Kaesong Talks Culminate on a High Note

first_img Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak Kaesong Talks Culminate on a High Note News Facebook Twitter News North and South Korea arrived at an agreement earlier this evening to reopen the Kaesong Industrial Complex. The move follows a four-month shutdown that had threatened to end the last remaining major symbol of inter-Korean cooperation.The decision was reached at 7PM following two rounds of talks between the two full delegations and a further three rounds between the respective chief delegates. The “Agreement on the Normalization of the Kaesong Complex” that was subsequently adopted comprises five clauses, including a guarantee that the current shutdown will not be repeated “under any circumstances.”Professor Kim Yeon Soo of Sogang University spoke to Daily NK shortly after the release of the news. While it is pleasing to see agreement, he warned that the time for vigilance is not over, pointing out, “There have been few instances of agreements being made and actually implemented, and there have been cases of differing interpretation of those agreements that were made, so we will have to wait and see for a little longer.” RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR SHAREcenter_img News There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest News AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article?

Nuclear Power Plants Don't Uniformly Account For Decommissioning Costs, Study Finds

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: June 5, 2001 Two decades after questions about safety and the disposal of radioactive waste effectively halted the development of nuclear power in the United States, the nuclear industry is once again being considered as a viable source of energy. But investors planning to climb on the nuclear bandwagon should be aware of the significant cleanup costs that these plants will incur in the future, according to a new study published in the Journal of Accounting and Economics. Accounting professors John Jacob and Naomi Soderstrom at the University of Colorado at Boulder’s College of Business and Julia D’Souza of Cornell University found that a lack of accounting standardization in the field makes it difficult for investors to compare companies’ financial health. Current regulations allow power companies which own and operate nuclear plants to account for future decommissioning costs in a variety of ways. Decommissioning costs include such things as decontaminating a plant’s structures, equipment and land, and disposing of any remaining radioactive waste. These costs can range in the hundreds of millions of dollars, Jacob said. An electric utility’s decision to build and operate a nuclear power plant results in a significant discount of the utility’s stock price based on the costs the plant will incur when the plant is shut down, the study found. But utilities’ financial statements don’t always track those decommissioning costs in a way that allows investors to compare companies, Jacob said. “The Financial Accounting Standards Board wants these companies to recognize the future costs of decommissioning nuclear plants in their financial statements in a consistent fashion,” he said. The study was based on an analysis of annual reports and the stock prices of investor-owned utilities, and explored how utilities account for the costs of decommissioning nuclear power plants. Jacob said the findings have implications for investors and the nuclear industry in light of the Bush administration’s proposed energy policy unveiled on May 17. The plan recommends the construction of more than 1,300 new power plants and a national nuclear waste repository, licensing new nuclear reactors and speeding the re-licensing of existing nuclear plants. Currently, 103 nuclear reactors operate in 31 states, Jacob said. Nuclear energy accounts for 20 percent of all U.S. electricity generation and more than 40 percent of power generation in 10 states.last_img read more

Troubled Area Benefit From Community Policing

first_imgStory HighlightsResidents of Tredegar Park and Gravel Heights have attributed an apparent reduction in criminal activity in that area to intense community policing efforts.JIS visited the police post that serves the once volatile communities to see, first-hand, how programme works.After four years of consistent community policing, the dedicated police men and women have established and maintained a fruitful and cooperative relationship with the residents.

The post was established in 2010, following a series of gang related murders in the communities. RelatedNew Accommodation for Soldiers Residents of Tredegar Park and Gravel Heights have attributed an apparent reduction in criminal activity in that area to intense community policing efforts introduced by the Community Safety and Security Branch (CSSB) of the St. Catherine North Police Division.JIS visited the police post that serves the once volatile communities to see, first-hand, how programme works.At that time, Deputy Superintendent of Police and Territorial Officer in charge of Community Safety and Security, Herold Newton was just receiving a report from the last constable on duty, Constable Neco Walters, about the events of the previous shift.Constable Walters reported: “Commenced duty at 8:00 a.m. and nothing unusual has been reported or observed.”DSP Newton has been receiving similar reports since 2010, when a police base was established on the border of both communities, following a series of heinous gang related murders in the area.“People started moving out right through the week. This place was like a ghost town; but the police changed all of that,” one resident told JIS News after recounting the spate of murders that claimed the lives of several women and children.“Since criminals heard that the police are based in the communities, they no longer come around; they seem to have disappeared…everybody is living peacefully now. People walk at nights. We sleep very well, even with our doors open,” the resident explained.Another resident was happy to share that since the police post has been in place, there is only one house in the community that remains unoccupied, and this is due to a severely damaged roof.After four years of consistent community policing, the dedicated police men and women have established and maintained a fruitful and cooperative relationship with the residents.“You cannot transfer some of the officers you have here…we even want to give them houses in our community. My house is opened even at three in the morning, because I have tight security, twenty-four seven,” another resident tells DSP Newton laughingly.Constable Richard Brown, who has been working in the community since 2010, reiterates that there has been “no murder, reported or observed”.However, the strong community-police relationship did not happen overnight.  The officers of the North Police Division toiled tirelessly to break down cultural barriers, and even had to bull-doze hilly terrain to construct roadways to facilitate access to the Gravel Heights community.“There were no roads and that is what gave the hoodlums an advantage in this community, as they could monitor the activities of the entire area. Since we constructed roadways and have a post, persons have moved back into the community and others are building their homes,” DSP Newton highlighted.He points out that the CSSB works in both communities, to stabilise, re-socialise and reorganise the residents in several different ways, as well as to assist them to live comfortably and feel safe in their environment.“Hoodlums have moved out of the area and we are now in the community to educate the residents about how they can continue to keep them out. Boys from different sides of the fence have been playing football together, the Police Youth Club is very vibrant and a neighbourhood watch is our next project for the community,” DSP Newton shares.Having fought crime and successfully restored peace in the communities of Tredegar Park and Gravel Heights, the St. Catherine North Police Division was recently recognised by the Central Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.The Government of Jamaica (GOJ), through the Ministry of National Security, has intensified their community policing efforts islandwide through the Community Safety and Security Branch (CSSB) of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF).
