Rabat – The six-member Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) voiced its support for Morocco’s claim over Western Sahara during a joint summit in Riyadh, during which King Mohammed VI spoke of a “proxy war” being fought with Morocco through the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.“What we are witnessing, in fact, is a proxy war, in which the Secretary-General of the United Nations (UNSG) is being used to infringe on Morocco’s legitimate, historical rights in its Sahara, through biased statements and unacceptable behavior regarding the Moroccan Sahara,” the king said.The statements referred to by the monarch constitute the use of the term “occupation” by the UNSG to describe Morocco’s presence in the Western Sahara after the international leader’s visit to the Tindouf refugee camps in Algeria housing displaces Sahrawis last month. “We stress our support to all political and security causes that are important for your brotherly country, mainly the Western Sahara,” King Salman of Saudi Arabia said during the opening speech of the summit of regional leadersIn addition to Saudi Arabia, the GCC includes Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates – all of which are forms of monarchies.King Salman also stressed the GCC’s “categorical rejection of any harm to the interests of Morocco” over the disputed territory for which the Algieria-backed Polisario Front demands a referendum on independence.Earlier at the summit, Morocco’s monarch had urged Gulf monarchies to support his country to defend it from “plots against its territorial integrity,” adding that the UN Security Council’s yearly discussions on the Western Sahara taking place this month were being used “to blackmail Morocco”.“This time, the situation is serious,” he said. “It is also unprecedented in the history of this artificial dispute over the Moroccan Sahara.”The monarch and Moroccans alike rejected an explanation from Ki-moon’s office saying that his his use of the controversial term in March was not deliberate and that he regretted causing the “misunderstandings.”As a political reaction to the Ki-moon’s speech in Algiers, Morocco expelled the peacekeeping mission MINURSO from its offices in Laayoune and Dakhla and cancelled it’s USD 3 million grant to the operation. The U.N. established MINURSO in 1991 after brokering a peace deal between Morocco and the Polisario Front – two sides that had been fighting for 16 years.Morocco maintains a close alliance with Saudi Arabia and the GCC in trade and military endeavors.In 2011, the GCC had proposed that Morocco and Jordan, both fellow monarchies, join the regional organization, but though the initiative failed, the bloc set up a USD 5 billion fund for projects in the two countries.Morocco has supported the Saudi-led Arab coalition fighting Iran-backed Shiite rebels in Yemen since efforts began. In March 2015 an F16 warplane belonging to the North African country was downed.

After coming into power, the present Government obtained 400 million USD under a currency swap arrangement with India in March 2015. They obtained another 650 million USD through a sovereign bond issue in May 2015. Another 1,100 million USD was obtained from India in July under a currency swap agreement. A further 1,500 million USD was obtained through a sovereign bond issue in October. Between March 2015 and March 2016, the Government issued short and medium term Sri Lanka development bonds on 12 different occasions borrowing over 2,711 million USD. Thus in the 15 months they have been in power, the present Government has obtained 6,361 million USD in foreign loans. Rajapaksa says this is enough to meet the entire foreign loan components of the Mattala airport (190 million USD) the Hambantota Port (426 million USD) Norochcholai Coal Power plant (1,340 million USD), The Colombo-Matara Highway (630 million USD), The Colombo-Katunayake Highway (248 million USD) all put together, and there would still be enough money to build not one, but two Port Cities (1,400 million USD each) one 500 megawatt Sampur Coal power plant (500 million USD) and yet another Mattala airport with the final leftovers.“This Government enjoyed foreign exchange savings of around USD 2,500 million in 2015 due to the precipitous drop in oil prices after they came into power. But they could not build up foreign exchange reserves or even make the Petrolem Corporation and the Electricity Board profitable. All these colossal borrowings including the massive savings from petroleum imports have been spent on consumption. It is because of the almost comic fiscal irresponsibility shown by the Government that Sri Lanka’s credit rating was downgraded by Fitch and Standard and Poor’s recently,” he added. Furthermore he says such borrowings were spread out over many years and that his Government never borrowed for consumption like the present Government which is why he says there were no fiscal fiascos like sweeping revisions of budget proposals and constant revision of tax rates when his Government was in power. Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has defended the decision taken when he was in power to borrow money.Rajapaksa says his Government borrowed money to build infrastructure projects, but these were long term concessional loans at 2% or less in interest. Rajapaksa says the Prime Minister’s allegation that there are undisclosed loans and liabilities of the former Government which are only now coming to light is a complete falsehood.He says the present Government will have to be held accountable for the hardships the people will have to face.

ATB Financial has reported a two-thirds drop in net income for the fiscal year ended in March, mainly due to provisions for possible loan losses because of the deteriorating Alberta economy.ATB reported net income of $108 million, down from a record profit of $329 million last year.The Alberta government-owned lender said the main reason for the drop was an increase in provisions on its balance sheet for loan losses to $388 million from $73 million the previous year.That number is in the same ballpark as the $460 million reported by the Royal Bank (TSX:RY) and $324 million reported by CIBC (TSX:CM) earlier this week, although both federally regulated banks are much larger than ATB.CIBC said most of its provisions were for loans related to the struggling Canadian oil and gas sector centred in Alberta.ATB president and CEO Dave Mowat said Albertans are hurting because of low oil and gas prices and the partial shutdown of the oilsands due to wildfires in the Fort McMurray region in the northeastern part of the province.The Edmonton-based lender noted its operating revenue grew 5.8 per cent to $1.5 billion last year, loans grew by 7.1 per cent and deposits grew by almost one per cent.Actual loan losses for the past fiscal year were $76 million. by Posted May 27, 2016 10:50 pm MDT Image by T.

Nintendo has never sold its hardware at a loss and it was predicted that the Wii U would also make a profit from day one. Unfortunately, that is the not the case for Nintendo and the company is being forced to follow the same route as Sony with the PS3. The Wii U will be sold at a loss.The news was announced by Nintendo’s president, Satoru Iwata, to the company’s investors along with further bad news that Nintendo didn’t reach it’s profit expectations this year. Naturally, Nintendo had to make the choice between pricing the console based on its manufacturing cost or a price that consumers would find reasonable. Wisely, they chose the latter which will hopefully profit Nintendo more in the long run.Last year, Nintendo had it’s first yearly loss due to a dramatic price cut for the 3DS in the summer because it wasn’t selling well, but that price cut paid off as the 3DS then went on to be very successful.Nintendo’s profits at the end of this financial year will inevitably go down even further, but it also means they will likely sell more consoles because of the lower price. There’s still concerns it isn’t low enough though, based on what it is competing against.What is the cause of the high cost of Wii U production? It’s most likely the GamePad, which has already proved difficult to make and certainly costs more than your typical console controller. However, just like all hardware, prices will come down as components get shrunk and combined, and manufacturing orders increase is size.Despite the bad news, Nintendo expects to sell a huge amount of units by March. 5.5 million to be exact along with 24 million games, and looking at Wii’s figures from a few years ago, it’s not a ridiculous estimation to make.via Eurogamer
June 29, 2019 Posted: June 29, 2019 Updated: 6:48 AM SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A 2-year-old boy died and three other children became ill from E. Coli after visiting the San Diego County Fair, health officials say. The four cases were confirmed in children ranging from two to 13 years old, according to the County Health and Human Services Agency.Fair officials have closed public access to all animal areas, including the petting zoo, at the livestock barn on the eastern side of the Del Mar Fairgrounds as a precautionary measure while the source of the E. Coli is investigated.In the first case, a 13-year-old girl visited the fair on June 8 and became ill on June 10. The girl is recovering and was not hospitalized.In the second, an 11-year-old girl visited the fair on June 8 and 12, when she fell ill. The girl is recovering and was not hospitalized.The third case involved a 9-year-old boy who visited the fair on June 13. He became ill June 16. The boy is recovering and was not hospitalized.In the fourth case, a 2-year-old boy visited the fair on June 15. He bame ill June 19. The boy suffered from hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) and was hospitalized. He died on June 24.The toddler was identified by family members as Jedediah Cabezuela. He died from Shiga-toxin-producing E. Coli. Health officials said Saturday there were no other clusters of Shiga-toxin in the county.E. Coli can cause HUS, a condition that destroys red blood cells and causes kidney failure, which can lead to death. The illnesses are being investigated by the County Department of Environmental Health and the Health and Human Services Epidemiology Program.County inspectors said the illnesses had no link to the food facilities the children accessed at the fair. All four children visited the animal areas or had contact with animals at the fair, county health officials said, which led fair officials to close access to animal areas. Fair and health officials have not, however, definitely linked the cause of the E. Coli bacteria to animals at the fair.The Junior Livestock Auction on Saturday continued as planned, officials said.Fair officials said Saturday at a news conference that the fair is “safe and secure.”Officials recommend fair attendees to use hand-washing stations around the fairgrounds, especially before eating. People who do not wash their hands after petting an animal or have food or drinks in an area with animals increase their chance of contracting the illness, according to CDC officials.All animals were scheduled to leave the fair’s barn area Sunday night and officials said animal pens are sanitized before and after the fair and cleaned daily. Fair organizers said they expect the animal exhibit to return with more safeguards and policies next season, 10News reported.The family of Cabezuela gathered Saturday for a fundraiser at Rosie O’Grady’s restaurant in Normal Heights. By Saturday night, a GoFundMe account for funeral expenses reached more than $16,000.Symptoms of E.Coli include severe abdominal cramping, watery or bloody diarrhea and vomiting. Symptoms may also occur with or without a fever. County health officials said anyone who experienced the symptoms on or after June 8 should contact their healthcare provider.

Slick ice and a dusting of new snow made commuting on the Glenn Highway treacherous Monday morning. Alaska State Troopers responded to 31 vehicle incidents on the Glenn in their Matanuska Valley jurisdiction today according to spokesperson Megan Peters.Download AudioA driver reported a near standstill where Abbott Road meets Hillside. Photo: Bob Wyatt/Alaska Public Media.Anita Shell with the Anchorage Police Department said since midnight, Anchorage police responded to 87 collisions and more than 90 vehicles in distress, throughout APD’s jurisdiction. Only ten involved non life threatening injuries. APD patrols the Glenn Highway from the Knik River bridge to the city.Wasilla to Anchorage commuter Ron Zastrow said his normal 50-minute drive time was stretched to three hours.Everybody that I saw on the Southbound lanes was driving very slow. I didn’t see as many vehicles in the ditch as I thought I was going to see.”Another thing Zastrow didn’t see… sand trucks heading South.“There was no sand on the highway that I saw.”The Glenn is a Priority One traffic artery, according to Jill Reese, media liason with the state Department of Transportation and Public Facilities.“Level one is of course the major highways, safety corridors, major urban and community routes. These can take up to 24 hours to clear after a winter storm. We try to get all the major traffic through, commuters and those sorts of things through first, then we go on to the lesser prioroties.”Photo: Bob Wyatt/Alaska Public Media.She says DOT’s sand trucks went to work at 5 a.m., although the trucks go where they are most needed, and are not tied to any particular route.“It’s normal, Alaska winter ice. People sometimes forget how to drive on this ice when we first get hit. Every year it is the same.”Reese says the weather conditions are worsened, because warm tires melt the ice underneath them, and then it freezes again, so there is continuous cycle of ice and thaw. And even if the road is sanded, that doesn’t solve all the traffic woes.“It’s not DOT’s practice, even in year’s past, to sand the entire length of a highway. We sand the approaches, the curves, intersections, those sorts of things. We rely on motorists to drive for the conditions of the road. And we will put sand on those areas as we can.”Reese says DOT’s budget has been cut by 25 percent, along with other state agency budgets, due to the current state fiscal shortfall. And that reduction has been felt in materials the department uses, such as sand.
BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir. File PhotoBNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Monday said their party’s MPs-elect have taken oath at party acting chairman’s Tarique Rahman’s instruction.Two hours after their party’s four MPs-elect were sworn in, Fakhrul came up with the remarks at a press conference at BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office.”Amid a serious crisis in national politics and a complicated situation, our party has taken the decision to join parliament as part of our movement for our leader Khaleda Zia’s release and her proper treatment and restoration of democracy,” he said.Earlier, two BNP MPs also claimed that they have taken oath at the last moment at the behest of party acting chairman Tarique Rahman.Talking to reporters after taking oath, Harun-ur-Rashid Harun and lawyer Abdus Sattar also said they came to parliament after consultation with Tarique.Abdus Sattar, also a former state minister, said they talked to Tarique through videoconferencing, and he permitted them to take oath.Harun, also a party joint general secretary, said, “We’ve come to parliament and taken oath at Tarique Rahman’s order.”He said the current parliament is not representing people and the government is not elected with people’s votes. “There’s no election on 30 December. That’s why BNP rejected the election. But we joined parliament to talk about the misrule of the government.”Harun said the government has destroyed democracy through rigging votes while it amended the constitution to hang onto power unfairly. “It’s now the responsibility of the government to form an administration with people’s representatives.”Mentioning that their chairperson has been kept in jail through a ruling ‘party-dictated’ lower court verdict, he hoped that the government will take immediate steps for freeing Khaleda Zia on bail and ensuring her proper treatment.Asked why their party secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir did not take oath when Tarique asked them to do so, Harun declined to make any comment on it saying, “He (Fakhrul) can say about it better.”.Replying to another question, he said their party expelled Zahidur Rahman Zahid as he was sworn in before getting the party’s green signal. “He apologised to Tarique Rahman today, and the party will now change its decision on him.”Asked whether parliament has got legitimacy with their oath-taking, the BNP joint secretary general said, “We’ve come to parliament to depict the country’s anarchic situation as there’s no rule of law and good governance.”Earlier, BNP’s four MPs-elect — Advocate Abdus Sattar (Brahmanbaria-2), Harun-ur Rashid Harun (Chapainawabganj-3), Aminul Islam (Chapainawabganj-2) and Mosharraf Hossain (Bogura-4) — took oath as members of the 11th Parliament, following the footstep of Zahidur Rahman Zahid (Thakurgaon-3).Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury administered the swearing-in around 5:40pm at the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban while parliament senior secretary Zafar Ahmed Khan conducted the oath-taking ceremony.With the latest ones, 299 MPs-elect out of 300 in the 11th parliamentary polls were sworn in.Only BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir did not take oath while the stipulated time for being sworn expired today.BNP along with Gonoforum and some other parties joined the election in alliance under the banner of Jatiya Oikyafront. BNP bagged six seats while Gonoforum two in the election.The alliance turned down the election results bringing the allegation of ‘massive vote robbery’ and decided not to join parliament.However, Gonoforum’s two MPs-elect Sultan Mohammad Mansur (Moulvibazar-2) and Mokabbir Khan (Sylhet-2) were sworn in on 7 and 2 April respectively.Read more:Fakhrul says people now hostage to a party whim

Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility LONDON (AP) — The British people will get another chance to decide on their European future by the end of 2017 — marking one more milestone in a long-troubled relationship.The planned referendum on Britain’s membership in the 28-country European Union following a renegotiation of some of the terms of the country’s membership is a key element of the new Conservative government’s program.Prime Minister David Cameron was Friday on the second day of a whistle-stop tour of European capitals, trying to convince leaders to offer concessions, including limits to welfare benefits EU migrants can claim. Though membership was secured, the divides within Labour didn’t go away, with many leading Cabinet ministers viewing the EEC as incompatible with the aims of socialism. That fissure, among others, would weaken Labour and pave the way for the election in 1979 of Margaret Thatcher’s Conservatives.____Thatcher’s Party Splits over EuropeThatcher was a keen backer of the ‘yes’ campaign, even venturing to wear a sweater with the flags of the member countries sewed in. However, her 11 years in Downing Street were marked by growing opposition to Europe.Though her government backed the creation of the single European market in the mid-1980s, she became increasingly hostile to the move to further integrate European countries.The appointment of French socialist Jacques Delors to head the executive European Commission, added fuel to her fire. Thatcher and a growing part of the Conservative Party were aghast at Delors’ ambition for a single currency.In a 1988 speech, Thatcher rejected the prospect of a “European super-state exercising a new dominance from Brussels.” Not everyone in her party was that hostile, and Thatcher’s growing antipathy to Europe prompted the 1990 resignation of her foreign secretary and led to a leadership battle. Thatcher’s time was up. And with the U.K. Independence Party making headway with its demand for a fresh vote on Britain’s membership, and its assertion that Britain had ceded too much sovereignty to Brussels, Cameron felt compelled to promise a referendum to bind his party together.The Conservatives’ recent surprise victory has put that referendum in motion. That vote will take place by the end of 2017.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. How do cataracts affect your vision? ___De Gaulle Says Non — TwiceThough Britain was absent at the EEC’s formation, it soon changed its mind. Its ambitions, though, were twice rejected by a former ally — the French president, General Charles de Gaulle.“Non,” he said in 1963, and again in 1967.De Gaulle, who spent much of World War II in London when France was under occupation, warned his five EEC partners — Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Italy and West Germany — that Britain had a “deep-seated hostility” to European integration that could bring about the end of what was then commonly referred to as the “common market.” He also worried that in crunch times, Britain would always side with the United States over its continental neighbors.___1975 Referendum: The People say YesEdward Heath, who became Conservative prime minister in 1970, made membership of the EEC a key objective. De Gaulle’s successor, Georges Pompidou, was far more amenable to British membership and by 1973 Britain finally joined. However, with the opposition Labour Party increasingly conflicted over Europe, accession would not be smooth.Labour’s leader, Harold Wilson, thought a referendum following a renegotiation would overcome the cracks in his party. That referendum in June 1975, Britain’s first-ever national plebiscite, was held after Labour’s return to power. A majority of 67 percent said “yes” to the question: Do you think that the United Kingdom should remain part of the European Community? Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Europe’s been a source of contention for decades in Britain. The British may love Alpine skiing, the horrors of Scandi-noir drama and the late-night hotspots on the Spanish island of Ibiza, but they have often been ambivalent over being part of a political and economic union with Europe.Many reasons have been cited for the complex relationship.Maybe it’s to do with Britain’s “special relationship” with the United States. Maybe it’s just to do with the fact that the British are an island people, wary of the entanglements and shifting alliances that have played out on the European continent since the Norman conquest of 1066, through the Spanish Armada, the Napoleonic Wars and two world wars.Ironically, it was former British leader Winston Churchill who called for “a kind of United States of Europe” in the grim aftermath of World War II.But when the fledgling European Coal and Steel Community launched in 1951, Britain was nowhere to be seen. It also opted against joining the six founding nations of what was then the European Economic Community in 1957.Britain has seemed a land apart, even after it joined in 1973.Here are some memorable events in Britain’s relationship with Europe. Top Stories Sponsored Stories FILE – In this March 10, 1961 file photo, France’s President, Charles De Gaulle speaks at the French General Assembly, in Paris.

His government would soon after descend into conflict over Europe.___Blair on a BikeWhen Tony Blair won in a landslide in 1997, he made Labour a decidedly pro-European party. Britain, he said, would be at the “heart of Europe.” He even indicated a willingness to join the euro, which launched in 1999. The image of the young premier on a bike in Amsterdam a few weeks after his election triumph with other European leaders symbolized the new approach.Blair built bridges initially, but his decision to back the U.S.-led war in Iraq in 2003 put him at odds with French President Jacques Chirac and German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder. Plans to join the euro stalled and Blair’s European enthusiasm hit a roadblock.____Referendum ReduxWith Blair’s departure in 2007, pro-Europeans lost a key voice. His successor, Gordon Brown, was more lukewarm while the opposition Conservatives morphed into a primarily Euroskeptic party. In 2011, Prime Minister David Cameron vetoed an EU treaty designed to help stabilize the euro, which was struggling following a debt crisis. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies

The new offensive coordinator has “texted a bunch” with his former tutor since it was announced he would take over play-calling duties last Friday, Arians said.And yes, Arians believes Leftwich can make the game easier for Rosen while finding ways to leech out more production from Johnson, who has been held to 3.2 yards per carry and quiet in the passing game with just 20 catches through seven games.“One thing I’ll bet: it’s a very teachable gameplan and the guys will know exactly what’s expected of them,” Arians said.And of Johnson?“I don’t know the word to use … he can do damn near anything he wants to do,” the former coach said. “You can dream up more ways and there will be 10 more ways to use him.”QUOTABLEArians on whether coaches should change their schemes to fit the players or find the players to fit their scheme: “Well, you can’t do things your players can’t do. So that to me is poor coaching. You do what’s best for the room. You don’t put square pegs in round holes. So adapt and eventually get where you want to go, but adapt to win now ’cause it’s a win-now business now.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact

THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP, Invision – Chris Pizzello TORONTO – Canadian pop star Avril Lavigne is opening up about her battle with Lyme disease as she prepares to release new music for the first time in five years.In a statement on her website, the Napanee, Ont.-raised singer-songwriter says she’ll put out the song “Head Above Water” on Sept. 19.It’s the first single off her upcoming album, which she calls “a very strong, triumphant, powerful and true record” that reflects her experiences over the last few years.Lavigne says her battle with Lyme has been the worst period of her life as it took a physical and emotional toll.She says she was able to turn that fight into music that she’s really proud of and that marks “a victorious moment.”The 33-year-old says she wrote “Head Above Water” from her bed “during one of the scariest moments” of her life.“I had accepted death and could feel my body shutting down,” Lavigne said in the statement.“I felt like I was drowning. Like I was going under water and I just needed to come up for air. Like I was in a river being pulled in a current. Unable to breathe.”Prayer and her mother helped her, she added.Lavigne’s last studio album, her fifth, was 2013’s “Here’s to Never Growing Up.”Lavigne said she wrote all of the songs for the new album in her bed and on the couch, and recorded there mostly as well.She worked with musicians Travis Clark and Stephan Moccio on the first single.“Truly… by keeping my spirits up, having goals to reach and a purpose to live for, my music helped to heal me and keep me alive,” she said.Lavigne thanked her fans for “waiting so patiently” as she continues to fight Lyme.She said she wants to be back onstage but has to listen to her body and keep a healthy balance.While it’s been tough opening up about her struggle, she knows she has to do it, she said: “Because not only is it a part of my life, I need to bring awareness to the severity of Lyme Disease.”The singer pointed to her Avril Lavigne Foundation, which she said provides Lyme prevention resources and online links to connect with doctors who specialize in the disease. She also said it will soon announce an alliance with top scientific teams that will accelerate Lyme research.“Please, join us in the fight while I tell the world my story and bring awareness to Lyme Disease,” said Lavigne.“I’m taking my life back into my own hands and doing what it is I know I am meant to be doing in this lifetime. Making music. And sharing my healing and hope, through my music.” Avril Lavigne announces new music, details battle with Lyme disease by The Canadian Press Posted Sep 7, 2018 8:38 am PDT Last Updated Sep 7, 2018 at 12:00 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
Authorities in the north have arrested and detained a woman suspected of belonging to ‘Feto’, short for ‘Fetullah terrorist organisation’.According to Turkish Cypriot media, the woman, Emel Adsiz, was arrested over the weekend.She later appeared in a court, which ordered she be remanded in custody for three days.She denies the accusations against her.Adsiz is the spouse of Osman Adsiz, one of two men arrested in the north last week on suspicion of ties to US-based cleric Fetullah Gulen.Reports said she surrendered herself to the police in the north after a warrant was issued for her arrest.Authorities decided to arrest her after searching through her husband’s computer and mobile phone, where they tracked conversations between Osman Adsiz and a woman he referred to as ‘abla,’ or ‘elder sister’ in Turkish.Reports said the Adsiz couple communicated using ByLock, an encrypted smart-phone application said to be used by Gulenists.Last year, following the coup of 15-16 July, Turkish authorities claimed they identified thousands of undercover Gulenist operatives after cracking the messaging app.Turkey blames followers of Gulen for the attempted coup. Gulen denies any connection to the plot.In January this year, nine colonels serving in the north were arrested after an investigation linked them to the alleged terror organisation.
