UN Special Adviser on Genocide Prevention visits Rwanda

Juan E. Mendez was appointed two years ago to provide early-warnings to the Secretary-General and the Security Council about potential situations that could develop into genocide, and to make recommendations to the Council about how the UN can prevent these events.His appointment made good on Mr. Annan’s pledge to designate an official to help prevent genocide from ever happening again, made around the commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the Rwandan massacres, which targeted ethnic Tutus and Hutu moderates.Meanwhile, a new investment guide for Rwanda, introduced Wednesday in Geneva by UNCTAD, said there are plenty of business opportunities in the country for foreign investors that are obscured by lingering associations of the violence a dozen years ago.The guide, produced in conjunction with the International Chamber of Commerce, said the country suffered from a “misleading image as unsafe place,” when in fact crimes rates – and corruption – are low.The UNCTAD investment guide said Rwanda presented untapped opportunities in agricultural production, importation and that there is a “large upside” to the beginnings of a revived tourism industry, with the country’s “unique mountain gorillas” as a potential attraction.The government, which has adopted business-friendly policies, is focused on attracting investors in information and communication technologies, which could locate in a TechnoPark, being set up near the capital, Kigali. The report acknowledged though that the supply and dependability of electricity remains a problem. read more

It will do that, it said, through a share repurchase program.The company has been under pressure from activist investor Nelson Peltz to reward investors.“In 2015, we remain focused on generating superior returns for our shareholders, including through return of capital from the expected Chemours dividend, while positioning DuPont for our next stage of growth,” said CEO Ellen Kullman.For the quarter, the company reported net income of $683 million, or 74 cents per share, up from $185 million, or 20 cents per share, for the fourth quarter of 2013. The latest results included a one-time, pretax restructuring charge of $299 million, which was partially offset by a one-time gain of $240 million on the sale of copper fungicides and land management businesses within DuPont’s agriculture unit. The company also reported a one-time gain of $210 million from insurance recoveries involving customer claims related to the use of its discontinued Imprelis herbicide.Adjusted earnings for the quarter were 71 cents per share, up from 59 cents and meeting the consensus estimate of Wall Street analysts surveyed by FactSet.Sales for the quarter totalled $7.4 billion, down from $7.75 billion for the final quarter of 2013. Analysts expected revenue of $7.8 billion.Sales were down across all of DuPont’s business segments, mostly due to portfolio changes and negative currency effects, but volumes were up in all regions except Latin America and in all business units with the exception of electronics and communications.For the full year, DuPont earned $3.6 billion, or $3.92 per share on sales of $34.7 billion, down from $4.8 billion, or $5.19 per share on sales of 35.7 billion. The company attributed the 3 per cent decline in sales to weak agricultural markets, portfolio changes and negative currency impacts.Operating earnings for the year increased from $3.88 per share to $4.01 a share, meeting analyst estimates. read more

The Latest Pennsylvania health company restoring network

The Latest: Pennsylvania health company restoring network NEW YORK, N.Y. – The Latest on a widespread cyberattack that is affecting companies and government systems (all times EDT):6:20 p.m.A Pennsylvania health care system says it is taking steps to restore its computer network after being hit by a ransomware attack that was carried out globally.Heritage Valley Health System says the attack Tuesday affected its two hospitals west of Pittsburgh as well as satellite operations.Patients reported on social media that some surgeries had to be rescheduled. A hospital spokeswoman would say only that operational changes had to be made.A Wellsville, Ohio, woman was at one of Heritage Valley’s hospitals to have her gallbladder removed when she heard a voice over a loudspeaker directing staff to come to a command centre.Brenda Pisarsky told The Associated Press she noticed computer monitors were off and saw nurses scurrying around with stacks of paperwork.She says she had already been prepped for surgery so doctors were able to go through with her operation. But she said she was told some other patients’ procedures had to be rescheduled.___5:15 p.m.A series of tweets issued by Ukraine’s cyberpolice unit says the ransomware that has caused global havoc may have first spread through a rogue update to a piece of Ukrainian accounting software called MEDoc.Several vendors — including Kaspersky Lab and Cisco — have already identified MEDoc as a likely vector for the initial infections. Ukraine’s cyberpolice said Tuesday that the rogue update occurred around 10:30 a.m. local time, seeding the infection to an undisclosed number of organizations across the country. Then, just as a few dropped matches can feed a forest fire, the ransomware spread rapidly from there.In a lengthy statement posted to Facebook, MEDoc acknowledged having been hacked but said it was not responsible for having seeded the rogue program.Ukraine’s cyberpolice unit acknowledged the company’s statement but stood by its analysis. It stressed that it was not attributing blame to the company.___4:45 p.m.The German company whose email service was used to help co-ordinate payments linked to the latest surge of ransom software says it pulled the plug on the account before news of the outbreak became widely known.In a blog post, the Posteo service said it blocked the email address “immediately” after learning that it was being used as a point of contact for the ransomware’s presumed creators. The post said the block happened around midday in Germany, well before reports began circulating about problems linked to its spread.While the block prevented the hackers behind the ransomware release from capitalizing on the explosive infection rate, it may also strand victims with no obvious way of retrieving files scrambled by the rogue program.Posteo, based in Berlin, did not return an email seeking further comment.___4:30 p.m.How the ransomware was first spread isn’t known for sure, but several experts singled out Ukrainian accounting software called MEDoc, which in a brief message posted to its website acknowledged having been hacked.In a lengthier statement posted to Facebook, however, the company said that it was not responsible for having seeded the rogue program.“We can say that the MEDoc system cannot infect your computer with viruses when it updates,” the company said.___3 p.m.The head of a top Ukranian cybersecurity firm says it’s too early to say if his country was singled out as the prime target but that its institutions, long a target of Russian hackers, may have been compromised through attrition.Victor Zhora, CEO of Infosafe IT in Kyiv, says he believes the ransomware, which attacks Microsoft operating systems from Windows XP to Windows 10, was previously seeded and time-activated.“It seems the virus is spreading all over Europe and I’m afraid it can harm the whole world,” he said. Zhora’s firm did triage on a well-co-ordinated attack blamed on pro-Russian hackers that tried to thwart the country’s May 2014 election.Zhora said the current ransomware, which propagates across networks, demands $300 in Bitcoin. He says it’s too early for official confirmation of the targets in Ukraine but local media are reporting ATMs and some gasoline distribution to filling stations have been affected.Cyberattacks blamed on pro-Russia hackers have twice taken down sizeable portions of Ukraine’s power grid.___2:30 p.m.Security experts say Tuesday’s cyberattack shares something in common with last month’s WannaCry attack: Both spread by using digital break-in tools purportedly created by the U.S. National Security Agency and recently leaked to the web.Security vendors Bitdefender Labs and Kaspersky Labs say the NSA exploit, known as EternalBlue, is allowing the malware to spread inside an organization’s network. Other than that, the latest malware is different from WannaCry.Organizations should be protected if they had installed a fix that Microsoft issued in March.But Chris Wysopal, chief technology officer at the security firm Veracode, says that’s only the case if 100 per cent of computers were patched. He says that if one computer gets infected, the new malware has a backup mechanism to spread to patched computers within the network as well.Wysopal says the attack seems to be hitting large industrial companies that “typically have a hard time patching all of their machines because so many systems simply cannot have down time.”Organizations hit include the Russian oil company Rosneft and the Danish oil and shipping company AP Moller-Maersk.___2:15 p.m.A hospital and health care system based in western Pennsylvania says it is dealing with a widespread cyberattack.A spokeswoman for Heritage Valley Health System says the attack Tuesday is affecting the organization’s entire health system and employees are working to ensure safe patient care continues.Heritage Valley is a $480 million network that provides care for residents of Allegheny, Beaver, Butler and Lawrence counties, in Pennsylvania; parts of eastern Ohio; and the panhandle of West Virginia.It wasn’t immediately clear if the cyberattack was related to the outbreak of malicious data-scrambling software that appears to be causing mass disruption across Europe Tuesday.Also affected is New Jersey-based Merck, the second-largest drugmaker in the United States with extensive operations in the Philadelphia area.Merck confirmed its computer network was “compromised” as part of the global attack.___Previously datelined Kyiv, Ukraine (all times local)7:10 p.m.The second-largest drugmaker in the United States is confirming it’s been affected by a cyberattack.In a message sent using its verified Twitter account, Merck confirmed Tuesday that its computer network was “compromised” as part of a global attack.Officials said the Kenilworth, New Jersey-based company was investigating the incident but provided no further details.Merck has global locations including in Ukraine, where a new and highly virulent outbreak of malicious data-scrambling software causing mass disruption across Europe appeared to be hitting especially hard.Company and government officials reported serious intrusions at the Ukrainian power grid, banks and government offices, where one senior official posted a photo of a darkened computer screen and the words, “the whole network is down.”Dutch-based transport company TNT Express, which was taken over last year by FedEx, also said Tuesday that it is suffering computer disruptions. Spokesman Cyrille Gibot says that “like many other companies and institutions around the world, we are experiencing interference with some of our systems within the TNT network. We are assessing the situation and are implementing remediation steps as quickly as possible and we regret any inconvenience to our customers.” He declined further comment.___5:45 p.m.Ukraine’s prime minister says that a cyberattack affecting his country is “unprecedented,” but “vital systems haven’t been affected.”A new and highly virulent outbreak of malicious data-scrambling software appears to be causing mass disruption across Europe, hitting Ukraine especially hard.Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman also said on Facebook that “our IT experts are doing their job and protecting critical infrastructure … The attack will be repelled and the perpetrators will be tracked down.”Company and government officials reported serious intrusions at the Ukrainian power grid, banks and government offices, where one senior official posted a photo of a darkened computer screen and the words, “the whole network is down.” Russia’s Rosneft oil company also reported falling victim to hacking, as did Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk.___4:35 p.m.Hackers have caused widespread disruption across Europe, hitting Ukraine especially hard.Company and government officials reported major disruption to the Ukrainian power grid, banks and government offices. Russia’s Rosneft energy company also reported falling victim to hacking, as did shipping company A.P. Moller-Maersk, which said every branch of its business was affected.Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Pavlo Rozenko on Tuesday posted a picture of a darkened computer screen to Twitter, saying that the computer system at the government’s headquarters has been shut down.There’s very little information about who might be behind the disruption, but technology experts who examined screenshots circulating on social media said it bears the hallmarks of ransomware, the name given to programs that hold data hostage by scrambling it until a payment is made. by The Associated Press Posted Jun 27, 2017 2:53 pm MDT Last Updated Jun 27, 2017 at 4:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

The brains trust

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A chance meeting between two Greek Australian professors spawned not only a breakthrough in the way autism is diagnosed but a realisation that two brains are better than one. Professor Stan Skafidas and Professor Christos Pantelis have combined their knowledge to enable them to uncover new discoveries that required novel ways to look at the problem. By joining Professor Skafidas’ understanding of neural engineering with Professor Pantelis’ psychiatric expertise, these medical minds – along with their teams – have the capacity to unlock many secrets of the brain. “I think the coming together of expertise from two centres with different areas of expertise is a fabulous way forward,” explains Professor Pantelis. As it stands, medical research is usually conducted in a vacuum of independent discipline. Both professors champion this new style of research. “Working together in this way hasn’t happened very much until now, but I think it has to be the way forward if we are going to understand a complex structure like the brain. When expertise from many disciplines comes together in this way, we can see the problem in new ways and this can lead to new findings,” said Professor Skafidas. “By working together, they have identified an early genetic test to predict a child’s risk of autism. This is the first known blood test of its kind to indicate whether or not a child is likely to develop autism. This way, doctors can detect those at increased risk for autism and potentially start treatments earlier. But the professors are keen to point out that the test is not diagnostic; rather, it gives clinicians an index of level of risk for autism and therefore has to be used in conjunction with traditional diagnostic measures. The test came about organically as the professors were focused on first understanding the genetic causes of autism. “We know that autism can affect a number of members of one family. We also know that in identical twins there is a very high likelihood that both will have the disorder if one is affected. This tells us that genes are important, but we also know that one gene isn’t enough to cause autism.” The professors decided to embark on a study to examine how lots of genes came together to cause autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Together, they examined the genes of over 8,000 people, including those with ASD, their relatives and others not affected, to see if they could correctly identify who had the disorder based on their genetics. And they succeeded. “Most people have been looking at these disorders with the idea to find the ‘magic’ gene that explains this disorder but what’s unique with what we’ve been doing is saying well we know that these groups of genes are important for a particular function and let’s test them as a group in order to try and understand which functions are actually potentially contributing to the disorder,” Professor Skafidas told Neos Kosmos. Using data from 2,599 individuals with ASD and 2,587 of their relatives from Autism Genetic Resource Exchange (AGRE) and Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) as well as 2,930 unaffected individuals from the Wellcome Trust Birth Cohort, the researchers identified 237 genetic markers (SNPs) in 146 genes and related cellular pathways that either contribute to or protect an individual from developing ASD. The discovery of the combination of contributing and protective gene markers and their interaction helped to develop a very promising predictive ASD test as the test is based on measuring both the risk and protective genetic markers of ASD. As the risk markers increase the score on the genetic test also increased, while the protective markers decrease the score, therefore, the higher the overall score the higher the risk of ASD. “[The test] gives us a measure of the level of risk, and that I think will be helpful to clinicians when they are assessing young people,” Professor Pantelis points out while emphasizing that this test assesses the risk for ASD and it is not a diagnostic test. The exciting aspect for the professors is the ability to link the two disciplines to uncover more research and breakthroughs such as this genetic test for autism. In the future, the professors want to do what they have done for autism for other mental disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, attention deficit disorder, depression, and more. Professor Pantelis wants to start with looking at the area of schizophrenia, as it also has a high genetic component like autism. Schizophrenia is an area that interests Professor Pantelis and his team. As the Scientific Director of the Melbourne Neuropsychiatry Centre, he leads a team of researchers that have been undertaking neuroimaging and neuropsychological work in schizophrenia and psychosis, and other psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders since 1993 after returning from 10 years working in London and Washington DC. His work has focused on brain structural and functional changes during the transition to psychosis. His group was the first to describe progressive brain structural changes at psychosis onset. As the Director for Centre for Neural Engineering, Professor Skafidas has led NICTA’s research into the development of next-generation retinal stimulation prostheses – put simply, the bionic eye. Just about to start human trials, Professor Skafidas has been part of a team researching the possibility of combining wireless technology and ophthalmics to overcome macular degeneration, the single biggest cause of blindness in the developed world. Together, these two Greek Australian professors are leading the way in neural research and paving the way forward to show that in medical research two brains are well and truly better than one. “That’s a really important piece in the puzzle,” says Professor Pantelis. “What we want to do is try and supervise and nurture young people in this space between the disciplines were they can learn both psychiatric research, biological research and engineering research and bring the two together and understand the language of both to try and create something which we couldn’t do otherwise.”last_img read more

Les scanners cérébraux pour anticiper lAlzheimer

first_imgLes scanners cérébraux pour anticiper l’AlzheimerPlusieurs études distinctes ont conclu que des scanners cérébraux permettraient de détecter des années plus tôt la maladie d’Alzheimer chez une personne. Un appareil capable d’établir ce type de diagnostique devrait être au point dans les douze prochains mois.Des chercheurs ont réussi à mettre au point une technique qui permettrait de prévoir quelles personnes sont susceptibles d’être atteintes de maladies débilitantes dix ans avant que les premiers symptômes n’apparaissent. Grâce à cela, il serait possible de mettre en place un traitement et de se préparer avant que les effets dévastateurs ne se manifestent.À lire aussiScanner cérébral avec ou sans injection : définition, déroulement et risquesThe Telegraph rapporte que plusieurs équipes de recherches à travers le monde travaillent sur l’utilisation possible des scanners obtenus grâce au PET (pour “positron emission tomography”), un matériel d’imagerie de pointe. De nouvelles études réalisées par les universités américaine et australienne du Texas et de Melbourne viennent d’être publiées. Celles-ci affirment être parvenues à une technique performante.Le principe consiste à contrôler le développement de la bêta-amyloïde, une protéine connue comme étant liée aux démences et aux maladies cognitives. Elle serait potentiellement à l’origine des blocages entraînant des problèmes dans les processus de réflexion. Les études menées ont également pu mettre en évidence, avec dix ans d’avance, la présence d’images cérébrales qui rendent les scientifiques capables de prédire une maladie d’Alzheimer future.Le professeur David Brooks du Collège impérial de Londres s’enthousiasme : “S’il y avait une manière de traiter la protéine amyloïde, cela serait vraiment prometteur”. Car utiliser les images des scanners permet non seulement d’anticiper sur le diagnostique et donc sur la prise en charge, mais permet également d’apporter des indications sur ce qui est en train de se dérouler au sein du cerveau lorsque la maladie est déclarée.Le 13 juin 2011 à 18:29 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

State plans to sell Sheldon Jackson Museum in costcutting efforts

first_imgThe Sheldon Jackson Museum and the neighboring former Stratton Library may be sold by the Division of Alaska Libraries, Archives in Museums in an effort to cut state expenditures by the Dunleavy administration. (KCAW Photo/Enrique Pérez de la Rosa)Sitka Senator Bert Stedman has one word for the governor’s plan to sell of the state-owned Sheldon Jackson Museum: Crazy.The state Division of Alaska Libraries, Archives, and Museums announced late last week that it is looking to sell the Sheldon Jackson Museum. That’s after Governor Mike Dunleavy ordered state agencies to dispose of underutilized properties in an effort to reduce state spending.In total, the state owns over 1,800 structures with a booked property value of about $7 billion, according to the administration. Selling non-essential or under-utilized properties could mean savings in utility and upkeep costs.The Sheldon Jackson Museum was established in Sitka in 1895 by Presbyterian missionary Sheldon Jackson, who had traveled the Alaska territory as the General Agent of Education. It is the oldest museum collection of indigenous culture in the state. It was placed on the National Historic Register in 1972, and later acquired and merged with the Alaska State Museum.In a press conference, Senator Bert Stedman said he is not interested in selling any state museums. He says the artifacts kept by the Sheldon Jackson Museum are invaluable.“The history of Alaska is extremely rich and we need to preserve that for future Alaskans and hand it down to our children and our children’s children, not liquidate stuff,” he said.Stedman is the Chair of the Senate Finance Committee and represents Sitka, Ketchikan, Petersburg, Wrangell and many village communities. Although the future of the artifacts housed in the museum is unclear, he told reporters he assumed sale of the museum would include the artifacts inside.“There is no way we are selling state artifacts and our museums,” Stedman said. “This is crazy. This is crazy stuff. We can fix our budget problems with the marine highway and education and all this other stuff and still keep our society intact.”In addition to selling the Sheldon Jackson Museum, the state is listing the former Stratton Library located next door.Already this year, Senator Stedman has expressed opposition to the proposed sale of the Mt. Edgecumbe High School Aquatics Center. The $26 million pool facility has not yet opened to the public but is already being utilized by students of the state-run school.“They can sell the pool with me in it when they sell the governor’s mansion with him in it,” Stedman said in an interview with KCAW in February.last_img read more

Jeff Bezos Reveals 3 Strategies for Amazons Success

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Register Now » 3 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Globalcenter_img “It remains Day 1.” That’s how Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, signed off in his 2018 letter to shareholders. He’s been propagating the “day 1” mantra for decades, and it’s meant as a reminder that Amazon should never stop acting like a startup — even though the company now boasts more than 560,000 employees and more than 100 million members of Amazon Prime, the company’s paid service for free shipping on select items.Here are some of the most useful nuggets of wisdom Bezos shared in his letter and during a recent onstage interview.1. Standards are contagious.Bezos says he believes high standards are teachable rather than intrinsic. “Bring a new person onto a high standards team, and they’ll quickly adapt,” he writes. “The opposite is also true.”If a company or team operates with low standards, a new employee will often — perhaps even unwittingly — adjust their work ethic accordingly. He also says that high standards in one area don’t automatically translate to high standards in another — it’s important for people to discover their “blind spots.” Try making a list of your duties, then ask trusted colleagues to tell you which responsibilities are your greatest strengths. If certain things from the list don’t come up during the conversation, it might be useful to think about how you can up your personal standards in those areas.Related: 22 Weird Things We’ve Learned About Jeff Bezos2. Set clear, realistic expectations.If you’re looking to raise your standards in a particular area, the first course of action is to outline what quality looks like in that area. The second is to set realistic expectations for yourself — or for your team — regarding how much work it will take to achieve that level of quality.Exhibit A: You won’t find a single PowerPoint presentation at an Amazon company meeting. Instead, teams write six-page narrative memos to prepare everyone else for the meeting. Bezos says the quality of the memos vary greatly because writers don’t always recognize the scope of the work required to reach high standards.“They mistakenly believe a high-standards, six-page memo can be written in one or two days or even a few hours, when really it might take a week or more!” Bezos writes. 3. Stay involved with the people you’re serving.Whether you’re selling a product or service, it’s a good idea to make sure you never lose touch when it comes to the people you’re serving — no matter how high up the ladder you climb.Bezos says he still reads emails from his public inbox (jeff@amazon.com) as a way to keep his finger on the pulse of what’s happening with Amazon customers. He says he believes focusing on what customers are saying is much more important for success than focusing on what competitors are doing, and he often compares customer feedback to company data to see where they misalign.“When the anecdotes and the data disagree,” Bezos said at a recent leadership forum at the George W. Bush Presidential Center, “the anecdotes are usually right.”Related: 16 Incredible Amazon Prime Facts and Stats April 23, 2018last_img read more

Westin Hotels Resorts has unveiled its first glo

first_imgWestin Hotels & Resorts has unveiled its first global brand campaign in more than five years, with a $30 million dollar, integrated advertising campaign – Let’s Rise – that the brand says communicates Westin’s commitment to the wellbeing of its guests before, during and after their stay.The campaign is inspired by wellness travel trends, articulated in a new global study conducted in partnership with StudyLogic that surveyed travellers in North America, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Germany, the United Arab Emirates and China. The results showed a shift in the way today’s travellers prioritise their wellbeing. With less time and more disruptors on the road, the study says travellers are reinventing business and leisure travel to put things like fitness first, as they pursue mindfulness and adventure. Nearly 3 in 4 travellers report they have trouble maintaining their routine on the road, over 60% say they sleep less, 65% say they exercise less, and 15% report increased stress levels on holidays.Thirty percent of those surveyed in Germany and more than 20% in U.A.E. say wellbeing enables them to feel more in control, while nearly 15% globally say it reduces their stress levels. Almost one in four of those surveyed in Germany and North America say wellness allows them to be better in business; in Mexico and the U.K., 1 in 4 say wellness enables them to feel happier.The Let’s Rise campaign will be featured in broadcast, digital, radio and out-of-home channels, with print placements to follow later this year. The Let’s Rise mantra will also serve as an anchor for the wellness programmes and partnerships that roll out for guests and associates throughout the year.Westin continues to evolve its programs with the increasing global demand for wellbeing and the holistic role it plays in peoples’ lives. This year, hotels around the world will unveil updates to the signature 24/7 WestinWORKOUT® fitness studios, reflecting how people are exercising today with more stretching, strength and core equipment.The brand will continue to grow its Gear Lending partnership with New Balance, giving guests access to workout gear without the hassle of packing it, and introduce additional RunWESTIN™ Concierges, who encourage runners of all levels to grab a running map and join them on scenic routes through cities, along beachfronts and amid rural landscapes.Westin will also introduce a complimentary Sleep Well Lavender Balm bedside amenity, infused with the calming essential oils of lavender and chamomile. This is the latest in a series of sleep offerings that promise a better slumber for travellers, including the iconic Westin Heavenly® Bed.Image: Westin Mumbai Garden City wellnessWestinlast_img read more
