Egypt moves to take control of independent mosques

first_imgCAIRO- Egyptian authorities decided Tuesday to take control of independent mosques, state news agency MENA reported, in a move aimed at curbing Islamist dissent.The measure aims to further tighten the state’s grip on all mosques in the country, deeply polarised since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.Morsi’s supporters and his Muslim Brotherhood have been targets of a brutal government crackdown since the army ousted him last July. The military-installed government accuses Islamist groups, particularly the Muslim Brotherhood, of using mosques to spread their ideology and enroll new recruits.Religious Endowments Minister Mohamed Mokhtar tasked his office with bringing all independent mosques under the ministry’s control within a month, MENA said.Egypt has around 130,000 mosques, of which 10,000 are not under the government supervision, ministry official Sabry Ebada told AFP last month.Morsi’s supporters often stage protests after the weekly Friday prayers.In January, the ministry decided to set a theme topic sent to preachers around the country for the Friday sermon.Scuffles have often erupted between Morsi’s supporters and opponents during the Friday prayers, particularly when the sermon appears to favors one side over the other.In late 2013, the ministry dismissed 55,000 imams (prayer leaders) who didnot graduate from Cairo’s Al-Azhar University, the most prestigious institution in Sunni Islam.The ministry requires imams to receive permission to lead prayers at mosques.last_img read more

Attempt to spread racial hatred using Jaffna clash condemned

The TNA appealed to all students not to permit any recurrence of such incidents or anything that will hinder genuine reconciliation amongst communities in our country. The clash occurred when a welcome ceremony was held for new entrants to the Jaffna university yesterday. The IUSF urged university students to join hands against racial disharmony and prevent politicians from gaining the upper hand from such incidents.Meanwhile, the Tamil National Alliance expressed it’s deep shock over Saturday’s clashes that took place at the University of Jaffna.“We regret that several students have sustained injuries and that the Sinhala students had to be evacuated from the University and Jaffna as a precautionary measure,” the TNA said in a statement. Some Tamil students had opposed the Kandyan dance being staged to welcome the students and this led to the clash.IUSF said that if clashes take place based on a race or religion it will prevent more important social issues from being addressed. An attempt being made to spread racial hatred using the clash at the Jaffna university yesterday has been condemned.The Inter University Student’s Federation (IUSF), while condemning the incident, raised concerns over attempts by some groups to make use of the incident to incite racial hatred. The clash involved a group of Sinhalese and Tamil students of the Science Faculty of the Jaffna University. “Whilst inviting the students who have been evacuated to return to Jaffna, we urge the other students who remain to welcome them and assure them of their safety as they resume their studies We call upon the students and the authorities to work together in creating the right conditions for students from different backgrounds to live and study together in the University of Jaffna in the future,” the TNA said in a statement. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Stocks tumble but TSX gets some strength from bump in gold price

Stocks tumble, but TSX gets some strength from bump in gold price Stock markets tumbled Thursday, but the Toronto Stock Exchange’s main index fared better than its U.S. counterparts due to the strength of gold and other commodities.The S&P/TSX composite index dropped 48.57 points to 15,033.64.South of the border, the Dow Jones industrial average fell 274.14 points to 21,750.73, while the S&P 500 shed 38.10 points to 2,430.01. The Nasdaq composite slipped 123.20 points to 6,221.91.“I think on a relative basis, Canada’s having, you know, actually quite a good day,” said Tim Morton, senior vice-president at TD Wealth.The Toronto index saw some of its losses offset by gains in gold stocks — with the global gold sector leading the day’s performance.The December gold contract climbed US$9.50 to US$1,292.40 an ounce.Gold is seen as a safe haven for investors and they turned to the commodity as American indices dipped and reports came in of a terrorist attack in Spain. A van killed a dozen people and injured others when it drove into pedestrians at the Las Ramblas promenade frequented by tourists.American markets took a bigger hit than in Canada partly because political noise out of the country continued to unnerve people slightly, said Morton.He added the U.S. markets have had a strong year and sometimes need a rest or sell-off to remain grounded.The Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of 79.07 cents US, up 0.32 of a U.S. cent.The September crude contract advanced 31 cents to US$47.09 per barrel.

GoPro creator sells stake to Foxconn

first_imgThere’s no shortage of videos out there of people doing amazing things with cameras strapped to their bodies. In recent years, many of those have been recorded on GoPro cameras. Recently, the creator of GoPro has decided to sell his stake in the company to Foxconn, who will likely start manufacturing most of the pieces for GoPro cameras.Nicholas Woodman built the GoPro name up from scratch. When the company first started making their durable body-mounted cameras, the goal was to get local sports shops to carry them. Watching as a surfer or snowboarder does their thing is a lot of fun from the sidelines, but it is way more fun from the viewpoint of the wearer. Because of this, GoPro quickly became successful, and videos of crazy people doing crazy things with cameras strapped to their bodies became its own YouTube sensation.On top of being quite durable, the GoPro cameras are WiFi capable, typically come with remotes for control without having to touch the camera, and can record 1080p at 30fps. The cameras are light and rely on MicroSD for storage, giving them a somewhat limited capacity of 64GB currently. There are pages of accessories for these cameras, including extra batteries and LCD screens that can be added on, making the cameras incredibly versatile. Considering that one of the more expensive GoPro models is only $400, it’s not hard to see why they are so popular.The explosive growth, reaching $600 million in sales in less than ten years, drew the attention of investors like Foxconn. Now, the Chinese manufacturer owns 11.7 million shares of GoPro. The expectation now is that Foxconn will be able to manufacture the GoPro cameras now, and Nicholas Woodman gets to walk away from the deal a very wealthy man after selling 8.9% stake in the company (at $17.08 a share). Foxconn will likely only be considered for parts moving forward if they have the best prices for materials.It’s unlikely that this purchase will affect the GoPro line in any way, except to maybe allow for less expensive models in the future and show a continued positive sign of growth for the company.last_img read more

Grand Lucayan Should be Ready for 2017 Winter Season

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT Related Items:#magneticmedianews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, July 27, 2017 – Nassau – Renovations at the Grand Lucayan in Grand Bahama are expected to begin within the next month with the facility expected to be ready in time for the 2017 Winter Season.Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert Alexander Minnis said, in his national address, July 26, that the Government of The Bahamas is intent on resuscitating the Grand Lucayan “as rapidly and as sustainably as possible” and thereafter sell its equity to one of the existing partners or other investors in a bid to turn the Grand Bahama economy around.Dr. Minnis said the Government has also identified a number of integrated travel and hospitality companies that can bring not only quality brands to Grand Bahama, “but also much-needed air transportation.”Prime Minister Minnis said his Administration will focus on a number of tourism initiatives “to get our economy going again” while not excluding the urgent need for diversification within tourism and other sectors and other potential areas of growth.Prime Minister Minnis said this will not happen without a successfully operating Grand Lucayan, a successfully operating Atlantis and a successfully operating Baha Mar Resort.“I recently toured Baha Mar where I received assurances from the managers of the hotel of a timeline for the mega-resort coming fully on stream. This will help to improve the fiscal condition of the country inclusive of public revenue,” Prime Minister Minnis said.“I have also visited Atlantis on Paradise Island. It is most important to our economy that both of these mega-resorts succeed. My Administration will do all that we can to ensure this outcome.“We need to get our people back to work and to get our economy on the path to making it again the envy of our region. This will not happen without a successful Baha Mar. Their success is The Bahamas’ success. We will do all we can to aid them in attaining this success,” Prime Minister Minnis added.Dr. Minnis said statistics show that while at least 65 per cent of the economic activity and more than 50 per cent of the jobs of The Bahamas are delivered from the tourism sector, just 60 per cent of the country’s hotel and resort rooms are occupied annually.“If we manage to achieve near 80 per cent occupancy in our hotels on a year-round basis, we will increase our economic activity and jobs from tourism by one-third,” Prime Minister Minnis said.“This will cause a considerable dent in the unemployment problem facing our country. Even as I have spoken at some length on Grand Lucayan, Atlantis and Baha Mar, my Government will also address the needs of the more than 250 smaller and licensed properties in Nassau, Paradise Island, Grand Bahama and throughout our Family Islands.“We will introduce further incentives to small hotels where local produce is on the menu,” Prime Minister Minnis added.

Delta Junction state parks user fees to stay the same this year

first_imgQuartz Lake State Recreation Area, along with the Clearwater facility, generate the most revenue of all Delta-area parks. (Karla Brown/Flickr)User fees at Delta Junction area state parks will stay the same this summer as the facilities transition to private management.Listen nowThe state announced the award of permits this week to K&K Operations to run the Big Delta State Historical Park, and to Big Dipper Adventures to operate campgrounds, boat launches and other facilities at Quartz Lake, Clearwater, Delta, and Donnelly Creek.Northern Region State Parks superintendent Brooks Ludwig said the contractors do not plan to change user fees, but notes that the legislature allows leeway to do so in the future.”For daily parking right now, the charge is $5 per day per vehicle and the maximum they could charge would be $10 per day per vehicle,” Ludwig said. “Boat launching right now is $15 per launch and retrieve. That could go up to $20. Firewood bundles are $8, and it can go up to $15 per bundle. Overnight camping is $15 a night. That can go as high as $30 a night.”Delta-area parks generate an average of $80,000 a year, most of which comes from the larger Clearwater and Quartz Lake facilities. Ludwig said the contractors, are required to share revenues with the state.”For operating the parks in the Delta area — Quartz Lake, Clearwater, Delta and Donnelly — the contractor will pay to the state a flat $2,000 permit fee,” Ludwig said. “In addition to that, they have negotiated a three percent of their gross camping revenues and three percent of their gross revenues for canoe/kayak rentals at Clearwater State recreation site will be earmarked to the state.”Ludwig adds that 3 percent of profits from Big Delta State Historical Park Delta will go into a maintenance fund. The Delta area parks closed a month ago due to state budget cuts. State Parks says agency staff helped the contractors re-open the sites Tuesday.last_img read more

Biological Clock Discoveries By 3 Americans Earn Nobel Prize

first_imgTwitter user @LisaMcGonagleBiological clock discoveries by 3 Americans earn Nobel prize.Three Americans won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine on Monday for their discoveries about the body’s biological clock, opening up whole new fields of research and raising awareness about the importance of getting enough sleep. Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young won the 9-million-kronor ($1.1 million) prize for their work on finding genetic mechanisms behind circadian rhythms, which adapt the workings of the body to different phases of the day, influencing sleep, behavior, hormone levels, body temperature and metabolism. They “were able to peek inside our biological clock and elucidate its inner workings,” the Nobel citation said. “Circadian dysfunction has been linked to sleep disorders, as well as depression, bipolar disorder, cognitive function, memory formation and some neurological diseases,” according to a Nobel background report. The awardees’ work stems back to 1984, when Rosbash and Hall, both at Brandeis, along with Young isolated the “period gene” in fruit flies. Hall and Rosbash found that a protein encoded by the gene accumulated during the night and degraded during daytime. A decade later, Young discovered another “clock gene.” The work was done using fruit flies. “I am very pleased for the fruit fly,” Rosbash, a 73-year-old professor at Brandeis University, told The Associated Press. He said he got the call about the award just after 5 a.m. “When the landline rings at that hour, normally it is because someone died,” he said. “I’m still a little overwhelmed.” But he added “I stand on the shoulders of giants. This is a very humbling award.” Young is at Rockefeller University; Hall formerly was a visiting professor at the University of Maine but said his prize work was done at Brandeis. Hall, 72, wryly noted that he was already awake when the call about the prize came around 5 a.m. because of age-related changes in his own circadian rhythms. “I said ‘Is this a prank’?” he told the AP by telephone from Cambridge, Maine. The winners have raised “awareness of the importance of a proper sleep hygiene” said Juleen Zierath of the Nobel Assembly at the Karolinska Institute, which chooses the laureates. Carlos Ibanez, another assembly member, said the research was important in understanding how humans adapt to shiftwork. Michael Hastings, a scientist at the U.K. Medical Research Council, said the discoveries had opened up a whole new field of study for biology and medicine. “Until then, the body clock was viewed as a sort of black box,” Hastings told the AP. “We knew nothing about its operation. But what they did was get the genes that made the body clock, and once you’ve got the genes, you can take the field wherever you want to.” “It’s a field that has exploded massively, propelled by the discoveries by these guys,” he told the AP. Hall said scientists have known about circadian rhythms since the 1700s but his research team looked at the mechanics and underpinnings of how it works. He said understanding that can give researchers a chance to address the circadian rhythm disorders that contribute to sleep problems. “Our wellbeing is affected when there is a temporary mismatch between our external environment and this internal biological clock, for example when we travel across several time zones and experience ‘jet lag,’” the Nobel statement said, explaining the research. “There are also indications that chronic misalignment between our lifestyle and the rhythm dictated by our inner time keeper is associated with increased risk for various diseases.” That misalignment may be associated with diseases including cancer and degenerative neurological conditions. “If you understand how the normal process works, that gives you a chance, not an inevitability, but a chance to influence the internal workings of the clock and possibly to improve a patient’s wellbeing,” Hall said. “I think most of its practical applications lie ahead,” said Rosbash.

Facebook Admits to Collecting Call and Text Message History From Some Users

first_imgFacebook admitted Sunday that it has in fact been collecting this type of data, but painted it as a way for the company to improve its service. “This helps you find and stay connected with the people you care about, and provides you with a better experience across Facebook,” the company said in a blog post. ” This feature does not collect the content of your calls or text messages. Your information is securely stored and we do not sell this information to third parties.”It also clarified that this type of data has only been collected from some users, specifically those who have used Facebook Messenger or Facebook Lite on Android, and also opted into the continuous upload of phone contact, text and call information.

The data was collected on an opt-in basis, but the breath of information retained further adds to the privacy backlash the company is currently facing.First reports about Facebook collecting this data surfaced last week, when some users made use of a Facebook feature that allows them to download all of their data from the company’s servers. Some users found that these records included detailed records about phone calls they made in the past, including numbers called, as well as date, time and duration of each and every call. Facebook first added this option to the Android Messenger app in 2015, and subsequently also to the Facebook Lite app. On Monday, Facebook also detailed how users can opt out of sharing this type of information if they previously allowed the company to access it.The disclosure comes as Facebook is already under scrutiny for its role in the Cambridge Analytica scandal. The Trump-linked data company was able to access the personal data from as many as 50 million Facebook users in 2014, and subsequently may have used that data to target users with political messaging. On Monday, news broke that the FTC has opened up an investigation into Facebook’s handling of its users data.last_img read more

Winning organizations make bold moves the Niners hiring John Lynch is just

first_imgThe 49’ers shocked the football world yesterday when they announced the hiring of Fox Sports NFL analyst John Lynch as their new GM. Colin loves John Lynch personally, but the move by San Francisco certainly qualifies as shocking.There’s a difference between bold and bizarre. Traditionally successful teams like New England, or Golden State in the NBA, make bold moves, poorly run franchises like the Niners, Browns and Bills make bizarre ones. San Francisco hiring John Lynch as their general manger definitely qualifies as bizarre.“There is a big gap between bold and bizarre. Giving a guy a 6-year GM contract who has never been a general manager. I think this goes beyond bold. I think it’s bizarre.”Colin isn’t a fan of teams that use catchy marketing slogans during unexpected Super Bowl runs. NFL teams with catchy nicknames may make it to the big game, but rarely win it. Last year, the Panthers rode the slogan “Keep Pounding” all the way to the Super Bowl, where they got pounded by the Broncos.Today, however, he took some time to speculate what a Patriots t-shirt – or hooded sweatshirt – slogan might look like if they did have one. The extremely boring slogans include “Do Your Job”, “First In the Building”, and “Know Your Role.” Awful.  Leave the slogans to the one-and-done teams, the Patriots only use one: “Super Bowl Champions.”Recent rumors speculate that the Broncos may be interested in acquiring Tony Romo if he’s released, and becomes a free agent. Colin thinks that given their relationship, Jerry Jones will be inclined to grant Romo’s release, but he doesn’t think Denver is the best fit. He thinks the Cardinals are a better landing spot, and reports out of Arizona say Carson Palmer is contemplating retirement. Wherever he ends up, the Tony Romo sweepstakes is going to be the sexiest story of the NFL offseason.“I maintain that Arizona, to me, feels like the best fit for Tony Romo. A lot of people like Denver, I don’t.”Guests:Sam Farmer – Senior NFL Reporter for the L.A. Times is on set to explain why Goodell handing the trophy to Tom Brady will be anti-climactic; Goodell’s current standing among NFL owners; his reaction to the hiring of John Lynch as the Niners GM; and which Super Bowl team was his favorite to cover.Greg Jennings – Former Pro Bowl wide receiver and FS1 NFL Analyst is on set to discuss his Super Bowl experience; how the Super Bowl is different from any other game; how he handled his free time before the Super Bowl; and what advice Packers head coach Mike McCarthy gave him that helped calm his nerves.Lance Zierlein – NFL Draft Analyst at NFL.com is in set to discuss how he evaluates quarterbacks; his draft scouting reports on Dak Prescott and Aaron Rodgers; why North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky has similar arm talent to Aaron Rodgers; and his scouting report on Deshaun Watson.Cris Carter – FS1 NFL Analyst and Pro Football Hall of Famer explains why he wouldn’t trade being in the HOF for a Super Bowl ring; his take on the John Lynch hiring in San Francisco; why he couldn’t be a GM right now; and why he doesn’t think a minority candidate with Lynch’s lack of experience would ever be hired to the same position.last_img read more

We’ve recently been hearing a lot about 3D-bioprinting, a technique in which small body parts can be 3D-printed out of biological tissue. Now, new technology promises to make the process quicker and thus more practical than ever.Ordinarily, bioprinting is performed in a fashion much like regular 3D printing – an object is slowly built up as successive layers of material are deposited one on top of the other. This means that it can take hours or perhaps days to produce even a simple item.Lately, though, scientists have been experimenting with a faster method of printing a variety of non-biological objects, which is known as volumetric printing. Working with colleagues at the Netherlands’ Utrecht University, a team from the Swiss EMPA research institute has adapted that technology to produce body parts measuring up to several square centimeters in size – these parts have included a valve similar to a heart valve, a meniscus, and a complex-shaped section of femur.The process involves projecting a laser beam down into a slowly-spinning tube that’s filled with a stem cell-laden photosensitive hydrogel. By selectively focusing the light energy at specific locations within the tube, it’s possible to solidify the gel in those places only, building up the desired three-dimensional object within a matter of seconds. The stem cells are unharmed in the process.Next, the scientists add endothelial cells, which are the type that line the interior surface of blood vessels. This causes the item to become vascularized, while the stem cells proceed to differentiate into the type of cells needed (i.e: heart cells, bone cells, etc). The finished item may subsequently be utilized either as a replacement in a human recipient, or in medical testing, reducing the need for lab animals.”This is just the beginning,” says Christophe Moser, head of EPFL’s Laboratory of Applied Photonics Devices. “We believe that our method is inherently scalable towards mass fabrication and could be used to produce a wide range of cellular tissue models, not to mention medical devices and personalized implants.”The volumetric bioprinting process is described in a paper that was recently published in the journal Advanced Materials, and is demonstrated in the video below.

Australias tourism campaigns win accolades for brand excellence

first_imgTourism Australia’s brand campaign, ‘Restaurant Australia’ has won the CMO Asia Award for Brand Excellence in Services, Hospitality and Travel & Tourism sector. The sixth edition of the awards was held recently in Singapore. The tourism board also collected a Certificate of Merit for promoting the ‘Best of Australia’ experiences amidst the ICC World Cup 2015 through its ‘Straight Drive to the WONDERS DOWN UNDER’ campaign. Additionally, the ‘Inspiring Million Aussie Holidays’ campaign was awarded for the Best Use of LinkedIn and Best Use of Social Media Marketing. The awards were presented to the representatives of OMD Worldwide, the global creative agency for Tourism Australia, who were responsible for planning and executing all three campaigns in India.Mamatha Morvankar, Managing Director – West, OMD said, “Winning any award is a testament to the fact that the work produced has struck the right chord with our consumers. For the Restaurant Australia launch, on media we leveraged the most relevant tent pole property, Masterchef Australia and layered it with multiple renditions across various media. Also, the partnership with LinkedIn was based not only on strong consumer insights, but the platform itself was most suitable to reach out to our affluent corporate consumers. The fact that more and more Indian tourists are now travelling to Australia is testimony to our efforts that we have been able to connect with the right audiences in an engaging manner.”With India climbing to the eight spot among inbound source markets to Australia, Indian tourist’s contribution to the Australian economy has boasted too. “The total spend that Indian tourists contribute to the Australian economy has increased by 35%. Indian tourists, in all, contribute close to AUD 960 million to the Australian economy. The travellers’ spend needs to grow by at least 15-16% over the next five years. India’s ranking has significantly improved from being the 11th inbound market to Australia to being the 8th,” said Nishant Kashikar, Country Manager, India & Gulf, Tourism Australia.last_img read more
