Fairer trade ‘key to global recovery’

first_img19 April 2012 Improving global trade conditions for lower-income countries is critical to stimulating the recovery of the global economy, Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies said ahead of a G20 ministerial meeting in Mexico on Thursday. Davies, who arrived in Mexico on Wednesday, said the G20 should tackle the growing threat of protectionism to ensure that lower-income countries could participate in global trade on fairer terms. “Participation of low-income countries in global trade is crucial for their growth and poverty reduction endeavours,” Davies said. “The G20 should foster concrete trade capacity measures to strengthen integration of regional markets and market access, and the availability of trade finance in developing countries.”BRICS ministers sceptical The G20 Trade Ministerial Meeting takes place in Mexico’s Pacific coast resort of Puerto Vallarta on Thursday and Friday. At the BRICS Summit in India in March, the trade ministers of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa expressed disappointed about the G20 meeting’s agenda. They argued that it appeared to undermine the independence and multilateral character of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) by asking trade ministers to agree on the creation of a super-body headed by the chiefs of OECD [Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development] countries and the WTO to oversee all the review and monitoring functions of global trade.World Investment Forum 2012 Following the G20 meeting, Davies will head to Qatar, where he will attend the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development organised World Investment Forum (WIF) 2012, taking place from 20 to 23 April. WIF 2012 will focus on the changing patterns of foreign investment in the post-crisis global economy, including investment in low-carbon growth and technologies. “It will also address investment-related challenges and opportunities arising from emerging global economic governance structures, and contribute to developing partnership and policy options for promoting sustainable investment,” said departmental spokesperson Sidwell Medupi. While in Qatar, Davies will co-chair a ministerial round table on policy challenges for investment and enterprise development with his Qatari counterpart, Mohamed Bin Saleh Al-Sada.

Twitter Continues to Friendly Things Up for New Users

first_imgSince its redesign last September, Twitter has said time and again that the site is not just for those who Tweet, but for those who consume. To that end, the company has worked to make it easier and easier for new users to find information related to their interests, with features like the “who to follow” page. Today, Twitter announced another feature to help onboard new users – search that makes it easier to find and follow Twitter accounts based on interest.The improved search comes alongside another new feature – the advanced search page – which takes the various operators that have always been available to Twitter users and makes them easily accessible in a Web form.“When you search for a topic,” writes Twitter’s Carolyn Penner, “you can now discover accounts that are relevant to that particular subject. […] This new approach helps you find the Twitter users that will best help you follow your interests.”According to Twitter, searches previously only returned accounts when the specific search term showed up in the user’s name or username. Why is this important for Twitter’s current direction? As Twitter’s VP for business and corporate development Kevin Thau saidjust before the site’s redesign, Twitter is not a social network. Rather, Twitter is for news, content and information. Twitter, when it comes to mainstream adoption, is for consumption. In addition to this interest-based search, Twitter now offers an advanced search page, which makes it easier to use the advanced search operators that have always been available. Users can search for tweets from, to or referencing specific people, near a location, or including specific words, phrases or hashtags. While this functionality was always available using search operators, a Twitter spokesperson explained that Twitter “wanted to make it easier for people to search Twitter and find the information they are looking for.” Related Posts Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Tags:#news#twitter#web The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videoscenter_img Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit mike melansonlast_img read more

Story Highlights The Spectrum Management Authority (SMA) will host approximately 40 girls from 14 high schools at their ‘Girls in ICT Day’ event, to be held at the Sagicor Auditorium in Kingston on April 26. Manager, Planning Department, at the SMA, Mahlangu Lawson, told JIS News that Girls in ICT Day is a global initiative to encourage girls and young women to consider studies and careers in information and communications technology (ICT). The Spectrum Management Authority (SMA) will host approximately 40 girls from 14 high schools at their ‘Girls in ICT Day’ event, to be held at the Sagicor Auditorium in Kingston on April 26.The event, which is a part of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) observation of the day, will be held under the theme ‘Expanding horizons, changing attitudes’.Manager, Planning Department, at the SMA, Mahlangu Lawson, told JIS News that Girls in ICT Day is a global initiative to encourage girls and young women to consider studies and careers in information and communications technology (ICT).Managing Director at the SMA, Maria Myers Hamilton, said that persons think of ICT as a male-dominated field, or think of it along the lines of call centres or business process outsourcing (BPO).However, she highlights that there are many more careers within ICT, including engineering, e-scrubber or digital currency advisor.“I find that in our communities, sometimes there is a sense of hopelessness among our young girls, not knowing what to choose or not having someone to have a conversation with about the possibilities, so this is an opportunity to empower the females,” Mrs. Myers Hamilton said.The Managing Director said that the girls will interface with persons who have made it in technology.She noted that the event will be opened by Member of Parliament for St. Andrew East Rural, the Most Hon. Juliet Holness, and will feature speakers such as the Minister of State in the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Hon. Alando Terrelonge; and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology, Hillary Alexander.Other presenters will come from telecoms organisations, such as Digicel, Flow, AGC Drones and Microsoft.The Managing Director said that the highlights will be activities undertaken by Microsoft as well as an interference signal hunt by the SMA at the Emancipation Park in New Kingston.Girls in ICT Day is globally observed annually on the last Thursday in April since 2011, and in Jamaica since 2015.last_img read more

NatGeo Measures its Carbon Footprint

first_imgNational Geographic, along with Verso Paper, Quad/Graphics and Harmony Environmental, recently completed a “cradle-to-grave” study to measure the magazine’s carbon footprint.The study caps a process initiated two years ago when National Geographic approached Verso to explore the idea. A year’s worth of planning between 2007 and 2008 was retooled to initiate a new test specifically for the plant that makes the paper for the magazine.”We were reluctant to wait for a new study to be completed,” said Hans Wegner, VP of production services at National Geographic, in a statement. “However, we were convinced there were enough significant differences mill-to-mill and grade-to-grade to warrant the undertaking of a separate study of our paper made at Verso’s Androscoggin, Maine mill in order to obtain accurate information.” Not content to simply measure the emissions from the paper mill, National Geograhic and Verso brought in the magazine’s printer, Quad/Graphics, to participate as well, giving the study a broader and more detailed look at the entire production process.The study measured the planting and harvesting of trees, paper manufacturing and printing, and the magazine’s delivery and disposal.Harmony Environmental independently compiled and analyzed the data, which revealed that 1.27 pounds of CO2 equivalents are emitted to produce the paper for one issue of National Geographic. Add in printing, distribution and the rest of the steps necessary to bring an issue to market and the total bumps up to 1.82 pounds. That, according to Verso, is the same amount of CO2 emitted by driving about two miles in a 20-mpg car.With a total paid and verified circ of just over 5,000,000 according to the magazine’s December 2008 publisher’s statement, that equates to about  9.1 million pounds of CO2 emissions.Backpacker released a similar study in March 2008, and discovered it produced 500,000 pounds per issue in 2007. That magazine has a total paid and verified circ of about 346,000.last_img read more

Tokyo 2020 medals are made from recycled electronics

first_img Now playing: Watch this: Share your voice The Olympic and Paralympic medals are made from recycled electronics. Tokyo 2020 Japan’s Tokyo 2020 has unveiled its Olympic medals made from recycled mobile phones. The Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games said its Tokyo 2020 Medal Project sourced small electronic devices from all over Japan to create 5,000 gold, silver and bronze medals.Tokyo 2020 had first announced it would be making its medals out of recycled electronics way back in February 2017, asking the public to donate its old or unwanted phones. Gold, silver and bronze were extracted from the phones, with the same method used in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

The Tokyo 2020 colors are added to the ribbon through more co2-friendly chemically-recycled polyester fibers.The medal cases are being created by Japanese craftworkers “with a blend of traditional and modern techniques.”In another effort to infuse its culture into the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Japanese artists are also re-creating flags of countries participating in the event as anime characters, though the project is not officially affiliated with the games.

New Study Reveals Human Trafficking Indicators

first_imgMike EmeryRebecca Pfeffer, assistant professor of criminal justice at the University of Houston- Downtown, partnered up with the Houston Police Department to help officers spot human trafficking cases versus prostitution.A new study has been released that could help Houston police officers better identify human trafficking in the city.The research analyzed almost 1,500 prostitution cases from 2014 to find key factors that aligned with human trafficking.Rebecca Pfeffer, assistant professor of criminal justice at the University of Houston-Downtown, partnered up with the Houston Police Department to help officers spot human trafficking cases versus prostitution.“They’ve been trained for so long to look at something that they’ve identified and called prostitution for so long that they can’t see the victimization behind some of those cases,” says Pfeffer.The most common indicators of human trafficking were victims under the age of 18, people who used coercion tactics, and depriving victims of alternatives.“So looking for things like that in the narrative of the police incident reports to see how many of these cases had these indicators,” says Pfeffer.HPD Deputy Larry Yium says the department is open to the study. And he says using evidence-based research helps provide a different perspective.“If we can reduce crime, or prevent crime and reduce victimization by changing some of our practices that’s very important just to society overall,” says Yium.The deputy said the department plans to implement recommendations from the study and take part in more human trafficking research in the future. 00:00 /01:12 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen X Sharelast_img read more

Growing Area West Of Houston Considers New Transportation Plan

first_imgListen Share 00:00 /00:00 Waller County remains primarily rural but it’s becoming home to a lot more people. Between 2010 and 2016 the county’s population grew by close to 16% percent. Alan Clark with the Houston-Galveston Area Council says you now have a situation where a suburban population is having to get around on old farm-to-market roads.“They take a lot of turns, to the right, to the left, up and down along the way,” explains Clark. “And some of those really need to be widened. They also need to be straightened.”H-GAC is now seeking input on its Waller County Transportation Plan, which Clark says will serve as a guide for future planning. Along with building new roads, Clark says they also need to find ways to preserve green space.“Waller County is a lot like our other counties,” says Clark. “It experiences significant flooding at different times. So drainage and flood management along major roadways is another issue that will be discussed.”And there’s also a strong desire to protect Waller County’s rural character, especially on the Katy Prairie and along the Brazos River.“I don’t believe the residents of Waller County want to see those natural assets disappear,” says Clark. “In fact I think they are looking for enhancement and protection for those areas.”There’s a couple of informational meetings where Waller County residents can comment on the plan. The first is October 10 at the Brookshire Convention Center. The second is October 12 at the Waller County Community Center in Prairie View. Both meetings have an open-house format and they’re from 6:00-8:00 PM. To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Xlast_img read more
