“Innocent people throughout the world are still threatened by weapons of mass destruction,” Mr. Annan writes in the first chapter of the yearbook, published by the UN Department for Disarmament Affairs. “They face additional threats from major conventional weapons, as well as from the destabilizing accumulation and illicit sale of small arms and light weapons, and the continued production and use of landmines.“Of all these challenges, however, the total elimination of nuclear weapons must remain the top priority,” he says.Focusing on the actions and reactions of the world community to a wide range of disarmament issues, the book surveys developments within the UN, as well as bilateral, plurilateral and regional developments.It includes steps taken by member states and the UN to address the threat of the possible use of weapons of mass destruction by terrorist groups against the backdrop of the 11 September terrorist attacks in 2001 against the United States, and efforts made to strengthen multilateral disarmament legal norms with regard to nuclear, biological and chemical weapons.Other sections include progress made by member states and the UN in implementing the programme of action on the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons to combat the proliferation of such weapons as well as progress made in eradicating and reducing anti-personnel landmines.Now in its 27th edition, the yearbook is designed as a handy reference tool for diplomats, researchers, educators and the interested public.

Cabos San Lucas, Mexico – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineEsperanza, An Auberge Resort, the award-winning Cabo San Lucas resort, is launching a collection of new sea life adventure experiences as part of its Auberge Adventures program. From September 2012 through to March 2013, guests can enjoy the rich variety of sea life native to the Sea of Cortez, as it varies with the seasons. Created exclusively for Esperanza guests, these programs give visitors of all ages an up-close look at the local sea life, along with culinary delights and luxurious transportation, for exciting days of ocean exploration.Guests will have the opportunity to take part in the preservation of endangered species by adopting a baby sea turtle and releasing it into the ocean at El Suspiro Beach at sunset. This three-hour adventure comes with a turtle adoption certificate, roundtrip ground transportation and drinks and appetizers on the beach prepared by the resort’s culinary team (available September to October 2012).For the more adventurous visitors, Esperanza offers guests the rare opportunity to swim with the region’s majestic whale sharks. Spotter planes, boats and expert guides will navigate guests through the waters outside of La Paz to popular feeding grounds where they will swim with whale sharks measuring up to 40 feet and watch these gentle giants feed on plankton. This eight-hour trip includes roundtrip ground transportation to La Paz, an authentic Mexican breakfast, lunch and snacks prepared by Esperanza, wet suit and snorkel equipment, as well as underwater photography and videography upon request (available October 2012 to March 2013).To enjoy a similar experience but from a greater distance, guests will have the opportunity to get up-close to gray whales and their calves in Magdalena Bay Sanctuary and maybe even witness the birth of a baby whale. This eight-hour excursion begins with a flight on a Cessna Grand Caravan plane over the peninsula coastline to view the Bay from above. The trip ends with a guided boat tour and includes roundtrip ground transportation, lunch at a local seafood restaurant and flight bites provided by Esperanza (available December 2012 to March 2013).A portion of Esperanza’s sea life adventure program bookings will be donated to various local organizations dedicated to preserving and protecting the ocean environment of the Baja California Sur coastline.www.esperanzaresort.com
Facebook122Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Washington Governor Jay InsleeGovenor Jay Inslee announced a month-long extension of his “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” emergency order Thursday evening. The order, which banned all gatherings and temporarily shuttered non-essential businesses, will continue through May 4.“Epidemiological modeling from the University of Washington predicts we will have at least 1,400 deaths this year,” Inslee said. “We are yet to see the full toll of this virus in our state and the modeling we’ve seen could be much worse if we don’t continue what we’re doing to slow the spread.”Public gatherings remain banned and non-essential businesses may reopen May 5. If gatherings are held in violation of the order, individuals are encouraged to notify their local police department. Do not call 911.The state Department of Commerce is providing guidance and assistance to businesses on whether they can be considered essential and other resources they may access to help during this time. Residents or workers concerned about non-essential businesses remaining open may file complaints at this link.“We have taken dozens of steps under my emergency powers to help people in this time – including moratoriums on evictions, mortgage forbearance, utility ratepayer assistance, unemployment extensions, flexibility on tax payments and cash assistance to families,” Inslee said. “We will do more.”Part of that effort is the sacrifice of business owners who had to shut down and of their workers who struggle to pay bills, Inslee said, and it is important for us to work toward coming out of this statewide shutdown. For example, the administration is engaging in productive conversations with industries to devise a safe way for them to get back to work when we can lift that part of the order.More information on resources available to Washingtonians impacted financially by the COVID-19 outbreak can be found by clicking here and by visiting coronavirus.wa.gov.In addition to the extension of “Stay Home, Stay Healthy,” the governor signed a directive to the Department of Enterprise Services and the Emergency Management Division to secure personal protective equipment as expeditiously as possible.Also Thursday, Inslee announced a delay in the implementation of new state building codes from July 1 to Nov. 1 to provide adequate time for training and outreach that was interrupted by the COVID-19 outbreak. These codes relate to construction and occupancy of residential and commercial structures throughout the state. Read that proclamation here.
