Young People Think Filibustering Is A Sex Act,Which Is Wrong

"Poor political education" is causing
young people to completely
misunderstand phrases used in
Parliament, a survey suggests.




Two-thirds of 18 to 25-year-olds polled by
the youth news platform Shout Out UK
believed "filibustering" was a slang term to
describe a sex act.




Filibustering is, in fact, when a politician
speaks for an extended period so as to
waste time and obstruct progress in a
parliamentary debate.



More than half of those polled thought the
Speaker was a villain in a game - and only
23% of people correctly answered that
they chair debates in Parliament.
Matteo Bergamini, founder of Shout Out
UK, said:

"We commissioned the survey
just to get an idea of what people's
knowledge is on political terms - we didn't
expect to get such funny results.



"Although it is funny that most young
people think filibustering is a slang sex
term, I think it reveals a deeper problem
that most 18 to 25-year-olds aren't
engaged or educated in politics enough."

Ku Klux Klan Leader Warns Of More Violence In US

Harrison, in Boone County, Arkansas has
had to deal with an unenviable
association - being home to the head of
the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.



In reality, Thomas Robb is living 15 or so
miles away on the outskirts of the city.

But as you approach Harrison, there are
clear signs of the challenges created by
their neighbour.




A billboard reads: "Diversity is a code word
for white genocide."


Mr Robb has tried to rebrand the Klan as a
gentler, more tempered group - one that's
driven by Christian values and is family
focused.



He took over leadership of the group in
the 1980s after the departure of David
Duke. Rather than the traditional title of
"Imperial Wizarder he opted for "National
Director".



He's employed Duke's strategy of using the
internet to reach a wider audience,broadcasting radio and TV shows.



The KKK's official newspaper, The
Crusader, endorsed Donald Trump and the
then Republican presidential candidate
clearly disavowed the group - saying he
didn't want to energise them.
Yet Mr Robb claims the group found a
voice in the 2016 election. In an effort to
remarket America's oldest hate group, he
now says it was the first "alt-right"
organisation, a term coined in 2010.



The headquarters is located on an uneven,
winding road. As I walk up to the
driveway, it's lined with flags. Mr Robb is
wearing a suit and tie.



He tells me: "This is where we do clerical
work, membership applications, reports
and we produce DVDs."



He has an almost polished facade, a far cry
from the hooded imagery that haunts
America.




Mr Robb tells me black people have a right
to be black and he just wants to protect
white identity.
Gay people, he says, are an "abomination".



They say this city is no different from
anywhere else, but they felt they had to
publicly confront the man living near them,
trying to create a "white paradise".




They tell me people were coming here for
25 years in the hope they could live
alongside other white supremacists.



But Kevin Cherie, an African-American man
in the group, says Mr Robb "gets his mail
here.


He uses this geographic location to
help people find him. That's the most
significant impact this man has. And I'm
speaking as a black man living here, who
with his family has been happy and
successful and productive".


They seem to represent the prevailing
attitude of this community.


Thomas Robb seems like an isolated
ideologue, but one they know they have to
acknowledge, an extremist who feels his
movement has new momentum.




The reality is his group is fractured - and
in many ways, is at war with itself.

New GCSE Grades System: What You Need To Know

A new system for grading GCSE results is
being used for the first time this year,
with the old A* to G grades being
replaced with numbers from 9 to 1.


- Which results will be affected?

The first courses to use the new marking
system will be the GCSE maths, English
literature and English language exams
taken in England this summer.

The other countries in the UK have
different exams systems and will continue
to use the old grading system.

The grading scheme will be extended next
year to include GCSE science exams.



- What do the grades mean?

The new grading system will score pupils
from 1 to 9, with grade 9 being the
highest mark and grade 1 the lowest.

The Government predicts that a pupil who
scored a C previously will receive a 4 this
year.

Similarly what would have been a low A
grade is now equivalent to a grade 7.

To get a level 9 is harder than getting an
A*, meaning far fewer students will get
the top mark.




- Why was the system introduced?

The new grading system should create
greater division between pupils' abilities
as there are more grades to split them
between.

Under the old system there were eight
categories (A* to G) whereas now there
are nine.

The new system was specifically created to
allow for more differentiation among high
achieving pupils, as those students who
previously got As or A*s will now be split
between three grades 7, 8 and 9.



- What to do if you've missed your
grades:
It is possible to retake GCSE exams in the
autumn to try and increase your mark.

If you have missed your grades, some A-
level or college course may still accept you
if you're planning to re-sit your exams.

But if you can't resit, you could take
another course where you made the
grades or apply to a different college as
not all colleges will require the same
grades.

If your grades are unexpectedly low you
can also request to see your exam papers
and consider asking for the paper to be
remarked.

EFCC, Magu Frustrating Anti-Graft War - Malami

The Attorney General of the Federation and
Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN),
on Wednesday accused the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and its
Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, of
frustrating the Federal Government’s anti-
graft war. Malami, in a statement issued in
Abuja, alleged that Magu and the EFCC
leadership have “manipulated and misused
intelligence to the detriment of the fight
against corruption and financial crimes in
Nigeria.”

He also accused them of working to prevent
the lifting of the country’s suspension by the
global financial intelligence gathering body –
Egmont Group of Financial Intelligence Units
(Egmont Group) and ensure the country’s
formal expulsion.

The Egmont Group, currently made up of
156 Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs),
representing 156 countries, serves as a
platform for exchange of expertise and
financial intelligence to combat money
laundering and terrorist financing and
functions as the operational arm of the
international anti-money laundering and
counter financing of terrorism (AML/CFT)
apparatus.

Fight Against Corruption : Public Administrators Canvasses To Tackle Menace

Institute of Public Administration of Nigeria
is advocating tougher punitive measures
against individuals who corruptly enriched
themselves in the country. Officials of the
Institute who expressed this view at a forum
in Abuja also called on the Federal
Government to diversify the nation’s
economy to move the country out of
recession. Public servants are often accused
of colluding with politicians to embezzle
public funds in the country.

Though the gathering of members of the
Institute of Public Administration of Nigeria
at this forum is to brainstorm on how the
country will move out of its current
recession. They all agreed that workers in
the country are having difficulties catching
up with the galloping increase of prices of
goods and services which according to them
is caused by recession.

For Nigeria to move out of the economic
quagmire, the public administrators say
government must diversify the nation’s
economy.

Restructuring Debate - Presidency Warns Against Harsh Words For Buhari

The Presidency on Wednesday advised those
it described as opinion leaders in the
country to exercise restraint in their choice
of words as they criticise President
Muhammadu Buhari based on his position
on ongoing calls for the nation’s
restructuring. The Senior Special Assistant to
the President on Media and Publicity, Garba
Shehu, gave the warning in a statement
made available to journalists in Abuja.
Shehu said the restraint was necessary to
avoid heating up the polity and causing
acrimony across the country.

He noted that while Nigerians are free to
express themselves, they should “exercise
such liberty with restraint and a sense of
responsibility.” The presidential spokesman
said calling Buhari an enemy of Nigeria was
in extremely bad taste. He added that
nothing in the President’s service record
would justify “such scurrilous language.”
Shehu said he was satisfied that majority of
Nigerians welcomed Buhari’s broadcast to
the nation on Monday.

He, however, said it was off the mark to
criticise him for not responding to calls for
restructuring.

Buhari's Speech An Anticlimax, Says PDP

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has
described President Muhammadu Buhari’s
Monday broadcast to the nation as a
monumental anticlimax, saying the
President missed an opportunity to calm
restiveness and frayed nerves among the
citizenry. In a statement last night, signed
by the party’s Head of Publicity, Chinwe
Nnorom on behalf of the National Publicity
Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, said the
speech failed to inspire confidence in the
people.

According to the PDP, the President’s speech
failed to inspire confidence, despite the fact
that Nigerians were expectantly looking
forward to a robust speech that could imbue
confidence in the capacity of the
government to take on the challenges of
governance.

“However, rather than rekindle that hope
and confidence, that speech delivered
earlier this morning can most charitably be
described as a monumental anticlimax.
