Telstra pushes LTE to “be more 5G like”

The operator deployed gigabit LTE in some of Australia’s larger cities, but Eriksson noted the service only runs on mobile Wi-Fi (Mi-Fi) devices as smartphones don’t yet support the technology.The operator conducted 5G tests in September 2016, and Eriksson said it plans additional tests in 2018 as the specifications become more mature.View the full interview here.

Colombian Peace Groups Nominated for Nobel Prize

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreTwo Colombian groups were nominated in February for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for their extraordinary commitment to nonviolence in the midst of the country’s 50-year-old conflict and for their example of organized efforts by many Colombians to end that conflict justly and without violence…The Peace Community of San José de Apartadó and the Association of Indigenous Townships of Northern Cauca (ACIN) have responded both nonviolently and creatively to avoid becoming enmeshed in the conflict while protecting their communities and their land.San José de Apartadó declared itself a peace community in 1997. The 1,300 rural villagers pledged not to engage in war, either directly or indirectly, and to look for peaceful and negotiated solutions to the conflict. This declaration caused the armed groups to see them as aiding the “enemy” and brought on numerous attacks and killings despite the flying of white flags. These attacks forced many living in San José de Apartadó to seek refuge in a nearby village to avoid further attacks and persecution.In 2005, the Inter-American Court for Human Rights ruled that the Colombian government was obligated to “safeguard the right to life, personal integrity, security, freedom of movement, dignity, and respect of each individual domicile” of the residents of San José de Apartadó.The second group nominated was the Association of Indigenous Townships of Northern Cauca (ACIN), a grassroots organization of the Nasa people, whose members describe themselves as “communities in peaceful resistance.”Founded in 1994, ACIN strengthens the ability of indigenous townships, with their combined population of 250,000, to negotiate with both the Colombian state, armed groups and the economic interests of landholders. ACIN also supports the communities in creating nonviolent mechanisms of self-protection such as developing security procedures, strengthening community organization, promoting sustainable agriculture projects, and developing national and international ties to other groups. ACIN has received Colombia’s National Peace Prize on two occasions and the United Nations’ Equator Prize for outstanding development projects.Northern Cauca is rich in minerals and provides one-third of the water resources needed to irrigate Colombia’s sugar crop. These abundant resources, combined with their strategic location, have made the region a prime site for commercial interests that have attempted to drive people from the land to make way for development projects.Through the work of ACIN, Nasa communities can respond collectively to disputes or to threats of violence from the country’s various armed factions and resist external pressure to side with any of Colombia’s armed actors. Over the course of the conflict many leaders have been assassinated and threatened. In 2005, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights ruled that nine of ACIN’s leaders be granted protective measures and that the government investigate threats against them.The Friends (Quakers) Nominated the Two Peace GroupsThe Nobel nomination was submitted by The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), a Quaker humanitarian service organization. Like the Quakers, traditional Nasa teachings reflect abstaining from violence.ACIN’s resistance to war is rooted in traditional Nasa teachings, which say all actions affect the balance on which life and well-being depend. Therefore all activities must protect life and strengthen the culture. This commitment includes protecting the land and its resources, asserting the communities’ rights in order to defend their autonomy, while avoiding all violence.The Indigenous Guard is an example of how ACIN has responded to the conflict. The Guard is an organized, unarmed group of 7,000 men and women who volunteer to protect Nasa communities. Carrying with them only a staff to symbolize their office, members of the Guard reject the intrusion of armed factions into indigenous territories and refuse any form of support from armed groups. The Guard has also been a recipient of Colombia’s National Peace Prize.“We’ve had to confront the guerrilla, the paramilitary, the army, and the police — and we’ve been successful. Before, an armed group would come into our community, and because we had no protection, the people would flee. They would become displaced. The armed groups would say, ‘If you don’t leave, we’ll kill you,’” said one founding member of the Guard.In 1947, the American Friends Service Committee, along with their British counterpart, received the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of Quakers worldwide for humanitarian service during and after two world wars. AFSC has its national headquarters in Philadelphia and offices in 22 countries.The AFSC includes people of various faiths who are committed to social justice, peace and humanitarian service. Its work is based on the belief in the worth of every person and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

‘Railway Cup’ finally looks dead and buried

first_img“I know for a number of years in recent times, Connacht were very grudgingly involving themselves in the Railway Cup. It appears to me that the Connacht Council didn’t really have any great love for it, particularly in recent years,” the new Louth manager said. The future of the GAA’s interprovincial series is up in the air after Connacht confirmed they didn’t expect to take part in the competition again. The GAA announced in August that the series would not proceed this December. Last year’s winning Interprovincial football manager Peter McGrath (pictured above 3rd from the left at the launch of last years event) feels the Connacht decision not to participate will kill off the series once known as ‘The Railway Cup’. Connacht secretary John Prenty said today: “We feel it has run its course and we decided at the beginning of the year that we wouldn’t compete this year. I don’t think we’ll take part again but what the other three provinces will do again I don’t know.”In their 1950 and ’60s heyday the competitions attracted large crowds, but interest has dwindled since the club finals took over their previous St Patrick’s Day date in the calendar and they have regularly been shunted around the fixture diary or even cancelled. Last year’s football final saw 150 people attend the Ulster v Connacht football final in Carrick on Shannon. It remains to be seen whether the GAA will attempt to proceed with a three-team format next year or simply scrap the concept.In the 90 year history of the competitions, Connacht won 11 Interprovincial hurling titles and 10 football titles. Their last hurling win was in 2004 and their last football success came in Tuam Stadium in 2014 after a gap of 45 years.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more
