Algeria Suspicious of Macron’s Sahel Counter-Terror Plans

Rabat – French President Emmanuel Macron has made Algeria suspicious of his counter-terrorism plans the Sahel.In Mali, one of the countries of the region facing a serious threat from armed groups including the recently formed Al Qaeda-linked Group to Support Islam and Muslims (GSIM), Macron pushed on Sunday for a joint regional force of 5,000 soldiers to help in military operations in the country’s north alongside French troops and the forces of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA).The force is going to be set by the so-called “G5 Sahel” countries which include Mali, Mauritania, Chad, Niger, and Burkina Faso. Macron’s visit to the torn-apart Sahel nation is the second since he was elected on May 14. Mali was the first non-European stop for Macron, arriving only five days after his election.The French president went to Gao in northern Mali, the site of France’s most important military base abroad hosting 1,600 soldiers.In Gao, Macron sent the first “negative” signal to Algeria, according to local press.“I have a strong request forSahel states and Algeria. We can’t show any weakness regarding terrorist groups,no matter the political or domestic reasons behind them,” he said in a press conference.Algerian journalist Fayçal Mettaoui described Macron’s statement as diplomatically “awkward.”Though not expressed formally, the Algerian state’s anger has been reflected in coverage by major local media  which generally express similar stances vis-à-vis Algeria’s relations with other countries, especially Morocco and France.Algerian media claimed Macron was insinuating that Algeria is turning a blind on the actions of some terrorist groups in Sahel.“This was ill-received in Algiers,” wrote news site Tout sur l’Algérie (TSA).In addition to the perceived accusation, Macron’s phone exchanges with Algerian president Abdelaziz Bouteflika suggest that Algerian officials believe the French president wants to use the country to help resume the peace process in Mali, while secretly planning to isolate Algeria.Algerian media sees the French president as wanting to dictate his own terms on the peace process in Mali. At the same time, his goal seems to corner Algeria despite its strategic importance and long-time influence in the region.“In less than two months, the French President called the Algeria head of state to talk to him about Mali, more than bilateral relations,” wrote TSA.According to TSA, Macron’s plans to isolate Algeria in Sahel were highlighted by a meeting in Sevilla, Spain on Monday where the interior ministers of France, Spain, Portugal and Morocco discussed fighting terrorism, illegal immigration, and organized crime with the help of the G5 Sahel countries.The news outlet said the joint force of the G5 Sahel countries was “under-equipped” and “under-financed,” a clear reference that they are not fit for the job in comparison with Algeria.Whether Algeria’s anger is justified is unclear, as the country holds contradictory positions. On one hand, Algiers maintains that this issue has be dealt with either through inter-African talks in the framework of bilateral relations, or “informally” in the ‘5+5’ dialogue grouping five Mediterranean European countries (France, Spain, ¨Portugal, Malta and Italy) and five African ones (Morocco, Algeria, Mauritania, Tunisia and Libya).Also, the Algerian military officially does not take part in operations outside its own borders, which means it would have likely turned down any invitation from Macron to join in a regional force like the G5 Sahel.Still, Algerian officials believe that the French president is trying to marginalize Algeria, to which the country’s media outlets have reacted negatively.“What is the significance of ‘fighting against terrorism and organized crime’ without Algeria, the country which most has frontiers with Sahel [countries], and which has the most expertise in countering terrorist groups and criminal networks in the region?”said TSA.“It is obvious that without Algeria, with its diplomatic, military and political influence in Africa, the G5 Sahel is going to do nothing.”Algerian officials showed enthusiasm for Macron during his presidential campaign. Described by former Algerian former minister of foreign affairs Ramtane Lamamra as a “friend of Algeria, the country’s high hopes for stronger relations with the former colonizer were partly crushed when Macron chose Morocco as his first destination to North Africa, thus breaking his predecessors’ tradition of choosing Algeria as the first country visited after an election win.Mistrust over France’s plans in the Sahel and its understanding of Algeria’s role has come as further proof for Algeria that Macron may not quite be the “friend” they had expected him to be. read more

Homeless man who brandished toy gun on Dart given 12month suspended sentence

first_img 11,822 Views Thursday 28 Jun 2018, 6:11 PM Image: Sebastian Duda via Shutterstock 27 Comments Image: Sebastian Duda via Shutterstock Homeless man who brandished toy gun on Dart given 12-month suspended sentence The man pleaded guilty to possessing a realistic imitation firearm at Connolly Station on 10 July 2017. Jun 28th 2018, 6:11 PM Share2 Tweet Email Short URL A HOMELESS MAN who brandished a toy gun on the Dart and frightened an American passenger has been given a 12-month suspended sentence at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.Mark Byrne (39) was “under the influence and giggling” when he waved the air pistol out the Dart window on a summer’s afternoon last year, the court heard.The father-of-one, with an address at a homeless unit on Newtown Avenue, Blackrock, Co Dublin, pleaded guilty to possessing a realistic imitation firearm at Connolly Station on 10 July 2017.When asked by gardaí why he had bought the gun, Byrne said he got it to shoot out the back of streetcars, adding that he lived at a homeless shelter and “didn’t have much of a life”.Passing sentence today, Judge Karen O’Connor said Byrne had displayed “an extraordinary degree of immaturity” but had not intended to harm anyone.“I accept that he’s extremely sorry and has learnt his lesson,” she said, agreeing that the offence was “at the lower range” of seriousness.WitnessesGarda Siobhán Frisby told Marie Torrens BL, prosecuting, that there were three witnesses sitting across from Byrne on the light rail carriage, one of whom was an American woman travelling to Bray with her husband.Grace Malone told gardaí that she spotted a man picking up orange pellets from the floor and wondered “what the hell” he was doing.The man appeared to be under the influence and shooting at someone, she said, although she didn’t know at whom he was aiming.She said the man shot out the window and said: “Go on, ya gobshite!”Malone said she was in fear that the man was going to shoot at her, but her husband knew straight away that it was an imitation firearm.ArrestGarda Frisby saw Byrne waving the handgun out the window of the carriage and giggling before he was arrested by gardaí.The pistol was analysed by Garda ballistics experts and found to be a realistic imitation firearm branded an “airgun”.Byrne’s backpack also contained about 1,000 Chinese-made 6mm calibre plastic pellets.Byrne told gardaí he’d bought the gun after he saw it in the window of a toy shop on Talbot Street.He said it was supposed to cost €8, but he got the gun and a thousand pellets for €10.“I don’t have much of a life, living in a homeless shelter,” he said.Previous convictionsByrne has 69 previous convictions, the vast majority of which were for public order offences in the District Court.Garda Frisby agreed with Anne-Marie Lawlor SC, defending, that Byrne was extremely naive and cut somewhat of a “pitiful” figure.The garda further agreed with Lawlor that the gun was something “a young fella might play with” and could be bought by anyone in a toy shop.Lawlor said her client did not have any realisation of how his actions might have been perceived by others and was very unlikely to engage in this type of behaviour again.The court heard that most of Byrne’s history of offending stemmed from his addiction issues but that he had not been in trouble since this offence.Byrne has a health complaint which requires ongoing medical supervision, his counsel said.Judge O’Connor warned Byrne that if he breached his bail conditions there would be serious consequences, to which he replied that he understood.Leaving the court, Byrne said to the judge, “Cheers, thanks a million. Sorry for wasting the court’s time and the police’s time.” By Jessica Magee Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

McEnernyOgle takes oath as mayor of Vancouver

first_imgAnne McEnerny-Ogle started off the new year Monday by taking the oath of office as mayor of Vancouver.However, the late-afternoon swearing-in at the Vancouver Firefighters Union Hall was just the first of two ceremonies marking the ascent of Vancouver’s first female mayor. McEnerny-Ogle will take the oath again Monday at the first Vancouver City Council meeting of the year.McEnerny-Ogle said she didn’t want to wait eight days to officially take office. Former Mayor Tim Leavitt’s term ended Sunday.“With Jan. 8 being so late, I didn’t want to go a full week without the city having a mayor,” she said. “With our luck, something would happen and the city wouldn’t have an official mayor here.”State Supreme Court Justice Susan Owens performed the first ceremony.“(She) was down here visiting her family, so we grabbed her and we did a quick ceremony,” McEnerny-Ogle said.The ceremony location wasn’t a coincidence — the Union Hall is the same spot where McEnerny-Ogle announced her mayoral candidacy in January 2017.“It seemed like a full circle to complete it and thank all the folks who were with us a year ago,” she said.McEnerny-Ogle could have scheduled her oath at the last council meeting in 2017, or up to 10 days before Jan. 1.Those rules also apply to Councilor Alishia Topper and Linda Glover. Topper and Glover will join McEnerny-Ogle at the Monday meeting for an official swearing-in ceremony.last_img read more

How Many Gambians Are Either Repartriated Or Are On The

first_imgQUESTION OF THE DAYHOW MANY GAMBIANS ARE EITHER REPARTRIATED  OR ARE ON THE WAY TO BE REPARTRIATED  THIS YEAR?Many Gambians have left the country for different reasons. However there is no denying that the sending of remittances has been a major motivating factor for the migration of migrants to other countries, especially the youths. Now it is clear that the road to the developed countries is being blocked so that there will be no back way.Those who find themselves inside those countries are being sent to detention centres in those countries and sent back home.Reports from Gambian returnees reveal that countries like Libya where instability prevails are being used to make it impossible for those migrants to reach Eurupe. They are being subjected to inhuman and degrading punishment as deterrent to others in order to discourage them from taking the journey.It is important for the government to establish a reception centre for the returnees so that they could be given proper counseling by experienced and competent staff in order to give them further guidance and support to have a new start.Many of these young people are yearning for jobs or means to start a business in order to make a living. At least a country that is discouraging the use of the back way must be ready to engage partners to support projects for the economic empowerment of the youths.last_img read more

Hulu tops 25 million subscribers but still trails Netflix by miles

first_img Share your voice Post a comment 0 Tags TV and Movies Digital Media Hulu has been adding subscribers but remains much smaller than rival Netflix.   Sarah Tew/CNET Hulu surpassed 25 million total subscribers across all products in 2018, the company said Tuesday, an increase of 8 million from a year earlier. Like all other subscription streaming video services, Hulu is still far behind global leader Netflix, which had 137 million members worldwide at the end of September. But Hulu noted its milestone means it has more video customers than even the biggest cable and satellite TV companies in the US, which includes Comcast. The cable giant, which incidentally is one of Hulu’s parents, had 21 million residential TV customers at the end of September. (Awkward… )Although smaller than Netflix, Hulu was one of the vanguards of streaming television. As Netflix has secured its dominance, Hulu has grappled with a crowd of rivals to be one of the other services most consumers sign up for. That competition is set to only grow. Traditional Hollywood giants like Disney, Time Warner and others plan to launch their own versions of Netflix this year.In its end-of-year recap, Hulu said it’s the only service of its kind that has full seasons of 80 percent of the shows nominated for Emmys last year. And people are binge-watching there, too. For Hulu’s top 100 shows, more than half of all viewing sessions were for three or more episodes of the same series.Among other stats, Hulu said average time spent per subscriber each month increased 20 percent last year, and it said viewers who subscribe to both its on-demand service and its live-TV offering spend half of their time watching that on-demand or recorded programming. Hulu said it leaned in to that behavior by investing “significantly” in exclusive programming and improving its streaming technology. It reduced buffering by 90 percent, it said. Its advertising revenue hit a new high of $1.5 billion in 2018, up more than 45 percent. The median age of a Hulu viewer is 32, and the average annual household income was $93,000.Correction, 12:11 p.m. PT: This story initially misstated the year that Hulu’s advertising revenue hit a new high.

Cisco Systems to lay off 1100 employees as part of restructuring plan

first_imgA sign marking a Cisco office is pictured in San Diego, California, November 12, 2012.ReutersAfter surprising the industry and announcing 5,500 cuts jobs in August 2016, Cisco has dealt yet another shocker. The multinational company based in San José, California, announced on Wednesday, May 17, that it would lay off an additional 1,100 employees soon.Initial reports had suggested that the company would, in total, lay off about 14,000 employees, but Cisco later made an official announcement clarifying the numbers.CEO Chuck Robbins said that the reason behind such massive job cuts was a slowdown in the spending of the federal government, reported UPI. This move has also been called an extension of the company’s restructuring plan, which led to announcement of 5,500 sackings last year.Shares of Cisco fell 5.4 percent to $32 apiece late on Wednesday, after the firm announced the layoff plans.Additionally, the tech giant has also forecast a fall in its quarterly revenue, according to Fox Business. It now plans to focus on software and services instead of hardware, and Cisco has invested large amounts in cloud computing and artificial intelligence as part of the plan.”It took me several quarters to get the team to understand that we’re moving this way,” Robbins told Fox Business in an interview. He also explained how he plans to increase the revenue of the company through the software business. ReutersMeanwhile, Cisco employees aren’t the only ones that may be shown the doors soon. Automaker Ford too is likely to lay off about 10 percent of its global workforce to boost profits and its stock price.Though Ford hasn’t specifically clarified on the numbers, it did say it intended to concentrate on cost optimisation and higher efficiency.”We remain focused on the three strategic priorities that will create value and drive profitable growth, which include fortifying the profit pillars in our core business, transforming traditionally underperforming areas of our core business and investing aggressively, but prudently, in emerging opportunities,” Reuters quoted the Dearborn company as saying.”Reducing costs and becoming as lean and efficient as possible also remain part of that work. We have not announced any new people efficiency actions, nor do we comment on speculation.”The move comes at a time when there have been doubts surrounding CEO Mark Fields and his strategy. While the company has made profits in the past and remains a key player in the automobile industry, Ford stock has seen a decline of 17 percent since January to $10.94 per share.last_img read more

It does require 2 x AA batteries though.It’s a great idea and I know many people will be yelling “finally!” but there are a few downsides with the iCade. It’s pretty big and bulky, not exactly something you can fit in your pocket so how many people will really want to take it will them for gaming on the go? It’s also very pricey, at $69.99 you could probably pick up a secondhand DS instead. It all depends on how much gaming you truly do on your iPhone but if you’re a real hardcore gamer, you’ll want to stick to your Vita or DS.Get it at ThinkGeeklast_img read more
