    “The increasing costs of population growth in Sweden, driven almost entirely mass migration, have forced the government to seriously consider raising the national retirement age to pay for the additional costs.

    Swedish Socialist party Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson announced that the retirement age would likely be raised in the near future in order to offset increased welfare costs, Swedish newspaper Expressen reports.

    “Looking at those who start working at 30, there should be opportunities to work longer than 65,” Andersson said.

    The minister made her remarks following an economic report from the Local Authorities and County Council (SKL) released earlier this week. The report claimed that the welfare state would grow faster than revenue obtained through taxation due to the dramatic rise of Sweden’s population…”

  4. If it is so shitty in Germany , why are you still here? “:Clear spoken judge can hardly save himself from fan mail

    Stephan Zantke is currently possibly the most famous magistrate in Germany. The reason: in a trial judge addressed a defendant with the words “If it’s so shitty here, why are you still here?”

    The man, a Libyan, was in court because he had insulted a cashier in a supermarket as a “Nazi whore” and “Hitler’s bitch.” A witness also said that he said something like “shitty Germany”. At the district court Zwickau, in the verdict of the judge adressed the defendant with these words “if it is so shitty [in Germany], why are you still here?”, then sentenced the man to two and a half years in prison.

    According to a media report, judge now gets a lot of encouragement for the plain text saying. At the district court received “permanent” thank you letters from all parts of Germany, said a spokeswoman for the newspaper “Free Press”. She stressed that the verdict would have been just as if the culprit was German……

  6. UK terror CRACKDOWN: Extra £50 MILLION investment for police to help WIPE OUT terrorism (express, Dec 17, 2017)

    “POLICE forces across the country are being given an extra £50million in funding to help the fight against terrorism.

    The extra cash with help stretched police forces boost their intelligence capabilities and pay officers to patrol the city centres.

    Chancellor Philip Hammond, stuck a deal with Home Secretary Amber Rudd to raise the home office budget from £707million to £757million next year.

    Labour had claimed cuts were putting national security at risk and Jeremy Corbyn criticised the Tories in the run up to the General election for cutting the number of police officer on the streets.

    Government spending on counter terror has increased by 30 per cent since 2015, including an extra £500million for MI5, GCHQ and the SAS.

  9. Saudi academic defends Trump’s Jerusalem move, saying Arabs should accept Israel’s ‘historic right’ (alaraby, Dec 17, 2017)

    “A Saudi academic has defended the controversial US decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and called on Arabs to “accept” Israel’s claims to the holy city.

    Abdulhameed Hakeem, the head of the Middle East Center for Strategic and Legal Studies in Jeddah, made the remarks on US-based al-Hurra Arabic-language TV channel on Saturday.

    “The decision will prompt a positive shock towards moving the stagnant water surrounding negotiations,” Hakeem said.

    “Us, as Arabs, have to come an understanding with the other side and know what its demands are so that we can succeed in peace negotiation efforts,” he said.

    Hakeem’s comments come after President Donald Trump announced earlier this month that the US would break with international consensus and move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel.

    The Saudi royal court has slammed Trump’s announcement as “unjustified and irresponsible” but has been muted in its criticism of the move since.

    It has led many to ask where Riyadh stands on the issue.

    “We have to admit and realise that Jerusalem is a religious symbol for the Jews that is just as holy for them as Mecca and Medina are for Muslims,” Hakeem said.

    “Arab mentality must free itself from the heritage of Gamal Abdel Nasser and political Islam of both the Sunni and Shia sects, which has instilled for purely political interests the culture of hating Jews and denying their historic right in the region.”

    Hakeem’s comments have prompted angry responses on social media and many Twitter users have harshly condemned what they consider an appeal for the “normalisation of relations” with Israel.

    Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates’ deep distrust of Shia power Iran is shared with Israel and has helped thaw relations.

    Saudi Arabia denies it has any official relations with Israel, despite a deluge of recent reports claiming rapprochement between the two states.

    Israel seized control of the eastern part of Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war and sees the whole of Jerusalem as its undivided capital, something not accepted by the international community.

    The Palestinians view the east as the capital of their future state, according to the 1993 Oslo Accords, but Trump’s move puts this hope in serious jeopardy.”

    • >>>> but Trump’s move puts this hope in serious jeopardy.
      The truth:
      which Trump’s move also supports.
      I wonder if the Trump’s whole speech was broadcast in the Arab world.

  14. The sun is blank, NASA data shows it to be dimming
    Anthony Watts / 2 days ago December 15, 2017

    As the sun gets successively more blank with each day, due to lack of sunspots, it is also dimming. According to data from NASA’s Spaceweather, so far in 2017, 96 days (27%) of the days observing the sun have been without sunspots. Here is the view today from the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory satellite:

    Today at Cape Canaveral, SpaceX launched a new sensor to the International Space Station named TSIS-1. Its mission: to measure the dimming of the sun’s irradiance. It will replace the aging SORCE spacecraft. NASA SDO reports that as the sunspot cycle plunges toward its 11-year minimum, NASA satellites are tracking a decline in total solar irradiance (TSI).

    Across the entire electromagnetic spectrum, the sun’s output has dropped nearly 0.1% compared to the Solar Maximum of 2012-2014. This plot shows the TSI since 1978 as observed from nine previous satellites:
