Moroccan MP Sentenced to 5 Years for Misappropriation of Public Money

Rabat – An MP from the Istiqlal Party has been sentenced to five years in prison for misappropriation of public money and abuse of power.The Istiqlal Party MP, Abdellatif Abdouh, was sentenced by the Criminal Division of the Marrakech Court of Appeal on Thursday February 19th, to five years in prison and to pay a fine of 50,000 MAD in addition to the seizure of some of his properties.Abdellatif Abdouh was found guilty of corruption charges and the embezzlement of public funds. The former President of the Menara Gueliz municipality of Marrakech was also accused of the falsification of official documents and forgery. The case dates back to 2001 when the Menara Gueliz municipality sold municipal lands to Essadi Hotel for 1026 dirhams/m2 while the latter were reportedly worth 8000 Dirhams/m2.Seven city council members and a contractor involved in the case have received sentences ranging from 2 to 5 years in prison. read more

Morocco’s Benchaaboun Promises Tax Reform to EU Commissioner Moscovici

Rabat – Morocco’s Minister of Economy and Finance Mohamed Benchaaboun, and the EU commissioner for economic and financial affairs, taxation and customs, Pierre Moscovici, discussed Morocco’s efforts to promote good tax governance on Thursday, March 21, in Brussels.Benchaaboun said in a statement that, in addition to taxation, they discussed other topics of common interest. Benchaaboun added that the EU Council has taken note of “a positive evolution in Morocco’s commitment to respect the rules of good governance as they are generally practiced for all developed countries.” He asserted that Morocco will adopt a framework law this year on the “principles of taxation and good tax governance.”Moscovici welcomed Morocco’s fiscal efforts. “Morocco has done the right thing by modifying tax regimes that could be harmful [to] good tax governance,” he said.In 2018, the EU added Morocco to its tax haven “grey list” of countries given time to reform their fiscal policies. In March 2019, the union did not move Morocco to its “black list” of tax havens, but gave it until the end of 2019 to enact reforms, citing the progress Morocco achieved in 2018.As with other countries on the grey list, Morocco has one to two years to reform tax policies.After his meeting with Benchaaboun, Moscovici wrote a tweet praising “the fruitful cooperation with Morocco on good tax governance. Confident that the commitments made will be maintained!”The meeting also highlighted the prospects for economic cooperation between the EU and Morocco.“We have planned missions in the coming weeks to establish the principles of a much closer collaboration than in the past,” said Benchaaboun.Moscovici said he will soon be going to Rabat “to strengthen our economic cooperation.” He welcomed the “positive results,” citing in particular the EU-Morocco fisheries and agricultural agreements that will come into force “very soon.”In January, the EU Parliament passed the Moscovici-proposed amendment to the EU-Morocco agriculture agreement that includes Western Sahara. Pro-Polisario groups opposed the deal, saying that Morocco “exploits the natural resources” of Western Sahara.However, a group of Sahrawis urged the EU to adopt the agreement, citing benefits for the development of the region.In 2018, according to the EU Commission, Morocco’s trade with the EU was €39 billion. Morocco maintained a 1.2 percent share of EU international trade. The EU imports from Morocco were worth €16 billion and exports €23 billion. read more

Somalia Security Council welcomes progress in peace process

In a statement read out by the current Council President, Ambassador Alfonso Valdivieso of Colombia, the 15-nation body indicated its firm support for the “unified approach of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) to national reconciliation in Somalia.”The Council specifically lauded the Declaration on Cessation of Hostilities and the Structures and Principles of the Somalia National Reconciliation Process signed in Eldoret, Kenya, in late October. It also called on all parties to cease all acts of violence, specifically against humanitarian personnel, and to respect the Eldoret Agreement.The statement also welcomed the Joint Declaration issued by all involved parties on 2 December in Mogadishu stating their commitment to bring to an end all killings and abductions of innocent people and hijacking of public transportation in the city, and noted with satisfaction the start of the second phase of the Somalia National Reconciliation Process that same day in Eldoret.The Council expressed “serious concern,” however, over the situation of internally displaced persons in Somalia, and called on all armed factions to allow humanitarian personnel immediate and unfettered access to these populations at risk. read more

Ireland survive firsthalf scare in Rome to notch bonuspoint win over Italy

first_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Subscribe By Murray Kinsella Sunday 24 Feb 2019, 4:51 PM Italy 16Ireland 26Murray Kinsella reports from Stadio Olimpico, RomeJOHNNY SEXTON KICKING out in frustration as he left the pitch in the 78th minute after being replaced by debutant Jack Carty said it all.A deeply frustrating afternoon for Ireland in Rome.In the end, Joe Schmidt’s men emerged with the bonus-point win that had been widely predicted but this was not a happy outing. Ireland celebrate Keith Earls’ try in the second half. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOA sluggish, error-strewn performance from Ireland left them trailing Conor O’Shea’s Italy 16-12 at the half-time break and though they got over the line for a fourth try through scrum-half Conor Murray, there is mountains of work to do.Schmidt made four changes to his starting team here and Ireland looked rather rudderless without regular captain Rory Best, as hooker Sean Cronin endured a tough day at the lineout and was called ashore early in the second half.Murray and his halfback partner, Johnny Sexton, once again struggled to get up to the controlling quality they showed themselves capable of in 2018. Others around them had similar issues as Ireland continually made handling errors and turned the ball over.The Italians, for their part, were more impressive and competitive than on any occasion since their 2015 World Cup clash with Ireland, deservedly scoring two tries and missing opportunities to do further damage to the visitors.Ireland’s bonus-point victory leaves them three match points behind Six Nations leaders Wales and still with some hope of winning a championship, although it will take something special over the closing two rounds for Ireland to claim an unlikely title.Despite the positive elements in this performance, Italy have now lost 20 championship games in a row, the most recent 13 of those under O’Shea, and they missed the chance to grab a first-ever losing bonus in the O’Shea era when replacement Ian McKinley’s late penalty dropped short and wide. Lock Quinn Roux, left wing Jacob Stockdale and Keith Earls – who played almost 70 minutes at outside centre after a head injury for Bundee Aki forced a reshuffle – were the other Irish try-scorers, but Schmidt has plenty of ammunition for a tough video review.  Quinn Roux burst over for a try in the first half. Source: James Crombie/INPHOIreland were in the unfamiliar position of trailing the Italians at the break, and deservedly so after an extremely poor opening 40 minutes that was rife with handling errors, loose passing, lineout failings and a total lack of the cohesion they had aimed for.Their opening four attacks failed due to the aforementioned shortcomings before they put together an impressive 19-phase passage that ended with Roux crossing to score.Aki and Dave Kilcoyne carried well in the build-up as Ireland played off Sexton, while Tadhg Furlong’s offload to Roux was followed by an excellent running line by the impressive Chris Farrell to put Ireland within striking distance, Ultan Dillane and Kilcoyne latching onto Roux to help him over for a try converted by Sexton.At the second time of asking, Italy out-half Tommaso Allan slotted a penalty – Sean O’Brien failing to release from the tackle before attempting a breakdown steal – to bring the Italians onto the scoreboard with a quarter played.But from the restart, lock Dean Budd misjudged the flight of Sexton’s kick and Michele Campagnaro spilled the ball in attempting to gather, allowing Stockdale to scoop it up 35 metres out and accelerate home for his 14th try in 17 caps.Sexton couldn’t convert and now the Italians truly came alive, Allan reducing the deficit off the tee with a second penalty, just after it had been confirmed that Aki had failed his HIA and Earls shifted permanently into outside centre, while Andrew Conway came onto the wing. Jacob Stockdale scored his 14th try in 17 Tests. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOThere was more sloppy play from Ireland before lively Italy scrum-half Tito Tebaldi broke on a quick-tap penalty and chipped ahead only to collide with Rob Kearney, who couldn’t exactly disappear. Ireland had been warned but they failed to respond.Instead, Cronin overthrew a lineout for the second time and Italy thundered at their visitors, fullback Jayden Hayward breaking inside Earls and going past the covering Kearney too easily.He was hauled down metres short on the left, but after a carry in midfield, Allan calmly floated a skip pass wide right to the unmarked Edoardo Padovani to score. He could have made the conversion easier for Allan, who missed off the tee again.And there was time for the Italians to take the lead just before the break as Tebaldi picked Murray’s pocket with Ireland attacking inside the home team’s 22, snaffling the ball from his opposite number’s hands to spark the counter.Tebaldi ignored Padovani on his right to grubber deep into the Ireland 22, where Kearney couldn’t gather under pressure and Conway just managed to halt Allan.Italy were calm again, with Tebaldi and Hayward swinging long passes out the left, where Maxime Mbanda ignored Luca Morisi in space and was hauled down. Morisi, however, wasn’t going to be denied as he picked and drove through Farrell to score. Luca Morisi scores for Italy. Source: Billy Stickland/INPHOAllan couldn’t convert but Italy led 16-12 at the interval.Ireland’s second-half start didn’t give the travelling support too much confidence as Sexton’s restart failed to go 10 metres and then fullback Kearney knocked-on in an aerial contest.But captain Peter O’Mahony – who was man of the match – won a crucial turnover penalty in the Ireland 22 and, with Cronin replaced by Niall Scannell, Ireland built a strong attack from a lineout maul, Stockdale breaking on the fringe of it and Schmidt’s men winning a penalty under the posts.Murray tapped it to keep the tempo up and after strong carrying from the likes of O’Brien and Furlong, Earls switched to the left of a close-range ruck and danced inside Budd and Tebaldi, beating the diving tackle of replacement Alessandro Zanni to dot down Ireland’s third.Murray took over the kicking duties to convert and send Ireland into a 19-16 lead, but Italy continued to pose danger as Padovani broke down the right and into the Irish 22, only for a wild Tebaldi pass to be knocked-on by Zanni.Ireland continued to make their own errors, however, with Murray losing the ball forward off the back of a maul in the Italy 22 and Conway spilling it in the air soon after.Earls produced a searing linebreak off a deft Farrell pass heading into the final quarter but he was hauled down 10 metres out and Stockdale couldn’t hold the Munster man’s offload.  Conor Murray grabbed Ireland’s fourth try. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOBut Italy couldn’t take their invites back into the game and Ireland secured the bonus point in the 67th minute as – just after Dillane atoned for a knock-on with a strip in the tackle – Schmidt’s men kicked into the left corner.It took a second bite after Italy stole the first lineout but the Irish maul rumbled forward and Murray finished smartly, converting his own score.Italy scorers: Tries: Edoardo Padovani, Luca MorisiConversions: Tommaso Allan [0 from 2]Penalties: Tommaso Allan [2 from 3], Ian McKinley [0 from 1]Ireland scorers:Tries: Quinn Roux, Jacob Stockdale, Keith Earls, Conor MurrayConversions: Johnny Sexton [1 from 2], Conor Murray [2 from 2]ITALY: Jayden Hayward; Edoardo Padovani, Michele Campagnaro (Tommaso Castello ’73), Luca Morisi, Angelo Esposito; Tommaso Allan (Ian McKinley ’74), Tito Tebaldi; Andrea Lovotti (Cherif Traoré ’61), Leonardo Ghiraldini (captain), Simone Ferrari (Tiziano Pasquali ’52); Federico Ruzza, Dean Budd; Jimmy Tuivaiti (David Sisi ’52), Maxime Mbandà (Alessandro Zanni ’43), Braam Steyn.Replacements: Luca Bigi, Guglielmo Palazzani.IRELAND: Rob Kearney; Keith Earls, Chris Farrell, Bundee Aki (Andrew Conway ’13), Jacob Stockdale; Johnny Sexton (Jack Carty ’78), Conor Murray (John Cooney ’71); Dave Kilcoyne (Jack McGrath ’63), Sean Cronin (Niall Scannell ’48 – reversal ’74), Tadhg Furlong (John Ryan ’63); Ultan Dillane (HIA – Iain Henderson ’32 to ’39), Quinn Roux (Iain Henderson ’58); Peter O’Mahony (captain), Sean O’Brien (Josh van der Flier ’58), Jordi Murphy.Referee: Glen Jackson [New Zealand].Subscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: https://the42.ie/4510385 Ireland survive first-half scare in Rome to notch bonus-point win over Italy Joe Schmidt’s men still remain some way off their best despite the victory at Stadio Olimpico.center_img Share22 Tweet Email2 28,558 Views Feb 24th 2019, 4:51 PM Short URL 128 Comments last_img read more

Plug pulled on community TV

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The federal government has announced that it is effectively ‘switching off’ community television stations, suggesting to broadcasters that if they wish to continue with their programming they will have to do so via the internet.Minister for Communications Malcolm Turnbull said that stations will only be licensed until the end of 2015.The announcement will affect community broadcasters C31 in Melbourne and Geelong, 31 in Brisbane, TVS in Sydney, 44 in Adelaide and WTV in Perth.That means for people fond of community programming, like Vasili’s Garden to Kitchen, which has been welcomed by a lot of yiayiathes and pappouthes over the years, will now miss out, or if the programmers choose to, can continue watching their favourite programs on the internet. Australian Community Television Alliance secretary, and general manager of C31, Richard McLelland, said that the decision is the “death knell of community television in Australia”.McLelland was frustrated by the government’s decision.“He [Turnbull] seems to have a view that community television is not worth having in this country,” he said. But Mr Turnbull said that community television will be better served online.“The government believes that the best outcome for community television is that, in the future, it uses the internet as its distribution platform,” he said. “It will deliver wider audiences at less cost on a wider range of devices.”Community television has produced a number of household names, with the likes of Corinne Grant, Rove McManus, and Hamish and Andy starting out on the platform.Source: ABC Newslast_img read more

Local reaction to liquor rule change mixed

first_imgTestimony was mixed on Tuesday during a Washington State Liquor Control Board hearing about whether businesses should be allowed to sell alcohol after 2 a.m., an idea the board is considering at the request of the city of Seattle.Several speakers at the Vancouver City Hall hearing said they were concerned about increased drunk driving, and said that more impaired drivers on the road could stretch rural police forces too thin. But some supported the rule change, saying it would boost local economies and that each city should get to choose whether to extend te 2 a.m. cutoff. About 30 people showed up to the hearing and seven people testified to the board.State law bans the selling of alcohol between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m., but the liquor control board is considering a Seattle petition that would allow individual cities to extend the hours that some businesses, such as bars and nightclubs, are allowed to serve alcohol. Seattle officials have discussed the possibility of allowing people to purchase alcohol 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in their city. Any city could ask the Liquor Control Board for an exemption from the 2 a.m. sales cutoff.Insufficient staffingIf the rule changed and Vancouver requested such an exemption, people from communities outside of Vancouver could drive into the city, drink into the early morning hours and then drive back home, Battle Ground Police Chief Bob Richardson said during his public testimony. Richardson said his department is not staffed to handle more drunken drivers on the roads past the current bar closing time.Likewise, he said many other cities across the state would have the same problem. “Most of the (police) agencies in the state are small,” Richardson said.last_img read more

Selfassembling solar panels a step closer

Image: Heiko O. Jacobs. (PhysOrg.com) — Scientists Robert J. Knuesel and Heiko O. Jacobs of the University of Minnesota have developed a way to make tiny solar cells self-assemble. New nanoassembly technique is created Citation: Self-assembling solar panels a step closer (2010, January 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-01-self-assembling-solar-panels-closer.html More information: Self-assembly of microscopic chiplets at a liquid-liquid-solid interface forming a flexible segmented monocrystalline solar cell, Robert J.

The researchers think they can adapt their method to smaller components and larger assembled devices, and it could be used to cheaply and quickly assemble all kinds of high-quality electronic components on a wide range of flexible or inflexible substrates including plastics, semiconductors and metals. The assemblages could find uses in numerous applications such as solar cells, video displays and tiny semiconductors. The use of this method in solar cell production would reduce the cost considerably since less silicon is needed, and it should also be possible to assemble solar chiplets into transparent, flexible materials, which would extend their range of uses.The paper is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). The researchers had previously been unsuccessful in their attempts to make self-assembling electronic components. In large systems gravity can be used to drive self-assembly, and in nanoscale systems chemical processes can be used, but between the two scales, in the micrometer range, it is much more difficult.To overcome the difficulties, Kneusel and Jacobs designed a flexible substrate of a thin layer of copper covered with propylene-terephthalate (PET). Regular depressions the same size as the “chiplets” were etched into the PET layer and then the sheet was dipped into a bath of molten solder, which coated the exposed copper in the etched depressions. Each chiplet consisted of a 20-60 µm silicon cube with one gold face. The silicon sides had a coating of hydrophobic (water-repelling) molecules, while the gold side had a hydrophilic (water-attracting) coating.When the elements were placed in a container containing oil and water, they neatly arranged themselves in a sheet at the boundary between the liquids, with the gold side pointed down to the water layer. The substrate was then pulled slowly up through the boundary like a conveyor belt, and the elements neatly dropped in place in the depressions as the solder attracted the gold side. Accuracy was 98%. The assembly was covered with epoxy to keep the chiplets in place, and then a conducting electrode layer was added.The device was able to assemble 62,000 elements, each of them thinner than a human hair, in only three minutes. The elimination of a dependency on gravity and sedimentation meant the chiplets could be reduced to below 100 micrometers in size. It was important to limit the assembly time to avoid oxidation of the surfaces, which would reduce surface energies and interfere with self-assembly. The water layer had to be acidic, at pH 2.0, and the temperature had to be kept at 95C to keep the solder molten.last_img read more

Physicists propose test for loop quantum gravity

first_imgArtist’s illustration of loop quantum gravity. Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — As a quantum theory of gravity, loop quantum gravity could potentially solve one of the biggest problems in physics: reconciling general relativity and quantum mechanics. But like all tentative theories of quantum gravity, loop quantum gravity has never been experimentally tested. Now in a new study, scientists have found that, when black holes evaporate, the radiation they emit could potentially reveal “footprints” of loop quantum gravity, distinct from the usual Hawking radiation that black holes are expected to emit. More information: A. Barrau, et al. “Probing Loop Quantum Gravity with Evaporating Black Holes.” Physical Review Letters 107, 251301 (2011). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.107.251301 Citation: Physicists propose test for loop quantum gravity (2012, January 3) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-01-physicists-loop-quantum-gravity.html Journal information: Physical Review Letterscenter_img In this way, evaporating black holes could enable the first ever experimental test for any theory of quantum gravity. However, the proposed test would not be easy, since scientists have not yet been able to detect any kind of radiation from an evaporating black hole. The scientists, from institutions in France and the US, have published their study called “Probing Loop Quantum Gravity with Evaporating Black Holes” in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters.“For decades, Planck-scale physics has been thought to be untestable,” coauthor Aurélien Barrau of the French National Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics (IN2P3) told PhysOrg.com. “Nowadays, it seems that it might enter the realm of experimental physics! This is very exciting, especially in the appealing framework of loop quantum gravity.”In their study, the scientists have used algorithms to show that primordial black holes are expected to reveal two distinct loop quantum gravity signatures, while larger black holes are expected to reveal one distinct signature. These signatures refer to features in the black hole’s energy spectrum, such as broad peaks at certain energy levels.Using Monte Carlo simulations, the scientists estimated the circumstances under which they could discriminate the predicted signatures of loop quantum gravity and those of the Hawking radiation that black holes are expected to emit with or without loop quantum gravity. They found that a discrimination is possible as long as there are enough black holes or a relatively small error on the energy reconstruction.While the scientists have shown that an analysis of black hole evaporation could possibly serve as a probe for loop quantum gravity, they note that one of the biggest challenges will be simply detecting evaporating black holes. “We should be honest: this detection will be difficult,” Barrau said. “But it is far from being impossible.”He added that black holes are not the only possible probe of loop quantum gravity, and he’s currently investigating whether loop quantum gravity might have signatures in the universe’s background radiation.“I am now working on the cosmological side of loop quantum gravity,” Barrau said. “This is the other way to try to test the theory: some specific footprints in the cosmic microwave background might be detected in the future.” Copyright 2012 PhysOrg.com.

MIPS open sourced under MIPS Open Program makes the semiconductor space and

first_imgOn 17th December, Wave Computing announced that it will put MIPS on open source, with MIPS Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) and MIPS’ latest core R6 to be made available in the first quarter of 2019. With a vision to “accelerate the ability for semiconductor companies, developers and universities to adopt and innovate using MIPS for next-generation system-on-chip (SoC) designs”, Wave computings’ MIPS Open program will give participants full access to the most recent versions of the 32-bit and 64-bit MIPS ISA free of charge, without any licensing or royalty fees. Under this program, participants will have full access to the most recent versions of the 32-bit and 64-bit MIPS ISA free of charge – with no licensing or royalty fees. Additionally, participants in the MIPS Open program will be licensed under MIPS’ existing worldwide patents. Addressing the “lack of open source access to true industry-standard, patent-protected and silicon-proven RISC architectures”, Art Swift, president of Wave Computing’s MIPS IP Business claims that MIPS will bring to the open-source community “commercial-ready” instruction sets with “industrial-strength” architecture, where “Chip designers will have opportunities to design their own cores based on proven and well-tested instruction sets for any purposes.” Lee Flanagin, Wave’s senior vice president and chief business officer further added in the post that the MIPS Open initiative is a key part of Wave’s ‘ AI for All’ vision. He says that “The MIPS-based solutions developed under MIPS Open will complement our existing and future MIPS IP cores that Wave will continue to create and license globally as part of our overall portfolio of systems, solutions and IP. This will ensure current and new MIPS customers will have a broad array of solutions from which to choose for their SoC designs, and will also have access to a vibrant MIPS development community and ecosystem.” The MIPS Open initiative further will encourage the adoption of MIPS while helping customers develop new, MIPS-compatible solutions for a variety of emerging market applications from third-party tool vendors, software developers and universities. RISC-V versus MIPS? Considering that the RISC-V instruction set architecture is also free and open for anyone to use,  the internet went abuzz with speculations about competition between RISC-V and MIPS and the potential future of both. Hacker news also saw comments like: “Had this happened two or three years ago, RISC-V would have never been born.” In an interview to EE Times, Rupert Baines, CEO of UltraSoC, said that “Given RISC-V’s momentum, MIPS going open source is an interesting, shrewd move.”  He observed, “MIPS already has a host of quality tools and software environment. This is a smart way to amplify MIPS’ own advantage, without losing much.” Linley Gwennap, principal analyst at the Linley Group compared the two chips and stated that, “The MIPS ISA is more complete than RISC-V. For example, it includes DSP and SIMD extensions, which are still in committee for RISC-V.”. Calling the MIPS software development tools more mature than RISC-V, he went on to list down the benefits of MIPS over RISC: “MIPS also provides patent protection and a central authority to avoid ISA fragmentation, both of which RISC-V lacks. These factors give MIPS an advantage for commercial implementations, particularly for customer-facing cores.” Hacker News and Twitter are bustling with comments on this move by Wave computing. Opinions are split over which architecture is more preferable to use. For the most part, customers appear excited about this news.

first_imgRelated posts:No free dental checkups for self-employed workers who owe the Caja, Sala IV rules Refusing to hire obese man is not discrimination, Costa Rican court finds Costa Rican health minister: Auto accidents are a public health issue Costa Rica welcomes first IVF baby after 16-year ban The Constitutional Chamber of Costa Rica’s Supreme Court refused to hear a case asking the country’s public health care system to pay for a sex reassignment surgery abroad, according to a court press release Monday.The chamber, also known as Sala IV, voted 6-1 on June 12 not to hear a transgender woman’s case asking the Costa Rican Social Security System, or Caja, to pay for her sex reassignment surgery in another country since the operation is not available here.The plaintiff verbally requested surgery at Hospital San Juan de Dios in 2014 as part of her transition into a woman. After making several requests for more information about the surgery, the plaintiff was told that the hospital did not have the policies or staff to perform the operation. The daily La Nación reported that the Caja had formed an interdisciplinary commission to discuss the case and the lack of policy on the matter. With no alternative in Costa Rica, the plaintiff asked the Caja to pay for the surgery in another country.But the plaintiff’s petition did not include a statement from a doctor or medical review board that said the sexual reassignment surgery was medically necessary. Without a medical opinion in her favor, the hospital refused to pay for the surgery and the Sala IV agreed.Judges Armijo, Cruz, Castillo, Abdelnour, Salas, and Estrada voted in the majority not to hear the case. Judge Jinesta cast the one dissenting vote. Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Costa Rica wins first World Cup qualifier over Haiti 10

first_imgThe journey for a World Cup bid begins in the right direction for Costa Rica football, which beat Haiti 1-0 Friday night in the opening qualifying game at National Stadium in San José.“La Sele” played its most complete game under Óscar Ramírez, who is now 3-2 as head coach, dominating the CONCACAF rival from the start. Haiti had little space to work with on offense and struggled to win possession away from Costa Rica, which was constantly forcing the ball downfield.In the 28th minute, Cristian Gamboa scored off a rebound when Haiti’s goalkeeper Johnny Placide deflected a shot from Johan Venegas back into the box. The goal seemed inevitable after Costa Rica set up camp in Haitian territory during the opening minutes.With the win, La Sele earns three points in Group B of the CONCACAF World Cup qualifying tournament, and is currently tied for the group lead with its next opponent, Panama.The Ticos never missed a beat against Haiti, even without their best player, goalkeeper Keylor Navas. Navas’ replacement, Patrick Pemberton, was almost never challenged until the closing minutes of the first half. When Haiti began threatening, the 33-year-old answered with a pair of clutch saves, including a diving deflection of a near-goal while Costa Rica was down to 10 men with midfielder Celso Borges nursing a foot injury on the sidelines.Borges, one of Costa Rica’s most important pieces in its quest for a World Cup berth, was carted off the field before halftime, reportedly in tears on his way to the hospital. Spanish-language media said after the game that Borges suffered a fracture in his foot. If that’s the case, it means Borges will almost certainly miss Costa Rica’s game against Panama, leaving La Sele without its best midfielder against one of the better teams in the region.Though Costa Rica passed its first test with relative ease, a win over a low-tier CONCACAF team doesn’t mean La Sele is suddenly a lock to make the field of 32 in Russia. On numerous opportunities in the first half, La Sele attackers looked timid and panicked when given open field, fumbling the ball away instead of making quick decisions. Ramírez gestured to his players to calm down after one especially egregious turnover where a promising breakaway collapsed after a poor pass from Ronald Matarrita.“We weren’t as fluid as I would have liked to be during the game,” Ramírez said at a news conference after the game. “We had some chances to go up 2-0 but Haiti didn’t give too many opportunities.”Panama, which beat Jamaica 2-0 Friday in the other Group B World Cup qualifier for CONCACAF, presents a far tougher challenge for La Sele than the outmanned Haitians. In the last meeting between the two teams – a March 31st friendly in Panama City – the Panamanians beat Costa Rica 2-1, led by a pair of early goals.“It’s always a classic when we play Panama now,” Ramírez said. “They enjoy playing us and we’re looking forward to the challenge.”Costa Rica v. Panama kicks off at 8:30 p.m. local time on Tuesday in the second leg of the World Cup qualifiers.

first_imgSeptember 03 , 2018 You might also be interested in Police uncover huge Italian ‘kiwigate’ scandal … France has placed itself at the forefront of a campaign against chemical blamed for declines in bee populations, over the weekend banning five neonicotinoid pesticides.As from on Saturday 1 September 2018 the use of five neocotinoids – clothianidin, imidacloprid, thiamethoxam, thiacloprid and acetamiprid – is illegal in France.The French ban goes further than a European one – announced in April that comes into effect on Dec. 19 at the latest – which only bans the use of clothianidin, imidacloprid and thiamethoxam in open fields.Heavily agriculture-reliant France banned these three plus thiacloprid and acetamiprid, not only outdoors but in greenhouses too.The move was praised by beekeepers and environmentalists but criticized by farming groups who say there is a lack of sufficient alternatives and believe the ban will cause economic damage. Some French farmers’ groups object to the ban, arguing that it is based on insufficient evidence and will make their crops less competitive with imported produce.The Anses public health agency said in May there were “sufficiently effective, and operational” alternatives to the majority of neonicotinoids, Radio France reported.But farmers’ union FNSEA wants exemptions for maize and beets, saying that there are no sufficiently effective alternative ways to tackle insects that seriously damage the crops.The use of neonicotinoids will continue to be authorized for use in non-agricultural pest control, such as in flea collars for pets or in household fly traps.The ban pitted French Agriculture Minister Stéphane Travert, who lobbied for easing it, against environment minister Nicolas Hulot, who refused to back down but resigned from the government last week, saying he felt isolated.The Canadian Government recently announced plans to phase out thiamethoxam and clothianidin.last_img read more

Where to go on holiday for early summer sun in 2019

first_imgHow to get to Morocco Find hotels in Bodrum Find hotels in Marrakesh Ok, so you may need a jumper on at night as you sip on a local Efes pilsner, but that’s a small price to pay for around 11 hours of glorious sunshine in this eastern Mediterranean getaway. The Bodrum Peninsula has the lot – the busy action of Bodrum itself, a slew of superb beaches, small villages where time seems to stand still and a flurry of day trip options including Ephesus, a beautifully preserved city with bags of Roman and Greek heritage. The best beaches are on the south of the peninsula west of Bodrum. Get even more travel goodness straight to your inbox.Sign up  The Canaries have one of the best early summer climates of any short-haul destination from the UK, with around nine hours of sunshine a day, temperatures tipping 23°C and little chance of rain. The largest and most popular island is Tenerife, and the place to be is are the resorts in the sunny south. However, the beaches are better on nearby Gran Canaria around Maspalomas and on slightly windier Fuerteventura near Corralejo. Another great island for a shoulder-season sun holiday is Lanzarote, but don’t expect picture-postcard golden sands as many of the beaches here are made of black sand. All seven of the main islands have incredible hiking trails and April through to June is one of the best times of the year to tackle local routes, or take on the challenge of scaling Spain’s highest mountain on Tenerife, Mount Teide.
