first_img…to be deliberated at UN General Council MeetingNew Global Human Order (NGHO) – an initiative piloted by the late Dr Cheddi Jagan in 1994, which has found favour with over 160 countries across the globe, will in a matter of days come up for deliberation and a possible vote and call to action, at the world’s highest forum – the United Nations General Assembly, as it meets for its 71st General Council Meeting.Dr. Cheddi JaganThe People’s Progressive Party (PPP), the political party that Dr Jagan founded, this past week called on the current Administration to recognise the importance of the NGHO at the UN General Assembly and to put its full weight behind the initiative when the matter holds the attention of world leaders once again.This was the clarion call by former Ambassadors, Ministers, President and other dignitaries when they met at the National Library this past weekend for a public gathering to discuss, ahead of the UN General Assembly’s confab, Guyana’s position on the matter in light of the fact that Dr Jagan’s party was now in Opposition.‘Baby … bathwater’PPP General Secretary Clement Rohee addressing the modest gathering at the National Library on Friday evening urged that the current A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Government “not throw out the baby with the bathwater”.In attendance were former Ambassador to Brazil, Merlin Udho; former Ambassador to Cuba, Mitra Devi Ali, brother of the late Dr Walter Rodney, Lawrence Rodney; former Prime Minister Samuel Hinds; former Junior Finance Minister Juan Edghill and a host of other high-profile PPP/Civic figures in addition to the current Russian and Chilean Plenipotentiary Representatives to Guyana.Dr Jagan’s NGHO was first publicised in 1994 following his ascension to office. He called for a different approach in the relationships between the developed and the developing countries.Rohee, in his presentation to the gathering, said his party had been pushed into posing the question to Parliament and was told by Vice President Carl Greenidge that “Government will continue to pursue issue as we move forward,” but not before saying that the initiative had essentially expired and had been overtaken by time.Rohee said that it was this uncertainty in the responses provided by Government that caused the Party to hold the public forum to remind of the importance of the Guyanese initiative despite of the political party in office.Caricom supportHe said the Vice President’s answer was “good news on paper”, but urged that the Party members not sit on their “laurels” and be complacent.He said the PPP has already written to members of Caricom, reminding of the importance of the occasion and again calling for their support.According to Rohee, “We thought it would be useful to have this (Public) forum to discuss the matter, precisely because of this session of the UN General Assembly.”He questioned, “…how could an important matter like this be up for discussion on the highest forum in the world and the country that has proposed that this matter be on the agenda remain silent?”Still relevantAddressing the primarily PPP supporters gathered in the National Library, Rohee conceded that aspects of Dr Jagan’s NGHO would have to be refined since it was always proposed as an agreement between countries that had been crafted some time ago that recognised the need for continuous reviews.He argued nonetheless that the main tenets of the agreement were still relevant in today’s reality—moreso now.Disorder“This is an evolving concept,” Rohee said, even as he spoke to its relevance in the 21st Century, since according to him, the world has been plunged into a state of disorder.Speaking directly to the response provided by Government, Rohee said, “I agree, I fully support the idea that this work can be revised, can be edited, but I don’t agree we throw out the baby with bathwater…the concept is still relevant in today’s world.”He said what might have been applicable in 1994 may not be applicable in 2016, but as the situation evolved “obviously the necessary changes will have to be made”. Rohee nonetheless expressed optimism that the concept advanced by his Party’s founder which had found favour with Caricom, the Commonwealth and further afield including the RIO Group would in fact be represented seriously at the UN forum.CopenhagenDr Walter Rodney’s brother, Lawrence, who filled in for former Ambassador Rudy Insanally –initially slated to speak – also spoke to the importance of the NGHO, to not just Guyana but the world at large.He reminded that in 1995 when the late President launched the initiative at Copenhagen, he was the only Third World leader to be given a standing ovation and subsequently invited to give presentations across the European territories.Rodney also conceded that the Jagan initiative was not a stand-alone process and had found favour with more than 160 countries, given its merits.He said Dr Jagan’s NGHO, as presented to the world, “was a comprehensive strategy for a new kind of social partnership” between countriesAccording to Rodney, the NGHO had been crafted at a time when the world had just come out of the Cold War and the United States “was behaving like a nuclear bully”.He said it was a time too when the world had come to begin to realise the disparaging effects of the disparities that existed and continue to exist across the globe and the need for a different approach to remedy the state of affairs given the dire consequences that have become more pronounced today.New World OrderRodney and each of the other presenters spoke to the fact that the threats of terrorism, the refugee crisis and many of the other human catastrophes across the planet were as a result of the inequalities that Dr Jagan had recognised and was attempting to remedy.He spoke to the fact too that Dr Jagan’s NGHO had also taken cognisance of environmental strategies and ideas – so pronounced now given the climate change phenomena.According to Rodney, Dr Jagan’s initiative was well researched and analysed which is why it has managed to gain the respect of world leaders hence its place on the UN Agenda.First published in 1994, Dr Jagan’s initiative was officially taken on as a UN resolution in 2000 and over the years, has been reviewed garnering support over time from more and more countriesThe concept of the New Global Human Order calls for a people-centred sustainable development policy and programme aimed at the eradication of poverty and the establishment of a just and more humane system of international relations.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest On March 11, a group of Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association members will embark on a 12-day market study mission of Brazil, a major U.S.  competitor of international agricultural sales. The purpose of this mission is to gain a better understanding of Brazil’s role in the worldwide market of agriculture.“Our mission to Brazil is really about the piles of corn we have in the United States. We need to understand our competition in order to compete with them. We hope to dispel myths. A lot of folks feel like they are not as tech savvy as they really are in Brazil. This also provides the opportunity to get our growers to set foot on their farms and realize the obstacles they face down there,” said John Linder, an OCWGA member on the National Corn Growers Association’s Trade Policy and Biotechnology Action Team. “We look forward to talking with those farmers and we will get to talk to some people in the industry who make feed and other things like that. We also forget that we are selling a lot of wheat down there because of the problems in Argentina. It would be nice to be able to keep that market.”The in-person mission will allow the group to learn first-hand about the strengths and challenges of Brazil’s agricultural industry; make face-to-face connections with key buyers and end-users; and engage in important conversations about issues, such as GMO acceptance, sustainability, ethanol infrastructure, and grain storage. The information gained in this mission will be used to enhance ongoing efforts to build demand for Ohio’s corn and wheat.Those interested can follow the mission through a blog and YouTube channel at ocwmarketmission.wordpress.com.last_img read more

first_imgTags:#Browsers#Microsoft#NYT#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Microsoft just announced that it started work on Internet Explorer 9 three weeks ago. Steven Sinofsky, the president of Microsoft’s Windows and Windows Live division, showed an early build of IE9 during his PDC keynote today. In this presentation, Sinofsky announced that Microsoft will focus on support for new standards like HTML5 and CSS3, as well as developing a faster JavaScript rendering engine. Sinofsky candidly acknowledged that IE8 did not do well on the Acid3 test, though this early build of IE9 only scored a few points higher than IE8 (24 vs. 32).According to Sinofsky, there is still a lot of internal discussion about how much of HTML5 to support in IE9. HTML5 is still in its draft stage. Sinofsky did not say when the company plans to release IE9.JavaScript PerformanceToday’s presentation of IE9 was refreshing, as Sinofsky noted that IE8’s JavaScript performance was clearly slower than that of its competitors. The current build of IE9, however, has already closed this gap significantly and the difference in performance compared to the latest builds of Chrome and Firefox were only minor. As Microsoft notes, given how fast modern JavaScript engines have become over the last year, improvements in the JavaScript engine don’t influence real-world performance at this point and other browser sub-systems become the bottlenecks that impede improvements. Hardware Acceleration and Font SmoothingMicrosoft also plans to make use of DirectX-based hardware accelerated graphics and text in IE9. In his demo, Sinofsky showed that Bing maps can render about 14 frames per second in IE8. With hardware acceleration in IE9 turned on, he got 60 frames per second. In addition, this technology will also increase font quality and readability in IE9.VideosMicrosoft already published a number of videos with the engineers working on IE9 on Channel 9 (sorry, these are Silverlight only). frederic lardinoislast_img read more
