first_imgPORTLAND — A federal appeals court has given the green light to a lawsuit filed by young activists who say the U.S. government is failing to protect them from climate change.The lawsuit brought by 21 children and young adults asserts the government has known for decades that carbon pollution causes climate change but has failed to curb greenhouse gas emissions. They are seeking various environmental remedies.A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday rejected the government’s request for an order directing a lower court to dismiss the case.Julia Olson, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said in a statement that the group will put the federal government’s “dangerous energy system and climate policies on trial.”last_img read more

first_imgA jubilant Jurgen Klopp has warned Real Madrid that his Liverpool side will be “on fire” when they meet in the Champions League final later this monthThe Reds scrapped through a tricky return leg against AS Roma on Wednesday night with a 7-6 aggregate win to book their place in the final, despite losing 4-2 to the Italian side at the Stadio Olimpico on the night.However, next up for Liverpool will be the 12-time Champions League winners Real on May 26 at Kiev.But Klopp, who led his Borussia Dortmund side to victory against Los Galacticos in the 2013 semi-finals of the competition, is certain that his players will up for the challenge of defying the odds and prevent Real from winning a third consecutive title.“Going to a final is really nice. I did it a few times but winning it is even nicer. We will be ready,” said the Liverpool manager, according to SportsKeeda.“You cannot be more experienced in the competition than Real Madrid. I think pretty much 80 percent of the team played all these finals four times in the last five years and they are still together.“So if we talk about experience, they are experienced and we are not. But we will be really on fire, you can imagine.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“We are looking forward to it but before that, we have to play two more Champions League semi-finals in the Premier League. That is first of all the job to do.“Then we’ll have two weeks to prepare for the final and we will use that time.”A concerning fact for Klopp is that he has lost five of his six finals in his managerial career and the German is aware that his Liverpool side still way some way to go yet.“Look, we were in the League Cup final and we didn’t win it. People don’t tell me in the street since then, ‘Thank you for bringing us to the final’,” said the 50-year-old.“We were in the Europa League final. I didn’t see any trophies after these games.“They don’t hang silver medals at Melwood. That’s the pity, that’s the game. So there’s still a job to do but that’s how it is.”last_img read more

Yes, we are sixth. That’s the reality.“We still have to believe we can finish in the top four even while knowing it will be ­difficult for us.“There’s a big difference between the top three [Liverpool, Manchester City, and Tottenham] and us but we are a lot closer to Chelsea and Manchester United.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“The gap to the top three is too big but the other two? The possibility to catch them is there because we are only three points ­behind Chelsea and one point behind Manchester United. We still have to believe that we can do it.”The Gunners will take a trip to the Kirklees Stadium today for their next Premier League match against bottom-placed side Huddersfield Town with kick-off set for 4:00 PM (CET).Hector Bellerin, Danny Welbeck, Rob Holding and Sokratis Papastathopoulos all remain sidelined for Arsenal this weekend as they continue their recoveries from long-term injuries.Meanwhile, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Granit Xhaka are doubts for the game.

But with the campaign expected to heat up in the coming weeks, its organizers have barely tapped their coffers. With 12 weeks until voters will tackle the topic in the general election, members of the pro-home rule charter committee are sitting on the money, weighing their options on how to spend it.The money has been flowing into Clark Forward, a political action committee. The entity, created by former County Commissioner Steve Stuart and Auditor Greg Kimsey, predates the Vote Charter Yes campaign and was created to champion the charter review process. While there will undoubtedly be opposition to the pro-charter campaign, no PAC has been formed for the express purpose of countering it, according to the state’s Public Disclosure Commission.last_img read more

first_imgThe Lemon Creek Correctional Center. (Photo courtesy Alaska Department of Corrections)Two male inmates at Juneau’s Lemon Creek Correctional Center overdosed on drugs last week. Both men survived and are still in custody.Now, the Department of Corrections and the Alaska State Troopers are investigating what happened.Download AudioA prison officer discovered the inmates, who authorities aren’t naming, on July 24 at 3 p.m.“The inmates were initially discovered by a corrections officer that was monitoring security cameras. The officers do routine checks on inmates every 30 to 40 minutes, but this officer was monitoring the security cameras, noticed that there was something that wasn’t quite right and went to go check on the situation,” says Sherri Daigle, deputy director of the Department of Corrections.Daigle says she couldn’t specify exactly what the officer saw, nor could she say if the security cameras had caught events leading up to the overdose. She says that’s part of the investigation.The two inmates were transported by ambulance to Bartlett Regional Hospital 30 minutes after they were found. One inmate was treated and returned to Lemon Creek Correctional Center that same day.The other was medevaced to Anchorage Regional Hospital for further treatment two days later. On July 29, he was brought to the Anchorage Correctional Complex.The two inmates had been found in separate cells of the 24-bed segregation unit. Daigle does not know how long they had been there before they overdosed.DOC reported the incident to the Alaska State Troopers four days after it happened. Daigle says DOC doesn’t ordinarily involve the troopers when an inmate is transported to the hospital.“The institution would have done their own investigation and then if it was deemed necessary to call the Troopers, they would do so after the fact,” Daigle says.For this situation, troopers were called in because contraband was found. Daigle says contraband is an issue that prisons across the nation deal with on a daily basis, and Juneau’s prison is no different.On the other hand, inmates overdosing is not common. Daigle says the last time it happened at Lemon Creek Correctional Center was in 2007.The troopers responded to the overdose report on July 29. At the same time, they also responded to a different report of a male inmate that introduced drugs into the prison.“As far as what kind of drugs, that needs to be tested to determine. And same with the controlled substance that the two overdosed on the 24th,” says trooper spokeswoman Beth Ipsen.Ipsen says the two incidents are not related and no charges have been made in either case.last_img read more

first_imgDrivers navigate the potholed road in front of the Ravn Air terminal in Bethel on March 28, 2018. (Photo by Amara Freeman/ KYUK)Download audioThe state is about to go to work responding to Bethel’s pothole predicament. Starting Thursday, the Department of Transportation will begin repairing Chief Eddie Hoffman Highway. The warm winter has wreaked similar havoc on highways across Alaska.They’ll start by ripping down into the Bethel highway’s most heavily damaged areas between City Hall and Brown’s Slough.“What we’re going to do is mill it up; we’re gonna shape it and get it in good shape. It’ll be more of a gravel/recycled asphalt product,” Shannon McCarthy, Department of Transportation spokesperson, explained.The road will stay in that condition with the city grading the product until the entire highway is repaved next summer in 2019. DOT will fill the rest of the highway potholes with recycled asphalt. The DOT has a small stockpile of the material in Bethel and has brought it indoors to thaw.The road’s destruction happened quickly.“We’ve been trying to keep up with the potholes, and obviously they’re forming faster than we can keep up,” McCarthy said.Over the past month, Chief Eddie Hoffman Highway has crumbled into a cratered moonscape. It’s the same story all over the state. The problem is how warm this winter has been. Instead of temperatures dropping below freezing and staying there, they’ve been fluctuating above and below that point for months.“We didn’t used to get that freeze/thaw [in] November, December, January, February. And we’re getting more of that,” McCarthy said. “And unfortunately, that contributes to that potholing that we get in the spring.”This issue has been escalating for years as winters have grown warmer, forcing the state to spend more money on road maintenance. The DOT is paying for the Bethel repairs with a $70,000 emergency procurement. Even so, the DOT expects more potholes to form once they’re done. The roads are still wet; there’s plenty more snow to melt; and the freeze/thaw cycle is continuing.Last week KYUK reported that the DOT’s webpage for reporting potholes did not list contacts for any Western Alaska communities. This week the DOT is adding an email address for anyone in the state to use to report a pothole: dot.potholes@alaska.govlast_img read more

first_imgLogo of BNPThe BNP on Thursday termed the election commission’s plan to use electronic voting machines (EVMs) in next general elections as a collaborative scheme with Awami League to rig polls.BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said the ruling party is up to mischief, as it has lost all its confidence in the people.“Losing confidence in the people, the Awami League is now banking on machines (EVMs). The plan to use EVMs is an unholy partnership of the Awami League and the election commission,” the BNP leader said.He gave his reaction to the EC’s most recent initiative to use EVMs without consultating the people and the political parties, addressing a press conference at the BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office.Mirza Fakhrul alleged that the AL and the EC have undertaken the scheme in order to manipulate the election process.“Why and at whose directive has the chief election commissioner all of a sudden undertaken the scheme to introduce the EVMs in the national elections?” the BNP leader asked.He, however, expressed determination to foil such a conspiratorial move.Mirza Fakhrul also warned that ‘unnecessary’ spending in the name of procuring EVMs would be considered as the “personal liability’ of the election commission officials.“The liability of such misdeeds must be borne by the election commission authorities,” he said.Mentioning that chief election commissioner KM Nurul Huda assured people of not using the EVMs after he had taken the charge of the commission, he questioned what now prompted the commission to hurriedly procure 1.5 lakh EVMs spending Tk 40 billion.The BNP leader said the election results can be manipulated through the EVMs while five votes can be given with one click.He urged the election commission to engage in talks with all the stakeholders and take steps for ensuring a fair voting through the customary ballot paper system.Fakhrul also presented 11 proposals for taking necessary steps for a credible election by spending Tk 40 billion instead of procuring EVMs.The proposals include, installing closed-circuit cameras at 44,000 polling stations, developing the infrastructure of the educational institutions to be used as voting centres, providing upazila election officers with necessary transport facilities, setting up a modern printing press for printing ballot papers, enhancing the capacity of officers involved with the election process, providing all the upazila election offices with video cameras, taking a ‘voter education and awareness programme’ and ensuring sufficient honorarium for election officials and Ansar-VDP and village police members.last_img read more

first_imgJen Rice/Houston Public MediaCommissioner Rodney Ellis speaks at the Urban Harvest announcement. Listen 00:00 /00:54 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:center_img X Share Low income residents enrolled in SNAP, the federal government’s food assistance program, can now double their benefits at Houston area farmers markets, as part of a new program launched by Urban Harvest. At select farmers markets, Urban Harvest is providing a two-for-one deal where $20 in SNAP benefits will buy $40 worth of fruits and vegetables.Huey Wilson with the Northeast Houston Redevelopment Council said Urban Harvest markets are bringing resources to the community in Northeast Houston, where only two grocery stores are within walking distance of local residents. “For at least 60 percent of our residents, nearly 200,000 people, the walk to the store is unreasonable. It’s greater than a mile,” she said. “And the bus ride is almost as unreasonable. It is, for most of our residents, at least a mile and a half to the bus stop.”Wilson said Urban Harvest brings local residents and regional farmers together to create and sustain their own markets.“Urban Harvest is making a consistent effort to work with us by showing us, the residents, how to bring and develop farmers markets,” she said.The federally-funded SNAP program, formerly known as food stamps, serves more than 600,000 people in the Houston area. Another 250,000 Houstonians are likely eligible, but don’t receive benefits. Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis said those benefits are an underutilized resource in his precinct. “Roughly one-third of the people who are eligible for SNAP are in Precinct 1,” Ellis said. “There are many people who don’t know the guidelines, don’t know that they could get benefits, and so don’t take advantage of them.” According to the Houston SNAP Task Force, some factors that prevent eligible Houstonians from receiving help are lack of information about how to apply, stigma associated with public assistance and the perception that the household is over the income threshold.last_img read more

Lafayette Ave, Baltimore at 11 a.m., preceded by Family Hour at 10 a.m. Friends may view her body at the March Funeral Home, 4300 Wabash Ave, on June 23 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Zerita ‘Joy’ Richardson Carter (Courtesy photo)(Updated 5/21/2016) Mrs. Zerita Joy Richardson Carter, affectionately known as ‘Joy’ by family and friends, died on June 14 at 10:10 am, at Sinai Hospital. Joy was born in Baltimore, Md, on October 1, 1931. She was 84 and died from complications of lung disease.Born to Wilbert and Ernestine Richardson, Joy survived her parents and three brothers: Wilbert (eldest), and twins, Lloyd Charles and Lewis Paul Richardson. She graduated from Frederick Douglass High School, class of 1951, and later received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Morgan State University in 1955.As a teenager, growing up in segregated Maryland, Joy worked summers as a dishwasher in Ocean City. She also worked throughout high school at Hendin’s Hollywood Fashions on Pennsylvania Avenue, and played tennis daily in Druid Hill Park. After graduating from Morgan, Joy worked as a recreation leader for McCulloh Homes, Gilmor Homes, and Poe Homes. She was known for going the extra mile to stimulate children’s interest and creativity in arts and crafts and other activities.Walter P. Carter, Zerita ‘Joy’ Carter, Jill P. Carter (AFRO file photo-circa 1969)In 1954, Joy married civil rights leader, Walter P. Carter, known primarily for activism and organizing efforts to desegregate public accommodations throughout Maryland and to end housing discrimination in Baltimore City. Together, they had two daughters, Judith Linn and Jill Priscilla.Following Walter’s death in 1971, Joy became a certified teacher and worked at Samuel Coleridge Taylor Elementary School #122, as an early childhood educator, until her retirement in the year 2000.  She was honored as Teacher of the Year in 1993.Joy was a lifelong, active member of Saint James’ Episcopal Church, where she worked with the food pantry, served as a member of the Rector’s Guild, and worked faithfully as a member of the group lovingly referred to as the “Call Girls” because they put together the weekly church bulletin, The Call. An avid collector of Black dolls, Joy was a member of the Charm City Dolling Club. Over the years, she amassed an extensive doll collection. She enjoyed socializing with friends at monthly lunch and pinochle club meetings, and was a long-time member of The Spockettes.“Mom believed decency was among the most important of human traits and prided herself on living a life of supreme decency”, according to her daughter Jill. “She instilled that in us. She was fiercely loyal and devoted to her family and friends, an unassuming woman with tremendous wisdom. She was selfless in giving of herself to others and asking nothing in return.”“She taught us that we are not meant to take more than we receive, and without true love, we just exist.  She was a wonderfully down- to-earth woman”, said her son-in-law, Judge Sylvester B. Cox, Jr., Circuit Court for Baltimore City.Joy refrained from being personally active in politics, but she was politically astute and active in the 5 and 5 Democratic Club in the 1970s and ’80s, and also served as a member of the Community Health Council of Maryland. Joy was a consistent and enthusiastic supporter of numerous political campaigns, including those of her closest friends, former City Council women, Iris Reeves and Vera P. Hall; and her daughter’s, Jill’s, campaign for the Maryland House of Delegates.Joy enjoyed reading the newspaper every day and listening to talk radio. She made bargain shopping an art, and could be found many days toiling about local thrift shops and discount stores. She referred to herself as a “collector”, and could never be found without a well-stocked collection of gifts in her home to present for every occasion.A long-time resident of the Ashburton neighborhood, Mrs. Carter was active in the neighborhood association, and enjoyed an eventful life with many friends. Among them: her life-long friend, Mrs. Phyllis Savage of Washington, D.C.; Mrs. Cardrienne Griffin of Baltimore; Mrs. Mary Paige of Pittsburg; and a host of others.Her daughters and granddaughters were the loves of her life.Joy Carter is survived by: her two daughters, Judith Linn (Carter) Cox, and the Honorable Jill P.

first_imgKolkata: Aedes Aegypti mosquito which is responsible for transmitting dengue virus into your body is lured by deep colour of clothes. Deep red, deep black and deep blue are the three colours that attract dengue mosquitoes towards a person, said Vector Control Officer of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation Debasish Biswas. Speaking at an interactive session on dengue, Biswas said: “These three colours are spotted by an Aedes Aegypti, female mosquito, from a distance of 10 metres. The shadow of these colours help the insect in the sighting and it is attracted towards these colours. So it is better to avoid these colours at least from June to October which are the months in which dengue cases are the maximum.” Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe event was held at Rabindra Sadan organised by the KMC’s Health department on Saturday. Fashion designer Agnimitra Paul suggested roping in cricketers and film stars for the campaign. “I have seen that when some brand is endorsed by a cricketer or a film star, it has more appeal. The same process may also be followed in the KMC’s awareness programmes about dengue,” Paul added. Member Mayor-in-Council (Health) Atin Ghosh welcomed the proposal and said the civic body will give it a serious thought. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedSpeaking at the programme, Ghosh said the objective of the programme was to make all the stakeholders aware of the treatment protocol of the vector-borne disease that is made by the National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (NVBDCP) every year. “We want that treatment at all hospitals, health centres (both government and private) of vector-borne diseases would be of the same pattern as per the guidelines of World Health Organisation (WHO). We have invited all hospitals, both government and private, in the programme to hand over the treatment protocol. We will also be sending it to other stakeholders who failed to attend the programme,” Ghosh said.He urged the doctors dealing with dengue to consider the treatment to be a part of social cause. Mayor Sovan Chatterjee, in a word of advice to the councillors and borough chairmans who attended the programme, said not to create unnecessary panic over dengue.”The civic body is fully geared up to fight dengue and we will strive in ensuring that there is not a single death due to this disease,” Chatterjee said.He reiterated that deaths due to dengue in the state are much less than most other states in the country.last_img read more

first_imgLast week, the Firefox DevTools Debugger team shared the recent updates in Firefox DevTools to make debugging of modern apps more consistent. They have also worked on making the debugger more predictable and capable of understanding common tools in web development like webpack, Babel, and TypeScript. These updates are ready for trying out in Firefox 67, which is planned to be released tomorrow (May 21). The team also shared that Firefox 68 will come with a more “polished” version of these features. Today, every browser comes with a powerful suite of developer tools that allows you to easily inspect and debug your web applications. These tools enable you to do a bunch of things like inspecting currently-loaded JavaScript, editing pages on-the-fly, quickly diagnosing problems, and more. The Firefox team has introduced many improvements and updates to these tools and here are some of the highlights: Revamped source map support Source maps provide a way to keep your client-side code readable and debuggable even after combining and minifying it. The new debugger comes with revamped support for source maps that now “perfects the illusion that you’re debugging your code, not the compiled output from Babel, Webpack, TypeScript, vue.js, etc.” To help developers generate correct source maps, the team and the community has contributed patches to build tools like Babel, a JavaScript compiler and configurable transpiler. Predictable breakpoints for effortless pausing and stepping This improved debugger architecture solves several issues that developers were commonly facing like lost breakpoints, pausing in the wrong script, or stepping through pretty-printed code. Now, they will also be able to easily debug minified scripts, arrow functions, and chained method calls with the help of inline breakpoints. Console debugging with logpoints Developers often resort to console logging (using console.log statements for printing messages to the console) when they want to quickly observe their program’s flow without having to pause the execution. However, this way of debugging can become quite tedious. This is why starting from Firefox 67, developers will have a new breakpoint called ‘logpoint’ that dynamically injects ‘console.log()’ statements into your running application. Better debugging for JavaScript Workers A web worker is a script that runs in the background without having any effect on the main execution thread of a web application. It takes care of all the laborious processing allowing the main thread to run without being slowed down. Firefox will now come with an updated Threads panel through which you will be able to switch between contexts and also independently pause different execution contexts. This will allow workers and their scripts to be debugged within the same Debugger panel. These were some of the highlights from the long list of updates and improvements.

More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Sponsored Stories Comments   Share   Honduran officials and workers signed an agreement Monday in which the government will buy 10,000 acres (4,000 hectares) in the Bajo Aguan Valley near the Caribbean coast from Miguel Facusse of the Dinant agribusiness corporation. The farmworkers, who have already built a city on the property, will then repay the government $16 million through a long-term, low-interest loan to legally acquire the land.Vitalino Alvarez, spokesman of the Unified Farmworkers Movement of Aguan, said the occupiers had wanted the government to give them the land without charge, but gave in and agreed to the settlement. He said they were “signing at gunpoint, under threats and pressure.”“The fight continues,” he said, adding the government still needs to return more land to the people in the region.A judge granted an eviction notice in the Bajo Aguan Valley last week because the government had not kept its end of an earlier deal to pay Facusse. Officials were sending hundreds of officers to force about 5,000 people from the plantations that remained occupied after a series of earlier evictions, Security Minister spokesman Hector Mejia said.Farmworkers in the Aguan Valley have been demanding ownership of about 25,000 acres (10,000 hectares), mostly oil palm plantations, since 2009. The dispute has led to at least 60 deaths since December 2009, including 48 farmworkers, 10 employees of the corporation and two police officers. Top Stories TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) – Farmworkers, the government and a Honduran agribusiness giant have worked out a solution in a deadly dispute that will allow the farmers to buy land they already occupy and continue to work its African palm plantations.“This is putting an end to a problem that has caused so many deaths,” President Porfirio Lobo said Tuesday at the presidential residence before dozens of guests including cabinet members, diplomats, farmers and activists. 5 ways to recognize low testosterone Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Quick workouts for men Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family 5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center New high school in Mesa lets students pick career pathslast_img read more

Residents of communities in the British bases are angry because an agreement made four years ago to regulate building private residences has still not been finalised, it was reported on Monday.Community leader of Erimi told daily Phileleftheros that the communities have waited long enough.According to the news article, every effort by the affected communities to resolve the problem has been ignored. They have sent memos to the interior and foreign ministers and other officials, but the doors remain closed they said. In addition, letters have been sent to heads or representatives of parliamentary parties asking for intervention to implement the agreement.“We have been sending letters to one and all without anybody responding, We are second-class citizens,” Panicos Hadjichambris from Erimi told the paper.“Our communities have been imprisoned within the boundaries of the British bases, with a building factor of zero. We inherited the land from our parents and we cannot use it because its value is nil. As residents we do not know where we belong. Are we citizens of the Republic of Cyprus or citizens of the English government?”George Kyprianou, chairman of the community council of Akrotiri, another affected village told the Cyprus Mail on Monday that the communities have been waiting for a very long time for the situation to be resolved. However, he believes a solution is close at hand.“The negotiations are in their final stages,” he said.The British bases said they are doing their best to resolve the situation but it was a complex issue which needed necessary negotiations.“The SBA administration and the Republic of Cyprus are working together to refine the formal planning zones and policy for the areas in the SBAs that are subject to the Non Military Development Arrangement (NMD),” they said in a statement to the Cyprus Mail. “The work in defining the planning zones and policy has not yet been completed. Alongside this, work is being carried out by the administration in evaluating the legislative and procedural requirements needed for the new planning regime, which will include legislating for strategic environmental assessments. We are all working to implement the NMD Arrangement as quickly as we can.”The historic agreement regarding the right to develop was signed on January 15, 2014 by the then foreign ministers of the two countries, Ioannis Kasoulides and William Hague.The agreement lifts restrictions on the development of land in the non-military areas in the bases areas that have been in place since Cyprus gained its independence in 1960.It applies to properties extending to approximately 198 square kilometres, representing 78 per cent of the British bases area. Under the 1960 Treaty of Establishment, properties within the Akrotiri and Dhekelia SBAs could only be used as agricultural land and no building development was permitted. The 2014 agreement is meant to benefit three municipalities and 17 communities including Kolossi, Episkopi, Ypsonas, Xylophagou and Dherynia.Immediately after the signing of the agreement, intensive consultations took place between the Republic of Cyprus and the British bases on the preparation and adoption of the policy statement.To this end, a competent committee was set up, consisting of representatives of the department of urban planning and housing, as the coordinating body, the district officers, the union of municipalities and communities, the communication and works ministry, the agriculture ministry and representatives of the British bases management.    You May LikeMyFinance10X The Interest on Your Savings: Too Good to Be True? for BraveA Browser that’s 200% Faster than for BraveUndoHabit TribeMore Parents Are Now Gluing Pennies To The Bottoms of Their Kids ShoesHabit TribeUndo Brazil prison riot kills 52, with 16 decapitatedUndoFresh case of Blue Nile virus in northUndoUrgent work planned on collapsed section of Nicosia wallsUndoby Taboolaby Taboola read more
