NEW YORK, N.Y. – Ikea relaunched a recall of 29 million chests and dressers in the U.S. and Canada Tuesday after the death of an eighth child.CEO Lars Petersson said Ikea wants to increase awareness of the recall campaign for several types of chest and dressers that can easily tip over if not properly anchored to a wall.The death of a California toddler, who was found trapped underneath an Ikea Malm dresser in May, has raised questions about whether Ikea has effectively spread the word about the recall, which was first announced in June 2016. The Swedish retailer and the federal safety regulators are asking customers to take immediate action to secure the dressers, or to return them.Petersson said Ikea has had an “extensive communication” campaign through social media, its website and television and print ads. The company emailed 13 million people about the recall two months ago, he said.Still, he said heightening awareness of the recall is necessary “because we think that it’s so important to reach as many people as possible.”Acting CPSC chairman Ann Marie Buerkle said that people who own the furniture can take care of any potential hazards by contacting Ikea.The recall, which applies only to customers in the U.S. and Canada, is for children’s chests and drawers taller than 23.5 inches and adult chests and dressers taller than 29.5 inches. Customers should contact Ikea for a free wall-mounting kit. The company is also offering to send crews to attach them in the home.Ikea is offering full refunds for anyone who no longer wants the furniture. Customers can bring them to a store, or Ikea will pick them up.At least eight children under the age of three have been killed when an Ikea dresser fell on them, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The first death occurred 28 years ago and the others occurred after 2002.The latest death was Jozef Dudek, 2, of Buena Park, California. The toddler had been put down for a nap when his father went in to check on him and found him under the dresser, according to details released by lawyers retained by the family.Alan Feldman, one of the lawyers representing the Dudek family, said Ikea’s recall has been “poorly publicized” and “ineffective in getting these defective and unstable dressers out of children’s bedrooms.”The same team of lawyers represented the families of three toddlers who died when Ikea dressers fell on them. Ikea reached a $50 million settlement with the families last December.Petersson said that more than 1 million dressers of have been returned for a refund or have been secured to walls with Ikea’s help since 2015, when the company first offered free wall-mounting kits.Buerkle said Ikea has “worked hard to make this an effective recall.” She said it presents customers with an array of options “and is as least burdensome to the consumer as it could be.”Ikea said the recalled products are sold with instructions that they had to be attached to walls. Petersson emphasized the recalled units are safe when this is done.The recall is for all Ikea chest and dressers that do not comply with U.S. voluntary industry standards. They included 8 million Malm chest and dressers that were sold from 2002 through June 2016.Peterson said that Ikea has stopped selling products that do not adhere to U.S. voluntary standards.
13 November 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the United Nations human rights chief welcomed the freeing on Saturday of pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi and urged the authorities in Myanmar to release all remaining political prisoners. Ms. Suu Kyi, the head of the National League for Democracy (NLD) and a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, had been under house arrest for much of the past two decades. Her release comes one week after the South-east Asian nation held its first elections in 20 years.“Her dignity and courage in the face of injustice have been an inspiration to many people around the world, including the Secretary-General, who has long advocated her freedom,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said in a statement.“The Secretary-General expects that no further restrictions will be placed on her, and he urges the Myanmar authorities to build on today’s action by releasing all remaining political prisoners.” The statement also noted that it was “deeply regrettable” that Ms. Suu Kyi was effectively excluded from participating in the recent elections. “Democracy and national reconciliation require that all citizens of Myanmar are free to participate as they wish in the political life of their country.” UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay called Ms. Suu Kyi’s release a “positive signal” that the Myanmar authorities are willing to move forward with the serious challenge of democratic transition. “Clearly, Aung San Suu Kyi can make a major contribution to this process,” Ms. Pillay stated, adding that she remained “extremely disappointed” that the pro-democracy leader was not released before the elections. The High Commissioner urged the authorities to now release the other 2,200 political prisoners as “a clear sign that the new Government intends to respect human rights and forge a new future for the country.”
“Efforts to ensure security and provide protection to civilians must be beefed up, and aid organizations must be able to secure greater access to populations in need of assistance,” Ms. Kyung-wha Kang reiterated yesterday as the first Summit of Heads of States and Governments of the Economic Community of Central African States convened on regional security in Cameroon’s capital of Yaoundé. In a statement released on the heels of her travels throughout the country visiting refugee camps and meeting with displaced people, Ms. Kang warned that Cameroon is facing an increasingly complex and multifaceted humanitarian situation: a refugee influx in the east from the conflict in Central African Republic (CAR), a surge of displacements in the northern region due to Boko Haram attacks, repeated cycles of droughts and floods, malnutrition and recurrent epidemics. Ms. Kang, who is also UN Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator, expressed deep concern about the growing impact of attacks by Boko Haram in neighbouring Nigeria and Cameroon which has prompted some 40,000 Nigerians to seek refuge in Cameroon and displacing tens of thousands of Cameroonians. “I am particularly concerned by reports of attacks on villages, kidnapping of civilians, recruitment of young men and indoctrination of children,” she said.Given these developments, the humanitarian appeal for Cameroon has more than doubled in a year: the 2015 Strategic Response Plan seeks $264 million compared to $126 million in 2014. Insecurity has also halted economic activity and harvesting in many areas in the far northern region and is impeding humanitarians from accessing the affected people.During her visit in the country last week, Ms. Kang, travelled to eastern Cameroon, on the border with CAR, where more than 150,000 Central Africans have sought refuge from the violence. She visited the Gado refugee camp, where the majority of refugees are women and children and heard testimonies about the horrors of their months-long journey in the bush to escape violence. Many died of exhaustion, disease or at the hands of armed groups, she recalled. Earlier in her trip, Ms. Kang also visited several pockets inside CAR with internally displaced persons (IDPs) who were in dire need and unwilling to go back home unless security was assured. She stressed that for Central African IDPs and refugees to feel safe returning to their areas of origin, violence must stop and discrimination against minorities and accountability for violations need to be addressed.Ms. Kang also called for grass-roots mechanisms to foster reconciliation and mend the sectarian divide that has deepened by the armed conflict that broke out in CAR in December 2013. She reiterated that “enabling women to play a leadership role in their communities is essential to foster reconciliation, recovery and peace.”Cameroon is also affected by the ongoing food security crisis in the Sahel region which has left more than a million people in need of life-saving food and nutritional assistance. The UN and partners recently launched the Sahel humanitarian appeal for 2015. The appeal is part of a regional multi-year strategy to respond to the chronic challenges in the region. In Yaoundé, Ms. Kang met with representatives of UN and non-governmental organization (NGO) partners as well as donor representatives, emphasizing that investing in areas such as education and youth employment could contribute to reducing the impact of Boko Haram.
Serena Williams, of the United States, serves to Karolina Pliskova, of the Czech Republic, during the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open tennis tournament Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018, in New York. (AP Photo/Adam Hunger)NEW YORK (AP) — Serena Williams began her U.S. Open quarterfinal tentatively. Her shots lacked their usual sting, her attitude its usual conviction.She was facing the last player she lost to at Flushing Meadows. She kept looking up her coach, as if seeking solutions. After just 20 minutes Tuesday night, Williams was in danger of trailing by two service breaks. Not much later, the outcome was no longer in doubt, because the 23-time Grand Slam champion suddenly was in complete control.Williams put aside some early shakiness and an early deficit, turning things around with an eight-game run en route to a 6-4, 6-3 victory over No. 8 seed Karolina Pliskova for a spot in the semifinals. It was Williams’ first win over a top-10 player this season.“I was playing really not a good game,” said Williams, who was a point from trailing 4-1 and did fall behind 4-2 while making 22 of her 30 unforced errors in the first set. “I was thinking, ‘You know, I can play better.’ So that was the good news.”Pliskova offered this guess about what was happening to Williams: “Maybe she was a little bit nervous.”Maybe. But that didn’t last long.Pliskova is a big server and hitter in her own right, someone who briefly spent time at No. 1 in the WTA rankings and was the runner-up at the U.S. Open in 2016, when she beat Williams in the semifinals. The 36-year-old American did not compete in New York a year ago, because she gave birth to her daughter during the tournament.Go back to 2015, and that was another semifinal departure for Williams, whose bid for a calendar-year Grand Slam was shockingly ended by Roberta Vinci.“Well, I want to just be able to get past the semis here. It’s been a few, couple, rough semis for me,” Williams said. “But regardless, this has been a great road.”This time, Williams’ semifinal opponent will be No. 19 seed Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia, who surprisingly beat defending champion Sloane Stephens 6-2, 6-3 earlier Tuesday.Stephens, who said she had been dealing with a sinus infection, rued all of her wasted opportunities, most notably the seven break points she failed to convert in the first set. She sure didn’t attempt to hide her frustration, either, repeatedly gesturing toward or speaking in the direction of her coach, Kamau Murray, up in the stands.When someone urged her to raise her level in the second set, Stephens replied, “I’m trying!”“When you don’t play big points well, the match can get away from you,” Stephens said. “I think that’s what happened today. I didn’t convert.”Sevastova, who retired in 2013 because of injuries and returned nearly two years later, advanced to her first Slam semifinal.“Still long way to go, I think,” she said.Especially considering that the next step will come against Williams, who’s heading into her 36th semi at a major, 12th at Flushing Meadows.Williams already proved at Wimbledon that she is capable of the sort of dominant performances she has shown over the years, making all the way to the final at the All England Club before losing. She’ll hope to do one better now and claim a seventh U.S. Open title.Her sluggish start against Pliskova came in the same 90-degree heat and 50-percent humidity that hampered John Isner in his quarterfinal loss to Juan Martin del Potro on Tuesday afternoon, and Roger Federer in his fourth-round exit against John Millman a night earlier and prompted the tournament to suspend play in junior matches for a few hours. It also made things tough on No. 1 Rafael Nadal and No. 9 Dominic Thiem during their 4-hour, 49-minute tussle that ended just past 2 a.m. on Wednesday, with Nadal pulling out the 0-6, 6-4, 7-5, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (5) victory to return to the semifinals.With her older sister, Venus — the woman she beat in the third round — in her guest box, Williams looked tight. Her timing was off. She put a backhand into the net to get broken to 2-1 at the outset. Then, down 3-1, she faced three break points; if Pliskova won any, she would have led 4-1. But Pliskova did not manage to put any of Williams’ serves in play on those key points.“Too strong,” Pliskova said.Soon after that, Williams went from trailing 4-2 to not only taking the first set but also leading 4-0 in the second.By the end, Williams compiled a 13-3 edge in aces, and 35-12 in total winners.“She’s playing with the same power. She can still serve well. I don’t think there’s any change with her game,” Pliskova said. “She’s just going for her shots.”
‘Leo models himself on Macron and Trudeau, but he’s not living up to them when it comes to gender balance’ Who runs the world… girls? http://jrnl.ie/3454802 Those two leaders in France and Canada have explicitly moved to ensure better gender representation in their Cabinets by their choice of ministers.Bacik said it “is a real shame and a real missed opportunity” that Varadkar has not done the same in Ireland.In a statement, Labour Women condemned the Taoiseach’s failure to promote women, describing it as “a shameful decision which really shows our Taoiseach’s true colours when it comes to liberal values”.Chair of Labour Women Sinéad Ahern said following gender quotas, the highest ever number of women were elected last year.Taoiseach Varadkar wasn’t exactly stuck for choice when it came to considering women from his own party.“For a man of his generation to be leading the country he had a real opportunity to lead the way in promoting women in the workplace, and it’s shocking that he didn’t,” added Ahern.A government source described the criticism as “unfair” and pointed out that Regina Doherty and Helen McEntee have both been promoted to “very important roles”. They added that people are appointed on merit.“Fine Gael are the party of gender quotas,” said the source.It is understood that it is the party and the Taoiseach’s hope to increase representation of women in the Dáil.Read: Proposals to limit smaller party speaking times is ‘attempt to silence radical voices’ in Dáil>Read: Commissioner refuses to name retired officer who was signatory on ‘suspicious’ account> O’Connor said it is crucial there be a whole of Cabinet approach to prioritising policies of women’s equality.Female TDs and senators were also not happy with the numbers. It’s understood the matter will be raised at the Oireachtas Women’s Caucus in the coming weeks. Source: Jan O’Sullivan/Twitter We now have 19 Ministers of State.

Marcella Corcoran Kennedy lost her junior ministry today.Orla O’Connor, Director of National Women’s Council of Ireland said the numbers are stark.“It is disappointing that in this 32nd Dáil which houses the highest number of women TDs ever elected, that we are not seeing similar increases in the numbers of women in senior decision-making positions.“Only 18 women have been appointed to Cabinet since Countess Markievicz became Minister for Labour in 1919. This is one woman less than the current number of Ministers for State,” she said. By Christina Finn THE NEW TAOISEACH Leo Varadkar has been criticised for appointing fewer females than Enda Kenny to junior ministry roles.He faced similar criticism last week when Labour’s Joan Burton described the Cabinet reshuffle as a “bad day for women”.Of the 34 positions that Varadkar had to fill, seven are female.With women appointed to just four senior Cabinet positions, this number remains the same as the number appointed to the previous Cabinet.Mary Mitchell O’Connor was the only casualty in Leo Varadkar’s Cabinet reshuffle, demoted from Minister for Jobs to super junior minister for higher education.Arts Minister Heather Humphreys also had her ministerial portfolio reduced, with rural affairs being transferred to newly appointed Minister Michael Ring. For one who has very overtly and explicitly modelled himself on Emmanuel Macron and Justin Trudeau I believe it is a terrible shame the Taoiseach has missed this opportunity. @women4election @NWCI @labourwomen very disappointing to see fewer women in Minister of State ranks as well as round cabinet table— Jan O’Sullivan (@JanOSullivanTD) June 20, 2017 Source: TheJournal Politics/Twitter Short URL Leo Varadkar with his new junior ministers.

The recent volatile trading sessions seen in domestic stock markets have left investors confused over the future direction of the markets; however, many analysts see more downside for the equity markets citing a delayed monsoon rainfall and rising crude oil prices in the international markets.The benchmark BSE Sensex plunged 470 points or 1.75% on Thursday to close at 26,370.98 points, erasing all the gains it witnessed in the previous session. The Nifty index was down 2% to close at 7,965, breaking the psychologically important level of 8,000 for the first time in more than seven months.”People who were holding on to their stock so far and were not selling till now will sell their stocks to book profit once 8,000 is broken. It is possible that we can see levels of 7,800 over the next few days,” an Independent analyst Ambareesh Baliga told NDTV Profit.Sectors such as auto, banking, capital goods, consumer durables, power, realty, IT and oil & gas indices were down in a range of 1.3-2.4% on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). Tata Power was the biggest Nifty loser, down 5.2% to close at Rs 70.Idea Cellular, Asian Paints, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Bosch, Punjab National Bank, UltraTech Cements and Tata Motors were the other major losers falling by 3.6%-4.5%.Analysts said that delay in monsoon rainfall is the main concern for the market besides rising international crude oil prices. The outcome of monsoon remains important for the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to ease policy rates further.A second year of deficient monsoon rainfall will severely affect the agricultural sector, bringing down the output and rising food prices. A rise in inflation will curtail the prospects of further rate cuts by the central bank.Indian companies are hungry for funds and a delay in liquidity injection into the system would undermine the investment plans of the companies.A rebounce in crude oil prices by nearly 50% is expected to hurt the external balances of the nation. India’s current account deficit has been steadily falling in recent months on the back of a plunge in crude oil prices due to oversupply concerns.The recent spike in oil prices is likely to push the inflation rates up, making the central bank to remain on hold for long.Besides, slow pace of reforms by the Modi government is dampening the sentiment of foreign investors, who have been offloading their shares at an aggressive pace in the recent past.A weak monsoon is expected to put further pressure on the passing of crucial bill like Land Acquisition bill, a bill which was delayed due to strong opposition in the Parliament.

WTTC statement of support to destinations impacted by Hurricane IrmaWTTC statement of support to destinations impacted by Hurricane IrmaToday, the Chairman and the President & CEO of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) issued a joint statement in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma, extending the Council’s full support to all impacted destinations.Chairman Gerald Lawless and President & CEO Gloria Guevara offered the services of WTTC and called upon WTTC Members to come forward and understand the ways in which assistance can be provided to the devastated destinations in the Caribbean and southern United States to ensure a rapid recovery for their essential tourism industries.WTTC also offered to send a High Level delegation and advisors, when it is appropriate to do so, to evaluate and provide recommendations for solutions to assist with the recovery process.Ms Guevara said: “Tourism is a significant driver of the Caribbean countries’ economies and local livelihoods, and the Caribbean has been a popular and high profile destination for many years. WTTC therefore commits to play a part in the region’s recovery, standing by to assist with the restoration of tourism markets and infrastructure as the Hurricane passes, impacts are measured, and the rebuilding can commence.”“The Caribbean is a beautiful tourist destination. Travel & Tourism generated 15 percent of the Caribbean’s GDP and 13 percent of the region’s employment in 2016. I strongly believe that both the travellers and the destinations will show their resilience and that once damage is assessed and the businesses re-open, travellers will return. WTTC offers to help in all stages of recovery,” added Mr Lawless.Source = World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC)

Cyprus and Egypt will sign an agreement for an underwater natural gas pipeline on Wednesday, set to be the first of its type for the region, Energy Minister Yiorgos Lakkotrypis said on Tuesday.Lakkotrypis and his Egyptian counterpart Tarek el Mollahad held a meeting in the evening with President Nicos Anastasiades, where they informed him about the negotiations regarding the bilateral pipeline agreement.A representative from the European Council will also be present at the signing ceremony to be held on Wednesday.Following the meeting, the president said in a tweet that the agreement for the transfer of natural gas from the Aphrodite field in Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone “is an important milestone” for the field’s exploitation.“We are looking toward the establishment of a dedicated corridor that will consist of different infrastructures to supply gas to the EU from the Eastern Mediterranean,” Anastasiades tweeted.Asked by the Cyprus News Agency earlier in the day how Cyprus views the agreement due to be signed considering that Egypt has already signed 63 agreements, the president said it is important for both countries, “and especially Cyprus as it will be the first trade agreement to be signed.”In August it was reported the deal had been reached between Cairo and Nicosia and that the agreement was already given the green light by the EU and it was being scrutinised for the final touches.President Anastasiades added that soon a coordinating office would be established in Cyprus to handle trilateral agreements the island has signed with Greece and other countries in the Middle East.According to the president, the office for the trilateral relationship Cyprus has built with Greece and Israel would be established soon, while he did not elaborate on an office between the two countries and Egypt, with whom they have a trilateral agreement, as he said it depend on the results of the next meeting between the three in Crete set for October 10.Earlier this year, Cyprus was met with Turkish provocations in its EEZ, when Ankara’s naval vessels blocked research to be conducted by Italian energy giant ENI in block 3 of the island’s EEZ.Asked about how Nicosia will deal with potential new provocations by Turkey in the EEZ, Anastasiades said Cyprus has the positive support of the countries in which the companies work, saying that it is well-known that one is American, and the other two companies are from European partners, France and Italy.Regarding the EastMed pipeline, Anastasiades said that the EU has given €34 million for the project, and that a study was underway on the project’s sustainability.“However, it seems that Israel, Egypt, Greece, Italy, and of course Cyprus are decided on moving forward [with the project],” he said.Asked about Exxon Mobil’s arrival in Cyprus, the President said that the company is expected to arrive within the next two months or by the end of the year.You May LikeNewsDMercedes Benz Beggar In San Diego Confronted After PanhandlingNewsDUndohealthyandpretty20 Everyday Foods That Are Killing You SlowlyhealthyandprettyUndoFitdib20 Hair Shapes That Can Make a Woman Over 60 Look 40FitdibUndo Britain preparing for a no-deal BrexitUndoClear winner in first round of Kition bishop voteUndoFour dead in California garlic festival shootingUndoby Taboolaby Taboola
The met office issued a new orange alert on Wednesday to warn that various parts of the island were likely to be affected by heavy thunderstorms which may be accompanied by hail.Areas most likely to be affected are the inland and mountainous areas, while heavy rainfall may also hit the eastern and southeastern coastal areas, the Met office said.Flash flooding and wind gusts were also possible, it added.The intensity of the storms appears to remain consistently strong since the first orange warning was issued last Friday, with the precipitation rate expected to exceed 55 millimetres per hour.The alert is valid from noon until 6pm.The met office warned that the thunderstorms are likely to cause damage to property and trees, and to disrupt transport and outdoor activities. It warned the public to protect itself from lightning.The deteriorating weather conditions which are also extraordinary for the Cyprus summer period are the result of a low-pressure system and an unstable air mass that are affecting the area, the met office weather forecast showed.Temperatures will be 34C inland, around 31C at the south and east coasts, around 29C at the remaining coasts and around 24C in mountainous areas.Wednesday night is expected to be mainly clear with localised low cloud and some fog, with temperatures dropping to 19C inland, around 22C on the coasts and around 13C in the mountains.Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue until Saturday.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboola
