After a series of recent riots it's hoped the changes will help transform crisis-hit prisons. Luke Farrington has more. There were 20,000 people serving time in England and Wales in the 1950s. Since then, our prisons have swelled with 85,000 currently in jail. Despite that increase, the number of prison officers has fallen by 30% in seven years.

The truth is that there is a crisis in our prisons, a crisis of overcrowding and understaffing and the crisis of violence, drugs and disorder. The sad reality is that this bill will not solve the crisis. There are currently 85,000 people detained at her Majesty's pleasure and while Liz Truss hopes her plans will modernise the system she has said it will "take time and determination". Nick Dixon, Good Morning Britain. Forget your five a day. Scientists at Imperial College in London say we should be eating double that amount of fruit and vegetables. They double that amount of fruit and awful lot.

According to the Washington Post in February 4 th , and shortly after his boss’s National Security Advisor put “Iran on notice ,” the U.S. Defense Secretary, Jim Mattis advocated restraint, adding that the “threat from Iran’s missile program does not currently require the realignment of U.S. forces in the Middle East .” Four days later, on February 8 th , the Post reported that General Mattis tried once again to calm the overly excitable by pointing out that no military steps against Iran were necessary . He has consistently spoken against provoking Iran and has even departed from Trump’s promise of tearing up the nuclear agreement, saying during his confirmation hearings that the United States should honor the deal . There are two reasons why Mattis is hesitant to provoke Iran. First, because he is familiar with the deadly effects of Iranian rockets from personal experience.

Kaplan writes of him speaking such truths, as does Erik Ortiz at NBC News, Eli Lake at Bloomberg View , Tom Rogan at National Review , and in so many words, Stevenson in the Times . Even People , that learned journal of military affairs, hailed McMaster, claiming that his book about the Johnson-era Pentagon command, had attained for him “cult-like status within the military.” Thanks to all the honeyed talk in the press, McMaster’s 1997 book, Dereliction of Duty: Lyndon Johnson, Robert McNamara, The Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies that Led to Vietnam , currently occupies the No. 1 bestseller slot on Amazon . I come not to knock the lieutenant general—who seems deserving of a portion of this love—but to question the instant consensus that has formed and wrapped itself around the press corps psyche like an African Rock Python . Since the dawn of newspapers, journalists have tended to gravitate toward one of two poles when assessing a person in the news.

The army still has no resources, just like before. People have become three times poorer and the authorities are not doing anything," he said. None of the three groups behind the rally — the nationalist Svoboda (Freedom) party, the far-right Right Sector and the newly formed National Corps party founded by members of the Azov battalion — are currently represented in parliament. Yanukovych has lived in exile in Russia since fleeing Ukraine on Feb. 22, 2014. His successor, Petro Poroshenko, has tried to move Ukraine toward the European Union but the country is still dogged by poverty and corruption, and the conflict in eastern Ukraine remains unresolved. Ukrainians are also now concerned that U.S. President Donald Trump may roll back sanctions imposed on Russia over its actions in Ukraine.

On its Twitter account, ColorWare says developing a process for the AirPods was "FAR from easy." It was FAR from easy, but we made it happen! AirPods now come in your choice of 58 colors: https://t.co/9ukve4qGKe #WeDidIt pic.twitter.com/suvrPPoazy ColorWare (@ColorWare) February 22, 2017 The total price for a fully customized set of AirPods plus case is 319, which is about double the price of a plain white set of AirPods purchased from Apple. In addition to shelling out quite a bit of money for a custom set, those who order AirPods from ColorWare will also need to wait for approximately six weeks for their order to arrive. ColorWare often lets customers send in their own devices to be painted, but this isn't currently an option with the AirPods. Because 319 is a lot of money to shell out for an accessory, ColorWare does offer paint samples so users can test colors out before placing an order.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned Wednesday that 20 million people in four countries face famine unless the international community steps in to prevent it. "The situation is dire," Guterres told reporters. "Millions of people are barely surviving in the space between malnutrition and death, vulnerable to diseases and outbreaks, forced to kill their animals for food, and eat the grain they saved for next year's seeds." The United Nations has declared South Sudan, Somalia, Yemen and the northeastern part of Nigeria on the brink of famine in the next six months. The world body already has declared that about 100,000 people in two counties of South Sudan's Unity State currently are coping with famine. "Famine is already a reality in parts of South Sudan. Unless we act now, it is only a matter of time until it affects other areas and other countries," Guterres said.

PETALING JAYA: Glomac Bhd's net profit dropped by 72.7% for the third quarter of financial year 2017(3QFY17), registering only RM5.37 million against RM19.68 million in the previous corresponding period, due to the completion of some projects. Revenue dropped 44% from RM158.13 million to RM 87.49 million. “The group recorded lower revenue compared to previous corresponding quarter. However, revenue is maintained for the corresponding year to date mainly due to completion of Glomac Centro and Reflection Residences and tail end projects in Saujana Rawang,” Glomac said in its filing with Bursa Malaysia. The group opined that the environment will remain challenging. “With the disposal of land of RM145.6 million that was completed in the first quarter of financial year 2017, unbilled sales currently in hand and the planned future launches for the current financial year, the group’s performance for the financial year ending April 30, 2017 is expected to be satisfactory within the current environment,” it said.
