Despite the Ban Plastic Bags Still Used in Morocco Ministry Review

Rabat – Two years after the use of plastic bags was banned from medium and large distribution companies and convenience stores, plastic bags are still commonly used in Morocco.According to Minister of Industry Hafid El Alamy, plastic bags have not been completely eradicated because new sources of plastic bags have emerged, such as illegal manufacturing workshops, smuggling, and illegal distribution. “We notice a kind of awareness, but also a change in the understanding of the problem of plastic bags, but there is still a long way to go.” The Minister also spoke of the importance of awareness-raising among citizens towards the dangers of plastic bags. On the other hand, he said the ban’s impact has been “extremely satisfactory and encouraging.” Medium and large distribution companies are exclusively using substitute products he mentioned, in a meeting with industry stakeholders and civil society representatives on Tuesday, July 3.According to a review of control and support operations published by online outlet Media24 after the meeting, the Ministry of Industry recorded 3,826 offenses among 682,467 inspections it carried out.Approximately MAD 5 billion in fines was imposed on 757 judgments. More than 750 tons of plastic bags were seized in workshops and outlets. More than 89 tons were collected at border inspection posts.The Ministry has made two separate funds available to industrialists to dispose of plastic bags: a conversion fund of MAD 200 billion for companies impacted by the ban and a business competitiveness support fund called “Imtiaz” (“excellence”) for investment projects in alternative industries.The conversion fund included 25 beneficiary companies, 18 of which changed their business to manufacture substitutes to plastic bags. Others continued to make bags, but began to make them biodegradable to comply with the law. As for the “Imtiaz” fund, 19 investment projects received money from the program, at a total of MAD 52 billion.There have been 250 suppliers of substitute products in Morocco since the ban took effect. This was considered a positive result compared to the ministry’s expectations.Nonwoven fabric bags: 3.2 billion bags / yearWoven bags: 1.2 billion bags / yearPaper bags: 5 billion bags / yearFreezer bags: 50 million bags / yearGarbage bags: 60 million bags / yearBags for wet products (non-woven and laminated): 60 million bags / yearThermoforming products: 1500 tons per yearAs one roams the streets of Morocco and its shops and traditional souks, one notices that plastic bags are still used by grocery stores and street vendors in Morocco. Shops dedicated to selling plastic bags are still open as well.In addition, many Moroccan customers are still using plastic bags. They are easy to use and merchants offer them for free, unlike alternatives which are considered expensive in reference to the purchasing power of Moroccan citizens. read more

Presidents decision on foreign judges in war probe will be final

President Maithripala Sirisena’s decision on the involvement of foreign judges in the investigation on incidents related to the war will be the final decision, a Government Minister said today.Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe said that the President has made clear foreign judges will not be invited to be part of the domestic accountability process. President Maithripala Sirisena recently emphasized that he will not allow any foreign court, judge or organization to interfere in the internal administration and judiciary in the country. He also said he will not allow any national or international activity to take place which challenges the freedom, independence and the territorial integrity of the country.Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera however had said that no final decision had been taken and that everything will depend on the outcome of an ongoing consultation process. Several countries, at the recently concluded UN Human Rights Council session in Geneva, had called for international participation in the accountability process.Earlier this year UN Secretary General Ban ki-moon had also called for international participation in the judicial mechanism when investigating the war in Sri Lanka.Ban ki-moon’s spokesman Stéphane Dujarric had said that the Secretary‑General understands that the discussions in Sri Lanka on the transitional justice mechanism, including the judicial component, are ongoing. However he said the UN Secretary General remains hopeful that the Sri Lankan Government will stand by its commitments and fully implement a resolution on Sri Lanka adopted by the UN Human Rights Council last year which notes the need for international participation. (Colombo Gazette) He said that when the President takes a stand and the Prime Minister also expresses a similar view that is the final decision and the matter is closed. read more

UN agencies call for better protection of children working in fishing industry

Governments must take measures to protect children from harmful work in small-scale fisheries and aquaculture, two United Nations agencies stressed today, noting that many are exposed to hazardous working conditions even when their countries have signed treaties to protect them.In a guidance document, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) said many children working in the fishing industry remain exposed to unacceptable working conditions, requiring them to dive to unsafe depths – often at night – work long hours in unsanitary processing plants, and handle toxic chemicals and dangerous equipment or gear. Girls working in fish processing depots are also at risk of sexual abuse. “Work of this kind is intolerable,” said the FAO Assistant Director-General for Fisheries and Aquaculture, Árni M. Mathiesen. “It affects children’s health and learning abilities, and often prevents them from attending school.” Constance Thomas, Director of ILO’s International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour, stressed the importance of ensuring that agreements designed to protect children from child labour are implemented, as many times countries have signed treaties but failed to translate them into national legislation.FAO and ILO estimate that around 130 million children work in agriculture, livestock and fisheries – accounting for 60 per cent of child labour worldwide. There is no aggregate data showing how many children work in fisheries and aquaculture, but case study evidence suggests child labour is a problem especially in informal small and medium-sized fishing and aquaculture enterprises and in family operations.“Children are more at risk than adults from safety and health hazards because their bodies are not yet fully developed,” said the Director of the Gender, Equity and Rural Employment Division of FAO, Rob Vos. “Programmes to reduce poverty and improve fishing technologies and practices will take away the need for child labour.”A major challenge is addressing the root causes of child labour – poverty and food insecurity. Promoting decent work opportunities for adults, social protection and, free education with school feeding programmes can lead to sustainable solutions, the agencies said.FAO and ILO are urging compliance with international rules to protect children working in the industry. These include the ILO’s Minimum Age Convention, and its Worst Forms of Child Labour and Work in Fishing conventions, the Convention on the Rights of the Child and FAO’s Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries. Working with fishing communities is also essential to ensure that children receive adequate care and education, and are not involved in hazardous activities, the agencies added. read more

Not enough done to reintegrate victims of human trafficking UNbacked report warns

“Any support offered to victims of trafficking needs to be given in a way that restores a sense of control for the victims over their own lives,” the regional project manager for the UN Inter-agency Project on Human Trafficking (UNIAP), said of the study, commissioned by the Governments of the Coordinated Mekong Ministerial Initiative against Trafficking (COMMIT) – Cambodia, China, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.“When support is provided in a way that does not respect the will of the victims, or is even provided against their will, this may result in further trauma and a continuation of their victimization.”She called the report “an important first step in understanding the reintegration experiences of trafficking victims,” which will help inform service providers and policymakers on how to improve assistance “to ensure that trafficking victims in the region can overcome their experiences and go on to lead happy, healthy and productive lives.”While estimates of the number of trafficked persons vary considerably, it is widely agreed that those reached and assisted is a small fraction of the total. The Mekong region compared to many other parts of the world, contains very diverse patterns of human trafficking – internal and cross-border; highly organized or small-scale; sex and labour, through both formal and informal recruitment mechanisms. Examples range from men, women, children and families trafficked into Thailand from Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia for forced prostitution, domestic servitude, or forced labour in sweatshops, fishing boats, construction sites, plantations, or farms Vietnamese girls and young women trafficked for sexual exploitation and virginity selling in Cambodia.Children from Cambodian or Myanmar border areas and rural Vietnam or China are trafficked to beg or sell flowers on the streets of larger cities, while women and girls from Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam are increasingly being found in forced prostitution or domestic servitude in Malaysia. Trafficked Thai women are also found in the sex trade in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, South Africa, the Middle East, the United States and Western Europe.The report – After Trafficking: Experiences and Challenges in the (Re)integration of Trafficked Persons in the Greater Mekong Sub-region – was prepared by the NEXUS Institute, an independent international human rights research and policy centre. with support from UNIAP, UN and civil society partners dealing with the issue of human trafficking.Researchers travelled throughout the region to conduct in-depth interviews with over 250 survivors of trafficking, collecting their stories and experiences to give victims a voice as they overcome the horror of their experiences and piece their lives back together.One of the key features and most damaging aspects of human trafficking is that it robs individuals of their freedom of will and action. It has a devastating effect on the lives of its victims and their families, which is further compounded by numerous factors as victims attempt to return to their lives without receiving assistance, or when they receive poor quality or ineffective assistance.The report found that that too few trafficked persons receive what could be reasonably termed comprehensive care.” Others decline assistance, sometimes in the face of acute need, because it does not meet their needs or mesh with their life situation after trafficking. Still others receive assistance in programmes where the quality and scope are inadequate. Issues of discrimination, maltreatment and substandard care are also present. read more

As South Sudan fighting intensifies UN rights chief warns of persistent impunity

South Sudan’s ongoing conflict began in December 2013 and has been marked by brutal violence against civilians and deepening suffering across the country. Some 119,000 people are sheltered in UN compounds there while the Organization estimates that the number of people in need for 2015 will include an anticipated 1.95 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) and a projected 293,000 refugees.In a press release, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein warned that for more than 17 months, millions of people across South Sudan had been “senselessly suffering through an entirely man-made catastrophe” which has robbed more than two million people of their homes and livelihoods and plunged and entire nation into violent instability.“Over the past few weeks, the opposing parties have actually managed to make a terrible situation much, much worse,” Mr. Zeid declared. “I shudder to imagine how much more the humanitarian situation can worsen with the onset of the rainy season. The unrelenting, indefensible conflict in South Sudan should enrage the conscience of each and every one of us.”In recent weeks, the fighting in the country has worsened considerably with reports of widespread killings, rapes, abductions and the burning and destruction of towns and villages throughout South Sudan’s Unity state. In addition, UN human rights monitors have been denied access to various sites in the State by members of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLM/A) as they sought to verify the reports. Mr. Zeid urged the authorities to allow such access. “Such persistent impunity has left many with unresolved grievances that are easily mobilized for renewed violence and revenge attacks,” the High Commissioner continued. “The fight against such impunity must be a priority if any peace in South Sudan is to hold.”Mr. Zeid further warned the parties to the conflict that they must take all feasible measures to prevent harm to civilian lives and infrastructure, including personnel and premises of the United Nations and humanitarian agencies. Earlier in the week, the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon underscored that the renewed fighting between the SPLM/A and opposition and allied groups is unacceptable – part of a series of violations of the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement signed by the parties on 23 January 2014, and undermines the ongoing Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) efforts to find a political solution to the conflict.The Secretary-General called upon President Salva Kiir and former Vice-President Riek Machar to immediately cease all military operations and reminded them of their obligations to protect civilians under international human rights and humanitarian law, after two mortar bombs landed within the compound managed by the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) on Tuesday. read more

Greater operational efficiency with tool management by RFID tracking

first_imgToolHound, a global supplier of tool tracking systems, explains that the ToolHound tool and equipment management system is helping a large diamond mining company in Canada maximize efficiency, security and productivity with RFID tool tracking technology. The mine was faced with the challenge of tracking and securing mining tools that are in use round the clock. Because workers require 24/7 access to the equipment, staffing a full-time tool and equipment room attendant was not practical. However, the company needed to protect its investment in valuable tools. The mine selected ToolHound’s secure RFID tracking solution for mining, deploying the ToolHound SecureCrib™ kiosk. The fully automated ToolHound tool inventory system allows workers to quickly check out and return the equipment they need from the unmanned kiosk, and each employee is responsible for the tools they use.“Tracking metal tools that are typically covered in dirt requires quick and reliable RFID technology, particularly when there is no tool attendant on site to verify the check-out process,” said Dean Perry, President of ToolHound. “ToolHound provides real-time tool tracking and management for convenient access without sacrificing security, reducing tool loss and increasing productivity.”Mining tools are RFID tagged with Xerafy Nano RFID-on-metal tags and Metalcraft Standard RFID tags. The ToolHound SecureCrib kiosk employs an Impinj xPortal gateway reader and touch screen monitor. With the easy-to-use touch screen kiosk, a worker simply scans their badge and chooses whether they are checking out or returning inventory, then the xPortal gateway scans the items and displays them on the computer screen. The worker confirms that the list matches their inventory to ensure accountability.last_img read more

Sanofi une solution de télémédecine pour les diabétiques

first_imgSanofi : une solution de télémédecine pour les diabétiquesLa filiale française du groupe pharmaceutique Sanofi a annoncé mardi qu’elle allait prendre part au développement d’une nouvelle solution de suivi pour les personnes diabétiques. Baptisée Diabeo, cette solution fonctionnerait sous forme de télémédecine et serait prévue pour 2014. C’est un projet qui pourrait faciliter la vie de tous les personnes diabétiques. Mardi, la division Sanofi a annoncé avoir signé un accord de collaboration avec le Centre d’étude et de recherches pour mettre au point un meilleur traitement du diabète (CERITD) et la société éditrice de logiciels médicaux Voluntis. Le but : développer une nouvelle solution de suivi pour les personnes diabétiques qui passerait par de la télémédecine.  À lire aussiCes instruments médicaux de l’ancienne époque vont vous effrayerBaptisée Diabeo, cette solution serait en fait “constitué de 3 systèmes intelligents”, a expliqué Sanofi. Le premier consistera en une “application smartphone qui permettra au patient d’avoir une plus grande autonomie grâce à un ajustement simple des doses d’insuline en fonction de sa glycémie, de son alimentation, et de son activité physique”. Ensuite, Diabeo fournira également un suivi médical plus régulier en transmettant par internet à l’équipe soignante “des données quotidiennes de glycémie et doses d’insuline enregistrées et affichées dans un carnet électronique”. Enfin, cette solution de télémédecine inclura de même un système d’alertes entièrement paramétrables pour permettre aux médecins et infirmières d’intervenir ou de suivre le patient entre les consultations. Une première étude a déjà été menée auprès de 180 personnes diabétiques entre 2007 et 2009 pour tester Diabéo. Désormais, les différents collaborateurs du projet s’apprêtent donc à mener une nouvelle étude, cette fois-ci à l’échelle nationale. La mise à disposition de Diabeo serait ainsi déjà prévue pour 2014.  Le 13 septembre 2011 à 19:22 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Stadia Is Googles New Video Game Streaming Platform

first_img Yes, Google is making a video game thing. After months of speculation (and hopeful montages of social gaming throughout the centuries) Google revealed its new Stadia platform during its GDC keynote. Instead creating any kind of limiting box, Stadia is a streaming service that allows you to play the best-looking versions of modern games on anything with a good enough internet connection and Chrome. The company that made AI smart enough to play high-level StarCraft can probably build data centers to pull this off.On Stadia your gameplay experience seamlessly exists across devices, from phones to PCs to a Chromecast. You could even start playing a game with no loading after clicking a link on a YouTube video. Google is making its own controller, with smart cloud features for detecting what device you’re using, but you can use whatever.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Yes, Project Stream with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was a test for this. And along with Ubisoft, Google is working with partners like Unity, Epic, and iD. GDC attendees can even play Doom: Eternal at 4K 60 FPS at the show with GPUs more powerful than Xbox One X and PS4 Pro combined. Finally, couch co-op that deosn’t destroy framerate. And Google’s brains do more than just increase graphical muscle. Machine learning techniques also generate new kinds of potential art styles and allow for even more massive multiplayer matches.And as a streaming-based platform, Stadia also has YouTube/Twitch-like features blurring the lines between playing and watching video games with streamers and their fans. A video clip could also include a save state allowing others to pick up a game at the most exciting moment. Crowd Play lets you join lobbies for multiplayer games you’re watching. There’s even a YouTube share button on the controller.This is exciting, ambitious, and surely has more news coming soon we can’t wait to hear. We barely even mentioned Google Assistant strategy guides or Jade Raymond’s new first-party Google game dev studio. So look out for more on Google Stadia, launching in 2019, as GDC continues. 50 Attorneys General Launch Bipartisan Probe Into GoogleYouTube Fined $170M For Alleged Child Privacy Law Violation Stay on targetlast_img read more

YouTube Kids is getting its own website

first_img Tags Originally published Aug. 28.Update, Aug. 29: Adds more background on YouTube Kids.  2:43 Mobile Apps Computers Phones Mobile Digital Media Share your voice YouTube Kids is changing the filtering options for parents.  Jason Cipriani/CNET YouTube Kids, Google’s child-focused version of the video app, is getting its own website. In a blog post Tuesday, the YouTube team said it’s launching YouTube Kids on the web later this week. Previously YouTube Kids was available as an iOS or Android app. The company also said it’s making it easier for parents to find the right content for their kids. YouTube Kids will start filtering content into three different age groups: Preschool (ages 4 and under), Younger (ages 5-7) and Older (ages 8-12). As the kids get older, the filters give them a bit more independence, the company said.YouTube Kids previously had just two age groups: Younger (under 8) and Older (8-13). Parents can also still choose Approve Content Only. The customizable option lets parents approve the videos, channels and collections that are available to watch in YouTube Kids. Kids also can’t search for videos in this mode.YouTube Kids came under fire earlier this year for collecting children’s data and using it to serve them targeted ads. That led to parent company Google reaching a multimillion-dollar settlement with the US Federal Trade Commission last month. YouTube reportedly said last week that it would stop running targeted advertising aimed at kids. 0 YouTube YouTube could soon ditch targeted ads for kids Post a comment Now playing: Watch this:last_img read more

Vigil and March for Missing DC Girl

first_imgFriends, neighbors, and family of Relisha Rudd, 8, gathered on the corner of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X avenues southeast on March 31. It was just hours after police confirmed that main suspect in the abduction committed suicide. Relisha, however, is still missing. While police remain hopeful, they say they are not certain whether Relisha is alive or dead.In response to the news, Trayon White organized a walk and prayer vigil for her safe return. “The reality is that this happens all the time in our community,” said White. “This event is not about me, it’s not about us. It’s about the community, [and] it’s about the baby, and her coming home.”Relisha’s grandparents and great grandmother joined the marchers as they handed fliers to residents, displayed signs, and chanted, “Bring her home.” After walking for about half an hour, they stopped at a parking lot and sang, “He’s got the whole world in His hands.” Then White led the group in prayer.“I just want whoever, anybody [that] sees her to bring her home,” said Relisha’s grandmother Melissa Young as she cried. Relisha’s great grandmother, Mary Young, shared those same sentiments. Relisha’s step-grandmother Belinda Wheeler, who helped raise her, said she never thought Tatum was a threat.Before Relisha was abducted, she had heard about him, but nothing that made her think he was dangerous. “I hate to even think of the worst,” said Wheeler. “At this point, just bring her back, one way or the other.”Relisha was last seen by her mother, Shamika Young on Feb. 26, when she allowed Tatum, 51, a janitor at the homeless shelter where her family was staying, to take her home. Relisha was reported missing on March 19 by a social worker from her school after she went to the shelter to find a “Dr. Tatum,” who had sent several excuse notes concerning Relisha’s absence from school. An amber alert was issued March 20, the day after the social worker confirmed “Dr. Tatum” never existed.It has been reported that Relisha was spotted March 1 at a motel on New York Avenue with Khalil Tatum, 51, a janitor at the homeless shelter where Relisha lived with her mother and three siblings. Tatum, identified as the main suspect in the abduction, was reportedly seen March 2 buying a shovel, contractor-sized garbage bags and lime, then later was spotted in Kenilworth Park.Relisha’s mother Shamika Young, absent from the vigil, reportedly said she trusted Tatum was a good man. Reports say she did not report Relisha missing because she feared authorities would take away her other children.Bernadette Chatman, a D.C. resident, said she came out to the vigil because she has grandchildren and it hurts to think that it could have been one of them. “I’m out here to support the fact that he needs to send her home to us. They say it takes a village to raise one child, so I am a part of the village,” she said.last_img read more

Qantas Group Executive Government and Corporate Affairs, David Epstein said, “We have acted within the letter and spirit of the relevant industrial agreement and met all of our obligations to this group at all times. “Qantas had employed the group, comprising women and men, on temporary fixed term contracts in late 2008/ early 2009 to provide aircraft cleaning services in Sydney.“However the loss of a third party aircraft cleaning and ground handling contract with another airline meant our labour needs were reduced and it was not possible to retain these staff. This, unfortunately, is the reality of the airline business.  “The employee’s work was valued and, had the situation been different, permanent employment may have been an option. “More than 40 percent of Qantas employees are women, a figure that immediately throws into question any claim that the company discriminated on the basis of gender. “The TWU seem happy to miss this point and are unfairly using the Qantas brand to bolster an industrial campaign, knowing full well that Qantas is a leading employer of Australian women and is committed to providing opportunities for women and a workplace free of discrimination.”last_img read more
