Morocco Israeli Rents Beach Prevents Locals from AccessMorocco Israeli Rents Beach Prevents Locals from Access


first_imgRabat- According to Moroccan daily newspaper, Al Massaa, an Israeli advertising producer rented the beach of Safi to film sports scenes and prevented local citizens from having access for three days.Windsurfers, kite surfers and recreation lovers were disappointed when they arrived at the famous, recognized surf spot on Safi beach, only to find it surrounded by barriers and police officers who banned them from entering the beach facilities.The seashore was covered with huge spotlights, cameras and other film equipment, when the Israeli advertising producer rented the beach for three successive days to film surf scenes for international television and sports magazines. The local marine sports associations denounced the closure of the beach as a seizure by the Israeli producer without an authorization from the local Safi authorities.In a statement to the same source, officials said that the municipality of Safi had not authorized the use of spotlights, and that it did not know about the Israeli citizen’s actions.Aware of the wind conditions at the location, the Israeli, who is of Lebanese descent, comes frequently to Safi and closes the beach to the local population in order to film surf scenes.Located north of Safi, the surf spot of Sidi Bouzid is an international standard point-break for surfers. Regular, fast and powerful, its waves are ranked among the top 10 in the world.Edited by Elisabeth Myers© Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.

TORONTO — Iamgold Corp. is citing lower gold sales and higher exploration expenses for a drop in revenue and adjusted profit in the third quarter.The Toronto-based gold miner, which reports in U.S. dollars, says revenue came in at US$386.8-million for the quarter, down 10% from US$431.9-million year over year.Adjusted net earnings, which the company said exclude items not indicative of underlying operating performance, were US$60.2-million, or 16 cents per share for the quarter, down from US$112.4-million or 30 cents per share year over year.However, net earnings from continuing operations increased 56% to US$78-million, or 21 cents per share, from US$50-million, or 13 cents per share, in the same period last year.The company said the increase was mainly related to one-time items including higher derivative gains on commodity and foreign exchange contracts, lower income taxes and lower foreign exchange losses.Iamgold has operations in West Africa, South America and Canada.The company’s two largest operations are the Rosebel mine in Suriname and the Essakane mine in Burkina Faso. read more

The Buckeyes won 30-23 in overtime. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorThen-No. 8 Wisconsin gave the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes their hardest test of the season on Saturday, leading by 10 at half and by three late in the fourth quarter before OSU came out victorious in overtime, 30-23.The two teams met for the first matchup since OSU demolished the Badgers 59-0 in the 2014 Big Ten Championship Game. The Badgers defense diminished OSU’s hurry-up offense in the first half, while Wisconsin’s power running game rolled through the Buckeyes’ normally dominant defense.  Wisconsin took a 16-6 lead going into halftime, putting the second-ranked Buckeyes in unfamiliar territory.The Badgers have played OSU tough in Madison in past years, even upsetting a top-ranked OSU in 2010, and falling in overtime to a sixth-ranked Buckeyes team in 2012. Wisconsin had all the momentum as the second half kicked off.  However, OSU coach Urban Meyer had some key defensive adjustments, and held the Badgers to a measly 11 offensive yards in the third quarter as the Buckeyes scored twice to take the lead 20-16.  The Badgers, then, moved the ball quickly down the field as they retook the lead, 23-20 in the fourth quarter. OSU senior kicker Tyler Durbin hit a field goal with 3:57 left in the quarter to tie the game at 23, which was enough to send the game into overtime for the second meeting in a row between these two teams in Madison.OSU redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett, who struggled for most of the first half, went 4-for-4 with the game-winning touchdown pass to redshirt sophomore wide receiver Noah Brown in overtime.  The Buckeye defense then held Wisconsin on its possession holding out for the 30-23 win over the Badgers.  For the game, Barrett had 226 yards passing on 17-of-29 attempts with a touchdown and an interception and added 92 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.  Wisconsin senior running back Corey Clement had a career game for the Badgers, gaining 164 rushing yards on 25 carries. Redshirt freshmen quarterback Alex Hornibrook added 214 yards on 16-of-28 attempts with a touchdown and an interception.By The Numbers3-3: In the Buckeyes last six trips to Madison, they have won only three times, including two overtime wins.  The Badgers knocked off a No. 1, No. 3 and 18th-ranked OSU team in their three wins.89: Barrett scored his 89th career touchdown in overtime, setting the school record for most touchdowns accounted for.  The previous record was held by Braxton Miller, with 88.0: The Badgers’ defense have not allowed a touchdown in the first quarter through six games.6: The Badgers held OSU to only 6 points in the first half, which was the fewest points scored by Ohio State in the first half since Meyer joined the program in 2012. read more


Two women accused of using Muslim dress for shoplifting spreeTwo women accused of using Muslim dress for shoplifting spree


One Muslim mother of two shopping in the store on Wednesday told The Telegraph:  “It’s not the first time it’s happened, where they dress up in abayas. It’s wrong and I’ve seen it done before all around the world. It’s wrong.”Another shopper, who herself wears a hijab and abaya, wrote on Twitter: “If she’s Muslim or not she’s giving us Muslim women a bad light and if she is Muslim then may Allah guide her.”Another Twitter user, named only as Abdul, wrote: These people aren’t Muslim they’re those people who live in and around east London and have exploited the fact that it’s predominantly Muslims around here and to be honest Muslims are very generous people in giving towards charity and these frauds know this. Be aware everyone.” Some of the items the women are alleged to have attempted to steal Two women in Muslim dress were caught in an apparent attempt to use their outfits to steal dozens of items from a supermarket.The women were stopped by security guards at an Asda branch in Dagenham, East London, after being suspected of trying to leave with an estimated £200 worth of tins of baby formula hidden in their clothing.Video footage taken by a local shopper appeared to show one of the women taking items from what appeared to be a bag or pouch hidden under the long, black robe she was wearing after being confronted by security staff at the store last Saturday evening.Both women were wearing hijabs and black abayas, the headscarf and loose robe-like garment worn by some Muslim women.At one stage one of the woman pulls up the dress, revealing her tummy and underwear, in what appears to be an attempt to show she is not hiding any more items. A spokesperson for Asda said: “We do not tolerate any form of shoplifting and work hard to deter shoplifters from our stores. “All cases of attempted theft are taken seriously and we always work closely with the local police force in the communities we serve. “We are in contact with Dagenham Police about this incident and would like to thank colleagues at our Dagenham store for their quick intervention and response in this case.”The Metropolitan Police said its officers were investigating the incident but had made no arrests at this stage.A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “We are aware of footage circulating on social media of two females having been stopped by staff members at a commercial premises at Merrilands Crescent, Dagenham on suspicion of theft. “The incident occurred on Sunday, 4 August between 19:30hrs and 19:45hrs. The two suspects are suspected of having attempted to steal infant formula. The incident was reported to police at 13:22hrs on Wednesday, 7 August. At this early stage there have been no arrests.”  Security staff surround the two women at the Dagenham Asda Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

A senior Muslim community leader, who asked not to be named, told The Telegraph: “It’s highly unlikely religious Muslim women would do this, but different Muslims do different things. If these women were Muslim and were attempting to shoplift they certainly should not be doing so. Both these acts, shoplifting and lifting up their dresses, go against what Muslims should be doing in the first place.”Asda staff did not immediately report the incident to the police, waiting until yesterday to do so, and the whereabouts of the two women are currently unknown.

first_imgOVER 750,000 DOSES  of illegal medicines were detained by The Irish Medicines Board last year with sedatives, weight loss pills and erectile dysfunction drugs the most seized items.In its 2012 annual report published today, the IMB said that it is concerned with the “consistent levels” of counterfeit drugs they’ve detained in conjunction with the Revenue Customs Service and An Garda Síochána.“We detained 725,352 tablet or capsules, 24,704 packs of liquids, 5,445 packs of creams and 2,775 dosage units of powders deemed to be unauthorised medicinal products, ” said chief executive Pat O’Mahony.These detained products included 153,042 doses indicated for weight loss which contained the active substance sibutramine which is not permitted in any authorised medicinal product in the EU. In additon, 52,089 units related to erectile dysfunction products.The IMB says that the majority of these unauthorised medicinal products shipped into Ireland originate from India and China.IllegalO’Mahony emphasised that the IMB recommends that nobody should purchase medicines online:There are no guarantees as to the safety, quality or effectiveness of these products. Medicines purchased on the internet can pose serious health risks to those who use them. The supply of prescription only medicines via the internet is illegal and no online pharmacy is authorised to operate in or into Ireland.The IMB said it had taken part in an INTERPOL global operation in the autumn of last year which targeted illegal medicinal websites worldwide. That operation, named Pangea V, led directly in Ireland of  tablets, capsules and creams with an estimated value in excess of €375,000 according to the IRB.Adverse reactionsOther findings from the IMB report include the registation of 388 new medical devices last year with the assessment of  1,372 new human medicine applications.The board also carried out investigations into 2,757 reports of adverse reactions to medication in Ireland, a 7 per cent annual increase.

Irish goalkeeper urges people to seek help with mental health issuesIrish goalkeeper urges people to seek help with mental health issues


first_imgIRISH INTERNATIONAL RULES goalkeeper Paddy O’Rourke has urged people in this country to ‘look after each other’ in the wake of the tragic death of Galway hurler Niall Donoghue.O’Rourke will be between the posts for Ireland tomorrow night against Australia in Croke Park.The Meath net minder works as a welfare officer in Dundalk IT and is involved in the ‘PleaseTalk’ campaign, which aims to alert third-level students in Ireland to the support services available to them in colleges.“It’s an awful sad case and it’s going to hit the hurling team in Galway, his neighbours, his friends, his family. The main message behind ‘Please Talk’ is talking is a sign of strength, so we want to try and get that out there as much as possible.”“Everyone has to get out there and look after each other. If it just means sitting down having a cup of tea with someone, or talking to someone that you don’t usually talk to, it could make a big difference.“Nobody should ever feel isolated; especially somebody so young being lost this way is just terribly sad. One life lost is one too many.”O’Rourke believes GAA players can be particularly vulnerable.“We’re all human at the end of the day. When we pack our bags after training, we go home to family, we go home to friends, we go home to college – we’re just the same as everybody else.“There’s different things can mount up on top of you. If you’re in college and you’re coming up to exam times, the pressure can get to you. Whether you’re trying to juggle training, trying to juggle exams, different things can weigh you down.“You should always feel that there’s somebody there, one of your friends, one of your family members, that you can pick up the phone, that you can say ‘Look it, I want to have a chat’.StudentsO’Rourke admitted from his own experiences in Dundalk IT that he has witnessed problems emerge but praised the counseling services that are available.“We’ve seen some elements of it alright, so far, but we’d have our own counselling service in the college in Dundalk and thankfully they’re absolutely brilliant. They’re there 24/7 for the students. No matter what time, day or night, they pick up the phone.“We can refer them on to our counsellors within the college, and it’s just basically being there for each other and being there as a link person.

Time Warner blackout results in massive CBS piracy spikeTime Warner blackout results in massive CBS piracy spike


first_imgCBS and Time Warner Cable are in the middle of a nasty little spat over retransmission fees, and consumers are caught in the middle. Time Warner has dropped all CBS channels until the situation is resolved. Included in the blackout are CBS, Showtime, The Movie Channel, Flix, and Smithsonian Channel. To retaliate, CBS has blocked Time Warner internet users from accessing its programming online. So what’s a video-hungry consumer to do? Yep, torrents.By at least one measure, the CBS-Time Warner fight is causing CBS content to be torrented at a markedly higher rate. According to TorrentFreak, the CBS series Under the Dome has seen rates of piracy spike by 34% since the shutdown. At the same time the show’s ratings have started to drop off, falling almost 10% last week.This probably indicates it doesn’t take much to get people to pirate content. As long as watching something the legitimate way is slightly more convenient, people will do it. But if you take away that option, they flood back to the torrent swarm. It’s a problem HBO has been dealing with for years with its content behind an expensive cable paywall. Although, the company has indicated it’s not bothered by piracy even though Game of Thrones it the most pirated show on the internet.We should take care not to chalk all the Under the Dome piracy spike to Time Warner customers, but the blackout does coincide exactly with the piracy spike. Someone’s going to blink first, but it looks like viewers aren’t being held hostage with all those torrents available.last_img read more


Les microclimats au service de lagriculture mondialeLes microclimats au service de lagriculture mondiale


first_imgLes microclimats au service de l’agriculture mondiale ?Et si l’Homme s’aidait du climat au lieu de le subir ? Des scientifiques israéliens ont mis au point une technique d’utilisation des images satellites afin d’aider à prévenir les agriculteurs d’un changement de climat à petite échelle et à améliorer leur productivité. Économiquement intéressante, cette technique pourrait également aider à résorber le problème de la Faim à plus grande échelle.Près d’un milliard de personnes dans le monde ne mangent pas assez pour s’assurer une  bonne santé. Plus des trois quart de la population souffrant de la faim dans le monde vit en Asie, en Afrique et dans le Pacifique. Le climat et les techniques agricoles dans ces régions jouent un rôle énorme dans cette pénurie alimentaire. Les récoltes sont très fragiles et peuvent être dégradées pour un changement environnemental minime. La vermine, les pathogènes et les mauvaises herbes provoqueraient la perte de plus de 40 % des approvisionnements alimentaires mondiaux, d’après la FAO. Et l’avenir se révèle d’autant plus inquiétant au vu de l’explosion démographique qui s’opère depuis le siècle dernier. La FAO a déclaré que la production mondiale de nourriture devait augmenter de 70 % d’ici 2050 pour subvenir aux besoins des futurs 9,1 milliards d’individus qui peupleront la planète.À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Des scientifiques israéliens se sont donc penchés sur les dysfonctionnements de l’agriculture face au climat. Ils ont réussi à développer un système, publié dans le Bulletin de l’American Meteorological Society en Septembre, utilisant des images satellites pour anticiper ou tout du moins, observer les changements climatiques qui peuvent s’opérer dans une région. Plutôt que d’analyser le climat et la topographie de grandes portions de terres, le nouveau système divise les champs en microclimats plus petits aidant les agriculteurs à mieux travailler sur chaque lot individuel. D’après Uri Dayan, un climatologue de l’Université Hebrew à Jérusalem, il permet même de savoir quel est le meilleur moment pour planter les graines et quelle culture est la mieux adaptée selon le terrain. Ainsi les récoltes pourraient être maximisées pour nourrir le plus de monde possible. Ces nouvelles données pourraient laisser entrevoir un affinage des modèles météorologiques et de l’agriculture qui y est liée et faire espérer des solutions à plus grande échelle.Le 25 janvier 2012 à 13:45 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more


Vancouver has wettest October on recordVancouver has wettest October on record


first_imgIn the Pacific Northwest, rainy weather is a fact of life, but last month’s precipitation will go down in the record books. The National Weather Service measured 8.22 inches of rainfall at Pearson Field — making it the wettest October on record and well above the historic average.Based on the 30-year average, 1980 to 2010,  the city typically gets about 3.24 inches of rain during October. Previously, Vancouver’s rainiest October was in 1997, when 7.37 inches of rain fell. The third-rainiest October was in 1955 with 7.25 inches. Except for a wet Oct. 13, most days brought a half inch or less of rain.“We’ve had a pretty active period in the tropics, particularly in the western Pacific, that may have injected a fair amount of moisture into the jet stream,” said Jon Bonk, a meteorologist at the weather service. “We didn’t have very much variation in our weather pattern. The storm track was aimed at the Pacific Northwest for the month of October.”last_img read more
