    Golocal247.com news

    A group of nurses from the Gaza Strip staged a protest in a public square on Wednesday, saying an Israeli travel ban has led the Jerusalem hospital where they worked for many years to fire them. The seven nurses gathered at a public square in Gaza City, wearing lab coats and holding banners that said: “Firing us is a death sentence on our profession and families.” “We never expected that Makassed would dismiss us arbitrarily,” said Baher Lulu, 53, a critical care nurse who said he joined the hospital 30 years ago, when travel from Gaza to Jerusalem did not require Israeli permission.

    Golocal247.com news

    “Israel Said to Be Source of Secret Intelligence Trump Gave to Russians,” said a New York Times headline on May 16, 2017. While this story reads like a spy novel, it was all too real for the United States’ top intelligence and defense partner in the Middle East, Israel.

    Golocal247.com news

    President Donald Trump, a man who is famously particular about his appearance, is fully embracing doing a dad dance to the Village People's “YMCA” as the finale to his rallies in the campaign's closing stretch. Backstage, top staff and campaign aides often join in with the more traditional take, using their bodies to spell out Y-M-C-A to the strains of the cheesy '70s anthem. Trump's rally dance has become a rare moment of levity in an otherwise miserable campaign year marked by a deadly pandemic, an economic recession and racial turmoil.

    Spain became the first country in western Europe to accumulate more than 1 million confirmed COVID-19 infections on Wednesday as the nation of 47 million struggles to contain a resurgence of the virus. The health ministry said that its accumulative case load since the start of the pandemic reached 1,005,295 after reporting 16,973 more cases in the past 24 hours. Experts say that, as in most countries, the real numbers of infections and deaths are probably much higher because insufficient testing, asymptomatic cases and other issues impede authorities from capturing the true scale of the outbreak.

  • A decade after deadly cholera epidemic, Haiti awaits help

    Golocal247.com news

    Ten years after a cholera epidemic swept through Haiti and killed nearly 10,000 people, families of victims still struggle financially and await compensation from the United Nations as many continue to drink from and bathe in a river that became ground zero for the waterborne disease. It was one of the world’s worst outbreaks of the preventable disease in recent history, sickening more than 850,000 people in a country of 11 million that had not reported a cholera outbreak for more than a century. The last confirmed case in Haiti was reported in January 2019, but the epidemic’s aftermath is still felt across much of the country, most acutely in places like Meille, where Haitians remain exposed to unsanitary conditions and are often unable to make up for the loss of income after the main breadwinners of their family died.

    Democratic U.S. presidential hopeful Joe Biden's promised return to diplomacy with OPEC-members Iran and Venezuela could cut a path for a return of their oil exports should he win, but not before many months at least of verifications, talks and deal-making. The timing of a potential resumption of shipments is crucial to world oil markets: U.S. President Donald Trump's unilateral sanctions on the two countries since taking office in 2017 have blocked up to 3 million barrels per day (bpd), or 3% of world supply. Iran has taken the biggest hit, with exports shrinking by around 2 million bpd to around 500,000 bpd.

  • Global democracy at risk from cyberattack 'onslaught': Microsoft president

    Golocal247.com news

    Democracies around the world are under a constant barrage of cyberattacks that must be identified, called out and stopped, Microsoft President Brad Smith told a gathering of security and defence officials on Wednesday. Speaking at the Atlantic Future Forum, Smith named Russia, China, Iran and North Korea as the states most frequently engaged in malicious cyberattacks targeting elections and the domestic politics of other countries. "Five years ago, I think we thought about this principally in terms of attacks on, say, conventional infrastructure or our military capabilities, but today I think it's just become an onslaught on democracy itself."

  • Can't crush this: Beetle armor gives clues to tougher planes

    Golocal247.com news

    It's a beetle that can withstand bird pecks, animal stomps and even being rolled over by a Toyota Camry. “This beetle is super tough," said Purdue University civil engineer Pablo Zavattieri, who was among a group of researchers that ran over the insect with a car as part of a new study. The species — aptly named diabolical ironclad beetle — owes its might to an unusual armor that is layered and pieced together like a jigsaw, according to the study by Zavattieri and his colleagues published in Nature on Wednesday.

  • How might the campaign’s endgame be disrupted? Here are five scenarios, drawn from the history of election polling

    Golocal247.com news

    The storyline of the presidential campaign seems to be solidifying, as polls show Joe Biden maintaining a sizable lead over President Donald J. Trump.But the lead may not be insurmountable, and the election is not over.The history of polling in modern elections suggests that the endgame could yet be altered by a number of disruptive scenarios.None of the following narrative-altering scenarios can be considered a certainty. But only one is rather far-fetched. All are informed by the content of my latest book, “Lost in a Gallup: Polling Failure in U.S. Presidential Elections.”Here are descriptions of five prospective scenarios, in order of possibility. In a bow to even-handedness, a reality check is appended to each of them. 1\. A powerful late October surprise disrupts the campaign trajectoryJarring, out-of-the-blue developments have happened often enough in presidential election campaigns as to be almost expected. Remember James Comey’s announcement 11 days before the 2016 election that the FBI had reopened its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails? It may have shifted enough votes in battleground states to elect Trump. To alter the trajectory in 2020, the October surprise probably would have to be akin to a very public meltdown by Joe Biden – a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier” moment on steroids – that would clearly signal he’s not up to the job. While Biden’s gaffes, exaggerations and garbled comments have been on frequent display during the 2020 campaign, they haven’t been concentrated or dramatic enough to puncture his advantage in preelection polls.Why it won’t happen: Presidential elections may be growing immune to late October surprises, given the popularity of early voting and the advent of extensive mail-in balloting. As such, millions of Americans will have cast ballots for president well before Election Day – tempering the impact of any late October surprise. 2\. Significant polling errors occur in key states, enough for Trump to win an electoral vote majorityIn states such as Wisconsin and Michigan, which were crucial to the outcome in 2016, preelection polls pointed to a clear lead for Hillary Clinton – an advantage that evaporated when votes were counted. Clinton’s polling advantage in Wisconsin, for example, was 6.5 percentage points at campaign’s end; Trump carried the state by less than a point. Such errors are not entirely out of the question in 2020.Why it won’t happen: This scenario essentially is a 2016 replay. If the history of election polling tells us anything, it is not to expect elections, or polling failures, to replicate themselves. Not only that, but considerably more scrutiny is being devoted to polling in battleground states in 2020 than four years ago. Such attention may render this scenario unlikely. 3\. The 1996 scenario materializesThis is a nuanced scenario that recalls Bill Clinton’s 1996 reelection, when he defeated Republican Bob Dole by 8.5 percentage points – a comfortable margin but not the blowout many polls and pollsters had anticipated. At the end of October 1996, veteran California pollster Mervin Field declared Clinton was “heading for as big a win” as Ronald Reagan’s 18-point landslide in 1984, when he carried 49 states.The polls in 1996 didn’t miss on the winner, but some were well off the final margin. For example, the end-of-campaign CBS News survey estimated Clinton’s lead at 18 points, nearly a 10-point miss.Why it won’t happen: Polling failure in presidential elections is rarely duplicated. A rerun of the 1996 scenario depends on Biden holding a double-digit polling lead in the campaign’s final stages – a time when presidential races tend to tighten. Biden’s aggregate lead in national polls, as compiled by the RealClearPolitics website, stood at 8.6 percentage points two weeks before Election Day. 4\. ‘Shy Trump’ voters emerge en masse, decisively so in battleground statesThis theory maintains that because they want to avoid disapproval, some Trump supporters conceal their preferences from pollsters and others. They are reluctant to acknowledge support for such a divisive character. Because they are guarded about their intentions, these undercover supporters skew polling data because they supposedly are so hard to find, or fail to answer candidly when they are interviewed. By turning out in great numbers, the theory goes, “Shy Trump” voters could tip the electoral vote to the president.Why it won’t happen: Such voters probably do not exist in numbers large enough to alter a national election. Assessments by pollsters and polling organizations have suggested as much. Besides, Trump’s outdoor rallies indicate that his supporters aren’t exactly reserved about expressing political preferences. 5\. An epic polling collapse, akin to that of 1948, takes placeThe famous “Dewey defeats Truman” election signaled a stunning and never-since-duplicated breakdown of national election polling. George Gallup and other pollsters confidently predicted President Harry Truman’s loss to Republican Thomas E. Dewey – and their polling set expectations for the country’s press and pundits. Truman won by 4.5 percentage points in the greatest polling embarrassment in U.S. presidential history. Why it won’t happen: Polling since 1948 has become more sophisticated in techniques and more numerous in practitioners. It is almost inconceivable that contemporary election pollsters will be profoundly and uniformly wrong in 2020. While 1948 does offer an intriguing prospective precedent, this is a most improbable scenario.[Get our most insightful politics and election stories.

    In a presidential election year that has thrown the country's divisions into stark relief, Americans can agree on this: Misinformation about government and politics is a major problem. A new survey by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Opinion Research and USAFacts finds that while voters say it’s pretty easy to find accurate information about voting, they have a harder time knowing whether there's any factual basis for the information they're getting from and about the candidates. “The misinformation, it's just blossomed to the point where it's unmanageable," said nurse Liana Price, 34, of Tampa Bay, Florida, who supports Democrat Joe Biden in the contest against President Donald Trump and worries misinformation about the election could sway voters.

  • Worldwide Aviation Fuel Industry to 2025 - Key Drivers, Restraints and Opportunities

    Golocal247.com news

    Dublin, Oct. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Aviation Fuel Market - Forecasts from 2020 to 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. Global aviation fuel market was valued at US$178.560 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.00% over the forecast period to reach a total market size of US$253.261 billion in 2025. Aviation fuel is a type of kerosene-based fuel which is used to operate an aircraft. Aviation fuels reduce the risk of icing or explosion due to high temperature and is primarily used by military aircrafts as well as commercial airlines in order to maximize fuel efficiency while lowering down the operational cost. Growing global travel and tourism industry Booming travel and tourism industry is one of the major drivers of global aviation fuel market. According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), international tourist arrivals grew 5 per cent in 2018, reaching the figure to 1.4 billion which was reached two years ahead of the UNWTO forecast. This high growth in the number of international tourists is significantly driven by a relatively strong global economy with expanding middle class population base in emerging economies, new business models, technological advances, and affordable travel costs and visa facilitation. In conjunction to this, export earnings generated by tourism also increased to US$1.7 trillion in 2018, thus making the sector a true global force for economic growth and development by way of creating more and more employment. With growing number of air travel passengers worldwide, the demand for commercial aircrafts is also rising among different airlines. According to the World Bank Group, the number of air passenger carried globally has surged from 2.787 billion in 2011 to 4.233 billion in 2018. With rising number of aircrafts on duty, the demand for aviation fuel is also escalating which is fuelling the market growth at a substantial rate. New flight routes and heavy flow of investments in new airports worldwide is also a contributing factor to the global aviation fuel market growth. In September 2018, for instance, the Russian government announced its plans to invest US$24 billion on the country's infrastructure including new airports and highways over the next three years. In October 2019, India announced its plans to start with 100 additional airports by 2024 which also include 1,000 new routes connecting smaller villages and towns. The construction of the second airport in Sydney, Australia began in 2018 and is planned to be completed by 2026. Rise in military budget across different countries Rising focus of governments on military sector is another factor that is spurring the growth of aviation fuel market. These continuous increase in military and defense budget is majorly attributed to political tensions among different nations and rising cases of terrorist attacks worldwide. According to the latest report of Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), global military expenditure was totalled to $1,917 billion in 2019 which is the highest level since 1988. Also, the global military burden (global military expenditure as a share of GDP) increased from $243 in 2018 to $249 in 2019. This rise in military expenditure also includes heavy investments in new military aircrafts by different nations. Recently in July 2020, the Government of India has approved Rs. 38,000 crore deal with Russia to purchase MiG-29 fighter jets while upgrading over 50 MiG-29s amid political tensions with China at the Line of Actual Control (LAC). The Pentagon asked for $56.9 billion in the fiscal budget 2021 to be invested in the military's air domain out of which the Defense Department planned to buy 79 F-35 Joint Strike Fighters of worth US$11.4 billion. In November 2019, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Ministry of Defense signed a $618 million contract to purchase 24 of B-250 light-attack aircraft from domestic manufacturer Calidus. Continuous focus on reducing carbon footprint As the global aircraft industry is expanding at a decent pace, competition among aircraft fuel production in all sectors is also getting intense. Stringent regulations regarding sustainability of aviation fuel is further boosting the competition among aviation fuel manufacturers which is also positively impacting the overall growth of the global aviation fuel market. As such, biofuels that can significantly reduce carbon emissions and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) which are still under research and development offers lucrative opportunities for the growth of aviation fuel industry in the near future. Recently in July 2020, the operator of the Gazprom Neft aviation refuelling business, Gazpromneft-Aero, has launched an integrated laboratory information system (LIS) for analysing both qualitative and quantitative characteristics of aviation fuel. Commercial aviation industry is also moving towards sustainable environmental practices and gradually increasing the use of sustainable aviation biofuel (SAF). United Airlines was the first U.S. airline to begin the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for regularly scheduled flights with the departure of United Flight 708 from Los Angeles International Airport. In March 2019, airplane manufacturer Boeing announced that the company will be offering airlines and operators the option of powering their new commercial jet with biofuel for return flights. This initiative of Boeing aims to drive down emissions by up to 80 per cent and protect the environment. Governments across nations are also focusing on the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) which will also offer a great potential for the overall market growth during the next five years. Although SAF is not widely available in Canada at present, continuous rise in demand across the airline industry to reduce its carbon footprint is encouraging the Canadian government to increase its supply. In November 2019, SKyNRG, the Green Aviation Research and Development Network (GARDN), Waterfall Group, and Vancouver Airport Authority launched BioPortYVR project in Canada. This project aims to ramp up the supply of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) in the country. Asia Pacific accounts for a significant share in the global aviation fuel market By geography, the global aviation fuel market has been segmented as major regional markets- North America, South America, Europe, Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Asia Pacific (APAC). North America accounts for a substantial share in the global aviation fuel market owing to the continuous rise in demand for different type of aircrafts including military, commercial, and private. Europe is also a leading aviation fuel market on account of well-established aviation industry coupled with the presence of major aircraft manufacturers in the region. However, Asia Pacific (APAC) is projected to witness a substantial compound annual growth rate during the forecast period. This growth is majorly attributed to the rapidly growing travel and tourism industry across the APAC countries. There has been a rise in investments in the tourism sector by India, China, and South-east Asian economies in the past few years. The number of both international and domestic tourists is continuously rising in this region. Increasing disposable incomes and living standards with hectic work lifestyle is encouraging people to regularly take vacations. Furthermore, increased rate of globalization has also led to a rise in business air travel trips across the region as well as globe. Thus, burgeoning rise in air travel passengers, both international and domestic, is supporting the growth of aviation fuel market in Asia Pacific. Supportive government policies to construct new airports in order to manage this rising influx of tourists is also a driving factor for the growth of this regional market. Severe impact of COVID-19 on global aviation industry The recent pandemic outbreak caused by COVID-19 has negatively impacted almost each and every industry including automotive and construction. However, the global travel and tourism industry has been hit the hardest by this pandemic. The novel coronavirus disease, which broke out in Wuhan, China, in the beginning of 2020, and then continued to spread like a wild fire throughout the globe, pushed governments to impose nationwide lockdowns and close national borders in order to contain the spread of the pandemic. The duration of the pandemic is still uncertain, and since inability of governments to contain the spread can increase the burden of this disease significantly, air travel remains restricted. A steep decline in the number of commercial flights across the globe has been driving down the demand for aviation fuel. Although some airline carriers continue to operate while ensuring compliance to strict guidelines from governments, it is not enough to recoup the slump. Reluctance of people towards air travel, on account of high degree of fear of contracting the disease, is also limiting the number of flights per month. This trend is expected to continue till the time the world has at least one reliable vaccine or cure for the virus.

  • Is China trying to displace US as top global power? Two analysts differ

    Golocal247.com news

    Two prominent China analysts debated on Tuesday whether Beijing is attempting to supplant Washington as the foremost global power.Speaking during a South China Morning Post webinar about the state of multilateralism under US President Donald Trump, Elizabeth Economy, a senior fellow for China studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, countered an assertion by David Firestein, CEO of the George HW Bush Foundation for US-China Relations, that Beijing was primarily seeking "a place at the table that is commensurate with its heft".The prevailing assumption "both in the executive and legislative branches that China seeks to displace the United States and supplant the United States as the world's only superpower ... is a misreading of China's strategic intentions", said Firestein, who spent 18 years as a foreign service officer in the US Department of State.Get the latest insights and analysis from our Global Impact newsletter on the big stories originating in China."I think China wants to do a lot of things, and I think a lot of the things that China wants to do are very problematic for the United States, but I don't think that China aspires to be the United States 2.2, the so-called world's policeman, [with] boots on the ground in 100 countries," he said.Economy pointed to China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) \- a series of rail, road and sea infrastructure projects connecting more than 70 countries in Asia, Europe and Africa - as evidence of President Xi Jinping's "breathtaking" ambition for his country, the world's most populous.The Chinese government is "looking for the rights without the responsibilities of global leadership", said Economy, who is also a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution and author of the 2018 book The Third Revolution: Xi Jinping and the New Chinese State."Xi Jinping has 2,000 pages worth of his speeches collected in three volumes, and if you read through those speeches, the ambition is breathtaking."It deals with unification of China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South China Sea, with transforming the geopolitical strategic landscape through the Belt and Road," she said. "This is training officials in Africa on how to model their internet governance laws after China, and this is ... the level of global governance norms where the ambition is no less than to say that authoritarian states and their values should hold equal weight with democratic states and their universal values."Some BRI projects - funded primarily through loans provided by China's three government policy banks, the large state-owned banks, and sovereign wealth funds such as the Silk Road Fund - have attracted controversy, with accusations that they push developing nations into "debt traps" and give Beijing political leverage around the world.Sri Lanka's Hambantota port, for example, is one of the most controversial BRI developments. Paid for with Chinese money, Colombo was forced to hand over the running of the facility to a Chinese firm in 2017 after it was unable to meet its debt repayments.A Chinese company now runs the Hambantota port in Sri Lanka. Photo: Handout alt=A Chinese company now runs the Hambantota port in Sri Lanka. Photo: HandoutThe webinar panel - which also included Jeremie Waterman, president of the US Chamber of Commerce's China Centre - found agreement on other points.They were in unison in condemning the trade war Trump launched in 2018, pointing out that the US trade deficit with China is now larger than it was before Trump took office, and that there's little evidence that punitive tariffs have brought manufacturing jobs back to the US."What this administration has lacked is an overarching framework for engaging allies to include ... a coherent approach on trade policy or a consistent approach that brings allies together on the most important regulatory issues of concern ... that we have with China," Waterman said.Economy and Waterman also agreed that despite the counterproductive aspects of Trump's unilateralism with regard to China, his administration has made progress in countering the influence of BRI. In particular, Economy lauded Trump's establishment of the US International Development Finance Corporation (DFC), which provides funding and other incentives for private companies to develop infrastructure projects worldwide.Last year, Congress authorised US$60 billion in DFC funding, which is far short of the estimated US$126 billion that China provided for belt and road initiatives in 2018 alone. However, proponents of the US plan argue that supporting projects that private investors want ensures efficiency and stronger market rationale."There has been a subtle shift and focus on our Asian partners, strengthening relations with Vietnam, for example," Economy said. "I think not having the president lead on this type of activity sends a message to other leaders, it makes them unsure about the US commitment."With the Defence Department, State [Department], National Security Council, certainly the top Asia people, who are creating and helping to direct policy, they are all very committed to a multilateral internationalist policy around security and around competition with China," she added. "So I do think that that would continue" if Democratic challenger Joe Biden wins the upcoming presidential election.This article originally appeared in the South China Morning Post (SCMP), the most authoritative voice reporting on China and Asia for more than a century.

  • Pope reverts to mask-less old ways amid growing criticism

    Golocal247.com news

    A day after donning a face mask for the first time during a liturgical service, Pope Francis was back to his mask-less old ways Wednesday despite surging coronavirus infections across Europe and growing criticism of his behavior and the example he is setting. Francis shunned a face mask again during his Wednesday general audience in the Vatican auditorium, and didn't wear one when he greeted a half-dozen mask-less bishops at the end. Only one kept it on, and by the end of his tete-a-tete with Francis, had lowered it under his chin.

  • LTE & 5G for Critical Communications: 2020 – 2030 – Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts

    Golocal247.com news

    For nearly a century, the critical communications industry has relied on narrowband LMR (Land Mobile Radio) networks for mission-critical voice and low-speed data services.New York, Oct. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "LTE & 5G for Critical Communications: 2020 – 2030 – Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p05977193/?utm_source=GNW Over time, these systems have evolved from relatively basic analog radios to digital communications technologies, such as P25 (Project 25) and TETRA, to provide superior voice quality, end-to-end encryption and other advanced features. However, due to their inherent bandwidth and design limitations, even the most sophisticated digital LMR networks are unable to support mobile broadband and data-driven industrial IoT applications that have become vital for public safety, military, utilities, transportation, oil and gas, mining and other segments of the critical communications industry. The 3GPP-defined LTE and 5G NR standards have emerged as the leading candidates to fill this void. Over the last decade, a plethora of dedicated, hybrid commercial-private and MVNO-based 3GPP networks have been deployed to deliver critical communications broadband capabilities – in addition to the use of commercial mobile operator networks – for application scenarios as diverse as PTT group communications, real-time mobile video surveillance, AR/VR (Augmented & Virtual Reality), wirelessly connected robotics, and automation in industrial environments. These networks range from nationwide public safety broadband platforms such as the United States’ FirstNet (First Responder Network), South Korea’s Safe-Net (National Disaster Safety Communications Network) and Britain’s ESN (Emergency Services Network) to regional cellular networks covering the service footprint of utility companies and localized wireless systems in settings such as railroads, airports, maritime ports, oil and gas production facilities, remote mining sites, factories and warehouses. At present, most critical communications user organizations employ LTE and 5G NR as complementary technologies to augment existing voice-centric LMR networks with broadband capabilities. However, with the standardization and commercial availability of MCX (Mission-Critical PTT, Video & Data), IOPS (Isolated Operation for Public Safety), HPUE (High-Power User Equipment) and other 3GPP-defined critical communications features, LTE and 5G NR networks are increasingly gaining recognition as an all-inclusive critical communications platform for the delivery of mobile broadband and industrial IoT capabilities, as well as MCPTT (Mission-Critical PTT) voice functionality comparable to that offered by traditional LMR systems. Despite the economic slowdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic and other challenges, SNS Telecom & IT estimates that global investments in LTE and 5G network infrastructure for critical communications will surpass $3 Billion by the end of 2020. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 13% between 2020 and 2023, eventually accounting for nearly $5 Billion by 2023.

  • Trump administration alters and downplays human rights abuses in reports

    Golocal247.com news

    A report found that the state department assessments were not consistent with the seriousness of situations in other countriesThe Trump administration has omitted or altered vital information about human rights – including torture, reproductive rights and persecution based on sexuality – from its annual assessments of human rights, a new report reveals.The state department’s annual reports have long been relied upon by governments, judges and lawyers – as well as the United Nations – as a “gold standard” of objective information about the human rights situation in countries around the world. The US began compiling these reports in 1976.The Asylum Research Centre conducted a line-by-line analysis and comparison between US state department human rights reports in the last year of the Obama administration and the first three years of the Trump administration.The ARC focused on five countries with serious human rights abuses – Eritrea, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Sudan – to conduct its analysis.It found that sections of the US reports were not consistent with the situation on the ground as documented by other reliable sources of information and had the effect of downplaying the seriousness of the human rights situations in these countries.The principal changes related to women’s rights, civil and political rights, and issues relating to LGBTQ+ people.Reports during the Trump era have also generally been shorter with certain sections removed or renamed.All reports during the Trump administration removed the “Reproductive Rights” section and replaced it with “Coercion in Population Control”, omitting information related to accessing reproductive rights, contraception and pre- and post-natal healthcare.Violence and discrimination against LGBTQ+ people, organisations and activistswas omitted altogether from reports on Iraq, despite well-documented examples of homophobic violence in the country.The Iran reports failed to document the use of prolonged solitary confinement and sexual humiliation as reported methods of torture. They also ignored discrimination and abuse of LGBTQ+ people, even though human rights organisations have documented systematic discrimination and violence against sexual minorities in the country.The Iraq reports no longer mentioned the use of torture in prisons operated in the Kurdistan region of the country.The Pakistan reports failed to mention the end of the moratorium on capital punishment, the execution of individuals who were under the age 18 when they allegedly committed the crime, and women’s inability to access legal representation.The 2019 Eritrea report no longer mentioned widespread sexual violence against women in military training camps that amounted to torture and the forced domestic service of women and girls in training camps that amounted to sexual slavery.The 2019 Sudan report appeared to suggest that human rights abuses – such as arbitrary killings by the security forces, forced disappearances, the detention of peaceful protesters, the failure to properly investigate alleged mistreatment, and traditional legal practices discriminating against women – only took place during the regime of Omar al-Bashir. Other sources have documented their continued occurrence since the veteran dictator was deposed by the army last year.
Liz Williams, co-director of ARC said: “Our research shows that the state department under the Trump administration has excluded human rights issues from its reports which continue to be well documented elsewhere. We are concerned that these omissions have the effect of denying the existence of rights or abuses and may result in certain types of asylum claims being dismissed if the US Department of State reports are relied upon in isolation.”Some individual changes or omissions to these reports during the Trump administration have previously been highlighted but this is the first time a comprehensive analysis has been carried out.ARC expressed concern that the failure to comprehensively document human rights abuses could lead to an inability to hold perpetrators of these abuses to account.The fundamental changes have implications for decisions of governments around the world on foreign policy, aid, diplomatic engagement and refugee rights.In the UK, judges and the Home Office use these reports regularly to inform decisions about whether or not asylum seekers should be granted sanctuary or forcibly returned to their home countries. Information from these reports can make the difference between life or death for some asylum seekers.

  • Brexit trade deal is within reach, says Michel Barnier

    Golocal247.com news

    A Brexit trade deal is “within reach”, Michel Barnier said before offering to meet all of the UK’s conditions to reboot negotiations with Brussels. The chief negotiator said that both the UK and EU would have to compromise to get the agreement done in a conciliatory speech to the European Parliament in the Belgian capital. Mr Barnier said, “We want a deal that will be mutually beneficial to both parties in respect of the autonomy and sovereignty of both sides. A deal reflecting a balanced compromise." He added, “Despite the difficulties we've faced an agreement is within reach. If both sides are willing to work constructively, if both sides are willing to compromise.” The speech was intended to satisfy a British demand that Brussels makes clear it will compromise, as well as the UK, to get a deal before negotiations resume. UK Ministers welcomed Mr Barnier’s recognition of UK sovereignty, as the pound jumped to a one week high against the US dollar. Mr Barnier also repeated his promise that the EU would negotiate “day and night” on all subjects, and on the basis of common legal texts, which were the UK’s other conditions before returning to the negotiating table. The EU has an end of October deadline for the deal to be agreed. That will give time for the agreement to be ratified in the 10 weeks before the end of the year and the Brexit transition period and so avoid no deal. Mr Barnier said, “We will seek the necessary compromises on both sides. In order to do our utmost to reach an agreement, we will do so right up until the last day that it's possible to do so, our doors will always remain open right up until the very end.” Boris Johnson declared he was ready to “embrace” no deal on Friday, and that trade talks were over unless there was a “fundamental change” of approach from the EU. It was not immediately clear if the speech was enough for Britain to return to trade negotiations. Lord Frost, Britain's chief negotiator, is expected to speak to Mr Barnier again by phone today - the third day running they will have spoken - with one Whitehall source saying they were "cautiously optimistic" that negotiations could be back on. Ministers are currently studying the text of Michel Barnier's speech.The British optimism comes from Mr Barnier's public admission that there needs to be "compromise on both sides". It is the crucial concession Number 10 has been looking for since EU leaders called on the UK to “move” on the major sticking points of fishing, the level playing field guarantees and the deal’s enforcement. “It sounds incredibly positive that he’s talking about the sovereignty of the United Kingdom,” UK Business Minister Nadhim Zahawi told Bloomberg television. The Telegraph exclusively reported on Tuesday that Mr Barnier could be in London for negotiations as early as Thursday. A Brussels source added that Mr Barnier could come on Thursday but "it is not confirmed". One senior UK Government source said yesterday ministers were "hoping to hear more from the EU" before the end of this week. A second source said Mr Barnier could be in London on Thursday.

Factors such as increased drone procurement by military forces due to higher defense budgets and mounting interest in circular omni-directional antennas bolster the growth of the global defense drone antenna market.New York, Oct. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Defense Drone Antenna Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by Technology, Type, Frequency, and Application, and Geography" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p05978067/?utm_source=GNW However, signal overlapping issues with linear antennas may hinder the growth of the market. Despite limitations, the soaring R&D to introduce newer variants such as low-weight and 360° multibeam antennas is anticipated to drive the growth of the defense drone antenna market in the near future. Military forces utilize unmanned technologies for purposes such as surveillance, communications, navigation, and signal intelligence.Military forces are continuously seeking advanced technologies with an objective to enhance the capabilities of unmanned vehicles. The linear polarized omnidirectional antennas are among the preferred antenna technologies.However, the preference for circular polarized omnidirectional antennas is rising at an exponential rate. The modern-day military drones need to constantly move or maneuver to gather higher volumes of information; thus, sometimes they need to adopt acrobatic flying.The circular antennas are smaller, which offer added advantage for easy manoeuvrability. In addition to smaller antenna size, the ability to transmit the collected data at 360° is gathering interest of defense forces as well as the defense drone manufacturers. Moreover, the military forces demand exceptional quality of captured data and images among the military forces, and these antennas facilitate the transmission of high-quality images during the drone flight at close proximity of the target. Such benefits of circular omnidirectional antennas are contributing to the defense drone antenna market growth. The defense drone antenna market is segmented into technology, type, frequency, and application.Based on technology, the market is segmented into linear polarized directional antenna, linear polarized omni directional antenna, circular polarized directional antenna, and circular polarized omni directional antenna. In 2019, the linear polarized omni directional antenna segment held the largest share of global defense drone antenna market.Based on type, the defense drone antenna market is divided into lightweight antenna, FPV antenna, telemetry antenna, NLOS antenna, and others. The FPV antenna segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period.In terms of application, the market is segmented into surveillance, navigation, communication, telemetry, and others. The communication segment contributed a substantial share in 2019. The surveillance segment is projected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period. COVID-19 is spreading at a rapid pace across the world, and in April 2020, China, the US, Italy, Spain, Germany, the UK, Iran, and France were among the worst affected countries in terms of reported deaths and confirmed cases.On the defense side, the contractors are better positioned, as they are not expected to feel the adverse impact of COVID-19 in the short- to mid-term. While production is anticipated to slow down for the same reasons as in drone and its related components manufacturing, demand is unlikely to be affected over the next two years since the budget for these projects had been assigned prior to the pandemic and these projects are crucial to national defense.The recovery period of impact of COVID-19 on defense industry is foreseen to be quicker as compared to various other industries. The production of the equipment is expected to start at a slower pace in 2020 and is anticipated to gain pace from 2021 which is further foreseen to positively influence the defense equipment manufacturing including drone antennas.
