Refuge: Transforming a Broken Refugee System review – flawed and frustrating

Alexander Betts and Paul Collier’s analysis of today’s refugee crisis offers little in the way of solutionsWhen the Ottoman empire collapsed almost a century ago, more than 1.2 million Orthodox Christian refugees fled into Greece. – a massive influx for a country of 5.5 million people, dwarfing the number of recent incomers. Yet the crisis was managed, not repulsed by panicking politicians, and turned into something strikingly positive for the Greeks. Backed by international loans, they moved arriving families into under-developed areas, encouraged integration and ended up dramatically improving the nation’s agricultural output. What a contrast with the abject reaction to today’s refugee crisis, which finds Greece again on the frontline. With a few noble exceptions, the political response in the world’s wealthiest nations has been shamefully selfish and callous.Unfortunately Refuge, although it claims to offer “moral and practical” solutions, is a flawed and frustrating work. Much of the authors’ analysis is correct. The vast majority of refugees live in developing nations, yet a crisis caused by mass flight to Europe has exposed gross failures of existing systems to cope with large numbers suddenly on the move.

'It would change the power dynamic': police officers on carrying guns

We asked you to tell us if all officers should routinely be armed or not and your reasons whyThe Police Federation will ask officers in England and Wales whether they want to routinely carry a gun in the first national survey of its kind in more than ten years. Unlike their counterparts in Northern Ireland, most police in Great Britain are traditionally unarmed as routine arming is controversial and many do not support it. Last month the Guardian revealed that police chiefs discussed the possibility of arming all frontline officers to counter the threat of terrorism after four attacks happened in three months. We asked serving and former police officers to share their experiences and tell us whether they think all officers should carry a gun. Continue reading...

Match site launches for progressive lawyers and non-profits

President Donald Trump has inspired a new online dating service—between Democratic lawyers seeking pro-bono work and opposition non-profits in need of help. We the Action, launching Friday, will be an online portal to connect lawyers with legal work waiting to be done, from reviewing leases and contracts to filing Social Security claims to potentially heading to court in immigration cases. Non-profits will be able to post the services they need, and search through online profiles created by attorneys detailing expertise and availability. Several connections have been made already by the 501c3, funded by the California-based Emerson Collective, the organization founded and led by Laurene Powell Jobs.“After the election and as Trump was coming, there was this huge outpouring of lawyers who just wanted to know what they could do,” said Marc Elias, the D.C. Democratic elections lawyer who is serving as We the Action’s board chairman. “We ought to be able to match this great demand for legal services.” Democratic operative Addisu Demisse and Emerson Collective immigration expert Marshall Fitz make up the rest of the board. We the Action is in part a response to the explosion of new groups formed in the wake of Trump’s election, many of which are low on funding and resources. “Non-profits are on the frontline, and there are more and more of them every day. This is a way to connect lawyers that want to help with organizations that need help,” said Sarah Baker, who worked in the White House counsel’s office under President Barack Obama and will be We the Action’s executive director. The attorney profile asks which states they are member of the bar in for matters that require it, but the website will be able to connect lawyers and non-profits no matter the distance. And the hope is to provide an avenue for attorneys who want to get around firms’ sometimes ponderous and complicated pro bono policies. The rush of lawyers to the airports in the wake of Trump’s first travel ban drove home the point: hundreds arrived, few had any relevant immigration law expertise and no one was providing any direction. “There wasn’t any place for a progressive lawyer who simply wanted to make a difference,” Elias said.Eleven larger organizations are forming the backbone of support and outreach: Access Democracy, the American Immigration Lawyers Association, Equality New York, the International Refugee Assistance Program, the Latin American Coalition, Let America Vote, NARAL Pro Choice America, the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and Hawaiian Islands and Voto Latino."There is great need for legal support and so many skilled lawyers who want to participate in the pursuit of equality and justice,” said Gabriel Blau of Equality New York, “but until now, there hasn’t been a sufficiently focused and robust tool to make that match."

Should all police officers be armed? Share your experiences

We want to hear what you think about the National Police Chiefs’ Council paper considering the possibility of all frontline officers being given gunsIn the wake of recent terror attacks in the UK, the Police Federation will ask officers whether they want to routinely carry a gun in the first national survey of its kind in more than ten years. Last month the Guardian revealed that police chiefs discussed the possibility of arming all frontline officers to counter the threat of terrorism. Unlike their counterparts in Northern Ireland, most police in Great Britain are traditionally unarmed as routine arming is controversial and many do not support it. However, some police sources say the longstanding principle is under pressure after four terrorist attacks in three months. Continue reading...

Иностранные добровольцы в борьбе за освобождение Ракки

За каждый квартал, за каждый метр в сирийской Ракке идут ожесточённые бои. За освобождения города от боевиков ИГИЛ плечом к плечу с солдатами «Сил Демократической Сирии» и «Отрядов народной самообороны» сражаются и иностранные наёмники и добровольцы. Среди них – Мэйсер Гиффорд, который оставил профессию биржевого брокера у себя в Лондоне и отправился воевать за «мирное будущее Сирии». «Здесь есть светские демократические силы, и это – местные жители.

Police missing terrorist tip-offs because of cuts, says former Met chief

Paul Condon, who headed the Met from 1993 to 2000, said the reduction in the number of frontline officers had left the police close to breaking point. Continue reading...

Defense Bill Provides Biggest Troop Pay Raise In Eight Years

The 2018 National Defense Authorization Act is important for many reasons. It takes steps to rebuild our military for the 21st century. It increases funding for missile defense research and development. And it reforms our acquisition process to make it leaner and more cost-efficient. One more thing: This bill fully funds a well-deserved pay raise for our troops—the largest in eight years. It also extends special pay and bonuses. More from Federal News Radio: "The House Armed Services’ Personnel Subcommittee is recommending a 2.4 percent pay raise for those in the military, and it wants to add 17,000 troops to the Army." Indeed, our servicemembers and their families make enormous sacrifices to defend this country. These brave men and women risk their lives on the frontlines to ensure we can live freely and safely here at home. They don’t ask for much, but this is the least we can do to say thank you. As Speaker Ryan said this week, “With this defense bill, we are working to make sure that our Armed Forces have the tools and the resources that they need to defeat terror. This is the next step in keeping our promise to rebuild our military for the 21st century and the threats that it encapsulates. It includes support for military families, and honestly, a really well-deserved pay raise for our troops.” Republicans and Democrats recently joined together to pass this bill out of the Armed Services Committee by a vote of 60-1. We hope that, in the spirit of supporting our troops, that bipartisanship will continue on the House floor today. Click here to learn more about the bill, and visit speaker.gov for additional updates. BREAKING NEWS → The House just voted 344 to 81 to give our troops a well-deserved pay raise—their largest increase in 8 years. pic.twitter.com/4is7wMWyZM— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) July 14, 2017

euronews on the frontline - Европа борется с киберпреступностью

http://ru.euronews.com/ Представьте себе мир, где преступники действуют совершенно безнаказанно. Мир, в котором данные Вашей кредитки можно приобрести за 1 доллар, а заработать на таком бизнесе один триллион долларов в год, или 770 000 000 евро. Программа "На линии огня" провела собственное расследование, чтобы понять, как бороться с организованной преступностью в кибер пространстве, а главное - как победить. Эксперты в области кибербезопасности предупреждают, что в 2013 году кибератаки на финансовый сектор станут еще более изощренными и вредоносными и могут привести к миллионам долларов убытков. Наша зависимость от интернета растет, а вместе с этим резко увеличиваются возможности мошенников и преступников. О противостоянии растущей угрозе мы поговорили с Троэлсом Оертиномг, главой Европейского центра по борьбе с кибер-преступлениям и Риком Фергюсоном, директором Trend Micro, компании, разрабатывающей программное обеспечение для защиты информации.
