Central Americans who have special temporary residency in the United States because their countries were hit by natural disasters will be allowed to remain another 18 months. The Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday announced the extension of Temporary Protected Status for citizens of Honduras, Nicaragua and El Salvador. The additional time affects about 230,000 Salvadorans, 7,800 Hondurans and 4,000 Nicaraguans, the agency said. In Los Angeles, tens of thousands of Central Americans will be affected by the decision, according to immigration rights activist William Torres. “Next to Mexican immigrants, Central Americans are the largest group of immigrants in Los Angeles,” said Torres, an organizer for the March 25 Coalition, the sponsor of Tuesday’s march downtown. “There’s literally hundreds of thousands of Central Americans in Los Angeles, and a large percentage of those have temporary protection status. So this is good news for them.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! El Salvadorans have had special residency since early 2001, when the country was hit by two devastating earthquakes that killed 1,200 people. The temporary status was granted to Nicaraguans and Hondurans after Hurricane Mitch in 1998. El Salvador President Tony Saca pushed for the extension during an Oval Office visit with President George W. Bush in February. Saca said then that more than 2 million Salvadorans live in the United States, the majority of them legal citizens. Temporary Protected Status is granted to people for whom it is temporarily unsafe to return home due to armed conflict, natural disaster or other extraordinary conditions. It doesn’t lead to permanent residency.

A new art installation has been painted on Letterkenny’s Church Lane with a helping hand from the artists behind the iconic ‘Derry Girls’ mural in Derry city.Derry Street Artist Group ‘UV Arts’ and design students from LYIT recently teamed up to create a contemporary stained glass mural for the Cathedral Quarter.The mural, which takes influence from St Eunan’s Cathedral, is located beside the entrance into G&G, Dream Nails and Kay C Designs on the Church Lane and was funded under the Creative Ireland program. Donal O’Doherty of UV Arts was one of the talented creatives who designed the eye-catching Derry Girls mural on the side of Badger’s Bar, featuring the main characters of the hit Channel4 comedy.Letterkenny Cathedral Quarter will launch the art installation – A Stained Glass Mural on Tuesday 5th NovemberSpeaking about his latest project in the Letterkenny Cathedral Quarter, Donal said: “We have developed a unique piece of street art in collaboration with the Letterkenny Cathedral Quarter regeneration team and design students from LYIT.“The initiative links our cultural heritage through a vibrant, modern approach to public arts. Street art is increasing its audience and is an excellent opportunity to engage new audiences and transforms areas.”The mural is a contemporary take of the traditional stained glass panels located in St Eunan’s Cathedral and celebrates the significance and excellent workmanship throughout the Cathedral. Donal added: “The representation of female forms is identified in the floral patterns, links to the scale and shape of the panels is highlighted with the bold use of line creating a dynamic piece that creates a splash of colour on an otherwise indistinguishable wall space. The use of colour and vibrancy will create positive wellbeing and hopefully inspire the local community.”Letterkenny Cathedral Quarter will launch the art installation – A Stained Glass Mural on Tuesday 5th NovemberCrona O ‘Donoghue, lecturer at LYIT Department of Design and Creative is delighted that the students played a pivotal role in the creation of the Mural.She said: “This mural grew out of a first year communication and creative process project centred on the quarter. We were particularly impressed by the committee’s commitment to make some of the projects a reality.“The collaborative approach between UV Arts and three of our BA (Hons) Fashion with Promotion students – Grace Carlin, Laura Cavanagh and Debbie Pearson is a testament to all involved. We are really grateful to Donnan and the team for giving our students this opportunity, Crona added.The artwork will be officially launched at an event in Insomnia Coffee Shop on Tuesday 5th November at 3pm.

INDIANAPOLIS — Late one night at the NFL scouting combine, a cool scene unfolded inside a mostly deserted hotel lounge. There sat 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan along with general manager John Lynch and other staff members.Laughter, banter and stories filled the air. This is the third combine since the 49ers installed their new regime, and even though they’ve won only 10 of 32 games, a harmonious approach remains evident as the 49ers try returning to playoff contention.Shanahan held his press …
“This is of great importance to both the CSIR and KACST and through our strategic partnership will grow an agile, effective and robust technical capability that contributes to the establishment of knowledge economies.” The programme’s main functions will be to perform research and innovate in the electronic defence field, source and supervise postgraduate students and publish progress in international journals, among others. It will also assist in the creation of new knowledge in a field which is under- subscribed in terms of skills in both countries, according to the CSIR. The University of Pretoria (UP) has pledged its full support and indicated its readiness for the programme. “UP’s School of Engineering is rated to be within the top 1% in the world,” said the dean of engineering, built environment and information technology, Roelf Sandenbergh. The university said its vision is to be a research-intensive, internationally renowned department. “The programme will lead to growth of the technological depth and scope in this research field,” executive director for the CSIR’s operating unit for defence, peace, safety and security, Andre Negen, said at the announcement of the programme at the Africa Aerospace and Defence 2012 exhibition in Pretoria. SAinfo reporter The first phase in the establishment of the bi-national research cluster took place in 2011 with the development and initiation of a Master’s programme in radar and electronic defence with the support of the South African Radar Interest Group and in collaboration with the University of Cape Town. 26 September 2012 South Africa’s Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and its Saudi Arabian partner, the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST), have established a new research programme for radar and electronic defence at the University of Pretoria, CSIR announced last week. Called the programme for electronic defence research, it is aimed at building on the two organisations’ bi-national initiative to grow both countries’ engineering research capabilities. It includes the creation of a bi-national research cluster and several human capital development programmes at universities in both countries.
Governor Jagdeep Dhankar on Wednesday sent a letter to the West Bengal Legislative Assembly seeking a clarification on The West Bengal (Prevention of Lynching) Bill, 2019.A communication from the Raj Bhawan said the Governor wanted to know the response of the Assembly Secretary on the contention made by Leader of the Opposition Abdul Mannan and Leader of the Left Front Legislature Party Sujan Chakraborty. Both the leaders who met the Governor on Tuesday said the Bill circulated in the House “was not in consonance with the Bill in respect of which the Governor imparted his recommendation for introduction of the Bill in the Assembly in terms of Article 207.” Both the leaders submitted a “written representation on grave irregularities and legislative improprieties in respect of The West Bengal (Prevention of Lynching) Bill, 2019.”Both the leaders said the Bill placed in the House on August 30 was different than the draft copy of the Bill that was circulated amongst the Members of the Assembly on August 26, 2019, and the one to which the Governor had recommended introduction.“According to them, the reason for this cannot be a printing mistake and this is a serious lapse in as much as the change is in respect to insertion of ‘death sentence’ as the maximum quantum of punishment,” a statement from the Raj Bhawan said. Even during the passage of the Bill on August 30, to which the Left parties and the Congress had issued their support, Mr. Mannan had cited these irregularities which he had brought to the notice of the Governor.
