Algeria Sentences Said Bouteflika to 15 Years in Prison

Rabat – An Algerian military court sentenced, on Tuesday, September 24, Said Bouteflika, brother of the former Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, to 15 years in prison. Bouteflika faced charges of “attacking the authority of the army” and “conspiracy against the authority of the state.”After two days of hearings, Blida’s public prosecution office requested a 20-year prison sentence for the defendant. Said Bouteflika has been seen as the power behind the Bouteflika regime, following his brother’s stroke in 2013. Algeria also sentenced two former secret service chiefs and a political party head on similar charges.In a series of protests, which started on February 22, Algerians have been denouncing the widespread corruption amongst the country’s political elite. The protesters are calling for accountability and for an end to the impunity enjoyed by elites.The Algerian protesters demanded radical change for the whole “corrupt system,” including the dismissal of every official from Bouteflika’s era. The former president was in power from 1999 to 2019.Several other senior government officials have been placed in custody, including Algeria’s two former prime ministers, Ahmed Ouyahia and Abdelmalek Sellal.Read also: Algerian Army Orders Police to Bar Protesters from CapitalDespite threats to arrest protesters, Algeria flocked to the capital for another wave of protests on Friday, September 20Last week, Algerian army chief Gaid Salah ordered the police to arrest protesters entering Algeria.“I have instructed the national gendarmerie to deal with these actions with firmness,” said General Ahmed Gaid Salah.Salah said that orders had been issued to stop “vehicles and coaches used” to bring protestors to Algiers by seizing them and “fining their owners.”The chief, regarded as Algeria’s de facto leader after the resignation of former president Abdelaziz Bouteflika, is also insisting on the importance of an election before the end of this year.Interim president Abdelkader Bensalah has announced that the election will take place on December 12. read more

TSX choppy on Spain worries weak US jobs data

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market was negative Thursday amid lower commodities and while Spain and Italy felt the pressure of higher borrowing costs.The S&P/TSX composite index lost 26.5 points to 11,471.38 while the TSX Venture Exchange gained 7.11 points to 1,250.99.The Canadian dollar was up 0.37 of a cent to 97.53 cents US.U.S. markets were positive with the Dow Jones industrial average ahead 17.71 points at 12,514.09.The Nasdaq composite index slipped 9.9 points to 2,808.71 and the S&P 500 index added 0.52 of a point to 1,315.4.There was also caution ahead of Greek elections on Sunday. Greeks will determine whether the country sticks to its highly unpopular austerity program of tax hikes and spending cuts that a previous government accepted in order to receive billions of euros in bailouts that are keeping the country afloat.If political parties are elected that favour reneging on the program, the international bailout and Greece’s membership in the euro currency union would be at risk.Spain’s 10-year borrowing rate inched up to 6.71 per cent from 6.67 per cent. That is close to the seven per cent rate considered unsustainable. Greece, Portugal and Ireland were forced to seek financial rescue packages after rising to that level.Ratings agency Moody’s downgraded Spain’s government debt three notches late Wednesday, placing it one level above junk status. Moody’s said the downgrade was due to the offer from eurozone leaders of up to C100 billion to Spain to prop up its failing banking sector, which the ratings agency believes will add considerably to the government’s debt burden.The downgrade means that even fewer investors will buy Spanish debt as organizations such as pension funds are prevented from investing in assets with such a low score.The debt crisis contagion continued to spread to Italy. Its 10-year borrowing rate rose to 6.07 per cent from 6.02 per cent, and the interest rate on its one-year bonds also rose sharply.And in a bond auction, Italy paid a 5.3 per cent interest rate, up from 3.91 per cent last month, to sell C3 billion in three-year paper. The sale was fully subscribed.Traders seemed disinclined to make big moves on commodity markets as well.The base metals sector led declines, down 1.18 per cent with July copper off a penny at US$3.33 a pound. Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) gave back 44 cents to C$31.88.The energy sector dipped 0.17 per cent with the July crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange down six cents at US$82.56 a barrel. Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) fell 15 cents to C$28.71.The gold sector was down about 0.7 per cent as August gold gave back $7.70 to US$1,611.70 an ounce. Goldcorp Inc. (TSX:G) faded 59 cents to C$40.64.The tech sector fell 1.11 per cent with Research In Motion Ltd. (TSX:RIM) down 36 cents at $10.64.Elsewhere, Finnish cellphone maker Nokia Corp. (NYSE:NOK) will lay off 10,000 jobs globally and close plants by the end of 2013 in a further drive to save costs. Nokia is fighting fierce competition from Apple Inc.’s iPhone and other makers using Google Inc.’s popular Android software, including Samsung Electronics Co. and HTC of Taiwan. Nokia shares tumbled 41 cents or 14.7 per cent to US$2.38 in New York.Meanwhile, German Chancellor Angela Merkel acknowledged that Europe’s worsening debt crisis will dominate this weekend’s summit of the world’s 20 most important economies in Mexico. But she stuck to her conviction that the region’s crisis can only be solved by keeping a tight rein on government finances and introducing structural reforms.European bourses were sharply lower with London’s FTSE 100 index down 0.64 per cent, Frankfurt’s DAX down 0.54 per cent and the Paris CAC 40 off 0.36 per cent.Earlier in Asia, Japan’s Nikkei 225 index slipped 0.2 per cent, Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 dropped 0.5 per cent, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng shed 1.2 per cent and the Shanghai Composite Index fell one per cent. But South Korea’s Kospi gained 0.7 per cent.In earnings news, shares in travel and vacation company Transat A.T. Inc. (TSX:TRZ.B) lost 23 cents to $4.13 after it posted a net loss of $13.2-million or 35 cents for its latest quarter. Overall revenue rose by $111 million to $1.2 billion due an acquisition in Transat’s North American arm, offset by lower selling prices and higher costs. Analysts had been expecting a smaller loss.Hockey equipment company Bauer Performance Sports Ltd. (TSX:BAU) is buying Cascade Helmets Holdings Inc. for US$64 million in a bid to expand its lacrosse business and acquire the company’s patented helmet technology. Bauer shares were off 11 cents at $7.95. read more

Kachchatheevu is ours says Douglas

Last week, the Tamil Nadu Assembly passeda resolution in this regard, in the wake of “continued violent attacks, torture and arrest of Tamil Nadu fishermen by the Sri Lankan Navy.”Observing that it was a politically motivated demand, Mr. Devananda said as per the maritime boundary agreements between India and Sri Lanka signed in 1974 and 1976 the island now belonged to Sri Lanka. Tamil Nadu has no right to demand Kachchatheevu, for it belongs to Sri Lanka as per an earlier agreement, Sri Lanka’s Traditional Industries and Small Enterprises Development Minister Douglas Devananda has said.His statement comes in response to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s recent demand that the Centre retrieve a small island ceded to Sri Lanka in 1974. “This is a livelihood issue of fishermen of both, Sri Lanka and India. I request the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister to look at the issue from that perspective, instead of looking at it politicallly,” he told The Hindu on Friday. read more

Security Council members hail DR of Congo Rwanda peace agreement

In a press statement following a private meeting, the Council President, Ambassador John D. Negroponte of the United States, said that members acknowledged that while there were details to work out, they were encouraged by the political will expressed in the agreement by President Joseph Kabila of the DRC and Rwandan President Paul Kagame.Council members also credited the Government of South Africa, particularly President Thabo Mbeki, for their roles in brokering the accord and welcomed the country’s continued involvement in helping to implement the agreement, Ambassador Negroponte said. They also welcomed the part played by the African Union and looked forward to the organization’s further influence in helping to bring an end to the conflict in the DRC.Council members acknowledged that the UN would have a role in assisting the parties and other African States in putting the agreement into action and therefore welcomed the intention of the parties to consult closely with the UN Organization Mission in the DRC (MONUC) and other relevant UN agencies as soon as possible, Ambassador Negroponte said.The Council also used the meeting to seek clarification on various aspects of the agreement and further details on its implementation from Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, the Foreign Minister of South Africa, Leonard She Okitundu, the Foreign Minister of the DRC, and Patrick Mazimhaka, Rwanda’s Special Envoy for the DRC, Ambassador Negroponte said.The questions related to a range of issues, the Council President said, including the timeframes for the withdrawal of Rwandan forces and the demobilization process for Hutu rebels, the role of MONUC in implementation and the future role of South Africa as the third party to the agreement.”The discussion with the parties was very useful to members [and] we anticipate that the Council will return to the matter later this month, perhaps to issue a statement on the agreement,” Ambassador Negroponte said.The Council would also be considering recommendations from the UN Secretariat on MONUC’s operations and any useful role the Mission could play in support of the parties’ implementation of the agreement, he added.Video – Security Council meeting read more

As Africa stabilizes world must commit troops to peacekeeping UN official says

“It is important to sustain the peacekeeping efforts there,” the Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, Jean-Marie Guéhenno, told a news conference.Highlighting the continent’s accomplishments, he cited the establishment of a transitional government in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), the prospect of real peace in Sierra Leone and Burundi, possible success in Liberia and negotiations in Sudan.He also voiced hope that the Security Council would back the expansion of the UN Mission in Côte d’Ivoire (MINUCI), which currently has 34 military liaison officers.Also attending the briefing were three Special Representatives for the Secretary-General: Daudi Mwakawago, head of the UN Mission in Sierra Leone (UNAMSIL), William Lacy Swing, head of the UN Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUC) and Jacques Paul Klein, chief of the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).Mr. Mwakawago said the UN forces in Sierra Leone were being gradually downsized by June to 10,500 from 17,000, taking into account the Government’s readiness to assume responsibility for countrywide security and law and order.An assessment mission scheduled to go to Sierra Leone next week would formulate proposals to the Security Council about post-UNAMSIL arrangements, he said.Mr. Swing observed that MONUC has evolved from a small observer mission to a complex multi-dimensional operation called upon to facilitate the transition process culminating in elections in June 2005.Although “sometimes it appears that everything has been broken but the human spirit” in the DRC, dramatic progress has been achieved, he said. Former adversaries were now together in the same government, the once-divided country was now reunited, and the Congo River was open to traffic.But Mr. Swing also noted that in the context of war, 3.5 million people had lost their lives while 600,000 had fled their homes.On Liberia, Mr. Klein said that the increased international presence throughout the country had served to quell violence. Troop deployments had also paved the way for the provision of humanitarian assistance.He noted that tomorrow, the second and final day of a pledging conference for Liberia being held at the UN, Secretary-General Kofi Annan and representatives of the international community would seek funds for the country’s reconstruction. “Stable peace would be elusive without development,” he warned.

Commentary Say what you want former Buckeye Terrelle Pryor is still fun

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor (2) avoids the sack during a game against the Denver Broncos Sept. 23 at Sports Authority Field. Denver won, 37-21.Credit: Courtesy of MCTIt is a day some people saw as unlikely, and others saw as imminent: Terrelle Pryor has a starting quarterback job in the NFL.The former Ohio State signal caller is most known around Columbus for his involvement in the 2011 NCAA violations, known as “Tattoo-Gate,” in which he was found to have sold memorabilia and received improper benefits.Pryor was named the Oakland Raiders starter coming out of training camp, beating out Matt Flynn, who the organization traded for in the offseason as well as 2013 NFL Draft pick Matt McGloin.However, three games into a season is usually the time to assess one’s play, especially the offensive leader of a 1-2 team.In his first start of 2013 (Pryor’s first career start came in a 2012 Week 17 loss in place of an injured Carson Palmer), Pryor and the Raiders fell to Indianapolis, 21-17, thanks to Andrew Luck’s game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter. Pryor’s gutsy performance earned him national recognition however, as his 112 rushing yards led the league that day, running backs included.The following week brought Pryor his first career victory in a sloppy game all around. The Raiders beat the woeful Jacksonville Jaguars 19-9, while Pryor passed for just 126 yards.The third-round pick of the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft had his best statistical outing on Monday night in a lopsided loss to Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos. Despite being the matchup’s lesser quarterback, Pryor notched respectable career highs as a starter in passing yards (281), completion percentage (67.9) and passer rating (112.4).Pryor has ample opportunity to improve his numbers and reverse his team’s fortune in the coming weeks, as five of Oakland’s next six opponents currently sport losing records.If Pryor struggles through this stretch, expect Raider coach Dennis Allen to hand the offense’s reigns over to backup Flynn. The former Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson backup, who is guaranteed $6.5 million from the Raiders this season according to the San Francisco Chronicle, is once again holding a clipboard on the sideline.A big hit late Monday night against Denver left Pryor with a concussion; he is currently listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against Washington. If unable to play, Flynn will get a chance to prove himself in front of the Raider faithful.It will be interesting to see how Pryor leads the Raiders moving forward. Whether in fantasy football or in real life it is hard to deny that the Jeanette, Pa., quarterback is fun to watch. That is, of course, if you’ve forgiven him for his role in “Tattoo-Gate.” read more

WikiLeaks receives nomination for Nobel Peace Prize

first_imgWikiLeaks has made a name for itself by leaking secret government documents including reports covering the war in Iraq and U.S. diplomatic communications. The leaks have not only resulted in the WikiLeaks website becoming a household name, but the arrest of Pfc. Bradley E. Manning who faces criminal charges for providing WikiLeaks with the classified documents.The legality of U.S. classified documents being received by the website as part of an illegal act has resulted in a domino effect of financial institutions and businesses severing relations with WikiLeaks. If that wasn’t bad enough, WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange faces extradition from the UK to answer allegations of sexual assault in Sweden. Yet, there’s a bright side.WikiLeaks has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize by Snorre Valen, a Norwegian lawmaker. Typically, nominations stay secret for 50 years, but Valen announced his nomination through his online blog.Valen, a member of Norway’s Socialist Left Party turned in his nomination in person on Tuesday, the last day the committee accepted nominations. If WikiLeaks does receive the prize, the site will be entitled to an award of $1.6 million.Nobody from the website should be hoping to cash a check from the Norwegian Nobel Committee anytime soon, though. WikiLeaks’ nomination is only one of more than 200 that have been received by the committee. That amount doesn’t even include nominations members of the five-member committee can make during their February 28th meeting. The committee will announce the winners of the Nobel Prize in October.Read more at AP.last_img read more

Make beautiful music with your own DIY singing Tesla coil

first_imgTesla coils tend to be a fixture in science fiction and experimentation, and thus the geek sphere. How could they not be? They’re towers that shoot off visible electrical bolts, instantly creating a visually appealing backdrop for whatever mad science experiment is being performed. With Kickstarter project oneTesla, not only can you learn about and build your own Tesla coil, but you can make music out of two-foot-long sparks. That’s science, right there!The oneTesla coil isn’t an enormous set piece you can put behind your amateur science lab — the secondary coil is actually only 10 inches tall. Perhaps the best part of the oneTesla,  aside from it making music out of electricity, is that the kit is designed to be easy to put together, and comes with everything you’ll need except for some basic tools, such as a soldering iron, common hand tools, and a glue gun.The Tesla coil resonates at around 230kHz, a frequency much higher than the 20Hz to 20kHz that the human ear can pick up. However, the oneTesla is able to make music because sound is a pressure wave, so turning off and on the sparks create a pressure wave that the human ear can hear.Just 11 days into the project’s Kickstarter campaign, it has already raised around $140,000 over the initial funding goal of $20,000. A number of the pledge rewards are sold out, but some don’t have any limits, such as a pledge of $30 securing you a oneTesla board (without the other components). At the time of this writing, the project is on round four of the pledges, and only a few of the higher tier rewards are left, such as a pledge of $299 getting you one of the 110V oneTesla kits.Though the project is intended to be a DIY endeavor, the oneTesla team does recommend having someone with electrical component and soldering experience on-hand to supervise the build process. If you’re interested, check out the project page over on Kickstarter.last_img read more

Mamata set to address states biggest ever peoples rally

first_imgKolkata: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee will reiterate her demand for the reintroduction of ballot papers replacing the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) from the stage of the Martyrs’ Day rally on Sunday. The police had gunned down 13 Youth Congress supporters who took part in the march to the Writers’ Buildings demanding “no ID card no vote” on July 21, 1993 under the leadership of Mamata Banerjee who was the then Youth Congress president. The day is observed as the Martyrs’ Day by the Trinamool since the inception of the party on January 1, 1998. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataWhile on her visit to the venue on Saturday evening, she said she has been rooting for the electoral reforms since 1995 and added: “For preventing black money (in polls), restoring democracy, ensuring transparency on the part of political parties, the reforms are must. It should include state funding. Why should a party collect funds? Why should black money be there?”. Maintaining that the EVMs have been discarded by many countries, including England, France and Germany, the Chief Minister said: “Those who introduced EVMs are not using it. When there are so many complaints, ballot papers should be revived. We are saying no to EVM, and asking for the return of ballot papers.” Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateBanerjee visited the venue in front of the CESC House on Chittaranjan Avenue to see the last-minute arrangements on Saturday afternoon. She was accompanied by Mayor Firhad Hakim and Trinamool state president Subrata Bakshi. She inspected the main podium and the arenas where the party leaders and functionaries will sit on Sunday. It may be recalled that during her election speeches, Banerjee had spoken over and again about the manipulation of the EVMs. After the result of the general elections was declared, all the Opposition parties had echoed her thoughts. But till date, none has launched any concrete movement on the issue. Banerjee proposes to launch an all-India movement on the issue and is expected to highlight the same during the mega rally. Large sections of Trinamool supporters are suffering from fear psychosis because of the BJP’s unprecedented result in the Lok Sabha elections. From two Lok Sabha seats in 2014, the party has bagged 18 seats in 2019. Ironically, Jangalmahal and North Bengal are two areas where the TMC failed to get a single seat despite massive development taking place in the region in the past eight years. In the meetings with the presidents and other functionaries of the districts, the party supremo has told them not to get worried as the party’s vote percentage has gone up by 4 percent. She has also assured them that TMC will be back to power in 2021. Meanwhile, many Trinamool leaders who had joined the saffron party have come back to the party fold. It is to be seen how Banerjee can cheer up the party’s rank and file and inspire them to carry out the party’s ongoing programmes successfully.last_img read more

Analyst Mortgage Market on Track for Meltdown

first_imgAnalyst: Mortgage Market on Track for Meltdown As commentators ponder what’s in store for home sales in the coming months, one analyst foresees trouble ahead for the mortgage market.In a note sent earlier this week, equity research analyst Richard Bove at Rafferty Capital Markets warned clients of a potential mortgage crisis in the making, according to a report from CNBC.With the Federal Reserve on track to end its monthly bond purchases (currently at a rate of $25 billion and falling), Bove cautions that the loss of one of the tools used to help lift housing out of its post-recession rut could hurt the market, especially as interest rates start to tick back up.Another cause of concern in Bove’s mind is the push from Washington to wind down Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac—which together control about 61 percent of U.S. mortgages, he estimates—and replace them with a new government corporation.While the proposed Federal Mortgage Insurance Corporation has some support on Capitol Hill, critics—including Bove—argue that investors would be unwilling to take a proposed 10 percent front-end loss on defaulted loans, spelling the end of the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, considered the cornerstone of the mortgage market.”This means there will be less money available to fund housing, and the terms of the available funds will be considerably more onerous than what was available under 30-year, fixed-rate loans,” he reportedly said. “This means higher monthly payments and lower housing prices. It means a crisis in the mortgage markets—and the economy.”Not everyone agrees with Bove’s assessment, however. In a response, CNBC real estate correspondent Diana Olick called Bove’s note a “dramatic overreaction,” asserting that investors are hungry enough to pick up the Fed’s slack in purchasing mortgage-backed securities and that policymakers aren’t likely to end the popular 30-year fixed mortgage any time soon.”Even when the Fed finally pulls out entirely and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac start to wind down, rates could go up slightly, but they’re not going to go up suddenly and not enough to suddenly crash the housing market,” Olick said.Instead, she said low demand and tight credit standards are the main issues to worry about.”What’s wrong with housing right now? Not enough people want to get mortgages. … That’s the problem, not a crash coming this winter,” she said.

Laiki depositors want future gas stake

first_imgBy Constantinos PsillidesTHE Association of Laiki Bank depositors met yesterday with President Nicos Anastasiades, presenting him with a proposal regarding monetary compensation from future natural gas exploitation.The depositors lost money after the Eurogroup bail-in, which resulted in a massive haircut and the eventual collapse of Laiki Bank. The association now proposes that all losses be recorded and the losers compensated with future profits from the exploitation of natural gas resources.Association head Adonis Papaconstantinou told the press that the proposal was now updated to include the updated memorandum agreed with the troika of lenders, the European Central Bank, International Monetary Fund and European Commission.“We explained our proposal to the president in brief and agreed to meet with finance minister Harris Georgiades who happened to be in the building for another meeting. We scheduled the meeting for next week,” Papaconstantinou said, adding that the aim of the proposal was the reinstitution of damages caused by the Eurogroup decision.Compensation wasn’t the only topic of discussion. The association delegation also expressed their dissatisfaction with the memorandum clause regarding the Bank of Cyprus 18 per cent share capital (the former Laiki Bank who merged with BoC), which stipulates that control over it should be given to an international house.“Our position is that since depositors own that 18 per cent, we should make any decisions that stem from the ownership of 18 per cent of the Bank of Cyprus. If it is decided that the share capital will be sold, we want to make sure that the sale won’t damage Laiki depositors,” Papconstantinou said.Asked about the president’s reaction to the proposal, Papaconstantinou said he was very receptive. “I have to say that he heard our demands carefully and as I said we have a schedule meeting with the finance minister to discuss our proposal further,” he added.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoFreedom Debt ReliefPeople In Heavy Debt Are In For A SurpriseFreedom Debt ReliefUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
