The United Nations working group on involuntary disappearances of people around the world wrapped up its annual session in Bangkok, Thailand today after reviewing 1,000 cases from 28 countries, as well as the relevant national legislation.The UN Commission on Human Rights Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances, established in 1980, said that it was continuing work on 40,000 cases of disappearance from 60 countries.The Group decided to hold its 75th session in Asia because “an increasing number of cases of enforced disappearance have recently been submitted to it from the region,” it said. Under its humanitarian mandate, it establishes a channel of communication between the disappeared person’s family and the allegedly responsible Government. Clarification occurs when the fate or whereabouts of the disappeared person is established.According to the Declaration on the Protection of All Persons from Enforced or Involuntary Disappearance, adopted by the General Assembly in 1992, enforced disappearances occur when State officials — or persons acting on behalf of, or with the support, consent, or acquiescence of a Government — cause people to lose their liberty, but then refuse to disclose the fate or whereabouts of the persons concerned, placing them outside legal protections.The Working Group said it discussed laws on amnesty and impunity for acts of enforced disappearance at this session and was conducting a worldwide study on such laws and their implementation.The Group comprises five independent experts. Its Chairman-Rapporteur is Stephen J. Toope, the Vice-Chairman is J. Bayo Adekanye, and the other members are Darko Gottlicher, Saied Rajaie Khorasani and Santiago Corcuera.
The programme will also need to find new presenters, after comedy duo Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins also declined to “go with the dough”.”We made no secret of our desire for the show to remain where it was,” they said in a statement, adding that the BBC had “nurtured the show from its infancy” and had “helped give it its distinctive warmth and charm”. The source said: “Both are from similar backgrounds, so hopefully viewers will be accepting and give Prue a chance to win them over.“Following in Mary’s footsteps is a big challenge. But the producers are confident that Prue has all the attributes.”On Tuesday morning, a representative for Leith confirmed that she “along with others” has been “part of the selection process for the new Channel 4 version of Bake Off”.A spokesman added: “At this point Channel 4 and Love Productions have not yet confirmed their final line up.” Mary Berry decided to stay with the BBCCredit:Ian West/PA To many viewers of the Great British Bake Off, Mary Berry will be an impossible act to follow when the much-loved cookery competition makes the move to Channel 4 this year. But among the names touted to take her place as judge alongside Paul Hollywood, one has emerged as the frontrunner – and few could doubt her credentials for the job.Restaurateur and food writer Prue Leith is being tipped to take the role in what the television programme’s bosses are said to see as a “like for like” replacement for 81-year-old Berry. Prue Leith previously denied she was interested in the jobCredit:Andrew Crowley The BBC later announced it had waived a legal clause preventing Channel 4 from showing the revamped Bake Off until 2018.The clause had stipulated that 12 months must pass before work could start on the new series if it moved to another channel. But in a statement released last month, the corporation said it would “not use its hold-back clause against Channel 4 and Love Productions”. The BBC added: “We wish the programme well for the future and look forward to seeing who is cast on the show. The BBC is proud of the part it has played in growing and nurturing the programme – doing that is at the core of what the BBC does.”A spokesman for Channel 4 said: “We’ll be announcing the line-up in due course.” Paul Hollywood is the last man standing of the original line-upCredit:Mark Bourdillon /BBC / Love Productions Indeed, Leith has already served as a judge for a decade on the similarly-named BBC cookery contest, Great British Menu, which pits professional chefs against one another. Only four months ago she said in an interview with the Daily Telegraph that she had no intention of throwing her hat in the ring to replace her friend Berry in the show’s new line-up.”I couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about, really. I was more concerned about Brangelina,” she said following the break-up of the original Bake Off team. But now a source has told the Sun that Leith – who at 76 is the same age as Berry was when the programme first launched – has been recruited as the new judge. Love Productions, the company behind Bake Off, said last September that it would be withdrawing the programme from the BBC at the end of series seven, having failed to seal a new deal after “more than a year of exhaustive negotiations”.Hours later, Channel 4 announced it had agreed a three-year deal for Bake Off. The move led to a number of its high-profile stars leaving. Berry said she decided to stay with the BBC “out of loyalty” to the corporation for nurturing her and the show from its beginnings.Signing off with “farewell to soggy bottoms”, the judge added: “I am just sad for the audience who may not be ready for change, I hope they understand my decision.” Leith is famed for her eponymous cookery school, which she founded in 1975, and for running a Michelin-starred restaurant. She has also written a number of books, her latest being The Prodigal Daughter, which promises a “heart-wrenching” love story as it tells of heroine Angelica, who goes to Paris to learn about French cuisine.It was announced last year that the hit baking show was moving to Channel 4 after the BBC failed to pay £25million a year to keep it.

THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY (EPA) is to carry out a two-year research programme to assess the potential impact of fracking.The EPA notes that although there are currently no hydraulic fracturing (fracking) projects under way in Ireland, the gas exploration method “is an emerging issue”.The research programme, for which the EPA is now accepting tender applications, will assist regulators on both sides of the border to form rules on fracking activity.The EPA says the research will involve extensive review of fracking activity worldwide as well as additional practical research.Fracking is a method of gas exploration where water is mixed with sand and other additives and pumped into underground bedrock at high pressure to fracture the rock.It has been criticised for having the potential to contaminate underground water tables and causing underground instability.The EPA earlier this year received a over 1,300 submissions as part of a consultation programme on the issue of fracking. “A large number of submissions expressed concerns and general opposition to fracking, ” says the EPA. “Calling for a ‘ban on fracking in Ireland’ until more information is available about the potential environmental and health impacts.”The consultation process concluded in March and a summary of its conclusions is available on the EPA’s website.

Les gènes joueraient un plus grand rôle que l’éducation dans la réussite scolaireSelon le DailyMail, un chercheur américain, après avoir rapproché, pour des milliers d’élèves britanniques, ascendances génétiques et résultats scolaires, soutient que détecter les capacités de chaque enfant en analysant son ADN permettrait de faire progresser l’éducation.Une équipe de l’Institut de psychiatrie du King College de Londres dirigée par le Pr Robert Plomin, un généticien américain, a suivi les résultats scolaires de plus de 11.100 jumeaux nés en Angleterre et au Pays de Galles entre 1994 et 1996. Or, l’analyse de leurs scores au Certificat général de l’enseignement secondaire (GCSE) suggère que leur patrimoine génétique jouerait un rôle dans les scores obtenus.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Plus en détail, il jouerait pour 58% dans le score obtenu en sciences, pour 55% en maths et pour 52% en anglais, affirme le directeur de l’étude. Selon lui, ces résultats pourraient signifier la fin de l’approche généraliste de l’enseignement au profit d’un système adapté aux aptitudes individuelles. Autrement dit, l’analyse génétique pourrait signaler forces et faiblesses dès le début du parcours scolaire des enfants, permettant aux enseignants d’identifier la meilleure façon de les aider. Et cela en dépit des craintes “d’étiquetage” des enfants exprimées par certaines personnes. “Les enfants se ‘cataloguent’ déjà les uns les autres. Ils savent qui est sportif, qui est brillant…”, remarque Robert Plomin. “En lisant le génome des enfants, nous pouvons prédire et prévenir leurs maladies. Si nous pouvons lire leur ADN, nous pouvons adapter l’enseignement pour aider un enfant ayant des difficultés d’apprentissage”, souligne t-il.”À l’évidence, c’est mieux que de [le laisser] s’asseoir dans une salle de classe et couler, incapable de lire parce que personne n’a réalisé qu’il pouvait avoir du mal”, conclut le scientifique.Le 3 août 2013 à 13:05 • Maxime Lambert
Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has revealed that he intends to return to the Serie A before the end of his playing daysThe Italy international had only left the Italian top-flight this summer when he joined Chelsea from Napoli.Jorginho has made an impressive start to his new career in English football and has already made history at Chelsea.But, despite signing a five-year contract upon his arrival at Stamford Bridge, it seems that Jorginho is “hopeful” he won’t be around for long.“There were various things behind my departure from Napoli,” said Jorginho, according to Sky Sports.“The will of just one party is not enough. Serie A will always be one of the best leagues in the world. I hope to go back one day.”Juventus confirm Mario Mandzukic could leave this month Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed reports that Mario Mandzukic could leave Juventus for a move to an unnamed Qatari team.The 26-year-old followed his former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri to Chelsea this summer.“There’s a difference in tempo and physicality between English and Italian football. However, you can’t not miss a magnificent place such as Napoli“To understand the difference with the infrastructure in England you have to experience it. At Cobham, we have 38 pitches. Enough said.“Sarri is enjoying his adventure in England but he’s not changing much, he’s sticking to his habits.”Jorginho made 133 appearances in the Serie A for Napoli across his four-year stay.

Road AccidentA local journalist and his wife were killed while their two children injured after being run over by a speedy bus in Raiganj upazila of Sirajganj early Sunday.The deceased were Rafiqul Islam Jinnah, 50, a correspondent of local newspaper, The Daily Satmatha, and his wife Morsheda Khatun, 45, an NGO official posted in Gazipur.Panchanan Sarkar, officer-in-charge of Raiganj police station, said Jinnah went to Dhanghora bus stoppage to receive Morsheda and their children who returned from Gazipur.The bus crashed into them around 2:00am while they were getting on a van, leaving the couple dead on the spot and their children — one aged 7 and the other 4 – sustained injuries.Law enforcers arrested the bus driver and his assistant, the OC said.
The Thin White Duke is coming to a console near you. Five of David Bowie’s classic songs–“Blue Jean,” “Fame,” “Modern Love,” “Young Americans,” and “Ziggy Stardust”–will be arriving on Rock Band 3 next week. Frankly, the inclusion of that last song is probably reason enough to run out and buy the game.The five tracks will be available for download on the Xbox 360, Wii, and PlayStation on January 25th. All songs are the original master recordings. They’ll run $2 a piece. I’m going to be totally honest with you, I mostly wanted to do this post to include a video of Ziggy. Check it out, after the jump. Ziggy played guitaaaaaar.
2015 was a pretty good year for gaming. We finally saw developers and publishers (mostly) focusing their efforts on current-gen systems, and because of that, we got a whole slew of great titles that fully utilized the power of modern consoles. We also saw consoles moving towards adopting the Steam model of offering giant sales on a more regular basis. Let’s not forget the millions of dollars that games like Fallout 4, Halo 5, and Call of Duty brought in. In that sense, things were fantastic.However, there were still many games and moments that completely disappointed us. There’s always a balance of course, and it seemed that great news was always offset by something unfortunate.Without further ado, let’s get right into it.Silent Hills gets cancelledLast year’s PT (“Playable Teaser”) for the Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro-helmed Silent Hills was something that came out of nowhere and scared the living crap out of us back during the summer of 2014. This was one of the scariest gaming experiences seen in a long time and people were ready for more.Unfortunately, Konami put an end to that hype real fast after it unceremoniously cancelled the game. Internal problems between Kojima and Konami led to the game getting axed and depriving us of something potentially amazing. What’s worse, Konami took P.T off the PlayStation Network, denying it to everyone but those who wisely kept the demo in their PS4 hard drive.To quote Guillermo Del Toro, this whole situation “Makes no f***ing sense at all.”Batman: Arkham Knight on PCYou know a game release is a royal mess when a company has to stop selling a title just days after its launch. This is exactly what happened with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. Though the game ran fine on consoles, it was a disaster on PC, having a myriad of performance issues and more. It was patched and re-released months later, but the damage had already been done. This is something PC gamers won’t soon forget.Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5Speaking of botched launches games, let’s talk about Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5. Now, making a game that hearkens back to a franchise’s glory days is all well and good — even great. But when your modern game has graphics that come straight out of the PlayStation 2 era, then something may be wrong. Even worse, the game’s graphics were the least of its problems. This was yet another full-priced $60 game that was riddled with game breaking bugs and other performance and gameplay issues.Tony Hawk would be spinning in his grave if he were dead.Rise of the Tomb Raider flopsThough the game itself was pretty damn fantastic and a worthy follow-up to the 2013 franchise reboot, the Xbox exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider failed to make any sort of major impact upon its release. There is no doubt that Microsoft paid Square Enix a pretty penny to make this an Xbox exclusive, so having the game reportedly sell only 330,000 physical copies during its first week of release must have really stung both companies.Whether it was its exclusivity, being released on the same day as Fallout 4, gamer’s possible disinterest in 10-12 hour narrative-driven games based on a very old franchise, or something else, is unknown. However, a title which is easily a candidate for game of the year flopping this hard is most definitely disappointing.Metal Gear Solid V’s second halfWhile this was my personal favorite game of the year, even a self-confessed MGS fanboy such as myself has to admit that the second half of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was mediocre at best.Aside from Mission 43, this entire section was a waste of time. All of the great story elements that were built up over the course of Chapter One were nowhere to be seen. A barrage of uninspired fetch quests mixed in with harder versions of missions from the previous chapter dragged this entire section down. Then of course there’s the gaping plot holes; storylines that will never be fully realized now that series creator Hideo Kojima no longer works at Konami. It’s such a damn shame because this game had all the makings of being a true masterpiece.Let me stop now before I make myself more upset.KonamiSince a few entries here center around it, let’s spotlight Konami real quick since they became the epitome of colossal screw up in 2015. Losing Hideo Kojima was bad enough, but the way Konami stripped the man’s name from anything related to Metal Gear, shut down Kojima Productions, cancelled Silent Hills, and was more than likely responsible for the lackluster second half of MGSV, put the entire company in a negative light. Then there’s the Orwellian nature of how they treat their employees, but that’s a whole other story.Konami, you messed up big time in 2015.Final Fantasy VII remake being split into partsWhile this isn’t a personal disappointment (I’m perfectly fine with Square Enix doing this), many people were downright outraged when it was announced that the long-awaited Final Fantasy VII remake would be released in multiple parts.The original FFVII was a single experience (even though it was split into parts on multiple disks) and folks wanted the same for the remake. Then there’s the more legitimate complaint that splitting the game up will mean that it’ll cost more since folks will have to buy multiple games. How this will eventually turn out is still up in the air as Square Enix is being very tight-lipped about the remake. However, we’ll have to see if splitting the game up was ultimately the best way to deliver this title.The Order: 1886’s receptionYou think I’m going to go one way with this, but there’s a swerve. While many people were disappointed with The Order’s length, quicktime events, and lack of original gameplay, I want to address this game from a different perspective. The most disappointing thing about The Order: 1886 is how it was received by people. Instead of accepting the game for what it brought to the table in terms of cinematic gameplay and amazing visuals, people were disappointed that it wasn’t the type of game they expected it to be. This is very unfair as a title should be judged on its own merits, not what it “should” have been.While there are some legitimate beefs to be had with the game — namely the boss fights and it not fully embracing the supernatural aspects of its world — it’s not the terrible game many make it out to be.Too many open world games!This last entry is a personal one that I wanted to include. I probably played less games this year than any other. However, I’ve spent most of the year playing games. How is that possible? Because nearly every game I played in 2015 was set in an open world.Dying Light, Batman: Arkham Knight, Metal Gear Solid V, and Fallout 4 were my main titles and each of them took me hundreds of hours to fully complete. That’s time I could have spent playing other games. Then there is the fact I had to skip out on other acclaimed games like The Witcher 3 and Just Cause 3 because they were also open world and I had my hands full with the three aforementioned games.I like open world games as much as the next guy, but it got to be too much in 2015. Here’s hoping we see smaller, more focused games in 2016.
Citation: Russian cosmologist suggests life could exist inside a black hole (2011, April 13) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-04-russian-cosmologist-life-black-hole.html © 2010 PhysOrg.com Black holes, as we all know, are entities that exist in space that have such strong gravitational forces that everything around them gets sucked in and swallowed up, never to be seen again. Well, not exactly, scientists know that deep inside rotating, charged black holes, past the event horizon (the point where time and space become one) things switch back to what would be considered normal (the Cauchy horizon) at least to the extent that photons can orbit the singularity. And it’s the existence of these photons that leads Dokuchaev to believe that other objects could conceivably exist as well, some of which could possibly harbor life forms; albeit their world would be radically different from what we know due to the presence of dramatic amounts of light from the photons that would also be trapped orbiting the singularity with them, not to mention constantly fluctuating tidal forces and bombardment by other energy sources.Dokuchaev, whose field is the study of the orbiting entities that do actually exist within the small subset of black holes, known as charged rotating black holes, as opposed to the Schwarzschild black hole (no movement) or Kerr black hole (no charge), clearly realizes that though his proclamations might be a bit extravagant, his science is clearly not. His theories expand on previous research that has shown that elementary light particles (photons) have been found to orbit the singularity in such black holes, in stable, periodic orbits. He asserts that there is no evidence to suggest that something larger, such as a planet with complicated chemistry could not do the same.Of course, if what Dokuchaev suggests is true, we’d almost certainly never know about it due to the impossibility of emissions from any such advanced civilizations escaping the immense gravity of the black hole in which they live; so the argument is rather moot, though certainly intriguing. (PhysOrg.com) — Going out on a limb, Russian cosmologist Vyacheslav Dokuchaev, of the Institute for Nuclear Research at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, has speculated in a paper published in arXiv, that due to the very unique conditions that exist past the event horizon in certain (charged and rotating) black holes, life could very possibly exist, and could very well have evolved into advanced civilizations.
