We call on Yehya Saud, the parliamentarian behind the protests, to stop this harassment. And we will hold the government to the pledge it gave today to end the violence against the media.”Saud organized a demonstration yesterday outside the French embassy in Amman to call for the AFP bureau’s closure and Habib’s resignation. The day before, she organized a protest outside the AFP bureau, at which Habib was called a “creator of lies” and the Jordanian prime minister was given 24 hours to have her fired and taken before a military court. Around 10 people tried to force their way into the bureau.In all there have been five demonstrations outside the AFP bureau and the French embassy, as well as repeated direct threats against Habib and attacks on premises. On 15 June, around 10 men forced their way into the AFP bureau and destroyed furniture and equipment. The authorities are investigating but so far with no results.The anger against AFP was triggered by a 13 June report of an attack on the king’s motorcade, which was immediately denied by the government.

Investigators search for armed sexual battery suspect

first_imgAuthorities in Miami are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect who reportedly sexually assaulted a woman in her hotel room and pointed a gun at her head.Officials met the victim at Mount Sinai Medical Center Wednesday afternoon where she reported the incident.The woman told authorities that she originally met the man while walking on the beach outside of the Century Hotel where she was staying. The two exchanged numbers and she agreed to meet him at her hotel room to have sex. The woman told authorities that she later changed her mind in the room when he told her he did not have a condom. At that point, the woman told authorities that the man began yelling at her and calling her names before he choked her and sexually assaulted her.The victim says she then went to the restroom to “clean herself off” but did not take a shower and when she returned the suspect had a gun pointed at her head and screaming something she did not understand.Eventually the victim was able to get in touch with a hotel employee. That’s when the suspect ran out of the room still yelling at the victim.The Miami Police Department is currently working with the Broward Sheriff’s Office and the Doral Police Department to find and identify the suspect as he is believed to have committed crimes in their county.

Pensioner dies in Corriverton fire

first_imgAn early morning fire on Wednesday at Scottsburg Corriverton, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) has left one person dead and five others homeless.Dead is 85-year-old Stanley Brown of Scottsburg, Corriverton.Stanley Brown and his granddaughter Faydeha King (Miss Earth Guyana 2019) in happier timesBrown, an amputee, was trapped in the upper flat of a two-storey house while his wife, 77-year-old Maurvette Brown, had to jump through a window from the upper flat to escape the flames. The couple’s daughter, Carol Melville, along with her husband and two children – ages 11 and 18 — are also now homeless.The Browns lived on the upper flat while the Melvilles lived on the lower flat of the house.The couple had been married for 56 years.Initial investigation revealed that the fire started in Stanley Brown’s bedroom then spread to his wife’s room.Maurvette told Guyana Times that she heard her husband calling her but she could not get into his room because it was padlocked.Stanley was attacked by bandits several years ago and since then, he kept several padlocks on both the front and back doors of the upper flat. He also kept his room padlocked when he went to bed. All of the windows were also barred, except one which was in Maurvette’s bedroom.The burnt two-storey buildingMaurvette said that after she was alerted about the fire, she could not get to her husband’s bedroom through the door.She said that she begged him to get her the keys but he could not find them at the time. The pensioner explained that she had to break through the wall separating the two rooms in order to get to her husband, who was in danger. She said that by the time she got into the room it was filled with thick smoke.“I throw the water but it couldn’t do anything,” she explained.According to the visibly shaken woman, she was then forced to start taking evasive actions.In an attempt to get Stanley away from the flames, she took him into her room; however, because of the flames, she had to jump to safety but her husband was unable to do the same. His remains were later found in the building.“The heat was too much,” the elderly woman recalled. Having jumped 14 feet to safety, she was taken to the Skeldon Hospital, where she was treated.Meanwhile, 18-year-old Tyreese Smith said he heard his grandfather calling his grandmother and attempted to make his way upstairs but the doors were locked.The teen said that his mother had left a few moments before for a trip to Georgetown while his father had gone to work.“After my mother left, I was on my phone playing because I couldn’t go back to sleep, and then I hear my grandfather calling for my grandmother, ‘Maurvette,’ so, I want to know why he calling for her so early and that I hear my grandmother shouting and I get up and run upstairs and asked them what going on and I try to open the door,” the teen said.He recalled hearing his grandmother shouting for the keys.“So, I run downstairs and go to the back door and then I see the fire coming through the window. I start kicking the door but I could not get it open,” the teen said.He said two neighbours rushed to their assistance, but they too were unsuccessful in getting the door open.“Because the door get so much of locks it not opening and by the time other people come the house was already in a big flame so nobody could not do anything,” he revealed.Meanwhile, as the fire spread throughout the building, neighbours formed a bucket brigade and began socking another house nearby.A unit from the Corriverton Fire Station arrived about 15 minutes after the fire started.It is believed that a lighted candle caused the fire. Reports are at the time of the blaze there was a power outage in the area and Stanley may have lit a candle.Brown was a boiler operator at the Skeldon Sugar Estate.His body is currently at Bailey’s Funeral Home of Number 4 Village, West Coast Berbice awaiting a post-mortem examination.Persons who may wish to get in contact with the family can contact them on telephone number (592) 673-5597.last_img read more

Green pilot project on Robben Island

first_imgThe island, situated 12km north ofCape Town, is poised to become a leaderin green self-sustainability.(Image: South African Tourism)MEDIA CONTACTS • Derek BatteWorking for Energy+27 10 201 4714 or +27 741 012 938RELATED ARTICLES• Powering towards a green economy• Mandela: a remarkable 92 years• From Liliesleaf to Robben Island• World Heritage in South Africa• SA to produce more solar energyApril McAlisterThe South African National Energy Research Institute (Saneri) and the Department of Energy (DoE) have launched a pilot project aimed at turning Robben Island into a self-sufficient community that runs on green energy.By using a hybrid approach to power generation, the Greening of Robben Island project will reduce the demand on the island’s infrastructures and its dependence on fossil fuels.In 1999 Robben Island was inscribed on Unesco’s list of world heritage sites. As such it holds distinct historical meaning for South Africa and is a popular tourist destination.Initially it served as a training and defence station during the Second World War. Later it was a place of quarantine for those suffering from leprosy, and in 1961 it became a penal colony for political prisoners.Now it is to become the model for self-sustaining communities in South Africa and the Southern African region.In Saneri’s 2009/10 annual report, the organisation’s CEO Kadri Nassiep described the Greening of Robben Island as a flagship project for Saneri, and one that is expected to thrust the island into a position of energy leadership for other South African communities, especially those which have limited or no access to the national grid.Nassiep hopes to be able to reveal some of the technology in time for the 2013 meeting of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Cape Town.Renewable energy sourcesThe Robben Island team is investigating the development of micro-hydroelectric, biomass, wind, solar and possibly wave technologies, with a view to rolling them out in other parts of the country where appropriate. The team hopes to begin infrastructure installation during 2011, although the time frame is dependent on funding.Despite an earlier political hiccup which resulted in temporary suspension of the project, it is now going ahead, according to senior manager Derek Batte of the DoE.The project is expected to produce about 600KW from its various energy sources, which will replace the two diesel generators that currently power the island, resulting in an expected monthly saving of around R450 000 (US$64 500).A smart grid, currently in development at the University of Cape Town, will coordinate energy generation from the various sources and manage its distribution. All houses and buildings are to be fitted with energy efficiency technology, including solar water heating.The notorious Western Cape wind will be harnessed not by conventional wind turbines, but by vortex turbines, which, according to an October 2010 Financial Mail report, are smaller, less intrusive and operate without masts and rotors.Hydropower is used for desalination and for the production of energy. Micro-hydropower installations are capable of providing power to a small community and are found around the world. They provide an economical resource without the need to buy fuel and in many instances, complement photovoltaic systems when solar energy is diminished.The clearing of alien vegetation, bush encroachment and certain grasses, as well as household waste, will provide the biomass which in turn will power biogas generation. This takes place in an anaerobic digester and produces a combination of methane and carbon dioxide, which can then be used for heating and cooking, as a fuel source, or to drive an energy-generating turbine.Projects such as these are undertaken in many parts of the world and on different scales. According to Batte, South Africa can play a major role in this development space.A virtual model of the island is available on the Robben Island Museum website and those interested will be able to follow the project’s progress online from April 2011. The website will also provide real-time energy generation figures.Optimal energy consumptionThe Robben Island project falls under the Working for Energy programme, presented by former finance minister Trevor Manuel in his 2008/9 budget vote.This is a joint project involving the DoE and Saneri, a body established in 2004 under the guidance of the Department of Science and Technology and the Department of Energy. Saneri is a subsidiary of the parastatal Central Energy Fund.Starting with a modest budget of R5-million ($717 000) in 2009/10, Working for Energy was developed to use and distribute potential hybrid, renewable and alternative energy technologies in an effort to cut down on fossil fuels, generate more power for South African communities, and reduce associated costs.The project’s budget for 2011/12 is a more substantial R25-million ($3.6-million) and signifies the government’s commitment to developing South Africa’s clean energy industry.It mirrors the successful job creation concept of other environmental initiatives such as Working for Water, Working for Wetlands and Working for Fire. Job creation is sustained through use of labour-intensive practices, helping to boost skills transfer and develop local economies and capacity.last_img read more

South Africa turns out for fifth democratic elections

first_img7 May 2014 South Africa’s fifth national and provincial elections were proceeding “smoothly, peacefully and briskly” overall, Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) chief electoral officer Mosotho Moepya reported shortly after 11am on Wednesday morning. “Shortly after the scheduled 7am start of voting, 89% of the 22 263 voting stations had reported opening on schedule,” Moepya told journalists at at the Independendent Electoral Commission’s (IEC’s) central Results Operation Centre in Pretoria. “This had increased to over 95% by 9am as election staff reported in on the system following the opening rush.” He said voting stations that had experienced opening delays were in the process of opening by 11am, attributing the delays in some areas to the late delivery of voting material. Strong winds in George and Atlantis in the Western Cape, and Upington in the Northern Cape, had also damaged tents used as temporary voting stations, causing delays in those places. Moepya said isolated protest action had affected the opening of voting stations in Maruleng in Limpopo, Gugulethu in Springs, Botshabelo in the Free State, eNgcobo in the Eastern Cape and Barcelona in Khayalitsha in the Western Cape. “We also received a report of an accident involving an IEC area manager near Gariep in the Free State. The manager was not severely injured and we wish him a speedy recovery. “We have also had a report of an accident near Barkley West in the Northern Cape in which a party agent died and another was critically injured in an accident on their way to a voting station. We would like to express our condolences to their families,” he said. Moepya thanked residents in areas that had been identified as election “hotspots”, saying voting was proceeding smoothly in these areas. “The Electoral Commission is pleased to report significantly fewer incidents of community protest action affecting the voting process early today, with voting proceeding calmly although quietly in many previously affected areas. “We would like to thank those communities for working with us to allow voting to proceed. This includes Sterkspruit in the Eastern Cape, Bekkersdal in Gauteng, and Malamulele in Limpopo.” Source: SAnews.govlast_img read more

IDC Predicts Windows Phone Will Beat RIM & Apple by 2015

first_imgRelated Posts No, that’s not a typo. Analysts at IDC are now forecasting that the Windows Phone mobile operating system will be the number two smartphone platform by 2015. And Android will be number one. “Android is poised to take over as the leading smartphone operating system in 2011 after racing into the number two spot in 2010,” says senior researcher Ramon Llamas. But it’s Nokia’s recent shift from Symbian to Windows Phone that will have the biggest impact on the market going forward, Llamas believes.Android #1, Windows Phone #2By 2015, IDC projects that Windows Phone 7 will have an install base of 20.7% of smartphones, behind Android at 45.4%. iOS will be in third place at 15.3% and RIM’s BlackBerry will be at just 13.7%. Symbian, meanwhile, will have fallen to just 0.2% of smartphones worldwide, IDC says.In the near-term, Android will power 39.5% of smartphones by the end of 2011, while Symbian drops to 20.9% by year-end, IDC says. Apple’s iOS will be at 15.7%, RIM at 14.9% and Windows Mobile/Windows Phone 7 will be at 5.5% in terms of smartphone market share.Overall, the worldwide smartphone market is expected to grow 49.2% in 2011, with smartphone vendors shipping 450 million units this year, up from the 303.4 million units shipped in 2010. The smartphone market will grow more than four times faster than the overall mobile phone markets, notes IDC. Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#Microsoft#mobile#news#Trends Are You Buying This?ZDNet’s Matthew Miller hesitates to believe these 3-year forecasts, considering the rapid changes seen in the mobile industry today. “Microsoft and Nokia could break up if things don’t work out,” he remarks.Engadget’s Vlad Savov questions the numbers, too, reminding readers that IDC’s forecasts haven’t always been accurate. “While the new prediction sounds very reasonable today, four years of unknown unknowns is a mighty long time to try and forecast,” writes Savov.  “We have a feeling we’ll be looking back and chuckling at this within a few short months,” he says.In addition, we have to point out a minor inaccuracy on IDC’s part. “Windows Phone 7” is not what Nokia is calling the OS on its own hardware. “We were deliberate about using just ‘Windows Phone’ so as to not specify any version of that platform,” Nokia PR rep Karen Lachtanski told us recently. “That wording is agreed upon between the two companies.”We suppose that might be splitting hairs when it comes to market share numbers, but we thought it was worth a mention. sarah perez What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …last_img read more

Boston: Lighting the Way as a New Kind of Tech Town

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Boston has long been associated with beacons and lanterns, and even today the reputation holds. Only now Boston is lighting the way for a new community: tech. Never content to live in the shadows of more significant tech enclaves like Silicon Valley and New York, Boston has returned to its “founding fathers” roots. Today the city has reinvented itself — becoming a magnet for innovative companies and supportive founders who are burning up the status quo.  Bright minds: Boston’s serial founders know how to succeed.Boston is full of baseball and universities and history and clam chowder — but it’s also full of another iconic group: serial entrepreneurs. There’s a welcoming group of successful business founders that keep coming back to Beantown to foster entrepreneurship and support for small businesses. Sharon Kan — PepperlaneAmong the premiere founders listed here, is Sharon Kan, CEO, and Co-Founder of Pepperlane. Kan has built four successful startups that were acquired by Oracle, Microsoft, Infor, and Barnes & Noble. Sharon Kan also co-founded WIN, the Women Innovating Now Lab at Babson College in Massachusetts — to help female entrepreneurs start their businesses. The mother of two daughters, Kan founded her current company, Pepperlane, to help mothers turn their skills and ideas into businesses that fit into their lives. “Boston is one of the most active startups and tech markets with incredible talent. Four amazing female entrepreneurs co-founded Pepperlane,” says Kan. “One of the reasons I started Pepperlane in Boston is to showcase the power of female-led companies.

Today more than 200,000 SMBs use Privy’s highly targeted pop-ups, banners, and bars to grow their email lists and increase online sales. Jabbawy says Boston’s background in cutting-edge technology helps fuel the new business economy: “Boston is the founding hometown of so many companies that have paved the way for small business innovation. So the talent pool here explicitly focused on small business, is second to none. “Combine that expertise with our world-class universities and a strong presence of venture capitalists and angel investors, and you have the backbone of an incredibly supportive, entrepreneurial environment.”Kate Winget — GradifiOne of those trusted leaders is Kate Winget, Chief Sales Officer at Gradifi, a company that helps employers create financial benefits for student loans, refinancing, and college education. An active member of the startup ecosystem, she mentors and advises several early-stage companies in the greater Boston area. Winget also serves as a mentor at Northeastern University. Winget believes the supportive nature of Boston’s tech community is what sets it apart: “The Boston startup scene is competitive, but in the sense that we all push each other to grow and succeed. It’s refreshing, really — like good-natured sibling rivalry.”  Illumination station: A global hub for Digital Transformation.Digital transformation has become the hot topic du jour as companies of every stripe embrace a digital future. Today’s businesses are updating their tools and processes with modern technology to meet changing business and market dynamics.

It’s part of what makes working in a thriving tech center so exciting.” Progress for Digital TransformationMarie Rosecrans — SalesforceStartups aren’t the only ones reaping the benefits of Boston’s growth. The digital transformation push has been instrumental in luring software giants like Salesforce, too. “Boston has always been a center for innovation and technology, and the recent rise in digital transformation has been inspiring,” says Marie Rosecrans, SVP of SMB Marketing at Salesforce. “It was a no-brainer for Salesforce to strengthen our presence here.” To that end, Salesforce is hosting one of its acclaimed Growth Camp events in Boston on June 5 at District Hall in Boston. Any startup or small business looking for free help, advice, and resources is invited to attend for free. Enlightened community: A brilliant startup ecosystem.And Boston wouldn’t be the thriving tech hotspot it is today without its boisterous and tight-knit startup ecosystem. Just ask Stephanie Roulic, Founder and Lead Organizer at Startup Boston, an all-volunteer team mission-driven to grow Boston’s startup scene. “Boston has everything going for it — the people, the skills, the growth market,” says Roulic. “I may be biased, but in my eyes, there’s no greater place to start a business right now,”Adding some structure is Mass TLC, the largest and most powerful technology association in the region. MassTLC’s mission is to accelerate growth, innovation, and the development of an inclusive tech ecosystem in Massachusetts. Light it up: Boston is a beacon for new technology and startups.Boston has always loved its reputation as an original. Its current status as a unique east coast technology center is no exception. While Boston has always been a stomping ground for universities and big business, tech companies and entrepreneurs have realized there’s a lot to like about the city, community, and culture. Is Boston ready to be the new Tech Town? All signs point to the affirmative. Maybe that free Salesforce Growth Camp conference can help you get in on the action.
