Chinese Business Delegation Eyes Investment Opportunities in Morocco

Rabat – Business delegation members from China discussed investments opportunities in Morocco on Monday with several Moroccan officials in Rabat. The delegation met with the president of the Kenitra-Rabat-Salé region, Abdessamad Sekkal, and discussed market opportunities for Chinese projects in the region as well as measures to promote and strengthen business ties between the two countries.The meeting was marked by the presence of Mohammed Khalil, president of the Morocco-China Friendship and Exchanges Association and Ding Houfei, president of Islamic-Chinese Council. The two sides agreed to collaborate to further promote China-Morocco cooperation in different sectors, especially business and investments.During their business gathering, Morocco’s officials and the Chinese delegation signed a partnership framework that will focus on business interactions between the Kenitra-Rabat-Sale region and Chinese companies.Earlier this month, China and Morocco also agreed on the establishment of a joint venture to monitor the construction of residential complexes and industrial firms of the Mohammed VI Tangier Tech City. read more

US hedge fund to vote against Canopys proposed US34B acquisition of Acreage

SMITHS FALLS, Ont. — A U.S. hedge fund says it will vote against Canopy Growth’s proposed acquisition of Acreage Holdings, saying the US$3.4-billion offer is “substantially lower” than the U.S. cannabis company’s worth.Marcato Capital Management, which manages funds that own roughly 2.7 per cent of Acreage’s outstanding shares, says the deal is “unbelievably lopsided” in favour of the Canadian cannabis company.The San Francisco-based activist investor adds in its letter to Acreage’s board that its strategic value as one of the few multi-state operators in the U.S. merits a “significant premium.”Marcato says it also expects enterprise values of cannabis companies in the U.S. will skyrocket once it becomes legal under federal law, and prefers that Acreage remains independent.Canopy announced last month that it had signed a deal to buy Acreage once there was a “federally permissible” way to do so.Cannabis is legal for medical and recreational purposes in several U.S. states, but it remains illegal at the federal level in the U.S. and is considered a Schedule 1 drug.However, the political climate in the U.S. is becoming more receptive to cannabis. For example, the bipartisan STATES Act — which would amend the Controlled Substances Act and could effectively make cannabis federally legal in states where recreational consumption is legal — was reintroduced in Congress last month.“Marcato believes it is highly imprudent for Acreage to sell itself today at the proposed valuation, with so much unlocked growth and value embedded in the company,” the hedge fund said in its letter to the board.

Protest over mass arrest

A protest was staged along Baseline road this evening against a mass arrest of suspected criminals in the Borella area today.The police said that during a special operation at least 28 suspects were arrested over their involvement in criminal activities. Angered by the arrest, several people took to the streets near the railway grounds on Baseline Road last evening and staged a protest by burning tyres and disrupting traffic. The protestors were demanding the release of the suspects who had been arrested saying they were arrested based on false allegations.The police later used teargas and water cannons to disperse the protestors. Commandos of the police Special Task Force (STF) carried out the sudden raid this morning.

UN relief agency makes school grants to Palestinian refugee children in Gaza

A United Nations relief agency has distributed 100 shekels (about $25) apiece to Palestinian refugee children to cover the costs of school bags, uniforms and shoes in the Gaza Strip, infusing noticeable economic activity into a region that has reached an unprecedented level of unemployment following the suspension of much foreign aid.This gives new meaning to the phrase “education is our economy,” said Muhasen Muhaisen, Chief of the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) Education department in Gaza, which has been particularly hard hit since Israel stopped tax transfers and other countries suspended contributions to the Palestinian Authority (PA) following the Hamas election victory in January.Israel and international donors insist that Hamas, whose charter is committed to Israel’s destruction, must subscribe to the principles of non-violence, recognize Israel’s right to exist, and accept previous agreements and obligations, including the UN-backed Roadmap plan providing for two states living side by side in peace.Various UN agencies have warned regularly over the past months of a looming humanitarian emergency in the occupied Palestinian territories. Given the dire economic situation, Mrs. Muhaisen stressed that families in Gaza are placing a premium on the education of their children and that the rock-bottom drop-out rate, an estimated 0.64 percent, reflected this.She insisted that most parents use the 100 shekels per child for school expenses rather than for food: they “closed their mouths [didn’t eat] and used the 100 shekels [per child] for school supplies,” she said. Established in 1949 after the first Israeli-Arab war, UNRWA is the main provider of basic services – education, health, relief and social services – to over 4.3 million registered Palestine refugees in the Middle East. read more

Direct existential threat of climate change nears point of no return warns

The pledge made by world leaders in the Paris Agreement three years ago to stop temperature rising by less than 2-degree-Celsius and working to keep the increase as close as possible to 1.5-degree-Celsius, “were really the bare minimum to avoid the worst impacts of climate change,” said Secretary-General Guterres, in a landmark speech on climate action, at UN Headquarters in New York.“The mountain in front of us is very high but it is not insurmountable. We know how to scale it,” he continued.“Put simply, we need to put the brake on deadly greenhouse gas emissions and drive climate action,” he added, calling for a shift away from the dependency on fossil fuels towards cleaner energy and away from deforestation to more efficient use of resources.Put simply, we need to put the brake on deadly greenhouse gas emissions and drive climate actionThe UN chief went on to say that such a shift in thinking is where “enormous benefits await humankind.”“I have heard the argument – usually from vested interests – that tackling climate change is expensive and could harm economic growth. This is hogwash. In fact, the opposite is true,” he stressed.In his message, Mr. Guterres highlighted the huge economic costs of climate change and the opportunities presented by climate action. UN Photo/Eskinder DebebeA family in Uvs Province, Mongolia, using a solar panel to generate power for their ger, a traditional Mongolian tentClimate action, socio-economic progress mutually supportive“Climate action and socio-economic progress are mutually supportive, with gains of 26 trillion dollars predicted by 2030 compared with business as usual, if we pursue the right path,” he said, citing the findings of the recent Climate Economy report from the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate Change.The benefits transcend monetary figures.“Climate-resilient water supply and sanitation could save the lives of more than 360,000 infants every year, clean air has vast benefits for public health [and] in China and the United States, new renewable energy jobs now outstrip those created in the oil and gas industries,” explained Mr. Guterres, noting several examples from across the world of climate action resulting in enormous benefits for countries and communities.Underscoring that important strides are being made, the UN chief highlighted the imperative to speed up these transitions.There is another reason to act – moral duty … the world’s richest nations are the most responsible for the climate crisis, yet the effects are being felt first and worst by the poorest nations and the most vulnerable peoples and communities“And for that to happen, the leaders of the world need to step up. The private sector, of course, is poised to move, and many are doing so.In his remarks, Secretary-General Guterres highlighted the skewed impact of the climate crisis on vulnerable nations and urged richer countries to do more to assist them.Looking ahead, the UN chief emphasized that he would be reiterating this message at the General Assembly’s high level segment later in the month as well as at other key events, including the G7 and G20 meetings of world leaders; and the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) meetings.“The time has come for our leaders to show they care about the people whose fate they hold in their hands. We need them to show they care about the future,” he stressed.

He visited the country to survey the devastation and offer support from the Organization.Climate Summit in 2019Mr. Guterres further announced that in September 2019, he will convene a Climate Summit to bring climate action to the top of the international agenda and unveiled the appointment of Luis Alfonso de Alba, a former Mexican diplomat, as his Special Envoy to lead its preparations.The Summit, he said, will focus on the heart of the problem – the sectors that create the most emissions and the areas where building resilience could make the biggest difference – as well as provide leaders and partners the opportunity to demonstrate real climate action and showcase their ambition.“I am calling on all leaders to come to next year’s Climate Summit prepared to report not only on what they are doing, but what more they intend to do when they convene in 2020 for the UN climate conference and where commitments will be renewed and surely ambitiously increased,” he said.In the same vein, the Secretary-General called on civil society and young people to push the agenda of climate action.“There is no more time to waste. We are careering towards the edge of the abyss,” warned Mr. Guterres, adding that though it is not too late to shift course, “every day that passes means the world heats up a little more and the cost of our inaction mounts.”“Every day we fail to act is a day that we step a little closer towards a fate that none of us wants – a fate that will resonate through generations in the damage done to humankind and life on earth.” read more

Brock to honour first Librarian Emeritus

Following a 25-year career as a Brock librarian and researcher, Marcie Jacklin will be presented with the University’s first Librarian Emeritus designation at Fall Convocation on Friday, Oct. 12.Although several other universities have bestowed the honorific title for years, this will be the first time Brock will be honouring its own. Changes made by Senate in 2017 to the University’s Faculty Handbook will allow the designation to be offered to every Librarian IV — the highest ranking a University librarian can hold — upon retirement. “This is a noteworthy achievement for members of Brock’s Library,” said Mark Robertson, University Librarian. “Librarians have long supported researchers in their endeavors, but the Librarian Emeritus title recognizes the significant role that librarians at Brock have as researchers in their own right.”During her 25 years at Brock, Jacklin pursued several areas of research such as active learning for library instruction as well as ways to increase connections to nature for seniors and young people.Her passion for nature and birding led Jacklin to assist with the bibliography for the Niagara Natural Areas Inventory and contribute four chapters to Niagara Birds: A Compendium of articles and species accounts of the birds of the Niagara Region in Ontario.In 2015, Jacklin received a grant from the Environmental Sustainability Research Centre to study the impact of installing bird feeders at a nursing home. Along with Brock PhD in Sustainability candidate Kerrie Pickering, Jacklin studied the wellness of residents before and after the exposure to bird feeders.“We were overwhelmed by the positive impact this exposure to nature had on the residents, their families and staff,” she said.Since retiring in June 2017, Jacklin has been focused on developing her passions. In addition to being involved as a community activist in Fort Erie, she remains an active bird watcher and has travelled to Africa within the past year to catch a glimpse of the continent’s feathered friends. She also plans to continue leading nature walks for Brock’s annual employee Wellness Day.Although Jacklin is still involved with research in her retirement, the part she enjoyed most about her role as a librarian was instruction. In 2005, she developed an instruction program based on feedback from students and was able to report her findings in a scholarly journal article. As demands for her instruction program increased, she moved it online, and it became a regular part of the curriculum.“I am grateful to the students who answered my surveys, as well as faculty and staff who partnered with me,” she said. “The collaborative learning environment turned my style of instruction and research in an entirely new direction.”Jacklin is appreciative of her colleagues at the Library and the Environmental Sustainability Research Centre who supported the Librarian Emeritus distinction and encouraged her to purse her instruction activities and research interests.She is thrilled to be Brock’s first honouree.“I think it is a wonderful acknowledgment of the role that librarians play in enhancing the research skills of students and assisting faculty with their research, as well as the professional research that librarians at Brock are engaged in,” she said. read more

AMC Preview Less Time Defending Print More Time Pushing Brands

first_imgWhen the American Magazine Conference kicks off in San Francisco on Sunday, it will do so against a tumultuous backdrop—the U.S. financial crisis, hemorrhaging advertising dollars and newsstand circulation worries top-of-mind for most magazine publishers.Which is why, perhaps, for the first time in recent memory, the Magazine Publishers of America, the association behind AMC, will urge those in attendance at the three-day conference to stop worrying about the future of print—and start worrying about the future of their magazine brands.“I say in my opening remarks that we [publishers] spend a lot of time defending print,” Michela O’Connor Abrams, president and publisher of Dwell and AMC chair, told FOLIO:. “We need to spend less time protesting, and more time talking about how the entrepreneurial vision that built these magazine brands is going to translate them across platforms anywhere, anytime.”“Print,” she added, “is not going away.” Paul Saffo, noted “futurist,” is scheduled to deliver a keynote on “the future of magazines in a post-information age.”Abrams said she hopes attendees will leave the conference with “tangible” takeaways. “We have a two-and-a-half hour working session,” she said. “We’ve always wanted a real working day, and this year we’ll finally get one.”Currently, the conference has 420 registered attendees, about the same number as last year according to the MPA. “My goal was 450,” Abrams said. “But given the economy, we’re happy with [that number].”As has become AMC’s tradition of lining up politicians as keynoters, this year’s conference will have no shortage partisan posturing. Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Speaker of the House, is scheduled to open the conference on Sunday (“she hasn’t cancelled yet,” Abrams said) and Republican California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will be interviewed by Time editor Richard Stengel on Tuesday.[EDITOR’S NOTE: Red 7 Media general manager Tony Silber will be blogging and filing news reports from the conference.

Have smartphones really destroyed a generation We dont know

first_img“Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?” the Atlantic asked in a provocative and widely read 2017 cover story. That article, by San Diego State University psychology professor Jean Twenge, summarized the correlational data linking teen mental health with technology and suggested the answer was yes. There’s also a sense, in the conventional wisdom, that the answer must be yes. Teens in the United States are coming of age at a time when digital technology is truly ubiquitous, where smartphones are our “constant companions.” These youth are also, according to national surveys, increasingly in crisis. Here are some of the most troubling statistics. Between 2009 and 2017, the number of high schoolers who contemplated suicide increased 25 percent. The number of teens diagnosed with clinical depression grew 37 percent between 2005 and 2014. It could be that more teens are willing to admit they’re struggling and are seeking help. But deaths by suicide among teens have increased as well. A recent study found that poisoning attempts by girls ages 10 to 12 increased 268 percent from 2010 to 2017. center_img As adults have noticed these trends, they’ve begun to worry: It’s the phones. Public fears about smartphones aren’t limited to mood disorders like depression, or rates of anxiety. There’s panic about gaming or tech “addiction,” and that we’re losing our ability to focus or remember due to the ubiquity of digital tech. These concerns are easily lumped together into one overarching fear: Tech is messing with our minds. Read the whole story: Voxlast_img read more

How to use the Windows shutdown command

first_imgHow to use the Windows shutdown command by Martin Brinkmann on May 22, 2017 in Windows – 8 commentsMost Windows users shut down the PC either through the start menu, Alt-F4 menu, or by pressing the power button on the device.The shutdown command provides you with options to change a Windows computer’s power state. It enables you to shut down, restart, hibernate the computer, log off a user, and customize the shut down experience. The command supports local and remote shutdowns on top of that, and you may use it to stop a shutdown or restart that is in process.How to use the Windows shutdown command is the first part of a series that looks at important Windows command line programs.The Windows shutdown commandYou run shutdown from the command prompt or PowerShell interface. What you can do however is create shortcuts so that you don’t have to write the commands each time you want to use them, but can simply click on the shortcut instead to run them. This is explained later in the guide.First thing you need to do is open a command prompt window:Tap on the Windows-key, type cmd.exe, and hit the Enter-key on the keyboard.The following major commands are providedshutdown /a — This command stops a shut down or reboot process. Can be useful if Windows Update decided that it is time to reboot the PC, or if your actions or other programs started the process.shutdown /s — The shutdown command. This shuts down the computer when you run it.shutdown /r — Shuts down the computer, and restarts it afterwards.shutdown /g — Like shutdown /r, but will restart any registered program when the system has loaded.shutdown /h — Hibernates the local computer.shutdown /l — Logs off the current user.shutdown /p — Turns the computer off without prior warnings. Equals running shutdown /s /f /t 0The following additional commands are supportedThe shutdown /i GUI/e — This enables documentation for the shutdown of the computer./i — Show the graphics user interface. Must be the first option of the command, and all other switches are ignored (as the graphical user interface is loaded)./hybrid — Shuts the computer down, and enables Fast Startup. Must be used with /s/t 0 — Sets the timeout period before the shutdown. The default is 30 seconds, and you may speed things up by setting /t 0./f — Forces running programs to terminate without user warning.  Also /force./m \\computer — Specify a remote computer that you want to run the command on./c “remark” — Adds a comment that explains the reason for the shutdown or restart of the computer. Supports a maximum of 512 characters, and is displayed on the shutdown prompt./d — Adds a reason for the restart using a system of codes. Basically, /d p:1:2 indicates a planned shutdown because of a hardware installation, while /d u:1:2 a user defined shutdown because of a hardware installation. You can leave out p and u to set an unplanned reason for the shutdown. The table with major and minor reasons is displayed when you run shutdown /?./o — This command restarts the PC and loads the Advanced Boot Menu on the next start. Needs to be run with /rShutdown Command ExamplesThe following examples highlight some command shutdown command switches.Run a fast shutdown. This forces applications to close, and sets theshutdown /s /f /t:0Restart the computer, and add a reason for the restart. Computer will restart in 30 seconds, as t command is not specifiedshutdown /r /d u:2:1This command shuts down the remote computer ComputerXYZ after 300 seconds forcefully, adds a reason for the shutdown, and displays the comment in the shutdown prompt.shutdown /m \\ComputerXYZ /s /f /d p:1:2 /c “Computer will restart for maintenance, save your work” /t 300Creating shutdown shortcutsWhile you can run shutdown from the command prompt whenever the need arises, you may also create shortcuts or batch files so that you can run them with a double-click directly without having to open the command prompt or remembering the commands.Option 1: Batch FilesThe first option that you have is to create a batch file.Right-click on the desktop or another location in Explorer, and select New > Text Document.Write or paste the shutdown command or commands that you want to execute using it, e.g. shutdown /s /f /t:0Save the document.Rename it to fastshutdown.bat (choose a different name depending on the purpose). Make sure the extension is .bat, and not .bat.txt.Double-click on the file to test it. Make sure you save all your work before you do so to avoid any issues in this regard.You can add multiple shutdown commands, for instance for several remote machines. Make sure each new command starts on a new line.Option 1: ShortcutsShortcuts work pretty much like batch files, but they are limited to a single command.Right-click on the desktop or another location in Explorer, and select New > Shortcut.Type or paste the command in the field on the “what item would you like to create a shortcut for” page. Click next.Name the shortcut afterwards, and click finish.Shutdown Programs for WindowsYou may run programs designed specifically to shut down Windows PCs. Most are quite old, but work just fine. Please note that some antivirus solutions may flag those because of what they do.Superfast Shutdown — Long standing program, shuts down the Windows PC in record time.Shutdown Scheduler — Lets you schedule the shutdown of a Windows computerAbsolute Shutdown — Designed to make shutting down Windows XP faster.

Rolls Royce to break speed record

first_imgRolls Royce to break speed recordRolls Royce to break speed record with world’s fastest all electric aircraftRolls-Royce is leading a highly specialised challenge to build the world’s fastest all-electric aircraft. This zero-emissions plane is expected to make a run for the record books with a target speed of 300+ MPH (480+ KMH).Inside a bustling hangar bay at the far end of Gloucestershire airport in South West England, a team of British engineers, designers, and data specialists recruited from across Rolls-Royce and beyond have set out to make history. They’re building a high-performance electric aeroplane unlike anything the world has ever seen. Scheduled to take to the skies over Great Britain in 2020, the aircraft will reach a speed of 300 mph – and quite likely more – making it the fastest all-electric plane in history.This run for the record books is no stunt. It’s part of a Rolls-Royce initiative called ACCEL – short for “Accelerating the Electrification of Flight” – that’s intended to pioneer a third wave of aviation in support of Rolls-Royce’s strategy to champion electrification.ACCEL is partly funded by the UK government and involves a host of partners including electric motor and controller manufacturer YASA and the aviation start-up Electroflight. The team brings together some of the top minds from the world of Formula E racing to help design the e-racer.“ACCEL is nothing less than a revolutionary step change in aviation,” says Matheu Parr, manager of the ACCEL project for Rolls-Royce. “This plane will be powered by a state-of-the-art electrical system and the most powerful battery ever built for flight. In the year ahead, we’re going to demonstrate its abilities in demanding test environments before going for gold in 2020 from a landing strip on the Welsh coastline.”With a heritage rich in innovation and world-firsts, Rolls-Royce is no stranger to such competitions. The company was instrumental in helping Britain win the prestigious Schneider Trophy in 1931, a victory that established Rolls-Royce as a leader in aerospace. The British racing seaplane that established the record was known as the Supermarine S.6B. Powered by a Rolls-Royce “R” engine, it maxed out at 343 mph that day. By comparison, the current record for an all-electric plane, set by Siemens in 2017, is 210 mph. Parr and his team want to blow the doors off the modern e-flight mark – and they even have their eyes on the Supermarine record.Doing so will require overcoming a series of unique challenges. They’ll need to build an immense battery that’s powerful enough to beat a series of speed and performance records, light enough to fly, and stable enough not to overheat. “We’re monitoring more than 20,000 data points per second, measuring battery voltage, temperature, and overall health of the powertrain, which is responsible for powering the propellers and generating thrust. We’ve already drawn a series of insights from the unique design and integration challenges,” says Parr. “And we’re gaining the knowhow to not only pioneer the field of electric-powered, zero-emissions aviation – but to lead it. At this point, our confidence is sky high.”Rolls-Royce announced the ACCEL project at Farnborough Air Show. Source = Rolls Roycelast_img read more

years have passed since the Departure and the characters we’ve met continue to muddle on even if they’re metabolizing the trauma poorly There seems to be some hope in that at least This may sound like a joke given what the show’s reputation is but for the people who watch it I feel like every season ends with that glimmer of hope that you describe Most religions are built around the idea of a lot of suffering but the reward for suffering is some level of enlightenment if not release from that suffering I think about it in much simpler terms which is it’s about grace It’s about the human fundamental of grace And I think that if you are a believer in some sort of organized religion or disorganized religion you want that grace to be given to you by a deity or some other power But for the rest of us who aren’t members of major religions the grace can only really be given by people close to you the ones that you love or by yourself And I think the show’s much more interested in the latter than the former Has working on this show changed your perspective on matters of the spiritual world I think that my perspective is kind of evolving Before I began the process of working on The Leftovers it started for me with reading Tom’s book And Tom’s book felt profoundly beautiful and profoundly sad to me And I wanted to conjure up that same energy in the show As we’ve gone along what I think I’ve found is that I want to feel that there’s an end in sight How can that be achieved I think I had a lot of disdain for bulls–t for fairy stories for pretend in terms of finding release from that pain But I’ve become somewhat enamored of those stories and I have a tremendous amount of respect for believers even if I disagree with the system of belief that they’re engaging in If they’re not hurting anyone particularly if that belief system is creating a tremendous amount of empathy and philanthropy in the world it can be a beautiful thing too I started on a parabola of "Oh my God how can you believe that ridiculous thing,’" But having had the reverse experience on Lostwhere it burst out of the gate and everybody loved it, And he did lose his right to practice law.
