Cultural traditions in China and Croatia put on UN heritage protection list

15 November 2010Three cultural elements in China and one in Croatia were today inscribed on the United Nations list of cultural traditions in need of urgent protection at a meeting in Kenya of parties to the international convention designed to preserve the world’s intangible cultural heritage. Three cultural elements in China and one in Croatia were today inscribed on the United Nations list of cultural traditions in need of urgent protection at a meeting in Kenya of parties to the international convention designed to preserve the world’s intangible cultural heritage.Some 400 State delegates, representatives from civil society and observers are attending the 5th session of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, which is being held for the first time in Sub-Saharan Africa.The new additions to the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding include the Meshrep tradition found among the Uygur people in China’s Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region. A complete Meshrep event includes a rich collection of traditions and performance arts, such as music, dance, drama, folk arts, acrobatics, oral literature and games.Also added to the list are the watertight-bulkhead technology of Chinese junks developed in southern China’s Fujian province. The technology permits the construction of ocean-going vessels with watertight compartments. Delegates also selected China’s wooden movable-type printing for addition to the list. The technique is one the world’s oldest and is practised in Rui’an county, Zhejiang province, where it is used in compiling and printing clan genealogies.Croatia’s Ojkanje singing also made it to the list. Found in the Croatian regions of the Dalmatian hinterland, the Ojkanje is performed by two or more singers using a distinctive voice-shaking technique created by the throat. Each song lasts as long as the lead singer can hold his or her breath.The Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage, which is administered by UNESCO), was adopted in 2003 and is ratified by 132 States. It recommends the protection of elements such as oral traditions and expressions, performing arts, social practices, rituals and festive events, knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe and know-how related to traditional handicrafts.“The Convention is one of the most innovative instruments that we have developed to address contemporary challenges,” said Irina Bokova, UNESCO’s Director General, in her opening address. “I see our commitment to intangible heritage as an act of solidarity, respect and understanding of others,” she said.During the five-day meeting, the Committee will also examine 47 elements for inscription to the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.Ms. Bokova lamented the absence at this year’s session of inscription candidates from Africa.“We should feel an obligation towards the African continent and to all those who have an extremely rich intangible heritage and who are not fittingly represented in the Convention’s Lists,” she said. read more

UN envoy in Iraq welcomes beginning of parliamentary voting process

“Today’s special voting marks the beginning of the voting process,” the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Iraq, Martin Kobler said in a news release. The country’s electoral body, the Independent High Electoral Commission (IHEC), demonstrated “a high level of professionalism in this first election organized under full Iraqi ownership,” Mr. Kobler stressed. “Now that Iraqi security forces, police and military have exercised their right to cast their ballot, all eyes are focused on the election day on 20 April,” the UN Envoy noted. He urged the security forces to ensure a free and secure environment for the elections. At least 15.5 million Iraqis are eligible to vote in the 20 April polls, according to official estimates, where more than 8,000 candidates are reportedly vying for 378 seats on provincial councils. Provincial councils are responsible for nominating governors who take charge of the provinces’ administration, finances and reconstruction projects.“It is of the utmost importance that voters turn out in an orderly and safe environment free of violence, threats and intimidation,” Mr. Kobler concluded.Next week’s elections are the first Iraq has held since parliamentary elections in 2010. read more

UN striving to get prevention right SecretaryGeneral says in Andrew Carnegie lecture

“The UN and its Member States have much work to do. As we strive to get prevention right, let us continue to be inspired by the contributions of David Hamburg,” the Secretary-General said in the inaugural Andrew Carnegie Distinguished Lecture on conflict prevention, which honoured Mr. Hamburg.The event, which took place this evening at Headquarters, was co-sponsored by the United Nations and the Foreign Policy Association. Honouree David A. Hamburg, who discussed his new book Give Peace A Chance, was introduced by Robert Orr, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Strategic Planning. “David Hamburg has made truly important intellectual contributions to the world and to the work of the United Nations,” the Secretary-General said, noting that Mr. Hamburg, during 15 years as head of the Carnegie Corporation, helped to transform the way the United Nations, Governments and the broader public looked at a range of issues, from public health and education to nuclear non-proliferation to conflict prevention. “His work on conflict prevention has been especially notable,” Mr. Ban said, recalling that one the main priorities of his tenure as UN Chief has been to improve the Organization’s ability to address brewing tensions before they become bigger and costlier crises. “I wanted us to make greater use of the many tools available under Chapter VI of the UN Charter to prevent armed conflict,” he said, adding that in that endeavour, a major reference point has been the seminal 1997 report of the Carnegie Commission on Preventing Deadly Conflict. The key elements of that report still resonated today, he said, citing its focus on early action, national ownership and the critical role of civil society; the need to address the full range socio-economic and political factors to ensure lasting peace; and the acknowledgement that in extreme situations, the use of force remains an important tool to prevent even greater atrocities.“The United Nations has come a long way in internalizing and operationalizing these insights,” the Secretary-General said, noting that UN special envoys are the most visible manifestations of the world body’s growing emphasis on preventive diplomacy. “These envoys can now call on rapidly deployable expertise on cease-fire negotiations, power-sharing, constitutional design, gender issues and other aspects of peace processes,” said Mr. Band, adding that UN regional offices in West Africa, Central Asia and Central Africa act as forward platforms for preventive work.“We have worked hard to bridge the gap between the political and development arms of the United Nations to more effectively address drivers of conflict,” he said. The Organization had also helped to solidly embed the Responsibility to Protect in its normative framework. While those efforts have yielded concrete results – from Kenya to Kyrgyzstan, the UN has kept tensions from escalating, and it was accompanying difficult transition processes in Guinea, Yemen and Somalia – “we are reminded on a daily basis that prevention has limits and shortcomings,” he said citing situations in Syria, Mal, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Central African Republic “Our efforts in preventive diplomacy are hampered by sovereignty concerns of Member States and fears of external interference,” Mr. Pan said, stressing that preventive action can only succeed when the international community speaks with one voice. Divisions in the Security Council or in approaches among organizations can undermine the effectiveness of mediators. He noted that early warning also remains a challenge. Social media are helping the United Nations to take the pulse of a country or a situation. “But we have also been caught unprepared. And we need to improve our ability to engage preventively in fragile countries where we have only a development presence, as was the case in Sri Lanka,” he said. Concluding, he said that Mr. Hamburg’s work has enabled the international community to make quantum leaps in its approach to addressing armed conflict. “As the title of his new book puts it, he is helping us all to ‘Give Peace a Chance’” the Secretary-General said. read more

The eight-year-old is the perfect example of the culturally diverse area of Marrickville with a Greek mother and an Irish Australian father.

82 will check an organisations benefits package when job hunting

first_imgMore than three quarters (82%) of employee respondents will check an organisation’s benefits package when job hunting, according to research by Jobsite.Its survey of 1,000 UK employees and 500 employers also found that 34% of employer respondents view benefits as an important recruitment tool.The research also found:72% of employee respondents would be more motivated and likely to stay at an organisation if offered an attractive benefits package.62% of employer respondents believe they offer a good benefits package, and 47% of employee respondents agree.20% of employee respondents feel their benefits package is poor.Just under half (49%) of employee respondents would sacrifice £115 a month for benefits that would contribute to a better work-life balance.93% of employee respondents and 95% of employer respondents believe having flexibility in the workplace makes staff feel more trusted and valued.25% of employer respondents are worried about the effect flexible working will have on staff productivity.41% of female employee respondents value their benefits package at £50 or less a year.29% of male employee respondents value their benefits at more than £500 a year, compared to 17% of female employee respondents.52% of employee respondents name increased annual leave as their top benefit, followed by an enhanced pension scheme (48%), flexible working (45%), and private healthcare (34%).Nick Gold, chief executive officer at Jobsite, said: “The discrepancy between businesses and employees in attitude towards benefits is very surprising. It’s yet another indication of the new modern working culture, in which employees are looking for flexibility in their working life and remuneration.“Businesses need to adopt this culture and recognise that offering a strong benefits package is an excellent way of attracting and retaining the best talent. A modern approach to this is creating a flexible ‘shopping list’ style of package, allowing employees to decide which benefits offer the most value to them as individuals.”last_img read more

Splatoon playable without a Wii U thanks to impressive Minecraft mod

first_imgNintendo’s latest effort to get gamers interested in and buying the Wii U is the third-person shooter called Splatoon. The game is receiving great reviews, with an average score of 81 on Metacritic since its launch late last month. However, Nintendo is not going to be happy to see that Splatoon is already playable without a Wii U thanks to a very impressive Minecraft mod by SethBling.The aim of Splatoon is for two opposing teams to cover a level in ink. The team that covers more of a level in ink when a set time limit is reached wins the game. Players fire ink in their team color, but must change to a squid form in order to replenish their ink supply as well as unlocking the ability to climb up walls or through grates wherever their ink color is present.As you can see in the video below, Splatoon in Minecraft has implemented all of the mechanics from Nintendo’s original game:I doubt Nintendo will choose to ignore this because of just how popular Minecraft is with its core audience of children. It also helps that Minecraft is owned by Microsoft, who will at least engage Nintendo in conversation if they choose to complain about the mod.Personally, I don’t think this will impact sales of Splatoon very much. Kids already with a Wii U at home will want to play Splatoon, and they will urge their friends to buy it, too. They may also play the Minecraft version, but however good it is, it’s always going to be more clunky than the Nintendo original.What we should focus on here is just how impressive the modding community is within Minecraft, and how much scope there is for creativity in Minecraft. I wonder what they’ll produce next?last_img read more

There will be a plugin Hybrid Jeep Wrangler in 2020

first_imgThe Jeep Wrangler, the car most people are probably thinking of when they hear about “a Jeep,” will take a leap forward into the world of alternative powertrains in 2020 when it gets a plug-in hybrid variant. The PHEV version of the Wrangler was announced at the LA Auto Show this week (via Roadshow) alongside an EcoDiesel and standard gas versions.There’s not much additional information out there yet regarding the plug-in Jeep, except that it could borrow from the hybrid version of the Chrysler Pacifica, which offers a fully electric range of 33 miles and an overall efficiency rating of 32 miles per gallon. Maybe you could stick with electric drive for the commute, and only dip into your gas reserves when you’re hitting the off-road trails for the weekend.This is definitely a bit of a departure for the tried and true Wrangler brand identity, but automakers are increasingly looking for places in the lineup where use of EV and hybrid drivetrains make sense, from both a consumer and a manufacturer’s perspective.last_img read more
