Rabat – Morocco did not make the cut for the upcoming 2018 Oscar for Best Foreign Film. After raising eyebrows over the legality of its participation in the Oscars,  Nabil Ayouch’s Razzia ended up being eliminated from the race for honours.The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced on Thursday, the shortlist for best foreign-language film, cutting down the 92 foreign submissions to just nine.The continent is now competing with Senegalese film Félicité by Alain Gomis and South African The Wound by John Trengove, while the Arab world’s chances of victory  are in the hands of Lebanese Ziad Doueiri’s film L’insulte. Worldwide, the films retained in the competition are from Chile, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Lebanon, Russia, Senegal and South Africa.A Fruitless Debate On September 16, the Moroccan Cinematographic Center (CCM) announced that  it nominated an “independent committee” which selected Ayouch’s kaleidoscopic social drama “Razzia” to compete in the foreign-language category of the 2018 Academy Awards. The CCM specified that this selection was made “in accordance with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (OSCARS).”“Razzia” is set in Ouarzazate, the Atlas Mountains and Casablanca. It is composed of five separate stories, one of which dates back to the 1980s in the Atlas Mountains.  The remaining four storylines take place in present day Casablanca.Ayouch revealed that the film primarily focuses on social issues such as the difference between upper and lower classes and freedom of speech, an issue that concerns all Moroccans, regardless of their social status. In addition, the film deals with the intolerance between social groups and “the increasing tendency that lead them to contempt each other.”Far from lauding the movie’s selection for such prestigious award after CCM’s announcement,  many media outlets screamed scandal, throwing accusations of foul play and conflict of interests.Arabic speaking news website Ihata accused Ayouch of having circumvented the Award Academy’s rules and regulation.At the time of the polemic, the  committee insisted  that “Razzia” has already made an official commercial release in Morocco. A member of the CCM committee contacted by MWN who chose to stay unnamed affirmed that Razzia made its official release at the Colisée movie theater in Marrakech, which the director Ayouch himself confirmed.However the manager of the movie theater, said that “Razzia” had been released on August 26 and was screened only until August 29. He would not disclose the number of tickets sold.The news of this presumed projection are nowhere to be found, including on “Razzia’s” active official Facebook page, which lists all of the aforementioned international screenings of the film. read more

Rabat – Facebook is taking preventive measures to preempt ill-intentioned exploitation of its users’ personal data.The latest move in the technology giant’s response to global outcry over political manipulation came on Thursday of this week, as Facebook announced that it is shutting Israel-linked social media accounts and groups attempting to influence elections and public discourse in many countries, especially in Africa and Asia.“Today we removed 265 Facebook and Instagram accounts, Facebook pages, groups, and events involved in coordinated inauthentic behavior,” Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebook’s Head of Cybersecurity Policy, announced in a statement on Thursday. Unlike similar announcements in the past months, when the technology giant rang alarm bells about groups spreading conspiratorial and deceptive content without providing specific details about the responsible entities, the latest statement revealed that the primary culprit behind the series of “inauthentic behavior” is Archimedes Group, a public relations firm based in Tel-Aviv, Israel.Influencing public opinion“Although the individuals behind this network attempted to conceal their identities, our investigation found that some of this activity was linked to an Israeli commercial entity, Archimedes Group.“It has repeatedly violated our misrepresentation and other policies, including by engaging in coordinated inauthentic behavior. This organization and all its subsidiaries are now banned from Facebook, and it has been issued a cease and desist letter,” the statement noted.With a robust online presence, including dozens of accounts, hundreds of groups, and millions of followers, the Israeli group principally engaged in the dissemination of content to “artificially increase engagement.” The artificial accounts’ activities mainly targeted Nigeria, Senegal, Togo, Angola, Niger and Tunisia,” but they also boasted some visible “activity in Latin America and Southeast Asia,” according to Facebook.Part of the fake accounts’ modus operandi is targeting countries by presenting themselves as locals, especially with local news outlets, to publish “allegedly leaked information about politicians.”The group also publicized and hosted political events, and was involved in circulating online advertisements and slogans. The slogans mostly consisted of smear campaigns or supportive messages about front-bencher politicians in target countries.Archimedes Group has not yet responded to Facebook’s announcement.On its website, however, the Israeli firm presents itself as an agenda-setting/influencing firm comprised of “experts from a wide spectrum of fields,” including “consulting, lobbying, public diplomacy, international public relations, information, and social media.”As far as the Israeli firm is concerned, its teams of experts have taken “significant roles in many political and public campaigns, among them presidential elections and other social media projects all over the world.”Facebook’s warning comes as the group redoubles efforts to clamp down on security to protect users’ privacy and freedom.Faced with global outrage in the age of fake news and scandals such as Cambridge Analytica, the tech giant is promising to upgrade its security policy to protect users’ freedom and privacy. Recent developments also suggest that sustained efforts to monitor “inauthentic behavior” are part of a charm campaign to improve the tech giant’s tarnished reputation.“We’re constantly working to detect and stop this type of activity because we don’t want our services to be used to manipulate people,” read Facebook’s statement.Despite the company’s repeated warnings and promises to punish any “inauthentic behavior” which jeopardizes the privacy of users around the world, the trend has shown no signs of abating.In recent months, Facebook issued similar warnings against a string of “inauthentic behaviors” and other digitized opinion-influencing platforms originating from Iran.Between January and February of this year, Facebook announced that it had uncovered and taken down hundreds of fake Facebook groups and Instagram accounts which specialized in disseminating Iran-friendly narratives in the US, South Asia, and much of the Arab world, including Morocco. read more

Of these children, one in 22 is severely malnourished and at a nine-fold increased risk of death compared to well-nourished children, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reported.In south and central Somalia, which has been plagued by factional fighting and has not had a functioning central government since 1991, the rates are higher with one in five children acutely malnourished, of which one in 20 is acutely malnourished. These national rates of acute malnutrition continue to be amongst the highest in the world.Currently, the rates translate into an estimated 240,000 children under five years of age being acutely malnourished, of which 63,000 are severely malnourished. More than two thirds of these children are located in south and central Somalia, the area’s most affected by the current conflict. Long-term integrated responses combining nutritional rehabilitation with promotion of optimal infant and young child feeding practices and increasing access to safe water and health services are the only way to address the crisis, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said.Internally displaced persons (IDPs) continue to be the largest single group in crisis, representing 44 per cent of the 3.2 million, and with the ongoing conflict this is likely to even increase further. In the north, a drought following four seasons of below-average rainfall has left 290,000 pastoral and agro-pastoral people in need of both life-saving and livelihood support to recover, but some good indications are reported for agricultural areas in the south, where a bumper harvest will increase food availability and accessibility to many households, including poor urban families, and has reduced the number of rural people in crisis by 15 per cent from six months ago. 5 February 2010A widespread humanitarian crisis persists in war-torn Somalia, with an estimated 3.2 million people, or 42 per cent of the population, in need of emergency aid or livelihood support, and one in six children acutely malnourished and requiring specialist care, according to a United Nations update released today. read more

23 March 2010Women farmers are often the chief executives of their rural areas and supporting their economic development is crucial for economic growth and poverty reduction, a senior United Nations official said today ahead of an international conference on women’s empowerment. “Women farmers grow, buy, sell, cook food and feed their children. They perform the majority of the agricultural work and, on a global scale, women cultivate more than half of all the food that is grown,” said Yukiko Omura, Vice-President of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).“Despite their contribution to global food security, women farmers are frequently underestimated and overlooked in development strategies,” Ms. Omura added.The statement comes two days ahead of the “Women’s Empowerment and Employment” Conference in Copenhagen, which will be attended by UN Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro.The conference has been organized by the Danish Government to find ways to accelerate and enhance employment for women to achieve the third Millennium Development Goal (MDG), which is related to women’s empowerment and international development.The eight MDGs were adopted by world leaders in 2000 as a blueprint for development by 2015. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will host a conference on the MDGs this September in New York where he wants world leaders to commit to accelerated programmes to reach the Goals.In a message to an IFAD conference last month, the Secretary-General noted that with more than 1 billion people hungry, smallholders and rural producers have a vital role to play in overcoming global hunger and poverty, and new and varied partnerships are needed, with particular emphasis on the interests of women.IFAD has said it prioritizes women’s economic empowerment by providing support in enterprise development, income-generation activities and access to microfinance, education and training. “Women have strong motivation for learning and are open to engage in new activities, such as marketing and exporting products, which can create a better livelihood for themselves and for their families,” Ms. Omura said.“These traits need to be developed and supported in order to help them feed their families and communities,” she added. read more

“The late President left an important mark on his country,” Mr. Ban told the Assembly. “During his relatively short period in office, he pursued his responsibilities with dignity and with respect for the rights of all. He will be remembered for his unwavering contribution to democratic governance, economic revitalization and in particular his determined efforts to bring peace to the Niger Delta region.“As Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States, he fought tirelessly against unconstitutional changes of government and for the restoration of peace and stability throughout the sub-region.”Mr. Ban praised Mr. Yar’Adua’s commitment to UN principles and objectives. “One concrete demonstration of that support is Nigeria’s current standing as the fourth largest troop contributor to United Nations peacekeeping operations,” he added.The leaders of various UN regional groups also took the podium to laud the late president. 13 May 2010The United Nations paid tribute today to Nigerian President Alhaji Umaru Yar’Adua, who died last week, with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon eulogizing “his unwavering contribution to democratic governance” and the 192-member General Assembly standing in a minute’s silence. read more

16 December 2010The peace process that ended two decades of war between northern and southern Sudan, culminating in next month’s referendum on independence for the country’s south, risks unravelling unless both sides reach agreement on the disputed oil-rich Abyei region, the United Nations peacekeeping chief warned today. “We are confronting the most critical period of the peace process,” the Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, Alain Le Roy, said in a briefing to the Security Council. “The days and weeks to come will determine the future of Sudan for the next decades.”However, while hailing the successful conclusion of voter registration in southern Sudan ahead of the 9 January vote, Mr. Le Roy voiced deep concern over the lack of accord on the terms of a simultaneous referendum on the final status of Abyei, a region which straddles northern and southern Sudan.“The current impasse on the referendum in Abyei is deeply worrying… An agreement has still not been found and tensions on the ground are rising,” he said, noting that political and historical sensitivities are making it even more difficult for one side to consider options that its constituents could view as concessions. Mr. Le Roy said that the parties cannot afford to not resolve the question of Abyei as tensions and frustrations on the ground will only grow, which will make the matter even more delicate to resolve, especially as the migration of the Misseriya into the area has already begun. The Misseriya are nomadic cattle-herders, linked to northern Sudan, and they have clashed with the Dinka, an ethnic group located in Abyei, in the past. “In such a climate, any security incident can derail the CPA process,” he added, referring to the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement that ended the civil war. “The parties must show responsible leadership and recognize that difficult compromises are necessary to ensure peaceful coexistence between the communities.”Mr. Le Roy stressed it was important for the sides to reach agreement on these CPA issues before the referendum. He noted that one of the most serious questions is that of citizenship since possible changes in legal, employment and property status will be a major concern for southern Sudanese living in the north and northern Sudanese living in the south.But he cited the registration success in southern Sudan, despite the tight electoral calendar, as “an example of what the North and South can achieve when they work together. It is vital that the parties continue their efforts and preserve an environment favourable to holding a referendum that is free and without violence.” In his remarks to the Council, the head of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Panel on the Referenda in Sudan, the former Tanzanian President, Benjamin Mkapa, said the registration process was generally transparent with very few cases of rejection reported, and that both sides had given unequivocal public assurances about respecting the outcome.The UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS), which has nearly 11,000 uniformed peacekeepers in southern Sudan, has been working on options for a possible increase to prevent any deterioration in security after the referendum, and to lift its capacity to monitor possible cease-fire violations and protect civilians throughout the mission area. Mr. Le Roy said that in the meantime, UNMIS is increasing its presence in hot spots with its existing force, redeploying troops to areas such as Abyei, Southern Kordofan, and a new site near the border between Upper Nile and White Nile states.“While UNMIS continues these efforts, we must emphasize that the presence of UN troops alone will not be enough to prevent a return to war, should wide-spread hostilities erupt,” the peacekeeping chief said. “Only a demonstrated commitment by the parties to refrain from inflammatory statements, uphold the CPA ceasefire mechanisms, and engage in dialogue to settle differences will succeed in maintaining peace.”Mr. Le Roy added that in the unlikely event that the referendum leads to large-scale violence, approximately 2.8 million people could be internally displaced and another 3.2 million people may be negatively affected by breakdowns in trade and social service delivery. “In this scenario, up to $63 million may be required to provide emergency assistance to those in need,” he added. Mr. Le Roy also noted that restrictions on UNMIS’ freedom of movement remain a major challenge in areas such as Southern Khordofan and Northern Abyei and he urged the Sudanese authorities to prevent such incidents and hold those responsible to account. UNMIS is also experiencing long delays in the receipt of nearly 350 Sudanese visas for its personnel, including those most needed in the upcoming referendum. The Council, in a presidential statement echoing “deep concern” but also hailing southern Sudan’s successful voter registration, strongly urged the parties “to calm rising tensions in Abyei, to urgently reach agreement on Abyei and other outstanding CPA issues and to resolve critical post-referenda issues including border, security, citizenship, debts, assets, currency and natural resources.”The Council also called on the parties “to find peaceful solutions to all outstanding matters, to never resort to war again, and that neither party should take any action or support any group that would undermine the security of the other.” read more

Slain journalist Lasantha Wickremetunga had told his family that the MiG deal exposé could harm his life.The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) told court today that Wickremetunga’s family had told the CID that Wickremetunga feared his life could be under threat over the MiG deal story.

first_img AS THE BEAST from the East hits the country hard, one school in Cork is not letting the freezing, snowy weather get in the way of students sitting their exams.Hewitt College informed students and their parents this morning that due to the “hazardous footpaths and roads, and disruption to water services”, the school would close.Students at the private school, however, will still sit exams today at home.Principal Trish McGrath told TheJournal.ie: “All of our 4th, 5th and 6th year students do pre-examinations. The conditions are so bad, we made a decision last night to close today.”She said that the exams have been sent by email, with parents given instruction on how to ensure “supervision and examination-style conditions” for their children to do the tests.A decision will then be taken over the coming days on whether to send further exams home if the conditions persist.And, as for whether students may take the opportunity doing the exam at home to take a peek at their textbooks, McGrath was doubtful.She added: “I don’t think so. We’ve given full instructions to parents regarding exam conditions.It’s not important what mark they get here, but it’s important they have a trial run for the real thing. I don’t think there will be any cheating.Read: PHOTOS: Many parts of Ireland are covered in snowRead: ‘Now is the time’: People asked to clear snow from outside their home before snow worsens File photo.

first_imgDurcissement du malus automobile en 2012L’Assemblée nationale a adopté hier le projet de loi concernant le durcissement des bonus et malus automobiles. Cette loi prendra effet en 2012 et s’inscrit dans le cadre du projet de loi de finances.Le gouvernement avait prévu de baisser les taux de bonus écologique pour mieux maîtriser les déficits engendrés par le dispositif de 2008. En effet, il atteignait 500 millions d’euros en 2009 et probablement autant en 2010.À lire aussiJournée mondiale de l’environnement : Quelques astuces pour un mode de vie plus écolo au bureauLa nouvelle mesure qui prendra effet en 2012 concernant les bonus et malus automobiles se traduira, concrètement, par un abaissement du seuil de tolérance. “Les bonus de 500 et 1.000 euros seront ramenés à 400 et 800 euros en 2011 et les exigences environnementales du bonus seront accrues : le bonus de 100 euros sera ainsi supprimé”. Par ailleurs, les malus sont eux, revus à la hausse, “ainsi, en 2012, la tranche de malus de 2.600 euros touchera les modèles émettant plus de 231 grammes de CO2 par kilomètre au lieu de 241 grammes de CO2 par kilomètre”, indique le gouvernement.De plus, cette loi voit l’apparition de tranches intermédiaires taxées de 500 et de 1.100 euros pour les modèles émettant entre 151 et 190 grammes de dioxyde de carbone par kilomètre. Autre mesure qui prendra elle aussi effet en 2012, “un abaissement de 10 grammes de CO2 par kilomètre du seuil d’application du malus de 200 euros. Ainsi, en 2012, la tranche de malus de 200 euros touchera les modèles émettant entre 141 et 150 grammes de CO2 par kilomètre”.Le 10 décembre 2010 à 16:27 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Don Shooter shows health improvement Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Comments   Share   Quick workouts for men Top holiday drink recipes SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea on Tuesday confirmed the country’s first two deaths from Middle East Respiratory Syndrome as it fights to contain the spread of a virus that has killed hundreds of people in the Middle East.South Korea has reported 24 cases of the disease since diagnosing the country’s first MERS illness last month in a man who had traveled to Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries. Most of South Korea’s cases have had connections to the first patient — either medical staff who treated him or patients who stayed near him at the hospital before he was diagnosed and isolated, and their family members.center_img Tests on a 58-year-old woman who died of acute respiratory failure Monday showed she had been infected with the disease before her death, the Health Ministry said in a statement. A 71-year-old man who tested positive for the virus last week also died, it said.The statement said both stayed at the same hospital with the first patient.Health officials said Tuesday that about 750 people in South Korea were isolated at their homes or in state-run facilities after having contact with patients infected with the virus. They said the number could rise and that depending on their conditions many of the isolated could be banned from leaving the country.More than 50 schools and kindergartens near a hospital near Seoul where the 58-year-old patient who died was treated have canceled classes from Wednesday to Friday to let children stay home, according to the education agency in Gyeonggi province, which surrounds Seoul. The measure was taken after many parents asked the schools to take action, agency officials said.There is a growing sense of public alarm over the virus, with South Korean media criticizing the government for failing to swiftly cope with MERS in the initial stage of its landing in the country. Major shopping malls have reported a sharp increase in sales of masks, hand sanitizers and mouthwashes, and many people have been seen wearing masks on Seoul streets over the past few days. Sponsored Stories Last week, the son of one of the patients ignored doctor’s orders to cancel a trip to China, where he was later diagnosed as that country’s first MERS case. China isolated the South Korean man at a hospital, and Hong Kong authorities said Sunday that 18 travelers were being quarantined because they sat near him, but they were not showing symptoms.MERS was discovered in 2012 and has mostly been centered in Saudi Arabia. It belongs to the family of coronaviruses that includes the common cold and SARS, and can cause fever, breathing problems, pneumonia and kidney failure. The virus has spread primarily through contact with camels, but it can also spread from human fluids and droplets.There have been about 1,170 cases of the virus worldwide and about 480 of the patients have died, according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control.Copyright © The Associated Press.

first_img BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Woody Allen says he should be the face of the #MeToo movement in terms of what to do right.In an interview that was broadcast Sunday night, Allen said he’s a “big advocate” of #MeToo, and once again denied allegations that he molested Dylan Farrow, his adopted daughter.“It’s funny, I should be the poster boy for the #Metoo movement because I’ve worked in movies for 50 years, I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses…and not a single one, big ones, famous ones, have ever, ever, suggested any kind of impropriety at all,” he told Argentine journalist Jorge Lanata in New York.“I’m in principle, and in spirit, completely in favour of their bringing to justice genuine harassers,” Allen said during the interview with Argentina’s Channel 13.“Now, if innocent ones get swept up in there, that’s very sad for the person, it’s unjust, but otherwise, I think it’s a very good thing to expose harassment.”Farrow, Allen’s daughter, in 2014 renewed the claim that Allen molested her in an attic in 1992 when she was 7-years-old. Allen, who has long denied the allegations, was investigated for the incident but not charged. Farrow has previously questioned why the #MeToo movement hasn’t ensnarled Allen.Earlier this year, Mira Sorvino published a public apology to Farrow, saying she was sorry for “turning a blind eye” to Farrow’s accusations against Allen. She also vowed never to work with him again. Sorvino starred in Allen’s “Mighty Aphrodite.”Other actors have also distanced themselves from Allen, raising questions about the future of the prolific filmmaker in an industry sensitive to allegations of sexual misconduct in the midst of a #MeToo reckoning.“What bothers me is that I get linked in with them,” Allen said. “People who have been accused by 20 women, 50 women, 100 women of abuse, and abuse, and abuse, and I, who was only accused by one woman, in a child custody case, which was looked at, and proven to be untrue, I get lumped in with these people.” FILE – In this Nov. 14, 2017 file photo, director Woody Allen attends a special screening of “Wonder Wheel” in New York.
