He wants to avoid that certainly in areas where there is complete control," the refugee agency spokesman said. UNHCR has begun helping displaced people in the worst-affected areas, Dobbs said, but "swift and substantial action and adequate funding are becoming urgently needed to avoid famine and a repeat of 2011." The U.N. agency urgently needs $825 million to carry out humanitarian operations until June, he said. On a related issue, the United Nations released $18.5 million from its global emergency fund in response to a new catastrophic drought in Ethiopia. Jens Laerke of the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs told VOA this response was "triggered by the very rapidly deteriorating situation we have in Ethiopia, and in particular in the Somali region, where the pastoralists were extremely vulnerable to climatic changes and were in very dire condition.

It's crucial to value and learn from the work of older activists, especially as the resistance builds and strengthens during the Trump era. A moving new short film called Together We Rise celebrates the importance of intergenerational activism, and recognizes the trailblazers of decades past. In less than two minutes, the largely silent film illustrates how connections between older and younger activists are necessary in order to sustain a movement. SEE ALSO: 6 ways to push your online activism into the real world in the Trump era Directed by visual artist and producer Francesca Beltran , Together We Rise was first screened on Jan. 21 at the Women's March on Washington, which commissioned the film.

More closely following statutes like the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act will reduce lawsuits against the agency, Pruitt said — like the sort he used to bring. However, environmental groups are certain to go to court over any efforts by Pruitt’s EPA to rewrite the Obama-era regulations. Environmental groups and most Democrats had opposed Pruitt's appointment as the nation's top environmental regulator, criticizing his ties to the fossil fuel groups that were also backers of his state-level campaigns. Questions around those links could grow with the release ordered by an Oklahoma judge last week of thousands of emails Pruitt exchanged with oil and gas executives while Oklahoma attorney general. It’s not clear exactly when those will be released to the public, and several may be reviewed by the judge first. EPA issued two unusual press releases in recent days that included praise for Pruitt from Republican lawmakers, as well as industry groups that had chafed under the previous administration's rules.

It is said that they were armed with a gun and a knife and a threatened the prison officers and demanded that Walmsley be released. All three then disappeared in a gold coloured Volvo. We are told that neither prison officer was hurt in this incident, but the three men are now missing. It seems that this was probably a carefully planned operation by the other two accomplices? That is certainly the indication from what we are being called by Merseyside Police.

Campaigning for him to be released. Absolutely. Some of them are associated a little too closely with this radical ideology. They use the legal system, freedoms of speech, the importance of the rule of law, to subvert some of our systems in the UK and elsewhere.

And rather than staying as a fighter, he volunteered for a suicide mission a few days ago in the fight around Mosul. IS have released a picture of him smiling as he drives to his death, chillingly, and blowing himself up. With me is Afzal Ashraf, a former RAF officer and counter-terrorism advisor to the US command in Iraq, who is now a fellow with the Royal United Services Institute.

He was released in 2004 and brought back to Britain. One paper said he was paid £1 million in compensation. Ten years later, he crossed the border from Turkey into Syria, presenting himself to the so-called Islamic State, saying, I don't know much about Islam, but I would like to be a fighter. So they took him in. His wife and family followed her arm out and begged him to change his mind.

Magazine ad from the author's collection. Remember the scene in the movie Viva Las Vegas when Elvis and Cesare Danova (aka, Count Elmo Mancini) are lying under the Count’s Ferrari when Ann-Margret walks into the garage? Evidently she’s experiencing car trouble with her white Triumph TR3A, and asked Elvis and the Count to check it out, although Elvis was checking out more than just the little Triumph. Four years before Viva Las Vegas was released, the Standard-Triumph Motor Company placed this full-page, black and white ad for their hardtop-equipped TR3A in the February 1960 edition of Sports Cars Illustrated magazine. Did Standard-Triumph know that a sports car movie with Elvis was soon to be filmed in Las Vegas, after all, the ad copy in the first paragraph states: Witness the lucky Las Vegas driverLucky was Elvis’s name in this fun-filled movie that was teeming with a huge variety of both European and American sports and racing cars.

(No reports from more widely-known news sources could be found on the matter.) Microsoft hasnt made any mention of the discontinuation of the Surface Pro 3, having released fresh firmware for this device specifically just at the end of January. Not to mention right about when reports of it going missing from Microsofts online stores were published. Being a third-generation Surface device like the Surface 3, it would make sense for Microsoft to discontinue the Pro version alongside this one, though the lack of any specific word on the matter is unexpected. Perhaps Microsoft is making room in its portfolio for a forthcoming Surface Pro 5 and Surface Book 2 , both expected to launch later this year. Regardless, without a statement from Microsoft, anything said on the Surface Pro 3s disappearance is pure speculation. As such, weve contacted Microsoft for comment, and will update this article should we receive a response. Heres whats new with Windows 10 these days

The White House says it's working on a new executive order to replace the immigration travel ban blocked by the courts. While that ban against refugees, as well as citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries, drew headlines worldwide, President Trump's immigration policies at home have received less attention. But new policies released today would increase the number of undocumented immigrants that could be deported.
