US report finds Iran threat undiminished as nuke deal nears

first_img Top Stories Top holiday drink recipes Sponsored Stories At the end of 2014, the prison attack was the deadliest terrorist operation in the world since Sept. 11, 2001, according to the report.Despite all indications pointing toward increased violence, the State Department’s counterterrorism coordinator said the numbers didn’t reflect improvements by the U.S. and its partners in stamping out terrorism financing, improving information sharing, impeding foreign fighters and forming a coalition to fight the Islamic State. “We have made progress,” Ambassador Tina Kaidanow said.Attacks occurred in 95 countries last year but were concentrated in the Mideast, South Asia and West Africa. Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India and Nigeria accounted for more than 60 percent of the attacks. Adding Syria, they comprised roughly 80 percent of the fatalities, the report found.The rise in kidnappings is mainly attributable to the mass abductions by terrorist groups in Syria, notably the Islamic State and the al-Qaida-linked al-Nusra Front.In Nigeria, Boko Haram was responsible for most, if not all, of the nearly 1,300 abductions, including several hundred girls from a school in Chibok. By contrast, the report cited fewer than 100 terror-related kidnappings reported in Nigeria in 2013. Four benefits of having a wireless security system 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility The terrorism statistics are an annex to the State Department’s “Country Reports on Terrorism,” an annual survey of attacks and trends mandated by Congress.Friday’s reports noted the “unprecedented seizure” of territory in Iraq and Syria by the Islamic State, its ability to recruit foreign fighters to join its cause and the emergence of self-proclaimed affiliates, notably in Libya, Egypt and Nigeria. It cited a rise in so-called lone wolf attacks in the West and terrorists employing more extreme methods of violence to repress and frighten communities under their control.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Yet even as the Islamic State and the Taliban were blamed for most of the death and destruction in 2014, the department’s annual terrorism report underscored the ongoing threat posed by Iran and its proxies across the Islamic world and beyond.Tehran increased its assistance to Shiite militias fighting in Iraq and continued its long-standing military, intelligence and financial aid to Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Syrian President Bashar Assad’s embattled government and Palestinian groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad. While the 388-page study said Iran has lived up to interim nuclear deals with world powers thus far, it gave no prediction about how an Iran flush with cash from a final agreement would behave.World powers and Iran are trying to conclude an accord by the end of the month, setting 15 years of restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for significant relief from the international sanctions that have crippled the Iranian economy.The negotiations don’t involve Iran’s support for militant groups beyond its border. But Israel and the Sunni monarchies of the Persian Gulf, Iran’s regional rivals, fear a fresh wave of terrorism as a result of any pact. President Barack Obama, hoping to ease their fears, has said most of the money would go to Iran’s economic development. America’s “grave concern about Iran’s support for terrorism remains unabated,” White House spokesman Eric Shultz said. “That is all the more reason that we need to make sure they don’t obtain a nuclear weapon.”In total last year, nearly 33,000 people were killed in almost 13,500 terrorist attacks around the world, according to the figures that were compiled for the State Department by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland. That’s up from just over 18,000 deaths in nearly 10,000 attacks in 2013.Twenty-four Americans were killed by extremists in 2014, the report said. And abductions soared to 9,428 in the calendar year from 3,137 in 2013.The report attributes the rise in attacks to increased terror activity in Iraq, Afghanistan and Nigeria and the sharp spike in deaths to a growth in exceptionally lethal attacks in those countries and elsewhere.There were 20 attacks that killed more than 100 people each in 2014, compared to just two a year earlier, the report said. Among those were December’s attack by the Pakistani Taliban on a school in Peshawar that killed at least 150 people and the June attack by Islamic State militants on a prison in Mosul, Iraq, in which 670 Shiite prisoners died.

Statistics released by the State Department on Friday also pointed to a tenfold surge in the most lethal kinds of attacks.last_img read more

Intrepid Connections sold to PEAK travel

first_imgPEAK Adventure Travel Group has become the sole owner of the Intrepid Connection business after purchasing the remaining 50 percent from Australian Pacific Tourism (APT) late last week.The other 50 percent of the company was purchased in January 2010 by PEAK’s subsidiary company Intrepid Travel.A statement from PEAK read that travellers already booked with Intrepid Connections will not experience any disruptions as the newly acquired company will continue to operate as a separate brand.However, from 2 and 31 October, PEAK said it will consolidate both Intrepid Connections Australian operations and its other company Adventure Tours Australia (ATA) into a newly named PEAK NT Operations Centre in Alice Springs and Darwin. “The sales and marketing of Intrepid Connections trips will continue to operate from Melbourne.

President Addresses Housing Concerns Demands Congressional Action

first_img in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing President Addresses Housing Concerns, Demands Congressional Action In his State of the Union address, amid discussion of tackling the federal deficit and revising America’s tax laws, President Barack Obama gave special attention to the nation’s recovering but still-struggling housing market. [IMAGE]””Together, we have cleared the rubble of crisis, and can say with renewed confidence that the state of our union is stronger,”” Obama stated. “”Our housing market is healing, our stock market is rebounding, and consumers, patients, and homeowners enjoy stronger protections than ever before,”” he said.[COLUMN_BREAK]Obama acknowledged the progress that has been made in the housing market with rising prices, increasing home purchases, and an uptick on construction. However, “”even with mortgage rates near a 50-year low, too many families with solid credit who want to buy a home are being rejected,”” he said. Obama also proclaimed his support for expanding access to refinancing. In fact, a bill currently making its way through Congress would allow homeowners to save $3,000 annually through refinances, he said. In particular, the bill is aimed at helping underwater homeowners who are current on their mortgages but have been ineligible to refinance through the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP). “”What are we waiting for? Take a vote, and send me that bill,”” Obama said. Obama also reiterated his intent to provide support for struggling neighborhoods by rebuilding vacant homes. “”Let’s put people back to work rebuilding vacant homes in run-down neighborhoods,”” Obama said, adding that this year his administration will target 20 of the “”hardest-hit towns in America to get these communities back on their feet.”” This effort, known as “”Project Rebuild,”” was first introduced in the president’s “”American Jobs Act””: in 2011.

4 The safari holiday Ah yes safari chic Ditch t

first_img4. The safari holidayAh yes, safari chic. Ditch the shorts and get some light trousers to protect your legs from mosquitoes – red blotches are not a good look. Also avoid camouflage patterns as a) you’ll look like you’re from a 90s girl group and b) it is actually illegal in certain countries as it is army attire. Avoid being arrested – you’ve seen what happens in Orange is the New Black.5. The party holidayBig hair and even bigger heels – if you are going on a party holiday you have the opportunity to dress to the nines and look amazing every night. Chances are, you’ll be partying somewhere pretty warm so pack accordingly. Dresses, sheer blouses with skirts and playsuits are all ideal. Leather trousers, and beaded jumpers can maybe be saved for when you are back home. More: 10 of the world’s sexiest bars (and what to drink there) 2. The beach holidayIt is a skill to spend a day at the beach and still look and feel great but it can be done! Go glam with a statement maxi over a flattering swimsuit and massive shades (the bigger the better) that are a full proof way of getting to and from the beach (or poolside). Make sure you leave the hair-straighteners behind and rock that au natural beach hair to complete the look.More: 10 of the world’s best beaches: in pictures3. The camping tripGather round the campfire and wrap a chunky knitted sweater or woollen jacket around you that’ll look effortlessly cool with skinny jeans or a skirt. If it’s especially cold, invest in a wool beany hat and matching scarf – they’ll substitute for an extra pillow too! 8. The backpacking adventureWhen you are backpacking, your clothes have to go a bit further than most holiday wardrobes. Although there isn’t necessarily one essential item to take on this sort of trip, there is one essential piece of advice – make sure you have mix and match items. Backpacking for six weeks with six outfits will start to feel a bit boring. Bringing some neutral items like denim shorts, a cream blouse and then some more outlandish pieces that can be swapped around and will ensure that you never have the same outfit twice – also bring some cheap jewellery (never pack your expensive stuff) to mix things up a bit. 9. The festival goerHeading to a festival abroad? Make sure you are prepared. No matter where you are, festivals always seem to be muddy. A pair of bright and bold wellies will keep your feet dry and look good with both shorts and leggings. Remember to pile on the accessories. Flowers, bindis, and headpieces – anything goes.10. The shopping holidayThe fashionista’s ultimate holiday. From London to New York there are some great places to spend your hard-earned cash. It’s all about the effortless one piece on these kinds of trips whether it be a jumpsuit or dress so you can easily try on the piles of clothing you take to the fitting room. Also limit the accessories – makes trying things on a bit more complicated! More: 10 best places to shop in New York Getting ready to jet off on a fabulous holiday? Remember it’s not just about how you pack but what you pack. Going on a holiday is the perfect time to update and flaunt your wardrobe – just think, you need to make sure you look good in those holiday snaps!It can be daunting to decide what to pack, what is necessary and what is excessive (but really, when it comes to fashion, can you really be excessive?). To help you prepare, we’ve put together a list of the best style tips (depending on the holiday you go on). Follow this advice and be rest assured that you’ll be the best dressed on the plane.1. The city breakWhat to pack for a city break? Well, of course, it depends where you are going. Although you’ll be in a thriving, fashionable, metropolitan hub, you still want to be comfortable for those full-on days of walking tours, museums and hikes up to viewpoints. It’s essential you bring a pair of comfortable (yet gorgeous) shoes – think brogues for your ultra-stylish cities like Paris and Milan, a pair of cut out T-bar shoes or pumps for hotter cities like Barcelona or a pair of ankle boots for winter city breaks in the likes of Oslo or Amsterdam. In neutral colours of course so you can wear them with all your carefully selected outfits. They say that fashion is pain, but hobbling around a city surely isn’t a good look? Leave the heels in your hotel room. Would you like to take a trip in style this summer? Now is your chance with our #JourneyInStyle competition. Find out more.Need destination inspiration?

Parents group asks for postponement of midterm exams

first_imgThe federation of high school parents said on Friday they would like midterm exams, which are to be introduced in high schools in September, to be postponed for at least a year to give time to better prepare students for the change.The group said in an announcement that they agree with most of the proposed amendments from Education Minister Costas Hambiaouris on the introduction of the exams, which aim to provide ‘a more proper and functional dimension’.It said that following a board meeting the federation decided to request the postponement, ‘provided that dialogue will continue, to resolve or regulate all pending issues’.“We believe that educational reform will not be significantly affected by the suspension of the implementation of the midterm exams, but it will actually help to ensure that this institution, if and when it is implemented, is properly applied and does not victimise the students,” it said.The group said it would seek in the immediate future dialogue with the education ministry, the House education committee, teachers’ unions and organised students in a bid to achieve common ground on midterm exams.The group said it is happy with other changes concerning teaching time and student evaluation but added that teacher evaluation is still pending.The introduction of midterm exams was not welcomed by teachers or students.High school student representatives delivered to the education ministry’s permanent secretary last week a memo with 5,000 signatures against the tests, saying they would force students to ‘chase after grades’ instead of focusing on actual learning.Last month, members of the secondary education teachers’ union Oelmek voted against their introduction. The union had said that the result of the referendum was binding and would determine Oelmek’s stance in upcoming consultations between the education ministry and the House education committee on the new regulations. You May LikeDiscover Hidden TorontoToronto Travel Guide: Explore the Best of The SixDiscover Hidden TorontoUndoPrettyWomanMag.comTop 30 Most Beautiful Women in the WorldPrettyWomanMag.comUndoTripOnMag.com23 Really Beautiful Beaches in the WorldTripOnMag.comUndo Heroes’ welcome for Israeli teens after woman detained for false rape claim (Update 2)UndoMayors lobbying president to prevent local govt mergersUndoFilms and food at RialtoUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

hiding his employment with a company in the UAE has been filed in the High Court here A file photo of Imran Khan Reuters Mohammad Usman Dar an activist of Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf on Thursday filed the petition Dar sought disqualification of Asif alleging that the foreign minister did not declare details of his employment contract with a UAE-based company and also concealed the salary details The petition claimed that Asif had been an employee of Mech and Elec Co LLC (IMECL) since 2011 where he was working as a special adviser It claimed that Asif was entitled to draw salary which was his receivable asset; however since he did not declare it in the nomination form while contesting the 2013 general elections from NA-110 he was not qualified to remain a member of the National Assembly The petition relied upon the recent definition of the Supreme Court regarding receivable salary on the basis of which it disqualified former prime minister Nawaz Sharif Asif of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz had defeated Dar in the 2013 general elections with a margin of over 21000 votes The Taliban and their sponsors seem to be making a statement written in letters of blood The violence during last week has been horrific even by Afghan standards where suicide bombings and Afghans killing Afghans have ceased being news However not only the Taliban but the rather amorphous Islamic State of Khorasan – which is the Afghan chapter of the Islamic state – have outdone themselves in showcasing the ease with which they can commit havoc across the country Over the last seven days there have been seven severe attacks in six different parts of Afghanistan causing casualties in triple digits All of the attacks were against the security forces with the most serious against the police The most recent killed 15 cadets from the United States-funded Marshal Fahim Military School located on the outskirts of Kabul city Representational image Reuters While one source reported a Taliban claim of the attack this has yet to be uploaded on the Taliban website even though it did claim another attack in Shindand on the same day Clearly careful thought is being given to what is claimed in the group’s name and what is not as part of a carefully thought out military strategy that is being implemented days before the visit of US defencesecretary Rex Tillerson to Pakistan There is little doubt that there is a clear and expert military hand on the tiller of Afghan strategy Firstly their attacks methods have improved vastly accounting for a 35 percent spike in casualties of security forces according to United States sources The first use of stolen American Humvees was seen in early 2016 when they tried ineffectually to enter a police camp in Helmand Later Taliban tactics changed to one that sought to deliberately capture enemy equipment during raids By the end of the year broad estimates of the number of Humvees and Ranger pick up trucks that had vanished into Taliban hands had reached nearly a hundred It did not take long for their attacks to weave in the Humvees to the greatest effect On 19 October Taliban forces stormed an army unit in Maiwand and virtually destroyed the camp killing almost the entire unit of 60 Available reporting indicates that an explosive loaded Humvee was used to enter the camp and probably one more car bomb The tactic was a repeat of an attack on Paktia two day earlier against a police camp which killed 41 policemen and the Provincial police chief The Humvee has since become a favourite vehicle Not only does it make an excellent cover for Taliban dressed in Afghan army uniforms it creates a rain of shrapnel following a blast The fact that an American vehicle is used to wreak havoc is a good addition to flaunt to the media A second instance therefore of a fine military hand at work is in terms of Taliban media management Unlike the Islamic State the Taliban once used to destroy cell phone towers and claimed their attacks through spokespersons sometimes through a telephone or through the radio But that’s all in the past Their website is slick as are the videos of their prowess often refuting Afghan government claims to a ludicrous degree Cell phone towers are no longer targeted but used skillfully with cadres uploading their own videos during an attackwhile directing towers in the vicinity to stop their signals This means that the only information to come out of the area is from Taliban sources Another instance was during the Maiwand attack when a drone was used to film the whole episode to showcase Taliban military prowess The thumbing of the nose to the United States was also consistent An earlier video showed a Taliban fighter driving around in a Humvee and obviously having a great time There is still however a ‘split personality’ quality about Taliban propaganda and media strategy At one level their claims continue to be couched in ornate language reminiscent of period Soviet handouts On the other is the directed use of cell phone videos and drone footage to send a message The latter comes out from studios in Pakistan and the directing hand is therefore clear The third instance of direction as part of a strategy is the announcement of the holding of a meeting Quadrilateral Coordination Group (QCG) shortly after the visit of Pakistan army chief Qamar Bajwa to Kabul The QCG which is made up of the United States China Pakistan and Afghanistan held its first meeting in January 2016 with the avowed intent of ensuring an "Afghan-led Afghan-owned" peace process Shorn of the diplomatese the objective was to get Pakistan to deliver the Taliban for negotiations A revival of this forum just after the announcement of the new United States’ Afghan strategy is hardly a matter of chance The group met in Oman where it decided to pursue a strategy of "communication ceasefire and peace talks"?” said Riaz. in turn, when no one in the UPA government thought it necessary to

That is to sayas it happens in a vibrant argumentative democracythe knowledge acquired by Corporate India and individual departments in the government on the state of play in China was never really put together Insteadthey worked in silosconcerned with their own narrow interests and never agreed to a common set of long-term strategic objectives And all this whilethe tide from China continued to swamp India Its time India expanded its geopolitical view with respect to China So farsecurity has been the predominant concerngiven the long borders the two countries share and the rivals might Naturally thenthe focus has been on defence preparedness and infrastructure in border areas But now New Delhi must also strategise on how it exploits its own natural resources and boosts its industry These two issues impinge significantly on domestic politicsbecause both have the potential to generate large-scale employment that in the long run would raise incomes and reduce poverty Of coursethere are differences on what is the right strategy for boosting domestic industry One strong argument is to leave it to the marketor in other wordsdont do anything The other view is to build temporary walls and give time to industry to build stronger boats so that the rising tide can be managed Yet another view is to ask China to stop swamping us something that sounds adversarial The last view is best avoided with an emerging giant or superpower that also shares a long border with youit is only practical to opt for a collaborative approach The first view of letting the market forces play is definitely fashionable On the contrarybuilding walls will immediately sound protectionist It will be couched as going backward in timeeven regressive But the cost of not strengthening domestic industry or manufacturing given that it is getting more and more intricately linked with imports from China will only make India increasingly vulnerable to every small supply shock across sectors For
