    ROME jordan 11 retro gym red mens , Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- The number of migrant arrivals in Italy has dropped precipitously since the beginning of July, but opinions of officials and experts were split over whether the drop-off is temporary or part of a long-term trend.


    The numbers tell a stunning tale. Over the first 10 days of August, for example, 1,572 migrants landed on Italy's shores -- most of them from Libya -- a dramatic 76-percent drop compared to the 6,554 in the same period a year ago.


    In July jordan 11 gym red chicago mens , 11,459 arrived, a little less than half the 23,552 migrants who came to Italy in July 2016.


    Italian Interior Minister Marco Minniti said the drop off is part of a trend as Italy and -- to a lesser extent -- other European Union states, invested cash and manpower in Libya to help stabilize the country that had fallen into chaos since 2011. The money was used to stabilize the country's economy and institutions and, most importantly jordan 11 gym red mens 2017 , to beef up the country's coastguard.


    Minniti told Italian journalists,"The idea of reinforcing the Libyan coast guard seemed like a fantasy, but it is already paying dividends."


    The Interior Ministry said that during the first weekend in August, Libyan ships rescued 1,180 migrants, compared to just 130 by all non-Libyan vessels.


    The move comes after the efforts to better patrol the waters between Turkey and Greece -- which until last year had been the most used entry path into the European Union for migrants -- produced similar results.


    In recent weeks retail jordan 11 gym red mens , Italian government officials have said there is no reason the number of arrivals will not continue to drop if efforts in Libya and other ports of departure for the migrants continue.


    Minniti said that after the August summer break, he plans to lobby the rest of the European Union to funnel more resources into the initiatives like the one that Italy started to reinforce the Libyan coast guard.


    But others aren't so sure the plan will have the intended effect."If you close one door, it doesn't take long for someone looking to get in to find another one," Maurizio Ambrosini, a sociologist and commentator on migrant issues in the school of political science at the University of Milan, told Xinhua.


    "It's too early to call this a trend. After all jordan 11 gym red size 13 , who is to say that the migrants who were stopped won't end up arriving in Spain or elsewhere?" Other commentators echoed that view in the local press.


    Ambrosini said that as long as life in the African and Middle Eastern countries providing the bulk of the migrants remains so difficult, there will be those willing to take risks to seek a better life.


    "As long as there is war and extreme poverty, there will be people who will want to become migrants," the professor said, "In that context, enforcement efforts can only have a limited success."

    LOS ANGELES, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)'s Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston remained closed on Monday to all but mission-critical staff, due to heavy rainfall caused by Hurricane Harvey, according to the space agency.


    But the Mission Control continued operations, the agency added.


    "While the vast majority of our workforce is safe, many have experienced severe flood damage jordan 11 gym red mens , are without power and may need other assistance," JSC Director Ellen Ochoa, a former astronaut, said in a post on Monday.


    The JSC in Houston has been closed to all non-critical staff from Sunday and will remain closed on Tuesday. The JSC Emergency Management said: "Center Closure Includes all Sites."


    However, the Mission Control Center is "operational and fully capable of supporting the International Space Station (ISS) from Houston," according to NASA.


    "Oh boy - looks like a ton of rain is about to unload. Here's a prayer for family , friends & everyone in #HurricaneHarvey's path--stay safe," astronaut Jack Fischer, who is currently in the ISS, posted photos of the storm when he orbited over hurricane Harvey.


    Later, the ISS account shared pictures Fischer photographed from the station's six-sided observation dome.


    "Wish I was up there and not down here," said JSC Director Ochoa who retweeted the images.


    Tropical Storm Harvey is still causing catastrophic flooding in the Houston area cheap air jordan 11 gym red , as NASA satellites saw the storm's center moving back into the Gulf of Mexico.


    The National Weather Service extended the flash flood warning that includes the JSC area on Monday night.


    The NASA facility covers 1,700 acres southeast of Houston. The center typically bustles with thousands of scientists, engineers, other staff and contractors, including flight controllers for the ISS.


    Category 4 Hurricane Harvey made a landfall last Friday night in the coastal area of Texas. It later downgraded to a tropical storm. Torrential rain has been pouring down in the coastal area as well as Greater Houston, resulting in heavy flooding.


    At least nine people have died statewide as a result of the storm air jordan 11 retro gym red , as floodwaters continue to turn streets into waterways and gush into buildings Monday, reports said.
