Family living on shore of Frobisher Bay loses everything in fire

14 Oct 2019

first_imgJason, Elizabeth and their son are living in a tent in Iqaluit. (Submitted photo)Kathleen MartensAPTN NewsA homeless family in Iqaluit lost everything they owned last weekend when the beach shack they were squatting in burned to the ground.It was a huge blow for the struggling trio that moved to the Arctic capital from Pangnirtung about 10 months ago to escape what they said is escalating violence in the hamlet.“We didn’t want him seeing that all the time,” father Jason Kakee said of his 13-year-old son.“There was too much violent crime up there.”The family, which includes mother Elizabeth, confirms what Pangnirtung officials announced in May that the community was awash in assaults, arson and suicide attempts.Hamlet officials wrote to the territorial government for help and revealed shocking statistics: 12 young people tried to kill themselves, 55 people called the poison control centre, and a teenager fired a gun 11 times in the middle of a September night.“Violent events in Pang have now become a daily occurrence,” said the letter from the municipal council. “Bootlegging is rampant and uncontrolled.“If adequate urgency response services are not provided immediately, more and more people in Pangnirtung will be physically injured, emotionally traumatized and more lives will be lost.”Things were bad enough for Kakee to pull up stakes and spend last winter in a wooden shack on the shore of Frobisher Bay without heat, water and plumbing.“It was really, really cold,” he said in a video filmed this week by Qaumariaq Inuqtaqau and posted to the activist’s Facebook page Shame on Canada.“We’ve been going to the food bank but sometimes we go hungry… We don’t have cooking supplies.”Their escape to the capital landed them in the middle of another Nunavut crisis – a chronic lack of housing in the territory.Kakee said they were walking back from the store in time to see flames shooting into the sky. What caused the fire is unknown.“I was crying. We lost everything we had,” he said. “Our clothes… our bedding materials. Everything’s gone.”About 100 homeless people live in rickety shacks, ripped tents and old boats along Iqaluit’s rocky shores, noted Inuqtaqau, because there aren’t enough homes, transitional spaces or room for couples and families in the city’s two shelters.“I’ve been asking for help for these people for the last two-and-half years,” he said Friday.Inuqtaqau said local businesses donated some clothing, groceries, a nylon tent and camping stove but he worries about the family with another winter looming.“I’m desperate,” Kakee says on the video. “We need a place to live with my son.“He has asthma; his lungs gets weak very fast sometimes.”The use of camp stoves and fuel, among other problems, has sparked several fires in the makeshift homeless community, including one that killed a man.This abandoned boat was someone’s home. (submitted photo)“They could have actually saved some lives if they gave people a house,” said Inuqtaqau, who claims politicians and Inuit leaders are ignoring the emergency.He says vulnerable people are at risk while government homes stand empty waiting to be awarded to out-of-town workers as part of their employment contracts.“Southerners get housing and food subsidies while Inuks sleep on the beach,” Inuqtaqau said.Kakee said the situation makes him sad.“I was feeling really down because I didn’t want him to live like this,” he said of his son.“We need a house. I want him to feel free and have friends around him.”If the family makes a home in Iqaluit remains to be seen, but Mayor Madeleine Redfern says a multi-million-dollar expansion planned for the men’s shelter should ease some of the perilous conditions.“It’s an issue that, as mayor, I have brought to the attention of both the governments of Nunavut and the federal government,” she said in a telephone interview Friday, noting she had visited the homeless family on the beach.She said she was starting to hear about some flexibility in who gets housing owned by the territorial and federal governments, including employees relocating within Nunavut and not just those coming from outside the territory.Redfern noted the city itself doesn’t build houses but makes land available.To that end, she said work is underway to prepare a new subdivision for development next summer.–with files by The Canadian Press kmartens@aptn.ca@katmartelast_img read more

Talks to manage offshore Arctic drilling may signal end of ban NWT

13 Oct 2019

first_imgYELLOWKNIFE – The federal government is opening talks with northerners on managing offshore energy exploration in the Canadian Arctic, a move some hope signals a coming relaxation of the current ban on potential development.“I would hope that’s the case,” said Northwest Territories Premier Bob McLeod.“We’ll see as we negotiate. I certainly am feeling very optimistic.”Northern Affairs Minister Dominic Leblanc and Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi announced Thursday that Ottawa will negotiate a Beaufort Sea oil and gas co-management and revenue-sharing agreement with the governments of the Northwest Territories and Yukon, as well as the Inuvialuit Regional Corporation.In 2016, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced an indefinite moratorium on all offshore energy exploration in Canada’s Arctic, subject to a review every five years. He made the announcement in conjunction with then-U.S. president Barack Obama, who brought in similar measures.Since then, President Donald Trump has announced plans to open the American Arctic to drilling.Leblanc, who recently toured the northern capitals, emphasized the importance of resources to the territorial economies.“Our partners were very clear,” he said in a release.“They want to be involved in the management of Arctic offshore oil and gas resources, and they want to see economic prosperity and jobs that will benefit Indigenous peoples and all Northerners in the future without affecting the health of their environment.”Sohi said in a release that the government has been working with both the territories and the energy industry.“We heard loud and clear that the protection of the Arctic environment and the sustainable, inclusive development of the region for the benefit of Northern residents and all Canadians are critical to growing Canada’s economy.”McLeod said much will depend on the five-year review, due in 2021.“Unless we deal with the five-year review things don’t change that much. We’re hoping that after five years, they’ll get rid of (the moratorium).”He said his government will work toward an agreement similar to one reached by the Maritime provinces for their offshore.“The GNWT has been waiting for today’s announcement for some time and I appreciate that Minister LeBlanc has been able to make tangible progress,” he said in a release.Leblanc and Sohi also promised to involve northerners in a research program that takes into account marine and climate change science.After a flurry of interest in the early 2010s, interest in the Beaufort offshore died down. Imperial Oil, which still holds large exploration leases in those waters, cancelled its drilling program in 2015.As part of Thursday’s announcement, the government also said it would preserve existing offshore exploration rights for energy companies and refund remaining deposits related to those licences.There are 63 exploration and discovery licences in the Beaufort Sea. The financial consequences of that promise weren’t immediately clear.— By Bob Weber in Edmonton. Follow him on Twitter at @row1960last_img read more

Scientists develop device to detect bacteria in minutes

12 Oct 2019

first_imgWashington: The era of doctors prescribing patients powerful antibiotics while they wait for lab reports could soon be numbered, with a new device returning results within minutes instead of days. It was invented by a team at Penn State university and described in a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on Monday. Co-developed by Pak Kin Wong, a professor of biomedical engineering and mechanical engineering, the device uses microtechnology to trap single bacteria cells that can then be viewed under an electron microscope. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportThe approach allows clinicians to determine in as little as 30 minutes whether bacteria is present and its susceptibility to drug treatment — as opposed to the three-to-five days such lab work currently takes. “We currently prescribe antibiotics even when there is no bacteria present,” Wong told AFP. “That is over prescription. That is one of things we tried to express. Can we quickly determine the existence of bacterial infection?” The researchers’ paper said that in addition to being able to detect whether bacteria is present, the device can begin to classify the type by determining whether the cells are spherical, rod-shaped, or spiral. Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protests”This device determines existence but not what type of bacteria it is,” said Wong. “What we’re working on is a complementary molecular approach such that we can ID the species.” And after finding bacteria is present, the sample is exposed to antibiotics to determine whether the strain is resistant, in which case antibiotic intervention would prove ineffective. “Urinary tract infections are the most common bacterial infections,” said Wong. “However, over 75 per cent of urine specimens sent to a clinical microbiology laboratory are negative. Rapidly ruling out or confirming the presence of bacteria at a clinically relevant concentration will dramatically enhance patient care.” He added that the team had applied for a provisional patent and could bring their device, which they hope to scale down in size so that it can be used in hospitals and doctors’ offices, to market in three years’ time.last_img read more

Guerguerat Morocco in Alert to Protect MINURSO against Terrorist Risk

12 Oct 2019

Rabat – Morocco has strengthened security measures at the MINURSO headquarters in the Guerguerat buffer zone to protect its forces after being alerted to terrorist threats. Following a warning from officials at the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO), concerning possible terrorist acts that could target them, members of the mission have been on full alert in the Guerguerat buffer zone at Morocco’s southern borders with Mauritania.The United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO),The mission is on alert at its headquarters in the buffer zone, and Morocco’s forces strengthened security measures near them in a move to protect the MINURSO elements. Arabic-language news source, Al-Massa, reported in its weekend issue that Morocco takes very seriously the warnings and fears of the United Nations. The UN mission fortified its presence at a warehouse reserved for it in Guerguerat after it withdrew in reaction to the the threats. The decision was met with discontent from the Polisario Front.Later, the MINURSO teams resumed their activity in the region while maintaining maximum alert level. Increased measures included inspecting all company vehicles before use and parking them in the car parks reserved for MINURSO, as well as advising their personnel to avoid being alone.Earlier last week, UN reports indicated that terrorist groups active in the Sahel region and the Sahara intended to attack MINURSO personnel, especially those present at Guerguerat.The UN immediately notified its mission of these intentions and called on it to implement preventive measures and reinforce its security in the area.The ongoing terrorism threat in the Sahel area has prompted French U.N. Ambassador, Francois Delattre, to circulate a draft resolution on Tuesday to the 15 members of the UNSC authorizing the military intervention, in accordance with international law and in coordination with the peacekeeping mission of the UN.Speaking to the media, Delattre stated, “It would be irresponsible for the council not to come together behind this regional initiative to combat terrorism across borders at the moment when the threat has never been so high.” read more

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos have signed veteran cornerback Jamar Taylor to add depth to their defensive backfield with star cornerback Chris Harris Jr. out with chip fracture in his lower right leg.Taylor is a six-year pro from Boise State who has appeared in 74 career games and made 41 career starts with the Arizona Cardinals (2018), Cleveland Browns (2016-17) and Miami Dolphins (2013-15).He had 17 tackles and a pass breakup in 10 games, including three starts, this season for the Cardinals, who released him Oct. 20.Taylor joins Bradley Roby, Tramaine Brock, Brendan Langley and rookie Isaac Yiadom at cornerback for the Broncos (6-6), who are making a playoff push. They’ll take a three-game winning streak, their first since the Peyton Manning era, into San Francisco (2-10) this weekend.Harris, who was injured in the Broncos’ 24-10 win at Cincinnati on Sunday, said he hopes to be back for the regular-season finale against the Chargers on Dec. 30.The Broncos waived fifth-year tackle Cyrus Kouandjio to make room for Taylor on the 53-man roster.Taylor’s signing comes 24 hours after coach Vance Joseph indicated the Broncos wouldn’t be bringing in another cornerback.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/tag/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapletonArnie Stapleton, The Associated Press read more

La France veut planter ses arbres en Islande pour conserver leur ADN

20 Sep 2019

first_imgLa France veut planter ses arbres en Islande pour conserver leur ADND’après le département forestier de l’Islande, la France envisagerait aujourd’hui de planter sur l’île, certains de ses arbres dont les espèces seraient menacées par le réchauffement climatique. Le réchauffement climatique et la hausse des températures causent de sérieux problèmes à la nature et présentent une menace pour de nombreuses espèces animales comme végétales. Un constat auquel ne semble pas échapper les arbres français. C’est pourquoi l’Office national des forêts a élaboré un plan de sauvegarde qui permettrait de préserver les arbres si leur habitat venait à devenir trop chaud : planter les végétaux en Islande. À lire aussiCes 18 arbres sont les plus extraordinaires de la planèteEn effet, avec la hausse des températures, le climat islandais est aujourd’hui plus froid que le climat français mais il n’est pas glaciaire, en raison de la présence du Gulf Stream. Le pays pourrait donc être un refuge idéal pour les arbres en danger. “Le principal objectif est de rechercher et de trouver des moyens pour protéger et préserver l’ADN de ces arbres”, a précisé Adalsteinn Sigurgeirsson du Service forestier islandais qui a passé une entente avec son homologue français. La collaboration concerne en fait tout particulièrement des espèces provenant des massifs montagneux alpin et pyrénéen, comme le hêtre. Mais “nous allons spécialement étudier les espèces qui sont les plus menacées en France par le réchauffement climatique”, a commenté le chef du département des recherches du Service forestier islandais cité par l’AFP.

Gloomy weather to continue 2 days more

03 Sep 2019

first_img.Gloomy weather across the country will continue for next two days (Thursday and Friday), said a Met official. Md Abdul Mannan, an official at Bangladesh Meteorological Department, said a low depression is prevailing over northwest Bay and its adjacent west central Bay. As a result, rainy clouds are created over north Bay, Bangladesh and its adjacent areas. It also causes light to moderate rain throughout the country, he added.The Met official also said four maritime ports have been asked to hoist cautionary signal number 3. Meanwhile, the Met Office released a special weather bulletin on Thursday.The depression, which moved north-northeastwards, is likely to intensify further and move in a northeasterly direction.It was centred on Wednesday midnight about 985 kms southwest of Chittagong port, 965 kms southwest of Cox’s Bazar port, 795 kms southwest of Mongla port and 830 kms southwest of Payra port.Maximum sustained wind speed within 44 kms of the depression centre is about 40 kph rising to 50 kph in gusts or squalls.All fishing boats and trawlers over North Bay and deep sea have been advised to proceed with caution.

Doctor Who Underrated Villain of the Week The Beast

UN sees 127 percent of youth out of work globally

18 Aug 2019

first_img Top holiday drink recipes GENEVA (AP) – The U.N. labor office says it expects 12.7 percent of youth globally to be unemployed in 2012 and the rate to remain “at the same high level” at least four more years.The International Labor Organization says nearly 75 million of those aged 15 to 24 are unemployed worldwide, up more than 4 million from 2007.The Geneva-based U.N. agency said in a report Tuesday that the youth unemployment rate, which stood at 12.6 percent in 2011, has “remained close to its crisis peak in 2009” at the height of the global financial crisis.

Then again, theplayers could have done their part and played well, givingthe visitors no reason to cheer. Maybe that’s just silly,but the only thing at University of Phoenix Stadium Sundaythat was uncalled for was the Cardinals’ play.Say what you want, but I’m a fan first. When my team isdown, that’s when you are the loudest, that’s when youneed the most support D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Fair enough, if there were more Cardinals fans in thestadium the Cardinals defense would not have allowed a 10-play, 64-yard touchdown drive on Pittsburgh’s nextpossession. Whatever the fans are making is clearly toomuch, as they don’t deserve their high salary when theyare cheering like that. For shame.But the crowd is pro steelers, so we can’t even use ourgreatest asset, Our Home Crowd… Home field is huge insports.

The Coyotes defeated the Kings 4-2. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images) On Wednesday, ArizonaSports.com and its corresponding Twitter account, @AZSports, did coinciding polls to ask users: Which of the four major professional teams in the Valley is closest to a title? Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The Phoenix sports scene could use another championship ring.The Diamondbacks are still the only of the four major professional teams in Arizona to win a title, beating the Yankees in the World Series in 2001. Other teams have come close, but still, Arizona’s youngest major professional sports franchise is the only to win a title.We know — the Phoenix Mercury, Arizona Rattlers and Phoenix Rising FC have all either had great success or a bright future or both. But this question is intended to examine the “big four” teams, whose fan base, economic impact and brand recognition are all the largest among the list of teams in the Valley. The Coyotes finished just four points behind Colorado, which occupied the final Wild Card spot. They won 39 games and had 86 points, the most since 2013-14. It was a drastic improvement from the season before, in which the Coyotes finished last in the Pacific Division and were virtually out of the playoff race by November.That said, progress is often non-linear. Do the Coyotes fix their scoring woes? Do young players take that next step forward? How long do the veterans have left with the young core?Arizona Diamondbacks (24%)(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)The D-backs, should they be the next to win the ‘ship, would earn their second title while other teams are still waiting on their first. How unfair.But the Diamondbacks winning a World Series in the near future isn’t out of the question, since they’re the most recent of the four teams to make the playoffs and are off to a decent start in 2019. The emergence of players like David Peralta, Nick Ahmed and Ketel Marte over the last few years has only bolstered their chance of success going forward.But will losing big pieces like Paul Goldschmidt, Patrick Corbin and A.J. Pollock hurt their depth and experience in the long haul? And can the team maintain consistency in what has been a 21-16 start to the season? But with an 86% chance the Suns will not get that pick, odds are the team goes into the offseason following a 19-win season with questions about who to draft, how high they value young players like Josh Jackson and Kelly Oubre Jr., and how to solve the persistent point guard problem.It’s felt like the Suns have been two years away from being two years away for a long time. This poll does not reveal optimism that Phoenix has moved much closer to its goal. 76 Comments   Share   Top Stories Which of these Valley teams is closest to winning a championship?— 98.7 Arizona Sports (@AZSports) May 8, 2019The results were slightly different depending on which platform you were on. On the website, as of Thursday morning, more than 80% of users had said the Coyotes were closest. On Twitter, the ‘Yotes had the lead as well, but only 57% of the vote.We wanted to dive into this question a little further. Here’s a synopsis for each team to add more context to the discussion, put in order by how each team did in the poll:Arizona Coyotes (57%)(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)Twitter users were bullish about the Coyotes’ future, overwhelmingly voting them as the closest team.Related LinksDissatisfying as 2018-19 was, Coyotes’ season showed progressBy the numbers: Diamondbacks’ road trip vs. Rockies, RaysArizona Cardinals pick QB Kyler Murray 1st in 2019 NFL DraftMonty Williams will usher in new era of Phoenix Suns basketballThere’s a good case to be made for this. Arizona’s NHL franchise hasn’t made the playoffs since 2011-12 when it went to the Western Conference Finals, but this year came the closest it has in a long time to making the postseason. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals (13%)(Photo by Norm Hall/Getty Images)The Cardinals are the most recent team to be in their league’s title game or series, even though they’ve yet to win a Super Bowl in their team’s long history.Coming off of an NFL-worst 3-13 season, it’s understandable to think that Arizona’s NFL team is a long way away from a Super Bowl title. But maybe the better descriptor for the Cardinals in all of this is their status as a wild card.If Kyler Murray and Kliff Kingsbury are the new trendsetters in the NFL for how to run an offense and everything goes well, the Cardinals could be a dominant force. If things don’t go according to plan and Murray doesn’t pan out, it’s back to the drawing board.Phoenix Suns (6%)(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)Phoenix hopes the five-year signing of experienced head coach Monty Williams can signal a turnaround for a team looking for stability in a nine-year playoff drought.We’ll know Tuesday if their luck is turning when the NBA Draft Lottery determines who gets the No. 1 pick and likely Zion Williamson, the most highly-touted prospect in years.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The Phoenix sports scene could use another championship ring.The Diamondbacks are still the only of the four major professional teams in Arizona to win a title, beating the Yankees in the World Series in 2001. Other teams have come close, but still, Arizona’s youngest major professional sports franchise is the only to win a title.We know — the Phoenix Mercury, Arizona Rattlers and Phoenix Rising FC have all either had great success or a bright future or both. But this question is intended to examine the “big four” teams, whose fan base, economic impact and brand recognition are all the largest among the list of teams in the Valley. The Coyotes finished just four points behind Colorado, which occupied the final Wild Card spot. They won 39 games and had 86 points, the most since 2013-14. It was a drastic improvement from the season before, in which the Coyotes finished last in the Pacific Division and were virtually out of the playoff race by November.That said, progress is often non-linear. Do the Coyotes fix their scoring woes? Do young players take that next step forward? How long do the veterans have left with the young core?Arizona Diamondbacks (24%)(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)The D-backs, should they be the next to win the ‘ship, would earn their second title while other teams are still waiting on their first. How unfair.But the Diamondbacks winning a World Series in the near future isn’t out of the question, since they’re the most recent of the four teams to make the playoffs and are off to a decent start in 2019. The emergence of players like David Peralta, Nick Ahmed and Ketel Marte over the last few years has only bolstered their chance of success going forward.But will losing big pieces like Paul Goldschmidt, Patrick Corbin and A.J. Pollock hurt their depth and experience in the long haul? And can the team maintain consistency in what has been a 21-16 start to the season? But with an 86% chance the Suns will not get that pick, odds are the team goes into the offseason following a 19-win season with questions about who to draft, how high they value young players like Josh Jackson and Kelly Oubre Jr., and how to solve the persistent point guard problem.It’s felt like the Suns have been two years away from being two years away for a long time. This poll does not reveal optimism that Phoenix has moved much closer to its goal. 76 Comments   Share   Top Stories Which of these Valley teams is closest to winning a championship?— 98.7 Arizona Sports (@AZSports) May 8, 2019The results were slightly different depending on which platform you were on. On the website, as of Thursday morning, more than 80% of users had said the Coyotes were closest. On Twitter, the ‘Yotes had the lead as well, but only 57% of the vote.We wanted to dive into this question a little further. Here’s a synopsis for each team to add more context to the discussion, put in order by how each team did in the poll:Arizona Coyotes (57%)(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)Twitter users were bullish about the Coyotes’ future, overwhelmingly voting them as the closest team.Related LinksDissatisfying as 2018-19 was, Coyotes’ season showed progressBy the numbers: Diamondbacks’ road trip vs. Rockies, RaysArizona Cardinals pick QB Kyler Murray 1st in 2019 NFL DraftMonty Williams will usher in new era of Phoenix Suns basketballThere’s a good case to be made for this. Arizona’s NHL franchise hasn’t made the playoffs since 2011-12 when it went to the Western Conference Finals, but this year came the closest it has in a long time to making the postseason. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals (13%)(Photo by Norm Hall/Getty Images)The Cardinals are the most recent team to be in their league’s title game or series, even though they’ve yet to win a Super Bowl in their team’s long history.Coming off of an NFL-worst 3-13 season, it’s understandable to think that Arizona’s NFL team is a long way away from a Super Bowl title. But maybe the better descriptor for the Cardinals in all of this is their status as a wild card.If Kyler Murray and Kliff Kingsbury are the new trendsetters in the NFL for how to run an offense and everything goes well, the Cardinals could be a dominant force. If things don’t go according to plan and Murray doesn’t pan out, it’s back to the drawing board.Phoenix Suns (6%)(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)Phoenix hopes the five-year signing of experienced head coach Monty Williams can signal a turnaround for a team looking for stability in a nine-year playoff drought.We’ll know Tuesday if their luck is turning when the NBA Draft Lottery determines who gets the No. 1 pick and likely Zion Williamson, the most highly-touted prospect in years. Adding him to the core of guard Devin Booker and center Deandre Ayton is a dream for Suns fans. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

President brings Papadopoulos mother into campaign

09 Aug 2019

first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades sparked the anger of the Nikolas Papadopoulos camp on Sunday after bringing up his rival’s family wealth and stating that his mother’s money could not solve the problem of non-performing loans (NPLs).In an interview published on Sunday by Kathimerini, Anastasiades, who is seeking a second term, said when asked about the persistent NPL problem: “I will not start promising a haircut on loans, just as I hear some people saying, as if this comes from their mother’s money or the inheritance they received from someone.”Even though he mentioned no names, it was widely understood that Anastasiades was referring to Papadopoulos and his mother Fotini.In response, Papadopoulos’ election camp said in an announcement that Anastasiades had outdone himself in “vulgarity and immorality”.“After failing for five years to deal with the huge problem of NPLs and having no counter-proposal to that of Nikolas Papadopoulos on the creation of a public agency to manage NPLs, Mr Anastasiades […] made offensive, sarcastic and degrading comments for Mrs  Fotini Papadopoulou and (her father) national benefactor Anastasios Leventis,” an announcement said.Diko said that this was an effort by Anastasiades to dismiss the proposals of Papadopoulos.Fotini Papadopoulou, the party said, was well-known in Cyprus for her “massive and substantial charity work”.This statement, the party said, showed the president lacked seriousness, the absence of any plan to deal with the serious problems of the economy and that he was panicking over “the appeal of Nikolas Papadopoulos’ proposals to the people”.Greens leader Giorgos Perdikis ran to support of Papadopoulos, whom his party is backing, and tweeted: “I don’t know if ‘mummy’s money’ can solve the problem of the NPLs. What’s certain is that it is never going to be solved by Anastasiades’ indifference and (Finance Minister) Harris’ (Georgiades) callousness”.Akel-backed independent candidate Stavros Malas also censured Anastasiades for “immorally attacking one of his election opponents”.Ruling party Disy rushed to the president’s defence. Disy spokesman Prodromos Prodromou said that those who were offended by Anastasiades’ comment were overreacting.Anastasiades used “a common figure of speech, criticising those who do not understand that state policies have to do with taxpayers’ money, and behave as if they have to do with the money and property of their family”.Those who took offence at Anastasiades’ statement, were those who felt this comment was about them, Prodromou said.You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
