The dispute between Equatorial Guinea and Gabon centres on an island which has oil resources. In 2004 both sides agreed to exploit it jointly and continue to work on the border problem.Mr. Annan hosted a mini-summit between President El Hadj Omar Bongo Ondimba of Gabon and President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea in Geneva this morning and said both leaders had “agreed to press ahead with immediate negotiations on the delimitation of their maritime and land borders.”“They showed incredible flexibility, good will and determination to press ahead and resolve this issue in the next few months and definitely before the end of the year,” Mr. Annan told the press after the meeting.“I think it will be important for them to resolve this issue as quickly as possible and it will also be a good message for the continent, a continent wracked by conflicts and tensions, that two leaders come together and resolve their differences very, very peacefully.”The Secretary-General also said that both sides had agreed that technical teams would meet in Geneva on 15 March to continue the discussions, adding that he intended to meet with the leaders again sometime in the course of next month in Africa to further pursue efforts towards resolving the border issue. read more

In an interview with UN News, Hanan Ashrawi, an Executive Committee Member of the Palestine Liberation Organization, described the deaths and injuries of Palestinians at the Gaza border on Monday as a “massacre”, adding that Palestinians everywhere were one people, who “share the same pain, the same sorrows, the same aspirations, the same hopes”.The veteran peace negotiator and legislator, is at UN Headquarters in New York, to take part in a forum organized by the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People.Following the United States decision to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem this week – and act which she described as “becoming complicit in the occupation” – she said Palestinians “want a new multilateral mechanism; we want a new international engagement.”She said that peace negotiations with Israel since the early 1990s, brokered by the US, had not worked: “The US certainly has joined Israel as a partner in crime. It has joined Israel in violating international law and the resolutions of the Security Council on Jerusalem and so on. So, what we need to do is to bypass these obstacles…and to find a sort of global forum for the solution,” she said.    Asked if a two-state solution with both countries living side-by-side in peace, was still possible, Ms. Ashrawi said: “This is very much in doubt, it’s very questionable. Unless there is the will to engage, to intervene effectively – not just to end settlement activities but to begin to dismantle settlements – Israel will have succeeded in super-imposing Greater Israel on all of historical Palestine.”Asked for her view on calls from senior UN officials for Hamas in Gaza to stop inciting any violence at the border, she said the militant group was being used as a “convenient scapegoat” to deflect blame and accountability away from Israel.“It is not Hamas who is responsible for the killing fields that Israel has carried out in Gaza. The people who are on this march to return; these unarmed civilian protests against the moving of the American embassy…these are expressions of will by the Palestinian people, who are protesting, demonstrating on their own lands”, she said, adding that “they are sending a message not just to Israel but to the rest of the world that we are a people who are alive and we want to live, and we want our freedom and we want our rights. This is not a sort of incitement or instigation by Hamas.” read more

first_imgData Protection Commission to seek enforcement action over government’s refusal to comply with PSC findings The government is challenging the findings of a landmark report into the legality of the card. Share189 Tweet Email2 33 Comments THE DATA PROTECTION Commission has said it plans to proceed with enforcement action following the government’s refusal to comply with recommendations made in a report about the legality of the Public Services Card (PSC).The government is set to appeal the findings of the DPC’s landmark report, which found that there is no lawful basis for a person to be required to get a PSC for anything other than social welfare payments and benefits. The government has yet to publish the report, despite numerous calls to do so. Graham Doyle, the DPC’s Head of Communications, told TheJournal.ie the Commission has declined the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection’s (DEASP) request for a meeting and plans to proceed with enforcement action. “I can confirm that we have this evening responded to the Department and have declined their request for a meeting. We have once again called on the Department to publish the final report immediately in the public interest. Finally, then, in August 2019 the report was finalised and sent to the department. Dixon made three main findings:There’s no lawful basis for a person to be told they must have a Public Services Card to access a State service, except for social welfare and benefits.The DEASP has no lawful basis for keeping documents provided, such as utility bills, for the 3.2 million cards issued so far. That data must now be destroyed.And the department also hasn’t been sufficiently transparent in terms of the personal data it processes in the context of the PSC.Also included in these findings was a direction to the department for a progress report within 21 days (ie tomorrow) on the removal of the PSC as a requirement for non-welfare related services and an implementation plan for the second finding on the retention of documents within six weeks. Although it took several weeks to respond, the government signalled this week that it will be challenging these findings. A joint statement from the DEASP and the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform said: Following very careful consideration of the report and having taken the advice of the Attorney General’s Office, the ministers informed government that they are satisfied that the processing of personal data related to the PSC does in fact have a strong legal basis, the retention of data is lawful and that the information provided to users does satisfy the requirements of transparency.“On this basis the Ministers believe that it would be inappropriate, and potentially unlawful, to withdraw or modify the use of the PSC or the data processes that underpin it as has been requested by the DPC.”With reporting by Órla Ryan Sep 5th 2019, 7:14 PM Thursday 5 Sep 2019, 7:14 PM 05.09.19 Why is the government set for a showdown in court over the findings of the PSC report? Short URL 03.09.19 ‘A mistake government doesn’t need to make’: Refusing to publish PSC report ‘absurd’, activists claimcenter_img Image: DEASP 25,717 Views 16.08.19 No legal basis for mandatory Public Services Card to access State services other than welfare, landmark probe finds https://jrnl.ie/4797429 Image: DEASP By Sean Murray As for next steps, we have informed the Department that due to their stated refusal to accept the findings of our final report we will now proceed to enforcement action.A spokesperson for the DEASP told TheJournal.ie: “The Department has received the correspondence from the DPC this evening and is considering its contents.”Yesterday, Minister Regina Doherty said the government would be challenging the findings of the landmark inquiry in court.Furthermore, she signalled the government would be defying the direction from the DPC and continue to retain the data of people who apply for the PSC.“My legal advice is incredibly strong,” Doherty told RTÉ Radio One’s Morning Ireland, adding that this advice says there is a “clear and unambiguous legal basis” to continue operating the card as has been done up to now.“We believe that we do have legal rights and legislation to underpin exactly what was anticipated,” she said.Months of controversy The Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon began her investigation into the legality of the PSC in October 2017, after months of controversy over the card. The spotlight was put firmly on the PSC back in August 2017, when the Irish Times reported that a woman had her pension cut because she refused to get a card.Over the past three years, TheJournal.ie has also highlighted other cases such as when a woman was asked for an adoption cert when applying for a PSC; another where a woman was asked how long she’d been living with her partner when applying for one; and people even being denied one because they were adopted.Dixon gave the DEASP a draft of the report in August 2018. She told TheJournal.ie last month that the main findings in this draft aren’t significantly different from the main findings in the finished report.In any case, the department sent back its response to the draft in November 2018 addressing what was in the report.  Related Reads Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Flowers came to £323, while a dinner in the leader’s honour had cost £6,600. The state papers, released under the thirty year rule in 2013, show there was considerable tension behind the scenes ahead of preparations for the state banquet. Fitzgerald had decided that he and his wife should choose the wine list – but he took too long, leading to delays in printing the menus. A further problem arose as the dinner began after 30 unexpected guests showed up and had to be accomodated. On a related note, it’s clear the dietary requirements of Mugabe and his wife, Sally, were an important consideration for officials. The couple had very specific requests about everything from cakes and breakfast cereals to jam and non-alcoholic beverages: fruit juice was okay, Ribena was out.    Friday 6 Sep 2019, 1:06 PM Sep 6th 2019, 1:06 PM center_img Acceptable in the 80s: Ireland once regarded Mugabe as a respected statesman and honoured guest The Zimbabwe leader was viewed as a pariah by the West for decades. Things were different in 1983. By Daragh Brophy Apparently Mugabe responded ‘fiercely’ to British High Commissioner… View the documents: Cornflakes and Ribena among foods banned during Mugabe’s 1983 visit to Ireland > It would appear that UK is attempting to use Mugabe’s Irish visit to exert maximum leverage. Elsewhere the 1983 papers show that, compared to previous visits by overseas leaders, security had to be heightened significantly ahead of Mugabe’s arrival. Arrangements “are very much greater” than previous such occasions, one document noted – adding that many threats had been made against Mugabe both “inside and outside  Zimbabwe” due to his policies and leadership.The document adds:The implications of any ‘unfortunate event’ for Ireland’s international reputation do not, I think, need to be spelled out.Mugabe jetted off for a meeting with US President Ronald Reagan immediately after his Irish sojourn. In what was regarded at the time as a bid to restore his reputation in the West it was announced before his US arrival that two of the detained airmen were to be deported from Zimbabwe. The New York Times reported that the two leaders met for a working lunch in the White House. “We didn’t always agree, but have all gained much from hearing your views, Mr Prime Minister,” Reagan told him after a meeting lasting around 90 minutes. Mugabe said that in spite of areas of difference “generally we have looked at issues through the same glasses, one might say”. Back home in Zimbabwe in the years that followed Mugabe cemented his grip on power. In 1988, after a change to the country’s constitution, he became president – a role with vastly expanded powers. In the 1990s he was still being feted by governments in the West. He was even knighted by the Queen during a 1994 state visit to London. “Through your personal commitment to economic reform… your economy seems to be well on the way to recovery and sustainable growth,” the monarch told him at a state reception.  Mugabe is hosted by Bill Clinton in the White House in 1995. Source: AP/PA ImagesThree years later, he was hosted again in Ireland for a two-day visit – holding talks with President Mary Robinson at the Áras and joining Taoiseach John Bruton and invited guests for lunch at Iveagh House. Speaking to The Irish Times, he told of his long-standing Irish links and mentioned a priest who had been his school principal. The priest, he said, had run a strict regime and was known for striking students with a flexible rod. “That is what made us, Irish discipline,” Mugabe told the paper.The list of guests at the lunch shows he was still held in high esteem within the highest echelons of Irish society. Sitting down to dine with Mugabe were former Taoiseach Garret Fitzgerald, senior academics from Trinity and UCD, the Garda Commissioner, the Army Chief of Staff, current ministers and the chairman and editor of the Irish Times.The decline Mugabe’s reputation went off a cliff in the years that followed – beginning at the turn of the millenium when his supporters violently took over white farms in land reforms that were widely condemned.Mugabe slammed Tony Blair – who had been outspoken in his criticism of the farm raids – as a liar and an “arrogant little fellow”. Ramping up his inflammatory rhetoric on western leaders he called then-US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice “that girl born out of the slave ancestry” echoing “her master’s voice”.Tension between Mugabe and the West escalated in 2002 when the veteran leader kicked out European Union election observers ahead of a presidential vote, which was marred by violence and condemned by the US as “fundamentally flawed”.The EU and the US imposed sanctions – including travel bans on Mugabe and his henchmen – for violence, electoral fraud and undermining democracy (some sanctions were later eased, after something of a rapprochement was detected by observers during Mugabe’s final few years in power).  Zimbabwe’s economy had entered a downwards spiral after the land invasions. Mugabe consistently blamed those Western sanctions for the economic collapse, even though they were targeted at him and his inner circle personally, not at the economy.  Zimbabweans living in Dublin march to demand an end to the humanitarian crisis gripping the southern African state, in 2008. Source: PA Archive/PA ImagesZimbabwe suffered the nadir of its economic implosion in 2008 when hyperinflation reached 500 billion per cent and millions fled the country. Mugabe lost that year’s presidential election but won the run-off after his opponent, Morgan Tsvangirai, withdrew citing nationwide attacks against his supporters.In Ireland, as elsewhere in the international community, Mugabe’s reputation was on the floor. Minister for Foreign Affairs Micheál Martin told the Seanad he wished to place on the record of the House “our shared and utter condemnation of that situation and our rejection of the sham re-election of Robert Mugabe after a campaign of violence and other gross abuses that made free and fair elections impossible and forced the withdrawal of Morgan Tsvangirai from the race”. Martin went on to refer to the “reign of terror” being perpetuated by Mugabe, who he said had displayed a “callousness and disregard for human suffering”. The White House lunches, carefully-choreographed state dinners in Dublin and London and the kind words from the Queen were now firmly, permanently, consigned to the past.- Includes reporting from – © AFP 2019 Supporters of Mugabe in the build-up to the 1980 Rhodesian General Election. Source: PA Archive/PA ImagesIT MAY SEEM unthinkable at this remove that Robert Mugabe was once welcomed to Ireland as an honoured guest and toasted at a state reception.  For the last two decades the strongman, whose death was announced this morning, was increasingly viewed as a pariah in the West.Anyone who lived through the years of headlines about rigged elections, farm seizures and human rights abuses may have trouble envisioning a Taoiseach happy to be seen raising a glass alongside the longtime Zanu-PF leader. Mugabe was viewed differently in the early 1980s. He had been hailed for his negotiating skills in the run-up to Zimbabwean independence, and after he took over as prime minister the tone of his early public statements reassured many of his opponents as he called for an end to the enmity between the races. In 1981 he was even nominated for the Nobel prize for his work on the peace settlement that ended the black nationalist guerilla war against white rule in Zimbabwe, but was passed over. Foreign Affairs Minister Brian Lenihan Snr paid tribute to Mugabe’s leadership in the Dáil in May 1981. Mugabe had survived at the helm, at that point, “for more than a year in the difficult initial stage of nationhood”.Lenihan added: “All the indications are that Zimbabwe will survive and will be a nation with a real leadership role within the African community.”Compared to that hopeful, positive statement, Mugabe’s sheen had already begun to wear off by the time he landed for his Irish visit just over two years later.In 1982 he had deployed troops trained by North Korea to crush an insurgency in the Midlands and Matabeleland provinces. Thousands of civilians would be killed over the following years. Irish state papers from 1983 show officials here were agonising over how to handle talks with Mugabe, ahead of his visit.There was particular deliberation over how to deal with the case of six white Zimbabwe Air Force officers detained over the sabotage of 13 planes the previous year, in a case which had made headlines internationally.  The six were acquitted in court weeks before the scheduled Irish visit but they continued to be detained, with no retrial. Throughout the men’s trial it was claimed torture had been used to extract false confessions.  Then-Taoiseach Garret Fitzgerald Source: Rollingnews.ie The question of whether then-Taoiseach Garret Fitzgerald should raise the issue with his honoured guest was further complicated by reports received by the Department of Justice that as many as five of the airmen were entitled to Irish citizenship. The British Embassy had also been in touch on the issue. Notes from officials give an insight into the expected demeanor of the soon-to-arrive guest. Despite reports to the contrary on the international news wires, an official document noted that the Irish government “did not, repeat not, say we would raise this issue”. last_img read more

But fear not, intrepid pedestrian, now there’s a way for you to let that inconsiderate motorist know how you feel about their parking job that doesn’t involve cussing.The urban development and public transportation advocacy organization #MovetePorTuCiudad, along with ChepeCletas and Costa Rica Limpia, picked up a trick from other cities around the world that lets pedestrians and bicyclists hand out “citizen tickets” for bad parking.The tickets, which can be printed here, say in Spanish, “You’ve won a #CitizenTicket for #BadParking.” The idea is to slide them under the windshield wipers of offending vehicles. (Courtesy #MovetePorTuCiudad)Theodoro Mezger, director of #MovetePorTuCiudad, told The Tico Times the tickets, which are not legally binding, are a light-hearted way to raise awareness about alternatives to driving and an outlet for frustrated pedestrians.Mezger said ticket recipients thus far have largely reacted defensively.“When someone gets one of these tickets they usually say it’s because there’s no place to park,” Mezger said. He called bad parking jobs a symptom of wider failings in public transportation options.Mezger said people should consider alternatives to driving a car to reduce congestion and demand on public space for parking, he said.Public shamingThere’s also a social media component to the campaign that Mezger hopes will be more effective than a real ticket from a Transit Police officer. Using the hashtags #ParteCiudadano and #MalParqueado, users are asked to snap a photo and post it to social media to give inconsiderate parkers an extra push.“People would rather get a ticket for ₡100,000 (roughly $200) than get called out on social media networks,” he said.Mezger admitted some people don’t take the idea of getting a fake ticket as lightly as he would like, but he thinks the conversation is worth having.“Some people own cars but we are all pedestrians,” he said. “We have to ask ourselves who runs this city: cars or people?”Check out this example of #MalParqueado: Facebook Commentslast_img read more

first_img Freddie Mac Multi-Indicator Market Index 2014-12-24 Scott_Morgan Freddie Mac’s latest Multi-Indicator Market Index (MiMi) report finds the U.S. market weak but stabilizing at year’s end. The index, released Tuesday, shows that 70 markets are inching upwards, including San Jose and Pittsburgh, which have finally joined the forward momentum.The national MiMi value stands at 74.5, which is up 0.12 percent from September to October and up 0.42 percent over the past three months. Year-over-year, the national housing market has improved 4.48 percent.While still well short of the all-time MiMi high of 122.5, reached in June 2006, the national index is markedly better than it was in September 2011, when the housing market was at 60.3.”When we look at the stability of the housing market we’ve seen a modest 0.5 percent improvement since the beginning of the year in the national index,” said Frank Nothaft, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “Housing markets continue to heal across the country with those hardest hit showing the biggest improvement.”The most improved metro areas month-over-month were Kansas City, Memphis, and Atlanta, each up more than 3 percent. Charlotte and Denver—which also improved more than 12 percent year-over-year—were close behind. Year-over-year, Las Vegas improved by nearly 24 percent, while Chicago, Miami, and Riverside, California, each improved more than 12 percent.Statewise, Colorado, Kentucky, Idaho, Maryland, and North Carolina led month-to-month improvement, each growing by a least 1 percent. Year-over-year Nevada grew 18.95 percent), while Illinois, Florida, Rhode Island, and Colorado each grew by around 10 percent.According to the index, 13 states, plus the District of Columbia, have MiMi values in a stable range (above 80). North Dakota (95.9) the District of Columbia (94.1), Montana (91.2), Wyoming (91.0), and Hawaii (89.2) made up the top five. Eight of the 50 metro areas Freddie tracks, all west of the Mississipi, have MiMi values in a stable range: San Antonio (89.9), Austin (87.0), Houston (85.3), Los Angeles (84.4), and Salt Lake City (83.1) made up the top five.According to Nothaft, the news is encouraging, but hardly a cause for champagne just yet.”Low mortgage rates have helped, but we also need better household income growth,” he said. “The employment picture needs to improve more to strengthen wage growth. The good news is we’re slowly starting to see this happen in areas like Denver, San Jose, Nashville, and Pittsburgh.”Freddie also is seeing better purchase application activity on a monthly basis in these areas, he said.

first_imgDespite the challenges it represents, the staff at Phaneromeni primary school in the heart of old Nicosia are proud of one distinguishing feature: only one of their 47 students is fully Greek Cypriot.“We have children from many countries. Bulgaria, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Afghanistan, India, Syria, Jordan and parents are either both foreign or are in mixed marriages,” the headteacher of Phaneromeni primary school Andri Theocharidou told the Sunday Mail.Although one might expect a culture clash, examples of racism, the mocking of different skin colours or religions, Theocharidou says the school is a testament to how problems are created by adults and not children.“They co-exist very harmoniously. Nothing about their colour, nothing about their heritage. No one says something derogatory to the other. There is a lot of acceptance because they grow up with it and consider it very normal – and it is.”The grand sandstone building was once an all-girls school but now houses a nursery, and a primary and secondary school.With the old city home to many foreign workers and refugees, Phaneromeni has long catered for students from diverse backgrounds. The challenges involved have meant Greek Cypriot parents and many teachers avoid the school, says Theocharidou, who was posted to Phaneromeni school only in February.The stumbling block isn’t even the language. Many of the students were born in Cyprus and those who have moved here recently have extra support in learning Greek.The real hurdle teachers face is sometimes as simple as actually getting the kids to come to school. It’s dealing with circumstances that teachers at other schools would probably never be aware of. In some cases, teaching becomes almost indistinguishable from basic elements of parenting.There are students who cannot shower regularly because there’s no water supply at home, a student who had never seen a toothbrush before and students who might come to Theocharidou’s office and ask for toilet paper.Phaneromeni is one of 89 schools which stays open until 5.30pm to provide help with homework and extra-curriculum activitiesEvery Friday, the secretary of the school picks up any clothes that students might need washing and makes sure they’re back the following week clean and ironed.“We have a classroom full of donated clothes, many of which we the staff bring from our children, that are available for any students,” she said.The notion of proper uniform is mostly ignored. “Some don’t have money for the basics. You won’t insist on grey trousers when you know they can’t pay for them.”Beyond all this though lie the huge emotional needs the children have. It’s difficult to focus solely on education Theocharidou says when you see children who have so obviously taken on the role of the adult.“A seven-year-old child shouldn’t be making a sandwich for its sibling who’s four years old and take it by the hand to bring it to school. On the other hand, the parent says, ‘What should I do? I need to work. Go back to my country? There’s a war’.”These problems that have shaped these children, some from war torn countries, some from broken homes affect their very mannerisms. “They have a lot of insecurities,” she said.“They’re good kids, kids that need care, love, that will come hug you, sit next to you – think of you a little bit as their mum – and this is what you have to give them.”Often times, the children are taken in and out of school when a parent decides to move country but then return. In other cases, it’s not as simple as divorce.“They’re kids that come from broken families. Not necessarily divorced, what’s divorce? Divorced parents are fine, there’s so many divorces and the kids are fine because when parents can keep good relations, there’s no problem.”The problems come when a child is being brought up by a grandmother who is struggling to take care of it or kids who have to be responsible for their younger siblings.“We know that this student last night didn’t get any sleep because his sister – who is a few months old – was crying and he had to get up and feed her because mum was at the restaurant where she works until late.”Andri Theocharidou the headteacher of Phaneromeni primary schoolDespite all this they still have to learn maths, Greek and all lessons the curriculum stipulates they know.“We focus on the core targets of all lessons,” Theocaridou says.“If they’re supposed to learn 20 things, we pick the five most important things.”Phaneromeni is one of the 89 schools currently under an education ministry programme called School and Social Inclusion Actions (DRASE) which aims to deal with problems students most hard hit with poverty have to face.Naturally, this includes but is not exclusive to schools with high concentrations of immigrant students, according to DRASE programme officer Efi Ioannidou.She explained how with 85 per cent funding by the European Social Fund, the programme aims to promote social inclusion, fight against discrimination and offer support to schools, for instance, with a large number of students facing financial or social problems, either coming from families receiving the Guaranteed Minimum Income (GMI), or parents that are unemployed or illiterate.These schools operate until 5:30pm giving students a chance to get help with their homework or do extra-curricular activities such as dance, music, IT or theatre.Centres offering psychosocial support addressing the needs of both parents and students are also available.Additionally, according to Ioannidou, these schools have assistant teachers who can help students during class time.The ministry has hired 630 graduates who are involved in these programmes.Next year, 96 schools will be registered under the programme consisting of 30 pre-schools, 50 primary schools, 15 high schools and lyceums and one technical school.“The schools are selected from data we have compiled together but we found they’re distributed across the country quite evenly. However they are more common in urban areas.”Having the school remain open until later is a huge re-assurance and help, Theocharidou said.“The logic is, instead of having these kids roaming around in the streets at least they’re here. And they’re taught dance, IT, music, help with homework, they eat – breakfast and lunch is free – and we try to face potential delinquency. If they weren’t here, they’d be doing something alone until late at night.”Phaneromeni receives money from the European Social Fund programme which aims to promote social inclusionThese programmes also try to bring parents closer to the school.At Phaneromeni primary school, two mothers have been employed in the kitchen to help with food preparation. When meals are prepared for children, Theocharidou notes, all religious or cultural sensitivities are taken into consideration.“Meals are subsidised by the ministry and the Sophia foundation.”A pilot programme began last year with one Nicosia school where parents are taught Greek, and the aim is to expand it for the new academic year.“We had one department that started off with 20 parents,” Ioannidou told the Sunday Mail.Teachers working in these schools do not get any extra payment or perks, she added.For teachers it is impossible not to get invested in the children’s futures.“There are children here that I worry about. I think what will happen to this child? It’s impossible to keep that distant professional line,” Theocharidou said.“Many times you go in to teach a class and someone says something that’s so significant, something they went through that they want to share that makes you say ‘OK, I won’t do Greek syllables today. Let’s discuss it’.“Someone might say you’re wasting your time – you’re not wasting anything. You win. It’s never a waste when you manage to offer a child security. Tomorrow when you teach syllables they might learn something. What am I supposed to do, take a book, keep teaching and whoever learns? Things aren’t that simple.”Some of the teachers at the school go way beyond what is expected of them. Theocharidou gives the example of one who would take some of the students with her own children to the theatre over the weekend.“The same things she tried to encourage for her own kids, she tried to do for her students.”Ioannidou agrees, recalling her own experience. “One of my students that didn’t know what a bed was. Until the age of six they slept on the floor.”Both women conclude that these children are not simply just their students.“You begin to see them as your own,” Theocharidou says, adding that she keeps in touch with some of her former students.“I’m not concerned with who goes on to higher education. I just want them to be safe and happy and they can contribute the best to their families. “You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

New York real estate mogul Pence is a fairly typical Republican a social and economic conservative who espouses traditional small-government ideas Here’s a closer look at three issues where they differ On abortion In March Trump said he backed “punishment” for women who get abortions if they are banned He later backtracked saying women who get abortions illegally “punish themselves” Trump’s initial statement attracted widespread condemnation including criticism from Pence “Governor Pence does not agree with the statement made by Donald Trump” Pence’s office said in a blunt statement in March “The Governor believes that its important to focus on policies as we advance the sanctity of life on those that are performing the abortions" On free trade A cornerstone of Trump’s campaign has been his assertion that if elected he will make it difficult for foreign manufacturers to compete by placing tariffs on goods made abroad and shipped to the US Last month Trump blasted the Trans-Pacific Partnership in a speech on trade at a campaign stop in Pennsylvania calling the TPP the “greatest danger yet” Pence has been a longtime campaigner for free trade He is opposed to tariffs

fighters who have seized a third of both Iraq and Syria declared war on the West and seek to establish a caliphate in the heart of the Middle EastWritten as an amendment to a stopgap spending bill the measure does not include any money to pay for the arms and training It passed with support from Democrats and Republicans but also significant opposition from members of both partiesVoting for the amendment were 159 Republicans and 114 Democrats while 71 Republicans and 85 Democrats voted againstThe spending bill – including the training plan – will only go to Obama to be signed into law after it passes the Senate expected to come as early as ThursdayFacing resistance from war-weary lawmakers in Obama’s own Democratic party the administration reached across the aisle to Republicans for support a rare bipartisan moment in an otherwise polarized CongressAt an annual picnic for congressional members he hosted on Wednesday night Obama thanked House members from both parties "who came together today to pass an important component of our strategy for dealing with this terrible terrorist organization"A Reuters/Ipsos poll showed that while Americans support Obama’s campaign of air strikes against Islamic State militants they largely oppose a long military campaign against the groupThe authorization backed by the House lasts only until Dec 11 the day the spending bill expires The bill allows the Pentagon to later submit requests to shift funds within the budget if it decides it needs funds to pay for the programThe amendment does not provide details about the training plan
