With typhoon compounding flood damage in DPR Korea UN steps up relief

25 September 2007With rainstorms and strong winds from last week’s Typhoon Wipha compounding the woes of hundreds of thousands of North Koreans already suffering from August’s floods, United Nations agencies are pre-positioning food for a new distribution and appealing to donors to make up a huge funding shortfall. The floods are reported to have affected close to 1 million people and displaced nearly 170,000 across flood-affected provinces in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), killing 454 people with 156 still missing and over 4,351 injured. The DPRK’s Central Bureau of Statistics reports that some 40,463 houses were destroyed, 133,732 houses submerged and 67,056 badly damaged. In addition, over 8,000 public buildings were destroyed or badly damaged, including thousands of schools and hospitals. At least 10 per cent of the total agricultural land was also inundated. Last month’s UN Flash Appeal for $14.1 million currently stands at 12 per cent funding, with just $1.71 million contributed. A further $4.78 million has been pledged. “Donors are encouraged to convert their pledges into contributions as soon as possible,” the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in its latest update. Resident UN Agencies and partners continue to expedite aid delivery and close collaboration with the DPRK Government and local communities continues to be strengthened through regular assessments, OCHA reported. The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has finalized details with the Ministry of City Management on a rapid two-week assessment of pumping stations cover 20 affected counties and some 70 per cent of those displaced. The Agency is also working closely with the Ministry of Education to provide emergency school supplies, as well as furniture and stationary to the worst damaged schools. Concerns are turning to repairing schools in time for the winter, as some classes are still being held in the open air. Having completed the first round of emergency food distribution and undertaking monitoring missions to more than half their recipient counties, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) is now pre-positioning stocks for a second round of distribution scheduled to start mid-October. The UN World Health Organization (WHO) is working with the Health Ministry to improve the quality and expedite analysis of disease surveillance, while the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) is distributing emergency kits for family planning and safe and clean delivery for 300,000 displaced persons. read more


UN envoy urges a greater support to victims of drought in east

“On my visit to a drought-stricken district in Kenya, I saw with my own eyes the terrible effect this drought is having on pastoralists, farmers and their families,” Kjell Magne Bondevik, UN Special Humanitarian Envoy for the Horn of Africa, told the press in Oslo, Norway, about a crisis that also affects Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti.“A great number of animals have already lost their lives due to the drought. Now all efforts must be made to avoid a similar destiny for children and their families,” Mr. Bondevik said, pledging to work with ministries of foreign affairs in major donor countries in order to galvanize the funding needed for humanitarian relief.The Horn of Africa, where more than 40 per cent of all people are chronically undernourished, is one of the most nutritionally insecure regions in the world, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).At his press conference, Mr. Bondevik stressed that more attention must be paid to the root causes of food insecurity and the need to enhance coordination among national governments, local authorities, the UN, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the donor community and regional organizations in addressing those causes. read more

(Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP, File) Thousands cut from their money for more than a week by glitch with Russell Simmons’ RushCard by Ken Sweet, The Associated Press Posted Oct 20, 2015 11:49 am MDT Last Updated Oct 20, 2015 at 1:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – Thousands of customers of pre-paid debit cards backed by hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons remain without access to their money more than a week after technical problems first began plaguing the cards.Customers of the so-called RushCards, mostly people without bank accounts, say they have missed car payments and worse. Some say they have been unable to purchase food or important items for their families.“I am so saddened and stressed because I was waiting on this deposit to purchase Pampers for my son and pay a bill,” said RushCard user Deandra Slater, in an email. “I need help somehow because I am not receiving any answers.”The problems with the RushCard started October 12, when a software upgrade in the transaction processing system caused many RushCard accounts to show a zero balance or left customers unable to access to their funds. The company says the software glitch has been mostly resolved, though thousands remain affected.The company says that even if customers are unable to get at their money, it remains safely housed in MetaBank, the custodian bank used by RushCard. MetaBank is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.Meanwhile, RushCard customers have flooded the company’s customer service lines, its Facebook page and have messaged Simmons on Twitter, pleading for access to their money.Simmons has been active on Twitter and other social media and says he has been talking with customers to help resolve their problems, according to messages posted in his accounts.“Still personally calling lots of people this morning. Fixing the remaining problems. People have been so nice despite week of hardships,” Simmons posted on Twitter on Monday.The RushCard is one of dozens of pre-paid debit cards, which are largely aimed at poor and lower-income Americans who do not have access to a checking or savings accounts. Simmons launched the RushCard roughly 12 years ago and the card was recommended by Consumer Reports in 2014.Several celebrities have backed or branded credit or debit cards over the last decade. The Kardashians gave their endorsement to the Kardashian Kard, a pre-paid debit card that drew heavy criticism for its extremely high fees.Banking industry experts and consumer advocates warn that customers should never choose a card based solely on a celebrity’s endorsement or involvement.“The terms and fees attached with a pre-paid debit card are the most important things a person should look at,” said Mark Hamrick, an analyst at “The reason why you want to use a celebrity product should not be ‘because it’s a celebrity.’”Ken Sweet can be reached on Twitter at . read more


Syphilis cases hit highest level since 1949 amid rise in risky sex

first_imgSince then, advances in treatment mean young people with HIV now have near normal life expectancy, while game-changing preventive drugs reduce the chance of transmission by 90 per cent.But the rise in unprotected sex has left increasing numbers exposed to other sexually transmitted infections, experts warn.In April NHS officials said dating apps such as Tinder and Grindr should advertise handouts of free condoms to prevent a surge in sexually transmitted infections.Dr Michael Brady, medical director at sexual health charity the Terrence Higgins Trust, said rates of infections were “unacceptably high” and said cuts to public health budgets were fuelling a “sexual health crisis”. Websites which help people find local sexual partners may be fuelling a rise in unprotected sex  Syphilis is a bacterial infection that’s usually caught by having sex with someone who’s infected.It can usually be treated with a short course of antibiotics, but if left untreated can cause serious long term problems.Last year officials warned of increasing outbreaks after a historical decline in the late 1980s and early 1990s, when the spectre of HIV pandemic encouraged safer sex. Syphilis cases have reached the highest level since 1949 following a rise in unsafe sex as fears about HIV have faded, new figures suggest.The official data shows the number of diagnoses has doubled in five years, with most cases occuring in gay and bisexual men.It follows warnings from health officials that risky sexual behaviours – including unprotected activity, “chem sex,” the use of “hookup” apps such as Grindr – and “poz” parties where HIV positive men select sexual partners – are fuelling the rise.The figures from Public Health England show 5,920 syphilis diagnoses in 2016 – a rise of 12 per cent in one year, and a near doubling from 3,001 cases in 2012.PHE said that the cases were mostly associated with transmission in gay, bisexual or other men who have sex with men.center_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

I gave up drugs to get out of the managed red light

 Protect yourself and your family by learning more about Global Health Security  Dressed smartly each day in a check skirt, she made sure she had her “fix” before going on the street so she did not suffer drug withdrawal symptoms. It was a cool summer evening when Jenni* took her first step into prostitution on the bleak Leeds industrial estate that has become Britain’s only official red light district.Within hours, the neatly dressed mother-of-two from a comfortable background earned £150. She was hooked on the money to pay for her crack and heroin addiction. “All morals and principles went out of the window,” she says.The 36-year-old former insurance worker had turned to drugs to cope with the fallout from post-natal depression following the birth of her first child. It took her a year before she escaped the “managed red light zone” in Holbeck and started to get her life back on track after entering rehab.She is writing a book about her experiences of legalised prostitution, which critics say has sanctioned violence, exploitation and crime.Jenni tells of the constant threat of robbery, sex tourism, exploitation by traffickers, and women so desperate for drugs they sold sex for just £10.It comes as Theresa May hinted yesterday that Britain might adopt the Nordic model which decriminalises prostitutes, provides help for them to exit the profession, and makes paying for sex a criminal offence.Unlike some of the other prostitutes, Jenni focused on building a client-base of “regulars”. It meant she netted more than £2,000 a week which she spent on drugs for her and her husband. Food, tea and condoms were provided by charities working in the zone. She says other girls were dangerously erratic. “They’d turn up at odd hours. They’d come down poorly because they hadn’t saved the drugs from the day before. Some would do it all that night and then end up looking rough, looking desperate, then do things for tenners,” she adds.At least a third of the women did not use condoms despite outreach workers promoting safer sex. “The men would go round asking for girls who would do it without a condom… and pay an extra £20 for it,” says Jenni.The zone, designed to crack down on pimping, was in reality a magnet for men seeking to exploit the women by charging them for protection. “There were loads of young lads who were basically glorified pimps,” says Jenni. “There were more and more attacks before I left, of people coming into the area to rob the girls, knowing they were on their own with money. But because of the deteriorating relationship with the police, the girls didn’t report anything and just felt less and less safe.” Such was the lure of the zone that Jenni had “regulars” from the south of England. Most were married. A spokesman for Safer Leeds said the zone had led to an increase in prostitutes reporting crimes to police with some landmark convictions of offenders who would otherwise not have been brought to justice.“The Managed Approach has also led to clear improvements in the way that sex workers can access a range of services; including drug and alcohol, sexual, physical mental health, housing and other support services,” he said. He challenged evidence of men travelling significant distances to the zone. With the 2015 murder of Daria Pionko, a prostitute in the zone, Jenni carried a walkie-talkie in case she needed to call for help. Despite this, she was robbed and beaten by an acquaintance of one of her clients and she was once almost abducted.“A guy in a car approached me as I was walking down the road. I saw rope and tape on the floor. He tried pulling me in. I was wrestling to get away.“Men in cars, obviously looking for girls, stopped and chased him off.”She worked in the zone alongside 30 English women and 20 East Europeans, who, she believes, had been trafficked into the UK.“The only girls who were controlled in any way were the foreign girls. They would turn up with these men who would tip them out from a minibus,” says Jenni. “Sometimes one of them would stay and watch the girls while the others followed them about, keeping a really close eye on them. We used to say they probably came over here thinking they were going to work somewhere nice and have ended up doing this. I felt really sorry for them.” “A lot of them would come with stories like their wife had cancer and she couldn’t have sex and this was a way of not hurting her. Quite a few were just single middle-aged guys that, I think, half the time were just lonely,” she says.Some just wanted to talk rather than have sex. One bought her a phone and underwear as a Christmas present.“In a weird way, I felt I had more power than them but that was only because I had built up such a clientele that I could choose who and when and how, and even prices.Some, though not her regulars, were dangerous. “You do get some sleazy guys down there that say, ‘If I’m paying for you, then I’m paying for what you’re going to do whether you like it or not’. You do get that, maybe things their girlfriends won’t do,” she says.Not once, she says, did she have an offer to help her quit prostitution from either of the main charities working in the area. She also says the women are not safe because they often leave the area to go to dangerous secluded spots with clients.Her biggest criticism of the managed zone is the failure to offer women a route out of a world where drugs are rife. “All the girls are down there because they’re dependent on drugs. I don’t believe it’s their choice to do it,” she says. “The key is to stop the drug use and it will stop the girls having to work for drugs.”

Headmaster Fired for Secret Cryptomining Operation at School

first_img Facebook Is Making Cryptocurrency Because We’ve Learned NothingCops Raid Suspected Pot House, Find Cryptomining Operation Instead Stay on target It can be tough to turn a profit by mining cryptocurrencies. High-end hardware is expensive and has a voracious appetite for electricity. If you really want to turn a profit, you need to look for ways to keep your costs down. For some miners, that means setting up mining rigs somewhere that all the waste heat they produce can be put to good use. Others might take a shadier approachThe headmaster of a school in China decided to boost his bottom line by plugging in to free power. Free to him, anyway. He decided to take his rigs to work and let the school foot the bill.While it saved on electricity, the move ultimately came with a substantial cost: his job. The headmaster was unceremoniously fired once his operation has discovered, according to BBC News.Lei Hua, the head of Puman Middle School in China’s Hunan Province, reportedly started out with a single $1500 machine set up at his home to mine Ethereum. However, he quickly decided that he didn’t want to continue footing the bill to power the rig.Once the system was set up at the school it was time to scale up. Lei purchased another seven mining rigs. His deputy headmaster got in on the action, too, purchasing a ninth system. Never hurts to add more hashing power, right?Well, it doesn’t until the people around you start to notice all the fan noise. After a school employee had reported the unusually high electricity consumption to Lei, the headmaster tried to dismiss those complaints by blaming the school’s air conditioners and heaters, the South China Morning Post reported. He couldn’t blame network disruptions on environmental controls, however.The additional network traffic from the cryptomining raised suspicions. The mining setup started to cause bottlenecks on the school’s LAN and disrupting lessons.By the time it was busted, investigators believe that the mining operation had consumed more than $2,100 in electricity.And as crazy as this story might seem, it’s not even close to the craziest secret crypto operation that’s been busted. Back in February, Russian authorities found one running in a top-secret nuclear facility.More on Museum Exhibits the Art of BlockchainBitcoin Mining Puts a Massive Strain on ElectricityOscar Mayer Trades Bacoin Cryptocurrency for Actual Baconlast_img read more

The consensus of the gathering is that change can be difficult, but that the confusion that accompanied the early days of the first phase of a three phase downtown mobility plan involving a 9 square mile network,  has lessened considerably.Coalition Executive Director Andy Hanshaw told us, “There’s been a lot of reporting about confusion because it was new.  This plan was passed back in 2017, it’s now coming to fruition.”  Hanshaw’s reference to 2017 addresses criticism, from businesses and business associations, including those in North Park, where there’s a similar plan for such lanes, that all of this wasn’t properly vetted and is benefittng only a few.“I know there’s been talk of a loss of parking,” he continued.  “Actually there’s been a net gain, and now there’s space for bicyclists to be safe.  So it’s for the City’s future, tripling the population downtown, for people to have more mobility choices and to get out of their cars.”As for the safety aspects, he says he’s already noted more people taking advantage of the lanes, including scooter riders.  “If you build it they will come and I firmly believe that,”  he added.KUSI’s Ed Lenderman spoke with San Diego City Councilmember Chris Ward about why he supports adding protected bikeways and removing parking spaces from our region’s neighborhood.Ward believes “choice riders” currently drive to work but would rather bike if there was a safe way to do it.

Huge Golden Orb spider found in LadysmithHuge Golden Orb spider found in

first_imgA female Golden Orb (Nephila) spider was found on a property in Ladysmith recently. The web was huge and so was the spider on it!The Golden Orb spider is so named because of the colour of its silk. It is thought that this colour may serve two purposes: in the sunlight it will attract bees drawn to the bright yellow, whereas in shadow it becomes camouflaged in the foliage, thus ensnaring other insects.A female Golden Orb spider can have an abdomen of up to 30mm long.She dwarfs the tiny 5mm male in both size and weight. In almost all Nephila species, the male is in danger of being devoured by the female after mating.Also read: Dangerous spider found in LadysmithAlso read: Spider Harlequin is scary? To avoid being cannibalised, the male will approach the female when she is already feeding, or present her with a parcel of food to eat. While the female is distracted, the male will fertilize her and then retreat to a safe distance.The bite of Golden Orb weaving spiders is of low risk (not toxic) to humans. Symptoms may include mild pain, numbness and swelling. Occasionally nausea and dizziness can occur. They seldom bite though.However, be careful not to walk into their webs at night, as the experience of this spider crawling over one’s face can be terrifying.If you see this spider, you will now know what species it is.

In fact, he sounded like he was on the verge of giggling after each posed question. “I was kind of thinking that (Carson Palmer) overthrew me a bit,” he said. “But it ended up being a great pass. It was right over the head, right in the basket.” The best part? His mom was in the stands watching. “I think it was his mom and all his family’s first time coming out and being able to watch him play, and to put a performance like that, it was remarkable,” said Fitzgerald. “We were all happy for him.” Kind words from the veteran, but it got better. “I wouldn’t say I’m surprised. If you get to know him, knowing what he’s been through, some of the tragedy he’s dealt with, he’s a really focused young man. He understands the magnitude of things, but it’s not too big for him,” Fitzgerald said.“That’s just a testament to his upbringing, his hard work and dedication throughout the course of his life to put him in positions like this.” One position Brown might want to be a little careful of, though, is when he’s behind the podium post game. He let slip that Palmer had a signal for him that told him he’d get the ball. 0 Comments   Share   “Ah, the rookie,” said Palmer when he heard, shaking his head and chuckling at Brown’s inexperience with reporters.
