World News / Amnesty condemns US approval of arms sales to Israel
« Last post by Miss Ifeoluwa on Today at 04:43:32 AM »


Human rights group Amnesty has condemned US plans to sell weapons worth $735m to Israel in the midst of the latest conflict with Palestinian armed groups saying the approval undermines the US commitment to upholding human rights around the world.

“By supplying weapons that could be used to commit war crimes, the US government is taking the risk of fueling further attacks against civilians and seeing more people killed or injured by US weapons,” Philippe Nassif, Amnesty International USA’s advocacy director for the Middle East and North Africa, said in a statement urging Biden to reconsider the decision.

US ‘delay’ in ceasefire support ‘has caused slaughter of children’: Ilhan Omar

The tweet came after Biden told Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu in a phone call that he backed a ceasefire.

World News / Israel shells Lebanon as Biden backs Gaza ceasefire
« Last post by Miss Ifeoluwa on Today at 04:39:33 AM »


As Palestinian groups fired rockets at Israeli cities and diplomatic attempts for a truce intensified, Israel resumed its bombardment of the Gaza Strip on Tuesday.

The Israeli military also said it shelled Lebanon in retaliation for six failed missile launches from the country's south.

In Washington DC, US President Joe Biden held his third phone conversation with Israeli caretaker Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and expressed his support for a ceasefire, but stopped short of demanding an end to violence that has killed more than 200 people.

The White House said Biden “encouraged Israel to make every effort to ensure the protection of innocent civilians” and that the two leaders “discussed progress in Israel’s military operations against Hamas and other terrorist groups in Gaza”.

The latest escalation between Israel and Hamas, which governs Gaza, is now in its second week and shows no sign of abating.

At least 212 Palestinians, including 61 children, have been killed in Gaza since the violence erupted on May 10. Some 1,500 Palestinians have been wounded.



Israel has reported 10 dead, including two children.

#ASUP_STRIKE_UPDATE / Monday May 17th 2021

To call off strike, FG must release 2.23per cent of N823bn we demanded, ASUP insists

 
The polytechnic lecturers in the country have insisted to continue with their ongoing industrial action which has crippled the academic activities in the nation’s public polytechnics until the Federal Government yielded to their demands.

They said they were asking, for now, only N19 billion (representing 2.31 per cent) out of a total of N823 billion that the Federal Government had agreed with the union to inject into the public polytechnic education nationwide since 2018.

The N19 billion, according to them, comprises N15 billion revitalisation funds and N4 billion to offset their accumulated arrears on minimum wage.
 
The National President of ASUP, Dr Anderson Ezeibe, gave this position, in an exclusive interview with Nigerian Tribune.

According to him, ASUP original plan as regards this current strike wasn’t to stay on the industrial action for long as this, but for government insensitivity and insincerity on the issue.

He explained that ASUP is not making a fresh demand but only refreshed the old ones and then asked the government to meet a very small fraction of it as immediate.

“So, we are not asking for something impossible. The government will need to inject the N19 billion into the system without further delay. It is for the good of polytechnic education and Nigeria’s economy.

“And even as we speak, the high inflation in the country has messed up the value of the money. N19 billion of last year is no longer the same in value term this year and the value further depreciates each day.

“So, the government will need to do the needful by releasing the money in real term and not in the paper.

“Though we heard that the Federal Ministry of Education had made the request is written to the President for the release of the funds, we can’t rely on that as requisition for funds is not the same thing as the fund itself.”

While noting that polytechnic education is designed to produce skilful and highly technical manpower for the economy, ASUP boss, however, appealed to students and parents and the lovers of a good education to see the strike as a sacrifice for better tomorrow.

He, therefore, re-emphasized that ASUP members would sustain the five-week-old strike till their demands are met.

Sponsored Post / Who Has The Cheapest Car Insurance Companies
« Last post by Mr. Babatunde on Today at 03:40:52 AM »


Insurance firms base their premiums in part on data showing that older and married drivers file fewer claims. You can't change your age or get married just to save money on premiums. You should, however, take action to save money on car insurance and get the best deal possible.

Who has the most cheapest or affordable car insurance?

Three companies consistently came out on top with the lowest rates for our driver profiles among the nine insurance firms in our study: USAA, Geico, and State Farm. Be sure to compare quotes and check around to find the best car insurance deal.

1. USAA: Cheapest Overall, but You Need a Military Affiliation

USAA is difficult to beat, but you must have a military connection to be eligible for coverage. Customers give USAA high marks, and the company offers the best prices for drivers with a clean driving record and a bad credit background. If you have a speeding ticket or an accident on your driving record, USAA has the lowest premiums.

Annual USAA Car Insurance Rates:

$875 for good drivers
$1,048 for drivers with one speeding ticket
$1,220 for drivers with one accident
$1,602 for drivers with poor credit

2. Geico: Cheapest for Good Drivers and Drivers with Poor Credit

For good drivers with a clear driving record but no military involvement, Geico is the cheapest car insurance provider we find. Geico also provides better auto insurance than any of the insurers in our report if your credit history requires work.

Annual Geico Car Insurance Rates:

$1,100 for good drivers
$1,719 for drivers with poor credit

3. State Farm: Cheapest After a Speeding Ticket, Accident or DUI

If you need inexpensive auto insurance but have a spotty driving record, State Farm is a great option. According to our research, State Farm has the cheapest car insurance after a DUI. If you have a speeding ticket or an accident on your record, the prices are among the most competitive.

Annual State Farm Insurance Rates:

$1,299 for drivers with one speeding ticket
$1,405 for drivers with one accident
$1,569 for drivers with a DUI

Car Insurance for Good Drivers at a Low Cost

To calculate the average representative rates, we used good drivers as a baseline. This allows us to see how the study premiums adjust when we apply a speeding ticket or an injury to the profile, or as we lower the profile's credit score.

One of the easiest ways to get inexpensive auto insurance is to be a good driver with no incidents or tickets on your record. Clients who are safe drivers are those who auto insurance companies want on their books so they are less likely to file a lawsuit. As a result, they receive lower rates than drivers who have had previous speeding tickets or injuries.
