AP sources Trump to extend sanctions relief for Iran

first_imgWASHINGTON – President Donald Trump is expected this week to extend relief from economic sanctions to Iran as part of the nuclear deal, citing progress in amending U.S. legislation that governs Washington’s participation in the landmark accord, according to U.S. officials and others familiar with the administration’s deliberations.But Trump is likely to pair his decision to renew the concessions to Tehran with new, targeted sanctions on Iranian businesses and people, the six people briefed on the matter said. The restrictions could hit some firms and individuals whose sanctions were scrapped under the 2015 nuclear agreement, a decision that could test Tehran’s willingness to abide by its side of the bargain.The individuals — two administration officials, two congressional aides and two outside experts who consult with the government — weren’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter and demanded anonymity. They cautioned that Trump could still reject the recommendation from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defence Secretary James Mattis and national security adviser H.R. McMaster and that no final decision had been made. They said heated discussions were going on within the administration and with key Republican lawmakers.The State Department and White House didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.Trump must decide by Friday to extend the nuclear-related sanctions relief for Iran’s central bank or re-impose the restrictions that President Barack Obama suspended two years ago.The old, central bank sanctions largely cut Iran out of the international financial system, and are considered to be the most powerful of the penalties imposed by the U.S. during the Obama era, along with global penalties for buying Iranian oil. Some Iran hawks want to see both sets of restrictions return, but the six people with knowledge of Trump’s plans say the president isn’t planning to reinstate either at this point.The individuals said Trump’s top national security aides appear to have successfully made a different case to the president: Waiving anew for 120 days the nuclear-linked sanctions while simultaneously imposing new measures to punish Iran’s ballistic missile testing, alleged terrorism support and human rights violations.Such a balance could satisfy Trump’s demand to raise pressure on Iran, while not embarking on a frontal assault on the most central trade-offs of the nuclear agreement. While the U.S. and other world powers rolled back economic restrictions on Tehran, the Iranians severely curtailed their enrichment of uranium and other nuclear activity. Trump has complained that many of the Iranian restrictions expire next decade and has vacillated between talk of toughening the deal and pulling the U.S. out entirely.A senior State Department official told reporters Wednesday that Tillerson and Mattis would be meeting with Trump on the matter before an announcement Friday. Trump, Tillerson and Vice-President Mike Pence were scheduled to have lunch Wednesday at the White House after a formal Cabinet meeting.The decision coincides with the administration’s efforts to secure a face-saving fix from Congress on the requirement for Trump to address Iran’s compliance every three months. In October, Trump decertified the nuclear deal under U.S. law, saying the sanctions relief was disproportionate to Iran’s nuclear concessions, and describing the arrangement as contrary to America’s national security interests.Tillerson told The Associated Press in an interview last week that he and others were working with Congress on ways to amend the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, or INARA, to resolve concerns Trump has with the deal. That will be coupled with diplomacy with European government on addressing Iran’s missile testing and support for the Hezbollah militant movement, Shiite rebels in Yemen and Syrian President Bashar Assad.“The president said he is either going to fix it or cancel it,” Tillerson said of the overall deal. “We are in the process of trying to deliver on the promise he made to fix it.”On the INARA law, it’s unlikely Congress could move fast enough to codify changes by Friday. So Tillerson and others are hoping to convince the president there’s enough momentum to warrant another extension of sanctions relief and not jeopardizing the entire agreement. The goal would be for Congress to make the changes sometime before May, when Trump is next required to address the sanctions.Trump has repeatedly dismissed the Iran deal, one of Obama’s signature foreign policy achievements, as the worst ever negotiated by the U.S. He has particularly bristled at having to give Iran a “thumbs up” every few months by acknowledging that it is meeting the requirements to invest in foreign banks, sell petroleum overseas, buy U.S. and European aircraft, and so forth.Iran hawks in Congress and elsewhere worry the changes being discussed don’t strengthen the nuclear deal enough.One would automatically re-impose, or “snap back,” suspended sanctions if Iran commits certain actions, possibly including things unrelated to its nuclear program. Currently, Congress must act for the sanctions to snap back.Another proposal would require snapback if Iran refuses a request from the International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.N.’s atomic watchdog, to inspect a military site not currently being monitored. Iran hawks worry the IAEA, fearing a confrontation with Iran, won’t even ask for such an inspection.Other debates centre on Iran’s missile testing. Hardline Republican Sens. Tom Cotton, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz want sanctions back if Iran launches any ballistic missiles capable of targeting territory outside of Iran, such as Israel or Saudi Arabia, and not just an intercontinental missile.Senate Democrats, generally more supportive of the nuclear deal, are pushing their own suggestions. One would let a simple House and Senate majority stop any effort to snap back sanctions, unless the president vetoes the block. While such a mechanism is unlikely to threaten Trump in the short term, some anti-deal Republicans fear it could be used against them under a future Democratic president.last_img read more

Nepal UN official appeals for unimpeded access for delivery of humanitarian aid

29 August 2007A United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) official today repeated his call for his agency’s staff, trucks carrying food aid and its partners to have unhindered access to deliver urgently-needed humanitarian assistance to flood-impacted people in the Terai region of Nepal. Although the WFP has received assurances from several parties that they will ensure that the agency’s staff and food aid delivery will not be impeded, they “are not being permitted to move along highways in the Terai during strike periods,” Richard Ragan, WFP Country Representative in Nepal, said in a statement. In the last week, commercial trucks transporting humanitarian food supplies those affected by floods in Kailali, Banke and Bardiya have been blocked in several sections of the East-West Highway, he said. Mr. Ragan also warned that should WFP staff and trucks carrying supplies continue to be hindered in their efforts to deliver aid, “we will be forced to suspend operations to provide humanitarian food assistance to flood victims.” Earlier this month, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) noted that the affected agro-ecological zone of the Terai is the Himalayan nation’s grain basket, accounting for over 70 per cent of the total production of rice, the basic staple. Though water levels have receded from the second week of August, thousands of hectares of agricultural land have been destroyed at the peak of the planting season, FAO said. While a detailed assessment of crop losses is not yet available, the overall outlook for this year’s production has deteriorated. At sub-national level, food shortages in the Terai, affected by drought and floods in 2006, are likely to worsen. read more

Isis leader calls for fight to the death in audio recording

first_img JIHADIST LEADER ABU Bakr al-Baghdadi called on his fighters to resist as Iraqi forces who were poised to enter the city of Mosul today where he declared a “caliphate” two years ago.The appeal was made in an audio recording released online and purported to be by the elusive leader of the Islamic State group, his first message this year.“Do not retreat,” he said. “Holding your ground with honour is a thousand times easier than retreating in shame.”“To all the people of Nineveh, especially the fighters, beware of any weakness in facing your enemy,” Baghdadi said, referring to the northern Iraqi province of which Mosul is the capital.In June 2014, days after jihadist fighters swept across swathes of Iraq, he made a rare public appearance in Mosul and announced the creation of an Islamic “state” straddling Iraq and Syria.The “caliphate” has been shrinking steadily since last year and Iraqi forces earlier this week reached Mosul, the jihadists’ last major stronghold in Iraq.Tens of thousands of Iraqi forces, backed by the US-led coalition and its warplanes, launched a massive offensive on Mosul on 17 October.It was not immediately possible for AFP to authenticate the recording, entitled’This is what God and his messenger have promised us’, but leading experts of the jihadist organisation did not appear to doubt it.Sunni ‘traitors’ Rumours have abounded about the Iraqi jihadist leader’s health and movements but his whereabouts are unclear.IS has had a tendency to fall back when massively outnumbered lately, giving up some of its emblematic bastions — such as Fallujah in Iraq and Dabiq in Syria — without following its own apocalyptic ideology of fighting to the bitter end.In his latest message, which is undated but makes references to events that are at most a few weeks old, Baghdadi calls for attacks against Saudi Arabia — a favourite target of his — and Turkey.Ankara has troops stationed at a base just outside Mosul and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s escalating rhetoric has raised fears of a unilateral Turkish intervention in Iraq.Baghdadi also said that his followers who could not travel to Syria or Iraq should aim for Libya and urged all IS fighters to remain united in adversity.He attempted to stir up sectarian resentment by referring to religious flags and slogans of Shiite fighters among the Iraqi forces and by accusing the country’s Sunni politicians of treason.The recapture of Mosul by Iraqi forces could spell the end of the group’s days as a land-holding force in Iraq and deal a death blow to the “caliphate”.The US-led coalition estimates the number of IS fighters holed up in Mosul at 3,000 to 5,000 and has warned the battle of Mosul could be long and difficult.Iraqi forces advancing on Mosul from three main fronts have retaken dozens of villages and towns scattered over hundreds of square miles in just over two weeks.Earlier this week, federal forces reached the eastern edge of Mosul and on Wednesday were clearing the most recently reconquered areas to set up a breach of the city.Gunfire echoed across the village of Gogjali on Mosul’s eastern edge Wednesday as elite Iraqi forces worked to clear the area.CiviliansCivilians, who emerged cautiously from their homes, some carrying white flags, told tales of IS brutality.“They confiscated my tractor and then threw me in jail for six days. They beat me and when I got out I couldn’t do my work anymore,” Yusef Fariq said.The 40-year-old farmer, speaking from his home in Gogjali and surrounded by his mother and two sons, still had the long beard IS militants forced him to grow. A family waits inside a room as Iraqi special forces soldiers search their house in Gogjali, an eastern district of Mosul, Iraq, yesterday. Source: orla“They were killing us, always asking for money, we couldn’t go anywhere. We went through hell,” his mother said.The electric hair clipper a member of the Iraqi special forces gave to residents of Gogjali was the village’s most popular item as men who had been forced to grow beards by IS were finally able to shave.With an assault on the city looking imminent, aid groups said they were “bracing for the worst” and warned that the fate of a million-plus civilians still believed trapped inside Mosul was in the balance.They have called for corridors allowing the safe escape of civilians to be opened.IS fighters have been rounding up residents in villages and using them as cover to move across the battlefield, prompting fears they would systematically hide behind “human shields” to defend the city.- © AFP 2016Read: Obama warns voters the fate of the world is at stake in US electionRead: Italy’s ‘get tough’ approach to refugees leading to unlawful expulsions, ill-treatment – report Thursday 3 Nov 2016, 7:59 AM Short URL Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Image: AP/Press Association Images Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi By AFP 57 Comments Image: AP/Press Association Imagescenter_img http://jrnl.ie/3059954 Nov 3rd 2016, 7:59 AM 14,161 Views Share13 Tweet Email Isis leader ‘calls for fight to the death’ in audio recording “Do not retreat.

Hypersensibilité Un plan daction pour faire reconnaître la maladie

first_imgHypersensibilité : Un plan d’action pour faire reconnaître la maladieFrance – Mercredi s’est tenu un colloque sur les pathologies de l’hypersensibilité à la Mutualité française de Paris. Organisé par le RES (Réseau environnementale santé), cette réunion avait pour objectif d’établir un plan d’action pour faire reconnaître ces troubles mais également pour améliorer la prise en charge des malades.Les pathologies de l’hypersensibilité (hypersensibilité chimique multiple [MCS], électro-sensibilité, syndrome de fatigue chronique [CFS],fibromyalgie…) sont des maladies environnementales liées aux substances chimiques et aux champs électromagnétiques. Elles sont actuellement encore largement ignorées par certains professionnels de santé et certaines institutions. La plupart du temps elles sont considérées comme relevant de problèmes individuels purement psychologiques.  Pourtant dans plusieurs pays, le nombre de personnes atteintes par ces pathologies est de plus en plus important. En France, plusieurs centaines de milliers de personnes seraient concernées par ce trouble parfois si handicapant qu’il amènerait certains malades à perdre leur emploi, sans qu’il soit pour autant diagnostiqué. L’hypersensibilité concerne 12 à 25% de la population des pays industrialisés  D’après le Réseau, les MCS (hypersensibilité chimique multiple) par exemple toucheraient  de façon plus ou moins sévère 12 à 25% de la population des pays industrialisés dont 3,5% de façon très sévère au point d’entraîner un isolement complet. A partir du point de vue des scientifiques, des malades et des médecins, le colloque visait à mettre au point un plan d’action dont le but serait d’informer les professionnels de santé mais également de développer la recherche afin d’améliorer la prise en charge des malades. Les associations souhaitent que les pouvoirs publics prennent en compte au plus vite les souffrances des patients. L’Agence de sécurité sanitaire de l’environnement et du travail (Afsset) a déjà recommandé, fin 2009, la poursuite des recherches dans le domaine.Le 23 avril 2010 à 18:31 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Americans owe three times as much for student loans as they did

first_imgAmericans owe nearly three times as much in student loan debt today as they did a decade ago. A new national report sheds light on how much the residents of every county in the U.S. owes, and it also hints at what might be driving the numbers.Compared to the rest of the nation, Washington does fairly well in terms of student debt, according to ” Debt in America,” a study by The Urban Institute. Its median debt of $16,211 is below the national median of nearly $17,000.About 14 percent of Washington residents owe debt on college loans; the share of the national population with student-loan debt is 16 percent.That matched other findings that the study revealed about states in the West. Western states — especially New Mexico, Wyoming and California — have the lowest median student debt, which correlates to low public-college tuition rates.Washington has done a good job of keeping public tuition fairly low, said Sandy Baum, who co-authored the report. Baum, a nonresident fellow in the Education Policy Program at the Urban Institute, noted that Washington also puts a substantial amount of money toward student financial aid that goes to the lowest-income students through the State Need Grant.“But that doesn’t mean there aren’t a significant number of people who are struggling to repay their debts,” she said.The report shows that in Washington, 14 percent of people with student-loan debt have defaulted on their loans and are now in collections, said Caroline Ratcliffe, a senior fellow at the Urban Institute, and Baum’s co-author. That’s slightly higher than the national average of 13 percent. “Clearly, there are people who are struggling to pay off that debt,” she said.last_img read more

DuPont and ASA Team Up To Promote Excellence and Leadership within Soybean

first_imgThe American Soybean Association and DuPont Crop Protection are seeking nominees for the 2001 ASA/DuPont Young Leader Program. The Young Leader Program is recognized throughout the soybean industry for its longstanding tradition of identifying and cultivating excellent leaders who now play an integral role in the promotion of agriculture and the success of the soybean industry in the 21st Century.The ASA/DuPont Young Leader Program targets soybean farmers who are innovative, assertive, “young in leadership” and looking to make their mark in agriculture. Now in its 18th year, the program has a tremendous record of success. Hundreds of program alumni have assumed significant leadership responsibilities in state and national soybean associations and promotion boards as well as national, regional and state agricultural organizations, including Farm Bureau, NCGA and more. Nearly all are making a difference in agriculture by ensuring that the voice of the American farmer is being heard!”Changes in agriculture are happening at such a rapid rate that farming today is different than just a year ago,” said Tony Anderson, President of ASA. “While soybean producers face many challenges, they also have tremendous opportunity to contribute to the global economy. If we are to continue to be successful, we must seek out and nurture new leadership that will help guide agriculture into the new millennium. The ASA/DuPont Young Leader Program makes it possible for us to find the exceptional leaders who will work hard to keep our industry strong.”According to Rob Dittmer, Ag Relations Manager, DuPont Crop Protection, “DuPont believes that agriculture needs strong, informed leadership at every level: locally, statewide and nationally. This program helps identify farmers that go on to leadership positions in state and national trade associations. We are proud of the ASA/DuPont Young Leader tradition and are excited to once again be involved with the program.”The 2001 class of the ASA-DuPont Young Leaders and their spouses will participate in a challenging and educational leadership experience February 21-24, 2001 in San Antonio, Texas. This four-day seminar will include leadership and issues training, and provide an opportunity for participants to meet and learn from other Young Leaders from around the country. The class will also take part in the Commodity Classic, February 25-28, 2001, which will round out a full week of learning, networking and personal growth. In late November 2001, participants will travel to St. Louis, Missouri to complete their training.Nomination forms for the 2001 ASA-DuPont Young Leader Program are being mailed to all ASA members, and can also be requested by calling (800) 688-7692. Soybean producers are encouraged to apply or nominate another producer who would be an excellent candidate for the program. Nominations should be returned to ASA by Friday, October 27, 2000, at which time they will be forwarded to the appropriate state soybean association. Each nominee will be asked to complete a one-page application form. One Young Leader will be selected from each of ASA’s state affiliates.last_img read more

After a heavy water leak was discovered following a power outage in the area, the 52-year-old reactor, which supplies approximately one-third of the world’s medical isotopes, shut down and is expected to be closed for eight months while repairs are being considered. The facility’s closure could further disrupt the supply of technetium-99 used in MDP bone scans for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, as medical facilities that require the isotopes in their diagnostic imaging procedures must now find new supply sources, while using the limited supply for emergencies only.With more than 52 molecular imaging radiopharmacies and distribution centers at multiple worldwide locations, PETNET is well prepared to increase production and availability of NaF to meet the needs of hospitals, clinics, and research facilities.For more information: www.siemens.com/healthcare FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 16, 2019 NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes Completes Construction on Beloit, Wis.

and not have to feel that stigma. That’s probably nothing new: since the days of Tetris and Super Mario Bros. every big new game craze has led parents and others to worry that kids are spending too much time fighting the virtual hordes instead of getting exercise or doing homework Those fears seem even more acute today given that smartphones and other portable devices make gaming possible anywhere (Fortnite is available on the go via iPhone Android and Nintendo Switch as well as on regular computers and gaming consoles) Meanwhile modern VR is offering unprecedentedly engrossing gaming experiences–even though there’s no Fortnite VR just yet In June the World Health Organization for the first time designated “gaming disorder” or an unhealthy obsession with video games as a unique mental-health condition “People who design [games] will say yes in fact the games are designed to be very addictive” says David Greenfield founder of the Center for Internet and Technology Addiction and assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine But he stresses that video games like Fortnite are fine in moderation so long as they are not causing kids–or anyone else–to ignore important elements of life Others meanwhile say video games can teach teamwork offer a sense of community and even give siblings a shared activity “My sons play together” says Jill Wilson-Renna a 47-year-old mother of four from Villas NJ What surprised Wilson-Renna was the day she realized her daughter was playing too: “She was staring at her phone and she said ‘Shh I’m playing Fortnite’” Wilson-Renna says Her kids coordinate their gameplay over voice chat “My oldest son doesn’t live with us but he plays with his brother I can hear them talking when I walk past my son’s room” The game might have kids retreating deeper into their screens–but it also has the power to bring them together Fortnite is shaking up the gaming industry in another big way While it’s free to download on devices from the PlayStation 4 to the iPad it’s already made $12 billion according to an estimate from industry tracker SuperData Research–mostly through the sale of so-called skins or avatars that players can buy for a few dollars to appear as anything from a medieval knight to a giant gingerbread woman While many players forgo skins or perhaps buy just a few others like Stian hve Trondheim have spent more than $1000 on them “I would never imagine I would spend so much on a free game” says Trondheim 21 who discovered Fortnite when he returned from serving in the Norwegian army “People say one hour is worth $1 if you play for fun Fortnite has given me a lot of that” As a business strategy relying on people to spend money on a free game may seem counterintuitive But giving away Fortnite has proven hugely lucrative Taking away the pain of a $60 purchase makes it easier for Fortnite to spread by word of mouth especially among kids who might otherwise need their parents’ permission (or credit card) to get a new game Meanwhile many players express a desire to contribute to the game financially as if it were a crowdfunded labor of love and not the product of a major gaming studio But even if the 700-employee Epic Games isn’t exactly small its success with Fortnite could offer a model for independent studios to compete with big-name publishers resulting in better diversity of games overall (Epic which has been largely tight-lipped about Fortnite‘s success thus far declined to make an executive available for this story) Gaming as a whole is a booming industry with overall revenues breaking the $100 billion mark in 2018 by one estimate But gamers are a fickle bunch and what’s popular in the summer is rarely the talk of the town by the holidays Epic is working hard to keep Fortnite players around with new skins and frequent changes to the combat environment that keep the game feeling fresh Still its competitors surely taking notice of the game’s runaway success have promised to bring Fortnite-style gameplay to their own popular titles like Battlefield and Call of Duty which have massive audiences of their own What will be the last game standing “All bets are off but I think Fortnite holds on because its audience loves Fortnite” says Piscatella the analyst “Maybe there could be a mass transition to some other game But man–Fortnite would have to screw something up real bad for that to happen” Write to Alex Fitzpatrick at alexfitzpatrick@timecom This appears in the September 24 2018 issue of TIMESamsung Electronics announced Tuesday that it’s stopping production of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones less than 24 hours after halting global sales of the device “(We) have decided to halt production and sales of the Galaxy Note 7
