California city fights poverty with guaranteed income

Mon, 06/04/2018 - 06:11

By Jane Ross STOCKTON, Calif. (Reuters) - Michael Tubbs, the 27-year-old mayor of Stockton, California, has a radical plan to combat poverty in his cash-strapped city: a "no strings" guaranteed basic income of $500 a month for its residents. Starting in early 2019, Tubbs plans to provide the monthly stipend to a select group of residents as part of a privately funded 18-month experiment to assess how people use the money. "And then, maybe, in two or three years, we can have a much more informed discussion about the social safety net, the income floor people deserve and the best way to do it because we'll have more data and research," Tubbs told Reuters.

Guatemala volcano eruption: Several dead as Fuego spews ash across capital and lava river runs into village

Sun, 06/03/2018 - 21:17

At least seven people were killed and another 20 injured when Guatemala's Fuego volcano erupted violently on Sunday. Volcan de Fuego, one of Central America's most active volcanos, spewed a stream of red hot lava and belched a thick plume of black smoke and ash that rained onto the capital and other regions. "It's a river of lava that overflowed its banks and affected the Rodeo village. There are injured, burned and dead people," Sergio Cabanas, the general secretary of Guatemala's Conred disaster agency, said on radio. "We are evacuating and rescuing people and have reports of 20 wounded, six dead and disappeared," said Cabanas. Mr Cabanas said seven were confirmed dead and an undetermined number of people were missing, leading officials to fear the toll could rise. #VolcandeFuego#Guatemala#Lava#Volcán#VolcanoLava today. pic.twitter.com/JYTOpVLc1Y— Aldo Cardoza (@FamCardoza) June 3, 2018 Guatemala's disaster agency said 3,100 people had evacuated nearby communities, and the eruption was affecting an area with a population of about 1.7 million people. Shelters were opened for those forced to flee. An ash covered woman said lava poured through corn fields and she feared more had died. "Not everyone escaped, I think they were buried," Consuelo Hernandez told local news outlet Diario de Centroamerica in a video. Among the fatalities were four people, including a disaster agency official, killed when lava set a house on fire in El Rodeo village, Cabanas said. Two children were burned to death as they watched the volcano's second eruption this year from a bridge, he added.

Steaming lava flowed down the streets of a village as emergency crews entered homes in search of trapped residents, a video on a different local media outlet showed. The eruption forced the Guatemala City's La Aurora international airport to shut down its only runway due to the presence of volcanic ash and to guarantee passenger and aircraft safety, Guatemala's civil aviation authority said in a Tweet. #VolcánDeFuego �� hace erupción en #Guatemala ���� pic.twitter.com/rLgiyJxyaN— Noti Bomba (@notibomba) June 3, 2018 The volcano is located 25 miles  southwest of the capital Guatemala City and is close to the colonial city of Antigua, popular with tourists and known for its coffee plantations. Workers and guests were evacuated from the La Reunion golf club near Antigua. Video footage showed a black cloud of ash rising from just beyond the golf club. The lava river was running on the other side of the volcano. Volcán de Fuego y sus erupciones... pic.twitter.com/6T9TxQ6hOo— Guía espiritual. (@renato_lechuga) June 3, 2018 The huge plumes of smoke that could be seen from various parts of the country and the ash that fell in four of Guatemala's departments caused alarm among residents. David de Leon, spokesman for the National Disaster Prevention Authority said a change in wind was to blame for the volcanic ash falling on parts of the capital. The conical Volcan de Fuego,  Spanish for "volcano of fire," reaches an altitude of 12,346 feet above sea level at its peak.

Erdogan seeks to sway Turkey voters in Kurdish heartland

Sun, 06/03/2018 - 16:05

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday sought to persuade voters in the heartland of Turkey's Kurdish minority to vote for him in June 24 polls, arguing his party had done the most to rebuild the area and find peace after years of violence. Erdogan told a mass rally attended by thousands in the Kurdish-majority southeastern city of Diyarbakir that the area was enjoying "peace like never in the last 40 years" and that the "state had never been so close to the people". The authorities are still battling the insurgency that dates back to 1984 of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) which initially took up arms for a separate state but now demands more autonomy.
