A ModernDay Fatima alFihriya The Woman Who Founded Oujdas ENCG

Rabat- Following in the steps of Fatima al-Fihriya, who founded the world’s oldest still-operating university in 859 A.D., Fatima al-Madrassi volunteered to found the ENCG in 2003.ENCG is a subsidiary of Mohamed Premier University in Oujda.In a Facebook post on November 20, the secretary of state for higher education and scientific research, Khalid Samadi, wrote that he was surprised to find out about ENCG’s female founder and the funds on which she established the school while on a visit there.  Samadi did not state how much she had to start Oujda’s ENCG, but he noted the similarities between the two “Fatimas of Morocco” and the significance of Madrassi’s role as a philanthropist.Madrassi is a shy woman who does not like the spotlight, Samadi said and expressed a desire to meet her.  Read Also: Muslim Congresswoman to Work to Allow Hijab in the U.S CongressFatima al-Madrassi with a student at a graduation ceremony at ENCGSamadi said that Madrassi considers all the ENCG students as her own children.Like Fatima al-Fihriya, the daughter of a wealthy merchant whose family came from Kairouan in Tunisia, Fatima al-Madrassi is a 21st-century founder of a scholarly institution.The 1,159-year-old University of Al Quaraouiyine, which takes its name from Kairouan, is world’s oldest existing and still-operating higher educational institution, according to UNESCO and Guinness World Records. Al Quaraouiyine has one of the world’s oldest libraries with over 30,000 books and manuscripts, including a 9th-century Qur’an and one of the earliest collections of hadiths, the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad with accounts of his daily practice.Al Quaraouiyine Library also made it onto Time’s first annual list of the world’s greatest places in August 2018. read more

CVS announces further expansion into health care services

CVS Health is pushing deeper into health services with plans to add dietitians, medical equipment and space for the occasional yoga class to 1,500 stores.The drugstore chain that quit selling tobacco several years ago said Tuesday it will expand a store model that it started testing recently. Its HealthHub stores will have around twice as much space devoted to health care as other locations and will aim to help people with chronic conditions such as diabetes.The expansion comes as the health care system turns its focus toward keeping patients healthy instead of waiting to treat them once they become sick. Insurers and other payers have started covering things like visits with dietitians more with the hope that this care keeps patients out of expensive hospitals.Tom Murphy, The Associated Press read more

Rotary International crucial ally in advancing UNs goals – Ban Kimoon

5 November 2007Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has hailed members of Rotary International as allies in advancing the work of the United Nations through their global efforts in support of initiatives for health, literacy and poverty eradication. “You have helped people understand what the UN is, what it does, and what it can do,” Mr. Ban told those gathered for the Rotary International Day programme held at UN Headquarters in New York on 3 November. “Ever since the United Nations was founded, you have been a wonderful partner to our organization.” In a message delivered by Deputy Chef de Cabinet Kim Won-soo, the Secretary-General noted that Rotarians have been the UN’s “chief ally” in the mission to eradicate polio worldwide, helping to immunize almost two billion children around the world against the highly infectious, often paralyzing and sometimes fatal disease.Rotary International has also worked with the UN to spread literacy and eradicate poverty, as well as sought to spread peace through its exchange programmes.In those and other ways, Mr. Ban said Rotarians have advanced the work to reach the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – the set of ambitious targets the world has set itself for slashing poverty, hunger, disease, illiteracy and other social ills by 2015.He added that in his own native Republic of Korea, the Secretary-General has seen the remarkable work Rotary International has done in supporting the country for the past 80 years. read more

Technology can help shave costs for local governments Ban says

Many countries, he said in a video message for the inaugural General Assembly of the World e-Governments Organization of Cities and Local Governments, are facing severe fiscal constraints, experiencing high unemployment and are being forced to cut back on social services.New uses of ICT, Mr. Ban told the event under way in Seoul, Republic of Korea, “can help governments become more efficient and effective; more transparent and more accountable.”More than 50 cities have signed on to the organization, which aims to disseminate knowledge of e-governments worldwide and bridge the digital divide.“Together, you can learn from one another,” the Secretary-General said. “You can find out more about the technology that best fits your needs. And in the process, you can empower citizens.”Technology use at the city and regional levels can enhance civic participation, boost trust in government services and strengthen democracy, he stressed. 7 September 2010As the ramifications of the global economic crisis continue to reverberate worldwide, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today highlighted the cost-cutting potential of new uses of information and communication technology (ICT) for local governments. read more

Motor industry goes green

The UK motor industry is ready to meet the demand for cleaner technology and low carbon vehicles. That is the message behind today’s high level seminar organised by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders at Forbes House, London. Key figures from industry and government will attend a briefing by SMMT, HM Treasury, the Department for Transport and the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership on the reduction of CO2 emissions from passenger cars and commercial vehicles. They will also be given the opportunity to view the latest technology available in the drive to lower road transport emissions.With the launch of the government’s Ultra Low Carbon Vehicle Challenge last week and ACEA’s target for average new car emissions getting ever closer, the development of cleaner technology is becoming increasingly important. Today’s display of more than 12 low emission vehicles will show what the industry has done and where they’re heading in the future.SMMT’s second annual report on new car registrations by CO2 performance shows:New car average CO2 emissions fell to 174.2 g/CO2 per km in 2002, 8.2 per cent down on the 1997 baseline and 1.9 per cent below the 2001 average.The rise of the supermini in the UK over recent years has helped to lower average CO2 emissions through the wider appeal of smaller cars.Diesel fuelled cars have been a significant influence on the reduction in average CO2 emissions. Diesel models took a record 23.5 per cent share of the UK market in 2002, with demand up 38 per cent.Commenting on the industry’s work towards cleaner technology, SMMT chief executive, Christopher Macgowan said, ‘The industry is making tremendous progress in its efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and is committed to improving the environmental performance of its products. The industry’s task is to deliver vehicles that meet a package of consumer expectations, including environmental and safety considerations. To be commercially viable we must also meet consumer expectations in terms of comfort, utility, cost and design.‘SMMT is encouraged by the formation of the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership and by government efforts to deliver a more structured and co-ordinated approach to developing, demonstrating and promoting new vehicle technologies. To be successful in the long term, government must deliver a more coherent and stable framework of vehicle and fuel taxes and incentives. This should be based on objective performance criteria and be available to all qualifying technology packages promoting competition between manufacturers,’ he continued.Notes to Editor:In 1997, diesels accounted for 16.2 per cent of the UK market. In 1998 this figure dipped to 15.3 per cent, in 1999 it was 13.8 per cent, 14.1 per cent in 2000, 17.8 per cent in 2001 and 23.5 per cent in 2002. Diesel penetration is expected to reach 29 per cent of overall sales in 2003 and 31 per cent in 2004.In 1997, Superminis accounted for 26.5 per cent of the UK market. In 1998 this figure dipped to 25.3 per cent before rising annually to 2002. In 1999 it was 27.0 per cent, 31 per cent in 2000, 31.1 per cent in 2001 and 32.4 per cent in 2002.DownloadClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

Mens soccer plays to scoreless draw with Wright State

Despite being forced to play a man down after junior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov was sent off for a handball outside the penalty box in the 70th minute, the Ohio State men’s soccer team ended up playing to a scoreless tie in double overtime against Wright State.Ivanov was forced to charge a Wright State forward as he progressed down the right side of the field. When the attacker shot the ball, Ivanov jumped in front of the ball and hit the ball with his hand, while outside the penalty box.Junior goalkeeper Andrian McAdams, a transfer from Akron, was subbed in when Ivanov was forced to the bench.McAdams said he was prepared to come on if he was needed.“I was happy to go in,” McAdams said. “I was really excited most of all and happy we (could) keep the shutout.”Ohio State junior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov kicks the ball in a game against Wright State Sept. 17 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU and WSU tied, 0-0 in double overtimeThe Buckeyes started slow, allowing the Raiders to go on the attack early. As the game progressed each team had their fair amount of opportunities. Freshman midfielder Christian Soldat was heavily involved in the attack, firing two shots on the night but was unable to find the back of the net.“Sometimes things just don’t go your way,” Soldat said. “I just got (to) focus a little harder and put one in.”As the game went into overtime, OSU continued to battle on the defensive side. But the attack slowly diminished as the Buckeyes were only able to record one shot throughout the overtime periods.Wright State racked up 18 fouls compared to OSU’s eight. In addition WSU sophomore forward Brett Elder and junior midfielder Chris DuPont each received a yellow card for arguing with officials.Coach John Bluem was not surprised by the physical play of the Raiders.“I don’t want to say it was characteristic of their team, but we weren’t surprised there were a lot of fouls in the game,” Bluem said.Bluem was disappointed in the Buckeye’s performance.“We weren’t at our best,” Bluem said. “The one thing I will give our team credit for is they come to battle and they keep fighting.”Due to his red card, Ivanov will have to miss OSU’s next match.OSU (2-2-2) continues its streak of in-state matchups as the Dayton Flyers come to town Friday at 7:30 p.m. read more

Gold discoveries falling behind production

first_imgMEG expects an average increase in mined gold production of about 3% annually from 2006 to 2010. This level of projected increase may be inflated further if current high gold prices prevail, and actual changes will of course depend on longer-term gold market factors. Historically, only about half of feasibility-stage projects reach production within ten years; we have therefore included 50% of the capacity of those projects. The net increase for the period is about 10 Moz of new capacity.Strategies for Gold Reserves Replacement addresses key issues for growth strategies for the goldmining industry through the compilation of information on all aspects of the supply side of gold. The information presented in the sections of the study?Gold Production Pipeline, Acquisitions Activity, Exploration Spending, Major Discoveries, and Company Profiles?provides parameters for measuring the relative costs of various growth strategies for individual gold producing companies and the industry as a whole. The study is available in print copy and on the Internet from Metals Economics Group, Nova Scotia, Canada. Contact sales@metalseconomics.com, or further information is available at www.metalseconomics.com Metals Economics Group’s (MEG) new in-depth study—Strategies for Gold Reserves Replacement: The Costs of Finding and Acquiring Gold—concludes that the world’s largest gold producers have on average replaced 200% of their total production over the past 11 years at an average cost of $38/oz through a combination of acquisition and exploration. From 1995 to 2004, these 20 gold producers also increased their combined annual gold production by almost 70%, from about 25 Moz annually to 43 Moz, and still maintained a remaining production life of 14 years in reserves at 2005 production rates, with additional resources available.However, while the top 20 major gold producers have been successful in adding to their reserve base, declining gold reserves replacement via exploration since 1997 may result in gold supply shortages in the long term. Especially evident from MEG’s analysis is that recently discovered large deposits of more than 2.5 Moz (of a size majors would consider developing) are not adequate to replace the majors’ gold production.The discovery rate of major gold deposits has declined in each of the last eight years. For the 1992-2005 period, total world mine output of gold was 1,100 Moz, 1.8 times the new resourcesdiscovered in deposits larger than 2.5 Moz. To make the discrepancy even worse, by year-end 2005, only 52% of the discovered resources had been upgraded to reserves. Although we expect the decline in discoveries will be reversed?the majors have more than doubled their annual gold exploration budgets between 2001 and 2005 and the junior and intermediate companies increased their total exploration budgets by almost five times?the shortage of large, major-company-sized projects is likely to remain a critical issue for the largest gold producers.last_img read more

Rehab Group will decide whether to reveal Angela Kerins salary next month

first_imgKerr said that he was conscious of the public interest in the matter and earlier comments from the Taoiseach adding that on this basis he has decided to “consult with my fellow directors to consider disclosing again the details of the Group CEOs salary”.Both the Taoiseach and the Tánaiste have called for transparency around salaries in the charitable sector today.Kerr said his approach has the support of Kearns and that the meeting will take place on 17 February to ensure that all directors and advisors to the Rehab Group are available.“I will issue a full statement on the matter immediately following that meeting,” Kerry promised.He also called on the Taoiseach to “show leadership on the issue of fair play for charity lotteries” saying he was saddened to hear the news about Irish Cancer Society and the Asthma Society “being forced to leave the market”.Kerr added: “I am requesting that the Taoiseach would take the lead and remove the prize cap on charitable lotteries to allowing them to compete on an fair basis with the government’s own national lottery as other charity lotteries operate in other European states… before any further damage is done to the sector and to prevent further job losses.”Read: ‘Your local GAA lottery wouldn’t work like this’: Varadkar criticises Rehab GroupRead: Rehab chief Angela Kerins won’t say what her current salary is THE REHAB GROUP will hold a special board meeting next month to decide whether or not to disclose the current annual salary of its chief executive Angela Kerins.The not-for-profit disability group confirmed plans for a special board meeting on 17 February to discuss the matter of Kerins’s salary which she has come under pressure to reveal in recent weeks.Figures from 2011 show Kerins earned €234,000, but when asked recently about her current pay in the wake of the top-ups controversy, she declined to answer and said her salary had been declared on a number of occasions already.In a statement this evening, Rehab Group chairman, Brian Kerr, defended the decision not to disclose the salary saying the board has received “no formal request from any relevant authority” to release details of her current pay.“This matter is properly a matter for the Board and not Ms Kerins, and some of the pressure that has been placed on her and her family has been entirely unfair and very personal.last_img read more

Police aided by OnStar find stolen car capture man

first_imgA man who was in the jail on Thursday night for allegedly possessing a stolen car can thank the OnStar vehicle-locating system — and a police dog that sniffed him out in the Minnehaha area Thursday afternoon.John Vanzant, 31, an Oregon resident, was being held on $15,000 bail on suspicion of possessing a stolen car and attempting to elude police, a jail employee said.The several-hour manhunt started late Thursday morning, when Onstar notified 911 dispatchers that a brown Saturn, which had been stolen in Portland, had been detected stopped near the Westfield Vancouver mall, said Officer Dave Chamblee with the Vancouver Police Department.Officers went there and found the car parked and unoccupied, and watched until a man got inside and drove away. Officers followed the Saturn and turned on their flashers, but the driver accelerated away, Chamblee said.Early Thursday afternoon, Vanzant, who allegedly abandoned the Saturn in the area of Northeast St. Johns Boulevard and 41st Street, was spotted. He fled on foot and was captured in an alley, Chamblee said.Vanzant was treated for a minor dog bite and taken to jail, Chamblee said.last_img read more

You need 27 seconds to regain attention after phone use

first_imgIf you thought it is okay to talk to your car infotainment system or smartphone while driving then think again. New research has found that it takes up to 27 seconds to regain full attention after issuing voice commands.University of Utah researchers conducted two studies for the traffic safety charity AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.One of the studies showed that it is highly distracting to use hands-free voice commands to dial phone numbers, call contacts, change music and send texts with Microsoft Cortana, Apple Siri and Google Now smartphone personal assistants.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’In another study, they examined voice-dialing, voice-contact calling and music selection using in-vehicle information or “infotainment” systems in 10 model-year 2015 vehicles. Three were rated as moderately distracting, six as highly distracting and one as very highly distracting, the US-based traffic safety non-profit said in a report.“Just because these systems are in the car doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to use them while you are driving,” said senior author of the two studies David Strayer, psychology professor at University of Utah.“It is better not to use them when you are driving,” Strayer said. The research also found that, contrary to what some may believe, practice with voice-recognition systems does not eliminate distraction.last_img read more

TeraCopy 30 First Look

first_imgTeraCopy 3.0 First Look by Martin Brinkmann on May 28, 2016 in Software – Last Update: May 28, 2016 – 23 commentsTeraCopy 3.0 is a new version of the popular file transfer software for Microsoft Windows operating systems that is currently in beta.TeraCopy has been designed primarily to address the slow copying speed of files on Windows regardless of whether transfers take place on the local system or network.While that’s the program’s main purpose, it has more to offer than that as it supports the queuing of transfers, pausing operations, and even error recovery functionality.A basic example: if you ever tried to copy or move files and folders from various locations on a computer to a new location, you may have noticed that you cannot do so efficiently using Windows Explorer / File Explorer.The main reason for that is that there is no queuing which means that you will either have to run each transfer separately one after the other, or initiate multiple ones at the same time but with a drop in overall transfer speed.TeraCopy 3.0TeraCopy 3.0 improves the foundation of the file transfer program further. It is currently available as a — very stable — beta version that adds features to the program without taking away any of the existing functionality in the process.Note: Operating system compatibility appears to have changed. TeraCopy 3.0 requires at least Windows Vista (or any newer version of Windows), while the previous version supported Windows 2000 and XP as well. If you are running an older, no longer supported, version of Windows, you will not be able to upgrade to TeraCopy 3.You can install TeraCopy 3.0 or use it as a portable application instead if you prefer it that way. The program can be integrated into the shell so that its functionality becomes available when you right-click on files or folders in Explorer.As far as new features are concerned, there are quite a few that deserve mentioning. The file transfer process has been improved in several ways. You do get insufficient space warnings now for instance which is very helpful, and the program will wait for network or device recovery as well.There is also a new option to queue transfers for transfers on the same physical drive, and an option to save checksums to a file.TeraCopy 3 can generate checksums for files during transfers (and verify files after transfers). TeraCopy 3.0 adds new hashing options (Panama, RipeMD and Whirlpool) to the program, support for CR32 in the file name, and offers better HTML and CSV reports.That’s not all though. The program features keyboard navigation and menus now, and error messages are shown below file names to make things clearer.The interface received several improvements as well. The file transfer progress is now highlighted in the TeraCopy taskbar icon, and support for the Windows 8 / 10 notification system has been added as well.Last but not least, there is a new “rename all older target files” mode that you can make use of now, a timer in the replace dialog, and new replace mode and has options.TeraCopy Pro customers benefit from two pro-only features. There is a new visibility option to only show skipped, failed or transferred items, and an option to remove all transferred files.Closing WordsTeraCopy 3.0 improves previous versions of the file transfer program without taking anything away from it. While the program may not be useful to all users, it is improving file transfers for users who transfer files often, especially when these items are located in different source folders.You can download the beta version of TeraCopy 3.0 from the official blog.SummaryArticle NameTeraCopy 3.0 First LookDescriptionA first look at TeraCopy 3.0 Beta, a new version of the popular file transfer program for the Microsoft Windows operating system.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Egyptian authorities seize some assets of top soccer player

first_imgCAIRO (AP) — Egyptian authorities confiscated some assets of the nation’s most popular soccer player over his suspected links to the country’s banned Islamist group, the Muslim Brotherhood, an official said Friday.The decision was made by a judicial committee tracking the money trail of the Brotherhood — from which ousted President Mohammed Morsi hails — against Mohammed Abu Trika’s tour company, the official said.

The committee ordered the Central Bank to freeze bank accounts of Abu Trika’s company, said the official, adding that the rest of the soccer star’s wealth has not been touched. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media.The 36-year-old Abu Trika — “The Magician” as his fans called him — is now retired, after playing for the popular club Al-Ahly. He was named Africa star four times in the past years.He has been known with his nationalist stances that only added to his popularity. In 2008, when Palestinians in the Gaza Strip broke through the fence separating them from Egypt, he pulled off his team’s red shirt to show a white one underneath, with the words “Sympathize with Gaza” printed on it.On his Facebook page, Abu Trika commented on the asset confiscation by posting: “I will not leave the country.”The committee’s decision was widely criticized on social networking sites, where some activists launched an on-line campaign dubbed “Abu-Trika is a red line.”After Morsi’s ouster in 2013, the Egyptian government branded the Brotherhood a terrorist organization and ordered confiscation of its assets, closing down dozens of medical centers and schools in addition to freezing accounts of its top leaders and members. Most of the group’s leaders are either in exile or behind bars on charges of orchestrating violence. Top Stories Former Arizona Rep.
