Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel Visits JBER

first_imgU.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel stopped by Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson on Wednesday at the outset of a 12-day tour abroad. Hagel talked with army and air force personnel about the changes ahead as the U.S. transitions out of 13 years of war.Hagel brought tidings from the military’s commander in chief, President Obama, and the message that times are changing.“What is the role of America in today’s world?” Hagel asked. “With the kind of challenges we face — it’s complicated, more complicated than we’ve ever seen.“We’ve got budget challenges. But this is not unusual in our history. When you come out of wars, you do transition, and you do restructure, and reposition, and reposture.”U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel visited Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson May 28 at the start of a 12-day tour overseas.As the U.S. removes itself from Afghanistan other parts of the world are emerging as priorities — including the Arctic, Hagel said.“The Arctic is opening. It will continue to open. That is going to make possible many new opportunities for many countries and many people. It’s going to present also new challenges. And new dangers,” Hagel said.After Hagel’s speech, those in attendance were invited to tell the defense secretary what was on their minds.A staff sergeant asked Hagel about care for veterans transitioning to civilian life.“In recent events we lost a veteran paratrooper from the 501st (Infantry Regiment) family. He suffered from PTSD and he tried to seek help at the VA hospital. My question is what the DOD and the Dept. Vet. Affairs is going to do to mitigate cases like his and others — and what is going to happen to be able to ensure that service members that transition out of the military to make sure that if they’re suffering from PTSD that they’ll be taken care of after serving their country.”“Preparing that active duty member for the next phase of his or her life is a big responsibility we have. We focus on that. It’s not perfect. We can do better. We will do better,” Hagel replied.Airman first class Samantha Place said Hagel’s speech helped reassure her that the military is hardly redundant even as the country transitions out of war.“When Secretary of Defense talked about reduction of force I kind of perked up a bit because I want to make this a career. It’s kind of frightening. But it’s comforting to know that the White House is here. They do care about us. And they are here for us. Just like we’re here for them.”Hagel is headed onward to Singapore, Afghanistan and several destinations in Europe.last_img read more

COPY LINKAD Loading … Fake WhatsApp can potentially gain access to users’ personal data Last month, a report emerged that WhatsApp testing new privacy feature that will give more power to the messenger user to decline group invite unlike before where anybody could just add anyone to a group without the latter’s permission.Now, WhatsApp has finally released the new update to its messenger app for both the iOS and the Android versions, bringing the aforementioned feature.Here’s how the new privacy feature works:With the new update, a WhatsApp group admin has to send a private message to get prior permission from a user before adding the latter to the group. This is a welcome move, as many and myself too, been a victim of people adding to unwanted groups and I had to leave the community only to be added again into the same group.If the user rejects the request, the admin will never be able to add a person to a group without the permission. Now, no can just add you random group chats on WhatsApp.WhatsApp Press Kit (screen-shot)To enable it, go to Settings in your app, then tap Account > Privacy > Groups and select one of three options: ‘Nobody’ or ‘My Contacts’ or ‘Everyone’.If you select ‘Nobody’, you’ll have to approve joining every group to which you’re invited, and ‘My Contacts’ means only users you have in your address book can add you to groups.In those cases, the person inviting you to a group will be prompted to send a private invite through an individual chat, giving you the choice of joining the group. You’ll have three days to accept the invite and if you don’t reply, it expires automatically.If you select ‘Everyone’, all those in your contacts and also unknown random people can just add you into a group chat without your permission. Readers are advised to not to select this option.”With these new features, users will have more control over the group messages they receive. These new privacy settings will begin rolling out to some users starting today and will be available worldwide in the coming weeks to those using the latest version of WhatsApp,” the company spokesperson said in a statement.In a related development, WhatsApp is testing ‘reverse image search’ feature, which will help user fact check whether the photo is fake or original. WhatsApp to bring Image search feature to curb fake news on its messenger appWABetaInfo (screen-shot)As per the image (above), we can see there is a new ‘Reverse Search image’ feature and if you select yes, it will upload the forwarded image to the Google browser and match it with the vast visual data available on the Internet. This will apparently give you a clear idea whether the image is a morphed photo used to project a particular person (or a political party) is bad or a saviour.It remains to be seen if the new image search feature comes before the Lok Sabha 2019 election in India, which is scheduled to kick off on April 11 and conclude on May 19. The counting of votes will be held on May 23.center_img Closelast_img read more

Bangladesh UNHCR sign MoU on Rohingya repatriation

first_imgUN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi and Bangladesh foreign secretary Md Shahidul Haque signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Friday. Photo: UNBUNHCR, the UN refugee agency, and the Bangladesh government on Friday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) relating to the voluntary returns of Rohingya refugees once the conditions in Myanmar are conducive, reports UNB.The MoU, signed by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi and Bangladesh foreign secretary Md Shahidul Haque in Geneva, established a framework of cooperation between UNHCR and Bangladesh on the safe, voluntary, and dignified returns of refugees in line with international standards.Over 670,000 Rohingyas fled violence in Myanmar since last August, joining an estimated 200,000 Rohingya who have sought shelter in Bangladesh, arriving in waves over the past decades.For the hospitality, protection and assistance provided to those refugees, UNHCR would like to extend its sincere thanks to the government and people of Bangladesh, according to a message received from Geneva.In the absence of a tripartite agreement between UNHCR, Myanmar and Bangladesh, UNHCR has continued to engage with both governments in negotiations on two separate Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs), meant to ensure that any future returns are conducted in line with the international standards of voluntariness, safety and dignity.UNHCR considers that conditions in Myanmar are not yet conducive for returns to be safe, dignified and sustainable.The responsibility for creating such conditions remains with the Myanmar authorities, and these must go beyond the preparation of physical infrastructure to facilitate logistical arrangements.Refugees in Bangladesh have said before considering return to Myanmar, they would need to see concrete progress in relation to their legal status and citizenship, security and their ability to enjoy basic rights at home in Rakhine state.UNHCR has continued to call on the Myanmar government to take concrete measures to address the root causes of displacement, in line with the recommendations of the Advisory Commission on Rakhine state.One step it could immediately take is to provide UNHCR and other relevant actors with full and unhindered access to refugees places of origin in Rakhine, which would enable UNHCR to assess the situation and provide information to refugees about conditions in the places of origin, as well as to monitor any possible future return and reintegration of refugees.Another practical measure would be to ease restrictions on movement for the internally displaced persons encamped in the central townships of Rakhine, which would also help to build confidence among refugees in Bangladesh.Such concrete measures would help demonstrate to refugees that the Myanmar government is committed to a sustainable solution.In Myanmar, together with the UN Development Programme (UNDP), UNHCR is in ongoing discussions with the Myanmar government on a tripartite agreement to outline the scope of cooperation between these agencies and the Myanmar government in Rakhine.The agreement would aim to set forth a framework for refugees voluntary repatriation in line with international standards, create conditions that are conducive to eventual voluntary repatriation, and provide humanitarian and development assistance for all people of Rakhine state.last_img read more

Latina Organizer Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez Enters Democratic Primary To Challenge Cornyn

first_img Share Image via Cristina for TexasCristina Tzintzún RamirezLeading Latina organizer Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez is launching a campaign for U.S. Senate, entering a Democratic primary to oust Republican John Cornyn that has steadily grown throughout the summer.The daughter of an immigrant mother, co-founder of the Workers Defense Project and founder of the progressive Latino youth group Jolt Texas, Tzintzún Ramirez argues she has the best story, experience and ideas to harness the energy of Texas’ ascendant voters, particularly young people of color. To do so, she will have the help of some of the top organizers from Beto O’Rourke’s 2018 U.S. Senate campaign, a potentially pivotal asset as the crowded field vies to build on O’Rourke’s closer-than-expected loss to GOP U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz.“I don’t think we have a reflection of those in power that represent the Texas we are today. I think I represent those ideals and the diversity of the state, and I want Texas to be a national leader in solving the major problems that our country faces,” Tzintzún Ramirez said in an interview, citing health care, immigration and climate change as major issues the state should be at the forefront of tackling.Tzintzún Ramirez made her candidacy official in a video Monday morning.The longtime organizer joins a primary lineup that is approaching a double-digit tally. Among the better-known contenders are former U.S. Rep. Chris Bell of Houston, Houston City Councilwoman Amanda Edwards, 2018 U.S. House candidate MJ Hegar, state Sen. Royce West of Dallas and Sema Hernandez, who was the runner-up to O’Rourke in the 2018 Senate primary.Tzintzún Ramirez welcomed a competitive nominating contest as healthy for Democrats, saying the candidates in the Senate race are “all essentially at the same starting place,” unknown to most voters statewide and thus forced to run on the merits of their platforms. Asked how she plans to distinguish herself, she pointed to her forthrightness on the issues and her record of mobilizing the kind of voters often overlooked by politicians.“I know how to speak to the diversity of this state,” Tzintzún Ramirez said.Tzintzún Ramirez could add a more progressive and confrontational voice to the primary. In the interview, she voiced support for Medicare for All, the single-payer health care proposal championed by U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., the two-time Democratic presidential candidate. At the same time, she said she would be pleased to start with a public option that would give people the choice of signing up for government-run health insurance.Tzintzún Ramirez also tore into Cornyn, repeatedly saying he should be “embarrassed” to represent Texas while not sufficiently addressing its biggest issues, such as its highest-in-the-nation uninsured rate. Discussing the recent El Paso shooting, Tzintzún Ramirez said Cornyn has “sat silently by” while President Donald Trump has used the kind of rhetoric that fueled the anti-immigrant attack, and the two have “created a target on the backs of immigrants and Latinos in this state.”As the primary caretaker for her 2-year-old son, Tzintzún Ramirez said it was a difficult decision to enter the Senate race. But much like when she started the Workers Defense Project when she was an undergraduate student at the University of Texas at Austin and Jolt Texas when she was several months pregnant, she said she felt compelled by broader forces.“Those were not the right personal times, but they were the right political moments to do that work, and I think this moment is no different,” she said.Tzintzún Ramirez had been the subject of a draft effort by a group of progressive operatives, including alumni of O’Rourke’s Senate bid. They will fill top positions on her campaign — Ginny Goldman, co-founder and former executive director of the Texas Organizing Project, will be campaign chair; Katelyn Coghlan, O’Rourke’s deputy field director, will be campaign manager; and Zack Malitz, O’Rourke’s field director, will be senior adviser. Alexa Sousa, O’Rourke’s distributed organizing director, will also be involved in the campaign.Additionally, Tzintzún Ramirez is working with Middle Seat, the digital firm that helped O’Rourke raise record-shattering amounts of money last cycle. Her campaign treasurer is Eugene Sepulveda, the Austin entrepreneur, philanthropist and Democratic fundraiser who chairs the Jolt Leadership Council.Tzintzún Ramirez has left Jolt for the campaign, and Jolt’s senior strategist, Antonio Arellano, has taken over as interim executive director.This piece was originally published in The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues. Disclosure: Eugene Sepulveda has been a financial supporter of The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan news organization that is funded in part by donations from members, foundations and corporate sponsors. Financial supporters play no role in the Tribune’s journalism. Find a complete list of them here.last_img read more

He is professor of radiation oncology at Rush University Medical Center and chair of the NRG Oncology Sarcoma Working Group.“This is one of few successful multi-institutional studies on localized sarcoma in almost a decade,” Wang said “It should provide oncologists with validation and evidence of this new radiotherapy approach that takes full advantage of rapidly developing technologies. The absence of marginal-field recurrence and favorable toxicity profiles suggest that parameters used in this study are appropriate for preoperative image-guided radiotherapy of extremity sarcoma,” Wang added.The study results came from a multi-year, multi-institution phase 2 clinical trial conducted by the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG), now conducting research as NRG Oncology.The RTOG 0630 trial studied more than 100 patients with extremity-based soft tissue sarcomas (STS) who received pre-surgical radiation delivered to a substantially smaller area than typically targeted when treating this type of cancer. Prior to tumor removal surgery, a series of daily pre-treatment images of the tumor were digitally integrated with previous scans to determine a custom-tailored radiation dose that minimized exposure to adjacent normal tissue. Assessments two years later showed that long-term side effects were 10.5 percent, significantly fewer than the 37 percent of patients in a previous study who received radiation to a larger target area.The trial was conducted over three years at 18 medical centers across the country.

VIDEO The best of Costa Rica craft beer

first_imgEvery good revolution starts as a crazy idea. When the first dedicated brewers began making cerveza artesanal in Costa Rica, they were met with legal and logistical roadblocks and widespread indifference from consumers who were content sipping on Pilsen and Imperial.But pioneers like Peter Gilman of Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing Company and Adolfo Marín of Cervecería Primate, Stiefel Pub and CASA Brew Garden continued to make beer, undeterred by the challenges.About six years into the craft beer movement, Costa Rica’s brewers have turned a once black-and-white scene into a kaleidoscope of options. From American IPAs to Saisons to Witbiers, they’ve opened up a whole new, hop-infused world to Costa Rican beer drinkers.Their products are slowly creeping into supermarket coolers and completely transforming areas like San José’s Barrio Escalante, which seems to add a new brewpub every few months.And though the scene here is young, it’s already well-accomplished. In last year’s Copa Cervezas de América Latin American beer competition, five Costa Rican beers took home medals, proving that the craft beer movement is not only here to stay, but also demands the attention and respect of the country’s thirsty patrons.Marín’s San Jose IPA won silver at last year’s awards in the American IPA category.“If you’re making something that you like, half of the battle has already been won,” Marín told The Tico Times in November. “And then if it tastes good, even better.”Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing Company also won a silver medal for its Malacrianza in the Strong Scotch Ale category, and Costa Rica Meadery won two silvers for its Passiflora and ChiCheMel Caribeño meads. The latter also won a silver medal in the sweet mead category at the Mazer Cup in 2015.Three other Tico beers won bronze medals at the Copa Cervezas de América competition last year: Calle Cimarrona’s Mascarada in the Wild Specialty Beer category; and Treintaycinco’s Pelona and Treintay© in the American IPA and English IPA categories, respectively.But receiving international recognition for their quality brews is just icing on the cake for local brewers, who through sweat and stamina are staking out their territory in Costa Rica’s beer market and winning over a steady stream of consumers.Don’t miss The Tico Times’ upcoming event “News and Brews: A Conversation about Costa Rica craft beer” on Saturday, May 14 at 5 p.m. at El Steinvorth in San José. Tickets are ₡10,000 ($19) and can be purchased in advance through our online store, by phone at 2258-1558 or at our offices in Barrio Amón, on Ave. 11, between calles 5 and 7.

UN rapporteur slams killings of Colombian rights defenders

first_imgRelated posts:US Supreme Court rejects Colombia Chiquita human rights case Colombia announces cease-fire deal to end 52-year conflict with FARC U.S. woman to be deported after living in airport in Colombia Colombian police bust child sex network run by Israelis A UN official called on the Colombian government to step up measures to protect human rights defenders following an upsurge in the number murdered since the signing of a peace agreement with former FARC guerrillas.Michel Forst, UN rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders, said in an interview late Monday that armed groups have filled a power vacuum left by rebels who disarmed after signing the November 2016 agreement.Those armed groups —an amalgam of political dissidents, drug traffickers, organized crime groups and paramilitaries— “are now the main perpetrators or attacks against defenders,” he said.“At the time there is a drastic drop in the number of homicides throughout the country, probably related to the peace process,” Forst told AFP. “There has been a sharp increase in the homicides of defenders.”Forst said the broad spectrum of aggressors also includes members of the security forces, as well as random strangers encouraged by “relatively high” rates of impunity.Flash Sale! Save 40% or more on top destinations for 48 hours only“I have been horrified to hear the accounts of Afro-Colombian and indigenous farmers describing the attacks they face without being able to put a name to the perpetrators,” Forst said.Right-wing President Ivan Duque, who took office in August, acknowledged the increase in activists’ murders, and pledged Monday to implement measures to prevent the killings.“In recent years the number of murders have been growing and therefore it is very important that there is a reaction from the state,” Duque said in a joint press conference with Forst late Monday.Forst promised to return to the country to monitor progress.Colombia’s Ombudsman’s Office said 311 rights defenders had been murdered between January 2016 and June 30 this year —one every three days.Thanks for reading The Tico Times.

Tunisia weighs new security approach as tourists flee

first_imgTourists stand near the scene of a shooting attack on Friday in Sousse, Tunisia, Saturday, June 27, 2015. The morning after a lone gunman killed dozens of people at a beach resort in Tunisia, busloads of tourists are heading to the nearby Enfidha-Hammamet airport hoping to return to their home countries. (AP Photo/Darko Vojinovic) Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home Mesa family survives lightning strike to home ___This story has been corrected to show the surname of the British tourist is Preece, not Price. A previous version of this story was corrected to show that the gunman killed 38 people, not 39.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. North Africa analyst Geoff Porter noted that in the short term, these measures will only drive the extremists underground and create a militarized feel to the country that might well discourage tourism.“Tunisia’s in a difficult position, you can harden a tourist site and make it more difficult to attack but the same measures would deter tourists,” he said. “Tourists don’t want to come and lie on a beach with guys with AK-47s.”And Tunisia needs these tourists, especially in the coastal resort areas like Sousse where it is the dominant industry. Tourist made up nearly 15 percent of gross domestic product in 2014 and it has been struggling to recover after the shocks of the Arab Spring revolution.The attack was claimed by the radical Islamic State group, which thousands of Tunisians, disaffected with the lack of opportunity in the wake of the 2011 overthrow of secular President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, have joined.The attack came the same day that a suicide bomber killed 27 people in a Shiite mosque in Kuwait and a man in France ran his truck into a warehouse and hung his employer’s severed head on the gate.The attack in Kuwait was also claimed by the Islamic State and on Saturday thousands of people took part in a mass funeral procession. Police said they are interrogating a number of suspects with possible links to the bombing, which was claimed by an affiliate of the Islamic State group. Extremists have increasingly attacked soldiers and politicians in Tunisia over the past few years, but it was only with the March museum attack that it began targeting the tourism life blood of the country that will only deepen its economic crisis.The presence of a few people still on the beaches a day after the attack does give some glimmers of hope, especially if world memory is short and people return attracted by the low prices and white sands of the beach.“We want to see our holiday out,” said Peter Phillips of Wales as he stood on the beach not far from where the attack happened.It all may hinge, however, on whether the government can put an end to these attacks, which senior security official Rafik Chelli called an “isolated incident” that is difficult to guard against and could happen anywhere.“If this attack doesn’t do it, any subsequent attack will,” Porter said. “It is hard to envision Tunisian tourism recovering from this attack and impossible to envision it recovering from a third one.”___Paul Schemm reported from Rabat. Associated Press reporters Elaine Ganley and Benjamin Wiacek in Sousse, Tunisia, and Shawn Pogatchnik in Dublin contributed to this report. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Sponsored Stories Top Stories 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist When a 24-year-old Master’s student at Kairouan University strolled on to the Sousse beach and pulled out a Kalashnikov assault rifle and grenades hidden inside his beach umbrella, he was sounding the death knell for Tunisia’s 2015 tourist season.Tunisian authorities identified the attacker as Seifeddine Rezgui, saying he killed 38 people, 15 of them British, as well as German, Irish, Belgian and Portuguese victims, and sent thousands of tourists fleeing to airports. The wounded included 24 Britons, seven Tunisians, three Belgians, and a German, Russian and Ukrainian.“It’s the first time I’ve ever been on holiday and feared for my life,” said British tourist Matthew Preece, adding it was his third time visiting Tunisia and likely his last. “So obviously you can’t come back somewhere it’s not safe.”Tourists and employees are returning home with tales of horror cowering in rooms or offices as the killer stalked through the hotel wearing shorts.European countries and tour operators sent planes to evacuate their citizens. By midday Saturday, nine flights had whisked away 1,400 people, according to Mohammed Walid Ben Ghachem, manager of the Enfidha-Hammamet Airport near Sousse. At the Imperial Marhaba Hotel itself, the guests had left, according to manager Mohammed Becheur.“We may have zero clients today, but we will keep our staff,” he said, lamenting the 75-percent occupancy rate the day before. “This summer will be hard, but we are very confident for the long term.”On the beach, there were still a few tourists from neighboring hotels. Some laid flowers at the site of the attack while police patrolling on horseback moved down the beach and security boats patrolled the waters.Armed men on the beach may well become a more common sight in Tunisia, as Prime Minister Habib Essid announced a raft of new security measures that many have questioned why they weren’t implemented after the last horrific attack against tourists in March at the National Bardo Museum that killed 22.“It’s clear that the government’s security policy requires a massive revision, in the sense that most of the tourist sites weren’t well-protected,” Tunisian security analyst Alaya Allani said. “If the measures announced are well implemented, we could reduce but not eradicate terrorism.”Essid called up the army reserves and said there would now be armed men in the hotels and at tourists sites and he also promised to crack down on unregulated mosques that preached extremist ideas and close down organizations with shadowy funding and extremist links. TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — Thousands of tourists fled from Tunisia on Saturday after the country’s worst terrorist attack killed 38 people — including 15 Britons — as the government struggles to prevent future jihadi attacks against the all-important tourism sector.New measures to increase the numbers of troops on the streets and crack down on organizations with radical links, however, won’t bring the tourists back in the short-term, further threatening the fragile economy.
