Government broadband plan revealed

first_imgSunday 5 December 2010 10:58 pm THE government will this morning announce an £830m strategy it hopes will make the UK the leading broadband network in Europe by 2015.A new paper will set out plans to stimulate private investment and encourage competition in the industry.This will involve encouraging firms to share their infrastructure in order to lower the costs of rolling out fast internet access.The proposals include connecting every community to the broadband network by the end of this parliament – regardless of how remote they are.Culture, media and sport minister Jeremy Hunt said: “A superfast network will be the foundation for a new economic dynamism, creating hundreds of thousands of jobs and adding billions to our GDP.Matthew Fell, CBI director for competitive markets, said: “We welcome the Government’s strategy for achieving the best superfast broadband network in Europe by 2015. Now more than ever, it is crucial that the UK can compete for business and drive economic growth on the basis of its digital infrastructure, particularly in industries where we have a natural strength such as the creative sectors.“Government must now work with private sector operators to ensure that they have the framework they require to invest with certainty and confidence in the UK market.” Share KCS-content Read This NextFresh Fruit Sushi: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCreamy Pumpkin Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily Proof’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofA Once in 17 Years Cicada Event in Princeton, New JerseyFamily Proof by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Countries could intervene again to help the yen

first_img Show Comments ▼ FOREIGN exchange traders will be closely watching the yen’s movement today following the G7’s dramatic intervention to stem the currency’s gains late last week. Traders are on alert for further central bank moves to ease any runaway increases in the yen, which if left unchecked would make Japan’s exports more expensive and put further pressure on its economy. Friday’s move by the G7, in which the countries poured in an estimated $25bn, was the first joint intervention in currency markets since the G7 came to the aid of the newly launched euro in 2000.Some analysts feared that a massive repatriation of Japanese money to pay for the repairs needed would put upward pressure on the yen. Meanwhile, Societe Generale analysts said in a note yesterday they were confident in the Japanese economy’s eventual recovery. “We still find the most likely outcome to be a V-shaped profile with the upcoming data seeing a very sharp decline followed by a sharp acceleration as reconstruction and the replacement of consumer durables gets on the way,” they said.Tokyo’s markets remain closed for a holiday today. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodaySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesHistorical GeniusHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeHistorical GeniusBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepedia KCS-content Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

The managed business, named Spirit, will be expanded to about 1,000 pubs.Punch Taverns has been struggling with falling profits and rising debt, which hit £3.3bn last year.The group yesterday said Walker Boyd would be joining the board as a non-executive director.

El obispo Orlando Guerrero votó contra las resoluciones relacionadas con los matrimonios del mismo sexo, lo que me hace pensar que su plataforma teológica es más cercana a la de los obispos africanos y de GAFCON que a la plataforma teológica de la iglesia episcopal Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector Collierville, TN Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Sophie Fields says: Press Release Service Los primados de la Comunión Anglicana rezan durante el oficio de vísperas en la catedral de Cantórbery el 11 de enero, el primer día de los cinco que dura su reunión. Foto de la catedral de Cantórbery.[Episcopal News Service — Cantórbery, Inglaterra] Una mayoría de los primados anglicanos pidió el 14 de enero que la Iglesia Episcopal, durante un período de tres años, “no nos represente en organismos ecuménicos e interreligiosos, ni debe ser nombrada o electa a un comité permanente interno y que, si bien participe en los organismos internos de la Comunión Anglicana, no tome parte en el proceso de la toma de decisiones sobre ningún asunto perteneciente a la doctrina o al sistema de gobierno”.Al expresar su deseo unánime de trabajar juntos, los primados dijeron que su llamado se produce en respuesta a la decisión de la Convención General de la Iglesia Episcopal en junio pasado de cambiar el lenguaje canónico que define el matrimonio como [la relación contraída] entre un hombre y una mujer (Resolución A036) y autorizar dos nuevos ritos matrimoniales con un lenguaje que permite [indistintamente] ser usados por parejas del mismo sexo o de sexos opuestos (Resolución A054).Un anuncio publicado en la página web de los Primados 2016 dice que “los Primados acordaron el modo en que andarían juntos en la gracia y el amor de Cristo”.“Este acuerdo reconoce la significativa distancia que se mantiene, pero confirma su unánime compromiso de andar juntos”, dice el anuncio, que incluye el texto completo del llamado de los primados. El anuncio dice también que el acuerdo “demuestra el compromiso de todos los Primados de continuar la vida de la Comunión sin vencedores ni vencidos”.Antes de la votación del 14 de enero, el obispo primado de la Iglesia Episcopal, Michael B. Curry dijo a los primados reunidos en Cantórbery, Inglaterra, del 11 al 15 de enero, que la declaración sería recibida con pesar por muchos en la Iglesia Episcopal.“Muchos de nosotros nos hemos comprometido y nuestra Iglesia [se ha comprometido] a ser ‘una casa de oración para todo el pueblo’, como dice la Biblia, donde todos son realmente acogidos”, dijo Curry en comentarios que posteriormente compartió con Episcopal News Service.“Nuestro compromiso de ser una Iglesia inclusiva no se basa en una teoría social o en una capitulación ante las maneras de la cultura, sino en nuestra creencia de que los brazos extendidos de Jesús en la cruz son un signo del verdadero amor de Dios que nos alcanza a todos nosotros. Si bien entiendo que muchos discrepen con nosotros, nuestra decisión respecto al matrimonio se basa en la creencia de que las palabras del apóstol Pablo a los Gálatas son válidas para la Iglesia actual: ‘todos los que han sido bautizados en Cristo, están revestidos de Cristo. Ya no hay judío ni gentil, [no hay] esclavo ni libre, [no hay] varón ni mujer, porque todos somos uno en Cristo’”.“Para muchos, pues, que están comprometidos a seguir a Jesús en el camino del amor y ser una Iglesia que vive ese amor, esta decisión les dará un auténtico pesar”, afirmó. “Para los hermanos discípulos de Jesús en nuestra Iglesia que son homosexuales, el pesar será mayor. Para muchos que se han sentido y que han sido rechazados por familias y comunidades, nuestra Iglesia abriéndose en amor fue un signo de esperanza. Y esto le añadirá pesar al pesar”.Curry le dijo a los primados que él no estaba en modo alguno comparando su propio pesar al de ellos, pero “estoy aquí ante ustedes como vuestro hermano. Estoy ante ustedes como un descendiente de esclavos africanos, a quienes robaron de su tierra nativa, esclavizaron en amarga servidumbre y luego, incluso después de la emancipación, segregaron y excluyeron en la Iglesia y en la sociedad. Y esto hace evocar de nuevo ese sufrimiento, y produce pesar.“El  dolor de muchos será real. Pero Dios es más grande que nada. Amo a Jesús y amo a la Iglesia. Soy un cristiano en la vía anglicana. Y al igual que ustedes, como hemos dicho en esta reunión, estoy comprometido a ‘andar juntos’ con ustedes como hermanos primados de la familia anglicana”.La declaración de los primados también le pide al arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby que nombre un equipo de trabajo “para mantener conversaciones entre nosotros con la intención de restaurar la relación, de rehacer la confianza mutua, de sanar el legado del dolor, reconociendo el alcance de lo que tenemos en común, y explorando nuestras profundas diferencias, garantizando que las mismas se mantengan  entre nosotros en el amor y la gracia de Cristo”.El anuncio respecto a las sanciones decía que se harían ulteriores comentarios y se responderían a preguntas en una conferencia de prensa que tendría lugar a las 3:00 PM, hora local, del 15 de enero.Los primeros dos días de la reunión se dedicaron solamente a establecer la agenda de la semana y la discusión se centró en si los primados debían llegar a un acuerdo sobre cómo seguir adelante a pesar de las diferencias de opinión respecto a problemas de interpretación teológica y a la sexualidad humana.El éxodo bastante esperado de algunos arzobispos africanos conservadores no se llegó a producir y todos los primados se mantuvieron en la mesa durante la reunión del 11 al 15, comprometidos a proseguir el diálogo y a discernir sobre varias opciones hacia la reconciliación. El arzobispo Stanley Ntagali, de la Iglesia Anglicana de Uganda, abandonó discretamente la reunión el 12 de enero. Él había dicho en una declaración previa a la reunión que él se retiraría a menos que “la disciplina y el orden devoto” se restauraran en la Comunión Anglicana. En una carta dirigida a su Iglesia el 13 de enero, Ntagali dijo que él se había retirado porque la asamblea provincial ugandesa había resuelto no participar en ninguna reunión oficial de la Comunión hasta que se restaurara el orden.ENS supo por uno de los arzobispos que en la mañana del miércoles se había sometido a la votación de los primados [una resolución] en que se le pedía a la Iglesia Episcopal que se retirara voluntariamente de la Comunión Anglicana por un período de tres años. [Esta propuesta] fue rechazada por 20 votos en contra y 15 a favor, aunque ese retiro no es acorde con los procesos de la membresía provincial tal como se definen en la constitución del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, el principal organismo normativo de la Comunión. El CCA debe reunirse del 8 al 20 de abril en Lusaka, Zambia.El arzobispo Foley Beach, líder de la Iglesia Anglicana en América del Norte (ACNA, por su sigla en inglés), ha estado sosteniendo conversaciones con los primados a lo largo de la semana, pero no ha participado en ninguna de las votaciones. Welby invitó a Beach en un esfuerzo por evitar un boicot de los arzobispos africanos conservadores semejante al que tuvo lugar en la última Reunión de los Primados en 2011. La ACNA está compuesta en gran medida de ex episcopales que decidieron retirarse de la Iglesia Episcopal. Algunos primados africanos han declarado su afiliación a la ACNA.El miércoles por la tarde, la agenda había pasado a otros apremiantes asuntos que afectan la Comunión Anglicana, tales como la labor de ayuda y desarrollo, y su respuesta a la guerra y a los conflictos.Curry, que fue instalado como obispo presidente y primado de la Iglesia Episcopal en noviembre pasado, asiste a su primera Reunión de los Primados.Luego de su elección en junio de 2015, Curry dijo que la Comunión Anglicana es tanto acerca de relaciones y asociaciones como acerca de estructura y organización. “Hemos conseguido tareas que hacer; tenemos alguna tarea de Jesús que hacer”, afirmó. “Este mundo clama por nosotros  y nos necesita, y la Comunión Anglicana es una manera en que Dios nos usa unidos para hacer realmente de este mundo un mundo mejor”.Los primados son los principales arzobispos y obispos presidentes electos o nombrados para dirigir cada una de las 38 provincias autónomas de la Comunión Anglicana. El arzobispo de Cantórbery los invita a la Reunión de los Primados para consultas sobre asuntos teológicos, sociales e internacionales.La Reunión de los Primados de la Comunión Anglicana es uno de los tres instrumentos de la Comunión, siendo los otros dos la Conferencia de Lambeth [que reúne a todos los obispos de la Comunión] y el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, el principal organismo normativo de la Comunión. Al arzobispo de Cantórbery, como primus inter pares, o “primero entre iguales” se le reconoce como el centro de la unidad de la Comunión Anglicana.Cada provincia se relaciona con las otras provincias dentro de la Comunión Anglicana por estar en plena comunión con la Sede de Cantórbery. El arzobispo de Cantórbery convoca la Conferencia de Lambeth, preside la Reunión de los Primados y es el presidente del CCA.En algunas provincias anglicanas al primado se le llama arzobispo o metropolitano, o ambas cosas, mientras en otras se usa el término de obispo presidente, o de primus [otra manera de decir primado] como en Escocia.El arzobispo de Cantórbery también invita a las reuniones de primados a los moderadores que presiden las iglesias ecuménicas unidas del Norte de la India, el Sur de la India y Pakistán.En 1978, el arzobispo Donald Coggan, el 101er. arzobispo de Cantórbery, estableció la Reunión de los Primados como una oportunidad de “meditación pausada, oración y  consulta a profundidad”.Los primados se han reunido en Ely, Inglaterra, en 1979; Washington, D.C., en 1971; Limurú, Kenia, en 1983; Toronto, Canadá, en 1986; Chipre en 1989; Newcastle, Irlanda del Norte, en 1991; Ciudad del Cabo, Sudáfrica, en 1993; Windsor, Inglaterra, en 1995; Jerusalén en 1997; Oporto, Portugal, en 2000; Centro de Conferencias de Kanuga, Hendersonville, Carolina del Norte, en 2001; Cantórbery, Inglaterra, en 2002; Gramodo, Brasil, en mayo de 2003; Londres, Inglaterra, en octubre de 2003; Newry, Irlanda del Norte, en febrero de 2005; Dar es-Salam, Tanzania, en febrero de 2007; Alejandría, Egipto, en febrero de 2009 y Dublín, Irlanda, en enero de 2011.Las provincias y primados de la Comunión Anglicana aparecen listados aquí.Visite la página web oficial de los Primados 2016Siga a @Primates2016 en Twitter— Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

French authorities will not execute international warrant for Florence Hartmann’s arrest

first_imgNews May 10, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders welcomes the French government’s decision not to execute theinternational warrant for former French journalist Florence Hartmann’s arrest which the Hague-based International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia issued after convicting her ofcontempt of court.The French foreign ministry said today that the charge on which Hartmann was convicted was notone of “the serious crimes that this tribunal has the job of trying” and that therefore “France hasno legal basis for any cooperation” with the court in connection with the warrant.Reporters Without Borders urges other European countries to follow France’s example. Hartmannwas just doing her job as a reporter to provide information. There are absolutely no grounds forjailing her.Le Monde’s former Balkans correspondent, Hartmann also worked for a while as spokespersonfor the tribunal’s prosecutor. In 2009, the tribunal ordered her to pay a fine of 7,000 eurosfor revealing confidential information about former Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic’s trial,including information that helped to establish Serbia’s involvement in the 1996 Srebrenicamassacre.The sentence was changed to seven days in prison on 16 October 2011.—–17.10.2011 Arrest warrant against ex-spokeswoman smacks of revenge by Hague tribunalReporters Without Borders is dumbfounded by the arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) against its former spokeswoman, Florence Hartmann, who was convicted of contempt of court in 2009 for disclosing confidential documents.The Hague-based court imposed a fine of 7,000 euros on Hartmann, a French journalist and onetime spokeswoman of prosecutor Carla del Ponte, after ruling that she “knowingly and wilfully interfered with the administration of justice.” Organisation RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story News The tribunal confirmed the original verdict on appeal on 19 July and issued a deadline for the payment of the fine. Hartmann said the judgment was biased and refused to acknowledge it so long as she was denied an independent appeal.The tribunal’s appeal chamber issued an order on 16 October to the French authorities to “search for, arrest, detain and quickly hand over to the tribunal Florence Hartmann” adding that her fine had been converted into a seven-day prison term.“This arrest warrant is only the tip of the iceberg, the latest in a series of infringements of my rights,” Hartmann told Reporters Without Borders.“The lack of impartiality among the judges who convicted me has been acknowledged but the procedure has continued on the basis of the foundations they laid.“There is no provision for external redress against decision by the ICTY and we have reached a legal impasse. The tribunal believes itself to be accountable to no-one, not even the European Court of Human Rights.“We shall have to innovate and create new laws. With this arrest warrant, the ICTY has involved governments in my case. If they carry out its ruling, they will also be accountable for the infringements that it has committed.In her 2007 book “Peace and Punishment”, the journalist mentioned the existence of two judgments made by the tribunal’s appeals chamber as part of the trial of former Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic, which allegedly implicate the Serbian government in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.“I have never been prosecuted for breach of confidentiality, but for my journalistic investigations,” she said. “I have been accused of disclosing information, part of which was confidential, but the precise nature of this information was only pointed out to me on appeal.“In the end, it was not a question of the existence of the two judgments mentioned in my book (which was already public knowledge) but of the judges’ legal reasoning. So from the outset, I was not aware of the charges against me.”Reporters Without Borders urges the French legal system to determine the validity of the arrest warrant that has been delivered to it and to consider the merits of the case in accordance with the case law of the European Court of Human Rights.“The European Court of Human Rights has consistently emphasized the public interest in the reporting of legal issues,” the organization said. “It would be illogical and dangerous if international justice was exempt.” “The conviction of Florence Hartmann was an outrage and contravened international case law relating to freedom of expression (see article),” the press freedom organization said. “Will France, for the first time in a very long time, imprison a journalist for something she has written?” “It would be particularly ironic if the penalization of press offences makes its return in the European Union through international justice. The tribunal’s absurd persecution of her indubitably smacks of revenge, which is a far cry from the values it is meant to embody.

He was rescued by park rangers.Another visitor reported that the man had fallen around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. Search-and-rescue crews found him alive but seriously injured on a narrow ledge about 70 feet down from the cliff around 9 p.m., officials said.Rescue crews were able to extract him from the ledge using ropes and a helicopter from the Department of Defense, according to the park. He was then airlifted to Hilo Medical Center for urgent care.A caldera is a cauldron-shaped hollow that forms after a large volume of magma erupts in a short period of time. Last year, a series of eruptions at the Kīlauea volcano prompted widespread evacuations in the surrounding areas. Kilauea is one of five volcanoes on the Big Island and is one of the most active volcanoes in the world, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.The last fatal fall in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park occurred on Oct. 29, 2017, officials said.“Visitors should never cross safety barriers, especially around dangerous and destabilized cliff edges,” Chief Ranger John Broward said in a statement. “Crossing safety barriers and entering closed areas can result in serious injuries and death.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
