Saudi Arabia Will Allow Women to Drive Motorcycles and Trucks

By Sana ElouaziRabat – As the winds of change continue to hit the Al-Saud kingdom, authorities have announced that Saudi women will also be able to drive motorcycles, vans, and trucks, after Riyadh lifted the ban on women’s driving three months ago.The news was announced on state media and confirmed by the Saudi General Department of Traffic. However, Saudi woman will still have to wait for seven months to hop on their motorcycles, as the measure will only come into effect beginning June 2018.For many years, the ban on women driving has caused serious damage to the kingdom’s reputation at the regional and international level.This measure had been demanded for many years by Saudi women, who took to the streets in their cars in protest of the policy, and some of whom were arrested and jailed for defying the ban.The prohibition still had fierce support from Saudi officials and religious figures, who went as far as issuing religious edicts on the subject.So is the case, for instance, for Sheikh Saad Al Hijri, who sparked the outrage of both the Saudi and international publics by stating that women cannot drive “because they have quarter of a brain.”Allowing women to drive for the first time in the history of the Arabian kingdom is a move that comes as a part of a vast program of economic and social reforms initiated by the Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman in April 2016, under the Vision 2030 banner, to the discontent of ultra-conservative circles.In Saudi Arabia, the unemployment rate is very high among women due to their total dependence on male drivers.By allowing millions of new motorists to take the wheels, Riyadh’s decision could have a significant impact on the Saudi economy, aiming at reducing the country’s dependence on oil.To boost the country’s economic growth, Saudi authorities will also allow public cinemas to operate within the kingdom as of early 2018, lifting a ban that has been in force for more than 35 years.Despite lifting the gender-based road restrictions, Saudi Arabia continue to have one of the most discriminatory laws against women, who are still severely restricted and must live under the supervision of a male guardian in their families in order to study, travel. or even to receive hospital treatment. read more

Ban Kimoon lauds gains made in Central African integration peace

In a message to the 13th conference of heads of State and of government of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) underway in Brazzaville, the Republic of Congo, Mr. Ban said that “the progress which has been achieved so far in the process of integration of Central Africa, as well as in the promotion of peace is encouraging.”He also noted in his message delivered by his Special Representative for the Central African Republic, François Lonsény Fall that the “collective efforts” of ECCAS countries will promote a common market comprising over 120 million consumers, while the consolidation of peace would bolster socio-economic development for the sub-region as well as the entire African continent.But at the same time, he acknowledged that Central Africa still faces obstacles in increasing prosperity and the well-being of the population, including the persistence of tension in zones such as eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), eastern Chad and north-eastern Central African Republic (CAR).The proliferation of light weapons and small arms, the illegal exploitation of natural resources and the rise of human trafficking and cross-border insecurity are also impeding Central African integration, he said.Mr. Ban welcomed the ongoing steps towards peace in Chad and CAR, adding that he hopes that “the effective implementation of the recommendations and decisions from these processes will reinforce national reconciliation, peacebuilding and reconstruction within these two countries of the sub-region of Central Africa.” 30 October 2007Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today praised Central Africa for its efforts towards integration and peace, but warned that the region still faces several hurdles. read more

Lebanon enlarged UN peacekeeping presence helps stimulate local economy

By 2007, UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) international civilian staff will more than double, and this will definitely influence for the better the financial market, the mission said in news release today.UNIFIL staff members purchase commodities, rent apartments, enrol their children in schools and travel. “In addition, UNIFIL employees have many visitors who will have a significant impact on tourism and this is priceless, it improves the reputation of the country,” the mission’s Acting Chief Administrative Officer Jean-Pierre Ducharme said. UNIFIL also provides medical and dental insurance to national staff members, reducing the burden on the Lebanese social structure. The number of national staff, which already exceeds 300, should double in the next year.As mandated by UN Security Council Resolution 1701, UNIFIL strength is to increase to up to 15,000 international troops before the end of 2006. “The soldiers spend a lot of money here, they visit local attractions, eat out, travel and this, in the end, helps to stimulate the economy,” Mr. Ducharme said.Over the last three years, UNIFIL spent approximately 60 per cent of its budget on procuring from local companies. During the past year alone, some $40 million went back to the Lebanese economy.“Obviously, this number will increase, but it gives a good indication on how UNIFIL provides something positive for the Lebanese market,” Mr. Ducharme said. read more

New panel reviewing Energy East Pipeline voids past decisions, restarts process Energy East Pipeline www.energyeastpipeline.com by The Canadian Press Posted Jan 27, 2017 7:45 am MDT Last Updated Jan 27, 2017 at 8:07 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CALGARY – The National Energy Board says the new panel assigned to review TransCanada Corp.’s (TSX:TRP) Energy East Pipeline has voided all decisions made by the previous hearing panel.The board says all hearing steps and related deadlines for Energy East are no longer applicable.The previous Energy East pipeline panel stepped down amidst questions about a potential conflict of interest last year.A new panel was appointed earlier this month.The board says the previous panel’s decisions have also been rendered void for TransCanada’s Eastern Mainline pipeline application.The board noted that those who have already submitted an application to participate in the review process do not need to reapply.It said the new panel will review all of the filed applications and release a new list of participants.The panel has also decided that the project applicants do not need to refile their applications.The review panel will examine a proposed 4,500-kilometre pipeline that would carry 1.1-million barrels of crude oil per day from Alberta and Saskatchewan to refineries in Eastern Canada and a marine terminal in New Brunswick.It includes a proposal to build approximately 279 kilometres of new gas pipeline and related components in four sections, beginning near Markham, Ont., and finishing near Brouseville, Ont. read more

Brock prof wins prestigious teaching award

Brock University Recreation and Leisure Studies Professor Timothy O’Connell has won a teaching award from an association representing 17,000 faculty members in Ontario.The Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations announced its 2014-15 Teaching Award recipients Tuesday morning and O’Connell was one of five to make the list. “The University is delighted to receive the news that Prof. Tim O’Connell is a recipient,” said Anna Lathrop, Vice Provost, Teaching and Learning at Brock. “He epitomizes student-centred learning both within and outside the classroom. He is a distinguished researcher in the field of teaching and learning scholarship, most notably in the area of experiential education.” O’Connell said the award is the result of having good students to work with.“It’s more of a testimony to the students and just how much they engage in things. It makes it easy,” he said, adding that the University has given him the support needed to do “good and different things.” O’Connell launched the Brock Basecamp program in 2010 that takes first-year students on multi-day outdoor excursions involving hiking, canoeing or rock-climbing. The trips are led by upper-year Brock students or recent grads. “It’s a way for the incoming students to make friends, which is one of the biggest concerns for students coming from high school to university,” he said. “It’s also a way for the student leaders to share information on things like making healthy decisions, physical activity, and drug and alcohol awareness.” Lathrop said the Basecamp program has had a national impact.“It’s a stellar example of an orientation program that has a significant positive impact on students’ sense of community and campus affiliation. As a result, many other universities have sought to emulate this example.”O’Connell, who has taught at Brock since 2006, also makes experiential learning a priority in his classes. “In all of the traditional classes I teach, I try to have an experiential learning component. We do a little bit of theory and knowledge, but we also try and make it real through practical, hands-on experience,” he said. “Prof. O’Connell is a champion of experiential learning, and believes the pursuit of knowledge is as much about doing as thinking,” said Andrea Buchholz, Chair of OCUFA’s Award Committee. “It is perhaps no surprise that he is taking learning beyond the classroom to astounding new heights.”O’Connell will receive his award at a ceremony Oct. 24 in Toronto. Other recipients were: Greg Evans, Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Toronto; Prof. Vincent Hui, Department of Architectural Science, Ryerson University; Pippa Lock, Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, McMaster University; Trent Tucker, College of Business and Economics, University of Guelph. read more

Commentary Devoted NBA fans wont miss David Stern

When I heard that NBA commissioner David Stern vetoed a potential blockbuster deal that would have sent former New Orleans Hornets and all-star guard Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers last season, I said a bunch of things that can’t be run in print. Well, Christmas came early for me this season as Stern said Thursday he would retire as league commissioner, effective Feb. 1, 2014. The NBA’s deputy commissioner, Adam Silver, has been selected to take his place. The decision to try and bar Paul from the Lakers, I thought, was the most blatant abuse of power I have ever seen by a professional commissioner. Los Angeles and the Hornets negotiated what they considered a fair deal and made it league official, only to be renounced hours later because one person, Stern, didn’t think it was “fair.” I understand Stern found a loophole. At the time, New Orleans’ team was up for sale. Consequently, the Hornets fell under the ownership of Stern and the NBA. Stern said the league made a decision “in the best interest” of the Hornets. Many people speculate that Stern’s decision was made due to enormous pressure from multiple owners, most notably Dan Gilbert of the Cleveland Cavaliers. But countless NBA analysts disagreed and felt the deal was more than adequate. Personally, I think most owners believed the league was getting too top-heavy with talent and smaller market teams would no longer be able to compete at a championship level. Now, if you fast forward to present day, the Lakers look like the predominant favorite to represent the Western Conference and the only team who can challenge the defending NBA champion Miami Heat. But today, Lakers fans only have one question: What could have been? Keep in mind, the proposed three-team deal that Stern vetoed only included current Los Angeles forward Pau Gasol and former Laker Lamar Odom in exchange for Paul. Comparatively, the Aug. 10 four-team trade that sent former Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard to the Lakers only featured injury-prone center Andrew Bynum from the purple and gold. So conceivably, the Lakers could have assembled a Western Conference version of the Miami “Big Three” with Howard, Paul and guard Kobe Bryant. As the New York Yankees of the NBA, the Lakers always seem to get who they want. Key acquisitions of longtime Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash and Howard have made painful memories of the failed Paul deal disappear. I’m not saying Stern robbed the Lakers of a title last season, but he sure didn’t help. Over the last few seasons, the Lakers have been torched by point guards and Paul is arguably the best at his position. What I am saying is that I hope Silver leaves the dealing to the general managers. Stern caused more harm than good and devoted NBA fans are not sad he’s leaving. Here’s to a bright future and let’s hope we see a “Silver-lining” with the new commissioner. read more

Overseas Australians can still vote

first_imgMembers of the Greek Australian community who are overseas can still vote in the upcoming Federal Election, the Australian Electoral Commission has said. To do so, you must be enrolled to vote. There are a number of ways you can vote overseas. You can vote in person at an overseas voting centre. They will be found at most Australian Embassies, Consulates and High Commissions around the world. Pre-poll (in person) voting for the 2013 election will operate at overseas voting centres from Monday 26 August. Check with your nearest overseas voting centre to find out what times they will open for voting. The AEC will also have early voting centres set up at some Australian airports before election day so you will be able to vote before you leave the country. Details of these centres will be available on the AEC website closer to the federal election. If you are travelling overseas for a short period of time and prefer to vote by post for this election, you can apply online. Your postal vote will be sent to your nominated postal address once ballot papers are available. If you will be out of Australia for a longer period, you may be eligible to register as an eligible overseas elector. Eligible overseas electors will be given the option of registering as a general postal voter which means they will automatically receive a postal vote in the mail for each election or referendum. If you are unable to vote you should complete and submit an Overseas Notification form, also found on the AEC website. Fines will not be issued to those who do not vote but can prove they are overseas. You can apply online for a postal vote so your voting papers are sent to your overseas address for you to complete and mail back to the AEC but you can not vote online.

Laser Scans Uncover Hidden Military Traverse Underneath Alcatraz

first_img Extremely Rare, Two-Colored Lobster Found in MaineNew Species of Giant Flying Reptile Identified By Scientists Alcatraz holds many forgotten secrets, but one has been discovered: High-tech radar and laser scans have uncovered a hidden military traverse underneath the infamous penitentiary, according to new research.A team of researchers from Binghamton University, State University of New York used terrestrial laser scans, ground-penetrating radar data, and georectifications (the process of taking old digitized maps and linking them to a coordinate system so that they can be accurately geolocated in 3D space) to locate and assess the historical remains beneath the former recreation yard of the Alcatraz penitentiary, according to a press release.The scans revealed that remnants of buried structures, including a “bombproof” earthwork traverse along with its underlying vaulted brick masonry tunnel and ventilation ducts, ran east to west beneath the recreation yard of the Alcatraz penitentiary, which is located in the San Francisco Bay, 1.25 miles offshore from San Francisco, Calif.Binghamton University archaeologist Timothy de Smet, whose team’s findings are detailed in a paper published in the journal Near Surface Geophysics, said he was shocked to discover that the historical structures were maintained in such good condition.“The remains of these historical archaeology features were just a few centimeters beneath the surface and they were miraculously and impeccably preserved,” de Smet said. “The concrete veneer of the Recreation Yard floor is incredibly thin and, in fact, in places sitting directly atop the architecture from the 1860s. We also learned that some of the earthwork traverses were covered over with thin concrete layers through time, likely to decrease erosion on the rainy windy island.”Known as a former high-security federal penitentiary that once housed many of America’s most notorious gangsters and criminals, such as Al Capone, Alcatraz Island is now a National Historic Landmark that attracts several tourists in its location adjacent to the Golden Gate Bridge.However, many overlook Alcatraz’s former military role as a 19th century coastal fortification, featuring underground ammunition. Since it was converted to a prison, researchers have been interested to see if there were any historical remains left of the fortification.Binghamton University archaeologist Timothy de Smet and colleagues used terrestrial laser scans, ground-penetrating radar data and georectifications to locate and assess historical remains beneath the Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary. (Photo Credit: Timothy de Smet)According to de Smet, during the construction of the Alcatraz prison in the 1900s, the area was essentially bulldozed from the former military installation to the modern prison we see today.“We sought non-invasive, non-destructive means to ascertain if any historic archaeological remains lay beneath several parts of the island, like the Recreation Yard of the infamous US Federal penitentiary,” said de Smet. “We did not know what to expect. We did not know if there would be any extant subsurface architecture of these historically significant remains, or if there was anything left, what their extent and integrity would be like.”The noninvasive process used by researchers permits accurate spatial identification 19th-century architectural structures depicted in historical documents. And this groundbreaking approach can also be applied to investigate other important cultural landmarks worldwide.de Smet said the results prove that archaeologists can detect historical structures in a gentler manner: “These results are significant in that they show how modern technology can be used to answer fundamental questions of archaeological importance without any destructive excavations. This research shows that best practice approaches can be used to non-invasively non-destructively investigate the archaeological record with remote sensing alone.”More on Geek.com:500-Million-Year-Old Worm ‘Superhighway’ Discovered in CanadaScientists Find ‘Tiny Animal Carcasses’ in Buried Antarctic LakeUntouched, 4,400-Year-Old Tomb Discovered in Egypt Stay on targetlast_img read more

County panel to weigh jail options

first_imgClark County will form a blue ribbon commission to look into options to modernize and upgrade the county’s antiquated jail.Council Chair Marc Boldt said Interim County Manager Jim Rumpeltes is currently assembling the commission’s members as well as the exact scope of its task and should be finished later this month.Boldt said the commission will likely be comprised of about 20 members that could include mayors, city administrators and community members. He said it may also include elected officials and representatives from county departments such as General Services, the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, judges, as well as the treasurer and auditor’s offices.“Personally, it is my most important issue,” said Boldt.Last spring, the county released findings from the DLR Group, a facilities consulting firm, that concluded that the county’s jail had become increasingly cramped and dilapidated. One study from the firm found that the jail would need another 366,564 square feet to meet industry best practices. It currently has 124,318 square feet (excluding its work center). The study also found that the jail will need to have 1,109 to 1,260 beds by 2036, more than its current 793-bed capacity.The consultants presented three plans to upgrade the jail. The “preferred” master plan would cost between $268 million and $284 million and would bring the jail up to industry square-foot standards while increasing the bed count to 1,028.Boldt said he expects the commission to conclude its work in the fall. The county could go to voters with a bond proposal in February of next year.last_img read more

Mayor Turner Says He Does Not Support Use Of Facility In Houston

first_img Share Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said Tuesday he does not support the use of a facility on Emancipation Avenue to shelter immigrant children who were separated from their families at the border.Turner said he met with Southwest Key representatives and asked them to reconsider.“Because if we facilitate these type of policies, then what do we do the next time?” he asked. “It becomes a little bit easier. And the next time, it becomes a little bit easier. And then one morning we will wake up and ask ourselves, what sort of society have we allowed ourselves to create?” Flanked by dozens of political, faith and community advocates, Turner said he has no issue with Southwest Key itself.

We’re also broadening our sales channels and getting closer to the consumer to help us understand what they want and what we can do better, and focusing on improving our environmental and social impact which is an important part of our purpose and brand-led strategy.  “We’re proud of our performance and excited about our prospects, but we know there’s more we can do which is why we’ll be working hard to do even better next year.” You might also be interested in New Zealand kiwifruit marketer Zespsi says that its operating revenue from global kiwifruit sales and license release last season has exceeded NZ$3 billion (US$1.95 billion) for the first time, on the back of growth in both volume and value and across all fruit categories.The results reflect continued strong international demand, with Zespri selling a total of 167.2 million trays of kiwifruit in 2018-19, a 21% increase on the 138.6 million trays sold in the previous season.Revenue generated by global kiwifruit sales and SunGold license release increased by 26% to NZ$3.14 billion (US$2 billion).   Total fruit and service payments (including the loyalty premium) to New Zealand growers was up 24% to NZ$1.82 billion, while average orchard gate returns to growers increased by 6% to NZ$63,622 per hectare for Green Kiwifruit, by 28% to NZ$145,991 per hectare for SunGold, by 40% to NZ$73,350 for Green Organic and by 14% to NZ$44,549 per hectare for Sweet Green.Zespri chair Bruce Cameron says growers and their communities are benefiting from increasing demand for Zespri kiwifruit and from the industry’s growth to drive and meet that demand. “Consumers around the world are increasingly embracing healthier products and want more of our kiwifruit because they know it is a convenient way to get their daily nutrition and because it tastes great,” he says.“That’s evident in the increased volumes of both Green and SunGold Kiwifruit Zespri sold last season which has driven record average returns per hectare for both categories. While SunGold also returned record levels per tray, Green returns per tray were down slightly because of higher-than-expected volumes which led to an extended sales window and associated increases in quality costs.center_img Chilean kiwifruit production to drop this season … Sinclair launches compostable labels for fresh pro … Chilean kiwifruit exports to Europe tumble, contin …last_img read more
