"Europe must do more to help refugees and migrants, dying of cold," according to the UNHCR. As Europe is experiencing some of the lowest temperatures in decades, it is calling on European governments to save refugees, instead of rejecting them. The UN's refugee agency has reported several deaths resulting from the harsh conditions, as migrants try to enter or travel across Europe. Images of migrants queuing for food in snowy Belgrade have made many people recall scenes from WWII. In Greece and Serbia, hundreds of people are living unheated tents or sleeping rough on unofficial sites. Under these conditions, children are particularly prone to respiratory illnesses, says UNICEF. In addition to all this, some refugees and migrants say police have subjected them to violence or that they have had their clothes confiscated. What are the top stories today?

Disabled refugees and migrants are not properly identified in Greece and have poor access to basic services such as toilets, showers, food and medical care, Human Rights Watch said in a report on Wednesday. About 60,000 refugees and migrants live in formal and makeshift camps in Greece and Human Rights Watch said conditions there were “deplorable and volatile.” “People with disabilities are being overlooked in getting basic services, even though they are among the refugees and migrants most at-risk,” said Shantha Rau Barriga, disability rights director at New York-based HRW. Better housing for disabled The group urged authorities to move anyone with a disability living in tents during winter to heated prefabricated homes, and said their dire situation was “a wake-up call for the U.N. and the EU to start taking the issue more seriously.” It also called on the EU to step up its efforts and provide additional resources to austerity-hit Greece.

Talebian went on to add, “first an exhibition will be organized in Iran and then we will send some pieces to France to go on display there. There is no issue regarding the insurance as the Louvre has agreed to pay all the expenses.” “If we did not have any insurance obstacles for displaying historical pieces of other countries, they would all be keenly interested in organizing an exhibition in Iran,” he said. According to Gabriel Nokandeh, Director of the National Museum of Iran, there will be around 24 pieces from the Louvre selected from various cultures such as Greece, Egypt, and Mesopotamia that will be displayed in Tehran.

Farewell 2016 - Welcome 2017 The magic is in our hands! For me, 2016 was all about turning resolutions into revelations. It was a year full of events, shedding new light on some deep social conflicts, and saying hello to some much-needed changes... something I chose to see positively. 2016 found me in auto-recovery mode after leaving behind 2015 which was a momentous year of change and first-hand experiences - including dealing with newly involved political players in my homeland Greece, spearheading change in a public space that is known to be challenging and rather inflexible (Greece and the EU), and negotiating on the side of the Greek Government vis-à-vis the country's lenders. In so many ways, this was a tough and taxing experience. And so I crossed from auto-recovery to MAGIC... I was able to garner all my leftover energy and fulfill my promise to keep moving so as not to lose my balance.

The question of trust is at the heart of the reason why, not only in this country, but across the whole of the European continent, which happens to be largely speaking within the European Union. This is not against Europe. This is against the European Union. This is what the vote is about. This is what the discontent is about. The lack of trust between the member states themselves, the lack of trust between the citizens and the institutions and the elites in their member states who have implemented these arrangements which simply have not worked, which have generated monumental degrees of unemployment, up to 60% in some countries, including countries such as Greece and Spain, etc.

As I would to those of Scotland, Ireland or Northern not come up to British standards. With Greece in particular. I thought that might be the issue that was going to be raised and that is why I was going to say, firstly, it doesn't alter the importance of the criminal justice cooperation. Secondly, where that has been relevant as a criticism of the arrest warrant in the past, for example, it is past history, because what's not often recognised enough, there are important amendments made to the European arrest warrant in 2014.

Now, 50 years later, the awareness of how much was accomplished with Medicare, civil rights laws, the Great Society, and aid to education and immigration reformhes now going up in the historians polls. Similarly, Harry Truman left with such a low popularity rating, and then as time went by, people realized that he was the one who set us on a course to deal with the Cold War, the major problem that had emerged during his presidency, with the Marshall Plan, the alliances, aid to Greece and Turkey, and the recognition of Israel. So it really takes a while for people to put in perspective some of the turmoil thats happening at the time. Only once historians are able to take a step back and see Obama's presidency in context, able to see the extent of the challenges he faced and the effects of his actions, will they be able to really say whether he belongs on a list of great presidents like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
