UN, World Bank officials alarmed by ‘deconstruction’ of Palestinian economy Voicing grave concern over the escalating conflict in the Middle East, two senior United Nations and World Bank officials in the region today called for the protection of civilians on both sides and urged Israel to lift the closure of the Palestinian territory, which they said had endangered the people’s livelihoods and engendered a sense of hopelessness and desperation. “We are very disturbed by the life-threatening conditions under which the Palestinian civilian population is currently living, as well as the continuous deconstruction of the Palestinian economy over the past 18 months,” said Terje Roed-Larsen, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, and Nigel Roberts, the World Bank’s Director for the West Bank and Gaza, in a joint statement issued in Jerusalem. “The damage to livelihoods, infrastructure and organizational capacity runs counter to any serious pursuit of peace and security.”The two officials pointed out that half of all people in the West Bank and Gaza were surviving on less than $2 per day, and stressed that the most important cause of economic decline was the policy of closure. “The Government of Israel is urged to lift the closure as soon as possible,” the statement said, noting that it should be done within the context of the recent Security Council resolution 1402. “We urge the Government of Israel to ensure that full respect is given to humanitarian principles, and that relief workers, who are risking their lives to assist the injured, the sick and the needy, are given unimpeded freedom of mobility,” the statement added, calling on the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) to halt the destruction of water pumps, electricity generators and sub-stations, roads, schools, hospitals and businesses.”The situation will be even more severe, if the actions we are witnessing in Ramallah, Bethlehem, Jenin, Qalqilya and Nablus are sustained, or if closure is tightened further,” the statement said, adding that if this occurred it would trigger “a steep slide into more widespread poverty and hopelessness.”The officials stressed that the Palestinian Authority had been providing basic, essential services under very adverse conditions for a year and a half, and warned that if it were de-legitimized the donor community would lose its main channel of assistance to the area’s people. “This would carry enormous costs – in Palestinian suffering and in the further contraction of any hopes for peace and security,” they said.Outlining priority areas, the statement stressed the urgent need to protect civilians on both sides, to guarantee full mobility for relief workers, and to end to the destruction of Palestinian infrastructure. At the same time, donors were called on to fund humanitarian agencies working to alleviate conditions in the region and to provide the Palestinian Authority with budgetary support.
Taking its name from a phrase in the UN Charter, the report, “In Larger Freedom: towards development, security and human rights for all,” marks the culmination of a process Mr. Annan has initiated to realign the world body in this milestone year so that it can better respond to today’s pressing challenges.If acted on, the proposals – ranging from a nine-member increase in the Security Council’s membership to the establishment of a new Human Rights Council – would mark the most dramatic change in the UN’s functioning ever achieved at once.The report argues that this seismic shift is warranted by the interrelated imperatives at stake. “[W]e will not enjoy development without security, we will not enjoy security without development, and we will not enjoy either without respect for human rights,” Mr. Annan warns. “We can and must act together.”The report’s first main section, “Freedom from want,” deals with the deadly toll of poverty, which currently plagues more than a billion people in a world beset by growing inequality. “A single bite from a malaria-bearing mosquito is enough to end a child’s life for want of a bed net or $1 treatment,” the Secretary-General points out. He adds that while this sad reality has long been viewed as an inescapable aspect of the human condition, that view is now “intellectually and morally indefensible.”In order to achieve the far-reaching Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – a set of anti-poverty targets agreed to by world leaders at a 2000 UN summit – he proposes that all developed States allocate 0.7 per cent of their gross national income to official development assistance by no later than 2015, with significant increases by 2006.Calling climate change “one of the greatest environmental and developmental challenges of the twenty-first century,” Mr. Annan notes that the Kyoto Protocol, a pact that contains binding targets for the emissions that cause climate change, only extends until 2012. He calls for developing a more inclusive framework beyond that date with broader participation by all major emitters and both developed and developing countries.In the second main section, “Freedom from fear,” the Secretary-General endorses a report he commissioned by a high-level panel on threats, challenges and change. “I fully embrace the broad vision that the report articulates and its case for a more comprehensive concept of collective security: one that tackles new threats and old and that addresses the security concerns of all States.”Specifically, he backs the panel’s definition of terrorism – an issue so divisive agreement on it has long eluded the international community – stating unequivocally that “any action constitutes terrorism if it is intended to cause death or serious bodily harm to civilians or non-combatants with the purpose of intimidating a population or compelling a government or an international organization to do or abstain from doing any act.”This proposal has “clear moral force,” he says, urging world leaders to back it and conclude a comprehensive terrorism treaty during the next General Assembly session.The report’s other security proposals include a call for a fissile material cut-off treaty aimed at reducing the risk of nuclear proliferation, and the creation of a UN Peacebuilding Council to help countries emerging from conflict. The report’s third main section, “Freedom to live in dignity,” deals with human rights and democracy. The Secretary-General recommends replacing the current Commission on Human Rights with a standing Human Rights Council whose members are elected directly by the General Assembly and who “undertake to abide by the highest human rights standards.”He also calls for the creation of a democracy fund to help countries in need and pledges to galvanize UN efforts in this field. The last main section deals with strengthening the UN and sets out measures to improve its workings, including reforming the Security Council. Here again, Mr. Annan backs the high-level panel, which outlined two possible models for increasing the Council’s membership to make it more representative and inclusive. Model A provides for six new permanent seats, with no veto, and three new two-year term, non-permanent seats, divided among the major regional areas. Model B provides for no new permanent seats but creates a new category of eight four-year, renewable-term seats and one new two-year, non-permanent (and non-renewable) seat, divided among the major regional areas.Although Security Council reform has been discussed at the UN for decades, the issue is so complex and politically sensitive that agreement has been impossible. Seeking to break the deadlock, Mr. Annan urges realistic action. “It would be preferable for Member States to take this vital decision by consensus,” he says, “but if they are unable to reach consensus this must not become an excuse for postponing action.”The report also contains a number of proposals for improving the UN Secretariat. “Today’s United Nations staff must be: (a) aligned with the new substantive challenges of the twenty-first century; (b) empowered to manage complex global operations; and (c) held accountable,” the Secretary-General declares.In order to foster progress on this front, Mr. Annan requests that the General Assembly give him the authority and resources to offer a one-time buyout for UN personnel “so as to refresh and realign the staff to meet current needs.”Urging countries to act on the deal offered in the report, he says it is both necessary and achievable. “What I have called for here is possible,” he says. “From pragmatic beginnings could emerge a visionary change of direction in our world.”
201730–6–1.70 Before Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa became a household name in last season’s national title game, the Georgia Bulldogs had a 13-0 lead and were 30 minutes away from the program’s first championship in nearly 40 years. To start the second half, Nick Saban plugged in the freshman quarterback from Hawaii, and Tagovailoa rallied the Crimson Tide to an overtime victory, adding to the team’s already overflowing trophy case.Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs retreated with their tails tucked between their legs.This weekend’s SEC title game, then, represents the rematch. And once again, Tagovailoa and the Crimson Tide stand in Georgia’s way.It’s ridiculous to think there’s a blueprint for beating Alabama when they’ve looked so dominant, outscoring opponents 588 to 165 this season. But there are a few areas where Georgia may have an advantage.Of course, Georgia doesn’t want to get baited into a shootout with arguably the nation’s best offense. Of course, limiting possessions and muddying up the game are a more optimal approach. Of course, Tagovailoa should be kept off the field as much as possible.All of this starts with running the ball. 201528–5–1.39 Perhaps the most underappreciated storyline in the SEC can be found in Athens. Running backs Sony Michel and Nick Chubb were selected in the first two rounds of this year’s NFL draft, and Georgia’s run game improved.This season, the two-headed monster of Elijah Holyfield and D’Andre Swift has run buckshot through the SEC. Each will likely eclipse the 1,000-yard mark. Largely behind the two, the Bulldogs have over their last four games rushed for 1,345 yards, more than nine teams have accumulated all season. Georgia has the conference’s top rushing attack, gashing opposing defenses for 259.8 yards per contest on 6.3 yards per attempt, and leads the conference in total rushes of 10-plus yards (102) and 20-plus yards (35).Now, it seems silly to nitpick an Alabama defense that has allowed only six rushing touchdowns all season and ranks in the top 15 in both rushing yards allowed per contest (114.0) and rushing yards allowed per carry (3.3) … but we’re going to do it anyway. If Alabama’s ultra-young defense has had difficulty with anything, it’s mitigating explosive plays. Over 12 games this season, the Crimson Tide has allowed 13 carries of 20-plus yards, tied with five teams for 35th-fewest in the nation. On top of that, the Tide defense has also allowed 38 carries of 10 or more yards. Both numbers are the most Alabama has allowed through 12 games since 2011: 2017127.22 Source: Espn Stats & Information Group SeasonNat’l RankRush EPA/Game Season10+ yards gained20+ yards gainedYDS.

This season, the Tide has allowed 2.46 yards after contact per carry, which is the worst performance for Alabama through the first 12 games of a season since 2011, the earliest year for which data is available. Of note: Only Memphis has gained more yards after first contact this year than Georgia.Of course, Tagovailoa is the closest thing to a cheat code in college football this season and could render these potential advantages for Georgia moot. The sophomore has racked up more passing touchdowns in the first half of games (27) than all but 21 schools1Excluding Alabama. have scored over the entire season. But this is an elite Georgia defense that could be Tagovailoa’s biggest test this season.The ultimate irony would be if a quarterback change by Smart decided the outcome of Saturday’s game. Jake Fromm has capably commanded the Georgia offense this season and has been sensational since his tepid showing during the team’s lone loss, which came against LSU. But Justin Fields, one of the most sought-after recruits from the 2018 class, has an uncanny athleticism that adds another potential threat to an already devastating offense. At receiver — again, the irony — Riley Ridley (brother of former Alabama star Calvin Ridley, who scored a touchdown in last season’s title game) has elevated his game this season. Fromm and Fields will look to Ridley, the team leader in receiving touchdowns, to take the top off the Alabama defense.If the game comes down to the wire, Georgia should be the more confident team. Long the Achilles’ heel of Saban-led teams, special teams could be what holds Alabama back. Kicker Joseph Bulovas has missed four of 16 field-goal attempts and has botched five extra points. And while the Crimson Tide ranks in the top two in offensive and defensive efficiency, it ranks a dismal 87th in special teams efficiency. “It’s not really acceptable,” Saban said earlier this month.Conversely, Rodrigo Blankenship, the bespectacled Georgia sensation, has been among college football’s most accurate kickers, nailing 19 of his 22 attempts and all 58 of his extra points. Georgia’s special teams rank far better than Alabama’s, landing at No. 38 in efficiency.It speaks to the sheer dominance of Alabama that Las Vegas sportsbooks installed the Crimson Tide as double-digit favorites against Georgia. But this is a dangerous underdog with all the trappings of a dominant squad. Some metrics consider the Bulldogs among the two best teams nationally. They won’t be short on motivation, if nothing else, as they seek to avenge last season’s loss when the lights were brightest.Check out our latest college football predictions.
More evidence now suggests that we’re right around the corner from the release of Android 4.3, with a refresh to the Nexus 7 as the flagship device for this version.Google likes to have a shiny new piece of hardware to go with their version updates. Last year Google used the competitively prices Nexus 7 to simultaneously place focus on the 7-inch tablet market and to act as the standard bearer for the next version of Android. With all of the rumors surrounding a new Nexus 7 combined with the leaked Android 4.3 ROMs, it seemed likely that Google would use the much needed hardware refresh to introduce the next version of Android. With the suspected hardware bump in this new 7-inch tablet, one of the big questions was whether or not Google was going to be able to keep costs down. It looks like we have the answer to that question with a new leak that surfaced today.Android Centralhttp://www.androidcentral.com/nexus-7-sequel-pricing-leaks-16gb-229-32gb-269?utm_source=ac&utm_medium=twitter is currently reporting that the “Nexus 2” is the name being used by retailers to describe the next 7-inch tablet from Google, with a 16GB model starting at $229. Remember that there’s never been a Nexus 2, when Samsung decided that the follow up to the Nexus One would be the Nexus S so as not to be seen as a follow up to the HTC made handset. There’s a $269 model as well, for users who need 32GB of internal storage for their tablets, but outside of that there’s not a ton of information. The tablets are described as being Quad Core, which falls in line with the rumors that this next tablet would be running Qualcomm Snapdragon hardware under the hood.At the current pace of these leaks, it seems likely that this Nexus 2 will be available any day now. Given what we’ve seen regarding the features being made available in Android 4.3, it’s hard to tell if Google will go all out and have a large press event for the release or not. Many expected this announcement to happen at Google IO this year, but Google took that opportunity to instead announce the Google Play edition hardware.
Maia Dunphy: ‘I’d feel my IBS coming on like a spasm and I’d have to go home’ We need to get people talking about IBS and remove the stigma, writes Maia Dunphy. 3,052 Views Sunday 30 Apr 2017, 7:30 PM Share Tweet Email17 Writer and broadcaster Maia Dunphy http://jrnl.ie/3359413 By Maia Dunphy IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME is a digestive disorder affecting between 15-20% of the Irish population. That equates to approximately 700,000 people that are struggling every day to manage the unpleasant and bothersome symptoms of this chronic digestive condition.IBS symptoms include bloating, abdominal pain, constipation and diarrhoea and can mean sufferers have to dash to the loo without warning. All this can take its toll on sufferers, often resulting in sufferers missing work, school or college.When I was 16, I went to the doctor with crippling stomach pains. It was when I was trying to be healthy and stupidly living on apples and raisins and all the things that now I couldn’t touch with a barge pole.The doctor said: “When we rule out other conditions, what we deem you to have is IBS.” I went, “Fine how can I cure it?” And she said: “You don’t, you learn to live with it.”Learning my triggersSince then it’s mainly been about learning my triggers, which tends to be fruit and vegetables. When I see a raw food diet I curl up into a ball and cry. I can eat everything else. In fact when I live on less healthy food I tend to be better, whereas raw onions in a salad are like garlic to a vampire for me.The issues for me were bloating and really bad, crippling stomach pains. You really would need an hour to lie down in a darkened room and you feel it coming on like a spasm in your stomach.I can’t really drink wine. If I’m at home I can have the odd glass with food, but if I was to go out for dinner with friends and have a glass on an empty stomach, it would be crippling. I’d feel it coming on like a spasm, and the pain would be so bad I’d have to go home and curl up in bed.The part stress playsIBS can be really debilitating and just grim, and I did worry about getting pregnant as the symptoms can get much worse or disappear. Luckily for me it disappeared while I was pregnant. In the last year I’ve had three or four really bad episodes of chronic pain but now I’m taking Alflorex which really helps.As I am living in London with my husband Johnny, our 20-month-old son Tom and stepson Michael, I spend a lot of time flying back to Dublin for work on freelance projects.Life can definitely be stressful, and my doctor told me she’s never met anyone with IBS who isn’t stressed. Professor Fergus Shanahan in Cork said to me: “If you have IBS, it is causing you massive anxiety” and they are not sure what comes first. But there is no denying my default setting wouldn’t be calm. When it flared up again last year, I had been stressed.IBS is often dismissed. My doctor took it seriously but people don’t often know how serious it can be if you have it severely. We need to talk about it more. People need to be aware. There are wide range of symptoms and each person diagnosed with IBS will experience the disease differently.Compared to the women that I have spoken with in my video, my symptoms are mild, but I still know the misery of living with the uncertainty, bloating and stomach pain associated with this condition.We need to get people talking about IBS and remove the stigma and perceived embarrassment. People shouldn’t be suffering in silence or too embarrassed to talk about it to a pharmacist, GP or gastroenterologist because they have heard it all before.Maia Dunphy is a writer and broadcaster. She set up the instantly successful site “The M Word” – a hub for women who happen to be mums. She is currently working on a book with Gill & McMillan.

Stay on target 50 Attorneys General Launch Bipartisan Probe Into GoogleYouTube Fined $170M For Alleged Child Privacy Law Violation It was 50 years ago today last Friday/this Thursday that the Beatles released their eighth studio album, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” in the UK and US, respectively.And while fans will travel far and wide to visit London’s Abbey Road Studio—where John, Paul, George, and Ringo transformed into the fictional Edwardian military band—Google Earth has a simpler solution.“Today on Google Earth’s storytelling platform, Voyager, we’re celebrating not only this beloved, influential album but the whole of the Fab Four’s monumental contributions to rock ‘n’ roll,” content strategist Jill Emeny wrote in a blog post.The global Voyager tour highlights significant moments and places in the group’s career, from Liverpool’s Cavern Club to Central Park’s Strawberry Fields memorial.Liverpool’s famed Cavern Club (via Google Maps)Grab a scotch and coke, a pair of round glasses, and your favorite Beatles record, then sit back and relax on a trip around the world. See the sights at the real Penny Lane, enter the Hamburg club where the band performed almost nonstop for 48 nights, and stop by the Ed Sullivan Theater where The Beatles made their first live TV appearance in America (current home to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert).On the West Coast you’ll see two-time Beatles venue the Hollywood Bowl concert hall, before heading to the Maharishi’s ashram in India, credited for the group’s spiritual awakening (as witnessed in’ “Within You, Without You”).The excursion continues at Abbey Road Studios and the Hilton Amsterdam hotel where John Lennon and Yoko Ono held their “Bed-In for Peace,” before ending with New York City’s tribute to the late, great Lennon.Forty minutes of pure joy, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” features classics like “With a Little Help From My Friends,” “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” “When I’m Sixty-Four,” “A Day in the Life,” and, of course, the title track.A recently reissued “super deluxe” edition (produced by Giles Martin, son of “fifth Beatle” Sir George Martin) celebrates the 50th anniversary with dozens of outtakes and alternate song versions, a making-of documentary, and 114-page full-color book, among other goodies.

Of course, there is a little emotion but you must remain professional, and I am very happy with the treatment I have received at this beautiful stadium.”
It’s no secret that newsstand sales are, at best, a marginal revenue source for the vast majority of magazine publishers. Titles that offer per-issue subscription discounts of less than 50 percent off the cover price saw, on average, newsstand declines of between 3 and 5 percent over the two-year period. Titles offering subscription discounts of 50 to 70 percent, however, experienced declines around 11 percent. Titles taking the aggressive stance of offering subscription discounts greater than 70 percent saw newsstand sales slip over 16 percent, on average. In an effort to measure the correlation between newsstand declines and subscription discounts—or, more realistically, the degree to which such discounts are eating into newsstand sales—MagNet examined cover prices, subscription prices, and sales trends for 70 of the top 100 selling regular frequency magazines over a two-year period ending December, 2015. SIPs were not considered. Not surprisingly, the study found a direct correlation between deep subscription discounts and lagging newsstand sales, as the less money consumers will save with a subscription, the more apt they are to purchase a frequency title one issue at a time. What is surprising, perhaps, is the extent to which this idea has manifested itself in the marketplace. MagNet’s own conclusion is kinder to retail. Most monthly titles analyzed sit squarely in that 50-to-70 percent range; MagNet reports that the average subscription discount was 63 percent off, compared to just 27 percent off for quarterly titles. Accordingly, newsstand sales of those monthly titles dropped 15.2 percent over the two-year period ending December, 2015, while sales of quarterly titles fell 3.4 percent. None of this likely comes as a surprise to publishers, many of whose print editions are driven primarily by advertising as opposed to single-copy or subscription sales. It raises questions, however, about what a magazine offering subscription rates for 70, 80, or even 90 percent off the cover price is still doing on the newsstand to begin with. Those looking to maintain high ratebases by aggressively discounting subscription rates, however, may want to reconsider that strategy, according to a new study from MagNet. “We ask publishers to take a step back and reconsider their aggressive ratebases, their deeply discounted subscription offerings, and to again refocus on the newsstand, which we believe is, or could again be, their most profitable circulation revenue source,” reads the study.

Share Lillian Suwanrumpha/AFP/Getty ImagesPolice and military personnel use umbrellas to cover a stretcher as it is carried to a helicopter from an ambulance at a military airport in Chiang Rai, Thailand, on Monday, as rescue operations continue for those still trapped inside the cave in Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park in the Mae Sai district.Emergency crews in Thailand have reportedly brought another member of a soccer team to safety, weeks after 12 boys and their coach were trapped in a flooded cave network. The Associated Press reports an ambulance was seen leaving the area on Monday.The apparent rescue comes one day after the first four members of the team were saved, in a complicated and hours-long process that includes the use of multiple divers and a system of air tanks stashed along the escape route.The boys, ranging in age from 11-16, have been trapped in the cave system since June 23, after heavy rains flooded the network. Authorities say they want to get them out now, with the threat of more rain looming.“All conditions are still as good as they were yesterday,” Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said, as relayed by the AP. “The boys’ strength, the plan — today we are ready like before. And we will do it faster because we are afraid of the rain.”A deluge could overwhelm efforts to lower water levels in the caves – more than 32 million gallons of water were pumped out after the boys were found last Monday.Giving an update on the four boys who were pulled from the cave on Sunday, Narongsak said, “This morning they said they were hungry and wanted to eat khao pad grapao” — a popular Thai rice dish of meat stir-fried with basil and chili peppers.Copyright 2018 NPR.

Quiiki celebrates 10 years in the LGBT businessUNWTO and LGBT Tourism: Second Global report released at IGLTA Summit2016 IGLTA Honors announced annual awardsMore articles on eTurboNews click here The opinion pollFrom the survey on the opinions, and stories really experienced by the participants, including a newly-married couple, common data has emerged, and that is there is still much work to be done by small- and medium-sized businesses in the tourism sector. Alessio Virgili, IGLTA Ambassador for Italy on the IGLTA Global ConventionImportant news that raises the progress of the category supported for years by the LGBT World Organization was given at the recent Round Table organized by the AccorHotels Group under the patronage of the Consulate of the United States of America in Milan, AITGL (Italian Tourism Association Gay and Lesbian) and IGLTA (International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association) with the collaboration of Sonders and Beach Group, with positive feedback. The objective of the meeting was in anticipation of 2020, the date of the 37th IGLTA Global Convention on LGBTQ Tourism to be held in Milan.Located in the northern Lombardy region of Italy, Milan has prevailed on other equally-important capitals, with the Italian hotel industry as an international destination for the IGLTA segment. The city has matured the personalized, discrete, and non-discriminatory reception system to guarantee non-discriminatory reception for the LGBTQ market. “We at Accorhotels see the diversity,” commented Renzo Lorio, COO of AccorHotels Italy and Greece, “as a treasure for the company and above all as an integral part of the travel experience. We take care to promote continuous training to our staff based on non-discrimination, gender, culture, or sexual orientation. We are proud that Milan was chosen as the site of the 37th IGLTA Global Convention on LGBTQ Tourism in 2020 and are proud to be able to welcome the operators who will participate in it.”Alessio Virgili, IGLTA Ambassador for Italy, and promoter of the 2020 event that will host about 700 delegates from the media, tour operators, influencers, and decision leaders, attended the 35th Annual LGBT Convention in Toronto where Fabrice Houdart, Human Rights Officer at the High Commissioner for UN Human Rights, said “The Sonders and Beach international tourist group is the first Italian tourist reality to have adhered to the United Nations High Commissioner for Business Conduct Standards of Business.“What we want to achieve is a training plan from now to 2020 on the Milanese tourist supply chain, bringing case histories like AccorHotels Italia so as not to find unprepared the whole sector that will be directly involved in the 2020 event whose venue will be the Castello Sforzesco, prestigious ancient residence in the heart of Milan.” Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us)
Their outstanding academic performance, English fluency, leadership, and interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) have paid off: six Costa Rican students have won a scholarship for technical studies in the United States.María Nazareth Mata Castillo, Valeria Saborío Barquero, Diego Hernández Montero, Maxwell Jornae Pita Nelson, Josué Ortega Ramírez and Antony Ramírez Montero became the second class of recipients of the Dr. Ana Sittenfeld Specialized Technical Grants this week.The program is made possible by an alliance between the Costa Rica USA Foundation for Cooperation (CRUSA), the Costa Rican Investment Board (CINDE), the U.S. Embassy, United Airlines and the Costa Rican-North American Cultural Center (CCCN) through its educational advisory office, Education USA. Brought to you by the Costa Rica USA Foundation (CRUSA). Courtesy of CRUSA“For the CRUSA Foundation it’s essential to support the country in building capacity in strategic areas, especially to promote the knowledge economy and innovation,” said Marisela, Coordinator of Human Capital, Knowledge and Innovation, in a statement. “We know that the country is increasing its numbers of new professionals in science and technology, but it’s not enough to meet the demand of the business sector.”According to CINDE, multinational businesses are poised to double their number of jobs year-on-year if the supply of qualified personnel increases in STEM fields.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — One of the world’s most extraordinary gemstones, the Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond, will be on display at the National Museum of Natural History Jan. 28, 2010, through Aug. 1, 2010, according to a press release received by Elite Traveler. This will be the first time it has been shown to the public in more than 50 years. A diamond of rare deep-blue color and weighing 31.06 carats, the Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond will be presented in the National Gem Collection in the Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals, where the renowned Hope Diamond is on permanent view. The Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond has long been rumored to have originated from the same diamond mine in India as the Hope Diamond. Smithsonian scientists will explore this mystery while the diamond is in their care.“The Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond is an object of intrigue and legend, certainly one of the great gemstones of the world,” said Jeffrey Post, curator of the National Gem Collection. “We are thrilled to present this icon of history—and gemology—to the public for the first time since it was displayed at the Brussels World’s Fair in 1958.”The Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond has an illustrious history, dating back to 1664 when it was given by Philip IV of Spain to his daughter, the Infanta Margarita Teresa, upon her engagement to Emperor Leopold I of Austria. (In 1722, the diamond passed to the Wittelsbachs, members of the ruling House of Bavaria. It was here that the diamond derived its name.) After World War I, Bavaria became a republic and the crown jewels of the House of Wittelsbach were eventually sold at Christie’s in 1931 by auction.In an incident that has never fully been explained, the Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond disappeared before the auction and was replaced by a worthless piece of blue, cut glass. The actual Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond resurfaced in Belgium in 1951 and was eventually displayed—without attribution—at the “World Exhibition” in Brussels in 1958. The diamond was correctly identified in 1962 by Joseph Komkommer, a Belgian gem expert.In December 2008, the 35.56-carat stone was acquired by Laurence Graff, at auction in London. Mr. Graff’s expertise in gemology enabled him to see the potential in re-polishing the stone, bringing to it more life and color while at the same time making it internally flawless. The process brought the stone to its current weight of 31.06 carats. Throughout the very delicate process of re-polishing this famous stone, great care and attention was taken to retain its original features. Since then, it has achieved the top certification of internally flawless, type Ilb (the rarest), deep-blue. According to the Gemological Institute of America, the diamond “… is the largest Flawless or Internally flawless, Fancy Deep Blue, Natural Color we have graded to date…”“To have two of the world’s most historical stones—the Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond and the Hope Diamond—displayed together, is a testament to the stones’ history and importance,” said Laurence Graff, Chairman of Graff Diamonds International Ltd. “I believe the diamond’s appearance at the Smithsonian will represent another significant chapter in its remarkable history.”As a rare blue diamond from the 17th century, the Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond’s properties suggest a possible link to the same mines in India that produced the 45.52-carat Hope Diamond, which is recognized as the most near-perfect example of a blue diamond in existence. “During the Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond’s residence at the museum, special tests will be conducted by our research team in the Smithsonian’s state-of-the-art laboratories to determine whether these two gemstones share a provenance,” said Post. “Whether or not the Hope Diamond and the Wittelsbach-Graff Diamonds are related, the most important thing for our visitors is that they will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the two most extraordinary blue diamonds in the world.”The House of Graff is famous for the most fabulous jewels in the world. The name symbolizes rarity, beauty, excellence, and above all the best quality craftsmanship and diamonds. A diamond company extraordinaire, Graff produces polished diamonds from the rough sourced from mines around the world, making it one of the world’s leading diamond companies. Tens of thousands of carats of rough diamonds are cut and polished by a team of over 300 in Graff’s diamond cutting facility based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Each jewel is unique from the perfectly cut diamond to the magnificent hand finished piece. Laurence Graff, Chairman, has set an unsurpassed standard of excellence and innovation in the world of diamonds and fine jewelry. It has been said that more important gem quality diamonds have passed through his hands than any other dealer.
