Spanish NGO 1000 Moroccans Work As Prostitutes in Melilla

Rabat – While prostitution is illegal in the Spanish enclave of Melilla, approximately 1,000 women,  almost entirely from Morocco, work as there as prostitutes, according to estimates by local NGO Melilla Acoge, which provides medical and other assistance to prostitutes.In the Spanish autonomous city, “almost 100 percent of the prostitutes are from Morocco,” said the president of the organization Maria Jesus Martin Collantes. Since 2002, the NGO has only treated two prostitutes of Spanish nationality.Dressed usually in djellabas, and hard to recognize as prostitutes,” she said,“they not only come from the Rif area, but also from Rabat and Casablanca.” Moroccan prostitutes who cross into Melilla can be  separated into two groups, explained Martín Collantes: those who enter in the morning and return at noon, and those who come in the afternoon to work during the night.Although the majority of women who practice prostitution in Melilla are aged between 18 and 35, there are also some as old as 60.Women are forced into prostitution because of “misery and complicated personal situations,” according to the NGO.  Most prostitutes are widows, divorced, have children to support, or come from families without financial means.“A lot of us think they want to leave,” said the NGO, recognizing that abandoning a life of prostitution is difficult.However, some “have married and have changed their lives,” noted the organization.  If they have children, they can take them to a school reinforcement program developed by Melilla Acoge.To help prostitutes in the city, the NGO distributes contraceptives and organizes a variety of workshops, including classes on sexually transmitted diseases, Spanish language, cooking, hairdressing, and handicrafts.The group has also signed an agreement with a laboratory to perform tests for diseases such as AIDS, syphilis, and gonorrhea.“We have also worked on the individual development, self-esteem and emancipation of these women. Many of them have psychological problems,” concluded the president of Melilla Acoge. read more

Former commander of Bosnian Muslim forces acquitted by UN tribunal

The United Nations war crimes tribunal set up to deal with war crimes committed during the Balkan conflicts of the 1990s has overturned the conviction of a former commander of Bosnian Muslim forces who was found guilty two years ago of failing to prevent the murder and torture of Serb captives in Srebrenica.Naser Oric was acquitted today by the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), which is based in The Hague, Netherlands.Mr. Oric had been sentenced in 2006 to two years in prison for failing to take necessary and reasonable measures to prevent the murder and cruel treatment of a number of Bosnian Serbs held at the Srebrenica Police Station and a building behind the Srebrenica municipal building in the period between 27 December 1992 and 20 March 1993.Both the Prosecution and the Defence appealed the judgment.The Appeals Chamber found that the Trial Chamber failed to make all of the findings necessary to convict a person for command responsibility under the Tribunal’s Statute.“Naser Oric’s entire conviction rested on that mode of liability,” the Presiding Judge, Wolfgang Schomburg, said. “These errors therefore invalidate the Trial Chamber’s decision to convict Naser Oric for his failure to prevent his subordinate’s alleged criminal conduct.”The Appeals Chamber underscored that, like the Trial Chamber, it had no doubt that grave crimes were committed against Serbs detained in the two detention facilities in Srebrenica between September 1992 and March 1993.“However, proof that crimes have occurred is not sufficient to sustain a conviction of an individual for these crimes. Criminal proceedings require evidence establishing beyond reasonable doubt that the accused is individually responsible for a crime before a conviction can be entered,” the Appeals Chamber found. 3 July 2008The United Nations war crimes tribunal set up to deal with war crimes committed during the Balkan conflicts of the 1990s has overturned the conviction of a former commander of Bosnian Muslim forces who was found guilty two years ago of failing to prevent the murder and torture of Serb captives in Srebrenica. read more

Enbridge balks at seizing assets from environmental group to pay legal costs

VANCOUVER — Enbridge Inc. (TSX:ENB) says it has decided not to have sheriffs seize the assets of a Vancouver-based environmental group over unpaid court costs.Karen Mahon of, formerly known as Forest Ethics, said sheriffs arrived at the group’s office Tuesday morning with documents that authorized them to take and sell the organization’s assets to recover money owed to Enbridge.Forest Ethics was ordered to pay Enbridge’s court fees after the environmental group lost a court case against changes to Line 9, a pipeline that runs between Ontario and posted a photo of the documents online that showed the amount owing at about $14,500.The group refused to pay the court fees as a “point of principle” and did not hear from Enbridge before sheriffs arrived at the office, Mahon said.“We were shocked. We’ve had no communication from the company or anyone else that this would be happening,” she said.“In that instant, it’s quite frightening, but now that we’ve had time to take our breath, we realize that this is clearly an act of bullying and we will stand up to a bully. We refuse to be intimidated.”Enbridge spokesman Jesse Semko said in an email the Calgary-based corporation has asked the sheriffs not to seize any assets from and it will not be pursuing the matter further.He declined further comment, saying Enbridge does not publicly discuss legal matters.Mahon said the incident has strengthened the group’s resolve to fight pipeline projects.The court fees were awarded as part of an unsuccessful lawsuit launched by Forest Ethics against the National Energy Board and Enbridge over what it alleged was inadequate consultation around the pipeline expansion project. read more

TORONTO — Shareholders of Randgold Resources Ltd. have voted in favour of a merger with Barrick Gold Corp.Randgold says just over 95 per cent votes cast were in favour of the deal, representing about 70 per cent of outstanding shares.The proposed combination, announced in September, will add gold mine properties in Mali, Senegal, Ivory Coast and the Democratic Republic of Congo to Barrick’s portfolio.The deal, which valued Randgold at about $7.9-billion when announced, will also see Randgold chief executive Mark Bristow move to the same role at Barrick.Barrick Gold shareholders voted more than 99 per cent in favour of the deal earlier this week.Last week, Barrick sweetened its offer to Randgold shareholders by boosting the dividend offer for 2018 to US$2.69 per Randgold share from the US$2 initially proposed.Companies in this story: (TSX:ABX) read more

FDA issues warning letters to 3 tobacco companies over additivefree claims

FDA issues warning letters to 3 tobacco companies over “additive-free” claims by The Associated Press Posted Aug 27, 2015 9:44 am MDT Last Updated Aug 27, 2015 at 1:28 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – The Food and Drug Administration issued warning letters to the makers of Winston, Natural Spirit and Nat Sherman cigarettes over their “additive-free” and “natural” label claims.The agency issued the warnings to ITG Brands LLC, Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company Inc. and Sherman’s 1400 Broadway N.Y.C. Ltd. The issue over the claims is that they may lead consumers to believe the products pose a lower risk. That claim has to be scientifically proven.In a statement, the FDA said it has determined that the products under the warning letter need what is called a “modified risk tobacco product order” before they can be marketed in that way. It has not issued any orders for modified-risk products to the market and this is the first time it is using its authority to take action against “natural” or “additive-free” claims.The companies have 15 days to respond with a plan or dispute the warnings.There was no immediate response from the companies.Imperial Tobacco Group Plc. owns ITG Brands, which also makes Kool cigarettes and USA Gold. Reynolds American Inc. owns Santa Fe Natural Tobacco.The warning comes several days after a large group of anti-tobacco organizations sent the FDA a letter urging the agency to enforce regulations against Santa Fe Natural Tobacco over marketing claims. That letter, sent on Monday, was signed by 29 groups including the American Heart Association, American Legacy Foundation and Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.The anti-tobacco group’s letter alleged that Natural American Spirit’s advertising in magazines such as Sports Illustrated and Vanity Fair violated the Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.“The potential for irreparable damage to public health from the marketing of tobacco products with modified risk claims is well illustrated by the industry’s years of deceptive advertising of ‘light’ and ‘low-tar’ cigarettes,” the letter stated. read more

What happened to Ohio State quarterback JT Barrett during the 3120 win

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett helped off the field in the third quarter of the Buckeyes’ game against Michigan Saturday. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorANN ARBOR, Mich. — Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer was not worried about injuries. He had no reason for concern. The game had not begun. Yet, nearing the game’s noon kickoff, he was told his quarterback, redshirt senior J.T. Barrett, was on the ground.“I look on the sideline and he’s down,” Meyer said after his team’s 31-20 win against Michigan Saturday. “And I’m like, ‘What happened?’”One of the hundreds of media members with cameras on the sidelines had hit his quarterback with a camera, knocking his knee, Meyer said with a rarely seen fury.“Somebody just tried to squeeze through I guess just to not get close to our bench which is fine,” Barrett said. “I don’t really care as long as you don’t hit me, and he hit me and my knee kind of just shifted in and, like I said, twisted up on me and we were able to lock it out before the game, but that’s how it was.”Meyer ominously said, with dozens of photographers and videographers in the press conference room, he plans to find out who hurt Barrett. He seemed unable to comprehend how something like that could happen to his star quarterback, muttering “major college football” over and over. “Too many damn people on the sideline,” Meyer said with disdain.Meyer has reason for his anger. He was worried Barrett, who was looking to become the first quarterback in the history of the rivalry to win four games, would not be able to play through the injury. But he sent Barrett into the game, anyway. “He’s so tough, he went out there and played and obviously we didn’t do very well and then we got going and then tied things up at 14,” Meyer said.In nearly three quarters behind center, Barrett completed just 3-of-8 passes for 30 yards. Without much success in the air, Barrett took to the Buckeyes’ ground attack. He had 15 rushes — third-most in any game this season — for 67 yards, including a 21-yard scramble for a touchdown in the second quarter. He led two scoring drives, but Barrett also accumulated minus-three yards combined on his other seven drives as quarterback.Then, with 6:07 remaining in the third quarter and his team down six points, Barrett fell to the ground after a 10-yard rush and the rowdy crowd quieted. Trainers helped Barrett up. But rather than have them look at him on the sideline, Barrett walked back to the locker room. His night was over. He returned to his team on the sideline in the fourth quarter, but did not have his helmet.Meyer said Barrett’s knee “locked up” when the person with the camera hit the quarterback, but the trainers managed to “unlock” it. However, they could not manage to “unlock” it during the third quarter when Barrett reaggravated the injury, Meyer said.“I mean before it happened the second time I looked like, running, cutting, playing, throwing the ball — like all that was fine, so it hasn’t affected me,” Barrett said. “It’s just in those little moments when it happens and then today I wasn’t able to pop it back in so it’s not injured. “I’ll play next week,” Barrett added.This was not the first time Barrett has aggravated his knee injury, he said. Barrett said he dealt with this injury earlier in the season in Ohio State’s 49-21 season-opening win against Indiana.He said he has played with the issue for the entire year. “When it happened in a game, I’d just lock my leg out and it’d pop back in and I’d continue to play,” Barrett said. “I didn’t need to go run into the trainer’s and tell anybody, like I was good and I felt fine running around cutting. Meyer did not offer an update on Barrett’s status following the win against the Wolverines, unlike Barrett.Whether Meyer makes the decision to start Barrett or replace him with Haskins next week, who looked solid in three drives that totalled 10 points, has not been determined. Given Barrett’s experience, it is hard to imagine Meyer would turn to Haskins with the season winding down, especially since Barrett said he will play in the Big Ten championship game against Wisconsin on Saturday. Barrett had not missed any snaps this season due to injury, so how someone with a camera running into him reaggravated the issue remains unclear. Meyer said he’s “going to find out who” injured Barrett and “think about that.” read more

Three closed Garda stations have livein guardians heres why

first_imgTHREE GARDA STATIONS shut down in the last year have tenants who pay as little as €100 a month.The Minister of State for the OPW Brian Hayes revealed in the Dáil at the start of the month that he former stations in Dalkey, Stepaside and Kill of the Grange were being occupied because the telecommunications masts on top of them generated income.The closue of the stations were the subject of severe scrutiny, with Stepaside in particular causing huge controversy.Hayes told the Dáil:“The stations in question have telecommunications masts generating income from licence fees from the mobile phone operators. Accordingly, it has been decided that they will not be placed on the market at this time. The properties in question are considered to be commercially valuable and are not being considered for community use.”The company who organises the guardians, Camelot Property Management, says that the solution is used across Europe and suits all parties.“Camelot have a large client base across Europe, protecting a wide variety of buildings during the period prior to a sale, re-development, regeneration or demolition. Clients include government bodies and local councils, project developers, banks and receivers and estate agents and surveyors.”Under the system, guardians who fill three criteria are allowed to live in the buildings, as long as they maintain them.The criteria are:That they are in full-time employment, Have no children, And have no petsThe guardians are then given a discount, of between 40 and 60 per cent on the rent of the buildings. In this case, the Garda stations all have cells, but also have bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchens.Camelot say that the guardians off “a low cost alternative to traditional security and minimise the risk of theft and vandalism”.They point out that the scheme “Keeps the building alive” by reducing the risk of dilapidation and the value of the site maintained.Individuals who want to take up the positions are thoroughly vetted and are told that they may have to leave at short notice.

Couples who meet online are happier

first_imgCOUPLES WHO MEET online and go on to marry are happier – and slightly less likely to get a divorce – than couples who meet face-to-face, according to new research.The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, studies US couples that married between 2005 and 2012 – more than a third of which had met online.The results indicated that, of the continuing marriages, those in which respondents met their spouses online were rated as “more satisfying” than marriages that began in an offline meeting, said researcher John Cacioppo, a psychologist at the University of Chicago.“Moreover, analyses of breakups indicated that marriages that began in an online meeting were less likely to end in separation or divorce than marriages that began in an offline venue,” Cacioppo added.The survey started in 2005 and involved 19,131 people, with just one of the partners in each marriage taking part. Ninety-two per cent of the couples were still married in 2012, with 7.44 per cent separated/divorced and about 0.5 percent widowed.Just under half (45 per cent) of the couples who met via the internet had done so through dating sites, while 21 per cent met on social networks. The remainder met on blogs, gaming sites, chat rooms, discussion groups or other online communities.Work was the most popular place to find a spouse among those who had met face-to-face(21 per cent), while 19 per cent met through friends and 11 per cent cent in school. Less-frequent meeting places included bars, places of worship, blind dates or growing up together.Researchers found that divorce and separation were slightly higher in those who met offline, with 7.6 per cent of that group partning ways compared with 5.9 percent of those who met online.Cacioppo and his team suggested several possible explanations for the results of their study, including the large pool of potential mates offered in online dating/communication – or the possibility that people open up more online than they do in face-to-face meetings.Read: 14 ways to tell you’re in a long term relationshipColumn: Infidelity is an intimate betrayal and dealing with it is a complex processRead: 14 reasons to believe in life after lovelast_img read more

The palace hopes the changes will end a long-running joke about notorious traffic congestion in the capital of more than 12 million people.“Every time there’s a traffic jam, everyone wonders if there’s a royal motorcade passing by,” palace official Chantanee Thanarak told a police training session at national police headquarters in Bangkok. “The royal family never meant to bother the public.”About a dozen members of Thailand’s extended royal family travel by motorcade, including 84-year-old King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the queen, their children and grandchildren. The palace said Bhumibol initiated the changes himself, though he has rarely traveled outside the hospital where he has stayed more than two years.Until now, police halted traffic in both directions and for many blocks far in advance of a royal motorcade. Traffic was also halted on highway overpasses, for security but also to observe protocol that no head should be higher than a royal’s. The measures snarl traffic, require extensive police presence and have been quietly criticized as excessive.The new guidelines permit traffic on overpasses and oncoming traffic on the road opposite a royal motorcade. The stoppages will be briefer and fewer police will be used for royal road closures. Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family BANGKOK (AP) – Bangkok’s legendary traffic jams may be getting a bit lighter. Or at least less of a joke.A handbook distributed to police and other authorities Friday updates the guidelines for motorcades and other public appearances by Thailand’s royal family. It overturns practices that quietly irritated the public in a country where open criticism of the royal family is illegal, punishable by up to 15 years in prison.last_img read more

Small Luxury Hotels willing to bear agent commissions

The original Dumbo was released in the summer of

first_img The original “Dumbo” was released in the summer of 1941 while Germany was spreading across Europe and war was breaking out in the Pacific. Crafted as a simpler Disney fable after the more extravagant “Fantasia” disappointed at the box office, “Dumbo” — only 64 minutes in length — took flight just as far more chilling creations were taking to the air.Almost eight decades later, “Dumbo” is alight again in Tim Burton’s sombre and sincere live-action remake of the animated classic. Burton has refashioned “Dumbo” as a sepia-toned show-business parable tailored to more animal rights-sensitive times.“Dumbo” is the latest in a circus parade of Disney remakes (“The Lion King” and “Aladdin” are due out later this year) that brings classic characters into seemingly more real worlds with the aid of digital wizardry. None of them will overwhelm anyone by their necessity. Movies, after all, aren’t smart phones that require software updates.That said, Burton’s “Dumbo,” while inevitably lacking much of the magic of the original, has charms and melancholies of its own, starting, naturally, with the elephant in the room. Of all the CGI make-overs, this Dumbo is the most textured, sweetest and most soulful of creatures. Like the original, he doesn’t speak and trips over his floppy ears. Whether cowering at a new height or finding astonishment as he, with a sneeze, is sent airborne, the digitally rendered Dumbo is one precious pachyderm.The film opens in 1919 on the heels of World War I. Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell, who has grown into the most sensitive and consistent of leading men) returns from war, minus an arm, to his two children, Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins). Though Dumbo endures separation from his mother in Burton’s film, the deeper grief in “Dumbo” has been transferred to the humans: The children’s mother died while Holt was away at war from an influenza that, as one character says, “hit like a hurricane.”Other things have changed, too. The travelling circus where the Farriers make their home has fallen on hard times. Settling down in Joplin, Missouri, the camp is half its former size. Its owner, Max Medici (Danny DeVito, spectacular), has sold off the horses that Holt rode in his act. Medici sinks all his remaining money into an elephant that he hopes will revive the circus, only to feel swindled when she produces such a droopy-eared offspring, discovered at birth beneath a heap of hay.Of course, Dumbo’s stock rises once he does, too, and Medici’s suddenly sensational circus quickly attracts the interest of a much more big-league circus impresario, V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton, in a devilishly slick performance), who brings Medici’s whole circus to his Coney Island kingdom as a means, we immediately grasp, of luring Dumbo away and dispensing, like a vulture capitalist, with the rest.It’s a kind of reunion for Burton, Keaton and DeVito, who 27 years ago came together in “Batman Returns.” The film, starring a bird that couldn’t fly in DeVito’s Penguin, was like a wicked version of “Dumbo,” and similarly full of misfits and so-called freaks. “Dumbo” is naturally lighter terrain for Burton but for the first time in years, the director — so long an expert at the proximity of fantasy and horror — seems at home.And he steers “Dumbo,” from a script by Ehren Kruger, toward a grand corporate satire as the big-city conglomerate tries to co-opt the genuine wonder of Dumbo and Medici’s travelling band. Greed and exploitation close in on them as the big-tent gets bigger. That such a story line should come in the biggest big-tent of them all, Disney (whose Disneyland isn’t so dissimilar to Vandevere’s Dreamland) is either an awkward or happy irony, depending on your level of cynicism.But it is wondrous when Dumbo takes flight. Burton’s camera feels genuinely mesmerized at his elephant’s magic act. The filmmaker’s recent films have been well outside his best work; it was his woeful “Alice in Wonderful” that kick-started much of the Disney live-action remakes. But when Dumbo soars, it’s clear that Burton is a believer, still, in the ability of a beautiful oddity to transcend.“Dumbo,” a Walt Disney Co. release, is rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America for peril/action, some thematic elements, and brief mild language. Running time: 112 minutes. Three stars out of four.___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: Coyle, The Associated Press by Jake Coyle, The Associated Press Posted Mar 26, 2019 3:14 pm PDT Review: ‘Dumbo’ remake takes flight on its own charms This image released by Disney shows a scene from “Dumbo.” (Disney via AP) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more
