International community must act with resolve to tackle Africa's challenges – Ban

The Importance of Systems in giant opens tech Achieving Goals Saudi petrochem centre in Bangalore Setting and achieving goals can be very overwhelming if systems aren't put in place. A system can take many different forms. It can be a simple postit reminder or it can be a routine that you follow on a regular basis. According to Joe Dowie Once you start setting goals, it's tough not to want to set them in all areas of your life – school, work, exercise, your dreams, hobbies, the way you want to act, etc. If systems aren't put in place, it's very hard to keep everything organized and consistent. To achieve a goal, consistency is very important. We have all set out to do something, only to get off track. We'll remember a couple weeks later and try starting it up again, but it never works that way. A year later you think about what could have been. Adding a goal is usually a change in your life, and change takes time to work into your schedule. Starting out small is a great way to incorporate change – it's not too demanding of your time, but you're able to start building a foundation. For example, a lot of people have a goal to exercise more. Starting out with a 10-minute workout is a great place to start. It's not that difficult to squeeze 10 minutes into your busy schedule – finding a system to make it stick is the key. Maybe you walk during lunch, work out in the morning before you start your day or at the end of your day to get rid of all the stress, whatever works for you. Finding those systems that work for you, and not worrying about what other people are doing, will help you be very successful in achieving your goals. As you develop more and more goals and systems, it's important to keep these things organized. Starting your day with a checklist of goals is a great system to keep track of all your goals and systems. Some people have a big chalkboard, others put it on their refrigerator, and some even write it on their hand. It sounds funny, but finding your way is important. Don't look to do something just because it works for someone else. Find your path and be creative!

International Preschool brand Alma Kids opens franchise business opportunities

Addressing the challenges facing Africa requires the international community to act with resolve, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stressed today, adding that the recent upsurge of violence in the Central African Republic (CAR) is yet another reminder of the need for urgency in taking action. Speaking at the Elysée Summit for Peace and Security in Africa, hosted by the French Government in Paris, Mr. Ban noted that considerable progress has been made in recent years on the continent. “In many African countries, the economy is boosted, democracy has developed, civil society mobilized and stability and peace gained ground. Africans have turned a new page in their history.” However, while recognizing the achievements and advances, “we must also act with resolve on Africa's challenges,” he stated, adding that transnational organized crime, piracy, drugtrafficking and terrorism are taking a growing toll, exploiting weaknesses in institutions, borders and the rule of law. The persistence of regional conflicts is another cause of great concern, said Mr. Ban. “Mali has made important electoral progress, but the threat of extremism is very much alive and there is an urgent need for an inclusive dialogue that addresses the root causes of the conflict.”

Ties with India different from Need more American investment into India, says Sibal that with China, says Japan

NEW DELHI: Japan said its ties with India were warm and friendly and unencumbered by any "pending issues to resolve", unlike with China, and New Delhi has now replaced Beijing as the largest recipient of Tokyo's Official Development Assistance (ODA). Sakutaro Tanino, press secretary to visiting Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko, made clear that Japan's relations with China and with India were "totally different" and should not be viewed together. Tanino said India-Japan ties are marked by "mutual warm sentiments for each other" and there are "no big pending issues to resolve, unlike with China ... and with no territorial disputes or problems". Japan and China are locked in a territorial dispute over a group of islands in the East China Sea. Japan had increased its ODA to China following the 1992 visit by the

Emperor and Empress to Beijing. Aid has, however, declined following their conflict over the islands, which are believed to be rich in hydrocarbons and other minerals. Tanino also said that the visit of the imperial couple to India had been thought of four years ago, but the decision was "postponed". "Some idea (for the visit) was entertained four years ago, but was postponed," he said. "India is now the biggest recipient of Japanese ODA... Earlier, China was No.1, now India is No.1," said the official, adding that Delhi Metro rail was a symbol of the development aid. The assistance in the form of grants-in-aid and soft loans was for development projects in India, including the Mumbai-Delhi Freight Corridor and the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor. The ODA would also benefit Japanese businesses, he added. "The relationship with China is strained and difficult due to territorial problem," he said, adding that Japan had its "doors open" for dialogue to resolve the issue. "The relationship with China and with India are two totally different issues... should not be seen to be linked," said Tanino. The imperial visit "should not be interpreted as a measure to counter our relationship with China", he clarified.

NEW DELHI: Communications Minister Kapil Sibal Monday called for greater investments from US-based companies in India to create jobs and buying capacity for the local population. "You need to invest in agriculture, medical (sector), electronics and education. Unless you help Indian economy, you won't be able to increase buying capacity of Indian consumers," Sibal said at the the ninth Indo-US Resurgence Summit held here. "The (US investors) are interested in selling their aircraft, defence equipments, but that is not the way to converge in this partnership." According to Indian government estimates, the Indo-US trade in merchandise goods for the calendar year 2012 stood at $62.85 billion with balance of trade surplus of $18.18 billion in favour of India.On the other hand, civilian and military orders placed by India with American companies have created thousands of jobs in the US. Notwithstanding the growing trade ties, the US under its strategic partnership wants to co-develop new systems for civilian and military purposes with India. The minister, who was speaking at the event organised by the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce (IACC), also attacked the US government policy of restricting visas to Indian information technology (IT) professionals. "You are a country that talks about liberalisation of global economy and yet you are increasing cost of our IT sector by trying to impose restriction on our people trying to go to US. I don't think this is the right attitude for partners," Sibal said. Sibal added that the trade between the two countries can rapidly expand, and pointed at the enormous opportunity for the companies of two sides to collaborate in areas like manufacture of consumer durables as there is exponential demand in India.

India's Mars mission enters second stage; outpaces space rival China India's first mission to Mars left Earth's orbit early on Sunday, clearing a critical hurdle in its journey to the red planet and overtaking the efforts in space of rival Asian giant China. The success of the spacecraft, scheduled to orbit Mars by next September, would carry India into a small club, which includes the United States, Europe and Russia, whose probes have orbited or landed on Mars. India's venture, called Mangalyaan, faces more hurdles on its journey to Mars. Fewer than half of missions to the planet are successful. "While Mangalyaan takes 1.2 billion dreams to Mars, we wish you sweet dreams!" India's space agency said in a tweet soon after the event, referring to the citizens of the world's second-most populous country. China, a keen competitor in the space race, has considered the possibility of putting a man on the moon sometime after 2020 and aims to land its first probe on the moon on Monday. It will deploy a buggy called the "Jade Rabbit" to explore the lunar surface in a mission that will also test its deep space communication technologies. China's Mars probe rode piggyback on a Russian spacecraft that failed to leave Earth's orbit in November 2011. The spacecraft crumbled in the atmosphere and its fragments fell into the Pacific Ocean. India's mission showcases the country's cheap technology, encouraging hopes it could capture more of the $304-billion global space market, which includes launching satellites for other countries, analysts say. "Given its cost-effective technology, India is attractive," said Rajeswari Pillai Rajagopalan, an expert on space security at the Observer Research Foundation think-tank in Delhi. India's low-cost Mars mission has a price tag of 4.5 billion rupees, just over onetenth of the cost of NASA's latest mission there, which launched on November 18. "BIG ACHIEVEMENT" Homegrown companies - including India's largest infrastructure group Larsen & Toubro , one of its biggest conglomerates, Godrej & Boyce, stateowned aircraft maker Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd and Walchand Nagar Industries - made more than two-thirds of the parts for both the probe and the rocket that launched it on November 5. India's probe completed six orbits around Earth before Sunday's "slingshot," which set it on a path around the sun to carry it toward Mars. The slingshot requires precise calculations to eliminate the risk of missing the new orbit. "Getting to Mars is a big achievement," said Mayank Vahia, a professor in the astronomy and astrophysics department of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Mumbai.

Gold rush in space? Asteroid miners ICT Excellence Awards-2013 in China's IT sector to gross prepare, but $2.04 trillion in 2013 Rodrigues (Mauritius) eye water first BEIJING: The

Mining in space is moving from science fiction to commercial reality but metals magnates on this planet need not fear a mountain of extraterrestrial supply - the aim is to fuel human voyages deeper into the galaxy. Within three years, two firms plan prospecting missions to passing asteroids. When even a modest space rock might meet demand for metals like platinum or gold for centuries, it is little wonder storytellers have long fantasised that to harness cosmic riches could make, and break, fortunes on Earth. But with no way to bring much ore or metal down from the heavens, new ventures that have backing from some serious - and seriously rich - business figures, as well as interest from NASA, will focus on using space minerals in interplanetary "gas stations" or to build, support and fuel colonies on Mars. There may be gold up there, but the draw for now is water for investors willing to get the new industry off the ground.Governments believe it has a future; NASA has a project that may put astronauts on an asteroid in under a decade and on Mars in the 2030s. And if the costs seem high, grumblers are told that one day the new skills might just save mankind from sharing the fate of the dinosaurs - if we can learn how to stop a massive asteroid smashing into Earth. "We are dreamers," declares the web site of Deep Space Industries (DSI), next to an image of a wheel-like metal station hooked up to a giant floating rock. But what the U.S.-based startup firm calls the first small steps in a "long play" to develop the resources of space are about to happen. A priority is using hydrogen and oxygen, the components of water locked in compounds on asteroids, to refuel rockets. Early in 2016, the first of DSI's exploration satellites, smaller than toasters, will hitch-hike into space on rockets carrying other payloads and start scouting for suitable rocks. The same year, another U.S.-based venture, Planetary Resources, expects to launch prospecting craft hunting viable asteroids."They are the lowhanging fruit of the solar system," said Eric Anderson, an American aerospace engineer and co-founder of Planetary Resources, which lists Google's Larry Page and Virgin billionaire Richard Branson among its backers. "They are just there and they are not difficult to get to and they are not difficult to get away from," he told Reuters.

PORT LOUIS: The Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (MICT) is organizing the third edition of the ICT Excellence Awards to reward the outstanding provisioning and/or use of ICT, from both Government and the Private Sector operating in Mauritius and Rodrigues.

This is informed by Shri Anil Audit of International Informatics Mauritius Limited (IIML).
