first_imgA cut-out of Kim Jong-Un is burnt during a protest in South KoreaNorth Korea has up to 5,000 tonnes of chemical weapons, South Korean experts said Friday, including the toxin used to assassinate its leader’s half-brother.Traces of VX — a nerve agent listed as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations — were detected on swabs from the face and eyes of Kim Jong-Nam, who was poisoned at a Kuala Lumpur airport last week, Malaysian police said Friday.Malaysian detectives are holding three people — women from Indonesia and Vietnam, and a North Korean man — but want to speak to seven others, four of whom are believed to have fled to Pyongyang.South Korea’s defence ministry said in its 2014 Defence White Paper that the North began producing chemical weapons in the 1980s and estimated that it has about 2,500 to 5,000 tonnes in stock.North Korea has chemical weapons production facilities in eight locations including the northeastern port of Chongjin and the northwestern city of Sinuiju, it said in the 2012 edition of the document.”North Korea is believed to have a large stockpile of VX, which can easily be manufactured at low cost,” defence analyst Lee Il-Woo at the private Korea Defence Network told AFP.Developed some 100 years ago, VX can be produced at small laboratories or facilities producing pesticides, he said.”Chemical and biological weapons can be delivered through various means such as artillery, missiles and planes”, he added.If absorbed through the skin, eyes or nose, just a tiny drop of the colourless, odourless nerve agent is enough to fatally damage a victim’s central nervous system.Military science professor Kim Jong-Ha at Hannam University said the North has 16 kinds of nerve agents including VX and sarin, used by a Japanese doomsday cult, Aum Shinrikyo, in the 1995 attack at the Tokyo subway system that killed 12 people.It also possesses other lethal chemicals, including suffocating, blistering and blood agents, Kim said, as well as 13 types of biological weapons such as anthrax and bubonic plague.North Korea has not signed a global chemical weapons convention that prohibits the production, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons.More than 160 countries signed the treaty, that went into force in 1997.last_img read more


first_imgDementiaUS Supreme Court justices, delving into the issue of aging prisoners with dementia, struggled on Tuesday over whether a convicted Alabama murderer should be spared the death penalty because strokes have erased his memory of committing the crime.Vernon Madison, 68, was convicted and sentenced to death for fatally shooting a Mobile police officer in 1985.During an hour of arguments, the justices heard from both Alabama and Madison’s attorney that severe cognitive decline could preclude a state from executing inmates who cannot understand what was happening to them. But it remained unclear whether the justices will decide Madison fits that criteria.The justices, on the second day of their new term, must determine whether executing Madison would violate the US Constitution’s Eighth Amendment prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment. A ruling is due by June.Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer, a death penalty critic, said there are many aging inmates who, like Madison, have spent decades on death row.”So this will become a more common problem,” Breyer said.The Supreme Court has previously imposed limits on capital punishment for mentally incompetent or intellectually disabled people.Madison suffered several strokes in recent years, resulting in brain damage, dementia and memory impairment, according to court papers. He is legally blind, cannot walk unassisted and speaks with a slur.The dispute centers on whether Madison can understand the connection between his crime and the planned punishment. Alabama has said Madison can understand the link. A federal appeals court ruled last year that he cannot.The justices ruled last year that Alabama could execute Madison, but on 25 January they then halted his execution and a month later agreed to hear his case.Madison shot Julius Schulte, a police officer in Mobile, twice in the back of the head as Schulte supervised Madison’s move out of his former girlfriend’s house, according to court papers.Attorneys for Alabama and Madison told the justices memory loss alone cannot exempt someone from execution.Chief Justice John Roberts, a conservative, asked Madison’s attorney Bryan Stevenson whether he conceded that “simply blacking out, you don’t remember the crime” was not enough.”It doesn’t make them incompetent,” Stevenson agreed, but asked the justices to bar execution when “someone has a disability that renders them incapable of orienting to time or place.”Liberal justices including Sonia Sotomayor appeared to agree Madison should be spared, but conservative Justice Samuel Alito noted that experts evaluating the case said Madison understands the meaning of the death sentence and certain other details.”Nothing about Mr. Madison’s conditions impact the state’s interest in seeking retribution for a heinous crime,” Alabama Deputy Attorney General Thomas Govan said.The court, one justice short amid the fight over president Donald Trump’s nominee Brett Kavanaugh, is currently split 4-4 between conservatives and liberals.Madison, who is black, was sentenced to death in 1994 in his third trial. His first two convictions were thrown out on appeal for racial discrimination in jury selection and other prosecutorial misconduct.last_img read more

Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Enroll Now for Free When M.G. Siegler started using Gmail’s task feature to convert his emails into a to-do list, he made a shocking discovery.As many as 50 to 75 percent of the emails he received were actually to-dos from other people.Related: Get it Done: 35 Habits of the Most Productive People (Infographic)Taken individually, each request was reasonable. But, in aggregate, “this is a nightmare,” wrote the general partner at GV, formerly known as Google Ventures. “There’s no way anyone could manage such a system without spending the vast majority of their day doing email.”This, in a nutshell, captures the essence of the email crisis that’s eroding the productivity of companies across the globe. Email has become so entrenched in our business processes that many workers resort to using their inbox as a daily to-do list — a tendency so common that email providers like Google and Microsoft have taken notice, adding task management features to help make it easier. But, treating email as a task manager only encourages employees to spend more time using an inefficient tool that already consumes (and wastes) a disproportionate number of company hours. Consider:Employees spend up to 40 percent of their time reading internal emails.One in five knowledge workers cite email as their biggest time sink.As much as 80 percent of email traffic is “waste.”Unnecessary emails cost businesses an estimated $650 billion a year in productivity.As research increasingly demonstrates how email overload takes too much energy, erodes concentration and elevates stress levels at work, the writing on the wall is clear: companies that want to reclaim lost productivity need to reduce the email load, stat. That means removing everything from the inbox that doesn’t need to be there — starting with the to-do list.Related: How to Manage Time With 10 Tips That WorkWhy email makes a terrible task managerUsing email as a task manager is like using a screwdriver to pound a nail. It can work, sort of, but it’s the wrong tool for the job.Although inextricably linked, communication and task management are two separate things, argues researcher and author Alexandra Samuel. Mashing them together only makes both more cumbersome.”If you’re conflating email and task management, then the job of communicating — reading and replying to your messages — gets bogged down by all the emails you leave sitting in your inbox simply so you won’t forget to address them,” she wrote in Harvard Business Review. “This approach also makes managing your to-do-list problematic: When you need to quickly identify the right task to take on next, nothing slows you down like diving into your inbox to scroll through old messages.”Tracking tasks through email also requires you to keep your email program running all day, opening the door for distractions. Employees already check their email as often as 36 times an hour. After each interruption, it takes an average of 23 minutes to get back to their original task. All of this back-and-forth switching ultimately hampers productivity by up to 40 percent.”Emails, after all, are disruptive,” says New York magazine writer Jennifer Senior. “It takes startup energy to read them; it takes energy to reorient and reboot once we’re returned to the task we’ve left. Over the course of a week, the price can be measured in hours.”Related: 4 Reliable Signs Someone Is About to Waste Your TimeA better way to do to-do listsSeparating email from task management can materially affect staff performance. While email overload depletes the energy of employees, actually completing tasks energizes them — case in point, we all know those people who actually add things to a to-do list just to be able to cross them off! Getting things done makes people happier and more engaged at work, and employees perform better when they’re able to focus on the work they believe matters most.An effective task management tool works in concert with communication tools like email and messengers to help employees waste less time answering emails and spend more time doing meaningful work. And the next generation of productivity tools will need to go a step further — they’ll need to enable employees to manage all of their daily tasks in a single place without having to toggle between email and other tools. In addition, these tools will need to allow workers to complete tasks wherever they are working — on any device, company intranet or messenger. This not only provides them with a simple work experience, but also gives them the freedom to shut out email distractions whenever they need to plow through their to-do list.Effective task management is all about efficiency. Given email’s burgeoning reputation as a massive time sink, it’s obvious that this burdensome communication tool isn’t the best solution. Taking to-do lists out of email and putting them where employees are working on a task helps minimize distractions, reduce the amount of time employees spend in their inboxes, and ultimately, improve productivity.last_img read more
