GAZA Preston Smith Jersey , March 22 (Xinhua) -- A senior United Nations official announced on Sunday that the results of investigating the Israeli bombing on the UN headquarters in the Gaza Strip will be declared very soon.


Commissioner General of UNRAW Pierre Krahenbuhl made the announcement at an inauguration ceremony of rebuilding an UNRWA school in the village of Khuza'a, east of the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Younis.


"The results of the UN enquiry, formed by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, to probe the bombardment of the UN buildings in the Gaza Strip during the last Israeli war on Gaza will be declared very soon," said Krahenbuhl.


The high-ranking senior UN official didn't give a specific date for declaring the results, but said "attacking schools and other civilian places which were not involved in any military action is not accepted at all."


"It is immoral and can never be accepted by the international law Brandon Scherff Jersey ," he said, adding that "83 educational structures and 10 medical clinics belonging to UNRWA were either directly or indirectly damaged."


In early November, Ban Ki-moon announced that the UN formed an inquiry committee to investigate the Israeli targeting of UN buildings during the Israeli military offensive waged on the Gaza Strip last summer.


During the 50-day offensive, the Israeli army bombed directly three UNRWA schools that were sheltering displaced families who escaped from their homes during the Israeli army ground operation.


Meanwhile, the senior UN official called on the donors to fulfill their pledges towards the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip, saying "if this fulfillment isn't done Montae Nicholson Jersey , this means that there will be more rage and more despair in Gaza."


There are tens of thousands of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip "are still homeless," said Ban Ki-moon, adding that "it is impossible to halt humanitarian aid or delay it especially when we see this tragic reality in Gaza."

Canada and South Africa are not the only countries where tourism is closely linked with sport. Ahead of Nepal?s Tourism Year of 2011, the Himalayan country is hoping to boost tourism and capitalise on the popularity of Everest Base Camp. Trekking is the major activity in the region, and vital for Nepal?s tourism, with adventure sports set to boost visitors in the coming years.

Sherpa at the Olympics

As I write Samaje Perine Jersey , the 2010 Vancouver Olympics are in full swing. In the Ice Hockey, the hosts Canada have lost their grudge match with the USA; Amy Williams has won a long yearned for gold medal for Britain in Luge, and there have been crashes galore on the slopes. Amid all this drama one of the memorable highlights was a moment of camaraderie from the 15km Free Cross Country event.

When participant Danny Silva of Portugal crossed the line in last place, more than ten minutes behind the field, he was greeted with rapturous applause that he wasn?t expecting. He was carried from the line by fellow competitors, the Ethiopian entrant and Dachhiri Sherpa from Nepal. Their smiling faces made one of the pictorial highlights of the games and captured something of the fabled Olympic spirit. For Dachhiri Sherpa Fabian Moreau Jersey , who finished in ninety third spot, just participating was achievement enough since he admits he?s not much of a skier.

Everest Marathon

Before taking up the sport, Dachhiri was an endurance runner. In 2002, he won the Himal race, an arduous 23 stage marathon race between Annapurna Base Camp and Everest Base Camp. After that, with the Olympics in mind Ryan Anderson Jersey , he was asked by his government to take up skiing. At that time, he had never been on skis before.

Although there are mountains galore and plenty of snow in the Himalayas, there are no facilities for skiing, which made it particularly difficult for Dachhiri to train. Instead, the focus of the region is the Everest Base Camp Trek trail that runs from the famous Lukla airport (renamed Hilary Tenzing airport in 2008) to the Base Camp on the side of the world?s highest mountain.

Rather than skiing, Nepal is geared up to host trekking and long distance running events such as the Everest Marathon Jonathan Allen Jersey , which the 40 year old Dachhiri used to run regularly. This is the highest marathon in the world, beginning at an altitude of over 5100 metres above sea level, within sight of Everest and its Base Camp.

Everest Tourism

In the future, Nepal is looking to widen its range of adventure sports. Some companies have made bids to run paragliding flights over Everest Base Camp and sightseeing flights near the mountain. A more outlandish proposition is to have a fixed hot air balloon next to the mountain, presumably to serve as a viewing platform, although I hope the winds around Mount Everest (8 Derrius Guice Jersey ,848 m) will be taken into account.

Ahead of the Nepal Tourism Year 2011, there have even been talks with China about reintroducing the Lhasa to Kathmandu bus service, a mutually beneficial move to restore a route between Tibet and Nepal. Also, with boosting tourism in mind, the Adventure Sports Tourism Society plans to schedule popular sporting competitions in Nepal such as Mountain Biking and Triathlon events. As well as promoting the Everest Marathon, the Nepal Association of Tour Operators aims to create spectacles such as a sky diving competition with Everest as the focal point.

Some tourism commentators have expressed a concern that Mount Everest may eventually become little more than a theme park venue in the Himalaya. On the other side of the world Da'Ron Payne Jersey , in Disneyland, Florida, the Everest Expedition ride has already put this theory into practise. On the ride, theme park goers can explore an imitation Himalayan landscape complete with prayer flags and Sherpa villages before boarding a rickety train to Everest Base Camp. The ride ascends a 200 foot high replica Mount Everest, where the riders have a startling encounter w.
