Five Things Polls Can Tell Us About How Scotland Feels About Independence After The...

Andrew Milligan / PA Archive/PA Images It's been eight months since the UK voted to leave the European Union, despite a majority of voters in Scotland opting to remain. In the days after the vote, one of the big unanswered questions was if the conflicting results between Scots and voters in the rest of the UK would push Scotland towards independence. Since then, Scotland's first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, has said another independence referendum is "highly likely", European politicians are already discussing how to fast-track Scotland's entry to the EU, and the Scottish parliament voted against triggering Article 50 in a symbolic ballot – but how do voters in Scotland feel? Here are five things we can take away from the polling of Scottish voters since the EU referendum on June 23. 1. Despite an initial surge after the vote, Scots don't seem any more keen on becoming independent – yet. What Scotland Thinks / Via whatscotlandthinks.org In the immediate aftermat..

White House Yanked A Job Offer For Its Top Africa Post

Chip Somodevilla / Getty Images In a sign of continued disarray in the White House’s national security team, the Trump administration has rescinded its job offer to the National Security Council’s senior director for Africa, ejecting a highly-regarded retired lieutenant colonel who had been given the job this spring. The decision to dismiss Rudolph Atallah, who served for 20 years in the Air Force, leaves a key position open as questions persist about US policy on major crises facing the continent from instability in Libya to civil war in South Sudan to ongoing counterterrorism operations against al-Shabab in Somalia. “The NSC is considering several candidates for Senior Director for Africa,” a White House official told BuzzFeed News in response to an inquiry about Atallah’s status. Atallah was offered the job in March, BuzzFeed News reported first at the time. A source familiar with the White House decision said he was introduced at a large “all hands” gathering of the NSC in the Eis..

Things Are So Bad In Venezuela That People Are Walking To Brazil For Medicine

The humanitarian crisis in Venezuela, marked by over a year of shortages, is so bad that people are walking over the border into Brazil to get the food and medicines they need. Juan Barreto / AFP / Getty Images A new Human Rights Watch report based on interviews conducted with 60 Venezuelans in February shows how the country's worsening humanitarian crisis has spilled over the Brazilian border. The interviewees said they left Venezuela because they lacked the means to buy food and medicine there, and because of the country's growing crime rate. Venezuelan Geraldine Dhil, 32, walked 125 miles to the Brazilian city of Boa Vista, hoping to find a job there so she can buy medicine for her 13-year-old daughter, who has cancer. Barbara Rosales, 21, was six months pregnant when she went to a Venezuelan hospital in Santa Elena de Uairén. César Muñoz Acebe/HRW The hospital didn't have the medicine needed to treat her complications, so it had Rosales driven over the border..

Venezuelans Are Trying To Crowdfund Money To Leave The Country

Dozens of accounts have been set up in recent months by Venezuelans on the crowdfunding platform Generosity. Thousands of people in Venezuela have taken to the streets in protest as opposition groups stage nationwide demonstrations demanding early elections. The protests are part of a larger movement that has been growing in Venezuela over the past few weeks. Years of rising oil prices, inflation, and political unrest have thrown Venezuela into turmoil. People face a daily struggle to obtain basic items like food and medicine, and these shortages have created a hugely expensive black market in the country. George Castellanos / AFP / Getty Images Things have gotten so bad now that Venezuelans are turning to crowdfunding platforms to raise enough money so they can leave the country. generosity.com Gutierrez told BuzzFeed News she's "always had the dream of traveling overseas for a better capacity of music and arts" but that the worsening situation in Venezuela has held h..
