Camp for refugees and Eritrea asylum seekers (Photo by: Andia/Universal Images Group via Getty Images) UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie dancing with young refugees who have just pursuaded her to join a performance put on by the young refugees at Heshima Kenya Girl Empowerment Project.Heshima Kenya is the first organization in Kenya devoted to protecting unaccompanied minors and separated children and youth between the ages of 13 to 23 from Somalia, Ethiopia, DR Congo, Sudan, Rwanda, and Burundi, as they experience the highest rates of exploitation and abuse. Nearly 70% of the young women supported by Heshima Kenya report having experienced some form of sexual and gender-based violence, though this percentage is believed to be closer to 80% as most do not report these incidents.The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) on Thursday said it’s facing a critical funding gap to meet the COVID-19 related needs of refugees in Ethiopia.A monthly fact sheet published by UNHCR said it has only received 3.4 million U.S. dollars out of 34.7 million U.S. dollars required to meet the basic health, medical supplies as well as general COVID-19 preventive and response needs of refugees in Ethiopia.“The funding shortfall coupled with delayed delivery of international procurement orders for Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs), medicines and medical supplies are among the key challenges hampering the response efforts,” said the UNHCR monthly fact sheet.As of June 2020, the UNHCR has registered 766,563 refugees and asylum seekers in Ethiopia, most of whom are housed in refugee camps in six regional states.Ethiopia currently hosts the second-largest refugee population in Africa, next to Uganda. Refugees in Ethiopia primarily come from Eritrea, South Sudan, Somalia, and Sudan, according to figures from the Ethiopian government.Conflict and drought in neighboring countries continue to force people to seek refuge in Ethiopia, which has a long tradition of hosting refugees.Ethiopia has also in recent years hosted an increasing number of refugees fleeing conflicts in Yemen and Syria.Ethiopia’s confirmed COVID-19 cases reached 8,475 after 294 new COVID-19 positive cases were confirmed, the Ethiopian Ministry of Health (MoH) said on Wednesday evening.Relatedcenter_img Ethiopia confirms eight new COVID-19 caseslast_img read more

Qualcomm Delivers 802.11ac Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO to Address Enterprise BYOD and Other Network Challenges

first_imgQualcomm Incorporated has announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Atheros, is easing data congestion across enterprise networks with a feature-rich, high-performance enterprise connectivity platform. To support the rapidly expanding number of devices and high volume of traffic traveling across enterprise networks, Qualcomm Atheros is delivering technology that enables sophisticated access points (APs) to take advantage of state-of-the-art Wi-Fi® connectivity and improve network security, capacity and performance, while staying well within established power-over-Ethernet (PoE) limits. The new reference design includes the powerful, yet efficient Qualcomm® Internet Processor (IPQ) and the revolutionary features of the Qualcomm® VIVE™ 11ac solutions with MU-MIMO technology, also known as Qualcomm® MU | EFX.Qualcomm Atheros’ enterprise connectivity platform is receiving support from leading enterprise original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), including Ruckus Wireless. The new MU-MIMO technology in 802.11ac Wave 2 is critical for injecting more capacity and supporting more concurrent devices in next generation Wi-Fi networks to keep up with relentless mobile usage and traffic growth. Qualcomm Atheros’ leadership and innovations in 802.11ac are integral to advancing Wi-Fi’s capabilities and continued viability in enterprise and service provider networks, and will help Qualcomm bring powerful, best-in-class Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi solutions to market that will meet the challenges created by ever-growing demand. Qualcomm Atheros’ second generation VIVE solutions with Qualcomm MU | EFX technology make Wi-Fi networks up to three times faster—empowering a single AP to serve hundreds of devices with more robust performance than would be possible with previous 11ac products. QCA999x, Qualcomm Atheros’ dual-band, 4-stream 11ac family of solutions, take advantage of new MU-MIMO features to maximize performance for both new and legacy devices on the network.VIVE solutions also support advanced enterprise features, such as seamless mobility with Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Passpoint™, precise indoor location capabilities and high resolution spectral analysis, while 4.9 GHz and 5/10 MHz bandwidth channels further set the enterprise platform apart.

Due to the requirement of advanced processing capabilities in today’s high performance networks, Qualcomm Atheros’ enterprise platform also includes the robust power of the IPQ806x processor. IPQ-based enterprise APs benefit from a low power profile that supports full-performance 11ac with Qualcomm MU | EFX while staying within PoE budgets – which means that these APs can be powered by standard Ethernet cables. IPQ’s dual-core 1.4 GHz Qualcomm® Krait™ central processing unit (CPU) allows the processor to conserve power with dynamic voltage and frequency scaling, which automatically adjusts CPU frequency and associated voltage based on work load. Additionally, greater power efficiency reduces the amount of heat generated by network equipment to enable smaller, more cost-effective products, eliminating the need for fans and heat-sinks. Qualcomm Krait is a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.last_img read more

FIFA blunders in congratulating Team Wellington on reaching Club World Cup

first_imgsoccer FIFA made a mighty blunder in congratulating Team Wellington on becoming the third New Zealand team to qualify for the Club World Cup. They clinched a 10-3 aggregate victory over Lautoka by winning the second leg 4-3 at Churchill Park in Fiji to win the OFC Champions League final on Sunday, which confirmed their place among the world’s elite of club football in December’s tournament in the United Arab Emirates. But Fifa’s official Instagram account sent their congratulations to Team Wellington by sharing a photo of Kiwi rivals Auckland City lifting the trophy instead. Commenters on the post were quick to highlight the mistake that went online on Sunday night. “Seriously @fifaworldcup very disappointed to see this post. This year’s OFC champions are @team.welly this image is of Auckland City football team,” said user raghavanvng. “The picture is of Auckland City FC not Team Wellington!” added frankys_life97. Auckland City have qualified for the Club World Cup nine times, including in each of the last seven years, a run that was halted by Team Wellington in this year’s semi-finals. Waitakere United have qualified twice, in 2007 and 2008, losing in the opening play-off both times. The tournament involves the winners of the most recent Champions League and the next kings of Europe will be crowned on Sunday morning when Real Madrid and Liverpool contest the final in Kiev.last_img read more

Miles not going to Michigan

first_imgBATON ROUGE – Strike three!For the third time in seven years, Michigan has an opening for a football coach and the new man will not be former offensive lineman and former assistant coach Les Miles, who expects to remain at LSU for an 11th season in 2015. It is unclear which entity – Michigan or Miles – was doing the swinging this time if either one was.Miles confirmed that he will not be going to Michigan at a press conference in the football facility Monday night after his team began practicing for its game against Notre Dame in the Dec. 30 Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tennessee. Miles also said that Michigan did not contact his agent, George Bass, to gauge Miles’ interest in the job, which was reported by a pair of websites that cover Michigan athletics on Dec. 9. A member of LSU’s athletic department told Gannett Louisiana at the time that Bass was not contacted by Michigan.Asking not to be quoted directly, Miles said Michigan should be allowed to look for a new coach free of his name being tossed about during the search process as it was after the 2007 and 2010 seasons when Michigan hired Rich Rodriguez and Brady Hoke, respectively.Miles was offered the Michigan job by then-Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon in January of 2011 during an interview at Miles’ condominium near Tiger Stadium, and Miles turned it down, according to LSU Board of Supervisors member Stanley Jacobs, former LSU athletic director Skip Bertman and another board member at the time. Shortly thereafter, Michigan hired Hoke. Miles then led LSU to a 13-0, SEC championship season in 2011 before losing the BCS national championship game to Alabama.Miles was considered for the Michigan opening but not offered it late in the 2007 season, which ended with LSU winning the BCS national championship. Stories of Miles, 61, possibly going to Michigan were not reported by as many major news outlets this time around over the last several weeks as it was after the 2007 and 2010 seasons when Michigan was looking for a new coach.“I enjoy the players – these guys that I’m capable of coaching,” Miles said Monday night when asked about his first 10 years at LSU. “They come from areas that allow them to work hard, enjoy working hard. There’s a tradition and a culture here that we’ve kind of established.“The young men who come in here really enjoy stepping into this room and being a part of that culture. I think this team has a potential to play in championships. And frankly, this is going to be a great team for quite some time.”NOTES: LSU backup tailback Kenny Hilliard (shoulder) is expected to play in the Music City Bowl. Starting center Elliott Porter (ankle) is not expected back. “We’re thinking that we’ll get Hilliard back. Very optimistic there. Porter, not so optimistic.” … The Tigers will begin working on Notre Dame specifically in their third practice of bowl preparations on Wednesday, Miles said. … LSU will have practiced for nine consecutive days from Dec. 15 through Dec. 23 before taking Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off. The Tigers will practice on campus on Dec. 26 and 27 before leaving for Nashville after practice on the 27th.last_img read more
