Rocket hits outskirts of Israels Eilat resort security

first_imgJERUSALEM- At least one rocket struck the outskirts of Israel’s southern Red Sea resort of Eilat on Monday, a security source told AFP.“At least one rocket was fired at Eilat and they found the remains on the outskirts of the city,” he said, speaking on condition of anonymity, adding the searches were continuing.Neither the police nor the army could confirm rocket fire on the city, although residents had reported hearing several explosions earlier in the evening, a police statement said. The last time the resort city came under attack was in August 2013 when the Israeli army said its Iron Dome anti-missile system had intercepted and destroyed a rocket but did not say where it came from.That attack was claimed by a Gaza-based Salafist group called the Mujahedeen Shura Council, which has previously said its militants in Sinai had staged several rocket attacks on Eilat.Since the ouster of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak in February 2011, Israel’s border with Sinai has seen multiple security incidents, with militants using the lawless peninsula to stage attacks on the Jewish state.The most serious incident was in August 2011, when gunmen infiltrated southern Israel and staged a series of ambushes that killed eight Israelis.last_img read more

Gauge of US economys health rises a steady 01 per cent in

by Paul Wiseman, The Associated Press Posted Jan 23, 2014 8:18 am MDT WASHINGTON – A measure of the economy’s health rose modestly in December, suggesting that growth will remain steady early this year.The Conference Board said Thursday that its index of leading indicators rose 0.1 per cent last month. That’s down from a 1 per cent gain in November, the month after a partial 16-day shutdown of the federal government.The index is designed to signal economic conditions over the next three to six months.The surge in stock prices helped lift the index last month. Worries about upcoming budget battles in Washington could cause businesses and consumers to curb their spending.

UN launches International Year to spotlight role of family farms in reducing

There are an estimated 500 million family farms – those that rely primarily on family members for labour and management – across the developed and developing world, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). These farms produce the food that feeds billions of people, the agency noted in a news release, adding that in many developing countries, family farms represent up to 80 per cent of all farm holdings. “By choosing to celebrate this year, we recognize that family farmers are leading figures in responding to the double urgency the world faces today: improving food security and preserving the natural resources,” FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva stated at the launch, which was held at UN Headquarters in New York. Speaking on behalf of FAO, which is the lead UN agency for the year, the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Food Programme (WFP), he added that it is encouraging to see that family farming is still the main food provider for billions of children, women and men.“But strangely enough, they are among the world’s most vulnerable populations,” he noted. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, in a message delivered at the launch by Assistant Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs Thomas Gass, said that the year calls for commitments from every stakeholder.“Governments can empower family farmers, especially women and youth, by creating policies conducive to equitable and sustainable rural development. Private investors can ensure accountability and social and environmental responsibility throughout the value chain from farm to fork. Too much food is lost after harvest because small-scale producers aren’t able to store, process and transport their goods.“Agricultural research and extension agencies and the knowledge community can tailor appropriate technologies for family farmers, and family farmers’ organizations, cooperatives and civil society as a whole can strengthen their role in promoting dialogue on this important issue,” he added. “Together, let us use this International Year to reposition family farming as a central tool for sustainable development.”During the launch, special ambassadors were designated for the year, including Ibrahim Coulibaly, President of the National Coordination of Peasant Organizations of Mali; Mirna Cunningham of Nicaragua, former Chair of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues; and Gerd Sonnleitner of Germany, President of the European Farmers Association. read more

Amid wave of protests in Iran UN rights chief urges impartial probe

“I am deeply disturbed by reports that more than 20 people, including an 11-year-old boy, have died and hundreds have been arrested during the recent wave of protests in Iran,” said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, in a separate statement that urged the authorities to investigate all deaths and serious injuries that have occurred so far. He said the Iranian authorities must respect the rights of all demonstrators and detainees, including their right to life, and guarantee their safety and security. Calling for thorough, independent and impartial investigations of all acts of violence that have taken place, the UN rights chief said there must be a concerted effort by the authorities “to ensure that all security forces respond in a manner that is proportionate and strictly necessary, and fully in line with international law.”Mr. Zeid stressed that Iranian citizens who take to the streets to express their discontent have a right to be heard, and that the issues they raise should be resolved through dialogue, with full respect for freedom of expression and the right to peaceful assembly. “It is incumbent on the authorities that their actions do not provoke a downward spiral of violence, as occurred in 2009,” he warned. “The authorities must take all steps to ensure that this does not happen again.”The High Commissioner urged the authorities to release from detention any protestors who have been arbitrarily deprived of their liberty, or penalized in any way, for expressing their views and protesting in a peaceful manner. “Peaceful protests must not be criminalized,” he said. “They are a legitimate part of the democratic process.”Meanwhile, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres on Wednesday deplored the loss of life in the wave of protests in Iran and said that further violence must be avoided.A statement issued by a UN spokesperson said the Secretary-General is following with concern recent developments in the Islamic Republic of Iran. “He urges respect for the rights to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression, and that any demonstrations take place in a peaceful manner. Further violence must be avoided,” the statement said. read more

Britains pets enjoying meals fit for a king as organic dog food

The Dumfries House dog show Since 1996, dry and wet dog food manufacturer Judge’s Choice has held the Royal Warrant for the supply of pet food to the Queen.While Judge’s Choice, along with other pet food brands, offers servings of dog food described simply as “lamb” or “chicken and tripe”, Lily’s Kitchen’s offerings include “fishy fish pie with peas”, “an English garden party” and “venison and wild boar terrine”. A spokesman for the company noted that “the market is seeing significant growth in the premium natural pet food market”, saying it was now planning to expand to France, Germany, Italy and Asia.Their experience echoes a country-wide trend, with a study published by Mintel reporting that the total value sales of cat and dog food grew by 13.2 per cent over 2013-18 to an estimated £2.7 billion.“The ongoing premiumisation of pet food has pushed up average prices above inflation, which is expected to continue to prop up value sales going forward,” the report found. Its success reflects a growing trend for British dog owners to treat their pet as one of the family, ensuring they are fed just as carefully as the humans in the house. Henrietta Morrison with her border terrier Lily There was a time when Fido would make do with a bone, some leftovers or – if he was really lucky – a tin of pet food to call his own.But the family dog has developed a taste for the finer things in life, it appears, as Britain’s pets increasingly enjoy food considered fit for a future king.An organic, eco-friendly food firm has been granted a Royal Warrant by the Prince of Wales, as the animals of Clarence House join beloved pets around the country in doggy fine dining.Lily’s Kitchen, which specialises in creating pet food from steamed vegetables and top cuts of meat, was unveiled as the latest proud recipient of a warrant, after the Prince and Duchess of Cornwall used their products to feed rescue dogs Beth and Bluebell for the last five years.After being founded a decade ago in home kitchen, as the owner of border terrier Lily nursed her back to health after illness, the business now boasts a £50m retail brand, with 30 per cent growth in the last year. The Queen with her beloved corgi SusanCredit:Bettman Henrietta Morrison, the company’s founder, said she believed dogs should be considered “part of the family”.“All dogs really deserve proper food, not just the Royal ones,” she said. “We’re absolutely delighted to have that recognition that we’re working to a higher standard”. When Beth and Bluebell were adopted from Battersea Dogs Home by the Duchess of Cornwall, she joked they had “landed on their paws” in their comfortable new lives.  “The humanisation of pet food continues to be a core driver behind NPD (New Product Development), particularly in the snacks and treats segment.“The overarching humanisation trend should support the interest in emerging types of pet food such as high-protein, grain-free and plant-based.”The Royal Family is known its love of dogs, from the Queen’s corgis and dorgis to the Cambridge’s dog Lupo and the Duchess of Sussex’s beagle Guy. Treats include “organic bedtime biscuits”, “eat your greens natural snack bar” and “organic cheese and apple training treats”.Lily’s Kitchen has been providing food to the Royal dogs for five years, applying for a Royal Warrant a year ago and learning this week that they had been successful.The brand is noticeably in line with the Prince’s fundamental beliefs when it comes to food production, extending his penchant for sustainable, organic produce to the family pets.

Not only our current students, who wear their ‘Greekness’ with pride, but our new arrivals from Greece. To have both principals, Debbie Locco, Jean Hellerud and assistant principals Helen Koziaris and Karen Mackay support our programs is also very encouraging. We value their support in every way.” Arnie Ioannidis, an English teacher from South Oakleigh College said: “As an English teacher, I recognize the importance of challenging gifted and motivated students.

The Irene Stroumpas Xantheas Language School in Agios Demetrios, in Athens’ south, hosted an Australia Day event attended by staff, students and their families, along with a representative of the Australian Embassy in Greece. The owner of the school, Irene Stoumpas Xanthes, a Greek Australian originally from Melbourne, says she hosted the event to help her students learn more about Australia. “As a language school owner and teacher, teaching students the culture is as important as the language,” Irene told Neos Kosmos. “My school motto is ‘Language and Beyond’. This year I thought it was imperative and meaningful for my students to learn more things about my home country. That’s why we decided to celebrate Australia Day at my school on the 25th and 26th of January.” Irene Stoumpas Xanthes (C) with two teachers of her language school.To prepare for the event, students at the school, with the help of their teachers, researched information about Australia and prepared various posters about Australian sport, food, the currency, the animals and famous Australians. “We transformed one of our classrooms into an interactive museum. Their work was displayed and the teachers prepared various Australian snacks such as Vegemite sandwiches, sausage rolls and lamingtons for the students to taste.” The two-day event was attended by all 250 students and their parents, along with a representative from the Australian Embassy. “It was a great honour for us when the Australian Embassy in Athens accepted our invitation to visit our school and see the children’s work. Sarah Goodall (deputy head of mission) attended the event representing Ambassador John Griffin, and was amazed at all the work that had been done by the students.” The parents in attendance were all very impressed by their children’s work and labelled the event a big success, while teachers and school-owners from other language schools in Athens also expressed interest in visiting the school’s temporary museum. Irene was also extremely happy with the event, which further reiterated her and her students admiration for Australia. “My students have always loved Australia as there are so many things in my school that are Australian. I have always shared with them stories about my home country. My youngest students, not knowing how far Australia is, have always asked me to organise a school trip to Melbourne. Who knows, maybe one day I will.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

India using chilli sprays stun grenades to stop Rohingya Muslims

first_imgIndian Border Security Force (BSF) soldiers walk across the open border with Bangladesh to attend a flag meeting in West Bengal, India, 20 June, 2015. Photo: ReutersIndia has stepped up security along its largely porous eastern border with Bangladesh and is using “chilli and stun grenades” to block the entry of Rohingya Muslims fleeing from violence in their homeland of Myanmar, officials said on Friday.Border forces in Hindu-majority India, which wants to deport around 40,000 Rohingya already living in the country, citing security risks, have been authorised to use “rude and crude” methods to stop any infiltration attempts.“We don’t want to cause any serious injury or arrest them, but we won’t tolerate Rohingya on Indian soil,” said a senior official with the Border Security Force (BSF) in New Delhi.“We’re using grenades containing chilli spray to stop hundreds of Rohingyas trying to enter India … the situation is tense,” added the official, who declined to be identified as he was not authorised to speak to media.More than 420,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh since 25 Aug, when a coordinated attack by Rohingya insurgents on Myanmar security forces triggered a counteroffensive, killing at least 400 people, mainly militants. The United Nations has called the assault a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.Densely populated Bangladesh is struggling to shelter all the refugees desperate for space to set up shacks, sparking worries in India that the influx could spill into its territory.RPS Jaswal, a deputy inspector general of the BSF patrolling a large part of the border in India’s eastern state of West Bengal, said his troops were told to use both chilli grenades and stun grenades to push back the Rohingya.A chilli grenade makes use of a naturally-occurring compound in chilli powder to cause severe irritation and temporarily immobilise its target.Prime minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist government is growing increasingly hostile towards the Rohingya in India, with home minister Rajnath Singh calling on Thursday for their deportation as illegal migrants.Seeking to get legal clearance for the deportation plan, the home ministry told the Supreme Court this week it would confidentially provide it with intelligence information showing Rohingya links with Pakistan-based militants.Most of the peaceloving refugees had no link to criminal activity, two Rohingya men protesting against the deportation move told India’s top court on Friday.An official of India’s federal investigations agency said it was seeking help from Muslim religious leaders to step up surveillance of the Rohingya.Police have arrested a suspected al Qaeda member they believe was trying to recruit Rohingya in the country to fight security forces in Myanmar. More than 270 Rohingya have been in Indian jails since 2014.“Our investigations have revealed that Al Qaeda wants to use India and Bangladesh as their base to start a religious war against Myanmar,” said New Delhi police official Pramod Singh Khuswah. “Clearly they are a threat to our security.”last_img read more
