On Uncertain Principles, Chad Orzel tells an entertaining story about new measurements of the so-called g-factors of subatomic particles, which relate their angular momentum to magnetic properties. Recent results of such measurements have provided successful verification of some of the fundamental principles of quantum physics.

    Heeding UN call for funds, donors pledge $2.4 billion to assist Syrians in needSecretary-General Ban Ki-moon (left) at the opening of the International Humanitarian Pledging Conference for Syria in Kuwait City. UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe
    15 January 2014 &#150 Donors at a conference in Kuwait today pledged more than $2.4 billion in response to appeals by United sac hollister femme Nations officials for urgent funds to assist millions of people inside Syria and in neighbouring countries affected by the conflict that has raged for nearly three years. These pledges prove that the people devastated by this conflict are not forgotten, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said during the Second International Humanitarian Pledging Conference on Syria. It is also sending a strong signal to the neighbouring countries that we appreciate their generosity, and that they will not be left to shoulder the burden alone. The conflict in Syria, which began in March 2011, has produced unprecedented demands for humanitarian and development agencies, Mr. Ban told the gathering earlier, noting that $6.5 billion is needed this year.An estimated 9.3 million people in Syria, many of them stranded in hard-to-reach and besieged areas, urgently need help, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). Nearly half of them are children, who do not have adequate access to health care or education. More than 3 million people have fled Syria and are taking refuge in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt, causing great hardship and raising tensions throughout the region.In January 2013, the First Pledging Conference for Syria saw 43 Member States pledge $1.5 billion towards humanitarian efforts. Those funds were used to provide life-saving assistance for millions of people in Syria and surrounding countries, including emergency food rations, mobile medical care and vaccinations, clean water and sanitation, and basic shelter. polo abercrombie femme Humanitarian aid is the difference between life and death, hope and despair. It has already assisted millions of people affected by this crisis, said Mr. Ban. I count on you to show the Syrian people that the world is here to help. Hosted by the Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, and chaired by the UN Secretary-General, the conference offers the international community to continue supporting the humanitarian response to help the millions affected by the Syria crisis. It comes ahead of next week s talks in Switzerland aimed at finding a political solution to the civil war that has already claimed well over 100,000 lives amid fighting between the Government and various groups seeking the ouster hollister paris of President Bashar al-Assad. This is the biggest humanitarian crisis we face today, UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Valerie Amos told the conference. We all hope that the political talks due to begin next week will deliver a positive result. In the meantime, every child, every woman, every man affected by this crisis deserves our continued support.Ms. Amos, who vente priv脙漏e abercrombie belgique recently carried out her seventh visit to Syria in nearly two years, said that the very fabric of the society has unravelled, and sectarianism has taken hold. There are persistent reports of people running out of food in besieged communities, solde chez abercrombie public health is in crisis and nearly one-fifth of Syria s schools are either damaged or being used as shelters.Despite the constraints, humanitarian operations are making a difference to millions of people s lives every day, she noted, adding that agencies were able to increase response activities across hollister barcelona jobs the country throughout the past year. We know that we must do all we can to continue to scale up our activities this year if we are to keep pace with the growing needs, stated Ms. Amos.Ant nio Guterres, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, noted in his remarks that within a few years, Syria has gone from being the world s second largest refugee-hosting country to becoming its fastest refugee-producing country. It breaks my heart to see the people of Syria, who for decades generously welcomed refugees from other countries in the region, soldes hollister now forced into exile themselves, said Mr. Guterres. The agency which he heads (UNHCR) has registered over 2.3 million Syrians as refugees in the region, and governments estimate the total number of those who fled at over 3 million, including many who have not asked for assistance. Countries in vente vetement hollister the region Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt have received an unrelenting stream of fleeing Syrians and have provided them protection, at enormous cost to themselves, Mr. Guterres said. Few refugee influxes have ever generated this profound an impact on their host countries, with such dramatic demographic, economic and social consequences. The pressure is felt heavily in all areas of daily life, as budget deficits are increasing, growth suffers and jobs, salaries and price levels are affected across the region, leaving local families struggling to make ends meet. He stressed that the generosity of Syria s neighbours needs to be matched by massive international support, and that countries in the region need not only strong financial assistance, but also need others to help carry the burden of actually taking in and protecting refugees. My appeal to all countries including those beyond the region is therefore to keep their borders open for those who are forced to flee and seek protection elsewhere, he stated, adding that there is something fundamentally wrong in a world where asylum-seekers drown at sea or are pushed back from land borders.While in Kuwait, Mr. Ban met separately with several leaders, including Prime Minister Najib Mikati of Lebanon doudoune hollister femme prix and United States Secretary of State John Kerry, as well as officials from Kuwait, Jordan and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
