India slams Paks JK narrative

first_imgGENEVA: Revocation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status was a sovereign decision taken by the Indian Parliament, and the country cannot accept any interference in its internal affairs, India on Tuesday asserted at the UN Human Rights Council, while vigorously rejecting Pakistan’s “malicious” campaign on the issue.Secretary (East) in the External Affairs Ministry Vijay Thakur Singh, in a clear reference to Pakistan, said there was a need to call out those who are misusing the UNHRC for malicious political agenda under the garb of human rights.

She said the recent legislative measures taken by India in Jammu and Kashmir were within the framework of its Constitution. “These decisions were taken by our Parliament after a full debate that was televised and enjoyed widespread support. We wish to reiterate that this sovereign decision, like other legislation passed by Parliament, is entirely internal to India. No country can accept interference in its internal affairs, certainly not India,” Singh said. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from ThursdayEarlier on Tuesday, Pakistan – which has been making repeated unsuccessful efforts to flag Jammu and Kashmir at various international forums – made its pitch at the meet for an investigation by the global body after making a series of allegations against India. Pointing to the arrest of political leaders and the restrictions in Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had also hinted at the consequences of such measures in a “nuclearised” Southeast Asia. Earlier on the day, India also objected to the reference made to Jammu and Kashmir in a China-Pakistan joint statement issued after Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s visit to Islamabad. External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar also talked about the China-Pakistan economic corridor in Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir, asserting that India is “resolutely opposed” to any actions by other countries to change the status quo in the region. Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi left his country red-faced on Tuesday by referring to Jammu and Kashmir as an “Indian state” following his speech at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) session here. Till date, Pakistan, in all its official communication, has been referring to Jammu and Kashmir as “Indian Administered Kashmir”. With agency inputslast_img read more

King Mohammed VI Reiterates His Resolve to Build Strong Maghreb Union

Rabat – King Mohammed VI on Wednesday reiterated His resolve to see a strong Maghreb Union built on the firm foundation of solid bilateral relations and integrated economic projects, noting that the situation is such that Maghreb citizens do not understand or accept such a state of affairs.“As regards the Maghreb, I should like to say, once again, that I keenly look forward to seeing a strong union built on the firm foundation of solid bilateral relations and integrated economic projects,” the Sovereign said in a speech to the Nation on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of His enthronement.“I personally believe that disputes are not inevitable and that they are quite normal in all communities,” the King said, citing as example the European Union. “There had been disagreements between EU members, but the breaking point is hardly ever reached.” “What is regrettable in the Maghreb, however, is that a dispute is allowed to continue for the purpose of disrupting the evolution of the Maghreb Union,” king Mohammed VI said.For the King, whatever the magnitude of the dispute, it should not, for instance, be used as a pretext for the continued closure of the borders. He said that “The situation is such that Maghreb citizens do not understand or accept such a state of affairs.”He also recalled that Morocco has been calling for more than six years now for a solution to this “odd situation,” underlining that the response to all of Morocco’s constructive initiatives has been a stubborn, systematic refusal which is not only inconsistent with the logic of history and legitimacy, but also out of step with our peoples’ natural entitlement to human interaction and economic exchange. read more

Somalia sexual violence must be subject to criminal justice says UN expert

Independent Expert on the Situation of Human Rights in Somalia Bahame Tom Mukariya Nyanduga. UN Photo/Ilyas Ahmed The Independent Expert also reiterated the need to address the human rights challenges that journalists and media in Somalia face. He warned that the Media Law must not be used as a tool to harass journalists, but rather to ensure respect for the rights to freedom of opinion and expression. He noted with satisfaction the Government’s commitment to adopt the National Human Rights Commission Bill, establishing an independent National Human Rights Institution before the end of its tenure, and urged that this commitment be met. “However, another bill, the Counter Terrorism Bill, could potentially negatively affect the enjoyment of human rights,” Mr. Nyanduga said. “I urge the authorities to ensure that this bill conforms to international human rights guarantees in accordance with Somalia’s international human rights obligations and the revised Federal Constitution. To be effective in fighting terrorism, the law must be firmly entrenched in human rights.” AMISOM’s role in SomaliaThe Independent Expert commended the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) for the role it continues to play in the country. He noted its commitment to comply with human rights and international humanitarian law, including ensuring accountability for violations committed by its forces. Regarding the incident on the killing of the four civilians by AMISOM forces in Bullo Mareer, Lower Shabelle, the expert urged the Mission to conduct thorough, independent investigations and make the findings of its inquiries public. In this regard, he welcomed the plan by the UN and AMISOM to hold the first UN Human Rights Due Diligence Policy implementation review workshop on 26 and 27 April, urging that stronger collaboration on the ground will foster compliance with human rights and international humanitarian law, which is a shared objective for both the United Nations and the African Union. Independent experts or special rapporteurs are appointed by the Geneva-based Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. “I call on the Government to prioritize the creation and implementation of a twin strategy: to enhance the capacity of the judiciary and the Somali Police force, and to prohibit clan and traditional elders from resolving or adjudicating such cases,” said the UN Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in Somalia, Bahame Tom Nyanduga, in a press release. “There is also a crucial need to create human rights awareness among clan elders and religious leaders about women’s rights, as one way of facilitating change within communities,” he added. Mr. Nyanduga began his visit to Somalia on 16 April. During his mission, he visited Mogadishu, Kismayo and Baidoa, and met the Speaker of the Federal Parliament, Federal Government authorities in Mogadishu, representatives of Jubbaland state, and the South West state.On Saturday, at the end of his third mission to the country, Mr. Nyanduga noted that the Xeer Somali traditional dispute resolution system continues to play a key role in the country, given that rule of law institutions are still being established. He was concerned to learn that traditional elders adjudicate sexual and gender-based violence cases, such as rape, due to the absence of a fully functioning criminal justice system in many parts of Somalia. He called for the adoption of the Sexual Offences Bill during the forthcoming session of Parliament to further guarantee the protection of women’s rights and also urged the Government to implement the recommendations arising from Somalia’s 2016 Universal Periodic Review before the Human Rights Council, including the adoption of a moratorium on the death penalty. Mr. Nyanduga commended the Federal and regional authorities and Parliament for committing themselves to holding elections later this year, widening the electoral base and ensuring that a 30 per cent women representation is met. However, he expressed concern that representation of youth, minorities and persons with disabilities, is not similarly guaranteed. read more

From valedictorian to captain Browning excels on and off field

At 6-foot-4-inches tall and 313 pounds, Bryant Browning doesn’t look like the typical scholar, but when he’s not opening running lanes or protecting the quarterback, he’s making the grade. A three-year starter on the offensive line, and one of six team captains, Browning has been named a semi-finalist for the 2010 William V. Campbell Trophy, commonly known as the Academic Heisman. “I’m definitely honored. It’s a very prestigious award,” Browning said. “I like the recognition that you worked hard till the end throughout your college career.” As a fifth-year marketing major and Big Ten All-Academic athlete, Browning’s education has always been very important to him. “When I first started playing sports my parents and grandparents always reminded me that school came first,” Browning said. “I had an older brother that always did well in school while he played sports, so I guess I always tried to follow behind him and always tried to keep my grades up and do the best I can.” The valedictorian of his graduating class, Browning played at Cleveland Glenville High School, where he was an All-State offensive lineman and helped lead Glenville to the regional finals in both his junior and senior years. With Glenville being known for producing high-caliber football players like Ted Ginn Jr. and Troy Smith, Browning was initially overshadowed by two of his high school teammates Ray Small and Robert Rose. “I don’t know, I feel that coming from Glenville we all have a lot of talent,” Browning said. “Personally I felt that if I came in to Ohio State with an open mind and was willing to work, that things were going to be fine.” Browning was redshirted his freshman year while Small and Rose saw early playing time. Though as time went on, Browning became a starter in his third year while Small and Rose never realized their full potential and fell out of the lime light. Having always won a Big Ten Championship and been undefeated against Michigan in his four years here, Browning still has a lot of unfinished business. “I want to win another Big Ten championship, beat Michigan again, and also go undefeated and win a national championship,” Browning said. “I had a taste of it my first couple years here, but never really got all the way through with it.” Browning said that his years at OSU have gone by too fast, and that he hopes he left a legacy here. “I guess if there’s one thing, I’d like to be remembered as a great teammate,” Browning said. “Someone who cared about the younger players and tried to teach them things whenever possible, a guy who you could always come to and count on when things weren’t going great for you.” After his playing days at OSU are over, Browning wants to try and play in the NFL, but says that if that doesn’t work out he may try to go to graduate school in marketing or law school. “I just hope to have a successful life in anything I try to do,” Browning said. “I just know that I have to be willing to work at it if I want things to turn out the right way.” read more

Fuel for your project power supply

first_imgRon Miller, Principal at Reliant Energy Solutions LLC, asks what is the first thing we evaluate when looking at power supply alternatives for an industrial client with a large power requirement? Is it 1) site, 2) engineering, procurement, and construction companies, 3) independent power producers, 4) turbine vendors, 5) grid connections, or 6) fuel supply, logistics, and infrastructure?“In my evaluations of power supply alternatives for industrial companies with special emphasis in developing countries, there is one over-riding conclusion: reliable fuel supply drives the energy generation economic engine.“Evaluating several different fuels including LNG, natural gas, diesel, heavy fuel oil, and LPGs among others, the best project outcomes are those where fuel supply, pricing, logistics, and infrastructure is given an extensive amount of time during the analysis stage.“I assessed the 20-year costs of generating power from multiple fuels and placed each fuel’s costs into three separate net present value (NPV) buckets of 1) capital, 2) operating and maintenance, and 3) fuel. Within a range of 65% to 85% for all fuels, fuel cost was the largest component of the NPV of power generation costs.“So if 65% to 85% of your final power generation cost is one item, shouldn’t you spend a corresponding amount of time in your analysis stage fully understanding this key determinant for a successful power project? In developing countries where power generation infrastructure may not exist or does not exist at the same level as is found in North America and Europe, fuel analysis becomes even more important.“One of the key questions for fuel importation in developing countries is the draft at existing ports to allow larger vessels to dock at the jetty. Can larger ocean-going tankers dock at the port for off-loading, or is the port’s draft too shallow, thus forcing a Single Point Mooring (SPM) system or Conventional Buoy Mooring (CBM) system to be constructed at substantial capital expense?“Once fuel can be imported, sufficient onshore storage capacity should exist, or must be built to off-load the entire fuel cargo from the larger ships. Additionally, the throughput capacity of the pipeline from SPM/CBM must allow a rapid unloading of the fuel from ship to shore to eliminate steep demurrage costs for the project.“Availability and reliability of fuel supply plays a much larger share of concern in developing country power projects than in the rest of the world. Consequently, analysing multiple fuel supply alternatives with their attendant pricing, availability, and off-loading, storage and logistics capabilities is essential. Although optionality in the fuels that the selected generation equipment can accept may reduce the efficiency with a higher heat rate, the risk of no fuel for the facility and its huge opportunity costs for the industrial company can be substantial. For developing countries, it is better to plan that there will be a fuel interruption and a need for fuel supply options as that may become the norm rather than the exception.“For countries without a transmission grid, the obvious solution for a power requirement inland is to transport fuel. However, in those applications where a reasonably-reliable grid exists, we must evaluate which is cheaper: transporting fuel over the highway system with its inherent costs, long supply chain, and liability risks, or transporting electrons overhead?“A power generation fuel supply checklist is as follows:How will fuel physically be imported into the country and/or made available to the power generation facility?Has the required capacity planning for each step along the fuel supply chain been completed to ensure adequate capacity exists?What are the multiple fuels that will allow the power generation facility to reliably produce power for the term required, and can they be accessed?Does the power generation equipment offer flexibility in the fuels that can be used?How easily will the new facility be able to move from the primary fuel to the ‘Plan B’ fuel in case of a fuel supply interruption or a price spike?“By understanding the critical nature of reliable fuel supply and how it economically drives the power generation engine, the high opportunity cost of no power production due to a lack of fuel can be avoided. A more holistic evaluation of the entire power generation process with special emphasis on fuel supply can yield better and more profitable long term results and truly harvest the ‘gold’ for a successful power project.”Picture courtesy of Synchrotech Controls, specialising in providing remote site power generation.last_img read more

President Higgins on Castro Next time hell require more than one line

first_img 39 Comments Barry McLoughlin WHEN IT COMES to writing about the recently deceased, we Irish seem to adopt the approach, if you have nothing good to say, say nothing. But is this the way to properly mark the passing of someone, either loved or loathed? What should go into an obituary and why?This dilemma was best exemplified when President Higgins described Castro as a “Giant among global leaders”. He took a view, shared by Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, that Castro’s life and achievements were to be praised, not vilified.Castro, according to President Higgins, “guided the country through a remarkable process of social and political change, advocating a development path that was unique and determined independently.”Further on, his only explicit nod to oppression was the following line: “The economic and social reforms introduced were at the price of a restriction of civil society, which brought its critics.” It was this line that caught the attention of the political class. Fianna Fáil thought the statement should have been “more balanced”.An independent senator attacked “a complimentary statement about a man that many Irish people would find repugnant.” The President had to send out his spokesman to clarify his remarks.What was wrong with that statement? Like any communication, you need to know your audience before you start writing and be clear on what your objective is.President Higgins clearly admired Castro from a political point of view. But he is President of Ireland.In his statement of 10 paragraphs, just one line covered darker areas like human rights abuses.Was this objective the right one for our Head of State? Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, center, attends a ceremony at the Jose Marti Monument n Havana, Cuba, Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2016. Source: Ramon EspinosaThis was a question those close to Justin Trudeau pondered at the same time.The cack-handed wording and rationale of Trudeau’s statement, (“While a controversial figure, both Mr Castro’s supporters and detractors recognised his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for ‘el Comandante’”) lead to a twitter storm of #TrudeauEulogies.Pol Pot, Hitler, Stalin, Darth Vader and others were all given positive eulogies in a similar style by a gleeful Twitterati. Trudeau, according to The New York Times: “generated the kind of social media blowback to which the telegenic…..Prime Minister is rarely subjected.” Trudeau had good personal reasons to call Castro a “Remarkable Leader”. Trudeau’s father was a friend of Castro. Castro had served as an honorary pallbearer at his funeral. And allowing that to dominate his thinking when drafting the statement was the problem.Speaking ill of the deadIn Ireland, we place great emphasis on respecting the newly dead, whatever their sins.We have an entire literary genre of tension-filled funeral dramas. Think of anything John B Keane wrote. De Valera famously offered his condolences to the Germans after the war on the death of Hitler.This was despite the emergence of details of the concentration camps and the fact that he would have invaded us in a heartbeat if it suited. So, should we look hard at this reflex to blindly honour the dead in our obituaries and statements?Can our leaders write statements that are accurate and objective?Ann Roe, obituaries editor with The Economist, has spoken about writing an obituary “from their (the deceased’s) point of view”. This means looking at the good and the bad sides. Below is the first paragraph of an obituary she wrote in 2011.“When he gave interviews to foreign journalists, which he did rarely, he had a way of looking down at his hands. This, and his soft, slightly raspy voice, and his gentle eyes, as well as the fact that he allowed no instantaneous translation, helped conceal what he was saying: that it was the duty of all Muslims to kill unbelievers, especially Americans.”The man with the soft voice was Osama Bin Laden. The Economist received criticism for this obituary, which included references to how he was with his children and how he liked to relax. If we are to see an obituary or eulogy as an honest statement, it needs to show both sides.Trudeau’s statement was that of a son mourning his late father’s friend, not of Canadian PM speaking on behalf of his country. Neither Canada’s statement nor Ireland’s mentioned the Cuban Missile Crisis.Never criticising dead public figuresWe are not a people inclined to criticise our dead public figures. President Higgins reflected that in his statement, albeit to the point of giving enough to the politically ambitious to query his tone and force a clarification.Perhaps the next time he drafts such a statement, he’ll require more than one line to reflect the reality of any political or human life, failure, moral ambiguity and moments of weakness. And he need not be blunt.There’s a wealth of phrases that say one thing but mean another. The Times of London used the phrase “a bon viveur” to indicate alcoholism. “Survived by his mother” was a code for homosexuality. “Did not suffer fools” really meant a domineering tyrant. And “devoted to his wife” suggested that the deceased rutted around town like an old goat, such was his devotion.With two wives, numerous affairs and 11 children by 4 different women, that one might have suited Castro perfectly.Barry McLoughlin is a Senior Training Consultant with The Communications Clinic.

Family violence victims of CALD background more vulnerable

first_imgWomen of migrant and refugee background who are victims of family violence find it harder to access services and are more vulnerable when it comes to reporting the crimes committed against them. This grim reality was brought to the fore at the Royal Commission into Family Violence by InTouch the only Multicultural Centre against Family Violence in Victoria which provides support services exclusively to women of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds in Victoria.With the Royal Commission continuing its public consultations this week, InTouch submitted its 42 recommendations for the Commission to consider and act upon. The recommendations cover a number of issues, with the need for the provision and funding of interpreting, as well as culturally and linguistically sensitive legal services, at the heart of them. The need for the government to support service providers to centre the needs of CALD women and children when designing programs and services for people affected by family violence is the overarching principle that the recommendations are based upon. The recommendations point out that there is a lack of community-led family violence prevention initiatives in settings such as faith groups, schools, ethno-specific organisations and migrant resource centres: primary social locations for women and men of CALD background when they are newcomers to Australia. InTouch CEO Maya Avdibegovic, pointed out to Neos Kosmos that while the experiences of migrant and refugee women are similar to women in the wider community, there are additional challenges to overcome when seeking protection from a violent partner or family member such as: lack of knowledge about the Australian legal system; extreme social isolation; a fear of people in positions of authority; and limited English skills. Similarly, the experiences of their children may differ to the experiences of children in the wider community who suffer family violence, because of trauma related to their pre-migration and migration experiences, racism and discrimination, and the normalisation of certain cultural beliefs. According Ms Avdibegovic if undertaken the recommendations would greatly enhance the capacity of CALD women and children to access effective family violence support services, and thereby assist the government to achieve its aim of combating family violence.“While we recognise there have been a number of systematic advances in relation to assisting victims of family violence, migrant and refugee women and children still face a range of barriers and service gaps when it comes to accessing mainstream broader services” said Ms Avdibegovic. The Victoria’s Royal Commission into Family Violence started public hearings in Melbourne last Monday. The Victorian Government established the royal commission earlier this year, describing family violence as a national emergency.According to crime statistics in 2013 there were 44 family violence-related deaths in Victoria and more than 65,000 family violence incidents reported to police.

How Factors Before College Impact Success For Students Of Color

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Share X PexelsIn Texas students of color are less likely to finish college than their white peers. More than 60 percent of that gap can be explained by factors before college, according to a new study.In Texas, the majority of white students finish college. But for black and Hispanic students, graduation rates are 50 percent or less.To find out why, one researcher looked at what these students brought with them to college, starting in kindergarten.“For both groups we saw the overwhelming factor contributing to the racial college completion gap was high school segregation, racial segregation in the high schools,” said Stella Flores, a professor at New York University.Flores also found some differences behind the gap. Hispanic students in Texas faced a lot of poverty while black students didn’t have as much access to rigorous classes in high school that would prepare them for college.“We can’t ignore the demographic realities of race,” Flores said. “The majority of our students in Texas are now Latino and across the nation the majority of students are non-white, so investing in the success, it’s an utmost economic priority.”Flores added that the study shows that both school districts and also universities need to tailor their services to what certain kids need.“This doesn’t relieve the higher education sector from any responsibility or accountability,” she said. “But it does encourage us to take a wider look across the pipeline to understand how to increase college completion. The way we’re looking at it now is not sufficient.” Listen 00:00 /01:08last_img read more

Minutes after the verdict was read, Uresti said he will “absolutely appeal” and has no immediate plans to step down. He’s not up for re-election until 2020. The charges stemmed from Uresti’s association with FourWinds Logistics, a now-bankrupt oilfield services company that perpetrated a Ponzi scheme against its investors. Uresti served as general counsel for FourWinds and owned 1 percent of the company’s shares. He also earned commission for recruiting investors, according to court documents.Several of the company’s leaders pleaded guilty to fraud charges before Uresti’s case even went to trial, some of them in plea agreements to testify for the government. Prosecutors argued that Uresti had used his prestigious reputation to lend credibility to an unknown company; several investors testified that Uresti’s presence reassured them that their money would be safe with FourWinds. But Uresti’s lawyers countered that the lawmaker was never aware of, or involved in, the company’s shady dealings.Uresti is also set for trial in May on separate felony charges of bribery and money laundering. It’s unclear how Thursday’s verdict will affect that schedule.  The senator has also faced calls to resign over allegations of sexual harassmentat the state Legislature — charges he has denied.last_img read more

Starbucks introduces exclusive coffee from its Costa Rica farm

first_imgIn San José this week,Starbucks officially presented its Hacienda Alsacia coffee, a new variety of Arabica named after the farm that the company owns in Costa Rica.Country Manager Mónica Bianchini said at a press conference on Thursday that Alsacia is available exclusively at Starbucks shops in Costa Rica. The Seattle-based company is currently conducting research to assess options to take it to other countries, she said.Bianchini described the new coffee’s taste this way: “medium body, medium acidity, and fairly balanced by citrus and milk chocolate accents.”Starbucks experts managed to get a balanced and subtle flavor by breeding and combining various varieties such as Catauí, Caturra and Villa Sarchí, she told The Tico Times.The company grows Hacienda Alsacia between 1,400 and 1,600 meters (4,593- 5,249 feet) above sea level on the very fertile slopes of Poás Volcano.The farm is also home to Starbucks’ Global Agronomy Research & Development Center, where the company conducts research to develop new coffee varieties. Starbucks Country Manager Mónica Bianchini and Director of Global Agronomy Carlos Mario Rodríguez Solís on Jan. 26, 2017 present the Hacienda Alsacia coffee in San José. L. Arias/The Tico TimesResistant coffee varietyStarbucks Director of Global Agronomy Carlos Mario Rodríguez Solís said research in the past four years lead them to develop the new variety.Investigators sought to produce a top-quality coffee, but also crops than can endure the effects of climate change as well as plagues and disease. The Hacienda Alsacia variety is resistant to coffee rust, which since 2011 has caused billions of dollars in losses for producers in Costa Rica and other Latin American countries.Production techniques developed at the research facility also protect trees and cherries from the coffee berry borer, various species of nematodes — roundworms — and other pathogen agents, Rodríguez said.Technologies developed at the global center are open source, meaning that it is available to other farmers.“We want to help them improve their production and protect the quality of their crops,” Rodríguez told The Tico Times.The new variety also significantly improved production costs and eficiency.“We managed to harvest more than 300,000 pounds just in our first year,” Rodríguez said.The Starbucks research and development project in Costa Rica started in 2004 when the company opened its Farmer Support Center. The facility allows agronomists and farmers to work together and share information about increasing coffee productivity and quality.Links with Costa Rica consolidated in 2013 when Starbucks acquired the 240-hectare farm. The estate, located in the province of Alajuela, is the company’s first and only experimental farm, Bianchini said. Crops of the new Hacienda Alsacia variety are planted within a 70-hectare area.Bianchini noted that the production of the new variety will not have an impact on purchases that Starbucks makes from other Tico producers.Buy it, brew itHacienda Alsacia is already available at all Starbucks shops in Costa Rica, and customers can order their espressos, lattes, or cappuccinos prepared with the Tico coffee.It is also available in 250-gram bags of whole beans, which customers can ask staff to grind for them if they prefer to take home ground coffee.The coffee package also pays homage to Costa Rica, depicting the Poás Volcano slopes at Hacienda Alsacia, Bianchini added.Costa Rica has been a major coffee supplier for Starbucks since the company started in 1971. The first Starbucks in Costa Rica opened in Escazú, southwest of San José, in 2012. Today the global brand has 11 cafés here. Starbucks’ Hacienda Alsacia spans along 240 hectares on the slops of Poás Volcano in the province of Alajuela, where the company opened its Global Agronomy Research & Development Center in 2013.

10 of the best Christmas markets in Europe and why you should

first_imgWhere to stay When All prices are as of date of publication on 11 September 2018 and are subject to change and availability. Copenhagen may be as cool as capital cities get, but that doesn’t stop it coming over all warm and fuzzy in the run-up to Christmas. In its cobbled streets and squares the air is scented with mulled wine and roasted almonds, the trees are strung with fairy lights and cosy, candlelit bars are filled with people soaking up lashings of hygge over glasses of gløgg (spicy mulled wine). Epicentre of all things twinkly is Tivoli, where little wooden huts sell Christmas crafts and seasonal foods – snack on a portion of æbleskiver (sugar dusted pancake balls) as you browse the stalls for woollen sweaters, marzipan pigs and pretty tea light holders. Vienna Christmas Dream: 17 Nov-26 Dec 2018Art Advent: 23 Nov-23 Dec 2018 Some Christmas markets are more tat than tasteful – but that’s not an accusation you could level at Nuremberg, the Bavarian town that’s home to one of the oldest and best-loved of German festive markets. Here, there’s a strict ban on modern, mass-produced goods, so the orderly rows of stalls, topped with red-and-white-striped awnings, are filled with traditional goods. Look out for gold foil angels, carved wooden candle stands, Springerle (anise-flavoured moulded biscuits with intricate designs), and the quirky local speciality of Zwetschgenmännle – little figures with prunes for bodies and walnuts for heads. The four-star Hotel Imperial has a good location on the edge of the old town, right by the city walls. Décor is quaintly old school in style and there’s a basement sauna to warm you up after a day at the market. Rooms from £63. Where to stay Midway between Exchange Square and Albert Square, Motel One Manchester-Royal Exchange is brilliantly placed for exploring the Christmas markets. Interiors are bright and funky, with plenty of playful nods to the city’s industrial heyday. Rooms from £69. 4. Amsterdam, Netherlands When 1 Dec 2018-6 Jan 2019 8. Gothenburg, Sweden Amsterdam Light Festival: 29 Nov 2018-20 Jan 2019 Search flights to Strasbourg Last year Manchester Christmas Markets were voted the best in the UK in an online poll and named the most popular in Europe among Instagram users. Not bad going, considering they only launched in 1999 in one city centre site. Now they’ve grown to take in 10 different locations, with 300-odd stalls spread between them, selling a mix of gifts, crafts, food and drink. You could easily walk round them all in one glühwein-fuelled evening but if time is tight, head straight for the main event in Albert Square, where the grand Victorian town hall is adorned with a giant sparkly Santa for the occasion. Where to stay When 23 Nov-24 Dec 2018 (with some markets staying open until 30 Dec) 9. Strasbourg, France Brussels’ Christmas market is Belgium’s biggest, with more than 200 chalets selling all manner of seasonal souvenirs and serving up no end of foodie treats, from tartiflette and pretzels to oysters and delicious Belgian chocolates. You also get an ice rink, fairground (complete with steampunk carousel and giant Ferris wheel) and a whole constellation of Christmas lights. Check out the glittery makeover of the normally formal-looking Bourse and don’t miss the nightly spectacle in the Grand Place, when the beautiful buildings around the UNESCO World Heritage-listed square form the backdrop for a choreographed display of lights and music. Where to stay Search flights to Copenhagen You can’t get much more at the heart of things than The Square – opposite the Town Hall Square, round the corner from Tivoli and less than 10 minutes’ walk from Central Station. Rooms are smart, service is friendly and you can rent bikes from reception. Rooms from £113. Christmas at Liseberg: 16 Nov-30 Dec 2018 (closed some weekdays; see liseberg.com/christmas-at-liseberg for details) Small but perfectly formed, Tallinn’s Christmas market looks like a scene from a Victorian Christmas card. Tiny huts covered in fairy lights fan out from a huge Christmas tree in the centre of the handsome Town Hall Square, and there’s every chance of snow falling to add to the picture-book effect. You’ll find plenty of mulled wine and gingerbread on offer as you browse the stalls, which mostly sell local handicrafts and traditional Christmas dishes, such as sauerkraut and black pudding. There’s a merry-go-round for the kids and a stage that plays host to folk dancing and choir singing at weekends. 7.

Brussels, Belgium Amsterdam may not have a dedicated Christmas market, but that doesn’t stop the city turning the festive dial up to 11. All the regular markets break out the tinsel and stock up on seasonal specialities; the Koninklijk Theater Carré puts on the World Christmas Circus and an outdoor ice rink pops up right in front of the Rijksmuseum. Best of all, the Amsterdam Light Festival rocks into town, filling the streets, canals and parks with a magical selection of illuminated installations. As you wander round them, snack on some oliebollen – the seasonal doughnuts aren’t in the least bit healthy but do, apparently, ward off evil spirits. Where to stay 30 Nov 2018-6 Jan 2019 10. Tallinn, Estonia Daylight may be in short supply during Swedish winter, but there’s nothing gloomy about a pre-Christmas trip to Gothenburg. There are festive markets dotted around the city centre, singing choirs on Kungsportsplatsen, and no shortage of places to refuel with smoked sausage, roasted reindeer and glasses of glögg. Outshining all other attractions, though, is Liseberg amusement park, where they really push the festive boat out, bringing in artificial snow and Christmas trees by the lorryload, laying on fire pits, winter carousels and an ice ballet, and illuminating the whole magical scene with more than five million fairy lights.

Copenhagen, Denmark Search flights to Brussels Prague has fairy tale good looks all year round, but come Christmas the Czech capital adds an extra layer of twinkly fabulousness. At the heart of the action is Old Town Square, where a humungous Christmas tree is draped in lights and there’s a stable with live animals for children to pet. Wander the rows of red-canopied wooden huts, browsing the displays of wooden toys, embroidered lace and traditional Christmas decorations (the Czech glass baubles make a great festive souvenir), and fortify yourself along the way with klobása (barbecued sausages), trdelník (sugar coated dough, roasted over hot coals) and medovina (hot honey wine).

Rooms from £123. Where to stay Where to stay Strasbourg’s been hosting its Christkindelsmärik (Christmas market) since 1570, so it’s no wonder the self-proclaimed ‘Capitale de Noël’ puts on a fine show. The pretty half-timbered houses of the historic centre are festooned with lavish decorations, there are elaborate illuminations strung across the cobbled streets and in Place Kléber a gigantic fir tree, adorned with 7 kilometres of fairy lights and hundreds of giant baubles, towers over the market stalls below. Expect plenty of tradition in everything from the gifts to the food, which includes bredele, scented festive biscuits that you can take back to decorate the tree at home. Where to stay Why settle for one Christmas market when you can have a whole bunch of them? In Vienna more than 20 pop-up festive villages fill the prettiest squares and sit against impressive imperial backdrops, such as the Schönbrunn and Belvedere palaces. Granddaddy of them all is the Vienna Christmas Dream on Rathausplatz, with 150-plus traditional stalls laid out in front of the City Hall. For something a bit different, try Art Advent on Karlsplatz, where the focus is on handmade arts and crafts. The food is all organic, and the theatrical live entertainment might include choreographed pyrotechnics and ethereal stilt walkers.

Minister lists renal objectives ahead of World Kidney Day

first_imgA total of 57 people are currently awaiting a kidney transplant, of which three also need a pancreas transplant, Health Minister George Pamborides said on Monday.Cyprus ranks fifth among the countries with the most living organ donors in the world, with 28.5 donors per million inhabitants of a country, but it is at the bottom of the list when it comes to deceased donors, with 6.47 donors per million population, the minister said at an event to mark this year’s World Kidney Day on March 10.“From 2011 to date,” he added, “a total of 136 kidney transplants have taken place (in Cyprus), 98 from living donors and 38 from deceased, one of which involved a simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplantation.”In his address the minister said renal disease can affect children in many ways, from conditions that are readily treatable to others that may be threatening the quality and duration of life.“The majority of children with renal disease are in the final stage of renal failure when they are adults, resulting in a kidney transplant as the only solution. To reverse these negative results, we have a responsibility to act in a timely and organised way, “he said.“A basic parameter for achieving the goal is the proper education of the children themselves, the parents and the general public,” Pamborides said. “The key to success is the establishment of a healthy lifestyle for children starting from birth and continuing into adulthood.”He also said that today’s technological achievements in dealing with chronic kidney disease have significantly helped the duration and quality of life of kidney disease sufferers.“The immediate goal of the health ministry is to create an autonomous transplant clinic at the General Hospital of Nicosia,” he concluded, noting that an enhanced effort to inform and raise awareness for organ donations was also important.One in ten people are estimated to suffer from some form of kidney damage, according to World Health Organisation data.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTruthfinderEnter Any Name, Wait 105 Seconds, See Instant ResultsTruthfinderUndoInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesNew Rule in Rowland Heights, California Leaves Drivers FumingInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
