Norway commits more than $163 million to UNICEF education

first_imgNorway commits more than $163 million to UNICEF education UNICEF Niger/2020/Araia TamayoKhadjetou and Aicha receive treatment in a UNICEF-supported in-patient facility for severely wasted children with medical complications in Maradi.NEW YORK/OSLO, 1 December 2020 – The Government of Norway has committed USD 163.3 million in flexible funding to help UNICEF reach children with quality education, protection, health and nutrition interventions, focusing specifically on the world’s most marginalized, including children with disabilities.With COVID-19 threatening budgets worldwide, thematic funds from Norway will play a crucial role to respond, recover and reimagine education, health, nutrition and social protection services and strengthen resilience to future shocks.“We thank Norway for its commitment to helping us build a fairer post-COVID world for children,” said Henrietta Fore, UNICEF Executive Director. “The most marginalized children are paying the heaviest price of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the financial fallout of the pandemic leads to job losses and budget cuts, support from our partners like Norway is critical to help us meet children’s pressing needs.”Under these funding agreements – signed by Norway and UNICEF last month -more than USD 126.2 million will be allocated to education programmes in 2020-2021. The funds will help ensure that children with the greatest risk of losing their education – including those living in poverty, marginalized girls, children with disabilities, and refugees – are able to access quality learning.An additional USD 13.2 million will be committed to UNICEF health and nutrition programmes to help protect children and their families from exposure to COVID-19. The funds will also ensure the continuation of life-saving health and nutrition services and the strengthening of primary health care.A further USD 12.9 million will go toward education and health programmes for children affected by humanitarian crises in countries including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mali, Niger and Somalia.Norway and UNICEF are also embarking on a new USD 11 million partnership to support children with disabilities. This investment aims to make sure communities are fully inclusive and that children and adolescents with disabilities can gain access to essential services.“Investing in a child’s education is investing in a nation. With the current pandemic too many children and their families are falling through the cracks and need basic support such as food and health assistance. Yet, the focus on providing immediate support should not go at the expense of a longer-term vision. For many children across the globe, the pandemic’s consequences will continue to hit hard long after we have stopped worrying about infection rates. It is the most marginalized children that bear the brunt of the school closures and increase in poverty. Ensuring access to education is a much needed life-line,” said Dag-Inge Ulstein, Norway’s Minister of International Development Aid.Norway is one of the top contributors to UNICEF’s work, committing USD 188 million to programmes worldwide in 2019. Norway is also one of the top contributors to UNICEF’s flexible funding which allows UNICEF to implement programmes for children in places where the need is greatest. /Public Release.

first_img Aston Martin wants to double its production of cars by 2025, reports Reuters, increasing its yearly production from the current 6,400 per year to 14,000.Aston Martin has made a considerable amount of money thanks to rich buyers, who CEO Andy Palmer says “want more personalization.”The British brand has become very profitable despite its falling into dire straits multiple times. ‹ Previous Next › It boasted a pre-tax profit of 87 million pounds ($147 million) for 2017, its first pre-tax profit since 2010.Despite taking losses on a handful of one-off models like the Valkyrie, it plans to be even more profitable for 2018. The DBX, Aston’s first SUV, will also be quite profitable for the company, especially in places like China where most luxury brands do very well with SUVs.The one-off vehicles Aston will build add considerable value to the brand, but even so, the company says when it comes to growth, “excluding one-off costs, last 12 months, it all looks very healthy.”Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) were 207 million pounds ($351 million) for 2017, and if Aston is on track to do better than that, we’re very excited for it.

‘Scotland door is still open for Russell’

first_img  63  10 Post by SA Rugby magazine Finn Russell ‘ BuzzSuperDetails About Meghan Markle’s Wedding Will Leave You SpeechlessBuzzSuper|SponsoredSponsoredUndo ‘ Scotland coach Gregor Townsend says flyhalf Finn Russell can return if he adheres to the new standards of behaviour in the squad.Russell has not been involved in Scotland’s first two Six Nations games against Ireland and England, after what was alleged as a drinking session two weeks before the loss to Ireland.The 27-year-old left the team hotel that Sunday evening and didn’t show up for training the next day. On returning to the camp on the Monday evening he was informed by Townsend he wouldn’t be considered for that match, and was told the same again the day after the loss in Ireland.In an interview with UK newspaper the Sunday Times, Russell explained that the flashpoint in the hotel bar which has been widely speculated on over the last 21 days, and categorised by many as a ‘late-night drinking session’, is not the crux of the issue. He hinted that a rift that had developed between himself and Townsend and said he would not return to Test rugby unless changes were made to the Scotland set-up.ALSO READ: Russell breaks silence on Scotland futureIn a response to Russell’s comments, Townsend reaffirmed in a statement that the two have a good relationship and that Russell could return if he decides to follow the new squad standards.‘We strive to create an environment for players to be at their absolute best when playing for Scotland,’ Townsend said. ‘To do that players must be aligned to the high standards of being involved in team sport at an elite level.‘These standards are set out through feedback from players and staff and are driven by the player leadership group or the head coach at varying times during a campaign.‘We have players who come from around a dozen different clubs and it’s really important they commit to an agreed standard of behaviour, which builds trust and is at the bedrock of a high-performance environment.‘These standards don’t change for one player, even if that’s not what they experience in their club setting.‘Our team leaders made the decision there would be no drinking after our opening match of the Six Nations and they have been working closely with me on improving other aspects of our environment.‘I’ve loved working with Finn over the past seven years. In that time, I’ve coached him at Glasgow Warriors and with Scotland. He was one of my first signings in the academy at Glasgow. I had watched him train and play the previous season and thought there was a player of real potential. He’s been brilliant to coach at club and international level. He’s very coachable and I’ve worked with him in a very similar way throughout those seven years.‘Finn left camp on the Sunday night because of a disagreement over alcohol with fellow players and chose to miss the following day’s [Monday] training and meetings. I arranged to meet with him that evening. It was a really positive meeting where we talked openly about life, rugby and what it means to play for Scotland.‘I left that meeting, after almost three hours, really optimistic that Finn would play a major part in our environment and be a committed team member. Unfortunately, things have not unfolded as well as we would have hoped.‘In the Six Nations and this season we are playing teams in the top five or six in the world and the effort, planning and standards that go into preparing people physically and mentally are really important, as are the bonds that bring people together and the trust that must be created within the group.‘The door will be open to any player with the required level of ability – if they commit to being a trusted member of the team. It’s been made clear that Finn could be a part of that future. However, he stated at the weekend that everything else has to change for him to come back, rather than accept and adhere to the standards currently being lived by the group.’The Six Nations takes a break this weekend.

Gotham Organization sued for unpaid rent at Park Ave South office

first_imgShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink TagsCommercial Real EstateReal Estate Lawsuits Share via Shortlinkcenter_img Gotham Organization COO Phil Lavoie and 432 Park Avenue South (Google Maps)Developer Gotham Organization is facing a lawsuit over nearly $187,000 in outstanding rent at its 432 Park Avenue South office.An entity tied to Samco Properties — 432 Park South Realty Co LLC — claimed that Gotham has not paid the rent for its office since April, according to a lawsuit filed in New York State Supreme Court on Wednesday. Gotham signed the lease for the property in 2015, and had been paying $41,000 per month in rent. Crain’s first reported the suit.In a statement to Crain’s, Gotham’s COO, Phil Lavoie, said that the developer was advised to withhold rent “after several attempts to compel Samco to address numerous deficiencies and incidents at our office.”“Gotham is currently in a dispute with its office landlord and has been advised by counsel to withhold rent until the landlord fulfills all of its obligations under the lease,” Lavoie said in the statement.Samco did not provide a comment to Crain’s. In the suit, it’s asking that Gotham pay back the $187,000 in back rent, any interest accrued since April and legal fees.In addition to the building at 432 Park Avenue South, Samco’s holdings in Manhattan include office properties at 333 Seventh Ave and 30 Irving place.Gotham has both residential and commercial properties throughout the city, including the Hunter’s Point South complex in Long Island City and the Gotham West Market in Hell’s Kitchen.[Crain’s] — Raji Pandyalast_img read more

Vacation home travel ban not on Cuomo’s agenda

first_imgGovernor Andrew Cuomo (Credit: Eduardo Munoz Alvarez/Getty Images; Sue via Flickr)Requests by the Hamptons, North Fork and upstate to stop the virus-inspired migration from New York City have not resonated with Gov. Andrew Cuomo.The popular summer destinations say they have been overrun by city residents fleeing the five boroughs, which have been the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S.But Cuomo said at a Thursday morning press conference, “I don’t have any travel ban on my agenda.”Read moreThe 1% are sheling out $400K on Hamptons rentals as NYC shuts downBrokers predict pent-up demand after coronavirusCongress agrees on $2 trillion stimulus packageCovid-19 impact: Deals fall through and agents struggle to sell In a message to constituents Wednesday, Scott Russell, the supervisor of Southold Town on the North Fork, said the virus had put a “tremendous strain on our resources” even before people began flocking there from the city.“I am joining Southampton Supervisor Jay Schneiderman in requesting that Governor Cuomo put a travel ban to the east end in place, limiting travel to only essential personnel,” he wrote. “Our resources are scarce, the risk of spread is too high for a town which is already seeing more than its share of confirmed cases and deaths. Southold should NOT be treated as someone’s personal isolation unit.”His message was far more diplomatic than recent ones from some locals in the Catskills and Hamptons and on the Jersey Shore. Facebook pages and other online sites have been filling up with expletive-laden missives about how city dwellers are bringing the coronavirus to their communities — not to mention clearing the shelves of local supermarkets.Initially, the vast majority of the state’s coronavirus cases were in the five boroughs, although the percentage has been dropping and now stands at just over half. The numbers reflect only New Yorkers who have been tested, however, and initially the vast majority of testing was being done in the city.In lieu of a travel ban, Russell requested anyone relocating to his neck of Suffolk County self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival, then continue to practice social distancing and not stockpile food.“We have a limited number of stores who are trying to keep their shelves stocked and ration out supplies as best they can,” he wrote. “Local residents are finding it difficult to meet even their most basic needs. Unnecessary hoarding and the recent, sudden expansion of the population by those who come are making this far worse.”The White House also requested New Yorkers self-quarantine upon arrival anywhere else, and Florida’s governor has mandated it. But the virus has already spread to all 50 states. This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Nowlast_img read more

Rent debt could reach $70B by year’s end: Moody’s

first_imgAn estimated 12.8 million Americans would owe an average of $5,400 from missed payments (iStock)Thousands of renters could be evicted from their homes in the next few months, leading to a housing crisis that could have major ripple effects on the economy.A recent study by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, which surveyed unemployed Americans, found that outstanding rent debt would climb to $7.2 billion before the end of 2020, the Wall Street Journal reported.Meanwhile, Moody’s Analytics projects that the rent debt could reach close to $70 billion by end of the year unless there is additional stimulus funding. At that time, an estimated 12.8 million Americans would owe an average of $5,400 from missed payments, according to Moody’s.Many tenants have been unable to make their rent payments since March, as businesses closed and unemployment rose, according to the Journal. These renters have been allowed to stay in their homes thanks to federal and local eviction moratoriums, but these moratoriums are set to expire by January or sooner, leaving millions of Americans to either meet their back payments or face eviction.Once the moratoriums expire about 30 million to 40 million people across the country face eviction, according to the Journal, citing estimates from federal government officials.In the meantime, many renters are piling up credit card debt. Credit payments to small and medium-size businesses tied to rental real estate rose by more than 70 percent in the spring, according to the Philadelphia Federal Reserve.[WSJ] — Keith Larsen This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Nowlast_img read more
