (tcf) reservoir inside the Egyptian EEZ, at a site just kilometres away from the Cypriot maritime zone.If confirmed, the Zohr prospect could be the largest ever natural gas discovery in the Mediterranean.“Absolutely, it is a positive development,” Anastasiades told reporters at the Presidential Palace.“If you take into account that our own [offshore] Blocks, 10, 11 and 12, are just kilometres away, then no one can deny that the sites containing such a large quantity of gas extend into the neighbouring areas.”He added: “But there are other aspects to this: the upgrading of Cyprus’ geostrategic and geopolitical role. The huge deposits in the Mediterranean are, and shall continue to be, of major interest for the EU as an alternative source of energy.”Without Cyprus’ consent, he said, no gas can be transported to Europe or to Turkey, because any such pipeline would necessarily have to pass through the Cypriot EEZ.“Therefore this upgrades the role of the Republic and also enhances the need to solve the Cyprus problem.”Asked whether the massive gas find upends Cypriot plans to sell gas to Egypt, Anastasiades said: “Quite the opposite.”There is a likelihood that the reservoir extends into the Cypriot EEZ. According to ENI, the prospect covers an area of about 100 square kilometres, and has a hydrocarbon column of 630 meters.The site is located 3.5 nautical miles (6.5 kilometres) from the border of Block 11 of Cyprus’ EEZ. Block 11 is licensed to oil major Total.If the reservoir does overlap into the Cypriot maritime zone, the unitisation agreement signed between Cyprus and Egypt in December 2013 would presumably kick in.Such an agreement ensures that if reserves are found in the median line between the two countries, a peaceful, legal agreement exists stipulating how to carve up those reserves. Still, the situation may not be as clear-cut as the precise clauses of the agreement are not known.Hypothetically, should part of the Zohr prospect cross over into the Cypriot EEZ, this could represent a windfall for the state – the share of proceeds under the unitisation agreement with Egypt – without Cyprus spending a cent on development.Alternatively, the mere presence of such a large find boosts the probability of separate significant gas reservoirs in the vicinity, on the Cypriot side.Assistant professor at the University of Nicosia and a researcher with the KIOS Centre, University of Cyprus, Constantinos Hadjistassou points out that more drilling by ENI must take place before an accurate picture of the Zohr reservoir can emerge.“It’s still early days. There are promising signs for Cyprus, but let’s leave it at that,” he said.In January of this year, it was revealed that France’s Total was considering abandoning its prospecting in Cypriot waters after failing to identify good drilling targets.Anxious to keep Total’s operations going, even on a token level, the government subsequently moved to amend the company’s contract.Total relinquished Block 10 without drilling any wells. The company was released from its original two-well drilling commitment – across two adjacent blocks, 10 and 11, lying on the maritime border with Egypt – but maintained exploration rights in Block 11, agreeing to continue to evaluate 3D seismic data in a bid to locate a possible target.The results of their surveys in Block 11 are expected before the end of the year, government sources told the Cyprus Mail.Now, with the Zohr discovery, the company may well rethink its approach. But their exploration programme in Block 11 ends in February 2016, giving them precious little time to make a concrete move, such as drilling a well – unless the government renews their exploration license.“Everyone is evaluating the new discovery in Egypt’s EEZ and its possible technical/geological implications,” the source said.A buzz was created on Twitter on Tuesday after Norwegian surveyors PGS said the Zohr discovery possibly extends into Cyprus.But the government source, who requested anonymity, said one should take such assertions with a grain of salt.“PGS are of course looking to play up the discovery in order to sell their data to customers. And keep in mind that right now things are sluggish in the whole hydrocarbons business.”Likewise energy expert Charles Ellinas stressed that it is too early to call the ramifications for Cyprus from the Zohr discovery. ENI itself has given no indication that the reservoir extends into the Cyprus EEZ, he said.“Reading the press in Israel, there’s a great deal of distress, even despair, about ENI’s find in Egypt. Over there, concerns are discussed in public.
