Supporters of Raja Throw Stones at Players Bus 4 Injured

Rabat – After losing to Rapide Oued Zem (3-1) on Wednesday in the small town of Oued Zem, the players of Raja Casablanca were targeted by “angry supporters,” who threw several rocks and firecrackers at the players’ bus, injuring four, according to AFP.Videos that circulated in social media showed the players–visibly shocked–talking to the press about the attack. One of the player said that he wanted to lodge a complaint against the perpetrators.The Raja spokesman told AFP Thursday that four people were injured (three players and the driver) during the assault, adding that the club was going to file a complaint. “The Raja [supporters in the] public is very severe with the team because they are used to winning,” he said. “It’s a shame…we almost lost our lives,” he added.The triple winners of the African Champions League is known for the fervor of their fans, the atmosphere that prevails during their matches, and acts of violence and vandalism accompanying some of their games.In February, supporters of the green team started a fight with the supporters of the red team, KACM, which resulted in considerable material and financial loss for Marrakech Football stadium.The disciplinary committee of Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) penalized Raja team supporters for vandalizing the stadium and throwing chairs at other spectators and law enforcement agents, which resulted in 14 injured.FRMF fined the Raja club MAD 50,000 and restricted Raja supporters from attending two upcoming matches. Twenty supporters also received jail time.According to AFP, Morocco’s iconic football club, Raja, “has been in financial crisis for several months, with repeated strikes by players protesting delays in paying their salaries.”The Raja club president, Said Hasbane, resigned from his position last month. read more

Closing Bell TSX tumbles 236 points market steps back after series of

TORONTO – The Toronto stock market tumbled more than 200 points Wednesday as markets gave back a chunk of gains collected over the previous four days of solid, triple-digit advances.The S&P/TSX composite index dropped 235.64 points to 14,312.07, led by falling resource stocks as prices for oil hit a two-year low.Losses picked up at mid-morning when reports surfaced that a gunman had opened fire at the National War Memorial in Ottawa, fatally wounding a soldier, then moved to nearby Parliament Hill and wounded a security guard before the attacker was himself shot dead. A manhunt was still underway in the national capital, with reports there may have been as many as three gunmen.However, analysts thought that while there may have been a short, knee-jerk reaction to the shootings, the declines on the TSX had everything to do with markets stepping back after a recent big move upward.“The market was trading down at the open, it was already in that trend, so the decline was to be expected,” said Michael Greenberg, portfolio manager at Franklin Templeton Solutions Group.The Canadian dollar was down 0.12 of a cent at 88.94 cents US as the Bank of Canada announced that it was leaving its key rate unchanged at one per cent. In its monetary policy report, released at the same time as the rate announcement, the bank adjusted the economic growth prediction it made in July, nudging it up one-tenth of a point to 2.3 per cent for 2014.Traders also took in a worse than expected reading on mid-summer Canadian retail sales. Statistics Canada reported retail sales fell 0.3 per cent overall in August. Economists had expected a flat reading.U.S. indexes also gave up ground after a string of sharp run-ups, with the Dow Jones industrials down 153.49 points at 16,461.32, the Nasdaq falling 36.63 points to 4,382.85 and the S&P 500 index giving back 14.17 points to 1,927.11.The TSX had gained almost 700 points over the previous four sessions in a rebound that followed a big sell-off in markets triggered in part by worries about the global economy. The TSX is down seven per cent from the record highs set in early September, although still ahead six per cent year to date.Investors have also been concerned about the impending end to the U.S. Federal Reserve’s key stimulus program involving the purchase of hundreds of billions of dollars of bonds.Analysts have been careful to warn that it’s too early to sound the all-clear on the current retracement and that volatility will be a fixture on markets for a while yet.“And volatility is not necessarily a bad thing, it’s a natural thing for markets,” Greenberg said.In earnings news, Canadian National Railway (TSX:CNR) posted net income of $853 million, up 21 per cent from a year earlier. Revenues grew 16 per cent to a record $2.7 billion but adjusted earnings came in at $1.04, a penny short of expectations and its shares dipped 50 cents to $75.18.The energy sector led TSX decliners with a 3.3 per cent slide as the December crude contract in New York dropped $1.97 to US$80.52 a barrel, oil’s lowest settlement since June 28, 2012. The plunge came amid downward pressure on the euro, which drove up the value of the U.S. dollar. Commodities are priced in greenbacks. Also, data showed crude supplies rose by 7.1 million barrels last week, about three times more than expected.The base metals sector declined three per cent as December copper faded a penny to US$3.02 a pound.The gold sector about three fell per cent while December bullion faded $6.20 to US$1,245.10 an ounce.Financials were also a major drag, falling 1.1 per cent. TOP STORIESShell applauds B.C. for halving tax on multibillion-dollar LNG projectsBank of Canada cancels press conference after shooting on Parliament HillBlackBerry’s 27 new patents reveal conference calling services, wearables in the worksRogers breaking CRTC rules with exclusive features in NHL sports app, says Bell TVWHAT’S ON DECK THURSDAYECONOMIC NEWSUNITED STATES8:30 a.m. Weekly jobless claims: Economists expect 281,000 new claims9 a.m. FHFA House Price Index (Aug): Economists expect 0.3% rise9:45 a.m. Markit Flash Manufacturing PMI (Oct): Economists expect reading of 5710 a.m. Leading Indicators (Sept): Economists expect 0.7% riseCORPORATE NEWSCANADAAlamos Gold Inc Q3 earnings: Analysts expect .006¢ a share Cenovus Energy Inc Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 42¢ a share Corus Entertainment Inc    Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 41¢ a share Domtar Corp Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 80¢ a share Husky Energy Inc    Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 58¢ a share Imax Corp Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 10¢ a share Potash Corp Sask Inc Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 41¢ a share Rogers Communications Inc    Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 88¢ a share Shaw Communications ‘b’ Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 37¢ a share UNITED STATESAmazon.com Inc  Q3 earnings: Analysts expect loss of 3¢ a share Caterpillar Inc.

Afghan police helping to promote stability in troubled northern areas UN reports

Manoel de Almeida e Silva told the press that the ceasefire in the north continues to hold and the security situation is reported as having significantly improved. A contingent of Kabul-based police has been deployed at checkpoints in Mazar city and its surroundings, while UN restrictions on road missions have been lifted except in two areas.The spokesman pointed to “promising” developments in Balkh province’s Sholgara district, which has remained calm since a peace agreement was signed there in late August. “This is due mainly to a nascent police force in the district that is performing its functions with growing credibility,” he said.With international support, the police unit has been able to buy vehicles, uniforms, radios and other equipment. “The result is the emergence of a force that is representative of the population they serve and inclusive of the factions in this area,” Mr. de Almeida e Silva said. read more

Vancouver man accused in child porn case

first_imgA Vancouver man who was arrested in February during an underage sex sting appeared Friday in Clark County Superior Court for allegedly possessing dozens of images of child pornography.David W. Collins, 55, appeared on 10 counts of first-degree possessing depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, court records show.Dropbox Inc., a file-hosting service, contacted the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children on Nov. 8, 2016, about an account that appeared to be used to upload child pornography.The case was initially investigated by the Oregon Department of Justice but was reassigned to the Vancouver Police Department’s Digital Evidence Cybercrime Unit in October, according to an affidavit of probable cause.Dropbox found that the account, which was later traced back to Collins, had been used to upload at least 10 movie files depicting child pornography, the affidavit states.Collins was arrested Feb. 18 by the Washington State Patrol after meeting with an undercover officer during a child sex-trafficking sting conducted by various law enforcement agencies. His cellphone was seized at that time, and numerous images of child pornography were discovered on it, court records said.last_img read more

Newspaper Magazine Files for Bankruptcy

first_imgThe Chapter 7 petition said RiseUp has fewer than 50 creditors and there will be no funds available for unsecured creditors, the Star reported.Distributed inside major newspapers across the country, RiseUp launched last summer with the mission to “provide an ongoing conversation for all races and ethnicities to better understand each other and to build stronger communities, cities, nations and a better world,” Ellis said at the time. In March, RiseUp and EMMG were sued by the Star for $2.2 million in unpaid printing and distribution fees, as well as interest and legal fees. In December, the Los Angeles Newspaper Group filed a breach of contract suit against RiseUp, alleging the magazine owed it $93,306 for unspecified goods and services.“An ongoing conversation about race is still very much needed,” Ellis said. “This is a very sad day for all of us.” The owners of RiseUp—a four million-circulation weekly newspaper magazine that quietly launched last June only to fold two months later—have filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection.According to the petition, filed this week in Missouri bankruptcy court, RiseUp and parent Ellis Management Marketing Group carried liabilities between $1 million and $10 million and assets of less than $50,000, the Kansas City Star reported. “The print version of RiseUp magazine has suffered the same challenges as much of the newspaper industry,” RiseUp co-founder and EMMG president and CEO Janice Ellis wrote in a statement e-mailed to FOLIO:. “We have been struggling the last several months to improve the financial condition of the company, but economic circumstances have made it tough to generate the necessary revenues to continue operations. We did everything we could to resume publishing the print version.”last_img read more

Supreme Court overturns parental notification law for minors seeking abortions

first_imgAlaska Supreme Court JusticesFront Row (L-R): Senior Justice Dana A. Fabe (Ret.), Chief Justice Craig Stowers, Justice Daniel E. WinfreeBack Row (L-R): Justice Peter J. Maassen, Justice Joel H. Bolger (Photo courtesy of the Alaska Court System)Friday the Alaska Supreme Court overturned the state’s parental notification law for minors seeking abortions. The 2010 voter-passed initiative required an unmarried woman under 18 who wanted to terminate her pregnancy to notify her parents 48 hours before the procedure. A woman could go to court and ask a judge for an exception, but would have to prove she was either mature enough to make the decision on their own, or that she was being abused. The court deemed the law unconstitutional.Listen nowIn the opinion, Justice Daniel Winfree wrote that the notification law violates the equal protection clause of the state’s constitution. Three justices agreed with that decision, but for different reasons. They argued it violates the privacy clause.Laura Einstein is chief legal counsel for Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest, one of the plaintiffs in the case. She said that they are gratified by the decision.The organization knows anecdotally that most underage women do involve their parents when making these decisions, she said, but there’s a smaller group of women who can’t.“The group that we were most concerned about protecting were the ones for whom notifying a parent was risky to their family situation either because it was an abusive household, it was an unsupportive household, [or] it was a place where there was substance abuse.”The only dissenting justice was Craig Stowers, who wrote that a judicial bypass was a “negligible hurdle” for young women since they would be provided with free legal counsel and could be excused from school for a hearing.But Einstein with Planned Parenthood says those measures represent is a significant barrier. “At trial we produced a lot of testimony about what an onerous, daunting, intimidating, and time consuming option that is.”Einstein said even if a woman went to court and the judge excused her from school, her parents would still be notified that she was absent.Anchorage Republican Senator Mia Costello was one of the sponsors of the ballot initiative before she was elected to public office and said she’s disappointed in the ruling.“As a parent and as an Alaskan and as an American, I think that we’re at a time right now where parental involvement and parental rights should be strengthened in our society rather than diminished.”She said it’s a wakeup call for parents to be more involved with their children’s lives.Costello said she will not pursue a similar bill in the next legislative session because she wants to focus on the state’s fiscal problems.last_img read more

Tata Steels future in limbo as Britain exits EU

first_imgTata Steel needs to rethink its strategy with regards to its U.K. operations, now that Britain has decided to leave the European Union. A source close to the company told the Financial Times that the EU referendum verdict may damage the Tata Group’s chances of maintaining its operations in the region.Three Tata companies that have significant exposure in the U.K. include Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Tata Motors Ltd and Tata Steel Ltd. After Britain voted to exit the European Unionon Friday, the shares of all three companies fell, Mint reported.The shares of Tata Steel fell 6.61 percent to Rs. 311.70, while shares of TCS fell 2.78 percent to Rs. 2, 570.70.

Mamatas proposal to rename West Bengal as Bangla rejected

first_imgMamata Banerjee, the chief minister of West Bengal and chief of Trinamool Congress (TMC), gestures as she arrives to cast her vote at a polling station during the final phase of general election in Kolkata, India, on 19 May 2019. Reuters File PhotoIn what could trigger a fresh round of conflict between the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Central government of India and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, the Centre on Wednesday turned down the latter’s proposal to rename the eastern state as ‘Bangla’.In July 2018, the West Bengal Assembly had passed a resolution to rename the state of West Bengal as ‘Bangla’, apparently for the ease of doing business in Parliament. The proposal had been sent to the Union home ministry for approval.On Wednesday, the home ministry informed the Rajya Sabha through a written reply that the Centre has not cleared the name of the state as ‘Bangla’.Replying to an unstarred question by Rajya Sabha MP Ritabrata Banerjee, state minister for home Nityanand Rai further informed, “Change in the name of a state further requires Constitutional amendment, after taking into consideration all relevant factors.”As per the government of West Bengal, the rationale behind renaming it as ‘Bangla’ was to ensure that matters pertaining to the state figured alphabetically at the top end in the list of business in both houses of Parliament.West Bengal typically figures towards the end of the business list for either house which results in matters pertaining to the state coming up for discussion much beyond the lunch break.Top leaders of the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress as well as senior bureaucrats in the West Bengal government had argued that by the time issues of the state came up for discussion, the house was more than half empty on a typical day.However, this is not the first instance that the Central government has rejected the proposal to rename West Bengal. In 2016, the Centre had rejected a proposal by the West Bengal government to give three names to the state – Bangla in Bengali, Bengal in English and Bangal in Hindi.The Centre had returned the proposal to the West Bengal government asking it to submit a single name following which a fresh resolution for ‘Bangla’ was passed by the state government.The BJP and the Trinamool Congress had been in a tough fight in West Bengal during the recently-concluded general election.There was a war of words between leaders of both parties last month following attacks upon on-duty doctors in Burdwan medical college of West Bengal that led to a shutdown of hospitals in the state.last_img read more

The best planet names in No Mans Sky so far

first_imgYou’ve probably heard by now that No Man’s Sky has a lot of planets. We mean A LOT of planets. So many that you could spend your entire life exploring the universe and never see them all. But the best part about it is that the planets you do explore, you can name, and after the game launched late last night a whole bunch of great names have been chosen already.When a name has been chosen in No Man’s Sky, that’s it. There can only be one in the entire galaxy, so there’s a bit of an arms race for the coolest names going on right now. Fortunately PC and PS4 gamers are on separate servers, so PC gamers still have a chance to claim some of the more popular titles when the game hits that platform in a few days.Here are some of our favorite planets currently out there. Good luck finding them! 1/17″Don’t Go Here” is the perfect name for a planet full of deadly alien beasts. Anyone who visits this deserves what they get. 1/17There may be quintillions of planets in this universe but a good percentage of these are named Harambe, the gorilla that was shot by zoo workers a few months ago. 1/17The No Man’s Sky creators keeps tabs on all the planet names being chosen, and they pointed out that one of the first ones that reviewers went for was Poopland. “Journalists ¯\_(シ)_/¯” 1/17Got the time to explore this planet and be among the living? Planet Anthrax may be for you. 1/17Planet Fourtwenty. Because when you reach a planet whose weather is “Baked” , what else can you call it? 1/17Planet No New Friends. The loneliest planet in the galaxy. 1/17A Doctor Who fan named their first planet Gallifrey after the Time Lords’ home world. 1/17This orange mess of a planet is named Trump. “Nuke it from orbit, it’s the only way to be sure.” 1/17When the No Man’s Sky devs stopped by the Colbert Show, he got to name his own planet and universe. Hopefully he’s jumped back online to claim them again after the wipe! 1/17In case anyone needed a second inhabitable frozen world to reside in, here’s Alaska 2. 1/17Planet Smurf isn’t quite as blue as we expected, but it no doubt has plenty of little creatures running around it. 1/17Again, if you hand journalists a game they will do everything they can to make it silly. Welcome to Big Buttistan. 1/17Not sure if Purge Planet means that everything kills one another one day a year, or that they’re always throwing up. Probably the latter, from the look of things. 1/17If you were thinking of naming your homeworld “Planet McPlanetyface”, you’re not alone in the universe. The devs have pointed out they were up to Planet McPlanetyface 5 before the wipe. 1/17While the majority of gamers seem to be concerned with thinking up silly names, at least one thoughtful player named a planet in honor of his mother who had recently passed away. 1/17Planet ^$#%@*^(*!! Try to name a planet with curse words and you’ll get this message instead. Keep it clean out there! 1/17Planet Hell’s Gate is the perfect name for anything this hot. Sheesh. <>last_img read more

The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Pit and Dark Pit

first_img ‘Astral Chain’ and Other Dumb Nintendo SongsThe Ultimate Super Smash Bros. Character Guide: Hero Pit Ascends!Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is huge. Not just in terms of hype and importance and sales potential, but just in terms of sheer stuff. The Nintendo Switch mascot fighter features over a hundred stages, nearly a thousand songs, and too many Pokemon and items and Assist Trophies to think of crammed onto a cartridge you can plan on the go or on a TV. When you have as many big franchises as Nintendo, putting them all in one game will make that game is very big boy indeed.But the biggest, most exciting thing about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is its mind-blowing, heartwarming roster of playable characters. Fighting games pride themselves not just on the strength of their mechanics but the strength of its fighters, especially in a crossover fighters like this. And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate crushes all rivals by including every single playable character from the across the four previous games in the twenty-year-old series. Include the new combatants and so far we have over 70 fighters to wrap our heads around. We’re excited, but we’re also intimidated. So to get ready for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, every day, character by character, we’re creating the ultimate guide to all of its characters. Today’s fighters: Pit and Dark Pit.AdChoices广告 Stay on targetcenter_img Who Are They?Although his game is called Kid Icarus, this good little angel boy is named Pit. As games, the original Kid Icarus on NES and its Game Boy sequel aren’t that great. They’re like mash-ups of Mario and Zelda and Metroid but somehow worse than all three. That said, between its weird sense of humor, cool Greek-inspired look, and long hiatus until Kid Icarus: Uprising on 3DS, the series is a cult classic for Nintendo fans.Smash HistoryWhen Pit first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl he sported a radical new anime redesign that made you forget how retro his original game was. And Smash creator Masahiro Sakurai must have become so enamored with this version of the character that he then directed Kid Icarus: Uprising, which first featured Pit’s antihero rival Dark Pit (inspired by a Brawl costume). Pit’s changes in Uprising subsequently flowed back into Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS, like the decision to include Dark Pit as a full-fledged Echo Fighter.What Looks New in Ultimate?Pit is a lovable but bland little simpleton in his games, so I guess it only makes sense for him to be a good but not spectacular character in Smash. Even giving him showy new weapons taken from Uprising didn’t give him much of a competitive edge. In Ultimate, Pit seems improved but basically unchanged. And Dark Pit is largely the same but the consensus is his faster and stronger but less agile arrows are a bad trade-off.Our Hopes?What we really want is an HD remake of Kid Icarus: Uprising for Switch as more people need to experience Sakurai’s bonkers, huge in scope, Metal Gear-esque script about the nature of gods and their relationship to humanity. But as for Pit and Dark Pit in Smash Ultimate? We’re pretty much good.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases Dec. 7 for Nintendo Switch. Until we can play more for ourselves, changes we talk about here are mostly speculation. For more thoughts check out our Smash hands-on as well as cool Switch games to play that aren’t Smash Bros., because those definitely exist.View as: One Page Slides1/761. Read Mario’s Guide2.

Clarius Mobile Health’s user-friendly wireless scanners pair with iOS and Android devices for point-of-care assessments to help diagnose critically ill patients before they reach the hospital.”One of the biggest obstacles to providing emergency care in the field is the lack of diagnostic tools,” said Branden Miesemer, a flight paramedic and medical educator in Nebraska. “Having the ability to use real-time ultrasound imaging in the field will help improve treatment and patient outcomes.”Miesemer, who is the founder of EMSPOCUS and teaches point-of-care ultrasound at workshops and online, won a draw for a free Clarius Scanner in September. He picked up his prize at the EMS World Expo. “Winning the Clarius Scanner gives me more opportunities to educate EMS providers on the benefits of ultrasound,” Miesemer said.  “Since I can carry Clarius with me, I’ll be able to show people what I’m talking about whenever the subject comes up.”Clarius ultrasound scanners are wireless and work with a mobile app that is compatible with most iOS and Android smartphones and tablets available today. The Clarius C3 multipurpose ultrasound scanner is designed to image the abdomen, lungs and for quick scans of the heart. The Clarius L7 linear scanner is ideal for guiding procedures such as nerve blocks and targeted injections.Clarius Scanners are built with a magnesium case that is designed to withstand difficult environments. The scanners will be water-resistant for easy cleaning and sterilization.  They are powered with a rechargeable battery. Clarius scanners are pending regulatory clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CE and Health Canada. Miesemer and all other early users are only able to use the Clarius Scanner for teaching and testing on models. Clarius is ISO Certified and has met all safety requirements.For more information: www.clarius.me FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Ultrasound Imaging | July 31, 2019 Studies Confirm Clinical Value of ShearWave Elastography for Liver Fibrosis Evaluation SuperSonic Imagine announced the publication of the results of its prospective multicentric clinical study conducted in… read more 360 Photos | Ultrasound Imaging | July 09, 2019 360 Degree View of a Mitral Valve Ultrasound Exam on a Vivid E95 System A view of a mitral valve on a GE Healthcare Vivid E95 … read more The ScanTrainer transvaginal simulator is one example of Intelligent Ultrasound’s simulation technologies. 360 Photos | Ultrasound Imaging | July 08, 2019 360 Degree View of an Echocardiography Exam on the SC2000 System This is a 360 degree view of a live cardiac echo demonstration for the Siemens Healthineers Acuson SC2000… read more center_img 360 Photos | Ultrasound Imaging | July 11, 2019 360 Degree View of a Smartphone Performing a Cardiac Ultrasound Exam This 360 degree photo shows a basic, point-of-care cardiac echocardiogram being performed using a smartphone turned i read more News | Ultrasound Imaging | July 26, 2019 Intelligent Ultrasound Group Collaborating With the National Imaging Academy Wales Artificial intelligence (AI)-based ultrasound software and simulation company Intelligent Ultrasound Group plc (AIM:… read more Technology | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | July 02, 2019 Philips Extends Advanced Automation on Epiq CVx Cardiovascular Ultrasound Platform Philips recently announced new advanced automation capabilities on its Epiq CVx and Epiq CVxi cardiac ultrasound… read more Related Content News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 05, 2019 Digital Health Devices Used at Point of Care May Improve Diagnostic Certainty A West Virginia-based rural medical outreach event showcased the use of point-of-care technology in an ambulatory… read more News | Ultrasound Imaging | October 11, 2016 Clarius Wireless Handheld Ultrasound Scanners Displayed at Emergency Medical Services World Expo Ultra-portable ultrasound scanners will improve treatment in the field News | Ultrasound Women’s Health | July 11, 2019 FDA Clears Koios DS Breast 2.0 AI-based Software Koios Medical announced its second 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).last_img read more
