Defender patrol boats combine an unmatched ability to conduct high-speed maneuvers in a compact deployable package
DJIBOUTI CITY, Djibouti, February 28, 2020/APO Group
Four Defender patrol boats arrived in port at Djibouti City, Djibouti, in two shipments in late February as part of a train-and-equip partnership between the U.S. Department of State and the Djiboutian military.
They are used extensively by the U.S. Coast Guard and other Department of Homeland Security agencies
The 27-foot boats were delivered to the Armed Forces of Djibouti (FAD) on February 22 for use by the Djiboutian Navy.
Defender patrol boats combine an unmatched ability to conduct high-speed maneuvers in a compact deployable package. They are used extensively by the U.S. Coast Guard and other Department of Homeland Security agencies.
The delivery, facilitated by U.S. Embassy Djibouti, U.S. Africa Command, U.S. Naval Forces Africa, and Combined Joint Task Force—Horn of Africa, reflects the enduring security relationship enjoyed by the United States and the Republic of Djibouti.

A German city has officially declared a “Nazi emergency” after seeing an increase in far-right extremism.
Councillors in Dresden said they passed the resolution to protect minorities against dangerous views and rising violence.
Officials became uneasy when far-right groups like PEGIDA and Alternative for Germany gained more support in the city, Deutsche Welle reported.
Die Partei councillor Max Aschenbach, whose party brought forward the resolution, said: “We have a Nazi problem in Dresden and have to do something about it.”
He added in an interview with the BBC: “‘Nazinotstand’ means – similar to the climate emergency – that we have a serious problem. The open democratic society is threatened.”
The resolution won cross-party support, with members of the Greens, Left Party, Social Democrats and Free Democrats backing it.
The policy statement said: “Anti-democratic, anti-pluralist, misanthropic and right-wing extremist attitudes and actions, including violence in Dresden, are occurring with increasing frequency”.
Mar walba aragtida waxaa laga eegaa dhinaca wanaagsan,balse in la qaadaa dhigo wixii la isla gaadhey ma xuma oo waa fikir ka dhiibasho iyo aragti guud uun.

Social Media and Addiction
How People Become Hooked on Social Media and What to Do About It
Researchers at Michigan State University have found that people who report using social media a lot tend to struggle with decision-making. As part of their study, participants answered questions about their social media use. The questions were tailored to see how dependent people were on social media, as well as how they felt when they couldn’t use it and how they would feel about never using it again.
After the survey, the participants completed a common psychological task known as the Iowa Gambling Task, which helps gauge value-based decision-making skills. During the task, the goal is for the participants to collect as much money as possible. The researchers found that those participants who spent more time on social media were likely to have less money at the end of the task. Meanwhile, those who spent less time on social media finished the task with more money.
Because this type of deficit in decision-making skills often goes hand-in-hand with drug addiction as well as a gambling addiction, the researchers likened the results of excessive social media use to aspects of an addiction.
In another study, researchers explored what it would “cost” for certain participants to deactivate their Facebook profiles for up to one year. Consequently, experimental auctions revealed that it would anywhere from $1,000 to more than $2,000 for participants to cancel their Facebook profiles for that length of time.
Still, some users refused to bid at all, which researchers believe signaled their dependence on Facebook and their unwillingness to even consider deactivating their accounts. These results show just how dependent, or addicted to, social media some people are that they would not even consider deactivating their accounts for a year, despite being paid.
Other Issues With Excessive Social Media Use
For some people, the thought of not being able to check their social media accounts causes them to break out in a cold sweat. They get nervous and anxious and are not sure how to handle the situation. When this occurs, therapists often refer to this as social media anxiety disorder, which may share similarities to social anxiety disorder.
This connection is not surprising given that anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorder in the United States; and technology seems to be making things worse. In fact, appears that the more technology people acquire, the more stressed out they become.
For instance, researchers estimate that 20 percent of people with social media accounts cannot go more than three hours without checking them; and for people with social media anxiety disorder, just being away from their social media accounts for just a few minutes can cause severe anxiety.
Signs You (or Your Teen) Are Hooked
Aside from the obvious anxiety and nervousness that being away from social media can cause some people, there are some other telltale signs that they may have an addiction to social media. These include everything from isolating themselves from others, losing interest in activities they once found enjoyable, and getting agitated, angry, or anxious when they are unable to check social media. Following is a closer look at some of the signs that you (or your teen) may be hooked on social media:
Anxiety, agitation, or anger when you cannot check social media. Not being able to check social media is not a life-threatening situation. But, for some people, not being able to get online and check their status and their updates can feel like one. Even though they may feel embarrassed or confused by their reactions, they often feel like they cannot control their feelings or their situation.
Interrupt conversations to check social media. Sometimes people can be so obsessed with the online world that they have trouble staying in the moment or paying attention to what others are saying. Consequently, their faces are often buried in their phones; or, they may appear distracted and constantly check their phones.
Lie to others about how much time is spent online. Most people who struggle with social media addiction are embarrassed by how much time they spend online. So, they lie to their loved ones about how much they are scrolling social media. They know they should not be online so much, but they just cannot help it.
Withdraw from family and friends. When social media addiction progresses, it can become consuming of a person’s time and energy. As a result, a person with an addiction to social media will withdraw from family and friends and spend most of their time in the virtual world.
Lose interest in other activities. As social media takes up more and more time, it becomes the most important thing in a person’s life. Consequently, the addicted person will spend the bulk of their time on social media and very little time doing the things they once loved.
Neglect school or work in favor of social media. One hallmark of addiction, is the way that it consumes a person’s time, energy, and attention. For this reason, many people with social media addiction often neglect their schoolwork or their work assignments because they cannot tear themselves away from social media.
Experience negative impacts to your personal or professional life. One of the biggest indicators that you or your teen has a problem with social media is when it starts interfering with your life in a negative way. For instance, grades start dropping and deadlines are missed for school or work are definite indicators that there is a problem.
Feel stressed and that your life is lacking. It is important to remind yourself (and your teen) that what you see on social media is just another person’s highlight reel. They have normal, boring days filled with work and obligations just like everyone else. Remind yourself that if social media makes you think that your life is boring, it is not going to get any better sitting there obsessing about it. You have to get out and enjoy your life – experience it – not just document it.
Practical Ways to Monitor Social Media Use
Whether you want to monitor your social media use, your teens’ use, or both, there are a number of steps you can take to see not only how often you are using social media, but also to determine if you are using it in healthy and productive ways.
When notifications from social media ping on your phone all day, every day, it can be challenging not to toggle over to your social media accounts and see what is happening.
For this reason, it can be extremely useful, and preventative, to turn off the notifications on your social media accounts. This way, instead of social media beckoning you to check out what people are posting or saying, you are in control. As a result, you are free to check social media at times that are convenient for you rather than feeling you should check right away when your phone pings.
Meanwhile, you may want to turn on notifications for when your kids post to their social media accounts.
In other words, you can set up notifications on your account to notify you know anytime your teen posts something on their social media account. This way, you can see what they are posting, how often they are posting, and determine if they need some tips on digital etiquette or to take something down.
With notifications, hopefully you see a questionable post before too many other people do.
See Certain Posts First
On some social media accounts, like Facebook, you can set guidelines that allow you to see certain social media posts first. What’s more, you also can indicate who your “close friends” are so that you get notifications when they post. (You can still get notifications when they post that do not alert your phone immediately. Instead, these notifications are only listed in the notifications tab.)
When you set up these types of parameters on social media, you are making it work for you instead of allowing it to push you into behaving or interacting in a certain way. Additionally, these types of parameters make it much easier to just see what you want on social media rather than scrolling through every post in your feed. This way, it is much easier to limit the time you spend on social media.
Conduct a Social Media Audit
One of the best ways to get a picture of how you or your teen is using social media, is to conduct a social media audit. Take a look at the posts, photos, and comments. Then consider what these things say about you and your social media use.
For instance, are you posting every day, multiple times a day? Or do you go days or even weeks without posting? If you find that you are posting every day, multiple times per day, you may want to take a closer look at how much time you are spending on social media.
Your social media audit could be your first clue that things are starting to go off the tracks somewhat.
Track Your Time on Social Media
Whether you use your phone’s settings or get a free app like Quality Time, there are countless ways to manage your time and track how much time you are spending not only on your phone but also on social media, Netflix, and online gaming.
Once you know how you are spending your time, you will be able to set goals and limits for your social media use. Additionally, some apps allow you to add family members so that you can all disconnect or unplug together as well as keep one another accountable.
A Word From Verywell
Social media is a fun way to document and share your life, especially with friends or relatives that live far away. But just as with anything else in life, there is such a thing as too much. If you find that you (or your teen) are spending a lot time on social media, and it makes you anxious when you cannot check your posts or see what others are doing, then that is a red flag that something is wrong. It is time to take some steps to cut back and truly experience life around you rather than just document it.
Additionally, if you are showing signs of social media anxiety, or if you feel like social media is impacting your decision-making, you may want to schedule some time with a counselor or therapist. They can help you work through your anxiety and make sense of your feelings as well as provide you with ideas on how to make healthy changes in your life.

The programmes will be delivered in partnership with the Somaliland government to promote long-term stability in the region. Published 11 September 2019 From: British Embassy Mogadishu and DFID Somalia
The UK yesterday signed an agreement with the government of Somaliland and Denmark to support the implementation of Phase II of the Somaliland Development Fund (SDF2) programme, which aims to improve lives of local people through the delivery of essential public services.
SDF2 (£25 million, 2018 to 2022), will be delivered in partnership with the Somaliland government to promote long-term stability in the region. It will include building of critical infrastructure, such as roads, water systems and agricultural facilities, and will also help build capacity within Somaliland’s institutions. The new programme which is aligned to Somaliland’s National Development Plan II (NDPII) will build on the achievements of the original SDF (2013 to 2018) programme.
The UK and Somaliland also signed a renewed Memorandum of Understanding to support the implementation of the Energy Security and Resource Efficiency in Somaliland (ESRES) Programme that aims to provide a clean, affordable renewable energy boost in Somaliland.
The agreements were signed by President Bihi and Damon Bristow, the Head of Office for the UK’s Department of International Development (DFID) in Somalia. Also present at the signing ceremony was the British Ambassador, Ben Fender, and the Head of the British Office in Hargeisa, Stuart Brown.
Speaking after the signing ceremony at the Presidential Palace in Hargeisa, Damon said:
The UK is committed to supporting the people of Somaliland. We recognise the efforts being made to improve institutions and to provide access to basic services for local people.
SDF 2 will ensure that ordinary people across Somaliland will benefit from improved services by supporting the growth of Somaliland’s economy.
ESRES will address the high costs of electricity in Somaliland and help promote green growth and poverty reduction by increasing access to more affordable and reliable renewable energy services.
While in Hargeisa, Damon visited the Hargeisa Water Agency which SDF is supporting to supply clean water to the people of Hargeisa. He also visited the Somaliland Roads Development Authority (RDA) to discuss the UK’s investment in roads and supporting the RDA’s capacity to deliver on quality and safeguarding standards.
- The Somaliland Development Fund (SDF) provides a single vehicle through which donors can support Somaliland’s development goals, supporting projects that are fully aligned to the National Development Plan.
- The UK-funded Energy Security and Resource Efficiency in Somaliland (ESRES) programme has supported the installation of Six hybrid mini-grids providing clean energy and lowering energy prices in sites across Somaliland

Mudane Axmed Cismaan oo Media ha hadlay oo leh Dawlada Jabuuti ayaa dacwad igaga furan tahay ma maqal melena kuma arag qoraal iyo cod uu lee yahay oo uu ku muujinayo arintaa.

Ganacsade Axmed Cismaan :
Ganacsade Axmed Cismaan waa muwaadin Somaliland ah,Waxaana uu lee yahay xuquuqda sharci ee muwaadinka Somaliland lee yahay ee ku xusan dastuurka iyo shuruucda kale ee dalka.
Sidaa darteed Xuquuqdiisa dhinac kastaba waxaa ilaalinaysa Dawlada Somaliland sida:
Hadii uu dalka gudihiisa joogo iyo hadii uu debidiisa joogo ba.
Muwaadin Somaliland ah hadii dacwadi kaga socoto dal debeda ka ah dalkiisa ama lagu xidho waxaa dalkaasi ama maxkamadaasi la dacwoonayaa waa wasaarada arimaha debeda ee Somaliland oo xidhiidh la sameyneysa Wasaarada arimaha debeda ee dalkaasi uu muwaadinka Somaliland ku xidhan yahay ama gartiisa lagu qaadayo,Markaa dawlad iyo dawlad ayaa arintu noqoneysaa, iyada oo lagu dhaqmayo qaynuunka caalamiga ah (International Law).
Sidaa darteed iyada oo Somaliland Dawlad lee dahay yaanba la aqoonsane in Ganacsade Axmed arintiisa saraadiin,odayaal reer ku cumaamadani ka hadlaan waa arin aad u liidata oo weliba xamaasad iyo hanjabaad dusha lagaga tuuro qaranka Somaliland arintaasi waxay jidkeeda mari lahayd:
Odayda Beesha arab hadii ay doonayaan qaab dhaqan in arinta loo xalilo waa in ay beesha Ciise gaar ahaan jilibka madaxweyne geele garta u dhigtaan oo arinta beel beelka dhigaan iyo arin dhaqan balse hadii dawlad muwaadinkeeda difaacda la doonayo horta waa in la hubiyaa sida ay wax u jiraan,cida haysatad Axmed ka dibna si qaranimo ah loo wajahaa xaalada ganacsade Axmed oo gartiisa la gala,cadaaladna lagu gala si wadajirna loo xaliyaa balse inta odayaal arinta reereenayaal qaranka meeli ugama banana arinta ee reerahu sharciyadooda dhaqan ha ku xaliyeen oo Ismaciil Cumar Geele iyo Axmed Cismaan Geele odaydoodu ha ku dhexgaleen xeerarka beelahooda,Somaliland iyo Dawladeedana faraha halaga qaado hadiise la rabo in dawlad iyo dawlad loo garamo oo Axmed arintiisa lagu furdaamiyo shuruucda qaranka Somaliland iyo kuwa caalamiga ah ee ilaalinaya xuquuda muwaadinka Somaliland ,Axmed waxaa la gudboon inuu dacwadiisa u gudbiyo wasaarada arimaha debeda ee Somaliland,si wasaarada arimaha debeda ee Jabuuti u diyaariso jawiga loo qaadayo dacwadaha ku saabsan Axmed si shuruucda caalamiga ah loo waafajiyo labada sharci ee labda dal.
Sidaa darteed Mudane Axmed waxaa difaaci kara waa qaranka Somaliland iyo shuruucdiisa,waana muhiim in Axmed sharcigu difaaco naftiisa iyo maalkiisa intaba,waanuna eegi doonaa xaalada Axmed balse Qaab ku dhisan Reer laguma difaaci karo qadiyada Axmed ee waa in aynu Qaran ku difaacnaa.

An incredibly honest cleaner who found £300,000 in cash on a London bus decided to hand it in to the police rather than keep the stash of money that could’ve settled them for a lifetime.
The cleaner, hired by Cordant Cleaning, found the money in a brown envelope after an absent-minded passenger left it there.
Had the lucky finder kept the money they most certainly wouldn’t have needed to carry on scraping floors for a living.
But the cleaner, whose identity hasn’t been disclosed, sacrificed the prospect of a future lavish lifestyle and rather than nicking the hefty sum, returned it to the Met police.

Some of the cleaner’s colleagues, however, ran into far less attractive items left behind by travellers that just had to be binned.
They include a deep fryer found on a bus in Leeds and a positive pregnancy tests in Southampton.
Sex toys and soiled nappies were also found in Leeds, while a pair of dirty knickers in London were one cleaner’s lucky find.
Vomit containing false teeth was found on a bus in Southampton, where someone also dumped poo with a flag stuck in it.
But the most revolting finds by Cordant Cleaning staff were on a Glasgow double-decker – a used tampon tied to a handrail and a large fresh animal heart under a seat.
Cordant boss Guy Pakenham said: “More often than not I’m left shocked when my team tell me about the disgusting things they have to get rid of when cleaning buses up and down the UK.
“But I can only praise their dedication and good humour.
“They don’t seem to be fazed by anything.
“Thankfully our staff are fully trained and equipped to deal with cleaning hazards like these.
“But we can only urge passengers that next time they defecate on the floor of a bus, or throw up their own false teeth, please remember
to take all of your items with you.”

The summit will also provide an opportunity for leaders to discuss the latest developments in the region, such as the situations with the Middle East Peace Process, Yemen, Libya and Syria.
The European Union (EU) – League of Arab States (LAS) summit will be held in the International Congress Centre in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, on 24-25 February 2019. The summit will for the first time bring together the heads of state or government from both organisations.European Council President Donald Tusk will co-chair the meeting together with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker also representing the EU.
The EU High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy / Vice-President of the Commission, Federica Mogherini, and the Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn will also attend the summit.
The summit will seek to strengthen Arab-European ties. Leaders will address a wide range of current challenges and common opportunities, such as multilateralism and the rules based global order, trade and investment, migration, climate change and security. The summit will also provide an opportunity for leaders to discuss the latest developments in the region, such as the situations with the Middle East Peace Process, Yemen, Libya and Syria.
The summit will start on Sunday 24 February at 17.00 with the official welcome by the Egyptian host and co-chair President Al Sisi. At 17.30 there will be an opening ceremony, followed by a plenary session on ‘Enhancing the Euro-Arab partnership and addressing global challenges together – part 1’. After a family photo at 19.50 there will be a dinner for the heads of delegations.
On Monday 25 February the summit will resume at 10.30 with a restricted working session for the leaders devoted to ‘addressing regional challenges together’. This will be followed by part 2 of the plenary session starting at 12.00. The summit will end with a closing session at 14.20, followed by a press conference.
First EU-LAS summit
The summit in Sharm el-Sheikh will be the first meeting between the European Union and the League of Arab States at the level of heads of state or government. The decision to organise the summit was taken following the informal meeting of EU heads of state or government in Salzburg on 19-20 September 2018. In its conclusions on 18 October 2018, the European Council welcomed the holding of the summit.
The summit will be an opportunity for the leaders to emphasise the need for greater strategic cooperation between the EU and the Arab world, promoting a relationship of the kind that the EU has developed with other regional groupings.
Today the two regions comprise 12% of the world’s population. With the Middle East especially experiencing strong population growth (from 1950-2000 the population already grew from 92 million to 349 million, which is a 3.8 fold increase, or 2.7% per year) the cross-regional opportunities and challenges are likely to increase. The summit should hence be an opportunity to boost cooperation on a number of issues, such as socio-economic development, trade and investment, energy security, climate change and migration.
The two regions are already major trade and investment partners. Collectively the EU is the first trading partner for the LAS. This is also the case for 11 individual members of the LAS. The EU is also the biggest investor in the LAS countries.
For example, 23% of all EU oil imports come from LAS countries. The equivalent number for natural gas is 19%.
The summit will provide an opportunity for leaders to discuss how to further strengthen economic cooperation between the two sides. Leaders are expected to discuss possibilities to develop cooperation in the fields of energy, science, research, (digital) technology, tourism, fisheries and agriculture.
At the summit, leaders will have the opportunity to reconfirm their commitment to multilateralism and to an international system based on international law, as well as to discuss a number of pressing global issues. In particular, leaders are expected to reiterate their strong support for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to global efforts to tackle climate change, notably through the implementation of the Paris Agreement. They are also expected to discuss human rights and the promotion of cultural and religious tolerance.
Migration is a challenge for both the EU and LAS member states. Several LAS member states rank high among countries of origin, transit or departure of migrants and refugees to Europe (approximately 1/3 of total arrivals in Europe 2018 came from LAS countries) and some of them are also hosting large communities of migrants and refugees. Leaders are expected to underline the need to protect and support refugees in accordance with international law and to strengthen the fight against illegal migration and migrants’ smuggling.
Leaders will also discuss concerns related to the fight against terrorism. They are expected to agree on the need to further increase cooperation and coordination aimed at addressing root causes of terrorism, to combat the movement of foreign terrorist fighters and in cutting-off support to terrorist networks.
Recent developments have highlighted the direct impact that open conflicts, protracted and humanitarian crises have on stability and security in both regions. There is an added value of increased EU involvement in stabilising regions. The summit will provide an opportunity for leaders, in a more restricted format, to discuss developments in the region, such as the situations in Syria, Libya and Yemen, as well as the Middle East Peace Process.
The EU and League of Arab States
The League of Arab States is the only pan-Arab grouping gathering all Arab countries. It includes 22 member states from Africa and the Middle East: Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen. Syria’s membership was suspended in 2011, and it is not participating in the summit.
Since the signing of a memorandum of understanding in 2015, the EU and LAS have maintained an advanced relationship, including biennial ministerial meetings and annual meetings between the
EU Political and Security Committee and the LAS Permanent Representatives. The EU and the LAS have also launched in 2015 a strategic dialogue to develop the Euro-Arab operational cooperation on security issues
