Pacific Rim nations prepare for UNbacked tsunami preparedness test

Most tsunamis occur in the Pacific Ocean and connected seas, according to the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Three tsunamis have struck that region recently – Samoa in 2009, Chile in 2010 and Japan in 2011.The test scheduled for 9 and 10 November, known as PacWave11, is organized under the aegis of UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission and will be carried out in two phases.In its first phase, the exercise will consist of nine different scenarios to allow each participating country to respond to a regional or local source tsunami based on powerful earthquake events generated off the shores of the Philippines, Vanuatu, Tonga, Ecuador, Central America or Japan’s Ryukyu Islands.Countries engaged in the test will choose one of these scenarios and opt for a region or local event to which they would have to react.In the second phase, which will be carried out simultaneously after receipt of warning messages, the authorities will test all the necessary steps to respond to a warning prior to alerting the public.Simulated warnings will be sent out to national focal points by the Northwest Pacific Tsunami Advisory Centre (Japan), the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (United States) and the West Coast/Alaska Tsunami Warning Center (US).The Commission set up the International Coordination Group for the Tsunami Warning System in the Pacific in 1965, following the major tsunami of 1960 that hit the coast of Chile and claimed close to 5,000 lives.The purpose of the Group is to coordinate the ongoing development and enhancement of the Pacific Tsunami Warning Systems and to promote the establishment of national risk assessments, alert and response programmes. 4 November 2011Some 30 Pacific Rim countries are to take part next week in a United Nations-backed tsunami warning exercise to improve their ability to respond to an alert and enhance regional coordination in the event of a disaster. read more

How Fishing Pros Finally Caught George Perrys Miracle Bass

In late 2009, two men walked into a room somewhere in Japan and found a fisherman hooked up to a polygraph. His name was Manabu Kurita, and he was there to answer some questions. The 32-year-old fishing guide had claimed to have caught a bass that weighed just under 22 pounds, 5 ounces — a weight that would make it co-world-record holder in the all-tackle weight category for largemouth bass, the most hallowed class in all of fishing. The other men in the room were representatives from the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) and, with the polygraph running, they asked Kurita about the precise position of his boat on Japan’s Lake Biwa and the tackle he used to haul in his catch. His answers from the hourlong session evidently passed muster; six months after he hauled the fish in, the catch was certified as the IGFA’s co-world-record holder.The fish Kurita tied is known simply as George Perry’s miracle bass. For almost 80 years, anglers have been chasing that record, and with the help of environmental planners and biologists, they finally equalled it. Or Kurita did. But to understand why it took so long, it’s worth starting at the beginning, on a boat with George Perry, somewhere in rural Georgia.In 1932, Perry, then a 20-year-old farmer playing hooky from the fields, pulled a huge-bellied beast with eyes the size of Ping-Pong balls out of a small oxbow lake in Georgia. He knew his fish was huge, but he had no idea it could be a world record. In fact, there were no official world records at the time. But because he stopped by the post office to weigh it before he took it home for dinner (it took his six-person family two nights to eat the whole fish), there was documentation when he submitted his entry to the big fish contest in Field & Stream later that year. When the magazine started certifying world records two years later, they realized that at 22 pounds, 4 ounces,1Kurita’s fish outweighs Perry’s by almost an ounce, but for fish under 25 pounds, the IGFA rules require fishermen to break a standing record by at least two ounces to take over the top spot. So the two fish are co-record holders. Kurita claims he doesn’t mind sharing, since Perry’s record is what motivated so many anglers in the first place. Perry’s fish far outweighed any other largemouth bass ever caught.For a long time, it looked like Perry’s fish was a unique specimen. For the next half century, no angler got within a pound and a half of his mark. “A lot of us didn’t believe a 22-pound bass could live naturally,” says Jon Storm, the former editor of BassFan.com. “A fish that size was off the map; it wasn’t even part of the cluster.”But in 1980, Raymond Easley caught a 21-pounder in a manmade reservoir near Santa Barbara, Calif., called Lake Casitas. Over the next three decades, as Monte Burke describes in his book “Sowbelly: The Obsessive Quest for the World-Record Largemouth Bass,” modern-day Ahabs fixated on the record, many of them devoting incredible amounts of time and money in monomaniacal pursuit.As the anglers’ mania increased, the sport’s popularity rose. During the 1980s, the fledgling Bassmasters professional tour grew into an ESPN-owned and corporate-branded behemoth.2ESPN owns FiveThirtyEight as well. Winners of its two-day classic — the Super Bowl of bass fishing — won half a million dollars at its peak in 2006. (In 2011, ESPN sold the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society, which owns the tour, but it still televises the event.)And while uniformed pros in hundred-thousand-dollar boats outfitted with the latest fish-catching technology competed against each other in timed events on television, amateurs everywhere headed out to their local lakes to try to haul in a goliath. “Not only is the largemouth easily accessible, the tackle required to catch it is pretty straightforward,” says Jack Vitek, the world records coordinator for the IGFA. “It’s open to all demographics.”Over the next 30 years, every one of the IGFA’s records for largemouth bass — save for the all-tackle one owned by Perry — was rewritten by anglers using all sorts of lines and rods. For a while, it looked like Perry’s record would fall any day. One fish — known as Dottie for the prominent black mark near her gills — weighed close to 22 pounds when she was caught and released in 2003. When she was caught again in 2006, she weighed even more than Perry’s fish — but she wasn’t eligible for the record because Mac Weakley had set his hook in her side, not her mouth.Dottie, along with 15 of those 20 new record fish, was caught in one of just a few reservoirs within a hundred miles of Los Angeles. Something was going on in Southern California, and that something was a potent brew of favorable conditions for super fish.Dottie — along with all the other monster fish caught recently — is a Florida bass, which biologists recognize as a different species from the other largemouth bass that populate Alabama, Louisiana and the rest of the fish’s natural habitat. “The Florida bass is genetically and behaviorally different from the largemouth bass,” said Mike Allen, a professor of fisheries and aquatic sciences at the University of Florida who specializes in bass. And while Florida bass and other largemouth bass usually grow to about the same size, only Florida bass have the potential to get truly huge. (Allen speculates that Perry’s fish was a hybrid, based on its location between the ranges of the Florida bass and the largemouth bass.)Big fish attract more fishermen, which is why fishery managers have introduced Florida largemouths not just to California, but also to lakes all over the world, including Mexico, South Africa and — yes — Japan. The Florida transplants have often found that their new environments offer access to a new, highly caloric food source: rainbow trout. While the two fish do not usually coexist in the same areas, the 12-inch trout stocked in these lakes (also to entice fishermen) have proven to be a perfect food for the mega-bass, which pack on weight far more quickly than they would hunting other prey. Bass introduced into new environments overseas have also found new prey to be good eating — in Lake Biwa, Japan, for example, the bass have taken to gorging themselves on carp.The Southern California environment — newly formed reservoirs in a mild climate — also helped with the record bass growth. Cold-blooded animals don’t have to spend as much energy metabolizing in stable temperatures, and Allen says the sweet spots for the stable-temperature zone are in Southern California and Japan.The role the reservoirs play, though, remains somewhat mysterious. “Lakes go through a natural aging process,” says Allen, who explains that trophy fish usually appear relatively soon after lakes have been formed. Perhaps that explains why far fewer giant bass have been caught in Southern California since the early 2000s.While Lake Biwa, the place Kurita nabbed his record bass, has been around for millions of years, Kurita thinks a change in management practices in Japan led to a window for world-record bass that may now be closing as well. “Old days of Lake Biwa fishing, I could catch a lot, but could not get over 10 pounds,” he said. Then, around 2001, Japanese authorities started to treat bass less as a trophy fish and more as a foreign organism to exterminate, he said. As their numbers dropped, the size of the bass Kurita caught grew — for a time. Since 2010, new extermination strategies, including electrification of spawning bass, has made all sizes of bass harder to find, he says.Fishing records are different from human athletic records. While people will almost surely continue to get bigger, faster and stronger, a record fish requires discovery. After years where a confluence of factors produced a run of huge fish, Perry’s record still stands. Almost everyone I spoke to for this article, though, thinks that there is a record fish still out there. Kurita claims he’s seen a 25-pounder paddling through Lake Biwa. Burke says a few monsters may lurk in the lakes of Cuba, where they have been off-limits to many record-focused bass fishermen for dozens of years. Allen thinks there might be a title contender in Zimbabwe, where recently introduced bass are growing freakishly fat. And in parts of the American South, officials have started aggressive management policies — like draining and repopulating lakes with Florida bass — in an effort to bring the record back home. read more

ASA Welcomes President Obamas Commitment to Trade Infrastructure in State of the

first_imgAs President Barack Obama delivered the first State of the Union address of his second term Tuesday evening, the American Soybean Association (ASA) welcomes the president’s comments on multiple ASA priorities. ASA President Danny Murphy, a soybean farmer from Canton, Miss., releases the following statement on tonight’s address:”As we move into the second month of the 113th Congress and of the Obama Administration, ASA welcomes President Obama’s comments this evening on issues vital to soybean farmers, the larger agriculture community and our nation as a whole.”First on the president’s agenda tonight was our nation’s fiscal situation, and the need to address our collective budgetary responsibilities. Soybean farmers remain committed, along with the entire agriculture community, to bearing our share of the budgetary responsibility, provided that cuts to agricultural programs are proportionate to those programs benefiting other industries. We remind the president that the agriculture community came together to propose more than $23 billion in voluntary cuts within a comprehensive, five-year farm bill, which was passed by the House and Senate Agriculture Committees as well as the full Senate, yet did not see an opportunity for a vote on the House floor.”The president touched multiple times on our nation’s reduced dependence on foreign oil, mentioning specifically that Americans are purchasing less of it today than at any point in the last 20 years. The success of renewable fuels like soy-based biodiesel is part and parcel to that success. More than half of all biodiesel produced in the U.S.—more than a billion gallons worth last year alone—is produced from soy grown by American farmers in communities nationwide.”Fuel, however, is only one part of the formula that keeps our country moving, and the president’s proposed improvements in infrastructure are vital to soybean farmers who grow our nation’s largest and most valuable agricultural export commodity. As part of his “Fix-It-First” program, President Obama proposed much-needed repairs to our transportation infrastructure, including the ports we need to ship our soybeans to our trading partners around the world. We would encourage the president to remember, however, that our waterways infrastructure including our locks and dams on the Mississippi, Ohio and Missouri Rivers are also in critical need of repairs, while the channel depth issues on the Mississippi River continue to threaten that waterway’s continued viability as a commercial route. These waterways serve as a vital artery for the movement of soybeans and other essential commodities, and investments in maintaining that infrastructure have immediate benefits in creating jobs and restoring market confidence, and the long-term benefits of maintaining and improving global economic competitiveness of soybeans and other major U.S. commodities and products.”Also encouraging are President Obama’s comments on growing our valuable trade relationships. ASA applauds the president’s commitment to completing negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). This is a key priority for American soybean farmers, who ship their product to many of the countries in the TPP. Additionally, ASA welcomes the president’s announcement of talks on a potential trade agreement with the European Union. We hope that these talks will take into account the unique nature of agricultural trade and provide solutions to many of the barriers that soybeans and other American agricultural exports face in the European marketplace.”While the president did mention many priorities for soybean farmers, we believe that an opportunity was missed to recognize the contributions of the agriculture community to so many of these issues. Our farmers contribute to innovative renewable energy solutions, expanded and robust trade partnership and more than 23 million jobs in a time when they are sorely needed.”Finally, President Obama touched on the need to continue fostering a national culture in which hard work is rewarded. Our industry is that effort personified. Every day, soybean farmers showcase that hard work in everything they do. They reflect our nation’s shared values of dedication, innovation, resolve and commitment, and they set an example not only for their families and those in their communities, but for all Americans.”ASA represents all U.S. soybean farmers on domestic and international issues of importance to the soybean industry. ASA’s advocacy efforts are made possible through voluntary farmer membership by farmers in 30 states where soybeans are grown.###For more information contact:Danny Murphy, ASA President, 601-906-3809, dpmurphy@bellsouth.netPatrick Delaney, ASA Communications Director, 202-969-7040, pdelaney@soy.orglast_img read more

KPD Offers Vacation House Checks

Facebook and Twitter face Senate over accusations of tech censorship

first_img Comments The tech giants denied accusations that they’re pushing a political agenda.”Suppressing content on the basis of political viewpoint, or preventing people from seeing what matters most to them, is directly contrary to Facebook’s mission,” said Neil Potts, Facebook’s public policy director. “We want Facebook to be a place where people can discover a greater diversity of news and information than they could otherwise.”Twitter said it had performed a statistical analysis of Congress members’ tweets, in preparation for the hearing. The company tracked tweets over a five-week period, and the social network found “no statistically significant difference” between the reach of tweets by Democrats versus Republicans, said Carlos Monje Jr., Twitter’s director of public policy and philanthropy for the US and Canada. 7:49 13:29 Sen. Ted Cruz, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution. Getty Images Facebook and Twitter are once again under fire from Congress for allegedly suppressing the views of conservatives. The tech giants faced accusations from the Senate on Wednesday, a day after Facebook and Google attended another high-profile hearing over the spread of white nationalism on their platforms. “Not only does big tech have the power to silence voices with which they disagree, but big tech has the power to collate a person’s feed in a way that agrees with their political agenda,” Ted Cruz, a Republican from Texas and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, said in his opening statement. “What makes the threat of political censorship so problematic is the lack of transparency.” What Facebook and Google say they’re doing to combat… Now playing: Watch this: Share your voice Senators grill Twitter and Facebook over alleged political… Tags Now playing: Watch this: Politics Tech Industry Digital Media 2 Facebook Google Twitter YouTube As Republican senators chided the tech companies, Democrats criticized the topic of the hearing. “For decades, Republicans have bashed the supposedly liberal mainstream media in an effort to work the refs,” said Mazie Hirono, a Democrat from Hawaii. “This is politics.”Google was also initially set to testify. The search giant had offered to send Max Pappas, its head of conservative outreach, but a source familiar with the situation said the committee rejected that idea. During the hearing, Cruz said the committee would hold a separate hearing specifically focused on Google and political bias. This isn’t the first time tech platforms have been accused of anti-conservative bias. Last September, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey were questioned by GOP lawmakers about a perceived left-leaning agenda. Google CEO Sundar Pichai was also invited to appear, but he declined the invitation. When Pichai did finally testify in December, he too was accused of stifling conservative voices. President Donald Trump has also criticized the tech giants for political bias. Last August, he complained that Google was suppressing his message by not promoting his State of the Union speech (which turned out to be untrue). He also said that search results for news associated with him was “rigged.” “Google and Twitter and Facebook, they’re really treading on very, very troubled territory,” Trump said. “And they have to be careful.”Ahead of the hearing, advocacy groups shot down the idea that tech platforms treat conservative content unfairly. “While we certainly agree that online platforms have created content moderation systems that remove speech, we don’t see evidence of systemic political bias against conservatives,” the Electronic Frontier Foundation said in a blog post. The Senate hearing comes a day after Facebook and Google testified before the House Judiciary Committee about the spread of white nationalism online. As if to illustrate the scope of the problem, the YouTube livestream of the hearing was flooded with hateful comments, so the Google-owned site shut down the comments section of the stream.On Tuesday, Cruz livestreamed the hearing on his Facebook page. Unlike with Monday’s stream, comments on the broadcast on Cruz’s page were civil. Originally published at 1:13 p.m. PTUpdate, 2:52 p.m. PT: Adds more details from the hearing.last_img read more

AIIMS doctors call off strike after meeting with health

first_imgNew Delhi : Resident doctors of AIIMS called off their strike and resumed duties on Sunday after Health Minister Harsh Vardhan assured them that their concerns over the NMC Bill will be duly addressed. In a communique to the AIIMS director, the Resident Doctors Association (RDA) said that during a meeting, the Union minister assured them of addressing their concerns while drafting the regulations of the National Medical Commission (NMC).

Vardhan met the delegation of resident doctors associations of AIIMS and Safdarjung hospital and hoped that they will end their strike in view of problems faced by patients. However, the Safdarjung resident doctors are yet to resume non essential services. According to sources, the resident doctors of the hospital are likely to take a decision on the strike at a governing body meeting. “Agitating doctors from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) have called off their strike.

After a governing body meeting of the RDA AIIMS, the executive committee decided to withdraw the strike and resume all services with immediate effect. They said the AIIMS administration also assured them that the strike period, August 1 to 3, would be considered as “on duty”. The NMC bill provides for setting up of a National Medical Commission in place of the MCI for development and regulation of all aspects of medical education, profession and institutions. Doctors are demanding certain amendments in the bill. According to them, if not amended, the bill will lead to deterioration of medical education and degradation of healthcare services. The fraternity is opposing section 32(1), (2) and (3) of the bill saying it will encourage quackery by providing licence to practice modern medicine as community health providers for persons other than those possessing MBBS degrees. The doctors say there was no clarity over the introduction of NEXT and scrapping the NEET-PG. They are also opposing decreasing the percentage of seats under controlled fees structure in private medical colleges and deemed universities from 85 to 50 per cent, reducing the representation of elected members from 75 per cent in MCI to 20 per cent in National Medical Commission and autonomous boards constituted there-under.last_img read more

Unemployment reduced by 40 percent in Bengal says Central report

first_imgKolkata: With a series of steps taken by the Mamata Banerjee government, unemployment has reduced by 40 percent in the state, as per a report of the Centre.Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said in the state Assembly on Thursday: “As per the report of the Central government, unemployment in the state has gone down by around 40 percent.” In the past seven years, a series of steps starting from setting up of ITIs to developing infrastructure for more investment were taken, which helped in generation of job opportunities. Moreover, many have become self-dependent as well. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeThe Chief Minister said: “Three hundreds ITIs were set up in the state.” It may be mentioned that setting up of the ITIs has ensured skill development training for a large section of job aspirants. The Chief Minister further said: “Utkarsh Bangla has been introduced in a bid to ensure a better skill development programme. A committee was also formed with Amit Mitra, the state Finance minister, as its chairman and every year, around 6 lakh students undertake training.” It may be mentioned that Utkarsh Bangla is a placement-linked skill development initiative. Moreover, an e-governance portal of Utkarsh Bangla, which is a flagship scheme of skill development in the state, was introduced for various purposes, including candidate registration, empanelment of training partners, etc. The portal also assists in maintaining transparency and at the same time, ensures better accessibility in reaching out to the unemployed youth in every part of the state.

Zillow Expands Database of Homes

first_img Agents & Brokers Company News Home Sales Investors Lenders & Servicers Service Providers Valuation Zillow 2011-06-15 Carrie Bay The real estate information marketplace “”Zillow””:http://www.zillow.com has expanded its database of homes, leveraging user-submitted data to add more than 25 million new home valuations generated from the company’s proprietary Zestimate algorithms, which are Zillow’s own market value estimates based on various details available about individual properties. [IMAGE]The Seattle-based company says it now has data, Zestimates, and Rent Zestimates on more than three-quarters of all homes in the United States.Zillow notes that it has also improved “”Zestimate accuracy””:http://www.zillow.com/howto/DataCoverageZestimateAccuracy.htm nationwide. In the past five years, Zillow users have submitted information on more than 28 million homes, adding updates, such as remodel or home fact information, that are not reflected in public records. Zillow explained that this interexchange gives the company “”an inimitable database of nearly every home in the country, and creates unique home profiles that allow[COLUMN_BREAK]Zillow to calculate more accurate Zestimates on more homes.””The company says the Zestimate median margin of error is now 8.5 percent nationwide, and below 6 percent in major metropolitan areas such as Denver, San Diego, and Washington D.C.In addition, the expansion brings Zestimates to homeowners, buyers, and sellers in states like Iowa and New Hampshire, where Zestimates were not widely available. “”We’ve spent six years cultivating our database of nearly all homes, creating a unique and living entity that combines public record data with information submitted by Zillow users,”” said Stan Humphries, Zillow chief economist. “”By expanding the Zestimate algorithm to include more data points and new modeling approaches, we have been able to expand Zillow’s footprint and improve accuracy.””Zillow launched Zillow.com in 2006, with Zestimates on approximately 40 million U.S. homes. Since then, Zillow has more than doubled Zestimate coverage nationwide and added 100 million Rent Zestimates.The company explained that Zestimates are a starting point in determining a home’s value. That, taken together with a home’s value range, comparable recent sales, and current listings, Zillow says its information, which is available for free, helps consumers gain an edge in real estate and make more informed decisions.Zestimates and other home information can be found on “”Zillow.com””:http://www.zillow.com and on Zillow Mobile for the iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry. in Technology Zillow Expands Database of Homescenter_img June 15, 2011 478 Views Sharelast_img read more

Anastasiades criticises bailout terms

first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades has launched scathing criticism over the terms of an international bailout which forced massive losses on bank deposits, saying the support lenders displayed to Greece was absent in the case of Cyprus.Cyprus, one of the smallest economies in the eurozone, was forced to wind down one bank, and seize savings in a second to qualify for a €10 billion aid package from the International Monetary Fund and the EU in March.In a letter to lenders, collectively known as the troika, Anastasiades expressed concern onerous conditions for aid were a stranglehold over an economy facing deep recession, with legacy debt from the wound-down bank adding to the vulnerability of the banking system.To prevent financial collapse and be eligible for aid, Cyprus is closing down Laiki Bank and converting sizeable deposits in Bank of Cyprus into equity to help recapitalise that bank.The process, known as a ‘bail-in’, was a first in the history of the eurozone debt crisis. Thousands of depositors lost their savings, and subsequent capital controls were imposed to prevent a drain on remaining deposits. Those controls are largely still in place.“It is my humble submission that the bail-in was implemented without careful preparation,” Anastasiades says in the letter, reported by financial website Stockwatch and other local media outlets.The president said there was no clear understanding of how a bail-in would be implemented, legal issues were being raised and there were major delays in completing the process.No distinction was made between long-term deposits earning high returns and money flowing through current accounts, such as company working capital.“An alternative, longer term, downsizing of the banking system away from publicity and without bank-runs was a credible alternative that would not have produced such a deep recession and loss of confidence in the banking system,” the letter said.Finance Minister Haris Georgiades, who Anastasiades said, had already alerted lenders to potential pitfalls without receiving a response, declined comment on the matter.As part of the aid package, Laiki and BoC were forced to sell their Greek branches, while deposits the banks had in that country were exempt from the bail-in, to avoid contagion to Greece.“As understandable as ring-fencing may be, this was absent at the time of deciding the Greek PSI (Private Sector Involvement) in relation to Greek government bonds which cost Cyprus 25 per cent of its GDP,” Anastasiades wrote.He was referring to a Greek sovereign debt restructuring which imposed heavy losses on Cypriot banks in early 2012.“The heavy burden placed on Cyprus by the restructuring of Greek debt was not taken into consideration when it was Cyprus’ turn to seek help,” Anastasiades said.BoC, is assuming some of Laiki’s assets, was also forced to assume Laiki’s emergency liquidity assistance (ELA) liability, a funding lifeline provided from the European Central Bank.BoC has a total ELA liability of around €2 billion. By taking an additional €9 billion from Laiki, which was accumulated over the course of the last year under very questionable circumstances, BoC has substantially increased the vulnerability of its own funding structure, with its cumulative ELA liability reaching a very high €11 billion, Anastasiades said.“The imposition of Laiki’s ELA liability on BoC is the main contributor to the liquidity strain Bank of Cyprus faces.”“I stress the systemic importance of BoC, not only in terms of the banking system but also for the entire economy. The success of the programme approved by the Eurogroup and the troika depends upon the emergence of a strong and viable BoC,”the president said.He urged lenders to find a long-term solution to BoC’s liquidity issue in a bid to regain confidence and allow the economy to function without restrictions.“Artificial measures such as capital restrictions may seem to prevent a bank run in the short term but will only aggravate the depositors the longer they persist. Rather than creating confidence in the banking system they are eroding it by the day. Maintaining capital restrictions for a long period will inevitably have devastating effects on the local economy, will also affect the country’s international business and will have an adverse impact on GDP.”You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSenior Living | Search AdsCheap Senior Apartments in Rowland Heights Are Turning HeadsSenior Living | Search AdsUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)UndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
