By Yasyn MouhirMarrakech – Moroccan National coach, Badou Zaki, has revealed the initial list of players of the Moroccan national team in preparation for the match against Sao Tome in the draw qualifiers for the African Cup of Nations, to be held in Gabon in early 2017.The most notable surprise on the list is the presence of Mohammed Bouldini, the Raja Casablaca player, in addition to the absence of the Moroccan “Messi” Hashim Mastour, Mubarek Boussoufa, Marouane Chamakh, and Houssine Kharja. Although this marks the third time in a row that Mubarak Boussoufa did not make to the list, the absence of Marouane Chamakh, and veteran Houssine Kharja, and the presence of Mohammed Bouldini, the young player of Raja, are considered the biggest surprises on this list.The following is the list of 24 players:-Goalkeepers: Munir Mohammadi (Numancia) -Yasin Bono (Zaragoza) – Amine Borkadi (Khouribga) – Elyoussfi (MAT).-Defense: Benatia (Bayern Munich) – Essam Adoua (Laval Chinese) – Mohamed Oulhaj and Jbira (Raja) – Alshakir (FAR) – Shafiq (Laval) – Achntih (Vitesse Arnhem)– Midfielders:  Ahmadi (Feyenoord) – Obadi (Lille) – Ait Benidder (WAC) – Masoudi (Lierse) – Amrabat (Malaga) – Saadane (FUS)– Forwards:  Sufian Baufal (Lille) – Atef Chahchouh (Siva Spor) – Osama al-Saidi (Libyan Ahli) – Hamdallah (Qatari Jaish) – Mohsen Yajour (Qatar Qatar) – Yassin Bamo (Nantes) – Mohammed Bouldini (Raja) read more

In August 2012, the Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Mr Ebrahim Ebrahim, accompanied by a civil society delegation, visited Sri Lanka to meet with the leaders of the Sri Lankan government, the Tamil community, NGOs and other stakeholders. The visit formed part of the on-going efforts aimed at addressing the need for the resolution of the outstanding issues following the end in May 2009 of the bloody civil war in that country. The visit followed an earlier meeting in March 2012, held in Pretoria, between the Minister of International Relations and Cooperation of South Africa, Ms Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, and the Minister of External Affairs of Sri Lanka, Professor GL Peiris, where the two ministers discussed, among other things, the need for the two countries to strengthen and deepen their cooperation and people-to-people contacts in the context of the resolution of the Tamil Question in Sri Lanka. The South African government has called for talks in Sri Lanka to addresses the rights and freedoms of the Tamil community.A statement by the South African Department of International Relations and Cooperation said that in its continued interaction with the Sri Lankan government and its leaders on the issues of reconciliation and nation-building in the post-conflict era, the South African government has always believed that the domestic accountability issues must first and foremost be sought at the national level and that there should be demonstrable and concrete effort and movement in that regard. During his visit to South Africa, Professor Peiris also met with Deputy Minister Ebrahim, where the two sides discussed the importance of the need for an inclusive dialogue that would lead to true reconciliation and address the rights and freedoms of the Tamil community in Sri Lanka.Deputy Minister’s visit to Sri Lanka was his second to that country in a space of eight months, demonstrating the importance and urgency that the South African government attaches to the Sri Lankan situation. Since the end of the war in May 2009 and the release of the UN Secretary General’s Report of the Panel of Experts in April 2011, as well as the Sri Lankan government’s own Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) Report in December 2011, there has been a heightened demand and urgency in the international community for the Sri Lankan government to implement the outcomes of these Reports and other decisions of the UN Human Rights Council, with specific empic emphasis on the need to address the accountability issues following the events of May 2009.The South African government has further, and on several occasions, emphasized that a durable and lasting peace would come about in Sri Lanka when the reconciliation process is underscored by a broad and truly inclusive dialogue process that addresses the rights and freedoms of the Tamil community and has the support of the international community and all Sri Lankans within and outside that country, the statement said. read more

Sirsena said that he dismissed the Prime Minister for conspiring a plot to assassinate him. Sirisena had then suspended parliament before a vote to verify Rajapaksa’s appointment, and then dissolved the legislature entirely. Former Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed has expressed concern over the ongoing political crisis in neighbouring Sri Lanka, Raajje.mv reported.In a tweet on Saturday, Nasheed said it is ‘heartbreaking’ to see Sri Lanka in such a predicament. Sri Lanka’s apex court had reversed this decision and parliamentarians had rejected Rajapaksa’s appointment upon reconvening.The rivalry between prime ministers and Sirisena’s undermining of the country’s democratic mechanisms have caused a ‘political catastrophe’, critics say. (Colombo Gazette) President Maithripala Sirisena had in October replaced Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, who has a significant base of supporters, with former president Mahinda Rajapaksa, who claims credit for ending the country’s civil war and is accused of war crimes against civilians. read more

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Investors should turn to retail stocks for bargains in 2014, says CIBC TORONTO – Bargain-hunters looking for value may want to consider investing in consumer stocks this year, as competition in the retail sector continues to intensify amid a lower loonie and more entrants vying for customers in an already crowded market, according to CIBC.In a note Wednesday, CIBC equity analyst Perry Caicco said that while the bank (TSX:CM) generally recommends investors focus on either “high-growth companies or more traditional companies where management is actively driving value,” it sees long-term underlying value in retail and consumer stocks.“As quarters unfold and as the challenges become apparent, (price/ earnings) multiples are likely to decline,” Caicco wrote.“But underneath it all, certain transition activities will begin to bear fruit and there could be some great bargains again among these stocks.”The note points out that the consumer staples index on the Toronto Stock Exchange has risen 53 per cent in the past two years, while the consumer discretionary index has gone up 67 per cent, mainly due to mergers and acquisitions and a number of successful real estate spinoffs.Caicco said the arrival of U.S. discounter Target changed the retail landscape in Canada, with other major players like Walmart and grocer Loblaws (TSX:L) expanding and diversifying to stay competitive.He describes this year as one of “digesting and transition” as many of these companies deal with acquisitions, increase their square footage and shift strategies to attract consumers.“Retailers are lapping a year of significant square footage growth and several got dented pretty badly. Even the multinationals like Walmart, Target and Lowe’s (especially Target) are not happy with their sales results,” he said.Competition will only increase with retailers Nordstrom and Saks set to land in Canada this year, noted Caicco, adding that some companies, like those in the grocery business, as well as Tim Hortons (TSX:THI) and Rona (TSX:RON) might be at risk during any period of transition.“We expect them (retailers) to be quite aggressive in the hunt for sales this year and everyone will have to respond or see revenues erode,” he said.“This does not necessarily ease in the second half — we believe this battle will continue all year.”This pressure could produce “unstable” earnings, which can result in share prices falling sharply, a trend seen with Loblaw late last year, Empire (TSX:EMP.A), Metro (TSX:MRU), Aimia (TSX:AIM), Rona and Dorel (TSX:DII.B).But the “slightest stumble” in profits for these retailers could also mean a shopping opportunity for bargain-hungry investors, noted Caicco. by The Canadian Press Posted Mar 26, 2014 2:00 am MDT read more

US retail sales rise as consumers shrug off stock price drop In this Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016, photo, shoppers are shown in Miami. On Friday, Feb. 12, 2016, the Commerce Department releases retail sales data for January. (AP Photo/Alan Diaz) by Christopher S. Rugaber And Anne D’Innocenzio, The Associated Press Posted Feb 12, 2016 6:42 am MDT Last Updated Feb 12, 2016 at 12:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – U.S. retail sales rose modestly in January, evidence that Americans kept shopping despite sharp drops in stock prices.The Commerce Department said Friday that retail sales increased a seasonally adjusted 0.2 per cent last month, the same as in December. Excluding the effect of falling gas prices, sales rose 0.4 per cent.Sales in December were revised higher from an initial estimate of a 0.1 per cent drop.Steady hiring and early signs that employers are finally handing out higher wages means that Americans have more money to spend. A key question for the economy this year is whether consumer spending can keep growing and offset the impacts of stock market volatility and slowing growth overseas.“The markets may have decided that the U.S. is headed for recession, but obviously no one told U.S. consumers,” Paul Ashworth said in a research note. Low prices caused a sharp fall in gas station sales, but “otherwise, sales were strong across the board,” he added.Americans stepped up their purchases in January of autos, home supplies and groceries, and spent more online. They spent less at restaurants and bars, likely because of harsh snowstorms on the East Coast.The retail sales report provides the first indication each month of Americans’ spending, which drives 70 per cent of the economy. Yet retail sales account for only about one-third of all spending, with services such as haircuts and Internet access making up the other two-thirds.Gas prices averaged $1.70 a gallon nationwide Thursday, according to AAA. That’s down 27 cents in just the past month.Cheap gas is dragging down the overall retail sales figures, which include gas but don’t account for price changes. Excluding the impact of cheap gas, retail sales rose 4.5 per cent in January from 12 months earlier. That was the best year-over-pace since September.A key question for consumers this year will be how much they spend of the money left over from cheap gas, and how much they sock away in savings. Last year, they saved more than many economists expected, restraining growth.On Wednesday, the National Retail Federation forecast above average sales this year, citing better hiring and wage increases, as well as lower gas prices. It forecasts retail sales will increase 3.1 per cent in 2016, higher than its 10-year average of 2.7 per cent.Still, that is a slowdown from its estimate last summer that retail sales would grow 3.5 per cent in 2015. Its figures exclude autos, gas stations and restaurants.The government’s figures show that a category mostly made up of online and catalogue sales rose 1.6 per cent in January, the most in nearly a year. They were up 8.7 per cent from a year earlier.At the same time, department store sales plummeted 0.8 per cent and have fallen 3.8 per cent in the past year.The widening gap between online and traditional retailers will be on display next week with major stores like Wal-Mart, Target and J.C. Penney putting up their numbers from the fourth quarter, which includes the crucial holiday shopping period.This year, as has been the case for years now, shoppers increasingly migrated on line leading up to the holiday.With traffic at malls and department stores sluggish, Amazon.com two weeks ago, reported that its fourth-quarter revenue spiked 22 per cent to almost $36 billion. Its profit doubled.Traditional retailers right now are in retrenchment mode.Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, is closing 269 stores, including 154 in the U.S. That’s a fraction of its 5,000 stores, but still a rare event.Macy’s Inc. is cutting 4,800 jobs and profit expectations as well.The ailing Sears Holdings Corp., which owns Kmart, said this week that it would accelerate store closures.“The actions are smart, but they may not be enough,” said Walter Loeb, an independent retail consultant in New York. “It may be necessary to do more. We are overstored.”___D’Innocenzio reported from New York City. read more

“Despite the difficult regional context and the challenges on the ground between Israel and Palestine, this is not an opportunity that either can afford to lose,” Under-Secretary-General Jeffrey Feltman said in his briefing to the Security Council. “After 20 years of talks and too many negative developments on the ground, we don’t need lengthy negotiations,” he added. “What we, and the parties, need are decisions, the right decisions, and leaders who are committed to usher in an agreed political solution.” Direct negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians stalled in September 2010, after Israel refused to extend its freeze on settlement activity in the occupied Palestinian territory. Following efforts by United States Secretary of State John Kerry, the two sides resumed negotiations this August. “Despite the welcome intensification of negotiations, there have been worrisome developments on the ground that we cannot ignore,” Mr. Feltman said, reiterating the UN’s unequivocal call on all to refrain from violence and incitement, reinforce calm and reverse negative trends in order to preserve the “tentative” opening in the political process. He cited a number of violent incidents that led to deaths and injuries on both sides; settlement activity, which is “an obstacle to peace and against international law”; ongoing clashes between Palestinians and settlers; growing provocations at holy sites; and Israeli demolitions.The calm in the Gaza Strip is also showing “worrying” signs of erosion, he added, referring to a recently discovered tunnel between the territory and Israel as well as Palestinian rocket fire into Israel and Israeli incursions into Gaza. Meanwhile in Lebanon, security continues to be affected by cross-border shelling and shooting from Syria. In light of the multiple impacts of the Syrian crisis on Lebanon, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon last month convened the inaugural meeting to launch an International Support Group for Lebanon. Mr. Feltman said the UN anticipates an expansion of the Group to embrace additional countries and organizations that share the goal of helping Lebanon.“The tragedy in Syria continues to test our collective resolve and ability to end the violence there,” he said, referring to the conflict that is now in its third year and has already claimed more than 100,000 lives. “While important progress has been made on the chemical weapons file, it will by no means bring an end by itself to the appalling suffering of the Syrian people.”The UN is working to convene a peace conference in Geneva in mid-November aimed at helping the Syrian sides launch a political process and establish by consent a new transitional governing body with full executive authority.“With a political process, however difficult it may be, there is hope that a new Syria will emerge. Without it, there is little on the horizon but the further destruction of Syria and the further destabilization of the region as a result of this conflict,” said Mr. Feltman.“We are working at all levels and hope that a common vision for apolitical solution can soon emerge among Syrians, in the region and globally,” he added.The Council, he said, is meeting at a time of “heightened diplomacy” on several issues, from the Syria catastrophe to the Middle East peace process to questions regarding nuclear proliferation. “While the challenges on each front should not be underestimated, it is important to maintain and even increase the momentum behind diplomacy,” he stated. “We encourage and remain committed to supporting this Council and its members in fully exploring all opportunities at hand to resolve peacefully, though dialogue, the difficult issues that bedevil peace and security in the region.” read more

And its final seven games include matchups against four teams that rank in the top 10 of FiveThirtyEight’s Elo ratings.

Elsewhere, the readers had their hearts broken by the Cowboys, who were taken care of by the Falcons 27-7. With that win, the Falcons overtook the Cowboys in odds of making the playoffs. The biggest win for the readers came via the “Toilet Bowl,” which saw the 49ers beat the Giants for their first win of the season.

This isn’t merely a function of Goff being terrible last year and decent this year, either. His 8.5 yards per passing attempt is currently the best in the NFL.While Goff and the Rams offense have drawn the bulk of the headlines, the defense has shown stellar improvement as well. Although the Rams’ D has gone quietly unnoticed,3Especially for a unit that allowed 20 points or more in 10 games last season, compared with just three occasions through nine games this season. it has jumped from 23rd in the league in opponent’s points per game last year to tied for third-best so far this season.When both units work in tandem, as they did against the Texans on Sunday, there might not be a better balanced team in the NFL — L.A. is the only team this season that ranks in the top five in both offensive and defensive expected points added.

When they improved to 7-2 with a 33-7 demolition over the Houston Texans in Week 10, the Rams exceeded our projected win totals and now own a 71 percent chance of making the postseason. You can forgive our Elo algorithm for being so low on the Rams in the preseason — they did have the NFL’s worst offense last year1According to points scored per game and did finish on a seven-game losing streak as part of a 4-12 record. This season’s truly incredible transformation has taken place under the league’s youngest-ever head coach — Sean McVay, who was hired when he was 30 years old — and thus far, L.A. ranks among the best teams in the league (the same can’t be said about their fans though).Led by sophomore quarterback Jared Goff — who is firmly in the MVP conversation — the offense is on pace to make the Rams the first team since the 1965 San Francisco 49ers to lead the league in scoring2Points per game. in a season immediately after finishing last in scoring, according to Elias Sports Bureau. The addition of wide receivers Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins from the Buffalo Bills and development of third-year running back Todd Gurley have helped L.A.’s offense increase their points scored per game by 18.9 — that would be the largest annual jump since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970, according to ESPN Stats & Information Group. As for Goff, the No.1 pick in the 2016 draft was truly awful in his rookie campaign, and his future in the league was questionable. The former Cal Golden Bear went winless in his seven starts and finished with more interceptions than touchdowns. But under the guidance of McVay, Goff has flourished. Indeed, merely saying that he has improved is an understatement: He’s tracking for the second biggest increase in passer rating — a measure of how good a quarterback is — from year one to year two of any QB in history to make at least 200 passing attempts in each year. 6Carson Wentz2016 to 2017Philadelphia+3.5+2.9+24.8 NE71NE77NE 41, DEN 16+0.9– RANKTEAMOFFENSEDEFENSEDIFFERENCERECORD 4Steve DeBerg1978 to 1979San Francisco+0.4+2.8+33.1 10Jack Trudeau1986 to 1987Indianapolis+0.6+2.5+21.9 PICKWIN PROB.PICKWIN PROB.RESULTREADERS’ NET PTS JAX67JAX66LAC 17, JAX 20-2.4– 9Eagles+63.1+24.438.78-1 Among quarterbacks who made at least 200 pass attempts in each of their first and second seasons.Source: Pro-Football-Reference.com CAR71CAR73MIA 21, CAR 45-1.4– The Rams are the most balanced team in footballThe difference in offensive and defensive expected points added for teams with positive records Check out our latest NFL predictions. read more

first_imgSEVEN US MARINES were killed and eight others wounded when a mortar round exploded while still in its launch tube during a training exercise in Nevada, the US military has said.The accident involved a powerful 60 millimetre round and the Marine Corps ordered a ban on the use of such mortars after the incident, pending the outcome of an investigation.“A blanket suspension of 60 millimetre mortars and associated tubes is now in effect until review is complete,” said Marine Corps spokeswoman Captain Kendra Motz.The number of troops reported wounded in the blast rose to eight late last night, including two “very seriously” injured, according to a Marine Corps statement.“The Marines were conducting live fire and manoeuvre training at the Hawthorne army depot,” said Brigadier General Jim Lukeman, head of the 2nd Marine Division, which was taking part in the drill.A 60 millimetre round went off while in a mortar tube and “we don’t know yet what caused this malfunction,” the general told reporters at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, where the 2nd division is based.The vast depot in the western Nevada desert spans nearly 600 kilometres and includes more than 2,000 bunkers. Its desolate terrain and high altitude is used to train troops preparing to deploy to Afghanistan.Major General Raymond Fox, the commander of the II Marine Expeditionary Force, expressed sorrow over the casualties.“We mourn their loss, and it is with heavy hearts we remember their courage and sacrifice,” he said in a statement.US President Barack Obama and Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel were briefed on the accident and expressed their condolences, officials said.Senator Harry Reid of Nevada said: “My heart goes out to the families of those who lost their lives. And my sympathies are with their fellow Marines, who are also grieving this loss.”The site of the Nevada depot, about 225 kilometres southeast of Reno, was chosen for its remote location after a fatal accidental explosion at another depot in New Jersey in 1926.Hawthorne served as the main staging area for ammunition during World War II and once employed about 5,600 people.The depot is now run by a contractor and is used to renovate ammunition, destroy outmoded ordnance and prepare troops for desert combat and other training.The accident came a year after seven Marines were killed in a collision of helicopters near the border of California and Arizona, which involved an AH-1W Super Cobra chopper and a UH-14 Huey.The Pentagon has tried to reduce the number of training accidents and says it has made some progress over the past decade.

first_imgAnsés : l’Afssa et l’Afsset ont fusionnéFrance – Le 1er juillet dernier, l’Afssa et l’Afsset ont officiellement fusionné pour former l’Agence nationale de sécurité sanitaire de l’Alimentation, de l’Environnement et du Travail (Ansés). Cet organisme reprendra toutes les missions et les moyens des deux anciennes agences.La fusion de l’Agence française de sécurité sanitaire des aliments et l’Agence française de sécurité sanitaire de l’environnement et du travail a été officiellement entérinée le 1er juillet, par la publication d’un décret au Journal Officiel. Une entité dont Marc Mortureux, directeur de l’ancienne Afssa, devrait prendre la tête.Comme ce dernier l’a expliqué à l’AFP, “cette fusion permettra de mettre les efforts en commun pour travailler sur toutes les sources d’exposition des individus tout au long de leur vie, que ce soit par l’alimentation, l’environnement ou encore la santé au travail”. Assurant que tous les employés des anciennes agences seront réengagés au sein de la nouvelle entité, Marc Mortureux souligne que l’Ansés “est destinée à gagner en efficacité et à améliorer la protection des consommateurs et des citoyens”. En plus des 1.350 personnes déjà employées par l’Afssa et l’Afsset, 800 experts externes travailleront pour la nouvelle agence au travers d’une vingtaine de comités spécialisés. Placée sous la tutelle des ministres chargés de l’agriculture, de la consommation, de l’environnement, de la santé et du travail, l’Ansés devient ainsi la plus grande agence de sécurité sanitaire en Europe. Son conseil d’administration sera composé de partenaires sociaux, d’ONG, d’associations de protection de l’environnement et de défense des consommateurs, mais aussi d’organisations professionnelles, d’élus et de personnalités qualifiées.Le 6 juillet 2010 à 17:09 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgStay on target Batman Loses a Dad Again, Another Ben Affleck Update & More DC Movie NewsSecret Aquaman Role, Wonder Woman’s Throwback Photo, & More DC Movie News Justice League may be the main event for the DCEU this year, but if these reports are any indication, things are about to get bigger, crazier and Batman-ier in the years to come. The biggest news comes from a red carpet interview with Dwayne Johnson before the premiere of The Fate of the Furious. That movie is out this weekend, but MTV News couldn’t help asking about his future in the DCEU. Johnson was cast as Black Adam in the Shazam movie in 2014, but their hasn’t been a ton of information about the project since.Well according to the interview, that’s because it’s being split into two movies. Both Shazam and Black Adam will get their own standalone films. This will turn likely turn Johnson’s character into more of an antihero rather than an outright villain.“This is a really, really fun, cool time for DC right now because they’re really in a process of truly world building,” Johnson said. “So what we decided to do was actually create a scenario where Black Adam is having his standalone movie, Captain Marvel/Shazam will have his standalone movie, and then we’re building our world up that way and then we can come together at some other point.”That could be fascinating if Warner Bros. can pull it off. Having two movies where you really get to know both sides before they meet in battle is a really cool idea that hasn’t been fully explored in superhero movies at this point. Sure, you could maybe argue Captain America: Civil War kind of did that, but you couldn’t really call Iron Man or Captain America an antihero in that movie. Of course, this means we won’t see a Shazam vs. Black Adam movie for a long time.Collider points out that with Johnson’s full plate over the next year or so, it’s likely he won’t even be able to start shooting Black Adam until he finishes Disney’s Jungle Cruise movie. And that won’t start filming until next Spring. It’ll be a while before we see anything more from either Black Adam or Shazam. Johnson did tease a surprise announcement may be coming soon though.“We have a surprise for Black Adam coming up. I can’t tell you what it is, but it’s gonna be… it’s gonna be f*cking awesome,” he said. Well, we’ll just have to wait to find out whatever qualifies as “fucking awesome” for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.Ben Affleck as Batman in Justice League. (Photo: Screenshot via YouTube/Warner Bros.)While we wait for those movies to come out in the far distant future, DC may be preparing to give us a whole lot of Batman in 2019. That year will mark the character’s 80th anniversary, and Warner Bros. is planning something big. A rumor posted in the DCEU Leaks subreddit suggests that there will be four Batman related movies released that year. The first will come on Valentine’s Day, with the Gotham City Sirens. The next will be Nightwing on Memorial Day, followed by Batgirl in August. The year will end with the highly-anticipated, long-delayed The Batman in November 2019.The rumors say that The Batman will involve Deathstroke, though he won’t be the main villain. Nightwing and Batgirl will also be involved in the story, which would be the reason for releasing this one last. It would also potentially make Batman’s standalone film a bigger movie than Justice League. The question is, can DC pull something like that off?Those aren’t the only movies rumored to be coming out for Batman’s 80th birthday. The Dark Octogenarian will reportedly star in two animated movies that year as well. One of those will be an adaptation of The Long Halloween, one of the comics’ most celebrated story arcs. Taking place in Batman’s early years of crime-fighting, The Long Halloween showcases his detective skills. He hunts down a serial killer named Holiday, who kills one person each month, always on a holiday. At the same time, he tries to stop a crime war from breaking out between Gotham’s most powerful mob families. It’s a great story, and an animated adaptation could be amazing. Provided they don’t add an unnecessary prologue to it, as they have with certain other animated adaptations.Finally, if it seems like it’s been a long, strange road the DC movies have taken to get to this point, that’s because it has been. It’s strange, really. DC has such great characters and some of the best stories in the business. Who could have predicted it would be such a long road for them? Well, someone did. Way back in 2007, in the early days of YouTube, this video was uploaded.It’s crazy how spot on everything in this video is. Literally everything Superman says comes to pass almost exactly as he said it. Man of Steel was still a long ways off, and he did fight a supervillain in that one. Justice League is finally coming out after ten years, just like he said it would. Meanwhile, Marvel’s Cinematic Universe happened about as smoothly as Spider-Man implied it would. And even though there were only two Amazing Spider-Man movies, Sony and Marvel did negotiate for three new Spider-Man movies in the MCU. Man, looking back on DC’s troubles in the years since this video game out, it almost makes this comedy sketch a little sad. Almost. It’s still mostly funny.Also, remember when YouTube videos looked like that? Hey, just the fact that they played smoothly at all was amazing back in the day.last_img read more

first_imgThe Federal Subsistence Board voted Tuesday to work to re-establish better relations with the state of Alaska.A federal-state memorandum of understanding, or MOU, on subsistence expired last year over differences on data sharing, day-to-day operations, and other issues.Download AudioThe agencies that make up the Federal Subsistence Board agreed last year to disagree with the state of Alaska on subsistence management. Federal laws dictate protection of wildlife and preservation of natural conditions and processes in national parks and wildlife refuges. Meanwhile, the Palin and Parnell administrations had embraced an “intensive management” approach that involves manipulating habitat and killing predators to increase harvestable prey.U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regional director Geoff Haskett told other board members the time is right to work on a new MOU.“I think we’re in a different time now than we were a couple of years ago when we weren’t able to have much in the way of constructive discussions with the state on this,” Haskett said. “I think the timings right for us to send a letter from the board requesting the state to begin those discussions anew. And I think the chances for a positive outcome are pretty good right now.”And, said Daniel Sharp, Subsistence Coordinator for the Alaska Office of the Bureau of Land Management, federal agencies need to iron out differences with the state before they bring tribes into management of fish and game.“It’s going to be difficult for a co-management scenario to be successful if the feds and state can’t have an MOU to agree,” Sharp said. “If we  we’re not going to do much better to bring in a third party when  the first two parties aren’t necessarily in alignment or agreement, so I think that’s probably the nexus or the  justification for reinvigorating this MOU discussion is there’s also a  looming co-management discussions and we have to have all the parties at the table.”In other actions, the board directed staff to begin to develop policies and perhaps seek secretarial executive orders to bolster new regulations for deciding which communities fit the “rural” designation that makes subsistence a priority use.The board also endorsed two dozen fisheries resource monitoring projects totaling $1.8 million, with final grant amounts to be decided by budget allocations.The board’s endorsements were guided by technical committees of biologists and anthropologists, and regional subsistence advisory councils, or RACs.Haskett, who’s retiring in a few months, says giving greater weight to the voices of those most affected by decisions is a change he’s seen during his tenure on the board.“I’m very sad to be leaving the board. I’ve been doing it for 8 years now. It’s gone through a lot of changes. One of the things that’s been really good is – I think our record speaks for itself – about 98% of the time we support what the RAC recommendations are,” Haskett said. “Sometimes the RAC’s don’t always agree so there are some issues there. But we work really, really hard so we’re addressing conservation issues at the same time making sure we support subsistence use out there. So it’s been really an honor to be able to work on this board.”The board is soliciting applications to serve on regional subsistence councils, with a due date of January 29.last_img read more

Cruising is a great product to sell; ship inspections and training programs that the cruise lines provide give you invaluable information and allow you to provide accurate and up-to-date information to your clients. Take all opportunities to meet with cruise reps and attend industry functions. The CLIA training, in particular the Master Accredited course gave a strong direction for my business and of course cruising yourself is the best way to build your knowledge.”Harwood is continually inspired by the cruising industry and sees 2017 as no exception.“Cruising within Australia has had huge growth over the last decade. It is ever changing; I am inspired by the new destinations, itineraries and beautiful products that are released every year.

first_imgBy Elias HazouThe government is “convinced” that the state power company (EAC) must remain in state hands, Energy Minister Giorgos Lakkotrypis reiterated on Tuesday, asking why trade unions are up in arms and threatening strike action.Speaking on the public broadcaster radio, Lakkotrypis said the Memorandum of Understanding with the international lenders – known as the troika – calls for the “efficient and effective” splitting up of the state power company.This is a “prior action” for the release of the next tranche of Cyprus’ bailout programme.Although the MoU does not explicitly refer to the ownership or legal unbundling of the EAC, it is the course of action selected by the government for the company’s effective separation.Under the third EU energy package, this was among three options available to the government, he said.The government proposal, forwarded to the troika last Wednesday, calls for breaking up the EAC into two separate organisations: a distribution monopoly, and a power-producing entity competing in the liberalised electricity market.Although the transmission and distribution grid would remain a monopoly, private operators (energy suppliers) would be able to use it.Two public-law entities would be created – effectively two semi-governmental organisations – both owned by the state.Employees would retain their civil servant status and all their rights and benefits.The key difference, however, is that via ownership unbundling the two entities would not be able to engage in cross-subsidisation of operations, as is the currently the case.The cabinet is to take a ‘preliminary decision’ for ownership unbundling. Once and if the troika green-lights the proposal, a road map will be submitted, with a two-year horizon for implementation.Lakkotrypis confirmed also that the government proposal includes repealing a decree calling for the privatisation of the EAC.According to the minister, the accounting separation of the EAC – which the company is in the process of carrying out – on its own is insufficient for complying with the requirements of the third EU energy package.The other option would have been to have an Independent Transmission Operator (ITO), which France has adopted. That provides for the creation of private-law subsidiaries, under a public-law organisation, to which would be transferred some of the assets of the power company.The third option would have been to create an independent systems operator.These two other options were studied in detail, but it was decided that the legal unbundling of the EAC was the best scenario for the Cypriot market, Lakkotrypis said.It is the most balanced solution, he added, given the number of indeterminate factors that might impact the energy market.Examples of such developments, which could thwart plans, included the possible importation of natural gas (the interim gas solution), a mooted electricity cable connection with Israel, and the possible solution of the Cyprus problem.Lakkotrypis denied allegations that he coerced the EAC board and management into agreeing with the ownership unbundling, during meetings held in the past couple of weeks.And he challenged the EAC trade unions to prove how the legal separation of the company would, in their words, be catastrophic.Currently, the EAC is a vertically integrated organisation, in that it owns the entire supply chain. The unions want to keep it that way, and say that accounting separation is where they draw the line.Adonis Yiasemides, head of the scientific personnel trade union SEPAIK, countered that the government is trying to fix something that isn’t broken.“If two entities are created, we will need two licenses, two different software systems, two managements, two boards. All these expenses will be borne by the taxpayer,” he argued.The European Commission, he said, has granted derogations to countries like Cyprus, Malta and Luxembourg, which all have isolated power grids, so that they are exempted from ownership unbundling of their power companies.The accounting separation alone is enough to comply with the third energy package, Yiasemides added, noting that the troika is going beyond that.He accused the government of failing to forcefully make this point to the international lenders during negotiations.“The troika has no one inside who is from the European Commission’s energy directorate. They are all economists and accountants,” offered Yiasemides.He further argued that the government has not carried out a cost-benefit analysis on the proposed ownership unbundling.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
