  • Netanyahu heads into cabinet showdown as allies demand early Israeli elections

    Golocal247.com news

    Benjamin Netanyahu faces a showdown with his coalition government partners on Sunday as he tries to stop them from forcing early elections in the wake of his unpopular decision to agree to a ceasefire with Hamas.  Three of the smaller parties in the Israeli prime minister’s coalition have demanded elections as soon as possible and want to use today’s cabinet meeting to formally agree on a date for the vote.  However, Mr Netanyahu said he wants to keep the government together and is eager to push the date of the elections off for several more months.  “Prime Minister Netanyahu stressed that it is important to make every effort to preserve the Right-wing government,” said a spokesman for his Likud party. Mr Netanyahu on Saturday said he wanted his government to see out the end of its term, blaming the centre-Right Kulanu party for the turmoil. "If the Kulanu faction doesn't bring the government down - there is a government," he said on Twitter. "All Likud members want to keep serving the country for another whole year until the end of the term in November 2019."   Education Minister Naftali Bennett demanded to be given the defence portfolio, threatening to withdraw his eight seats from Mr Netanyahu's governing coalition Credit: MENAHEM KAHANA/AFP/Getty Images He is hoping a delayed election will leave more time for the Right-wing voters of his base to forget about last week’s ceasefire agreement with Hamas to stop fighting in Gaza.   Many Israelis on the Right wanted to see Israeli forces move more aggressively against the Islamist militants, who fired around 460 rockets and mortars into southern Israel during the fighting.  Mr Netanyahu’s defence minister resigned over the ceasefire and civilians in the southern city of Sderot, which is regularly targeted by Hamas rockets, burned tyres and blocked streets in protest. If the prime minister holds his ground and refuses to grant elections then coalition party leaders face a choice: they can stay in the government and allow Mr Netanyahu to limp on or leave the government and bring the coalition crashing down.  The smaller parties may be loathe to bring down the government because it will allow Mr Netanyahu to present himself as a responsible leader who tried to maintain Israel’s stability while other parties clamored for elections.  Profile | Benjamin Netanyahu The two sides may reach a compromise where Mr Netanyahu agrees to elections but on a longer timetable, possibly with elections in late March, which favours his own political interests.   Mr Netanyahu goes into the cabinet facing off against three of his own ministers. His main irritant is Naftali Bennett, the 46-year-old education minister and leader of the Right-wing Jewish Home party.  Mr Bennet, who was once Mr Netanyahu’s chief of staff, is trying chip away Right-wing voters from the Likud by promising a tougher line against Hamas.  The two men have a frosty personal relationship, with Mr Netanyahu’s allies accusing Mr Bennett of leaking material from cabinet meetings to undermine the prime minister.  Despite the chaos in the coalition and the corruption scandal swirling around him and his wife, Mr Netanyahu appears well placed to win an election and form a new Right-wing government.  A poll for Israel’s Channel 2 found that Mr Netanyahu’s Likud would win 29 seats in an election, making it by far the biggest party. The centrist Yesh Atid party would take 18 seats while the centre-Left Zionist Union would win only 11.  Mr Netanyahu has been prime minister since 2009 and served a brief three-year stint as prime minister in the late 1990s. If he is still prime minister in July next year, he will have overtaken David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, as the longest-serving leader of Israel.  The current government could continue serving until November 2019 but Israel’s coalition governments rarely serve out their full four-year terms.  The current coalition has 61 seats in the 120 parliament, known as the Knesset. One of Mr Netanyahu’s Likud MPs, Oren Hazan, was suspended for six weeks this week after insulting a defence ministry official.  Mr Hazan, who previously embarrassed the prime minister by taking a selfie with Donald Trump, can still vote but is barred from any other parliamentary activity. His suspension gives Mr Netanyahu’s weakened government even less room for manoeuvre.

    Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has proposed a major change in the way American universities deal with campus sexual assault and harassment allegations in a move rights groups say could harm survivors. Ms DeVos has wants to add protections for those accused and limit situations in which schools would be required by law to investigate complaints brought forward by alleged victims, changes she said will treat both sides fairly. The requirements for investigation include only incidents which occurred on the universities’ campuses or property under the school’s authority and in those cases, only if the incident is reported to certain officials.

Pierce said the aim of the resolution would be to put Lowcock's call "into practice." She gave no timeline for when the draft resolution could be put to a vote. The remaining four requests were for protection of the supply of food and essential goods, a larger, faster injection of foreign exchange into the economy through the central bank, increased humanitarian funding and support, and for the warring parties to engage in peace talks.

  • A weighty issue: scientists redefine the kilogram after 129 years

    Golocal247.com news

    The kilogram will no longer be measured against an actual weight, after scientists voted to start using an electromagnetic current. Since 1889, a kilogram has been defined by a single lump of platinum-iridium which is housed inside three glass bell jars at the headquarters of the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) , just outside Paris. But the master copy, known as ‘Le Grand K’, has been picking up microparticles of dust, or losing mass in cleaning, causing consternation for scientists using it to measure ever more accurate weights. Now, after a week-long meeting at the Palace of Versailles representatives of 60 nations agreed to redefine the kilogram based on the unchanging value of the ‘Planck constant.’ Instead of checking it against an actual weight, scientists can now find an exact kilogram by measuring the amount of electricity needed to lift it, using a special set of scales known as The Kibble balance.   Scientists have been trying for decades to define a constant value for the kilogram that is derived from laws of physics, in the same way they have done for other standard units. For example, a metre is not defined as 100 centimetres but "the length of the path travelled by light in a vacuum during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second". Scientists Yuning Duan and Gert Rietveld celebrate after the vote on the redefinition of four base units of the International System of Units Credit: Reuters  Describing what impact the new kilogram would have, the BIPM said: "In the same way that if you replaced the decaying foundations of a house with robust new ones, it may not be possible to identify the difference from the surface, but some substantial changes would have taken place to ensure the longevity of the property." The BIPM also voted to update definitions for the ampere (electrical current), the kelvin (thermodynamic temperature) and the mole (amount of a substance). Martin Milton, director of the BIPM, said: “The SI redefinition is a landmark moment in scientific progress. "Using the fundamental constants we observe in nature as a foundation for important concepts such as mass and time means that we have a stable foundation from which to advance our scientific understanding, develop new technologies and address some of society's greatest challenges." Barry Inglis, who heads the committee for weights and measures, said the implications were immense. "We will now no longer be bound by the limitations of objects in our measurement of the world, but have universally accessible units that can pave the way to even greater accuracy, and even accelerate scientific advancement," he said. The new definitions agreed by the BIPM will come into force on May 20, 2019.
