Denotes the most excellent act of physical profundity, that of making the Chatauqua hike to GreenMountain peak, proceeding on to Bear Mountain peak, and returning via an excursion to and through the premises of NCAR before returning to Chatauqua starting point. Rarely executed, and even more rarely done right. And fast. And never, ever done with a cool sexy smart accomplished competent female partner. Until now.

An email statement released by the Interior ministry in May has revealed the closure of Dadaab refugee camp this November.

The emailed released by Joseph Ole Nkassery on the 6th May said the closure was due to economic, environmental and security costs. The minister of Internal Security and Coordination of Kenya also said the government has set aside 10 million dollars to make sure the removal of the refugees is done humanely. The Dadaab refugee camp houses 500,000 Somali refugees who have called the camp their home since 1991

The large mass of refugees are to relocate to the Jubaland State of Somalia, whose president Ahmed Mohamed Islam is said to have set aside 10,000 hectares north of Kismayo for the relocation. Ahmed Mohammed Islam has confirmed the Somalian government is ready for the refugees, but appeals to the international community for financial aid.

Somalia is one of the most displaced countries in Africa, with over a million citizens seeking a new home in neighboring countries of Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Kenya. This displacement came from a civil war beginning in 1991, as well as a drought that meant food prices rose to an unaffordable amount.

The [[w:World Bank|World Bank]] executive directors board has also recently approved 175 million dollars towards solving the issue of forced displacement of people in the Horn of Africa. The Development Response to the Displacements impact movement (DRDIP) hope to use the money to educate host communities on coping with the mass migrations on an economic, social and environmental level.

Last night Canadian MP for New Brunswick Southwest, Karen Ludwig, is chairing a national round table discussion following the ‘Conference to Develop a Federal Framework on Lyme Disease’ in Ottawa last week.

She established this meeting as being the next important step in raising awareness amongst politicians, medical professionals and the general public. This follows on from last week’s conference, in which MP Ludwig presented her views to the expert audience.

This coincides with the recent demonstration on the grounds of New Brunswick parliament, where advocates were warning of the increases in Lyme going under-reported. In 2015, over 700 cases of Lyme were reported to the Canadian Public Health Agency.

Having gone door-to-door in her electorate, she spoke of the concern many residents held regarding the impact of Lyme Disease upon individuals, their families and jobs.

Speaking to Information Morning Moncton, she said “I made a commitment… that if i got elected I would take [Lyme] on.” Sticking to her word, her first words in parliament were surrounding Lyme.

The conference and round-table are part of concluding Canada’s National Lupus Awareness Month, as Lyme is one of a number of diseases which share commonly confused symptoms with Lupus. Misdiagnoses are common between the pair, with both having symptoms mimicking the other, the main difference being how Lyme is tick-borne whilst Lupus is from within the immune system itself.

The World Bank executive directors approved a deal on Tuesday granting the Horn of Africa $175 million to improve the living standards of displaced people who now call that area home. The deal would give the money to countries like Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Somalia. These countries were chosen to combat the side effects of population growth such as entrenched poverty, environmental degradation and weak governance.

$100 million of the grant would go to Ethiopia who hosts the largest refugee population that stands at 849,146. The money would allow the Development Response to Displacement Impacts Project (DRDIP) to focus on the hosting communities to educate them on their economic, social and environment stability during this time of population growth.

The DRDIP was a result of World Bank’s partnership with the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), which is an eight-country aid block on Africa which operates in the Horn, Nile Valley, and Great Lakes of Africa.

The World Bank is is also working with partners such as the UN to address these issues, and hope to work toward a way to not only address the number of displaced people, but also the duration of the forced displacement.

As of April 30, Somalia stands as one of the most displaced countries in Africa, with over 1 million Somalis seeking a new home. 37% of these refugees are under the age of 17. This displacement was reportedly a combination of violence and drought. Somalia have been involved in a civil war since 1991, and large parts of South- central Somalia still remains insecure. Droughts affecting the agriculture industry have meant prices of food have risen, resulting in starvation. In Kenya, displaced Somalis have called camps such as Dadaab home for almost 20 years.

A Hospital in the Syrian city of Idlib had been targeted on Monday night, killing at least 23 people and leaving dozens injured.

The attack on the city of Idlib believe to be the work of the Syrian and Russian government forces conducting airstrikes. Opposition activists claim the hospital was targeted to punish civilians in rebel- held areas. However, the Russian and Syrian government believe they are targeting terrorists and have denied any civilian casualties.

Eight strikes were conducted at the national hospital in Idlib, which also destroyed several buildings in a crowded area of the city. According to opposition activists. Witnesses from the White Helmet rescue group believe the strikes were carried out by a Russian aircraft. Moscow had joined the on air attacks last September, which is said to have slowed the rebels control over areas such as Idlib.

Hospitals in the neighbouring city of Aleppo have been hit dozens of times this year, with three women killed last month when an airstrike targeted a maternity ward. 50 people were also killed in Aleppo last month when a pediatric hospital was hit. Doctors and medical workers are finding it harder to reach victims due to 57% of hospitals are closed down or partly functioning. According to NGO Medics Under Fire, 15,000 doctors have fled Syria since the regime of Bashar al- Assad.

The attacks in Idlib and Aleppo bring the death toll of the Syrian war to 250,000 which began in 2011.

Eleven US states file lawsuit against transgender bathroom directive

Eleven US states file lawsuit against transgender bathroom directive

Wednesday, June 1, 2016

Eleven US states announced last Thursday that they would be filing a joint lawsuit against the government’s administration efforts to expand bathroom rights to include transgender students in North TexasFederal District Court. In the lawsuit they were suggesting that the issue needed to be decided by each state individually and not on federal level. Last Saturday, the governor of Mississippi announced plans to also join the lawsuit.

The United States President Barack Obama’s new directive was announced earlier this month appeared to give transgender students the right to use the bathroom they wish in schools.

The plaintiffs included Texas, Wisconsin, Alabama, West Virginia, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Utah and Georgia, and also Gov. Paul LePage of Maine and the Arizona Department of Education. West Virginia and Louisiana having Democratic leaders, and the other nine states had Republican leaders. Texas attorney-general Ken Paxton announced the suit in a statement on their official website. In the release he said, “the Obama administration is trampling the United States Constitution”.

States involved in the lawsuit have made the argument that the country’s federal government is taking matters into their own hands and creating directives which should be left to individual states, and as a result should not be followed as it is sidestepping each states government. The states called the directive “a massive social experiment”.

Furthermore, it was announced today that the state of Kansas are also considering submitting a resolution against Obama’s newest directive.

The new directive was put in force by the government in response to North Carolina passing a law requiring usage of public bathrooms according to the sex listed on a person’s birth certificate. The US Justice Department had challenged the North Carolina law as discriminatory.
