“When I first spoke with Dimitris Giannakopoulos, he showed me how much we wanted me in his team and I promised him that if I finally decide to stay in Europe, I will do it only for Panathinaikos and for him personally. This thingDuring our last meeting, Pavlos Giannakopoulos was also there and when he spoke with me, I said to myself ‘this is the end, I am joining Panathinaikos’. He is the most historic official in Greece, a man everybody respects and his words were a great honor for me. I feel such respect and admiration for that person, I could not ignore his request.Panathinaikos is one of the most important clubs in Europe and certainly the most successful of the last 20 years. I really wanted to become a part of that great history and it is an amazing honor for me to wear their shirt. We came close in the past, but finally this is the time to make it happen.It is not the time for big talking and future promises, my motive to be successful with Panathinaikos is high and I will do everything in my power to help them reach their season goals. Of course, I will be following exactly the instructions of my new head coach, Argyris Pedoulakis. To be healthy above everything else and we will be OK”, said the 33-year-old former player of Laboral Kutxa.Source: sdnaTweetPinShare0 Shares

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Ebay filed a lawsuit against Amazon Wednesday, saying the online retail giant used eBay’s messaging system to steal its sellers.In the lawsuit, eBay said Amazon representatives signed up for eBay accounts and messaged sellers to get them to sell their goods on Amazon.com, which eBay said violated its user agreement. According to the complaint, Amazon representatives spelled out their email addresses and asked eBay sellers to talk on the phone in order to evade detection.Ebay called it an “orchestrated, co-ordinated, worldwide campaign” to “illegally lure eBay sellers to sell on Amazon.”Seattle-based Amazon declined to comment on the lawsuit.Both eBay and Amazon rely on independent sellers to boost their revenue, but it’s become a big part of Amazon’s growth: Last year, for the first time, more than half the items sold on Amazon were from third-party sellers.Ebay, based in San Jose, California, said it wants Amazon to stop misusing its messaging platform and to pay it an unspecified amount.

To prevent the spread of malaria in south-central Somalia, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is distributing enough mosquito nets to benefit nearly 30,000 households. The agency also delivered ‘Plumpy Doz’ – a peanut paste containing skim milk, sugar, vitamins and minerals – to some 5,000 children between 6-36 months of age in the Wanla Weyne district to prevent malnutrition. For its part, the World Food Programme (WFP) and its local partners have wrapped up a supplementary feeding operation in Gaalkacyo, Galdobog and Jariiban districts for nearly 17,000 under-five children. In northern Somalia, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and other agencies have launched an awareness campaigns for hundreds of people in the port city of Bossaso seeking to make the perilous boat journey across the Gulf of Aden to begin new lives in Yemen. Brochures detailing the dangers of the trip were distributed this week. WFP also delivered 280 metric tonnes of food for more than 19,000 people in northern areas. Escalating violence and a deteriorating humanitarian situation have driven thousands of Somalis from their homes, with many seeking refuge in neighbouring nations. Earlier this week, a WFP compound in Wajiid, in southern Somalia, was attacked by armed gunmen, marking the fourth time that that the world body’s offices in the Horn of Africa nation have been deliberately targeted. The UN has repeatedly called on all parties in Somalia to ensure the safety of humanitarian aid workers, who are tending to the needs of some 3.2 million people, or 40 per cent of the population, made vulnerable by the combined effects of conflict, drought, high food prices and the collapse of the local currency. 21 August 2009The United Nations is continuing its efforts to ameliorate the dire humanitarian situation in Somalia, rushing food and other vital items to the war-wracked Horn of Africa nation.
Addressing the International Relations Committee in Washington, D. C., WFP Executive Director James T. Morris said the crisis was caused by a combination of erratic rainfall, economic decline and government mismanagement.Mr. Morris noted that this crisis was the first in history in which HIV/AIDS played a major role, as the countries most affected by the drought were also at the epicentre of the pandemic.Issuing a similar appeal at this week’s World Food Summit in Rome, Mr. Morris urged the international community to increase its assistance to southern Africa.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, in a new report, voices concern about political tensions and security incidents in Iraq, which have increased in recent months, and calls on all parties to resolve outstanding issues through dialogue.Separately, Mr. Ban and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, António Guterres, today welcomed a generous offer by Albania of humanitarian admission for 210 residents from Camp Hurriya, located near the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.The camp serves as a transit facility for more than 3,000 exiles, most of them members of a group known as the People’s Mojahedeen of Iran, where a process to determine their refugee status is being carried out by the UN refugee agency (UNHCR). An attack on the camp last month left seven people dead and more than 40 injured. “He expects and urges the residents to positively respond to Albania’s offer and to cooperate with UNHCR to relocate in the coming days,” said a statement issued by Mr. Ban’s spokesperson. “The Secretary-General urges other Member States to follow suit and to offer residents a safe relocation outside of Iraq, in light of their need for international protection.”The statement added that Mr. Ban “unequivocally supports” the efforts of his Special Representative for Iraq, Martin Kobler, “to courageously and creatively, in exceptionally difficult circumstances, help resolve this situation.”In his report, Mr. Ban urges those who express support for the residents of Camp Hurriya and the remaining residents of another camp, New Iraq, to stop spreading insults and falsehoods about Mr. Kobler, who heads the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI), and instead help to promote a durable solution. He adds that the significant funds evidently spent on high-profile lobbying could be more usefully utilized to improve aspects of the humanitarian conditions often cited in media and lobbying campaigns. More generally, Mr. Ban writes in the report that the security environment in Iraq remained “volatile and unpredictable” in recent months, fuelled by political and sectarian tensions. He appeals to all parties to intensify their efforts to find solutions to longstanding political, legislative and legal issues through dialogue and in a spirit of compromise and flexibility. The protests that erupted in late December in various parts of the country, as well as the relations between the Iraqi Government and the Kurdistan Regional Government, which deteriorated in late November over the issue of security coordination in the disputed territories, has presented “major challenges” for the Government of Iraq ahead of the upcoming governorate council elections scheduled for 20 April, notes Mr. Ban.He urges the Government of Iraq and the Kurdistan Regional Government to resume dialogue, noting that transparent and accountable sharing of power and resources is essential for ensuring further political stability, economic growth and prosperity for all. “There is no alternative to peaceful coexistence in a united federal Iraq,” he stresses.Commenting on the upcoming elections, Mr. Ban urges the relevant authorities to ensure the fair representation of women and minorities in elected bodies, including by adopting the recommendation of the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) that a 25 per cent quota for women be enshrined in the electoral laws, applicable to all elections.Meanwhile, he continues to have serious concerns about some aspects of the administration of justice in Iraq, including reports of abuse and mistreatment of prisoners and detainees, failure to respect due process and shortcomings in meeting fair trial standards. “I am also concerned by the particular difficulties faced by women who come in contact with the criminal justice system,” he writes. “I urge the Government of Iraq to ensure that due process is fully respected in line with the Constitution, as well as international human rights law obligations, while at the same time ensuring that alleged cases of abuse and mistreatment are thoroughly investigated and that those responsible are held to full account.”He also calls on the Government to investigate the 9 February attack on Camp Hurriya, and to show flexibility in finding a constructive solution for the resolution of the property issue in Camp New Iraq. The residents there, numbering 100, insist that their relocation cannot occur until the issue of movable and immovable property is resolved. He urges the residents to engage on this issue, as well as to engage with the UNHCR resettlement process.
“In the few weeks since the preparation of the report, over 6,000 families from Sirte alone have had to flee their homes to escape on-going clashes and military operations against Da’esh [also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL],” said Martin Kobler, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL).His briefing to the Council provided details on the work of the Mission since 26 February, including information relating to the humanitarian situation, political developments, the military situation, and UNSMIL’s return to Libya.Humanitarian situation Due to the day-to-day hardships of life under ISIL, many civilians are sheltering in schools, universities and public buildings, with the number of displaced persons reaching a staggering 435,000, Mr. Kobler explained. “The capacity of local communities and of aid agencies to host and provide assistance has been stretched to breaking point,” he warned, noting that in May, 1,100 migrants tragically died in the central Mediterranean Sea, with 500 drowning in a single day, among them 40 children. Political developments Stressing that all this is the consequence of the continued lack of State authority in most parts of the country, the UN envoy highlighted that next week marks six months since the December signing of the Libyan Political Agreement . “The signing was the first time that the Libyan people had dared believe again that peace and unity in Libya were attainable,” Mr. Kobler said. “It was the first time they dared hope that guns, which had brought untold suffering and destruction upon their lives, could be finally silenced. Armed with “nothing but the legitimacy bestowed on them by the Libyan Political Agreement,” he recalled how seven courageous members of Libya’s Presidency Council took the “bold step” on 30 March to courageously cross the sea from Tunisia to Tripoli.But Mr. Kobler underlined how it has been almost five months since the Presidency Council submitted a revised proposal for the Government of National Accord cabinet, and Libya is still without a formally endorsed Government: “The implementation of the Libyan Political Agreement has stalled, and it has stalled because some parties to the Agreement have failed to uphold their commitments,” he insisted, adding that given the scale of problems facing Libya’s population, the country must have a functioning government, ministries and bureaucracy. Six point proposal Noting that “there must be clear lines and principles if there is any hope for the Libyan people to exit from the current state that has engulfed their country,” Mr. Kobler proposed the following six points. First, that the Libyan Political Agreement as signed in Skhirat on 17 December and subsequently endorsed by the House of Representatives on 25 January remains the sole legitimate framework for managing the remainder of Libya’s political transition until a permanent constitution is adopted. Second, that the House of Representatives remains the institution to endorse and swear in the Government of National Accord. Third, it is vital that the Presidency Council works in its entirety, with all nine members. Fourth, the Presidency Council will need to move quickly to meet the basic needs of the Libyan people. Fifth, that the Presidency Council is the sole legitimate recipient of international security assistance in its capacity as Supreme Commander of a united Libyan army; and Sixth, averting hostilities between different Libyan security actors involved in the fight against ISIL requires an inclusive interim security architecture, including temporary command and control arrangements for the army. Military situation Turning to the military situation, Mr. Kobler said there was considerable progress over the last days and weeks in the fight against ISIL.“I commend all those who fought against terrorism in all parts of the country, including in Benghazi and Derna. I deplore the deaths of so many brave sons of Libya. Last week I visited Misrata and it its hospital, with it’s wounded. I have seen the resolve and commitment to fight Da’esh first hand,” he said. Urging Libyans not fight against each other, he said they must unite against their common enemy: “The decision of the Presidency Council to establish a joint operations room is a crucial one since Da’esh can only be fought effectively through a unified military structure at the national level that also serves as the cornerstone for the development of a unified Libyan army,” he underlined. UNSMIL’s return to Libya Thanking the Council for its close engagement on Libya and support for a political resolution there, Mr. Kobler stressed the urgent need for UNSMIL to re-establish its presence in Libya. “The establishment of regular UNSMIL flights to Tripoli has facilitated some direct contact with key partners,” he said. However, such intervals of quick engagement are insufficient. It is likely that the request for assistance will increase as government ministries and bureaucracy become functional again.”In conclusion he said it is essential for UNSMIL to be on the ground and ready to meet the immediate needs and priorities of the Libyans.
Greece’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Kotzias and Interior Minister Panos Kouroublis have announced the launch of an initiative, titled Proxenos, that will allow Greeks living abroad to apply for official certificates and documents from the country’s consular services online.Proxenos, which stands for the Greek word for consul, has started operating in pilot mode at the Greek Consulate in Dusseldorf, offering Greeks worldwide the opportunity to get hold of birth, marriage and death certificates, as well as other official documentation from their nearest consulate, accessing central public records databases. Dusseldorf’s feedback during the first week’s trial will help improve the service before it is expanded to other countries.Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias also announced plans to digitise the ministry’s history archive and to update its translation service, cutting time spent searching for paperwork and additional expenses for the state as well as citizens. “This is a jump in the quality of services offered by Greece’s consular services throughout the world, facilitating the lives of Greek expatriates,” Kotzias said during a joint press conference last Friday. “Greeks will be able to receive certificates of birth and marital status online, thus cutting time spent searching for such paperwork in Greece and saving money for the state.”Interior Minister Panos Kouroublis also said that the ministry will complete a program of 15 more database connections during the year. “This connection with the database is the second achieved by the interior ministry, with the first one connecting with a database of the education ministry. “This program will bring the diaspora closer to Greece, by showing the country cares and sends them a message of hope and optimism,” Kouroublis concluded.

Climat : vers une réforme profonde du Giec ?Malmené par plusieurs polémiques concernant ses études et prévisions sur le réchauffement climatique, le Groupe intergouvernemental d’experts sur l’évolution du climat (Giec) a besoin, d’après certains scientifiques qui ont contribué à ses travaux, d’une profonde réforme.Dans une tribune publiée mercredi dans la revue Nature et intitulée “Le Giec, faut-il le révérer, le transformer ou le supprimer ?”, cinq scientifiques exposent plusieurs propositions visant à faire évoluer ce groupe d’experts climatiques mondial. Créé il y a 20 ans sous l’égide de l’ONU, le groupe publie tous les six ou sept ans un rapport, qui sert de base aux négociations internationales sur le changement climatique. En 2007, l’un de ces rapports lui avait valu un prix Nobel de la paix. Mais depuis quelques années et tout particulièrement ces trois derniers mois, le Giec est l’objet de polémiques concernant la pertinence de ses travaux et accusant certains experts de manipulation de données. Peu de temps avant l’ouverture du Sommet de Copenhague, des milliers de mails échangés par des climatologues réputés ont été publiés sur Internet. Certains d’entre eux, pris isolément, pouvaient laisser penser que des données prouvant un ralentissement du réchauffement climatique auraient été masquées.Plus récemment, le Giec a dû reconnaître avoir commis une erreur en prédisant la fonte totale des glaciers de l’Himalaya à l’horizon 2030. D’après Mike Hulme, de l’université d’East Anglia, au Royaume-Uni, ces événements tendent à prouver que la structure et les procédures du Giec sont “périmées”. Il suggère donc de le dissoudre, après la publication de son prochain rapport en 2014, puis de créer trois entités distinctes respectivement chargées des connaissances scientifiques, des impacts régionaux et des réponses politiques possibles.De son côté, Eduardo Zorita du centre de recherche GKSS, en Allemagne, estime que le Giec occupe “un espace flou entre la science et la politique”. Il propose non pas de le supprimer mais de le transformer en une agence indépendante. Et de prendre pour exemple l’Agence internationale de l’énergie atomique.Un autre scientifique, John Christy, de l’université d’Alabama aux États-Unis, préconise un débat ouvert via la création d’une sorte de “Wikipedia-Giec” qui permettrait de refléter au mieux “l’hétérogénéité des points de vue scientifiques”. Quelles que soient leurs idées, tous s’accordent à affirmer que le Giec nécessite une réforme profonde pour “rétablir la confiance” perdue au cours de ces derniers mois. Une perspective que ne semble pas accepter le président du groupe, Rajendra Pachauri. Ce dernier insiste en effet sur l’importance d’un “historique d’évaluations transparentes et objectives sur plus de 21 ans, établies par des dizaines de milliers de scientifiques de tous les coins de la planète”.Le 12 février 2010 à 14:39 • Emmanuel Perrin
The Spanish midfielder has played a key part for AC Milan this season and considering this fact, Tottenham seem to think he would be a precious addition to their squad.Suso has improved quite a bit since he left Liverpool and is now reportedly worth around 50 million euro.According to SportsLens, Suso has signed a new contract with Milan in September last year, which contains a buyout clause worth of 50 million euro.Pochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.Mauricio Pochettino is famous for his ability to develop young talent and it would come as no surprise if Suso would like to join him, considering what would be in for him – he would also be joining the Tottenham Hotspur.However, he might not play as regular as now, due to the fact that competition is fierce at Tottenham and he might struggle to be at the starting squad. Christian Eriksen covers up pretty much all of Tottenham’s midfield needs and this has turned him to a key player for Pochettino and an eventual competition for Suso.

The Ground and First Floors will consist of Administrative Offices, a Conference Room and a Work Area for Guides. The Upper Floor will consist of Sleeping Quarters for the Guides, particularly visiting Guides, thereby cutting down on costs associated with having to find accommodations for visiting Guides.Construction costs will amount to $1.5Million. The Association has already raised almost $800,000. Construction is scheduled to begin within two to three months.Dr. Gail Saunders, Chairperson of the Building Committee of the Bahamas Girl Guide Association said the new Lease Agreement has given the Association and its membership “new life.”“It’s been over twenty years that we have been participating in this particular project,” Dr. Saunders said. “I think it (signing of the new Lease Agreement) has given us new life because sometimes you get to the point where you wonder whether you are going to make it or not, but now we have hope.“I would like to thank you, Mr. Prime Minister, and the Government of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas for so generously granting us this extra land and also offering to help us to bring this long task to a happy conclusion. We have not been sleeping at the wheel as we have raised almost $800,000 towards our construction costs.”Senior officials of the Government of The Bahamas and executives of the Bahamas Girl Guides Association (BGGA) reached what was termed a “mutually agreeable conclusion” on the lease of property located at their Fort Charlotte Headquarters, Wednesday, ending a twenty-year ordeal for Guiding in The Bahamas.Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert A. Minnis, who led the Government delegation at the Lease Signing, also informed Guiding Officials that the Government of The Bahamas will grant all concessions provided by law and public policy to the Association to assist with the construction, and equipping, of the expanded facility.Prime Minister Minis also promised to review – at an appropriate time – the level of subventions provided to the Association. The Lease Agreement was signed by Mrs. Eugenia Cartwright (representing the Government of The Bahamas) and Mrs. Sonia Adderley (representing the Bahamas Girl Guides Association).“This was a longstanding request that took over twenty years to fulfill,” Prime Minister Minnis said. “It took successive governments over two decades to bring this matter to a mutually agreeable conclusion.”Prime Minister Minnis said the Association was offered land on Dolphin Drive in the past, but that it was deemed unsuitable by the Association as there was no access road to the property and that such as move would have separated the Headquarters facilities from its Operations. Related Items: The Prime Minister said the expansion of the national headquarters, will be one of the most exciting and significant developments in the history of Guiding in The Bahamas.“The signing of this Lease Agreement will remove the frustration and uncertainty which you have experienced over the many years. You will be able to confidently move ahead with your plans,” Prime Minister Minnis told Guiding officials Wednesday.Dr. Saunders said construction of a new Headquarters will allow Guiding Officials to meet a number of their objectives.“We have all sorts of things planned (and) the present plot of land is not large enough,” Dr. Saunders said. “We will be able to actually have nights there where they have their campfires without worrying about security and an old building (once the construction is completed).“It’s really for us to state our gratitude for the extra land and the other help that will be forthcoming and hopefully in about a year or two, we will have our new headquarters and the girls and young women of the Bahamas Girl Guides Association can enjoy it,” Dr. Saunders added.Architect, Mr. Alvan Rolle (left) discusses plans for the construction of the new Bahamas Girl Guides Association Headquarters with Prime Minister Dr. the Hon.

Associated PressACRE, Israel (AP) – Orthodox Jewish Israelis, the driving force of the West Bank settlement movement, have begun to turn their attention inward to Israel itself, moving into Arab areas of mixed cities in an attempt to cement the Jewish presence there.Activists say that in recent years, several thousand devout Jews have pushed into rundown Arab areas of Jaffa, Lod, Ramle and Acre, hardscrabble cities divided between Jewish and Arab neighborhoods. Their arrival has threatened to disrupt fragile ethnic relations with construction of religious seminaries and housing developments marketed exclusively to Jews. Parents, stop beating yourself up While the settlements are seen as an obstacle to peace talks and considered illegal by the Palestinians and most of the international community, the current campaign is taking place inside Israel’s borders.Still, the movement of religious, nationalist Jews into the mixed cities is promoted along the same pioneering lines as the original West Bank settlements. The settlers themselves don’t make the distinction between the two sides of the line, claiming it should all belong to Israel.The Israel Land Fund, one of the organizations promoting the move, helps Jews buy property in both Israel and the West Bank with the goal of “ensuring the land of Israel stays in the hands of Jewish people forever.”Its director, Arieh King, said the fund, with the help of a donor who contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars, was instrumental in bringing about 50 families into Jaffa, a mostly Arab town that is now part of Tel Aviv. He would not identify the donor.“There are places in Jaffa where the Islamic Movement and other groups have been radicalized,” King said. “People were afraid to fly the (Israeli) national flag for fear of how the Arabs would react.” Now, he said, Jews feel more comfortable there. Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean Lankri estimated that 200 religious families have moved to Acre in recent years.A similar process is under way in Lod, about halfway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.Religious Jewish activist Aharon Atias said that after he and his wife married, their “first thought” was to move to a West Bank settlement. Then they came to the conclusion that they could transplant the settlement ethos to Atias’ hometown.He undertook to reverse a Jewish flight from his blighted hometown, which is about 25 percent Arab and 75 percent Jewish, by bringing in religious Jews. His project began with two families in the late 1990s, he said.“Now, we’re an empire,” Atias said. He said 400 new religious families have moved in, and six day care centers, three schools, a seminary and a pre-military academy have been built for them. Another three projects for religious Jews are under construction, with about 660 units expected to be populated within the next two years, he said.One development is in an Arab neighborhood, and the other two are in poor, mixed neighborhoods.“We want to prevent Arabs from becoming the majority,” Atias said. “The city of Lod, since 1948, and with God’s help, has been a Jewish city where non-Jews live, and it has to remain that way.” Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix 0 Comments Share “Israel has to act as the state of its citizens,” said Mohammad Darawshe, co-executive director of The Abraham Fund Initiatives, a nonprofit group that promotes co-existence between Jews and Arabs in Israel. “Ethnic preference is clearly inappropriate, violating the principles of democracy.”About 20 percent of Israel’s citizens are Arabs. Most live in Arab towns and villages, with some notable exceptions, especially Haifa, the port city that is Israel’s third-largest.Before Israel’s establishment in 1948, these mixed cities were populated by Arabs. Many fled or were expelled during the two-year war that followed Israel’s creation. Arabs commemorate that as a “catastrophe.”The Jewish move into Arab neighborhoods for ideological reasons echoes the nationalistic fervor of the first Israeli settlers in the West Bank in the late 1960s and early 1970s. They set up trailer camps and squatted in unoccupied houses, determined to hold on to the territory for religious and security reasons.The settler movement has grown into a huge enterprise that, with government backing, has attracted more than 300,000 Israelis into the West Bank. The Israel Land Fund is seeking investors for a $16 million residential, hotel and country club project in the northern port city of Acre, where the mostly Arab Old City has been designated by the United Nations as a World Heritage Site.“As always, the financial rewards are outweighed by the spiritual and ideological benefit of knowing that these projects will make a huge impact in the fight to keep Acre a Jewish city,” the ad for the seafront project says.Acre, a city of about 50,000, is 72 percent Jewish and 28 percent Arab. While relations are generally quiet, Acre was convulsed by bitter ethnic fighting three years ago after an Arab citizen drove through a mostly Jewish neighborhood on the holy day of Yom Kippur, when even secular Jews keep their cars off the streets.The efforts to bring Jews to Acre have won praise from high levels of government. Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom hailed the establishment of a Jewish seminary in Acre last year a measure as “helping to strengthen the trend of Judaizing the Galilee.”“There’s nothing to be ashamed of in that statement,” he said at the time.Acre’s Arab deputy mayor, Adham Jamal, warned that the activists threaten to disrupt a fragile status quo. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Quick workouts for men Top Stories Arab activists bridle at the notion that Jews must dominate.“They’re like a cancer that enters the body and doesn’t leave,” said activist Horia ElSadi, a Lod native, reflecting lingering bitterness over the establishment of a Jewish state. “They want to live alone.

The newcomers “don’t understand the mentality of Jews and Arabs living together,” said Adham, who serves under a Jewish mayor. “Those coming now aren’t coming to live in Acre. They’ve come to kick out Arabs.”Acre’s mayor, Shimon Lankri, insisted there is no policy of “Judaization,” although he said he was sympathetic to a still-unapproved request to build a 100-apartment development for religious Jews in his city.Such projects, where residents might be required to dress modestly and respect the Jewish Sabbath by not driving or blasting loud music, exist in many other communities in Israel.“Do I have a policy that discriminates, that favors Jews? There is no such policy,” Lankri said. “I myself lived in a building with Arabs and Jews for five years.” He maintained that Arab and Jewish residents receive equal services in his city.Arab activists dispute that, saying they face discrimination in Acre and other mixed cities. Arab neighborhoods are often marred by dilapidated buildings and roads, plagued by a shortage of schools and social services.Before the religious Jews started moving into Acre several years ago, Arabs were preoccupied with the lack of equality, said Adham. With the influx of the Jewish religious nationalists, “the main subject has become Arabs and Jews, and that’s dangerous,” he said. “The discourse is now about demographics.” Sponsored Stories Former Arizona Rep.

Phil Savoie/Minden Pictures A new pesticide may be as harmful to bees as the old one By Claire AsherAug 15 2018 3:05 PM Bees around the globe are in trouble and many scientists worry that a common pesticide bears some blame Now scientists have shown that a chemical hailed as a potential replacement has similar harmful effects reducing the number of new queens and males in bumble bee colonies The finding could force farmers to seek alternative solutions to reduce crop damage from insect pests So-called neonicotinoid pesticides protect crops against pests such as aphids by blocking receptors in the insects’ brains—paralyzing and killing them In small doses the pesticides aren’t lethal to larger creatures including mammals birds and even bees But they can wreak havoc on bees’ abilities to navigate find food reproduce and form new colonies That kind of data convinced the European Union to ban the outdoor use of five neonicotinoid pesticides in April; Canada is phasing them out starting today but they’re still used widely in the United States Some insects have developed resistance to neonicotinoids in recent years In the search for an alternative scientists hit on sulfoximine a group of neonicotinoid-related chemicals that act on the same class of receptors in the insect brain but can dodge the enzymes that offer insects some resistance But sulfoximine is starting to court the same controversy as its predecessor: Despite being approved for use in China Canada and Australia a French court last year suspended licensing for two sulfoximine-containing products citing environmental concerns including potential toxic effects on bees To investigate sulfoximine’s effects on bumble bee colonies Harry Siviter a graduate student in behavioral ecology at Royal Holloway University of London and colleagues fed bumble bees sugar laced with sulfoxaflor the first sulfoximine-based pesticide on the market Dosing—one of the most controversial aspects of pesticide studies—was determined from US Environmental Protection Agency data that measured the concentration of the pesticide in nectar collected by bees from cotton flowers sprayed with the chemical After 2 weeks the researchers released their colonies of bees into the field Between 2 and 3 weeks after exposure—the time it takes for bumble bee larvae to reach adulthood—colonies fed the pesticide produced fewer worker bees than control colonies that received only sugar And after 9 weeks exposed colonies produced 54% fewer new queens and males (the only bees that reproduce) they report today in Nature That suggests they write that sulfoximine could have a significant impact on the reproductive success of bumble bee colonies “The body of evidence demonstrating [neonicotinoids’ negative effects] on pollinators … is now overwhelming” says Edward Mitchell an ecologist at the University of Neuchtel in Switzerland who was not involved in the research “This study shows that we can expect the same for sulfoxaflor” But questions remain such as how the exact timing of bee exposure and the kind of application—spraying crops versus coating their seeds—could alter the impact of the pesticide Mitchell says he thinks the new results are a “conservative estimate” of the actual harm from the pesticide Policymakers will need more data before they can come to the same conclusion But the new results could be included as part of licensing risk assessments in the European Union which must take into account the risk to wild pollinators “In terms of policy we can’t know what the implications will be yet” says social insect biologist Elli Leadbeater a co-author at the Royal Holloway University of London Mitchell says the new pesticide “should be treated like just another neonicotinoid unless a strong case can be made that it does not pose the same environmental problems” But invertebrate ecologist Richard Gill of Imperial College London questions whether outright bans are the best solution He suggests that improved scientific understanding of the risks could help develop strategies to minimize negative effects on pollinators rather than forcing farmers to move to understudied replacement compoundsTurkey: Istanbul giants Besiktas on Tuesday lodged an appeal against a ruling by Turkish football authorities to resume a match against city rivals Fenerbahce at the point where it had been abandoned due to crowd trouble Besiktas coach Senol Gunes was hit by a projectile during the first leg Reuters The match a Turkish Cup semi-final second leg at Fenerbahce’s ground on 19 April was abandoned in the 57th minute after Besiktas coach Senol Gunes was hit by an object hurled out of the stands The Turkish Football Federation (TFF) last week ordered the match to resume on Thursday "from the time it stopped" behind closed doors with the scores level But Besiktas maintained they should have been awarded an automatic victory blaming Fenerbahce for the violence and saying their team would not turn up to the resumption Besiktas board member and top legal representative Safak Mahmutyazicioglu told Anadolu news agency the team had lodged an appeal with the TFF offering a new way out of the impasse "If the outcome to the appeal is not in our favour our decision will remain in place and we will not take to the field on May 3" he said Turkish media had reported that the issue had grown to such importance that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had personally contacted Besiktas chairman Fikret Orman urging him to reverse the decision on boycotting the restart of the match However Besiktas issued a statement saying the reports were "totally unfounded" and "lies" If Besiktas do not play Thursday Fenerbahce would be declared the winners by default and automatically go into the final Besiktas supporters many of whom are famously anti-establishment claim an official bias exists against their side although the authorities reject this Adding to the club’s late-season woes Besiktas were on Sunday beaten 2-0 by their other main Istanbul rivals Galatasaray in what may be a mortal blow to their title ambitions Sometime about 400000 years ago humans learned to fully control fire This breakthrough radically changed our diets because we could now cook food but did it transform our culture as well A study of evening campfire conversations by the Ju/’hoan people of Namibia and Botswana (pictured above) suggests that by extending the day fire allowed people to unleash their imaginations and tell stories rather than merely focus on mundane topics Back in the 1970s University of Utah anthropologist Polly Wiessner well known for her work on the social networks of the Ju/’hoan Bushmen (also known as the Kung) took detailed notes on 174 of their day and nighttime conversations At that time the Ju/’hoan still lived as hunter-gatherers although that is no longer the case today; they now live in villages and have taken up farming Wiessner returned in 1998 2005 and 2013 to discuss these old conversations with the Bushmen and get help with translating them As she reports online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences whereas daytime talk was focused almost entirely on economic issues land rights and complaints about other people 81% of the firelight conversation was devoted to telling stories including tales about people from other Ju/’hoan communities Wiessner suggests that campfires allowed human ancestors to expand their minds in a similar way and also solidified social networks “Stories told by firelight put listeners on the same emotional wavelength” she writes in the paper and “elicited understanding trust and sympathy” Wiessner adds that fire still serves that purpose today: “The power of the flame is reproduced in our homes through fireplaces and candles” “As a Church, They should not vote for people who will put them in bondage.
