#AceBreakingNews report …., [Nov 6, 2022 at 10:10] The show of force” followed intelligence reports alleging that Tehran was planning to attack Saudi Arabia, the paper says

RT World News https://ift.tt/6wQB9Dz

The US has sent Persian Gulf-based warplanes in the direction of Iran, in response to intelligence reports alleging that Tehran was planning an attack on Saudi Arabia, the Washington Post has reported.

Last Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Riyadh had told Washington that Iranian missile and drone strikes on targets within the Saudi territory were “imminent.”After getting this information, the US scrambled its jets in the region and sent them towards Iranian airspace “as an armed show of force,” WaPo reported.

The move by Washington, which hadn’t been reported earlier, was “the latest illustration of the strength and importance of a partnership” the Biden administration has with Saudi Arabia, the paper added.The Iranian foreign ministry has rejected the claims that it’s planning to attack Saudi Arabia as “baseless accusations,” devised “to create a negative atmosphere against Iran and destroy the current positive trends with the countries of the region.”Read moreIranian

The move was made despite the US urging the Saudis to do the opposite, having argued that lower oil prices would hurt Russia and make it harder for Moscow to finance its military operation in Ukraine.According to NBC, the White House has been discussing rolling back its military aid to the Saudis and excluding them from military drills and conferences in the region as punishment for Riyadh’s defiance.

FEATURED AUSTRALIA FAIR WORK COMMISSION REPORT: Aged care work GET 15% PAY RISE – Unions WANTED 25%

#AceNewsDesk – Aged care workers will get a pay rise of at least 15 per cent, after Australia’s industrial umpire handed down an “interim” decision in a highly anticipated and long-awaited wage case.

Unions had wanted a 25 per cent pay boost and a wages increase was a key recommendation of a 2021 Royal Commission, which exposed major problems in the sector, including overwork, neglect and abuse.

In a lengthy decision published late on Friday, the Fair Work Commission (FWC) said an interim increase of 15 per cent was “plainly justified”, with the decision establishing the “existing minimum rates do not properly compensate employees for the value” of their hard work.

“We accept the expert evidence that, as a general proposition, work in feminised industries — including care work — has been historically undervalued and that the reason for that undervaluation is likely to be gender-based,” the FWC said in its ruling.

“We also recognise that there is ample evidence that the needs of those being cared for in their homes have significantly increased in terms of clinical complexity, frailty and cognitive and mental health.”

Further pay rises could be possible

The timing of the pay rise — and whether it should be gradually introduced — will start being discussed later this month and the commission has left open the possibility of further pay increases.

“We wish to make it clear that this does not conclude our consideration of the unions’ claim for a 25-per-cent increase for other employees, namely administrative and support aged care employees,” the FWC added.

“Nor are we suggesting that the 15-per-cent interim increase necessarily exhausts the extent of the increase justified by work value reasons in respect of direct care workers.”

It will take submissions from employers and the federal government, before handing down stages 2 and 3 of its decision.

It argued that it needed to act in stages to avoid “unduly delaying any increase to minimum wages” and to ensure it can “more quickly consider how to phase-in any initial minimum wage adjustments”.

Labor has long said that low pay has contributed to people leaving the sector.

“We need to bring workers back to the aged care sector and fill the staff shortages,” Aged Care Minister Anika Wells said.

“Increasing wages in aged care is essential to ensuring that men and women are paid equally,” she added.

The government had promised to fund a pay increase and argued publicly in favour of it, but had not put a figure on how much salaries should rise.

“Aged care work is hard work — but it’s undervalued work,” said Workplace Relations Minister Tony Burke.

“This result is the first step in changing that.

“We fought for this pay rise because our government is committed to getting wages moving again, particularly in low-paid female-dominated industries like this one.”

Union warns pay rise will not end ‘aged care crisis’

Unions have described Friday’s decision as a “down-payment” and believe broader pay increases are needed to fix problems in the sector.

They argue that aged care has suffered from government neglect over a long period, leading to shortages of trained staff, which has exacerbated the challenge of caring for Australia’s ageing population and contributed to well-documented problems.

“This is a reasonable start but we need the commission to go further and permanently end the poverty wage settings that dominate aged care,” Health Service Union national president Gerard Hayes said.

“Nobody should be mistaken. This will not fix the crisis. We still have massive unfinished business in aged care.

“For the last decade, this industry has relied on the goodwill of an exploited, casualised workforce. Today represents progress, but the legal, political and industrial fight continues”.Carolyn Smith from the United Workers Union says it is a “bitter pill” for those who miss out. (Supplied: United Workers Union)none

United Workers Union aged care director Carolyn Smith said aged care workers would be “gutted” that there is yet to be a final outcome for other aged care support workers.

“Anyone with knowledge of aged care knows lifestyle, laundry and catering are essential to delivering the quality care residents need,” Ms Smith said.

“It is a bitter pill for these workers that decisions on their pay rises have been put off for further consideration.

“During the two years the case has been on foot, these workers at the heart of the case have been working their guts out, keeping aged care running during a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic.”

Aged Care is one of the fastest-growing spending areas for the federal government.

Last month’s budget forecasts the cost of aged care to increase by more than 6 per cent per year over the next decade.

The “miraculous” rescue comes with South Korea still in mourning over a deadly crush

The men, aged 62 and 56, are believed to have kept warm by lighting a fire and building a tent out of plastic.

It comes during a period of national mourning for South Korea, after more than 150 people were killed in a crush in the capital Seoul last week.

The two miners were stranded nearly 200 metres (650 feet) underground after part of the zinc mine they were working in collapsed on 26 October in Bonghwa, in the east of the country. 

They were finally rescued on the night of 4 November – more than nine days after their ordeal began. Both were able to walk out of the mine and were taken to a local hospital. Their doctor said they should make a full recovery.

President Yoon Suk-yeol called their rescue “truly miraculous”.

“Thank you and thank you again for coming back safely from the crossroads of life and death,” he wrote on Facebook.

Authorities said the miners survived by drinking water that fell from the ceiling and using instant coffee mix powder as a meal. 

The rescue operation began on Thursday when emergency workers drilled a hole and inserted a small camera in an effort to locate the miners, according to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency. 

The were eventually discovered sitting shoulder to shoulder to keep warm, in a spacious chamber where several mine shafts meet.

The niece of one of the survivors described how her uncle didn’t recognise her when he came out, because he was wearing an eye-mask after nearly ten days in the dark…………..She described his rescue as “surreal”, according to AFP news agency.

Hundreds of animals have died in Kenyan wildlife reserves in East Africa’s worst drought in decades, according to a report.

The Kenya Wildlife Service counted the deaths of 205 elephants, 512 wildebeests, 381 common zebras, 51 buffaloes, 49 endangered Grevy’s zebras and 12 giraffes within the past nine months.

It comes after four consecutive seasons of drought in parts of Kenya over the past two years have taken a drastic toll on people, animals, and livestock.

Some of Kenya‘s most popular tourist destinations – including the Amboseli, Tsavo and Laikipia-Samburu reserves – have suffered most, the report states.

The authors have called for an emergency aerial census of the wildlife in Amboseli in order to determine the scope of impact that the drought has had on animals living there.

Other experts are suggesting the urgent delivery of water and salt licks in the worst-affected regions.

Elephants for example can consume up to 240 litres (63.4 gallons) of water a day, according to Jim Justus Nyamu, executive director of the Elephant Neighbours Centre.

For Grevy’s zebras, specialists advise increasing provisions of hay.
