Oka calls for moratorium on land transfer and seeks RCMP presence in

first_imgOKA, Que. — The Quebec town of Oka is calling on the federal government to impose a moratorium on the proposed transfer of lands to the neighbouring community of Kanesatake.It is also asking for an RCMP detachment to police the Mohawk community.The proposals were contained in resolutions adopted Tuesday evening addressed to the federal and provincial governments as well as to the Mohawk Council of Kanesatake.Mayor Pascal Quevillon held the first public council meeting since tensions mounted after a local developer proposed returning privately held lands to the adjacent Mohawk community, about 50 kilometres west of Montreal.Quevillon told the meeting that Oka wants to live in harmony with the neighbouring Mohawk community, saying strong ties between the two have developed over 300 years of history.But the council is calling on Ottawa to hold consultations that would take into account the concerns of Oka residents over the proposed transfer of land. The mayor also said an RCMP presence is needed to restore law and order in Kanesatake.

American Jews and Moroccan Professionals Talk Russian over Sushi in New…

By Irina TsukermanNew York – What happens when you take ten young Jewish and Moroccan professionals and bring them together for dinner in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York. First they bond over the shortcomings of the overpriced real estate in this part of the world. Then they further their budding relationship by practicing their hipster-dodging skills together while searching for a meal.Finally, they realize that neither an overcrowded Moroccan place nor a restaurant called “Traif” will do, and settle for what New Yorkers of all backgrounds share with gusto – some great sushi at a delicious unpretentious little place called Mizu.  And after finally settling down and having a good laugh, they proceed to get down to business  – food, more laughter, and fun. Thanks to the efforts of the Moroccan event planner Simo Elaissaoui and his Jewish counterparts, these young professionals from Morocco and assorted Jewish organizations came together for the first evening of what promises to be an exciting and enjoyable series of monthly social get-togethers. What’s the catch, you may ask? There is none. There is no hidden political agenda. No chaperones. No rules. No barriers. This is how friendships are built. This new vision of relationship-building will hopefully prove an effective counterweight to the stagnant model of intercultural and interfaith dialogues that have become so popular within the NGO world. These exercises in futility have spread like a plague across Western institutions and have succeeded at one thing – taking all the joy out of interactions among people from different backgrounds. Where “should” comes in, fun ends. Instead of agonizing over which potentially sensitive subjects to avoid, this crowd chose to speak freely about whatever came to mind, tease each other, discuss both the serious and the trivial with equal elation, while chowing down on dish after dish of delicious raw fish and steaks and doing the most New Yorkish thing possible – complaining about the inevitability of death by starvation should the food continue to take its time in being served.The growing interest in each other, stimulated by exploring a variety of topics, is coming at an opportune time in the strengthening of relations between Morocco and the Jewish communities in other parts of the world. Morocco plays a unique role in offering an unprecedented level of protection for its Jewish community, and in essence, including its Jewish citizens specifically in its constitution, a fact that is being rediscovered both by Moroccans of all backgrounds inside the country and Moroccan and non-Moroccan Jews in the West. That, however, is to be expected because Morocco has a long-standing tradition not just of tolerance, but also of successful integration of its citizens of all cultural backgrounds in a uniquely diverse society. What is more surprising is that when some of the Jews, some of the Moroccans start speaking Russian.Discovering that you speak a common language is always beautiful. Finding that you have more than one and in which you can happily gossip about everyone else and share jokes no one else will understand is priceless. And then the bill comes in… actually it doesn’t. The whole crew waits and waits and waits, and continues talking, growing increasingly merry over wine and good food… only to realize than one of their new Moroccan friends has, with incredible grace and modesty, covered the entire bill. The group shuts down the restaurant, leaving happy, stuffed to the gills, and eagerly planning the next outing. The goal is to eat our way through New York – Moroccan, Greek, Russian, and more. Fun tends to have a domino effect.  This gathering is already conspiring to start a snowball of friends-raising through future adventures in cultural experiences, both relaxed, and thrilling, well-planned and completely spontaneous. And that’s a kind of avalanche we can all get behind. read more

New UN fund awards 300000 to help rehabilitate victims of human trafficking

18 October 2011Organizations in 12 countries that help victims of human trafficking seek justice, return home and otherwise recover from their ordeal were collectively awarded some $300,000 today in the first grant of a new United Nations fund. “A unique approach is being employed by the UN to channel severely needed funds to survivors of the horrific crime of human trafficking,” UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Executive Director Yury Fedotov said, appealing for greater financial support for the Small Grants Facility, launched earlier this year as part of the UNODC-managed UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking.“There is a critical need for increased donations so that we can step up this assistance. There is no place for human trafficking in the world and the Small Grants Facility has a role to play in eradicating this inhumane act,” he added of a $32-billion global industry, which is currently estimated to be exploiting over 2.4 million people, two-thirds of them women and children.The 12 projects selected for the first year of the facility cover all major regions of the world and set to be rolled out in Albania, Cambodia, Costa Rica, the Czech Republic, France, India, Israel, Kenya, Nepal, Nigeria, Moldova and the United States.With projects running from 10 months up to three years, the funding assists in several areas, with the ultimate aim of empowering trafficking victims to regain their futures. The services include legal support to allow victims to seek justice against those who enslaved them; facilities to register their identities and return home, and much needed counselling, training and support to ensure they are in a position to rebuild their lives. The 12 organizations are African Centre for Advocacy and Human Development (Nigeria); Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking (US); Damnok Toek Poipet (Cambodia); Different and Equal (Albania); DNI (Costa Rica); Hors la Rue (France); Hotline for Migrant Workers (Israel); Institute for Democracy (Moldova); La Strada (Czech Republic); Shakti Samuha (Nepal), The CRADLE – the Children Foundation (Kenya); and the Esther Benjamins Memorial Foundation (Nepal/India).The trust fund, formed late last year after the General Assembly called for greater global action against human trafficking, particularly from the survivors’ perspective, supports on-the-ground organizations and offers the opportunity for governments, the private sector, international organizations, non-government organizations (NGOs) and individuals to work together to help victims in practical and tangible ways.It is administered by a board of trustees representing different regions and accepts donations to support these organizations working at the forefront of services to trafficking victims. read more

A gross error of judgement Labour senator has no confidence in Rabbitte

first_img“I don’t think he has any interest in his portfolio. He has been too dismissive towards genuine concerns that are founded in fact and research.”Whelan said he would like to see Rabbitte replaced in any Cabinet reshuffle and said the appointment of O’Connor should be reconsidered by the Minister.‘Slipping in innuendo’He also called on O’Connor to reconsider taking the job, while acknowledging that he is “a man of utmost integrity and skills for position”.“But that is not the issue,” Whelan said. “This is not about the personality it’s about the policy conflict.”O’Connor has already denied any conflict of interest in his appointment, telling the Irish Times on Wednesday that he has no involvement with An Bord Pleanála now.Meanwhile speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland yesterday Rabbitte accused those criticising the appointment of “slipping in innuendo”.“It’s a monstrous allegation that is unworthy of those making it. The man left the place two years ago, he has a distinguished record in a number of areas,” he insisted, adding O’Connor’s “probity is not in doubt”.Whelan said that the Eurogrid project is being progressed in order to cope with the increasing number of wind farms being built in Ireland, and accused the Minister of ignoring other renewable energy sources.“There is a preference in the corridors of power for wind energy and that’s why grid capacity is being expanded, not to cope with any supply and demand issue,” Whelan claimed.Describing the appointment as a “gross error of judgement”, the Laois-based senator said that the government should consider putting large electricity cables underground, as is the case in Denmark.The government has argued that this would be three times as expensive as overhead pylons and voted down a Dáil motion, tabled by Senator Rónán Mullen, to place the cabling underground on Wednesday.Whelan was among three Labour senators to abstain on the vote which passed by just 26 votes to 25.Rabbitte: ‘I want Eirgrid to do everything it can to secure community acceptance’Read: Electricity project to be scrutinised at An Bord Pleanála hearingsWATCH: Mattie McGrath tells Rabbitte to ‘count the tits on Mrs Murphy’s cow’ A LABOUR SENATOR has said that he has “no confidence” in the Communications Minister Pat Rabbitte following the appointment of the former head of An Bord Pleanála as the chairman of Eirgrid.John Whelan’s criticism of Rabbitte follows the appointment of John O’Connor, two years after he left the planning board which is now considering objections to Eirgrid’s countrywide EuroGrid 25 project, which aims to update Ireland’s electricity infrastructure.Part of the EuroGrid project in the Laois-Kilkenny area, which includes the installation of over a dozen high-powered eletricity pylons, has been the subject of an An Bord Pleanála public hearing which concludes today.The project is being vehemently opposed by some residents, who question the need for the cabling and argue it could be placed underground.Whelan said that the appointment of O’Connor as the new chairman of Eirgrid “displays an astonishing level of arrogance and detachment and a lack of awareness of the profound, serious and genuine concerns” that are held by people about the Eurogrid project.He stopped short of calling for his Labour colleague Rabbitte to resign, but told TheJournal.ie: “I’ve no confidence in how he is handling his brief.last_img read more

Ming points controversy damages reputation of independents Joan Collins

first_imgTHE PEOPLE BEFORE Profit TD Joan Collins has admitted that the controversy surrounding Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan’s penalty points has impacted on the reputation of independent deputies in the Dáil.Flanagan has been mired in controversy for the past week after he admitted that he had two sets of penalty points wiped from his record including one set which were wiped after he wrote to gardaí claiming he was exempt under a rule regarding travelling on Dáil business.Flanagan had previously attempted to expose what he and three other TDs, including Collins, claimed was widespread quashing of penalty points from drivers’ licences  with as many as 50,000 points wiped over a four-year period.“I think you have to accept it will have some impact,” Collins told TheJournal.ie yesterday when asked about the damage to the reputation of independent TDs this week’s revelations may have caused.This latest controversy follows the furore surrounding Mick Wallace’s under-declaration of VAT last year which caused him considerable embarrassment and led to calls for him to resign his Dáil seat. Flanagan has also faced calls to resign this week.Contrary to a report yesterday, Flanagan cannot be ejected from the Dáil Technical Group – the grouping of independent TDs for the purposes of speaking rights in the Dáil – and so far no attempts have been made to ostracise the Roscommon-South Leitrim deputy.Flanagan did not return a request for comment yesterday. ‘He apologised profusely’Collins said that Flanagan’s actions were “out of order” and “wrong” and said she was particularly disappointed given she had been one of the deputies who named some of the high-profile public figures alleged to have had penalty points wiped from their licences in the Dáil last year.“I put my neck on the line in trying to expose the situation,” she said.“He was wrong and I said it to him,” she said of her conversation with Flanagan this week. “He apologised profusely, he said he shouldn’t have done it, and that it shouldn’t happened. But that’s okay saying that after the fact.”Collins said it was the nature of the Technical Group that Flanagan could not be ejected from it as it was a grouping constituted purely for speaking rights in the Dáil chamber.“If Michael Lowry applied to come in we couldn’t stop him. That’s the nature of the beast, it was put together for speaking rights. That’s really what it is, so he can’t be ejected,” she said.The Dublin South-Central TD insisted that the issue of penalty points being wiped was still relevant and claimed that raising the issue has led to TDs being targeted in the media.“None of us are whiter than white, we’re all public figures now,” she said. “It’s a media trying to undermine those who are making a stand on issues. They’re trying to drag anything out but Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan did do that, you can’t make excuses for what he did.”Collins would not be drawn on whether Flanagan should resign from the Dáil or not.“I’m not going into that territory,” she added.Read: Junior minister says Ming’s behaviour is ‘despicable and hypocritical’Column: ‘Ming’ case demonstrates a profound misunderstanding of parliamentary privilegeMick Wallace: Ming should have accepted quashed penalty pointslast_img read more

Released Driver Sought in Crash that Killed 1 Year Old

first_img1 year old Jeremiah Perry, killed in crash on Nov. 1. (Facebook Photo)Baltimore police are searching for a man wanted after a crash during a police pursuit killed a 1-year-old boy.Police announced on Nov. 4 that 38-year-old Wayne Anthony Green is wanted for negligent manslaughter, attempting to evade a police officer, and driving with a revoked license.Baltimore County police say they pursued a car that hit a cruiser at a crash scene into the city Nov. 1. City police said the fleeing Mercedes Benz plowed into a Volvo, sending it into a bus stop where 1-year-old Jeremiah Perry’s mother was waiting with the boy in a stroller.The car struck the child, who died of his injuries. Police say Green was taken to a hospital and released. Police say they have not been able to find Green since prosecutors brought charges on Nov. 2.Baltimore County police said the tragic sequence began when a man was fatally struck by a vehicle while trying to cross Pulaski Highway before 7 p.m. Police closed the road for an investigation and about two hours later, police said a Mercedes-Benz hit a police cruiser helping with the road closure, then fled.Another officer pursued the Mercedes into Baltimore city, where police say it rearended a Volvo on Moravia Road, then hit a pole. The impact pushed the Volvo up onto the sidewalk, where a woman was waiting at a bus stop with Jeremiah Perry in a stroller. The boy was hit and was critically injured. He later died at a hospital, police said.The officer whose cruiser was hit, the driver of the Volvo and the boy’s mother were not injured, police said.last_img read more

MercedesBenz Protects Your Hearing During a Car Crash Using Pink Noise

first_imgStay on target Car makers have developed a myriad of technologies to keep you safe in the event of a collision. Airbags, seat belt pre-tensioning, and other features can reduce the damage done in a car accident, but what about your hearing? Crashes are loud enough to cause damage to the inner ear, but Mercedes-Benz has a potential solution. Its latest vehicles play a burst of pink noise to insulate your ears from the sound of an accident.This new feature is part of the Mercedes-Benz Pre-Safe system. That encompasses various features tied to the car’s built-in sensors. When the car detects that an impact is unavoidable, it takes steps to prepare. One of the things it now does is play a burst of pink noise through the speakers. Mercedes-Benz has included a special audio processing chip in the new 2016 E-Class for this purpose.The goal of this sound is to trigger the stapedius reflex in your ears. This refers to the stapedius muscle, which moves a bone called the stapes away from where it contacts the inner ear. This lessens the amount of energy that can be transferred, but it only lasts a second. This reflex is triggered by loud noises, allowing the ear to protect itself from damage. The Mercedes-Benz system is aimed at triggering this reflex immediately before a crash, and it does it with pink noise.The threshold for triggering the stapedius reflex is about 100dB, which is fairly loud on its own. That’s too much sound to be blasting at people on purpose, but pink noise has more energy than a single tone because of the way it’s spread across the spectrum. It can have lower volume but still trigger the stapedius reflex. Mercedes-Benz tested the system and found an 80dB burst of pink noise was effective in preparing the ears to cope with loud noises associated with collisions. Mercedes-Benz hopes to expand Pre-Safe sound to more vehicles later. ‘Mouth Fighting’ Worms Make One Hell of an Underwater RacketHow Designers Achieved the Sci-Fi Sound Magic of ‘The Orville’ last_img read more

Nanodevices could use quantized current to operate future electronics

first_img Citation: Nanodevices could use quantized current to operate future electronics (2007, November 26) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2007-11-nanodevices-quantized-current-future-electronics.html This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. For the past several decades, virtually all electronics devices have been based on the CMOS logic system, which uses semiconductors and transistors to form digital circuits. However, researchers today are investigating the use of novel materials and technologies to create superior circuitry, which would lead to smaller, faster and smarter computers, cell phones, and other devices. Explore further Producing graphene from carbon dioxide Then, the researchers suggested how PTTGs made in either of these two ways could be used to create universal logic gates. Due to the flexible quantization characteristics of the current-quantization devices, a single PTTG could implement nearly all 256 three-input Boolean functions (the most common computing method in digital electronics). Also, two PTTGs put together could implement all 65,536 four-input Boolean functions. “The quantized current devices have several quantization states that can be used to represent discrete logic states,” Zhang explained, “while conventional CMOS transistors have only two logic states: on and off. That’s why the quantized current device can enable complicated and compact periodic-threshold threshold logic gates.”The researchers also explained that the current-quantized logic gates could have several advantages over conventional logic gates. For one thing, they have both a simple and more universal circuit structure. Compared to the 40 transistors required by a conventional three-input logic gate, a PTTG would only require 10 equivalent devices. Further, the two current-quantized logic gates both have very small sizes, offering the potential for high density circuitry. Finally, due to their small size and low resistance, the new logic gates may also have a significant speed advantage.“The key to achieving quantized current devices is small device geometry,” Zhang said. “Both the ballistic transport of electrons in electron waveguides and the Coulomb-blockade effect in the single-electron turnstile require small device geometry to overcome the thermal energy. With recent advances in fabrication, room-temperature operations of the electron waveguide and single-electron turnstile are possible.”More information: Zhang, Wancheng, Wu, Nan-Jian, and Yang, Fuhua. “Compact universal logic gates realized using quantization of current in nanodevices.” Nanotechnology 18 (2007) 495201 (8pp).Copyright 2007 PhysOrg.com. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed in whole or part without the express written permission of PhysOrg.com. Most recently, scientists Wancheng Zhang, Nan-Jian Wu, and Fuhua Yang from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing have designed logic gates—a basic component of digital circuits—that use the quantization of electric current to perform operations. The recent development of two unique nanodevices has enabled scientists to control the flow of individual electrons, allowing the team to propose novel universal logic gates that are more compact than conventional logic gates.“When talking about future digital circuits using nanodevices, researchers usually focus on their potentially high density and fast speed,” Zhang told PhysOrg.com. “The greatest significance of this work is that we show that the unique operating principles of novel nanodevices can be used to implement smarter logic circuits with very compact structures. Therefore, future nano-based-circuits can have advantages both in size and in circuit structure.”In their study published in Nanotechnology, the researchers proposed two different designs for building “periodic-threshold threshold logic gates” (PTTGs). In the first method, the researchers proposed using an electron waveguide—which is essentially a one-dimensional channel—to take advantage of the wave nature of the electron. Because the channel is narrower than a single electron, an electron wave can travel through the channel without scattering, in a discrete number of modes. By using two of these electron waveguides, and combining their current values, the logic gate could have an output consisting of the combined input currents.In the second method, the scientists proposed a PTTG using a single-electron turnstile, a device that can accurately control the number of transferred electrons using a quantum effect called the Coulomb-blockade effect. This effect, which only exists in a tiny area about the size of a single electron particle, ensures that the number of electrons transferred by the turnstile is a quantized function of its voltage. By controlling the voltage, the researchers could theoretically determine the number of captured electrons, and use two single-electron turnstiles to transfer electrons to a storage node, with the difference of electrons between the two turnstiles determining the output signal.last_img read more

The researchers studied a subset of 227 elderly patients aged 75 and over and compared them with younger patients. Although at entry into the trial these patients had more physical impairment of activity than younger patients, they did not rate their overall quality of life as inferior, and they showed a positive response to a single fraction of radiotherapy.”The patients filled out extensive questionnaires on pain and quality of life at regular intervals,” said Westhoff. “Although we knew already that a single fraction of 8 Gy was effective in treating bone pain across the board, we were unsure as to its precise effect in the elderly, and we were pleased to be able to show that this treatment is effective in all age groups. Even though the elderly group responded slightly less well than the others to the treatment, their response was sufficient to justify the use of palliative radiotherapy in these patients.”Reasons why the elderly group responded less well to the treatment may be related to their poorer performance status when they joined the trial and the higher percentage of male patients, who were more likely to have prostate cancer. Women were more likely to have breast cancer, which often responds better to treatment than lung or prostate cancer.The three main groups of primary tumours in the patients studied were breast (39 percent), prostate (23 percent) and lung cancers (25 percent). The remaining 13 percent comprised a variety of primary tumours, such as bladder cancer, rectal cancer and oesophageal cancer. The group was made up 54 percent men and 46 percent women.”We saw that the type of primary tumour had an effect on the response to treatment,” said Westhoff. “For example, patients with lung cancer had less chance of response than those with breast or prostate cancer. We believe that this variety in response is due to the aggressiveness of the disease and the limited ability to treat it with systemic agents.”Bone metastases develop when cancer cells from primary tumours migrate to the bone, causing it to weaken over a period of time. They can cause pain, which can be severe and debilitating, compression of the spinal cord, fractures, spinal instability, anaemia, and significant degeneration of quality of life. Bone is one of the most common places for cancer to spread and, once there, the cancer cells settle in their new environment and continue to grow.The pain from bone metastases arises through stretching of the periosteum, the membrane lining the external surface of the bone and which contains many nerve endings. The stretching activates pain receptors, and chemical mediators of pain such as prostaglandins also play a role. The precise pain-killing mechanism of radiotherapy in these cases is unknown; it is not solely due to tumour shrinkage, say the researchers, because the onset of response can be very rapid. More likely it is a response mechanism involving chemical mediators such as prostaglandin that causes the pain relief.”Bone metastases can profoundly disrupt a patient’s life, particularly when, as is the case with many elderly, they already have other health problems. Strategies for minimising their effect are vital to improving quality of life,” Westhoff said.”Radiotherapy departments across The Netherlands are trying to set up a prospective database to follow up the effectiveness of a number of palliative treatments. Following these encouraging results in the elderly, we intend to focus on this age group in the future,” she concluded.President of ESTRO, Professor Vincenzo Valentini, a radiation oncologist at the Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli, Rome, Italy, said: “We know that the pain relief from a single fraction of radiotherapy can reduce patients’ morphine consumption. Though morphine is an important drug in the control of tumour pain, it has side-effects such as nausea, constipation, and grogginess, which compromise seriously patients’ quality of life.

Portugals deadliest fire still rages after 62 people killed

first_img PEDROGAO GRANDE, Portugal — More than 1,000 firefighters were still battling Portugal’s deadliest forest blaze on Monday after it killed at least 62 people over the weekend.Prime Minister Antonio Costa, who on Sunday visited Pedrogao Grande, a mountainous area about 200 kilometers (125 miles) northeast of Lisbon, called it the biggest human tragedy in Portugal in living memory.Welcome light rain that started on Monday morning brought only modest relief to the shocked population and exhausted firefighters. Water planes, including French and Spanish ones, resumed their missions after stopping overnight.Aerial view of a forest fire is seen from the cabin of a Spanish fire fighting plane near Pedrogao Grande, Portugal, June 18, 2017. (Spanish Defence Ministry-Spanish Air Force/Handout via REUTERS)“There is still a lot of forest that can burn and the rain does not make much difference,” said Rui Barreto, deputy chief firefighter at the makeshift emergency services headquarters in Pedrogao Grande as thunder rolled through the skies over the ash-covered town.More news:  Help Princess Cruises break the world record for largest vow renewal at seaFirefighters said the weather conditions were still adverse in most areas where the flames were raging. Two army battalions were helping the emergency services.Dozens of fire engines drove back and forth to fight the raging blaze in areas as far as 20km north of Pedrogao Grande. In a sign of help Portugal is receiving from its European neighbors, four Spanish fire engines were seen driving off from the headquarters.At least half the victims died in their cars as they tried to flee along a local motorway while many other bodies were found next to the road, suggesting they had probably abandoned their vehicles in panic.Red Cross and other relief personnel are seen outside a relief centre for people affected by a forest fire in Figueiro dos Vinhos, Portugal, June 19, 2017. (REUTERS/Miguel Vidal)GOVERNMENT ASSURANCESDespite government assurances that the first response by the emergency services was swift and adequate, many media and residents questioned the efficiency of the operation and the strategic planning in a country which is used to wooded areas burning every year.More news:  Flight Centre Travel Group takes full ownership of Quebec-based agency“So what failed this Saturday? Everything, as it has failed for decades,” read a headline in the daily Publico, which blamed a lack of coordination between services in charge of fire prevention and firefighting and poor forestry reserve planning.Police said a lightning strike on a tree probably caused the blaze on Saturday in a region hit by an intense heat wave and dry, gusty winds, which fanned the flames.The regional prosecutor still ordered a criminal investigation into the causes, which he said would be shelved if the police version of events is confirmed. Many forest fires in Portugal are caused by arson or carelessness.A public petition circulating on the Internet demanding an investigation into possible failures by the authorities has gathered about 270 signatures.Local residents said they had been without the support of firefighters for hours as their homes burned. Many blamed depopulation of villages that left wooded areas untended. << Previous PostNext Post >> Portugal’s deadliest fire still rages after 62 people killed By: Axel BuggeSource: Reuters Share Tags: Portugal, Travel Alert Monday, June 19, 2017 last_img read more
