Mohand Laenser Benkiranes Government Formation Logic Will Lead to Political Crisis

Rabat – Popular Movement (MP) Secretary-General Mohand Laenser said on Thursday that Head of Government Abdelilah Benkirane’s logic for the government formation process “cannot lead to anything but a political crisis because it ignores the principles of symmetry, harmony and trust that should be the cornerstone of any effective and efficient alliance.”Laenser noted that instead of opting for a cabinet reshuffle after winning the October 7th elections, the Justice and Development Party’s (PJD) Benkirane has chosen a full-scale course adjustment – delaying the completion of the formation process.“Benkirane’s preference for the parties of the Kutla – the trusted Istiqlal Party and the Party of Progress and Socialism – does not cancel the incorporation of other parties in the government coalition in order to complete a parliamentary majority,” the MP leader said. “This is making the task of forming a government harder and risks a political crisis.” Morocco still is not in political crisis mode, Laenser said, while encouraging the PJD leader to pursue relationships with the remainder of the political parties with seats in the new legislature.The two Kutla parties have declared their support for Benkirane’s coalition so far, but negotiations with the National Rally of Independents (RNI), led by Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries Aziz Akhannouch, and the Socialist Union of Popular Forces (USFP) are still ongoing.The government coalition’s seat count now stands at 183 seats – 15 seats shy of a majority. An alliance with either the RNI (37 seats) or the USFP (20 seats) would give the PJD the 198 seats it needs to push its legislative agenda. read more

Congress MPs want 13A in Lanka

The MPs also said that Sri Lanka should take urgent steps for implementation of LLRC recommendations with clear time bound programme.“The Sri Lanka government should send message to the world that normalcy is restored by replacing Army by Police,” the MPs said. The MPs also suggested that Indian universities can have an understanding with institutions in these areas for higher studies. (PTI) They also said that displaced Tamil civilians and refugees in India should be enabled to get back their houses and lands left in Sri Lanka by sending a team of survey and settlement officials from India and identifying the properties and pushing for claim from the concerned refugees.“Fertile lands and fishermen villages of the north and east were taken away by the Military as ‘Security Zone.’ This should be handed over to owners and allow them to economically develop the country,” the letter said.The MPs also recommended establishment of centres for rehabilitation of widows, mentally challenged children and differently-abled persons and children. “The political empowerment through implementation of 13th Amendment of the Constitution of Sri Lanka made on Rajiv Gandhi’s effort, by holding talks with TNA and other Tamil political parties are in urgency to create the confidence of the Tamils to return to motherland,” they said in the letter. The 13th Amendment of the Sri Lankan Constitution envisages devolution of powers to Tamil-dominated northern and eastern provinces. “India’s human resources department should send teachers for English, Science and Mathematics for schools with the cooperation of Tamil Nadu government as Tamil knowing teachers are needed,” they said. Rajya Sabha member EM Sudarshana Natchiappan, Lok Sabha members M Krishnasamy, NSV Chithan and Manicka Tagore made these demands in a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after they returned last week. Congress MPs, who were part of the delegation that visited Sri Lanka recently, have demanded India’s intervention in ensuring political empowerment of minority Tamils by implementing the historic 13th Amendment, holding talks with various political parties there.Four Congress MPs from Tamil Nadu also asked India to demand urgent steps from Sri Lanka to implement recommendations of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) with a “clear time-bound programme”. read more

Moves to improve living standards in the north

The projects are also to be implemented for the families who are residing in more than six islands around the northern Jaffna peninsula, Karunathilaka added. The projects include upgrading the transport system in these areas for families to travel from the islands to the mainland, Karunathilaka said. The government said it will launch special projects in war-ravaged north to improve living conditions of the families residing there.Co-Cabinet Spokesperson and Media Minister Gayantha Karunathilaka told a media briefing that on a proposal submitted to the cabinet by Minister of Rehabilitation and Resettlement, D.M. Swaminathan, the government had approved implementation of ten projects to upgrade the living status of these communities. In June, government officials in the Northern Province, called for private investments in many key areas including construction and healthcare, in order to improve the conditions in the former war areas. (Courtesy Xinhua) Sri Lanka’s north was one of the worst affected in a 30-year civil war between government troops and Tamil Tiger rebels and was almost cut off for most duration of the war from the rest of the country.After the end of the conflict in May 2009 with the defeat of the Tigers, thousands of people were left displaced with the north left crumbled. read more

Key suspect in Lasanthas killing given diplomatic post by Gota

Fonseka in his testimony to the police has said security and intelligence operations in Colombo were carried out by Rajapaksa and national Intelligence Chief Kapila Hendawithrana, who is also accused of leading a killer squad, according to a report filed in the Mount Lavinia courts last month.However, the latest evidence showed that Gotabhaya Rajapaksa nominated army intelligence operative major Bandara Bulathwatte as an “intelligence officer” with the rank of second secretary at the Sri Lankan embassy in Bangkok, just a week before the January 2010 presidential elections. The appointment of major Bulathwatte was made in the heat of a bruising presidential election campaign. Bulathwatte’s bio data was obtained from army commander Jagath Jayasuriya. Transfer of public servants cannot be carried out when an election has been called unless with the concurrence of the Elections Commissioner or under urgent national security considerations, but such a requirement was not mentioned in appointing Bulathwatte to Thailand a week before the polls.However, after President Mahinda Rajapaksa was re-elected and Fonseka was arrested, defence secretary Rajapaksa changes his mind and tells the Foreign Secretary to defer Bulathwatte’s posting due to national security considerations.“Request please to make necessary arrangements to postpone the scheduled departure of the above officer (Major B.W.D.M.R.P.S.S.B.D Bulathwatte) until further notice as his presence in Colombo is of importance with regard to matters pertaining to national security,” said the then chief of National Intelligence Kapila Hendawitharana in a letter to the Foreign Secretary. This letter is sent on February 25, almost a month after the election is won by President Mahinda Rajapaksa. The chief suspect in Lasantha Wickrematunga’s assassination was given a diplomatic post by the then defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa but it was withdrawn soon after Mahinda Rajapaksa won the January 2010 election, fresh evidence has revealed, according to the Economy News website.Rajapaksa has denied any involvement in the January 2009 assassination of Sunday Leader editor Wickrematunga and a string of other attacks against dissident journalists, but new evidence shows he nominated the main suspect as an intelligence officer at the Sri Lanka embassy in Thailand. President Rajapaksa was challenged at the polls by his army chief Fonseka who ended up in jail after a controversial court martial and high court proceedings against him.In a hastily prepared letter, Rajapaksa asked the Foreign Secretary to appoint Bulathwatte as an intelligence officer after recalling another officer holding the rank of second secretary in Bangkok. It was done in such haste, even a bio data of Bulathwatte was not attached, although it was requirement for him to get his visa and have the appointment regularised by the foreign ministry.This letter dated January 18, 2010 was issued in Rajapaksa’s name and it was authenticated as genuine by the then additional secretary to the defence ministry, Ravi Arunthavanathan. Exactly two weeks after asking the Foreign secretary to hold Bulathwatte’s appointment, Hendawitharana gives the go ahead to send Bulathwatte to Thailand. Hendawitharana then makes a U-turn five days later asking the foreign secretary to further postpone the appointment.This time, the reason for the postponement is: “The presence of the officer is urgently required for a very important matter pertaining to the national security.”Technical evidence and telephone records have placed Bulathwatte at the location where Lasantha was killed as well as in the places where other journalists were attacked. His six-member gang is now in remand custody and several of them have been identified by those who survived attacks.The vehicle used in some of the attacks as well as Lasantha’s killing has been recovered from the home of a woman linked to Bulathwatte, who is now in remand custody.Soon after the former defence secretary’s name was mentioned in a court document last month, he denied any involvement and left the island and is said to be in Singapore following a study course.The former military intelligence chief, Hendawitharana, has already been questioned by police in connection with Lasantha’s killing, but investigators said several other officers are due to be questioned and high profile arrests are imminent.Two other suspects in the attacks against Lasantha and several others, Warrant Officers R. L. Rajapaksha and I. P. A. Udalagama, had been given clerical jobs at the Sri Lankan embassy in Germany. The then powerful defence secretary has denied allegations by his army commander and erstwhile friend Sarath Fonseka that he led a killer squad comprising handpicked army commandos attached to a secret killer gang. Rajapaksa has countered the allegation saying that if there were any secret killer squads involving army personnel, Fonseka as the then commander should take responsibility. read more

Facebook ramps up its response to violent videos

Facebook ramps up its response to violent videos by Barbara Ortutay, The Associated Press Posted May 3, 2017 8:38 am MDT Last Updated May 3, 2017 at 5:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this Monday, June 4, 2012, file photo, a girl looks at Facebook on her computer in Palo Alto, Calif. In a blog post Wednesday, May 3, 2017, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the company will hire another 3,000 people to review videos of crime and suicides following murders shown live. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma, File) NEW YORK, N.Y. – Facebook is stepping up its efforts to keep inappropriate and often violent material — including recent high-profile videos of murders and suicides, hate speech and extremist propaganda — off of its site.On Wednesday, the world’s biggest social network said it plans to hire 3,000 more people to review videos and other posts after getting criticized for not responding quickly enough to murders shown on its service.The hires over the next year will be on top of the 4,500 people Facebook already tasks with identifying criminal and other questionable material for removal. CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote Wednesday that the company is “working to make these videos easier to report so we can take the right action sooner — whether that’s responding quickly when someone needs help or taking a post down.”Facebook, which had 18,770 employees at the end of March, would not say if the new hires would be contractors or full-time workers. David Fischer, the head of Facebook’s advertising business, said in an interview that the detection and removal of hate speech and content that promotes violence or terrorism is an “ongoing priority” for the company, and the community operations teams are a “continued investment.”Videos and posts that glorify violence are against Facebook’s rules, but Facebook has drawn criticism for responding slowly to such items, including video of a slaying in Cleveland and the live-streamed killing of a baby in Thailand. The Thailand video was up for 24 hours before it was removed.In most cases, such material gets reviewed for possible removal only if users complain. News reports and posts that condemn violence are allowed. This makes for a tricky balancing act for the company. Facebook does not want to act as a censor, as videos of violence, such as those documenting police brutality or the horrors of war, can serve an important purpose.LIVE STREAM CHALLENGESPolicing live video streams is especially difficult, as viewers don’t know what will happen. This rawness is part of their appeal.While the negative videos make headlines, they are just a tiny fraction of what users post every day. The good? Families documenting a toddler’s first steps for faraway relatives, journalists documenting news events, musicians performing for their fans and people raising money for charities.“We don’t want to get rid of the positive aspects and benefits of live streaming,” said Benjamin Burroughs, a professor of emerging media at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas.Burroughs said that Facebook clearly knew live streams would help the company make money, as they keep users on Facebook longer, making advertisers happy. If Facebook hadn’t also considered the possibility that live streams of crime or violence would inevitably appear alongside the positive stuff, “they weren’t doing a good enough job researching implications for societal harm,” Burroughs said.EARNINGS RESULTSFacebook also reported stronger-than-expected quarterly results on Wednesday, as has been its custom. The company earned $3.06 billion, or $1.04 per share, in the January-March period. That’s up from 76 per cent from $1.74 billion, or 60 cents per share, a year earlier. Analysts polled by FactSet were expecting earnings of 87 cents per share.Revenue grew 49 per cent to $8.03 billion from $5.38 billion. Analysts expected $7.83 billion.Facebook had 1.94 billion monthly active users as of the end of March, up 17 per cent from a year earlier. Daily active users were 1.28 billion, on average, for the month of March.FUNHOUSE MIRROR?With a quarter of the world’s population on it, Facebook can serve as a mirror for humanity, amplifying both the good and the bad — the local fundraiser for a needy family and the murder-suicide in a faraway corner of the planet. But lately, it has gotten outsized attention for its role in the latter, whether that means allowing the spread of false news and government propaganda or videos of horrific crimes.Videos livestreaming murder or depicting kidnapping and torture have made international headlines even when the crimes themselves wouldn’t have, simply because they were on Facebook, visible to people who wouldn’t have seen them otherwise.As the company introduces even more new features, it will continue to grapple with the reality that they will not always be used for positive or even mundane purposes. From his interviews and Facebook posts, it appears that Zuckerberg is at least aware of this, even if his company doesn’t always respond as quickly as outsiders would like.“It’s heartbreaking, and I’ve been reflecting on how we can do better for our community,” Zuckerberg wrote on Wednesday about the recent videos.It’s a learning curve for Facebook. In November, for example, Zuckerberg called the idea that false news on Facebook influenced the U.S. election “crazy.” A month later, the company introduced a slew of initiatives aimed at combating false news and supporting journalism. And just last week, it acknowledged that governments or others are using its social network to influence political sentiment in ways that could affect national elections.WHAT TO DOZuckerberg said Facebook workers review “millions of reports” every week. In addition to removing videos of crime or getting help for someone who might hurt themselves, he said, the company’s bulked-up reviewing force will “also help us get better at removing things we don’t allow on Facebook like hate speech and child exploitation.”Wednesday’s announcement is a clear sign that Facebook continues to need human reviewers to monitor content, even as it tries to outsource some of the work to software due in part to its sheer size and the volume of stuff people post.It’s not all up to Facebook, though. Burroughs said users themselves need to decide whether they want to look at violent videos posted on Facebook or to circulate them, for example. And he urged news organizations to consider whether each Facebook live-streamed murder is a story.“We have to be careful that it doesn’t become a kind of voyeurism,” he said. read more

De lamiante découverte sous une rame du RER B

first_imgDe l’amiante découverte sous une rame du RER BDe la poussière d’amiante a été découverte sous une rame du RER B. Une rame pourtant récemment rénovée. Par mesure de précaution, la RATP a lancé une inspection de plusieurs autres rames, entraînant des perturbations et l’inquiétude de ses employés.De la poussière d’amiante a été découverte lors d’un examen précédent la remise en service d’une rame du RER B, qui avait été récemment rénovée. Comme le rapporte le site de Libération, la RATP a décidé d’inspecter plusieurs rames elles aussi rénovées il y a peu. Ainsi, dix sept analyses sont actuellement en cours, a indiqué le réseau de transports en commun parisien. Inquiets, les employés de la RATP ont menacé d’exercer leur droit de retrait, mais pour l’heure, aucun arrêt de travail n’a été annoncé. “Ça fait plus de 40 ans qu’on dénonce les méfaits de l’amiante : il est regrettable de constater encore sa présence sur des matériels en 2011”, a souligné Jacques Eliez, secrétaire général CGT-RATP, cité par LCI. “On a plein de suppositions. Peut-être que l’amiante se trouvait sur certaines parties de la rame qui ont été poncées, et qui ont dégagé de la poussière”, explique de son côté Joël Joseph, un conducteur du RER B. “La direction nous assure que les trains sont désamiantés, mais on constate que ce n’est pas le cas” s’insurge-t-il.Si les conducteurs de la RATP sont si inquiets, c’est parce que l’amiante est une substance dangereuse lorsqu’elle est inhalée. La fine poussière peut s’infiltrer profondément dans les poumons et provoquer des cancer ou des asbestoses, de graves affections des poumons.Le 16 septembre 2011 à 15:57 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Le Kiosque dApple fait du bien aux ventes de magazines

first_imgLe Kiosque d’Apple fait du bien aux ventes de magazinesLes relations entre Apple et la presse ont toujours été conflictuelles. Le modèle économique proposé par la Pomme est au centre des débats depuis deux ans mais la vente de magazines digitaux commence enfin à décoller.Le milieu de la presse n’a jamais été l’ami d’Apple. Quand la marque a présenté l’iPad en janvier 2010, elle leur a promis un nouvel élan pour leur activité et une plateforme à visibilité maximale. Mais elle a oublié de leur préciser les conditions d’utilisation, avec 30% de commission sur l’abonnement si il est souscrit sur l’App Store. Les premiers chiffres de ventes avaient affaibli Apple, le succès n’étant pas au rendez-vous mais depuis l’entreprise a révisé sa copie : elle propose les abonnements depuis une application dédiée appelée Kiosque et les chiffres de vente ont clairement rebondi.À lire aussiiPhone 6 : un smartphone fragile qui se plierait en restant dans une poche ?Selon des chiffres relayés par le site Numerama, l’arrivée du Kiosque a redonné le sourire à nombre de titres de presse, dont certains ont vu leurs ventes augmenter de 750%. Concernant les abonnements, le nerf de la guerre en matière de publication journalistique, eux aussi ont subi une hausse sensible depuis octobre. Un titre en particulier, le Popular Science Magazine, vient de donner des statistiques détaillées sur son nombre de lecteurs. Staffan Ekholm, le PDG du magazine, se félicite de ces ventes et constate lui aussi l’engouement créé autour de son titre après son arrivée sur le Kiosque.En France, les éditeurs de presse freinent des quatre fers, trouvant la politique d’Apple trop restrictive. Les conditions d’utilisation sont jugées trop fermées et les commissions trop importantes. Tous les acteurs importants de l’information ont fait bloc mais récemment, le titre Le Point a fait son apparition sur le Kiosque. Apple utilise souvent cette politique du “diviser pour mieux régner” et fait valoir ses plus de 85% de part de marché pour contraindre les éditeurs à signer.

Xbox One S in Storm Grey or Military Green will include Battlefield

first_imgFall is nearly here which means that we’re about to see a slew of new console bundles from both Sony and Microsoft. Today, Microsoft announced several Xbox One S bundles that are themed around EA’s upcoming Battlefield 1. Given how Microsoft has an exclusivity deal (of sorts) for the game, this announcement isn’t much of a surprise.The bundles come in three varieties. The first of them features a standard 500GB Xbox One S console that comes with a digital copy of Battlefield 1 for $300. The next bundle is exactly like the previous one, except that the system comes in “Storm Grey.” Interestingly enough, this bundle, which will only be available in Microsoft stores and Walmart, comes out on November 1, a full week after the game launches on October 21.Those who want the best bundle available will want to pick up the 1TB “Military Green” variant. This one comes with the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition of Battlefield 1. This version of the game comes with several pieces of DLC, including the Hellfighter Pack, the Red Baron Pack, the Lawrence of Arabia pack, and a new skin for Behemoth vehicles. This bundle will set folks back $350 and goes on sale on October 18. This is definitely the bundle to get for those who want to play several days before the official release.All of these bundles come with a free month of EA Access. Those with EA Access, even if they do not have one of these bundles, will be able to play Battlefield 1 on October 18.Battlefield 1 is set to be one of the biggest games of the holiday season, so these bundles should help Microsoft compete with Sony who is set to launch its PlayStation 4 Pro on November 10. It should be noted that bundles purchased from GameStop stores will come with physical copies of the game. Most bundles come with digital codes, so this could be a big incentive for people to buy the system.last_img read more

They visited with Brandon Flowers yesterday.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 27, 2017Williams, 34, spent the last two seasons with the Cleveland Browns after eight years in Green Bay. In 2016, Williams started seven games for the Browns and had 36 tackles, five passes defensed and one interception. The former Pro Bowler has 30 career interceptions, which ranks seventh among active players, tied with Richard Sherman, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Brent Grimes.Arizona head coach Bruce Arians said earlier this week the Cardinals would continue to be aggressive in bringing in talent for visits and possible signings.“You’re going to see some guys coming in here real fast to build this roster just in case,” he said. “Either young guys haven’t performed well enough and there are so many good veterans on the street, that you want to have guys ready to go.”Justin Bethel and Brandon Williams are competing for the starting cornerback spot opposite perennial Pro Bowler Patrick Peterson, but there are depth concerns. Those fears haven’t been helped by two corners — Elie Bouka and Jumal Rolle — both missing up to two weeks with injuries. The Arizona Cardinals are firmly entrenched in training camp as they prepare for next week’s preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio.But the team’s front office isn’t completely satisfied.After the Cardinals met with free agent cornerback Brandon Flowers Wednesday, they’re bringing in another Thursday with the possibility of adding depth to the position.

Go back to the enewsletter The Lodge at Kinloch

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletter >The Lodge at Kinloch, scheduled to open in October 2015, will offer new heights of golfing escape complementing an onsite 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course.“Having just played Kinloch for the first time I can honestly say this is the number one golf course in New Zealand. For those unable to play the great links courses of Scotland, Kinloch compares with the best of them. A true Links experience with Jack Nicklaus at his best,” said professional golfer Sir Bob Charles.Created by Treetops Lodge & Estate, The Lodge at Kinloch will feature one-bedroom junior suites and luxurious one- and two- bedroom villas in an exclusive, landscaped setting with views over the course to Lake Taupo, the scenic hub of New Zealand’s North Island. The villas were designed by Andrew Patterson, while interiors are the work of NZ’s design doyenne, Virginia Fisher.“My brief for the main lodge was to emulate a version of the Kinloch region’s namesake Scottish castle, but with a truly modern 21st-century feel. My vision was a baronial feel of lush textures – velvet, fox fur, brass and copper but upon modern calm of whitewash, light and airy. The Bar which harks back to a time of leather and rock surfaces, cowhide, goat fur and burnt wood flooring is masculine and intense. For private dinners or meetings, The Den is regal – soft and warm with silver and golds, slate floors and lush New Zealand-designed wool rugs. In contrast, a short stroll from the lodge are the luxury villas which are ‘quiet’ in design and harmonise with the magnificent natural setting of this 18-hole lakeside links course,” said Virginia Fisher.A  restaurant using produce reared from the private 2000ha owners’ estate adheres to the ‘Estate to Plate’ organic philosophy where possible. An onsite spa specialising in sporting therapeutic and organic wellness treatments, featuring an infinity pool, a gym and tennis courts is also available to guests.Go back to the e-newsletter >last_img read more
