Two Young Girls Abducted via Facebook Found Captive in Casablanca

first_imgCasablanca- Two teenage girls who went missing in Marrakech were recently found captivein a house in Casablanca, according to daily Assabah.After four days of investigation, Hay Hassani police in Casablanca finally found the two girls, who had been abducted in Marrakech, held captive in a house in Casablanca.According to daily Assabah’s Wednesday issue, it was thanks to the father of one of the victims that both girls were eventually found. The father had checked his daughter’s Facebook page and posts to discover that his daughter had been communicating online with individuals from Casablanca.  The father found that the suspects had persuaded his daughter to leave her home in Marrakech and join them in Casablanca, according to the same source. The girl’s father subsequently lodged a complaint against the suspects, and the police then opened an investigation.  Less than 24 hours later, the police had arrested one of the people the girls had been chatting with on Facebook. The suspect subsequently led the police to where the girls were being held captive.  The investigation is far from being over, however.  The police suspect the existence of a larger criminal network, specializing in child abduction.© Morocco World News.

New Brunswick looks to hydrogen from seawater as fuel for future power

FREDERICTON — New Brunswick’s Crown-owned power utility is partnering with a Florida-based company to develop power plants that would use hydrogen extracted from seawater as their fuel.NB Power signed a licence agreement with Joi Scientific three years ago, but have now agreed to work together to build a number of prototypes that would eventually be used in the province.Traver Kennedy, CEO of Joi Scientific, says his company has developed a new way to extract hydrogen from unprocessed seawater.He says when used as a fuel to generate power, the only emissions are water vapour.NB Power president Gaetan Thomas says it could be two or three years before they would have small prototypes ready, and the cost would be about the same as a natural gas-fired plant.The costs of the technology and the licence agreement are being kept confidential.Thomas says the utility is looking at all its options, but it might make more sense to have numerous small facilities around the province rather that a large generator, in order to avoid transmission loss.The Canadian Press read more

In East Darfur UN refugee chief urges international support for Sudan

“Sudan’s generosity must be matched with international solidarity and resources. Much more donor support is required – and urgently – so that we can help the hundreds of thousands of refugees in the country and the communities that are hosting them,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, said yesterday wrapping up his first visit as the head of UNHCR to Sudan.The UN refugee chief also reiterated his call on the international community to do much more to end the fighting in South Sudan, which is causing the world’s fastest growing forced displacement tragedy, without an immediate end in sight. “Parties to the conflict, regional states and the international community need to put an end to this tragedy,” he said.During the visit this week, Mr. Grandi met with South Sudanese refugees and their local hosts at the Al-Nimir refugee camp in East Darfur, Sudan.“My coming here has one reason – just as I did in Uganda, Ethiopia and from Juba itself, to appeal to the leadership of South Sudan, to the opposition of South Sudan, to the States in the region and to the international community at large, to inject some sense of urgency in the quest of peace in South Sudan itself,” Mr. Grandi said.The High Commissioners met with Sudan’s President, Omar al-Bashir, and, according to a UNHCR press release, welcomed the President’s assurances that Sudan will continue providing safety to those fleeing conflict and persecution – including those who arrive from South Sudan, and other countries in the region.Sudan has hosted over 416,000 South Sudanese refugees since 2013, including some 170,000 new arrivals in 2017, making it one of the largest refugee-receiving countries in the region, UNHCR reported.Hundreds of thousands of other South Sudanese who stayed in Sudan following the separation of the two countries are also in need of humanitarian assistance. Sudan also continues to host refugees from Eritrea, Syria, Yemen, Chad and other countries. read more

Nokia workers walk out in protest after Microsoft news

first_imgAfter the announcement of the partnership between Nokia and Microsoft this morning workers voiced their concern with the deal by walking out of Nokia facilities. It is believed that as many as a thousand workers marched out today (or took the day off using flex time) so that the company would know that they don’t believe the partnership is in their best interest, even after CEO’ Stephen Elop’s startlingly frank “burning platform” memo earlier this week.Many of the protestors work on the Symbian software so their jobs will be in jeopardy as Nokia begins to implement Windows Phone 7 on its handsets. Their future is not at all clear after today’s news–broad strokes have been painted but much of the logistics have yet to be revealed. Nokia will not work exclusively with the Windows Phone 7 operating system (and they will be customizing it) so jobs will be preserved but Symbian will no longer play the prominent role it once did at the company so job loss is inevitable.No job reductions have been announced as of yet, but out of the 3000 people working at Nokia’s Tampere facility (which will be closed down) over half of them work on Symbian. We’ve heard in other reports that cuts in headcount will be substantial.via (translated)Update: I’ve received word from Nokia with some clarification on the news above. The statement goes:I read the story above, and just wanted to flag that while Elop mentioned reductions today, we haven’t announced any impact on personnel or specific sites. The translation of the original story in Finnish is incorrect  – it doesn’t say that the Tampere facility will be closing.last_img read more

British woman visiting archaeological site attacked by dogs in Greece dies

first_imgA British woman believed to be attacked by stray dogs while holidaying in Greece has died.Retired academic Celia Hollingworth had visited an archaeological site at Mesimvria in northern Greece and was walking part of the way back to her accommodation in Maroneia. Last spotted at Petrota beach at 4.30 pm on Thursday, she had telephoned her family in London for help after the attack. Her relatives immediately contacted authorities in the area, resulting in a widespread search.Her body was found by police and firefighters two days later at 10.45 am local time on Saturday, with wounds consistent with being mauled by animals. According to locals, while the path Ms Hollingworth had taken was commonly in use, it passed near farms guarded by dogs, a source proposing that it is possible she was attacked by a territorial guard dog. From Wiltshire, Ms Hollingworth worked at Bristol University and was also an Oxford University professor.An active human rights campaigner, she had helped raise money for charities in Greece helping Syrian refugees.

David Levins Gamble

first_img“The company that was CMP is now gone.”That’s whatLondon-based United Business Media chief executive David Levin toldFOLIO: in late February when the company announced the restructuring ofCMP Technology into four separate businesses that will be led by fourco-CEOs. The impetus for the restructuring came after months of marketanalysis, Levin said, during which UBM determined that the company wasworking in “very different markets,” and split into four businesses tobetter align CMP’s products with its customers. UBM also decided todrop the CMP brand altogether.The Four-Way SplitCMP’s new businesses are: TechWeb (with pro forma 2007 revenueof $148 million), a technology market business of Web sites such and Light Reading, and events including Interop andVoiceCon; the Everything Channel (pro forma 2007 revenue of $73million), which formerly was the CMP Channel; TechInsights (pro forma2007 revenue of $83 million), which formerly was CMP’s ElectronicsGroup; and Think Services (pro forma 2007 revenue of $61 million),CMP’s former Game, Dr. Dobb’s and International Customer Managementgroups. The four new businesses sharesupport functions like finance, IT services, legal and global accountand sales management, UBM says. Accounts payable and receivable arepart of the centralized shared services. Human resources and audiencedevelopment roles will be handled on the divisional level. Levinsaid the restructuring is not a sign that UBM may be looking to divestone or more of the businesses. UBM reported CMP’s 2007 revenues weremore than $300 million and profits touched $50 million, up 30 percent.In 2007, the company generated 38.3 percent of revenue from print, 34.2percent from events, 20.2 percent from online products and 7.3 percentfrom workflow tools and business information services. Last year wasthe first since 2001 that CMP realized underlying revenue growth, Levinsaid.CMP had a dramatic reorganization last June, laying off morethan 200 people and closing three magazines in an effort to refocusonline. In January, former CEO Steve Weitzner bolted for competitorZiff Davis Enterprise. Word came that UBM approached at least twodifferent prominent former U.S. b-to-b publishing executives to replaceWeitzner before splitting up the company. To someobservers, the move is less about making the company nimble and moreabout Levin exerting control. One comment to said,“Basically what this is all about is David Levin taking over as thereal CEO, with Scott Mozarsky as his on-site COO to keep an eye on thenew ‘CEOs,’ operations and finances. I presume that the great CMP brandwill descend into the UBM corporate netherworld along with that othergreat corporate brand: Miller Freeman.”FOLIO: spoke withLevin about the thinking behind the move, how both the market andemployees have responded and what this move needs to succeed.FOLIO:: How did the idea for this reorganization originate? What is the purpose of the move?David Levin: It’s a progression. CMP was a fantastic magazinecompany and over the last three years we’ve worked hard to change theshape of the business rapidly. In 2004, almost three-quarters of therevenue was from magazines. Looking into 2008, we’ve said it’s going tobe less than a quarter [of the total revenue].The shift happenedthrough a series of acquisitions worth more than $200 million since2005. Through that period, we’ve progressively increased the autonomyof the structured units within CMP. Last June, there was a majordownsizing of the print side. Print economics require centralizationwhereas other operations—particularly the event businesses and onlinebusinesses—don’t require that same type of centralization. On thecontrary, to thrive, those businesses require a lot of local autonomyand fast decision-making. The restructuring freed us up and moved the business post-print.When Steve left us in the autumn, we ran this parallel process where wehad to make a choice, do we take the decentralization forward or do were-appoint a CEO. We pressure-tested that decentralization against atop crop of external executive candidates in the U.S., as well as ourown internal candidates. What emerged from the feedback from customersand the movement in our product groups was that however talented theappointment we can make, it was going to be less effective thansticking to our belief in agile decision-making. FOLIO:: We understand you spoke with at least two formerU.S. b-to-b executives about taking over CMP. Was the reorganizationPlan B after those offers didn’t work out? Levin: Absolutely not. We were at a position where we could haveappointed a number of talented individuals. This was an active choiceon our part. And I’m kicking myself for not doing it sooner.FOLIO:: What’s been the response internally at CMP? How do you get the employees to buy into this new plan? Levin: I do a regular set of town hall meetings and it’s evidentfrom the flow of people coming up to me that they are happy. It’sevident from the flow of business statistics that sales are up. We areattracting people to the business. Those are the metrics we have touse. FOLIO:: Please describe the management structure going forward.How will you coordinate between U.K. and U.S.-based executives? Who isin charge of what, not just in terms of the new U.S. divisions but onthe UBM side as well?Levin: The company is structured in a highly decentralizedmanner. We have multiple operating units worldwide and we have ahorizontal structure in addition to the four CEOs. In North America,there are six direct reports. Elsewhere, CMP Asia reports to me and CMPMedica reports to me. Where UBM adds value is the allocation of capitaland ensuring and sharing best practices. Third, UBM adds value as anengine of people development. We invest heavily in developing a cadreof leaders. Our Business Leaders program is graduating 20 to 25 people.We like to feel there’s maximum decentralization and autonomy at thiscompany. We have structured for each one of them a board—more in theEuropean sense than in the North American sense—in that it’s a forumfor business needs rather than vehicle for the chief executive to drivehis will into the business. FOLIO:: Tell us about some of those business needs?Levin: The move we’ve been making is how to change from adefensive-posture magazine company to a front-foot forward marketingservices company. That involves moving the culture quite a long way. Wehad very strong financial results last year and that trend iscontinuing.That rebalancing is quite subtle, from controlsystems where you think about page counts first to the realquestion—depending on which business you’re talking about—what doregistrations look like? What do advance bookings look like? Askingabout advertising is something to ask someone who runs a magazinebusiness. Three-quarters of our audience is not about advertising,they’re attending events, they’re buying our services, they’re buyingour intellectual properties. That’s a profound shift. There is a challenge of communicatingthat internally but it’s a lot easier doing that across the fourfocused businesses than it was when we were under one umbrella. It’seasier to do that under guise of new names and new identities.FOLIO:: With that in mind, what was the motivation for dropping the CMP brand? How does this benefit the new operation going forward? Levin: To my mind, a brand is something that means something toits audience. Our audience, in the old CMP world, related to“InformationWeek.” Our audience related to “EE Times.” Our audience atno point related to the word “CMP.” Advertisers at some point may haverelated to CMP but it was not a brand as far as the audience wasconcerned, it was a corporate name that had resonance to theadvertising community. As we have extended the nature of ourrelationships, we have kept key relationships with the audience throughpowerful brands that are in the market. That could be Black Hat, thatcould be Game Developer. They are unchanged.Now, our approach toproviders and exhibitors is much more tailored around whether they’refocused on a specific aspect that can be dealt with by a focused-namecompany. Or if they have a wider set of needs, those customers can buyacross a wider UBM environment. We have run a number of assets outside of the old “CMP Tech” andwe’re getting great traction among the major tech companies wherepreviously we wouldn’t have because of the structure. When I presented this to customers they said, ‘Great, we likehaving a large media partner called UBM, we like the scale, we like tothe combination of scale and focus.’ No other group has the same sortof structure. Asia is a clear geography and in the largestmarket—China—the products carry a local name. We’re all clusters ofproducts where the infrastructure carries the CMP name and there are noplans to change that there.When we changed the cost structure inJune 2007, we gave ourselves the opportunity to take thedecentralization further. That’s not the case with the other examples.FOLIO: What are some of the logistical issues involvedwith positioning the four new units? How much effort and expense isinvolved in scrubbing the CMP brand from items such as cards andmarketing materials?Levin: We’ve got a judicious blend of progressivedecentralization. If it can be done locally, it should be. If it shouldbe done centrally, it will be. With the IT infrastructure—there is novalue in decentralizing that because it just replicates the support andservice costs without any value. With HR, there are some benefits areasthat should remain centralized.FOLIO:: What are the costs associated with this transition? Levin: We’ve not quantified it. We’ve been mindful that if youallow four different groups to do development independently, you mayget additional development costs creeping in. The driver for this wasnever the short-term reduction in costs. The trivial costs ofre-branding, business cards, that’s just something we’ve eaten. Thereal issue is to drive toward more aggressive and faster revenuegrowth. FOLIO:: What are your short-term and long-term goals for this newstructure? What type of financial performance do you see from eachdivision now and what would you like to see by the end of the year?Where do you see growth coming from?Levin: We never laid external goals. It’s worth saying theprofitability of the actual business improved over 50 percent in 2007and 2006. It had its first underlying revenue growth in years in 2007compared to 2006 and looking forward we see that stepping up.Thegroup as a whole achieved 5 percent underlying revenue growth lastyear. I think the technology market should be faster growing thanaverage. What is exciting, suddenly we’re getting out of each one ofthem a clear agenda of growth and development. FOLIO:: What is that agenda for each business group?Levin: It’s quite distinct by group. Each one is coming up witha set of plans. Look at the first acquisitions—Everything Channel hascompleted the acquisition of the former Vision Events business out ofGartner. In a stroke that has changed that group. The TechInsightsGroup has been very fast and ambitious in the way they drove thebusiness. They will run four or five events in India this year, growingvery quickly out of the box from one event last year. FOLIO:: What are the specific challenges facing each group?Levin: Each leader is having to step up to the difference ofbeing a group president, a group CEO. There is a huge jump in terms ofpersonal accountability and ambition. With the process of appointingthem we took each one through the opportunity to lay out theirambitions and their plans for those businesses in a systematic way. FOLIO:: You’ve denied that this move was in preparation forselling off the company. However, many observers still say a sale makesthe most sense. What is your response to that?Levin: It’s no longer a question anyone inside the business asks. I don’t think our customers are asking that.The right way of looking at it is we’re trying to create a platform forgrowth and development of these businesses. We’ve put more than $200million to work in a series of acquisitions and we continue to look foracquisitions. At a personal level, as a former CEO of both hardware andsoftware companies, technology is pretty central to how I think aboutthe publishing world. When businesses are growing and prospering that’sa good time to say, where do you need more resources, not how do youget out of them.FOLIO:: A year from now, what do you want to see?Levin: Stepped up, accelerated organic growth with very clearemergent cultures. I want to see all four groups growing faster butbeing ever closer to their customers.FOLIO:: Do you have a set goal for the next year?Levin: No. Out of each of the four businesses, we’re gettingmuch more ambitious, exciting plans. One context for this: inside ofUBM, we’ve done 54 acquisitions worldwide. Not just CMP Tech, whichaccounts for just under one-third of that. We’ve got a variety ofdifferent models that serve a specific purpose.Previously, I ledthe acquisition of Institutional Investor for Euromoney, I led theacquisition of Internet Securities Inc., and common themes keep comingback. What you want out of these groups is intellectual property. If you look at Commonwealth Business Media, itself anacquisiton, it has transformed itself in a very similar way by theacquisition of OAG Holdings. That business has moved on remarkablysince we picked it up. That’s what we do.SIDEBAR: What’s in a Name? The respective CEOs are Business Technology Grouppresident Tony Uphoff (who takes over TechWeb), CMP Channel presidentRobert Faletra (who will run the Everything Channel), Electronics Grouppresident Paul Miller (who takes over TechInsights) and CMP Game,Dobb’s, and Customer Management groups president Philip Chapnick (whowill run Think Services). last_img read more

The Texas Legislature Just Ended Its Session Heres What To Expect Next

first_img Share Bob Daemmrich for The Texas TribuneThe Texas Capitol at sunsetThe Texas Legislature ended its 85th regular session Monday, having passed hundreds of bills but leaving several high-profile issues unresolved.While both chambers successfully passed a two-year $217 blllion budget — the only item the Legislature is required to pass — other controversial items, such as a “bathroom bill” to regulate which restrooms transgender Texans can use, didn’t make it to Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk, prompting speculation that a special session is inevitable. Meanwhile, some measures that did make it to the governor are likely headed for a lengthy court battle.And, then of course, there are hundreds of less controversial bills that the governor can not decide whether to sign, veto or become law without his signature. Here are answers to some questions about what to expect in the coming weeks:For how long and when would a special session happen?The Texas Constitution requires lawmakers to meet every two years for no more than 140 days. Beyond that, the governor can call the Legislature back for as many special sessions as he wants, with each lasting no more than 30 days.“I can tell you this, and that is when it gets to a special session, the time and topics are solely up to the governor of the state of Texas,” Abbott told reporters Monday at a bill-signing event. He added he would make an announcement about a possible upcoming special session “later this week.”In a special session, lawmakers can’t consider anything that isn’t on the governor’s call, though they can file bills on other topics in hopes that the governor might add their issue to the agenda.A special session also can be a lot shorter than 30 days. In 2009, then-Gov. Rick Perry called lawmakers back to the Capitol for a special session on July 1 — a full month after the end of that year’s regular session — with three items on the agenda. Members addressed all three issues the next day, returning home in time to celebrate the Fourth of July with their families.In the final weeks of the most recent session, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick urged Abbott to call the Legislature back if lawmakers didn’t manage to pass measures addressing property taxes and a “bathroom bill.” Abbott signaled that he too viewed both items as priorities, but he also emphasized Monday morning the need for both chambers to pass routine legislation that would prevent certain state agencies from shuttering. None of those measures made it to his desk before the session ended Monday afternoon.Will any of the bills the Texas Legislature just passed land the state in court?The legal fight has already started. Multiple lawsuits have been filed over an immigration law that would allow police officers to question the immigration status of people they legally detain or arrest and ban “sanctuary cities.” The sheriff of El Paso County has sued in his own capacity over Senate Bill 4. So has the City of El Cenizo and Maverick County. Other cities — like Austin — have announced their intent to sue. Lawsuits are also expected over a sweeping anti-abortion bill — which would ban the second most common second-trimester abortion procedure and require health care facilities to bury or cremate fetal remains. The bill is en route to Abbott’s desk — and he’s expected to sign it.After both chambers passed the anti-abortion bill, state Sen. José Rodríguez, D-El Paso, said Texas was “just inviting a challenge,” pointing to states such as Louisiana and Kansas that have similar legislation tied up in court.Under the bill, health care facilities, including hospitals and abortion clinics, would also be required to bury or cremate any fetal remains — whether from abortion, miscarriage or stillbirth.Both the immigration bill and the anti-abortion bill are scheduled to go into effect on Sept. 1, though legal challenges could delay implementation.Another bill that could spark a lawsuit is House Bill 25, which bans straight-ticket voting in Texas. Straight-ticket voting has been a staple of Texas’ election booths for years, but the measure that passed both chambers would end the practice in 2020. Abbott has not said whether he would sign the bill.Prior to the measure passing the upper chamber, there was heated exchange between Republican state Sen. Kelly Hancock, R-North Richland Hills, and Democrats who argued eliminating straight-ticket voting would have a disproportionate effect on minority voters. A federal judge found as much last year in Michigan and blocked the bill from being implemented.How long does the governor have to decide on whether to veto any bills?Abbott has three options once a bill reaches his desk: He can sign it into law, veto it or let it become law without his signature. He has until 20 days after the end of the session to make that decision regarding hundreds of bills. That day this year is June 18.Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry was known for wielding a hefty veto pen. He vetoed 82 bills after his first legislative session as governor — a stunning number that became known as the “Father’s Day Massacre.”Abbott, after his first legislative session as governor, vetoed about 40 bills. While the Texas Legislature has the power to override a veto, they can only do so while in session. And since governors traditionally wait until after the session is over to implement most of their vetoes, they usually have the final say.If Abbott signs a bill, the date it goes into effect depends on the language in the bill — usually that date is either Sept. 1 or 90 days after the governor signs it. In some cases, the bill will go into effect immediately.last_img read more

DC Mayor Bowser Reflects on First Year in Office

first_imgD.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (Twitter Photo)Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said that 2015 was a good year for her administration, but she wants to do more for District residents in 2016.In a wide-ranging interview with the AFRO on Dec. 21, Bowser discussed her initiative to completely end homelessness in the District in the near future, her plans for economic development and to make the city safer for residents and visitors. She was also upbeat when discussing her first year in office.“It has been a thrilling year,” Bowser said. “I am very proud to be mayor. We are working hard on the promises that we made to the residents of the District of Columbia.”No stranger to public service or District politics, Bowser served as an advisory neighborhood commissioner for 4B09 in Ward 4 representing Riggs Park from 2005 to 2007. In 2007, she replaced Adrian Fenty as the ward’s council member when he was elected mayor of the District in 2006.Bowser won the Democratic Party mayoral primary on April 1, 2014 and went on to win the general election on Nov. 4, 2014. She is the District’s second elected female mayor—the first was Sharon Pratt Kelly, who served from 1991 to 1995—and has been on a whirlwind since taking office in Jan. 2.While running for mayor, Bowser pledged to come up with a strategy to “make homelessness rare, brief and non-recurring.”“In order to end homelessness we went out and recruited the best team in order to do that and I am proud of the work of our human service director [Laura Zeilinger],” she said. “We are also implementing our Homeward D.C. plan and we are working to give it the resources that it needs to be a success.”“The plan calls for us to make sure homeless individuals and families are housed first and we will close D.C. General Hospital [homeless shelter],” Bowser said.The anti-homelessness plan calls for the much-criticized D.C. General Hospital shelter to be closed sometime in 2016, and for the establishment of shelters in all of the city’s eight wards. She understands that some affluent residents who reside in Wards 2 and 3 may not want homeless people nearby.“The message that we are getting from residents in all wards is that they want emergency housing that fits within their neighborhood,” Bowser said. “Everyone in the city understands that D.C. General is not the answer in terms of stopping homelessness. We want to put the homeless in smaller and more humane facilities.”Bowser also said that homelessness is “not a downtown problem, but a city problem.”The mayor said she recognizes that homelessness may be a symptom of a lack of economic opportunities for some residents in the District. She has charged her Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development Brian Kenner to work to expand employment opportunities for District residents, particularly in the high-tech sector.“We want our technology sector to be more inclusive,” the mayor said. “The tech industry in our city hasn’t been very diverse and we want to expand opportunities for residents east of the Anacostia River.”Bowser said that an arrangement was reached with Howard University to set up a tech and innovation hub on Georgia Avenue. The prior mayoral administration under Mayor Vincent Gray planned to set up a tech hub at the St. Elizabeths East campus in Ward 8, with the possibility of such companies as Microsoft being the lead tenant. However, Bowser said that won’t work because no firm commitment was made by Microsoft.“It was an idea, but there are no leases by Microsoft or any of the other companies that were mentioned at that time, to come to St. Elizabeths,” she said. “St. Elizabeths needed a tenant. When you have a tenant, it is easier to get others to come in.”On Sept, 15, Bowser announced that a large portion of the St. Elizabeths East campus will be devoted to the building of a professional athletics facility that will host Washington Mystics games and Washington Wizards practices, among other events. The mayor said that athletic facility could attract other tenants to St. Elizabeths; the U.S. Coast Guard is already on the St. Elizabeths West campus and is slated to be joined by the huge U.S. Department of Homeland Security headquarters in the future.Bowser said that her economic development team will continue its work to push the D.C. United Stadium in Ward 6, the Walter Reed Hospital site in Ward 4 on Georgia Avenue and Skyland Town Center in Ward 7.The professional athletic facility is close to Congress Park, a neighborhood that has experienced a spike in crime within the last year. She said that her goal is to make sure that all District residents live in a safe city.“The community in Congress Park cried out for help and we responded,” she said.The mayor announced her crime initiative at the shuttered Malcolm X Elementary School in Congress Park on Aug. 27. While her plan was well-received by many residents, there were concerns about her allowing police officers to go into the residences of some returning citizens who are former felons to search for firearms without a warrant.That part of her plan is still up in the air, and faces opposition in the D.C. Council. However, the council recently passed a police body camera bill that she largely backs.“Next summer, we will have 2,800 officers that will have body cameras,” she said.Bowser said that the District’s police department’s much-praised community policing program has helped the city avoid heated confrontations between the police and neighborhood residents.“We have a come a long way with our police department,” she said. “We have professionalized our police department and it has great leadership. However, relations between the community and police are fragile and we cannot rest on our laurels.”In 2016, Bowser said that she will work to see that District residents get quality jobs, and re-iterated her desire to close D.C. General and invest more in the District’s public schools system, regardless of whether the school is public or charter.“They are all public schools,” the mayor said. She noted that there are plans to open a modernized Theodore Roosevelt High School and the school for young males of color in Ward 7 next year.last_img read more

4 Tips for Maximizing the Users Advertising Experience

first_img 2015, in many ways, was a year in which digital advertising failed the consumer, and many of these fed-up users finally took a stand with ad-blocking. From irrelevant ads to intrusive ad formats, it’s never been more clear that the industry could be doing so much better. This year, it’s way past time for brands and agencies to start putting consumers’ needs and their state of mind first when delivering mobile advertising. In the fast-paced digital era, consumers put a high premium on their time and attention, and expect to have control over their interactions with brands, on their terms, especially on their most personal device – mobile. The advertising world needs to recognize that, and there needs to be a user-first paradigm shift in mobile advertising that looks something like this:1. Adopt a user-first approach.There’s a reason the industry finally started catching on to mobile moments last year: consumers will not engage with your ad if it’s disruptive and doesn’t intuitively flow with their experience. Therefore, advertisers need to use the data available to them – without being invasive – to determine when the optimal moments are during an in-app user journey to approach user with a contextualized brand message that makes sense and increases receptivity.Related: Customers Are Still Slow to Adopt Innovative Tech. Why the Lag?2. Don’t hijack the steering wheel (or the screen).Though there are a few exceptions, most advertisers still approach users like it’s 2003. Laughably poor digital ad formats that have been around for decades, such as banner ads, pre-roll and other inescapable interstitials, simply do not belong on mobile. They only annoy users, and are a disservice to your brand and messaging. As more and more users spend time in unique app environments like messaging services, health trackers, photo editors, and more, it’s time for brands to start thinking creatively about the delivery of the ads they place in these mediums. Ads can’t hijack the experience; they have to be part of the experience, and make sense to the user.Related: 4 Digital Marketing Trends to Pay Attention to Right Now3. Let users choose the route. In order for advertising to be radically non-invasive, it’s time for brands to embrace the idea of letting consumers choose how and when to engage with their message. It may be a hard pill to swallow, but if you want to increase brand favorability and recall,then stay out of the consumer’s way, and give them the power to choose to engage with you – opt in to the experience – then they’re much more likely to form a positive relationship with the brand. Think of your advertising as outreach, offering interaction without forcing it.4. Offer value.If you’ve gotten this far in your ad strategy, you’ve done your homework. You’ve contextualized your approach to your user’s digital environment and what they’re experiencing at the time. Using that information, understanding their needs and state of mind, you – as a brand – can ensure your message and your approach align with it and offer a value proposition to the user. There’s no better way to gain their attention and their affection by making them feel like their attention is worth something, and that they get something out of it in return.Related: Make Your Advertising Work for YouThe truth is, these ideas individually aren’t new, but all of them being implemented together in mobile advertising is critical. Unfortunately brands and agencies taking the “easy approach” and are falling into the same traps of old tactics gone sour – losing money on metrics that don’t prove any actual engagements, and losing credibility among consumers. But, by adapting this mobile-first, user-first mentality, your campaigns will have more impact and turn around better results – thus turning users into brand evangelists vs. brand blockers. This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.

A Benghazi power Libya militia eyed in attack

first_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day The banner, whose origins some say date back early Muslim conquests in the 7th century, became the symbol of the past week’s protests around the Muslim world against a movie made in the United States that denigrates Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.Only days after the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, around 200 members of the group drove through Benghazi, brandishing automatic weapons, in a procession of cars to “champion the Prophet” in reaction to the film.“We want Islamic Shariah laws to govern Libya or we will stage a second revolution,” one bearded young member of the group at the event Friday told a reporter. “We will be a threat to America.” He refused to give his name.Over the weekend, Libyan President Mohammed el-Megarif told The Associated Press that some members of Ansar al-Shariah carried out the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate, which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.“At least some of them, not necessarily the militia as a whole,” he said, suggesting divisions within the group. El-Megarif said the attack had been planned well in advance to coincide with the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in the United States, adding that foreign al-Qaida members were also in Libya and that he couldn’t rule out that they had a role. Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day 5 ways to recognize low testosterone Top Stories “They want assurances on the nation’s future, the place of Shariah laws in the new Libya,” he said.___Hendawi reported from Cairo.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) In fact, it guards one of Benghazi’s main hospitals.Libya’s militias are a legacy of last year’s bloody civil war that led to the ouster and killing of longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi _ and their continued power underscores the weakness of the country’s new political leadership nearly a year after the war ended. With a range of ideologies, the militias arose from local groups that took up arms and battled Gadhafi’s forces. Across the country, they still resist integration into the armed forces and remain in many places the sole forces keeping a fragile sense of order.Ansar al-Shariah, which denies it was part of the attack, is not the biggest of Benghazi’s militias. But it is viewed as the most disciplined and feared, with links to other militant groups in Benghazi and eastern Libya. They are also the most forceful in demanding that the new Libya be ruled by a strident and intolerant interpretation of Islam and Shariah law not far removed from al-Qaida’s.Its fighters have paraded through the streets in pick-up trucks mounted with anti-aircraft guns, draped with a black flag with the Islamic profession of faith, “There is no god but God and Muhammad is God’s prophet” in white _ which has also been used by al-Qaida and many ultraconservative Islamists. Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Associated PressBENGHAZI, Libya (AP) – Suspicion in last week’s attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans has focused on members of a hardcore Islamist militia known for its sympathies to al-Qaida, its fierce animosity to the U.S. and its intimidation of other Muslims who don’t conform to its harsh ideology.That doesn’t mean Libyan authorities will move against Ansar al-Shariah soon. The group is among the most powerful of the many, heavily armed militias that the government relies on to keep security in Benghazi. Rivalries are rife between militias, but other factions are wary of tangling with Ansar al-Shariah.In June, it held a major parade through Benghazi to mark its founding. More than 120 of its “battle trucks” _ the pick-ups with heavy machine guns bolted in the bed _ proceeded through the city. At the city center, some residents pelted them with stones, shouting, “Go home!” The parade turned away to avoid a confrontation.The group’s members have been blamed for a string of recent attacks against Muslim shrines around Libya. The shrines, including tombs of religious figures, are revered by Sufis and other moderate Muslims. But Ansar al-Shariah, which denies responsibility for the attacks, and other hard-liners consider visits to the shrines as tantamount to idol worship and an affront to Islam.Ansar al-Shariah’s prestige was boosted when the militia took over security at the Jalaa Hospital, the city’s main emergency hospital. Its fighters are posted at the hospital entrance and in its halls.“The fact is that things have been going very well in the hospital since Ansar al-Shariah fighters were assigned to be in charge there,” said Mohammed Qaeir, a senior member of the more moderate Muslim Brotherhood in Benghazi. “Previously, the hospital and the doctors worked under the threat of violence by gunmen. This is not happening there anymore.” Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Comments   Share   Sponsored Stories But he fears that the consulate attack signals divisions within the militia and its leadership, between a radical wing and a more moderate faction.One senior figure in Ansar al-Shariah, Youssef Jihani, denied the group took part in the attack. “We never approve of killing civilians, especially those who helped us,” he said the day after the attack.Still, he reflected the group’s deeply anti-U.S. sentiment. “All of America’s policies are hostile to Islam,” he said in an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday. “If America is waging war against al-Qaida, then al-Qaida has a right to defend itself.”“We oppose American policies because they are stained in Muslim blood,” he said.Wanis al-Sherif, formerly a senior leader of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, warns that alienating Islamist militias like Ansar al-Shariah could offer al-Qaida a foothold among their followers. The LIFG was an anti-Gadhafi militant group that once had training camps with Afghanistan, and many of its members have now turned to politics in the new Libya.Decades of brutal crackdowns under Gadhafi, al-Sherif said, have left them “worried that they will live under another dictatorship that will crack down on Islamists. The U.S., which is investigating the attack alongside Libyan officials, says a different scenario may be shaping up. Rather than a plot, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice said it appeared that armed gunmen hijacked what had been a spontaneous protest against the anti-Islam movie.In either case, the militia says it did not participate “as an organization” in the protest at the consulate, though that leaves the possibility that members joined on their own. It also says none of its followers have been arrested since.Ansar al-Shariah, whose name in Arabic means “Supporters of Shariah,” broke away last summer from the February 17 Brigade, which was the main militia force in Benghazi in the fight against Gadhafi’s forces. Benghazi was the first city to rebel in early 2011 and became the de facto opposition capital. Militiamen battled fiercely to defend the city from a major regime offensive _ which was halted mainly by NATO airstrikes _ and then they turned the tables and advanced west along the coast.Now the militias, including Ansar al-Shariah, tout themselves as defenders of Libya’s revolutionAccording to its leaders, Ansar al-Shariah numbers about 300 active members, though other factions say they believe it actually numbers as many as 5,000. Some of its leaders are veterans of the numerous wars in Afghanistan.last_img read more

Etyk to push for same terms for Coop workers

first_imgBank employees’ union Etyk aims to gradually equate the terms of employment for its members at the Co-operative network, with the ultimate goal of a single collective employment agreement across the banking sector, it announced on Tuesday.In a circular to its members who work in the Co-ops, the union stated that in line with the existing industrial relations code it has already submitted its demands to the Co-operative Central Bank’s management.“Etyk intends to negotiate with responsibility and determination the collective agreement, according to labour rules, striving for the best possible result for our members based on agreements we have made with all other banks,” it said.“At the same time, Etyk expects implementation of the commitment by the Co-op Central Bank’s management for our members to have the option of joining the union’s health fund.”The gist of the problem lies in a five-year collective agreement signed by the CCB and Co-op employees in 2014, “at a time when our union did not represent Co-op employees”, which Etyk does not consider binding.“The contents of the agreements our union has made with almost all banks, renewing collective agreements that expired on December 31, 2016 and the gradual increases in compensation and benefits to our members, once more indicate the correctness of Etyk’s choices,” the circular said.The Co-op network has evolved into a bank, Etyk argued, which is why “every day, more and more Co-op employees join forces with other bank employees under Etyk’s wings.“Today, as much as some are trying to hide the fact, Etyk’s dues-paying members have exceeded 1,000, and it is the leading union in the Co-op network in terms of members,” the union said.“The union’s authority and import is such that it will no longer allow the trapping of Co-op employees in the famous five-year agreement of 2014.”Etyk called on its members to stand united in support of the union’s leadership.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Call for resignations in north amid corruption claims

first_imgTwo parties have called for the resignation of a Turkish Cypriot official responsible for transportation after claims that he forced a company to pay some $225,000 per month for the inspection of construction work at Tymbou (Ercan) airport, which could have been conducted for free, media reports in the north said.YDP and HP demanded the resignation of then ‘transport minister’ Tahsin Ertugruloglou, now serving as ‘foreign minister’, after the owner of Tas Yapi, Emrullah Turanli, charged that he had used threats to force him to pay the cost of the inspections assigned to a Turkish company for $11m.Turkish Cypriot media said Ertugruloglu chose two inspection companies from Turkey without going through a tender process.The Turkish Cypriot ombudsman said the act was unlawful and that Turkey had already provided inspectors to do the job free of charge.The ombudsman said the job had been given to Diamond Green Administration and Consultant Services Ltd and APCO Technical Consultants in 2015, after a decision by the Turkish Cypriot administration. The two companies would get a total of $11m to be paid in 50 monthly instalments.According to the reports, one of the inspection companies in question was owned by a businessman who was a friend of Bilal Erdogan, the son of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
