Marrakech Hosts the Africa International Model United Nations on Sept. 26-28

By  Abderrahim Boualy – OuarzazateAfrica International Model United Nations (NAIMUN) is organizing the 2nd edition of the annual conference which will be held from the 26th-28th of September 2014 at the Faculty of Letters and Humanity in Marrakech, Morocco. The event will bring together 300 bright young students from all over the world with the aim of building a foundation for open dialogue in the spirit of peace and harmony.NAIMUN is the biggest student-run Model United Nations conference in Africa with four sub-brunches in Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria and Egypt founded in 2012. September 26th will be the date when the Middle East and North Africa’s future leaders will meet once again to share, discuss and debate global issues after the Tunisia conference last year. The three-day conference will be a chance for all students to present their case on different topics. Mohammed Taweh, the president of NAIMUN mentioned, “NAIMUN delegates assume the role of Ambassadors or NGO Representatives to defend the interests of their assigned countries/organizations in the best possible manner during the conference”. Moroccan NAIMUN 2014 will be a crucial opportunity for students to increase their knowledge of international diplomacy within the United Nations and the world, develop their communication/debate skills and learn from worldwide experts. The conference will have an enormous impact on the participants’ personal and professional development seeing as they will meet stimulating and inspirational people from over the world.M’rah Mohamed Djamel Eddine Aboubakr, 26 years old, is an Algerian delegate. Mohamed Djamil is expecting NAIMUN to be a great opportunity to share and exchange ideas to contribute to the end of wars, misery and ignorance and to come to the realization that we are all alike no matter where we come from, what language we speak and what culture we follow—we are all one big global family.“Sometimes the people we meet only once in our life leave a strong impression on us and remain forever in our memory despite never seeing them again”, Djamel said.Mohamed Djamel stated that as the conference will not only be a lifetime opportunity to contribute to the future of this planet as a representative of its best interests, but also a great occasion to prepare himself for the best future possible, both professionally and personally.“The program will also be an opportunity for me to help in the promotion of peace and understanding. During my participation in this engaging initiative, I will partake in the gathering and sharing of brilliant minds from all over the world in order to come up with new and original ideas to reinforce the best of thoughts: peace,” Djamel added.Oussama Bouzerouata, 20 years old from Tetouan, Morocco is one of the participants. He is participating in the NAIMUN conference as a Moroccan delegate. He applied for NAIMUN because it is a good opportunity to learn about diplomacy and international relations. Furthermore, it will be a forum of exchanging and sharing ideas with other people from other countries. He states, “I am expecting the conference to be a great experience to express my opinion about global issues”.One of the major problems facing the modern world is the differences of ethnic groups and religions. In the world in which we are living, the first dimension that comes to us is the diversity and the difference in culture, color and religion. In this world we suffer from the non-acceptance of differences between ethnic and religious groups. We are only human by our differences. The key is to learn how to know and communicate with each others’ differences.Concerning the Moroccan and Algerian issue, Djamel said: “I send prayers for unity, peace, love and courage so that Moroccans and Algerians can end the wars and misunderstandings by turning to the realization that we are one big family; brothers and sisters in humanity. We share the same language (Arabic), same religion (Islam) and same territory (Africa).” In this case Djamel Mohamed cited the following verse from holy Quran:“O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.” Quran, 49:13© Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.

18.3 % of Moroccans Speak English

Rabat – English is the second most spoken foreign language in Morocco, according to the most recent data disclosed by High Commission for Planning.The result of the Sixth General Census of Population and Housing (RGPH 2014), which took place from 1 to 20 September 2014, found that English remains less popular than French in Morocco.According to the same source, 66 percent of Moroccans can read and write in French, compared to only 18.3 percent who can read and write in English. The results found that 89.8 % of Moroccans speak Darija (the Moroccan dialect), 96% of whom live in cities and 80.2 % in the countryside.The results also revealed that Amazigh-speaking persons represent 26,7% of the population, 14% of whom speak Tachlhit, 7,6% Tamazight and 4,1% Tarifit.Morocco witnessed a heated debate in recent years over the adoption of English as the country’s first foreign language, rather than French, with several minister and politicians calling for replacing French with English as the primary language of higher education.In March 2014, Moroccan Minister of Higher Education Lahcen Daoudi, announced plans to make the switch from French to English.Abdelilah Benkirane, the Head of Government, also stated earlier this year that Morocco must choose English as its primary language of education “because it is the language of today’s science, technology, and commerce.”However, the necessary steps have not yet been taken and the primary language today in higher institutions remains French.In June, Morocco’s think tank, the Rabat Center for Political and Strategic Studies submitted a report to the Supreme Council for Education, Training and Scientific Research, demanding the adoption of English as Morocco’s first foreign language instead of French.Meanwhile, the Supreme Council’s administration did not take the necessary steps, and is currently still moving to keep French as a second official language. read more

Afrique lévolution humaine pourrait avoir été influencée par le rapide changement climatique

first_imgAfrique : l’évolution humaine pourrait avoir été influencée par le rapide changement climatiqueLe changement climatique rapide en Afrique il y a deux millions d’années pourrait avoir obliger l’Homme à évoluer pour survivre, selon une nouvelle étude.Il y a deux millions d’années, le changement climatique particulièrement rapide en Afrique aurait conduit l’espèce humaine à évoluer. Pour en arriver à une telle conclusion, des chercheurs de l’Université de l’État de Pennsylvanie ont étudié les sédiments lacustres dans les  gorges d’Olduvai en Tanzanie du Nord afin de retracer le type de végétation présent à cette époque sur des intervalles de temps très précis. Leur résultats, publiés dans la revue Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences révèlent six transitions en 200.000 ans entre des paysages types forêts et des paysages type plaines. À lire aussiEn donnant de l’ecstasy à des pieuvres, des scientifiques découvrent un lien évolutif avec l’Homme
”Ces changements ont eu lieu très brusquement, chaque transition se produisant sur des période variant à de centaines à quelques milliers d’années” explique Clayton Magill, dans l’étude. Ces nouvelles hypothèses viennent s’opposer aux théories précédentes selon lesquels les changements évolutifs au sein de l’espèce humaine se sont fait progressivement. “Nos données montrent que l’évolution du continent africain vers un climat sec ne s’est pas faite de manière longue et progressive. Au contraire l’environnement était très variable” souligne Katherine Freeman, membre de l’équipe de recherche. 
”Les premiers humains ont dû passer des arbres aux graminées en seulement 10 à 100 générations, et leur régime alimentaire s’est adapté” poursuit la scientifique. Selon l’étude, les résultat d’une telle transition peut être : “l’augmentation de la taille du cerveau et de la cognition, des changements dans la locomotion et même au niveau social, dans la façon d’interagir”. 
Katherine Freeman conclut : “Nous montrons que l’environnement a changé radicalement au cours d’une courte période, et cette variabilité coïncide avec une période importante de l’évolution humaine lorsque le genre Homo a d’abord été mis en place et quand il y a eu la première preuve de l’utilisation d’outil”.Le 27 décembre 2012 à 14:43 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Rui Patricio thrilled by Wolvehamptons Portugal colony

first_imgWolverhampton Wanderers first-choice goalkeeper Rui Patricio believes his fellow teammates can do better although they’ve presented some impressive displays in the Premier League already.The 30-year-old keeper emerged as one of the most reliable shot-stoppers in Premier League, having conceded only six goals after the opening seven fixtures.The former Sporting Lisbon man was one of the key figures when Wolves hold on Manchester City to a 1-1 draw, as he pulled off a few stunning saves.However, Patricio thinks his side can improve over the course of the season, as they get more comfortable playing in the English top flight, according to the English portal Express & Star.“What we’ve done up until now, for me without a doubt it’s the best football in the world and without a doubt, it’s an amazing experience for any player,” he explained.“We’re also in a team with a few Portuguese players which makes settling in easier.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“Our coach is Portuguese, so what’s happening now are the fruits of his labor. The structure that he’s created around us is very important.“For me and Joao (Moutinho), for both of us it’s a great experience not just evolving the football side but the psychological side working that.“Nuno has people in his team who specialize in (man management), but he used to be a player, so he knows when he needs to speak to a player.“He knows how to manage and our team feels good. As players, we feel good. He knows when he needs to support us, or tell us off.”Patricio is one of eight Portuguese players to perform under Nuno Espirito Santo at the Molineux Stadium alongside the likes of Ivan Cavaleiro, Ruben Neves, Helder Costa, Joao Moutinho, Pedro Goncalves, Diogo Jota, and Ruben Vinagre.last_img read more

What To Know When Shopping For A Printer

first_imgPublishers are no longer simply magazine creator-they’re multimedia brand builders. Printers, meanwhile, are no longer just ink-on-paper product manufacturers-they’re also content distribution platform providers. And no one is sure these days where one function ends and the other begins.And make no mistake, printing contracts are changing. Distribution costs-not just printing or paper costs-are now the critical expenses publishers must deal with when they negotiate with printers, says Steven Frye, president of Frye Publication Consulting. That’s because digital technology has made it easy for printers to create a perfect printed product. But distributing magazine content to multiple platforms, both conventional and electronic, is now far more complicated.”There’s a love-hate relationship between publishers and printers and the new electronic reading devices now,” says Frye. “Publishers and printers are trying to survive together with technology that’s new to both of them.”So what do you do if you’re about to negotiate your first printing contract? Frye and other production experts shared their tips. • Gather specifications. How many titles do you own, how many issues do you produce per year, how many pages do they run, what format are they in, how much turnaround time will you allow your printer from production to distribution? These are basic but critical questions.• Pay attention to paper costs. In the old days, production directors were in touch with paper suppliers on a regular basis, so everyone knew the price of paper. Today, publishers often buy paper from printers. That means publishers don’t have a clear sense of how much paper actually costs and can sometimes fall victim to price inflation by printers. One way to handle that problem is to ask your printer to tie the paper price you’ll pay to an industry index such as one provided by RISI, says Keith Hammerbeck, corporate director of media operations for Advanstar.• Paper storage prices. If you buy paper from your printer, you should not pay storage prices. If you supply your own paper, you must negotiate storage prices upfront, Hammerbeck says. He adds that printers shouldn’t charge publishers to store paper as long as the supply is two months or less.• Overrun allowances. This is a line item that can slip through easily, and you won’t notice you’re overpaying. But Hammerbeck says you can push printers for a very small overrun allowance; if you bargain hard, you can negotiate with a printer to charge you nothing, a tactic that forces the printer to manage spoilage and remain efficient.• Postage. This is another biggy, often a much larger expense than paper. If you use co-mailing, the process by which your printer combines the mailing of your magazine with that of other titles, you should make sure your printer guarantees you a certain level of postal savings-say, 10-20 percent, says Hammerbeck.• Digital add-ons. Frye says publishers need to be very careful about the kinds of digital services they are willing to buy or use, because they are also services they may have to give up. Printers are offering advertising, marketing, design, circulation and planning tools, as well as development of web sites, e-magazines and apps. Leaving a printer may now affect departments that before would never have been affected.One example is P.I.C.A., a free proprietary tool offered by Publishers Press. This service allows publishers to map the issue, choose impositions, select paper, create cost estimates and more. The problem? If you leave the printer you leave the service.Other printers provide great postal services-and if you leave that printer, you lose premium postal management. If possible, Frye urges publishers to negotiate digital services separately from printing contracts because publishers should try to have the right to keep them even if they switch printers.• Payment terms, pricing formats, length of contract. Push printers for a longer payment timeline. Don’t hesitate to ask them to describe their pricing in the format you determine, so that you can compare one printer to another based on the same pricing format. And push hard to keep your printing contract to the fewest years possible. Printers want to extend contracts to 5-7 years but the printing world is changing every day. Getting locked into a long contract could mean higher costs and lagging technology.”Tell every printer that you are going to do the best job you can to make every printer win your printing contract,” says Hammerbeck. “Make it easy to gain their business.” But, he adds, be vigilant.last_img read more

COPY LINKAD Loading … Smoke-breathing elephant stumps scientists iQ released their new product iQ ONE on March 7 in the US Market.Many people take a fancy to iQ ONE at first glance. First of all, its design is quite impressive. Among the four colours – charcoal, tangerine, fuchsia mix and white splat, the former two colours are leather finishes, making you feel soft and comfortable holding at hand. These two may suit well the businessmen and engineers.While the latter two covered by IML finishes deliver a message of high fashion to the customers. Artists and Musicians tend to love this sleek and cool design. Secondly, this device can use both freebased nicotine and salt nicotine e-liquid, which makes lazy people enjoy these two kinds of juices by taking only one device. I think this is essential for me – really convenient! iQ One comes in four flavours–charcoal, tangerine, fuchsia mix and white splat.iQ Press KitThirdly let’s come to the flavour part. There are two kinds of coils, one is 0.6 ohm for free base, and the other is 0.8 ohm for nic salt. Although there are SMOK Nord and Aspire Breeze 2 in the market already, iQ ONE’s flavour is better – every draw is the original taste of the juice flavour. I used blueberry juice for free base and menthol juice for nic salt for they are my favourite flavours. Nic salt is not so harsh, but still, give you the satisfaction of throat hit. No leakage or burning issue come out during my test. Furthermore, the vapour production is not bad, not so outstanding though. I had a smooth drawing experience when using this device and with the adjustable air flow ring, I can adjust the airflow to what I want. Finally, it has a big battery capacity, 1100mAh, allowing the long-last using. Imagine you take this little device for hiking, driving or travelling, it can last for the whole day.iQ is a brand aiming at turning more and more people from smoking to vaping, which reported by many media is a reduced risk alternative to smoking. iQ One is turning out to be the best alternative to the cigarettes.iQ Press KitPeople take a traditional cigarette to release their bad mood or pressure.

YouTube to Make New Originals Available for Free AdSupported Viewing With Single

first_imgYouTube has concluded that its investments in original programming should have a home on the free, ad-supported side — not just tucked behind a paywall.In a shift in strategy, the Google-owned video platform said that starting next year it will move to make all of its new original programming available for free for anyone to watch. With the change, YouTube is moving toward more mainstream celebrity-driven and creator-based reality fare, while it will continue to greenlight scripted productions.Until now, YouTube Originals have mainly been available on its YouTube Premium subscription service, although YouTube also has expanded the shows and movies it makes available on an ad-supported basis.“As we look to 2019, we will continue to invest in scripted programming and shift to make our YouTube Originals ad supported to meet the growing demand of a more global fanbase,” a YouTube rep said in a statement. “This next phase of our originals strategy will expand the audience of our YouTube Original creators, and provide advertisers with incredible content that reaches the YouTube generation.” The company calls the new YouTube Originals strategy its “Single Slate,” which will combine ad-supported and subscription VOD programming initiatives. By 2020, YouTube’s original shows and movies will be available in free windows for all YouTube users. In the near term, some original productions will remain behind the paywall, including next year’s season 2 of “Cobra Kai,” an offshoot of the “Karate Kid” movies.The move will make YouTube Originals available to the platform’s nearly 2 billion users worldwide. That, according to YouTube, will give YouTube creators and other talent the opportunity to reach an even wider audience.YouTube’s originals team will continue to be headed by Susanne Daniels, global head of original content, who joined YouTube in 2015 from MTV.YouTube Originals have included bigger-budget shows like sci-fi thriller series “Origin” from the U.K.’s Left Bank Pictures, the production company behind Netflix’s “The Crown,” and “Step Up: High Water,” based on the movie franchise of the same name. On Jan. 16, 2019, YouTube Premium is set to premiere 10-episode action-comedy “Wayne,” created by Shawn Simmons and executive produced by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (writers on “Deadpool” movies).The lineup of YouTube Originals has been a key value proposition of YouTube Premium, priced at $11.99 per month, which also offers ad-free and offline viewing. This year, according to the video platform, YouTube expanded the YouTube Premium service — initially launched in the U.S. as YouTube Red — to 29 countries and premiered more than 50 shows.Moving forward, YouTube Premium will include early access to original, exclusive content as a reason to pay for the service. YouTube has faced stiff competition in trying to lure paying customers with original content against the likes of Netflix, Hulu and Amazon, which spend far more on content. According to YouTube, the strategy of putting originals featuring homegrown YouTube stars on the subscription VOD service worked: That programming drove fans to sign up for the service and giving creators a new canvas for longer-form projects. The original shows have included sitcom “Foursome,” starring YouTuber Jenn “jennxpenn” McAllister and actor Cameron Moulène; murder-mystery show “Escape the Night” with Joey Graceffa; and “The Thinning” dystopian films starring Logan Paul and Peyton List.Last year, YouTube expanded its originals slate to include ad-supported programming. That included “Kevin Hart: What the Fit,” produced in collaboration with Lionsgate, in which Hart tries various workout routines, and shows featuring Ellen DeGeneres and YouTube’s the Slow Mo Guys.In September, YouTube worked with Will Smith to live-stream for free “The Jump,” his bungee-jump over the Grand Canyon to raise funds for charity. And on Tuesday, Nov. 27, it launched YouTube Original documentary “The Price of Free,” following Nobel Peace Price recipient Kailash Satyarthi and his team around the world on quests to find missing children, for free viewing on the YouTube channel of Rainn Wilson’s SoulPancake. The movie was produced in association with Participant Media and Concordia Studio.At this summer’s Television Critics Association, YouTube announced renewals for “Impulse,” “Step Up: High Water,” “Mind Field,” “Foursome,” “Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television,” “Kevin Hart: What the Fit” and “Cobra Kai,” which are set to return in 2019.YouTube launched its initial slate of original series and movies in early 2015. In those early days, the lineup included the “Scare PewDiePie” reality-adventure series and Rooster Teeth’s “Lazer Team” sci-fi action-comedy.YouTube hasn’t ever disclosed how many subscribers it has signed up for the premium subscription service. It also offers YouTube Music Premium, an ad-free, music-only service, for $9.99 monthly, as well as YouTube TV, a bundle of live TV channels and on-demand programming, for $40 per month.

5 States Headed for Correction

first_img5 States Headed for Correction Home prices are rising and inventory is low—sound familiar? That fact has been talked about nearly to death, but it’s for good reason. Though it means that housing confidence is up and on a positive trajectory, it also means for certain areas that we could be headed for a correction.Eight in 10 American’s, or 79 percent, say that homeownership is still a part of the American Dream, which is why ValueInsured has ranked the Housing Confidence Index score at 68.7 on a hundred-point scale. However, the expectation that homes will continue on their value path has decreased significantly.According to ValueInsured, 57 percent of the American homeowners that were surveyed think their area is overvalued and home prices are unsustainable. Since last quarter, that is a 7 percent increase. Homeowners in Urban areas are particularly concerned with 65 percent believing that homes are overvalued and unsustainable.“We see more homebuyers concerned with timing the market,” said Joe Melendez, CEO of ValueInsured. “This is especially true for millennials, who are more likely to switch jobs, relocate or need to upsize in the next few years. No one wants to buy at the peak and find themselves underwater as so many did a decade ago.”Overall, 62 percent of those surveyed think there will be another housing bubble, but there are five states that could especially be on the road to correction. Seventy-one percent of those surveyed think Washington is the number one place headed for correction followed by New York (68 percent), Florida (63 percent), California (59 percent), and Texas (58 percent).“Beyond the jitters, I see in our survey an increasingly informed nation of homebuyers, who understand the risk of the market,” said Melendez. “To those concerned about a price correction, or waiting to time the market, I recommend a proactive approach.

Animal Party calls for reform of hunting dog law

first_imgBy Evie AndreouThe majority of abandoned and stray dogs in Cyprus are hunting breeds, the Animal Party has said, saying the laws and regulations concerning the obligations of their owners are a mess.In a report submitted to the agriculture minister to mark the World Animal Day last week, the party said 90 per cent of abandoned and stray dogs are breeds used for hunting.At the moment, the party said, no one knows exactly what the obligations of the dog owners are.An amendment to a law in force since 2002 has been pending since 2012, the party’s leader, Kyriacos Kyriacos told the Sunday Mail. It has been stalled over the inability of the ministries of agriculture and interior to coordinate as the ministries in charge of the state veterinary services and local authorities respectively.The amendment procedure has been frozen since until the two ministries decide between them which authority will be in charge of implementation.The bill was approved by the cabinet in September 2014 and was sent for discussion to the House environment committee, but after many changes was sent back for vetting in January 2016. The state legal services then sent it back to the House committee which deemed that it was so heavily edited cabinet had to reapprove it.Part of the law in question concerning hunting dogs, the party said, has been transferred by the Game and Fauna service to the law on the protection and management of wild fauna and game.“While the service will now be responsible for the possession and use of hunting dogs, at the same time, we do not see the corresponding controls for dogs accompanying hunters during hunting,” it said in the report.As the majority of strays are hunting dog breeds, the party said, “checks will finally have to be made whether hunters have the relevant permissions to have dogs, whether the dogs are tagged and many more.”Other problems, the party report said, are dog poisonings and illegal breeding with hunters selling puppies and disposing of those dogs they do not consider to be suitable for hunting.Other problems are the thefts of hunting dogs and their transfer to the north.It also said that the transport ministry ought to amend the law to stop the transfer of hunting dogs in metal cages or boxes placed at the back of trucks or hauled on trailers attached to the vehicles.The Animal Party has pointed out in the past that the numbers of abandoned and stray dogs soar during or straight after the first day of the hunting season, as a large number of these dogs are too young and untrained to deal with the demands that are placed on them by the hunters:“Some of these dogs sit in the owners’ backyard or garage for over six months before the hunting season, with no training whatsoever. Therefore, when they are released in the wild to engage in hunting, some of them run away as their inexperience makes them scared of the gunshots,” Kyriacou said. “The hunters then cannot be bothered to spend the time to find them and so they get lost.”You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementIf Your Indoor Cat Vomits (Do This Every Day)Ultimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)UndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
