At UN publishing open house participants hail greater efficiency in printing

18 April 2007Scores of diplomats, United Nations officials, staff members and other guests today viewed the world body’s printing facilities up close at an open house which showcased new technology being used to boost output while cutting costs. “The new four-color press is the latest example of how our Department is taking the lead in optimizing efficiency through excellence in human resources and technological innovation,” said Yohannes Mengesha, Assistant Secretary-General in the Department for General Assembly and Conference Management (DGACM).He made his comments as guests toured the basement facility where thousands of UN documents, books and other materials are printed each year, often with a very tight deadline and in the six official languages.The four-color offset press, which has been running since late last year, has already produced numerous periodicals, such as the UN Police Magazine, in less than half the time it would have taken using the two-colour offset press it replaced.Yuval Elbaz, an expert in pre-press, explained that with the older model, it took more time because the paper had to be repositioned to run through the press. The new system is much more cost-effective – “and fast,” he said, adding that there was also far less waste of paper.“The four-color press gives us the capability to work efficiently and to produce high-quality, commercial-grade offset printing,” said Officer-in-Charge William Hamill. The innovative approach being employed by the Publishing Section comes as part of a broader effort to improve management being led by a special unit of the UN’s Office for Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) set up for this purpose.“It has been a collaborative effort, and they are doing a great job,” said Paulette Woolf, OIOS Deputy Director of the Internal Management Consulting Services, of her counterparts in DGACM. “The more the message gets out, the more clients will use the in-house printing services” because of their efficiency, she added.John Donnolly, a management consultant with OIOS who led the project, said the publishing team was “really motivated” to streamline their work.Officials from the UN’s Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions (ACABQ) – a powerful budget watchdog panel – hailed the event as an opportunity to witness resources in action.“We always see how much it costs [for the UN to print its products] but we never see what is going on here,” said ACABQ Member Collen V. Kelapile, who is more accustomed to reviewing budgets on paper than visiting the services they finance. “With this view,” he added as he walked through the large-scale basement printing operation, “we see that there is a great deal of work being accomplished.”His colleague on the ACABQ, Susan McLurg, Minister Counsellor of the United States Mission to the UN, echoed this view. “It is interesting to see what the UN is capable of producing in-house,” she said. “It is very impressive.”Located three levels down at the UN Headquarters in New York, the world body’s printing and distribution specialists work 24 hours each day to ensure that documents, publications and other materials reach all UN clients as quickly as possible. Officials predict that the four-color press will pay for itself within a year. read more

Top UN envoy meets with senior Iraqi religious officials in Najaf

While in Najaf yesterday, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative Staffan de Mistura – who also heads the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) – also visited the Shrine of Imam Ali. In a two-hour meeting, the Special Representative informed Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Sistani of UNAMI’s scaled-up political and humanitarian activities. In response to Mr. de Mistura’s request for advice on what the UN can do to help the war-torn nation tackle its challenges, Grand Ayatollah Sistani underscored “the importance of Iraqi national reconciliation, the usefulness of increased UN presence and assistance, as well as more frequent contacts with the Marja-iya, and above all the need for the Iraqi people to be able to participate in fair, free and inclusive elections,” according to a press release issued by the Mission. Additionally, the Grand Ayatollah emphasized the need for fairness and transparency in all election-related activities. During his talks with Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammed Said Al-Hakim, the Special Representative voiced the UN’s appreciation for last February’s decision by Shiite leader Sayyed Muqtada al-Sadr to continue the suspension of Jaysh Al Mehdi’s activities, also known as the Mahdi Army, which is key to promoting stability. Mr. de Mistura also held meetings in Najaf with Grand Ayatollah Sheik Mohammad Al-Yacoubi, Sayyed Hazim Al-Araji of the office of Al-Shahid Al-Sadr, the Governor of Al Najaf, Asa’ad Abu Kalal and others. At the end of his visit to Najaf – which was coordinated with Iraqi authorities – the Special Representative expressed the UN’s commitment for “increased engagement” in both the city and governorate of Najaf as well as all of Iraq. 12 March 2008The senior United Nations envoy to Iraq has met with Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Sistani and other senior religious officials in the holy city of Najaf, south of the capital Baghdad. read more

Tembec takeover could be in jeopardy after two largest shareholders oppose deal

by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 18, 2017 9:53 am MDT Last Updated Jul 18, 2017 at 1:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MONTREAL – The takeover of forestry company Tembec could be in jeopardy after the company’s second-largest shareholder said Tuesday it will vote against the US$807-million friendly offer by Rayonier Advanced Materials.Restructuring Capital Associates (RCA), which owns 17.1 per cent of Tembec’s stock, said it will join Oaktree Capital Management in opposing the transaction at a vote July 27.Together, the company’s two largest shareholders control 37 per cent of Tembec (TSX:TMB) shares.The takeover requires support by a two-thirds majority vote of shareholders.RCA said it supports the proposed merger with Rayonier Advanced Materials. But it added that the Florida company must respond more appropriately to several complaints from Oaktree including that shareholders aren’t receiving a fair price and that Rayonier Advanced Materials can sweeten the offer. Rayonier Advanced Materials dismissed such concerns Monday as “misleading.”“The strategic merit of this unique combination can improve profitability exponentially and Oaktree makes a compelling case that Rayonier can and should improve its offer,” RCA founder James Bennett said in a statement Tuesday.A spokeswoman for Rayonier Advanced Materials (NYSE:RYAN) and Tembec said the companies wouldn’t comment on any particular shareholder’s voting intentions before next week’s vote.On Monday, it said it stood by its offer of $4.05 in cash or 0.2302 of a share in Rayonier Advanced Materials, subject to a cap on the total amount of cash and shares that will be issued.The friendly offer is 37 per cent above where Tembec’s shares traded before the proposal, but it is less than the $4.25 the shares traded for in afternoon trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Space community underlines need for stronger cooperation as UN conference in Dubai

UN Office for Outer Space Affairs Director Simonetta Di Pippo reflects on the High Level Forum on Space as a Driver for Socio-Economic Sustainable Development, saying that the event was held at the right moment for the international community. She also highlights that space activities improve day to day life.The Dubai Declaration emphasized that strengthening socio-economic development will require an integrated approach among the space industry and other sectors such as environment and climate change, health, water and information and communication technology (ICT).The document also underlined the need to increase the number of women in the space industry and to strengthen young people’s involvement in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).The High Level Forum brought together heads of space agencies, astronauts, academics, government officials, and representatives from the private sector and non-governmental organizations.It is the first of three such events leading up to the 50th anniversary of the first UN Conference on the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space.The conference, known as UNISPACE I, was held in August 1968, and raised global awareness about the potential benefits of outer space for humanity. UNISPACE+50 will be commemorated in June 2018. More than 100 participants attended the first High Level Forum on Space as a Driver for Socio-economic Sustainable Development, organized by the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) together with the Government of the United Arab Emirates.The Forum centred on aspects of space exploration in the areas of economy, society, accessibility and diplomacy, leading to the adoption of an outcome document known as the Dubai Declaration.Speaking at the closing ceremony, UNOOSA Director Simonetta Di Pippo said delegations had produced recommendations to address key developments that have an impact on outer space activities such as new technologies and new business models.“This Declaration and what we have learned at this Forum have provided us with an understanding of how we should move forward in utilizing space for development, on the need to get open access to space for an increasing number of countries, and in assisting States to attain the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),” she said. read more

Congress votes going in BJPs account Foul play suspected in Keralas Thiruvananthapuram

first_imgElection staff prepare Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) machines and Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) ahead of India’s general election at a warehouse in Ahmedabad, March 6, 2019.Reuters file [Representational Image]As Kerala entered the polling session on Tuesday, April 23, for the third phase of the Lok Sabha 2019 elections, several Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) malfunctions and glitches have been reported across the state.Polling was delayed at several booths due to the EVM malfunctions and it is reported that voting was stopped at a polling station in Chowara booth of Thiruvananthapuram constituency after the voters complained of a malfunction in the system.According to the voters, when they had cast their vote for the Congress, instead of the Congress hand symbol Bharatiya Janata Party’s lotus symbol was lit up. This malfunction comes from the state capital where the Congress candidate Shashi Tharoor has locked horns with former Mizoram governor and BJP candidate Kummanam Rajashekharan and Communist Party of India (CPI) candidate C Divakaran.Many of the voters have alleged that it is the saffron party’s play to ensure a win in the capital city as it has always been a tough spot for them and has asked for a re-voting considering a foul play. However, the malfunctions were reported in the Chowara polling booth after 76 voters had cast their votes and the Election Commission has ordered to replace the EVM with a new one.Similar incidents were reported from several constituencies across the state due to EVM issues. The polling was delayed at 20 booths in Kasaragod, 3 in Idukki, 2 in Ernakulam among other constituencies including Kollam and Kannur.Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan has also slammed the EC for the widespread EVM issues reported from the state. He said that there were EVM malfunctions at his own home booth in Kannur and that the EC had not taken adequate measures for the proper working of the EVM machines.last_img read more

4 reasons IBM bought Red Hat for 34 billion

first_imgThe news that IBM is to buy Red Hat – the enterprise Linux distribution – shocked the software world this weekend. It took many people by surprise because it signals a weird new world where the old guard of tech conglomerates – almost prehistoric in the history of the industry – are revitalizing themselves by diving deep into the open source world for pearls. So, why did IBM decide to buy Red Hat? And why has it spent so much to do it? Why did IBM decide to buy Red Hat? For IBM this was an expensive step into a new world. But they wouldn’t have done it without good reason. And although it’s hard to center on one single reason that forced IBM’s decision makers to put money on the table, there are certainly a combination of factors that meant this move simply makes sense from IBM’s perspective. Here are 4 reasons why IBM is buying Red Hat: Competing in the cloud market Disappointment around the success of IBM Watson Catching up with Microsoft To help provide support for an important but struggling Linux organization Let’s take a look at each of these in more detail. IBM wants to get serious about cloud computing IBM has been struggling in a competitive cloud market. It’s not exactly out of the running, with some reports placing them in third after AWS and Microsoft Azure, and others in fourth, with Google’s cloud offering above them. But wherever the company stands, it’s true that it is not growing at anywhere near the rate of its competitors. Put simply, if it didn’t act, IBM would lose significant ground in the cloud computing race. It’s no coincidence that cloud was right at the top of the IBM press release. Ginni Rometty, IBM Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, is quoted as saying “The acquisition of Red Hat is a game-changer. It changes everything about the cloud market… IBM will become the world’s #1 hybrid cloud provider, offering companies the only open cloud solution that will unlock the full value of the cloud for their businesses.” Clearly, IBM wants to bring itself up to date. As The Register wrote when they covered the story on Sunday IBM “really, really, really wants to transform itself into a cool and trendy hybrid cloud platform, rather than be seen eternally as a maintainer of legacy mainframes and databases.” But why buy Red Hat? You might still be thinking well, why does IBM need Red Hat to do all this? Can’t it just do it itself? It ultimately comes down to expanding what businesses can do with cloud – and bringing an open source company into the IBM family will allow IBM to deliver much more effectively on this than they have before. AWS appears to implicitly understand that features and capabilities are everything when it comes to cloud – to be truly successful, IBM needs to adopt both an open source mindset and toolset to innovate at a fast pace. This is what Rometty is referring to when she talks about “the next chapter of the cloud.” This is where cloud becomes more about “extracting more data and optimizing every part of the business, from supply chains to sales” than storage space. IBM’s artificial intelligence product, Watson, hasn’t taken off IBM is a company with its proverbial finger in many pies. Its artificial intelligence product, Watson, hasn’t had the success that the company expected. Instead, it has suffered a number of disappointing setbacks this year, resulting in Deborah DiSanzo, the head of Watson Health, stepping down just a week ago. One of the biggest stories was MD Anderson Cancer Center stepping away from a contract with IBM, after a report by analysts at investment bank Jeffries claimed that the software was “not ready for human investigational or clinical use.” But there are other stories too – all of which come together to paint a picture of a project that doesn’t live up to or deliver on its hype. By contrast, AI has been most impactful as a part of a cloud product. Just look at the furore around the AI tools within AWS – there’s no way government agencies and the military would be quite so interested in the product if it wasn’t packaged in a way that could be easily deployed. AWS, unlike IBM, understood that AI is only worth the hype if organizations can use it easily. In effect, we’re past the period where AI deserves hype on its own – it needs to be part of a wider suite of capabilities that enable innovation and invention with minimal friction. If IBM is to offer out Watson’s capabilities to a wide portion of users, all with varying use cases, IBM can begin to think much more about how the end product can deliver the biggest impact for these individual cases. IBM is playing catch up with Microsoft in terms of open source IBM’s move might be surprising, but in the context of Microsoft’s transformation over the last decade, it’s part of a wider pattern. The only difference is that Microsoft’s attitude to open source has slowly thawed, whereas IBM has gone all out, taking an unexpected leap into the unknown. It’s a neat coincidence that this was the weekend that GitHub officially became part of Microsoft. It’s as if IBM saw Microsoft basking in the glow of an open source embrace and thought we want that. Envy aside, there are serious implications. The future is now quite clearly open source – in fact, it has been for some time. You might even say that Microsoft hasn’t been as quick as it could have been. But for IBM, open source has been seen simply as a tasty slice of the software pie – great, but not the whole thing. This was a misunderstanding – open source is everything. It almost doesn’t even make sense to talk about open source as if it were distinctive from everything else – it is software today. It’s defining the future. Joseph Jacks, the founder of Open Source Capital, said  that “IBM buying @RedHat is not about dominating the cloud. It is about becoming an OSS company. The largest proprietary software and tech companies in the world are now furiously rushing towards the future. An open future. An open source software driven future. OSS eats everything.” IBM is heavily invested in Linux – and RedHat isn’t exactly thriving However, although open source might be the dominant mode of software in 2018, there are a few murmurs about it’s sustainability and resilience. So, despite being central to just about everything we build and use when it comes to software, from a business perspective it isn’t exactly thriving. Red Hat is a brilliant case in point. Despite being one of the first and most successful open source software businesses, providing free, open source software to customers in return for a support fee, revenues are down. Shares fell 14% in June following a disappointing financial forecast – and have fallen further since then. This piece in TechCrunch, almost 5 years old, does a good job of explaining the relative success of Red Hat, as well as its limitations: “When you compare the market cap and revenue of Red Hat to Microsoft or Amazon or Oracle, even Red Hat starts to look like a lukewarm success. The overwhelming success of Linux is disproportionate to the performance of Red Hat. Great for open source, a little disappointing for Red Hat.” From this perspective, this sets the stage for an organisation like IBM to come in and start investing in Red Hat as a foundational component of its future product and software strategy. Given that both organizations are heavily invested in Linux, this could be a really important relationship in supporting the project in the future. And although a multi-billion acquisition might not look like open source in action, it might also be one of the only ways that it’s going to survive and thrive in the future. Thanks to Amarabha Banerjee, Aarthi Kumaraswamy, and Amey Varangaonkar for their help with this post. Update on 9th July, 2019 As pert the reports from The Fortune, IBM on Tuesday morning closed its $34 billion acquisition of Red Hat, which was announced last October. The pricey deal, which paid Red Hat owners a hefty premium of more than 60%, marks IBM CEO Ginni Rometty’s biggest bet yet in transforming her 108-year-old technology company. In an interview Tuesday morning, she said some tech analysts have assumed the move to the cloud would lead to a “winner take all” scenario, where one giant platform—Amazon Web Services?—ends up with all the business.

Average Payment on Mortgages Jumps 17

first_img Mortgage payments are significantly outpacing home values, according to a recent report from CoreLogic. CoreLogic indicates that while the median price paid for a home nationally had risen by just over five percent year over year as of October 2017, the principal-and-interest mortgage payment on that median-priced home had increased by 17 percent, mainly due to the 2018 rate hikes.CoreLogic notes that other forecasts have indicated a slower pace of mortgage payment rises in 2019, closer to seven percent, based on a 4.8 percent annual gain in home prices by October 2019 according to the CoreLogic Home Price Index Forecast, and a 0.2-percentage-point gain in mortgage rates over that period, based on an average of six rate forecasts.Using the “typical mortgage payment” calculated using Freddie Mac’s average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage with a 20 percent down payment, CoreLogic also measured affordability. According to the study, the national median sale price in October 2018 – $218,733 – was up 5.2 percent year over year, while the typical mortgage payment was up 17.0 percent because of a 0.9-percentage-point rise in mortgage rates over that one-year period.CoreLogic predicts the median sale price will rise 2.5 percent in real, or inflation-adjusted, terms over the year ending October 2019, and the real typical monthly mortgage payment would rise from $918 in October 2018 to $963 by October 2019, a 4.9 percent year-over-year gain, while another forecast indicates that real disposable income will rise by just under 3 percent over the next year, indicating homeowners will be paying more out of their income toward mortgage payments.When adjusted for inflation, mortgage payments are still trending lower than the all-time peak. In October 2018, it remained 28.0 percent below the all-time peak of $1,275 in June 2006.For info, visit CoreLogic here.

Anastasiades concerned over possibility of Turkey sparking hot incident

first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades said on Thursday he was concerned over the possibility of Turkey sparking a ‘hot incident’ in view of the country’s constitutional referendum on April 16.“I fear the period from now until the referendum in Turkey, as well as the effort to create a climate of fanaticism within Turkish society,” Anastasiades told CNN Greece.His comments featured as a blurb in a sneak preview of the full exclusive interview, which CNN Greece will be airing on Friday.The president had made similar remarks to Greece’s Skai television network earlier this month.In the interview with CNN Greece, Anastasiades says he is convinced that the peace talks were suspended to help the agenda of Turkish president Tayyip Erdogan.“I want to believe that my interlocutor, Mustafa Akinci, was sincerely seeking a solution,” he adds.Negotiations broke off last month after parliament passed a law whereby public schools would commemorate a 1950 referendum for ‘enosis’ [union] with Greece.Anastasiades has since conceded the move was a mistake, but has also criticised Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci for over-reacting.Meanwhile Sigma reports that a meeting could take place between Anastasiades and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres during the president’s visit to New York next week.Citing sources close to the president, Sigma said that a definite date for the meeting should be expected soon. The meet would likely take place on Wednesday, March 22.Anastasiades is said to be seeking the tete-a-tete to inform the UN chief of the reasons for the suspension of the talks.Reacting to the news, Akinci was quoted by the Turkish Cypriot media as saying that he would be most displeased unless the UN chief did not summon him as well for a meeting.You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
