In 1979 King Juan Carlos Was Ready to Hand Melilla Back

Rabat – Spanish author and historian Charles Powell has reopened the Ceuta and Melilla pandora box in his latest book, “King and Democracy”, uncovering a prickly file Spain had wanted to keep secret for a very long time.In April 1979, King Juan Carlos was willing to cede the city of Melilla to Morocco and put Ceuta under the control of an “international protectorate.” The shocking revelation was made during a meeting between the King of Spain and US Senator Ed Muskie, personally sent by US president Jimmy Carter at the time, said Europa Press.Muskie was to meet with several regional officials to discuss the problems faced by Europe at the time, reports Europa Press Agency. In a document that was declassified in 2014, we learn that the Spanish king was considering a cession of the two cities. Spanish author Charles PowellIn his book, Powell narrates how Juan Carlos disclosed his intentions to Muskie in an hour and a half-long conversation, assuring his interlocutor that “the real conflict with Morocco is the two enclaves.”These words had been sealed since the late 1970s, but three years ago with the publication of the book, they finally came out to the world. US Ambassador Terence Todman wrote at the time:“The great question between Spain and Morocco is that of the two Spanish enclaves. Juan Carlos considered that Melilla could be ceded to Morocco in a rather short time because 10,000 Spaniards only lived there. The King of Spain acknowledged that this question could displease the army but that the situation could be managed quite easily.”The case of Ceuta is more problematic. Sixty-thousand Spaniards lived there, a figure too large to decide whether they should return under Moroccan sovereignty. For Juan Carlos, the best solution was to have a status similar to that of Tangier, where the city had earlier been administered by a “commission of several European countries.”Juan Carlos also feared a second Green March. He was worried that King Hassan II would organize a second Green March for both cities as he had done to recover the Moroccan Sahara a few years earlier.Hassan II and Juan CarlosJuan Carlos’ fears were well placed. Just nine months before the Green March, Morocco was engaged on another front to decolonize its northern territories. On January 27, 1975, Morocco addressed a memorandum to the special decolonization committee of the UN, asking for the retreat of Spain from Ceuta, Melilla, Canary Islands and the Rock of Badis.“Ceuta is the Heart of Spain!”The breakout of the news provoked the anger of the main parties of Ceuta, in particular the Caballas coalition and the Movement for Dignity and Citizenship (MDyC) represented in the local assembly, who demanded clarification from the royal house and claimed their attachment to the irreversible Spanish character of the two cities, reports the Europa Press AgencyThe government spokesman was quick to react, A few hours after the news emerged, he denied the information, saying that “the central government does not value documents on this subject from the archives of the United States” and stating that the position of Spain Always has always been sound and clear.The president of the government of Melilla Juan José Imbroda reiterated his invitation to King Felipe VI to visit the presidency. According to him, this would be the best answer to be given to the Spanish character of the city. “It does not matter if the royal palace publishes a statement about it, the important thing is that Felipe VI visits Melilla,” he concluded. read more

Ontario unveils plan to sell marijuana in LCBO stores when pot is

TORONTO — Ontario is the first province out of the gate with a detailed plan to sell and distribute recreational marijuana when Ottawa legalizes it next summer.The Liberal government announced Friday that it will sell marijuana in as many as 150 dedicated stores run by the province’s liquor control board. Those looking to purchase marijuana when it becomes legal across the country will be subject to the same age and usage restrictions currently in place for alcohol, said Attorney General Yasir Naqvi.The process of purchasing recreational cannabis will closely mimic the one currently in place at the Liquor Control Board of Ontario.Naqvi said residents 19 or older will be able to purchase marijuana at separate retail outlets or through a website run by the LCBO that should be ready for business by next July.Consumption of legal weed will not be allowed in public spaces or workplaces and should be confined to private residences, Naqvi said. However, he said the government will explore the possibility of allowing marijuana-licensed establishments in the future.The province expects to have all the stores operational across the province by 2020, with the first 40 stores opening next summer. Those stores will only sell marijuana and not alcohol.The federal government introduced legislation in April with a goal of legalizing and regulating the use of recreational pot by July 1, 2018, but left it up to individual provinces to design their own distribution system and usage regulations.Ontario has jumped ahead of most other provinces and territories, many of which are either in the early stages of crafting their legalization frameworks or have just started public consultations. Last Friday, a special legislative committee tasked with examining how New Brunswick will set up its framework released a set of recommendations. That province has yet to implement those recommendations.In July, Canada’s premiers told the federal government they needed more time to get their rules in place before Ottawa went ahead with the marijuana legalization. They asked for clarification around road safety and enforcement, preparation and training on distribution, taxation, public education, and the impact legalization might have on the black market.But despite the concerns, Ontario is moving ahead and Naqvi said the time-tested model at the LCBO made sense as a blueprint for cannabis in the province.One of the government’s priorities, he said, involves clamping down on illegal distribution channels. He made it clear that will include dispensaries that have cropped up in recent months in anticipation of widespread legalization.“Illicit cannabis dispensaries are not legal now and will not be legal retailers under the new model,” Naqvi said. “… These pot dispensaries are illegal and will be shut down. If you operate one of these facilities, consider yourself on notice.”Naqvi said setting the minimum purchasing age at 19 is intended to protect youth from potential drug use. The new regulations, however, will also contain language allowing police to confiscate small amounts of pot from those under 19 without incurring criminal charges.Asked about expected revenues, Finance Minister Charles Sousa could provide no estimates, saying the market conditions and federal tax levels will impact the bottom line and are unclear.“Frankly, this is uncharted territory and we’re going to have to monitor it and see how it develops,” Sousa said.He said the government has been working on the pot file for about a year.“We are running out of time,” he said. “We have to be prepared by next year.”Cannabis activist Jodie Emery predicted Ontario’s plan will limit the supply of marijuana in the province and will contribute to the growth of the black market.“I’ve been worried from the beginning that the so-called legalization is nothing more that Prohibition 2.0 with cops and politicians looking to make money themselves,” Emery said.Sousa could not say what the start-up costs for the stores will be but expects they will be recovered over time.He said legislation regulating the control of marijuana will be introduced in the fall.Ontario’s opposition parties both panned the government plan. Progressive Conservative community safety critic Laurie Scott said the government must have strong measures to crack down on drug-impaired driving and to address concerns raised by public health officials.“We are calling on the (Premier) Kathleen Wynne government to ensure that law enforcement, public health and local communities are properly consulted and have the tools they need as the Liberals roll out this proposal,” Scott said in a statement.NDP attorney general critic Gilles Bisson said the government has failed to deliver a comprehensive plan for safe marijuana distribution.“Now, we’re left to ask if the number of locations is correct, where they’ll be located, how communities will be involved in the decision process, and how pot products will be priced and taxed,” Bisson said.The federal government has pledged to work with provinces and commit resources to pot-related needs like public security, policing and educational campaigns. On Friday, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Ralph Goodale said the federal government will spend $274 million to bolster law enforcement and border efforts to “detect and deter” drug-impaired driving and enforce the proposed cannabis legalization and regulation.“We are working closely with our partners to ensure law enforcement is well trained, to build capacity across the country and at our border, and to raise awareness about the dangers of drug-impaired driving,” Goodale said in a statement.— With files from Michelle McQuigge read more

Reds Homer Bailey Throws 7th NoHitter of Season

It was the fifth inning Friday night when Homer Bailey looked up to see how many innings he had pitched. He learned something more: that he had not given up a hit to the Pittsburgh Pirates.Bailey did not let that news change the way he pitched. Instead, the 26-year-old stayed the course and spun baseball’s seven no-hitter of the season, as the Reds won 1-0.“I looked up at the scoreboard (after the fifth inning) to see if I had hit 200 (innings) and saw a couple of zeros,” Bailey said. “That’s when I knew I had a chance at a no-hitter. It’s not something you think about doing.”It was the 15th no-hitter in Reds history and first since Tom Browning’s perfect game against the Los Angles Dodgers on Sept. 16, 1988. The seven major league no-hitters match the modern record for one season, tying 1990 and 1991. There were eight no-hitters in 1884.“I don’t think there is any reason why there have been so many,” Bailey said. “There is a real fine line there in throwing a no-hitter. A bloop can fall in the outfield or an infielder can be in the wrong position and there goes your hit. You have to be extremely fortunate to throw a no-hitter, and we had luck on our side tonight.”Bailey (13-10) struck out 10 and walked one. He threw 115 pitches and retired the side in order in the ninth, striking out pinch-hitter Brock Holt and inducing Machael McKenry and Alex Presley into pop outs. Bailey was mobbed near the mound by happy teammates and doused with water.Bailey improved to 5-0 with a 1.40 ERA in six career starts at PNC Park. All three of his complete games and both his shutouts have come against Pittsburgh.It was the first time the Pirates had been held hitless since Hall of Famer Bob Gibson pitched the lone no-hitter of his career in 1971 for the St. Louis Cardinals. Cincinnati, which clinched the NL Central title last Saturday, improved to 95-62. The Reds are tied with Washington for the best record in the NL. read more

Two Russian spies expelled from the Netherlands over Novichok lab hack plot

The Federal Prosecutor’s Office (BA) revealed that it had been separately investigating the pair for a year before they were arrested.The Skripals were poisoned in Salisbury on March 4.Novichok samples used in the attack were tested at the UK defence laboratory in Porton Down before being collected by inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on March 19.The inspectors also collected blood samples from Mr Skripal and his daughter Yulia, who at the time remained in a critical condition under heavy sedation in hospital, to conduct their own analysis. Sergei and Yulia Skripal  Sergei and Yulia Skripal  Ruslan Boshirov, left, and Alexander Petrov give an interview to the RT news channel Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Two Russian spies were arrested in the Netherlands in the immediate aftermath of the Salisbury poisonings as they allegedly attempted to hack into the computers of the Swiss laboratory analysing the Soviet-developed Novichok, it has emerged.The pair were detained in the Hague and extradited back to Russia following an intelligence operation run in conjunction with British, Dutch and Swiss agents.Their arrest in March is said to have been directly linked to the world-renowned Spiez laboratory near Bern that tested the military-grade nerve agent used in the attempted assassination of former Russia spy Sergei Skripal.Several sources told Swiss newspapers Tages-Anzeiger and the Tribune de Genève that the pair were arrested on suspicion of preparing to target the lab.They reportedly had equipment in their possession which would allow them to break into its computer system.The arrests throw a further spotlight on the two countries to which Mr Skripal’s would-be assassins travelled several times in the months leading up to the attack, increasing suspicions that they could be key locations for Russian agents embroiled in the plot. Flight records obtained by the Telegraph show that Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov made at least six separate trips to Geneva between November 2017 and February this year. The Spiez laboratory subsequently confirmed British assertions that the Skripals had been targeted with Novichok. The laboratory has also been investigating poison gas attacks by the Syrian regime, which is backed by the Kremlin.

He did not disclose the source of his information.The Swiss facility vehemently denied the claims, revealing that BZ was only used in the lab as a counter sample to Novichok.Swiss authorities revealed in July that the lab had been targeted by hackers believed to be linked to the Russian government, although it is not known if the expulsion of the two spies from the Netherlands was linked.The March arrests were not made public at the time although at the end of the month, Mark Rutte, the Dutch Prime Minister, announced the expulsion of two diplomats who worked at the Russian Embassy in The Hague, saying that “Holland had had enough”.

Former President Ramotar to testify in Red House lease challenge

Former President Donald RamotarFormer President Donald Ramotar is expected to testify in the ongoing High Court challenge against President David Granger’s revocation of the 99-year lease granted to the Cheddi Jagan Research Centre (CJRC) commonly referred to as ‘Red House’.Ramotar’s presence was requested by Attorney General Basil Williams earlier today when the matter was heard before acting Chief Justice Roxane George at the High Court.Lawyer for the Cheddi Jagan Research Centre, Attorney Anil Nandlall, did not object to the former President taking the stand.Ramotar, a former General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), had previously disclosed that he approved the 99-year lease in his capacity as President. When the matter is called again on November 1, Ramotar will be cross examined on the granting of the lease.In late December 2016, President David Granger gave the occupants of Red House 48 hours to vacate the premises. The Research Centre was established in 1999 to promote research into and publish materials on the life, work and ideas of late President Dr Cheddi Jagan.The prime land on which Red House sits was leased to the CJRC Inc for 99 years for G$12,000 per year.However, the Coalition Administration was initially averse to the small fee being charged and had started engaging the directors of the Research Centre on the possibility of transforming the Red House into a hub for all former Presidents.The Management Committee, which included former President Ramotar, had strongly objected to this move, following which the current government deemed the lease invalid and subsequently moved to revoke it.This eventually caused the Cheddi Jagan Research Centre Management Committee to approach the High Court for a declaration that the lease is valid and that the manner in which the President moved to revoke the lease was unconstitutional.

Terri Horman agrees to quick divorce

first_imgPORTLAND — Terri Moulton Horman and Kaine Horman met in family law court for the first time today since Kaine Horman filed for divorce and obtained a restraining order against his wife.Terri Horman’s divorce attorney, Peter Bunch, asked the judge to hold the divorce proceedings in abatement while the criminal inquiry proceeds, but Kaine Horman’s attorney is fighting any delay.Bunch argued that a parallel civil divorce case, while the criminal investigation proceeds into Kyron’s disappearance from Skyline School, would jeopardize Terri Horman’s Fifth Amendment rights not to incriminate herself.“Everything at issue in the divorce is fodder for the state in its forging of additional links in its evidence,” Bunch said. “Virtually anything she says can be used by the state….The state has the ability to obtain every single bit of information that is produced in this case and that is outside the bounds of what it could do were this proceeding not occurring.”Further, Bunch argued that if the divorce proceedings were allowed to proceed, he’d instruct Terri Horman to invoke her Fifth Amendment rights not to incriminate herself.last_img read more

Hold Until Sober Law Goes In Effect January 1st

first_imgAccording to Micciche, the law was written to allow DOC and the courts to use their discretion in a “case by case” basis: “They have the right to detain someone until they are below the legal limit of intoxication in the state of Alaska.” The new law will go into effect on January 1, 2018. Senator Peter Micciche (R-K-Pen): “The number one priority right now for the legislature is public safety. The reason for this change is not only to protect the intoxicated from themselves, but also to protect the public.” Story as aired: Sen. Micciche: “It’s been placed into law, and it allows Department of Corrections and the courts to hold an intoxicated person until they are below legal limit for intoxication.”  Written in section 27 of the bill, ‘correctional facility shall, at the time of release, conduct a chemical test of the breath of a person who has been arrested and who is intoxicated and may detain the person until the test result indicates that the person’s breath has less than 0.08 grams of alcohol for each 210 liters of breath or, with the consent of the person, release the person to another person who is willing and able to provide care for the person.’ According to Senator Micciche, the legislature has done the necessary research and believes the law holds “muster” and will “bolster” public safety.

Yuvraj Singh predicts World Cup 2019 finalists identifies Indias Xfactor

first_imgIndian cricket teamRobert Cianflone/Getty ImagesSpeaking on the role of MS Dhoni, Yuvraj said that the seasoned campaigner has a lot to offer to the Indian team as he is in form and his inputs to captain Virat Kohli in pressure moments will be invaluable.”Yeah, definitely. He’s been such an experienced captain. There will be these situations where he will be discussing with Virat how to get the best out of the situations,” Yuvraj assessed.. Yuvraj Singh, who stole the show back in the 2011 World Cup, believes India have a great chance to repeat the feat this year in England. He also identified England and Australia as the other teams to watch out for and picked India and England as the two finalists. He also said that the conditions and regulations are very different which have made a score of 300+ competitive as compared to 260-270 which allowed teams to win games earlier.”It’s a different ball game now. (Now) five fielders (are) in (the circle); those days there were four. Scores of 260, 270, 280 were competitive scores. These days the competitive scores have become 300-plus. Because of that one fielder. I feel we still have that unit where they can chase anything. And India has been playing really well in the last 2-3 years,” Yuvraj was as quoted by Hindustan Times.Australia have a good bowling attackThe southpaw believed with the return of David Warner and Steve Smith, Australia have a strong unit, more so because of their rounded and strong bowling attack.”I feel India and England have a very good chance of making it to the final. Australia, yes, since (David) Warner and Steve (Smith) came back; they also have a very good bowling attack. These three teams are pretty much likely to be in the last four,” Yuvraj further added. Yuvraj Singh.Reuters.He, himself, was India’s X-factor back in 2011 and now the batsman believes India are well-served as far as match-winners are concerned. He earmarked Hardik Pandya to be the man who could be the difference on the day.”I think the X-factor in this World Cup is going to be Hardik (Pandya). He’s currently on form and batting well. And is someone who’s very helpful with the ball. In those conditions, if we play two fast bowlers and two spinners, you have Hardik as your third seamer. It gives the right balance to the team,” Yuvraj said.last_img read more

UPDATE Texas AM Cancels Planned White Nationalist Rally

first_img Blueag9 | CC BY-SA WikipediaTexas A&M University late Monday abruptly canceled a planned white supremacist rally on its campus next month, amid bipartisan pressure from state lawmakers who said hatred should be rejected in all forms — despite First Amendment protections.An announcement on the House floor by Republican Rep. John Raney said A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp had opted to scuttle the event set for Sept. 11 because of concerns police would be stretched thin providing security. The A&M System confirmed the cancellation and was working on a statement.A former A&M student named Preston Wiginton had been organizing a “white lives matter” rally in College Station, Texas, saying he was inspired by Saturday’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, when a vehicle plowed into a group of counterprotesters, killing at least one and injuring 19.Wiginton said he’d invited prominent white nationalist Richard Spencer to address the Texas rally. Spencer spoke at an A&M event in December, when he was met by hundreds of protesters, many of whom gathered at Kyle Field football stadium to hear music and speeches highlighting diversity and unity to counter Spencer’s appearance.Word of the cancellation came hours after Dallas Democratic Rep. Helen Giddings gave a House floor speech while nearly all of the chamber’s 150 members stood beside her. She urged university administrators to “unequivocally denounce and fight against this violent group” adding “all of us in the state of Texas want to say with one voice, Texas will not stand for hate.”Rep. Paul Workman, an Austin Republican, added that a petition being circulated for A&M graduates in the House was attempting to “keep this from happening on our campus.” The chamber then held a moment of silence for victims killed and injured in Charlottesville.Similar sentiments came from the Texas Senate, which also held its own moment of silence.Sen. Charles Schwertner, a Republican whose district includes College Station, has said he had planned to attend a counter protest of the A&M rally.Although the group may be allowed to meet on campus, Schwertner said, “The First Amendment also allows us to respond in kind, to stand up and say what we believe as a society, as Americans and as Texans. We should not stand for bigotry, for violence, for racism.”Sen. Royce West, a Dallas Democrat who is black, said he’ll also go to the Texas A&M campus on Sept. 11.“We will do everything in our power to make sure those days gone by will not be repeated. I’m confident they won’t be,” he said, recalling the Jim Crow-era of segregation and discrimination. “We will stand strong against those hate groups, neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan.”West added: “My 17-year-old grandson asked me yesterday, ‘Should my generation be more like Martin Luther King or Malcom X? I had to pause and listen to the hurt in his voice and doubt in his ability to pursue the American dream.

July 18, 2013 — Two reports from AmericanEHR Partners, based on a survey of nearly 1,400 physicians, suggest that tablets are of greater use for clinical purposes than smart phones.”Mobile Usage in the Medical Space 2013″ and “Tablet Usage by Physicians 2013” reveal that the most common activity of physicians who use an electronic health record (EHR) and use a smart phone or tablet is “sending and receiving e-mails.” The second most frequent activity among tablet users is accessing EHRs (51 percent daily). Just 7 percent of physicians use their smart phone to access EHRs. Among physicians who have an EHR, 75 percent use a smart phone and 33 percent use a tablet, but time spent on tablets is 66 percent higher than time spent on smart phones.”These two reports provide useful insights into how physicians use technology to interact with patients, physician satisfaction with mobile devices and apps, and the differences of technology use within various user demographics,” said Thomas Stringham, co-founder of AmericanEHR Partners, which provides comprehensive information to support clinicians in the selection and use of EHRs to improve healthcare delivery.The top market share position is held by Apple, with 55 percent of physicians using smart phones and 54 percent using tablets. Clinical app usage in a medical practice was much higher among smart phone users (51 percent daily) than tablet users (30 percent daily). The top five smart phone apps used in a medical practice were Epocrates, Medscape, MedCalc, Skyscape, and Doximity. The top five tablet apps used in a medical practice were Epocrates, Medscape, Up To Date, MedCalc, and Skyscape.Only 28 percent of smart phone users and 18 percent of tablet users were “very satisfied” with the quality of apps for their profession.”As the adoption of mobile devices increases, so do the expectations of clinical users,” Stringham said. “The health IT [information technology] sector and app developers have an opportunity to improve the quality and usefulness of clinical mobile apps.”Additional highlights from the “Mobile Usage in the Medical Space 2013” report include:Mobile phone usage by physicians who use an EHR: 77 percent use a smart phone, 15 percent use a regular mobile phone and 8 percent use neither.About 75 percent of physicians use their smart phone to communicate with other physicians at least once weekly.About 70 percent of physicians use their smart phone to research medications at least once weekly.Of the physicians surveyed, about 25 percent who use a regular phone intend on purchasing a smart phone within the next six months.Additional highlights from the “Tablet Usage by Physicians 2013” report include:About 33 percent of EHR users and 25 percent of non-EHR users use a tablet device in their medical practice.Smaller practices, defined as three doctors or fewer, are likely to conduct a broader range of activities on their tablet, such as banking, communicating with patients or taking photos for clinical purposes.About 33 percent of EHR users are very satisfied with their tablet device, while 44 percent are somewhat satisfied.About 33 percent of EHR users use a tablet to research medications daily.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Artificial Intelligence | August 08, 2019 Half of Hospital Decision Makers Plan to Invest in AI by 2021 August 8, 2019 — A recent study conducted by Olive AI explores how hospital leaders are responding to the imperative read more The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.
