Netflixs first Arabic original causes controversy in Jordan

AMMAN, Jordan — Netflix’s first Arabic original series, the supernatural teen drama “Jinn,” has debuted worldwide with much fanfare, but sparked uproar in Jordan where it is set.State-run media reported that the thriller’s release prompted condemnation from several government officials who vowed to censor it for alleged “lewd scenes” that purportedly violate public morals. Jordan’s army website says the cyber-crimes unit is attempting to pull it from Jordanian Netflix.But it was unclear whether the government would make good on the threats. Netflix Middle East denounced the controversy on Twitter as a “wave of bullying.”In a statement Friday, the streaming service said the show deals with “universal themes” that “can be viewed as provocative.” A spokesman said content removals are rare but that Netflix complies with official requests.The Associated Press read more

UN summit in Johannesburg agrees to expand mandate of global environment fund

In one of the first signs of progress at the United Nations World Summit for Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa, governments today agreed on key provisions regarding a global environment fund.During negotiations related to the Summit’s draft plan of action, governments decided to expand the mandate of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) in order for it to serve as the funding mechanism for the Convention to Combat Desertification, which is of major interest to African countries. Today’s decision follows a recent move by 32 countries to replenish the GEF by $2.9 billion over the next four years.The GEF was established for a pilot phase in 1991 in the run-up to the 1992 Rio Earth Summit to focus on biodiversity, climate change, international waters, land degradation, the ozone layer and, more recently, issues like the phasing out persistent organic pollutants.During its pilot phase the Facility was given $1.2 billion, and subsequently was replenished twice, for $2.02 billion and $2.75 billion, before it was re-structured in 1994. The third replenishment was due this year.In other news from the Summit, the Foreign Minister of South Africa, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, chaired the first of six plenary sessions aimed at building a framework for action in the areas where the Summit is expected to produce results – water, energy, health, agricultural productivity and biodiversity.Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Envoy to the Summit, Jan Pronk, also moderated a second interactive discussion on health.So far, the UN has accredited 12,625 government delegates as well as representatives from non-governmental organizations and the media to the Summit. read more

SMMT tunes in to the latest digital radio technology

The latest exhibit in SMMT’s Westminster showroom demonstrates the most up-to-date packages in the AutoDAB product range from Connects2, one of Europe’s leading companies in the development and integration of in-car technology interfaces.Vehicle manufacturers have committed to fitting digital radio as standard by the end of 2013, introducing nearly two million units to the vehicle parc each year. While there are hundreds of thousands of vehicles already fitted with digital radio, around 25 million vehicles will require conversion to receive the signal after switchover.AutoDAB is a complete range of electronic interfaces that offers a digital radio solution compatible with a substantial portion of the existing UK vehicle parc. Rather than a replacing the vehicle’s head unit, or using a portable device that mounts to the windscreen, AutoDAB is hidden away behind the existing units.The first products were launched to the aftermarket in September 2011. To date, AutoDAB has been adopted as an approved accessory by BMW, MG Motor, SEAT, Skoda, Vauxhall and Volkswagen, with more vehicle manufacturers expected to follow by the end of the year.Connects2 says that AutoDAB is, “a key piece in the jigsaw to assist Digital Radio UK and the government to have confidence that digital radio can be made available to all vehicle users.”London leads the take-up of digital radio in the UK, with 56% of all radio listeners listening to digital radio, and 35% of all radio listening on a digital platform. Digital listening in London has been growing at a rate of over 23% per year, and if maintained will rise to 50% of all listening by mid-2014.You can find out more about AutoDAB at www.connects2.co.uk.Click through the slideshow below to see all the photos from SMMT’s exhibition space.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

Un projet immobilier menace une plage dAndalousie

first_imgUn projet immobilier menace une plage d’AndalousieAlors que l’Andalousie affiche un taux de chômage record, un projet de construction immobilier de grande envergure a été adopté. Il s’agit de construire 84.000 mètres carrés d’habitations sur une plage paradisiaque connue pour sa quiétude et son côté naturel.Les écologistes et les baigneurs ne décolèrent pas après le vote de la mairie de Tarifa, en Andalousie. Les élus, exception faite des écolo-communistes d’Izquierda Unida, ont en effet approuvé le projet de construction de 350 maisons et d’hôtels offrant 1.400 places. En tout, 84.000 mètres carrés devraient être construits sur un terrain de 70 hectares. Toutefois, les détails du plan qui a été voté ne sont pas connus.”C’est une folie : ils vont détruire un paradis”, s’exclame Noelia Jurado, 37 ans, membre de la plate-forme citoyenne qui s’est créée lundi, “Sauvons Valdevaqueros”. La mairie argue du fait qu’un tel projet soulagerait l’économie tandis que cette région du sud de l’Espagne connait un taux de chômage de 33%, un bien triste record. Les écologistes ne sont ainsi pas les seuls a être en colère : la page Facebook de la plate-forme compte déjà 11.000 membres. De même, des dizaines d’internautes ont posté les photos souvenir de vacances idylliques sur le site du quotidien El Pais, qui a ouvert un espace dédié. “Ne la détruisez pas, s’il vous plaît”, s’exclame une lectrice qui a envoyé l’image de trois jeunes filles assises sur la dune dominant la plage. Mais ce ne serait pas la première fois que l’immobilier cause des ravages en Espagne. Greenpeace indique en effet que, ces 20 dernières années, l’Espagne aurait perdu chaque jour l’équivalent de huit terrains de football de côte vierge, soit plus de 50 000 hectares. “Il est incompréhensible que les responsables publics lancent encore ce type de projets alors que ce modèle économique est obsolète”, affirme Pilar Marcos, responsable de la protection des côtes de l’organisation.Des futurs hôtels et maisons qui resteront vides ?À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?La mairie se défend sur son site en précisant qu’”il s’agit d’un urbanisme moderne, très éloigné de la construction à outrance qui a peuplé nos côtes il y a des décennies”. La municipalité rappelle également que le projet n’autoriserait que des maisons d’un étage et des hôtels sur trois niveaux. Bien entendu, et surtout, il permettrait de créer de l’emploi. S’y opposer est donc contraire aux intérêts des habitants, assure le maire de Tarifa. “C’est la pire chose qu’ils peuvent nous faire”, estime-t-il.Les défenseurs de la plage ne sont pas convaincus pour autant. Pilar Marcos souligne d’ailleurs que ces hôtels et maisons resteront certainement vides “car la meilleure publicité pour Tarifa, c’est justement sa plage vierge”. En outre, remarque Noelia Jurado, “il reste encore à Tarifa énormément de logements neufs qui sont vides depuis quatre ans”.Le 1 juin 2012 à 19:29 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Is Missy a Cyberman Michelle Gomez Teases Alternate Doctor Who Plot

first_imgMichelle Gomez’s Mistress is one of the finest Doctor Who characters of the revival series.But is the enigmatic Time Lord hiding an important secret?“Wherever there’s a Cyberman; Missy’s not far behind. She might be one,” Gomez teased during a recent chat with “The Fan Show”‘s Christel Dee.The original Mondasian Cybermen are set to return for the last two episodes of season 10, though Gomez declined to confirm her character’s association with the “less streamlined” robots.Missy teamed up with the murderous cyborgs at the end of series eight, when she released an army of the modernized androids to deploy particles that convert compatible organic matter—living or dead—into a new Cyberman.Now, after more than 50 years off the air, the original version of the deadly enemies return for a two-part finale written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay.“Does she [Missy] have something to do with the Mondasian Cybermen coming back?” Dee asked Gomez, who slyly shuts down the question.“I can’t tell you that!” she responds, adding that, “I think they’re great. I think they’re really super.”Gomez last week announced plans to leave Doctor Who at the end of season 10, joining exiting “pals” Steven Moffat and Peter Capaldi.“I wouldn’t want to be the Master to anybody else. Because I’ve really, really enjoyed disturbing Peter/the Doctor,” she told Dee. “I just don’t know who I’m gonna get to annoy like that again, quite as much. Apart from my husband, obviously, and my close family and friends.”The Scottish actor, who has appeared in only a handful of episodes since her debut as the gender-bending Master in 2014, consistently brings style, charisma, levity, and a chilling brilliance to the show.Michelle Gomez as Missy (via BBC)And it’s not over yet. In Saturday’s episode “Extremis,” Missy—now a prisoner on Carnathon, facing her death at the hands of the Doctor—promises to be good.“I promise. I’ll turn good, please. Teach me how to be good,” the self-proclaimed queen of evil begged for mercy.“If you’re just playing one thing all of the time, it gets a bit dull, and a bit tiresome,” Gomez explained, when asked if it’s been fun to explore that alternate side of her character. “So it has been wonderful to be able to explore what Missy’s reactions might be if she were ever to have a conscience.”For more insight into the production side of Doctor Who, check out Dee’s interview with script editor Nick Lambon in the video above.Stream all of Doctor Who now for free with your Amazon Prime membership.last_img read more

ASA Urges Senate to Vote Yes on Russia PNTR Bill

first_imgSt. Louis, Mo… Reacting to news that a Senate vote on the Russia and Moldova Jackson-Vanik Repeal Act of 2012 may happen as early as Wednesday of this week the American Soybean Association (ASA) is encouraging all senators to vote yes on the House-passed version of the bill without amendment. The bill, if passed by the Senate and signed into law by President Barack Obama, would graduate Russia from the Jackson-Vanik Amendment to the Trade Act of 1974, and establish permanent normal trade relations (PNTR) with the world’s ninth-largest economy. The House overwhelmingly passed its version of the bill, H.R. 6156, on November 16. ASA President Steve Wellman, a soybean farmer from Syracuse, Neb., issued the following statement on the legislation:“We call on the Senate to vote yes on the Russia and Moldova Jackson-Vanik Repeal Act as quickly and in the same bipartisan fashion as their counterparts in the House of Representatives. By establishing PNTR with Russia, American soybean farmers can reap the benefits of more than 140 million consumers and a fast-growing economy, which last year imported more than $770 million in American meat, poultry, egg and dairy products, each of which require soybean meal as feed in the production process. Until the U.S. graduates Russia from the Jackson-Vanik Amendment and establishes PNTR, we will not be able to fully access the Russian market without penalty. With this bill signed into law, our farmers can compete in one of the world’s largest and most promising economies.”ASA represents all U.S. soybean farmers on domestic and international issues of importance to the soybean industry. ASA’s advocacy efforts are made possible through the voluntary membership in ASA by more than 21,000 farmers in 30 states where soybeans are grown.###For more information contact:Steve Wellman, ASA President, 402-269-7024, wellmanfarms@sbllcweb.comPatrick Delaney, ASA Communications Director, 202-969-7040, pdelaney@soy.orglast_img read more

first_imgNew Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern reacts during a briefing in Wellington, capital of New Zealand, on March 16, 2019. Jacinda Ardern reiterated to the public on Saturday morning that the country’s gun law will be changed. Gunmen opened fire in two separate mosques in Christchurch on Friday, killing 49 people and wounding 48 others.IANSNew Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Thursday announced new gun laws banning all military-style semi-automatic and assault rifles.The announcement follows the terror attack on two mosques in the southern city of Christchurch on March 15 that left at least 50 persons dead and another 50 injured, reports Efe news.The government of New Zealand will amend the gun laws with Prime Minister Adern expecting to have the new legislation in place by April 11 and take measures to prevent the spread of hate messages on social media.New Zealand Police published on Thursday a list of almost 30 victims of the terror attack perpetrated against the two mosques.The list, which contains the names of 29 people, follows the first list with the names of five victims, which was published on Wednesday.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.
