MoroccoAngola Rapprochement Officials Meet to Discuss Bilateral Agreements

Rabat – Moroccan officials have visited Luanda this week to discuss bilateral agreements, raising hopes for a diplomatic rapprochement between the two countries. The Moroccan delegation’s working visit, which began July 23, aims to prepare the third session of the joint Morocco-Angola commission. Officials discussed their bilateral ties and “future trade and cooperation agreements” that a rapprochement would entail. In addition to high-ranking Moroccan officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Moroccan delegation consisted of officials from the departments of education, transport, industry, and agriculture, considered strategic for bilateral cooperation between the two states. This week’s visit comes two weeks after an Angolan delegation led by Foreign Affairs Minister Manuel Domingos Augusto paid a similar visit to Morocco. During the Angolan delegation’s stay in Morocco, Domingos Augusto visited the Tangier-Med harbor and expressed his country’s desire to actively collaborate with Morocco on expertise sharing.Angola is both a leading African economy and a traditionally pro-Polisario country, making the rapprochement between Rabat and Luanda significant.Morocco seeks to go out of its African diplomacy comfort zone by furthering its recently-gained continental diplomatic assertiveness, even in traditionally “hostile territories,” according to a Moroccan diplomatic source. According to the same source, this week’s visit is the culmination of a year-long active but unofficial rapprochement. Although formal discussions to tighten diplomatic ties only started in mid-July this year, King Mohammed VI and President Joao Lourenco gave the green light long ago when they met on the sidelines of the last two AU heads of state summits. The two leaders also met more recently at the Blue Funds summit in Congo, where President Lourenco is believed to have told Mohammed VI that he has “a keen interest in the Moroccan development model.” read more

USChina trade battle hurting export sales of both countries

WASHINGTON — The trade war between the United States and China has had a substantial impact on trade flows between the world’s two largest economies. But one thing has remained constant — the United States is still running its biggest trade deficit with China.The Commerce Department reported Friday that America’s deficit in merchandise trade with China through the first six months of this year stood at $167 billion, down 10.1% from the same period last year.That is still well above the deficit the United States is running with Mexico of $50.3 billion, which is the second largest imbalance. The deficit with Mexico did increase by a sharp 34.2% in the first six months of the year.With both America and China in a tit-for-tat tariff war, trade flows of both countries have suffered. America’s goods exports to China have fallen 18.9% in the first half of this year to $52 billion while China’s sales to the United States have fallen by 12.4% to $219 billion.The Associated Press read more

Funding shortage forces UN to reduce food rations for refugees in northern

“We have done everything possible to avoid this, but it has become necessary to reduce ration sizes by 20 per cent in November and December in order to stretch our existing food stocks to last through the end of the year,” said Ronald Sibanda, Country Director in Kenya for the World Food Programme (WFP). “We hope this will be a temporary measure as we appeal to donors to come to the assistance of the hundreds of thousands of refugees who rely on WFP to meet their daily food needs.”WFP urged donors to respond to its urgent appeal “as quickly as possible,” noting that it needs about $10 million every month to distribute more than 10,000 metric tons of food to refugees in the two camps.While reduced rations will allow food distributions to continue for the 535,000 camp-based refugees through the end of the year, further cuts may be necessary if no additional resources become available, as food stocks will be nearly exhausted by January. “We believe that the international community understands the importance of continuing this vital food lifeline for the refugees in Dadaab and Kakuma,” said Raouf Mazou, the Representative of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for Kenya. “We are concerned that a reduction in rations could have a negative impact on the health and nutrition of refugees who rely on the food assistance,” he stated.The 20 per cent reduction in ration sizes means that refugees will not receive the World Health Organization’s (WHO) minimum recommended energy requirements of 2,100 kilocalories per day and will instead get 1,680 kilocalories. WFP has been providing food assistance, consisting of cereals, pulses, vegetable oil and salt, to thousands of refugees from across the region since the camps in Dadaab and Kakuma were established more than 20 years ago. read more

Let Romanov family rest in peace together says Princess on 100th anniversary

The family and experts had hoped that the matter would be resolved by the time of the 100th anniversary of their deaths this week.It has now been postponed until at least 2020. Yesterday, a dozen members of the Romanov Family Association attended two memorial services in St Petersburg, visiting the Hermitage Museum, which was once the Tsar’s Winter Police, and taking part in a liturgy dedicated to the 100th anniversary with governor Georgy Poltavchenko.

They also paid their respects at Peter and Paul Fortress, where the remains of Nicholas II, his wife and three of his five children are buried.In honour of their long Russian heritage, the Romanov women wore hats made “by imperial appointment” by Lady Laura Cathcart, whose ancestors were ambassadors to the court of Catherine the Great in the 18th century.Princess Olga, speaking after the Russian services, told the Telegraph the family now hoped for “closure”, and for the bodies of the two children to be laid to rest. The descendants of the Russian imperial family have called on the church to give them “closure”, allowing the bodies of two missing Romanov children to be laid to rest with their parents on the centenary of their murder.Princess Olga, the great-niece of Tsar Nicholas II and president of the Romanov Family Association, said the burial of the brother and sister, along with their three siblings and parents, would finally allow their family to “rest in peace” together.The Princess, who lives in 13th century mansion Provender House in Kent, travelled with a dozen family members to St Petersburg yesterday to mark the 100th anniversary of the execution of the Tsar, Tsarina, their children and acquaintances in the mystery which has absorbed the public for decades.Prince Michael of Kent, a first cousin twice removed of Tsar Nicholas II who bears a striking resemblance to him, flew to St Petersburg for the memorial, along with his wife Princess Michael and several other members of the family now living in Britain and across Europe.They arrived in Russian in the midst of the latest debate within the Russian Orthodox Church about the bones of their ancestors, found in two unmarked graves proven by extensive DNA testing to be accurate. Prince and Princess Michael travelled to Russia for the private family visit with the support of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, a spokesman said. A procession marking the death of the Russian royal family in Yekaterinburg Credit:Barcroft Describing the “slightly political” dispute, she said she was optimistic that it would be resolved, adding that it was important to be patient in a country not famed for its “snap decisions”.The church has said the remains must be tested further since the royal family are Orthodox saints, but it also appears to fear offending clergy including a bishop close to Vladimir Putin who believe the relics were destroyed in a Jewish conspiracy.Other distant relatives of the Tsar attended a different memorial in Yekaterinburg, where the family were executed, and met with the Russian Orthodox church leadership.On the exact anniversary of the 2.30am execution, more than 100,000 believers joined a 13-mile procession led by Patriarch Kirill from the execution site to the mineshaft where the remains were thrown.

It would be nice to have a place that one can go and say a prayer for them all. That will be it then, really.” The Russian Imperial family A procession marking the death of the Russian royal family in Yekaterinburg Patriarch Kirill of the Russian orthodox church holds a service at the Church of All Saints in Yekaterinburg Credit:Barcroft Some in the church have refused to recognised the bodies of two Romanov children buried separately to their siblings and parents,which are now held in a state vault while they are investigated by a commission of state and church officials.

Dublins new stationless bike company has stalled its launch over council concerns

first_img Image: BleeperBikes THE LAUNCH OF a new ‘stationless’ bike scheme in Dublin has been pushed back while the company tries to iron out permission from the local council.Last week Dublin City Council raised concerns about shared bike service BleeperBike, which was due to launch today, saying that it does not have the local authority’s consent to operate.BleeperBike’s CEO Hugh Cooney is now due to meet with the council later this week in an effort to reconcile the two sides.In an email to Fora, Cooney said that the BleeperBike service will now be rolled out “over the coming weeks” instead . He did not specify a date.BleeperBike was to work via a smartphone app, which customers could use to locate and hire the company’s bikes across the cities. Users would be charged per journey before locking bikes up for future users.However unlike the Dublin Bikes scheme, where bikes must be left back at special stations, BleeperBikes can be left at any designated area for bike parking.The company had planned to launch its offering in Dublin on Sunday. People with a registered account could top it up by €5 to get five rides of up to one hour each.It was expected to launch with about 1,000 bikes. The smartphone app was to be used to unlock the bikes.Cooney is the son of former Enterprise Ireland chairman Hugh Cooney. According to the Sunday Time, the BleeperBikes CEO invested about €750,000 in getting the ‘dockless’ bike model off the ground using technology licensed from Chinese firm YoBike. Dublin Bikes has been successful Source: Sam Boal/RollingNews.ieDelayBleeperBike has delayed its launch as it looks to engage with the council.“There is no official launch date for BleeperBike, the service will be rolled out over the coming weeks,” Cooney said. He said that the company “showcased” its upcoming service this morning.He said that a meeting with Dublin City Council has been scheduled for Friday “where any concerns will be discussed”.Cooney said it is planned that the company will have ‘zone supervisors’ giving live demonstrations on how to correctly secure BleeperBikes on bike racks across Dublin.“If a user parks one of our bikes illegally they will be notified, if it happens a second time their account will be suspended,” he added.

Ready to fight City Hall with all they have. But then, City Hall backed off, at least for now.“The City council cancelled the meeting to approve the sale so the rally has been postponed as well”, says Brett Stang, owner of the only Skating rink left in the City of San Diego.Skateworld has been around for 45-years, generations of families have lifetime memories. It appears the city’s need for another ‘big box’ store is more important than a local landmark, and something seems fishy.City Council member Scott Sherman says it was simply a matter of “highest bid”. “They were part of the bidding process and we took the highest bid, they were not the highest bid”, says Sherman.But that might not be the case. The owners of Skateworld say they offered more than five million dollars for the land, it’s not worth nearly that much. But they also says they would have gone higher, if given the chance. They were not given the chance. “Skateworld and it’s investors were willing to go higher, we are still willing to go higher, but it stopped. It just stopped”, says Stang.KUSI has requested information about ‘why’ the council meeting was ‘suddenly cancelled”. The office of Georgette Gomez says the information is on the way.As for Civic San Diego, crickets. No answer, no response, no interest. Civic San Diego is the group created by the Mayor to sell off “taxpayer property”, otherwise called ‘City Land”. Since they conduct their business in the dark, we have requested some light. KUSI has filed a “Freedom of Information Request” to get the records and the various bids.Skateland is not just a revenue stream, it’s a pivotal part of that community. The only family entertainment within miles.So here we go again. It’s the Big Box versus the Little Guy. If the little guy ends up losing, we all want to know why.

Awareness can curb premature birth

first_imgDiscussants at a roundtable prior to world prematurity day at the CA Bhaban auditorium in Karwan Bazar on Thursday. Photo: Prothom AloAlthough Bangladesh attained remarkable success in curbing child mortality rate over the last 25 years, more than six hundred thousand are born prematurely each year in Bangladesh.  Awareness about health and nutrition of mothers is important to decrease premature birth, discussants at a roundtable observed on Thursday.Prothom Alo, in cooperation with UNICEF and Save the Children, organised the roundtable prior to world prematurity day on 17 November at the CA Bhaban auditorium in Karwan Bazar.The discussants, at the roundtable on the roles of family to prevent low birth weight and preterm birth, also pointed out that Kangaroo Mother Care (skin-to-skin contact between the preterm or low birth weight and the mother or the care-giver) facilities should be improved in maternity clinics in Bangladesh. Director general of health services Abul Kalam Azad stressed the need of awareness in community level to reduce neonatal mortality rate and overall improvement of pregnant mothers’ health.He also said Bangladesh is on the right track to attain United Nation’s sustainable development goal (SDG) regarding neonatal mortality rate well ahead of 2030.Director of health services Sultan Md Shamsuzzaman said, mortality rate of premature babies in the developed world is much lower in comparison with Bangladesh.“We must learn from them how they check the death of premature babies,” he added.UNICEF’s chief of health Maya Vandenent said, improving community clinic facilities can  positively change the overall healthcare system of Bangladesh.BSMMU’s neonatology department chairman  Abdul Mannan said that breastfeeding within one hour of an infant’s birth can significantly reduce many health-related neonatal problems.The family planning directorate’s deputy director Farid Uddin Ahmed, Bangladesh Shishu Hospital’s head of neonatalogy MAK Azad Chowdhury, Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Bangladesh’s (OGSB) president Laila Arjumad Banu, Brac’s programme manager Reshma Khanam, ICDDR’B senior director Shams El Arifeen, UNICEF’s health specialist Shamina Sharmin, MaMoni MNCSP’s Uzma Syed, Bangladesh Neonatal Forum’s president Tahmina Begum, USAID’s Iftekhar Rashid, among others, spoke at the programme. Prothom Alo associate editor Abdul Quaiyum moderated the programme.last_img read more

Xbox One S 4Kcapable slim console images leak

first_imgLate last week, Sony confirmed that the PS4 Neo is real, and a games console capable of 4K output, better PSVR support, and a machine meant to sit alongside the PS4, not replace it. Now we are hearing the first leaked details of Microsoft’s answer to the Neo, and it’s called the Xbox One S.All we have to go on so far is two leaked images, but they tell us a fair bit. The Xbox One S is the expected slim version of the Xbox One, but Microsoft is also taking the opportunity to upgrade the hardware inside it.The console itself is 40% smaller and expected to house the power brick internally, which is impressive if true and a big positive as far as I’m concerned. The S will be capable of 4K Ultra HD visual as well as High Dynamic Range. The hard drive has also received a much-needed upgrade to 2TB.A couple of other interesting changes are also set to be included in the box. Due to the smaller, slimmer nature of the console, Microsoft has decided to include a vertical stand. The new exterior design makes the Xbox One S a lot nicer to look at, so you may want to stand it vertically next to your TV rather than hiding it. Then there’s the controller, which Microsoft has “streamlined” whatever that means. It sounds like they’ve made it smaller.With the hardware upgrade it seems very unlikely the Xbox One S will carry a lower price point than the Xbox One, in fact, it may be higher. More performance, more storage space, and a redesign for a much smaller console all add up to a heavy new R&D investment by Microsoft. Should we expect a $400 asking price, or will Microsoft take the profit hit and price it at $300?last_img read more

is the main opposition in the Assembly MK Stalin the Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly was "stopped" near the War Memorial a few metres away from the Assembly complex and was "made to walk" to the House Also all the DMK legislators were "illegally evicted from the House when they sought for a secret ballot" the counselsubmitted NL Rajah appearing on behalf of the Advocates Forum For Social Justice which also wanted the trust vote to be declared null and void contended that all the MLAs of AIADMK who were kept in a resort before the trust vote were escorted to the Assembly in buses "which clearly showed that they were kept in illegal detention" He said that an FIR was pending against Palaniswami in connection with the detention of the MLAs The bench adjourned the case till February 27 for further hearing after the arguments The DMK had moved the Madras High Court on Monday seeking declaration of the confidence vote null and void as it was conducted in "contravention" of the Assembly rules However the decision to knock on the doors of judiciary is only a part of the DMK’s multi-pronged strategy to line up support against the appointment of Sasikala loyalist as the Tamil Nadu chief minister Earlier DMK leader MK Stalin had also urged the Governor to nullify the assembly proceedings of Saturday when Palaniswami won the confidence vote amid bedlam The party also announced its decision to move a no confidence motion against assembly Speaker P Dhanapal The governor has sought a report on the Assembly proceedings from the Tamil Nadu assembly Secretary Stalin

Rao to invoke his constitutional powers "to nullify the entire proceedings with a view to protect the spirit of democracy and the constitution" Stalin said the police was mobilised giving an impression of a "war-like situation" around the assembly complex and the voting took place amid an "atmosphere of terror" According to Stalin the AIADMK legislators belonging to the now jailed VK Sasikala camp were brought to the assembly from a resort "under tight security and they appeared to be under constant threat" Stalin said Speaker P Dhanapal did not respond to his request for a secret ballot on the confidence motion According to the DMK leader the party legislators had no other way but to stage a peaceful sit-in inside the house "The Speaker ordered expulsion of all the members of the DMK without following the procedure The police entered the house presumably on instructions given in advance by the Speaker "The police and the assembly guards forcibly evicted us from the house and in this process many of us sustained bleeding injuries "The other Opposition parties staged a walkout strongly protesting against the action of the Speaker" Stalin told Rao Meanwhile the DMK cadres have been trying to mobilise public support against Palaniswami’s appointment and a hunger protest has been planned to seek public support Stalin also said an appointment to meet President
