 Education - High quality support can drive up pupils abilities
The Irish News, May 26, 2016 Thursday

 Fifty years ago, the Coleman Report, regarded as the most important educational study of the twentieth century found that the most powerful predictor of academic achievement is the socio-economic status of a child's family, and the second is the socio-economic status of their classmates. In other words, being born poor imposes a disadvantage; but attending a school with large numbers of low income classmates presents a second challenge.

 Judges make conflicting rulings on PDP crisis
News Chronicle (Nigeria), May 25, 2016 Wednesday

 The crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party became more complicated on Tuesday as two Federal High Courts in Lagos and Port Harcourt issued two separate orders, which had left the party without a recognisable leadership. In Port Harcourt, where the PDP National Convention was held on Saturday, a Federal High Court affirmed the resolution of the convention which sacked the former acting National Chairman of the party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, and other members of the National Working Committee of the party. The sack of Sherrif at the convention was followed by the appointment of a caretaker committee, headed by a former Governor of Kaduna State, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, which is to lead the party for 90 days. In Lagos, however, another Federal High Court nullified the constitution of the Makarfi-led caretaker committee, asking the police to enforce the order if the members of the panel attempt to parade themselves as officers of the former ruling party.

This Day (Lagos), May 25, 2016

 The leadership crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) got messier yesterday when two Federal High Courts in Lagos and Port Harcourt, respectively gave conflicting orders sacking and according recognition to the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee appointed by the 2016 national convention of the party last Saturday in Port Harcourt. In a verdict issued by Justice A.M. Liman, the Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to recognise the Makarfi-led committee of the PDP and granted leave to the party to issue as "concurrent" the originating summons and other processes in the suit for service on the defendants/respondents outside the jurisdiction of the court in Abuja. The court also restrained Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, Professor Adewole Oladipo and other sacked members of the National Working Committee (NWC) and National Executive Committee (NEC) from parading themselves as officials of the PDP.
 PDP slips into further crisis
National Mirror, May 25, 2016 Wednesday

 Lagos, May 25 -- The crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is far from over as two separate courts in Lagos and Port Harcourt, yesterday, gave conflicting judgment on the outcome of last Saturday's National Convention of the party. In Lagos, Justice Ibrahim Buba of a Federal High Court nullified the Ahmed Markafi-led Caretaker Committee consti1tuted by the Port Harcourt convention to take over the affairs of the party from acting National Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff. In Rivers State, another Federal High Court in Port Harcourt directed the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to recognise the caretaker committee. Justice Buba in his ruling directed the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Solomon Arase, to enforce his order and also arrest whoever parades himself as member of the caretaker committee of the party. The suit, which was filed by Sheriff as acting national chairman, Adewale Oladipo, as national secretary and national auditor, Fatai Adeyanju, asked the court to stop the national convention, pending the determination of the substantive suit. The respondents in the suit are PDP and INEC. Justice Buba had earlier granted an order of interlocutory injunction, restraining the party and INEC from conducting any election into the offices of the National Chairman, National Secretary and National Auditor occupied by the 1st, 2nd and 3rd plaintiffs respectively, pending the hearing and determination of the substantive suit.

 FG Loses 775.2 Million Dollars On Oil, Gas Cargoes Discharged in Undesignated Terminals
Vanguard (Lagos), May 24, 2016

 The Federal Government is losing a huge sum of 775.2 million dollars (N152.7 billion) annually on oil and gas cargoes discharged at undesignated terminals. A maritime expert, Mr Emma Ugoji, made the disclosure in a statement made available to newsmen on Tuesday in Lagos. Statistics released by the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) showed that Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), Refined Petroleum; and Crude oil handled in Nigerian ports in 2015 totaled 160.5 million tonnes. According to Ugoji, 4.83 dollars is being lost per tonne on oil and gas cargoes discharged at undesignated terminals. He said that in a duly-designated terminal for handling oil and gas cargoes such as Intels Terminal at Onne, 5.83 dollars is currently being paid per tonne as against one dollar in other undesignated terminals. "Maritime experts hold the opinion that all that the Federal Government needed to do over the years to sustain collectable revenue inflow from transportation, berthing and cargo discharge of vessels was to enforce the policies that have been in existence for many years. "This would boost economic activities in the sector as well as ensure that regulatory agencies enforced rules and regulations without compromise.

  Washington: United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission has issued the following document: 1 Qualitative Assessment for Crediting Portable Equipment in Risk- Informed Decision Making Developed by the NEI FLEX in Risk Informed Decision Making (FRIDM) Task Force 1. PURPOSE The purpose of this guidance document is to establish the considerations that should be assessed when evaluating the qualitative risk and safety benefit of the use of portable equipment associated with various mitigating strategies in Risk Informed Decision Making (RIDM). These mitigating strategies are flexible plant responses which utilize portable equipment to restore or maintain various safety functions during beyond design basis conditions and the loss of permanently installed plant equipment. Examples of these strategies include ones implemented for compliance of NRC Order EA-12-049 (FLEX Strategies) and with 10CFR50.54(hh)(2) (B.5.b Strategies). The licensee should determine that the use of a qualitative risk assessment is acceptable for the specific RIDM process being evaluated (e.g. Shutdown Risk Assessment, Online Risk Management, Significance Determination Process (SDP), and Notice of Enforcement Discretion (NOED)). It is not the intent of this guidance to provide decision making criteria for any specific risk informed application or when specific approaches are appropriate to use. These determinations would be on a case-by-case basis and would need to evaluate existing industry and regulatory guidance or
