Corea del Norte efectúa otra prueba de misil balístico

Fuente: El Pais Asia

http://internacional.elpais.com/internacional/imagenes/2017/05/29/actualidad/1496024180_374919_1496024773_miniatura_normal.jpg

El proyectil se lanzó desde la base de Wonsan, en el este del país, a las 5.39 hora surcoreana de este lunes (20.39 horas GMT del domingo) y voló unos seis minutos. El Comando del Pacífico de Estados Unidos también confirmó haber detectado el lanzamiento y se informó de ello al presidente Donald Trump. El primer ministro japonés, Shinzo Abe, afirmó por su parte que “no se pueden tolerar las repetidas provocaciones de Corea del Norte que ignoran las advertencias de la comunidad internacional“. Trump y Abe se reunieron el viernes en los márgenes de la cumbre del G7 para hablar sobre todo del programa nuclear norcoreano, una cuestión sobre la cual el presidente estadounidense aseguró “es un gran problema”, pero que “se solucionará”.

El lanzamiento de este lunes es la novena prueba ordenada por Kim Jong-un este año. El líder norcoreano aseguró ya en su discurso de Año Nuevo que el régimen ultima misiles de largo radio que pueden equiparse con bombas nucleares y alcanzar objetivos en territorio estadounidense. Si bien los expertos no consideran que esto sea así, sí reconocen avances significativos en su programa de armamento. De hecho, hace apenas dos semanas, Corea del Norte probó un nuevo tipo de cohete de alcance intermedio, que alcanzó una altura de más de 2.000 kilómetros para caer después “en un punto preciso previsto”, según presumió la propaganda norcoreana.

Es también el tercer lanzamiento desde la llegada de Moon Jae-in a la presidencia de Corea del Sur. A primera hora de la mañana el presidente convocó el Consejo de Seguridad Nacional para analizar la situación, según informa la agencia surcoreana Yonhap. Los misiles tipo Scud norcoreanos tienen un alcance de entre 300 y 500 kilómetros, por lo que tienen al alcance objetivos en Corea del Sur. También se ha desarrollado una variante que puede volar hasta 1.000 kilómetros, lo que también pone dentro de su radio a Japón.

Moon, a diferencia de sus predecesores, apostó durante la campaña electoral por un acercamiento con su vecino del Norte. La semana pasada, el Ministerio de Unificación surcoreano aprobó la solicitud a una ONG local para contactar con el Norte y enviarles mosquiteras y repelentes. La decisión, según los analistas, refleja la voluntad de la nueva administración de abrir puentes de diálogo especialmente en el área de la ayuda humanitaria sin renunciar a las sanciones económicas aprobadas por la comunidad internacional.

Vista la poca efectividad de las sanciones internacionales y las advertencias verbales a Corea del Norte, el nuevo ejecutivo surcoreano contempla también la reanudación de las conversaciones a seis bandas, suspendidas desde el año 2006. La plataforma reúne en la misma mesa, además de representantes de ambas Coreas, delegaciones de Rusia, China, Japón y Estados Unidos.

Vietnam: World Bank Approves $72.52 million Additional Financing to Improve Infrastructure Facilities in Da Nang

Fuente: Banco Mundial Este de Asia y Pacífico

Washington, May 26, 2017 –The World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors approved today US$ 72.52 million in additional financing from the IDA Scale-Up Facility to support investments in infrastructure in Da Nang, an emerging city in central Vietnam. 

“The pace of infrastructure investment in cities – including those for transport and sanitation services – must match the pace of economic growth,” said Ousmane Dione, the World Bank Country Director for Vietnam. “Strengthening integrated investments in infrastructure in growing metropolitan centers like Da Nang is crucial in sustaining the engine of inclusive growth for Vietnam.” 

As the fourth largest city in Vietnam, Da Nang is widely viewed as well-planned and well-governed, with a strong commitment to becoming a ‘green city’ by the year 2025.

The additional financing aims to support the scaling up of the Da Nang Sustainable City Development Project, by helping develop a separate sewer/house connection system – and hence minimize pollution risks – for coastal tourism area of My An–My Khe.

Transport services are also targeted for improvement, through the establishment of an integrated fare system and intelligent transport system (ITS) for the city public transport including the Bus Rapid Transit system.

Another component of the additional financing will focus on upgrading the road from Hoa Nhon to the Hoa Son area of Da Nang city, so that local traffic will be diverted from the Da Nang – Quang Ngai and Da Nang Bypass Expressways.

The additional financing will come from IDA, the World Bank’s financial resources for low income countries.

Filled with guilt for death of wife, kids, man kills self

Six months after his wife and children were killed in a road accident, a 36-year-old man, who had been driving the vehicle, committed suicide on Friday, the Wadala police said. Mangru Verma (36) lost six members of his family in November 2016 in an accident on the Eastern Freeway. Apart from his wife and two children, his sister-in-law and her family had also been in the taxi that Verma was driving. The Dongri police had booked him for rash and negligent driving after the accident.

An officer from Wadala police station said a neighbour found Verma hanging at his home on Friday evening. “The neighbour in his statement said he had gone to call on Verma, but he did not open the door. After knocking repeatedly, the neighbour peeped into the house through the window and found Verma hanging from the ceiling. He then alerted others,” the officer said. The neighbours broke open the door and brought his body down.

The Wadala police was informed about the incident, and an accidental death report filed.

“No foul play is suspected. No suicide note was found from the spot. His neighbours said that Verma would feel extremely guilty after the accident. He was also worried about the police case against him,” the officer said.

The accident had taken place on November 5, 2016, when Verma was driving a taxi with his wife Anara Verma (35); daughter Asha (12), son Rajkumar (8), Anara’s sister Rajshree Verma (38), her husband Harkesh (45), daughter Ragini (20), and sons Vinay (21) and Ravi (15) as passengers. While Verma, Vinay and Ravi escaped with injuries, the other six died in the crash that took place after the speeding taxi rammed into the concrete side rail of the southern end of the Eastern Freeway. The family was headed to the Mumba Devi temple from Wadala.

Verma had sustained injuries in the accident and was admitted to the hospital. After he was released, an FIR had been registered against him.

More cases on EVM ‘tampering’, illegal constructions this year

Even as 26 cases related to the civic elections held in 2012 are still pending in the small causes court in Mumbai, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC)’s legal department is looking at 156 additional cases linked with the civic elections held in February this year. A comparison of the figures on malpractices in both the elections indicates a significant rise, especially in cases alleging tampering of electronic voting machines (EVMs): the number has jumped from 2 in 2012 to at least 17 this year.

Legal department officials said after this year’s civic elections, 156 cases have been filed in the small causes court while in 2012, the figure was 101 cases. Of the cases, 17 cases involve allegations of EVM machines being tampered with while 14 others relate to defective or faulty electoral list. The two cases filed in 2012 are still pending in court.

The EVM-related cases this year include the names of several sitting corporators, including Samajwadi Party leader and two-time corporator Rais Shaikh, Sena corporator, former mayor Shraddha Jadhav, Sena corporator Anant Bhiku Nar, NCP corporator Manisha Rahate and Congress corporator Vithal Lokare.

Earlier this month, the AAP raised serious allegations with the state election commission that EVM machines could be tampered with and even conducted a live demonstration on how the voting machines could be manipulated. After being repeatedly urged by Opposition parties to adopt the old paper ballot system instead, the SEC, on May 20, declared an open challenge to all national and state political parties from June 3 onwards to prove the EVM machines could be hacked.

Among other serious civic polls-related charges, allegations of candidates’ involvement in unauthorised constructions too has seen a rise from one case in 2012 to 20 this year. “If a candidate has been served a notice for unauthorised construction and if the candidate has not revealed it in his or her affidavit, then he or she could be disqualified as a corporator if proven in court,” said an official in the legal department.

Another serious offence involves improper rejection of a candidate’s nomination form. Such cases are filed against the returning officer concerned. “It is easier to prove a charge of improper acceptance since we can justify the reason. However, a case of improper rejection is hard to win and there can be serious repercussions if the judge rules in the petitioner’s favour,” the official said.

Of the 156 cases filed with the small causes court, the BMC has only received the documents for 128 so far. Based on the analysis of data prepared by the legal department, the number of cases citing the use of corrupt practices, however, has reduced from 55 in 2012 to 33 this year.

Two arrested, police say relative plotted theft

The anti extortion cell of the Mumbai crime branch has arrested three persons for stealing gold and diamond jewellery worth Rs 23 lakh from a south Mumbai residence in January this year. Officers said the crime was carried out allegedly at the behest of a relative of the complainant, and more arrests are likely.

The incident took place on January 10 this year, when the complainant returned to his second-floor residence of Yusuf building at Grant Road. The complainant, who had gone to his native place Jamnagar in Gujarat on January 6, found the jewellery missing, and approached the D B Marg police station.

Last week, an officer from the anti extortion cell received a tip-off about two people who were allegedly involved in the crime. The police nabbed Hussain Ali Sarkar (31) and Yusuf Shareef (27), and found they had allegedly sold some of the stolen jewellery to one Shabina Shaikh (45), a Grant Road resident.

An officer said further questioning of Sarkar and Shareef revealed the crime was carried out at the behest of a relative of the complainant.

“The complainant had told the relative he was going to his native place. The relative knew of the jewellery kept at his home. The relative then contacted the two accused and helped them get access to duplicate keys and told them where the jewellery was kept. The accused had duplicate keys for the main door, safety door, bedroom door and the locker,” said an officer. The police also searched the residence of Shaikh and found some of the stolen jewellery there.

Mumbai’s Vaju Kotak Marg: Named after journalist, was once notorious for crime

The street in Ballard Estate was named after journalist Vaju Kotak, who founded a magazine here in 1950. Ganesh Shirsekar

In the midst of Cochin Street, Calicut Road and Kumta Street in Ballard Estate is Vaju Kotak Marg. While most lanes connecting Shahid Bhagat Singh Road with R Kamani Road are named after port towns, this 300-metre road seems an exception. But even this lane was once known as Karwar Street, named after a port city from North Karnataka. It was later renamed after leading journalist Vaju Kotak founded his Gujarati weekly magazine Chitralekha on this street in 1950.

“Vaju Kotak’s magazine Chitralekha used to be published from here for many years and that’s why the road was named after him. His contribution to Gujarati journalism and literature is immense. In 2011, on the diamond jubilee of the magazine, the government also released a postal stamp in his honour,” says Bharat Ghelani, the current editor of the magazine.

Though the name was changed in 1973, even today some refer to the street by its old name and some shops still write Karwar Street on their boards beside the new name.

The street is dotted with several old structures, such as the community hall Kanji Khetsi Wadi, the 116-year-old Badami & Sons specialising in ship parts and even the office of the Additional Commissioner of Police (Protection and Security).

Earlier, the police office was used by the Alcohol Prohibition team. Subhash Shukla, the 43-year-old owner of an electrical goods shop on the street, says, “Earlier, this street used to be synonymous with crime. From illicit liquor to extortion, there is nothing that this street has not seen. But all that has changed now.”

Having seen the street grow since the 1980s, he says, “Most of the shops have changed hands now — Chitralekha’s office has given way to a clothes store, a Persian restaurant has been replaced by Hotel Kalapi. Earlier, there were a lot of hardware shops here but today, there are more stationery shops.”

“Also, our street used to have the best pandals during Ganeshotsav. But with rising costs, everyone does it as simply as possibly.” Chitralekha shifted its office to Andheri in the 1980s, but until a few years ago, its registered office operated from the street.

Also a bestselling Gujarati author, Vaju Kotak has lent his name to roads in Rajkot and Bhavnagar as well.

PM Modi lauds Versova beach clean-up efforts in Mann ki Baat

Fuente: The Indian Express Mumbai

http://images.indianexpress.com/2017/05/m3.jpg

After the mammoth clean-up drive of Versova beach, which went viral on social media last week, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday’s Mann ki Baat lauded the efforts of Versova resident volunteers. PM Modi was addressing the nation through his monthly radio programme Mann Ki Baat, his first since completing three years in power.

“I feel proud to make a mention of something…a man can start a massive people’s movement. Recently you must have heard about Versova Beach, once considered very dirty, it has now become clean and beautiful. This has not happened overnight, locals have toiled for over 80 weeks.”

“…all credit goes to Versova Resident Volunteers, they took up the task to clean it up. One Mr Afroz Shah was involved in it since October 2015. Gradually more and more people joined in and it turned into a people’s movement,” PM Modi said.

Versova beach is considered one of the city’s dirtiest coastal stretches. However, over five million kilograms of garbage and plastic has been removed from the beach in the recent months, and the photos of its dramatic transformation have gone viral. Lawyer and environmentalist Afroz Shah (33) led volunteers on an 86-week mission to clean the 2.5 km stretch in the western suburbs.

The United Nations last year had also recognised Shah’s endevour and felicitated him with a Champion of the Earth award in 2016 for his effort to clean up Versova beach. Shah is the first Indian to win this award, PM Modi said. “I congratulate Mr. Afroz Shah and this movement…it is inspirational how he connected people,” Modi said.

Shah told The Indian Express that he feels encouraged with the prime minister’s words. “Volunteers are mostly picking up the plastic thrown up by the ocean. This has been a demonstration of the incredible power of community-based volunteer work,” Shah said.

Earlier this year, in February, the United Nations started the international Clean Seas campaign at Indonesia, on the lines of Versova efforts.

‘Green winners’ to be felicitated on June 5

On World Environment Day on June 5, environmental activists who made a ‘green impact’ on society will be felicitated by the Bhamla Foundation, an umbrella group of environmental activists in Mumbai. The ‘green winners’ mainly include members of Advanced Locality Management (ALM) groups, who will be felicitated for their contribution in improving their immediate environment.

“We have had a successful inning…we have now reached a level where the youth has raised concerns about several environment-related subjects, especially on matters like segregation of waste and rainwater harvesting in housing societies,” said Asif Bhamla, founder of the 20-year-old Bhamla Foundation.

Bhamla believes that “talking” about the environment doesn’t help it. “Talking doesn’t help (the environment), which is why we have taken the aid of the political, film and sports personalites. Five years ago, Sachin Tendulkar had a discussion with the youth about wastage of water while bathing and shaving,” said Bhamla.

The organisers said that this year, the major focus of the event will be on waste management. A cyclothon with various Cycling Associations in Mumbai spearheaded by the BCC (Bandra Cycle Club) will also be held, between Bandstand and Carter Road, to set an example of alternative methods of traveling.

“We have tied up with the state pollution board and the local ward officers for the segregation of garbage. Last year, we installed a green plant in Bandra Kurla Complex that generates electricity from wet and dry garbage. The electricity produced is used to run street lights and we are helping save at least Rs 3.5 lakh every month,” said Bhamla, adding that a biogas plant is being planned.

At the event, stalls will be set up in the Carter Road promenade to spread information about the preservation and conservation of the environment. Other events include painting and drawing competitions for children, a keynote address on the environment as well as stage performances.

Last year, besides the felicitations, there were mime acts to spread the message of conservation, and a dance performance by the Shiamak Davar group. ChakaChak Bandra group had performed a play with an element of humour to highlight the negligence of garbage disposal by some sections of society.
