South Sudan Conflict Peace Talks to Resume In Addis Ababa

first_imgGovernment of South Sudan and rebel representatives have gathered in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa to restart the much-delayed peace process. CCTV Africa has in the meantime learned that a new peace process will be launched on the side-lines of the ongoing African Union summit in Johannesburg. The talks are being hosted by the regional bloc IGAD, who has been mediating the crisis in South Sudan for months now. Several rounds of talks have been held over the crisis, but they have all ended with no binding agreement on forming a unity government.

The conflict between President Salva Kiir’s troops and forced loyal to rebel leader Riek Machar has been raging on and off for months.last_img read more

Call for ban on ‘painful ‘child restraints in custody

first_img Share Deliberately using pain to control young people in custody should be banned, a report has said.The call to end restraint practices described as painful, comes after 89 young people were surveyed for the Office of the Children’s Commissioner.One girl described restraints as “disgusting” while a boy said it had made him feel “helpless”.The children’s commissioner for England said the views showed the use of restraint differed greatly.Comments made by two of those interviewed were highlighted.The first, a female at a secure training centre said: “I think restraining should only be used in a really difficult situation, instead of just when young girls refuse to go to their room or education, it’s disgusting.”The second, a youth at a young offender institution said: “I said loosen it because I was in so much pain, and they said no, I’m going to use the force.”Dr Maggie Atkinson said: “The views expressed throughout clearly show how the use of restraint differs greatly between institutions, and where used and applied inappropriately can have a profound, lasting and negative impact on young people,members of society, it is important that practices used to improve their behaviour do not result in a negative outcome for their mental health and emotional well-being”The study was carried out by the charity User Voice, which is led by ex-offenders.Their report says: “In order for international standards to be complied with, the use of sanctioned pain to control children must be abolished”.‘Grim personal accounts’ It calls on the Youth Justice Board and Ministry of Justice to ban deliberately painful physical restraints immediately and pointed to standards recommended by the United Nations and European Union.Dr Atkinson said she was “disheartened and concerned” by some of the “grim personal accounts” of some young people.Mark Johnson, the founder of User Voice, said: “I recognise that members of staff in the secure estate can work with some of the country’s most troubled children.”But he added: “Physical force should only ever be used as a measure of last resort and must be done in the safest possible way.”A Ministry of Justice spokesman said: “Restraint is only ever used by staff as a last resort when a young person’s behaviour puts themselves or others at serious risk.“The Independent Review of Restraint, published in December 2008, concluded that, in exceptional circumstances, pain-compliant techniques were necessary in the secure estate for children and young people, to manage serious incidents.“The government has made good progress on implementing recommendations from the review.“To date we have implemented two thirds of the 56 accepted recommendations and continue to work together with the National Offender Management Service and the Youth Justice Board to implement the remaining ones as quickly and fully as possible.”Source: BBC News Share Tweet 18 Views   no discussionscenter_img Sharing is caring!

McIlroy ready for Royal County Down

first_imgAfter his last competitive appearance at Royal County Down, an annoyed Rory McIlroy turned professional and headed to the first stage of the European Tour’s qualifying school. Eight years later, McIlroy is back as a four-time major winner, world number one and a tournament host who can persuade world-class players to compete in the Irish Open and rich men to pay £100,000 for 18 holes in his company. That money from his pro-am partners will go to McIlroy’s own charitable foundation, as will any prize money the 26-year-old wins this week, with a third victory in five events worth £416,000. It is al l a far cry from the narrow defeat in the 2007 Walker Cup which marked the end of McIlroy’s amateur career, but the start of a friendship with United States team member Rickie Fowler which has seen the Players Championship winner return to the Northern Ireland links this week. ” I didn’t even stay for the after-tournament dinner/party,” McIlroy said on Wednesday. “I was heading off to the Oxfordshire Golf Club to compete in the first stage of Q-School. From that point to eight years on, and driving back in here again, it’s a little different. “At that time, not being a part of a winning team, I was probably driving out of here thinking, ‘Why did I stay amateur for two days of golf?’ “But looking back at it, it was one of the best experiences I had. And not just in terms of the golf but the people that you meet and the friendships you make and the friendships you keep. It’s something that you don’t appreciate then. But whenever you move on a few years, that stuff is just as important.” McIlroy and Fowler – who joked that he is probably one of the few people who does remember that post-Walker Cup party because he did not have anything to drink – have been friends ever since, with the American needing no persuading to accept McIlroy’s invitation. The same could not be said of McIlroy’s pro-am partners, who needed some cajoling before parting with their hard-earned money. “The auction was going way too slowly for my liking, so I put my hand up and said I’ll pay 100 grand to play by myself,” McIlroy said. “There were a few billionaires in that room, so that got their hands in their pockets. “I don’t think there is any target number for what we can raise this week – a million, million and a half, two? Just as much as we possibly can and hopefully I can contribute £416,000 after I win on Sunday. Press Association ” The Irish Open for me for the last few years was becoming a bit of a…. I don’t want to say a pain, but it didn’t quite fit in the schedule or I just wasn’t enjoying it as much as I could. And then the European Tour approached us about getting involved and we thought it was a perfect way to really kickstart the foundation and really start to help other people because of who I am and what I do. “So I’m not really playing for myself this week. I’m playing for a lot of other people and it gives me an incentive to go out there and enjoy it and try to play well.” McIlroy has missed the cut in the Irish Open for the last two years but believes he will benefit from a third early exit in four years at Wentworth, where he collapsed to a second round of 78 in the defence of his title. “I do feel refreshed,” the he added. “I didn’t get out of bed until one o’clock in the afternoon on Saturday. I came here on Sunday and played a quiet 18 holes. I came back on Monday morning and played. I feel very prepared. That (Wednesday’s pro-am) was my third practice round. I haven’t played three practice rounds for a tournament since the Masters. “Even if you play four or five weeks in a row, physically you feel fine. It’s more just the mental challenge of trying to keep it at that high level the whole time. Sometimes you just need to let yourself come down for a few days. That’s what sort of happened. I just couldn’t really keep it going.” Fowler has not competed since his remarkable win at Sawgrass, where he played the last six holes in six under par – taking a tournament-record 11 shots to finish birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie – before beating Sergio Garcia and Kevin Kisner in a play-off. “I still don’t think it’s completely sunk in,” said Fowler, whose second PGA Tour title was the perfect response to being labelled overrated by his fellow players in an anonymous poll at the start of the week. “I had to wait a long time to get another win but it couldn’t really have been at a better time, in one of the best tournaments we play and against the best field. “I look at a close friend like Jimmy Walker, who had kind of been in a similar situation; great player, being in contention, didn’t really get the job done and then once he got one win, he started rattling them off. I wouldn’t mind being in that position and getting back in contention this week and see where we can go with it.” last_img read more

Quips shut down Washington in showdown of undefeated AA teams

first_imgAliquippa (13-0) Head Coach Mike Zmijanac doesn’t keep track of career milestones. He admitted as much prior to the start of the WPIAL Championship Trophy presentation ceremony.The pleasant and unseasonably warm temperatures that gave the east coast a feeling of summer in late November might have caused some Washington (12-1) players to believe that they really had a chance to upset the Quips. ELUDES DEFENDER—Terry Swanson of Aliquippa eludes a Washington defender in the Quips 34-7 win, Swanson rushed for 206 yards. The WPIAL’s leading rusher junior Shai “Shy” McKenzie, entered the game with 2,689 yards and 42 touchdowns, but the Quips held him to only 33 yards on 18 carries. It was Aliquippa’s junior Terry Swanson who stole the show by rushing for 206 yards, including a 60 yards touchdown to lead the Quips to a 34-7 victory.The best–kept secret in football isn’t one anymore, other than perhaps if you see Swanson out of uniform.Swanson and Dravon Henry are the only set of teammates in the WPIAL to have rushed for more than 1,000 yards.Aliquippa won a record 15th WPIAL football championship. The Quips are a Class A school that plays up in classification to Class AA. The two best area teams are Aliquippa and Clairton. It would make for a dream matchup. Will they ever face one another?“We had a deal to play Clairton at the beginning of the 2012 season,” said defensive coach Greg Gill. “But, the WPIAL would not approve of the game. I hope someone can make that game happen and the Bears will find out what Aliquippa is all about.”last_img read more

Ice, Cougar linebrawl the topic of conversation in BCMMHL

first_imgWhen pressed to comment about the fights, Sprague continued to remain tight lipped.“The boys had some fun . . .. It’s something that happened,” Sprague said.B.C. Hockey is now involved in conducting a full-scale investigation of the incident.“We had five guys sitting out,” Sprague said when asked if any of the Cougar players were suspended.“They exchanged phone numbers on the ice and went and sat in the stands. It was good old-time hockey . . . it’s all good.”DiBella said one of his players was taken to hospital after the brawl.Kootenay had five players — Brandon Sookro, Kyle Hope, Tristan Pagura, Justin Post and Joel Wells — sitting out Sunday’s game.Cariboo entered the weekend tied for second spot in BCMMHL standings with Okanagan Rockets.Kootenay holds down last place in the 11-team league, more than 38 points behind Cariboo.The Cariboo Cougars professed to be the first BC Major Midget League team to broadcast games.However, the game video from Saturday was removed from the website as of Sunday.“The Cariboo Cougars videoed the game and I believe it was online,” DiBella said. “It’s something that’s out there that can be reviewed by B.C. Hockey and I hope that that is the case.” The Cariboo Cougars made it look easy, waltzing into the NDCC Arena to grab all four points in a two-game B.C. Hockey League Major Midget League series against the Kootenay Ice this past weekend.However, the game was not what everyone was talking about after the weekend set concluded Sunday.Instead, everyone’s favourite topic of conversation was the line brawl that ensued following Saturday’ 8-2 triumph by the Cougars.“I think it was an unfortunate set of circumstances,” Ice head coach Mario DiBella told The Nelson Daily after Sunday’s 8-3 loss against the Cougars.“The game was over and all the players had filed out onto the ice when a Cariboo player decided to he was going to start some extracurricular activities.”DiBella said both teams were on the ice after the final game buzzer sounded when one of the Kootenay players was slew footed by a Cariboo Cougar and everyone teamed up with a partner.Several Kootenay players had their helmets removed during the melee before a few fights broke out.The line brawl lasted for just over a minute before on-ice officials were able to restore order and the players left the ice.No other fights occurred off the ice.As many as ten players were suspended for Sunday’s game along with DiBella and Cariboo coach Trevor Sprague — both receiving two-game suspensions.Sprague and DiBella were both allowed to coach Sunday, as both teams assistant coaches were unavailable for the weekend series.While DiBella was eager to give his assessment of the incident, Sprague was less committal.“Guy went on the ice, they all has some fun and we all went back into the dressing room and went to the hotel,” Sprague said when asked to comment about Saturday night’s shenanigans.last_img read more
