We knew there would be issues due to the watered down ‘Smith Commission’ Labour and Tory’s alike had a chance to make this easier for everyone but now, sadly we DO and WILL have tax issues. On one hand Scottish Politicians can’t vote on English laws for anything yet we here in Scotland, say if a tax break was given will make what we bring in less. This is an utter mess, the SNP should demand a ‘Back to the drawing board’ here. We MUST vote SNP People, otherwise we could find ourselves in no man’s land (Figure of speech) This is a shambles in the making. Hollyrood need to know yearly what income the have to work with, this will make it difficult for John Swinney to work his magic, the man can only do what he can do. Thankfully we have another bite at this Scotland, we can’t mess this up, we must inform, be informed and make sure people know EXACTLY what a Labour vote means.

THE `pick’n’mix’ deal on new post-referendum powers for Scotland could turn “messy” and leave Holyrood unable to make any “radical shift” in policy, economic and tax experts have warned.

MSPs were today warned that flagship proposals to hand some taxes to the Scottish Parliament – and leave others at Westminster – is a recipe for conflict between the Scottish and UK Governments. And Scots will be left in the dark over which taxes are Scottish, according to tax chiefs who warned it is “very difficult to pull apart” UK taxes.

The UK Government last month published legislation to enact the recent Smith agreement on more powers over tax and welfare for Scotland. It followed `the vow’ made the main pro-union party leaders in the final days of the referendum campaign to devolve sweeping new powers to Scotland after a No vote.

Economist Professor Anton Muscatelli, the principal of Glasgow University, told Holyrood’s devolution committee that he had concerns about the deal. “It reserves, for example, the personal allowance, it reserves national insurance contributions and one of the big issues is around in work benefits. “And by reserving universal credit, it does mean the whole interaction between welfare payments and low pay and income taxation is therefore not brought into play.“I do think that will create and potentially lead to tensions going forward – so how that is managed within future legislation will be hugely important.”

National insurance

Prof Muscatelli said national insurance is part of the “overall tax structure” and Scotland’s budget would effectively be cut if this is lowered UK-wide. “By not devolving national insurance, I think it creates the potential for conflict and it will impact on the Scottish tax base.”

Similarly, if the UK Government cuts the personal allowance – a tax hike – Scotland could respond by introducing a zero tax rate to cover such a change and effectively wipe this out. But Prof Muscatelli said: “It would force Scotland’s hand – and this where it gets a bit messy by not devolving the personal allowance.” He said it would have been better to devolve “all income tax and employment income to Scotland.”

Charlotte Barbour, Head of Taxation, at the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Scotland (ICAS) said the package offers a “variety of different taxes” to Holyrood.

Under the deal Scotland will get control over income tax bands – but not the personal allowance or national insurance. Air passenger duty and the Aggregates Levy will be devolved, while Holyrood will be “assigned” half of VAT revenues raised in Scotland. But there will be significant “joint responsibilities” with Westminster still in control of HMRC – the UK taxman.

“Scottish powers will have to interact with that and mesh together as well as going into the welfare side of it,” she said. “One of the issues that come out of that is that I’m not sure that a lot of people amongst the public have a full understanding of what Scottish taxes are.”

Ms Barbour said: “I think it’s very difficult to pull any one part of the UK taxes apart – it leads to these kind of set ups as to whether national insurance and income tax goes together.” The tax expert said this meant limits on Holyrood’s ability to push any through meaningful change in policy because income tax is “shared and over and above that interacts with other taxes.” She said; “I don’t think there’s a lot of scope to radically change what you’ve got here.”

I don’t know what’s worse, someone calling on kids having a snowball fight or the Cop getting his gun out on playing in the snow. Actually I jest, people are sad enough to call the police here too, but for a grown man, a police officer, a cop, who you in America pay his wage, to point a loaded gun at kids playing in the snow, well if you don’t think America is a police state after watching the video from ‘Live Leak‘ below, you are in denial and stupid, I am sorry, it’s that simple. You guys deny this happens and allow it to happen. I can’t even feel sorry for you any more America, this is ridiculous & embarrassing for your whole country. I will link up below, I seen this in live leak, an American run website to show you how and why you are a police state. Ironic hardly any of you even go near what the likes of myself write, that’s alternative news. A Snowball fight America, and the chances of a kid being shot were 50/50 here, keep this in mind, America, you are a ‘Police State’ You going to just ignore this? I don’t get you, I am lost. If this happened in my culture the Cop would be slapped and sacked.

This video picks up the action in the middle of things so it is not clear from the video what transpired beforehand. The video shows an NRPD officer using obscene language, ordering the already-kneeling youths to remain down. The officer is holding his firearm with both hands, pointed directly at one of the youths. He then approaches the young man, briefly frisks him with one hand while holding onto his firearm.

An alleged commander of the Islamic State in Pakistan, or Daish,  claims that his operations have been funded through channels in the United States. Yousaf al Salafi was reportedly arrested with two other men on January 22 in Lahore, Pakistan. The Express-Tribune reports that al Salafi had actually been arrested in December but had only recently been discussed publicly. He is alleged to have gone to Pakistan from Turkey and established an Islamic State group.

The Express-Tribune reported that a source close to the investigation into al Salafi confirmed that he “revealed that he was getting funding – routed through America – to run the organisation in Pakistan and recruit young people to fight in Syria.” The Commander claimed he was receiving $600 per individual who agreed to go to Syria. The report says these revelations were shared with Secretary of State John Kerry.

“The US had to dispel the impression that it is financing the group for its own interests and that is why it launched offensive against the organisation in Iraq but not in Syria”

– Source to the Express-Tribune

Julie Lenarz, executive director of the Human Security Centre thinktank, told the IB Times that much of Islamic State’s funding is being processed through the international banking system. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait, all allies to the US, have been tied to funding for the Islamic State.

Texas Declares Day To Honour ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle

Texas Declares Day To Honour ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle

Clint Eastwood’s ‘American Sniper’ -The true story below

By @ShaunyNews Via: http://news.sky.com/story/1418932/texas-declares-day-to-honour-american-sniper

After watching this movie I wrote this https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2015/01/22/the-soldiers-on-the-front-line-in-war-their-families-american-sniper-the-movie/ All the rubbish about it glorifying war, I ask, did these people watch the movie or were they too stupid to understand the book and movie were about what War does to not just the soldier but his family who suffer most in a sense of they hate it, the soldier more than not wants to be in the heat of action. Brilliant man is Chris, the movie did him and other service men and women justice

Texas has declared Monday “Chris Kyle Day” to remember the Navy Seal sharpshooter depicted in the Oscar-nominated movie American Sniper. The box office hit, starring Bradley Cooper as Kyle, has stoked fierce debate between the left and right. Republican Governor Greg Abbott tweeted: “I have declared February 2 to be Chris Kyle Day in Texas. We honor our military heroes.”

In his memoir, the 'real' Chris Kyle called Muslims 'savages'

Kyle, who is considered one of the most lethal snipers in US history with 160 confirmed kills, was allegedly killed by a disgruntled Marine veteran at a Texas gun range two years ago. Gov Abbott made the announcement during a speech at the Texans Veterans of Foreign Affairs Mid-Winter Convention in Austin on Friday.  In his speech, he described Kyle as “a man who defended his brothers and sisters in arms on and off the battlefield”

Michelle Obama waded in to the controversy over the film on Friday, describing it as a “complex, emotional depiction of a veteran and his family”. Clint Eastwood’s film – which has raked in more than $200m (£133m) – has been nominated for six Academy Awards, including best picture. Critics have said the movie glorifies bloodshed and Kyle, who called Muslims “savages” in his memoir, while whitewashing the story of the Iraq war. But supporters see it as a patriotic film which “honestly” examines the toll fighting takes on veterans.

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, a civil rights organisation, had asked Eastwood and Cooper to denounce hateful language directed at US Arabs and Muslims because of a rise in “serious threats” since the film’s release. In response, a Warner Bros spokesman said the company “denounces any violent, anti-Muslim rhetoric, including that which has been attributed to viewers” of the movie. He added: “Hate and bigotry have no place in the important dialogue that this picture has generated about the veteran experience.”

By @ShaunyNews Via: http://www.snp.org/media-centre/news/2015/jan/murphy-discounted-after-fewer-50-days-post

PLEASE REMEMBER: Gordon Brown was wheeled out, sold a lie then retired. He can’t be trusted, please spread this from the SNP far and wide. We can’t make the same mistake 3 times, Labour are dying, Jim is disliked in Scotland, so all off a sudden the man the UK voters blamed for the financial collapse is now touted as a Saviour. Desperate or desperate? Red Tory’s are gone, WE here in Scotland changed UK politics forever, we won’t be fooled again, in-case, we drive this message home with no hatred, just a love to be free from it all.

Reports today that Scottish Labour are turning to former Prime Minister Gordon Brown in an attempt to turn around their fortunes at May’s General Election have been described as “disastrous” for Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy by the SNP.

In today’s Herald, Labour sources say Mr Brown will be Labour’s “secret weapon” in Scotland and will be “deployed” in an attempt to win back support.

Gordon Brown was also described as Scottish Labour’s “secret weapon” in the run up to the Scottish elections in 2011 – which resulted in a landslide victory for the SNP with an unprecedented majority at Holyrood.

SNP General Election campaign coordinator Angus Robertson MP said:

“This is a disastrous story for Jim Murphy – he was supposed to be the person who would turn Labour’s fortunes around, but is obviously being discounted by his own colleagues after fewer than 50 days in the job.

“Just last week, the SNP had a tremendous council by-election victory in Gordon Brown’s constituency, which will no doubt have chilled Scottish Labour to the core.

“Labour have clearly run out of options – and in their desperation to try to hold on to votes they are turning to Gordon Brown as a last resort. Mr Brown of course isn’t a candidate in the General Election, and described himself as an ex-politician.

“Labour are paying a heavy price for their toxic alliance with the Tories – and in recent weeks they have made clear the alliance lives on as they voted with the Tories to support £30 billion more austerity cuts and waste £100 billion on Trident renewal.”

A British military healthcare worker has been evacuated from Sierra Leone after being accidentally jabbed with a needle while treating Ebola patients. The worker has returned to England for monitoring, according to Public Health England (PHE). The woman was flown back to RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire on Friday night and then transferred to an isolation ward at the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead, northwest London. The worker’s next of kin has been informed, according to PHE. It is understood the person, whose identity has not been released, has probably been exposed to the virus but has not been diagnosed with Ebola and is not displaying symptoms.

The official announcement said the worker suffered a “needle-stick injury”, which involves piercing of the skin. The injuries typically involved needle points but may also be done by other sharp objects, and are considered an occupational health hazard by medical workers. PHE director for health protection Professor Paul Cosford said: “Our thoughts are with this person, who has been courageous in helping those affected in West Africa, and in preventing the wider spread of Ebola.

“We have strict, well-tested protocols in place for this eventuality and we are confident that all appropriate actions have been taken to support the healthcare worker concerned and to protect the health of other people.” The medical evacuation was done as a precautionary measure after the worker was pricked by a needle at the Kerry Town clinic in the West African nation. There are currently around 600 British military personnel working in Sierra Leone, with Royal Fleet Auxiliary ship Argus stationed in the area.

The clinic was built on the outskirts of the capital Freetown to help treat patients infected by the virus, which has ravaged parts of West Africa. It includes an 80-bed treatment centre managed by Save The Children charity and a 12-bed operated by British Army medical staff designed to treat international healthcare workers and staff working in the area. London’s Royal Free Hospital also treated British nurses Pauline Cafferkey and Will Pooley – both were diagnosed with the disease after returning from treating patients in Africa.

In a statement the hospital said: “We can confirm that a UK military healthcare worker has been admitted to the Royal Free Hospital today following a needlestick injury while treating a person with Ebola in Sierra Leone. “The individual has been admitted to the Royal Free Hospital for assessment.” The patient will be monitored throughout the 21-day incubation period of Ebola.

Firefighters are trying to gain control of a massive fire engulfing a Williamsburg warehouse Saturday, as authorities fear the building might now collapse. The FDNY deployed a fire boat in the East River to battle the flames, which are sending plumes of thick smoke over the neighborhood.  Strong winds carried ash and soot that fell from above several blocks away from the waterfront blaze at North 11th Street. “I smelled this burning smell and I looked up and saw all of this smoke billowing,” said Heather Schmidt, 33, among the area residents with their scarves tightly wrapped around their faces to fend off the soot and smoke

“I’m about a mile away and the smoke was very thick all the way back there,” said Manhattan Ave. resident Anthony Charles, 40, who was standing on the corner of North 11th St. and Wythe Ave. and flying a drone about 200 feet above trying to catch footage of the blaze. “It’s crazy,” he said. “I smelled the smoke at about 6:30 am.” No injuries have been reported yet, officials said.

This picture has emerged showing the four Palestinian boys running on the beach in Gaza moments before they were killed by an Israeli shell

I ask before reading you scroll down and look at the kids, look at their faces, look in their eyes, due to Israel a generation of kids will now grow to hate, no help can be given, none will be given to the extent they lose hatred. Can we blame these kids for having hate? Israel killed their families and took the kids lives and turned them into adults in the blink of an eye. Anyone who supports Israel on what they did are blind, religiously blind usually. I bore myself saying this but I am yet to be challenged! “There are more Pro-Israeli people per populous % in America than every county on Earth, Israel included” I have written how and why Jews and Arabs don’t want to hate, many are married and in love with kids, these are the ones who refused the hatred. Palestine is a place where they struggle to live each day, Palestine has NO WAR MACHINE! Israel is a WAR MACHINE, One of the biggest on Earth! So we have the ‘Children of Palestine” Same children Israeli’s sang songs about when they died, remember? My thoughts and links below

An image that angers and confused Israeli supporters Worldwide, not that there are many!

Sayed Bakr lived through a deadly missile bombardment in the darkest days of the war in Gaza.But posing underneath a portrait of his closest brother, Mohammed, who he lost in that attack, proved too much. After volunteering to stand with the picture, the 12-year-old broke down and called for his mother. Sayed and his friends were the target of one of the most harrowing episodes of last summer’s war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. While playing football on the beach, they came under fire from an Israeli pilot who apparently mistook them for militants.

Four boys from the Bakr family died in the missile strike and four were injured. In the immediate aftermath, Sayed was left paralysed with terror, unable to speak, writhing hysterically against a wall.
Today, more than six months later, he is one of hundreds of thousands of children in Gaza who need treatment for shell-shock.

After his crying fits, nightmares and frequent violent outbursts he was given a course of powerful anti-psychotic drugs for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He no longer goes to school, and is frequently visited by visions of the blast.

“I used to dream that I was dead,” said Sayed, speaking hesitantly in the living room of his family’s spartan home, a few hundred yards from where the strikes happened. “I always saw my brothers and cousins running after me in the dream. When the missiles struck and we were running away, I was certain we were all going to die. “Even today I am in continuous fear. Whenever I hear a loud noise or a bang, I feel terror.”

He is not alone. There is no shortage in Gaza of stories of severely traumatised children still gripped by the after-effects of the war. The 50-day conflict left 539 Palestinian children dead and close to 3,000 injured, but according to United Nations, the mental scars have been just as devastating, if harder to quantify. Children who saw their siblings or parents killed, often gruesomely, have been left stricken and around 35 per cent to 40 per cent of Gaza’s million children are suffering from shell-shock according to Hasan Zeyada, a psychologist with the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme. On Wednesday, an Israeli human rights group said Israeli politicians and military leaders broke international law by persisting in bombing civilian homes, even after it became obvious that it would kill thousands of innocent people.

Unicef admits it lacks the resources to cope. “We estimate that 373,000 children in Gaza needed psycho-social support after the war,” said Pernille Ironside, head of the agency’s Gaza field office. “We have been meeting on an on-going basis about one-third of those. The other two-thirds still require support – and they are not getting it.” The outlook is grim even for those receiving help. Muntaser Bakr, 11, Sayed’s cousin, who suffered head, arm and back wounds in the beach attack, which killed his 10-year-old brother, Zakaria, has likewise been diagnosed with PTSD yet is arguably in an even worse plight. Drugs costing £66 per prescription – a huge burden for his impoverished family are needed to control periodic fits and nervous convulsions. Weeks after the incident, Muntaser tried to jump from a balcony in the first-floor family home in an apparent suicide attempt following a row with his father, Ahad, who caught him in the nick of time.

He had to be withdrawn from school after he “almost killed a boy” in his class, according to Mr Bakr, 55, a fishermen, like most of the men in his family. The violent tendencies have continued at home, culminating in him trying to hang the four-year-old daughter of one of his older brothers. “I die 100 times a day just seeing him like this,” said Mr Bakr, as Muntaser fidgeted beside him with two teddy bears. “He is not the same child. He won’t obey anything we say. If he wants something, he demands it no matter how it affects others. For a while, he used to say he wanted to become a fighter so he could avenge the deaths of his brother and his cousins. He has stopped saying it now and I don’t want to remind him.” While many boys affected by last summer’s carnage resort to violence, among girls the traumas often manifest themselves in withdrawn and depressed behaviour.

Ten-year-old Sara Kudaih is still haunted by the death of her younger brother, Anas, who died from blood loss after being wounded during shelling in the town of Khurza’a, near Gaza’s border with Israel.

The family were forced to flee under a hail of missiles, leaving seven-year-old Anas on the ground with a horrific stomach wound, a ghoulish scene witnessed by Sara and filmed by a Red Crescent paramedic who arrived hours later to find the dying boy. Today she is a frightened, introverted child who often refuses to eat or do homework, having previously been an excellent pupil, according to her parents. Asked how she is feeling, she replies: “Sad. I lost my brother. He was killed.”

Specialists have recommended 12 intensive therapy sessions to treat Sara’s PTSD. Even then, she is only likely to reach 70 per cent recovery, according to Mahmoud Abdul Aziz Abu-Toaima, a psychologist with the Palestinian Centre for Democracy and Conflict Resolution. She is one of the lucky ones. Diana and Mohammed Ayad, were orphaned after their widowed mother was killed during shelling of Gaza City’s Shejaiya neighbourhood as the family tried to evacuate their home.

Neither child has received psychological testing or support, despite experiencing enduring mental health problems, according to relatives, in addition to physical injuries that left Diana, 15, needing extensive skin graft surgery, and Mohammed, 10, having a toe amputated.

Diana, who once wanted to be a doctor, no longer attends school and is confined to the family’s shell-ravaged home by her injuries. “I feel very bad psychologically because of the incident and suffer badly from my leg injuries,” she said. “I’m not glad I survived. I wish I had died.” All this takes place against a backdrop of a dystopian landscape of ruined buildings and physical infrastructure – with the £3.3 billion reconstruction effort promised after the conflict having so far failed to get off the ground. Shejaiya, scene of some of the worst violence, looks little different from its shattered appearance last summer immediately after Israel’s ground offensive. It makes for a grim vista that has mental health professionals fearing a “lost generation” of Gazan children. “The recent war surpassed the combined number of deaths and injuries from all the previous conflicts and the impact that is having on the children of Gaza and their future looks absolutely bleak,” said Unicef’s Ms Ironside.”The adolescents here are at huge risk of losing hope and we face the danger of losing a whole generation of kids who decide they have nothing to lose and potentially get involved in militant activities.”

Experts raise alarm as plague kills dozens in Madagascar

Experts raise alarm as plague kills dozens in Madagascar

Bubonic Plague

Bubonic Plague

madagascarmapBy @ShaunyNews Via: http://edition.cnn.com/2015/01/31/health/madagascar-plague/index.html and my own words and links. If you don’t know European History the Bubonic Plaque killed 50 million people in the 14th century, or 60 per cent of Europe’s entire population. This is worse than Ebola in the way there is no real cure, it MUST be caught early, very early. Madagascar for many is a Movie, in reality it is home to 22.92 million people also it is a not far from the East coast of Africa. This is a place that has a lot of tourism so the chances of people spreading this are high. I know the many think the whole ‘Ebola’ saga was a flat news story, please keep in mind 10’s of thousands of people are dying STILL of Ebola in West Africa. Sierra Leone is a disaster area today.

The Bubonic Plague is a nasty thing, this is what we know about the disease. Bubonic plague is a zoonotic disease, circulating mainly in fleas on small rodents, and is one of three types of bacterial infections caused by Yersinia pestis (formerly known as Pasteurella pestis), that belongs to the family Enterobacteriaceae. Without treatment, the bubonic plague kills about two thirds of infected humans within four days.[citation needed]
The term bubonic plague is derived from the Greek word βουβών, meaning “groin”. Swollen lymph nodes (buboes) especially occur in the armpit and groin in persons suffering from bubonic plague. Bubonic plague was often used synonymously for plague, but it refers specifically to an infection that enters through the skin and travels through the lymphatics, as is often seen in flea-borne infections.
Bubonic plague—along with the septicemic plague and the pneumonic plague, which are the two other manifestations of Y. pestis—is commonly believed to be the cause of the Black Death that swept through Europe in the 14th century and killed an estimated 25 million people, or 30–60% of the European population.Around the Mediterranean Region, summers seemed to be the season when the disease took place. In northern Europe, the disease had its most frequent outbreaks in the autumn. Because the plague killed so many of the working population, wages rose with the demand for labor. Some historians have seen this as a turning point in European economic development.

Bubonic Plague Outbreak in Madagascar, 47 Already Dead
Via TheLipTV on You Tube

(CNN)An outbreak of the plague has killed dozens in Madagascar, and experts fear those numbers could go up. At least 119 cases were confirmed by late last year, including 40 deaths, the World Health Organization said in a statement. And the disease is taking an alarming turn. “The outbreak that started last November has some disturbing dimensions,” the WHO said this week. “The fleas that transmit this ancient disease from rats to humans have developed resistance to the first-line insecticide.” It’s especially spreading in densely populated slums in the capital of Antananarivo. Cases were confirmed in at least 20 districts and the capital, Christophe Rogier of the Institut Pasteur de Madagascar said late last year. Rogier is part of a team working with the WHO on the ground to combat the disease. In my city Edinburgh, Scotland we sealed off the city by covering over it, it is now called Mary King’s Close where you can tour, many tourist do and they guide explains how and why they sealed off thousands of people to keep the disease at bay, this was the seventeenth century

W.H.O are on the case

W.H.O are on the case

The last time with Ebola, at the start I said W.H.O and got a lot of this “What is WHO, I don’t understand” Just so people know it’s the “World Health Organisation” Also the C.D.C (Centre for Disease Control) will be on this also. This is a bad disease, we must contain this one, 8/10 die a hard death. http://www.cdc.gov/plague/faq/ This is an airborn disease and is easier to catch than Ebola

Rodents and rains

The plague is caused by Yersinia pestis, a bacteria found in rodents and spread by fleas. Recent flooding in the nation has displaced tens of thousands of people and an “untold numbers of rats,” leading to fears the disease could spread, said Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organization.

How is it spread?

Once an infected flea bites human beings, they can develop the bubonic plague, which is marked by swollen lymph nodes. If the bacteria reaches the lungs, one can develop pneumonic plague. The pneumonic type is rare but more dangerous than bubonic plague because it can be transmitted between humans through inhalation and coughing. “If diagnosed early, bubonic plague can be successfully treated with antibiotics,” the World Health Organization said. “Pneumonic plague, on the other hand, is one of the most deadly infectious diseases; patients can die 24 hours after infection.” At least 8% of cases advance to pneumonic plague, the WHO said. It’s unclear what percentage of the current cases comprise the more lethal plague. Past plague epidemics have have occurred in Europe, the United States, Africa, Asia and South America. The plague was known as the “Black Death” in Europe in the 14th century, and led to the deaths of 50 million people, the WHO said.
