Petroleum analyst optimistic for the price of oil after government moves
CALGARY (660 NEWS) – The markets are now open and we will soon see if the Alberta government’s actions to cut oil production in the province will help with the price of oil.On Sunday, Rachel Notley announced an 8.7 per cent cutback on production across the province.Dan McTeague is a petroleum analyst.He believes whether or not the government made this move, there would be job losses.“For many companies, this may not be the outcome that they wanted, but spreading around the pain seems to be the only thing you could do with an environment where doing nothing would only lead to further catastrophe.”While this was certainly not the government’s first choice of action, McTeague believes it is the right course of action.“I think jobs would be affected either way,” he said. “We have to look at the absolute carnage in jobs that have taken place up to now. I think it’s short-term pain for long-term gain.”He notes the short term success on the markets will also be heavily impacted by some global moves.He sees the thawing of the trade war between the U.S. and China as a major factor.“There is also a likelihood that OPEC will cut back dramatically on production along with Russia.”
Number of Eritrean asylumseekers in Europe soars from past year – UN
Thus far in 2014, nearly 37,000 Eritreans have sought refuge in Europe, compared with almost 13,000 during the same period last year, UNHCR said in a press release today.Most of the Eritreans arriving in Europe have initially travelled via Ethiopia and Sudan, Mr. Edwards said. Those countries have also experienced a dramatic increase in arrivals, including large numbers of unaccompanied children.“Most asylum requests have been lodged in Sweden, Germany and Switzerland, with the vast majority of the Eritreans having arrived by boat across the Mediterranean,” a UNHCR spokesperson, Adrian Edwards, said in a press briefing in Geneva earlier today.According to UNHCR’s office in Italy, 22 per cent of the people arriving by boat are Eritrean, a total of nearly 34,000 people this year. That makes Eritreans the second-largest group – after Syrians – to arrive in Italy by boat, the spokesperson noted. Furthermore, more than 5,000 Eritreans crossed into Ethiopia during the month of October alone, compared with the average of some 2,000 arrivals per month since the beginning of the year, Mr. Edwards said. About 90 per cent of those who arrived in Ethiopia in October were between 18 and 24 years old, and some 78 children arrived on their own, without an adult family member. More than 1,200 Eritreans arrived in Ethiopia during the first week of November, the spokesperson added. In Sudan, UNHCR has also been witnessing a marked increase in the number of arrivals since the beginning of 2014, Mr. Edwards said. He noted that more than 10,700 Eritreans have sought refuge in Sudan this year, an average of more than 1,000 arrivals per month.In total, there are currently more than 216,000 Eritrean refugees in Ethiopia and Sudan, according to UNHCR. Sudan has been hosting Eritrean refugees for more than 40 years, while Eritreans started to arrive in Ethiopia in 2002, after the end of the conflict between the two countries.Recent arrivals have told UNHCR staff that they are fleeing an intensified recruitment drive into the mandatory and often open-ended national service.In addition, growing numbers of the predominantly young refugees in Ethiopia and Sudan have become frustrated with the shortage of services and absence of self-reliance opportunities in the camps, Mr. Edwards said. “We are extremely concerned that the refugees crossing into Ethiopia will eventually try to move on,” he said. “There is a need to boost education and livelihood opportunities for the refugees in the countries neighbouring Eritrea to prevent people moving on simply out of desperation.”At the same time, UNHCR is also calling on Europe to step up efforts to provide credible legal alternatives to dangerous voyages, to protect people from the risks of traveling with smugglers. The collective response needs to maintain a strong capacity to rescue people at sea and increase safer ways for refugees to find safety, including enhanced resettlement, other forms of humanitarian admission and private sponsorship schemes, the spokesperson stressed. In addition, UNHCR is calling on European governments to do more to facilitate family reunification and use programmes such as student or employment visas to benefit refugees, Mr. Edwards concluded.
Rattling the All Blacks and GAA gold I was there in 2013
PHEW! That was some year of sport. Some of our writers get in the way-back machine to relive some of their highlights of 2013. Paul FennessyWhen Dublin won their first Leinster hurling title in 52 years at Croke Park. It was a great game, with Dublin dominating the early stages before Galway threatened a dramatic late comeback with two quick-fire goals. However, the Dubs held out for a deserved victory amid an emotional finale – it was obvious how much the victory meant to the players and a tearful Anthony Daly, while the game also ultimately became an integral part of one of the most exciting and unpredictable years in hurling in recent memory.Paul HosfordSeptember 8. Croke Park. Cork and Clare played out a thrilling All-Ireland Hurling Final. I was at the very last row in the upper Hogan and felt the game slipping away from us on numerous occasions. Suddenly, a burst of goals had us back alive and, for a glorious two minutes, I thought we had it won. Then Domhnall O’Donovan popped up. And…Niall KellyI’ve never been at a match like the All-Ireland football semi final. Rivalries like Dublin v Kerry carry so much baggage it’s not unusual for the anticipation to dwarf the event, but not this time. The two powerhouses stood toe-to-toe, both playing the game the only way they know and neither willing to give an inch. In 20 years’ time, people will still be watching this, reliving the majesty of Gooch and the sheer determination of Michael Darragh MacAuley. It was just special.Murray KinsellaIreland’s near-victory against the All Blacks was the best sporting event I was at this year. The atmosphere, for the first time at the Aviva, was incredible and the game itself was of the highest quality. Ireland were superb for much of the game, but the All Blacks stole it at the death with that skillful, composed passage of play. The performance set a standard for the Ireland team to repeat in 2014.Patrick McCarryBetween Leinster and Ireland, Brian O’Driscoll has played 11 home matches this season. I was fortunate enough to be at six of those games. I was at Lansdowne Road to see him take to hefty blows yet some how still be on the pitch in the 13-13 draw with France. I heard the ‘one more year’ chants as he scored against Biarritz. I was back at rugby HQ to witness the between the legs scoop against Samoa and the humbling against the Aussies a week later. The game that stood out, however, was Cardiff Blues at the RDS in September. O’Driscoll played with the freedom of a lad enjoying a hit out on the local green. A joy to behold.YouTube credit: RaboDirect PRO12 Sinead O’CarrollWhen Clare hurlers returned to Croke Park for their semi-final against Limerick. On a personal note, it was brilliant to see my mother – a Clare woman – see her team back on top and reaching All-Ireland finals. The day topped off by sitting inches from both Joe Canning and Anthony Daly.PS. If the last 20 seconds of the All-Blacks v Ireland had gone differently, so might this entry.Cork manager Jimmy Barry-Murphy watches on during the first final. Pic: INPHO/James CrombieFintan O’TooleCroke Park, 8 September, 2013. The drawn All-Ireland hurling final concluded in an amazing fashion with a relentless series of twists and turns. Anthony Nash struck a goal, Clare hit a few points, Patrick Cronin bagged another goal, Patrick Horgan lobbed a superb point before Domhnall O’Donovan became the most famous scoring corner-back in hurling history. It was draining, riveting and made for the best sporting event I was at this year.Adrian RussellCork’s tense All-Ireland semi-final win over Dublin will be remembered by Blues as the one that got away. Patrick Horgan’s opportunistic goal got the Rebels back into a game that was going away from them but Ryan O’Dwyer’s controversial sending off gave the Leinster champions too much to do. A thrilling game in a ridiculous summer.What was the stand-out event you were at this year? Fergie ‘won’ £50k on Who Wants to be a Millionaire… how would you have done with his questions?
Next generation carries on the olive tradition
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram About 170 Greek Australian primary school students couldn’t have asked for a cooler day at school, as they journeyed to Victoria’s Red Hill region for a Greek packed day last weekend.The special excursion, organised by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development in cooperation with the Modern Greek Teachers’ Association, had both celebrity pulling power and local appeal. Hosted at the grounds of the local Greek Orthodox church of Panagia Kamariani, the event had TV journalist Helen Kapalos and chef George Calombaris on hand to make sure the students learned as much as they could about Greek culture and the theme of the day – olives and olive oil. Students were able to participate in workshops and play some outdoor games, while local priest Eleftherios Tatsis hosted the kids in the small church for a theology lesson. While most were happy playing with their olive tree branch wreaths, the students were also presented with their own bottles of olive oil to use at home and carry on the Greek food tradition.
Lutter contre le manque deau en récoltant celle du brouillard avec du
Lutter contre le manque d’eau en récoltant celle du brouillard avec du cotonAlors que l’eau fait encore défaut à près de 20% de la population mondiale (1,2 milliard de personnes), des chercheurs viennent de mettre au point un matériau capable de récupérer l’eau du brouillard.Les réserves des nappes phréatiques fournissent entre 25 et 40% de notre eau potable mais elles tendent peu à peu à s’épuiser. Alors que l’eau devient un véritable “or bleu” les recherches de sources d’eau douce se multiplient. En 1990, Alain Gioda, hydrologue à l’IRD (Institut de recherche pour le développement), avait ainsi travaillé à la mise au point de filets permettant aux gouttelettes de se condenser et de tomber dans des gouttières. Dans plusieurs pays, cette technique permet de récolter 30 litres d’eau par mètres carrés de filet. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Elle présente néanmoins l’inconvénient d’être très dépendante du vent et ne peut donc pas être employée partout. C’est ainsi qu’une innovation a vu le jour grâce à une équipe de chercheurs d’Eindhoven, associée à une équipe de Hong Kong. Ces scientifiques ont mis au point un matériau (actuellement en cours d’expérimentation) alliant du coton et un polymère hydrophile (le poly-N-isopropylacrylamide appelé également PNIPAAm), visant à récupérer l’eau du brouillard. Les résultats, publiés dans la revue Advance Materials, montrent qu’en appliquant sur le tissu de coton un polymère, sa capacité d’absorption augmente considérablement. Alors qu’en temps normal il est capable d’absorber l’équivalent de 18% de son poids, ce pourcentage atteint les 340% grâce au polymère. Après cela, ce matériau est alors capable de libérer toute l’eau qu’il a absorbée lorsque la température augmente. En devenant totalement hydrophobe à 34°C, l’eau ne peut plus être absorbée, rapporte Techno-science.net. Des propriétés jugées particulièrement prometteuses. En outre, contrairement à l’autre technologie développée, ce coton fonctionne indépendamment du vent et présente la particularité de pouvoir être mis en place directement aux endroits choisis, comme sur un sol cultivé par exemple. Les chercheurs souhaitent donc maintenant poursuivre leurs tests pour parvenir à augmenter la capacité d’absorption de ce coton et le faire peut-être devenir une véritable source d’eau douce.Le 16 février 2013 à 16:26 • Maxime Lambert
TCI Hospitals vying for medical tourism clients in Canada
TCI Hospital Gets New Executive Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Providenciales, 03 Sept 2015 – Despite competition from regional medical hubs like Cuba and the Dominican Republic, the TCI Hospitals were present and accounted for at the recent Destination Health expo held in Montreal, Canada. The medical tourism trade show in late August, which was said to be the first of its kind event held on Canadian soil allowed medical services companies to vie for the over $400 million dollars Canadians reportedly spend on health care outside of their country every year; Destination Health says some 800,000 Canadian travel for care. Magnetic Media spoke to PR executive at the TCI Hospitals Takara Bain who revealed the strongest selling point for the TCI three person delegation, is the fact that Providenciales is the World’s #1 Island. The fact was featured on the hospitals showcase set up at the expo where Interhealth Canada was named as a sponsor and the trip from the Turks and Caicos was funded by InterHealth Canada Global, 100% according to Ms. Bain. Already knee and hip replacement surgeries are being done at our two hospitals thanks to a liaison the TCI Hospitals have with Global Med Choice. When asked if the local facilities could spare the beds for the visiting patients, Bain explained that the current out of town patients are usually shorter stays at the hospital during their treatment with longer stays at any TCI resort, where the patient’s recovery time is also spent. Admittedly it is new territory for the TCI Hospitals; the plan is to attend Destination Health again next year.

Skip Area 51 Raid this animal shelter for tinfoil hat wearing dogs
In a Facebook post put up Friday, OKC Animal Welfare in Oklahoma City wrote, “We have great animals ready to protect you from the Area 51 aliens,” adding, “adoption isn’t that far out of this world!”But what really sells the shelter’s post is that it includes photos of multiple adoptable dogs (and one cat) wearing the famed tin-foil hats associated with conspiracy theorists. The shelter has also decorated the animal photos with sparkling spacey sprinkles, and little cartoony aliens. The greatest alien encounter movies, ranked More on Area 51 Post a comment The photos include 3-year-old Piper, a snuggly pointer and boxer mix who looks quite proud of her spacey tin-foil antenna; 3-month-old Sam, a sad-looking lab mix; Lady, a 3-year-old lab and shepherd mix who makes her alien headwear look dignified; and an unnamed striped kitten who wore his tin-foil as a collar instead of an antenna hat.”We are super-excited about the response and the exposure it has given our shelter pets!” a spokesperson told me. “This was an idea from our adoption coordinator and we never expected it to go so viral. The summer months are so tough for shelters all over the country and we are so happy to bring attention to this during this busy time.” Facebook users found the idea, like outer space itself, to be totally far out.”Wonderful & creative pictures!” wrote Angela Merriman. “You all do a fantastic job in terrible circumstances.”And Adrian Stiegler wrote, “I wept a little inside seeing this post.

Ultranationalist Myanmar monk freed from prison
Ultra-nationalist monk Pamaukkha (C) talks to the media after being released from Insein prison in Yangon on 9 March 2018. AFPAn ultra-nationalist Myanmar monk was defiant upon his release from prison on Friday after serving time for an anti-Rohingya protest in 2016, a rare punishment handed to one of the country’s hardline Buddhist clergymen.Parmaukkha, who served a three-month jail term for inciting unrest, has helped peddle a fiery brand of Buddhist nationalism and Islamophobia in Myanmar, a country accused of waging an ethnic cleansing campaign against Rohingya Muslims.The monk was arrested in November over a rally he held outside the US Embassy in Yangon in April 2016 to protest against America’s use of the word “Rohingya”.The Buddhist-majority nation refuses to recognise the Rohingya as an ethnic group, referring pejoratively to the community as “Bengalis” and insisting they are illegal immigrants from Bangladesh.The jail time appears to have done little to dampen the resolve of the abbot, who declared himself unrepentant upon his release.“There is no Rohingya ethnic group among the 135 ethnic groups in Myanmar,” he told reporters after returning to his Yangon monastery on Friday.“The person who made the mistake was the ambassador of the United States (to Myanmar),” he said, referring to the embassy’s use of the word Rohingya, which had sparked him and hundreds of others to protest.The influential monk was released from Yangon’s Insein prison at dawn to the cheers of several dozen supporters who scattered petals in front of him as he left the jail.‘Buddhist Bin Laden’Anti-Muslim hate speech aimed the Rohingya has been brewing in Myanmar for several years, often spilling over into bouts of bloodshed.But hatreds have surged in the wake of a ruthless military crackdown that has forced 700,000 Rohingya out of the country since August.The UN says the campaign amounts to ethnic cleansing and possible genocide.But many in the Buddhist majority support the crackdown, which the army says was needed to crush a Rohingya militant uprising.Over the past year religious authorities have taken some steps to curb the influence of ultra-nationalist monks like Parmaukkha.Ultra-nationalist monk Pamaukkha (C) walks out with his supporters after being released from Insein prison in Yangon on 9 March 2018. AFPHis release coincides with the end of a year-long public speaking ban on Wirathu—another firebrand monk known as the face of Myanmar’s Buddhist nationalist movement.Wirathu, once dubbed the “Buddhist Bin Laden”, was barred from giving public sermons last year by a council of senior monks who said he had “repeatedly delivered hate speech against religions to cause communal strife”.But he has flouted the ban on several occasions.Wirathu was also recently kicked off Facebook, where he had amassed a huge following with incendiary anti-Muslim posts.The social media giant said it took down his page in January in accordance with a policy that prohibits “people dedicated to promoting hatred and violence against others”.
Stigma or separation The painful choice for Myanmars single mothers
This photo taken on 19 October 2018 shows radiologist Myat Sandar Thant (L) handing over an abandoned baby to an official of the Social Welfare Department in Yangon. Photo: AFPEight months pregnant, shamed by her family and shunned by the father of her child, Aye Mar has accepted she will have to give up her baby to an orphanage in Myanmar, a country where single mothers are ostracised and deemed a “disgrace”.For now, she is taking refuge in a house in a leafy suburban Yangon street, away from the disparaging eyes of her neighbours and the chastisement of her aunts, her only family.Her aunts were “furious” when the 19-year-old told them she had fallen in love with the water delivery boy and become pregnant.”They brought my boyfriend home and asked him to marry me. He said he would but then he ran off,” she told AFP.Her aunts ordered Aye Mar (not her real name) to give up the baby and brought her to the Myint Mo Myittar Single Mothers’ Foundation, where she will give birth.”I want to take care of my baby but it is impossible,” she said.She is one of more than 100 girls and women to pass through the doors of the centre, which provides a home for those in the last few months of their pregnancy and for 45 days after giving birth.One expectant mother is a 12-year-old rape victim, now six months pregnant.Radiologist Myat Sandar Thant set up the foundation two years ago, appalled by the suicide of a patient who could not face the shame of pregnancy.Most women arrive intent on leaving their babies for her to hand over to the state-run orphanage system.But the majority end up taking their children home, small victories in the battle against conservative values, which place the weight of responsibility for unwanted pregnancies on women.”When they get here, they see other people in the same situation as them and they start feeling better about themselves,” she explains.Those who do relinquish their babies are usually forced to do so by their parents or other family members.ILLEGAL ABORTIONSWith only a handful of such organisations across Myanmar, many girls and women opt for illegal abortions.In the country of some 50 million, women’s rights group IPAS estimates that 246,000 unsafe abortions are undertaken every year.Myanmar has the second-highest maternal death rate in the region.There are no official statistics on the number of unmarried mothers in a country where data records are patchy and delicate social issues are often swept under the carpet.But 2014 census data suggests almost 50,000 15-19 year-olds give birth each year.An unplanned pregnancy can be devastating for single women, who are often shunned by family and community, with little chance of support from the father.”In most communities, pregnant adolescent girls are told to drop out of school,” says Yadanar, a youth programme analyst at the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) who goes by one name.Family planning clinics are few — particularly in rural areas — or extremely limited in what they can offer.”The services need to be more welcoming to the youth, without any judgement, without stigma, without discrimination, keeping their confidentiality,” Yadanar says.GLIMMERS OF HOPEOne in six women do not have access to the contraception they want, according to UNFPA.Although sex education is on the school curriculum teachers often ignore it, while many parents avoid ‘The Talk’ either out of embarrassment or a hope that silence offers protection.A group of tech entrepreneurs are hoping an app for young women, brimming with beauty tips, fashion — and information about reproductive health — might help educate and break down stigma in the country, where smartphone penetration was at 80 percent last year.The prototype of “Pyo Pyo May”, meaning “young lady”, was well received during a trial last month in a Yangon park.”I just get sex education from Facebook,” said 30-year-old Thazin Oo, too embarrassed to elaborate any further.There are some signs that attitudes in Myanmar are slowly changing.Pop star Athen Cho Swe chose to go public this year after secretly giving birth as a single mother in Bangkok.She now posts updates for her fans, including a recent, self-filmed video of her playing with her baby girl.”I thought people would criticise me,” she told local media in August. “But people love my daughter.”Prospects are less rosy for babies born into poorer households.Doctor Myat Sandar Thant has the grim task of handing over unwanted babies born in her centre to a government-run Yangon orphanage.Myanmar’s strict adoption regulations mean most infants here will spend their whole childhood in state care.”This is the best that is available in Myanmar,” she says. “But the children lose their sparkling eyes.”

Uruguay star Luis Suárez will not start against Costa Rica Can Ticos
FORTALEZA, Brazil — Uruguay coach Óscar Tabárez said he won’t rush Luis Suárez back from a knee injury for his side’s World Cup opener against Costa Rica in Fortaleza on Saturday. Tabárez revealed his starting line-up Friday afternoon. While Suárez is absent, Tabárez said he hasn’t ruled the star striker out as a sub for late in the match.Suárez had an operation to repair damage to the meniscus in his left knee just three weeks ago and Tabárez is wary of throwing him straight back into the side with seemingly tougher tests against England and Italy to come in Group D.“Yesterday afternoon Suárez did the most important thing in training, which is play football,” he said. “We don’t want to pressure him in any way, though, we have prepared for this game without Luis. We are very happy with his recovery, but we need to be cautious. There is still a day to go until the game and that for me is a long time because many things can happen, but if nothing changes then I have decided on the team.”Tabárez confirmed that in the absence of Suárez, Diego Forlán will partner Edison Cavani in attack. Cristian Stuani will start ahead of Gastón Ramírez on the right.Uruguay were the surprise squad of the World Cup four years ago when they reached the semifinals before narrowly losing out to the Netherlands. Tabárez believes that experience and winning the Copa America in 2011 should make them an even more formidable side this time round.“In 2010 many of these players were 22 or 23, now they have matured,” he said.On paper Costa Rica appear to be the potential whipping boys of the group up against three former World Cup winners.And Uruguayan goalkeeper Fernando Muslera admitted they need to get off to a good start to ease the pressure.“We have the ability to go far, but we don’t want to assume the role of favorites because it has never suited us well,” the goalie said. “The first game is always difficult. A good result takes a weight off your shoulders and allows you to look forward.” Facebook Comments Related posts:Uruguay star Luis Suarez could miss Costa Rica match after knee operation Injured Uruguay star Suárez in camp; England crushes Peru; key Italian player breaks leg Luis Suárez bites again as Uruguay eliminates Italy Costa Rica not planning to play injured Uruguayan superstar Luis Suárez

Deputy minister says tourism aim is to keep numbers steady
The goal for this year’s tourist season is to remain at the high levels recorded last year, achievable through cooperation within the tourist industry and appropriate marketing in various markets, deputy tourism minister Savvas Perdios said on Friday.Speaking after the ITB travel show in Berlin, where Cyprus had a stand, Perdios said that in 2018 the island saw record tourist arrivals of almost four million, while revenues reached €2.7 billion.We should not expect the surge in tourism that has marked the last few years to continue growing in the coming tourist season, Perdios said, noting that if we manage to retain tourism levels to those of last year, we can rest assured that the high figures of recent years have not been circumstantial.Perdios added that this year, tourists may seek cheaper destinations, asserting that we should not rush to lower prices as we wish to keep a certain quality standard.On Thursday, Perdios held a tripartite meeting with the tourist ministers of Greece and Egypt. Paths of closer cooperation between the tourist sectors of the three countries were discussed, Perdios said.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityEarthquake coverage that comes with optionsCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip 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 ArePopularEverythingUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoArgaka mukhtar stops conservationists againUndoby Taboolaby Taboola

Haspel has a long history at the CIA where she’s served since 1985 but her connections to an agency “black site” where detainees were tortured and a decision within the CIA to destroy evidence of interrogations has led to fierce backlash from outside watchers On Thursday a diverse collection of more than 40 national advocacy and civil liberties groups sent a letter to all 100 members of Senate calling on them to oppose Haspel’s confirmation The groups say they have “grave concerns” about Haspel’s role in the US torture program and believe that any vote related to her nomination would be seen as a “referendum on torture” “Some answer these grave concerns by claiming Ms Haspel is a decorated intelligence professional experienced and well-respected at the CIA That may all be true” the letter reads “But responsibility for torture is an extraordinary moral offense that ordinary kinds of qualifications simply cannot overcome” Dozens of Virginian elected officials joined with faith leaders and torture victim advocates to send a similar letter to Warner and Sen Tim Kaine also of Virginia “Endorsing Ms Haspel would reward torture and send a disastrous message the world over including to survivors of torture that there is no accountability whatsoever for those who commit these grave human rights violations” they wrote Two dozen torture rehabilitation centers have also signed on to a letter to oppose her nomination In that document the groups detail the suffering torture victims endure including chronic pain sleep disorders and depression “That is the legacy of torture the torture in which Ms Haspel reportedly was intimately involved and the torture Ms Haspel reportedly participated in covering up through the destruction of videotape evidence” the letter reads Scott Roehm the director of the Center for Victims of Torture‘s DC office says the opposition to her nomination is diverse and widespread groups and groups like his will continue to pressure lawmakers to reject Haspel’s nomination in the lead up to the hearing “The public expects that the Senate isn’t going to promote to lead the CIA somebody who is deeply complicit in torture” says Roehm “The closer the hearing and nomination draw the more that message is going to be clear” Haspel’s confirmation hearing had been gearing up to be a contentious one already Senators have expressed concern about the role she played in destroying torture-related evidence since her name was first floated Several lawmakers have said they plan to press her about her links to the US torture program in the public forum Others have called for the declassification of records about her background A trio of Democratic senators on the Intelligence Committee have repeatedly asked the CIA director to declassify the material "In the absence of any meaningful declassification of her career this public campaign on behalf of Ms Haspel does a great disservice to the American people” the Senators wrote in a recent letter The senators said the more they review classified information the more “disturbed” they are about Haspel’s actions and the CIA’s unwillingness to let the public see for itself “Under these circumstances it is impossible for the Senate to properly fulfill its constitutional obligation to advise and consent on her nomination" write Democrats Dianne Feinstein of California Martin Heinrich of New Mexico and Ron Wyden of Oregon Roehm agrees that the information should be declassified but says “we know enough and Senators should know enough at this point to oppose her nomination She was complicit in torture” Write to Maya Rhodan at mayarhodan@timecom where he implored lawmakers to transcend partisan divisions"Poochigian The hack "could potentially impact any
