Rabat – INWI’s total subscriber base declined by 0.5 million to 11.6 million in the first quarter of 2015, according to Telecommunications Regulatory National Agency (ANRT).Morocco’s third leading telecommunications operator saw a shock fall of 594,000 in its mobile telephony subscriber base during the first three months of 2015. ANRT attributed this decline to the decision to ban anonymous SIM cards.The subscriber base of the two other telecom operators Maroc Telecom and Meditel has also dropped by 65,000 and 69,000, respectively during the same period. Overall, the number of subscriptions in mobile telephony has been reduced by 728,000. According to the same source, Maroc Telecom has 18.1 million clients – or 41.8 per cent of the market share- followed by Meditel with 13.5 million clients (31.1 per cent) and INWI with 11.6 million, or a market share of 26.9 per cent.
Rabat – Leaders from Morocco’s political parties have begun publicly reacting to the results from Friday’s national parliamentary elections, laying the framework for the establishment of new political coalitions.Head of Government Abdelilah Benkirane – who won a second five-year term for the highest elected office in the country – confirmed that, as expected, his ruling Justice and Development Party (PJD) would not be forming a governing alliance with its main rival: the Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM).The two parties had exchanged heated critiques that increased in intensity leading up to voting day. “Nothing can be said for certain in politics, but I believe that [the PJD] will not face the same issues forming a government [as it did five years ago], Benkirane said after receiving news that his party had won 125 seats – an 18 seat increase.Ilyas EL-Omari – who will be leading the opposition coalition with PAM’s 102 seats – said he was confident that voters in the Western Sahara region, Morocco’s Southern Provinces, supported his party for local and national seats, though region-specific results have yet to be published.Before the election, Secretary-General Hamid Chabat of the Istiqlal Party (PI) painted a vote for its policies as an “alternative to the bipolarity” between Islamists and secular leftists forming in Morocco’s newborn democracy.Chabat won a seat in a local council governing the northern part of Fez – a city that was an Istiqlal stronghold until 2011.So far, the party leader has not released an official statement on the election results, though the Interior Ministry says PI won 46 seats in the national legislature.The United Socialist Party (PSU), led by Endocrinology Professor Nabila Mounib, participated in national elections for the first time year, after boycotting the 2011 elections due to concerns about the limited scope of the constitution.Mounib said last week she expected and preferred for her party, and the two parties allied with her under the Democratic Left Federation, to be in the opposition to improve accountability and solidify inter-branch checks and balances.“There are many colleagues that deserve to win legislative seats in other regions, because Morocco deserves to have men and women of their kind,” Mounib, said on Saturday. “The leftist federation project that we carry with the goal of change has begun to find its way within this country. Moroccan trusted out project, which is getting stronger because it presents real answers to the major problems Moroccans have.”
Canadian space tech firm MacDonald, Dettwiler hires U.S.-based CEO TORONTO – Canada’s leading space-technology company says it needs to have a U.S.-based chief executive if it’s going to get greater access to U.S. government and commercial contracts.MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (TSX:MDA) has named Howard Lance, currently an adviser to the U.S.-based BlackStone Group, to succeed Daniel Friedmann, who has led MDA through two decades of growth and controversy.“To fully implement our expansion plans, the company needs a U.S.-based CEO,” Friedmann said in a statement.“Mr. Lance’s proven expertise in leading the expansion strategy of similar companies will be a tremendous asset to MDA.”Prior to BlackStone Group, Lance was chairman and CEO of Harris Corp. — a publicly traded U.S. communications and information technology company serving government and commercial customers from 2003 to 2011. He had senior roles at NCR from 2001-2003 and Emerson Electric from 1984 to 2001.Among other things, MDA designed and built the Canadarm 2 robotic system still used on the International Space Station, following its acquisition in 2005 of the original Canadarm developed by Spar Aerospace and used on U.S. space shuttles.Friedmann, who will remain on MDA’s board of directors after stepping aside as CEO, was at the helm in 2008 when the Harper government blocked the sale of its satellite division to an American defence contractor, Alliant Techsystems Inc.Critics of the $1.3-billion deal had warned that the sale of MDA’s satellite technology could hurt Canada’s sovereignty in the Arctic.‘We will work diligently to try and ensure that American markets are available to Canadian companies, but Canadians should not have to sell their assets and their companies to access foreign markets,” then Industry Minister Jim Prentice said in a speech at the time.Friedmann said at MDA’s annual meeting a few days later that he was angry Canada and MDA had the potential to be world leaders in space but they really weren’t “despite what people are saying.”Effective May 16, almost eight years after making those comments, Friedmann will be replaced as CEO by Lance, who has been executive adviser at Blackstone Group’s private equity business since 2012.MDA chairman Bob Phillips said in a statement that under Friedmann’s leadership”MDA has grown from a $100-million primarily domestic, private company to a $2-billion internationally oriented, public company.“We look forward to working with Mr. Lance on moving MDA to the next level of profitable growth and value-creation, and to Dan remaining on the Board and thereby continuing to make a valuable contribution to MDA’s future success.”Based on recent stock prices, MDA is worth about $3 billion. Last year it generated just over $2.1 billion of revenue and $142.8 million of net income, from just under $2.1 billion of revenue and $47.1 million of net income in 2014.The company’s next financial report is scheduled for May 4, when MDA also holds its annual meeting in Richmond, B.C. by David Paddon, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 14, 2016 7:35 am MDT Last Updated Apr 14, 2016 at 11:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
Never in the history of Ohio State has the university had the distinction of having both the men’s and women’s golf teams have a freshman win Big Ten Freshman of the Year honors in the same season. Until now. The Big Ten handed out their annual golf awards May 1, and among them were Kendall Prince and Grant Weaver, winning for women’s and men’s golf, respectively. Weaver is only the second freshman men’s golfer in OSU history to win the award, the first time going to Chris Smith in 1988. Prince shares the honor with six other Buckeyes, the last being teammate Vicky Villanueva, who won in 2009. “It’s a pretty big honor,” Prince said. Making it even more special, she said, was getting the award despite the “up-and-down roller coaster of health issues” she’s had this year. Prince found out she has an autoimmune disorder affecting her liver that at least once led to her being rushed to the hospital. But with consultation from her doctors, she was able to recover and again focus on golf. “She’s a real tough kid, no doubt about it,” said women’s coach Therese Hession. “She’s very driven … so there’s not going to be too much that gets in her way. She’ll come back as quick as possible from all these illnesses and injuries … more than most kids because she’s very committed to making her goals.” Compounded on top of her autoimmune disorder, she had emergency surgery on her appendix the day before the Big Ten Championship. That came two weeks ago after finishing a career-best third overall in the field in the Lady Buckeye Spring Invitational. Due to missing the Big Ten Championship, Hession said it dropped her one-tenth of a point from making first-team All-Big Ten. The appendectomy is also keeping her from playing in the first three rounds of the NCAA Central Regionals taking place Thursday through Saturday in Columbus. Despite all of the setbacks, Prince still made second-team All-Big Ten along with being named Freshman of the Year. She was the top finisher on the team three times, tying junior Amy Meier a fourth time. She averaged a 75 (per 18 holes) for the year, was under par four times and shot in the 60’s twice, including a career-best 67. That score came on her second set of 18 holes, where she played a total of 36 holes in one day during the Lady Northern Invitational in French Lick, Ind. She said it’s hard to imagine that at one point, she preferred soccer over golf. “I was huge into other sports,” Prince said. “I always thought I was going to play soccer (in college) until my sophomore year (in high school), and I switched my focus (to golf).” And when she committed to OSU, there was one thing on her mind. “Once I came in here, I was like, ‘That’s my goal, to be Big Ten Freshman of the Year,” she said. Although feeling honored for his achievement, Weaver said he didn’t even know the award existed until men’s coach Donnie Darr told him on the day the awards were announced. “I never really thought about it. It came as a complete surprise,” Weaver said. That might sound flippant, but it’s quite the opposite for the true freshman from Waynedale High School in Wooster, Ohio. He said his focus is more about teamwork rather than concentrating on how well he performs individually, attributing his humble attitude to his parents. “They always told me not to be conceited,” Weaver said. “Also, I played team golf in high school, so I’ve had the joys of winning as a team and it’s something that I want to continue and experience again. It’s a lot more fun when you’re playing as a team.” Weaver’s humility comes as no surprise to Darr. “He’s very, very mature for his age (and) controls his emotions very well, which is a huge asset for a college player, because a lot of college guys struggle with that part of their game,” Darr said. Weaver has helped the men’s team to a 67-49-2 record this year and an appearance in the NCAA regionals May 17-19 in Ann Arbor, Mich. He averaged a score of 75 (per 18 holes) for the season, including a career-best 69 on the first day of the FAU Spring Break Championship on March 23 in Lake Worth, Fla. Despite playing in junior golf tournaments since he was nine years old, Weaver said he never had a full-time instructor, just occasional lessons “here and there.” And he still wouldn’t give himself full credit for what he’s achieved this year. “I think that if he just continues to do what he has done and continues to work on the fundamental things … then he’s going to have great success,” Darr said.

RCT has successfully completed its biggest project to date for Caterpillar dealer Vostochnaya Technia which has seen eight automation solutions deployed at Polyus’ Olimpiada surface mine in Krasnoyarsk region, Eastern Siberia, Russia. The company’s bespoke department, RCT Custom successfully designed, manufactured and installed ControlMaster® Teleremote solutions tailored specifically for this project for a fleet of five Caterpillar 777F trucks, a Komatsu 1 PC-3000-6 hydraulic shovel and D-275A-5 dozer and an Atlas Copco DML drilling rig.“This project was a crucial turning point for the gold mine’s transition into an autonomous machine operation and will allow the site to operate more safely and efficiently. The solutions allow operators at the gold mine, to simultaneously clean up landslip while continuing production in the same area; significantly increasing productivity by reducing downtime associated with manual operation of the mobile machines. This is made possible thanks to the customisation of the Teleremote solution to incorporate the Multiple Machine Selection (MMS) feature which allows one operator to swap between machines when production tasks change. This is particularly significant to aiding productivity as the mine operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”Prior to the installation of RCT’s automation solutions, the mobile machines were operating in hazardous areas prone to rock fall and exposed to extreme weather conditions all year round. RCT’s customised Teleremote solutions removed the operator from the cab of the machines and relocated them to an ergonomically designed Control Station, complete with modern comforts such as heating, which is essential at a mine experiencing such extreme temperatures.Two Control Centres were deployed on site, one controls the trucks, dozer and shovel and the second controls the drill. Providing operators with a comfortable working environment has proven to increase productivity as they remain more alert during shifts. As well as protecting operators from the elements, each component of RCT’s ControlMaster® solutions were specifically designed to withstand the extreme temperatures experienced in Russia. As a result, all components are in compliance with ambient classification set forth in GOST 15150-69; ensuring components can operate efficiently in temperatures ranging from -45 degrees Celsius and 45+.Visibility was another factor that had to be taken into consideration due to the mine’s location. To ensure seamless operation during the evening shifts and the winter months, additional external lighting was fitted to the trucks and loaders; ensuring adequate visibility during the mining process during these times. This extensive project also required the reinvention of the design of RCT’s existing surface drill console which was installed to control the Atlas Copco drilling rig on site.The drill console was downsized and thanks to the latest ControlMaster® technology the Custom department was able to reproduce it into a more manageable size with the same functionalities it previously possessed. The console now consists of four joysticks which can be used over four different modes to perform 50 functions necessary to operate a surface drill via remote control. It was also integral the drill icons would translate well to Russian but also have a universal meaning.“Everything we have implemented on this console has been to serve a specific function. It was important we catered to every function the operator would have, as if they were in the cab of the machine,” said RCT’s CIS Business Development Manager, Stephen Macarow. “RCT can provide more than a standard offer; it’s our agileness and ability to rise to any technological challenge that gives us that competitive edge.”To further ensure operators have the same, if not better view of the operating area, pan-tilt-zoom cameras – capable of remote directional and zoom control were added to the drill. The end result was a modernised console that met all the criteria for this drill that will lay the foundations, to be adapted to various drills for years to come.A Polyus spokesperson stated that the introduction of capabilities for equipment remote control improved safety of mining processes in challenging mining and geological conditions of the Olimpiada Mining and Processing Plant. The project provided an opportunity to evaluate technologies and capabilities of remote control systems. And to begin work on assessing the possibility of using automated control systems to operate mining machines.VT’s Technology Manager, Alexander Voroshilov said: “for Vostochnaya Technica (VT) this project is not only the biggest technology project, it is a good example of strong partnership with RCT and good relations with our customer Polyus. The project involved 40+ employees from VT, RCT, Neman and Sercons working on different project stages, 4 tonnes of high technology RCT equipment was delivered from Australia to the remote mine site in Russia. It also encompassed specially designing and building 2 operator stations, obtaining 6 certification (permission) documents and it took 6 month for installation, full testing and commissioning. VT and RCT have been partners for more than 8 years, we worked as one team to complete this project and to provide a comprehensive solution to our customer.”RCT stated: “While RCT is prominently known for its work in the underground mining environment, its capabilities have always encompassed surface mines and this project is an excellent example. RCT’s Custom department’s unique capabilities are often called upon to provide bespoke solutions to CAT dealer, VT and its clients in Russia. This project highlights RCT’s interoperability capabilities; installing automation solutions on Caterpillar, Komatsu and Atlas Copco mobile machines and have them work together to achieve a common goal of increasing productivity safely.”

Ah, yes, Gillette. I’ll bet you’ve used one of its razors in your life. In response to all of these razor subscriptions popping up in recent years, Gillette also offers its own.There are three tiers for men:Sensor 3 — $7 for eight disposable razors, delivered every one, three or six monthsMach3 — $7 for one razor handle and four razor cartridges + $10 for four refillsFusion ProShield — $17 for the handle and four cartridges, $17 for four refill razor bladesThose prices are actually competitive with Amazon, at least for some of the products, and not all Gillette refills on Amazon offer Subscribe and Save. If you really want to “set it and forget it” with your razor blades, Gillette On Demand isn’t a bad deal.Oh, and for the ladies, you can get Gillette’s Venus razor on demand. For $10, you get a free handle, plus four cartridges. Refills — which also include four cartridges — cost $10 too. You can sign up to get those refills every month, every 3 months, or every six. For comparison, a new Venus handle with only two cartridges costs around $10 on Amazon. Harry’s Personal care Dollar Shave Club Post a comment Dollar Shave Club Supply One of the original razor subscription services, Dollar Shave Club offers three razor options; two-blade, four-blade and six-blade. All are under $10 per month for replacement blades and for the one-time cost for the handle.What started as just a razor subscription brand has now expanded into several lines of men’s grooming products, including skincare, hair care, fragrance, deodorant, shaving and oral care.For your first order, Dollar Shave Club urges you to get a starter pack, which includes two cartridges, a handle and shave butter for $5. After two weeks, you’ll automatically get a restock shipment of four razor cartridges and shave butter for around $25 (or more if you add additional products). You can customize both your starter kit and restock shipments to include body wash, face wash, shampoo, toothpaste and a toothbrush.Though their branding is aimed at men, I’ve purchased and used Dollar Shave Club’s razors in the past and they’ve worked well for my legs and underarms. Bevel Harry’s focuses on simplicity, style and craftsmanship for its shaving products. There are just two handles to choose from, and one type of razor cartridge. Its Winston handle is metal with no-slip rubber grips for $20. For $9, you can get the Truman, which has a rubber coating throughout and comes in orange, navy and green.Like Dollar Shave Club, Harry’s has starter pack for $8 that comes one razor blade cartridge and shave gel. Harry’s will send you eight new cartridges for $15 (plus shaving gel for an extra $6), every two, three or five months, depending on how often you shave.Harry’s also sells face wash, post-shave balm, soap and other body care items. P.S. I’ve also used their razors with good shaving results. If you truly want a women’s razor, Harry’s owns a brand called Flamingo that sells them, but it does not offer a subscription service. Gillette on Demand Harry’s Supply Getty Images A decade ago, if you needed razors, you headed to the drugstore. Now, there are many different companies that will send you new razors straight to your door, usually for less money than you’ll pay in-store.And while you certainly can just set up Subscribe and Save on Amazon for your favorite name-brand razor, Dollar Shave Club, Billie and other shaving subscriptions hope to provide more value with lower prices, better quality and add-ons.Interested in chucking your drugstore Bic for a monthly razor subscription? This guide will help you choose which one to use.These products and services are independently chosen by our editors. CNET may get a share of the revenue if you buy anything featured on our site. Billie See at Billie Designed for men of color See at Dollar Shave Club Bevel Coarse facial hair can be hard to shave, but kinky or curly hair is even harder. Bevel’s shave kit is designed with men of color in mind, to address their specific skin and shaving needs.The shaving kit mimics what you’d see at a barber shop, with a shave brush, skin oil, shave cream and an aftershave balm. All of those skin products have moisturizing oils to prevent bumps, razor burn and ingrown hairs. When it comes to the actual hair removal, instead of a multi-blade cartridge, you use a single-blade safety razor. The kit is $30, and Bevel will send you refills of razor blades, oil, shaving cream and the balm. See at Amazon 0 See at Supply See at Harry’s For men who love a straight razor shave, or who just consider themselves a bit hipster, there’s the Supply razor. This sleek single edge razor is made from aerospace-grade stainless steel and uses injector-style blades that are easy to change. Its unique design helps it stand apart from the typical safety razor. Oh, and the razor has a 100-year guarantee.Why yes, of course there is a starter set. It includes the razor handle with six month’s worth of blades, the standard shave setting, a shave brush, shaving cream and aftershave for $129. For just the razor, it’s $79 and new blades are $10 for 20 — which the company says will last you six months.Like Bevel, the Supply single edge razor is designed to minimize skin irritation, razor bumps, ingrown hairs and razor burn. Its unique design helps it stand apart from the typical safety razor.Yeah, those prices are steep, but Supply offers you a 100-day trial. If you don’t like it after you try it, you can get a refund.Supply sells a few extras too. For $30, you can get two metal pieces that let you customize how the razor shaves. One of these “shave settings” is designed for sensitive skin, the other for a close shave. You can also get a beautiful, though superfluous, leather case for $40. A razor that celebrates body hair The works Billie’s ambition is to provide women’s razors and body care products that don’t cost more than men’s. Women’s personal care products are often subject to the “pink tax,” meaning they cost more simply because they are marketed to women.The brand sells one style of razor, available in Instagram-worthy five colors. It has five blades and has a band of charcoal soap around the blades to help the razor slide easily while shaving.Billie’s $9 starter kit includes a handle, two cartridges and a magnetic holder to store the razor in your shower. The company then sends you four replacement blade cartridges monthly (or whatever frequency you choose), which also cost $9. Billie also sells body lotion, body wash and shave cream.What I particularly love about this company is that it celebrates and normalizes women’s body hair, whether you choose to shave or not, with its Project Body Hair campaign. Anyone can submit a photo of their body hair, and you can see photos from others who’ve contributed. In a society that often demonizes any kind of physical flaw on women, this approach is frankly refreshing.

A fuel tanker moves past Air India passenger jets parked at an airport in Kolkata May 6, 2012.Reuters fileFor an important parliamentary panel, the appropriate time for Air India privatisation hasn’t yet arrived. Are they a bunch of incorrigible optimists or just those nonchalant ‘beltway’ spendthrifts who love to splurge largesses on their own ilk?The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Transport, Tourism and Culture said in its draft report the taxpayers should continue to underwrite the losses of the decadent business that stopped returning profits — and serving the nation — ages ago.In 2012, the Manmohan Singh government ruled out privatisation of Air India and instead announced a plan under which Rs 30,000 crore would be funnelled into the company over a ten-year period to revive and turn it around. At the halfway mark of the costly turnaround plan, the fortunes of the withering behemoth aren’t looking up. It’s still wallowing in the quicksands of debt and corporate inefficiency.It wasn’t the first time that divestment of the carrier was on the table. The Air India sale came up as an option at the turn of the century but was put on the backburner, leading to huge losses, debt pile-up and bailouts while the white elephant remained a haven of red tape, lethargy, apathy and mismanagement.The parliamentary panel highlights the operational profits the national carrier made last year. But it conveniently forgets the fact that the meagre operational profits were a result of a continued softness in the global oil markets.Those blips on the bottom line were not brought around by any miraculous operational efficiency displayed by its 30,000 strike-prone, heavily unionised and combative workforce that loves grounding flights and skipping schedules at the drop of a hat. And, despite the operational profits the panel brags about, the sinking airline, which hasn’t reported net profits in the last ten years, continued to accumulate losses running into thousands of crores.All whimsical ‘turnaround’ plans by successive governments have involved the infusion of funds, generous loan guarantees and sometimes even the commitment to repay interest on outstanding loans. All this for the love of the idea of a national carrier? If the parliamentary panel has its way the government will end up funnelling another Rs 20,000 crore of good money after the bad. More taxpayer money down the drain, and with no logical end in sight to the problem.According to the estimates of Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA), the postponement of Air India divestment will also further lead to the erosion of investor interest. “Parliamentary panel recommending divestment of Air India be postponed by 5 years will further erode its value. CAPA estimates that the government would need to inject additional $2.5-3bn funding, and these may be conservative estimates,” Kapil Kaul, Chief Executive of CAPA, said, according to NDTV.The civil aviation ministry itself admitted some time back that it doesn’t know if anyone will be interested in buying the airline sitting on top of an explosive debt load and a decadent legacy.How bad is Air India’s debt burden?Air India carries a debt pile of Rs 52,000 crore. Of this, about Rs 22,000 crore is estimated to be aircraft loans while the bulk of the debts emanate from operational costs gathered over years of mismanagement. Such a huge debt overhang, coupled with the legacy work culture, is a major deterrent for a straight-laced privatisation bid.In October, there were reports by the Economic Times that the government would be willing to absorb a large chunk of the debt, yet again, to make the rickety company attractive to suitors. This debt offloading would incur the government a cost of about Rs 33,000 crore.The Parliamentary panel unabashedly vouches for another round of loan write-off. That’s hardly the solution. Air India should be allowed to go bankrupt, let its massive real estate assets in major metropolises be sold or auctioned to repay debts. The taxpayers, the banks and the investors in the banking sector don’t have to be scapegoats anymore. It’s an age-old thought, but when will the government finally move out of managing businesses that are better run in the private sector?Instead of talking about writing off the debts of the deadwood company and propping up its bloated establishment further, the banks should be allowed to seize the mortgaged properties, sell or auction them off to recoup their non-performing assets. If this doesn’t happen sooner, more loan write-offs and costly recapitalisations will ensue, eventually bleeding the public exchequer which in turn has to be replenished with more taxes. Mix this with the latest guidance envisaged in the FRDI bill aimed at resolving ‘bad debt’ in the system, and it’s clear who is going to bear the brunt.Complete privatisation While complete privatisation makes sense, the civil aviation ministry has been dead against such a move. The finance ministry is in favour of offloading the entire stake and leaving the Maharaja in the hands of private players. The Niti Ayog supports this line too. The third option is for the government to keep a stake in the carrier while it cedes control to the private owners.The government should go ahead with the privatisation of the airline without losing further time. The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs had given the nod for privatisation earlier this year. Now, the parliamentary panel’s reasons for putting off the divestment are hogwash. It claims Air India’s worth is larger than its business utility and offsets the onerous public burden the company passes on to the government every year. It even says the airline is useful at times of natural calamities! Overall, the sloppy text put out by the panel is a litany of shameless excuses and brash apology for a public burden.
Malaysia will deport 50 North Koreans for overstaying their visas, the deputy prime minister said Tuesday, in an apparent exception to a departure ban imposed after the assassination of Kim Jong-Nam.The killing of the half-brother of North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-Un with VX nerve agent in Malaysia last month triggered an angry standoff between Kuala Lumpur and Pyongyang that has seen them expel each other’s ambassadors and refuse to let their citizens leave.But Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi told reporters that 50 North Koreans working in Sarawak state on Borneo island — home to coal mines which often employ foreign workers — would be deported from Malaysia despite the ban.”We will send the North Korean workers in Sarawak who have exceeded their visa back to Pyongyang for overstaying,” he said. “They will be deported soon.”He did not say why the government had decided on the expulsion despite Kuala Lumpur’s bar on North Korean nationals leaving the country — a tit-for-tat measure put in place after Pyongyang prohibited Malaysians from leaving its borders last week.The diplomatic crisis erupted last month after North Korea attacked the Malaysian investigation into Kim’s killing as an attempt to smear the secretive regime.Three Malaysian embassy staff and six family members are stranded in North Korea as a result.Pyongyang, which has never confirmed Kim’s identity, has repeatedly demanded the return of his body but Malaysian authorities have refused to release it without a DNA sample from next-of-kin.The body, which is currently being kept in a morgue in the capital, has been embalmed to prevent it from decomposing more than a month after the assassination, the deputy prime minister said.”It’s an effort to preserve the body, because if it is kept in the mortuary it might decompose,” he said.Two women — one Vietnamese and one Indonesian — have been arrested and charged with the murder. CCTV footage shows them smearing the 45-year-old’s face with a piece of cloth. Pyongyang has insisted that he most likely died of a heart attack.Relations between North Korea and Malaysia had been particularly warm, with a reciprocal visa-free travel deal for visitors, prior to the high-profile killing.Up to 100,000 North Koreans are believed to be working abroad and their remittances are a valuable source of foreign currency for the isolated regime.

It’s that time of the year which stands for lights, sweets and lots of fun with family and friends. Also known as the festival of lights, India decks up in its best finery as the firecrackers light up the sky. But this is also a time when one has to be careful about keeping one’s eyes safe. Dr Soham Basask, Consultant, Cornea Department at Disha Eye Hospitals shares a few handy tips for you.4If a splinter or something that’s hot and burning gets into the eyes immediately wash with lots of clean water; tap water, drinking water, any clean water will do. You can also apply some ice or cold compress if possible. The best thing is to go to the nearest doctor. Many eye hospitals keep special night and emergency facilities on Diwali open. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf4Wearing plain spectacles goes a long way in protecting your eyes. Many accidents happen while a person tries to be adventurous by bursting crackers in dangerous ways. We commonly receive patients with injuries from bombs which are lit under some earthen pots and burst. Another common cause is when a cracker fails to lights up the first time and then someone tries to blow on it or light it for the second time it bursts on the face of the person. Such activities need to be strictly prohibited. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive4Do not cover crackers with glass bottles, tins, boxes or earthen pots for sound effects. They can burst into tiny pieces and damage your eyes forever. Also, do not go near crackers that have failed to explode.4If you are a contact lens wearer, it is advisable not to wear them while watching or bursting crackers. Contact lenses may cause irritation to the eyes if exposed to high heat for a long time.4In the event of an eye injury, do not rub your eyes or use local remedies like turmeric powder, coconut oil, etc. If there are any particles inside your eyes, it may worsen the injury. Instead, wash your eyes with clean water for about 10 minutes and after that consult an eye specialist at the earliest. 4Make sure you wash your hands properly after making a rangoli or handling fireworks, and before you touch your eyes. The coloured powder, chalk powder and chemicals from the crackers may cause eye irritation and itchiness and in certain cases, irreparable damage.4Even though fireworks may be pretty and bright, it is best to stay away from them. Do not let children light crackers. If they are bursting crackers, there should always be adult supervision.

Source = e-Travel Blackboard: M.H Brandon (SLH), Ralph (Eskaya Beach Resort), Somjai (Twin Palms Phuket), Sukesi (Oberoi Hotels), Eleanor (Lanson Place Hotel), Tiratas (Pimalai Resort) There were no Singapore Slings but there was plenty of rice wine at Sake Restaurant yesterday as delegates from five ‘Small Luxury Hotels of the World’ (SLH) properties across Asia hit Sydney as part of efforts to garner more business from Australia. Speaking to e-Travel Blackboard at the event, Singapore-based SLH Asia Pacific director of sales Brandon Chan said, overall, business for the group this year had been very good.“Our supply has not been able to meet demand,” Mr Chan said of SLH’s Singapore properties.Following the acquisition of its latest Singapore property, The Scarlet Hotel, SLH currently has three properties in the island state. But Mr Chan says the group could do with “another two or three properties” to meet demand. Lanson Place Hotel account director Eleanor Young told e-Travel Blackboard that although most of the Hong Kong property’s business came from China, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, the hotel did come under siege each year from Aussies and Kiwis during the Rugby World Seven’s tournament.“Anytime is a good time to visit us – except maybe during the rugby,” Ms Young said in reference to the high accommodation rates charged throughout the city during the event.“And our hotel overlooks Hong Kong Stadium!”Launched in March 2009, the Eskaya Beach Resort and Spa in the Bohol province of the Philippines is hoping its unique Filipino architecture and pristine location will draw more Aussies to its thatched villas or ‘balai’. “Our largest markets are in Asia and Germany,” marketing vice president Ralph Lim told e-Travel Blackboard.“But we’re here because we are hoping to tap more into the Australian market.”Over glasses of sake, bowls of edamame and platters of kingfish jalapeno, guests of the event were updated on the latest offerings from across the five properties, which also included the Pimalai Resort & Spa and the Twin Palms in Thailand, and Oberoi Hotels and Resorts in Indonesia. As part of its 20th anniversary celebrations this year, SLH last month launched its revamped guest loyalty programme, inviting members of the Club of Small Luxury Hotels of the World to feel Special, Loved and Honoured through enhanced loyalty benefits.
The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Vereen is adequately built but with short arms, small hands and a smaller than desired frame, there are concerns about if he can play safety in the NFL because of his physique. He’s not quite long enough to cover NFL tight ends, meaning he may not be more than a nickel-type corner.Vereen is an outstanding special teams player who will make it to and succeed in the NFL because of it, but the question is if he can he be more than that.Day three prospect Comments Share The Arizona Cardinals’ scouting tour began in full force at the NFL Combine, but the whirlwind truly picked up Monday as the team was in attendance of their first team Pro Day of the scouting season at the University of Minnesota for a closer look and discussions with the Golden Gophers.While Minnesota isn’t a hot bed for college football prospects, they do have two names Cardinals fans need to know about. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories Ra’Shede Hageman, DL 6-6 310lbsOne of the bigger physical freaks in this draft season, the question with Hageman is if his game will ever match up to his eye-popping physique and athletic prowess.Long limbed and broad chested, Hageman possess a rare combination of length and power in his upper body.At times he is dominatingly quick off the snap and can penetrate and disrupt with ease.Hageman lined up at every position in the Minnesota defensive front four and won. Whether it was rushing the passer as a defensive end lined up out wide or playing in a two-gapping run defense, stacking a shedding double teams of guards and centers, Hageman has experience and experienced success all over the line.The problem with Hageman is he doesn’t win consistently enough, but instead has flurries of dominance mixed with gaps of being invisible, being washed out and down, and just not being a factor enough.Day one prospectBrock Vereen, S 6-0 199lbsThe fluid Vereen is an interesting prospect because he offers the versatility that defensive coordinator Todd Bowles loves.Lining up at both safety and cornerback throughout his career, he has displayed good range and solid coverage ability in man and a good understanding of zone concepts.
