Moroccans to Organize One Million March to Honor the Prophet

Taroudante – A group of Moroccan social media users are preparing for a “one million march”  for February 1 in protest of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo’s latest edition, which contains new provocative cartoons about the Prophet Muhammad and Islam in its first issue after the attacks on its headquarters in Paris.The organizing committee reportedly gathered yesterday in Casablanca to make the necessary arrangements so that the rally will be successful.A few days after it was announced, more than seven thousand have expressed their willingness to attend the event. According to the organizers, the rally, which is under the theme “No to mocking the prophet, No to terrorism,” will take place on February 1 at 10:00 am in Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city.The organizers of the event said on their Facebook page that the aim of the march is to confirm that Moroccans denounce terrorism, but at the same time will not accept any mockery of the prophet of Islam.Officially, Morocco denounced the attacks that targeted the Charlie Hebdo headquarters, which killed twelve.At the same time, it banned the latest issue of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo and all publications that have reprinted the provocative cartoons about the Prophet Muhammad and Islam.The majority of social media users applauded Morocco’s refusal to participate in the solidarity march on Sunday in Paris, which was attended by more than 50 world leaders.Photo by Mohamed Mouad© Morocco World News.

An egg a day may keep heart disease away according to new

“The researchers accounted for many dietary and other behaviours in their analyses, but it is important to emphasise that eggs are not eaten in isolation, and overall healthy or unhealthy dietary patterns will always matter.”Victoria Taylor, senior dietitian at the British Heart Foundation, said: “It’s possible that the lower risk of cardiovascular disease seen in those who consumed eggs on a daily basis may have been caused by something else in their diet or lifestyle – rather than a specific cause and effect.”The study was also carried out on a middle-aged Chinese population so the results may not be directly applicable to a UK population.”However, these findings may be reassuring for people who like to ‘go to work on an egg’ and are consistent with current advice in the UK; that eggs can be included as part of a healthy, balanced diet.” The study followed more than 400,000 people in China The results are consistent with current UK advice that eggs can be part of a balanced diet Haemorrhagic strokes, caused by bleeding in and around the brain, are less common than ischaemic strokes, which are the result of a blockage. The group were followed up around nine years later, with daily egg consumption found to be linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease overall.Those who ate up to one a day had a 26% lower risk of haemorrhagic stroke, 28% lower risk of haemorrhagic stroke death and an 18% lower risk of cardiovascular disease death, the study found.There was also a 12% reduction in the risk of ischaemic heart disease, or coronary heart disease, in those consuming an estimated 5.32 eggs a week compared to those eating around two. But they have a higher prevalence rate in China than in high-income countries.”This present study finds that there is an association between moderate level of egg consumption (up to one egg per day) and a lower cardiac event rate,” the authors wrote.”Our findings contribute scientific evidence to the dietary guidelines with regard to egg consumption for the healthy Chinese adult.” The results are consistent with current UK advice that eggs can be part of a balanced diet Professor Nita Forouhi, of the MRC epidemiology unit at the University of Cambridge, said: “The take home message of this research from a large study from China is that at the very least up to one egg a day is not linked with raised cardiovascular risk, and at best up to one egg a day may even have health benefits. The study followed more than 400,000 people in ChinaCredit:AFP Previous studies examining the impact of eggs on health have been inconsistent and most have found insignificant associations between consumption and coronary heart disease or stroke.Commenting on the findings, Tim Chico, professor of cardiovascular medicine at the University of Sheffield, said: “It is very difficult to determine the part any single element of our diet plays in our risk of developing heart disease.”This study has shown that people who eat more eggs have lower rates of a range of diseases including heart attack and stroke.”It is important to stress that this does not prove that eating eggs protects against these diseases, as there may be other differences between the people eating more eggs that cause these differences.” The 1960s advertising slogan, “Go to work on an egg,” may have offered sound dietary advice, according to new research that found an egg a day may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.Consumption of up to one egg daily was linked with lower rates of strokes and heart disease, according to the research published in journal Heart.Daily consumers also had a lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease when compared to those who did not eat eggs.The researchers, from Peking University Health Science Centre, examined data from 416,213 participants in China.At the start of the study, 13.1% of participants reported daily consumption of eggs and 9.1% said they never or rarely ate them.

Sandvik and Nokia team up to offer miners LTE and 5G networks

first_imgSandvik has signed an agreement with Nokia to further develop solutions for private LTE (Long Term Evolution) and 5G technology, continuing its focus on IoT solutions for the mining industry.The Nokia Digital Automation Cloud (NDAC) platform offers pervasive connectivity enabling advanced applications and will initially be implemented and tested in the Sandvik test mine in Tampere, Finland, Sandvik said.“Sandvik’s decades-long work in automation has grown to include robust data analytics and process optimisation offerings, where connectivity and local computing power are crucial. Applications requiring high capacity and low latency are becoming increasingly important,” the company said.“Private LTE networks bring reliable and secure high capacity, low latency and wide coverage mobile broadband to serve mission and business critical industrial connectivity needs and offer a variety of terminals, sensors and other devices,” Sandvik added.The Nokia digital automation platform will operate both underground and in open-pit mines and offers a flexible connectivity platform for testing and developing Sandvik technology, according to Sandvik. “This network enables operation of autonomous vehicles, real-time monitoring of underground and outdoor premises to keep people and equipment safe, remote diagnostics and predictive maintenance, as well as asset management, control and authentication,” the company said.Riku Pulli, Vice President, Automation, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology, said: “Our cooperation with Nokia is another important part of our strategy to develop open, interoperable solutions for future mining needs. Enhanced connectivity is critical for smarter and safer underground operations, and we’re proud to work with Nokia to develop these enhanced connectivity options for our test mine and mining industry going forward.”Stephan Litjens, General Manager, Nokia Digital Automation, said: ”Pairing Sandvik solutions with 5G-ready NDAC architecture has proven to be an excellent match. We are truly motivated to continue collaborating to develop technology that meets the requirements of the often-harsh conditions they operate in – be it moist, hot, cold, and/or dusty.”Sandvik’s Pulli concluded: “Sandvik is a leader in mine automation and digitalisation, and Nokia offers leading technology in wireless connectivity. Together, we create innovative solutions for mining customers.”Recently Agnico Eagle Mines, which is pilot testing automated mining using the Sandvik AutoMine system at its La Ronde Zone 5 mine, confirmed it would install an LTE network at the operation in Quebec, Canada.last_img read more

Businesses are losing 15 billion due to employees playing Angry Birds on

first_imgThe U.S. economy has been struggling for years now, and there are a multitude of reasons for that: the collapse of the U.S. housing bubble, declines in credit availability, and all that mess with the banking system. Oh, and apparently Angry Birds.  According to research people are playing 200 million minutes of Angry Birds a day, which has been calculated to be cost business $1.5 billion in lost wages.We definitely can’t blame the economy on Angry Birds — the game was first released in 2009  at least a year after the economy started to tank. However, it’s interesting to put the numbers in perspective. The Atlantic used the same methodology that has been used in the past to calculate how much money companies lose around Fantasy Football or NCAA tournament time.As it turns out if people are spending 200 million minutes per day playing Angry Birds, that’s 866.7 million hours per year. Also, if 5 percent of those hours are spent playing at work, that’s 43.4 million hours that are spent playing the game while on the clock. The equation used uses $35 as the average hourly pay, and we’re assuming a lot of Angry Birds players don’t make that much, but that adds up to a cool $1.5 billion.Even the author of the post admits that there are some “really big assumptions in this calculation.” One being that five percent of the total number of Angry Bird hours are played during work; and two being the $35 average pay range.If people are indeed spending that much time at work playing Angry Birds, we’d like to counter the notion that this is a bad thing with a recent study we covered showing that taking a breaks during work by surfing the web actually made employees more productive in the long run. So, perhaps taking some time during work to play a level of Angry Birds can have the same positive effect?Read more at The Atlanticlast_img read more

It was a pleasant surprise,” he added.“We need to get the 61-day cooling period over, we need to get tickets on sale, and then the flights will start. So we’re expecting them to start probably the first week in July.“Tickets on sale early in the new year – that’s the good news. The reason there was such a battle is that the legacy airlines and the unions wanted to keep low-cost out of the transatlantic sector, and that’s why we fought so hard to get the licence.So we’re predicting the the fares will be in the €150 one-way mark, including your bag, and we think there will be some lead-in special offers around the €69 mark [return], to get the route primed.“So they’re going to be the lowest fares [for] transatlantic in Ireland, without a doubt.Asked whether it will be a “little cramped in steerage”, MacCarthy said: “I don’t think so, no – it’ll be 186-seater, a Boeing 737 MAX.It is aimed at the budget end of the economy, or of the market, but it will be fine, it will be a brand new aircraft with good service.MacCarthy added that he was hopeful NAI would recruit in Cork, due to the presence of the Atlantic Flight School at Cork Airport. As part of the licence conditions, the airline confirmed it will only recruit in the EU or the US.Transport Minister Shane Ross and business groups on Leeside have welcomed the new routes, which will further buoy passenger figures at Cork Airport, which is operated by the Dublin Airport Authority.Cork Airport is expected to see 8% growth this year compared to 2015.Read: Transatlantic flights from Cork finally get the go-aheadRead: Your crash course in… Norwegian Air’s Irish problem Flights between Cork and the US will start at €65 one-way Norwegian Air International and Wow Air are both expected to start transatlantic flights from Cork to nine US cities in 2017.center_img 44 Comments THE MANAGING DIRECTOR of Cork Airport has said that newly announced flights between Cork Airport and the US will start at €65 one-wayOn Friday, the US Department of Transportation finally granted a transatlantic permit to Norwegian Air International (NAI), ending the logjam over transatlantic flights from Cork.The airline will initially launch a Cork to Boston service in July at the promotional €69 (€65) fare, and also plan a route to New York.Icelandic low-cost airline Wow Air will begin also their transatlantic routes from Cork to nine US cities in May, meanwhile. Wow’s fares – which exclude a bag – begin at €149.99 one-way for flights to New York, Boston and Washginton.Both airlines are have previously signalled their ambition to be the “Ryanair” of transatlantic travel, which may reduce prices across the industry for flights between Europe and the US.Niall MacCarthy, managing diector of Cork Airport, told TheJournal.ie:Low-cost transatlantic travel is coming to Cork and general prices are heading south.MacCarthy added that Norwegian’s licence includes a 61-day cooling off period, which means tickets are not expected to go on sale before February.In a separate statement to TheJournal.ie, Norwegian spokesman Anders Lindstrom said:These are routes that will launch with $69 [€65] fares and have average return fares of $300 to $350 [€326], including taxes.Norwegian’s fares include a bag, Linstrom added.“There’s a 61-day cooling-off period, but we’re extremely confident that at the end of the cooling-off period the licence will be forthcoming,” MacCarthy told RTÉ’s Morning Ireland today.We’re delighted that another low-cost airline, Wow Air, who already have a licence, are committed to flying from Cork to nine north American destinations, starting next May.

Un gigantesque télescope siègera bientôt au sommet dun volcan à Hawaï

first_imgUn gigantesque télescope siègera bientôt au sommet d’un volcan à HawaïLe Conseil d’administration des terres et ressources naturelles de l’État d’Hawaï a donné son accord pour le projet de construction du plus grand télescope du monde au sommet du Mauna Kea, un de ses volcans. Le plus grand télescope du monde siègera bientôt à Hawaï, au sommet du volcan Mauna Kea. C’est ce qu’a annoncé l’Etat dont le Conseil d’administration des terres et ressources naturelles vient tout juste de donner son feu vert malgré la protestation d’une partie de la population pour qui ce projet profane le sommet sacré de la montagne constituant un passage vers le Paradis. Des défenseurs de l’environnement avaient eux aussi demandé l’arrêt du projet, en affirmant que celui-ci nuirait au Nysius wekiuicola, un insecte rare mais le Télescope de Trente Mètres (Thirty Meter Telescope) va finalement bien voir le jour.Toutefois, le Conseil a imposé une vingtaine de conditions, incluant une formation obligatoire, pour les employés, sur la culture hawaïenne et les ressources naturelles. Le Thirty Meter Telescope est censé permettre aux astronomes d’étudier la formation des étoiles et planètes et d’observer celles qui orbitent autour d’étoiles autres que le Soleil. Ajouté à cela, ce télescope aidera les chercheurs à mieux comprendre les origines de l’univers en scrutant à près de 13 milliards d’années-lumière de distance. Il faut dire qu’en prenant place au sommet du Mauna Kea (qui compte déjà une dizaine de télescopes), ce nouveau venu se placera au-dessus des nuages, à 4.200 m d’altitude, et bénéficiera ainsi d’une vue dégagée sur le ciel 300 jours par an. De plus, Hawaï étant relativement isolée au centre du Pacifique, la pollution atmosphérique et lumineuse de ses petites villes ne posera aucun problème, bien au contraire.Une surface d’observation neuf fois supérieure À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreCe projet pharaonique d’environ un milliard de dollars est dirigé par l’Association des universités canadiennes pour la recherche en astronomie (soit 20 institutions à travers le pays dont quatre au Québec), le réseau de l’Université de la Californie et le California Institute of Technology. La Chine, l’Inde et le Japon participent également au projet en tant que partenaires tout comme l’Université d’Hawaï par l’intermédiaire de l’État qui loue ses terres. Grâce à ces partenariats, le futur télescope bénéficiera d’une technologie de pointe.Ainsi, le principal miroir segmenté du télescope, qui fera près de 30 mètres de long, lui permettra de disposer d’une surface d’observation neuf fois supérieure à celle du plus grand télescope optique actuellement en service et d’obtenir des images trois fois plus détaillées, précise l’AP. Toutefois, ce nouveau télescope sera rapidement détrôné par le Très grand télescope européen, dont le miroir devrait mesurer 42 mètres mais dont la construction ne devrait pas s’achever avant 2021.Le 16 avril 2013 à 17:01 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Raul Albiol bullish about Serie A title hopes

No, it’s not over. We knew from the start that Juventus were favourites, they spent a lot of money and bought great players. But it’s too early to say they’ve already won.“We know we have to do a lot to be up there with them, but there’s no use talking we just have to think about winning, starting with Sunday.“If we keep winning then it’s all to play for.”last_img read more

JK Cements and Lafarge among 11 cement companies fined Rs 6700 crore

first_imgThe Competition Commission of India (CCI) on Wednesday, Aug. 31, in two separate orders, fined 11 cement-manufacturing companies and the Cement Manufacturers’ Association (CMA) a total of more than Rs. 6,700 crore on charges that they had resorted to cartelisation.The order is expected to bring some cheer to the builder community, but the stocks of the companies that have been fined are bound to go down when the markets open for trading on Thursday. The order is also expected to impact prices of new homes, should the cement companies keep cement prices competitive and construction firms pass on the benefits of these lower cement prices to their buyers.The CCI, in a statement, said on Wednesday that according to one of its orders the following 10 companies have been fined around Rs. 6,300 crore for cartelisation: ACC was fined Rs. 1,147.59 crore, ACL Rs. 1,163.91 crore, Binani Rs. 167.32 crore, Century Rs. 274.02 crore, India Cements Rs. 187.48 crore, JK Cements Rs. 128.54 crore, Lafarge Rs. 490.01 crore, Ramco Rs. 258.63 crore, UltraTech Rs. 1,175.49 crore and Jaiprakash Associates Limited Rs. 1,323.60 crore.The statement said the CCI had also fined the CMA Rs. 73 lakh as part of this order. It had also imposed a penalty of Rs. 397.51 crore on Shree Cement Limited as per a separate order.The CCI order comes in light of a complaint filed by the Builders Association of India under Section 19(1)(a) of the Competition Act, 2002. In it, the CCI noted that not only had the CMA and the cement companies violated the act, but also that the companies used the platform that the CMA provided to share details “relating to prices, capacity utilisation, production and dispatch” of cement, thus restricting “production and supplies in the market, contravening the provisions of Section 3(1) read with Section 3(3)(b) of the Act.”The order also said the CCI “found the cement companies to be acting in concert in fixing prices of cement” — the very definition of cartelisation — “in contravention of the provisions of Section 3(1) read with Section 3(3)(a) of the Act.”The competition watchdog has also ordered the CMA and the cement companies to “cease and desist” from taking part in “any activity relating to agreement, understanding or arrangement on prices, production and supply of cement in the market.” It has also asked the CMA to stop collecting wholesale and retail prices through cement companies that are members of it, or from other sources.last_img read more

Brooklyn NineNine at SDCC We Can Bleep Blur on NBC

first_imgThe crime-fighting, wise-cracking team of Brooklyn’s 99th police precinct attended their first San Diego Comic Con this week.Dan Goor, creator and showrunner of cult comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, was joined by his stellar cast (sans Captain Holt Andre Braugher) to reminisce about their time on FOX, and tease a new beginning with NBC.Since its debut on in 2013, the single-camera sitcom has received critical acclaim for lead actors Andy Samberg (Jake Peralta) and Braugher, as well as its uncanny ability to blend serious issues with humor.Not to mention the almost religious fan following the ensemble show has accrued over five years.So it’s no surprise that when FOX canceled the series in May, it sparked outrage among the public—garnering responses from celebrities like Lin Manuel Miranda and Mark Hamill, who took to social media to share their horror at the erroneous decision.Enter savior NBC, which, 31 hours later, picked up the show for a 13-episode sixth season. “Do you see there’s so many people that LOVE our show?” – @melissafumero on the support for #Brooklyn99 Season 6. #SDCC— Brooklyn Nine-Nine (@nbcbrooklyn99) July 20, 2018As a B99 newbie (I watched a few episodes when it first aired, but got distracted for five years and only recently returned to catch up on Netflix), I know I have a lot yet to discover—spoilers be damned.(Also, spoilers ahead.)As reported by The Nerd Daily, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine Comic Con panel reflected upon previous seasons and storylines—most notably, the recent coming-out of Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz) as bisexual.“Dan is a person who believes in equality and inclusivity, and that shows in his writers’ room,” Beatriz said of her boss. “He wanted a bisexual person’s voice to be heard in that storyline, and it just so happened that the person who’s playing the character they wanted to turn bi is also bi. It was a gift, and I think we did it in an amazing way.”In an age when people openly throw shade at a bigoted US president and clapback at beauty brands’ lack of diverse products, B99‘s mixed-bag cast—Latinex, LGBTQIA, people of color, hilarious women—fits right in.And when the show does feature a member of a marginalized community, the writers “do not want to make a joke of it,” according to Samberg, “and give it proper respect.” A special message from the 99th precinct. #Brooklyn99 pic.twitter.com/NDdhSDY6fY— Brooklyn Nine-Nine (@nbcbrooklyn99) July 20, 2018Fans old and new can expect the same level of inclusion moving forward—possibly with some added cheek (literal and figurative).“We can bleep, and we can blur,” Samberg said of the seemingly more lax censorship standards at NBC.Five weeks into pre-production, Goor & Co. dropped some hints about what’s to come, including Jake and Amy adapting to life as newlyweds, and the promise of an episode devoted to past-their-prime detectives Hitchcock and Scully.The next series is set to return in 2019.

Soulful Rendition at Tihar Jail

first_imgThe atmosphere and setting would not be seen as being conducive to cultural expression and appreciation. Yet, against the grim walls of Tihar Jail, an evening of soulful music and ethereal dance took the inmates to a more sublime plane for some hours on Wednesday evening in an endeavour, promoted by Legends of India, aiming at gradual reformation and rehabilitation of  people who have chosen a life of crime. This is the first time Sangeet Natak Akademi has joined hands with Legends of India to make their initiative a permanent feature.Sonam Kalra, the present day Sufi Queen, unfolded the Gospel of Sufi where many inmates swayed their heads and tapped their feet while some sat still — heads bowed and eyes shut—in deep thought, as if deciphering what lies ahead as the soulful melody of the great Baba Bulleh Shah in Sonam’s voice that reverberated in the air.   Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Her accompanying artists too enthralled the audience with the  instrumental jugalbandi, which was the lime-light of the show. The inmates enthusiastically applauded with every beat of the instrument, enjoyed it thoroughly and some even started dancing with the flow of the Sufi. “They are inmates but were good audience, I must say. Everyone commits mistakes in life irrespective of who is behind the bars and who isn’t. But the reaction of the prisoners has confirmed that music will play the role of catalyst in their transformation” Sonam said while minimizing their show.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe second part of the event was presented by Rachna Yadav, a Kathak dancer along with her group including four accompanying dancers. With energetic performances by the dancers and melodious composition by her team the prisoners were surprised and felt lucky to be a part of this event. Director General Alok Kumar Verma, who has played a pivotal role in accepting the concept of rehabilitation by Legends of India, said that “music affects the minds of the inmates and calms them. The pain of being away from their loved ones is traumatizing. We want to soothe their nerves, calm them”.last_img read more

Transitioning From Offline to Online Selling

first_img 3 min read You’re already a success in your brick-and-mortarbusiness–you have a loyal following for your product–but mightthere be room for some online growth in your business? In otherwords, could eBay be the answer to expanding your offline businessinto the online world? Absolutely, according to Jay Fiore, seniormanager of eBay Business Marketing. He cites many examples ofbrick-and-mortar entrepreneurs building their businesses with aneBay component. Entrepreneurs might sell refurbished or used itemsonline, or even try to sell slow-moving inventory on eBay.The first step for any entrepreneur, says Fiore, is tofamiliarize yourself with the workings of eBay. “Simply get toknow the marketplace. Go to www.ebay.com, register, buy something and sellanything–it doesn’t matter what,” says Fiore. “Get asense of what the buy-side and sell-side experiences are.”Also, spend as much time as you can browsing the myriad sellerresources on the site, including Seller Central and the newMerchant eCommerce Solutions Center. Even though you know yourexisting product and business well, you should treat your new eBayexpansion as a new business and research everything from how muchitems like yours are selling for to the mechanics of a successfullisting. Fiore especially suggests looking through historicallistings. Search for “Completed Listings” to get an ideaof what types of listings reap the most success.Once you have the eBay basics down, decide what you’re goingto sell. Creativity can help with your product sourcing–it workedfor the eBay seller who lists trade-in jewelry from his offlinejewelry store. And while you can always sell used, slow-moving orsurplus products from your offline store on eBay, you can find newproduct sources as you grow. “One of our larger sellers beganby selling used restaurant equipment,” says Fiore. “As helooked for ways to expand his business, he found offshoremanufacturers who were eager to find a seller to introduce them tothe U.S. market.”Be aware, however, of how different selling on eBay can be fromoffline selling, notes Fiore. Be prepared to offer excellentcustomer service (answering e-mail questions promptly, for example)and top-notch descriptions of your products (definitely longer andmore in-depth than a classified ad in a newspaper, for instance).”Many businesses that look to adopt eBay as a channeldon’t take the time to research average selling prices fortheir items,” Fiore warns. “For example, to be successfulwith auction-style listings, you often need to start the biddingsignificantly lower than what you’d expect the final price tobe. But many businesses are unwilling to trust the market andconsequently set start prices too high to be compelling to mosteBay buyers.”Still not sure your product will sell on eBay? Check outhttp://pages.ebay.com/sellercentral/whatshot.html forinformation about what’s hot and what’s being merchandisedat any given time by eBay. “[eBay] also offers listings ofcategories and products where bid-to-item ratios are high anddemand is outpacing supply,” says Fiore. “We also publishinformation on top searches and most-watched items.”Now, armed with all that knowledge, check out your stockroom forproducts, and go forth and sell.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.
