The report, issued by the Office of the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process (UNSCO), notes that “despite a number of international efforts over the past six months to advance the two-state solution, last year has been characterized by a continued lack of progress on the political front.” In contrast to recommendations outlined in the July 2016 report by the Middle East Quartet, there has been “a surge in Israeli settlement-related activity and a continued high rate of demolitions in Palestinian and Bedouin communities” as well as “continuing acts of violence against civilians, signs of a deepening political rift between Gaza and the West Bank, and continued military build-up and firing of rockets by extremist groups in Gaza.”This environment threatens the erosion of the achievements of the Palestinian state building effort, according to the report. “The institutions of Palestinian governance remain vulnerable to political instability and require affirmative steps to protect and advance state-building efforts,” the authors wrote.The report also notes a “deepening political rift” between Gaza and the West Bank. Tensions between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas are aggravating a “difficult situation in the Gaza Strip” with an intra-Palestinian disagreement over issues such as electricity access and payment of salaries.Analysing the impact of the Hamas take-over ten years ago and the ensuing Israeli closures and conflicts, the report notes that “Gaza is facing a downward spiral of de-development, while the people in Gaza are caught in a cycle of humanitarian need and perpetual aid dependency.”The report covers the period from 15 September 2016 to 15 April 2017.It will be presented to the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee (AHLC) at its bi-annual meeting in Brussels on 4 May. The Committee, chaired by Norway and co-sponsored by the European Union and the United States, serves as the principal policy-level coordination mechanism for development assistance to the Occupied Palestinian Territory.
The UK motor industry is home to some of the cleanest and most efficient automotive production plants in Europe, according to the sector’s tenth annual sustainability report launched today by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. Over the last decade, UK automotive manufacturing facilities have cut: CO2 emissions per vehicle by 40.9%water use per vehicle by 45.3% – 40% better than the European averagewaste to landfill per vehicle by 70.5%energy use per vehicle by 24.2% – 12% lower than the European averageLooking at the environmental and economic progress of the UK motor industry over the last decade, the report shows that from 1999 to 2008, the sector increased its turnover by 19% to £52.5 billion with an export industry valued at £26.6 billion – 10.6% of Britain’s total. Over 1.5 million cars and commercial vehicles are produced in the UK each year as well as three million engines, contributing £10 billion added value to the UK economy. The tenth annual sustainability report collates data from car and commercial vehicle manufacturing sites across the UK, representing more than 98% of UK automotive manufacturing operations. It can be downloaded from the home page of the SMMT website at www.smmt.co.uk. As production has improved, UK manufacturing plants have reduced total energy per vehicle and have been at the forefront of renewable energy use. These efforts mean that the UK uses 12% less energy than the European average and through the use of wind turbines alone, 11,500 tonnes of CO2 are saved each year. “I am proud of the achievements industry has made during the last decade and the way it has responded to the unprecedented challenges of the recession. Manufacturing will play an important part in the economic recovery and the transition to low carbon vehicles offers new and exciting opportunities for the UK motor industry,” commented Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive. Everitt continued, “The transition to a low-carbon economy through investment and demonstration of ultra-low-carbon technologies is crucial to our future. The New Automotive Innovation and Growth Team’s vision aims to ensure the UK motor industry remains a global force playing a significant role in the development of exciting, low-carbon transport solutions. We fully support this vision and believe now is the time to take action.” ‘Towards Sustainability – The Automotive Sector Strategy’ was first published in March 2000, using 1999 data. The automotive sector was the first to introduce such an approach which committed industry to balance economic progress with environmental care and social responsibility.

Toshiba vise les 1.000 milliards de yens grâce au nucléaireCe n’est plus tant le nucléaire que le renforcement de la sûreté des sites qui fait les affaires des grosses sociétés industrielles. Ainsi, le conglomérat japonais Toshiba vise un chiffre d’affaires de 1.000 milliards de yens (près de 10 milliards d’euros) en 2017-2018 dans ce secteur.Le groupe japonais Toshiba espérait tirer, avant l’accident de Fukushima en mars 2011, environ 1.000 milliards de yens (près de 10 milliards d’euros) de l’activité nucléaire pour l’année 2015-2016. Après la catastrophe du tsunami, le groupe a toutefois dû revoir ses objectifs mais ne s’est pas découragé pour autant, au contraire. Il a même parfaitement su s’adapter. “Nous voulons contribuer au renforcement de la sûreté des installations nucléaires au Japon et à l’étranger”, a ainsi expliqué le PDG de Toshiba, Norio Sasaki, lors d’une conférence de presse.Le groupe est déjà fortement impliqué dans le traitement du complexe Fukushima Daiichi puisque c’est lui qui avait fourni les équipements du site. Il s’occupe notamment de la décontamination des dizaines de milliers de tonnes d’eau qui ont servi au refroidissement des réacteurs et piscines de désactivation du combustible. De plus, rien qu’en s’attelant au démantèlement de cette usine, il y a du travail pour environ 40 ans.Mais Toshiba souhaite profiter de ce contexte pour sécuriser d’autres centrales non seulement au Japon, où les 50 réacteurs sont à l’arrêt, mais aussi à l’étranger. Le tout sans cesser : d’une part d’honorer les commandes de réacteurs qui lui sont faites dans le monde (via la société américaine de conception d’équipements nucléaires Westinghouse, qu’elle détient), d’autre part de développer des modèles réduits baptisés 4S (très sûrs, petits et simples de l’anglais “super safe, small et simple”).Des batteries de véhicules électriques et des appareils plus écologiquesÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Toutefois, Toshiba ne s’arrête pas là et ambitionne de profiter des besoins croissants en énergies renouvelables (hydraulique, éolienne, solaire, géothermique, piles à combustible), aussi bien au Japon que dans les pays émergents. La société estime que les revenus tirés de cette activité pourraient atteindre 350 milliards de yens (près de 3,5 milliards d’euros) dès 2015-2016.Enfin, le groupe espère être en pôle position : pour construire des infrastructures de distribution électrique de nouvelle génération (“smart grid”), grâce notamment à des systèmes de contrôle de consommation et de mesure en temps réel (compteurs intelligents) ; pour obtenir des marchés dans la mise au point de batteries pour véhicules électriques mais aussi pour être leader dans la conception d’appareils électroniques et électroménagers dotés de vertus écologiques.Au final, Toshiba table sur une augmentation annuelle de 12 % de son chiffre d’affaires dans l’activité des infrastructures (incluant les divisions énergétiques) pour atteindre 3.240 milliards de yens (32 milliards d’euros) en 2014-2015. Le secteur des composants électroniques devrait atteindre 2.060 milliards de yens en 2014-2015, autant que celui des appareils électroniques (dont les PC et TV). Toutes branches confondues, Toshiba escompte un chiffre d’affaires de 7.800 milliards de yens (près de 78 milliards d’euros) en 2014-2015, contre 6.400 milliards attendus pour cette année.Le 21 mai 2012 à 20:16 • Maxime Lambert
The Leicester City manager knows that the first game at King Power Stadium without owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha will be a tough testSaturday will be the first time Leicester City plays at home since owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and five others perished on a helicopter crash.And for the Foxes’ manager Claude Puel, the match against Burnley will be a difficult one.“We tried to work a little on Wednesday – it was a light training session after the journey,” he told Sky Sports.“It’s not easy to prepare this game but I think the togetherness between ourselves is a good feeling.”Maguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“It gives us good energy, fantastic strength and I think it will compensate with our spirit and positive attitude and all the support from our fans,” he added.“I think we need to find the right balance between the emotion and our concentration and focus.”“It’s the most important to manage our emotion around the next game and to have the possibility to give a good response,” he concluded.“We need to find this right balance. Of course, we did not have a lot of training sessions but this journey was important for us.”
CAIRO (AP) — Angry protests over an anti-Islam film spread across the Muslim world Friday, with demonstrators scaling the walls of U.S. embassies in Tunisia and Sudan and torching part of a German embassy. Amid the turmoil, Islamic militants waving black banners and shouting “God is great” stormed an international peacekeepers base in Egypt’s Sinai and battled troops, wounding four Colombians.Egypt’s new Islamist president went on national TV and appealed to Muslims to not attack embassies, denouncing the violence earlier this week in Libya that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador. Mohammed Morsi’s first public move to restrain protesters after days of near silence appeared aimed at repairing strains with the United States over this week’s violence.Throughout the region, security forces struggled to rein in protesters. Police in Cairo prevented stone-throwing demonstrators from nearing the U.S. Embassy, firing tear gas and deploying armored vehicles in a fourth day of clashes in the Egyptian capital. At least three protesters were killed around the region.The day of protests, which spread to around 20 countries, started small and mostly peacefully in countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The most violent demonstrations took place in the Middle East. In many places, only a few hundred took to the streets, mostly ultraconservative Islamists — but the mood was often furious. The demonstrators came out after weekly Friday Muslim prayers, where many clerics in their mosque sermons urged congregations to defend their faith, denouncing the obscure movie produced in the United States that denigrated the Prophet Muhammad. It was a dramatic expansion of protests that began earlier this week and saw assaults on the U.S. embassies in Egypt and Yemen and the storming of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

It’s so small that it’s practically unnoticeable. However, it’s something long considered inappropriate by publishers who prided themselves on the separation of editorial independence from the influence of marketers.Ironically or not, ASME’s first editorial guideline for magazines is “Don’t Print Ads on Covers” citing the cover as “the editor and publisher’s brand statement.” It’s paradoxical as Time Inc.’s chief content officer Norman Pearlstine, a champion of the idea, is on the ASME board of directors.”You can either say this is a groundbreaking decision to put ads on covers after 91 years in the business or you can say this is a relatively modest reference that catches up to what’s going on in the industry,” Pearlstine, told Ad Age, who broke the story. “What we didn’t want to do is to be perceived…trying to hide from it.”Ad Age’s Michael Sebastian noted that cover ads would likely “both arouse consternation and encourage others to follow.” He also points to lags in revenue for the company as a chief reason why a move like this would be necessary and a big step for the struggling industry at large.“The magazines’ recent ads, though seemingly innocuous, may herald the beginning of a new age in print advertising,” remarked New York Observer’s Madeline Berg. “Time Inc. is apparently considering running ads across the bottom of covers and in the table of contents, another spot long considered off limits.”Money woes aside, not everyone is greenlighting this idea.“You can go ahead and mark May 22, 2014, as the day magazine covers died,” wrote FishbowlNY’s Chris O’Shea of the cover ad decision. “Eventually magazine covers will look like NASCAR cars, completely covered in ads. It’ll be like a fun, sad game—try to figure out what magazine this is!” Before officially separating from parent Time Warner, Time Inc. has been making big changes.The nation’s largest magazine publishing company, which is set to begin publicly trading on the New York Stock Exchange in just two weeks, has been making bold choices in preparation of the move like effecting 500 layoffs and restructuring senior-level executives.However, those moves don’t bust industry norms in favor of taboo decisions that directly contrast widely accepted guidelines set by the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME). Time Inc. will run very small ads sponsored by Verizon Wireless on the covers of two of its top brands—flagship title TIME and Sports Illustrated—the next two weeks. Subscribers can find the miniature banner-style ad in the mailing label area that directs readers to a page where a traditional ad can be viewed, while newsstand copies will print the ad by the bar code only.

Richard Drew/APAccording to reporting by CNBC, Cubeyou collected data from Facebook users through personality quizzes “for non-profit academic research” developed with Cambridge University, and then sold the data to advertisers.As the Facebook scandal over Cambridge Analytica’s misuse of the personal data of millions of users continues to unfold, Facebook is suspending another data analytics firm over similar allegations.According to reporting by CNBC, Cubeyou collected data from Facebook users through personality quizzes “for non-profit academic research” developed with Cambridge University — then sold the data to advertisers.Cubeyou denies wrongdoing, and Cubeyou CEO Federico Treu told CNBC that it “had the rights disclaimers on a separate site.” The personality quiz websites at the center of the allegations were jointly developed with Cambridge University’s Psychometrics Center. Its director, John Rust, told NPR that contrary to what CNBC reported, users “consented to their data being used for both academic and business purposes.”Even still, the new allegations raise questions about how widespread the misuse of data was among Facebook’s third-party app developers.“These are serious claims and we have suspended CubeYou from Facebook while we investigate them,” Ime Archibong, Facebook vice president of product partnerships, told CNBC. “If they refuse or fail our audit, their apps will be banned from Facebook.”The claims here have clear parallels to Cambridge Analytica, a British political consulting firm that obtained data of 87 million users — those who took a personality quiz, and their friends.On Monday, Facebook will begin informing those users who were impacted by the data grab, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify to lawmakers on Tuesday and Wednesday.Cambridge’s Psychometrics Centre is linked to the personality quizzes of both Cubeyou and Cambridge Analytica. Facebook’s Archibong told CNBC that the company is asking U.K. authorities to request information about “the development of apps in general by its Psychometrics Centre given this case and the misuse by [Aleksandr] Kogan,” the professor who developed the Cambridge Analytica quiz.According to the BBC, “Cambridge University denied working with Cambridge Analytica or its parent company SCL and said it had never provided any data, algorithms or expertise.”Rust, the center director, stressed that its “apps have at all times followed Facebook’s developer policies and the use of data collected by them has always been in line with consent given by their users.”He added that “several of CubeYou’s claims on its blog appear to be misleading and we have contacted them to request clarification.”Cubeyou’s website says it offers marketers “all the best consumer data sources in one place,” including information gathered from social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.The quizzes in question, called “Apply Magic Sauce” and “You are what you like,” predict a quiz-taker’s “psycho-democratic profile” based on what they have liked and posted on Facebook or Twitter.Facebook is initiating ways to make it easier for users to understand how their data is being used.“Starting Monday, we’re going to start rolling out to everyone in the world, right on the top of their news feed, a place where you can see all the apps you’ve shared your data with and a really easy way to delete them,” Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg told NPR last week.As NPR’s Aarti Shahani reported, Facebook says it is also taking steps to limit other kinds of data sharing:“For example, if I’m advertising an event, if I’m organizing an event on Facebook, it used to be that the people who are going to join my event would be visible to third-party developers, but Facebook is changing that so that now the guest list is guarded. The comments for the event are guarded as one step. And really, you know, what you’re seeing is Facebook sending out the message incrementally that, hey, we know that our borders were porous, but we’re building a wall.”Copyright 2018 NPR.

By taking users back to 1964, the last time that the Olympic Games were held in Tokyo, it is intended as a celebration of the Japanese capital in the lead up to next year’s summer Olympics and Paralympic GamesThe experience is created by NHK Enterprises (NEP) and Japanese private sector firm Rhizomatiks, in tandem with variety show and interactive VR entertainment producer Toshio Tsuchiya. The 5-minute demo for SXSW attendees employs NEP’s Data Transfer Engine, which “enables clear visualization of global scale big data through computer graphics to finalize the delivery of the content.” It is streamed via HTC Vive immersive head-mounted-displays. By using old photographs gathered at that time, the producers have reproduced a past environment. Initial focus is on the busy Shibuya district, which includes the Hachiko statue at Shibuya’s JR train station, the Tokyo Cultural Center (Tokyo Bunka Kaikan), Miyamasu-zaka Hill, and the location where the current Shibuya 109 building currently stands.“The resulting product demonstrates the possibility for curious and nostalgic minds to revisit any place at any time in history,” NEP said in a statement. The producers are appealing to the public for more material.“Imagine witnessing a historic moment that changed the world, experiencing a legendary concert with many people, or retracing the nostalgic streets where you had many dates with a loved one when you were young. These are feats requiring travel beyond space-time that were merely human dreams: dreams that can soon be realized through VR technology and new ideas,” said Daisaku Kawase, project leader and executive producer, production headquarters at NEP.NEP previously used SXSW to showcase the world’s first 8K:VR Theater in 2016.Rhizmomatiks and Tsuchiya had also teamed up before, developing interactive “Parallel VR” suspense drama “Ghost Keiji Nishou Sousatsujin Jiken,” available on Playstation VR, Android and iOS.
Explore further More information: Is a tabletop search for Planck scale signals feasible, arXiv:1211.3816 [gr-qc] arxiv.org/abs/1211.3816AbstractQuantum gravity theory is untested experimentally. Could it be tested with tabletop experiments? While the common feeling is pessimistic, a detailed inquiry shows it possible to sidestep the onerous requirement of localization of a probe on Planck length scale. I suggest a tabletop experiment which, given state of the art ultrahigh vacuum and cryogenic technology, could already be sensitive enough to detect Planck scale signals. The experiment combines a single photon’s degree of freedom with one of a macroscopic probe to test Wheeler’s conception of “spacetime foam”, the assertion that on length scales of the order Planck’s, spacetime is no longer a smooth manifold. The scheme makes few assumptions beyond energy and momentum conservations, and is not based on a specific quantum gravity scheme. Set up of suspended blocks showing (dotted) the alternative paths for the photon. E is the single-photon emitter, D and D’ are the single-photon detectors. BS denotes the beamsplitter and M the mirror. DL is the fiber optics delay line, and EB are the electronics that trigger D and D’ through cable C. The optical elements to widen the beam before and focus it after each block are left out for clarity. In the real experiment the blocks would hang side by side.

Bekenstein, of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, has proposed a simple experiment in a paper he’s uploaded to the preprint server arXiv, that he says could be used to measure quantum foam. Instead of looking to ever faster particle accelerators, he proposes using an ordinary block of glass, a laser and a detector. Hi-fi single photons This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. © 2012 Phys.org Quantum foam is a term used to describe the non-smooth nature of the universe. It was coined by John Wheeler who in the 1960’s noted that according to quantum mechanics, certain properties of spacetime have some degree of uncertainty related to them. Later researchers have expanded on the idea, suggesting that on a quantum scale, the universe is made up of individual units which are thought to be rife with very small black holes that pop in and out of existence, resulting in foam-like images for those who try to imagine what it might look like.Until now, trying to measure, or prove that theories about quantum foam are true have failed due to the extraordinarily small scale of the particles involved, 1.6 × 10-35, known as the Planck length. In his paper, Bekenstein proposes an entirely new way to approach the problem. He says all that needs to be done is to fire a single photon through a block of glass and then measure how much the block moves.The idea is to use just the right size block and wavelength of a photon such that if the photon did move the block’s center of mass, it would be just one Planck length. If the universe is truly grainy, as theorized, the photon would encounter one of the tiny units which would inhibit its progress; if not, the photon would pass all the way through with no problem. Because theory suggests there are a very large number of undetectably small black holes in every part of the universe, it would seem reasonable to assume that the glass block’s center of mass could fall into one, which would of course impede the movement of the block. Thus to detect the presence of theoretical foam, all researchers would have to do is fire many individual photons through a block of glass and see how many make it through using a detector on the other side.
Apple is known for designing its products in a way that except for Apple experts none can easily repair them in case of any issues. For this, it seems the company is trying hard to kill the ‘Right To Repair’ bill in California which might work against Apple. The ‘Right To Repair’ bill which has been adopted by 18 states, is currently under discussion in California. According to this bill, consumers will get the right to fix or mod their devices without any effect on their warranty. The company has managed to lobby California lawmakers and pushed the bill till 2020. In a recent report by Motherboard, an Apple representative and a lobbyist has been privately meeting with legislators in California to encourage them to go off the bill. The company is doing so by stoking fears of battery explosions for the consumers who attempt to repair their iPhones. The Apple representative argued that the consumers might hurt themselves if they accidentally end up puncturing the flammable lithium-ion batteries in their phones. In a statement to The Verge, California Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman, who first introduced the bill in March 2018 and again in March 2019, said, “While this was not an easy decision, it became clear that the bill would not have the support it needed today, and manufacturers had sown enough doubt with vague and unbacked claims of privacy and security concerns.” Last quarter, Apple’s iPhone sales slowed down so the company anticipates that consumers may buy new handsets instead of getting the old one repaired. But the fact that the batteries might get punctured might bother many and will surely have enough speculations around it. Kyle Wiens, iFixit co-founder laughs at the fact about getting an iPhone battery punctured during a repair. Though he admits the possibility but according to him, it rarely happens. Wiens says, “Millions of people have done iPhone repairs using iFixit guides, and people overwhelmingly repair these phones successfully. The only people I’ve seen hurt themselves with an iPhone are those with a cracked screen, cutting their finger.” He further added, “Whether it uses gasoline or a lithium-ion battery, most every car has a flammable liquid inside. You can also get badly hurt if you’re changing a tire and your car rolls off the jack.” But a recent example from David Pierce, WSJ tech reviewer, justifies the explosion. With so much talk around repairing and replacing, it’s difficult to predict if the ‘Right to Repair’ bill with respect to iPhones, will come in force anytime soon. Only in 2020 we will get a clearer picture of the bill. Also, we will come to know if consumer safety is at stake or is it related to the company benefits.
