UNITED STATES: ‘ DETERGENT PODS CAN POISON OR KILL A CHILD SAYS NEW REPORT ‘

#AceNewsServices – UNITED STATES – Nov.10 – U.S. poison control centres received more than 17,000 calls – or about one per hour – about children who’d been exposed to chemicals in laundry detergent pods in 2012 and 2013, a new study found. 

Over 700 of the children were hospitalized, and one child died, researchers said.

“This caught us by surprise,” said Dr. Gary Smith, the study’s lead author from the Centre for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.

“I’ve seen these cases come through the hospital’s emergency department,” he said. “I was aware of the case reports, but I haven’t seen anyone pull together the numbers.”

Laundry detergent pods were introduced to the U.S. market in 2012. The all-in-one packets contain detergent that’s released in the wash, so users don’t have to measure detergent in a cup.

Smith and his colleagues write in the journal Pediatrics that doctors have previously reported on kids who’ve eaten or burst the pods with serious consequences, such as being hospitalized and put on a ventilator for several days.

To get a better understanding of how many children are being exposed and possibly harmed by the pods, the researchers analyzed data from 2012 and 2013 from the National Poison Data System, which catalogs calls made to U.S. poison control centers.

Overall, the centres received 17,230 calls about children younger than six who were somehow exposed to the liquid in laundry detergent pods.

That’s roughly four calls per 10,000 children in that age group, according to the researchers.

About a third of the calls involved children between the ages of one and two years.

“This is an age group that has newfound mobility,” Smith said. “They’re curious and they don’t sense danger.” Children may think the colourful pods are candy or filled with juice, he said.

About 80 percent of all calls involved children swallowing the pods or their liquids.

In 2012, for example, Tide said it would add a safety latch to its detergent pods, after a child was hospitalized for swallowing the contents. (See Reuters story of May 25, 2012, here:reut.rs/1sua9AJ.)

Smith does not think any current packaging is truly child resistant, however.

“These are continuing examples of a systemic problem we have in this country,” he said. “It’s that our products are designed by adults for the use and convenience of adults.”

NIGERIA: ‘ SUICIDE BOMBER DETONATES EXPLOSION AT SCHOOL DRESSED IN SCHOOL UNIFORM – REPORTS ‘

#AceBreakingNews – NIGERIA – Nov.10 – Several dozen students were killed Monday when a suicide bomber detonated an explosion at a school in north-east Nigeria, according to media reports.

The Associated Press reported the bomber was disguised in a school uniform.

The suicide bomb attack killed 47 students and injured 79 others on Monday in north-east Nigeria, AFP said.“There was an explosion detonated by a suicide bomber” when students gathered for morning assembly at their school in Potiskum, Yobe state, according to national police spokesman Emmanuel Ojukwu.

However, the Associated Press said soldiers who rushed to the scene were chased away by a crowd throwing stones and shouting that they are angry at the military’s inability to halt a 5-year-old insurgency by the Islamist extremist group Boko Haram.

The attack so far has nobody claiming responsibility but was likely carried out by Islamist extremists from the Boko Haram group, he added, who have been more active lately.

ISRAEL: ‘ NETANYAHU JUSTIFIES POLICE SHOOTING OF MAN WHO ATTACKED POLICE CAR WITH A KNIFE ‘

#AceNewsServices – Nov.10 –  The police shot and killed a 22-year-old man from the northern Arab village of Kafr Kana in the early hours of Saturday morning, after he allegedly attacked a police car with a knife.

However, CCTV footage may contradict the officers’ statement that a warning shot was fired in the air before the man was fatally wounded you can judge for yourselves. 

A large protest was held in the Galilee village on Saturday to protest the shooting.

At its climax, clashes erupted between stone throwers and the large police force stationed nearby. A general strike among Israeli Arabs was announced by The Higher Arab Monitoring Committee, which called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to fire Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch.

However, Netanyahu backed the officers and harshly criticized the protesters in Kafr Kana. “Israel is a state of law,” he said. “We won’t tolerate disturbances and riots.We will take action against stone throwers, those who block traffic arteries, and those who call for establishing a Palestinian state in place of the State of Israel.

Whoever does not respect Israeli law will be punished to the fullest extent.

I will direct the interior minister to consider stripping the citizenship of those who call for the destruction of the State of Israel.”

YEMEN: ‘ GOVERNMENT IS SET TO BE SWORN INTO POWER DESPITE GPC OPPOSITION ‘

#AceWorldNews – YEMEN – Nov.09 – A new Yemeni government is set to be sworn in Sunday, despite opposition from the General People’s Congress (GPC), the ruling party in the country’s parliament led by former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, and the Houthis, a powerful Shia rebel group that controls much of south Yemen.

After President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi announced his new government on Friday, the Houthis and GPC rejected it, with Saleh criticizing it as “unrepresentative.” GPC leaders announced they would pull their members out of the new cabinet, and have ousted President Hadi from the party leadership.

' General People's Congress in Benghazi '

Saleh, who is thought to have tacitly supported the Houthi insurgency, accused Hadi of soliciting UN sanctions against him and two Houthi leaders for attempting to destabilize the country.

After seizing the capital, Sanaa, in September, the Houthis demanded that Hadi appoint a new government, criticizing the regime for its close cooperation with a conservative Sunni Islamist party.

Meanwhile, sectarian violence between Houthis and Sunni Al-Qaeda militias continues to ravage the country.

On Saturday, Al-Qaeda took responsibility for killing dozens of Houthis in twin attacks in central Yemen.

MEXICO CITY: ‘ PROTESTERS STORM NATIONAL PALACE OVER ABDUCTION AND MURDER OF 43 STUDENTS ‘

#AceNewsServices – MEXICO CITY – Nov.09 – This is a follow-up from my post yesterday and thanks to RT and their team: A group of protesters in Mexico City have tried to break into the National Palace and have set its front doors on fire in response to government’s alleged role in the abduction and murder of 43 students who went missing in September.

The rally’s participants used a metal police barricade as a battering ram, trying to storm the National Palace in Mexico City, which is mostly used for ceremonies involving President Enrique Pena Nieto.

https://vine.co/v/OeLqX3rDd2w/embed/simple

Having failed to break into the National Palace, protesters set its front doors on fire. They managed to damage the entrance to the building, but were unable to get inside and were eventually driven away by police.

As the demonstrators were trying to forcefully break into the National Palace, another large crowd was protesting in front of the attorney general’s office.

There have been reports of injuries and arrests, as police dispersed the raging crowds in Mexico City.

The storming of the National Palace came as the climax of Saturday’s mass rally which was inspired by Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam’s revelation Friday that three Guerreros Unidos gang members in custody had confessed to killing the students and incinerating their bodies, and had claimed that the young men were handed over to them by the police.

Infuriated by alleged police involvement in the abduction of students, hundreds of protesters on Saturday set cars on fire, painted graffiti and threw rocks at government offices.

“We are asking the same thing as usual. We want to see our comrades alive,” a masked student told AFP as others chanted, “They took them alive, we want them back alive.” The students went missing on September 26, when they clashed with police during a protest in the southwestern town of Iguala. After police detained them and took them away, the students were not seen again.

Protesters wearing masks outside the Guerrero state building in Chilpancingo tossed firebombs and torched around a dozen vehicles, including trucks and a federal police vehicle.

Besides the allegations that the students were led to their eventual deaths by law enforcement agents, Mexicans were furious with the Attorney General’s remarks during the press conference. After an hour of fielding questions, Jesus Murillo Karam abruptly signaled for an end to the press conference by turning away from reporters and saying, “Ya me canse” or “I’ve had enough.”

The phrase immediately exploded on social networks while protesters used the phrase to draw graffiti as a sign of dissent. “Enough, I’m tired of Murillo Karam,” says one. Another asks, “If you’re tired, why don’t you resign?”

Others vented their frustration with messages such as “Enough, I’m tired of living in a narco state” or “Enough, I’m tired of corrupt politicians.”

In taped confessions, gang members said they took students to a landfill in the town of Cocula aboard two trucks, where they killed them and spent 14 hours burning their bodies and belongings.

In connection with the massacre, authorities said they have already arrested 74 people, including the ousted mayor, Jose Luis Abarca, his wife Maria de los Angeles Pineda, 36 police officers and several Guerreros Unidos gang members.

Meanwhile, the parents of the missing students say they will not accept they are dead until independent Argentine forensic experts deliver DNA results. An Austrian university is helping identify the remains through a DNA test, but the chief prosecutor added that there was “a lot of evidence… that could indicate it was them.”

She will be joined by political leaders and veterans for a ceremony at the Cenotaph in London – the focal point of the UK’s Remembrance Sunday services.

Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast will be among the places paying their respects.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the start of World War One, 70 years since the D-Day landings and the end of Britain’s conflict in Afghanistan.

David Cameron said the anniversaries made the commemorations “particularly poignant”.

Scotland Yard said there would be “appropriate and proportionate” policing at the Cenotaph after four men were arrested on Thursday in west London and High Wycombe in connection with an alleged Islamist terror plot on British soil.

In Glasgow, a two-minute silence will be observed at the cenotaph in George Square, while in Edinburgh a parade will take place from the castle esplanade to the city’s stone of remembrance.

Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond will be among those laying wreaths, and a ceremonial gun will be fired.

Meanwhile, the National Secular Society has written to the government asking it to review the role of the Church of England at the national ceremony of remembrance, which it argues should be equally inclusive of all citizens, regardless of religion and belief.

The society believes the commemoration should be redesigned to make it an inclusive national event, not led by a single Christian denomination.

BARCELONA: ‘ DEFIANT CATALONIA TO HOLD REFERENDUM INDEPENDENCE POLL ‘

  • Red and yellow striped flags can now be found all over Catalonia, hanging on balconies, houses and official buildings. Many of the them carry the blue triangle with the white star – a call for independence.

There is also a few signs reading “votar es normal!” (voting is normal) as a protest to the fact that Catalonia is not able to hold a referendum on independence with the blessing of Madrid nor a “consultation” on the question.

The 9N – as the consultative and non-legally-binding vote is called – serves to give the Catalan authorities a better idea of how big support for independence is across Catalonia.

During the last three nights at ten o’clock, the evening silence has been broken for five minutes by the banging on pots from balconies all over Barcelona – another protest to the latest setback for the pseudo-referendum.

At the end of September, Catalan president Artur Mas signed a decree calling for a consultation asking Catalans whether they want independence.

‘ PROTESTERS CLASH WITH POLICE OVER DAILY INJUSTICE’S IN THE MILLION MASK MARCH ‘

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON D.C – Nov.08 – An intense video highlights the level of unrest among a growing group of Americans and the divide between them and the police.

Hundreds of protesters stormed the capital Tuesday in an effort to voice their concerns about the encroaching police state. Some protesters were captured on video raiding the FBI building and backing police into a corner. 

According to News2Share who took the video below:

Police clashed with rioters Tuesday participating in the “Million Mask March” in Washington DC.

In one incident at the Reagen Building, a protester had a scuffle with a police officer, which ended up with him being tased onto the ground.

A friend of his then tried to get away, and was also tased, but he managed to escape the taser and sprint across the street before officers on foot and from a vehicle were able to surround him. When other protesters surrounded the arresting officer, he threatened them with pepper spray while bringing the suspect into custody.

Note: Video Filmed and edited by Ford Fischer, with a short clip of the initial scuffle submitted by Ben Cutler.

The people in the US are becoming fed up with the daily injustices.

As the ruling class grabs more power, wealth, and privilege, more and more Americans are taking to the streets.

DISGRACEFUL: ‘ FLORIDA POLICE HOUND 90 YEAR-OLD CHEF WHO FEEDS THE HOMELESS ‘

#AceNewsServices – FLORIDA – Nov.08 – This is a story l covered last week over a change of law in Florida: About a 90-year-old chef called Arnold Abbott who has hauled pans filled with roast chicken and cheese-covered potatoes onto a south Florida beach park to feed hundreds of homeless people.

For his good deeds, Abbott finds himself facing up to two months in jail and hundreds of dollars in fines after new laws that restrict public feeding of the homeless went into effect in Fort Lauderdale earlier this year.

“I’ve been fighting for the underdog all my life, so this is nothing new,” Abbott said.

He was first cited last Sunday, along with two clergymen and a volunteer from his nonprofit, Love Thy Neighbor.

On Wednesday, several police cars waited for Abbott at a downtown Fort Lauderdale park, and officers pulled aside the frail man, clad in a white chef’s coat, soon after the first plates were ready to be served.

“The ordinance does not prohibit feeding the homeless; it regulates the activity in order to ensure it is carried out in an appropriate, organized, clean and healthy manner,” Fort Lauderdale Mayor John P. Seiler said in a statement.

Abbott moved to Florida from Massachusetts in 1970 and was a civil rights activist and wholesale jewelry salesman. He and his wife first began feeding the homeless on their own in 1979.

He started the foundation and feeding full time in 1991 after his wife died, in a tribute to her memory.
