first_imgTRIPOLI – Libya’s coastguard has rescued 84 illegal immigrants from Africa in the sea off Tripoli, Lana news agency quoted a maritime official as saying on Thursday.“The Libyan coastguard supported by special forces of the Navy rescued 84 illegal migrants of various African nationalities whose boat had broken down in the sea north of Tripoli” late on Wednesday, the official said.“All of the migrants are healthy and have been transferred to the (western) port of Zawiya where they were handed over to agencies that fight illegal immigration.” On Tuesday nearly 100 migrants from sub-Saharan Africa escaped from a detention centre at Gharyan in southwestern Libya. Seventy-five of them were subsequently arrested.With a 1,770-kilometre (1,100 miles) coastline, Libya is a favoured country of transit for would-be migrants from southern and western Africa seeking to reach Europe in search of a better life.But the journey is frequently perilous, and hundreds of Africans have drowned in the Mediterranean en route for Europe this month alone.

UN agriculture agency urges more research into role of animals in spreading

The infection – which has caused numerous human illnesses and deaths – was spotlighted at the regional consultation convened by FAO and the Ministry of Agriculture and Fishery of Oman, where experts revealed that the origins of the illness may be linked to animals. “It is vitally important for the international community to increase our understanding of ‘where’ and ‘how’ the virus is transmitted, ‘who’ the source is – whether animal or human – and ‘when’ and ‘why’ certain people are spreading the virus,” said Juan Lubroth, FAO’s Chief Veterinary Officer.Participants drew attention to the “recent upsurge in human cases in the Arabian Peninsula and the suspected zoonotic transmission involving, in particular, dromedary camels.”“There is an urgent need to focus investigations on the epidemiology of MERS-CoV in animal species, to prevent human primary infections and to avoid putting other people in danger,” Mr. Lubroth pressed.In a bid to keep the infection from spreading, a declaration warned public health and veterinary authorities to carry out coordinated investigations and share information and results.The experts agreed on a list of specific recommendations to increase knowledge about the transmission of the virus to humans and to minimize its impact on animal and human health – as well as agriculture and livestock-related livelihoods. “By better understanding the epidemiology, we can provide the necessary guidelines to avoid spillover from animals to humans and protect the camel or other animal industries from potential negative consequences,” explained Mr. Lubroth. As of 21 May, MERS had led to over 630 laboratory-confirmed illnesses among humans and more than 190 deaths since 2012, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). It has affected people primarily in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but cases have also been reported in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Jordan, Oman and Yemen.Other cases reported in Asia, North Africa, Europe and North America have been linked to travel or work in the Middle East region, reflecting the role that the speed of global travel can potentially play in the spread of disease agents.The majority of cases have occurred through human-to-human transmission, however it remains to be determined if people may have been infected by contact with environmental or animal sources.Mr. Lubroth emphasized, “participants in the MERS consultation agreed that there is also a vital need to raise awareness among the public at large about the importance of seeking medical attention, the nature of the disease, and ways to avoid it.”The recommendations, which focus on the potential link with camels or other animal sources, counsel that priorities be given to raising public awareness of MERS-CoV; urgent investment in research and surveillance of animals; the systematic search for potential sources of human infection from animal sources or the environment; and joint efforts and coordination among public health authorities.Coronaviruses – widespread in animals – can infect livestock and a wide range of wild species, including bats, rodents and birds. According to FAO, some studies have revealed that that MERS-CoV has been circulating in camels in Saudi Arabia since at least 1992. Genetic evidence of the infection was found in camel samples from a farm in Qatar and in other studies in Egypt and Saudi Arabia. read more

Saudi Arabia  UN experts push for prompt release of women human rights

“In stark contrast with this celebrated moment of liberation for Saudi women, women’s human rights defenders have been arrested and detained on a wide scale across the country, which is truly worrying and perhaps a better indication of the Government’s approach to women’s human rights,” said UN Human Rights experts in a joint statement.“We call for the urgent release of all of those detained while pursuing their legitimate activities in the promotion and protection of women’s rights in Saudi Arabia,” added the Special Rapporteurs and experts.The crackdown began on 15 May with a spate of prominent women’s rights defenders’ arrests. Over the following three weeks, some 12 other human rights defenders, including both women and men, were also arrested.The majority of detainees were advocating for lifting the driving ban and for improvements in women’s rights within Saudi Arabia. Many of those detained face extremely serious charges, such as 20 years in prison, according to reports.Although charges have not been confirmed, the experts’ statement said that some of those imprisoned have been reportedly accused of undermining national security, and of acting against religious and national foundations inside Saudi Arabia.These arrests portray a contradictory stance in policy regarding women’s rights  –UN Experts“Women human rights defenders face compounded stigma, not only because of their work,” added the statement, “but also because of discrimination on gender grounds.”While noting that Saudi Arabia has won acclaim for its recent programme of modernization under Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, the experts said that “these arrests portray a contradictory stance in policy regarding women’s rights.”“We reiterate our long-time concern over others detained in Saudi Arabia on the basis of their activism and the exercise of their right to freedom of expression as well as their right to freedom of association,” the experts stated, urging the Government to improve its human rights record, “especially with regards to women’s rights.”“The first step in demonstrating such commitment is to free the human rights defenders who remain in prison solely as a result of working to advance the enjoyment of rights for all,” the experts concluded.Special Rapporteurs and other UN rights experts are appointed by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council, as honorary positions, to examine and report back on a specific human rights theme or country situation. read more

Policewoman sacked after elbowing her mothers love rival into the reduced meat

first_imgFootage showed Pc Walker stick out her elbow and step into the victim, sending the woman stumbling into a 180-degree spin, with her shoe flying off in one direction, and a pack of meat she was holding, in the other.Afterwards the victim, in her 50s, spoke to a store manager who confirmed the incident had been caught on CCTV and an investigation was launched resulting in the disciplinary action.Pc Walker and the victim had only briefly met once before, more than a year prior to the incident, when there had been no trouble.For her part, Pc Walker claimed she only went to say hello, and put her elbow out in what she described as a “friendly” greeting.Giving her version of events, Pc Walker said: “I would say it was perhaps ill-timed and somewhat clumsy but due to the confined space and my basket, it just comes over as awkward and a little clumsy.”But presenting the case against 40-year-old Pc Walker, Matthew Holdcroft said the officer had employed a “direct, violent elbow strike” on her victim. During a two-day hearing, panel members were told of a long-standing and bitter family feud in the run-up to the in-store incident.Pc Walker’s mother had been previously married to the man who had gone on to wed the victim, leaving a history of bad feeling.By coincidence, that victim and her husband were chanced upon by Pc Walker in the aisles of the Asda store in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire, at about 7.20pm on June 24, 2014.In shocking footage shown to the panel during the two-day hearing in Birmingham, Pc Walker could be seen approaching the couple swinging an empty shopping basket as she closed in.Giving her account of what happened next, the victim, who cannot be named, said she initially did not recognise Pc Walker.She said: “I was in Asda looking into the chiller for meat and Beth had just come up.”I said ‘oh sorry luv, do you want to have a look’?”And she said ‘don’t luv me’.”She barged me and then said ‘that was a long time coming’.”She said ‘it’s not over yet’.” The incident took place in an Asda storeCredit:Sean Dempsey /PA Asda I would say it was perhaps ill-timed and somewhat clumsyBeth Walkercenter_img A police officer has been sacked after she was caught on supermarket CCTV attacking her mother’s love rival in the chiller aisle.Off-duty police constable Beth Walker, a serving officer with West Midlands Police, struck out with an elbow with such force that her victim was “knocked flying” near the reduced meat section.Harry Ireland, professional misconduct panel chairman, said Pc Walker had carried out a “gratuitous, violent act” on a member of the public.After finding the officer guilty of gross misconduct on Thursday, the panel also found her apology to the victim was “too little too late”. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Examining the constable’s evidence in front of the panel, he asked the officer of 13 years: “This is your last chance to say this was a moment of madness, stupidity, and should never have happened.”Do you understand that? Your career is on the line, yes?”Pc Walker denied she had maliciously hit out at the victim and replied that the elbow was “an acknowledgement of somebody’s presence”.Concluding his case, Mr Holdcroft said: “What that video shows is a direct, violent elbow strike to a member of the public and it was motivated by your recognition of the couple.”The reason we see no attempt to apologise or assist her, is you knew exactly what you were doing and it had exactly the effect you intended didn’t it?”He added that “considerably bigger” and “stronger” Ms Walker struck the victim with such force it sent one of her shoes flying off in one direction and a packet of meat she was holding in the other.Mr Holdcroft said: “You must have realised at that point she was being knocked flying by you, mustn’t you?”Pc Walker replied: “I was aware I’d made contact,” adding “it’s just a mannerism I use”.Barrister Kevin Baumber representing Pc Walker said the incident “was a supermarket tiff”, and “more a storm in a teacup than an attack on an innocent member of the public”.Pc Walker, who had worked in the response and neighbourhood policing teams in Birmingham city centre, was dismissed with immediate effect.last_img read more

Fort Lauderdale Mayor addresses city one last time

first_imgFORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) – The Mayor of Fort Lauderdale, Jack Seiler, addressed his city for the last time, Tuesday.Seiler said his city has prospered thanks to economic growth and the development of new projects.“When you talk about the strength of a city, you talk about the strength of the weakest neighborhood,” he said. “That weakest link, that weakest neighborhood, is how you judge the strength of a city, and right now I feel that we don’t have a weak link, or a weak neighborhood.”Seiler highlighted in his speech that sustainable growth is the way of the future.With all the growth, Fort Lauderdale’s unemployment rate currently stands lower than state and national averages, at 3.4 percent.Commissioners Bruce Roberts and Dean Trantalis will go head-to-head for Seiler’s seat in a run-off election scheduled for March 13.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Deadbeat dam due for demolition

first_imgAn old dam on the Eklutna River has blocked salmon runs there for decades. Now, an Alaska Native tribe wants to tear the dam down and restore fish to the river.Download AudioPhoto: The Conservation Fund.It stands in a canyon 400 feet deep, a mile or so off the Glenn Highway, but hidden from the view of passing motorists. The old Eklutna Dam was built in 1929, to divert Eklutna River water for Anchorage hydroelectric power. It operated for only thirty years, before Eklutna Lake water, the source of the river, was diverted elsewhere for another hydro project.  For half a century, the dam has been obsolete, as far as power is concerned, but it is still blocking salmon runs.“It’s completely backfilled with sediment, it’s about 61 feet tall and maybe 100 feet wide. And it’s blocking fish passage into the Eklutna River. There are five species of salmon that spawn in the lower reaches of the river, but they can’t get past the dam.”Brad Meiklejohn is the Alaska director for the Conservation Fund.  He says the idea was inspired by the 2014 documentary film, “Dam Nation.” Micklejohn says the old dam has to go, so that salmon runs can be restored to the the river.The  Conservation Fund has pledged to pay the cost of the project,and  the local Alaska Native corporation, Ekluna, Inc., is on board with the plan.Curtis McQueen, CEO of Eklutna Inc, says it’s been a dream of his for years to see the dam removed. He says it will “lift the spirit of the village,” and that spirit is intertwined with salmon.“We have a few elders that are in their late 80s, and 90s,  that as children, remember where they would race out of their house, literally to the Eklutna River, which was a raging river, and they were fed. So all summer long until late in the fall, they could count on their subsistence right in their backyard.”But over the decades, railroad and highway projects have altered the river bed radically, essentially devastating the lower river near the village. A U.S. Army Corps of Engineers study done [2011 -2012] a couple of years ago confirmed the problem, but indicated mitigation is possible. McQueen says pools could be created in the riverbed for salmon fry to hide in, or riverbank restoration projects could provide protection for small fish. But a greater problem needs to be addressed, he says.“Between the deep water and the protection, you might be able to improve the bottom, but that isn’t going to solve the big picture. And the big picture is, someday, getting more water down the watershed.”Since regular maintenance on the dam ceased decades ago, debris, boulders and silt have built up behind it. That will have to be removed, but Brad Mieklejohn says taking the old dam out is the easier of the two-part plan. The second part… the task of  getting more water back into the Eklutna River…will be the “hard part,” he says.The Eklultna River is pretty much devoid of water these days, because a second dam at its headwaters at Eklutna Lake diverts water to the hydropower station on the Knik River, where the water is dumped into the Knik.That power plant was build under a federal program, then signed over to a consortium of Chugach Electric, Matanuska Electric Association and Muni Light and Power during the 1990s. The companies own the water rights to Eklutna Lake. Meiklejohn says a 1991 federal agreement requiring habitat mitigation could be a tool to pry at least some of that water loose. He recently told an audience at Palmer’s Salmon Symposium“And we are calling on all the parties that signed this agreement to open it up, start talking about mitigation. Our view is, you break it, you fix it. You take all the water out of a river, it’s a pretty clear impact, it’s pretty easy to define. ”Phil Steyer, spokesman for Chugach Electric, says his company as yet has no information on the plan, and cannot comment yet.McQueen says Eklutna has a good relationship with all three companies, and points out that MEA built its newest power facility on Eklutna land.“What we’d like to do is at some point in the future, is to have those conversations with the utilities, and ask their help, in finding a balance where they still have the hydro needs that they want… they still can generate the revenue off selling water, that they want. The question is, can some of that lake water be released, or redirected back. ”Meilkejohn says those conversations have yet to take place. And he says no one knows how much water is needed to restore salmon habitat.At this time, McQueen says, Eklutna Inc is focusing on removal of the old dam. Work is scheduled to begin next year, and it is hoped the village will be celebrating the dam’s demise by 2018.last_img read more

Akshay Kumar takes control of Laxmmi Bomb after Raghavas exit new director

first_imgAkshay Kumar with filmmaker Raghava Lawrence; Laxmmi Bomb movie posterTwitterAfter Raghava Lawrence opted out of Laxmmi Bomb, Akshay Kumar has taken control of the project and will take a decision to hire a new director. Laxmmi Bomb is the Hindi remake of horror comedy Kanchana 2: Ganga (2015), also known as Muni 3: Kanchana 2: Ganga. Actress Kiara Advani is there in the female lead.The original film is a Tamil horror comedy film written, produced and directed by Raghava Lawrence. The filmmaker also stars in the leading role in Kanchana 2 Tamil, along with Taapsee Pannu, Nithya Menen and Kovai Sarala. Lawrence directed and starred in the 2011 original Kanchana as well, known as Muni 2: Kanchana. The film was remade in Kannada as Kalpana 2 in 2016.Raghava Lawrence was on board to direct the Hindi remake, which would have also marked his Bollywood debut. But there was a rift with the makers of the Hindi version when the first poster of Laxmmi Bomb was released on social media without the knowledge of the director.Following this, Raghava Lawrence stepped down from his position as director of Laxmmi Bomb, but promised to hand over the script of the film to Akshay Kumar as a mark of respect for the actor. The director said in a statement on Twitter: Hi dear friends and fans, There is an old popular saying in Tamil which tells “Don’t step into any house where there is no respect”. In this world, more than money and fame, self-respect is the most important attribute to a person’s character. So I have decided to step out of the project, ‘Laxmmi Bomb’, the Hindi remake of Kanchana. I don’t want to mention the reason because there are multiple reasons, but one of them is that the first look poster of the film was released today without my knowledge and even without discussing anything with me. I was informed about this by a third person. It is very painful for a director to know about his movie’s first look release from others. I feel very disrespected and disappointed. As a creator, I’m also not satisfied with the poster design as well. This shouldn’t happen to any director.I can hold back my script because I haven’t signed any agreement regarding this film, but I won’t do it because it is not professional. I’m ready to give my script because I personally respect Akshay Kumar sir a lot. They can replace me with some other director according to their wish. Soon I’m going to meet Akshay Kumar sir to give the script and step out of this project in a good way. All the very best to the entire team. I wish the movie a great success.Love, Raghava Lawrence.Laxmmi Bomb is produced by Cape of Good Films along with actor Tusshar Kapoor’s Tusshar Entertainment and fashion designer Shabinaa Khan’s Shabinaa Entertainment. After Raghava Lawrence’s exit, the makers held a meeting on May 18 and decided to bring in a new director, reports Mumbai Mirror.The film is written by Farhad Samji, who is also the writer and director of Akshay Kumar’s film Housefull 4. Will Farhad be roped in for Laxmmi Bomb as the director?last_img read more

He says his government in 2011 was concerned it might have “to restrict capital outflows from banks and indeed to have the army surrounding ATM machines.” “However, one thing should be very clear: if someone says that the government will have a stronger negotiating position with the ‘no’ vote, it is simply not true.”He added: “I’m afraid that which such a result of referendum, there will be even less space for negotiation.”___8:35 p.m.U.K. Treasury Chief George Osborne says a Greek exit from the euro would be “traumatic” and Britain should “hope for the best but prepare for the worst.”Britain is not a member of the single currency, but Osborne says the Greek crisis was “one of the biggest external economic risks to the British economy and the situation today shows that these risks remain.”He told lawmakers: “I don’t think anyone should underestimate the impact a Greek exit from the euro would have on the European economy and the knock on effects on us.”He said he had met Monday with Prime Minister David Cameron, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond and Bank of England Governor Mark Carney to coordinate Britain’s response to the crisis.Osborne said several thousand Britons who live in Greece but receive British pensions would continue to get their payments.

But the creditors kept asking for more.I don’t know what else we are supposed to do,” said pensioner Satroula Noutsou, who joined a rowdy group of protesters, singing slogans as one demonstrator banged a drum.“Tsipras is one of us, a regular person. And there are some people who don’t like that.”___9:05 p.m.European Union President Donald Tusk has warned the Greek people that a “no” vote in the referendum won’t give their government more leverage to seek a better deal with Greece’s creditors.Tusk said a news conference in Brussels that “every government has a right to hold a referendum, therefore we respect the Greek decision.” ___6:15 p.m.The Greek association of pharmacies has issued a statement assuring Greeks there are no drug shortages, in an effort to stem concerns on the first day of capital controls.The Hellenic Association of Pharmaceutical Companies says there was the same adequacy of medication supplies as before a bank run began over the weekend.

He is urging Greece to “come back to the table.”Kenny says Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is making an unreasonable demand on other EU members to extend the existing Tuesday deadline for repayment of international loans. He says this would require votes in many parliaments, and Tsipras was wrong to unveil referendum plans only a few days before the deadline.___7 p.m.Cyprus’ president has sent a letter to Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras saying he supports his request for an extension of a few days to the country’s bailout.The bailout expires Tuesday, and Tsipras asked for it to be extended so Greece can hold a referendum on creditor reform demands on Sunday.The letter by Nicos Anastasiades, which was released by Greek officials, says Cyprus “not only supports but actually considers an extension necessary” for the bailout.Anastasiades points out that Cyprus has already supported to extensions to the bailout, one in December and one in February.Tsipras earlier requested an extension from eurozone country leaders, after finance ministers rejected a similar request on Saturday. Juncker countered by saying “I’d like to ask the Greek people to vote ‘yes.’”“I very much like the Greeks, and I’d say to them ‘You should not commit suicide because you are afraid of death.

BuiltforRent Homes Regaining Market Share

first_imgBuilt-for-Rent Homes Regaining Market Share Share Build for Rent Strategy Single-Family Homes single-family rentals 2016-05-20 Seth Welborn May 20, 2016 482 Views center_img in Daily Dose, Headlines, News The market share for single-family homes built for the purpose of renting them out (rather than selling to an owner-occupant) is down from its peak reached in 2013, but in the last few quarters it has been trending upward.The April 2016 New Residential Construction report from HUD and the U.S. Census Bureau released this week, which measures quarterly housing starts and completions by purpose and design, found that single-family built-for-rent homes comprised 4.3 percent of all housing starts during the first quarter. That share is higher than the historical average of 2.8 percent but down from its peak of 5.8 percent which occurred in early 2013.For the last four quarters, single-family homes built-for-rent have totaled about 32,000, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). That number has been on the rise—research from John Burns Real Estate Consulting indicated that approximately 25,000 single-family detached homes were built for renting in all of 2014.Tim Herriage, CEO of Dallas-based 2020 REI Companies, said the build-to-rent strategy is gaining popularity because it is more of a sure thing for investors.“The base of it is truly to have a predictable asset that comes with embedded equity,” said. “Investors are also able to choose components of the home based on its desired use.”Herriage added that because the homes are new, operational expenses, turn times, the cost of repairs and maintenance, and capital expenditures are all lowered through the lifestyle of the investment. In addition, builders select durable materials that can withstand tenant behavior.“With the onset of the Great Recession, the share of built-for-rent homes rose,” said Robert Dietz, Chief Economist and SVP for Economics and Housing Policy for NAHB. “Despite the current elevated market concentration, the total number of single-family starts built-for-rent remains fairly low in terms of the total building market. However, after falling during 2013, the market share has shown signs of gains over the past year.”The 2013 American Community Survey reported that the single-family portion of all rental housing stock in the country was 35 percent, with the built-for-rent share of single-family homes comprising a much smaller percentage. This, according to Dietz, is because single-family homes often transition to rental housing stock as they age. John Burns estimated that approximately 10 percent of single-family detached households (12.7 million out of 120 million) in the country are renting.Click here to view the HUD/Census Bureau complete report.The Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado recently announced the formation of the Single-Family Rental Association (SFRA), a member-led conduit for connection and training in the growing single-family rental market. The SFRA will lead the single-family rental sector in identifying emerging trends, discussing solutions, and formulating best practices. The Association will offer ongoing training and education, networking, and business opportunities, in conjunction with the Five Star Institute’s Second Annual Single-Family Rental Summit on November 1-3, 2016 at the Frisco Conference Center at the Embassy Suites Hotel, Frisco, Texas. Click here to register for this event.Editor’s note: The Five Star Institute is the parent company of MReport and read more
