Immigration round ups in Bahamas condemned by activist group calls for desist

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, November 24, 2017 – Nassau – Immigration Department officials continue to deny that they know anything about a report where a Haitian mother and child fell off the back of a truck in Andros during an immigration raid.    Rights Bahamas claims the incident is real and is calling on The Bahamas Government to cease the crackdown citing that it has migrants running scared, even to the point of hurting themselves.The woman was said to have been trying to evade arrest when she fell off the back of the truck, a photo of a bruised child had been circulated on social media but no one is authenticating the image as true – at least no one other than the activist group.In a media release, Rights Bahamas said:   “This behaviour on the part of the immigration officers was totally illegal.   Frightened by the aggressive and illegal action of the officers, the driver sought to escape, resulting in a mother and her young child falling from the truck and sustaining injuries, the severity of which remain unknown. They were taken to a local clinic where, according to witnesses, they were detained by the Immigration officers.”Reaction to the call for a cease and desist by Rights Bahamas is outright rejected as Bahamians reacting to the report say it is the mother who put the child at risk and that anyone helping people to break the law should also be prosecuted.#MagneticMediaNews#activistcondemnimmigrationraidsphoto credit: Save the Bays Related Items:#activistcondemnimmigrationraids, #magneticmedianewslast_img read more

Wilmingtons iPods For Wounded Veterans Travel To Arizona Partner With Teamsters To

Enlisting the help of Local 104 and the VA as well as assistance of sponsors Bose, Best Buy, Big Lots and Hudson RPM, he organized an event for upwards of 150 vets that featured speakers, giveaways, food, drink and music.A retired member of Local 170 in Worchester, Mass., Cardello and his organization have repeatedly joined with Teamsters on the local and national level in order to give back to this nation’s wounded heroes. Officials from the Teamsters Military Assistance Program were on hand to advise former military members about career opportunities with the union.“This was a massive event,” Cardello said. “Everyone was involved in it.”Vets received earbuds from Bose and magazines from Hudson.

What Fridays OPEC Meeting Could Mean For Texas

first_imgBlake Thornberry via FlickrA pump jack in the Permian Basin in 2013The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries is set to considering allowing its members to increase their oil production at a meeting Friday in Vienna, Austria, a decision that could have implications for Houston-based oil companies and prices at the gas pump. Listen The oil cartel’s member nations have purposefully cut production since late 2016, in an effort to help stabilize global oil prices. Now, with that job largely accomplished, Saudi Arabia and Russia are reportedly pressuring OPEC members to open up the floodgates again.The cartel has also faced pressure from President Donald Trump, who railed against “too high” oil prices on Twitter this month, seemingly blaming the OPEC cuts.Wood Mackenzie oil analyst Ann-Louise Hittle said the outcome of the meeting is still “highly uncertain,” but there are three distinct possibilities:OPEC could maintain its current oil cuts agreement, which would still lead to weaker oil prices closer to 2019, as U.S. production continues growing.The organization, along with Russia, could agree to “moderate” combined oil increases of less than 1 million barrels/day in 2019, which would keep Brent crude prices hovering around $71/barrel through 2018.The meeting could lead to a “dramatic” increase of about 1.5 million barrels/day, which would “significantly” weaken global oil prices and lead to lower gas prices in the U.S. (This would be good news for President Trump, Hittle notes.)The firm said a moderate OPEC move is likely. Economist Karr Ingham, with the trade group Texas Alliance of Energy Producers, said that outcome wouldn’t slow down drillers here. “Pricing is going to be favorable for continued development in Texas and in the United States,” he said. “What it simply may do is slow the rate of that development just a touch, but it’s going to continue to be production growth.”Still, Ingham said Texas drillers are dealing with other headaches that could complicate the OPEC effect, namely the prospect of increased costs from President Trump’s steel tariffs.

Use of Dating Apps Surging Says Pew Study

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 3 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global February 11, 2016center_img Chances are, you know someone (or are someone) who either uses online dating apps or met his or her romantic partner using an online dating site or mobile app. Forty one percent of Americans know someone who uses digital dating aids and 29 percent know someone who has met a spouse or long-term partner that way, says a Pew study.The use of online dating sites and/or mobile dating apps steadily increased among American adults from 2013 to 2015 — from 11 percent to 15 percent — and the most prolific growth has been on two ends of the age spectrum: from 10 percent to 27 percent in the 18-to-24-year-old set and from 6 to 12 percent among those ages 55 to 64.The survey is based on the responses of more than 2,000 adults taken between June and July last year.Related: With This App, Women Always End Dates With More Cash in HandAn earlier Pew study shows that the numbers surge among higher levels of education and income. Fifty eight percent of college graduates know people who use online dating compared to 25 percent among those with just a high school degree.Overall, Americans are overwhelmingly positive about their experiences with online dating. Eighty percent agree that online dating is a good way to meet people, 62 percent think that the intersection of dating and technology allows for a better match and 61 percent say that it offers more convenience and efficiency.Related: 6 Dating Apps That Are Putting a Fresh Spin on Finding LoveWhile digital dating users can agree that the dating options offer more advantages than not, some of the drawbacks cited are personal safety issues (45 percent), the tendency to keep dating because of the plethora of options (31 percent) and the image of “desperation” associated with online dating sites (16 percent).However, the majority of people who are currently using online dating sites aren’t desperate or even looking for hookups. A mere 25 percent of the respondents currently dating online say they’re in it just for fun. Most are looking for deeper human connections. Sixty percent of current users say that the reason why they’re dating online is to meet people with similar interests or hobbies and over 50 percent hope to meet someone who shares similar beliefs and values.Almost half of the respondents currently using dating apps/online services are digital romantics — and hope to find the “one.”Related: The Biggest Dating Problem Entrepreneurs Have  Register Now »last_img read more
