Morocco Launches Initiative for African Agriculture to Adapt to Climate Change

By Soumaya El FilaliRabat – The Moroccan government, at COP22 Climate talks in Marrakesh, launched a new initiative to help African agriculture adapt to climate change. Under the name of Triple A, the initiative aims to determine factors and carry on actions that will not only transform and strengthen African agriculture but also help it adapt to changing climate.Knowing that six of the ten countries most affected by climate change in the world are in the African continent, the initiative proved to be more crucial than ever. Bruce Campbell of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change said, “This event was a crucial step towards a mutual goal: finding ways to adapt to climate change and finding the funds to make it happen.”The Ambitious Triple A initiative seeks to mobilize $30 billion for Africa to adapt its agriculture global warming.While global efforts being at rest untill May 2017 will not make this task an easy one, many view this as an opportunity for Africa to take the lead in integrating agriculture adaptation in its climate change strategy by showing strong regional efforts and actions.Mohamed Ait Kadi, president of the General Council of Agricultural Development in Morocco, said: “We have billed this COP as a COP for Africa, providing a unique opportunity to showcase action for Africa, in Africa. The Paris Agreement explicitly refers to safeguarding food security. In my view, the willingness to address agriculture and food security finally appears to be having some impact.”If  proved to be successful, the Triple A initiative carries promising results of not only an increase in production from $280 billion to $880 billion by 2030, but also an increase in average crop yields as well as  significant decrease in drought and greenhouse gas emissions.Many praised and encouraged the initiative, such as Eduador Mansur, Director of the Land and Water Division at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.“The AAA initiative touches our heart, because of the opportunity it gives for South-South cooperation – there is so much to learn…we need to let this knowledge flow from one country to another,” he said. read more

Donors pledge over 400 million for UN rapid humanitarian response fund

“The most vulnerable people on Earth depend on your support to enable this work to continue,” Mr. Ban said in his opening remarks at the High-level Conference for the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF). “That is why I ask that you give as much as possible to this important fund. These are uncertain economic times for many, but I urge you to give generously and to give early, so CERF can help as many people as possible in 2014.”The Fund, established by the General Assembly seven years ago, has grown to become one of the largest and most reliable sources of humanitarian funding. Since 2006, it has disbursed more than $3.2 billion to emergencies in 88 countries.“It has proved itself as one of the most effective and efficient ways to support urgent aid needs,” Mr. Ban said, noting that this year alone, CERF funds have kick-started urgent humanitarian operations in Syria, Mali and the Philippines. In 2013 alone, CERF allocated more than $82 million to support relief efforts in Syria and neighbouring countries, bringing the total since the crisis began in 2011 to more than $135 million. In the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan, CERF provided the first major injection of funds for relief work on the ground. As a result, millions of people received desperately needed food, clean water and medicines.CERF has also been fulfilling its mandate by providing critical funding for less visible emergencies, added the Secretary-General. “In Haiti, Sudan and Somalia … in the Central African Republic, Myanmar and Yemen … wherever people are suffering, CERF offers a lifeline.”According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), which administers the Fund, more than $473 million has been released this year from CERF to enable fast delivery of life-saving humanitarian assistance to millions of people affected by natural disasters and other crises in 45 countries.“The Central Emergency Response Fund is a fund by all countries, for all countries,” said Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Valerie Amos. “It is helping us to ensure that those who need our assistance receive it – quickly, effectively and efficiently.” read more

Evergreen La Center bond measures passing Battle Ground uncertain

first_imgBond measures in the Evergreen and La Center school districts appeared to be passing in Tuesday night’s special election, but the first wave of results shows the Battle Ground bond measure passing but a few percentage points short of the supermajority needed for approval.All three bond measures require 60 percent of the voters to vote “yes” to pass.In Evergreen, results from the Clark County Elections Office so far shows that 60.12 percent of voters approved the district’s $695 million bond in construction bonds that would replace schools, build a new school and make district-wide improvements. It would also pay for a new central administrative office.Results show 65.78 percent of voters in La Center approved a $48 million bond that would build a new middle school and convert the district’s existing K-8 school into an elementary school.In Battle Ground, 56.91 percent of voters approved the $224.9 million bond to replace schools, build a new school and make improvements across the district. Two years ago, the district asked voters to approve a smaller $80 million bond, which passed but did not have the required 60 percent support for approval.At the same time, the city of Camas appeared to have strong support to renew an expiring emergency medical services property tax levy. Results showed that 72.57 percent of the voters approved the levy, the only other measure on the ballot appeared to be passing. The levy starts in 2019, lasting six years, and is slated to cost taxpayers 46 cents per $1,000 in assessed property value, and covers ambulances and emergency transportation.last_img read more

Rudiger Chelsea should be ashamed of Cherries defeat

first_imgAntonio Rudiger feels Chelsea should be ashamed of the manner of their 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth.The Blues were humiliated at the Vitality Stadium as they recorded their joint-worst defeat and the first in over 22 years.“Everyone needs to be ashamed of what happened in the last game,” Germany international Rudiger told Sky Sports.It’s matchday! ⚽️COME ON CHELSEA! 👊 #CHEHUD— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 2, 2019“Everyone needs to think very deeply about that because you can win, lose or draw, but it’s the manner which is important.WolverhamptonMatch Preview: Wolverhampton vs Chelsea Boro Tanchev – September 13, 2019 Wolverhampton will host Chelsea at the Molineux Stadium in one of the most interesting Premier League games this weekend.“In the second half, I can’t really describe it. We went out and they scored after two minutes then things went very badly. Nothing came from us – N’Golo [Kante] had a half chance but that was it.“If you look at the view of football, we made it too easy for Bournemouth by losing the ball up front – everyone knows Bournemouth are going on the counter, and they were waiting for this.“We have played better this season and that’s what hurts, we didn’t really try to change this result, that is what is bad.”Rudiger has demanded a response in their next League clash with struggling Huddersfield at Stamford Bridge.“We call ourselves a top team, but this cannot happen to us,” he added. “We have to be mentally strong for the rest of the season.“It’s clear now, we are Chelsea, there has been a lot of criticism from outside but here we must be cool in our mind and be honest with ourselves.“Tactics is not my business because I am not the coach, I am a player, but everyone needs to commit again.“If we speak about last season, we were solid in defence. Granted it was a different system, but we need to go back to basics because it’s not normal for a Bournemouth player to take on four defenders and go through.”last_img read more

Study shows powerful corporations really do control the worlds finances

first_imgNetwork topology with a zoom on some major transnational corporations in the financial sector. Image from arXiv:1107.5728v1 [q-fin.GN]. ( — For many years conventional wisdom has said that the whole world is controlled by the monied elite, or more recently by the huge multi-national corporations that seem to sometime control the very air we breathe. Now, new research by a team based in ETH-Zurich, Switzerland, has shown that what we’ve suspected all along, is apparently true. The team has uploaded their results onto the preprint server arXiv. Jill Brown on why corporations get branded as ‘evil’ Citation: Study shows powerful corporations really do control the world’s finances (2011, August 19) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Using data obtained (circa 2007) from the Orbis database (a global database containing financial information on public and private companies) the team, in what is being heralded as the first of its kind, analyzed data from over 43,000 corporations, looking at both upstream and downstream connections between them all and found that when graphed, the data represented a bowtie of sorts, with the knot, or core representing just 147 entities who control nearly 40 percent of all of monetary value of transnational corporations (TNCs).In this analysis the focus was on corporations that have ownership in their own assets as well as those of other institutions and who exert influence via ownership in second, third, fourth, etc. tier entities that hold influence over others in the web, as they call it; the interconnecting network of TNCs that together make up the whole of the largest corporations in the world. In analyzing the data they found, and then in building the network maps, the authors of the report sought to uncover the structure and control mechanisms that make up the murky world of corporate finance and ownership.To zero in on the significant controlling corporations, the team started with a list of 43,060 TNCs taken from a sample of 30 million economic “actors” in the Orbis database. They then applied a recursive algorithm designed to find and point out all of the ownership pathways between them all. The resulting TNC network produced a graph with 600,508 nodes and 1,006,987 ownership connections. The team then graphed the results in several different ways to show the different ways that corporate ownership is held; the main theme in each, showing that just a very few corporations through direct and indirect ownership (via stocks, bonds, etc.) exert tremendous influence over the actions of those corporations, which in turn exert a huge impact on the rest of us.The authors conclude their report by asking, perhaps rhetorically, what are the implications of having so few exert so much influence, and perhaps more importantly, in an economic sense, what the implications are of such a structure on market competitiveness.

Glattfelder, Stefano Battiston, arXiv:1107.5728v1 [q-fin.GN] structure of the control network of transnational corporations affects global market competition and financial stability. So far, only small national samples were studied and there was no appropriate methodology to assess control globally. We present the first investigation of the architecture of the international ownership network, along with the computation of the control held by each global player. We find that transnational corporations form a giant bow-tie structure and that a large portion of control flows to a small tightly-knit core of financial institutions. This core can be seen as an economic “super-entity” that raises new important issues both for researchers and policy makers.Via This document is subject to copyright.

LGBT actors facing disaster following reintroduction of Hollywood morality clause

first_imgA new morality clause could result in LGBT+ actors being shoved back into the closet, a report has said.Since allegations of Harvey Weinstein raping and sexually assaulting scores of women have come to light, film studios have lost millions in paying disgraced actors wages and damages, leading to some studios exploring the reintroduction of a morality clause.  Hollywood LGBTI actors face threat from re-introduction of ‘morality clause’Rupert Everett: Hollywood treats gays as ‘second-class citizens’Dustin Lance Black tells agents deliberately closeting actors: ‘Open your eyes’PINK NEWS- Actor Portia De Rossi, who is married to Ellen DeGeneres, was subject to this clause when she starred in an advertising campaign for L’Oreal while she acted in Ally McBeal.(Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)“The clause cited examples like public drunkenness, arrests, et cetera but I knew that it would include homosexuality,” de Rossi wrote.“The wording of the contract was vague, and I was unsure what would constitute a breach of the contract and how ‘morality‘ was defined. The whole thing made me sick.”Star of Fantastic Beasts and Perks of Being a Wallflower Ezra Miller recently spoke out about the fact that even outside of contractual obligations, queer stars are still warned to stay in the closet for fear that it will harm their career.“I was told by a lot of people I’d made a mistake,” Miller told Shortlist.“Folks in the industry, folks outside the industry. People I’ve never spoken to. They said there’s a reason so many gay, queer, gender-fluid people in Hollywood conceal their sexual identity, or their gender identity in their public image. I was told I had done a ‘silly’ thing in… thwarting my own potential to be a leading man.”“I was given a lot of stern talking-tos,” he added.It appears that the US might need its LGBT+ role models more than ever.The Trump administration recently refused to sign the Americas declaration in support of same-sex marriage.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… In the past, as morality clause has protected filmmakers and studios doling out damages to actors “if the talent engages in conduct that results in adverse publicity or notoriety or risks bringing the talent into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.And in an attempt to rewrite parts or omit disgraced actors like Kevin Spacey from the films in question altogether, Hollywood studios are debating the reintroduction of a morality clause, says The Advocate.(Getty)The measure, which prevents a studio from having to pay losses to an actor who is accused of sexual wrongdoing, leaves LGBT+ actors open to vulnerability as they could be forced to get back into the closet.Originally implemented in 1921, the law may have been introduced to ensure their reputation in the face of stars who had committed crimes of abuse, rape or even murder, but it soon resulted in a management of an actor’s personal life.“The studio bosses believed that in return for fat contracts their stars were under contract to appear — if not actually to be — ‘moral.’ If homosexuality was immoral in the mind of the general public, gay and lesbian actors needed to convince the public that they were straight, even to the extent of concocting pap for the media about their personal lives,” wrote historians Lillian Faderman and Stuart Timmons. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us)last_img read more

The Bahamas reports strongest tourism numbers ever

first_imgThe Bahamas reports strongest tourism numbers ever Travelweek Group Friday, March 22, 2019 NASSAU — The Bahamas has achieved its highest number of international arrivals ever, thanks in part to a boost in lift from source markets including Canada. The strong numbers have resulted in record hotel occupancy levels.According to The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism & Aviation’s data partner, ForwardKeys, which tracks inbound visitor data 365 days in advance, international arrivals to The Bahamas grew by 15% in January 2019 versus the same month in 2018, with several key markets registering double-digit growth. February was also strong for the destination, with an 11.1% year-over-year increase in international arrivals.The forward booking situation for the next three months (March to May) is “optimistic”, says the Ministry, with forward bookings running 9.0% ahead for international arrivals. April, ahead by 15.6%, shows the most favourable outlook.Air capacity grew by 20.0% in January year-over-year, with a solid seat growth from international markets like the United States (+23.9%) and Canada (+12.7%). The USA and Canada will continue to lead capacity growth in the next three months.

Global Economic Woes Drag Mortgage Rates Down Further

first_img January 15, 2015 434 Views It’s been another down week for mortgage rates, which continued to sink as the economic picture dimmed overseas.In a survey released Thursday, Freddie Mac reported that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged a rate of 3.66 percent (0.6 point) for the week ending January 2015, a decline of 7 basis points from last week. Last year around this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 4.41 percent.The week’s decline put the 30-year fixed average at its lowest point since the week ending May 23, 2013.The 15-year FRM also slid down to its lowest level since May 2013, averaging 2.98 percent (0.5 point) from last week’s 3.05 percent.”Mortgage rates fell for the third consecutive week as oil prices plummeted and long term treasury yields continued to drop despite a strong employment report,” said Frank Nothaft, VP and chief economist at Freddie Mac.While the headline employment numbers released for December—252,000 jobs added and a drop in the unemployment rate to 5.6 percent—the numbers underneath that were not as encouraging: Wage growth for all of 2014 was just 1.7 percent, while the labor force participation rate remains at its lowest in decades.Meanwhile, global economic prospects are dicey, with much of the eurozone battling deflation. Earlier this week, the World Bank cut its forecast for global growth in 2015 following a disappointing said the slashed forecast is “testament to the ongoing worries gripping financial markets.””These economic concerns, coupled with further declines in oil prices and renewed volatility in the stock market, brought bond yields and mortgage rates lower,” the site said in its weekly interest rate survey.As far as fixed mortgage rates go, Bankrate reported a 5 basis point drop for both the 30-year and 15-year fixed averages, bringing them down to 3.80 percent and 3.11 percent, respectively.Adjustable rates also continued to slide. Freddie Mac reported that the 5-year hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) averaged 2.90 percent (0.4 point) in the past week, while the 1-year ARM averaged 2.37 percent (0.4 point).Bankrate’s reading for the 5/1 ARM, meanwhile, was down 11 basis points to 3.09 percent.
