Make way for catastrophe

first_imgThe Guardian, a British daily newspaper, has decided to change the language it uses for Climate Change. It will replace the term ‘Climate Change’ with terms like ‘climate emergency, crisis or breakdown’ and it will favour ‘global heating’ instead of ‘global warming’. Explaining this change, Editor-in-chief Katherine Viner stated, “The phrase ‘Climate Change’, for example, sounds rather passive and gentle when what scientists are talking about is a catastrophe for humanity.” The Guardian is not the only one that has decided to change its language and approach to climate change. Also Read – A staunch allyAcross the world, there is a groundswell of opinion that we have to do something drastic to avert the impending climate catastrophe. This all started with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C, giving just 12 years for limiting warming to less than 1.5°C to avoid climate catastrophe. Since then, all scientific reports that have been published indicate that we are moving to the precipice. The latest report published by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), shows that the health of the ecosystems on which our economies, livelihoods, food security, health and quality of life depend, is deteriorating more rapidly than ever anticipated. Around one million animal and plant species are now threatened with extinction, many within decades — more than ever before in human history — and global warming is playing a significant role in this, finds the report. Also Read – Cuban pathosTaking a cue from these dire predictions, slowly, a grassroots movement is emerging in the developed world that is demanding drastic emissions cuts. Led by Greta Thunberg, the Swedish school girl demanding immediate action on Climate Change, thousands of school pupils in Europe have started abandoning classrooms since late last year, for a day every month, to protest against climate change. Extinction Rebellion, an international movement demanding radical changes, locked-down central London for ten days — their protest forced the United Kingdom parliament to declare a national climate emergency. Activists are now working with governments — from local to national — to declare a climate emergency and come out with plans to end the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) that are heating the planet. Scotland has already declared a climate emergency and is setting targets to reduce GHG emissions to net-zero by 2045. The New Zealand parliament is likely to vote soon on this issue. But what about India? Is there a groundswell of public opinion in favour of drastic action on climate emergency? Unfortunately, no. There is a little recognition of climate emergency itself. The environmental non-profits and think-tanks are stuck in the politics of developed vs. developing countries, in the process, getting quite busy in their meaningless blame game. The bureaucracy likes nothing better than status quo and our political masters have remarkably little understanding of the concern. Their level of seriousness can be gauged by the fact that during the entire 2019 Lok Sabha election campaign, the term “Climate Change” was not even uttered by one among our many top political leaders. But, there is a climate emergency and there is little better than us recognising this quickly. Just look at the extreme weather conditions in the last month in different parts of India: The east coast was hit by Cyclone Fani in the beginning of May. Because of the exceptionally accurate predictions of India Meteorological Department (IMD), we saved thousands of lives. But the economic loss nevertheless caused in Odisha is estimated to be in excess of Rs 50,000 crore. It will take Odisha many years to reconstruct and pull people out of poverty. Maharashtra and Karnataka are reeling under drought, with 80 per cent of districts in Karnataka and 72 per cent in Maharashtra suffering from water scarcity and crop failure. Heatwave gripped different parts of the country and claimed lives in states like Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Telangana and Maharashtra. Dust and thunderstorms swept through the west, central and north India as a major weather disturbance pummelled the region, claiming the lives of at least 64 people (the same number as Cyclone Fani), a majority of them in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat. These are going to get worse as the global temperature rise inches towards 1.5°C in a few years. As I have written before, India is going to be the worst sufferer of the climate catastrophe. It is, therefore, in our interest to take the lead in reducing emissions and building resilience in our economy, infrastructure and ecosystems to withstand the onslaught of the changing climate and its extreme impacts. As a rejuvenated government has now taken office, it is imperative that it recognises the climate emergency and takes serious measures to address it. These are some of the key actions that the new government must take if it wants to seriously address the climate emergency: Move to electricity: Electricity currently meet less than 20 per cent of our final energy consumption. The remaining 80 per cent is met by direct burning of fuels, mostly fossil fuels, in industry, transport and for cooking food. We must put a roadmap to meet at least 80 per cent of our final energy needs in the form of electricity. This will mean that we will have to shift industry, transport and cooking to electricity. This has an added benefit of reducing air pollution significantly. De-carbonise the electricity sector: The electricity sector is at a critical juncture. The falling cost of renewable power and grid-scale storage point us to the fact that a 100 per cent renewable-based electricity supply is technically and economically feasible in the not-too-distant future. The country needs an ambitious goal to generate 100 per cent electricity from non-fossil fuel sources by 2050. Protect ecosystems: Our protection lies in the protection of all ecosystems. A healthy and vibrant ecosystem — from mangroves to forests to floodplains to rivers to land — will build our resilience to withstand the worst impacts of climate catastrophe. Institute safety nets: Millions of people will lose their crops, homes and businesses every year because of extreme weather events. There is an urgent need to put affordable and effective safety nets to save them from total ruins. For this, safety nets like agriculture insurance, home and business insurance or other compensation programmes must be strengthened. Monitor, Forecast & Warn: The changing weather pattern will require massive investments in forecasting and warning systems. From agro-meteorological advisory to warning farmers about inclement weather to predicting cyclones and extreme rainfalls — forecasting and warning systems will go a long way in saving lives and building resilience in our economy. Lastly, and most importantly, let us recognise that climate emergency is real and occurring — let us take this message to all and build a groundswell of opinion in favour of real action to prevent climate catastrophe.

Serial rapist shows no sign of controlling violent sexual urges court

first_imgTORONTO — An Ontario judge has ordered a serial rapist jailed indefinitely, saying the man’s refusal to receive treatment for his violent sexual urges means he is likely to harm more women if released into the community.Ontario Superior Court Justice Anne Molloy imposed the sentence last week after designating Andrew Medford as a dangerous offender, a label applied to Canada’s most dangerous violent and sexual predators.The 28-year-old Toronto man was convicted in 2016 of multiple charges, including sexual assault and assault, in two separate court cases involving violent sexual assaults against two women.In one case in October 2013, he choked a woman until she performed oral sex on him in October 2013, then broke into her home weeks later to attack and rape her repeatedly at knifepoint.Court documents say DNA evidence in that case later linked him to a 2011 incident in which he raped another woman at knifepoint and choked her until she became unconscious.The documents say a forensic psychiatrist who assessed Medford found he has a “sexual paraphilic disorder,” likely sexual sadism, and shows a strong preference for “coercive sex with violence.”While there is no cure for sexual paraphilia, Medford’s denial of his condition and his refusal to be treated for it suggest “his deviant conduct will continue unabated, and likely escalate, if he is released into the community,” Molloy wrote in a ruling released on Sept. 11.“He prefers coercive sex to sex with a willing and consenting partner. He is likely also a sexual sadist and, if not, at the very least is sexually stimulated by violence against women. He has demonstrated a failure to control those impulses,” the judge wrote.“If he does not accept treatment and learn how to place internal controls on his behaviour, then external controls are the only way to manage the risk.”GRAPHIC WARNING: The following details may disturb some readers.At his first trial, court heard Medford had known the complainant for about a year when he sexually assaulted her in her apartment.He first asked her to perform oral sex and when she refused, he grabbed her by the throat and pushed her against the couch to the point where she felt she could not breathe, court documents say.She then performed oral sex under duress, making several attempts to stop, while Medford secretly recorded the incident on his cellphone, the documents say. When he grabbed her by the throat again, she fought back and he left her apartment.Believing he would not return, the woman did not call police, court documents say. But weeks later, in the early hours of Nov. 24, 2013, Medford forced his way into her apartment, beating and sexually assaulting her “in numerous horrific ways over an extended period of time,” the judge wrote.He threw her on a table, punched her in the face, and choked her until she became unconscious, the documents say. He then made her remove her clothes and perform oral sex at knifepoint, again recording the assault, they say.Medford then raped her despite her attempts to fight back, court heard.At one point, the woman grabbed the hand in which Medford held the knife and he pulled the knife back through her hand, badly cutting her fingers, court heard. Medford left quickly afterwards but threatened to sexually assault the woman’s daughter if she told police.After his arrest, his DNA was entered into a database, where it matched with samples taken in a 2011 attack on another woman, the documents say. The assailant in that incident had not previously been identified.In a second trial, court heard an acquaintance Medford ran into at a bar agreed to perform oral sex on him in exchange for money. The encounter, which took place in a carport next to a seniors’ home, began consensually but Medford quickly became violent, court documents say.That woman attempted to return his money and walk away but Medford pulled out a knife and threatened her, then raped her and choked her until she lost consciousness, the documents read.The woman’s screams prompted a bystander to call 911 and Medford fled when someone yelled at him.Paola Loriggio, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

PM promises tough sentences for predators

00:00:00 | 00:00:00::Projekktor V1.3.09 (Update)Tougher penalties for child predators. That’s the name of the act the Conservative government plans to introduce when Parliament resumes in the fall.The Prime Minister made the announcement in Toronto Thursday.  Lisa Hepfner has the details.Harper said he was sad to have to make the announcement but that the measures are necessary because child porn offenses have risen dramatically, almost half involve four or more charges and children represent more than half of all reported sex assaults in Canada.He says his new law will protect children.“Sadly, there are truly evil people out there. We don’t understand them and we don’t care to. We understand only that they must be dealt with.”His new measures include requiring child sex crime sentences to be served consecutively. One after another, not at the same time. Especially when there are multiple victims.Also, increased maximum and minimum penalties and spouses of a person charged with child pornography may have to testify in court.Lianna McDonald from the Canadian Centre for Child Protection says longer sentences keep offenders from re-offending, as is often the case in child sex cases.“We also know one individual might have multiple victims. The sentence has not adequately reflected the number of those victims so … for some victims, it may not seem like what happened to them really mattered.”The Prime Minister says for too long, Canada’s criminal justice system has catered to criminals.“We all remember Gordon Stuckless, the man at the centre of the Maple Leaf Gardens abuse scandal. He pled guilty to molesting 24 boys over 20 years.”“He was paroled in 2001 after serving 3 years of his sentence. Three years, for 20 very serious offenses.”“Of course the victims have to cope for the rest of their lives with what such people have done to them.” read more


Fundraising spurs the young

first_imgThe young Greek Australian community is showing that its generation is very far removed from the stereotypes surrounding its age group. The young are becoming a huge force in fundraising for much needed charities and causes, surpassing the efforts of many Greek associations in Australia. For many of the new youth organisations in Australia, philanthropy is part of their constitution and is something they go out of their way to uphold.Just recently, AHEPA’s Youth chapter in Victoria raised more than $4,000 to help fight the growing Ebola outbreak. The National Union of Greek Australian Students (NUGAS) has united university students for years and is a huge contributor to fundraising for charities directly related to the Greek community.Earlier on in the year, MUNGA, the Melbourne University student association, raised $2,500 for the Greek Centre for Contemporary Culture.Melbourne’s dance groups also contribute, many times using their ticket prices to donate to worthy causes. Pontiaki Estia has many young members that are involved with their dancing programs and recently the group raised $4100 for the Lemnos Gallipoli memorial. The contribution of the young isn’t just pigeon-holed to large groups, the urge to give back is in everyone.Events promoter for Fist Pump Entertainment Group, Billy Biliris, 20, has spent most of his short career running charity events for the Greek community.He is currently organising a charity dinner event to become a part of his upcoming food and wine festival in Sydney and will raise funds for something close to his heart. “My dad was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when he was 30 years old, so for a great part of my life I’ve seen what MS does to you,” he tells Neos Kosmos.“I decided to do a Greek night for MS, I started that when I was 16 years old.”He raised a whopping $40,000 in 2010 for the cause, and had more than 450 people in attendance. He’s hoping to replicate that in his event next year, but hasn’t stopped at the one charity. In 2012, he helped raise $70,000 for the Gasnier Foundation, an organisation invested in cancer research and treatment and fundraised for the Sydney Children’s Hospital. He says the urge to give back is in every Greek innately, but sometimes more so in young Greek Australians, who understand the sacrifice and hardships their parents and grandparents suffered through in coming to Australia.“If you go into our culture, it’s so enriched in giving back,” he says. “Being Greek is more than just a label, it’s an honour. It’s not about who you are it’s about the person you are.”Sadly he sees there’s still a reluctance for the older members of the community to trust the young and get them involved.“They’re not giving enough of the young people an opportunity to achieve something and take over,” he says. “We have so many associations, so many community organisations that and I can guarantee you no more than six of those organistaions out of the hundreds that we have someone under the age of 25 and that’s alarming.”Founding member of the AHEPA Achilleas Youth wing, Jiannis Taousis had to work to get the organsiation to come around to the idea that a youth chapter was viable and wanted by the community.Being invited to speak at an AHEPA event, he presented the idea of creating a youth wing and was met with laughter. “They laughed at me because they had failed many many times to get youth involved,” Mr Taousis tells Neos Kosmos.“They had never been approached by a young member of the Greek community.”The creation of the youth chapter was a direct reaction to lack of clubs for the young that were about giving back to the community. Achilleas Youth never tried to be a group that solely organised dinner dances, booze cruises or be another dancing group that have been on offer for years through student Greek societies. Rather, it chose to define itself by its philanthropic character and its networking focus.In his presidency, Mr Tsaousis has managed to create precedents for AHEPA. With the group’s fundraising work for the charity O Kivotos tou Kosmou, which cares for disadvantaged children in Greece he got the Victorian branch to take notice. Together, the two branches have raised over $79,000.Many young Greek Australians have been introduced to charity work and community service through their High Schools, and are very open to continuing that work but haven’t been able to become members of worthwhile causes till now.President of NUGAS Victoria, Tass Sgardelis says not all philanthropic work should be about raising funds. He is working to launch a new initiative in the next month that will have students visiting and volunteering their time at Greek charity AGAPI and nursing home Fronditha Care. “In the last couple of years we’ve figured out we can only contribute so much financially, we do as much as we can, but where our greatest power is in our volunteering,” he tells Neos Kosmos.“In the next month starting in October we’ll be doing regular visits to Fronditha and Agapi Care.“We’re also really trying to make an effort to go to Greek schools over the next three weeks to educate them about where they can learn Greek.”He feels the character of NUGAS has changed, and is seeing a shift in what members expect from the club. There is a consensus that many young people are feeling stifled at existing Greek associations. The old guard blames a lack of interest from the young, while the young feel they aren’t wanted at the clubs and can’t see change coming anytime soon.Mr Taousis says the young are finding their voice in these new groups and are showing that they can be reliable.“Whenever there’s a change in power, obviously some people loose out, they’re reluctant to hand over the reigns,” he says.“But ultimately we’ve got these youth that are energized, and they’re going to bring this renewed energy towards philanthropy.”At least the young are leading by example and showing new ways of reaching out to the community.

Canadian Grandmother Accused of Pirating Metro 2033

first_imgWhat kind of activities does your eighty-year-old grandmother enjoy? Quilting? Cross-stitch? Maybe she’s a bit more modern and she likes killing zombies in post-nuclear Moscow.Sounds pretty unlikely, right? And yet somewhere in Canada there’s a nice octogenarian lady that an anti-piracy group thinks pirated Metro 2033. And they were confident (or careless) enough to send her an infringement notice. They also strongly suggested that she pay $5,000 to keep things from getting messy.So this is what it’s come to, copyright police? Shaking down the elderly. Classy move.The woman rightly believed the email that showed up in her inbox to be nothing more than a scam, and it’s easy to see why. The tactics are quite similar, what with the threat of legal action and the “helpful” inclusion of an easy way to submit a payment to make the problem go away. When she called her ISP, Cogeco, they confirmed that the email she received was definitely a real infringement notice.They knew as much because they sent it to her. Not because they wanted to, mind you. I’m guessing that Cogeco doesn’t enjoy playing the goon, especially not when someone’s grandmother is the target.No, they did it because they’re required to. In 2015, Canadian lawmakers passed the Copyright Modernization Act. The Act has drawn comparisons to SOPA and that’s where the $5,000 figure came from. That’s the maximum fine a non-commercial infringer can be slapped with in Canada.Obviously if your business model involves scaring people into paying you money you’re going to throw around the biggest number you can. This 86-year-old Canadian isn’t having any of it, though.She’s refused to pay, and with good reason. She’s never even heard of Metro 2033 and swears she didn’t download it. I think I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt.last_img read more


SENSITIZATION ALONE CANNOT BRING AN END TO THE “BACK WAY” TO…

first_imgrisks involved and these young people have seen their fellow youths die at sea while trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea to get to Europe. A lot of sensitization has been conducted to dissuade youths from attempting to venture such risky journeys, but such sensitization mostly fall on deaf ears.All they understand is they have to live decent lives and not left to rot in unemployment, abject poverty and degradation. Lacking employment or a decent income to fend for their families or parents transforms them into ‘no bodies’ who lack respect and dignity within their families and communities. This is what preoccupies their minds and motivate them to venture the risky journey to Europe by hook or crook.The solution to the “back way” is actually rooted right here in Africa. Once there is economic prosperity for most Africans, the back way will become a thing of the past. Employment and income will be generated by developing the productive base of the economy and guarantee the equitable distribution of resources.The “back way” phenomenon is a concern for both Europe and Africa and the two have to work together for its eradication. Strictly guarding the borders alone cannot solve the problem. ]]>last_img read more
