6 March 2013 South Africa is one of 178 countries gathered in Bangkok this week to decide how to improve the world’s wildlife trade regime, and to ensure the survival of threatened species. More than 2 000 delegates are attending the 16th Conference of Parties of the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) which started in Thailand’s capital on Monday. The CITES parties meet every three years to consider amendments to the appendices of the convention, to assess its implementation, and to make recommendations to improve its effectiveness. South Africa is hosting and participating in a number of side events during the conference, three of which will focus on rhino matters, including conservation, safety and security, and rhino economics and trade. The Department of Environmental Affairs said that among the tabled proposals at the conference is a proposal to up-list the rhino due to poaching, from which several countries have suffered, including South Africa. “This would have widespread implications for South Africa’s white rhino population including the creation of disincentives for the private sector,” the department said. It said that central to South Africa’s conservation model was an “undisputed record” of having brought species populations to healthy recovery. Among these were the white and black rhino, which had come close to extinction almost a century ago. Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa said last week that efforts to protect the country’s rhino population were aimed not just at protecting a species from extinction, but at securing and conserving all South Africa’s natural resources. “The fact that the criminal syndicates involved in rhino poaching also undertake other crimes means that this current situation can be considered a national security risk. “It is therefore imperative that the national response be comprehensive, as it threatens not only the sustainable development path of the country, but also the heritage of future generations.” Ahead of the conference, Molewa met with representatives of the Chinese and Vietnamese delegations to discuss issues of mutual cooperation in the field of biodiversity, particularly the continued illegal trade in rhino horn. The department said the discussions had “confirmed the two countries’ willingness to continue to cooperate with South Africa in the areas of law enforcement in relation to illegal trade in wildlife species”. The talks with Vietnam established that the implementation plan stemming from the Memorandum of Understanding relating to Biodiversity conservation, signed between the two countries in December, would be signed and rolled out during the visit of a high-level Vietnamese delegation to South Africa in April. Discussions with China had centred on the finalisation of a memorandum of understanding, also to be signed in April. The Memorandum on Biodiversity Conservation also deals with illegal rhino hunting and will also be followed by an implementation plan, similar to that concluded with Vietnam. The department said it was also agreed that China and South Africa would ensure the immediate roll-out of technological innovations in the fight against wildlife crimes. The matter will also be further discussed within the Brazil, Russia, China and South Africa (BRICS) member countries at bilateral and multilateral levels. Source: SAnews.gov.za
Hello and welcome to the coverage from Day 2 of the first Test between Sri Lanka and India in Galle.ScorecardStumps: India are in the driver’s seat after the two wickets Ashwin and Mishra snared at the close of play. Sri Lanka were 5 for 2 and trail by 187 runs with Sangakkara and Dhammika at the crease. India have a great chance of wrapping up the Test inside three days and take lead in the series. Thanks for tuning in. India (1st innings):117.4 overs: India’s first innings has come to an end with Varun Aaron becoming Kaushal’s fifth scalp. The visitors were all out for 375 with a lead of 192 runs. 108.5 overs: Wriddhiman Saha pulls a short one from Pradeep to midwicket to bring up his maiden Test fifty. 103.4 overs: Out. Amit Mishra comes down the track but misses and gets castled by Kaushal, who gets his fourth wicket. India have been losing wickets but the lead has extended past 150. 99.2 overs: Out. Harbhajan Singh shuffles across the crease and misses as Kaushal castles him. India 331 for 7. 95 overs: Rangana Herath comes back to the attack and there is some turn for the left-arm spinner as he squares up Harbhajan Singh twice. India 312 for 6. 91 overs (Tea): The Sri Lankans did well in the second session to pull back things and thanks to the offspinner Kaushal. He struck in quick succession by dismissing Kohli and Rahane and that is when the hosts bounced back. India were 304 for 6 and lead by 121 runs. 89.5 overs: Out. Nuwan Pradeep gets his second wicket as he castles R Ashwin with a full pitched delivery. The delivery after pitching swung in a bit and Ashwin going for the drive completely missed. advertisementRavi Ashwin is the new man in. Can he deliver with the bat this time? 87.6 overs: Out. Dhawan departs. Nuwan Pradeep gets his first wicket. The new ball does the trick. The left-hander drags one onto his stumps and makes the long walk back. It has been an excellent effort from the Indian opener. India 294 for 5. 81 overs: After two wickets, the Sri Lankan spinners have started to look threatening and captain Mathews persisting with two spinners. India 270 for 4.75.2 overs: Out. Kaushal strikes again to dismiss Ajinkya Rahane for a duck. Tossed up by Kaushal and Rahane half forward in his defense gets trapped infront of the wickets. 73.6 overs: Kohli exits after reaching to his hundred, falls on 103 trapped lbw by offspinner Kaushal. India 255 for 3 and lead by 73 runs. 73.2 overs: Virat Kohli drives Kashal through the covers to bring up his 11th Test hundred. He raises his bat and the dressing room applauds the hundred. 62.6 overs (Lunch): That will be lunch on day two with India on 227 for 2 and a lead of 44 runs with Dhawan and Kohli unbeaten on 110 and 86 respectively. The first session completely belonged to the tourists with Dhawan and Kohli stitching together an unbeaten stand of 199 runs. 56.6 overs: Dhawan drives through the covers and gets to his century, his fourth in Test cricket. The left-hander looked at ease right from the start of his innings and also was supported well by skipper Kohli at the other end. 47 overs: The scoreboard has been ticking but nothing in boundaries as Kohli and Dhawan are being contended with singles and twos. Rangana Herath not getting the expected turn off the track. India 159 for 2. 37.4 overs: Virat Kohli taps one to the midwicket for a single to bring up his fifty off 90 balls. Both the batsmen have made quiet start to the morning. India 140 for 2.Day 1 round-up: Offspinner Ravichandran Ashwin spun a web around Sri Lankan batsmen with a six-wicket haul as India dismissed the hosts for a paltry 183 in the first innings to gain the upperhand on the opening day. India’s premier spinner recorded his best overseas figures of 6 for 46 in 13.4 overs to trigger a collapse that saw the islanders being shot out in just 49.4 overs in their first innings after skipper Angelo Mathews opted to make first use on a track that had turn on offer on the first day itself.At stumps, India looked in command as they reached 128 for 2 after opener KL Rahul (7) and Rohit Sharma (9) were dismissed cheaply. Shikhar Dhawan seemed to continue from where he left off in Bangladesh as he stroked his way to an unbeaten 53 while skipper Virat Kohli looked supremely confident during his undefeated knock of 45.India are only 55 runs short of Sri Lanka’s first innings total and will be looking to build a sizeable lead on a pitch that is offering substancial turn at times. The first day panned out exactly in the manner that skipper Kohli might have wanted it to be.advertisementIshant Sharma (1 for 30 in 11 overs) bowled a good opening spell where he hit the deck hard to extract disconcerting bounce. One such delivery that took off from short of good length saw left-hander Dimuth Karunaratne (9) fend it awkwardly as Ajinkya Rahane took a simple of catch running forward from gully. Kaushal Silva (5) was a touch unlucky after Shikhar Dhawan earlier dropped a dolly at first slip off Varun Aaron’s (1 for 68 in 11 overs) bowling. But this time was ball that was dug short which Silva wanted to pull but hit his arm guard as Dhawan ran back to dive and take a catch. The replays showed that umpire Nigel Llong got it wrong.Once Ashwin was brought into the attack in the 12th over, he completely stamped his supremacy on the islanders. Kumar Sangakkara (5) had a forgettable first innings in his penultimate Test match as he tried to push one off-break off the back-foot which saw young Rahul take a sharp catch at silly point.With Sri Lanka reduced to 27 for 3, it became increasingly difficult for them to claw their way back into the game.
Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator the Hon. A.J. Nicholson, says Cuba has been and continues to be “a most valued and highly respected brother on the Latin American and Caribbean landscape and beyond”. He praised Cuba’s invaluable assistance and co-operation towards developing countries, despite the country’s difficulties and challenges. The Minister was speaking at a reception to mark Cuba’s National Day, held on January 16 at the Cuban Ambassador’s residence in Kingston. Senator Nicholson said that Jamaica owes a debt of gratitude for the continuous support rendered to the country by Cuba in the fields of education, health, agriculture and culture. Meanwhile, Cuba’s Ambassador, Yuri Gala Lopez, said his country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is expected to increase to 3.7 per cent in 2013. “Despite the tensions associated with the global economic and financial crisis and other external challenges, the Cuban economy was expected to close in 2012 with a 3.1 per cent growth of its Gross Domestic Product. For 2013, Cuba foresees a 3.7 GDP growth,” Ambassador Gala said. The Ambassador said Cuba is gradually recovering from the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy in October. He pointed out that Cuba continues to enjoy diplomatic relations with over 180 countries, and that “we keep receiving the moral support of many governments and peoples of the world in our denunciation of the five decade-old blockade.” The Ambassador informed the large gathering that Cuba will assume chairmanship of the 33-country Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) at a CELAC-European Union summit in Chile at the end of this month. The function was also attended by Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller; former Prime Minister, P.J. Patterson; and members of the Diplomatic Corps.
APTN National NewsA new fight is brewing along B.C.’s coastal waters over Ottawa’s plans to open up a commercial fishery for herring.As APTN‘s Tina House reports, First Nations are saying that move could potentially wipe out the entire herring stock.
OTTAWA — Senators are to resume a special sitting today to examine a back-to-work bill that would force an end to rotating strikes at Canada Post as the walkouts enter their sixth week.Bill C-89 was debated in the upper chamber on Saturday after the Liberal government fast-tracked the legislation through the House of Commons.But despite an initial plan to continue debate — and possibly hold a vote — on Sunday, senators chose instead to give themselves an extra day to digest hours of witness testimony on the labour dispute.A Senate official says final debate on the legislation is expected to begin by mid-afternoon (2 p.m. ET), likely followed by an early evening vote.The bill could receive royal assent and become law a short time later, which would force striking postal workers back to work by noon on Tuesday.However, the legislation could be delayed by a number of factors, such as amendments.Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers said their negotiators remained at the bargaining table Sunday, hoping to reach contract agreements in advance of the bill’s passage.Negotiations have been underway for nearly a year, but the dispute escalated more recently when CUPW members launched rotating strikes Oct. 22.Those walkouts have led to backlogs of mail and parcel deliveries at the Crown corporation’s main sorting plants in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.Picket lines were up Sunday at Canada Post facilities in northern Ontario, as well as in parts of British Columbia.CUPW vowed to continue the walkouts Monday to back its contract demands.The union wants better pay and job security, guaranteed hours for its 8,000 rural and suburban carriers, and equality for those workers with the corporation’s 42,000 urban employees.CUPW also wants Canada Post to adopt rules that it says would cut down on workplace injuries — an issue the union has said is now at a “crisis” level.The union’s national president has called the back-to-work bill a slap in the faces of Canada Post employees and accused Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of turning his back on postal workers.“We condemn this hypocritical act by a government that promised to defend workers’ rights, claimed to stand for equality for women, and claimed to stand for expanding and defending the middle class,” Mike Palecek said in a weekend statement on the union’s website.“It’s unacceptable for any government to violate workers’ charter rights.”Palecek said the union would decide this week how to fight the back-to-work bill once it becomes law, adding “all options” were on the table.The former Conservative government forced an end to a lockout of postal workers during a 2011 dispute by enacting back-to-work legislation, which was later declared by a court to be unconstitutional.But the Liberal government’s bill is “different,” Labour Minister Patty Hajdu said shortly after the legislation was tabled in the Commons, in that it does not impose immediate outcomes affecting postal contracts.The legislation would give a mediator-arbitrator appointed by the government 90 days to try and reach contract settlements. Failing that, a settlement could be imposed either through a decision from the arbitrator or by choosing from one of the final proposals put forward by Canada Post or CUPW.Once enacted, Bill C-89 would impose fines of between $1,000 and $50,000 per day on anyone found in contravention of the Act, and up to $100,000 per day against Canada Post or the union if they are found guilty of violating its terms.Canada Post said it expected to make about 30,000 deliveries of parcels to Canadians over the past two days — a far cry from the 500,000 deliveries that a company spokesman said was normal for a late-November weekend.“Weekend deliveries occur during the holidays to keep pace and balance the workload through the week,” said Jon Hamilton.“In 2017 we delivered 3.6 million parcels on holiday weekends.” Terry Pedwell, The Canadian Press
Ha Nam (Vietnam): Voicing concern over the growing menace of terrorism, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu said on Sunday that the proponents of ideologies of hate need to be “constructively engaged” to avoid mindless death and destruction. In his keynote address at the 16th UN Day of Vesak here, Naidu said the genesis of conflict among nations has roots in the idea of hate and violence originating from an individual’s mind-space. Vesak, also known as Buddha Jayanti, is traditionally observed by Buddhists as ‘Buddha’s Birthday’.

The proponents of ideologies of hate need to be constructively engaged to avoid mindless death and destruction,” Naidu said at the event attended by Vietnam Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Myanmar President Win Myint and Nepal Premier K P Sharma Oli among others. Naidu said Lord Buddha’s message of peace and compassion provides an ideology and effective answer to overcome sectarian and ideology-driven violence all over the world. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroad”The global leadership more than ever needs to work together to promote dialogue, harmony and justice, based on compassion and wisdom. We need to create a more positive environment of peace by agreeing to work together to uphold the ideals of Lord Buddha and promote values of peace, accommodation, inclusiveness and compassion in the policies and conduct of the global community,” he said. The Vice President said India’s vision has been of a world as one large family and its dreams have been woven around the theme of peaceful co-existence. He said there is a clear recognition that there can be no sustainable development without peace and no peace without sustainable development. Noting that Buddhism’s great contribution is its balanced approach, Naidu said if global leadership can adopt this approach, it is possible to avoid conflict, reconcile different viewpoints and achieve consensus. It can also steer individuals away from bigotry, dogmatism and fanaticism to a more balanced view of life essential for peaceful co-existence, he added.
