Government bodies must serve people Uzbek President stresses at UN assembly

“We are deeply convinced: the people must not serve the Government bodies, rather the Government bodies must serve the people,” said Shavkat Mirziyoyev, the President of Uzbekistan, at the general debate of the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly. In his address, the noted the country’s five-year development plan, prepared through nationwide discussions, as well as of initiatives in partnership with UN agencies, including the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) on advancing human development and rights. “The most important vector of reforms is liberalization of the economic system and creation of favourable investment climate. We proceed from one simple truth: the richer the people are – the stronger shall be the State,” he added, noting fiscal initiatives including switching to free conversion of the national currency. Further in his remarks, he also drew attention to the situation of the Aral Sea and urged for full implementation of the UN programme to assist the populations affected by the ecological disaster. Turning to the challenges posed by terrorism around the world, President Mirziyoyev called for strengthened multilateral cooperation to build social support for the youth, protection of their rights and interests, to save them from what he said was the “virus” of the ideology of violence. He also called for promoting universal access to education and for eradicating illiteracy and ignorance promote tolerance and mutual respect.Full statement available here read more

Uber driver vomit fraud sees customers wrongly charged £110 cleaning

Customers have claimed the photographs are staged by drivers attempting to claim the cash. Uber has refunded those… The costs can range from £15 for vacuuming, all the way to £115 for “significant quantities of body fluids (urine, blood or vomit) in the interior of the vehicle”. Victims of ‘vomit fraud’ are sent a mobile phone notification saying that an “adjustment” has been made to their bill for ‘cleaning’. Uber drivers have been accused of spraying liquid over the back seats of their cars in order to charge customers unwarranted cleaning fees. When the customers complained to Uber, the company sent them photographs taken by the driver of what they said was liquid or vomit on their seats.  read more

Nokias HumanForm concept phone is innovative but misses the point

first_imgDo you remember the bendy concept phone that Nokia demoed last month? It allowed you to control the phone by flexing, bending and stretching. The Finnish manufacturer has peeled back another layer of their experimental project, this time releasing a demo video of one of these handsets. As interesting as the idea sounds on paper, it reeks of innovation for innovation’s sake, and doesn’t bode well for the future of the Microsoft/Nokia alliance.The clip below shows a tear-drop shaped phone being manipulated much like a piece of clay. Pinch-to-zoom is replaced by bend-to-zoom, scroll-to-pan is now stretch-to-pan, and you no longer have to settle for merely looking at images–as this concept supposedly lets you feel images.Nokia calls the concept HumanForm, and is framing it as the next level of emotional interaction with a device. Supposedly the physical manipulation combines with (undemonstrated) voice interaction to make technology disappear behind the scenes and let intuition take over. It’s a positively Apple-like thing to promise.In fact, it might be too Apple-like of a thing to say. With Steve Jobs’ company rising to a dominant position in the mobile tech world over the last few years, now everyone is trying to copy their “intersection of arts and technology” formula. It’s similar to the worn-out pattern in Hollywood, where a movie is a surprising blockbuster, and then every new film for the next three years attempts to replicate what made it great. It’s as if Nokia gathered a meeting and told a bunch of engineers to anticipate the next stage of human-tech evolution, so they can beat Apple to the punch.That’s a noble enough goal, but this tech doesn’t appear to offer the kind of evolution that anyone is going to particularly care about. Is bending a phone more personal than swiping it? Is stretching the “skin” of a bendy phone more intuitive than tapping the screen? I don’t see it.Much of the appeal of multitouch phones and tablets comes from their displays acting as the window to another world. The display serves to establish Alice’s looking glass, and the multitouch is what lets us walk through it.But future-y concepts like Nokia’s HumanForm misinterpret that equation. When you’re bending and twisting the phone, your focus is shifted away from that world on the other side and towards the device itself. A great smartphone or tablet gets out of the way of what you’re doing; HumanForm gets in the way. It amps up the tactile interaction, but in the process it loses the appeal of picking it up in the first place.While flexible smartphones can eventually serve other purposes, like greater portability and damage resistance, the HumanForm interface strikes me as being just as gimmicky as the old Smell-o-vision odor projection systems that were attempted in the 1950’s. Both demonstrate that just because you can add an extra layer of sensory experience doesn’t mean that you’ll want to.When this is added to the recent Microsoft mobile concept video, I have to wonder about the Microsoft/Nokia alliance. It appears that the two companies, both beaten to the punch by iOS and Android, are pouring their resources into futuristic concepts that say “our mobile products may not be selling now, but wait until you see the future. We’re going to be awesome then.”You can check out the concept vid below and decide for yourself:via Yanko Designlast_img read more

By Gavan Casey Image: Photosport/Andrew Cornaga/INPHO RONAN O’GARA IS close to landing a defensive coaching role with France for the Rugby World Cup, according to a report in Midi-Olympique.The former Ireland out-half’s contract with Super Rugby powerhouses the Crusaders expires at the end of this season, and the French rugby publication claims O’Gara has already spoken on several occasions with both FFR chief Bernard Laporte and France head coach Jacques Brunel about a prospective ‘freelance’ job with Les Bleus.In his most recent Irish Examiner column, O’Gara denied having been contacted by the FFR. Midi-Olympique, however, report that the Cork man is “ready to land as soon as possible with the XV of France” after the conclusion of the Crusaders’ current campaign.The French paper suggests that O’Gara would work with France during the World Cup only, “without asking for more”.O’Gara would potentially fulfill his duties alongside current France defence coach Jean-Marc Bédérède, who would remain part of the staff. 37,940 Views Speaking on Off The Ball this morning, O’Gara’s former Munster and Ireland team-mate Alan Quinlan stated his belief that the acquisition of ‘ROG’ would provide a “big boost” for the French ahead of the big one this autumn.“I’m not sure how France will go at the World Cup — French rugby is crazy — but I think it would be a fantastic opportunity for him,” said the former back row. I can’t break any sort of protocol — he’ll kill me. Look, it’s quite open in France now that they have made contact.“I think to bring someone like him in would be a big boost.“I think his stock has risen so much in France and that’s coming from the players, there are a number of players in the French squad and Bernard Laporte would have spoken to them, like the move to New Zealand when they spoke to Dan Carter. If Dan Carter endorses you…“I’ve said this before but I’d love to see him as part of Andy Farrell’s coaching ticket going forward.”Subscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: Mar 25th 2019, 11:03 AM Share7 Tweet Email2 last_img read more

Assembly member proposes overhaul of Anchorage taxi industry

first_imgAn Anchorage Assembly member has introduced a bill that could radically reshape the taxi cab industry in Alaska’s largest city.Listen Now Fiscal conservative Bill Evans, who represents south Anchorage, is pushing a measure which would nearly double the number of cabs over the next five years, adding 116 new cars to the fleet, including 16 wheel-chair accessible vehicles. After those five years, there’d no longer be a fixed number of cab permits within the municipality, and Evans compared the application process to getting a fishing license: anyone eligible can apply.The goal of the ordinance is to make the taxi industry more competitive and improve service to customers, according to Evans. Many residents in the further parts of the municipality like Eagle River and south Anchorage complained publicly two years ago about the scarcity and expense of cabs when the startup company Uber was trying to establish a presence.The measure has a long way to go after it is officially introduced Tuesday, and Evans expects it to attract fierce resistance from the taxi industry in the months ahead.last_img read more

Egypt kills 12 in Sinai air strike

first_imgEgyptian jets bombed a gathering site of Sinai-based Islamist militants, killing 12 and destroying several four-wheel drive vehicles, the military said on Tuesday.An Islamist insurgency in the rugged, thinly populated Sinai Peninsula has gained pace since the military overthrew President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt’s oldest Islamist movement, in 2013 after mass protests against his rule.The air strikes “resulted in the killing of 12 highly dangerous … leaders of Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis”, the military said in a statement. It did not say when the aerial bombing took place.Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, Egypt’s most active militant group, swore allegiance to Islamic State in 2014 and adopted the name Sinai Province.It is blamed for the killing of hundreds of soldiers and policemen in attacks since then. The group has turned its guns on Egyptian Christians in recent months, killing around 100 in bombings at Coptic churches.President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi carried out air strikes on militants in Libya in response to a deadly attack on Coptic Christians last month that left at least 29 dead.Egypt’s military says it has killed thousands of militants in operations in Sinai. Residents of Sinai say the high death rates include civilians.Three other militants were killed on Tuesday in Egypt’s second city Alexandria.Police raided an apartment in the Mediterranean coastal city based on intelligence that wanted members of the Hasam militant group were hiding there, the Interior Ministry said.Police attempted to arrest the militants, the ministry said in a statement, but they shot at the force leading to a firefight. All three were killed.Hasam, a recently emerged group which is active in Cairo and other cities and is separate from Islamic State, claimed responsibility for a roadside bomb that killed a policeman on Sunday.Egypt says Hasam is the armed wing of the Muslim Brotherhood but the Brotherhood, the world’s oldest Islamist movement, denies any connection to Hasam and says it is peaceful.last_img read more

DC Embraces Poor Peoples Campaign

first_imgBy James Wright, Special to the AFRO, jwright@afro.comThere are many activities surrounding the call for the “Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival” launched by former North Carolina NAACP President the Rev. William Barber II. The District of Columbia will play a key part in the events.The Rev. Wanda Thompson, pastor of the Ambassador Baptist Church, is one of the leaders of the District’s contingent leading the Poor People’ Campaign. Thompson spoke about the campaign and the need for District residents to get involved at the May 12 Ward 8 Clergy and Faith Leaders Breakfast Meeting at the America’s Islamic Heritage Museum.The Rev. Graylan Hagler is a co-chair of D.C. effort with the Poor People’s Campaign. (Courtesy Photo)“This is a national movement,” Thompson said to the 30 people at the event. “We are calling for direct action across state capitals because our lawmakers must know that we will not tolerate poverty and discrimination in this country.”Since President Trump took office last year, Barber has criticized the White House and the Republican Congress on its inaction dealing with poverty, hunger, economic distress and systemic racism.Barber delivered a stirring message on fighting for the principles of the campaign on May 6 at the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, Thompson said, and District residents should pick up the mantle.“It has been calculated that 70 percent of every dollar circulated in the U.S. goes to war efforts and only 12 percent goes to social services,” she said. “This is not right. Many people in this country are living paycheck to paycheck and can be wiped out by a medical crisis.”Thompson outlined events to take place in the District, and around the country, dealing with specific issues. May 13-19 will deal with “Somebody’s Hurting Our People: Child Poverty, Women and People with Disabilities” and there will be weekly themes until a mass rally on June 23 in the District. Also in the District, there will be weekly Moral Mondays with a rally at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. action at the U.S. Capitol.“We are focusing on the Capitol because we know that D.C. laws are made there, in spite of the city council,” Thompson said.Thompson encouraged the ministers to get their congregations involved. In response to a question by the AFRO, she said the NAACP has embraced the campaign but wasn’t clear about other national Black organizations such as the Congressional Black Caucus, the National Urban League, and SCLC.“This is a grassroots movement,” she said. “We are organizing from the ground up and not by organization.”The co-chairs in the District are the Rev. Graylan Hagler of the Plymouth Congregational UCC, and the Rev. Terrence Mayo.Ambrose Lane Jr., a candidate for the at-large independent seat on the D.C. Council, supports the aims of the campaign, but has a concern. “One of the things Dr. King talked about was guaranteed jobs,” Lane told the AFRO. “But I checked the website of this campaign and there is no mention of that. I think that should be included.”Thompson responded to Lane by telling him “to get involved” and make his feelings known. “We need people to say things like we need guaranteed jobs,” she said. “This is not a one-time thing, it is a sustained effort and we need everybody to get involved.”last_img read more

Ole Miss Players Kneel in Response to Confederacy Rally

Morgan, The Associated PressEight University of Mississippi basketball players kneeled during the national anthem Feb. 23 before a victory over Georgia in response to a Confederacy rally near the arena.With the teams lined up across the court at the free throw lines, six players took a knee and bowed at the start of the “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Two other players later joined them.Six Mississippi basketball players take a knee during the national anthem before an NCAA college basketball game against Georgia in Oxford, Miss., Saturday, Feb. 23, 2019. (Nathanael Gabler/The Oxford Eagle via AP)“The majority of it was just that we saw one of our teammates doing it and didn’t want him to be alone,” Ole Miss scoring leader Breein Tyree said. “We’re just tired of these hate groups coming to our school and portraying our campus like we have these hate groups in our actual school.”The Confederacy demonstration took place a few hundred feet from the arena. In the aftermath of violence at a similar rally in 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Oxford community has been on alert.Various student groups held counter-protests on campus Feb. 21 and Feb. 22. Saturday’s march, led by Pro-Confederate groups Confederate 901 and the Hiwaymen, also drew counter-protesters. The march began at the Confederate monument on the city square and ended at another Confederate monument in the heart of the Ole Miss campus.“This was all about the hate groups that came to our community to try spread racism and bigotry,” Ole Miss coach Kermit Davis said. “It’s created a lot of tension for our campus. Our players made an emotional decision to show these people they’re not welcome on our campus, and we respect our players freedom and ability to choose that.”Kneeling during the anthem has become a popular way for athletes — starting with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick — to protest racial injustice and inequality.Ole Miss beat Georgia 72-71.last_img read more

Game of Thrones takes over Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas

first_img Share Tuesday, April 2, 2019 Tags: Game of Thrones, Las Vegas By: The Associated Press << Previous PostNext Post >> LAS VEGAS — Winter came to Las Vegas.Fire-breathing dragons held court over the world-famous fountains at the Bellagio casino-resort Sunday, as familiar elements from the TV phenomenon “Game of Thrones” were projected on the rising water. The jets danced to a score incorporating the recognizable theme song before one of the colossal beasts lit up the lake along the Las Vegas Strip in a blaze of pyrotechnics.The 3 1/2-minute spectacle that left a crowd of onlookers cheering debuted two weeks ahead of the scheduled premiere of the HBO fantasy series’ final season.The streaming water formed the show’s iconic throne and crown. A towering 800-foot-long (244-meter) wall of water emerged from the lake.The display, however, intentionally did not reveal any elements of the new season.“We didn’t just want to portray literally scenes from ‘Game of Thrones’ here, not like a teaser or a preview of season eight,” said Mark Fuller, CEO of WET Design, the company that created the fountains and show. “We want to bring you the emotion.”At the heart of the fountain show is the giant wall of water. It represents the ice wall that defines the TV show, but also serves as a surface onto which the creators project falling snow, the series’ logo and the silhouettes of the dragons breathing orange and blue flames.More news:  Hotel charges Bollywood star $8.50 for two bananas and the Internet has thoughtsThe company worked with the series’ composer Ramin Djawadi to create a special score that along with the dancing water aimed to capture the excitement of the TV hit.The fountain show begins by dropping musical hints of the TV series, using Djawadi’s “Winter is Here” from the seventh season. It comes to full force as the show’s recognizable “Main Titles” theme song comes on.“We have to make sure that the fountain gives the same kind of energy, the same kind of drama, that people are associating this music with,” said Peter Kopik, director of design and choreography for WET Design. “(That) was the hard part of the choreography because it’s continuously energetic and continuously up and loud and strong, and choreography had to reflect the same thing and not being tiring at the same time.”Game of Thrones’ Composer Ramin Djawadi and WET Design CEO Mark FullerThe spectacle ends as the shadow of the Night King appears one last time, and flames cover part of the roughly 392,040-square-foot (36,421-square-meter) lake.More news:  Can you guess the one and only hotel company to rank on Indeed’s Top Workplaces in Canada list?The “Game of Thrones” fountain show marks the first time the lake has been set ablaze, but artists and others have previously used the fountains for a variety of stunts. Billionaire Richard Branson rode a jet ski on the lake in 2010, and Drake performed one of his hits there during the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.The landmark at the luxury property owned by MGM Resorts International attracts millions of visitors every year. It has nightly shows with recorded music ranging from Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman’s duet “Time to Say Goodbye” to Sin City’s unofficial hymn “Viva Las Vegas” sung by Elvis Presley.“The Bellagio fountain is iconic. It’s known around the world, and so is Game of Thrones,” Djawadi said. “So, I think putting them together and seeing the music choreographed to a fountain like that is quite the spectacle. I think it will get everybody really pumped for this final season coming up.”The special fountain show will run nightly until April 13, the day before the eighth season’s premiere.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   Arizona Cardinals – It’s still hard to take the Cardinals seriously as a contender. It has nothing to do with the team’s talent and coaching staff, both of which are top-notch. It’s just one of those deals about the leopard and its spots. I keep waiting for University of Phoenix Stadium to disappear and the woeful Cardinals to magically be transformed back to playing in front of half-empty bleachers at Arizona State, like this was all a dream from a Kangol-wearing Cinderella-like godfather.The Cardinals came to Arizona for the 1988 season and played 18 seasons at Sun Devil Stadium, making the playoffs just once (1998). Since moving into their $455 million venue in 2006, the Cards have made the playoffs four times in 10 years with one trip to the Super Bowl.Now, Chase joins a list of analysts, bloggers and columnists who think Arizona can reach the Super Bowl again, perhaps winning it this time behind a “Kangol-wearing” head coach in Bruce Arians.The 2015 NFC West Division-winning Cardinals went 13-3, and return with the offensive weapons that led last year’s NFL in yards.
