Rabat – A video posted on YouTube on Monday shows a young Moroccan street vendor in Dchira, Inzegan near Agadir, going half-naked in public while threatening to kill himself.The street vendor took off his clothes – remaining only in his boxer shorts – in a protest of the authorities’ decision to ban street vendors from selling their products on main streets.The man held a knife and threatened that he would stab himself if the authorities tried to touch him or take his vegetables and fruits he was selling. A group of bystanders gathered around the angry street vendor while the authorities tried to stop him from hurting himself.The man was in a hysterical state, screaming and yelling at the authorities to stay away from him and allow him to sell his vegetables and fruits.Moroccan authorities are once again cracking down on street vendors, saying they have to stay free of public places and pedestrian walkways.Last month, 42-year-old street vendor named Fateeha, covered her body with paint thinner and set herself on fire in Kenitra after local officers confiscated her goods.The Moroccan activists called on the government to restructure the sector of street vendors instead of waging war against them, given the large number of vendors affected by the government’s position.According to study carried out by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and NewTechnologies in 2013, roughly 240,000 street vendors in Morocco’s towns and cities were the ones bringing home wages, supporting over 1.3 million people. read more

Rabat – Algeria’s Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia is “100 percent behind” the allegations of his Minister of Foreign Affairs, Abdelkader Messahel, who provoked a diplomatic crisis with the kingdom by accusing Moroccan banks of “laundering drug money.”“If our neighbors are angry, well that’s too bad for them, and all the better for us,” said Ouyahia on October 25, during an interview with a state-owned radio station.After being asked about his National Democratic Party’s stance on Messahel’s allegations, the prime ministers stated that they are “an Algerian political party.” For Ouyahia, it is obvious then that “we are 100 percent behind our government in everything related to Algeria‘s foreign relations.” On October 20, Messahel accused Morocco of “laundering drug money in Sub-Saharan Africa,”during a discussion hosted by the Forum of Algerian Business Leaders (FCE).The Algerian official claimed that Morocco has been laundering cannabis money through banks in the continent, adding that Moroccan banks are being used in laundering the revenues from the sales of hashish. “Everybody knows that,” he said.The head of Algerian diplomacy added that he was told this information by “African heads of state.”Messahel also accused Morocco’s state-owned airline, Royal Air Maroc (RAM), of “carrying something other than passengers,” referring to cannabis.Messahel’s claims prompted a strong backlash from Moroccan authorities, RAM, and La Confédération Générale des Entreprises du Maroc (CGEM), Morocco’s business union.Following his allegations against the country, Morocco’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs published a press release strongly condemning the official statements.“Following the very serious statements of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria, concerning the African policy of the Kingdom of Morocco, the Chargé d’Affaires of the Embassy of Algeria in Rabat was summoned tonight, at the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation,” read the ministry’s statement, posted on its Facebook account.The ministry added that the allegations made by the Algerian minister showed a lack of knowledge regarding the Moroccan banking system and the rules of the international civil aviation.“The remarks made by the Algerian Minister on banking institutions and the national airline, testify to a deep and inexplicable ignorance of basic standards of the functioning of the banking system and civil aviation, both at national level and international,” said the ministry.RAM has also vehemently denounced Messahel’s claims.“The slanderous remarks of the Algerian Minister of Foreign Affairs show a total ignorance of the sector,” said the airline. “Air traffic is a highly regulated environment by highly qualified international bodies.” read more

Trent Barter contributed to this story. The NCAA has formally notified Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee of its intent to obtain documents regarding the investigation of football coach Jim Tressel and six players for selling memorabilia, receiving improper benefits and failing to report the violations. The NCAA says the allegations are considered “potential major violations of NCAA legislation” and that the university may request that the major violations be considered secondary, with supporting evidence. The NCAA is requesting each allegation be confirmed or denied with supporting evidence. The university must compile all requested documents and respond to the allegations by July 5. Gee, Tressel and OSU athletic director Gene Smith are scheduled to meet with the NCAA Committee on Infractions on Aug. 12. John Bruno, faculty athletics representative, and Doug Archie, director of compliance, are also requested at the meeting. In the letter dated April 21, the committee wrote to Gee that it “is most interested in your presentation.” The athletic department said it has no further comment during the response phase. If the committee finds the alleged violations occurred, penalties will be assessed based on Bylaw 19.5.2. Sanctions could be as severe as vacating OSU’s wins from the 2010 season. However, the 2011 Sugar Bowl victory will not be vacated, as the NCAA reinstated the athletes for that game on the basis that the athletes “did not receive adequate rules education during the time period the violations occurred,” said Kevin Lennon, NCAA vice president of academic and membership affairs. Tressel could face termination of employment, and the program could suffer losses of scholarships and off-campus recruiting, according to the bylaw. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor, offensive lineman Mike Adams, running back Dan Herron, wide receiver DeVier Posey and defensive lineman Solomon Thomas are suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season for selling game-worn memorabilia and awards and receiving free tattoos. Tressel will join them for the first five games of the season. He also faces a $250,000 fine. Josephine Potuto, a University of Nebraska professor in constitutional law, served on the NCAA Committee of Infractions from 2006–08 and chaired the committee in 2007 and 2008. “It’s very unusual for the infractions committee to reject the school’s penalties,” she said, “but in every infractions case I know of, the committee imposed further penalties.” read more

A statue of pioneering suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst has been upgraded to Grade II* listed status, giving it further protection from being moved or destroyed after a long campaign from feminists.Plans earlier this year to move the figure from its position overlooking Parliament to a private univeristy sparked condemnation from women’s groups and were dubbed “an act of vandalism against women’s history” by Caroline Criado Perez, who led the successful campaign for the statue to Millicent Fawcett which was unveiled in Parliament Square this April.The statue, unveiled on March 30 1930 by then-prime minister Stanley Baldwin, has been upgraded from Grade II to Grade II* status by Historic England. This gives the Westminster statue greater protection from being altered, relocated or demolished.It was moved to its current position overlooking Parliament and was adapted to include a bronze profile of her daughter Christabel, also an active Suffragette, in 1959, and an inscription also commemorates the many other members of the WSPU.The statue has had Grade II listed status since 1970.The change marks the centenery of  women over the age of 30 being granted the right to vote in 1918 following the passing of the Representation of the People Act.Criado Perez told The Telegraph: “Earlier this year, Emmeline Pankhurst’s statue was under threat of being hidden away in the grounds of a little visited private university, miles from Parliament where she belongs.”I’m absolutely delighted that we are closing this centenary year not only having successfully shelved that ahistorical project, but with the news that the original suffragette-commissioned Pankhurst statue is finally being given the recognition it deserves.”May she stand there for another hundred years, inspiring women and girls everywhere with the message that their voices do matter, and that democracy belongs to them too.”Heritage Minister Michael Ellis added: “Emmeline Pankhurst was a pioneer of her time and was instrumental in securing votes for women.”It is a fitting tribute that at the end of this centenary year we recognise the important role she played in securing the equality we rightly enjoy today.”Pankhurst is one of the most recognisable faces of the women’s suffrage movement. She first campaigned for married women to be allowed to vote in local elections through the Women’s Franchise League which she founded in 1889, and wend on to found the much more radical 1903 WSPU which earned notoriety for its tactics including breaking windows in important buildings, arson of empty buildings and cutting phone lines.Deborah Mays, of Historic England, the body tasked with protecting buildings and monuments of national importance, said: “The statue is a tribute to Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst who were instrumental in bringing about women’s suffrage in Britain.”It is a finely crafted memorial in a significant location which bears witness to the struggle and success of the movement Pankhurst led.”It is fitting to give it a higher grade listing at the end of this centenary year.”Pankhurst is one of a small number of women whose statues have been given Grade II* listed status, with others including  include Queen Victoria, Lady Godiva and the Virgin Mary. read more

first_imgA 4.7-MAGNITUDE earthquake shook buildings in Los Angeles today, with US seismologists saying it was the strongest to hit the area since 2010, but there were no reports of damage or casualties.The epicentre of the quake was some 19 kilometres southeast of Anza, California – about 100 miles southeast of Los Angeles – and was felt in San Diego, two hours’ drive down the coast from LA.The quake shook buildings including one housing AFP’s offices in Hollywood, northwest of downtown. But there were no immediate reports of people being hurt or property being damaged, according to the Los Angeles Times or other media.The USGS initially put the magnitude of the quake at 5.1, but later downgraded it to 4.7. It was still the strongest quake in the LA metropolis since since 2010.“It’s been three years since we had anything this size this close to Los Angeles,” said USGS seismologist Susan Hough.Los Angeles is on the so-called “Ring of Fire”, which circles the Pacific and has produced a number of devastating earthquakes, including Japan’s March 2011 quake and tsunami, which killed thousands of people.While major quakes in recent years have shaken Japan, Indonesia, Chile, New Zealand and Mexico, the US West Coast has been spared.- © AFP, 2013last_img read more

Those numbers might seem unrealistic or daunting for Alexa, but they might also hint at the sort of potential Amazon sees for its popular voice platform.”Getting started is as simple as filling in the blanks,” Amazon’s blog concludes. “We can’t wait to see what you create.”Alexa, take me to churchAmong the new skill templates are new “University” and “Spiritual Talks” blueprints designed to let educational and religious institutions broadcast lectures and sermons via people’s Echo speakers.

It will streamline the process of making an audio feed that you can incorporate into daily Alexa news rundowns. Creators can either upload audio or enter the URL of an existing audio feed into the blueprint, or they can record audio live directly from the blueprint interface. From there, they’re free to publish their content straight to the Skills Store so Alexa users can find it and add it to their personalized Flash Briefings. Like with other skills, blueprint-guided or otherwise, these submissions to the Skills Store are subject to Amazon’s certification process for quality assurance and adherence to Amazon’s content standards and security requirements.Amazon seems particularly focused on encouraging outside developers to find new ways of putting Alexa’s voice platform to use — and to profit from it, too.

first_imgIn the 1960s, king salmon were abundant in Alaska, and it stayed that way through the 90s. After the new millennium, though, Chinook numbers fell — and they’ve remained low since.(Wikimedia Commons photo by Riccardo Rossi)“People have scratched their heads and said, ‘Where are all the kings? What happened to all the kings?’” said Andy Seitz, an associate professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences.At a lecture in Unalaska this week, Seitz explained how his research team has studied adult Chinook in the Bering Sea for the last three years. The project relied on pop-up satellite tags, which attach to salmon and measure the water temperature, depth, and ambient light of their environment.Seitz has collected data from 17 tags and discovered a pattern: Chinook usually spend nights in the warm, shallow waters of the Bering Sea and then dive to deep, cold waters during the day.But looking at the data more closely, Seitz said he noticed something strange: seven instances where king salmon recorded high temperatures in deep water — water that should be cold.“Where is it 70 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit yet diving to 50 meters deep? It’s a tropical little oasis in the Bering Sea, and it’s in the stomach of this thing. This is a salmon shark,” Seitz said.Seitz and his team think warm-blooded salmon sharks ate the kings and their tags, and the odd data was recorded when fish were trapped in the sharks’ guts. He also said they found five instances where marine mammals and other unidentified predators could have killed Chinook.So while he can’t be certain, Seitz said his team may have found another possible explanation for the decline of king salmon. It may not be the result of an evolving species or an evolving climate, but a previously unknown source of marine mortality that should be investigated further.“The take-home message from this is not: Salmon sharks and marine mammals are causing the decline of king salmon,” Seitz said. “We’re not saying that.”“But it was previously thought that salmon sharks hang out in the Bering Sea in the summertime and then skedaddle out of there because of cold water in the winter. But most of these salmon shark mortality events occur smack-dab in the middle of the winter,” Seitz said. “So this makes us rethink a few assumptions about king salmon and their causes of death.”Seitz and his team are now looking for funding to continue their project, which — at $4,000 per salmon tag — has already cost more than $375,000.The original purpose of the study was to see if pop-off tags are good tools for studying Chinook. And now that they’ve collected some compelling data, Seitz said they’re hoping to increase their sample size — and keep studying the lives and deaths of king salmon in the Bering Sea.last_img read more

first_imgIndian stock markets shed early morning gains to end with losses on Tuesday as profit-booking and forecast of a “close call” on Britain’s exit (Brexit) from the European Union closer to the June 23 deadline resulted in sentiments remaining subdued.Shares of SpiceJet, Jet Airways and IndiGo-parent Interglobe Aviation fell on Tuesday after rallying sharply the previous day in response to liberalised foreign direct investment (FDI) norms for the civil aviation sector. Interglobe was down 3.09 percent, Jet Airways lost 1.53 percent and SpiceJet ended 3.25 percent lower on the BSE.The BSE S&P Sensex shed 54 points to close at 26,813 while the 50-scrip NSE Nifty ended 19 points lower at 8,220. Top Sensex losers included NTPC, Adani Ports and Axis Bank while ONGC Mahindra & Mahindra and Wipro ended with marginal gains in the range of 0.70 percent to 1.70 percent.”We will go into the vote without high confidence in predicting the outturn in either direction,” JPMorgan researcher Malcolm Barr said in a research note to clients titled “Brexit polling update: It’s close”, reported CNBC-TV18.Hindalco was the biggest gainer on NSE and closed 1.82 percent higher at Rs. 123.25. On the BSE, the Adityla Birla Group company hit a 52-week high of Rs.124.60 before closing at Rs.123.25. Prospects for Hindalco are expected to be bullish over the next few years.Monday’s trading surprised market watchers who had predicted the Sensex to correct sharply in response to RBI governor Raghuram Rajan conveying that a second term for him at the bank was not on the cards.Sentiments got a boost after the Narendra Modi government liberalised foreign direct investment (FDI) norms in many sectors, including civil aviation, defence and pharmaceuticals.Domestic institutional investors were net buyers of stocks worth Rs. 724 crore, while foreign institutional investors were net sellers at Rs. 537 crore, according to provisional data provided by the National Stock Exchange (NSE).However, in the absence of any such trigger, markets corrected on Tuesday, despite opening on a positive note tracking Asian equities.Among the BSE500 stocks, Bombay Dyeing was the top gainer at Rs. 48.20 (up 8.19 percent), followed by Trident and Gati.last_img read more
