Extremists Extradited to Morocco Adhere to ISIS Interior Ministry

Rabat – Investigations led by the Central Bureau for Judiciary Investigations (BCIJ) with ISIS extremist supporters extradited to Morocco from France on August 28, 2016, revealed their complete adherence to ISIS’s strategy and terrorist ideology, the Interior Ministry said Thursday.One of those arrested was recruited by an ISIS’s leader on the Syrian-Iraqi scene, who called him to suspend his plan to join this hotbed of tension, in order to coordinate large-scale terrorist operations in France on behalf of the “Islamic state,” the ministry added in a statement.As part of this terror plot, this individual scouted out several public and sensitive sites in France, his country of residence, particularly those frequented by a lot of people during weekends, with a view to perpetrating attacks using firearms or vehicles with the intention of ramming into crowds or triggering fires to kill the biggest number of people possible. Moreover, the individual has joined ISIS’s broad campaign of incitement within ISIS supporters to carry out large-scale terrorist attacks in Morocco by targeting vital areas and elements of the various security services, in response to the fight led by these services against ISIS terror cells and ISIS-supporters at the national and the international levels.The two men will be brought to justice pending the completion of the probe led under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor’s office.With MAP read more

King Mohammed VI Calls for Regional Solidarity as IsDB Meets in

Rabat – King Mohammed VI called for collective action in remarks he sent to the annual meeting of the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) in Marrakech, which opened officially on April 5. The King’s message explained that IsDB member countries face a multitude of challenges and must collaborate to surmount them. “The aim is to serve our nations and contribute to economic development and to our peoples’ social advancement,” the King  said.Read Also: Islamic Development Bank to Hold Annual Meeting in MarrakechEach year, IsDB’s annual meeting gathers politicians, development specialists, and bank staff to deliberate on the latest matters of development. This year’s theme, “Transformation in a changing world,” is a reference to IsDB’s call for a new development strategy—one that intersects with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). IsDB is based in Saudi Arabia and has 57 member countries, though it works with Muslim communities worldwide. On April 3, it announced it would create a Global Muslim Philanthropy Fund for Children with UNICEF, in another sign of increased collaboration with the UN.The announcement that its 2019 meeting would take place in Marrakech cemented Morocco’s status as one of the bank’s strongest partners. Last year, the bank launched a multimillion dollar fund in Rabat for science and technology, and has since promised to increase its financial assistance to the kingdom over the next three years.While the IsDB has done much to promote solidarity and development in the Islamic world, the King said in a message his advisor Omar Kabbaj read to attendees, it must do more to push collaboration.“We believe that our progress and our development cannot be envisaged without the advancement of sister nations on the African continent,” he said. read more

Heads of the six main bodies of the UN meet to discuss

The Secretary-General and the Presidents of the General Assembly, Security Council, Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), Trusteeship Council and the International Court of Justice (ICJ) met on Thursday to exchange views, facilitate coordination and improve efficiency in the workings of the Organization, according to a press release.The meeting, which was initiated by Mr. Annan in 1998, also discussed progress made by the strengthened Human Rights Council and the recently established Peacebuilding Commission, as well as measures to expedite and enhance the workings of the ICJ. Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Jan Egeland, briefed the gathering on the UN response to humanitarian crises, and highlighted that changes in the nature and magnitude of humanitarian challenges required more strategic resourcing and closer coordination with non-UN actors.He also noted that the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), a key reform proposal of the Secretary-General, was a significant development that allowed the UN to deploy staff, goods and services immediately where needed, while also devoting much needed attention to forgotten crises.The CERF, which was launched in March to jump-start relief operations for natural and man-made disasters, has so far committed $174 million to more than 250 projects in 26 countries, the UN said earlier this month. read more

UN tribunal backs earlier decision to quash most convictions of Bosnian Croat

The appeals chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) ruled yesterday that it had “dismissed in its entirety” the request for review of the case of Tihomir Blaškic. Prosecutors had argued that the ICTY should review its judgement in the light of six new facts discovered, but the court found that these were not “new facts” as defined by its rules of procedure and evidence, but additional evidence in relation to facts considered earlier in the case. In March 2000, the court’s trial chamber sentenced Mr. Blaškic to 45 years’ jail after finding him guilty on 19 counts for war crimes and crimes against humanity for his actions as a commander of the Croatian Defence Council in central Bosnia and Herzegovina between 1992 and 1994. But in July 2004 the appeals chamber overturned all but three of the 19 convictions and reduced his sentence to nine years. Mr. Blaškic was granted early release the following month. At the appeal the judges said “an enormous amount of additional evidence” had emerged since the trial because Croatia had not cooperated previously and had not opened its archives until after the death of former President Franjo Tudjman in 1999. Mr. Blaškic had been accused, among other actions, of ordering the massacre of about 100 Muslims in the Bosnian village of Ahmici in April 1993. The villagers, who had been hiding in the cellars of several houses, were discovered and shot dead. The houses were then set on fire. But the ICTY ruled that, once the additional evidence was taken into account, it was not reasonable to find that Mr. Blaškic had control of some of the forces that participated in the massacre, or that his order to attack Ahmici was issued “with the clear intention that the massacre would be committed.” The judges also said the extra evidence showed there was a Muslim military presence in Ahmici and that it was reasonable for Mr. Blaškic to believe they could launch an attack. But the judges upheld the trial court’s finding that Mr. Blaškic was guilty of illegal detainment and the inhumane treatment of prisoners. He forced Muslim prisoners to dig trenches and build fortifications to use in operations by Bosnian Croats against Bosnian Muslims. The former general also used prisoners as human shields to protect his temporary military headquarters during fighting at Vitez in April 1993. read more

201516 NBA Preview This Could Be The Rockets Year

Here’s a case where I disagree with CARMELO, which projects Ty Lawson to produce about the same WAR as he did last season. The Rockets love what Lawson brings to their backcourt in terms of pushing the pace and creating for others. Expect his WAR to improve. And here’s how CARMELO sees the Rockets’ key players: Is this the beginning of the end for Dwight Howard? In 2013, he produced 8.1 wins above replacement, and his WAR has declined each year since. However, last season’s 1.6 WAR was a result of his playing in just 41 games because of injuries. Howard’s WAR should increase this season; it’s projected to be 3.3. But CARMELO has Howard on the downslope of his career: He turns 30 in December and has a history of injuries. Howard’s poor foul shooting doesn’t help his cause, making him a liability on the floor late in games. When healthy and on top of his game, he’s a dominant center, but CARMELO is skeptical, putting Howard in the “key role player” category. Before every game, Trevor Ariza (the Rockets’ third offensive option) plays EA Sports FIFA 16 on PlayStation. It relaxes him. He’ll lose some minutes to Lawson, but Patrick Beverley’s value to the Rockets has never been higher; he’s a defensive point guard who’s expected to create havoc this season. The Houston Rockets lost 180 man-games to injuries last season; only two teams, the Los Angeles Lakers and the Minnesota Timberwolves, had more players receive DNPs. And the Rockets still won 56 games — mostly because of shooting guard James Harden, who led the team in scoring 60 times while playing in 81 games. A healthy Rockets team should compete for a title, and while keeping the core group together was important, the trade for point guard Ty Lawson brings an added dimension to the offense. FiveThirtyEight’s CARMELO projects the Rockets to go 52-30. We’re inaugurating our NBA player projection system, CARMELO, with 2015-16 season previews for every team in the league. Check out the teams we’ve already previewed here. Learn more about CARMELO here. James Harden is one of the best players in the NBA — just check out his top five comparables. But the Rockets expect Harden to do less ball handling thanks to the addition of Lawson, and the team is trying to speed up the pace this season. Both those things may help Harden cut down on his turnovers. Lawson becomes the main ball handler, thus pushing Harden into more of a traditional two-guard role where the Rockets want him to catch and shoot, and play off the ball. Injuries slowed Terrence Jones’s game down, but in training camp Rockets coach Kevin McHale said he’s making quicker and smarter decisions, which is a positive step. Jones is expected to start at power forward this year.Read more: 2015-16 NBA Previews read more

EYEWITNESS What is…

Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedEmancipation Messages 2018August 1, 2018In “latest news”EYEWITNESS: Why give up…July 31, 2018In “EYEWITNESS”EYEWITNESS: Free…July 30, 2018In “EYEWITNESS” …real emancipation?Your Eyewitness is getting some not quite comfortable vibes about what “Emancipation” means to some people. Now, the word itself means “to free” or “to liberate”…and we all know Africans were enslaved for hundreds of years by Europeans to labour on plantations; and finally, they were “freed” on August 1, 1838 in the British Empire. Slavery continued elsewhere – like in the US, where they had to fight a civil war in 1863 to free their slaves. In Brazil, which took over 40% of the slaves brought into the New World, slavery wasn’t ended till 1888!!In countries like Brazil and the US, where slaves were a minority, Emancipation might’ve given the ex-slaves formal freedom, but in so many ways, there were so many restrains on their rights as citizens, one would be hard-pressed to call them “free”. Imagine, it wasn’t until the 1960s that, in the US South, African Americans could even ENTER some restaurants. Dr Cheddi Jagan, who studied in the US between 1938 and 1943, observed these restrictions first hand, and was permanently scarred by the experience.But the slave experience went far beyond the physical constraints on the slaves; there were the more insidious and damaging mental aspects. What Bob Marley was to call “mental slavery” – and which controls the minds of most, 180 years after “Emancipation” — began with the insistence of the Europeans that Africans, at the very best, were not equal to them in their mental and cultural facilities; and at worse, weren’t even quite “human”. The rest of “coloured” humanity was then placed on a scale where the upper end was European and the lower end African. And that’s something still deeply embedded in so many aspects of the Western Education, which is our standard.However, we can rail all we want about what goes on in the US or Britain…but what about right here in our neck of the woods? Back when Walter Rodney was around, he shook up our just-independent British territories by showing that most of the leaders who’d inherited the “British mantle” took the description VERY literally. In Jamaica, where he was teaching by 1968 (just 50 years ago!), he showed how PM Shearer was actually “anti-African” in his orientation by suppressing the efforts of the Rastafarian community to create a lifestyle more consonant with their African Heritage.Today, we see the remnants of this kind of mental slavery when our governments go along with the sale of alcohol and tobacco under regulated conditions, but dig their heels in against the controlled sale of ganja, a sacramental herb used by the Rastafarians!Only when we free ourselves from mental slavery will we be free!!…this duty-free giveaway?Your Eyewitness is quite bemused by the episodic scandals involving “duty free” vehicles in this country. That NYTimes reporter being pilloried right, left and centre after writing about our “sh*thole” country somehow missed this distinguishing feature of “shitholeness”! Imagine cheating to bring in USED cars!! In your Eyewitness’s opinion, the entire scheme’s a recipe for encouraging corruption.Imagine, you have a country where the average ANNUAL salary is charitably $1million. Now with the total “duty” on vehicles — even with the “reconditioned” euphemism used to cover the “used car” tag – amounting to an average of $3 to $10 million, can you imagine the inducement for corruption?We’re talking about raking in 3-10 years of wages in one fell (corrupt) swoop!! But in this latest Nortonion caper, your Eyewitness thinks the corruption was made just a bit TOO OBVIOUS for even the jaded AFC Ministers Ramjattan and Gaskin.To some folks, this might be a sign of some backbone developing in these invertebrates.But, as Darwin said, that’ll take millions and millions of years!!…this Speaker’s power?In England, their Parliament retained sovereignty — unlike ours, where the PEOPLE are supposed to be sovereign. But a new principle’s being pushed by the PNC-Government – SOVEREIGNTY OF THE SPEAKER!!The man certainly holds himself above the law!! read more

La Corée du Sud veut renforcer sa lutte contre la pêche illégale

first_imgLa Corée du Sud veut renforcer sa lutte contre la pêche illégaleAprès le meurtre d’un garde-côte par un pêcheur chinois, la Corée du Sud a décidé d’étendre son dispositif de lutte contre la pêche illégale, en équipant ses garde-côtes d’armes à feu et en intégrant des militaires aux équipes de surveillanceA l’heure où de plus en plus d’espèces marines sont menacées, de nombreux pays ont décidé de renforcer leur contrôle de le pêche et surtout de lutter contre la pratique illégale afin de limiter les prises. Une lutte que menait déjà la Corée du Sud dont les eaux sont très fréquentées par les bateaux chinois. Mais alors que les affrontements étaient de plus en plus violents entre les pêcheurs et les équipes de surveillance, le 12 décembre la lutte a pris une tournure tragique avec la mort d’un garde-côte poignardé par un pêcheur chinois. À lire aussiUn énorme crocodile surprend un aventurier en pleine partie de pêcheAujourd’hui, le pays a ainsi décidé de renforcer considérablement son action en équipant les patrouilles en mer Jaune d’armes à feu et en intégrant des militaires aux équipes de surveillance, comme l’ont annoncé les autorités coréennes. Pour cela, le Bureau du Premier ministre a promis d’investir 932,4 milliards de wons (620,77 millions d’euros) entre 2012 et 2015 pour mieux équiper les garde-côtes. “Seuls deux membres des équipes de huit personnes sur les embarcations rapides avaient des armes à feu. Depuis mercredi, les huit sont armés”, a ainsi expliqué Lim Jong-Ryong, responsable du Bureau cité par l’AFP.”Les directives vont en outre être simplifiées pour autoriser l’utilisation des armes à feu dès que les garde-côtes sentent leur vie menacée”, a-t-il ajouté précisant que des forces spéciales vont également être recrutées pour former des équipes spéciales d’attaques maritimes. Celles-ci passeront de 342 à 533 membres. Par ailleurs, les patrouilles en mer Jaune disposeront de bateaux plus puissants et plus nombreux.Selon le Bureau du Premier ministre, jusqu’à 3.000 bateaux chinois ont pratiqué la pêche illégale chaque jour, d’avril à mai et d’octobre à décembre cette année, dans la zone économique exclusive de Corée du Sud. Un quota qui ne semble pas diminuer alors que Séoul a demandé à plusieurs reprises à Pékin de prendre des mesures pour empêcher cette pêche illégale par ses citoyens. Cette année, les garde-côtes ont ainsi arrêté 475 embarcations contre 370 en 2010.Le 31 décembre 2011 à 09:52 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

A Closer Look at BrowserBased Microsoft 365

first_img Register Now » Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 6 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals For all their potential, cloud-based application services such as Google Docs can still be downright spartan when it comes to software features. Yes, their cost is low or free in most cases, and their easy-to-use collaboration tools provide small businesses with a good first step toward building a mobile or remote workforce. But the feature sets of browser-based services still pale in comparison to full software suites such as Microsoft Office, which provides a wealth of tools and virtually endless customization of documents.Yet cloud services are adding new users every day, and their products continue to improve, which makes them a long-term threat to Microsoft’s profitable franchise. To head off its rivals, Microsoft has entered the market for cloud services targeted at small businesses. Earlier this year, the company launched a Web-based version of Office, called Office 365, which emerged from beta testing in April, priced at $6 per user per month.When we began putting Office 365 through its paces, we found that the new versions of its ubiquitous applications, namely Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook, were reasonably high-performing. Yet Microsoft also added new programs custom built for the cloud, including Team Sites, for document sharing, and Lync, for online collaboration. The company also rolled out a new in-document sharing technology built into the cloud versions of its Office applications.Over the past several weeks, my assistant Alex and I have been test-driving these new tools. While they hold the promise of bringing an integrated, full-featured Office suite to small businesses over the Web, several of these new features aren’t ready for prime time. What follows is a look at a few we tested and what we found.Related: Review — Microsoft Office 365 for Small-Business Users in the CloudTeam SitesWhat it is: The Team Sites application that comes with Office 365 offers a secure, easy-to-edit internal website that team members can use to post messages, share documents and gather information such as how-to documents and contact numbers. Think of it as a virtual company Intranet that is simple to create and accessible from anywhere.What you might like about it: The Team Sites main page has a bulletin board for team members to post announcements and access shared documents and text. Adding additional pages to the Team Site is easy. They can be created using a basic page-builder tool which is more or less a Word document. Team Sites also has a search function that can be handy as your company’s online presence grows.What you might not like: The pages on Team Sites are a great idea in theory, but somebody in your company will have to build them from scratch. That’s not hard — it’s essentially a blank Word document — but it takes time and common agreement about what it should look like. If you start slapping up a document in Team Sites without input, confusion can ensue. As a communication tool, the bulletin board is simplistic and lacks the ability to add replies or create threads for different topics. Facebook, it’s not.Related: The Man Behind Google Docs on Opportunities in the CloudMicrosoft says that the features it built into Team Site were specifically tailored to the needs of small businesses and it has no plans to add new features.Microsoft LyncWhat it is: Lync is an online meeting application that loads directly onto a user’s desktop, as is traditional with Microsoft products. When it works, Lync lets team members collaborate in real time using instant messaging, video, online voice calling and screen sharing. It also plays a role in document sharing and other collaboration features in Office 365.What you might like: For PC-based shops, the tool offers an effective way for groups to collaborate on work tasks in a secure, centrally-administered environment. We liked how meetings can be created instantly from an email conversation or how video conferencing and screen sharing can be initiated quickly.What you might not like: Lync does not work well across platforms. As of now there is no Mac version — Mac users can participate by email invitation only. Then they must use a stripped-down Web application that cuts out most of Lync’s useful features. For example, while Mac users can see the host’s desktop and chat, they can’t video chat, share their own desktop or collaborate in documents, making Lync more or less an instant messaging tool for them.Microsoft says it plans to release a full-featured version of Lync later this year.Shared Office DocumentsWhat it is: Office 365 allows users to collaborate on documents, through a share button placed directly in the full versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint running on a user’s PC. In theory, it opens the door to the holy grail of collaboration: all the features of a sophisticated document management system in a document that still can be shared in real time.What you might like: The sharing function allows you to access a first-rate email client, word processor and spreadsheet tool in a way that can be accessed by all members of your team — as they work on it. In the brief glimpses of functionality we saw with this tool, it has the potential for changing how you handle documents in your business.What you might not like: To put it bluntly, document sharing is, as of now, nothing more than a concept for a smaller firms. First, it requires an updated version of Microsoft Office which supports Office 365 and which must be downloaded and installed. It’s a major upgrade and doing it took both Alex and I more than an hour each. Next, we spent at least another hour of trial and error, learning how to save properly, share documents and collaborate in any meaningful way.If you also factor in the limited Apple OS support, the clunky relationship between it and Microsoft’s SharePoint servers, getting this to work requires an investment that I can’t see an average small business making.The company says that, supported properly, sharing works well. But Microsoft also says it plans to smooth out the process of how these features will work online in future editions.”We have some work to do head of us on this,” says John Betz, director of online services for Microsoft. “The idea for Office 365 is to be able to do it all from any document, web browser, device or computer. The goal here is to make that as easy as possible for end-user.”Bottom line: Microsoft Office 365 offers reasonable collaboration options for Microsoft-based shops. Many businesses will benefit from the basic Web-based tools found in Word and Excel. And it’s a product certainly worth testing. But for the advanced features, it’s possible that only shops that actually need those specific functions – such as those in publishing or advanced document management — may find the tools worth the hassle.Related: The Pros and Cons of Cloud-Based Amazon Web Services Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.

Use of TC properties could be passed to refugee descendants

first_imgA bill providing for the right of children and grandchildren of refugees who live in Turkish Cypriot property to use the house after the original users pass away is to be soon tabled to the House plenum to vote, MPs said on Tuesday.According to the House refugee committee, the bill, tabled by Disy, Akel and Diko, aims to stop evictions of children or grandchildren of refugees who had been given Turkish Cypriot property to live in.Granting the right to close relatives to continue to use the property, however, will also depend on a number of criteria and as long as those concerned have not received any state aid for housing.Currently, MPs said, the property is recovered by the guardian of Turkish Cypriot property – the interior ministry – even if it is used by children or grandchildren of the deceased, so that it can give it to other applicants.The head of the committee, Akel’s Skevi Koukouma, said that the interior ministry spends around €120,000 annually for evictions from Turkish Cypriot property.At the moment, she said, there are 50 cases concerning the recovery of Turkish Cypriot properties by the guardian to be given to other families, despite that there are close relatives of the deceased wishing to continue living there.“Our aim is for children and grandchildren of refugees who have passed away, and who had not received any aid, to be entitled (to use) that residence,” Koukouma said.In the case there are many people wishing to live in the same house, she said, the choice will be made based on socio-economic criteria.Koukouma expressed disappointment that the state refugee policy is “is based solely on the management of the Turkish Cypriot properties and especially the residences, which are the only ones left to solve the housing problem of the refugees.”She also said that everyone agreed at their latest meeting that the eviction procedure was unacceptable and problematic.“Unfortunately, the interior ministry continues to defend this procedure,” she said.MPs also heard that the interior ministry’s service for the management of Turkish Cypriot property is seriously understaffed and cannot cope with the increased workload they have to tackle.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoMBA Degrees | Search AdsMBA Programs Online – See For YourselfMBA Degrees | Search AdsUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
