West Bank settlement. Photo: AFPIsrael on Wednesday approved construction of 1,958 new settler homes in the occupied West Bank, Israeli settlement watchdog Peace Now told AFP.It was fewer than the 2,500 for which defence minister Avigdor Lieberman said last week he intended to seek approval.It was the first tranche of settlement approvals since the controversial US embassy transfer to Jerusalem on 14 May, a move that infuriated Palestinians and intensified protests on the Gaza border, with at least 61 Palestinians killed in clashes with Israeli forces that day.Peace Now said that in Wednesday’s batch, around 700 units got final approval while the remainder passed the first approval stage in the planning process.It said that the majority were in isolated settlements outside the major “blocs” which the government will seek to retain in any future peace agreement with the Palestinians.Israel’s West Bank settlements are considered illegal under international law and are bitterly opposed by Palestinians.Peace Now said in a statement that there had been a leap in settlement-building during US President Donald Trump’s term so far, with about 14,000 approvals.That, it added, “is more than three times the amount that was approved in the year and a half before his inauguration (4,476 units).”
Share – / 3Harris County Attorney Vince Ryan sued Arkema, Inc., over chemical fires that broke out at the plant located in Crosby when it was flooded by Hurricane Harvey.The suit alleges the company violated Texas air and water pollution laws when the chemicals burned and wastewater tanks overflowed because of the flooding.The suit also claims the company doesn’t have floodplain permits it’s supposed to have for multiple structures at the plant. The county said air tests detected volatile organic compounds, which can cause cancer, more than 1 mile (1.61 kilometers) outside a 1.5-mile (2.41-kilometer) evacuation zone created before fires began.After flooding shut off power in August, the plant couldn’t cool and stabilize its organic peroxides.Arkema lawyer Rusty Hardin issued a written statement saying the sides had been discussing a resolution and “suing a victim is never the right solution to a natural disaster.”County Pollution Control Services Department claiming VOC detected far outside the 1.5 mile evacuation zone.

Is your teenage daughter popping pills to shed weight? Beware, she may be at an increased risk of harming hormones, growth as well as mental health, researchers warned.The findings showed that diet pills are unsafe for all ages but especially for teenagers due to the presence of toxic chemicals in the supplements.These pills interfere with the body systems and result in nutritional deficiencies, particularly of iron and calcium, the researchers said. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”In growing children and teenagers, even a marginal reduction in energy intake can be associated with growth deceleration,” dailymail.co.uk quoted the Canadian Pediatric Society researchers as saying. Weight loss pills are advertised as the quick solution to shedding pounds and obtaining the perfect figure, but they come with potentially dangerous side effects, including increased heart rate, fainting, unusual bleeding and heart attacks.Diet pills can also cause and, in extreme cases they can rip apart the stomach lining and even lead to death, the study showed. Further, researchers from the University of Minnesota said a startling 63 per cent of teenage girls use “unhealthy weight control behaviours” to maintain a slim shape.About 22 per cent of teenage females use “very unhealthy weight control behaviours”. The use of diet pills in teenage girls had a significant spike in a five-year span, jumping from 7.5 per cent to 14.2 per cent in 2006, they claimed.Instead of turning to diet pills, exercise, changing eating habits and drinking more water, mediation, are other healthy ways to lose weight, the reseachers said.
The Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) is preparing to send some of the best travel students around the world as part of an initiative to drive younger talent into the business travel market.Speaking at the inaugural ACTE forum down under since it announced Australasia as its newest region, executive director Ron DiLeo said the Group was preparing to launch its first Around the World in 80 Days program, commencing in Sydney from 10 to 16 March next year.Mr DiLeo explained contenders will spend the first week of the university accredited program in the NSW capital city before moving onto other cities across the globe and will be offered the opportunity to immerse themselves in everything there is to know about travel in that market.Spending up to three months on the road, the executive director noted that the course resembles a semester abroad with a two week internship as well as visits to buyers recognised for having best practises, go behind the scenes at relevant travel companies and behind the front desk of hotels and convention bureaus.“We did it because there’s five generations of leadership in business travel today,” Mr DiLeo noted.“The largest is the group that’s above 55 years of age, and the smallest is the under 30s group because they’re just not necessarily coming out of university and wanting to come into travel for whatever reason. “So we thought we needed to formalise a way to attract talent to the travel industry, we just want to get them into the industry and get them going.”While students benefit from high visibility among suppliers and multinational corporations, Mr DiLeo said businesses can also get involved with the option to sponsor a fellowship.He explained that corporations are able to buy talent before graduation by sponsoring a student to undergo the training.Sponsors have the option to chose from up to 30 universities around world involved in the program and from there provide students in a travel course that meet the appropriate criteria a top for their submission papers.From there the business then holds interviews with prospective students.Once a candidate is selected they agree to undergo internship with the corporation as well as agree to work with them after they graduate the program. During the forum the Group also reaffirmed its commitment to the Australasia market, announcing the appointment of several key personal down under.For more information click here.
