first_imgHouse-Senate negotiators seemed hopeful Thursday that they can avoid another partial government shutdown next week.Senate Appropriations Chair Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) said after a meeting with President Trump that the conference committee is working on substantive negotiations on the main sticking point, immigration spending, and that he thinks the President will sign it.“This is the most positive I’ve been or I’ve seen in the talks since, oh gosh, maybe ever,” he said, according to CQ.Some House Democrats remained cautious, the article reported.“Nothing has been decided and nothing is finalized,” Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.) said.Shelby predicted the conferees could produce a bill by Monday, which would leave little time for error, with the current spending bill set to expire next Friday.“We hope we’ve got a deal,” Shelby told reporters. “If we haven’t got a deal, we probably won’t get a deal.”DOD photo by Reese Brown ADC AUTHORlast_img read more

first_imgMap of BoguraVillagers on Friday morning killed at least 54 baby cobras and destroyed 52 eggs from a kitchen in Shiali village in Dhunat upazila in Bogura, reports UNB.Farman Ali, a farmer and owner of the house, said people killed the cobras including two big-one and destroyed its den including 52 eggs from a firewood heap in the kitchen.At first, his sister Fensi Khatun noticed a mammoth king cobra in the kitchen in the morning while she was cooking.However, the snake managed to hide in a hole after being noticed.Later, she started to scream and called neighbours. Farman Ali along with his neighbours started digging the hole.As they did, some 54 king cobras started to come out one after another, which they killed by beating with sticks on the spot.They also recovered a total of 52 eggs and destroyed those, he added.Upazila livestock officer Nur-e-Alam Siddique said snakes usually take shelter in high place during the monsoon and sometimes come to locality as forests are decreasing.”We should not kill the cobras but to call the snake charmer and handed those over to the livestock department,” he added.Earlier in two incidents, more than 500 cobras were killed at a primary school office in the upazila.Meanwhile, villagers were passing time in great fear as they could not manage to kill the king cobra.last_img read more

72m needed to protect Rohingya women

admin no comments

first_imgOxfam Oxfam, an international agency, on Tuesday called for 15 percent of new funding to be set aside for humanitarian programmes designed to better support Rohingya women and girls, including $72 million of the nearly half a billion dollars recently committed by the World Bank.The Rohingya women living in Bangladesh are developing health problems, missing out on aid and are at the greater risk of abuse due to unsafe and unsuitable facilities in many parts of the refugee camps, Oxfam warned.Currently, there is no standalone budget for meeting women’s specific needs in the overall emergency response.Speakers said this at a report launch event titled ‘One year On: Time To Put Women and Girls At The Heart Of The Rohingya Response’ held at RAOWA Complex in the city.State minister for foreign affairs M Shahriar Alam attended the event as the chief guest.Bangladesh government and agencies have provided emergency aid to more than 700,000 Rohingya people who have arrived over the past year, but the speed at which the world’s biggest refugee camp sprang up has made it difficult for the support to keep pace.More than a third of women surveyed by Oxfam and partner agencies said they did not feel safe or comfortable going to collect water or using toilets and shower cubicles — many of which lack a roof and a lockable door.Half the women and three quarters of adolescent girls said they did not have what they needed to manage their periods, including a female-only place to wash sanitary cloths without embarrassment, Oxfam said.As a result, women are going hungry and thirsty to avoid needing the toilet as frequently, suffering abdominal pain and infections by not relieving themselves or using unhygienic sanitary cloths, and resorting to defecation by their tents, which increases the risk of a major outbreak of disease — especially in the monsoon, according to the report.Poor facilities are also increasing the risk of sexual abuse and harassment. Hundreds of incidents of gender-based violence are reported each week.Oxfam’s advocacy manager in Cox’s Bazar Dorothy Sang said the breakneck speed at which the Rohingya refugee crisis unfolded meant that many emergency facilities were installed in a rush and women’s specific needs weren’t considered.Women and girls are now paying the price in terms of their wellbeing and safety.”This needs to be rectified urgently with substantial sums set aside to support and protect Rohingya women, such as lighting to improve safety, toilets and wash rooms that provide privacy, and extra assistance for the most vulnerable.”Single mothers whose husbands are missing or dead head-up one in six families in the Rohingya camps.They face specific problems in having to take on public roles that challenge cultural and religious assumptions about women’s place in society.Oxfam called for more to be done to support these vulnerable women, such as help collecting aid packages and more community dialogue about men and women’s traditional roles.Oxfam is working with local organisations and refugees to tailor its humanitarian response to more effectively support women and girls.This includes installing solar-powered lights along pathways, distributing portable solar lamps, running women’s groups to discuss issues like safety and early marriage, community work to tackle violence against women, and working with refugees to design new toilet facilities with features like lockable doors, shelves to keep clothes out of the mud, and screens to afford privacy.”The Bangladesh government should be commended for allowing Rohingya people to seek refuge in Cox’s Bazar. We join them and others in calling on Myanmar to address the discriminatory policies that are the root cause of this crisis,” Sang said.Close to a million Rohingya people have sought refuge in Bangladesh following a military campaign against them in Myanmar that has been described by UN officials as ‘ethnic cleansing’.last_img read more

India launches antimilitant drive in Kashmir

Photo: AFPThousands of soldiers and paramilitaries were Thursday engaged in a huge anti-militant operation in Indian-administered Kashmir, where armed rebels have repeatedly attacked government forces in recent weeks.Police said government forces had surrounded at least 20 villages in the drive, launched early Thursday in Shopian district in the volatile south of the disputed Himalayan region.“It is an unprecedented operation,” deputy inspector general of police S P Pani told AFP.“It is impossible to capture the militants, but we hope there will be contact (exchange of fire) with them in the course of the day.”Suspected militants are frequently killed in shoot-outs with government forces in Kashmir, but are only rarely captured alive.Witnesses said hundreds of residents came out onto the streets in two villages, Sug and Tarkwangan, during the search operations and threw stones at the soldiers.Indian army soldiers conduct a patrol during an operation against suspected rebels in Turkwangam Lassipora in Shopian south of Srinagar on 4 May, 2017. Photo: AFPOne said soldiers had attacked private homes in his village with sticks and rocks.“It was scary. Many houses were damaged,” the villager told AFP by phone, requesting anonymity.Witnesses said army helicopters were hovering above the area as the search operations were going on.Kashmir has been divided between India and Pakistan since the end of British rule in 1947, but both claim the territory in its entirety.Rebel groups have fought for decades the roughly 500,000 Indian soldiers deployed in the Himalayan territory, demanding independence or a merger of the entire territory with Pakistan.Officials say the rebels’ ranks have swelled since July, when the killing of a popular leader by security forces sparked widespread unrest that left at least 100 civilians dead.Since then armed encounters between rebels and government forces have been more frequent.The latest operation comes after five police were shot dead this week in a raid on a bank van carrying cash—the latest in a series of bank robberies in the region carried out by suspected militants.Last week militants killed three soldiers in a pre-dawn assault on a garrison near the de-facto border known as the Line of Control that divides Kashmir between India and Pakistan.The Kashmir valley has been tense since early April, when election day violence kicked off a series of anti-India protests including by students.Popular support for the militants has also risen and villagers now regularly come out onto the streets during operations to throw stones at government forces.last_img read more

UPDATE Advocates For Gun Reform Others For Gun Rights Rally During NRA

admin no comments

first_imgAnother view of inside #NRAConvention #NRAAM2018. #dallas @keranews pic.twitter.com/tq3ck5mVYn— Stella M. Chávez (@stellamchavez) May 4, 2018Presidential speech previewBack for a return engagement, President Trump’s address to the NRA comes after he temporarily strayed from the group’s strong opposition to tougher gun controls following the school shooting in Parkland, Florida — only to rapidly return to the fold.For the fourth year in a row, Trump will speak to the group. Last year, he became the first sitting president to appear in more than 30 years, declaring that the “assault” on the Second Amendment had ended.“The NRA was one of the biggest supporters of President Donald Trump and his campaign,” NRA spokesman Jason Brown told KERA. “Our NRA members were a large part of helping propel him to the White House. It’s continued support from President Trump, it’s continued commitment to defending the Second Amendment, and it feels good.”But this year’s speech comes as the issue of gun violence takes on new urgency after one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history.Student survivors of the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 people dead are now leading a massive national gun control movement. While the shooting has not led to major changes from the White House or the Republican-led Congress, it did — at least briefly — prompt Trump to declare that he would stand up to the powerful gun lobby. He later backpedaled on that tough talk.What to expect this weekendAn estimated 80,000 people will be in town this weekend for the NRA’s annual meeting at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.“We fully anticipate that the Dallas community and visitors to this great city of Dallas will enjoy this event, participate, in whatever capacity, whether they’re protesters, counter-protesters, or supporters, with the highest level of decorum and civility,” said Paul Stokes, a Dallas assistant police chief, at a press conference.Protests are planned this weekend featuring groups opposed to the NRA and in support of gun reform. Stokes says First Amendment rights will be respected.“This is a high-profile event. So this isn’t much different than how we plan for other high-profile events,” he said. “We do have a very good blue print. And we make some adjustments based on what is happening at the convention center, but it is very consistent with our normal planning process.”The Dallas Police Department is working with officers from area cities, including Richardson, Garland, Grand Prairie, Mesquite and Irving.The NRA convention runs through Sunday.Check out the schedule of events in our guide.Protests planned this weekendSeveral protests are planned Friday and Saturday while the National Rifle Association holds its convention in Dallas.Donna Schmidt leads the Dallas chapter of Moms Demand Action. She’s helping organize a Saturday morning rally in front of City Hall. Her group will also train activists to counter the NRA’s lobbying efforts.“Frankly I’m not that concerned about a convention as I am about the NRA board and its leadership that continue to push this ‘guns everywhere agenda,’ Schmidt told KERA. “It’s the ongoing stranglehold that they’ve had on leadership in our country that we’re going to change.”There are more protests, vigils and speeches planned throughout the weekend to oppose the NRA.Open Carry Texas, a gun rights group, is planning a counter-demonstration on Saturday.Outside of the @NRA convention in Dallas today, @stephanieskuo talked with student organizers Julia Heilrayne and Olivia Hoffman + Victoria Coy of @amnestyusa. pic.twitter.com/Ne4PSjIesZ— KERA News (@keranews) May 4, 2018Find details on planned protests in our guide.Scenes from the conventionWhat border patrol recruiters are handing out here at the #NRAAM @TexasStandard @KUT @npr pic.twitter.com/ZyEl37btVy— Alain Stephens (@AlainStephens) May 4, 2018 At the NRA convention in Dallas.

We’ve seen tragedy after tragedy after tragedy,” she said. “After the Parkland students stood up, even older people are saying, “Why have we accepted ‘thoughts and prayers’ on Twitter?”Protesters gather at the NRA convention in Dallas pic.twitter.com/ms7QRC6JVn— Brian Mann (@BrianMannADK) May 5, 2018Manuel Oliver, a parent of one of the students killed in the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Florida, traveled to Dallas to attend the rally as a guest speaker. Oliver, an artist, made a painting on site at the rally.“Our generation has so many stereotypes, that we’re lazy, that we’re entitled, but one stereotype we embrace is that we’re stubborn,” Alhayek said. “If we believe in something, we keep fighting for it until it happens. I think that’s a good reason why this isn’t a lost cause.”As the Rally 4 Reform wound down, gun rights activists from groups like Open Carry Texas and the Proud Boys gathered for their own demonstration at City Hall.“We’re here to use our First Amendment right to protect our Second Amendment right, and voice our opinion and show that we’re not exactly the crazy people that society makes out gun owners to be,” said 16-year-old Emily Defosse. These two sisters from Parker County support the 2nd amendment but say they aren’t opposed to universal background checks either. @keranews pic.twitter.com/Fg6BviwRVL— Courtney Collins (@courtneylc82) May 5, 2018She was there with her sister and dad, Milferd Defosse. He thinks there are plenty of gun regulations already on the books.“If you take away from the law-abiding citizens, who’s going to protect against the criminals? And if somebody breaks into my house, for me to protect my family? My gun works faster than 9-1-1,” he said.Saturday, the second day of the NRA’s convention, was also the day when Wayne LaPierre, the organization’s executive vice president and CEO, delivered his address to the group’s members and people attending the event.Lapierre said the NRA members are “good-hearted” and “patriotic” people and added that the “political elites” and the “media elites” “demonize” the NRA.“They’ve taken their best shot. They have hit us with all the protesting, marching, screaming media Bloomberg-funded twitter-posting activists they’ve got. And you know what? We’re still here, and we aren’t going anywhere!” —Wayne LaPierre #NRAConvention pic.twitter.com/KG44jAFxvE— NRATV (@NRATV) May 4, 2018————Updated on Friday May 4th at 5:12 p.m. (Central Time) Elected officials from Texas have joined President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence in speaking to National Rifle Association members at the group’s annual meeting.Republican Gov. Greg Abbott told the crowd Friday afternoon that the answer to gun violence is to strengthen gun rights under the Constitution’s Second Amendment.He also talked about Stephen Willeford, who grabbed his rifle and ran across the street to open fire on the gunman who slaughtered 26 people in a church in the small town of Sutherland Springs in November.Willeford is an NRA member who has served as an instructor. He was honored by the NRA earlier Friday. After he exchanged gunfire with 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley, Willeford jumped in a man’s pickup truck and they pursued him. Kelley died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.Abbott said “because (Willeford) had a gun, he saved lives.”Trump assured attendees of the National Rifle Association’s Leadership Forum Friday that his administration is fighting to protect their constitutional right to bear arms.Trump told the crowd gathered inside the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in downtown Dallas that their right to bear arms is “under siege.” But he pledged that those rights “will never, ever be under siege as long as I’m your president.” The president didn’t focus solely on guns or the Second Amendment in his speech. He also implored NRA attendees not to become “complacent” and vote for Republicans in the midterm elections in November.In his speech, he endorsed Gov. Greg Abbott, Attorney General Ken Paxton and Paxton’s wife, Angela, who’s running for State Senate District 8. They all face Democratic challengers this fall. .@realDonaldTrump says people have an administration fighting to protect the second amendment and that people shouldn’t get complacent in Nov. @keranews pic.twitter.com/3CdbKsIBVt— Stella M. Chávez (@stellamchavez) May 4, 2018He said that Democrats want to “outlaw guns” and said if the nation takes that step, it might as well ban all vans and trucks because they are the new form of death for “maniac terrorists.”Vice President Mike Pence also addressed the crowd with a strong defense of the Second Amendment.“The quickest way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” Pence said, with mentions of recent mass shootings across the country.The vice president faulted media outlets for not telling “the whole story about firearms in America” and the role of “firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens” making communities safer.Much of VPs speech is about how media gets the gun debate wrong. Media mentions get boos and excited applause. #NRAAM @TexasStandard @NPR @KUT pic.twitter.com/T9P0lq20aD— Alain Stephens (@AlainStephens) May 4, 2018Both Pence and Trump mentioned Dallas Police Officer Rogelio Santander in their remarks. The 27-year-old officer was killed last month by a suspected shoplifter at a Home Depot in Northeast Dallas.Weapons of any kind were prohibited when Trump and Pence spoke.Reaction to the forumBeth Spears, an NRA member from Missouri, has been to all of the conventions in the last 25 years. She says she’s only missed one — the 1996 convention in Dallas.“It’s a family tradition.”She said she likes coming to learn about her freedoms and congregate with people who enjoy those freedoms and the same shooting sports as she does. She’s part of a competitive shooting club in Missouri.She got to hear the president and vice president speak at the forum Friday.“It’s always good just to hear it straight from them. It’s obvious that he does care about America and about the people and wants to make it great again. And that’s what I want to see.”Watch Trump and Pence speak at NRA forumFeed courtesy of PBS NewsHour.Sutherland Springs man honored The Texas man who grabbed his rifle and ran barefoot across the street to open fire on a gunman who slaughtered 26 people in a church in the small town of Sutherland Springs was honored at the NRA forum Friday.Stephen Willeford told those gathered for the group’s leadership meeting, “I took care of my community on that day and I’d do it again.”Stephen Willeford, the man who shot gunman at Sutherland Springs church, is recognized at #NRAAM2018 and gets standing ovation. @keranews pic.twitter.com/2rgGCYemLG— Stella M. Chávez (@stellamchavez) May 4, 2018Willeford was at his home on a Sunday in November when his daughter alerted him that she’d heard gunfire at the First Baptist Church nearby. Willeford has said he immediately retrieved his rifle from his weapon safe. Running across the street to the church, he saw 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley and exchanged gunfire.As Kelley sped away, Willeford ran to a pickup truck stopped in an intersection, jumped in and the two called 911 and pursued Kelley.Kelley died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.Trump on Air Force OneTrump, speaking on Air Force One on the way to the event in Dallas, called the NRA a “truly great organization that loves this country.”Trump tells reporters aboard Air Force One en route Dallas for NRA confab: “The NRA is a truly great organization that loves this country. And we have a record crowd. You probably heard, the people are lined for a long distance.”— Patrick Svitek (@PatrickSvitek) May 4, 2018The forum is sold out, with a capacity of about 8,000 people.‘More than just a privilege’Ahead of the forum Friday, attendee Rick Womack and his 11-year-old son, Jacob, talked with KERA’s Stella M. Chávez. The father and son both have lifetime memberships with the NRA. Womack said that being a gun owner is a daily choice. “Our freedom is what’s so important here and our choices that we have,” he said. “We feel that that is more than just a privilege, we feel like that’s a right.”When asked how he feels about protesters coming to speak out against the convention, he said: “It’s educational. We have to understand the problem on both sides and understand the needs that we have.”Womack and his family live in a rural area and use their guns for self-protection and hunting. “We carry daily. My son is a hunter. We hunt, we harvest, we do it the ethical way. That’s the world we grow up in,” he said. “We’re very proud to be Americans, but we’re very pro-Second Amendment.Going to Dallas (the GREAT State of Texas) today. Leaving soon!— Donald J.
