Six women killed Wednesday in Guatemala

first_imgGUATEMALA CITY – Separate acts of violence on Wednesday resulted in the death of six women, including three minors, south of the capital and in the eastern part of the country, Guatemalan police reported.Two girls, aged 6 and 12, appeared with signs of apparent strangulation on a neighborhood street south of Guatemala City.In a nearby area, the body of a woman approximately 35 years old was found shot in the face and gagged with duct tape. Shortly after, another body with signs of violence appeared a few blocks away, the report said.In La Unión, in the department of Zacapa, 205 kilometers east of capital, a mother and her 16-year-old daughter were shot dead outside a school, local fire rescuers said.“Today Guatemala is grieving. We demand prompt clarification of the crimes,” a statement from the Survivor Foundation, a group that denounces violence against women in Guatemala, said.Guatemala faces a wave of violence – mainly related to drug trafficking and gangs – that left more than 5,000 dead in 2012, one of the highest murder rates in Latin America, according to official figures.According to police data, 700 women die violently each year in that country.

Flag dispute sparks divisions mistrust in Syria opposition

first_img BEIRUT (AP) — The divisions and mistrust that have long plagued Syria’s rebellion against President Bashar Assad erupted once more on Tuesday — this time over the flag.The dispute was sparked by a press conference in Istanbul by the Syrian National Coalition, the main opposition group in exile, when its leader Khaled Khoja decided not to display the flag that for the past four years many have adopted as the symbol of their revolt against Assad — a green, white and black flag with three red stars in the center. “There was no intended denial or offense to any Syrian flag. But I am afraid there are some who want to obstruct any national act that aims to unite and save Syria from collapsing,” he wrote.The opposition Orient TV lashed out at Hussein, accusing him of being a latent regime supporter who, as an Alawite, incites sectarianism and is trying to co-opt the opposition. “He is (daring to) correct Khoja, correct even the revolution,” the broadcaster said.Khoja later tweeted that “the revolution flag” is a source of pride to him. “I look to the day that all forces and factions of the revolution adopt it.”Copyright © The Associated Press.

Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Comments   Share   The difference between men and women when it comes to pain Parents, stop beating yourself up Top Stories But the flag controversy overshadowed the diplomacy.The flag adopted by many in the opposition was first used by Syria when it became a republic during the French colonial mandate in 1930 and when the French left and full independence was gained in 1946. It was replaced by the current flag in 1958, when Syria was briefly unified with Egypt in the United Arab Republic.The Local Coordination Committees said the “independence flag” represents “a new era of democracy, freedom and dignity” and a break with Assad’s era. It added that it was used to wrap many of those killed in the civil war.But just as Syria’s civil war has taken on bitter sectarian overtones, so have the flags. Syria’s rebels are largely from its Sunni Muslim majority. Assad is a member of the member of the Alawite religious minority, which strongly backs his rule as do other minorities, fearing a Sunni takeover. To them, the official flag is a symbol less of Assad’s ruling Baath Party than of secular nationalism.In a post on his Facebook page after the outrage, Hussein said he had proposed that both flags be raised at the conference to ensure the opposition is inclusive, even of allies who are “silent or afraid.” But since no official flag was available in Istanbul, neither was put on display, he said. Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Sponsored Stories He did so at the request of Louay Hussein, an opposition figure who only recently left Syria into exile. Hussein argued that just displaying the flag would be divisive. He said either the official Syrian flag — which is red, white and black with two green stars in the center — should also be shown at the gathering or neither should. Many in the opposition consider the official flag to be the symbol of Assad’s rule, a claim Hussein countered.“It is not the flag of the regime. We shouldn’t throw it to the regime,” Hussein said during the conference Monday, standing next to Khoja.Activists vented their outrage at Khoja for agreeing to the request and denounced Hussein.“We find in it an unforgivable insult to the revolution,” the Local Coordination Committees, an anti-Assad activist group, said in a statement. It compared Khoja’s decision to the way Assad supporters tromp on the flag — or the way Islamic extremists tear it apart. Militants reject both flags, flying a black banner instead.The press conference was held to announce that the National Coalition and Hussein’s political party will not attend low-level consultations hosted by the U.N. envoy in Geneva in hopes of restarting peace talks.

Finland picks populist EUskeptic as new foreign minister

Don Shooter shows health improvement Comments   Share   Quick workouts for men Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Sipila said the main task of the next government is to revive the ailing economy in the midst of a three-year recession. That will involve “huge and painful measures,” including savings and structural reforms amounting to 10 billion euros ($11 billion), with welfare cuts of 4 billion euros by 2019, he said.Timo Soini, the outspoken chairman of the Finns Party that came second in the April 17 vote, has been known for voicing strong opposition to bailouts and advocating the ouster of Greece from the eurozone, but appeared to tone down the rhetoric Wednesday.“Finland will promote international stability, peace, democracy, human rights, the rule of law and equality,” he told reporters, adding that the Nordic countries, EU and NATO will “form the framework for Finland’s international cooperation.”Sipila said the three men had agreed on the coalition’s policy lines and now it was up to their parties to approve the package before he forms the government in the coming days.The 54-year-old self-effacing former businessman, who entered politics four years ago, faces a delicate balancing act between Stubb’s staunchly pro-European conservative National Coalition Party and Soini’s anti-establishment party that could demand anti-EU policies and smaller welfare cuts.

Kurdish fighters in Syria on the march against IS militants

first_img Comments   Share   Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility “Warplanes are not enough to liberate a region, but without the air force it will be more difficult,” said Haj Mansour. “The push won’t be as easy and fast.”The Kurds are now closing in on Tel Abyad with fighters moving east from Kobani and west from Hassakeh — an offensive that, if successful, would open a direct line between Kurdish-controlled territory along the border with Turkey.Such a move is likely to anger Turkey, which sees the YPG as part of the Kurdish PKK movement that has waged an anti-government insurgency in southeastern Turkey.“Tel Abyad is going to be the next target. We want to strangle Daesh,” said Nawaf Khalil, a Kurdish official who currently heads the Europe-based Center for Kurdish Studies, using an Arabic acronym for IS.The latest village to fall was Mabrouka on Tuesday, bringing the Kurdish force closer to Tel Abyad. The fighting has killed 532 Islamic State militants, the YPG said.The Kurds are backed by Arab tribesmen, Assyrian Christian gunmen and members of the rebel faction known as Burkan al-Furat — Arabic for the “Volcano of the Euphrates.”U.S.-led coalition airstrikes have concentrated on areas around Kobani and Hassakeh, only rarely hitting Raqqa or other Islamic State-held areas in the Aleppo countryside. “The YPG is quite ideological, while the Syrian and Iraqi army aren’t very well motivated,” van Wilgenburg added.The Iraqi military has struggled to make gains after its humiliating defeats last year, when it virtually crumbled in the face of the militant onslaught in northern Iraq. Poor training, corruption and sectarian politics have all been cited as reasons for the military’s shortcomings. The U.S. spent billions of dollars training Iraqi forces from 2003 to 2011, but much of that training did not reach the foot soldiers battling the Islamic State group today.Last week, U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter criticized the Iraqi army following the fall of Ramadi, the strategic capital of the country’s largest Sunni province of Anbar, saying the Iraqi military lacked the “will to fight.”Within days, IS fighters had also dealt a major blow to Assad’s forces in Syria, seizing the historic city of Palmyra, a major crossroads linking the capital, Damascus, with territory to the east and west. In images reminiscent of the Iraqi defeat in Ramadi, Syrian soldiers fled the city, leaving behind tanks and ammunition.By contrast, Syria’s Kurds have shown remarkable cohesiveness. Spurred by ideology and nationalistic fervor, they fought ferociously to claw back territory after Islamic State militants captured the Kurdish town of Kobani and dozens of surrounding villages last fall. The IS descent on Kobani led the U.S. to widen its air campaign from Iraq into Syria to assist the Kurds. Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology But in mid-May activists said the U.S.-led coalition dropped leaflets on Raqqa with this warning in Arabic: “We killed many of your commanders and fighters. We can carry out raids against you anytime and anywhere, and you don’t have the power to stop us and we will not stop.”“There is no doubt that the liberation of Tel Abyad, will be the pass for the liberation of Raqqa,” said Idriss Naasan, a Kurdish official in Kobani.The Islamic State group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, indicated as much in an audio message released earlier this month.“The battle of Raqqa will come before the battle of Mosul,” he said, referring to the Islamic State’s stronghold in Iraq, which Iraqi forces have been preparing a major offensive to try to retake.___Associated Press writer Vivian Salama in Baghdad contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. BEIRUT (AP) — In contrast to the Iraqi army’s failures, Kurdish fighters in Syria are on the march against the Islamic State group, capturing towns and villages in an oil-rich swath of the country’s northeast under the cover of U.S.-led airstrikes.As the Kurds close in on Tel Abyad, a major commercial center on the Turkish border, their advance highlights the decisive importance of combining airstrikes with the presence of a cohesive and motivated ally on the ground — so clearly absent in Iraq. Despite the fact that IS had heavy weapons and far more fighters, the Kurds resisted the offensive on Kobani, conducting fierce street battles until the U.S. air-dropped weapons and intensified the airstrikes.In January, the YPG liberated Kobani from the Islamic State militants and began a wide offensive in which they regained much of the territory they had lost.On May 6, the Kurdish fighters and their allies launched an offensive from the northeastern province of Hassakeh and in less than three weeks captured the strategic Abdul-Aziz Mountain along with 221 Kurdish and Christian villages that were held by IS.The mountain had been a key militant base for sending vehicles rigged with explosives into Kurdish areas, said Ghalia Nehme, a member of the Kurdish Women’s Protection Units.“The airstrikes were a major help for the fast advance,” Nehme said, adding that 425 square miles (1,100 square kilometers) were taken from IS over the past three weeks alone.Nasser Haj Mansour, a defense official in Syria’s Kurdish region, said the YPG is in close contact with the U.S.-led coalition and sometimes asks for airstrikes targeting IS positions after its fighters locate them.

(The Kurdish fighters of the People’s Protection Units via AP) In Syria, a country now split mostly between al-Qaida-style militants and forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, the U.S. has found a reliable partner in the country’s main Kurdish fighting force, known as the YPG. They are moderate, mostly secular fighters, driven by revolutionary fervor and deep conviction in their cause.Since the beginning of May, they have wrested back more than 200 Kurdish and Christian towns in northeastern Syria, as well as strategic mountains seized earlier by IS. Along the way, they have picked up ammunition, weapons and vehicles left behind by Islamic State fighters.The push has gotten them closer to Tel Abyad, a major avenue for commerce for the extremist group through which it smuggles foreign fighters and sells black-market oil to help fund its conquests. The city is also a key link between Turkey and the northern Syrian city of Raqqa, the Islamic State group’s de-facto capital in its self-declared caliphate.“The YPG doesn’t lack a will to fight, like soldiers in the Syrian army, or soldiers in the Iraqi army who mostly fight for a salary,” said Wladimir van Wilgenburg, a Middle East analyst at the Jamestown Foundation in Washington. “The YPG is much more motivated than other forces in the region, and doesn’t lack cohesion and doesn’t have coordination problems.” Former Arizona Rep.

Business as usual at SAfrican lion park after fatal attack

Don Shooter shows health improvement JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Despite a fatal lion attack the previous day, business ran pretty much as usual on Tuesday at the Lion Park north of Johannesburg, and visitors were driving through with all their windows rolled up.An American woman — still unidentified — was killed by a lioness Monday when the animal attacked her through a car window. The car’s windows were open, contrary to park rules, park management said. Scott Simpson, assistant operations manager at the Lion Park, said Tuesday that it is “operating as usual” except the area where the attack occurred has been closed off. At the entrance, tour guides and private operators shepherded dozens of visitors into the park, driving minibus taxis and safari vans covered in wire mesh.He said the park was investigating the attack.The driver of the car, believed to be a local tour operator, remained hospitalized for injuries suffered when he tried to get the lion off his passenger.The attacking lioness will not be euthanized, but will be moved to another property owned by the park away from tourists, said Simpson.Tumelo Tshoeu, who lives in South Africa’s capital Pretoria, surprised his girlfriend with a trip to the park for her birthday.“I didn’t want to come,” said Idah Mabula, saying she was fearful after hearing about the fatal attack, but felt at ease once she was on the tour.“As long as you follow the instructions, I think you’ll be OK,” said Tshoeu.Signs tell visitors to keep their windows up.

Minister in court over delay in Mackenzie venue demolition

first_imgInterior Minister Constantinos Petrides will appear at the Larnaca district court on Friday to provide explanations as to why the court ruling to demolish an event venue near Mackenzie beach has been ignored.A court order was issued in January 2016, ordering the government to vacate the Ktima Makenzy venue and remove any buildings that have been constructed since the interior ministry, as the guardian of Turkish Cypriot properties, leased the land to a private individual in 2010. Previously, the court had ruled that the land had to be handed over to its Turkish Cypriot owner, a British citizen.A demolition order for the Ktima Makenzy venue is also expected to be issued on Thursday by the Larnaca municipality.The procedure for issuing a demolition order, which would have under normal circumstances taken several weeks or months and which includes a study evaluating the impact of the demolition on residents of the area, was expedited in view of securing the order prior to Petrides’ appearance in court.A tender for the carrying out of the demolition is expected to be endorsed between February 25-27, while the demolition should begin at the end of February or early March.The property dispute was launched after Raymond Riza, the son and heir of Fikret Ali Riza who died in the UK in June 2000, filed a lawsuit against the state and the guardian of Turkish Cypriot properties.Fikret Ali Riza owned the land in the parish of Skala and was born in Larnaca on February 2, 1926. He emigrated to London in 1951 where he lived until his death.The property was registered to his son in August 2005. Raymond was born in 1955 and has lived in London since. Like Raymond, Fikret was also a British passport holder.Raymond sued the state and the guardian, demanding some €958,000 in damages for loss of use between 1975 and 2012, as well as general damages for violating his right to property.The property in question had been requisitioned, like all properties left behind by Turkish Cypriots in the aftermath of the Turkish invasion in July 1974.In 1991, it came under the control of the guardian of Turkish Cypriot properties (interior ministry), whose task is to protect the properties until an agreement was reached by the two sides.The state argued that the property had been taken over based on the law of necessity – passed in 1964 to ensure the smooth running of the state after the Turkish Cypriots left their posts in the government and legislature – and public interest.It also argued that the owner and his heirs could not exercise their rights, without permission from the guardian, as long as the division continued.It was also claimed that the guardian does not even have the right or authority to return the property before the division ended.However, the court ruled that “the case in question does not concern Turkish Cypriot property”, but a “property that was registered and occupied by a British national”.The court said the case was no different and should not be treated differently from one concerning a Greek Cypriot or other national “who found out that their property in Cyprus was requisitioned for a certain period and the Republic and the guardian assumed possession and control … because it was wrongly deemed Turkish Cypriot”.The court ordered the defendants to vacate the property and remove any constructions.It also banned them and any third parties from entering, occupying, and using the property. The orders were suspended for five months to give the defendants time to comply.It also awarded damages worth around €75,000 added to which were varying levels of interest depending on specific time periods and changing rental values.On January 17, the state took control of the property and carried out an eviction of the man who leased the property and constructed the Ktima Makenzy venue.Later in January, the court extended the deadline for the removal of buildings in view of allowing time for the two parties to come to an agreement, but they failed to do so.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoHepatitis C Treatments I Search AdsResearch About Hepatitis C – The Early Signs Of Hepatitis CHepatitis C Treatments I Search AdsUndoDr. Marty3 Warning Signs Your Dog Is Crying For HelpDr. MartyUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

on October 24 1966 to be precise — when the domed General Assembly building inside the United Nations (UN) headquarters located on the east side of midtown Manhattan resonated with a host of guttural and intense alapanas krithis and pallavis many of which were interspersed with the bhakti bhava in the voice of one of India’s best-known musicians Madurai Shanmukhavadivu Subbulakshmi Accompanied by Radha Vishwanathan and Vijaya Rajendran on vocal support VV Subramaniam on the violin TK Murthy on the mridangam and TH Vinayakaram on the ghatam 59-year-old Subbulakshmi with the nasal twang in place wasn’t just crooning some of the finest pieces of music in her mellifluous voice She was creating history by becoming the first Indian to represent one of the oldest musical cultures in the world perform at the UN on the United Nations Day and set the future of classical Indian music at a global level Now 50 years later the UN is paying a tribute to the legend by organising a photo exhibition just outside the General Assembly Hall The exhibition which also marks Subbulakshmi’s birth centenary on September 16 and also comprises the iconic picture of her singing at the UN has been curated in collaboration with India’s Permanent Mission to the UN and Sankara Nethralaya Dr DD Badrinath’s non-profit ophthalmic care to which Subbulakshmi continued to donate from her concert revenues “I had been reading about this being MS Subbulakshmi’s centenary year and that she performed at the UN 50 years ago When I dug deep I found out that she was supposed to perform in 1965 and couldn’t because of the India-Pakistan war It finally happened in 1966 So it seemed like an interesting time to pay this tribute all of which culminated over six months of discussion with the concerned authorities” said Syed Akbaruddin Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Permanent Representative Permanent Mission of India to the UN Oscar-winning musician AR Rahman’s performance at the same venue on August 15 this year was also a part of the initiative The UN Postal Administration will also issue a stamp to mark Subbulakshmi’s birth centenary The photo exhibition currently on at the General Assembly Hall foyer with the tall UN building on the side comprises an array of archival photos of the legendary artiste sourced from Sankar Nethralaya There is a picture of her looking into the abyss

Minister Indira Gandhi Sometime in 1947 just a few months after the Independence freedom fighter film producer and journalist Kalki Sadasivam received a call from the Kasturba Foundation requesting his wife to sing Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite bhajan Hari Tum Haro and send the recording to Delhi But the woman in question Subbulakshmi or “the nightingale of India” (a titled given to her by Sarojini Naidu) didn’t know the piece To make sure there was no injustice to the bhajan she pleaded unfamiliarity and requested the foundation to use someone else’s voice A prompt call came from Gandhi soon who said “I should prefer to hear it spoken by Subbulakshmi than sung by others” She promptly recorded the bhajan and sent the recording A few months later she heard the same bhajan play in her voice at All India Radio post the announcement of Gandhi’s assassination and was overcome with emotion A black-and-white photograph of Subbulakshmi and Sadasivam sitting at the feet of Mahatma Gandhi and attending a prayer meeting which shows the revered association of Gandhi and Subbulakshmi is one of the main photos at the exhibition The exhibition is on till August 19 and will travel to India later

free lunch?that isit is an inexpensive alternative to higher taxeshas no real costs and helps the poor But setting a national minimum wage for India has real costs Onean academic review of more than 100 major academic studies on minimum wages says that 85 per cent of them find a negative effect on jobs for young and low-skilled workers Two100 per cent of net job creation since 1991 has happened informally and artificially higher minimum wages will increase informal employment Threehigher inflationbecause most companies in India will pass on any above productivity wage increases to customers Fourlower skill developmentbecause we have not figured out how to fund skill development for informal employment Fivea single national rate is more vulnerable to trade union capture And sixreduced competition between states for jobs The last point is critical because it is an unfortunate accident of history that labour is a concurrent legislative subject It should be a state subject because policy must do all it can to foster competition between chief ministers Taking away the minimum wage decision from state governments goes in the wrong direction The single national minimum wage rate demand must be rejected just like the demand for minimum wages in the MNREGS was The MNREGS already distorts the labour market for unskilled work because its wage levels act like the LIBOR rate used to price loans a benchmark for unskilled wages that employers are forced to price off And just like the manipulation of LIBOR led to massive mispricingthe wholesale manipulations of wages in India by the MNREGS have greatly distorted the incentivesavailabilityand redeployment of labour Not to mention that a 100-day job under the MNREGS violates more than 20 labour laws (PFESIetc)does not create productive assetsand does not create skills Aruna Roy resigned from the NAC on the MNREGS minimum wage issue I hope she understands that most employers agree that the objective of economic reforms is

productivity increase (20 people now produce the same GDP that 100 people used to produce in 1990) has combined with a massive migration to non-farm employment (640 million since 1978) to produce the most effective minimum wage legislation the world has ever seen India cannot raise minimum wages without increasing manufacturing employment stuck at 12 per cent of total employment since 1991 The limits of service sector growth are amply demonstrated by the kind of jobs taken by many of our 12 million engineers produced every year Increasing manufacturing jobs needs many things hard infrastructurelabour law reformand a tighter coupling of education and employment but minimum wage fudging is not going to help It is baffling that the rhetoric in the last election largely ignored unemployment and unemployability The only explanation involves paraphrasing Stalin: a single unemployed person is a tragedy but millions of unemployed are just a statistic 2014 is the first general election where first-time voters will have no memory of pre-reform India The rights thought world of the last decade has not delivered and the proposed national minimum wage legislation has nothing do
