High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said on Wednesday. Pillay, opening an emergency debate at the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva, also condemned the indiscriminate firing of rockets and mortars by Palestinian militants into Israel."

Today I have to have a colposcopy, and biopsy done to find out if I show any signs of cervical cancer, because I had an abnormal pap smear result. So make sure to get your pap smear ladies, because they provide crucial information about women's health. Wish me luck.

Take heart, America. Yours isn't the only country to lose jobs to developing nations

"Australia, Canada and Israel, among others, have dropped off the list of best places for information-technology and business-processing services, according to a report that research firm Gartner released Monday.

As more developing countries have created workforces that can handle those tasks at lower cost, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore and Spain are also no longer on Gartner's list of the 30 best countries for outsourcing, which considers both costs and skill sets.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Colombia, Peru and Mauritius have all joined the list for the first time, while Panama, Sri Lanka and Turkey reappeared after an absence during previous years. Those nations join South American countries, such as Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Colombia, as well as the Asian powerhouses of China and India.

"Citywide behavioral bans prohibit sleeping in public, begging in public, loitering, sitting or lying down in public spaces, food sharing, and sleeping in vehicles, among other behaviors.

“Many cities have chosen to criminally punish people living on the street for doing what any human being must do to survive,” the report states.

Initially, these bans sought to eradicate homelessness by addressing some of the underlying causes of poverty.  However, the NLCHP report cites shortcomings in providing alternatives to the banned behaviors, rendering the criminalization laws ineffective.  Additionally, these bans do not only affect the populations in specific areas of the cities; instead, they prohibit banned behaviors in entire communities city-wide, limiting the options for people trying to survive on the street."

Criminalization of homelessness on the rise in U.S. cities

The criminalization of homelessness has been on the rise since early 2009 in a number of cities across the country.

MH17: Ukraine claims 'compelling evidence' of Russian involvement - live updates

"Kiev says it has proof that missile launchers with Russian crews crossed into Ukraine as fears mount that rebels are destroying evidence and removing bodies from the crash site."

"Russia made a blistering attack on Washington today after President Obama said that a missile fired from territory controlled by Moscow-backed rebels shot down MH17.

Russian deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov said the United States sought to blame separatists and Russia without waiting for the results of an investigation.

"The statements of representatives of the US administration are evidence of a deep political aberration of Washington's perception of what is going on in Ukraine," he said.

Not directly related to the plane being shot down, but Russia's foreign ministry said today that Moscow would deny entry to several American citizens in retaliation for the most recent US sanctions over the crisis in Ukraine."

"Retaliatory measures definitely will be taken," a spokesman said.

The day's developments so far:

• Malaysia Airlines MH17, carrying 295 people, crashed in east Ukraine near the village of Grabovo. Debris and bodies are scattered across several miles, and there are no presumed survivors.

• Separatist rebels and locals have begun tentative recovery efforts, bringing fire engines to put out blazes. Locals say the plane exploded in mid-air.

• Ukraine has traded accusations with rebels of shooting down the plane, with President Petro Poroshenko saying he believed a "terrorist act" was responsible, and an adviser to the interior minister saying a Russian-built weapon shot down the aircraft. Both Kiev and a separatist leader denied any involvement.

• US and Russian presidents Obama and Putin spoke by phone, and the US has said it will work to determine what caused the crash and whether any Americans were on board. A spokesman for the Kremlin said the notion of any Russian hand was "stupidity".

• Delta, British Airways, Air France, Lufthansa, Aeroflot and other airlines said they would avoid Ukrainian air space.

• Ukraine accused Russia of downing one of its fighter jets inside Ukrainian territory earlier on Thursday.

A report summarizing the day's events so far has been filed by Shaun Walker in Kiev, Harriet Salem in Grabovo, Tania Branigan in Beijing, Alec Luhn in Moscow, and can be read in full here.

A US team will go to Ukraine "to determine what happened", vice-president Joe Biden has said.

Ukraine's state security chief has accused two Russian military intelligence officers of being involved in the MH17 crash, Reuters reports, citing "intercepted phone conversations" between the officers.
