Ethiopia seeks Indian help in agriculture, health
http://www.hindustantimes.com/Ethiopia-seeks-Indian-help-in-agriculture-health/Article1-559006.aspx

Indo-Asian News Service
June 17, 2010

A group of Ethiopian ministers and officials are in India to study the
Indian experience in healthcare, agriculture, and small and medium
enterprises.

Over the last one week, Minister for Capacity Building Tefera Walwa
and Addis Ababa Minister for Health Fontu Tsegaye have travelled
around India to look at the best practices of the Indian system.

With only 43 percent of its total area under cultivation, Ethiopia is
looking at India for help in increasing its farm production, officials
at the Ethiopian embassy said.

Walwa has even travelled to Punjab to invite the farming community to
tap agricultural resources in his country.

India-Ethiopian cooperation has gone up in recent years, with the Pan-
African e-network opening up avenues of e-learning and e-medicine with
premier institutions in India.
India's export-import bank has opened its third office in Addis
Ababa.

The Ethiopian capital city's health minister met with her counterparts
here to learn about national health programmes dealing with HIV/AIDS
and eye diseases.

She also met Delhi Health Minister A.K. Walia, who gave her a
comprehensive overview of the health services provided by the
government in the Indian capital.

Indian Law Resource Center wins international human-rights prize
http://helenair.com/news/local/article_fb42ac74-795a-11df-b5b9-001cc4c03286.html

By ANGELA BRANDT Independent Record | Posted: Thursday, June 17, 2010
12:00 am | (1)

Eliza Wiley Independent Record - For 30 years Robert T. Coulter has
played a key role in protecting rights of indigenous peoples.

The Indian Law Resource Center is one of three recipients sharing the
2010 Justice Prize from the Peter and Patricia Gruber Foundation.

"It's a wonderful recognition for the center," said Robert T. Coulter,
executive director of the ILRC, which has its headquarters in Helena.
"It was a gift – a wonderful gift."

The $500,000 prize honors organizations and individuals for
championing the rights of historically oppressed groups through
advocacy, legal reform and the development of international law.

Among other issues, the ILRC was a leading participant in the effort
to promote the United Nations' adoption of its Declaration on the
Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

"We'll use (the award) to carry on the work. We have so much still to
do," Coulter said.
Coulter said the center continues to work at getting the United States
to approve the declaration, which was adopted in 2007. The U.S.
delegation to the United Nations was one of only four to vote against
the declaration.

"That seems like one of the most pertinent things," he said.

The ILRC is based in Helena and also has an office in Washington, D.C.

In awarding the prize, the foundation said the ILRC has "exposed human
rights violations against indigenous peoples in the Americas, among
the most impoverished and vulnerable communities in the world. It has
helped to develop skills within communities to enable them to know and
claim their rights.

"In furtherance of this cause, the Center has engaged organs of the
United Nations, and brought cases before the Inter-American Commission
on Human Rights and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, using
international law to assert claims of indigenous communities," the
foundation said in a news release.

Another winner of the prize was Michael Kirby — a judge of Australia's
highest court who has been active in law reform and the promotion of
human rights both in his own country and internationally, particularly
law relating to privacy, data security, bioethics and HIV/AIDS.
John Dugard, a lawyer, writer and teacher who challenged apartheid law
in South Africa, is the other recipient.

The Peter and Patricia Gruber Foundation honors and encourages
educational excellence, social justice and scientific achievements
that better the human condition.

India approves hiring 53,500 health workers
http://igovernment.in/site/india-approves-hiring-53500-health-workers-37796

These male workers will be engaged in various disease control
programmes at health centres across the country under the National
Rural Health Mission
Published on 06/16/2010

New Delhi: In a bid to boost the public healthcare system, the central
government has approved hiring of more than 53,500 male workers to run
various disease control programmes at health centres across the
country under the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM).

The list was finalised at a meeting of the NRHM on Tuesday chaired by
Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad and attended by Human Resource
Development Minister Kapil Sibal, Minister for Rural Development and
Panchayati Raj CP Joshi and Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission
Montek Singh Ahluwalia, an official statement said here on Wednesday.
The NRHM was launched in 2005 with an aim to provide affordable
healthcare for all in rural areas. These workers will be recruited in
235 districts, identified as 'focus districts'.

The health workers will be hired on contract basis at an expense of
nearly Rs 385 crore per year. The central government will bear a major
chunk of this amount for the first three years — 85 per cent in the
first year, 75 per cent in the second year and 65 per cent in the
third year.

Officials said that the main areas of operation for the health workers
will be disease control programmes for malaria, TB, leprosy, filaria,
kala-azar and the like as well as other preventive healthcare
activities, including water testing, chlorination and sanitation,
reports IANS.

The programme also includes reviving a multipurpose course for health
workers and starting new schools in underserved districts.

"Nearly 56 health and family welfare training centres will be started
at a cost of Rs 59 lakh each. A stipendiary support of Rs 500 will be
given to those attending the course," an official said.

Gujarat begins process to appoint Lokayukta
http://igovernment.in/site/gujarat-begins-process-appoint-lokayukta-37801

The state government informed the High Court that it has begun the
exercise for filling up the post lying vacant for the last seven years
Published on 06/17/2010 - 06:53:24 AM

Ahmadabad: After almost seven years, the Gujarat government has
initiated the process of appointing a Lokayukta or ombudsman in the
state.

This information was provided by the state government to the Gujarat
High Court here on Wednesday following a public suit seeking the
appointment to the post.

According to the submission, the cabinet has passed a resolution for
appointing a Lokayukta and has forwarded it to the Governor for a
decision, reports IANS.

The government stated before a division bench of Justice Bhagwati
Prasad and Justice JC Upadhyaya that as part of the process, the
appointment would take place after the Governor has given her decision
on the matter and it is approved in the State Assembly.

Environmentalist Amit Jethwa had filed a petition seeking the High
Court's direction to the state government to initiate the process of
appointing a Lokayukta in the state.

Advocate for the petitioner, Vijay Nagesh, had submitted before the
court that the state does not have a Lokayukta for the last seven
years which makes it difficult for the public to lodge their
complaints.

This left them with no other choice but to approach the High Court, he
said. He further stated that non-appointment of a Lokayukta increases
the burden of the judiciary and hence the court should direct the
authorities to initiate action.

Uzbeks Targeted in South Kyrgyzstan
Destruction of Uzbek Property Systemic; Aid Distribution Difficult

The destruction caused by rioters looting and burning their way through ethnic Uzbek neighborhoods in Osh, Kyrgyzstan, was systematic and thorough, says a Human Rights Watch team on the ground.

In one neighborhood, the rioters – often ethnic Kyrgyz – burned down more than 400 homes, a mosque and a school. Homes owned by ethnic Kyrgyz remain standing. One man described how gangs drove through the neighborhood, torched houses, and shot at people trying to flee.

The violence has subsided, but many ethnic Uzbeks don't dare leave their neighborhoods. Human Rights Watch documented several cases in which ethnic Uzbeks were assaulted by men in camouflage when trying to enter a hospital or pick up humanitarian aid. This, along with the unstable security situation, makes distributing aid difficult.

There are surprisingly few police or soldiers in the city, raising serious questions about whether government forces there could contain any flare-up of the conflict.

Since the rioting began last Thursday, hundreds of people, mostly ethnic Uzbeks, have been killed and more than 1,000 injured. Uzbekistan has closed its border after taking in roughly 100,000 refugees. This border needs to remain open for those seeking refuge.

The International community should work with the Kyrgyz government, which took control two months ago after protests toppled the previous leadership. They should provide for the protection and humanitarian needs of all people.

The real test, however, will be whether they ultimately cancel the prize. The governing board is scheduled to meet in October.

The Consequences of Female Genital Mutilation in Iraqi Kurdistan

"I was 5. My mother took us, me and my sister, to a midwife ... They held me by force and removed a piece of flesh from my body. They opened up my legs, and it was very painful," said Baxcha A., now 22.

In Iraqi Kurdistan, two surveys suggest that at least 40 percent of women and girls between the ages of 14 and 22 have been subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM), a practice that involves cutting out the clitoris.

A new Human Rights Report describes what happens. Often, a midwife performs the procedure with an unsterile razor blade. The girls, generally between the ages of 3 and 12, are often unaware of what is about to happen to them.

The practice is perpetuated by mothers and other family members who want the best for their children. They believe the procedure will ensure that girls are marriageable. Many view women who haven't undergone FGM as "unclean." They also refer to it as an Islamic sunnah, an action taken to strengthen one's religion, although many Islamic clerics acknowledge it is not a religious requirement.

The procedure is associated with numerous long-lasting mental and physical health problems.

The Iraqi Kurdish authorities have taken positive steps in some areas of women's rights, including taking action against so-called 'honor' killings. Now they should acknowledge that FGM is a problem and work to end the practice.

Both were mathematicians in the Bay Area and I briefly considered
Kaczynski but his anger was diffuse while Streleski's was singularly
focused on one individual. I think that fits Lemond better.

AFAIK, during his second stint at Carrera (1993) the whole team was
implicated. And I meant Mr Conconi, not Mr Ferrari (oops) .

During the time of his 1987 triumphs, debatable.

Know what ??
It helps to state what you "know" : clean or doper.

I recall there was an alleged steroid detected in a blood test in the
early 1990s, with implications via Pedro Delgado and the 1988 TdF incident
(Delgado and Indurain being long-serving riders in the same Reynolds/
Banesto team setups) .

Yes.

Hinault is by far the first worst of the lot - genetically splicing

But yes, as I stated this is an implication linkage to Indurain.

Run a distribution on the height and weight of every successful
cyclist and then consider the chance that a guy that size could win in
the mountains of the TdF against smaller men also juiced on EPO.

And yes Hinault isn't guilty of just knowing Greg.

And Coggan, there is a spirit to the rules as well as the letter. I
recall but can't be sure there was a general caveat since Montreal
that medical procedures to assist performance were a violation. But
like most things only if someone elses catches you in the act.

Like BP this is the first time they've spilled large amounts of oil in
the ocean, just the first time we noticed. (ok this time it's
massive)

Everything a professional rider does is to boost his performance,
including visits to his physician. Perhaps we should keep riders
in pens the way we do rodeo bulls, and only let them out to ride.

The issue AFAIK is that at best the rider rankings are on a 12 month
rolling calculation. So if all these "top riders" are doing nothing since
say the 2009 TdF, their points totals are dwindling away.

I tried a quick search on the UCI rankings, and one source stated that
of April 2010, Radioshack were #15. As of last week, are they better/
same/worse ??

Yes and now we're finding that neither Leppy or Kloden were going to
race after all, another lie by Bruynel when he was being a cry baby
earlier this week.

I understand all that. It's subjective, but his face looks particularly
sunken. Perhaps it's also part of aging. I recall a photo of Hinault
climbing in a TdF where he looked like a 40 year old even though he was
in his twenties.

I had presumed his appearance was intentionally meant to look as
(naturally) old as possible. It works with the story.

Outside Magazine has a pretty good reputation for hard-nosed reporting.
IIRC, they printed and article or excerpt fro the Dan Coyle's book on
Armstrong which Armstrong found less than flattering. I think Coyle
said at the time that he didn't expect to be on Armstrong's Christmas
card list.

Dumbass -

The piece that Krakauer did for Outside on the 1996 Everest disaster
was one of the biggest pieces of shit I've ever read. Soooooo biased
and, IMO, wrong too. Krakauer blamed Fisher's company for everything,
singling out Anatoli Boukreev and neglecting to place any blame on Rob
Hall. Lame because Boukreev is the only one who saved anyone, Fisher's
company didn't lose and clients and Hall's company lost a number of
clients. From what I could tell, Krakauer pointed those fingers simply
because he didn't like Boukreev.

I read both Krakauer and Boukreev's books. Krakauer's account doesn't
add up when you look at who made it and who didn't.

thanks,

Kurgan. presented by Gringioni.

Well, it's Thursday, and LA got 5th on the stage and dropped Andy
Schleck and Leipheimer on the climb. Looked pretty damn good, like
he's coming into stronger form.

You've complained about LA's excuses, what's your rationalization for
him doing better than you predicted this time?

behind him today?
