Mars in Morocco EU Partners Test Space Robotics Technologies in Moroccan

October 12, 2019

Rabat – According to a press release by the Robotics Innovation Center in Bremen, Germany,  the center will conduct a four-week field test campaign November 14 to December 14, on the northern part of the Moroccan Sahara as part of the European Union’s Strategic Research Cluster (SRC) on Space Robotics Technologies.The overall goal of this strategic research cluster (SRC) is to enable major advances in Europe’s space robotic technologies.Read Also: Moroccan Scientist Kamal Oudrhiri Proud of NASA’s InSight Mars LandingThe project is a joint collaboration between the European Space Agency (ESA), the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the national space agencies of France, Spain, Italy, and Great Britain. Inspired by the NASA Mars Sample Return Mission, the field test campaign aims to make use of a recently developed software which enables a rover connected to a robot to cross nsa one-kilometer distance over the Moroccan desert to collect soil samples. In the process, the rover will have to make his way through the different ground obstacles since the area is known for wide plains, steep slopes, and gorges.The rover has already successfully participated in a simulated space mission in the semi-desert of Utah, USA, in 2016. read more

World needs UN more than ever Annan tells US audience

October 6, 2019

“The threats and challenges we face require as never before multilateral cooperation if they are to be dealt with successfully,” the Secretary-General said, according to the text of his prepared remarks to the UN Association of the United States International Visionaries Award Dinner.Mr. Annan pointed out that the negotiations leading to the adoption last Friday of a new Security Council resolution on Iraq showed what a central role the UN can – and must – play in the quest for a world free from the threat of weapons of mass destruction. “In short, the UN played its proper role as the only universal instrument of global cooperation,” he said.Just as important will be the broader effort to fight terrorism, and the defeat of those forces of hatred, distrust and repression that enable it, Mr. Annan added. “Terrorism is a global threat with global effects; its methods are murder and mayhem, but its consequences affect every aspect of the United Nations agenda – from development to peace to human rights and the rule of law,” he said.The United Nations, therefore, has a clear obligation to deal with this global threat, “an indispensable role to play in providing the necessary legal and organizational framework within which the international campaign against terrorism can unfold,” the Secretary-General said.Mr. Annan warned, however, that just as terrorism must never be excused, genuine grievances must also never be ignored. Although it might detract from the justice of a cause when a few wicked men commit murder in its name, it does not make it any less urgent that the cause is addressed, the grievance heard, the wrong put right. “Otherwise, we risk losing that most central of wars – the war for the hearts and minds of much of mankind,” he said.“As the United Nations unites to defeat terrorism in the months and years ahead, we must act with equal determination to solve the political disputes and long-standing conflicts which generate an atmosphere conducive to support for terrorism,” the Secretary-General said. “To do so is not to reward terrorism or its perpetrators; it is to deny them the opportunity to find refuge or recruits, in any cause, any country. Only then can we truly say that the war on terrorism has been won.” read more

Loonie rises amid positive European data greenback mixed ahead of Fed meeting

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 16, 2013 6:47 am MDT TORONTO – The Canadian dollar closed higher Monday as commodity prices advanced amid strong U.S. and European factory data.The loonie rose 0.08 of a cent to 94.46 cents US with the greenback mixed against other currencies ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s meeting Wednesday when markets may find out if the central bank will start to taper its monthly US$85 billion of bond purchases.Speculation about Fed intentions has grown considerably over the past couple of weeks amid strong economic data, particularly a solid employment report for last month. Also, a bipartisan committee struck a U.S. congressional budget bill, which would remove the threat of another government shutdown.But opinion is split on what the Fed will do.“Our U.S. analysts weigh in against the notion of a taper announcement this week,” said Mark Chandler, head of Canadian FIC Strategy at RBC Dominion Securities, adding they are looking for the Fed to start cutting back on asset purchases in March.Oil prices rose amid a pair of strong economic reports from the U.S. and Europe.In the U.S., factory production rose 0.6 per cent November, led by a surge in auto output.Other data showed economic activity in the eurozone picked up in December. Financial information company Markit says its Purchasing Managers Index beat expectations, rising to a 31-month high of 52.7 from 51.6 in November. At the same time, the services PMI slipped to a four-month low of 51 from 51.2.The January crude oil contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange gained 88 cents to US$97.48 a barrel.The March copper contract edged up two cents to US$3.33 a pound while February gold added $9.80 to US$1,244.40 an ounce as traders weighed the chances of Fed easing.Other data showed that China’s manufacturing sector grew at a slightly slower pace in December, according to a preliminary survey by HSBC. Its flash purchasing managers’ index slowed to a three-month low of 50.5.However, the reading was still high enough to indicate that China’s economy is continuing to recover since slowing to 7.5 per cent growth in the second quarter.

Regulators across Canada warn about sham stock promotion using popular apps

October 3, 2019

VANCOUVER – Securities regulators in nine provinces are warning about fraudulent stock promotions that use popular smartphone applications such as WhatsApp to generate investor interest.They say the so-called pump-and-dump scheme targets potential investors in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, and Saskatchewan.The sham involves creating artificial interest in a particular stock by using spam to talk up the benefits of a company and convince people to invest.But investors have no idea that the person or company touting the stock owns a large amount of it and as more investors buy shares, the value skyrockets.Securities regulators say that once the price hits a peak, the scam artists sell their shares and the stock value plummets, with investors left holding worthless shares.They say app users should ignore any promotional spam and report it to their provincial or territorial securities regulatory authority. by The Canadian Press Posted Oct 20, 2015 3:30 pm MDT Last Updated Oct 21, 2015 at 7:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Regulators across Canada warn about sham stock promotion using popular apps read more

We need to call for the Speaker to be held personally responsible for the incident. This is not going to go down easily, this is unprecedented and I think that it is designed to distract attention from the US $20 million that they are trying to steal. This is all carefully worked out, I have seen a number of breaches from the other side that he has refused to act on and on this issue, suddenly the Police is called in, so we will ensure that he deals with this personally” Jadgeo said.However, Natural Resources Minster, Raphael Trotman met with the Opposition and requested that Edghill leave in order for a discussion to be had to determine what will be done regarding the incident.MP Gail Teixeira loudly refused to comply with the request noting that the Speaker himself has to demand that the Police be removed and only then will the Opposition meet for a discussion.The Opposition Leader is currently meeting with Speaker of the National Assembly over the chaos that ensued within the Parliamentary Chamber this morning. read more

Volume of drug seizures in Irish prisons soars by 42 as over

September 21, 2019

first_img Feb 26th 2018, 9:18 AM Share52 Tweet Email1 Image: Sam Boal via Rolling News THE VOLUME OF drugs, weapons and other contraband discovered in prisons soared last year.There were 1,018 drug seizures in prisons during 2017 – an average of almost three a day – representing a 42% increase on the 715 seizures that were recorded in 2016.The number of weapons that were seized last year also increased by 28% to 557, while the number of contraband mobile phones confiscated by prison officers spiked by 35% to 872 during the same period.The substantial increase in seizures occurred despite the Irish Prison Service (IPS) spending more than €313,000 on systems and equipment designed to tackle smuggling and access to contraband in jails.These systems included the installation of nets over prison exercise yards in response to a number of known attempts to smuggle drugs into jails by throwing them over walls or by flying them in using drones.In June 2014, a quadcopter drone worth around €2,000 crash-landed in the yard of Wheatfield Prison while carrying drugs intended for inmates. Last August, a similar operation was foiled when gardaí found a drone outside the walls of the same prison.Apart from the installation of netting, the IPS declined to provide details of anti-contraband systems and equipment purchased in the past three years, citing security reasons.However, records released under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that a total of €312,989 was spent on such items, excluding VAT, delivery costs and money spent on related staff training.Last year, more than one-third of all drug seizures in Irish jails occurred at Mountjoy Prison (373). The next-highest haul was from inmates at Wheatfield Prison, where 183 seizures were recorded. There were 13 seizures at the Dóchas Centre, which accommodates female prisoners.Mountjoy also accounted for more than a third of all mobile phone seizures in 2017 (334), but only 19% of weapons seizures (56). The institution with the highest numbers of weapons recovered last year was Wheatfield (174), followed by Midlands Prison in Portlaoise (105).“The prevention of access to contraband in prisons remains a high priority for the IPS,” said a spokesperson.“In 2008, the IPS established a dedicated team of officers who have sole responsibility for preventing the flow of contraband into prisons.“The Operational Support Group operates the security-screening areas that are now located at the point of entry of all closed prisons. They also operate the canine unit and the Operational Support Unit, which conducts regular searches and gather intelligence in relation to the smuggling of contraband,” he added.“In addition to the establishment of the OSG, the installation of nets over exercise yards, enhanced CCTV monitoring, stricter control of visits, and the use of targeted and random cell searches on a daily basis have reduced the availability of contraband.“The introduction of passive and active drug-detection dogs and the installation of airport-style security scanners and x-ray machines has also helped efforts to tackle the problem.”Read: ‘It was like an earthquake’: Four people dead after explosion in LeicesterMore: Two-thirds of Deaf community face difficulty accessing public information on their rights By Darragh McDonagh 18 Comments Volume of drug seizures in Irish prisons soars by 42%, as over 1,000 recorded last year 557 weapons were also seized in Irish prisons last year.

Napthine government recognising the value of multicultural media

September 21, 2019

first_imgVictorian Premier Denis Napthine and the Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship Matthew Guy have commended the multicultural media’s role in ensuring all Victorians can access information and feel connected to the community.Attending the October multicultural media conference, Dr Napthine said the purpose of the conferences was to provide multicultural media representatives with access to senior members of the Victorian government, and to provide information on the Victorian Coalition government’s key initiatives, including those specifically relating to multicultural affairs and citizenship.Mr Guy said more than $24.4 million has been allocated to the Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship portfolio in this year’s State Budget.“Multiculturalism is a huge success in this state, it defines us and makes our society stronger. Migrants are coming from a broader range of countries than in the past – meaning Victorians will be speaking a larger number of languages, and practising a wider range of cultures and religions, than ever before,” Mr Guy said.

La caféine serait responsable de troubles du sommeil chez les enfants

September 20, 2019

first_imgLa caféine serait responsable de troubles du sommeil chez les enfantsD’après les résultats d’une étude sur le sujet menée par les chercheurs de l’Université du Nebraska aux Etats-Unis, la caféine consommée par les enfants serait responsable chez ces derniers de troubles du sommeil. Les chercheurs se sont également interrogés sur l’incidence de la caféine concernant l’énurésie, incontinence urinaire.Si les enfants ne consomment généralement pas de café, la caféine est présente dans de nombreux sodas et produits de grignotage. Ainsi, cette substance serait responsable de troubles du sommeil chez les enfants et les chercheurs se sont demandés si elle n’était pas également responsable d’énurésie qui se caractérise par des “pipis au lit” chez les individus de plus de cinq ans. Une étude sur le sujet a été menée dernièrement par l’Université du Nebraska et publiée dans le Journal of Pediatrics. L’étude s’est déroulée de la façon suivante : les chercheurs ont interrogé les parents de plus de 220 enfants âgés de 5 à 12 ans, sur les différentes boissons et snacks que leur progéniture consomme chaque jour.Ainsi, le Dr Warzak a constaté : “Certains enfants âgés de 5 ans consomment chaque jour l’équivalent d’une canette de soda, soit 52 mg de caféine par jour (…). Les enfants âgés de 8 à 12 ans consomment en moyenne 109 mg par jour de caféine”. Cette consommation de caféine aurait des conséquences directes sur la durée et la qualité du sommeil chez les enfants suivant un principe simple : plus la quantité de caféine consommée par les enfants est importante, moins ces derniers dorment. Par contre, concernant l’énurésie chez les enfants, la caféine ne serait pas responsable.Le 24 décembre 2010 à 17:16 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

IRS sounds alarm on tax scams

September 16, 2019

first_imgThe Internal Revenue Service is warning people about tax scams that peak during tax preparation season.“Taxpayers should be on the lookout for tax scams using the IRS name,” said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. “We urge people to protect themselves and use caution when viewing emails, receiving telephone calls or getting advice on tax issues.”The IRS released its “dirty dozen” list of the top 12 most common tax scams:• Identity theft: An identity thief uses someone’s personal information, such as name and Social Security number, to fraudulently file a tax return and claim a refund. Taxpayers who have had their personal information stolen and believe they’re at risk for identity theft should contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit at 800-908-4490, so the agency can secure their tax account.• Telephone scams: Callers may pretend to be from the IRS in hopes of getting personal information from victims. Scammers may say the victims owe money or are entitled to a large refund, or they may threaten the victim. If you know you owe taxes, call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040. Otherwise, report telephone scams to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 1-800-366-4484.• Phishing: An unsolicited email or a fake website may try to lure people into divulging personal information that a criminal can use to commit identity theft. If you get an email that appears to be from the IRS report it to• False promises of free money from inflated tax returns: Scammers commonly pose as tax preparers promising large refunds. They charge a lot of money, and get people to claim fake rebates, benefits or tax credits. The IRS said some victims have reported losing their federal benefits due to false income claims.last_img read more

Overseas money transfer RBI to monitor remittance under LRS

September 5, 2019

first_imgRBI to monitor overseas money transferReuters FileIndividuals who are sending money abroad to face tighter scrutiny starting Thursday (April 12). The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has tightened its regulation norms of Liberalised Remittance Scheme (LRS) under which an individual can transfer up to $2,50,000 (Rs 1.63 crore) abroad a year.”In order to improve monitoring and also to ensure compliance with the LRS limits, it has been decided to put in place a daily reporting system by AD banks of transactions undertaken by individuals under the LRS, which will be accessible to all the other ADs,” RBI said in a statement released Thursday.Now banks in the country will be required to report daily transaction-wise information undertaken by them under the LRS. “Accordingly, from the date of issue of this circular, all AD Category-I banks are required to upload daily transaction-wise information undertaken by them under LRS at the close of business of the next working day. In case no data is to be furnished, AD banks shall upload a ‘Nil’ report,” the central bank added. Sending money from India by an Indian resident or an NRI to people abroad falls under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA). In 2004, the government introduced the LRS with a view to making foreign exchange transactions easy. Initially, the amount limit under the LRS was set at $25,000 a year. As of now, the government allows all residents, including minors, to send up to $250,000 per financial year abroad under the scheme for any permitted capital or current-account transactions. To make the transactions, remitters should have a bank account with an authorized bank. Some banks require the remitter to have a bank account with them for at least one year for conducting the transaction.  The Permanent Account Number or PAN card is also mandatory. Under the scheme, once the remittance is made for an amount up to $250,000 in a financial year, a resident individual cannot make any further remittances.last_img read more

No room for enforced disappearances

first_imgEnforced disappearances should not exist in the 21st century, but reports of the “heinous” crime continue to be received in unacceptably high numbers, two UN experts said on Friday, reports UNB.They stressed that the cases they receive represent only a small percentage of a much worse and gruesome reality.The crime of enforced disappearances is as unacceptable today as it was decades ago when it first came to the attention of the international community, and there are neither reasons nor circumstances that can ever be invoked to justify it, said Suela Janina, chair of the Committee on Enforced Disappearances, and Bernard Duhaime, who chairs the Working Group on enforced or involuntary disappearances.Janina said enforced disappearance is a shameful practice and a crime under international human rights law, whether it is used to repress political dissent, combat organised crime or carried out under the guise of fighting terrorism.Duhaime continued: “The Working Group has witnessed a big increase in so-called ‘short term’ disappearances in a number of countries, particularly in the context of the fight against terrorism.”These disappearances relate to the practice of putting individuals outside the protection of the law for a limited period, during which time they are usually interrogated and often ill-treated or tortured to get forced confessions or ‘evidence’.”The experts told the UN General Assembly in New York there was no time limit, however short, for an enforced disappearance.The two chairs urged the General Assembly to put the fight against enforced disappearances at the very top of its agenda, once and for all, according to a message UNB received from New York on Friday.Duhaime also highlighted the direct link between enforced disappearance and migration, set out in a report by the Working Group, an issue which he described as less visible but no less serious.”We believe that governments and the international community as a whole are not paying adequate attention to this topic,” said Duhaime. “Owing to both its nature and its transnational character, States tend to turn a blind eye to the issue, preferring to transfer the blame elsewhere, be it to another State or to a criminal group.”The enforced disappearance of migrants is a serious issue that needs to be acknowledged and addressed globally.”The experts also reiterated their utmost concern regarding the issue of reprisals.”We continue to note a pattern of threats, intimidation and reprisals against victims of enforced disappearance, including family members, witnesses and human rights defenders working on such cases,” the experts said.The experts concluded by urging all Member States to recognise the goals and objectives of the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance, and echoed the recent call of the High Commissioner for Human Rights to double the number of ratifications in the next five years.There is no valid excuse for States not to ratify the convention, they added.last_img read more

EU Commission says Cyprus hardearned achievements at risk

first_imgThe European Commission said that while structural reforms carried out in recent years have helped Cyprus exit recession, the “weakened” reform momentum undermines the economy’s future growth prospects as pressure to increase spending rises and the reduction of bad loans remains slow.“It is crucial to safeguard and build upon these hard-earned achievements,” the European Commission said in a statement on its website on Friday night, a year after Cyprus completed its adjustment programme. “The increased expenditure pressure should be resisted, allowing for the creation of fiscal space for growth-enhancing public spending”.The statement came hours after a delegation of European Commission technocrats completed its second post programme surveillance mission in liaison with the European Central Bank (ECB) and in coordination with the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The delegation of the former troika was accompanied by officials of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM), which financed the Cypriot bailout with €6.2bn over 2013 to 2016.You May LikeTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoFigLeaf Beta AppFigLeaf brings You 3 Easy Steps to Privacy on Your Terms…FigLeaf Beta AppUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
