US NGO Congratulates Moroccan Sardine Fishery on Sustainability Progress

Rabat – The US NGO “Sustainable Fisheries Partnership” (SFP) welcomed “the extraordinary progress” of the Moroccan sardine fishery improvement project (FIP), the ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries said in a statement.The project has achieved significant increases in scores on the Marine Stewardship Council FIP benchmark tool during its two years of operation and has the highest possible “A” progress rating on the SFP Fishsource database, SFP said.”The management framework has greatly improved since the project started, with both stocks subject to a management plan, and while this aspect is still evolving, the most recent stock assessments show that Moroccan-managed stocks are generally in good shape,” said Jo Gascoigne, the FIP’s chief scientist. Among other improvements, the fishery now includes scientific observers on boats to monitor fishing practices, and efforts to put new harvest control rules in place.The Moroccan Sardine fishery has improved from an overall index of 0.59 (central zone) / 0.61 (south zone) to 0.74 (both), with a recently published stock assessment included in this score and the fishery’s assessments updated to reflect this better performance, the source noted.Founded in 2006, the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Foundation – known as Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) – is a nonprofit organization dedicated to rebuilding depleted fish stocks and reducing the environmental and social impacts of fishing and fish farming through engaging fishery stakeholders (communities, NGOs, government, etc.) and seafood businesses in every part of the supply chain.With MAP read more

Top UN envoy shocked by cowardly attack against Somali minister

27 March 2009The United Nations envoy to Somalia today strongly condemned the deadly roadside bomb blast which wounded the country’s Interior Minister and killed one of his assistants in the capital, Mogadishu. The minister, Sheikh Abdulkadir Ali Omar, was walking through bustling Bakara Market on Thursday when the landmine exploded.“I am shocked by this attack on the Interior Minister and his entourage,” said the Secretary General’s Special Representative for Somalia, Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah.“This is a cowardly act which has been widely condemned inside and outside Somalia,” he added.Aided by the UN-facilitated Djibouti Agreement, last month saw the formation of a new Government of National Unity, as well as the creation of a newly-expanded Parliament and election of President Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed in the Horn of African nation, which has been ravaged by factional conflict since the overthrow of Siad Barre in 1991.The Special Representative noted that the new administration led by President Sheikh Ahmed was working hard to improve security, raise resources and help Somalis lead a normal life.“Attacks such as these are clearly aimed at trying to stain the country’s reputation,” said Mr. Ould-Abdallah. He stressed that the new Government has the support of the majority of Somalis as well as the international community and that “the country is on the road towards peace and will not be thrown off course by these actions.” read more

Urban Meyer Kevin Wilson discuss Ohio StateIndiana game

The No. 8 Ohio State Buckeyes (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) will open divisional play this weekend when they travel to Bloomington, Ind., to face the Indiana Hoosiers (2-3, 0-2 Big Ten). First-year coach Urban Meyer doesn’t want a let down against the Hoosiers, saying OSU can’t afford to look beyond Saturday’s opponent yet. Meyer discussed his team’s upcoming match, as did Indiana coach Kevin Wilson, during Tuesday’s Big Ten Conference football coaches’ teleconference. Looking past the Hoosiers? After back-to-back wins against ranked opponents, including a 63-38 drubbing of then-No. 21 Nebraska Saturday, the Buckeyes seem to be a confident bunch. Meyer appears to be attempting to keep a lid on the confidence. Meyer said it’s important for his team to realize there is plenty of football to be played before they can be considered a great team. “These kids are 6-0 and a lot of people are telling them how good they are,” Meyer said. “Quite honestly, we have a long way to go.” It is something that, arguably, happens every year in college football. Teams can win a big game against a ranked team, ride that high all week, and then lose to an inferior opponent that they underestimate a week later. Meyer said he is not concerned with his team’s focus as it prepares for an Indiana team that has lost its last three games. “We’re not at the point that we can start overlooking anybody,” Meyer said. “I’m concerned about execution and stopping them, not overlooking them.” Nebraska win bodes well for the future Considering the number of recruits OSU hosted on Saturday, the win against the Cornhuskers could have major implications on Meyer’s program for years to come. Meyer wasn’t able to give an exact number of recruits in attendance, but said that “there were a lot” of prospective Buckeyes in the Horseshoe. Meyer also said the atmosphere in the stadium during the Buckeyes’ win left an impression of some of the nation’s elite high school prospects. “It’s a little risky sometimes to have a bunch of recruits come in on a big game, because if you fail and you lose, it’s miserable,” Meyer said. “The atmosphere was tremendous. The way we won in the second half, that was very critical for recruiting.” Miller a Heisman hopeful? As one of college football’s leaders in rushing yards per game, and the quarterback of the Big Ten’s only unbeaten team, sophomore Braxton Miller, is gaining hype as a Heisman Trophy contender. “He’s one of the best players in the college game,” Wilson said. Wilson did say that, “there are better players out there,” but pointed out that the sophomore quarterback will only improve as he grows into Meyer’s system. “He’s young,” Wilson said. “Knowing a little bit about him, and knowing the coach that he’s got, he will get better and better. You’re not seeing the best of him.” A key component in winning the Heisman Trophy is having big games on big stages against ranked opponents. Miller might have done that last Saturday, rushing for a career-high 186 yards and scoring two touchdowns in a win against Nebraska. Nebraska coach Bo Pelini, however, was not willing to anoint Miller as a favorite for college football’s most prestigious individual award. “That’s up to you guys,” Pelini said. Award winners The Buckeyes’ Saturday win has resulted in national accolades for several players on the team. For his five tackles-for-loss in the win against the Cornhuskers, senior defensive end John Simon has received three national awards including the Chuck Bednarik Award’s national player of the week award on Tuesday. Simon received the Lott IMPACT player of the week award, as well as College Football Performance defensive player of the week award, on Monday. Miller, who rushed for an OSU quarterback record 186 yards and a touchdown, was honored with the Davey O’Brien quarterback of the week award. After rushing for 140 yards and four touchdowns on 28 carries against Nebraska, junior running back Carlos Hyde was named the Big Ten’s co-offensive player of the week. Thanks to a 76-yard punt return in the third quarter against the Cornhuskers, junior wide receiver Corey Brown was named the Big Ten’s special teams player of the week.

DEUTZ approves latest generation TCD engine range for alternative fuels

first_imgDEUTZ has approved the latest generation of its entire TCD engine range for operation with alternative fuels. This will make a further significant reduction to the carbon footprint of combustion engines and even raises the prospect of running such engines on a carbon-neutral basis. For DEUTZ, this represents the next logical step in its efforts to develop sustainable and efficient drive systems. In combination with the electrification of its engine portfolio under the E-DEUTZ strategy, DEUTZ aims for the market leadership in the field of innovative drivetrains.DEUTZ states: “Sole use of electric motors is already a viable option in the low power output range, but for medium- and heavy-duty applications, for example involving construction equipment or tractors, there is as yet no suitable replacement for the combustion engine as the primary source of power. While electrification can improve efficiency as part of a hybrid system and allows for a downsizing of the combustion engine, there is still considerable potential for improving the eco-friendliness of conventional engines by choosing different fuels.”DEUTZ has now approved the engine series TCD 2.9 / 3.6 / 4.1 / 6.1 / 7.8 / 12.0 / 16.0 under the current EU Stage IV/US Tier 4 standard, as well as all older DEUTZ engines without exhaust aftertreatment, for operation with paraffinic diesel fuels and biodiesel or biodiesel blends. The term paraffinic diesel fuel encompasses a wide range of products.HVOs (hydrogenated vegetable oils), in particular, are currently being produced on a commercial scale from sustainable plant oils and waste fats. In the future, ‘e-fuels’ will also become part of the mix that will enable engines to operate on an eco-friendly, carbon-neutral basis using renewable energy. The underlying principle is that in the production process the same amount of CO2 is taken out as is emitted by the combustion process. “Because of its chemical composition, synthetic diesel fuel produced by this method can be mixed and used with fossil-based diesel in any ratio. ‘E-fuels’ and the E-DEUTZ strategy are a perfect fit. DEUTZ is driving forward both technologies with the aim of minimising its carbon footprint.”The idea behind using biodiesel is also to cut CO2 emissions. In Europe, biodiesel is primarily based on sustainably and locally produced vegetable oils and waste fats. The approval covers 100% biodiesel for EU Stage IV as well as biodiesel blends, i.e. blended fuels containing biodiesel, for EU Stage IV and US Tier 4 engines. End customers utilising alternative fuels benefit not only from the knowledge that they are helping the environment but also from tax advantages, which vary from region to region.“For us as an engine manufacturer, alternative fuels are a key component in our innovative drive system mix,” explains Dr Markus Schwaderlapp, Head of Research and Development at DEUTZ AG. “We believe that e-fuels offer a lot of potential for running combustion engines on a carbon-neutral basis. We are therefore looking to combine the benefits of combustion engines – robustness, mobility and flexibility – with those offered by electric drives.”last_img read more

Bits Pieces Man to begin yearlong 12000mile bike trip

first_imgDavid Jones is getting ready to roll. And everyone is invited to see him off.At 10 a.m. Saturday, Jones will begin a 12,000-mile, clockwise bicycle journey around the edges of the nation. He’ll depart from homeless shelter Share House, 1115 E. 13th St., in downtown Vancouver.That’s because Share, Vancouver’s chief provider of services and shelter to the hungry and homeless, is the point of his journey. Jones, a former Share board member, means to raise money for the cause as he pedals. You can help by visiting his website, Rolling Across America, where it’s possible to donate to Share as well as toward Jones’ own expenses. Or just visit Share.Those expenses include video equipment — because Jones plans to conduct interviews and post them online. “I want to reveal in a very personal way what Americans think and feel about their country,” he says on his website. “I’ll be conducting interviews over these 12,000 miles and asking questions about each individual’s American experience, what they think and feel. And what are their challenges and solutions.” He’s even recruited Lisa Cicala, a Portland filmmaker and vice president of the Oregon Media Production Association, to rework his video footage into a feature documentary film.Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt will stop by Share House to wish Jones luck. Members of the Vancouver Bicycle Club and the Share board of directors will join Jones for the first few miles as he heads out of town — across the I-5 bridge and east along Marine Drive. Day one’s target: Government Camp. After that, he figures, there’ll just be a year to go.— Scott HewittBits ’n’ Pieces appears Fridays and Saturdays.

Jayne Another Reagan Todays GOP wouldnt welcome him

first_imgIt always is inspiring.As the seat of American government and the embodiment of the American Dream and the cauldron of so much of our nation’s history, Washington, D.C., always is inspiring. So, as we recently took a family vacation to the nation’s capital, I was confident that I would be struck by a column idea along the way. I just didn’t expect it to come from our tour guide at the Capitol building.“We get calls all the time from people saying, ‘Why can’t we have another Ronald Reagan?’ ” said the young woman, an intern from the office of Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Camas. “Some people just want to vent, but they wonder why we can’t have another Reagan.”This, I suppose, is predictable. For three decades now, Reagan has been viewed as the pinnacle of modern conservatism, as the model for the Republican Party, as the man who made it morning again in America. He was the first president of my adult life, winning re-election in 1984 by capturing 49 states and 59 percent of the popular vote.And while I can understand how Reagan is lionized by the right, I can’t help but notice that many modern Republicans have distorted and bastardized his legacy to suit their own desires.As political activist Mark McKinnon said: “Ronald Reagan was long thought to be the most conservative of Republicans. And by any standard today he is the most popular Republican in modern history. Yet he raised taxes 11 times, supported a ban on assault rifles and the Brady Bill, which mandated background checks, and established amnesty for 3 million undocumented workers.”last_img read more

Airbus RollsRoyce Siemens Team Up For HybridElectric Aircraft

first_img Ford Debuts Plug-In Hybrid Cop CarYou Can’t Get BMW’s New Wireless Charging Pad in the US Gas-electric hybrid cars date back as far as 1889. But it might be 2020 before we see the same technology take to the skies.Airbus, Rolls-Royce, and Siemens have partnered to develop a near-term flight demonstrator, expected to fly in three years.Following a “comprehensive ground test campaign,” the new E-Fan X demonstrator will provisionally operate on a BAe 146 flying testbed, with one of the aircraft’s four gas turbine engines replaced by a two-megawatt electric motor.A second engine will be swapped out once the technology has further evolved.“The E-Fan X is an important next step in our goal of making electric flight a reality in the foreseeable future,” Airbus CTO Paul Eremenko said in a statement.The program aims to mature hybrid electric technology, performance, safety, and reliability for use in commercial aircraft.If it also helps to establish requirements for future certification of electrically powered planes while training a new generation of designers and engineers, that’s great.The E-Fan X marks a significant step forward in hybrid-electric propulsion for commercial aircraft (via Airbus)“The lessons we learned from a long history of electric flight demonstrators … will pave the way to a hybrid single-aisle commercial aircraft that is safe, efficient, and cost-effective,” Eremenko said.Each firm will play its part—be it administering orders or delivering motors—in this joint effort to meet the environmental goals set out in the European Commission’s Flightpath 2050 Vision for Aviation. That is, a 75 percent reduction of CO2, 90 percent reduction of NOx, and 65 percent reduction in noise within three decades.And, according to Airbus, electric and hybrid-electric propulsion is the best way to address these challenges.“The E-Fan X enables us to build on our wealth of electrical expertise to revolutionize flight and welcome in the third generation of aviation,” Rolls-Royce CTO Paul Stein said.“This is an exciting time for us as this technological advancement will result in Rolls-Royce creating the world’s most powerful flying generator,” he added.Boeing and AgustaWestland are also on board with hybrid electric engine technology for aircrafts; the DA36 E-Star designed by Siemens, Diamond Aircraft, and EADS already employs an electric motor. But this project is among the first to consider mass commercial flight (rather than limited-occupancy planes).

Signin to Windows 10 with passwordless accounts

first_imgSign-in to Windows 10 with password-less accounts by Martin Brinkmann on December 21, 2018 in Windows – 18 commentsMicrosoft introduced an option in the most recent Windows 10 Home Insider Build to sign-in to Windows with password-less accounts.Today, we’re announcing support for setting up and signing in to Windows with a phone number account, without having to create, or deal with the hassle of a password!Passwords are certainly one of the Achilles Heels of account security; a recent study of leaked passwords in 2018 showed that Internet users still use pretty much the same insecure passwords that they used five years ago.Weak passwords are not only the user’s fault; companies shy away from imposing too restrictive password setting rules.Users who sign up for a Microsoft Account need to assign a password to it. While it is theoretically possible to create a local Windows account without a password and even configure Windows for automatic login, all Windows accounts that are Microsoft Accounts require a password as well; this may change with Windows 10 version 1903 as Microsoft introduced a new option to recent Insider Builds.Password Less sign-inOne option that Windows 10 users have in the future is to sign-in to Windows using different means. Authentication is still required considering that it identifies whether the user is authorized to sign-in.Instead of using a password to set up an account on a Windows device, users may create an account using a mobile phone if they have linked it to a Microsoft Account.Windows would send a SMS code to the linked device which the user would then use to sign-in and create the account. The user would then have to use another sign-in method to access the account going forward.Microsoft notes that the user may use Facial, Fingerprint, or PIN identification to sign-in to the account.The process may take away the need to set up an account password but it does not do away with the authentication process itself. Depending on the device, all that is available is PIN authentication.Windows 10 users may assign a PIN to an account to sign-in to the account; a PIN may even be a requirement if you create a new account on a Windows 10 device.Right now, it is necessary to create a password-less phone number account in a mobile application such as Word. Users just need to type the phone number and follow instructions to create such an account.On Windows 10, users would have to add the account under Settings > Accounts > Family & other Users > Add someone else to this PC to add the “new” account to the device.The phone number account should be selectable during sign-in or user switching at this point in time. The user would have to select “sign-in options” and there Sign-in on the PIN tile. This launches the Windows Hello setup to set up one of the required authentication options for the account.Closing WordsSetup is not straightforward at this point in time; some might say it is complicated. A regular account is required at this point in time to set up Windows on a device. Consecutive accounts can be password-less provided that the user has a mobile device and linked it to a Microsoft Account.The user would still have to remember a PIN and use it to sign in if Face or Fingerprint authentication is not available on the device.It remains to be seen if the process is optimized in future builds.Now You: What is your take on password-less sign-ins?SummaryArticle NameSign-in to Windows 10 with password-less accountsDescriptionMicrosoft introduced an option in the most recent Windows 10 Home Insider Build to sign-in to Windows with password-less accounts.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in tweets from an account associated with the group.Afghanistan’s eastern provinces long have harbored insurgent groups, including the Taliban and the brutal Haqqani network, who wage attacks on police checkpoints, plant roadside bombs and target government installations.The Taliban launched their annual spring offensive in late April with a huge assault on the northern city of Kunduz, taking authorities by surprise. Mass kidnappings appear to be a new strategy.Also on Saturday, in northern Sari Pul province, four policemen were killed when their vehicle hit a roadside bomb, according to Gen.

Former TARP Execs Charged in Massive Bank Fraud

first_img Bank Failure Freddie Mac Mortgage Fraud SIGTARP TARP 2014-04-14 Colin Robins April 14, 2014 470 Views in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News Former TARP Execs Charged in ‘Massive’ Bank Fraudcenter_img The office of the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (SIGTARP) announced that four men—Sean Cutting, Brian Melland, Bijan Madjlessi, David Lonich—have been indicted on federal charges of conspiracy, bank fraud, wire fraud, money laundering, false statements to a bank, false bank entries, and obstruction of justice.Cutting was the former president and CEO of TARP-recipient Sonoma Valley Bank. Melland served as a SVP and chief lending officer at the bank. Madjlessi is a real estate developer, and Lonich an attorney for Madjlessi.According to an indictment by a federal jury, Madjlessi is alleged to have defaulted on a loan of more than $30 million relating to a real estate project known as Park Lane Villas East in Santa Rosa, California. Working with the other three, Madjlessi allegedly obtained a loan from Sonoma Valley Bank to purchase his own defaulted loan on the premise that the nominee was the actual borrower, when in fact Madjlessi and Lonich were the real borrowers.”According to the Indictment, Cutting and Melland failed to disclose their knowledge of the true identities of the borrowers to Sonoma Valley Bank and took steps to authorize the loan. Madjlessi’s nominee successfully obtained the loan from Sonoma Valley Bank and purchased the defaulted loan from a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation contractor,” SIGTARP said.Madjlessi and Lonich then settled litigation related to the property, obtaining the title to Park Lane Villas East. The two obtained refinancing on the property through Freddie Mac, but not before Sonoma Valley Bank failed in August 2010. The bank had received more than $8.65 million from TARP.”The two TARP bank executives, Cutting and Melland, are alleged to have skirted the bank’s internal controls and defrauded Sonoma Valley Bank by authorizing the bank to lend $9.5 million to a straw purchaser so that the funds could be used by real estate developer Madjlessi to repurchase part of the same condominium project for which Madjlessi had already defaulted on a construction loan,” said Christy Romero, Special Inspector General for TARP.She continued, “In order to help Madjlessi regain control of residential units in the project that had already been sold and to obtain financing from Freddie Mac, TARP bank CEO Cutting is alleged to have produced letters, on Sonoma Valley Bank letterhead, falsely stating that straw buyers had sufficient funds at the bank to purchase the units.”All four defendants were arrested on April 9 and released on a $250,000 bond. The next scheduled hearing is on April 18, 2014. Sharelast_img read more
