They call this camp in Calais on France's north coast "The Jungle."

Only a few weeks ago, it housed about 3-thousand people, but French authorities say the population has now doubled, as more migrants come in and fewer are able to move on across the channel to the United Kingdom.

As winter approaches, inhabitants of the makeshift camp say the falling temperatures are making life harder.

So is the language barrier that divides migrants from different countries, according to 27-year-old Muhamad, from Sudan.


"And life sometimes - nationalities fighting, Sudan against Afghanistan are fighting, all kind of sometimes little things, because I don't understand what you are saying and he doesn't understand what you are saying,"

French authorities say Pas-de-Calais was receiving more asylum requests than any other French department - 2,100 since the start of the year.

That's up from 900 last year and 300 the year before.

The influx of migrants has prompted some Calais residents to try to leave, according to this man who works at a furniture removal company.


"I know people who want to move away but their problem is that they can't sell their homes. There are migrants so people don't dare buy."

Britain's interior ministry declined to comment on the growing number of migrants and those who fled war and poverty in Africa and the Middle East now sit in limbo in France.

Safety Disposal Of Old Freezer

A Refrigerator (often called a "fridge" in short) is a cooling appliance comprising a thermally insulated compartment and a heat pump--chemical or mechanical means--to transfer heat from it to the external environment, cooling the contents to a temperature below ambient. Refrigerators are extensively used to store foods which spoil from bacterial growth if not refrigerated. A device described as a "refrigerator" maintains a temperature a few degrees above the freezing point of water; a similar device which maintains a temperature below the freezing point of water is called a "freezer." The refrigerator is a relatively modern invention among kitchen appliances.

There has been a change in the law as to how you can dispose of your Fridge/Freezer. All ozone-depleting substances (ODS), including CFC's, must be removed from refrigeration equipment before it is scrapped or recycled. This includes the ODS in the cooling system of your appliance and the insulating foam inside the walls and door. In short Fridges contain hazardous gas, and therefore need special disposal.

Fridge Freezer Disposal: The Law

Disposing of a fridge freezer can seem confusing and more trouble than it once was. The reason is that the disposal of fridge freezers is now tightly regulated because of the fact that some components of fridges can be extremely harmful to the environment. Since January 2002, all ozone-depleting substances (ODS) must be removed from a fridge before it can be recycled or thrown away. Anyone found not disposing of a fridge freezer properly and this includes fly tipping is eligible for prosecution and a fine of up to

500 days out, Rio risks Olympics cost surge as building lags | Reuters

By Stephen Eisenhammer


RIO DE JANEIRO With less than 500 days until Rio de Janeiro hosts the Olympic Games, construction of several venues has not started and some major contracts have not even been tendered, setting the stage for a last-minute rush that will likely drive up costs.

It may seem like a familiar script for major sporting events. As the start date nears, the headlines invariably focus on delays and the scramble to get ready on time, and yet the games end up going ahead without major hitches.

Rio 2016 may, though, end up being one of global sport's closest calls yet, resulting in a race against time that would inevitably inflate the c
