DEAD ANIMALS

HOSEA 4:1-3
1 Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land,(EARTH) because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
2  By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
3  Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.

ZEPHANIAH 1:2-3
2  I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the LORD.
3  I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD.

Dead fish blight Rio Olympic bay, again-AFP-Jan 13, 2016, 7:18 PM-YAHOONEWS

Rio de Janeiro (AFP) - Thousands of dead fish were found floating in Rio de Janeiro's picturesque but polluted bay Wednesday, not far from where the Olympic sailing competitions will be held in August.Bobbing in the waves alongside floating garbage, the fish, mostly sardines, washed ashore near the international airport, about 30 kilometers (20 miles) from where Brazil will hold the 2016 Olympic sailing courses.Masses of dead fish have previously been found floating in the bay in October 2014 and February 2015, when more than 12 tons were removed.Authorities have blamed the tropical heat, but some residents are doubtful."It's because of the contamination of the water, it isn't a natural phenomenon. The water is very, very polluted," said Roger Texeira, a 45-year-old travel agent.Environmental authorities said they were investigating whether the fish may have been dumped by commercial fishermen who were trying to catch more valuable species. The Rio state government had vowed a major clean-up of Guanabara bay for the Olympics, but now admits it will not meet its goal.But Olympic organizers say the sailing venue will be clean and that competitors will not face any health risks.

Report: Greece mulling plan to return migrants by boat-By EUOBSERVER-JAN 13,16

Today, 17:03-Greece intends to ask EU border agency Frontex for help establishing a sea route to return illegal migrants to Turkey by boat, a Greek official was quoted as saying by Associated Press. According to the plan, rejected asylum seekers would be returned from Lesbos and other Greek islands.

Denmark extends border controls for 20 days-By EUOBSERVER-JAN 13,16

Today, 13:24-Denmark informed the EU commission Wednesday that checks at its borders are extended for 20 days until 3 February. They were introduced on 4 January after Sweden did so until 8 February. Denmark says it'd face a "serious risk to public policy and internal security" if they were lifted earlier.

Finland expects more refugees to enter via Russia-By EUOBSERVER-JAN 13,16

Today, 09:12-The number of asylum seekers entering northern Finland from Russia could increase tenfold in 2016, compared to 2015, and reach 7,500 or more, Finnish public broadcaster Yle reports. Since November 2015, almost 900 people from 30 different countries have crossed into Finnish Lapland from Russia to apply for asylum.

EU failing to deliver on migration plans By Nikolaj Nielsen-EUOBSERVER

BRUSSELS, 13. Jan, 18:30-Member states and EU institutions lag far behind on promises to better manage refugee flows, amid a growing public backlash.By contrast to the slow pace of joint measures, EU countries have taken snap unilateral measures, including border lockdowns in the heart of the Schengen free-travel zone, and tighter asylum laws in places such as Denmark, Germany, and Sweden.With migrants increasingly stranded in Greece, the main point of entry to the EU, the European Commission has repeatedly voiced frustration.Results need to be delivered in the coming "weeks and months”, commission vice-president Frans Timmermans told reporters in Brussels on Wednesday (13 January).-No spots-One leading concern is a lack of progress on “hotspots” in Greece and Italy, where people are meant to be first screened, identified, and registered.The registration underpins a plan to redistribute 160,000 refugees, mostly from Syria, in the EU over two years.Out of the six hotspots in Italy, just one each in Lampedusa and Trapani are deemed operational. Lampedusa can house 650 migrants, Trapani 400.Out of five hotspots in Greece, just one, in Lesbos, works.The lag means just 273 people out of the quota of 160,000 have been moved so far.But in peak times, such as last October, up to 135,000 people can arrive in Lesbos from Turkey in one month.Eight hundred thousand people came to Greece last year in total.Unable to cope, it requested 1,600 EU border guards and 100 fingerprinting machines. So far, it has received 170 guards and 48 machines, as well as €1.36 million in extra funding.-Unhappy Slovaks-The Dutch EU presidency is shepherding progress. But the next EU chair, Slovakia, which takes over in July, wants to tear down the 160,000-person relocation scheme.It has lodged a case against the plan at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.Slovakia wants, instead, to fast-track a new European border and coast guard and has called for a special EU summit to get it up and running.But Slovak prime minister Robert Fico is likely to be disappointed.The Dutch presidency has low ambitions for the border guard project. It is seeking only a non-binding Council position on the issue in the next six months.The project envisages the EU posting guards to external borders even if host states don’t want them.Earlier this week, Dutch migration minister Klaas Dijkhoff told MEPs the EU needed to deal with migration in “a way where we have some kind of grip of control”.-Dublin ‘doomed’-EU asylum policy rests on the so-called Dublin regulation.It says point-of-entry member states, such as Greece and Italy, must process asylum claims on behalf of the EU. It also allows EU states to return people to the entry state, with the exception of Greece, due to poor conditions.Dijkhoff said the Dublin law is "doomed to fail”.It is already wobbling. Germany suspended it last October, after announcing an open-door policy for Syrians, but reintroduced it in November after a huge increase in applications.-The unwanted-Member states also agreed in October to step up the return of people not entitled to international protection.Between September and December, only 683 people were sent to their home countries from Italy and Greece. Most were from Albania, Kosovo, Nigeria, and Pakistan.Only 40 percent or so of those told to leave return home, with a lack of travel documents and readmission agreements complicating matters.EU states at an Africa summit in Valletta, the Maltese capital, in November pushed African states to take in their nationals, with plans to issue a special EU travel document for paperless migrants.But the EU proposal caused a backlash among African governments, and EU states later watered down the idea.

Germany to relax migrant deportation rules By Nikolaj Nielsen-JAN 13,16-EUOBSERVER

BRUSSELS, Today, 09:29-Germany is amending laws to ease the deportation of foreigners with criminal offences amid an on-going backlash over mass sexual assaults on women during New Year's Eve festivities.The move is part of a broader effort to calm tensions following widespread allegations that mainly young men from Middle East and North African nations had organised the New Year's Eve crime spree in Cologne and elsewhere.On Tuesday (12 January), German interior minister Thomas de Maiziere and justice minister Heiko Maas proposed a draft law to relax deportations of asylum seekers and others convicted of crimes.“It's a hard but correct response by the state to those who are seeking protection here, but think they can commit crimes," said De Maiziere.He said the law significantly lowers the "hurdle for a possible deportation of foreigners who committed criminal offences in Germany".The draft law lowers the deportation threshold of criminal offences from the current three year jail sentence to one.Those convicted of a crime that carries a one year sentence can be deported.Offences ranging anywhere from convictions without parole to youth sentences are included in the draft law.The proposal is likely to sail through the German parliament after receiving backing from the social democrats in chancellor Angela Merkel's grand coalition.Some 19 suspects in the New Year's Eve sex assaults have been identified.But outstanding issues on how to deport people to countries who refuse them entry remain. Deporting convicts to countries where they face war, torture or death also poses problems.Last year, up until the end of November, Germany expelled some 18,363 people. Most came from former Yugoslav states like Albania, Kosovo and Serbia.But the secretary-general of Germany's centre-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party, Peter Tauber, wants those figures increased to around 1,000 daily deportations.Germany is now sending an ever increasing number of migrants back to Austria with most coming from places like Afghanistan, Algeria, and Morocco.In December, it dispatched around 60 per day, which has since increased to 200.Meanwhile, the New Year's Eve assaults have led to mounting criticism against Germany's open-door policy for refugees and asylum seekers and has fed into brewing far-right hostility against foreigners.Around 20 Pakistani nationals were attacked by marauding vigilante groups earlier this week near the Cologne railway station.And last week, the anti-immigration Pegida movement marched through the centre of Cologne with some carrying banners reading "rapefugees not welcome".Germany welcomed over a million asylum seekers last year with many fleeing war and persecution in Syria. Around a half million have applied so far for asylum.Merkel, for her part, has warned that the chaotic arrival of migrants has made the EU more vulnerable.

Special U.S. targeting force 'now in place' in Iraq: U.S.-[Reuters]-By Phil Stewart-January 13, 2016-YAHOONEWS

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A new U.S. force of special operations troops has arrived in Iraq and is preparing to work with Iraqi forces to go after Islamic State targets, U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Wednesday.Carter disclosed the deployment in a broad speech to U.S. soldiers that sought to underscore American efforts to accelerate the campaign against Islamic State, both in Iraq and Syria."The specialized expeditionary targeting force I announced in December is now in place and is preparing to work with the Iraqis to begin going after ISIL's fighters and commanders," Carter said at Fort Campbell in Kentucky.While the force was expected to number only about 200, its deployment marks the latest expansion of U.S. military pressure on Islamic State. It also exposes American forces to greater risk, something President Barack Obama has done only sparingly.The force is separate from another deployment last year of up to 50 U.S. special operations troops in Syria to coordinate on the ground with U.S.-backed rebels fighting in a civil war raging since 2011.Carter said that smaller group of forces had already established contact with rebels, as well as new targets for airstrikes and "strikes of all kinds.""These operators have helped focus the efforts of the local, capable forces against key ISIL vulnerabilities, including their lines of communication," Carter said.Republicans have sought to portray Obama's strategy to defeat Islamic State as flawed and insufficient, as the militants plot or inspire attacks far beyond their self-declared caliphate in Iraq and Syria.Obama, in his State of the Union speech on Tuesday, warned against overstating the fight against Islamic State but said his administration is focused on destroying the extremist group.Carter's upbeat assessment emphasized advances by Iraqi forces -- including retaking control of the city of Ramadi -- and by U.S.-backed rebels in Syria. He focused on efforts to "collapse" the Islamic State's power centers of al Raqqah, in Syria and Mosul, in Iraq."President Obama is committed to doing what it takes – as opportunities arise, as we see what works, and as the enemy adapts – until ISIL is delivered a lasting defeat," he said.Carter was addressing soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division, 1,800 of whom will deploy to Iraq in the coming months, largely to train Iraqi forces and Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga fighters.Beyond Syria and Iraq, Carter acknowledged that Islamic State was "metastasizing" in North Africa, Afghanistan and Yemen. That, he said, required a "nimble response" and pointed to a Nov. 13 strike that killed Islamic State's leader in Libya.He also pointed to December strikes that killed militants with links to the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris that killed 130 people.Carter said he would meet next week in Paris with defense ministers from six nations -- France, Britain, Australia, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands. He called for "all of the capabilities they can bring to the field.""As I will emphasize in Paris next week, we must all do more," he said.(Reporting by Phil Stewart; Editing by Alan Crosby)

Mediterranean bees in Brussels 'due to climate change'-By EUOBSERVER

13. Jan, 18:25-The region of Brussels announced Tuesday that last summer a species of bee that normally lives around the Mediterranean Sea was spotted in the EU capital. A Belgian study group of bees and wasps said climate change is probably behind the northbound migration of the species, called Hylaeus punctatus.

Pentagon lays out plan to take back Mosul, Raqqa from IS-[Associated Press]-LOLITA C. BALDOR-January 13, 2016-YAHOONEWS

FORT CAMPBELL, Kentucky (AP) — Defense Secretary Ash Carter laid out broad plans Wednesday to defeat Islamic State militants and retake the group's key power centers in Iraq and Syria. And he announced that a special commando force has now arrived in Iraq.Speaking to troops from the 101st Airborne Division who will soon deploy to Iraq, Carter also said he would meet in Paris next week with his defense counterparts, mainly from Europe, and will challenge them to bring more capabilities to the fight.He said he will be meeting with defense leaders from France, Australia, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, and "will not hesitate to engage and challenge" them to get them to do more."Each of these nations has a significant stake in completing the destruction of this evil organization, and we must include all of the capabilities they can bring to the field," he said.Some contributions the U.S. has requested already are special operations forces, fighter jet and reconnaissance aircraft, weapons and munitions, training and other combat support.Carter's broader message signaled the completion of a military plan to help Iraqi and Kurdish Peshmerga forces retake Mosul in northern Iraq and to assist the Syrian moderate forces oust Islamic State militants from their headquarters in Raqqa.He described operations that would send Iraqi forces from the south and Peshmerga forces from the north to encircle and cut off Mosul. But he warned that taking it back will not be quick or easy, and he offered no timelines.Carter announced in December that the U.S. would deploy about 200 special operations forces to Iraq to better capitalize on intelligence and put more pressure on the enemy."The specialized expeditionary targeting force I announced in December is now in place and is preparing to work with the Iraqis to begin going after ISIL's fighters and commanders, killing or capturing them wherever we find them, along with other key targets," he said, using an acronym for Islamic State. Carter's speech offered an upbeat assessment of the anti-IS campaign, saying that coalition-backed forces, supported by the airstrikes, are taking back territory and going after the groups finances. This week airstrikes hit an Islamic State cash center in Mosul.Military leaders have said that the militants have lost 40 percent of the territory they once held in Iraq, and 20 percent of their territory in Syria. The effort has been aided by strong support from Kurdish troops in northern Iraq, as the U.S. worked to build up Iraqi Army forces.The Iraqi forces struggled for months to retake Ramadi, but backed by airstrikes and other logistical support they were finally able to drive IS from the city last month.His remarks came a day after President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech, expanding on the message that the U.S. must build and work with local forces in Iraq and Syria to have lasting success. He said the U.S. must not "Americanize" the conflicts because that would allow militants to accuse the West of occupying the country.The ongoing U.S. effort, however, has come under fire from members of Congress and critics who say it's a failed strategy that isn't aggressive enough and should involve a more robust military presence to both defeat IS, and protect fleeing refugees, particularly along the Turkey and Syria border.

Abortion-rights group criticizes Pelosi over comments-[Associated Press]-ALAN FRAM-January 13, 2016-YAHOONEWS

WASHINGTON (AP) — A major abortion-rights group on Wednesday criticized House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi over what it called "disappointing and ill-advised" remarks, the second public rift in a year with a lawmaker such organizations have long considered one of their staunchest congressional allies.In an interview published Wednesday in which the California Democrat defended a woman's right to abortion, Pelosi said, "I don't believe in abortion on demand." The interview appeared in Roll Call, which covers Congress.NARAL Pro-Choice America said in a written statement that with abortion rights under attack by lawmakers, advocates need their supporters "to speak with a clear and strong voice" and should not use "twisted GOP talking points.""We don't know women who demand abortion," said the statement by Sasha Bruce, a NARAL senior vice president. Bruce added, "We do know women who make thoughtful decisions about how and if they want to start a family, and who need access to all reproductive-health care services." The unusual public reproach came with Republicans trying to halt federal funds for Planned Parenthood, which provides women's health care and abortions and sometimes furnishes fetal tissue to researchers. President Barack Obama vetoed legislation last week blocking that money and weakening his health care overhaul. Abortion-rights groups are bracing for a renewed effort after November's elections, which might succeed should the GOP win the White House and retain control of Congress."Time and time again, Leader Pelosi has stood up for women and our reproductive rights," NARAL said. "But at a moment when so much is at stake, her comments are particularly disappointing and ill-advised."Pelosi said in the published interview that she comes from "a very Catholic family, largely pro-life." She noted she had five children and "I'm with the program in terms of the Catholic Church."She added, "If there's one issue that really is almost inflaming to women, is when politicians say we will influence the size and timing of your family, we will decide what is right for you."Asked Wednesday about NARAL's criticism of her remarks about abortion on demand, Pelosi said, "I never supported that." She said lawmakers and others should try to "make sure that women have the right to make their own decisions in terms of the size and timing of their families. That's something that I have been passionate about."Last March, abortion-rights groups criticized Pelosi over a provision curbing abortions at community health centers, which largely serve lower-income women, that she agreed to include in a bipartisan compromise bill that also revamped how Medicare reimburses doctors.Pelosi argued that those restrictions were temporary and merely extended long-standing prohibitions on using federal money for abortions, with few exceptions. Planned Parenthood and NARAL strongly condemned that language.In a show of support, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., another abortion-rights supporter, issued a statement Wednesday saying, "There is no one who has been a stronger champion of a woman's right to choose" than Pelosi.___Link to Roll Call article: http://blogs.rollcall.com/news/pelosi-im-not-for-abortion-on-demand/?dcz

Britain urged to give transgender people full legal equality-[Reuters]-By Magdalena Mis-January 13, 2016-YAHOONEWS

LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Britain has "a long way to go" to ensure full equality for transgender people and needs to update the law to give them the same opportunities as everyone else, a parliamentary committee said on Thursday.The hostility experienced by transgender people on a daily basis undermines their careers, living standards and access to services, the Women and Equalities Committee, which monitors the performance of the government's Equalities Office, said in a report."Britain leads the way when it comes to many issues on LGB (rights) but not when it comes to trans issues," Maria Miller, the committee chairwoman, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation."What we've seen in evidence given to the committee is that the law and service provision are lagging behind and causing considerable problems to trans people in their everyday lives."Britain should modernize its "outdated" equality laws regulating gender change and allow gender self-declaration, the committee said after an inquiry into transgender equality.It said gender self-declaration is already in place in countries including the Netherlands, Argentina, Denmark and Ireland.It made more than 30 recommendations, including moving towards 'non gender' official records, strengthening hate crime legislation and reviewing treatment of transgender people in prisons."This is something that needs urgent action because trans people deserve to be able to live full and successful lives in the way that any other person does in this country," Miller said.The committee said the National Health Service (NHS) was failing transgender people because of a lack of knowledge and understanding of transgender issues and urged the NHS to review its services.Transgender expert Jay Stewart, who gave evidence to the inquiry, said the report was "incredibly positive"."I think the report is an amazing job covering many, many aspects of activities that need to take place to ensure that trans people feel included and equal in society," Stewart, director of the non-profit Gendered Intelligence, said by phone.According to a poll published on Thursday by women's rights charity the Fawcett Society, more than 40 percent of British people believe that gender is not binary but fluid and can be expressed as a range of identities."The research done by the Fawcett Society ... shows the public opinion is well ahead of where our legislation and our public service provision is, and I think we need to move quickly on this," Miller said.The committee urged the government to agree a new strategy for transgender equality within six months.(Reporting by Magdalena Mis, editing by Tim Pearce.

Guzman, actress talked of 'dream' meeting in texts-[AFP]-Laurent Thomet-January 13, 2016- YAHOONEWS

Mexico City (AFP) - Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman fawned over the "beautiful" actress Kate del Castillo, while she confessed her "dream" of meeting him in leaked text messages filled with warm exchanges.The chats, published by the newspaper Milenio on Wednesday, took place before and after Guzman, Del Castillo and US actor Sean Penn sat down for a now notorious meeting in the Mexican jungle in October.The messages provide a new window into the mysterious relationship between the then-fugitive and Del Castillo, who brokered the get-together between Guzman and Penn -- even though the fugitive appeared to know little about the actor.In the messages intercepted by Mexican authorities, the pair discuss meeting over tequila and champagne, with Guzman promising to "take care of you more than my own eyes" while the Mexican-American actress expresses her "eagerness to see you eye-to-eye.""I'll take care of you. You'll see when you come," Guzman, who went by the name "Papa" in the messages, wrote on September 26, just over two months after his escape from a maximum-security prison."You're so beautiful, my friend, in every aspect," the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel leader told Del Castillo, famous for her role as a drug boss in the TV show "The Queen of the South."Del Castillo, whose chat name was "Beauty," answered: "I must confess that I feel protected for the first time. You'll know my story when we have time to speak, but for some reason I feel safe and I know you know who I am, not as an actress or public figure, but as a woman, as a person."The actress, who has her own tequila brand, added: "I'll bring my tequila to share it with you, because it is a dream that I wanted to fulfill."Guzman, who is married to a former beauty queen and has twin daughters with her and more children with other women, told Del Castillo his mother wanted to meet her.Two government officials told AFP that the text messages leaked to Milenio were authentic.Del Castillo took to Twitter late Wednesday to make her first public statement since the meeting with Guzman became public on Saturday."Not surprisingly, many have chosen to make up items they think will make good stories and that aren't truthful," she wrote. "I look forward to sharing my story with you."- Smitten drug lord -Penn, who wrote about the October 2 meeting with Guzman in a Rolling Stone article published on Saturday, said the kingpin wanted Del Castillo to help him make a biopic about himself.On October 10, after they met, the actress wrote: "I don't sleep much since I saw you. I'm very excited about our story. ... It's all I think about."Guzman, 58, replied: "I'm more excited about you than the story."He wrote her again on October 23 to wish her happy birthday when she turned 43."What a nice birthday gift! Thank you! We will hug very soon," she wrote.Officials said Tuesday that Guzman's "almost obsessive" desire to see Del Castillo again contributed to his recapture last Friday in Los Mochis, a seaside city in his northwestern home state of Sinaloa.Guzman left his mountain hideout because troops were circling him, but his hope of seeing her again also led him to the city, the officials said on condition of anonymity. DVDs of her TV show were found in his hideout.After six months on the lam, Guzman is back in the same prison he escaped from on July 11.- Who's Sean Penn? -The Mexican government said authorities were investigating the "actions" surrounding the October meeting, not the people directly.But legal experts doubt that the actors could face charges, unless they accepted money from illegal proceeds from Guzman to make a film.While Guzman agreed to meet with Penn, the world's most infamous criminal did not seem to know much about the Oscar-winning Hollywood actor.In messages between Guzman and his attorney, who facilitated the phone exchanges with Del Castillo, the lawyer told the drug lord about the 2003 film "21 Grams."The kingpin asked his attorney to repeat the actor's name twice and the title of Penn's most recent movie."I see Sean Penn on the internet here," wrote "Papa."
