first_imgUNICEF has launched a global sports initiative to engage people in its work for children.Sports enthusiasts worldwide can get involved in the Olympic and Paralympic action for free by signing up to Team UNICEF Get Active for Children, a scheme that unlocks a R$5 corporate donation every time participants complete 5km by foot or wheelchair.Users can also accumulate points by exercising and accomplishing other activities including completing a quiz at the Team UNICEF platform. The participant with the highest number of points will win a trip to see UNICEF’s work first-hand in Brazil (international travel is not included).“We want everyone to get into the sporting spirit and Get Active for Children to help raise vital funds for UNICEF’s work for the world’s most vulnerable children,” said UNICEF Representative in Brazil Gary Stahl.Estimates suggest 30 children and adolescents are murdered every day in Brazil. More than one in three adolescent deaths in the country is a result of murder, compared to one in 20 deaths caused by homicide among the total population. For Brazil’s most vulnerable children, exposure to violence and exploitation is commonplace. Major sporting events can put these children at an increased risk of atrocities including sexual abuse and child labour.To help prevent and respond to violence against children during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, UNICEF has also launched a new version of Proteja Brasil, an app that enables witnesses and victims to report violence, abuse and exploitation to the authorities. Reports on the time, location and circumstances can be filed online and anonymously.“Violence, abuse, discrimination and exploitation are a harsh reality for far too many children,” said Stahl. “Proteja Brasil gives everyday people the chance to make it personal and take action to help tackle children’s rights’ violations and get them the help they so desperately need.”Team UNICEF Get Active for Children was created by UNICEF and Ogilvy and supported by Development Bank of Latin America (CAF) and Save the Dream.last_img read more

first_img(AFN Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day addresses reporters after a meeting with premiers, the prime minister and Indigenous leaders) Jorge Barrera APTN NewsQuebec Premier Phillippe Couillard said during closed-door talks between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, premiers and Indigenous leaders that the Constitution needs to be reopened to deal with issues of Indigenous rights and self-government, according to Assembly of First Nations Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day. Trudeau and the premiers met with Indigenous leaders representing First Nations, Inuit and Metis on Tuesday as part of a day-long first ministers meeting in Ottawa. Indigenous leaders were given about 90 minutes to raise their concerns at the table.Day said Couillard played the “Constitutional card” during the meeting.“We have the Quebec premier, he says, listen we are not going to do anything until the Constitution opens up,” said Day, during a press scrum with reporters. “The premier of Quebec, he pulled the Constitutional card and said, this is where it stands in Quebec.”Day said he felt Couillard was using First Nations to push Quebec’s own self-interest to reopen Constitutional talks.“This is unacceptable in this day and age,” said Day. “Obviously if we have one region saying we are not going to move on self-government or Indigenous rights in our region until the Constitution opens up, those First Nations are being held hostage.”Assembly of First Nation of Quebec and Labrador Grand Chief Ghislain Picard was also at the meeting and confirmed Day’s interpretation of the events.“Quebec seems to be taking the position we are simply not legitimate governments in our own communities and that is unacceptable to our people,” said Picard. “To me, we are caught in a situation where the prime minister has already said very clearly that there is no question about reopening the Constitution, so Couillard really seems to be alone in his corner unless other premiers are willing to create some kind of pressure to go in that direction.”Quebec has never signed onto the Constitution as a result of the ‘Night of Long Knives’ in 1982 when then justice minister Jean Chretien cut a deal that excluded former Quebec premier Rene Levesque.Former prime minister Brian Mulroney failed twice – Meech Lake and Charlottetown — to amend the Constitution and get Quebec to sign on.Couillard, facing reelection next year, raised the Constitutional question in June, releasing a 200-page document outlining his government’s position.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said he has no plan to wade into the issue.Still, continued jurisdictional uncertainty emerged in the subtext of the statements delivered by the First Nations and Inuit representatives following their meeting with the premiers and the prime ministerAssembly of First Nations National Chief Perry Bellegarde said the core issue of resource revenue sharing – which is seen as a key solution to unlocking the economic potential of First Nations — was still receiving an, at best, lukewarm reception from premiers who control natural resources.“It is mixed when you look across Canada,” said Bellegarde. “Some provinces are looking at it in segments, others are opposed to the idea.”Bellegarde said he urged provincial premiers to continually meet with the First Nations leadership in their respective jurisdictions to sort these issues out.“Rather than engage in legal challenges, there should be a dialogue,” said Bellegarde.Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami President Natan Obed said Inuit living within Nunavut, Northwest Territories, Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador have a “complicated relationship” with the respective public governments.“We still have fundamental differences when it comes to the inter-governmental table and the way Inuit interact at the federal level or at the level of the premiers and the prime minister. There are still historical barriers with Indigenous inclusion within multilateral conversations in this country,” said Obed, during a scrum with reporters.“We see public governments, whether its provinces and territories, sometimes don’t want to give up power, don’t want to imagine there is an Indigenous governance base that has Constitutional recognition that has application within the Canadian Confederacy.”There is a tension within the Constitution between federal and provincial powers and the recognition of Aboriginal rights and title as set out in Section 35. The Trudeau government has taken the position that Section 35 is a “full box of rights,” meaning Indigenous rights have been defined by the Constitution and successive Supreme Court decisions.The Trudeau government has taken the position that Section 35 is a “full box of rights,” meaning Indigenous rights have been defined by the Constitution and successive Supreme Court decisions.Others argue that Section 35 is still an empty box that can only be filled by Constitutional negotiations.Picard said Tuesday’s meetings with the premiers and prime minister again revealed the deficiency in how Ottawa, the provinces, and territories are choosing to deal with the Indigenous nations. Beyond statements from First Nations, Inuit and Metis representatives there was little discussion around the table aside from Couillard’s intervention, said Picard.“To me, it just confirms once again that many governments at the table, I wouldn’t be able to say how many or which ones, seem to be of the opinion that they have their own agenda and we have the side agenda,” said Picard.“We just won’t stand for it. We have to be at the table. There have been too many decisions taken that affects the lives of our people in a bilateral setting, meaning the federal government and the provinces.”The most current example is Ottawa’s plan to legalize marijuana.There remains deep uncertainty around whether First Nations will retain jurisdiction over the sale of marijuana on-reserve or whether they will have to strike individual deals with respective provinces.While it wasn’t discussed during the meeting involving Indigenous, it was a primary topic in subsequent talks between Trudeau and the premieres, Day and Picard said.“We are not there that is an example of the type of issue that needs to be addressed,” said Picard.British Columbia Premier John Horgan said the premiers and the prime minister did not even get to the issue of marijuana sales on-reserve and jurisdiction during discussions on the issue.“It’s yet another level of complication,” said Horgan.Horgan said Trudeau proposed marijuana revenue sharing between Ottawa and the provinces and territories.“It’s not something we contemplated before,” he said.@jorgebarreralast_img read more

Doha – Qatar on Tuesday reiterated its support to Morocco’s autonomy plan, deeming it a serious, realistic and credible initiative to reach a solution to the Sahara issue.Qatar also stressed in the minutes of the 6th Moroccan-Qatari Joint Committee, signed by president of Qatar’s council of ministers and interior minister Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Bin Khalifa Al Thani and the government’s chief Abdelilah Benkirane, its support to Morocco’s territorial integrity.The Qatari side hailed the role of HM King Mohammed VI, Chairman of Al Quds Committee, in safeguarding the legal status of the holy city of Al Quds, and praised projects carried out by Bayt Mal Al-Qods Agency.

Rabat – Travel agency Atlas Voyages commissioned a detailed survey from the firm Tiqan. The survey took a detailed look at the travel habits of Moroccans.Tiqan conducted the survey from July 2 to July 10 last year, with a sample of 458 people aged 18 to 60.When do most Moroccans go on vacation, and where do they go?When asking how often participants go on vacation, the survey found that just over 50% of respondents leave on vacation every six months, twice a year. Just over 20% travel once a year, and less than 15% three times, every four months. According to the survey, 98% of respondents said they choose to go on vacation during the summer.

A team from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) reached the town of Nabire yesterday to begin assessing the level of damages and the needs of the local population. The first earthquake, which measured between 6.8 and 6.9 on the Richter scale, struck on Friday just seven kilometers to the east of Nabire in the eastern-most province of the Indonesian archipelago. A second earthquake, with a magnitude of 7.1, struck on Saturday 73 kilometres southwest of Nabire. There have been further aftershocks, with one today measuring 6.6 on the Richter scale. The quakes have taken out all electricity and telecommunications in the area and damaged many buildings, according to OCHA. The airport is reduced to accepting only light aircraft. OCHA added that Indonesian officials have already removed debris and established temporary shelters for the quake victims. The priority relief tasks now include providing blood for transfusions and installing small power generators. read more

“The main causes of modern conflicts are discrimination and exclusion, failures of governance, impunity, deep-rooted poverty and lack of opportunities, aggravated by the growing effects of climate change,” Mr. Izetbegovic said during the Assembly’s annual general debate.Past failures have come at a very high human cost, and should have been instructional in how to better prevent and end conflicts. But the scenes from Syria or on Mediterranean shores are a reminder that those lessons have not been learned, he said.Using the advantages of its geopolitical position as a “bridge between the East and the West and a meeting point of civilizations,” his country wishes to advance dialogue and forge partnerships. The previous year has seen a renewed sense of unity and unprecedented levels of commitments in the form of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, the Paris Agreement on climate change, and others.“Peace is not merely absence of violence,” he said, adding that it represents a freedom from fear and insecurity. There can be no lasting peace and security when injustice and inequality are an everyday experience for millions as the resulting grievances make States unstable and societies vulnerable.He said that the world is facing its worst forced displacement crisis since the Second World War, with 60 million people forced to seek a better future in other countries. They are not “faceless statistics” but human beings with rights to hope and opportunity, he added.Hundreds of thousands of his country’s citizens had been forced out of their homes in the past, so it attaches great significance to addressing the challenge.As a newly elected member of the UN Economic and Social Council, he said Bosnia and Herzegovina will play an active role in implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. However, development must not come at the expense of habitat, and his country is adapting to climate change, with the aim of becoming a viable and advanced “green economy” by 2025. He went on to say that the Agenda is “not the answer to all our problems,” and human rights must be placed at the centre of actions. read more

The different components of blood, like the red blood cells, platelets and plasma, can help treat different conditions.The rarest blood type is O negative, which is also known as the “universal donor” type. It’s the only blood type that can give red blood cells to all the others, so it’s always in high demand, especially in emergency situations.“Those are often used for trauma patients when the doctors don’t have time to test their blood type or it’s used with babies in the NICU,” said Corbett.O positive is the most common, but there’s still a high need for it in our community because more people are coming in for this type. It can give red blood cells to any positive blood types.An A positive blood type is also really important. It’s the second most common and Corbett said it’s ideal for it’s platelets.“Platelets are the the part of the blood that help cancer patients,” said Corbett. “Usually when they’re going through chemotherapy, the chemotherapy kills the platelets and they need that replenished.”You have a unique gift as an AB positive or negative donor because of your plasma, which helps treat clotting disorders, burn and shock victims.“If you’re and AB blood type, you’re actually a universal plasma donor and plasma is often used with burn victims and people who need that rejuvenation while they’re in the hospital,” said Corbett.There’s also A negative, B positive, and B negative, but Corbett said regardless of your blood type, every type is needed and every type can save lives.“Each of those lives is someone in our community, someone may be our family member,” said Corbett. “I know my mom would not have met her grand kids had it not been for a blood donor.”The drives that were canceled because of the storms will be rescheduled.If you want more information on how or where to donate, visit the San Diego Blood Bank’s website.https://www.sandiegobloodbank.org/ , San Diego’s heavy rainfall impacts number of blood donorscenter_img Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Posted: February 18, 2019last_img read more

Christians don’t or haven’t killed each other? “combating Islamophobia,” Want to combat it? Tell them to stop killing each otherMaybe consider the jizya? David Allen says: February 21, 2019 at 9:41 am Share This! According to the Pew Research Center, black Muslims make up a fifth of U.S. Muslims. While black Muslims are significantly more likely than nonblack Muslims to say that Islam is important to their lives and that they pray five times a day, nonblack Muslims sometimes believe that their black counterparts are not real Muslims. Part of that may be rooted in inaccurate assumptions that most black Muslims belong to the Nation of Islam, which many consider to be heretical. In fact, just 2 percent of black Muslims currently identify with the Nation of Islam, Pew reports.And while about 92 percent of black Muslims say black people face “a lot” of discrimination, only 66 percent of non-black Muslims agree.Islam, 31, and educator Margari Aziza Hill, 43, saw in the viral hashtag an opportunity to expand the campaign into a long-term educational resource for Muslims who wanted to teach their own communities about race and religion.Namira Islam. Courtesy photoTogether, Hill and Islam launched the Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative, now commonly called MuslimARC. Their mission statement: “Education for liberation.”Almost immediately, organizations reached out to the pair asking them to lead trainings and consultations about racism within Muslim communities. They hosted a panel at the Islamic Society of North America’s conference that year and were invited to address a group of high school students competing at the annual Muslim Interscholastic Tournament. They were expecting an audience of 25 bored teens. Instead, they found themselves facing a rapt audience of 250.“So right away we realized this was more than a hashtag,” Hill, MuslimARC’s managing director, said. “These people all thought they were alone in their experiences. So we started to think about how to sustain the conversation, how to intervene in this issue that clearly needed to be discussed.”Five years since that conversation began, their project has helped to train some of America’s largest Muslim advocacy organizations in racial justice.Hill — who has a background in curriculum design and has taught at a community college as well as Islamic school and summer camp — had been taking a course on virtual instruction at the online education platform Coursera ahead of #BeingBlackAndMuslim’s launch.“I had this idea to make anti-racism accessible in the same sort of way,” said Hill. “Because how do you even learn anti-racism if you’re not on a campus or working with a social justice organization? If you’re just a regular lay person, how do you access that?”Their solution was to develop a set of curricula: for organizations to train their members about racial justice and combating Islamophobia, and for individuals to understand how to be better allies. They produced a toolkit to help Muslims understand how to respond to police brutality and Black Lives Matter — “we must unequivocally affirm the egalitarian nature of Islam in which the Qur’an and Sunnah (Islamic traditions based on the actions of the Prophet Muhammad) clearly condemn racism,” it noted — and hosted or facilitated online courses, webinars and meetups. Ahead of the anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X, they asked imams around the country to focus their Friday sermons on the shooting and his life.They also lead workshops and consultations for groups who need guidance in adopting inclusive practices. Their clients and partners have included the Council on American-Islamic Relations, MPower Change, Faith in Action, the Inner-City Muslim Action Network, Take On Hate, the Chicago Regional Organizing for Anti-Racism and Pop Culture Collab, with whom they consulted on the upcoming Sameer Gardezi-directed film series “East of La Brea.”Margari Aziza Hill. Courtesy photoMany mainstream Muslim advocacy organizations are now actively working for movements such as Black Lives Matter and pushing for funding more black Muslim grassroots projects, movements they once shied away from.At an event Feb. 10 celebrating MuslimARC’s five-year anniversary in Los Angeles, Hill told local Muslim leaders “we can trace the lineage of the language that we introduced.” National organizations that were once ruled by “respectability politics and a white aspirational lens,” she said, have now shifted to a “social justice lens.”Since that first hashtag conversation, MuslimARC says, it has reached more than 20,000 people in more than 40 cities.That number is multiplied by those who have been impacted by their work, like Islamic studies scholar Kayla Wheeler, who teaches at Michigan’s Grand Valley State University. Wheeler said that a series of interviews Hill and Islam conducted with Muslims of different racial backgrounds, which she found on Twitter, has helped her inform the way she teaches about Latino and Asian Muslims.#BeingBlackAndMuslim also inspired Wheeler’s 2-year-old Black Islam Syllabus project, in which she is compiling educational resources on black Muslims based on contributions solicited via Twitter.Wheeler, in turn, has inspired other academics to collect resources, such as the Sudan Syllabus, curated by University of Pennsylvania doctoral student Razan Idris, and the Islamophobia is Racism Syllabus, curated by 10 prominent scholars.“For me it’s a space to not only see myself recognized but also to challenge my own assumptions about what Islam is and who is involved in Islam,” said Wheeler. “It does a disservice to graduate students when we teach about Islam in a way that is Arab-centric and ahistorical.”MuslimARC executive director Namira Islam, from left, managing director Margari Aziza Hill and administrative director Hazel Gomez stand outside the site of ARCHouse in Detroit, Michigan. Courtesy photoHill and Islam say they want to lead a faith-driven dialogue that disrupts the often-fraught dynamics between non-black and black Muslims. Such tensions are particularly high in Detroit, which has America’s highest percentage of black residents, next door to Dearborn, America’s most Arab city.The demographics have led to clear tensions, particularly due to Arab-Americans’ entrepreneurial success (which some would call exploitative) with small businesses.This summer, Hill and Islam plan to open their first brick-and-mortar center, ARCHouse – a largely crowdfunded office and training space near Detroit’s historic Muslim Center mosque, founded in the 1980s under the leadership of Imam W. Deen Mohammed.The MuslimARC team is aware that the organization’s growth has something to do with the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement and the election of Donald Trump. Terms like “intersectionality” and “microaggression” – once nearly exclusive to academics – are bandied about easily these days.In some ways, that awareness has made MuslimARC’s work easier, Islam said. “It’s opened up a greater willingness to understand.“But while anti-racism is trendy now,” she added, “we have to remind folks that there’s long-term work to be done. We have to make sure we’re not so distracted by the crisis response that we don’t focus on the systemic issues that were there under Obama, too.”The founders of MuslimARC say they are themselves continuing to learn and relearn the meaning of racial justice. Part of that is because they have put together a diverse board that includes black, Latina, Arab and South Asian members, which they say helps expose them to new viewpoints – and puts them in a better position to call out the racism they see.“I’m not asking people to do anything that I myself have not done,” said Islam. Not in the name of Jesus. It would not make any sense. You seem to have a lot of knowledge on these issues peep.

The best fixes for racism are people-enacted public policies (via governments) which demand our respect of other people and other people’s rights. Our scriptures are vague and mostly off-point on this issue, and only have meaning anyway to those who volunteer to read or follow particular versions of them. But our societies’ secular governments can say, “Hey, we are going to treat everyone right” and enact laws to put all skin colors, all ethnicities, and national origins on equal footing with equal rights, opportunities and expectations of fairness anywhere inside the governments which do so. This kind of humanism really can do what God Writings have never accomplished. Don’t settle for any religions that diss or interfere with our secular sources of progress on racism. We don’t get the progress from anything else.

Black Muslims discussing their experiences with racism would receive messages saying that promoting separatism is un-Islamic. Non-Muslims as well as many prominent Muslims seemed to equate the faith with being Arab or South Asian. And the slur “abeed” — Arabic for “slave” — was commonplace.As Black History Month approached in 2014, she rallied a crew of about 20 activists and scholars to launch a new hashtag: #BeingBlackAndMuslim.“We wanted to reflect on the erasure of black Muslims in the conversations we were seeing online, as well as in our communities and institutions,” Islam said. “Because those erasures reflect what we’re seeing everywhere else.”And it resonated. For four hours that Feb. 10 five years ago, the hashtag trended on Twitter not only in the United States, but globally. The responses showcased black Muslims’ pride and joy in their culture and experiences, Islam said, as well as the heartbreak and betrayal they felt at the hands of their brothers and sisters in faith.Because of the racially egalitarian messages in the Quran and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, “people think if you’re Muslim you can’t be racist,” Islam noted. But that couldn’t be further from the truth, she said. peepsqueek says: Aysha Khan Aysha Khan is a Boston-based journalist reporting on American Muslims and millennial faith for RNS.

first_img Rosetta finally locates Philae lander a month before the mission endsScientists realize Comet 67P used to be two comets The European Space Agency’s (ESA) Rosetta mission accomplished many firsts in human space exploration. It was the first probe to reach a stable orbit around a comet, the first one to successfully deploy a lander on a comet, and the first to monitor a comet up close as it was heated by the sun. The ESA has now brought the Rosetta mission to an end with a crash landing on the surface of comet Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.Rosetta is not the first to crash into a comet (NASA’s Deep Impact did that in 2005), but it doesn’t make the event any less momentous. Rosetta reached the comet 67P in 2014, making history as the first man-made object to orbit a comet. It began snapping photos of the comet as it waited for it to reawaken as the sun heated the surface. In the meantime, Rosetta released the Philae lander in late 2014. Philae touched down on the comet, but the harpoons that were meant to secure it to the surface did not fire. The low gravity of 67P caused the probe to bounce several times, eventually coming to rest in a shadowy nook.Image of 67P from 5.8km during descent.The ESA was still able to get plenty of science done with Philae before its batteries ran low. It woke up briefly several months later as the comet neared the sun and more sunlight was available. A survey of the surface with Rosetta’s cameras recently revealed the resting place of Philae. Over the course of the mission, the ESA gathered data on the composition and structure of 67P. As a primordial clump of matter from the early solar system, this data could be invaluable in understanding how everything came together.Both Philae and Rosetta are solar powered, which is why Philae had problems on the comet’s surface. This is also why the ESA opted to “land” Rosetta on 67P. As the comet headed further out from the sun, Rosetta was unlikely to receive enough solar energy to remain operational. Rather than let the probe die a quiet death the cold depths of space, the ESA decided to send it out in a blaze of glory and get some really close-up data on 67P in the process.Rosetta executed its final maneuver at 2200GMT on September 29th, sending it down to the surface. 14 hours later, it made contact with the comet and the signal was lost. The ESA calculated that Rosetta was probably moving at roughly 2 miles per hour when it hit. That’s about walking speed for a human, but Rosetta wasn’t designed to land at any speed. The history-making probe now rests on a smooth patch of ground in the Ma’at region of 67P. It’s gone, but not forgotten. Stay on targetlast_img read more

first_imgBy Bejay BrowneTwo events protesting against the dangers of genetically modified organisms – GMOs- will take place on Saturday, one in Paphos and one in Nicosia.According to an announcement from March Against Monsanto (MAM) Cyprus, the events are aimed towards spreading awareness and enlightening the public about the dangers of consuming GMO’s or chemicals such as glyphosate.It said that such practices are a danger to humans, animals and the environment.The events offer an opportunity to: ‘Let our voices be heard as one across the world against corporate evil.’A genetically modified organism (GMO) is any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. GMOs are used to produce many medications and genetically modified foods and are widely used in scientific research and the production of other goods.Some argue they are essential to solving world hunger, while others are convinced they are harmful and killing us.March Against Monsanto (MAM) Cyprus is just one part of the worldwide campaign.Supporters will gather at Kennedy Square in Paphos on Saturday at 6pm, with informative flyers and to chat with people about GMOs. A similar event will be held in Nicosia at Phaneromeni Square at the same time.MAM Cyprus is a grassroots group who have been active in Cyprus since 2013.“Our ultimate goal is come together in solidarity to fight against multinational companies such as Monsanto Bayer and others until their doors are closed forever. “Monsanto is a multinational agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation that developed Roundup, a glyphosate-based herbicide in the 1970s and is now a major producer of genetically engineered crops.When sprayed with glyphosate, (aka round-up) GMO crops live and all other weeds are supposed to die. Glyphosate is marketed as a safe and low-residue herbicide.It is the most-used herbicide in the world and was re-licensed by the EU last year. However, the licence only runs for five years instead of the usual 15 due to a scientific row which started in 2015 over whether it causes cancer.Since then, several EU countries, regions and municipalities have moved to ban the substance, and MEPs have called for it to be phased out by 2022.In a statement issued later, Monsanto said: “The more than 20,000 people of Monsanto are committed to having an open dialogue about modern agriculture and how food is grown as we focus on using digital tools, data and research to find solutions that balance the need to feed people and protect the planet – we’re proud of the work we do, and we’re eager for people to know more about us. Through innovation and collaboration with farmers and partnering organisations, we develop new tools that help the world’s farmers grow food using less of the earth’s natural resources. We know people have different points of view on these topics, and it’s important that they’re able to express and share them.”You May LikeAmazingWomanMagTop 30 Most Beautiful Women in the WorldAmazingWomanMagUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameThe Must-Play City Building Game of the YearForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoJobs in UK | Search AdsGetting a Job in UK Might be Easier Than You ThinkJobs in UK | Search AdsUndo Two days of music to dance toUndoHouse rejects presidential veto over repossession lawUndoAt least 20 killed, 50 injured in attack on VP candidate’s office in KabulUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
