|SYDNEY Authentic Marc-Andre Fleury Jersey , Oct. 3 (Xinhua) -- Australian police said on Saturday that the shooting of a civilian police employee by a 15-year-old gunman near a Sydney police station was linked to terrorism.
"We believe his actions were politically motivated and therefore linked to terrorism," New South Wales police commissioner Andrew Scipione told reporters.
He said the teenager was born in Iran and had Iraqi-Kurdish background.
The police worker was shot at close range on Friday afternoon in the street outside Parramatta's police station in western Sydney.
The gunman was shot dead in an exchange of fire with police.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- A new study finds that the United States made little progress from 2000 to 2010 in reducing relative disparities between people of color and whites in exposure to harmful air pollution emitted by cars, trucks and other combustion sources.
The study builds on the work led by University of Washington (UW) researchers in both 2000 and 2010, identifying that disparities in exposure to outdoor concentrations of a transportation-related pollutant Authentic James Neal Jersey , namely nitrogen dioxide (NO2), were larger by race and ethnicity than by income, age or education.
The relative inequality persisted across the decade.
For the study, published in the recent issue of Environmental Health Perspectives, the researchers developed a first-of-its-kind model that combines satellite and regulatory measurements with land use data to predict pollution at a neighborhood level throughout the United States.
Measured in parts per billion (ppb) Marc-Andre Fleury Jersey , estimated average annual NO2 exposure decreased from 17.6 to 10.7 ppb for nonwhite populations, and from 12.6 to 7.8 ppb for white populations.
Yet people of color were, on average, consistently exposed to more air pollution than their white non-Hispanic counterparts during the decade. Considering relative differences, nonwhites experienced 40 percent higher exposures than whites in 2000; in 2010 James Neal Jersey , that gap shrunk slightly, to 37 percent. Furthermore, in 2000, concentrations of NO2 in neighborhoods with the highest proportion of nonwhite residents were 2.5 times higher than in neighborhoods with the lowest proportion of nonwhite residents. In 2010, that value increased slightly Customized Vegas Golden Knights Jersey , to 2.7 times higher.
The study concludes that if people of color had breathed the lower NO2 levels experienced by whites in 2010, it would have prevented an estimated 5,000 premature deaths from heart disease among the nonwhite group.
On the whole, the researchers noted, policies to reduce NO2 air pollution are working across the United States. But the finding that exposure differences are larger by race and ethnicity than by income Adidas Golden Knights Jersey , age or education was equally true in 2010 as in 2000.
"Everyone benefited from clean air regulations and less pollution; that's the good news," lead author and UW civil and environmental engineering doctoral student Lara Clark, was quoted as saying in a news release from UW. "But the fact that there is a pervasive gap in exposure to NO2 by race - and that the relative gap was more or less preserved over a decade - is the bad news."
NO2, which has been linked to asthma symptoms, increased susceptibility to respiratory problems and heart disease Alex Tuch Golden Knights Jersey , comes from sources such as vehicle exhaust, power plants and off-road equipment and is one of six important "criteria air pollutants" monitored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
WELLINGTON, March 26 (Xinhua) -- Opposition to the New Zealand government's trade policies mounted Thursday as critics claimed new international agreements were undermining the country's democracy and sovereignty.
The focus was thrown on to two completed agreements -- the free trade agreement (FTA) with the Republic of Korea and a World Trade Organization-brokered Government Procurement Agreement -- as well as the ongoing secret negotiations of the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership.
On Monday Trade Minister Tim Groser signed the FTA in Seoul to criticism that its investor-state dispute provisions would allow big corporations to sue the government over laws and regulations that affected their profits.
Parliament's Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Select Committee announced Thursday it was inviting submissions of the agreement before it was discussed by lawmakers.
However, trade unions blasted the committee after it refused to hear submissions on the Government Procurement Agreement Nate Schmidt Golden Knights Jersey , which they argue will enable big foreign corporations to lock smaller local businesses out of government contracts.
""This sets a terrible precedent for future international agreements, which increasingly impede our sovereignty and our ability to improve social and economic conditions for working people,"" Council of Trade Unions secretary Sam Huggard said in a statement.
""MOCKERY OF DEMOCRACY""
New Zealand's treaty approval process was so bad that public did not even have the opportunity to comment on an agreement after its signing.
""The process is a mockery of democracy in any case, because it leaves virtually all the power to sign with Cabinet -- only changes in legislation go to Parliament for approval, and for this one Jonathan Marchessault Golden Knights Jersey , none is needed. Lack of public submissions makes it even worse,"" he said.
""If the CTU had been able to make a submission we would have highlighted the fact that it prevents preference being given to local suppliers for economic development purposes.""
The agreement also tied the hands of local and central government agencies in using purchasing to raise health and safety, employment and pay conditions, and stopped ethical purchasing.
Also Thursday, Wikileaks posted documents that appeared to show the government had caved in to the United States demands for investor-state dispute settlement provisions in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) tal.
