Snubbed by Renard Hakim Ziyech is Being Courted by English Clubs

Rabat – Many have predicted for Hakim Ziyech a bright future with the national Moroccan football squad.Such a talented young playmaker would have been of great help to “Atlas Lions”, who have been struggling for years to perform better and regain some pride.Moroccan team actually did so during the last African Cup of Nations when it reached the quarter finals for the first time in 13 years. But they just did so without Ziyech. The Ajax Amsterdam midfielder has been on fire lately, giving great performances with the Dutch club. But for some reason, he has been kept out of the national squad for some time.Ziyech is certainly the biggest Dutch football talent of Moroccan origins in the last few years.A playmaker with a talent similar to those great footballers who provide their teammates with important assists, thus, creating golden opportunities for them to score goals, the young star would have been major asset to the Moroccan team.This season he created more chances than any other player in Eredivisie (Dutch Football League), with 106 chances. His nearest challenger is PSV Eindhoven’s Davy Propper, who created only 67 chances.Yet, after several national games with the team, Ziyech has been snubbed by Hervé Renard, Morocco’s national team coach, who favored the more experienced Mbark Boussoufa over the younger Amsterdam midfielder.Being excluded from the squad he preferred over the Dutch national team left a bitter taste in Ziyech’s mouth, prompting him to say he would not play for Morocco again as long as Hervé Renard remains coach.Despite being snubbed by the French manager, Hakim Ziyech is being courted by European football clubs, especially in England.According to , several English clubs such as Swansea City, Newcastle and Southampton all expressed interest in  the young Moroccan player.Moving to the English Premier League will be a greater opportunity for the Moroccan to showcase his talent.Giving more outstanding performance will certainly be hailed by Moroccan fans who like to celebrate one of their own. On the other hand, it will be bittersweet for all those wishing to see Hakim Ziyech perform even better with the Moroccan national team. read more

Western Asia Ban urges greater efforts to reduce inequality and create jobs

“The recession continues to affect every part of the world. Now more than ever, we must boost decent work, foster social inclusion, and reduce inequalities,” Mr. Ban said in a message to the 26th ministerial session of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), which got under way in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, yesterday.“We must make a special effort to expand hope and possibilities for young people,” the Secretary-General in the message, which was delivered by Bader Omar Al Dafa, the Executive Director of ESCWA.Mr. Ban said the session was taking place at a time when climate change, the scarcity of water and the effects of the food crisis continue to threaten the region. He said he was encouraged by the fact that discussions in the meeting would focus on youth and promoting opportunities for them.“The UN International Year of Youth begins on 12 August. Through this effort, we hope to recognize the contributions and advance the full and effective participation of youth in all aspects of society,” the Secretary-General said.He also welcomed discussions on improving human and institutional capacity in the region, saying public sector modernization and administrative reform are central for the attainment of national development goals.“I count on you to provide credible policy options that are tailored to local needs and will lead to more effective government, stronger communities and brighter future for all in the ESCWA region,” Mr. Ban added.Mr. Al Dafa said ESCWA remained committed to tackling development challenges in Western Asia by finding practical solutions that were compatible with the specific demographic, social and economic realities in the region.The Speaker of the Lebanese Parliament, Nabih Berri, also urged delegates to focus on finding effective development strategies that would benefit the youth.The Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), Abdulrahman Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah, praised the role ESCWA was playing in facilitating constructive interaction among Member States by providing institutional framework for closer cooperation.Headquartered in Beirut, ESCWA is one of the five regional commissions under the administrative direction of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The Member States are Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen. 20 May 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called for concerted efforts to accelerate efforts to reduce social inequalities in Western Asia through the boosting of decent job opportunities especially for the region’s youth. read more

Factory of the future NB researcher to study 3Dprinting powered by thought

FREDERICTON — New Brunswick researchers are plotting what they call the “factories of the future” by developing 3D-printing technologies they said could pave the way for the next industrial revolution.Mechanical engineer Ed Cyr is studying the applications of artificial intelligence in manufacturing 3D-printed materials as part of a $1.25-million innovation program from the McCain Foundation announced at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton Tuesday.Cyr will spend his UNB fellowship, valued at $50,000, working to understand the behaviour of 3D-printed materials with the goal of harnessing their special properties to improve conventional methods of manufacturing.“We’re not really sure how these materials behave, and how to best use these new methods,” Cyr said in a phone interview. “If we can understand why (these behaviours) are happening … then we can design the part to use the best part of that behaviour.”Many manufacturers have started adopting 3D-printing methods to improve efficiency and cut back on resource waste, said Cyr.Unlike traditional manufacturing processes, he said, in which the desired object is extracted from a block of material, additive manufacturing — the industrial version of 3D-printing — uses chemical compounds to build a digital design layer by layer.Cyr intends to take the advantages of this technology to the next level by developing 3D-printing methods capable of introducing new behaviours that cannot be found in conventional materials.For example, he said he is studying a printed aluminum alloy that, when put under certain types of stress, increases in strength far more than a typical sheet metal.“That would be would be useful for something like armour, perhaps, or maybe even building the wall of a ship,” he said. “For impacts happening at higher speed, like an icebreaker, it would become stronger instead of more brittle.”Later in his research, Cyr said he wants to “push the boundaries” of manufacturing by investigating the possibility of 3D-printing powered by thought.“For a human to sit down and come up with the optimal design, we would have to come up with thousands, and thousands, and that would be incredibly time consuming,” said Cyr.“The beauty of a computer is it has the ability to go through those thousands and thousands of designs. It can actually model a total design space and tell us which one is the best, and it can even come up with things we might not even think of.”It may seem like the stuff of science fiction, Cyr acknowledged, but he said artificial intelligence is already testing the limits of what we thought possible.For example, Cyr said researchers in Europe have developed 3D-printing technology for a “bridge (that) could build and design itself.” According to Cyr, the machine scanned the distance the bridge needed to cross, simulated its structure, and then printed it.“It looked at the problem, designed its own solution, and then built it,” he said.Mohsen Mohammadi, Cyr’s supervisor at UNB’s Marine Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence, said he hopes to take this research out of the lab and into the manufacturing plant as soon as possible.“We start up from the nano-scale, move up to micro-scale, meso, macro and then we think that we can change things in macro,” said Mohammadi. “I think for sure we will see the factory of the future soon … and it’s going to revolutionize the whole manufacturing medium.”Mohammadi said the plan is test Cyr’s research by pairing 3D-printing technologies with conventional machinery to create pilot “factories of the future” in New Brunswick.“All these new technologies, they sound actually far away, but they are coming to us,” said Mohammadi. “If we don’t practice them here in New Brunswick, in Atlantic Canada, in the Maritimes, we will be behind.”While the so-called “age of automation” may have depressed some labour markets, Mohammadi said he believes the “age of augmentation,” with industry enhanced artificial intelligence, could be a job creator in the province.“Our workforce will have a new tool in their tool box,” he said. “We are not only actually going to affect the number of workforce, we think these will actually train the workforce for the new generation of technologies.”— By Adina Bresge in Halifax read more

Vinnie Jones and wife Tanya both being treated for skin cancer

first_imgFORMER FOOTBALLER Vinnie Jones has announced that he has skin cancer – and so does his wife Tanya.The US-based British actor spoke to The Sun about their battle, saying that he first noticed a small dark mark below his eye in February.He had it examined by a doctor, and was diagnosed with skin cancer. He has since been told that more tumours have been found on his body, and has been receiving treatment.Jones told the newspaper that he is fighting the cancer “with everything I’ve got”.Vinnie Jones and wife Tanya. Pic: Lewis Whyld/PA WireHe also revealed that Tanya, his wife, has skin cancer. In her case, it is believed to be related to drugs she has been taking since having a heart transplant 25 years ago.Earlier this week, actor Hugh Jackman posted a photograph on his Instagram account that revealed he had basal cell carcinoma removed from his nose.Basal cell carcinoma is not the same as melanoma, and is a commonly-diagnosed form of skin cancer. Melanoma is one of the most common cancers found in Ireland and worldwide.Each year, around 721 cases of melanoma are diagnosed in Ireland, according to the Irish Cancer Society.For more information and advice on melanoma and other forms of cancer, visit the Irish Cancer Society’s website or phone its National Cancer Helpline on freephone 1800 200 700 (Monday to Thursday 9am – 7pm, Friday 9am – 5pm).Read: Mortalities due to cancer, heart disease significantly down in last decade>last_img read more

BlackBerry NSeries QWERTY breaks cover looks like a Blackberry

first_imgAt last, RIM’s upcoming QWERTY BlackBerry N-Series phone has been photographed and leaked to the web. Around two weeks ago its all-touch L-Series cousin appeared, where it was photographed repeatedly in all its glory. Unlike the shots of the L-Series, whoever snapped the BlackBerry N-Series only shared a single picture. And where the L-Series photos were clear and well-light, the N-series looks like it was photographed in very low light and in a big hurry.Still, the photo shows off what die-hard BlackBerry fans have been waiting to see: a BlackBerry 10 smartphone with the company’s trademark keypad. The N-Series looks a lot like RIM’s current BlackBerry Bold 9900, though it’s apparent that the screen is slightly larger and the top and bottom bezels are a bit slimmer. The keyboard is also no longer curved. Instead, it’s been straightened out like the keyboard on the Porsche Design BlackBerry P’9981.Not much is known about the N-Series hardware yet. It appeared earlier this year in leaked presentation slides, which noted that the roughly 2-inch square display would have a native resolution of 720×720 pixels. That’s a pixel density of around 320PPI for RIM’s first touch/QWERTY BlackBerry 10 hybrid.As for the rest of the phone’s hardware, it’s still a guessing. CEO Thorsten Heins said that RIM’s first BlackBerry 10 phones would stack up well against competitors’ offerings. That’s not much to go on, but it’s something. Insiders think that RIM could be planning to use TI OMAP 4 processors in the BlackBerry L-Series and N-Series, though other leaked information hinted that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips will power the phones.We’ll find out for sure on January 30th when RIM officially pulls back the curtain.CNbeta via CrackBerrylast_img read more

Italy sends helicopters to check on migrant ship that sailed in from

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Italian authorities sent two helicopters Tuesday to meet a cargo ship believed to be carrying hundreds of migrants after a passenger sent a distress call earlier when the ship was off Greece.The operation came two days after a Greek-operated ferry caught fire between Greece and Italy with the loss of at least 11 lives, prompting a two-day search and rescue effort.Italian air force spokesman Capt. Stefano Testa said the Moldovan-flagged Blue Sky M freighter was about 20 miles (30 kilometers) off Santa Maria di Leuca, on the southernmost tip of the “heel” of boot-shaped Italy.Port officials in Bari said the teams were landing on the ship as a precaution to see if there were any problems on board and ensure the situation was under control.Earlier, Greek authorities scrambled a navy frigate and helicopter after a man who said he was a passenger called emergency services when the ship was off Corfu, saying hundreds of migrants were on board and needed water, food and blankets.A Greek coast guard official said the helicopter located the ship within Italian waters, and its captain said the vessel wasn’t in distress and didn’t require assistance.Italian authorities were notified, and the cargo ship continued on its own toward Italy, the official said on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak on the record.Tens of thousands of migrants and refugees, most fleeing conflict or poverty in the Middle East, Africa and Asia, attempt to reach the European Union each year, most heading by sea to Italy or Greece.On Sunday, the Norman Atlantic passenger ferry caught fire in the same area. Authorities rescued more than 400 people, and are still searching for potential missing passengers from the vessel.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

The county’s property crime rate has also been at or below the national property crime rate every year since 1994, according to the report.Burglaries declined countywide in2018 for the sixth consecutive year to 8,267, the lowest number since 1980, when burglaries totaled 38,752.Larceny was the most common crime in the county last year, totaling 38,642 — up from 37,942 such crimes in 2017, but still well below the 1989 peak of 85,448, according to the SANDAG report.The county’s 2018 violent crime rate remained unchanged from the 2017 rate of 3.41 per 1,000 people. The region’s violent crime rate — which includes homicides, rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults — peaked at 9.76 per 1,000 people in 1992 and bottomed out at 3.28 in 2014.“When considering these statistics, it is important to note that while San Diego remains one of safest parts of the country, increased crime numbers may not always be a bad thing if it means better reporting of such crimes as rape or domestic violence,” said Cynthia Burke, SANDAG’s division director of criminal justice.The number of reported hate crimes declined from 95 in 2017 to 76 in 2018, according to SANDAG. More than half of reported hate crimes, 54 percent, were deemed to be motivated by race or ethnicity, while a quarter were motivated by sexual orientation and 21 percent by religion. Nearly 60 percent of race-motivated hate crimes were targeted at black residents.Lemon Grove had the most reported violent crimes in 2018 among jurisdictions within the county at 5.78 per 1,000 people, according to the report. Del Mar had the most reported property crimes with 27.3 per 1,000 people.

Murray sponsors bill to help dairy industry

first_imgDairy producers here and around the country could sidestep a repeat of the industry’s 2009 oversupply crisis, says U.S. Sen. Patty Murray., D-Wash.Murray has co-sponsored the newly introduced Dairy Price Stabilization Act with Vermont Sens. Bernie Sanders and Patrick Leahy. The bill is designed to prevent volatility in milk prices by requiring the U.S. Department of Agriculture to determine the market’s growth capacity every three months. Producers who exceed the percentage increase allowed by the USDA would pay a fee, which would be distributed to all farmers. The dairy industry suffered nationwide in 2009 when oversupply caused prices to fall below the cost of production. Washington is the 10th largest dairy producer in the country, including a handful of local operations.last_img read more

DopaFit™ offers way to fight back against Parkinsons disease

first_imgBy Matthew DunnChad Moir, the founder of DopaFit.Region – A thumping cadence slowly develops as members of the DopaFit™ boxing class in West Boylston land punches against the boxing bags stationed throughout the room. Participants of this class are not training to learn self-defense, or for the sole purpose of a cardiovascular work-out. Rather, they are already engaged in a fight against Parkinson’s disease, and hope to delay or reduce the impacts of the disease with each deliberate punch of the bag.Chad Moir, the founder of DopaFit, knows first-hand the impacts Parkinson’s disease can have not only on those who suffer from it, but on their family and loved ones as well.Tim MacMillan at a Dopafit class.“My mother, Cindy, is the inspiration behind DopaFit. She passed away fromcomplications due to her Parkinson’s disease at the young age of 55,” he said.During that difficult time, Moir used exercise to help him cope with the loss of his mother. Eventually, he decided he would take revenge on Parkinson’s disease, turning his frustration and anger into a viable Parkinson’s disease movement program to help manage and ease the symptoms of those affected.“After doing extensive research I realized that exercise is the only proven way to slow down the progression of Parkinson’s disease,” Moir said, adding that “For most people living with Parkinson’s disease medication is necessary to stay mobile and to be able to continue leading an active life.“I used my knowledge as an exercise specialist to create Dopafit, a Parkinson’s disease movement program. Our program has helped many people with PD start lessen the amount of medication they take and are doing things they have not been able to do it years.”Moir’s West Boylston DopaFit class has helped local participant Tim MacMillan manage his Parkinson’s symptoms on a daily basis.MacMillan is a two-year veteran of the class and is also a strong advocate of its effectiveness.“I got started in DopaFit Boxing back in May of 2017 as coach Chad Moir came to one of my APDA (American Parkinson Disease Association) monthly support groups”, MacMillan said when describing how he got his start in the DopaFit boxing program.“He [Chad] needed a volunteer from the audience to get up and box with him. When I got up to box he actually told me that I was spot-on and wanted me as his first client when he opened up his studio in West Boylston. I have been going to all his classes faithfully which I find greatly beneficial,”  MacMillan added.Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological disease that impacts thousands of lives daily, slowly robbing those affected of their motor function, balance, and reflexes– but members of the DopaFit class have found a way to fight back.According to MacMillan, “[The] biggest impact on me fighting Parkinson ’s disease is definitely DopaFit boxing, which I find helps out tremendously as I may go a couple to a few days with little [few] tremors.”DopaFit is a boxing class based on the previously established Rock Steady Boxing method, an exercise regimen specifically designed help reduce, delay, or mitigate some of the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Focusing on exercises utilizing motor skills, strength, and balance, DopaFit aims to strengthen and preserve many of the same attributes Parkinson’s tries to steal.According to Moir, “A phase II clinical trial, called the Study in Parkinson Disease of Exercise (SPARX), was recently conducted by researchers from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, IL, and the University of Colorado in Denver. Their findings suggest that high-intensity physical exercise is beneficial for people with early stage Parkinson’s disease, as it may delay the progression of symptoms related to motor abilities.”MacMillian can see these benefits in his daily life. With no shortage of enthusiasm, he describes a moment in time where his hard work and commitment at DopaFit was apparent to his wife as well.“One time when my wife and I were holding hands she said, ‘Hold my hand again, I want to see something’. I held her hand again and she said, “Oh my God I don’t really feel any tremors, and you really don’t seem to be shaking as much’. I had been to DopaFit boxing that morning,” he recalled.Not only does DopaFit Boxing give each participant the power to fight back against their disease, but it also serves as a support group, and encourages each individual to continue their fight alongside one another.As Moir points out, “If you have Parkinson’s disease and you want to delay the progression of your symptoms, you should exercise two-three times a week with your heart rate between 80 to 85 percent maximum. It is that simple.”Tim MacMillan, and many others, slide their hands inside boxing gloves and continue to try to knock-out a disease that has taken so much from so many. With new advances in therapy and programs like DopaFit Boxing, it is clear the fight is nowhere near over.For more information on the DopaFit program visit read more

The Week Ahead Analyzing Lender Sentiment

first_img Lenders Optimism 2017-04-09 Seth Welborn This Wednesday, Lenders One Cooperative will release results from its survey on mortgage lender sentiment. The survey will cover jumbo loans, growth, and foreclosure, and will discuss emerging trends in the market.  Lenders One is an end to end marketplace for mortgage bankers.Lenders One’s previous annual Mortgage Barometer from 2016, a survey of 200 mortgage lending professionals, found the majority of lenders to expect mortgage purchase production to increase that year. It identified the growing housing market for Millennials, as in 2016, many Millennials began to reach the “peak age” for homebuying.In the Survey 69 percent of lenders named “boomerang buyers,” or those who can now qualify for a mortgage after undergoing a short sale, foreclosure or bankruptcy, as the the group which would present the best growth opportunities. Another 71 percent named Hispanics as the group which would present the best growth opportunities. The top tactic for growth lenders named was to reach new demographics.“The strong confidence levels we’re seeing among lenders highlight the continued bounce back from one of the most challenging real estate and lending environments in U.S. history,” said Interim CEO of Lenders One Daniel T. Goldman in the survey. “In an environment where lenders can once again focus on business growth initiatives, it will be more important than ever for mortgage professionals to have access to the tools and ongoing training they need to capitalize on these emerging trends.”The Lenders One Mortgage Barometer is conducted online among a random sample of 200 mortgage lenders. in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News, Origination, Servicing April 9, 2017 605 Views The Week Ahead: Analyzing Lender Sentiment This Week’s ScheduleNeel Kashkari Speaks at meeting of the Minnesota Business Partnership, Tuesday, 1:45 p.m. ESTTreasury Budget, Wednesday, 2 p.m. ESTMBA Mortage Applications, Wednesday 7 a.m. ESTFreddie Mac Weekly Mortgage Survey, Thursday, 10 a.m. EST Sharelast_img read more
