Injaz Al Maghrib Association Meets Partners for Review and Goal Setting

By Safaa KasraouiRabat – Injaz Al Maghrib Association met with its volunteer advisors and partners December 20th for it’s annual discussion of both its yearly outcomes as well as its 2017 goals.On this occasion, Chairwoman and CEO, Laila Mamou, expressed her heartfelt thanks to the volunteer advisors and partners specializing in the entrepreneurship education involved in the projects. She also took the opportunity to present the association’s annual management report. Since its creation in 2007, 27,845 young people have been trained by 1,190 volunteer counselors between 2015 and 2016, an 56% increase compared to the last year.The association hopes to reach 200,000 young participants by the year 2020. To aid in reaching this goal, Mamou speculated that, ”the association ought to focus more on long programs for a better result.”A long program stretches out over six months, two hours a week. This can lead to challenges including finding volunteer counselors or recommending people who actively serve the association,” she noted. She also pointed out that, Injaz Al Maghrib’s first goal is to assist as many young people as possible in taking advantage of the experienced volunteer advisors and fully committed partners, all of whom will play a critical role in the association’s 2020 timeline.From 2015-2016, 10.900 young people benefited from the association’s long programs. The association ultimately wants to see their interaction with these young people go beyond their current training programs so that, in time, they might be able to create their own businesses. With this goal in mind, the association’s ”Smart Start” program was launched for the exclusive benefit of young people, who’d successfully completed the flagship program of Injaz Al Maghrib Association.A total of 18 project owners benefited from this program from 2015-2016 and it should also be noted that the association is in the process of preparing seed projects for the financing of start-ups with the Attijariwafa bank’s Private Equity fund. read more

From North London to French Riviera Its Henry vs Vieira

PARIS — When they played together for Arsenal, Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira knew the importance of getting one over on local rival Tottenham.Scoring in the North London derby helped them become club legends, cementing their place in the hearts of fans. Of Vieira’s 34 goals for Arsenal, none of them felt sweeter than when he scored against Tottenham.Same for Henry, who arguably got the best of his 228 club-record goals for Arsenal against Spurs — picking up the ball 70 metres from goal and carving through the midfield and defence before finishing with a powerful curling shot.Just like they did with France as World Cup and European Championship winners, the two prospered together for Arsenal and hit the ultimate height of an unbeaten season when Arsenal’s “Invincibles” won the league in 2004.On Friday they will be on opposite sides as managerial rivals when Henry’s struggling Monaco takes on Vieira’s consistent Nice.Nice is unbeaten in six games and comfortably poised in seventh place. Monaco is one place above the relegation zone in 17th on goal difference alone.“We’re doing breaststroke,” said Henry, using a swimming metaphor, after Tuesday’s 2-0 win at Amiens. “Sometimes we have our head underwater, other times we lift it up.”Given how Monaco rarely fills its 18,500-capacity stadium, Friday’s match won’t quite match the frenzy and fervour of the North London derbies of old at Highbury and White Hart Lane.But this match nevertheless has a derby feel to it, with the local sides just 20 miles (32 kilometres) apart on the French Riviera.“I know what it’s like, I’ve already played in it,” said Henry, who started his glittering career as a prodigious teen with Monaco in 1994.Henry used to love scoring against Spurs, but his players will have their work cut out doing so against a Nice side which has kept a single-season club record of six straight clean sheets heading into this game.As a strong and fiery midfielder, Vieira offered a protective shield to his defence. Those same combative qualities are now apparent in a Nice side which — although lacking firepower — has the fourth best defensive record in Ligue 1.But Radamel Falcao’s return to form will give Vieira a headache.Falcao scored twice against Amiens to take his tally to seven in 14 league games. Although both were penalties, the Colombia striker’s sharpness and movement were the best they have been in a turbulent spell for Henry’s Monaco.Since taking charge in mid-October, Henry has won only two of 10 games — both against teams hovering around the relegation zone. There have been some awful performances — notably a 4-0 home defeat to Club Brugge in the Champions League — but Henry has also dealt with a huge injury crisis.He has been forced to pick teenagers with no experience while battling for precious points. Paradoxically, this is starting to have a positive effect and a semblance of team spirit — so lacking earlier in the season — is slowly becoming apparent. It also highlights the remarkable strength of Monaco’s notoriously good scouting network, which produced France star Kylian Mbappe.Against Amiens on Tuesday, French football got a glimpse of the immense potential of 17-year-old midfielder Han-Noah Massengo, whose quick feet, even quicker thinking, and boundless energy were priceless to a Monaco side desperate holding on at 1-0 before Falcao’s last-gasp penalty made it 2-0.Falcao’s first penalty came about after defender Benoit Badiashile— another 17-year-old — was upended after reacting quickly to a loose ball in the penalty area.Without Monaco’s crisis, those two may never have got such an early chance to show their precocious ability.BALOTELLI’S DROUGHTWhile Falcao is coming back into form, Nice striker Mario Balotelli’s slump continues.Balotelli has not scored in 10 league games this campaign, a far cry from the previous two seasons when he top-scored for Nice with 18 and 15, respectively.A failed summer move to Marseille seems to have affected Balotelli’s fitness and form.“Mario’s lacking confidence, you can tell by the way he receives the ball,” Vieira said. “We all need to get behind him: the club, the fans. We have to put him in positions where he gets his confidence back. He’s very important for us.”___More AP soccer: and Pugmire, The Associated Press read more

Maths anxiety may be fuelling a national crisis researchers say

More than three-quarters of children with high levels of maths anxiety are normal to high achievers The proportion of adults with functional maths skills equivalent to a GCSE grade C has dropped from 26 per cent in 2003 to only 22 per cent in 2011, according to the charity National Numeracy. Meanwhile, 57 per cent achieved the equivalent in functional literacy skills.Dr Denes Szucs, deputy director at Cambridge’s Centre for Neuroscience in Education and one of the report’s authors, said that there is a widespread misunderstanding that only low performing children suffer from maths anxiety.“This is actually a very frequent misconception that we have seen in decision makers,” he said. “They automatically assume people are anxious about maths because they are poor achievers.”In fact, more than three-quarters (77 per cent) of children with high levels of maths anxiety are normal to high achievers.  Dr Szucs went on: “Probably their maths anxiety will go unnoticed because their performance is good. But they are very anxious and in the long term their performance is suppressed.“This is a real danger here: these are children who are completely able to do maths at a normal level, but may keep away from it because they feel anxious.”The research, funded by the Nuffield Foundation, also found that girls have higher levels of maths anxiety than boys. Students who have the condition face a vicious circle, with their anxiety leading to poorer performance and poorer performance increasing anxiety. Maths anxiety is present from a young age, researchers found, but can develop as the child grows.Josh Hillman, director of education at the Nuffield Foundation which funded the research, said: “Mathematical achievement is valuable in its own right, as a foundation for many other subjects and as an important predictor of future academic outcomes, employment opportunities and even health.“Maths anxiety can severely disrupt students’ performance in the subject in both primary and secondary school.“But importantly – and surprisingly – this new research suggests that the majority of students experiencing maths anxiety have normal to high maths ability.” More than three-quarters of children with high levels of maths anxiety are normal to high achievers “Maths anxiety” may be fuelling a national crisis, Cambridge University researchers have said, as they find that one in ten children suffer from “despair and rage” at the subject.The number of children who experience maths anxiety is a “real concern”, according to academics from Cambridge’s Faculty of Education and its Centre for Neuroscience.Researchers surveyed 1,700 British pupils aged eight to 13 about their feelings towards the subject.They found that ten per cent of children suffered from maths anxiety, meaning they had “overwhelming negative emotions” towards the subject, ranging “from rage to despair”.Other emotions triggered by maths included feelings of apprehension, tension and frustration, while physical symptoms included butterflies, a racing heart or struggling to catch breath.The phenomenon of maths anxiety is characterised as a “general sense of feeling the subject is hard compared with other subjects”, leading to a subsequent lack or loss of confidence.  “The project investigated individuals’ attitudes towards mathematics because of what could be referred to as a ‘mathematics crisis’ in the UK,” researchers said.  “Many children and adults experience feelings of anxiety, apprehension, tension or discomfort when they are confronted by mathematics. This may be contributing to a relatively  low level of numeracy amongst UK adults.”   Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Xenophon wants privacy to prevail

first_imgSenator Nick Xenophon wants to introduce a Private Senator’s Bill that will ultimately remove the rights political parties have to the general public. The bill – which he will present to parliament in August – already has the support of the Greens and Tasmanian independent Andrew Wilkie. “If the Government and political parties are genuinely worried about a right to privacy, maybe they should stop using sophisticated voter tracking software to keep tabs on their constituents without their consent,” Senator Xenophon said. As it stands, political parties are exempt from certain areas of the Privacy Act and can access information about voters without their consent. The public themselves has no access to this information and no idea of what it is or how accurate it is. Both major parties operate voter-tracking software programs that compile significant amounts of personal information. “The current rules are stacked in favour of political parties and politicians,” Xenophon told AAP. “It’s an incredible double standard and an act of breathtaking hypocrisy for the major parties not to support this.” Senator Xenophon will also seek to amend the Electoral Act to include a ‘do not contact’ register for politicians and political parties which will act like the ‘do not call’ register for telemarketers. Voters will be able to have their details removed from the rolls provided to politicians and political parties. “People should have the right to stop politicians and political parties from using the information contained on the electoral role to target them with tax-payer funded political advertising,” Xenophon said. “This information can include a person’s name, date of birth, address and occupation.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

From the Newsroom Projects are special way to tell stories

first_img As I’ve written about before, newspapers have their own colorful lingo. One of the terms that you’ll hear frequently is “spot news.” These are the meat-and-potatoes stories about something that happened the day before: a car wreck, a school board meeting. I even wrote a spot news story this week about the Parks Foundation of Clark County’s annual luncheon.But just like meat and potatoes, a menu containing all spot news does not create a pleasing diet. That’s why we do special projects.Though not a newspaper term, we use it to describe anything that is out of the ordinary, specifically those that involve a lot of photography, video and page design. We’ve done a lot of these special projects over the last few years. One of the most memorable was the six-part series on former Vancouver pastor John Bishop. We did so many projects, in fact, that we sat down at the start of the year and vowed not to do too many of them at once because they are too much work.You can guess how that turned out.By my count we’ve had three in the last three weeks, if you include this Sunday’s planned feature on Austin Justin, a determined little boy whose dream is to play hockey, but was born with a genetic defect that made it impossible for him to walk, let alone skate. Photographer Alisha Jucevic has been following Austin for more than a year, and now he’s — well, I really enjoyed the follow-up story, and I think you will, too. Look for it in the morning.Two weeks ago, Alisha teamed up with reporter Patty Hastings for a special project about a group of monks who live in White Salmon, how they came to be there, how the community supports them and vice versa. And last Sunday, Calley Hair and Amanda Cowan presented the first in what we plan to be a year-long series about what it’s like to be 3 years old, featuring the irrepressible Tobias Adams.

No Senators vote in favor of OcasioCortezs Green New Deal

first_imgNo Senators vote in favor of Ocasio-Cortez’s, “Green New Deal” Posted: March 26, 2019 AP, March 26, 2019 Updated: 2:50 PMcenter_img WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate on Tuesday defeated a proposal to take up the Green New Deal as both parties shunned an opportunity to debate a comprehensive climate change plan offered by Democrats.Majority Republicans forced the vote as they seek to turn the Green New Deal into a wedge issue in the 2020 elections. Democrats called the GOP’s move a “sham” and said it carries its own political risk by mocking an issue that a growing number of Americans care deeply about.Senators voted 57-0 against a procedural motion to take up the nonbinding resolution, which calls for the U.S. to shift away from fossil fuels such as oil and coal and replace them with renewable sources such as wind and solar power.Four Democrats joined all 53 Senate Republicans in opposing the motion to take up the climate plan. Forty-three Democrats voted “present” to protest the GOP’s action. Democrats accused the GOP of quashing debate by blocking public hearings and expert testimony about the consequences of inaction on climate change.In shifting the U.S. economy away from fossil fuels, the Green New Deal calls for virtual elimination by 2030 of greenhouse gas emissions responsible for global warming.The plan has broad support among Democratic activists, and all six of the 2020 presidential contenders serving in the Senate have signed on as co-sponsors, putting it at the forefront of the party’s sprawling primary race.However, Democratic presidential candidate John Hickenlooper said Tuesday he opposes the Green New Deal. The former Colorado governor said the proposal sets “unachievable goals” and shuns the private sector.Republicans say the plan would devastate the economy and lead to a huge tax increase. They call it more evidence of the creep of “socialism” in the Democratic Party, along with “Medicare for All” and a sweeping elections reform package that would allow public financing of congressional campaigns.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky scheduled the vote on the Green New Deal, saying it would force Democrats to take a stand on a plan that “might sound like a neat idea in places like San Francisco or New York” but would result in communities across the country being “absolutely crushed.”By “basically outlawing the only sources of energy that working-class and middle-class families can actually afford,” the Green New Deal would “kill off entire domestic industries” and eliminate millions of jobs, McConnell said. The plan could lead to a spike in household electric bills of over $300 a month, he said.Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, called the Green New Deal “ridiculous” and displayed pictures of dinosaurs, cartoon characters and babies on the Senate floor. He said he was treating the plan “with the seriousness it deserves.”Lee’s remarks enraged Democrats, who called climate change deadly serious, citing recent floods in the Midwest, wildfires in the West and hurricanes in the South.“Climate change is not a joke,” said Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey, the bill’s lead Senate author. “Mocking it is shameful.”New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, one of a half-dozen senators seeking the Democratic nomination for president, said Republicans treat climate “as a game” and said Democrats “will not fall for this stunt.”Addressing climate change “should be our nation’s moonshot” in the 21st century, Gillibrand said, calling it a generational challenge similar to the race to the moon in the 1960s.“We don’t know if we can get to net-zero carbon emissions in 10 years, but why not try?” she said at a rally before the Senate vote.Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., said Democrats were being hypocritical by refusing to vote for their own plan. “I’ve never seen a bill sponsored by a dozen people who don’t want to vote on it,” he said.

Yamuna floods homes thousands shifted

first_imgNew Delhi: With floodwaters of the Yamuna having swamped their homes, people living on the banks of the swollen river are in despair with many having gone back to their villages, and around 14,000 shifted to relief camps. As monsoon rains pounded the upper reaches, neighbouring Haryana released water from the Hathini Kund dam flooding the homes of those living near the Yamuna’s banks. The water has been steadily rising since Sunday. Also Read – One arrested for firing outside Satna college in Madhya Pradesh Advertise With Us Those who have chosen to stay in relief camps are having to struggle with shifting whatever is left of their belongings to the temporary government shelters. Several farmers engaged in small-time farming near the Yamuna Khadar and Kisan Colony area in the national capital said they have lost all hopes of earning a livelihood with the rising Yamuna waters destroying their crops.

Now due to the water level rise in Yamuna, they have lost their standing green vegetables,” said Kashyap. According to a Delhi government official, close to 14,000 people living in low-lying areas along the Yamuna in Delhi were evacuated till Tuesday noon as the river flows at 206.08 metres and has crossed the danger mark. Advertise With Us The Yamuna is expected to get more water by late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning, a Flood and Control Department official said. Several ‘jhuggis’ in Yamuna Khadar and Kisan Colony have been inundated. The Delhi government has set up 46 relief camps with 2,120 tents having electricity, water, food and toilets across the city. Several people living in the area have also refused to move to relief camps set up by the Delhi government. An official present at the site told IANS that people are coming to relief camps but after having their meals they return to their houses which are half-submerged. “We vacated our houses after the authorities told us about the situation. I had been living for the last five years near Old Yamuna Bridge. Due to the sudden rise of the water level, we have lost many things in our home which we made with our hard-earned money,” Vikram Singh, a farmer, told IANS. The water discharged from the barrage — which provides drinking water to Delhi — normally takes 72 hours to reach the capital, the official said. Hundreds live along the banks of the Yamuna, and they are being moved to safer places since Sunday. “Till Tuesday, over 13,635 people from low-lying areas across the city have been shifted and the process is underway. More people will be shifted as we are expecting more water by late Tuesday night,” the official added. The river flows through five districts — North, North East, Shahdara East, Central, and South East — of Delhi.last_img read more

Preacher Finds a Fake God and a Kinder Hitler

first_imgStay on target 11 Forgotten Vertigo Comics That Would Make Awesome TV ShowsThe Greatest Romances in Comic Book History Preacher’s second season started off stronger than we ever could have hoped for after the first. We’ve had three plot-filled episodes with plenty of violent action to keep things fun. Eventually, the show had to pump the breaks, and now’s as good a time as any. Of course, the episode didn’t really feel much slower. All the little plot detours it explored were interesting and will be important later. They just didn’t have any payoff this episode, nor did they move the main story forward at all. But hey, it wasn’t any less fun, so who am I to complain?The most interesting story this week was Eugene’s. Where we got a brief glimpse of what Hell looked like last week, this episode spent considerably more time there. It turns out Hitler isn’t nearly as scary as you’d think he’d be. I guess 72 years in Hell will soften a person up. When a bully named Tyler starts picking on Eugene, Hitler stands up for him. When Eugene’s Hell door shuts and locks him out, Hitler offers Eugene his Hell, so he won’t get thrown in The Hole. (We’re never shown exactly what The Hole is, but we’re assured it’s a torture far worse than reliving your most painful memory over and over again.) Preacher loves making us feel uncomfortable by playing with our taboos. The fact that it successfully made us sympathize with Adolf Hitler feels like a series-appropriate combination of hilarious and messed up.Noah Taylor as Adolf Hitler, Ian Colletti as Eugene (Photo Credit: Skip Bolen/AMC)Eugene’s friendship with Hitler doesn’t last long. When his Hell memory machine breaks down, the warden warns Eugene that niceness and loyalty will not be tolerated. “This is Hell. Act accordingly,” she says. So, when Tyler leads the rest of Eugene’s Hell block mates in beating up Hitler, Eugene almost comes to his rescue. Then, he remembers what the warden said, and realizes that even in Hell, throwing your lot in with Hitler isn’t the smartest move. He enthusiastically joins in the beatdown. The point of this storyline, aside from giving us insight into the prison-like bureaucracy of Hell, is to turn Eugene/Arseface into the person we know from the comics. In season one, he was a sweet yet flawed kid. Then Jesse accidentally sent him to Hell. When he comes out, he’s not going to be that nice kid anymore. He will escape Hell, and he’ll become a major problem for Jesse when he does.The rest of the episode was divided between Tulip’s dealings with Victor and Jesse’s continued search for God. Well, an actor who played him. While watching TV, Cassidy sees an old PSA for victims of Hurricane Katrina (starring Frankie Muniz!) that features the fake God from last season. Turns out he’s a local New Orleans actor. They track down the guy’s agent and learn that the actor disappeared after his last audition. The one where he played God. After Cassidy hilariously pretends to be a Game of Thrones casting director, (“Even Dinklage flies Business”), they get hold of the actor’s audition tape. For now, that’s about as far as they get. Jesse watches it over and over again, noting that it ends with the actor getting the part, getting shot and being sent to heaven. He swears he must be missing something, which is the only indication we get that this detour will be worthwhile. Not that I was itching to watch Jesse tour more jazz clubs, but this hunt for the actor didn’t get him any closer to God, either. That line about missing something at least promises that the tape will be important in the future. We’ll just have to hope it pays off eventually.Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer (Photo Credit: Skip Bolen/AMC)Jesse’s search is interrupted by Cassidy finally breaking down and admitting that Tulip may be in trouble. He’s been trying to hint that Jesse should be worried all episode, but Jesse’s been too consumed by his search to pay attention. Finally, he comes out with it, and Jesse tracks down Victor’s house. Tulip’s part of the episode was spent building up to this climactic scene. Tulip was held captive in the home of the apparent gangster she betrayed. She walked around the house to find that everyone hated her. She tried to fight her way out, but ended up getting knocked out by Victor’s torturer. Now, Jesse comes to the rescue, using The Word to make everyone hold still. We get a wonderful, slightly silly fight scene with the torturer, who’s use of earbuds and loud music make him impervious to The Word. It’s the kind of scrappy fight scene we’re used to seeing from Tulip, and it’s a hell of a lot of fun watching Jesse scramble around a workshop for weapons.It’s a good thing the episode ends with such an amazing fight. After an episode fully of interesting mini-plots and no major developments, it gave us some necessary catharsis right before leaving us on a cliffhanger. It turns out Victor is Tulip’s husband. So that’s why she couldn’t get married at the casino. Oh, and remember the Saint of Killers. He’s finally reached, New Orleans. So those are two difficult things Jesse will have to deal with next week. Even though the plot didn’t move forward much at all, this episode of Preacher was still a fun detour. It helps that we know these things will be important in the future. The episode still felt like the show was getting all its pieces in place, but it still managed to make that fun to watch. I still can’t get over the fact that they almost made you feel sorry for Hitler. Almost. Even if he was nice to Eugene, I can’t say I’d resist an opportunity to get a few good kicks in at der fuhrer’s face.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

first_imgBillionaire investor Wilbur Ross is expected to be easily confirmed as U.S. Commerce Secretary on Monday, clearing President Donald Trump’s top trade official to start work on renegotiating trade relationships with China and Mexico.The share of WL Ross & Co LLC in Bank of Cyprus will remain unaffected should the appointment of Ross as Secretary of Commerce be confirmed, the company said last month.The company, which – participated in Bank of Cyprus’ 2014 €1bn capital increase, led by Ross, added that Trump’s choice for secretary of commerce, “will remain actively involved with the Bank and is in discussions with the Bank regarding Wilbur Ross’s replacement on the Board should he be confirmed”.“WL Ross & Co. is pleased with the progress that Bank of Cyprus’s management team is making regarding the execution of its strategy and looks forward to continuing to work together,” the company said.Monday’s vote will insert a major new voice into Trump’s economic team, one that strongly influenced his criticism of the North American Free Trade Agreement and a now-scrapped Asia-Pacific trade deal.Ross’ nomination is scheduled for a vote around 7 p.m. (0000 GMT). It was advanced by the Senate in a 66-31 procedural vote on Feb. 17, signaling solid support from Democrats.Part of that support stems from praise that Ross has drawn from the United Steelworkers union for his efforts in restructuring several bankrupt steel companies in the early 2000s, saving numerous plants and thousands of jobs.But he also has come under criticism from some left-wing groups as another billionaire in a Trump cabinet that claims to be focused on the working class, and for being a “vulture” investor who has eliminated jobs. Reuters reported last month that Ross’s companies have shipped some 2,700 jobs overseas since 2004.The 79-year-old investor will oversee a sprawling agency with nearly 44,000 employees responsible for combating the dumping of imports below cost into U.S. markets, collecting census and critical economic data, weather forecasting, fisheries management, promoting the United States to foreign investors and regulating the export of sensitive technologies.While Commerce secretaries rarely take the spotlight in Washington, Ross is expected to play an outsize role in pursuing Trump’s campaign pledge to slash U.S. trade deficits and bring manufacturing jobs back to America.Trump has designated Ross to lead the renegotiation of NAFTA with Mexico and Canada, a job that in past administrations would have been left to the U.S. Trade Representative’s office.Ross will join other major players on the economic team, including U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Gary Cohn, director of the White House National Economic Council.Some experts said Ross could serve as a counterweight to advisers such as Peter Navarro, the University of California-Irvine economics professor who heads Trump’s newly created White House National Trade Council. Navarro has advocated a controversial 45 percent across-the-board tariff on imports from China that Trump threatened during his campaign.“I expect that Ross will quickly become the administration’s chief trade spokesman, and that Navarro’s influence will be felt indirectly, rather than through public statements or testimony,” said Gary Hufbauer, a senior fellow and trade expert at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.At his confirmation hearing, Ross downplayed chances of a trade war with China, while calling it the “most protectionist” large economy. He vowed to level the playing field for U.S. companies competing with Chinese imports and those trying to do business in China’s highly restricted economy.Ross, estimated by Forbes to be worth $2.9 billion, built his fortune in the late 1990s and early 2000s by investing in distressed companies in steel, coal, textiles and auto parts, restructuring them and often benefiting from tariff protections put in place by the Commerce Department.You May LikeHeart Failure Treatment | Search AdsThe Early Signs Of Heart Failure.
