On Dublin, will he commit to improving the system in Greece and Italy. Will he spent more staff, speed up the processing of applications and work with agencies in those countries to identify eligible children. We drop the pretence that the main thing driving children onto those boats is our immigration system, rather than war, poverty and famine.

We know that this can be done because it was done in France were hundreds of applications or processed in a matter of weeks. This situation is just not acceptable and we must do more. Finally, Mr Deputy Speaker, I want to address one particular argument that we hear constantly from the government when we talk about resettling refugees.

James Morris 5 min 14 sec ago Sponsored Information technology for education is in a period of considerable change. Just a few years ago, the focus was on-premise hardware and infrastructure. However, the attention has now shifted to cloud-based solutions, and at the forefront of this shift is European Electronique. Over 30 years of business, 25 of which have been serving the educational market, European Electronique has watched and driven change in information technology for education. The company began by supplying printing solutions and maintenance services to commercial organisations, but has now evolved into an IT solutions provider working across education, public and commercial sectors with a significant focus on the cloud. A key driver of the shift to the cloud is G Suite for Education allied with Google Chromebooks. The former provides ubiquitous, always-on access to a wealth of applications and services, with a low cost of use, while the latter reduces the overall per-seat cost of access to those services.

Today, researchers at the Dutch research institute CWI and Google jointly announce that they have broken the SHA-1 internet security standard in practice. This industry standard is used for digital signatures and file integrity verification, which secure credit card transactions, electronic documents, GIT open-source software repositories and software distribution. CWI cryptanalyst Marc Stevens says: "Many applications still use SHA-1, although it was officially deprecated by NIST in 2011 after exposed weaknesses since 2005. Our result proves that the deprecation by a large part of the industry has been too slow and that migration to safer standards should happen as soon as possible".

Our second biggest export to China after motorcars is Chinese students coming to study in Britain. If it is legitimate, and there are genuine students and they leave afterwards, we should welcome them with open arms. These applications have gone up by 17% since 2010. University applications have gone up, they are not and there's never been any restrictions or constraint on students coming in, only bogus students.

Google opted to set loose a small deluge of updates late into Wednesday afternoon. The first we're checking out is the Maps app, which was just promoted to version 9.47. This update doesn't appear to bring any major new features, but it takes a couple of steps to weave the Timeline feature into other parts of the interface and completely redesigns the blue dot menu. We're still looking for changes, so let us know in the comments if you stumble onto anything else.

Talking to a company's customer support rep isn't often a pleasurable experience, and sometimes it's made even more automated and less personal when getting replies from a nondescript "support" or "help" social media or email account without a face or name. That's an issue you could face on Twitter, when multiple reps are in charge of a company's account and presence, but depending on the company's policy, they either hide in anonymity or have to remember to sign messages with their initials or names to seem more approachable to users.

I'm a fan of Synology. I've had their DS416Play DiskStation for a while (review coming) and I never fathomed the idea of having my own "server" but they made the process as simple and fast as possible so that even someone like me, with no background whatsoever in server management, could be up and running in a matter of minutes. Beside their DiskStation lineup, Synology also makes a couple of routers and tries to simplify many a router setup process and hurdle with smart add-on packages.

This is the direction of travel for the court system, some people would say it is almost an system, some people would say it is almost an historical accident that we have been dragging people to court for every single we have been dragging people to court for every single healing for the last 200 years or so and it is inevitable that this will happen. The government are investing something like £1 billion in digitising the courts and modernising them and another of hearings, Bill applications and other healings are hearings they say can be done virtually.

Any shortage of people coming into the UK will be a worry for UK employers. Also it is a worry because immigrants do not only bring vital skills and economy, they also increased demand for the product and resources we provide. Any reduction in the number of people looking working in our economy will have consequences for the economy. Would you agree with Andrzej that perhaps an explanation for the reduced number of applications from people abroad to fill British jobs is because of uncertainty, anxiety, worried about whether they will be made to feel welcome here.

KABUL: Eighteen Afghans deported from Germany arrived in Kabul Thursday after their asylum pleas were rejected, the third batch to be sent back in recent months as Berlin speeds up the expulsions. Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel's cabinet approved new measures on Wednesday to expedite the repatriations even as controversy rages over sending people back to strife-torn Afghanistan. "An elderly man was among the deportees and the rest were young Afghans who arrived in a charter plane from Munich," Kabul airport official Taimoor Shah Hamidi told AFP. They were part of a third wave of repatriations of Afghans from Germany since Dec under a disputed Afghan-European Union deal aimed at curbing the influx of migrants. Nearly 80 Afghans, all men, have so far been sent back after their asylum applications were rejected by the German government. Berlin is under pressure to act as the migrant influx has boosted a right-wing populist and anti-immigration movement, and the number of far-right hate crimes against foreigners has soared.

That is interesting. Thank you. Let's talk now to Andrzej Kubisiak, a recruitment officer based in the Polish city of Warsaw who says the majority of Poles working abroad are now going to Germany, and Seamus Nevin who works for the Institute of Directors, a group representing business leaders, who says they have seen a sharp decrease in job applications from outside the UK.

That is the second highest figure since the data was first compiled in 1990. Within that category, we are seeing record numbers of people from the older EU states, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Greece have been granted citizenship. 6500. And also looking quickly at the data for the number of people applying for citizenship, in the last six months of 2016 there also appears to be historically high levels of applications.

This week was slightly different for the one game + one app 10-cent deals on the Play Store. The game, Guns'n'Glory Premium , dropped its price first and unlike the majority of previous deals, it happened worldwide. The app, however, was nowhere to be seen until now, and ta-da, it's Tiny Planet FX Pro. Womp Womp . That's not the most enticing discount, especially considering that it has dropped to 10 cents before .
