By Karen Duarte Rabat- Awaiting the kick-off of the Russia 2018 World Cup match, the opening ceremony brought out a short and sweet performance by British pop star Robbie Williams and Russian soprano Aida Garifullina. Standing on a giant half-football in the middle of the Luzhniki Stadium, dressed in a burgundy leopard skin suit and surrounded by dancers in shiny red costumes Robbie Williams welcomed fans and footballers alike. Following a rousing presentation of Let Me Entertain You, Williams was joined by Russian soprano Aida Garifullina, a vision in white for a duet of Robbie’s chart-topping single “Angels.”With 20-minutes till kick off, the opening ceremony ended with Ronaldo (the original, Brazilian version) joining Robbie and Aida.Ronaldo passed the ball to the Russian World Cup mascot Zabivaka, which might have been a symbolic “first kick.”About 80,000 people are expected to be in attendance at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium as the host team Russia faces Saudi Arabia in the first match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Tomorrow Morocco’s kick-off game against Iran will take place in the St. Petersburg Stadium at 3:00 p.m. (Moroccan time). read more

Rabat – Head of Government Saad Eddine El Othmani reportedly dismissed the secretary general of the Ministry of Health, Hicham Najmi, on September 17.The news went viral on Moroccan media this evening. Morocco’s news agency Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) has not confirmed yet the official’s dismissal.Najmi has been at the center of a controversy over the last two months after a woman, who was allegedly with him in a hotel room in Agadir, jumped from a window in an alleged “suicide attempt.” Local media reported earlier this month that the professor is facing charges  for his involvement in the incident. He may be charged with making “false statements,” and not helping a “person in danger.”The now-former secretary general claimed that the accusations against him are “rumors.”He claimed that he was accompanied by his wife when the accident took place. He said that the woman who jumped was in a nearby room at the second floor.Najmi told French speaking news outlet Le360 in August that he went to the room to help, but he found that the girl had fallen after she slipped from the window.The Ministry of Health appointed the official as a Secretary General  in April 2018. read more

While urging the parties to maintain the recent de-escalation in fighting in war-battered Hudaydah that has provided a desperately needed respite to hundreds of thousands of civilians who remain in the Red Sea port city, the two senior UN officials said they were deeply concerned for the safety and protection of civilians and civilian infrastructure.Conflict in Yemen – already one of the poorest countries in the world before the crisis – escalated in March 2015, when an Saudi-led international coalition intervened militarily at the request of the Yemeni presidency, against a widespread Houthi rebel insurgency.“Hostilities over the last several weeks in Hudaydah have taken a steep toll, including on health facilities directly damaged in crossfire or occupied by armed groups,” said Henrietta Fore, UNICEF Executive Director, and Mark Lowcock, the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, in a joint statement.They were especially worried about Al Thawrah Hospital, which is the only facility in the city equipped to provide a full range of secondary and tertiary care, and therefore critical for millions of people in Hudaydah Governorate. More than 81,000 children were treated at the hospital in 2017, while over 45,000 have received treatment there so far this year. The hospital’s services include a malnutrition treatment facility, two intensive care units that are providing intensive emergency care including for newborn babies, and a cholera treatment centre that has treated 1,615 patients since August 2018.“Since the lull in hostilities, Al Thawrah hospital has remained functional and accessible. However, front lines remain very close by, meaning any resumption of hostilities could quickly render the facility unusable,” said the officials.They noted that Al Thawrah had been damaged several times during fighting before the lull. And while other hospitals continue to operate in Hudaydah, none offer the level of care and services provided by Al Thawrah. Its continued operation is vital for the city and its surroundings.“We remind all parties to the conflict of their obligation to abide by the fundamental rules of distinction and proportionality and to take constant care – at all times – to spare civilians and civilian infrastructure, including Al Thawrah Hospital and all other health facilities,” they said.Ms. Fore and Mr. Lowcock called on the parties not to occupy or otherwise use civilian sites – including Al Thawrah – for military purposes, and stressed that the conflict parties should also guarantee that patients, their family members and medical staff have safe passage to and from the hospital at all times.They stressed: “A durable cessation of hostilities – part of a package of five measures – would be a welcome first step. Full implementation of all five measures – a cessation of hostilities, protection of the supply of food and essential goods, support for the economy, increased funding for the response, and engagement by the parties with the Special Envoy [for Yemen] to end the conflict – is essential to prevent potential catastrophe.” read more

first_img“Consistently achieving well beyond production and safety targets over the last 11 years” at Impala Platinum’s open pit mine near Rustenburg has led to Concor Opencast Mining renewing the contract for another year, according to the company. George Killian, Concor’s Site Manager at the mine comments: “The annualtargets are set jointly by Impala Platinum and Concor Opencast Mining. The scope of work comprises extraction from a narrow reef dipping at approximately9° to a depth of between 30 to 35 m, crushing the material to 300 mm and delivery to the stockpile. The mine draws material from the stockpile for transportation to the processing plant where platinum and other minerals are extracted.”Concor Opencast Mining’s contract also includes the rehabilitation of the mined areas, of which 26 have been completed to date. “We are following the outcrop reef comprising the Merensky reef and the UG2 reef,” Killian says. “The strike length is 14 km. Up to mid-June this year we had 2.5 million m³ of top soil, 19.6 million m³ of overburden and 921 000 m³ of reef material. The corresponding figures for the Merensky reef are 1.6 million m³ of topsoil, 9.4 million m³ of overburden and 1 million m³ of reef material.”Frank O’Toole, Impala Platinum’s mine manager for the opencast operation, says that Concor Opencast Mining “has met and exceeded our expectations in all areas – safety, production and community relations,” adding “our first priority is safety and we expect quality work. Production targets must be delivered otherwise the operation is uneconomic. In addition, community relations are challenging and we require Concor Opencast Mining to be involved with all affected stakeholders, including farmers. High standards must be maintained in those interactions to foster good relationships. Concor Opencast Mining is doing well in all these areas.”Killian attributes his team’s success to high levels of planning and discipline coupled with a strong adherence to safety standards. Among the challenges faced by the team are geological – presented by potholes, dykes and fractures in the reefs, all of which impact on productivity – and interfacing with communities in the Bafokeng area which are affected by the blasting and mining operations. Turning to safety, Killian states that the open pit operation has worked four and ahalf million hours with no fatalities. Last September, the operation was awarded platinum safety medals by Impala Platinum and received Concor Opencast Mining’sdivisional safety award for achieving zero lost time injuries for a full year. The site’s short term objective is to achieve two years without lost time injuries.“We adhere strictly to the Murray & Roberts “Stop-Think” safety programme,” Killian says. “We start each shift with a safety meeting for management andforemen, and thereafter with operators and the remainder of the workforce. Safety talks are held again at the close of each shift.” Weekly safety audits are carried out by Concor Opencast Mining while Impala undertakes 40 day safety audits. Visible felt leadership (VFL) forms part of the safety environment aimed at influencing and transforming behaviour.” Concor Opencast Mining employs 200 permanent people on site. Opencast mining is plant intensive and 35 machines are in use, ranging from a 70 t excavator to 45 t rigid trucks and 30 t ADTs. Two 9.5 hour shifts are worked five days a week and one shift is worked on Saturdays.last_img read more

Recently, Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund pumped in billions of dollars into their domestic banks in a move to shore up the deposits, the business daily reported.Indian telecom stocks, including Bharti Airtel, have also gained on signs of an end to a bruising price war and hopes that industry consolidation will benefit established players.Earlier in October, Bharti Airtel, reported a 63 percent fall in net profit for the September quarter on year-on-year (YoY) basis.

first_imgWhen the Great Depression hit America, millions of people were forced to rely on their wits to survive. From the end of the “Roaring Twenties” through to the conclusion of the Thirties, the nation was reeling from the impact of the Stock Market Crash. History.com wrote that “By 1933, when the Great Depression reached its lowest point, some 15 million Americans were unemployed and nearly half the country’s banks had failed.”With everything except misery in short supply, making do was the only option. Clothes were a classic example. Fashion was by far the first consideration — yet there was already something in place to ensure that clothes could be made from things lying around the house.An impoverished American family living in a shanty, 1936Going back almost a hundred years before the time of the Depression, a change happened in the way goods were transported. Potatoes, flour and animal feed had previously traveled the world in barrels. Now, for reasons of cost, the sturdy wooden containers were replaced with fabric sacks.Companies then observed the sacks being recycled as clothes and decided to market these unlikely objects as possible fashion items. Sacks would arrive ready-printed with attractive images like sunshine and flowers.A group of smiling female workers pose with sacks of flour in the grounds of a British mill during the First World WarAs a 2017 article for Slate.com noted, “By 1925, at least one company, Gingham Girl flour, packaged its goods in dress-quality fabric and used its sacks as a selling point. By the Depression years, printed sacks were widely reused.”Dresses and other creations were worked on by enterprising families. The National Museum of American History wrote that “With feed sacks and flour bags, farm women took thriftiness to new heights of creativity, transforming the humble bags into dresses, underwear, towels, curtains, quilts, and other household necessities.”Children’s clothing made from flour sacksThere was the tricky matter of the manufacturer’s name to consider. Slate mentions a booklet titled Sewing with Cotton Bags, produced by The Textile Bag Manufacturers Association in 1933, which was “advising consumers how to get company logos out of sacks.”For example “you had to soak the logo’s ink in lard or kerosene overnight. By the late 1930s, companies began to use soluble inks that made the process much easier.”Circa 1939: Workers filling colorfully printed flour sacks which housewives use to make dresses because the labels wash out, at Sunbonnet Sue flour mill. Photo by Margaret Bourke-White/The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty ImagesSo eventually there was far more to the humble potato sack than a means of shipping spuds. The style endures into the modern day vintage market, though it shouldn’t be forgotten that its origins lie in a period of unimaginable hardship.Embroidered Flour Sack Photo by Kansas Historical Society“For many women in rural America,” Slate said, “use of these sacks for clothing was a mark of poverty. Soaking off logos, dying fabrics, and using embellishments of ribbon, rickrack, embroidery, and decorative buttons helped make the feed sack dress or shirt less distinguishable from ‘store bought’ garments.”Warehouse worker wheeling colorfully printed flour sacks which housewives use to make dresses because the labels wash out, at Sunbonnet Sue flour mill.

Photo by National Museum of Health and Medicine CC BY SA 2.0The Depression ended, but not before the national psyche had been forever scarred. And there was an intriguing footnote to the story of sack fabric “fashion”, involving a true American icon.In a famous photo from 1951, Marilyn Monroe posed wearing a burlap potato sack. The reason this happened is still debated. One version of the tale goes that a prudish female journalist had deemed Monroe to be far from classy, and better suited to wearing a sack.Marilyn Monroe poses for a portrait in a dress made out of an Idaho potato sack in 1951 in Los Angeles, California. Photo by Earl Theisen/Getty ImagesThe actress obliged, and Twentieth Century Fox were happy to set up the publicity-attracting snap. A different take claims a comment that Marilyn’s beauty would improve even a potato sack was the source of the bizarre picture. Despite the Hollywood mischief-making, there was a serious social undercurrent even years after the Depression.Timeline.com wrote in a 2018 piece that “According to Monroe, the photos were so successful that an Idaho potato farmer actually sent her a whole sack of potatoes as a thank you for the generous publicity, but Monroe apparently never got to enjoy them, saying: ‘There was a potato shortage on then, and the boys in publicity stole them all. I never saw one.’”Read another story from us: Great Depression Grub – 5 Makeshift Meals People Made when Food was ScarceAn ironic development in a situation heavily associated with one of America’s saddest periods.last_img read more

first_imgThe Week Ahead: Gauging Lender Sentiments On Tuesday, June 12, Fannie Mae will release its quarterly Mortgage Lender Sentiment Survey. The survey polls senior executives of Fannie Mae’s lending customers to assess their current activities and market expectations. The findings of this survey help other mortgage and housing professionals to better understand industry trends and assess their own business practices.The last survey, released on March 15, 2018, showed that mortgage lenders reported a net negative profit margin outlook for the sixth consecutive quarter, matching the all-time low reading from Q4 2016. Those who expected a lower profit margin continued to point to “competition from other lenders” as the primary reason, which set another new survey high for the fifth consecutive quarter, while “market trend changes” were cited as the next biggest reason for the first time in three quarters.Giving a glimpse of what can be expected from the latest survey, Fannie Mae’s Chief Economist, Doug Duncan said, “According to our latest Mortgage Lender Sentiment Survey, which we expect to release on Tuesday, lenders expect mortgage demand to soften in the near term.”Here’s what else is in store in The Week Ahead: June 10, 2018 514 Views Share Fannie Mae Lending mortgage Profit Margin rates sentiment 2018-06-10 Radhika Ojha CoreLogic Loan Performance Insights Report, TuesdayConsumer Price Index, Tuesday, 8:30 a.m. ESTFOMC Announcement, Wednesday, 2 p.m. ESTMBA Apps, Wednesday, 7 a.m. ESTConsumer Sentiment Index, Friday, 10 a.m. EST in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Originationlast_img read more

first_imgThe public’s sense of safety has increased and the number of property crimes decreased in his five years at the helm of the justice ministry, minister Ionas Nicolaou said on Friday, adding that serious crime has also declined, as opposed to drug trafficking.At a news conference held to present the ministry’s work over the last five years, Nicolaou said his main drivers since he assumed the ministry have been transparency, meritocracy and the public’s safety.He added that the entire structure of the judiciary will be overhauled by 2020, addressing the issue of delays in dispensing justice.Nicolaou said the creation of the administrative court had lightened the supreme court’s load by 7,800 cases, with 1,300 more filed every year.“At present, the administrative court tries 30 per cent more cases than are filed,” Nicolaou said.In addition, 18 new district court judges have been appointed and the number of appeals court sessions per month has tripled.Progress has also been made on the digitisation of the courts, he added, for which the contract will be awarded shortly.With regard to the police, the minister said its members’ capabilities were upgraded and showcased through training, and cited the agreement with the University of Cyprus for training programmes for new recruits and those selected for promotion to inspector rank.He added that the number of people registered for neighbourhood watch programmes rose from 4,000 in 2012 to 90,000 this year, and cited the example of the village of Dali, where the programme has managed to reduce crime by 45 per cent.On the penal system, Nicolaou said that, beyond the central prison premises, nothing even compares to the previous regime.“The first half of December will see the official opening of the prison wardens’ school,” he said.He added that visitors from other countries are surprised to see that inmates have the option of contacting their families through Skype.A zero-tolerance policy on matters of corruption was introduced, Nicolaou said, noting that the 30 investigators on the team handled 49 cases, of which seven are being heard in court, eight are being prosecuted, and the rest are still being investigated.With regard to the public’s sense of safety for themselves and their properties, Nicolaou said serious crime dropped by 36.1 per cent, while the rate of cases successfully solved rose by 7.61 per cent.“In 2012 robberies were 173, with cases solved at 39.88 per cent, burglaries were 2,953 and 31.66 per cent were solved, and thefts were 1,550 with 35.03 per cent solved,” the minister said.“In 2016, robberies were 105, of which 52.38 per cent were solved, burglaries were 1,687 with 33.85 per cent solved, and thefts 722 with 48.61 per cent solved.”Drugs, he said, were the only criminal activity that remained on the rise.“In the five years from 2008 to 2012 2,312 cannabis plants were seized, while from 2013 to 2017 seizures were 4.174,” he said.“In the same periods, cocaine seized jumped from 33 to 332 kilos, while ecstasy pill seizures rose from 11,923 to 19,331.”The spike in the number of seizures, Nicolaou conceded, was attributable both to the increased effectiveness of law enforcement and increased demand for drugs.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
