Geneva – Morocco denounced on Thursday before the Human Rights Council (HRC) in Geneva, the contradiction of Algeria on self-determination, since it claims to support this principle and at the same time allows its army to kill the people who choose self-determination and decide to leave the Tindouf camps.Reacting to a statement made the previous day before the HRC by Algerian Foreign Minister on the situation of human rights in the Moroccan Sahara, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Morocco to the UN in Geneva, Omar Hilale described the way Algiers addresses the issue of self-determination as “an attempt to mislead the Council of human Rights.”The diplomat who spoke under the right of reply, noted that Morocco’s Sahara autonomy provides for consultation with the people of the Moroccan Sahara.” Hilale recalled that the Algerian army killed on January 5, two Sahrawis and wounded several others as they reached the Mauritanian border, calling on the HRC, the High Commissioner for Human Rights, and the High Commissioner for Refugees to shed light on this serious incident.
Rabat – The National Office of Food Safety (ONSSA) has begun tagging sheep and goats destined to be slaughtered during Eid al-Adha.Eid al-Adha, the “sacrifice festival,” is one of the most important celebrations in the Islamic calendar. Expected to take place this year between August 11 and August 13, it is celebrated by slaughtering sheep, goats, or cows.“Tagging will be done for free to benefit all livestock farmers across the country,” ONSSA said in a press release. ONSSA is inserting a yellow ring into the ears of the animals, which lists a unique serial number as well as the words Eid al-Adha.“The number of sheep and goats identified for the Aid Al Adha has reached 7 million,” ONSSA added.The operation is designed to facilitate the traceability of the animals. In particular, the tagging ensures their origins can be traced in the event of a food scandal, stated ONSSA.Over the last three years, consumers have complained about meat slaughtered for Eid al-Adha turning green and decaying almost immediately.During the festival last year, ONSSA received over 3,300 phone calls from people expressing concern about the quality of the meat, reported Huffington Post Maghreb.Similar complaints about green meat were made in 2017. ONSSA stated at the time that the contamination of meat was likely due to non-compliance with hygiene measures during slaughter and butchering, the outlet reported.
The Coal Authority, sponsored by the UK Department of Energy & Climate Change, has awarded Cluff Natural Resources (CNR), an investing company founded by natural reources entrepeneur Algy Cluff which focuses on investing in global oil and gas and mining assets, two Conditional Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) Licences, Option for Lease and non-exclusive Exploration Licences for two UCG prospects in the UK. These acquisitions are part of CNR’s strategy to build a portfolio of assets in the natural resources sector.Algy Cluff, Chairman and Chief Executive of CNR: “I am delighted to be able to announce the award of these licences which represent a low cost entry into underground coal gasification which is becoming a burgeoning industry. It is well known that coal seams extend into the offshore waters around the UK and with proven technology now available to utilise this energy source, we intend to embark on the process by extracting gas from these coal seams. Formal offer has been received from The Coal Authority for the award of 100% of two low cost UCG Licences totalling 111 ha in the UK. These are the Loughor Estuary project, located in Carmarthenshire, Wales, covering 42 ha, (shown here) and the Dee Estuary project, located on the borders of Merseyside and Northern Wales, covering 69 ha.CNR will apply for relevant planning and environmental permits in order to develop the projects. It is not anticipated that the permitting process will result in a a significant draw on the cash reserves of the company for the short to medium term. CNR intends to use Controlled Retracting Injection Point (CRIP) method to extract the energy content of the coal and will focus on supplying the resulting syngas to customers for a variety of uses and providing a carbon capture solution for carbon dioxide.Cluff: “It is our intention to seek the necessary planning and environmental permits to advance the two projects to production. UCG has the potential to do much to address the UK’s future energy needs, avoids the use of fracking and enables the gas generated to be easily controlled by the supply of oxygen. “These are the first of a series of projects we are looking to acquire. In line with our strategy we remain in discussions regarding a number of suitable natural resource projects, as we look to build a portfolio of highly prospective assets that we will look to develop and, in the process, generate considerable value for shareholders.”Once planning and environmental permits are in order the licences will be developed to production by a team led by Keith Leighfield, an experienced coal practitioner. He has 50 years’ experience in mining at coal and metalliferous mines and has held various positions before becoming the Chief Surveyor and Minerals Manager for British Coal and the first Director of Licensing at the Coal Authority.UCG is a commercially proven industrial process which enables coal, in situ, to be converted into syngas, which is brought to the surface via a production well. Syngas has a number of commercial applications; feed for power generation plants, iron and steel manufacturing, gas-to-liquids processes and fertiliser/methanol production.In addition, the carbon dioxide produced as a result of the UCG process can be sold to mature oil fields as part of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR). EOR is a technique used to increase the amount of crude oil that can be extracted from an oil field through injecting gas into the oil bearing stratum at high pressure.While UCG has been researched and practiced for the past century, recent developments in directional drilling have been critical in enhancing the commercial viability of the extraction process. UCG technology has a commercial track record, with one facility in Uzbekistan supplying syngas to a power station for over 40 years. In addition, a number of projects in South Africa and Australia are moving into commercial production. The drilling techniques underpinning the development of UCG are not dissimilar to those currently used in the production of coal seam methane.UCG works best when exploiting coal at depths in excess of 400 m. CNR will focus on supplying syngas to customers for a variety of uses and providing a carbon capture solution for CO2, where appropriate. Although the process produces CO2 at a rate similar to the traditional use of coal, CNR will seek a carbon solution in each of its projects. EOR is attractive as it achieves more efficient oil recovery from existing fields in combination with deep storage of CO2.The conversion of the coal to syngas is achieved through a controlled underground gasification process initiated by the injection and ignition of oxidants into the coal seam. The coal seam is ignited and gasified, generating a syngas consisting of methane, hydrogen, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.The rate of gasification is controlled by the injection rate of air or oxygen, but this is typically 0.5 t of oxygen for each tonne of coal gasified.There are two primary methods deployed to achieve gasification currently. Cluff Natural Resources plans to use the CRIP method. The CRIP process allows for a borehole to be drilled from the surface and turned so that it can drill parallel with the dip of the coal seam, continuing for approximately 500 m within the seam. Oxygen and steam can then be injected at the point where gasification will occur. This creates a gasification chamber that typically may be in the order of 20 m wide. As the process continues, the chamber will fill with collapsed material from the overlying strata reducing the efficiency of the process. At a certain point, when the chamber is exhausted the process is temporarily shut down and the injection point retracted back along the coal seam, the gasification is then re-started.All UCG processes are similar in that they require a minimum of two boreholes that have to be connected, or linked, together to form a complete circuit for the gases to flow through. One is to inject the gasifying agents and start ignition, known as the injection well; and the other to recover the syngas produced, known as the production well.Historical UCG technology varied from driving underground roadways, or drilling in seam boreholes from underground roadways to vertical boreholes. Thanks to the advancements made with drilling technology in the oil industry it is now possible to perform directional drilling from the surface and the application of this technology is vital to the future development of UCG.

Kalama — The U.S. Coast Guard reported an oil sheen roughly 20 feet by 75 feet Monday morning just past river mile marker 75 near Kalama.Petty Officer 3rd Class Trevor Lilburn said the exact amount and source of the spill are unknown.The Washington Department of Ecology also sent investigators to the river after receiving reports of a spill near Woodland.“We don’t know for sure, but (it) doesn’t sound like it is a really big one … but all spills are a concern,” said Ecology spokeswoman Sandy Howard.
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaiocos, January 25, 2018 – Providenciales – A serious spike in cases of cancer has health officials in the Turks and Caicos rallying behind an idea that there needs to be more informed discussions and serious, activation of plan to do minimize the disease which is killing more and more islanders each year. Dr Armando Sardi was introduced by the Minister of Health, Edwin Astwood and Private sector partner, Dr. Hugh Malcolm as having a expansive background that could rescue the TCI from this globally common, unfavorable trend.Dr. Sardi sat for nearly an hour with members of the Turks and Caicos media core, expounding on the gravity of this often deadly disease, agreeing that indeed the effort to beat cancer must be a collaborative one.“Education, children, girls, boys knowing how to help prevent cancer, how to diagnose early, early vaccination. For example, if you vaccinate a kid, both boys and girls with the vaccine for the viral HP virus, you will prevent 90 percent of the cervical cancers, 90 percent. If women do screening mammograms, you are going to detect the cancer early when it’s curable. Cancer does not mean death, and that is the most important thing to do, we are afraid that if I find cancer I’m going to die, if I operate I’m going to die, it’s going to get bigger, that’s not correct. If cancer is detected early, most cancers will be cured.”As Director of Cancer Medicine at Mercy Medical in Baltimore, Dr Sardi explained what needs to happen…“I am very grateful that the country, and I have already met with several people that are really dedicated to make a change. But we need the help of the industry, the Tourism industry, all the industries in the country, private, government, schools, education, because if we all don’t work together, it will never happen, and as I mentioned before, this is a process that will effect more and more people.”Cancer is up 18% in the Turks and Caicos.#MagneticMediaNews#DrArmandoSardihelpingTCI#letusallhelptoendcancer Related Items:#DrArmandoSardihelpingTCI, #letusallhelptoendcancer, #magneticmedianews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp
Russian President Putin gestures during joint news conference. Reuters file photoA Russian government think tank controlled by Vladimir Putin developed a plan to swing the 2016 US presidential election to Donald Trump and undermine voters’ faith in the American electoral system, three current and four former US officials told Reuters.They described two confidential documents from the think tank as providing the framework and rationale for what US intelligence agencies have concluded was an intensive effort by Russia to interfere with the Nov. 8 election. US intelligence officials acquired the documents, which were prepared by the Moscow-based Russian Institute for Strategic Studies, after the election.The institute is run by retired senior Russian foreign intelligence officials appointed by Putin’s office.The first Russian institute document was a strategy paper written last June that circulated at the highest levels of the Russian government but was not addressed to any specific individuals.It recommended the Kremlin launch a propaganda campaign on social media and Russian state-backed global news outlets to encourage US voters to elect a president who would take a softer line toward Russia than the administration of then-President Barack Obama, the seven officials said.A second institute document, drafted in October and distributed in the same way, warned that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was likely to win the election. For that reason, it argued, it was better for Russia to end its pro-Trump propaganda and instead intensify its messaging about voter fraud to undermine the US electoral system’s legitimacy and damage Clinton’s reputation in an effort to undermine her presidency, the seven officials said.The current and former US officials spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the Russian documents’ classified status. They declined to discuss how the United States obtained them. US intelligence agencies also declined to comment on them.Putin has denied interfering in the US election. Putin’s spokesman and the Russian institute did not respond to requests for comment.The documents were central to the Obama administration’s conclusion that Russia mounted a “fake news” campaign and launched cyber attacks against Democratic Party groups and Clinton’s campaign, the current and former officials said.“Putin had the objective in mind all along, and he asked the institute to draw him a road map,” said one of the sources, a former senior US intelligence official.Trump has said Russia’s activities had no impact on the outcome of the race. Ongoing congressional and FBI investigations into Russian interference have so far produced no public evidence that Trump associates colluded with the Russian effort to change the outcome of the election.Four of the officials said the approach outlined in the June strategy paper was a broadening of an effort the Putin administration launched in March 2016. That month the Kremlin instructed state-backed media outlets, including international platforms Russia Today and Sputnik news agency, to start producing positive reports on Trump’s quest for the US presidency, the officials said.Russia Today did not respond to a request for comment. A spokesperson for Sputnik dismissed the assertions by the US officials that it participated in a Kremlin campaign as an “absolute pack of lies.” “And by the way, it’s not the first pack of lies we’re hearing from ‘sources in US official circles’,” the spokesperson said in an email.PRO-KREMLIN BLOGGERSRussia Today and Sputnik published anti-Clinton stories while pro-Kremlin bloggers prepared a Twitter campaign calling into question the fairness of an anticipated Clinton victory, according to a report by US intelligence agencies on Russian interference in the election made public in January.Russia Today’s most popular Clinton video – “How 100% of the 2015 Clintons’ ‘charity’ went to … themselves” – accumulated 9 millions views on social media, according to the January report.The report said Russia Today and Sputnik “consistently cast president elect-Trump as the target of unfair coverage from traditional media outlets.”The report said the agencies did not assess whether Moscow’s effort had swung the outcome of the race in Trump’s favor, because American intelligence agencies do not “analyze US political processes or US public opinion.”CYBER ATTACKSNeither of the Russian institute documents mentioned the release of hacked Democratic Party emails to interfere with the US election, according to four of the officials. The officials said the hacking was a covert intelligence operation run separately out of the Kremlin.The overt propaganda and covert hacking efforts reinforced each other, according to the officials. Both Russia Today and Sputnik heavily promoted the release of the hacked Democratic Party emails, which often contained embarrassing details.Five of the US officials described the institute as the Kremlin’s in-house foreign policy think tank.The institute’s director when the documents were written, Leonid Reshetnikov, rose to the rank of lieutenant general during a 33-year-career in Russia’s foreign intelligence service, according to the institute’s website. After Reshetnikov retired from the institute in January, Putin named as his replacement Mikhail Fradkov. The institute says he served as the director of Russia’s foreign intelligence service from 2007 to 2016.Reuters was unable to determine if either man was directly involved in the drafting of the documents. Reshetnikov’s office referred questions to the Russian institute.On its website, the Russian institute describes itself as providing “expert appraisals,” “recommendations,” and “analytical materials” to the Russian president’s office, cabinet, National Security Council, ministries and parliament. On 31 Jan, the websites of Putin’s office and the institute posted a picture and transcript of Reshetnikov and his successor Fradkov meeting with Putin in the Kremlin. Putin thanked Reshetnikov for his service and told Fradkov he wanted the institute to provide objective information and analysis.“We did our best for nearly eight years to implement your foreign policy concept,” Reshetnikov told Putin. “The policy of Russia and the policy of the President of Russia have been the cornerstone of our operation.”
by NPR News Merrit Kennedy 8.26.19 5:40pm A pilot who is credited with saving dozens of lives has died. United Flight 232 went into total hydraulic failure while Al Haynes was at the controls in 1989. With the help of three other pilots, he maneuvered the DC-10 to a miraculous crash landing in Sioux City, Iowa, and 184 of the 296 people on board survived.Haynes is widely seen as a hero among aviation experts, akin to Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and his “miracle on the Hudson.” Haynes’ son Dan confirmed to NPR that his father had died. Haynes was in the middle of the flight from Denver to Chicago when an engine suddenly failed. Shortly after that, First Officer Bill Records said he was unable to control the aircraft, as Haynes later recounted to New York magazine.”I thought to myself, How are we going to keep this thing in the sky? You don’t train or drill for something like this, because it’s just not supposed to happen,” he said. The hydraulic system — the way that pilots steer — was down. Haynes and his colleagues were desperately trying to use the throttles and thrust as a crude way to control the aircraft. A pilot who happened to be flying as a passenger on the plane jumped in to manipulate the thrusters. The team was aiming to touch down in Sioux City. After about 45 minutes of tense maneuvering, Haynes got on the loudspeaker.”I’m not going to kid you,” he said to the passengers, as he told New York. “We’re going to make an emergency landing in Sioux City. … It’s going to be a very hard landing, harder than anything you’ve been through. Please pay close attention to the flight attendants’ briefing, and we’ll see you in Sioux City.”The plane touched down with no brakes or spoilers. The cockpit crew lowered the landing gear to try to absorb the shock of landing, Haynes told New York. When it did land, one of the plane’s wings caught the ground and sent the craft cartwheeling down the runway. “I was knocked out after we hit, and I came to in the crash site,” said Haynes. NPR’s Howard Berkes was at the scene of the crash in 1989 and described the wreckage. “There’s one particular pile of aluminum — at least, that’s what it looks like, an unruly stack of crumpled aluminum,” he said. “Well, that’s actually the cockpit of the plane. It doesn’t resemble a cockpit or anything else for that matter. And one of the amazing facts about this whole tragedy is … that three people — the cockpit crew — were found alive in that pile of junk.”Haynes told New York that he felt guilty about surviving the crash in which 112 people died. But the fact that anyone survived is viewed as miraculous. Other pilots have attempted the landing in simulations. As Berkes reported, United pilot Mike Hamilton told The Associated Press that he’s “not aware of any that replicated the success these guys had. … Most of the simulations never made it close to the ground.”In its official accident report, the NTSB said that on a fan disk, there was a “fatigue crack” stemming from a defect in a “critical area.” The disk disintegrated during the flight, which resulted in debris that impacted the plane’s flight controls. Haynes retired in 1991 after working for United Airlines for 35 years, according to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. In Seattle, the museum added, he was “a volunteer umpire for Little League Baseball for over 33 years and a stadium announcer for high school football for over 25 years.”Copyright 2019 NPR.

The research was presented at the 2014 Chicago Multidisciplinary Symposium in Thoracic Oncology.The 300 patients in the study had 340 lesions (tumors) and were treated from Oct. 1, 2003, through Dec. 31, 2012, at the Cleveland Clinic. Patients in the study had a median age of 74 years (range = 37-97 years), a median Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS) of 80 (range = 40-100), and were not candidates for surgery because of associated medical conditions, of which chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) was the most common (62 percent). Median follow-up was 17.4 months (range = 0.3-112.2 months), with 46.7 percent (140) of patients alive at the time of follow-up. Median tumor diameter was 2.4 cm (range 0.1-10 cm), and 36.3 percent of tumors (123) had either no biopsy or a non-diagnostic biopsy. Fifteen percent of patients (45) received two or more SBRT treatments.SBRT for lung cancer necessitates accurate and custom mapping of each individual patient’s anatomy and a way of accounting for breathing motion to optimally target tumors while sparing as much of the surrounding healthy tissue as possible. In this study, all patients were uniformly treated using a vacuum-bag immobilization system and abdominal compression to limit breathing effects. Then, computed tomography (CT) images were acquired to record tumor motion when at rest, full inhalation and full exhalation. These three images merged together generated the internal target volume (ITV) of the tumors, essentially representing a virtual map of tumor motion. Radiation doses were calculated to deliver ?95 percent of the planning target volume (PTV), defined as the ITV + 5mm “safety” margin. All patients received 50 Gy in five fractions delivered during one week by 7-9 highly targeted radiation beams.Early and late toxicity, as defined by the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 3.0 was measured for all patients. The overall rate of any toxicity was 13.0 percent (45), with most patients having minimal toxicities (grade 2 or less) and no grade 4 or 5 toxicity events were recorded. The most common occurrences were chest wall toxicity, 7.7 percent, and pneumonitis (inflammation of the lung tissue), 4.1 percent. The toxicity rate for the 115 lesions classified as “central” tumors, according to the RTOG 0813 definition of “within or touching the zone of the proximal bronchial tree or adjacent to mediastinal or pericardial pleura,” vs. non-central tumors (225 lesions) was 15.5 percent (18 lesions) vs. 11.7 percent (27 lesions). At five years post-treatment, local control was 79 percent vs. 75.4 percent for patients with central tumors vs. non-central tumors, respectively. The distant metastases-free and disease failure-free rates were 49.5 percent vs. 56.7 percent, and 37.3 percent vs. 34.3 percent, respectively. Overall survival was 18.3 percent vs. 20.3 percent, respectively. The failure rates of the central vs. non-central tumors utilizing all parameters had no statistically significant differences. Rates of local, lobar (within a whole lobe of the lung) and regional node failure for lesions were 11.2 percent, 4.1 percent and 13.5 percent, respectively.

May 16, 2019 624 Views Share in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Economy ESR Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Home Sales homes HOUSING 2019-05-16 Radhika Ojha The housing market is likely to see healthy growth this spring according to reports by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Home sales are also expected to surge during this time, the reports noted.According to Fannie Mae’s Economic and Strategic Research Group’s (ESR’s) May outlook, leading indicators for housing continued to suggest a “solid spring homebuying season,” with the ESR revising its forecast for the second quarter and the rest of the year upwards for housing.Echoing this sentiment, Freddie Mac kept its positive outlook on the housing industry unchanged in its May forecast citing “positive impact of low mortgage rates, a strong labor market, low unemployment, and modest wage growth,” as some of the leading factors that would leave a positive impact on the market.Fannie Mae also predicted zero rate hikes this year. “As the Fed continues to preach patience and inflation remains well below target levels, we revised our forecast in May to reflect our expectation of zero rate hikes in 2019 and 2020,” said Doug Duncan, Chief Economist at Fannie Mae.While the ESR’s outlook on the U.S. economy, on the whole, remained roughly unchanged, it pointed out to the current U.S.-China trade tensions and elevated corporate debt acting as headwinds as the year progressed.”On the heels of a strong first quarter, we upgraded our full-year 2019 forecast of real GDP growth by one-tenth to 2.3%,” Duncan said. “Prior quarter upticks in net exports and inventories may have fueled the growth, but a deeper dive into the underlying data of each suggests weakness.”Looking at housing market trends, Freddie Mac projected mortgage rates to remain in the 4.3% range for the rest of the year and expected total home sales to surpass the 2018 levels to reach 5.98 million units this year, with most of the sales coming from existing homes.”We still expect stronger home sales and housing starts in the coming months due to favorable market conditions and accelerating wage growth,” said Sam Khater, Chief Economist, Freddie Mac.Additionally, Duncan said that while residential fixed investment may have dragged on growth for the fifth consecutive quarter, “we remain optimistic that the spring homebuying season will be a productive one.Even as the ESR group revised upward its 2019 purchase and refinance mortgage origination forecasts, Freddie Mac’s quarterly refinance forecast that was a part of its May report found that cash-out refis had remained essentially unchanged.”Our quarterly report on refinance activity shows that few U.S. homeowners are choosing to tap into their largest source of wealth despite having a record $16 trillion in home equity available to them,” Khater said. Most homeowners remain reluctant to increase their mortgage balance, whereas we continue to see balance increases on auto loans, credit cards, and student loans.”Cash-out borrowers represented 76% of all refinance loans in the first quarter of 2019 down from 82% at the end of 2018.
