At development conference in Japan Ban urges integration of Africa into the

Speaking at the fifth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD V), Mr. Ban urged better integration of Africa into the global economy to diversity the continent’s economies and make them more resilient, during a panel chaired by World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, on ‘private sector, trade and investment as engines of development’. “Responsible foreign investment holds more potential for Africa than any other source of development capital, including official development assistance,” Mr. Ban said. Africa’s share in global foreign direct investment flows is around 3.5 per cent, he noted, while most of the continent’s trade and investment are focus on a limited number of commodities exported to a limited number of destinations. “It is important to complete the Doha Trade Round and ensure that African companies have access to major markets,” urged Mr. Ban noting the ongoing negotiations under the umbrella of the UN-supported World Trade Organization (WTO), and the critical need to address non-tariff barriers. He also urged opportunities for trade beyond traditional markets, particularly among emerging economies, and a greater focus on intra-African trade among the African Union members. “We also need to address the crippling lack of infrastructure. Energy, transportation and communications systems are essential to functioning business,” Mr. Ban said, highlighting the importance of investors and entrepreneurs in realizing the continent’s “green growth.” Mr. Ban said his Sustainable Energy for All initiative, which aims to achieve universal energy access, improve energy efficiency and increase the use of renewable energy, “can help spur progress.” He also urged companies to observe the Principles for Responsible Agricultural Investment developed by the UN and the World Bank, and called on investors to support the growth of small-scale local business but to also respect human rights and property rights. Earlier in the day, Mr. Ban participated in a thematic session at TICAD V on the development of a post-2015 development agenda to succeed the eight anti-poverty targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

UN Photo/Rick Bajornas ‹› With fewer than 1,000 days to reach the MDGs by their target date in December 2015, Mr. Ban urged the Government of Japan and other partners to increase support for the development goals. “TICAD V should galvanize action to help the world live up to our pledge to end poverty, educate children, empower women and provide health services for all,” Mr. Ban told the participants who included heads of State and Government. After nearly a year of work, Mr. Ban received a report this week by the High-Level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, outlining a new development framework to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030 and deliver on the promise of sustainable development. In the report, the 27-member Panel called for the new post-2015 goals to drive five major transformational shifts: move from “reducing” to ending extreme poverty, leaving no one behind; putting sustainable development at the core of the development agenda; transforming economies to drive inclusive growth; building accountable institutions, open to all, that will ensure good governance and peaceful societies; and forging a new global partnership based on cooperation, equity and human rights. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, in attendance at TICAD V, co-chaired that panel, along with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia and Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom. She has been selected to also chair the Committee of Heads of State and Government on the Post-2015 Development Agenda. To ensure that the report reflects the concerns of people across the world, the panel took into account national consultations held in more than 90 countries, including three dozen in Africa, Mr. Ban said. In addition, a quarter million of Africans also shared their ideas online through the global survey My World. Also at the Tokyo Conference, the head of the UN Development Programme (UNDP) today moderated a panel to identify priority actions for closing gender equality gaps in Africa and ensuring that gender equality is central to the post-2015 development agenda. The panel focused on best practices in addressing such challenges as maternal health, food security, sexual violence and barriers to women’s economic, legal and political empowerment, as well as to their participation in peace building. It also noted the importance of women in agriculture where they are estimated to account for nearly 50 percent of the agricultural labor force in sub-Saharan Africa. “One of the most important steps countries can take to drive progress is to ensure and improve the political, economic and social rights and opportunities of women,” UNDP Administrator Helen Clark said. “Africa has achieved notable economic growth in recent years. To be sustained, that growth must be inclusive, and translate into concrete improvements in the lives of women, men and children,” Miss Clark added. Meanwhile, at an event on malaria, Mr. Ban called for additional funding for the Roll Back Malaria Partnership and the UN-backed Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. In April, the Global Fund announced a target of raising $15 billion for the 2014-2016 period. The current funding shortfall is starting to slow the scale-up of key malaria interventions in Africa, particularly the distribution of long-lasting insecticide treated mosquito nets. “Now we are at a critical moment. Financial gaps threaten the progress. This is the time to make the most of our investments,” he urged. Malaria mortality has declined from over one million annually to half of that number in under a decade, due to the delivery of over 400 million Long Lasting Insecticidal Nets (LLINs), expansion of indoor-spraying and hundreds of millions of courses of treatment and diagnostic testing. In the first quarter of this year, 37 million nets were delivered to sub-Saharan Africa, according to the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Financing the Health MDGs and for Malaria, Ray Chambers. Participants at TICAD V also discussed peace and stability in Africa. In his remarks, Mr. Ban noted that there are fewer conflicts in Africa than in the past, “but new threats are emerging” including the rise of transnational crime, piracy, terrorism and radicalization. “Peace and development are mutually reinforcing,” Mr. Ban said, noting that he returned last week from the Great Lakes region where he, envoy Mary Robinson, and the President of the World Bank, Jim Yong Kim, went to support the Peace, Security and Cooperation framework for the Democractic Republic of the Congo and the region. He noted that “nowhere is the nexus between government, security and development more clear than in the Sahel.” The Sahel region – which stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea – suffers from extreme poverty with more than one million children in acute malnutrition. The region’s human development levels are among the lowest in the world. It also has porous borders that present security challenges, as well as significant human rights problems. “We are doing everything possible to save lives now and to address future needs,” Mr. Ban said. “The goal is to build resilience – a key theme of this conference.” In northern Mali, Mr. Ban noted that fighting has affected five million people and forced more than 400,000 to flee their homes. Northern Mali was occupied by radical Islamists after fighting broke out in January 2012 between Government forces and Tuareg rebels. The conflict prompted the Malian Government to request assistance from France to stop the military advance of extremist groups. Last month the Security Council approved a 12,600-strong UN peacekeeping operation to take over from the African-led mission in Mali on 1 July. The UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) is tasked with supporting the political process in the country, in close coordination with the African Union and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). The Mission will help the Malian authorities to implement the transitional roadmap towards the full restoration of constitutional order, democratic governance and national unity. This includes the holding of elections in July, confidence-building and facilitation of reconciliation at the national and local levels. In the Central African Republic, Mr. Ban said he was “deeply concerned about violence and human rights abuses.” He has called on the Security Council and the international community to help restore security and protect civilians, and stressed the importance of regional approaches to stop the spread of insecurity. Fighting flared up in CAR in December 2012 when the Séléka rebel coalition launched a series of attacks. The fighters took control of major towns and were advancing on the capital, Bangui – home to 1.5 million out of the country’s population of 4.5 million, before agreeing to start peace talks under the auspices of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS). A peace agreement was reached on 11 January in Libreville, Gabon, resulting in a ceasefire agreement and creating a Government of national unity in which opposition figures were given key posts, but the rebels again seized Bangui in March forcing President François Bozizé to flee. The conference in Tokyo is taking place as the UN is ready to deploy its latest UN assistance mission in Somalia (UNSOM) on 3 June. “Progress in Somalia shows what African partners and the international community can accomplish together,” Mr. Ban said. “I hope partners will continue supporting Somalia as it works to consolidate progress and build a federal state.” On the sidelines of the conference, Mr. Ban met today with Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud. They discussed latest political and security developments in the country, as well as the forthcoming deployment of UNSOM. Also today, Mr. Ban met with Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan, to express his appreciation for Japan’s active role in the UN, as well as for hosting the conference and for the country’s multifaceted contributions to the promotion of development in Africa. Mr. Ban stressed the need for the country’s strong leadership regarding the Organization’s reform, as well as on human security, the MDGs and the post-2015 development agenda. The two leaders also discussed the situation in Syria and the Korean Peninsula, among other issues. The UN chief also met today with President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete of Tanzania to discuss the human rights situation regarding albinos in the country, often attacked for superstitious beliefs. The two leaders also exchanged views on the situation in Madagascar and climate change. Mr. Ban and Salva Kiir Mayardit, President of the Republic of South Sudan, met to discuss implementation of the 27 September 2012 agreements signed with Sudan and the negotiations on the outstanding issues between the two countries.Mr. Ban also stressed the increasing concern of the international community with regard to the deteriorating humanitarian situation in South Sudan, and called on the Government of South Sudan to do more to protect civilians in Jonglei State, in particular, the site of recent intense attacks. With Prime Minister of Mauritius, Navinchandra Ramgoolam, Mr. Ban discussed the post-2015 development agenda, as well as the challenges faced by Small Island Developing States (SIDS), including Mauritius, that are posed by climate change. Also, Mr. Ban commended Mauritius for its contribution to international efforts to combat piracy. The latest developments in Madagascar were also on their agenda. In addition, Mr. Ban met today with Lieutenant General Seretse Khama Ian Khama, President of the Republic of Botswana to discussed the importance of cooperation between the UN and the Southern African Development Community (SADC). Mr. Ban welcomed Botswana’s continued leadership on climate change, voicing hope that an agreement on climate change will be reached by 2015. He also commended Botswana’s initiatives to achieve the MDGs and to address resource scarcity and food insecurity.

Head of UNESCO condemns third murder of Filipino journalist in recent days

“I condemn the murder of Mario Sy,” said the Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Irina Bokova.Mr. Sy, a freelance photo contributor to Sapol News Bulletin newspaper, was shot on 1 August by an unidentified man who entered his house in the province of South Cotabato.The killing comes two days after the double murder of Bonifacio Loreto and Richard Kho, columnists for a weekly tabloid newspaper, Aksyon Ngayon.“It is very alarming to see three journalists killed in the space of two days and I urge the authorities to do all in their power to bring the culprits of these crimes to justice,” Ms. Bokova said. According to media and police reports, on 30 July, Mr. Loreto and Mr. Kho were shot several times by two assailants on motorcycles as they talked in front of a convenience store in the Quezon City neighbourhood of the capital, Manila.The journalists are remembered on the dedicated UNESCO webpage, ‘UNESCO Condemns Killing of Journalists.’ read more

UN chief outlines reforms that put Member States in drivers seat on

Mr. Guterres underscored that to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – an action plan including 17 goals to ensure that all people live in peace, security and dignity on a healthy planet – adopted by UN Member States in 2015, strategic choices needed to be taken between an evolutionary approach and a more ambitious pathway. “We chose the path of ambition,” he told a meeting of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC ), adding: “In a rapidly changing world, we cannot afford to have a slowly reforming UN development system […] we must act.” The UN chief stressed that reforms are necessary because “business as usual” approaches simply will not provide countries with the support they need to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or meet the Paris Agreement commitments on climate change.He laid out seven keystone reform proposals for better coordination, transparency and accountability, beginning with a new generation of demand-driven UN country teams, equipped with skillsets tailored to country-specific development priorities and needs. The second proposal was a reinvigorated Resident Coordinator system, “with stronger capacity, leadership, accountability and impartiality.” Thirdly he proposed “a coordinated, reprofiled and restructured regional approach to better support work on the ground.” The fourth reform would be for renewed spaces for Member States to guide system-wide actions, bringing greater transparency and accountability at the country level. “I would also like to see a strengthened ECOSOC, empowered to hold the system accountable and challenge us to do more, together,” he added.A stronger UN institutional response and approach to partnerships for the 2030 Agenda was the fifth proposal, and the sixth was concrete steps to accelerate the UN system’s alignment to that blueprint. “A Funding Compact to bring better quality, quantity and predictability of resources, increased accountability and transparency and enhanced capacities of the system to deliver on the 2030 Agenda,” was his final proposal. The Secretary-General said the request included increasing the share of core resources for individual agencies system-wide, from 21.7 per cent to 30 per cent, and doubling the share of contributions to pooled funds from eight per cent to 16 per cent of non-core. Member States in the driver’s seatA common theme running through the proposals is a “rock-solid commitment” to reinforce national leadership and ownership for sustainable development. “Member States will be in the driver’s seat and the 2030 Agenda will be the driving force,” he stated. He emphasized that the Organization’s development coordination function is “vastly underfunded,” saying that resident coordinators often lack basic staffing capacities to credibly lead UN development activities – preventing Member States’ resolutions to eradicate poverty from becoming a reality. According to the Secretary-General, funding the core capacities of the Resident Coordinator system through assessed contributions “would be a logical step as the Organization repositions sustainable development at the heart of its work.” He held sway that about one per cent of annual contributions allocated to operational development activities would bring value for money by yielding a more robust coordination function, significantly improving effectiveness and strengthening leadership and system accountability. Calling effectiveness, efficiency, results for people and value for money “our shared goals,” Mr. Guterres said delivering was “our shared responsibility.” “At the same time,” he stressed “we will continue to take all possible measures, within existing mandates, to lay the groundwork for precisely what you seek: a repositioned system, reinvigorated by a more impartial and accountable coordination system for sustainable development.” read more

Not the comfy chair Parishioners given Spanish Inquisition by church court over

first_img“The pews are in a terrible state, they have to be moved which is difficult and they are falling apart.“We have got two [wooden] chairs in the church at the moment on loan which the congregation are testnig to see which they prefer.“We are getting mixed reviews on both of them, I think they’ve all got their heart set on these padded chairs and now we can’t have them.”She explained that the two church wardens had been left to manage the complicated application process as the parish currently has no vicar after the previous incumbent retired more than a year ago.“We have been doing this [process] now for two years, it has been a bit of a nightmare,” she said.“Apparently they’re not going to allow any church now to have padded seats, at least that’s what they’ve said to us.“Certainly within the diocese that’s what we have been led to believe – no more padded chairs.”An official in the diocese said that while there was no blanket ban, the use of upholstered chairs in historic churches would be discouraged. lambeth An overly casual appearance can be incompatible with a house of GodChancellor Stephen Eyre QC The judge, the Chancellor of the diocese, Stephen Eyre QC, agreed with a plan to replace them with stackable chairs, ruling that the pews were of “little merit” historically.But he ordered that any replacement must not be upholstered after heritage groups including the Victorian Society and Historic England objected, arguing that the planned cushioned seating was “unworthy” for the historic building. Parishioners in the 12th Century Holy Trinity Church in the village of Long Itchington, Warwickshire, applied for a special permission – or faculty – to replace their woodworm-infested Victorian pews in order to open up the building for children’s groups and other uses. Holy Trinity Church, Long ItchingtonCredit:Colin Underhill/Alamy “An emphasis on quality and seemliness is not only appropriate in buildings dedicated to the Glory of God but is also part of what attracts those new to the Church.“When considering comfort I must give considerable weight to the expert advice that properly designed unupholstered chairs can be as comfortable as those which are upholstered.”But Maureen Mitchell, the church warden, said: “Many of the congregation are elderly and they are entitled to comfort now and again.”She explained that the church, which does not have a separate hall, is regularly used for community events, fundraising and special informal children’s services all of which require hauling the heavy pews out of the way.“When you go to the other churches in this area they have all got them … but the Victorian Society have put their oar in and said no,” she said.“This is going to knock us right back, where at the moment we are a growing church. Many of the congregation are elderly and they are entitled to comfort now and againMaureen Mitchell, church warden Similar chairs in use in Lambeth Palace Leading parishioners in the church had planned to buy a new set chairs similar to those used in neighbouring parishes and even in Lambeth Palace.They chose wooden chairs with a burgundy coloured built-in cushion, explaining that it would help make the building “warm and welcoming”.But after receiving objections, Mr Eyre ruled that wooden seats should be comfortable enough, adding that padding could look “shabby”.And he claimed that, far from being welcoming to visitors, soft chairs might even put people off.“I accept that the interior appearance of a church should if at all possible not be off-putting to those new to it,” he said.“However, it is to be remembered that an overly casual appearance can be incompatible with a house of God and can be as unattractive to newcomers as an appearance of excessive rigour.

When the Spanish Inquisition, as reimagined by Monty Python’s Flying Circus, wanted to torture their victims into confessing to heresy there was only one thing for it: to fetch the comfy chair.Now the use of comfortable seating has become a test of orthodoxy in real life after an ecclesiastical court banned the use of padded chairs in a church on the grounds that they were verging on the ungodly.In a formal judgment, the Consistory Court of the Diocese of Coventry, ruled that the use of upholstery in a historic place of worship could be “overly casual” and “incompatible with a house of God”. churchlast_img read more

Changing attitudes to animal testing

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Gone are the days that testing on animals was the fashion industry norm. Countless brands are making the conscious effort to cut ties with companies testing products on animals or using inhumane methods to collect fur. In China – Australia’s biggest supplier of fur – animals are skinned alive, and are bred specifically for their hides. Rabbits are used to test cosmetics regularly. With their eyes almost identical to ours, they become the guinea pigs to test chemicals that will later be used in creating your $10 stick of eyeliner. Now, as part of a special fashion event next Wednesday, Greek Australian marketing business director of Nektaria Creative, Nektaria Georgys, is tackling the issue head first, and raising awareness for ethical and cruelty free brands. It’s her personal love of animals and her connections with the fashion industry that have spurred her on, hoping to make a real difference in the industry and in homes around Australia. “I was told by a number of people that an event to raise awareness for animal cruelty with the fashion industry was not possible, it was absolutely ridiculous,” she tells Neos Kosmos. After being knocked back by a couple of companies telling her the two just don’t mix, she came across some companies who are making the effort to make their products more ethical, while still having to remain competitive in the industry. Product savvy customers have have also helped to spur these companies on, when they’ve seen how their customers have been reacting to the products very favourably, and even getting new clientele out of the move. “The purchasers are now declining,” Ms Georgys says about trading with companies still using inhumane methods. “Over the last 12 months it has gone down by 21 per cent, which is good, the same can be said for puppy farms, which has dropped by 17 per cent.” The sold out event, Protect our Animals, aims to raise awareness for the two issues, and hopefully raise much needed funds for the charities Oscars Law and Choose Cruelty Free. A $28,000 Marchesa couture gown worn by Kim Kardashian will be auctioned off, as will a brand new Mercedes Benz and beautiful jewellery. In Australia, many of the puppies in pet stores have come from puppy farms. These farms keep dogs in squalid conditions, forced to breed continuously until they are left infertile. In most cases these dogs are killed to make room for more. Their offspring are what fill the pet stores around the country. With the Christmas season fast approaching, Ms Georgys fears many unsuspecting families will be buying many of these puppies without knowing their true origin. “When you’re purchasing a puppy this Christmas, instead of going to a puppy shop, you should go to a pound or a reputable breeder,” she says. Ms Georgys knows awareness is the key to fighting this cruelty and hopes to make her event an annual thing. She hopes she can include more brands that heed the call to introduce cruelty free products.

Le Qatar annonce un accord sur le climat à la conférence de

first_imgLe Qatar annonce un accord sur le climat à la conférence de DohaLe Qatar a enfin annoncé, avec un jour de retard, qu’un accord a été trouvé lors de la conférence de l’ONU sur le climat à Doha. Loin de faire l’unanimité, cette signature semble pourtant presque miraculeuse tant les négociations patinaient la veille. Le Qatar a brusquement fait accélérer les choses, ce qui a fortement déplu à la délégation russe.Alors que la situation semblait au point mort à Doha, Qatar, la présidence de la conférence de l’ONU sur le réchauffement climatique a annoncé samedi 8 décembre qu’un accord avait été finalement obtenu. Vu comme l’acte II du protocole de Kyoto, le texte s’intéresse tout particulièrement à l’intégration des pays en développement dans une politique environnementale mondiale. Ces derniers ne représentent que 15% des émissions de gaz à effet de serre mais subissent en première ligne les conséquences de cette pollution.À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?La Russie a par contre dénoncé un passage en force. Cité par l’AFP, le délégué russe s’est exclamé “c’est la première fois que je vois un tel précédent!”. Avec un jour de retard sur le calendrier et une nuit de négociations longue et difficile qui laissait entrevoir un échec cuisant de la conférence, les qataris ont brutalement accéléré la cadence par l’intermédiaire du vice-premier ministre Abdallah al-Attiya.Des milliards d’aides et des îles en jeuLes pays du sud réclamaient 60 milliards de dollars sur trois ans pour pouvoir maintenir le cap entre une aide de 30 milliards de 2010 à 2012 et une de 100 milliards jusqu’en 2020. Les États-Unis ont pris la tête des États bailleurs qui refusaient de s’engager et de devoir signer un accord trop contraignant. Les pays émergents souhaitent également la remise en question du système de quotas de gaz à effet de serre, mis en place par le protocole de Kyoto. Si certains pays ont promis de ne plus s’en servir, la mesure n’a pas été supprimée.D’autres pays en difficulté, dont de nombreux archipels du Pacifique et de l’Océan Indien, sont tout simplement menacés de disparition par la montée du niveau de la mer et ils ne comptaient pas se laisser faire lors des négociations. Kieren Keke, le ministre des Affaires étrangères de Nauru, une petite république de Micronésie, a déploré au nom de l’Alliance des petits États insulaires un accord qui n’est “pas à la hauteur sur les questions de l’aide financière”.Le 8 décembre 2012 à 18:42 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Pogba says he has learnt a lot from Abou Diaby

first_imgPaul Pogba recently admitted he has a lot to do to even be able to compare himself with the greats in the midfield and gave props to a former Arsenal man for his skills.Paul Pogba has identified Abou Diaby as a man who has influenced his playing style and may be the main reason for what Pogba has become.Diaby has played 16 times for the France international team while at Arsenal. His only problem is that throughout his career he has encountered a lot of setbacks, most of which injuries.Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…“Who is stronger than me in central midfield? [Andres] Iniesta, [Luka] Modric, [Toni] Kroos, [Kevin] De Bruyne, [David] Silva – even Abou Diaby,” Pogba replied when asked who he considers as his matchup in the midfield, according to FourFourTwo.“He was exceptional at Arsenal. People forget about him but I learned a lot from him.”Diaby spent the last season without a club as he had only five Ligue 1 appearances for the two years spent in Marseille.last_img read more

Microsoft Sony Nintendo,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

Epic Games The big three video game console manufacturers have taken the first step in making loot boxes more transparent for gamers. Soon, players will see exactly what the odds are to get certain digital items before they hit the buy button. Michael Warnecke, the Entertainment Software Association’s chief counsel of tech policy, said Wednesday that Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo committed to new policies requiring video games to disclose the probability of receiving a certain item in the loot box. The announcement came during a US Federal Trade Commission workshop called “Inside the Game: Unlocking the Consumer Issues Surrounding Loot Boxes.”The FTC defines loot boxes as “in-game rewards that contain random assortment of virtual items to assist a player in advancing in the online game or to customize his or her game avatar.” They’re a common feature in popular, free-to-play online games such as Fortnite and Apex Legends.Microsoft said in a separate statement that it will require odds disclosures starting next year. “We believe in transparency with customers and providing them information for making their purchase decisions. This is why by 2020 all-new apps or games offering loot boxes or other mechanisms on Microsoft platforms that provide randomized virtual items for purchase must disclose to customers, prior to purchase, the odds of receiving each item,” a Microsoft spokesperson said in an email Wednesday. The ESA says Nintendo and Sony will also look to add this policy in 2020.  The practice of selling loot boxes received major attention in the US with the release of Star Wars Battlefront II in 2017. This past May, Sen. Josh Hawley, a Republican from Missouri, introduced legislation to ban loot boxes. His bill has since received bipartisan support. Nintendo and Sony didn’t immediately reply to requests for additional comment.  See at Amazon Comments See It The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.
