Afghanistan has two anniversaries ahead. Friday is Independence Day, commemorating the signing of the Treaty of Rawalpindi in 1919, in which Britain granted Afghanistan self-determination over its foreign affairs. However, most will be most concerned about Monday, which marks one year since the Taliban regained control.

This week also begins with the 75th anniversary of the British withdrawal from the Indian subcontinent, marking the partition of India and Pakistan. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is to address the nation from Delhi’s historic Red Fort, with the focus likely on unrest in Kashmir, the country’s only Muslim-majority state.

For UK schoolchildren, it’s all about the present as pupils in England, Wales and Northern Ireland receive the emails and envelopes containing their A-level and vocational exam results on Thursday. The task of accepting and finding university places through the compensation process will then begin in earnest.

As with the Advanced Higher exam results announced for pupils in Scottish schools last week, A-level results are expected to be down from last year, but likely up from pre-pandemic years. The AQA review body said proofs would be graded more generously to reflect the return to normal testing conditions.

The UK’s summer of discontent will be marked by another nationwide railway strike this week, heightened by a general strike across London’s public transport systems. Next Sunday more than 1,900 workers at Britain’s largest container port, Felixstowe, are set to go on strike, and we have another week of strike action by criminal lawyers in the courts of England and the Country of Wales, with no resolution in sight.

We are about to take a big step forward in NASA’s Artemis space program. The mission aims to land the first female and ethnic minority astronaut on the Moon, preparing for a long-term lunar presence and providing a springboard for sending humans to Mars. Nasa plans to livestream the transfer of the Artemis 1 rocket to the launch pad on Wednesday with the aim of completing liftoff by the end of the month.

Economic data

Inflation watchers will be busy this week with updates from the EU, Japan and Canada, and Wednesday’s release of the latest Federal Open Market Committee meeting minutes may give some indication of the Fed’s willingness to tighten monetary policy.

It will also be a busy week for UK economic news with figures on jobs, inflation, productivity, retail sales, consumer confidence and property prices. All are likely to gather comments on the state of UK plc.

Companies

This week we come to the end of the current reporting season with results from a group of retailers who are either purely online or who have benefited greatly from e-commerce, including walmart tuesday, Target and Tencent a day later, and AO World Thursday.

AO World is trying to shift its business model from growing sales to creating and maintaining margins. The problem for these retailers as we enter an economic downturn will be maintaining sufficient sales demand.

Read the full schedule for the week ahead here.

Posted by Sandra MacMartin, Public Affairs Specialist with Guest Author Paul Birkbeck, SNAP Program Specialist, Utah Department of Workforce Services for Food and Nutrition Security

August 01, 2022

My name is Paul Birkbeck and I have worked with SNAP for 26 years and have had the honor of chairing the State Nutrition Action Coalition (SNAC) of Utah for the past eight years. Across the United States, SNACs are an innovative and collaborative strategy to improve community health through partnerships. I am impressed with the passion and dedication of our nutrition partners in Utah.

In 2020, Utah State Senator Luz Escamilla introduced a bill create a food security task force to develop a plan to establish food security in the state. The task force was formed in 2021. In July 2022, our SNAC was renamed “The Food Security Council” and its membership was expanded to include the Department of Agriculture, the Farm Bureau and representatives from the resettlement services refugees, tribal governments and higher education. . Utah’s SNAC already included representatives from SNAP-Ed, the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP), WIC, the Department of Health, Get Healthy Utah, Utahns Against Hunger and the state agency SNAP.

The goal of one of the three working groups of the Food Security Task Force, Policy and Access to Safe Foods, is to identify policy barriers that prevent low-income individuals and families from participating in federal programs. nutrition, and identify opportunities to increase access to fresh and whole foods as part of healthy eating habits. Recent data from the USDA Economic Research Service shows that one in 10 households in Utah experience food insecurity. While Utah overall is near the national average for poverty, the problem is concentrated in rural areas. Additionally, food insecurity disproportionately affects children, female single-parent households, the elderly, Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color.

The other members of the Food Security Task Force and I are excited to take on this challenge and work together to eliminate food insecurity across Beehive State! The creation of our task force was just the first of many steps this broad group of partners will take to implement sustainable policy solutions that will increase access to food for all Utahans.

Sustainability and climate action were demonstrated throughout the Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open this week with a wide range of action evident at Dundonald Links.

The host site, Dundonald Links, was first GEO certified in 2013 and has been successfully renewed three times since then, while it has also been recognized for its sustainability through Golf Tourism Scotland, Ayrshire Business Awards , BIGGA, IAGTO and by the Golf Environment Awards.

Gailes Marsh Nature Reserve, which is managed by the Scottish Wildlife Trust, sits next to the golf course and gives connectivity to the nature reserve, meaning it is less isolated.

And there is regular liaison with Scottish Wildlife Trust, Scottish Golf Environment Group, Scottish Natural Heritage, RSPB, Butterfly Conservation and Bug-life who help manage the course and adjacent protected sites.

One of Dundonald’s main goals is to “get the classroom outdoors” and the golf course is very committed to the community. The species have been well documented by schoolchildren and local naturalists with a small field center set up specifically as an education and study center working with the ‘Curriculum for Excellence’ to help young people learn skills for life.

The little blue butterfly became extinct in Ayrshire in 1982, but was successfully reintroduced to the region and is thriving through careful consideration of its habitat.

The honey is harvested on site with nectar from sources such as heather, gorse and wildflowers to impart its distinctive sweet flavor and is used in the foods produced.

This week’s catering is provided by Hickory, a local supplier specializing in local foods that not only supports local businesses, but also reduces transportation and associated carbon emissions. Additionally, all tea, coffee, sugar, hot chocolate and bananas are Fairtrade products.

In line with new Scottish single-use plastics legislation, no plastic cutlery will be used with all metal cutlery. Glass water bottles are provided to reduce single-use plastic water bottles, there is also canned water and access to a nearby filtered water tap for bottled water rechargeable.

IMG and the R&A are setting up shuttles to transport players to the AIG Women’s Open, so they will reduce the number of air travels, while public transport for spectators and cycling are encouraged via social media.

Significant efforts have been made to reduce resources and waste. Dundonald Links has a zero waste to landfill policy and exceptional water management initiatives.

A comprehensive recycling and waste management program is in place with Enva with zero waste to landfill in tournament operations. Bins and signage on the course encourage spectators to use the appropriate bins to help sort waste streams.

There is a reduction in printed materials by offering draw sheets, tournament schedule and key information via QR code.

Ukraine denies carrying out missile strike on prison camp

The Russian Defense Ministry said on Friday that 40 Ukrainian prisoners of war were killed and 75 injured in a strike on a detention center in the town of Olenivka in Russian-controlled Donetsk.

NBC News was unable to immediately verify the Russian claim.

Ukrainian officials have denied this claim, saying they did not carry out the missile strike. Officials said Russia was trying to cover up the “torture and murder” of Ukrainian prisoners.

Russia has repeatedly denied committing war crimes.

Russian forces launch missile attack on Kyiv region

For the first time in weeks, Russian forces launched a missile attack on the Kyiv region on Thursday as Ukrainian troops focus on the south of the country.

Ukrainian officials said Russia also attacked the northern Chernihiv region, northeast of Kyiv and near the Belarusian border.

Kyiv Regional Governor Oleksiy Kuleba said on Telegram, according to Reuters, that 15 people were injured by missiles hitting military installations in Vyshhorod district on the outskirts of Kyiv.

Wagner Group handed frontline duties by Moscow, UK says

According to the British Ministry of Defence, the famous Russian private military contractor Wagner Group has been given responsibility for specific sectors on the front line in Ukraine.

“This is a significant change from the group’s previous employment since 2015, when it typically undertook missions separate from regular large-scale Russian military activity,” the ministry said in a tweet.

“Wagner’s role has probably changed because the Russian MoD has a severe shortage of combat infantry.”

The Wagner Group has long been involved in conflicts in volatile countries around the world, including Mali, Libya, Syria, Mozambique and the Central African Republic. Human rights groups accuse his mercenaries of carrying out massacres of civilians and other human rights violations. The Kremlin has repeatedly denied any connection to Wagner.

Although its structure and even its existence are disputed, Wagner is believed to have first appeared during Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014. The name has since become a catch-all term for an opaque network and expansive of businesses and entities.

Hacktivist group Anonymous ’embarrasses and demoralizes’ Kremlin, says cybersecurity expert

Major data leaks carried out on behalf of the hacktivist group Anonymous reveal that Russian cybersecurity defenses are weaker than previously thought, according to cybersecurity experts.

Although Russia remains strong in its offensive capabilities, data leaks from the Central Bank of Russia, the space agency Roscosmos, several of Russia’s largest oil and gas companies and other Russian companies, have “disappointed” the cyber community, said Shmuel Gihon, a security official. researcher at threat intelligence firm Cyberint.

“We expected to see more strength from the Russian government,” Gihon said, “at least when it comes to its strategic assets, such as banks and TV stations, and especially government entities.”

Anonymous has claimed responsibility for hacking more than 2,500 Russian and Belarusian sites, said Jeremiah Fowler, co-founder of cybersecurity firm Security Discovery.

Data leaked on line is so vast that it will take years to examine it, he said.

The decentralized hacker collective lifted the lid on Russia’s cybersecurity practices, Fowler said, which is “both embarrassing and demoralizing for the Kremlin.”

The White House declined to provide an update on talks with Russia over a US bid for the immediate release of WNBA star Brittney Griner and former Marine Paul Whelan.

“I really can’t go into more detail just for the confidentiality and security of the process. We share that we have put a substantial offer on the table,” said White House press secretary Karine Jean- Pierre, during a daily press briefing.

Earlier in the day, the Kremlin said that so far “there is no agreement” on a US request to release Griner and Whelan from Russian custody.

The Kremlin said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will respond to a request for a phone call from US Secretary of State Antony Blinken when he has time, according to an Interfax report.

The United Nations World Food Program estimates that up to 47 million more people could face acute food insecurity this year if Russia’s war in Ukraine continues.

Last week, representatives of the UN, Turkey, Russia and Ukraine signed an agreement to reopen three Ukrainian ports, an apparent breakthrough as the Kremlin’s war against its former Soviet neighbor enters its fifth month.

The deal follows a months-long blockade of dozens of Ukrainian ports scattered along the Azov and Black Seas.

Less than 24 hours after the agreement was signed, Russian missiles fell on Odessa, Ukraine’s largest port.

The UN Secretary-General has previously warned that the armed conflict in Ukraine threatens to unleash “an unprecedented wave of hunger and misery, leaving social and economic chaos in its wake”.

After a two-year hiatus for obvious reasons, Montreal’s one-day Japanese festival, Matsuri Japon, is back in August. The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday August 13 and offers a wide range of Japanese activities, workshops and, of course, delicious food and drinks to try.

The festival, run by volunteers, welcomes approximately 18,000 visitors each year to the Japanese-Canadian Cultural Center of Montreal (JCCCM) in the Villeray district. This year promises to bring games and activities for all ages, including workshops on wagashi, a sweet made from rice flour and often filled with bean paste or fruit and served with matcha.

For adults, there will be a sake tasting workshop led by international sake sommelier, Kuniko Fujita, also known as Madame Sake in Quebec. If the drinks make you peckish, you won’t run out of options.

Matsuri Japan will host a wide array of food vendors serving Japanese classics like takoyaki (small fried balls of dough and octopus), yakisoba (stir-fried noodles), okonomiyaki (fried pancake with sauces) and yakitori (skewers of grilled meat) – basically it’s fried and grilled treats galore.

For dessert, get ready for myriad flavors of kakigori, a shaved ice dessert flavored with fruity syrups like cherry, orange and strawberry – or opt for the matcha flavor with adzuki beans on top. above. You can also look forward to sharing non-alcoholic drinks, including refreshing yuzu lemonade and favorite classic soda Ramune.

Performances on the festival’s main stage this year will include local taiko drumming group Arashi Daiko – which means storm drums – who have been performing in Montreal since 1983.

Matsuri Japan 2022 is always looking for volunteers. If you are passionate about Japanese culture and have time to spare, it is worth considering!

To get to the festival by public transit, take the 193 East from Jarry station.
