Rabat – The Atlas Lions performances during the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers are still mesmerizing international football figures. For Spain’s national football team coach, Julen Lopetegui, Morocco’s national football team is the best in Africa.The international former Spaniard footballer held talks with Spanish daily sports news outlet Marca about his plans for the 2018 World Cup. In the interview, the 51-year old coach talked about La Roja’s Group B opponents: Iran, Morocco and Portugal.As he was speaking about Morocco, Lopetegui said that he believes that Morocco is the best team in Africa, adding that the Atlas Lions “achieved their objective in a wonderful way, without letting in any goals and by knocking out Ivory Coast, one of Africa’s strongest teams.” In the World Cup first round, Morocco has finished unbeaten in front of the continent’s tough teams, including Mali, Gabon and Cote d’Ivoire.This is not the first time Lopetegui expresses his admiration for Morocco’s team performances and achievement. After the World Cup final draw, which took place in Moscow on December 1, Lopetegui said that  “one of the toughest teams, is the Moroccan squad, who excluded the Ivorian team in the World Cup qualifiers.”Speaking about Spain’s future rivals, Lopetegui said that Portugal is the “champion of Europe” as it has “the best players in history, they have a great generation and they have a coach with a lot of experience.” For the Spaniard, the Iranian squad “has been the best team in Asia over the past five years, ahead of Japan and South Korea.”Lopetegui also shared with Marca his vision of what is leadership. For him, leading means “convincing, specifically convincing everyone to give the best that they have in search of a common goal.” He added that football is “a team sport and one of our main strengths is that we have great players who are committed to our common goal, both with the ball and without it.”Morocco will play against Spain on June 25 after facing Iran on June 15 and Portugal on June 20. read more

TORONTO — Sears Canada Inc. says executive chairman Brandon Stranzl has resigned from its board of directors following court approval last week for the retailer to begin its liquidation sales.The company says his services are no longer required.Sears Canada has been operating under court protection from creditors since June.Stranzl had led a group that was interested in buying the retailer and turning its fortunes around.However, no deal was reached and the company was granted approval last week to begin the process to liquidate all of its inventory and close its doors.Sears Canada says it expects to start its liquidation sales on Thursday.

After an insurgency that forced elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide to go into exile in February 2004, the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) has spent more than a year re-establishing order in the Caribbean country, especially in two shanty towns, Bel Air and Cité Soleil, in the capital Port-au-Prince.In a wide-ranging news conference earlier this week, Special Representative of the Secretary-General Juan Gabriel Valdés said: “I say clearly that MINUSTAH will continue to use the necessary force that our mandate permits” to remove the capacity to inflict injury from those who do not understand the disarmament appeal or who understand only the language of violence and weapons.In the difficult year, the mission’s drive to respond to the armed gangs seeking to prevent the elections had not weakened, he said. Since the cabinet was re-shuffled at the end of June and recent appointments were made within the Haitian National Police (HNP), tangible progress has been made in the fight to increase security.For the first time since MINUSTAH’s arrival, he said, they could see a significant improvement in security, with abductions and other criminal acts having decreased considerably since mid-July, and these successes had to be followed up.Party registration was closed on Monday and all parties would have representatives and all the voters would have the opportunity to vote for the candidates of their choice, Mr. Valdés said.”We believe in an inclusive electoral process because it confers a profound legitimacy,” he said, adding that the parties had agreed that 30 per cent of the candidates fielded would be women.A new government would be installed by 7 February no matter the changes in other deadlines, he said. The Government’s electoral commission has extended the voter registration period by six weeks, until 15 September, for the elections scheduled for November and December.For voter registration, more than 429 centres were operating across the country, he said.Since last Friday the residents of Bel Air were able to register at the National Fort, where Brazilian UN peacekeepers and the Haitian National Police were providing permanent security. On the first day, more than 400 voters signed up, Mr. Valdés said.In Cité Soleil, registration was also continuing under strict security surveillance, he said.He called on the political parties to accept the challenge of working out concrete programmes to solve the big social, economic and security problems facing the country, saying the rights of Haitians included access to objective information on which to base their choices.On behalf of the mission, Mr. Valdés congratulated Haiti and Canada on the appointment of Haitian-born, award-winning broadcast journalist Michaëlle Jean of Québec as Governor-General of Canada. read more

“Schools in the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Libya, Mali, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Sudan, have been looted, pillaged, damaged and destroyed during military operations […], putting the future of an entire generation at risk,” Leila Zerrougui, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict told the African Union’s Peace and Security Council during the body’s third annual Open Session on children and armed conflict.Attacks against schools and their military use have become a common aspect of today’s conflicts, with long-term consequences, especially on fragile education systems. The Special Representative emphasized the heavy burden placed on communities and post-conflict societies to rebuild or repair schools and bring back skilled teachers.“The African Union and its member States can and must make a difference by including measures to end and prevent attacks against schools in domestic legislation, including criminalization of these acts, and must hold perpetrators accountable,” she said.She called on Member States to endorse the Safe School Declaration, developed in 2015 through an inter-governmental political process, and commit to implement the “Guidelines for Protecting Schools and Universities from Military Use during Armed Conflict” adopted in December 2014.The Declaration has already been endorsed by 15 African countries.In conclusion, Ms. Zerrougui recalled that the international community has firmly put the protection of schools on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Developmentand urged Governments to take action to realize that collective commitment.The World Humanitarian Summit will be held on 23-24 May in Istanbul, Turkey. read more

Ohio State freshman right fielder Dominic Canzone bats in the bottom of the seventh inning against North Carolina Greensboro. Credit: Edward Sutelan | Lantern reporterTo say the Ohio State baseball team had an up-and-down 2017 season might be too generous. It limped to a 22-34 overall finish, including an 8-16 conference record, and did not qualify for the Big Ten tournament.In particular, the pitching staff performed uncharacteristically poor, with an ERA climbing above the 5.00 mark for the first time since head coach Greg Beals took over in 2011.“We know it’s not acceptable to have the record we did last year here at Ohio State,” redshirt senior pitcher Adam Niemeyer said. Despite last season’s struggles, sophomore outfielder Dominic Canzone and senior pitcher Seth Kinker both said this team expects to compete for and win a Big Ten title.Being fresh off an 11th-place Big Ten finish does not provide much reason to believe that goal is attainable. But the return of several starters and a renewed chemistry provides hope for the Buckeyes.Niemeyer said a main issue with last year’s team was the growing pains involved in having “17 or 18 new players in key roles.” This year’s team will not have that problem. Beals used the word “feeling” to describe the attitude last season’s group had as opposed to “attacking” like he expects this squad to do.“I see a lot better baserunning, being able to go first to third, being able to score from first base,” Beals said. “Dirt-ball reads, having some action in counts where in a 3-1, 3-2 count where we think there’s gonna be action with the bat we’ll get runners started. Just little things like that.”The Buckeyes will return all of their starting pitchers from a season ago except Jake Post. Junior Ryan Feltner, who was recently listed as the top-ranked Big Ten prospect by both D1Baseball.com and Perfect Game scouting services, has struggled in the past, but could prove to be the ace of the staff. He already has been named as the regular-season Friday night starter.To fill out the starting rotation, Beals also will look to Niemeyer and fellow redshirt senior Yianni Pavlopoulos, along with junior Connor Curlis and sophomore Jake Vance. All five of those players have started at least five games for Ohio State, and only Vance has fewer than 24 game appearances.Curlis will take the mound first for the Buckeyes this weekend during the Snowbird Classic, Beals said.“[Curlis] is working very hard,” Kinker said. “He works with Feltner who, honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone work as hard as Feltner.”Kinker, who had 54 strikeouts and a 2.95 ERA last season, headlines a bullpen that features four additional seniors. Experience won’t necessarily translate to performance on the mound though, especially on the back of a poor performance from the pitching staff last year. Niemeyer expects his fellow hurlers to improve their control.“[We want to] fill up the zone early in counts, ‘cause that gives us an advantage,” Niemeyer said. “You just have to have the mindset if someone hits a first-pitch ground or fly ball that’s a good thing. You don’t have to try to strike everyone out.”The Buckeyes maintained all but two starters from last season’s starting lineup. Among the returnees is sophomore Conner Pohl at third base, who was second on the team with a .325 batting average last season. Last year’s primary third baseman Brady Cherry is back playing second base. Canzone will be in right field once again; he led the team with a .346 batting average and was second with 36 RBI. He also stole 13 bases.“I’m very confident with the guys that we’re gonna put on the field this year,” Canzone said. “All around it’s just a lot of great chemistry across the board, this team. I’m just excited and it’s the most fun I’ve had, honestly, in a preseason.”Junior catcher Jacob Barnwell is back behind the plate after 51 starts last season, and junior college transfer Kobie Foppe rounds out the infield at shortstop with a defensive style Beals called “smooth.” Malik Jones, another junior college transfer, will be in center field.An intriguing development within the batting order is the group of athletes vying for playing time at first base, left field and designated hitter.“We’ve got several capable bodies. Bo Coolen and Noah McGowan are both gonna get playing time at first base, McGowan can play some left field and DH, Nate Romans can DH, [Tyler] Cowles can play left field and DH,” Beals said. “We’re gonna be able to wiggle and play some guys that are hot.”Ohio State opens its season Friday against UW-Milwaukee as part of the Snowbird Classic. read more

first_imgWhen it comes to people making games inspired by existing properties, it is only a matter of time before the rights holders bring the hammer down on those projects. Nintendo in particular is notorious for killing off any and all fan-made projects. Just this year, the company shut down a Metroid II remake, as well as took down an archive that contained full issues of Nintendo Power magazine. Now? It has shut down a No Man’s Sky/Super Mario Bros mash-up. However, there is a twist to this tale.For those who may not know, last week saw the launch of No Mario’s Sky by a small team of developers. In the game, Mario boards a ship and travels to various planets to run around and stomp on indigenous wildlife. The game practically screamed to be taken down by Nintendo, so it came as no surprise when it was.However, that isn’t the end of the tale. No Mario’s Sky has been rebranded as DMCA’s Sky — a hilarious snub at Nintendo’s laywers. This rebranding now ensures that Nintendo can’t have the game shut down. The game’s description has been changed to the following: “Spaceman Finn search for Princess Mango in an infinite universe.” It also says: “Featuring crazy Moombas, An Infinite Universe, Muscle, Amazing Physics and a Radical Space Ship; DMCA’s Sky is the hackneyed remake-gone-mashup you’ve been craving.”The story surrounding No Mario’s Sky/DMCA’s Sky can be seen as a lesson for anyone looking to do a fan remake game. Perhaps instead of creating something that is directly tied to an existing IP, folks should create original titles that are inspired from a source material. This way, all the hard work that goes into creating a game isn’t in vain when the rights holders come knocking.You can download DMCA’s Sky here.last_img read more

first_imgIn the wake of its recent announcement to convert to an all-digital portfolio, Ziff Davis Enterprise realigns its eWEEK editorial staff. This translates to the division of eWEEK editor-in-chief duties between two staffers: Scott Ferguson and Chris Preimesberger.Ziff Davis Enterprise CEO Steve Weitzner says in a company statement, “”The versatile nature of digital platforms allows IT professionals to not only search for news and information when and where they want it, but also to enjoy richly-endowed multimedia analytical and feature content. To reflect this dual utility of digital platforms we are implementing a new editorial management structure…”Ferguson will act as editor-in-chief of eWEEK news, managing reporting staff and news for e-newsletters, websites, digital magazines and mobile apps. Preimesberger is named EIC of eWEEK features and analysis, focusing on industry trends and investigative content in addition to acting as the “face of the magazine in the marketplace.”Other changes include the departure of Eric Lundquist, formerly eWEEK editorial director. Lundquist leaves Ziff Davis “to pursue other interests”. UPDATE: Lundquist joins UBM TechWeb’s InformationWeek Business Technology Network as vice president and editorial analyst.  The publisher announced its decision to convert to digital only in late October, strategically focusing on traditional websites, mobile websites, tablets and digital editions. Its three print magazines (Baseline, CIO Insight and eWEEK) will be digitized for their January issues.Of eWEEK, CEO Weitzner tells FOLIO:, “We will publish it in the same way–it will go through the same editorial process, the stories will get vetted, they’ll be laid out by art, we just won’t print it or mail it. We’re going to invest that savings in content. We’ll be able to add editors for the first time in a while-we’ve been adding but we’ll be able to make a substantial investment in content-we’ll have more vehicles, so we’ll need it.”last_img read more

first_imgSnapdeal will revamp its brand ahead of the Diwali season this year. The third largest online marketplace by sales is set on strengthening its market share which is currently dominated by rivals Amazon and Flipkart.The company is planning a new logo, similar to the Dropbox logo, with a new colour palette, replacing the company’s trademark red and blue logo and a new tag line, two anonymous sources were quoted by Mint as saying. The campaign is being spearheaded by co-founder Rohit Bansal who is said to be working with advertising agency McCann Erickson.The new brand will be marketed across television, print, YouTube and social media next month. The newspaper said it did not receive information on the investment behind the rebranding activities.Snapdeal had announced earlier this month that it would spend Rs. 200 crore for the festive season campaign which will run for 60 days. The online retailer is known to introduce a new tagline ahead of festive season every year.Last year Snapdeal roped in Bollywood star Aamir Khan to promote the brand which went by the tagline ‘Dil ki deal’ (deal that touches the heart). In 2014, the eCommerce company anchored its message on thrifty spending through ‘Bachaate Raho’ which means ‘keep saving.’The largest online marketplace retailer Amazon India too had come up with taglines such as ‘Apni Dukaan’ meaning ‘my shop’ and ‘Aur Dikhao’ which means ‘show me more.’In the festive period from September-November last year, the major players in e-Commerce were estimated to have spent Rs. 500 crore on marketing, almost as close to the total marketing expenditure of Rs. 600 crore for the entire 2014. Jeff Bezos led Amazon spent Rs. 224 crore whereas Flipkart had spent Rs. 70 crore, according to Tam Media Research cited by cash-back website Cash Deal Kart.The three online retailers together spent Rs. 1,200 crore in the first nine months of 2015, up 46 percent from the preceding year.last_img read more

first_imgOne of the world’s top three music festivals, Sunburn Goa returns this year as a prelude to its 10th anniversary in association with Goa Tourism. It will begin from December 27 at Vagator Beach, Goa.Spearheading the performance on the first day of the festival is David Guetta, who is ready to surprise the audience once he steps on the stage. He revealed to Millennium Post that he is planning to go against the established EDM format and create new formulas by combining different genres of music.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’He is busy experimenting and is currently attempting to combine urban rhythms with electronic music. Here’s an easy one. What are the five things you cannot live without? Five is tad too long! Let’s make it just two, my laptop and my manager.How excited are you, now that you are playing in this country for the third time? Well India always holds a very special place in my heart. It’s always thrilling to see your fans all over again and surprise them with some classics. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixWhat do you plan to do in Goa other than your performance in ‘Sunburn’? I’ll just be flying in, taking a nap at the hotel and heading straight to my gig. In case I do catch up on sleep on the flight, I may go look around a little. This is my third visit to Goa!What are the tracks you will be playing at ‘Sunburn’? How different will they be from the previous performances? Let’s say it’s all a surprise, but it’s Guetta Reloaded! I feel I have a responsibility towards my fans and I feel the urge to surprise them each time I come up on the stage. It’s more motivating. You have been selected to create the anthem of UEFA Euro 2016 tournament and recently, there was a buzz that you want football aficionados and their music to be in the core of the track… How far have you progressed? I’m so excited to be working towards uniting fans in Europe. UEFA EURO 2016 is all about the fans and I want to put them at the heart of everything, especially the song. Music, like sport brings people together, so I’m trying something very special and asking people around the world to unite and add their voices to this anthem.You have collaborated with so many artists across the world, who is the next artist you’ll be working with? I started a record with Hozier, and I would really love to get back in the studio with him. His record was the most amazing one of 2014. It was so full of emotion, and my thing is to combine emotion with the energy of dance music. That was always my winning ticket, if I could say, my trick to have dark, emotional elements and also happy, energetic elements together.Where do you see yourself ten years from now? DJing on the moon maybe! On a serious note, I’d love to get new producers discovered and introduce a brand new sound. DJing is a different job now. When we do a show, it’s a concert, and we’re selling ourselves as artists and not DJs. Now I’m trying to look for a way to go against the established format again because I think the essence of dance music is to go against formats.I think the challenge of the upcoming year for dance music is to go against our own format. It’s like we came such a long way to get there and be respected as much as hip-hop and rock, but now what are we going to do with it? I’m trying to combine urban rhythms with electronic music.EDM was super-exciting because it was so new and different. And now I feel the need to change the formula again, you know? I am making a lot of new music at the moment. It’s an exciting time for me again. The success of Hey Mama is great because it makes me want to create more records like this.last_img read more
