Western Sahara France Reiterates Support For Moroccos Autonomy Plan

Rabat  –  France reiterated its support for the autonomy plan proposed by Morocco as a serious and credible basis for a negotiated solution to the Western Sahara issue, said a joint French-Moroccan statement issued on the occasion of the working visit paid to Morocco by France’s foreign minister Laurent Fabius.“France reiterated its support for efforts made under the UN aegis to reach a political settlement” for the Sahara issue, said the statement.France lauded, on this occasion, “the resumption of the talks process “following clarifications made during the phone call between HM King Mohammed VI and UNSG Ban Ki-moon on Jan. 22, 2015,” it added. The statement underlined that “France backs the Moroccan autonomy plan as a serious and credible basis for a negotiated solution pursuant to the UNSC resolutions.”With MAP read more

Lads I caught some fin big Three friends find giant 7ft tuna

first_img“This last week we have had some massive tides so it’s probably followed the salmon and everything else up the river,” he said.”You do not usually get tuna in British waters but as the water temperature increases, they are getting spotted more and more.”The water temperature in the River Severn is about 17C, which is really warm for this time of year. That means all the fish from the west coast of France, the Bay of Biscay for instance, come around the corner and into the Bristol Channel. A 7ft-long tuna fish has been found dead in the River Severn near Gloucester – hundreds of miles from its normal habitat in warm sea waters.Friends Kevin Brady, Steve Burgess and Alec Foster found the giant fish in the estuary at Minsterworth, Glos, at the weekend when they were paddle boarding.It had been washed up into the side of the river better known for salmon and elvers. Steve spotted it on his jet ski and came to myself and Alec on our paddle boards. He was shouting ‘I’ve found a 7ft fish!’ We didn’t believe him, thinking it must be a cow or somethingKevin Brady “Basically the big fish follow the smaller fish and climate change means they come in further.”Mr Francis said that in years gone by, North East ports were known for excellent tuna fishing and the rich would go there on their yachts to try and catch the species that are now more likely to be found in a can.And although the fish in the Severn looks like a whopper, it probably can’t compete with a 526lb tuna found off the coast of Scarborough.The World Wildlife Fund say if fish were cars, tuna would be the Ferraris of the ocean world as they are sleek, powerful, and made for speed.There are several species but the Atlantic bluefin can reach 10ft in length and weigh as much as 1500 pounds, more than a horse, and can swim up to 43 miles per hour across long distances.”Some tuna are born in the Gulf of Mexico, cross the entire Atlantic Ocean to feed off the coast of Europe, and then swim all the way back to the Gulf to breed,” the WWF says.center_img Mr Brady, who last year became the first person ever to swim the full length of the 220-mile River Severn, showed off his catch of the day on social media.Mr Brady, 33, said: “Steve spotted it on his jet ski and came to myself and Alec on our paddle boards.”He was shouting ‘I’ve found a 7ft fish!’ We didn’t believe him, thinking it must be a cow or something.”Mr Brady added: “It wasn’t until we got right up next to it we realised it was a fish.”Dai Francis, of the Severn and Wye Smokery at Minsterworth, said he was not surprised to hear a tuna had come so far upriver.

Greek Jewish community hails citizenship decision

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram In 2011 Greece recognised the right of Jewish survivors of the World War II Nazi Holocaust to gain back the nationality they had lost if they left the country. In January the Jewish community in Thessaloniki finally got the go-ahead to build a Holocaust museum – partly funded by Germany – to commemorate the over 50,000 members of the Greek Jewish community that lived in the city before the Nazi occupation.On Thursday, a new parliamentary amendment was passed granting relatives of those survivors, many of whom live in Israel the right to apply for Greek citizenship.“This is a moral victory,” and a “fresh step forward in the recognition of the history of the Holocaust and of Greek Jews,” president of the Central Board of Jewish Communities David Saltiel told AFP.Thursday’s vote has since become a political controversy with Greek opposition New Democracy (ND) party abstaining from the the procedure while neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn which happens to be the fourth biggest in parliament, voted against the legislation.last_img read more

Thousands rally in Syntagma Athens for Macedonia

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram According to police reports, more than 140,000 Greeks flooded Syntagma Square and the surrounding streets in central Athens to protest about the mooted FYROM names, while the organisers of yesterday’s rally estimate about 1.5 million people to have attended.The majority of Greek people objects to FYROM being named Macedonia, or even the new name featuring the term ‘Macedonia’ as a compound for fear it would lead to a territorial claim on Greece’s northern Macedonia region.Demonstrators of every age and background gathered and chanted “hands off Macedonia” and “Macedonia is Greece” waving their Greek flags outside parliament. Elefsina toll station reported 94 charter buses passing through to Athens with Afidna recording 189. Many diaspora Greeks from the UK, Canada, the US and Australia also flew to Athens solely to attend the protest and took the first flight out in the morning. Iconic Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis, 92, was also there and took to the stage to address the public and the members of the Greek government. “If a government considers signing on behalf of our country… there is no doubt it must first ask the Greek people,” he said asking for a referendum. “Macedonia was, is and will forever be Greek,” he shouted calling FYROM an “illegitimate state”.Metropolitan of Syros island, Dorotheos was next, followed by constitutionalist George Kasimatis, Mayor of Marousi George Patoulis, Nina Gatzoulis from the Pan-Macedonian Unions and more.The protest was peaceful with one group of unidentified men wearing balaclavas attacked police forces throwing flares about 4pm. The police responded with limited chemical use. Another episode was recorded later with 200 hooded men carrying Greek flags attacking police forces on the corner of Amerikis and Panepistimiou street. There was one arrest.last_img read more

Martha Hart does not support new Owen Hart WWE DVD

first_img Twitter Adam Martin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WrestlingDVDNews.com, which broke the story on Thursday that WWE has started to work on a new documentary about the life and career of the late Owen Hart, was sent a statement by Martha Hart, the widow of Owen, that she does not endorse or support the release from WWE despite the report on Thursday stating otherwise.“My children and I were unaware of this project until May 7, when it was brought to our attention by a friend who had read about it online. Contrary to your report, we do not back or support it in any way, nor has WWE requested our backing or support. From what little we know of the project, it seems to be another attempt to exploit Owen’s memory, and his tragic death, for commercial gain.

Mens Health Preps iPhone Magazine App

first_imgBumgarner leads a centralized digital edition development team at Rodale that aids each brand’s editorial and creative teams in translating print issues to a portable screen. This staff will work directly with Adobe in the continual evolution of the new app as the mobile space expands. Bumgarner says that by working closely with the vendor, Rodale will be able to gauge what audience response is, and build technology around these results. On the heels of Adobe’s Content Viewer debut, Rodale’s Men’s Health brings its content to the iPhone. Though the publication already has a portfolio of one-off apps available for the platform, the latest iPhone app will include the magazine’s monthly offering in its entirety.“The idea of getting the magazine on the iPhone is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time, because our readers are a perfect audience for it: They’re traveling, they’re at the gym. This is a great way for them to dip into the magazine content to reference a workout at the gym, for example. When we learned that Adobe was making this technology available, we wanted to take advantage of it as soon as possible,” says interactive design director Sean Bumgarner.The first version of the iPhone app will be a static PDF, as was Men’s Health when it first arrived on the iPad. An optimized version (which will include live links, video content and HTML feeds) will drop in the first week of August with the publication’s September issue.During its development phases, Bumgarner said readability and usage across different devices was paramount for the new app, “The form has to shape how you present content; even the regular iPad has a much smaller screen size than a magazine page. We had to figure out the economy of the design and how that really translates.” Current iPad subscribers will be able to access the iPhone version, and vice versa. At this point, Rodale does not bundle print and digital subscriptions; the magazine’s digital version of Men’s Health is available for $23.99 annually. “Both the iPad and iPhone apps have the same binary, or the same code. Since they’re equivalent, Apple looks for the device and gives the purchaser the rights to any digital edition,” Bumgarner tells FOLIO:.last_img read more

Omnibus Includes 235M to Upgrade Replace Dilapidated Schools on Bases

first_imgLawmakers included $235 million in the fiscal 2018 omnibus spending bill signed into law last week to construct, renovate or expand elementary and secondary public schools on military installations. The funding represents the latest tranche of funding Congress has allocated since FY 2011 to DOD’s Public Schools on Military Installations program for repairing or replacing schools having the most serious capacity or condition deficiencies. The program is administered by the Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA). A local educational agency or state is required to provide matching funds to receive a DOD grant under the program, according to the measure. … Meanwhile, the omnibus includes $57.8 million for OEA’s various grant programs supporting communities and states addressing BRAC and mission changes, defense industry cutbacks and compatible land use issues. The allocation matches the administration’s FY 2018 budget request and is roughly in line with the agency’s baseline funding over the past decade. … Congress also included language in the $1.3 trillion spending package barring any of the funds from being used “to propose, plan for or execute” a new BRAC round. With lawmakers already prohibiting the Pentagon from launching a round of base closures in the defense authorization bill, the provision is superfluous but not unexpected as it has been included in past appropriations bills.

Nvidia GeForce Now beta has 1 million gamers on waiting list

first_img Nvidia Nvidia’s GeForce Now (GFN), which has been in beta on the PC and Mac, is one of the most eagerly awaited of the cloud-gaming services; moreso than even Google’s Project Stream, because we’ve experienced it firsthand for over a year.  Today, the CEO delivered some interesting updates about the status at his keynote for the company’s Graphics Technology Conference, notably that it currently has 300,000 users and that there are a million more waiting to be accepted into the beta program.If you’re already in the program, take heart: the company also announced its data center strategy, which includes RTX servers. Those are destined to replace the Tesla P40-based systems currently powering GeForce Now, which should deliver better performance — higher frame rates! 4K! — as well as better scalability.It also announced a software developer’s kit for GFN which will enable single sign-on, as well as provide developers with the ability to streamline launchers and installs on the platform. Plus, it’s working on wireless cloud-based VR with HTC and 5G infrastructure.But the company’s expansion plans, via its GeForce Now Alliance partnerships, sounds like more than just growing internationally beyond the 15 data centers currently in North America and western Europe. (The first partners are Softbank and LG Uplus for rollouts in Japan and Korea in 2019.)The way CEO Jensen Huang was talking, it sounded like the company is more interested in enabling and hosting the architecture that will enable other companies to deliver their own, custom GeForce Now-type options. In other words, you’d subscribe via your internet or cell service provider rather than through Nvidia. That would explain why it hasn’t already launched, as well.Just a thought. 13 Photos 5:27 0 Google, your next gaming destination?

Condemnation of Maduro grows after troops block aid

first_imgPeople throw stones at Venezuelan national guard members, at the border, seen from Pacaraima, Brazil 24 February. Photo: ReutersVenezuelan president Nicolas Maduro faced growing regional pressure on Sunday after his troops repelled foreign aid convoys, with the United States threatening new sanctions and Brazil urging allies to join a “liberation effort”.Violent clashes with security forces over the opposition’s US-backed attempt on Saturday to bring aid into the economically devastated country left almost 300 wounded and at least three protesters dead near the Brazilian border.Juan Guaido, recognized by most Western nations as Venezuela’s legitimate leader, urged foreign powers to consider “all options” in ousting Maduro, ahead of a meeting of the regional Lima Group of nations in Bogota on Monday that will be attended by US vice president Mike Pence.Pence is set to announce “concrete steps” and “clear actions” at the meeting to address the crisis, a senior US administration official said on Sunday, declining to provide details. The United States last month imposed crippling sanctions on the OPEC nation’s oil industry, squeezing its top source of foreign revenue.“What happened yesterday is not going to deter us from getting humanitarian aid into Venezuela,” the official said, speaking with reporters on condition of anonymity.Brazil, a diplomatic heavyweight in Latin America which has the region’s largest economy, was for years a vocal ally of Venezuela while it was ruled by the leftist Workers Party. It turned sharply against Venezuela’s socialist president this year when far-right president Jair Bolsonaro took office.“Brazil calls on the international community, especially those countries that have not yet recognized Juan Guaido as interim president, to join in the liberation effort of Venezuela,” the Brazilian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.Colombia, which has received around half the estimated 3.4 million migrants fleeing Venezuela’s hyperinflationary economic meltdown, has also stepped up its criticism of Maduro since swinging to the right last year.President Ivan Duque in a tweet denounced Saturday’s “barbarity”, saying Monday’s summit would discuss “how to tighten the diplomatic siege of the dictatorship in Venezuela.”Maduro, who retains the backing of China and Russia, which both have major energy sector investments in Venezuela, says the opposition’s aid efforts are part of a US-orchestrated coup.His information minister, Jorge Rodriguez, during a Sunday news conference gloated about the opposition’s failure to bring in aid and called Guaido “a puppet and a used condom.”Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said on Sunday that Venezuela, the Caribbean island’s top ally, was the victim of US imperialist attempts to restore neoliberalism in Latin America.Smoldering Border AreasTrucks laden with US food and medicine on the Colombian border repeatedly attempted to push past lines of troops on Saturday, but were met with tear gas and rubber bullets. Two of the aid trucks went up in flames, which the opposition blamed on security forces and the government on “drugged-up protesters.”The opposition had hoped troops would balk at turning back supplies so desperately needed by a population increasingly suffering malnutrition and diseases.Winning over the military is key to their plans to topple Maduro, who they argue won re-election in a fraudulent vote, and hold new presidential elections.Though some 60 members of security forces defected into Colombia on Saturday, according to that country’s authorities, the National Guard at the frontier crossings held firm. Two additional members of Venezuela’s National Guard defected to Brazil late on Saturday, a Brazilian army colonel said on Sunday.The Brazilian border state of Roraima said the number of Venezuelans being treated for gunshot wounds rose to 18 from five in the past 24 hours; all 18 were in serious condition. That was the result of constant gunbattles, which included armed men without uniforms, throughout Saturday in the Venezuelan town of Santa Elena, near the border.The Venezuelan Observatory of Violence, a local crime monitoring group, said it had confirmed three deaths on Saturday, all in Santa Elena, and at least 295 injured across the country.In the Venezuelan of Urena on the border with Colombia, streets were still strewn with debris on Sunday, including the charred remains of a bus that had been set ablaze by protesters.During a visit to a border bridge to survey the damage, Duque told reporters the aid would remain in storage.“We need everything they were going to bring over,” said Auriner Blanco, 38, a street vendor who said he needed an operation for which supplies were lacking in Venezuela. “Today, there is still tension, I went onto the street and saw all the destruction.”Military Invasion?UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres appealed on Sunday for “violence to be avoided at any cost” and said everyone should lower tensions and pursue efforts to avoid further escalation, according to his spokesman.But US senator Marco Rubio, an influential voice on Venezuela policy in Washington, said the violence on Saturday had “opened the door to various potential multilateral actions not on the table just 24 hours ago”.Hours later he tweeted a mug shot of former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega, who was captured by US forces in 1990 after an invasion.President Donald Trump has in the past said military intervention in Venezuela was “an option,” though Guaido made no reference to it on Saturday.The 35-year old, who defied a government travel ban to travel to Colombia to oversee the aid deployment, will attend the Lima Group summit on Monday and hold talks with various members of the European Union before returning to Venezuela, opposition lawmaker Miguel Pizarro said on Sunday.“The plan is not a president in exile,” he said.last_img read more

Best of Last Week – Neutrino oscillations photo of the moon and

first_img(Phys.org)—It was another good week for physics as one researcher, Roman Schnabel, a professor at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, unveiled a plan for entangling massive objects—specifically two 0.1 kg mass mirrors—if the idea can be carried out in an experiment, it would represent a huge leap forward in entangling objects. Also, a team with the University of California cooled the world’s quietest gas to allow them to hear faint quantum effects—at just a billionth of a degree above absolute zero it had the lowest entropy ever recorded. Citation: Best of Last Week – Neutrino oscillations, photo of the moon and Earth and neuro impact of body posture during sleep (2015, August 10) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2015-08-week-neutrino-oscillations-photo-moon.html Explore further © 2015 Phys.org This document is subject to copyright.

Also, another group of four researchers from the U.K., Singapore, Australia and Italy theorized that faster battery charging may be had by using a quantum battery—via energy stored as qubit quantum states.There was important space news as well, as one team of astronomers studying data from the Kepler Observatory discovered a tenth transiting “Tatooine”—where a planet orbits two stars. Also, a team of Hungarian and US researchers announced that they had found the largest feature in the universe—a ring of galaxies 5 billion light years across. And from a million miles away, a NASA camera showed the moon crossing the face of Earth—which showed its lighted “dark” side.In other news, a team of researchers working in Singapore asked, can genes make us liberal or conservative? They conducted a study that included surveying 1,771 university students and found evidence that suggested genetics might play a role in our political leanings—more specifically, they found a gene variant that appeared to be linked to contributing to liberal versus conservative views. And a King’s college study offered the first genetic analysis of people with extremely high intelligence—they found a genetic difference in the top 0.03 per cent of intelligent people.And finally, if you have been worrying about developing a neurological disease, there may be something you can do to reduce your chances—sleep on your side. A team of researchers with Stony Brook University found evidence that suggests physical positioning during slumber can impact the body’s ability to remove unneeded material in the brain. It was all part of a study looking into the question: could body posture during sleep affect how your brain clears waste? Physicist unveils plan for entangling massive objects Illustration of the Michelson interferometer setup for the generation of an EPR-entangled motion of two massive mirrors that are suspended as pendula. If the mirrors are well isolated from the environment, radiation pressure leads to entanglement between the motion of the mirror and the field quadratures of the reflected light field in each arm. Superimposing the two light fields and balanced homodyne detection at the two output ports (1, 2) enables entanglement swapping that continuously generates an EPR-entangled motion of the mirrors. Residual coupling to the environment continuously destroys the entanglement, such that the entanglement will be present continuously but only over some finite short-time interval. To achieve the required state purity at nonzero temperatures, conditional states of motion need to be defined. Credit: Phys. Rev. A 92, 012126 – Published 28 July 2015.
