Moroccan Singer Saad Lamjarred Loses Appeal for Bail to Stay in

Rabat – Jean Marc Fedida, Lamjarred’s lawyer, had requested the singer be released on bail.The Moroccan singer is facing two pending cases of rape from two women in France. The most recent allegation came in August when French police put Lamjarred under formal investigation for the alleged rape of a woman in a hotel in Saint-Tropez in southeast France.Following the Saint-Tropez incident, Lamjarred paid €150,000 bail and left jail on probation. On September 18, Lamjarred went back to jail following the Aix-en-Provence Court of Appeal’s decision after the prosecutor’s office in Draguignan appealed Lamjarred’s release. The 33-year-old singer has faced three previous rape accusations. In 2010, he was accused of rape in New York. US prosecutors later dropped the case when the complainant withdrew. French police arrested Lamjarred in October 2016, and a Paris court charged him for “aggravated rape” in case brought by Laura Prioul. The case is still pending trial. Lamjarred spent six months in detention in Paris until April 2017.A French-Moroccan woman also accused Lamjarred in November 2016 of assaulting her in the spring of 2015, according to Huffpost Maghreb She later withdrew the complaint, “following pressure from her family.”Saad Lamjarred is one of the most popular artists in Morocco and the Arab world. His hit song “Lmaallem” (the boss), as of February 2018, was the most-viewed song by an Arab artist on YouTube. The music video has been seen more than 684 million times. read more


UN sustainable development meeting in search for balanced solutions on energy

Energy policies that can fuel economic and social development while reducing air pollution and the greenhouse gas emissions responsible for climate change will be considered by more than 2,000 participants at the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development’s (CSD) annual session, which starts on Monday in New York.Almost 80 government ministers are expected to attend the Commission, which will attempt to chart a sustainable course of action on the interlinked issues of energy, climate change, air pollution and industrial development.The chair of this year’s session, Abdullah Hamad Al-Attiyah, Qatar’s Energy Minister, stressed ahead of the opening that all delegates should remember that many people still do not have access to modern energy services.About one in four people around the world do not have electricity, and an estimated 2.4 billion use traditional fuels such as firewood or dung for cooking or heating.“As long as women and children have to forage for firewood, for as long as students cannot read after sunset, and as long as new businesses and industries cannot get the power they need to operate, we cannot expect to achieve development that is economically, socially and environmentally balanced,” he said.Noting the gravity of the challenges ahead, Mr. Al-Attiyah said the task for this year’s CSD session is to decide specific policy options and practical measures that can work.“I am optimistic about the future,” he said. “The coming decades will witness significant investments in energy infrastructure, as well as in industrial development. We must seize the opportunity to make a difference by making the right policy decisions and choices.”This year’s CSD will mark the 20th anniversary of the Brundtland Commission report, Our Common Future, that was seen as a landmark document on sustainable development. To mark the anniversary, Gro Harlem Brundtland – a former Norwegian prime minister and director-general of the UN World Health Organization (WHO) – is planning to address the high-level portion of the meeting on 9 May.Energy use is expected to grow by 50 per cent over the next 25 years, with two thirds of that increase in developing countries. But there are numerous competing national and global energy issues that are also under consideration, including access to affordable energy, as well as reliable and clean energy supplies.The CSD brings together government delegates and representatives of civil society, including women, children and youth, indigenous people, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), business, academia, local authorities, scientists, workers and trade unions. 27 April 2007Energy policies that can fuel economic and social development while reducing air pollution and the greenhouse gas emissions responsible for climate change will be considered by more than 2,000 participants at the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development’s (CSD) annual session, which starts on Monday in New York. read more


Using a wheelchair Vera Twomey nears the end of her trek to

first_img http://jrnl.ie/3273370 Source: Gino Kenny TD/Twitter 47,156 Views Seven-year-old Ava has Dravet Syndrome, an extremely rare, drug-resistant form of epilepsy which at its worst can cause up to 20 seizures in a day.Vera says that medicinal marijuana in liquid form has the potential to save her daughter’s life, as it reduces the frequency of seizures.Before Christmas – having been frustrated by continuous efforts to contact the Department of Health, and after her daughter had a particularly violent seizure – Vera set off on a Cork-Dublin protest walk to try and get the government’s attention.On that occasion she only had to trek as far as Mallow before she got a call from Health Minister Simon Harris. A meeting was arranged, and the Minister announced a review of Ireland’s policy on medicinal cannabis.The Health Products Regulatory Authority last month recommended that access to such products should be allowed for certain conditions. Another meeting with the Minister took place, but Vera said she had been told her application for stronger drugs had been turned down as she and Ava need sign-off from a consultant neurologist to apply.Ava has been on a CBD-based treatment since last October, and has shown a marked improvement, according to Vera. This product contains very little THC — the active substance in cannabis which results in a high.The Cork woman is now campaigning for access to stronger THC-based medication. She says paediatric neurologists who have been working with the family are reluctant to apply on her behalf – but says this underlines why the law needs to be changed.She called on the government to speed up progress on Kenny’s bill to legalise medicinal cannabis.Kenny. meanwhile, accused the government of stifling the bill.

Local radio stations and newspapers have been covering the journey as she makes her way across country on secondary roads. Vera meeting supporters last week. Source: Facebook/Gino KennyShe had straps placed on both legs at the end of last week as the journey took its toll on her body – and by yesterday was making her way along on crutches. By this morning, the only option left was a wheelchair.Health Minister Simon Harris released a statement this evening and said he is available to meet with Vera when she arrives into Dublin tomorrow. He said that the HSE advised him that her consultant will be in touch to arrange a further consultation for her daughter.He added: “I also shared with her a statement by Dr Tony Holohan, the Department’s Chief Medical Officer, on the advice he has provided to me which stresses that the granting of a licence must come with the endorsement of a consultant who is familiar with and responsible for the care of the individual on whose behalf the application is being made.”Harris added that it is not within his power “to provide medicinal cannabis tomorrow”. He said he remains fully committed to “establishing an access programme for cannabis-based treatments in Ireland”.Gino Kenny, who has been campaigning to increase access to medicinal cannabis, called on supporters to join Vera on the route tomorrow. They would be starting at Rathcoole at around 8.30am, the AAA-PBP TD said. After welcoming more wellwishers at Newland’s Cross at 10am, they plan to walk to the Dáil via Inchicore, arriving around lunchtime.The Dublin TD has been walking the entire route, and said support had been incredible. Asked if he expected progress as Vera arrived in Dublin tomorrow he said he wasn’t too hopeful, and accused the Government of playing “mind games” on the issue. DETERMINED MOTHER VERA Twomey will approach the outskirts of Dublin this evening as she continues her trek from Cork for her sick daughter Ava.She began the 260km walk from her home to the Dáil last Monday as a protest against decisions to restrict her seven-year-old daughter, who has a rare form of epilepsy, from accessing cannabis-based medication.TheJournal.ie joined Vera and her supporters, including TD Gino Kenny, on Facebook Live as they made their way through Newbridge in Co Kildare this afternoon.She’s been battling injury, illness and dreadful weather in the last few days – but told us the support from people in towns and villages along the way had been phenomenal.As we talked, there was another boost for Vera’s spirits – as a marching band from Patrician Primary School in Newbridge came out for form a guard of honour for her.“I’m just so grateful that people care around the country,” an overwhelmed Vera said as the pupils finished playing. Day 2 Kildorriey Co Cork pic.twitter.com/2aRh0prD3T— Gino Kenny TD (@Ginosocialist) March 1, 2017 By Daragh Brophy In Vera’s case the compassionate access licence has been turned down – and the primary reason why I’ve been walking with Vera is to get access for Ava for medicinal cannabis.“But it goes much beyond that,” he said. There are “many, many people” who could benefit from access to medicinal cannabis, the TD insisted. “The law needs to be changed.”Last month, Twomey released a harrowing video of Ava suffering a seizure to TV3. Speaking in a later radio interview, she said that despite the coverage Ava’s case had received in recent months, very little had been done to change the situation she was in.When Twomey and her husband, Paul, released the video to TV3, they said they had reached their “last straw” and felt like they badly needed something to be done. She said Harris had acknowledged he’d watched it in their most recent meeting, saying it was “difficult to watch”.The Department of Health issued a statement after Harris’s latest meeting with Vera where he reaffirmed what he said when the HPRA review was released, namely that a pilot access programme for cannabis-based treatments would be rolled out for patients with specific conditions, including severe epilepsy.The statement added that, “until such time as the necessary legislative amendments has been made to facilitate the implementation of the Cannabis Access Programme, it remains open to the Minister to consider granting a licence to an Irish registered doctor for access to medicinal cannabis for named patients”.Video by Nicky RyanWith reporting by Garreth MacNameeRelated: You can follow Vera’s journey on Facebook here >Read: Mother releases harrowing video of daughter suffering seizures in bid to access medicationRead: Health authority recommends medicinal cannabis to be made available for “specified conditions”last_img read more


Cancun le Brésil et la GrandeBretagne au secours du protocole de Kyoto

first_imgCancun : le Brésil et la Grande-Bretagne au secours du protocole de KyotoA Cancun, les participants aux discussions des Nations unies sur le climat demandent au Brésil et à la Grande-Bretagne de contribuer à sortir de l’impasse sur l’avenir du protocole de Kyoto. Les discussions de Cancun visent à créer un nouveau fonds afin d’aider les pays pauvres et à créer un mécanisme de partage des technologies propres. La Grande-Bretagne et le Brésil ont donc pour mission de réduire les importantes divisions qui opposent les pays riches aux pays pauvres. En effet, le Japon, suivi de la Russie et du Canada, a décidé de ne pas signer de prolongation au protocole de Kyoto qui oblige près de 40 pays développés à réduire d’ici 2012 leurs émissions de gaz à effet de serre. Ces pays ont réclamé un nouveau traité, plus large, qui engagerait aussi les pays émergents.À lire aussiQui est Greta Thunberg, proposée pour un prix Nobel à seulement 16 ans ?De leur côté, la Chine, l’Inde et d’autres pays en développement estiment que les pays riches, puisqu’ils ont émis la plupart des gaz à effet de serre (GES), doivent proroger Kyoto avant que les pays pauvres ne les suivent.Les binômes créés vont travailler sur différents points importants. Ainsi, la Suède et Grenade vont étudier les objectifs à long terme du ralentissement du changement climatique. L’Espagne et l’Algérie vont faire en sorte de régler les divergences qui existent concernant la manière d’aider les pays en développement. L’Australie et le Bangladesh travailleront sur le financement et la technologie pendant que la Nouvelle Zélande et l’Indonésie se pencheront sur d’autres questions relatives à la réduction des émissions de GES.Malgré l’impasse sur la question du protocole de Kyoto, le vice-ministre mexicain des Affaires étrangères, Juan Manuel Gomez, dit avoir relevé des progrès dans de nombreux domaines allant des forêts au financement de l’aide aux pays émergents.Le 6 décembre 2010 à 19:47 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Tiny House Living Festival attracts enthusiasts of living small

It looked like a small-scale housing development had cropped up at the Clark County Event Center at the Fairgrounds on Saturday, as the Tiny House Living Festival descended on the site for the weekend.Long lines trailed from 17 tiny houses on wheels, eight converted school buses, a handful of converted vans and one teeny teardrop trailer small enough to be hauled behind a Subaru. After all, only a handful of people at a time fit into each home. Through today, the homes will be on display and a series of workshops will help visitors learn how to build their own homes, downsize their lives and raise children in homes averaging about 240 square feet.“I think it’s a pretty good indication of the excitement about minimalism and small space in general,” organizer Coles Whalen said of the large crowd.The Portland area is somewhat of a mecca for tiny house enthusiasts. Though tiny houses on wheels are not legal dwellings in Clark County, Portland has thus far tolerated the small wooden cabins, craftsman-style homes and converted school buses that some are parking in backyards as housing costs continue to rise in the region.Peggy and Robb Moretti, Portland residents in their 50s, visited Saturday to scope out their options for building a tiny house as an accessory dwelling unit in their back yard. read more


Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech discusses Arsenal move

first_imgArsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has discussed the new planing style under new manager Unai Emery.The former Chelsea shot-stopper was in fine form against Manchester City on Sunday making some important saves despite struggling to help the team play out from the back.“They’re a team that’s full of confidence and last year’s champions, so obviously it will always be difficult, but I have to say that we came to the game with our objectives to grow up as a team, to learn our way, how we want to play and obviously we had the task of doing it against one of the best teams, so it was difficult. But at times we did really well, and we put them under some pressure as well. Unfortunately, we just couldn’t find that final pass to finish the opportunities off,” Cech said as regards to City, according to the club’s official website.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.Cech also spoke about his struggles to play the ball from his pots, saying:“They pressed really well and obviously when you make one pass slower than it should be the player doesn’t have the time to use the ball quickly. Obviously you can be under pressure but at times we managed to get out pretty well. We didn’t want them to feel comfortable and have the ball always at their feet so that they could control the game.”Arsenal next travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea next weekend.last_img read more

Microsoft open sources InferNET its popular modelbased machine learning framework

first_imgLast week, Microsoft open sourced Infer.NET, the cross-platform framework used for model-based machine learning. This popular machine learning engine used in Office, Xbox and Azure, will be available on GitHub under the permissive MIT license for free use in commercial applications. Features of  Infer.NET The team at Microsoft Research in Cambridge initially envisioned Infer.NET as a research tool and released it for academic use in 2008. The framework has served as a base to publish hundreds of papers across a variety of fields, including information retrieval and healthcare. The team then started using the framework as a machine learning engine within a wide range of Microsoft products. A model-based approach to machine learning Infer.NET allows users to incorporate domain knowledge into their model. The framework can be used to build bespoke machine learning algorithms directly from their model. To sum it up, this framework actually constructs a learning algorithm for users based on the model they have provided. Facilitates interpretability Infer.NET also facilitates interpretability. If users have designed the model themselves and the learning algorithm follows that model, they can understand why the system behaves in a particular way or makes certain predictions. Probabilistic Approach In Infer.NET, models are described using a probabilistic program. This is used to describe real-world processes in a language that machines understand. Infer.NET compiles the probabilistic program into high-performance code for implementing something cryptically called deterministic approximate Bayesian inference. This approach allows a notable amount of scalability. For instance, it can be used in a system that automatically extracts knowledge from billions of web pages, comprising petabytes of data. Additional Features The framework also supports the ability of the system to learn as new data arrives. The team is also working towards developing and growing it further. Infer.NET will become a part of ML.NET (the machine learning framework for .NET developers). They have already set up the repository under the .NET Foundation and moved the package and namespaces to Microsoft.ML.Probabilistic. Being cross platform, Infer.NET supports .NET Framework 4.6.1, .NET Core 2.0, and Mono 5.0. Windows users get to use Visual Studio 2017, while macOS and Linux folks have command-line options, which could be incorporated into the code wrangler of their choice. Download the framework to learn more about Infer.NET. You can also check the documentation for a detailed User Guide. To know more about this news, head over to Microsoft’s official blog.

Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impa

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact GLENDALE, Ariz. — It is not uncommon for a football player to spend an offseason rehabbing an injury.That injury being a gunshot wound, however, is.But that’s exactly what new Arizona Cardinals running back Chris Johnson had to work his way back from over the last few months. In March, Johnson — along with two others — was involved in a drive-by shooting in Orlando, Florida, that left the driver of the vehicle dead and the other passenger with gunshot wounds to his shoulder, hand and leg. Johnson was hit in the shoulder. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Comments   Share   “At the end of the day that was a situation that happened,” he said. “I’m just trying to put it behind me and just look forward.“I’m just ready to start playing football.” – / 28center_img Top Stories In terms of the gunshot itself, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said nothing showed up on the physical that would lead the team to be concerned. And as far as Johnson’s ability to move on from the incident, Arians said he’s confident the player will be fine.“I have no clue, I can’t say I’ve been in any shootings,” he said. “But that’s a product of where you come from sometimes; it’s a normal thing.“I’ve had a lot of guys — Dennis Northcutt walked up the street and saw his brother get shot and killed right in front of him. I’ve had a number of guys who have had that happen, and they were fine.”Thus far, Johnson appears to be fine. He may be that way in large part because he pushed himself. He arrived at Glazer’s gym wearing a sling, which forced him to concentrate on lower-body work until he was cleared.“I did a lot of lower-body work for the first two weeks, and once I got cleared I started doing upper-body, getting got my strength back and all that. So it turned out to be great in the end.”Johnson, who has played in all 16 games each of the last six seasons, added that the injury has not changed the way he runs. According to Johnson, the passenger who survived is doing “pretty good.” But how is the running back faring?After all, it’s the type of experience that could be difficult to get over.“Just prayed a lot,” he said. “I grew up in a church, so just prayed a lot. And working out.
