Noises detected in Argentine sub search disappoint

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 21:15:06 -0500

(image) Experts ruled out Monday the possibility that noise detected at sea could have come from an Argentine submarine missing with 44 people aboard, in the latest bad news to hit their relatives. "The sound footprint could not correspond to a sub's... it may have been a noise from a living thing," said navy spokesman Enrique Balbi. "The search continues," he added, noting that there are 14 vessels and 10 aircraft scouring area 24 hours a day in the midst of a storm front in the South Atlantic that is expected to ease on Tuesday.

Turkish lira hits record low against dollar

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 09:44:13 -0500

(image) The embattled Turkish lira hit record lows against the dollar on Tuesday as investors took fright over an impending trial in the United States and changes to banking regulations. The Turkish lira lost over one percent in value to trade at 3.97 to the dollar late morning, testing the never-before-reached 4.0 ceiling, before rallying slightly to 3.95 in the early evening. The latest drop followed the delay on Monday of a scheduled trial in the United States of Turkish-Iranian gold trader Reza Zarrab and Mehmet Hakan Atilla, the deputy chief executive of Turkish lender Halkbank, accused of defying US sanctions on Iran.

U.S. warns citizens against risks of travel to Saudi Arabia

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 15:37:15 -0500

(image) The U.S. State Department on Tuesday warned citizens to "consider the risks" when traveling to Saudi Arabia due to militant threats and the threat of ballistic missile attacks on civilians by rebels in Yemen. The warning comes two weeks after U.S.-allied Saudi Arabia said it had shot down a ballistic missile fired by Iran-aligned Houthis from Yemen towards the Saudi capital Riyadh. The missile, which the Houthis said was in response to Saudi-led air strikes on civilians in Yemen, was shot down near Riyadh airport without causing any casualties.

Footage shows African migrants being sold as slaves at auction for as little as £300 each

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 11:18:59 -0500

(image) The Libyan government is to investigate allegations that African migrants are being sold as slaves at auctions. Tens of thousands of migrants, many of them from West Africa but also Bangladesh, Somalia, Sudan and Eritrea, are being held in camps and warehouses on the Libyan coast, hoping to reach Europe. When the warehouses become overcrowded, or if migrants are unable to pay traffickers for the boat journey towards Italy – where many are rescued by NGO-operated vessels – they are sold. The existence of modern-day slave markets has been known for months, with testimony from the International Organisation for Migration and other humanitarian agencies, but last week CNN obtained video footage of one such auction.  In scenes reminiscent of the 19th century, when the slave trade was rife, auctioneers advertised a group of West African migrants as “big strong boys for farm work.” The auctioneers referred to the migrants in Arabic as “merchandise”. The CNN footage showed buyers bidding for the migrants, who were sold off for as little as $400 each. One West African man told the television network: “Sure, I was sold”.  Others recounted how they were beaten by their “owners” as they put to work. Ahmed Metig, the deputy prime minister of the UN-backed Government of National Accord in Tripoli, said the allegations would be investigated. He said he would establish a "commission to investigate these reports in order to apprehend and bring those responsible to justice.” Migrants sit in a detention centre run by the interior ministry of Libya's eastern-based government, in Benghazi Credit: Reuters Alpha Conde, the president of Guinea and chairman of the African Union, where many migrants come from, called for an inquiry and prosecutions relating to what he termed a "despicable trade... from another era". The Senegalese government called the apparent slave market a "blight on the conscience of humanity". The IOM reported the existence of slave markets in April. “The reports of ‘slave markets’ for migrants can be added to a long list of outrages [in Libya],” said Mohammed Abdiker, IOM’s head of operation and emergencies.  “The situation is dire. The more IOM engages inside Libya, the more we learn that it is a vale of tears for all too many migrants.” Migrants who are rescued at sea and brought to Italy have told how they are beaten, tortured and in some cases raped by traffickers in Libya.  Many young women end up as prostitutes on the streets of Italy, with Nigerian girls as young as 13 forced to sell themselves for as little as 10 euros (£8.90) a time, terrified into submission by gang rape and voodoo curses. It is estimated that 80 per cent of Nigerian teenage girls and young women who make it to Italy are forced into the sex trade.

After the shooting, Sobolik took a year off to rest and recover, something that would not have been possible without Red Robin’s Giving Fund ― a charitable donation her colleagues made with every check to support workers during tough times. Between this fund, the free mental health care she received from the Aurora Mental Health Center and help from her family and friends, Sobolik feels grateful for all the support that has helped her cope, but she considers recovery a lifelong process.

This idyllic Swiss village wants to pay you more than £50,000 to move there

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 10:27:00 -0500

If it’s ever been a distant dream of yours to wind up in a tiny and beautiful mountain village, consider this. The Swiss town of Albinen, located in the scenic canton of Valais, wants to pay people 25,000 Swiss francs (£18,900) each to move there. The council will soon be voting on the new initiative, which aims to repopulate a community that has dwindled to just 240 residents, reports The Local. Under the scheme, each new adult resident will be paid the fee, with an additional 10,000 Swiss francs (£7,600) per child. For a family of four, that’s more than £53,000. Most of the previous residents who have left the village have been families with children, according to Swiss news agency ATS, with the last three departures leading to the closure of Albinen’s school. It should be noted, however, that this was never exactly a thriving neighbourhood. Its highest ever number of inhabitants on record was 380, back in 1900. What’s the catch? There are certain conditions attached to the proposed offer. New residents must be under the age of 45, and are required to build or purchase a property to live in full time, not used as a holiday home, worth at least 200,000 Swiss francs (£151,900). You’ll also have to remain in residence there for at least 10 years, or forfeit the fee. Officials hope that Albinen’s flailing economy will benefit from an influx of new homeowners through taxes, building contracts and the purchase of local produce. Switzerland has a high level of immigration from EU countries What does Albinen have to offer? Six square miles of Alpine land makes up the municipality of Albinen, huddled at an altitude of 4,300 ft in the south-west of Switzerland and dwarfed by its surrounding mountains.   Most of Albinen is farmland and forest, with its settled area of buildings and roads accounting for little over three per cent of it. Only 240 residents live here, surrounded by forest and farmland Credit: Wikipedia Commons Xenos There's little going on in the town's centre, save for its narrow cobbled turns, centuries-old houses, a church and a shop. And you’ll need to learn German, the region’s first language.  But hop in the car and it's less than four miles to Leukerbad, home to one of Europe's largest medical wellness, beauty and thermal baths complex. Charlie Chaplin, Tolstoy and Goethe were among those who travelled to the village to bathe in the calcium- and sulphate-rich thermal waters.  Switzerland tours Prefer to live in Italy? This is far from the first time a shrinking town in Europe has offered to pay people to move there, most commonly in Italy. Just last month, the Italian town of Candela in Puglia announced it would hand out up to €2,000 (£1,792) for new residents. They must live permanently in the village, rent a house, and have a salary of at least €7,500 (£6,723). Earlier this year, Italy also said it was giving away 103 of its historic buildings for free, with one catch - all takers will need to commit to transforming the properties into tourist facilities including hotels, restaurants or spas.[...]

Power struggle shakes breakaway republic in eastern Ukraine as armed men seize Luhansk

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 11:31:18 -0500

Armed men seized the capital of a Russia-backed separatist republic in eastern Ukraine amid a power struggle between two top officials.  The takeover of Luhansk on Tuesday followed a decision by Igor Plotnitsky, the head of the breakaway Luhansk People's Republic, to fire interior minister Igor Kornet the night before. Luhansk state television showed masked men with assault rifles and heavy machine guns blocking the entrances of administrative buildings and streets in the centre of Luhansk on Tuesday, reportedly on the orders of the interior ministry. One of them wore the blue uniform the interior ministry's Berkut unit, a police force specialising in putting down riots. The armed men had ignored Plotnitsky's command to leave, Russian independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta reported. A video on Tuesday evening showed what appeared to be dozens of military vehicles entering Luhansk from the direction of the neighbouring Donetsk separatist republic, although a Donetsk official denied it was intervening.

He also claimed that Plotnitsky's chief of staff and the head of the security service had been implicated in a coup attempt last year and arrested on Plotnitsky's orders, along with the general director of the state television company. But Plotnitsky later said in a statement on his website that Kornet had indeed been fired and the actions of interior ministry forces “crossed all acceptable lines”. He said the “attempts of certain people to remain in power” were futile and “will be completely neutralised in the near future”. The outcome of the power struggle remained unclear on Tuesday. Novaya Gazeta reported that the republic's state security ministry, military headquarters and people's militia were “not participating in the conflict between Plotnitsky and Kornet”.  Interior minister Igor Kornet visits a penal colony near Luhansk in 2016. Credit: Alexander Ermochenko/Reuters Separatists seized control of much of the Luhansk and Donetsk regions in April 2014 following the establishment of a pro-Western government in Kiev and Russia's annexation of Crimea. The ensuing conflict between the rebels, who have received military assistance from neighbouring Russia, and government forces has claimed more than 10,000 lives.  A ceasefire agreed in Minsk in 2015 has been regularly violated, and a Ukrainian soldier di[...]
