King Mohammed VI Attends Synagogue Inauguration Shows Commitment to Moroccan Jewish

Casablanca — King Mohammed VI attended the inauguration of the Ettedgui Synagogue and the adjacent El Mellah Museum in Casablanca on Friday, following their rehabilitation, according to a statement issued by the Maghreb Arab Presse (MAP).Serge Berugo, Secretary-General of the Council of Moroccan Jewish Communities, tells the MAP that the restoration of the synagogue and the museum, “where are exhibited paintings retracing the history of Judaism in Morocco, will also preserve the authentic Moroccan identity.”The synagogue and museum’s restoration display the King’s commitment to conserving spaces of cultural dialogue and coexistence, Berugo added.  These restorations were carried out as part of the second phase of the rehabilitation program of Casablanca’s old medina, which also restored the Sidi Allal Al Karaouani Mausoleum, the Dar Annassij (weaving house) and the July 9 Health Center. The program, so far, has invested 3.1 million dirhams in the rehabilitation of these important and historic cultural spaces.“All these projects,” adds the statement, “are part of the Grand Royal Plan for Casablanca Metropolis Development.”The Jewish community in Morocco has always been an important one, as they’ve been present in the country for over 2,000 years, and Morocco has always been a model of peaceful coexistence between Muslims and Jews, and King Mohamed VI’s commitment to restoring these historic and cultural spaces is a symbol of that. read more

Final arguments underway over Northern Gateway pipeline in Terrace BC

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by News Staff Posted Jun 17, 2013 3:59 pm MDT Opponents and proponents of the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline are making their final arguments over the next couple of weeks in Terrace B.C. to the National Energy Board.Northern Gateway President John Carruthers is confident the project will go ahead because he believes it’s in the country’s best economic interests.“I think we can demonstrate based on the litigations we’ve proposed, the commitments we’ve made that it can be built and operated safely, so I think clearly the question is yes, the project should proceed,” he said.Lawyer Richard Neufeld, representing the Northern Gateway project, spent a couple of hours before the panel, insisting there’s enough evidence out there.“It’s almost as if some of these organizations would have you believe that if only Northern Gateway had supplied a bit more environmental information, they could have supported this pipeline. We know that’s not the case,” he said.Neufeld questions whether anything would satisfy some of the proposal’s opponents.“No amount of additional environmental information is going to persuade Forest Ethics, the Natural Resource Defence Council, or any other member of the so-called tar sands campaign, to support a pipeline such as this,” he said.Several hundred protestors attended Monday’s hearing, vehemently opposed to the project and supporting the side of the likes of the Alberta Federation of Labour.AFL President Gil McGowan said by Enbridge’s own admission, the project would only create 228 permanent jobs in Canada and Enbridge isn’t convincing enough.“Time after time, projections have been proven false, their numbers don’t add up and when they say that this pipeline is an important piece of Canadian infrastructure, what’s become clear from the testimony and the evidence is that this is not Canadian infrastructure, this is Chinese infrastructure,” he said.McGowan added instead of building the pipeline, we should be refining the bitumen destined for China here at home and the demonstrators echoed his position.“All people involved in those demonstrations agree with us that we should reject this pipeline and focus on moving up the value ladder rather than giving our jobs away to places like China,” he said.

Some PS Vita launch titles require a memory card for saves

first_imgWith the release of the PS Vita in Japan on December 17, Sony moves away from disc-based games to the smaller and more battery-friendly game cards. Just like DS and 3DS games, it’s possible to include memory for saves on these cards meaning no investment required in a separate memory card.However, it turns out saving game data to a PS Vita game card is not a pre-requisite. A developer can choose to require a separate memory card for save games instead. This is exactly what some developers have decided to do for titles that will be available at launch.In total, we know of seven launch games that will require a memory card if you want to save your progress. They are:@fieldDisgaea 3 ReturnDream Club ZeroHot Shots Golf 6Monster RaiderRidge RacerUnchartedWhat hasn’t been explained is why a developer would choose external rather than internal memory saves. One explanation may be it’s just easier to handle. As every Vita game also comes in digital form, the external save option is the only way to save games if you download the game. Maybe some developers just decided to default to external saves for both digital and physical versions?This is sure to frustrate some gamers who will be paying up to $77 per game at launch. Now they have to save up a bit more cash for another card just to save their games.Western gamers will have to deal with the same when the Vita launches next February. Games like Uncharted and Ridge Racer likely won’t switch to an internal save system before heading to the U.S. and Europe.To avoid frustration Sony will have to make it very clear on the game case whether a memory card is required or not. Such information is usually specified on the back of the box, but I suspect we may see a front cover note to stop gamers leaving a store only to find they need to go back to buy a memory card.Read more at Andriasanglast_img read more

Nintendo bundles Mario Kart 7 with a 3DS XL for 200

first_imgIn the run up to Black Friday and Thanksgiving weekend, Nintendo decided to entice gamers into purchasing a 3DS (not XL) with a new bundle. The 3DS on its own sells for around $179.99 without a game, but Nintendo reduced that to $169.99 and threw in a copy of Super Mario 3D Land. The only caveat being you don’t get the cartridge for the game as it was preloaded on the 3DS.Now Thanksgiving is over, and if you managed to find and purchase that 3DS bundle you may now be kicking yourself. Nintendo has decided to do the same thing with the 3DS XL for an extra $30.You can find a 3DS XL $299.99 at Amazon without a bundle game for anywhere between $199-$220 at the moment. But Nintendo is now offering the XL with a copy of Mario Kart 7 for $199.99, effectively giving you the game for free. The game is preloaded just like the 3DS offer, and the XL you’ll get is the Blue/Black variety.What doesn’t make sense is why Nintendo decided to offer the 3DS bundle last week and then not mention the 3DS XL version until now. From using both I’d definitely choose the XL, in fact there’s 6 reasons why the 3DS XL is better.As we’re so close to Christmas parents are on the hunt for bargains, so I expect both of these 3DS packs will be quite hard to find in stock. The larger online retailers are your best bet I’d imagine. And if this is the excuse you need to upgrade from a 3DS to an XL, transferring your data across is a simple process.Nintendo via G4TVlast_img read more

Star Trek Discovery delayed until May 2017

first_imgSad news, Star Trek fans. CBS All Access’ new series, Star Trek: Discovery, has been delayed by four months.While the show was originally slated for a January 2017 premiere date on the new streaming service, you’ll now have to wait until May 2017, thanks to a decision by the creative team to push the date back.Executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller confirmed the decision in a joint statement:“We aim to dream big and deliver, and that means making sure the demands of physical and post-production for a show that takes place entirely in space, and the need to meet an air date, don’t result in compromised quality. Before heading into production, we evaluated these realities with our partners at CBS and they agreed: Star Trek deserves the very best, and these extra few months will help us achieve a vision we can all be proud of.” While it sucks that we have to wait longer for a new Star Trek series with a female lead and a brand new story, to have it pushed back due to the creators wanting to get the series just right is excusable. Star Trek has an enormous fanbase and there is a lot riding on this series.“Bringing Star Trek back to television carries a responsibility and mission: to connect fans and newcomers alike to the series that has fed our imaginations since childhood,” the statement continued.We can expect quite a bit to keep fans happy with the new series, including a new ship. It’s also expected to have a full-series arc in its first 13 episodes, instead of plot-of-the-week episodes typical of the franchise.We Khaaannnntttt wait.last_img read more

The shocking family member who is still a staunch supporter of Meghan

first_imgMeghan Markle birthdayTwitterMeghan Markle may be finding it hard to find allies in the Royal Family apart from Prince Harry. And it is no secret how the Markle family feels about Meghan and her new Royal status. But despite all of that, there is apparently one family member who Meghan can still control.Meghan Markle could “get away with murder” when it comes to one particular family member who she could “twist round her little finger”, according to a royal biography.Reportedly, the Duchess of Sussex was doted on by her father Thomas Markle Snr while growing up, being much younger than his two other children – Samantha and Thomas Jnr. In fact, Samantha was already 17 years old when Meghan was born. According to the 2018 book ‘Meghan: A Hollywood Princess’, Meghan was the “apple of her father’s eye” and could do no wrong. There have been reports of Thomas Markle playing favourites with Meghan before.Royal biographer Andrew Morton asserted that her half-sister Samantha “often” claimed Meghan teased her that she was the favourite child and would receive the most expensive gift at Christmas from their father. Meghan Markle has had a falling out with the Markle family after joining the Royal Family. Mr. Morton wrote: “Meghan went to stay with her mother and did not even visit her father’s house to pick up her mail.”  Meghan MarkleThe Duke and Duchess of Sussex Official Instagram (sussexroyal)Mr. Morton went on to write that it was a situation that perplexed her friends, as they knew that Meghan was the apple of her father’s eye and could get away with blue murder.However, claims by Samantha Markle need to be taken with a pinch of salt as she isn’t exactly a fan of the Duchess of Sussex. In fact, she has used Meghan Markle’s fame as a Royal to promote herself, cashing in by writing books on Meghan and making a media spectacle of herself.last_img read more

It’s always better if your hair is a day old and not washed the same day. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveMake sure your hair has enough texture to work with; take large sections and spray every section with a heat protected product that will make your curls last more longer and define them. Use the medium tongs on every section and curl it away from the face giving it a looser texture to work with.Once you’re done with the style, open it using some smoothing cream to loosen the curls and add more shine and softness.Tie a ponytail at your occipital bone and fix the hair around the ponytail to create more texture and definition to the style. Take smaller pieces of the sections and dress them around the ponytail for better grip and a much fuller look making sure all the hair in the ponytail is incorporated. Once the back is complete, take smaller sections from the front and dress it away from the face. You can twist and open the twist slightly teasing it with your fingers and then fix it on the ponytail making sure the whole look comes together.The front section has to be raised while blow drying to make sure that extra volume is created on the roots. Once that’s done, hold the hair in the same position and spray it to create a wave and fix it in the same position.Fix the front section towards the side or towards the ponytail depending on how long or short the hair is.At the end spritz a shine or setting spray to lock in the moisture and the look.last_img read more

While there is available treatment using gemcitabine, sold as Gemzar, it has a response rate of only 5 percent. That is why researchers are looking to alternative treatments, such as angiogenesis, microRNA and the tumor microenvironment, to treat pancreatic caner. As part of the AACR-NCI-EORTC International Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics, Craig Thompson, M.D., director of the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania moderated a press conference on emerging treatments in pancreatic cancer on Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2009, at Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Mass. Researchers presented new data on nanotechnology methods of delivering therapies, angiogenesis, microRNA and the tumor microenvironment. Some of the highlights of this new research involved targeting intracellular VEGF using nanotechnology for sub-cellular delivery of bevacizumab improves efficacy of combination therapy against pancreatic cancerNew nanotechnology-based delivery of a common anti-angiogenesis agent improved efficacy in models of pancreatic cancer, suggesting a possible therapy for this hard to treat disease.Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital used bevacizumab, commercially known as Avastin, which is an anti-angiogenesis drug designed to starve cancerous tumors of the blood they need to grow. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the agent for several cancers (including breast and colorectal cancers) and oncologists use it to treat other cancers as well.Avastin works by removing vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which is a protein that stimulates new blood vessel growth in tumors. However, as administered currently, it has had limited efficacy because it can only remove some of the VEGF on the outside of the tumor cell. VEGF can still thrive inside the cell where it is made and continues to be secreted outside, long after the injected Avastin has disappeared and thus contributes to tumor growth.For more information: www.aacr.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Sponsored Content | Videos | Contrast Media | January 22, 2019 itnTV “Conversations”: Guerbet Unveils Portfolio of Advanced Digital Solutions ITN Contributing Editor Greg Freiherr speaks with Guerb read more News | Ultrasound Imaging | March 07, 2019 Ultrasound Societies Urge FDA to Remove Black Box Warning on Contrast Agents National and international ultrasound societies are urging the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to remove the “black… read more News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 07, 2019 Contrast Use in First Transthoracic Echocardiogram for Heart Failure Reduces Repeat Testing Heart failure is the fourth most common cause for all admission to U.S. hospitals, and it is the most common reason for… read more Conversations with Greg Freiherr: Guerbet Unveils Portfolio of Advanced Digital SolutionsVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 5:46Loaded: 2.87%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -5:46 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

first_imgBritish ferry and shipping freight operator P&O will shift the registration of its UK vessels to Cyprus ahead of Britain’s departure from the European Union, in part to keep its tax arrangements in the bloc, the company confirmed on Tuesday.P&O currently has six UK-registered ships operating on the English Channel route to France, although it announced last month it was moving two of those to the Cyprus registry and one has already been transferred.All commercial ships have to be registered, or flagged, with a country partly to comply with safety and environmental regulations.The move could complicate any attempts by the UK government to secure extra space on ships to help cope with potential disruption to trade if it fails to secure a negotiated departure from the EU.“In advance of Britain leaving the European Union on March 29, 2019, we undertook a review of the flag status of our ships on the English Channel,” a P&O spokesman said in a statement.“For operational and accounting reasons, we have concluded that the best course of action is to re-flag all ships to be under the Cyprus flag.”The spokesman said Cyprus was among the world’s leading flag registries, “resulting in fewer inspections and delays”.He added the move “will result in significantly more favourable tonnage tax arrangements as the ships will be flagged in an EU member state”.“We have no plans to make any other changes, including the terms and conditions of any of our seafarers, as a result of the new arrangements.”Such a taxation system like the EU’s allows shipping companies to pay corporation tax based on the tonnage of their vessels rather than on profit.Industry sources told Reuters in December that the UK government had made approaches to companies including P&O, to secure back-up vessels in case Britain failed to secure a negotiated withdrawal from the EU.Since then, Britain has awarded contracts worth more than 100 million pounds ($129 million) in total to three shipping firms to provide extra ferries, comprising French firm Brittany Ferries, Denmark’s DFDS and a new British company Seaborne Freight.When asked on Tuesday if P&O could provide space on ships if needed by the government, the company declined to comment.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityMake earthquake insurance a family priorityCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Will Take Your Breath Away.
