"As a communist I don’t believe in heaven or the Bible but as a scientist I now believe in hell," said Dr. Azzacove. "Needless to say we were shocked to make such a discovery. But we know what we saw and we know what we heard. And we are absolutely convinced that we drilled through the gates of hell!"Dr. Azzacove continued, ". . .the drill suddenly began to rotate wildly, indicating that we had reached a large empty pocket or cavern. Temperature sensors showed a dramatic increase in heat to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.""We lowered a microphone, designed to detect the sounds of plate movements down the shaft. But instead of plate movements we heard a human voice screaming in pain! At first we thought the sound was coming from our own equipment.""But when we made adjustments our worst suspicions were confirmed. The screams weren’t those of a single human, they were the screams of millions of humans!"The following is a recording that claims to be the actual sounds of hell from the above article.

EITHER WAY WE KNOW TURKEY WILL GRADUALLY ALIGN WITH RUSSIA.IT IS ALREADY IN FACT.MAYBE THIS IS ALL SOME KINDA SCAM BY RUSSIA-TURKEY TO DECIEVE THE WEST INTO THINKING THEIR ENEMIES.
200 Years Ago, War Between Turkey and Russia Prophesied as Sign of Redemption-By Rivkah Lambert Adler November 29, 2015 , 1:00 pm-BREAKINGISRAELINEWS
“If the prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, and the thing does not occur and does not come about, that is the thing the Lord did not speak. The prophet has spoken it wantonly; you shall not be afraid of him.” (Deuteronomy 18:22) Russian President Vladimir Putin with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan After news conference following a meeting of High-Level Russian-Turkish Cooperation Council, Istanbul, Turkey. -With tensions escalating between Russia and Turkey, many are wondering if the world is being witness to a divine act of messianic intervention.Just before his death in 1797, an exceedingly well-respected Jewish sage known as the Vilna Gaon (the genius of Vilna) left his followers with a prophetic statement about two specific events that would happen just before the appearance of the Messiah.After being held as “a closely guarded secret” for over 200 years, Rabbi Moshe Shternbuch, a great-grandson of the Vilna Gaon, shared the full prophecy publically for the first time in 2014. The text of the Vilna Gaon’s prophecy was reported by Rabbi Lazer Brody, an American-born Hasidic rabbi and teacher from Ashdod, Israel in March, 2014.“When you hear that the Russians have captured the city of Crimea, you should know that the times of the Messiah have started, that his steps are being heard. And when you hear that the Russians have reached the city of Constantinople, you should put on your Shabbat (Sabbath) clothes and don’t take them off, because it means that the Messiah is about to come any minute.”In this prophecy, the Vilna Gaon mentioned two signs of the imminent arrival of the Messiah – Russia capturing Crimea and Russia invading the Turkish city of Constantinople (now Istanbul). The first prophecy was fulfilled in 2014 when Russia annexed the Ukrainian territory of Crimea.Current tensions between Russia and Turkey, including Turkey shooting down a Russian fighter jet on November 24, are setting the stage for the second sign, the Russian invasion of Istanbul, to occur soon.The prophecy of the Vilna Gaon is strengthened by the existence of a similar prophecy, this one from the Jewish sage known as the Ba’al Shem Tov, the founder of the Hasidic Judaism. Like the Vilna Gaon, the Ba’al Shem Tov lived in the 18th century.-The end is near. Are you ready?-The Kloisenberger Rebbe, a 20th century Hasidic rabbi, echoed the Vilna Gaon’s second sign when he wrote “in the name of the Ba’al Shem Tov, when you see the Russian horse in Constantinople, a city in Turkey, you should know Moshiach (Messiah) is about to arrive.”According to the Kloisenberger Rebbe, in addition to the Russian military presence in the Turkish city of Istanbul, the Ba’al Shem Tov foretold another sign of the impending arrival of the Messiah – “the Russians will come, they will come and be together with the sons of Ishmael.” That is, when the Russians join forces with the spiritual descendents of Ishmael, who today are identified as those of Islamic descent, it’s another sign of the coming of the Messiah.Militarily, Russia is already connected with its Shiite Muslim allies in Syria and Iran. As reported in Breaking Israel News, a 75-year-old prophecy connects Russia’s unfolding role in Syria to Gog and Magog. Since late September of this year, Russia has become a central player in Syria, leading many to hypothesize that Putin is Gog and Russia is Magog.The messianic alliance between Russia and the Shiite Muslims of Syria and Iran was deepened by a recent gesture of friendship off the battlefield. On November 23, Russian President Vladimir Putin gave a rare and valuable gift to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. Putin gave Khamenei one of five copies of the original handwritten Koran, the Muslim holy text that dates back to the 7th century.
12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet,(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB) and their eyes shall consume away in their holes,(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB) and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB)(BECAUSE NUKES HAVE BEEN USED ON ISRAELS ENEMIES)(GOD PROTECTS ISRAEL AND ALWAYS WILL)
13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.(1/2-3 BILLION DIE IN WW3)(THIS IS AN ATOMIC BOMB EFFECT)
47 And say to the forest of the south, Hear the word of the LORD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee, and it shall devour every green tree in thee, and every dry tree: the flaming flame shall not be quenched, and all faces from the south to the north shall be burned therein.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven;(FROM ATOMIC BOMBS) and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
And here are the bounderies of the land that Israel will inherit either through war or peace or God in the future. God says its Israels land and only Israels land. They will have every inch God promised them of this land in the future.

PM: Israel Will Not Transfer Even One Meter of Land to the Palestinians-By JNS November 30, 2015 , 1:00 pm-BREAKINGISRAELINEWS
“Light dawns in the darkness for the upright; he is gracious, merciful, and righteous.” (Psalm 112:4)-Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared on Sunday that Israel will not hand over territory to the Palestinian Authority (PA).Speaking to a meeting of Likud party ministers, the prime minister denied recent reports suggesting that the government planned to transfer 10,000 dunams (2,500 acres) of land over to PA control as a confidence-building measure.“There will not be any transfer of land,” Netanyahu said. “Not 40,000 dunams, not 10,000, and not even one [square] meter.”Israeli Science, Technology and Space Minister Ofir Akunis also denied the recent reports.“After the delusional idea of transferring weapons to the Palestinians,” Akunis said, referring to remarks to the media by an anonymous IDF officer who said the IDF would recommend easing restrictions on the Palestinians to calm tensions, “we are hearing about the initiative by the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories to hand over 10,000 dunams. We cannot let this happen.”

IMF’s Executive Board Completes Review of SDR Basket, Includes Chinese Renminbi-Press Release No. 15/540-November 30, 2015
The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) today completed the regular five-yearly review of the basket of currencies that make up the Special Drawing Right (SDR). A key focus of the Board review was whether the Chinese renminbi (RMB) met the existing criteria to be included in the basket. The Board today decided that the RMB met all existing criteria and, effective October 1, 2016 the RMB is determined to be a freely usable currency and will be included in the SDR basket as a fifth currency, along with the U.S. dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen and the British pound. Launching the new SDR basket on October 1, 2016 will provide sufficient lead time for the Fund, its members and other SDR users to adjust to these changes.At the conclusion of the meeting, Ms. Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the IMF, stated:“The Executive Board's decision to include the RMB in the SDR basket is an important milestone in the integration of the Chinese economy into the global financial system. It is also a recognition of the progress that the Chinese authorities have made in the past years in reforming China’s monetary and financial systems. The continuation and deepening of these efforts will bring about a more robust international monetary and financial system, which in turn will support the growth and stability of China and the global economy.”The value of the SDR will be based on a weighted average of the values of the basket of currencies comprising the U.S. dollar, euro, the Chinese renminbi, Japanese yen, and British pound. The inclusion of the RMB will enhance the attractiveness of the SDR by diversifying the basket and making it more representative of the world’s major currencies. The SDR interest rate will continue to be determined as a weighted average of the interest rates on short-term financial instruments in the markets of the currencies in the SDR basket. Authorities of all currencies represented in the SDR basket, which now includes the Chinese authorities, are expected to maintain a policy framework that facilitates operations for the IMF, its membership and other SDR users in their currencies. The paper presented to the Board will be released soon.IMF COMMUNI CATIONS DEPARTMENT-Media Relations-E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org -Phone: 202-623-7100
Chinese yuan to join world's leading currencies; Move could make yuan easier to trade-By Josh Boak, The Associated Press | The Canadian Press – NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
WASHINGTON - The Chinese yuan will join a basket of the world's leading currencies, the International Monetary Fund announced Monday.The IMF said that the yuan "met all existing criteria" to be included with the U.S. dollar, euro, Japanese yen and the British pound as one of the currencies used for the global organization's Special Drawing Rights, which serves as a standard for dealing with the financial reserves of its 188 member governments.China is the world's second largest economy. Currency traders and economists say the move should encourage the government in Beijing to deliver on promises to make the yuan "freely tradable" and to open up its financial system. The country has historically pegged its currency to the dollar, giving it an advantage in exporting goods to the United States and helping it to emerge as a manufacturing powerhouse.IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said the inclusion was "clearly an important milestone in a journey that had begun months, if not years ago" to a "market-driven" economy in China. The decision was based off the volume of exports involving the yuan and its use in the financial markets, among other factors.Lagarde said she would have reserved judgment about the yuan's addition a year ago. But China reformed the openness of its policies in setting interest rates and the transparency of its data. The IMF chief said the decision was an "indication of the reforms that have been implemented and will continue to be implemented."The U.S. Treasury Department said it supported the recommendation by IMF staff that China's currency — also known as the renminbi — be included in the Special Drawing Rights basket.The IMF's decision is set to take effect in October 2016.
China's yuan added to basket used to set value of IMF's in-house currency: Why it matters-By Joe McDonald, The Associated Press | The Canadian Press – NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
BEIJING, China - The addition of China's yuan to the select basket of currencies used as a yardstick by the International Monetary Fund is a sign, experts say, that the yuan may one day become as recognizable as the dollar or euro.Adding the yuan alongside the dollar, euro, pound and yen is a symbolic victory for Beijing. It reflects the rising importance of the world's second-largest economy and is an endorsement of gradual Chinese moves toward making the currency freely traded.Currency traders and economists see the change as encouragement to Beijing to make faster progress on promises to make the yuan "freely tradable" and open its financial system.___WHAT HAPPENED-The IMF added the yuan to the basket of currencies used to calculate the value of Special Drawing Rights, a notional currency used as the standard for dealing with its member governments. That came after IMF staff concluded in a Nov. 13 report that the yuan was "freely usable," meaning widely used for international transactions and widely traded in foreign exchange markets. The IMF created SDRs in the 1960s as a possible international currency, but they failed to gain wider acceptance. Until 1980, the basket was 16 currencies including Iran and South Africa but that was reduced. Following the global financial crisis, Beijing called in March 2009 for creation of a new currency, possibly based on the SDR, to reduce reliance on dollars but failed to attract support.___WHY ADD THE YUAN?-China is the second-biggest economy after the United States and the biggest trader. The yuan is the No. 4 currency for global trade, accounting for about 2.5 per cent of the total, according to SWIFT, the organization for interbank financial transfers. Beijing controls the flow of money into and out of its economy but has encouraged the use of the yuan abroad, especially for trade, which helps Chinese exporters by eliminating the cost and risk of volatile exchange rates. Since 2009, China has signed currency swap agreements with central banks in Britain, Brazil, Canada, Indonesia, South Korea and other countries. Branches of Chinese state-owned banks in Britain, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, France and Singapore have received authorization to take deposits or settle trade-related transactions in yuan.___ IMPACT ON GLOBAL FINANCE-The SDR has no direct link to financial markets or private business. Over time, the IMF decision might prompt central banks to hold more reserves in yuan. JP Morgan economist Haibin Zhu said yuan holdings might rise to 5 per cent of global reserves, or about $350 billion, over five years. That might encourage more use of yuan for trade and investment. "Longer term, this is a huge step," said Stephen Innes, chief trader for the currency firm OANDA in Singapore. "Once investors become more comfortable with Chinese markets, especially if they continue to progress with opening policies and make the same strides they did over the past year, international markets will really embrace Chinese capital markets."___IMPACT ON CHINA-Economists say the IMF decision could encourage Chinese leaders to further relax controls on the yuan. The ruling Communist Party's latest five-year development plan says the yuan will be "freely tradable and freely usable" by 2020. The surprise August introduction of a new mechanism for setting the government-controlled exchange rate led to a 3.5 per cent devaluation. But the country's top economic official, Premier Li Keqiang, said in September that there were no plans for further declines. Some traders worry Beijing might devalue once it achieved its goal of being added to the IMF basket. But others say Chinese leaders want to be seen as reliable. The yuan's addition is "an endorsement as an international currency," said Chen Kang, chief bond analyst for SWS Research Co. in Shanghai. "That will encourage China to adopt more measures toward accelerating the process of the opening of its foreign exchange markets and capital markets."___UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES-The yuan's government- set exchange rate still follows the dollar despite the new mechanism for setting its value. For now, that makes the yuan a dollar in disguise, according to Derek Scissors of the American Enterprise Institute in Washington. Until the yuan is allowed to trade freely, the IMF decision will "increase the dollar's importance," said Scissors in an email. "Those governments or investors hoping for a dilution of dollar dominance for portfolio diversification or political reasons are getting exactly the opposite."

30 November 2015-COP21 kicks off in Paris with 147 world leaders-Worldwide, COP 21, Policy
The COP21 United Nations climate summit began in Paris on Monday and 147 world leaders have gathered in the French capital with the aim of reaching a historic global climate deal.US President Barack Obama said the summit could be a "turning point" in international efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prevent catastrophic levels of global warming.The summit runs from 30 November to 11 December and delegations from the 195 UN member states will negotiate on a global agreement aimed at limiting an average global temperature increase to 2°C.President Obama said " (the) next generation is watching… Climate change could define the contours of this century more than any other (issue)… I came here personally to say the United States not only recognises the problem but is committed to do something about it."Russian President Vladimir Putin also addressed the summit and said: "We have demonstrated we can ensure economic development and take care of our environment at the same time."Chinese President Xi Jinping said the Paris talks are not a "finish line, but a new starting point… a shared mission for all mankind."Christiana Figueres, the Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) leading the negotiations, said: "The world is looking to you… The world is counting on you."

Liberals hitch campaign clean tech fund to star power at Paris climate summit-By Bruce Cheadle, The Canadian Press | The Canadian Press – NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
PARIS - Call it harnessing star power.The Liberal government plugged a couple of its election campaign promises on the environment into some high-wattage personalities Monday on the opening day of an international climate change conference.Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates staged an event at the Paris COP21 venue for Mission Innovation, a group of 19 countries and 28 leading investors that are pledging billions to boost new developments in clean technology.The event included many of the heaviest hitters at the summit, including French President Francois Hollande, U.S. President Barack Obama, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping.Gates announced that private investors are committing $7 billion for research and development of clean energy, while the White House put out a release saying it would double its annual $5 billion-plus for clean tech innovation.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Canada will spend $300 million a year on clean technology innovation, combining two funds the Liberals had promised in their October platform."It lines up very well with what President Obama and others are calling for in Mission Innovation," Trudeau said at a news conference just prior to the splashy Mission Innovation launch. "So we're very pleased to be part of this international initiative."Governments from India, South Korea and Saudi Arabia to Australia and Norway are involved in the movement, which hopes to harness public and private dollars to boost investment.The money will support a wide range of technologies, Gates said Monday — "biofuels, carbon capture, high wind, fission, fusion — we're unbiased, but it has to be clean and possible to scale up cheaply."Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall, who is one of five Canadian premiers in Paris for the conference opening, arrived with the stated aim of promoting carbon capture and storage technology that is being pioneered in his province.A new coal plant goes up every 13 days in China, Wall said Monday and India has 500 new, coal-fired generating stations in the works."If we're serious about climate change, doing something about greenhouse gases, Canada can actually have a big vision of contributing technology that will help clean up the transition energies like coal," said Wall.Saskatchewan's Boundary Dam power plant near Estevan opened a carbon- capture system last year amidst great fanfare, but the project has been beset with cost overruns and technical problems.Wall said all new technologies come down in price and improve in performance over subsequent generations. He hopes Canada can be an exporter of carbon capture to the world, calling it "one arrow in the quiver" for fighting climate change.It would also be good for the Canadian economy to become a clean technology exporter.That's part of the green revolution equation that is frequently overlooked — the opportunity for visionary investors to get very wealthy by betting on the cutting edge.Individual investors promoting the Mission Innovation project include Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, billionaires George Soros and Saudi Prince Alaweed bin Talal, and Jack Ma of the Chinese online sales giant Alibaba.Green party Leader Elizabeth May is a big promoter of clean tech but sounded less than sold Monday when asked about carbon capture and storage."It's potentially a small part of the solution," said May, a Canadian delegate to the COP21 climate conference."But the reality of carbon capture and storage is it allows the notion that you can have your cake and eat it too."May argues that the focus of clean technology innovation should be getting away from fossil fuels, especially coal, as quickly as possible.— Follow @BCheadle on Twitter
Pushing for climate deal, Obama calls global talks an 'act of defiance' after Paris attacks-By Nancy Benac, The Associated Press | The Canadian Press – NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
LE BOURGET, France - Pushing for a powerful climate deal, President Barack Obama called the global talks opening Monday outside Paris an "act of defiance" against terrorism that proves the world stands undeterred by Islamic State-linked attacks in Europe and beyond.Obama used his speech to more than 150 world leaders to salute Paris and its people for "insisting this crucial conference go on" just two weeks after attacks that killed 130 in the French capital. He said leaders had converged to show resolve to fight terrorism and uphold their values at the same time."What greater rejection of those who would tear down our world than marshalling our best efforts to save it," Obama said.Obama's remarks came at the start of two weeks of make-or-break negotiations to finalize a sweeping global agreement to cut carbon emissions and hopefully stave off the worst effects of climate change. Obama exhorted leaders here to fight the enemy of cynicism — "the notion we can't do anything" about the warming of the planet.After sketching dire threats of submerged nations, abandoned cities and ever-worsening flooding and natural disasters, Obama insisted that grim future "is one that we have the power to change." He urged leaders to "rise to this moment," invoking the late Martin Luther King Jr.'s observation that there's such a thing as being too late to a cause."That hour is almost upon us," Obama said.Efforts to secure a climate deal have been hampered by a long-running dispute about whether developing nations share the same burden as industrialized nations that have historically polluted much more. The U.S. and other nations have insisted that all countries chip in under the new agreement.Aiming to put a finer point on that argument, Obama met Monday with President Xi Jinping of China, which has started taking aggressive action to curb emissions, and with India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has argued repeatedly that climate change isn't India's fault.As he sat down with Modi, Obama said he agreed that India has the right to pursue economic development and fight poverty, but said those priorities must also reflect "serious and ambitious action by all nations" to curb its carbon pollution. Modi pledged that India will fulfil its climate responsibilities in full, declaring that "development and protection of the environment go hand in hand."In his meeting with Xi, Obama said nowhere had co-ordination with Beijing been more critical or fruitful than on climate change. He credited U.S. and Chinese leadership with leading 180 nations to make their own pledges to curb emissions in the run-up to the Paris talks."Our leadership on this issue has been absolutely vital," Obama said. China emits about 30 per cent of the world's greenhouse gases and the U.S. about 16 per cent.Yet Obama also invoked hot-button issues that have long vexed U.S.-China relations. The United States has complained bitterly about cyberattacks against the U.S. emanating from China, and Obama has spoken out regularly against China's assertive moves in disputed waters in the East China Sea and South China Sea."Our teams have found ways to work through these tensions in a constructive fashion," Obama said.After their meeting, the White House said Obama had urged China to live up to commitments on cyber that Xi made when he visited the White House in September, and that Obama had "stressed the need to address regional issues, including maritime differences, peacefully and in accordance with international law." Obama also encouraged Xi to move ahead with economic reforms that would let U.S. companies "compete fairly in the Chinese market," the White House said.Xi, speaking through a translator, said that global worries made it even more important for the U.S. and China to work together." The world economy is recovering slowly, terrorism is on the rise, and climate change is a huge challenge. There is more instability and uncertainty in international situations," said the Chinese leader.As the conference kicked off, the Obama administration announced it was pledging $51 million to a global fund to help poorer countries adapt to climate change. The U.S. contribution joins pledges from Germany, Canada, Italy and others to total $248 million.The Obama administration didn't specify where the U.S. dollars would come from. Obama has struggled to convince the Republican-run Congress to fund his climate goals, amid concerns from critics in the U.S. who say his energy plan is unattainable and could be wiped away by his successor.Obama also said the U.S. would participate in a new private-sector partnership aimed at boosting investment in clean energy technology. Announcing the initiative on stage with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, one of the backers of deal, Obama said new, cheaper technologies would be critical to helping poorer nations "skip the dirty phase of development.""That's why the private sector — from inventors to investors — will have a seat at the table," Obama said.Obama capped his day of climate diplomacy at a working dinner with French President Francois Hollande. The leaders and top advisers dined met for an intimate dinner at L'Ambroisie — a chic eatery in Paris' trendy Marais that boasts a coveted Michelin three-star- rating.The president is slated to continue his talks with world leaders on Tuesday. Obama plans to meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and will host a meeting of island nations hit hard by climate change before returning to Washington.___Associated Press writer Josh Lederman in Washington contributed to this report.___Follow Nancy Benac on Twitter at https://twitter.com/nbenac
CLIMATE COUNTDOWN: Gates sparks multinational plan to spend billions on clean energy tech-The Associated Press Nov. 29, 2015 | 7:08 p.m. EST By SYLVIE CORBET, KARL RITTER and SETH BORENSTEIN-us news and world report
Government and business leaders are banking on clean energy technology to fight global warming, kicking off this week’s high-stakes climate change negotiations by pledging billions of dollars to research and develop a technical fix to the planet’s climate woes.Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates, President Barack Obama and French President Francois Hollande will launch a joint initiative on Monday after a diplomatic push in recent weeks ahead of the Paris climate conference.A key goal is to bring down the cost of cleaner energy. At least 19 governments and 28 leading world investors, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, billionaires George Soros and Saudi Prince Alaweed bin Talal, and Jack Ma of China’s Alibaba, have signed on so far.“It’s quite a big deal,” said Jennifer Morgan, global climate director for the World Resources Institute. “It brings a new kind of burst of energy into the conference right at the beginning on something very important.”The U.N. climate summit formally opened Sunday afternoon with a minute of silence for the victims of this month’s Paris attacks and vows not to let terrorism derail efforts to slow or stop climate change. A few kilometers (miles) away in Paris, police trying to secure the nation against new violence sprayed tear gas on protesters who defied a ban on demonstrations and lobbed projectiles.A big sticking point at the climate talks will be money _ how much rich countries should invest help poor countries cope with climate change, how much should be invested in renewable energy, and how much traditional oil and gas producers stand to lose if countries agree to forever reduce emissions.The new initiative is twofold: a public-private project called Mission Innovation, led by governments, and the Gates-led investor group called the Breakthrough Energy Initiative.The governments pledge to double their spending on low or no-carbon energy over the next five years, according to Brian Deese, senior adviser to Obama on climate and energy issues. They include leading energy producers and consumers, such as the U.S. China, India, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Canada, France and Norway. They currently invest about $10 billion a year total, about half of which comes from the U.S., Deese told reporters in Washington.Gates committed $1 billion of his money and was the “intellectual architect” behind the effort to get investors involved, U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said. The business leaders are making their pledges conditional on governments also pledging more money, said a former U.S. government official who is familiar with the plan.President Barack Obama, who arrived in Paris late Sunday night, wrote on his Facebook page that “we'll work to mobilize support to help the most vulnerable countries expand clean energy and adapt to the effects of climate change we can no longer avoid.”The money would focus on research and development of technologies such as energy storage, which could make better use of clean power from wind and solar regardless of the vagaries of weather. It will also look at farming and transport.But a multinational research effort combining the investments of governments, corporations and private individuals could create intellectual property problems.It also remains to be seen how much of this money will involve repackaging old promises, and whether the future funding will be approved in U.S. or other budgets."The Obama administration recognizes that this is a fundamental competitive advantage for the United States,” a former U.S. official said, but getting such funds approved by a Republican-controlled Congress could be difficult.U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz has traveled to several countries to seek support for the plan. “A major driver of the acceleration to work together is climate change,” he told reporters in Washington.
Climate talks: World leaders gather outside Paris to try to save the Earth from overheating-By Karl Ritter And Sylvie Corbet, The Associated Press | The Canadian Press – NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
LE BOURGET, France - With dramatic vows to save future generations from an overheated planet, the largest gathering ever of world leaders began two weeks of talks Monday aimed at producing the most far-reaching pact yet to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and avert environmental havoc."We should ask what will we say to our grandchildren if we fail," British Prime Minister David Cameron said as the U.N. climate summit opened under heavy security on the outskirts of Paris, two weeks after the extremist attacks that left 130 people dead. "Instead of making excuses tomorrow, let's take action today."Even before the gathering, more than 180 countries pledged to cut or curb their emissions, but scientific analyses show that much bigger reductions would be needed to limit man-made warming of the Earth to 2 degrees Centigrade (3.8 degrees Fahrenheit) over pre-industrial times, the internationally agreed-upon goal.The biggest issue facing the 151 heads of state and government at the summit is who should bear most of the burden of closing that gap: wealthy Western nations that have polluted the most historically, or developing countries like China and India that are now the biggest and third-biggest emitters of greenhouse gases? "Addressing climate change should not deny the legitimate needs of developing countries to reduce poverty and improve living standards," Chinese leader Xi Jinping told the conference.The last major climate agreement, the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, required only rich countries to cut emissions, and the U.S. never signed on. Since then, global temperatures and sea levels have continued to rise, and the Earth has seen an extraordinary run of extreme weather, including severe droughts and storms.This new round of talks seeks to produce an agreement that would require all countries, rich and poor, to take action.While the specifics have yet to be worked out, the pact is meant to chart a path toward reduced reliance on coal, oil and gas and expanded use of renewable energy such as wind and solar power.The negotiations will focus on whether emissions targets should be binding or voluntary and how to verify that countries are hitting their targets. Another big issue will be how to provide the finance and technology that developing countries will need to reduce their emissions and cope with the effects of rising seas, intensifying heat waves and floods."The future of the people of the world, the future of our planet, is in your hands," U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told negotiators in his opening remarks. "We cannot afford indecision, half measures or merely gradual approaches. Our goal must be a transformation."China and India say they want the agreement to clearly reflect that industrialized nations bear the biggest responsibility for the problem.President Barack Obama offered assurances that the U.S. isn't trying to shirk its duty."I've come here personally, as the leader of the world's largest economy and the second-largest emitter, to say that the United States of America not only recognizes our role in creating this problem, we embrace our responsibility to do something about it," Obama told the conference.Statistics since 1959 from the U.S. Department of Energy show the United States has been by far the biggest emitter of carbon dioxide, the top man-made greenhouse gas. It has released about 258 trillion tons of carbon dioxide over the past half-century, compared with China's 158 trillion tons, the figures show.China is catching up, though, and is now the world's biggest greenhouse gas polluter, accounting for 28 per cent of the world's current emissions — twice as much as the United States. Beijing has pledged to put a ceiling on its emissions around 2030 as part of the latest negotiations.Developing countries say they need financial support and technology to make the transition to cleaner energy. On the bustling first day of the conference, a number of such initiatives were announced, including one backed by 19 governments and 28 leading global investors, including Bill Gates and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg.Their initiative would provide billions of dollars in investments to research and develop clean energy technology, with the ultimate goal of making it cheaper and more reliable.Separately, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and French President Francois Hollande unveiled an initiative to get rich and poor countries to co-operate on expanding solar power."It's making the dream of universal access to clean energy become more real," Modi said.Many of the leaders said the world must keep the average temperature within 1 degree C (1.8 degrees F) of current levels — and, if possible, to half that, to spare island nations threatened by rising seas. The world has already warmed nearly 1 degree Celsius since the beginning of the industrial age.Beijing on Monday reported one of the worst spells of air pollution in years, saying levels of soot were 25 times what the World Health Organization considers safe. That's a different pollution from carbon dioxide, but both come from burning fossil fuel, especially coal.Unlike the Kyoto Protocol, which had binding emissions targets for wealthy nations, the new deal will be based on a bottom-up approach where countries set their own targets. One of the things being negotiated is a ratchet-up mechanism that would encourage countries to review and improve their targets every five years.___ Associated Press writers Seth Borenstein, Angela Charlton and Nancy Benac in Le Bourget and Stacey Anderson in Washington contributed.
The Latest: US House leader says no taxpayer money should be committed to climate deal-By The Associated Press | The Canadian Press – NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
https://ca.news.yahoo.com/latest-dancers-coffee-national-pride-show-colorful-pavilions-135426481.html (FULL STORY)
PARIS - The latest news from the U.N. climate conference that began Monday in Paris. All times local:9:15 p.m.U.S. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy says the House will not go along if President Barack Obama tries to commit taxpayer money to support a climate accord reached in Paris.He says Congress has the authority to decide how to spend U.S. taxpayer dollars, "and I don't think that's the best use of our money."McCarthy suggested that a must-pass year-end spending bill currently in the works could become the vehicle for language blocking any such expenditure.The California Republican on Monday also criticized Obama's overall approach at the Paris talks, saying he should be focusing on America's progress in switching to natural gas and thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions.The House votes this week on several pieces of legislation aimed at confronting Obama on his climate policies, including taking aim at the administration's controls on power plant emissions.___8:55 p.m.President Barack Obama is capping a day of high-profile climate talks with a quiet dinner at a chic Paris eatery.French President Francois Hollande is hosting Obama, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and other top advisers at L'Ambroisie — one of the finest gastronomic restaurants in the trendy Marais.L'Ambroisie's menu is fit for a king — or an occasional president.According to its website, delicacies like corolla of scallop meet white Alba truffle, and the flavours of tasty lobster fricassee are set off with Saint-Germain mashed peas.It's not aimed at diners with shallow pockets — dinner can cost up to 360 euros ($380).The White House dubbed the outing a "working dinner." The group of 12 sat in a cozy, lavishly decorated private room.Obama told reporters snapping photographs to be careful in the luxurious surroundings, "Don't break the chandelier. You can't afford it."___8:25 p.m.The leaders of six countries and the World Bank have called on economies across the globe to put a price on carbon dioxide emissions to fight global warming.The heads of France, Germany, Chile, Mexico, Ethiopia and Canada all called for some kind of mechanism that essentially charges a price for each ton of carbon dioxide spewed by industry. It could be a simple tax or a more complex carbon credit trading system, they said."We simply cannot afford to continue polluting the planet at the current pace," World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim said. "Carbon pricing is critical for reducing emissions."Kim said that the number of countries, provinces, states or cities putting a price on carbon has tripled in the past year."Cheap and dirty energy is not cheap for the planet or the health of our people," Chilean President Michelle Bachelet said at the Paris climate summit.___8 p.m.Pope Francis has warned climate change negotiators meeting in Paris that "it's now or never" to come up with an agreement to limit global warming.Speaking to reporters en route home from Africa, Francis said Monday the world is "at the limit of suicide" if it doesn't reverse course and move away from its fossil fuel-based economy.Francis pressed his environmental message during his Africa trip, urging world leaders not to let special interests derail a deal — a clear reference to the energy industry that has long fought curbs on the greenhouse gas emissions blamed on global warming.Despite their influence, Francis said he was nevertheless optimistic that something would emerge from Paris. He said: "I hope they will do it, and I'm praying for it."___7:15 p.m.Paris' conference on climate is so crowded with world leaders that some of them are having to wait hours for their turn at the podium — a highly unusual situation for the most powerful people in their respective countries.About 150 leaders showed up, each giving a speech about their plans to fight global warming. After eight hours of speeches, the original schedule is totally out of whack — and it's not over yet.Meanwhile, at a sidelines launch of a clean energy initiative by Bill Gates, more than a dozen heads of state and government waited for Barack Obama for 45 minutes.Some formed small informal discussion groups on the stage, while other preferred to sit. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto conversed with the French Environment Minister Segolene Royal, while Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe talked to Chilean President Michele Bachelet and Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg — until they finally decided to begin without the American president."I'm in charge of the waiting time," French President Francois Hollande, host of the talks, joked when he started his speech.___7:10 p.m.Today's children and their future heirs are getting a lot of attention at an unprecedented diplomatic conference on global warming.British Prime Minister David Cameron, urging fellow world leaders to pursue cuts in man-made carbon dioxide emissions, said "We should ask what will we say to our grandchildren if we fail. ... Instead of making excuses tomorrow, let's take action today."Prince Charles, French President Francois Hollande and the prime minister of Tuvalu were among others who invoked future generations to stress the importance of a long-term deal.More than 150 leaders met Monday in an unusual diplomatic effort to give impetus to two weeks of U.N.-led talks aiming at a new global climate accord.___6:10 p.m.President Barack Obama says the private sector needs to have a seat at the table as the world's governments attempt to curb global warming.He says that governments will set the targets that nations will try to reach, but it will be scientists, private sector investors and workers who will largely determine whether those goals are met.Obama's remarks come as part of an event in which at least 19 governments and 28 investors were announcing billions of dollars toward researching and developing clean energy technology.Obama says Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is correct in noting that improving energy efficiency will only help nations get part of the way toward reaching their targets. New inventions and technology will also be required.He calls the partnership one of the most significant private-public partnerships even forged to accelerate energy innovation.___5:40 p.m.The Paris prosecutor's office says all but nine of the 317 people taken into custody following a demonstration seeking to call attention to climate change have been released.Police forces arrested 341 protesters on Sunday in the French capital after activists clashed with police at the Place de la Republique, a central point for commemorations after the Nov. 13 attacks that killed 130 people. Most were taken into custody.Under a state of emergency, France has banned protests ahead of the climate conference that opened Monday.

Ted Cruz Says Planned Parenthood Gunman Was "Transgender Leftist Activist"-Mic By Jon Levine-NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
It was Texas Senator Ted Cruz who took the prize this past weekend for the most outlandish claim regarding the man who opened fire on a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs, Colorado that left three dead on Friday. With details and facts still emerging over the Friday shooting, the junior senator first took the opportunity to denounce the "vicious rhetoric on the left, blaming those who are pro-life" to reporters in Newton, Iowa, the New York Times reported. Cruz, who called the gunman "deranged" also added that shooter Robert Dear was "registered to vote as a woman" adding, "it's also reported that he was registered as an independent and as a woman and a transgender leftist activist." A Cruz spokesman later clarified to the press that the candidate was not saying any of this himself, but that new information was constantly coming in and it was too soon to jump to conclusions about Dear's political leanings.While it appears that Dear was in fact registered to vote as a woman, no evidence suggests that Dear is either transgender or a "leftist activist." On the contrary, as ThinkProgress pointed out, a New York Times profile of Dear described him as "generally conservative." In addition to targeting the party's consistent bugaboo, Planned Parenthood, Dear was reported to have told police when he was apprehended, "No more baby parts."Other presidential candidates have been jumping into the fray on the tragedy. Donald Trump called the alleged gunman a maniac, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson cited hostility from "both sides," saying "there is no saint here in this," while other candidates have remained silent on the issue.In debates and campaign appearances, Republican presidential hopefuls have trumpeted false reports of baby selling at the organization with former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina memorably telling an audience during a debate that she had seen video footage of a "fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says 'we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.'"While a number of videos have been released showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the transfer of fetal tissue for medical research (FactCheck.org provided evidence that the videos were edited), the footage Fiorina spoke of has never been produced, and her claims have been repeatedly challenged. She, as well as Cruz, have made defunding Planned Parenthood a central part of their presidential campaigns. The violence in Colorado is only the most recent in a long string of attacks Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers have faced from those with opposing political views. Among those attacks have been bomb threats, arson, acid attacks and anthrax threats.With the Colorado shooter alive and in custody, however, truths about Dear's identity and his motivations are bound to come out sooner or later — so stayed tuned.
Suspect in Colorado clinic shooting told he faces murder charge-By Keith Coffman | Reuters – NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Reuters) - The man accused of killing three people and wounding nine in a shooting rampage at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs was told he faces charges including first-degree murder during his first court appearance on Monday.Robert Lewis Dear, 57, appearing by video link from jail, spoke only to confirm that he understood and to tell the judge he had no questions. There was no discussion of the motives during the brief hearing, and formal charges will be filed at a court appearance scheduled for Dec. 9.Planned Parenthood has said reports that Dear told investigators "no more baby parts" after his arrest following Friday afternoon's deadly siege showed he was acting on an anti-abortion agenda.Chief Judge Gil Martinez told Dear, who was in handcuffs and leg irons and strapped into a padded vest, apparently for his own safety, that if convicted, he faces a minimum sentence of life without parole or a maximum of death.District Attorney Dan May said prosecutors have 63 days after Dear's arraignment to decide whether to bring a death penalty case. Documents in the investigation were ordered sealed by the court on Monday."I personally will be part of the prosecution team," May told reporters outside after the hearing.For his appearance by closed-circuit camera from the jail where he is being held without bond, Dear was flanked by Dan King of the state's public defender's office. King defended the Colorado movie massacre gunman, James Holmes.A handful of victims sat in the front of the packed courtroom, watching Dear on a screen. They were ushered out of a different door than the journalists.VIDEO CONTROVERSY- The rampage blamed on the South Carolina native is believed to have been the first deadly attack on a U.S. abortion provider in six years. The Colorado Springs center has been the target of protests by anti-abortion activists.A police officer and two civilians died in the attack, which, according to newly emerging details, began just outside the building, adjacent to a shopping area on the northwest side of Colorado's second-largest city.Ke'Arre Stewart, 29, an Iraq war veteran, was shot in front of the clinic after walking out to talk on his cell phone. Wounded, he ran back inside to warn others to take cover, his brother told NBC News. Stewart died of his wound."I believe that's his military instinct, you know," NBC News quoted his brother, Leyonte Chandler, as saying. "Before his time ran out, I guess that was his main priority ... to help and save other lives."Planned Parenthood already was on heightened alert against threats of violence nationwide. Some affiliates said they would review their security measures further.Several U.S. media outlets, citing unnamed law enforcement sources, have said Dear used the phrase "no more baby parts" in statements he made to investigators after his surrender. Reuters could not independently confirm those reports.The reported comment was widely seen as an apparent reference to secretly recorded videos released months ago that anti-abortion groups have said showed Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted fetal tissue.Planned Parenthood has said the videos were produced to distort the issue of fetal-tissue donations made by the group for scientific research. It says reimbursements the organization received to cover the costs of those donations were neither unlawful nor unethical.Authorities have said they do not know what precipitated the attack and have declined to discuss publicly the suspect's motives.U.S. Justice Department officials have joined the investigation, raising the possibility the federal government could bring a terrorism or civil rights case against Dear.(Reporting by Keith Coffman; Additional reporting by Daniel Wallis and Dan Whitcomb; Writing by Daniel Wallis; Editing by Bill Trott, Bill Rigby and Jonathan Oatis)
Loner will be charged with murder in deadly attack at Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado-By Sadie Gurman, The Associated Press | The Canadian Press – NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The man accused of a deadly shooting rampage at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs was told Monday that he will be charged with first-degree murder in the killing of three people, including a police officer, during the standoff at the facility.Speaking in a raspy voice, white-bearded suspect Robert Lewis Dear appeared via a video hookup from El Paso County Jail, where he has been held since surrendering to police after the five-hour siege on Friday.Dear wore a padded, white vest with black straps and gazed downward during most of the hearing. It was his first appearance in court in the case.Dear responded "no questions" when asked by Chief District Judge Gilbert Martinez if he had any questions about his rights.Public Defender Daniel King, who represented Colorado theatre shooter James Holmes, stood beside Dear and will act as his counsel. Dear is expected to be formally charged on Dec. 9.Victims' relatives sat in the courtroom during the hearing.Dear, 57, is accused of fatally shooting a university police officer who tried to stop the attack, an Iraq war veteran and a mother of two inside the clinic.The rampage sent nine other people to a hospital.Colorado Springs police have declined to disclose any information on a motive for the attack, and a judge ordered the sealing of investigatory court documents at the request of prosecutors.A law enforcement official said Dear told authorities "no more baby parts" after being arrested.The official said the comment was among a number of statements Dear made to authorities after his arrest, making it difficult to know his specific motivation.The law enforcement official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not allowed to publicly discuss the ongoing investigation.U.S. Attorney John Walsh said investigators have been in touch with lawyers from the Justice Department's Civil Rights and National Security divisions, a move that suggests officials could pursue federal charges in addition to state homicide ones. Walsh did not elaborate.One possible avenue could be the 1994 Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, which makes it a crime to injure or intimidate clinic patients and employees."The case may fit the criteria for a federal domestic terrorism case, but based on my experience, I would be very surprised if this is not simply a local prosecution," said Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers, a former U.S. attorney and state attorney general.Planned Parenthood said witnesses believe the gunman was motivated by his opposition to abortion.Suthers, however, said it's unclear whether the shooting was intended to send an ideological message.Whatever authorities decide is sure to be controversial, given the political murkiness of Dear's statements and the debate over Planned Parenthood, which was reignited in July when anti-abortion activists released undercover video they said showed the group's personnel negotiating the sale of fetal organs.The organization has denied seeking any payments beyond legally permitted reimbursement of the costs for donating the organs to researchers.Dear has been described by acquaintances as a reclusive loner who didn't seem to have strong political or social opinions.Neighbours who live near Dear's former South Carolina home say he hid food in the woods and lived by selling prints of his uncle's paintings of Southern plantations and the Masters golf tournament.After he moved to Colorado, he once gave a neighbour pamphlets opposing President Barack Obama."He didn't talk about them or anything. He just said, 'Look them over when you get a chance,'" Zigmond Post said.
France arrests two men 'who tried to join IS in Libya'-AFP-NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
Paris (AFP) - Two French men arrested attempting to join Islamic State fighters in Libya via neighbouring Tunisia are now being held in Paris, a judicial source told AFP Monday.The suspects, aged 19 and 20, who told authorities they were on their way to a training camp so they could fight in Syria, were arrested in southern Tunisia and flown to France on November 13, the day of the Paris attacks.It is the first time French citizens have been held trying to join jihadists in Libya, where an IS affiliate group holds the city of Sirte, the hometown of the country's deposed leader Moamer Kadhafi.The two men, one from Lyon and the other from the southern port of Marseille, did not know each other before meeting up in Tunisia, a source said.The 20-year-old girlfriend of one of the men, a convert to Islam who authorities said had at one stage intended to join her partner in Libya, has also been charged with terrorist offences.Tunisia closed its border with Libya for two weeks after an attack on a bus in which 12 presidential security officers were killed on November 24.Security officials in the north African country believe that the jihadists who carried out the bloody attacks on the Bardo Museum in the capital Tunis in March, and on tourist hotels in Sousse in June, were trained in Libya.
Jury selection begins for officer charged in Gray's death-Associated Press By JULIET LINDERMAN-NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
BALTIMORE (AP) — Jury selection for the first police officer to go to trial in Freddie Gray' s death began Monday with a judge questioning potential jurors about their knowledge of the explosive case, which led to widespread protests and rioting and added fuel to the Black Lives Matter movement.Baltimore Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams conducted initial questioning in a courtroom but planned to interview at least 66 prospective jurors in a private conference room. The large pool of people suggested how difficult the selection process could be.William Porter is one of six officers charged in the death of Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died April 19 of a severe spinal injury he suffered while in police custody.Porter, who is also black, is accused of failing to get medical help for Gray during several stops made by the police van that carried Gray on a 45-minute trip. At the end, officers found Gray unresponsive. He was taken to a hospital and died a week later.The officer is being tried first in part because prosecutors want to use him as a witness in the trials of several other officers. He is charged with manslaughter, assault, misconduct and reckless endangerment.The judge asked 75 potential jurors whether anyone had not heard about the case, the citywide curfew imposed after Gray's death or the settlement paid to his family. No one responded.By standing in response to the judge's questions, 12 jurors indicated they had family members in law enforcement. Thirty-eight indicated they had been a victim or a suspect in a crime, had been to jail or had charges pending against them.Twenty-six people indicated they had strong feelings about the charges against Porter.Williams read aloud more than 200 names of possible witnesses, a list that included more than 100 Baltimore police officers, lawyers and prosecutors.A small group of protesters gathered outside the courthouse. Their chants of "All night, all day, we will fight for Freddie Gray," could be heard throughout the morning proceedings.One prospective juror was taken to a hospital after tripping on courthouse stairs. Court spokeswoman Terri Charles said the woman suffered a knee injury.A verdict is likely to set the tone for the city. If Porter is acquitted, there could be protests and possibly more unrest. A conviction could send shock waves through the city's troubled police department."Everything is at stake. The future of the city is at stake," Police Commissioner Kevin Davis has said.The judge said he expects the trial to wrap up by Dec. 17.Two other officers are black and the three additional officers are white. They will be tried separately beginning in January. Their trials are expected to last until the spring.Gray was initially handcuffed. Later during his van ride, his legs were shackled and he was not put in a seat belt, a violation of department policy, prosecutors have said.Porter told police investigators that arresting Gray "was always a big scene," according to a pretrial filing by defense attorneys. Porter indicated that he knew of a previous arrest in which Gray allegedly tried to kick out the windows of a police vehicle."You know, so he was always, always, like, banging around," Porter said in the statement excerpted in the filing. "It was always a big scene whenever you attempted to arrest Freddie Gray."Defense attorneys say that helps explain Porter's actions during Gray's arrest.For several days after Gray died, the demonstrations were mostly peaceful. But on the day he was buried, looting and rioting started, and businesses were burned down. The unrest resulted in millions of dollars in property damage.The turmoil forced an incumbent mayor to drop out of a re-election campaign and toppled the career of a reform-minded police chief who was unceremoniously fired. The homicide rate soared, and the blood continues to spill on Baltimore's streets at a pace unseen in decades.Davis stepped in as police chief in July amid a crime spike that saw 45 homicides in a single month — a 43-year high.An independent review of the police response to the rioting revealed "major shortcomings," and painted a portrait of an overwhelmed and under-prepared department.Hours before Police Commissioner Anthony Batts was fired in July, the police union issued its own scathing report. Its president called for Batts to "step up."The U.S. Justice Department is conducting a probe into the department stemming from allegations that officers hassled people and used excessive force.Republican Gov. Larry Hogan said Monday that Maryland has been preparing for any disturbances related to the trials ever since he called in the National Guard to help restore order in April. He said his administration's security team has been meeting on an almost weekly basis.
Canada opens refugee processing centre in Jordan, aims to see 500 people a day-By Stephanie Levitz, The Canadian Press | The Canadian Press – NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
AMMAN, Jordan - A trickle of Syrian refugees seeking to leave Jordan flowed into Canada's processing centre in Amman on Sunday, the first day of operations at what will eventually become the hub of much of the Syrian refugee resettlement program.Ninety people were put through a multi-step process, some under the eye of three federal cabinet ministers who travelled to the Jordanian capital to see first hand how their plan to bring 25,000 Syrians to Canada by the end of February actually looks."We have learned also there is positive things to report in terms of progress," said Immigration Minister John McCallum as he stood in the cavernous military exhibition facility now being leased to Canada by the Jordanian government."The processing centre had its first day of operation today, that will ramp up over time and get more intense. We also heard the good news that exit permits are not an issue in Jordan, so that's positive."McCallum was joined by Health Minister Jane Philpott and Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan. They flew to Amman late Saturday, spending the day meeting international aid and UN officials and Jordanian leaders on Sunday and then flying straight back to Ottawa.Canadian reporters were not permitted to report on their visit until they left the country, for what officials said were security reasons, but both the UN and Jordan's King Abudllah II posted word and photos of the trip on Twitter during the day.Refugees whose cases are being processed at the Jordanian facility represent only some of the 15,000 Syrians the government is seeking to resettle itself. Applicants are being told to expect travel by the end of February, the deadline the government has set. McCallum said it's still an achievable goal."Let's be optimistic," he said.Flights will depart from a civilian airport across the way from the centre carrying not just Syrians from Jordan, but also those from Lebanon. But all the final details of how many and when are still being hammered out, said Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan."This being the first day there are a few kinks to work out and we also want to look at how to improve things," he said.An immigration official who briefed the ministers repeatedly noted how plans continued to change and develop, suggesting that while the centre's goal is to process 500 people a day, that workload will be a challenge.The reception point is ready, lined with rows upon rows of grey plastic chairs. The interview booths are set up with white tables and blue banquet chairs flecked with gold. The military has 10 biometric machines ready to go, though on day one only four were in operation.But one key problem right now is capacity for medical screenings.Officials are currently only scheduling medical appointments elsewhere until they can beef up availability of services on site. One option is getting the International Organization for Migration or the Red Cross to run clinics; the other is to have the military deploy a field hospital.Privately-sponsored refugees — who make up the majority of the 10,000 people the government says it will resettle by year's end — will not have their cases flow through the registration centre but are likely to depart on flights from the same airport. Those planes could begin leaving as soon as next week.Those whose cases are being handled by the hundreds of Canadian civil servants and soldiers now in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey, are refugees selected by the United Nations refugee agency from a pool the international body is actively looking to resettle. An estimated 4 million people have been declared refugees from the Syrian war.Some will come from the Zaatari refugee camp, which the ministers visited earlier Sunday. They were briefed by the camp manager and aid organizations on the challenges at hand, including ensuring adequate water supplies and food for the camp's 80,000 residents.Philpott said she was struck by the scope of the issue."While obviously we're all thinking about 25,000 who will come to Canada, we need to remember there are more than a million refugees living here in the country," she said.She'll have a personal reminder to take back — both Philpott and Sajjan purchased paintings created by children at the camp.The one Philpott chose was painted by a 13-year-old boy named Hamza and depicts a woman trudging up a set of stairs, with a yellow sun setting against a blood red sky.On her back, a burden in the shape of Syria. Philpott asked Hamza whom the woman represented, and he said no one in particular, just all women." Because women do carry countries on their backs," Philipott said.Many of the refugees Canada will resettle will be women, some alone, some heads of families.The ministers observed several families being processed through the system Sunday, telling them through translators that Canada is excited to welcome them but didn't have time to speak with them in depth.One surprise confronting Canadians is that the families being referred by the UN are larger than expected. Rather than four or five people, it's often eight or nine. McCallum said he viewed that as a positive."I think given Canada's aging population, not only are the children sweet-looking but they're very good for Canada more generally speaking," he said.Since Nov. 4, 153 Syrian refugees have come and another 928 have been issued visas, according to the government.

Judge sets bond at $1.5 million for Chicago police officer who fatally shot teen 16 times-By Don Babwin, The Associated Press | The Canadian Press – NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
CHICAGO - A judge on Monday set bond at $1.5 million for a white Chicago police officer charged with murder after a squad car video showed him fatally shooting a black teenager 16 times, and the officer's lawyer said he was hopeful his client could be released in the "very near future."Officer Jason Van Dyke has been locked up since Nov. 24, when prosecutors charged him with first-degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. On the same day, authorities released the dash cam video that shows McDonald — armed with a small knife and walking down a street on the city's southwest side — being shot repeatedly by the 37-year-old Van Dyke.The bond amount means Van Dyke will need $150,000 to be released.Attorney Dan Herbert said the officer is pleased the judge set a bond amount after ordering him held last week without bond. He said Van Dyke is "very scared about the consequences he is facing."Also on Monday, an online threat against the University of Chicago that led the school to cancel all classes and activities appeared to have been motivated by the fatal shooting, federal authorities said.Jabari R. Dean, 21, of Chicago, threatened to kill 16 white male students or staff at the school on Chicago's South Side, according to the criminal complaint. Dean was arrested Monday morning and is charged with transmitting a threat in interstate commerce.The threat was posted Saturday, just days after the city released a video of Van Dyke shooting McDonald 16 times. The video sparked days of protests in Chicago, including one that blocked off part of Michigan Avenue in the downtown shopping district known as the Magnificent Mile on Black Friday.A separate judge had ordered the video released the previous week. On Tuesday, Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez said she had decided a few weeks earlier to charge Van Dyke with murder and was planning to announce charges in a month. But knowing the intense public anger that the sight of the "chilling" video would generate, she announced the charges before the video's release in an effort to encourage calm.Herbert last week reassured the judge that Van Dyke is not a flight risk, explaining that he has deep ties to the community, lives with his wife and two children in Chicago and does not possess a passport.In the audio-free video, McDonald can be seen walking down the middle of a four-lane street. He appears to veer away from two officers as they emerge from a vehicle, drawing their guns. One of the officers, Van Dyke, opens fire from close range. McDonald spins around and crumples to the ground. The officer continues to fire.Police have said that McDonald was carrying a knife and an autopsy revealed that he had PCP, a hallucinogenic drug, in his system. Alvarez said last week that the 3-inch (7.62-centimetre) blade recovered from the scene had been folded into the handle.Herbert maintains that his client feared for his life, acted lawfully and that the video does not tell the whole story. He told reporters Monday that while the video alone makes it seem like the shooting wasn't justified, he has information that others don't have, and that Van Dyke "absolutely" can defend his actions in court.Fraternal Order of Police president Dean Angelo said a fund has been set up to help Van Dyke post bond, though he didn't know how many officers have contributed or how much money has been raised.
NATO eager to size up Trudeau government as ISIL threat emerges in Libya-By Murray Brewster, The Canadian Press | The Canadian Press –NOV 30,15-YAHOONEWS
BRUSSELS - Stephane Dion hasn't even arrived yet in Brussels, but a lineup is already forming to meet Canada's new foreign affairs minister.Canadian staff at NATO headquarters are fielding requests from alliance members keen to size up the new Liberal government's point man on the evolving confrontation with Russia and the growing influence of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in Libya.On Tuesday and Wednesday, Dion will meet foreign ministers from the 28 NATO member countries. Several of them are eager to take stock of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's plan to end Canada's participation in the bombing campaign against extremists in Iraq and Syria and refocus military effort on training local forces.While NATO is not formally involved in the 62-country, U.S.-led coalition against ISIL, its members see Canada's plans as important.One of Dion's most important tasks will be to reassure allies that the country remains stalwart, especially in light of the terror attacks in Paris and the security lockdown in Brussels.NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, as well as the American and British permanent representatives to the alliance, are underscoring growing concern about ISIL domination of ungoverned territory along the Libyan coast, mostly in Sirte."NATO is stepping up its efforts to deal with the challenges from the south," Stoltenberg said Monday, noting that the alliance's 40,000 strong rapid reaction force — originally conceived as a bulwark against Russian expansion in the east — could easily be deployed to face ISIL-back threats in the south.Surveillance is being increased in the region with the stationing of drones in Sicily, he said.The Islamic State presence in Libya is not new, but it is swelling and the fear it could be used as a springboard to launch Paris-style attacks in Europe is growing. NATO finds itself in an ironic position because it was the alliance's air campaign in 2011 that unseated dictator Moammar Gadhafi and helped create the instability on which ISIL feeds.Federica Mogherini, the European Union's high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, will join the NATO discussion on Tuesday as that organization also comes to grips with the threat. Particularly significant for Canada, there will be a review of what alliance countries are contributing and are prepared to further contribute to the U.S.-led coalition.Doug Lute, the U.S. ambassador to NATO, said he expects to see strong support from all allies who are contributing and military efforts will be "sustained and maybe even expanded."Concern about fallout from the downing of a Russian fighter which crossed the Turkish border from Syrian airspace last week has also gripped the meeting. Stoltenberg said the alliance's independent data backs Turkey's version of events. Moscow has repeatedly denied that its warplane crossed the border.Stoltenberg appealed for both sides to de-escalate the crisis and said Russia should be targeting "our common enemy" in the Islamic State, rather than focusing its bombing campaign on opponents of the Syrian regime.A resurgent Russia and its proxy war in Ukraine were to be the subject of discussion at dinner Tuesday.Some NATO members urged a kid glove approach at the Wales Summit a little over a year ago and suggested the invasion of Crimea was a "one-off." However, a senior eastern European diplomat, speaking on background because of the sensitivity of the issue, said those voices have largely been silenced by the Putin government's ongoing support for rebels in eastern Ukraine.Adam Thomson, Britain's ambassador to NATO, was more blunt, saying the world has changed dramatically in the last 12 months."What NATO is evolving to meet is totally new and so the way in which the alliance meets these threats is going to have to be totally new," he said."NATO is going to be taken back to the 20th century. It's not going to be — as some people assume — a return to the Cold War in any way. It's going to have to be completely new answers to completely new challenges."
