Morocco, a partner for Russian investors to conquer African markets

Moscow – Morocco proposes to be a partner for Russian investors wishing to conquer the African market, said on Tuesday chairwoman of the Moroccan enterprise association (CGEM), Miriem Bensalah Chaqroun.Due to its strategic location, Morocco is a link between Europe and Africa and has all it takes to become a partner of Russian investors wishing to conquer the African continent, she told the Moroccan-Russian economic forum.After recalling that Morocco has concluded over 30 free-trade agreements, including with the European Union, the USA and Turkey, she recommended joint investments between Moroccan and Russian economic operators. She also insisted that it is high time to lend some added-value to trade between the two countries, noting that Morocco has drafted work plans for the promotion of several sectors and stands ready to sell its food-industry, fish, and high-quality manufactured products.Trade between the two countries went up from 1.5 billion Dollars in 2010 to 2.5 billion dollars in 2013, posting a 33pc increase, she said recalling that the number of Russian tourists to Morocco increased by 60pc between 2012 and 2013 after the opening of a direct air line between Casablanca and Moscow. read more

Scandinavian Airlines strike in 4th day, affecting thousands

COPENHAGEN — A strike among pilots at Scandinavian Airlines has entered its fourth day with the carrier being forced to cancel 1,213 flights Monday and Tuesday, affecting some 110,000 passengers.The flag carrier of Denmark, Norway and Sweden says more than 170,000 passengers have been affected since the open-ended strike started Friday. The strike began after the collapse of pay negotiations with the SAS Pilot Group, which represents 95% of the company’s pilots in the three countries.There is no sign of when talks might resume on a new collective bargaining agreement.Jacob Pedersen, an analyst with Denmark’s Sydbank, says the pilots want their share of company earnings after the carrier posted a profit in the past four years following a cost saving program that started in 2012.The Associated Press read more

4 former Ohio State football players set for Super Bowl XLVII

Four former Ohio State football players will be playing in Super Bowl XLVII Sunday, and they all happen to be playing for San Francisco. The 49ers, which are set to square off against the Baltimore Ravens at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, will feature some familiar names from Buckeye Nation: former OSU offensive lineman Alex Boone, wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr., linebacker Larry Grant and safety Donte Whitner. Alex Boone (2005-2008) Boone, who went undrafted in the 2009 NFL draft but got picked up for the 2010 season, has been with the 49ers his entire career. The Lakewood, Ohio, native started all four of his years in Columbus and played in the 2007 and 2008 BCS National Championships. As a 49er, he was a pro bowl alternate last season. Tedd Ginn Jr. (2004-06) Arguably, Ginn Jr. was one of the most exciting Buckeyes to watch in the Jim Tressel era. A Cleveland, Ohio, native, Ginn also returned kickoffs and punts for touchdowns. He even returned the opening kickoff in the 2007 BCS National Championship against Urban Meyer’s Florida Gators. Ginn was the ninth overall pick in the 2007 draft by the Miami Dolphins and was traded to the 49ers for a fifth round draft pick in 2010. Larry Grant (2006-07) Grant, who originally attended City College of San Francisco, transferred to OSU in 2006 before becoming a full-time starter in 2007. Grant, who like Boone appeared in back-to-back national championship games for OSU, was drafted in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the 49ers before being traded to the St. Louis Rams. In 2011, Grant re-signed with the 49ers and has been with them ever since. Donte Whitner (2003-05) Whitner, another Clevelander, has played every level of football on the same team as Ted Ginn Jr., including stints at Glenville High School and OSU. As a Buckeye, Whitner was first-team All-Big Ten in 2005 and was drafted eighth overall in the 2006 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills. After playing four seasons in Buffalo, he signed a three-year contract with 49ers. Whitner was named to the Pro Bowl last season. read more

Racist bullying could be responsible for black students receiving lower grades equalities

Rufaro Chisango, a fellow first year student at the university, posted a minute-long video on Twitter which included male voices chanting “we hate the blacks” and “blacks and whites will never be together” outside her bedroom door. The university was accused of failing to act swiftly when the racist jeers were first reported, but Miss Chisango filmed the incident and it went viral.Separately, the University of Warwick expelled three students in June and banned them from campus after their involvement in an online chat where they made racist jokes. David Isaac, chairman of the EHRC, said: “Racial harassment of any kind is abhorrent, divisive and entirely unacceptable.”There’s no place for it in society and the level that we have seen occurring within universities is particularly concerning, especially when it has a detrimental impact on student attainment and leaves staff feeling ridiculed or undermined.”Everyone must have the opportunity to reach their potential through education. Universities must have systems in place to stop racial harassment being a stumbling block to educational achievement and ensure that victims can obtain redress.”The commission will publish its findings and recommendations by autumn 2019. Rufaro Chisango posted a minute-long video on Twitter of the racial jeers Earlier this year, a first year law student at Nottingham Trent University pleaded guilty to racially or religiously aggravated harassment after racist chants that left a black woman so scared that she moved out of the halls of residence.   Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Racist bullying could be responsible for black students receiving lower grades, the Equalities and Human Rights Commission has said as it launches an inquiry into racial harassment at universities.The UK’s equalities body said that despite more students from black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds taking up places at university in recent years, they are graduating with worse degrees than their white peers. Black students are also more likely to drop out of university than their classmates.The EHRC said there is a link between “being made to feel unwelcome and attainment” which may contribute to the “lower qualifications achieved by ethnic minority students despite more entering higher education”.It launched the inquiry after both academic staff and students raised concerns about the levels of racial aggression on campus. –– ADVERTISEMENT ––“Universities and representative bodies have raised concerns that racial harassment is affecting both staff and students at British universities, which may impact on staff members’ decision to remain with their employers,” the EHRC said.“Some student representatives have also suggested that universities are brushing incidents under the carpet unless they go viral on social media.” Rufaro Chisango posted a minute-long video on Twitter of the racial jeers read more

Leau du robinet pas si bonne que ça

first_imgL’eau du robinet pas si bonne que çaFrance – Ce soir, France 3 diffusera “Du poison dans l’eau du robinet”, un documentaire mettant en lumière les différentes pollutions contenues dans l’eau du robinet, laquelle est consommée quotidiennement par de nombreux Français.Réalisé par la journaliste Sophie Le Gall, le documentaire nous fait part des nombreuses substances toxiques contenues dans l’eau du robinet. Entre autres : de l’aluminium, du radon, des nitrates, des pesticides ainsi que des résidus de médicaments.De nombreuses molécules médicamenteuses sont présentes dans l’eau du robinet de plusieurs régions de France : antidépresseurs, aspirine, neuroleptiques et plus particulièrement, traces de pilules contraceptives. Ces dernières ont entraîné la féminisation de certains poissons, notamment celle d’un chevesne dans la Seine : un ovaire s’était développé sur l’un des testicules de l’animal.Certaines eaux contiennent également du radon, un gaz radioactif. Il peut entraîner des mutations de l’ADN ainsi que des maladies des reins et du foie. Sont aussi fréquemment décelés des traces de pesticides et d’aluminium ainsi que des nitrates, en quantités nettement supérieures aux recommandations de l’OMS. Les consommateurs encourent un risque accru de développer la maladie de Parkinson et des cancers à cause des pesticides et des nitrates, l’aluminium risquant quant à lui d’augmenter les chances de contracter la maladie d’Alzheimer.Le 17 mai 2010 à 17:32 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

JO de Londres les jeux les plus écolos de lhistoire

first_imgJO de Londres : les jeux les plus écolos de l’histoire ?Pour les Jeux olympiques 2012, Londres fait le pari de réaliser les JO “les plus verts jamais organisés”. Toutefois ce ne sera que bien après la fin de la compétition qu’on saura si le pari a pu être tenu.Plus beau, plus grand, plus “propre”: tous les JO font la même promesse ! Toutefois, la chose n’est pas si évidente quand des tonnes de bétons, de déchets et des kilomètres de route doivent être mis en place. Car le parc olympique, à Londres, a été construit sur une ancienne zone industrielle défavorisée de l’est de la capitale. Comme le souligne John Sauven, directeur exécutif de Greenpeace au Royaume-Uni, “des jeux verts, c’est légèrement contradictoire”. En effet, “vous faites venir pour un week-end ou une quinzaine de jours des masses de gens, qui prennent l’avion en consommant un maximum d’énergie et repartent de la même façon : difficile d’appeler cela du développement durable”. Néanmoins, les JO de Londres ne s’en tirent pas si mal, selon lui. “Ces jeux ont l’avantage d’avoir conduit une rénovation massive d’un site industriel très pollué, et de l’intégrer par la suite dans le tissu urbain, à l’inverse de ce qui s’est fait à Athènes, où beaucoup d’installations sont devenues des ruines à l’abandon”, précise t-il cité par l’AFP. Les habitants de quartiers défavorisés vont ainsi hériter de transports modernisés, de logements abordables (48% des restes du village olympique), d’un centre commercial, d’une piscine et d’un parc de la superficie de Hyde Park. La rivière Lee a été nettoyée et 33 ponts et passages ont été bâtis. “Le parcours de la vallée de la Lee était un endroit sale, et c’est devenu un refuge de biodiversité”, souligne Kathryn Firth, de la “London Legacy Development Corporation”, l’organisme chargé de gérer l'”après-Jeux”.Un budget carbone total loin d’être négligeable À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Il semblerait que “dès le départ, le développement durable a été pris en compte”, comme l’explique David Stubbs, en charge du dossier chez l’organisateur des jeux, Locog. Ainsi, 2 millions de tonnes de sols pollués ont été nettoyés et réutilisés sur place, afin d’éviter des transports coûteux en énergie. De plus, la construction a privilégié des matériaux au faible contenu en carbone, avec pour objectif de réduire de moitié les émissions de CO2. Enfin, l’eau de pluie est réutilisée.Si ces efforts conviennent à Greenpeace et aux Amis de la Terre, ceux-ci déplorent “des occasions manquées”, comme l’abandon d’un projet d’éolienne sur le site. Au bout du compte, le “budget carbone” total pour les JO est loin d’être négligeable. “On peut encore améliorer les choses. Ce genre d’événements devrait être neutre en émission de gaz à effet de serre”, a d’ailleurs estimé Achim Steiner, directeur du Programme des Nations unies pour l’environnement (PNUE).Le 15 mai 2012 à 11:39 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Alvaro Morata set goal target for the season

first_imgAlvaro Morata has set a target of 30 goals for Chelsea this season as he hopes to fire them to glory on all fronts.Morata had a turbulent debut season after making the switch from Real Madrid in what most Chelsea fans believed was a shrewd acquisition in the transfer market.The Spaniard experienced mixed fortunes in his first spell at the club as he experienced both a good and barren spell for the Londoners.His performance led to the Blues fans calling for his exit from the Club. And Italian side AC Milan almost captured the former Los Blancos player.However, Morata remained in the capital and was back on the scoresheet in Saturday’s 3-2 win over Arsenal.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.Now after getting off the mark for the new campaign, the striker believes he will continue to find the net in Maurizio Sarri’s system after blaming Antonio Conte’s “direct” style for his struggles last term.“I think for me the most important thing is the mode we play,” the striker told Chelsea’s official website. “Last year it was direct, I had to protect the ball in the air and that’s not my best quality.“Now I can attack the spaces, play one-touch and go into the area for the crosses which is better for me.“The manager works with the ball always, and when you work with the ball you have more chances, and the strikers have more chances, but that’s not the most important thing.“For sure I want to score more than 30 goals, but I would prefer to score 15 or 20 and for us to win the Premier League or another big trophy.last_img read more

First responders describe finding Stoneman Douglas High shooting suspect

first_imgPARKLAND, FLA. (WSVN) – Two first responders to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting addressed the media for the first time, including one who describes the moments he first encountered the accused shooter.Coconut Creek officer Michael Leonard was the first police officer to make contact with 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, who is now locked up awaiting trial for killing 17 people in Wednesday’s shooting.Leonard said once he learned the shooter was at large, he expanded his search and traveled down a back road.“As I continued down this roadway, I discovered an individual walking along the sidewalk that was wearing the clothing description given over the radio,” said Leonard. “He looked like a typical high school student.”Leonard added that he questioned whether this was the shooter in question.“For a quick moment, I thought, ‘Could this be the person? Is this who I need to stop?’” said Leonard. “Training kicked in, I pulled my vehicle over immediately, engaged the suspect, and he complied with my commands.”The shooter was taken into custody without any issues, the officer said. Another first responder, Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department Chief Frank Babinec, said they received an active shooter call just before 2:30 p.m.“As we started our response, we really weren’t sure if this was a real event or not,” said Babinec. “We get calls like this once in a while, and they turn out to be non-real calls, which is a good thing.”Babinec said more information quickly poured in after the initial call, which left him and his crew without a doubt that this was a real situation.“As we got to the scene, we had to set up an appropriate command post and triage area to deal with the possible patients we were going to have,” Babinec said.Babinec said that this event was horrible, but he is proud of all the first responders.“Our first responders can never unsee what they saw yesterday,” said Babinec. “We will work with them to make sure they get the resources they need to get through this as part of the community.”Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Baylor Wont Say Which Coaches Are To Blame For Its Sexual Assault

first_imgKamys Cotera for The Texas TribuneThe inside of McLane Stadium at Baylor University MarjorieA bid to better their football team’s offense put University of Houston officials on the defensive this past week.It’s a posture several schools have had to adopt in recent years after announcing they’d hired coaching staff – like UH’s new offensive coordinator Kendal Briles and offensive line coach Randy Clements – who had worked at Baylor University and departed under the cloud of a sexual assault scandal.Those universities, like UH, have been quick to offer assurances that their hires were carefully vetted, including through conversations with Baylor officials. But their attempts to set minds at ease have been hampered by one major issue: While Baylor has blamed “athletics and football personnel” for much of the scandal, it has never revealed publicly who specifically did what wrong. That stance has frustrated lawmakers, activists and other people at the coaches’ old and new schools, and has prompted calls for more transparency from the private Waco university. Baylor should “have come forward a long time ago and been very transparent about everything,” said Brenda Tracy, a rape survivor and activist who has spoken about sexual violence with several college football teams. “It feels like people are … trying to move on from what happened at Baylor, and we don’t even know everything that happened there.”  A Baylor spokesman, Jason Cook, said the school shares limited information about the case with third parties due to ongoing litigation and attorney-client privilege. He noted that Baylor, as a private institution, is “not afforded the statutory protections that public universities have.”He said the school tells potential employers details about the scandal that are already public – namely, what’s included in court filings and in a vague 13-page report released by the school’s board of regents. “It’s the responsibility of the hiring institution to thoroughly vet its hires,” Cook said.The Tribune asked Cook if Baylor thought keeping the names of perpetrators private could cast an unfair pall over those innocent of misconduct.The Tribune also asked if this secrecy denied other schools of crucial information about a potential hire’s conduct on a previous job.And the Tribune posed a hypothetical, asking if Baylor would share information about a former coach — whose actions they knew had been flagged as problematic in the university’s review – with a school interested in bringing that coach onto its campus.Cook responded to all three questions by saying: “Baylor stands behind the personnel decisions that have been made.”Scandal at BaylorThe trouble at Baylor began in 2015, when a football player was convicted of raping a member of the women’s soccer team. Testimony in the player’s trial revealed Baylor had investigated the allegations but did not take punitive action – and his case unleashed a torrent of similar claims from female students whose reports of being sexually assaulted were met with little support from Baylor. (His conviction was later overturned, and the case is currently pending on appeal.)University regents told the Wall Street Journal that 19 of the school’s football players had been accused of sexual assault or domestic violence between 2011 and 2016, including four allegations of gang rapes. A lawsuit filed after that report alleged the actual number of players involved in wrongdoing was much higher. In 2015, Baylor retained an outside law firm, Pepper Hamilton, to investigate. The firm briefed the university’s board of regents on its findings the next year but produced no written report. Once the review was finished, Baylor fired its head football coach, Art Briles, who is Kendal Briles’ father. And it released its own “Findings of Fact” document describing how Pepper Hamilton had concluded that the university responded inadequately to sexual misconduct cases.Without naming names, the report said “some football coaches and staff” improperly diverted misconduct cases from normal university processes and conducted “their own untrained internal inquiries” that “discredited complainants and denied them the right to a fair, impartial and informed investigation.”Baylor’s report said some administrators had “directly discouraged” complainants from reporting and that coaches had met with people who made allegations against football players but then did not pass that information on to administrators outside the athletics department.The informal system of discipline that existed within the football program, the report said, involved “multiple coaches and administrators.”There were 22 football coaches and support staff – including Art Briles – on Baylor’s roster for 2015, though allegations in the report are not confined to that year. The number of coaches and staff are similar in the three years prior.Coaching positions elsewhereSince his firing, Art Briles has been unable to find new coaching work. A speaking appearance he was scheduled to make at a coaches convention was canceled this week due to “concerns.” But other members of his staff, including his son, have moved on to positions elsewhere. The appointments have, at times, provoked backlash and drawn assurances from college officials that the hires’ backgrounds were scrutinized:The University of Texas at Austin’s head coach, Tom Herman, was put on the defensive last year over the hiring of Casey Horny, a former member of the Baylor football staff who had supported Art Briles on Twitter after his firing. Herman said at the time that Horny “was vetted very rigorously through the athletic department and also myself and my relationship with him.” UT-Austin’s athletics director at the time, Mike Perrin, said in a statement last January that he “spoke at length with Coach Horny and reviewed his background and his role at previous universities” before approving the hire. “Coach Horny committed to Coach Herman and me that he is in total alignment with our culture of integrity at The University of Texas.”Similar steps were taken at Arizona State University, which hired another former Baylor coach about a year ago. ASU also received a letter of recommendation from Baylor’s athletic director in support of the former Baylor defensive coordinator, Phil Bennett, according to AZ Central.And when Kendal Briles was hired by Florida Atlantic University – a coaching position he held between leaving Baylor and being hired by UH – university president John Kelly told the Sun Sentinel that officials had vetted Kendal Briles through the NCAA, Baylor and several of its own school officials, including its athletic director. “We didn’t find anything that we would be concerned about at that time,” Kelly said. Clements also held a coaching position between leaving Baylor and arriving at UH, at Southeastern University.The NCAA did not respond to a request for comment.Vetting went beyond “normal protocol”UH did not receive letters of recommendation from Baylor for Clements or Briles, UH spokesman Mike Rosen told the Tribune. But he said both coaches received “verbal recommendations” and were vetted through processes that went beyond “normal protocol.”“The candidates both agreed to an interview with our Vice President for Legal Affairs/General Counsel, who has extensive experience in handling Title IX matters and supervised our Title IX office for almost 15 years,” Rosen wrote in an e-mail to the Tribune. “The interview included discussions specifically about Title IX compliance,” which is not typical.Rosen said the school’s athletic director also “made several calls to former colleagues of the candidates,” and that the athletics’ compliance officer “made additional inquiries to the NCAA and former schools where the candidates worked, including Baylor.” He said it is not typical for the athletic director “to be involved in hires at this level.”When asked if UH asked Baylor whether the two hires were responsible for the misconduct mentioned in the “Findings of Fact” document – and whether or not Baylor provided an answer – Rosen said the school was “not going to characterize the conversations with specific universities.”He said, “The university did its due diligence and was satisfied with the results.”Tracy, the survivor and activist, said UH’s hiring decision “sends the wrong message.” She said she spoke with UH’s football program last year and that it felt “kind of like a punch in the gut, when I read which school it was” that had made the hires. Both Kendal Briles’ and Clements’ memorandums of understanding with UH contain a morality clause that says the coaches can be fired if new information about their conduct at Baylor surfaces, according to the Houston Chronicle. But “merely having been on staff at Baylor and performing [their] job duties while allegations of misconduct were made” is not alone grounds for termination, the clause reads, in part.Cook, the Baylor spokesman, deferred questions about how Clements and Kendal Briles were vetted to UH. But he said Baylor is “not aware of any non-public information from the Pepper Hamilton investigation being discussed with representatives of [UH].”He said Baylor has not authorized the attorneys who worked on the Pepper Hamilton report to give “work product from their investigation to any third parties.”And he said Baylor is not aware of any potential employer contacting the attorneys, who are now at the firm Cozen O’Connor.He did, however, confirm that the school knows which former coaches’ actions had been flagged as problematic in Baylor’s own report.  Sharelast_img read more

Inspections uncover slight anomalies Qantas boss

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: G.A Following Qantas’ three mid-air emergencies last week, extensive checks of the engines of Qantas’s grounded A380 fleet have revealed “some issues”, Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce has said.Speaking to ABC radio, Mr Joyce has admitted that checks over the weekend on the A380 engines showed problems with three of the engines, problems “that we are investigating further.”My Joyce advised that “slight anomalies: oil where it shouldn’t be” was found on the engines and that Qantas is currently looking into the cause of this.“These are new engines on new aircraft and they shouldn’t have these issues at this stage and so it has given us an indication of an area for us to focus into,” he said, reported the ABC.“Our top priority is making sure that we have the continued safe operation of the aircraft and if this takes a bit longer, it will take longer and we are going to give it as much time as possible to ensure that we are comfortable with the safe operation of the aircraft.”According to the ABC, Mr Joyce emphatically denied maintenance was an issue, instead speculating that Rolls Royce engine design or materials could be the cause of last week’s QF32’s engine explosion.As the only carrier who has grounded aircraft, Mr Joyce said Qantas “will leave [our A380s] on the ground as long as it takes in order for us to ensure that the operation is safe.”Qantas are set to advise the Australian Stock Exchange of its losses caused by these events soon, but Mr Joyce has said these are not on par with the losses caused by the Icelandic volcanic disruptions.last_img read more

first_imgLabour Minister Zeta Emilianidou has promised to look into extending benefits to war combatants from 1974, after complaints that the honorary allowance is too low and does not cover all people who think they should be eligible.The honorary allowance to combatants and prisoners of war was instituted a year ago.The amount is considered too low, and it’s been proposed that it be replaced by a minimum of €20.The amount of the honorary allowance depends on a person’s pension: the higher the pension, the lower the allowance.In parliament, a group representing 1974 combatants proposed that the benefit be decoupled from the pension.Another issue is that eligibility for the honorary allowance is currently limited to persons receiving a statutory pension. By contrast, individuals who are on welfare are not entitled to, and do not receive, the honorary allowance; there are about 500 persons who fall into this category.Also not receiving this allowance are Cypriots who served a longer stint in the military because of the events of 1974 and who are currently living overseas and are not eligible for a Cypriot statutory pension. These individuals should not be discriminated against, MPs said.Currently, about 12,400 people are eligible for the wartime honorary allowance. The total annual cost of the benefit is €6.12 million.Also on Tuesday the House labour committee discussed legislation to establish a single labour inspection agency tasked with monitoring and cracking down on undeclared work.The government has re-submitted an amended bill, after a previous bill fell by the wayside.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
