Morocco draws UN attention on situation of children in Tindouf camps

Geneva – Morocco on Thursday drew the attention of the UN Committee for the Rights of the Child on the plight of children in Tindouf camps, southwestern Algeria.During the examination of the third and fourth periodic reports of Morocco before the committee on the rights of the child, the Minister of Solidarity, Women, Family and Social Development, Bassima Hakkaoui called on Algeria, the host country of the camps, to shoulder its responsibility under international instruments of human rights.The world is shocked everyday by the situation of innocent children in conflict areas, facing recruitment, embargo and deportation, the minister underlined. In Morocco, the military service is non-compulsory for adults and “in no case does include children,” said Hakkaoui, calling on “all people of conscience to carry out a common action to end the various tragedies caused by the involvement of children in armed conflicts.”For the minister, Morocco is committed to continue its interaction with the UN Committee for the Rights of the Child and all UN mechanisms, motivated by a strong desire to serve the cause of human Rights and discuss various related issues. read more

NFL Scrambling to Save Face with Independent Investigation into

Former FBI director Robert Mueller has been hired by the NFL to investigate the NFL about the Ray Rice domestic violence case. And if that seems like a conflict of interest, it only adds to the drama of this continuously evolving story.Mueller, who was the director of the FBI for 12 years, will have access to all NFL records, said commissioner Roger Goodell, whose reign over the nation’s top sport can be described as tenuous. The Associated Press reported Wednesday that police in Atlantic City sent to the league footage inside a casino showing Rice knock unconscious his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, and had a message from someone in the NFL office to prove it.Goodell and the league vehemently denies that anyone there saw the footage before Monday, when TMZ released a version of the events that initially led to Rice’s two-game suspension. The releasing of the tape prompted the Baltimore Ravens, who said they had not seen the video either, to fire Rice and the NFL to dismiss the disgraceful two-game ban and offer an indefinite suspension.Now in comes Mueller, a highly respected official, but one hired by the NFL to investigate the NFL, making cynics wonder if the fix is in. For sure, Goodell’s tenure as commissioner of the league rests in the balance.Mueller, based in Washington, D.C., is a partner in the law firm of WilmerHale, which helped negotiate the NFL’s Sunday Ticket package with DirecTV. The firm also has represented Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder, and several former members of the firm have taken positions with NFL teams.Terry O’Neill, the president of the National Organization for Women, issued a statement late Wednesday, calling Mueller’s appointment “just window dressing.”“The NFL does not just have a Ray Rice problem, they have a violence against women problem,” the statement read. “NOW continues to ask for Roger Goodell to resign, and for his successor to appoint an independent investigator with full authority to gather factual data about domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking within the entire NFL community — not just regarding the Ray Rice incident — and to recommend real and lasting reforms.”A league executive, speaking early Wednesday before the AP report was released, didn’t believe the Rice controversy would cost Goodell his job — unless the video was viewed before Monday.“No,” the executive told ESPN.com, “but if Goodell and the league saw the video beforehand, he is not commissioner in March for the league meetings.” read more

Weather watchers complain new BBC weather website suggests its raining every day

first_imgA more traditional BBC weather forecastCredit:BBC/Universal News And Sport (Europe) James Werner, a meteorology Phd student at Exeter University, wrote: “So the @bbcweather app is using data from the Met Office, and BBC Weather online is using data from Meteogroup and showing a very different forecast.“Obviously there is going to be some sort of transition period, but mixing these is just misleading for the general public?”On Wednesday another Twitter user wrote: “Yesterday it said cloudy but looking out of the window there was torrential rain & gale force winds.”The BBC said users would benefit from several improved functions, including: New 14-day forecast New graphics, with such as ‘chance of rain’ and ‘feels like’ temperature readings Thousands of new locations “to make sure you can find the weather for where you are and wherever you want to go” New interactive map, helping to show the bigger picture of weather ahead in your area. Mr Burnett added: “People sometimes say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” so I want to emphasise this is not change for change’s sake.“We carried out extensive user testing and prototyping to find out what worked and what didn’t so we could pinpoint improvements in design and user experience.” One wrote on Mr Burnett’s blog last week: “This new website is terrible – not a patch on the old one. The information for my area today is ‘drizzle and breezy’ far too brief – no mention of any sun, yet what can I see outside? Sun!”Berenice Tallett, from Maidstone, wrote: “Why am I now only shown weather for the whole of the U.K. and not just Kent and why is it not in English but some incomprehensible gibberish?“The old system was fine – why in this day and age are things changed just for the sake of it?”Another user, called Seffrid, said: “The whole thing is just a muddle compared to the previous straightforward version, and yes it is a classic case of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”!“Focus groups and surveys are never representative of most users, as the comments here demonstrate yet again.”Twitter users were similarly unimpressed.Anne-Louise Quinton, 51, from Leeds, wrote on the social media site: “Don’t like the new BBC weather app. Not very accurate anyway and now edging its bets by always showing a possibility of rain and too much going on. Faff over clarity.” A more traditional BBC weather forecast Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

There have even been complaints that the BBC weather app gives a different forecast to the website version.center_img But users say that so far the new service has proved a big disappointment. When the BBC unveiled its new weather website and app users were promised a vastly improved service, with more accurate forecasts and exciting interactive features.The corporation promised more personalised forecasts, with thousands of new locations and bright new graphics to make it easier for users to decide whether to leave their coat at home or take their umbrella with them.But weather watchers have pointed out that the outlook is far from sunny with the new website.In fact, they say, it appears to suggest its raining every day, wherever they happen to live.And as if that was not enough, many of them say they find the redesign incomprehensible, leaving them somewhat under a cloud.The changes are part of BBC Weather’s switch to a new weather services supplier, MeteoGroup.Introducing the changes in a BBC blog, Michael Burnett, Executive Product Manager, BBC Future Media, said: “Over the next few weeks, exciting new updates will be coming to the BBC’s weather service. Millions of users of the BBC Weather website and applications on iOS, Android and Kindle will start to see a number of improvements.“This is just the beginning. There will be more improvements over the next few months and new features which aim to enhance your user experience.” He added: “Like most new digital products these days, we will be phasing the roll-out of the enhanced services to make sure they keep running to the highest standard.”The BBC pointed out that both its weather website and app are used by large numbers of users and it is normal to see some complaints and comments when updates to such a widely used service are made.“We’re confident we’ve launched an improved BBC Weather website with useful new features and we’ve already received lots of positive feedback on the new BBC Weather app – as with any change, we know it will take some users time to get accustomed to the updates,” said a spokesman.

BBCs Les Miserables adaptation set for frosty reception from musical stars angry

Andrew Davies: ‘I’m rescuing it from that awful musical’. I WAS looking forward to watching this. MORON. What a tremendous way to lose half your audience. It’s only been seen by 70 million people. ⁦@lesmisofficial⁩ can’t be that “awful”. 🇫🇷x https://t.co/ih0ZiRy5Gs— Dean Chisnall (@DChisnall) December 23, 2018 Another Eponone, Eva Noblezada, who performed the West End role in 2016, tweeted: “Well, I had a GREAT A– time doing this FUN A– musical and can speak for the millions who think it’s amazing.“Lol. Merry Christmas Grinch.“And I’m still gonna watch it cause it looks fierce.”Scores of fans have also vowed to boycott the show after the stars of the musical spoke of their anger. It remains to be seen whether the BBC’s production will change their minds.Davies’ adaptation contains little to no music and is based on the 1,231 page book, which many viewers will not have read.The series stars The Affair actor Dominic West as prisoner Jean Valjean while David Oyelowo plays police inspector Javert, who is pursuing him. It is arguably the jewel in the crown of the BBC’s Christmas and New Year television offering, with thousands of people across the country excited to see the glamorous, high-budget adaptation of Les Miserables as it premieres tonight.However, one group of people who are not impressed by the series are those who acted in the musical productions of the tale in the West End after the screenwriter made disparaging comments about the musical.Andrew Davies wrote in The Telegraph last week that his adaptation, based on the book, “will rescue Victor Hugo’s novel from the clutches of that awful musical with its doggerel lyrics.”This proclamation received a frosty reception from those who had acted in the musical, which brought the work to mainstream attention.Dean Chisnall, who currently plays Jean Valjean at Queen’s Theatre in London, said the screenwriter was a “moron”, tweeting: “Andrew Davies: ‘I’m rescuing it from that awful musical’.  I WAS looking forward to watching this. MORON.“What a tremendous way to lose half your audience.  It’s only been seen by 70 million people. ⁦@lesmisofficial⁩ can’t be that ‘awful’.”Nancy Sullivan, who played Eponine in the same theatre from 2008-2010 agreed, writing: “Without the success of @lesmisofficial musical very unlikely the opportunity would’ve arisen to write the tv version.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Olivia Colman as Madame Thenardier Olivia Colman as Madame ThenardierCredit:Robert Viglasky West has also said that he hopes the production brings viewers back to the source material rather than reminding them of the musical.He said: “It’s been a real inspiration and total joy to bring this masterpiece to dramatic life, and if our portrayal brings people back to the book then that is a great thing.”Andrew Davies is a master of condensing and distillation. He has distilled a massive book into six hours of television. He’s been at it a long time. “He’s so experienced. Whenever I’ve opened a book and thought, ‘oh this is a bit I particularly like’, it’s in his script. In that way, it’s very exciting because I don’t remember the last time when a book was dealt with in such detail.”The show also stars Olivia Colman, Ellie Bamber, Josh O’Connor and Adeel Akhtar. read more

Christmas morning with the dog cats at the Humane Society

first_imgWASHOUGAL — Kira is an 8-year-old pit bull who exudes happiness to meet a new person or go for a walk along the Columbia River dike near her temporary home at the West Columbia Gorge Humane Society.On Christmas Day, she was also the only dog in the 12-kennel shelter.“What she wants is a human and a nice comfy bed,” said Hilda Neithardt, a volunteer who helps care for dogs, including Kira, on Sunday mornings, including Christmas. She and another shelter volunteer, Amanda Prince, told Kira’s story while a third volunteer, Lorraine Steele, took her for a long walk.Kira once had a home, but ended up in the shelter three years ago. She was adopted, but was returned to the shelter this fall when her family was expecting a human baby and could no longer care for Kira, too.Most dogs that come to the Washougal shelter are quickly adopted. Kira is hard to place, because she needs to be the only dog in the household and is middle-aged. But with her friendly demeanor toward humans, she’s easy to love, the shelter volunteers say.“She’s a wonderful girl,” Neithardt said.Though she needs a home, Kira’s Christmas was far from gloomy. She started with a walk just after sunrise while Prince and Neithardt cleaned her cage, prepared her breakfast and arranged a large overstuffed bed complete with a fresh blanket still warm from the clothes dryer.last_img read more

Redefining Success in Print Media

first_img Engaging audiences on different platforms was a key theme throughout the day. While many publishers have established social media platforms, it remains an area that brands want to improve upon. Snapchat Discover and Facebook Live were a favorite topic, as they’re new platforms many companies have yet to crack open. But at this year’s min day summit in New York on Tuesday, several panelists noted that print is still an important platform and will likely remain relevant for at least the next ten years. Digital and print are often framed in opposition, but by seeing the two platforms as complementary, one can conceive of print’s continuing success. The definition of a successful print magazine just might have to change. Panelists Larry Burstein, publisher at New York Media, Christian Baesler, president of Bauer Xcel Media, and Scott Burton, executive editor of ESPN The Magazine, specifically explored this concept. Each panelist took a different approach towards print and digital. NEW YORK—Over the past decade or so, it has become relatively common to hear the phrase “print is dead.” In this environment, context and engagement matter more than ever. “If you create a better experience in these mobile environments, you’re more likely to succeed in the long term,” he said. This means erasing loading time—if it takes longer than ten seconds, half your audience is gone. Google’s AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) thereby aims to create a faster environment for consumers to engage with content. “The next $50 billion will come from a better mobile experience,” announced Craig DiNatali, Google’s director of News Media Partnerships and the keynote speaker. Media is increasingly being consumed in different verticals, as behavior and consumption has changed drastically. Almost 80% of people access news on mobile devices today.   The rest of the min day Summit saw more than 25 leaders from magazine media, advertising agencies, and tech companies discuss specific challenges, strategies, and opportunities in the industry. Speakers examined a wide range of topics, from exploring the possibilities of virtual reality to understanding Hispanic marketing. In contrast, Bauer advocates for separate operations entirely. “Editorially, we found the tools you need as an editor to succeed in print versus digital are very different,” Baesler explained.center_img A lively group of industry professionals gathered at the Yale Club to hear the speakers, which included Kate Brady, director of media strategy and innovation at PepsiCo, Cathy Glosser, SVP licensing for Condé Nast, Mike Suggett, VP, executive producer, original programming at Ten/MindOverEye, and Michael Brownstein, VP and CRO of Meredith Corp. Burstein emphasized that New York Media focuses heavily on “reaching the audience in any way they want to be reached,” by integrating departments. ESPN the Magazine also uses an assimilated approach to take advantage of ESPN’s enormous reach. This allows for strategizing across all channels, resulting in wide coverage that engages audiences beyond the Magazine’s reach. Despite the different approaches, all three panelists maintained that print would be successful in the future, provided one understands the different context within which print exists today. Burstein and Burton agreed print magazines need to identify themselves as a place where people can access great stories. Certain content areas are better suited for digital because of the quick publishing time. But magazines offer a different reading experience, one that is finite and tangible. National Geographic’s vice president of social media, Rajiv Mody, discussed why brands should improve their social strategy, using the brand’s impressive use of Snapchat Discover as an example. Mody said that Discover should be as customized and engaging as possible for the audience. But such customization should not be relegated only to social media. It is also increasingly important in advertising. Digital may have initially been seen as a way to increase ad revenue and access, but brands have seen ad blockers, viewability problems, and other roadblocks appear. So customization is more important than ever, and clients reflect this. There is an increasing trend of clients partnering with brands to create custom content. But, as Shenan Reed, president, digital of MEC Global said, “We don’t spend enough time talking about the terrible creative that could be massively improved to help performance.”last_img read more

first_imgTata Motors shareholders, late on Thursday evening, voted to remove industrialist Nusli Wadia as independent director of the Tata Motors board. About 71.20 percent of the Tata Motors shareholders voted in favour of Wadia’s exit as director, ANI tweeted.The ouster from Tata Motors board comes a day after 90 percent of shareholders of Tata Steel voted to remove Wadia as independent director.Tata Sons had called for the Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) to vote out independent director Nusli Wadia from the board of Tata Group companies on the grounds that he (Wadia) was acting in concert with ousted Tata Sons chairman Cyrus Mistry.

Incidentally, Nusli Wadia had been accused of “acting in concert” with the ousted chairman. On December 16, Wadia filed a defamation lawsuit against Tata Sons and is seeking a compensation of Rs 3,000 crore in damages.Following the news, the Tata Motors stock was trading at Rs 466.35, at around 9:23 a.m. on Friday, down 0.70 percent from its previous close on the Bombay Stock Exchange. #FLASH 71.20% of the Tata Motors shareholders vote in favour of removal of Nusli Wadia as director.— ANI (@ANI_news) December 23, 2016last_img read more

Fedora 31 will now come with Mono 5 to offer opensource NET

first_imgFedora has always been shipping Mono 4.8, the open source development platform for building cross-platform applications, with each Fedora release. Even after shipping Mono 5.0 in May 2017, the company still continued with Mono 4.8. But it seems the idea will be changing now with the release of Fedora 31. With Fedora 31, the team at Fedora is finally planning to switch to Mono 5.20 which is expected to release later this year. An effort was made in the past few months by the Fedora team to build Mono from source. The build was also done for Debian using msc instead of csc and the reference assemblies were rebuilt from source. In case of Mono, it requires itself to build. The Mono version 4.8 which is included in Fedora currently, is too old to build version 5.20. Currently, the team has been using monolite and a little version of mono compiler, .NET 4.7.1 reference assemblies for first build time. The sources for the required patch files are maintained on Github. The transition from Mono 4 to Mono 5 was on halt because of the changes required in their compiler stack and its dependency upon some binary references. These binaries are available as a source but treated as pre-compiled binaries for simplification and speed. The Fedora developers are now working towards getting Mono 5 into Fedora 31. This will also let the cross-platform applications that are relying upon Microsoft’s .NET framework 4.7 and later to now work. Mono 4.8 is also not compatible for PowerPC 64-bit but it is expected that Mono 5 will be. To know more about this news, check out the change proposal.
