Jeune Afrique King Mohammed VI Has Changed Morocco in 20 Years

Rabat – In “Africa in 2019,” a special edition about what factors are likely to drive continental politics in the coming year, Jeune Afrique, arguably Francophone Africa’s most read and influential magazine, paid particular attention to King Mohammed VI of Morocco’s twenty years of reign.On July 30 of next year, King Mohammed VI will celebrate the 20th anniversary of his ascension to the throne. How has the King fared in his two decades in charge? How has Morocco changed under his auspices and what awaits the North African country in 2019 as it seems to be looking to the future with regional aspirations?There are still daily difficulties, especially a youth with fewer opportunities and seeking to leave the country at all costs, Jeune Afrique said of Morocco’s current social and political states. But for all the persisting difficulties, the article hastened to add, Morocco is now “incomparably more accessible, free, and open.”In what reads like a paean to the King’s policies, the newspaper discredited all the criticism that has come Mohammed VI’s way in recent years. According to Francois Soudan, the newspaper’s editor-in-chief who penned the editorial, the Morocco that critics often portray is starkly different from the Morocco that has emerged under Mohammed VI’s guidance.“None of the catastrophic predictions about Morocco held true,” Soudan wrote. And as Morocco continues to thrive despite some “stubborn” issues, “one is tempted to wonder about what really bothers” the kingdom’s “alarmist critics.”Maybe, the article answered its own wonder, “European commentators have a problem with how attached Moroccans are to the monarchy, as well as to a King who is seen as the commander of all believers.”While “Moroccans feared Hassan II,” they seem to “love his son” as people never protested against his legitimacy or doubted his devotion to the country’s well-being, “even in the hottest moments of recent upheavals.”“Of course there have been upheavals in the two decades. Terrorist strikes, the 20 February uprisings, the Hirak movement in the Rif. But every time, in complete rupture with his father’s style, Mohammed VI reacted at the right time.”In addition to the “professionalism of security forces” in the case of Hirak, Mohammed VI showed that he sympathized with popular demands by “immediately re-launching development and employment-generating projects” for historically marginalized regions.But the 20 years have been no bed of roses. Poor education quality and a deepening lack of employment prospects for young Moroccans are still some of the issues that Mohammed VI’s Morocco has not entirely come to terms with.“The way forward for Morocco’s youth is still long,” the article noted, citing risks of radicalization and related dangers connected to youth issues. But it quickly added a corrective note, saying that the country’s current poor performance on the educational front should not downplay King Mohammed VI’s “passionate efforts” to find a solution to Morocco’s education and youth issues.“One has to be either blind or ill-intentioned to pretend, as do some in Europe, that Morocco has not changed and the transition between the two reigns has not yet taken place. Morocco today is freer and more open than it ever was.” read more

UN envoy to TimorLeste praises handling of ministers trial

After an appeals court upheld the seven-and-a-half-year sentence of former Interior Minister Rogerio Lobato, the head of the UN Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT), Atul Khare, commended all parties involved in the trial, noting that Mr. Lobato submitted voluntarily and peacefully to justice. Mr. Khare expressed hope that others would follow this example, including Major Alfredo Reinado, another target of investigations by the UN Independent Special Commission of Inquiry for Timor-Leste, set up to look into the deadly violence that erupted in May and April 2006. Speaking of Mr. Lobato’s case, UNMIT said in a press release that: “The latest decision shows that a culture of impunity will not be tolerated in Timor-Leste and that respect for the legal process will lead to the longer term goals of reconciliation and unity.”The 2006 crisis, attributed to differences between eastern and western regions, erupted after the firing of some 600 striking soldiers, a third of the armed forces. Ensuing violence claimed at least 37 lives and drove 155,000 people, 15 per cent of the total population, from their homes.The Security Council created UNMIT in August 2006 to help restore order after the violence, especially in the run-up to this year’s elections, which were the first polls held in the tiny nation since it gained independence from Indonesia in 2002. 14 May 2007The top United Nations envoy in Timor-Leste today praised the handling of the ongoing case against a former interior minister who was convicted of arming civilians in the deadly violence that rocked the small South-East Asian country last year. read more

No more Melania Trump underwear or honey for Slovenians

LJUBLJANA, Slovenia – No more Melania Trump honey, cakes, shoes and underwear for Slovenians.The future U.S. first lady has hired a law firm in her native country to protect her name and image from being used on numerous products that have sprung up since her husband, Donald Trump, was elected president.Natasa Pirc Musar, director of the Pirc Musar&Partnerji law firm, said Friday that the use of the name “Melania Trump” for commercial purposes without approval of her client would be against the law in the small Alpine state and would represent a violation of personal rights.“Judicial practice in Slovenia is clear: the use of the name, surname and photo of someone for commercial purposes without approval is not allowed,” Pirc Musar told The Associated Press, adding that the law firm has sent a press release to all Slovenian media, warning of a possible violation of the Melania Trump registered trademark.Items that were named after her include honey jars with labels showing her smiling face and the inscription “from the home garden of Melania Trump,” cakes decorated with golden dust, high heel shoes, an underwear line, a type of salad and even a big Christmas tree in the capital.Pirc Musar said that Melania Trump so far has not launched any legal claims.“We issued only a general warning,” Pirc Musar said. “We did not decide to call anybody or to demand anything. We have nothing against the Christmas tree in Ljubljana named Melania because this has nothing to do with commercial purposes. But we can’t allow some products to be named ‘Melania Trump.’”Born Melanija Knavs, Melania Trump left Slovenia in her 20s to pursue an international modeling career. The last time she is believed to have visited her native country was in July 2002, when she introduced Donald Trump to her parents at the lakeside Grand Hotel Toplice in the resort town of Bled two years before the couple’s engagement.It is not clear whether the branding of some products only as “Melania” would also represent the trademark breach.According to the national statistics bureau, 25 people in Slovenia are named Melania and 198 are called Melanija, the Slavic version of the name.___Dusan Stojanovic in Belgrade, Serbia, contributed to this report. by Ali Zerdin, The Associated Press Posted Dec 2, 2016 8:32 am MDT Last Updated Dec 2, 2016 at 11:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this July 18, 2016, file photo, Melania Trump, wife of Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump walks to the stage as Donald Trump introduces her during the opening day of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Google des lunettesphone bientôt sur le marché

first_imgGoogle : des lunettes-phone bientôt sur le marché ? Google est présent partout et surtout là où ça marche bien ! Son dernier projet en date est le développement de lunettes à réalité augmentée avec un profil smartphone. Avis aux nostalgiques de la vision, un peu spéciale, de Terminator… Qui a dit que les lunettes étaient ringardes ? Après le Cloud et le paiement sans contact (NFL), Google entreprend de développer un projet de lunettes connectées, qui pourraient vous faire regretter votre oeil de lynx. Selon le site 9to5, ces dernières seraient équipées d’un capteur frontal, d’un flash et d’un GPS. Reprenant le design des Oakley Thumps, ces lunettes pourraient ainsi permettre à l’utilisateur de profiter de la réalité augmentée. Autrement dit, de nombreuses informations seraient affichées en temps réel directement devant les yeux de l’utilisateur.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Pour cela, l’un des deux verres sera en réalité un écran embarquant un système d’affichage tête haute ATH permettant l’accès aux données et au système d’exploitation, Android bien sûr. La navigation sur Android devrait être possible grâce à de légers mouvements de la tête, simples et intuitifs. Mais la paire de lunettes pourrait aussi être munie d’une puce 3G, permettant de passer et de recevoir des appels. Les capacités de ces lunettes devraient être similaires à celle d’un smartphone fonctionnant sous la dernière génération d’Android. Mais Google ne semble pas être le seul constructeur à s’intéresser aux lunettes nouvelle génération, même si la version bêta des siennes pourrait sortir d’ici quelques mois.

Game of the Year Magikarp Jump

first_img Review: ‘Fantasy Strike’ Is A Fighting Game That Understands…Game of the Year: Jordan Minor’s Best Video Games of 2018 For too long the definition of “Game of the Year” has been unfairly narrow. How boring is it to see every website shower the same stale AAA games with praise at the end of each holiday season? So at we’re doing what we can to put a stop to this in Game of the Year, a new column celebrating worthy alternative picks for the year’s greatest game regardless of genre, platform, year of release, or even quality. Here, any game can be Game of the Year!I gotta level with y’all. I’m still a bit sore about the recent Pokemon announcement not being a reveal of the rumored (and still very much possible) “Pokemon Stars” for Nintendo Switch. But even if that game is still years away, Pokemon feels like it has never been more omnipresent.Part of that is due to the franchise’s recent embrace of mobile phones, only possible because of its semi-independence from Nintendo. We all remember the Pokemon Go craze but that was only one of many Pokemon spin-offs and card games that keep hitting iOS and Android at a steady clip. Magikarp Jump might be the most experimental mobile Pokemon offshoot yet, and it’s the Game of the Year.Magikarp Jump begins like any other traditional Pokemon game. You play as a child setting off on an adventure across the world of Pokemon. A professor gives you helpful guidance while various gyms and leagues challenge you to prove your worth.However, there’s one big tweak. Instead of collecting the biggest, most diverse menagerie of elemental monsters possible, the only Pokemon can you deploy is Magikarp. Yes, Magikarp, the pathetic fish that can only flop around. The joke Pokemon that only becomes useful if you manage to evolve it into the fearsome Gyarados (fearsome in other games, it’s useless in this one). Fortunately, everyone else also only has access to Magikarp, and instead of forcing the fish to fight, they compete in jumping contests. As the name implies, the goal of Magikarp Jump is to train your own Magikarp that jump higher than anyone else’s.To get those big ups for your pitiful sea creature, you’ll have to train it like any other Pokemon. Feed it in its dank pond. Make sure it does its exercises. Bring in other Pokemon like Pikachu as encouragement. However, not all Magikarp are created equally. Some have higher maximum potential than others, again like any other Pokemon. Magikarp gain levels but so do you as a trainer, and with a higher level, you can catch better Magikarp. Magikarp can also get eaten, die, or retire with any wrong move, so you’ll have to get accustomed to regularly fishing anyway. As its own theme song says, a Magikarp is unreliable.Training is important in a traditional Pokemon game, but the fun comes from the strategy of using different moves and monsters. However, in Magikarp Jump, the only thing that matters is raising the one power number for the one jump move higher and higher. You don’t see your opponent’s power until the match is finished, but the Magikarp with a higher jumping stat always wins. It’s pure math. The training exercises are similarly brainless tap sessions, and of course you’re hamstrung by timers and currency and other free-to-play elements.So why is what is essentially a more involved clicker game a Game of the Year? Because intentionally or not, I think Magikarp Jump serves as a great, sly, Pokemon self-parody. It shares all of these surface-level similarities with the main RPGs when it comes to format and gameplay progression. But it’s been boiled down to a hilarious degree. It’s making fun of how dumb and repetitive and grindy Pokemon, and really all RPGs, can be if you strip down the mechanics to their purest forms. Making the laughable Magikarp the star is just a cherry on top for an ironic Pokemon game. Even the art style kind of seems like a bootleg take on familiar Pokemon.Because they are so similar, I can only play a mainline Pokemon game every so often, and I’m waiting for a Switch version before really jumping back in. But in the meantime, as a funny, cool, hipster, alt-Pokemon game, Magikarp Jump is keeping me plenty entertained, so it’s the Game of the Year.Check back next week to read about the next Game of the Year!

US asks Myanmar to create conditions for sustainable Rohingya return

first_imgUS State Department. File PhotoThe United States has called on Myanmar to create the conditions that would allow for voluntary, safe, dignified, and sustainable returns of Rohingyas to their place of origin in Rakhine State, reports UNB.The US also commended the government of Bangladesh’s generosity in responding to this humanitarian crisis and appreciated its continued efforts to ensure assistance reaches the affected population, said the US Department of State in a media note on Friday.Earlier, the United States announced $60 million in humanitarian assistance at the launch of the 2019 UN Joint Response Plan for Bangladesh in Geneva.This funding will help address the emergency needs of more than 900,000 Rohingyas in Bangladesh, most of whom are Rohingya women and children from Myanmar, and the related needs of Bangladeshi host communities.The beneficiaries include Rohingyas who have taken refuge in Bangladesh since August 2017, when Myanmar security forces began committing atrocities, including ethnic cleansing, against Rohingya villagers across northern Rakhine State.The United States remains the leading contributor to the humanitarian response to this crisis in Myanmar and Bangladesh, having provided nearly $449 million since the outbreak of violence in August 2017, of which nearly $406 million is for programmes inside Bangladesh.”We continue to call on others to join us in contributing to this humanitarian response,” the media note reads.US assistance provides protection, emergency shelter, food, water, sanitation, health care, psychosocial support, and education for people affected by the crisis, including Bangladeshi host communities and people displaced inside Myanmar and in the region.US assistance also supports the efforts of humanitarian organisations and the government of Bangladesh to improve camp infrastructure and shelter ahead of the monsoon and cyclone seasons.last_img read more

UH Takes Big Step toward Establishing College of Medicine with Approval from

first_imgThe University of Houston took Thursday a big step toward establishing its College of Medicine after the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) unanimously approved a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree for UH.“We continue to take careful, well-measured steps forward, and receiving the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s endorsement is another clear indication that we are on the right track,” said Renu Khator, president of the University of Houston.  “We look forward to sustaining this progress and playing a vital role in improving the overall health and health care resources of our city and our state.” “The UH and Houston community is energized in support of this project. We are thankful that the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board sees the validity of our mission to train physicians with a deep understanding of health disparities and social determinants of health,” said Dr. Stephen Spann, founding dean of the College of Medicine. “We remain focused on recruiting top quality faculty while developing an innovative curriculum.”There are still several critical steps remaining before the College of Medicine can open its doors to students. In December, the College of Medicine will submit its application for accreditation with the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), the federal accrediting body for medical degree programs.In January 2019, UH will seek $40 million in appropriations over 10 years from the Texas Legislature, approximately eight percent of the total $450 million in funding sources.The remaining startup costs include private support, intellectual property revenue, institutional funds and private/public partnerships. To date, UH has raised $35 million of $40 million in private philanthropy for the college.This week, UH released a video in which health care and business leaders acknowledge the need for a new college of medicine in Houston focusing on forming primary care physicians and support the university’s plan. Bill McKeon, president and chief executive officer of the Texas Medical Center, says in the video a primary care-focused medical school is “essential” for Houston and adds the institutions that form the Texas Medical Center see the UH College of Medicine as “extremely complementary to the existing hospitals and medical schools.”The UH College of Medicine aims for at least 50 percent of each graduating class to specialize in primary care, while the national average is approximately 20 percent. UH contends that philosophy is useful because Texas faces a substantial primary care physician shortage and ranks 47th out of 50 states in primary care physician-to-population ratio. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, the state will need to add another 6,400, a 32 percent increase, by 2030.Additionally, Houston’s population has tripled since the last medical school was established in the city in 1972 and, despite being home to the Texas Medical Center, large sections of the city are measured as having high or moderately high levels of socioeconomic disadvantage, according to the Health of Houston Survey 2015.Earlier this month, Humana announced a $15 million gift to UH to launch the Humana Integrated Health System Sciences Institute, which will unite the College of Medicine with the existing Colleges of Nursing, Pharmacy, Social Work and Optometry.The College of Medicine is scheduled to admit 30 students in its inaugural class.UH is finalizing a partnership with HCA Houston Healthcare, the largest hospital company in the nation, to bring a total of 389 new resident positions to the College of Medicine over its first six years.

Convicted gay serial killer Dennis Nilsen dies in prison age 72

I’ll tell you everything. I want to get it off my chest. Not here — at the police station.’And when asked if the remains belonged to one person or two in the flat, Nilson responded: ’15 or 16, since 1978.’Dennis Nilson: The confessionDennis Nilson confessed to everything at the police station.During the 30-hour-long police interview, Nilson also admitted to a ritual bathing and shaving of the deceased bodies. This was to fit into his idea of his perfect physical type.One of his victims was as young as 14 years old.He applied make-up to obvious blemishes on the skin and dressed the bodies in socks and underwear. He then occasionally placed his penis in between the deceased men’s thighs and rubbed against them.Nilson sprayed bug repellent to ward off insects from the bodies and deodorants to keep the smell away. But to little avail.He was brought to trial on 24 October 1983, then on 4 November that same year, a jury returned a majority verdict of guilty.A judge sentenced Dennis Nilson to a minimum of 25 years’ imprisonment.Got a news tip?

Tony Fernandes named CAPA Airline CEO of the Year

first_imgL to R. AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes with CAPA Executive Chairman Peter HarbisonTony Fernandes named CAPA Airline CEO of the YearAirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes has been named Airline CEO of the Year at the 2016 CAPA Aviation Awards for Excellence.The award was presented to him at a gala dinner held at Hotel Okura here last night.This is the third time Fernandes has won the accolade from influential aviation consultancy CAPA – Centre for Aviation. The first two times were in 2004 and 2005.AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes said, “AirAsia has come a long way since I won the first ever CAPA Airline CEO of the Year award in 2004. And in those 12 years, AirAsia has both changed and stayed the same. Back in 2004, the low-cost model was still something new to Asia. We had just embarked on our first two affiliates outside of Malaysia, in Thailand and Indonesia. We had 17 planes and 1,400 staff, and people were only starting to notice us.“Since then, we’ve grown into a truly Asean airline with operations in Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, India, and soon, Japan, more than 200 aircraft and 17,000 Allstars. We’re the only airline that flies to all 10 Asean nations and, with Fly-Thru, we can connect the whole of Asia Pacific, from Japan, Korea and China to Australia and New Zealand to India and beyond, in just one stop. We even fly as far as Mauritius now. So that’s what’s changed.“What has stayed the same through the years is our unending commitment to quality and innovation and the dream that everyone can fly. This wonderful award is a testament to the fact that the dream is still very much alive, and we will continue to hold to this dream as we go into the next 12 years and beyond.”CAPA said Fernandes was selected for the award for successfully steering AirAsia to increased profitability and an improved outlook this year following an “extremely challenging” 2015.It noted the new capital raised from the issuance of new shares, expansion of operations in China, the upcoming relaunch of AirAsia Japan and the formation of an aircraft leasing business which is expected to be spun off, raising more capital and reducing group leverage.CAPA Executive Chairman Peter Harbison said, “AirAsia is back at the front of the pack in the challenging Asian market and Tony has once again shown why he is one of the industry’s leading executives. The original short-haul operations in Malaysia and Thailand are again among the most profitable airlines in Asia while Indonesia and Philippines are expected to be profitable again in H2 2016. AirAsia X is also back in the black following a restructuring.”The CAPA Aviation Awards are regarded as the pre-eminent awards for strategic excellence in aviation.Recipients are chosen by an independent international panel of judges to reward airlines and airports that are not only successful but also provide industry leadership in adjusting to a new environment.Past winners of the Airline CEO of the Year award include Qantas Airways CEO Alan Joyce, Etihad Airways CEO James Hogan and Willie Walsh, CEO of IAG, the holding company for British Airways, Aer Lingus, Iberia and Vueling.Source = AirAsia Grouplast_img read more

Hiring Down 43 in March

first_img May 7, 2013 414 Views Hiring fell 4.3 percent in March, the same month in which payroll job growth plunged, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported Tuesday in its monthly “”Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS)””: [IMAGE]Job growth in March was initially reported at 88,000–the weakest in nine months–but later revised up to 138,000. While hirings dropped in March, separations increased 0.8 percent.According to the JOLTS report, the number of persons unemployed for each job opening fell to 3.05, the lowest level since October 2008, from 3.09 in February.The JOLTS report details the ins and out of the labor market. According to the report, the number of layoffs and discharges in March rose 7.7 percent to 1,693,000, the highest level since September, from 1,572,000 in February.At the same time, the number of “”quits,”” generally a sign of confidence in the ability to get another job, fell in March to 2,160,000, a drop of 5.5 percent from February.Still, the report showed a continual improvement in the labor market, with 51.8 million hires in the last 12 months, up from 50.6 million in the previous 12 months.[COLUMN_BREAK]The number of job openings at the end of March slipped to 3.84 million from 3.9 million in February. Job openings fell month-over-month in most major industry sectors, led by a drop of 37,000 in professional and business services. There were 2.0 jobseekers for every opening in that sector in March, up from 1.7 in February.Data from the report indicated there were 11.2 unemployed construction workers for every available job in March, up from 9.0 in February. By industry, the number of unemployed persons per job opening also increased in the manufacturing and information sectors. The number of unemployed persons per job opening declined in financial activities, education and health services, and leisure and hospitality. The drop in job openings in manufacturing is a consequence of the federal budget sequester, which caused a cutback in defense spending.The “”JOLTS”” report tracks flows within the labor sector, noting hirings and separations by month as well as the number of job openings at the end of a month. It is reported by BLS on a one month lag.
