KESERWAN, Lebanon, Jul 10 (IPS) - They were promised the world but ended up in a Lebanese household. This is the story of many domestic workers in Lebanon. With a 70-year-old sponsor system still in place, domestic workers are tied to their employers with little or no basic rights. The ‘Kafala' system is the major problem behind what we have been seeing in Beirut in the last months. →

Every morning soon after dawn, 10-year-old Moses leaves home carrying trays of hard-boiled eggs and walks for half an hour to sell them outside a gas station in Gulu, Uganda. With schools closed indefinitely since the nation in March went into a strict lockdown to fight COVID-19, Moses is among about 15 million Ugandan children at risk of being forced to work as families are pushed toward extreme poverty, charities say. After seven hours hawking his eggs, which sell for 500 Ugandan shillings (US$0.13) apiece, and doing his best to avoid police enforcing the lockdown, Moses picked up his trays and headed.

Nikola Vucevic had to raise his voice a bit to answer a question on Thursday. He had just walked off the court after the first Orlando Magic practice of the restart and some of his teammates remained on the floor engaged in a loud and enthusiastic shooting contest. After four months, basketball was truly back. Full-scale practices inside the NBA bubble at the Disney complex started with the Magic — the first to get into the campus earlier this week — becoming the first team formally back on the floor. By the close of business on Thursday, all 22 teams participating in.

Сотни миллиардов долларов заемных средств не помогли «Проммашкомплекту» Сергея Павлингера избавить Казахстан от импортозависимости. Страна имела все шансы стать одним из основных поставщиков железнодорожных колес на евро-азиатском рынке, но из-за коррупции и непрофессионализма прежнему будет закупать их за рубежом.

Scientists in Singapore are hoping to perfect a new method of power generation driven largely by shadows, with the hope that it could one day help highly urbanized cities power themselves. The shadow-effect energy generator (SEG) being developed by the National University of Singapore has the potential to harness power like solar cells, but without needing open spaces with uninterrupted light. To work effectively, the SEG requires both light and dark and, like solar panels, relies on light to shine on silicon to energize electrons. However, using panels that feature a thin layer of either gold, silver, platinum or tungsten, the difference in.

The MLB has its answer to penalty kicks, overtimes and shootouts, and it figures to stir just as much debate as all those other tiebreakers as it is to start each extra inning in its abbreviated, 60-game season by putting a runner on second base. The rule has been used since 2018 in the minor leagues, where it created more action and settled games sooner. "It’s like ‘arena baseball,’" said Scott Thorman, who managed the Kansas City Royals’ Single-A Carolina League affiliate in Wilmington, Delaware, last season. Those words might cause traditionalists to shudder. "I haven’t met anyone so far that likes it," Washington.

Seoul mayor Park Won-soon, viewed as a potential candidate for the 2022 presidential election, was found dead of an apparent suicide hours after he was reported missing, police said, adding that he was the subject of an undisclosed investigation. In a note he is thought to have left behind on his desk, Park offered his apologies. "I thank everyone who was with me in my life.

Some of the Chinese government’s policies in the past few years seem to make little practical sense, with its decision to impose national security legislation on Hong Kong being a prime example. The legislation’s rushed enactment by the Chinese National People’s Congress Standing Committee on June 30 effectively ends the “one country, two systems” model that has prevailed since 1997, when the territory was returned from British to Chinese rule, and tensions between China and the West have increased sharply. Hong Kong’s future as an international financial center is now in grave peril, while resistance by residents determined to defend their.

Taiwan’s Aborigines used to be called “mountain people.” That was a long time ago, when everyone thought of them as people who lived in the mountains. Why do many Aboriginal people live there? Everyone knows that they used to live on the plains, and they only moved to the mountains because they were forced to. Real estate in Taipei has grown incredibly expensive. Historically, the land belonged to Aboriginal people. Now they have nothing left of it. “Justice” is a popular term these days, but if Taiwanese really want to talk about “justice,” they should of course compensate Aboriginal people for the.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC, 台積電) yesterday posted monthly revenue that suggested second-quarter sales surpassed analysts’ estimates, underscoring how its technological lead is helping the chipmaker weather the COVID-19 pandemic and US sanctions on its second-biggest customer Huawei Technologies Co (華為). Apple Inc’s main iPhone chipmaker posted sales of NT$120.88 billion (US$4.08 billion) for last month, up 40.8 percent year-on-year and bringing its revenue for the second quarter to NT$310.7 billion, beating the NT$308.8 billion analysts expected on average. TSMC, a barometer for the industry thanks to its heft in the global supply chain, had previously lowered its revenue outlook for this.

Taiwan might be China’s next target after it has "walled off" Hong Kong from the rest of the world with its new national security legislation, Academia Sinica Institute of Sociology fellow Wu Jieh-min (吳介民) said on Thursday. At a seminar organized by the Economic Democracy Union, the Taiwan Association for Human Rights, the Hong Kong Outlanders and the Judicial Reform Foundation, Wu said that the legislation is simultaneously a fig leaf concealing Beijing’s autocratic rule in Hong Kong and a figurative "Berlin Wall," denying democratic countries access to Hong Kong. Wu said it is evident that Taiwan would be China’s next target. The.
