Budget Transparency Morocco ranked regional champion

Budget Transparency Morocco ranked regional champion

Rabat – Morocco ranks 58th in the 2017 Open Budget Index (OBI), a ranking within the larger Open Budget Survey published by International Budget Partnership (IBP). The OBS aims to provide independent and comparative analysis of the core democratic institutions in 115 countries around the world. Three criteria are considered in this ranking: the availability of public budget information; opportunities for public participation in the budget process; and the role and effectiveness of the supervisory institutions. The OBS accomplishes this by reviewing key documents and ranking each participant country on the availability, and corresponding transparency, of its national budget information. The documents collectively reveal government priorities and proposals, executed expenditures and actual revenue, and a final accounting of the government’s management of public resources for the fiscal year. With 45 points out of 100, Morocco is considered the most transparent country in North Africa and the second in the MENA region after Jordan. The score also falls within the OBI average global range and matches the median score. In Africa, Morocco ranks seventh behind South Africa, Uganda, Senegal, Ghana, Namibia, and Kenya. According to the OBS, fewer than 25 percent of participant countries provide complete budget information.The index notes that Morocco remains in the category of countries where budget transparency is still insufficient. read more

RIM shares rebound after Vodaphone glitch disables BlackBerry service for some

Shares in Research In Motion bounced back Friday after U.K.-based carrier Vodaphone experienced technical problems that disrupted BlackBerry service to customers in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.Shares were up almost 10%, or $1.16, to $12.95 in afternoon trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.[np_storybar title=”Leaked photos of how RIM is going to market its last-chance BlackBerry 10″ link=”https://business.financialpost.com/2013/01/11/leaked-photos-of-how-rim-is-going-to-market-its-last-chance-blackberry-10/”%5DNow we have a first look at how it’s going to push new phones running the system, like the BlackBerry Z10, thanks to these leaked retail pictures shared by RapidBerry.net.

The stock has traded between $6.10 and $18.23 over the past year.Vodaphone PLC said the issue was caused by a router error and that service was being restored.“We apologize to customers for any inconvenience caused and we will provide updates as necessary,” Vodaphone said in an emailed statement.Users on Twitter express their dissatisfaction with Vodaphone:https://twitter.com/PhilosoPuppy/status/289693483210526720Vodafone customer service….. What a joke— Phil Woodbridge (@PhilWoodbridge1) January 11, 2013RIM said it was working with Vodaphone to resolve the issue.“All BlackBerry services are operating normally, but we are aware that a wider Vodafone service issue is impacting some of our BlackBerry customers in Europe, Middle East and Africa,” RIM said.The disruption, while relatively minor in terms of the BlackBerry global subscriber base, came as RIM works to improve its image and launch the BlackBerry 10 generation of smartphones.The Waterloo, Ont., smartphone maker has had several outages in the last couple of years, including one in October 2011 that knocked out service for millions of users.RIM hasn’t disclosed when the BlackBerry 10 smartphones will hit shelves or how much they will cost, but is scheduled to unveil the new devices on Jan. 30 in New York.The BlackBerry 10 is seen as a make-or-break product for Research In Motion, which has lost significant market share to Apple’s iPhone and devices using the Android operating system, particularly smartphones and tablets from Samsung.BMO Capital Markets lowered its price target for RIM stock to US$9 from US$12 on Thursday, based on revised earnings estimates for the coming year and 2014 following a visit to the Consumer Electronics Show in Los Vegas.“We believe the stock will be driven by the reception and results of BB10 products over the next few months, which we don’t expect to be positive,” BMO analyst Tim Long wrote in a research note.“Over the intermediate term, we believe falling service revenues may be more negative for the shares.”The company, which released better-than-expected results in December, disclosed during its conference call that it would change the pricing strategy for its services — causing several analysts to lower their earnings estimates for RIM. read more

Hamilton police are out on the roads looking for speeders and

Police will have ride programs set up in various locations across the city on February 17th and 18th. CHCH talked with officers about enforcing the new speed limit on the Red Hill Valley Parkway. Hamilton police traffic safety officer Claus Wagner says, safety this holiday weekend is paramount. Speeding is one of the top three reasons for crashes. Ride checks can pop up anywhere across the city. Always be prepared to stop and, under the new rules that came into effect last month, police officers can ask drivers for a breathalyzer test whenever they want.Seven people have died as a result of collisions on the Red Hill Valley Parkway since 2013. New speed limit signs were posted and police are monitoring the roadway closely. 50 over the limit is considered stunt driving and carries a hefty fine including points. Ward nine Councillor Brad Clark was on the evening news. He says in addition to police enforcement, there needs to be an increase in public education when it comes to speeds on the Red Hill.If you get caught and convicted, it can cost you up to a thousand dollars, three demerit points and a three day license suspension. read more

Wine and weed Some Oregon vineyards try hand at pot farming

Wine and weed Some Oregon vineyards try hand at pot farming

In this April 4, 2017 photo, Bill and Barbara Steele walk through their vineyard outside Jacksonville, Ore. The Steele’s moved to this corner of southwestern Oregon more than a decade ago to produce their own wines and are now turning their attention to small-scale marijuana farming. The legalization of recreational marijuana in Oregon two years ago has opened the door for explosive growth in this fertile region and a handful of wineries and vineyards are diversifying by investing in the crop. (AP Photo/Gillian Flaccus) Wine and weed? Some Oregon vineyards try hand at pot farming by Gillian Flaccus, The Associated Press Posted May 25, 2017 7:15 am MDT Last Updated May 25, 2017 at 8:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email JACKSONVILLE, Ore. – Bill and Barbara Steele moved to this sleepy corner of Oregon to start their own winery after successful, high-powered business careers.Now, more than a decade later and with award-winning wine to show for their hard work, they are adding a new crop: marijuana.Oregon’s legalization of recreational pot two years ago created room for entrepreneurial cross-pollination in this fertile region abutting California’s so-called Emerald Triangle, a well-known nirvana for outdoor weed cultivation.Recreational marijuana won’t be legal in California until next year, but a few miles north of the border in Oregon, a handful of winemakers are experimenting with pot in hopes of increasing their appeal among young consumers and in niche markets.“Baby boomers are drinking less. Millennials are coming into their time, economically, where in 2016 they were the fastest-growing consumers of wine, both in dollars and volume,” said Barbara Steele, who runs Cowhorn Vineyard & Garden in rural Jacksonville with her husband.“They’re looking for an experience of ‘wine and weed.’”The Steeles leased their land to grow 30 medical marijuana plants last year, and this year they are growing double that amount to be branded with the same label as their wine. They started with seeds in plastic cups under incubators in their laundry room, and pride themselves on a “seed to smoke” philosophy.This year’s crop also is for medical use, but the Steeles are seeing the benefits of the expanding market from legal recreational pot. Their weed was reviewed alongside one of their white wines in Stoner Magazine, an Oregon cannabis publication.“That conversation is possible here because our quality — the agricultural possibility — is so high. This is an amazing growing region,” Barbara Steele said.It’s hard to know exactly how many in the wine industry are looking at pot here, but there’s plenty of buzz surrounding the subject.Some vineyards are ripping out portions of grapes in favour of marijuana plants or leasing land to private growers. Others are talking about wine-and-weed tourism, including high-end shuttles that would stop at local wineries for tastings and at marijuana farms for glimpses of how pot is prepared for market.“There are a few wineries setting up very large recreational grows right now,” said Brent Kenyon, of the marijuana consulting business Kenyon & Associates, based in southern Oregon. “The ‘weedery’ and the winery. I think that’s huge, and we see it developing.”But that enthusiasm comes with a caveat. Marijuana is still federally illegal, and wineries must keep their wine and weed businesses separate or risk losing a federal permit that allows them to bottle and sell wine.That means establishing two distinct lots for tax purposes and keeping two licenses with the state, said Christie Scott, alcohol program spokeswoman for the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, which also licenses recreational marijuana. Vineyards that grow grapes but don’t have a liquor license, however, could get a recreational marijuana license, she said.In the nearby Illinois Valley, Katherine Bryan is tackling these challenges as she launches a marijuana business with her son.She owns Deer Creek Vineyards with her husband, but her pot operation will be called Bryan Family Gardens and will operate on land next to the vineyard.“We want to be as transparent as possible because when you’re under the federal government umbrella for your wines, you have to be very, very careful,” Bryan said.She plans to grow several hundred marijuana plants with a focus on organic cultivation and an eye toward a high-end market.They already have some buyers lined up and are installing greenhouses and lighting as they await approval of their recreational license.“I get $2,000 a ton for my pinot gris grapes, whereas I can make potentially $2,000 or more per pound of cannabis,” Bryan said. “We have 31,000 plants out here for grapes, so I’m pretty sure I can handle 300 to 500 cannabis plants.”Mark Wisnovsky, of Valley View Winery in Jacksonville, says some vintners are upset because of the stigma associated with marijuana. But his family’s winery was the first in the Applegate Valley in 1971, and everyone thought they were crazy then, too, he said.The family isn’t cultivating marijuana now, but Wisnovsky has been a vocal supporter of those who want to do so.Diversifying with weed could save vineyard owners who have overplanted grapes for years, he added.“A job’s a job, and money’s money, and we have capabilities here that are unique,” he said. “We either take advantage of the situation or let it steamroll over us.”___Follow Gillian Flaccus on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/gflaccus read more

As Rohingya crisis continues UNICEF seeks funds to reach 720000 children in

Another key part of the response will be providing protection services, including psychosocial and recreational support to up to 180,000 children through structured activities at child friendly spaces and referrals for children who require specialized support. The UN agency will also expand the network of adolescent centres to provide life-skills training, recreational activities, and psychosocial support to an especially vulnerable group. UNICEF will also initiate an oral cholera vaccination campaign, targeting all children over one, and 900,000 doses of the vaccine are expected to arrive in Bangladesh on 7 October, possibly earlier.Refugee crisis a ‘Level 3’ emergency Level 3 emergency In the context of Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC), a Level 3 emergency would typically be a sudden onset complex emergency requiring the activation of a UN system-wide response, with agreed mechanisms, tools and procedures. Glossary, UNHCR Global Report 2014 In related news, the UN refugee agency also issued an supplementary appeal for its emergency response in for the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. Declaring the crisis a ‘Level 3 Emergency,’ the Appeal issued by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) seeks $83.7 million in urgent additional requirements from September 2017 through to February 2018 and is built on the respective elements of the Preliminary Response Plan for the Influx into Cox’s Bazar. The Preliminary Response Plan was initially drawn, in early September, up by the Inter-Sector Coordination Group. It had appealed for $77 million for the response and is presently under revision. The UNHCR requirements presented in this Supplementary Appeal will be reflected in, and aligned with, the respective components of that revised appeal, the UN agency said. “Desperate, traumatized children and their families are fleeing the violence in Myanmar every day. We are scaling up our response as fast as we can, but the magnitude of need is immense and we must be able to do more to help them,” said Anthony Lake, the UNICEF Executive Director, who is visiting southern Bangladesh. “These children are being denied a childhood. They need our help now and they need our help to have a future,” he added. The UN agency’s $76.1 million appeal, primarily focused on preventing outbreaks of water-borne diseases such as diarrhoea, covers expansion of safe water and sanitation services, as well as improvements in hygiene systems for Rohingya children, many of whom are living in harsh and unsanitary conditions in makeshift camps and settlements. It will also provide nutritional support to at least 60 per cent of an estimated caseload of 7,500 children suffering from severe acute malnutrition and 70 per cent of children with micronutrient support, including Vitamin A.

Winning 10 Straight Put the Royals Playoff Chances at Even Money

Winning 10 Straight Put the Royals Playoff Chances at Even Money

These playoff percentages mean that about 58 percent of all win streaks that passed through 10 games came from teams that eventually made the playoffs, a slight increase from before.The Royals are right at the previous season average (they went 86-76, which gets you a regressed winning percentage around .522), but their pre-streak record was slightly below the standard for other 10-win-streak teams; their “at the time” regressed winning percentage was .488. How much does that matter?To determine whether these Royals could be a playoff team, we set up a logistic regression predicting make-the-playoffs odds from streak length, at-the-time regression winning percentage, and prior-season regressed winning percentage. This also helped us figure out how much of the chance of making the playoffs comes from the streak itself, and how much is just that good teams are more prone to run up these kinds of streaks. Causation versus correlation, basically.After running the regression, it told us that the Royals are 23.2 percent less likely to make the playoffs than a normal 10-game-win-streak team because their record before the streak was 29-32, whereas the typical 10-gamer would have been 32-29. That looks like a very strong effect for just a three-game swing; we might be seeing a big inflection point here. At any rate, as you would expect, pre-streak record certainly matters.Once we take their 10-win streak into account, the Royals have a little better than even odds of making the playoffs. Baseball Prospectus’s Playoff Odds Report gives KC a 42.3 percent chance of getting there. So if you want to peg the Royals somewhere around 50-50, that’s a decent place to start. And if you think about Kansas City’s roster — one with strengths but also significant weaknesses — that makes even more sense.On the plus side, the Royals are an elite defensive team. According to Baseball Info Solutions’ Defensive Runs Saved stat, KC has fielded the second-best defense in the American League. By Ultimate Zone Rating, the Royals actually lead all of baseball, and by a wide margin. The outfield is particularly impressive: The combination of Jarrod Dyson and Lorenzo Cain has been extremely effective in chasing down fly balls in the gaps. Meanwhile, Alex Gordon has been a force of nature in left field, the best in all of baseball by pretty much any advanced metric. He’s pretty good by Fancy Plays Over Replacement too.Your browser does not support iframes.That airtight defense has made an already strong pitching staff look even better. Closer Greg Holland and righty setup men Wade Davis and Kelvin Herrera have combined to allow just one home run in 89 innings pitched this season.Davis in particular has been a revelation. Acquired from the Tampa Bay Rays in the controversial December 2012 blockbuster, Davis was viewed as a throw-in, with James Shields and Wil Myers being the keys to the deal. After messing around with Davis as a starter last year, the Royals plopped him back into the role in which he excelled with Tampa Bay two years ago. So far this year, he has been right there with Sean Doolittle, Koji Uehara, Dellin Betances and one or two others for the title of best reliever in the American League. His season line: 31.1 innings pitched, 1.15 ERA, 52 strikeouts, and zero extra-base hits allowed.The starting rotation has flourished lately, too. Shields has been steady as expected, though his numbers are actually down slightly from recent years. But he’s received ample support, from 23-year-old fireballer Yordano Ventura (who leads all KC starters in fielding independent pitching), free-agent pickup Jason Vargas (tops in innings pitched), and Danny Duffy (tops in beating long odds, having come back from Tommy John surgery, and at one point nearly quitting baseball entirely).The big question revolves around the team’s offense. Just 13 days ago, the Royals sat in last place in the AL Central, and also last in the AL in slugging percentage, home runs and runs scored. Some of the team’s biggest slumpers came alive during the streak, especially Billy Butler and Mike Moustakas. Still, those players, along with talented but disappointing first baseman Eric Hosmer, have fallen well short of expectations in 2014, and KC still owns the third-lowest-scoring offense in the American League even after its recent explosion. The Royals almost certainly won’t be sellers any more at the trade deadline, not after this streak. Whether they’ll be buyers — to the point of possibly benching or jettisoning current players once viewed as future franchise cornerstones — remains an open question.Still, it’s a great question to get to ask. After nearly three decades in the wilderness, the Royals now have a legitimate shot to see October’s spotlight. It’s about damn time. The Detroit Tigers nipped the Kansas City Royals 2-1 in the final game of a four-game series Thursday. That win snapped a 10-game winning streak for KC, but even with that setback the Royals lead the American League Central Division by half a game. In late June. This is not a drill.If the baseball world seems shocked by the Royals’ sudden success, the franchise’s recent history may explain why. When the Royals beat the Tigers on Tuesday in the second game of their showdown for AL Central supremacy, the victory marked the first time the Royals had owned sole possession of first place since May 1, 2013.Of course, downtrodden teams always have a better chance to claim bragging rights early in the season, when hot starts and small sample sizes can skew what we’re seeing. So consider this: The last time the Royals were in first place after June 1 was all the way back in 2003. That year, Kansas City preyed on a weak AL Central — one dragged down by a 119-loss Tigers squad and no elite teams — to own a share of first as late as Aug. 20. They ended the season seven games off the pace at 83-79, a lukewarm showing for most franchises. For the Royals, the finish was almost something to celebrate. Kansas City hasn’t made the playoffs since 1985, the longest postseason drought for any major league team by a span of eight years.Now here’s the good news for Royals fans: Teams that win 10 straight games in a single season stand a good chance of making the playoffs. Which means that for the first time since “Careless Whisper” wasn’t at all ironic, the Royals could crack the postseason.Going back to 1995, the first year of the wild card,1The wild card was supposed to debut in 1994. But … well, you know. we looked at all teams that had a streak lasting at least one game (you gotta start somewhere), to see how often those streaks portended October baseball. Here are the results:As you can see, every team passed through streaks of one, two and three wins, and all but four teams passed through a streak of four wins. By this measure, with a 10-win streak the Royals have about a 55 percent chance of making the playoffs.2You’ll notice that it appears that a team is more likely to make the playoffs if it’s had an 11-game win streak than if it’s had a 12-game win streak. That’s just one of those weird quirks that can happen due to randomness in a small sample.It’s not quite that simple, though. Before their streak began, the Royals’ record only stood at 29-32, so they may not be totally representative of the type of team that tends to have 10-game win streaks. To examine that further, we looked at historical winning streaks of a given length since 1995 and tracked what each team’s regressed winning percentage was before the streak started (that is, we added 67 games of .500 baseball — 33.5 wins and 33.5 losses — to each team’s record at the time).3Regressed winning percentages add 67 games of .500 ball because that’s the number of games necessary for a team’s observed record to be half skill and half luck. (We know this by comparing the distribution of actual baseball teams’ records to the spread we’d see if every team was equal and each game was decided by a coin flip.) We used regressed winning percentages here so that every pre-streak winning percentage would be on the same footing, no matter when in the season the streak began. Otherwise, if one team started its streak early in the season, and another started it late, a straight average would weigh the two winning percentages equally even though the latter is much more indicative of what we’re trying to measure than the former. By regressing the records, we can make an apples-to-apples comparison between the streaks, no matter when in the season they occurred. We also recorded each team’s regressed winning percentage from the previous season. The results: read more

Puyol sends a stern warning to Ousmane Dembele

Puyol sends a stern warning to Ousmane Dembele

first_imgRight in the middle of the whole controversy with Ousmane Dembele at Barcelona, club legend Carles Puyol wanted to send the French winger a message.The current situation between FC Barcelona and Ousmane Dembele is quite complicated, the club has already expressed that they may want to sell him but Carles Puyol made one final effort to turn him around.The problems that the ‘Mosquito’ is having right now are related with a lack of discipline that is related to his young age, he’s been getting advice from all his teammates and even from his National Team manager.But perhaps getting a warning from Puyol himself might be the words that can make him realize where he is, not every player has the privilege of playing for FC Barcelona in their careers and almost nobody gets a direct scalding from Carles Puyol himself.If you are too young to remember, let us tell you that you missed out on arguably the most disciplined FC Barcelona player of all time, he is also among the most respected figures of the institution and he even has the admiration of players who were his rivals throughout his career.Puyol was part of a charity paddle tournament where he was seen playing alongside his friend Gerard Pique, one of Barcelona’s skippers today.🗣 Carles Puyol: “I don’t know how the dressing room works nowadays but it’s clear that everyone must help Dembélé for the common good. Sometimes, when you’re young, you don’t realize what you have, where you are, and you let things escape from your grasp.”— FC Barcelona Fl 🏆 (@FCBarcelonaFl) November 14, 2018When he attended the press after the event, members of the media wanted to know what he thought about Ousmane Dembele’s current situation and what the French player needed to do in order to reverse it.“Dembele is young, I’m not in the dressing room and I don’t know the day to day,” he said to Marca reporters.“The team have to help him because it’s not easy to adapt to the philosophy of Barcelona where everything is very different.”“Here he’s arrived late to training and he must learn that isn’t good enough.”He has good teachers who will help him, but it will depend on his attitude.”“It’s important that he reflects and thinks about things, because when you’re young you don’t realize what you are letting go.”“In the management of a dressing room there are problems every day because there are many egos in there,” he added.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.“We all believe that we are the best and we must play, and the job for the coach to choose.”“The important thing then is the attitude of each player, because being ambitious is fine, but respecting the group is always above that.”“I think he’s amenable and if he wants to improve and learn, he is in the best place.”But it depends on him.”Carles Puyol (Barcelona legend): “Dembélé must reflect and think about where he is.” [via md] pic.twitter.com/GxyTs4UzLy— Barça Centre (@barcacentre) November 14, 2018Puyol was also questioned about Gerard Pique’s advice to the French youngster, the Catalan player told Dembele that he needed to start living football 24/7 and Carles’ reaction was funny as he recalled that Pique was also quite a troublemaker back in the day.However, the former Barça skipper also remembered that Gerard is the one who brought his professional life in Barcelona a little bit of joy due to his lively personality.“It’s great that Gerard finally understood it,” joked Puyol.“It’s true that as a professional, you have to live football 24/7, if he says it it’s because it must be true.”“But in all seriousness, I’ve always said that Gerard’s arrival has been very important to me because I really did live football 24/7 and you always have to leave a little time to enjoy life.”“You have to find the moments to have a good time, which is something that Gerard taught me.”“But it is also true that playing at the highest level is always very demanding and you have to stay focused in order to maintain the same level of performance,” he concluded.What do you think about Carles Puyol’s advice to Ousmane Dembele?

first_img“Ultimately, ‘Project xCloud’ is about providing gamers — whether they prefer console or PC — new choices in when and where they play, while giving mobile-only players access to worlds, characters, and immersive stories they haven’t been able to experience before.”Microsoft first revealed it’s working on a game-streaming service during its E3 press conference, promising “console quality gaming on any device.” At the time, Xbox executive Phil Spencer told Variety video games are a mainstream business, and innovation is inevitable. “Frankly, we’ve been on that journey since you and I were playing on the original Xbox,” he said. “There is an evolution of experience, it is never static.”Microsoft isn’t the only video game publisher on that journey. Electronic Arts is also working on cloud gaming. Variety got to see a tech demo in June. The app looks similar to Netflix and reportedly works on everything from smart TVs to low-end Chromebooks. It will support cross-play, along with something EA calls “continuous gaming,” where a person starts playing on one device, pauses, and swaps to another device seamlessly.“The combination of streaming with a subscription can really transform the entire industry of gaming,” EA chief technology officer Ken Moss told Variety. “We’ve seen this happen in other forms of entertainment: movies, music, with this, gaming has that same opportunity.”Publisher Ubisoft also believes cloud gaming is the future. Co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot said in June he thinks consoles only have one more generation left before they’re replaced by platform-agnostic devices and streaming. “I think we will see another generation, but there is a good chance that step-by-step we will see less and less hardware,” he said. “With time, I think streaming will become more accessible to many players and make it not necessary to have big hardware at home.“There will be one more console generation and then after that, we will be streaming, all of us.”Microsoft will begin public trials for Project xCloud next year so it can learn and scale with different volumes and locations. “Our focus is on delivering an amazing experience that is additive to existing Xbox players and to empower developers to scale to hundreds of millions of new players,” it said. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Project xCloud runs on devices paired with an Xbox Wireless Controller via Bluetooth and it’s playable using touch input. It’s complementary to Microsoft’s ongoing work with console hardware, which means developers can use it to deploy and dramatically scale access to their games on xCloud with no additional work. Scaling and building out the technology is “a multi-year journey,” Microsoft said.“Far too often, gaming remains fragmented and isolated to individual devices,” Microsoft said. “The promise and potential of the future of gaming is a world where you are empowered to play the games you want, with the people you want on any device – where you are at the center of the experience.”last_img read more
