KIRYL IVANOU, SALIDARNASTS 4.12.2018, 14:34 When a mere glance in the mirror is enough. At a meeting with the leadership of the Council of Ministers, Lukashenka raised the topic of state support to enterprises of the agro-industrial complex, recalling his recent instructions on who should be supported first of all:– First, report back that everything possible and impossible has been done: reserves have been found, all kinds of expenses, especially non-production ones, have been reduced, and that you have specified the names of those who have brought the enterprises to such a state when they have to go hat in hand.And although this statement concerned the agrarian sphere, it seems that the words about the list of those guilty are completely applicable to other fields. Moreover, the beginning of December gave many reasons to think about what is happening in the country.For example, who is responsible for the fact that Belarus is critically dependent on oil supplies … [Read more...] about Word On Lukashenka’s Name List

A list of 21 storm names for the coming season has been announced, which includes Idris, Peggy and Dierdre. This is the fourth year the Met Office and Met Éireann, the meteorological service in the Irish Republic, have jointly run the ‘Name our Storms’ scheme. First introduced in 2015, the national weather providers aim to raise awareness of severe conditions before they hit the country. For 2018 to 2019, the first storm will be ‘male’ and named Ali, while the second storm will be ‘female’ and named Bronagh. This follows the alternating male/female pattern established by the US National Hurricane Center in the 1970s. Evelyn Cusack, Head of Forecasting at Met Éireann, said: “The last 12 months have seen some extreme weather around the globe as well as here at home. "While it is too early to say whether the coming winter will be a stormy one or a quiet one we are prepared with a whole new set of 21 names for whatever nature may … [Read more...] about Met Office storm names list announced for winter
Last Updated Jul 6, 2018 10:24 AM EDT SAN ANTONIO -- Some immigrant U.S. Army reservists and recruits who enlisted in the military with a promised path to citizenship are being abruptly discharged, the Associated Press has learned. The AP was unable to quantify how many men and women who enlisted through the special recruitment program have been booted from the Army, but immigration attorneys say they know of more than 40 who have been discharged or whose status has become questionable, jeopardizing their futures."It was my dream to serve in the military," said reservist Lucas Calixto, a Brazilian immigrant who filed a lawsuit against the Army last week. "Since this country has been so good to me, I thought it was the least I could do to give back to my adopted country and serve in the United States military."Some of the service members say they were not told why they were being discharged. Others who pressed for answers said the Army informed them they'd been labeled as security … [Read more...] about U.S. Army abruptly discharging immigrant recruits: AP
A Philippine mayor on President Rodrigo Duterte's list of allegedly narcotics-linked officials was shot dead Monday by a "sniper" in a broad daylight attack at a town ceremony, police said. Antonio Halili was hit in the chest by a single shot fired from a distance, unleashing chaotic scenes during the weekly flag raising ceremony at the town hall in Tanauan, south of Manila. In the moments that followed, terrified onlookers screamed and the mayor's security details opened fire, video of the scene showed. However, the shooter managed to escape and Halili was pronounced dead at hospital. Town police chief Renato Mercado told AFP the shot was fired from about 150 metres (490 feet) away. "The distance from the position was extraordinary. It could not be done by an ordinary person. His skill can be compared to a trained sniper," he told AFP. The controversial Halili had compared himself to Mr Duterte as he publicly shared the president's hardline position against crime and illegal drugs. … [Read more...] about Philippine mayor on Rodrigo Duterte’s ‘narco-list’ slain by ‘sniper’ during flag-raising ceremony
SOUTH KOREA are taking on Germany at the World Cup in Russia. But viewers have been confused to find the country's name listed as Korea Republic in the tournament. Why is South Korea called Korea Republic during the World Cup? The name Korea Republic came about after World War Two, when Korea as a whole gained independence from the Japanese. North Korea and South Korea are actually geographical terms that are not the official names of the countries. Both the North, which is called the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, and the South claim to rule the whole of the Korean Peninsula and be the home of all Koreans. As the Korean War is yet to officially come to an end despite and improvement in relations between the two governments, it could be argued that Korean Republic is an even more fitting name for Korea's only representatives at the competition. What is South Korea's official name? South Korea is actually called the Republic of Korea and Korea Republic is a shortened … [Read more...] about Why is South Korea called Korea Republic at the World Cup 2018 and what is country’s official name?
