Pregnant Students in Africa Need Your Support, Not Rejection

 Cache   

“Angela,” 20, walks with her son near her home after returning from school in Migori county, western Kenya. She is a Form 4 student at a girls-only school. Angela became pregnant when her trainee teacher offered to pay some of her primary school fees in return for sex. Her father tried to marry her off to suitors after she gave birth, but Angela’s mother fought against this and supported her return to school. She wants to go to college and study nursing.

In late 2018, Sierra Leone's First Lady, Fatima Bio, opened a national campaign "Hands Off Our Girls."   Her campaign made big promises to reduce child marriages and teenage pregnancies in the country, in part to tackle the spike in teenage pregnancies following widespread rape during the Ebola crisis. Reflecting on this campaign, President Julius Maada Bio stated: "We have wasted a lot of time in restricting the potentials of women and girls."

In light of this important acknowledgment, his government senselessly adheres to a policy that intentionally wastes the potential of many thousands of girls who are expelled from school each year because they are pregnant - which also effects the number of girls who stay in secondary school in the country.

In Sierra Leone, like in Tanzania and many other African countries, one of the most often cited excuses for not letting pregnant girls stay in school is that they will "corrupt" other girls into pregnancy. But isolating and excluding pregnant girls from school will not stop teen pregnancies because "immorality" is not the cause.

These punitive approaches, which in Tanzania and elsewhere have led to harassment and even arrest of pregnant girls, only serve to stigmatize and disempower girls, and to perpetuate gender discrimination. The fact is that many teenage girls are vulnerable to becoming pregnant because of factors such as poverty, violence, exploitation, and lack of knowledge about sexuality. Government officials might be quick to blame some of the most vulnerable girls, but authorities are incredibly slow when it comes to tackling these key factors through smart policies and programs.

The stories of hundreds of girls whom we have interviewed stand in sharp contrast to the dominant narrative by authorities and others in a position of power, such as teachers, education staff, or politicians who condemn them.

When we've asked girls - pregnant or not - what they think about their peers' pregnancies and drop-outs, most have told us that seeing other pregnant girls drop out of school is enough of a deterrent. Girls can often see that their peers have to deal with heavy stigma as a result of pregnancy. Their families reject or insult them. Most struggle to raise a child when they are children themselves.

In Tanzania, we interviewed Sawadee - she chose this pseudonym - who was in the third grade of secondary school when she got pregnant. Her neighbor - an adult man - followed her for a few years. He used to give her small gifts, which she felt she had to accept. At first, she refused to have sex with him, but her friends advised her to accept the money he was offering, as she would be better off. She got pregnant the first time they had sex, when she was only 16. Her parents kicked her out of their home, and she was expelled from school. For years, she dreamed of becoming a nurse - but getting back into education was nearly impossible: Sawadee and her daughter suffered hardship. She could only find very precarious jobs. "When I failed to get money, me and my baby didn't get a meal," she told us. Girls understand that pregnancy could mean the end of their hard-gained efforts to get a secondary or university education. Like Sawadee, they know pregnancy can destroy their ambitions.

But many girls also tell us about the challenges they face at school, and in their communities, which contribute to their vulnerability. Many girls we have spoken with became pregnant because they were raped, sexually exploited in exchange for food, money or grades or coerced into sex by adultsincluding their own teachers, and at a worryingly high rate, by boys their age.

But many also get pregnant following a sexual relationship they consented to with boys - often students or others they know in their communities. The lack of sexual education - or even how to protect themselves - plays a part in this.

Education ministries have a great tool available to act and respond in an empowering way. Age-appropriate comprehensive sexuality education can help students understand sexuality and reproduction and how to protect themselves from pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections. But importantly, this education can help them recognize that they can use their right of consent to decide when to have sexual relationships, and understand that sexual exploitation and abuse are crimes and that no one should subject them to sexual violence. Yet, many African governments refuse to provide comprehensive sexuality education in schools. Where it is provided it is often substandard. Most provide a half-baked and often unscientific version that focuses on the biology of reproduction or a stigmatized approach to adolescent sexuality that does little to protect students.

African governments have a legal obligation to promote girls' rights to education without discrimination. Sierra Leone should immediately lift the ban and not just allow all girls access to education, but support them fully to return to school. The African Union should call on Sierra Leone, Tanzania and all African governments to safeguard all girls' potential, and stop the exclusion of pregnant girls from schools.

Overview

This Weekly Bulletin focuses on public health emergencies occurring in the WHO African Region. The WHO Health Emergencies Programme is currently monitoring 68 events in the region. This week’s main articles cover key new and ongoing events, including:

  • Measles in Lesotho

  • Hepatitis E in Namibia

  • Humanitarian crisis in Mali

  • Ebola virus disease in Democratic Republic of the Congo.

For each of these events, a brief description, followed by public health measures implemented and an interpretation of the situation is provided.

A table is provided at the end of the bulletin with information on all new and ongoing public health events currently being monitored in the region, as well as recent events that have largely been controlled and thus closed.

Major issues and challenges include:

  • The hepatitis E outbreak first identified in Namibia in December 2017 continues, despite response efforts made to date to halt ongoing transmission of the virus. The major drivers of the outbreak remain the same, limited access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor personal and food safety practices. Novel initiatives are therefore needed to address the outbreak such as finalising the review of the relevance and feasibility of a vaccination intervention. There is also a need to sustain conventional control activities, particularly in the informal settlements, and strengthen surveillance and coordination mechanisms in all the affected areas.

  • The humanitarian situation in Mali remains complex and volatile. The number of IDPs has continued to rise as a result of the deteriorating security context and the impact of floods experienced earlier in the year. As well as supporting the immediate needs of the population, the resilience of the health system to epidemics and public health emergencies needs to be reinforced.
    Furthermore, local and international authorities and partners must continue to advocate for peace in the region in order to relieve the suffering of this vulnerable population.


          

World: A WHO Report of the Eliminate Yellow Fever Epidemics (EYE) Strategy Annual Partners’ Meeting 2018, Dakar, Senegal 11–13 September 2018

Executive summary

The comprehensive global strategy to Eliminate Yellow Fever Epidemics (EYE) was developed by WHO, UNICEF, Gavi the vaccine alliance, and more than fifty partners to build a global coalition that will tackle the increased risk of yellow fever (YF) epidemics in a coordinated manner by 2026.

The annual EYE Strategy Partners Meeting was held on the 11–13 September in Dakar, Senegal, and hosted by UNICEF West and Central Africa Regional Office (WCARO). More than 70 participants, including partners, country representatives, vaccine manufacturers, donors, and experts came together to discuss the EYE Strategy achievements to date, and the main challenges that are anticipated going forward.

The main objectives of the meeting were:

• To review and discuss the EYE Strategy future plans and the way forward,

• To strengthen partners’, particularly country partners’, engagement,

• To discuss key issues relating to the Strategy’s implementation.

The meeting opened with a summary of the Strategy’s progress to date and situational updates from the WHO Regional Office for Africa (AFRO) and Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). This was followed by presentations on emerging research issues in YF control and updates from by the Strategy’s working groups, including the new Immunization Operational Guidance working group. The EYE Secretariat also presented its work on the development of the EYE Country Guidance Toolkit, a resource for country-level partners with targeted and relevant advice on scaled-up approaches to rolling out YF control activities from epidemic investigation to immunization. The second day comprised of presentations from individual countries, and overview of vaccine supply and demand, and presentations from vaccine manufacturers. The third and final day included expert panel discussions and the presentation of proposed work plans by the working groups. The meeting ended with a summary and outline of the Strategy’s next steps, followed by a guided tour of the Pasteur Institute in Dakar—the YF reference laboratory for the African Region.

The Strategy is currently on track to meet its objectives, and a number of achievements were highlighted. The EYE Governance Framework is operational with increasing interactions and engagement from representatives in the Programme Management Group, Leadership Group, and working groups. The new Immunization Operational Guidance Working Group was also established and the role of the Supply and Demand Working Group was expanded to improve coordination between vaccine supply and demand. Delegates also noted the significant progress that has been made towards the target of establishing three regional YF reference laboratories in the African Region. There has also been an increase in global vaccine supplies as a result of combined efforts by partners and strong engagement from vaccine manufacturers. The need to improve readiness in urban areas to protect populations was also highlighted, particularly as outbreaks in recent years have been unpredictable and the factors driving YF risk have changed. It was also noted that although the coverage gap between YF and other vaccine-preventable diseases such as measles is closing, challenges remain in terms of improving the performance of routine immunization for YF. Finally, improved information on YF risk and vaccine coverage is needed to inform campaign prioritization, identify populations most at risk and improve the visibility of vaccine needs.

Delegates provided their valuable input on how to move EYE forward in terms of governance, planning and implementation. Important technical priorities were identified, including effective prioritization of resources at a global level through assessment of YF risk, strengthening implementation of immunization (particularly routine immunization), and enhancing surveillance and laboratory capacity. All partners agreed on the key role of country commitment and ownership in unlocking the potential of the Strategy by implementing mass preventive immunization campaigns and scaling up routine immunization with the support of the EYE Programme Management Group (PMG) comprising representatives from WHO, Gavi and UNICEF. Other achievements in terms of the Strategy’s governance include the establishment of the new Immunization Operational Guidance Working Group and the expansion of the Supply and Demand Working Group’s role.

The meeting provided a forum for open discussion not only on the Strategy’s successes to date and examples of best practice, but also challenges and constraints. The EYE partners and working groups closed the meeting with agreement on their work plans going forward and reaffirmed their commitment to achieving the Strategy’s objectives. Delegates identified action points to move forward with the Strategy’s implementation in the coming years.

UN policewoman recognized for ‘speaking up and speaking out’ on behalf of the vulnerable

 Cache   
INTERNATIONAL, 5 November 2019, Peace and Security - At the core of peacekeeping lies the notion of shared responsibility, the UN peacekeeping chief said on Tuesday, presenting this year’s award for Female Police Officer of the Year, to a woman who “has made a career of speaking up and speaking out on behalf of all vulnerable populations”.

Police Major Seynabou Diouf has worked “tirelessly with her colleagues inside and outside the Mission to empower women, improve conduct, enhance protection, strengthen performance, and thereby build sustainable peace”, Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Peace Operations chief, told the heads of UN police and police experts from 14 peacekeeping operations, gathered at the award ceremony at UN Headquarters in New York.

Major Diouf is one of over 1,400 female police officers serving under the UN flag, carrying out a complex range of tasks – from capacity-building and reform, to community-oriented policing, investigations, protection of civilians, and prevention of sexual and gender-based violence.

“That is impressive enough”, asserted Mr. Lacroix, “but they also provide the added value of gender perspectives and mainstreaming at all levels and at all phases of engagement with host-State institutions and communities”.

He cited examples in South Sudan where female officers are helping women and youth attain better living conditions within and outside camps for the internally displaced; the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) where they are helping to build capacity and accountability in internal security forces; and Mali by promoting confidence-building between citizens and the reconstituted internal defence and security forces.

“Our female officers are also operating in areas affected by the Ebola virus disease, ensuring the required level of security for relief and humanitarian operations”, he maintained.

And female officers are a key element in the sensitization and delivery of training on sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) throughout all UN Missions.

“As part of female police officers’ networks, such as the one Major Diouf leads in MONUSCO [UN Stabilization Mission in the DRC], they help prevent, counter and investigate SEA-related offences, advancing the Organization’s zero-tolerance policy”, elaborated the peacekeeping chief. He congratulated Major Diouf “for her outstanding service” to the UN Nations and Congolese people and stated that “all UN police officers in the field and at the UN Headquarters are inspired” by her example to uphold the core values of the Organization.

  • 2012: Constable Rezi Danismend, Turkey, UNMIL
  • 2011: Deputy Supt. Shahzadi Gulfam, Pakistan, UNMIT

Mr. Lacroix also thanked her family for supporting her and making sacrifices during her long deployments. “The more women we have in peacekeeping, the more effective we all will be”, he concluded.

Going the extra mile

Top UN Police Adviser, Luis Carrilho, spoke about Major Diouf’s experience, noting that in her native Senegal she became the first female police officer to be honoured as a Gardien de la Paix, which was previously reserved for male officers.

“Since early in her career, she has shown her determination to make the extra effort, go the extra mile, to achieve her goals”, he spelled out, flagging that as the team leader of an SEA task force in Goma and president of the UNPOL Women’s Network, “she has demonstrated her commitment to giving women a voice and putting an end to SEA”.

“Her efforts have helped the mission to achieve zero SEA cases in 2018, compared to 140 cases between 2016 and 2017”, he attested, calling her “an incredible force for good in our ongoing efforts to root out SEA and ensure UN personnel at all levels perform to the highest standards”.

Motivated to do more

When Major Diouf learned that she had been selected to receive the award, she said she was proud, but also “humble to be recognized for something that has become almost second nature” to her and her life’s work.

“When I was young, I wanted to be a medical doctor but there was an urgent need to help support my family”, she told those assembled. “Being a police officer in the early years of female recruitment provided recognition and a decent salary, but it also allowed me to contribute to society in ways I had never thought possible”.

With this new accolade, Major Diouf says she now feels “motivated to do more” and will continue “to promote women's rights, speak out against sexual and gender-based violence, and fight marginalization and discriminatory customary and religious practices targeted at women and girls”.

Com fortuna avaliada em US$ 80 milhões, o cantor Akon diz não acreditar no fracasso

Aos 46 anos, Akon pode já não ser um dos cantores mais ouvidos do mundo. Mas isso não significa que o músico e empresário não siga relevante. Em 2018, o artista norte-americano de origem senegalesa ganhou a atenção ao anunciar a construção de uma “Wakanda da vida real” (referência ao país mostrado no filme da Marvel Pantera Negra) em Senegal. O objetivo era desenvolver a região por meio da tecnologia, centrando a economia local em uma criptomoeda própria, a Akoin.

Recentemente, o músico afirmou que as obras tiveram início. O desafio, entretanto, é grande.  Ainda não está claro como o cantor, com uma fortuna avaliada em US$ 80 milhões, pretende tirar o projeto do papel. O site da Akoin, porém, já está no ar. Akon foi convidado para falar sobre sua história e seus projetos no Web Summit, evento de inovação e tecnologia que acontece em Lisboa.

Filho de pai músico, Akon conta que cedo notou algo que faria toda a diferença na sua carreira: gravadoras ganhavam dinheiro com música, não músicos. “Quando eu decidi entrar nessa área, sabia que tinha que estar do lado certo”, diz. Segundo ele, a palavra fracasso praticamente não “existe” em seu dicionário. 

“Eu não acredito em fracasso. Se não deu certo, se você falhou, é porque você não tinha informação suficiente”, diz. Hoje, Akon é dono de uma gravadora e de uma marca de roupas, além de projetos filantrópicos em Senegal.

O empresário diz que as pessoas devem se preparar ao máximo para os desafios - e se cobrar menos em casos de insucesso. O segredo para que isso não aconteça, diz Akon, é ter amor pelo que faz.

“Quando há paixão, fica mais fácil trabalhar duro e se cercar com o máximo possível de informações.” Para Akon, tudo acontece na hora que deve acontecer. “Meu avô dizia que a vida é como um quarto de hotel e estamos apenas de passagem. O caminho é trabalhar duro e dar tempo ao tempo”, diz.

Mané contesta sarcástico a Guardiola: 'Si tengo que tirarme otra vez lo haré'

 Cache   

Londres, 7 nov (EFE).- Sadio Mané, futbolista del Liverpool, contestó de manera sarcástica a las acusaciones de Pep Guardiola de 'piscinero' y dijo que si tirarse le da un penalti seguro que lo volverá a hacer.

Durante el pasado encuentro ante el Aston Villa, Mané fue amonestado por caer en el área, ante lo que el árbitro consideró que fue un 'piscinazo'. Guardiola, en rueda de prensa, dijo que el senegalés 'en ocasiones se tira', para luego más tarde retractarse y explicar su admiración por Mané.

Sin embargo, el africano, después del triunfo del Liverpool ante el Genk, habló sobre las palabras del entrenador español en tono sarcástico.

'Si puedo conseguir un penalti por supuesto que me tiraré de nuevo', aseguró el delantero. 'Si tirarme me va a dar un penalti lo haré. ¿Por qué no? Pero lo que dijo Jürgen es cierto, no me tiro'.

Mané, además, explicó la acción ante el Aston Villa y dijo que hubo contacto. 'Quizás no fue penalti y por eso me sacó una amarilla. No tengo problema con eso'.

'Nunca cambiaré mi manera de jugar,ni mi modo de ver las cosas', finalizó el punta africano. EFE


          

España y Francia se encontrarán en cuartos y Brasil y México avanzan también

 Cache   

Brasilia, 6 nov (EFE).- Las selecciones de España, Francia, Brasil y México, sin necesidad de prórroga, vencieron en sus respectivos encuentros y avanzaron a los cuartos de final del Mundial Sub'17 de fútbol que se disputa en territorio brasileño e instancia en la que ya estaban Corea del Sur y Países Bajos.

En una doble jornada disputada en el estadio Bizerrao de la ciudad de Gama, en el Distrito Federal de Brasilia, México frenó a su similar de Japón, que estaba invicta y había terminado como primera en su grupo sin recibir goles, y con la victoria por 0-2 sobre los asiáticos se instaló en los cuartos de final.

El triunfo de México, que se había clasificado a esta instancia de octavos como uno de los mejores terceros de la fase de grupos, fue firmado con goles de Eugenio Pizzuto y Santiago Muñoz.

El próximo domingo en Cariacica, región metropolitana de Vitoria, la capital de Espírito Santo, México se enfrentará por los cuartos de final a Corea del Sur, que la víspera superó por 0-1 a Angola.

En segundo lugar, Brasil, que terminó la primera fase con tres victorias y como líder firme del Grupo A, sufrió para superar por 3-2, de remontada, a su similar de Chile y conseguir avanzar a los cuartos.

La 'Canarinha' saldó el triunfo con dos goles de Kaio Jorge, uno de ellos de penalti, y otro de Diego Rosa, mientras que Joan Cruz anotó los dos tantos de Chile, que había llegado a los octavos como uno de los mejores terceros de la fase de grupos.

El lunes en el estadio Olímpico de Goiania, la capital de Goiás, Brasil se enfrentará por los cuartos de final al vencedor de la llave entre Ecuador e Italia, que jugarán este jueves en Cariacica.

En la otra jornada de este miércoles, en el estadio Serrinha de Goiania, a primera hora España, primero del Grupo E, se impuso por 2-1 a Senegal, segundo del D, en un partido en el que el equipo europeo solo pasó apuros al final y en el que desequilibraron Roberto Navarro y Germán Valera.

Souleymane Faye descontó para Senegal, que con su derrota dejó a África con todos sus representantes eliminados del torneo.

El rival de España el próximo lunes en el estadio Olímpico de Goiania será Francia, que en el partido de fondo de este miércoles en el Serrinha goleó por 4-0 a Australia con una destacada actuación de Nathanael Mbuku, autor de tres anotaciones, y otro tanto de Enzo Millot.

Los franceses habían terminado primeros del Grupo C, mientras que Australia pasó a los octavos como uno de los mejores terceros.

Los octavos de final concluirán este jueves con dos partidos en Cariacica.

Ecuador, segundo del Grupo B, medirá fuerzas ante Italia, que ocupó la misma posición en el F; mientras que Paraguay, primero del F, protagonizará un duelo suramericano ante Argentina, que terminó en la segunda casilla del E.

El Mundial Sub'17, que reúne 504 jóvenes de 24 países, comenzó el pasado 26 de octubre y terminará el 17 de noviembre.

El torneo orbital para menores de 17 años ha servido en sus ediciones anteriores de escaparate a astros internacionales como Ronaldinho Gaúcho, Luis Figo, Andrés Iniesta, Neymar, Tony Kroos y Carlos Tévez, entre muchos otros.

La XVIII edición del torneo se disputa esta vez en cuatro estadios de las ciudades brasileñas de Gama, en el Distrito Federal de Brasilia; Goiania, capital de Goiás, y Cariacica, en la región metropolitana de Vitoria (Espírito Santo).

37 personas asesinadas en emboscada en Burkina Faso

 Cache   

UAGADUGÚ, Burkina Faso (AP) — Al menos 37 personas fueron asesinadas y otras 60 resultaron heridas en una emboscada de hombres armados contra una caravana cerca de una mina canadiense en Burkina Faso, informó el miércoles un gobernador regional.

La minera Semafo, con sede en Montreal, dijo que el ataque ocurrió a unos 40 kilómetros (25 millas) de su mina Boungou, en la región este de Burkina Faso, y que la caravana de cinco autobuses de empleados iba acompañada de una escolta militar.

El coronel Saidou Sanou, gobernador de la región este del país, informó el saldo provisional en un comunicado, mientras que la compañía se limitó a indicar que estaba al tanto de “múltiples fatalidades y lesiones”.

“El sitio minero Boungou sigue siendo seguro y nuestras operaciones no resultaron afectadas”, señaló Semafo en su comunicado. “Trabajamos activamente con todos los niveles de las autoridades para garantizar la seguridad de nuestros empleados, contratistas y proveedores”.

La situación se ha vuelto cada vez más precaria para Semafo en la zona, que opera dos minas de oro en Burkina Faso. El año pasado, un empleado y un subcontratista fueron asesinados después de que bandidos atacaran un autobús, según Canadian Press. También ese año, cinco miembros de las fuerzas de seguridad murieron en un atentado cerca de la mina Boungou.

Sylvain Leclerc, portavoz de la cancillería canadiense, dijo que no se reportó deceso de ningún ciudadano canadiense. Añadió que el gobierno de Canadá condena el ataque y respalda las labores para restaurar la paz en Burkina Faso.

El atentado destaca el rápido deterioro de la situación de seguridad en Burkina Faso, a donde se han infiltrado yihadistas que han permanecido activos durante años en la vecina Mali. Nadie se ha atribuido el ataque hasta el momento, pero las sospechas se centraron de inmediato en extremistas islámicos que han lanzado una serie de ataques contra iglesias y oficinas públicas en el norte de Burkina Faso en los últimos años.

Acciones militares coordinadas entre cinco naciones de la región, junto con operaciones francesas, no han logrado frenar la creciente violencia en la zona.

El país, que sufrió su primer gran ataque extremista en 2015, es la puerta de entrada al sur rumbo a las naciones costeras de África occidental, y a los líderes regionales les preocupa que los extremistas avancen hacia Togo y Benín.

1-0 Icardi y Navas aupan al PSG a los octavos

 Cache   

París, 6 nov (EFE).- El argentino Mauro Icardi demostró su extraordinario instinto goleador en la Liga de Campeones y consiguió el tanto de la victoria del PSG contra el Brujas que aupa al equipo francés a los octavos de final, y complicó la tarea al conjunto belga, que vio cómo el meta costarricense Keylor Navas detuvo un penalti.

Como viene sucediendo desde que el club cayó en manos cataríes, el PSG ha superado la fase de grupos. En esta ocasión lo hizo de forma imperial, con pleno de victorias en las 4 primeras jornadas, 11 goles a favor y sin que Keylor Navas haya visto perforada su meta. Los franceses tienen, además, casi asegurado el primer puesto del grupo.

La derrota obliga a los hombres de Philippe Clément a ganar los dos partidos que restan y que el Real Madrid no gane al PSG en el Bernabéu para seguir en la máxima competición europea.

La victoria vino bien a un PSG obligado a espantar fantasmas tras haber sumado el pasado viernes la tercera derrota en su campeonato frente al colista Dijon.

Más que por las consecuencias de haber caído en liga, la derrota preocupó por la imagen de desidia que dejaron los parisienses, lo que obligó a Thomas Tuchel a dar un toque de atención.

El PSG no hizo un partido brillante contra el Brujas, pero su imagen mejoró y, sobre todo, demostró que puede contar con sus estrellas y con un gran Navas, a la espera de que se recupere Neymar, que presenció el partido desde la grada.

Sin una avalancha de fútbol, el equipo francés dominó el duelo y tuvo paciencia para esperar a que apareciera la calidad de sus futbolistas y para que Icardi demostrara su eficacia.

El jugador cedido por el Inter de Milán apenas intervino en el juego, pero está dotado de un gran olfato de gol, además de combinar a la perfección con su compatriota Ángel di María, motor del juego ofensivo de su equipo.

Un instinto goleador especialmente importante en un partido en el que el Mbappé, la otra gran estrella del equipo, no estuvo inspirado.

En sus diez primeros partidos en la Liga de Campeones, Icardi ha conseguido ocho dianas, a una de jugadores como Simone Inzaghi, Harry Kane y Sadio Mané, que marcaron nueve en ese mismo número de duelos, los más rápidos de la historia.

El de Rosario se asienta en el equipo, en detrimento del uruguayo Edinson Cavani, máximo goleador histórico del PSG, que paga el lastre de sus lesiones y que saltó al terreno a los 72 minutos de juego, para comprobar con la ovación de la grada que sigue teniendo un lugar privilegiado en el corazón de los aficionados.

El Brujas, por su parte, no se amilanó en el Parque de los Príncipes, pero dejó patente que le falta la eficacia en las áreas que precisan estas competiciones tan exigentes.

Cuando logró superar la defensa francesa, el atacante Dennis se encontró con un inspirado Navas, que protagonizó un puñado de buenas acciones, en el 28 y, en dos tiempos, en el 50.

Pero sobre todo en el 76, después de que Thiago Silva derribara en el área a Diagne, que había salido al campo superada la hora de juego. El penalti lo lanzó el propio senegalés y lo detuvo con destreza el exportero del Real Madrid para evitar el empate y garantizar la clasificación parisiense.

- Ficha técnica:

1- París SG: Navas; Dagba, Thiago Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat; Gueye, Marquinhos, Verratti (Sarabia, m.90); Mbappé (Draxler, m.83), Icardi (Cavani, m.72), Di Maria

0- Brujas: Mignolet; Kossounou, Mechele, Deli, Ricca; Rits (De Ketelaere, m.87), Balanta, Vanaken; Dennis, Okereke (Diagne, m.67), Diatta (Schrijvers, m.77)

Gol: 1-0, m.22: Icardi

Arbitro: Bobby Madden (SCO). Amonestó a los locales Verratti y Thiago Silva y al colombiano del Brujas Balanta

2-1. España se impone a Senegal y espera a Francia o Australia en cuartos

 Cache   

Brasilia, 6 nov (EFE).- España quedó este miércoles a la expectativa de enfrentarse con Francia o Australia en los cuartos de final del Mundial Sub'17 de Brasil tras imponerse por 2-1 a Senegal en un partido en el que solo pasó apuros al final y que desequilibraron Roberto Navarro y Germán Valera.

Bajo un intenso calor en el estadio de la Serrinha, los de David Gordo anularon a los africanos con un dominio casi absoluto del juego y solo sufrió en los últimos cinco minutos, cuando Senegal recortó distancias por medio de Souleymane Faye.

Navarro, que lleva ya tres goles en cuatro partidos, adelantó a la Rojita en el minuto 27 y el capitán Valera sentenció en el 59 al aprovechar un mal rechace de Dione.

Ilaix Moriba, de la base del Barcelona, volvió a brillar en el centro del campo. Pedri estuvo algo más ausente.

España espera ahora rival en cuartos, aunque a priori será Francia, máxima favorita en su duelo contra Australia.

Senegal estuvo errática, nerviosa y por primera vez pareció la debutante que es, después de una primera fase sorprendente en la que ganó a Estados Unidos (1-4), Holanda (1-3), una de las favoritas, y solo cayó ante Japón por la mínima (0-1). Solo despertó al final.

El partido lo fue mascando España poco a poco. Los primeros diez minutos fueron de tanteo, los típicos en los que la máxima es no cometer un error prematuro.

Después impuso un ritmo de juego lento, elaborado, a veces hasta parsimonioso, mientras que Senegal lo apostó todo al contragolpe, a su físico, su gran baza en este Mundial.

Pablo Moreno era el jugador más solicitado por los europeos, pero fue Ilaix el que dio el primer aviso en un tiro de falta directo desde la frontal del área.

La Roja llegaba con soltura hasta la frontal, pero ahí se estrellaba contra el muro levantado por los Leones de Teranga, que parecían infranqueables. Prueba de ello son las seis faltas que cometieron en apenas veinte minutos.

Pero los chicos de David Gordo supieron tener paciencia y hallaron el tesoro a la media hora de juego. Robert Navarro enlazó con Pablo Moreno en la frontal y el delantero del juvenil de la Real Sociedad define con solvencia ante Pape Dione.

Tres goles en cuatro partidos para Navarro y el camino hacia los cuartos de final abierto de par en par para los españoles.

No hubo reacción senegalesa, sí de un hambriento Navarro que tuvo el segundo de la tarde en su cabeza antes del descanso, pero su remate fue demasiado centrado, fácil para Dione.

Moreno lo intentó con un misil desde fuera del área que puso en serias dificultades al portero africano.

Había voluntad de sentenciar, pero el resultado siguió igual cuando el árbitro pitó el descanso. Senegal se fue al intervalo sin un solo disparo entre los tres palos.

En la segunda mitad, los africanos trataron de empujar más, pero España parecía tener la situación controlada.

Menarques rozó el segundo con un disparo potente desde fuera del área que despejó con la punta de la manopla Dione. Moreno, muy activo, también lo intentó.

Pero fue el capitán el que metió el gol de la tranquilidad, aunque con algo de fortuna. Su disparo desde la frontal lo taponó la defensa, pero consiguió llevarse el rebote para colocarse delante del portero y poner el balón al fondo de la red.

España se veía tan cómoda que bajó los brazos antes de tiempo y Senegal lo aprovechó para empezar a cercar el arco de Martínez, quien tuvo que intervenir un disparo de Balde y un cabezazo de Souleymane.

No impidió, sin embargo, el tanto de Faye, que se estiró como un gato en el primer palo para cazar un centro de Balde.

Senegal buscó el empate in extremis, pero Gordo, con dos cambios casi en el descuento, y sus pupilos supieron frenar el ímpetu de los africanos hasta el final.

- Ficha técnica:

2. España: Iván Martínez; Javi López, Álvaro Carrillo, José Martínez, Benat Turrientes; Germán Valera (m.79, Óscar Aranda), Moriba Ilaix, José David Menargues, Pedri González; Pablo Moreno (m.89, Alejandro Francés) y Robert Navarro (m.91, Rafa Marín).

Seleccionador: David Gordo.

1. Senegal: Pape Dione; Cheikh Diouf, Cheikhou NDiaye, Souleymane Faye, Samba Diallo; Birame Diaw, Issaga Kane, Mikayil Faye; Pape Sarr, Insa Boye (m.50, Aliou Balde) e Ibrahima SY (m.65, Mouhamadou Diaw).

Seleccionador: Malick Daf.

Goles: 1-0, m.27: Roberto Navarro. 2-0, m.59: Germán Valera. 2-1, m.85: Souleymane Faye.

Árbitro: el ecuatoriano Guillermo Guerrero amonestó a Kane, Diallo, Navarro y Diouf.

Bordalás: 'La ida tuvo muchas faltas, confiamos que mañana sea diferente'

 Cache   

Redacción deportes, 6 nov (EFE).- José Bordalás, entrenador del Getafe, aseguró este miércoles en rueda de prensa que después del partido de Liga Europa que jugó ante el Basilea marcado por la elevada cantidad de faltas, espera este jueves ante el cuadro suizo un duelo diferente al que se vivió en el Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.

En la rueda de prensa posterior al 0-1 con el que el Basilea se llevó la victoria en el Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, el técnico alicantino lamentó la 'agresividad' del conjunto suizo y se mostró 'harto' de que al Getafe le pongan siempre la etiqueta de equipo duro.

El Basilea, en el primer encuentro, acumuló hasta 9 tarjetas, una de ellas roja a Kevin Bua. Ahora, dos semanas después, Bordalás espera vivir un duelo diferente en ese aspecto: 'El partido de ida tuvo muchas faltas, confiamos en que el de mañana sea diferente', comentó.

Además, dijo que el resultado del primer encuentro entre ambos equipos ya es 'historia' y dejó claro que el Getafe sólo piensa en el partido que disputará mañana en el estadio de St. Jakobs-Park.

Bordalás recordó que el Basilea tiene un punto de ventaja sobre el Getafe en el grupo C, pero indicó que todavía 'quedan tres partidos' para el final de la primera fase y resaltó que el choque de este jueves será 'de mucha exigencia para ambos equipos'.

También habló sobre la presencia de toda la plantilla en la expedición que viajó a Suiza, incluidos los no inscritos en la competición (el portugués Vitorino Antunes, el senegalés Amath Ndiaye, Xabier Etxeita y Markel Bergara):

'La decisión de venir de toda la plantilla ha sido de los jugadores. Es un partido importante para la historia del Getafe', señaló.

Por último, tuvo palabras para los cerca de 250 hinchas del Getafe que viajaron a Basilea para presenciar el encuentro en directo: 'Agradecemos muchísimo a nuestros aficionados que vengan a apoyarnos tan lejos. Esperamos dedicarles un buen partido', finalizó. EFE

Fires Are Ravaging Brazil’s Pantanal, the World’s Largest Tropical Wetlands

Posted: 06 Nov 2019 10:38 PM PST

(RIO DE JANEIRO) — Fires in Brazil’s Pantanal wetlands have ripped through the biodiverse region, consuming an area the size of London in just the past 10 days, burning some animals alive and sending others fleeing.

The inferno in the world’s largest tropical wetlands is the latest environmental disaster facing Brazil, coming after a mysterious oil spill that is afflicting beaches in the northeast and August fires that raged in the Amazon region.

The Pantanal, which sprawls over parts of Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay, is a popular ecotourism destination considered one of the best places to see wildlife in South America. During the wet season, rivers overflow their banks and make most of the region accessible only by boat and plane. In the dry season, wildlife enthusiasts flock to see jaguars lounging on riverbanks, as well as macaws, giant river otters and caiman.

But this year’s dry season has extended much longer than usual.

“Any spark in this area these days of high temperatures and very low humidity will start fires like those we’ve seen in recent days,” Júlio Cesar Sampaio, chief of WWF Brasil’s Cerrado Pantanal program, said by phone. “Only rain will decrease the risk of fire.”

Rescue efforts have so far found burned remains of caimans, iguanas and snakes. SOS Pantanal, a local group, reported that hyacinth macaws, a vulnerable species, lost much of their primary food source as coconut and palm trees went up in flames, and the blue-and-yellow birds have been seen flying about aimlessly.

Between January and November, the area had 516% more fires than the same period last year, according to data from Brazil’s National Institute of Space Research.

While there have been more fires in the Amazon, they have been dispersed across an area roughly half the size of the United States. The blazes in the Pantanal, by contrast, are concentrated in Corumba, a municipality in Mato Grosso do Sul state. Corumba has had about twice as many fires as the worst-affected municipalities in the Amazon.

“There is no precedent for a fire of this scale,” said Angelo Rabelo, president of the Instituto Homem Pantaneiro, an environmental group based in Corumba.

Fires in the Pantanal this time of year are abnormal because heavy rains usually start in October. Rabelo said waters in the rivers and wetlands drained much faster this year. The Paraguay River, one of the region’s main fluvial veins, is at a 20-year low.

“Climate change is here,” he said.

With little precipitation, high temperatures, low humidity and strong winds, fires are spreading fast through the low vegetation, authorities say.

The Mato Grosso do Sul state government said in a press release that the fires are “of a proportion never-before registered” and that the causes were both the dry conditions and “criminal activity.”

Firefighters say the cause is likely local people setting fires to clear land of vegetation, a practice also blamed for many of the Amazon fires. Such burning is particularly common among cattle ranchers, who use fire rather than costly equipment to prepare pastures.

Fires in the Pantanal this year have been overshadowed by the months-long period of blazes seen in the Amazon region. The governor of Mato Grosso do Sul declared a state of emergency on Sept. 11 after over 10,000 square kilometers (nearly 3,900 square miles) burned in the previous five weeks in the state’s portion of the Amazon.

The Hyacinth Macaw Institute, an environmental group, released a report Wednesday saying the Pantanal destruction in September and October hit the area’s biggest center for hyacinth macaw reproduction and also came in the middle of mating season. Of 98 nests monitored, at least four baby birds died, their nostrils clogged with soot.

The fires have only worsened since, and still the rain hasn’t fallen.

“I’ve been a firefighter for 23 years,” said Waldemir Moreira, who runs the state fire department’s environmental protection unit. “We’ve certainly had fires before, but it’s much more serious now. We want the world to pay attention to our Pantanal, too.”

Northern Mexico Town Prepares Funerals After Nine Americans Were Killed in Drug Cartel Violence

Posted: 06 Nov 2019 10:30 PM PST

(LA MORA, Mexico) — Under a strong security presence, this remote farming community prepared to hold the first funerals Thursday for some of the nine American women and children killed by drug cartel gunmen.

Dozens of high-riding pickups and SUVS, many with U.S. license plates from as far away as North Dakota, bumped across dirt and rock roads over desert, arid grasslands and pine-covered mountains Wednesday as night fell on this community of about 300 people. Many of the residents are dual U.S. and Mexican citizens who consider themselves Mormon but are not affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

At least 1,000 visitors were expected to bunk down in the hamlet overnight ahead of Thursday’s funerals, filling floor space in the 30 or so homes or sleeping in tents they brought with them. At least one cow was slaughtered to help feed the masses, as well as the few dozen Mexican soldiers guarding the entrance to La Mora.

Steven Langford, who was mayor of La Mora from 2015 to 2018, said he expected the killings to have a “major” impact on the community. Once upon a time he didn’t think about moving around the area in the middle of night, but in the last 10 to 15 years things “got worse and worse and worse.” As many as half of the residents could move away, he feared.

“It was a massacre, 100% a massacre,” said Langford, whose sister Christina Langford was one of the women killed. “I don’t know how it squares with the conscience of someone to do something so horrible.”

When gunmen opened fire on them Monday, the Mexican army, the National Guard and Sonora state police were not there to protect them. It took them about eight hours just to arrive.

To many, the bloodshed seemed to demonstrate once more that the government has lost control over vast areas of Mexico to drug traffickers.

“The country is suffering very much from violence,” said William Stubbs, a pecan and alfalfa farmer who serves on a community security committee in the American-dominated hamlet of Colonia LeBaron. “You see it all over. And it ain’t getting better. It’s getting worse.”

The lack of law enforcement in rural areas like the northern states of Chihuahua and Sonora once led the dual U.S.-Mexican residents of places like Colonia LeBaron to form their own civilian defense patrols.

Stubbs said that after the 2009 killing of anti-crime activist Benjamin LeBaron, residents positioned themselves each night for two years with high-powered binoculars to keep watch from the large “L” for “LeBaron” that stands on a hillside above the town.

Since then, he said, the cartels have left Le Baron and the town of Galeana a few kilometers to the north alone. But he said they have watched the cartels get stronger in the past two decades, with nearby communities in the mountains suffering from violence and extortion.

This week, he said, the military told him that the town of Zaragoza had been about 50% abandoned.

The army’s chief of staff, Gen. Homero Mendoza, said Wednesday the attack that killed three American mothers and six of their children started at 9:40 a.m. Monday, but the nearest army units were in the border city of Agua Prieta, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) and 3½ hours away.

Soldiers didn’t start out for the scene until 2:30 p.m. and didn’t arrive until 6:15 p.m. — even while five surviving children lay hiding in the mountains with bullet wounds.

“There are areas where the government’s control is very fragile,” said Alejandro Hope, a Mexican security analyst.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador created the militarized National Guard after he took office last December to help law enforcement, but its 70,000 troops have to cover a vast territory.

“The government’s main policy tool, the National Guard, is not where it should be,” Hope said. “It should be in the mountains, and it’s not there.”

He noted that Sonora and Chihuahua states, with over 160,000 square miles (420,000 square kilometers) between them, have only about 4,100 National Guard agents stationed there, or about one for every 40 square miles.

Questions have also arisen over whether the army can do its job even when it is present. On Oct. 17, in Sinaloa state, soldiers were forced to release the captured son of imprisoned drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to avoid further bloodshed after Sinaloa cartel gunmen counterattacked in greater numbers in the city of Culiacan.

Colonia Le Baron is a place where the U.S. influence is evident everywhere: pickup trucks with license plates from California, Idaho, Colorado, Washington, and English-speaking customers eating hamburgers at Ray’s Restaurant, Coffee & Grill. Many of the dual citizens were born here, and their families have been here for decades.

Stubbs predicted that some people will move their families to the United States out of fear but will ultimately come back, as happened after the 2009 killing.

He dismissed López Obrador’s “hugs, not bullets” security strategy of trying to solve underlying social problems instead of battling drug cartels with military force.

“I’m really shocked actually of his way of thinking, and it ain’t going to solve the problems,” Stubbs said.

Residents know they can’t fight the cartels on their own.

“We’re not experts in military and war and weapons,” Stubbs said. “We’re farmers, and we have great families and big families, and we definitely want our families to be peaceful.”

Mexican officials said the attackers may have mistaken the group’s large SUVs for those of a rival gang. The Juarez drug cartel and its armed wing, known as “La Linea,” or “The Line,” are fighting a vicious turf war against a faction of the Sinaloa cartel known as the “Salazar.”

“Those who attacked the occupants (of the vehicles), they let the children go, so we can deduce that it was not a targeted attack” on the families, said Mendoza, the army chief of staff.

Most of the victims lived in La Mora, about 70 miles (110 kilometers) south of Douglas, Arizona. Many in the hamlet are related to the extended LeBaron family.

The killers were believed to be from La Linea, whose gunmen entered Sinaloa cartel territory the previous day and set up an armed outpost on a hilltop near La Mora and an ambush farther up the road. The Juarez cartel apparently wanted to prevent Sinaloa gunmen from entering their territory in Chihuahua state.

On Wednesday dozens of army soldiers, federal and state police and National Guard troops provided security along the bumpy route from Chihuahua state to La Mora, in neighboring Sonora, retracing in reverse the route the victims were on when they were ambushed. People in the caravan clapped the agents on the back in thanks and gave them food, bottles of water and baseball caps.

Langford said he and others come and go frequently between La Mora and the United States, working north of the border to build lives and families in a place he described as a “paradise” for children to grow up. Behind the lot where he and his wife raised 11 kids, they are fond of fishing and swimming.

“We’ve always known the dangers. We’ve seen the people doing their deal. We always had the policy, ‘We don’t bother them.’ We never dreamed something like this could happen,” said Langford. “Now this place is going to become a ghost town. A lot of people are going to leave.”

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson Shakes Off a Rocky Start to the Elections

Posted: 06 Nov 2019 06:41 PM PST

(LONDON) — Prime Minister Boris Johnson told British voters Wednesday that they have to back his Conservatives if they want an end to Brexit delays, as he tried to shake off a rocky start to the governing party’s election campaign.

Speaking outside his No. 10 Downing St. office on the first official day of Britain’s five-week campaign, Johnson said the political impasse over Britain’s departure from the European Union made him want to “chew my own tie in frustration.”

“I don’t want an early election, and no one much wants to have an election in December, but we have got to the stage where we have no choice,” he said.

Johnson, trying to set the stage for a people-versus-Parliament campaign, said lawmakers were “refusing time and again to deliver Brexit and honor the result of the referendum.”

In fact, lawmakers approved Johnson’s EU divorce deal in principle last month, but asked for more time to scrutinize it. Johnson then withdrew the bill and pushed for an early election instead.

Johnson also slammed his main rival, left-wing Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, comparing him to former Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin and — erroneously — claiming he had sided with Russian President Vladimir Putin over a nerve-agent attack on British soil.

All 650 seats in the House of Commons are up for grabs in the Dec. 12 election, which is coming more than two years early. Some 46 million British voters are eligible to take part in the country’s first December election in 96 years.

Johnson urged voters to deliver a Conservative majority so Britain could “put uncertainty behind us.” With that support, Johnson vowed he would get Parliament to ratify his Brexit deal and the country would leave the EU as scheduled on Jan. 31.

Brexit was supposed to happen on Oct. 31, but with Britain’s politicians deadlocked, the bloc granted the U.K. a three-month delay.

While unofficial campaigning has been ramping up for weeks, the campaign formally began when Parliament was dissolved Wednesday. Johnson went to Buckingham Palace to notify Queen Elizabeth II of the dissolution before unveiling the party’s election slogan — “Get Brexit done and unleash Britain’s potential” — at a rally in the central England city of Birmingham.

The Conservative campaign has had a bumpy start. Just minutes before Johnson spoke Wednesday, Cabinet Minister Alun Cairns resigned over allegations about a former aide’s role in a rape trial.

Cairns said he was quitting as Welsh secretary because of “speculation” surrounding the “very sensitive matter,” which is under investigation. He said he was confident he would be cleared of wrongdoing.

Cairns denies allegations that he knew his former staffer Ross England made claims about a victim’s sexual history when he was a witness in a 2018 rape trial. That is not allowed, and the trial collapsed. The judge accused England of deliberately sabotaging the trial. Cairns later endorsed England as a candidate for an upcoming Welsh Assembly election.

On Tuesday, another Conservative, outgoing House of Commons leader Jacob Rees-Mogg, was forced to apologize for suggesting that the victims of a 2017 London apartment block inferno that killed 72 people lacked common sense for following fire department advice to wait in their apartments for help.

The comments drew sharp rebukes from opposition politicians — and from rap star Stormzy, who urged the Conservative lawmaker to resign and tweeted: “These politicians are actual aliens.”

The Conservatives were also criticized for posting a doctored video of a senior Labour figure on Twitter that appeared to show him failing to answer a question, when in fact he did. Conservative Party chair James Cleverly claimed Wednesday the ad was just “a lighthearted satirical video.”

In another over-the-top political insult, Johnson used a column in the Daily Telegraph to accuse the Labour Party under Corbyn of attacking the rich “with a relish and vindictiveness not seen since Stalin persecuted the kulaks,” the wealthier peasants targeted by the Soviet regime in the 1930s.

In his Downing Street speech, Johnson also claimed inaccurately that Corbyn had “sided with Putin” after a former Russian spy and his daughter were attacked with a nerve agent in the English city of Salisbury.

Corbyn initially asked for “incontrovertible evidence” that Moscow was behind the 2018 attack, as Britain’s Conservative government had insisted. He later said he believed Russia was responsible for the poisoning.

Other parties in the race include the Liberal Democrats, who want to cancel Brexit; the Scottish National Party, which opposes Brexit and wants Scotland to leave the U.K.; and the Brexit Party, which says Britain should leave the bloc without a deal.

The Labour Party has its own woes, with many of the party’s lawmakers uneasy about Corbyn’s firm left-wing views and ambivalence over the EU. On Wednesday, deputy leader Tom Watson, who has often clashed with Corbyn, announced that he was stepping down from politics.

Watson acknowledged his “political differences” with Corbyn in a resignation letter but said the decision was personal rather than political.

Labour wants to shift the election debate away from Brexit and onto domestic issues such as health care, the environment and social welfare, saying it will reverse Britain’s increasing social inequality.

Corbyn has labelled Johnson’s economic plans “Thatcherism on steroids,” in reference to the free-market, low-spending ideology of the late former Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

“I don’t do personal attacks,” Corbyn told supporters in Telford, central England. He said, if elected, he would be “a very different kind of prime minister.”

“I was not born to rule,” Corbyn said, contrasting himself with the affluent, Oxford University-educated Johnson. “I don’t pursue the kind of politics that thinks it’s all a game, a parlor game, a debating society game.”

An Ambush on a Canadian Mining Company Convoy Has Killed 37 People in Burkina Faso

Posted: 06 Nov 2019 06:09 PM PST

OUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso (AP) — Gunmen attacked a convoy near a Canadian mining site in Burkina Faso, killing at least 37 people and wounding 60 others, the regional governor said late Wednesday.

Montreal-based Semafo said the bloodshed happened about 25 miles (40 kilometers) from its Boungou mine in Burkina Faso’s Eastern region and involved five buses of employees who were being accompanied by a military escort.

Col. Saidou Sanou, the region’s governor, gave the provisional casualty toll in a statement. The mining company said only that it was aware of “several fatalities and injuries.”

“Boungou mine site remains secured and our operations are not affected,” Semafo said in its statement. “We are actively working with all levels of authorities to ensure the ongoing safety and security of our employees, contractors and suppliers.”

The area has become increasingly precarious for Semafo, which operates two gold mines in Burkina Faso. Last year, an employee and subcontractor were killed when a bus was targeted by bandits, according to Canadian Press. Later last year, five members of Burkina Faso’s security forces were killed in an attack near the Boungou mine.

Sylvain Leclerc, spokeswoman for the Canadian foreign ministry, said there were no reports of any Canadian citizen among the casualties. She added that Canada’s government condemns the attack and supports efforts to bring peace to Burkina Faso.

The violence underscores the rapidly deteriorating security situation in once peaceful Burkina Faso, which has been infiltrated by jihadists who have been active for years in neighboring Mali. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but Islamic extremists have staged dozens of attacks on churches and public officials across the north of Burkina Faso the last few years.

Concerted military actions by five regional countries, along with a French operation, have failed to stem the growing violence.

The country, which experienced its first major extremist attack in 2015, is a gateway south into coastal West Africa, and regional leaders worry the extremists could be moving into Togo and Benin.

Saudi Arabia Recruited Twitter Workers to Spy on Users: U.S. Investigators

Posted: 06 Nov 2019 03:07 PM PST

SAN FRANCISCO — The Saudi government recruited two Twitter employees to get personal account information of their critics, prosecutors said Wednesday.

A complaint unsealed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco detailed a coordinated effort by Saudi government officials to recruit employees at the social media giant to look up the private data of thousands of Twitter accounts.

The accounts included those of a popular journalist with more than 1 million followers and other prominent government critics.

It also alleged that the employees — whose jobs did not require access to Twitter users’ private information — were rewarded with a designer watch and tens of thousands of dollars funneled into secret bank accounts. They were charged with acting as agents of Saudi Arabia without registering with the U.S. government.

Ahmad Abouammo, who left his job as the media partnership manager responsible for Twitter’s Middle East region in 2015, was also charged with falsifying documents and making false statements when questioned by FBI agents. He was expected to make his initial court appearance in Seattle federal court Wednesday afternoon.

That same year, investigators alleged that a Saudi working as a social media adviser for the Saudi royal family, recruited Twitter engineer Ali Alzabarah by flying him to Washington, D.C., for a private meeting with an unnamed member of the family.

“Within one week of returning to San Francisco, Alzabarah began to access without authorization private data of Twitter users en masse,” the complaint said.

The effort included the user data of over 6,000 Twitter users, including at least 33 usernames for which Saudi Arabian law enforcement had submitted emergency disclosure requests to Twitter, investigators said.

After being confronted by his supervisors at Twitter, Alzabarah allegedly admitted to accessing user data and said he did it out of curiosity.

Alzabarah was placed on administrative leave, his work-owned laptop was seized and he was escorted out of the office. The next day, he flew to Saudi Arabia with his wife and daughter and has not returned to the United States, investigators said. A warrant for his arrest was issued as part of the complaint.

False Alarm Triggers Hijacking Protocol at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, Airline Says

Posted: 06 Nov 2019 12:48 PM PST

Passengers and crew on board a plane at Schiphol airport in Amsterdam were reported safe after Dutch police began investigating a “suspicious situation” on Wednesday.

A tweet from the official Schiphol airport’s account said the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee, the Dutch military police, is looking into the situation on board of a plane at the airport. The police’s official Twitter account also confirmed the investigation.

Details about what police were investigating on the plane were not immediately available.

About an hour after announcing the start of the investigation, police and airport officials said the passengers and crew were safely off the plane. The investigation on the plane continues, they said.

The airline Air Europa said Wednesday afternoon that a false alarm prompted the investigation. A warning that “triggers protocols on hijackings at the airport” was activated by mistake on a flight from Amsterdam to Madrid, according to a tweet from the airline.

Air Europa noted in a followup tweet that its flight to Madrid would take off shortly. Schiphol airport said later Wednesday afternoon that regular operations had resumed at the airport.

Schiphol airport is one of the world’s busiest hubs, with more than 70 million passengers passing through each year.

 

The ‘OK Boomer’ Meme Has Officially Entered Parliamentary Record in New Zealand

Posted: 06 Nov 2019 09:20 AM PST

The decisive rise of the “OK Boomer” meme continues.

On Monday, an MP from New Zealand’s Green Party, 25-year-old Chlöe Swarbrick, delivered a speech in support of a Zero Carbon Bill, which would provide a framework to reduce the country’s greenhouse gas emissions and establish a new Climate Change Commission. The government’s previous plan to limit greenhouse gases has been criticized by climate activists as insufficient.

“Mr. Speaker, how many world leaders for how many decades have seen and known what is coming, but have decided that it is more politically expedient to keep [climate change] behind closed doors?” she asked. “My generation and the generations after me do not have that luxury.”

“In the year 2050 I will be 56 years old… yet, right now, the average of this 52nd Parliament is 49-years old,” she continued. In response, another MP began to heckle her.

“OK boomer,” Swarbrick shot back.

Not sure what she’s referring to? The phrase “OK boomer” comes from a viral meme that originated on the social media site TikTok. The videos usually include an audio clip of an older man saying, “The millennials and Generation Z have the Peter Pan syndrome, they don’t ever want to grow up.” Teens then include their reactions, always a variation on the phrase “OK Boomer.”

The phrase has taken off across the Internet and beyond, and become a common retort used by young people when confronting condescension from older people, usually those of the Baby Boomer generation.

 

In an interview with Stuff, Swarbrick explained her use of the phrase: It’s a “simple summarisation of collective exhaustion,” she said. “Young people have suffered a decade of jibes about how millennials have ruined everything and need to ‘pull our socks up,’ or something.”

“‘OK boomer’ acknowledges that you cannot win a deeply polarized debate — facts don’t matter,” she continued. “It’s better to acknowledge that perhaps energy is better spent elsewhere.”

Hungarian Mayor Resigns Amid ‘Yacht Orgy’ Scandal

Posted: 06 Nov 2019 07:36 AM PST

(Bloomberg) — The mayor of western Hungary’s largest city, who was re-elected despite the publication of a video showing him participating in an orgy on a luxury yacht, has resigned less than a month after winning a fourth term.

Zsolt Borkai, the mayor of Gyor and a 1988 Olympic champion gymnast, said in an open letter on Wednesday that he was stepping down because of his “moral predicament.” His resignation is effective Friday. Under pressure, Borkai had already quit Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s ruling party last month.

Hungary’s opposition had seized on the Borkai scandal during the campaign for nationwide municipal elections as evidence of moral decay under Orban’s nine-year rule. The video was widely seen as having helped tip close races in favor of a united opposition, including in Budapest, and deal the Hungarian leader his worst electoral setback in more than a decade.

Child Survivors of Mexico Ambush Hid in Brush, Walked as Much as 14 Miles for Help

Posted: 06 Nov 2019 07:25 AM PST

(GALEANA, Mexico) — The eight children, some mere infants, who survived the ambush in northern Mexico not only escaped the drug cartel gunmen who killed their mothers but managed to hide in the brush, with some walking miles to get help despite grisly bullet wounds.

In a testament to a mother’s devotion, one woman reportedly stashed her baby on the floor of her Suburban and got out of the vehicle, waving her arms to show the gunmen she wasn’t a threat. She may have moved away from the vehicle to distract their attention; her bullet-ridden body was found about 15 yards (meters) away from the SUV.

The mother was one of nine U.S. citizens — three women and six children all living in northern Mexico — slaughtered Monday when cartel gunmen ambushed three SUVs along a dirt road in an attack that left one vehicle a burned-out, bullet-riddled hulk. Mexican officials said the gunmen may have mistaken the group’s large SUVs for those of a rival gang amid a vicious turf war.

The five wounded children were seriously enough injured that Mexican authorities flew them to the border in a military helicopter to receive hospital care in the United States. Sonora state health officials said they were “stable” at the moment of transfer. Three other children who were not wounded are in the care of family members in the tiny hamlet of La Mora in northern Mexico.

But what the children went through in the remote, mountainous area of Sonora state is nearly indescribable.

Kendra Miller, a relative, said in an account of the shootings that Devin Blake Langford, 13, was one of the few uninjured young people and quickly took charge, eventually walking about 14 miles (22.5 kilometers) back to La Mora for help.

“After witnessing his mother and brothers being shot dead, Devin hid his six other siblings in the bushes and covered them with branches to keep them safe while he went for help,” according to the account. “When he took too long to return, his 9-year-old sister left the remaining five to try again.”

That girl, Mckenzie Rayne Langford, walked for hours in the dark before she was found several hours after the other children were rescued. She was listed as missing for a while.

Altogether, the kids were on their own from about 1:00 p.m., when the ambush began, until about 7:30 p.m., when they were rescued. Relatives from La Mora tried to reach them before that, but were turned back by gunfire. The area is the site of a cartel turf war.

In recordings of calls between the rescuers, they can be heard debating whether it was better to risk more lives, or wait for an hour or two until Mexican army troops arrived. It was an agonizing decision.

What they saw when they found the children was terrifying.

Cody Greyson Langford, 8, had been shot in the jaw and bled profusely. Another girl had been shot in the foot and the back.

The killers were apparently members of the Juarez drug cartel and its armed wing, La Linea — “The Line” — whose gunmen had entered Sinaloa cartel territory and set up an armed outpost on a hilltop and an ambush further up the road. The Juarez cartel apparently wanted to send a message that it controlled the road into Chihuahua. It was this invasion force that the American mothers and their three vehicles drove into.

It was only after the first vehicle was shot up and set afire that 50 or 60 Sinaloa cartel gunmen showed up to see what had happened.

But it isn’t the cruelty of the cartel, but the bravery, innocence and sacrifice of the victims that relatives want remembered.

Austin Cloes, a relative of the victims, said from his home in Salt Lake City that they were good people who loved their children and enjoyed their quiet lives based around a successful pecan farming operation.

“This sort of thing shouldn’t go unnoticed,” said Cloes, who works with at-risk youth and coaches high school basketball. “And these sorts of people shouldn’t just be buried without their names being put out there. These are great people.”

The dead in the attacks included a mother, her 8-month-old twins, her 10-year-old daughter, a 12-year-old son. Another mother lay dead in the front seat of another Suburban, along with the bullet-riddled bodies of her sons, ages 11 and 2.

The victims lived in Sonora state, about 70 miles (110 kilometers) south of Douglas, Arizona, in the hamlet of La Mora, which was founded decades ago by an offshoot of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Many La Mora residents call themselves Mormons but are not affiliated with any church.

A number of such American farming communities are clustered around the Chihuahua-Sonora state border. Many members were born in Mexico and have dual citizenship. While some of the splinter groups were once polygamous, many no longer are.

All of the victims were apparently related to the extended LeBaron family in Chihuahua, whose members have run afoul of the drug traffickers over the years. Benjamin LeBaron, an anti-crime activist who founded neighborhood patrols against cartels, was killed in 2009.

The victims had set out to visit relatives in Chihuahua. One woman was headed to the airport in Phoenix to meet her husband.

While a drug-related violence has been raging for years in Mexico, the attack underscored the way cartel gunmen have become increasingly unconcerned about killing children as collateral damage. In August in Chihuahua state, cartel gunmen fired 123 bullets at a man and also killed three girls, ages 4, 13 and 14. In June, a young boy was killed along with his father in Sonora state. In July, a 10-year-old was killed during a robbery in Puebla state.

Criminal investigators said late Tuesday that a suspect was arrested, but it was unclear whether the person had taken part in the ambush.

In a statement posted on Facebook, the Agency for Criminal Investigation for the state of Sonora said that the suspect was found in the town of Agua Prieta, right at the border with the U.S. state of Arizona, holding two hostages who were gagged and tied inside a vehicle.

The suspect, whose gender was not specified in the statement, was also found in possession of four assault rifles and ammunition, as well as various large vehicles including a bullet-proofed SUV, the agency said.

Buckingham Palace Says Queen Elizabeth’s New Clothes Will No Longer Feature Real Fur

Posted: 06 Nov 2019 05:13 AM PST

(LONDON) — Buckingham Palace says new outfits designed for Queen Elizabeth II will not use real fur.

The palace said Wednesday the decision does not mean the queen will dispose of all the fur outfits she already has. The palace statement says “the queen will continue to re-wear existing outfits in her wardrobe.”

The decision pleased animal rights activists, who have sometimes criticized the monarch for the fur pieces in her collection of designer clothes.

Claire Bass, director of the Humane Society International/UK, says “we are thrilled Her Majesty has officially gone fur-free.” She says the queen’s decision will send a positive message that fur is no longer considered fashionable.

E a propósito das mudanças de toponimia de Bissau, fomos revisitar o livrinho "Nha Bijagó: respeitada personalidade da sociedade guineense (1871-1959)" (edição de autor, 2011, 159 pp., il,).  (**)

Do prefácio, escrito por Eduardo Ferreira, respigamos entretanto os seguntes excertos (*):

(...) Ao ler este livro  não podemos deixar de pensar nas grandes figuras femininas, que foram as “sinharas” e que tanta influência tiveram na costa ocidental africana, em particular nos Rios da Guiné, entre o século XVI e finais do século XIX. 

Essas mulheres que eram na sua maioria crioulas, geriam com enorme maestria os negócios dos seus maridos europeus ou eurodescendentes, resolvendo conflitos, realizando pactos com as autoridades locais, de modo a que as actividades comerciais decorressem sem delongas e fossem coroadas de êxito. A sua condição de crioula, dava à “sinhara” uma capacidade negocial ímpar, pois sendo detentora de uma dupla identidade cultural, era com facilidade que fazia a ponte entre as populações locais e os alógenos,  nomeadamente os europeus. 

Ficaram famosas na Guiné algumas dessas “sinharas”, como a Bibiana Vaz, a Aurélia Correia conhecida por “mamé Aurélia”, a Júlia Silva Cardoso também conhecida como “mamé Júlia” e a Rosa Carvalho Alvarenga, mãe de Honório Pereira Barreto, entre muitas outras. 

Leopoldina Ferreira, vulgo “Nha Bijagó”, é em meu entender uma das últimas grandes “sinharas” da Guiné, pois o seu perfil enquadra-se na perfeição no papel desempenhado por essas influentes mulheres africanas, referenciadas por diversos autores como foi o caso de André Álvares d’ Almada na sua obra “Tratado Breve dos Rios de Guiné do Cabo Verde” de 1594 ou de George E. Brooks com “Eurafricans in Western Africa” publicado em 2004 ou ainda Philip J. Havik com “Trade in the Guinea-Bissau Region: the role of african and luso-african women in the trade networks from early 16th to the mid 19th century” publicado em 1994, para apenas citar alguns.

(...) Um aspecto particularmente interessante nesta obra de A. J. Estácio, é a ligação cronológica que o mesmo faz, entre importantes acontecimentos políticos, administrativos e militares, que tiveram lugar na então Guiné Portuguesa, e as diversas fases etárias da biografada, ainda que esses factos não tenham qualquer ligação directa com a personagem tratada neste livro! 

O autor quis desse modo, dar-nos a conhecer alguns factos da história da então colónia/província da Guiné, que tiveram lugar entre 1870 e 1959, período que abarca a vida de “Nha Bijagó”  (...)

(...) Com esta publicação, António Júlio Estácio, revela-nos mais uma vez, o seu grande apego e dedicação às coisas e às gentes da terra que o viu nascer. (...)

Nha Bijagó (1871-1959)
Leopoldina Ferreira Pontes, "Nha Bijagó"  (Bissau, 1871 - Bissau, 1959) e a cronologia da cidade de Bissau

Aproveitando a vasta e valiosa pesquisa historiográfica do António Estácio, uma homem de várias pátrias (Guiné-Bissau, Portugal, Angola, Mavau...= vamos aqui recolher e sintetizar algumas datas marcantes do desenvolvimento urbano de Bissau, correspondente ao período em que viveu a "Nha Bijagó"(com a devida vénia ao autor...)


(i) Leopoldina Ferreira (Pontes, pelo primeiro casamento...) nasceu em Bissau em 4 de novembro de 1871. Era filha ("ilegítima", segundo a terminologia do Código Civil em vigor na época, o de 1866) de João Ferreira Crato (natural do Crato, Alto Alentejo, comerciante na Guiné) . Morreu aos 87 anos, em 26 de Maio de 1959. O nominho "Nha Bijagó" deve tê-lo recebido da mãe, Gertrudes da Cruz (de etnia bijagó, natural de Bissau).
(ii) Pouco antes de ela nascer, em 1871, o 18º Presidente dos Estados Unidos da América, Ulysses Simpson Grant , proferiu a sentença referente à posse da ilha de Bolama, pertencente ao, então, distrito da Guiné, favorável a Portugal o que pôs termo ao conflito se arrastava com os ingleses.

(iii) Nessa altura Bissau era uma povoação encravada entre a fortaleza de S. José e um muro, com 4 metros de altura. A igreja e o cemitério ficavam no interior da Amura. De entre as poucas ruas e ruelas, extra-muros, a Rua de S. José era considerada como a artéria mais importante. Ia do portão da Amura, que estava aberto das 8 às 21h00, ao baluarte da Bandeira. Após 5 de outubro de 1910, passou a Rua do Advento da República; depois, a Rua Dr. Oliveira Salazar e, após a independência e a 21 janeiro  de 1975 a Rua Guerra Mendes.

(iv) Em 1872, tinha ela cerca de um ano "quando as ruas de Bissau começaram a ser iluminadas a petróleo. Eram, todavia, poucos os candeeiros"...

(v) A 1877, foi criado o Concelho de Bissau, sendo de 573 habitantes a população na área murada, composta por 391 nativos, 166 oriundos de Cabo Verde e, apenas, 16 europeus.

(vi) Em 1879, ainda a "Nha Bijagó" não tinha completado os oito anos, foi “a sede do Governo transferida para Bolama.” 

(vii) No dia 3 de agosto do mesmo ano, assinou-se o tratado de cessão a Portugal do território de Jufunco, ocupado pelos Felupes.

(viii) Pouco antes de Leopoldina completar os 12 anos de idade, foi publicado o decreto que dividiu a província da Guiné  em quatro circunscriçõess, criando-se assim os concelhos de Bolama, Bissau, Cacheu e Bolola. 

(ix) Tinha ela 14 anos quando Portugal e a França celebraram [, em Paris, em 1886,] a convenção referente à delimitação das possessões dos 2 países na África Ocidental e que correspondem às atuais Repúblicas do Senegal, Guiné-Conacri e Guiné-Bissau.
.
(x) As más condições climatéricas, agravadas pela insalubridade da região, dizimavam a população de tal modo que, em 1886, Bissau era o menos povoado de todos os aglomerados urbanos da Guiné.

(xi) Tinha “Nha Bijagó” já 18 anos quando foi, então, lançada, em 1889,  a primeira pedra para a tão almejada ponte-cais,( Foi designada  por ponte Correia e Lança, em homenagem a Joaquim da Graça Correia Lança  Governador da Guiné., de 1888 a 1890,)

(xii) Ano e meio depois, o chefe dos Serviços de Saúde defendia que a capital deveria regressar à ilha de Bissau, ainda que para local ligeiramente diferente, isto é, puxando-a para a zona de Bandim que se situava “em terreno suficientemente elevado e com vertentes para a praia arenosa.”, o que, em termos de drenagem e salubridade, era, indubitavelmente, vantajoso.

(xiii) À beira de completar 22 anos, registaram-se, no interior da fortaleza, dois incidentes graves, em 1893: o incênndio da da enfermaria militar e uma explosão;

(xiv) A 7/12/1893, a vila sofreu um grande cerco, movido por elementos da etnia Papel a que se juntaram os Balantas de Nhacra.

(xv) Em 1984, é demolida uma  parte do muro de 4 m. de altura que ia do Fortim Nozolini ao Baluarte da Balança, com o objetivo de se construir uma igreja católica.

(xvii) Por volta dos seus 25 anos, dada a elevada densidade populacional intramuros, o governador Pedro Inácio Gouveia autorizou “o aforamento de, terrenos no olhéu do Rei”m tendo, em 1900, ali, chegado a ser instalado um lazareto.

(xviii) A implantação da República em Portugal levou à mudança do Governador e, em 1912/13, o primeiro-tenente Carlos de Almeida Pereira manda demolir o muro que constrangia a expansão urbana.

(xix) Com a República há mudanças na toponímia:

Rua de S. José > Rua do Advento da República
Rua do Baluarte da Bandeira > Rua Almirante Reis
Travessa Larga > Travessa do Dr. Bombarda
Travessa da Botica > Travessa 5 d’ Outubro
Travessa da Ferraria > Travessa Honório Barreto

(xx) Depois da "campanha de pacificação" do cap João Teixeira Pinto (1913/15),  Bissau é finalmente  objeto dum plano de urbanização que lhe permitiu crescer de forma disciplinada e segundo malha ortogonal bem definida. A autoria do plano é do tenente-coronel engenheiro José Guedes Viegas Quinhones de Matos Cabral que, no início da década de vinte, foi director das Obras Públicas na Guiné.

(xxi) Para além do Mercado Municipal e do Cemitério, por detrás do Hospital, etc., procedeu-se ao aterro e à regularização do molhe da rua marginal {, Rua Agostinho Coelho, numa evocação do primeiro governador da Guiné],  e à construção do edifício-sede da Alfândega.

(xxii) Ao completar 62 anos, teve lugar, em 1933, a transferência da sede da comarca judicial da Guiné, que passou de Bolama para Bissau.

(xxiii) Em 1934, procedeu-se ao lançamento da primeira pedra para a construção do monumento ao Esforço da Raça, da autoria do Arq Ponce de Castro. (. As pedras foram enviadas do Porto e o monumento foi inaugurado em 1941; o único monumento colonial que resistiu ao camartelo revolucionário.)

Fortaleza da Amura. Foto de Manuel Coelho (c. 1966/68)
(xxiv) Em 1936, a Associação Comercial e Industrial da Guiné cedeu ao Estado o terreno que lhe fora concedido, o qual se destinava à sua sede e ficava em frente ao  edifício do Banco Nacional Ultramarino, para no local se construir um grande edifício onde, a par do Tribunal, foram instalados os Serviços de Administração Civil, assim como os Serviços de Fazenda;

(xxv) Em 1939 foi a Fortaleza de S. José, vulgo Amura, classificada como Monumento Nacional.

(xxvi) Em finais da década de 30 foi celebrado o contrato para a realização dos estudos de abastecimento de água, melhoramento que só se viria a concretizar  na segunda metade da década  de 40.

(xxvii) Transferência da capital de Bolama para Bissau,  em 19 de Dezembro de 1941. Em 1945 tomna posse o novo governador, Sarmeno Rodrigues. (***)

 (xxviii) Em meados dos anos 40 efectua-se um novo projecto de urbanização, mudam de nome  as vilas de Canchungo (Teixeira Pinto) e Gabú (Nova Lamego), procede-se à construção do depósito de água no Alto de Intim, assim como do Palácio do Governador; constroem-se moradias no “Bairro Portugal” e surge o Bairro de Santa Luzia; Deu-se início à edificação da Catedral, do Museu e Biblioteca, etc.

Nova ponte-cais (1953) e estátua de Diogo Gomes.

(xxix) Procedeu-se à colocação de estátuas como a do navegador Nuno Tristão, a de Teixeira Pinto, a do grande guineense Honório Pereira Barreto, etc.

(xxx) A Rua Honório Barreto foi, na Guiné, a primeira a ser asfaltada e reabriu em 6/4/1953.

(xxxi)  De tudo isto e a muito mais “Nha Bijagó” foi contemporânea, como da conclusão da nova ponte cais, inaugurada em 18/5/1953 pelo Subsecretário de Estado Raul Ventura, à construção do aeroporto em Brá e à sua transferência para Bissalanca; à visita do Presidente da República Craveiro Lopes; à inauguração do edifício situado na, então, Praça do Império, onde ficou a sede da Associação Comercial e Industrial da Guiné, etc. (****)

5 personas han muerto tras el naufragio de una patera en Lanzarote. Otras 5 personas han desaparecido. Ya son 336 los muertos al intentar llegar a nuestras costas en lo que va de año. Sabemos de dónde vienen -Marruecos, Argelia, Senegal Nigeria- pero casi nunca porqué.


          

World: Education Above All Foundation, World Bank Partner to Ensure Education for Two Million Out of School Children Around the World

WASHINGTON DC, September 20, 2019 - This week, Education Above All Foundation (EAA) and the World Bank announced a ground-breaking partnership to enrol two million out of school children from more than 40 countries by 2025. During a meeting with World Bank President David Malpass, Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Founder and Chairperson of Education Above All Foundation, stressed the importance of this framework agreement.

The agreement commits up to $250 million in funding for developing countries striving to enable access to quality primary education for all of their still out-of-school children. Unlike traditional philanthropic efforts of organizations like EAA who usually fund local non-profits directly, this innovative funding model aims to take lessons learned in the field to scale, through direct support to participating countries with implementation, evaluation, and reporting - enabling accountability and systemic change at the national level.

Out of school children (OOSC) are among the hardest to reach in each country due to the many and often compounding barriers to education including extreme poverty, distance to school, and conflict. This new agreement calls on governments to utilise funds to prioritise out of school children by ensuring their access to quality primary education through results-based financing. The agreement highlights the importance of multi-stakeholder partnerships in supporting developing nations, in providing education for all, and meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals, particularly SDG 4 (ensuring inclusive and quality education for all and promoting lifelong learning).

"The World Bank is committed to addressing the global learning crisis. The partnership with Education Above All is critically important in this effort. There are still too many out of school children around the globe. Together we will bring these children into school and help them learn and fulfil their potential. Learning for all is a foundation for building strong human capital for every country," said Jaime Saavedra, Global Director for Education at the World Bank.

"Our partnership with Qatar and Education Above All will play an especially important role in the Middle East and North Africa," said Ferid Belhaj, World Bank Vice President for the Middle East and North Africa. "As access to quality education is critical for the region to unlock the huge potential of its large youth population, whose energy and creativity could become a new source of dynamic and inclusive growth."

Through this new funding structure, EAA and The World Bank will support financing opportunities for resource mobilization, education advocacy, and poverty reduction in developing countries across three continents. Proposed targeted countries include Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cameroon, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Iran, Iraq, Kenya, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Malawi, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Morocco, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Paraguay, Philippines, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Syria, Tanzania, Thailand, Uganda, and Zambia.

About Education Above All (EAA) Foundation

The Education Above All (EAA) Foundation is a global education foundation established in 2012 by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser.

About World Bank Group Work on Education

The World Bank Group is the largest financier of education in the developing world. We work on education programs in more than 80 countries and are committed to helping countries reach Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4, which calls for access to quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030. In 2018, we provided about $4.5 billion for education programs, technical assistance, and other projects designed to improve learning and provide everyone with the opportunity to get the education they need to succeed.

Global Appeal Status

  • At the end of October 2018, 21 Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP) and the Syria Regional Response Plan (3RP) require US$25.20 billion to assist 97.9 million people in urgent need of humanitarian support. The plans are funded at $11.97 billion; this amounts to 47.5 per cent of financial requirements for 2018. Requirements are lower than in September 2018 due to revision of the Ethiopia Humanitarian and Disaster Resilience Plan (HDRP). For the remainder of 2018, humanitarian organizations require another $13.23 billion to meet the needs outlined in these plans.

  • Global requirements are $1.10 billion higher than at this time last year. Overall coverage and the dollar amount were only marginally higher in late October than at the same time in 2017.

  • On 8 October the Government of Ethiopia and humanitarian partners issued a Mid-Year Review of the HDRP. The revised plan reflects changes in the humanitarian context, and requires $1.49 billion for 2018, as opposed to the March 2018 requirement of $1.6 billion to reach some 7.88 million people in need of food or cash relief assistance and 8.49 million people with non-food assistance in the course of the year. Despite the general good performance of this year’s belg (spring) rains, the number of people targeted for relief food and cash support remains largely unchanged due to the significant spike in internal displacement since April 2018.

Security Council Briefings and High Level Missions

  • At a briefing to the Security Council on 23 October, Under-Secretary-General/Emergency Relief Coordinator (USG/ERC) Mark Lowcock called on all stakeholders to do everything possible to avert catastrophe in Yemen. In a follow up note on the humanitarian situation in Yemen of 30 October, the USG/ERC thanked the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, United States, Kuwait, the United Kingdom and all donors for the record amount raised for the humanitarian appeal in 2018 which had meant nearly 8 million people had received assistance across the country; more than 7 million people had received food and more than 420,000 children been treated for malnutrition; clean water, sanitation and basic hygiene support is now available to 7.4 million people and about 8 million men, women, girls and boys had benefited from health services.

  • At a Security Council briefing on the humanitarian situation in Syria on 29 October, the USG/ERC urged the Security Council and key Member States to ensure that the ceasefire holds in Syria's northwestern province of Idlib to prevent a military onslaught and overwhelming humanitarian suffering. He thanked donors for the $1.7 billion contributed so far towards the HRP for Syria, but pointed out that this HRP is currently funded at less than 50 per cent.

  • In her statement to the Security Council on 30 October, Assistant Under-Secretary-General/Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator (ASG/DERC)
    Ursulla Mueller spoke of the steady decline in humanitarian funding for the Ukraine over the years and mentioned that the HRP for 2018 is funded at only 32 per cent. This is simply not enough to cover food, health care, water, sanitation and other life-saving assistance. ASG/DERC Mueller appealed to donors to increase their support for consolidating gains in anticipation of the fast-approaching winter.

  • During a joint mission to Chad and Nigeria (5-7 October) with UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner, as part of a series of country visits the two will make to advance humanitarian-development collaboration, the USG/ERC called on donors to fulfil pledges and announcements of over $2 million made in Berlin last month at the High Level Conference on the Lake Chad Region (3-4 September). He noted the importance of maintaining humanitarian response in the region as needs were still very high.

  • Following her visit to the Republic of the Philippines from 9 to 11 October, ASG/DERC Mueller announced that OCHA would continue advocating for sustained funding to address humanitarian needs of people displaced by the Marawi conflict while ensuring that support for the transition to longerterm and sustainable recovery is forthcoming.

Upcoming Event

  • The Global Humanitarian Overview 2019 and World Humanitarian Data and Trends will be launched in the course of joint event to take place in the Palais des Nations, Geneva, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on 4 December 2018.

Pooled Funds

  • Between January and the end of October 2018, country-based pooled funds (CBPFs) have received a total of $708 million in contributions from 32 donors (including contributions through the UN Foundation). During the same period, a total of $616 million from the 18 operational funds was allocated towards 1,071 projects with 575 implementing partners. Nearly 40 per cent ($246 million) of the funds were allocated to international NGOs and some 26 per cent (approximately $160 million) to national NGOs. UN agencies received 32 per cent ($202 million) of the allocated funds and Red Cross/Red Crescent organizations received over 1 per cent (some $8 million) of all allocated funds. The largest allocations per sector went to health; food security; water, sanitation and hygiene; nutrition; emergency shelter and NFIs.

  • Between 1 January and 31 October 2018, the Emergency Relief Coordinator approved $477 million in grants from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to support life-saving activities in 45 countries. This includes $297.7 million from the Rapid Response Window and $179.7 million from the Underfunded Emergencies (UFE) Window. A total of $31.6 million in Rapid Response grants was approved in October in response to cholera outbreaks in Zimbabwe, Niger and Nigeria; flooding in Laos; and the population influx from Venezuela to Brazil, Ecuador and Peru; as well as to support Government relief efforts following the earthquake and tsunami in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. The UFE 2018 second round was completed this month, with $30.6 million approved in September and the remaining $49.4 million of the round’s $80 million released in October to assist people caught up in nine chronic emergencies in Angola, Bangladesh, Burundi, Central African Republic, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Libya,
    Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Sudan.

Country Updates

  • Funding for humanitarian activities in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) is at an all-time low. Nearly all agencies requesting financial support through the HRP have received less funding in 2018 than in previous years. This leaves humanitarian partners ill-placed to meet emerging needs or respond to the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Gaza, where the rise in casualties during the recent demonstrations has stretched Gaza’s overburdened health system.
    Humanitarian agencies appealed in August for $43.8 million to respond to the Gaza crisis, particularly trauma management and emergency health care, in 2018. On 22 September, the Humanitarian Coordinator for the oPt launched an $8.3 million allocation from the oPt Humanitarian Fund to implement critical HRP projects, mainly in Gaza. Stocks of medical supplies are in extremely short supply and depleted to almost half of requirements. Since late October, the Gaza power plant has been providing up to eleven hours of electricity a day. However, around 250 health,
    WASH and essential solid waste facilities continue to rely on UN-procured emergency fuel for running back-up generators. This year’s intensive operations have depleted funds and stocks and the $1 million allocated by the oPt Humanitarian Fund for fuel supplies will only last until the end of November. Further and urgent financial support is therefore required.

  • Conditions in Yemen continued to deteriorate in October, pushing the country to the brink of famine. On 23 October, the USG/ERC warned the Security Council that without urgent action, up to 14 million people – half the population – could face pre-famine conditions in the coming months.
    Assessments are currently under way, with initial results expected in mid-November. The economic crisis is raising the risk of famine. The Yemeni rial has depreciated by nearly 50 per cent over the last year. Commodity prices have soared, as Yemen imports 90 per cent of staple food and nearly all fuel and medicine.

Urgent steps are required to avert immediate catastrophe. First, a cessation of hostilities is needed; this is especially critical in populated areas.
Second, imports of food, fuel and other essentials must be able to enter Yemen without impediment. Roads must remain open so these goods can reach communities across the country. Third, the Yemeni economy must be supported, including by injecting foreign exchange, expediting credit for imports and paying salaries and pensions. Fourth, international funding must increase now to allow humanitarians to meet growing needs for assistance. Finally, all parties must engage with the UN Special Envoy to end the conflict. Yemen remains the largest humanitarian operation in the world, with more than 200 partners working through the Yemen HRP.

Spotlight on the recent disaster in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia

On Friday 28 September, a 7.4 magnitude earthquake and tsunami struck Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. On 5 October, the Government and country team/regional office issued the Central Sulawesi Earthquake Response Plan to support the six priority areas identified by the Government. Some existing programmes in Sulawesi will be augmented and others entailing WASH, health, camp management and logistics activities will be developed.

The response plan will focus on immediate response over a three-month period. On 2 October and Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, and Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock (USG/ERC) announced an allocation of US$15 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to bolster relief assistance for people affected by this emergency

Global appeal status

At the end of September 2018, 21 Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP) and the Syria Regional Response Plan (3RP) require $25.32 billion to assist 97.4 million people in urgent need of humanitarian support. The plans are funded at $10.63 billion; this amounts to 42 per cent of financial requirements for 2018. For the remainder of 2018, humanitarian organizations require another $14.69 billion to meet the needs outlined in these plans.

Global requirements are $1.13 billion higher than at this time last year. Overall coverage and the dollar amount were only marginally higher in late September 2018 than at the same time in 2017.

High-level events The USG/ERC made a strong appeal for HRP funding for South Sudan and Yemen at two high-level events at UN headquarters last month. At an event on 25 September on the crisis in South Sudan during the General Assembly, the USG/ERC asked that donors sustain their generous and large response to the crisis to enable life-saving activities and to encourage a multi-year approach to crisis response with stronger focus on stabilization, resilience and recovery from the conflict. In his statement to the Security Council on Yemen on 21 September, he announced that we may now be approaching a tipping point beyond which it will be impossible to prevent massive loss of life as a result of widespread famine across the country.

Three days later, the Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen reiterated the call for more funding and more humanitarian partners on the ground to respond to the unprecedented emergency in Yemen.
The UNHCR Commissioner and USG/ERC ended a mission to Afghanistan last month with a call for donors to urgently increase and sustain support for humanitarian response in the country, and to take measures to find durable solutions for millions of people caught up in Afghanistan’s displacement crisis.
On 3-4 September, in a follow-up event to the 2017 Oslo Humanitarian Conference on Nigeria and the Lake Chad Region, Germany, Nigeria, Norway and the UN co-hosted the High-Level Conference on the Lake Chad Region in Berlin. On this occasion, UN Member States, international organizations and civil society actors discussed humanitarian assistance, stabilization and development cooperation in the region. Humanitarian and development announcements made at the conference totalled $2.17 billion and it is estimated that $1.02 billion was for humanitarian assistance in 2018 for Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria. Of that amount, approximately $875 million (86%), has been made available to recipient organizations.

International financial institutions pledged an additional $467 million in concessional loans.

Concerning pledging conferences this year, according to data reported to FTS by donors and recipient organizations as of 18 September, 95 per cent of pledges have been fulfilled for Yemen, 91 per cent of pledges have been fulfilled for Somalia, and 82 per cent of pledges have been fulfilled for DRC. In each of these countries, many donors have contributed above and beyond their original announcements.
For Syria and the Region, the EU recently published a tracking report on announcements made in Brussels in April which can be accessed here:

www.consilium.europa.eu/media/36437/syria-report-six.pdf Donors are urged to quickly fulfil outstanding pledges made at the conferences and to consider providing additional funding before the end of the year.

Pooled funds

Between 1 January and 30 September 2018, the Emergency Relief Coordinator approved $395 million in grants from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), including $265 million from the Rapid Response Window and $130 million from the Underfunded Emergencies Window, for life-saving activities in 38 countries. A total of $40 million was released in September to assist people affected by underfunded emergencies in Angola, Bangladesh, Burundi, Central African Republic and Rwanda; as well as people affected by flooding in India and Myanmar, and Venezuelan refugees and migrants arriving in Ecuador and Peru.

Country-based pooled funds (CBPFs) have received a total of US$667 million from 31 donors between January and September 2018. During this period, the 18 operational funds have allocated $478 million to 921 projects, implemented by 525 partners. Over 60 per cent of all CBPF allocations were disbursed to NGOs, including 21 per cent ($100.6 million) directly to national NGOs. Another 36 per cent was allocated to UN agencies and a smaller portion to Red Cross/Red Crescent organizations, which have received 1.2 per cent of funding ($5.8 million) for direct project implementation. The first allocation for 2018 of the Yemen Humanitarian Fund (YHF) for $90 million is ongoing and focuses on covering gaps in first-line responses in cluster strategies and providing life-saving support to people in newly accessible and hard-to-reach areas. In Ethiopia, the Humanitarian Coordinator launched a $30 million reserve allocation targeting immediate and life-saving activities in the nutrition, health, WASH, agriculture/livestock, emergency shelter/NFI, education and protection sectors. Finally, reserve allocations were also ongoing in Afghanistan and Myanmar during September.

In Myanmar, an integrated CBPF and CERF allocation strategy ($1 million CBPF reserve and $2.95 million CERF) prioritized projects aligned with the Myanmar Humanitarian Fund (MHF) operating principles and the CERF Life Saving Criteria, aiming at achieving the main objective of addressing critical unmet needs of flood‐affected people across the country, particularly the most vulnerable people.

Country updates

The humanitarian situation in Afghanistan has deteriorated considerably over the past year, primarily due to the drought, but also as a result of worsening violence. Overall, the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance and protection services in Afghanistan has increased dramatically since the beginning of 2018, from 3.3 million people to 5.5 million people. Over half of the needs are generated by conflict and population movement. In the meantime, chronic vulnerabilities such as poverty, food insecurity, and unemployment are also increasing. Afghanistan is experiencing its most severe drought since 2011, with some 20 provinces affected by significantly reduced rainfall from winter snow. Some 2.2 million chronically food insecure people are on the verge of acute food insecurity, with four provinces – Badakhshan, Badghis, Faryab and Herat – likely to pitch into a state of emergency unless they receive comprehensive and sustained humanitarian assistance. Drought-related displacement is growing in volume and geographical scope – now constituting 40 percent (119,000) of the overall number of people displaced in Afghanistan in 2018. It is likely that the Afghan population – some 15 million of whom are dependent on the agriculture sector across these 20 provinces for livelihoods – will take years to recover. Overall, more than 12 million Afghans have been displaced internally or abroad during the last four decades of conflict, natural hazards, disasters and the resulting socio-economic upheaval.

Since 25 August 2017, extreme violence in Rakhine State, Myanmar, has driven over 727,000 Rohingya refugees across the border into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Statelessness imposed over generations has rendered this population seriously vulnerable, even before the severe traumas of this most recent crisis. The vast majority of these refugees now live in congested sites that are ill-equipped to handle the monsoon rains and cyclone seasons – with alarmingly limited options for evacuation. Low levels of funding are seriously hampering the capacity of humanitarian to respond effectively to the scale and scope of the humanitarian needs in the refugee camps, particularly to ensure safe shelter, appropriate educational options, nutritional support, and most critically, the quality of health services available for an extremely vulnerable population. For example, with the health sector only 23 per cent funded, programming for non-communicable diseases, malaria, TB, and HIV/AIDS remains insufficient, and partners are struggling to scale up service provision which is critical for emergencies including obstetric emergencies.

The alarming financial shortfall for humanitarian programmes in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has had detrimental consequences on the lives of the most vulnerable. More than 40 per cent (10.3 million) of the population remains undernourished. One in five children under-five is stunted with likely irreversible physical and cognitive repercussions. More than 9 million people lack access to essential health services. Pregnant women, young children and people living with diseases, in particular, struggle to access the care they need. Those living in rural areas are most at risk. Recent floods in North and South Hwanghae provinces have affected 280,000 people, killed 76 and displaced over 10,500 people, and chronic underfunding is making it difficult for UN agencies and their partners to respond to needs caused by the natural disasters that frequently hit the country. The 2018 Needs and Priorities plan seeks $111 million to assist 6 million out of 10.3 million people in need of humanitarian assistance.

The prospect of protracted displacement in Iraq is real, warranting a whole-of-system approach to respond to needs and work toward durable solutions. Some 1.9 million Iraqis remain displaced, with insecurity, lack of livelihood opportunities, destroyed housing, and explosive remnants of war contamination among the key barriers to returning. Considerable protection concerns exist, especially for women and children with perceived ties to ISIL. Critical funding gaps are hampering the response, particularly in food security, health, shelter and non-food item sectors, and the WASH sector. Urgent funding priorities include water supply interventions in the south, especially in Basra, which is experiencing water shortages and a gastrointestinal disease outbreak. Child health and nutrition services for up to 180,000 pregnant and lactating mothers, 300,000 children under the age of five and 5,000 newborn babies lack adequate funding.

The level of humanitarian need in Myanmar remains high and is driven by multiple factors including armed conflict, protracted displacement, inter-communal violence, statelessness, segregation, discrimination, food insecurity and vulnerability to natural disasters. More than 720,000 people – mostly stateless Rohingya Muslims – were forced to flee the country in August last year and there remains little tangible progress on addressing the root causes of violence and discrimination against this population. More than 128,000 Muslims confined in camps, some since violence erupted in 2012, have little to no access to essential services. In Kachin and Shan, persistent cycles of displacement due to conflict continue to raise serious protection concerns, with annual flooding exacerbating existing vulnerabilities. In both areas of the country, access remains a critical challenge.

Recent violence in Tripoli has highlighted the fragile situation in Libya. Thousands of people have been displaced, including families staying in schools converted into makeshift IDP shelters. The violence led to a breakdown in basic services, with frequent electricity cuts and compromised access to water. The situation is compounded by liquidity challenges which deepen needs among the most vulnerable. Humanitarian partners are responding to pre-existing and new needs, but the response is undermined by underfunding. With only 24 per cent of financial requirements covered, the ability of partners to provide assistance in life-saving sectors such as water, sanitation and hygiene and protection, as well as education, is limited. Additional funds are required to support a nation-wide measles vaccination campaign, targeting 3 million children against the backdrop of an ongoing outbreak.

South Sudan continues to experience extensive humanitarian needs, including dire levels of food insecurity and malnutrition. In September, 6.1 million people (59% of the population) faced crisis, emergency, or catastrophe levels (IPC Phase 3-5) of food insecurity. This includes 47,000 people in catastrophic conditions (IPC Phase 5). Urgent funding is needed in the coming months to procure and preposition food and other life-saving supplies during the approaching dry season, when these activities are most cost-effective. Food insecurity is expected to decline slightly following the October-December harvest, and rise again in January-March, when 5.2 million people are expected to be in IPC Phases 3-5, including 36,000 in IPC Phase 5. Resources are also needed to scale up preparedness and capacity to respond to Ebola Virus Disease. Though no cases have been reported in South Sudan, there is a risk of cross-border spread.

An agreement on 17 September to establish a demilitarized zone in Idlib, Syria, provided a reprieve for close to three million people placed at risk by a major military escalation in the area, of whom more than two million were already in need of humanitarian assistance. Civilian deaths and injuries due to airstrikes and shelling, as well as displacement and attacks impacting health facilities, were reported in the Idlib area in the weeks prior to the announcement of the agreement. Response and readiness efforts continued in Idlib and other parts of the north-west, drawing to a large extent on cross-border assistance channels from Turkey. Despite significant access challenges, humanitarian assistance continued to be provided across the country, including in areas that had recently come under Government control such as eastern Ghouta, northern rural Homs and much of the south-west. Cross-border assistance to the south-west under the framework of Security Council resolution 2393 remained suspended, but assistance was delivered from Damascus, primarily through the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC). Deployment of an inter-agency convoy from Damascus to Rukban on the Syria-Jordan border became increasingly urgent, with reports of a deterioration of the humanitarian situation in a camp estimated to be hosting up to 45,000 people. The situation in eastern Deir-Ez-Zor, in the east of the country, also deteriorated, with clashes linked to counter-ISIL operations displacing thousands in rural areas with limited humanitarian access and reports of restrictions on the onward movement of displaced people.

Steep economic decline accelerated in Yemen in September, with the Yemeni riyal losing about 30 per cent of its value against the US dollar during the month. Because Yemen imports the vast majority of its food and other basic commodities, this has translated into sharp rises in prices of food, fuel and other essentials – placing these goods increasingly out of reach for millions of Yemenis at a time when famine remains a real threat. In parallel, conflict in Hudaydah has intensified, with about 550,000 people displaced by the violence since 1 June. Aid operations have dramatically expanded, reaching 8 million people with direct assistance across the country every month. Partners have provided rapid response kits to nearly all families recently displaced from Hudaydah, as well as additional assistance based on assessed needs. Generous funding has been key: the 2018 HRP has received US$1.96 billion, or 67 per cent of requirements. Despite these achievements, recent developments threaten to overwhelm the operation’s capacity to respond. Urgent steps are needed to stabilize the economy, keep all ports and main roads open, uphold international humanitarian law, and move towards a political solution. Partners are also seeking full funding for the $3 billion HRP in order to deliver all activities in the plan.

KEY MESSAGES

↗ International prices of wheat and maize rose in March for the third consecutive month and averaged more than 10 percent above their levels in December 2017. Prices were mainly supported by concerns over the impact of prolonged dryness in key-growing areas of the United States of America and Argentina, coupled with strong demand. International rice prices remained relatively stable.

↗ In South America, severe dry weather and strong demand underpinned the domestic prices of grains in key exporting country, Argentina, while the price of yellow maize spiked also in Brazil in March.

↗ In East Africa, in the Sudan, the strong upward surge in prices of coarse grains faltered in March but they remained at record or near-record highs, reflecting the removal of the wheat subsidies and the strong depreciation of the local currency.

↗ In Southern Africa, in Madagascar, prices of locally-produced and imported rice declined in February from the record highs reached in January with the harvesting of the minor season paddy crop and following an appreciation of the Malagasy Ariary.

KEY MESSAGES

↗ International prices of wheat and maize increased further in February, mainly supported by weather-related concerns and currency movements. Export price quotations of rice also continued to strengthen, although the increases were capped by subsiding global demand for Indica supplies.

↗ In East Africa, in the Sudan, prices of the main staples: sorghum, millet and wheat, continued to increase in February and reached record highs, underpinned by the removal of the wheat subsidies and the strong depreciation of the Sudanese Pound.

↗ In Southern Africa, in Madagascar, prices of rice hit record highs at the start of the year, as a result of tight supplies following a sharp drop in the 2017 output to a substantially below-average level and a weaker currency.

↗ In West Africa, prices of coarse grains continued to generally increase in February and reached levels above those a year earlier despite the good harvests gathered in late 2017, due to a strong demand for stock replenishment, coupled with localized production shortfalls and insecurity in some areas.

Key messages

  • International prices of wheat increased in September mostly because of weather-related concerns, while maize quotations fell further on crop harvest pressure. International rice prices remained generally firm, supported by seasonally tight availabilities of fragrant rice and strong demand for higher quality Indica supplies.

  • In East Africa, prices of cereals remained at levels above those of a year earlier in most countries, particularly in Ethiopia reflecting seasonal tightness amid concerns over the impact of the Fall Armyworm infestation on the main harvest and in South Sudan mainly due to the ongoing conflict.

  • In Asia, prices of rice in Bangladesh increased again in September and reached record highs, with seasonal patterns exacerbated by the reduced 2017 main season output and concerns over the impact of the July-August floods on the second season crop, to be harvested from November.

Digital Rights and Inclusion Learning Lab (DRILL) Fellowship at Paradigm Initiative, Deadline : 20 December 2019

 Cache   

Digital Rights and Inclusion Learning Lab (DRILL) Fellowship at Paradigm Initiative, Deadline : 20 December 2019

Paradigm Initiative (PIN) is a social enterprise that builds ICT-enabled support systems and advocates for digital rights in order to improve the livelihoods of under-served young Africans. Our digital inclusion programs include a digital readiness school for young people living in under-served communities (LIFE) and a software engineering school targeting high potential young Nigerians (Dufuna). Both programs have a deliberate focus to ensure equal participation for women and girls.

Our digital rights advocacy program is focused on the development of public policy for internet freedom in Africa, with offices in Abuja, Nigeria (covering the Anglophone West Africa region); Lome, Togo (Francophone West Africa); Yaoundé, Cameroon (Central Africa); Arusha, Tanzania (East Africa) and Lusaka, Zambia (Southern Africa). Our policy advocacy efforts include media campaigns, coalition building, strategic litigation, capacity building, research, report-writing and hosting the annual, bilingual, Digital Rights and Inclusion Forum where more than 200 digital rights stakeholders from over 35 countries (mostly African countries) meet to discuss, network and advance work in digital rights.

Paradigm Initiative has worked in communities across Nigeria since 2007, and across Africa from 2017, building experience, community trust and an organizational culture that positions us as a leading social enterprise in ICT for Development and Digital Rights on the continent. We have a robust partnership network made up of non-profit organizations, youth groups, local businesses, international organizations and government agencies who provide opportunities to the communities we work with. The organization has organized the Digital Rights and Inclusion Forums in Nigeria since 2013, with an average of 200 participants participating each year and over 30 African countries represented.  Paradigm Initiative also championed the drafting, advocacy for and eventual passage of the Digital Rights and Freedom Bill Nigeria by the House of Representatives and the Senate in Nigeria. The organization has strong competencies in advocacy, media and communications, capacity building, research and coalition building. It has organized Internet Policy Trainings/Digital Rights Workshops in Cameroon, Gambia, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, Uganda and Zambia.

 

Program Background

There are both enormous challenges and opportunities for realizing the ambitious task of creating an inclusive, healthy, safe and open Internet in the coming decade for all Africans, including marginalized and vulnerable populations such as women and girls, people with lower income levels or living in rural communities, sexual minorities, the elderly and persons with disabilities. Connecting the next billion who mostly live on the African continent requires not only technological and commercial innovations, but also new models of collaboration among all stakeholders.

Paradigm Initiative will host a Digital Rights and Inclusion Learning Lab (DRILL) from February 2020, at its headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria. DRILL has a mission to host innovative learning around digital rights and inclusion in Africa, and serve as a space for both practice and reflection, aimed to involve and connect different stakeholders and create dialogue amongst researchers, social innovators, policymakers and actors, the private sector, as well as civil society.

As a lighthouse for digital rights and inclusion advocacy in Africa, learning activities will take place at the lab in order to evolve new thinking on digital rights and inclusion strategy for Africa. There are a variety of activities that will take place, including but not limited to, focused future-facing research; presentations; ecosystem meetings and discussions focused on digital rights and/or inclusion hosted within the ecosystem; and general communication about the lab’s activities.

DRILL will offer a space for big thinking, evaluation of digital rights and digital inclusion programs, and future-proofing ecosystem activities. DRILL will host innovators, researchers and/or entrepreneurs-in-residence at the PIN HQ so they can host biweekly ecosystem/sector meetings (to share insight/ideas), biweekly presentations (to share outcomes of their research and/work) and work with the Executive Director to record a monthly DRILL podcast on topical issues.

Call for DRILL Fellows

Paradigm Initiative is opening calls for a pioneer fellow of the Digital Rights and Inclusion Learning Lab to work at the Paradigm Initiative headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria, from February 2020 for a 3- or 6-months period. The fellowship is for a period of three months at a time, but can be renewed for another three months on completion, depending on planned activities and joint review between the Fellow and PIN. As a mid-career fellowship, potential candidates will be expected to have had a minimum of 5 years’ experience as technology or social innovators, researchers, policy experts, and/or entrepreneurs.

Fellows’ Responsibilities

Applicants will be required to briefly discuss their intended focus for the fellowship period during the application process. Paradigm Initiative will expect to receive a two-page project plan from shortlisted candidates. For the successful candidate, this would be discussed and agreed on with the PIN leadership team, no later than two weeks after the fellowship start date. The successful fellow will commit a minimum of 16 hours per week to the fellowship, working from the PIN HQ in Lagos.

  • The fellow will be expected to host biweekly ecosystem/sector meetings at the PIN HQ (to share insight/ideas), biweekly presentations (to share outcomes of their research and/work) and a monthly DRILL podcast to be recorded with the Executive Director of Paradigm Initiative
  • The Fellow will host a side session on a topical and relevant digital rights and/or inclusion theme, in the specific area of their interest, at the annual Digital Rights and Inclusion Forum
  • The last month of the fellowship will feature a final meeting, a final presentation and the final podcast from the selected fellow. There will be an exit interview and opportunity to reflect on what has been achieved in the 3- to 6-month period with PIN’s leadership team

The fellowship is open to potential fellows living outside Lagos, where Paradigm Initiative’s headquarters, the home of the Digital Rights and Inclusion Learning Lab, in located. However, there are no relocation allowances or travel support costs provided for the inaugural fellowship.

PIN Responsibilities

For the inaugural fellowship, Paradigm Initiative will not provide remuneration to the selected fellow. However, Paradigm Initiative will support selected individuals with recommendation letters or such as may be required towards possible fundraising, as long as income is declared and a public report will be published at the end of their project. PIN will cover costs associated with learning activities at the Digital Rights and Inclusion Lab and provide office space, an opportunity to be embedded within our team, access to the ecosystem and feedback on projects throughout the duration of the fellowship.

Application and Timeline

This call for applications is open until December 20, 2019. The selection process will commence in January 2020 with the first fellow of the Digital Rights and Inclusion Lab expected to resume in February 2020. Selection will be supported by an External Advisory Group made up of ecosystem leaders, including Alberto J. Cerda Silva (Ford Foundation), Anriette Esterhuysen (Association for Progressive Communications), John Dada (Fantsuam Foundation), Nnenna Nwakanma (World Wide Web Foundation), and Oreoluwa Somolu Lesi (Women’s Technology Empowerment Centre), who will help shape the program and work with the PIN team to review Fellowship applications.

Papa celebra registro de braceros indocumentados en parroquias de Italia

 Cache   

El papa Francisco celebró hoy el acuerdo al que han llegado la diócesis de San Severo en Apulia (sur de Italia) y su Ayuntamiento para registrar como residentes en algunas parroquias rurales a los braceros africanos indocumentados que trabajan durante el verano en el campo.

Papa celebra registro de braceros indocumentados en parroquias de Italia

Tras el rezo del Ángelus, el papa agradeció a la diócesis y al Ayuntamiento la firma el pasado 28 de octubre de este memorando de entendimiento, que "permitirá a los trabajadores de los llamados 'guetos de la Capitanata', en la zona de Foggia, obtener una domiciliación en las parroquias y la inscripción en el registro municipal".

Francisco alabó que este acuerdo, que no tiene precedentes en Italia, otorgará documentos de identidad y una residencia a estas personas y "les ofrecerá una nueva dignidad", además de permitirles "salir de una condición de irregularidad y explotación".

Cada verano, miles de inmigrantes procedentes de países como Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal y Gambia, pero también del este de Europa, trabajan en la recogida de cosecha en la zona de La Capitanata, en la provincia de Foggia, pero lo hacen en negro, porque son irregulares.

No pueden inscribirse como residentes en Italia ni pagar sus impuestos, ya que carecen de un domicilio fijo durante un periodo determinado de tiempo, tal y como exige la ley.

Para ellos, ser inscritos en los registros municipales como residentes en estas parroquias les permitirá poner en regla su situación, disfrutar de servicios sociales y tener la posibilidad de firmar un contrato de trabajo.

Uno de los principales impulsores del acuerdo ha sido el limosnero del papa, el cardenal Konrad Krajewski, que visitó a los inmigrantes indocumentados en esta zona el pasado septiembre, informa el portal de información vaticana Vatican News.

"Los braceros quieren pagar sus impuestos, ser reconocidos, trabajar dignamente, pero sin documentos no pueden", declaró Krajewski a los medios italianos durante su visita. EFE

Zien we Mbaye Diagne ooit nog in een Club Brugge-shirt? De Senegalees verbrodde een mirakel voor blauw-zwart door een strafschop te missen die hij afnam van Hans Vanaken. Wraakroepend. Degoutant. Egoïstisch en egocentrisch. Allemaal omdat zijn moeder...

La prensa belga se ensaña con jugador que desperdició un penalti ante el PSG

 Cache   

La prensa belga se ha mostrado muy crítica este jueves con el delantero del Brujas Mbaye Diagne, que se ha disculpado tras provocar un penalti ante el París Saint-Germain (PSG), empeñarse en tirarlo pese a no ser el especialista desde los once metros y lanzarlo a las manos del guardameta Keylor Navas.

'Inadmisible, repugnante, egoísta y egocéntrico', señala el diario flamenco 'Het Nieuwsblad', que pide que el entrenador del Brujas, Philippe Clement, que siente al delantero senegalés 'varios meses en la tribuna' tras fallar una pena máxima que habría dado el empate a los belgas sobre los franceses.

Diagne, que aún no ha marcado esta temporada en Liga de Campeones, provocó un penalti del brasileño Thiago Silva en el minuto 76 en el Parque de los Príncipes cuando el Brujas perdía 1-0, después de que el argentino Mauro Icardi hubiera adelantado al PSG en el minuto 21.

Después de que el árbitro señalara la pena máxima, el entrenador designó como tirador al capitán y especialista Hans Vanaken, pero Diagne ignoró las instrucciones del técnico, colocó el balón en el punto de penalti y efectuó un disparo flojo y a media altura que atrapó con facilidad el portero costarricense del PSG, ante el visible enfado de Clement.

'Un Diagne oportunista deja un regusto amargo a una bonita noche del Brujas', señala la televisión flamenca 'VRT' en su página web mientras que en la retransmisión en francés ofrecida por 'RTL Club' los comentaristas cargaron en directo también contra el capitán por no haber sabido imponer en el campo el criterio del técnico.

Con la derrota, el Brujas se coloca tercero en el Grupo A con dos puntos, por delante del Galatasaray (1) pero alejado del PSG (12) y del Real Madrid (7), lo que hace muy difícil que a falta de dos partidos pueda alcanzar la segunda plaza que da acceso a los octavos de final de Liga de Campeones.

En declaraciones a la prensa tras el encuentro, Diagne, de 28 años y cedido por el Galatasaray, atribuyó su decisión en la línea de penalti a una 'incomprensión' que deberían hablar 'en el vestuario'.

Tras la ducha, el delantero escribió un mensaje en las redes sociales en el que pedía disculpas por su actitud.

'He cometido un gran error. Primero quiero disculparme ante el entrenador, el capitán, todos los compañeros y los aficionados. Haré todo lo posible para darte lo que mereces. Lo siento, familia del Club Brujas', escribió Diagne.

Some African nations lead the world’s e-money businesses. Several are finding that leaving notes and coins behind is not only improving efficiency, safety and transparency, but it is also helping many people leave poverty behind. In 2018, the Senegalese government launched a payment digitization agenda to promote financial and social inclusion through tech.

Alerta: desafío racista

 Cache   

Es imperdonable a dónde nos ha traído Pedro Sánchez. Que el Vox neofranquista esté en las encuestas como tercera fuerza, que duplique escaños hasta lograr 46 es grave. No para los de izquierdas, para todo demócrata. Unidas Podemos tiene su responsabilidad en la falta de Gobierno. El saltarse la ley del independentismo catalán ceba a la ultraderecha. Pero el responsable de repetir elecciones el 10N y dar opción a un Gobierno del PP dirigido por Vox es Sánchez, asesorado por ese Iván Redondo que se dice sin ideología y siempre trabajó para el PP de ultras como García Albiol, el de Limpiemos Badalona (de extranjeros).

Aún está en nuestra mano minimizar las consecuencias del disparate al que Sánchez ha llevado al PSOE para alarma de votantes, simpatizantes y hasta responsables. La ciudadanía, y no él, sufriremos los efectos devastadores si los neofascistas alcanzan poder. Repiten la estrategia nazi de los años 40 de inventarse un enemigo. Entonces eran antisemitas, hoy antimigración. Nos lanzan un desafío racista. Reaccionemos juntos. Defender los derechos humanos es un mínimo básico. 

Vox engarza eslabones para vincular falsamente migrantes y criminalidad:

  • Su envío postal difama a ONGs al vincularlas con las mafias.
  • Las cuñas de radio asustan con una inexistente invasión islámica que ni la Iglesia católica avala. Los capitostes de Vox contradicen y critican al Papa que clama por la fraternidad universal. Haciéndose Francisco eco del mandamiento que el Cristo del Evangelio suma a los del Antiguo Testamento. ¿Dónde está el Amáos los unos a los otros? Vox tacharía a Jesús de buenista.

Denuncia a McDonald por vetar a niños marroquíes

Y, sin embargo, ¿qué persona de bien no se estremece al oír el WhatsApp en que Nur Al Houda, mediadora y maestra de Médicos del Mundo en el Centro la Purísima, denuncia que el McDonald de Melilla impidió comer a tres niños, de 11 y 12 años, a quienes ella compró hamburguesas, acusándoles de "delincuentes" sólo por ser marroquíes?

El audio se viralizó y dio lugar a entrevistas en que Al Houda ha contado cómo "peor aún que el trato a los niños fue que ellos lo vieran como normal, que se estén acostumbrando".

Más importante que la compasión es plantearnos ¿qué Estado de Derecho puede considerarse tal si esa discriminación no tiene sanción legal?

¿Logrará la denuncia de Nur Al Houda al responsable de McDonald un castigo ejemplar que impida que estos actos racistas se repitan?

¿Tendrá consecuencia penal la muerte de dos hermanos senegaleses, asfixiados en Yegen (Granada) por el monóxido de la precaria estufa con la que combatían las condiciones inhumanas en que les tenía Eduardo G.L. para el que, sin contrato y explotados, trabajaban?

¿Parará la Junta electoral los actos racistas de Vox ante centros de menores que debemos proteger no aunque sea extranjeros, sino justo porque migran solos, sin familia y son víctimas fáciles de desamparo y abuso? ¿Se perseguirán los mensajes de odio de Vox al menos tanto como a humoristas, titiriteros y tuiteros?

¿Se consentirá el archivo de la causa a guardiaciviles vinculados a la muerte de 14 hombres por dispararles pelotas de goma mientras nadaban al Tarajal (Ceuta)?  

¿Quién responde por la muerte de I.T., asfixiado a sus 18 años, en el centro tutelar Tierras de Oria e Almería, por su salvaje inmovilización?

Están pasando cosas muy graves. Atacan a niños. Muere gente. Nosotros no tendríamos la excusa de quienes dijeron que no sabían en qué acabaría el coser la estrella amarilla en la pechera de vecinos. Estamos a tiempo de parar este racismo. De construir concordia por nuestros hijos.

Pensad vuestro voto.

Votad en conciencia y libertad.

Pero no dejéis de votar el domingo.
