THE POLL LEADERS FOR PRESIDENT OF THE USA AFTER GODLESS OBAMA SUNNI MUSLIM GETS THE BOOT TO THE CURB IN 2016.
T.D HALE SAYS GOD TOLD HIM DONALD TRUMP WILL WIN THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION. AND THEN TRUMP WILL BECOME THE 45TH PRESIDENT OF AMERICA. WE WILL SEE-IF ITS FROM GOD-THIS DREAM WILL COME TO PASS.
“The body of Christ is divided and not only are they divided, they are torn and their minds are in a state of confusion. Because of the confusion they will elect a madman whose heart is full of lies and unstable – a man of deception who speaks those words that sound as if truth, but underneath it is lies to gain the people’s trust and they will fall for it.Trump will win the nomination and win the Presidency. T.D HALE-SO IT LOOKS LIKE AMERICA WILL GET WHAT THEY DESERVE-NOT WHAT THEY TRUELY WANT.

LAG B'OMER - 33RD DAY OF THE COUNTING OF THE OMER TO 50 DAYS TO SHAVUOT- One reason given for the holiday is as the day of passing of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai. Modern Jewish tradition links the holiday to the Bar Kokhba Revolt against the Roman Empire (132-135 CE). In Israel, it is celebrated as a symbol for the fighting Jewish spirit.

-MISSING FLIGHT MS-804-A320-232 FROM PARIS TO EGYPT-TERROR SUSPECTED DOWNING.
CAIRO (AP) — Human remains retrieved from the crash site of EgyptAir Flight 804 have burn marks and are very small in size, suggesting an explosion on board may have downed the aircraft in the east Mediterranean, a senior Egyptian forensics official said Tuesday.“The logical explanation is that an explosion brought it down,” the official told The Associated Press.The official, who is part of the Egyptian team investigating the crash that killed all 66 people on board the flight from Paris to Cairo early last Thursday, has personally examined the remains at a Cairo morgue. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information.However, the head of the government’s forensic agency later Tuesday dismissed as speculation all media reports about human remains from the crash indicating an explosion.“Whatever has been published is baseless and mere assumptions,” Hisham Abdel-Hamid told Egypt’s state MENA news agency.A statement from the government’s investigative committee also warned media outlets to be cautious about what is published “to avoid chaos and spreading false rumors and damaging the state’s high interests and national security.”The Egyptian expert told the AP that all 80 pieces that have been brought to Cairo so far are very small. “There isn’t even a whole body part, like an arm or a head,” said the official, adding that one piece was the left part of a head.He said the body parts are “so tiny” and that at least one piece of a human arm has signs of burns — an indication it might have “belonged to a passenger sitting next to the explosion.”“But I cannot say what caused the blast,” he said. He did not say whether traces of explosives were found on the human remains retrieved so far.The expert’s comments mark a new dramatic twist surrounding last week’s crash, which still remains a mystery. The plane’s black boxes have yet to be found and photographs of retrieved debris published by the Egyptian military over the weekend were not charred and appear to show no signs of fire.Egyptian officials have said they believe terrorism is a more likely explanation than equipment failure, or some other catastrophic event, and some aviation experts have said the erratic flight reported by the Greek defense minister suggests a bomb blast or a struggle in the cockpit.But so far no hard evidence has emerged on the cause of the disaster.Also Tuesday, the investigative team led by Ayman al-Moqadem issued its second report on the case, saying that so far pieces of the plane wreckage have been taken to Cairo in 18 batches. It added that the priority is to locate the black boxes and to retrieve more bodies.France’s aviation accident investigation agency would not comment on anything involving the bodies or say whether any information has surfaced in the investigation to indicate an explosion.A French patrol boat took one doctor on board to help with searches when and if the body parts are found. But the French Navy said that if it finds debris and body parts, this would be first reported to Egyptian authorities and French justice officials.In a search for clues, family members of the victims gave been arriving during the day Tuesday at the Cairo morgue forensics’ department to give DNA samples to help identify the remains of their kin, a security official said. The official also spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to reporters.Also, a technical team from Egypt’s forensic medicine department went to a hotel near the Cairo International Airport where relatives of the victims are gathered to take DNA samples to use in identifying the bodies.The EgyptAir crash shocked a nation struggling to revive its ailing economy and contain a resilient insurgency by Islamic militants.Safety onboard Egyptian aircraft and at the country’s airports have been under close international scrutiny since a Russian airliner crashed in the Sinai Peninsula last October, killing all 224 people on board, shortly after taking off from an Egyptian resort. The crash — claimed by the Islamic State affiliate in Sinai and blamed by Moscow on an explosive device planted on board — decimated Egypt’s lucrative tourism industry, which had already been battered by years of turmoil in the country.If mechanical or structural failure is found to be behind the crash of Flight 804, that would deal another severe blow to both tourism and the national carrier. If downed by an act of terror, the Egyptians can point to security at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, from which the plane took off.Egypt has dispatched a submarine to search for the flight’s black boxes and a French ship joined the international effort to locate the wreckage and search for the plane’s data recorders.Ships and planes from Britain, Cyprus, France, Greece and the United States are also taking part in the search for the debris from the aircraft, including the black boxes.___Associated Press writers Angela Charlton and Sylvie Corbet in Paris contributed to this report.
Egypt air crash: 2nd Canadian aboard plane ID'd as Medhat Tanious-[CBC]-May 23, 2016-yahoonews
The second Canadian aboard the EgyptAir plane that crashed into the Mediterranean Sea last week has been identified as Medhat Tanious of Toronto.A French ship joined the international effort to hunt for the black boxes and other wreckage of the flight on Monday, searching for clues to what brought the plane down, as Greek and Egyptian authorities diverged on what happened to the plane during the crucial final minutes before it crashed into the Mediterranean, killing all 66 people on board. Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion said after the crash there were two Canadians on board.Tanious's niece, who lives in Australia, confirmed her uncle was among the passengers aboard doomed jet. He was a Canadian citizen, travelling on an Egyptian passport."He made sure that you always laughed," Viola Nasserallah said of her uncle. "His mission was to make everyone around him cheerful. He had a heart of gold."Tanious's daughter also confirmed to CBC News that her father was on the plane.According the St. George and St. Rueiss Coptic Orthodox Church, of which Tanious was a member, he had a wife and three children."Our prayers are with the all the families affected by the tragedy of Egypt Air flight MS804," the Toronto church said in a Facebook post.Canadian Marwa Hamdy was also killed when the jet crashed. A friend of the woman told CBC News that Hamdy was from Saskatoon and moved to Cairo about 10 years ago after marrying an Egyptian. The IBM project manager and mother of three had been returning from visiting family in Paris. Five days after the air disaster, questions remain over what happened to the doomed jet before it disappeared off radar at around 2.45 a.m. local time Thursday. Egyptian authorities said they believe terrorism is a more likely explanation than equipment failure, and some aviation experts have said the erratic flight reported by the Greek defence minister suggests a bomb blast or a struggle in the cockpit. But so far no hard evidence has emerged.A 2013 report by the Egyptian ministry of civil aviation records that the same Airbus 320 made an emergency landing in Cairo that year, shortly after taking off on its way to Istanbul, when one of the engines "overheated." Aviation experts have said that overheating is uncommon yet is highly unlikely to cause a crash.-Plane didn't swerve, Egyptian official says-The head of Egypt's state-run provider of air navigation services, Ehab Azmy told The Associated Press that the plane did not swerve or lose altitude before it disappeared off radar, challenging an earlier account by Greece's defense minister. Azmy, head of the National Air Navigation Services Company, said that in the minutes before the plane disappeared it was flying at its normal altitude of 11,277 metres, according to the radar reading."That fact degrades what the Greeks are saying about the aircraft suddenly losing altitude before it vanished from radar," he added."There was no turning to the right or left, and it was fine when it entered Egypt's FIR [flight information region], which took nearly a minute or two before it disappeared."According to Greek Defence Minister Panos Kammenos, the plane swerved wildly and dropped to 3,048 metres before it fell off radar. Greek civil aviation authorities said all appeared fine with the flight until air traffic controllers were to hand it over to their Egyptian counterparts. The pilot did not respond to their calls, and then the plane vanished from radars.It was not immediately possible to explain the discrepancy between the Greek and Egyptian accounts of the air disaster.-Child's remains found-Human remains of the victims arrived at a morgue in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, where forensic experts were to carry out DNA tests, according to the head of EgyptAir, Safwat Masalam.A security official at Cairo morgue said family members had arrived at the building to give DNA samples to match with the remains, which included those of a child. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the press.Egypt, which is sending a submarine to search for the flight recorders, has also refuted earlier reports alleging that search crews had found the plane's black boxes — which could offer vital clues to what happened in the final minutes of the flight.Ships and planes from Britain, Cyprus, France, Greece and the United States are taking part in the search for the debris from the aircraft, including the black boxes. Some wreckage, including human remains, has already been recovered. -Plane made emergency landing 3 years ago-The official website of the Egyptian Aircraft Accident Investigation Directorate, which is affiliated with the Ministry of Civil Aviation, gave details of a 2013 incident in which the plane in question had to make an emergency landing. It said that the EgyptAir A320 GCC took off from Cairo airport heading to Istanbul at 2:53 and that when it reached an altitude of 24,000 feet the pilot noticed that one engine had overheated. A warning message appeared on the screen reading, "engine number 1 stall." After checking on best measures to take, the pilot headed back to Cairo airport where a maintenance engineer inspected the engine, disconnected it, and sent it to be repaired. There were no injuries, no fire, and no damage to the plane, the report read, adding that the engine had a technical problem. The report is one of over 60 reports classified as incidents, serious incidents and accidents that took place between 2011 and 2014. Among them, 20 involved A320 Airbus planes, the highest among any other aircraft. Experts contacted by AP said that while an overheated engine is not a common problem, it is unlikely to cause a crash.

OZONE DEPLETION JUDGEMENT ON THE EARTH DUE TO SIN
26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold,(7X OR 7-DEGREES HOTTER) as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people,(ISRAEL) and healeth the stroke of their wound.
27 Behold, the name of the LORD cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened,(DAY LIGHT HOURS SHORTENED) there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake (ISRAELS SAKE) those days shall be shortened (Daylight hours shortened)(THE ASTEROID HITS EARTH HERE)
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

At the Islamic Circle of North America Centre in Edmonton, Umar Qasim hands out boxes.Just months ago he was giving these boxes to Syrian refugees, but now he's packing them for Fort McMurray evacuees.Qasim calls the boxes a "home starter kit" and said they contain plates, bowls, cups, cutting boards, knives, pots and pans, toothbrushes, toothpaste and more. "They're basic necessities for any person moving to a new place. Kitchen items and bathroom items. We are packing them up in boxes and giving them to Fort McMurray evacuees."Qasim said he got the idea for the starter kits when the Edmonton chapter of the Islamic Circle of North America (INCA) was helping Syrian refugees get on their feet.The refugees would be staying in hotels, Qasim said, and when they would move to apartments they lacked several key items."At that time when we were volunteering with them, we realized that when they moved out they didn't have any of this in their homes."The idea to help those from Fort McMurray came when he saw that some of the evacuees were in a similar situation. "We thought that this is something that these Fort McMurray evacuees, when they are moving to new apartments, they could use these."INCA also put on a barbecue on Monday, and Qasim said he hopes that "it provides them with a little bit of normalcy."'I don't think it's any place to bring children'-The evacuees are set to make staged returns to their hometown starting June 1st, but many don't know what they're returning to. Patti Golding was one of the evacuees at the INCA event and said she's planning on returning to the city next week, but not for long. "Seeing what's there, what's not there and maybe grabbing a few things and then heading back this way for a couple more weeks until there are more services available," she said.She's worried the community might not be livable right now. It is likely to be far from the home they once had."I wouldn't want to live there yet. I think there's a lot of uncertainties," said Golding.Jennifer Samms will also be returning home to Fort McMurray, but she won't be bringing her two daughters."I don't think it's any place to bring children," she said. "Most of the city, I'm expecting to see, like, still ash everywhere over everything , like vehicles that people left behind, properties abandoned."Like, it's going to be overwhelming."

ARABS REJECT NETANYAU DIRECT PEACE TALKS PROPOSAL.
Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah dismissed Tuesday an Israeli proposal for direct negotiations instead of a French multilateral peace initiative.“Time is short,” Hamdallah said. “[Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu is trying to buy time… but this time he will not escape the international community.”Hamdallah made the comments as he met French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, who has held talks in Israel and the Palestinian territories this week to push Paris’s peace initiative.The June 3 Paris summit has been welcomed by the Palestinians, who suspended a planned UN resolution condemning Israeli settlements to focus on the French efforts. Israel, however, has consistently argued that peace can only be achieved through direct negotiations between the two sides, rather than in international forums.During a Monday meeting with Valls, Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that the international conference was being used by the Palestinian leadership as a way to avoid direct talks with Israel.“The Palestinian Authority does not see the French initiative as an inducer for negotiations, but as a way to avoid them,” he said.Instead, Netanyahu said, he would be willing to meet Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas “in Paris or wherever,” and hold face-to-face negotiations without international mediation. “Every difficult issue will be on the table,” he said.Valls said he would welcome direct negotiations and would speak to French President Francois Hollande about the proposal.During his visit to the region, Valls met with senior Israeli and Palestinian officials in an effort to bolster support for the conference. He arrived in Israel on Sunday and is set to return to France Tuesday afternoon.Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has welcomed the summit, which will host a meeting of foreign ministers from 20 countries including Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan, without the Israelis and Palestinians present.According to the plan, another conference would then be held in the autumn, this time with the Israelis and Palestinians in attendance. The goal would be to eventually restart negotiations that would lead to a Palestinian state.Negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians have been at a standstill since a US-led initiative collapsed in April 2014.AFP contributed to this report.
Christians in England, Wales now outnumbered by people of no religion-Churches steadily losing members, study finds, as number of unaffiliated citizens grows-By Daniel Douek May 24, 2016, 4:42 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The number of people in England and Wales who self-identify as having no religion now outnumbers adherents of Christianity after nearly doubling between 2011 and 2014, according to a new analysis, The Guardian reported Tuesday.The analysis is meant to refresh the current research on the subject, which was suffering from outdated statistics. It represents data from British Social Attitudes surveys compiled between 1983 and 2014.While those who define themselves as Christians, regardless of their denomination, comprised 43.8 percent of the population as of 2014, those who identify themselves as having no religion, concisely referred to as “nones,” made up 48.5 percent, almost doubling in size since the last figures were presented in 2011, when they made up 25 percent of the population.The analysis was published by Stephen Bullivant, senior lecturer in theology and ethics at St Mary’s Catholic University in Twickenham, southwest London, who compiled and analyzed data on the subject collected by British Social Attitudes surveys over 30 years.“The main driver is people who were brought up with some religion now saying they have no religion,” Bullivant told The Guardian.“What we’re seeing is an acceleration in the numbers of people not only not practicing their faith on a regular basis, but not even ticking the box. The reason for that is the big question in the sociology of religion.”Bullivant’s report centered on England and Wales, and did not present data on Northern Ireland or Scotland.Northern Ireland stands in stark contrast to England and Wales, with only seven percent of the population belonging to religions that aren’t Christian or claiming to belong to no religion.However, in April a Scottish Social Attitudes survey found that secularism was on the rise in Scotland as well, albeit not as rapidly as in England and Wales. According to the survey, over half of the Scottish people, 52 percent of the population, is not religious, compared to 40 percent in 1999.In February 2016 the Church of England announced it expected church attendance to fall continually for the next 30 years, underlining concerns about rising indifference to organized religion within the younger generations.Bullivant’s report also demonstrates that Catholic and Anglican churches are losing members much faster than they’re able to attract them.For every person recruited to the Anglican church, 12 are lost, according to the report. In the ranks of the Catholic church the situation is nearly as bad, with ten people opting out of Catholicism for every one recruited.Bullivant demonstrated in his report that the conversion efforts made by churches in England succeed in drawing in believers from other denominations, but not nonbelievers.“There’s a kind of denominational musical chairs,” Bullivant told The Guardian. “No one is making serious inroads into the non-Christian population.”Bullivant said, “Churches need to take this kind of data very seriously,” expressing hope that his research act as a catalyst for further research on the matter.In a response to a request for comment by The Guardian, a spokesperson for the Church of England said: “The increase in those identifying as ‘no faith’ reflects a growing plurality in society rather than any increase in secularism or humanism. We do not have an increasingly secular society as much as a more agnostic one.”“In a global context, adherence to religion is growing rather than decreasing. Christianity remains the world’s largest religion with over 2 billion adherents. In the UK the latest census found the overwhelming majority of people to have a faith.”The Catholic church did not respond to a request for comment.
BDS backer, critics of Israel among Democrats drafting party platform-Philosopher Cornel West, president of the Arab American Institute James Zogby, and Rep. Keith Ellison named to committee, day after Sanders urges focus on Palestinian rightsBy Ron Kampeas May 24, 2016, 1:35 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
WASHINGTON (JTA) — The Democratic Party platform drafting committee is top heavy with veterans of political battles over Israel — some friendly, some critical, and including at least one major backer of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.The Democratic National Committee named the committee on Monday, a day after reports emerged that Bernie Sanders, an Independent senator from Vermont running for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, wants the platform to elevate the issue of Palestinian rights.The names signal that the robust debate on Israel that has rattled the party’s relationship with the mainstream pro-Israel community over the past two years will continue through the party convention in Philadelphia in July.Sanders, the first Jewish candidate to win major party nominating contests, named five of the committee’s members, while Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state and front-runner in the party’s presidential primaries, named six. The remaining four were named by the DNC’s chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., among the most prominent Jewish leaders in the party.Three of the Sanders backers on the committee — Cornel West, a philosopher and social activist; James Zogby, the president of the Arab American Institute, and Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim elected to Congress — are known in part for their criticisms of Israel.West is a prominent BDS backer and Zogby has spoken forcefully against attempts to marginalize the movement. Ellison has called for greater consideration of Palestinian rights, but also has close ties to his home state Jewish community and says Israel’s security must be taken into account.The standout appointment is West, a fiery speaker who has called the Gaza Strip “the ‘hood on steroids” and, in 2014, wrote that the crimes of Hamas “pale in the face of the US-supported Israeli slaughters of innocent civilians.”Zogby and Ellison are longtime insiders who have taken leadership roles in the party, so their inclusion is not extraordinary.Among the six Clinton backers is Wendy Sherman, the former deputy secretary of state who was a lead negotiator in the Iran nuclear talks. Sherman, who has spoken lovingly of her involvement in Jewish life in suburban Maryland, was wounded by the tough criticisms of the deal from Israel’s government and centrist pro-Israel organizations.Another Clinton appointee is Neera Tanden, the president of the Center for American Progress who in recent years has taken a lead role in trying to establish a dialogue between Israel’s government and the American progressive community.Wasserman Schultz’s picks include Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., who will be the committee’s chairman. Cummings is close to his state’s Jewish community and for years has run a program sending a dozen or so black high-schoolers from the Baltimore area to Israel.Another of her picks is former Rep. Howard Berman, D-Calif., who is also close to the pro-Israel community. Berman shepherded through far-reaching Iran sanctions in 2010 when he was chairman of the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee.Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., also a Wasserman Schultz pick, has been critical of Israel in her career, joining 59 House members, including Ellison, in a letter after the 2009 Gaza War urging the Obama administration to pressure Israel to allow increased humanitarian relief into the strip. She also joined Ellison in speaking against a resolution condemning the 2009 UN report on the war, which was reviled by Israel’s government and the mainstream pro-Israel community.Wasserman Schultz also named Bonnie Schaefer, the former CEO of Claire’s the mall jewelery chain, and a philanthropist who is involved with the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the Weizmann Institute of Science.The drafting committee presents the document to the full platform committee, which votes on it during the convention. Usually there are few objections. In 2012, however, the drafting committee omitted from the draft platform recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. New language including the recognition was passed during the meeting of the full committee, but not without objections and boos.All four of the Congress members on the drafting committee – Cummings, Lee, Ellison and Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., a Clinton appointee – are endorsed by the political action committee affiliated with J Street, the liberal Middle East policy group.

Greek police evacuate hundreds from Idomeni refugee camp-[The Canadian Press]-Costas Kantouris, The Associated Press-May 24, 2016-yahoonews
IDOMENI, Greece - Greek authorities sent hundreds of police into the country's largest informal refugee camp Tuesday to support the gradual evacuation of the Idomeni site on the Macedonian border.The left-led government has pledged that police will not use force, and says the operation is expected to last about a week to 10 days. Journalists were blocked from covering inside the campBy about midday 23 buses carrying a total 1,110 people had left Idomeni, heading to new refugee camps in northern Greece, police said, while earth-moving machinery was used to clear abandoned tents. No violence was reported.Vicky Markolefa, a representative of the Doctors Without Borders charity, said the operation was proceeding "very smoothly" and without incident. "We hope it will continue like that," she said.The camp, which sprang up at an informal pedestrian border crossing for refugees and migrants heading north to wealthier European nations, was home to an estimated 8,400 people — including hundreds of children — mostly from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.At its peak, when Macedonia shut its border in March, the camp housed more than 14,000, but numbers have declined as people began accepting authorities' offers of alternative places to stay.In Geneva, UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards said the evacuation appeared to be taking place "calmly," and the U.N. refugee agency was sending more staffers to Idomeni."As long as the movement of people from Idomeni is ... voluntary in nature (and) that we're not seeing use of force, then we don't have particular concerns about that," he said."It often does help move people into more organized sites, when they're willing to move to those places," he added.In Idomeni, most have been living in small camping tents pitched in fields and along railroad tracks, while aid agencies have set up large marquee-style tents to help house people. Greek authorities have sent in cleaning crews regularly and have provided portable toilets, but conditions have been precarious at best, with heavy rain creating muddy ponds.Recently the camp had begun taking on an image of semi-permanence, with refugees setting up small makeshift shops selling everything from cooking utensils to falafel and bread.More than 54,000 refugees and migrants have been trapped in financially struggling Greece since countries further north shut their land borders to a massive flow of people escaping war and poverty at home. Nearly a million people have passed through Greece, the vast majority arriving on islands from the nearby Turkish coast.In March, the European Union reached an agreement with Turkey meant to stem the flow and reduce the number of people undertaking the perilous sea crossing to Greece, where many have died when their overcrowded, unseaworthy boats sank. Under the deal, anyone arriving clandestinely on Greek islands from the Turkish coast after March 18 faces deportation to Turkey unless they successfully apply for asylum in Greece.But few want to request asylum in the country, which has been struggling with a deep, six-year financial crisis that has left unemployment hovering at around 24 per cent.Journalists were barred from the camp during the evacuation operation. An estimated 700 police were participating in the operation.Greek authorities are also eager to reopen a railway line — the country's main freight train line to the Balkans — that runs through the camp and has been blocked by protesting camp residents since March 20.Anastassios Saxpelidis, a spokesman for Greek transport companies, said Tuesday that the 66-day closure has cost transporters about 6 million euros.Giorgos Kyritsis, a government spokesman on immigration, said the line should open "in coming days."The government has been trying for months to persuade people to leave Idomeni and go to organized camps. This week it said its campaign of voluntary evacuations was already working, with police reporting that eight buses carrying about 400 people left Idomeni Sunday. Others took taxis heading to Thessaloniki or a nearby town of Polycastro.On the eve of the evacuation operation, few at the camp appeared to welcome the news."It's not good ... because we've already been here for three months and we'll have to spend at least another six in the camps before relocation," said Hind Al Mkawi, a 38-year-old refugee from Damascus, told The Associated Press on Monday evening.Abdo Rajab, a 22-year-old refugee from Raqqa in Syria, has spent the past three months in Idomeni, and is considering paying smugglers to be sneaked into Germany."We hear that tomorrow we will all go to camps," he said. "I don't mind, but my aim is not reach the camps but to go Germany."
Drop in deaths in Mediterranean is hopeful sign, migration body says-[Reuters]-By Stephanie Nebehay-May 24, 2016-YAHOONEWS
GENEVA (Reuters) - Fewer migrants are dying as they try to cross the Mediterranean to Europe, which may reflect better management of refugee flows and swifter rescue operations, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said on Tuesday.So far this year 1,370 migrants and refugees have perished at sea, nearly 25 percent fewer than in the same period last year, IOM spokesman Joel Millman said. An estimated 191,134 people have arrived by boat so far this year in Italy, Greece, Cyprus and Spain.The death toll included 13 in May, none of them on the eastern Mediterranean route between Turkey and Greece, where arrivals have slowed to a trickle since the European Union struck an agreement with Turkey to get it to curb the flow.This compared with 95 deaths in May a year ago and 330 in May 2014. More than 3,770 people are estimated to have died in the whole of 2015, most of them by drowning after their flimsy, overloaded boats capsized."Obviously now that the Turkey-Greece route appears suspended for the time being, we hope that this is the beginning of a sound management policy of refugees and migrants who wish to make the crossing and don't take these enormous risks," Millman told a news briefing.Some 2,725 migrants were rescued attempting to reach Europe from Libya over the past 24 hours by various vessels, he said. IOM also had reports that Libya's coastguard had turned back 850 migrants.IOM has had greater access to Libya since a U.N.-backed national unity government was formed last month. The agency is helping to organise charter flights to repatriate sub-Saharan migrants who agree to take a package or receive a re-integration grant."Those are also key developments that indicate that it's possible, and I want to stress that it's possible, that the period of stark lethality that has been going on since 2013 may have run its course by now," Millman said. "Maybe we'll see a safer summer than we had anticipated a few weeks ago."(This story corrects the headline as IOM is an inter-governmental agency, not an NGO)(Reporting by Stephanie Nebehay; Editing by Mark Trevelyan)

Tens of thousands need aid after deadly cyclone pounds Bangladesh, Sri Lanka-[By Nita Bhalla]-May 24, 2016-YAHOONEWS
NEW DELHI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Tens of thousands of people in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka need aid including clean drinking water, dry food rations and medicines after a deadly cyclone hammered the South Asia region, aid agencies said on Tuesday.With wind speeds reaching 90 kph (56 mph) and heavy rains, cyclone Roanu struck Bangladesh on Saturday, after buffeting India and Sri Lanka in the Bay of Bengal - killing at least 120 people and affecting hundreds of thousands more in the region.Aid workers said Roanu's torrential rains triggered flooding, landslides and tidal surges mostly in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh - ripping apart thousands of rickety homes, burying entire villages and inundating swathes of farmland."Tens of thousands of poor families will have lost most of their assets - not just their houses, but also their food stores, seasonal crops and vital livestock such as cows, goats and ducks," said Shakeb Nabi, Christian Aid's Bangladesh head."Access to food, safe drinking water, health supplies and sanitation materials is limited in some villages. Water points have been ruined, ground water contaminated and agricultural land destroyed."In Sri Lanka, where more than a week of heavy rains has triggered the worst flooding in 25 years, the United Nations said it was worried about the spread of diseases due to large amounts of standing water.The World Health Organization said there was an increased risk of vector borne diseases like malaria, water borne and diarrheal diseases, the bacterial disease leptospirosis, fungal diseases and acute respiratory infections."Prevention measures to combat such diseases are essential," it added.Roanu is the first cyclone of the season, which generally lasts from April to December, with severe storms often causing mass evacuations from coastal low-lying villages and widespread crop and property damage.-RUSHING IN RELIEF-Aid agencies in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka said they had begun distributing relief in the worst affected districts and foreign aid had started arriving in Sri Lanka from countries including India, Pakistan and Singapore.Half a million people have had their lives disrupted in Bangladesh's low-lying coastal areas such as Barisal and Chittagong, and over 255,000 people are affected in Sri Lankan districts including Kegalle, Gamapaha and the capital Colombo in the west."We have pre-positioned household materials and hygiene kits that we can dispatch to affected areas and distribute to communities in urgent need," said Senait Gebregziabher, country director for Plan International."These materials will be essential as children and families affected by the cyclone, particularly those forced to leave their homes, will most likely be seeking food, shelter, basic sanitation and access to clean water."Sri Lanka has reported 94 deaths and 107 people missing. Bangladesh said at least 24 people had died and India reported two deaths.U.N. emergency officials said Roanu also brought heavy rains and flooding to coastal eastern and southern India and western parts of Myanmar, but the impact was less severe.(Reporting by Nita Bhalla.

Europe grows Galileo sat-nav system-[Agence France-Presse]-May 23, 2016-yahoonews
Paris (AFP) - Europe's Galileo sat-nav system, a rival to America's GPS, should move closer to operation with the launch Tuesday of a fresh pair of satellites to join a dozen already in space.Orbiters 13 and 14 are scheduled to blast off on a Russian Soyuz rocket from Europe's spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, at 0848 GMT.After a journey of nearly four hours, they should enter Earth orbit at an altitude of 23,522 kilometres (14,615 miles).Ultimately, the multi-billion-euro constellation is meant to comprise 24 operational satellites, providing navigation as well as search-and-rescue services.Another launch, this time of four orbiters on a single rocket, is expected to boost the constellation to 18 by year-end, allowing for Galileo to start providing usable signals."Thereafter, the system's precision will improve with every new satellite placed in orbit," said Jean-Yves Le Gall, head of France's CNES space agency.More modern than GPS, Galileo's high-tech instruments should allow it to provide a more precise signal."With GPS, we can see where a train is on a map of France, with Galileo we will know on which track it is," said Le Gall.But the project has been plagued by delays, technical glitches and budgetary difficulties.The launch of the seventh and eighth orbiters in March last year was about three months late to allow engineers time to probe an August 2014 mishap which sent satellites five and six into a lopsided orbit.The incident was blamed on frozen fuel pipes on the Soyuz rocket's fourth stage, called Fregat -- a problem the European Space Agency says has since been fixed.The launch of satellites five and six -- meant to have been the first fully operational Galileo orbiters -- had itself been delayed by more than a year due to "technical difficulties".The first four orbiters were hoisted in 2011 and 2012.Tuesday's launch, the seventh for Galileo, was a late addition to the schedule, in a bid to speed up deployment of the project funded by the European Commission, the European Union's executive body.It had budgeted some seven billion euros ($7.8 billion) for Galileo until 2020.The remaining satellites will be launched using a combination of Russian Soyuz rockets, which can take two into space at a time, and Europe's own Ariane 5 ES launcher, specially adapted to handle four.
India successfully tests small space shuttle-[The Canadian Press]-The Associated Press-May 24, 2016-YAHOONEWS
NEW DELHI - India has successfully tested its first small space shuttle as part of its efforts to make low-cost reusable spacecraft.The Indian Space Research Organization said the shuttle lifted off on a rocket from a launch pad in southern India on Monday and completed a successful 13-minute test flight.Space expert Pallava Bagla, who writes for science magazines, said the test paves the way for India to embark on low-cost space missions. He said the United States and some other countries have abandoned the use of winged reusable spacecraft, but India hopes to bring down the cost of access to space by 90 per cent by using reusable vehicles."In this flight, critical technologies such as autonomous navigation, guidance and control, reusable thermal protection system and re-entry mission management have been successfully validated," the space agency said in a statement.India hopes to become a player in the multibillion-dollar space launch market, and has successfully placed light satellites into orbit in recent years.It hopes eventually to send astronauts into space.In September 2014, it successfully guided a spacecraft into orbit around Mars. Only the United States, the former Soviet Union and the European Space Agency have been able to do that before.
Violent young Sun may have seeded life on Earth: study-[Agence France-Presse]-May 23, 2016-yahoonews
Paris (AFP) - Life on Earth may have sprung from bombardment by a youthful Sun lashing out with flares as potent as a thousand trillion exploding atomic bombs, a study suggested on Monday.Such violence may explain how Earth became hospitable to life about four billion years ago, when the planet, and its star, were much, much colder, a research team wrote in the journal Nature Geoscience.While the Sun was about a third fainter than it is today, it was likely much more tempestuous, they found.Repeated super-flares would have smashed nitrogen (N2) molecules in the atmosphere to yield a planet-warming greenhouse gas called nitrous oxide (N2O or "laughing gas"), as well as hydrogen cyanide, which produces amino acids -- the building blocks of proteins.While it is essential for all life, nitrogen in the form it would have existed in a young Earth's atmosphere is not chemically reactive, and needs to be transformed into more accessible forms.Very high temperatures can achieve this.The study was based on telescopic observations of other stars resembling our Sun in the first few hundred million years of life, as well as models of the chemistry of early Earth's atmosphere.Without an efficient greenhouse gas to trap the Sun's heat, "Earth would be a snowball rather than a wet and warm planet supporting life four billion years ago," study co-author Vladimir Airapetian explained.The new model "resolves the currently unresolved 'Faint Young Sun' paradox by efficient production of laughing gas in the lower Earth's atmosphere" at the time."Our model describes the 'cosmic' ingredient required to produce biological molecules of life," Airapetian told AFP by email.And it suggested that other planets subjected to similar violence by their star may have had similar outcomes."Geologic evidence suggests that Mars was also paradoxically warm and wet around the same time," planetary scientist Ramses Ramirez of the Carl Sagan Institute in New York noted in a comment on the study.It may have experienced "similar solar-atmospheric interactions" than Earth."The findings may have implications for the climates and potential biology of terrestrial exoplanets orbiting very young Sun-like stars, particularly stars with exceptionally high magnetic fluxes and very intense super stellar storms," said Ramirez.

Burning all fossil fuels would scorch Earth: study-[Agence France-Presse]-Marlowe Hood-May 23, 2016-YAHOONEWS
Bonn (AFP) - Using up all known fossil fuel reserves would render Earth even more unliveable than scientists had previously projected, researchers said on Monday.Average temperatures would climb by up to 9.5 degrees Celsius (17 degrees Fahrenheit) -- five times the cap on global warming set at climate talks in Paris in December, they reported.In the Arctic region -- already heating at more than double the global average -- the thermometer would rise an unimaginable 15 C to 20 C.Burning all known reserves of oil, gas and coal would inject about five trillion tonnes of heat-trapping carbon into the atmosphere, mainly in the form of carbon dioxide, a team wrote in the journal Nature Climate Change.This number -- about ten times the 540 billion tonnes of carbon emitted since the start of industrialisation -- would be reached near the end of the 22nd century if fossil fuel trends go unchanged, it added.Most of the UN climate science panel's projections for greenhouse gas emissions do not forecast beyond two trillion tonnes of carbon, more than enough to unleash a crippling maelstrom of rising seas, drought, heat waves and floods.Indeed, to have a better-than-even chance of holding global warming at 2 C (3.6 F), the total carbon budget -- including what has already been released -- is about one trillion tonnes, the UN has said.But extreme modelling scenarios cannot and should not be ignored, said the lead author of the study."It is relevant to know what would happen if we do not take actions to mitigate climate change," Kasia Tokarska, a doctoral student at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada, told AFP.- High stakes -There was still no guarantee, she pointed out, that the 195 nations which forged the Paris Agreement will deliver on their collective pledge to hold global warming to under 2 C (3.6 F) by cutting back on fossil fuels.Negotiators reconvened in Bonn this week to start turning the landmark political deal into an operational plan, but have found themselves bogged down in procedural discussions."Policymakers need to have a clear view of what is at stake... if no meaningful climate policies are put in place," said Thomas Frolicher, an expert on environmental physics at the science and technology university ETH Zurich, in a comment on the study.Previous research had projected that Earth's temperature rise would slow down once the level of two trillion tonnes is reached -- beyond that threshold, the impact of additional carbon diminishes.Using up-to-date climate models, however, Tokarska and colleagues showed that much of this work had over-estimated the oceans' capacity to absorb the CO2 humans pumped into the air, along with the additional heat it generates."The ocean takes up heat more slowly under those conditions," offsetting the slowdown in temperature rise, she explained by email.Older models had projected that depleting fossil fuel reserves entirely would heat the planet by 4.3 C to 8.4 C. The new study revises this to between 6.4 C and 9.5 C.And there's another wild card.Even if humanity manages to drastically curb its use of oil, gas and coal, Nature could add massive amounts of greenhouse gases all by itself, scientists warn.Hundreds of billions of tonnes of carbon, mostly in the form of methane, are locked in the increasingly misnamed permafrost of the sub-Arctic region.Beyond a certain threshold -- and no one knows what that is -- global warming could irretrievably unlock these methane reserves.

Largest U.S. Water Reservoir Shrinks to Record Low Amid Major Drought-[Time]-Justin Worland-May 23, 2016-YAHOONEWS
The water in the largest reservoir in the U.S. has shrunk to the lowest level on record, following years of drought in California and surrounding states.Water levels at Lake Mead fell to 1,074 feet last week, down from an average of 1,084 feet in February, according to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. The lake is currently at 37% of capacity, according to Bureau spokesperson Rose Davis. The region has suffered from a drought that has lasted more than a decade and the snowpacks that feed the lake—created during the Depression era—remain low. Recent images of the lake show just how far water levels have dropped with “bathtub ring” markings indicating the higher height of the reservoir.The manmade lake—located in Nevada and formed by the Hoover Dam—provides crucial water to parts of Arizona, Nevada and California, including the Los Angeles region. The federal government could implement emergency measures if the water level remains at 1,075 feet or below at the end of the year. Those measures would require reductions in water delivery to Nevada and Arizona, Davis says. California and Mexico would be exempt.But figures from the Bureau of Reclamation suggest that such measures may be unlikely with only a 10% chance of such a shortage in 2017. The agency expects the lake’s levels to drop to 1,071 feet over the summer during peak demand before rising to 1,078 at the end of the year.The record low water levels follow a year that brought some relief to drought-stricken California with rain and snow from El Niño. But, even as the state lifted some water restrictions last week, experts say that the U.S. southwest still faces extreme drought conditions.
Sanders: Democratic convention could be 'messy'-[The Canadian Press]-Ken Thomas, The Associated Press-May 24, 2016-YAHOONEWS
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia and his push to make the party more inclusive could get "messy" but asserts in an interview with The Associated Press: "Democracy is not always nice and quiet and gentle."The Vermont senator, campaigning Monday ahead of California's primary against Hillary Clinton, said his supporters hope the party will adopt a platform at the summer convention that reflects the needs of working families, the poor and young people, not Wall Street and corporate America.Sanders said he will "condemn any and all forms of violence" but his campaign was welcoming political newcomers and first-time attendees of party conventions. He said the Democratic Party faces a choice of becoming more inclusive or maintaining the status quo."I think if they make the right choice and open the doors to working-class people and young people and create the kind of dynamism that the Democratic Party needs, it's going to be messy," Sanders said."Democracy is not always nice and quiet and gentle but that is where the Democratic Party should go."Asked if the convention could be problematical, Sanders said: "So what? Democracy is messy. Everyday my life is messy. But if you want everything to be quiet and orderly and allow, you know, just things to proceed without vigorous debate, that is not what democracy is about."Sanders is vying for support ahead of California's June 7 primary, a day that also includes contests in Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota and South Dakota. Clinton has 271 more pledged delegates than Sanders and is just 90 delegates shy of clinching the nomination when the total includes superdelegates, the party officials and elected leaders who can support the candidate of their choice.Some Democrats have grown weary about the length of the primaries, worried that it could give Republican businessman Donald Trump a head start on the general election and make it more difficult for Democrats to unite behind a nominee. The issue gained attention when a recent Nevada Democratic convention turned raucous.Sanders said he was "bothered" by the portrayal of the Las Vegas convention, saying it did not turn violent as some media reports indicated. "There was rowdyism. There was booing, I think inappropriately by the way," he said.The senator spoke after the Democratic National Committee announced a 15-member platform drafting committee, which will write the first draft of the party platform. The panel includes allies of both candidates.Sanders said the platform process would be an "excellent time to educate the American people," saying it would allow the party to have a vigorous debate over ways to address wealth inequality, the role of Wall Street in the economy, climate change and universal health care."A serious debate about serious issues is good for democracy, is good for the Democratic Party. It will increase voter turnout and that always works in our effort to defeat Republicans," he said.He declined to entertain the possibility of being considered as Clinton's running mate, saying he was focused on winning the nomination. "If I don't, we will see what happens later on." But he reiterated that he would do "everything that I can" to ensure that Trump is not elected president.Sanders said he had a "shot" at winning the California primary against Clinton and said, given his delegate deficit, it was "imperative" that he perform well. He estimated his rallies around the state would allow him to speak directly to 200,000 voters before the primary."What happens if I win a major victory in California? Will people say, 'Oh, we're really enthusiastic about Hillary Clinton despite the fact that Bernie Sanders has now won whatever it may be, 25 states, half the states?'" he said.If that happens, he added, superdelegates "may rethink that. That is why you want the process to play out."Clinton's campaign said Monday she would not participate in a proposed California debate, choosing instead to campaign in the state. Sanders said at an evening rally in Santa Monica he was "disturbed but not surprised" that Clinton had "backed out" of the debate, which was part of an agreement the campaigns reached with the DNC earlier this year.Sanders also looked ahead to the future of his political movement, saying his goal was "the transformation of the Democratic Party. To be a party which is a grassroots party where the main energy comes from working families, from trade unionists, from environmentalists, from people today who want real political and social and economic and environmental changes in our society."__Follow Ken Thomas on Twitter: https://twitter.com/KThomasDC
Cosby arrives in court in Pennsylvania sex-assault case-[Associated Press]-Maryclaire Dale and Michael r. Sisak, Associated Press-May 24, 2016-YAHOONEWS
NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) -- Bill Cosby arrived in court Tuesday for a key hearing on whether prosecutors have enough evidence to put the 78-year-old comedian on trial on charges he drugged and sexually assaulted a woman over a decade ago.Cosby walked into the Montgomery County courthouse on the arm of an aide, waving to people waiting outside. He looked healthier than he did when he was charged in December, and was not carrying a cane this time.It was not immediately known whether his accuser, Andrea Constand, would testify at the preliminary hearing or whether authorities would instead read her police statement into the record.Cosby is accused of molesting the former Temple University athletic department employee at his suburban Philadelphia mansion in 2004. The TV star known as America's Dad could get 10 years in prison if convicted of indecent sexual assault.Prosecutors said he gave Constand three unidentified blue pills, rendering her unable to cry out or resist.Cosby said it was consensual sexual activity.Prosecutors reopened the case last year after dozens of women leveled similar allegations and after Cosby's sealed deposition in Constand's lawsuit was made public.He settled her lawsuit for an undisclosed sum in 2006 after testifying about his extramarital affairs, his use of quaaludes to seduce women and his efforts to hide payments to former lovers from his wife.The disclosures and the barrage of allegations have all but destroyed Cosby's nice-guy image from TV's "Cosby Show."Cosby's lawyers are trying to get the case thrown out, arguing that a previous prosecutor a decade ago made a binding promise that the comic would never be charged. On Monday, Pennsylvania's Supreme Court rejected a request to delay the preliminary hearing while he pursues a dismissal.Cosby has not entered a plea since his Dec. 30 arrest. He is free on $1 million bail.He is also fighting defamation lawsuits across the country for allegedly branding his accusers liars and is trying to get his homeowner insurance to pay his legal bills.Constand is now a massage therapist in Toronto.
Cosby due in court in Pennsylvania sex-assault case-[The Canadian Press]-The Associated Press-May 24, 2016-YAHOONEWS
PHILADELPHIA - Bill Cosby is due in Pennsylvania court Tuesday morning for a key hearing in his criminal sex-assault case.The preliminary hearing will determine whether prosecutors have enough evidence to send the 78-year-old entertainer to trial.Cosby is accused of drugging and molesting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia mansion in 2004. Prosecutors said Constand was not only impaired, but unconscious after Cosby gave her three unidentified blue pills. Cosby said they engaged in consensual sexual activities, and that he was a friend and mentor to her.Prosecutors reopened the criminal case last year after dozens of women raised similar claims, and Cosby's deposition in Constand's lawsuit surfaced.Constand had gone to him for career advice. Cosby said he gave her the pills to address her stress.He settled her lawsuit for an undisclosed sum in 2006, after giving four days of testimony about his extramarital affairs, his pursuit of quaaludes to seduce women and his efforts to hide payments to former lovers from his wife.The confidential settlement bound both sides to secrecy, but a federal judge last year unsealed portions of Cosby's deposition on a petition from The Associated Press. The full deposition was later released by a court reporting service.Montgomery County prosecutors then reopened Constand's decade-old complaint last summer, after realizing the 12-year window for felony sexual assault had not yet run out.Cosby has not entered a plea since his Dec. 30 arrest. He would do so at a formal arraignment if the case is held for trial. He is being held on $1 million bail.Cosby also is fighting defamation lawsuits across the country for allegedly smearing accusers and is trying to get his homeowners' insurance to pay his legal bills.Constand is now a massage therapist in Toronto. It's not known if she will testify Tuesday or if police will instead read her statement about the encounter that night.Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of aggravated indecent assault.

(Reuters) - At least seven people were taken to a hospital for evaluation after a substance thought to be cleaning chemicals made people ill and forced the evacuation of dozens at a Planned Parenthood building in Sarasota, Florida, on Monday, police said.Nearly 40 people were inside the building and those taken to a hospital had symptoms that included shortness of breath. Other people were treated at the scene, officials said, and the injuries were not considered life-threatening.Hazardous materials teams found cleaning chemicals and powdered baby formula, Sarasota County officials said on Twitter. The incident was reported at about 10:30 a.m. local time and the facility was expected to reopen in the afternoon, they said."No criminal investigation at Planned Parenthood at this time," the officials said on their Twitter feed.A powder substance, later determined to be baby formula, was found in a stairwell inside the building, police said.A local school was temporarily put on lockdown, officials said.
