LebaneseIsraeli peace threatened by repeated attacks – Ban Kimoon

In his latest report on the implementation of resolution 1701, Mr. Ban says the ongoing instability within Lebanon is limiting progress and posing “a direct challenge… to the stability of the country as a whole.”He cites the fighting between Fatah al-Islam militants and Lebanese security forces at a Palestinian refugee camp, the worst internal fighting since the civil war ended in 1990; the series of explosions around Beirut, including that which killed a Lebanese parliamentarian and nine others; a bomb attack last month on a UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) convoy that killed six peacekeepers; and the firing of Katyusha rockets from southern Lebanon into Israel.The Secretary-General stresses that the deadly attack against the UNIFIL convoy or other incidents will not deter the UN from playing its part to implement resolution 1701.But he emphasizes that greater progress is needed on several key issues – including the enforcement of the arms embargo in Lebanon – if the cessation of hostilities is to become a permanent ceasefire.“I am disturbed by the persistent reports pointing to breaches of the arms embargo along the Lebanese-Syrian border,” he writes, noting that the report of the Lebanon Independent Border Assessment Team, which he commissioned, concludes that the border is not sufficiently secure and that Lebanese capabilities are lacking.Existing border crossing points are not well controlled by Lebanese authorities, and the procedures for these crossings are not uniform, resulting in an unregulated flow of passengers, vehicles and cargo, according to the border assessment report.That report, also released today, recommends a series of measures to “significantly improve” Lebanon’s border security regime, and Mr. Ban urges the country’s Government to implement the report in full.The recommendations include: the establishment of a dedicated border guard agency; the creation of a multi-agency mobile force focused on arms smuggling, with the power to make arms seizures; and the redesign and restructure of border crossing points to ensure there is greater control of the border.In the progress report on resolution 1701, Mr. Ban says he remains hopeful that a long-term solution can be found as the region nears the first-year anniversary of the 34-day conflict, which led to the deaths of an estimated 1,200 Lebanese and 160 Israelis, the destruction of much of Lebanon’s infrastructure and severe damage to both nations’ economies.He stresses that, aside from the enforcement of the Lebanese arms embargo, progress is needed on several fronts, including on the release of the abducted Israeli soldiers and the Lebanese prisoners, the halting of Israeli air violations and the issue of sovereignty over Shab’a Farms.He also urges the international community to provide support to the Lebanese armed forces to make sure that they can extend and exercise full authority over all of the country’s territory. 10 July 2007Lebanon is mired in a debilitating political crisis, facing continuing attacks aimed at undermining its sovereignty and territorial integrity, which makes it harder to fully implement the Security Council resolution ending last year’s war between Israel and Hizbollah, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says. read more

Mandate of UN peacebuilding office in GuineaBissau extended by a year

In an exchange of letters over the last week, the Security Council accepted the recommendation of Secretary-General Kofi Annan that UNOGBIS’ mandate be extended until 31 December next year.Earlier this week, in his latest progress report on the work of the UN mission, Mr. Annan warned that Guinea-Bissau’s reconstruction remains so fragile that the country’s leading political figures must demonstrate to potential international donors and other economic partners that they can put national interests ahead of their own and resolve their disputes peacefully.“Without political stability, development cannot advance and cooperation with international partners, including investors, cannot be guaranteed,” he wrote.After receiving a briefing today from the Secretary-General’s recently appointed representative in Guinea-Bissau, Shola Omoregie, the Security Council issued a press statement voicing members’ concern over “the precarious political, security and economic conditions.”The statement also endorsed Mr. Annan’s appeal for the country’s political leaders to show restraint and focus on development, good governance and reconciliation.Mr. Annan cited an International Monetary Fund (IMF) mission to discuss emergency assistance, planned for next month, as an example of the kinds of outside support that Guinea-Bissau needs. Donors at a round table held last month in Geneva pledged to give $262 million to Guinea-Bissau, well short of the goal of $538 million.Government revenue is also below target because of lower than expected fees from fishing licences, hurt by a delay in negotiating a new agreement with the European Union (EU), and taxes on the export of cashew nuts, which have been hit by the combination of a rise in the producer price and a drop in world prices.Under the streamlined mandate, UNOGBIS will concentrate on promoting mediation and using good offices functions to try to reduce the current divisions in the country.The mission will also, among other tasks, assist with security sector reforms, promote respect for the rule of law and human rights, facilitate efforts to curb the proliferation of small arms and light weapons and spur greater cooperation with the African Union (AU), the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries, the European Union (EU) and other international partners.UNOGBIS was created in 1999 to help Guinea-Bissau emerge from the devastation of a civil war in which thousands were killed, wounded or forced from their homes. read more

Pakistani offensive against Taliban militants uproots over 400000 people – UN agency

According to the latest Pakistani Government registration figures, 435,429 people, including some 183,000 children, have fled from combat zones in North Waziristan agency since mid-June.The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said that most of the families have sought refuge in different parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, with reports of families also now arriving in Punjab and Balochistan. Almost all the internally displaced people are being hosted by local communities.“The Government of Pakistan and our UN and humanitarian community partners expect up to half a million people could be displaced by the current military operations,” UNHCR spokesman Dan McNorton told journalists in Geneva. This would bring the total number of displaced people from the tribal regions of the country to 1.5 million – including 930,000 uprooted in various waves since 2009.UN officials met this week with Pakistani authorities and offered support for humanitarian operations in the area of protection and registration, as well as the provision of emergency relief items. The Government had made a formal request to the UN for assistance.Mr. McNorton said a key challenge for aid agencies is access to the areas where the displaced are arriving. “The UN and partners have called for full and unimpeded access to the affected populations to allow the delivery of humanitarian aid,” he stated.Last week, UNHCR reported it was helping authorities in neighbouring Afghanistan to register and assist thousands of people who fled the fighting in Pakistan’s tribal regions. read more

We are being tested again Ban warns as UN marks 70 years

“More than a million inmates, primarily Jews, were brutally and systematically killed in the place where the Nazis introduced the monstrous concept of ‘industrialized murder.’ Among the other victims were non-Jewish Poles, political prisoners, Soviet prisoners of war, Sinti and Roma, homosexuals, disabled persons and Jehovah’s witnesses,” Mr. Ban said in his remarks on the day. “Unprecedented in human history, this mass killing was motivated by the perverse, race-based ideology of the Nazis, who sought to track down and kill every last Jew and any others they considered to be inferior,” added the Secretary-General. The International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust is marked every year on 27 January, the date on which Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated in 1945. This year’s observance, on the theme ‘Liberty, Life and the Legacy of the Holocaust Survivors’, coincides with two milestone events: the 70th anniversary of the Second World War’s end and the founding of the UN. “Humankind united to overcome the Nazi menace. Today, we are being tested again. Minorities everywhere often face bigotry. Sectarian tensions and other forms of intolerance are on the rise,” Mr. Ban emphasized as he pledged the commitment of the UN to protecting the vulnerable, promoting fundamental human rights and upholding the freedom, dignity and worth of every person. The overall mission of the United Nations was shaped by the tragedy of the Second World War and the Holocaust, the Secretary-General explained. Both the UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights enshrine the principles of human rights for all peoples around the world. “The violence and bias we see every day are stark reminders of the distance still to travel in upholding human rights, preventing genocide and defending our common humanity. We must redouble our efforts to eradicate the deep roots of hatred and intolerance. People everywhere must unite to stop the cycles of discord and build a world of inclusion and mutual respect,” Mr. Ban declared. For the past decade, the Holocaust and the UN Outreach Programme has mobilized students and educators around the world to help us achieve these goals, the UN chief said. “We are grateful to our many partners including Holocaust survivors who have contributed to this work, which spanned 42 countries in the past year alone.” This year’s events include the annual ceremony, exhibits, a film screening, discussions and a special exhibit that recognizes the work of the Holocaust and the UN Outreach Programme since its creation 10 years ago by the UN General Assembly. With UN Headquarters closed today due to inclement weather, the annual General Assembly commemoration of the International Day has been rescheduled for Wednesday, 28 January. The event will feature remarks from, among others, the Secretary-General, Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin, a Holocaust survivor, and a Soviet Army veteran. Mr. Avner Shalev, Chairman of the Yad Vashem Directorate, will deliver the keynote address. Grammy-award winning violinist Miri Ben-Ari and Cantor Shimmy Miller, Congregation Ahavath Torah, will recite the memorial prayers accompanied by keyboardist Daniel Gildar. read more

Gray beats Scarlet 31 in womens volleyball scrimmage

Daniel Chi / For The LanternThen-junior Kaitlyn Leary hits the ball during a game against Northwestern on Nov. 7, at St. John Arena. OSU won, 3-1.The No. 23 Ohio State women’s volleyball team held its annual Scarlet and Gray scrimmage at St. John Arena Saturday, marking the first action for the 2013 freshman class. The Gray team won the scrimmage, 3-1, in four sets.Coach Geoff Carlston said “the game of volleyball doesn’t care how old you are,” and that he expects the freshmen to be ready to contribute.“They’ll all be on the court at some point or another,” Carlston said. “It’s just a matter of how quickly they get into the mix and learn.”Kaitlyn Leary, a senior outside hitter, said she is excited about the group of new players.“I think it’s a really strong group as a whole,” she said. “All of them have stepped up.”Leary called freshman middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe’s play in the scrimmage “outstanding,” but Sandbothe has not been the only newcomer to impress.Both outside hitter Kylie Randall and defensive specialist Valeria León played well in their first organized contest as Buckeyes, according to Leary. She said Randall “stepped up” and León has been developing the serving part of her game well.Sandbothe said the newcomers tended to be nervous, but the scrimmage was still “a lot of fun.”“(I) kind of like getting to walk through what game days are usually like,” Sandbothe said. “It’s definitely a lot different than high school or club.”Beyond the freshmen, Carlston praised the aggressive play of junior outside hitter Erin Sekinger.“I thought she got after it pretty good,” Carlston said. “I’m really happy to see that because it’s something we’ve been pushing everyone to do.”He added that Sekinger has made the biggest strides out of any player on the team since last season.Sekinger recorded 13 kills in three sets for the Scarlet team and added three in one set for the Gray. Leary mirrored those numbers, as the two tied for the match lead with 16 total kills.Sandbothe played on both squads as Carlston switched the teams after each set. Junior setter Taylor Sherwin led all players with 40 assists.The Buckeyes are set to open their season Aug. 30 at the NIU Invitational in DeKalb, Ill. They are scheduled to play three games in two days against Liberty, Green Bay and Northern Illinois before returning to Columbus for an exhibition against the Poland National Team Sept. 4. read more

Kirk Herbstreit talks Ohio State football College GameDay

Fans play corn hole on The Oval during ESPN’s College Gameday on Nov. 21. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo Editor On Saturday, the statue of William Oxley Thompson will have some company, as ESPN’s College GameDay will be broadcasting live on the Oval in anticipation of the game between No. 3 Ohio State and No. 9 Michigan State. Despite all of OSU’s success on the gridiron, it has been years since College GameDay has come to Columbus for a game. “I can’t believe that we have not been here since 2010,” College GameDay analyst and OSU alumnus Kirk Herbstreit said. “We used to come here, kind of like what we are doing right now with Alabama where we would come once or twice a year.”Every week, College GameDay picks a highly touted game where it will broadcast its show live on Saturday morning. The show typically is on the particular campus from Thursday to Saturday.Regardless of whether or not ESPN is broadcasting the game, the show will go wherever the week’s most anticipated matchup is. “We do tend to travel no matter where the game is … we just travel to what we think is the best game,” Herbstreit said. “It’s been a lot of fun to see the fanbases when we show up. It’s like that that campus will become the face of the sport for 48 hours.”With such a popular show finally making a pitstop in at OSU, many students are excited for the chance to witness it in person.Jarrett Forkey, a fourth-year in chemical engineering, students are planning on arriving the Oval, where the set is placed, early in the morning to get hyped for the game, which is scheduled to kickoff at 3:30 p.m.“It will be a lot more rambunctious than people think,” Forkey said. “It’s been awhile since GameDay’s been here. It’s been awhile since Michigan State’s been here. There are a lot of seniors playing their last game.“There is a lot of excitement here at Ohio State.”Herbstreit agrees that the students will be ready for the game come kickoff.“I expect to see that typical Ohio Stadium nutty atmosphere,” Herbstreit said. “You have one or two games a year where Ohio State feels (the Buckeyes could be upset), and then it’s a proactive atmosphere. It’s where you are creating the sacks or you are creating the interceptions. My guess is that’s the kind of crowd it will be and it will help Ohio State’s defense and their cause.”The hype for College GameDay and for the game that afternoon, according to Herbstreit, really shows the growth of college football as a sport.“Fans get crazier and crazier. That just speaks volumes about college football,” Herbstreit said. “The sport has never been more popular and there’s never been more buzz. The passion is universal and we embrace it. That’s what makes this sport so special.” read more

College coaches crossing the line

Ohio State football players don’t know just how nice they have it.Not only do they enjoy incredible practice and workout facilities, a tradition-rich program and prominent national exposure on a weekly basis, but they don’t even get locked in a shed, verbally humiliated or punched in the face when they screw up.That’s a perk worth more than all the training tables, stipends and bowl gifts put together.In a college football environment that has seen Mark Mangino of Kansas fired for physically and verbally abusing his players (allegedly), Texas Tech’s Mike Leach canned for locking receiver Adam James in a darkened tool shed (allegedly) and the dismissal of South Florida’s Jim Leavitt for grabbing a player by the throat and striking him (allegedly) for a miscue on special teams, these Buckeyes should be counting their lucky stars to have a coach like Jim Tressel.Just ask Ray Small.If anyone on this past season’s OSU team could have benefited from a good lock-down or face smacking, it was him. If Tressel’s policy on missed classes, bobbled punts and smoking weed (allegedly) included such humiliations, Small would have looked like Rocky Balboa after 12 rounds with Clubber Lang.My prediction for Small’s career had he played for coaches Mangino or Leavitt?Pain.Probably a better case for comparison would be freshman Duron Carter’s treatment. His case is a little more salient because, like Adam James, he is the son of a former pro football player who now has the national platform provided by being a television football analyst.In light of his academic failures (allegedly), Carter was merely suspended by Tressel before the Rose Bowl rather than locked away in a janitor’s closet at the RPAC.Tressel has had his fair share of malcontents and miscreants to deal with. Early in his career at OSU, Tressel was forced to decide the fate of senior quarterback Steve Bellisari for driving under the influence. The following season, Louis Irizarry and Ira Guilford were arrested for attempted robbery.Each time, Tressel had a hard decision to make. In Bellisari’s case, it meant benching his starting quarterback for the game against arch-rival Michigan. For Irizarry and Guilford, he had to make the difficult choice to sever their ties with the program. For a man of coach Tressel’s integrity and compassion, that was certainly a difficult decision to make.To be fair, OSU is not unfamiliar to the tactics of a harsh disciplinarian. Some of our campus roads and buildings are named after one of the most aggressive coaches ever to stalk the sidelines of a college football game: Woody Hayes.Just ask Charlie Bauman. He was the Clemson nose guard who had the audacity to intercept a pass in the Gator Bowl and was then on the receiving end of a throat punch delivered by Hayes on the sideline.At that point, OSU officials’ hands were tied and they had no other choice then to let the venerable Hayes go. Just as the athletic directors at Kansas, Texas Tech and South Florida had no choice.Gone are the days of mothers and fathers sending their sons off to task-masters such as Hayes or former Indiana basketball coach Bob Knight to be forged into men in a crucible of fire.In their place are parents like Ken Small and Craig James who are laboring under the illusion that just because their sons lit up the scoreboards for their respective high schools they are somehow entitled to being handled with kid gloves on the collegiate level.Given this level of coddling, once these student-athletes are outside of their insulated, athletic bubbles, they can hardly be blamed for thinking that the world revolves around them.Tressel can’t save every soul that comes under his tutelage. Some are beyond redemption before they ever set foot on campus (See: Maurice Clarett). But his track record is better than most, and for that, Buckeye fans should be proud.So three of the more brutish coaches in the ranks of college football are looking for work and the athletes left behind know that they are the ones holding the trump cards if their new coaches tick them off.Allegedly. read more

Wheres the beef Lebanon actually

first_imgTHE LEBANESE GOVERNMENT has sanctioned the resumption of Irish beef into the country.Lebanese authorities had banned the importation of live cattle and beef from Ireland following the BSE crisis in 2001.Prior to that, exports of Irish beef to Lebanon were worth approximately €5m a year.The ban on the importing of live cattle was lifted in May 2001, following high-level contacts between the Department of Agriculture and Lebanese authorities. However, the agreement did not extend to beef.That ban, along with a restriction on sheepmeat and cooked meats, has now been lifted, something that pleased agriculture minister Simon Coveney.“This market will provide another valuable outlet for Irish product and will further enhance Ireland`s reputation as a source of high quality sustainably produced food. It follows the recent re-opening of other markets notably Japan during my recent visit with the Taoiseach there. “These market openings are key to growing Irish exports as seen in last week’s Bord Bia figures for 2013 as well as helping achieve the targets set out in the Food Harvest 2020 Strategy.”Read: IMPACT: Food exports could be hit by industrial action at Department of AgricultureRead: Fed up with the full Irish?

Zlatan Ibrahimovic reveals his biggest influence in football

first_imgSwedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic granted an interview to L’Equipe where he gave a surprising statement about his real influence in football.We have lived inside a lie for all these years, we always thought that Ronaldo Nazario was Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s biggest influence in football but we were mistaken.The Swedish striker just revealed the truth about this during an interview with L’Equipe where he spoke about the time when he played for Juventus during a small period of time and met the player who taught him the biggest lessons in the profession, that man is French midfielder, Patrick Vieira.It’s weird I know, but if you stop to think about it, this revelation actually makes a lot of sense.During that period when Zlatan Ibrahimovic had just moved out of his bubble in Holland where he became a world-class player at Ajax from Amsterdam, coming to Serie A was one of his biggest career moves and he arrived in a squad that was filled with some of the biggest names in football at the moment.There he would meet a couple of French legends who quickly grounded him and made him realize that he was a flawed individual, one who could achieve greatness but needed to learn a few life lessons first.Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira wishes Zlatan Ibrahimovic good luck at Manchester United:— Metro Sport (@Metro_Sport) July 1, 2016At the time, there was actually no one better than Vieira to teach him those lessons and both players quickly developed a close bond. Even when Juventus was part of that match-fixing scandal in 2006, the two of them decided to play for Internazionale Milano together and they continued to make their friendship flourish.This reveal is really weird because now the video of Zlatan Ibrahimovic admiring Brazilian Ronaldo when they met at a Milano Derby later on, just looks a bit creepy now because we always believed that Zlatan’s biggest influence was the legendary Brazilian striker.But then again, Patrick Vieira does look like a man who could teach a few things to anyone about football, maybe that’s why he decided to become a manager after his career ended.Zlatan Ibrahimovic broke the news to eveybody on his latest interview to French journal L’Equipe, where he also spoke about the possibility of going back to Paris Saint-Germain as a manager in the future, hinting that this could be the next career path for him.Mario BalotelliCorini tells Balotelli to “raise his game” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 According to the Brescia coach, Mario Balotelli “needs to raise his game if he wants to face Juventus” as his team is set to host Bologna.Zlatan Ibrahimovic reveals Patrick Vieira was the biggest influence on his career – “he was always on my back, it was never good enough”. #Juventus #FCIM— footballitalia (@footballitalia) November 9, 2018“When I met him at Juventus, he had a really different mentality from the other players I’d known,” Ibrahimovic told L’Equipe.“He was always on my back, I thought I was doing things right but it was never good enough. He showed me that you have to give more, want more.”“He taught me that we play as we train. That’s how it works: if you train well, you play well. I don’t need to tell you the player and the professional he was.”“He was a phenomenal player who will remain in history, but I’m happy I knew the player and person. He deeply influenced my game by pushing me to give 120 percent every day, every game.”“I’m not surprised he became a Coach, he already had that in him: his experience, his maturity, his way of helping others.”“He was always available to talk. He really helped a lot of players, not just me. There were big stars at Juve at the time, and to please them you had to give a lot, you got nothing for free,” he concluded.Zlatan Ibrahimović: “Vieira is one of the best players I played with. He was a monster. He taught me so much.”— Football Tweet (@Football__Tweet) December 2, 2015What do you think about Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s unexpected revelation about his biggest influence in football?

The Guidelines, updated from a 2009 document, provide detailed recommendations for the interpretation and reporting of coronary CT angiography. Due to changes in technology and scope of practice, the current version is aligned with modern clinical practice in coronary CTA. These recommendations, like the preceding version, were developed as an educational tool for practitioners to continue to improve the care for patients, in the interest of developing systematic standards of practice for coronary CTA based on the best available data or broad expert consensus.

Cobalt seeks time to find new investor Updated

first_imgBy Evie AndreouCyprus-based Cobalt Air will propose to the licensing authority to issue a temporary suspension of its licence to give it some to seek a new investor, director of the board Grigoris Diakos said on Thursday.The company announced on Wednesday night it had cancelled all flights from that point onward due to the indefinite suspension of its operations after failing to secure more funding by its investors Chinese Avic Joy Air.A very emotional Diakos told Radio Proto on Thursday morning that the Chinese company, for its own reasons, had decided it could no longer continue funding Cobalt.“The last few weeks an effort was underway to find a new investor, but because our own priority was safety and to be fully in line with the law, after yesterday, which we had said it would be the last day to reach to the decision, we informed the competent government services […] and we took a decision that was very painful to all,” Diakos said.He added that the company has been in contact with the government since the beginning of the week concerning its problems.Diakos said that they would propose to the licensing authority a temporary suspension of its licence to “give us some time to seek another investor.”During statements to the press at the air carrier’s offices in Larnaca later in the day, Diakos said that the future of the company would depend on the decision of the licensing authority.“If all the licences we have are cancelled then no new investor will show any interest,” he said.He added that there has been some interest by investors, but that the tight timeframe they had to decide made things difficult.If the company could buy some time, he said, they would be able to “give to some, serious investors enough time to assess the financial data and prospects and to decide whether they would like to invest.”In the event a new investor is found, the company would need to prove to the airline licensing authority that it has the necessary funds for its operation. “It is a matter of the authority how long it would take to give us the green light to resume operations.”The state will be covering the cost of repatriation of passengers who were left stranded. Those passengers will have to return home by October 24.Concerning arrangements for passengers scheduled to travel after that date, Diakos said that the Bank of Cyprus had already issued announcements on how its customers who have booked tickets with its cards could claim their money back. He said that the same is applicable with passengers who have booked tickets with cards issued by other banks.On claims there had been accusations of mismanagement of funds, Diakos said Cobalt is a private company and that no tax-payer money was used for its creation.“It was a private initiative. We tried to offer a Cyprus-based air carrier so that there was no dependence on foreign interests,” he said.Diakos said that the company had succeeded to secure all certificates an air carrier is required to obtain within two years, when it takes other companies six to seven years to achieve that, and that it had also won two awards.The company, he said, had informed its staff that there were problems it was trying to resolve.The final announcement on Wednesday had to be made after the last flight for the day had landed to avoid any problems, according to advice by company experts, he said.Fighting tears when talking about the airline’s approximate 280 employees Diakos made a short pause to compose himself. “We feel great responsibility toward our staff, they are enviable people who had experienced the same with (now defunct state-owned) Cyprus Airways,” he said.He added that the company fully respects its staff.The air carrier hired a large number of former staff of Cyprus Airways, which was grounded in 2015 after the European Commission ruled that a state aid package was in violation of competition regulations. The company was ordered to return €65 million, which triggered its shutdown. You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityReassurance for your refugeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Our View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

dogs like Duncan all too often who have not put a paw out of place and would make someone a fantastic pet but because of the current law our hands are tied and they are not given the chance to live. a son and grandson of Navy admirals Generals and admirals will argue privately of course that running the US military today is a lot more complicated than it has been in the past Fighting terrorists is a brain-intensive not brawn-intensive work Cyber and missile-defense slots not to mention overseeing the production of ever-more-complicated weapons require constellations of generals and admirals The emphasis on joint assignments where officers serve in jobs outside their service has fattened the senior ranks Posh others say “I think there has been grade creep” says Anthony Zinni who as a four-star Marine served as chief of US Central Command from 1997 to 2000 That was before the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq which occurred in Centcom’s region “Did we really need four-star commanders in Iraq and Afghanistan” Zinni wonders “The size of their forces did not warrant the number of stars based on historical comparisons” There is a sense that Congress and the Pentagon following the 2001 terror attacks reflexively added stars to show they were serious about battling al Qaeda “But it’s as important to shutter unneeded or redundant headquarters as it is to salami-slice the `staff kudzu’ that has grown up since the 9/11 attacks” says Dave Barno a retired Army lieutenant general (three stars) who commanded all US and allied forces in Afghanistan from 2003 to 2005 “Fewer general officers makes sensebut chopping some of the overlapping and less-than-critical service and joint headquarters with their always-busy staffs is an even better idea” In actuality part of the problem is that there are plenty of generals and admirals doing lots of things other than waging warranging from legal officers to medical officers to public-affairs officersas well as battalions of generals doing jobs that colonels used to do Military scholars agree with the need for cuts if not their depth “When the number of generals is growing while size of force is shrinking that seems to indicate a disconnect” says Peter W Singer of the New America Foundation “A modest reduction may be appropriate but Im not sure one can rely on the simple metric employed by the armed services committee” says Michael O’Hanlon of the Brookings Institution “Pruning may be wise but Im not sold on the case for a 25% cut just yet” Like any bureaucracy those at the top take care of their own even as the ranks below are thinned out There are at least 12 US generals assigned to the war against ISIS inside Iraq according to a recent Daily Beast tallyor one general for every 400 or so US troops there The higher the rank the more money it costs taxpayersand a four-stars $181500 in basic annual pay is the least of it Theyre flanked by aides and the higher the rank the more aides there are and full generals and admiralsthose wearing four starstend to have peacocking fleets of generals and admirals with three two or single stars working for them This made more sense before instantaneously electronic communications but today is serves to slow down and raise the cost of decisions that ideally should be fleet and agile especially in wartime The Senate committee wants to cut the number of four-star billets from the current 41 to 27 a 34% reduction Those surviving the bloodletting would be the seven members of the Joint Chiefs (there were only five not that long ago) and the heads of

Command) the director of the National Security Agency and four-star officers from the Air Force Army and Navy in the Pacificall of whom report to yet another four-star officer The Army recently succeeded in convincing Congress to make that Pacific assignment a four-star billet Part of its argument was that because the Air Force and Navy had four-star officers in their Pacific assignments the Army wasn’t getting the respect it warranted from nations in the Pacificnever mind from inside the Defense Department itself It almost goes without saying that no one suggested that instead of elevating the Army’s Pacific command to four-star rank the Air Force and Navy slots be reduced to three-star positions Write to Mark Thompson at mark_thompson@timemagazinecomLawyers for Porsche are

to convince Congress and the FCC to see things their way They paid not only for traditional lobbying but also for academic studies Astroturf public relations campaigns and opinion articles by hired experts to influence lawmakers regulators and the public according to a Center for Public Integrityinvestigation AT&T and Verizon vastly outspent their smaller rivals The rules the FCC will consider Thursday set aside 30 megahertz that can only be bid on by carriers that dont have a dominant presence in any given market That typically will rule out AT&T and Verizon from bidding on most of the airwaves in the reserve but not all The reserve represents 42 percent of the 70 megahertz of low-band spectrum many analysts expect will become available The auction however depends on television stations agreeing to sell spectrum they hold licenses for and more could be available if a larger number of broadcasters choose to sell Some analysts say the 30 megahertz reserve may not be enough to ensure more competition "Ideally it should be more" William Ho principal analyst at 556 Ventures in Reston Virginia said in an interview The spectrum comes from frequencies currently controlled by television broadcasters which are voluntarily selling their licenses If the buying power of AT&T and Verizon is limited too much Ho said broadcasters may avoid selling their spectrum because they believe they wont get a premium price That would depress the amount of money the FCC collects from the auction Harold Feld a senior vice president at Public Knowledge a consumer advocacy group in Washington that supported a larger reserve said the set aside "isnt aggressive enough" Feld said carriers need to buy spectrum in 20 megahertz chunks in a market to support the amount of traffic traveling on their advanced networks A 30 megahertz reserve will therefore only help T-Mobile or Sprint not both With AT&T and Verizon likely being able to purchase 20 megahertz blocks of non-reserved spectrum the auction may end up benefiting just three carriers The FCC and the Justice Department when it blocked AT&Ts purchase of T-Mobile in 2011 said it takes at least four companies to keep the wireless industry minimally competitive The smaller carriers wont be able to match AT&Ts and Verizons buying power for the remaining spectrum analysts predict "We have had a strong commitment to having four-firm competition which is why we have done things like keeping T-Mobile and Sprint from merging" Feld said in an interview "But these [auction] rules actually support just three-firm competition not four Why" The Justice Department in an FCC filing last month lobbied the FCC to set aside more spectrum for small carriers The FCC should "give considerable weight in determining the amount of spectrum included in the reserve to protecting and promoting competition" wrote William Baer assistant attorney general for the departments Antitrust Division See the Photos Apple Featured

said it is concerned that AT&T and Verizon will buy up spectrum even if it has no intention of using it just to keep it out of the hands of Sprint and T-Mobile and reduce competition FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler defended the reserve last month calling it "a revolutionary decision" that the agency has never before committed to "The important thing is that it exists" Wheeler said "That there exists for the first time a set aside a reserve to make sure that there is the capacity for a quality of competition among wireless carriers Thats the key point" In the end the question of how large a reserve there should be will become moot if the FCC can convince a large number of broadcasters to sell their airwaves especially in the largest markets said Reed Hundt FCC chairman in the Clinton administration He believes more than 70 megahertz will be available As much as 120 megahertz could go up for sale he said which will give T-Mobile and Sprint the opportunity to buy more spectrum With that much spectrum on the market AT&T and Verizon likely will find it hard to buy it all up Hundt said in an interview "There are a number ways the FCC can get to that number" he said "At that point
