LAMPEDUSA Cheap Air Max 90 Shoes , Italy, Feb. 27 (Xinhua) -- The economy of the small island between the Sicily and the North African coast is buckling beneath the weight of what locals say is an image problem tied to the rising tide of economic and political refugees landing on its shores.

For generations, Lampedusa's economy was based on fishing. That industry started suffering in the 1980s, after new competition came as a result of Spain's accession to the European Union and the EU's economies became more integrated. After that, tourism became the big earner, with visitors from Italy and across Europe attracted to the island's remote location and pristine beaches.

Now, the local population of 5 Cheap Air Max Shoes ,800 says a refugee problem that started with a trickle 20 years ago has grown to the point that it is starting to keep visitors away.

"Most people ever hears about when it comes to Lampedusa is the migrants," Damiano Sferlazzo, Lampedusa's vice mayor, said in an interview. "We are happy to be in a position to help these refugees, but I want to say the impact they have on day-to-day life in Lampedusa is relatively small."

The refugees, who are housed in a special center just outside the island's only town, tell harrowing stories about long Cheap Nike Air Max Thea , expensive, and treacherous journeys to arrive in Lampedusa.

"It took many months to make it here, and parts of the trip were very, very frightening," 16-year-old Ahmed Ali told Xinhua, adding that his journey to Lampedusa from his native Somalia included stops in Kenya, Uganda Cheap Nike Air Max 95 , South Sudan, Sudan, and Libya.

Once on the island, they are processed and then sent on to Sicily or points further afield for data assimilation and to determine the validity of asylum requests. Most end up settling in northern Europe, where there are more economic opportunities and where populations of migrants with similar backgrounds are already based.

More and more of the refugees die en route. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees says that until the last two years the percentage of refugees who die making the crossing has risen from around 2 percent to around 5 percent of a much larger group.

While they wait to be processed on Lampedusa, they are allowed to leave the refugee center and make the short walk into town, where they mix with local residents split between those eager to help and a sometimes hostile group who would rather the refugees land elsewhere.

"The island is evenly split when it comes to how they see the refugees Cheap Nike Air Max 90 ," 53-year-old Melo Gatani, who operates a small bed-and-breakfast on the island. "The way I look at it is that this is a small island, and island residents have a tradition of helping out people in need."

The system for processing the migrants is efficient and low key. Migrants arrive in port, then they are loaded onto buses and taken to the refugee center where they are fed, given provisions, and receive medical care if needed. Local leaders say they want the tourists to keep coming.

"There's an economic stress for us, and it's true we need more help from Europe Cheap Nike Air Max ," Sferlazzo said. "But we are still able to balance our two roles, to help those who need it and to be a good vacation spot for tourists who come. One role doesn't impact the other."

Even if you don’t open a newspaper, turn on a television Cheap Air Max 95 , log on to a computer or pull out a smartphone, you can get news—from wearable technology.

As wearables gain traction, news purveyors are eyeing these devices for their potential to deliver headlines and more to people who want to stay up to date.

Some news apps already have the capacity to deliver news notifications, or full articles, to smartwatches or eyewear such as Google Glass.

“We are going full speed on smartwatches,” said Gilles Raymond, the San Francisco-based chief executive of News Republic Cheap Air Max 90 , a mobile app that delivers news to mobile devices from hundreds of outlets.

Raymond told AFP he expects people will find it useful to get not only headlines but full articles on a smartwatch as the wearable trend revs up.

“When the iPhone came out, people were saying that not one would read news on a phone. Now nobody is saying that,” said Raymond.

“People will read articles on a watch. They may not read 300 articles, but people adapt quickly to technology.”

Raymond founded News Republic in France and has expanded to other European markets as well as North America and China, aggregating news from hundreds of outlets, including AFP, Al-Jazeera Cheap Air Max , Reuters and The Associated Press.

Roman Karachinsky, CEO of the news aggregation app News360, also sees a future for wearables, but mainly for quick notifications they might not otherwise see.

“We want to change the formula.
