BERLIN — The German government says greenhouse gas emissions in Europe’s biggest economy fell 4.2% in 2018, the first major decrease in four years.Estimates published Tuesday by the Environment Ministry show Germany released the equivalent of 868.7 million metric tons of carbon dioxide last year, 38 million less than 2017.Environment Minister Svenja Schulze said Germany benefited from 2018’s warm and sunny weather, which increased production of renewable energy and reduced the need for heating fuel.Germany’s emissions last year were about 30.6 per cent lower than in 1990. The country aims to reduce emissions by at least 55 per cent from that baseline year by 2030 as part of efforts to curb climate change.Cabinet is debating a bill that could set legally binding emissions goals for each sector of the economy.The Associated Press
Army Commander Lieutenant General Daya Ratnayake has ordered a Brigadier and three Lieutenant Colonels to be relieved of their duties over the Weliweriya incident.The army said that the three top officers have been removed in order to facilitate the investigations underway into the role of the army in the clashes that took place in Weliweriya during a protest over clean water. The Commander of the Army, after a thorough study on the facts submitted by the Court of Inquiry, has referred the Inquiry Report to the Director Legal, Brigadier Ranjith Rajapathirana who is also the Chief Prosecutor of the Army. Once the Court of Inquiry report has been examined, a Summary of Evidence will be ordered against any person if there is sufficient evidence as to violation of military law with the view to Court Martial him. The Police investigations on the 3 deaths occurred during the incident are handled by Crime Detection Bureau (CDB) and the Magistrate Court Gampaha is conducting the magistratial inquiry. The Army says it will assist the Police and Court in every possible way and will take further action as per the final outcome of the ongoing judicial process.

The army media unit said that consequent to the Weliweriya incident, the Commander of the Army Lieutenant General Daya Ratnayake had appointed a 5 man Court of Inquiry. The Court of Inquiry headed by Major General Jagath Dias submitted its report to the Commander of the Army on 21.08.2013.
Speaking to reporters after the ICC Preparatory Commission wrapped up its final session, Philippe Kirsch of Canada, who was a key negotiator during the talks that produced the ICC’s Rome Statute, responded to questions about United States-backed proposals being circulated in the Security Council aimed at precluding the prosecution of UN peacekeepers.While noting that the US “has expressed some concern about political prosecutions,” Ambassador Kirsch stressed that under the ICC’s Statute, responsibility for prosecution lies mainly with the countries concerned, and the Court would only have jurisdiction if they were unable or unwilling to act.In the United States, “a great democracy with a judicial system that functions perfectly well, it is extremely difficult to imagine that if American peacekeepers were to commit crimes of that nature – we’re not talking about shoplifting here, we’re talking about crimes against humanity, genocide, very serious war crimes – that the American system would not deal with it,” he said.The Statute, he added, was designed to make the Court a non-political – and exclusively judicial – body, and as such “is full of safeguards to protect the legal rights of the accused, of the States concerned and of the victims.”The Security Council’s jurisdiction, he pointed out, “is based on the existence of a threat to peace and security, and we have all been looking in vain as to what that threat to peace and security could be – it certainly is not caused by the International Criminal Court.”While the final outcome of the Council’s deliberations could be perfectly consistent with the Statute, if it were not, “then we would be in a situation where the Security Council is rewriting treaties among States that have been perfectly, legitimately concluded, that have gathered immense support and again, are completely unrelated to international peace and security,” he warned. In broad terms, this could harm the equality of all before the law. Asked whether the ICC would be compromised by such an action, he said, “the operation of the Court is highly unlikely to be directly affected – frankly I think the credibility of the Security Council is much more affected by what is happening now.”
As revelers say ‘hello’ to 2019 with great festivities, the world welcomes its newest residents. In a press release issued on the first day of the year, UNICEF said that globally, over 395,000 children are expected to be born on 1 January. Over half of these births are estimated to take place in eight countries which include India, China, Nigeria, Indonesia, the United States and the Democratic Republic of Congo.As the clock strikes midnight, Sydney, Australia will greet an estimated 168 babies, followed by 310 in Tokyo, 605 in Beijing, 166 in Madrid, and finally, 317 in New York. The first babies were born in Fiji in the Pacific, and the US will most likely deliver its last.‘Make a resolution to fulfill every right of every child’UNICEF is taking the opportunity to call on nations to meet every newborn’s right to health and survival. The agency’s Deputy Executive Director, Charlotte Petri Gornitzka, asked the world to join UNICEF in “making a resolution to fulfill every right of every child, starting with the right to survive”. As families take into their arms countless Alexanders and Ayeshas, Zixuans and Zainabs, in several countries many babies will not even be named as they won’t make it past their first day, the agency warned. According to UNICEF, in 2017, about one million babies died the day they were born, and 2.5 million in just their first month of life.Most died from preventable causes such as premature birth, complications during delivery, and infections like pneumonia, in what the agency called ‘a violation of their basic right to survival’. “We can save millions of babies if we invest in training and equipping local health workers so that every newborn is born into a safe pair of hands”, Ms. Gornitza added.2019 also marks the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Under the convention, governments committed to take measures to save every child by providing good quality health care. Over the past three decades, the world has seen remarkable progress in child survival, cutting the number of children worldwide who die before their fifth birthday by more than half. But there has been slower progress for newborns. Babies dying in the first month account for 47 per cent of all deaths among children under five.

Plans to convert the M4 hard shoulder into a fourth lane of traffic have been given the go-ahead by the Government.The proposals would see a 32-mile stretch of the highway widened from three to four lanes from Hayes, west London, to Theale, Berkshire.This stretch of road, from junction three to 12, would also be subject to variable speed limits under the scheme.Transport Secretary Chris Grayling, who granted planning permission for the scheme, said there is a “critical need to improve the existing national road network”. In his letter of approval, he said the plans will “increase capacity, improve traffic flow and reduce journey times, thereby supporting economic development”.Environmental and transport groups are outraged at the decision and claim having no hard shoulder will be a hazard for motorists.Bridget Fox, sustainable transport campaigner, said: “This is bad news for both motorists and local residents.”Motorists and breakdown operatives will be exposed to greater risk with the loss of the hard shoulder.”This is just expanding motorways on the cheap.”She added: “We need investment in alternative options, including better rail, to give people choice in their journeys.”Jenny Bates, of Friends of the Earth, said: “Widening the M4 will lead to more traffic, more climate changing emissions and increase air pollution levels that already break legal health limits.”Motorway widening is not the solution to our congested roads as more traffic just makes it worse, it’s time to send UK transport in a new direction to protect our planet and our health.”
Armed police were scrambled to an east London mosque on Thursday night after a “masked” gunman entered the building during Ramadan prayers before discharging a firearm outside.The incident at the Seven Kings Mosque in Ilford comes two months after the Christchurch massacre and raised fears of a copycat attack in the capital.Worshippers were part-way through evening prayers late on Thursday when the sound of a gunshot rang out.A man, said to have had his face covered, was reported to have entered the mosque on High Road, but was made to leave before firing the gun.Scotland Yard said early investigations suggested that a “blank firing handgun” had been discharged.No injuries or damage to the building were reported and detectives were not treating the incident as terrorism-related, the force said. I am aware of the reports of a man with a firearm at Seven Kings Mosque during prayers tonight and am relieved that no one appears to have been hurt or injured. Thank you to @MPSRedbridge for a swift response. I will in touch with Police in the morning re: mosque security.— Wes Streeting MP (@wesstreeting) May 9, 2019 Worshipper Ibraheem Hussain, 19, an apprentice data analyst at one of the Big Four city firms, said the incident left him concerned over the safety of worshippers during Ramadan.”The main thing that was in my mind was that (due to the layout of the mosque) it could have gone very wrong,” he said.”(Christchurch) comes to mind, it’s crazy to think this would happen in London, especially after everything that has happened.” Abdul Ahad wrote on Facebook: “During taraweeh prayers this evening there was an incident involving a firearm at Seven Kings masjid (mosque). A “blank firing handgun” is believed to have been shot during an incident outside Seven Kings MosqueCredit:London News Pictures Scotland Yard said the investigation was being led by detectives from the East Area Command Unit, although the Trident gang squad had been notified.”Police were called at 10.45pm on Thursday, 9 May to reports that a man, believed to be in possession of a firearm, had entered a mosque on High Road in Seven Kings,” the force said.”The man was ushered outside of the building by those inside. A gunshot was then heard.”Officers, including firearms officers, attended. There were no reported injuries or damage to the building.”At this early stage, ballistic evidence recovered from the scene suggests that the weapon was a blank firing handgun. Mr Hussain described hearing the gunshot around half an hour after prayers began.He told the Press Association: “There’s three sections of the mosque and at taraweeh (evening prayers) during this time of Ramadan the mosque is packed out.”We were upstairs in the classrooms and about 30 minutes into the night prayer a large noise went off. I just continued my prayer, it sounded like a firework or maybe something heavy had been dropped, so no-one really thought anything of it.”After we finished … someone said it was a gunshot, someone had come into the mosque and he had a firearm on him. The managers had seen him, he was masked and acting suspicious and the firearm was let off.”Several social media users also said the alleged armed man had his face covered. Police remain on High Road in Seven Kings following a firearm discharge. At this early stage, it is thought that the weapon was a blank firing handgun. There were no injuries or damage caused. The incident is not being treated as terrorism-related.— Metropolitan Police (@metpoliceuk) May 9, 2019 The incident comes amid heightened concerns over security at places of worship around the world. A mass shooting at a mosque in New Zealand in March left 50 people dead, while a woman was killed when a gunman opened fire at a synagogue in California in April.Last month nearly 260 people died in the Easter Sunday attacks in Sri Lanka, which included a suicide bombing on a church. “Officers will continue to work closely with representatives from the mosque and are providing reassurance to the local community.”Anyone with information is asked to contact Borough officers via 101 quoting reference 8585/9May.

Alhamdulillah no one injured or hurt, but one shot was fired and unfortunately he ran away.”Following the incident the mosque’s imam urged people not to speculate over the gunman’s motives.”There was a firearm incident outside Seven Kings Mosque tonight during Ramadan night prayers,” Mufti Suhail said.”The suspect ran from the scene when stopped by brothers standing guard at the mosque.”A shot was fired which fortunately did not hit anyone.”Ilford North MP Wes Streeting said he would be contacting the police about the incident.

‘I’ve been asked many times how I kept calm, but I don’t think anything could prepare you for that’ Ireland U17 manager Colin O’Brien looks ahead to this summer’s European Championships and reflects on last year’s penalty controversy against Holland. 35,669 Views https://the42.ie/4503776 O’Brien led Ireland to the quarter-finals of the U17 Euros in 2017 and again in 2018. Source: Andrew Fosker/INPHO“I do, I really do believe that,” O’Brien says when asked if other countries underestimate teams from this country. “Maybe not by some coaches, but some players might have a perception in certain countries about Irish football. Some of the opposition players we come across from other countries are super, super confident young players.There’s nothing wrong with confidence, but you’ve got to back that up. I think sometimes countries might underestimate us a little bit. We will always make sure we’re competitive.”He and his backroom team have put last year’s shootout exit behind them, he says, and are filled with fresh motivation, excitement and trepidation about this year’s Euros, which will be played in Dublin, Longford and Waterford from 3-19 May.Exciting young talents like Real Betis centre-back Anselmo Garcia MacNulty, Norwich duo Josh Giurgi and Andrew Omobamidele, Southampton’s Seamas Keogh and Manchester City goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu are just a number of names to keep tabs on.It all comes back to the approach, the preparation and the mentality you promote, O’Brien says. Leading Ireland’s U17s to three consecutive European Championships, the last two of which saw the Boys in Green passage to the quarter-finals, shows there is serious potential.But it’s not just about results, he maintains. With a team of eager young teenagers just at the beginning of what they each hope will be long and successful careers in football, creating an environment with the right values to help them take the next step will be much more beneficial and worthwhile than medals and trophies in the short-term. This year’s European Championships are being held in Dublin, Longford and Waterford. Source: Bryan Keane/INPHOThat bizarre Dutch shootout defeat seemed to have crystallised O’Brien’s philosophy in one instance. Just when you’d expect a team to be lashing out against an injustice, complaining and criticising the decisions of referees, his men took the setback in their stride — knowing they had lost a battle, but the war was still waging on.“I don’t think anything could prepare you for that, to be quite honest. I’ve been asked so many times how I stayed calm, but I really don’t know what would prepare you for it.I think it was just more about the technicality of the rule being enforced [with goalkeeper Corcoran being sent off]. There was just a sense, I felt, that our players still deserved an enormous amount of credit for what they did in that tournament.“I think you’re going to see a lot of these boys progress in a major way in the next few years, and what I also said at the time was that — hopefully — younger boys coming through aged 12 or 13 will have seen how we reacted, and it might inspire them.“They will have seen that Irish teams can get to tournaments and compete at a high level. Not only that, but competing while conducting themselves in a professional manner.”Subscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: Wednesday 20 Feb 2019, 7:55 PM O’Brien enjoyed a successful playing career with Cork City before moving into management.

They’re a super bunch of lads.“We limited this talented Dutch team to two goal-scoring opportunities. We went to penalties and it’s very unfortunate what happened here tonight.

They’ve had a great season with us, gone through two qualifying rounds unbeaten, topped their group. They’ve ran a really talented Dutch team right to their limits tonight.“It’s a tough way to go out,” he sighed. “But, sure look, we’ll take a lot out of it. They’ve all big careers ahead of them in the game. They’ve been super, what a tournament, what an experience for them. They’ve done the country proud tonight.”O’Brien’s demeanour — just when you would expect a manager to be seething, ranting, raving, decrying an injustice against his side, blaming referees and officials — struck a cord with a lot of people.Despite his side exiting the competition in the most cruel fashion, many of his teenaged players in tears on the field, O’Brien and his troops conducted themselves in an incredibly measured manner.“Classy response,” said one commenter on Twitter. “That manager is a class act,” added another. “What a leader. Outstanding stuff, that’s how you conduct yourself after that shambles.”It’s nine months on from last May’s penalty controversy, and the 43-year-old is now gearing up to lead a new Ireland U17 side into this year’s European Championships — the third championships in a row he has led his side to.Watch the controversial conclusion to the penalty shoot-out between Ireland and the Netherlands at the Euro U17 Championships. #RTESoccer pic.twitter.com/Mm8jln24Pr— RTÉ Soccer (@RTEsoccer) May 15, 2018 Nobody had ever seen a goalkeeper sent off in the middle of a shootout, with the incident sparking a whole host of controversy and comment as to why and how the referee had decided to send off the 16-year-old goalkeeper in a European Championships penalty shootout.Most onlookers were dismayed, upset, full of rage and anger. Ireland manager Martin O’Neill even entered the field to have a word with the Uefa officials to demand an answer.But the calmest man to be found was the one who had every justifiable reason to be most upset. Ireland U17 boss O’Brien kept his nerve when interviewed afterwards, did not take the opportunity to criticise anybody, and simply heaped praise on the shoulders of his young side who had come so far and performed so well. This year is unique, however, with the competition being held in Ireland — meaning his troops will get the opportunity to play in front of a home crowd at a European finals. It’s something which very few footballers at any level get the chance to do, and O’Brien is relishing it.“It’s really exciting,” he says speaking to The42 as the countdown to May continues. “You’re going to have the best U17 players from around Europe all on our doorstep.“It’s very special and especially for this age group. They’ve known about this for the last two years. They’ve known ever since they played U15s that when they get to U17s Ireland would be chosen to automatically qualify as hosts.They know that they still have to prepare properly, not trying to get caught up too much in the occasion of it. They’ll be nervous, but they’ll be excited too. Irish crowds always get behind the team and I’d be encouraging everyone to get out and support us in May.”O’Brien led Ireland to the quarter-finals in 2017 and to the same stage a year ago, when his side suffered that heartbreaking exit at the hands of the Netherlands on spot-kicks.The Irish manager says he has been asked numerous times about the level-headed reaction of his backroom team and players following what many deemed an injustice, but maintains that it all comes back to the principles and values which his staff try to promote. Ireland will host the U17 European Championships in May. Source: Ryan Byrne/INPHOAt underage level, it’s not all about winning gold medals, he says. It’s more about instilling the right mentality into players who are still in their teens, showing them the right ways to behave and train and work hard. All to try and prepare them for the next stage of their careers — as senior, adult professional footballers. “A lot of the players have to understand that there’s going to be a lot that doesn’t go their way in their career,” O’Brien says, explaining that dealing with disappointment is simply part-and-parcel of sport. “It mightn’t be happening right now, but [setbacks] will happen.Whether it’s issues with a club, or issues with officials on the pitch, or issues with team-mates in their club. We’re big on values with them, we really are. I know a lot of people go on about Irish football and people have a lot of opinions, but it’s more than football that we work on with the players.“We want boys that represent themselves well, especially as they progress in their clubs. These lads, they’re smart lads, and we want to make sure they have good values and that they’ve taken something from their work with us. They won’t get everything, but hopefully they’ll have taken something that will stand to them in the long-term.”Ever since he became U17 manager three years ago in 2016, the ex-Cork City star has stressed just how much potential is within Irish football. Oftentimes other countries dismiss Irish teams, giving his players the motivation to cause upsets.

L’électricité nucléaire coûtera bientôt 10% plus chère Selon un nouveau rapport, le coût de production de l’électricité nucléaire devrait augmenter de près de 10% à cause des nombreux investissements qui doivent être faits pour la mise aux normes des centrales nucléaires. Le rapport de la Cour des comptes rendu hier sur les coûts de la filière nucléaire en France montre que les nombreux travaux à faire pour remettre aux normes les centrales nucléaires françaises vont amener à court ou moyen terme à une augmentation du coût de production de l’électricité nucléaire. Dans ce document, la Cour a en effet mis en évidence que l’investissement dans la maintenance devrait être doublé dans les 10 à 20 prochaines années pour prolonger la durée de vie des centrales et coller aux demandes d’améliorations des normes de sécurité faites par l’Autorité de sûreté nucléaire. À lire aussiLa fusion nucléaire pourrait bien devenir prochainement une réalitéDepuis l’accident de la centrale de Fukushima-Daiichi survenu en mars dernier au Japon, la sécurité des centrales nucléaires françaises a été sérieusement remise en question. Dès lors, le nucléaire ne pouvait plus valoir plus le même prix si le gouvernement devait améliorer la sécurité de ses centrales. Et effectivement, ce sont bien la maintenance et la sûreté qui vont saler la facture EDF. Celles-ci coûteront plus cher que le coût du démantèlement futur des centrales nucléaires (18,4 milliards d’euros) et celui de la gestion à long terme des déchets nucléaires (28,4 milliards d’euros). Toutefois, ces chiffrages ne sont pas définitifs.Néanmoins, la durée de vie des centrales a un rôle clef dans l’évolution de ce coût. Elle permettrait selon la Cour des Comptes “d’amortir les investissements sur un plus grand nombre d’années” et de “repousser dans le temps les dépenses de démantèlement et le besoin d’investissement dans de nouvelles installations de production”. Par ailleurs, la Cour a également mis en évidence dans son rapport, que la France n’aurait pas les moyens de renouveler son parc, nécessitant la construction de 11 EPR d’ici 2022. “Cela signifie qu’à travers l’absence de décision d’investissement, une décision implicite a été prise qui engage déjà la France : soit à faire durer ses centrales au-delà de 40 ans, soit à faire évoluer significativement et rapidement le mix énergétique vers d’autres sources d’énergie, ce qui suppose des investissements complémentaires”, a conclu la Cour des comptes citée par Sciences et avenir.Le 1 février 2012 à 14:35 • Maxime Lambert
A car crashed into a power pole along Washougal River Road early Tuesday morning, leaving 1,056 customers without electricity.The single-car crash was reported at 3:46 a.m. at 800 S.E. Washougal River Road in Washougal. Power lines and a transformer fell into the road. Oil from the transformer spilled across the road, said East County Fire & Rescue Deputy Chief Dean Thornberry. One person was taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, Thornberry said. After nearly seven hours of cleanup, the road reopened around 11 a.m. The outage ended around 6:15 a.m. for all but one Clark Public Utilities’ customer, according to spokeswoman Erica Erland.

September 24 , 2018 Wonderful launches seedless lemon brand … The concept will roll out over the next six months, with around 10-15 Jack’s locations slated to be opened around the United Kingdom. The first of the flock opened its doors on Thursday in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, and Immingham, Lincolnshire. The stores to follow will include a mix of purpose-built locations, as well as those that will operate quite literally next door to already existing Tesco stores.Competing with Aldi and LidlTesco’s no-fuss approach is also a strategic move by the UK retailer to keep those cost prices down, in an effort to compete with discount stores such as Aldi and Lidl. Lewis reportedly has claimed Jack’s will beat the prices of Aldi or Lidl.As part of their range of products, Jack’s will have a Fresh Five fruit-and-veg offer that will be comparable to Aldi’s Super Six. The store will sell 2,600 products, with 1800 branded under the Jack’s label itself. Part of the features of the new stores will include wide aisles, self-ready products, and three checkout options for customers, designed to create an inviting and seamless experience, while keeping operating costs down.The Jack’s brand is headed up for the former Aldi operations director, Lawrence Harvey.Tesco’s commitment to great valueA core premise for the UK retailer over the past 100 years, Tesco’s initiatives have involved price-cutting and value driven offerings. Other initiatives that mirror this are Operations Checkout, a price-cut plan in an attempt to boost sales which was launched in 1977 by former Tesco UK chief executive Ian MacLaurin; Tesco Clubcard, introduced in 1995, where shoppers receive points based on the amount spent, as well as Tesco Mobile and Bank, a way for customers to manage their accounts, and spending.

In celebration of Tesco’s 100 years, the UK retailer has launched Jack’s, a discount brand with several locations dotted around the country, in honor of Tesco’s innovative founder, Jack Cohen. Think Jack’s Milk, Jack’s Cornflakes, Jack’s Baked Beans, Jack’s Bananas, all at radically low prices, that will promote food and drinks produce that are 80 percent grown-and-made in the United Kingdom.As part of a series of initiatives to pay tribute to Tesco’s centenary, Jack’s will reflect the values of its founder, who began what is now a major UK supermarket chain with a simple, no-frills approach to those people in need.In 1919, he sold armed forces surplus stock in Hackney, making food available to everyone, but particularly those who couldn’t afford the high street prices.
