Two Moroccan Girls Represent Morocco in Le Plumier dOr

By Aya SoulimaniMarrakech – Out of the 15,000 candidates that applied to Le Plumier d’Or, only 60 received awards. Two of these students, Yasmine Laarabi from collège Anatole France and Reda El Fahdi from lycée Lyautey in Casablanca, proudly represented Morocco.Founded in 1997, Le Plumier d’Or is an international examination of the French language organized for eighth graders by Défense de la Langue Française (DLF), whose main goal is to preserve and protect the French language. This examination is held in honor of La Semaine de la Francophonie and is sponsored by the Senate, the Navy, and many other patrons, such as Les Belles Lettres, Tours de France and Editions du Triomphe.In order for these Moroccan laureates to participate, they had to fulfil certain qualifications. First, they had to be in 8th grade, which is called the “4e année de college” in France. It was also mandatory for their class to participate as whole in order to take the examination. Throughout the exam, which was held in January, their French teachers had to supervise them and register each student in the class as candidates in the competition.Ms. Laarabi and Mr. El Fahdi were part of the selected 60 laureates, a grou[ which included brilliant students from countries such as the UAE, UK, India, France, India and Germany. In order to be considered excellent French speakers, they first had to take the exam, which had a grammar section (out of 70 points) and an essay section (out of 30 points). Their French professor was responsible for grading the grammar section. The tests with the three highest scores would then be sent to a committee in France, assigned by the DLF, that would be responsible for grading the writing/essay section.In the 11th of March 2016, Yasmine and Reda, along with the other 58 laureates, were sent letters congratulating them for being the winners of 2016 Plumier d’Or examinations and inviting them, along with their teachers, to the Senate’s ceremony in Paris in order to collect their prizes. The prizes consist of books, games, and watches. The ceremony was held May 25, and the laureates got their diplomas at the beginning of this passing June. read more

Rio Tinto abandons sales of Pacific aluminum assets over market conditions

Rio Tinto says weak market conditions have forced it to abandon a nearly two-year effort to sell a portion of its aluminum assets.The mining giant announced Thursday that divestment of its Pacific aluminum assets “is not possible in the current environment.” The six assets in Australia and New Zealand will be reintegrated into the Montreal-based Rio Tinto Alcan division.“We continue to make good progress to transform our businesses through divesting or closing non-core assets, business improvement and targeted investment,” said chief executive Sam Walsh.“But we need to do more to improve performance and returns.”Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO) said its net earnings plummeted to US$1.72 billion in the first half of the year, from $5.88 billion a year earlier.Adjusting for one-time items, earnings fell 18 per cent to US$4.2 billion, it said.Revenue decreased to $26.6 billion from $27.8 billion a year ago.Despite the declines, the company has increased its interim dividend 15 per cent to 83.5 cents US per share.Rio Tinto said it has cut US$1.5 billion in costs and cut 2,200 net positions over the past year after adding 1,800 new jobs to support its iron ore expansion.Walsh said the medium-term economic outlook remains volatile, with many outcomes possible. Chinese economic growth has slowed and is unlikely to recover significantly in the second half.“We do not expect a hard landing,” he said.“This global economic volatility only serves to highlight the need to build a stronger and more resilient business.”The results were announced less than a day after Rio Tinto Alcan said weak metal prices forced it to close its smelter in Shawinigan, Que., more than a year ahead of schedule.Half the aluminum production will be immediately curtailed, with the remaining 50,000 tonnes stopping by the end of November.About 60 workers in the casting house will remain employed through the end of 2014. All 425 employees will continue to receive salaries for a year in accordance with collective agreements.

Demo contractor accused in Philadelphia building collapse convicted of 6 manslaughter counts

PHILADELPHIA – A cut-rate demolition contractor was found guilty of manslaughter Monday, more than two years after a towering wall fell on a busy thrift store, killing six people.A jury convicted Griffin Campbell of six counts of involuntary manslaughter, rejecting the third-degree murder charges sought by prosecutors who said Campbell ignored warnings of an imminent collapse.Campbell described himself as a scapegoat for the architect overseeing the demolition of a seedy downtown block, and in his testimony last week called the collapse “an accident.”However, prosecutors said he controlled the worksite and lied about how the demolition was being done. Their experts said he caused the unsupported wall to fall on the adjacent thrift store by cutting corners on the job in June 2013.One survivor lost both legs after spending 13 hours trapped in the rubble. A dozen other people were injured.Subcontractor Sean Benschop testified that he was using heavy equipment nearby when the wall crashed onto the Salvation Army store, instead of doing the delicate job by hand.“When I saw the building like that, I should have walked away,” Benschop testified, explaining why he pleaded guilty in the case. “I had my family to feed and I had bills to pay.”He pleaded guilty to six counts of involuntary manslaughter, and faces a maximum 10 to 20 years in prison. Campbell turned down the chance to forge a similar plea. He could face a much stiffer sentence if the manslaughter counts are run consecutively.Campbell was also convicted of aggravated assault and risking a catastrophe. His lawyer tried to shift the blame to building owner Richard Basciano, project architect Plato Marinakos and others. Basciano, once dubbed the Porn King of Times Square, wanted the wall brought down quickly so he could redevelop the strip of low-end stores.Campbell had gutted the support beams and joists to sell them for salvage, leaving the four-story walls unstable, prosecutors said.Both Campbell and Benschop had prior prison records, but were trying to support families through contracting and demolition work. Campbell’s $112,000 bid for the work was a fraction of the other bids.The victims included two young artist friends dropping off donations, a woman buying clothes to send to her native Sierra Leone and a woman working her first day at the store.The collapse led city officials to revamp the requirements needed to get a demolition permit. A city inspector who had checked on the project last spring killed himself days after the collapse.The victims’ families have filed lawsuits against Basciano, the Salvation Army, Campbell and others. City treasurer Nancy Winkler and her husband, Jay Bryan, who lost their 24-year-old daughter Anne Bryan and attended the three-week trial, said in a statement Monday that they will now focus on “the fault of everyone involved, not just one individual.”Campbell’s lawyer agreed.“The civil litigation will … tell the complete and true story of all the participants and all the players,” lawyer William Hobson said Monday, “layers … far above Griffin Campbell and Sean Benschop.” Demo contractor accused in Philadelphia building collapse convicted of 6 manslaughter counts by Maryclaire Dale, The Associated Press Posted Oct 19, 2015 12:41 pm MDT Last Updated Oct 19, 2015 at 9:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

In Brazoria County Ranchers Biggest PostStorm Battle Is Often A Fight against

first_imgMichael Marks/Texas StandardCattle stand in a Brazoria County pasture surrounded by Snow on the Mountain and other weeds.Up and down the Gulf Coast, Texans are still trying to get back to where they were before Hurricane Harvey. Some have had to rebuild from the ground up. For others, the trouble is with the ground itself.Fifty miles south of Houston in Brazoria County, Jessica Chase and Brady Stark are examining a piece of grass they found in Stark’s pasture.“This came in with Harvey. It’s a summer annual weed and it can reach up to three-and-a-half feet tall – yours are getting close,” Chase says.Chase is a Texas A&M Agrilife extension agent for Brazoria County. One of her jobs is to help landowners like Stark keep their pastures in good shape: identifying weeds like the Pennsylvania Smartweed she and Stark are looking at, and suggesting herbicides and fertilizers.And that’s important work in Brazoria County. It’s an exceptionally green place, where people raise cattle and horses, rice and sorghum. Stark’s been here since 1995. Over that time, he’s worked hard to keep his pastures in good shape for the cattle he raises. And they were in good shape until Hurricane Harvey.“After Harvey it was like, about a foot to maybe 16 inches deep. All over. I had water in the barns, but not in the house,” Stark says.His cattle were fine, but the pastures sat underwater for two weeks. They were caked in mud for another month after that. And once the mud washed off, the weeds came. Stark’s been able to get rid of a lot of them, but a ride around his property shows there’s still plenty left – with new species continuing to pop up. As we drive around to the backside of his pond, something catches Chase’s eye.“Did you have this thistle before Brady?” Chase asks.Chase is talking about a patch of plants that all have thin, spiny stems with equally prickly bulbs on top.“Now that you mention it I’ve seen several patches of this too,” Stark says.“I’ve seen several patches of it around. It is a thistle, I believe it’s blessed milk thistle. So that’s another one that’s been popping up also,” Chase says.Rains from Hurricane Harvey acted like a conveyer belt for weeds. As rivers, creeks and bayous breached their banks, they carried plant material with them. The water sitting over pastures like Stark’s became a soupy slurry of seeds.“Basically whatever your neighbors had that you worked so hard to keep off of your land – or the neighbor two miles up the road – is now on your property because that water just floated it all across,” Chase says. “So basically everything that everybody had in the county is mixed all over the place.”Repairing pastures is expensive and time-consuming. But if you’re trying to raise livestock, you’ve got to do it. Cattle and horses usually won’t eat weeds, and even if they did, they wouldn’t get nearly the nutritional value they would from eating grass. Some weeds, like Snow on the Mountain – a species that has thrived after Harvey – are even toxic to cattle.Now many pastures affected by the storm have recovered. But others are still in bad shape, maybe too far gone to be salvaged. As I was driving around Brazoria County, I stopped to take a closer look at a property just outside Angleton, the county seat. The place was surrounded by a barbed wire fence and had a cattle guard leading up to the driveway. There are no cows. And the reason for that is that weeds have completely and totally taken over the pastures. All the grassy area around the house, which I would estimate probably comprises 15 to 20 acres, it is entirely weeds.Some of them came up to my waist, others were over my head. It’s a fate that Kevin Reifel’s been trying to avoid on his own land. He drove me over to take a look at some property between the San Bernard and Brazos rivers. He keeps a few horses on it, and he and his brother *used to raise cattle there too.“This was our main pasture and we have sold all the cows off of it,” Reifel’s says.The plot that was once thick with healthy Bermuda grass is now empty except for scrubby, spiny stands of weeds in between patches of mud. Reifel’s brother’s house flooded during the storm. He’s building a new one – this time raised up on 12 foot beams. But they had to sell their cattle after Harvey because they couldn’t take on both rebuilding a house and a pasture. To get it back in order, they’ll have to start over: till up the field, spray herbicides for all the weeds, and then replant the grass. Reifel knows better than most how much that will cost. He owns the local feed and ranch supply store in the city of Brazoria, so he’s had a big part in getting people what they need to get back to normal.“Grass seed, grass seed, grass seed – that a lot. Insecticide, herbicides, and feed. So just about everything that I sell, they’ve been buying,” Reifel says.Harvey’s been a boon for Reifel’s business he wishes never happened. In his part of Texas, the struggle against weeds and loss of good grass could go on for years. Because even though you might kill a weed above ground, it could still be alive below the surface. So for people like Brady Stark, getting back to normal will take time…“But I’ll get back. Just don’t know when,” says Brady Stark. Sharelast_img read more

MPs banned from attending medical cannabis conference

first_imgMPs invited by a Swedish medical cannabis company to visit their facilities in Zurich were forbidden to go by House president Demetris Syllouris on Thursday,on the grounds the trip may influence their vote on the upcoming medical cannabis bill.The invitation for the all-expenses-paid trip to Zurich on November 19-21 was sent to the House health committee, which is deliberating the bill seeking to allow the cultivation and distribution of medical cannabis. The bill is due before the House plenum for a vote by the beginning of December at the latest.According to media reports, the specific Swedish company is interested in obtaining one of the two licences, valid for 15 years, included in the bill for the cultivation and distribution of medical cannabis in Cyprus, and to invest in cultivation facilities, should the bill be approved by the plenum.In view of this, Syllouris forbade the MPs to take the trip to Zurich, as it may influence their judgement in the upcoming voting, especially since the trip is just a few days prior.On Wednesday, the ethics committee, in the presence of Syllouris, decided that new and tougher laws aiming at greater transparency over MPs possible conflicts of interest will be drawn up.Medicinal cannabis is expected to be given on prescription to patients suffering from chronic painful conditions associated with cancer, HIV, degenerative diseases of the motor system, rheumatic diseases, neuropathy and glaucoma, among others.

cache of 134 million records dating from 1950 to 2016 obtained by the German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung and shared with the Washington-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists Having to police the vast amount of content on their websites would be too burdensome they said; smaller sites without big legal teams would face overwhelming liability and who knew what unforeseen lawsuits would be made possible by changing a law known as "the bedrock of the internet"But now "Big Tech" whose opposition was anticipated to be a major stumbling block to amending the law has mostly backed down After working with Senate staff members to obtain what they see as important changes to the language of the bill the Internet Association announced late Friday Nov 3 that it supports the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act also known as SESTAAlso Friday the two Democratic senators from California who had not weighed in on the bill Kamala D Harris and Dianne Feinstein both announced their support for it Some had thought that pressure from California-based Internet companies might sway them but ultimately they endorsed the measure removing yet another potential hurdle to passageThe Senate bill and a similar one in the House were inspired by the numerous court victories won by Backpagecom an online classified ads site that hosts massive advertising for prostitution including an unknown percentage of children being trafficked by adult pimpsBackpage has successfully cited the Communications Decency Act which protects websites from liability for posts by third parties to evade both criminal prosecution and civil lawsuits As attorney general of California Harris launched a criminal case against Backpage for prostitution and it was thrown out by a judge who cited the Communications Decency ActThe Senate’s subcommittee on investigations sparked congressional action when it found that Backpage was editing ads to remove references to underage prostitutes but allowing the ads to remain online Then in July The Washington Post revealed that Backpage was actively soliciting ads from prostitutes on other websites and creating new ads for those prostitutes so that they could post on Backpage with just one clickSome members of Congress called for the Justice Department to investigate Backpage for seemingly creating illegal content not just hosting it And some opponents of the new bill cited The Post story as evidence that Backpage could be prosecuted under the existing law with no need to amend the law and possibly open up unforeseen areas of civil and criminal liability After the bill was introduced tech lobbyists worked Capitol Hill trying to drum up opposition Google issued a statement saying the proposed bill "would be a disaster" and "would actually hinder the fight against sex trafficking"But members of the tech community worked with Senate Commerce Committee staff to tweak the language of the bill which is scheduled for markup Wednesday One of the keys was the definition of "participation in a venture" in an anti-sex-trafficking statute which courts have found did not include internet sites hosting illegal content The proposed bill originally defined participation as "knowing conduct by an individual or entity by any means that assists supports or facilitates a violation" of sex trafficking lawsInternet companies thought the phrase "by any means" had the potential to be broadly interpreted when analyzing a website’s actions The newly amended bill changes the definition of participation to simply "knowingly assisting supporting or facilitating a violation" of sex trafficking laws Senate staff members saidThe changes to the bill also amend the standard by which state prosecutors can seek to charge or sue websites requiring them to meet the federal standard including the new definition above rather than those established by state law which can vary widelyMichael Beckerman president of the Internet Association which counts Google Twitter and Microsoft among its members said in a statement that "Important changes made to SESTA will grant victims the ability to secure the justice they deserve allow internet platforms to continue their work combating human trafficking and protect good actors in the ecosystem"Beckerman said the association was looking "forward to working with the House and Senate as SESTA moves through the legislative process to ensure that our members are able to continue their work to fight exploitation"Sen Rob Portman R-Ohio and other members of the Commerce Committee welcomed the endorsement from the Internet Association "I’m pleased we’ve reached an agreement" Portman said in a statement "We’ve reached an agreement to further clarify the intent of the bill and advance this important legislation"John Simpson of Consumer Watchdog which has tracked how big Internet companies have aggressively fought changes to the Communications Decency Act said: "We’re quite happy they came on board We wish they’d done it sooner" He said the grilling that executives from Facebook Twitter and Google absorbed last week during hearings over Russian interference in last year’s election may have pushed the association into endorsing the bill"I think that’s what pushed the Internet Association into saying ‘OK we better get on board’ " Simpson saidNot every internet group is on board NetChoice another internet trade group that has brought lawsuits against state laws imposing sales tax mandates and privacy restrictions used former congressman Chris Cox who co-wrote the Communications Decency Act to testify against the bill in the House last month and remains opposed to itSteve DelBianco president of NetChoice said Monday that it was "good to see the progress made from collaborative efforts on all sides" but that the group still favored using existing laws to go after online traffickers as Cox advocated "Federal prosecutors are apparently having trouble bringing sex traffickers to justice – even though they’re explicitly unhindered by Section 230″ of the Communications Decency Act DelBianco said "We need stronger legal remedies than just
