Moroccos Abderrazak Hamdallah Becomes Saudi Leagues Top Scorer

Rabat – Moroccan footballer Abderrazak Hamdallah has become the leading scorer of all time in Saudi Arabia’s professional league after scoring 29 goals for Al-Nassr football club this season.The BBC reported that Hamdallah outperformed Al Ahli’s Syrian footballer Omar Al Somah, who had made 27 goals in the 2015-2016 season.The 28-year-old footballer joined Al-Nassr football club in 2018. He also played for Morocco’s under-23 football team and the national football team. Hamdallah made his debut with the Atlas Lions in a friendly against Burkina Faso in February 2012. The head coach of Morocco’s national football team, Herve Renard, had summoned Hamdallah to play with Morocco in March. The BBC said that the footballer could not accept Renard’s invitation for family reasons.Renard has commented on Hamdallah’s decision, saying that he spoke to him on the phone. “He declined for reasons you know, I had 33 other players to manage, so I turned the page.”Read also: CAN 2019: Morocco’s Atlas Lions Again in ‘Group of Death’It remains to be seen whether Renard will call Hamdallah for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (CAN), which will take place in June in Egypt. read more

In droughthit Madagascar US donation allows UN to widen delivery of food

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) will this week start distributing emergency assistance to about 100,000 people in southern Madagascar suffering from the effects of a crippling drought, following a donation from the United States.The donation of $1.4 million is being used to give out 2,000 tons of sorghum and 440 tons of lentils so that 100,000 beneficiaries can have a full family ration for two and a half months.WFP’s country director in Madagascar, Krystyna Bednarska, said the agency was extremely grateful for Washington’s swift response to an appeal by Malagasy authorities, who are trying to help an estimated 465,000 people left vulnerable across 33 districts in the south of the country.“WFP now has sufficient resources to start providing food to the most vulnerable families in the hardest-hit parts of the region,” Ms. Bednarska said.The first shipment of 950 tons of sorghum reached Madagascar on 9 January, and the remainder is expected to arrive in the coming weeks. Targeted distribution by the Government, WFP and its non-governmental organization (NGO) partners is set to begin over the next few days.Since September, when it began providing special assistance in the south through food-for-work programmes, WFP has distributed 2,000 tons of food to about 66,000 people.The agency is also giving assistance in nutrition rehabilitation centres to malnourished children and pregnant and nursing women, funded in part by a €900,000 (euros) donation from France.But the agency needs another $1.1 million immediately so that it can supply an extra 1,400 tons of food aid to tens of thousands of people. 19 January 2007The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) will this week start distributing emergency assistance to about 100,000 people in southern Madagascar suffering from the effects of a crippling drought, following a donation from the United States. read more

Sudan to dominate Security Councils intensive December schedule – President

4 December 2007The Council would address the issue of Kosovo, after having received the report on negotiations on the future status of the UN-administered province. “When the time comes we will assess and decide how to go forward on process and on substance,” the President said regarding the Council’s next steps with regard to Kosovo. With just weeks remaining before the hybrid United Nations-African Union peacekeeping force is due to take over from the existing AU operation in Darfur, the situation in Sudan is set to dominate the Security Council’s programme for December, its President for the month said today.Briefing reporters in New York, Ambassador Marcello Spatafora of Italy, which holds the Council’s rotating presidency for this month, said the Council will be focusing on Sudan over the next several days. In particular, since the transfer of authority from AMIS, the AU peacekeeping mission in Darfur, to the hybrid force – known as UNAMID – will take place on 31 December, it will be necessary for the Council to “assess where we stand with the deployment of the force,” especially given the difficulties associated with the deployment that were cited by the UN peacekeeping chief last week, Mr. Spatafora said. Also on Sudan, the 15-member body will hear a briefing tomorrow from the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Luis Moreno-Ocampo, on the Court’s activities related to Darfur. Then on Thursday, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator John Holmes will brief on his nine-day trip to Africa, during which he visited Darfur, as well as Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya. “Our main and first concern has to be the situation on the ground,” Mr. Spatafora said, adding that Mr. Holmes’ briefing will be crucial to “really have a first-hand assessment of where we are now in Sudan.”Sudan is on the agenda again for Friday, when Mr. Spatafora, in his capacity as chair of the Sudan sanctions committee, will brief the Council on the report of the committee’s panel of experts.Among the other African issues that will occupy the Council’s attention this month will be the situation in Somalia, which has been described by the top UN envoy in that country as “the worst crisis in Africa,” stated Mr. Spatafora. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is expected to submit proposals to the Council for the renewal of the UN political office in Somalia, whose mandate expires at the end of this year.The Council will also discuss Guinea-Bissau, which Mr. Spatafora said “represents a crucial test case for the UN’s ability to respond to post-conflict challenges.” Discussions are expected to focus on recent developments in the country’s fight against drug trafficking, which the Council has recognized as a “most serious and imminent threat.” Turning to the Middle East, Mr. Spatafora said that the outgoing Commissioner of the International Independent Investigation Commission (IIIC) examining the February 2005 assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri and others, Serge Brammertz, will brief the Council tomorrow. The Council is also expected to hear from senior UN officials on the Israeli-Palestinian issue.On Iran, he said the Council is expected to receive the quarterly report of the Iran sanctions committee this month. Asked about the recently released United States intelligence report concluding that there has been no ongoing nuclear weapons programme in Iran since the fall of 2003, Mr. Spatafora replied: “We will see at the proper time if and how this will impact on our work.” On Myanmar, he said the Council is keeping in close contact with UN Envoy Ibrahim Gambari, who just returned from the region and is planning to visit Myanmar at the end of this year or early next year. During this month the Council is expected to renew the mandates of a number of UN operations, including those in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Burundi and the Golan Heights. It is also expected to renew the chairs of the Council’s subsidiary bodies, as well as elect two members of the Peacebuilding Commission. The Council will also hold meetings on the situations in Burundi and Sierra Leone – the first two countries to be on the agenda of the Commission. In addition, it will take up the Liberian sanctions regime. read more

Stocks in for cautious week after major jobs disappointment ahead of earnings

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Toronto stock market could be in for further selling pressure this week after a dismal string of sessions after weak jobs data from Canada and the U.S. raised worries about economic recovery while traders braced for the start of a flood of first quarter U.S. earnings reports.The TSX tumbled 3.27 per cent last week, erasing all gains for the year to date and then some. The rot started early in the week with Chinese purchasing managers index data that failed to meet expectations, followed by other data showing slower than expected expansion in the American manufacturing and service sectors.The weak was capped by reports showing the Canadian economy shed 55,000 jobs — all full time — in March.“It’s not a surprise from that context to see the Toronto market underperforming,” said Andrew Pyle, investment adviser at ScotiaMcLeod in Peterborough, Ont.“I think it’s surprising for people to see the extent of the underperformance (where) you can wipe out the progress that you’ve made for the entire year.”And in the U.S., the economy only managed to crank out 88,000 jobs last month amid reduced expectations after payroll firm ADP had delivered a worse than expected assessment of private sector job creation.“It was very discouraging and many people were caught off guard with how bad it was,” said John Stephenson, portfolio manager at First Asset Funds Inc.The report also indicated that a non-stop rally on American markets that took the benchmark S&P 500 up more than 10 per cent since the first of the year is due for a pause.And that could come as a bit of a relief to traders worried about the pace of the strong rally on American markets, based on a steady run of positive economic news — particularly a resurgent housing sector — and continued stimulus measures from the U.S. Federal Reserve.“If you’re sitting in cash or if you’ve been scared or if you have been a typical long only investor, institutional or otherwise, you probably felt you had to hold your nose and buy stocks as the market went higher,” said Stephenson.“And now I think for many people, it’s a welcome change.”Meanwhile, aluminum giant Alcoa (NYSE:AA) kicks off the first quarter earnings season after the markets close on Monday amid expectations that the recent run of soft economic data has lowered the bar for expectations.“Analysts are starting to revise downward their forecasts numbers,” said Stephenson.“And you’re looking forward to a season coming up, the first quarter, where it looks as if it will be disappointing relative to expectations.”Alcoa is expected to produce earnings of nine cents a share, a penny less than a year ago.The company is regarded as a proxy for the economic conditions in general as its products are used in everything from appliances to aircraft to cars.Meanwhile, the glum economic data and a pause in the American stock rally could benefit the TSX in a couple of ways.“You have to have something right now to interrupt this flight of quality into the U.S. market,” said Pyle, adding that could be the weak jobs number.“Or it could be initial signs out of earnings season that begins next week that are again below expectations.”And eroding positive sentiment for New York could also benefit the TSX’s worst performer. The markets’s global gold index has tumbled 22 per cent so far this year and led declines last week.But bullion prices and gold stocks picked up Friday in the wake of the disappointing jobs data.“If there is something that could upset the applecart in New York to stop this rally, it probably would vault volatility higher and that would probably cause gold to rise and ironically again, the materials sector would pick up support from that, ” said Pyle. by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 7, 2013 6:00 am MDT Stocks in for cautious week after major jobs disappointment ahead of earnings read more

Head of UN independent panel urges diplomatic solution to worsening Syria conflict

In an interview with UN Radio, the chairperson of the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, Paulo Pinheiro, expressed concern that the conflict in Syria had deteriorated since his Commission presented its report to the Human Rights Council in Geneva last month. “The civil war is much more acute and much more serious than one month ago,” said Mr. Pinheiro, noting that children, women and the elderly were suffering disproportionately from the continuing violence. “The civilian population is paying the price of this conflict because the Government regularly bombards the neighbourhoods where the rebels are and the rebels take refuge among the civilians without distinguishing themselves from the general population,” he continued. According to the UN, an estimated 20,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began some 19 months ago. In addition, a further 2.5 million Syrians urgently need humanitarian aid, and over 340,000 have crossed the border to Syria’s neighbouring countries.Mr. Pinheiro, a Brazilian diplomat who previously served as the UN Special Rapporteur for Burundi from 1995 to 1999, acknowledged the difficulties the Commission had encountered in preparing its report, including a lack of access to the embattled country for fact-finding missions. He noted, however, that the lack of an on-the-ground presence did not imply a lack of information. “It’s precisely because we don’t have access to Syria that we need to prepare our report using all the possibilities,” Mr. Pinheiro stated, adding that his commission was retrieving its information from a range of sources, such as refugees and families still inside the country as well as members of the armed forces and the opposition’s Free Syrian Army. The Commission chairperson also drew attention to the expanding list of potential war crimes committed by both sides of the conflict. At the presentation of his report to the Human Rights Council in September, Mr. Pinheiro made clear that the Commission had found reasonable grounds to believe that Government forces and members of the Government-controlled militia known as the Shabiha, had committed war crimes, gross violations against human rights and crimes against humanity.Violations conducted by Government forces include murder, summary executions, torture, arbitrary arrest and detention, sexual violence, violations of children’s rights, pillaging and destruction of civilian objects – including hospitals and schools.In a recent survey of the violence, the UN World Health Organization noted that almost 67 per cent of Syria’s public hospitals have been affected as a result of the conflict, and half of the country’s ambulances have been the subject of attack, leaving many of them out of service, according to the health agency. Mr. Pinheiro noted that armed opposition groups had also committed war crimes, including murder and torture, and were recruiting children under 18 years of age to fight or perform auxiliary roles. The Commission chairperson said that the additional element of radical Islamist groups to the fighting mix was proving to be “more scary and worrisome,” and that the jihadists were “taking advantage opportunistically of the conflict” to pursue their own agenda as well as commit abuses. But, he stressed, there was a clear disparity in terms of the intensity of human rights violations perpetrated by the Syrian Armed Forces and the opposition groups for what he described as “a simple reason” – the Government forces outnumber the rebels. Turning to the efforts for the international community to agree on a unified approach to resolving the conflict, including the deadlock in the UN Security Council, Mr. Pinheiro stated that only diplomacy would suffice in bringing the violence to an end.“It’s the responsibility of the international community. It’s the responsibility of the Security Council to find the solution,” he said. “There is no military solution for the crisis. The only solution is diplomatic and political, through a negotiation. We are repeating this as a mantra.” read more

Privatelyeducated drug dealer spared jail as lawyer claims stress of case has

first_imgDuring a plea for clemency, Murray, who is running a catering business as well as studying an events management degree at Manchester Metropolitan University, said the arrest had led her to suffer from eczema and anxiety.Defence lawyer Richard English said: “Using recreational drugs as students is not exceptional – in fact it is unexceptional. Miss Murray did not see anything morally wrong with what she did. However, she now accepts plainly that it was wrong.”The money was pooled and the drugs were shared. A prison sentence would be a punishment but it would do nothing but blight a very bright career. She is a very clever, ambitious and driven young lady.” Poppy Murray helped her younger brother run a student drug dealing ringCredit: Cavendish Press Joel MurrayCredit: Cavendish Press Joel Murray He added: “She is suffering from anxiety and she has eczema which is due to this case. She had to leave a college course at Leeds University because she was too worried to leave her house. To her credit she has continued her university course at Manchester Metropolitan University and is expected to receive a good degree in event management.”She works at a city centre hotel and I am told that she is very good at what she does. She is a very clever, ambitious and driven young lady.”She has also recently set up her own business with her friend. They cook 200 meals a week and deliver them. I am told that even though it is just in the early stages they are already making money.”According her Facebook page Poppy – who attended the £10,000 a year St Bedes Roman Catholic College, in Manchester – works with the events team at the four-star Midland Hotel in Manchester city centre.Pictures on her social media show her drinking champagne on a balcony at a city centre apartment and partying with friends at music festivals. Joel’s Facebook page shows him on a snowboarding holiday and drinking cocktails in an exclusive restaurant. He also sent a group text message to 16 friends saying he had a high purity haul of the drug adding: “Yo its Joel – some killer raw there yo”.Police arrested the pair after a raid on their suburban family semi-detached home in Middleton, Greater Manchester following a tip-off. Amphetamines were found stuffed in a freezer and the siblings’ mobile phones were examined, with one showing evidence of a £750 cocaine deal.At Minshull Street Crown Court, Joel and Poppy pleaded to supplying cocaine.But although he was locked away for seven years, his older sister, who initially claimed she did not see “anything morally wrong” with supplying “recreational” drugs to friends, got 12 months’ jail, suspended for 18 months. She was also ordered to complete 80 hours of unpaid work. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Poppy Murray attended the £10,000 a year St Bedes Roman Catholic College, in ManchesterCredit: Cavendish Press The court heard the drugs raid occurred on August 27 2014 after police suspected another family member was supplying amphetamines.Tim Brennand said: “Amphetamines were seized from a freezer in the outhouse and Joel Murray’s attic bedroom was also searched. A black Nokia mobile phone was found and examined and text messages were found that were suggestive of the purchase and supply of illegal drugs. Poppy’s iPhone 5 was also seized.”Between the 22 and 26th of August, just the day before the search, text messages were sent regarding purchasing a large quantity of cocaine and offering it for sale. Another message was seen to be purchasing Benzphetamine, which can be used in the preparation and the cutting of cocaine.”This significantly demonstrates the level of organisation and significant inference on Joel to use it. On the 22nd of August there was a text detailing the purchase of half an ounce of cocaine costing £750. Nine minutes later texts were sent to 16 different people to sell quantities of high purity cocaine.”The texts read that there was ‘raw’ drugs for sale. Poppy said: ‘do you want me to ask’ and this introduced the supply of drugs to a party. It was decided how much Poppy wanted and a delivery was made to where Poppy was. There were texts also disputing how much money had been paid.”Police also found a set of electronic scales in Joel’s bedroom alongside a notepad which at the top had a list called “snowers”. There was also a list of drug buyers for cocaine and cannabis called “what we sniff”.Neither the brother nor the sister gave comment in interviews to police.Joel also pleaded guilty to possessing 2,030 MDMA tablets worth £6,090 and 606g of cannabis worth £8,480 after the drugs were found hidden in a bucket inside his wardrobe during a different police search.His lawyer Henry Blackshaw said: “The strongest mitigation for him is his age and his lack of maturity. The gravity of the offending perhaps did not give the correct connotations to him. Recreational use of of cocaine with young people is very prevalent in society now which could reduce the gravity of the situation.”He could also have been excited by the illicit use of cocaine. Through me he displays a significant degree of guilt including the situation his sister finds herself in. He is very conscious of her being here in court no small part is due to him.”Passing sentence the judge Mr Recorder Eric Lamb told Poppy: “I have been persuaded that you were pooling resources together to pay for the drugs. It was a foolish decision which you have clearly thought better of since.” Poppy Murray attended the £10,000 a year St Bedes Roman Catholic College, in Manchester A prison sentence would be a punishment but it would do nothing but blight a very bright career.

first_img January 2, 2015 — Noninvasive brain scans, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), have led to basic science discoveries about the human brain, but they’ve had only limited impacts on people’s day-to-day lives. A review article published in the Jan. 7 issue of the Cell Press journal Neuron, however, highlights a number of recent studies showing that brain imaging can help predict an individual’s future learning, criminality, health-related behaviors and response to drug or behavioral treatments. The technology may offer opportunities to personalize educational and clinical practices.John Gabrieli, M.D., of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge and his colleagues describe the predictive power of brain imaging across a variety of different future behaviors, including: infants’ later performance in reading; students’ later performance in math; criminals’ likelihood of becoming repeat offenders; adolescents’ future drug and alcohol use; and addicts’ likelihood of relapse.”Presently, we often wait for failure, in school or in mental health, to prompt attempts to help, but by then a lot of harm has occurred,” says Gabrieli. “If we can use neuroimaging to identify individuals at high risk for future failure, we may be able to help those individuals avoid such failure altogether.”The authors also point to the clear ethical and societal issues that are raised by studies attempting to predict individuals’ behavior. “We will need to make sure that knowledge of future behavior is used to personalize educational and medical practices, and not be used to limit support for individuals at higher risk of failure,” says Gabrieli. “For example, rather than simply identifying individuals to be more or less likely to succeed in a program of education, such information could be used to promote differentiated education for those less likely to succeed with the standard education program.”For more information: www.cell.com/neuron FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 16, 2019 Profound Medical Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Tulsa-Pro Profound Medical Corp. announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to… read more News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 07, 2019 Contrast Use in First Transthoracic Echocardiogram for Heart Failure Reduces Repeat Testing Heart failure is the fourth most common cause for all admission to U.S. hospitals, and it is the most common reason for… read more Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

Paphos prepares to welcome Berliner Philharmoniker

first_imgPaphos will have the great honour of hosting the internationally acclaimed Berliner Philharmoniker in a unique concert on Monday at noon at the Castle square, marking one of the most special moments of Pafos2017.The Berliner Philharmoniker and the Embassy of Germany, in parallel with Monday’s concert, have created and organised the #UnitedByMusic Youth Orchestra, bringing together young Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot musicians with those of the Berliner Philharmoniker, in a unique shared experience which will be presented on Sunday.Chairman of Pafos2017 Christos Patsalides said the concert was a great honour for the whole of Cyprus.
