Inters Mauro Icardi reportedly set for move to PSG

first_imgMilan: Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi, his club’s leading scorer in each of the last five seasons and former captain, is set to join Paris St Germain, the Gazzetta dello Sport and other Italian media said on Monday. The move would end a turbulent spell at the club for the Argentine, who has fallen out with fans along on the way and provided fodder for the gossip columns thanks to his marriage to Wanda Nara, a media personality who also acts as his agent. Gazzetta published what it said was a photograph of Icardi and Nara at Malpensa airport, saying would board a private jet for Paris to finalise a loan spell at PSG with an option to buy. Other Italian media carried the same story, including Sky Sport Italia.

Despite his scoring exploits, Icardi fell out with Inter’s hard core fans over an account of an argument with supporters in his autobiography in 2016. Curva Nord ultras responded that “Icardi is not our captain, not now or ever” and applauded when he missed a penalty in one of Inter’s next games.

He returned to the side in April after talks between his lawyer and the club, although Luciano Spalletti, the Inter coach at the time, said it had been “humiliating” for Inter to have to negotiate with a player to get him to play.last_img read more

Moroccan Exporters Free Trade with US Did Not Profit Morocco

Rabat – The Moroccan Exporters Association (ASMEX) recently met US Department of Commerce Foreign Commercial Service Officer Nathalie Scharf in Casablanca.The meeting discussed possible future collaborations from a shared profitability perspective, according to Maghreb Arab Press (MAP).“The free trade agreement between Morocco and the US has not been beneficial to Moroccan exporters, given the size of the US market and the complex procedures yet unfamiliar to Moroccan companies,” said ASMEX President Hassan Sentissi El Idrissi, quoted in the statement.“This agreement should be reviewed in such a way as to consider the reality of Moroccan [small and medium-sized enterprises],” he added.US exports to Morocco hiked since the FTA took effectScharf drew attention to the opportunities that the US now offers to Moroccan investors and exporters.She invited Moroccan exporters to join the Select USA Investment Summit in June 2019, an event that will host high-level participants to help establish business relationships and develop economic activities.Both sides proposed ideas to boost Moroccan exports to the US market. One option involves setting up a program to support and refer Moroccan exporters to major US clients.The two parties also jointly proposed signing a tripartite memorandum of understanding between ASMEX, the Moroccan Investment and Export Development Agency (AMDIE), and the US diplomatic representation for the Select USA program.The memorandum would mainly focus on supporting major Moroccan groups whose strategy is to do business in the US and throughout North and South America.The mission would involve organizing seminars to assist American investors in Africa and carrying out Moroccan-American economic missions to Africa, concluded the statement.

Morocco is the first African country to hold such a meeting with the US.However, questions surrounding fair trade prompted Moroccan exporters to call for a review of the Morocco-US free trade agreement, signed in 2004.

Multotecs high recovery water treatment plant for concentrator in Oman

first_imgAfter extensive test work and design, mineral processing specialist Multotec Group is commissioning a full scale DeSALx® plant to treat waste water from a flue gas desulphurisation scrubber, at a minerals processing plant in Oman in the Middle East. According to Carien Spagnuolo, Senior Process Engineer at Multotec Process Equipment, the leading edge DeSALx® technology is being combined with more traditional technologies, to achieve water recoveries exceeding 90%.“The pyro-metallurgical antimony plant in which we are installing this facility, is located in a very water-constrained area, requiring a high level of water recovery and permitting no liquid effluent from the site,” says Spagnuolo. “The antimony roaster produces waste water with high levels of heavy metals including antimony and arsenic, which need to be precipitated in a pre-treatment phase.”Based on the Continuous Ionic Filtration (CIF®) process from Multotec’s Australian technology partner CleanTeq Water, DeSALx uses two stages of CIF to desalinate brackish water and enables this effluent treatment process to operate at a much higher water recovery than conventionally possible.“This is achieved when the system is used in conjunction with an upfront precipitation step,” she explains. “This essentially creates a closed loop with no liquid waste production, as the waste from the DeSALx can be routed to the precipitation step.”The CIF system consists of a series of columns – each designed for a specific function: ion exchange and filtration; resin washing; and resin regeneration. In the DeSALx desalination process, a cationic resin is used in the first stage to remove cations from water, while in the second stage an anionic resin is used to remove anions.“Water produced using this technology has low total dissolved solids (TDS) and a neutral pH,” she further explains. “The system is regenerated with sulphuric acid and lime – both low-cost chemicals – producing a brine slurry saturated with gypsum.”The Oman plant comprises two precipitation steps. The first is dedicated to precipitating antimony, arsenic and heavy metals using ferric chloride to remove them from the limestone scrubber blowdown, while in the second step a lime precipitation neutralises the acid quench blowdown and treats the brine or waste produced by the DeSALx system.“Once the streams have been pre-treated in this way, they are fed into the dual-stage continuous ion exchange system to remove the high concentrations of calcium and sulphates,” Spagnuolo says. “This enables the reverse osmosis system to operate at these high water recovery levels.”The water treatment plant, which produces 10 m3/h of potable quality water for re-use within the antimony recovery plant, also includes a Multotec filter press to dewater solid waste.To achieve the optimal design, Multotec conducted a lengthy test work program at its dedicated laboratory in Spartan near Johannesburg. This included simulating the precipitation, continuous ion exchange and filtration unit processes on both a bench-top and laboratory pilot scale.“These tests gave us the basis for our design, while confirming that the proposed process would remove the necessary elements down to the required levels,” she notes. “During the test work, we were able to simulate the effect of changing feed conditions on the DeSALx system – proving its ability to adjust effectively to these variable conditions.”The project installation has been completed and commissioning is in progress, with final commissioning expected to be completed in Q4 2018.As the main contractor for the project, Multotec worked with other water treatment technology providers to supply a complete water treatment solution. DeSALx is marketed and distributed by Multotec on behalf of its Australian partners CleanTeq Water.last_img read more

La lecture des empreintes sur du tissu rendue possible

first_imgLa lecture des empreintes sur du tissu rendue possibleDes chercheurs britanniques, en association avec les services de police écossais, viennent de trouver un moyen de lire des empreintes digitales laissées sur du tissu, chose jusqu’ici impossible.Les matières textiles étaient jusqu’à présent difficilement exploitables par les enquêteurs ou la police scientifique car il était très difficile d’y prélever d’éventuelles empreintes digitales. Cela s’avère pourtant extrêmement important dans certaines affaires où des empreintes auraient permis de savoir si une victime avait été précipitée dans des escaliers ou s’il ne s’agissait que d’un accident par exemple.À lire aussiDes peintures rupestres découvertes en Egypte ne seraient pas toutes d’origine humaineDes scientifiques ont tenté des expériences consistant à reproduire la technique de métallisation sous vide qui permet de retrouver des empreintes digitales sur des surfaces plastiques, indique Sciences et Avenir. Le tissu, disposé dans une chambre sous vide a été recouvert de fines couches d’or et de zinc. L’or, qui recouvre toute la pièce de tissu, ne se mélange au zinc qu’aux endroits où aucune empreinte ne se trouve.Ainsi, l’ensemble de l’empreinte apparaît, en négatif. Le principe fonctionnant parfaitement, il reste aux chercheurs à continuer leur étude pour confirmer ces résultats et les rendre parfaitement valides.Le 5 février 2011 à 09:08 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Une carte météo satellite pour prédire les épidémies de dengue

first_imgUne carte météo satellite pour prédire les épidémies de denguePour pouvoir prévoir où et quand les épidémies de dengue risque de frapper, des satellites vont essayer de dresser une “carte météo” des moustiques qui sont à l’origine de la transmission du virus.Le CNES, l’agence spatiale française, et Sanofi Pasteur ont annoncé hier leur association dans un projet pilote de “télé-épidémiologie”. L’objectif est de cartographier les zones menacées par la dengue, une maladie en pleine expansion. Le PDG de Sanofi-Pasteur, la branche vaccins du géant pharmaceutique Sanofi-Aventis, Olivier Charmeil, a expliqué que “l’utilisation d’images spatiales pour mieux comprendre les facteurs de risque de la dengue pourrait permettre d’anticiper les épidémies et donc de mieux s’y préparer”.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Bien qu’incapables de détecter depuis l’espace des nuages de moustiques Aedes aegypti ou Aedes albopictus responsables de la transmission de la maladie, les satellites peuvent recouper un certain nombre de données, qu’elles soient d’ordre climatologiques, environnementales ou encore sanitaires. Grâce aux informations récoltées sur le terrain ces dernières années, les scientifiques pensent ainsi pouvoir analyser les mécanismes à l’œuvre dans les épidémies de dengue, explique Murielle Lafaye, responsable du programme dengue au CNES.”Notre but est d’obtenir une carte dynamique du risque, pouvoir dire “où et quand” en prenant en compte différents aspects climatiques à différentes échelles géographiques”, indique Mme Lafaye cité par l’AFP. De son côté, Sanofi Pasteur estime pouvoir commencer à produire un vaccin dès 2014. En attendant, le seul moyen de lutter contre la dengue consiste à lutter contre les moustiques, notamment en dépistant l’eau stagnante où ses larves se développent (les moustiquaires sont inefficaces dans la mesure où les moustiques Aedes piquent le jour).De plus, comme le relève le Dr Jean Lang, responsable du développement du vaccin pour la firme français, même après la commercialisation du vaccin contre la dengue, des cartes prévoyant les risques d’épidémie resteraient un atout précieux. En effet, cette “météo du moustique” permettrait de cibler les campagnes de vaccination vers les populations les plus exposées. Sanofi Pasteur compte pouvoir produire 100 millions de doses de vaccins par an dans son usine en construction à Neuville-sur-Saône (Rhône). Avec trois injections à prévoir (étalées sur un an) pour plus de 2,5 milliards de personnes (selon l’OMS), soit plus de 40% de la population mondiale, ce serait une manne financière colossale pour le laboratoire français.Le 7 février 2012 à 16:26 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Rise Against Tim McIlraths favorite protest songs of all time

first_img Facebook Tim McIlrath picks best protest songs of all time rise-against-tim-mcilraths-favorite-protest-songs-all-time Email Twitter Rise Against: Tim McIlrath’s favorite protest songs of all time Chicago rock band’s frontman shares his thoughts on the best anti-war songs in history, and explains how the current political climate has re-energized his bandBrian HaackGRAMMYs Jul 14, 2017 – 11:21 am GRAMMY.comTim McIlrath, frontman for Chicago-based melodic hardcore band Rise Against, says he and his band have found themselves feeling re-energized in light of the current U.S. political climate. Their latest album, 2017’s Wolves, reflects this new energy, and McIlrath was excited to discuss its subject matter in his recent sit-down with Steve Baltin for The Recording Academy.”This is such a crazy time in America right now,” McIlrath said. “I feel like Rise Against would have put out a different record had we not anticipated all this stuff happening. So we’re here now tapping into the friction that exists, and we’re gonna continue working on music and find something that tries to hit home with a lot of confused people out there right now.”Alongside in-depth discussion on the band’s approach to their current tour schedule, including details of their experiences co-headlining shows with GRAMMY winners the Deftones as well as solo headline gigs at iconic venues such as Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium, McIlrath dove into an explanation of a couple songs he feels are the best politically motivated anti-establishment tracks in history:Baltin: I asked Neil Young this same question. What is the greatest protest song of all time? Is there one?  McIlrath: The one that hits home for me, maybe because you just said Neil Young, is “Ohio.” I love the song “Ohio.” I love what it’s talking about and the story behind “Ohio” too is that Neil Young wrote it the second that he saw that happen — he was in the studio that day. So, you can kind of hear the urgency behind the message in the song, that he had to get it out there and talk about what was happening. It was probably the closest thing that Neil Young had to social media back then. You know, we need to put a song out right now. It needs to be talking about this immediately. So “Ohio” is still a timeless protest song.[Neil Young’s] answer was you can’t pick one because all of them are needed, so his was very diplomatic. You know what the underrated protest song is? “Civil War,” by Guns N’ Roses. I was going through that song recently and just like, Axl talking about the war machine and Vietnam, you know, we think of Axl as this insane Sunset Strip nihilistic kind of guy, and there was a lot of important stuff that I certainly missed when I was a kid listening to that song, and it only hit me later. It was a message in here, it was a message that you weren’t hearing from hair and metal in the ’80s, and he would talk about it, which I thought was bold. Protest music is probably boldest where you least expect it.Check out the full interview with Tim McIlrath: A re-energized era for Rise Against News last_img read more

The band reformed through the years with varying constellations of musicians surrounding prolific guitarist, composer and producer Robert Fripp. Celebrating 50 years of rock, 2019’s “KC 50” brings together a 50-concert tour, 50 weekly releases of tracks to digital, multiple box sets, a documentary and more, including art and KC 50 T-shirts.The band’s first formal rehearsal was on Jan. 13, 1969. They gained an immediate following with their seventh performance that summer on July 5 as the opening act for an audience of a half million at London’s Hyde Park who turned out to see the Rolling Stones’ free “Stones In The Park” concert. Their debut album was released that fall. Even though their original lineup fell apart, their cult following and track-record of musical experimentation have continued grown ever since. Email King Crimson Tour And Special Releases Celebrate Band’s 50th Anniversary Twitter DGM announced the KC 50 rollout on Jan. 13, the anniversary of the band’s fateful first rehearsal. The DGM label was first formed by Fripp in 1992 to increase his creative control. Its initials stand for Discipline Global Mobile, a reference in part to the band’s 1981 album Discipline, which also supplied DGM’s knot-logo from its cover art. KC 50 is high-concept enough to be mind-blowing in itself and is helpfully summarized at Pitchfork. The first of the 50 planned digital track-releases dropped on Jan. 13 as well. The first set of announced dates for their planned 50-concert celebration tour were also announced with tickets available at Ticketmaster. The announced dates kick off in Germany in June, with three nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall June 18–20. The three U.S. venues announced so far are Sept. 3 at Los Angeles’ Greek Theater, Sept. 10 at Chicago’s Roosevelt University Auditorium followed by Sept. 21 at New York’s Radio City Music Hall.The King Crimson documentary Cosmic F*Kc is expected by the end of 2019, incorporating rare archival footage. In June, Sid Smith’s long out-of-print biography In The Court Of King Crimson will be re-issued in a revised and expanded edition.  Merch to come includes KC 50 T-shirts as well as a limited edition of 200 silk-screens of the band’s debut-album cover art, signed by Fripp. In addition to DGM’s collectors’ club musical releases reaching their 50th by year’s end, four musical compilations are anticipated. A six-LP vinyl set covering 1972–74 will be released in February. May will see the a release of Heaven & Earth, comprising King Crimson’s studio albums from the late 90’s through 2008. October will bring the release of the band’s complete 1969 recordings as well as an Oct. 12 box-set release of In The Court of the Crimson King loaded with live recordings and extras including DGM Companion Vol 1, an illustrated coffee-table volume commemorating the album, edited by Fripp and his DGM co-founder David Singleton.With all of these treats are in-store for anybody diving into King Crimson’s body of work, the vitality and imagination behind this KC 50 anniversary help demonstrate that rock’s mind-bending superpowers are alive and well.Phil Collins ReImagined By Youngblood HawkeRead morelast_img read more

City Police Take on School Officer Video Probe

first_imgBALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police have announced they will take on the criminal investigation related to a video showing a school police officer hitting and kicking a young man inside a city school. City police will handle the investigation at the request of school police acting chief Akil Hamm, city police spokesman T. J. Smith said in a Wednesday statement. The two forces are separate agencies. City police are also providing a liaison for the school police department’s internal investigation, Smith said.“Acting Chief Hamm contacted me on Wednesday evening and requested our assistance in this investigation,” Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said in the statement. “This is the right thing to do in a case like this and I have assigned (the Special Investigation Response Team) to handle all aspects of this criminal investigation.”Baltimore City Public Schools released a statement saying their own officials are “vigorously investigating” the Tuesday incident at REACH Partnership School. In a cellphone video shot by a student, a school police officer can be seen slapping and kicking a young man while another officer stands by.Baltimore state’s attorney’s office spokeswoman Rochelle Ritchie said prosecutors are working closely with the city’s police department and the school police to investigate the incident.It’s not clear what led up to the incident, or what happened after the camera stopped recording, but Hamm said the officers were called to the school for a report of intruders on campus. Both were on foot patrol between schools and were armed at the time of the incident, he said.Hamm also said the male was not a student at REACH. But Lauren Geisser, an attorney for him, says he is a 10th-grade student at the school. Geisser said the school provided a printout that listed his name on the school’s roster.Another attorney at the firm, Charles Gilman, said the teen was “a little traumatized” by the encounter.last_img read more
