    '''The EXPO experience being adopted in Aktobe'''

    According to reports of 24.kz TV Channel, wind power stations will soon be installed at the Aktobe water intakes to feed power to oil wells.

    The idea was adopted at the Pavilions of Azerbaijan and Germany during the EXPO-2017 International Exhibition hosting.

    “Our enterprises have realized to what extent it is possible today to reduce prime cost, improve environmental situation and many other indices in which analysis has been done today. In oil and gas industry, mining industry and engineering industry, our enterprises have found new technologies actual here. Agricultural enterprises have also found new applications and contracts for themselves with pavilions of many countries. Even in educational field, universities concluded memoranda with many large educational institutions,” told Vice Governor of Aktobe Region Kayrat Bekenov the 24.kz Channel.


  • The Dissapearence of Tom Yates

    On 24th September 2017, Tom Yates a qualified engineer sort of person, disappeared without trace causing upset and grief for his friends and family.

    Tom was due to pick up his young daughter in the early hours of of Sunday 24th September however did not show up. His ex wife, called numerous times however was unable to get through on his phone and raised the alarm across social media, his friends and family, his local haunts and various "extra curriculum clubs" Tom would visit.....but to no avail. Friends started to panic as Tom was not someone that would usually just disappear (apart from that time he couldn't get out of the gimp suit following a night out with a Grinder date but that's another article).

    So this disappearance caused a lot of Tom's friends to worry and seek refuge through social media posts (the ones with silly colour backgrounds normally reserved for outbreaks of "look at me" "everyone look at me" and "fuck my life" posts) asking for help) in identifying if anyone had "Seen Tom! Hospitals were called, police stations were called, local bars and clubs were called too but no one had seen Tom. A police report was made and concerned friends and family urged people to be more vigilant and if they had any news of Tom's sighting or whereabouts to call Nuneaton Police Station quoting case 362.

    There were rumours Tom had been Spiked in a local club and one social media was sure Tom was in the hospital stating "He's in the hospital, there's definitely someone called Tom in the hospital" but that was not Tom.

    Tom later resurfaced, declaring to everyone he was safe. That he had his battery in his phone had just depleted and that he was sorry he caused grief to everyone who worried. However , for hours to come "social media superheros" were still sharing posts looking for Tom.

    So where was Tom?

    Tom was interviewed by the local rag, The Nuneaton Telegraph, and although was still continuing to stick to his story of his depleted phone battery, his story started to fall apart and cracks in his account of what happened could not stand up to the brute strength of the journalist's questioning. Tom, visable shaken promptly ended the interview and disappeared back to his home. Will we ever know what happened to Tom? Will his story ever come out? or is the story of a depleted battery actually the truth? Maybe one day we will find out, maybe one day Tom will tell us in a drunken late night lock in at his local pub, maybe the discovery channel will reenact his adventure.....who knows!

  • North Korea says US declared war on them

    Darkfrog24:


    {{review}}{{date|September 25, 2017}}{{North Korea}}
    Today, [[North Korea|North Korean]] foreign minister {{w|Ri Yong-un}} said the [[United States]] President [[Donald Trump]] had "declared war" with the country after Trump said he would "totally destroy" North Korea if they continued controversial nuclear tests in his speech to the United Nations General Assembly last week. Yong-un also added they had the right to shoot down US bombers even if they were not in North Korean airspace. This violent rhetoric has met with concern from China and neutral parties.

    Yong-un said, "Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside the airspace border of our country." Just two days earlier, two United States war planes flew near but not into North Korea's airspace.

    Representatives of the Trump administration confirmed to the press that the United States has not actually declared war on North Korea. However, over the past few days, President Trump has issued a series of [[Twitter|Tweets]] and speeches, including his address at the [[United Nations General Assembly]] containing threatening language. One Tweet read: "Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at UN. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!" "Little Rocket Man" is President Trump's nickname for North Korean leader [[Kim Jong-un]], a reference to his country's recent missile tests, for which it was recently sanctioned by the [[United Nations]].

    Colonel Robert Manning was less explicit: "If North Korea does not stop their provocative actions, you know, we will make sure that we provide options to the president to deal with North Korea."

    Representatives of both the UN and North Korea's principal ally, China, expressed concern at the confrontational rhetoric. "Fiery talk can lead to fatal misunderstandings," said Secretary General {{w|António Guterres}}' spokesperson, Stéphane Dujarric.

    China's ambassador to the United States, Liu Jieyi told ''[[Reuters]]'', "We want things to calm down. It's getting too dangerous and it's in nobody's interest."

    There is some question regarding whether North Korea could carry out Yong-un's threat. The North Koreans did shoot down one US plane in 1969 and another in 1994, but since then their airforce has aged and is often short of trained pilots and fuel.

  • Japan: Prime minister Shinzo Abe prepones election

    Mikemoral: c/e


    {{review}}{{date|September 25, 2017}}{{Japan}}

    Today, [[Japan|Japanese]] prime minister [[Shinzo Abe]] announced plans to dissolve on Thursday the {{w|House of Representatives (Japan)|House of Representatives}}, the lower house of the {{w|National Diet|Japanese parliament}}, and to call for a {{w|snap election}} for next month. Abe said he called the election in order to overcome a "national crisis" and to rebalance security issues of the country.

    Although Abe did not specify a date for the snap election, {{W|Natsuo Yamaguchi}}, head of {{W|Komeito Party}}, who formed a coalition with Abe's {{W|Liberal Democratic Party (Japan)|Liberal Democratic Party}} (LDU), said the snap election is scheduled for October 22.

    Hours before Shinzo Abe announced the dissolving of the lower house, [[Tokyo]]'s Governor {{W|Yuriko Koike}} announced she would lead conservative party called "Party of Hope", and compete against LDU for the majority in parliament. LDU currently holds two-thirds of seats in the lower house.

    Shinzo Abe, who has served as the prime minister for the last five years, said, "I will demonstrate strong leadership and stand at the forefront to face a national crisis [...] This is my responsibility as leader and my mission as prime minister."

    His rebalance includes improving child care and education system. To achieve this, a part of revenue generated from 2019's scheduled tax hike would be credited for those targets instead of going to the public debts. Abe has also called for a {{W|Yen|¥}}2 trillion ({{w|pound sterling|£}}13.2 billion, [[US$]]17.8 billion) plan before 2018 for those two targets.

    Talking about the election, Abe said, "It will be a difficult election, in order to overcome these national problems, I have to listen to the people's voice." Opposition candidate Koike questioned crisis management pointing the unrest [[North Korea]]'s ballistic missiles had caused in the recent weeks. She said, "I see a big question mark on calling an election in the midst of the North Korean situation being so critical, [...] I wonder if it is appropriate in terms of crisis management for the country."

    North Korea's two missiles flew over Japan in the last month. North Korea also conducted their sixth nuclear test on September 3. It was the their biggest test so far.

    In reference to North Korea's actions, Shinzo Abe, said, "We must not give in to North Korea's threats. By gaining a mandate from the people with this election, I will forge ahead with strong diplomacy".

    If Abe wins the election, he would become longest serving prime minister of Japan after the war.

  • Iraq: Citizens vote for Kurdistan independence

    Acagastya: missed a word


    {{review}}{{date|September 25, 2017}}{{Iraq}}
    Today, in the northern parts of [[Iraq]], Kurdish people voted for independent {{W|Kurdistan}} referendum. More than five million people in the autonomous state of Kurdistan, and its controlled areas; province of {{W|Kirkuk}}, city of {{W|Erbil}} as well as Iraq's capital [[Baghdad]] balloted their votes in more than 2000 polling stations, despite the referendum was strongly opposed by the Iraqi central government.

    The voting begun at 8AM, local time (UTC+0300), and was open for ten hours. The ballot read, "Do you want the Kurdistan Region and Kurdistani areas outside the Region to become an independent country?" The question was written in the Arabic, Kurdish, Assyian and Turkish languages. On Sunday, president of Kurdistan's regional government {{W|Masoud Barzani}} defended the non-binding referendum, saying, "Is it a crime to ask people in Kurdistan to express in a democratic way what they want to have for the future?" He also said the Kurdish government would provide Baghdad "as much time as needed" for the negotiation, but Kurdistan would "never go back to the failed partnership". The Kurds are the largest ethnic group in Iraq. Kurdistan got the status of autonomous province in 1991.

    The Iraqi government asked neighbouring countries not to import oil from Kurdistan. On Sunday, Prime minister {{W|Haider al-Abadi}} called this referendum an "unconstitutional decision against the social fabric of our citizens. We will not recognise the referendum, nor its results". He also said, "We will take follow-up steps to protect the unity of the country and the interests of every citizen living in a unified Iraq."

    Neighbouring countries of Iraq expressed their support for the Iraqi central government. [[Iran]] blocked land border with Kurdistan yesterday. Spokesperson of Iranian ministry, Behram Qasimi said, "at the request of Iraq, we have closed the airspace and ground borders with the Kurdish Regional Government". [[Turkey|Turkish]] president [[Recep Tayyip Erdoğan]] said Turkey had blocked the {{W|Habur border}}, and they would stop importing oil from Kurdistan. Air connectivity from Iran and Turkey to Kurdistan province was blocked from Sunday. {{W|Walid Muallem}}, [[Syria]]n foreign minister, said they recognise united Iraq only.

    Referendum results are expected to be declared by tomorrow.

  • United States: New travel ban bars North Korea, Venezuela; Sudan exempted

    Darkfrog24: rm. unnec. punct.


    {{review}}{{date|September 25, 2017}}{{Politics and conflicts}}
    [[File:Donald_Trump_by_Gage_Skidmore.jpg|thumb|left|President Donald Trump {{image|Gage Skidmore}}]]
    Today, US President [[Donald Trump]] decided to include [[North Korea]], [[Venezuela]] and [[Chad]] on a list of countries whose residents are banned from traveling to the [[United States]]. The US government reported that these bans are primarily meant to address the lack of security in or lack of cooperation by these countries with the United States and their allies. Residents of North Korea and Chad are banned entirely, but for Venezuela, the ban is limited to only a agents of few government entities and their families.

    The rest of the countries covered by this measure are [[Iran]], [[Libya]], [[Syria]], [[Somalia]] and [[Yemen]]. [[Sudan]], which was included in the older versions of the travel ban, has been exempted. Some Iranian students will still be allowed to enter the United States but will be subject to more rigorous vetting than others. Residents of Chad, Yemen and Libya may be allowed to travel to the US for business purposes. No immigration will be allowed from Somalia, but nonimmigrants will be permitted if they pass an enhanced vetting process.

    "Making America Safe is my number one priority. We will not admit those into our country we cannot safely vet," President Trump announced via [[Twitter]].<!--CNN-->

    Acting Secretary of the {{w|United States Department of Homeland Security}} Elaine Dunn said the purpose of the measure is "to better keep terrorists and criminals from entering our country."<!--CNN-->

    The most recent previous version of the Trump travel ban allows anyone with a "bona-fide relationship" with someone already in the US to enter the country. Such people will still be allowed to apply to do so until the current version takes effect on October 18. No current {{w|green card|green cards}}, papers proving that a non-citizen is a legal resident of the US, are set to be revoked.<!--CNN-->

    Last week, Trump expressed concern over North Korea's nuclear testing at the [[United Nations]] [[United Nations General Assembly|General Assembly]] by threatening to "totally destroy" the nation of over 25 million people, calling the country's leader, [[Kim Jong Un]], "rocket man" and saying that Kim was "on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime."

    Previous versions of the Trump travel ban faced legal challenges as a ban on [[Islam|Muslims]] because all of the countries listed have Muslim majorities. The two new additions, North Korea and Venezuela, do not. Some, such as {{w|Anthony D. Romero}} of the [[American Civil Liberties Union]] plan to challenge the new travel restrictions on discrimination grounds anyway:

    "Six of President Trump's targeted countries are Muslim. The fact that Trump has added North Korea&mdash;with few visitors to the US&mdash;and a few government officials from Venezuela doesn't obfuscate the real fact that the administration's order is still a Muslim ban," said Romero. "President Trump's original sin of targeting Muslims cannot be cured by throwing other countries onto his enemies list."

    The [[United States Supreme Court]] is scheduled to review the constitutionality of the travel ban in October. The Supreme Court cancelled validating the previous ban due to the latest changes.

  • Uber London not to be issued with operator licence after September

    Numbermaniac: the grammar seems a bit weird there; also corporate was spelt wrong


    {{date|September 25, 2017}}
    {{United Kingdom}}
    On Friday, {{W|Transport for London}} (TfL) announced [[US]]-based {{wikt|taxi}} booking application {{W|Uber (company)|Uber}} would not get a renewed private hire operator license after their current permit expires at the end of the month. The regulatory body released an official statement on their website and stated Uber London Limited was "not fit and proper to hold a private hire operator license".

    TfL said Uber London "demonstrate[d] a lack of corporate responsibility" for reporting serious criminal offences, and for obtaining background of the drivers and medical certificates. In August, police said Uber allowed a driver despite allegations of {{w|sexual assault|sexually assaulting}} a passenger. The company has been accused of sexism and bullying. TfL in its statement also complained about possible use of "{{W|greyball}}" software to prevent officials from accessing the application for law enforcement duties.

    According to Uber's statistics, about 3.5 million people in {{w|London}} use Uber. There are some 40 thousand drivers tied with Uber within the British capital. Per the Private Hire Vehicles (London) Act 1998, Uber can appeal against TfL's decision within three weeks. Uber received an interim renewal for four months in May, and it is set to expire at the end of the month. To this announcement, Uber London's General Manager Tom Elvidge said, "By wanting to ban our app from the capital Transport for London and the Mayor have caved in to a small number of people who want to restrict consumer choice. If this decision stands, it will put more than 40,000 licensed drivers out of work and deprive Londoners of a convenient and affordable form of transport. To defend the livelihoods of all those drivers, and the consumer choice of millions of Londoners who use our app, we intend to immediately challenge this in the courts." He also added, "This ban would show the world that, far from being open, London is closed to innovative companies who bring choice to consumers."

    TfL said Uber's irresponsibility could compromise the safety and security of the public. In contrast, Uber's response said their service enhances safety. London mayor {{w|Sadiq Khan}}, on {{w|Facebook}}, said, "[...]all companies in London must play by the rules and adhere to the high standards we expect &mdash; particularly when it comes to the safety of customers. Providing an innovative service must not be at the expense of customer safety and security. I fully support TfL's decision &mdash; it would be wrong if TfL continued to license Uber if there is any way that this could pose a threat to Londoners' safety and security. Any operator of private hire services in London needs to play by the rules."

    Uber has received criticism from traditional taxi drivers as well as government officials. Uber was banned from [[Bulgaria]] and [[Denmark]], and faces regulatory issues in [[France]], [[Italy]], [[Hungary]], and [[Spain]]. It also faced legal inquiry for use of greyball in the US to resist government regulation of the application. Regarding the complaint about improper use of use of Greyball, Elvidge cited an independent review and said it "found that 'greyball' has never been used or considered in the UK for the purposes cited by TfL". Uber operates in over 40 cities and towns in the UK.

These doctors recently were found dead while being on call. Unfortunately, the toll is much higher and listed doctors passed away only during couple of weeks (August-early September 2017). While the exact causes of their deaths are still under investigation, each time the story is nearly identical. All of them were working in multiple healthcare facilities and died after many hours spend at work and often before starting another on call. The Włoszczowa’s doctor was on duty for 24 hours in the general surgery department and afterwards he has been scheduled to immediately start another on call at the A&E department, which he did not live up to.1 Let all of them rest in peace. But how we get that happen and why?<br>
    [[File:Mercedes_ambulance_PICT0112.jpg|thumb|left|Polish ambulance Mercedes-Benz in Kielce, Poland]]

    The working conditions are forcing doctors to work more and more. Having just 2.3 doctors per 1000 population, Poland is one of the last places in OCED’s health care report<ref>OECD. Health at a Glance: Europe 2016.; 2016. doi:10.1787/9789264012639-en.</ref>. The average hourly junior doctor’s salary is equivalent to £2.61(3.13€), while specialists typically receive £3,23 (3,87€)/hour<ref>Dabrowski FA, Oleksiak A, Sladowska A. Problems of junior doctors in Poland: scientific insight. Bmj. 2016;4132(July):i4132. doi:10.1136/bmj.i4132.</ref>. Not surprisingly, nearly 90% of polish doctors reported need of working over-hours to make a living, which ends up spending on average >70 hours per week at work<ref>Dabrowski FA, Oleksiak A, Sladowska A.

But core of the problem is also reflected in the doctor’s demographic statistics. The mean polish doctor age is among the highest in the EU (54,5 years). Moreover polish doctors live shorter than average life expectancy in Poland (even 11 years shorter, based on the single-province study)<ref>Kijak R. Leczenie kosztem życia lekarza [Treatment at the expense of a doctor’s life]. Służba Zdrowia. 2009;43-46:22-23.</ref>. <br>

Bmj. 2016;3472(June):i3472. doi:10.1136/bmj.i3472.</ref> the government have not decided to change much of health care professionals work conditions. At the beginning of October polish junior doctors will start another protest – hunger strike. The main point is to set up proposed fixed minimal compensation for different types of healthcare workers. Hopefully, there may will come the times, we will never hear again about the death of an over-worked doctor in Poland.

  • Foreign workers paid thousands to obtain jobs in Canada

    Acagastya: Not ready when reviewed: article needs improvement(s). Add article flag. (Using easy peer review


    {{tasks|news|re-review}}
    {{date|September 1,8 2017}}
    {{Canada}}

    The {{w|Supreme Court of British Columbia}} has certified a Class Action lawsuit against {{w|Mac's Convenience Stores}} (Mac's) and three immigration consultants. The case involves 450 foreign workers who allege they were enticed to come to Canada with promises of jobs. Each of the workers paid a fee of up to $8,500 to the consultants for a job with Mac's. The {{w| Class_action#Canada|Class Action}} lawsuit was certified on Monday by Justice Arne Silverman.

    The jobs were offered to the workers under the {{w|Temporary foreign worker program in Canada|Temporary Foreign Worker Program}} which specifies that fees for job placements must be paid by the employer. The government has not laid charges in this matter.

    One of the plaintiffs, Prakash Basyal, says he met one of the defendants at a job fair in Dubai. He interviewed with a representative of Mac's and signed a two-year contract for a low wage cashier's job in {{w|Edmonton, Alberta}}, and paid the agreed fee of $8,000. After he quit his job in Abu Dhabi, he arrived in {{w|Vancouver, British Columbia}} and received a permit allowing him to work for Mac's, but was told the job he contracted for was not available. He was then left with no choice but support himself working illegally at a bottle depot in Calgary where he was discovered by {{w|Canada Border Services Agency}} and arrested. He was handcuffed, detained and humiliated.

    Lawyers representing the workers claimed that abuses under the Program are common. They say this leaves foreign workers vulnerable. The defendants declined comment.

  • US toy retail giant Toys R Us files for bankruptcy in US, Canada

    Numbermaniac:


    {{date|September 21, 2017}}{{Economy and business}}
    On Monday night, [[New Jersey]], [[US]]-based toy retail giant {{W|Toys R Us}} filed for bankruptcy in the US as well as in [[Canada]]. The retailer filed it from [[Richmond, Virginia|Richmond]], [[Virginia]] for Chapter 11 bankruptcy code in the US, and a judge allowed a loan of over [[US$]]2 billion.

    According to the filing, the retail chain owns US$6.6 billion in assets, but has a debt of US$7.9 billion. They were under a roughly US$5 billion debt since the company underwent a three-way acquisition in 2005. {{w|Kohlberg Kravis Roberts}}, {{W|Bain Capital}}, and {{W|Vornado Realty Trust}} acquired Toys R Us for around US$7 to US$7.5 billion. After the US judge approved a loan, Toys R Us received about US$3 billion from the lenders to continue the business and survive a competitive market, and restructure their business model. E-commerce giant [[Amazon.com]], [[Walmart]] and {{W|Target Corporation|Target}} are some of the competitors for the conventional '{{wikt|brick and mortar}}' toy shop, with lower priced-merchandise and fast, cheap delivery. In a conference call in June, CEO {{W|Dave Brandon}} said "very, very aggressive pricing online" was causing problems. He also said the company was experiencing "significant weakness in demand for their products globally". Toys R Us are to clear a debt of US$400 million by May 2018.

    Toys R Us said they would continue to operate for the holiday season. Bankruptcy lawyer Jeff Gleit said Toys R Us "need to do both a financial restructuring as well as an operational restructuring" and "needs to modernize with the times". Last holiday season, Toys R Us made sales around US$4.5 billion. Overall, the company reported a US$29 million loss in 2016. CEO Brandon said, "Our objective is to work with our debt holders and other creditors to restructure the US$5 billion of long-term debt on our balance sheet, which will provide us with greater financial flexibility to invest in our business".

    Toys R Us employs more than 60 thousand people in 38 countries around the world in more than 1600 stores. The company's stocks fell by six percent after filing for Chapter 11 protection. US bankruptcy code Chapter 11 allows the company to restructure under a plan approved by the court. The company would also be shielded from creditors' claims during the process. For the stores located in Canada, Toys R Us filed bankruptcy in {{w|Ontario}} and are to undergo reorganisation. However, 259 stores located outside the US or Canada will not undergo reorganisation, the company said.

    Over 300 US-based retailers have filed for bankruptcy this year, and hundreds of stores closed.

  • U.S. President Donald Trump vows to &quot;totally destroy&quot; North Korea if it threatens America or its allies

    Quinton Feldberg: Adding things


    {{tasks|news|re-review}}{{date|September 20, 2017}}
    {{United States}}

    [[File:Donald_Trump_by_Gage_Skidmore.jpg|thumb|left|President Donald Trump {{image|Gage Skidmore}}]]
    During his speech at the {{w|United Nations}} {{w|United Nations General Assembly|General Assembly}} last Tuesday, [[United States]] President {{w|Donald Trump}} expressed concern over {{w|North Korea}}'s nuclear testing by threatening to "totally destroy" the nation of over 25 million people, calling the country's leader, {{w|Kim Jong Un}}, "rocket man" and saying that Kim was "on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime."

    On Thursday, Kim called Trump a "a mentally deranged megalomaniac" and said that he would "pay dearly" for the threat he had made. Kim called Trump "a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire, rather than a politician." Kim called Trump's speech the "most ferocious declaration of war in history" and threatened the "highest level of hardline countermeasure" in response. Kim said that Trump had "rendered the world restless through threats and blackmail" and was "unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country." Kim said, "his remarks have convinced me - rather than frightening or stopping me - that the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last."

    On Saturday, North Korean Foreign Minister {{w|Ri Yong Ho}} called Trump's "rocket man" comment an "irreversible mistake". He added that North Korea was "only a few steps away" from completion of its nuclear force. In response, Trump went on Twitter and said, "Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at UN If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!"

    On Monday, Ri vowed to shoot down US planes and said that "the whole world should clearly remember it was the US who first declared war."

  • Earthquake strikes Mexico City

    {{date|September 20, 2017}} <!-- substitutes the date automatically; you don't need to modify the template -->

    A 7.1 earthquake struck the [[Mexico|Mexican]] states of {{w|State of Mexico|Mexico}}, {{w|State of Puebla|Puebla}} and {{w|State of Morelos|Morelos}} at 1:14 p.m. local time (18:14 GMT) Tuesday, shortly after the residents of the capital, [[Mexico City]], completed an earthquake drill. As of today<!--Wednesday-->, the death toll has reached 237.<!--Guardian-->

    According to the [[United States Geological Survey]], the epicenter was in Puebla, about 75 miles (120 km) from Mexico City. Almost 100 people are reported dead, 26 in Puebla, 54 in Morelos and 39 in Mexico, including the capital.<!--BBC--> Dozens more have been dug out of the rubble still alive,<!--CBS--> many with the rescuers' bare hands. One girl, named Frida Sofía, who was trapped in the collapsed Enrique Rebsamen primary and secondary school, was able to show diggers she was still alive by wiggling her fingers. Volunteers and members of the army managed to free her from the rubble, but more than 30 of her classmates are still not accounted for.<!--Guardian-->

    "People here are are used to encountering these types of situations, but this time, I definitely sensed more fear from people," freelance reporter Manuel Rueda, who was in Mexico City for the quake, told ''CBS News''.

    "We were all running like crazy," said Leticia Gonzales, who lives in the city. "This was the worst earthquake I've ever seen."<!--WPost-->

    The drill was held because Tuesday was the anniversary of an 8.0 earthquake that hit Mexico City in 1985, killing 10,000 people. Since then, many of the city's buildings have been rebuilt specifically to resist earthquakes,<!--Al Jazeera--> which President [[Enrique Peña Nieto]] declared successful some days ago. As of Wednesday, about 44<!--Guardian--> buildings are said to have collapsed in this week's quake.

    "The government's boast about the triumph of the new building codes were clearly bullshit, and have come falling down as we see new buildings have collapsed while older ones have survived," public policy analyst Rodolfo Soriano Nuñez told the press. "The situation in the school – which is quite new – should not have happened."<!--Guardian-->

    This is the second major earthquake to hit Mexico in two weeks. On Thursday, September 7, an 8.1 earthquake, the strongest in decades, struck {{w|State of Oaxaca|Oaxaca}} in the southern part of the country.<!--BBC-->

    Seismologist Lucy Jones told the press, "This earthquake is smaller [than the September 7 quake] but closer to many more people. So where the 8.2 was offshore&mdash;and at a depth of 40 miles down&mdash;this is only 80 miles from Mexico City, about 30 miles down, and with a lot of people nearby. Proximity makes a big difference," she said. She went on to explain that Mexico City's location, on a the dried-out bed of an ancient lake with loose soil, means earthquakes are felt with more force there than in other cities: "Here in downtown Los Angeles, we have a factor of five amplification because of soils. In Mexico City, it's over a factor of 100."<!--CBS-->

    After the September 7 quake, geologists such as Vlad Manea of the {{w|National Autonomous University of Mexico}} speculated that the earthquake itself and its more than 1000 aftershocks may have been enough to close or stabilize the Tehuantepec gap in the {{w|subduction zone}} between the North American and Pacific {{w|tectonic plates}}, where that quake's epicenter was located, but other scientists, such as Joann Stock of the {{w|California Institute of Technology}} speculated that future quakes would be worse, not milder.<!--Science--> Scientists say that while the two quakes were driven by the same overall tectonic process, the North American plate pressing the Cocos plate down into the Earth, it is unlikely that the September 7 quake actually caused today's event. According to Don Blakeman of the [[United States Geological Survey]], "In general, we don't think there's a triggering effect over that kind of a distance," though quakes in California are known to set each other off over much shorter distances, within hours.<!--WPost-->

  • Hurricane Maria, now category 5, bears down on Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands

    Despite a continued flash flood warning and announcements from authorities that the area remains unsafe, residents began returning to the towns of Isabela and Quebradillas in northwestern [[Puerto Rico]] today after a spillway operation drained water away from the Guajataca Dam, which developed a crack in response to heavy rainfall from {{w|Hurricane Maria}}.<!--Guardian 24--> According to federal officials, some 70,000 people were slated for evacuation.

    "We were able to directly observe the damages of the Guajataca dam," Governor Ricardo Rossello announced on [[Twitter]] yesterday. "We re-affirm the evacuation order for the area."

    The crack was initially reported as a "contained breach," but Puerto Rican authorities later announced that the dam was failing. As of Saturday night, the dam continues to hold, but it is not clear for how long.

    "There's no clue as to how long or how this can evolve. That is why the authorities are moving so fast," said Anthony Reynes of the United States National Weather service, "because they also have the challenges of all the debris. It is a really, really dire situation ... We really don't know how long it would take for this failure to become a full break of the dam."<!--Guardian-->

    {{w|Hurricane Maria}}, which struck scarcely a week after {{w|Hurricane Irma}}, dropped more than 15 inches (25 cm) of rainwater on the mountains whose aquifers drain into an artificial lake held in place by the dam, which is about 90 years old.

    Hurricane Maria grew from a category 3 to a category 5 over the course of two days, with wind speed more than doubling from Sunday to Monday. ''BBC'' forecaster Steve Cleaton attributes this to unusually warm ocean surface temperatures.<!--BBC-->

    "No generation has seen a hurricane like this since San Felipe II in 1928," Governor of Puerto Rico {{w|Ricardo Rosselló}} told the press on Tuesday<!--Tuesday-->. "This is an unprecedented atmospheric system."

    Because the center of Hurricane Irma passed north of Puerto Rico, sparing it from extreme damage, residents of harder-hit islands such as {{w|Saint Thomas (island)|Saint Thomas}} fled there to escape looting and other problems and now find another storm on the way.<!--CNN--> The governor of Puerto Rico advised people to seek shelter and that 500 facilities are ready to host as many as 100,000 people and that the United States [[FEMA|Federal Emergency Management Agency]] was on hand restore power from the expected blackouts.

    "You have to evacuate. Otherwise, you're going to die," Puerto Rico's public safety commissioner, Hector Pesquera, told the public as the storm approached. "I don't know how to make this any clearer."<!--BBC-->

    Maria has killed at least 30 people, including 13<!--CBS--> in Puerto Rico. It also hit the [[United Kingdom|British]] island of [[Dominica]] and the [[France|French]] territories of [[Martinique]] and {{w|Guadaloupe}}, where at least one person was killed<!--CNN-->, but local officials say that it is too soon to discuss the extent of the damage.<!--BBC-->

    Puerto Rico is a U.S. commonwealth.

  • Equifax data breach involves 100,000 Canadians

    Ottawahitech: Tryb another story


    {{develop}}
    {{date}}

    The Canadian Press reported today that Credit Agency Equifax Canada acknowledged that 100,000 Canadian accounts have been breached when the company’s website was compromised earlier this year. On Sept 7 it was reported that 143 million Americans have been affected by the breach as well as an undisclosed number of Canadians and British citizens. The announcement followed a report on Friday that Canada’s privacy watchdog has started an investigation into the matter.

    The data breach has come to public attention only recently even though it happened in earlier this year. The breach happened when the Apache Struts servers which Equifax uses to store information was apparently not patched with security updates for some months allowing hackers to take advantage of the vulnerability. The data was unsecured between May 13 and July 30th this year. The breach only affected data stored in the United States. Equifax itself was unaware the breach happened until July 29.

    The announcement today was made by Equifax Canada president, Lisa Nelson. Nelson apologized to Canadian consumers whose data was breached and stated that Equifax was unable to provide information until its own investigation is completed. Affected Canadians will receive instructions via mail from Equifax Canada. They will also receive the same benefits their American counterparts received at the beginning of this month. Even though the breach only affected data stored in the United States, Canadians without a social security number were excluded from Equfax’s offer to provide free access to files for year.

  • Football: German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer sidelined until 2018 after leg injury

    Acagastya: iwl


    {{date|September 21, 2017}}{{football}}
    On Tuesday, [[Germany|German]] football club [[Bayern Munich]] announced {{W|Manuel Neuer}}, their goalkeeper and captain, had surgery on his left foot and is expected to miss footballing action <!-- just to see if this word is acceptable -->for the rest of the year. The club announced it via their website.

    31-year-old Neuer suffered injury from Monday's training for their match against {{W|Schalke 04}}. His {{W|hairline fracture}} of the {{W|metatarsal}} of his left foot was treated on Tuesday by Doctor Ulrich Stöckle in {{W|Tübingen}}.

    Bayern Munich AG's CEO {{W|Karl-Heinz Rummenigge}} said, {{translated quote|de|German language|Dass Manuel Neuer sich erneut eine Verletzung zugezogen hat, tut uns wahnsinnig leid für ihn. Die Operation ist optimal verlaufen und das ist jetzt das Wichtigste. Wir sehen jetzt gemeinsam mit unserem Kapitän nach vorne. Manuel wird uns im Januar in alter Stärke wieder zur Verfügung stehen.|Manuel Neuer has sustained another injury and we're incredibly sorry for him. The operation went perfectly, whch is the most important thing for now. We and our captain are now looking to the future. Manuel will be back to his previous best and available to us again in January.}}

    Former {{W|VfB Stuttgart|Stuttgart}} goalie {{W|Sven Ulreich}}, who played only twelve games since joining Bayern in 2015 until Monday, <!-- FCB S04 is going on, atm --> is likely to fill Neuer's place until Neuer returns. Baryern faces {{W|Celtic FC|Celtic}} as well as [[Paris Saint Germain|Paris-Saint Germain]] in the group stage of [[UEFA Champions League]]. [[FC Barcelona]]'s shotstopper {{w|Marc-André ter Stegen}} is expected to guard the German nets for the upcoming {{w|FIFA World Cup}} qualifiers for next year's tournament in [[Russia]]. <!-- not in the sources, but has been discussed in Isco's article (a recent article) -->

    Neuer suffered a toe injury in March, and a fracture after the second leg of UEFA Champions League quarter-final against [[Real Madrid]] in April. Neuer recovered from the original fracture from April, and joined the team late last month. His club and national teammates including {{w|Robert Lewandowski}}, {{w|Thomas Müller}}, {{w| Franck Ribéry}}, {{w|Jerome Boateng}}, {{w|Mario Götze}}, and {{w|Toni Kroos}} wished him a speedy recovery via Twitter.

  • Football: Carvajal signs contract extension with Real Madrid

    Acagastya: Iwl and cat


    {{date|September 18, 2017}}{{infobox|real Madrid}}
    Today<!--On Monday-->, [[Spain|Spanish]] defender {{w|Dani Carvajal}} signed a contract extension with Spanish [[Madrid|capital]] club [[Real Madrid]], the club announced via their official website. The new contract runs until June 2022.

    Now-25-year-old Carvajal joined ''Los Blancos'' from German club {{w|Bayer Leverkusen}} in summer 2013. Since then the Spanish international has won eleven titles, including three [[UEFA Champions League]] titles, three {{w|UEFA Super Cups}}, two {{w|FIFA Club World Cup}}s and one each of [[LaLiga]] trophy, {{w|Supercopa de España}}, and {{w|Copa del Rey}}. Carvajal graduated from Real Madrid's academy, and since joining Real Madrid's first team, the Spanish right-back has played more than 160 official games for Madrid, scoring four, and assisting 24, goals in total.

    After signing the contract, the Spaniard said, {{translated quote|es|Spanish language|Estoy muy agradecido al club. No puedo estar más feliz. Es otro gran día para enmarcar por prolongar mi contrato con el club de mi vida, el que me ha visto crecer. He tenido la suerte de ganar todos los títulos con el Real Madrid y estoy deseando volverlos a ganar de nuevo|I'm very grateful to the club. I couldn't be happier, it's another important day to remember in my life after extending my contract with the club that means the world to me, the club that has seen me grow. I've been fortunate to win every title with Real Madrid and I'm looking forward to winning them again}}.

    Per the previous contract, Carvajal was tied to Real Madrid until June 2020. Last week, Real Madrid announced Brazilian full back {{w|Marcelo Vieira|Marcelo}} and Spanish midfielder {{w|Isco}} signed contract extensions until June 2022. They join other Real Madrid players including German midfielder {{w|Toni Kroos}} and {{w|Wales|Welsh}} midfielder [[Gareth Bale]] whose contracts run until June 2022. Kroos and Bale signed contract extensions last year. Madrid announced agreement to contract extension with Carvajal yesterday.

    {{date|September 19, 2017}}
    {{Economy and business}}

    {{w|Ellen Pao}}'s new book, ''Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change'', was released on Tuesday. ''Reset'' is the story of what happened before, at, and after she filed a {{w|Pao v. Kleiner Perkins|workplace gender discrimination lawsuit}} against an employer. The book is short-listed for the 2017 {{w|Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award}}.

    The landmark court case filed in 2012 was heard before a jury in 2015 in a trial that lasted 5 weeks. The trial was covered daily by many reporters, and followed by people around the world. Pao did not prevail in court, but her story resonated with others and encouraged them to stand up for their rights. It started a global conversation about sexism in tech industry where women and minorities still form a small percentage of workers. "The culture, I began to realize, is designed to keep out people who aren’t white men," said Pao.

    ''Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change'' explains why Pao turned down the settlement offered to her and chose to tell her story in a public trial in spite of enormous monetry and emotional costs. "I believed I had an obligation to speak out about what I’d seen as one of the few women and people of color in that world," said Pao.

    {{w|Carlos Muñoz Portal}}, 37, a location scout for the ''{{w|Netflix}}'' original series ''{{w|Narcos (TV series)|Narcos}}'', was found shot to death in his vehicle near {{w|Temascalapa}} in [[Mexico]] this past Monday.

    One of Portal's friends told ''El País'' he had been scouting locations for the fourth season of ''Narcos'' near the state of {{w|State of Hidalgo|Hidalgo}}, which has one of the highest murder rates in the country.

    The police say there are no witnesses because the body was found in a remote area. A spokesperson told the public, "We do not know if he was in Hidalgo and from there they followed him or if he was in the state of Mexico and tried to flee towards Hidalgo."

    Netflix issued the following statement to the public: "We are aware of the passing of Carlos Munoz Portal, a well-respected scout, and send our condolences to his family. The facts surrounding his death are still unknown as authorities continue to investigate."

    Previous seasons of ''Narcos'' were set in [[Colombia]], but the fourth season is rumored to focus on the {{w|Juárez cartel}}, which operates in Mexico. Increasing violence in the country has caused many studios to move or cancel shoots.

    Portal had also worked on several films, including the ''{{w|The Fast and the Furious}}'' movies, ''{{w|Apocalypto}}'', ''{{w|Man on Fire (2004 film)|Man on Fire}}'', and the {{w|James Bond}} film ''{{w|Spectre (2015 film)|Spectre}}''.

  • Football: Roy Hodgson pens two-year contract; becomes seventh permanent manager in six years

    Acagastya: iwl


    {{date|September 15, 2017}}{{football}}
    On Tuesday, former manager of [[England]]'s [[soccer|football]] team {{W|Roy Hodgson}} signed a two-year contract with [[London]]-based football club {{W|Crystal Palace FC|Crystal Palace}}, the club announced via their official website.

    70-year-old Hodgson has about forty years as a football manager, and has managed fifteen clubs, and four countries' national teams. He has managed four {{W|Premier League}} clubs &mdash; {{W|Blackburn Rovers}}, {{W|Fulham FC}}, [[Liverpool F.C.|Liverpool]] and {{W|West Bromwich}}, having 34.72&nbsp;% win rate in Premier League. In 2011, he helped West Bromwich avoid relegation, and a year earlier, he helped Fulham to reach the final of the {{W|UEFA Europa League}}. Hodgson went on to manage {{w|England national football team|England}}. Under his management, ''The Three Lions'' reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Euro 2012. In 2014's FIFA World Cup, England were eliminated in the group stage, and last year, following 2&ndash;1 defeat against [[Iceland]] in [[UEFA Euro 2016|Euro 2016]], Roy Hodgson announced resignation from the post. Hodgson has won seven [[Sweden|Swedish]] league titles, two Swedish cups, and one league title each in [[Switzerland]] and [[Denmark]].

    After penning the deal, Hodgson said, "This is very much the club of my boyhood and I remember in my youth watching the club from the terraces at the Holmesdale Road end which gave me such fond memories. In those days I had dreams of playing for the team, then as a coach you think about coaching the team and a lot has happened in between times." Regarding the poor start of the season, Hodgson said, "I don't honestly believe that there is necessarily a lot that needs to be done. You can always get off to a bad start, what we've got to remember is our fate will be decided after 38 games, not four."

    Hodgson's predecessor {{W|Frank de Boer}}'s three-year contract was terminated the day before Hodgson's hiring, after his fourth consecutive defeat in the English Premier League. Crystal Palace was yet to score a goal, and they were nineteenth in the league table. Hodgson is now the oldest permanent manager in the Premier League. He is also the seventh manager of Crystal Palace in the past six years.

    Hodgson's first match as Crystal Palace's manager is to be an away match against {{w|Southampton FC}}, scheduled for tomorrow.

    {{France}}
    A police officer has shot and killed his wife and two of their children at the train station in the [[France|French]] city of {{w|Noyon}} in the department of {{w|Oise (departement)|Oise}}, the local {{w|anchor=France|prosecutor}} said, after the wife had informed the officer of her intention to separate from him. Their sons were aged three and five; a third child, twin to the five year old victim, survived the attack and is in the care of child services. The killings took place around 11:30 local time (0930 {{w|UTC}}) on Sunday.

    The wife, born in 1983, called the ''gendarmes'' (police) in the morning, and they arrived to find her explaining to their five children about the domestic argument which had escalated. The husband returned while the police were present, and they reported he seemed calm and did not interfere with the children being moved to a neighbor's home, so they departed. The woman reportedly chose to leave her house when her husband was not there, and headed to the station, where the husband awaited them armed.

    After assassinating his family, the police officer committed suicide. The wife's family lived in {{w|Guiscard}}, near Noyon. The station at Noyon was closed after the incident. Late on Sunday, the police were searching for a witness who escaped after observing the events.

  • Liberals gain seats in Moscow, nationalists blame Sobyanin

    Pi zero: backing off on this one


    {{tasks|src|npov|re-review}}{{date|September 13, 2017}}
    {{Russia}}[[Image:Elections in Moscow (2017-09-10) 27.jpg|thumb|left|Sunday's election at Moscow polling station 2326. {{image|[[Commons:User:DonSimon|DonSimon]]}}]]
    On Sunday, municipal council elections took place in [[Moscow]], [[Russia]]. This time, the city authorities conspicuously did not remind the public that elections were scheduled. There was unusually low turnout; the chairman of the Moscow electoral commission reported on Monday that about 15% of the electorate in Moscow voted.

    Vote counting indicated some change in political proclivities of Muscovites, the Moscow electoral commission chairman remarked. Russian opposition organized much activity related to Moscow elections – agitation in favor of its candidates, and also observing on the polling stations. But these elections in Moscow saw also a record number of {{w|absentee ballot}}s, a technique prone to fraud. Russian Wikinews also reported some obstruction against journalists.

    [[Image:Elections in Moscow (2017-09-10) 15.jpg|thumb|left|300px|Sunday's election at Moscow polling station 768. {{image|[[Commons:User:DonSimon|DonSimon]]}}]]
    The {{w|Yabloko}} party, a social-liberal party with the long-time support in Moscow, claims success and obtaining majority in six districts. {{w|Dmitry Gudkov}}, a prominent opposition activist from Moscow, manages an Internet site where compilation of vote-counting reports seemingly confirms this.

    From the other end, Russian nationalist politicians (the {{w|Communist Party of the Russian Federation|Communists}} included) detract liberals as the "pro-Western opposition". Some of the nationalists blame the city authorities (both executive and electoral) for the low turnout and the liberals' success. The regional Communist head blames specifically the mayor {{w|Sergey Sobyanin}} (of the ruling United Russia party) for ensuing victory for "utterly pro-Western" candidates. Likewise, the {{w|LDPR}} (far right) leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky lamented late on the election day that authorities engineered "an election without voters" in Moscow. LDPR admits defeat in Moscow and accuses the liberals of vote buying. Political analysts criticize the Moscow executive for arranging fests and other events that allegedly distracted potential voters.

    While in some districts liberals won (using the brand “united democrats”), and in other a notable Communist presence remained, parts of the city strongly voted for the {{w|United Russia}}. This promises very diverse composition of the municipal councils across {{w|Administrative divisions of Moscow|the districts of Moscow}}.

    Importance of these elections for the politics of Moscow is augmented by the "municipal filter" to be used on the {{w|Mayor of Moscow|mayor}}'s election, scheduled for 2018. Namely, any mayor candidate will have to seek endorsement from at least 110 municipal representatives covering 109 districts of 125. It's unlikely that the Russian opposition, even liberals and Communists combined, will obtain a representative in each of so many districts.

    Most (if not all) territorial electoral commissions already produced official results, approving the election. Note that the Russian law on elections of the municipal (a.k.a. ''self-government'') councils provides many pretexts to invalidate the votes.

  • Football: Crystal Palace sacks de Boer in 77 days as manager

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Football: Crystal Palace sacks de Boer after 77 days as manager": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|September 14, 2017}}{{football}}
    On Monday, [[London]]-based [[Football (soccer)|football]] club [[Crystal Palace F.C.|Crystal Palace]] sacked {{W|Frank de Boer}} as manager. de Boer was appointed at the English club less than three months ago.

    Crystal Palace is currently nineteenth in the {{W|Premier League}} table. de Boer had signed a three-year contract with Crystal Palace on June 26, but his team lost all four Premier League matches played so far. Crystal Palace is yet to score a goal in a Premier League match, this season. de Boer's only victory with the London club came against {{W|Ipswich Town}} in the {{W|EFL Cup}}. de Boer succeeded former England's manager {{W|Sam Allardyce}} at Crystal Palace, who helped the club avoid relegation and finish fourteenth. Allardyce joined Crystal Palace after he was sacked from England's manager ten weeks after penning a two-year contract.

    In the official statement on the club's website, Crystal Palace said, "Crystal Palace Football Club have this morning parted company with Frank de Boer. We would like to thank Frank for his dedication and hard work during his time at the club. A new manager will be appointed in due course and we wish Frank the very best of luck for the future."

    In November, de Boer was sacked as the head coach of Italian club [[Internazionale]] after the club lost seven of fourteen matches. His tenure at the {{w|Milan, Italy|Milan}}-based club lasted for just 85 days. Before joining Inter, the Dutchman helped {{w|Ajax Amsterdam}} to win four consecutive {{w|Eredivisie}} &mdash; Dutch League titles.

    Former England manager {{w|Roy Hodgson}} was immediately favoured for the vacated spot. Crystal Palace had six permanent managers in the last six years. de Boer had the fewest matches in a management tenure of an English club &mdash; four Premier League matches, and five in total. de Boer's last match for Crystal Palace ended in a 1&ndash;0 defeat against Burnley.

  • Major earthquake leaves dozens dead in Mexico

    On Thursday afternoon, President of [[Mexico]] [[Enrique Peña Nieto]] received a phone call from his [[United States]] counterpart, [[Donald Trump]], in which Trump offered condolences for the recent earthquake and hurricane that killed 96 people the previous week, claiming that he would have called sooner had Peña Nieto not been in an area with bad cell phone service. Trump had received some criticism for not making such a call earlier.<!--LATimes 14 and WPost-->

    Trump [[Twitter|tweeted]], "Spoke to President of Mexico to give condolences on terrible earthquake. Unable to reach for 3 days b/c of his cell phone reception at site."<!--LATimes 14-->

    This drew such responses as "The US president: a man who is so resourceless that a bad cellphone signal renders him unable to communicate. WEAK!" from Twittergoer Carlos Bravo Regidor.<!--WPost-->

    -->
    Peña Nieto had indeed visited parts of Mexico in which the infrastructure had been badly damaged by the 8.1 earthquake off Mexico's southern coast and by the category 1 hurricane that struck two days later, but he also spent a great deal of time in the capital. He received condolence calls from many US mayors and other public officials, including Governor of [[Texas]] {{w|Greg Abbot}}, who said he would "stand with Mexico and offer whatever aid and assistance we can to help them recover after this disaster."<!--LATimes-->

    On Thursday September 7, an earthquake scoring 8.1 on the Richter Scale struck southern Mexico, {{w|State of Oaxaca|Oaxaca}}, {{w|State of Tabasco|Tabasco}} and {{w|Chiapas}} in southern Mexico, as well as parts of [[Guatemala]] and [[Honduras]], causing damage as far as [[Mexico City]] and {{w|Guatemala City}}, with a death toll approaching triple digits. The epicenter was 74 miles (120 km) from the coast, in the Pacific Ocean. It was accompanied by a 1 meter {{w|seismic sea wave}}. According to the {{w|US Geological Survey}}, the earthquake was unusually shallow, which also makes it more intense on the surface.<!--CNN--> About 1.85 million residences lost electricity. Many of the buildings in the city of {{w|Oaxaca, Oaxaca|Oaxaca}} collapsed, including a hospital.

    "We have experienced earthquakes before, but not like this. It was so intense," Gonzalo Segundo of Chiapas told ''CNN''. "We are alive, that's the important thing."

    Two days later, {{w|Hurricane Katia}}, then a category 1 hurricane, made landfall on the Gulf Coast. Although it was quickly downgraded to a tropical storm, it remained strong enough to cause a mudslide that killed two people in the city of {{w|Xalapa}} on Saturday.<!--CNN 12-->

    The epicenter of the quake was south of the Tehuantepec gap in the {{w|subduction zone}} between the North American and Pacific {{w|tectonic plates}}. According to geophysicist Vlad Manea of the {{w|National Autonomous University of Mexico}}, this quake and its over 1000 {{w|aftershocks}} may have released enough pressure to close the Tehuantepec gap, making the region much more stable going forward, but other scientists, such as Joann Stock of the {{w|California Institute of Technology}} say future quakes might be worse, not milder.<!--Science-->

    In 1985, an 8.0 earthquake on the much better-studied Guerrero gap<!--Science--> killed 9,500 in Mexico City. Since then, the capital has seen construction of many earthquake-resistant buildings, but coastal cities like Oaxaca have not.<!--AlJ--> Last week's was the strongest to hit Mexico in 85 years.<!--CNN and AlJ-->

    In late August, the Mexican government had offered aid to the victims of {{w|Hurricane Harvey}}, Late in August, Mexico offered to send supplies, personnel, radio equipment, mobile kitchens and other disaster relief equipment to the victims of {{w|Hurricane Harvey}}, which struck the US state of Texas. In a statement, the Mexican government said the offer was made "as good neighbors should always do in difficult times."<!--CNN 12 and LATimes--> [[United States]] President [[Donald Trump]], who had recently been complaining about Mexico on [[Twitter]] did not respond, but Governor of Texas {{w|Greg Abbot}} accepted.<!--CNN 12 and LATimes--> The offer was rescinded on Monday both because of the earthquake and hurricane and because Texas is receiving support from elsewhere.

    "Given this situation, the Mexican government will channel all available logistical support to the families and communities that have been affected in Mexico and has informed the Texas and US governments that, unfortunately, on this occasion, it won't be possible to provide the assistance originally offered to Texas in late August in the wake of Hurricane Harvey," reads the official word.<!--CNN 12-->

    Peña Nieto released a statement describing Thursday's conversation with Trump as productive, though he mentioned they also discussed Trump's decision to end his predecessor Barack Obama's DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, program, which allowed undocumented immigrants who had come to the US as children to remain in the country. A large number of DACA participants are Mexican.<!--LATimes 14--> Trump and the US Congress have begun negotiations for a permanent arrangement for these immigrants, and there are currently four formal bills under discussion.<!--CNN 15-->

  • Fifteen states sue United States President Donald Trump for cancelling program for undocumented immigrant minors

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Fifteen states sue United States President Donald Trump for cancelling program for undocumented immigrant minors": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [...


    {{United States}}
    {{date|September 9, 2017}} <!-- substitutes the date automatically; you don't need to modify the template -->

    On Wednesday, the {{w|attorney general|attorneys general}} of fifteen [[U.S.]] states filed a lawsuit against United States President [[Donald Trump]] for ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, or DACA, which placed a moratorium on the deportation of [[immigration|undocumented immigrants]] who had come to the U.S. while they were still minors. They argue that Trump's decision to resume deportation was based on racism and therefore illegal and that deporting DACA beneficiaries would harm the economies of their respective states.<!--NYMag-->

    The suit reads, in part: "Ending DACA, whose participants are mostly of [[Mexico|Mexican]] origin, is a culmination of President Trump's oft-stated commitments &mdash; whether personally held, stated to appease some portion of his constituency, or some combination thereof &mdash; to punish and disparage people with Mexican roots."<!--NYMag--> The greatest number of DACA beneficiaries are from Mexico, and the next most common countries of birth are [[El Salvador]], [[Guatemala]], and [[Honduras]]<!--CNN-->.

    According to [[New York]] Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman, his state is home to 42,000 DACA participants, also called dreamers, after the DREAM Act, a proposed law that would have made something similar to the DACA program a law rather than an executive policy. "Dreamers play by the rules. Dreamers work hard. Dreamers pay taxes. For most of them, America is the only home they've ever known. And they deserve to stay here," he said. According to the lawsuit, 50 DACA participants are students at {{w|Harvard University}},<!--Chicago--> one the most prestigious schools in the U.S.

    At the U.S. government's last count, the DACA program covered 787,580 people. It allowed undocumented immigrants who had come to the U.S. under the age of 16 and were no older than 30 in 2012 to apply for temporary federal permits for legal residency, which expire after two years. These in turn allow them to file for work permits and drivers' licenses.<!--CNN--> It made it much easier for them to attend four-year colleges and for the government to collect income tax. The Trump administration describes this as a phasing out rather than an immediate cancellation. Some DACA participants will be allowed to renew their permits, but only until October<!--CNN--> and only for participants whose existing permits would expire by next March<!--Chicago-->.

    President Trump invited [[U.S. Congress|Congress]] to take action on the dream issue: "We will resolve the DACA issue with heart and compassion &mdash; but through the lawful Democratic process &mdash; while at the same time ensuring that any immigration reform we adopt provides enduring benefits for the American citizens we were elected to serve," President Trump told the press on Tuesday. "We must also have heart and compassion for unemployed, struggling, and forgotten Americans." Under the new Trump policy, if Congress does not pass a law establishing a program for DACA participants, 300,000 would lose legal status next year.<!--CNN-->

    [[Washington]] State Attorney General Bob Ferguson, accompanied by now-adult DACA recipients who work for the state legislature, announced to the press, "It's outrageous, it's not right[...] As attorney general for the state of Washington, I have a hammer, it's the law." Ferguson also sued Donald Trump earlier this year over a travel ban prohibiting people from seven [[Muslim]]-majority countries from entering the United States.<!--Chiacago-->

    DACA was not a law but rather an executive policy established by Trump's predecessor, [[Barack Obama]]<!--CNN-->. The U.S. Constitution gives the legislative branch of the government, Congress, the duty of establishing laws but the executive branch, headed by the President, the duty of enforcing them. The DACA program was examined by lawyers from the U.S. Department of Justice in 2014, and they determined then-President Barack Obama did have the authority to decline to enforce existing immigration laws in this way.<!--Chicago-->

    The suit was filed by attorneys general from [[North Carolina]], [[Hawaii]], [[Washington]], New York, [[Illinois]], [[Iowa]], [[Oregon]], [[New Mexico]], [[Massachusetts]], [[Connecticut]], [[Delaware]], [[Pennsylvania]], [[Virginia]], [[Vermont]], and [[Rhode Island]] and the country's capital, [[Washington DC|Washington D.C.]], all of whom are [[US Democratic Party|Democrats]]. The attorney general of [[California]], home to one out of four DACA participants, stated intent through a spokesperson to file a separate lawsuit.<!--Chicago-->

    President {{w|Donald Trump}} announced this morning on Twitter that he's going end {{w|Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals|DACA}}, the immigration policy which was founded in June 2012 by president {{w|Barack Obama}} and by which illegal immigrants are prevented from deportation if they were of minor age when they entered the US. Attorney General {{w|Jeff Sessions}} formally announced the abolition of DACA in a letter. According to Sessions, DACA is "was implemented unilaterally, to great controversy and legal concern" and “open-ended circumvention of immigration laws” .

    The DACA policy will fully expire on March 5, 2018. The Congress has been given half a year to come up with an alternative legislation. New applications for protection from undocumented immigrants on basis of DACA will no longer be accepted by the U.S. Government from now on. At the moment, about 800,000 people in the US profit from DACA.

    Ken Haas of New Britain, Conn. is one of the local Commissioners of Conservation, but his civic work does not stop there. When comes to the community he loves, Commissioner Haas is an active participant.

    In the past, Commissioner Haas has been vocal about finding [http://nbcityjournal.com/archives/14099 Creative Ways to Increase Budget Funding]. Including the development of a municipal power plant stating, "...Under CGS § 7-213 et seq, any town, city or borough may build, buy, lease, or establish an electric system. The system can include power plants and distribution facilities for the municipality’s own use and the use of its inhabitants. Even a solar powered plant.” Haas also stated that, “In terms of financing, a municipality that establishes a utility or that reconstructs, extends, or enlarges its facilities may finance them by issuing revenue bonds with a term of up to 30 years. It can also issue temporary notes that can be backed by the municipality’s taxing authority as well as other revenue sources, but I’m very curious to know if Federal and State bond money can be used in lieu of New Britain’s municipal bonding and tax authority.”

    As of now Commissioner Haas is assisting in the development of a New Britain Pride Group, which is [http://nbcityjournal.com/archives/14520 Organizing LGBT Events] in New Britain for next June which is Gay Pride Month. Among the events being planned are a proclamation and a Gay Pride Parade.

    “I was in New York Pride in June and it popped into my head that we in New Britain don’t have anything,” said John Board, who has been organizing the event along Kenneth Haas. “New Britain is the right City at the right time to host such an event.”

    New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart appointed Board, 23, to lead the parade, which will take place in June of 2018, during Gay Pride Month.

    Events, such as Gay Pride Parades are held throughout the world during this month.

    Board said everyone will be invited to take part in New Britain.

    The preliminary plan has the parade marching the traditional route from Broad Street to Main Street next June. It will be built around already existing events in June, such as the Rose Garden Festival, so it does not interfere.

    “It’s all in the infancy,” he said. “In the next 8 or 9 months we will pull it all together.”

  • Frankfurt defuses World War II-era bomb, evacuates 60,000

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Frankfurt defuses World War II-era bomb, evacuates 60,000": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|September 4, 2017}}
    {{Germany}}
    Experts in {{w|Frankfurt}}, {{w|Germany}} defused a {{w|World War II}}-era bomb yesterday<!--on Sunday-->, after more than 60,000 people, the most since World War II, evacuated from the area.

    The HC 4000 {{w|blockbuster bomb}}, dropped by the {{w|United Kingdom}}'s {{w|Royal Air Force}}, was discovered days ago near the {{w|Goethe University Frankfurt}} campus in a construction site. Fire chiefs warned its reportedly 1.4 tons of explosives could have destroyed an entire city block.

    Residents of the {{w|Westend (Frankfurt am Main)|Westend}} neighborhood, including those of two nearby hospitals, were asked to evacuate by 8 a.m. local time (0600 {{w|UTC}}), though the bomb removal process only began around 2:30 p.m., as the evacuation drew on. Just after 8 a.m., Markus Röck, a spokesman for the Frankfurt fire brigade, said: "The situation is relaxed which is a good sign and everything so far is going according to plan. We will now assess if everybody has left voluntarily and go from house to house and remove people if necessary."

    About 1,100 workers assisted with the evacuation, according to the fire brigade, and helicopters and heat-detection technology were used to check everyone within 1.5 {{w|kilometre|kilometers}}, about 1 {{w|mile}}, had left. A convention center and concert hall opened to house people, and at museums and {{w|Frankfurt Airport|the airport}}, other activities were offered for free.

    When the area near the bomb was evaluated, other parts of the city became more populated. Peter Cachola Schmal, director of the {{w|German Architecture Museum}}, remarked, "It's a different atmosphere here today, because people are settling for a longer time[...] People are coming here to sit with their laptop and work, for example, or read the newspaper for hours."

    Fire brigade director Reinhard Ries said, "the scale of this bomb is overwhelming. I have never seen anything like it."

    Likely thousands of unexploded bombs from the era remain across Germany, and reportedly eleven bomb defusal technicians have been killed there since 2000. Devices may become more unstable as time wears on and their fuses age.

    {{Tunisia}}
    A {{w|Roman Empire|Roman}} city that was destroyed over 1,600 years ago by a [[tsunami]] has been found by archaeologists off the Northeastern coast of [[Tunisia]].

    Due to favorable weather, scientists found the remains of Neapolis (now {{w|Nabeul}} in Tunisia) after a 7-year long search. Within the "sunken city", they discovered around 100 tanks of {{w|garum}}, a fermented fish condiment.

    "It's a major discovery," says Mounir Fantar, head of the mission. It "has allowed us to establish with certainty that Neapolis was a major center for the manufacture of garum and salt fish, probably the largest center in the Roman world."

    They have also shown that Neapolis was submerged in the {{w|365 Crete earthquake|AD 365 earthquake}} that damaged other coastal Mediterranean cities. Little was known about the city, because Neapolis sided with {{w|Carthage}} in the {{w|Third Punic War}}, and was punished once it fell under under Roman control.

  • North Korea tests sixth nuclear bomb

    Quinton Feldberg: accidental click

    {{tasks|news|re-review}}{{date|September 3, 2017}}{{North Korea nuclear program}}
    On Sunday, {{w|North Korea}} conducted its sixth and the most powerful underground {{w|nuclear test}} until now. A video was released several hours later by North Korea, announcing that it could load the bomb onto an {{w|intercontinental ballistic missile}} (ICBM). International authorities have condemned the country's actions, and called for it to cease its nuclear program.
    [[File:Punggye-ri map.jpg|thumb|left|250px|Map showing world capitals and the {{w|Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site}}, where the bomb was detonated{{image|[https://www.voanews.com/a/north-korea-denounces-united-states-naval-armada-approaches/3811235.html VOA News]}}]]
    On North Korean state television, the regime announced that the test was a "complete success" ordered by {{w|Kim Jong-un}}. Footage was also made public of what North Korea claims was a {{w|hydrogen bomb}} being loaded onto an ICBM.

    Exactly what type of bomb was used has not been independently confirmed, though North Korea has said that its projectiles can now reach the {{w|United States}} mainland carrying a nuclear warhead.

    The blast was detected at 0336 UTC by the {{w|United States Geological Survey|U.S. Geological Survey}}, who gave the tremors a Richter magnitude rating of 6.3, up to ten times stronger than North Korea's {{w|September 2016 North Korean nuclear test|previous test}}.

    U.S. President {{w|Donald Trump}} responded on {{w|Twitter}} to North Korea's actions, and called upon {{w|China}} and {{w|South Korea}} to act in defense.

    "North Korea is a {{w|rogue state|rogue nation}} which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success," Trump wrote on Twitter. When asked at a press conference of the possibility of the U.S. attacking North Korea, Trump responded "we'll see." He also criticized South Korea's actions, writing that "South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work".

    {{w|James Mattis}}, the U.S. Secretary of Defense, said that they would create "a massive military response" to any North Korean threat against the U.S. or its allies.

    China's foreign ministry released an online statement that North Korea's capital {{w|Pyongyang}} "has ignored the international community's widespread opposition, again carrying out a nuclear test. China's government expresses resolute opposition and strong condemnation toward this". The Chinese Nuclear Safety Administration began monitoring for radiation along its No Korean border.

    Just after sunrise on Sunday (1:21 UTC)<!--NPR says 9:21 p.m. Saturday EDT-->, [[NASA]] astronaut and biochemist {{w|Peggy Whitson}}, 57, returned to Earth in [[Kazakhstan]], in a {{w|Soyuz capsule}}, after a 288-day mission in the [[International Space Station]] (ISS), bringing her lifetime total days in space to 665, the most for any [[U.S.]] astronaut, most for any female astronaut internationally, and eighth overall.<!--AP-->
    [[File:Peggy Whitson 2016.jpg|thumb|left|Whitson at a press conference in 2016. {{Image source|NASA and James Blair}}]]
    Whitson was greeted with flowers, a pair of sunglasses and a medical team. All three arriving on the capsule, Whitson, fellow top-ten endurance astronaut Fyodor Yurchikhin, and NASA astronaut Jack Fischer, were carried from the capsule in chairs<!--AP--> because they were no longer used to Earth's gravity. Because of {{w|Hurricane Harvey}}, which flooded the {{w|Johnson Space Center}} and much of the rest of [[Texas]] the previous week<!--CNN-->, NASA was unable to send a plane to pick them up at their landing site. Instead the [[European Space Agency]] transported all three to {{w|Cologne, Germany|Cologne}}, [[Germany]].

    The astronaut left in command of the ISS, Randy Bresnik, had left them with, "We are in your debt for the supreme dedication that you guys have to the human mission of exploration," and called Whitson in particular an "American space ninja."

    Whitson's colleagues on the ground said she worked at great speed, continually seeking and performing new experiments.<!--AP--> Her team completed work on plant physiology, chemotherapy drugs, and the effects of microgravity on stem cells and human eyes.<!--NPR-->
    [[File:ISS-05 Peggy Whitson works near the Microgravity Science Glovebox.jpg|thumb|right|Whitson aboard the ISS in 2002.{{Image source|NASA}}]]

    Whitson's home, in [[Houston]], was not destroyed by Hurricane Harvey, though NASA's staff there has experienced some hardship, with many sleeping at Mission Control. Whitson commented, "Any trepidations I might have about returning in the aftermath of a hurricane are entirely eclipsed by all those folks keeping our mission going."<!--NPR-->

    According to the [[Associated Press]], Whitson has broken a few other records: She is the oldest woman to serve in space and the most experienced female spacewalker, at ten spacewalks. She is also the first woman to have commanded the ISS more than once.<!--NPR-->

  • Tim Curry, TV premiere screenings, cosplay feature at Fan Expo Canada

    Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Tim Curry, TV premiere screenings, cosplay feature at Fan Expo Canada": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


    {{date|September 6, 2017}}{{Canada}}

    [[Toronto]] pop culture convention [[Fan Expo Canada]] has wrapped for another year. It ran from Thursday<!--, August 30--> to Sunday<!--, September 3, 2017-->. Major panels included {{w|Tim Curry}} and the cast of ''{{w|Rocky Horror Picture Show}}'', ''{{w|Beauty and the Beast (1991 film)|Beauty and the Beast}}'' voices {{w|Robby Benson}} and {{w|Paige O'Hara}}, actors {{w|Kathleen Turner}}, {{w|Richard Dreyfuss}}, {{w|Anthony Daniels}}, {{w|Felicia Day}}, and child leads from ''{{w|Stranger Things}}''. [[Canada|Canadian]] television channel {{w|Space (TV channel)|Space}} hosted a ''{{w|Star Trek: Discovery}}'' panel with seven lead cast members. On the heels of sister event Toronto Comic Con's ''{{w|Degrassi Junior High|Degrassi}}'' reunion event, the lineup included a twentieth anniversary panel with the stars of another Canadian high school television series, ''{{w|Student Bodies}}''.

    Heading into its fourth and final season, attendees got a chance to see the season opener of ''{{w|Star Wars: Rebels}}'' on Saturday, followed by a panel. The event has had a continuing relationship with the series, screening other episodes previously. The second season premiere of the sci-fi series ''{{w|Travelers (TV series)|Travelers}}'' was accompanied by a panel including {{w|Eric McCormack}}. Canadian true-crime drama ''{{w|Bad Blood (TV series)|Bad Blood}}'' had its world premiere. Other debuts included broadcaster {{w|City (TV network)|City}} with the Canadian premiere of ''{{w|Ghosted (TV series)|Ghosted}}'', with {{w|Craig Robinson (actor)|Craig Robinson}} in attendance, {{w|Teletoon}} with the Canadian premiere of ''{{w|Hotel Transylvania: The Series}}'', and {{w|YTV (TV channel)|YTV}} with the new animated series ''{{w|Mysticons}}''.

    Anime fans could watch episodes of their favourite shows, including ''AKB0048'', ''Otaku No Video'', ''Hana Yamata'', ''My Hero Academia'', ''Fairy Tail'', and ''Penguindrum''.

    The book ''Star Wars Made Easy'', targeted to non-fans to get up to speed on the fictional universe's various facts and figures, was ironically launched by DK Canada for a room of fans of the franchise. Author Christian Blauvelt answered questions from the audience on topics like his opinion on Midiclorians — he understands fan contention, but suggested that science and religion can co-exist, like in the real world — quizzed the audience on trivia, and signed copies of his book.

    Some panels were quite ahead of the curve: one on ''Star Wars'' costume and prop building discussed building Porgs figures, despite the film ''{{w|The Last Jedi}}'' not being released to theatres yet.

    [[file:FXC17 Unity and United.jpg|250px|thumb|left|Unity and United, from the York Regional Police. {{image|[[Commons:User:Zanimum|Nicholas Moreau]]}}]]
    {{w|York Regional Police}} were at the event with United and Unity, two brightly lit characters of their own creation. The force received funding in 2014 from the Provincial Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy to create a short film featuring the character United, receiving positive recognition locally. “Our United superhero program is part of our on-going efforts to connect with our community and show police in a different light,” YRP Constable Andy Pattenden told Wikinews. He explains that the officers who developed the project have a background in film-making, and “serve as an opportunity for us to start a conversation with youth and connect with them at a non-traditional level.”

    ''Star Wars'' character {{w|Jabba the Hutt}}, a puppet in the 1983 film ''{{w|Return of the Jedi}}'', was re-created by the {{w|501st Legion}} as an {{w|animatronic}}. The 501st is a fan group that dresses like the series villains for charitable events, particularly those raising funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The new addition to their annual display commanded long lineups throughout the day, from con-goers looking to donate in exchange for a photo-op with the massive, slug-like alien.

    As with most major conventions, cosplayers were numerous, ranging from simple outfits that wouldn't raise an eyebrow if worn from day-to-day, to elaborately-created costumes and giant props. Outfits recognized by Wikinews' reporter ranged from classic characters like the 1960s version of Batgirl and {{w|Oswald the Lucky Rabbit}}, a character created by Walt Disney in 1927, before Mickey, to 2010s characters from creative works like ''{{w|Undertale}}'', ''Disney Descendants'', ''{{w|League of Legends}}'', and ''{{w|Adventure Time}}''. Few characters are too obscure, if they appeal to a fan: the female avatar of “hivemind” character Unity, from a single episode of ''{{w|Rick and Morty}}'', was spotted. One woman “biting” another woman's arm would be cause for concern most places, but at a pop culture convention, it simply means that “Lilo” is re-enacting a scene with “Mertle”, as seen in the film ''{{w|Lilo and Stitch}}''.

    Wikinews talked with Cheryl, the co-host of the weekly video series "Our Didnee Side", who was dressed as Gadget Hackwrench, a mouse from the 1990s television series ''{{w|Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers}}''. Speaking for both of the hosts, she said their passion for Disney has “exploded” since starting the YouTube channel, and that they are both “creators. We can't seem to go a day without making something. We love doing Disney cosplay because it is like a beacon for other people in the fandom to come find us in a sea of other characters.” Conventions like Fan Expo Canada become “a great opportunity to meet like-minded Disney fans, and to possibly escape for the weekend from our 'boring human' lives.”

    [[file:FXC17 Stay Puft.jpg|250px|left|thumb|Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, through Geektropolis website. {{image|[[Commons:User:Zanimum|Nicholas Moreau]]}}]]
    Adrianna Prosser, host of Toronto geek culture community website Geektropolis, spent part of the convention Fan Expo Canada 2017 as the {{w|Stay Puft Marshmallow Man|Stay Puft Marshmallow Man}}. She told Wikinews that "geeking in Toronto is always such a joy, what with amazing {{w|sister=wikt|cosplay}} and passionate fandoms coming together at Fan Expo!" She explained that the site tries to keep the feeling of the event going all year, featuring local creators and “geeky” fans, in an effort to bring the community closer together.

    Party game {{w|Cards Against Humanity}} — intriguingly available under a non-commercial [[Creative Commons|Creative Commons]] license — offered a "Free Apologies from An American" booth, where a representative offered regrets to the largely Canadian visitors. The booth's curtains came into use at least once on Friday, closing when a Trump cosplayer reached the front of the line.

    Ten fire tenders with seventy firemen and ambulances have so far rescued 46 people from the rubble. Rescue workers told the ''[[BBC]]'' all survivors had been helped to safety.

    "There was a massive bang. We couldn't see anything due to the dust and smoke. Once the dust settled, we realised it was a building collapse," Amina Sheikh, who lives in the neighborhood, told the press.<!--AlJ-->

    This is the third building in Mumbai to collapse in the past 30 days. There was another in a suburb, Ghatkopar, on July 17.

    Divya Gopalan of ''[[Al Jazeera]]'' reported that tenants often remain in buildings even after they are declared unsafe for fear that they will be replaced by renovated, prohibitively expensive housing rather than something they can afford.

    Police say the heavy rains that pummeled Mumbai last week could have weakened the building, which is over 100 years old. ''Reuters'', reported the building was declared unsafe in 2011, but, according to India's National Disaster Response Force, about eight families still lived inside.

    {{develop}}Brazilian exchange and clearing house B3 announced it has launched on Monday the equities, corporate bonds, and equities lending markets on its new multi-asset clearing platform, built on Cinnober’s TRADExpress RealTime Clearing system.

    The world’s fifth largest exchange by market capitalization had scheduled the migration of the equities clearing house for phase two of B3’s Post-Trade Integration Project that will consolidate B3’s originally four clearinghouses into one integrated entity. Derivatives and OTC products were the first to launch on the new platform in phase one.

    '''The industry spread news''' integrated clearinghouse allows B3 to better manage risk by analyzing the risk on entire portfolios, compensating when an investor has opposite positions in the same underlying asset across product groups and markets. Phase 1’s total systemic benefit in termsof margin release amounted to around BRL 20 billion as derivatives and OTC products were migrated to the new clearinghouse. B3 estimates that Phase 2’s effect is BRL 21 billion (USD 6,4 billion) of collateral that was returned to the market with complete preservation of the clearinghouse’s safety system.

    Cícero Augusto Vieira Neto, Chief Operating Officer of B3, said: “With that launch, Brazil’s financial and capital markets are obtaining new levels of operating excellence, By integrating the markets in a single clearinghouse, using a real-time clearing solution we’re able to offer more capital efficient post-trade services, improve daily liquidity, and reduce operating costs. With an infrastructure capable of absorbing ever larger volumes, B3 has paved the way for further market growth, and the system’s flexibility lets us respond quickly to the market’s needs.”

    “This is a great milestone in a globally pioneering project. “We’re proud to have this monumental role in B3’s post-trade integration project, bringing so much value to the market. Our real-time, multi-asset technology builds safer markets where the participants are kept informed of risk and margin requirements throughout the day. This gives markets that are more efficient, enabling less collateral to be tied up from investors”, commented Veronica Augustsson, CEO of Cinnober.

    B3 currently handles one million transactions per day on average on its exchange, with peaks of up to three million transactions per day. The new clearing platform has an initial capacity to manage 10 million transactions per day.

    Today, English {{w|Premier League}} football-club {{w|Swansea City A.F.C.|Swansea City}} completed the {{w|loan (sports)|loan}} signing of [[Portugal|Portuguese]] midfielder {{w|Renato Sanches}} from German club [[Bayern Munich]].

    20-year old Sanches won the Golden Boy award last year, but has struggled for form since joining Bayern Munich for £27.5 million from Portuguese side {{w|S.L. Benfica|Benfica}}. He was part of the squad which claimed the {{w|Bundesliga}} title last season but played only 600 minutes for the campaign, amassing a total of 26 appearances.

    Sanches will arrive at Swansea after the international break where he will be re-united with manager {{w|Paul Clement}}, who was previously the assistant manager at Bayern Munich. The club have reportedly paid a fee £8 million to sign him for the season, with the deal not including an option to purchase. The player was previously linked with a move to Italian {{w|Serie A}} trio, [[A.C. Milan]], [[Juventus]] and {{w|A.S. Roma}}, as well as French capital-club [[Paris Saint-Germain]] and England's [[Liverpool FC]].

    Bayern Munich chairman {{w|Karl-Heinz Rummenigge}} expressed his satisfaction at Sanches' loan to Swansea, saying, "We're delighted we've been able to conclude the load deal with Swansea City. Our goal was for Renato to gain regular match practice at club level in a strong league such as the Premier League".
