U.S. Begins 'Extreme Vetting' At Australian Refugee Detention Centers

In exchange, Australia has pledged to take Central American refugees from a center in Costa Rica, where the United States has expanded intake in recent years, under the deal struck with former President Barack Obama. The first security interviews finished last week at Papua New Guinea’s Manus Island detention centre, two refugees who went through the process told Reuters. The refugees told Reuters that interviews began with an oath to God to tell the truth and then proceeded for as long as six hours, with in-depth questions on associates, family, friends and any interactions with the Islamic State militant group. “They asked about why I fled my home, why I sought asylum in Australia,” said one refugee who declined to be named, fearing it could jeopardise his application for U.S. resettlement. The security interviews are the last stage of U.S. consideration of applicants. Manus Island is one of two Australian-operated detention centres, which hold nearly 1,300 people who were intercepted trying to reach Australia by boat. Human rights groups have condemned the intercept policy and the harsh conditions of the camps. Australia says offshore processing is needed as a deterrent after thousands of people drowned at sea before the policy was introduced in 2013. A decision on the fate of the first 70 people interviewed is expected to be reached within the next month, a different source who works with refugees said. A spokesman for Australia’s immigration minister refused to comment on the resettlement process. The U.S. State Department and White House did not immediately respond to questions. U.S. President Donald Trump’s plans for extreme vetting have extended to those travelling to the United States from Muslim countries. Australia’s relationship with the new administration in Washington got off to a rocky start when Trump lambasted Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over the resettlement arrangement, which Trump labelled a “dumb deal.” Details of an acrimonious phone call between the pair soon after Trump took office made headlines around the world. Australia is one of Washington’s staunchest allies and has sent troops to fight alongside the U.S. military in conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The relocation of asylum seekers to the United States is designed to help Papua New Guinea and Australia proceed with the planned closure of the Manus detention centre on Oct. 31. But the fate of approximately 200 men deemed non-refugees is uncertain. Those not offered resettlement in the United States will be offered the chance to settle in Papua New Guinea or return home. Australia has already offered detainees up to $25,000 to voluntarily return home; an offer very few have taken up.

Американские учёные доказали, что среди людей с неправильным прикусом (а именно – выступающей нижней челюстью) больше всего левшей. Тем временем более ранние исследования связали неправильный прикус с риском возникновения туберкулёза. Существует ли взаимосвязь между такими разными характеристиками?

"РусАл" начинает крупный проект в Гвинее

"РусАл" и Гвинея согласовали условия разработки крупнейшего в мире бокситового месторождения "Диан-Диан". Разработка месторождения разделена на четыре этапа. "РусАл" получил месторождение бокситов в Гвинее Первый этап рассчитан до конца 2015 г. и предполагает строительство рудника мощностью 3 млн тонн бокситов в год. Кроме того, к этому сроку "РусАл" разработает ТЭО проекта по увеличению добычи бокситов до 9 млн тонн в год, а также ТЭО строительства глиноземного завода мощностью 1,2 млн тонн глинозема в год, сообщает "РусАл". Второй этап освоения месторождения завершится до конца 2019 г., добыча бокситов достигнет к этому времени 6 млн тонн в год. Третий этап, который "РусАл" также намерен завершить к концу 2019 г., предполагает строительство завода мощностью 1,2 млн тонн глинозема в год с соответствующим увеличением добычи бокситов на руднике. Соглашение предполагает возможность осуществления четвертого этапа, но это по усмотрению "РусАла", в зависимости от экономической ситуации в мире и потребностей компании. Четвертый этап предполагает расширение мощности глиноземного завода до 2,4 млн тонн в год и увеличение добычи бокситов до 12 млн тонн в год. "Подписание данного документа является важным шагом в развитии и укреплении взаимоотношений "РусАла" и руководства Гвинеи, свидетельствующим о растущем уровне доверия и взаимопонимания сторон. Условия работы, о которых мы договорились, выработаны с учетом интересов обеих сторон и отражают наш взгляд на перспективы мирового рынка алюминия. Я уверен, что обоюдовыгодный характер нашего сотрудничества будет способствовать улучшению инвестиционного климата в Республике Гвинея и укреплению конкурентоспособности "РусАла" как лидера мировой алюминиевой отрасли и одного из крупнейших инвесторов в эту африканскую страну", - отметил первый заместитель генерального директора "РусАла" Владислав Соловьев.
