Fuel Prices to Fall by MAD 0205 Next Week

Rabat – Starting next week, diesel and gasoline prices will drop by MAD 0.205 in all Moroccan gas stations, the Ministry of Energy and Mines released in a statement.According to the same source, the prices of diesel and gasoline have already started to decline from Thursday, February 22. Diesel dropped about MAD 0.12 and gasoline MAD 0.13.Lahcen Daoudi, the Minister of General Affairs and Governance, recently said that prices at the pump in Morocco were “forced to fall,” following the drop of oil prices over the past weeks.   The minister, who closely follows the fluctuations of oil prices on a “daily basis,” noted the decline of the latter from USD 70 to USD 62 per barrel. He also pointed out that prices will remain the same until the end of February.After the liberalization of fuel prices, the ministry launcheda new initiative last September that allows drivers to check the recent fuel price trends at the pump.Daoudi’s solution of showing consumers all available prices will keep them informed by allowing them “to choose the cheapest petrol stations.”The minister insisted the information “must” be available for citizens. However, he stated during a press conference, held in June 2017, that “citizens do not take advantage of the liberalization” of hydrocarbon prices enacted in December 2015.The minister alleged that it was the Moroccan government, rather,that had “not provided conditions for good competition.” He also announced that while distributors can change the price of hydrocarbons, they must alert the ministry before doing so. read more

Marking International Day top UN officials urge greater investments in women

8 March 2008Top United Nations officials commemorated this year’s International Women’s Day by calling on countries to invest more in women and girls, warning that failing to do so will undermine efforts to achieve global development targets. In his message for the Day, Secretary-General drew attention to the “serious” gap between policy and practice in many countries when it comes to gender equality, as reflected in a lack of resources and insufficient budgetary allocations. “This failure of funding undermines not only our endeavours for gender equality and women’s empowerment as such; it also holds back our efforts to reach all the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs),” he said, referring to the global pledges to slash poverty and other social ills, all by 2015. “As we know from long and indisputable experience, investing in women and girls has a multiplier effect on productivity and sustained economic growth,” he added, noting that no measure is more important in advancing education and health, including the prevention of HIV/AIDS, or as likely to improve nutrition, or reduce infant and maternal mortality.Thoraya Ahmed Obaid, Executive Director of the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), agreed that “if we want to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, we need more investments in women and girls.“Whether we are looking at it from a human rights, political or economic point of view, the conclusion is the same: It makes sense to invest in women. The returns are high for women themselves and for the world at large,” she said. However, not only were investments still not being made to the extent they should be, they were actually declining in some areas, such as maternal health and family planning. “Improving women’s well-being cannot be accomplished without improving their health, particularly their reproductive health,” she stressed, noting that by ensuring universal access to reproductive health, it will be possible to reduce poverty, reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS, and meet the need for family planning. “By investing in women’s reproductive health and well-being, we will stand a better chance of achieving the MDGs and making gender equality a reality.”Part of the struggle for women’s rights and gender equality is the urgent need to end violence against women in all of its forms, a point highlighted by the acting Executive Director of the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), who drew attention to the UN campaign launched by the Secretary-General on 25 February, UNiTE to End Violence against Women. “The campaign will add value and visibility to the efforts that Governments, women’s and other civil society organizations, UN and donor partners are making to combat gender-based violence and send the message that ending violence against women stands on par with other critical development goals,” said Joanne Sandler.She added that it also comes at a time when the world’s leaders are renewing their commitment to financing for all national development goals, including the MDGs.“Ending violence against women was a missing indicator in the MDGs, owing to the lack of comparable data,” she stated. “It is encouraging, therefore, that the United Nations has also committed to assist countries in efforts to generate the data needed to measure the extent of violence against women and girls. “Together with proven evidence of what works and the financial and technical resources needed to support countries to meet the implementation challenge, there may indeed be an end in sight to the pandemic of violence against women and girls ? and genuine progress on achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment,” Ms. Sandler said.From Afghanistan to Sudan, women around the world are celebrating the Day through events at the local and national levels. In the strife-torn Sudanese region of Darfur, staff of the new African Union-UN mission there (UNAMID) handed out T-shirts and posters to women in the central market in El Fasher, and held a procession along with Sudanese female police officers and local residents. Hundreds of women in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar marched for peace, while their sisters in the capital gathered in Kabul’s women’s garden to mark the Day with a UN agency fair, which included films and a performance by child artists. Female counsellors from UN agencies were also on hand to provide advice on health, education and social issues facing the country’s women. read more

Hillary Clintons email server was hit by repeated cyberattack attempts from foreign

WASHINGTON – Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private email server, which stored some 55,000 pages of emails from her time as secretary of state, was the subject of attempted cyberattacks originating in China, South Korea and Germany after she left office in early 2013, according to a congressional document obtained by The Associated Press.While the attempts were apparently blocked by a “threat monitoring” product that Clinton’s employees connected to her network in October 2013, there was a period of more than three months from June to October 2013 when that protection had not been installed, according to a letter from Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee. That means her server was possibly vulnerable to cyberattacks during that time.Johnson’s letter to Victor Nappe, CEO of SECNAP, the company that provided the threat monitoring product, seeks a host of documents relating to the company’s work on Clinton’s server and the nature of the cyber intrusions detected. Johnson’s committee is investigating Clinton’s email arrangement.Clinton has not said what, if any, firewall or threat protection was used on her email server before June 2013, including the time she was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013 and the server was kept in her home in the New York City suburbs.A February 2014 email from SECNAP reported that malicious software based in China “was found running an attack against” Clinton’s server. In total, Senate investigators have found records describing three such attempts linked to China, one based in Germany and one originating in South Korea. The attacks occurred in 2013 and 2014. The letter describes four attacks, but investigators have since found records about a fifth, officials who were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly said.It was not immediately clear whether the attempted intrusions into Clinton’s server were serious espionage threats or the sort of nuisance attacks that hit computer servers the world over. But the new revelations underscore the extent to which any private email server is a target, raising further questions about Clinton’s decision to undertake sensitive government business over private email stored on a homemade system.Any hackers who got access to her server in 2013 or 2014 could have stolen a trove of sensitive email traffic involving the foreign relations of the United States. Thousands of Clinton emails made public under the Freedom of Information Act have been heavily redacted for national security and other reasons.Clinton “essentially circumvented millions of dollars’ worth of cybersecurity investment that the federal government puts within the State Department,” said Justin Harvey, chief security officer of Fidelis Cybersecurity.“She wouldn’t have had the infrastructure to detect or respond to cyber attacks from a nation-state,” he said. “Those attacks are incredibly sophisticated, and very hard to detect and contain. And if you have a private server, it’s very likely that you would be compromised.”A spokesman for the Clinton campaign did not answer detailed questions from The Associated Press about the cyber intrusions. Instead, spokesman Brian Fallon attacked Johnson by linking him to the House Benghazi committee inquiry, which the campaign dismissed in a recent media ad as politically motivated.“Ron Johnson is ripping a page from the House Benghazi Committee’s playbook and mounting his own, taxpayer-funded sham of an investigation with the sole purpose of attacking Hillary Clinton politically,” campaign spokesman Fallon said by email. “The Justice Department is already conducting a review concerning the security of her server equipment, and Ron Johnson has no business interfering with it for his own partisan ends.”The FBI is investigating whether national security was compromised by Clinton’s email arrangement.In June 2013, after Clinton had left office, the server was moved from her Chappaqua, New York, home to a data centre in northern New Jersey, where it was maintained by a Denver technology company, Platte River Networks, records show.In June 2013, Johnson’s letter says, Platte River hired SECNAP Network Security Corp. to use a product called CloudJacket SMB, which is designed to block network access by “even the most determined hackers,” according to company literature. But the product was not up and running until October, according to Johnson’s letter, raising questions about how vulnerable Clinton’s server was during the interim.SECNAP is not a well-known computer security provider. The company’s website and promotional literature describe CloudJacket as a monitoring system designed to counter unauthorized intrusions and monitor threats around the clock. Corporate documents show SECNAP has been in existence since at least 2002, selling computer spam filter and firewall products.A SECNAP representative declined to comment, citing company policy.The AP reported last month that Russia-linked hackers sent Clinton emails in 2011 — when she was still secretary of state — loaded with malware that could have exposed her computer if she opened the attachments. It is not known if she did.The attacks Johnson mentions in his letter are different, according to government officials familiar with them. They were probing Clinton’s server directly, not through email.___Follow Ken Dilanian on Twitter at https://twitter.com/KenDilanianAP Hillary Clinton’s email server was hit by repeated cyberattack attempts from foreign countries by Ken Dilanian, Jack Gillum And Stephen Braun, The Associated Press Posted Oct 7, 2015 7:56 pm MDT Last Updated Oct 7, 2015 at 9:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Dont forget oil sector Saskatchewan premier watches Ottawa on Bombardier

A Bombardier plant is shown in Montreal, Thursday, October 29, 2015. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Graham Hughes REGINA – Talk of federal aid to help pull Bombardier Inc. out of a nosedive has caught the attention of Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall and the tanking energy sector.Wall says that if the federal government is thinking about a bailout package for Bombardier, it could consider helping the oil-and-gas industry, which is struggling due to falling oil prices.“We have seen tens of thousands of jobs lost in the energy sector — obviously not as many in Saskatchewan as in Alberta — but it’s affecting Alberta, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland and Labrador and one of the most important economic sectors in the country,” Wall said Thursday in an interview with The Canadian Press.“The message from Saskatchewan today would be (that) before another bailout — this one may be potentially a $1-billion bailout for one company — is considered by the federal government, what about the energy sector?”Wall said Ottawa could pump infrastructure money into provinces hurt by the economic downturn or support the Energy East pipeline project.Energy East would ship Alberta crude oil to refineries in Eastern Canada and from there to international markets.The premier also said the federal government could help with an oilwell cleanup project he has proposed. Wall pitched a plan to Ottawa earlier this month for $156 million to clean up old wells that aren’t being used as a way to help create jobs for laid-off oilpatch workers.Bombardier announced Wednesday that it plans to lay off 7,000 employees around the world, including 2,830 in Canada — most of them in Quebec.Transport Minister Marc Garneau has said the government will decide “in due course” whether to give financial aid to Bombardier.The federal government considers Bombardier (TSX:BBD) an “anchor firm” to Canada’s aerospace industry because it supports a supply hub that employs tens of thousands more workers, according to internal economic development documents.Wall said the energy industry “is an anchor sector for this entire country, creating thousands of jobs directly and indirectly, right across Canada.”“So, no, I don’t think that’s a good enough reason, at least to the extent that they’re not prepared to do something additional, something supportive for the energy sector. I don’t think they should be engaged in talks of billion-dollar bailouts to one particular company.”Ottawa has lent money to Bombardier in the past. Last fall, Industry Canada said Bombardier had received $1.3 billion in repayable contributions since 1966 and had repaid $543 million as of Dec. 31, 2014.Bombardier CEO Alain Bellemare continued to press Ottawa on Wednesday to come through once again. Bellemare said that Bombardier may have borrowed about $1 billion since the mid-1980s, but it generated more than $15 billion in government tax revenue over that period. by Jennifer Graham, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 18, 2016 10:10 am MDT Last Updated Feb 18, 2016 at 2:03 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Don’t forget oil sector: Saskatchewan premier watches Ottawa on Bombardier read more

Pochettino believes relationship with players now stronger

No one looks at you, your wife says ‘maybe he is better’, understand the metaphor?Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“They are confident of course but they are not attached to me only. It is about the club. If I believe that Dele Alli is going to sign or a different player is going to sign a new contract because of me, it is a bad feeling or I am so wrong in my head.”“Of course it is always nice to hear the players say one of the reasons is the manager, one of the reasons is the chairman, one of the reasons is the new stadium, so exciting,” Pochettino said.“One of the reasons I wanted rather to listen – I want to play for Tottenham to make history, to touch the glory with this club and with this badge.“‘Now I am so happy with my manager and I am going to give my best’ but there are going to be days we won’t be happy because we are human.”Having currently secured the fifth position, five points off Premier League-leading Manchester City, Spurs are o their to Wolverhampton this Saturday.last_img read more

No 11 USC tops Washington

first_imgSEATTLE — Emotionally drained, Keith Price spoke softly with his eyes red and his body battered. Trying to carry Washington and making too many mistakes along the way left Price a wreck. “Mentally it’s rough dealing with something like this, knowing that you had an opportunity to win the game and I mess it up, and on several occasions,” Price said. “I’ll grow from this. I’ve never really had to deal with stuff like this before and it’s good for me.”Price committed three turnovers in the fourth quarter to short-circuit Washington’s attempts to rally from a 17-point deficit, and No. 11 USC held on for a 24-14 win over the Huskies on Saturday. The final two turnovers charged to Price were a matter of situation, with a forced passed getting tipped for an interception and Price fumbling on a late scramble with 2 minutes remaining as he was hit from the side during a final frantic drive by the Huskies. But it was his fumble inside the USC 5 with 11 minutes left that ended Washington’s best chance at making things uncomfortable for the Trojans after the Huskies trailed 24-7 at halftime. Down by 10, Washington (3-3, 1-2 Pac-12) was on the cusp of making it a one possession game with a first-and-goal at the USC 6. The Huskies had run the ball on six straight plays and used a third-down completion to fullback Jonathan Amosa for 9 yards to get inside the Trojans 10. Bishop Sankey gained 3 yards on first down, and on second down, Price rolled from the pocket. As he pump-faked, Jawanza Starling reached in and stripped the ball free, then fell on it at the USC 4 after two teammates failed to corral the loose ball with 11:03 left.last_img read more

Spiking DC Violence Spurs Calls for Culture Change

first_imgWith two months left in 2015, as of Oct. 9 the District of Columbia has 120 homicides. That figure is 44.6 percent higher than 2014.Benjamin Crump, President of the National Bar Association.Across the United States, families, cities, and communities are grappling with a culture of violence manifested by tens of thousands killed each year by guns, mass murders on campuses, in workplaces and homes, and domestic violence perpetuated primarily against women.For the last three years, Stephanie E. Myers, national co-chair of Black Women for Positive Change, has spearheaded what is growing into a national effort to combat this pervasive violence. She, along with a number of supporters, kicked off the Week of NonViolence on the steps of city hall in D.C. The week of nonviolence is scheduled from Oct.17 to Oct. 25.“This is a very serious issue facing America,” said Myers at a press conference on Oct. 9. “We want to go on record that like Fannie Lou Hamer, we’re sick and tired of young people killed on the street, sick and tired of little girls murdered in their front yard, sick and tired of people attacking our schools, and sick and tired of law enforcement taking advantage because they have weapons and overstep their authority.”She said events and activities will take place in cities such as Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Alexandria and Hampton Roads, Virginia, and St. Louis, Missouri. These events would include a summit on Oct. 17, workshops and seminars and related activities throughout the week. “I believe that it’s time for families, youth, actors, professionals, athletes to come together and that we can change the culture,” Myers said.The regional steering committee for the week is comprised of Christian ministers and priests, Rabbis, Imams and members of other faiths. Alongside them are businesspeople, government officials, residents, and representatives of civil society.Several members of the committee expressed concern about escalating violence on various levels, including homicides in D.C., domestic violence in Prince George’s County, Maryland, and bullying in Alexandria, Virginia.“[Alexandria] Mayor [Bill] Euille and folks from the DMV are working hard to stop violence,” said Ward 5 Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie (D). “According the CDC, the leading cause of death [for young black men between the ages of 15-34] is homicide. I don’t know about you, but that’s a crisis. We need, as governments, to use every resource to stem the tide of violence.”“The culture of violence exists in some American communities,” McDuffie continued. “We cannot arrest ourselves out of this, which is why I advocate a health approach using workforce development, educational agencies, and law enforcement.”Benjamin L. Crump, the attorney representing the families of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, unarmed teens shot and killed by a vigilante in 2012 and a Missouri police officer in 2014, respectively, said, “We want to bring attention to dialogue to address violence that happens way too often.” Dr. Myers took leadership and action to stand up for the community, stand up for our children. I’d rather see a sermon rather than hear a sermon every day of the week. What she’s doing is not for the media or the government. It’s for the children.”Mel Franklin, chairman of the Prince George’s County Council, said the community has needed to hear some uncomfortable truths for a long time. “Prince George’s County has the highest incidence of domestic violence in the state of Maryland,” he said. “The overwhelming majority of cases is caused by men. It’s something we have to own up to. And make men and boys a part of this. How do we solve the problem and use of violence? We need to add men’s absence [from the home] and our own personal responsibility. We have to roll up our sleeves and think out of the box.”“Domestic violence knows no race class or division, knows no boundary,” Franklin continued. “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality . . . This is an opportunity for all of us to join together on an issue that is a clarion call to end violence.”last_img read more

Politicians in trouble for failing to file expenses

first_imgThe returns officer for Nicosia district has asked for the prosecution of a Disy candidate after he failed to file an expenses report following the parliamentary elections in 2016, it emerged on Wednesday.According to a report on the subject by the auditor-general, the Nicosia district returns officer had informed Andreas Pitsillides on June 6, 2016 that he had been fined €500 for his failure, plus €50 per day of delay in filing his expense report. He was also told that failure to do so inside 30 days from the deadline made him guilty of an illegal action.On July 19, and after Pitsillides failed to respond, the returns officer asked the attorney-general for permission to prosecute.
