Tom Cruise Prevents KACM From Parking in the Grand Stadium of

Rabat – Officials from the Kawkab Athletic Club of Marrakech (KACM), a football club from the city of Marrakech and crowned champions of Morocco in two occasions (1958 & 1992), have been reportedly treated “rudely” by American actor Tom Cruise who was given previous approval from authorities to film scenes from his big budget production movie “Mission Impossible 5” in the Grand stadium of Marrakech.KACM officials reportedly felt “humiliated” after being unable to park in the parking lot of the Grand stadium, which is technically their own stadium, and were forced to go through a narrow passage in order to access to the grandstand to watch their club’s match against Ittihad Zemmouri de Khemisset, according to website.Sonarges, the company in charge of many stadiums throughout the country including the Grand stadium of Marrakech, justified Tom cruise’s step to deny access to the parking lot and to the grandstand saying that it was “out of fear of potential damage of filming equipment,” the same source added. read more

Denmark Charges First Woman under Burqa Ban

Rabat – A fight erupted in Denmark when a bystander attempted to remove a woman’s niqab, now illegal in the country.The 28-year-old woman wore her niqab on Friday, August 3, to a shopping mall in Horsholm, north of Copenhagen; at the top of an escalator, another woman attempted to take off her niqab. Onlookers called the police, who gave her two options: remove the veil or leave the mall. Either way, she would receive a fine—the equivalent of MAD 1,470—in the mail.If she continues to wear the niqab in public, she could receive a fine of up to MAD 14,684—or a jail sentence of up to six months. Burqa ban?The Danish Parliament passed the legislation, which mandates that “anyone who wears a garment that hides the face in public will be punished with a fine,” on May 31. The law does not specifically mention the niqab or burqa; the judgment of what does and does not constitute an illegal face covering falls to the police.On the evening of August 1st, the day the law officially entered into effect, hundreds of people of varying religions and ethnic backgrounds gathered in Copenhagen to demonstrate against the legislation—in niqabs and burqas, colorful scarves, horse heads, and fake beards. The crowd marched behind a sign reading, “My clothes, my choice.” Denmark’s second-largest city, Aarhus, saw a protest against the ban the same night. The facially-covered demonstrators did not receive a fine, as the law makes an exception for those peacefully protesting.Read also: Denmark Bans Burqas, Niqabs, and Fake BeardsWho is affected?A 2009 study by University of Copenhagen professor Margit Warburg measured niqab- or burqa-wearing individuals at less than 0.2 percent of Muslim women in the country—approximately 150 women in a country of 5.7 million.However, to the women wearing the burqa or niqab, the issue is critical.Sabina, a 21-year-old education student in Denmark, began wearing the niqab two years before the ban. She said she donned the face veil to feel more connected to God. “It’s not just about us fighting for the right to wear our niqab,” she said. “It’s also about us fighting for right to live our lives as practicing Muslims in Denmark. We are saying to the government: we do not accept this form of racist, Islamophobic and oppressive politics.”“The niqab is a huge part of my identity. It’s a very spiritual choice—and now it has also become a sign of protest.” Sabina is one of the founders of Kvinder i Dialog (Women in Dialogue). Begun by niqab-wearing women, the organization strives to create a link between Muslim women and the population of Denmark.  Fellow Kvinder i Dialog founder Sarah, 30, is a student and mother. She said she once believed in Denmark’s tradition of tolerance; now, if she wants to go somewhere, she thinks, “Is it worth getting a fine?”“I have never felt like a victim before,” she said. “This is the first time I’ve felt oppressed.” “You have to be very strong to wear the niqab in Denmark. We are not going to lie down and let people kick us. We are going to fight to the end.”“Latest in a harmful trend”Although the law does not mention Islamic face veils specifically, MP Naser Khader plainly said, “We don’t want the burqa and niqab in Denmark.”Human Rights Watch called the “discriminatory” ban “the latest in a harmful trend,” referencing the “decidedly anti-Muslim tone” present in legal discussion. Danish Minister of Justice Soren Pape Poulsen said the face coverings are “incompatible with Danish values.” A spokesperson from the Danish People’s Party asserted the need for measures against the “Islamization of Denmark.”Similar bans exist across Europe, in France, Belgium, and Austria. Globally, Spain, Italy, Cameroon, and Chad have partial bans. Morocco banned the production and sale of burqas in January 2017, but women may still legally wear them in public.By Anna Schaeffer read more

SecretaryGeneral urges all sides to preserve GeorgianAbkhaz ceasefire

“I have consistently stressed the need for strict observance of the ceasefire and separation-of-forces regime in the area of responsibility of UNOMIG [the UN Observer Mission in Georgia] in order to prevent a resumption of hostilities and create a climate conducive to dialogue between the two sides,” Mr. Ban writes in his latest report on the situation in Abkhazia, Georgia. “Unfortunately, after a period of relative stability in the winter, the last four months have witnessed a resurgence of tensions stemming from, inter alia, clear disagreements as to what constitutes observance or violation of the ceasefire regime,” he adds.“I underline the need for all involved to observe the most rigorous separation of forces on land, at sea and in the air, with the CIS [Commonwealth of Independent States] peacekeeping force having responsibility for the enforcement of that separation,” he states.The Secretary-General appeals to the Abkhaz side to respect the UN mission’s freedom of movement and asks the Georgian side to do the same with the CIS peacekeeping force. He also notes that the recent increase in tensions did not involve only the ceasefire regime, pointing to the bombings and roadside explosions that took place from 29 June to 6 July on both sides of the ceasefire line. Indiscriminate bombing in public places on the Abkhaz side left four people dead, including one UNOMIG staff member, and 18 wounded. “I am deeply concerned by this resort to indiscriminate violence, an unprecedented development with unpredictable consequences for a fragile peace process,” he writes.The Secretary-General also describes the deteriorating relations between Georgia and Russia, noting its effects on the Georgian-Abkhaz issue.“While the UNOMIG mandate is limited to the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict,” he says, “both the conflict prevention and conflict resolution dimensions of its mandate are significantly affected by this deterioration in the relationship between key actors in the process and the polarizing effect it has on the broader international context.”Meanwhile, the negotiation process between the Georgian and Abkhaz sides has remained suspended since Mr. Ban’s previous report in April. Against this backdrop, an assessment of the peace process is currently being undertaken, which includes consultations with the two parties and those international organizations and Member States, including the Group of Friends, that have been most directly involved in the process. Mr. Ban says he intends to report to the Security Council on the outcome of the assessment, which will explore the possibility of a coordinated international response to avert further worsening of the political and security situation. 28 July 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called on the Georgian and Abkhaz sides to preserve the integrity of their ceasefire regime, noting that the last four months have witnessed a resurgence of tensions between the two sides. read more

Norfolk tapped for gas well solutions

The research and exploratory work Norfolk County does on mitigating leaky natural gas wells could find applications across Ontario.The province confirmed Monday that Norfolk will receive $500,000 from the Ford government for this purpose. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry recently indicated that the county met the qualifications for this funding.The province expects Norfolk County to spend a portion of this money on finding a solution to a leaky gas well in Silver Hill near the intersection of McDowell Road West and Forestry Farm Road.This well is leaking high levels of toxic hydrogen sulphide gas. There is no record of whether this is an abandoned gas well or a natural vent.Neighbouring households are being monitored for toxic effects. Correcting the situation is complicated by the fact that the hydrogen sulphide is emanating from a spot in the middle of a wetland.“As Norfolk County has been actively engaged in how to address leaking gas wells the province of Ontario is providing assistance to support mitigation and monitoring opportunities,” local MPP Toby Barrett said Monday in a news release.“Although there isn’t a solution yet, I am confident this funding has helped move us closer to finding one. Norfolk County has been a valuable partner in this work.”The release adds “The knowledge gained will be valuable if there are similar problems in the province in the future.There are more than 25,000 natural gas and petroleum wells across southwestern Ontario. A total of 7,800 of these – active and abandoned – are located in Norfolk and Haldimand.The news release notes that – under the Oil, Gas and Salt Resource Act — private land owners are responsible for correcting gas well issues on their property. read more

Number of Syrian refugees tops 2 million with more on the way

With an estimated 5,000 desperate Syrians fleeing their homes every day, the spiralling violence in the country has now created more than 2 million refugees, the United Nations refugee agency announced today, adding that there is no sign the “humanitarian calamity” will end anytime soon.“The war is now well into its third year and Syria is haemorrhaging women, children and men who cross borders often with little more than the clothes on their backs,” the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said in a statement released to mark the milestone. “This trend is nothing less than alarming, representing a jump of almost 1.8 million people in 12 months.”One year ago today, the number of Syrians registered as refugees or awaiting registration stood at about 230,670 people.UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres said Syria had become “a disgraceful humanitarian calamity with suffering and displacement unparalleled in recent history.” He added that “the only solace is the humanity shown by the neighbouring countries in welcoming and saving the lives of so many refugees.”More than 97 per cent of Syria’s refugees are hosted by countries in the immediate surrounding region. As of the end August, the number of Syrians registered as refugees or pending registration was 110,000 in Egypt, 168,000 in Iraq, 515,000 in Jordan, 716,000 in Lebanon and 460,000 in Turkey. Over half of them are children under 17 years of age. The refugee crisis has placed an overwhelming burden on the host countries’ infrastructures, economies and societies, and with an average of almost 5,000 Syrians fleeing into these countries every day, the need for international support has reached a critical stage.“The world risks being dangerously complacent about the Syrian humanitarian disaster,” said UNHCR Special Envoy and renowned actress, Angelina Jolie. “The tide of human suffering unleashed by the conflict has catastrophic implications. If the situation continues to deteriorate at this rate, the number of refugees will only grow, and some neighbouring countries could be brought to the point of collapse.”Ms. Jolie added that the world was “tragically disunited” on how to end the Syria conflict. “But there should be no disagreement over the need to alleviate human suffering, and no doubt of the world’s responsibility to do more. We have to support the millions of innocent people ripped from their homes, and increase the ability of neighbouring countries to cope with the influx.”On Wednesday, ministers from Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey will meet with UNHCR in Geneva in a bid to accelerate international support.A further 4.2 million people are displaced inside Syria. Taken together, these numbers –amounting to more than 6 million people – mean that more Syrians are now forcibly displaced than people from any other country.With the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) increasing, the World Food Programme (WFP) appealed today for humanitarian access inside Syria to avoid a situation in which hunger becomes an additional factor pushing more people to flee the country. Last month, WFP was only able to dispatch food for 2.4 million people – short of its goal of feeding three million people a month – as a result of the deteriorating security situation.The agency said it plans to further scale up its operations to reach 4 million during October, as recent assessments found that agricultural production will further decline over the next 12 months if the present conflict continues. Meanwhile, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is supporting a major push to ensure that crisis-affected children in Syria could keep learning. Together with the Ministry of Education and the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), UNICEF will this month launch a home-based self-learning programme that will enable over 400,000 children in conflict areas to continue following the national curriculum. In a briefing to reporters in Geneva, UNICEF spokesperson Marixie Mercado said there are some 1.9 million students in grades one to nine that have dropped out of school over the last academic year. Over 3,000 schools have been damaged or destroyed, and more than 930 are now being used as shelters for the displaced.UNICEF is also building prefabricated classrooms in governorates that have been significantly damaged and is procuring school bags with stationary supplies for up to a million children in all 14 governorates. In addition, thousands of teaching-learning kits, recreations supplies and early childhood education material are being delivered. read more

No Clean Growth without Clean Mining

first_imgAs Energy & Mines Ministers from across Canada met earlier this week under the theme of ‘Clean Growth’ for their annual conference in St-Andrews, New Brunswick, a delegation of regional and national Indigenous and advocacy groups, backed-up by a 40,000-strong petition, urged ministers to do much more to protect the environment and communities affected by mining in Canada. “We’re not against ‘clean growth’ or ‘clean energy,’ but these must not be empty words. We’re here to alert the public and our governments that there are still serious problems with the way mining is done in this country, and that there can’t be any clean growth or clean energy without first having clean mining,” stated Jacinda Mack, a community member affected by the Mount Polley mine disaster in British Columbia in 2014 — the biggest mining spill in Canadian history. Mack is now coordinator of the First Nations Women Advocating for Responsible Mining. “The need to respect Indigenous rights and community consent before mines are approved is also a major concern,” stated Grand Chief Ron Tremblay of the Traditional Wolastoq Grand Council, which has been vocally opposed to the massive Sisson mine project in the Nashwaak’s and St. Johns’ River watersheds in New-Brunswick. Using recent government data, the delegation estimates the total liability for contaminated mining sites across Canada to be well above C$10 billion, a figure it estimates can easily triple or quadruple once the true costs for site clean-up and risks from spills and failures are considered. The delegation also draws on recent studies to highlight a 60% increase in rates of catastrophic failures and large mining spills worldwide over the last two decades. Researchers predict this trend will continue to worsen due to ever larger mining waste facilities, poor economics of many mines, decreasing ore quality, and inadequate mining oversight. In Canada, the delegation reports over 20 mining spills in the last decade alone (2008-2017), including six that released more than 1 million litres of contaminated wastes in nearby rivers, lakes and soils. The largest fine reported for one of these spills is $7.5 million. Ugo Lapointe, Canada Program Coordinator for MiningWatch: “This is a drop in the bucket that cannot seriously dissuade any mining company of doing a better job.” The delegation is also releasing today a new study on the Sisson project, which concludes that “the mining waste facility design is business-as-usual, using the same facility design and water cover approach used at the failed Mt Polley mine.” The study, conducted by Dr David Chambers of the Center for Science in Public Participation, identifies several problems with the current design and states that “none of these concerns have been directly addressed in the 40 conditions required by the Province or the recent Federal government authorization.” In 2015, the Expert Panel report on the Mount Polley disaster concluded that “business as usual cannot continue” and called for broad regulatory reforms. In 2015, in response to a letter signed by over 70 organizations from across Canada, the Canadian Mines Ministers committed “to review the recommendations made subsequent to the Mont Polley spill” and “to ensure that standards for industry reflect the highest level of environmental protection.” Tara Scurr, Amnesty International Canada: “Now is the time for governments to act and work with Indigenous communities, public interest groups, academics and independent experts to reform our laws and to do what is necessary before another disaster strikes.” MiningWatch lists urgent actions that can be taken by governments. The delegation invited members of the public and the media to attend a public information meeting on Monday night, August 14, at St-Mary’s First Nation Cultural Centre in Fredericton. Tracy Glynn of the Conservation Council of New Brunswick: “This will be an occasion to learn more about the Sisson project and to hear first-hand accounts of people that have witnessed or been impacted by catastrophic mining waste spills. We all want to protect the Nashwaak’s and St Johns’ rivers from such disasters.”last_img read more

Vivre à proximité des autoroutes multiplierait par deux le risque dautisme

first_imgVivre à proximité des autoroutes multiplierait par deux le risque d’autismeD’après une nouvelle étude de chercheurs américains, le risque d’autisme serait multiplié par deux chez les enfants dont la mère a vécu près d’une autoroute durant sa grossesse.L’autisme se caractérise généralement par des troubles du comportement et une incapacité à s’adapter à l’environnement social. Une nouvelle étude sur le sujet menée aux Etats-Unis aurait démontré que le risque de développer ce trouble serait deux fois plus important chez les enfants dont la mère a vécu près d’une autoroute durant la grossesse, et cela à cause de la pollution de l’air qu’elle implique.Ainsi l’étude a porté sur 563 enfants de 2 à 5 ans, dont 304 étaient autistes, rapporte Un enfant sur dix vivait à moins de 300 mètres d’une autoroute. Heather Volk, chercheur et un des auteurs de l’étude, précise : “Cela ne veut pas dire que la pollution de l’air ou les embouteillages favorisent l’autisme. Il pourrait néanmoins s’agir de facteurs qui contribueraient à son développement”. De son côté, le Centre pour le contrôle et la prévention des maladies explique qu’un enfant sur 110 serait aujourd’hui atteint d’autisme alors que les méthodes de dépistage sont de plus en plus utilisées et efficaces.Le 24 décembre 2010 à 18:06 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Au fin fond des océans James Cameron décrit un paysage lunaire

first_imgAu fin fond des océans, James Cameron décrit “un paysage lunaire”James Cameron est le premier homme à avoir plongé à plus de 10 kilomètres au fond de la fosse des Mariannes, dans le Pacifique. À bord de son sous-marin, le Challenger Deep, il a passé plus de 3h30 au fond de l’océan pour ramener ces premières images. De Titanic à Avatar en passant par Abyss ou Sanctum, le réalisateur canadien James Cameron semble avoir toujours eu une relation particulière avec les profondeurs sous-marines. Il l’a désormais prouvé en devenant le premier homme à avoir effectué une plongée de 11 kilomètres dans le Pacifique, là où personne n’est jamais allé. Revenu cette semaine, l’explorateur a été assailli de toutes parts pour raconter ce qu’il avait vu. Mais les premières images de son expédition ne se sont pas fait attendre puisque le National Geographic les a d’ores et déjà dévoilées. “C’est un endroit lunaire, très abandonné et isolé. J’avais l’impression d’être complétement coupé du reste de l’humanité. J’ai eu l’impression d’avoir fait un aller-retour sur une autre planète en l’espace d’une journée”, a expliqué James Cameron cité par le Daily Mail. “À un moment, j’ai dû m’arrêter un moment, juste le temps de me dire: “ça y est, j’y suis ! Je suis au fond de l’océan, l’endroit le plus profond de la Terre! Qu’est-ce-que ça signifie pour moi?””, a encore précisé le réalisateur, repris par le National Turk. “C’est surtout le sentiment d’isolement qui prend le dessus, vous réalisez à quel point vous êtes petit dans cet endroit vaste, inconnu et inexploré”, a t-il également ajouté.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Petite déception, pourtant pour le réalisateur qui espérait pouvoir apercevoir d’étranges créatures sous-marines en mesure de réveiller le scénariste en lui, explique CBS News.

Governor orders reorganization of commercial fisheries commission

first_imgDownload AudioGov. Bill Walker issued an administrative order Tuesday that transfers many functions of the Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission into the Department of Fish and Game. The reorganization will save the state more than $1.3 million a year, according to the governor’s office.The CFEC, an autonomous state agency, is responsible for deciding what commercial fisheries to limit, who gets to participate in them and adjudicating appeal cases. It also issues permits and licenses, which bring in the majority of the agency’s revenue.The administrative order moves CFEC’s licensing, permitting, research, information technology, accounting, payroll, procurement and budget services to Fish and Game. This transfer would affect about a dozen of the commission’s 25 employees. Some vacancies and at least one office manager will be eliminated, according to Fish and Game Deputy Commissioner Kevin Brooks.Brooks said the reorganization will be done in phases.“We’ve got to do it orderly and make sure we maintain services to the fleet. We don’t want to do something that’s going to disrupt issuing permits to fishermen. We’re not going to take any action that’s going to compromise the ability of the folks doing the job to keep doing that job,” Brooks said.CFEC will retain its adjudication functions, which include the positions of three commissioners, a hearing officer, legal staff and clerical positions.Brooks said part of the $1.3 million of savings includes the three commissioner positions going from full-time to part-time in January 2017. Other savings will come from not renewing CFEC’s building lease when it’s up in August 2017.Brooks said the ideal long-term solution is to move the 12 reorganized employees to Fish and Game headquarters.“We can get the groups working together and get some of the synergies we’re hoping to get by bringing the licensing staff together and our IT staff together,” Brooks said.A report by the Legislature’s audit division released in October suggested similar changes to the governor’s order.A different report by Fish and Game drew attention to backlogged permit application cases, a slow work pace by the three commissioners who head the agency, and alternatives to the agency’s organizational structure.Rep. Paul Seaton and Rep. Louise Stutes both have tried to eliminate CFEC with bills in 2014 and 2015.last_img read more

WASHINGTON — Sen Kirsten Gillibrand is expected t

first_img WASHINGTON — Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is expected to move toward launching a 2020 presidential campaign within days by forming an exploratory committee, according to several people familiar with her plans.The New York Democrat will likely announce her intentions ahead of a trip to Iowa this weekend, one person said. She will be a guest Tuesday night on CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak on Gillibrand’s timing. Gillibrand’s representatives didn’t comment Monday on her plans.Gillibrand would become the fifth Democrat — and second senator — to jump into a presidential primary that could ultimately feature dozens of candidates. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts along with former Obama Cabinet member Julian Castro and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii are among those who have taken steps toward a 2020 run. Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kamala Harris of California could also enter the race soon.While Gillibrand’s prominence as a face of her party has grown, she faces a tough battle to capture the attention of Democratic voters in a crowded field that’s expected to include multiple women. Several of her potential rivals have spent more time in critical primary states while Gillibrand has visited one — New Hampshire — in October to stump for the Democratic candidate for governor.She’s expected to move quickly this week to make connections in the leadoff caucus state of Iowa. She’s scheduled to headline a meeting with Democratic activists in Sioux City on Friday evening. The event is to be held at a private home with top donors to the Woodbury County Democratic Party.Gillibrand has been in touch with some Iowa Democrats and enlisted the help of Lara Henderson, who was finance director for Fred Hubbell, the 2018 Democratic candidate for governor. But she hasn’t built up a network in the state to the degree of prospective rivals, including Booker and Harris.She was appointed to the Senate in 2009 to succeed Hillary Clinton, who became secretary of state, and she easily won re-election, most recently in November. She has $10.6 million in her campaign fund, which can be used to jump-start a presidential bid.During her time in the Senate, Gillibrand has been a central figure in Washington’s reckoning with the #MeToo era.In 2017, she was the first Senate Democrat to call on Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota, a fellow Democrat, to resign amid multiple sexual misconduct allegations. She has said President Bill Clinton should have stepped down after his relationship with a White House intern was revealed and has also called on President Donald Trump to resign over sexual assault allegations.And before #MeToo, Gillibrand spent several years pushing for legislation addressing sexual assault in the military and on college campuses.In recent weeks, Gillibrand has worked to expand her fundraising network and improve her standing among key voting blocs, including African-American voters.___Associated Press writers Michael Balsamo and Julie Pace in Washington, David Bauder in New York and Thomas Beaumont in Des Moines, Iowa, contributed to this report.Juana Summers, The Associated Press by Juana Summers, The Associated Press Posted Jan 15, 2019 7:37 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img AP sources: Gillibrand moving toward 2020 bid in coming dayslast_img read more
