After Paris Attacks Morocco Launches New Counterterrorism Plan

Rabat – The Moroccan government will implement a new counterterrorism plan to protect the country from any terrorism threat. The new plan will take effect immediately until the end of 2015.The Moroccan Ministry of the Interior in cooperation with the General Directorate for National Security (DGSN) and the General Directorate of Territorial Surveillance (DGST) have designed “the details of a high-level security plan to confront terrorism in Morocco” according to Moroccan daily Al-Massae, in its Tuesday issue.The new strategy has been developed as a result of the ISIS terrorist attacks that hit Paris last Friday, claiming the lives of nearly 130 people and leaving 350 others injured. “The terms of the anti-terrorism plan were put into execution and the instructions to the relevant departments will be applied across the whole country,” the same source revealed.“Special units consisting of police officers have set up crisis cells at police headquarters of major cities, ready to receive alerts and coordinate with the General Directorate of National Security in case of a terrorist threat,” the daily added.The new counterterrorism plan will increase surveillance at all Moroccan borderlines and tighten security to foreign admissions into the territory.“It is expected that a joint brigade [under the supervision of the Prosecutor General] made up of officers of the DGST, the gendarmerie, kingpins and pashas be set up to coordinate actions to counter any terrorist threat,” the daily concluded.The high-security plan is set to stay in effect until the end of the year and to secure the New Year festivities throughout Morocco.Morocco has been immune from terrorist attacks since April 2011 when an explosion at a café in Marrakech killed 17 people, most of them tourists.Conversely, the Maghreb region has seen a surge in terrorist acts between 2011 and 2014, as reported by Spain’s Instituto Elcano. read more

Moroccos Aouda Saadia High School Wins Zayed Future Energy Award in

Rabat – The Aouda Saadia High School in Marrakech has won the Zayed Future Energy Prince in the Global High School-Africa category.The high school is an all-girls institution, which comprises of pupils from “modest families of artisans and farmers,” according to the organizers.The award was handed by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, to Fatima Kander, a teacher at the institution, during a ceremony held on January 15, to mark the opening of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW). The Zayed Future Energy Award forms part of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, in recognition of the importance of the renewable energy project featured by the Moroccan high school.The Aouda Saadia school plans to add solar water heaters, photovoltaic panels and LED light bulbs to reduce the energy use of the school and provide hot showers, according to the competition’s official website.The school also aims to install floor lamps to light the school at night, so that students are safe during night-classes in service of local women seeking to become literate.The high school also plans to develop teaching modules, educational tools and training workshops for students, and to provide air conditioning for classrooms to help students concentrate, according to Zayed Future Energy organizers.Approximately 1,500 students pursue their education in the Aouda Saadia high school , which is located in the center of the medina of Marrakech. The girls school covers an area of 5 hectares. It has an environmental club, a nursery, a club and a well that operates based on a drop-by-drop technique.Kander told Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) that she is proud of this continental award, noting that it would help the high school to rationalize the use of energy.Established in 2008, the Zayed Future Energy Award is an international price initiated by UAE leaders. The prestigious award aims to reward and encourage leading institutions in the field of renewable energy and sustainability in the categories of Large Enterprise, Small and Medium Enterprises, NGOs and NPOs and school establishments. read more

UN calls for healthy diet exercise to fight rising death toll from

Launched in Rome by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), the report examines the best available scientific evidence on the relationship of diet, nutrition and physical activity to chronic illness such as cardiovascular diseases, several forms of cancer, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis and dental disease.“All countries must act more decisively to prevent chronic diseases by supporting healthier diet and physical activity behaviours,” the agencies said in a statement that stressed the problem in the developing world. “Most developing countries simply do not have the resources in their health systems, and cannot afford to manage the growing burden of chronic disease in addition to their existing health problems.”The result of a two-year-long joint FAO/WHO expert consultation, the report – Diet, Nutrition and the Prevention of Chronic Diseases – comes against a background of statistics showing a rapid increase in chronic diseases, which in 2001 contributed about 59 per cent of the 56.5 million total reported deaths in the world and 46 per cent of the global burden of disease.It concludes that a diet low in saturated fats, sugars and salt, and high in vegetables and fruits, together with regular physical activity, will have a major impact on combating this high toll of death and disease.“Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancers, obesity – these are no longer rich country problems,” WHO Director-General Gro Harlem Brundtland said. “The majority of chronic disease cases are occurring in the developing world. Our experience shows us that even modest, but population-wide interventions on diet and physical activity can produce significant changes in the overall chronic disease burden in a surprisingly short time.”FAO Director-General Jacques Diouf said the report would help both FAO and WHO devise strategies to promote nutritious diets and healthier eating habits. “Today, only a minority of people in the world are eating the amounts of fruit and vegetables recommended by this report,” he declared. “Our organizations are facing a strong challenge on how to increase supplies of fruits and vegetables in a way that will allow all people everywhere in the world to have access to them.”The agencies stressed that solutions to the global surge in chronic diseases would require stronger links between those involved in health and agriculture, at global, regional and national levels. The report is based on the collective judgement of 30 independent experts with a global perspective, who worked with around 30 of their peers to review the best available evidence on diet, nutrition and its effects on chronic diseases.The report’s recommendations on diet include limiting fat to between 15 and 30 per cent of total daily energy intake, and saturated fats to less than 10 per cent. It suggests that carbohydrates should provide the bulk of energy requirements – between 55 and 75 per cent of daily intake, but that free, or added, sugars should remain beneath 10 per cent.Daily intake of salt, which should be iodized, should be restricted to less than 5 grams a day, while the intake of fruit and vegetables should be at least 400 grams. The recommended protein intake is 10 to 15 per cent. The report also notes that physical activity is a key factor in determining the amount of energy spent each day and is fundamental to energy balance and weight control. One hour per day of moderate-intensity activity, such as walking, on most days of the week, is needed to maintain a healthy body weight.Food and related companies are a critical element in developing a long-term solution, Dr. Brundtland said, noting that she would be meeting next month with senior executives from major food and beverage companies, and also with representatives of the key professional and consumer non-governmental organizations (NGOs). All of this input will be considered in developing the Global Strategy, to be finalized for the WHO Executive Board in January 2004.The two agencies note that creating an environment in which the healthy choice is the easy choice has significant implications for consumer information and labelling and for education and recreation. It also has important consequences for agricultural production and processing methods as well as trade. It is for this reason that the two agencies have committed to working closely on diet and chronic disease prevention. read more

Coordinated international effort needed to clear Iraq of landmines – UN

“This is a humanitarian issue and needs all concerned players to collaborate in dealing with it,” UN Development Programme (UNDP) Senior Mine Action Adviser Salomon Schreuder said of a new Iraqi Government report released today.“Mine Action in Iraq will require the support of the international community with their human, financial and technical resources,” he added. “The aim of the survey is to determine the socio-economic impact of landmines and explosive ordnance on communities and categorize them as high, medium and low impacted. Then we can prioritize our mine clearance activities.”On Monday, Staffan de Mistura, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Deputy Special Representative for Humanitarian, Reconstruction and Development Affairs in Iraq, announced that nearly 500 square kilometres of land had already been cleared of landmines over the past year thanks to UN-backed efforts.“Decades of wars and internal conflicts have left Iraq with a grave legacy,” Iraqi Deputy Minister of Planning and Development Cooperation Behnam Puttrus said today in Amman, Jordan, where he presented the provisional findings of the survey for Basrah, Al Samawah, Thi-Qar and Missan governorates.“The well-being of the civilian population is threatened by denying access to valuable resources. Dangerous areas cannot be farmed, but safe land is potentially productive land. Agricultural production feeds not only people but also development. Furthermore, in many parts of the country contamination is hindering the safe return of internally displaced persons and refugees,” he added. read more

Egypt manager believes Mohamed Salah will continue for Egypt

first_imgHector Cuper believes that Egypt’s star player Salah will not retire following the Pharaoh’s dismal World Cup showing in Group A.Egypt lost 2-1 in their final game to Saudi Arabia this evening with Salah scoring their only goal and his second of the tournament. نهاية المباراة ! #السعودية 2 – 1 #مصر #روسيا2018 pic.twitter.com/jS5FhBBNom— Egypt National Football Team (@Pharaohs) June 25, 2018Cuper spoke to the media post-match about the possibility of Salah quitting the national side:”I don’t think so, I don’t think so.”Paulo Dybala reveals a falling out with Jorge Sampaoli Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – July 12, 2019 After having a relatively good Copa America performance with Argentina, Paulo Dybala came out to reveal a fall out with Jorge Sampaoli.We’ve discussed how…“I don’t think it’s true because all of those who are here – and those who couldn’t come – really, really support and appreciate the opportunity of playing for the national team, so I don’t think that’s true.”Salah executed a delightful chip to give Egypt the lead against Saudi Arabia but they ultimately succumbed to their 3rd consecutive defeat.The Liverpool striker has done his best to guide them through, but having only just recovered from a shoulder injury and playing in a very low-quality Egyptian team, not even he has been able to galvanise the squad.Cuper, however, insisted that his team hadn’t played badly in Russia, as he continued: “I think we have played well, it’s true that the results weren’t good, we have lost all three matches,”“And I am disappointed that we have lost two games – one in the 90th minute (Uruguay), and the other one in the 95th minute (Saudi Arabia) – that’s what makes me sad and disappointed.”last_img read more

Anchorage Assembly considers labor law options

first_imgAnchorage Assembly members met Tuesday to continue the conversation about the municipality’s controversial labor law, AO-37. The labor subcommittee and community members debated Assembly Member Jennifer Johnston’s proposed revisions of the municipality’s old labor laws.In her version, unlike in AO-37, unions would still have the right to binding arbitration and the right to strike.However, her amended version of the labor law does give the administration more control over things like scheduling employees and equipment. But Johnston said the regulations could be negotiated.“And maybe the unions might know best,” she said, explaining that her version allows flexibility. “And if they know best they can plead their case and make their case. And if it’s a good case it should be probably accepted. And if at some point there was a mayor who didn’t accept their good case, that mayor and that administration has the full liability if something went wrong. Which, I’m sorry, but the union doesn’t have that liability. It doesn’t have that accountability.”Johnston said she wants to discuss the nuts and bolts of the labor laws with the community before bringing it to the Assembly.The president of the Anchorage Central Labor Council, Daniel Repasky said he appreciates Johnston’s attempt to fix the problems caused by AO-37.“There are some flaws in it, but I suspect that because of the make up of the assembly right now that if her ordinance goes forward, her changes, that they would be addressed by amendments from the assembly. So I could deal with that. But again I would prefer that AO-37 just disappear.”And it still could. Assembly member Dick Traini is proposing a motion to repeal AO-37 completely at the next Assembly meeting. Public comments will be taken on June 24.The city is also working with the state’s Division of Elections to determine how much it would cost to add the repeal vote to the November statewide ballot. If it does not go on the statewide ballot, the vote would be delayed until next April’s municipal elections. They’ll make the decision by July 7.last_img read more

Gold regains Rs 28000 level on safehaven demand

first_imgGold prices soared by Rs 710 on Tuesday to reach the Rs 28,000 mark again, after remaining under pressure for months due to a strengthening dollar.Overall, the yellow metal’s prices have risen by Rs 825 over the past eight trading session, reaching the highest levels in more than one year.The rally in gold prices was driven by a bullish trend in metal prices in the global markets, besides strong buying by jewellers to meet the demand in the ongoing wedding season.A depreciating rupee has also helped the prices go up. Indian rupee breached the 68-level against the dollar again on 9 February, as domestic stock markets extended losses for the second consecutive session.The falling rupee made gold imports costlier, helping the metal extend its gains.In the overseas markets, gold prices traded at a multi-month high of $1,190 per ounce, as equity and oil markets came under severe selling pressure. Crude oil prices continued to trade at over-a-decade lows of $33 a barrel, as oversupply issues continue to weigh on the prices.Falling oil prices have intensified concerns over global growth, with stock markets coming under heavy sell-off. The negative sentiment across these markets has increased the safe-haven appeal of gold, driving its prices higher.Uncertainty over further interest rate increase by the US Federal Reserve has also been supporting gold prices for the past few weeks.”Against the backdrop of growing fears about the global economy, plunging equity markets and falling bond yields, investors are seeking refuge in the safe haven that is gold. A weaker US dollar and the pricing-out of Fed rate hikes are also helping,” said Commerzbank Corporates & Markets in a note.Silver prices also surged by Rs 1,180 to Rs 37,230 per kg on increased demand from industrial units and coin manufacturers.last_img read more

Didnt show my tits or ass to grab audiences attention Lipstick Under

first_imgAahana KumraInstagramActress Aahana Kumra had become the talk of the town for portraying the role of gritty Leela, a young beautician, in 2016 Indian black comedy film, Lipstick Under My Burkha. She had let go her inhibitions and performed intense love making scenes with conviction which earned her a tag of a bold actress. But she believes in flauting her body of work rather than flaunting her own body on the screen to get noticed.With an emerging era of online streaming content, many OTT platforms offer uncensored web series/films for viewers to watch it on their handheld devices. Many aspiring actresses have taken up bold characters to play on screen and earned fame by shedding off their clothes in front of the camera.She recently revealed that she gets offered roles in many shows wherein her character demands to takes her clothes off on the screen. But she said that she chose to stay away from taking up such roles as she feels that one doesn’t need to flaunt their bodies to get audience’s attention. Aahana Kumra in Lipstick Under My BurkhaTwitter”I have stayed away from most of it. On a daily basis, I get offered shows that have some sexual character in it, where she has to show her boobs, butt-crack, and so on. Just because I did Lipstick Under My Burkha, it doesn’t mean that’s the only role I will do. I am very proud of my work that I have done in the last one year where not a single role of mine is a repeat of my previous character. I have not shown my tits or ass in those roles and still managed to grab the attention of audiences.

Entering The House of Waxwork An Interview with Kevin Bergeron

first_img FHTAGN & Loathing #1 Is the Horror Stoner Comedy We NeededRenegade Rule Dominates eSports and Friendship for an Epic Win So let’s talk about House of Waxwork. This is a gorgeous vinyl ST & comic combo. This reminds me of the old LP’s that came with tiny read along books. Only this is so much cooler!Kevin: Yeah, Waxwork Comics is our new company. It’s the publishing wing of Waxwork records. I should just probably call the company Waxwork Entertainment since we are branching out into so many different things. We used to work very closely with Jay Yuenger of White Zombie before he moved to Spain. He has mastered basically everything we have released for the first couple of years of Waxwork. He told me once that “There is no reason for the things you do in life to not be perfect.” He wasn’t sunning me, just giving me great advice. So I’ve put that effort into Waxwork from the beginning to make everything perfect.The whole thing got started when Suzy and I were on a business trip, and out of the blue I just said: “Let’s release comics!” So we’ve always wanted a publishing wing where we could release books or any kind of literature. We already had a solid background where we released vinyl. Why don’t we pair up comic books (something that we love) and marry it with something we’re experienced with, which is vinyl? So when we got back to the studio, we started developing it immediately. We’ve met so many creators in the process, and it became a big endeavor. We thought about tackling existing properties at first, but it dawned on us that we wanted to create our own universe and everything’s going to be original.I’m loving the old EC Comics feel the project gives off. I also noticed that you wrote one of the stories. How does it feel to now call yourself a comic writer?Kevin: It feels good! I really feel like the story that I wrote is strong. I have a background in writing, so I think there will be more opportunities for me to dive into more when I have time. I was also able to contribute a song as well to issue number one. Waxwork Records has been putting out quality vinyl re-releases of some of your favorite film soundtracks since 2013. Some famed selections include Creepshow, The Thing, Trick r’ Treat & Friday the 13th Parts II & III. With Waxwork co-creator Kevin Bergeron being surrounded by so many talented composers and artists, he wanted to venture into something a bit more unique, while at the same time keeping the house that Waxwork built strong including vinyl. The idea sparked to life! How about comics and graphic novels bundled with companion soundtracks on deluxe, colored vinyl? The rest was history.Waxwork has a lot of really amazing vinyl records out right now, but I see there is more on the rise than just music. I’d love to hear how Waxwork came to be.Kevin: Waxwork got started around January 2013. I had received some records for Christmas from my co-owner and partner Suzy. A lot of them were soundtracks to horror films I really enjoyed like The Shining. For a long time, I’ve been a big fan of horror film scores. I thought this was so rad and we saw new labels popping here and there putting them out. I have a history of recording and releasing music in previous bands and it felt right. But wanted to put our own spin on this and asked “How do we do it ourselves?” We wanted to figure out a way to actually acquire the master tapes to these recordings. We wanted to get in touch with the directors and composers and get the liner notes from them. Nobody else was doing that. It created the deluxe experience. For instance, it was really exciting getting The Exorcist tapes, that’s coming out soon and it is transferred from the original 1973 recordings.That’s nuts! I purchased the Mad, Mad Monster Party vinyl back when Waxwork released it. I was impressed by the design that went into it. It felt like the ultimate treatment.Kevin: A lot of those kinds of films never even received their own release commercially, and sometimes I feel that’s criminal. There sometimes have been shoddy CD releases of them, but why not track down the original masters (which we did) and release them on vinyl? Because even in 1968, that’s how you enjoyed music. It’s just a classy/intimate way of experiencing these soundtracks, and we’re really happy to keep doing it. Stay on target I don’t want to instigate anything. But I saw a little teaser on Instagram showing off retro Jason busting through a door from the new Friday the 13th: The Game. Can we expect Waxwork releases of the soundtrack anytime soon?Kevin: Oh we’re doin’ it. It’s going to be this crazy expansive double (maybe even triple) LP thing. I mean the game is so awesome and so much fun to play. And yes, it will be more than just retro Jason’s theme. It’s going to be all the music from the game. I even want to license that Misfits song that plays in the main cabin. We’re pretty tight with Jerry Only, so we just have to reach out at some point.Now that you’re answering my fanboy questions. I gotta ask about composer Douglas Pipes. You’ve re-released both the soundtracks he did for Trick r’ Treat and Krampus, can we expect a Monster House vinyl pressing?Kevin: Yeah actually, I have the masters right now. It’s now just working out a deal with the studio at this point. But yeah the music is ready to go. Michael and Douglas are great and so professional, I love those guys. We’re going to do more work with Michael down the road. But Douglas with House of Waxwork not only contributed a song for issue number one, but he is also going to be featured in issue number two with a song called Time Capsule. It’s classic Douglas Pipes with a hint of electronic tinge to it. I told him to pull out old synthesizers and just go nuts.I absolutely love everything Kevin, Suzy and the team at Waxwork put out, and I cannot wait to continue this haunted series. I’m like a kid again! House of Waxwork Issue #1 is available right now.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

See Others Punch Nazis Before Doing It Yourself in New Wolfenstein Comic

first_imgStay on target One of our most anticipated games for this year is Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Not only is it a sequel to one of the best single-player shooters in years, a game that like Doom 2016 had no business being as good as it was as an iD Software reboot, but it’s also super timely. The game is about hardened heroes taking the United States back from Nazis and fascists and white supremacists who have stolen control. Where have I heard that before?Along with its excellent gunplay, the modern Wolfenstein series (The New Order, The Old Blood, and now The New Colossus) has continued to surprise us with its shockingly excellent and soulful narrative. Characters have thoughtful inner monologues and relationships before slaughtering Nazis on the moon. If you’re looking for more of that narrative before the game drops in late October, check out the new Wolfenstein comic book from Titan Comics.(Note: embedded art not final)Having previously worked on other video game-into-comic adaptations like Assassin’s Creed Uprising, writer Dan Watters has no trouble easing readers into the status quo Machine Games has created. The first part of this two-part series features a handful of stories from the Wolfenstein world players can soon expect to re-enter.Things start bleak at a doomed sanctuary for underground American survivors of the Nazi regime’s extermination policies. It feels a bit like The Walking Dead except the dread comes from a hateful fascist smiling in your face and asking to drill for oil with his army behind him instead of a slow-moving horde of the best prosthetics AMC can buy.The writing captures the same kind of existential melancholy of life under Nazi rule that made such a strong impression in the game while still managing to coexist with schlock like giant Nazi robot death dogs. The realism just makes the catharsis of extravagant interactive revenge killings all the sweeter.From there things get stranger as we flashback to an actual Castle Wolfenstein and the occult experiments its kommandants are up to. Here the art by Piotr Kowalski and Ronilson Freire gets a little more room to shine. The first section features a fine 2D transliteration of the game’s violent art style, but this more bizarre location allows for unsettling eerie colors and alien creature design.There’s a definite Lovecraft vibe to the foreboding undersea structures and their inhabitants, which makes sense considering Lovecraft was also obsessed with blood purity to a racist degree. Based on past Wolfenstein games, and the fact that it is a video game, I’d guess the weird sci-fi terror teased here ends up being one of the bigger plot points of the game itself. The New Order did have you learning secret ancient Jewish super science from a Holocaust survivor after all. Exploring what would happen if the dumb lore Nazis loved so much was actually real has always been a huge part of Wolfenstein.Finally, after being alluded to throughout the prior sections as the infamous anarchist Terror-Billy, our hero B.J. Blazkowicz makes an appearance at the end of the issue for another 1940s flashback. It’s just some good old-fashioned, unapologetic, alternate World War II Nazi killing. Barring some extra blood and cursing, it’s an adventure that B.J.’s fellow time-displaced Hitler-punching antifa hero Captain America might have gone on. They have the same meaty Aryan hunk faces. It’s also an intense action sequence that might as well just be a playable set piece in the game and makes us wonder if we can expect more flashbacks in the finished product. There was already so much of that in DLC spin-off The Old Blood.Part One of the Wolfenstein prequel comic ends with a promise of a conclusion, which is good because all of its tales are definitely more set-ups than payoffs. But the real finale will be when we finally get our hands on Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus dropping October 27 on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. This comic, while a fine collection of Wolfenstein stories in its own right, is mostly made of teases that just have us more excited to play, which I suspect was the point all along. Gotta hear both sides, unless one side has literal Nazis on it.Wolfenstein #1 is available for $5.99.View as: One Page Slides1/51. Prepare yourself for the new Wolfenstein game with this two-part prequel comic.2. Nazis have stolen control of America in the Wolfenstein universe, too.3. Like the games, the comic meshes a melancholy and thoughtful tone with violent schlock, to surprisingly great effect.4. There are also strange, occult elements teased we suspect will play a big role in the game itself.5. Although it’s primarily a tease for the game, the Wolfenstein comic is a fine collection of stories about life under fascist rule. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

cruelty” The proposed budget released by the White House on Tuesday calls for $36 trillion in reduced spending “This administration and Republicans in Congress are mounting an onslaught against the needs of children and people with disabilities women and seniors” Clinton said Tuesday in an address at the annual gala for the Children’s Health Fund according to the Associated Press Clinton said the budget “shows an unimaginable level of cruelty and lack of imagination and disdain for the struggles of millions of Americans including millions of children” The budget which would still need to be approved by Congress includes cuts to programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and Social Security Disability Insurance as well as student loans and Medicaid Trump’s budget chief Mick Mulvaney defended the cuts on Tuesday “”We are no longer going to measure compassion by the number of programs or the number of people on those programs but the number of people we help get off of those programs” he said according to CNN “It hurts the well-being of children” Clinton said according to the AP “It’s time to send a resounding message that we will not stand for this attack on the most vulnerable among us” Earlier this month Clinton launched a Political Action Committee”Onward Together” dedicated to supporting liberal causes and politicians Write to Katie Reilly at KatieReilly@timecomIm waiting for Aliko Dangote Everyone is Africas richest man worth $247 billion (more than Carl Icahn George Soros and any number of lesser Western billionaires) is probably the most in-demand person at the World Economic Forum here in Abuja Nigeria He enters the Hilton on a red carpet a mere 30 minutes late with minders the head of his foundation and the second of his three grown daughters in tow The hotel employees literally bow before him lesser oligarchs wave and backslap and the merely rich try to bum rides on his private plane "I dont know what to do my wife really needs to get home" says an Indian businessman to one of the numerous Dangote staffers hovering nearby who smiles sympathetically and promises to look into things Dangote himself is unassuming A 57-year-old man with an almost shy smile hes a practicing Muslim that acquaintances call "generous" and "prayerful" Hes also a sharp elbowed business titan the 24th richest in the world who has survived ten different regimes in Nigeria building a $2 billion empire on cement sugar salt and more recently energy Dangote sat down with me in his suite at the Transcorp Hilton in Abuja Wednesday to discuss wealth power politics and the future of Africa Below are lightly edited excerpts from our talk: TIME: I hear you havent taken a vacation in 20 years Is that true Dangote: It used to be I was working very hard for a long time to build up my business Now I try to take a weeks vacation every two weeks We live in Lagos on Victoria Island but I like to go to Miami with my family I used to own two homes in Atlanta But it was a lot of trouble There are leaky roofs you have to call people It takes up too much time to own property everywhere Now I stay at the St Regis I used to like cars a lot too I had 25 of them Porches Ferraris I would drive from Lagos to Kano at 180 miles per hour But I stopped that after I had my second daughter You came from a certain amount of wealth What was your upbringing like My great-grandfather was a kola nut trader and the richest man in West Africa at the time of his death My father was a businessman and politician I was actually raised by my grandfather Its traditional in my culture for grandparents to take the first grandchild and raise it (Dangotes older sister died as a baby in a car accident) I had a lot of love and it gave me a lot of confidence You started with a loan from your uncle and built the most successful locally owned business conglomerate in Africa What were the turning points I always tried to move up the food chain I started with cement and then moved into textiles and banking When I was trading sugar I added salt and flour so that then we could do pasta And then I thought why not make the bag for it too So we started making packaging This is a very entrepreneurial culture but not a lot of people have your kind of success What did you do differently We had a lot of capital and we were able to build out our own power grid The number one thing that kills businesses in Africa is power or the lack of power We wanted to have our businesses completely independent with our own grid So we built it It took $12 billion Thats a lesson I took from the financial crisis Its so important to have capital At that point we had about $2 billion in debt from expanding so quickly so we had to scale back But if I had more capital [in hand] in 2008 I could have bought so many things homes airplanes land so cheaply Now you are going up the food chain again getting into energy and in particular oil and gas refining Nigeria has a lot of oil but not a lot of refined gas A lot of people feel that Africa could grow a lot faster with more of its own refinery capacity Yes well finish our refinery in 2017 and with it a petrochemical factory This should take us to the next level Its all about integrating what we have From the sugarcane we use we can make ethanol People say "why get into agriculture" but there is huge vertical integration between food and fuel and Africa has both Our rice and sugar business will create 180000 new jobs in the next four years We want to have a market capitalization of $100 billion by 2017 Its my goal for my 60th birthday Whats your goal for this World Economic Forum meeting I want people to understand whats really here I feel Nigeria is like Colombia People think about it based on information from 20 years ago You think about Colombia and all you think of is drug cartels but really theres a lot of investor interest Its the same here in Nigeria Its not the 1970s Things have changed But isnt that the crucial juxtaposition here You have growth but no security You have 8 % GDP growth and over 200 missing girls that have been taken from their homes by Boko Haram Its true It hasnt stopped business but the situation is out of hand I think the government is trying to get themselves together [around this issue] I think they have been taken by surprise there are people in places like Spain saying "where are these Nigerian girls" Its good that theyve asked the US and the UK to help And its important that the private sector do its part too Unless we create more jobs we wont eliminate Boko Haram Even if we do another such group will come We have to empower our people" Contact us at editors@timecomHans-Peter Braun Leibniz Universitt Hannover Germany Mistletoe is missing the machinery to make energy By Roni DenglerMay 3 2018 1:35 PM It’s a biological assembly line as classic as the Model T’s To produce energy mitochondrial power plants in a cell use electron transport chains to convert electrons to adenosine triphosphate (ATP) the cell’s energy currency Now two independent groups reveal how evolution has severely messed with the production line in European mistletoe the holiday adornment best known as an excuse for surprise smooches Researchers first noticed something was wrong when genomic sequencing turned up a dearth of mitochondrial genes for coding the protein subunits that make up the electron transport chain’s first station dubbed complex I Missing such a critical piece was unheard of in multicellular organisms Perhaps the genes had simply skipped from the mitochondrial to the nuclear genome researchers surmised But this seemed highly unlikely given the number of genes that had disappeared To find out which parts of the assembly line machinery had vanished researchers extracted proteins from mitochondria in the mistletoe’s leaves and compared them to those in a small flowering weed of the mustard family called Arabidopsis thaliana Although they found evidence for the machinery of other stations in the mistletoe transport chain neither team detected any sign of complex I they report today in Current Biology Furthermore the other transport chain stations—complexes II to V—were found to have 14% to 44% less protein than Arabidopsis did suggesting that mistletoe is unable to produce all the energy it needs using this system So how does mistletoe adjust Scientists say the flora has made some extreme adjustments to its metabolism But it also helps that the plants are parasites Hanging from trees rather than doorways the mistletoe can make ATP by breaking down sugar pilfered from their hosts That stolen sugar just might be enough to make up for their faulty electron transport chain assembly line With this level of openness and scrutiny, The letter’s signatories do not expect a quick response, “If the people in Benue and Cross River States had endorsed Senate President, Bicholim (88. twitter.
