Human rights come home

first_img Join our LinkedIn Legal Aid sub-group You don’t expect good news to come out of the scandal of elderly people suffering abuse at the hands of their carers. Where’s the good news in the indignity of an elderly woman left stuck on the toilet because everyone was too busy to assist her? And how can good news ever be associated with a carer telling a patient to shut up because he was reading the newspaper? These are just some examples of the theft, neglect, rudeness and physical abuse uncovered by the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s (EHRC) review of home care, published earlier this week. EHRC commissioner Baroness Sally Greengross said that one way to address the problem was to ensure that ‘any care that is commissioned by a local authority or another public body should come under the Human Rights Act (HRA) so people are protected from abuse’. And that’s the good news because suddenly human rights are something that protects your granny or the old guy who lives next door. Human rights have come home. They are no longer the exclusive preserve of ‘bogus asylum seekers’ or sex offenders who demand pornography while in prison. They are not even the sole preserve of immigrant cat owners, as home secretary Theresa May in her ignorance told the Tory party conference. But before we get too excited: this is not the dawning of a new age for how human rights are reported in the right-wing press. The Telegraph lost no time in rubbishing Greengross’s words. We need basic human decency, Ed West wrote in a blog, not ‘new human rights being created and more lawyers enriched’. Human rights and ‘basic human decency’ are one and the same thing – the right to life, dignity, freedom from inhumane treatment and the rest of all that good stuff. And who’s suggesting ‘new human rights’? We can make do very nicely with our current crop, thank you, and won’t be paying any lawyers to pen fresh ones. The British Institute of Human Rights has long argued that human rights play an unrecognised role in protecting our basic freedoms and that more noise should be made about the positive things they achieve on our behalf. Its website gives numerous case histories, from the ‘learning disabled couple’ who had to resort to the HRA to have CCTV removed from their bedroom (you couldn’t make it up!) to the elderly couple who used it to stop their local council from separating them from one another. Unhappily, you don’t read these stories in the popular press. The two words ‘human rights’ are always said with a sneer, as some sort of alien, European encroachment on our hard-won British liberties. We should be reminding people that respect for human rights, as embodied first in the European Convention on Human Rights and then in our own HRA, has not only fostered peace between European nations since the second world war. It is also doing a good job of protecting granny and granddad, and you and me.last_img read more

Qualcomm Collaborates with ITRI on 5G Small Cell Development in Taiwan

first_imgQualcomm Technologies has collaborated on 5G NR-enabled small cell technologies with Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), a non-profit organization engaged in applied research and technical services. The effort is expected to accelerate delivery and global commercialization of 5G NR small cell products and infrastructure by Taiwanese original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and original design manufacturers (ODM).Small cells will be a key component of 5G networks, delivering enhanced performance utilizing both mmWave and sub 6 GHz spectrum. This new collaboration will provide ITRI early access to Qualcomm Technologies’ key 5G small cell technology, including the creation of industry-grade quality assurance capability for communication protocol product and a live network test bed to enable product testing and performance verification under real world environment prior to product launch field trials.Small cells are commonly used in densely populated areas, such as city centers, airports, sports venues and shopping centers to provide supplemental capacity in those areas. Small cells are also often deployed in homes, offices and other indoor or outdoor areas for coverage enhancement. To cater to such varying deployment use cases, small cells come in various forms, such as femtocells, picocells and microcells – each variant offers varying levels of capacity and coverage area. Small cells can be deployed either in a distributed (or standalone) architecture or in a centralized architecture with remote radio heads (RRH). Small cells including RRH will be needed to realize the full potential of 5G and are particularly well suited to support a wide range of spectrum bands including sub-6 GHz and mmWave (e.g., 28 and 39 GHz); and to support hyper-densification with expanded capacity and coverage, especially in challenging indoor environments. Small cell innovation will also be a key enabler for new types of deployments, both in mmWave and sub 6 GHz bands, such as private 5G networks, neutral hosts and fixed wireless.Taiwanese manufacturers have played a key role in the development of the global small cell ecosystem from the inception of the technology. Qualcomm Technologies has engaged with and relied on various Taiwanese partners over the years to develop 3G and 4G small cell products to serve global operators and OEM customers. Through delivering 3G and 4G small cell platforms to vendors and operators around the world, Taiwanese manufacturers have built the reputation and expertise required to scale the market effectively and deliver quality platforms cost effectively. Taiwan is well suited to be at the forefront of 5G small cell development – driving products that will improve experiences of wireless consumers around the world.In addition to supporting extreme mobile broadband application, such as VR and AR, and the massive IoT, 5G small cells can also support ultra-low latency applications. Compared to macrocells, small cell products are easier to deploy, cost effective and can adapt in various form factors to bring faster mobile data speeds in areas where macrocells are unable to reach.last_img read more

Lloris sees red as Tottenham’s Champions League hopes go up in flames

just about pull the plug on the North Londoners chances of the reaching the knockout phase.8 Hugo Lloris saw red as as late PSV equaliser denied Spurs a win in the NetherlandsCredit: Getty Images8 It was a bad night at the office for TottenhamCredit: Rex FeaturesAnd Spurs only had themselves to blame as they fought back from 1-0 down – only to let a 2-1 lead slip.They must have thought the hosts would not be so dangerous when their highly-rated right-winger Steven Bergwijn was ruled out with an ankle injury.This forced PSV boss Mark van Bommel to hand 19-year-old Donyell Malen his first Champions League start.But left-winger Lozano more than made up for his team-mate’s absence with an outstanding first half display full of pace, cunning and conning.Hugo Lloris watches the Tottenham game at PSV from the tunnel after red card as Harry Redknapp and Jermaine Jenas make their feelings clear8 Spurs are yet to win a European game this seasonCredit: Rex Features8 Lloris’ red card was a turning point in the gameCredit: GettyWhen the Mexican was not using his speed and skill to bamboozle the Spurs defence, he was using every trick in the book to try to win a free kick.This almost led to an early booking for Dembele, who vented his fury after his opponent went to ground far too easily in a touchline tussle between the pair.Kane, without a goal in the his previous three matches for club and country, twice went close to opening the scoring for Tottenham – first with a shot on the turn that was deflected over and then with a header from a Kieran Trippier corner which hit the post.Lozano then drew another free-kick out of Dembele – who this time was booked much to his disgust as he clearly felt the Mexican bandit had conned the ref again.8 PSV were thrilled when they netted a late equaliserCredit: Getty Images8 Lloris was sent off when he charged down an opponent in the second halfCredit: Getty ImagesGaston Pereiro, who has scored seven goals in PSV’s nine straight League wins this season, nearly rubbed salt into Dembele’s wounds by curling the resulting set piece just wide of the target from 25 yards.Heung-min Son then had a strike from a similar distance saved by keeper Jeroen Zoet at the other end.But you always felt Tottenham’s tactic of playing out from the back – regardless of whether their players were marked – in a bid to pull PSV out of position was going to end with them shooting themselves in the foot.And so it came to pass on the half-hour mark when, after a several narrow escapes, their last man Alderweireld was mugged by Lozano, who set off towards goal.Ole Toby mug did well to get back and tackle the PSV ace as he pulled the trigger.But unfortunately for him and Spurs all he succeeding in doing was deflecting the ball looping over Lloris and into the net.Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says he won’t blame Hugo Lloris after disastrous draw with PSV8 Spurs had been so close to winning with goals from Harry Kane and Lucas MouraCredit: Getty ImagesAlderweireld thought he had made amends five minutes later when his header from another Trippier corner was pushed out by Zoet and Davinson Sanchez smacked home the rebound for what the visitors believed was an equaliser.But the effort was chalked off as the Slovenian officials, led by referee Slavko Vincic, had spotted a push by Kane in the build up.Son then brilliantly waltzed his way through the right of PSV defence before seeing Zoet block his shot superbly.But Tottenham were level in the 40th minute as Trippier got in behind the Dutch defence and pulled the ball back for Moura, whose shot flew into the roof of the net via a deflection or two.Even then Spurs nearly blew it as they allowed Pereiro to fire off a shot in the box which hit the bar on its way over, much to the visitors’ relief.Tottenham looked the only likely winners after the break as Christian Eriksen, playing his first game for a month after recovering from an abdominal injury, had a shot well saved by Zoet.8 Spurs have picked up just one point from three Champions League games so farCredit: ReutersMost Read In SportFeatureNAKED TRUTHThe most embarrassing wardrobe
