Volkswagen Beetle
 
53:49
The Volkswagen Beetle, officially the Volkswagen Type 1, or informally the Volkswagen Bug, is an economy car manufactured and marketed by German automaker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003. The need for this kind of car, and its functional objectives, were formulated by Adolf Hitler, leader of Nazi Germany, wishing for a cheap, simple car to be mass-produced for the new road network of his country. He contracted Porsche in 1934 to design and build it to his exacting standards. Ferdinand Porsche and his team took until 1938 to finalise the design. This is one of the first rear-engined cars. With over 21 million manufactured (21,529,464) in an air-cooled, rear-engined, rear-wheel drive configuration, the Beetle is the longest-running and most-manufactured car of a single design platform, worldwide.

Roblox is an online virtual playground and workshop, where kids of all ages can safely interact, create, have fun, and learn. It’s unique in that practically everything on Roblox is designed and constructed by members of the community. Roblox is designed for 8 to 18 year olds, but it is open to people of all ages. Each player starts by choosing an avatar and giving it an identity. They can then explore Roblox — interacting with others by chatting, playing games, or collaborating on creative projects. Each player is also given their own piece of undeveloped real estate along with a virtual toolbox with which to design and build anything — be it a navigable skyscraper, a working helicopter, a giant pinball machine, a multiplayer “Capture the Flag” game or some other, yet-to-be-dreamed-up creation. There is no cost for this first plot of virtual land. By participating and by building cool stuff, Roblox members can earn specialty badges as well as Roblox dollars (“Robux”). In turn, they can shop the online catalog to purchase avatar clothing and accessories as well as premium building materials, interactive components, and working mechanisms.

ITALY: US/RUSSIA/CHINA URGED TO SIGN LANDMINES AGREEMENT
 
02:25
English/Nat Europe's leading landmine specialists have urged the U-S, Russia and China to sign the Ottawa convention for the removal and destruction of all existing landmines. Meeting in Ispra, northern Italy, at the European Commission's joint research centre, they welcome they new developments in technology, but warned that nothing can be achieved without political change. The latest landmines clearance technology was unveiled at the European Commission's joint research centre in northern Italy. Scientists at the conference witnessed controlled explosions of antipersonnel devices and saw the latest infrared detection equipment as well as highly trained sniffer dogs. Landmines kill 26-thousand people each year - a cause taken up by Diana, Princess of Wales, shortly before her death. Many believe it was the publicity she gave to the cause which pushed nations into signing the Ottawa agreement. The Ottawa agreement signed in December 1997 set a deadline of 2008 for the removal and destruction of all existing mines, but wasn't signed by the U-S, Russia or China. SOUNDBITE: (French) "Of course this will not be a truly international action in that the US, Russia and China have not signed. The big effort which should be led by the EU is to convince them to sign the Ottawa agreement." SUPER CAPTION: Edith Cresson, European Commissioner for Science The vast numbers of landmines worldwide have caused death and injury to a great number of civilians - especially children - and so the need for mine clearance is great. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The real problem is not technical, but it's a political problem. We need to have priorities. We cannot cope with the whole globe, we need to know which is the priority, for example Bosnia or Cambodia and then we need to adapt accordingly the different technology." SUPER CAPTION: Alois Sieber, Head of Joint European Research Centre Landmines remain in 60 countries. Tuesday's conference is the first time international experts in landmines clearance have met and witnessed impressive breakthroughs in sophisticated detection equipments.

Robot Cambodia - New Technology 2016 , Future Tech, Internet of Everything.
 
00:11
Robot Cambodia - New Technology 2016. Opportunities for Robotics in Humanitarian Mine Action focused on minefield area reduction. Dr. Garrett M. Clayton, Associate Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Villanova University, reviewed current technologies, from robotic platforms to sensing technologies. Mr. UL Dara and Mr. Heng Sokmeng from the Faculty of Norton University discussed Mind Controlled Robots and how they can be used to help the elderly or disabled develop their full potential. They aim to create products and devices to support their movements and fully integrate them into society. Towards the end of the conference, there was a consensus that the establishment of a professional organisation for robotics engineers, similar to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), could strengthen the growing robotics community in the Kingdom. Other future plans include the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport developing a program to award grants to outstanding technological projects.

Fallujah Hospital Opens in Iraq with support of UNDP Iraq and Government of Japan
 
10:20
Published on Oct 23, 2013 Iraq showed great promise in the 1960s and 1970s but over 30 years of wars and sanctions since then have severely deteriorated many of the country's essential services, including in the health sector. The city of Fallujah, in Al-Anbar Governorate, 60km northwest of Baghdad, is home to over 350,000 people (2010 census), with many more in surrounding towns and villages. The city's health facilities and services have been further damaged by heavy fighting since the 2003 invasion. Child mortality and maternal health became especially problematic issues in Fallujah due to a lack of adequate facilities for gynaecological, obstetrics, and pediatric care. In addition, by 2005 the area experienced a major increase in leukemia and other cancers, with inadequate facilities or expertise to address these cases. The lack of facilities caused many people in need to travel to Baghdad for specialized medical care. This was especially dangerous given the security conditions in Al-Anbar and in Iraq since 2003. The Government of Japan has taken a leading role in supporting the Iraqi health sector. It supported the construction and rehabilitation of several hospitals in Iraq in the 1980s and 1990s. Following the 2003 invasion, the Government of Japan also provided major donations for the rehabilitation of many hospitals in different parts of Iraq. With the Iraq Ministry of Health constructing a new Fallujah General Hospital, the Government of Japan agreed with the Government of Iraq, and the United Nations Development Programme for Iraq (UNDP Iraq) in 2008 to rehabilitate the old Fallujah General Hospital into a world-class Maternity and Children's Hospital in line with international hospital standards. Part of the inspiration for this project was Mohammed Haitham, a boy who was partially blinded during the violence in Fallujah in 2004. No facility in Fallujah could treat Mohammed's injury, but he was met by a group from Japan including journalist Shinsuke Hashida, who promised to take him to Japan for treatment after finishing their assignment. Tragically, Mr. Hashida was killed before he could return to Fallujah, but his family brought Mohammed to Japan for successful treatment, and his wife established the Hashida Memorial Fund, which was one of the catalysts of this project. UNDP Iraq worked closely with the Iraqi Ministry of Health in the design, construction and implementation of this project. The old hospital was architecturally renovated and many deteriorating buildings were repaired. Modern facilities were built and state-of-the-art infrastructure was supplied, including a modern sewage treatment plant, HVAC system, power substations, and a modern kitchen. High-tech medical equipment was installed, including a CT scanner, X-ray machine, and premature birth incubators. The Ministry of Health also provided medical equipment and construction works, including roads and parking facilities and doctors' accommodations. Hospital medical, engineering, and administrative staff were trained in the use and maintenance of the new facilities and equipment. Finally, a community awareness campaign was also conducted, which included landscaping and beautification works, the provision of 90 date palm trees by community members, the provision and equipping of a day care centre, a childrens' playroom, and a small women-run mini-shop. As of its opening in March 2013, the hospital has 150 beds and employs 358 staff, including 29 doctors. It is able to serve numerous patients daily through both inpatient and outpatient diagnostic and treatment services.
