Philippine typhoon death toll surpasses 5,200
Philippine typhoon death toll surpasses 5,200Updated on : 22-11-2013 08:22 PM
The number of people confirmed killed when a super typhoon devastated the Philippines surpassed 5,200 on Friday, the government said, making it one of the country's deadliest natural disasters.

The official death toll from the storm jumped by nearly 1,200 to 5,209, with another 1,611 people still missing, the spokesman for the government's disaster management council, Reynaldo Balido, said. 

Super Typhoon Haiyan flattened dozens of towns across the central Philippines on November 8, bringing some of the strongest winds ever recorded and generating tsunami-like storm surges.

Balido said the death toll rose sharply today, increasing from 4,015, after officials reported body counts from communities outside the worst-hit areas.

"If you notice, there was not much movement in the death toll for the past few days. This was because the reporting rules required a casualty report signed by the city mayor and his health officer," he said.

"Now, the reports are coming in from the entire typhoon area." 

The Philippines endures a seemingly never-ending pattern of deadly typhoons, earthquakes, volcano eruptions and other natural disasters.

It is located along a typhoon belt and the so-called Ring of Fire, a vast Pacific Ocean region where many of Earth's earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur. 

But Haiyan now stands as one of the deadliest natural disasters ever recorded in the country, and the worst typhoon.

The only other natural disaster to rival Haiyan was a tsunami triggered by a magnitude 7.9 earthquake in 1976 that killed between 5,000 and 8,000 people on the southern island of Mindanao.

More than four million people were displaced, mainly on the poor, farming islands of Samar and Leyte. 

The disaster has triggered a giant, international relief effort, with dozens of countries and relief organisations rushing to deliver food, water and health services to isolated communities. 

The US military has performed the highest-profile role, while Japan has sent more than 1,000 troops in its biggest deployment since World War II. 

China, which is embroiled in a long-running territorial dispute, has also sent a 300-bed hospital ship and relief supplies. 

UN climate change conference has entered its final day,

 UN climate change conference has entered its final day, with delegates still sharply divided over a planned new framework to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The COP 19 climate change conference in Warsaw, Poland, is scheduled to end on Friday. Talks on the last day will focus on the details of a new global framework that's due to be adopted in 2015 and take effect in 2020.

During discussions, officials studied a plan to require all countries and territories to submit their voluntary emissions reduction targets, and to assess them internationally before making the goals final.

A draft proposal by the working group chairperson calls on countries to submit their targets a certain period ahead of the 2015 conference.

But developing nations led by China, India and the Philippines are against discussing post-2020 targets. They say industrialized countries are not doing enough to cut emissions before that year.

The 2 camps are also divided on funding for developing countries. One program would disburse funds to help such countries reduce emissions. Another would compensate them for damage caused by abnormal weather conditions.

New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party invites the Aam Aadmi – every citizen of Delhi - to come out and make their presence count in the democratic revolution.
On November 23 (tomorrow), AAP is organizing biggest gathering of its friends and supporters. People from across India would be joining us to support AAP’s goal of clean and honest political alternative. The entry for the event starts at 2pm.

New Delhi 22 November, 2013: Gwladys Nocera will be the player to watch when she tees up in the Hero Women’s Indian Open at Delhi Golf Club from November 28-30.

She is now riding high at fourth on the ISPS HANDA Order of Merit and really taking pleasure from her golf.

“I really enjoy India and they always make a really nice tournament. I won in 2007 and have good memories there so it’s always a good feeling and finishing the season with India and Dubai is really nice so I’m very much looking forward to it,” said Nocera, who is up for seeing the sights and sounds of the Indian capital.
“I will probably do a bit of sightseeing. I don’t like to stay in the hotel room. I like to look around the countries I visit.”

Also included in the field is Ladies European Tour (LET) stars Charley Hull and Holly Clyburn, battling for the Rolex Rookie of the Year title, along with a number of this year’s tournament champions such as Marianne Skarpnord and Ann-Kathrin Lindner.
