As super typhoon Haiyan hits Philippines UN and partners prepare to provide

08 Nov 2013: Philippines, Vietnam – Tropical Cyclone HAIYAN “We are working closely in support of Government and local authorities to assess the life-saving needs of the people affected by this typhoon,” said Julie Hall, acting Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in the Philippines.The super typhoon, known locally as Yolanda, has ripped roofs off housing, uprooted trees and affected businesses, but the full extent of the damage will not be known until the storm has passed. According to media reports, it is one of the strongest storms ever recorded, with sustained winds of 295 kilometres per hour (kph), placing it above the 252 kph threshold for a Category 5 hurricane, the highest category on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. Three people have reportedly died, and seven others have been injured. Haiyan is expected to travel over eastern, central and western Visayas, Bicol and Southern Tagalog, which have a combined population of 29.4 million people. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) described the typhoon as “violent” but said it is expected to weaken slightly on a trajectory towards Viet Nam. Click on map to download PDF version (846.38 KB) The Government has taken preventative steps to save lives by moving people from coastal and low-lying areas known to be prone to flash flooding and landslides. The UN Humanitarian Country Team and partners have complemented these efforts by pre-positioning stocks to respond to life-saving needs of affected people. “The Humanitarian Country Team and partners are fully prepared to support and assist the Government in response to this latest typhoon,” said Ms. Hall. “We will continue to support their efforts as we wait to see exactly the extent of the damage caused by Typhoon Haiyan.”The World Food Programme (WFP) estimates that 2.5 million people will require immediate assistance in the aftermath of the typhoon, and said it would participate in the Government-led assessment.Haiyan is the third major crisis to hit the Philippines in just two months. In October, the Bohol earthquake affected more than 3 million people, triggering landslides engulfing entire homes, ripping apart bridges and tearing down centuries-old churches. Seven cities in three different provinces were initially affected. In September, tens of thousands were forcibly displaced by armed clashes in Zamboanga City in the southern part of the country. read more

Ambulances wait nine hours outside AE amid epidemic of delays

first_imgSoaring numbers of sick patients are being forced to wait in ambulances outside Accident & Emergency departments amid a deadly “epidemic” of delays, health officials have warned.A Telegraph investigation reveals record waits in casualty units, with patients spending up to nine hours in parked ambulances or with paramedics in hospital corridors before being seen by a doctor or nurse.Emails seen by this newspaper reveal that orders have been given to abandon patients in hospitals after 30 minutes, so that paramedics can return to their duties. Last night one of Britain’s most senior A&E doctors warned that hospitals had reached a state of “gridlock” with safety at risk and patients “crammed in like sardines”.Official guidelines state that handovers from ambulances to hospitals should take no longer than 15 minutes.

The documents reveal increasingly tense exchanges between senior managers in the health service, as A&E and ambulance response times deteriorated.One letter from Anthony Marsh, chief executive of West Midlands Ambulance Service, told the then chief executive of Worcestershire Royal Hospital: “Our managers in Worcestershire are having to stop doing their jobs and go to the hospital to care for your patients, in your corridors, in our hospital.”  The letter, sent in March last year, was followed by a warning the next month that the situation had become “totally unacceptable”.NHS targets say 75 per cent of 999 calls classed as potentially life-threatening calls should receive a response within eight minutes.But in the last two years, national performance has plummeted. In the first eight months of this year, one in three urgent calls did not receive a response within in the NHS eight minute target, with more than 1.1 million cases classed as “life-threatening” forced to wait longer.In the last year, the ambulance service has had an 11 per cent rise in calls, while visits to A&E have risen by more than six per cent.An NHS England spokesman said: “These figures demonstrate the increasing rise in demand for both ambulance and A&E services over recent years.  Although there are occasions when it is necessary and best for the patient that their handover is delayed while they are, of course, still receiving care from skilled ambulance staff, this has to be reduced wherever possible.” Number of patients waiting at least 30 minutes for handover2013/14 239,7722014/15 319,8562015/16 393,446 The message, sent in March, was met with anger from hospital bosses, who said A&E performance was “on a knife edge” and that abandoning patients would put them in too great danger.In another email, the head of South Central Ambulance Service – which covers Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire – tells a local hospital chief executive that delays at her hospital “exceed acceptable levels”.The warning to the chief executive of Portsmouth Hospital trust, sent the same month, describes “grave concern” about the consequences for those in need of a 999 response.  The disclosures from the country’s 10 ambulance trusts reveal record delays at hospitals across the country.

VIP paedophile ring fantasist Carl Beech granted almost £180000 in legal aid

The MOJ admitted that the figures could continue to rise. “As these matters have only very recently concluded, the billing process has not yet completed,” a spokesman for the government department said. “Claims for payment are made in arrears once a trial has been finalised.”Beech’s allegations also resulted in raids on the homes of Field Marshal Lord Bramall, the widow of Lord Brittan, and the former Conservative MP Harvey Proctor.  He also wielded allegations against former Prime Minister, Sir Edward Heath, the former home secretary Leon Brittan, the ex-MI5 chief Sir Michael Hanley, the late Labour MP Lord Janner, as well as the former Tory MP Harvey Proctor, among others. All of his claims were later accepted as completely false. The VIP paedophile ring fantasist has received almost £200,000 in legal aid, new figures reveal, as officials admit that the total sum could continue to rise. Beech, 51, was found guilty last month of 12 charges of perverting the course of justice and one of fraud at Newcastle Crown Court last month. He was jailed for 18 years and has since lodged an appeal against his conviction and sentence. The serial liar who fabricated “cruel and callous” lies of an establishment paedophile ring as well as a string of lurid claims that high-ranking officials tortured, abused and murdered children, prompted a £2.5million Metropolitan Police inquiry. However, it can now be reported that the fantasist has been granted almost £180,000 in legal aid. Figures released under the Freedom of Information Act revealed the amount of money which Beech was granted in order to clear his name.The Ministry of Justice (MOJ) figures, obtained by the Sunday Sun, the regional Sunday paper on sale in north-east England, reveal that the former NHS manager was granted £178,479 for barrister fees during his Newcastle Crown Court trial, as well as over £1,400 in legal aid solely for legal representation at a police station.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Beech was sentenced to 15 years in jail for perverting the course of justice and a further 18 months for fraud after he claimed compensation for being an alleged victim of a crime. He was given an additional 18 months after pleading guilty at an earlier court hearing to paedophile charges that included making indecent photographs of children and a charge of voyeurism.The Met claims to have spent £2.5million investigating Beech’s allegations before the case collapsed in 2016. The force opened its investigation into the claims, known as Operation Midland, in 2014 and declared that Beech’s claims of murder, rape and torture by public figures were “credible and true”.  Beech was formerly known as ‘Nick’ – an alias given to him to protect his identity while his claims were investigated. That sum also included over £470 in solicitor’s fees for a police interview where Beech – who is a “committed and manipulative paedophile” – blamed his own son for downloading indecent images. read more

HP webOS Tablets Detailed Possibly

first_imgEnjoy your brief tablet vacation while it lasts. It’s a nice, brief respite from the flurry that produced 80+ tablets at ces the other week, and will continue to manifest itself in offerings from a number of manufacturers both large and small. It seems safe to assume that we can expect new tablets from companies like Apple and HP in the near future.HP’s entry is expected to surface on February 9th, during an already-announced press conference. The company is likely to show off some of the fruits of its Palm acquisition via a number of new pieces of hardware for the “Something big, Something small, Something beyond” event. The above tablet is expected to be in the mix. It’s apparently a rendering of the Topaz device, courtesy of an Engadget “tipster.”The tablet completely lacks buttons on its face and features a front facing camera, a micro-USB port, and three built-in speakers, according to the site.last_img read more

Two Legged Robots Race in Japan

first_imgWell, this is encouraging. Just as we were all coming to grips with domination at the hands of Watson and his fellow know-it-all robot overlords, footage like this gets out. This is the first bipedal robot marathon, and in terms of future human enslavement, the results are pretty encouraging. The robots really sort of shuffle along and fall over–though they can right themselves for the record, so those planning on tipping over an invading robot hoard might want to rethink their approach.The robots, which raced early today in Osaka, are also fairly tiny, with the largest coming in at 16 inches tall. The race itself is really an endurance contest, with the ‘bots walking around the 328 foot long course a full 422 times. Battery recharges and repairs are allowed during the raise. If they fall over, they’re required to right themselves without the help of a human-type person.The four compete robots were designed by either the Osaka Institute of Technology or a company called Vstone.last_img read more

Russian bans to hurt Greek producers

first_imgThe Russian government has banned all imports of meat, fish, milk and milk products and fruit and vegetables from the United States, the European Union, Australia, Canada and Norway, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev announced this week. Greece is expected to lose 180 million euros if Russia goes ahead with the announced one-year ban on food imports from the European Union but Athens was hopeful that a number of local products would be exempted from the embargo.“We are making a constant effort to ensure that we only suffer the smallest possible consequences, even none at all, if possible,” said Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos.According to the Greek daily Kathimerini, Russian diplomatic sources have given verbal assurances that many Greek products would be left off the list of imports that Russia will ban when it provides a final list in the days to come.Sources at the Greek Foreign Ministry believe that Moscow recognises Greece has attempted to dissuade the EU from taking tough action against Russia as the dispute over Ukraine intensifies. Athens also thinks that its decision to assist Russian tourists stranded after two travel agencies went into bankruptcy was appreciated by Russian authorities.“I do not want to discuss the process we are involved in,” said Venizelos. “As a European Union country, committed to its community obligations, we try to have the best relations with all countries and protect Greek agricultural production.”Russia is by far the biggest consumer of EU fruit and vegetables and a major global consumer of fish, meat and dairy products.In 2013 Greek exports to Russia were worth a total of 178 million euros. However, they have already suffered a dip this year. According to the Panhellenic Exporters Association, the value of Greek exports to Russia was down 23.9 per cent in the first quarter of this year compared to 2013, falling from 82.9 million euros to 63 million.If the embargo goes ahead it will have a significant effect on some areas of Greece, such as the peach-producing areas of Pella and Imathia. Around half of the fruit produced in these areas is exported to Russia.Source: ekathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Pete Kaiser wins third consecutive Kuskokwim 300

first_imgPete Kaiser won his third consecutive Kuskokwim 300 Sunday morning. (Photo: Katie Basile / KYUK)His was the team to beat and no-one could. Sunday morning for the third year in a row, Pete Kaiser won the 2017 Kuskokwim 300 Sled Dog Race, crossing the finish line in Bethel at 10:37 a.m. to loud cheers from his hometown crowd. His leader Palmer brought home the nine-dog team, 28 minutes faster than last year.Listen nowBrent Sass, last year’s runner up, followed 46 minutes later at 11:23 a.m.Kaiser left the final upriver checkpoint of Tuluksak with a 20-minute edge over Sass, pulling the snowhook from the river ice at 5:22 a.m. Sunday morning for the final run to Bethel. At the finish line Sunday morning, Kaiser said the dog team signaled early in the run that they could make it home for the prize.“When we left Tuluksak, they looked really good. We were on step within a few miles, and I could feel the power in the handlebar,” Kasier said.  “I knew at that point that if we could keep that going, he’d [Sass] have a hard time time catching us. As far as knowing that you’re going to win, not until you get here. But he’s a heck of a competitor, I knew he’d be coming after us.”Brent Sass placed second for the second year in a row in the Kuskokwim 300.(Photo: Katie Basile / KYUK)A 29-year-old member of the next generation of mushers, Kaiser had eight K300 finishes to his name coming into the race and an experienced core team who has raced the past three years. He also brought several “up and coming” two-year-olds into his race team. Kaiser won the $25,000 top prize from the $150,000 purse.In a frigid race with temperatures reaching minus 40, Kaiser had to contend with a set of challenges from the cold.“You put a couple extra layers on, the dogs gets coats, a little extra care makes every task a little more difficult,” Kaiser said. “It was nice to have a cold race with snow. It actually feels like winter here.”36-year-old Sass, a seasoned Yukon Quest musher based in the interior community of Eureka, was never far behind from Kalskag onward. With his six discretionary hours of rest over the 300-mile trail, Kaiser banked his rest earlier than his closest competitor, taking four hours in Kalskag on the outbound trail and an hour each in Aniak and on the way back through Kalskag. Sass took his first three hours in outbound Kalskag and completed the Aniak and Whitefish Lake loop in one big march before taking the next three again in Kalskag. While Sass pushed through Aniak during the day Saturday, Kaiser’s team was able to tack on the advantage he needed to secure the victory.Aniak musher Richie Diehl earned his highest-ever place in the K300, coming into the Bethel finish in third place. (Photo: Katie Basile / KYUK)Kaiser’s team built a small lead by running 24-minutes faster than Sass into Aniak and 16 minutes faster into Kalskag. But with the fresh inbound Kalskag rest in his team, Sass began to slash into Kaiser’s buffer, gaining 14 minutes on the trail into Tuluksak for the final rest. That set up a classic final sprint on the 50 miles from Tuluksak to Bethel. The mushers’ rest schedules match last year, when Sass chased Kaiser but was unable to overtake him in the final stretch. Richie Diehl placed third in the K300, his best career finish.In 2015, Kaiser became the first local musher in nearly three decades to win the Kuskokwim 300. Now he matches Mitch Seavey for the second-most titles with three. Only Jeff King has more victories with nine.last_img read more

What To Expect For Donald Trumps Inauguration

first_img Share Mario Tama/Getty ImagesThe sun sets on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol building ahead of inauguration ceremonies for President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday.The peaceful transition of American power will be witnessed by the world once again Friday. Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. That has brought jubilation in conservative America. For them, Trump’s win is a sigh of relief, a repudiation of Barack Obama’s America and a pause on the liberalization of the world’s remaining superpower.But this day isn’t without controversy. There are hard feelings — and fear — in the other America. That America sees Trump’s win as unfair and unjust — given Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by almost 3 million votes, given Russian meddling in the election intended to boost Trump, and given the unprecedented way Trump presented himself during the campaign. He went after all comers. No one was beyond reproach or the basest insult.A polarized country, which in many ways can be separated by how one views Trump, sets the backdrop for the incoming president’s inaugural speech. And Trump has a powerful bully pulpit to work from. While he is coming into office with the lowest favorability ratings of any president since polling began, he also has the biggest Republican majority in the House in a century and a majority in the Senate. Trump has pledged to keep his inaugural speech short, but what he says could have far-reaching consequences. Those words may signal a critical course for how he intends to reach out across the American divide — and how he intends to govern.The speech, while central, is one part of a full day of events.Here’s what to expect throughout the day:Events begin with a service at 8:30 a.m. ET. at Saint John’s Church, across from the White House.Trump’s and Pence’s families then attend a tea at the White House with the outgoing president and Michelle Obama, before heading to the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.The swearing-in ceremony is expected to begin around 11 a.m. ET, with the inaugural address to follow. Trump will be sworn in with Lincoln’s Bible, the same used for Obama’s ceremonies. He will also use his personal Bible.The families of the new president and vice president head to a congressional luncheon at the Capitol. What’s on the menu? Steak, ice cream, lobster and chocolate souffle, USA Today reports.Meanwhile, the Obamas fly to Joint Base Andrews, where Obama will say farewell to his staff before leaving for Palm Springs, Calif.The inaugural parade begins at 3 p.m. More than 8,000 people will be led by Trump and Pence from the Capitol to the White House, according to Trump’s Presidential Inaugural Committee, which has a full list of participants, including members of the military, veterans groups, school bands and Boy Scouts of America.In the evening, President Trump, first lady Melania Trump, Vice President Pence and second lady Karen Pence will attend the Liberty and Freedom Ball at the Washington Convention Center.Copyright 2017 NPR.
