Rabat – 190,000 fans attended Akon’s concert in OLM Souissi on Wednesday in Rabat, Mawazine organizers said.Akon delivered his second performance – the last one was in Casablanca nine years ago. During the concert, Akon added an African flavor to his international show and thrilled the audience with his melodic voice and rhythmic dance influenced by Africa’s rich, cultural diversity.“Moroccan fans are the most authentic and the craziest,” he said. Many of the fans were from sub-Saharan Africa and the flag of Senegal was seen floating near the podium. Morocco’s famous producer Redone attended the press conference during which Akon revealed his intentions to collaborate with Redone in his upcoming album scheduled for release at the end of this year.Akon showed his love for Moroccan fans in a madcap scene when he rolled into a transparent ball between the masses to excite spectators. Among the songs performed at the concert were “Ghetto,” “Sorry, Blame It On Me,” “Lonely,” “Smack That,” and “Work Hard.”Akon celebrated his African roots singing “Oh Africa” and praised the beauty and richness of the continent in “Mama Africa,” before the concert concluded with the rhythms of “Freedom,” a song which tells the story of the life of immigrant families in the United States and his attachment to his country of origin.The Senegalese-American musician was born in 1973 in Missouri, United States. His real name is Badara Akon Thiam. He studied music in Dakar under the tutelage of his father, Mor Thiam, a prominent jazz musician. At age fifteen he wrote and recorded his first song in New Jersey.
Rabat – The High Commission for Planning (HCP) has reported a sharp slowdown in national economic growth in 2016 to 1.2 percent versus 4.5 percent in 2015.This decline was attributed in particular to a marked decrease in rainfall, which has affected the growth of agricultural activity, while non-agricultural activities continue to show a moderate growth rate. The HCP noted a 12.8 percent decline in value added by the agricultural sector (excluding fishing), compared to a 11.9 percent increase in 2015 and a 2.2 percent growth in value added from other non-agricultural sectors instead of 1.8 percent one year earlier.“Economic growth has been driven by the final consumption of households and investment in the context of controlled inflation and a growing need for financing of the national economy,” noted the HCP in the closure of the accounts of 2016. This decline is also attributable to an increase of 8.5 percent in volume of net taxes on subsidies on products instead of 18.1 percent in the previous year. In this context, the growth rate of the gross domestic product, excluding agriculture, fell from 3.7 percent in 2015 to 3.1 percent in 2016, highlighted the HCP.At current prices, GDP grew by 2.8 percent in 2016 compared to 6.8 percent a year earlier, generating an increase in the general price level of 1.6 percent instead of 2.1 percent.However, Morocco’s investment effort has been made clear, showing a 9.3 percent growth rate in 2016. The sharp decline in national economic growth versus the increase of investments confirm the recent World Bank findings showing that in Morocco, investment is severely lacking in efficiency, since it does not translate into gains in terms of economic growth and job creation. The Bretton Woods institution has also shown that Morocco’s investment effort since the 2000s is enormous, averaging 31 percent of GDP, while its performance is still low.The HCP’s overview of the evolution of the national economy in 2016 also reveals another remarkable and persistent observation: the domestic economy is based on domestic demand. In 2016, it rose by 5.5 percent, compared with 1.9 percent in 2015, driven in particular by the “considerable increase” in investment and the improvement in consumer spending on households. These increased by 3.4 percent in 2016 compared to 2.2 percent in 2015, contributing 1.9 percentage points to GDP growth instead of 1.3 percentage points in the previous year. Similarly, public administrations final consumption fell to 2.1 percent compared to 2.4 percent in 2015, with a 0.4 percent contribution to growth. Gross fixed capital formation (investment) achieved significantly better results, with a 9.3 percent increase instead of a near-stable one year earlier, contributing with 2.6 points in 2016 economic growth compared with 0.1 point in 2015.In these conditions, the contribution of domestic demand to GDP growth was 5.9 points instead of 2.1 points in 2015. On the other hand, external trade made a negative contribution to GDP growth In the order of -4.7 points in 2016 instead of a positive contribution of +2.4 points a year earlier. This sharp upturn in investment is supported by the 27.5 percent surge in imports of capital equipment and the 11.7 percent jump in equipment loans to MAD 158.01 billion in 2016.

With several Asian and North African countries expected to be polio-free within months, regional health ministers today joined a United Nations-led eradication initiative to announce a two-pronged strategy to “mop up” new cases and to help put countries in West and Central Africa back on track to stamp out the virus.According to the World Health Organization (WHO), recent figures show Asia and North Africa together reporting only 21 cases of polio in 2004, compared to 94 this time last year. And with the all-time low levels of polio in Egypt, Afghanistan, India and Pakistan, four of the six remaining endemic countries are on track to meet the target for stopping the spread of the virus by the end of the year.Heath Ministers from those countries announced an accelerated strategy to “mop-up” each new virus. Under this ambitious initiative, each new poliovirus found will trigger two massive, tailored immunization campaigns in response, targeting between one and five million children, before the virus has the opportunity to spread.The picture is a bit more challenging for countries in West and Central Africa, due in part to an ongoing outbreak originating in northern Nigeria, where immunization campaigns have been suspended since August.A joint statement from the spearheading partners of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative warned that countries in the region, particularly Nigeria and Niger, will need different strategies to bring the regional eradication programme into line with the progress in Asia this year.WHO, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Rotary International and the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said that the spread of virus from Kano, Nigeria, across the region and into Central Africa already cost $25 million for emergency campaigns in 2003. Ramping up agency responses in the area will cost even more.The new strategy for the African region includes the reintroduction of a mass, synchronized immunization campaign across 21 countries by early 2005, if not sooner. This strategy will be supplemented, where appropriate, with mop-up campaigns around any importations.The statement adds that an understanding was reached and signed between the Kano state government and federal authorities earlier this month on the required conditions for restarting the polio immunization activities there. As these conditions are now being met, preparations are being made to support full catch-up immunization campaigns in Kano, ahead of the nation-wide activities in September, October and November.
Senior midfielder Yianni Sarris looks for a teammate during a game against Akron on Sept. 24 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU lost, 3-1.Credit: Ben JacksonAlex Ivanov seemingly can’t catch a break. Following a 10-save losing effort on Sunday, Ohio State’s redshirt-senior goalkeeper faced 12 shots on goal in Ohio State’s 3-1 loss to Akron on Wednesday night.The Zips (4-2-1) peppered the Buckeyes (2-2-3) with an offensive onslaught that handed OSU its first home defeat of the season. Coming off a 1-0 loss to then-No. 10 Penn State, the Buckeyes’ attempt to regain momentum was stifled by Akron’s potent attack.“Akron’s always really good at keeping possession in the final third,” OSU junior midfielder Zach Mason said. “They’re just a dynamic team and they’re always tough to play against.”Scoring opened 12 minutes into the match when Akron redshirt-freshman forward Sam Gainford poked a nine-yard shot past Ivanov.The game’s first goal put OSU in a hole, senior midfielder Yianni Sarris said.“We just need to learn that we can’t have a goal scored against us in order to wake up,” Sarris said. “We need to get at teams from the beginning and just go at them.”The Buckeyes found an equalizer just over four minutes later when sophomore forward Danny Jensen saved a throw-in headed for the byline and curled a tight-angle shot past Akron junior goalkeeper Jake Fenlason.Unfortunately for the Buckeyes, they fell back asleep after leveling the game.The Zips took their second lead of the game in the 35th minute when freshman forward Stuart Holthusen fed a pass to junior forward Sean Sepe, who beat Ivanov with a choppy shot to the far corner of the net.“Giving up that second goal kind of deflated us,” Mason said.Akron entered halftime with a 2-1 lead, outshooting the Buckeyes, 10-6, before the break.Aside from a couple chances, the next 45 minutes didn’t bring much for OSU in terms of offensive success.“I think we just ran out of juice after a while,” Mason said. “That can happen when you’re down.”The Buckeyes managed one shot on goal in the second half while the Zips posted four and stretched their lead to 3-1 in the 76th minute.OSU junior defender Liam Doyle had a chance to make it 3-2 from the penalty spot in the 83rd minute, but Fenlason made the save to preserve his team’s two-goal advantage.Akron generated the majority of its chances through the center of the field, something OSU coach John Bluem said he was not surprised to see.“(Akron) is very disciplined in their attacking play,” Bluem said. “It’s hard to stop them from playing.”Despite the result, Bluem said he was pleased with the turnout for a game played in memory of Connor Senn, a former Buckeye who passed away after collapsing during a game against Akron in 2001.“It’s good that the tradition of this game has carried on for so long now,” Bluem said. “The students were wonderful in their support of the game tonight.”The game was preceded by a flyover and moment of silence in Senn’s honor.OSU looks ahead to a tough stretch of its schedule next. The Buckeyes are set to play three ranked teams in their next five games including matchups against No. 9 Louisville, No. 16 Michigan State and No. 17 Indiana.The Buckeyes are scheduled to play Dayton in Dayton, Ohio, on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
Ohio State head men’s volleyball coach Pete Hanson will be inducted into the USA Volleyball Hall of Fame in Columbus on May 22. Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsAfter 35 years as the head coach of the Ohio State men’s volleyball team, Pete Hanson announced his retirement on Thursday. In his storied coaching career, Hanson has led three Ohio State teams to an NCAA Championship — in 2011, 2016 and 2017 — has been named the National Coach of the Year three times and has recorded 712 career wins, the third-most in NCAA history. “I will certainly miss Ohio State and the volleyball program, but I will never forget it,” Hanson said in a release.Hanson has also been inducted into three Hall-of-Fame classes: the American Volleyball Coaches Association in 2015, the Ohio State Athletics in 2017 and the USA Volleyball in 2019. “Being in the Hall of Fame once obviously is a feat in and of itself. To do it three times is something just surreal and something crazy,” senior setter Sanil Thomas said. “I think what you wouldn’t expect is the same — I would imagine, the same amount of passion he brought day one he brings that passion day — a lot; it’s a lot of days. That’s why he deserves this more than anyone.”In Hanson’s tenure as head coach, the Buckeyes won the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association regular season title 18 times, over half of the total seasons he had coached. In his 34 years, he has been awarded as the MIVA Coach of the Year 13 times. However, much of the impact Hanson has made is reflected in the players he coached. Hanson has coached 13 MIVA Player of the Year award winners, 17 players who ended up playing professionally and 17 players who competed for their national team. “The legacy of Ohio State volleyball was and has been built by all of those fine young men that wore the Scarlet and Gray,” Hanson said in a release. “I am forever indebted to them, as they helped to ensure that Ohio State volleyball remained one of the most respected programs in the country.” Hanson also made an impact off the court and into the classroom. More than 200 of his players have earned Academic All-Big Ten honors, and, in the past 10 years, 65 percent of his players have earned Ohio State scholar-athlete recognition. “His impact far exceeds the men’s volleyball program, and even Ohio State Athletics, making a positive difference to collegiate volleyball across the country,” Ohio State deputy director of athletics and men’s volleyball administrator Janine Oman said. “The development of young men has always been paramount to Pete, equipping them to lead successful lives.”But on the court, especially inside St. John Arena, Hanson made his lasting mark. In his tenure, Ohio State has recorded six undefeated seasons at home and one 42-match winning streak, the longest in Ohio State history for a head-to-head sport. “Pete Hanson’s Buckeye career embodied our mantra of ‘The People. The Tradition. The Excellence,’” Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said in a statement. “He’s found success on the court and molded young men off of it, preparing them for life after college. Pete leaves a lasting legacy at The Ohio State University.”
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/01/24/ridiculous-999-call-ever-woman-calls-emergency-services-broken/ Paramedics took a man who posed as a stroke victim to hospital only for him to leap up and thank them for the free lift, it has emerged.The North West Ambulance Service lashed out at the man for wasting valuable time and resources.Describing the incident on Twitter, they revealed that they responded to a call by the would-be patient who claimed to have lost “sensation” in his legs.Fearing he may have a critical circulation problem or have suffered a stroke he was rushed to the unnamed hospital by medics.But on arrival, he walked out beaming and admitted he was fine and just wanted a free lift to visit a friend on one of the wards.The public expressed horror at his actions, suggesting that he should be named and shamed and that the police should have been called. One Twitter user wrote: “That little stunt could ultimately have cost someone a life.”Shaun Gerrard, an emergency medical technician with NWAS, described the callout in a message that was shared by the official NWAS account.He wrote: “A patient rang for an ambulance last night as he had reduced sensation in his legs and mobility was poor. “We took him to hospital for him to then get up and walk off on arrival.”He admitted he faked the whole lot just to get a lift to hospital to see his friend!”The service has said this is what it has to deal with “day in day out” and that the police had not been involved as there was no law against wasting ambulance time.Call handlers for the service answer upwards of 50 calls during their 12-hour shifts, many of which relate to serious and life-threatening emergencies.Yesterday (Thurs), the NWAS urged members of the public to only call 999 if there’s a genuine emergency.The service recently revealed that one caller dialled 999 to request shopping and a shower.Last year, the NWAS marked the 80th anniversary of the 999 emergency number by releasing audio of some of the more bizarre calls taken.These include a man who tries to order an ambulance in advance, saying he “might need it later,” another man who said he “just wanted to go home” and a woman whose dog has been run over.Ged Blezard, director of operations at NWAS, said: “Our call centre staff work very hard and play a vital role in the care of our patients. “There are people alive today because of their actions.”
Aker Wirth has received an order from Saudi Arabia to supply 11 piston-diaphragm pumps to Ma’aden Bauxite & Alumina Co for its refinery project. Eight pumps will be used as tube digester pumps in the Bayer process, and will pump the bauxite ore at a temperature of around 100°C. Three pumps will pump red mud to the disposal site, again at a temperature of around 100°C. Red mud is the waste product generated during digestion of bauxite. Each pump is driven by a 1,500-kW motor and has a total weight of some 105 t.Within the framework of its joint venture, WorleyParsons Fluor from Brisbane, Australia is responsible for the entire project engineering, along with the construction of the facility in Saudi Arabia.Aker Wirth says the reference “for this job is the Rio Tinto Yarwun alumina plant in Gladstone Yarwun/Australia, which is also using the Bayer process. At Yarwun 1, eight Aker Wirth pumps of identical type have been used for years with much success. Aker Wirth has delivered ten further pumps of this type to Yarwun 2, and these will shortly be put into operation.”
It’s unclear at this time just how many within NJMG’s magazine group will be affected. The flagship (201) Magazine enjoys a monthly circulation of around 50,000 across Bergen County, about half of which is unpaid, according to data from the Alliance for Audited Media. Those figures have generally held steady for the past several years. 426 employees across the entire company will receive state-mandated layoff notices by week’s end, but according to Gannett East’s northeast regional president, Tom Donovan, only about half of them will actually be out of a job. The other half will be placed in “newly defined news and advertising roles.” The less-fortunate will be dismissed by mid-November. North Jersey Media Group (NJMG), publisher of local newspapers The Record and Herald News as well as the monthly (201) Magazine and a litany of sister-titles, will soon lay off about half of its overall workforce, the company announced today. The group also publishes, with varying levels of frequency, (201) Gold Coast, (201) Family, (201) Home, and (201) Bride, as well as a handful of once-annual issues such as (201) Health and (201) Dining. The restructuring, according to NJMG, is aimed at further shifting the company’s focus to digital media. The news comes just over a month after USA Today and Asbury Park Press owner Gannett purchased NJMG from the Borg family, which had owned The Record since 1930, for an undisclosed sum. Representatives for both Gannett and NJMG were not immediately available for comment. “Since Gannett’s July acquisition, we have recognized that NJMG must transform even faster to meet the ever-changing demands of readers, advertisers and the communities we serve,” said Donovan in a prepared statement. “In response, we are reinventing our newsroom, sales team and other business divisions.”

Listen Share To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: NASA Goddard MODIS Rapid Response TeamHurricane Harvey is seen from NASA’s Aqua satellite moving over Texas and Louisiana on August 30, 2017.In August, after six months of gain, the nation’s industrial sector output was down .9%, and Hurricane Harvey is partly to blame.The Federal Reserve Bank says within this sector, the refining and petrochemical industries took the biggest hits from the storm. Harvey had at one point impacted almost 30% of the nation’s total refining capacity. Mining saw a .8% percent loss in August, largely thanks to Harvey halting oil and gas drilling in South Texas and in the Gulf.Ed Hirs, who teaches energy economics at the University of Houston, says the industrial downturn will likely be short-lived.“As the plants come back online, they will pick up producing and manufacturing really about where they were, because Harvey did not destroy any of the economic engine,” he says.It wasn’t just Harvey that hit the industrial sector: recent mild temperatures in the Northeast cut demand for air conditioning, which dropped output from utilities there. And Hirs says after Harvey and Irma, we might even see a brief industrial rebound, as Texas and Florida dig into the long task of rebuilding. X 00:00 /01:00

Share Zillow: Home Values Reach 8 1/2-Year High Home values rose for the 15th consecutive month in January, according to “”Zillow’s””:http://www.zillow.com/ most recent Real Estate Market Reports.[IMAGE]Zillow’s Home Value Index (HVI) rose to $158,100 in January, up 0.7 percent from December and 6.2 percent year-over-year. The 6.2 percent annual gain is the largest since July 2006, when home values reportedly rose 7.5 percent year-over-year.According to Zillow, the last time national home values were at this level was in June 2004.Out of the 30 largest metro areas covered by Zillow, 27 showed monthly home value appreciation. San Francisco led the way with a 2.0 percent gain, followed by Tampa, [COLUMN_BREAK]Florida (2.0 percent); San Diego (1.8 percent); Riverside, California (1.7 percent); and Sacramento (1.5 percent).On an annual basis, every one of the cities tracked in the report posted gains. The biggest yearly improvement occurred in Phoenix, Arizona, which saw a 21.9 percent increase. The next biggest cities for annual value gains were San Francisco (17.2 percent); San Jose (16.8 percent); Las Vegas (16.2 percent); and Sacramento (13.7 percent).””The winter months are typically when things cool off in the housing market, but high demand and continued tight inventory in many markets have helped keep things at a boil through the early part of 2013,”” said Dr. Stan Humphries, chief economist at Zillow. “”Demand will continue to be high throughout 2013, which will help home values and rents alike continue to rise.””While Zillow’s HVI recorded substantial gains, the Rent Index saw a seasonal monthly decline, dropping 0.2 percent to a value of $1,271. Year-over-year, national rents were up about 4.3 percent in January.While foreclosure activity has seen a drop-off in recent months, Humphries noted that it still remains high and should create a dual effect of nurturing rental demand (as displaced homeowners seek new lodgings) and adding supply to many markets.

in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News The aggregate amount of negative equity in residential homes nationwide has either declined or stayed flat for 18 consecutive quarters, primarily due to 52 straight quarters of home price appreciation.The number of underwater homeowners in the third quarter of 2016 (5.3 million) is about one-third of what it was at its peak in Q1 2012 (15.7 million), according to Zillow’s Q3 2016 Negative Equity Report. Those 5.3 million underwater mortgages represent about 10.9 percent of all homeowners nationwide.A wide chasm remains between negative equity in the lowest-valued homes and the highest-valued homes, however. According to Zillow, 16.9 percent of homes valued in the bottom third of the market had negative equity in Q3, while only 6.8 percent of homes in the top third were underwater—and this gap exists despite home values rising more quickly among homes in the bottom tier.Demand has been high for lower-valued homes due to investors looking to buy and rent, and first-time buyers looking to cheaply enter the housing market, according to Zillow. But while demand has been high, supply has been low due partly because builders have not been able to meet the needs of first-time entry-level buyers and partly due to negative equity, which makes it difficult if not impossible for the underwater homeowner to sell.The high demand, low supply scenario has resulted in greater price appreciation, according to Zillow.“This is true overall, but particularly at the low end of the market,” Gudell said. “As of the end of Q3, home values among bottom-tier homes were rising 9.2 percent per year, more than double the annual rate of appreciation of top-tier homes over the same time (4.3 percent). As a result, negative equity receded more quickly in Q3 among bottom-tier homes than it did among top-tier homes.”The gap in negative equity between the top third and bottom third is much wider than the national average in several of the largest 35 markets analyzed by Zillow—for example, in Detroit, the spread is more than 34 percentage points. The gap is more than 20 percentage points in Cleveland, St. Louis, Atlanta, and Chicago, according to Zillow.Negative equity in the bottom third can have a trickle-down effect—for starters, in most cases, it prevents the homeowner from refinancing to obtain a lower rate or selling their home, Zillow reported.“Finally, this inability to either refinance or sell a distressed home, coupled with the fact that home was more likely to be less valuable to begin with, increases the likelihood that a homeowner will fall into foreclosure – which impacts their neighborhood, credit and personal and inter-generational wealth,” Gudell said, noting that of all residential foreclosures in the U.S. since December 2006, nearly half (46.7 percent) were in the bottom third of home values, while the top third accounted for only 16.6 percent of foreclosures in the last decade.However, Gudell noted that the trend of receding negative equity “should continue as the recovery marches on, setting the market on more solid footing throughout 2017 as the roadblock that is negative equity is slowly dismantled. For those at the bottom, however, it just may take longer.”Click here to view the complete report.
