first_imgBENGHAZI – Three Libyan tribesman have been killed in fighting that grew out of disputes between army units under conflicting orders over who controls key resources in the country’s east, officials said Monday.Another five people were wounded in the fighting between Toubou and Zuwayya tribesmen on Sunday night in Ajdabiya, 160 kilometres (100 miles) south of Benghazi.The clashes were sparked by fighting on Friday between one unit made up of Zuwayya, under the orders of the general staff, and a Toubou unit that takes its orders directly from the defence ministry, an official explained. At stake was control over oil wells and an agricultural water reservoir in Al-Sarir, 600 kilometres south of Benghazi, he added.Five soldiers were killed in the fighting on Friday, and clashes broke out between Zuwayya and Toubou in Ajdabiya the following day after the soldiers’ burial that spilled over into Sunday.The Zuwayya, who are Arab, and the Toubou, who are black, have a long history of conflict.Following the overthrow of long-time dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011, tribal unrest broke out in parts of Libya, particularly in the south and west, prompted by a settling of grudges or competition for control of smuggling across the country’s borders.Since Kadhafi’s ouster, Libya’s authorities have struggled to impose their authority and stem rising lawlessness.last_img read more

first_imgLa pollution de l’air en Ile-de-France dépasse encore régulièrement les seuilsSelon le bilan d’Airparif publié mercredi, les niveaux annuels autorisés de dioxyde d’azote (NO2) et de particules en suspension ont été encore une fois régulièrement dépassés en 2012 en Île-de-France et à Paris en particulier.Alors que les alertes se multiplient au sujet de la pollution de l’air en France, c’est un document édifiant qu’a dévoilé mercredi Airparif. Selon ce rapport annuel, les niveaux annuels autorisés de dioxyde d’azote (NO2) et de particules en suspension ont de nouveau été régulièrement dépassés en 2012 en Île-de-France. Paris et les axes routiers sont, bien entendu, les zones les plus touchées par cette pollution. Ainsi, Airparif juge que “la qualité de l’air reste insatisfaisante en Île-de-France”, notant “une certaine stabilité depuis plusieurs années”. Comme le rappelle le rapport, cette pollution de l’air a des origines multiples : trafic routier, industrie, agriculture et chauffage mais certaines sont plus marquées que d’autres. Sur 11 millions de Franciliens, 3 millions sont concernés par des taux moyens de dioxyde d’azote excessifs liés au trafic des véhicules diesel qui “émettent trois fois plus de dioxyde d’azote qu’un véhicule essence catalysé et quatre fois plus de particules fines”. “Nous attendons avec impatience les normes Euro 6 [applicables aux constructeurs automobiles européens] qui devraient durcir les émissions des moteurs à partir de 2014″, a ainsi déclaré Karine Léger, d’Airparif.Pour ce qui est des particules en suspension dans l’air, 2,4 millions de personnes sont exposées à des particules PM10 (inférieure à 10 micromètres) et à des particules fines (PM2,5) au-delà des seuils autorisés de 35 jours par an. Ces dépassements ont surtout été constatés près des gros axes routiers et plus particulièrement à Saint-Denis sur l’autoroute A1 (192 jours de dépassements), sur le périphérique à la porte d’Auteuil (135 jours) et sur la RN2 à Pantin (106).”Baisser de 30 à 40%” le trafic automobile des particuliers À lire aussiLa Méditerranée est officiellement la mer la plus polluée par le plastiqueSelon Airparif, “le dioxyde d’azote reste un des enjeux principaux en matière de pollution atmosphérique en Île-de-France”. En effet, comme le rappelle le Dr Patrice Halimi de l’Association santé environnement France (Asef), “les oxydes d’azote sont un irritant des voies respiratoires”, et comme les microparticules, “ils vont aussi dans les alvéoles du poumon, passent dans le sang et vont boucher des petits vaisseaux, ce qui peut provoquer infarctus, accidents vasculaires cérébraux, naissances prématurées”… Pour ce spécialiste, il faut ainsi “baisser de 30 à 40% le trafic des véhicules particuliers au profit des transports en commun”.Par ailleurs, quoiqu’Airparif s’intéresse à l’Île-de-France, ce n’est pas la seule région concernée par la pollution, une quinzaine d’agglomérations françaises dépassant également régulièrement les normes européennes annuelles.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening.

first_imgIt’s all about the soil: Typically, the soil you plan to grow your vegetable or herb garden in should be high in organic matter, which can be easily obtained using the appropriate fertilizer at various supermarkets, and outdoor and garden retailers.Starting your own compost bin can be a quick and easy way to keep nourishing your garden as well as recycle. Kitchen scraps such as egg shells, coffee grounds, maize cobs and tea leaves can go a long way in keeping your garden naturally healthy and at a low cost. You can buy the ready-made bin container, or build one yourself.Location, location, location: Your garden should be in a location facing direct sunlight every day and as far away from trees as possible to prevent your crops from competing for water with the trees.Trowels and other tools: some essential garden tools you’ll need to invest in include a small spade, shovel, hoe, rake and garden fork. You can add more tools according to your preference. Vegetables that grow best in spring include kale spinach, beetroot and artichoke, while chives, red onions and maize thrive best in summer. Knowing what seasons are most favourable for certain vegetables is crucial to their growth.Similarly, herbs also have a seasonal preference. Herbs are however a lot more versatile than vegetables, and can grow in a sunny spot in pots near the kitchen window. Basil, rosemary, thyme and oregano are some of the most popular herbs that don’t need much fussing over to plant and sow.If you’re planning on adding fruit to the mix, make sure that you have enough garden space, as fruit require more space than vegetables usually do. Vegetables that also need larger gardens include cucumber and squash, among others.Building healthy and organic soil is one step to growing a healthy garden of crops, but keeping your veggies pest free can be a challenge. Apple cider vinegar, vegetable oil and even crushing garlic into a liquid mix can come in handy and keep your garden organic and pest free from top soil to the roots.

Chip Roy (R-Texas) objected to the bill on Friday. According to reports, Roy cities the lack of money for the border and the $19 billion price tag for his objections. He also objetece to the measure without all members getting a chance to vote on it.Congress is in recess until June 3, and a vote on the bill appears unlikely.It was reported earlier this month that U.S. Representatives were pushing for the allocation of promised disaster relief aid Texas and other disaster-affected states.U.S. Reps. Randy Weber and Lizzie Fletcher, introduced the Bipartisan Disaster Recovery Funding Act last week, with support from 13 other co-sponsors from Texas, mostly from the Houston area, as well as supporters from other communities waiting on the funding, including Louisiana, South Carolina, Florida and Puerto Rico.The Act directs federal agencies to release the $16 billion in disaster funds Congress approved in early 2018 following Hurricane Harvey to different states and territories—including more than $4 billion to Texas—within 60 days.“After Harvey hit, I fought alongside the Texas delegation to secure additional funds for Harvey survivors,” U.S. Rep. Mike McCaul. “Unfortunately, the agencies tasked with distributing these funds did not respond with the same urgency.”The Five Star Conference will host its Disaster Preparedness Symposium on July 31 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Natural disasters impact investors, service providers, mortgage servicers, government agencies, legal professionals, lenders, property preservation companies, and—most importantly—homeowners.The 2019 Five Star Disaster Preparedness Symposium will include critical conversations on response, reaction and assistance, to ensure the industry is ready to lend the proper support the next time a natural disaster strikes. Please check back for updates on this story.last_img read more
