Rif Protests Divide PJD Leadership Tension Increases Bteween Benkirane and Party

Rabat – Internal tension between the leading members of the Justice and Development Party (PJD) is mounting over the government’s management of protests in the Rif region and some are arguing it is undermining the party’s credibility and popularity.As media reports revealed, the meeting of PJD’ Secretariat General, the party’s executive body, on Thursday witnessed a heated debate between PJD leader and former head of government, Abdelilah Benkirane, and the current head of government Saad Eddine El Othmani, who was backed by party members of cabinet, in particular, Mustapha Ramid, the State Minister in charge of Human Rights.The meeting was the first held in two and a half months, a period during which Benkirane has remained noticeably silent regarding the developments that followed his dismissal by King Mohammed VI in March as appointed head of government and the nomination of El Othman in his place. Benkirane reiterated his previous criticism of the government’s management of the crisis in Rif, where protests have been dealt with a heavy security force presence. 93 protesters and leading activists of the protest movement, Hirak, are being prosecuted on serious charges of threatening the country’ security and territorial integrity by advocating for separatism.Large deployments of security forces in Rif cities, mainly Al Hoceima, the epicenter of the protests, toughened the population’s stance against the government and led to several clashes between protesters and riot police.Back in early June Benkirane criticized the government for accusing Rif protesters of separatism, calling it a “serious mistake.” The statement signaled a divergence inside the party charged with leading the government. The criticism was echoed on Thursday, prompting El Othmani and other ministers to respond.The head of government and his ministers lashed out at their own party,  accusing it of forsaking the government and leaving it alone in the face of public anger and what they called a “media campaign” targeting the party’s ministers and the government.The stormy meeting indicated that the PJD is undergoing unprecedented internal turmoil. While the party has traditionally sought to present an image of itself as solid and cohesive, the fact that no statement was issued following Thursday’s event highlighted the divisions inside the Secretariat General.A decision to add four members to the body, a move initiated by Benkirane, was unanimously adopted. The move was aimed at creating balance within the executive body where many of its members are ministers. Whether the latter accepted the suggestion out of conviction or consensus, remains to be seen.What is more important, is that the decision provided proof that Benkirane is taking matters into his own hands again, and could well be preparing for his re-election to a third mandate. This scenario, however, is rejected by his opponents with the Secretariat General who invoked the party’s internal regulations which clearly state no one can lead the party more than two terms.In order to bid for a third mandate, Benkirane would have to push for a change in the law, a task which might not prove overly difficult, given the large support he currently enjoys from the party’s base.Supporters of a third Benkirane mandate can back up their argument by pointing to the fact that he still has widespread appeal among the Moroccan public, clearly manifest by the way he is greeted as a “star” by citizens who never miss the opportunity to take selfies with the most popular politician in the country.His proponents also argue that Benkirane’s stance during the six months during which he tried to form a coalition, refusing to bow to the pressure put on him by the National Rally of Independents (RNI), has since been proven right.At the time, Benkirane refused the RNI’s condition to include two of his allies, the Constitutional Union (UC) and the Socialist Union for Popular Forces (USFP) in the coalition government. Benkirane maintained he only wanted a coalition of four parties, which included his two former allies in the previous government, the Popular Movement (MP) and the Party of Progress and Socialism (PPS), in addition to the PJD and the RNI.When El Othmani succeeded Benkirane as the appointed head of government, he and other PJD members and current ministers accepted the RNI’s condition. As a result, a loose coalition of six parties was formed. In addition to this, RNI ministers assumed key departments including Justice, Finance, Agriculture, and Trade, despite the party barely winning 36 seats in the last general elections, compared to the 125 seats won by the PJD.Now, as the stalemate in the Rif continues, it remains to be seen whether the crisis in the region will keep weighing down the party leading the government, as the PJD strives to make it clear that the treatment of the issue by El Othmani’s cabinet does not reflect the party’s position. read more

Top UN envoy to Somalia welcomes parliamentary review of media law

According to a press release from the UN Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM), President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo’s cabinet approved a package of amendments to the media law in July that fulfilled a commitment he made to Somalia’s leading media associations within weeks of taking office. The amendments drew criticism from those media associations and some international human rights groups for their limited scope and the introduction of new restrictions on existing press freedoms, the Mission noted.“A free and independent news media is essential for accountability and democracy,” said the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Somalia and head of UNSOM, Michael Keating. “Some provisions of the current media law do not appear to comply with international standards of media legislation and regulation. A careful and comprehensive review of the law and the proposed amendments will allow all key stakeholders to present their views. “I hope the outcome of such a legislative process will promote a better environment for Somali journalists to practice their profession without fear.”The proposed changes to the media law will be taken up by the Federal Parliament in the coming weeks. read more

Placido Domingo laughs with members of the Rockettes at New York's Radio City Music Hall, 1984 Placido Domingo laughs with members of the Rockettes at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, 1984Credit:AP Placido Domingo conducts at a Metropolitan Opera Rehearsal “Still, it is painful to hear that I may have upset anyone or made them feel uncomfortable – no matter how long ago and despite my best intentions.”I believed that all of my interactions and relationships were always welcomed and consensual. People who know me or who have worked with me know that I am not someone who would intentionally harm, offend, or embarrass anyone.”However, I recognize that the rules and standards by which we are – and should be – measured against today are very different than they were in the past. I am blessed and privileged to have had a more than 50-year career in opera and will hold myself to the highest standards.” “However, we have a zero tolerance policy towards harassment of any kind and recently refreshed our code of conduct to ensure all staff and visiting artists abide by the rules at all times. “We also have a Safeguarding Manager to enforce compliance, as well as an anonymous whistleblowing service to ensure that any incidents of misconduct are escalated and independently investigated. “Anyone at the Royal Opera House who feels they have experienced harassment is able to report it safely in the knowledge that it will be investigated and due process followed in every case.”The updated code of conduct was issued in March to all staff and visiting artists. In a statement issued earlier this week, Domingo said: “The allegations from these unnamed individuals dating back as many as thirty years are deeply troubling, and as presented, inaccurate. A Royal Opera House production of Don Carlo in 2013 A Royal Opera House production of Don Carlo in 2013 The Royal Opera House is to go ahead with planned star appearances from Plácido Domingo, despite American opera houses cancelling in the wake of sexual harassment allegations. The Covent Garden opera house said it had “not been made aware” of any accusations relating to the tenor’s time as an artist or conductor at the venue. Citing a “zero tolerance policy towards harassment of any kind”, it nevertheless confirmed that planned performances of Don Carlo in June and July next year would go ahead with Domingo playing Rodrigo, Marquis of Posa. Two US opera houses, the Philadelphia Orchestra and San Francisco Opera, have already cancelled performances by Domingo after the Associated Press published accusations of sexual harassment made by numerous women against him.The Los Angeles Opera opened an investigation into alleged events occurring during his time there. Domingo, 78, has rejected the allegations, calling them “deeply troubling and, as presented, inaccurate”. Placido Domingo conducts at a Metropolitan Opera RehearsalCredit:Getty Coming from eight singers and a dancer, all but one of whom are anonymous, the accusations span three decades and range from unwelcome touching to putting pressure on them to have sex.The Associated Press, which compiled the accounts, said that after decades of silence, women felt emboldened by the Me- Too movement which began in 2017 as an attempt to tackle sexual misconduct in the workplace.Domingo is due to appear at the Royal Opera House next summer for Sir Nicholas Hytner’s production of Don Carlo, a collaboration with Norwegian National Opera and the Metropolitan Opera in New York. The tenor made his Royal Opera debut as Cavaradossi (Tosca) in 1971 and has since sung 27 roles for the company.His latest appearances there saw him conduct Tosca in 2017/18, and sing Giorgio Germont in La traviata in 2018/19 last year. Asked about his upcoming performances, a spokesman for the Royal Opera House said: “The ROH has not been made aware of any accusations pertaining to Placido Domingo’s time as a visiting artist or conductor.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

IPL heavyweights Gayle and Malinga go unsold on day one

He was sold for INR 5.2 crore (USD 812,500 approx) after Kings XI Punjab offered the first bid of the morning with INR 2 crore. That set the tone for a frenetic day of bidding from Kings XI, whom bid more than any other franchise as well as missed on more players than any other franchise due to the others’ RTMs. At one point during the day, Kings XI made the winning bid five times in a row.Ben StokesOffspinner R Ashwin became the day’s first million-dollar player, going for INR 7.6 crore (USD 1.1875 million approx) to Kings XI – Super Kings could not use a RTM on him given they had already retained three capped India players in MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja before the auction.In all 16 RTMs were used on the day*, none more emphatically so than the one Mumbai used on left-arm spin-bowling allrounder Krunal Pandya. As expected, there was fierce and prolonged bidding for him, bumping up his base price a mind-boggling 22 times from INR 40 lakh to INR 8.8 crore. That winning bid was made by Royal Challengers Bangalore, but thwarted by Mumbai and their RTM. That meant Mumbai paid more for Krunal than they did for the third of their retained players, Jasprit Bumrah, whom they had kept on their roster for INR 7 crore before the auction. (ESPNcricinfo) Chris GayleChris Gayle and Lasith Malinga, arguably the highest-profile overseas batsman and bowler in seasons past, went unsold on day one of the IPL 2018 auction in Bengaluru. Gayle had set his base price at INR 2 crore (USD 312,500 approx) and Malinga at INR 1 crore (USD 156,000 approx), numbers that were breached several times in the sale of other players during the day.England captain Joe Root, who has never been part of the IPL previously, also went unsold – there had been questions asked ahead of the auction on whether the England players would be bought at the auction, given their availability issues. Unsold players could be called back into the auction on day two, if requested by any franchise.Another England player had no problems going for big bucks, though. Allrounder Ben Stokes was the biggest buy in the first round of bidding, going from a base price of INR 2 crore to INR 12.5 crore (USD 1.95m approx) to Rajasthan Royals – back from their two-year suspension for their role in the spot-fixing scandal of 2013. Questions remain over whether he will play in the IPL at all, though, as he faces charges of affray – if he is ruled out before the tournament begins, the IPL will allow Royals a replacement player.Lasith MalingaJofra Archer, the man from Barbados who is waiting to become eligible to play for England, attracted as much attention at the auction as he is doing on the field at the Big Bash League. Delhi Daredevils, Chennai Super Kings – also back from their suspension – Kings XI Punjab, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royals all bid for him, meaning his base price of INR 40 lakh ballooned 18 times to INR 7.2 crore (USD 1.13m approx) before he was secured by Royals.

TShirt Tuesday Best Transformers Shirts

first_imgBack in the days of geek prehistory, a T-shirt was a signal to the world around you that you cared about your nerdy pursuits enough to fly them like a flag. Companies like Graphitti Designs contracted with movie studios and comics publishers to create shirts with our favorite characters and sold them up on the walls of comic book stores and through mail order.The computer revolution has enabled the T-shirt world to become something totally new – affordable production and distribution means that shirts can be printed in small quantities and sold anywhere in the world. Starting with Threadless, dozens of companies popped up letting artists and designers show their stuff. It’s a better time than ever to be a geek fashionista, and if you’re looking to expand your wardrobe we’re going to help you out every week… on T-Shirt Tuesday.This week: eleven Transformers T-shirts that are more than meet the eye.Special bonus: until August 17, use the code GEEK25 to get 25% off of any shirt!Optimus PrimeThe visage of the Autobots’ iconic leader is one of the most comforting faces in the world, but Optimus Prime has gone through tons of changes in the last few decades. One of the most striking takes we’ve seen comes courtesy of artist Woah_Jonny, who brings a neon color palette and an explosion of texture and detail to render his face in a fascinating way. This is the kind of design that would fall apart in lesser hands, but he manages to make it work. Kudos.$20, buy it here.M.T.M.T.E.It’s impossible to hate the cute chibi-style Transformers from Mazzlebee that cover the front of this T-shirt. While a lesser artist would have them standing in formation, they knock out a huge range of body types, postures, and personalities. It really goes to show you how expressive these little plastic robots can be in the hands of a real artist.$20, buy it here.One Shall StandI love the contrasts in this design from manoystee – the alien-looking floral up against the mechanical lines of the Matrix of Leadership, accented by the hipster typography floating above but also interwoven into the overall composition. It’s a really ambitious and clever concept that’s executed to perfection. This is a rare deep cut shirt that true fans will recognize but still works as a conversation piece.$20, buy it here.Reservoir BotsOne of the coolest things about modern Transformers canon is that writers have brought a huge range of approaches to the universe, from brain-bending science fiction to more intimate, personal stories. Sure, Quentin Tarantino probably isn’t going to direct a giant robot movie anytime soon, but artist Samiel‘s take on the iconic Reservoir Dogs cast as Decepticons makes a great deal of sense.$20, buy it here.Trans: Off The RollThere are few logos more iconic in this world than the Autobot and Decepticon symbols, but that doesn’t stop clever artists from swiping from other ones. Case in point: manospd‘s cunning take on the Vans skate shoe with an Optimus Prime silhouette. It’s a goofy bridge between street style and geek fashion that works remarkably well.$20, buy it here.Rise UpEven though the franchise has been going strong for thirty years, Transformers will always be an 80s thing to us. That’s when America got their first look at the shape-changing robots, and the characters from that time are still the most memorable. So it makes lots of sense for artist vincent021 to grab some neon-toned Miami Vice accents for their striking portrait of Megatron.$20, buy it here.Sons Of EnergonSons of Anarchy went pretty far off the rails in its final seasons, for better or for worse, but at least they never had any of the Harleys transform into a wise-cracking robot. Artist BiggStankDogg speculates on what the logo for a biker gang of shape-shifting androids would look like, and we dig the authentic-looking weathering and primitive drawing style he brought to the project.$20, buy it here.Keep On Truckin’R. Crumb’s classic Keep On Truckin design – first published in 1968’s Zap Comics #1 – has been the source of literally thousands of parodies and take-offs over the years. Toyota even offered him $100,000 to re-draw it for a car ad campaign. Starting in the 1970s, the artist tried to crack down on copyright of the image, and it’s been a struggle ever since. Hopefully, artist RobotGhost changed it enough to get away with it, because we love this bigfooted take on the many hues of Optimus Prime.$20, buy it here.Rowdy Roddimus PrimeOne of the most notable missteps in Transformers history came with the replacement of Optimus Prime as Autobot leader. Hot Rod was a cool car, sure, but he wasn’t ready to take up the mantle of leadership and fans just didn’t buy it. One holdout, though, is artist devilchimp, who mashed his Prime form up with kilt-wearing WWF legend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper to make a shirt that cracks us up every time we look at it.$20, buy it here.BreakdownOne of the best things about a franchise based on a constantly-expanding toy line is that it creates space for a ton of fascinating characters. Everybody knows the big Transformers names like Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, but real fans have soft spots for the lesser lights as well. Designer Eph illustrates this magnificently with their loving portrait of Decepticon combiner Breakdown. Everybody has their favorite ‘bot, but they don’t all get T-shirts this cool.$20, buy it here.Dragon PunchLet’s close this out with a final look at the Transformers universe’s most storied rivalry, the eternal struggle between Megatron and Optimus Prime. Artist Gil made this design for a contest and decided to share it with the world on a shirt. The idea of Prime finishing off his enemy with a Shoryuken, Ryu-style, is the light of hope we need in this dark and disturbing world.$20, buy it here.last_img read more

Its scarves and soldiers in August 2016s SQUADRON Loot Anime crate

first_imgFor a country that can’t have its own military in the strictest sense, Japan loves anime about the military. It doesn’t even have to be about wartime drama or strategy on a realistic battlefield. It could be about high school girls engaging in varsity tank warfare. This month’s Loot Anime theme is SQUADRON, and it’s full of pseudo-military goodness.In terms of camo-wearing, rifle-hefting, saluting military things, the closest item in the crate is the phone charm, which looks like a set of dog tags. The rest of the crate is more about robots, magic, and general weirdness, but the theme still stands and the crate is still solid.The crate starts with two nice pieces of clothing. There’s an Anti-Magic Academy scarf in white, blue, and orange (the flag colors of the Republic of Portal) and a GATE t-shirt with the crest of the Empire.Gundam fans will be pleased by the inclusion of a Gundam Assault Kingdom trading figure. They’re not-quite-Gunpla figures about four-inches tall, with lots of articulation and decent detail for their size. I actually collected a couple before this crate; I already had Shining Gundam and Master Gundam from G-Gundam, and the crate added the Anti-Earth Union Group (A.E.U.G.) version of the RX-178 Gundam Mk. II.The crate also includes a manga, volume 1 of Arpeggio of Blue Steel, which is about a robotic fleet that blockades all the oceans of the world and the plucky sailors who fight it (and, of course, the android/AI who defects from the fleet to join them).That’s already a ton of stuff, but Loot Anime also threw in a paracord carabiner multi-tool thing from GATE. It’s not much of a multitool per se, basically just a bottle opener and a fixed-size wrench, but it’s still handy. Mostly for the bottle opener.last_img read more

What is the Industrys Hangup with eMortgages

first_img eMortgages technology 2016-08-26 Seth Welborn Share August 26, 2016 683 Views What is the Industry’s Hangup with eMortgages?center_img Federal housing regulators would like the industry to adopt eMortgages—which are mortgages in which critical loan documentation (specifically the promissory note, or eNote) is created, executed, registered, transferred and ultimately stored electronically—as the industry standard.But according to a joint outreach survey conducted by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac with industry stakeholders on state of the industry adoption, it may take a while.The GSEs, under the direction of their regulator, FHFA, as part of the 2016 scorecard, are charged with working together to identify, assess, and implement strategies (where appropriate) to improve the industry’s ability to deliver eMortgages. In the survey, the GSEs asked 130 stakeholders, including lenders, technology solution providers, servicers, title/settlement agents, warehouse banks, and servicers, on perceived obstacles to the industry’s adoption of eMortgages as a standard.The survey cited several factors that are driving the demand for eMortgages, which include: borrower expectations of faster, better, and more reliable service; a desire for more efficient processes and costs savings during the loan origination process, shorter timeframes from origination to sale into the secondary market resulting in greater liquidity; reducing interest rate risk and hedging costs; potential for reduced costs for warehouse lines; reduced cost for eNote certification and storage due to faster loan funding; and a reduction in the delays of loss mitigation activities.Despite the demand for eMortgages, which have been around since the 1990s, the industry has been hesitant to adopt them as the standard for a variety of reasons.“We found that eMortgage adoption continues to gain traction with lenders; however, the adoption has been slow due to various factors,” the GSEs stated in the report. “Ultimately, the survey showed that lenders are willing to spearhead the process while warehouse banks, servicers, and title/settlement partners will adopt when requested by lender partners.”According to the GSEs, concerns across the industry on the adoption of eMortgages include: acceptance by a limited number of investors; warehouse line availability; lack of readiness on the part of key stakeholders such as servicers, document providers, custodians, title/settlement agents); the complexity of implementation; inadequate return on investment based on industry volumes; lack of uniform adoption of eNotorization and eRecording; resource/financial constraints, and GSE policy alignment.Among lenders, one of the chief concerns was a lack of warehouse lenders, with one lender commenting that “Only a few warehouse lenders allow eNotes resulting in an added hurdle…the warehouse lenders will delay as long as possible since this changes their revenue model.” A lack of investor outlets was cited as another concern from lenders, with one lender noting, “Lack of other investors and possible execution outlets limit the correspondents. In addition, the fear is what if an investor will not buy the loan. How do you unwind and sell with limited outlets?” A lack of business partners was also a concern for lenders, with the comments ranging from “Custodians are not ready for eNotes” to “Technology required is developing at different paces.
