Aiming to strengthen the economy in Haiti and promote stability there, a team from the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) is calling for investment in tourism, agriculture and the textile and assembly industry.In a report presented to ECOSOC today, the Ad Hoc Advisory Group dispatched by the Council to Haiti in April also called for strengthening public institutions in order to enable Haiti to optimize the major contributions announced by donor countries in recent months. The report provides recommendations to the Government and the international community on how to bolster development efforts in Haiti. The Group, headed by the Permanent Representative of Canada to the UN, also includes the Permanent Representatives of Benin, Brazil, Chile, Haiti, Spain and Trinidad and Tobago.“It is imperative that Haiti remains on the international agenda,” the report says, urging continued international support to foster stability. Poverty is endemic in Haiti, with 54 per cent of the population living in extreme poverty. The country also has the highest child and maternal mortality in the Western Hemisphere. Life expectancy is 52 years and women are in general more vulnerable than men. Evidence in the report makes clear that Haiti will not reach any of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a set of antipoverty targets to be achieved by 2015.At the same time, the Group cited progress since its last visit to Haiti two years ago, noting greater political stability and improved security. For example, the Group was able to visit the notoriously dangerous Cité Soleil neighbourhood in Port-au-Prince, which would have been too dangerous in the past. On the economic front, following a difficult period of negative growth and high inflation, reforms instituted by the Government have led to an expected growth rate of 2.5 per cent for fiscal year 2006 and a decrease in inflation from 38 per cent in 2003 to 8.6 per cent in February 2007.These figures “testify to the capacity of political authorities and the civil service to set up and follow a sound economic policy,” according to the report.While urging investment in key sectors of the economy, the report acknowledges that economic growth alone is not enough, and calls for strengthening Haiti’s State institutions. It also recommends that the adoption of a national poverty reduction strategy and calls for coordination mechanisms between donors and the Haitian Government as well as a system to track the disbursement of pledge funds. 20 July 2007Aiming to strengthen the economy in Haiti and promote stability there, a team from the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) is calling for investment in tourism, agriculture and the textile and assembly industry.
17 June 2011The Security Council today voted unanimously to split sanctions it has imposed on Al-Qaida and those against the Taliban, creating two lists of individuals and organizations so that they can be treated separately under efforts to fight terrorism. In two resolutions, the Council decided that the Al-Qaida sanctions list will include only names of “those individuals, groups, undertakings and entities associated with Al-Qaida.”Individuals and groups associated with the Taliban will be governed by a separate sanctions list and a Council committee will determine future requests for additions, updates or removals.Meanwhile, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the UN Office of the Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force (CTITF) today organized a one-day seminar in the Hungarian capital, Budapest, to promote awareness of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy and highlight concrete actions by countries in implementing the strategy.“For successful implementation of the strategy’s four pillars, exchange of information is vital,” said Yury Fedotov, the UNDOC Executive Director. “Each of the pillars is composed of the building blocks of information necessary to prevent and combat terrorism. To translate strategy into action, we need the quick transference of this information. We need greater regional and international cooperation.”The CTITF officer-in-charge, Rafiuddin Shah, said that only integrated plans to implement the strategy will lead to success.“There is need to develop cohesive regional strategies to address this issue in many parts of the world. Deep understanding of the problem, related capacity-building to tackle these problems and respect of rule of law and human rights need to be integrated in the terrorism response processes,” Mr. Shah added.The seminar was attended by counter-terrorism practitioners from more than 60 governmental and international organizations.
“While we’re not encouraging repatriation due to insecurity, lack of humanitarian aid and economic conditions unsuitable for large-scale returns, many refugees do want to go back and have long been clamouring to return,” a UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) spokesman told a news briefing in Geneva. Some 202,000 Iraqis, most of whom fled their homes during the first Iran-Iraq war 20 years ago, were in Iran earlier this year.“There have been reports that some refugees unwilling to wait for UN-facilitated convoys have gone back on their own,” spokesman Kris Janowski said. “Future convoys will depart Iran as needed to accommodate requests from any refugees seeking help to return.”It took months of arduous negotiations to arrange the start of these repatriation convoys, he added.After processing and mine awareness training at a transit centre a few kilometres from the frontier in southern Iraq, UNHCR local staff have given the returning refugees assistance packages containing mattresses, blankets, cooking utensils and a stove for each family, as well as tents for those in need of shelter.
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Magistrates handling an investigation into whether Golden Dawn has been operating as a criminal organization Tuesday sought the help of the Financial Crimes Squad (SDOE) and an independent anti-money laundering committee to access the bank accounts of MPs and officials of the ultra-right party.Judges are reportedly keen to scour the financial transactions of 32 people – including the six MPs arrested last week on charges of belonging to a criminal organization – in a bid to shed light on the party’s activities. It remained unclear when the order would be given to grant access to the accounts.Judicial authorities also sought the assistance of Parliament in extending their probe, asking the House to lift the immunity of three Golden Dawn MPs – Giorgos Germenis, Panagiotis Iliopoulos and Stathis Boukouras. Although the three MPs face the same charges as their six peers arrested last week, judges sought Parliament’s permission to lift their immunity as they are deemed to pose a less flagrant threat in view of last week’s decision to remand the party’s leadership.Judicial officials have broadened their probe to include the three MPs after former GD members testifying as witnesses claimed the lawmakers played a key role in organizing assaults on immigrants and training new recruits to the party. Boukouras was said to be storing and trading in weapons and to have had “absolute control” over the party’s activities in Corinth, including attacks on immigrants and protection rackets. Kathimerini understands that Boukouras and Golden Dawn members in Corinth are accused of being involved in a range of crimes, including assaults on leftists and the blackmail of local politicians and businessmen.According to sources, at least 10 more former GD members and supporters have asked to testify as protected witnesses.Parliament’s ethics committee is on Wednesday to examine the judiciary’s request for the immunity of the three MPs to be lifted. It will also examine requests to lift the immunity of MPs Ilias Panagiotaros and Ilias Kasidiaris, two of three GD MPs released pending trial last week, for separate cases of disturbing the peace, and of Chrysovalantis Alexopoulos for operating an illegal radio station in Larissa, central Greece.The MPs are to be summoned by the committee within two days while the House’s plenary session is to convene next week to debate the issue and decide when to vote.A police crackdown on GD continued Tuesday with the arrest of Yiannis Kazatzoglou, 34, who was allegedly a passenger in the vehicle driven by Giorgos Roupakias on the night of the murder of leftist rapper Pavlos Fyssas last month. Roupakias, who has been charged with Fyssas’s murder though claims to have stabbed the rapper in self-defense, is to defend himself before an investigating magistrate.Source: Kathimerini
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confronted the Burnley boss after a tackle on Joe Gomez in yesterday’s match in the EPLLiverpool defeated Burnley F.C. 3-1 in yesterday’s English Premier League action.But a tackle on Reds’ Joe Gomez made the manager Jurgen Klopp very angry and he confronted Burnley’s, Sean Dyche.“I was a little confused. I couldn’t make out what part of that was right and wrong,” Dyche told The Lancashire Telegraph.Mo Salah laughs off Sadio Mane incident with a brilliant video Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Mohamed Salah laughed off his little spat with Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane by posting a brilliant video showing they’ve made up.“What I would say is this, and I think it’s important to register: there were some excellent tackles last night. I think the only one that was questionable was Bardo’s [Phil Bardsley’s on Alberto Moreno].”“I think Ben Mee’s [on Gomez] was a fantastic tackle. I imagine a player who seems to be an honest player, in Gomez, realized that. That was the message we got after,” he added.“We send him our best if any injury has occurred but it wasn’t from a bad tackle.”“He didn’t reference Daniel Sturridge’s cheating when he went down, nothing near him, and he got a free-kick for it,” he explained.
Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger is looking forward to the chance to bounce back in the Premier League with a win over Fulham.He also feels the team just needs to keep doing the things that gave them such an impressive start to the season.However, while Rudiger is keen to make sure there are no mistakes as against Spurs, the German international is quick to point out there is no need to make wholesale changes to how the plays after such a good opening to 2018/19.He told Chelsea official website:Chelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.‘‘Just because of one game we don’t need to break our heads,’ said the defender.‘We need to take positives because until that game we were still unbeaten and if anyone had said that this would happen, I think 90 per cent would have said ‘no’. So we just need to stay focused and try to make this not happen again.”‘‘If we look back at this match many things didn’t go well, but there’s no use trying to look for excuses. It was a bad game and we need to learn from this because it was a huge lesson.”‘‘Of course the manager was disappointed but that’s normal after such a game. At the end of the day we don’t want to lose games, but sometimes we do.’’
Lakshmi’s NTRTwitterLakshmi’s NTR continues to rock the US box office with its collection crossing $250,000 mark in five days. This is the first movie of Ram Gopal Varma to achieve this feat in the country.Lakshmi’s NTR was premiered in 125 screens across the US on Thursday and opened to very good response everywhere. The movie was successful in impressing the viewers in the country and a strong word of mouth helped the movie make a decent collection at the US box office over the weekend.Lakshmi’s NTR collected a total of $243,720 gross at the US box office in the first weekend and it is highest earning for a film directed by Ram Gopal Varma. PaniPuri tweeted, “#LakshmIsNTR #USA Gross Premieres-$90,770 Day1-$68,202 Day2-$60,005 Day3-$24,744 Total Gross-$243,720. #SUPERHIT.”The biopic of late actor-turned-politician NT Rama Rao, which is inspired by Lakshmi Parvathi’s book, witnessed a steep decline in its collection on Monday. But the offers on ticket prices helped it show growth on Tuesday. As per early estimates, Lakshmi’s NTR has surpassed $250,000 mark at the US box office on its fifth day and Ram Gopal Varma has confirmed it on Twitter by releasing a poster. Lakshmi’s NTRTwitterRam Gopal Varma is one of the most successful directors down south. But of late, he has suffered a big setback with back-to-back failures. There was little scope for his movies to perform at the ticket counters in the US. However, Lakshmi’s NTR has surprised everyone with its good collection at the US box office and the credit for this success goes to the subject of the film more than his work.Lakshmi’s NTR has been jointly directed by Ram Gopal Varma and Agasthya Manju and produced by Rakesh Reddy and Deepthi Balagiri. P Vijay Kumar, Yagna Shetty, Sritej and Aningi Rajasekhar have essayed the roles of NT Rama Rao, Lakshmi Parvathi, Nara Chandrababu Naidu and Rama Subba Reddy, respectively, in the movie.

A group of 40 to 50 miscreants armed with sticks, machetes and firearms, launched the attack on the tail end of Khaleda’s convoy around 4:30pm shortly after the it had crossed the Fatepur level-crossing in Feni.Several vehicles damaged in the attack. Photo: Prothom AloWitnesses said the miscreants launched the attack near the Starline petrol pump which is owned by ruling Awami League leader and mayor Haji Alauddin. They were chanting ‘Joy Bangla’ during the attack.Joy Bngla is the slogan associated with ruling AL and its like-minded parties. Vehicles of Prothom Alo, BBC Bangla, Ekattar television, Boishakhi television and Channel i were among those vandalised in the attack.Miscreants damaged the windows of the Prothom Alo vehicle.Vehicles of different media outlets also damaged during the attack on the vehicles of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia’s convoy.

404 Bookmarks lists all dead Firefox bookmarks by Martin Brinkmann on February 06, 2017 in Firefox – 24 comments404 Bookmarks is a brand new browser add-on for the Firefox web browser that helps you identify and remove dead bookmarks from the browser.Most modern browsers support bookmarks, and it is easy enough to add them to the browser. In Firefox, all you do is click on the star icon to add it to the browser.If you do that regularly, you end up with a growing list of bookmarks in the browser. Not really a size problem, as Firefox handles large bookmarks lists well.The main issue however is that sites or pages may be removed from the Internet. Bookmarks that point to these sites are dead, or in worst case point to a new site that has nothing to do with the old.Firefox, like any other browser, offers no tools to check bookmarks regularly to make sure they point to active sites.I used to use AM-Deadlink for the checking, but the program is just a shadow of its former self now.404 Bookmarks404 Bookmarks is an excellent add-on for Firefox that adds the functionality to the browser. The add-on adds an icon to Firefox’s main toolbar. A click on the icon checks all bookmark locations, and returns any with problematic return codes.While 404 not found is probably the most common error, other errors such as HTTP error 410 (gone) are also recognized by the browser extension.Each expired bookmark is listed with its name, link, return code, and a remove action. It is recommended to check the bookmarks manually before you remove them, unless you are certain that you don’t require it anymore anyway.This is done with a click on the link to open it in a new tab in Firefox. Remove does exactly what it says, it removes the bookmark from Firefox so that it is not available anymore afterwards.The scanning of bookmarks is quite fast. The extension scanned the thousand or so bookmarks of Firefox in record time, and displayed first results right from the get go. This allows you to start checking and removing bookmarks while the scan is still ongoing in the background.The actual verification process is bit of a nuisance, as the 404 Bookmarks interface is an overlay that sits on top whichever sites you open in Firefox. This is probably less of a problem if you use a wide screen monitor and Firefox in full screen, but if you don’t, you may notice that sites load behind the overlay which makes checking less intuitive than it could be.The second issue with the overlay is that it goes away when you click somewhere else. An option to make it sticky for a period of time, or display the information in a tab instead would make the operation a lot smoother.The removal on the other hand is excellent, and works instantly and just as expected.Closing Words404 Bookmarks is a promising new add-on for the Firefox browser that helps you verify bookmarks, and remove dead bookmarks in Firefox. I think a tabbed display would work better for this kind of application though. (via Techdows)Chrome users can check out Bookmark Sentry or Bookmark Checker instead.Summary12345 Author Rating3 based on 5 votes Software Name 404 BookmarksSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/404-bookmarks/ Advertisement

Although smoking cannot be identified as the direct cause of cancer, many studies have shown that smoking increases one’s risk of getting cancer at some point in life.Doctor Yussuf Saloojee, executive director of the National Council against Smoking, would like to urge South Africans to quit smoking due to its harmful consequences.“The use of tobacco causes or aggravates about 43 different diseases, including 17 types of cancer, heart attacks, strokes and lung disease. Smoking does not cause TB, but people with TB are at greater risk of death if they smoke. Smoking during pregnancy also increases the risk of a stillbirth and miscarriage.”DID YOU KNOW?

time Mercury died it was already clear that celebrities could make a major difference Case in point: Rock Hudson Herbert Dorfman/Corbis —Getty Images When the Oscar-nominated star announced that he had AIDS in July 1985 it was enormous news for two reasons Not only was the disease poorly understood but Hudson’s diagnosis was also symbolic As TIME pointed out when the news broke he had “represented the old-fashioned American virtues” of the 1950s so some were shocked by a diagnosis that was seen to function as a simultaneous announcement that he was gay; at the time though many insiders were said to know about Hudson’s sexuality the magazine was able to declare that no major movie star had ever come out The shock precipitated a TIME cover story on AIDS later that summer in which the magazine described the impact of Hudson’s announcement: By early this year most Americans had become aware of AIDS conscious of a trickle of news about a disease that was threatening homosexuals and drug addicts AIDS the experts said was spreading rapidly The number of cases was increasing geometrically doubling every ten months and the threat to heterosexuals appeared to be growing But it was the shocking news two weeks ago of Actor Rock Hudson’s illness that finally catapulted AIDS out of the closet transforming it overnight from someone else’s problem a “gay plague” to a cause of international alarm AIDS was suddenly a front-page disease the lead item on the evening news and a frequent topic on TV talk shows There seemed no end to the reports Hudson died less than three months later at the age of 59 The TIME obituary described him as “the most celebrated known victim of AIDS” who “[i]n the last weeks of his life…became perhaps the most famous homosexual in the world” And within two months of his announcement Congress had approved a vast increase in funding for AIDS research “From his misfortune good fortune may have sprung” that obituary concluded “His friend and Giant co-star Elizabeth Taylor wrote perhaps the most eloquent epitaph: ‘Please God he has not died in vain’” Elizabeth Taylor testifies before a Senate sub-committee on May 8 1986 in Washington as chairman of the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) Jerome Delay—AFP/Getty Images Taylor would become a key fundraiser for the cause at the height of the epidemic The month before Hudson died she had been a hostess and co-chairperson of what’s been called the first major Hollywood benefit gala for the cause which raised about $12 million for AIDS research amid what TIME called “a growing panic” in Hollywood about contracting the disease She was also a co-founder of the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR); appeared before the Labor Health and Human services Senate Subcommittee to urge the passage of $80 million in funding for AIDS research; and in 1991 established The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation When she died about 20 years later her obits credited her with raising about $100 million for AIDS research And Taylor wasn’t the only non-HIV-positive celebrity who was inspired to get involved Celebrity diagnoses caused an awareness chain reaction: when someone whose friends were famous was HIV-positive those celebrities were often moved to speak up For example Madonna performed for 15000 at a benefit concert at Madison Square Garden in July 1987 shortly after the death of her close friend the painter Martin Burgoyne from the disease Such occasions had become “depressingly frequent occasions for New York’s beau monde” as TIME’s Richard Corliss put it back then Madonna at an AIDS Dance-A-Thon in Feb 1989 The LIFE Picture Collection—Getty Images The concert raised $400000 for amfAR Madonna’s album 1989 Like a Prayer also included an insert “Facts About AIDS” to encourage safe sex During her Blond Ambition tour she paid tribute to another artist friend who died due to AIDS Keith Haring (Some of her dancers who performed with her had been diagnosed but weren’t talking about it) In fact she had been so outspoken that in 1991 there were false rumors that she was planning a press conference to tell the world that she had been diagnosed as HIV positive AIDS activists slammed the rumors as homophobic and worried that the hype would discourage HIV-positive patients from disclosing their status That year however did see one of the most important real disclosures by a celebrity On Nov 7 1991 32-year-old LA Lakers point guard Magic Johnson revealed in a press conference that he was HIV-positive and would be retiring from basketball “I will now become a spokesman for the HIV virus” and safe sex he said The fact that he was a heterosexual African American athlete further underscored the fact that AIDS could affect anyone And lots of misconceptions needed to be debunked; some basketball players for example refused to play with Johnson because they thought they might get infected that way The impact of his announcement started to be seen right away “Calls to AIDS hot lines and testing centers more than doubled in most places the next day” TIME reported after the news broke High schools doubled down on condom distribution “[Because] he would not discuss how he might have contracted the disease but only implied it was from heterosexual contact he drove home the fact that anyone is vulnerable Johnson is also ideally placed to speak on AIDS to the two groups that are most in need of counsel: impoverished minority communities and the young” “Clearly this is tragic” said Norm Nickens chairman of the National Minority AIDS Council at the time “But we couldn’t ask for a better spokesman” Five months after Johnson’s announcement Arthur Ashe the first African-American man to win a Grand Slam title became the second major sports figure to reveal that he too had been diagnosed with HIV He had likely contracted it after receiving a blood transfusion while undergoing surgery but had kept the diagnosis private until USA Today asked him to respond to rumors that he had the disease Tennis star Arthur Ashe accompanied by wife Jeanne announcing he contracted HIV after a blood transfusion on Apr 8 1992 in midtown Manhattan Michael Norcia/New York Post Archives—Getty Images “It was just bad luck that Ashe underwent major surgery after the AIDS epidemic began but before tests to detect the virus in the blood supply became available in 1985” TIME reported “Since then only 20 of the nation’s more than 200000 AIDS cases have come from transfusions of tested blood while nearly 4500 have been attributed to untested blood Nowadays according to the Centers for Disease Control the chances of contracting the disease from a transfusion are 1 in 61000 More people are killed by lightning” By the time Ashe died on Feb 6 1993 he had established the Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health was active in AIDS research efforts at Harvard and UCLA and gave speeches to raise awareness Shortly after his death his wife photographer Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe wrote a children’s book about Ashe and his young daughter to raise awareness about how a parent with the disease can still raise a child and live a fulfilling life As the 1990s continued and AIDS research made serious progress celebrities were an important factor in keeping that ball rolling Julie Andrews and Jeremy Irons during the 45th Annual Tony Awards on Jun 2 1991 at Minskoff Theater in New York City Ron Galella—WireImage/Getty Images For example actor Jeremy Irons is credited with popularizing the wearing of a red ribbon to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS research having worn one while hosting the Tony Awards on Jun 2 1991 The brainchild of activist group Visual AIDS the organization once said the color red was chosen “because of its connection to blood and the idea of passion not only anger but love” That awards ceremony was targeted because the epidemic had hit the theater community particularly hard And it was during the same period that Elton John established the Elton John AIDS Foundation partly inspired by the friendship he had formed with Ryan White an American teenager whose treatment after an AIDS diagnosis made headlines in the late 1980s John has also said that he took up the cause of AIDS awareness because he felt he had dodged a bullet by managing not to get infected As he said in 2012 “By all rights I shouldn’t be here today I should be dead six foot under in a wooden box I should have contracted HIV in the 1980s and died in the 1990s just like Freddie Mercury just like Rock Hudson Every day I wonder how did I survive” Diana Princess of Wales shakes hands with an AIDS victim as she opens a new ward for AIDS patients at the Middlesex Hospital on April 9 1987 in London Anwar Hussein/WireImage—Getty Images In the summer of 2018 his foundation launched a $12 billion partnership with Duke of Sussex Prince Harry focused on boosting diagnosis and testing of young men ages 24 to 35 Harry’s mother Princess Diana had also championed the cause shocking the world in 1987 when she shook a patient’s hand without wearing a glove during the opening of the first ward for HIV/AIDS patients at Middlesex Hospital in London At the time many people erroneously thought they could get the virus from that kind of casual contact The stigma was so pervasive however that the patient in the photo was reportedly the only one in the ward who agreed to be photographed and only on the condition that his back would be facing the camera The work celebrities did at the outset of the AIDS epidemic paid off in ways that go beyond the important work of destigmatization Thanks in part to the money and awareness they helped raise great progress has been made in the years since Freddie Mercury died Just a few years after Magic Johnson left the NBA treatments had advanced enough that he felt well enough to return to basketball in January of 1996 signing a $25 million contract for the second half of the season “Enjoy life” he was quoted saying at the time “Live I’m not just talking about people with HIV or AIDS but about people with problems or handicaps or whatever For people who have HIV come out and share your life with somebody and make them feel better” The Feb 12 1996 cover of TIME Walter Iooss Jr His NBA career ended that spring though internal disagreements with coaches and teammates not his health were cited as the reason But his career as a HIV/AIDS awareness spokesperson is still going strong After all because there’s still no cure for HIV or AIDS the role stars play in amplifying grassroots activism is no less important today than it was when Freddie Mercury first made news Correction: Nov 5 The original version of this story misstated the name of a Columbia University expert He is Ronald Bayer not Robert Bayer Write to Olivia B Waxman at oliviawaxman@timecomCongressional leaders struck a deal with the White House Monday night that would fund the government and raise the debt ceiling through the 2016 elections effectively removing the final fiscal cliff from President Barack Obamas tenure Congressional leaders are aiming to pass the bill which will face its first hurdle on the House floor Tuesday through the lower chamber before Paul Ryan in sworn in as the 62nd speaker on Thursday thus clearing most of the controversial legislation pending before Congress through the election or "cleaning out the barns" as House Speaker John Boehner pledged to do before he retires at the end of the month On Monday night as both chambers returned for votes in Washington leaders briefed members about the bones of the deal Republican senators left largely positive about the deal "There was no orthopedist in the room" chuckled Sen Johnny Isakson a Georgia Republican "There were no broken bones Not even a sprain so far as I saw" Read More: The Four Biggest Challenges for Speaker Ryan House Republicans were less impressed especially the right-wing Freedom Caucus a 40-member group who in the last month took down Boehner and his heir apparent Kevin McCarthy in their opposition to the establishment "Youve got five people negotiating this thing" scoffed Rep David Brat a Virginia Tea Partier who unseated Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a primary last year "I thought Republicans had the House and the Senate that’s not clear to me from this deal" Freedom Caucus members emerging from Monday nights meeting called on incoming speaker Ryan to oppose the deal Ryan meanwhile had little to say about the bill His office referred inquiries to Boehners office and noted that a final agreement had yet to be made But its hard to imagine Ryan moving to block what is essentially Boehners parting gift to his successor If passed into law the deal would clear the decks of controversial measures for both Ryan and the Republican presidential candidates many of who have watched Boehners abdication and the downfall of McCarthy roil the party at a time when it needs to begin uniting behind a platform and a candidate It will give Ryan more than a year of breathing room to establish his own speakership and governing style Highlights

enacted when Congress failed to resolve the 2011 fiscal clifffor fiscal year 2016 to the tune of $25 billion apiece for the Pentagon and entitlements and $15 billion each for fiscal year 2017 It would also add $16 billion in additional discretionary spending also equally split for each fiscal year The $32 billion in additional funds which will be deposited in the Pentagons overseas contingency operations accountessentially a giant petty cash fundwould not be offset Finally it would mitigate projected cuts by 53% to Medicare Part B payments The bill would be partially offset according to staff from both sides of the aisle using spectrum sales crop subsidy reforms recalculating the formula for Social Security disability payments and by potentially adding a year to the back end of the sequester But as it currently stands it would only be about 70% offset something that will surely enrage fiscal conservatives The rest would draw from deficit spending In years past this was usually the moment the deal would collapse: House and Senate negotiators would come to a bipartisan deal only to see it derailed by conservative opposition in the House But this time Boehner has nothing to lose if he breaks the so-called Hastert rule and passes the deal on the backs of Democratic votes He will be gone from Congress by the end of the week Boehner had always planned to pass the baton to McCarthy by the end of the year but he moved that timeline up when he saw he could lose a confidence vote in his speakership "John intended to get the two-year budget and the debt ceiling done before he left with his departure date at the end of the year and I think when he moved up his departure date he was in a much better position to put together what was going to be a tough vote for a lot of Republicans and take the blame for us" says Sen Richard Burr a North Carolina Republican and one of Boehners closest friends "So it shouldnt shock us thats who he is" In his 24 years in Congress Boehner always wanted to be a dealmaker From his first days in office the only portrait he had hanging on his wall was one of the last speaker from Ohio Nicholas Longworth who famously held nightly bipartisan drinks with his Democratic counterpart John Nance Garner known as the "Bureau of Education" But Boehners Faustian bargain in 2010 empowering Tea Party candidates in order to take back the House resulted in another kind of education altogether one that proved politically fatal for the old-school institutionalist Boehner And so having been forced from his perch by a group of unruly conservatives punished for being too much like his idol Longworth in passing bipartisan compromises out of the House Boehner is finally poised to do what he never could freely do as Speaker: pass important legislation In doing so he saves the GOP from a bruising intra-party battleor at least punts it to after the election when it would theoretically do less political damage What will Boehner do when hes done committing political hari-kari "Go to Disneyland I imagine" laughs Burr Contact us at editors@timecom" (ORI only investigates misconduct that took place within 6 years of an
