The widow of South Sudan liberation hero John Garang is calling on government soldiers to forsake President Salva Kiir. Rebecca Nyandeng told VOA's South Sudan in Focus the country's internal conflict benefits mainly the president, who she said is amassing wealth while soldiers go without paychecks. “I am appealing to soldiers of the SPLA not to fight one another, to come back for peace, and leave this senseless war for President Salva,” Nyandeng said Monday. The SPLA, which fought for South Sudan's independence from Sudan, split into pro and anti-government factions at the start of the war in December 2013. Nyandeng said if government solders put down their arms, Salva Kiir “will not be able to stay in power.” According to the United Nations, more than 1.8 million South Sudanese have fled the country since fighting broke out in late 2013. Another 1.

The president also threatened that he will be ten times more brutal than they are in response (this is a man who publicly admitted killing criminal suspects). A month earlier, Reuters released a report referencing a 20-minute video that showed Southeast Asian militants who claimed to be ISIS fighters urging Muslims to unite under Abu Abdullah, the leader of the militant group known as Abu Sayyaf, which is based in the Philippines. As far back as December 2015, the Australian Associated Press reported on another video that showed a terrorist training ground in the Philippines. In the video, the fighters urged Filipinos to travel to Syria to join the ISIS insurgency. Just days ago, in an interview with RT , Russian state-owned media, Duterte claimed the militants currently battling his troops are mostly from the Middle East. If this is true, it marks a stunning admission, indeed, especially considering how it could be possible that these Middle Eastern trained mercenaries have made it into the Philippines without attracting attention from the relevant authorities.

Prada, Armani and Hugo Boss directly source leather bags for men and women from Kolkata exporters, Juneja said. "I supply to Mango and we may too get a call shortly." Juneja said if the supply side dries up, the industry may have to import leather. BANGLADESH MAY BENEFIT Kolkata is a major leather industry hub, accounting for as much as 58% of leather goods exported from the country. There are some 1,500 exporters in the Bengal capital alone. August to December is the critical time for the industry, as 45% of the exports take place during these months. Exporters see Bangladesh benefiting from the ban on cattle slaughter in India. The leather produced in India contains certain type of grains which leather from countries like South America and Africa do not have. "Bangladesh's leather is more akin to that of leather manufactured in India," said Nafis of Zia Hide Skin Agency, who has a factory in Chennai.

Brzezinski’s support for these radical elements led directly to the formation of al-Qaeda, which literally translates to “the base,” as it was the base in which to launch the repulsion of the anticipated Soviet invasion. It also led to the creation of the Taliban , a deadly entity currently deadlocked in an endless battle with NATO forces. Further, despite Brzezinski’s statements, which attempt to depict a lasting defeat of the Russian empire, the truth is that for Brzezinski, the cold war never ended. Though he was a critic of the 2003 invasion of Iraq , Brzezinski’s stranglehold over American foreign policy continued right up until his death. It is no coincidence that in Syria, the Obama administration deployed an Afghanistan-quagmire-type strategy toward another Russian allyAssad in Syria. A cable leaked by Wikileaks dated December 2006authored by William Roebuck, who was chargé d’affaires at the US embassy in Damascus at the timestated : “We believe Bashar’s weaknesses are in how he chooses to react to looming issues, both perceived and real, such as the conflict between economic reform steps (however limited) and entrenched, corrupt forces, the Kurdish question, and the potential threat to the regime from the increasing presence of transiting Islamist extremists.

S., Sergey Kislyak, early last December. Some foreign affairs experts said the move, while former president Barack Obama had weeks left in his term, worried them that it could undermine U.S. security and some opposition Democrats have suggested that Kushner's security clearance should be revoked. Kushner's lawyer has said that he is willing to cooperate with congressional probes of Trump campaign links to Russian officials. One key lawmaker, Senator Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Sunday, "He seems to be a very open person. I'd let him speak for himself when the time is right." Two Trump administration officials, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, both said they saw nothing wrong with Kushner's overture to Moscow. Trump hits back Kushner's connection with the Russia probe was alleged in a Washington Post report while Trump was on a nine-day trip to the Middle East and Europe.

Tinka owns 100% of the concessions. Tinka also has the Colquipucro near surface silver deposit, which is what bought the company into the area in the first place (and where zinc was found beneath the silver) which lies around 2 kilometres north-northwest of zinc discovery. The higher confidence indicated resource stands at 14.3 million ounces of contained silver at 60 g/t silver, while inferred is 13.2mln ounces at 48 g/t. In December last year, Tinka discovered a new zinc prospect at Pucarumi, which lies several kilometres northwest of the inferred zinc resource (18.8mln tonnes grading 8.2% zinc equivalent) and within its existing mining claims in central Peru. High-grade mineralization grading up to 19% zinc and 8% lead occurs in two subparallel horizons at Pucarumi within Cretaceous-age limestones over a strike length of 1.5 kilometres, the firm revealed Rising zinc prices.

twitter. Many talents are quiet of the speaker. Perhaps one of the least is staying power.

Jared Kushner may be a lot of things, but naive is definitely not one of them. Yet, following the Washington Post's story that he suggested in a December meeting with Russia's ambassador Sergey Kislyak that they create a secret communication channel between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin, many openly asked, could Kushner be so naïve? We heard it from pundits to even former FBI and KGB agents.

The Listening Post - Scrubbing the net: The content moderators (Feature) Many social media users assume that content moderation is automated, that when an inappropriate image or video is uploaded to the net a computer removes it – whereas, in reality, there are reportedly more than 150,000 content moderators working today. The job description involves sifting through images, videos and text, assessing whether or not the content contravenes their platform's policies. And the work can take its toll. In December last year, two Microsoft employees sued the company, saying that years of content moderating left them with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It can be unpleasant work, but necessary, and many social media companies based in the west outsource it to places like the Philippines or India. But the question is: do they do that responsibly? Or do they just take advantage of the cheap labour with little consideration for the labourer.

She exited that plan too. In 2013, on the advice of a relative, D’Souza invested Rs 50,000 in timeshare schemes for three years. On maturity in December 2016, she was supposed to get Rs 70,000. However, when she went to claim the amount, she realised the company had shut shop and Sebi was looking into the settlement process. “After these setbacks, I have begun investing only in fixed deposits and traditional insurance plans to save taxes,” she says. How can the risks be overcome? The ignorant investor needs to become financially literate. They should take the help of a financial planner to guide them in achieving their goals and follow the plan diligently. Such investors should not act on market tips and advice from friends and colleagues to make a quick buck. They have to understand their financial goals and requirements, and act accordingly.
