Govt Spokesperson Government Recognizes Shortcomings in Human Rights Policies

Rabat – Facing recurring criticism from international human rights organizations on the condition of human rights in the county, the Government spokesperson responded yesterday saying that the Government, “does not neglect or deny the presence of certain weaknesses” and continues to remedy these shortcomings.“Morocco’s willingness is firm in handling responsibly and vigorously the issue of human rights,” said Mustapha El Khalfi during a Rabat press briefing on Thursday following the Government’s cabinet meeting.Against claims that the government is turning a blind eye to human rights, El Khalfi said that, “on the contrary, the Kingdom’s approach is based on the responsible handling of this issue.”  He explained that Morocco has adopted a national plan of action for the promotion of human rights to correct anomalies and deficiencies within the government’s human rights policy.Progress is being made, he said. The National Human Rights Council (CNDH) established, for the first time, a national mechanism for the prevention of torture, reinforcing the Kingdom’s long-standing policy in this area.Meanwhile, extensive work is underway in partnership with civil society institutions working in this field, as well as at the level of the Justice Ministry and the State Secretariat for Human Rights, in order to promote respect for human rights and put into practice the national plan of action. The plan, first adopted in 2008, includes more than 400 measures which represent the country’s framework for strengthening human rights across the nation, he concluded.On January 25, the Government categorically denied allegations made in a 2017 Human Rights Watch report that revealed several alleged reversals in the condition of human rights and civil liberties in Morocco. read more

UN food agency faces 750 million shortfall as it bids to feed

In late February, WFP announced that it required an additional $500 million, on top of its original appeal for this year of $2.9 billion, to carry out its efforts, but surging food prices have led WFP to revise that figure upwards to $756 million.The cost of rice in Thailand, for example, swelled from $460 per ton on 3 March to $780 five weeks later.WFP warned that prices could rice even higher. “We are not looking at a picture anymore, we are watching a movie,” the agency’s Christiane Berthiaume told reporters in Geneva today. To date, $900 million has been received towards WFP’s original appeal.In a related development, Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has accepted an invitation from Jacques Diouf, Director-General of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), to attend a summit on the topic of food security in Rome.He confirmed his attendance today at the start of the 30th FAO Regional Conference for Latin America and the Caribbean, noting that the UN agency has a crucial role to play in tackling the issue.The three-day event, which will start on 3 June at FAO Headquarters, “must take place in a rational manner, without being clouded by emotions or left or right-wing ideologies,” the President said. “We need scientific foundations so that people can discuss solutions to the crisis to offer to the world in years ahead.”Dr. Diouf said the upcoming summit will be a “golden opportunity to adopt policies, strategies and programmes that will enable us to face the major challenges currently confronting us which, aside from the price surges, include the question of agricultural production, especially in poor countries.” 18 April 2008The recent drastic rise in food prices means the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) now needs more than $750 million to meet its commitment to feed the world’s 73 million hungry people this year. read more

Sri Lanka urged to implement policy to protect children

The call, made on Safer Internet Day, comes following a recent UNICEF poll of young people, which received more than 1 million responses over five weeks from more than 160 countries, and suggestions from a series of student-led #ENDviolence Youth Talks held around the world. In it, young people provided thoughtful responses about what they and their parents, teachers and policymakers could do to keep them safe — and kindness stood out as one of the most powerful means to prevent bullying and cyberbullying.The Internet has become a fixture of young people’s lives regardless of income level. According to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), while 94 per cent of young people aged 15-24 in developed countries are online, more than 65 per cent of young people in developing countries are online. This is well ahead of the pace of Internet usage among the general population. According to the Ending Violence in Childhood Global Report 2017, 38 per cent of children in Sri Lanka aged 13 to 15 have experienced bullying, while 47 per cent of these children have also reported having physical fights.In honor of the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, UNICEF is also calling for renewed urgency and cooperation to put children’s rights at the forefront of digital efforts. As part of this, UNICEF is implementing programs to leverage the internet’s promise of connectivity and education on behalf of the world’s children. For example, UNICEF’s Internet of Good Things aims to bridge the digital divide and build knowledge in societies by hosting mobile-packaged content designed to make life-saving and life-improving information available for free, even on low-end devices.The Convention on the Rights of the Child came into being in 1989. Since then, 194 state parties including Sri Lanka have ratified it, making it the most widely accepted human rights treaty in history.  Sri Lanka ratified the CRC in 1991, which then led to the establishment of a National Children’s Charter based on the CRC, which was approved by the cabinet, enabling its application into state policy. (Colombo Gazette) In extreme situations, cyberbullying has led to suicide. On Safer Internet Day, UNICEF is reminding everyone that kindness – both online and off – is a responsibility that begins with each of us. “We all need to now accelerate its implementation to ensure that every child in Sri Lanka is protected from violence, abuse and exploitation,” UNICEF Sri Lanka Representative, Tim Sutton said today. Sri Lanka has been urged to implement its proposed policy to protect children from violence and abuse.The UN Children’s agency, UNICEF, noted that Sri Lanka must be commended for developing a National Plan of Action, of which the online safety of children has been made a priority. UNICEF cautioned today of the dangers posed by online violence, cyberbullying and digital harassment for the 70.6 per cent of young people aged 15 to 24 years old who are online globally, and called for concerted action to tackle and prevent violence against children and young people online. Worldwide, half of the total population, regardless of age, is online. According to UNICEF’s 2018 Report ‘Keeping Children Safe and Empowered Online’, 52.8 per cent of young people in Sri Lanka access the internet – with the average age of first access being 13 years.This online proliferation comes with increased risk. According to data from UNESCO on the prevalence of cyberbullying in high income countries, the proportion of children and adolescents who are affected by cyberbullying ranges from 5 per cent to 21 per cent, with girls appearing to be more likely to experience cyberbullying than boys.Cyberbullying can cause profound harm as it can quickly reach a wide audience, and can remain accessible online indefinitely, virtually ‘following’ its victims online for life. Bullying and cyberbullying feed into each other, forming a continuum of damaging behaviour. Victims of cyberbullying are more likely to use alcohol and drugs and skip school than other students. They also are more likely to receive poor grades and experience low self-esteem and health problems. read more

Stocks slide after bond market warns again of recession

NEW YORK — Stocks sank Wednesday after the bond market threw up one of its last remaining warning flags on the economy.The yield on the 10-year Treasury briefly dropped below the two-year Treasury’s yield Wednesday morning. It’s rare for short-term yields to rise above longer-term ones, and when it happens, market watchers call it “an inverted yield curve” and brace for the possibility of a recession hitting in a year or two.The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped as much as 475 points in the first few minutes of trading before recouping some of its losses.Weak economic data around the world also unnerved investors, who flipped back into selling mode after driving a rally Tuesday on hopeful signals that the U.S.-China trade war may not be worsening so much.Germany, Europe’s largest economy, shrank 0.1% in the spring from the first three months of the year due to the global trade war and troubles in the auto industry. Data from China also showed that factory output, retail spending and investment weakened in July for the world’s second-largest economy.“The bad news for global economies is stacking up much faster than most economists thought, so trying to keep up is exhausting,” Kevin Giddis, head of fixed income capital markets at Raymond James, wrote in a report.The S&P 500 fell 1.7%, as of 10 a.m. Eastern time, giving back all of the prior day’s jump after the U.S. delayed some of the tariffs threatened on Chinese imports. The Dow lost 435 points, or 1.7%, to 25,841, and the Nasdaq composite lost 1.9%.“The relief rally inspired by the Trump administration delaying tariffs on some Chinese imports was short lived – blink and you missed it,” said Fiona Cincotta, senior market analyst at City Index.Much of the market’s focus was on the U.S. yield curve, which has historically been one of the more reliable recession indicators.If all this talk about yield curves sounds familiar, it should. Other parts of the curve have already inverted, beginning late last year. But each time, some market watchers cautioned not to make too much of it. Academics tend to pay the most attention to the spread between the three-month Treasury and the 10-year Treasury, which inverted in the spring. Traders often pay more attention to the two-year and 10-year spread.Each of the last five times the two-year and 10-year Treasury yields have inverted, a recession has followed. The average amount of time is around 22 months, according to Raymond James’ Giddis.The indicator isn’t perfect, though, and it’s given false signals in the past. Some market watchers also say the yield curve may be a less reliable indicator this time because technical factors may be distorting longer-term yields, such as negative bond yields abroad and the Federal Reserve’s holdings of $3.8 trillion in Treasurys and other investments on its balance sheet.Macy’s plunged 17.9%, the sharpest loss in the S&P 500, after it slashed its profit forecast for the year. The retailer’s profit for the latest quarter fell short of analysts’ forecasts as it cut prices on unsold items.Energy stocks also sank sharply, hurt by another drop in the price of crude oil on worries that a weakening global economy will drag down demand. National Oilwell Varco lost 5.3%, and Schlumberger fell 5.2%. The price of benchmark U.S. crude slid $1.94, or 3.4%, to $55.16 per barrel. Brent crude, the international standard, lost $1.87 to $59.43.In overseas markets, Germany’s DAX dropped 2% following the weak German economic data. France’s CAC 40 fell 1.9%, and the FTSE 100 in London lost 1.4%.In Asia, Japan’s Nikkei 225 rose 1%, the Kospi in South Korea gained 0.7% and the Hang Seng in Hong Kong added 0.1%.Markets have largely been in a spin cycle since Trump announced on Aug. 1 that he would impose 10% tariffs on about $300 billion in Chinese imports, which would be on top of 25% tariffs already in place on $250 billion in imports.On Tuesday, responding to pressure from businesses and growing fears that a trade war is threatening the U.S. economy, the Trump administration is delaying most of the import taxes it planned to impose on Chinese goods and is dropping others altogether.Investors are still worried that the trade war between the world’s two largest economies may drag on through the 2020 U.S. election and cause more economic damage.For all its whipsawing up and down, the S&P 500 remains within 5% of its record, which was set in late July.___AP Writer Pan Pylas contributed from London, and AP Business Writer Damian J.

Dundalk man McElroy excels with Saracens after U20s World Cup dream was

first_img HAVING FOUGHT HARD every step of the way from Dundalk to the Ireland U20 squad, Tadgh McElroy was on the verge of fulfilling a dream and going to the World Cup to wear the green jersey with pride last year.But at the very last moment, his dream was snatched away.The dynamic hooker hadn’t finalised his plans for after the 2017 World Rugby U20 Championship in Georgia and the IRFU gave him an ultimatum. McElroy had a superb U20 Six Nations last year. Source: James Crombie/INPHOReigning Europen and Premiership champions Saracens had made an offer to McElroy, but the IRFU wanted him to sign for Connacht – his home province Leinster having opted for another player to take the hooker spot in their academy set-up.“It was horrible,” says McElroy, who is now part of Saracens’ academy and impressing for the English side. “Basically, there were rumours that I had signed for Saracens, but I hadn’t signed for anybody. I hadn’t signed a thing.“I went to the airport to meet the squad and I was told I had to sign for Connacht that day or I was not getting on the plane.“I rang my agent and he told me not to make a decision, ‘We will have a chat, this is crazy.’ I said I totally agreed and that my head was in a shambles and I couldn’t make a decision.“They said, ‘If you don’t sign today, you ain’t coming.’ I told them I really wanted to go, had trained hard and was in a good place, but they said, ‘We’re only taking players that will be playing in Ireland.’“I told them I wasn’t turning my back on anyone, I just wanted to go and enjoy the campaign and do my best before coming back and making my decision. They said, ‘You’ve already signed for Saracens,’ but I just said I hadn’t signed a thing.“They told me I wasn’t coming. I said, ‘If that’s your decision, it’s very immature, but I’ve got to respect your decision.’ I went home. It was crazy. I was upset and annoyed. I wanted to be out there with the boys.”It was a very difficult experience for a young man who had played for Ireland at U18 and U19 levels before excelling in last year’s U20 Six Nations, scoring three tries as he started all five games.Making it even more difficult for McElroy were false rumours that he was opting out of playing for Ireland because he wanted to play for England instead – qualifying for them through his London-born grandmother.“There were a lot of lies going around, a lot of stuff that wasn’t true,” says the Dundalk man. McElroy in Saracens colours. Source: Saracens“I was there to go and play for Ireland, but I wasn’t picked to go at the end. There’s only so much you can do. My bag was packed and I was ready to go.“It was only the following week that I said to my agent that I’d sign for Saracens. What had happened put the final nail in the coffin.”Ireland’s loss has certainly been Saracens’ gain, with McElroy quickly settling into the club and making his first-team debut in the Anglo-Welsh Cup, with a maiden start against Exeter at the beginning of this month following two substitute appearances.The 20-year-old has been extremely close to Sarries’ Premiership matchday squads too, acting as their 24th man a handful of times. The club has already offered him a one-year contract extension to his academy deal and life is good for McElroy.“I couldn’t go to any other club where I have people like Jamie George, Christopher Tolofua and Schalk Brits giving me tips, going through my analysis with me, telling me what I need to focus on,” says McElroy.“I can’t get that anywhere else and I’m extremely lucky to be here with some of the best players in the world.”Dundalk RFC is where it all started for McElroy at the age of eight, his father Stanley – a major influence on his career – having previously played for the club.Ireland U18 Clubs coach Wayne Mitchell, who now works with the IRFU’s Exiles branch, brought McElroy to a tournament in France in 2014 and McElroy was back again a year later as the U18s travelled to Gloucester for the Three Union Festival.A small handful of players from that group have gone into provincial academies, including Liam Coombes and Ciarán Frawley, but McElroy felt he always had to work harder coming out of the youths game, rather than the schools system.“I’m proud as punch to be from Dundalk and I’ll always be a Dundalk player,” says McElroy of his hometown club. “I’ve never played for Dundalk’s senior team but someday I will, that’s a goal of mine to go back and do it, they helped me so much. McElroy is learning huge amounts from Jamie George. Source: Billy Stickland/INPHOWhen McElroy finished school, he was hoping for a move to a higher level in the club game and although it was heartbreaking to leave Dundalk, he was “blown away” when Mike Ruddock called him with an offer to join Lansdowne FC.“Getting tips from Mike, playing in the AIL and training with the first team in Lansdowne got me physically ready for the Ireland U19s season because you’re playing against men rather than underage rugby.”2017 brought McElroy into the national U20 team set-up under Nigel Carolan and he was one of the most impressive Irish players during last year’s Six Nations campaign.And yet, McElroy says he feels he could have offered more.McElroy had been part of Leinster’s sub-academy at the start of the season but had what he describes as a “misunderstanding” with one of the S&C coaches, which saw him leave the set-up.“I loved the Six Nations, I loved every minute with the boys. But I didn’t feel like I hit my full potential. A lot of people don’t know this, but I wasn’t training with Leinster for the two months before that, I was just training with Lansdowne and doing my bit at home.”He pays tribute to Ruddock, Lansdowne and his father for helping him to be in shape for the U20s even without provincial involvement.“My Dad does a huge, huge amount that no one sees, ” says McElroy. “He does a lot to keep me in shape, getting my diet right. He doesn’t get enough credit because he’s been big in all of this.”Still, a fine Six Nations campaign had McElroy in good stead for the U20 World Cup, but he wasn’t offered a chance to return to the Leinster set-up as they opted to bring his fellow U20 international Ronan Kelleher into their academy system.McElroy says there were “no bridges burned” when he left the sub-academy and he doesn’t hold any ill feeling towards his native province at all. McElroy describes Mark McCall as ‘very professional’. Source: James Crombie/INPHOHis agent at Navy Blue instead presented him with offers from Saracens and Connacht’s academies and when the IRFU had left him in a difficult position, he took a few more days before deciding that his future lay with the back-to-back Champions Cup winners.The Saracens academy train full-time with Mark McCall’s senior team, meaning McElroy is learning from many of the very best players in the world on a daily basis.“We train with the first team week in, week out,” explains McElroy. “We do units together, have breakfast and lunch together and the only thing we don’t do all together is the gym because there are is large numbers of guys, so we’re split into groups.”Saracens place a huge emphasis on the person as well as the player, and their ‘personal development programme’ has been a contributing factor in creating a very happy squad culture under McCall.For McElroy, his off-field development has involved studying to be a gym instructor through an online Setanta College course.“Saracens pride themselves on being like a family and you really do feel part of that atmosphere. Sarries makes you a better person on and off the field. They’ve got me into doing my uni work.“Anyone who knows me knows I wouldn’t be big into uni or going to uni, but now I’m loving it and I’m passing all my grades and keeping up to date with that, as well as getting my opportunities with rugby.”In terms of the rugby, McElroy is being pushed to improve every day. The ‘A’ League is his “bread and butter” and he has even played in the Saracens Storm’s back row when they have had injuries there, impressing with big carrying and tackling workloads.“Coming over, I was expecting high standards but over here 100% is not good enough,” says the hooker. “Saracens talk about the next 5% and they judge themselves on that extra 5%. We say that when it’s too hard for the opposition, it’s just right for us.“The standard in training is through the roof. I’ve seen a week go by and literally two balls be dropped – it’s counted. McElroy wants to play senior international rugby. Source: Morgan Treacy/INPHO“It’s crazy and the guys work really hard but off the field, the big guys like Will Skelton, Liam Williams, Jamie George – they’re all down to earth and they like helping the academy guys out.”Having already exceeding his expectations for his first season with Sarries by featuring in the Anglo-Welsh Cup, McElroy is hoping to continue his upward trajectory and, while remaining realistic, he is targeting a Premiership debut sooner rather than later.McElroy says he hasn’t heard from the IRFU since the debacle before the U20s trip to Georgia and though he is Dundalk through and through, he isn’t against the idea of playing for his grandmother’s country of birth if he is not wanted by Ireland.“A lot of people were talking about England last year because my mam’s mam is English. At the end of the day, if Ireland don’t want to pick me and another country does, I want to play at the highest level I can.“To be honest, what happened just put fire in my belly to train harder. I’m lucky to have come out the other side and I want to prove a few people wrong.”The42 is on Instagram! Tap the button below on your phone to follow us!

Turkish reports suggest Barbaros to leave Cyprus next week for Kastellorizo

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A day after reports in the Turkish press indicated that Turkey’s seismic vessel Barbaros will withdraw from Cypriot waters next week, fueling hopes of a possible resumption of Cyprus talks, fresh reports over the weekend suggested that the Barbaros is heading for Greek territorial waters.A Turkish maritime order, or Navigational Telex (Navtex), that was issued illegally in October to dispatch the Barbaros to Cyprus’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) will not be renewed, according to the reports. However, a new Navtex is to be issued for January 1 to 10, dispatching the Barbaros to the area between the Dodecanese islands of Rhodes and Kastellorizo for participation in an anti-submarine exercise.Although the prospect of the Barbaros entering Greek territorial waters is regarded as unlikely, diplomatic sources were not ruling out such a scenario.The Barbaros has been within Cyprus’s EEZ since October 20 when it entered the area amid Turkish protests over Cypriot authorities launching licensed oil and gas drilling activities in the area.The violation by the Barbaros prompted Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades to pull out of the latest round of United Nations-mediated negotiations aimed at reunifying the divided island.Initial reports in the Turkish media quoted Turkish-Cypriot negotiator Ergun Olgun as saying that the Barbaros would withdraw from Cyprus’s EEZ on December 30, following the completion of its exploration activities. According to the reports, Olgun said the move would pave the way for the resumption of stalled talks.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Clark County school officials pore over state budget details

first_imgSenate OKs budget in final hoursLocal projects funded in state’s capital budgetNewcomer Wylie played skepticLocal school leaders on Wednesday sifted through details of the final budget deal adopted Tuesday by state legislators in Olympia.What they found brought a mixture of relief, resignation and frustration.Important to know: Not all portions of the state’s two-year budget, relative to grades K-12 education, were complete. And the fine-print details mean a few more days before budget impacts can be proclaimed with any confidence, leaders said.Lawmakers on Wednesday tussled over whether to slash per-pupil state support for students enrolled in alternative learning programs by either 10 or 20 percent, or by some other amount. Resting on the outcome was a potential half-million-dollar swing in state funding for Vancouver Public Schools, said budget director Steve Olsen.Battle Ground administrators remained on pins and needles.“It’s difficult to say what the impact will be, because we have so many alternative learning programs,” said Superintendent Shonny Bria.They include the CAM junior and senior high schools, the HomeLink and River HomeLink campuses, and the alternative Summit View High School. That’s about 1,500 full-time equivalent students, nearly one-eighth of Battle Ground’s 12,500 students.What Battle Ground does know: Scuttling voter-approved Initiative 728 and grades K-4 supplemental dollars will bring larger class sizes, about two students more per classroom, said budget director Mary Beth Lynn.It’s a similar story across Clark County, where districts already issued tentative pink slips to some teachers and know they might be shuffling many school lineups.last_img read more

2M bail in Seattle weapons arrest

first_imgSEATTLE — A Nevada man is being held on $2 million bail after his arrest near the University of Washington in a truck containing anti-government propaganda, multiple weapons and maps to three Seattle campuses.Dan Donahoe of the King County prosecutor’s office said Justin Jasper made an initial court appearance Friday afternoon.King County Judge Arthur R. Chapman said Friday that he set such a high bail for Jasper because he considered the 21-year-old a flight risk and a threat to the community.Montana authorities say Jasper had stolen both a pickup truck and guns from a truck driver who offered him a place to stay in Butte, Mont., for the past month.The truck driver reported on Wednesday that he returned home from a trip to find guns stolen from his residence and his pickup truck gone, said Butte-Silver Bow Undersheriff George Skuletich.At the bail hearing in Seattle, a prosecutor said authorities found six firebombs in the vehicle, plus several knives, including a machete, and several guns.They also found a recording of a podcast that appears to have Jasper expressing support for the Brazilian revolution.Jasper was arrested Wednesday after University of Washington police were told to watch for truck that had been stolen out of Montana.University of Washington police had seen Jasper sleeping in a truck near campus Tuesday night, the day before they received the stolen vehicle notice. University of Washington police chief John Vinson said nothing came up in their system when they checked the plates on Tuesday.Butte authorities are looking into possible charges, but none has been filed, Skuletich said.Vinson said the man had with him a scoped rifle, shotgun and fewer than 10 Molotov cocktails.“We have no idea what his intentions are,” he said. “This is a very active investigation. We’re trying to rule out everything at this point.”Vinson said Jasper was not cooperating with police, but said there did not appear to be any threat to the university campus.last_img read more

Microsoft hopes to improve Cortana in thirdparty apps

first_img1:23 Share your voice Josh Miller/CNET Despite the significant lead that voice assistants from Google, Apple and Amazon have over Microsoft’s offering, Cortana isn’t giving up. A Microsoft patent application published late last month details plans to better incorporate Cortana into third-party apps. The tech giant said it wants “an extensibility client that exposes an interface and service that enables third-party applications to be integrated with the digital assistant.” Though Cortana is available on several third-party apps, the new patent would make it easier for developers to add Cortana features, like voice recognition, text-to-speech and app-specific controls.Essentially, this would let users control more than just Microsoft apps with Cortana, which could motivate people to use the assistant more.  Tags Mobile This Cortana thermostat does more than meets the eyecenter_img 2 Cortana Microsoft Comments Now playing: Watch this:last_img read more

Huawei leak prompts sacking of UK defense minister Gavin Williamson

first_img Now playing: Watch this: Tags Tech Industry Security Politics Share your voice The UK may make tech companies clean up social media’s… Following the leak, Williamson last week put out a statement claiming he was not responsible. “Neither I nor any of my team have divulged information from the National Security Council,” he said at the time.But in a letter from May to Williamson on Wednesday, she said her investigation “provides compelling evidence suggesting your responsibility for the unauthorised disclosure.””No other, credible version of events to explain this leak has been identified,” she said.In a followup letter back to May posted to Twitter, Williamson thanked her for the opportunity to resign, but added “to resign would have been to accept that I, my civil servants, my military advisers or my staff were responsible: this was not the case.” Gavin Williamson has been fired from the British government. Oli Scarff / AFP/Getty Images UK Prime Minister Theresa May sacked her government’s Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson on Wednesday after a leak about dealings with Chinese company Huawei.Last week the Telegraph reported that May, in a confidential National Security Council meeting of defense chiefs and security agencies, had given the green light to the scandal-scarred Chinese telecommunications giant working on “noncore” parts of the infrastructure.The decision to use Huawei equipment to build the UK’s 5G infrastructure is far from straightforward. In February, the UK’s  Government Communications Headquarters chief criticized Huawei, saying it poses security threats from the Chinese government. The US has continually warned its allies about security concerns with Huawei, and last August the Australian government banned Huawei in 5G deployments. Speaking to Parliament on Thursday, the government said the matter is “closed” and would not refer it to the police. But Labour deputy leader Tom Watson pointed out that “the prime minister has sacked the secretary of state for Defence because she believes there is compelling evidence he has committed a crime” and questioned how the government could block a criminal investigation.  During May’s Brexit-haunted tenure as prime minister, members of her cabinet have repeatedly leaked details from meetings to the press. But because this one pertained to matters of national security, May launched an investigation to identify the culprit.The investigation caused May to “lose confidence” in Williamson, and resulted in her asking him to leave the government, said 10 Downing Street in an official statement. “The Prime Minister’s decision has been informed by his conduct surrounding an investigation into the circumstances of the unauthorised disclosure of information from a meeting of the National Security Council.”He’ll be replaced by Penny Mordaunt, who previously served as International Development secretary. 1 2:18 Comment Originally published May 1 at 10:05 a.m. PT.Update May 2 at 5:04 a.m. PT: Notes Williamson’s replacement.Update May 2 at 5.30 a.m. PT: Notes discussion of possible criminal investigation.

Avengers Endgame is streaming Here are the directors best reveals

first_img Now playing: Watch this: 2:00 Marvel The Avengers Tags Avengers: Endgame is now available for streaming.Warning: Avengers: Endgame spoilers ahead. You can purchase Avengers: Endgame for streaming as of Tuesday. And while there’s nothing like a big-screen experience, watching the streaming version has some advantages. Extras, for example, include deleted scenes (detailed here), a gag reel, a feature on Cap and Peggy’s relationship and a touching tribute to Stan Lee. Originally published July 30, 8:28 a.m. PT.  Update, 5:10 p.m. PT: Adds the reveal about Bruce Banner’s transformation.  30 Photos Avengers: Endgame could have been very differentcenter_img Share your voice 1 Comment TV and Movies You can pick up fresh tidbits about the film by watching it with the commentary track turned on. Directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo and screenwriters Steven McFeely and Christopher Markus join forces to talk over the film and offer details and insights. Here are 13 of those revelations: 1. Yessir, that’s my baby The first person viewers see in Avengers: Endgame is Ava Russo, daughter of director Joe Russo. She plays Lila Barton, Hawkeye’s daughter, whom Hawykeye is teaching to shoot arrows as the film begins. The scene was planned for Avengers: Infinity War, Joe Russo says, but the brothers found it “too disorienting” to cut from Thanos’ snap to Hawkeye’s family. (Lia, Russo’s other daughter, shows up later as a kid in a diner who wants to get a selfie with Smart Hulk.) 2. It’s about time Listen carefully in the scene where we first see the time-travel suits. Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk) delivers an explanation of how time travel does and doesn’t work that Markus says is very close to how “genuine quantum physicists” explained possible time travel to the writers. 3. We all scream One of the directors’ favorite Easter eggs comes when the Avengers are sitting around a table and Hulk is snacking on Ben & Jerry’s Hunka Hulka Burnin’ Fudge, one of two B&J flavors that Doctor Strange and Tony Stark discussed in Avengers: Infinity War. (The other was Stark Raving Hazelnuts.) 4. What Nebula knows McFeely explains that Nebula doesn’t know about what exactly happened to her sister Gamora, who was sacrificed at the hands of their father, Thanos. “No one knows other than anybody who was there,” he says. Nebula “just knows her sister didn’t come back, and he left with the stone.” 5. The role of Asgard is played by England When Thor and Rocket time-travel back to Asgard, the scene was shot at England’s Durham Cathedral, the directors say. It was one of the few scenes they shot during the making of Avengers: Infinity War, but intending all along to use it in Avengers: Endgame. 6. Baby, you can drive my car Rocket (voice of Bradley Cooper) is one of the directors’ favorite characters, says Joe Russo. “He reminds me of Louie De Palma [Danny De Vito] from [the 1978-1983 sitcom] ‘Taxi,'” jokes Markus. “He’s about the same height.” 7. Butt out Joe Russo reveals that “probably the most controversial joke in the whole movie” comes when Ant-Man salutes Captain America’s shapely rear end, aka “America’s ass.” Says Russo, “That (line) was hotly debated.” It’s even more controversial later, when Cap says it to a version of himself. 8. The Natural Robert Redford is in the movie as HYDRA agent Alexander Pierce, and Markus says that Redford himself declared it was his last movie role ever. So when Redford, age 82, says, “I’m gonna need that case,” know that you’re watching a great actor’s (apparent) final scene. 9. Lola time Stan Lee was de-aged — the filmmakers call it being “Lola’d” — for his final cameo, in which a 1970s version of Lee yells, “Make love, not war,” out a car window. His look is based on a real photo of Lee from the ’70s. 10. Cravings Howard Stark, Tony’s dad, brings his pregnant wife sauerkraut because that’s what screenwriter McFeely’s mom craved when she was expecting him. “That’s the McFeely Easter egg,” he says. 11. Forever in high school The filmmakers explain that time hasn’t passed for the people snapped, which is why Peter Parker comes back and is still in high school. But those born during the five-year period when half the world was gone don’t vanish, they get to keep on existing as well. 12. I am Iron Man The scene where Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, wearing the Infinity Gauntlet, snaps his fingers and declares, “I am Iron Man,” is tough to top. The filmmakers reveal that this was the last scene shot for the movie. It was filmed in January 2019 at Hollywood’s Raleigh Studios, adjacent to the soundstage where Downey did his screen-test for his iconic role 12 years earlier. Let the circle be unbroken. 13. Bruce Banner transformation took a turn The screenwriters and directors dubbed Mark Ruffalo’s eyeglasses-wearing hero Smart Hulk, and McFeely said his story originally was planned for Avengers: Infinity War. But that moment of triumph was too much for a movie facing a succession of losses, McFeely said, so special-effects artists cut the Smart Hulk reveal out of Avengers: Infinity War. “I don’t think we had enough space to tell that story (in Infinity War),” Anthony Russo agreed.You can purchase Avengers: Endgame for streaming now and on Blu-ray Aug. 13.

Despite DUI Checkpoints Another Fatal Weekend in PG County

first_imgBy Mark F. Gray, AFRO Staff Writer, mgray@afro.comIn an attempt to bring safety to one of the most dangerous stretches of highway in the state, Prince George’s County Police have begun setting up road blocks along Route 210 in southern Maryland.  These sobriety check points are not only designed to catch drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the Department hopes it will force drivers to slow down on a thoroughfare where speeding drivers have led to fatal accidents.PGPD Chief Hank Stawinski announced an aggressive plan to crack down on dangerous and malicious automotive criminal activities.  Stawinski was particularly adamant about slowing speeders down to prevent accidents that have taken the lives of children and families in southern Maryland over the last few weeks.Prince George’s County Police set up DUI checkpoints along Route 210, the site of many fatal crashes over the past few years, however other places in the County are also suffering from the realities of drunk and careless driving. (Courtesy Photo)The stretch of Indian Head Highway that is being heavily patrolled is just off I-495 and Oxon Hill Rd. near Livingston Rd. in Fort Washington.   Residents have been complaining this stretch was so dangerous it warranted aggressive patrolling because it had also become a stretch that was associated with drag racing among cars and motorcycles.The targeted effort is being led by the Department’s Special Operations Division and is one of many strategies being used to enhance safety on this heavily-travelled roadway.  According to the Maryland State Highway Administration, more than 60 people have died in crashes on Indian Head Highway in the past 11 years.On New Year’s Eve three children died and two adults were hurt after a multi-car crash.   Alexander and Rosalie Mejia, both 5, and their 1-year-old brother, Isaac, of Falls Church, Virginia lost their lives when the driver of a pickup truck rear-ended their car at the spot where the DUI checkpoint has been set up.  The family’s car had either slowed or stopped behind two other vehicles for a traffic light near Wilson Bridge Drive before it was plowed into.“We are not only aware of this issue, we are actively engaged in this fight to take drunk drivers off the road and to hold them responsible,” Stawinski stated as the preliminary investigation began.  “It is difficult to describe how deeply frustrated I am, because, despite all of this work, a family is suffering beyond imagination.”Last October, a new speed camera was installed on the highway following the death of 24-year-old Samira Jenkins in March. Jenkins lost her life when a car struck her near the intersection of Indian Head Highway and Kerby Hill Road while on her way to a job interview.Meanwhile the epidemic of auto fatalities continued last weekend in Seat Pleasant after another single-car crash left three occupants dead on Martin Luther King Jr. Highway and Glen Willow Drive.The victims are 23-year-old Grecia Sanchez Cruz and 25-year-old Brenda Merlot both of Crelin Street in Lanham. The third deceased victim’s name hasn’t been released until his family is located and notified. A fourth occupant suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries.The preliminary investigation reveals the car was heading southbound on Martin Luther King Jr. Highway approaching Glen Willow Drive when it left the roadway, struck an embankment and ultimately overturned. Three victims were pronounced dead on the scene. The fourth victim was transported to a local hospital. It does not appear any of the occupants were wearing a seatbelt.  The southbound lane of M.L. King Jr. Hwy was closed for almost seven hours during the investigation.Maryland State Police say a second crash left one person dead on the Capital Beltway near Rockville Pike.  Two cars were traveling east on the Inner Loop when one driver lost control and crashed into the other vehicle.last_img read more

Legendary actor director camaraderie

first_imgSoumitra Chatterjee is a man who redefined the concept of a hero in Bengali cinema. His extraordinary talent and expressive eyes was enough to aesthetically portray a scene without dialogues. Satyajit Ray’s Apur Sansar was the turning point of his life, after which there was no looking back for Soumitra Chatterjee. As an actor, he is well known for his versatility and honesty which is evident through the characters that he has played earlier. Be it the ambitious Apu in Apur Sansar or the character of a nationalist leader Sandip in Ghare Baire or his role as Feluda in Sonar Kella, he is a man with many golden feathers to his hat. To celebrate his 81st Birthday, R.A.I.D. (group of companies) screened Satyajit Ray’s Apu in the national capital on Sunday. It is a 60-minute documentary based on Chatterjee’s life, inspiration and his overall journey, directed by Ipshita Gon Gupta. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The documentary showed the actor narrating the journey of his life from a small town to the silver screen. He repeatedly mentioned how Ray’s movies helped him to grow as an actor. He also mentioned that he could relate to the character of Apu, a small town guy who comes to Kolkata to fulfill his dreams. Ipshita, director of the documentary said:  “Satyajit Ray and Soumitra Chatterjee both complement each other. I feel that without one, the other is incomplete.” Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixWhen asked about the documentary, she further added: “I have been doing it (documentary) for quite some time, in bits and pieces. It took about six or seven years to complete it. Firstly it was time consuming and then I also had to deal with my finances. Also, it was necessary to coordinate with the timings of Soumitra kaku but the kind of co-operation I got from him, was awesome. “The documentary was followed by a play- Apu Trilogy, the adapted version of Ray’s Apu Trilogy. The two hour play, which was staged under the guidance of Happy Ranajit Sahoo, was beautifully portrayed. The scene which showed Apu and Durga running on the stage as Apu wishes to see a train and her elder sister, Durga takes him long with her, was interesting.last_img read more

HeartFlow Technology Helps Identify Coronary Plaques at Risk of Rupturing

first_img News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more May 23, 2016 — First-in-human data presented at EuroPCR 2016 demonstrate that hemodynamic data from HeartFlow Inc. may help predict which coronary plaques have the potential to rupture. The results were part of a study designed to determine whether use of HeartFlow technology could predict risk of developing acute coronary syndrome (ACS), a condition associated with sudden, reduced blood flow to the heart. The study was led by Professor Bon-Kwon Koo, M.D., Ph.D., FACC, of Seoul National University Hospital.The EMERALD (Exploring the MEchanism of the plaque Rupture in Acute coronary syndrome using coronary CT angiography and computationaL fluid Dynamics) study evaluated 71 patients who experienced ACS and who had received a coronary computed tomography angiography (cCTA) between one month and two years previously.HeartFlow’s hemodynamic assessment, consisting of fractional flow reserve-computed tomography (FFR-CT), and more importantly the change in FFR-CT across the plaque, was a better predictor of which plaques would rupture and lead to ACS than percent diameter stenosis or adverse plaque characteristics (APCs). APCs are features identifiable with cCTA related to plaque composition and disease burden that increase the risk of rupture, as observed in prior clinical studies.A total of 226 coronary plaques from the cCTAs were assessed – 151 that had not ruptured (non-culprit lesions) and 75 that had ruptured and caused ACS (culprit lesions as identified by invasive angiography). In addition, combining HeartFlow’s hemodynamic assessment and APCs increased the discrimination of lesions at risk for causing ACS more than 10 percent over lesion severity alone.“When evaluating a patient for risk of ACS, we need to look at not only the burden and composition of the plaque, but also the hemodynamic forces — or stress — placed upon the lesion,” Koo said. “The EMERALD study has demonstrated that by applying this important measurement we may have the potential to greatly improve prediction of the lesions that cause ACS, which could help us optimize treatment strategies for these high-risk patients.”ACS is a life-threatening condition that hospitalizes approximately 1.4 million Americans each year, of which 810,000 are for myocardial infarction. Studies have shown that plaque rupture causes approximately 75 percent of fatal myocardial infarctions. In the United States alone, an ACS occurs every 25 seconds and someone dies from an ACS-related event every minute.HeartFlow’s initial product, the HeartFlow FFR-CT Analysis, is a non-invasive technology that provides insight into both the extent of coronary artery disease and the impact that disease has on blood flow to the heart, enabling clinicians to select an appropriate treatment. This product is cleared for use in the United States, is also available in Canada, Europe and Japan, and has demonstrated its utility in reducing invasive and costly procedures to diagnose patients suspected of having coronary artery disease.The hemodynamic factors tested in the EMERALD study include those in the HeartFlow FFR-CT Analysis, which involves the creation of a patient-specific anatomic model from medical imaging data and the application of computational fluid dynamics.EMERALD is a physician-initiated multicenter, international study conducted at 11 centers in four countries in Europe and Asia. The study evaluated patients who presented with ACS between 2010 and 2014, and underwent a cCTA prior to the ACS event. The goal of the study was to determine whether the evaluation of hemodynamic forces, in combination with adverse plaque characteristics, could improve overall identification of patients at risk for ACS.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s… read more Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.
