Just for laughs in Bosnia

first_imgValentin Inzko fights back, and raises a laugh.The European Union has often been criticised for its reluctance to take a firm line on the political paralysis in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where the Bosnian Serbs, led by Milorad Dodik, refuse to hand over more powers to the central government to help advance the country’s ambition for closer ties with the Union.  But the Lisbon treaty appears to have emboldened Valentin Inzko, the EU’s special representative in the country. He took part in a debate with Dodik in Sarajevo on 23 February – an unprecedented event, especially given Dodik’s distaste for travelling to Sarajevo, a Muslim-majority city that he has likened to Tehran. At the end of the debate, which was mostly a monologue by Dodik in response to (mostly pre-approved) questions from an invited audience, Dodik was asked how he saw Bosnia two years hence. “Without Inzko,” was his response, followed by laughter from the audience. Inzko’s reply to the same question – “Without Dodik” – provoked even more laughs. Was this the birth of a new EU policy of regime change among the Bosnian Serbs, announced by the soft-spoken, bow-tie wearing Inzko?last_img read more

Trump: Muslim ban was ‘just a suggestion’

first_imgBut Trump didn’t mince words in linking Muslims to the proliferation of terrorism around the world.“We have radical Islamic terrorism all over the world. You can go to Paris, you can go to San Bernardino, all over the world: If they want to deny it, they can deny it. I don’t choose to deny it,” he said.Trump’s comments came one day after he claimed he would make an “exception” for London’s first Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, to enter the U.S.“There will always be exceptions,” he told The New York Times on Tuesday, while adding he was happy Khan was elected in the city.Khan was not impressed with Trump’s gesture, telling CNN that the Manhattan billionaire was “ignorant” about Islam and that he hoped he would lose the U.S. election.Later on Wednesday, Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren also asked about Trump’s immigration plans, including forming a commission to work on his proposed Muslim ban. Donald Trump has demoted his proposed Muslim immigration ban to a mere “suggestion.”In a radio interview with Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade on Wednesday, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee softened his call to temporarily prohibit Muslims from entering the United States.“We have a serious problem. It’s a temporary ban. It hasn’t been called for yet. Nobody’s done it. This is just a suggestion until we find out what’s going on,” Trump said. “I’m looking at it very strongly with Rudy Giuliani heading it,” Trump said.“I’ve spoken to him a little while ago. We’re going to put together a group of five or six people. Very, very highly thought of people, and I think Rudy will head it up, and we’ll look at the Muslim ban.”“I have a lot of confidence in Rudy Giuliani,” Trump concluded.

Also On POLITICO David Cameron says UK election ups pressure for softer Brexit: report By Zoya Sheftalovich EU on UK: Brexit means Brexit By Nicholas Hirst The European Parliament’s chief Brexit negotiator, Guy Verhofstadt, said Wednesday he was open to the U.K. changing its mind and staying in the European Union.But he warned that it should not expect the conditions to remain the same.“If Britain changes its mind, it would find an open door. But like Alice in Wonderland, not all the doors are the same. It will be a brand new door, to a new Europe,” Verhofstadt tweeted.last_img read more

Holy Cross outlines safety precautions for fall semester

first_imgIn a Thursday email to the student body, Holy Cross dean of students Andrew Polaniecki outlined procedures and protocols for the safe return of students to campus this fall, including COVID-19 testing and residential life expectations.All students will be required to take a COVID-19 test within 10 days prior to returning to campus, according to the email. While students can request a test be mailed to their homes, Polaniecki said students are encouraged to find a testing site in their local community. Students with positive test results will be asked to stay home and quarantine for 2 weeks before being approved to return to campus.“The job for all of us is to look out for one another,” Polaniecki said in the email. “Be smart in the two weeks prior to the semester’s start.”Polaniecki said residence hall staff have been approved to move in July 30 while other students eligible for early arrival — including international students — have been contacted individually. First-year students will move in Aug. 7-8 while upperclassmen will move in Aug. 9. First-year room assignments are scheduled to be released July 10. Face coverings and social distancing will be mandated during the move-in period.All students will receive a welcome package with hand disinfectant, a thermometer and at least two masks upon arrival, according to the email.Residence halls will operate at standard capacity with every room considered a “household” for contact tracing purposes. Besides their own rooms, students are expected to follow health precautions.“Students will not need to wear masks when they are in their assigned rooms, but they must wear masks in all other rooms and common spaces, including hallways, lounges and visiting other dormmates,” Polaniecki said in the email.In regard to dining options, the email said Grab and Go and outside dining would be available in addition to indoor dining, where social distancing will be enforced.“In the dining hall, disposable ware will be used, self-service buffets will be replaced with individually portioned, served buffets and other modifications to the space will be made to ensure that we can dine together safely,” Polaniecki said in the email.To ensure the safety of the entire Holy Cross community, Polaniecki said every student and staff member will be required to complete a daily self-screen so that medical personnel can identify students that need to be tested.The email said off-campus students would be asked to complete any quarantine or isolate time in their own housing, and the College has partnered with off-campus housing to isolate students who live on campus.“Isolation rooms on campus and University Edge have been identified for any on-campus infected student,” Polaniecki said. “These students will also be checked on daily and will be provided food and other essentials.”Polaniecki said students will be encouraged to utilize outdoor space for activities and recreation in group settings given the nature of the transmission of the virus.“Student activities, Campus Ministry, hall staff and others that help provide campus programming are eager to meet with students for conversation, pastoral support and program planning,” Polaniecki said.Tags: COVID-19, fall semester 2020, Holy Cross College, Move-inlast_img read more

Sickness, Dons slow down Cards

first_imgLamar sports informationSAN FRANCISCO — The Lamar men’s basketball team shot better than 57 percent in the second half against San Francisco, but couldn’t overcome an early second-half surge from the Dons. USF used a 14-2 second-half run to pull away from LU handing the Red and White an 82-63 setback.“I wasn’t happy with our performance tonight,” said LU head coach Tic Price. “We had a couple kids get sick on this trip and our last three practices haven’t been up to our standards. I was very concerned about this game tonight. I take my hat off to USF. That is a very good basketball team and they were ready to play tonight.”The Cardinals (4-3) shot 47 percent from the field, but could manage just 4 of 13 (.308) from beyond the arc. USF’s hot start to the second half led to a 50-percent performance from the field for the game. The Dons were held well below their season-average from beyond the arc knocking down just 7-of-25 (.280) attempts.After outrebounding Idaho State by 19 three nights ago, the Cardinals were outrebounded Friday by 10, 37-27, including 14 offensive rebounds for the Dons. Their advantage on the glass led to a 23-8 difference in second change points.The Cardinals were led in scoring by junior Colton Weisbrod who finished the night with 24 points and eight rebounds. Native Californian Joey Frenchwood added 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting.LU did a good job of keeping USF’s leading scorer, Ronnie Boyce, a non-factor. He was held to eight points on 4-of-12 shooting. Chase Foster led the Dons with 20 points.After a slow start, the Cardinals finished the first half shooting 13-of-32 (.406) from the field. LU’s defense also held San Francisco just a tick below its season average in the opening half, 15-of-31 (.484). Unfortunately, the Cardinals could not withstand an early second-half surge from their opponents. USF opened the second half with a 14-2 run to build an 18-point advantage less than four minutes into the half. Big Red never got closer than 15 points after that.last_img read more
