6 NOVEMBER 2018
SECURITY COUNCIL
8391ST MEETING (AM)

The Security Council, acting by consensus today, decided to renew for 12 months authorizations allowing international naval forces to join in the fight against piracy in the waters off the coast of Somalia.

Adopting resolution 2442 (2018) under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, the 15-member Council deplored all acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea off the Somali coast. While noting improvements in Somalia, it nevertheless recognized that piracy exacerbates instability in the country and stressed the need for a comprehensive, international response that also works to tackle the underlying causes of the phenomenon.

By the terms of the text, the Council encouraged the Parliament of Somalia to approve a draft coast guard law and urged the Somali authorities to continue efforts towards passing a comprehensive set of anti-piracy and maritime laws without further delay. It also called upon the authorities to make all efforts to bring to justice those who are using Somali territory to plan, facilitate or undertake criminal acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea, while calling upon Member States to assist Somalia ‑ at the request of Somali authorities and with notification to the Secretary-General ‑ to strengthen its maritime capacity.

Welcoming the initiative of the Seychelles to establish a court for piracy and maritime crime and the successful prosecution of piracy cases by that entity, the Council also recognized the need for States, international and regional organizations and other appropriate partners to share information for anti-piracy law enforcement purposes. In addition, it noted the need for those partners to keep under review the possibility of applying targeted sanctions against individuals or entities that plan, organize, facilitate, or illicitly finance or profit from piracy operations if they meet the listing criteria set out in paragraph 43 of resolution 2093 (2013). The Council also called upon all States to cooperate fully with the Somalia and Eritrea Monitoring Group.

By other terms of the resolution, the Council renewed its call upon States and regional organizations that are able to do so to join the fight against piracy and armed robbery off the coast of Somalia by deploying naval vessels, arms and military aircraft; providing basing and logistical support for counter-piracy forces; and seizing and disposing of boats, vessels, arms and other related equipment used in the commission of piracy-related crimes. It further encouraged the Government of Somalia to accede to the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime and urged all States to take appropriate actions under their domestic laws to prevent the illicit financing of piracy acts and the laundering of its proceeds.

The meeting began at 10:05 a.m. and ended at 10:07 a.m.

Resolution

The full text of resolution 2442 (2018) reads as follows:

“The Security Council,

“Recognizing that 2018 marks the tenth anniversary of resolution 1816 on the situation with respect to piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia and recalling its previous resolutions concerning the situation in Somalia, especially resolutions 1814 (2008), 1816 (2008), 1838 (2008), 1844 (2008), 1846 (2008), 1851 (2008), 1897 (2009), 1918 (2010), 1950 (2010), 1976 (2011), 2015 (2011), 2020 (2011), 2077 (2012) 2125 (2013), 2184 (2014), 2246 (2015), and 2316 (2016) and 2383 (2017) as well as the Statement of its President (S/PRST/2010/16) of 25 August 2010 and (S/PRST/2012/24) of 19 November 2012,

“Welcoming the report of the Secretary-General (S/2018/903), as requested by resolution 2383 (2017), on the implementation of that resolution and on the situation with respect to piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia,

“Reaffirming its respect for the sovereignty, territorial integrity, political independence, and unity of Somalia, including Somalia’s sovereign rights in accordance with international law, with respect to offshore natural resources, including fisheries,

“Noting that the joint counter-piracy efforts of States, regions, organizations, the maritime industry, the private sector, think tanks, and civil society have resulted in a steady decline in pirate attacks as well as hijackings since 2011, with no successful ship hijackings reported off the coast of Somalia since March 2017 however, recognizing the ongoing threat that resurgent piracy and armed robbery at sea poses to the prompt, safe, and effective delivery of humanitarian aid to Somalia and the region, to the safety of seafarers and other persons, to international navigation and the safety of commercial maritime routes, and to other ships, including fishing vessels operating in conformity with international law, commending countries that have deployed naval forces in the Gulf of Aden and the Somali Basin to dissuade piracy networks from carrying out acts of piracy,

“Welcoming the reinstatement of the Somali Maritime Security Coordination Committee (MSCC) meeting held from 9 to 10 July 2018 between the Federal Government of Somalia, Federal Member States and international partners which called for enhanced cooperation in strengthening Somalia’s maritime security as a key priority for both the Federal Government of Somalia and Federal Member States and urged the National Security Council to agree on a delineation of roles of the Somali maritime forces, as required by the Transition Plan and recognizing the importance of engaging in transition planning,

“Noting with concern that the continuing limited capacity and domestic legislation to facilitate the custody and prosecution of suspected pirates after their capture has hindered more robust international action against pirates off the coast of Somalia, which has led to pirates in many cases being released without facing justice, regardless of whether there is sufficient evidence to support prosecution, and reiterating that, consistent with the provisions of United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea concerning the repression of piracy, the 1988 Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts Against the Safety of Maritime Navigation provides for parties to create criminal offences, establish jurisdiction, and accept delivery of persons responsible for, or suspected of seizing, or exercising control over, a ship by force or threat thereof, or any other form of intimidation,

          Wawancara Andik Vermansah: Sujud Syukur di Warung Bakso      Cache   Translate Page      

Jakarta - Andik Vermansah begitu bahagia bisa dipanggil membela timnas Indonesia di Piala AFF 2018. Bahkan, mantan pemain Persebaya Surabaya itu langsung sujud syukur di sebuah warung bakso saat mendapat kabar gembira itu.

Kembali mendapat kesempatan memperkuat Timnas Indonesia memang sangat penting bagi Andik. Dia bergabung dengan Timnas Indonesia pada Sabtu (3/11/2018) atau hari kedua pemusatan latihan untuk Piala AFF 2018.

Cerita menarik mengiringi pemanggilan Andik Vermansah ke pemusatan latihan kali ini. Awalnya, dia tidak mendapatkan panggilan dari Bima Sakti yang menjadi pelatih kepala Timnas Indonesia.

Namun, Andik akhirnya masuk skuat menggantikan Saddil Ramdani yang sempat tersangkut masalah hukum.

Sujud syukur di warung bakso memang menjadi sebuah cerita tak terlupakan bagi Andik ketika akhirnya mendapatkan kesempatan kembali mengikuti pemusatan latihan Timnas Indonesia. Dia bisa kembali mengenakan seragam Merah Putih dengan lambang Garuda di dada.

Andik juga terus memperlihatkan aura kebahagiaan selama menjalani pemusatan latihan hingga bertolak ke Singapura pada Selasa (6/11/2018). Timnas Indonesia akan menghadapi Singapura di laga pertama Grup B Piala AFF 2018, Jumat (9/11/2018).

Sebagai pemain yang sudah merasakan atmosfer Piala AFF sejak 2012 dan mencicipi pengalaman terbaik pada 2016, Andik Vermansah bertekad membawa Timnas Indonesia juara pada tahun ini.

Berikut wawancara Bola.com dengan Andik Vermansah:

Motivasi dan Sujud Syukur

Pemain Timnas Indonesia, Andik Vermansah, saat ditemui di Hotel Grand Zuri, Jawa Barat, Minggu (4/11). Pemusatan latihan Timnas ini merupakan persiapan jelang Piala AFF 2018. (Bola.com/M Iqbal Ichsan)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Bagaimana motivasi Andik menghadapi Piala AFF 2018?

Jujur saja entah mengapa saya memang sangat berharap bisa masuk dalam skuat Indonesia di Piala AFF 2018. Saya benar-benar melakukan persiapan sejak jauh-jauh hari.

Sebelumnya mungkin sudah ada anggapan saya adalah langganan tim nasional, tapi entah mengapa di Piala AFF kali ini saya begitu menggebu-gebu bisa ikut bergabung.

Saya belum pernah juara. Prestasi terbaik saat final dua tahun lalu. Saat itu saya juga terkena musibah di pertandingan final dan merasa menyesal. Saya tetap bersyukur dan menganggap itu adalah cobaan untuk saya.

Ada kabar Andik kecewa karena awalnya tidak dipanggil mengikuti pemusatan latihan untuk Piala AFF 2018. Boleh diceritakan secara lengkap kronologisnya?

Saya sudah menunggu panggilan sejak Indonesia menghadapi Mauritius. Setelah Asian Games saya mengetahui ada persiapan untuk AFF. Saya benar-benar ingin masuk, tapi ternyata tidak dipanggil saat uji coba waktu itu. Menghadapi Myanmar saya tidak dipanggil. Sempat putus asa dan berpikir masa depan saya sudah habis. Saya benar-benar sulit mempercayainya.

Alhamdulillah, ketika menghadapi Hong Kong ada surat panggilan yang membuat saya kembali bergairah. Dua hari sebelumnya, saya ada di Kedah dan pemanggilan itu membuat saya merasa sangat bangga. Padahal kalau dipikir-pikir dulu tidak sampai seperti itu karena sudah biasa dipanggil Timnas Indonesia.

Coach Bima Sakti menghubungi saya untuk pertandingan menghadapi Hong Kong dan rasanya sangat senang sekali. Bahkan saya mendapat kesempatan bermain dan saya merasakan berat badan saya naik di pertandingan itu.

Setelah menghadapi Hong Kong, motivasi saya menjadi lebih besar. Saya sempat melihat berita kalau pelatih Hong Kong mengatakan saya pemain yang bagus dan berbahaya. Komentar itu menambah motivasi saya. Jujur komentar-komentar seperti itu menambah motivasi dan saya berlatih sungguh-sungguh di rumah.

Ketika sudah semakin dekat dengan persiapan terakhir Piala AFF, saya sampai bertanya dengan beberapa teman-teman soal kapan mulai berlatih. Lalu saya dengar Evan Dimas mengatakan tanggal 1 November, dan saat itu saya belum menerima panggilan. Saya sudah berpikir itu artinya saya tidak jadi dipanggil.

Sedih rasanya, bukan kesal. Namun, saya profesional, jadi harus menerima meskipun jujur saja merasa sedih. Bahkan saya sudah diminta kembali ke Kedah untuk berlatih. Tapi saya memutuskan untuk menahan keberangkatan saya karena hati masih gelisah. Setiap bangun tidur saya melihat ponsel karena berharap ada panggilan.

Panggilan tak kunjung datang, dan saya mulai berpikir kembali ke Kedah. Akhirnya saya ingat sebelum melakukan Salat Jumat, saya makan bakso bersama teman-teman. Saat itu Coach Bima menghubungi saya dan bergetar hati saya. Ketika dia bertanya apakah saya siap 100 persen, saya jawab siap.

 

Saya langsung sujud syukur di warung bakso tersebut. Saya hampir menangis. Saya merasa bangga sekali. Ini seperti pertama kali saya masuk tim nasional. Saya peluk semua teman saya waktu itu. Saya lepas sandal saya dan langsung sujud syukur di situ. Tidak tahu kenapa, tapi saya bangga sekali tahun ini bisa masuk Timnas Indonesia.

 

 

Merasa sangat bahagia dan bersyukur dengan panggilan ini, apakah ada nazar atau janji untuk Piala AFF kali ini?

Jujur tidak ada dan saya tidak mau bicara panjang lebar soal hal seperti ini. Saya hanya ingin memperlihatkan permainan terbaik di lapangan. Indonesia sudah lama tidak merasakan juara, dan saya ingin memberikan yang terbaik.

Momen yang paling sulit dilupakan di Piala AFF?

Kalau momen terbaik adalah gol tendangan bebas di Kuala Lumpur pada Piala AFF 2012. Jujur memang ada faktor keberuntungan, tapi saya memang niat melakukan umpan silang dengan tenaga yang besar. Alhamdulillah langsung masuk ke gawang.

Itu menjadi momen terbaik saya karena sebelumnya Indonesia tidak pernah menang menghadapi Singapura. Jelas itu adalah momen terbaik selain Piala AFF 2016 karena saat itu saya bisa bermain terus dalam setiap pertandingan hingga final leg pertama.

Kalau momen pahit yang sulit dilupakan adalah detik-detik nasib kami tergantung dengan Filipina dan bertanding menghadapi Singapura di babak grup Piala AFF 2016. Alhamdulillah saya bisa mencetak gol dan bisa mendapatkan penghargaan gol terbaik dari laga itu. Saya ingin mengulanginya lagi jika memang diberikan kesempatan.

 

Belajar dari Kesuksesan dan Kegagalan

Begitu bahagia masuk skuat Garuda di Piala AFF 2018, seperti apa sebenarnya kerinduan Andik bergabung Timnas Indonesia?

Kalau bisa masuk Timnas Indonesia, itu artinya saya bisa membuat keluarga bangga. Saya juga ingin memiliki rekor yang bagus bersama Timnas Indonesia. Saya merasa sangat bangga bisa masuk Timnas Indonesia dan keluarga saya selalu berdoa untuk itu. Rasanya semua keluarga saya bisa merasakan kegembiraan ketika saya bisa bergabung dengan Timnas Indonesia.

Saya juga merindukan atmosfer suporter Indonesia. Saya sudah lama tidak merasakannya karena kami jarang bermain di kandang jika bukan laga semifinal dan final. Sekarang kami bisa menggelar laga kandang dan itu menguntungkan buat saya.

 

Piala AFF 2016 masih menjadi pencapaian terbaik Andik di level Asia Tenggara meski sempat mengalami cedera. Pengalaman berharga apa yang bisa dipetik untuk menjadi modal di Piala AFF 2018?

Saya jujur bingung mau bicara apa soal ini. Dua tahun lalu kami sampai ke final, dan tentu saya ingin mengulanginya lagi pada tahun ini.

Saya tetap ingin merasakan semua yang saya alami pada 2016. Saat itu saya selalu menjadi pemain inti dan berpikir menang di setiap pertandingan tanpa memikirkan laga selanjutnya dulu.

Seberapa pahit pengalaman di Piala AFF 2016 buat Andik?

Saya sangat sedih. Saya ke luar lapangan dengan dukungan penonton di tribune stadion yang bersorak, "Andik bangun". Itu rasanya tak bisa diungkapkan dengan kata-kata. Kalau saya bisa langsung sembuh, saya pasti akan langsung masuk lapangan lagi. Namun, saya tidak bisa memaksakan karena ligamen saya sobek.

Keinginan saya untuk segera kembali sangat besar. Begitu pertandingan selesai saya langsung berkomunikasi dengan dokter tim. Saya ingin tahu seberapa buruk cedera saya karena masih ada keinginan bermain di final kedua. Saya pun langsung ke Jakarta untuk melakukan pemeriksaan lebih lanjut dengan harapan bisa ikut di pertandingan kedua.

 

 

Keyakinan Juara dan Memetakan Kekuatan Lawan

Apakah Andik ragu bisa juara pada Piala AFF 2018 setelah Indonesia berulang kali hanya menjadi runner-up?

Jujur secara pribadi saya ingin semua pemain merasa membara untuk bisa menjadi juara AFF seperti yang sedang saya rasakan. Semoga semua teman-teman memiliki tekad seperti itu. Dengan begitu tentu tidak ada keraguan.

Juara bisa membawa nama baik ke depannya, dan para pemain bisa saja dilirik untuk bermain di kompetisi Asia yang lebih tinggi seperti di Jepang pada musim depan. Tidak ada yang tahu apa yang terjadi selanjutnya.

Namun, ini adalah sebuah kesempatan bagi para pemain untuk memperlihatkan kualitas, terutama bagi mereka yang belum pernah bermain di Piala AFF dan mengejar kesempatan berkembang di kemudian hari. 

 

Timnas Indonesia untuk Piala AFF 2018 ramai dengan pemain muda. Berdasarkan pengalaman, Andik merasa tim ini bisa lebih kuat daripada tim-tim sebelumnya?

Jujur saya merasa jauh lebih yakin bersama tim ini, apalagi para pemain muda itu sebelumnya melakukan persiapan panjang untuk SEA Games dan Asian Games. Jadi mereka sudah kompak dan kehadiran kami para pemain senior hanya untuk menambah kekuatan.

Semoga bersama tim ini kami bisa menjadi juara. Saya merasa yakin tim ini memiliki semangat yang tinggi dan kemampuan yang sangat bagus.

Pertandingan pertama nanti akan sangat penting. Saya meminta kepada masyarakat Indonesia yang sempat merasakan tren bersama Timnas Indonesia U-16 dan U-19, agar tidak melupakan tim senior. Inilah tim yang utama. Kami butuh suporter juga memberikan dukungan dengan keikhlasan dan keyakinan terhadap kami.

Melihat rival yang harus dihadapi di Piala AFF 2018, bagaimana Andik melihat kekuatan masing-masing tim?

Selama saya bermain di Malaysia, saya cukup sering bertemu pemain asal Singapura. Saya juga beberapa kali bertemu Singapura, termasuk di SEA Games. Pemain mereka mungkin hanya itu dan itu lagi, tapi kekompakan mereka nomor satu. Mereka kompak naik dan turun bersama di lapangan, meski secara individu kemampuan pemain Indonesia bisa lebih baik.

Filipina memiliki pemain naturalisasi yang bagus, tapi saya tidak merasa takut karena mereka kurang menjiwai semangat nasionalisme. Mereka sangat berbeda dengan Indonesia. Pemain naturalisasi mereka bagus, tapi jiwa nasionalisme mereka kurang menyokong sehingga mereka mudah menyerah.

Bicara soal Timor Leste, nah tim ini pasti bermain keras menghadapi Indonesia. Intinya pemain Indonesia jangan sampai terpancing karena pasti akan naik emosinya. Saya sering bertemu dengan pemain dari Timor Leste dan banyak yang akhirnya suka memancing perkelahian.

Sementara untuk Thailand, kita semua sudah tahu bagaimana kualitas mereka. Namun, kami tidak takut menghadapi Thailand.

Justru sebenarnya Vietnam yang saya waspadai. Ketimbang Thailand, saya lebih khawatir menghadapi Vietnam. Mungkin ada yang bilang grup kami adalah grup yang berbahaya, tapi Vietnam di grup lain juga sangat kuat.

Mereka memiliki komponen yang bagus di dalam tim saat ini. Mereka juga pasti punya motivasi kuat jika menghadapi Indonesia karena ketika semifinal dua tahun lalu kami serang terus sampai disebut kami menyerang 7 hari 7 malam. Secara kualitas pemain mereka lebih baik dari kami, tapi soal jiwa semangat nasionalisme, kami lebih unggul.

          Kommentar zu Costa Atlantica und Costa Mediterranea gehen an neue, chinesische Reederei von Olaf      Cache   Translate Page      
Naja, es war ja irgendwie damit zu rechnen, dass nach der Atlantica auch bald mal die Mediterranea aus der Costaflotte verschwindet. Schade um das wohl beliebteste Stammkundenschiff der Flotte. Ich werde im Jänner 2020 mit der Medi noch auf Mauritius/Seychellen und Co unterwegs sein und mich dann von diesem Schiff, mit der ich alleine 9 x unterwegs war verabschieden ... Somit verliert Costa ein weiteres "Charme"-Schiff und hat nun nur mehr Luminosa und Deliziosa, die aufgrund ihrer perfekten Größe so charmant sind.

          Басёна: НУ-КА МЕЧИ СТАКАНЫ НА СТОЛ: 10 БОКАЛОВ НА ВСЕ СЛУЧАИ ЖИЗНИ      Cache   Translate Page      

В зависимости от формы и размера бокала восприятие напитков меняется, уверяют знатоки. Ведь это не просто посуда, от бокала зависит полнота восприятия букета напитка, а также его воздействие на определенную группу вкусовых рецепторов. «Вокруг света» рассказывает об основных видах питейной посуды, которая поможет добиться единства формы и содержания.

Граппаглас

06322359.jpg

Как и следует из названия, этот бокал предназначен для традиционного итальянского напитка — граппы. Благодаря тонкой ножке, расширяющемуся основанию и узкому горлышку по форме бокал напоминает пузатый тюльпан.

Поскольку граппу делают из отходов от производства вина, она долгое время считалась напитком для бедных, что не отражалось на ее популярности. Из граппагласа ее пьют охлажденной, заполняя бокал на три четверти, а для того чтобы насладиться вкусовой палитрой напитка, его нужно недолго подержать во рту.

Маргарита

GettyImages-505632560.jpg

Да, латиноамериканский коктейль «Маргарита» настолько популярен, что у него есть собственный бокал, по форме напоминающий перевернутый верх груши. Сейчас бокал используется и для подачи других замороженных коктейлей. Края нередко натирают лаймом и украшают сахарной или соленой каймой.

Харрикейн

13508688.jpg

Этот бокал отличается большим объемом, а по форме напоминает керосиновую лампу. Чаще всего его используют для подачи «тропических» коктейлей. Объем харрикейна позволяет не просто подать напиток, но еще и изобретательно его украсить. В барах в таких бокалах чаще всего подают коктейли «Голубые Гавайи», пинаколада и «Сингапурский слинг».

Коктейльный бокал

13573016.jpg

 

Коктейльный бокал многим знаком по фильмам, в которых герои пьют из него мартини. Бокал предназначен для подачи именно коктейлей, а не чистых алкогольных напитков. Кусочки льда в него не кладутся, при этом бокал охлаждают перед использованием, а треугольная форма и тонкая ножка позволяют содержимому оставаться холодным.

Флейта

GettyImages-614773310.jpg

Бокал вытянутой формы чаще всего используется для шампанского, прочих игристых вин и коктейлей на их основе. Фужер заполняют на две трети, а напиток наливают в два приема, так как пене от игристого нужно дать время осесть. Особая форма бокала позволяет пузырькам красиво струиться вверх.

Снифтер

GettyImages-644920981.jpg

Широкий бокал на небольшой ножке подойдет для виски, бренди, коньяка, арманьяка и кальвадоса. Благодаря свой форме он дает возможность в полной мере ощутить аромат напитка: неслучайно название бокала произошло от английского sniff — «нюхать», «вдыхать». Кроме того, держащая снифтер рука согревает содержимое, отчего напиток только выиграет. Снифтер принято наполнять примерно на четверть, до самой широкой части.

Чаша

GettyImages-613495468.jpg

По одной из наиболее пикантных версий, этот фужер повторяет форму груди королевы Франции Марии Антуанетты. Особенно популярны такие бокалы были в XX веке, когда на вечерниках из них выстраивали целые пирамиды. И хотя фужеры удобно держать, в настоящее время они используются все реже, поскольку пузырьки из них испаряются быстро, а напитки нагреваются.

Бокал для белого вина

GettyImages-957725296.jpg

Бокалы для белого вина не всегда легко отличить от посуды для красного. Как правило, они имеют меньший объем, вытянутую тюльпанообразную форму и более высокую ножку, что позволяет вину дольше оставаться холодным. Когда пьешь из такого бокала, голову приходится слегка закидывать назад, что позволяет напитку попадать на рецепторы, отвечающие за восприятие кислого.

Бокал для красного вина

GettyImages-668253886.jpg

Бокалы для красного вина по форме напоминают округлые тюльпаны или яблоки, широкие у основания. Такая форма позволяет вину воздействовать на рецепторы, отвечающие за восприятие сладкого, а также дает возможность лучше почувствовать аромат напитка. Из таких бокалов пьют бургундские вина, каберне, зинфандель, пино нуар, бордо и другие. При этом красные вина обычно подаются слегка охлажденными: их надо поставить в холодильник примерно за час до прихода гостей.

Бокал для ирландского кофе

GettyImages-651969572.jpg

Тюльпанообразный бокал из жаростойкого стекла с ручкой подходит как для ирландского кофе и кофейных напитков со сливками и мороженным, так и для грога или глинтвейна. Его удобно держать, при этом нельзя обжечься, каким бы горячим ни было содержимое.

          Hiding secret messages in whale song      Cache   Translate Page      

Most military underwater surveillance systems filter out whale calls along with other ambient ocean noise. This inspired researchers from China's Tianjin University to create a form of "bio-inspired steganography" in which recordings of whale songs can be edited to contain secret messages and then electronically transmitted underwater. From Newsweek:

In research published in IEEE Communication Magazine, the team said there are two ways to hide signals in whale pulses—changing the signal to include encrypted information or making the signal weaker.

The former is problematic because it would stand out from other naturally occurring signals, Jiang told SCMP. However, the second method holds promise. Researchers could build a coding system around the whale sounds. They could then edit whale sounds so they are indistinguishable from other whale calls. When they are received by the coding system, they can be deciphered. The main drawback for this approach is that it would be difficult to send a message over a long distance.
