Mr. Gambari was dispatched to the region last week by Mr. Ban in response to the deteriorating situation in Myanmar which has seen a wave of peaceful protests in recent weeks and amid reports of the use of force against demonstrators. While in Myanmar, the Special Envoy met with Senior General Than Shwe and other members of the senior leadership, as well as leading democracy advocate and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.Today, he discussed developments in Myanmar with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Foreign Minister George Yeo of Singapore, both of whom expressed ASEAN’s strong support for Mr. Gambari’s mission, UN Spokesperson Michele Montas told reporters.He is now on his way back to New York, where he will brief the Secretary-General, the Security Council and the President of the General Assembly upon his return, she added. 3 October 2007Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Envoy Ibrahim Gambari held talks today in Singapore with the chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) after concluding a series of meetings with senior leaders in Myanmar.

ConocoPhillips Canada also announced it would cut about 200 jobs, mostly in its Calgary office, while Nexen said earlier this month it was slashing 400 jobs.Home prices in the region are expected to decline by three to six per cent, Levings said.Genworth says it has programs in place to support borrowers in financial trouble and prevent full-blown foreclosures.“It’s only a foreclosure that really matters because that’s when there’s an actual claim payment on our books,” Levings said.The Bank of Canada warned recently that the country’s housing market could be overvalued by as much as 30 per cent.However, Levings said he believes prices are only eight to 10 per cent overvalued on average, with figures higher in Toronto and Vancouver. by Alexandra Posadzki, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 24, 2015 12:05 pm MDT Mortgage insurer exercising ‘heightened vigilance’ in Alberta real estate market
The diary is titled ‘Bavaria and Austria Holiday’ and begins on July 24, 1936, after Hitler’s fame had reached a peak following the Berlin Olympic Games earlier that summer.The Girl Guide group stayed in the Bavarian Alps at Berchtesgaden, close to where Hitler had his Eagle’s Nest lair, and five days into the trip they met ruler who went on to order the deaths of six million Jews.The diary begins with the words: “A party of us started from Victoria at 8:20 p.m. We were a very jolly crowd of all ages.”The author, who also collected photos and mementoes of the trip, wrote: “At breakfast we were invited by the Hitler boys and girls to accompany them to see Hitler.”We were very bucked and said we would. We marched up with the Youth Movement and it took us 2 ½ hours… Adolf HitlerCredit:BridportAuctionRooms/BNPS Sadly we don’t know the name of the girl who wrote it or where she was from. It appears those from the group came from across the countryMike Dark A diary in which a British Girl Guide described Adolf Hitler as a Charlie Chaplin lookalike when she met him during a trip to Germany in 1936 has emerged for sale.The 100 typed pages documenting the youth hostelling excursion to Bavaria three years before the start of the Second World War read like an Enid Blyton adventure book, but with a chilling undercurrent.The girl, who is not named, described the Nazi dictator as a “little chap” who reminded her of the English comic actor Chaplin, who spoofed Hitler four years later in the film The Great Dictator.She also noted that he was ‘wonderful’ with the children and had a fascinating smile. “When we arrived at his residence we were all like grease-spots and found that we had four hours to wait.”However we possessed out souls in patience and waited. At last we entered his drive and then had to wait opposite Hitler for about ¼ hr. whilst the other people passed by.”He is a little chap – rather like Charlie Chaplin with his toothbrush moustache – with a very fascinating smile.”With children he is wonderful. He talks to them, accepts their posies and lets them stand by him while the people pass by saluting.”He only had four Storm Troopers guarding him and it all seemed very informal. When we passed he smiled sweetly and saluted several times.”One of the journalists nearby took our photographs and told Hitler who we were.” The girls meet the Hitler Youth. And this is possibly the authorCredit:BNPS The group of 47 youngsters was divided into patrols given colours and the unnamed author states that her patrol called ‘Orange’ was led by a ‘Captain’ – Miss Wright.The girl continued: “We consisted of Captain, her friend Miss Flood, Tubby (Olive Stokes) – so called because of her largeness – Marjorie Fricker, Betty Ainsworth, Ruth Adam and two girls from Wolverhampton and myself.”The detailed account mainly describes the day-to-day events, but also records the sights and the geography.The trip concludes with a humorous description of a trip to Papa Teuber’s Schloss for a campfire and singsong. The girls returned to England on August 8.The diary is being sold with an estimate of £200-300 on September 30. The diary is going under the hammer at the Bridport Auction Rooms in Dorset after it was consigned by a local collector.Mike Dark, from the saleroom, said: “Sadly we don’t know the name of the girl who wrote it or where she was from. It appears those from the group came from across the country.”It has also been corrected in pencil possibly by a teacher or Guide leader. For example, where the girl writes that Hitler only had four Storm Trooper guards, a pencil addition has been made that states ‘and two alsatian dogs’.”The diary is a jolly account full of their japes and scrapes and of course, their visit to see Hitler.”They appeared to be quite taken with the dictator even if they did compare him with a professional clown.”It’s interesting to wonder how those girls felt a few years later when that clown began a world war.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

It’s very difficult for the NHS to proceed with wholescale change if you’ve got people out on the streetsChris Hopson, NHS Providers Yesterday Mr Hopson, Chief Executive of NHS Providers, said architects of the schemes were so far failing to engage local communities, which “have the ability to sink plans they don’t support”.“It’s very difficult for the NHS to proceed with wholescale change if you’ve got people out on the streets marching with placards and banners and saying “don’t do this”,” he said.“Fundamentally you can’t make big changes to service provision without taking local people with you.”The plans follow an admission in May that the provider sector overspent by a historic £2.45 billion in the last financial year.The country has been divided into 44 areas, with each ordered to come up with a proposal that both closes the gap and caters for booming patient demand.So far the plans involve the closure of one of five major hospitals in South West London, an A&E unit in the North East of England, the loss of almost 600 beds in Devon and the possible closure of two A&E units in St Helens and West Lancashire.Mr Hopson yesterday said unit closures were too widely being regarded as a “silver bullet” to make the “overambitious and undeliverable” plans conform to tight budgets.“We have become obsessed by the money and not got the public engagement right,” he said.“We are also trying to do it too quickly.”But Sir Bruce Keogh, the NHS medical director, has this week there was “plenty of time” for the public to shape the changes.

Hospital closures planned to shore up NHS finances could be derailed if enough people take to the streets in protest, a health service chief has said.Chris Hopson, leader of England’s hospitals sector, said public unrest and opposition by local MPs could scupper so-called Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs), which are billed as crucial to the long-term viability of the health service.On Monday the respected think tank The King’s Fund heavily criticised health bosses for trying to organise the sweeping closure of hospitals and NHS units in secret, moves which it said could put lives at risk.
AMID THE ONGOING controversy over Liverpool star striker Luis Suarez having a nibble at Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic’s arm last weekend, plastic surgeons have said there are a growing number of severe bites being treated in Ireland ever year.Plastic surgeons are tending to on average 15 to 20 biting incidents a month according to the Irish Association of Plastic Surgeons (IAPS) with the vast majority of incidents linked to alcohol.New Year’s Day has been dubbed ‘New Ears Day’ in some emergency wards due to the jump in malicious bites at that time of year.“Bites and biting are no laughing matter,” IAPS president Dr Patricia Eadie warned.”The injuries we see are often truly horrific with entire ears bitten off, noses, finger tips and even lips.“Whereas we can often reattach a severed fingertip if it has been cut with a clean instrument like a knife the nature of a bite means that it’s almost always impossible to reattach the bitten body parts, leaving a very ugly injury.”Dr Eadie claimed that one injury can cost the public exchequer up to €10,000 to repair “as best as possible” with as many as four operations required in particularly vulnerable and visible areas, particularly the nose.She said that the survey which found that up to 200 biting incidents are treated in a year means that it would cost a total of €2 million a year.“Our members tell us that the vast majority of cases are directly related to alcohol where extremely inebriated people start fighting,” she said.“At this point rational thinking has long been forgotten about but people should remember that human bites can be more dangerous than most animal bites.”IAPS warned that germs in some human mouths can cause infections that make it harder to treat the injury.Dr Eadie added: “Our advice to those affected is to get to hospital as quickly as possible with any body parts they can find, wrapped in a damp cloth. Surgeons will then determine the best reconstruction possible.”Meanwhile Liverpool have until midday today to appeal the 10 game ban handed to Suarez by the English Football Association for last weekend’s biting incident.Read: Luis Suarez banned for 10 games for Ivanovic biteWatch: ‘It’s the street-fighter in him’ — Gary Neville on Luis SuarezRead: Sinking their teeth in: 7 more barbaric sporting bites
The iPhone 4 is a desirable piece of kit that you’d do well to hide when out in public. The cassette tape is a dead piece of technology that nobody wants, and hardly anybody buys anymore. Combine the two and you have a great retro case and stand, though.If you are old enough to remember, cassette tapes used to come in little clear plastic cases with a paper insert. The iDeck Tape peripheral puts both the tape and case to good use. The cassette is hollowed out allowing your iPhone to slide in and use it as a protective case. While the screen is still exposed, if you put it screen down it just looks like an old cassette tape.As for the tape case, it acts as a great iPhone stand that can also be folded shut to give an extra layer of protection to your iPhone. It’s also unlikely someone is going to see what looks to be an old tape and want to steal it.The dimensions of the case/stand combo are as follows:Cassette Tape Case: 11.7 x 6.2 x 1.1 cmCase Stand (closed): 12.7 x 7 x 2 cmCase Stand (used as stand): 16 x 16.5 x 2.8 cmThe only thing that is missing is a hole in the case for the dock connector meaning you need to take your iPhone out to use it. Still, at $18 it’s a bargain considering it has two functions and offers double the protection when not in use.Read more at Strapya World, via TokyoMango

Khairatabad: Around 50 per cent of commercial water connection meters are not in working condition in the city, according to the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB).With a view to increasing the revenue of the Water Board and ensure accountability for the use of the water by the commercial establishments in city, HMWSSB is planning to fix Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) units at over 40,000 commercial consumers water connections in city. Also Read – Hyderabad: Wall collapse in Kukatpally damages four cars Advertise With Us Speaking The Hans India, Vijay Kumar Reddy, Director and Revenue Officer, HMWSSB, said: “Out of the 40,000 commercial consumers water connections, around 50 per cent meters are not in working conditions. Some shop’s water connection meters are under repair or meters locked and remaining are the old meters. We will fix the AMR meters to all the commercial consumer water connections in a phased manner and expect a 10 to 15 percent of more revenue.” Also Read – With 61 feet high, Khairatabad Ganesh claimed to be tallest idol in India Advertise With Us At present, many commercial consumers have mechanical meters and around 50 per cent of meters are not in working conditions and they are all paying the average water bill, as they used to pay earlier. This way, the Water Board was unable to get the exact consumption of water by the commercial consumers in city. The Water Board has fixed the AMR meters to around 4,000 commercial consumers in some of the areas on pilot basis and got good revenue as per the usage of the water by them. Now they want to fix AMR meters to all the commercial consumer connections to increase the revenue as per the usage. Advertise With Us HMWSSB Managing Director Dana Kishore instructed officials to fix the AMR meters to all the commercial consumer connections at the expenses of the Board and later, it will be taken back from the consumers in installments. In 40,000 commercial consumer connections, around 80 per cent of the connections are half inch connections. In city, there are around 2,000 industrial water connections and around 86 per cent of industries have AMR meters. The remaining establishments will have new metres in a phased manner, said the Water Board official.

Aston Martin Will Build You Your Very Own Supervillain LairSony Crammed a 9-Inch Touchscreen Into a Single-DIN Car Stereo Stay on target Not everyone who’s interested in an EV is looking for something with the range or bevy of high-tech options that a Tesla or Chevy Volt features. Many of us just want a simple, eco-friendly way to putter back and forth to work.You’d be hard-pressed to find an EV (or any powered vehicle, for that matter) that’s simpler than the prototype being shown off by France’s XYT. Just how simple is it? Toyota says that it takes around 30,000 individual parts to build an average car today. It takes just 580 parts to build this slick sub-compact.As you’d expect it’s fairly bare-bones, but that’s kind of the point. This is a vehicle that’s built for the sort of driving the vast majority of folks do day in and day out — 60 miles or so to work and back. It’s also meant to be simple enough to put together that assembly doesn’t have to happen in a factory.XYT figures that its EV is so uncomplicated that a small, trained crew could assemble vehicles wherever they’re in demand. It’s straightforward, highly modular design also makes it easy to customize, and we’re not just talking exterior paint and interior trims. Want a pickup or cargo box for the back? No problem… it’s a simple swap.The company also doesn’t think you should have to trade your old vehicle in just so you can enjoy a few new features on a new model. XYT plans to offer upgrades to extend the lifespan of its vehicles. That’s sure to be a big selling point given that people are already hanging onto their cars nearly two years longer than they were a decade ago.Now, just because the car’s design has been simplified doesn’t mean XYT has taken shortcuts when it comes to safety. Clean Technica reports that the car has “passed all crash tests and [is] more than roadworthy.” That’s certainly good news, because while you might be willing to sacrifice a massive touchscreen console, you probably don’t want to skimp on things like seatbelts, airbags, and brakes.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
Are we really happy in the present? If so, then why do we take refuge in nostalgia? And if not, what are the reasons? One would find the answers to these queries in Suchita Malik’s latest novel ‘Scent of the Soil: A civil servant returns to his roots’. Her fourth novel was inaugurated in the august presence of Amitabh Kant (CEO NITI Ayog), Shashi Tharoor (prolific writer, politician), Pavan K Verma (former diplomat, socio-economic thinker, author), and Kapish Mehra (CEO Rupa Publications India) at Indian International Centre in the Capital recently. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf’Scent of the Soil’ gives an insight to the demanding nature of civil services; throwing light on how their regimented lives sometimes has adverse effects on the families of civil servants. Shubhojit Singh, a highly decorated civil servant is at the pinnacle of his career having won prestigious awards, however his personal life is in shambles as his wife had left him and he had become a stranger to his own children. He is lonely. When a sudden health crisis brings the whole family together, Subhojit is left reminiscing about his childhood – of times spent with his friends and of meaningful relationships. With just four years left for his retirement, Shubhojit decides to go back to his roots, to a life which is not defined by structures and where life is free and unencumbered. Will he succeed? Or will it prove to be an impulsive and hasty decision? Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe author said that the idea of writing this book came to her on a visit to Bhutan, when along with other bureaucrats and their wives, she accompanied her husband, and realised that the civil servants were missing out on most of the fun time due to their work. She also credited the title of her book to Pavan Verma’s chance observation on a casual discussion during the trip, when he used the phrase ‘khushbu of the soil.’The author was immensely praised by the guests of honour and the publisher, for weaving sensitivity in her novel and the magic in her words which had also given birth to her previous three novels – ‘Indian Memsahib’, ‘Memsahib’s Chronicles’ and ‘Women Extraordanaire’.

How to download, install and remove themes from Windows Store by Martin Brinkmann on April 14, 2017 in Windows – 4 commentsThe Windows 10 Creators Update ships with options to install desktop themes for the operating system from the built-in Windows Store.Microsoft introduced basic theme customization options when it released the Windows 7 operating system. These options allowed you to set custom backgrounds, colors, sounds and less than a handful of other customization options.This made it easy for anyone to change some display features of the operating system, but was far from the customization options that full themes brought to the table.The very same system, albeit with some minor improvements, is still active in Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system.Download themes from Windows StoreStarting with the Creators Update, Windows 10 users may download themes from Windows Store.Themes that Microsoft made were previously available on the Microsoft website for download. This changes with the release of the Creators Update, as themes are offered on the Store now.Unfortunately though, Microsoft decided to hide the themes category on the store. If you open the Windows Store on a system that runs the Creators Update, you won’t find themes listed there.The only option for now to access the themes category is to visit it from the Settings application.Right-click on the Windows desktop and select Personalize from the menu. This opens the Personalization category of the Settings application.Switch to themes on the left side when it opens.Locate the “apply a theme” section on the page that opens, and click on the “get more themes in the Store” link there. This opens the Windows Themes section on Windows Store.The Windows Themes section on Windows Store lists themes with thumbnails, names and user ratings. There is no option to download and install a theme directly from the overview page.Click on a theme that you are interested in to open its Windows Store page. Additional information, a description, more screenshots, compatibility information, or the author, are listed on the page.Click on the “get” button near the top to start the installation process. Please note that Windows 10 won’t switch to the new theme by default.You need to click on launch, or open the themes section of the Settings application again, to apply the newly downloaded theme.A click on the theme there makes it the system’s theme. You can switch to other themes listed there, for instance to go back to the default theme if you don’t like the newly downloaded theme that much.Removing Windows 10 themesSo how do you uninstall Windows 10 themes that you have downloaded this way? You have two options for that actually.First, you may delete any theme that is not used right now with a right-click on that theme and the selection of delete from the context menu that opens. Delete uninstalls the theme from the computer.The second option that you have is to remove the theme using the application uninstallation menu instead.Open the Settings application using Windows-I, and switch to Apps > Apps & Features. You can browse the alphabetically sorted list of installed apps and programs, use the search, or sort by installation date to find the installed theme.Simply select it afterwards, and then the uninstall button to delete it from the system. There is also a move option in case you run low on disk space and want to move all installed themes to another drive or partition of the computer.Now You: do you run default themes, create your own, or install third-party themes?SummaryArticle NameHow to download, install and remove themes from Windows StoreDescriptionThe Windows 10 Creators Update ships with options to install desktop themes for the operating system from the built-in Windows Store.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement

Unlike recent developments related to the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations, which increase the likelihood of developing breast cancer, the new gene is not expected to aid doctors in preventing cancer from developing but help predict whether the patient’s breast cancer is likely to spread and kill.Metadherin is “overrepresented” in 30 to 40 percent of the breast cancer patients studied, according to Yibin Kang, assistant professor of molecular biology at Princeton University. The gene makes tumor cells “sticky,” allowing them to adhere to blood vessels in various organs and penetrate surrounding tissue.

Campbell’s strike occurred between a couple more clear goal-scoring opportunities for Costa Rica. The 1-0 win, in which three or four goals were left on the field, looked as dominating a performance as Costa Rica has seen since the 2014 World Cup. Costa Rica derrotó a Estados Unidos gracias a un gol de @joel_campbell12 pic.twitter.com/VaEZrAWM3g— Futbol Centroamérica (@Futbolcentroame) October 14, 2015 It was the Ticos’ biggest stars who left their mark against the regional rival. Celso Borges orchestrated everything through the midfield and pressured the U.S. defense on a number of occasions. Johan Venegas and Marco Ureña also made plays that should give Ramírez some confidence in his offense going forward.Now with a 2-2 mark in his first four games as La Sele’s headman, Ramírez’s largest task will be to nail down the floorboards and ensure his team doesn’t trip up against lesser competition in World Cup qualifying play that begins against Haiti next month. Finding that level of consistency starts with the defense, as Ramírez employs five men on his backline. On Tuesday, the defense crowded passing lanes and suffocated an impotent U.S. attack that may see some huge changes coming up.Costa Rica’s star goalkeeper Keylor Navas was rarely tested by the U.S. front, though he made a goal-saving block in the first half on a header by Danny Williams off a free kick. He also nullified another potential header by the United States by intercepting the volley try in the box. Marco Ureña in a 2015 friendly against the United States. Jewel Samad/AFPU.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who may have coached his last game, was received with boos from his home crowd before the game. Klinsmann has done himself no favors off the field, but U.S. management will now be able to point to consecutive losses to Mexico and Costa Rica, the selection’s two most consistent foes in CONCACAF, as evidence of a downward-trending team in need of a change.But in a battle of two teams that again figure to take up a pair of CONCACAF’s four spots in the 2018 World Cup, Costa Rica looked like it was proving a point on Tuesday. Despite a bad loss at home to South Africa just five days before, Costa Rica found a win in its surrogate home of New Jersey, where the team has now played three matches in the past four months.Without captain Bryan Ruíz for the second straight game, it was Costa Rica’s trifecta of stars that led the dominating show against the U.S., turning in countless opportunities in the last 45 minutes. Campbell, who’s been criticized for his up and down play, was a creative force on the pitch and would have had two goals if his try in the 59th minute wasn’t tipped over the net by veteran U.S. goalie Tim Howard.Borges gave the Ticos their best shot at goal in the first half when he fed Cristian Gamboa on the wing, who crossed the ball back in front of a crowded net. There it found the feet of Venegas, but the ball ricocheted away before getting past Howard.Costa Rica started off slow in the first minutes, but the team seemed to turn the corner right before the half.Part of the sluggish start came when referee Walter López called two early fouls on defender Johnny Acosta, including a yellow card in the 17th minute. Costa Rican fans will forever remember — and never forgive — the CONCACAF official for the controversial penalty kick he awarded Mexico in the last minute of that team’s Gold Cup win over the Ticos in June.But this time, playing in the same state of that fatal penalty that booted the Ticos from the regional tournament, the Costa Ricans played well enough to take the game out of López’s hands.Costa Rica next plays Nov. 13 in qualifying play for the 2018 World Cup when it meets Haiti at home in San José.
