Moroccos National Phosphate Company Ramps Up Production to Meet Demand

Rabat – Morocco’s national company for the mining of phosphate, OCP, has been planning for an elevation in demand for phosphate-enhanced fertilizer as the world population increases by more than 53 percent by the year 2050, according to an article by Alyaoum24. The extra provisions will double the company’s mining capabilities. OCP, which also participates in Meknes’ International Exhibition of Agriculture, said the firm was one of the first African companies interested in reducing the carbon footprint from its activities by reducing its emissions of polluting gases and adopting an environmentally responsible way to manage waste. In 2014, the Moroccan company recycled more than 19 tons of metal waste. OCP’s strategy to improve its operational use of water includes the firm’s desalination plant Jorf Lasfar and initiatives in many Moroccan cities.The company said its plans to continue green practices correspond with King Mohammed VI’s Green Morocco program, which employs farmers in the kingdom and other African countries through its soil study, which has gathered 26,000 samples from 6.8 million hectares of land to evaluate the farmland’s fertilizer needs.Mostafa Terrab, CEO of the OCP, said earlier this year that his company would be the world’s largest producer of fertilizers by the year 2017 as result of contributions from four new complexes tasked with creating the product essential for the world’s agriculture industry.Morocco holds nearly 75 percent of the world’s phosphate reserves, according to the United States Geological Survey.ONP was founded in the year 1920 and its managers run operations from Casablanca. read more

UN urges increased social spending in AsiaPacific to sustain robust economic growth

“Governments must embrace this opportunity to secure the gains of the economic rebound by investing in social programmes that directly benefit people hardest hit by the crisis, act to reduce poverty, and create a more sustainable economy,” said Noeleen Heyzer, Under Secretary-General and Executive Secretary of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), when she launched the report in Bangkok.The Economic and Social Survey of Asia and the Pacific 2010 report, an annual publication of ESCAP, provides governments in the Asia-Pacific region, where 62 per cent of the world’s population live with a road map towards a more inclusive and sustainable development path.According to the survey, even at the height of the economic crisis, Asia and the Pacific was still the fastest-growing region in the world, a trend supported mainly by fiscal stimulus packages made available by the region’s biggest economies.The economic growth outlook for 2010 has improved significantly, with the region’s developing economies forecast to expand by seven per cent. China will be ahead of the pack with 9.5 per cent growth followed by India’s 8.3 per cent, according to the report.The survey, however, points out that rising inflationary pressures, especially concerning food products, and asset price bubbles in a number of countries make 2010 a complex year for policy makers who will have to balance sustaining the momentum of growth with financial stability.While monetary tightening measures may be necessary to restrain inflationary pressures, policymakers must be cautious about withdrawing fiscal stimulus packages lest the fledgling recovery process is disrupted, according to the report.It also recommends the use of capital controls to moderate short-term capital inflows – the result of a massive expansion of liquidity in Western countries – which have created asset bubbles, inflationary pressures and exchange rate increases in the region’s developing economies.“We know from experience following the 1997 Asian financial crisis that it may be years before the poorest people are able to recover from the past two year’s global crisis; governments need to maintain programmes to help people recover their assets and livelihoods,” Dr. Heyzer added.According to the survey, a sustained, long-term development for all economies within the region will have to rely on creating new engines of growth by rebalancing the region with greater regional consumption through increased intra-regional trade, accelerating the development of an Asia-Pacific consumer market.“This is the moment when the Asia-Pacific region can assure the long-term benefits of the recovery by creating a sustainable, inter-connected, greener, regional economy, while reducing the social and economic disparities which left it vulnerable to such [a] crisis,” said Dr Heyzer. “The region has the opportunity to strengthen its economy, its environment, its society, and better connect itself,” she added.The report makes a number of regional policy recommendations for inclusive and sustainable growth, such as strengthening social protection and enhancing financial inclusion.Increased social spending would directly support income security for households by providing food security, education and access to health care, reducing the need by poorer families to maintain precautionary savings to protect against adversity. These families would then be able to contribute more to local economies and invest more in their own development, the report notes.“The region has close to one billion people living in poverty at this very moment. The more people we lift out of poverty today, the larger consumer class and developed markets we create for the future,” said Dr. Heyzer.Jomo Kwame Sundaram, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Economic Development, said Asian and Pacific countries also needed to invest more on the improvement of their infrastructures..He noted that more social spending should go to programmes aimed at boosting food production and to projects that promoted the use of environmentally-friendly technologies..Mr. Sundaram also called for initiatives that promoted “financial inclusion” to ensure that poorer people were benefiting from the economic growth. Microcredit lending schemes would help make capital available to the poor, he told reporters in New York. 6 May 2010Governments in Asia and the Pacific should raise spending on social programmes to sustain the region’s robust economic recovery and ensure that the benefits of the revived growth trickle down to people most affected by the global financial crisis, according to a United Nations report released today. read more

Isis has blown up the mosque where its own leader declared himself

first_img 17 Comments 20,528 Views Thursday 22 Jun 2017, 6:57 AM Mosul has been the scene of ferocious fighting. Source: Alexandra HowlandThe “Hadba” was completed in 1172 and had distinctive ornamental bands of brickwork wrapping around its cylindrical shaft. It started listing centuries ago and has long been considered an endangered monument.The minaret, with its unmistakeable shape, was the symbol of the city and featured in many local shops signs and advertisements. It gave its name to countless restaurants, companies and sports clubs.When IS imposed its tyrannic brand of sharia, or Islamic law, in the early stages of its “caliphate”, it destroyed several key heritage sites in Mosul, including the main museum and shrines to Jonah and Seth.It reportedly rigged the “Hadba”, which it sees as the subject of a cult that transgresses its own regressive and ultra-conservative brand of Islam, but had been prevented from blowing it up by the local population.Foretold disaster“The minaret of Al-Hadba has been here forever, it is part of the history of Mosul, it is the symbol of the city,” Ahmed Thilij Hamed, a 49-year-old resident of a neighbourhood near the Old City, told AFP on Monday.It had become clear to most in Mosul that IS would not give up its last redoubt in the city without destroying landmarks whose capture by the Iraqi forces would have dealt them a massive symbolic blow.“When the minaret is destroyed, it will be the final blow to Mosul’s heritage because all the other landmarks are gone,” Hamed said. “I will be very sorry, I cannot imagine such a moment.”Staff Lieutenant General Abdulwahab al-Saadi, one of the top commanders of the Counter-Terrorism Service that has spearheaded the fighting against IS, explained why he thought the Nuri mosque and nearby “Al-Hadba” would almost inevitably be destroyed.“The mosque has some symbolism for the terrorist gangs, being the mosque where Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi gave his first sermon” as IS leader, he told AFP on Monday from his command post on the edge of Mosul.“Perhaps they won’t want to leave this place that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi took to the security forces and maybe they’ll send a message accusing Iraqi units of of destroying them,” he predicted.The US-led coalition which carries out daily air strikes and has advisers on the ground supporting the Mosul operation condemned the destruction.“This is a crime against the people of Mosul and all of Iraq, and is an example of why this brutal organisation must be annihilated,” said Major General Joseph Martin.- © AFP 2017Read: Constable charged with having indecent images of children is dismissed from Met PoliceRead: Prime Minister demands ‘immediate answers’ as forest fires continue to rage in Portugal Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Jun 22nd 2017, 6:57 AM Share7 Tweet Email JIHADISTS YESTERDAY BLEW up Mosul’s iconic, leaning minaret and the adjacent mosque where their leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in 2014 declared himself “caliph” in his only public appearance, Iraqi officials said.The Islamic State group swiftly issued a statement via its Amaq propaganda agency blaming a US strike, but the US-led coalition condemned the destruction as a crime against “the people of Mosul and all of Iraq”.Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said the destruction of the sites was “an official declaration of defeat” from the jihadists in the eight-month-old battle for Mosul.“Our forces were advancing toward their targets deep in the Old City and when they got to within 50 metres of the Nuri mosque, Daesh (IS) committed another historical crime by blowing up the Nuri mosque and the Hadba” mosque, Staff Lieutenant General Abdulamir Yarallah, the overall commander of the Mosul offensive, said in a statement.The destruction of two of Mosul’s best-known landmarks comes on the fourth day of an Iraqi offensive backed by the US-led coalition to take the Old City, where holdout jihadists are making a bloody last stand.It adds to a long list of Iraqi heritage sites and monuments the jihadist organisation has destroyed in Iraq and Syria since Baghdadi created his “caliphate” straddling both countries, almost exactly three years ago.IS proclaimed its self-styled “caliphate” in June 2014, after sweeping across Iraq’s Sunni Arab heartland, an unprecedented experiment in jihadist statehood.The Iraq-born Baghdadi appeared at the Nuri mosque in Mosul, Iraq’s second city, days later to declare himself “caliph” and urge the world’s Muslims to move in.It remains the last public appearance to date for the jihadist supremo, whose fate and whereabouts are currently unclear and whose “state” has been shrinking for two years.‘Iraq’s Tower of Pisa’Iraqi forces on Sunday launched an assault on the Old City of Mosul, eight months into a huge offensive to take back the northern city from the jihadists, who had made it their de facto Iraqi capital.The ancient minaret known as “Al-Hadba” (Hunchback) lies next to the Nuri mosque and was the most loved and recognisable landmark in Mosul, sometimes referred to as Iraq’s Tower of Pisa.center_img By AFP Image: Xinhua News Agency/PA Images Image: Xinhua News Agency/PA Images Short URL Isis has blown up the mosque where its own leader declared himself ‘caliph’ Jihadists also destroyed an iconic, leaning minaret. last_img read more

Man who raped exwife in dungeon jailed for 13 years

first_img Jun 23rd 2017, 4:27 PM By Órla Ryan Friday 23 Jun 2017, 4:27 PM Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 17 Comments Share116 Tweet Email File photo Source: Shutterstock/YAKOBCHUK VIACHESLAVWarning: Some readers may find aspects of this case distressingA MAN WHO kidnapped his ex-wife, tied her up and raped her in a hidden ‘dungeon’ in London has today been jailed for 13 years.The man was found guilty following a retrial in what is a rare ‘victimless prosecution’ for rape – where the trial was held without the woman’s testimonial – following an investigation by detectives from the Metropolitan Police Service.Following the retrial at Snaresbrook Crown Court, the man was found guilty yesterday of two counts of rape, kidnap and false imprisonment and was sentenced to a total of 13 years’ imprisonment.The offences took place at a premises in Hackney on 15 October 2014. The court heard that the victim had arranged to meet her ex-husband so she could take her granddaughter out. Once at the venue, he sprayed her with a substance – believed to be mace – which left her unconscious.Police said he then bound her hands, feet and mouth before carrying her into a hidden office room. She was then dropped into the dungeon.Once there the defendant cut off the victim’s clothes and raped her twice. She was then left alone, before eventually cutting herself free and calling police.Pressure from family The 999 call, lasting over 20 minutes, was played to the court during the trial. Officers who came to the woman’s aid had to call for further assistance in order to break into the premises.Once inside they could hear the victim screaming and found her in a distressed state in the dungeon, which had been heavily concealed. Access was from a small hatch concealed within the base of wardrobe.The victim was interviewed by specially trained detectives. Officers believe she came under significant pressure from family members to withdraw the allegations, however legislation enabled prosecutors to continue the trial without her testimonial.During the retrial, the defendant did not give evidence.Detective Inspector Neil Rawlinson of the Met’s Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse (SOECA) Command, said: “It is important to note that the victim in this case was fully engaged throughout the police investigation but at the point of the original trial, felt unable to attend.Due to the overwhelming evidence gathered by my officers, which supported all aspects of the victims account, the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) agreed to proceed with the trial without the victim – something which is extremely rare for rape. My officers worked tirelessly with forensic experts to gather and present the best evidence possible, with their tenacity being reflected in this outstanding outcome at court.“Offenders often exert power and control to silence their victims but this sentence shows that we can give scared victims a voice and bring offenders to justice despite their perceived power. I would urge anyone who has been the victim of sexual assault to report it to police – we can provide specially trained officers to support victims and obtain the best evidence possible.”A second defendant, Steven Hill, 53, was found not guilty of rape and false imprisonment at the original trial. The jury was unable to reach a decision on one charge of kidnap, for which he stood trial again. He was subsequently found not guilty of kidnap yesterday.Read: North Korea says it is the ‘biggest victim’ in US student’s deathRead: Man sentenced to life imprisonment for murdering his partner’s two-year-old son Man who raped ex-wife in dungeon jailed for 13 years Police officers believe the woman came under significant pressure from family members to withdraw the allegations. 34,015 Views last_img read more

Grant Eells, who comes to walk on the trail often, said that he was happy the section was opened. “I had to go around,” Eells said. The section closure changed a lot of people’s normal course.Danielle Colwell and Molly Smith, both of Camas, normally don’t walk on the trail but came to “escape school” and enjoy the weather. “It’s a gorgeous day,” Colwell said. A section of the trail near Tidewater Cove is still closed due to extensive damage from the flooding. There is a detour set up near Columbia Way for those using that portion of the trail.

first_img Related Content January 25, 2012 — InSightec Ltd. announced that it has submitted a premarket approval application (PMA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its ExAblate treatment of pain palliation of bone metastases. ExAblate uses magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) to treat the pain caused by bone metastases non-invasively and without ionizing radiation.Over 60 percent of cancer patients suffer from painful bone metastases. Of these, 30 percent will not respond to radiation therapy. ExAblate was investigated as an option for these patients. The PMA submission was based on a two-arm randomized controlled trial comparing patients undergoing ExAblate’s MR guided focused ultrasound for palliation of painful bone metastases with patients undergoing no treatment.Patients who had no response to the sham treatment were later allowed to undergo an ExAblate treatment. The FDA also granted an expedited review process for the PMA submission.ExAblate combines high intensity focused ultrasound to thermally ablate tumors and continuous MRI to visualize the anatomy, plan treatment and monitor treatment outcomes in real time.ExAblate is the only MRgFUS system with FDA approval, granted in 2004 for uterine fibroids. It also received European CE marking for uterine fibroids, bone metastases, and adenomyosis.

Australias decadelong love affair with Queen Mar

first_imgAustralia’s decade-long love affair with Queen Mary 2 began on 20 February 2007, when the Cunard flagship sailed into Sydney Harbour for the first time. Our cruise industry was just about to embark on its era of phenomenal growth; just over 250,000 passengers were sailing at the time, a number that has now swollen to 1.2 million Australians.To celebrate 10 years since Queen Mary 2‘s inaugural visit – as well as the cruise industry expansion and the role of Cunard’s parent company, Carnival Australia, in this growth – media, trade and industry guests, including the CEO of the Port, CLIA, the Navy, tourism organisations and Infrastructure NSW, were invited aboard the legendary ocean liner for a Champagne afternoon tea.Despite the rainy Sydney day, crowds were milling around the 2691-passenger ship, with her sister, Queen Elizabeth just visible through the fog at Garden Island. Guests, including LATTE, were given a tour of the newly remastered Queen Mary 2 to take in her AU$160 million worth of improvements, including the extensive new and vibrant customised carpets, and the spacious eating areas. Among the highlights were the largest library at sea and the elegance of the double-height Britannia restaurant.The guests then assembled in the Queen’s Room to enjoy Champagne, delicate pastries, cucumber sandwiches and scones, served with jam and clotted cream (2.5 million scones have been served in the decade since her Sydney debut). The full-beam Queen’s Room is a rarity at sea, encompassing the largest dance floor at sea. Carnival Australia Executive Chairman, Ann Sherry AO, opened the proceedings, comparing the industry of 2007 with the market of today, while David Rousham, Cunard Vice President International Development, highlighted the results of last year’s remastering.Guests also sipped on a specialty Twinings blend selected for Cunard, Traditional Afternoon, while enjoying a dance showcase from the ship’s professional performers and the music of the live band.Queen Mary 2 is currently on her 132-night world cruise from New York, returning to Sydney on 2 March before continuing on to Hong Kong.last_img read more
