Advocates of monarchy in politics exposed Adityanath

first_imgLucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday hit out at the Congress for doubting the bravery of security forces, saying those who advocate “monarchy in our democratic set-up” have been “exposed” by one of the family loyalists. “Congress’ royal dynast family which advocates monarchy in our democratic set-up has been exposed by one of the family loyalists who happen to be Congress President’s conscious keeper,” he said in a series of tweets attacking Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s chief advisor Sam Pitroda. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details “The family enterprise had doubts about the bravery and valor of our armed forces when they were in power, but today New India stand with its soldiers to defeat forces of terror,” he said.

Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday His remarks came soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused the opposition of insulting the defence forces and of being the “natural habitat of terror apologists and questioners” of the country’s armed forces. Earlier in the day, the Prime Minister said in a tweet: “Loyal courtier of Congress’ royal dynasty admits what the nation already knew — Congress was unwilling to respond to forces of terror. This is a New India — we will answer terrorists in a language they understand and with interest.”last_img read more

Over a Third of Moroccan Exports Directed to ECOWAS

Rabat – In 2016, more than a third of Morocco’s exports to Africa were directed to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), making it the main African regional economic community destination of Moroccan exports.The imbriglio on Morocco’s membership into the ECOWAS is not clearing up anytime soon. While the 52nd Summit of the ECOWAS heald earlier this month was supposed to bring more light to the matter, the sudden postponement of the Moroccan file came as a surprise for many.Several local and international media presented diplomatic and political issues as the reason behind the delay of Morocco’s membership verdict, however, the answer could simply lay in numbers. While a preliminary version of the study conducted by the ECOWAS on the implications of Morocco’s integration was leaked before the latest corrections and re-readings, the study revealed the latest figures on trade between Morocco and the countries of the region.In 2016, 37.3 percent of Moroccan exports to Africa were directed to ECOWAS, which made the latter the main African regional economic community destination for Moroccan exports.Over the 2014-2016 period, more than 60 percent of Morocco’s exports to ECOWAS consisted of manufactured products, including fertilizers, building materials, paper, cardboard, machinery, equipment transport, drugs, metal packaging, metal structures and shoes.The other third consisted of food products, especially fish and wheat flour. At the country level, Côte d’Ivoire alone absorbs around one fourth of Morocco’s total exports to ECOWAS. Senegal came in second with 15.1 percent, followed by Nigeria with 11.7 percent.To a lesser extent Mali, Guinea, Ghana, but also Burkina Faso, Benin and Togo were also important destinations for Moroccan exports within the community.Yes, but …While the impact study produced is generally in the favor of Morocco, the kingdom’s membership to this common market of 350 million consumers must be done gradually.As Morocco is less economically protectionist than the member countries of ECOWAS, access to this market will be more difficult, especially for agricultural and industrial products. In most ECOWAS countries, the average customs fees exceeds 20 percent. However, this figure hides a great disparity between these two sectors.Goods such as pharmaceuticals exported by Morocco to the West-African community are exempted from customs duties, while other exports such as fertilizers, construction materials, machinery and transport equipment are subject to relatively low to moderate taxes at less than 10 percent. It is therefore not surprising that these products constitute the bulk of Moroccan exports to ECOWAS.On the other hand, products such as textiles, clothing, tobacco, sugar, meat, vegetables, soap and cocoa are among the most protected by tariffs between 20 and 35 percent. This is the result of the common external tariff (CET) in effect since 2016 within the ECOWAS.This mechanism comprises five categories: “basic social goods, including essential medicine” which are exempted from customs duties, “essential goods, raw materials and specific inputs” which are taxed at 5 percent, “inputs and intermediate products” which are taxed at 10 percent, “final consumer goods” taxed at 20 percent and “specific goods for economic development” taxed at 35 percent.These products, which are currently strongly protected by the ECOWAS, are certainly those on which Morocco hopes to gain export positions. “However, it would be useful to examine the impact that duty-free exports of Moroccan products could have on the import revenues of the countries of the community,” states the impact study presented at the last summit of the regional organization.Admittedly, ECOWAS already enjoys relatively good access to the Moroccan market, but there are still several products that are extremely protected by the kingdom. These include clothing and accessories, shoes, leather, vegetables, tobacco, dairy products, beverages and spirits, which are taxed by a minimum of 25 percent duty. This finding suggests that the expected gains for ECOWAS will be small.However, a closer look at the expanded organization in Morocco shows that it would gain diversification to export a wide range of high value-added products. Especially since this dynamic will be carried by two countries: Morocco and Nigeria, two economic growth powers that can pull the African market to prosperity. read more

UN Envoy urges Burundi leaders to seize opportunities for national unity and

Addressing the UN Security Council on Thursday, he commended in particular the adoption on 3 August of a roadmap for the 2020 elections that brought the various political leaders to a consensus. The Special Envoy commended President Pierre Nkurunziza for his recent commitment to leave office in 2020 and for pledging his “full support” for whoever emerges from the voting process, as the new president.The current crisis in Burundi began in April 2015, when President Nkurunziza began his campaign for a disputed third-term in office, triggering protests and a failed coup attempt.In his briefing, Mr. Kafando noted the improvement of the security situation since the 17 May national referendum on the new constitution which saw nearly three-quarters of voters registering their approval, or 73 per cent.“Since the constitutional referendum, apart from some objections by the opposition, the situation has remained calm,” he said, all the while encouraging the government to “remain vigilant”.Regarding the humanitarian situation caused by the onset of the crisis three years ago, the Special Envoy commended the efforts made by Burundi, Tanzania and the UN refugee agency (UNHCR), to enable the voluntary return of some 35,000 Burundian refugees since September last year.“These efforts must be sustained, respecting the principles of voluntary returns and guaranteeing the dignified reintegration of the returning refugees in their host communities,” he stated.He concluded his briefing calling on the authorities to finalise their agreement with the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) so that that his own office in Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi, could “operate in the best conditions”. read more

Pharmacists ordered to do checks on care homes amid fears elderly are

first_imgShe said:  “Our overstretched NHS is crying out for solutions and this one is bang on target.”Too often, elderly patients were put on extra drugs, without being taken off existing medication, leaving many taking dangerous combinations, she said.“Medicines get added to prescriptions over time to treat different problems and before you know it residents are on a cocktail of drugs which interact badly, make them ill and lead to unnecessary hospital admissions,” she said.New figures from NHS Digital show the number of prescriptions issued for antidepressants continues to rise, with a doubling from 33.8 million in 2007 to 67.5 million prescriptions last yearMeanwhile, the number of prescriptions for opiate-based painkillers rose by 78 per cent from 13.4 million to 23.8 million prescriptions over the same period, while prescriptions for statins rose by 53 per cent, from 47.4 million to 72.6 million.Last month a new study found deaths from addictive painkillers have almost doubled in a decade as trends in Britain follow “alarming” US patterns.The study led by University College London Hospital found a sharp rise in prescribing of opioid drugs, despite repeated warnings that the drugs should not be given for long periods because of their addictive qualities.It came after ministers ordered a landmark review of prescription drug addiction, amid concern over the rising number of people becoming hooked on painkillers, anti-anxiety drugs and antidepressants in midlife and old age. Show more They are concerned that vulnerable people are being left for years on a cocktail of drugs, leaving them heavily sedated or exposed to dangerous side-effects which are risking lives and fuelling hospital admissions.The average care home resident takes seven drugs, with medication for dementia, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes among those commonly taken.But some of the drugs interact with each other, while others, such as opiate-based painkillers and sleeping pills, can become addictive or cause major health problems. One in ten pensioners over the age of 75 is on at least 10 different drugs, NHS prescribing data shows, with statins, sleeping pills and opiates among the most common medications.Health officials are to fund 240 pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to go into care homes across the country, working with GPs, starting by assessing the medication of around 180,000 patients.   Pharmacists are to carry out checks on every care home in the country amid fears that thousands of elderly people are being subjected to the ‘chemical cosh’.Simon Stevens, the head of the NHS, will today order the deployment of hundreds of pharmacists to review medication being routinely doled out.The chief executive raised fears that a generation of pensioners has become increasingly doped up on a cocktail of drugs, causing more harm than it solves, fuelling record hospital admissions.He spoke as new figures show the number of prescriptions issued for painkillers and anti-depressants have almost doubled in a decade, with 91 million issued last year.Mr Stevens told The Telegraph: “There’s increasing evidence that our parents and their friends – a whole generation of people in their 70s, 80s and 90s – are being overmedicated in care homes, with bad results.“Let’s face it – the policy of ‘a pill for every ill’ is often causing frail older people more health problems than it’s solving,” he added, as he outlined a new national policy to review the medicines issued to residents of care homes across England.center_img Pilot NHS schemes in six areas of the country found such checks could reduce hospital admissions by up to a fifth and ambulance call outs by a third.One scheme found that every 12 reviews resulted in one less patient ending up being readmitted to hospital, after being discharged to a care home.Sandra Gidley, chairman of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, welcomed the schemes, which will be rolled out across the country.

FLSmidth to supply key process technology for two greenfield gold projects

first_imgFLSmidth has been selected to supply key process technologies for two greenfield gold mines being built by Canadian companies, one in West Africa, B2 Gold’s Fekola, and one in Canada, Pretivm’s Brucejack.For the Fekola gold mine in Mali, FLSmidth has been selected to supply the key milling, separation and gold refining technologies as well as commissioning and start up-services.Initial construction activities at Fekola began in February 2015 led by core team members of B2 Gold’s Otjikoto (its gold mine in Namibia) construction team. Early works included the assessment of construction equipment needs, purchasing and mobilisation of required equipment and materials, hiring of local contractors and mobilisation of key personnel. Early works construction included:Improving the existing access road between Kenieba and the site (complete)Construction of a new site access road (complete)Construction of an on-site airstrip designed to allow personnel to fly directly in and out of the siteCommencement of construction of the camp pad and commencement of excavations within the mill footprintExcavation and stockpiling of sand and gravel from the local river for construction purposes.Highlights of the optimised Fekola feasibility study:Open pit gold mine with an initial production life of mine (LOM) of 12.5 years based on probable mineral reservesAverage gold production for years one through seven of 350,000 oz/y at a $418/oz operating cash costAverage LOM gold production of 276,000 oz/y at an operating cash cost of $552/ozPpen pit Probable Mineral Reserves of 49.2 Mt at a grade of 2.35 g/t Au gold at a stripping ratio of 4.5:1Average LOM gold recovery of 92.8% resulting in a total of 3.45 Moz produced over the 12.5 yearsEstimated pre-production capital cost of $395 million plus $67 million for fleet and generator costs which are expected to be lease financed. This does not include approximately $30 million of early work completed by the end of June 2015Cumulative LOM net cash flow pre-tax of $1.66 billion at an assumed gold price of $1,300/ozNPV pre-tax of $1.01 billion at a 5% discount rate generating a pre-tax IRR of 35%Plant and supporting infrastructure built to a design throughput of 4 Mt/y with a 25% design factor which allows for future throughput expansion with minimal additional capital outlayStart of production is expected in the fourth quarter of 2017.The Fekola project is located within the Kayes Region, in southwest Mali, on the western border of Mali with Senegal. It lies about 210 km south of Kayes and about 40 km south of the city of Kéniéba.The other gold mine, Pretivm Resources’ Brucejack (shown in the picture), is being built in northern British Columbia, Canada. FLSmidth’s scope of supply is similar to the Fekola mine with the addition of Knelson gravity concentrators to capture the gold present in Brucejack’s orebody by means of gravity separation.The project is part of a largely unexplored land package of over 103,000 ha located some 65 km north of Stewart in northwest British Columbia. The Valley of the Kings is the focus, comprised of high-grade visible gold stringers within a lower grade gold quartz stockwork system. A feasibility study completed in June 2014 outlined Proven and Probable Mineral Reserves in the Valley of the Kings of 6.9 Moz of gold (13.6 Mt grading 15.7 g/t Au).It is to be an underground mine with an operating rate of 2,700 t/d using long-hole stoping and cemented paste backfill. Stopes will be mined using a combination of longitudinal and transverse mining, depending on zone width and orientation. Cemented paste tailings will be prepared in a paste plant located on surface near the mill and then pumped underground for distribution to the stopes.Other highlights of the June 2014 Brucejack feasibility study (using base case $1,100/oz gold, $17/oz silver and exchange rate of 0.92 US$/C$) include:Base case pre-tax NPV (5% discount) of $2.25 billionMine life of 18 years producing an estimated 7.3 Moz of goldAverage annual production of 504,000 oz of gold over the first eight years and 404,000 oz of gold over the LPMBase case pre-tax IRR of 34.7%, with payback estimated at 2.7 yearsEstimated project capital cost, including contingencies, of $746.9 millionAverage operating costs of C$163.05/t milled over mine life.“Our customers are interested in new highly efficient process technologies with low environmental impact. Our global footprint is also an advantage for gold miners where projects like Fekola – with owners in the Americas, mines in Africa and engineering houses in Australia – are the norm rather than the exception,” says Group Executive Vice President of the Minerals Division in FLSmidth, Manfred Schaffer. www.b2gold.com; www.pretivm.comlast_img read more

Pay with a credit card Expect a surcharge in 40 US states

first_imgStarting this week, you may get a bit of a shock when you go to pay for goods in stores across 40 of the US states. That’s because it’s now possible for retailers to pass on the credit card processing fee, or interchange fee, they pay on every transaction to their bank.This surcharge can be anywhere from 1.5% to 4%, and it’s how companies like Visa and MasterCard make a good chunk of their money. But now, due to a ruling by a US District court, merchants can pass that charge on at the point of sale if they so wish, leaving consumers to pick up the unexpected extra charge.There are a few exceptions to this rule. The surcharge can’t be applied in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, New York, Oklahoma, or Texas. It also won’t apply to anyone using an American Express card regardless of where you are in the US. And the surcharge is limited to credit cards, so you can pay with a debit card or cash to avoid it.What remains unclear is how many retailers will actually choose to ask consumers to pay the surcharge. It’s expected the big name retailers won’t, but smaller companies are more inclined to, simply because of how big the charges can be. The surcharge also extends online, so make sure to check the total before clicking the pay button for an online transaction.Discovering whether a retailer has decided to pass on the processing fee to you should be easy. Notices must be posted informing consumers to expect the additional cost when they pay. So you’ll probably see these displayed on counters in stores, or placed as a note in your basket for an online store.While nobody likes paying extra, at least you can dodge the charge simply by choosing not to pay with a credit card. In fact, if enough people decide to do this it should make the credit card companies sweat a bit and maybe think about reducing their processing fees.via ABC Newslast_img read more

Debt inspectors Greek reforms face critical test

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greece’s ambitious programme to overcome its debt crisis has reached a “critical juncture” and faster structural reforms are needed, its international bailout inspectors said Friday. Our overall assessment is that the programme remains broadly on track,” Thomsen said. “But it is at a critical juncture which needs a speed up of structural reforms to keep it on track.”Officials from the International Monetary Fund, European Central Bank and European Commission said the country’s reforms were broadly on track despite delays in some sectors, and they would recommend that Greece receives the next installment of its bailout loans. The 15 billion euros are part of a 110bn euro package of loans from the IMF and other eurozone countries that saved Greece from bankruptcy last May. In return, Greece has been pushing through a series of austerity measures and reforms, which IMF mission chief Poul Thomsen said were generally being implemented as planned despite delays and shortfalls in certain areas. “Our overall assessment is that the programme remains broadly on track,” Thomsen said. “But it is at a critical juncture which needs a speed up of structural reforms to keep it on track.” The initial part of the programme had “successfully pulled the economy back from the abyss,” he added.Servaas Deroose of the European Commission said a “decisive breakthrough in the following weeks and months will be crucial.” The current year will be a crucial one “for Greece to restore credibility of its economic policies,” Deroose said. “That is the prerequisite for Greece to regain market access in the course of next year.” At the end of their latest inspection, the debt inspectors called on the government to boost the size of their privatisation drive to 50 billion euros through 2015. “To help reduce public debt and to support higher investment and growth, it is essential to scale up privatisation in the economy,” said Deroose.He said a comprehensive plan through 2015 would be finalised that would “target total proceeds of privatisation in the order of 50bn euros for 2011-15, of which at least 15bn euros in 2011-2012.” The initial privatisation programme called on the government to raise 3bn euros through asset sales from 2010-2012, but that figure was increased to 7bn during talks with the government in November, Deroose said. However the government has studied the issue a lot and it is well known that there is quite a huge potential for privatisation,” he said, adding that the three main sources of privatisation would be listed and unlisted companies, government assets in those companies, and commercial real estate. The Papandreou’s government’s austerity plan has included increasing taxes, raising retirement ages and cutting salaries and pensions.It has also pledged to restructure loss-making state transport companies, reform the public health sector and eliminate tightly controlled licensing practices and fixed profit margins for dozens of professionals, from pharmacists to lawyers and notaries. The country has pledged to reduce its budget deficit to below the EU limit of three percent of gross domestic product by 2014. Source: APlast_img read more

Scotland boss believes in Tom Cairney

first_imgScottish national team manager Peter Grant praised the 27-year-old ahead of the national team’s next two matchesFor Scotland national team boss Peter Grant the chance to have Fulham midfielder Tom Cairney on his team is a great opportunity.The national team will play a friendly against Belgium and then will start the UEFA Nations League against Albania.“The biggest skill he’s got is the fact he is comfortable in possession of the ball. Fulham play in a certain style, they have done it for the last few years, and Tom fits into it fantastically well,” he said to STV.“He is very much a creator of opportunities, he is also a goalscorer and he has proved that over the past couple of years – player of the year and Championship team of the year.”“I think the Costa Rica game, we didn’t see the best of him. You need people running by Tom so he can step in and get on the ball,” he added.ScotlandScotland needs a hero: Billy Dodds Manuel R. Medina – September 10, 2019 According to former striker, Billy Dodds his country needs a hero to inspire future generations as the team’s hope to qualify to the EURO 2020 is small.“We have got to build a team round about the facts that help these guys be at their best.”“To create space, other people have got to move out your space, and give the ball early. He picks up fantastic spaces between the lines and turns and faces the opposition,” he added.“In that particular game we didn’t do that quickly enough, we passed square first half. To get the best out of Tom you have to have the right players round about him, and that’s what we think we have.”“He is more than capable and the great thing he is playing at the highest level, playing against top international players week in, week out,” he commented.“That can only make you think better. He is training with a group of players now at Fulham which is much stronger than last season, we spent £104million.”last_img read more

Doctors reconstruct vagina and uterus of 24yearold

first_imgKolkata: In a rare surgery the Diamond Harbour Government Medical College and Hospital (DHGMCH) successfully reconstructed vagina and uterus in a 24-year-old woman, who had a congenital anomaly characterised by the lack of development of the vagina and uterus.The hospital authorities claimed that this is for the first time such a complicated operation has been conducted by any government hospital in the state.
