Nowitzkis Mavericks feiern vierten Sieg in Folge

Dallas (dpa) ? Die Dallas Mavericks haben ihre kleine Siegesserie in der nordamerikanischen Basketball-Liga NBA auf vier Erfolge ausgebaut.

Das Team von Superstar Dirk Nowitzki bestand die Pflichtaufgabe bei den Utah Jazz und kam gegen das Schlusslicht der Western Conference zu einem ungefährdeten 103:81-Heimsieg. Bereits zur Pause hatten sich die Texaner einen 54:43-Vorsprung herausgeworfen.

Nowitzki war mit 20 Zählern neben Monta Ellis (22) bester Werfer der Mavericks, die durch den Erfolg ihren achten Platz festigen konnten und somit gegenwärtig auf Playoff-Kurs sind.

International Conference on Putting Youth to Work in Sub-Saharan Africa (YESSA), from January 28 to 30, 2014

Dakar, Senegal (ots/PRNewswire) – What strategies can we adopt to put youth to work?

Answers from researchers, experts and decision-makers

An international conference on Putting youth to work in sub-Saharan Africa will be held from January 28 to 30, 2014, at the Pullman Hotel in Dakar, Senegal. This event, designed as a forum for reflection, exchange, and experience-sharing, is being organized by Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), in collaboration with the Partnership for Economic Policy (PEP).

The conference organizers consider youth unemployment as one of the major issues faced by African countries. A unique opportunity presented itself in Senegal in 2013 following the government decision to recruit 5,000 new civil servants after the 2012 presidential election. The vast number of applications received – 150,000 – attests to the country’s shortage of jobs for this age group. In fact, youth aged 15 to 35 comprise approximately 37% of the workforce in Africa. Existing statistics show that youth are three times more likely to be unemployed than adults. Youth comprise 83% of the unemployed in Uganda, 68% in Zimbabwe and 56% in Burkina Faso and Senegal.

This is clearly an opportune time to assess the gaps in knowledge of Africa’s labour market dynami

cs, and to conduct a critical study of current practices and strategies for youth employment.

The conference will bring together national and regional public policy actors, multilateral partners, researchers and other African think tank and research centre experts. The event will give speakers the opportunity to compare the scientific research results with programs and initiatives for youth employment in order to define the possibilities and challenges and identify the best potential policy options and strategies and their perspectives. This meeting will also inform the development of a relevant policy-oriented research agenda that takes into account local realities.

Prelude to the special session of the African Union’s Conference of Labour Ministers

The discussions at this conference will feed into the debate that will take place during the special session of the African Union’s Conference of Labour Ministers to be held in Windhoek in April 2014. During this meeting, a new declaration and action plan for promoting jobs for youth in Africa will be adopted. In turn, the Ministers’ meeting will feed into a special summit of the AU Heads of State to mark the 10th anniversary of the Ouagadougou Declaration in September 2014.

World Routes Strategy Summit 2013 Findings Published

Manchester, England (ots/PRNewswire) – Conference White Paper produced outlining the discussions and conclusions of the aviation industry’s top executives

Aaron Heslehurst, News Anchor and Presenter for BBC World Television, who chaired the Summit and Shruti Vijayakumar, Air Transport Specialist at The World Bank have produced a conference white paper reporting the findings of the World Routes Strategy Summit 2013, which took place 6-7 October in Las Vegas, Nevada, alongside the 19th World Route Development Forum.

The Summit, which was held in partnership with ICAO and The World Bank and sponsored by Oman Airports Management Company (OAMC), brought together senior leaders and key stakeholders from aviation, tourism and cargo to participate in discussions that will set the commercial and political agenda for the industry. The event attracted airline and airport CEOs, Ministers of Tourism and leaders of industry associations worldwide.

Dr. Charles E. Schlumberger, Lead Air Transport Specialist at The World Bank Group who moderated the panel discussion entitled A Sustainable Future for Aviation says of the Summit: “The World Routes Strategy Summit is the annual ‘D Check’ or ‘Heavy Maintenance Visit’ of the air transport industry. During two days each year, top airline and airport executives, aviation authorities, and officials of international organisations gather during the World Routes Forum to discuss, dismantle, and analyse every part of our fascinating air transport system. Their insight and conclusions are outlined in a White Paper, which can be seen as health bill of the industry!”

“The World Routes Strategy Summit is the only forum where senior executives from airlines, airports, tourism authorities and governments gather to discuss the issues and thrash out the solutions facing the aviation and tourism industry,” adds Nigel Mayes, Commercial & Relationships Director for Routes, UBM Live continuing: “We had over 1,000 executives play their part in this year’s conference, making it our largest summit ever.”

The report details the conclusions from each of the sessions which took place over the two-day event which covered many aspects of the industry. Points raised include the fact that collaboration across the airline, airport and tourism sectors is key to adapting to a challenging market environment whilst governments also play a key role to success. This was the finding from The Golden Triangle – Airports, Airlines and Tourism session and speakers during this insightful session also raised the need to improve connectivity across the US to promote domestic travel to international visitors.

The Addressing CO2 Emissions session found that the decision which was made at the 38th ICAO assembly to commit the organisation’s 198 member states to develop a global market-based mechanism (MBM) to address international aviation emissions by 2016 was hailed by the EU but viewed by others as a missed opportunity. The session found that the industry remains committed to carbon neutral growth whilst highlighting the need for the industry to remain involved. The State of the Industry session saw panellists emphasising that whilst the industry remains fragile, growing collaboration with stakeholders is a positive sign for the future and that there is a need to open the lines of communication with passengers to improve service, particularly in view of the expected growth in demand for air transport in the rising middle classes and emerging markets.
