Fresh Effort Needed for Refugee Support

first_img By Daily NK – 2009.12.03 5:52pm News Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak News News AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article? Contact us at [email protected] [imText1]The treatment of physical and psychological disorders should be prioritized in order to increase the labor power of North Korean refugees in South Korea and to foster their economic independence.A professor of social work at Daegu University, Kim Yeon Hee believes, “The influence of not only mental health issues resulting from a variety of violent and traumatic incidents, but also addictive behaviors such as alcoholism arising in their aftermath, on the ability of refugees to lead self-supporting lives is huge.” Kim was talking at “A Special Symposium for the Era of 20,000 North Korean Breakaway Citizens,” an event on the 2nd sponsored by the National Human Rights Commission of Korea and the Center for North Korean Defectors. Professor Kim emphasized the importance of maintaining the health of refugees, saying, “The health condition of recent refugees who were in their childhood during the food shortage in the mid-1990s is known to be extremely weak. After being released from Hanawon, nutrition and illness-related health problems cause the condition of many to deteriorate, resulting in their incapacitation.”She contrasted the Korean situation with the U.S. refugee assistance systems, emphasizing that in the U.S. “interventionist measures regarding physical and mental health are actively implemented, and treatment to remove factors that can pose a handicap to refugees’ independence have become essential.”“The predominance of females among refugees in recent years means an influx of the most destitute population but, fortunately, most of the women are in their 20s~30s, which eliminates the dual factors of being a woman and advanced age. However, the number of female heads of household with young children is on the rise, resulting in a vulnerable situation where a majority remain economically inactive,” she went on. “Investment in human capital is important. In particular, diverse psychological and societal educational support services and mid-way drop-out prevention programs are critical anti-poverty policies which can guard against a vicious cycle of poverty,” she elaborated.Lee Ki Young, a professor of social work at Pusan University, explained, “After allowing the admission and resettlement of refugees, the U.S. focuses on their employment and economic success, and the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) under the federal government has organized a taskforce for promoting the economic independence of refugees. In South Korea, self-support and independence are proposed as the items of utmost priority.”But he pointed out, “In South Korea, where even low-level employment isn’t guaranteed for the refugees, whether or not to pursue an early stage policy for promoting independence such as in the U.S. should be carefully considered. In particular, many North Korean breakaway citizens have debts after using brokers before entering South Korea, so their actual economic situation is quite precarious and they have a high desire for an income to bring in additional family members, but it is difficult to find ideal results from work.”“In South Korea’s case… employment aid programs which provide opportunities for one to climb in the workplace, as well as institutional supplements that can guarantee the integrity and increase the gains from employment, should be strengthened,” he proposed.Additionally, “We have to make an effort so that the localization of resettlement support can be achieved. To achieve this, three-way collaboration between central government, provincial governing bodies and civilian organizations should be strengthened, and budgetary distribution and work responsibilities ought to be effectively realized.”Lee Geum Soon, a senior researcher at the Korea Institute for National Unification, agreed, “The number of North Korean breakaway citizens differs significantly by region, so it is important, at the very least, to build a system which allows the provision of standardized service unrelated to the refugees’ region of resettlement,” he asserted, “There has been interest from central ministries and offices at the policy level, and even institutional supplements are in place, but interest among regional units has to increase.” RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img Facebook Twitter There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China Fresh Effort Needed for Refugee Support News SHARElast_img read more

Canadian credit quality unchanged despite increased cash holdings: Moody’s

When bond ratings slip, investors shrug With bond yields low and rising, what is the price of safety? Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Canada has fared better than other developed economies since the credit crisis, notes Moody’s vice president and senior credit officer Darren Kirk. However, it cautions that weak economic conditions in Europe, slowing growth in key emerging markets such as China, and the sluggish US economy, along with the persistent strength of the Canadian dollar, will weigh on the performance of non-financial corporates in the coming year. And, elevated domestic household debt in Canada represents another downside risk for the domestic economy, it says; adding that revised numbers show a debt to income ratio that is higher than previously estimated, and high relative to other advanced economies. “Although we expect household debt to grow more slowly through 2013, aided by tougher mortgage conditions,” Kirk says, “the pressure from lower consumer spending could intensify if new housing activity or house prices decline significantly from their current robust levels.” Moody’s notes that limited free cash flow will hinder improvement in Canadian non-financial corporates’ key financial metrics in 2013, with the median growth rate coming in under 5%. “Nevertheless, for the most part company balance sheets are strong enough to deal with external shocks,” it says. Credit quality for Canadian non-financial companies is expected to remain stable in 2013, says Moody’s Investors Service in a new report. The rating agency says that the stable outlook for Canadian non-financial companies is underpinned by its expectation for real GDP growth of between 2% and 3% during the year.

What could follow end of BoC’s stimulus measures

first_img IE Staff “Of course, during that time, the U.S. Federal Reserve was buying large volumes of Treasury securities and [mortgage-backed securities] to ease financial conditions in its battered economy,” the report said. Keywords Economy,  Coronavirus,  Bond,  Monetary policyCompanies CIBC, Bank of Canada Catastrophe bond market gains momentum With bond yields low and rising, what is the price of safety? When the economic support provided by the Bank of Canada’s quantitative easing (QE) program ends, will Canada experience a spike in bond yields and borrowing costs?A report from CIBC Economics on Thursday provides evidence that it won’t. Share this article and your comments with peers on social media On the negative side, if Canada’s QE program is less powerful than many may assume, that also means the BoC can’t easily combat the effects of a rise in global term premiums, the report said.So, Canada’s long-term bond yields will be largely influenced by decisions being made by other central banks, particularly the Federal Reserve.“Fortunately, we see [the BoC] maintaining much of their current stimulus for some time,” the report said.While a modest increase in long-term bond yields can be expected in 2021, “the Canadian economy will be healing and better able to absorb that type of blow,” it concluded.For full details, read the report from CIBC Economics. a man on a precipice iStock Household debt-to-income ratio fell in first quarter: Statscan Related news As part of its pandemic response, the Bank of Canada (BoC) introduced a QE program, buying government bonds to support the market and provide monetary stimulus.The program has coincided with a significant decline in Government of Canada (GoC) long-term bond yields. Yet, the BoC’s bond purchases “likely wield far less power than is currently being assigned to them by some observers,” the CIBC report said.That could be considered a good thing, as QE may have to taper by mid-2021.The BoC is on track to own about 40% of the GoC bond market by the end of 2021’s first quarter, the report said, and market dysfunction is a potential risk at 50% ownership.A QE taper likely won’t lead to “severe” tightening of financial conditions, particularly if other larger central banks maintain their bond-purchasing volumes, theCIBC report argued.That’s because longer-term GoC bond yields are heavily influenced by global factors and domestic developments that have little to do with supply and demand in the bond market, the report said.For example, the report considered the term-premium component of the 10-year GoC bond yield. It noted that from January to March this year, the term premium fell by about the same magnitude as that of its U.S. counterpart.“It can be reasoned that the decline in Canada was the result of a largely global phenomenon, particularly since the Bank of Canada didn’t announce its bond-buying program until almost the end of [March], with purchases beginning even later,” the report said.“Moreover, such synchronous moves have been observed in the past when the Bank of Canada was inactive and not expected to make any changes in policy,” it added.The report described the years following the 2008 financial crisis when the drop in term premium of the 10-year GoC bond yield was also similar to that of the 10-year U.S. Treasury — and that drop occurred despite an increasing supply of government bonds in Canada and no domestic QE program.

Your student government: Welcome back Buffs

first_imgBy the University of Colorado Student GovernmentYou are about to embark or continue on a life-changing adventure along with astronauts, actors, politicians, writers, engineers, people who are going to change the future; and you will be immersed in resources, opportunities, and brain trusts strong enough to facilitate your mark on this world.  As a Buff, you have the opportunity to grow and explore through a vast and dynamic myriad of organizations, clubs, and programs across CU.Your RAs, professors and advisors will relentlessly tell you time and time again that students who get involved in the CU community beyond the classroom have overall higher GPAs (as well as far more interesting Instagrams), and CUSG should definitely be at the top of your list of organizations.The CU Student Government (CUSG) is one of the largest and most autonomous student governments in the country. We allocate and implement over $27 million in student fees across cost centers, programs and student groups every year. CUSG is run for the students, by the students, and impacts every single Buff throughout their time in Boulder. The student resources, or “cost centers”, under CUSG’s direct purview include the massive Recreation Center, the Environmental Center, the GLBTQ Resource Center, the Women’s Resource Center, the Volunteer Resource Center, the UMC , the Cultural Events Board , and KVCU (Radio 1190) among many others. CUSG also serves as a fierce advocate for Buffs, student voice to the CU administration, and leads lobbying efforts at the state capitol with legislation directly affecting university students. If you’re a first-year student, make sure to pay special attention to the CU Student Government Freshman Council, which will be accepting applications early this fall. Freshman Council members work closely with executive staff on high priority programs including Homecoming, elections, and legislative affairs, as well as craft events of their own. Members chosen for this program have the unique opportunity to shadow executives and legislators for an entire year, and gain skill-building (and resume-building) experiences.The resource centers CUSG fund and oversee create programs and communities that are responsible for shaping four years of Boulder not just into an education, but an experience. Each cost center is run by a board comprised of students from a wide range of majors, and freshman are highly encouraged to apply for board member seats. This summer, the Student Group Funding Board began interviewing applicants for positions, and throughout August and September, Finance Board, Air Board, the REC Board, and the Legislative Affairs Commission will also be looking for dedicated freshman board members.Follow CUSG on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date with all the programs, events, and opportunities your student leaders are working on throughout the year.

Los Angeles Police Department gets approval for drone use

first_img Comments are closed. HomeBriefsLos Angeles Police Department gets approval for drone use Sep. 13, 2019 at 5:05 amBriefsNewsLos Angeles Police Department gets approval for drone useGuest Author2 years agodroneslos angeles police departmentThe Daily News The Los Angeles Police Department has won permanent permission to fly drones.The Daily News reports the Police Commission on Tuesday voted 5-0 to allow the LAPD to use the small, remote-controlled aircraft on a regular basis.A year-long test of the drones ended in July.The newspaper says the commission’s vote allows LAPD to move forward with its drone program, but officers will be limited in how they can use them.They can only be deployed in a strict set of scenarios — hostage situations, bomb squad responses, active shooter responses and other immediately dangerous incidents. Top SWAT commanders also must approve each drone use.Privacy advocates fear that “mission creep” eventually could lead to armed drones and aircraft spying on the public.Associated PressTags :droneslos angeles police departmentThe Daily Newsshare on Facebookshare on Twittershow 1 comment September 15, 2019 at 6:34 PM It will be interesting to read and find out if LAPD is going to adhere to the FAA’s Part 107, for the use of their drone(s). Also, for the people that fear if LAPD could armed drones, that is something that only the Federal Government has strong restrictions on, and as far as I am aware, only the military and other DoD entities have access too. No one else.Now, that isn’t to say that John Doe can’t modify the drone to and for making it an armed drone. But doing so would violate Federal Law and therefore be committing a felony in doing so.Also, the FAA has many restrictions on U.S. Air Space, and as of this moment and time it is still a work-in-progress to and for enforcement of the Air Space, so it will be interesting to see their maps of where they can fly and cannot fly. Again, the FAA has control over the air space and not LAPD, or other local governing entities.I feel that overall the use of drones can help law enforcement in so many ways. But also, in the wrong hands, or unscrupulous individuals, drones can be used for many wrong reasons. A good checks and balances would be for all entities to have flight logs of their drones, and the purpose of flying a drone on a specific area. By having these checks and balances the Public could be more accepting in the use of drones in or near their areas too.

News / Contship Italia volumes decline in 2017, but rail freight traffic is on the up

first_img By Gavin van Marle 24/01/2018 Contship Italia group president Cecilia Eckelmann-Battistello said there was a change in the dybamic for port operators.She said: “2017 was a challenging year for the maritime industry, especially the reorganisation of liner alliances which has significantly changed the environment. More and more the focus has shifted from port performance to supply chain performance with Contship’s intermodal product, Hannibal, being able to record increased transport volumes compared with the year before.”This growth came despite the two-month Rastatt closure, which meant 181 fewer trains operating between Italy and western Europe compared with 2016, and hit the group’s Rail Hub Milano.Nonetheless, rail volumes increased by 11% to breach the 300,000 teu mark.“Contship continues to work hard to provide the market with fully integrated and competitive port-to-door services by deploying innovative solutions and strong inland connections with expected further growth in Italy and over the Alps,” Ms Eckelmann-Battistello added. © Francesco Cimatocenter_img Leading Italian container terminal and intermodal operator Contship Italia today reported a 1.3% decline in terminal throughput last year.This was largely as a result of changes in transhipment patterns, but the carrier managed to post a double-digit increase in rail freight volumes, despite disruption caused by the two-month Rastatt closure.The company, which operates the largest network of box facilities in the Mediterranean, saw total transhipment volumes across its three main hubs of Gioia Tauro, Cagliari and Tangier Med decline by 6.8% – although the drops were recorded at the Italian ports, while Eurogate Med saw throughput grow from 1.17m teu in 2016 to 1.44m teu last year.In contrast, its flagship gateway terminal at La Spezia and the emrging southern Italian gateway of Salerno both recorded increases. La Spezia increased volumes from 1.17m teu to 1.38m teu. In total, it said its gateway facilities “with access to Italy, south and central Europe continued to increase” by 13.2%.last_img read more

DFCS Rolls Out Mandatory Overtime To Address Thousands Of Backlogged Investigations

first_img Legal Advocate Discusses Medical Abuse At Shut Down Georgia ICE Facility For Whom The Bell Rings 1:05 | Play story Add to My ListIn My List ‘It’s Fractured’: Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan On Healing Republican Party Related Stories Share Georgia Division of Family and Children Services Interim Director Bobby Cagle Tuesday called for mandatory overtime to deal with thousands of overdue investigations.DFCS is currently facing a backlog of 3,300 overdue child protective services investigations — about 50 percent of the division’s total caseload — according a statement released by the Department of Human Services.As heard on the radio.1:05Cagle Wednesday said to address that backlog, he’s ordered not only case workers, but also qualified administrative employees to pick up case work.“I’ve called all hands on deck and have said, you know, ‘I want you in those counties investigating those cases and to do overtime in order to accomplish that with the goal of having that completed by the end of July,’” he said.Effective immediately, those investigating cases will work a minimum of eight hours of overtime per week until the thousands of backlogged cases are addressed.Agency policy requires investigations be completed within 45 days unless circumstances call for more time, a time fram Cagle said is reasonable.Cagle said  the state will stray slightly from the current overtime policy and pay salaried employees for overtime, rather than give them compensatory time off.“You get into a situation where the workload is such that you can’t take the time off. So we think the fairest thing to do here is to allow people to get the pay for what they’re doing right now,” he said.The newly named interim director, who took office just last week, said the division can afford the extra pay and will be able to work within the money allocated to the division through the budget this year. He said he’s also received the necessary approvals from the state budget office to implement the plan.DHS attributes the backlog to an increase in the number of reports in the last year, while staffing has remained static. The average monthly number of reported cases has risen from about 6,600 to 8,400, according to the statement.Cagle said he expects to have the backlog mostly cleared by the end of July.Governor Nathan Deal has also promised 500 additional caseworkers over the next three years.              last_img read more
