Appointing a War Criminal as Sri Lankan Army's Chief of Staff is a Slap in the Face to UN Human Rights Council: TGTE

TGTE Denounces the Appointment of War Criminal and Genocidaire Major General Shavendra Silva as Sri Lankan Army's Chief of Staff. Below: Video Killing Field

Shavendra Silva's appointment is a sign of Sri Lanka's repudiation of its obligations to UNHRC. Deny Sri Lanka any more time extensions and refer Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court (ICC)”

— Visivanathan Rudrakumaran

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, January 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) vehemently denounces the appointment of Major General Shavendra Silva, a genocidal war criminal named by several UN reports for his role in the massacre and disappearance of tens of thousands of Tamils during Sri Lanka’s conflict, as the Sri Lankan Army’s new Chief of Army Staff. NOTE: Attached Video: Sri Lanka's Killing Field.

“If anyone took the Supreme Court’s actions last month as proof that Sri Lanka could investigate itself for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide committed by the State, the appointment of Major General Silva–one of the men most responsible for these heinous and inhumane crimes–proves that idea null and void” said Mr. Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, Prime Minister of Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE).

“Among a long list of reasons why we need international investigation and prosecution to achieve justice, consider that Major General Silva, according to the UN’s own reports, is responsible for the exclusion of any international presence in the Vanni during the final stage of the conflict. This was a calculated move intended to facilitate the Tamil Genocide. The same was done in Rwanda. It’s a tactic that’s been employed elsewhere before atrocity crimes were committed,” said Mr. Rudrakumaran. “So, can a State that appoints a man responsible for ridding the Vanni of any international witnesses to one of the highest posts in the nation be trusted to investigate itself? Of course not.”

What ensued in the Vanni in the May 2009 at the hands of Major General Silva’s 58th Division of the Sri Lankan Army, as reported by the UN, NGOS and other independent parties, includes mass murder of over 70,000 Tamils, forced disappearances, extrajudicial murders, rape, the calculated denial of food and humanitarian aid designed to being about death, the deliberate shelling of hospitals and displacement camps, and torture: all of which amount to the perpetration of atrocity crimes, including genocide.

“This appointment is a staggering affront to the international community, especially the United Nations Human Rights Council, which worked with Sri Lanka exhaustively and in good-faith for years to devise a plan of action to make peace, reconciliation, and accountability in Sri Lanka a reality. Instead, both have been served a platter of betrayal,” said Mr. Rudrakumaran.

The plan of action for transitional justice, detailed in two UN resolutions—the second a generous time extension of the first that now seems more like foolishness. “The UNHRC already granted Sri Lanka a two-year extension to fulfill its obligations. That expires this year. Also this year, Sri Lanka is up for UNHRC review. TGTE calls on the UNHRC to interrogate Sri Lanka on Major General Silva's appointment as a sign of the State's repudiation of its obligations, deny Sri Lanka any more time extensions—as it has already failed the international community enough—and to refer Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court (ICC),” Mr. Rudrakumaran added.

As Major General of the 58th Division, in addition to the above crimes, Major General Silva, bears significant responsibility for tens of thousands of disappeared Tamils. Mass graves also continue to be uncovered.

“Appointing the man responsible for a huge number of disappearances to an important national post is the best way to rob the Office of Missing Persons of any teeth,” noted Mr. Rudrakumaran. “I urge the UNHRC to raise this issue during their review.”

Major General Silva was subject of a war crimes lawsuit in New York in 2011, dismissed on the grounds of diplomatic immunity. In 2012, Major General was also removed from a UN peacekeeping committee because of these allegations.

“The appointment of Major General Silva not only signals a likely death for the peace, and justice process, but it also further increases the very real threat to the lives of Tamils,” said Mr. Rudrakumaran. “TGTE calls on the international community to stay vigilant to this enhanced threat, and to exercise universal jurisdiction if Major General Silva—or any of the individuals responsible for the Tamil Genocide—ever sets foot on their soil.”

The auction will be held online and in Holabird’s gallery located at 3555 Airway Drive (Suite 308) in Reno. Offered will be nearly 4,000 lots of Americana.

This is the third sale in what has been an exciting fall and winter season for us.”

— Fred Holabird

RENO, NEV., UNITED STATES, January 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — RENO, Nev. – Holabird Western Americana Collections is following up its massive “to die for” auction in December with another five-day colossus comprising nearly 4,000 lots of Americana. The auction – appropriately titled Treasures Galore – will be held Thursday to Monday, January 24th thru 28th, online and in Holabird’s gallery located at 3555 Airway Drive (Suite 308) in Reno.

Start times all five days will be 8 am PST. An office preview will be held Wednesday, Jan. 23rd, from 9-5 (or by appointment). For those unable to attend the sale in person, online bidding will be facilitated by iCollector.com and Invaluable.com. “This is the third sale in what has been an exciting fall and winter season,” said Fred Holabird of Holabird Western Americana Collections.

Day 1, on Thursday, January 24th, will kick off with nearly 100 lots of antique bottles, many of them from the Geoff Pollock Collection, gathered throughout Utah. Offered will be whiskeys, medicines, poisons, cures, beers and more. Specialty lots like the three gorgeous Boca, California beers will supplement the category. Bidders looking to diversify their collections will be pleased.

The numismatics section – more than 200 lots – will feature token dies, tokens, medals, coins and currency, checks, books, ingots, so-called dollars and selections from the Medallic Arts / Northwest Territorial Mint liquidation, led by a display board containing a near-complete set (72 of 80 medals) of the first 40 issues of the Society of Medallists, 1930-1949 (est. $2,000-$4,000).

Other star lots on Day 1 promise to be a complete set of eleven five-ounce 999 silver medallions marking the 50th anniversary of the release of Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, from 1987 (est. $1,700-$3,000); and an historic 500-troy ounce bullion scale made by Troemner out of Philadelphia for the U.S. Mint, with the original blue paint and base (est. $7,500-$10,000).

The session will also feature general Americana lots in various categories, to include American directories, 30 or more maps, history and reference books, badges, comic books, World’s Fair and Expos, political memorabilia, dolls, circus collectibles, breweriana, cigar and tobacco, Gold Rush items, jewelry and watches, postcards, toys, stereoviews, vintage apparel and Civil War.

Day 2, on Friday, January 25th, will start more Americana, including selections of non-mining and railroad stocks from the Ken Prag collection. Two significant archives will be sold: the Edison-Swan incandescent light patent archive from England and the Van Camp Hardware (Indiana) archive of about 3,500 pieces. Also sold will be railroadiana and rare western rails.

The Edison-Swan patent archive (circa 1880-1883) pertains to one of the most important modern inventions: incandescent lighting. The archive consists of original British patents issued to men working for Thomas Edison or Joseph Swan as part of the Edison-Swan Company at the onset of the invention and manufacture of incandescent lighting. It has an estimate of $10,000-$20,000.

Day 2 will also feature a stock certificate in the amount of 75 shares for the Eureka & Colorado River Rail Road Company (Nev.), issued to a Hiram Johnson, dated May 17, 1882, with a nice train vignette (est. $500-$1,000); and a group of photos showing a family climbing Cave Rock in the Glenbrook area of Lake Tahoe and engaging in other leisure activities (est. $900-$2,000).

Day 3, Saturday, January 26th, will see a continuation of Americana across the board, but with an emphasis on all aspects of mining. Most mine ore specimens are from Utah. Also sold will be high-grade specimens from the Geoff Pollock collection, as well as artifacts, old mine lighting, explosives and mining stocks, plus more of the Prag Silver Mountain (Aurora, Nev.) collection.

Additional mining lots will feature art, assay, bonds, books, hats, ingots, jewelry, fobs, maps, photos and postcards. Day 3 will also include transportation, Wells Fargo/Express, postal history items, military collectibles and more. One of the more intriguing lots is a baby stingray fossil, probably from the Green River formation, 6.5 inches by 4 inches and framed (est. $700-$2,000).

Day 3 also features a Becker fine balance scale, a rare, two-drawer showpiece that was either a lab or gold scale, made circa 1895-1915 (est. $3,000-$5,000). Christian Becker was one of ten balance manufacturers to begin making assay balances in the U.S. The Becker companies (N.Y.) also contributed to the development of analytical balance, bullion balance and specialty scales.

Day 4, Sunday, January 27th, will contain more mining collectibles, mostly from the Ken Prag collection, plus additional mining ephemera and stocks, both domestic and foreign. But the day will also feature original art (to include sculptures), Native American art and objects, cowboy collectibles, firearms, gaming and saloon. In total, 685 lots will cross the auction block on Day 4.

A Day 4 lot worth mentioning is a rare Yuba County (Calif) “Gold Lands” title, stating that 640 acres of “gold lands” were sold to a company in London, England for $200,000, in 1858. The deed is from John A. Sutter (of Sutter’s Fort fame) to Sylvester Patrick and others, with the grant then going to Edward Lee Hooff, who then assigned it to a Dr. A. Campbell (est. $1,000-$3,000).

Day 5, on Monday, January 28th, marks the expansion of the Bargain/Dealer Section that was started by Holabird over a year ago and became quite popular. The section contains over 1,300 lots, with many rarities. “We lowered the boom on prices,” Fred Holabird said, “reducing our normal pricing by up to half. We decided to put it in the catalog before lots hit the podium.”

An interesting Day 5 lot is the original book of stock certificates for the Porter Gold & Silver Mining Company of Butte County, Calif. The book contains about 230 issued pieces and around 250-300 unissued certificates, all showing vignettes of the mine. Lithography was performed by Drouaillet of San Francisco. The book binding shows wear and the estimate is $1,500-$4,000.

In addition to in-person and online bidding, telephone and absentee bids will also be accepted.

Color catalogs are available by calling 1-844-492-2766, or 775-851-1859. Also, anyone owning a collection that might fit into an upcoming Holabird Western Americana Collections auction is encouraged to get in touch. The firm travels extensively throughout the U.S., to see and pick up collections. Last year it visited Boston, Florida, Seattle and New York, among other destinations.

Holabird Western Americana is always seeking quality bottle, advertising, Americana and coin consignments for future auctions. To consign a single piece or a collection, you may call Fred Holabird at 775-851-1859 or 844-492-2766; or, you can e-mail him at fredholabird@gmail.com.

NEW YORK , NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Perks Group is a national program that provides regional discounts to its members, helping them save on a range of items, excursions, and services. PerksConnect gives its members discounts on more than the luxuries in life, treating them to savings on many necessary purchases.

Companies across the country invest in Perks Group offerings to give them access to a world of discounts and encouraging retention while demonstrating employee appreciation.

Perks is a comprehensive program that helps members save money on many of their traditional purchases. The discount merchandise service comes with savings on thousands of brand name items as well as more essential purchases like coupons for grocery stores and local restaurants. While the merchant network does save members hundreds of dollars each year on things like local attractions, travel, and shopping, PerksConnect also offers discounts on necessary items and services like gas and home cleaning that can be used by anywhere in the US.

The driving concept behind the Perks Group’s offerings is “there is strength in numbers.” With this idea in mind, the group brings together consumers, local merchants, daily deal networks, national merchants, manufacturers, and distributors all under one program to ensure savings and convenience to its members.

Today, over 200,000 business locations throughout the U.S. honor perks discounts, making it one of the strongest and most robust discount programs in the country. New merchants are added daily, so the Perks Group recommends that members visit the program website regularly to check for updated discounts and fresh offerings.

Users link up easily with local discounts since the program offerings are found online or accessed through a smartphone app. Members can search by city, state, and zip code for discounts to find local deals or else update lists of potential savings in various regions while traveling. All members need to access their discounts is a smartphone, access through an 800-number using a value code, downloading coupons online, or using instant savings by making purchases online through a qualifying link.

Perks started out in 1988 as an employer-sponsored savings program for companies with 1,000 or more employees. The affinity program has grown to accommodate members across the country with top-notch savings both near and far, and it regularly updates its offerings to stay relevant and easy-to-use. In 2011, the group began offering mobile discounts through the PerksConnect app so members could access any of their savings on the go.

The Perks Group is used today in over 1,000 major corporations, colleges, alumni associations and other affinity groups throughout the United States with millions of members earning discounts and savings.

United States patent 10,163,031 empowers RetailNext’s full path analysis capabilities, allowing retailers to measure the complete in-store shopping journey by mapping the entire sales floor and stitching together data streams from different video sensors. Combined with RetailNext’s powerful suite of interior analytics solutions, including dwell conversion and merchandising, retailers are able to determine how shoppers, over time and at scale, navigate and shop through the store, including engagement with various displays, product merchandise and service areas.

“Retailers strive to understand shoppers’ full connected journeys, both online and in-store, and the largest data void is what happens in-store, from the front door to the register,” said Lauren Bitar, head of retail consulting at RetailNext. “Full path analysis unlocks the mystery of in-store shopping, allowing retailers the ability to further test, learn and improve upon the delivered shopping experience. RetailNext’s ability to take full shopper journeys and segment them based on criteria such as age or gender, buyer versus non-buyer, or staff versus shopper takes the level of understanding to the next level and allows retailers to analyze their in-store activity in the way they’ve become accustomed to with digital mediums.”

Improved Accuracy
United States patent 10,134,146 covers the detecting, tracking and counting of objects in videos, and is used to establish the market-leading accuracy of RetailNext’s shopper traffic counting solution with its Aurora all-in-one sensor.

“When it comes to shopper traffic counting and advanced retail analytics, accuracy is everything,” continued Bitar. “Retailers are making strategic and tactical decisions on data insights, and the effectiveness of any corrective action is only as good as the data driving the decision-making processes. When this precise measurement is combined with our team’s deep understanding of today’s retail, we get closer and closer to the elusive understanding of the full shopper journey and how it can be optimized to drive shopper experience.”

PCIHIPAA Establishes a $10,000 Fund to Assist Employees in Need During Government Shutdown

The Santa Monica based HIPAA compliance company encourages other businesses to join the movement to help unpaid government employees

Our company wants to help those in serious need, so we decided to establish a Shutdown Fund”

— Jeff Broudy CEO of PCIHIPAA

SANTA MONICA, CA, UNITED STATES, January 10, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — As the government shutdown enters its 20th day, approximately 380,000 federal employees are furloughed. They are not allowed to go to work and are not being paid. There's another 420,000 employees working in essential positions and are required to continue working without pay. It is nearly impossible to nail down a specific number of how many federal contract employees are impacted by this shutdown, however according to the New York Times, employees are impacted in every state.

PCIHIPAA, a HIPAA compliance company based in Santa Monica, California has decided to help. They've announced a $10,000 Shutdown Fund to help employees that have not, and will not get paid because of the government shutdown. "Innocent people are being harmed. It's not right, and it's not the American way. Our company wants to help those in serious need, so we decided to establish a Shutdown Fund." says Jeff Broudy, CEO.

To qualify for assistance you have to be a government employee that is currently not being paid because of the shutdown. For those that want to learn more, visit www.pcihipaa.com/shutdownhelp.

It's been reported that TSA employees received their last paycheck on Dec. 28. Many TSA workers and other governmental employees live paycheck to paycheck. Missing just one paycheck can create immense pressure. According to Joe Shuker, Regional Vice President, TSA Employee Union, "Many workers will have to choose between the cost of getting to their job at the airport and covering everyday living expenses." In addition, the US Department of Agriculture announced that funding for food stamps and subsidized school lunches for poor children would run out within a month or two. These programs all help poor families and students buy groceries and school lunches. For now, people who rely on these programs can still use them.

Broudy adds, "I'd like to encourage all businesses to try and help the workers that help us. Maybe you can establish your own fund, or you can pile on to PCIHIPAA's. We can join forces to do something good during a bad situation."
