GENEVA, April 25 (Xinhua)-- United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Tuesday that only a cessation of hostilities and a political settlement can bring about a permanent end to the conflict and the suffering of the Yemeni people.

""Yemen today is experiencing a tragedy of immense proportions. Two years of conflict have devastated the lives of ordinary Yemenis,"" Guterres said here at a high-level pledging event for the humanitarian crisis in Yemen.

""War has devastated the economy David Njoku Brown Jersey , destroyed health services, and forced three million people from their homes -- leaving many unable to earn a living or grow crops. Basic services have collapsed, placing millions at risk of disease and other threats,"" he noted.

According to the UN, nearly two-thirds of the population Jabrill Peppers Brown Jersey , or almost 19 million people, need emergency support. Some 17 million are food-insecure, making it the world's largest hunger crisis. And seven out of 22 governorates are facing a severe food security emergency.

The UN head called on the parties to the conflict to engage in peace talks facilitated by his Special Envoy for Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed.

He urged everyone to facilitate the rapid and unimpeded passage of humanitarian aid by air, sea Womens Rashard Higgins Jersey , and land. All infrastructure must remain open and operational, he said.

Guterres said the humanitarian appeal for 2017 was 2.1 billion U.S. dollars, of which only 15 percent has been met until now.

" All emotional communication is either an act of love or a cry for help.

Either our needs are being met and we'd like to celebrate that with other people, or our needs are not being met and we would like empathy from others.

This is one of the basic premises of Dr. Marshall Rosenberg's communication theory, Nonviolent Communication. And the characters in the hit TV series Desperate Housewives soooo beautifully demonstrate this premise.

Take the episode from season 2 Womens Trevon Coley Jersey , "No One is Alone." In past episodes, Susan has remarried Carl in order to use his health insurance for a surgery she needs.

It's presumably just for the papers, not for any real romantic interest. Meanwhile, Carl and Eddie are becoming more serious. Nobody has told Edie of Susan's predicament and that they've remarried.

I was never sure why they would have kept that a secret, but truly Womens Randall Telfer Jersey , there ARE people who think that keeping secrets is the only way to go. That happens when they run into too much pain by being honest earlier in their lives.

This episode begins with the neighbors all gathering at Susan's burnt-down house to help her salvage as much as possible.

The insurance agent is there and tells Susan that they won't be able to give her the insurance money until they finish their investigation because it's believed it was arson.

Susan sees Edie across the street watching. Later she goes over to Edie's house and knocks on the door. Edie stands there, eating popcorn, and through her munching tells Susan that she burnt her house down.

Now... was that an act of love or a cry for help? What needs of Edie were not being met that she felt compelled to give such a loud cry for help? I'd take a wild guess that she's feeling sad, frustrated, and hopeless because she has a need for connection and love with the man she loves.

The only way she knows to express her pain is through this act of arson.

She never learned to tell people her feelings and needs Womens Seth DeValve Jersey , or to even really be in touch with what her true feelings and needs actually ARE. She only knows she's in pain and that she's got to do something to get rid of the pain.
Most people are not consciously aware that empathy, being truly understood by another human being, is enough to ease the pain. We look to revenge and violence in order to demonstrate our pain to the other person.

There's another part of this episode that shows brilliantly how people can choose a strategy to demonstrate their true feelings and needs, instead of choosing verbal communication to get their needs met. TV gives the following summary of the Bree and Danielle part of the episode:

"While Bree is preparing for Susan and Julie to move in, Danielle tells her that she's forgotten her birthday Womens JC Tretter Jersey , which was six weeks ago. Bree promises her a birthday party where she could invite all her friends. Danielle also takes Andrew's room, telling Bree she should give her whatever she wants since she forgot her birthday.

Danielle finds out that Bree has been up all night making birthday arrangements, but Danielle doesn't want the huge '17' made of balloons, the fajita bar or the juggler saying that her friends would make fun of her. She says a cake would be good enough. Bree is disappointed but acts like it's alright and starts popping all the balloons. Susan gets worried about Bree, as she's become obsessive about the party and she never sleeps."

Hmmmm... Now is Danielle's behavior an act of love or a cry for help? Danielle guilt-trips her mother into letting her have the bedroom she wants and a big party. That's probably a cry for help. Danielle may be feeling sad and disappointed that her mother forgets her birthday because she has a real need for connection Womens Kevin Zeitler Jersey , support and self-esteem.

But if she's unable to state her feelings and needs clearly, as so few of us are able to do (after all, we're never taught to clearly state feelings and.
