SA condemns chemical weapons in Syria

first_img22 March 2013 South Africa has condemned the reported use of chemical weapons in the civil war in Syria earlier this week. “The alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria is of serious concern and would introduce an extremely dangerous element into the conflict, which is wholly unacceptable by any standard,” International Relations and Cooperation Deputy Minister Ebrahim Ebrahim said in a statement on Thursday. It was reported earlier this week that a missile containing a chemical substance was fired into a village in Allepo province, killing 31 people and injuring 100. Ebrahim said South Africa was “gravely concerned” about the serious escalation of the conflict in Syria. “We have consistently called on all the parties to the conflict to stop the violence as well as protect the rights of the Syrian population.” He said that since the beginning of the Syrian crisis, South Africa had condemned the abuse of human rights, in particular violations of the rights of vulnerable groups such as women and children. Weapons of mass destruction were particularly heinous because they targeted innocent civilians. All the parties to the current conflict had a responsibility to protect and preserve human rights. “South Africa reaffirms its commitment to the sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity of Syria. There is no military solution to the conflict,” Ebrahim said. “The only way to stop the further destruction of Syrian society is for the parties to come together in dialogue without delay.” He said any political transition needed to reflect the will of the Syrian people, adding that South Africa rejected any calls for forced regime change and outside military interference, or any action not in line with the Charter of the United Nations. “South Africa calls for restraint on the part of all parties to the conflict, and again emphasises the need for an immediate political settlement as expressed by the Geneva Joint Communique.” Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

It’s really just a matter of time on when they can compliment, especially that Rey (Nambatac) is being guarded heavily,” the mentor said.Showing that he’s an able finisher for Nambatac’s pick-and-roll plays, Ambohot impressed in the game as he fired a team-best 15 points, seven rebounds, and two blocks in the win.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool starsMore importantly, the 6-foot-5 big man limited the Generals’ towering Hamadou Laminou to just seven points in the tiff, negating the latter’s presence down low.But the 20-year-old center deflected the credit.

IPL 2019: Dinesh Karthik lauds KKR’s clinical effort with ball and bat

first_imgKolkata Knight Riders captain Dinesh Karthik Sunday praised his players for their all-round clinical effort in his side’s eight-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals in an IPL match but said they need to improve in certain aspects.”It was a pretty clinical effort, the bowlers bowled well and the batsmen backed it up well too,” Karthik said after the win.”In India, you get to play on a lot of slow surfaces and you need to adapt to them. We need to improve in a few situations, but that’s always the case,” he added.Asked about his side’s debutant Harry Gurney pacer who took two wickets for 25 runs, Karthik said, “Well Harry (Gurney) is a true professional, he’s played in leagues all over the world.”Gurney, on his part, said, “It was a pitch that suited my cutter options, so a nice one to make my debut on. I work hard on my variations and on my yorker and it is nice to have them in tough situations, although I didn’t use it much tonight.”I am working on a knuckle ball but I don’t think it’ll be ready during the IPL, maybe somewhere in the English summer.”KKR opener Chris Lynn, who scored 50, said, “I rode my luck again. But we knew we had to go hard in the powerplay. It slowed up as the innings progressed. It was a nice powerplay and we were in cruise control after that.”On the ball which he inside-edged but did not dislodge the bail after hitting the leg stump, he said, “I nicked it, so I thought I was gone one way or the other. It happens in T20 cricket.advertisementDebutant @gurneyhf is awarded the Man of the Match award for his bowling figures of 2/25 #RRvKKR pic.twitter.com/nu0iArlv4Y IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 7, 2019″Unbelievable (batting from Narine). He has done it for a couple of years now. We don’t talk too much. Just keep it simple. I am traditionally a slow starter. It is a long tournament, we are building nicely with important wins.”Rajasthan Royals captain Ajinkya Rahane rued that his side were short by 10-20 runs.”I think on this wicket 150-160 would have been good. We had runs on the board and a slower wicket. But, I don’t think we bowled to our plans. Lots of learning from this game though. Such things happen in cricket, we need to learn from our mistakes,” he said.”I think we should focus on playing good cricket and improve in the upcoming games. The wicket was going to be slow and we knew that, so we thought it was the right time to give him (Midhun) a game today.”Also Read | Unbelievable!

Church Leaders Urged to Help Promote Healthy Lifestyle Habits

first_imgStory Highlights He was speaking at a Physical Activity Forum for leaders of faith-based organisations at the Spanish Court Hotel in St. Andrew on (Friday) May 10. Minister of Health and Wellness, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, is calling on church leaders to partner with the Government on its healthy lifestyle promotion campaign in order to reduce the incidence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).“This partnership is very important. Too many of us are afflicted by various lifestyle ailments and diseases and that is reflected in the data (from) the hospitals,” the Minister said.He was speaking at a Physical Activity Forum for leaders of faith-based organisations at the Spanish Court Hotel in St. Andrew on (Friday) May 10.Citing statistics, Dr. Tufton said that one in three Jamaicans is hypertensive, one in eight is diabetic and one in two is obese or overweight.He noted that an average of 6, 000 Jamaicans die from cardiovascular diseases each year, 4,000 from cancer and another 7,000 are diagnosed with cancer.He argued that these conditions are preventable if people follow healthy lifestyle habits such as a balanced diet, daily exercise and have annual health checks.The Physical Activity Forum, under the theme:  ‘Love Yuh Body, Treat Yuh Body Right,’ was hosted by the Ministry to mark World Move for Health Day.The event promoted the importance of exercise as part of the larger ‘Jamaica Moves’ programme.Activities on the day included blood pressure and blood sugar tests, as well as nutrition displays, and the launch of a Physical Activity Bible.Director of Health Promotion and Education in the Ministry, Takese Foga, explained that the bible is an important resource developed by the Ministry as it seeks to use creative ways to engage the public in its healthy lifestyle initiative.“It is designed to support you all, as church leaders, in incorporating healthy activities into your services, into your programmes and into your activities. It is really a guide for you to use, just to give you some ideas,” Ms. Foga said.Data from the Jamaica Health and Lifestyle Survey 2016-17, indicated that only two per cent of persons were involved in high intensity physical activity; 16 per cent were engaged in moderate activity; and 82 per cent were found to be involved in low activity.World Move for Health Day is a global day of awareness and action to encourage persons to introduce physical activity as part of a lifestyle habit.The initiative was borne out of a 2002 World Health Report, which revealed that a large number of persons engaged in very limited physical activity.In 2010, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared physical inactivity as the fourth leading risk factor for global mortality.In Jamaica, this accounts for 12 per cent of mortality contributing to 13 per cent of breast cancer, 14 per cent of colon cancer, eight per cent of coronary heart disease, and 10 per cent of Type 2 diabetes.
