Rabat – Donald Trump’s adviser Jared Kushner reportedly arrived in Morocco on the evening of Thursday, August 1. During his visit to Morocco, as part of his Middle East tour, the US official also met with Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed (MBZ), the Jerusalem Post reported.A US administration official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that Kushner met with he MBZ and Oman’s Minister Responsible for Foreign Affairs Yusuf bin Alazi bin Abdulah, according to the Jerusalem Post.The news outlet added that Kushner’s meeting with the MBZ was expected to take place in the UAE, but it “ultimately took place in Morocco.” Morocco’s news agency Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) has not reported on the arrival of Kushner, MBZ, or Oman’s FM.Xinhua news outlet, however, reported on Thursday that Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan arrived in Morocco for a private visit on Wednesday, July 31.The unnamed official said that the meetings were “extremely productive.” The meetings aimed at following up on the US-sponsored economic meeting held in  Manama in June.The meeting discussed the economic aspects of the proposed Israel-Palestine peace plan. Daniel Estrin, a  correspondent at the  National Public Radio in Washington tweeted that Kushner will be visiting the Mideast with stops to Saudi Arabia, Jora, Israel, Egypt, and Morocco.Read Also: Moroccan FM: Deal of Century Was Not Discussed During Kushner Visit to RabatWhile the reason behind his second stop in Morocco has not yet been confirmed, international news outlets said that the visit seeks to gain support for the US economic project as part of the Middle East peace plan otherwise known as the Deal of the Century.The deal seeks to boost the economy in Palestine, according to the US narrative.Palestine, however, refuses any mediation from the US as it believes that the US is siding with Israel.The tension between the US and Palestine intensified after US President Donald Trump announced his country’s decision to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.On July 24, Trump’s administration blocked a proposal urging the UN to issue a condemnation after Israeli forces demolished Palestinian homes in Oued al-Homes, south of the occupied Jerusalem. read more

Bollywood star shines bright for UNICEFs South Asia child nutrition campaign

“I am delighted to become an Ambassador for UNICEF in South Asia. I hope my messages on the importance of children’s nutrition will urge parents, families, and leaders at all levels to support and adopt proven services and nutrition practices that will help children grow and develop to their full potential,” Mr. Khan told a news conference in the Nepalese capital of Kathmandu, where he took part in the launch of a national nutritional campaign.“Child stunting remains one of the greatest development challenges to South Asia. Stunted children have stunted bodies, stunted brains, and stunted lives. Compared with children who are not stunted, stunted children have poorer cognitive development, often enrol later in school, complete fewer grades, and learn less well – leading to reduced productivity and income-earning in adult life” he added.After sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia is the region with the highest number of deaths of children under the age of five. An estimated 2.3 million children under the age of five perished in 2011 alone. At the same time, 38 per cent of children under the age of five in South Asia suffer from stunted growth due to chronic under nutrition while an estimated 28 per cent of children are born with low birth weight, largely due to women’s poor nutrition during and before pregnancy.“With the immense respect that Aamir Khan commands across South Asia, we are convinced that Aamir will make a lasting difference in the fight against child stunting, potentially the biggest threat to children’s growth and development in this part of the world,” said Karin Hulshof, UNICEF Regional Director for South Asia.During his visit to Nepal, Mr. Khan also took part in the launch of the “1,000 Golden Days” national nutrition campaign. According to UNICEF, the most crucial time to meet a child’s nutritional needs is during the 1,000 days from conception to the child’s second birthday. Proven and effective interventions during this time can prevent malnutrition and drastically reduce the prevalence of stunting in young children. read more

The allrounder had only just returned to action after knee surgery, but a CWI press release on Friday said he experienced “some discomfort” while playing in the Global T20 Canada and then expressed his unavailability to the West Indies selectors. Middle-order batsman Jason Mohammed has been named as replacement.“He [Mohammed] is a player with lots of experience in all three formats and – having done well for Trinidad & Tobago as well as Guyana Amazon Warriors,” Floyd Reifer, West Indies interim head coach, said.“It is not easy to the fill the shoes of someone like Andre Russell, who has dominated T20 cricket all over the world and helped West Indies win the ICC T20 World Cup on two occasions. We believe Jason is capable of good performances and we back him to perform at this level and win games as well.”Russell was last seen in a West Indies shirt in the World Cup, but after playing four matches, his knees gave out and he had to be replaced. The 31-year old played his first – and only – match since recovering from that injury on July 25 but he didn’t bowl or bat in it.Mohammed, who last played for West Indies in the ODI series against Bangladesh in July last year, was Trinidad & Tobago’s highest run-scorer last season in the four-day domestic tournament. The 32-year old captained a weakened West Indies side that toured Pakistan for a T20I series last year, where he made just 28 runs in three games. He has played nine T20Is and averages 18.The first two T20Is against India are scheduled to be held at the Broward County Stadium in Florida on Saturday and Sunday.

Buyers Guide Which tablet should you get

first_imgEVER SINCE THE iPad came out in 2010, it created an entirely new industry that hadn’t existed before. Fast forward to today and there are a number of competitors in the field offering their own take.Much like the smartphone market, there are a number of decent tablets out there that would suit professionals, entertainment lovers and the casual user.Here are the best tablets on the market and the type of person they would be suited towards.For the tech loverNexus 7 Cost: €249 Screen size: 7 inchesGoogle has really pushed its Nexus range, which has improved over time, but it’s the Nexus 7 that is the jewel in its crown. The screen is the right size for holding, the display is sharp and suited for watching movies and videos, and the Android OS allows a great deal of flexibility with customisation.It’s perfect if you’re on the go, or just want something to pick up once you get home. It’s also cheaper than its closest counterpart, the iPad mini, so if you’re price conscious, it’s the one to side for.(Image: Android)For the frequent travelleriPad Mini Cost: €399 Screen size: 7.9 inchesWhat’s to say about the iPad mini that hasn’t been said over the last twelve months? Its size means it’s easy to carry around, its format is perfect for reading and the retina display means everything is pin-sharp.It’s more expensive than other competing tablets like the Nexus 7, but access to the App Store, which has higher quality apps across the board, could edge it for people. Either way, you can’t go wrong.(Image: Apple)For the TV & movie addictKindle Fire HDX 7 Cost: €229 Screen size: 7 inchesAmazon’s Kindle Fire HDX 7 builds upon the success of the original Kindle Fire and takes advantage of its vast multimedia collection. Boasting a high-res screen, this 8.9 inch tablet is one that’s designed for use at home with the company’s vast collection of books, movies and TV shows to choose from.While it has a great battery life, the tablet doesn’t have access to Google Play, which limits its use.(Image: Amazon)For the professionalSurface Pro 2 Cost: €899 Screen size: 10.6 inchesIf you’re more business orientated, then the Surface is worth taking a look at. Microsoft has given it a touchpad keyboard allowing users to treat it as both a work device and a multimedia device.Its hybrid nature of laptop and tablet can feel weird at times, but it combines both pretty well and while it won’t replace your laptop entirely, it will certainly be useful for smaller work tasks that pop up regularly. It is the most expensive tablet in this list, meaning that casual users might want to look elsewhere.(Image: Microsoft)For the entertainment loverSony Xperia Tablet Z Cost: €449 Screen size: 10.1 inchesIf you’re the kind of person who loves connecting up your devices, then Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z is the one for you. As well as being waterproof (handy if you accidentally spill a drink on it), the tablet’s performance is solid, it’s light and compact and has an impressive screen. As it’s a Sony product, you can practically turn it into a entertainment hub, provided you own other Sony devices.The only problems are the Android skin it uses isn’t as good as what you would find on the Nexus 7 and the problem of bloatware rears its head again. Despite those problems, it’s a good tablet and it gives Sony a decent foundation to build upon.(Video: Sony Xperia)For the casual useriPad Air Cost: €489 Screen size: 9.7 inchesSaying that the iPad Air is the best iPad yet may come across as the kind of breathless hype that normally surrounds Apple products, but it’s true. Like the 5S, Apple has refined what was already great about the iPad and turned it into a must have.A large screen which is perfect for multimedia, great hardware and a light build means it might be a while before another tablet knocks it off the top spot.(Image: Apple)Read: Buyers’ Guide: Which smartphone is right for you? >Read: What you should consider before buying a smartphone >last_img read more

Crysis 2 Story trailer brings the destructoporn we want more

first_imgCrysis 2 isn’t far off (the release date is March 22nd) and it has been a bit dinged up from last week’s full game leak but we’re still excited. Above is the “Story” trailer, in which the plot is set and you can get a taste of what to expect in the game. Basically something happened in 2020 on the Lingshan Islands (as you probably recall from Crysis), the weather got crazy, some sort of infection started spreading in Manhattan, and then New York was destroyed. In the game you run around NYC killing bad guys and blowing up whatever is left.Actually the games looks pretty sweet. They wouldn’t release a Crysis game without impressive graphics, and while the story looks like a mish-mash of The Day After Tomorrow and 28 Weeks Later (or any other zombie movie) I have to say I have a good feeling about this one. The game will definitely have some good action, the nano suit will be even cooler than before, and the setting will be great (if not a bit depressing for us New Yorkers). We’ll have to see how open-world they kept the game, as they was a primary strength of the original.AdChoices广告You can see the “Roag Rage” gameplay trailer here:via Crunchgearlast_img read more

Golf courses say … show me the greens

first_imgBRUSH PRAIRIE — Some of the bucolic qualities of The Cedars on Salmon Creek are on hiatus.Past an orange safety fence near the clubhouse, wheezing excavators scrape at what used to be fairway grass while a reversing backhoe chirps. Construction has been the norm for the Brush Prairie course since last summer.As members of a high school girls golf team practiced their short game just yards away, coach and course professional Joe Cain tries to put a little backspin on the situation.“It’s a good lesson in turning all of it into white noise,” he said, smiling.The distraction may be temporary, but it could lead to an eventual boon. Located at a dead end on the outskirts of Battle Ground, Cain said the public course relies on regular visitors for its revenue and not membership dues.Whether they golf or not, more people are on the way. Early last year The Cedars sold the land underneath its driving range and first two holes to a Portland real estate developer. Nearly 300 homes are expected to rise.“We’re a little off the beaten path, so this kind of opens the door,” Cain said, noting that The Cedars will redesign part of its course to field 18 holes. “It’s always been more of a destination. This is kind of a rebranding.”last_img read more

Watch 20 Minutes of Ads to Earn Free Movie Tickets

first_img Summer blockbusters and Oscar contenders don’t come cheap: The average price for a cinema ticket in 2018 was more than $9, according to the National Association of Theater Owners.But what if you could watch first-run movies, in theaters, absolutely free?That’s the idea behind PreShow, established by Stacy Spikes, co-founder of MoviePass and the Urbanworld Film Festival.Since it launched Thursday on Kickstarter, the project has collected more than $9,000 from 251 backers, putting it well on its way to reaching Spikes’ $10,000 goal.Inspired by the $11-billion-a-year product placement business, the movie-loving entrepreneur wants to bring advertising and audiences closer together.Enter PreShow, a platform that allows people to attend films for free by watching branded content ads.“The only people that will be able to participate are from the Kickstarter community,” Spikes said. “This is your invitation.”Get your invitation on Kickstarter (via PreShow)Choose from one of three Kickstarter tiers to join; each member also receives a limited number of codes to dispense among cinema-going mates:$15 for you and five friends$25 for you and 10 friends$60 for you and 30 friends(The obvious tactic is to charge pals per code, easily earning your money back.)After the campaign ends in April, PreShow will start rolling out computer-generated keys to backers—first to big spenders in July, then second-wave supporters in September, and finally cheapskates in November.Once connected, download the mobile app and log in to choose any 2D film playing at any theater.You’ll need to watch a 15- to 20-minute video of branded content before receiving a virtual credit, which can be used to purchase tickets in advance, “the same way you normally would,” according to the project page.Don’t expect to simply press play and walk away, though. A built-in facial recognition feature automatically pauses the video as soon as you look away from the screen or move out of view.But with great technology comes great responsibility: PreShow promises privacy is a “top concern.”“Nobody is recorded, no personally identifiable data is shared, all data is aggregated and anonymized to brand partners,” the site said. “If a member chooses to opt into a brand offering, they will be connected directly to the brand.”You have 36 days to join PreShow, or convince a friend to back the campaign.Spikes’ former firm MoviePass this week launched a new version of its “Uncapped” subscription service, now available for a limited-time price of $9.95 for 12 months, or $14.95 per month.For reference, the standard price of MoviePass Uncapped will be $19.95 per month.More on Geek.com:Lone Blockbuster Store Still Standing in Oregon‘Captain Marvel’ Brie Larson Surprises NJ FilmgoersMoviePass and More: Your Guide to Movie Theater Subscriptions Vintage Shelf: Spike Lee Brings the Heat in ‘Do The Right Thing…Top Movie and TV Trailers You Might Have Missed This Week Stay on targetlast_img read more

Cubans wear yellow ribbons for agents jailed in US

first_img Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean Students held a demonstration on the steps of the University of Havana, and Cuba’s association of artists and intellectuals marched from its headquarters to the U.S. Interests Section along the Malecon seafront boulevard.“They’ve suffered too much already,” said Jorge Luis Maresma, 50, who took part in the march.The U.S. and Cuba do not have diplomatic relations, so they maintain interests sections instead of embassies in each other’s capitals.The Cuban Five are near-constant fixtures in island state media. Havana calls them national heroes and repeatedly demands their repatriation.Cuba, meanwhile, has held U.S. government development subcontractor Alan Gross in prison for nearly four years, convicted of crimes against the state after he was caught bringing restricted communications equipment onto the island.Talk of a possible swap has so far come to naught.On Wednesday night, President Raul Castro and other top Cuban officials attended a concert in honor of the Cuban Five at Havana’s Karl Marx Theater.And a slick music video featuring an all-star Cuban musical cast singing “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree,” in the style of “We Are the World,” has been airing repeatedly on state television. The yellow ribbon has long been a symbol in the U.S. of people waiting loyally for those at risk or held captive. It was widely to show support for U.S. diplomats held captive in Iran in 1979.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Comments   Share   “The symbolism of the yellow ribbon has a strong impact in the mind of Americans. It is a message of love that appeals to emotions,” said Rene Gonzalez, the only one of the Cuban Five who has been released from prison.“We are trying to send a message that we are human too,” added Gonzalez, who has been heading the campaign.The Five were arrested Sept. 12, 1998, and convicted three years later of spying on U.S. military installations in South Florida, as well as exile groups and politicians. Havana maintains that they were only monitoring militant exiles to prevent terror attacks in Cuba, and posed no threat to U.S. sovereignty.Gonzalez was paroled in 2011 after serving most of his sentence. Earlier this year a U.S. judge allowed him to renounce his citizenship and return to Cuba. The other four remain in prison, with one set to walk free in February.Thousands of ribbons could be seen around the Cuban capital Thursday, from government buildings to private homes and small businesses. A huge strip of yellow hung from the iconic lighthouse at El Morro fortress at the mouth of Havana Bay. Many people wore yellow clothing, and young schoolgirls fixed yellow ribbons in their hair.

Don Shooter shows health improvementcenter_img HAVANA (AP) – Cubans tied yellow ribbons to homes, trees and lampposts across the capital Thursday, in an organized mass campaign to press for the return of several espionage agents imprisoned in the United States on the 15th anniversary of their arrest.By using a symbol with deeply held cultural significance for many Americans, the campaign aims to raise support for the so-called Cuban Five in the United States where the public is largely unaware of their case, even if it’s a daily cause celebre in Cuba.

Virgin fills in flight gaps as QF grounds planes

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J As ongoing strikes force Australia’s flag carrier to ground aircraft and cut flights, Virgin Australia chief executive John Borghetti confirmed the airline will add capacity over the coming months to fill in the gaps.Adding an extra 31,000 seats each week, Virgin’s head said the move was to meet demand left behind by Qantas’ industrial action as well as part of the carrier’s plan to expand its business travel presence in the Perth market.“We have added more than 6,800 seats to Perth (we have 31,000 seats to Perth every week, with the Business Class product available on board all flights from the East Coast),” Mr Borghetti said in a statement.  “We are very committed to this market and believe we have the capacity to support increased demand. “In addition to this, we have already put plans in place to add extra capacity over the next few weeks, including  3,000  additional  seats  each  week  up  to  30  October;  and  the  addition  of  a  fifth  daily  return service from Melbourne to Perth commencing 20 December adding a further 2,300 seats each week.”Mr Borghetti added that the carrier is keeping a close eye on the Queensland land market to meet capacity when needed as it rebuilds after flooding and cyclones earlier this year.Heading into the holiday season, the airlines head concluded that the carrier is working closely with its alliance partners, Etihad and Air New Zealand to add capacity over November, December and January.last_img read more

first_imgA ground-breaking ceremony took place on Saturday for one of the largest planetariums and digital projection domes in the Eastern Mediterranean, to be erected on the grounds of the Tamasos Bishopric in the Nicosia district.The project, funded by Russian businessman Viacheslav Zarenkov who also built the first Russian-style church on the island, is expected to be completed within less than two years.The T&O Cyprus Planetarium and Gallery Centre will be located in the courtyard of the Bishopric of Tamasos in Episkopio, near the church Zarenkov funded.The Bishop of Tamasos, Isaias, said that the planetarium will offer educational programmes for the study of the universe. The project, he said, has been a vision of his bishopric as it contributes to “decoding the wisdom of God”.“God, as creator of the universe installed his own codes for its creation and operation,” he said.He described the science of creation as the basis of “the theology of creation which proves the relation between science and faith”.“Science is the way in which God created the world and there is a harmony and agreement between faith and science. The planetarium will highlight this relationship of science and theology and present through its digital spaces, the grandeur of heaven and earth in a scientific and educational way for all people,” the bishop said.Zarenkov said that the cutting-edge technology that will be used to build and operate the planetarium will make it a valuable tool where children and adults will be educated about the beauties of space and of the universe in general.The aim, the bishopric said in a statement, “is to make the planetarium a source of inspiration for further learning, observation and vision of space, for people to discover through this journey of research the true love of God the Creator and Architect of the universe.”You May LikePrettyWomanMag.comTop 30 Most Beautiful Women in the WorldPrettyWomanMag.comUndoSarella Johnson | Go Fund MeClick here to support First Aid Center In Ghana organized by Sarella JohnsonSarella Johnson | Go Fund MeUndoCancer Symptoms | Search Ads Common Signs That Your Body is Fighting CancerCancer Symptoms | Search Ads Undo From space heroes to artists: women written out of historyUndoIran’s Revolutionary Guards publish purported exchange with British warshipUndoCyprus’ Dothraki warriorUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
