Morocco Signs MoU with French Development Agency for Agriculture Plans

Rabat – The Credit Agricole du Maroc Group (GCAM) has signed a memorandum of understanding with the French Development Agency (AFD) to set up a €50 million credit line to finance agricultural projects.The chairman of GCAM’s board, Tariq Sijilmassi, signed the MoU with the director of AFD’s office in Morocco, Mihoub Mezouaghi, at the 14th International Agricultural Exhibition (SIAM 2019) in Morocco.The credit line will be used to finance agricultural and agri-food projects with a dimension of sustainable development and the protection of natural resources. The AFD supports financing Morocco’s sustainable projects in various fields, primarily fighting land degradation and promoting organic farming, agroforestry use of renewable energies, energy efficiency, and waste treatment.Read also: Morocco’s OCP Invests in Digital to Take Lead in African AgricultureTechnical assistance will also be provided as part of the MoU for better structuring, and also for its clients to support their growth and sustainable development.“This new line of credit will help the holders of agricultural projects to more sustainable and less expensive production solutions including the reduction of fossil fuel consumption and the consumption of water and phytosanitary products,” Mezouaghi said. Mezouaghi added that it is also a question of switching from regular agriculture practices to an alternative agricultural system with higher added value, like organic agriculture, which relies on ecological processes, biodiversity, and cycles adapted to local conditions. read more

Nepals peace process is stagnating top UN envoy warns

23 July 2009The peace process in Nepal has stagnated, the top United Nations envoy to the South Asian nation said today, as the Security Council extended the world body’s mission there for an additional six months. The peace process in Nepal has stagnated, the top United Nations envoy to the South Asian nation said today, as the Security Council extended the world body’s mission there for an additional six months.Today’s unanimous Council resolution extends the mandate of the mission, known as UNMIN, until 23 January 2010.Karin Landgren, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and head of UNMIN, voiced hope that today’s resolution sends a signal to the Government and parties “to take the peace process forward.”Established following the signing of the 2006 peace deal by the Government and the Maoists to end the country’s decade-long civil war, UNMIN has been assisting with key tasks, such as monitoring of the management of arms and armed personnel of the Maoists and the Nepal Army.“The peace process has had significant successes since its inception,” Ms. Landgren told reporters in New York.But she pointed to several issues that could derail the process, such as polarization among the parties and the controversy over the roles of the army and the president.In his most recent report to the Council on Nepal’s request for UN assistance in support of the peace process, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that progress on the peace process has slowed since the onset of the crisis sparked by the resignation of Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal (“Prachanda”) in early May, which occurred one day after the Chief of Army Staff – who he had fired – was reinstated.A senior leader of the Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist-Leninist (UML), Madhav Kumar Nepal, was elected Prime Minister on 23 May and subsequently formed a new coalition Government with the support of 21 other political parties but without the participation of the Maoists.The resolution passed by the 15-member Council today called on “all parties to take full advantage of the expertise and readiness of UNMIN, within its mandate, to support the peace process.”It urged all sides to “work together in a spirit of co-operation, consensus and compromise in order to continue the transition to a durable long-term solution.”In a related development, the UN human rights chief today voiced her continued support for Nepal as it rebuilds after a decade-long civil war, with the mandate of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in the country also being extended until next year.In her letter to the Nepalese Government confirming her acceptance of that agreement, High Commissioner Navi Pillay wrote that OHCHR “remains strongly committed to further strengthen the national human rights protection system, in particular the National Human Rights Commission, through continued cooperation and capacity building,” according to a press release issued in Kathmandu.The Office’s mandate is now set to expire on 9 June 2010.Last weekend, a new UN-backed project was launched to help heal the scars left by Nepal’s civil war, using transitional justice mechanisms to spur reconciliation.The “Peace through Justice” initiative, financed through a $2 million grant from the UN Peace Fund for Nepal (UNPFN), seeks to aid in setting up effective transitional justice systems provided for in the 2006 peace agreement.OHCHR said that “a systematic approach to dealing with the past can help societies heal and work their way back to normality. Establishing the facts of the conflict, acknowledging the losses suffered by the victims and providing a platform for justice helps end impunity and aids reconciliation.”The project, which will run initially for 12 months, will support the Ministry of Peace and Reconstruction (MoPR) to set up bodies, such as the Commission on Inquiry on Disappearances, and will focus on documenting human rights and international humanitarian law violations committed during the conflict, which claimed some 13,000 lives. read more

Nova Scotias deficit projected to grow to 277 million after tax revenue

HALIFAX – Nova Scotia’s fiscal outlook took a dismal turn Thursday when the province’s finance minister said her latest budget projections are calling for more red ink than first forecast — a bleak prediction that is becoming a common refrain across Canada.Maureen MacDonald blamed a slumping global economy for shrinking the province’s revenue, resulting in a projected $277-million deficit for the 2012-2013 fiscal year — a $66-million increase when compared with the budget she tabled last April.“It is the case that economic growth has slowed everywhere,” she told a news conference, adding that British Columbia, Alberta, New Brunswick, P.E.I. and the federal government have all released updates this year showing lower-than-expected revenue.Earlier in the day, the Newfoundland and Labrador government said its deficit forecast had jumped to $726 million from a $258-million shortfall projected last April.Despite the fiscal setback in Nova Scotia, MacDonald said the NDP government remains committed to balancing its books by next spring with a provincial election widely expected some time in 2013.“This hill has gotten a little steeper to climb and we fully recognized that,” she said. “But we will continue to make that steep climb.”With the Nova Scotia economy in neutral, the province is predicting its revenues will drop by $90 million, mainly because of a $61 million decrease in projected income tax revenue.MacDonald also said the province’s economy is expected to grow more slowly than expected.Liberal finance critic Diana Whalen said balancing the budget by next spring will be next to impossible.“The minister spoke of a steep hill to climb — she has an enormous hill to climb and the cost will be cuts to education and health,” Whalen said.“I think we have to look at not blaming the rest of the country or the economic conditions worldwide, because the rest of the country is doing much better than Nova Scotia.”Progressive Conservative Leader Jamie Baillie said the provincial economy is being dragged down by the country’s highest taxes and electricity rates, not global economic forces.“Our economy has gone into reverse,” he said.MacDonald said the government is focused on keeping a tight rein on spending, pointing out that departmental expenses have come in under budget for the fourth time in four years.As well, MacDonald said she has told her NDP colleagues they can forget about a pre-election spending spree.“There are a lot of asks in a pre-election period,” she said. “I indicated to them that they need to understand that it may be a pre-election year, but the behaviour of past governments at pre-election time is not something we can entertain.”She also boasted about the province’s declining debt-to-GDP ratio and the government’s success in getting unbudgeted spending under control.When asked about potential budget cuts in the spring, MacDonald said it was too early to talk about that, suggesting there are some big-money projects on the horizon that could boost the province’s revenue.Among those projects are the Deep Panuke offshore energy development, the $25-billion federal shipbuilding project in Halifax and pending construction of a new convention centre in Halifax. by Michael MacDonald, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 13, 2012 3:46 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Nova Scotia’s deficit projected to grow to $277 million after tax revenue drop read more

A New York-based Guyanese woman died Monday, a day after an allegedly drunk off-duty cop rear-ended her car on the Van Wyck Expressway, authorities said.Police investigate the accident on the Van Wyck Expressway near Rockaway Blvd. on April 23, 2017. (MARC A. HERMANN/FOR NEW YORK DAILY NEWS)According to the New York Daily News, Vanessa Raghubar, 22, was returning from her sister’s birthday celebration Sunday at about 4 a.m. when Officer Neville Smith, 32, crashed his 2010 Mercedes-Benz into her Honda, cops said.The collision sent Raghubar’s car into a tree and a light pole, critically injuring her and her two passengers.Rescuers rushed the woman to Jamaica Hospital, along with her sister Maria Raghubar, 21, and her sister’s boyfriend, Justin Harricharran, 20, officials said.According to NY Daily, Vanessa Raghubar was studying psychology at York College, and was set to graduate in June, her family members said.“She had a great future ahead of her,” said her mother, Janice Perry. “We need justice. He needs to face the consequences for what he did. He did this to two innocent girls.”Smith, a detective assigned to the 48th Precinct was charged Sunday with vehicular assault, assault, driving while intoxicated and refusal to take a Breathalyzer test. Upgraded charges are expected.DEAD: Vanessa RaghubarHe remained hospitalized Monday, and has yet to be arraigned in Queens Criminal Court, officials said.Raghubar’s devastated aunt, Esther Mongul, who raised the woman as her own child, said Maria, who was in critical condition, has not been told about her sister’s death.“She was the most understanding, giving, loving person.

Her pelvis was shattered, her bladder shredded and her arm broken.“He was a cop and he was drunk. We want justice. He was supposed to protect us, not kill us,” Mongul said. “I’m heartbroken.

Bitlys Libya Connection

first_imgWe don’t do business in Libya, but it’s worth noting that on May 31, 2006, the United States reopened the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, a step the State Department described as marking ‘a new era in U.S.-Libya relations. You’ve read all of the books and watched all of the movies about the origins of what you eat, but do you ever really think about where your domains come from? A good number of the top-level domain codes you see belong to different countries. ICANN, the organization in charge of doling out top-level domains, is notoriously stingy when it comes to introducing new names (though it has loosened up a bit, in recent years).One of the more popular Web suffixes, .ly is coming under a bit of scrutiny for its country of origin, as of late. The code, used for popular URL shorteners like bit.ly and ow.ly, comes from Libya. In fact, the the chairman of the General Post and Telecommunications Co., the company in charge of the code, is Mohammed el-Gadhafi, the oldest son of embattled dictator, Moammar Gadhafi.The question is how connected these services really are to the country they bought their domain from. For some, any association at all is too much. The Wall Street Journal contacted Nancy Pelosi. The congresswoman’s assistant told the paper that it wasn’t aware of the Libya connection, but “given this new information, we will no longer be using this free service.”Bit.ly issued the following statement on the issue, The best quote, however, comes from Ryan, the head of HootSuite (the company behind ow.ly): “But at the end of the day, buying oil helps Gadhafi more.”AdChoices广告last_img read more

Christie warns against complacency against Kilmarnock

first_imgCeltic midfielder Ryan Christie has warned his teammates against surprise league leaders Kilmarnock ahead of both team’s clash this weekend.A 2-0 victory for Kilmarnock against Livingston on Wednesday coupled with a defeat for Rangers against Aberdeen and a draw for Celtic at Motherwell saw Steve Clarke’s men move to first position on the standings.The champions are yet to beat Kilmarnock since Clarke was appointed as manager but could topple them off the top of the league with a victory this weekend.However, given Kilmarnock’s remarkable consistency over the last two years since Clarke was appointed as manager, Christie is adamant that every Celtic player sees Killie as a viable threat to their ambitions of winning an eighth successive title.“We’ll treat Kilmarnock with respect because they are where they are on merit – this isn’t a fluke,” said Christie, according to Daily Mail.Mikey Johnston, CelticJohnston is disappointed after being injured Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team’s victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.“They’ve played some good football and they’re always such a hard team to come up against. They’ve done really well. Their manager has done a brilliant job, although I think you saw glimpses of that last season.”“The boys in the dressing room have been saying the whole league is now more competitive; there are no easy games, home or away. You have to be on top of your game to do well against anyone.”“Out of all the teams at the top of the league, they’re the team with the least pressure on them because – with all due respect – they’re not expected to be there.”“It’s probably a nicer feeling to be coming in without that pressure, but we’re used to the pressure at Celtic and of wanting to be at the top and win every game.”“That’s why it hurts so much when we don’t win, like the other night at Motherwell. We’ll be ready to deal with that pressure on Saturday and hopefully, we’ll pick up the win.”last_img read more

Six years after the school in the Navalgaon Pipliya village of the district was founded, the children continue to study in an abysmal condition. While a few students ensconce on a green rug, others sit uncomfortably on the floor. “The authorities have been apprised of the situation.

New emulator lets you play any NES game in 3D

first_imgThe Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was a very successful piece of gaming hardware for Nintendo. Released in 1983, it was still available to buy until 2008 and over the course of its lifetime over 800 officially licensed games were released. Many gamers still play some of those titles today, be it on original hardware, a Retron 5, re-releases on other machines, or through an emulator.A new emulator has appeared on the scene recently that adds an unusual new feature: you can play NES games in 3D. The emulator is called 3DNes and it achieves the pseudo-3D effect by converting each 2D sprite in a game into a layered 3D object. The end result varies in how good it looks on a per game basis, but this gameplay video below gives you a good idea of how it works:One interesting side effect of converting all the sprites to 3D objects is that it allows for a first-person mode to be activated. Here’s Super Mario Bros. running with the player viewing the action from Mario’s perspective:The emulator should work with any NES game, although the test pool used consists of the most popular titles, including Dr. Mario, Legend of Ninja, Mega Man, Super Mario Brothers 3, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, Contra, and Castlevania.If you’d like to try the emulator out for yourself just head on over to the website where it is hosted. It’s a little slow to load and you may get a script warning, which you must continue past, but it does work. And if development continues, this could be a NES emulator everyone wants to play their favorite game (in first-person mode) with.last_img read more

I am a story teller not a writer Laila Wadia

first_imgA multilingual storyteller born in India, Laila Wadia now lives in Italy where she teaches English at the University of Triest. A translator, interpreter, journalist, poet, playwright and screenplay writer, Wadia has won several awards and has published numerous novels and short story collections in Italian on intercultural issues, migration, food and women’s issues including ‘Il testimone di Pirano’ (Infinito Edizioni), and ‘Kitchensutra’.When asked what inspired her to start writing, Wadia said, “I decided to become a writer as a challenge. I had moved to Italy and someone told me I’d never be able to master the language.” Also Read – Add new books to your shelfWadia, who has published books like  ‘Pecore Nere’ (Laterza), ‘Mondopentola’ (Cosmo Iannone), ‘Amiche per la pelle’ and ‘Se tutte le donne’ (Barbera 2012), feels that engaging in the act of discovery while writing is just as important as having a fine plot. “I work out a loose plot and then allow my characters to take over”, says Wadia, who feels that it is a writer’s job to create. “The hardest thing about writing any book is deciding when to stop”, she added.Talking about her latest book ‘Kitchensutra’ she said, “‘Kitchensutra’ is a translingual book of erotic food poetry. It’s haikus on love, passion, language and with a two tiered reading: earthly love and divine love. My inspiration was drawn from Rumi and Pablo Neruda.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive ‘Babylon Sisters’ is an adaptation of Wadia’s novel ‘Amiche per la pelle’ will be released as a movie later this year for which she has also written the screenplay. The movie is about four immigrants of Indian origin, Croatian, Turkish and Kurdish Chinese who live with their families on the outskirts of Trieste. ‘Babylon Sisters’ will be directed by Gigi Roccati who won the award for the best documentary for his direction in The Road to Kabul.Writing characters of the opposite sex is one of the most difficult things a writer has to deal with, while writing. Speaking on this topic, Wadia said, “I am a very feminine writer but I also wrote a fictional biography of a man. Writing means living the character’s life so once I got into the life of the protagonist, it was okay.”Wadia admits that while she herself has not faced the much dreaded writer’s block, she constantly asks herself if people would want to read what she writes.“Success is not a goal for me” says Wadia. “Conversations and bridging cultures is what I strive for. I am a story teller not a writer. A writer writes, a storyteller listens and converses.”last_img read more

Augmented Reality is Taking Over Radiology Training

first_imgFeature | Information Technology | February 27, 2019 | Tatyana Shavel Augmented Reality is Taking Over Radiology Training Augmented reality can be used to educate and train radiologists, improving their expertise and skills The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s. News | Artificial Intelligence | August 05, 2019 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial… read more Tatyana ShavelMedical images take a significant part in patient diagnostics across different care cycle points, including regular screening, diagnosis verification, perioperative planning and follow-up checkup. Accordingly, scanning equipment vendors and clinical stakeholders invest their efforts into improving the quality of the images across different modalities, accelerating their automatic processing algorithms, or even enabling preliminary analysis and segmentation to facilitate accurate scan interpretation and avoid costly medical errors.Nevertheless, interpretation errors still happen. Due to the complexity of the radiology field itself, a specialist may fail to identify an abnormality on an image, incorrectly classify it or report the findings. For example, one of the studies dedicated to radiology practice errors estimates 3 to 5 percent of cognitive and perceptual errors occur daily across different modalities, such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound and X-ray.While it is impossible to get rid of misinterpretation cases completely, there might be a way to reduce their occurrence with the help of technology, namely augmented reality (AR). It can be used to educate and train radiologists, improving their expertise and skills by allowing them to review a bigger variety of medical cases as well as refresh human anatomy variations. EchoPixel allows radiologists to see CT, MRI and ultrasound scans in 3-D. Research: Mammographic Interpretation Training StudyAccording to a 2018 study, conventional training for radiologists still lacks a technical approach. In particular, they report that mammogram interpretation training highly depends on manual segmentation and transcription. With this approach, radiologists and pathologists in training may not receive real-time feedback on their progress and thus won’t be able to grasp some of the interpretation process intricacies emerging from the more advanced training method.The researchers review the hypothesis of using augmented reality to create an automated training system, backing up current screening education techniques. They propose a system with a cyclic data flow, stylus support for precise interaction with the image, and a virtual menu for easy navigation.One of its key advantages is that such a system will be independent of a workstation, introducing convenience and mobility into screening education. A trainee shouldn’t switch between different stations to view an image in one location and record their annotations somewhere else, as it usually happens. The system allows superimposing scans onto different surfaces, offering an uninterrupted learning process.Moreover, the proposed augmented reality training solution allows training progress by recording and saving of achieved transcriptions and annotated markers. It then processes results for further training or post-training.Since the system should be able to collect and recognize each operation made by the trainee, the separate features of abnormalities, such as breast carcinomas, can be analyzed individually and automatically. Apart from improving screening education, this ability can also boost the research and development process in clinical trials for oncology treatment or offer more precise post-treatment condition evaluation.With its real-time feedback feature, the proposed AR system will allow both starting and mature health specialists to improve their image interpretation performance. And if it will be able to accumulate training data and analyze it continuously, the system can be further used in clinical trials and decision-making.

Multimodality 3-D SystemCalifornia-based EchoPixel specifies the limitations in current patient anatomy visualization approaches that force pathologists and radiologists to solve three-dimensional problems by analyzing two-dimensional images. Usually, medical specialists have to process CT, MRI and other medical scans in their minds, integrating a series of received 2-D images into a 3-D picture of the inspected organ, vessel or tissue as well as the surrounding anatomy. This difference in actual and perceived image may hinder the diagnosis verification or even lead to image misinterpretation.The company bridges this gap and addresses the 2-D image interpretation complexity issue with their proprietary True 3D system. This solution works with HP Zvr displays, which feature four cameras to trace the user’s head motions and 3-D glasses to transform patient-specific medical images into interactive and three-dimensional AR models. Radiologists and other health specialists can view medical scans with organs, tissues, vessels and suspected abnormalities in 3-D, interact with them in real time, and even dissect the chosen objects with the help of a stylus.The system creates an unprecedented opportunity for a wide range of medical specialists, facilitating diagnostics, surgical planning and medical education. Radiologists and pathologists can use True 3D to amplify their expertise, gain deeper human anatomy understanding, refresh knowledge and review questionable cases from a different perspective. For example, the system can be particularly useful for tumor response quantification and evaluation after the chemotherapy course across many oncology types and stages.Currently, PennState Health and Texas A&M Health Science Center use the True 3D system in research and medical training.

UK Hearing into CIA drones would dent US ties

first_imgNoor Khan, a 27-year-old whose father was killed by a drone strike in northwest Pakistan in March 2011, has asked Britain’s High Court to examine whether U.K. intelligence officials assisted the action and may be liable for prosecution.His legal advisers want a judge to determine whether Britain’s secret eavesdropping agency, the Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ, has passed location data to guide CIA drones, and whether the U.K. has agreed to a secret policy of assistance to the program of targeting militants.“Adjudicating on the claim plainly would have significant impact on the conduct of the United Kingdom’s relations with both the United States and Pakistan,” Eadie told a three-day hearing at the High Court. “It would also be likely to have such an impact on relations between the United States and Pakistan. That impact would be felt in an acutely controversial, sensitive and important context.”Since 2004, CIA drones have targeted suspected militants with missile strikes in the Pakistani tribal regions, killing hundreds of people. The program is controversial because of questions about its legality, the number of civilians it has killed and its impact on Pakistan’s sovereignty. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Previously, intelligence sharing between Britain and the U.S. was put under strain after a London court made public details of abuse that ex-Guantanamo Bay detainee Binyam Mohamed alleges he suffered at the hands of U.S. intelligence officials. Mohamed had accused the British government of complicity in his alleged torture.Britain’s Foreign Office said that a decision on whether to grant Khan a hearing is expected to be handed down by the High Court before the year’s end.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Sponsored Stories Khan’s father, Malik Daud Khan, was attending a meeting of local elders in Datta Khel, in North Waziristan, when it was hit by a missile fired from an unmanned drone, killing around 40 people.British officials have not commented publicly on their policy toward CIA drone strikes. U.S. officials do not publicly acknowledge the covert program.Pakistani officials have urged the U.S. to halt its program and to instead relay intelligence gathered by the pilotless aircraft to Pakistani jets and ground forces so that they can target militants themselves.Kat Craig, legal director of the Reprieve charity, which is representing Khan, said that her client “merely wishes to know what role the British intelligence services play in this game of one-sided Russian roulette.”“He is calling for the veil of secrecy around Britain’s drones policy to be lifted so that he can keep his community safe. We share his concerns about the lack of accountability, and the morality of the U.K. being dragged into an illegal attack on a country with whom we are not at war,” she said.Last year, British spy agencies were accused of sharing sensitive information with Moammar Gadhafi’s regime in Libya, leading to the torture or rendition of two Libyan men and their families. The case is now the subject of an inquiry by British police.last_img read more
