UN says alarming spike in female suicide bombings in Nigeria

first_img Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober The agency is concerned that children will increasingly be seen as “potential threats,” putting them in danger of retaliation and jeopardizing their return home.A trauma counselor helping some of 700 children and women rescued from captivity by Nigeria’s military last month told The Associated Press he had to have a 4-year-old Boko Haram supporter removed from a refugee camp. He feared for the boy’s life.The child openly boasted that his father would slit people’s throats and said the killing of infidels was the work of God, according to the counselor, who insisted on anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject.—Faul reported from Lagos, Nigeria.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Top Stories 5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center GUBIO, Nigeria (AP) — Children are now being seen as potential threats after an “alarming spike” in suicide bombings by girls and women used by Boko Haram militants in northeastern Nigeria, the U.N. children’s agency said Tuesday.The number of reported suicide attacks has jumped to 27 in the first five months of this year compared to 26 for all of last year, it said.Tuesday’s report came as Gov. Kashim Shettima of Borno state visited the site of the latest Boko Haram attack and surveyed the damage: 37 people killed Sunday, 400 buildings razed including mosques, and 22 vehicles and dozens of motorcycles torched. 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement “I appeal to you not to flee from your homes. We assure you that we are going to rebuild the ancient town of Gubio,” Shettima pleaded.But locals looking at firebomb attacks that left even the earth and trees scorched said hundreds of traumatized residents already have fled to Maiduguri, the Borno state capital 90 kilometers (55 miles) away.A civilian self-defense fighter, Yusuf Modu Gubio, said he killed some insurgents in Sunday’s attack but “to my surprise, they were mostly young boys and teenagers.”It’s not known how many thousands of boys, girls and women have been kidnapped by Boko Haram but new abductions are reported every week. UNICEF said it estimates that 743,000 children have been uprooted by the nearly 6-year-old Islamic uprising, with as many as 10,000 separated from their families in the chaos.It said women and children have carried out three-quarters of all reported Boko Harem suicide bombings — with girls blamed for nine such attacks since July.“Children are not instigating these suicide attacks; they are used intentionally by adults in the most horrific way,” said Jean Gough, UNICEF representative in Nigeria. “They are first and foremost victims — not perpetrators.” Sponsored Stories Comments   Share   How men can have a healthy 2019last_img read more

Record numbers Visit Orlando Pow Wow

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.A <a href=”http://www.etbtravelnews.global/click/1cc19/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://adsvr.etbtravelnews.global/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=222&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=af663c61″ border=”0″ alt=””></a> Touting the tag line “Orlando Makes Me Smile”, Visit Orlando president and CEO Gary Sain announced at Pow Wow last week that the city was 2011’s most visited destination in the U.S.54.3 million people visited Orlando last year, making it the first destination in history to reach over 50 million visitors. This number is expected to increase to 55 million by the end of 2012. International visitors were on the rise as well at 3.79 million with Canada, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Mexico and Columbia providing the highest rates of traffic to the city.“The continued success of Orlando’s tourism industry has been accomplished through aggressive marketing despite global economic challenges, strong collaborations throughout the travel industry including with our theme parks, the airport, airlines and the worldwide travel trade, and the continued development of a one-of-a-kind Orlando holiday experience,” Mr Sain said.  Orlando International Airport is focusing on becoming a model port for the U.S. with enhanced services and programs including increased customer service with designated ambassadors speaking six languages (Arabic, French, German, Portugese, Russian and Spanish), new signage and more efficient processing. “Already this year, Orlando has added flights from British Airways and Monarch in the United Kingdom, Monarch and LAN Airlines from Chile and GOL airline in Brazil,” Mr Sain said. “We will continue to work with airlines around the globe to provide options for travellers to get to Orlando easily and to offer unmatched hospitality to our country upon their arrival.”Whilst Australia does not currently rank as a popular international market for the city, a spokesperson for Visit Orlando told e-Travel Blackboard that they are keeping their eye on the nation for any sign of increased visitation. “Not many Australians are currently travelling to Orlando but we are hoping that this will change in the same way that is has for other cities within the U.S. As soon as it does, then we will look into marketing activities specifically directed to that market.”USD$4 billion is planned on new attractions and hotels in Orlando including the first-of-its-kind ‘Turtle Trek’ and ‘Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin’ at SeaWorld Orlando, ‘Despicable Me’ at Universal Orlando Resort, Art of Animation Resort and Four Seasons Hotel at Walt Disney World Resort and the Fantasyland expansion at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.e-Travel Blackboard flights to Pow Wow proudly sponsored by Hawaiian Airlineslast_img read more

As Unemployment Drops What does it mean for housing

first_img Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the unemployment rate in April fell to 3.9 percent, its lowest in 18 years. However, the job growth itself was lukewarm and below expectations at 164,000, coming off an average monthly gain of 191,000 over the prior 12 months.“The labor market remains strong, but losing momentum,” said Tendayi Kapfidze, Lending Tree Chief Economist, and hourly earnings increasing by just 2.6 percent year over year suggests that “inflation pressures are not building up in the economy,” though “classic economic theory would suggest that wage inflation should accelerate.”There were, however, some positive takeaways related to housing. From a building perspective, Kapfidze stated that “More construction is on the way. Residential construction jobs had another good month and are the highest since 2008 as builders work to add supply given the tight inventory and rising home prices.” A sentiment echoed by Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan in that “for housing, the rebound in construction employment suggests that building will continue its upward grind.”As for household income and home-buyer power, the slight increase in raises “will help potential homeowners,” though “they still lag significantly behind the pace of today’s listing price increases—currently at 8 percent year over year. Either record-setting income growth or more homes for sale is needed to help bring home price growth in line with income fundamentals,” stated Danielle Hale, Realtor.com Chief Economist.First American Chief Economist Mark Fleming was more positive in his assertion that “As economic conditions remain strong and the labor force continues to tighten, it’s reasonable to expect wages to rise faster, which translates to higher household income and house-buying power.”“Overall, our takeaway from the report is that recent economic conditions support a gradual pace of monetary tightening. We are comfortable with our calls of three rate hikes this year amid ongoing shrinking of the Fed’s balance sheet,” concluded Duncan. As Unemployment Drops, What does it mean for housing?

your neck like any halter neck top and can be adjusted (Source: @tatatowels/ Instagram) Top News Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel-starrer ‘500 Days of Summer’ is a hit romantic film but talk about 500 days of heat in real life it’s nothing but horror And ask any woman with slightly heavy breasts they will tell you the hardship of tackling sweaty boobs in hot and humid weather So what exactly is the solution to get rid of underboob sweat Is there any Yes it now exists a towel that covers just your bosom and absorbs all the sweat Called the ‘Ta Ta Towels’ the patented product is widely being described as a “hammock for your boobs” Women across the world have gone euphoric over this quirky and one-of-its-kind product and there are good reasons behind it Its creator Erin Robertson came up with this bizarre solution to a practical female problem from her own experience “I was living in Los Angeles and getting ready to go out on a first date As I got out of the shower and started getting ready I could not stop sweating — not because I was about to go on a first date but because my tiny A/C unit was broken AND it was the beginning of summer” she wrote on the towel’s website After trying various options to combat the sweating she thought “There HAS to be a better way to keep the beads of sweat from dripping down my stomach” And like Robertson many women around the world felt the same and realised this is what they need some even said they need 10 Sure the ‘boob holder’ looks rather unusual — but if you talk about comfort and the purpose it seems on point In fact breastfeeding mothers can’t stop praising it as it solves leakage problems and the company also claims that it is good on sensitive nipples Many breastfeeding moms complain about night-time leakage and how this product might solve the problem like magic Talking to BabyCenter blog Robertson said she has received a lot of positive feedback from nursing mothers as well as pregnant women “Your breasts go through a lot of changes while you’re pregnant (and postpartum) and the Ta-Ta Towel grows with you — and your boobs — to give you support and relief Since the towels are so thin you can get away with wearing one under your shirt or maxi dress As your growing breasts become heavy and sore a constricting bra is the last thing you want to wear” she said Though many are praising the product others have slammed it calling it “ugly” and others calling it “pointless” and until it was advertised they didn’t know that one needs a “towel for under boob sweat” But this could be because not all women face the problem And perhaps that’s the reason why it is available in only from a cup C to a cup H Priced at $45 it has been branded as lounge wear that helps ladies relax at home or basking in the sun Though the brand claims it has gone global it’s still not available for shipping to Asian countries But one thing for which the company must be lauded is showcasing models who do not abide by the popular body standards often seen in beauty and fashion industry The brand chose curvy women to don their product and it’s an unusual sight because models with ‘more than an inch to pinch’ are rarely chosen to for lingerie ads For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsThe five state Assembly elections are more

interesting fallout of these results is the endless controversy that will be created about whether Rahul should stay on as Congress leader in the fight from this moment onwards If he can be damned so

that the alliance between the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which no one thought "would last a week" has now turned into a durable one Speaking at the ‘India Ideas Conclave 2017’ in Goa Drabu said "It is true that it is a very fragile and contentious alliance As Mufti saab (former chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed) used to say it is the North Pole and South Pole coming together But with some degree of maturity displayed by either side it is really working towards the developmental of Jammu and Kashmir" File image of Mufti Sayeed AFP Speaking about the alliance Drabu said that right on day one itself the alliance had issues "But Mufti saab was a confident leader all his life When he started in the 1960s the Congress and any party from the rest of country was looked down upon He (Mufti) ensured through consistent hard work that the Congress becomes an acceptable part of life" the minister said Drabu said that when the PDP was contemplating to form an alliance with the BJP people were asking the party (PDP) why it was not working with the Congress The minister said that the alliance with the BJP was a "bold decision" taken by Mufti "We had contested elections on an anti-BJP plank and yet we decided to have alliance with them (BJP) I happened to work very closely with him at that particular time" he said "All of us told him that it is suicidal and that we won’t be able to step out of the house we will get lynched" Drabu recalled telling the former chief minister "He (Mufti) stuck to it He said the people of India have voted for

back for United (Source: AP) Top News It wasn’t so long ago that Swiss team Basel possessed a reputation for being a scourge of English clubs in European competition Back-to-back victories over Chelsea in the Champions League group stage in 2013 Elimination of Tottenham in the Europa League quarterfinals a season earlier The season before that the famous 2-1 home win over Manchester United that denied England’s biggest club a spot in the Champions League knockout stage No wonder United manager Jose Mourinho sounded a note of caution when Basel was drawn as a group-stage opponent in this season’s Champions League In reality though United the current leader of the Premier League should have little to worry about when it opens group play against the Swiss champion at Old Trafford on Tuesday Basel has started its bid for a ninth straight Swiss league title with as many losses in seven games two as it had all last season when the team finished 17 points clear Fans whistled the players off the field Saturday after a 2-1 home loss to last-place Lausanne It has been a tough start for rookie coach Raphael Wicky who pits his wits against Mourinho in just his ninth senior competitive game The 40-year-old Wicky was an experienced midfielder for Switzerland though his highest coaching level before this season was in UEFA’s youth version of the Champions League Wicky inherited a squad with fewer of the top Swiss prospects Basel has relied upon _ and typically sold quickly to Bundesliga clubs _ in its title-winning run When players like Xherdan Shaqiri Granit Xhaka and Breel Embolo were sold in recent years they were often replaced by shrewd acquisitions like Mohamed Salah who left Basel for Chelsea after his goals beat the current English champion four years ago Now Basel’s best offseason signing is a player who already failed to meet the Premier League’s standards With seven goals in seven league games Dutch forward Ricky van Wolfswinkel might make Norwich fans wonder why he scored just a single goal in their relegation season of 2013-14 A sign that Basel is no longer the force of old _ at least in the eyes of English opponents _ came last season when the team managed by Urs Fischer was swept aside in 2-0 and 4-1 losses to Arsenal in group play United has won three of its first four league games and has been more clinical this season with new striker Romelu Lukaku scoring five goals in five matches in all competitions and midfielders Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan looking more dangerous going forward Anything other than a comfortable win for United would be a surprise on its return to Europe’s top competition after missing out last season United qualified by winning the Europa League “To be humble is to admit the opponent has the same ambition as we have and that the opponent can perfectly come here like they did in the past and give Manchester United a bad taste” Mourinho said in reference to the teams’ last meeting at Old Trafford six years ago when United needed a 90th-minute goal from Ashley Young to escape with a 3-3 draw “But we are strong we are playing well we have good confidence in ourselves” Basel will look to exploit a potential weakness at center back for United with Phil Jones and Eric Bailly _ the starting combination in the Premier League _ both suspended Chris Smalling and offseason signing Victor Lindelof will start instead while Lukaku makes his Champions League debut in the Group A match For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Tahir

either (Source: Express photo by Ravi Kanojia) Related News TheConstitution of India as adopted in 1950 had envisaged independent India as a federal socialist and secular democracy based on the doctrines of equality and liberty The ideals of equality liberty socialism and secularism underlay its provisions from the very beginning but the last two of these were made more conspicuous in 1976 when the preamble to the Constitution was amended to formally declare India a socialist and secular country Our understanding of equality liberty socialism and secularism has however always been different from how the rest of the world understands these ideals The Constitution itself made them somewhat special Provisions mandating the state to protect the cow for the majority community and the kirpan for the Sikh minority were included in its initial version For the purposes of protective discrimination and affirmative action to eliminate backwardness the Constitution specified Scheduled Castes which to begin with were restricted to the majority community But gradually the classification was opened up to include two particular minorities in response to their protests against exclusion The established traditions of the erstwhile princely states of Travancore and Cochin to maintain temples out of the state exchequer were protected at the time of their assimilation into the Indian Union — a special provision to that effect was inserted in the Constitution The Congress party over about half a century of ruling the country made our concepts of socialism secularism equality and liberty more special thanks to its policies and performance In 1968 its government convinced the Supreme Court that the Aligarh Muslim University had not been established by Muslims and hence was not entitled to the benefits accorded by the Constitution to minority educational institutions In 1976 after proclaiming the Emergency to save its government it succeeded in making the majority of a Supreme Court bench agree that depriving political detenus of their constitutional remedies against arbitrary arrest was fine In 1991 it enacted a Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act to protect the shrines of all communities from communal vandalism but felt constrained to keep the 500-year-old Ayodhya mosque out of its ambit In 1993 it set up under foreign pressure a National Human Rights Commission but could not care less about its decisions and recommendations After remaining out of power for eight years when the Congress bounced back in 2004 it ruled in the name of an absolutely honest and sincere head of government but he was allegedly constantly excluded from decision-making exercises During this decade the Congress extended to the largest minority in the country the olive branch of the Sachar committee and made minorities dream of reservation in government jobs and educational institutions by appointing the Ranganath Mishra commission But when these commissions submitted their recommendations the government shied away from implementing them Having failed to contain the corruption growing right under its nose or control the unprecedented price rise the government kept making promises to do better if given another chance People’s patience however cannot be limitless At the end of the unduly long elections the simmering discontent over the sorry state of affairs in society became clear in the astonishing results What had to happen has happened Those who have suffered a crushing defeat are now saying janta ka faisla hamein sweekar hai (the people’s decision is acceptable to us) — as if they have any other choice And those who have won are projecting their landslide victory as the dawn of “good days” The past policies and performance of the victors are justifiably scaring the two largest minority communities of the country To rid the nation of the long dynastic rule that was brimming with all manner of anti-people activities was the need of the hour Seen from that angle the change of guard is a change for the better But if the new rulers are to let the apprehensions of minorities come true the nation would have paid a heavy price for achieving this goal The fact is that the outgoing regime wasn’t a bed of roses for the minorities and the incoming government isn’t likely to unleash a reign of terror on them either In these days of globalisation with the international community watching no government can afford to play out the proverbial tableau of andher nagri chaupat raja The Father of the Nation had once said that the parameter by which to gauge the extent to which a country may be called civilised is how it treats its minorities Let us hope that the new government heeds this advice Let us hope that the concepts of state secularism and people’s equality and liberty which have been rather special to us from the very beginning and have been made even more special by the rulers of the past will not become even more
