UN not to help Myanmar with longterm camps for Rohingya

first_imgA view from outside Taung Pyo Letwe reception camp near the border with Bangladesh, in Rakhine state, Myanmar, during a trip by United Nations envoys to the region on 1 May 2018. Reuters File PhotoThe United Nations’ refugee agency will not provide humanitarian assistance to Rohingya Muslims who return to Myanmar if they are interned in camps, according to an internal position paper circulated days before the initial repatriation is due to start.The confidential briefing paper, dated this month and reviewed by Reuters on Tuesday, outlines the position of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) on the repatriation process, and reflects a desire not to be drawn into supporting long-term camps for the Muslim minority.A UNHCR spokeswoman said it did not comment on leaked documents.Myanmar and Bangladesh agreed in late October to begin in mid-November the repatriation of some of the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya who fled Myanmar last year to escape an army crackdown, despite warnings by the UN and aid agencies that conditions were not yet safe for their return.Myanmar has been building transit centres for the refugees that it says will be temporary, but many Rohingya say they fear the sites could become permanent because of harsh restrictions on movement imposed on the largely stateless minority.The UNHCR paper says the agency “will not provide individual assistance in situations of encampment, including in reception facilities or transit camps, unless they are clearly temporary in nature and used for the sole purpose of facilitating free movement to places of returnees’ origin or choice”.The document, which was circulated to diplomats, also advises other agencies not to assist with any such camps.Tens of thousands of Rohingya have been languishing in UN-supported camps and villages across western Myanmar since 2012, when they were driven out of their homes during a previous wave of ethnic violence. They were told the camps, razor-wire ringed areas they are forbidden to leave, would be temporary.Myanmar government spokesman Zaw Htay did not answer calls seeking comment on Tuesday.The US State Department said in a statement on Sunday any returnees to Myanmar “must have freedom of movement and not be confined to camps”.Not ReadyMore than 700,000 Rohingya fled to Bangladesh to escape a sweeping army crackdown in the north of Myanmar’s Rakhine state last year. UN-mandated investigators have accused the Myanmar military of “genocidal intent” and ethnic cleansing. Myanmar denies almost all of the allegations against its troops, saying security forces were battling terrorists.In the document, the UNHCR also outlines its involvement in the repatriation process organised by Myanmar and Bangladesh, saying that its officials will seek to ascertain whether several thousand Rohingya on a list of refugees identified for repatriation to Myanmar want to go back.Last week, more than 20 individuals on the list of potential returnees submitted by Bangladesh told Reuters they would refuse to return, saying they feared for their safety.More than 1 million Rohingya lived in Rakhine before the exodus of refugees that began in August last year. The state has long been riven with tension between ethnic Rakhine Buddhists and the Rohingya, who are mostly denied citizenship and face severe restrictions on their movement.The memo seen by Reuters reiterates the UNHCR’s stance that conditions in Rakhine are not conducive to returns.That view was repeated by UNHCR Assistant High Commissioner for Protection Volker Turk on Tuesday.”I think we are still not at that stage where the conditions are there that we would be able to facilitate or promote returns at this point in time,” Volker told a news briefing in Geneva.”So if there are indeed people who want to return, we have to absolutely make sure that we are able to certify that they do this on (the basis of) a free and informed choice.”The UNHCR called in the document for Myanmar to release more information about plans to return and reintegrate the Rohingya.On Sunday, Myanmar’s Minister for Social Welfare Win Myat Aye said preparations had been made for 2,251 people to be transported to two transit centres by boat on Thursday, while a second group of 2,095 could follow later by road.Once processed, they would be sent to another centre where they would be housed and fed until they could be resettled, he said.Returnees would only be allowed to travel within Maungdaw township if they accepted National Verification Cards, an identity document most Rohingya reject because they say it brands them as foreigners.Authorities have said they plan to build houses in 42 sites across Rakhine, but have not revealed the locations.In its memo, the UNHCR says the organization would provide support to refugees in “resettlement sites and model villages” in Rakhine state only if these were “located in places of refugees’ origin or choice”.last_img read more

Accidents kill 12 people per hour in Bangladesh

first_imgThe damaged pickup van after it hit a truck from behind in Mymensingh`s Bhaluka on 1 July, 2019. Photo: Mahmudul HasanPaban Majumder is disabled. He met with a road accident and underwent surgery on 30 June at the capital city’s National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopaedic Rehabilitation (commonly known as ‘pangu hospital’), where his right leg was removed from above the knee.Paban’s younger brother Madhab Majumder is looking after him. Madhab told Prothom Alo that around 10 in the morning of 9 June, Paban had been going to the market by motorbike in Hatia, Noakhali. He was hit by an ‘easy bike’ and was seriously injured. His right leg was broken. He was rushed to the Hatia upazila hospital and then later brought to a private hospital in Dhaka. He was finally brought to the government orthopaedic hospital.Madhab said he himself had been badly injured when he fell off a coconut tree a few years ago. His left arm was broken. They spent a lot on treatment but his arm is still crooked. He said even his two other brothers had met with accidents. One brother lost an eye in while operating a machine in a factory in Dhamrai in 2000. Another brother committed suicide in 2007.This file photo taken on 11 October 2016 shows the Samsung store in Paris. Samsung Electronics France was charged in April 2019 with `deceptive marketing practices`. Photo: AFPThis family from south Hatia seems to reflect the state of accidents in Bangladesh. According to the last national survey on accidents brought out in 2016, it was revealed that 12 persons died in accidents and injuries per hour in Bangladesh. Every hour 2287 persons were injured. And among those seriously injured, every hour 28 were rendered disabled.The report, ‘Bangladesh Health and Accident Survey 2016’, was prepared by the health ministry’s non-infectious disease control programme and the non-government Centre for Injury Prevention and Research, Bangladesh (CIPRB). A summary of the report was published, but not the entire report. Prothom Alo recently managed to get a copy of the full report.Head of the CIPRB data management unit Md Abu Taleb, speaking to Prothom Alo, said, “Accidents, injuries or wounds are a serious public health problem. These have a deep impact on a family, the society and the state. The public only comes to know of a very small percentage of the accidents including road accidents, suicide and drowning. The actually picture is much worse and alarming.”The World Health Organisation lists 13 categories of accidents and injuries. These are suicide, road accidents, falling down, being cut with sharp implements, being injured by a falling object, bitten by an animal or insect, violence, drowning, injury from a machine or equipment, electric shock, accidental suffocation and accidental intake of poison. The survey collected information on all these issues.In the survey, 299,216 persons of 70,000 families in towns and villages of 16 districts of the country were interviewed. The survey covered the period from March to June 2016.They survey stated that every year over 108,000 died of various accidents. Of these, 45,000 were children under 18 years of age. The main causes of accidental death among all age groups were suicide, road accidents, drowning and falling. Suicide was more common among women.Meanwhile, over 20 million people are injured in accidents every year, of which 242,000 result in permanent disability.Endless parade of deathsAccording to the survey, around 109,000 people die of various accidents and injuries every year in the country. That means, 298 die every day or, 12 every hour. The elderly mostly die by falling down.The survey report says that every year over 45,000 children under 18 years of age die in the country, that means, 125 in a day. And 37 per cent of this age group die of drowning. Other main causes of death in this group are suicide, road accidents and electrification.Among adults dying in accidents, the main causes are suicide, road accidents and falling down. Every day 170 persons die of these three reasons.A similar survey was run in 2003. A comparison of the two surveys shows that in the case of under-18’s, accidental deaths have increased other than in the case of drowning and animal bites. In 2003, every day there were 83 deaths. This is now 125. Deaths due to suicide, road accidents, electricity and falling, have increased.Information on injuries remain concealedMd Abu Taleb of CIPRB collected and analysed information in 2005 on accidents and injuries. He told Prothom Alo, “ Every day, every hour, somewhere in the country someone is in an accident. Sometimes it is because of one’s own fault, sometimes due to others’. Only a few of these incidents actually come to light.”The survey took into consideration the accidents or injuries for which a person had to take medical treatment or had to abstain from attending school or work. That reveals that over 20 million persons are injured in a year, that is, 2287 persons are injured on the roads, outdoors, at home and at the work place every hour.The most people are injured by falling. They fall from trees and high buildings, slip and fall on the streets, from buses, trains and rickshaws. They have to be treated for their injuries and their everyday life is disrupted. Every day over 16,000 people are injured in this manner.There has been no national level discussion on this issue. Road accidents have been discussed in recent times, but not all road accidents reach the media. The road accidents which make news are normally about accidents involving many persons being injured at one time or many persons of the same family being hurt or if a child or a student is injured. However, many more persons are injured in accidents but these incidents remain unknown. Over 3.4 million people are injured in accidents every year, that is, over 9000 a day.More people are injured by sharp implements than in road accidents. Around 12,500 persons are injured everyday by knives, cleavers, scythes, spades, shovels, blades and other sharp implements. That means over 4.5 million are injured in this manner every year.While a huge number of people receive injuries, 91.9 per cent of these accidents are of medium degree where they are treated for their injuries and released or miss just one day from school or work. Serious accidents constitute 5.4 per cent of the mishaps where the victims stay for 10 or less days at hospital, but do not require surgery. And 1.4 per cent of the people are seriously injured in accidents and are rendered permanently disabled.661 disabled per dayEvery year 241,000 people become disabled due to accidents or injuries. That means 661 are disabled per day.The most injuries are occurred by falling from heights. For about four decades now, the Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed (CRP) has been providing treatment and rehabilitation services for the paralysed. CRP executive director Md Shafiqul Islam told Prothom Alo, “Most of the patients who come here were paralysed after receiving serious injuries of the spine or back. According to our records, 40 per cent of the patients are injured when falling from heights. These include high trees, buildings, bridges and so on. Many patients come in the summer months when they fall from mango, lychee and jackfruit trees.”These people fall and are paralysed. Around 83,000 people are disabled in this manner. The next cause of disability is road accidents, with over 80,000 disabled in this manner every year.Consequences and the way aheadWhile presenting a research study on 26 May at the government’s planning division, Md Abu Taleb said, “Accidents have a deep impact on the family, close relatives and the society. Most parents speak of their children’s studies being hampered because of accidents.” Speaking to Prothom Alo, he said, when the only earning member of a family dies in an accident, the family become helpless. The children’s studies come to a halt. They may have dreamt of becoming a doctor, engineer, joining the police or anything, but they simply end up as child workers.The research findings are very similar with that of the survey conducted by the health ministry’s non-infectious disease control programme. This study on the impact and consequences of accidents was funded by the social science research council of the government’s planning division. Deputy secretary of the planning division Uttam Kumar Das told Prothom Alo, “I had no idea that the problems caused by accidents were so big, so serious. We will send the results of this study to various ministries. The data will also be used in drawing up national policies.”The survey report had several recommendations. It was said that accidents would have to be included on the priority list of the health sector and a national accident strategic paper would have to be prepared and implemented. Also, experiences of any positive initiatives to prevent accidents should also be shared.CIPRB and icddr,b have jointly been running a project called Anchal since 2006, aimed at preventing drowning in water. The project is being implemented in 10 upazilas of 7 districts. Executive director of CIPRB Fazlul Huq told Prothom Alo, “Child deaths due to drowning have fallen by 50 per cent in our work area. All accidents can be reduced if such effective initiatives are taken up.”* This piece appeared in the print edition of Prothom Alo and has been rewritten by Ayesha Kabirlast_img

CordCutting Sped Up in 2018 Biggest PayTV Ops Shed 32 Million Subscribers

first_imgMany traditional pay-TV subs have downgraded to “skinny” internet bundles, including DirecTV Now and Dish’s Sling TV, which typically are cheaper than cable and satellite packages.But so-called “virtual multichannel programming video distributors,” or vMPVDs, haven’t offset the cord-cutting exodus. A lift in vMVPD subscribers in the first half of 2018 produced a slight increase overall in pay-TV subs. But that “inflected in Q3 2018 and materially worsened in Q4 2018,” BTIG Research analyst Rich Greenfield wrote in a blog post Wednesday.“The clear implication is that year-over-year subscriber trends for programmers that improved throughout 2018 are set to worsen again in 2019,” Greenfield wrote. The analyst is widely known as bearish on the pay-TV sector, frequently using the hashtag #goodluckbundle in his commentary (as he did in Wednesday’s post).The cord-cutting problem promises to grow even more exacerbated as new subscription-streaming services from Disney (Disney+), WarnerMedia and NBCUniversal hit the market starting later this year. Those will via for consumers’ entertainment dollars against SVOD players like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video.While virtual pay-TV services have a much lower subscriber-acquisition cost, they also have higher churn — because it’s far easier to cancel the OTT service versus cutting cable or satellite TV.AT&T saw the effect of this in dramatic fashion in Q4. DirecTV Now lost 267,000 net subscribers in the quarter, after the company ended virtually all promotional pricing offers, some as low as $10 per month, by the end of 2018. AT&T had about 500,000 DirecTV Now subs on promo prices, and “they are all gone or they stepped up” to a full-price plan, CFO John Stephens told analysts on the telco’s earnings call.One note: Dish suffered record satellite TV net loss of 381,000 customers in the fourth quarter of 2018, which was driven by the ongoing blackouts of HBO and Univision programming. That said, Dish’s satellite losses didn’t result in commensurate gains among its traditional rivals.Meanwhile, it’s worth pointing out that the numbers crunched here don’t account for subscriber gains at new OTT-only entrants: YouTube TV, Hulu With Live TV, Sony PlayStation Vue, FuboTV and Philo. At this point, the group may be moving the needle only slightly for total pay-TV sub numbers. Hulu, for example, claims it first hit 1 million customers for its live-TV service last fall and FuboTV said it had nearly 250,000 paid subscribers at the end of September.

That’s an acceleration from estimated sector-wide declines of 3.7% in 2017 and 2% in 2016.Comcast, AT&T/DirecTV, Charter, Dish and Verizon all sustained year-over-year net pay-TV losses, as more consumers dropped pricey bundles in favor of internet streaming video services like Netflix and free, over-the-air broadcast TV. But the agony fell disproportionately on DirecTV and Dish, which dropped 1.24 million and 1.13 million satellite subs, respectively, over 2018. (See table below.)

December Sees Promising Jump in Builder Confidence

first_imgDecember Sees Promising Jump in Builder Confidence Share December 17, 2013 472 Views Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Confidence Home Sales Homebuilders Investors Lenders & Servicers National Association of Home Builders Service Providers Wells Fargo 2013-12-17 Tory Barringercenter_img Having tread water for the last several months, “”builder confidence””: in the market for newly built, single-family homes improved four points to match August’s eight-year high.[IMAGE]According to the “”National Association of Home Builders'””: (NAHB)/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI), builder sentiment picked up in December to end the year at 58. The index first climbed to that level in August before falling to 57 in September and 54 in October and November.””Following a two-month pause in the index, this uptick is due in part to release of the pent-up demand caused by the uncertainty generated by the October government shutdown,”” said NAHB chief economist David Crowe. “”We continue to look for a gradual improvement in the housing recovery in the year ahead.””Derived from a monthly survey of builder perspectives regarding single-family home sales (both current and in the near future) and prospective buyer traffic, the HMI measures expectations on a scale of “”good,”” “”fair,”” and “”poor.”” The scores for each of the three components are then used to calculate a seasonally adjusted index in which any number above 50 indicates an overall positive sentiment.After struggling through most of the year’s first half, the headline index climbed above the 50 mark in June for the first time since 2006; it has stayed in the 50 range ever since.””This is definitely an encouraging sign as we move into 2014,”” said NAHB chairman Rick Judson. “”The HMI is up 11 points since December of 2012 and has been above 50 for the past seven months. This indicates that an increasing number of builders have a positive view on where the industry is going.””December’s gain reflected improvements in all three of the index’s components. The index gauging current sales conditions jumped six points this month to 64, while the index gauging expectations for sales six months from now rose two points to 62. Meanwhile, the measure for prospective buyer traffic increased three points to 44.Three of the survey’s four regions showed improvements in their own HMIs this month. The Midwest’s index recovered from a drop in November to end the year at 62; the index in the South increased six points to 61; and the West’s index rose to 60.The Northeast was the only exception, posting a four-point drop to a reading of 40. in Datalast_img read more
