Six straw polls were held in the Security Council from 21 July to 5 October The selection was much more open than previous selections, with public nominations being sought and candidates participating in televised debates. As a result, the selection is subject to the veto of any of the five permanent members of the Security Council. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon would be completing his second term on 31 Decemberafter which he would step down due to the informal two-term limit.

Under the principle of regional rotation, candidates from Asia were ineligible to succeed Ban. The Eastern European Group was favored in the selection, as it was the only one of the United Nations Regional Groups never to have held the office of Secretary-General. As a result, the selection was the most open selection since Although different regions have held the office, no woman has ever been selected as Secretary-General.

Historically, the process of selecting a Secretary-General has been so secretive that it has been compared to a papal conclave. Straw polls were taken by secret ballot in the Security Council consultation roomand the voting results were not revealed publicly. All reported information came in the form of leaks. There has been criticism of the opacity of the process.

Writing in Singapore's Straits TimesSimon Chesterman has argued that, for an organisation as important as the United Nations, "having its leader chosen by the lowest common denominator of what the P5 finds acceptable is not good enough".

The Security Council and General Assembly took steps to make the selection process more transparent and open in When the Security Council met to conduct its first straw pollit voted in private, as it had done in all selections since The President of the General Assembly was officially informed that a straw poll had been taken, but the results of the poll were not disclosed.

Lykketoft realized that "the outcome of this and future informal straw polls will not be communicated" and complained that it "does not live up to the expectations of the membership and the new standard of openness and transparency". At the time of the final straw poll on 5 Octoberthere were ten candidates for the post. Kristalina Georgieva entered the race on 28 September; although the Prime Minister of Bulgaria nominated Kristalina Georgieva as its new sole candidate for the Secretary-General's position, the decision to withdraw from the race can only be done by the candidates; therefore, Irina Bokova decided to continue in the race, leaving Bulgaria with two candidates.

Support withdrawn [17]. The Security Council held a series of six straw polls in the consultation room. Security Council members were asked to indicate whether they "encouraged", "discouraged" or had "no opinion" regarding the candidates. During the sixth straw poll, the five permanent members voted on red-coloured ballots to reveal whether any of them intended to veto a candidate, while the rotating members voted on white ballots.

The instructional materials include texts that are worthy of students' time and attention and provide many opportunities for rich and rigorous evidence-based discussions and writing about texts to build strong literacy skills. Texts include a balance of genres and are appropriately rigorous and complex for Grade 4 students. Most tasks and questions are grounded in evidence.

Materials address foundational skills to build comprehension and provide questions and tasks that guide students to read with purpose and understanding, making connections between acquisition of foundationalskills and making meaning during reading.

Materials also provide opportunity to increase oral and silent reading fluency across the grade level. The instructional materials support the building of knowledge through repeated practice with appropriate grade-level complex text organized around a topic.

Vocabulary is addressed in each module, though academic vocabulary is not built across multiple texts. Culminating tasks require students to read, discuss, analyze, and write about texts while students participate in a volume of reading to build knowledge. Modules are developed to support and build knowledge, integrating reading, writing, speaking, listening to demonstrate grade-level literacy proficiency at the end of the school year. The Grade 4 instructional materials meet the expectations for text quality and complexity and alignment to the standards.

Overall, appropriately complex grade-level texts are are accompanied by quality tasks aligned to the standards of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language to build foundational skills and strengthen literacy skills. The instructional materials meet expectations for text quality and complexity. Central texts are of publishable quality and address topics of interests to Grade 4 students.

The instructional materials include a mixture of both literary and informational texts. The level of complexity of most texts is appropriate for Grade 4. The instructional materials include a text complexity analysis with rubrics and rationales for their purposes and placement.

Back in June when the UK voted in favor of Brexit, polls showed that British pensioners were three times more likely than younger voters to want to sever ties with the EU. Many young Remain supporters still blame an older generation with secure jobs and pensions for depriving them of the freedom to live and work across Europe. The U. This year, for the first time, Millennials and Baby Boomers enjoyed a relatively equal playing field in terms of electorate size.

However, inonly 46 percent of eligible Millennials turned out to vote compared to 69 percent of Baby Boomers. Even though turnout rates this year are still unclear, a lack of enthusiasm among younger voters may have cost Clinton the presidency. Exit polls reveal that the majority of young people that did go out and vote were behind Clinton with 55 and 50 percent of and year-olds voting for her respectively.

Young people disheartened today will just have to suck it up and drastically improve their turnout in four years. I am a Statista data journalist, covering technological, societal and media topics through visual representation.

In comparison with general FISH for preparing probes in terms of time and cost, synthesized oligonucleotide oligo hereafter probes for FISH have many advantages such as ease of design, synthesis, and labeling.

Low cost and high sensitivity and resolution of oligo probes greatly simplify the FISH procedure as a simple, fast, and efficient method of chromosome identification. The oligo probes contained more nucleotides or more repeat units that produced stronger signals for more efficient chromosome painting.

Nicholson would succeed Army Gen. John Campbell, who is expected to retire. Officials from the Senate Armed Services Committee said they've been planning the hearing for several weeks, in part because of the importance of the post and its oversight of the now year-old conflict in Afghanistan.

Nicholson said he has seen significant progress in recent years, as U. But he also warned that despite the advances of Afghan troops, "in some areas they still have years to go. Those comments provided fodder for committee members — both Republican and Democrat — to criticize White House plans to draw down American forces in Afghanistan by the end of the year.

Currently about 9, service members are stationed there, a larger presence than President Obama had promised four years ago. But last fall, in response to concerns about Taliban advances and instability in the country, Obama announced plans to keep a U. Senators blasted that plan as dangerous and shortsighted, and peppered Nicholson with questions about the wisdom of a too-small fighting force. John McCain, R-Ariz. That will allow American forces to perform the vital tasks of eliminating terrorist threats and building the capacity and capability of Afghan military.

Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, asked whether Defense Department officials should consider a permanent deployment force in Afghanistan, similar to the military presence in South Korea. Kelly Ayotte, R-N. For his part, Nicholson dodged specifics, saying he needs at least three months in the new role to properly evaluate the mission needs and risks for U. He offered support for the administration's general strategy in the region but pledged to offer honest assessments on levels needed for troops and equipment.

He said a hypothetical plan to drop force levels to fewer than 1, troops by January is too dangerous, but deferred on plans for 5, troops in country at that time. Nicholson also acknowledged that those troop level decisions will require military planning in late spring, to prepare commanders for operational changes.
