Jetlitus Jetlitus is a disease you can get because you have extraordinary skills in the art of jung fou, an ancient japagolian art. This art consists of riding horses and fighting with a bow. It is spelled ឭឰឮចរ៚. The meaning of this word is literally translated to “fruits and veggies are Banana” This art was called this because Banana. Japagolians worship Banape the Banana Grape god he created all Bananas and grapes. Acording to Japagolian legend you can only eat twelve bananas a day or the Banape will strike you with a hailstorm of grapes. The Japagolians all died because a single man ate thirteen bananas and thirteen was a cursed number so The Banape killed every living japagolian by suffocating in a hude grape storm.

Parts of the Indian state of Gujarat have been under curfew since Tuesday. At least seven are reported dead, with over 100 buses and dozens of police stations burned, after protests over job quotas turned violent in several major cities including Ahmedabad, Surat, and Rajkot.

The violence is thought to have started after a brief attempt by police to arrest protest leader Hardik Patel, 22 or 21. There have been weeks of protests by members of the Patel caste, with the most recent involving an estimated half a million people.

Ahmedabad, the largest city in the state, has seen the closure of public transport, internet access, schools, and businesses. Ahmedabad is being patrolled by 400 military personnel. The national government has deployed several thousand paramilitary personnel to assist the state government.

The Patel caste, who form up to a fifth of the state population, are generally seen as being affluent businesspeople. However, they want their community to be given the status of Other Backward Class, which would result in eligibility for reserved jobs. They feel they are under-represented in higher education and are suffering in a regional economic downturn.

Amongst those calling for an end to the violence was Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who said “each and every issue can be resolved through talks” during a televised broadcast. He was elected last year and was previously the Chief Minister of Gujarat for more than twelve years. He was in power in Gujurat during sectarian violence in 2002 which resulted in about a thousand deaths.

Salva Kiir in the United States last year.

Salva Kiir, the President of South Sudan, yesterday signed a deal designed to end a civil ethnic conflict that has killed thousands and displaced over two million.

Under the deal Kiir will share power with Riek Machar. Machar was Vice President but Kiir sacked him in 2013. December that year saw the dispute turn to war. Kiir is a Dinka while Machar is a Nuer, and the conflict has largely split along these racial lines.

Kiir spoke of “serious reservations” at the signing ceremony in Juba. He is concerned about a requirement to consult “First Vice President” Machar, as he will be under the deal, on policies. He is also concerned about demilitarisation of Juba.

The deal to close the 20-month conflict was negotiated in Ethiopia, where Machar signed the same deal last week. Several ceasefires have failed over months of talks. Kiir, the only leader in South Sudan since independence in 2011, sought an extension of a two-week deadline but signed yesterday after United Nations sanctions were threatened.

Both sides accused the other of continuing hostilities. The rebels claimed government forces attacked them south of Juba, but say they were victorious. Kiir claimed the rebels attacked a northern position. Kiir says international leaders were “careless” with negotiations and warned a flawed deal could do more harm.

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, and UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon all expressed their approval of the deal’s signing. Kenyatta called it a “happy day for us in the region”. Earlier in the day he warned there was “no such thing as a perfect agreement” and Museveni said the conflict was “the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time”.

Austrian police today found an estimated 20–50 decomposing corpses in an apparently abandoned lorry.

Roadworkers who spotted the vehicle, which had been there since yesterday at least, alerted police. Responding officers found it full of corpses. The lorry is on the so-called “Eastern Motorway“, the A4, close to the Hungarian border. It was on the hard shoulder between Neusiedl and Parndorf, closer to Parndorf.

The victims are thought to have suffocated. Police are seeking the driver. The Krone published an image of a non-articulated food lorry on the hard shoulder, which they report is the vehicle in question. The photo shows a pool of dark liquid on the ground beside the vehicle.

Video from a passing motorist shows at least one helicopter on-scene. The truck, which has pictures of meat on the side, shows branding for Slovakian food firm Hyza. Earlier today the company’s website sported an apparent anti-immigration graphic, which has since been removed.

Wikinews got in touch with Hyza. “We are truly sorry about [the] tragedy” they told us in a statement. They said they have checked GPS trackers on their fleet and all their vehicles remain in Slovakia. The statement says the lorry in question was one of 21 Hyza vehicles sold on last year. It was then sold again and exported to Hungary, where it is now registered. Hyza told us the new owners have not changed the branding on the vehicle. According to the Bild newspaper, Agrofert — the parent company of Hyza — said in a statement the new owners were required to do so.

Hyza says they will “actively cooperate with Slovak police”, and “express [their] sincere condolences to the bereaved families.”

Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner called it “a dark day” and called for European Union-wide measures to protect immigrant refugees and tackle human traffickers. Neighbouring Hungary is constructing a border fence across its entire frontier with Serbia. Yesterday alone saw a record 3,241 attempts to enter Hungary illegally, according to authorities there.

Conflict in Syria and other parts of the world has led refugees to Europe. Once inside, they can move freely inside the Schengen Area, which covers most of the EU.

Austrian police earlier this week arrested three motorists suspected of people smuggling. One driver is accused of moving 34 people, ten of them children, into Austria from Serbia. The group were left by the roadside near Bruck an der Leitha and reported struggling to breathe in the van.

Retired Bishop Geoffrey Robinson Makes Statement at Sydney Royal Commission

Thursday, August 27, 2015

The Australian Royal Commission into Institutionalised Child Abuse held a public hearing in Sydney on Monday, 24 August 2015, hearing evidence from retired Bishop Geoffrey Robinson on the history and development of the Catholic Church’s response to child sexual abuse. The Bishop also spoke of the creation, review and amendment, of Towards Healing.

A major proclamation from retired Bishop Geoffrey Robinson was: “the standard of proof is that of “moral certainty”, which is less than that of “beyond reasonable doubt”. Moral certainty must include the objective element that proofs of guilt are more probable than proofs of innocence, and the subjective element of a conviction in the mind of the assessors”.

The 78-year-old has been a bishop for 31 years in the Sydney Archdiocese. He was a priest for 54 years. He urges for “profound and enduring change” and a more compassionate approach by the church to victims of abuse by religious leaders.

Bishop Geoffrey stated that there is one field where he would feel confident that the Commission could have an influence, directly in Australia, and indirectly in other countries. He spoke of the absence of professionalism among priests and religious.

“I call for the making obligatory of things that are by now taken for granted in many other professions, e.g. psychological assessments in the selection of all candidates, training for human development, training for leadership, regular professional appraisals, the presence of a regular supervisor, obligatory in-service training, a code of conduct, specific provisions for child protection and the permanent removal of those who show a radical unsuitability for the responsibilities of priesthood and religious life.”

He stated that such measures would not solve all problems but they would assist in bringing danger signs to light much sooner. “To me it is a scandal that they do not already exist,” reads the Statement of Bishop Geoffrey.

His ending statement was, “if the Commission could exert some pressure in this field, I, for one, would be grateful.”

Baird grants early approval for Santos plant without plans

Template:Mining

NSW, Australia: Oil and gas corporation Santos has been granted conditional approval for its Leewood Produced Water and Beneficial Reuse Project, located at its proposed coal seam gas field at Narrabri.

In a decision which been called “reckless”, the Baird government has opted to grant conditional approval, despite the fact that Santos is yet to submit its water treatment and irrigation plans, without receiving a deadline to submit them.

The Division of Resources and Energy (DRE) granted approval with the condition that the company outline within six months, how it will manage a potential 500,000 litres per day of brine. The decision follows the Baird government’s agencies stating the plant could pose a “significant environment risk”.

The approval follows criticisms about Santos’ waste disposal capabilities once the Narrabri project becomes fully operational.

The DRE stated: “Conditional approvals are not unusual for projects, which may take many years and as such, require plans at different stages… Once submitted, these plans will require approval from DRE before the activity can commence”.

However, Stuart Khan, associate professor at the University of NSW School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, said although the government has left some remaining provisions to be met for the project, “once the project is constructed, it will be more difficult for the NSW Government to refuse approval to operate it”.

The news follows the failing of a Green’s bill two weeks ago, which would have seen invasive gas projects largely banned across NSW. The bill was voted down by 3 votes, 16 to 19, on August 13th. The approval reaffirms Premier Baird’s support of unconventional gas exploration, who stated in the lead up to NSW’s state election that coal seam gas, “will remain a big part of the economy”.

Gillard changes opinion on marriage equality too late

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Former Prime Minister Julia Gillard has revealed she has changed her mind about same sex marriage and now supports it.

Julia Gillard 2010

This has sparked social media back lash, after she voted against the change in federal parliament three years ago.

Responding to her on Twitter, advocates of gay marriage were criticising her belated decision to support gay marriage. “You had the chance to show real leadership on this while PM, and you didn’t. Will always see that as a mark against your time,” said one response.

In June 2010, she told Austereo: “We believe the Marriage Act is appropriate in its current form. That is, recognising that marriage is between a man and a woman, but we have as a government taken steps to equalise treatment for gay couples.”

She addressed this former view in her latest speech delivered at Victoria University, saying “the nature of Australia’s contemporary debate” on the issue had caused her to “re-examine some fundamental assumptions” she had about it.

Australian Marriage Equality national director Rodney Croome welcomed Ms Gillard’s speech.

“We welcome Julia Gillard’s decision because it shows that even the most high-profile opponents of marriage equality can open their hearts to the reform,” Croome said.

“But we urge other political leaders not to wait until it is too late for them to show leadership in Parliament, as Ms Gillard has done.”

Australian Senate launches inquiry into superannuation gender inequality

Senate launches inquiry on gender inequality for Australian super

The Australian Senate approved a motion to launch an inquiry into gender inequality of the superannuation system. The motion, approved on Monday, was backed by Labor Senator Jenny McAllister, Liberal Senator Sean Edwards and Greens Senator Larissa Waters, spurred by recent ANZ study, which revealed that women are, on average, retiring on half as much as men.

The 2015 ANZ Women’s Report indicated numerous alarming figures regarding gender inequality within the workforce. For instance, despite the fact that 42% of women aged 25-29 hold a university degree, compared to 31% of men, women are still paid, on average, 18.8% less. Women who work full-time, therefore, earn on average $295 per week less than their male counterparts—simply due to gender. In a year, this amounts to a $15,000 difference, and in a lifetime, $700,000.

ANZ CEO Joyce Phillips said globally, women earn up to 36% less than their male counterparts; this report merely confirms the financial disadvantage all women face.

“This research also confirms what’s really restricting the financial future of women is the inherent structural bias in the way the workplace, education, social and legal systems are established,” she said.

Industry Super deputy chief executive Robbie Campo welcomes the review.

“Industry super Australia’s modelling shows that even with super, pension payments and other savings combined, 63% of single women will still not be retiring comfortably by 2055 unless we act now to restructure our retirement income system,” she said.

The Greens Senator Larissa Walters attributes the growing homelessness of older women to this inequality.

“It’s timely for the Senate to examine the structural inequalities which are seeing women retire in poverty.”

“We hope the tri-partisan nature of this inquiry will lead to real outcomes to address the alarming gender retirement income gap.”
