Moroccos Security Forces Work Toward Better PoliceCitizen Communication

Rabat- DGSN’s open days, themed “National Security, Citizen Police,” have opened the door for better communication between the Moroccan police and public.The General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) event at Bab Jdid square in Marrakech started on September 26 and is continuing until Sunday, September 30. The event has welcomed both tourists and citizens in the ocher city. So far, the open days have succeeded in bringing the public and police together for DGSN to become open to its social circle, inform the public of the missions of the various security units and corps, and show their advanced equipment.From how the police detect fake passports to how they deduce causes of death in crime scenes, DGSN members have explained their work to the public in live action.DGSN has conducted 56 simulation exercises, involving the cavalry, police dogs, biker brigades, a musical troop, the infantry brigade, and rapid reaction forces, in addition to parades and educational tours around the region for the benefit of school children.Entertainment programs and 29 stands have also been set up during the open days to teach the public about the police force and scientific support.At the opening of the event, the DGSN police commissioner in the Marrakech-Safi region said that the event mirrors a progressive change in the directorate’s strategy, moving from its first open days in Casablanca in 2017 to a culture of open doors to more communication on security action.The event has set its sights on completing 10 conferences to answer the public’s questions  on various security-related issues and the national strategy to combat terrorism and cybercrime, including more informative sessions, such as how DGSN conducts DNA analysis.Many attendees have given positive feedback about the event, both online and in interviews with Moroccan television channels. They expressed excitement and eagerness to learn about DGSN’s next displays.“I came to this event to discover the missions of the directorate, so that I and all youth can become active citizens in terms of security. The citizen should also collaborate with [DGSN] for the sake of national security,” one bystander commented in an interview with Moroccan channel 2M. Attendees can get information about the event’s programs from brochures and posters on site or the mobile application “JPO Police.”DGSN organized its first open days on September 14-16, 2017, in Casablanca’s International Fair under the theme, “National Security: Commitment and Loyalty.”Around 80,000 visitors, Moroccans and foreigners alike attended the first event.Hamid Bdri, police chief of Anfa district in Casablanca, said the first event in 2017 said came as a response to “those claiming that there is a gap between citizens and police.”“What is published in the media or what is said on social media gives the impression that there is a gap … We should lift all the hurdles that prevents citizens getting access to security services because those services are now a constitutional right,” he stated. read more

Durham cop sends hateful tweet

Ontario’s Ombudsman, Andre Marin, is speaking out after a member of the Durham police force sent a hateful tweet to him under a fake name.“These are pretty serious allegations.

DR Congo mass rape verdict fails to deliver justice to victims says

In the mass rape trial, which concluded on 5 May, the Operational Military Court in North Kivu condemned 26 members of the DRC armed forces (FARDC), including two for rape, one for murder and most of the rest on more minor charges such as looting and disobedience. Fourteen officers were acquitted.The Secretary-General’s Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict, Zainab Hawa Bangura, took note of the conclusion of the trial and expressed her disappointment at the verdict. “The Special Representative regrets that the verdict does not reflect the magnitude of the crimes of sexual violence that were committed and fails to do justice to all victims who had the courage to bring this case to court,” said a statement issued by Ms. Bangura’s office. Ms. Bangura saluted the bravery of the survivors and urged DRC authorities to pay reparations and take immediate measures “to protect survivors, witnesses, and the legal counsel who worked tirelessly to seek justice for the hundreds of survivors, as well as for human rights defenders who advocated for accountability.”A UN report on the incident detailed harrowing victim testimony and eyewitness accounts of mass rape and other gross violations of human rights perpetrated by the FARDC between 15 November and 2 December 2012 as the soldiers retreated after clashing with M23 rebel forces in North Kivu province.Earlier this week, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) expressed its disappointment at the ruling, saying that it fell short of the expectations of the numerous victims and confirmed the shortcoming of the country’s justice system. read more

Van Turnhout in discussions with Fine Gael over filling Mitchells MEP seat

first_imgSENATOR JILLIAN VAN Turnhout is in discussions with Fine Gael over the possibility of joining the party to run in the European elections next year and fill the seat being vacated by Gay Mitchell.TheJournal.ie understands that preliminary discussions have taken place over the possibility that the former head of the Children’s Rights Alliance, who was appointed to the Seanad by Taoiseach Enda Kenny in 2011, would join the party and run for the Dublin seat next year.Mitchell announced that he would not be contesting the next European elections earlier this month and a number of party members including two senators, a TD and Dublin’s Lord Mayor have emerged as possible successors.However, van Turnhout is also positioning herself as a possible candidate. It is understood that discussions over the matter will not be advanced until after the Meath East by-election which takes place next Wednesday.Van Turnhout did not wish to comment when contacted by TheJournal.ie this week.A spokesperson for Fine Gael said that “no decisions have been made” in relation to the elections next year, adding: “Senator van Turnhout is a fine parliamentarian, but remains an Independent to the best of my understanding.”Van Turnhout has previously been a member of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), a consultative body of the EU which represents employers’ organisations, trade unions and other interest groups at a European level.During her time on the EESC she was on the steering group of the EU Forum on the Rights of the Child and she would be seen as a key advocate for children’s rights at a European level if selected and elected to the European Parliament next year.Her Seanad colleagues, Fine Gael’s Catherine Noone and Eamonn Coghlan, are also said to be in the running for Mitchell’s seat with rebel Fine Gael TD Peter Mathews and Dublin’s Lord Mayor Naoise Ó Muirí also in contention.As a result of Croatia’s accession to the EU, the number of MEPs representing Ireland in the European Parliament will be reduced from 12 to 11 next year requiring a redrawing of Ireland’s European constituency boundaries.It is not yet clear what effect this will have on Mitchell’s Dublin constituency as it is currently constituted.Explainer: How will constituencies change now that Ireland’s losing an MEP?Read: Senators, rebel TD and Dublin Mayor in running for Mitchell’s MEP seatlast_img read more

Android handheld comes with 9 emulators looks like Wii U GamePad

first_imgAnother day, another Android gaming console/handheld. This time though, rather than a unit that is intended to only run Android games, the unfortunately named JXD S7300 HD Gamepad2 not only plays Android games, but comes with nine pre-installed emulators as well.First, the Gamepad2 comes stock with Jelly Bean 4.1.1, sporting a 7-inch 5-point capacitive display with a 1024 x 600 resolution. It has a 1.5GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU, a Mali-400 MP2 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of on-board storage, a front-facing camera, a USB port, an HDMI output that can display up to 1080p, two speakers, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, and pretty much the same buttons and layout of the Wii U GamePad. The Gamepad2 also sports wireless, 3G, and Ethernet connectivity.Though manufacturer JinXing Digital notes that the Gamepad2 can play over 100,000 Android games, the real gem is that it comes pre-installed with nine emulators, including the original PlayStation, Neo Geo, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo 64, Famicon, Super Famicon, Sega Mega Drive, and the Capcom Play System 1 and 2, which are arcade boards that used cartridges.The Gamepad2 also comes with the Superuser app, which allows the unit to be rooted.If this sounds like something you want to eventually prominently display alongside your Ouya and GameStick, you can snag one for $165.99, or you can include a 32GB microSD card for $186.99.

Infections nosocomiales bientôt un vaccin contre les infections au Clostridium

first_imgInfections nosocomiales : bientôt un vaccin contre les infections au Clostridium ?Aujourd’hui, le groupe pharmaceutique Sanofi a annoncé le lancement d’une étude de phase III de son vaccin contre la bactérie Clostridium difficile (C.difficile) responsable d’infections nosocomiales.Aujourd’hui débute le programme de phase III, baptisé Cdiffense du groupe pharmaceutique Sanofi. La division vaccins du laboratoire a en effet commencé à recruter 15.000 volontaires de plus de 50 ans pour procéder à des essais cliniques avant une mise sur le marché de son vaccin contre la bactérie Clostridium difficile (C.difficile) qui est responsable d’infections nosocomiales (notamment intestinales et mortelles chez environ 10% des personnes infectées). À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Le risque de contracter le C. difficile augmente avec l’âge, les traitements antibiotiques et la durée des séjours à l’hôpital ou dans les maisons de soins, où le nombre de cas peut provoquer des épidémies”, souligne Sanofi. Le vaccin en cours d’élaboration est donc “conçu pour aider à protéger les individus à risque”. Une prévention d’autant plus importante que des souches résistantes ont commencé à faire leur apparition.Comme le souligne le Dr John Shiver, senior vice-président pour la Recherche et le Développement, “avec l’apparition de souches de C. difficile plus difficiles à contrôler au cours des dernières années, les infections sont devenues plus fréquentes, plus graves et plus compliquées à traiter, ce qui soulève des inquiétudes concernant les méthodes de contrôle et de prévention de la transmission”.Les essais cliniques se dérouleront sur 200 sites répartis dans 17 pays et visent à “évaluer l’innocuité, l’immunogénicité et l’efficacité” du vaccin, indique le groupe pharmaceutique.Le 5 août 2013 à 14:39 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

San Diegans to dial 10 digits for all calls starting today

first_img KUSI Newsroom, May 19, 2018 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — San Diegans have to dial 10 digits for all calls — even local ones — starting Saturday.Callers with area codes 619 and 858 will have to enter the area code for all calls. Landline callers will have to dial one first, then the area code and phone number.The change is the result of an overlay of the two area codes approved by the California Public Utilities Commission last year.The 619 area code had been expected to run out of prefixes next year, while the 858 area code was forecast to have about 30 years’ worth of prefixes left, according to the Utilities Commission.As a result, state regulators in April 2017 approved a proposal to remove the boundary between the two area codes.The former area code until Saturday covered the southern half of San Diego County, while the latter covered the northern part of San Diego and some North County cities, including Poway and Del Mar.Existing phones will keep their current numbers, but future phone customers in the newly combined 619/858 zone could be assigned numbers from either area code, regardless of where they live.It’s not the first such arrangement in the region. In 2009, the 442 area code was created as an overlay with 760, which spans from North County to the Imperial and Coachella valleys, as well as much of the Mojave Desert.

What Is AI and Will It Take Over Your ServiceBased Business Job

first_img How Success Happens 5 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. June 14, 2019 Most factories make use of machines in the production process and, as a result, lots of people have been put out of work. But are service-based businesses about to face a similar fate? Will you be replaced by a robot one day?That particular question has likely brought chills down many people’s spines, but could this really be the reality we’re facing? Imagine all the different kinds of service-based jobs poised to crumble because some app or robot can do the work faster than a human would.Let’s say you normally hire tutors to help your children with their homework, perhaps from a service-based business that has a good track record and high success rates among users. All of that could change in a flash with AI —  in fact, that is one of the reasons why some people are scared of AI in spite of how fascinating it is.Related: Why Businesses Keep Failing to Make the Most of AIHow would you feel if your child asked help from Alexa for their homework? The virtual assistant is fast becoming a staple among homes; you surely can’t stop your child’s urge from asking, “What’s 5 minus 3?” can you?These days all the child has to do is take a picture of their math homework, and an app can instantly tell whether the answer is right or wrong. AI also allows apps to recommend courses to users based on their level of progress in those subjects, and, if that’s not enough, it also knows what kind of questions teachers give out as assignments.What is AI?Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science developed with the objective of creating intelligent machines that can mimic human behavior and the ability to make decisions. In essence, these programs are able to study our behavior and make decisions as if we’re the one making them but, of course, a lot faster.Related: 5 Future Jobs You’ve Never Heard of But That Your Kids Will Flock toSince AI “learns” our behavior, it’s not limited by the programmer’s code. So, in a sense, it’s able to grow in knowledge on its own as we keep using it.Will AI take over service-based business jobs?There have been a series of debates on whether AI will take over jobs or not. A study by Boston Consulting Group predicted that by 2025, a quarter of jobs will be replaced by either smart software or robots. Kai Fu Lee, a renowned AI expert and venture capitalist, believes that 40 percent of the jobs in the world will be replaced by robots.Without a doubt, AI is gradually infiltrating and disrupting different industries, including healthcare and banking. But you mustn’t forget that machines have their limitations. Although technology has advanced to the point that software mimic humans, they can never totally take our place. In fact, AI will help create more jobs than it seeks to eliminate. You may need to acquire new skills, but it doesn’t mean that you’ll be replaced.Related: 4 Ways Artificial Intelligence Is Shaping the Future for Businesses Big and SmallSo, in essence, even if you use AI to help your child with their homework, it will not entirely take away the jobs of tutors who will teach kids. There will still be a need for tutors to dictate what standard is expected of students — and maybe even tutors would delve into developing AI that will help tutor kids.It’s all in how you choose to handle the technological changes that come your way. Outrightly rejecting or fearing technology won’t secure your job, but if you could develop your skills and knowledge to go along with the change in technology, then there is no way you’d be out of work. The beauty of service-based businesses is their ability to easily pivot and evolve. This kind of flexibility will work in your favor with the advancement of AI. AI is artificial; it’s not naturally intelligent yet.The final verdictAI is a bittersweet topic. On one hand, it’s one of the best innovations the world has ever seen. And on the other, it could be what brings to an end a lot of businesses because it’s smarter, faster and more efficient. However, saying AI will take away most people’s jobs is an exaggeration. It will surely change the way you do business, but it will not take away all jobs. So, there’s really no need to panic.Related: Robots Are Stealing Our JobsAll you need to do is grow and adjust to the new technology instead of fighting it. You’ll only have cause to fear when you don’t evolve with the technology.
