Tornado Swarm Deals Death,

but Also Miracles

 

April 18, 2011

The New York Times

By KIM SEVERSON

 

ASKEWVILLE, N.C. —

For all [ malgré / en dépit de ] the deaths

and broken bones and flattened houses,

there were still some miracles packed into the 10 minutes it took

for the last of a great roar of tornadoes

to chew through this rural corner of the state.

There was Glen White, 24, who found the strength to push up

a wall that had fallen on five residents of a group home.

There was the married couple who were thrown into their backyard

as the storm exploded their home.

They landed close enough, battered and bruised, to hold hands.

And there was Molly, a graying donkey

who for years has starred in the town Christmas pageant.

People say they saw her lifted into the funnel cloud

when the storm hit Saturday night.

They thought she was a goner.

Unemployed claimants

to face loss of benefits

for refusing work

[ for > valeur explicative / cause ]

 

Severe welfare shakeup will introduce claimant contract

with up to three years' benefits penalty for refusing a job

 

The Guardian

Thursday 11 November 2010

Patrick Wintour in Seoul

and Randeep Ramesh

 

A tougher-than-expected squeeze on the unemployed

is to be announced today as the jobless face the threat

of losing all benefits for as long as three years

if they refuse community work or the offer of a job,

or fail to apply for a job if advised to do so.

In the most severe welfare sanctions

ever imposed by a British government,

unemployed people will lose benefits for three months

if they fail to take up one of the options for the first time,

six months if they refuse an offer twice,

and three years if they refuse an offer three times.

Downing Street sources said the new "claimant contract"

will come into force as soon as legislation is passed,

and may not wait for the introduction

of a streamlined universal credit system in 2013-14.

Where Hurricane Sandy Still Hurts

 

November 8, 2012

The New York Times

 

For all the efforts of federal,

state and local officials to help people

after Hurricane Sandy,

[ malgré / en dépit de ]

unacceptable pockets of suffering remain.

Ten days after the hurricane struck,

thousands of people in New York City’s public housing

are still without heat, water, electricity or food.

Many people needed assistance after the storm,

but the most vulnerable of the city’s inhabitants

seem to be among the last in line to get it.
