Famous Football Players Who Converted to Islam

Rabat – Togolese football star, Emmanuel Adebayor, converted to Islam over the weekend, making headlines worldwide. His conversion brings to mind dozens of famous football players who have converted to Islam from a different religion or from no religion.The list of famous football players around the globe who have decided to convert to Islam during the early or later years of their lives is long. Here are some of the most interesting.Franck Ribery and Eric Abidal Franck RiberyFrench internationals players Franck Ribery and Eric Abidal are the “poster children” of famous Muslim converts among football players.In 2002, Bayern Munich’s midfielder Franck Ribery took the Shahada (the declaration of faith affirming the oneness of God and the acceptance of Muhammad as His prophet) and changed his name to Bilal.Ribery said in statement that his wife Wahiba Belhami, who is of Algerian origin, was the main reason behind his conversion.Eric AbidalAnother woman of Algerian origin was also behind FC Barcelona former defender Eric Abidal’s conversion from Catholicism to Islam.Born in Lyon, France, on September 11, 1979 to immigrant parents from Africa, Eric Abidal embraced Islam and changed his name to Bilal Eric Abidal so he could marry the Algerian-born Hayet Abidal.Nicolas AnelkaNicolas AnelkaUnlike his fellow French national team member Franck Ribery, whose conversion to Islam was public and who always prays before matches, France’s Nicolas Anelka kept his religious beliefs private, and in fact hid his conversion from the public for years.Anelka, the former striker of some of the biggest clubs in Europe such as Real Madrid, Juventus, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Liverpool, was sixteen when he converted to Islam. But he only announced his conversion in 2004 in UAE, and adopted the name Abdul-Salam Bilal.Thierry Henry and Van PersieThierry HenryWhile Franck Ribery and Eric Abidal are well known for being Muslim converts, many fans may be unfamiliar with other football players who converted to Islam, such as Thierry Henry and Robin Van Persie.French football player and Arsenal’s legend striker, Thierry Henry, announced his conversion to Islam in December 2008 on the former Aljazeera Sports Channel, now beIN sports.Henry told the Qatar-based channel that his Muslim mates in the national club, Franck Ribery and Eric Abidal, had played a significant role in his conversion.Robin van PersieBorn on August 6, 1983, Dutch player Robin van Persie is said to have converted to Islam after meeting Bouchra Van Persie, born Bouchra Elbali, who is of Moroccan origin. The Dutch footballer, who plays for the Netherlands national football team and Manchester United, has never talked about his religion, but reports say he is a non-practicing Muslim.Reporting by Aziz Allilou© Morocco World News.

Moroccan Parliamentary Elections at a Crossroads

Kenitra – The 16 million Moroccans who have registered to vote are electing the 395-member Chamber of Representatives in 95 electoral districts, with the Islamic Justice and Development Party (PJD) and the Party of Authenticity and Modernity (PAM) eyeing the lead to form a new government amid huge debates over health, education, employment and security.Friday’s legislative elections will define the political map for Morocco and mark a turning point in Moroccan democracy five years after adopting the new constitutional reforms following a national referendum which stripped the king of some of his political powers and strengthened the authority of the country’s prime minister, including the right to appoint government officials previously held by the king. The voting is under way and the initial turnouts from the polls are indicating to a less-than-expected rate of voting. Early this morning, a Moroccan Interior Ministry official announced that the national turnout was about 10 percent as of midday. Though, voters are expected to show up at voting posts in big numbers after Friday prayers and working hours.“People have lost confidence in Moroccan politics and Moroccan politicians. This is why I didn’t register to vote. I don’t think I will do so in the future either unless serious changes are made” a youth told Morocco World News this morning in the city of Kenitra. “I don’t think the turnout will be high today. All of the Moroccan parties have been tested before and nothing has changed. All of them have failed to translate their promises during elections into real or true achievements once they step into parliament”, another woman said. In a short interview with Morocco World News, Pr. Yahya El Yahyaoui said: ” I have no position on the elections. It is a right and a duty. This doesn’t mean that election boycott is something bad. People are free to choose not to vote. It is their right.” When asked how he would define the outcomes of these parliamentary elections, Pr. El Yahyaoui held to the idea that “the expectations are quite normal and usual” suggesting that “the Islamic Justice and Development Party will have a tiny advantage over PAM. No decisive victory, I mean. Say: few more seats. That is it. No absolute majority. This will make it impossible for the PJD to form a government and will force it to work with other parties to form a coalition government. May be with the PAM itself. Who knows?”In this election, Moroccan voters are heading to polls to pick their representatives in the lower house of parliament from more-than-30-political-party- candidates entering the competition with high expectations that the main battle will be contested between the ruling Islamist Justice and Development Party and their opponents leading the opposition Authenticity and Modernity Party. The Istiqlal Party along with the major parties of Popular Movement, Party of Progress and Socialism, National Rally of Independents more recently have been receiving attention among younger sections of society and the middle class, whilst the party of Federation of Democratic Left are also projected to gain some seats in this election.In a recent interview with BBC Arabic, the head of government, Abdelilah Benkirane, has defended the accomplishments of his five-year term and prided himself and his party on running a clean campaign eyeing a new victory despite what the PJD and many observers proclaim a platitude of their components political oratories and the aggressive attacks its policies receive from many news outlets, social media platforms and activists blogs and also from local authorities. Today, Benkirane casted his vote in Moaadh Benjalaal Grade School in Rabat and said that his party “ran an “integrity-filled” campaign and await election results the next day.”Meanwhile, Ilyas El-Omary, Secretary General of the Party of Authenticity and Modernity leading the parliamentary opposition and a close friend to Fouad Ali El-Himma -the life-long friend and royal advisor of King Mohammed VI, said in an interview with Associated Press on October, 2, 2016 that “according to our internal polls, we are expecting to lead the election results among the opposition parties” whilst he accused the Party of Justice and Development of “political and economic failures” , “recent sex scandals”, and “the responsibility for allowing the radicalization of Moroccan youth, especially in his northern region of Tangiers-Tetouan-Al-Hoceima.”As the tension grows between the two figures leading the two major parties PJD and PAM competing in these elections, the Moroccan political activist and the Secretary General of the United Socialist Party, Pr. Nabila Mounib is expected to win few seats for its own three-party coalition FGD. She is a new face on the ballot today because of her academic political oratory and her defense of true constitutional reforms. On September 30th, Mounib told CNN the constitution of 2011 “didn’t go far enough to enshrine democratic values in Morocco”. She added: “It did not outline a clear separation of powers, it did not truly stipulate the characteristics of the parliamentary monarchy, and it did not link responsibility to accountability.”Early this afternoon, Mohammed Amahrour; a professor of philosophy and a locally active member of the United Socialist Party in Kenitra told Morocco World News: “We have hope that Nabila Mounib, along with other members of the party, can make changes in parliament. We hope they will be able to effect real changes for the benefit Moroccan people. I think our main objective now is to empower the current trend of her political socialist discourse and gain confidence again in the Left movement in general. read more

Morocco 2026 Guinea and Lebanon Voted Against Morocco Deliberately

Rabat – Lebanon and Guinea’s claims about FIFA’s electronic voting system have not convinced Morocco’s 2026 World Cup Committee. According to Morocco 2026, the countries deliberately voted against its bid on Wednesday’s vote in Moscow.A source within the Moroccan committee told Morocco’s sports news outlet Hesport that statements from Guinea and Lebanon denying they voted for the North American bid are attempts to cover up their change of heart at the last minute.“We were surprised by Guinea and Lebanon in the list of voters for the [North] American file after they promised to vote for us … we realize that there is no mistake, and they chose to let us down at the last moment after succumbing to the pressures of Americans and Saudi Arabia,” said the source. The anonymous  member of the committee added that Morocco “has refused” the apology from the two football federations “because the vote for the [North] American file was not made by mistake.” They said the justification “was not convincing at all.”The source added that the voting procedure was simple and easy, and both football federations have not filed a complaint to FIFA about the voting system.“The pressure was terrible before the vote and the  hours before the voting date saw high level collusion, so we can understand the position of those who disappointed us.”After the vote on June 13, the Lebanese and Guinan football federations claimed that they had not voted for the North American bid, United 2026.President of the Guinean Football Federation Antonio Souaré blamed the electronic voting system.Secretary General of the Lebanon Football Association Jihad El Shahf told Football Lebanon that his country voted for Morocco’s bid.Saudi Arabia launched a last-minute campaign  on June 11 and 12, pressuring countries to vote for United 2026.On Wednesday, several Arab and African countries voted for United 2026, including Kuwait, Bahrain, Namibia, South Africa, and Liberia.Morocco’s bid received 65 votes, while the joint bid of North America received a majority of 134. read more

Thousands of Iraqi children will die unless they are made top priority

Thousands of Iraqi youngsters will die and hundreds of thousands more will be injured, fall prey to disease, suffer abuse and exploitation or fall behind in school, unless all involved in shaping the post-war future make the battle to protect children the number one priority, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) warned today.“The war may be over but the work is far from done,” UNICEF Executive Director Carol Bellamy said in a message issued a day after some of the agency’s international staff returned to work in Baghdad for the first time in more than six weeks. “Children are still dying, and they’re still at grave risk. Let’s make protecting children as comprehensive and urgent an objective as ending the war was.”Outlining the dangers confronting Iraqi children, UNICEF cited insecurity stopping aid from reaching needy communities; degradation of the water system with widespread health hazards like diarrhoea, cholera and other killer diseases; unexploded munitions with daily reports of injuries and deaths; enormous stress on hospitals, including insufficient medical supplies; insufficient emphasis on opening schools, leaving children on the streets exposed to hazards; and ongoing malnutrition with more than a quarter of all children under age five already malnourished.“We’re calling on both Iraqis and the parties shaping Iraqi society to make the protection of children job number one,” Ms. Bellamy said. “Iraq’s future depends on the health and well-being of its children. At the moment, we are failing them. They should be our first priority – not only in words but in action. And frankly, I’m not seeing nearly enough action for children.”Stressing the overriding importance of schools, she added: “Nothing will do more to immediately improve the well-being and protection of Iraq’s children than getting them back in the classroom. Classrooms give children a positive focus, they allow the sharing of vital information, they keep children off the streets, they protect them from exploitation, they relieve parents and help them focus on their own recovery.“For UNICEF, there is no more obvious and urgent priority than getting learning underway as widely and as quickly as possible,” she added. Returning to Baghdad yesterday, UNICEF’s Iraq representative Carel de Rooy paid tribute to the 200-strong national staff who carried on throughout the war despite enormous difficulties. “These people worked throughout the conflict to maintain water systems and deliver humanitarian supplies,” he said. “They did this despite fears for their own safety, and we at UNICEF applaud them for their courage and dedication.”The World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that despite the damage done to the Iraqi health system by years of under-investment, economic sanctions and most acutely by weeks of conflict and looting, a mere $20 million a month was all that was needed to “jump start” hospitals and health centres across the country.The idea behind the plan is to build on existing facilities and their highly committed staffs, WHO said. In the first place, that means making sure the very basics are in place – that floors are cleaned, patients fed and waste removed; that staff are given a daily allowance until a system is worked out to pay their salaries; that basic maintenance work can be done, generators can operate and the most essential medicines can be supplied.The cost of not making this monthly investment could be much greater, the agency added. Without basic cleaning and maintenance, disease outbreaks are almost certain; without food, patients cannot recover; and without an allowance to enable them to feed themselves and their families, health workers and other hospital staff will have to look for work elsewhere.”In the past days and weeks, we have seen the commitment of Iraqi health workers to public health. They have continued to work under some very difficult conditions,” WHO Director General Gro Harlem Brundtland said. “Now we must ensure that their dedication and bravery is not wasted. Iraq’s health system must not collapse for want of finance and support.”On their first full day back in Baghdad, the UN international team led by the Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq, Ramiro Lopes da Silva, continued meetings with their national staff and representatives of non-governmental organizations in an effort to increase UN activities in the capital. read more

Best laptops for college students The MacBook is just the start

first_imgPicking the best laptop for college can make all the difference. Take a look at some of our favorites, and why you may consider picking one up for your next semester.Most individual computing tasks don’t require a specific operating system or brand anymore. With many tasks becoming browser-based and the line between Windows and OS X becoming less relevant every day, the lines in the sand about what computer you should take to school have been significantly diminished. Instead, the challenge in deciding what laptop would serve you best now depends more on hardware. Battery life, whether or not you need touch, and screen size and quality now have a much greater influence in the decision. With that in mind, we’ve put together a quick list of which laptops would be best for your day-to-day needs based on those categories. (Note: we didn’t factor in specific school requirements, these are the general, all-around best laptops for college students that we could think of.)The secret weapon: Chrome OSMaybe you’ve got a powerful desktop that you built yourself, and so don’t need a laptop to handle every single task in your world. Maybe your school is super cool and lets you write everything in Google Drive instead of requiring Microsoft Office, so you can use a browser-based OS that lets you move every aspect of your schoolwork to the cloud. Or maybe you’re just not attached to any one particular OS, and do everything in the browser already anyway. Chrome OS is a good all-around idea for school, as most of the hardware running this lightweight OS can be picked up for about $300.Chrome OS puts everything in the browser, so as long as you’re connected to the internet you’ve got access to the same web experience found on any other computer. The advantage here is the inexpensive parts used to drive most of these laptops. While you could go all out and drop $1500 on the Chromebook Pixel, the most common versions of Chrome OS hardware exist in the much cheaper Samsung and Acer Chromebooks. These cheaper experiences offer 6-8 hours of battery life and are quite light. You also never have to worry about anything happening to your data of your Chrome OS laptop gets in an accident, which could be the most important feature for the forgetful student.Today the best-selling Chromebook is Samsung’s 11.6-inchExynos 5000-powered system ($249) and the Acer C7, while the newest, best performing models should be the new Haswell systems. These Chromebooks, which were just announced last week, include the Acer Chromebook and the HP Chromebook14. More details on them should be available soon.The standard: Windows ultrabooks and convertiblesWindows has, and for a long time will likely remain, an OS with many different kinds of hardware. Right now in particular, with Microsoft shaking things up a bit through Windows 8, there’s a lot of different kinds of hardware to choose from when it comes to picking a Windows machine. Sorting through all of these odd looking machines in search for a winner can be a challenge unless you know exactly what you’re looking for. For most people, it comes down to battery life and the weight of the device itself.Intel’s massive push into what they call “ultrabooks” has created a surplus of thin and light laptops that are perfect for school. Unfortunately the thinner you make a computer the more you sacrifice, and a lot of the early Ultrabooks took a hit when it came to battery life or screen quality. Fortunately, we now live in the wonderful world of Haswell, and those problems are slowly going away. Ultrabooks with a Haswell-based Intel processor are going to offer much better battery life than their predecessors, and still be able to deliver a great computing experience. Currently the Asus Zenbook UX 301 and 302 ultrabooks are some of the best on the shelf, offering a high quality display and a great overall experience.The addition of touch is one of the most interesting changes to Windows 8. The ability to reach right out and touch your screen feels a lot more natural now in such a smartphone saturated world, and the latest version of Windows really gives you a reason to consider making it your default input mechanism. There are some laptops that now focus directly on touch, with the added flexibility of using them as a traditional laptop if you need to. These machines are commonly known as “ultrabook convertibles”, because they either are able to bend all the way back on themselves (to use as a tablet) or the screen can detach from the keyboard to use as a tablet. Many of these machines come with a Wacom stylus, which when combined with the handwriting recognition of Windows 8 turns them into fantastic note taking machines. Chief among these machines is the Lenovo Yoga 2, a Haswell-powered convertible ultrabook, that can fold back on itself as well as function as a regular laptop.The student’s choice: MacbooksOf course if you’d rather avoid confusing version names and really have no love of touch on your laptop yet, you could just get a Macbook. Apple’s laptop line is very straightforward, and there’s some clear benefits and drawbacks to each of their models for students.If you’re looking for battery life, you couldn’t ask for much better than the 2013 Macbook Air. This incredibly thin machine will get you through a whole day of classes without needing to bring out the power cable, and it’s light enough that you can sling it in your backpack when you’re rushing out the door with no problems. The display on this Air is the lowest quality of all the Macbooks as a trade-off, but it’s decent enough to get things done.The Retina Macbook Pro is a great all-around machine, striking a decent balance between display quality and battery performance. You won’t get a whole day out of either the 13-inch or 15-inch version of this laptop, but the display is one of the best in current generation laptops. It’s heavier than the Macbook Air, and nearly twice as thick, but in exchange you get the ability to add more RAM, more storage options, and an overall more powerful computer. If you’re looking for one machine to handle all of your needs, including maybe a little casual gaming, this could easily be the machine for you. The 13-inch MacBook Pro is a top pick for college students because of its excellent cross of price, performance, battery life, features, and support.The best laptop for your studentPicking the best computer for college is a as simple as knowing what all the best options are, and what kind of user you are buying for. Your portable computer needs could be minimal, or you could want to make your laptop the only computer you need. You may be interested in touch, or you may just want the longest battery life you can get without sacrificing too much else. Either way, there’s at least one great option out there for you.last_img read more

43 of employers say the living wage improves morale and productivity

first_imgJust under half (43%) of employer respondents have found that paying the voluntary living wage improves employee morale and productivity, according to research by Middlesex University London and the University of Liverpool.The Putting the living wage to work study, which surveyed 250 small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), also found that 72% of respondents saw a positive effect on the organisation’s brand reputation after introducing the living wage, which currently stands at £9.40 an hour in London and £8.25 an hour for the rest of the UK.The research also found:60% of respondents saw a positive effect on manager and employee relations.77% of respondents pay the voluntary living wage because it aligns with their organisation’s values.40% of respondents have found that paying the living wage to staff does not add more than 10% to their wage bill, although 15% of respondents disagree.Dr Andrea Werner, co-author of the research at Middlesex University, said: “Our research shows that small businesses can afford to pay the living wage. It can be done and the benefits make economic sense.“Respondents who took part in our study told us how much they benefitted from paying the living wage in terms of brand reputation, employee retention and increased staff productivity and motivation. It’s a definite win for these businesses.”last_img read more

XMen Dark Phoenix review Jean Grey rises in uneven last mutant blast

first_imgSetting the new movie X-Men: Dark Phoenix in 1992 is a bold move. In real life, this was when the X-Men reigned as the most popular superhero team on the planet. The first issue of the revamped X-Men comic sold over 8 million copies — the top-selling single issue of all time — and the animated series brought the mutant adventures to an even wider audience. X-Men: Dark Phoenix is the 12th big-screen outing for the X-Men. It’s also the series’ second shot at adapting the classic Dark Phoenix storyline from the comics, after 2006’s abysmal X-Men: The Last Stand made a mess of it. So there’s a lot riding on first-time director Simon Kinberg as he tells the tale of psychic superhero Jean Grey, played this time by Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner. X-Men: Dark Phoenix rises in the UK on June 5, then burns its way to Australia on June 6 and the US on June 7. Mutants deal with fiery threats in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. 20th Century Fox In the 1992 of the movie, art imitates life as we find the X-Men are superstars — an odd contrast to the mutants’ usual “hated and feared” status quo. It’s not all rosy though. Rubbing shoulders with presidents, X-Men founder Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) is letting his newfound popularity go to his shiny head. To kick things off, Xavier sends his superteam on a rescue mission in space, giving us a thrilling action sequence where our heroes’ personalities and powers shine through. Jean, however, gets infected with cosmic energy after a close encounter with a solar flare. Summer movie preview: Aladdin, Spider-Man, Tarantino and more Final X-Men: Dark Phoenix trailer TV and Movies Comics It’s a pity the movie doesn’t lean into its ’90s setting like Captain Marvel or take the time to have a little more fun the way Avengers: Endgame did. Hans Zimmer’s enthralling score mixes synths and classical elements for a little retro sci-fi flavor, while clever references to the past 19 years of X-movies and a subtle nod to the Marvel Cinematic Universe will delight eagle-eyed fans. But Dark Phoenix is a pretty intense film throughout. It focuses on Jean Grey’s weighty journey from wide-eyed adventurer to fiery destroyer — and does so more convincingly than Game of Thrones did with a certain character in its final season. Now that Disney has bought Fox, Dark Phoenix may be the last X-Men movie in this series. Regardless of whether or when Disney decides to raise this superteam from the ashes, Dark Phoenix at least ends this era of Marvel’s merry mutants with a bang. Originally published June 4.

The rift between Xavier and team leader Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) isn’t entirely convincing. The opening doesn’t drive enough of a wedge between them, so the tension feels unearned. Lawrence’s slightly bored performance doesn’t help matters either.Thankfully, the movie finds its groove when Jean’s cosmically enhanced powers and revelations about her past create havoc for the team. Turner brings Jean on a fascinating emotional journey, infusing her with vulnerability, power and an increasing aura of danger. The fiery Phoenix effect around her eyes is pretty cool too. Her inner conflict is mirrored by that of Xavier, whose unethical use of his telepathic powers catches up to him, and that of the once-militant Magneto (Michael Fassbender), who has found peace in the years since the weak X-Men: Apocalypse. The scenes Jean shares with these two are pretty electric. Kinberg wisely keeps her struggle the emotional focus, so each encounter has a distinct sense of drama and conflict. There’s also clever use of shadow on Jean and Magneto as the camera jumps back and forth between them, hinting at the sins they’ve committed and the destruction each could bring upon the world (even though Jean is way more powerful). df-10689-r2-crop-jpegJessica Chastain’s character tempts an unstable Jean. 20th Century Fox The other major force lurking in the shadows is a new threat (Jessica Chastain) who’s trying to manipulate Jean for her own mysterious ends. Casting Chastain was an inspired choice; her natural gravitas and charisma makes an underdeveloped character feel like a primal threat. With these four characters dominating the movie, the rest of the team feels short-changed. Beast (Nicholas Hoult) has the most engaging secondary arc as he reacts to Xavier’s hubris. But Cyclops, Storm, Nightcrawler, Quicksilver and Magneto’s forgettable hench mutants don’t get much to do beyond using their abilities to back up the leads. Comments 21 Photos 2:03 X-Men: Dark Phoenix: A Jean Grey history lesson Share your voice Luckily, there are enough exciting action sequences to showcase those cool powers, including an incendiary third act that will have you emotionally invested all the way. Characters’ shifting alliances keep you guessing — the morally ambiguous Magneto always feels like a tantalizing wildcard thanks to Fassbender’s electric performance. And the shifting locations from the city streets to a speeding train mean you’ll never get bored. It all builds smoothly to an epic but personal crescendo.

This new laptop accessory is freaking brilliant and on sale for just

first_img Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. Share your voice Laptops Mobile Accessories Comments The Moft stand can be set at two different heights, but it folds completely flat when you’re done working. Moft I love things that solve problems, then get the heck out of the way. The problem: Working on a laptop forces you to hunch over, which can lead to neck and shoulder pain. That’s because the screen isn’t positioned up near eye level where it belongs.The solve: The Moft, an adhesive laptop stand that folds completely flat when not in use — meaning it’s there when you need it and virtually invisible when you don’t. Genius!It sells for $25 at Amazon, but for a limited time, Cheapskate readers can get the Moft laptop stand for just $17 with promo code CHEAPMOFT15. The catch? Delivery will take one to two weeks.See it at ZDNet AcademyThe 3mm-thick Moft is a breeze to apply: Just peel and stick. However, it’s not recommended for laptops that have vents right near the hinge, as you want to stick it as close to the hinge as possible.My Asus, alas, has narrow vents right near the hinge, so I stuck the Moft just below them. It works fine, but when I position the stand for the tallest of its two possible heights, the laptop tips unless I angle the screen just so.The stand is designed for laptops up to 15.6 inches, and it can hold up to 18 pounds — which makes me think you could use it with even larger models as well. But my aforementioned Asus is a 13.3-inch laptop, and the flattened stand covers a good portion of the underside — so I wouldn’t recommend it for anything smaller than, say, a 12-inch.Some might argue that the benefit of raising your screen to a more comfortable viewing level is offset by having to angle your wrists up for typing. Perhaps, but I’m not convinced this is intended for full-time use. Rather, it’s for those times when you venture away from your desk, which already has an ergonomic screen/keyboard setup.That’s me in a nutshell; I work mostly at my desk, but when I’m forced to take my laptop elsewhere, I hate having to hunch over it. The Moft solves that problem beautifully, while adding almost zero weight or thickness to my travel bag.I’m not alone in my gushing admiration for this product; it has a 4.6-star review average from over 400 Amazon buyers (most, or perhaps all, of whom probably paid $25).At $17, I can’t recommend this thing highly enough.Bonus deal: Return of the Lightning cable 4-pack for $8A couple months back I shared a pretty sweet deal on MFi-certified Lightning cables. Good news: It’s back.For a limited time, and while supplies last, AHGEIIY has a four-pack of MFi-certified braided Lighting cables for $8.16 with promo code 2XPBTSL3. Regular price: $13.60. (Already pretty good, if you ask me.)  See it at AmazonNo, I’m not making up the name of that seller, though I do think sometimes these companies just flop their hands on the keyboard, and whatever comes out, that’s their brand. AHGEIIY? Whatever. Just take note that if you see a different seller listed, it’s probably because AHGEIIY’s supply has run out — and the next-in-line seller won’t recognize the promo code.Anyway, you get two 3.3-foot and two 6.6-foot cables. They’re braided for durability and appear to be pretty narrow around the Lightning connector, meaning they should fit into most cases. Perhaps best of all, they’re covered by a lifetime warranty — but take that with a grain of salt, because it’s anybody’s guess how long AHGEIIY will be around. CNET’s Cheapskate scours the web for great deals on PCs, phones, gadgets and much more.

Alaska Botanical Garden celebrates 25 years

first_imgAlaska Botanical Garden volunteer Kim Sherry works in their Heritage Garden deadheading flowers. (Erin McKinstry, Alaska Public Media)The 49th state isn’t exactly known for tropical orchids. But that hasn’t stopped the Alaska Botanical Garden from raising them. It’s one of many unique projects that the non-profit has undertaken since opening its doors a quarter of a century ago.Listen nowFans whir inside the greenhouse that houses the orchids. They’re helping distribute a blanket of warm air. To the right, a diagonal wall of windows lets in light. Shelves brimming with the green foliage of tropical orchids line the cement walls. Alaska Botanical Garden executive director Mike Monterusso carefully clasps the stem of a yellow flower between two fingers.“I had a vision for having orchids, but then we got this donation, so it’s all happening very quickly,” Monterusso said. They came from an individual in Anchorage.Alaska Botanical Garden executive director Mike Monterusso holds a yellow flower between his fingers. (Erin McKinstry, Alaska Public Media)Monterusso says what’s more important to their mission than the tropical orchids are displaying the hearty ones that grow naturally in Alaska. Outside we find a patch of spotted lady slippers at the end of their bloom. The flowers are tinier and more delicate than their tropical cousins. Right now, around 15 to 20 percent of the garden’s plants are native to Alaska. But Monterusso hopes to increase that number.“What botanical gardens did, you know, decades or even hundreds of years ago is collect local plants and put them on display for education,” Monterusso said. “And that’s something that I want to make sure we don’t overlook.”Monterusso says the Garden aims to do two main things: to operate as a museum that preserves, labels and catalogs plants and to teach the public about plants and their connection to them. Right now, they’re operating a summer camp that teaches kids about nutrition and ecology.A group of elementary-age children stand around a table peeling and cutting multi-colored carrots for a snack. On the other side of their tent, pink tubs filled with different soil types sit atop a table. Monterusso says the heart of their curriculum is teaching them to value diversity.“Diversity is, you can imagine, is good in the sense of nutrition, not only be aware of what’s around you and what you can use for food as a food source, but why one thing might be good at one time and another thing is good at another time,” Monterusso said. “And what the benefits are associated with those.”Kids chop vegetables as part of the Alaska Botanical Garden’s summer camp program. The program aims to teach kids the importance of ecology, nutrition and diversity. (Erin McKinstry, Alaska Public Media)In the heritage garden, created in 2015 to celebrate Anchorage’s centennial, giant cabbages grow in the back of a pick-up truck. Rows of broccoli are labeled with a skeleton to show that they help build strong bones. The Garden donates some vegetables to a food bank and a kids school lunch program. Others are given to one of the many volunteers like Kim Sherry, who works in the garden today deadheading flowers.“I’ve got a home garden. I’ve been doing vegetables and perennials and putting in annuals pretty much every year,” Sherry said. “But there’s just always more you can learn to improve your own gardening skills, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to not only get some good information but give back.”Monterusso said volunteers are essential to help maintain the gardens. Outside the vegetable garden in the surrounding spruce forest, native plants like forget-me-nots and wild roses fill the forest floor. In the gardens, red fern-leaf peonies and vibrant blue poppies bloom. A bumble bee buzzes near an ornamental raspberry plant that’s about to flower.“Each flower will have a bee in it and this whole bank here just is abuzz,” Monterusso said.Blue poppies bloom at the Anchorage Botanical Garden.Over the last 25 years, the garden has added buildings and a research plot and expanded their programming.“Gardens around the country have been in place for decades, or if you go into overseas you’ll go to gardens that have been around for hundreds of years literally,” Monterusso said. “So we’re still pretty young, still pretty new. But a lot has happened here in those 25 years.”They’re not done growing. Monterusso hopes to connect with the other two botanical gardens in Alaska to bring traveling exhibits to the state. And he hopes to start a holiday light event that would turn the spruce forest into a winter wonderland during the darkest time of year.last_img read more

Nearly 100 dead in Nigeria Cholera outbreak

first_imgNigeriaA cholera outbreak in north-eastern Nigeria has claimed nearly 100 lives over the past two weeks, the United Nations said Saturday.More than 3,000 cholera cases have been recorded in the states of Yobe and Borno in a region that is also grappling with a Boko Haram insurgency, it said.”The cumulative number of recorded cases in both states currently stands at 3,126 including 97 deaths,” the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said.The outbreak was declared two weeks ago in restive Borno, where hundreds of thousands of displaced people live in camps.Boko Haram has intensified attacks, especially against military targets in recent months.On Wednesday, the UN reported that more than 500 people had died from cholera in the Lake Chad region since the start of the year, representing the worst outbreak to hit the area in four years.It said more than six million people could be affected by the outbreak without urgent action to control it.Expected floods and heavy rains were “an ideal environment for the outbreak to spread”, OCHA warned.The Lake Chad region straddles parts of Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad and Niger, which are also having to deal with a jihadist insurgency.OCHA said Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation, was the worst-hit with 24,000 cases overall, and said immediate action was needed to stem the disease.Cholera is caused by a bacterium transmitted through contaminated food or drinking water. It causes acute diarrhoea, with children particularly at risk.Water-borne diseases are a constant threat in the Lake Chad region because of a lack of adequate sanitation as well as stagnant groundwater during the rainy season.last_img read more

It may be mentioned that at present JU has around 100 doctoral fellows and 50 post-doctoral fellows engaged in studies and research at the institute. JU is the first institute of higher education in the state to have received the grant, based on its NAAC accreditation for five years, beginning in September 2014. RUSA is a scheme that provides financial aid to selected state universities to upgrade research facilities.last_img read more

Speed up WordPress editing with shortcuts

first_imgSpeed up WordPress editing with shortcuts by Martin Brinkmann on February 21, 2017 in Development, Misc – Last Update: January 04, 2018 – 1 commentA large part of the Internet is powered by the content management system WordPress. While some call it a blogging platform, WordPress is more than that thanks to its extensibility.There are plugins that turn WordPress into a full featured eCommerce store, plugins that make it an art gallery, and plugins that create community sites with forums and more.This site runs on WordPress and the default editor that ships with WordPress is used to publish articles on it.WordPress supports formatting options, and many of the supported ones are listed in toolbars on top of the editing pane.While you can use the mouse to select items from the toolbar, it is not the fastest option. This may not matter that much if you post in a low frequency, but if you post several articles or more per day, it adds up quickly.WordPress editing shortcutsThe editor supports plenty of shortcuts. You can check out all of them on the WordPress Codex website.Below is a selection of those shortcuts that I use when writing articles on this site and others. The selection depends largely on what formatting options you make use of in your articles.Ctrl-B — Bolds the selected text.Alt-Shift-M — Insert an image.Alt-Shift-A — Insert link.Alt-Shift-C — Align centerAlt-Shift-D — Strike-through selected text.Alt-Shift-Q — Add a quote.Alt-Shift-1 to Alt-Shift-6 — Add Heading 1 to 6.The following shortcuts don’t require modifier keys such as Ctrl, Shift or Alt. Simply write the shortcut followed and hit the Return-key when you are done to add the formatting. Text obviously refers to text that you add after the shortcut.##Text — Heading 2###Text — Heading 3>Text — Blockquote* — Start an unordered list1. — Start an ordered listPlease note that shortcuts work only in the visual editor, and not the text editor. This is true for shortcuts with modifier keys, and those without.The text editor offers the advantage that you can add HTML to it directly. So, if you want something to display in bold, you’d simply use the strong HTML tag for that.It may take some time to get used to these shortcuts. Especially the use of shortcuts with Ctrl as the modifier, and a bunch of shortcuts with Alt-Shift as the modifier may be confusing at first.Shortcuts for commentsWordPress supports special keyboard shortcuts for comment moderation. The shortcuts are not enabled by default, and you need to enable them for specific users on the user’s profile page.So, select Users and then open the profile of the user that you want to enable the option for. If it is your account, simply select the your profile option from the context menu.Check the keyboard shortcuts box on the page, and don’t forget to scroll down to click on the update profile option.Once done, an arsenal of shortcuts become available:Use the j and k keys to navigate to the first, next or previous comment.Press a to approve the selected comment.Press d to delete the comment that is selected.Press z to restore the comment that was deleted previously.Press s to mark the comment as spam.Press q to quick edit it.Press x to check the checkbox of the current comment, or Shift-X to toggle the checkboxes.There are also bulk actions available.Shift-A, Shift-S and Shift-D approve, mark as spam, or delete all checked comments.Closing WordsKeyboard shortcuts can speed up WordPress editing or comment moderation significantly. While it takes some time getting accustomed to the shortcuts, you may want to start with some that offer the biggest return, and go from there.SummaryArticle NameSpeed up WordPress editing with shortcutsDescriptionThe guide provides you with information on how to speed up WordPress editing, and comment moderating, using keyboard shortcuts.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Nicaragua defies international court says Costa Rican minister

first_imgSpeaking at the United Nations on Monday, Costa Rican officials condemned Nicaragua for its alleged refusal to obey measures outlined by the International Court of Justice in an ongoing border dispute along the San Juan River,crhoy.com reported.Costa Rican Foreign Minister Enrique Castillo said in a to the U.N. General Assembly that “Nicaragua has ignored the order” handed down from the world court in March 2011, which included a series of preventive measures regarding the ongoing border dispute. The court ordered both countries to stop sending personnel to the region.“The Nicaraguan government has ignored the [world court] order and continues sending personnel into the [disputed] territory. They have made clear their defiance of the court,” Castillo said, according to crhoy.com.Addressing the General Assembly, Castillo said Costa Rica is “a small country, democratic, unarmed and civil,” and that its only means of defense is a pledge to peace and international rights.The minister also noted that what makes the situation difficult for the two countries is their location between countries of drug production to the south and “the big market” of illicit narcotics to the north, which is causing growing problems in the region.“We are victims of a problem of which our control is minimal and our recourse is less,” he said.  For this reason “Costa Rica considers it necessary to have a more active connection with the United Nations,” in the design and application of international strategy against drug trafficking.According to Castillo, “it is necessary that drug traffickers begin to be seen as a real threat to international peace and security.”However, he stressed that Costa Rica “has evaded the dangerous mention of ‘war’” in the fight against drugs, and rather has combined political action in preventing consumption, as well as providing assistance for illicit drug users.  Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more

Special investigator dies in Palestinian custody

first_img Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Sponsored Stories According to the suspicions, Mansour pocketed money given to him by the Palestinian Authority for sting operations meant to catch land dealers or to buy back properties whenever possible, al-Aidi said.As a former senior member of the security service, Mansour was being held in a regular room and not in a cell at the Military Intelligence building, said al-Aidi, head of the military judicial system in the West Bank.On Sunday, Mansour was told his matter would be referred to a special court for corruption cases, al-Aidi said.“He took a shower, shaved and smoked a cigarette,” al-Aidi said. Mansour told the guards he was thirsty and was told to go to the kitchen for a glass of water, the investigator said, adding that the detainee was not handcuffed or accompanied by a guard.“He went to the kitchen, opened the window and jumped,” al-Aidi said. He said a security camera captured the fatal fall, and that the footage would be made public.Al-Aidi said he did not know how much money Mansour was suspected of embezzling.However, relatives of Mansour, speaking on condition of anonymity at the advice of the family lawyer, said they doubt he committed suicide. They said he was upbeat when they visited him Friday. Top Stories (Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) An autopsy is set for Tuesday at Israel’s premier forensics institute, presumed to be independent, relatives said.Mansour’s death is training a spotlight on the murky world of secret West Bank land deals. Israeli settlers routinely try to buy Palestinian-owned land in the West Bank and east Jerusalem to strengthen their hold on territories the Palestinians want for their state.Those convicted of selling land to Israelis face the death penalty from the Palestinian judiciary. In at least one case, such a sentence was handed down but was not carried out, court officials say. They say at least 141 Palestinians are being held in West Bank prisons for selling land to Israelis.Palestinian society views such acts as treason because it weakens their quest for an independent state in the occupied lands.Mansour retired from the intelligence service, and then he was assigned to the attorney general’s office in 2009 to investigate land sales, said family members who would not give their full names on advice of their lawyer.Mansour was arrested more than three weeks ago on suspicion of corruption, said Abdel Latif al-Aidi, an official leading the investigation into Mansour’s death. Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Shahwan Jabareen of the Palestinian human rights group al-Haq said the autopsy must be done in the presence of an independent doctor. “Usually, when someone dies in custody, that raises our suspicions, but we are waiting for the autopsy,” he said.At least five Palestinians, including Mansour, have died in West Bank lockups in the past five years. Human rights groups have accused the Palestinian security forces of mistreatment of detainees under interrogation.As part of its crackdown on political rival Hamas, the Palestinian self-rule government in the West Bank has also become increasingly authoritarian, on occasion attempting to stifle dissent.Land deals between Palestinians and settler groups in the West Bank and east Jerusalem are usually done in secret because of the danger to the lives of the Palestinians involved.Scams are commonplace. Sometimes, Palestinians sell land they don’t own, or take the money without turning over the property. Other times, settlers falsely claim they’ve purchased Palestinian land and produce fraudulent documents.After successful sales, Palestinians often relocate abroad for fear of possible vigilante attacks against them.

Committee sets out police undercover operations

first_imgPolice will be able to operate undercover only in connection with serious crimes, and adequate measures will be taken to prevent endangering themselves, Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou said on Wednesday.Speaking after a session of the House legal affairs committee, which discussed a bundle of government bills reforming police laws, Nicolaou said the bill legalises the activities of undercover police, even though they are already admissible in court.“This bill safeguards members operating undercover, fleshes out the manner in which authorisation for undercover operations is issued, introduces the requirement for participants’ consent, and limits the scope for sting operations to the investigation of crimes punishable with at least three years in prison,” he said.“Further, members of police are afforded protection from potential consequences of their undercover action, as well as the opportunity to testify anonymously. These are procedures acceptable not only by our courts, but internationally.”The minister said that Wednesday’s session reaffirmed the co-operation between the justice ministry and the legal affairs committee, as well as the need to push the bundle of government bills through as soon as possible, in light of the recent report by criminal investigators, which showed that “without the required legislation we cannot effectively investigate or tackle corruption in the police force”.Asked whether the bill includes clauses designed to protect undercover police when they are found at risk, Nicolaou said that, in case their identity is compromised, police can, first and foremost, recall them from the operation.“And if they find themselves in violation of the law due to the operation assigned to them, they will enjoy the state’s safety net,” he noted.Nicolaou gave the example of an undercover policeman in the past, who committed a felony in the course of the operation, with the charges subsequently suspended by the attorney-general.“This legislation will protect members operating undercover, after they have received the necessary training – which is available now, too, in England, Germany, and the USA, so that members can learn how to carry out their duties and protect themselves,” the Justice ministry said, noting that sting operations involve many dangers.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
