Mezouar Succeeds Bensaleh as CGEM President

Rabat – The results of a vote has shown that former Minister of Foreign Affairs Salaheddine Mezouar won 77 percent of the vote for the General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises (CGEM) president.Out of the 6,635 votes, Mezouar won 5,173 votes compared to the 1,432 votes for his rival Hakim Marrakchi on Tuesday. Mezouar succeeded Miriem Bensaleh, who assumed the office for six years.Bensaleh completed the two-term limit with two three-year terms beginning in 2012 and 2015. On the sidelines of the election of the new CGEM president, Bensalah delivered a goodbye speech. Bensaleh said that her experience as  president of the CGEM helped her on a personal level. “I did the job,” she said.Bensaleh added that she worked to ensure transparency in the administration procedures in CGEM, emphasizing that she is satisfied with the achievements and the work she accomplished within CGEM. She added that “our demands to the government have led to the restoration of confidence in the business community and good governance.” Bensaleh is finishing her term amid a major boycott of three prominent companies, including her own mineral water company: Sidi Ali.During his election campaign, Mezouar pledged to boost business confidence and local investment. “I am carrying  a very ambitious but at the same time realistic program that aims primarily to boost business confidence and domestic investment.” Mezouar’s program aims to support fragile economic bodies “that suffer relatively and need tools and measures to regain their energy to continue to develop.”The President is elected by the elective general assembly for a period of no more than three years.Mezouar, a Moroccan politician and businessman, was born in 1953 in Meknes. Mezouar is the former president of the National Rally of Independents (RNI).Mezouar is also the former Minister of Industry, Trade, and Economy and  former Minister of the Economy and Finance. Mezouar also held the position of president of the Moroccan Association of Textile and Clothing Industries (AMITH) and president of the Textile and Leather Federation within the CGEM. read more

Novel U of S dachshund gait research has broader implications for rehab

Liam Richards / Saskatoon StarPhoenix Juniper, a one-year-old miniature dachshund, participated in a study by researcher Rachel McCann at the Veterinary Medical Centre’s canine rehabilitation centre. “One thing that we focused on, because we found it was different in dachshunds from other breeds that have been studied before, is how much weight they place in their front limbs compared to their hind limbs,” McCann said.The project found that dachshunds have a higher thoracic to pelvic force ratio than other breeds, meaning they put more weight on their front limbs.McCann said she was initially drawn to the field of veterinary rehabilitation while working with her own dog when she suffered from a torn ligament.“I brought her in for the treatments and it was really a fun time. They gave me a treatment plan where I had to go home and work with her on rehabilitating her,” she said.“What I like about veterinary rehabilitation is that it really harbours the human-animal bond. This summer has been one of the best experiences of my life.”amshort@postmedia.comRelated Ultimately, the findings will go toward a second project looking at rehabilitating dogs of various breeds with spinal injuries. Because it’s expected that many of the subjects involved in that project will be dachshunds, it made sense to establish a norm to work from, McCann said.The research, already completed on a handful of breeds like labradors and beagles, is the first to focus on dachshunds.“There hasn’t been any papers published on them and what the normal parameters for them are,” she said. “They’re a breed that suffers from intervertebral disc disease, and that comes in so often for rehab medicine. So it would be really useful to the veterinary community to know what’s normal in them.”The subjects, volunteered by owners in Saskatoon, walked across a computerized pressure walkway connected to an interface that measured various aspects of their gait, like pressure distribution and length of stride. Veterinary student Rachel McCann takes Juniper down a pressure walkway. The research project focused on how dachshunds walk and found they put more weight on their front limbs than other breeds. The trademark wiggle of a dachshund’s stride could point to more than just life with little legs.Over the summer, a team at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine set out to characterize what the breed’s normal gait looks like in order to better detect abnormalities like back injuries.Supervised by Drs. Romany Pinto, Danielle Zwueste and Kira Penney, veterinary student Rachel McCann trotted 30 dachshunds through the Veterinary Medical Centre’s canine rehabilitation centre and looked at how they moved.

Ohio State confident in JT Barrett after losing Braxton Miller to injury

OSU redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett scans the field during practice at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center Aug. 9.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorWhen a team loses its best player, not many expect the days following to be very positive.Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer said that was not the case following the news that senior quarterback Braxton Miller will miss the entirety of the 2014 season after re-injuring his shoulder Monday.“It would be hard to say it wasn’t — maybe the best practice we’ve had since our staff has come to Ohio State,” Meyer said Wednesday. “High energy, especially for practice 20. Really impressed.”On Saturday, Meyer announced redshirt-freshman J.T. Barrett had earned a slight edge on redshirt-sophomore Cardale Jones for the backup quarterback position. With Miller out for the year, Barrett will likely be thrust into the starting role, something in which Meyer said he is confident.“J.T. had about 300 competitive throws this fall, where when (former OSU quarterback) Kenny Guiton went into the game a couple years ago, I think he had six,” Meyer said. “He (Barrett) is a meticulous guy.”Meyer was not shy about comparing Barrett to Guiton, going as far as calling Barrett “Guiton-ish.”Senior cornerback Doran Grant also said he sees similarities between Barrett and Guiton.“J.T. does what KG does. He has had a lot of competitive reps this fall and has been looking pretty good,” Grant said. “They call him ‘The Distributor’ — that’s a good name for him because he is doing what he has to do.”Meyer said he also believes that Barrett’s ability to spread the ball around to the rest of the offense is one of his best skills.“Some of the best quarterbacks are great distributors,” Meyer said. “I thought Kenny Guiton was one of the best I have been around as far as getting the ball out rather quickly and distributing to playmakers…my initial evaluation of J.T. is that he is very good at that.”Grant said he has been impressed with not only Barrett’s play but also his leadership on the team.“I don’t think a lot of guys know this, but he (Barrett) was a part of the leadership committee as a true freshman,” Grant said. “He was the third or fourth quarterback on the depth chart (last season)…he just has those leadership qualities, and that has shown on the field.”Senior tight end Jeff Heuerman echoed Grant’s comments on Barrett and said the young quarterback has other positive qualities to bring to the table as well.“He is a great leader. He is super smart, he’s a hard worker and I think that was the case before this happened,” Heuerman said. “He handles his business and does everything right, and we have full confidence in him and full trust.“We’re behind him 100 percent.”Although the discussion was almost solely focused on Barrett and Miller, Meyer said he will still consider playing both Barrett and Jones week one against Navy.Meyer said both Barrett and Jones have positive qualities to their game.“J.T. has a pretty good release, and he has a good skill level. Cardale has got just a cannon,” Meyer said.Despite the confidence in Barrett, the loss of Miller still was not easy to take at first, Heuerman said.“I was with him when his shoulder was out of place, and I had never seen him like that,” Heuerman said. “He was in pain. So we kind of knew right away that it wasn’t going to be good.”Heuerman said that although Miller is lost for the year, he is confident that the Buckeyes will be fine with Barrett when surrounded by playmakers.“We got a lot of playmakers, and we are going to have to rely on them a lot to make plays,” Heuerman said.The Buckeyes are scheduled to open the 2014 season on Aug. 30 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore against Navy. Kickoff is set for noon. read more

Découverte dun nouveau métal

first_imgDécouverte d’un nouveau métalL’oxyde fer (FeO), lorsqu’il est soumis à des conditions extrêmes, devient conducteur sans que sa structure moléculaire ne soit altérée, c’est ce que révèle les chercheurs du laboratoire de géophysique de l’Institut Carnegie.La découverte qui a été faite par les scientifiques du laboratoire de géophysique de l’Institut Carnegie a pu être réalisée suite à l’étude du ferropériclase. Ce minéral est le plus abondant du manteau inférieur terrestre et contient à la fois du magnésium et de l’oxyde de fer (FeO). Bientôt publiée dans les Physical Review Letters, l’étude montre qu’à des conditions extrêmes (1,4 million de fois la pression atmosphérique et plus de 2.000 °C) l’oxyde de fer passe d’un état isolant à un état complètement inverse en devenant hautement conducteur. Le tout sans que sa structure cristalline ne change.« A haute température, les atomes dans les cristaux d’oxyde de fer sont disposés selon la même structure que celle du Nacl dans le sel de table » explique Ronald Cohen, principal auteur de l’étude. « Tout comme le sel, l’oxyde de fer à température ambiante est un bon isolant mais nos études montrent qu’il devient métallique [conducteur] sans aucun changement dans sa structure avec une forte pression et une température élevée ».Cette découverte a des implications pour la compréhension du champ magnétique terrestre, généré par le noyau, rapporte Sciences et Avenir.

NWS issues warning for Columbia River Gorge as temps rise to triple

first_imgThe hottest three days of the summer are expected Tuesday through Thursday.The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for Columbia River Gorge and northern Willamette Valley, along with most Clark County communities. The warning takes effect at 2 p.m. Tuesday and will last until late Thursday night.Daytime high temperatures are forecasted between 98 and 103 degrees for the Portland-Vancouver area during the next three days. Tuesday’s high will peak near 100 degrees, but things will only get hotter from there.“It will be warmest in urban areas,” the weather service said.Heat and humidity may cause heat stress, especially with the limited relief at night.Precautions are encouraged, as forecasters issue the warning when a “prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures” occur. Here’s what residents can do: Drink fluids. Stay in air-conditioned rooms, if possible. Stay out of the sun. Check on friends and neighbors. Reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or the evening. Wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing. People should also know the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. The former generally involves cool, moist skin with goosebumps, even when in the heat while the latter causes red, hot, dry skin. Read more about the differences between the two illnesses here.Heat stroke is an emergency, so call 911.last_img read more

Blazers trade Bayless to Hornets

first_imgTUALATIN, Ore. — The last seven exhibitions games may have very well prepared Jerryd Bayless for the regular season. He just won’t be playing that season in a Blazers uniform. The Blazers announced Saturday that the backup point guard was traded to the New Orleans Hornets for a conditional first-round draft pick. Bayless, who’s in his third year in the league, averaged 8.5 points and 17.6 minutes per game for Portland last year. He averaged eight points per game this preseason. “Jerryd did a good job for us, but we really feel like getting a great asset –a New Orleans pick in the future — gives us a lot of options down the road,” said Blazers general manager Rich Cho, adding that Jerryd was “very positive” and was “looking for more minutes.”The first-round draft pick Portland will receive is top-7 protected in 2011 and top-8 protected in 2012, 2013, and 2014. In other words, if the Hornets have one of the top seven picks in the draft next year, Portland won’t get the pick. If they have one of the top eight picks in each of the three years following, the Blazers still won’t get the pick. After that, it becomes two second round picks in 2015 and 2016. So the best case scenario for the Blazers would be to have New Orleans barely miss the playoffs earn a high draft choice — but not too high.last_img read more

Cryogenically frozen rabbit brain returned nearperfectly from preservation

first_imgA cryogenically frozen rabbit brain has been returned from preservation in near-perfect condition. Researchers behind the breakthrough say there is no reason their technique could not be applied to larger mammals, including cows and primates, for long-term cryogenic preservation.The team at 21st Century Medicine has been awarded the Small Mammal Brain Preservation Prize for this achievement. Their study was published in the journal Cryobiology and shows how the neural circuits of an intact rabbit brain could be preserved in long-term storage using a preservation method they developed.Kenneth Hayworth, president of the Brain Preservation Foundation, which runs the award, said: Every neuron and synapse looks beautifully preserved across the entire brain. Simply amazing given that I held in my hand this very same brain when it was vitrified glassy solid… This is not your fathers cryonics.The researchers, led by Robert McIntyre, used a combination of chemical fixation and cryogenic cooling – which they call aldehyde-stabilised cryopreservation (ASC). In the study, they wrote: To demonstrate the feasibility of ASC, we perfuse-fixed rabbit and pig brains with a glutaraldehyde-based fixative, then slowly perfused increasing concentrations of ethylene glycol over several hours in a manner similar to techniques used for whole organ cryopreservation.Once a specific ethylene glycol level was reached, the brains were frozen at -135C for long-term storage. The brains were then rewarmed and evaluated for signs of damage.Preservation was uniformly excellent: processes were easily traceable and synapses were crisp in both species, they said. ASC has many advantages over other brain-banking techniques: chemicals are delivered via perfusion, which enables easy scaling to brains of any size; vitrification ensures that the ultrastructure of the brain will not degrade even over very long storage times; and the cryoprotectant can be removed, yielding a perfusable aldehyde-preserved brain which is suitable for a wide variety of brain assays.The researchers said they do not see any reason the technique cannot be used to preserve even larger brains, including cows, dogs and primates. However, they said human brains may prove more difficult because brain banks normally only receive them many hours after death.Furthermore, we do not see any simple way for ASC to be compatible with research protocols that require both fixed and unfixed tissue from the same brain; ASC delivers chemicals via perfusion and so must fix and cryopreserve the entire brain. Although we have emphasised the neurobiological applications of ASC here, our method is general and should be applicable to any organ system, or even to entire animals.They added: ASC promises to be a powerful new technique in the quest of connectomics researchers to unravel the mysteries of the mind. We also hope that ASC will inspire investigators in other fields to consider the possibility of cryobiological solutions to their problems.Scientists working in cryonics have been searching for a way to put terminal patients into a state of long-term preservation in the hope that they could one day be woken up and cured by future medical and technological breakthroughs. Over the last 20 years, a number of breakthroughs have been made – specifically to stop ice forming on the brain. This is known as vitrification. However, while this prevents damage to cell structures, when it is applied to whole brains there is dramatic shrinkage of the tissues. Should McIntyre and his teams technique prove successful in larger mammals, this problem may be overcome.In the longer term, scientists working on cryogenics hope to find a way to preserve not just the brain, but the memories it holds. There is compelling preliminary evidence from the neuroscience literature that preserving a brain at the ultrastructure level… might also preserve the memories stored in that brain, the BPF said. Now that whole brain preservation is a scientific reality, we look forward to a lively scientific debate over the exact level of preservation necessary to preserve memory.last_img read more

first_img Janaury 20, 2010 – The Democrats were going to need all 60 votes from its caucus in the Senate for the reconciled healthcare reform bill to pass, but the election of Republican Scott Brown to fill the seat of the late Edward Kennedy (D-MA) has, according to the American College of Radiology (ACR), “complicated the next steps in the process to enact healthcare reform.”The ACR notes that while the loss of the Massachusetts seat gives the Democratic caucus only 59 votes, Congress still has options to pass the healthcare overhaul bill. The ACR lays out these options in a recent posting on their Web site, www.acr.org.First, the House could simply pass the Senate bill and not present a reconciled version to Senate, where getting 60 votes now appears unlikely.Secondly, the House could pass the Senate bill now and try to pass a second bill later that includes increased excise taxes on high-end and union negotiated insurance policies. Thirdly, a bicameral compromise could draft a final version considered under budgetary reconciliation rules. A bill considered under reconciliation rules only requires 51 votes to pass, and this could speed passage of a bill through the Senate.

Aesops take on the Cyprob

first_imgIF AESOP was alive in Cyprus today you can be sure that he would have enriched his repertoire of fables and written the following:“Once upon a time, in an area of forest by a lake lived eight squirrels and two foxes. As a result of fighting between them the area was divided into two parts after the arrival of a large number of the 800 foxes that lived on the other side of the lake. Strengthened by this intervention, the two foxes took control of 37 per cent of the area. The squirrels felt a deep sense of injustice but could do nothing because the two foxes had the help of such a large group of other foxes. Talks to solve the matter were fruitless. The owls of the forest suggested to the squirrels that the best Plan B was arbitration by the UN (United Newts) that were responsible for keeping the peace in the forest. In vain though. The wise owls were ignored, and in the end the foxes from the other side of the lake, on the pretext of supporting their fellow foxes, took over the whole area and forced the squirrels to scatter to the four corners of the forest.”The moral of the fable is that in a conflict, arbitration is to the advantage of the weak whereas in the law of the jungle (or forest) the strong will always win. But the Greek Cypriots, despite being the weaker party, have demonised arbitration and run the risk of suffering the fate of the squirrels. Why? A social psychologist would blame it on the persecution complex we suffer from. All football club bosses attribute their team’s defeat on the ‘massacre’ by the referee, making complete fools of themselves as in the long term all teams will be ‘massacred’ by a referee.We should turn to more serious issues than football – politics. All the UN secretary-general’s special envoys have proved, according to the warped imagination of the parties of the ‘in-between space’, “biased in favour of the Turks”. Just a few days ago, the Greens issued an announcement, endorsed by the rest of the parties of the ‘in-between space’, which said: “Mr Eide must immediately relieve us of his presence and be replaced by a truly objective official.”The definition of the ‘objective official’ is ‘someone who agrees absolutely with the positions of the Greek Cypriot side’. It is for this reason that all Eide’s predecessors – Al Downer, Alvaro de Soto and the others – were of course not objective but Turkophiles, Turk spawn, Turks and Turk-lovers. It would be interesting for a researcher to investigate whether this fixation of our politicians was conscious or subconscious, stated or underlying.Bearing in mind that the prospects of a successful completion of the negotiations are far from good, the only way to overcome the deadlock would be through acceptance of UN arbitration. The UN’s proposed settlement framework cannot ipso facto go against the convention of human rights. Whatever settlement is proposed would be better than the status quo. It is therefore a matter of urgency for President Anastasiades to rise to the challenge and strenuously demand arbitration.If we accept arbitration, the UN would first have to lock the convergences that have been achieved until now and focus on the issues on which big differences remain, that is, guarantees and rotating presidency.As regards guarantees, I believe there could be a deal as long as both sides are prepared to compromise. The Turkish Cypriots are being narrow-minded by ignoring the security worries of the Greek Cypriots caused by the Turkish invasion and their position that no modern state cedes intervention rights to another country. But it is also narrow-mindedness of the Greek Cypriots to ignore the 1963 syndrome of the Turkish Cypriots and their worries stemming from the Greek invasion that we called a ‘coup’. This is why the UN would possibly propose a transitional period over which guarantees would remain. The duration of this period would be decided by the UN.Regarding the other big issue – rotating presidency – it must be stressed that the constitution of the Cyprus Republic secures the political equality of the two communities and stipulates that representation (of the two communities) is ensured through discrete electoral procedures. The executive authority is shared by the Greek Cypriot president and the Turkish Cypriot vice-president. And because the Turkish Cypriot vice president could exercise the veto, it meant in effect that the Cyprus Republic from its establishment in 1960 until its collapse in 1964 had TWO presidents, even though one of them had the title of vice-president.In contrast to the two-ruler constitution of 1960, a rotating presidency with weighted voting would achieve political synergies between the two communities and the creation of bi-communal parties, as the president of the republic would be elected through a unitary election procedure. In such a case the extremist nationalist parties would be weakened substantially.The Greek Cypriots’ position – that symbolism at least dictates that the president of the republic should come from their community – is understandable to the UN. For us it is really a dilemma: do we want the greater political stability that would be secured by a rotating presidency, through weighted cross voting and a presidency with limited powers, or the continuation of the current system of essentially two presidents? The answer is not straightforward and it would be very helpful if there were a public dialogue on the subject. A dialogue without nationalist platitudes, bubbles, rhetorical fireworks, and, above all, without the division of people into ‘patriotic’ and unpatriotic’.George Koumoullis is an economist and social scientistYou May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
