Greek WW2 bomb forces huge Thessaloniki evacuation

(How else would you move people out if a new civilization penetrates Earth in that particular place? LM)

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-38944700
11 February 2017A policeman looks at the hole where the unexploded bomb was found in Thessaloniki. The bomb is is thought to be one of the largest from World War Two to be found in a Greek city. At least 70,000 people in the Greek city of Thessaloniki are being evacuated so that a 500lb World War Two bomb can be defused, officials say. It is thought to be one of the largest wartime bombs to be found in urban Greece in addition to being one of the largest mass evacuations. The bomb was discovered during road works last week and is due to be disposed of on Sunday. Officials say it is too degraded to tell if it is German or an Allied bomb. Residents within a radius of about 2km (1.2 miles) of the bomb will be compelled to evacuate the area between now and Sunday morning, security officials have said. A man walks next to a petrol station where the unexploded bomb was found in Thessaloniki. The bomb was discovered last week near a petrol station during work to expand fuel storage tanks. Military officers unload sacks of sand next to a hole in the ground (where a World War Two bomb was found in Thessaloniki. The military say they will initially try to defuse the bomb's detonator before taking the device in its entirety to an army firing range. The operation has been described by one blog as the biggest evacuation of Greek civilians in peacetime. However, it is not possible to verify such a claim. The military says an operation of this size and complexity is the first of its kind in a densely populated area of Greece and the disposal operation should take about eight hours - but may take as long as two days. About 1,000 police officers and 300 volunteers will be deployed ahead of the disposal operation. People in the city were warned to vacate their homes several days in advance. How much of a threat are unexploded bombs?
The evacuation is expected to cause considerable disruption in Thessaloniki, with about 450 residents of a refugee camp due to be among thousands of others being evacuated to schools, sports halls and cultural centres. The bomb was discovered last week near a petrol station during work to expand fuel storage tanks. A state of emergency has been declared in the three municipalities affected by the defusion operation, Thessaloniki's Deputy Governor Voula Patoulidou told the Associated Press. news agency. "It is the first time something like this is happening in Greece,'' he said. "The transfer of all residents is mandatory and we will go door-to-door to make sure everyone leaves." The military say they will initially try to defuse the bomb's detonator before taking the device in its entirety to an army firing range, where a decision will then be taken on how best to neutralise it. The city's bus terminal will be closed down while trains will also stop operating. There is also expected to be some traffic disruption in addition to interruptions to church services. One resident of the city told the Associated Press that the bomb was dropped by British and US planes targeting German rail facilities on 17 September 1944. German forces occupied Greece from 1941 until October 1944.

Ученые считают Землю космической тюрьмой

 (название - верно, но video - недалёкое, как всегда всё переврали, ЛМ)
http://earth-chronicles.ru/news/2017-02-12-101417
Ученые работающие в области изучения космического пространства и путешествий во Вселенной, считают нашу планету «космической тюрьмой». такое сравнение вполне обосновано, ведь человек не может сам по своей воле покинуть пределы Земли. Земля представляет собой космическую тюрьму для человеческой расы. Человечество, как и всё живое на Земле, появилось с большими затратами космической энергии. Сейчас же люди, сдерживаемые силами природы, не могут так просто покинуть Землю, став «узниками» несущейся в космическом пространстве «тюрьмы»... пока все мы остаемся узниками тюрьмы под названием Земля. 

Еxpats Careers. The difference between an expat and an immigrant?







http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20170119-who-should-be-called-an-expat
20 January 2017
The argument that it's not just executives and professionals, but also maids and other workers. As more of us live out the globalisation of world populations, as our travel behaviours change and our working habits shift to a more free-flowing, borderless and sometimes nomadic style, these definitions have had to be reviewed and revised.
“I use expat in a much broader sense of the word, describing rather someone who decides to live abroad for a specified amount of time without any restrictions on origin or residence,” Zeeck says. That includes an awful lot more people than just those sent on assignment with a multinational. Leave supporters cheer as the results come in at a EU referendum party in central London in 2016. Defining the impact
Changing definitions is one thing, but there’s still a large divide in the working conditions of, for instance, a banker in Geneva and a construction worker in Qatar. Qatar has come under fire for the working conditions of those building World Cup stadiums. For example, rights group Amnesty International claimed that construction workers at a World Cup stadium lived in squalid conditions, had wages withheld and passports confiscated. Following the controversy, Qatar has banned the controversial 'kafala' labour system that forced foreign workers to seek their employer's permission to change jobs or leave the country, though rights groups say this will do little to prevent abuses of workers in the Gulf state. But while there might be progress being made in Qatar and other countries — in Brazil, for example — there’s still a very real privilege gap between the people traditionally thought of as expats and those given different labels.

Whatever the moniker or motivation, most of us who move overseas to work do so in hopes of bettering our lives – whether the draw is money or experience, says Zeeck.
“We’re in the position to help shape this word — expat,” he says, “How we define it definitely helps with that.” Whether someone is an expat or not doesn’t depend on origin – it’s about the motivations behind their decision to move abroad, says Malte Zeeck, founder and co-CEO of InterNations, the world’s largest expat network, with 2.5 million members in 390 cities around the world. InterNations founder and co-CEO Malte Zeeck.
“Just calling everyone who lives abroad an expat won’t really change some political and socioeconomic realities,” he adds. While there are many types of expat with many different reasons to move abroad, “for people that we today call expats… living abroad is rather a lifestyle choice than borne out of economic necessity or dire circumstances in their home country such as oppression or persecution,” Zeeck says. “That’s what differentiates them from refugees or economic migrants and not their income or origin.”
Defining an expat is something Zeeck dealt with from Day One of InterNations. Immigrants are usually defined as people who have come to a different country in order to live there permanently, whereas expats move abroad for a limited amount of time or have not yet decided upon the length of their stay,” he says. In its early days, InterNations set out to reach assignees – often in management positions – sent abroad by their employers. But Zeeck quickly realised this traditional definition was too strict and arcane a way to consider this group. “Both groups of people, when they talk about expatriates, are talking about rich, educated, developed elites,” he says. “Others are just migrants or immigrants. But logically that’s not the correct way to look at these things. There’s probably more of these ‘others’ than there are of these highly expensive people but no-one thinks about them, no-one studies them. If they’ve studied them at all they’ve called them migrants. We’ve got migrants all wrong. That’s all wrong, Brewster says. Migrants, by definition “are people who intend to go and live in a county for a long time and they’re not allowed to. They have to go home when they’ve completed their assignment,” he says. “It’s not about the colour of your skin, and it’s not about the salary that you earn,” says McNulty, an expat researcher and senior lecturer at the school of human development and social science at SIM University in Singapore.
“Are maids expats? Yes they are. Are construction workers in Singapore that you see on the building sites expats? Yes they are,” she says. A business expatriate, she says, is a legally working individual who resides temporarily in a country of which they are not a citizen, in order to accomplish a career-related goal (no matter the pay or skill level) — someone who has relocated abroad either by an organisation, by themselves or been directly employed by their host country. City workers drinking at a British style pub in Boat Quay, Singapore. But in practice that’s not really how most of us define expat, both in academia and among the general population, says Brewster, a professor of international resource management at Henley Business School in the UK. But what makes one person an expat, and another a foreign worker or migrant? Often the former is used to describe educated, rich professionals working abroad, while those in less privileged positions — for example, a maid in the Gulf states or a construction worker in Asia — are deemed foreign workers or migrant workers. The classification matters, because such language can in some cases be used as a political tool or to dehumanise — as the debate around the word “migrant” suggests. Expats are defined partly by the temporary nature of their stay abroad. Fears surrounding job security, concerns over immigration and nationalism inspire discussion across the globe about who falls into which category. But a key part of this dialogue is how exactly we define different people who cross borders to work. In the last decade or so, many people, especially those of us from emerging economies such as Nigeria and Peru, have increasingly identified as not just citizens of one nation, but also as part of a global  citizenry, a BBC World Service poll found. But in richer nations, the survey found, the trend among industrialised nations “seems to be heading in the opposite direction.”  At times it seems globalisation is under siege from across the political spectrum. In the UK and the US, immigration and the movement of workers across borders were two of the defining political issues of 2016. In the UK, it was a key message for the Leave campaign in the EU referendum, which resulted in a public vote for a so-called Brexit. In the US, jobs and immigration were at the forefront of incoming President Donald Trump’s successful campaign. Weigh in on the question on Facebook: What makes a person an expat? Clarity and breadth. Dr Yvonne McNulty and Chris Brewster are two academics who have been trying to categorise such people — mostly to give a bit of clarity to human resource types who consider their hires expatriates. What is an expatriate, exactly? And when is an expat an immigrant — or not? The word expat is loaded. It carries many connotations, preconceptions and assumptions about class, education and privilege — just as the terms foreign worker, immigrant and migrant call to mind a different set of assumptions. It's front and centre currently as US President Donald Trump signed an executive order abruptly banning immigrants, short and long-term visa-holders and, for a time, green card-holders, from certain countries from entering the US.

The Rise of the Asian Expatriates













http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20170203-the-rise-of-the-asian-expat
6 February 2017
Expatriates from Asia are growing in demand over those traditionally from the West. Kate Mayberry explores this changing demographic trend. Wan Norafli Razali leaves the restaurant and strolls around to the left-hand side of his car to open the door. Then he remembers. He’s back home in Malaysia and the driver’s seat is on the other side. “See,” he chuckles. “I’ve been away a long time." The 38-year-old chemical engineer, who likes to be known as Afli, lives in Dubai with his family and works with the Lubrizol Corporation, an American oil-field services company. He’d always dreamed of a career overseas. After graduating from university in the United States in 2001, he worked in his native Malaysia before moving back to the US in 2006 when he got a job with oil services company Schlumberger. It wasn’t the full expat package, but he got a good salary, housing and transport, he says. “I wanted to live in the States forever,” he recalls, nibbling on some McDonald’s French fries. “I was living the American dream. The motivation was to work overseas and get as much experience as possible.” Wan Norafli Razali, a Malaysian expat (at left), worked on an oil rig in the Mediterranean off the coast of Alexandria, Egypt. A decade on, he works with expats from all over the world. “Your boss might be from South Korea, your engineer from China, your trainee from America and then you have the local Arabs. It’s quite a good blend.” Asia is just as likely to be a source of expatriates as Western Europe or North America. That’s a stark change to the past, when expats were typically Western middle-aged married males. Today, expats are just as likely, if not more so, to be Asian. The demographics of the typical expatriate employee [has] changed,” global location services firm ECA International noted in its 2016 Managing Mobility Survey. “Asia [is] just as likely to be a source of expatriates as Western Europe or North America.” The Eastern shift. It’s a trend that’s linked to the global expansion of Asian companies, which started when the Japanese ventured overseas in the 1980s. It picked up momentum after the 2008 financial crisis after China joined the fray. Asian companies are more likely to send staff overseas than Western companies. “Asian companies are more likely to send staff overseas than Western companies,” says Lee Quane, ECA’s regional director for Asia. “A Western company will probably send a handful of managers and recruit locally. Asian companies tend to send more staff, even at junior level. China is an obvious example but also Japan and Korea. They’ll send senior management, mid-management and even junior management and professionals. Part of that is about communication, but it is also a trust issue.” Many Asian companies — China, Korea, Japan and India — have what ChapmanCG, a global recruitment firm that specialises in HR roles, calls a “very strong local talent agenda.” In other words, they want to hire people from their own countries, train them and put the best of them in senior roles. In South Korea, international experience is seen as a prerequisite for promotion to the top jobs in major corporations. In South Korea, international experience is seen as a prerequisite for promotion to the top jobs in major corporations. In mainland China, the government is urging its biggest companies to expand internationally as part of its “Going Out Policy” — the result has been a slew of mergers and acquisitions, and Chinese companies opening offices in cities across the globe. Mostly, they are staffed by people seconded from headquarters in China itself. British expats watch Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee anniversary in New Delhi. The 'typical' expat – often thought of as a Westerner – is changing. A mobile workforce. As demand for Asian talent has increased, so Asians themselves are more willing than ever to go abroad in order to further their career. Global recruitment firm Hays Asia, which recently conducted a poll across the five Asian countries where it operates, found Singapore had the most globally mobile workforce, with 97% prepared to get a job overseas. Of those, 85% said they would leave for better job opportunities, career development and exposure. In China, 96% said they were prepared to leave for a position abroad, followed by Hong Kong at 94% and Malaysia at 93%. “Professionals seeking to gain a job overseas are aware that employers increasingly value local talent with international experience and an international mindset,” says Christine Wright, Hays Asia’s managing director. “When they return they can offer a combined globalised way of thinking, and experience of how business is done overseas, with local cultural understanding.” It’s an advantage
Eric Yap, 42, agrees. Yap studied electrical engineering at the University of Missouri, Columbia in the US and had planned to return home to Malaysia after he graduated.
But a study year he spent in Japan ended up setting him on a different path, and he joined Goldman Sachs’ IT division in Tokyo immediately after graduating. Now working with Amazon Web Services, he’s been there ever since. “I came to the conclusion that any sort of practical experience would likely be an advantage if I chose to return to Malaysia someday, especially [with] opportunities at global corporations in Malaysia,” he recalls over email. “However, I had never planned on staying this long in Japan.”
Many Asian companies want to hire people from their own countries, train them and put the best of them in senior roles abroad. Yap adds that he’s found that people who are multilingual (he speaks four languages) and who have the cultural sensitivity to work effectively with people from other countries are in ever greater demand. Matthew Chapman, chairman of ChapmanCG, agrees that those who’ve worked abroad have experience that is “highly sought after,” especially in Asia where economies are growing far more quickly than Europe or North America. There’s a lot more respect these days for the Asian way of doing things, and for global leaders who have spent time in Asia. “There’s a lot more respect these days for the Asian way of doing things, and for global leaders who have spent time in Asia,” Chapman says. “They are the ones who are going to get promoted. There is an appetite for strategies and ideas that are coming from the region.” His colleague, Foo Siew Chin, agrees. Since she returned to Singapore two-and-a-half years ago she says she’s noticed more Asian companies are talking about developing their own talent, rather than hiring outside. “It’s not just about Asians knowing Asia better, it’s also from a corporate and diversity perspective,” explains Foo, who works alongside Chapman. “When companies look at the leadership slate they are increasingly aware that they need to have a more diversified leadership team in Asia.” The changing profile of the expatriate also comes as companies become more mindful of the costs associated with expatriate postings. In many cases, “home” flights have been downgraded to economy rather than business, housing allowances are more likely to cover a flat rather than a house, and accompanying children may no longer have their school fees paid. In its survey, ECA found many of the Asian expats were on shorter assignments and that four of 10 travelled without their families. Dubai, where Wan Norafli Razali lives, is popular with expats from an array of nationalities and cultures. “A lot of companies are scrutinising the cost of expat packages,” says Chapman. “They are useful if there’s a critical gap that really cannot be filled in that jurisdiction. But the Asian talent base and the foreigner base on local terms has got a lot richer. There has got to be a really good reason to have a [traditional] expat on an expat package with the house, the flights and the car. In Dubai, Afli and his family expect to return home to Malaysia eventually, but wherever they move next, the decision is likely to be guided less by money and benefits, and more by family concerns. When you get older you have different objectives,” he reflects. “Before it was just the money, but when you have kids, its education, religion and your wife. Is she happy? If not, you’re not going anywhere.”

How expats cope with losing their identity

http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20161104-how-expats-cope-with-losing-their-identity
6 November 2016
After years away on a foreign posting, coming ‘home’ can be overwhelming and isolating. Here’s how many people cope with fitting back in. Last week, we identified an important, but often overlooked problem of being a long-term expat: how a foreign posting can affect your sense of identity, belonging and home. It prompted many of you to share your own enlightening and often surprising experiences of moving around the globe. In fact, so many of you identified with our writer’s dilemma that we thought we would both share your experiences and highlight your best tips when it comes to fitting in once you return “home” after a long stint abroad. Some people give up trying to force a connection to their homeland and identify as a citizen of the world. No place like home. In a Facebook comment, Wendy Skroch dubbed the phenomenon “reverse culture shock”. “There is a form of homelessness that goes with all this,” she wrote. “The sense of never being at home anywhere is very real.” Many people identified with the disheartening struggle to plant roots again upon returning home. Pete Jones, who left the UK in 2000 for a life in Denmark, Holland and Switzerland, wrote: “I do enjoy visiting Blighty for a few days and then feel the need to leave. It is not home anymore!” “I don't think I’ll ever feel Swiss but I do enjoy life here,” he continued. “Honestly, I don't know where home is anymore.” For some, it was the reaction from the people who were supposedly closest to them that made returning a lonely and difficult experience. “Returning home to the US after 26 years in Australia was quite a shock, wrote Bruce Felix. “Being the new guy in what was supposedly ‘home’ has been difficult at times.” For some, visiting 'home' can make them feel left behind by time. Having picked up new words and phrases but not an accent, he noted, communication in his homeland proved a challenge. “Without the accent, people just think you're odd.” After 20 years in America, Mary Sue Connolly felt she was treated as an outsider upon returning to Ireland. “I have changed and I feel labelled as a result.” “Reintegration is easier by not talking about your past [as] you could be considered as pretentious,” commented Denis Gravel. Allison Lee can identify. She has been back in Australia for three years following six years in Latin America and London. “It takes so much longer to make friends now... and no one wants to hear your stories.” Eunice Tsz Wa Ma, originally from Hong Kong, still experiences culture shock even though she returns to the city every summer. “Every time I go back I just feel as if I'm left behind by time [and] the only one still living in the past. Hi guys! Remember me? So after a long absence, how do you fit back in? Some of the tried and tested solutions were remarkably simple and practical. Avoid going back to a similar job on the same site with the same people if you can,” advised UK resident John Simpson. “There will be mutual resentment and their daily issues will seem trivial.” Vesna Thomas, who repatriated to Sydney after 16 years in the US and Singapore, found it hard to make friends in her late forties. Eventually she started a book club, worked part time and volunteered at a school. “Funny thing is, all my book club friends are expats. You are drawn to each other as they know what you are experiencing.” Indeed, some of those attempting to repatriate actively sought out expat communities. “This was helpful because I tended not to hang out with very many other Americans while abroad and I got to re-experience American culture through their eyes, making the adjustment a little easier,” wrote Alexis Gordon. Settling in to your home country can be a disheartening struggle. For others, coming home was like any another foreign posting.
“I decided to treat the repatriation experience as if it were another expat assignment, albeit a more familiar place where I know the language,” wrote Katrina Gonnerman. “That has helped me adjust. I've been away for 30 years [and] whenever I'm back in the US I deal with it as a foreign country, [and] marvel at the conveniences and ease of doing everyday tasks,” wrote Mark Sebastian Orr. How do you reintegrate? You don’t! Perhaps the most intriguing response to our request for reintegration tips was a resounding challenge of the question itself. Many readers found that resettling in your so-called homeland was difficult, but not entirely necessary. Nicole Jones has three passports and has lived in five countries. “I do not have rose-tinted glasses on for any place and can see the bad and good clearly. I feel I am a citizen of the world and am proud.” “You don't [reintegrate],” commented Paula Alvarez-Couceiro. “You realise that by having lived in so many different cultures, your personality and way of thinking has changed, and trying to adapt to what you were before you left is a mistake that will disregard the personal growth you have done.” These responses tell us that for many expats, defining homeland and identity is no straightforward task. For those struggling to reclaim their identity upon returning to their “passport home”, perhaps comfort can be found among these global citizens, for whom reintegration is an option, not an obligation.


Inside India's first department of happiness (that's to be seen, LM)


http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-38741238
30 Jan 2017
People receive certificates for participating in 'happiness programmes'. On a crisp weekday afternoon recently, hundreds of men and women, young and old, thronged a dusty playground of a government high school in a village in Madhya Pradesh state. Hemmed in by mobile towers and squalid buildings, the ground in Salamatpur was an unusual venue for a government-sponsored programme to "spread cheer and happiness". Undeterred by the surroundings and egged on by an energetic emcee, children in blue-and-white school uniforms, women in bright chiffon saris, and young men in jeans and t-shirts participated in games and festivities all morning. Under a tatty awning, people sprawled and a DJ played some music over crackling speakers. People left some food and old clothes for donation near a "wall of giving". On the field, children raced in gunny sacks. A dozen girls, hands tied to their back, sprinted to get their teeth into knotty jalebis, a popular sweet. Women, squealing with delight, competed in tug-of-war contests. Jaunty men from a dancing school vowed the crowd with hip-hop dance moves. A four-year-old girl provided a rousing finale with her Bollywood-style hip-swinging gyrations. At the end of it all, beaming participants received glossy certificates. On the dais crowded with officials and village leaders, there was mirthful insistence that "happiness week" had kicked off well. Videos and pictures of festivities from all over the state poured into the phones of excited officials: these included grannies tugging rope and grandfathers running with spoons in their mouths, among other things. A week-long 'happiness week' saw girls participating in jalebi races. happiness festival in madhya pradesh...and older villagers running with spoons in their mouth. The fun and games were part of a week-long Happiness Festival, organised by the ruling BJP government in what is India's second largest state, home to more than 70 million people. They also provided a glimpse of the rollout of what is the country's first state-promoted project to "to put a smile on every face". "Even in our villages, people are becoming introverted and self-centred because of TV and mobile phones. We are trying to get people out of homes, come together, and be happy. The aim is to forget the worries of life and enjoy together," said Shobhit Tripathi a senior village council functionary. 'Positive mindset'
At the heart of this project is the newly-formed Department of Happiness - the first of its kind in India - helmed by the state Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan himself.
The yoga-loving three-term 57-year-old leader of the ruling BJP believes the "state can help in ensuring the mental well being of its people". Under him a gaggle of bureaucrats and a newly formed State Institute of Happiness are tasked with the responsibility of "developing tools of happiness" and creating an "ecosystem that would enable people to realise their own potential of inner well being". The department also plans to run some 70 programmes and develop a Happiness Index for the state. Mr Chouhan, who taught philosophy in a local college before embarking on a successful career in politics, told me he had been thinking for a long time on how to "bring happiness in people's lives".
He then had an epiphany. Why couldn't his government run programmes to help citizens have a "positive mindset"? One report said that he was prodded by a popular guru. The tug-of-war games were keenly contested. Happiness day in Bhopal. Many village children participated in dances. There is more joy sometimes, Mr Chouhan told me, "being poor than being wealthy". But one wonders if people would be happy enough if the state was efficient in delivering basic services and be seen to be fair to all its people. After all, Madhya Pradesh continues to be among India's poorest states. More than a third of its people are Dalits (formerly known as untouchables) and tribespeople, among the most underprivileged. The world's worst industrial accident happened in the state capital, Bhopal, in 1984, killing hundreds of people, and thousands of survivors are still fighting for compensation. Despite impressive strides in farming, infrastructure and public services in recent years, illiteracy, undernourishment and poverty remain major challenges. When Mr Chouhan announced his plan last year, critics warned that the state would have to first deal with several "unhappy areas to make people happy".
Bureaucracy of happiness? Mr Chouhan agreed that providing food and shelter remained the primary responsibility of the state. But he said he was also worried about "families breaking up, rising divorces, and the increasing number of single people". He spoke about the anomie of modern life, and how unwieldy aspirations lead to "excess stress and result in high suicide rates". He said that the state, borrowing from religious texts and folk wisdom, can help spread the virtues of "goodness, altruism, forgiveness, humility and peace. We need people to have a positive mindset. We will try to achieve this through school lessons, yoga, religious education, moral science, meditation and with help from gurus, social workers and non-profits. It will be a wide ranging programme," he said. I wondered whether all this would spawn another gargantuan bureaucracy of happiness and invite allegations of cultural indoctrination by a government run by a Hindu nationalist party. Indian malnourished child, Viru (R) is comforted by his mother outside their hut at a village in Shivpuri district some 113 kms from Gwalior. Madhya Pradesh is among India's poorest states. Don't worry, Iqbal Singh Bains, the senior-most official in the department of happiness assured me. He's also the top bureaucrat in the energy department. "This is not about officials delivering happiness. This is not about preachy governance. You cannot deliver happiness to people. You can only bring about an enabling environment. The journey will be yours alone, the government is there to lend you a helping hand," he told me. Lending a hand would be more than 25,000 "happiness volunteers" who have signed up with the government. Government workers, teachers, doctors, homemakers and assorted people will work in the state's 51 districts, holding "happiness tutorials and programmes". Some 90 of them have already been trained. 'Inner demons'
Sushil Mishra is one of them. The 48-year-old school teacher, who lives and works in remote Umaria, has already conducted four hour-long happiness classes at a secondary school, a student's hostel, and government offices. The classes, as he tells me, essentially have turned into confessionals, where participants talk about their good and not-so-good deeds, and pledge to improve themselves. Mr Mishra says it's a challenge to create a relaxing, informal environment, where people can "wrestle with their inner demons. Then they can listen to the voice of their soul, they are in touch with inner feelings. Nothing is forced." Madhya Pradesh is not the first place to try to "spread happiness". But the jury is out on whether the state can play the role of a philosopher-counsellor-evangelist and make citizens happy. In this photograph taken on October 5, 2011, Chief Minister for the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh Shivraj Singh Chouhan (R) poses with a child at a function to honour. The 'happiness programme' is the brainhild of chief minister Shivraj.
Three years ago, Bhutanese PM Tshering Tobgay cast doubts on the country's popular pursuit of Gross National Happiness (GNH), saying that the concept was overused and masked problems with corruption and low standards of living. In 2013, Venezuela announced a "ministry of happiness", but it did not stop the country from descending into social and economic chaos. Last year, United Arab Emirates announced the creation of a minister of state for happiness to "create social good and satisfaction". Many like sociologist Shiv Visvanathan believe the state has no right getting into the business of spreading happiness. Happiness, they say, is no laughing matter and its relationship with ambition is complex. "The state cannot start defining what exactly contributes to mental well being. The state cannot colonise the subconscious. What happens to dissenting imagination or civil society? Trying to impose something as abstract as happiness on its people is not only bizarre, but downright dangerous," said Dr Visvanathan. Mr Chouhan obviously believes otherwise. In November, 24 of his ministers were sent five questions to find out how happy they were. A score of less than 22 meant that the respondent wasn't happy. Nobody knows the answers yet.

Venezuela reopens border with Colombia after eight days

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-38386694
21 Dec 2016
Long queues formed in the main crossing, linking San Antonio del Tachira in Venezuela to Cucuta in Colombia Venezuela has reopened its border with Colombia, eight days after President Nicolas Maduro closed it in order to combat smuggling. Hundreds of Venezuelans have been crossing into Colombia to buy products that are scarce in their country.
President Maduro had closed the border at the same time as announcing the withdrawal of the country's highest denomination bank note. He has accused criminal gangs of hoarding vast amounts of cash. Products subsidised by Venezuela's socialist government, including petrol, sugar and flour, can also end up being sold on the Colombian side of the border at much higher prices. Venezuelans mock 'useless' banknote. What is behind the crisis in Venezuela?
President Maduro and his Colombian counterpart, Juan Manuel Santos, agreed to the gradual reopening in a phone call on Monday. Up to 2,000 people are expected to cross from Venezuela into Colombia on the first day, according to Colombian RCN radio. "When I heard the news, I decided to come to the border crossing very early," Carolina Correa told RCN in the Venezuelan border city of Cucuta. "I need rice, sugar, a new pot and other ingredients for the Christmas meal, as well as medication for my mother," she added. Mr Maduro had argued the withdrawal of the 100-bolivar bill was vital to tackle "mafias" attempting to destroy the country. But the measure sparked chaos, with protests and long queues forming outside bank branches. The government was eventually forced to postpone the deadline for exchanging the notes until 2 January. Venezuela is facing a major economic crisis, which the opposition blames on the mistaken policies of its socialist government.

Meet the people leaving Trump's America

http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20170123-meet-the-people-leaving-trumps-america
24 January 2017
When they said they'd leave the country if Trump became US President, they weren't kidding. When people first started talking about Donald Trump running for president, Sarah thought it was a joke and not something she had to take seriously. But then on November 8, 2016, she says the “unthinkable” happened; Trump won the election. Sarah, who asked that we only use her first name because of the sensitive nature of the topic, immediately called her husband, who was out of the country on business, and told him, “That’s it.
I want to go, and I’m not kidding.” His response, she says: “I know. We can go.” So, next month, Sarah, 43, her husband, 45, and their two school-aged daughters will uproot themselves from the small Midwest town where they have lived for the past three-and-a-half years, and leave the US for a country thousands of miles away. They have no plans to come back. Many people talked about leaving the US if Trump was elected. Some are following through. During the most contentious election in recent US history, there was much talk around office kitchens, in coffee shops, at dinner tables, and in the press from people who said that they would leave if Trump were to win the presidency. The day after Super Tuesday, when 12 states voted in the Republican primaries in the US, Google announced that searches for the phrase “Move to Canada” were higher than at any other time in Google history. And, increased traffic to Canada’s immigration and citizenship website caused problems, giving site visitors the message: “You may experience delays while using the website. We are working to resolve this issue. Thank you for your patience." Some people have already left, or are making plans to leave. But once Trump did win, many people, including celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Amy Schumer, backtracked on their promise to leave, some because they couldn’t, some because they said that they had decided to stay and fight. Others dismissed their original comments as jokes. But there are, indeed, some people who have already left, are making plans to leave, or, in some cases, are delaying plans to returns to the US after stints abroad. Out of options
For Sarah and her family, it didn’t feel like there was any option other than to leave.  She says that she would have liked to “stay and fight” but that her family’s safety and ability to stay together are taking priority. Her husband is not from the US, does not have status as a resident and works overseas a lot. While their children are dual citizens of both the US and his home country, Sarah is a US citizen with permanent resident status in both.  Her husband has relied on temporary visas when he’s in the states with his wife and daughters. “It’s kind of a gamble of whether he’s going to rub someone the wrong way and not get in,” she says. “With the current administration changing, it’s a little bit more frightening.” During the most contentious election in recent US history, talk has mounted among about residents leaving the country. She considers her family lucky since they have the means and opportunity to leave. But she worries about the message she is sending to her daughters and she’s concerned about the people she is leaving behind. “What kind of example am I giving my kids just getting up and going when there are so many people here who can’t do that? Who is going to stay here to protect them and fight for them?”
Not everyone understands her decision, especially her father who voted for Trump. Sarah says she is sad to leave her friends but that they have been supportive. Many have said they would also leave if they could. But, not everyone understands her decision, especially her father who voted for Trump. “The ones who don’t get it are like ‘Good riddance,’,” she says. “And that’s exactly why we are going, because I don’t want to raise two girls when I don’t feel safe, and I’m putting their safety at risk.”
Changing political tide
For Cori Carl and her wife, Casey Daly, it wasn’t a matter of waiting to see who won the election. We decided we wanted to relocate to Canada. “[Even] before Trump was a serious candidate, my wife and I could feel the political backlash brewing against Obama and the liberal gains made in the past eight years,” says Carl. So they started looking into options outside of the US. “We decided we wanted to relocate to Canada,” says Carl. So, in January of last year, they moved to Toronto from Brooklyn, New York. Carl works remotely as a communications consultant, and Daly is an analyst with a multinational company with offices in North America and Europe. Having been with the company for 10 years, she was able to transfer to the Toronto office. Many people have misconceptions about the process and who is and who isn’t eligible for making the move north, says Carl.
“For the most part, you either qualify to move to Canada or you don’t. It’s fairly clear cut, since it’s based on a points system.” Best case scenario is if you are under 35 with an advanced degree and working as a professional or in a managerial role. In that case, “your chances are excellent,” says Carl. “You don’t need a job offer, although you’ll need to prove that you have some savings to support yourself while you look for a job.” The couple says they wanted to help others who might be having more trouble relocating than they did, and many were giving up in the process. To help, they launched a website to assist people trying to move from the US to Canada. Traffic to the site jumped 300% in November and “it jumps up whenever Trump tweets about something particularly ominous,” says Carl. They also penned the book Moving to Canada, which was released shortly before the election. Of course, website traffic doesn’t exactly mean results. Montreal-based Canadian immigration lawyer Marisa Feil has one client who left her position in the US following the election, taking a similar job at an affiliate organisation in Canada. But most of her other calls about relocating—she’s experienced a noticeable uptick in queries— have been enquiries without action so far. Most of the questions Feil says she receives are related to whether it generally requires an offer of employment to be able to immigrate to Canada or get a temporary work permit. “Most Americans are shocked to find out that they cannot just move based on their education and/or work experience,” she says. “Canada has moved to a system where most individuals immigrating have some connection to Canada either in the form of a job offer from a Canadian employer or having a family member in Canada that could help them find a job.” The other side of the planet
New Zealand Shores saw a big spike in its website traffic the day after the election; traffic increased 600%, according to Sarah Crome, an immigration specialist with the immigration consultancy based in Hamilton, New Zealand. Not everyone mentions Trump by name as the reason they want to leave, according to Crome, just the “political situation” in general. “I have talked to many clients who didn’t want Hillary either,” she says. The agency currently has about 150 US couples and families as clients, a number that is higher than in the past. “New Zealand is an appealing country for them at the moment,” says Crome. For Galina, a New Yorker living in Australia and working in property management, Trump’s win has meant a long delay for any plans she had to return to the US. “Now I am really not [going to] come back until I am sure that there is going to be an America left,” she says. Galina was an ardent Bernie Sanders supporter who asked that we only use her first name due to safety concerns. “Currently I don't believe that Trump is going to be a good president, much less a safe president. I'm worried that he’s going to run the country into the ground, piss off the wrong people and start a proper world war or a terrorist attack. He also gives America a bad name. Most Americans are shocked to find out that they cannot just move based on their education and/or work experience,” says immigration lawyer Marisa Feil. She says Australia’s government subsidised healthcare, the lack of guns, free education, and higher pay rate are other reasons she is choosing to stay. For Sarah, the move is not what she had envisioned for herself or her family. She says she is “totally heartbroken” and had always thought she would raise her two daughters in the US. “But I need to protect them,” she says. “I cannot in sound mind stay here when I have the option of going.”

The family fed up with being called 'wolves'

















http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-33978116
1 Sep 2015
Aceves and family swimmingImage caption Jesus Aceves (left) and other members of his family. Jesus Aceves was born with a rare condition that means he has thick hair all over his face. About 30 members of his family also have hypertrichosis making them almost certainly the hairiest family in human history. As a child, the thick, dark hair that covers his entire face quickly earned Aceves the nickname "The Little Wolf". He grew up in the small town of Loreto in north-west Mexico where, as a result of his appearance, his family was shunned by the local community. By the age of 12 he had started travelling from city to city to work at fairgrounds. One summer he sold tickets for a Ferris wheel, another year he ran a stall where people popped balloons to win prizes. It was there that a circus owner spotted him. Aceves (left) as a child with his familyImage caption Aceves (pictured left, as a child) is called Chuy by his family - a nickname often given to people called Jesus White line 10 pixels
"My life in the circus started when I was 13," Aceves says in Eva Aridjis's film, Chuy the Wolf Man. The circus owner asked if any other family members had the same condition - and by this time Aceves' two younger cousins, Larry and Danny, had also been born with hypertrichosis.
"The man said he'd pay us well and said he wanted all of us. He said he would house us and there'd be money. I said, 'Yes.'"
The three boys were signed up by the circus and spent several years travelling around Mexico where they used to greet the audience and have their picture taken. 
Accompanied by Aceves's mother, they always had somewhere comfortable to stay and plenty of food to eat but there was one thing that he didn't like.
"We were always locked up. They were presenting us as attractions so we couldn't be seen on the street. I didn't like that, being locked up so people wouldn't see us."
Aceves in a church: "I tell people, 'God made me this way'". As a young child, Aceves had wanted to hide away. He didn't like going outside and at school he was bullied by other children, who pulled his facial hair and called him names. But his self-esteem grew stronger as he grow older. Now, even at the age of 41, he has conflicting emotions of shame and pride in being who he is.
He says doesn't regret having worked in circuses. 
"It's not a bad place where you make money doing something bad. It's a decent job. As an artist you entertain people and make them laugh," he says.

But there was one tough time, touring the US with an American circus, when he became seriously depressed. Lonely, isolated, and unable to speak much English, he almost drank himself to death.
"I used to drink a lot of beer. I would never eat and my liver was killing me… I wanted to liberate myself with the drinking. But I was doing the opposite, I was destroying myself," he says.
Fortunately he pulled through and went on to perform in circuses all over the world. 
He learned to walk the high wire as part of an act in Coney Island's Sideshow and how to walk up a ladder of swords while travelling with the Circus of Horrors, which brought him to the UK in 2012.

Aceves had hoped to make enough money to set up a small business near the home he shared with his partner, Victoria, and youngest daughter, Araceli, in the state of Mexico. 
But their 10-year relationship broke down soon after his return from the UK and he's now back in the family home in Loreto, earning money by picking beans on a farm. 
Aceves and most of his family live in two houses, next door to each other, that were given to them by the mayor when Aceves and his cousins were young, because no-one would rent them a home. One house was for Aceves's mother and the other for Larry and Danny's mother. Today, each holds about 10 family members.

Aceves has three daughters, all of whom have been born with hypertrichosis. His eldest, Karla, is now in her early 20s. Her mother left when she was a baby and because her father was always away she was raised by her grandmother.
"It's harder for the women because it's less socially acceptable for a woman to be very hairy," says Eva Aridjis, who has made a documentary about Aceves and his family. "Most of the women have been abandoned by the non-hairy partners that fathered their children. But for the men, they are actually considered virile and tend to have a lot of girlfriends.
"Karla is the only one in the family who has finished high school but she still has a hard time finding work."
Karla
After giving birth to a baby, she was abandoned by the child's father.
"He's now in the US, in Texas, and she's a single mother," says Aridjis. Other cases of hypertrichosis. The earliest recorded case is Petrus Gonsalvus. Born in 1537 in Tenerife, he was exhibited at royal courts in Europe with his children who also had hypertrichosis.
Julia Pastrana from Mexico (pictured), could be distantly related to Aceves's family. Exhibited as an "ape woman" she married her manager and died shortly after giving birth in 1860. Her son lived only a few days longer. Her husband continued to tour with their embalmed bodies.
A woman called Krao was born in Thailand in 1876 and became the marvel of her age, touted as proof of Darwin's "Missing Link" between apes and humans.
Russia's Jo-Jo the Dog-Faced Boy was one of the stars of the American circus, Barnum and Bailey's. By the 1880s he had become one of the highest paid sideshow performers.
Aceves's great-grandmother was the first of his relatives to be born with excessive hair on her face. Now about half of his family have the genetic mutation.
"No-one's really sure what causes hypertrichosis, or how to cure it. What they do know is that there are about 50 documented cases in human history and it was my fate to be one of them," says Aceves. "We are the hairiest family of our species." 
In Aceves's family, the X chromosome appears to be the location of the mutation. "This means that for the men who have this mutation, all of their daughters will inherit it but none of their sons. And the women who have the gene, half of their children will also have hypertrichosis, regardless of whether they're male or female," says Aridjis.
"Scientists have studied Aceves and his family. They were particularly interested in this excess of hair because they wanted to find a cure for alopecia - for baldness. They know it's a gene that has laid dormant for a very long time which suddenly resurfaces, but they don't know how to turn it on or off." Aceves trimming his beard. Aceves trims the hair on his face and some of the women in his family shave their faces.. "The women tend to have beards and hair on their foreheads so it's a little sparser. For the men it's impossible to shave completely because they have hair on their nose and eyelids. They can't afford afford electrolysis or anything hi-tech," says Aridjis. While these other procedures, such as laser hair removal, would help reduce the total amount of hair, they would not permanently remove it. Aceves being photographed on the subway. Aceves has not done any circus work for a couple of years and says he has no plans to return to it in the future. He is now determined to ensure all the younger members of his family born with hypertrichosis get an education, and have the confidence to look for jobs beyond circuses, freak shows and "wolf" roles.
In the past, some of them have begun circus work before they can even walk. One of Aceves's nephews, Derian, was one year old when a circus owner came to their home to make an offer. Derian's mother, Gladys, had been adamant that her two sons would finish school, but with no partner to support her she made the difficult decision to let people stare and touch her son for a small fee.
She spent a few weeks travelling with a circus, presenting her little boy to the crowds as "Derian from the Wolf Boys".
Derian sitting on a toy horse with his mother
Aceves' cousin Danny, with whom he began his life in the circus, also continued with it and was taken on by a well-known clown who taught him acrobatics, how to swing on the trapeze, and his favourite discipline - the trampoline.

Another cousin, Eliud, is thinking about enhancing his circus act by growing his hair longer and replacing his incisor teeth with prosthetic fangs. One day he hopes to own his own circus.
Other family members, though, have succeeded in forging other careers. Aceves's sister Lilia was, until recently, a police officer in Zacatecas. And his cousin Larry now lives in San Bernadino in California, where he runs his own business renting out bouncy castles and other party equipment.
Lilia AcevesImage caption Aceves's sister Lilia 
All his life, Aceves has been compared to a wolf. Sometimes wolf howls follow him down the street. So a couple of years ago he went to a zoo near Mexico City in order to see one of the animals up close. 
"Both of our faces are covered in hair and we both live trapped - them in the zoo and me in this body," he says. "At least the wolves treat me the same as they treat other humans."

Islamic rape epidemic in Norway   May 27, 2012. Muslim immigrants are responsible for almost all rapes of white Norwegian women and about 95% of rapes of Western European women. At least one member of Parliament, André Oktay Dahl of the Conservative Party, calls the situation "critical" and is brave enough to acknowledge that many of the perpetrators come from cultures "with a reprehensible attitude toward women."

And it gets so much worse.

The scandalous fact is that Norway, for all its wealth, has chosen not to invest much in law and order. "Norway wastes millions of kroner every year on 'development aid' that ends up largely in the pockets of corrupt African dictators; it pours millions more into the pockets of non-Western immigrants who have become masters at exploiting the welfare system; the Norwegian government even funds anarchists. It's not entirely misguided for a Norwegian citizen to feel that his tax money is going less to fight the crime that threatens his home, his self, and his business than to support criminals." But beefing up the police force wouldn't even begin to address the problem that's at the root of the country's growing rape crisis: the presence in Norway, and especially in Oslo, of ever-growing numbers of people who have nothing but contempt for Western culture, who have absolutely no concept of respect for members of religions other than their own, and who have been brought up on the idea that women who dare to walk the street alone and without veils covering their faces deserve to be violated. Not so very many years ago, Oslo was virtually a rape-free city, inhabited by people who had been brought up on civilized notions of mutual respect and tolerance. No longer. Over the years, the incidence of rape has risen steadily. A wildly disproportionate number of the perpetrators are "rejected asylum seekers" - which may sound puzzling unless you are aware of the perverse state of affairs whereby even persons officially rejected for asylum in Norway are still allowed to stay. And the increasing temerity of the rapists -- who know very well that they will probably not be caught, and, if caught, will not be severely punished - is reflected in the fact that the most recent rape (in which two men assaulted a 21-year-old woman) took place virtually in the backyard of the Royal Palace. Oslo is, of course, not alone in having undergone this cultural sea change: many major cities in Western Europe have experienced similar transformations. Yet it now appears that the incidence of rapes in Oslo has now eclipsed that in the other two Scandinavian capitals, Stockholm and Copenhagen. This is quite an achievement, given that Oslo has traditionally been the smallest and sleepiest of these three cities - the least cosmopolitan, the one that feels more like a safe small town than a European capital. A glimpse of the official mentality that makes this steady rise in rape statistics possible was provided in an article that appeared in the Norwegian daily Dagbladet on October 25. It appears that in the summer of last year, the same paper ran a story about Abdi, a Somali immigrant, then 24 years old, who since coming to Norway as an asylum seeker had committed 14 robberies, been incarcerated, become a narcotic, and lived on welfare. On June 3, 2010, Dagbladet reported, an Oslo court had ruled that Abdi, who is not a Norwegian citizen, should be returned to Somalia. Now, however, that ruling has been overturned by an appeals court. Abdi's lawyer was jubilant, saying that this decision "is important for many Somalis in this country." (Of all immigrant groups in Norway, Somalis are among those with the lowest employment and highest crime rates.) The lawyer chided Norway for having shown "an ugly face in this case" by planning to return her client to Somalia, but she expressed hope that given the new decision Norway would "change its practice" - presumably meaning that no amount of unsavory activity would make it possible to kick an immigrant outю The appeals court's basis for its decision to let Abdi stay in Norway was that it might be dangerous for him to live in Somalia. Whether letting him stay in Norway might make life dangerous for Norwegians didn't seem to enter into the court's calculus. It's not only the courts, to be sure, that are at fault in this sort of situation. In such cases, the media almost invariably step in and bombard the public with shameless propaganda designed to stir up sympathy for the miscreant in question. So it was with the Dagbladet article the other day, which sought to present Abdi as repentant, reformed, and reflective - indeed, almost sagacious and saintly. He was represented as having claimed that he has turned over a new leaf and that he now wants to help wayward immigrant kids to straighten out. He also supposedly said that he wants to study to be a sociologist (which, the more one thinks about it, sounds potentially even more dangerous than if he decided to persevere in his life of crime).


A new migration route - cycling from Russia into Norway









http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-34602208
23 Oct 2015
Hundreds of migrants have cycled into Norway from Russia after finding a new route into Europe that avoids the deadly Mediterranean crossing. They are not allowed to cross the Arctic border on foot, so a lucrative trade in bicycles has opened up, with migrants buying bikes and pedalling the final few metres. Fahed half squats and uses the palm of his hand to show me the height of the bicycle he rode across Russia's border with Norway. At full height he is about 5ft 10in tall but the hand he is gesturing with is about level with his knee. 
"You rode a children's bicycle?" I ask. 
"Yes, yes," He replies. "One for kids." 
He smiles and then starts to laugh before taking another drag on his cigarette. He is from Algeria and speaks in broken English. He is one of an increasing number of refugees travelling overland into Russia and then north into the Arctic Circle to the point where the borders meet. In the whole of 2014 just seven asylum seekers crossed over the Storskog border crossing. In October alone there have been 1,100. Some are from Iraq, Afghanistan and Lebanon but most are from Syria. 
They need a bicycle because the Russian authorities don't let people cross the Russian border on foot. Under Norwegian law, it is illegal for a driver to carry people into the country without the proper papers.
The Russian route
Fahed tells me he paid $200 (£130) for his bike when he arrived in Murmansk. He looks pleased with himself when he adds that the price included the taxi ride up to border crossing point - what he described as a "package deal". It's then that he made his one and only journey on his new purchase - cycling just 120m (130 yards) across the no-man's land between Russia and Norway. Not taking into account the cost of the taxi ride, that works out at $1.60 per metre - probably one of the most expensive journeys in the world. But he has no regrets. He says it's a "small price to pay" to get to Europe. All the asylum seekers are temporarily housed in the small nearby town of Kirkenes, which is hastily having to build a new reception centre to accommodate 500 more people. The authorities take them from the border to the town by bus, so the bicycles get left behind at the border. 
Bikes stacked up in the town
Most were made for children. A hundred or so are neatly stacked against the back wall of the border police's customs office, and these are just the bikes that have been collected over the past two days. Many are brand new. There's not a speck of rust on the chrome handle bars. Some still have protective bubble wrap on the frames, presumably from the factory where they were made, to stop them getting scratched.  What little sunlight there is bounces off the massed ranks of reflective mud guards. But this is a bicycle graveyard. Every two or three days they are collected up, taken away and crushed. It seems like a terrible waste - until the chief of the border police Stein Hansen takes a pair of handle bars in his bare hands, and with very little effort twists them into a u-shape. He wishes the bicycles could be put to some use, he says, but by Norway's standards they are not fit for the road. 
Crossing the border
There's something slightly comical about seeing men on bicycles that are way too small for them. Once they pass a red and green stripped marker post, they are officially out of Russia. Freewheeling for a few more feet past the yellow barrier, they make it into Europe. 
Family leaving Russia
As I watch, a young family appears, laden with luggage and carrying a baby. Exceptions can be made to the "no walking rule", it appears, as both the mother and father are on foot. Presumably their precious cargo gives them special dispensation. However, each of them is also wheeling a bicycle with their free hand, so presumably this makes them cyclists and not pedestrians in the eyes of the law. The reality is right now none of them care how absurd the rules are, nor how strange this looks. The authorities here believe the numbers coming over can only grow. Although the cold, wet landscape couldn't be more different than from the ones the migrants left behind, this Arctic road stays open, even in winter. Meanwhile the Mediterranean route - never safe - becomes even stormier.

Migrant crisis: Thousands of new reception places agreed





http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34634214
26 Oct 2015 
A man holding a baby disembarks from a dinghy after arriving from a Turkish coast to the northeastern Greek island of Lesbos, Sunday, Oct. 25, 2015. Greece will have room to welcome 50,000 more migrants by the end of the year. Another 100,000 spaces in refugee welcome centres will be created under a deal agreed by European leaders at an emergency summit in Brussels. The heads of 11 EU states and three non-EU countries met to discuss how to handle growing number of migrants. More than 9,000 migrants arrived in Greece every day last week, the highest rate so far this year. Under the deal, Greece will open reception centres with enough room for 30,000 migrants by the end of the year. The UN's refugee body, the UNHCR, will provide another 20,000 spaces in the same time. It will also add reception centres with another 50,000 spaces in Balkan countries, which are the most popular routes north for migrants looking to travel north to Germany and Scandinavia. Also as part of the deal, leaders also agreed to:
 - within a week, send 400 police officers to Slovenia, which has struggled with arrival numbers;
 - "discourage" the movement of migrants to neighbouring countries' borders "without informing neighbouring countries";
 - appoint contact officers who can submit information on migrant numbers to other countries and authorities. "This is one of the greatest litmus tests that Europe has ever faced," said German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Greece migrant arrivals  - 47,985 people reached Greek islands between 17 and 21 October
50,000 new places to be created in Greek welcome centres by January 
50,000 more spaces to be created in neighbouring countries 
60,000 people reached Slovenia in past 10 days.
Smaller countries along the Balkan route say their resources are stretched by the number of people arriving. Bottlenecks have also been exacerbated in part by Hungary closing its borders with Serbia and Croatia, forcing migrants to seek alternative routes north. Their journeys have been aided by governments who have helped them move to camps or on to the next border. Before the talks, Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic dismissed requests to stop moving migrants on.
"That is impossible, whoever wrote this does not understand how things work and must have just woken up from a months-long sleep," he said. "Waving them through has to be stopped and that is what is going to happen," European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said after the summit. Mr Milanovic and Slovenian President Borut Pahor had said Sunday's talks would be a success only if they agreed to stricter restrictions on migrants travelling from Turkey to Greece. But no firm new measures on that front were agreed. There was grumbling, there was pleading, and there were several sharp retorts. It was sometimes hard to remember that all the leaders who turned up here today professed to want the same thing: an end to the chaos that increasingly marks the migration route through the Western Balkans. They don't agree on the way to do it. Even before the meeting began, Croatia's prime minister Zoran Milanovic labelled the plan "unrealistic"; drafted by someone "who had just woken up from a months-long sleep". The solution, he said, lay in Turkey and Greece. It's a sentiment echoed by many of the leaders here today - that without action from Turkey in stemming the number of people crossing its border into Greece, anything else is just tinkering around the edges.






Scary information about Zombies, that have been widely popular in movies and on Internet, is presenting Zombies (or Minions), who had only one Human life, after being animals. For them it is their next step in Evolution. Robert Monroe called them "Wild Ones" and wrote about them in "Far Journeys". There are also many types of Human/Alien Hybreds , sometimes it is difficult to become a Human straight after being a dragon or other reptilian/sirian: the difference is too great, so it is a gradual process. The body of a Hybred needs to go through many stages of their transition into a Human, otherwise Females die when giving birth to them. When they become more and more looking like Humans, they have abilities to hypnotise Humans! But I wouldn't be surprised, if all of us have a Hybred as one of our Parallel Personality (Alter). 
On a picture above a reptilian-human Hybred (african king) is sitting next to Human Female (she looks more like his captured slave than a wife).
Below there is an extract about the Wild Ones (Zombies) from "Far Journeys" by Robert Monroe, p. 240 - "The Wild Ones". And also the address of an article about the Wild Ones or Zombies or Minions, those, who had first life on Earth as a human, after being an animal. The content of this article is on : "Far Journeys" by Robert Monroe

"Much lesser in number, than the above, but with the same motivating drives expressed in an entirely different manner. The reason is a slight Shift in Awareness. The Wild Ones do not realize they have lost the use of their physical bodies, and they do not perceive anything other, than Physical Matter Reality. However, they are very much aware, that they are somehow different. They don't understand the whys or hows of it and have no desire to learn. All they realize is, that such difference releases them from all of the restraints, obligations, and commitments, that were a part of their physical lives. They construe this as absolute freedom and attempt to express themselves accordingly in the only way they know of—through replicas of physical activity. Thus their efforts to participate in physical human life—which they perceive, as taking place all around them, — take on many bizarre forms. The previously reported visit to the 'Human Sexual Pile' is a sample. There are implications, that whenever a Human Physical Consciousness in waking form becomes "loose" or shaky for whatever reason, it may provide an opportunity for one of these to "piggyback" (go after you, LM) just for the experience of it. The frequency of such incidents is not known, from my present perspective. Hopefully, very few. They can get mean at times."

Australia under pressure to boost total refugee intake

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-34171019
7 September 2015
Some members of Mr Abbott's party want to increase the number of refugees Australia accepts . Australia's Prime Minister Tony Abbott is under pressure to increase the country's total refugee intake.
Mr Abbott has said more Syrian asylum seekers would be let in but has stopped short of boosting overall refugee numbers.
But members of his own party, including several state premiers, have called for more to be done for refugees.
Assistant Treasurer Josh Frydenberg on Monday called for temporary housing of Syrian and Iraqi asylum seekers.
Mr Frydenberg said there was a good case for a Kosovo-type solution that would see Syrian and Iraqi refugees housed in Australia, then returned home once the countries were safe.
The Federal Opposition on Monday called for 10,000 additional places for refugees from the Middle East, with priority to be given to those from conflicts in Syria and Iraq. 
Opposition Labor leader Bill Shorten also said the government should spend an extra $A100m ($69m; £45.6m) on aid for refugees.
The Liberal Premier of Australia's most populous state, New South Wales, Mike Baird, on Saturday challenged Mr Abbott to do more than just stopping refugees making their way to Australia by boat. 
Reacting to a photo of a Syrian child refugee recently found drowned on a Turkish beach, Mr Baird said he felt "sick with overwhelming sorrow" about the situation.
Mr Baird, a close colleague of Mr Abbott's, said it was a great thing that Australia was no longer seeing children drowning at sea after trying to get to Australia by boat with their families. 
"But stopping the boats can't be where this ends ... I believe we should do even more. And we should do it now," he said, adding that he would talk to the Federal government about what could be done.
Australia detains any migrants trying to reach its shores by boat, and takes them to offshore processing centres to be resettled elsewhere.
Last week, the New York Times described the policy as "brutal".
'Open door'
The lightly-populated island state of Tasmania has also said it would accept an extra 500 refugees, with Liberal Premier Will Hodgman declaring "our door's open".
Australia has accepted about 4,500 people fleeing Syria's conflict, under its current commitment of 13,750 refugees for 2015.
Mr Abbott has claimed Australia is "already the most generous country in the world on a per capita basis when it comes to dealing with refugees through the UNHCR".
Several organisations have challenged that claim.
'Awful imagery'
During a press conference on Sunday, the Prime Minister spoke of how horrified he was by the image of the drowned Syrian boy. "No parent could fail to be moved by what we saw," he said. "I have asked the Immigration Minister Peter Dutton to go urgently to Geneva to talk to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees on what more Australia can do to assist on the migration crisis that is being driven by the problems in the Middle East," he said.

Migrant crisis: Germany to release funds to help regions cope - video







http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34171161
7 Sep 2015
A look back at 48 hours in Munich's railway station. Germany's coalition government has agreed to spend €6bn (£4.4bn) to support record numbers of migrants and other measures to deal with the influx. Critics at home have accused Chancellor Angela Merkel of creating a dangerous precedent by opening Germany's borders. About 18,000 migrants arrived over the weekend after an agreement with Austria and Hungary to relax asylum rules. But Austria's Chancellor Werner Faymann has said the emergency measures must come to an end. He said they would move step by step "towards normality", after speaking to Chancellor Merkel and the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Sunday. Hungary had previously blocked migrants travelling to Western Europe, but dropped restrictions on Friday and shuttled people to the Austrian border. The flow shows no sign of easing, with crowds still streaming across Hungary's border with Serbia. Officials in Germany say thousands more migrants are expected to arrive later.
'Migrants want German life'
Speaking on Monday, Mr Orban said "as long as we can't defend Europe's outer borders, it is not worth talking about how many people we can take in".  Mr Orban said those migrants trying to reaching Germany were seeking a "German life" not physical safety, adding that if the stream continued it would endanger Europe's "Christian welfare states".  Migrants cross the border from Serbia into HungaryImage copyright Getty Images Image caption Thousands took advantage of an easing of restrictions to travel towards Western Europe A migrant child waves from on board a trainImage copyright AFP Image caption An estimated 18,000 migrants reached Germany over the weekend Migrants sit in a car, on their way through AustriaImage copyright Reuters Image caption Some were driven by a volunteer convoy. Germany's announcement of extra funds came after talks on Sunday night between the two parties which make up Chancellor Merkel's coalition.
The government has agreed to give €3bn ($3.3bn; £2.2bn) to the federal states and local councils, with a further €3bn to fund federal programmes such as benefit payments.
Specific measures announced include:
A building programme to increase the number of places in reception centres for asylum seekers, suitable for winter months, to 150,000
An extra 3,000 federal police officers
Replacing cash allowances paid to asylum seekers in reception centres with benefits in kind
More money for integration and language courses
Kosovo, Albania and Montenegro will be added to the list of "safe" countries, meaning asylum seekers from those nations can be deported more rapidly. The agreement stressed the need for "solidarity" and "a fair distribution" of refugees between EU states. What can the EU do?
Key video - What is the UK doing to help?
Germany expects to receive 800,000 refugees and migrants this year, and wants to see the rest of Europe do more to help. But while Mrs Merkel has become a hero to many migrants and their supporters, conservative allies said she sent a "totally wrong signal" by allowing in the intake from Hungary. The interior ministry said the decision was an exception to help avert a humanitarian crisis. New arrivals in Germany were welcomed by smiling and cheering members of the public at train stations across the country. Firemen stand by temporary accommodation for refugees in Rottenburg am Neckar, Germany - 7 September 2015Image copyright AFP Image caption There was a fire at a housing site for refugees in western Germany on Sunday night. However, there were two fires overnight at accommodation centres for asylum seekers. Five people were hurt in a fire at a centre in Rottenburg in the south-western state of Baden-Wuerttemburg; it is not known what caused it. A second fire, at accommodation being renovated to house asylum seekers in Ebeleben in the central state of Thuringia, was caused by "politically motivated arson", police said. Both states have seen a spate of arson attacks on asylum seekers' accommodation in recent weeks. Syrians are the largest group travelling, followed by Afghans and Eritreans. A rift has developed within the EU over how to deal with the crisis. Hungary has accused Germany of encouraging the influx, and is pressing ahead with plans to tighten border controls and could send troops to its southern frontier if parliament agrees. It has opened a new reception camp for migrants in the southern border village of Roszke, and is due to finish its border fence this month. UN refugee chief Antonio Guterres said the crisis was "manageable" if member states could agree a joint plan.

Europe's migration crisis produced more scenes of chaos and distress in Hungary on Thursday after police tried to force migrants off a train at a refugee camp. The refugees had believed the train was heading for the Austrian border, but it stopped at Bicske, west of the capital Budapest. Hungarian officials wanted to formally register all those on board, but as Gavin Hewitt reports, there were some distressing scenes as many of those on board refused to move.

lan Kurdi death: A Syrian Kurdish family forced to flee - 2 videos







8http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34141716
4 September 2015
Abdullah Kurdi lost both his sons, Alan and Ghalib, in the waters off Turkey. The drowned boy who washed up on a Turkish beach on Wednesday, whose picture cut through the refugee debate in an instant, was three-year-old Alan Kurdi from Kobane in Syria. Alan set out before dawn that morning in Turkey for the Greek island of Kos with his father Abdullah, mother Rehanna, and five-year-old brother Ghalib. The Kurdis wanted to reach Canada to reunite with Abdullah's sister Tima, a hairdresser in Vancouver.  The family joined with a small group of refugees in Bodrum to attempt the 4km (2.5 mile) crossing to Kos. Abdullah texted his sister Tima from the beach to say they were leaving. "I passed the message to my dad in Syria," she said, "Abdullah is leaving now, pray for his safety."
But her prayers went unanswered. The two small boats were hit by high waves minutes after they set off and the captain fled. Abdullah Kurdi found himself fighting to save his two young boys. Of the 23 people in the group, 14 are believed to have died, including Abdullah's wife and sons. It was, tragically, not a high number in a summer scarred by mass deaths in the Mediterranean, but the images that emerged set the incident apart. Having floated back to Turkish shores, Alan was pictured lying face down in the sand, his body terribly small, dressed in a red shirt, blue shorts and velcro shoes. In another picture he was seen cradled in the arms of the guard who carried him away. His name has been spelt 'Aylan' by much of the media, including the BBC, but his aunt Tima told us today that this was a Turkish version of the name given by Turkish officials - his Kurdish name was Alan.
Abdullah Kurdi: "My children were the most beautiful children in the world".
As Syrian Kurds, the Kurdis' chances of being granted asylum in Canada were hampered from the moment they set out for Turkey. For many years, Syria denied its Kurdish population citizenship and Kurds were regarded as stateless by the authorities. A decree in 2011 allowed some to apply for citizenship but others were ineligible and many were forced to flee before they could apply. The Kurdis had been living in Damascus until the early stages of the Syrian conflict in late 2011. When the violence in the city escalated, they relocated back to Makharij village, 25km outside the northern town of Kobane. When Kobane became a flashpoint in the conflict between Kurdish fighters and Islamic State militants in late 2014, the family fled along with tens of thousands of others for Turkey. But while crossing Turkey's open border gave them refuge, it did not give them status. Undated image taken from the internet of Kurdish brothers Aylan and Galip Kurdi aged three and five respectively,Image copyright Agency Image caption Alan (L), three, his brother Galip, five, and their mother died trying to get to Greece by boat this week. Turkey was the first of Syria's neighbours to respond formally to the refugee crisis, declaring a temporary protection policy in October 2011 that guaranteed no Syrian refugees would be sent home.  Under the policy, those with passports are given a year-long residence permit and are free to move. But those without documents are obliged to register at a refugee camp and stay there, or they are "irregular" - living illegally outside of camps. This is the situation the Kurdis found themselves in, staying in Istanbul but desperate to leave Turkey. Such people are in a kind of limbo - unable to obtain exit visas from Turkey because they lack passports and unable to win asylum elsewhere because they lack exit visas. Tima Kurdi had sponsored a "G5" private asylum application for the family of her other brother, Mohammad. Financial constraints and the complexity of the process meant she had to tackle one family at a time - Mohammad was chosen first because he had school-age children. But the application was rejected by Canadian immigration authorities. Canada's Department of Citizenship and Immigration told the BBC the application was "incomplete as it did not meet regulatory requirements for proof of refugee status recognition".
"I can't even imagine how my brother feels", the boy's aunt said. The reason for the rejection was simple, said Tima; the Kurdis had no passports and no Turkish work permits - documents they were unable to retain. When the first asylum application was rejected in June, "there was no hope" of Abdullah and his family obtaining the correct paperwork for a successful application, she said. And so they headed for the coastline. The Kurdis had made three previous attempts to leave Turkey before their fourth and final, family members told the BBC. On the fourth attempt, they worked with people in Izmir to get them to the coast and then on to Kos by boat. They are believed to have paid €4,000 (£2,900; $4,400) for the crossing - several times the cost of an airfare to Canada for the whole family. Abdullah Kurdi, father of three-year old Aylan Kurdi, cries as he leaves a morgue in Mugla, Turkey, September 3, 2015.Image copyright Reuters Image caption Abdullah Kurdi tried desperately to save his wife and two young sons. Under darkness, the family's boat was pushed out into the waves. Within minutes they were in trouble. In heartbreaking detail, Abdullah described the moment his young family drowned. 
"I tried to catch my children and wife but there was no hope. One by one they died," he said. 
"I tried to steer the boat but another high wave pushed the boat over. That is when it happened. Is there anybody in the world for whom their child is not the most precious thing?
"My kids were amazing. They woke me everyday to play with me. I would love to sit next to the grave of my family now and relieve the pain I feel."
He said he intends to fly his family to Istanbul and then home to Kobane, where he will bury them.
"It is too late to save Abdullah's family," said Tima. "Please let's use our collective voices to make change and demand that our world leaders take action now to pass emergency refugee measures. Let's put an end to this suffering. Our hearts have been broken."


10 moving photos of Europe's Migrant Crisis




http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-34137358
4 Aug 2015
The photographs of a three-year-old Syrian boy found dead on a beach in Turkey are among the most powerful to have emerged from Europe's migrant crisis. But many other moving pictures have been taken over the years, illustrating the dangers of the migrants' journey, and sometimes the treatment they have received on arrival in Europe. Here are 10 that have had a strong impact. Isa and Ibrahim, both from Mali, being pulled from the water.



1. Juan Medina was working as a photographer for a local paper in the Canary Islands in 2004 when yet another small boat arrived, packed with men from sub-Saharan Africa. As a Spanish Civil Guard patrol approached, it capsized and nine men drowned. Medina photographed two of the 29 survivors, Isa and Ibrahim, both from Mali, as they were pulled from the water. The shot won him a World Press Photo award the following year. Tourists help a migrant boy on La Tejita beach, Tenerife.



2. The Canary Islands was still one of the main destinations for African migrants two years later. By this stage the boats were often leaving from Mauritania or even Senegal, instead of Morocco - a perilous journey across 1,000km of the Atlantic. Many people arrived starving and dehydrated. This photograph taken on Tenerife's La Tejita beach shows tourists trying to help a young boy, and earned Arturo Rodriguez a World Press Photo award in 2007. 
Golfers and migrants in Melilla.



3. Two tiny Spanish enclaves on Morocco's Mediterranean coast, Ceuta and Melilla, exercise a magnetic attraction for people trying to reach Europe. Here the continent is just a razorwire fence away. Jose Palazon, who works for migrant rights group Pro.De.In Melilla, took this picture of one golfer in mid-swing, while another gazes at a group of men (and one policeman) perched on the fence. "It seemed like a good moment to take a photo that was a bit more symbolic," he told the El Pais newspaper.



4. 
Migrants with mobile phones on the beach in Djibouti. Migrants passing through Djibouti, on the Gulf of Aden, sometimes save money by buying a SIM card from neighbouring Somalia on the black market. Photographer John Stanmeyer met a group of them standing on the coast waiting to catch a faint signal. "It communicated the universality of all of us," he says. "We really are standing at a crossroads of our collective humanity. Where are we going? What does it mean to be human?" The photograph won a World Press Photo award in 2014.
5. By the time migrants reach the Mediterranean, most have already completed a gruelling journey over land. In the heat and dust of this desolate spot on the Syrian-Turkish border, Murad Sezer of Reuters would normally have encountered crowds of families with wailing children. But on one of his visits it was quiet - empty except for an abandoned child's cradle. "For me, it signified a kind of hopelessness," he says. "If its owners had felt hope, perhaps they would not have left it."




6. 
Migrants on a boat near the Libyan coast. Massimo Sestini took this photograph from an Italian navy helicopter in 2014, but it was in fact a repeat of a shot he had taken in identical circumstances the year before. The new photograph, taken between Libyan and Italy, showed that nothing had changed - but was also more striking. "I thought if I could get the right angle straightaway, directly above 500 people who have spent five days and nights on a boat, they would probably all look up, ask for help, wave - so this year I thought I'd try again and it worked." The shot won a World Press Photo award earlier this year. Antonis Deligiorgis and Wegasi Nebiat.



7. In April this year a wooden sailing boat carrying Syrians and Eritreans smashed on rocks as it attempted to land on the Greek island of Rhodes. Greek army sergeant Antonis Deligiorgis, who was having a coffee with his wife on the seafront, dived into the waves and rescued 20 of the 93 people on board singlehandedly. One was Wegasi Nebiat, a 24-year-old Eritrean, pictured being brought ashore by Deligiorgis, on the left of the picture. Another, a pregnant woman who later gave birth in Rhodes general hospital, told staff she would name her son after the man who had saved her. Laith Majid, holding his son and daughter in his arms.



8. This photograph shows a Syrian man, Laith Majid, holding his son and daughter in his arms, after a journey from Turkey to the Greek island of Kos in an inflatable boat that been steadily losing air. "An entire country's pain captured in one father's face," tweeted @MaryFitzger, after it was published in the New York Times. "I am overwhelmed by the reaction to this family's tears of relief. This is why I do what I do," wrote German photographer Daniel Etter.

Refugees and riot police on Greece-Macedonia border. When Macedonia closed its border to migrants last month, after declaring a state of emergency, thousands spent a night in no-man's-land. The following morning they tried to push through police lines, leading officers to fire stun grenades into the crowd. AP photographer Darko Vojinovic captured this young father's despair. In the previous three weeks 39,000 migrants had been registered as they passed through the country en route for Serbia, and then Hungary - a member of the European Union. "Just unbelievable that Europe, with all its wealth, can't come up with a better response to refugee crisis than this," tweeted @danielsilas.

Abdul pen seller of Beirut. This photograph went viral on social media a week ago. Who was the desperate man selling pens to support his family in the Lebanese capital Beirut, and how could people help him? He was quickly identified as Abdul Halim Attar, a Palestinian refugee from Yarmouk in Syria - and a crowd-funding campaign was launched on Indiegogo. It has already raised $181,000. Attar was overcome when he was told about the fund, says Gissur Simonarson, an Icelander who posted the original viral tweet. Attar's goal is to set up an education fund for Syrian children - and to return home from Beirut as soon as this becomes possible.

Migrant crisis: Hungary train standoff enters second day

4 Aug 2015
Many on board the train stayed there overnight after resisting being removed by Hungarian police. A tense stand-off between police and migrants on a train in Hungary is continuing into a second day.
On Thursday, police let the migrants board the train in Budapest but then tried to force them off at a refugee camp to the west of the capital.
Hungarian MPs face a key vote later on whether to tighten border controls as migrants try to pass through to their preferred destination, Germany.
Three other European meetings on Friday will discuss the migrant crisis.
Members of the European Commission are also flying to the Greek island of Kos to examine the difficulties caused by the large numbers of refugees and migrants landing there.
'Ashamed'
The Hungarian MPs will also vote on creating new holding camps for migrants, and on whether the situation constitutes a state of emergency.
Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Thursday described the situation as a "German problem" as Germany was where those arriving in the EU "would like to go".
Hungary's prime minister says the migrant crisis is "a not a European problem, it is a German problem"
However, Luxembourg's Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn - who is heading the EU meetings on the crisis - criticised Hungary's conservative leader on German television on Thursday night, saying: "One sometimes has to be ashamed for Viktor Orban."
European Council President Donald Tusk said at least 100,000 refugees should be distributed across EU states - a sharp increase on a previous European Commission target of 40,000.

Migrant crisis: the volunteers stepping in to help









http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34130639
3 September 2015
Helpers sort through aid that has been donated for migrants at Munich"s central railway station in Munich, Germany, 02 September 2015. Volunteers are giving their time to sort food donations for refugees at Munich's Central Station. 
George Chertofilis was an ordinary physics teacher looking forward to a long summer holiday when the dinghies began to arrive, one after another, on the Greek island of Kos. Before long, hundreds of migrants were landing on the island every day. In sight of Turkey's coast, Kos has become one of the first ports of call for the mainly Syrian and Afghan migrants fleeing through Turkey to Europe. A member of the coastguard told the BBC that 750 people arrived on the island in the first few hours of daylight on Thursday morning alone. Aid workers estimate that there are about 7,000 migrants on the island - which ordinarily has just 30,000 citizens. And with no support forthcoming from local authorities, it is the island's citizens who have stepped in to help those arriving by sea. "We have no choice," says Mr Chertofilis. "People are starving, we cannot leave them like this. We cannot do that."
So the physics teacher's summer holiday has been spent fundraising, cooking, and distributing food and clothes to the thousands of desperate people arriving on the island. His Kos Solidarity Project now has 50 volunteers and collects donations from many more.
A note on terminology: the BBC uses the term migrant to refer to all people on the move who have yet to complete the legal process of claiming asylum. This group includes people fleeing war-torn countries such as Syria, who are likely to be granted refugee status, as well as people who are seeking jobs and better lives, who governments are likely to rule are economic migrants. Led by Mr Chertofilis, ordinary men and women on Kos are working for hours before and after their day jobs, often from the break of dawn until late into the night, in an attempt to stem the humanitarian disaster unfolding on their doorsteps.  Mr Chertofilis works for about nine hours every day after he finishes teaching.
"We have to help them," he says. "They don't have clothes, they don't have shoes, they don't have food. If we don't help them, what will happen?"
A group of Pakistani migrants protest at their lack of progress obtaining transit papers on August 31, 2015 in Kos, Greece. Thousands of migrants have landed on Kos after fleeing Syria and Afghanistan via Turkey. Kos residents have allowed migrants into their courtyards to sleep and into their homes to wash, he says. Many have donated food, clothes, and medicines and bought items to order on their weekly food shops.
Taking the initiative
The people of Kos are not alone - stories are emerging of citizens around Europe taking the initiative to help. Diana Henniges is a social worker in Berlin who could see first hand that not enough was being done to help, so she offered her time. She is working for a volunteer group called Moabit Hilft, answering the phone to people across the city who want to help.
"People are calling from all over the city to help, to offer money, clothes and food," she says. They are also offering their homes - five people called in the first 15 minutes of Ms Henniges's shift on Thursday to say they will take someone in. 
"The refugees here need food, they need money and they need places to stay overnight," she says. "The people are trying to help where the state can't manage."
Germany is the main destination for migrants arriving on the EU's eastern borders and German authorities say they are expecting about 800,000 asylum seekers in 2015, four times the number last year. The country has not committed to accepting a specific number, but has said it will no longer return Syrians to their first port of entry in the EU. Helpers distribute fruit to migrants in front of the State Office for Health and Social Affairs (LaGeSo), in Berlin, Germany, September 3. 
An apple is handed out by a volunteer in Berlin . Elsewhere in Berlin, a couple say they have been overwhelmed with offers after creating a website called Refugees Welcome, to match migrants and refugees with people willing to take them in. 
Described as an "Airbus for refugees", the initiative has helped find homes for people fleeing Afghanistan, Liberia, Mali, Iraq, Somalia, Syria and many other countries. The site's two founders, Jonas Kakoschke, 31, and Mareike Geiling, 28, have taken in Bakari, a 39-year-old refugee from Mali, and they say a further 122 migrants have already found homes across Germany though their initiative. In Munich, volunteers have gathered at the city's Central Station to meet migrants with cheers of welcome and supplies of bottled water, bread, nappies, fruit and sweets. Banners were displayed with messages of welcome, echoing those held aloft at football matches across Germany last weekend. At Munich's Central Station, so much was donated that police politely asked the volunteers to stop for the day. And the desire to help stretches beyond Germany. In the Spanish cities of Madrid and Barcelona, so many families offered to help that city authorities are creating an official register to match them with migrants. In the French port city of Calais, people have donated books and food and a family took in a 20-year-old Syrian boy who knocked on their door asking for water. In Hungary, where migrants were last week sprayed with tear gas by police, some locals set up a projector to screen Tom and Jerry for the children. An image of the boys, laughing brightly at the cartoon, was shared widely on Twitter on the same day a young Syrian boy drowned trying to make it to Kos.
Citizen to citizen
As the image of that young Syrian boy appeared on the front pages of all the UK papers, Elinor Mountain, from Kilkenny in the Republic of Ireland, arrived on Kos. She and her husband had already booked a holiday to the island when the images of its migrant influx hit the news. The Mountains starting raising money in Kilkenny with events and collections. 
"There was a huge desire to help," she says. "Somebody I just met at the leisure centre gave me a cheque for €250 (£180; $280)." The couple flew to Kos with €2,200 to give to the island's volunteer groups, including Kos Solidarity. 
"People are feeling helpless and they want to do something," says Ms Mountain. "They want to take action, citizen to citizen. They want to change the debate from one about fear to one about human beings helping human beings."
The cash Ms Mountain took with her will be spent on tents, food and soap. The volunteers on Kos are a lifeline for refugees, she says. "There is a sense of humanity, people reaching out to these refugees with support."
But ultimately, volunteers are not a solution to the problem, says Ms Henniges in Berlin. "The local authorities need to more," she says. "There is so much more they could do, and they should but they don't. And volunteers are having to fill the gap."
And from where George Chertofilis is standing, these individual stories, though heartwarming, simply don't match the scale of the crisis unfolding across the continent. "There are just too many people," he says.
More than 350,000 migrants are known to have entered the EU between January and August 2015, compared with 280,000 for the whole of 2014. And that figure - an estimate from the International Organization for Migration - does not include the many who entered undetected.
"We have solidarity but we are not the answer," says Mr Chertofilis. "We have not had any help from the authorities, not the municipality or the government. The mayor of Kos says the people will help the refugees."
No one from the mayor's office was available to talk to the BBC, and Mr Chertofilis says he has had no response to his own inquiries for weeks.
"The Greek authorities have to provide a solution," he says. "The European Union has to provide a solution. We are waiting until this day."
But how long can he wait? 
"I don't know, I don't know," he says. "We will keep trying until the end."

Migrant crisis: Britain set to accept more refugees





http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-34148913
4 September 2015
David Cameron is expected to announce plans later to increase the number of refugees being allowed into the UK.
The extra refugees are expected to come from UN camps bordering Syria, and not from among people already in Europe.
No specific figure has been agreed, but Mr Cameron has previously said the UK would continue to take in "thousands".
The PM, who has faced growing pressure to do more to address the crisis, is likely to make an announcement in Spain after talks with fellow leaders.
He is meeting his Portuguese and Spanish counterparts for talks that had been intended to focus on his desire for EU reform, but which will be overshadowed by the migrant crisis.
'Deeply moved'
Calls for the UK to take in more refugees have intensified after the publication of a picture of the body of a drowned three-year-old Syrian boy, Alan Kurdi, washed up a Turkish beach.
Mr Cameron said on Thursday that as a father he felt "deeply moved" by the image, but has argued that taking on more people was not the simple answer.
But it now appears that his stance is shifting amid pressure from public and political figures, including:
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has written to Mr Cameron calling for the UK to accept more refugees
Former Labour Home Secretary David Blunkett said the UK should take in 25,000 over the next six months 
A petition calling on the UK to accept more refugees has got more than three times the 100,000 signatures needed for it to be eligible for a possible debate in Parliament
Meanwhile, a tense stand-off between police and migrants on a train in Hungary is continuing into a second day.
On Thursday, police let the migrants board the train in Budapest but then tried to force them off at a refugee camp to the west of the capital.
The prime minister isn't changing his argument. 
He still thinks opening up Europe's borders and agreeing quotas will not solve the refugee crisis. In fact, he thinks it would make it worse by increasing pull factors and encouraging people traffickers. 
But, as the crisis gets worse and the public and political pressure grows, the prime minister does now accept that Britain has a moral duty to do more.
While on a visit to Portugal and Spain to discuss his planned EU reforms, Mr Cameron is expected to say that he is looking at extending existing British and UN schemes that have so far brought a few hundred of the most vulnerable Syrian refugees to the UK.
No targets have been agreed and none is likely to be set today - although Mr Cameron has talked of taking thousands more - but he is unlikely to satisfy his many critics who want Britain to take in tens of thousands of refugees and who have been outraged by his reluctance to act.
Since 2014, the UK has accepted 216 Syrian refugees under a scheme to relocate the most vulnerable, and almost 5,000 Syrians have been granted asylum in the last four years.
Among those to add his voice to calls for the UK to do more is Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks, who told BBC Newsnight that the UK needed to make "a very clear and conspicuous humanitarian gesture".
"I think 10,000 is a figure that we could handle," he said. 
"It's a figure to which Britain would respond - the churches, the religious groups, the charities, would all join in, local civic groups.
"And I think we'd be better for doing that."
Development charity Oxfam welcomed indications of a shift in UK government policy.
Chief executive Mark Goldring said: "Offering to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees would bring the UK in line with other European countries who have already shown leadership in offering a haven to vulnerable refugees."

Migrant crisis: Why Syrians do not flee to Gulf states

As the crisis brews over Syrian refugees trying to enter European countries, questions have been raised over why they are not heading to wealthy Gulf states closer to home.
Although those fleeing the Syrian crisis have for several years been crossing into Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey in huge numbers, entering other Arab states - especially in the Gulf - is far less straightforward.
Officially, Syrians can apply for a tourist visa or work permit in order to enter a Gulf state.
But the process is costly, and there is a widespread perception that many Gulf states have unwritten restrictions in place that it make it hard for Syrians to be granted a visa in practice.

Most successful cases are Syrians already in Gulf states extending their stays, or those entering because they have family there.
For those with limited means, there is the added matter of the sheer physical distance between Syria and the Gulf.
Not welcome?
This comes as part of wider obstacles facing Syrians, who are required to obtain rarely granted visas to enter almost all Arab countries.
Without a visa, Syrians are not currently allowed to enter Arab countries except for Algeria, Mauritania, Sudan and Yemen.
The relative wealth and proximity to Syria of the states has led many - in both social and as well as traditional media - to question whether these states have more of a duty than Europe towards Syrians suffering from over four years of conflict and the emergence of jihadist groups in the country.
Users have posted powerful images to illustrate the plight of Syrian refugees, with photos of people drowned at sea, children being carried over barbed wire, or families sleeping rough.
A Facebook page called The Syrian Community in Denmark has shared a video showing migrants being allowed to enter Austria from Hungary, prompting one user to ask: "How did we flee from the region of our Muslim brethren, which should take more responsibility for us than a country they describe as infidels?"
Another user replied: "I swear to the Almighty God, it's the Arabs who are the infidels."
'Let them in!'
The story has also attracted the attention of regional press and political actors.

The Saudi daily Makkah Newspaper published a cartoon - widely shared on social media - that showed a man in traditional Gulf clothing looking out of a door with barbed wire around it and pointing at door with the EU flag on it.
"Why don't you let them in, you discourteous people?!" he says.
The commander of the opposition Free Syrian Army (FSA), Riyad al-Asaad, retweeted an image of refugees posted by a former Kuwaiti MP, Faisal al-Muslim, who had added the comment: "Oh countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council, these are innocent people and I swear they are most deserving of billions in aid and donations."
But despite the appeals from social media, Gulf states' position seems unlikely to shift in favour of Syrian refugees.

In terms of employment, the trend in most Gulf states, such as Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE is towards relying on migrant workers from South-East Asia and the Indian subcontinent, particularly for unskilled labour.
While non-Gulf Arabs do occupy positions in skilled mid-ranking jobs, for example in education and health, they are up against a "nationalisation" drive whereby the Saudi and Kuwaiti governments in particular are seeking to prioritise the employment of locals.
Non-native residents may also struggle to create stable lives in these countries as it is near impossible to gain nationality.



Budapest migrant standoff enters second night - 2 videos





http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34128263
3 September 2015
Hundreds of families have set up camp underneath Budapest's eastern station. Migrant surge. Migrant crisis as it happened - 2 September 2015. Europe in disarray over migrants. The battle over the words used to describe migrants.
Hundreds of migrants are in a standoff with police for a second night outside a Budapest railway station.
Earlier, scuffles broke out between the two sides as frustration among migrants boiled over outside Keleti station.
Many of the migrants have tickets and are insisting they be allowed to travel on to Germany and other countries, but Hungary says it is enforcing EU rules.
Meanwhile, Germany, Italy and France have called for "fair distribution" of refugees throughout the EU.
In a joint declaration, the countries' foreign ministers also called for Europe's asylum laws to be revised, the Italian foreign ministry said in a statement (in Italian).
As it happened: Wednesday's developments
With tens of thousands of migrants from the Middle East and Africa on the move through Europe, the EU's member states are struggling to agree a common policy for dealing with the crisis.
BBC's Fergal Keane reports on the death of two young boys, found drowned on a Turkish beach. 
Italy and Greece have complained that they are overwhelmed by the numbers arriving on their shores. And while countries such as Germany are prepared to accept large numbers of asylum seekers, others, such as the UK, are not.
The BBC's Chris Morris in Brussels says the European Commission, the executive of the EU, is trying to draw up a list of safe countries of origin that failed asylum applicants can be sent back to.
And an EC spokeswoman has now said it is preparing proposals for a mechanism to automatically redistribute a proportion of those seeking asylum among EU states.
In other developments:
Five children were among 12 migrants who drowned in Turkish waters while trying to reach Greece, officials said; images of a child's body washed up near the resort of Bodrum were circulating widely on social media. 
Aid agency Medecins Sans Frontieres tweets that two of its boats have rescued nearly 1,000 people from the Mediterranean. Police in Austria released 24 Afghan migrants who were in danger of suffocating from the back of a van. 
A man was arrested in the German town of Massow after attacking people in a migrants' centre with pepper spray. About 300 supporters of Hungary's right-wing nationalist Jobbik party waved flags and shouted abuse at migrants crossing the border from Serbia. Eurostar trains between London and Paris were disrupted overnight after migrants got on to train tracks. 

Migrants crisis: Unease as Czech police ink numbers on skin

Images of Czech police officers writing numbers on the hands of migrants are an uncomfortable reminder of a different event and a different era.
But the Czech authorities appeared totally unaware of the unfortunate visual connotations with the Holocaust, when prisoners at Auschwitz were systematically tattooed with serial numbers.
The Foreigners' Police said the priority in dealing with the 200 migrants at Breclav railway station, in the South Moravian region, was identifying them and trying to keep family members together. 
This, said a spokeswoman, was a difficult task when many had no documents and did not speak English; hence the numbers in felt-tip pen on their arms. 
But some are outraged.
A Czech police officer marks a migrant with a number in Breclav, Czech Republic, 1 September. Police said the priority was identifying the migrants and trying to keep family members together 
"These are awful images," said Hana Frankova, head of the legal department of a Czech NGO called Organisation for Aid to Refugees.
"It's absolutely against the provisions of the Refugees Convention, that asks signatories not to punish refugees who came without documentation," she told the BBC, adding that there was an established procedure for identifying asylum seekers. Czech authorities say the migrants are now being housed in several police gymnasiums until it can be established whether they have already requested asylum. A young man checks the numbers tattooed on the arms of Jewish Polish prisoners coming from Auschwitz, in Dachau concentration camp after its liberation by the US army at the end of April 1945. Jews at Auschwitz were tattooed with identification numbers during World War Two. If they have not, under the Dublin Regulation the Czechs are authorised to return them to the first EU country they were registered in. But in this case, that is often Hungary - which is itself already struggling to cope. So instead they will likely be detained in prison-like facilities for up to six weeks, before being let go - probably to continue their journey to Germany.
Hostility
Some observers, however, question why they are being detained here at all. Almost certainly they do not want to apply for asylum in the Czech Republic, which has so far received just 884 asylum requests this year. Instead they want to go to Germany, which - at least as far as the Syrians are concerned - will welcome them with open arms. So why lock them up at the expense of the Czech taxpayer? They will be presented with a bill at the end of their six-week incarceration; few, of course, have the money to pay it.
"The Czech authorities are presenting them as criminals, and it resonates well with the public when they are detained," Hana Frankova told the BBC. That is obviously not the official explanation. The authorities say they are detained because they arrived on Czech soil without documentation.

But the public mood is hardening; a petition is already circulating in Breclav in protest at a tent city being erected in the suburbs to house migrants arrested at the station. And that hostility is echoed on a national level. A new poll released on Wednesday suggested that 94% of Czechs believed the EU should return refugees to where they came from, 32% without helping them at all. 
More than three quarters want to abandon the EU's Schengen Agreement, which enables passport-free travel, and send Czech border guards back to their posts.

Migrant crisis: Hungary PM to meet European leaders

Hungary's leader is to meet European leaders in Brussels for talks on the migrant crisis, with hundreds still stranded at a Budapest railway station. Since Tuesday, migrants have been prevented from getting on trains to leave Hungary as EU states struggle to agree on how to deal with the crisis. Many in Budapest have tickets and want to travel north, but Hungary says it is enforcing European rules. Germany, Italy and France have demanded a fair distribution of refugees. At least 2,000 people are now waiting to travel from Keleti station, having been prevented from boarding trains on Tuesday. Some were involved in scuffles with police on Wednesday night. They had bought tickets after Hungary briefly appeared to abandon efforts on Monday to register migrants, allowing huge numbers to board trains to Vienna and southern Germany.
"We don't want to stay in Hungary, we want to go to whatever place we want," one Syrian man, Mohammed, told the Associated Press agency. "They are forcing us to stay here." Hundreds of families have set up camp underneath Budapest's eastern station. Elsewhere in the Hungarian capital, thousands marched in solidarity with the migrants, and demanded the government do more to help them.
"The government is carrying out policies which are inhumane, un-Christian and lack solidarity," one protester, Veronika Kramer, told AP. But in southern Hungary, hundreds of members of the neo-fascist group Jobbik confronted people walking into the country along railway lines from Serbia. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban attends a news conference with Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic (not pictured) in Budapest, Hungary, July 1, 2015.  What will happen in Brussels? - Viktor Orban is an often controversial figure known for his plain speaking. His government in Budapest has been notably critical of the European Commission's role in the migration crisis, seeing it as too soft. Today's talks are unlikely to produce a meeting of minds. The Commission is drawing up plans due to be unveiled next week that would create a permanent mechanism to distribute migrants across EU countries, under a formula based on wealth and population. All EU countries would be required to take part in the scheme, except Britain, Ireland and Denmark - but even they are coming under pressure to offer more voluntary assistance.

Migrant crisis: Austria and Germany await more arrivals - 2 videos

Locals have welcomed Latifah al-Dobah and her family to their new home in Germany, as Murad Shishani reports. Austria and Germany are expecting thousands more migrants to arrive from Hungary after Budapest eased restrictions on their travel. Throughout Saturday, by bus, train and on foot, people travelled to the Austrian border before moving on to Vienna and Munich. Austrian officials are laying on more trains as needed. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is to hold talks with her coalition partners on a crisis that has divided the EU. Five things behind the migrant crisis What is the UK doing to help? What can the EU do?
After days of confrontation and chaos, Hungary opened its borders with Austria and bussed thousands of migrants to the frontier. Up to 10,000 arrived at the border, according to the Austrian authorities, who have said they do not plan to limit the numbers crossing into the country. Many travelled straight on to Munich, southern Germany, where locals greeted them with applause, giving sweets to the children among the new arrivals. They have been sent on to reception centres to be registered and receive food and clothing. A memorial has been held in Vancouver, Canada for three-year-old Alan Kurdi, his brother Ghalib and mother Rehanna, who drowned trying to reach Kos. The three have family there. Pictures of Alan's body, washed up on a Turkish beach, sparked international outrage. Members of the Kurdi family who live in Vancouver were joined by more than 100 people to remember the three Syrians, who died on the journey to Europe after fleeing the conflict in their home country. Canada had earlier rejected an asylum application on behalf of the family. Tima Kurdi, the boys' aunt, said she was worried about their father Abdullah, who attended the burial for his family in Syria on Friday.
"He's not leaving the graves. He was sleeping the last three days there, on the ground, beside them."
Both  Germany and Hungary have said the current measures are aimed at averting a humanitarian crisis, and will not set a precedent. The rules requiring refugees to apply for asylum in the first country they land in "are still valid, and we expect other European Union member states to stick to them", a German government spokesman said. Drone footage filmed on Friday and Saturday shows the number of migrants prepared to walk to Austria. Chancellor Merkel has said Germany can cope with the influx of newcomers without raising taxes or jeopardising its budget. Germany is the key destination for arrivals on European shores, and expects to take in 800,000 people this year. Syrians fleeing a brutal civil conflict are the largest group travelling, followed by Afghans and Eritreans. Volunteers greet a migrant child arriving in Germany. Many of the newcomers received a warm welcome in Germany. Child migrants asleep on a train to Germany. Hungary had previously stopped migrants travelling by train to Western Europe A migrant gestures at a train station in Vienna, Austria. Austria is laying on more trains for the migrants on Sunday. There is little sign of a co-ordinated EU response to the crisis, despite more than 350,000 migrants having crossed the EU's borders in 2015 alone. Europe's migrant crisis is "here to stay" and nations must act together to deal with it effectively, the EU's foreign policy chief said after "difficult" talks with foreign ministers in Luxembourg.
"In three months time, it will be other member states under the focus, and in six months, it could be others again," Federica Mogherini said. Germany, backed by the European Commission, has been pushing for a quota system for dividing the people reaching Europe between member states. But this has been opposed by several eastern members. On Saturday, Hungary said that while it had temporarily relaxed restrictions on the transit of asylum seekers, it was pressing ahead with plans to tighten border controls and could send troops to its southern frontier if parliament agreed.

Migrant crisis: Hundreds end journey at Munich station

Trains carrying hundreds of migrants have arrived in the German city of Munich, after Hungary abandoned efforts to register them under EU rules. Some 1,400 people had arrived in Munich by Tuesday morning, after travelling through Austria, and more were due. Hungarian police have now closed a main station in Budapest in an attempt to bring the crisis under control. The number of migrants entering Europe has reached record levels, with 107,500 arriving in July alone.
Outside Keleti (eastern) station in Budapest, around 1,000 migrants chanted "Germany, Germany", calling for the station to be reopened so that they could continue their journey. Germany expects to take in 800,000 migrants this year - four times last year's total.

Migrants arrive in Austria after Hungary provides buses - 2 videos

Bethany Bell reports from Austria's border with Hungary on the migrants' arrival: ''They are exhausted''Thousands of migrants have crossed into Austria, after Hungary's surprise decision to provide buses to take them to the border overnight.
For days, the Hungarian government had blocked them from travelling by train to northern and western Europe. About 3,000 exhausted people, many of whom had initially fled Syria, crossed the Austrian border and are being received in a Red Cross Centre. Austria says they can claim asylum or carry on to Germany if they wish. The move comes as European Union countries are struggling to agree on how to deal with an unprecedented surge of asylum seekers.
Hungary's government eased restrictions on transit after many migrants overwhelmed police cordons and set off towards the border on foot on Friday. Matthew Price has been travelling with some of the families and sharing video on social media Buses began picking up migrants from Keleti station in central Budapest, where thousands had been camped. Vehicles were also sent to take those who had decided to walk along a motorway to Austria. On Saturday Hungarian government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs told the BBC there would be no more buses or trains to take the migrants on to Austria. He said the transport had been arranged as a one-off, because of fears for the migrants' safety.

When the buses arrived, some of the migrants argued with officials, fearful they would be arrested rather than sent to Germany, the BBC's Matthew Price reported. But early on Saturday, groups began crossing the border on foot. Some Austrians displayed welcome signs. Austrian Red Cross workers at a makeshift centre greeted them with blankets and tea.
"I feel [at] home," said Ayaz Morad, one of the first to arrive. "This is a great land - nice people, nice government."
The migrants are now being taken by train from the Austrian border town of Nickelsdorf to the capital Vienna. Many hope to travel on to Germany. 'Exhausted, but smiling': Bethany Bell, BBC News, Austrian-Hungarian border. Migrants arrive at the Austrian-Hungarian border, 5 September 2015.  They crossed into Austria on foot - the Hungarian buses stopped before reaching the border and they had to walk the final stretch. There were children and at least one man in a wheelchair.
They were exhausted. Some of them were limping, but many were smiling broadly - relieved to have finally left Hungary. 
"Where are we?" one man shouted. "Austria," I replied. "Good," he said. Germany has said it expects to take in 800,000 people this year. Austria's Chancellor Werner Faymann said that after talks with his German counterpart Angela Merkel, the two countries would allow in the migrants due to the "emergency situation" in Hungary. But he said he expected Hungary to respect any EU quotas for asylum seekers - something Hungary, along with the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia, has rejected.

The Red Cross prepared for arrivals at the Hungarian-Austrian border. Hungary has become a major transit nation for people fleeing the Middle East and Africa, and seeking to reach north and west Europe. The Hungarian parliament on Friday approved tougher border controls and penalties for migrants, underlining divisions within the EU on how to tackle the crisis. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said the surge in arrivals was "Germany's problem", since that was where most people wanted to go. But Chancellor Merkel has called for refugees to be fairly divided among EU members. Our correspondent has been walking with hundreds of migrants who attempted to travel on foot to Austria.

Nauru migrant centre 'unsafe' for children (Papua New Guinea) - senate report





Nauru Republic

1 Sep 2015 
An aerial photograph of Nauru: The world's smallest republicImage caption Nauru: The world's smallest republic . Australia's government is being urged to remove children from its detention centre on Nauru island in the Pacific. The senate committee report published on Monday found conditions on Nauru were not "appropriate or safe" for detainees. It said allegations of rape and abuse should be investigated and access given to journalists and rights workers.  All people who try to get to Australia by boat as refugees are detained in off-shore centres like Nauru. Immigration Minister Peter Dutton said the report had been "a witch hunt".
'Statement of the obvious'
The committee report was based on six months of investigations and public hearings. It said the government should "extend its current policy commitment to remove children from immigration detention to the maximum extent possible", and "develop a plan for the removal of children" from Nauru "with their families where they have them, to appropriate arrangements in the community". Mr Dutton said the report was a "political witch hunt", saying that rival Labor and Greens senators dominate the committee. But he said he was "happy to consider any of the recommendations which provide for a better outcome for people". 
"I think anyone would make that statement as a statement of the obvious," the Australian Broadcasting Corp quoted him as saying. "We need to recognise... that regional processing is there because we are not going to allow these people to come to Australia."
Australia asylum: Why is it controversial?
The number of asylum seekers travelling to Australia by boat rose sharply in 2012 and early 2013. Scores of people have died making the journey. To stop the influx, the government has adopted tough measures intended as a deterrent.
Everyone who arrives is detained. Under a new policy, they are processed in Nauru and Papua New Guinea. Those found to be refugees will be resettled in PNG, Nauru or Cambodia. Prime Minister Tony Abbott's government has also adopted a policy of tow-backs, or turning boats around. The Greens party has called for an independent investigation of claims one of its senators was spied on during a visit to Nauru. Sarah Hanson-Young was allegedly monitored and followed by private security guards from Wilson Security when she visited the centre on the Pacific island in 2013. A former Nauru guard has described the operation as "extensive spying".


Migrant crisis: Hundreds arrive at Austria station - 2 videos



http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-3411040
1 Sep 2015
Hundreds of migrants have arrived by rail in the Austrian capital Vienna after being held for several hours at the Hungarian border. Many of them immediately boarded trains bound for Germany. Austria has also introduced extra checks on road vehicles entering from Hungary after 71 dead people were found in a lorry on Thursday. The number of migrants entering Europe has reached record levels, with 107,500 arriving in July alone. Most of those found dead on Thursday, on the A4 at Parndorf, were thought to be Syrians fleeing the country's civil war. Five people have been detained in connection with the deaths. Thousands of people rallied in Austria on Monday demanding better rights for migrants. As well as the bodies in the lorry in Austria, hundreds more people drowned in the Mediterranean last week while trying to reach Europe from Libya. The rules governing immigration to the EU - explained in 90 seconds. On Monday, Austrian authorities had stopped trains heading for Vienna from the Hungarian capital Budapest, saying they would turn back anyone on board who had made a request for asylum in Hungary - but it is not clear if this actually happened. Austria's rail service OeBB said the route from Budapest was facing severe disruption due to "overcrowding". Austrian police said up to 1,000 people arrived in Vienna's main railway station on Monday, and were met by volunteers handing out food and drink. Once in Austria, migrants would have two weeks to decide whether or not they wanted to claim refugee status there, police said.
'No police, no problem'
The BBC's Bethany Bell in Vienna says Germany is the main destination for migrants arriving on the EU's eastern borders. Germany expects to take in 800,000 migrants this year - four times last year's total. Among them is Khalil, 33, an English teacher from Kobane in Syria who was travelling with his wife and sick daughter through Austria to Hamburg.
"Thank God nobody asked for a passport," he told Reuters news agency. "No police, no problem."
Austrian police said five suspected people smugglers had been arrested as part of its checks on vehicles entering from Austria. More than 200 migrants had also been found as part of those checks. The Austrian checks appear to undermine the EU's Schengen system, which normally allows unrestricted travel. But in exceptional circumstances countries can reintroduce border controls under Schengen. Austria's interior ministry told the BBC that the checks would not be necessary if there were an agreement to distribute the migrants fairly. Meanwhile, German Chancellor Angela Merkel called for greater EU co-operation on the issue and implicitly called for other countries to welcome more refugees. 
"If Europe fails on the question of refugees, then it won't be the Europe we wished for," she said on Monday. German Chancellor Angela Merkel: ''We want a fair distribution of refugees''
But she said there would be "no tolerance for those who question the dignity of other people" after a spate of arson attacks on refugee shelters and anti-migrant demonstrations. Mrs Merkel's call for greater co-operation was echoed by French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, who warned that Europe's migrant crisis would be a "long and difficult challenge". The UN says the continuing conflict in Syria is a major factor behind the rise in migrant numbers. Greece, Italy and Hungary have particularly struggled with the surge of migrants from not only Syria but the rest of the Middle East and Africa. An extraordinary meeting of EU interior ministers is to be held on 14 September. Some governments have refused to take in refugees and resisted EU proposals to agree on a common plan. Others are tightening their policies on asylum and border security, sometimes because of rising anti-immigration sentiment. 10 days of the migrant crisis. Why is EU struggling with migrants and asylum?

Syrian refugees disembark a ferry at the port of Piraeus, near Athens, Greece, 01 September 2015. More than 4,000 migrants arrived near Athens from the island of Lesbos. The country's government says it lacks the resources to look after that many arrivals, but aid groups say authorities should be doing more. On Tuesday, Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos called his French counterpart Francois Hollande and asked that the situation facing Greece be discussed at a senior European level. Greece's caretaker cabinet is set to convene later on Wednesday. Many of those arriving in the country do so on the island of Lesbos, The EU's border control agency, Frontex, says 23,000 migrants arrived in Greece last week alone - an increase of 50% on the previous week.

Under an EU rule known as the Dublin Regulation, refugees should seek asylum in the first EU country they enter. But Italy and Greece - the main landing points - say they cannot cope with the numbers and many migrants head north. On Monday, Hungary had appeared to abandon efforts to register migrants, allowing huge numbers to board trains at Keleti station in east Budapest and travel to Vienna and southern Germany. But police evacuated the station on Tuesday, leaving about 1,000 migrants outside. Damian Grammaticas reports from Budapest: ''Their way barred, their frustrations boiled over. Late on Tuesday, an angry crowd chanted "Germany, Germany" and waved train tickets. Members of the crowd complained that they had paid hundreds of euros for tickets to Austria or Germany. Hungary said it would now register all migrants and send those it considered to be economic migrants back to the state from which they entered the country. Elsewhere in Europe, trespassers on the tracks of the Channel Tunnel and reports of migrants on train roofs caused disruption to trains between France and the UK overnight.

The number of migrants entering Europe has reached record levels, with 107,500 arriving in July alone. Germany expects to take in 800,000 migrants this year - four times last year's total. The German government has already said it will allow Syrians arriving from other EU states to apply for asylum. But on Tuesday, a spokesman said the Dublin Regulation had not been suspended. "Dublin rules are still valid and we expect European member states to stick to them," an interior ministry spokesman said. The risks for migrants travelling through Europe were highlighted last week by the deaths of 71 people found in a lorry that had travelled to Austria from Budapest. As a result, Austria reintroduced border controls at main crossings from Hungary. EU interior and justice ministers will meet in Brussels on 14 September to address the crisis.

Residents on the Greek island of Agathonisi say they need help to deal with the large number of refugees arriving there on a daily basis. It has become one of the main destinations for migrants trying to enter Europe but it is a small island and the influx of people is creating friction with locals. As new refugees try to register at the police station, they are instructed to pick up litter - or face prison.

Many humans are blind to see how slowly-slowly Alien and Human races have been brought to live and work together, to merge their Energies first - secretly, but now more and more openly. I can give you a few examples and maybe you need to pay more attention on that:

1. Halloween, Zombies Parades (since 2006), haunted castles, ghost/horror shows/adventures and some weird Dysneyland attractions, which have beed encouraged and staged in many countries. Look at the costumes, make up and behaviour, doesn't it all resemble Aliens in some way?

2. Why do you think some governments spend a lot of money on training and organising Paralympic Games and Championships? ParOlympic Games in Tokyo took place in 1964. More Disabled People have been  performing on stage, in films/videos, in streets and airports;

3. 
Appearance of ugly or maimed/disfigured faces of TV presenters worldwide;

4. 
U.S. president Franklin D. Roosevelt was a wheelchaired person and still managed to do his work. Here is some description from wikipedia: 
"Franklin D. Roosevelt was the only U.S. president to be elected four times... He taught himself to walk short distances in his braces and was careful not to be seen in public using his wheelchair..."

5. There are so many movies like "Men in Black" etc., catoons, videos, photos, TV interviews, articles about disabled humans or about aliens, but many people still can/t tolerate the sight of diabled people 
(not to mention to love them)! By now we have millions of disabled people worldwide! Our Higher Selves deliberately created this situation for us to wake up and only PAIN, physical and emotional, can do that!

If people can't get used to disabled or disfigured humans, how can they live and work with aliens (which is inevitable) ?

Franklin D. Roosevelt was the only U.S. president to be elected four times. He led the United States through the Great Depression and World War II. Born on January 30, 1882, in Hyde Park, New York, Franklin D. Roosevelt was stricken with polio in 1921. He became the 32nd U.S. president in 1933, and was the only president to be elected four times. Roosevelt led the United States through the Great Depression and World War II, and greatly expanded the powers of the federal government through a series of programs and reforms known as the New Deal. Roosevelt died in Georgia in 1945. For a time, Franklin Roosevelt was resigned to being a victim of polio, believing his political career to be over. But Eleanor Roosevelt and political confidante Louis Howe encouraged him to continue on. Over the next several years, Roosevelt worked to improve his physical and political image. He taught himself to walk short distances in his braces and was careful not to be seen in public using his wheelchair. In February 1945, Franklin Roosevelt attended the Yalta Conference with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Soviet General Secretary Joseph Stalin to discuss post-war reorganization.

We're celebrating 10 years at Sydney Olympic Park! In 10 years Australian Paralympians have won 273 medals at the Paralympic Games!
As a team, they won Sailor of the Year with a Disability at the #YAAwards for qualifying all three classes for Rio and for winning The Nations Cup at the World Championships, and it's just been announced that the Australian Sailing Team National Training Centre has been extended to integrate Paralympic training. Our guys can continue their quest for gold at Rio and we've got every bit of confidence that they can do just that... The Steelers are returning home from the USA without a win but 
each of our athletes, both new and experienced, have stepped up on and off the court and have gained so much as a team. We can’t wait to see them take the USA by surprise this time next year at the World Wheelchair Rugby Challenge in London! Some of our best athletes are competing in the Chicago Marathon this weekend, including Kurt Fearnley who took out second place last year! Good luck to all racing, we know you’ll smash it! Six-time Paralympian Michael Milton will be inducted into The Sport Australia Hall of Fame this Thursday, becoming only the 3rd Paralympian to achieve this level of recognition. An amazing feat, well done Michael!  Today is World Cerebral Palsy Day and as always, we're celebrating the achievements of our athletes with CP. Maddison Elliott is only 15, but has four Paralympic medals to her name. What a legend!  Our Paralympians have smashed the Sydney Marathon once again! Kurt Fearnley has won his 10th title at the event, and Richard Nicholson and Richard Colman have followed in second and third place respectively. An amazing effort by all !  Wheelchair racer Richard Colman is a man on a marathon mission! He's just come back from Bolivia where he became the first person in a wheelchair to complete Death Road, a 64km track that descends 3,500m and this weekend, he is taking on the Sydney Marathon for the very first time.  Winter might be over but this news is sure to get all Para-snowboarders and Para-skiers excited! The Victorian Coalition Government will be investing $2.5 million in an all-accessible athlete base at Falls Creek.This means there will be more opportunities for people with a disability to participate in Disabled Wintersport Australia programs. We're looking forward to seeing all the Paralympic winter sports stars it will help produce! Daniel secured his first ever world title at the 2014 IFDS Combined Sailing World Champs, and with partner Liesl Tesch finished ahead of Great Britain's six-time champions Niki Birrell and Alexandra Rickham. Our Para-equestrian team has qualified for Rio! The World Equestrian Games which wrapped up on Friday in France was a first for the team, and each of them performed outstandingly well!
