Hugo Alfredo Olivera Cartas, 27, was found dead in his car on 6 July near Apatzingán, a city in the western state of Michoacán.According to the non-governmental organization (NGO) Reporters Without Borders (RSF), Mr. Olivera received a telephone call summoning him to the scene of an accident. His body was found several hours later, with three gunshots to the head, and his office was later broken into.He was the editor of the Apatzingán-based El Día de Michoacán, a daily, and founded ADN, a local press agency. He was also a correspondent for Quadratin, a national agency.Irina Bokova, Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), called on Mexican authorities to find the perpetrators of the murder and end impunity.“After this latest attack on freedom of information, Mexican justice must be given the necessary means to take action,” she stressed.Some 200 journalists protested Mr. Olivera’s killing in Morelia, the capital of Michoacán, according to Quadratin. 16 July 2010The head of the United Nations agency mandated to protect the freedom of expression today condemned the murder of a Mexican journalist specializing in covering crime, bringing the total number of media professionals killed so far this year in the country to eight.
“In the past year, the number of signatures and ratifications of this legal instrument has more than doubled,” Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs Sha Zukang told a meeting of States Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which came into force in May 2008. “These results represent remarkable progress in a short period of time.”Nevertheless, a key challenge to the convention’s full implementation is the fact that fewer than half of all Member States have ratified it, he said.“Today, I call on the remaining Member States to become States Parties to this convention. Commitment to the convention from the full UN membership is a crucial first step toward bringing about widespread and lasting change.”“As you know, persons with disabilities are more likely to be poor and to lack access to equal social, health, educational and employment services,” he added. “It is the international community’s collective responsibility to address these inequalities.”“We must advocate for increased recognition and protection of their human rights, including the right to education. We must adapt our communities to their needs wherever possible. We must also change the hearts and minds of the public about the abilities of persons with disabilities.”Another key challenge was how to address disability needs during times of natural disaster and armed conflict. “We, the international community, need to ensure that in humanitarian operations, these persons receive prioritized access to aid. Reconstruction efforts should include accessible buildings and transportation systems,” he said.“The added costs to doing so are minimal, and they bring untold benefits – and hope – to persons with disabilities.”Navi Pillay, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, reflected on the same theme in a statement read out to the event on her behalf. She said an informal session held by States parties on this issue had been particularly timely.“This year has seen many humanitarian crises around the world; notably in the earthquakes in Haiti, China and Pakistan; the earthquake and tsunami in Chile; and more recently, the floods in Pakistan. Regrettably, human rights considerations are often neglected in such crises and their relevance questioned as an immediate priority in the planning and implementation of relief operations. It must not be so.”Reflecting that concern, the three-day meeting of States parties will include a panel discussion, organized in collaboration with the International Disability Alliance, on this issue.During their three-day meeting, States are also expected to renew and expand the size of the committee from 12 to 18 members – reflecting the increase in parties to the convention.The convention is the culmination of years of global efforts to ensure that the rights of the world’s persons with disabilities are guaranteed and protected. It asserts the rights to education, health, work, adequate living conditions, freedom of movement, freedom from exploitation and equal recognition before the law for persons with disabilities. 1 September 2010A senior United Nations official today called on all UN Member States to become party to the world body’s landmark convention protecting the rights of the estimated 650 million people with disabilities, which has already acquired 146 signatories and 90 ratifications.

Conceived and scheduled more than two years ago by the General Assembly, the 14–15 September High-level Dialogue follows a period of intense public attention to the cross-border movement of people, and a quickening pace of multilateral talks on international migration. Three per cent of the world’s population – or 191 million people – lived in a country other than the one in which they were born in 2005, with one third having moved from a developing country to one that is developed, one third moving from one developing nation to another, and another third originating in the developed world, according to an analysis of migration and development prepared by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (ESA).A greater share of workers moving to developed countries are college educated, and without migration the size of the labour force in the developed world will begin shrinking drastically beginning in 2010, the analysis said. A UN compilation of migration statistics from 228 countries and areas indicates that the United States leads the world as a host country, with 38 million migrants in 2005 constituting almost 13 per cent of its population. But the share of the population who are migrants is larger still in Australia (19.6 per cent in 2005) and Canada (18.9 per cent).In regional terms, however, Europe’s migrant population of 64 million in 2005 is almost 50 per cent greater than the 45 million in Northern America. Western Asia, with its oil producing nations, also hosts a considerable share of the world’s migrants, totaling 22 million in 2005.Nearly half of the world’s migrants now are women, the UN reports, and they outnumber male migrants in the developed countries.Remittances, even when used for consumption, stimulate demand and support local enterprises. As a result, the UN estimates that overall, remittances could have an impact equivalent to about half a trillion US dollars.Despite tensions in many receiving countries, more than 50 per cent of governments surveyed by the UN in 2005 expressed an intention to maintain incoming migrant flows at roughly the same level. Just about 20 per cent had as objective the reduction of incoming flows, but that share was down from 40 per cent in 1996. Six per cent of governments favoured higher levels of immigration in 2005.This week’s High-level Dialogue will focus on ways to maximize the development benefits of international migration and reduce difficulties.

Find out with our local weather coverage.Here are some of the stories that grabbed readers’ attention this week.Garbage flowing on Mount St. HelensKeeping garbage off public lands and convincing campers to pick up after themselves are perennial struggles for land management agencies, but local officials with the U.S. Forest Service say they’re seeing more trash now than at any point in recent memory.One area on the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, which is often used for primitive and free camping, was left in a galling state when Forest Service workers visited it in early September.“It was a disaster,” said Chelsea Muise, the monument’s recreation program manager.Several tents and a gazebo were left with piles of clothing trailing out of them. A bathroom area with a primitive toilet was left behind. Empty cans and food bags were piled around the site.The Forest Service allows up to 14 consecutive days of camping at one site. What workers found indicated whoever left the mess was there longer.

Dr. Dre made the official announcement this morning via Instagram. News Twitter Facebook Continuing the elongated marketing campaign that’s been grabbing headlines since late this past summer, the video announcement came in the form of a advertising spot with an actor presenting an apparent testimonial for a spoof pharmaceutical aimed a treating the fake disease “Atrox Rithimus.”Partway through the video, the actor reveals what pretty much everyone who’s been following the campaign had already figured out: Yes, Revival is actually the name of Eminem’s new album, and no, we’re not going to get any additional details on it before it comes out. (The latter piece of info came packaged with a bit of Eminem’s signature irreverent humor).Revival will hit store shelves and streaming services on Dec. 15.Miguel To Embark On North American TourRead more

US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is questioning L&T Infotech (LTI) for discrepancies on documentation and procedural lapses related to its customer, Apple.The discrepancy between the companies is based on the allegation on LTI for issuing letters of invitation to some of its employees to work on-site for Apple. A thorough investigation by USCIS has revealed that Apple had no knowledge of any kind of such letters being issued by them. Apple claimed that the letters were solely issued by LTI without any proper notice to them. Apple’s relationship with the IT outsourcing partner has been dismantled due to the mistrust between the companies and the legal proceedings.With strict actions against the Indian IT outsourcing company, Apple has ramped down all the projects with LTI to other outsourcing companies. Apple also told The Times of India that it will bar the IT company from its projects. John Moore/Getty ImagesAccording to reports, Sanjay Jalona, the CEO of LTI, has been trying hard to resolve the issues and has been unsuccessful in bringing out any fruitful result. LTI has about 400 employees working for Apple, providing testing, maintenance and development services. LTI had a contract value of about $25 million annually with Apple.Apple has many IT outsourcing partners in India. Some of the IT firms such as Infosys, TCS, Wipro, Cognizant, Exilant Technologies, and Quest Global play a vital role in the smooth usage and testing of the Apple software and products in India.USCIS and Apple have both denied giving any information about the proceedings on the issue.

Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said prosecutors will decide who is eligible for the program. Defendants facing charges of any violent crime cannot participate. Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said he sees many benefits to the program, like freeing up jail space and reducing recidivism.“To us this is a no-brainer,” said Gonzalez. “We operate the largest jail complex in the State of Texas – the third largest in the entire country – and, in fact, right now we are pretty much at capacity.”The program will also cut costs. “This helps saves some taxpayer dollars that would otherwise go into a costly incarceration system or a very costly prosecution system,” said Gonzalez. The Harris County District Attorney’s Office estimates $240,000 in yearly benefits from manual labor through community service.

Brain PowerdYoko Kanno’s score for Cowboy Bebop is one reason that series still stands as one of the classics of the medium, but she did great work all through the decade. Her music elevates Brain Powerd from an ordinary giant mecha anime into something a bit more stylish and compelling. The plot isn’t anything unique – in a post-apocalyptic Earth, pilots of giant robots must stop an alien spacecraft that has crash-landed from reactivating and wiping out what’s left of humanity. Mecha designs by the great Mamoru Nagano are spectacular, blurring the boundary between artificial and organic with grace, and they’re animated wonderfully. Some of the dialogue and character beats feel a little awkward, but the series is still very much worth watching.TrigunProduced by Madhouse, one of the most dependable names in action anime, Trigun adapted Yasuhiro Nightow’s popular manga into a brisk, compelling series starting in 1998. Protagonist Vash the Stampede is an iconic anime leading man – a mysterious amnesiac with a huge silver gun who has pledged never again to take a human life. That oath causes him all sorts of problems and results in a ton of property damage. What’s interesting about Trigun is how it takes inspiration from American Westerns and gives them a Japanese twist. Episodes can be somewhat formulaic, building to wild, superhuman gunfights, but they also tackle surprisingly complex moral dilemmas with grace and intelligence. The visual design isn’t as advanced as some other series on this list, but it’s still a very worthwhile watch. Revolutionary Girl UtenaFor a little while in the 90s, it looked like Utena was going to be the next iconic Japanese series to really make it big in the West. The unconventional teenage girl who decides to become a prince (yes, you read that right) introduced a new wave of genderfluidity into the medium, captivating an audience of receptive teen girls. When protagonist Utena enrolls at Ohtori Academy, she’s dropped head-first into the bizarre conflict over fellow student Anthy, known as the Rose Bride. Swordfights, intrigue and lesbian romance crash head-on into each other in this wild and unpredictable series, which addresses some complex social issues. The very European-styled visuals make it stand out even more. Stay on target ‘Cannon Busters’ Is The Black Anime We’ve Been Waiting…Casio G-SHOCK Unveils ‘Akira’-Inspired ‘Neo Tokyo̵… It’s kind of hard to imagine a time when anime was hard to find. Before Crunchyroll and other streaming services, to get your hands on Japanese animation you had to buy expensive VHS tapes at the mercy of whatever American company wanted to license them and subtitle or dub English over them. In the 80s, that was virtually impossible, but by the 1990s a real market had developed here, and it triggered an exciting period of advancement and experimentation.The art form of Anime flowered during the grunge years, and the shows and movies produced then have influenced thousands of creators. Come with us as we revisit 11 of the hottest nearly-forgotten animated joints of the decade.Nadia: The Secret Of Blue WaterThe 90s were prime creative time for Hayao Miyazaki, and he contributed the concept for this series directed by Hideaki Anno. The series is set in an alternate universe where the titular girl wants to return to her home in Africa and winds up entangled with Captain Nemo and his famous submarine as they battle the forces of Neo-Atlantis. This is early work from the studio Gainax and they lost a ton of money on the production, but the final product is very impressive. It’s an adventure tale at heart with plenty of traditional anime tropes but it also touches on dark topics like colonialism and the cost of war. One of the reasons it didn’t become more popular in the United States is that the VHS released by Streamline was dubbed atrociously badly. The show got a much better DVD and Blu-Ray release in 2014 that handled the voices much better. Irresponsible Captain TylorAnime has walked the “captain of a massive spaceship” ground hundreds of times, but the 90s were an era of twisting cliches into new forms. Irresponsible Captain Tylor recast the commanding officer of the battleship Soyokaze as a flighty, unpredictable young man instead of a grizzled veteran, and the show swung freely between goofball comedy and remarkable drama. It’s a great example of how producers of anime were starting to recognize the tropes they grew up with and refashion them into stuff that worked for a new, more literate generation of viewers. The show tapped into a very Japanese anxiety about becoming successful even if you’re not qualified to do so, as Tylor continues to “fail upwards” despite his attitude. The Big OHitting right at the end of our decade (the first episode aired in October of 1999), The Big O really distilled just about every advance in the medium into one stylish, fun show. Many 1990s anime took existing tropes and tweaked them, and this one runs with the “boy and his giant robot” into a very new direction. Roger Smith is a “negotiator” in Paradigm City, a metropolis that was struck by a mysterious wave of amnesia 40 years ago. It folds in a strong neo-noir sensibility – although there’s a ton of science fiction trappings, Roger is a detective at heart, using information as a weapon as he tries to get to the source of the amnesia. Animators Sunrise worked on Batman: The Animated Series, and you can definitely see some of that show’s unique visual flair at play here.BerserkA great example of how anime has changed in the last few decades is comparing the 1997 adaptation of ultra-violent manga Berserk with the more recent 2016 version. The new one is dependent on CGI for action scenes, looking clumsy and losing so much of the visceral action that the series is famous for. The 1997 take didn’t get to take any of those shortcuts, and it’s a far better product for it. Guts is a mercenary who swings a massive sword through all kinds of foes in grisly battles. The series worked because it committed to an epic storyline without wasting any time. The shonen anime stereotype of Dragon Ball Z-esque rising tension before fights gets thrown out the window here, with propulsive plotlines that hinge on solidly-built characters that feel real and rational. Susumu Hirasawa’s score is also worth noting. Slam DunkCompared to the comic book industry in the United States, the manga of Japan is both financially healthier and more interesting. While superheroes dominate on this side of the Pacific, Japanese comics cover a massive range of genres. One of the most popular series of the decade was Slam Dunk, the story of a lovestruck teen who joins the basketball team to impress a girl but realizes that he has a true love for the game itself. The anime adaptation premiered in 1993 and a few episodes were dubbed for American audiences, but most of it wasn’t aired here. It’s a vivid and gutsy series that replaces combat with sports without sacrificing any drama or tension. Serial Experiments LainOne of the best things about anime in the 1990s is that the otaku generation was starting to grow up, and they wanted to see something more than traditional stories for children. The result was ambitious productions like Serial Experiments Lain, which delivered a tone unlike anything else on the market. The story of a young Japanese girl who plugs into a global communications network and discovers that the boundary between the real and digital world is a little blurrier than she thinks, Lain was trippy, deep and remarkably compelling. The nature of identity in cyberspace was a new concept at that time, and the anime split its protagonist into a trio of avatars, each representing a different personification. The visual style is also sharp and well-considered, with animation doing a lot of heavy symbolic lifting. Ping-Pong ClubComedy in anime is sort of a tough art – it’s easy to have shows that pander to younger sensibilities, but in the 90s some studios started pushing outside those boundaries. 1995’s Ping-Pong Club, based on a manga series by Minoru Furuya, manages to be amusing for all ages. The series follows the misadventures of a middle school table tennis club composed of a number of ridiculously outsized personalities, from perverted leader Maeno to “panty master” Tanaka and hairy half-American Goro. One thing that’s interesting about Ping-Pong Club is that each episode is just 12 minutes long, more like an Adult Swim show than a typical anime series.Blue SeedBased on a popular manga series, Blue Seed didn’t get the exposure it deserved in the States, possibly because it has a sort of generic premise saved by awesome execution. Momiji Fujimiya is an ordinary high school student until she discovers that she’s the latest in a bloodline of princesses with the power to send legendary monsters called Aragami to their eternal sleep. She joins up with a government agency tasked with hunting them down to learn more about her family and the twin sister she never knew. Blue Seed is a smart, propulsive action series with some pretty great monster designs and a solid plot. Yes, it’s leavened by some crusty tropes (panty shots and the like), but it still holds up solidly today.Need more anime in your life head over to our section here.
