Morocco example to follow in terms of achieving MDGs UN official

Nairobi – Morocco is an example to follow in terms of achieving the Millennium Development Goals, particularly those related to housing, said UN deputy secretary-general and executive director of UN-Habitat, Joan Clos at a meeting of Group of 77 and China, held Friday at the UN headquarters in Nairobi.The choice of the capital Rabat to host, in November 2012, a UN-Habitat international conference is not fortuitous, Clos said in an interview with MAP, noting that this choice reflects the international recognition for the commendable efforts that Morocco continues to make in the fight against unhealthy housing and to provide the conditions for sustainable development.The Rabat Conference culminated in the adoption by the Council of UN-Habitat of a Moroccan draft resolution entitled “making slums history, a global challenge.” This draft resolution is based on the Rabat Declaration, adopted at the International Conference “Making Slums History A Global Challenge for 2020.”The UN official recalled giving the Honor Award for Habitat to Morocco in October 2010 as a way to honor the Kingdom for its efforts and political will under the leadership of King Mohammed VI. read more

Witnesses said the singer and songwriter, a Houston native who performed as Tay Watts, may have hit his head when he fell off the pier around 5:30 p.m. Sunday. He apparently never resurfaced after plunging into the water.A San Diego Fire-Rescue Department lifeguard immediately jumped into the ocean from the pier, launching a search effort that went through the night Sunday into early Monday, continued throughout Monday and resumed this morning.The search and recovery efforts began at 7 this morning from an SDFD helicopter, fire department spokeswoman Monica Munoz said. Three boats equipped with side-scan sonar were also sent out to comb the waters off Mission and Pacific beaches.“We will start at the South Mission Beach jetty and scan towards the pier,” Munoz said. “Divers will be deployed when we find objects of interest.”The search began Sunday night with a lifeguard boat, helicopter, personal watercraft and at least 16 lifeguards searching from the water, Munoz said. After braving 4- to 6-foot surf for more than an hour, the lifeguards ended the initial search about 7 p.m. Sunday.Around that same time, a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter and the Coast Guard Cutter Haddock arrived and searched for Watts throughout Sunday night and Monday morning, Petty Officer Rob Simpson said.Lifeguards and Coast Guard personnel searched for Watts unsuccessfully all day Monday amid waves of 3 to 4 feet and a strong rip current, Munoz said. The search Monday was called off at 5:30 p.m., a little after sunset.“Lifeguards searched the areas of interest with scuba divers,” Munoz said. “We had two vessels with side-scan sonar scanning the area and dove on one object of interest. We had free divers search around the pier and in a large, longshore rip current inside the surf line.”An SDFD helicopter also made two 50-minute searches along the shoreline and just off shore Monday, Munoz said.

Nintendo doesnt want you pouring money into its mobile games report says

first_img Now playing: Watch this: Nintendo isn’t interested in plundering your wallet through its mobile games, a report said. Kazuhiro Nogi / AFP/Getty Images Nintendo reportedly wants to limit microtransactions within its mobile games, potentially limiting revenue to protect its image.The Japanese company wants to use those games to get people interested in its traditional console games (like those on Switch) and avoid being slammed as greedy, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday, citing an unnamed company official.This had a direct impact on Dragalia Lost, the action RPG it released last September. When players struggled to unlock rare characters in its in-game lotteries, Nintendo reportedly asked CyberAgent (developer Cygames’ parent company) to tweak the game to stop players spending too much on extra tries.”Nintendo is not interested in making a large amount of revenue from a single smartphone game,” an unnamed CyberAgent official told the Journal. “If we managed the game alone, we would have made a lot more.” Share your voice The game reportedly earned around $58.4 million in 2018, while strategy RPG Fire Emblem Heroes brought in $230 million.Nintendo didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.In January, the company revealed that Mario Kart Tour — the mobile entry in one of its major series — would be delayed until this summer. We know that game will be “free-to-start,” so it’ll contain microtransactions of some sort.It also revealed Wednesday that it’s making a move into VR, with a Labo kit for Switch.

Is death end of everything Woman says she felt love in purest

first_imgPixabayModern medical science considers death as the end of everything, but spiritualists think otherwise, and they believe that humans will start their eternal journey after taking their last breath. To substantiate these views, spiritualists often cite testimonials of near-death experience (NDE) victims. One such NDE testimonial from a UK woman named Rachel is now going viral on social media platforms.Rachel shared her mysterious experience in the NDERF (Near Death Experience Research Foundation) website. In the testimonial shared, Rachel revealed that her near-death experience happened during a blood transfusion following delivery. After falling into the clutches of death, the woman claimed that she hovered above her newborn baby.The NDE victim went on claiming that she went through an illuminated tunnel, and later, she saw even the minutest things she did in her lifetime.”I watched my own poor mistakes and learned from every re-living. I watched myself as a child, bitten by a guinea-pig and in shock, half launch it onto the sofa. How the way I mistreated others, deeply hurt and affected them and also how that pain, fear, and confusion would then impact the lives of others too. In the ‘time’ I spent in this re-living, I developed deep gratitude for many things. The experience of life for one. The people and the hearts that had touched my soul in beautiful ways and the fragility of being human. My new found wisdom seemed satisfactory and we were moving,” wrote Rachel on the NDERF website.Rachel revealed that she travelled towards a bright light that was actually drawing her towards it. As per Rachel, she felt incredibe peace during that journey, and she did not experience any kinds of fear or intimidation. The NDE victim also made it clear that the only thing she experienced was love in its purest form.”It was every incredible feeling that I will never be able to describe. It was immediate peace. Absolute, whole peace all throughout me. There was no pain, there was no fear, there was no shame. I felt completely accepted. Totally whole and loved. Loved beyond comprehension. Loved in my entirety. Loved with a Love I have not felt here. Loved with the purest love there can be,” added Rachel.Rachel’s testimonial has now emerged as the hottest debating point among medical experts and spiritualists. As per spiritualists, Rachel’s experience is authentic proof of life after death. These people believe that afterlife is a reality which modern science cannot explain. Citing religious books, they claim that the human mind will transform into souls after death, and from then, they will begin the real journey. However, medical experts have dismissed these claims, and they reveal that the human brain will face a shortage of oxygen during life-threatening events. To overcome this, the human brain will adopt a survival technique and this is the main cause of visual hallucinations during NDE.last_img read more

Chemistry on Mars reveals cooling rate

first_img More information: David Baratoux et al., Thermal history of Mars inferred from orbital geochemistry of volcanic provinces, Nature (2011) doi:10.1038/nature09903 Citation: Chemistry on Mars reveals cooling rate (2011, April 7) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-04-chemistry-mars-reveals-cooling.html Mars breakthrough: Scientists uncover red planet’s hot and steamy secrets This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. By studying thorium, silicon and iron concentrations in the Martian soil (based on the Gamma Ray Spectrometer data collected from onboard the Odyssey) David Baratoux, Michael Toplis and their colleagues have been able to deduce that Mars has cooled by about 80°C (176°F) over the past two or three billion years, which some have noted is slower than that for Earth.The researchers focused on twelve different volcanic plains on the Martian surface, each of a different age. Thorium, a radioactive element was chosen as one of the study agents due to the fact that when it’s heated it doesn’t get locked in with other elements, which makes it a good source of information for mantle temperatures when it is transported to the surface via volcanic activity (plus the fact that it continually emits gamma rays). Studying silicon in the volcanic soil, on the other hand, helps to gauge melting depth; and iron can be used to help figure out how accurate the first two are.The researchers were able to come to these conclusions because it is already well understood that the composition of magma pushed to the surface through melting of mantle rocks (creating volcanoes) is controlled by depth, temperature and pressure exerted before being forced to the surface. With data from the GRS they were able to measure the composition percentages of the studied elements and the degree of variation between them, and also to calculate the degree of melting; to which they were able to apply mathematical modeling that gave them the pace of cooling.In addition to coming up with a reasonable estimate of planet cooling, the team also came up with evidence to suggest that Mar’s lithosphere is thickening. By studying changing temperature patterns on Mars, and other planets, researchers hope to gain new insights into how our own planet might behave as the future unfolds. © 2010 PhysOrg.com (PhysOrg.com) — French researchers from the University of Toulouse have published a paper in Nature, that describes how they used data from NASA’s Mars Odyssey (currently orbiting the planet) to ascertain the amount of cooling that Mars has undergone over billions of years. Their work is part of an ongoing international process to reconstruct the geologic history of the Red Planet. © 2011 David Baratoux Explore furtherlast_img read more

The Genius of Marie Curie was Formed at an Underground Illegal University

first_imgIn 1903, Marie Sklodowska Curie and her husband, Pierre, won the Nobel Prize in Physics for joint research on radiation. (Radiation had been identified as a phenomenon by Professor Henri Becquerel.) In 1911, Marie won, completely on her own merit, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry “in recognition of her services to the advancement of chemistry by the discovery of the elements radium and polonium, by the isolation of radium and the study of the nature and compounds of this remarkable element.”What is perhaps even more remarkable is that Marie Curie was not only the first woman awarded a Nobel Prize but also the first person to win the award twice, and she came from a country where women were not allowed to attend University.Marie CurieHigher education was not considered necessary for women in a large part of the world at the time, so the female Curies, Marie and her sister Bronya, had to overcome obstacles to continue their learning past their early teens.Marie was an excellent student, graduating from high school at the age of 15 at the top of her class. As the government had forbidden teaching several subjects, including laboratory classes, Marie’s father, a physics and mathematics teacher, brought home lab equipment and supplemented his daughters’ education.Marie and Pierre Curie experimenting with radium, a drawing by André CastaigneUnfortunately, her father could not afford to send her to University, and, even if he did, girls could not pursue higher education in Poland at the time. Marie’s sister Bronya faced the same circumstances.Marie agreed to work as a governess and tutor to support Bronya while she studied medicine in Paris. At the time, the line dividing Poland from Russia was blurred, so Marie continued to study chemistry, physics, and mathematics at an underground school known as the “Flying University”, where Poles went to learn subjects forbidden by the government, including Polish culture and nationalism.Marie Curie’s notebook. Photo by Wellcome Images CC BY-SA 4.0The Flying (also known as Floating) University also defied Russian laws by allowing female teachers and students. When Marie was able to join her sister in Paris, she studied at the Sorbonne and, again, she graduated at the top of her class. While working for her Ph.D., she studied the properties of uranium and its atomic structure and coined the term “radioactive”. She improved upon Wilhelm Röentgen’s discovery of X-rays and set up portable X-ray units for medic hospitals during the first world war.Related Video: The People who Live in Chernobyl’s Radioactive AreaIn 1906, Marie’s husband, a brilliant scientist and the Chair of Physics at the Sorbonne, was killed by a horse-drawn carriage in the street. Marie was offered his position, which she accepted, becoming the first woman professor at the Sorbonne.Pierre and Marie Curie in the laboratoryMarie was finally considered to be one of the top scientists in the world and hobnobbed with people like Albert Einstein, Hendrik Lorentz, and Max Planck. The Curies had two daughters, Irène and Ève.Irène and her husband Frédéric were the recipients of the 1935 Nobel Peace Prize in Chemistry for continuing Irène’s parents’ work in radioactivity. Ève became a concert pianist, a war correspondent, was active with UNICEF and became a published author who wrote of her parents and their work. The constant exposure to radiation took its toll on the health of the Curies. Marie died at the age of 66, in 1934, from aplastic anemia, a disease of the bone marrow most likely contracted during her work.Curie in a mobile X-ray vehicleHer daughter Irène and Irène’s husband, Frédéric, both died at the age of 58, she of leukemia in 1956 and he from complications of surgery for liver disease believed to be brought on by radiation exposure.Read another story from us: More than 80 years after she passed away, Marie Curie’s remains and personal items are still dangerously radioactiveÈve, who was not a scientist, lived to the age of 102, dying in 2007. Marie’s research notes and personal papers are still so radioactive they are stored in lead boxes that can only be opened by someone in a protective suit.last_img read more

Space Really Does Need Traffic Cops

first_imgRight now, most of what’s up there isn’t even functional—it’s more than 90 percent space junk. For that reason, the directive signed by Trump recommends “active removal,” in which debris is taken out rather than left to decay downward at its own pace. This is not a new idea, and Obama’s 2010 National Space Policy exhorted the US to dig into active removal, but little forward movement has happened there. Perhaps because it’s a fraught prospect. Any active remover—be it a harpoon, or a net, or a robotic arm—could peacefully deorbit a defunct American satellite, or it could mess with a foreign sat. That is, perhaps, why Trump’s policy says the US should develop standard protocols for “rendezvous and proximity operations.”Under the new directive, the Defense Department will continue to track and catalog space debris and functional satellites. It already keeps watch over more than 20,000 objects using the Space Surveillance Network, a system of optical and radar equipment spread around the globe. A new “Space Fence” will soon come online that can see smaller space bits.The DOD will now provide the “releasable” part of its (vast) catalog to the Department of Commerce. Which, in turn, will be expected to incorporate other orbital and safety data—from other agencies, from the private sector, from other countries—and take the lead in creating an open orbital-data repository. With its multitude of information, the Commerce Department will now be responsible for telling satellite operators when they’re in trouble and what to do about it.Obviously, the directive gives some guidance about how to deal with the traffic jams already happening. Which is good. But better is that it also aims to function like that highway patrol cop parked on the side of the interstate—preemptively slowing down troublemakers barreling down the turnpike. Right now, US policies dictate that once satellites’ missions are over, they should deorbit no more than 25 years later. No good, says the new policy. NASA, says the directive, “shall lead efforts to update the US Orbital Debris Mitigation Standard Practices and establish new guidelines for satellite design and operation.” And prelaunch certification for satellite-launching companies could involve new strictures.

Great job, now make sure they don’t crash into each other. Oh, you want us to track them for you? Develop some beacons to help us out. And for the love of God, encrypt your command and control communications until your satellite’s life is over, at which point it had better spiral to a fiery death. The details of all that are still to come, and while the directive—by its nature and by its content—calls for standards and protocols and regulation, Trump had a request about rules: “Don’t let it get too out of control, please.”But the ever-increasing number of private space companies means now’s a good time for the Air Force to back out of the public space-traffic management game. Because while there are already many objects in orbit—from operational satellites to screws to spent rocket stages—there are about to be a whole lot more. Satellite companies like SpaceX, OneWeb, and Planet either already have huge fleets or plan to. “If all of these plans materialize,” scientists from federally funded research and development center the Aerospace Corporation warned in a policy paper, “the population of operational satellites in [low Earth orbit] would jump by over a factor of ten—from ~1,000 today to over 16,000 within the next 10 to 20 years.” And the number of watch out messages would also grow, the paper continues, by a factor of 10 in some space regions. In the early Space Age, the people who sent up satellites could operate under what’s known as “big sky” theory. Space is so vast, so spacious, that we could never possibly use it all up. History, however, has repeatedly shown that whenever we think something is too abundant for humans to deplete, we’re wrong. And so it is in space, where more and more satellites and space junk threaten to crash into each other and crowd out the future. In 2016, the Air Force’s 18th Space Control Squadron had to tell satellite operators to watch out for each other 3,995,874 times.The burden of sending all those safety messages has rested squarely on the Defense Department’s shoulders. But on Monday, President Donald Trump signed Space Policy Directive-3, which shifts some of that space traffic responsibility to a new owner: the Department of Commerce.Commerce? Indeed. “I am instructing my administration to embrace the budding commercial space industry,” Trump said in a meeting with the National Space Council, where he signed the directive. It’s long and covers a range of topics, but its most notable decrees deal with the responsibility for space safety.Part of that involves leaving some commercial space concerns to the Department of Commerce. See, technically, the military is supposed to be taking care of military problems. But as the number of satellites grows, so does the amount of time the DOD has to spend telling DirecTV to duck. “The growing demands and complexity of the safety of spaceflight missions are increasingly competing for resources with the national security mission of the US military,” wrote Brian Weeden of the Secure World Foundation, a space sustainability think tank, in SpaceNews. While the DOD will continue to maintain the authoritative catalog of objects in space, the responsibility for safety, warnings, and public dissemination of data will fall mainly to the Department of Commerce—which now has to deal with decades’ worth of orbital objects, on top of all the new ones approaching the launch pad.last_img read more

three and it was clear that the prodigy had made a comeback Those obsessed with statistics and results will say that things didn’t go Pakistan’s way but that is like saying India and Pakistan played a cricket match that day The reason it ultimately became so much more is down to Amir’s virtuoso performance –Aashray Hariharan Virat Kohli’s masterclass against Australia in World T20 A do-or-die match a tricky chase and a magisterial innings It was just another day in the life of Virat Kohli as he guided India into the semifinals of the World T20 with a splendid knock of 81 against Australia There are good innings there are great innings and then there are innings which stay with you forever Kohli’s masterclass in Mohali brought back memories of Sachin Tendulkar’s similar masterpieces Australia had piled a decent 160 on the board In reply India lost Shikhar Dhawan early In walked Kohli but he witnessed Rohit Sharma Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh walk back to the hut in quick succession Captain MS Dhoni joined Kohli in the middle and suddenly it was like the inning received a shot of adrenaline Ones got converted into twos and twos into threes as the two batsmen hared down the wicket at blistering pace That set the tone for Kohli and he launched into the Aussies with a slew of thunderous drives lovely lofts and skillful dabs to power India past the finish line with five balls to spare He scored 82 off 51 balls laced with nine fours and two sixes in what was a breathtaking innings – one which had power grace placement thinking precision control dedication and determination It was a day when he brought back glorious memories of the past – Jigar Mehta Australia’s decline The once mighty Australian cricket team ‘the invincibles’ with one of the best batting and bowling line ups in the history of international cricket saw its fortunes decline steeply this year Losing the Test series to Sri Lanka for the first time – Lankans had previously beaten the Kangaroos only once – and going down 2-0 to the rising powerhouse South Africa signified the end of an era The Australian selectors in an attempt to get back to winning ways chose to drop six players after the second Test match in their series against South Africa But their bid to revive the team’s dipping fortunes seemed to yield no dividend as the near-scare against Pakistan at Brisbane reestablished the belief that the current bunch of players are nothing but the pale shadows of a glorious past The re-calibration of the entire team is a significant moment this year as for the first time since the early 1980s when established players like Greg Chappell retired and the onus of leading a nascent side fell upon an inexperienced Kim Hughes the team faces the tough task of reviving its former glory –Aprameya Rao Pakistan win at Lord’s centurion Misbah-ul-Haq does press-ups Pakistan beat England by 75 runs in the first Test of their four-match Test series The fact that the win was at Lord’s and that it had some magnificent individual performances from the visiting side made it even sweeter There were a lot of things that could’ve gone wrong – this was Pakistan’s first Test in England after the spot-fixing scandal one of the protagonists Mohammad Amir was making his return there were a lot of questions about players’ form and experience But all of that faded when captain Misbah-ul-Haq at the age of 42 got his name on the Lord’s honour board on his debut at the iconic ground And the solid ton was further overshadowed by his celebration – as soon as he had completed his 10th Test century Misbah dropped to the ground and did a series of press-ups "I promised the army guys I would do the push-ups if I got a century" he later said His unique celebration was repeated by the entire team when they won the see-saw Test The team had gone to an army boot camp before the tour to improve their fitness and after the win a routine of press-ups was followed by a military-style salute as a tribute The four-match series was drawn 2-2 but it was a moment of celebration for Pakistan who went on to briefly become the number one Test team in the world It was this win and gesture that lead to Misbah winning the ICC Spirit of Cricket award and hence was one of the most striking cricket moments of 2016 –Zenia Dcunha Karun Nair triple century A triple hundred for @karun126 followed by the declaration from #TeamIndia skipper India 759/7d lead #ENG(477) by 282 runs pictwittercom/q18MnGeo59 — BCCI (@BCCI) December 19 2016 Coming into his third Test innings Karun Nair was undoubtedly hoping to make a case for his continued selection Having been called up to the starting XI due to injuries to several first team players Karun’s performances had paled in comparison to those of fellow rookie Jayant Yadav However Karun stepped up in a big way for India forging partnerships with KL Rahul Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in the process of scoring an unbeaten 303 Scoring a triple century as one’s maiden hundred is an incredible achievement especially considering Karun is only the second Indian batsman to score a triple ton His runs also acted as a platform for India’s eventual victory in the Test sealing the series 4-0 Thus Karun’s heroics capped off a good year for Indian Cricket and stands out as one of the best moments of the year –Derrek Chundelikkatt Bangalore
