Rabat – The RNP will then conduct a census for the remaining regions between February 2020 and May 2024,  Minister of the Interior Abdelouafi Laftit said Wednesday.The RNP aims to collect personal data to ensure the government has reliable data through the use of a digital identifier for all Moroccans, including minors and Moroccans residing abroad, said Laftit.Laftit was speaking at a presentation on a draft sectoral budget of the Ministry of the Interior at the House of Representatives, Maghreb Arab Press reported. On August 27, Morocco’s Ministry of the Interior and India’s Bangalore-based Institute of Technology signed an MoU to work jointly on a social register project. RNP’s management system is based on the open source software platform, called “MOSIP.”The registration project, which the World Bank has helped finance with $100 million, is set to identify the needs and aspirations of Morocco’s most marginalized families.Read also: Morocco-India Social Register Program Aims to Reduce InequalityTo ensure good governance and reform of social protection systems, Laftit said that the registration system will based on three pillars.The first pillar focuses on RNP, and the second focuses on the Consolidated Social Register (RSU), which includes social and economic information to determine families in need of social services.The RSU is the only way for citizens to access all social programs on the basis of objective criteria according to socio-economic data and new technologies, explained Laftit.The RSU register will be put into general use between March 2020 and June 2024.The third pillar is the establishment of a public institution, the National Register Agency, which will manage the security of the technical system and the confidentiality of registers.Read also: CECE Report: Moroccan Citizens ‘Perceive Inequalities as Injustice’Registration a national priorityThe registration project is a priority for the Moroccan government because it reflects the instructions King Mohammed VI gave in his Throne Day speech.The King spoke about a new initiative to establish a “consolidated social register” to gradually improve social welfare projects.  “This is a national registration system to identify families that truly deserve to benefit from social assistance programs,” the King said.“It is a strategic and ambitious social project which concerns large segments of the Moroccan population,” he added.Laftit  also indicated that his ministry is working to monitor the national campaign for the registration of children who were not registered in the civil registry at birth. The campaign was launched in December 2017.More than 33,430 people had been registered by the end of June, the minister noted. read more

The nearly $2 billion renewal process for the entire UN complex – plagued by leaks, safety violations and outdated systems – is set to wrap up in time by 2013, with the renovation of the Secretariat tower scheduled to be completed in 2012, Capital Master Plan (CMP) Executive Director Michael Adlerstein told the UN News Centre.Some 5,600 people have been moved out of the UN compound and into various so-called swing spaces in midtown Manhattan.“The good news is that the space works well and that there is a general consensus that the space is functional and achieves the objective of keeping the UN operational,” Mr. Adlerstein noted.With staff scattered in various buildings, he stressed that “it’s very important to us that the Secretariat renovation get completed so we can bring the staff back home.”The official said that the next round of overhauls should not wait another six decades, and that the world body should undertake “less traumatic” renovations roughly every decade.At the ground-breaking ceremony two years ago, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon pledged to make the complex “a model of environmental stewardship” by reducing the UN’s electrical and water usage and by removing harmful materials that were used in the original construction.“As we conduct this work, we will never lose sight of the original purpose of our founders when they erected these buildings almost 60 years ago: promoting a safer, more peaceful and more just world,” Mr. Ban added.Upon the completion of the CMP, the UN compound will be “extremely green and sustainable and well-designed,” slashing water consumption and the world body’s carbon footprint by more than 40 per cent, Mr. Adlerstein pointed out today.“It won’t be wasteful as we’ve become over the year in recent decades, but it still requires constant maintenance and observation,” he added.Renovations are set to ramp up in the coming weeks and will be much more visible, as the Secretariat building is fully emptied of employees and scaffolding is put up. This “high-gear” phase is set to last for the next two years, the Executive Director said. 5 May 2010Two years have passed since ground was broken for the renovation of the landmark United Nations Headquarters in New York to make it safer and greener, and the process is “on track and on schedule,” the official in charge of the overhaul said today. read more

Lukas Schulze/Getty Images OTTAWA — Climate change talks in Germany are headed for a collision course on coal this week — and Canada is right in the middle of it.Environment Minister Catherine McKenna arrived this weekend in Bonn, Germany, to attend the second week of COP23, the annual United Nations climate change talks that two years ago led to the Paris climate change accord.This year, the parties to Paris are hammering out rules for how that accord will be implemented, how carbon will be counted and how countries will be held accountable for their emissions cuts.McKenna and her British counterpart, Claire Perry, minister of state for climate change and industry, want the conversation to focus on getting rid of coal as a power source, which is responsible for more than 40 per cent of global carbon dioxide emissions.McKenna and Perry are hosting a joint event Nov. 16 to launch a joint campaign calling for other countries to declare a plan not to build any more unabated coal-fired plants and eliminate existing ones. Unabated plants are those that have no carbon capture or storage technology to keep emissions from ending up in the atmosphere.The slogan is seen in the U.S. “We Are Still In” pavilion at the COP 23 United Nations Climate Change Conference on Saturday in Bonn, Germany. “We want every country to look at how they can reduce their use of coal and phase it out and we want to be supporting developing countries to do so,” McKenna told The Canadian Press in an interview last week.McKenna did not, however, commit any additional money to the program.About 10 per cent of electricity in Canada comes from coal, and 40 per cent of the electricity around the world is generated by coal-fired power plants.A year ago, Canada committed to eliminating coal as a source of power by 2030. Britain has committed to getting rid of it by 2025.Since Canada and the U.K. first announced their coal phase-out campaign last month, Italy and Netherlands added themselves to the list of countries aiming to get rid of coal. France had already set a 2025 coal-phase out target.But their anti-coal initiative is in direct contrast with the United States, which is kicking off the week with an event promoting all the ways fossil fuels like coal can be part of the narrative of combating climate change.“I anticipate it will be a big story this week,” said Catherine Abreu, executive director of Climate Action Network Canada, who has been in Bonn since the talks began Nov. 6.Last month, Scott Pruitt, the head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, declared the “war on coal is over” as he tore up the U.S. Clean Power Plan, a legacy of President Barack Obama that required states to cut emissions based on energy consumption and offered incentives to foster renewable power and energy efficiency.The U.S. successfully managed to convince the G20 to include a statement about the U.S. helping other countries “access and use fossil fuels more cleanly and efficiently” in its final statement in July. On Monday, U.S. officials and fossil fuel industry representatives will make presentations about it.McKenna however said the world has already decided with its money that coal is a relic of the past.“The market has moved on coal so the good news is you now have clean energy like wind and solar that’s cheaper and there’s far more investments in wind and solar than there is in coal,” she said.Despite her bravado, the Global Coal Plant Tracker shows plans are afoot for another 1,600 new coal plants, which once operational would expand coal power by 42 per cent around the world.China’s energy companies are behind 700 of them, despite China’s pledge earlier this year to scale back its coal plans at home. India’s state-run National Thermal Power Corp. intends to invest more than $10 billion to build new coal plants over the next five years.If Canada and the U.K. can get China and India involved to some extent, it would be a real victory, Abreu said. She doesn’t expect them to agree to phase coal out entirely, but agreeing to help would be a big step.Germany would be another big get for the coalition, and may be an easier fish to land if German Chancellor Angela Merkel tries to get the German Green Party into her coalition. The Greens want Germany to meet its emissions reduction targets, which would require it to abandon coal. read more

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) today called for immediate emergency intervention in Djibouti, where 10 shipping containers leaking toxic pesticide are creating serious human health and environmental problems. The current location of the containers – which hold chromated copper arsenate, primarily used as a wood preservative for power and telegraph poles and is carcinogenic – is already severely contaminated, FAO said. The worst affected site is within 400 metres of a food aid store. Over 200 tonnes of the chemical were shipped recently in plastic containers from the United Kingdom to be delivered to the Ethiopian Power Corporation, according to the UN agency. “All previous shipments of this chemical have used steel drums for the product and no leakage occurred,” said FAO expert Kevin Helps, who was asked by the Djibouti Ministry of Agriculture to visit the site and make safeguard recommendations. “It appears that the plastic containers have suffered a catastrophic failure resulting in leakage from the container. The containers must have started to leak while on the vessel.” Port authorities have taken first steps to safeguard the contaminated areas, and the potential for the spread of contamination by dust or wind has been reduced, FAO said. As an immediate emergency intervention, the agency suggested quarantining the storage site and placing guards to prevent access to the area. All further leakage should be contained to prevent further soil contamination. read more

Rufus Norris, the National Theatre’s artistic director, who, when asked about the theatre having permission to use “Royal” in its title, said: “Sometimes it’s very useful for us and reflective and sometimes it’s less so.” Credit:Matt Crossick/PA Rufus Norris, the National Theatre's artistic director, who, when asked about the theatre having permission to use "Royal" in its title, said: "Sometimes it's very useful for us and reflective and sometimes it's less so."  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. “Arts funding is being sidelined in the curriculum. Schools are cutting creative opportunities at every age group,” he said, adding: “Without a commitment to creativity in schools at Government level artists will continue to be drawn from a very narrow section of society. The arts thrive in diversity if class, of gender, of ethnicity. But they [Ministers] aren’t too worried our creative leaders are coming only from one sector of society.“To remain world leading our country needs to be funding bright, young talent from the outset. If Government policy continues to marginalise the arts there a very real threat to the creativity of our country.”The National Theatre’s new programme includes a timely adaptation of Andrea Levy’s award-winning novel Small Small Island, about the Windrush generation, and Lenny Henry’s one man play about the influential US comic Richard Pryor. There has been a suspicion among observers that the NT fears the prefix ‘Royal’ would not chime with its public image of staging cutting edgeexperimental plays and new interpretations of classic works amid its modern brutalist concrete home on London’s South Bank. But Mr Norris said the theatre welcomed the support of the Royal Family, including an intervention last month by Prince Charles – who once described its design as “a clever way of building a nuclear power station in the middle of London without anyone objecting” – during which he called for every child to have access to a “vital” arts education.His comments chimed with those of the chief executive of the Royal Opera House, Alex Beard, who last month said the inclusion of “Royal” in the venue’s name was “off-putting” to the general public, with those who are not familiar with its work fearing it is not for them.In an interview with the Sunday Times magazine, Beard said: “Well, we had three problems. “Royal. Opera. And House. Each of those words is charged.”Mr Norris courted further controversy on Wednesday when he launched an outspoken attack on the Government’s “neglect” and lack of support for drama as part of the timetabled curriculum in schools, saying it threatened to undermine Britain’s future economic prospects.He accused ministers of not caring that actors and performers increasingly come from a narrow layer of British society.Mr Norris cited figures showing that since 2010 there has been a 35 per cent fall in the number of students taking GCSEs in arts subjects. Britain’s national theatre has admitted it deliberately avoids using the prefix Royal in its title for fear of putting off potential new audiences by giving the impression it is an elitist institution.The artistic director of the National Theatre delivered a snub to the Monarchy yesterday when he suggested using its full title could usher in the theatre’s “downfall”.Permission to add the ‘Royal’ prefix to the name of the theatre was given in 1988, but the full title is rarely used – in contrast to the National Theatre’s counterparts The Royal Ballet and The Royal Opera House.Speaking at the launch of the National Theatre’s 2018/19 programme Rufus Norris indicated that was unlikely to change any time soon.He said: “This country is still very class divided and anything that adds to that perception, that this place is not open to everybody, could be a downfall. I fear that for some people that [the ‘Royal’ prefix] adds to that perception.”Mr Norris said he would consider taking the matter to the board of the National Theatre, paving the way either for the prefix to be dropped altogether, or even for it to be used more frequently.“This place has to be a community centre and the fact is that [using the prefix] that may alter that perception,” he said. read more

De fait, l’objet a aussi perturbé le fonctionnement des instruments utilisés par les plongeurs d’Ocean Explorer.Des structures similaires avaient été construites par les Anglais à la même époque, a précisé l’expert.  Érodé par l’eau salée et le temps, l’objet serait devenu difficilement identifiable. “C’est crédible (…) parce que l’objet est situé au-dessous d’une route maritime”, remarque Stefan Hogeborn, de l’équipe d’Ocean Explorer, qui estime que la théorie d’Anders Autellus est “un bon candidat” à l’explication du mystère.Le 13 juillet 2012 à 16:30 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgPRESS RELEASE – Oregon Department of Transportation personnel were to remain on scene monitoring two tanker trailers loaded with approximately 9,000 gallons of diesel after they traveled down an embankment on the south side of Interstate 84 in the Hood River area Friday afternoon. The company was arranging to off load the diesel before removing the tanker trailers possibly on Saturday. According to Oregon State Police Sgt. Pat Shortt, on March 4, 2011 at approximately 3:25 p.m. a commercial truck pulling the two tanker trailers was eastbound on Interstate 84 near milepost 63. The truck’s driver, Eric D. Christiansen, 58, from Vancouver lost control possibly due to an equipment problem on one of the trailers. The vehicles came to an initial rest teetering over the right shoulder guardrail. Uninjured, Christiansen got out of the truck before it continued down an embankment and stopped against several trees. The front trailer was ruptured but it appears a small amount of diesel leaked because the hole was above the diesel level in the tank. OSP troopers from The Dalles Area Command office, Hood River Fire Department, and ODOT responded to the scene. OSP’s investigation is continuing. The right eastbound lane is expected to remain closed until the load off-loading is completed.last_img read more

first_imgPro Football Focus has released their full list of the top-101 players in the NFL and the Cardinals have five players on the list.PFF released the first section of the list on Monday and gave Evan Mathis and Calais Campbell the 98th and 89th spots, respectively.On Thursday, Carson Palmer, Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu joined their fellow teammates on the list.The Cardinals’ quarterback came in at No. 40. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Last year, Palmer posted his best completion percentage since 2007.He also had career-highs in passing yards (4,671) and touchdowns (35), while throwing a career-low in interceptions (11) in seasons where he played at least 15 games.On the other side of the ball, Peterson, a three-time All-Pro cornerback, landed at No. 32 on the list.32. At his best, Patrick Peterson is one of the league’s top shutdown corners, or as close as anybody can get to that term in today’s NFL of pass-happy rules. He typically tracks the best receiver an offense has, and this past season when doing that, he allowed just 50 percent of all passes thrown his way to be caught (including playoffs) and was beaten for just three touchdowns, two of which came in the postseason and one of which was a Hail Mary. He didn’t allow more than four catches in a single game all season long, and was beaten for more than 50 yards just once. He also held Antonio Brown to two catches for 26 yards on six targets when they met, albeit when Brown didn’t have Ben Roethlisberger throwing him the ball.In addition to shutting down Brown, Peterson also shut down the likes of A.J. Green, who caught just two passes for 24 yards on six targets in Week 11. Comments   Share   Peterson has played in all 80 games since he was drafted by the Cardinals in 2011. He has accounted for 232 tackles, 58 pass deflections, 18 interceptions, 19 fumbles forced and four punt-return touchdowns in his five-year career (playoffs included).Joining Peterson on defense is Mathieu, who is a dynamic force in the Cardinals’ secondaryThe Cardinals had a 12-2 record and allowed 19.2 points per game with Mathieu healthy last season, but were just 2-2 (including playoffs) and allowed 28.2 points per game with him injured.Mathieu earned a team-high No. 18 spot on PFF’s list.18. Whether you want to call him a safety or a cornerback, Tyrann Mathieu is one of the league’s best defensive backs. He is a true playmaker on defense and has the ability to move around and cause matchup problems for offenses, putting them on the back foot for once in a league that usually forces defenses to react, not the other way around. Last season, he was having a Defensive Player of the Year kind of impact before missing the final two games of the regular season and the playoffs, leaving a big hole that the Cardinals weren’t really able to fill. He is a versatile playmaker, capable of excelling in the run game, in coverage, and generating pressure on the blitz, and regardless of what position he gets labeled as, he’s just a fantastic player.Mathieu earned first-team All-Pro for the first time in his career in 2015 after finishing with 89 tackles, five interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), 17 passes defensed, 11 tackles for loss and a forced fumble. 40. Carson Palmer is another player whose case rests on one season of obscene play. It’s tough to oversell just how good Palmer was in 2015 before injuring a finger and having the worst playoff performance from a quarterback PFF has ever graded. In that Arizona passing attack, Palmer had the league’s highest average depth of target, and his expected inaccuracy rate given the passes he was attempting should have been the highest in the league. As it turned out, he was the best on intermediate and deep throws, and if I knew I was getting that guy in 2016, he would by vying for a place inside the top-five on this list. The issue is that those performances were so far off his career performance graph that it’s tough to have any idea where his 2016 will fall. Palmer has been good before, but in the eight years before that 2015 performance, he had been pretty good at best. It’s tough to buy into the idea that he is suddenly the best QB in the game, even if he has found an offense that perfectly suits his style.Palmer’s presence on the field may be the most important of any Cardinal player. Arizona has a 29-9 record in his 38 starts for the Cardinals, but have a 5-6 record (including playoffs) with him on the sidelines.center_img Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelolast_img read more
