Tough (NZ) rules see migrants give up and go home

Some frustrated migrants are giving up and going home because they say new rules make it harder to work and stay in New Zealand.

In the year to April, more than 30,000 non-New Zealand citizens who had been here on a permanent or long-term basis left this country - up 23 per cent on the year before, according to Statistics NZ.

As a result, annual net migration is down 4800 from a high point a year ago.

Most were temporary migrants who arrived on student and work visas, experts believe.

Immigration policy changes introduced last year have made it harder for temporary migrants to gain residency.

“This is who Aaron Rich gets to represent against our team – can you imagine what it would charge to hire Harvey Weinstein’s defense lawyer? I don’t know how Rich hired these attorneys – the Rich family couldn’t even afford a private investigator, that’s why Ed Butowski offered to pay for Rod Wheeler,” he said. “But now they can afford the most expensive and powerful Democratic law firms in the country – how does that happen?”

To stop school shootings, use Israel's approach to fighting terror: Texas attorney general

American policymakers should look to Israel for guidance. Living constantly with the threat of terrorism, Israel solved the problem of school security long ago by hardening the target and tightening security practices. Every school with 100 or more students has at least one well-trained armed guard stationed at entrances to monitor who comes and goes.

These guards operate under the auspices of the Israel Police and undergo rigorous training every four months. Roughly 40% of applicants fail the training test, ensuring that only the cream of the crop defend the schools.

FBI Spy Halper Made "False, Absurd" Claims Of Russian Infiltration At Cambridge Involving Flynn

FBI informant Stefan Halper, who infiltrated the Trump campaign for the FBI during the 2016 election for the purposes of espionage, said that Russians had infiltrated the University of Cambridge where he works - allegations which those involved say are "false" and "absurd."

Halper made the "false allegations" in December 2016 about a Russian co-worker based on her interactions with former national security adviser Michael Flynn at a February 2014 Cambridge Intelligence Seminar (CIS) - while Flynn was President Obama's Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

A historian and Russian intelligence researcher at Cambridge, Svetlana Lokhova, told TheDCNF that Halper is behind allegations made about her and Flynn during the retired general’s visit to Cambridge in 2014, when he served as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. -Daily Caller

Palestinians will seek international protection at General Assembly

Palestinian Foreign Affairs Minister Riyad Al-Maliki said that Palestinians would call on the United Nations General Assembly to assemble under the heading “United for a Lasting Peace” to seek international protection for the Palestinian people because of a possible veto in the UN Security Council.

In a statement, Al-Maliki asserted that, “The US Mission in the UN expressed its objection to a bill for the international protection of the Palestinian people, which had been discussed in the UN Security Council, and expressed its willingness to use the veto against it.”

Palestinians have long been seeking a resolution that would provide international protection for the Palestinian people against the Israeli violations.

Residents in Newfoundland are digging out from a late spring snowstorm, with some areas buried under at least 30 centimetres of snow on May 24.

Environment Canada had issued snowfall warnings for several communities in the coastal province, including Gander and Grand Falls, while more than 30 centimetres of snow had already dumped on the region.

Bonavista Peninsula and Clarenville-area remained under a special weather statement Thursday and dozens of schools had postponed the start of classes as a result of the weather.

‘We’re Not Ready Yet’: What MH17 Investigation Won’t Discuss

"It is determined that the system that shot down the Boeing originated from the 53rd anti-aircraft missile brigade from Kursk in the Russian Federation."

The investigation team said it compared dozens of images and came to the conclusion that those "unique features" point towards a Buk missile system owned by a Russian army brigade.
However, they have never shared any of those pictures, nor elaborated what "unique features" they were talking about.

The investigation also says it suspects some 100 people were involved in the launch preparation, but have never published their names.

The investigation team head, the Netherlands' chief prosecutor Fred Westerbeke, said he cannot say who is responsible for this atrocity. Instead, he underscored that the investigation is continuing.

Assange's refuge in Ecuadorian embassy 'in jeopardy'

While Assange has in the past claimed his position in the embassy was under threat, sources say his current situation is "unusually bad" and that he could leave the embassy "any day now," either because he will be forced out or made to feel so restricted that he might choose to leave on his own. His position there is "in jeopardy," one source familiar with the matter said.
Assange's exit from the embassy could open a new phase for US investigators eager to find out what he knows.

End Of Unipolar World Looms As 'New World Order' Responds To US Demands On Iran

However, it is doomed to failure. As Iranian President Hassan Rouhani pointed out following the US Secretary of State’s declaration mirroring the views of President Donald Trump’s new national security adviser, John Bolton, the era when the US will “decide for the world” is over.

The Skripal Case Is Being Pushed Down The Memory Hole With Libya and Aleppo

Two months after his earth-shattering assassination, as the world stared spellbound at the weekend’s immensely popular PR spectacle of a royal wedding, Sergei Skripal was quietly discharged from the hospital he’d been staying at. The BBC reports that he is walking and approaching complete recovery.

Wait a second. Haven’t I seen this Python skit before?

So to recap, an ex-spy who had been retired and strategically irrelevant for years was reportedly poisoned by the Kremlin with Novichok, a scary Russian-sounding word which refers to a group of extremely deadly and fast-acting nerve agents that start shutting down the body’s muscles and respiratory system within 30 seconds to two minutes.

Except in the case of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia it was several hours with a leisurely stroll, a meal, and beers in between.

Here's The Viral Interview Of Exiled Saudi Prince Calling For Regime Change In Riyadh

A videotaped interview of an exiled Saudi prince living in Europe who is calling for regime change in his home country went viral this week. Prince Khaled bin Farhan was exiled from Saudi Arabia and given given political asylum in Germany in 2013, where he's not infrequently given interviews exposing the inner workings of the royal family, though he himself is distant in the line of succession.

While we don't expect the West to ever give close US-ally Saudi Arabia the Syria treatment of setting up a government in exile or establishing a "Free Saudi Army" to topple Riyadh, the fascinating interview given this week by the dissident prince included a brazen call for his uncles to take action to depose King Salman and the crown prince and take over the country.

Trump 2020 Campaign Puts Facebook And Twitter On Notice Over Conservative Censorship

Donald Trump's 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, along with Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, have written a letter calling for the CEOs of Facebook and Twitter to address concerns over conservative censorship ahead of the 2020 election, as well as a call for transparency.

The letter comes one day after a judge ruled that President Trump is no longer allowed to block Twitter users - deeming the platform a public forum, and that "the White House acts unlawfully when it excludes people from this forum." Consequently, will Twitter and Facebook be required to provide protections for conservatives whose voices are being muted? Parscale and McDaniel are now pushing for that, calling out the Silicon Valley behemoths for censorship.

And hours after The Daily Caller News Foundation asked prosecutors about the disclosure, Awan’s lawyer said he had learned of the forthcoming story from a source on Capitol Hill. TheDCNF had not told anyone other than prosecutors about it.

“The cop came to [Awan’s defense attorney] Chris Gowen’s office with a stack of papers … Then he came back and said, ‘I thought you guys were the other party.’ He was very, very angry. But Gowen made copies,” the source, who’s familiar with The Awans, told TheDCNF.

FLASHBACK - Jews DO Control The Media

We Jews are a funny breed. We love to brag about every Jewish actor. Sometimes we even pretend an actor is Jewish just because we like him enough that we think he deserves to be on our team. We brag about Jewish authors, Jewish politicians, Jewish directors. Every time someone mentions any movie or book or piece of art, we inevitably say something like, “Did you know that he was Jewish?” That’s just how we roll.

We’re a driven group, and not just in regards to the art world. We have, for example, AIPAC, which was essentially constructed just to drive agenda in Washington DC. And it succeeds admirably. And we brag about it. Again, it’s just what we do.

But the funny part is when any anti-Semite or anti-Israel person starts to spout stuff like, “The Jews control the media!” and “The Jews control Washington!”

To North Korea, the Libya model means the overthrow and murder of Libya strongman Col. Gadhafi, after he surrendered his WMD.

TIME TO END FOREIGN AID TO ISRAEL (AND EVERYONE ELSE)

In a genuinely free society (as compared to an unfree society that only purports to be free), people keep their own money and decide what they wish to do with it. Some donate to this cause, others donate to that cause, and some don’t make any donations at all.

That was one of the basic principles of freedom on which the United States was founded. Our American ancestors decided that this would be a society in which there would be no income taxation or IRS. Thus, for more than 100 years, the American people were free to keep everything they earned.

By the same token, no one was forced to share his income with others. In other words, no mandatory charity. That’s because our American ancestors believed that no one should be forced to be good and caring. If donations were to occur, they would have to come voluntarily and willingly from the income that people were free to keep.

Haifa activists vow to continue protests following ‘brutal’ police crackdown

Enraged and saddened by images from Gaza last week, when the Israeli military killed at least 62 people in a single day, Palestinian citizens of Israel protested on Friday in the coastal city of Haifa to demand an end to Israeli violence and the more than decade-long siege that has strangled Gaza into a humanitarian crisis.

Unlike similar peaceful marches held in Tel Aviv by predominately Jewish-Israeli protesters in days prior, in Haifa the estimated 500 demonstrators were met with riot police, widespread arrests and one human rights worker sustained a broken knee.

“The first reaction of the police to stop the demonstration was to use violence,” Bashar Ali, 22, a student studying social and political science at Tel Aviv University, told Mondoweiss.

‘What did you do when Gaza was dying?’ A visit with the freedom flotilla in Copenhagen

There is a Freedom Flotilla to Gaza taking place this summer with several boats from various countries. Several boats docked in Copenhagen for a couple of days as part of their journey to Gaza, which they plan to reach in late July.

From 2008 through to 2016, 31 boats have challenged the blockade. (The flotillas took a break in 2017.) These boats sail to challenge Israel’s Naval blockade on Gaza, part of its siege of Gaza that has lasted more than a decade. They have repeatedly been stopped from getting to Gaza; the most deadly incident in that history was the Israeli commando attack on the Turkish Mavi Marmara in 2010, in which 10 activists were killed by the Israeli soldiers in international waters.

Harvey Weinstein posts $1M CASH bail, agrees to wear GPS bracelet and plans to enter a plea of NOT GUILTY after he is seen smiling and laughing while being booked on rape charges

Harvey Weinstein was all smiles as he was charged with multiple counts of rape in a New York courtroom on Friday.

The 66-year-old disgraced movie mogul was arrested, processed and booked for the alleged sexual assault of two women shortly after 7:30am, arriving alone in a chauffeured SUV before being taken in to the station by two detectives.

He then headed off in handcuffs to criminal court, where he was paraded around in front of spectators and looked to be in a daze, exclaiming at one point: 'Wow.'

Weinstein's attorney Benjamin Brafman met him in court, holding his client's passport for all to see before surrendering it to the judge as part of his bail.

He also handed over a check to cover the $1 million cash bond before leaving the court, with Weinstein heading off alone to be fitted for his electronic monitoring bracelet.

Facebook and Google could be fined BILLIONS after being accused of ignoring GDPR rules and 'forcing' users to give them their private data

Facebook and Google may already have fallen foul of European privacy laws which took effect today, in a move that critics say could cost the companies billions.

As of today, firms that collect or process personal information online must now comply with new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) rules.

Companies should be informing their customers about the new regulations and giving them the choice of whether to continue giving them access to their data - but still be able to use their sites if they don't.

Campaigners say that Facebook, Google, Instagram and WhatsApp are breaking the terms of GDPR by threatening customers and suggesting they will be unable to use their sites unless they agree to share their data.

Campaign group NOYB.EU says it has filed legal complaints about this behaviour.

Trump Says Talking to North Korea, Summit Could Go Ahead on 12th

Earlier, US President Donald Trump canceled the June 12 summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un after Pyongyang reacted angrily to Washington's warning that the "military option" for the North Korean problem was still on the table.

US President Donald Trump said on Friday that conversations are underway right now with North Korea and a canceled summit with Kim Jong-un could go ahead on "the 12th," an apparent reference to June 12, the previously scheduled date of the meeting.

"We're going to see what happens. We're talking to them right now. It could even be the 12th… We want to do it," Trump told reporters.

Earlier in the day, the US president welcomed what he called warm and productive statements from North Korea, calling the recent remarks made by the country's leader Kim Jong-un "very good news."

Russian MoD: Missiles Shown By MH17 Investigators Were Decommissioned After 2011

The maximum lifetime of the missile, the engine from which was demonstrated by the Dutch commission last Thursday was 2011 (1986 + 25), after which all the missiles produced that year were seized, decommissioned and sent for disposal," the ministry said.

No new anti-aircraft missiles were supplied to Ukraine, which has about 20 battalions of BUK missiles systems since 1991, the ministry said, adding that a special number of the missile allegedly used to down the aircraft shows that it was produced in the Soviet Union in 1986.

Jon Parr said he had spent the last 10 years preparing to move his wife, Zusje, and their two sons from Santa Cruz, California, to Hawaii.

They sold their home in Santa Cruz to their dream home in Lanipuna Gardens for 'precisely two weeks' before they were forced to evacuate when the Kilauea volcano erupted on May 3, eventually causing fissure No. 20 to open just 200 feet from their home.

The national anthem in sports (spoiler: it wasn't always this way)

In America, the game doesn't start until the national anthem plays. It's not a mandate, it's just a fact, as culturally ingrained as team colors and touchdown cheers.

The anthem kicks off every NFL, MLB, NBA, MLS and NHL game featuring an American team, and is played before every NASCAR race.

The tradition runs deep, and it's easy to forget it wasn't always this way. It's also easy to forget that, while there are game-day expectations about how we should handle ourselves during the anthem, there's very little actually set in stone.

Fukushima is running out of storage tanks for radioactive water … Where will they dump it now?

Even though the nuclear disaster in Fukushima took place over seven years ago, radioactive waste has continued to build up as ground water flows through the destroyed reactor buildings and becomes contaminated. This creates a staggering 160 tons of contaminated water each day.

While the purification devices used by the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) do remove most of the radioactive materials, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen known as tritium cannot be removed, and tritium-contaminated water continues to cause big problems.

TEPCO cleared an area the size of 32 soccer fields to hold waste storage tanks with a total capacity of 1.13 million tons to deal with the water, but that space is almost completely filled, with about 1.07 million tons of capacity already consumed.

Family Removes Alexa Devices After a Stranger in Another Town Heard Everything They Were Saying

“My husband and I would joke and say I’d bet these devices are listening to what we’re saying,” Danielle said, noting that they never imagined the smart device would record their private conversations and then make them public.

After unplugging all of the devices, Danielle said she called Amazon multiple times before she received a response. When an Alexa engineer finally looked into Danielle’s claims, she said he acknowledged that the device had recorded conversations inside her home and emailed them to a random contact, and he then apologized profusely.

“They said ‘our engineers went through your logs, and they saw exactly what you told us, they saw exactly what you said happened, and we’re sorry.’ He apologized like 15 times in a matter of 30 minutes and he said we really appreciate you bringing this to our attention, this is something we need to fix!” Danielle said.

US opioid crisis: Mussels off Seattle found with oxycodone in their system

As the US continues to grapple with a widespread opioid epidemic, alarming research from Seattle indicates that the local population is consuming so much oxycodone that it’s seeping into the local water supply.

Scientists at the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife have found trace amounts of oxycodone in the Puget Sound using a study involving mussels. The shellfish are filter feeders who gain nourishment from their surroundings, while simultaneously absorbing whatever contaminants are also in the water – making them an ideal barometer for environmental scientists to test water pollution in a given area.

This Is How Amazon's Alexa Records And Shares Private Conversations Without Your Permission

Amazon explained the series of events that triggered the episode in an emailed statement. The Echo woke after hearing a word in the couple’s conversation that sounded like "Alexa" -- the usual trigger to begin recording. The speaker later heard "send message" during the conversation, at which point the device asked, "to whom?" The pair continued talking in the background and the Echo’s system interpreted part of the chat to identify a name in the couple’s contact list. Alexa then asked aloud if they wanted to send a message to that contact and heard "right" in more background conversation.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – MAY 25, 2018: ISRAELI, US STRIKES ON GOVERNMENT FORCES. WHAT IS GOING ON?

Late on May 24, Israeli warplanes carried out several strikes on the al-Dabaa airbase in the southwestern Homs countryside, according to pro-government sources. The Syrian Air Defense Forces (SADF) responded to the attack by launching at least 2 S-200 surface-to-air missiles, according to local activists.

The General Command of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) said in an official statement that the Israeli Air Force had targeted an airbase in central Syria. It added that the SADF had repelled the Israeli attack.

At the same time, reports appeared that the missiles launch were allegedly caused by a false alarm. However, this version is still unconfirmed.

The al-Dabaa airbase is well known for being one of the key HQs of Hezbollah in Syria.

Early on May 24, the Syrian state-run media and the Hezbolalh media wing in Syria reported that US-led coalition aircraft had carried out strikes on positions of the pro-government forces near al-Bukamal, al-Mayadin and the T2 pumping station.
