Annan nominates international judges for Cambodias Khmer Rouge trial

In a letter to Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday, Mr. Annan recommends 12 legal experts, including seven nominees for international judges, to serve in the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia for the Prosecution of Crimes Committed During the Period of Democratic Kampuchea.A 2003 agreement between the UN and Cambodia’s Government provides for a Trial Chamber, composed of three Cambodian judges and two international judges, and a Supreme Court Chamber, composed of four Cambodian judges and three international judges. It also called on the Secretary-General to provide a list of not less than seven nominees.The agreement provides that these five international judges will be appointed by the Supreme Council of the Magistracy of Cambodia, and in yesterday’s letter Mr. Annan now requested Cambodia’s Prime Minister to transmit his nominations to that Council.Under an agreement signed by the UN and Cambodia, the trial court and a Supreme Court within the Cambodian legal system will investigate those most responsible for crimes and serious violations of Cambodian and international law between 17 April 1975 and 6 January 1979.The three-year budget for the trials is about $56.3 million, of which $43 million is to be paid by the UN and $13.3 million by the Government of Cambodia.At last year’s pledging conference to support the UN assistance to the trials, Mr. Annan said that the crimes committed under the Khmer Rouge rule “were of a character and scale that it was still almost impossible to comprehend,” adding that “the victims of those horrific crimes had waited too long for justice.” read more

Toshiba chairman resigns over huge nuclear business loss

TOKYO – Toshiba Corp.’s chairman resigned Tuesday after the company logged such massive losses in its nuclear business that it must sell its lucrative computer-chip business to avoid going belly-up.The company projected a 712.5 billion yen ($6.3 billion) loss for its nuclear business related to the acquisition of CB&I Stone & Webster by its U.S. nuclear unit Westinghouse. The company also said it will not take on new projects to construct nuclear plants.President Satoshi Tsunakawa said the company also was looking for potential partners to acquire a stake in Westinghouse.He bowed deeply at a news conference to apologize for “troubling investors and stakeholders.”Earlier Tuesday, Toshiba delayed reporting its official financial results by a month, citing auditing problems. That sent Toshiba stock tumbling 8 per cent in Tokyo trading.After the market closed, it released unaudited numbers, warning they may change “by a wide margin.”The company said Shigenori Shiga, the chairman, will step down from the board, effective Wednesday, but stay on as a Toshiba executive.Toshiba said its net worth was in the negative, at minus 191 billion yen ($1.7 billion) by the end of last year. The company hopes to fix that by the end of March by selling its flash-memory business and other assets.In a stunning acknowledgement, Tsunakawa told reporters the company viewed its move into the nuclear sector by acquiring Westinghouse in 2006 as a misstep that led to its present woes.Westinghouse’s purchase in 2015 of CB&I Stone & Webster, a nuclear construction and services business, was aimed at winning more business in decontamination, decommissioning and plant projects. But it just amplified that problem.Auditors questioned Toshiba’s latest reporting on the acquisition of CB&I Stone & Webster after a whistleblower, an employee at Westinghouse, wrote a letter to the Westinghouse president.The company said it will reorganize its nuclear business to be directly under Tsunakawa for stricter monitoring.It will also focus on reactor maintenance, the nuclear fuel business and decommissioning of the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan, where reactors went into multiple meltdowns after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.Efficiency moves expected at CB&I Stone & Webster never played out, resulting in a huge overvaluation of the company’s worth that led to the huge losses. Toshiba denied it had purposely covered up the problems.In its preliminary results, Toshiba said it anticipates a group net loss of 500 billion yen ($4.4 billion) for April-December of last year, including the 712.5 billion yen hit from its nuclear business.The company is forecasting a group net loss of 390 billion yen ($3.43 billion) for the full year through March 31, instead of the 145 billion yen profit it had anticipated earlier.Toshiba, founded in 1875, employs about 190,000 people and used to be one of the most respected brands of Japan Inc. It still has a sprawling business spanning household appliances, railways, hydrogen energy and elevator systems.The company has been grappling in recent years with a scandal over company officials’ doctoring of accounting books to meet unrealistic profit targets.“It is so unfortunate that this has happened,” said Ryoji Sato, a company director, when asked by a reporter about the company’s promises to come clean. “We must keep trying to do better.”___Follow Yuri Kageyama on Twitter at https://twitter.com/yurikageyamaHer work can be found at http://bigstory.ap.org/content/yuri-kageyama by Yuri Kageyama, The Associated Press Posted Feb 14, 2017 2:50 am MDT Last Updated Feb 14, 2017 at 7:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Toshiba Corp.

Brock student wins two awards in national science photo competition

Dana Harris calls Nov. 9 her “special day.”It was on that day last week that the Master of Sustainability student became a first time aunt, and also the day she was told, in the strictest of confidence, that she had captured two top prizes in a national science research photo competition.Harris had to keep the secret of her achievement under wraps until Nov. 14, when the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) announced the winners of its Canada-wide Science Exposed competition.The competition showcases images taken during scientific research being conducted in all fields by faculty and student researchers in post-secondary institutions and researchers in public and private research centres.Dana Harris’ submission to the NSERC Science Exposed competition featuring cells of the jack pine tree.Harris received the People’s Choice Award and a Jury Prize for her photo, “Exploring the Jack Pine Tight Knit Family Tree.”“It’s a super huge honour to have people sharing my photo, voting on it and just enjoying it,” says Harris. “And, to get that mention from the NSERC jury members was really gratifying.”Diane Dupont, Dean of Graduate Studies, said the Faculty is “so proud of Dana and her success in the NSERC Science Exposed photography contest.” “To win the People’s Choice Award is an outstanding achievement,” Dupont said. “This award is a testament to the cutting-edge research she is pursuing involving the globally-relevant topic of climate change.”Harris’ photo shows phases of developing xylem cells, stained in different colours, that are found in a wood sample cored from the outermost part of a jack pine tree in the Northwest Territories, where she is from.The image, shot from a microscope, shows the jack pine tree’s phloem, cambial and xylem cells (blue dye) and mature xylem cells (red dye) in a thin slice of the wood. It is one of a series of images taken weekly over the past year to track the growth of the jack pine tree’s various cells.“This type of information is useful for researchers who create climate reconstructions using tree rings as a source of historical climate data,” explains Harris.She thanked her supervisor, Professor of Geography and Tourism Studies Michael Pisaric, and her fellow student researchers in Brock’s Water and Environment Laboratory (WEL) for their support.“Dana’s research is helping to understand how important tree species in the boreal forest are affected by climate change,” says Pisaric. “Her research also helps to inform larger questions concerning carbon uptake by the boreal forest.“Northern regions of Canada are being impacted by changing climatic conditions, including warmer temperatures, changing precipitation regimes and altered frequency and intensity of forest fires and other disturbance agents.”The WEL lab is co-directed by Pisaric and Associate Professor of Geography and Tourism Studies Kevin Turner, with the aim to explore how terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in Canada’s North are changing in response to climatic and environmental change.    Harris says she is happy that research on climate change and environmental conditions in the North were acknowledged with awards in the competition.Earlier this year, the photos of 20 researchers from across Canada, including Harris’s entry, were shortlisted and posted on NSERC’s website. People viewing the 20 photos were given the chance to vote for their favourite image. A panel of judges also chose three images that won jury prizes.Harris was also a competitor in NSERC’s Science, Action! research video contest, making the first cut of the three-round competition with her video “Jack Pine Growth, NT.”NSERC is Canada’s federal funding agency for university-based research, supporting faculty and students through a number of awards. In the most recent round of funding, 18 faculty researchers and nine students received a total of $3.2 million. read more

Ohio States Taylor Decker still the little brother but coming into his

Sophomore right tackle Taylor Decker (68) gets set to block a defender during a game against Iowa Oct. 19 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 34-24.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorHeading into the 2013 season, the Ohio State football team felt comfortable with most of its offensive line.The Buckeyes returned four starters from the 2012 team — redshirt-seniors Jack Mewhort, Marcus Hall and Corey Linsley and senior Andrew Norwell — who had started a combined 80 games for OSU before the season began.Sophomore right tackle Taylor Decker hadn’t started one.Decker, who has started all seven games at right tackle for OSU this season, said his relationship with the other lineman has helped him grow as a player.“I’ll definitely always be the younger guy, sort of thing because I’m like a little brother to them basically, I would say,” Decker said. “They’ve had good careers and they’ve established themselves and they deserve respect that comes along with that … I do feel I’ve improved and gotten closer with them, but it’s kind of a little brother relationship. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”Against Iowa, Decker played potentially his best game, coach Urban Meyer said in a press conference Monday, going as far as to name him honorable mention for team champion.The offensive line dominated the team award, with Hall, Mewhort and Linsley all being named champions.“Our offensive line played exceptional,” Meyer said. “The champions were Marcus Hall, Jack Mewhort and Corey Linsley … Four to five were champions, because Norwell was one of the players of the game, and Taylor Decker received honorable mention, you’ll win most games if that happens.”Senior running back Carlos Hyde benefited from the performance of the offensive line against the Hawkeyes, rushing for 149 yards and two touchdowns.“It was a great performance by those guys. I love those guys to death and I’m happy to be able to run behind those guys and it’s exciting to see them … I came in with four of them. Taylor’s a (sophomore), to see them have success, it’s nice. When they go, I go.”Decker, a Vandalia, Ohio, native did play in all 12 games during Meyer’s first season in Columbus, but was second on the depth chart after former-Buckeye Reid Fragel and did not record a start.Coming into the season, there was some doubt surrounding Decker, co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Ed Warinner said, but the coaching staff was confident he would “turn the corner.”“You have to believe in the decisions you made, you have to believe in the talent you see and you have to know if you stay the course and you do things the right way, usually they work out pretty well for you,” Warinner said. “And I didn’t have any doubt that at some point he would turn the corner.”The line is a tight-knit group, Decker said, and they don’t let anything get in the way of working together as a unit.“I wouldn’t say we’re necessarily competing against each other because we have to work together as a whole unit to accomplish anything,” Decker said. “I think it’s more of ‘Did we play together well as a unit? Did we have enough rushing yards? Did we protect the quarterback well?’ Obviously, you want to grade out well, but I don’t think there’s any animosity toward each other about it.”Warinner agreed and said everyone is pulling for each other when they are out on the field.“It’s a group that wants everybody to do well and doesn’t care who gets the credit and that’s the beautiful thing about offensive lines, when you can get that, that’s when it’s fun to coach them,” Warinner said.The drive to succeed on the field doesn’t stop some players on the line from joking around though, Decker said.“It’s fun. I mean we got all kinds of personalities in there and like you said, there’s some goofballs in there,” Decker said. “Everybody’s pretty humorous, pretty funny guys and when it comes down to it they all get the job done. Being able to have fun while we’re playing this game just makes it so much better.”He specifically pointed out Hall as being a clown when he is off the field.“Marcus, he’s really funny. He cracks me up. He’s always real positive about everything — got a really positive outlook on it,” Decker said. “He’s got that positive attitude and he’s always just picking people up. Off the field, he’s a jokester, he’s a pretty funny guy.”Despite his recent performances, Decker struggled in his first career start against Buffalo Aug. 31, where he often lined up across the line from Bulls senior linebacker Khalil Mack, a top NFL prospect.If it weren’t for his teammates and the coaching staff keeping his spirits up after the tough games, he wouldn’t have been able to be where he is, Decker said.“I knew that wasn’t me, that’s not how I had been playing and performed in camp prior to (Buffalo) and the weeks leading into it,” Decker said. “It was a tough pill to swallow but just had to bounce back and recover from it and play the way I could play.”Warinner said his struggles against the Bulls are not a representation of Decker as a player.“He has great talent. He’s a young kid. He could easily be a redshirt-freshman, we played him a few snaps last year … His progress has been good. He’s playing solid football for us and continues to get better with a big upside,” Warinner said. “He’s getting to where we need him for this Big Ten stretch.”Next up, the Buckeyes are set to host Penn State Saturday at 8 p.m.The Nittany Lions are ranked 21st in rushing defense in the country, only allowing an average of 117.7 yards a game, but Decker said he thinks the line will be able to handle the pressure.“I know they got a good rushing defense,” Decker said. “They got good athletes and they’ve always been a good program. They’re going to have good players and we’re just going to have to focus on that and this upcoming week prepare for them.” read more
