Rankin meanwhile quoted the British Foreign Ministry as saying that Britain will look to Sri Lanka, as any other CHOGM host, to demonstrate it’s commitment to uphold the Commonwealth values of good governance and respect to human rights. The British government is undecided on attending the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Sri Lanka later this year.The British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka and Maldives John Rankin quoted the British Foreign Ministry as saying last month that it was too early to say if Britain will attend the summit and at what level it will be represented. The Commons Foreign Affairs Committee said it was wrong for Colombo to host the heads of government meeting amid reports of continuing “serious abuses”.The PM should not attend unless he had clear evidence of progress, it added. British Prime Minister David Cameron was in November last year urged by British MPs to consider boycotting the Commonwealth summit in Sri Lanka in protest at its human rights record. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has already said he will boycott the biennial event in November 2013 unless Sri Lanka’s human rights record improves. (Colombo Gazette) read more
In May, the Sri Lankan Government acknowledged receiving at least 65,000 complaints of enforced disappearances since 1995. Sri Lankans are still waiting for the legislation that would make enforced disappearances a crime under Sri Lankan law, Amnesty International said in a statement today.When Sri Lanka co-sponsored UN Human Rights Council Resolution 30/1 in October 2015, among the commitments made were initiatives to account for enforced disappearances. Amnesty International also said that Sri Lanka must step up its reform efforts in genuine consultation with victims and with all Sri Lankans. (Colombo Gazette) In this regard, Amnesty International said welcomed Sri Lanka’s ratification in May of the UN Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance.“Families hoped that the Office on Missing Persons would finally, after years of waiting, deliver the truth about the fate of their missing loved ones, but expressed frustration that they were not adequately consulted before its creation. This is a lesson for other promised truth and justice mechanisms. Sri Lanka has acknowledged that the Prevention of Terrorism Act (which contributed to enforced disappearances) does not meet international standards. It issued directives designed to protect detainees but people continue to be detained under the Act. Lawmakers should repeal the Act and stop its use immediately,” Amnesty International said. “There is however still much more to be done to ensure that victims and their families can reliably expect truth, justice and reparation for the grave crimes under international law that they and their loved ones have experienced,” Amnesty International said. read more
BEIJING, China – Beijing’s escalating condemnation of South Korea over a U.S. anti-missile system has triggered protests against a popular retail giant and a reported ban on Chinese tour groups visiting the country, apparent signs that Beijing plans to make Seoul pay an economic price over a move that China says threatens its security.Protests have sprung up in the last few days against Lotte Mart, a South Korean hypermarket chain that sells food, clothing, toys and electronics. Its parent company, Lotte Group, agreed Monday to provide a golf course to the government to site the system. The protests outside Lotte stores and boycotts of its products follow weeks of condemnation of the South Korean government and warnings against Lotte’s move by government officials and state media.Seoul and Washington say the system is needed to defend against North Korea’s missile threat and is not targeted at any other regional states. China says the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence, or THAAD, threatens its security because its radars are capable of peering deep into the country’s north and parts of Russia, allowing Washington and Seoul to monitor flights and missile launches.Asked about the protests, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said Friday: “There are absolutely no anti-THAAD campaigns in China, still less violent campaigns.” He added that Beijing hoped Seoul “can heed the voice of the people and take effective measures to avoid further damage to the China-South Korea relationship.”China is South Korea’s largest trading partner and a key source of inbound tourism, leaving it vulnerable to Chinese economic disruptions.Following weeks of rumours, South Korea’s state-run tourism agency said Friday that travel agents in China said they had been told to stop selling group trips to South Korea.About 8 million Chinese tourists visited South Korea last year, accounting for nearly half of the 17.2 million total foreign tourists to the country, according to the state-run Korea Tourism Organization. A survey of 6,000 Chinese tourists in 2015 found about 40 per cent came in package group tours, the tourism agency said.China National Tourism Administration did not immediately respond to faxed questions.Following government statements against Lotte, a food producer in central Henan province’s Luohe city, Weilong Food, said it was pulling its products from Lotte stores, while retailer Ruixiang said it would stop purchasing South Korean products and called Lotte “an immoral corporation.”Chen Ou, the chief executive of Jumei, a Chinese cosmetics company, announced on his Sina Weibo account that they had stopped selling hundreds of Lotte products.China’s commerce ministry spokesman Sun Jiwen on Thursday reiterated that China attached “great importance to economic and trade co-operation with South Korea and welcomes foreign investment from foreign companies, including Korean companies. But, he added without eleboration, that applied “only if the companies concerned operate according to Chinese regulations.”Beijing has also levelled its sights at South Korean entertainment exports that are enormously popular in China. Industry insiders say Chinese companies have been told they can no longer purchase new South Korean dramas or other TV shows, or invest in new co-productions with South Korean movie and program makers.Public protests have included one last weekend outside a Lotte Mart in the northeastern province of Jilin in which people held up a long banner which read “South Korea’s Lotte declares a war against China; Lotte supports (the anti-missile system); get out of China now!”The Lotte conglomerate operates 99 big discount chain stores, 13 small supermarkets and five department stores in China.Chinese authorities have stepped up inspections on its businesses in recent months, checking for tax and building code violations. The construction of its shopping and entertainment complex in Shenyang city was halted in November after an inspection found some lapses. Lotte is fixing those lapses before applying for a permission to resume construction.The company said it had no comment Friday, but one of its units, Lotte Duty Free, said that its shopping websites were knocked offline Thursday by what it believed to be a cyberattack from Chinese IP addresses. The duty free store operator said it took more than six hours to recover.“We estimate the damage to be as much as several hundreds of million won,” it said in a statement, the equivalent of about $90,000.On Friday, investors concerned about possible retaliation dumped shares in South Korean companies that rely on trade with China. South Korea’s largest cosmetics company, Amorepacific, which counts China as its key business, sank more than 10 per cent, and tourism companies also fell.___AP writers Youkyung Lee and Hyung-jin Kim in Seoul, and researcher Yu Bing and news assistant Liu Zheng in Beijing, contributed to this report.

Natasha Devon, the Government’s former mental health tsarCredit: Ken McKay/ITV/REX/Shutterstock “I want to guard against that and ensure there’s appropriate representation but it doesn’t concern me that it would ever happen,” she said.”It would maybe make us look at why there weren’t a proportionate number of candidates coming forward.”Students can apply for the roles in writing with references from their tutors. Then there is a hustings where their peers vote and an interview with a panel of sixth-form management. Natasha Devon, the Government’s former mental health tsar, has previously said that teachers should not refer to pupils as “girls” or “ladies” because it means they are “constantly reminded of their gender”.She said that she would “never walk into a room in an-all girls’ school and say girls or ladies” because it was “patronising”.Rather than addressing children as “boys” or “girls”, she said that teachers should use gender-neutral terms such as “pupils”, “students” or “people”. A Grammar school which scrapped its head boy and head girl roles in a bid to establish gender neutral titles has ended up with two male student leaders.The Grammar School in Guernsey is now led by a chair and vice-chairperson and a Student Voice Leadership Team.Liz Coffey, the school’s headteacher, said she hopes that changing the titles of the roles is more inclusive as it does away with male and female stereotypes.She said she does not want students to see jobs as being “gender specific”, and the new position titles prepare children for the workplace.”That gives the students the experience of what it actually might be like when they enter the workplace,” Mrs Coffey said.”Its our responsibility to ensure young people are educated and made ready for that world.” She explained that she wants children to feel that they have been chosen for a position “not because of [their] gender but because [they] are the best person for the position.”Just like I am not a headmistress, I am a head teacher, it is important because of job credibility. People will still draw a nurse as a woman when asked,” she said. “This is another way to try and ensure stereotypes disappear. It’s a very good thing to have on your CV.” Meanwhile, the term “boys” carries connotations of “being macho, not talking about your feelings, being told to man up”. However, Cheryl Giovannoni, chief executive of the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST), disagreed with this advice, saying that teachers should “celebrate women”.She said that teachers should not attempt to “wrap girls in cotton wool”, adding that they will “call you out” if you are “hiding” from the fundamental problems. The headteacher said she wants pupils to be prepared for the world of workCredit:Philip Toscano This year two boys took the roles of chair and vice chairperson of the board with three girls sitting on the team. Mrs Coffey said she would look to address any issues with imbalance and hopes to destroy stereotypical gender roles. Another reason not to use gendered terms like girls or boys is because there may be transgender people in the room, she added.Ms Devon said that using the term “girls” can evoke a sense that they have to do everything perfectly which can “create a lot of anxiety” in children and teenagers. read more
Over the weekend Apple has confirmed that there is an issue with the rubber bottom of MacBooks shipped between October 2009 and April 2011. More specifically, the bottom casing can seperate from the machine. The issue stems from a problem with the glue used to attach the base to the laptop.In response, Apple has started a replacement program that will be completely free for all MacBook owners. There are two options. The first is to visit your local Apple Store where the bottom panel can be replaced by a Genius, but, this will only be done if your MacBook “exhibits the issue.” You may also visit an Apple Authorized Service Provider for the same replacement.AdChoices广告If you want to replace it regardless, or don’t have time to go to an Apple Store, then there is another option. Apple will ship out a replacement kit free of charge upon request. This kit comes with everything you need to do the replacement yourself and includes a new rubber bottom, screws, Philips screwdriver, and easy to follow instructions.Any repairs already carried out will be refunded, and your new bottom casing can be claimed two years from your original MacBook purchase date.More at the MacBook Bottom Case Replacement Program, via 9to5MacMatthew’s OpinionApple is doing the right thing by replacing and fitting the new bottom for free. I especially like the fact they will ship you a kit to do it yourself. But this hasn’t been a fast reaction to the problem. The image I used above was from a MacRumors forum post dated June 8, 2010. Owners have been paying a lot of money for the repair, and it has been almost a year before Apple finally took responsibility.The only upside is Apple will refund you, but I guess you need to prove the repair happened at either a Store or authorized service provider. I really hope everyone who did that kept their receipt. read more
Plastic Logic announced its plan in 2008 to launch a thin, lightweight e-reading device. Unlike other similar devices, the ProReader was expected to target business users by supporting documents in Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint formats as well as Adobe PDFs, along with newspapers, magazines and books.The company officially debuted the Que reader at the Consumer Electronics Show in January and pegged a ship date of mid-April. By March, the company said it was pushing the release back to sometime this summer. The release was pushed back again in late June.With an 8.5 X 11 inch touchscreen display, two models of the Que ProReader were marketed: a 4GB version for $649 and a 8GB/3G model for $799. It is not immediately clear if the Plastic Logic customers who pre-ordered the device over the last several months will be issued a refund. A Plastic Logic spokesperson did not immediately return an e-mail seeking comment. In a growing and increasingly competitive market, one e-reader device maker is feeling the heat. After delaying the release of its Que ProReader twice this year, Mountain View, California-based Plastic Logic has pulled the plug on the device altogether.”We recognize the market has dramatically changed, and with the product delays we have experienced, it no longer make sense for us to move forward with our first generation electronic reading product,” Plastic Logic CEO Richard Archuleta says in a statement posted to the company’s Web site. “This was a hard decision, but is the best one for our company, our investors and our customers.”Archuleta says the company will take time to re-enter the market as it redesigns and retools for a “next generation” ProReader product. “We continue to perfect our core plastic electronic technology and manufacturing processes that are central to our product’s unique value proposition,” he says. read more
Think of Ghazals and the first name that pops to your head in Ustad Ghulam Ali Khan, the legendary Ghazal singer who gave us gems like Chupke Chupke Raat Din, Kal Chaudhvin Ki Raat Thi, Hungama Hai Kyon Barpa, Ye Dil Ye Pagal Dil and many more. Highly popular in Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bangladesh, as well as amongst South Asian diaspora in the USA, the UK and the Middle Eastern countries, his recent album Hasratein was nominated in the Best Ghazal Album category at GIMA 2014. Ustad Ghulam Ali Khan’s style and variations in singing Ghazals has been noted as unique, as he blended Hindustani classical music with ghazals, unlike any other Ghazal singer. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The Pakistani singer from the Patiala Gharana was recently in the Capital to celebrate 63 years of singing. You have completed six decades of singing. How was it learning from Bade Ghulam Ali Khan saab?You don’t train under someone like him, you just get their blessings and that is enough. I didn’t use to learn with him much, since I didn’t have the courage. I used to learn from his younger brothers and listen to Bade Ghulam Ali Khan saab. Had I not learnt from his younger brothers I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to even listen to him, so in a way they became a medium for me. Bade Ghulam Ali Khan saab would come to India and his brothers would remain in Lahore. So that is where I learnt my thaat, raag and sargams and everything else. I initially wanted to sing only classical but his brother introduced me to the idea of singing Ghazals. Classical has more vocals and less words and I thought people may enjoy listening to words more, and thus I went into singing Ghazals. By God’s grace, then I moulded classical into ghazals. Since for singing purely classical one has to have a stronger voice, introduced this soft hindustani classical way of singing ghazals.

I have received a lot of awards in my life, by God’s grace but that award is the most special for me, because it is named after my Ustad. In these 62 years, I have received many award from around the world, in America, UK and Europe. But the Bade Ghulam Ali Khan award in 2013 that I got in Hyderabad is closest to my heart. I will cherish it as long as I am alive. Having said that all the awards I have received have been very gratifying. I have been awarded the biggest honours in Pakistan as well as in many part of the world, but my biggest achievement and award are my listeners and those who love me. How does it feel like performing in India, especially Delhi?It feels exactly like I feel when I perform in Lahore. There is no difference. They have the same faces. Wahi chehre hain. Wohi aablay hain wohi jalan koi soz e dil mein kami nahi, jo laga ke aag gaye they tum woh lagi hui hai bujhi nahi. Our music is the same, we have the same raag. Asian music is the same for all of us. Now, one can wish that we sort our other differences as well. What do you think of the current status of Bollywood music?It has changed. Just as before women would wear full clothes, that is what has happened to music as well. It is the era of ‘Hello Hi’, there is less and less originality. And we should try and bring back original stuff.What are your opinion on fusion music?I don’t understand it. People may like it but I end up getting confused. Confusion is what it is. But alright, it is also experimentation and I am no one to say it is not good. It is melodious, it is good. But it isn’t really our culture. It is western. Countries should guard and remember their originality and what is their own. Let’s not forget ourselves in these experiments. read more

Nan province overjoyedNan province overjoyed upon receiving Royal commendation for its ASEAN Clean Tourist City AwardThe people of Nan, a small multi-cultural province located on the banks of the Nan River in North Thailand, are overjoyed to have received commendation from His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun to mark the awarding of Nan as the No.1 ASEAN Clean Tourist City.According to the 3 Miti news broadcast on 12 August, 2018, “Nan province has been selected to be the No.1 ASEAN Clean Tourist City Standard 2018-2020 at the ASEAN Tourism Forum 2018 on 26 January. This is the result of the strong cooperation between the provincial authorities and local people to maintain the cleanliness of their homes and streets, separate waste, work and volunteer together harmoniously and love their city. They are all proud to be the people of Nan. As a result, Nan is one of the most attractive cities to visit and sets a good example for other provinces.”His Majesty the King recognised this achievement and complimented the people of Nan, and all the provincial administrative officials. His Majesty called on them to continue their good work for the benefit of the people of Thailand as a whole.Mr. Paisan Vimonrat, Governor of Nan province, said he could not contain his joy and happiness upon being graciously honoured thus by His Majesty. He pledged to take the Royal instructions into practice and implement all the necessary policies in cooperation with both the public and private sectors to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness, health and hygiene.Mr. Paisan added: “We will make a conscious effort not to litter or consume anything that is hard to decompose; such as, plastic bags and foam containers. We will also start campaigns to reduce usage of non-biodegradable packaging and containers. All the people of Nan will join this effort. We hope to set a good example for tourists to see the beautiful culture of Nan and to spread the word so that other provinces can follow suit and make our beloved kingdom clean and green, in line with His Majesty’s Royal instructions.H.E. Mr. Weerasak Kowsurat, Minister of Tourism and Sports, also complimented the people and administrative officials of Nan Province.He said that “Nan, Yasothon and Trang provinces were nominated from Thailand for the ASEAN Clean City Award. I have personally enjoyed cycling in Nan. It was a pleasure to see no litter anywhere. Clearly, it indicates a strong and committed local community.”A quiet and tranquil province, Nan is nestled in a verdant valley in northern Thailand along the Nan River and border with Lao PDR. Nan comprises of many diverse groups such as the local Thai Yuan, Thai Lue, Thai Puan, Thai Khoen, and Thai Yai. This makes it rich in languages and culture.Nan’s history, development, and architecture were greatly influenced by various neighbouring kingdoms, in particular Sukhothai, which played important political and religious roles in shaping the development of Nan. Over the centuries however, Nan alternated between being an independent principality under the control of Lan Na, Sukhothai, Burma and Siam, respectively.Much of Nan is devoted to agriculture, particularly rice and fruit cultivation. It also boasts six national parks, including the stunning Doi Phukha National Park. This makes it an ideal destination for trekking, ecotourism and adventure travel.The provincial capital has a relaxed charm, some impressive temples, and a good museum. There is also a number of quality restaurants and bars along the town’s riverfront.Nan is one of the 55 second-tier tourist provinces to be promoted under the TAT’s latest campaign “Amazing Thailand Go Local”, a landmark project to promote the kingdom’s emerging generation of secondary destinations, better balance the distribution of tourist arrivals between urban and rural areas, even out the seasonality factor between the months of travel, and encourage more travel during weekdays to reduce pressure on the weekend.In 2017, visitor arrivals to Nan totalled 804,609, an increase of 5.05% over 2015, generating tourism revenue of 2.19 billion baht.
